Edge of Glory

If you have managed to get into the newest round of Collabor88 this morning, then you’ve probably seen these new scooters by {what next}. But, just in case you haven’t- you might want to keep on trying.

These Monaco scooters come in eight colors and are loaded with options. They are rideable and menu driven, with custom animations and modifiable features. Each color also comes in two versions (sold separately,) a luggage version that rides 1-2 avatars, or a scooter with attached sidecar that can hold you and up to two friends. You can even customize the license plate, which I only noticed after I had already taken my pictures. Of course.

Even better, are the prices. Single colors are 88L (scooter,) 188L (w/sidecar) and just 988L for the entire fatpack, which is definitely worth it.

My Outfit:

Maitreya – Lara Mesh Body
LpD – Atena Dress (mesh) (white)
Exile – Temptation Waits (mesh) (light blondes)
Gos – Floppy Hat w/ scarf (mesh) (white)

What Next – Monaco Scooter w/ Plain Luggage (mesh) (ivory) NEW RELEASE @ Collabor88

Lookbook 1

With my interests rapidly growing beyond just fashion, I’ve decided to segregate my fashion themed posts into their own category as lookbooks, and leave the options for titles open to everything else.

With that being said, does anyone remember the fashion trend that were gaucho pants? These versatile cropped pants seem to evolve every ten years or so and are steeped in fashion history. They recently came back into style back in 2008 after a long hiatus through the 80s and while their parentage are a breed somewhere between capri and skirt, they’ll forever live in our hearts as a fashion staple.

In this case, Cocoro Lemon has recently released these wide-legged cropped pants for faMESHed and instantly, I was transported back in time. Hello… gaucho pants 2.0, anyone? Nevertheless, whatever they may be called or irrespective of whether gauchos have made a comeback or not, I had to have these, and I knew exactly the shoes I would pair them with, too.

New shoes from Essenz for the Gacha Garden are a must have. They are strappy and sexy and oh so drool worthy. My good friend Avril can attest to the fact that I probably got a little too excited when I saw them, but hey… we did have fun gacha-ing it up to get the full set. Speaking of which, the Gacha Garden is a unique gacha event that offers incentives for the number of times a machine is played. Every twenty plays, you’ll receive a ‘Seed of Inspiration,’ which is a unique and transferable item that are retired at the end of the event. The SOI for Essenz is a fantastic HUD with six limited edition colors, so grab it now before it’s too late. The Gacha Garden ends February 29th.

#BeLike Meme

If anyone is up to date on their social media, then you’ve probably met Bill. Bill is well… a stick figure. But, not just any stick figure. Bill is slightly crass, passive-aggressive and completely opinionated when it comes to policing his friends to be just like him. In growing popularity, Bill is already forming his own equally snarky group of fellow stick figures, including wife Emma and girlfriend Bella. Shame on you, Bill.

With that being said, I’ve jumped onto Bill’s bandwagon and created my own “Be Like” meme. While I don’t desire to have anyone be like me, I’d love to see what you all come up with! Feel free to post your “Be Like” meme’s in the comments, or link back so we can all see how to be just like you! ;)

You can check out Bill’s site here or if you’re really into your social media- visit Bill’s facebook page!

I Think I Wanna Marry You

Hey there readers!

I know it’s been a while since my last post, but I promise I have not disappeared! In fact, I am gearing up to return steadily here soon. With being caught up in that pesky business of real life and a hard on for sim design of late, I’ve been a little lazy when it comes to posting. I’ll make it up to you, I promise!

In the meantime, Petey and I are celebrating our two year partnership and it’s made me a little giddy towards all the fun stuff that goes into renewing our vows. It also brings back fond memories of the passed three years we’ve actually been together, and all the dumb people who made us that much closer.

I wanted to do a pretty shot that would incorporate our impending nuptials and the lovely pair of shoes I’ve chosen, from Glamistry. They’re not a new release by any means, but are definitely one of my favorite pairs. I just love the simple elegance of the high heel (sans platform) and the added touch of bling on the side.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

I love Christmastime!

In fact, I just love the holidays in general- the festivities, the laughter, family and yes… the shopping!

I also happen to love decorating, which is why I haven’t been available much lately, as the holidays have taken me by storm. But, with that being said, I had to stop in and spend some time decorating the home front with some of the newest, and most festive goodies currently available at the newest round of the Arcade.

By now, the majority of the sim lagging crowd has dispersed and so a smooth cab ride over will take you to some of my favorite holiday treats and items shown here, including new puppies from OMEN, classic Christmas bears by Boogers, the traditional advent calendar from Trompe Loeil and lots of amazing decor pieces from some of my favorite designers.
