Perfect

Have you ever had a song so stuck in your head that it toys with your emotions? The new song by Ed Sheeran is doing that to me. I can’t stop singing it!

Ironically, the title fits the design of this new sweater by Tetra. Perfect! It’s just long enough to be worn as a dress, or paired with pants or tights and I am absolutely envious of the frilly side ruffles.

The poses I used caused a break in the bottom front of the skirt which I edited out, but they were so minor and unlikely to be an issue most cases.

I went a daring and paired the shortness of the sweater with fishnets and thigh high boots from Empire, available at the new round of Collabor88.

On a side rant note, me and a friend of mine were discussing the changes in events over the years. I mean, whatever happened to the Collabor88 of years ago, where most items were just 88L? Now, you’re lucky to find something less than twice that. I get that mesh has advanced and the effort that goes into some of these really amazing creations is worth the extra bucks. Heck, I know I buy my fair share without even glancing at the price. But maybe its just me when I feel that what used to be a bargain event for all avatars has become something that not everyone can afford. There are definitely still too many new avatars out there that need the influence of a good event with top creators to get their foot in the door of non-noobness.

What are your thoughts?

Happy New Year!

Yes, so I know this post is a few days late, but I wanted to think long and hard on what some of my SL New Year’s Resolutions might be. I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot this year but, as always, there is room for improvement.

  1. Spend more time learning and applying new Photoshop techniques to some of my pictures. I typically use the most basic versions to crop and slightly enhance my images and the more detailed I decide to get in editing, the more I will branch out and use the newer and more complex versions. I’d also like to spend more time with my drawing pen, which I am really loving, but still fight with from time to time.
  2. Expand on the content of my blog. I blog a lot about fashion because, well, I love it. But, I would like to spend more time on covering decor, events and yes, even the controversial subjects in my posts.
  3. Finish decorating our home. I love landscaping and playing around with home decor. But much to Petey’s dismay, I can never seem to finish one design or theme before I get bored and then start in on another. We’ve been together five years now and I don’t think I’ve finished a project yet. Even our home at the Grove sits with three unfinished rooms. Oops.
  4. Become more active on Social Media. The opposite is usually true for most people in RL. We spend way too much time on our devices, engaged in internet frivolity. But for us bloggers, social media is a big deal and I have been sorely lacking. I know, I know- I’m sorry!
  5. Update my blog. I was so glad when I finally finished this a few days ago that I put it on my list just so I can cross it off. I’ve certainly been overdue for a new look, and I even changed the name!

I’d love to hear what all of you resolve to accomplish this 2018. Feel free to comment or link below so that I can read up on your New Year’s resolutions!
