Indian Summer

Summer is in full swing and though it is by far my favorite time of the year, the insanity of these Southern temperatures makes me wish it were fall or winter already, not that we get very cool then either. Thankfully, in SL it doesn’t matter what time of the year it is, so I can wear all of my favorite summer fashions regardless of the temperatures the real world has to endure. For me, there is nothing more reminiscent of summer (and in my case, spring, fall and some of winter, too) than loose, flowing fabrics, lots of skin and fun prints. Naturally, I was able to incorporate a dash of this and that from some of my favorite events and their awesome themes and come up with my version of an approaching Indian summer masterpiece. What’s your favorite take on summer?

Black Label Angel

The new, all-exclusive Black Label line from Liv-Glam added this new pant outfit to its ranks recently. Angel of Harlem features classy trousers and sophisticated blouses in three interchangeable colors and textures (via HUD!) so that you can create several different looks.

I am really in love with this outfit. The high-waisted pants are a perfect fit for the tucked in floral and lace blouse, two of my favorite combinations. The neutral colors can lend this outfit to a variety of uses, but I decided to go a little office glam by adding an up-do and glasses.

Though there is nothing tragic about this outfit, I did add a fun new ring by tea soup for the Oneword Event, whose voting for the second round word runs through March 26th.

My Attic & 21Shoe Event

Not only is there a new round of My Attic out (finally!) where you can grab fabulous releases for just 99L, but there is a new event that just started yesterday! In case you missed the new 21Shoe Event, here is the low down: every month, a group of designers will be offering two limited edition shoes for the price of one. That’s right, BOGO baby! If you join the inworld group, you’ll get a notecard for each rounds’ designers. Keep your eye out though, each round only lasts 24 hours, starting on the 21st of each month and ending midnight on the 22nd!

Here, I am wearing these special edition boots from Eudora! I am already loving this event as this is a designer I am not familiar with, but whose quality of work is amazing! The textures are so crisp and real and I love the designs. Squee!

Bizarre Dandelion

Zodiac has so many great new releases for the Gemini round! I’ve already blogged several great pieces on the Hottie Cooterati blog, but I wanted to show off another piece that I picked up today! As if it isn’t obvious what my favorite color is, I just had to have this Dandelion One Piece from Valentina E. It’s so bright and cheery and goes perfect with the Bizarre Flower set from LaGyo that I’ve had in my inventory for ages.

Eaters Coma also has a great new release in two versions, one for standard breast sizes and also one for Lolas. I love the thought that Kumii put into her design because as much as I love to wear longer styles, I have trouble finding ones that fit when I do actually wear my Lolas appliers. So, if you are definitely sporting a full bosom, do check out this new hairstyle from Eaters Coma!

I’ve also been taking a lot of pictures at my home sim lately as I can honestly say it is about 90% complete! It’s been under a constant remodel for almost a year now and will never be finished enough for me, but I love that it allows me to create exactly the backdrop I need for whatever picture comes to mind. I almost always settle for something with a water or beachy feel to it, but I love going out and seeing what everyone else comes up with! What are your home sim preferences when it comes to decorating? I’d love to hear all about it!
