Resolution

Carla 2

Lately I have been changing my blog layout and have been playing with the size of the pictures aswell. In the past, I found the images were a bit too small and not standing out. Now, I am under the impression they are a bit too big and you cannot see the whole picture at once. So I am trying another sizing: 600 x 750 pixels. On my computer with my resolution, it works fine. I am curious wether it is ok for you with different screens so let me know what you think about it please.

I am also working on a new shape I will try to release soon, well, when I am satisfied with it which might not be so soon. Here is a first glimpse of Carla, though the shape in that state already doe not exist anymore as I have changed the chin since I have taken the pictures.

I know I won’t become rich with selling shapes. I can tell I am actualy spending more money styling a shape than earning anything from the sales. It does not matter much, it is part of my fun in Second Life, it has been before I have started to blog and I guess it is the case for a lot of people who are doing the same. So I just hope you’ll like this one.

In LaViere

Hello,

In LaViere

Let’s go back to some good old building techniques blogging with the 2011 Summer Collection from LaViere by Azure Electricteeth. I’ve mixed several pieces to create this rather elegant and classical look. The wide pants, while they are made of a layer and four sculpted prims have the big asset of showing my avatar curves. Though she is rather thin, I have made her with a curvy butt and a narrow waist which I find sexy.

Those wonderful Ren boots are the latest release from LeLutka but be aware they are made from meshes. I have heard a lot of people had no idea and have bought them while they were using old viewers. I have to say I hadn’t paid attention myself. I was just drooling at them, admiring how perfect they are and did not know they were mesh stuff until a friend told me. If you need reasons to finaly move to the new viewer, you have to have a look at those shoes. It is time to move forward, seriously!

Parisienne Boho

Hello,

Boho 2

There were several new cute releases this week-end, including two Dutch Touch Skins, MensJe and MegAn, and a Mimikri dress, emily, which has a vintage boho feel to it. If you are part of the Dutch Touch VIP group, the MegAn starterpack in cream is only at 400 L$. No idea how long it will last but it is worth to run to the store to get the deal. The skin is cute with far set eyes, tons of options like 3 eyebrows colors, freckles, moles, cleavage.

I’ve been walking for some hours wearing this look, with those great MIEL boots, color changeable to fit about anything, a clutch and matching tights from Croire but there was something missing, hair. I’ve tried several different styles, but I was not happy with what i was finding until I saw an advertizing for Plume, a new hair shop by Fauve Beaumont. Fauve is proposing us original couture styles, with accessories like this cute hat for the Parisienne coiffure, which adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to the look.

The Seasons Hunt was launched on saturday 15th January and will last for two whole weeks. I am not really into hunts, I can even say I am boycotting some of them for several reasons but in this case, I have to admit I am very pleasantly surprised as the designers have been very generous and are offering us awesome items, like the So Many Style Fur Shrug. Believe me, you want to look for it, but be warned, it is a well hidden one! One of the things I like about this hunt is you don’t have to find the gift in one store before being able to move to the next one. If you join the in world The Seasons Hunt(ers) group, you can find a notecard in the notices with the landmarks to the participating stores and tons of help from lovely people. So, you can choose to only visit the stores you like when you don’t have much time online or give a try at the whole list, which is really worth it.

Plum in the Snow

Hello,

In the Snow Plum

here’s my try at the 52 Weeks of color challenge, plum edition. I haven’t been able to do the blue and goldenrod weeks and I barely made it this time. But better late than never.

In the Snow Plum 2

It would have been a shame for me to skip that color as it is one i am using fairly often, SL or RL, it is stylish but not sad. It is also the occasion to share with you the new wonderful pants from Leezu. I’ve chosen here the short version as i wanted to wear the new Maitreya shoes and socks aswell but I love those pants so much i will probably use them in another color but with the full version this time.

This week again Fifty Linden Friday is offering us a gem, it is a haircut from !Lamb Slowly but surely, this store is becoming one of my favorites for hairs. It is in the top 3 for sure. The styles are original with good textures. I prefer the blondes or light browns to the reds or copper for once, which is perfect as it is often the colors offered for Fifty Linden Friday.
