SL Disneybounding 3 – Gaston…

As a specimen yes I’m exasperating!! (my ad-lib)   My.. what a guy that Gaston! Hate him, love him.. eat.. wait.. never mind. When I think of Gaston, the first word that comes to my mind has always been, pompous. And so there in lay my inspiration. I wanted to find  wear, something outlandish, loud, super out of the norm, weird even!   A look this screamed, “I’m here, like it or lump it”.   If this doesn’t say Gaston, I might just go out and get my own Le Fou to lick my.. shoes.. ok??!   This is the Molly dress, created by riri Bazar of Hate Me and Eat Me. So appropriate wouldn’t you say? And even though the bold colors are more ‘Wonder Woman-esque’ rather than Gaston.. the message behind the design is clear to airheads like me.. “Take whatever booty you can find, but remember: the Beast is mine!”.. NO no, darnit that’s the wrong message. Bad keyboard! Featured Items:Outfit>>h.m.a.e.m.

L2S 5.. It smells purple around here..

Taken with Singularity, edited on PSE11    Doing one of those spur of the moment posts in the middle of the night. That last shopping spurt when you can’t get into a full sim (aka Pose Fair 2013 at about 1am SLT). And something’s been driving my inventory wonky the past few hours.. did the sys admins fall asleep?    So, many of you know that Maya, the owner and designer behind Toki-Doki is back and she has released a set of cutesy cutesy Haru jackets (SO adorable). I’ve always loved her simple and minimilistic (sp?) approach to her designs and feature her pieces quite often. She and a handful of talented artists on the grid still incorporate painted on clothing and sculpts for which I am glad. Her mesh creations are awesome as well!   Do visit Toki-Doki’s main store and don’t forget to check the hyperlinks to the events!  raw img Featured Items:Jacket>>Toki-doki Haru Jacket violet flowers Available @ TDR 9!Pants>>erratic’s zoey leather pantsHeadband>>Toki-doki mighty headband 4Necklace 1>>MagicNook Easter Egg Necklace  Available @ TDR 9!Necklace 2>>glow studio’s …

Twisted Color Challenge Week 7- Truffle Valley

    Did I come close? Oh dear. Please forgive my color blindedness lol. See, this challenge is great, because I have to actually think. It’s also encouraging me to look at my RL wardrobe with a different eye as well! Never mind that I get fashion tips from my 13 year old teenager!     I used my client’s keyword filter and looked for yellow or mustard but nothing really popped out. So I figured lets try a bronze or gold and upped pop one of Gizza’s classic but oh so relevant ensembles, the Amorah (soil). I used to flaunt this number like a golden tower of slexiness around the club and it made a great talking piece for the Burlesque events :/ Sculpts are STILL in style btw.. just saying.    Granted its not technically yellow :(( I’m so so sorry!! Will try to put a more concerted effort for the next one. The ear pieces are the latest offerings from Remarkable Oblivion at this week’s SOHO Sample and my hair is from the …

Twisted Color Challenge Week 6 – Poetic Spa

   Aloha! Wanted to do a quick blurb about this lovely dress by Leri Miles of Leri Miles Designs. You can find the Gidget Floral dress this month at Fashion Limited. Fashion Limited is a monthly event that features quality content at competitive prices. There is a catch however! Only 50 items of each product are available, hence the ‘limited’, so do a quick limo hop and drop by.     I first learned of Leri Miles’ Designs at this year’s Fashion For Life and have since included LMD in my list of ‘go here and bring lotsa monies’ places^^.    Gradually catching up with everyone over at Sookie’s Twisted Color Challenge. If you like to think outside of the ‘color’ ‘box’, this challenge is perfect. I try to stay within the theme and yes, its kind of a hit and miss, but I am learning so much from this. Thank you Sookie for hosting TCC! On to the next shall we? Featured Items: Dress>>LMD Gidget Floral Dress in Creme by Leri Miles Available @ Fashion Limited! …

SL Disneybound Challenge 2- Kiss the Girl

“…. The human world is a mess. Life under the sea is better than anything they got up there.” Sebastian Zut alors, I have missed one!    Impulsive, spontaneous, rebellious…I think we all have a bit of Ariel’s spirit in us eh? I remember sitting in the theater as a wide-eyed 10 year old Lilo look-alike, wondering why was Ariel making such a fuss about getting out of the water?! I love the water! I can’t live too far from it either, even in soggy Seattle.    “Teenagers, you give them an inch, and they walk all over you.” .. how many of you parents lurking out there use this quote from Sebastian on a daily basis lol.     For this week’s SL Disneybound challenge, Kiss the Girl, I am wearing the FenxLeather Dress in blue from  Fleshtone which is available right now at this round of the SOHO Sample. I did have to keep checking the RL Disneybound Challenge to get an idea of the color palette so hopefully this is reminiscent of this scene …

L2S #4 Statement Necklaces, long coats and.. grid lines?

   Yeah I’m still learning how to get rid of those (grid lines). What’s that saying, we’re our own worst enemy? The problem is I use 3 different machines (computers/laptops) and only one of them has the SL Beta Viewer and ‘good’ graphics card. I’m not using that one right now hence that sexy line riding down the middle of the image^^    Yesterday I took a few pictures of the new Ruca Tease Patchwork Leather coat and not long after, Bon went ahead and sent me the next in the same line, the Lulumoon Ladies long coat, complete with mesh boy shorts. Her choice in the paisley like texturing and bold colors of black and pink I think made the outfit stand out. I really like this type of cut with the meshies btw and will be looking for more.    So this is where I learn that ‘styling’ thing yah? What do plunging necklines usually call for besides a place to hide hankies? A statement necklace! See I am learning! Decided on E-clipse’ …

Strawberry’s Social Media Meme

“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland    Folks, this is the mother of all memes. Strawberry Singh’ Social Media Meme is pretty in depth, and what I will appreciate most about this meme, will be ALL the connections we make. Strawberry is an absolute genius!!!   I wanted to take a bit to plug in Strawberry’s website here (for whomever is lurking) because like so many of you, her blog was my starting point and inspiration in taking that blogging leap. I could have chosen anything to yack about, Breedables, Events, People, Third Party Viewers Oo (I jest). But the wonderful world of SL Fashion has way too many goodies and the horizon is ever changing, never the same, regardless of templates and drama. And Strawberry’s website is chock FULL of information and links to other tuts, bloggers, tips and oh gosh.. we could go on..*pours you some tea*   So before that atrocious clock tells me its time to go to bed, let’s jump right …
