Ice Cream Dreams

I had a pretty crazy week at work and so I didn’t have much of a chance to post before the end of my week. I always feel like I am behind when it’s been too long between posts, but of course we have to take the good with the bad, right?

Ever since I picked up the new props for LeLutka mesh heads, I haven’t been able to put them down. In fact, they were the first items to go into my ‘favorites’ folder that is included with the new Firestorm update. You can read more about that here.

The ‘Oral Fixation’ line is available at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, where you can pick up the animated versions of a lollipop, bubble gum, cotton candy and yes, even ice cream. As you can tell from the HUDs shown below, there are so many options for each treat, including color changing parts, messy face details, multiple animations and static poses.

Bohemian Beauty

Mamma Mia

The new Katty pants and top from Addams SO reminds me of the bohemian style in Mamma Mia, and since I seriously just watched it the other day, I was already channeling the feels for this fun, summery vibe. I definitely cannot wait to go and see the sequel.

I am in love with the patterns for these pants, which are available in a pack for L$650. You can also purchase a separate ombre pack, or full fatpack for the almost standard L$1299. The top also comes in glitter and ombre options, or fatpack as well, for a total of 66 colors. The laces and belt can also be changed via HUD.

I was at a toss up between the headband from Miss Chelsea and this sunhat from American Bazaar and actually wore both with this outfit for a few days before I finally settled on the hat. What a statement it makes! You can also grab a few birthday gifts at the Epiphany, including a matching beach bag from American Bazaar.

Havana Nights

Havana

I’ve totally had some Latin fever going on this Summer. I was watching the second Dirty Dancing movie just the other day and of course the hit song by Camila Cabello has been lighting up every other station since it’s debut. I can’t seem to escape it.

So I’ve been looking for an outfit that could feed this Latin heat and of course, Tetra and Ison had to go and collaborate on this gorgeous new top and skirt combo. It definitely makes me want to get up and salsa.

In fact, I think it would be great to see a whole lot more collaboration from designers for well… Collabor88. Makes sense, no? I’d love to hear who you think should do a collaboration together!

Hand-Painted Adventures

When I first saw this particular pattern of the Hollie jumpsuit from Osmia, I fell in love. I was also struck with a sense of deja vu because for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out where I’d been reminded of this pattern before. So with that missing piece of inspiration, Ms. Hollie has been sitting in my inventory just waiting to come out.

So yesterday I was browsing through Pinterest and my obsession with home decorating and lo’ and behold, there it was. These hand-painted terracotta Italian tiles. You know the ones- as seen on back-splashes and fountains and the like.

Although the Rewind Event ended a couple of days ago, Hollie and I were finally able to catch up over a beautiful Merlot, talk about our mutual love of the sea and create an ensemble that reminds us of those breezy Italian summers.

Have you ever had a home decor meets fashion spark of inspiration? I’d love to hear about it!
