Fear the Beard

Sad November has a lot of great designers and items out this month, including a great selection of new releases for men! I’ve been loving the hipster style lately, especially on guys, and so Petey allowed me to play dress up with him for a few days. Between that, and sim hopping- this is what we came up with. I just love the ‘Fear the Beard’ style of shirt for the new hoodie combination by Body Factory.

Morning Wood

Sad November is back this year with tons of amazing exclusives from over 80 designers. Not only is it a beautiful sim, but you can perfectly capture the fall atmosphere from so many new releases. I picked up these new boots from Essenz to go with my new favorite piece from Tres Blah. Or, at least until Juliette releases something else.

Nevertheless, I decided to have some fun with the checkered frock and convinced Petey that he needed to swing an axe… shirtless. While I watched. Not a bad way to spend the morning, if you ask me. He also picked up a new beard and ‘stache from Deadwool, as well, which is totally in right now. Again, no complaints here.

Beach Stroll

Summer is here! Finally!

My favorite SL Summer event- Summerfest, kicked off yet another wonderful round and just as I foresaw, I spent a small fortune on all sorts of new goodies for the season, including hair, swimsuits and these new shorts from Paper Arrow. I love that they come with a hud to change the color and texture of the bikini part, but since it didn’t come with a matching top, I decided to pair it with the one from the new Eunoia bikini from Boom. The bikini isn’t fitted mesh, but it is mesh body friendly with an included re-sizable version that I had no trouble fitting to Lara. As always, it’s always best to try a demo beforehand.

Peter’s been away traveling and I hated the entire month he was gone- including his bad internet connections! Nevertheless, he’s home… finally! So naturally, we shopped ’til we dropped, then ran right to one of our favorite hangout spots to walk along the beach and snap some pictures.

Darkness Ahead

I’ve decided to do a bit of a dark themed post, inspired by the new round of Oneword, in all of it’s dark and twisty glory. You can find this pose by Mien poses and lots of other neat stuff here. The event runs from May 1st until May 15th!

Also new is this ‘Aura’ hairstyle by Catwa! An edgy bob with a long side-sweep of hair that teases your shoulders. I paired it with a darker color for a fierce look, or you can make it simple and sweet by going lighter for ultimate versatility.

Fresh for Summer

So, even though I’ve been out with an awful cold or some such thing for a few days now, my blogging heart was having some majoy shopping withdrawals. So, I sneaked on in and managed to grab a few great new pieces from the Kustom9 and Shiny Shabby events for one of my favorite, and classic boho inspired looks.

This new hair from Tableau Vivant is also right up my alley, with long, luscious locks in a flowing style. The original version comes with a texture changeable scarf, but I managed to modify it in exchange for a pretty flower crown instead.

The weather here has been insane, already in the 90s! I hope the rest of you are as ready for summer!

Green With Envy

If you’ve seen my Flickr stream lately, you’d see how enamored I am of this sim, “The Vineyard at Checkmate.” Not only have I been haunting the place lately, hanging out and snapping pictures, but I’ve also really been digging the lush green of colors of spring and true Italian charm that it brings. Though I did lag a bit in certain areas, I have to say that this is one of my new favorite sims, and if you haven’t noticed yet, I’ve already found my favorite spot!

New this week are some great pieces at some of my favorite events. The Roxy tank I am wearing from Erratic has a great cut out pattern in the shape of a skull on the back (not shown) and pairs perfectly with these new cargo pants from a designer (Addams) I am really beginning to love. Also new is this adorable charm necklace from Mynx. Chantel keeps getting better every time I see her stuff and I love the way this locket allows you to select the initials on the outside (via menu) but it also opens to where you can add a picture to the center heart. Hmm, I wonder what picture I should choose…

Lastly, Pose Fair 2015 is FINALLY open! Ruby and Shiloh have been working ridiculously hard and if you haven’t seen samples of some of the amazing poses and stuff out, you ought to check out the Hottie Cooterati blog, or better yet, head to Pose Fair yourself! I’d modeling poses from Dream Print, which is just one of many fabulous creators to be found!

Willow

I am in love with this dress! The moment I saw it, I knew it would be mine. In fact, we were destined for each other. I wasn’t even overly concerned about how short it is, because it is so classically gorgeous, that there is nothing even remotely trashy about it. ‘Willow’ is by Enfant Terrible and has the prettiest pearl embellishments. It just so happens to pair perfectly with the new boho bag from United Colors, both of which can be found at the new round of Shiny Shabby!
