Slowing Down Time

So I was up for a promotion at another store location in my state and it is in a little seaside town. The interview went great and I love the area, but I didn’t get it, which could be a better thing in the long run.

The town is where I frequently vacation with my parents and it would be wonderful to finally move away from my hometown. This beachy sim, Jacks. is wonderfully stark, unlike the ones in the town that I applying. Most of the beaches have big cliffs surrounding them, but this is all open beach, much like its own island.

This month is Stuff My Inventory‘s Jewelry and Accessories Hunt, which has a boho theme. I am both a blogger and a merchant, look for my item in another post. Today, I am wearing creme spaghetti hairs Choker8 in bronze. It comes in multiple colors–a fatpack–and it has a neat “Celtic” knotted triangle (I don’t have any Irish ancestry). I am also wearing these nice turquoise feather earrings from Yokai, which are really well done, although I had to resize them because they were a tiny bit too big for the avatar. I have the link to SMI’s website with all the hints and LM’s for the hunt.

Crying at the Beach

The outfit was started by the tops, from Pixicat’s Bloom Jacket, which includes the fake shirt. It was for Collabor88’s February round, however, by the time this post goes live, it is likely it will be in the mainstore. The skirt is from Tres Blah, but it a really old item that I have kept. The shoes are from Ingenue, which is from a couple Collobor88 rounds ago. I love oxfords and saddle shoes, and I totally fatpacked them.

Now I must take a second to discuss my favorite applier store, Izzie’s. The socks and all the makeup is from Izzie’s. I have piles and piles of her socks and stockings and they are all really well done. I thought that the knee socks looked great with the look.

The texture work on the crying applier is just about amazing and is so well done. I also have been looking for decent Lelutka lip gloss. I find with some makeup brands the textures go beyond the lip bounds to create a bigger, pouter lip, which is not really the look I go for with Kitty. Izzie did such a great job with the lip glosses that I might just keep them on permanently.

Party Rock

I felt like busting-a-move tonight and got in the Carnival groove that broke me out of the screenshot!

https://gyazo.com/e3240ce352b2c03b4530fdc032d2321b

This sim I found, CIUDAD INK, is a Southern American club and has a cool looking sim. Second Life has a bunch of places where it is a not so nice spot in the city, but this feels unique and all the colors give a vibrant feeling to the locale. Sure this isn’t the nicest area, but it projects a whole other feeling, maybe like the feeling of Carnival itself. Hopefully, I am not fetishizing/exoticizing Southern America when I say this.

Cubic Cherry just released these gacha earphones at Whimsical. There are 16 ones to win (2 Rare and 14 Common). I am wearing the red rare which have the little target graphic on it. It sort of reminds me of Tim Burton or something.

I’m wearing one of Truth‘s February group gift hairs, Char. I am typically not the biggest fan of Truth–this critique goes back years–because I always feel like Rapunzel with all the hair piled on top of my head.  The styles are great and textures are amazing, just not the actual amount of hair that he uses.

The top is from fame femme at Tres Chic, which is about to close on the 5th, and loved the texture on the “fabric” and thought the zipper detail really added something to it. The skirt is from Emery at this month’s Collabor88. I love the embroidery on it, although I initially thought it was going to be longer. Emery is fast becoming my go-to brand. The quality of the textures and mesh is always amazing and the style is that happy medium between sexy and covered. The shoes are the Strapped Vulcan hightops from a collaboration between FLITE. and REIGN.

Party Colors

For the jewelry, I am decked out in [tea.s], an indie brand, that is currently inactive due to the creator’s RL, but I can’t wait until she is back and creating stuff.The earrings are once again OXIDE‘s freebie.

Industrial Bad Girl

I don’t imagine Kitty as some tough brute, but rather the crime boss directing her own badass syndicated crime network!

https://gyazo.com/c47c447209fa05b84a9a90b63f0570b7

The inspiration for this look was inspired by the pants that are a part of the AdoreZ‘s Kenya Black Outfit that you can get at Square1. They have built-in chains and I took it from there.

The tattoo is really cool, from Arabic Tattoos at Square1, and I thought I should have gloves with it, so I got these from the Scarlett Designs from the Marketplace

The shoes are really old, but the quality from [Co57] still stands the test of time. The shirt is from REWIND and is from [Azuchi].

The jewelry is something I made for Jackpot Gacha last year. The “charms” are bullets and I have a bunch of different necklaces from this gacha, but I thought the rare looked best. You can play the gacha at my store, Kitty’s Claws! The bracelet is a freebie, that I will put back up on the Marketplace.

The hoops are another freebie from OXIDE, although you have be a subscriber or group member to get the gift.

Providence River

Despite all the fun colors of this round’s Collabor88, I went straight for the more autumnal tones, which is–well–par for the course in my real life.

https://gyazo.com/ad129f40eadb4bc9a5cc5fa8049e48a4

This look was inspired by Laura Tully, a stylist and fashion blogger from Boise, ID, who I follow on Instagram!

She shared a picture of herself wearing a pleated skirt with a tied t-shirt and I was really happy I bought the Collabor88 shirt from Emery and pleated skirt from ISON.

My hair is once again from Drot, from the REWIND event. I really like short hair and I love undercuts of all kind (except, largely, the Hitler Youth haircut). The lipstick is from Izzie’s  is a free gift at REWIND and comes in a bunch of muted shades.

My earrings are a freebie for all from OXIDE and come in several different metals. I also have this really nice dark quartz necklace from Paper Couture, which you can find on the Marketplace. How cute is my bag? It is another brilliant piece by mowie.

I will have more from Square1 in the next post.

90’s Cybering

So I grew up in the 1990s so the REWIND event brought up some memories, granted through the lens of a child rather than a teen or adult.

https://gyazo.com/b2560a79d7f9540d4d57a37aa89dabe2

I thought this outfit looked pretty much like I would imagine 90’s clubgoers would wear to a party. If you were one of those people, am I authentic enough?

 I am being sponsored by the Square1 event starting with this current round and thought this dress from Eveline in the Box matched the 90’s aesthetic I was trying to go for and went perfectly with what I picked up at REWIND. Square1 runs from the first of the month to the 21st. Check out the link on my sidebar under the Sponsors section to get more information.

Cyber Monday

The dress comes in a bunch of colors with their own unique pattern on them so go to the event to pick up an outfit.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy (early) Valentine’s Day! I am going to be exhausted after work tomorrow so I thought I should post tonight, but for some of you, it is already time to celebrate!

https://gyazo.com/ea22172441d69e5d86c7838574eaeede

I’m bit of a loner and saw myself as a confirmed single in high school. I might get married in the future (if I still have the right -_-) but right now busy trying to get a career started and to move to New York. So time for a boyfriend, much less a husband is not really there.

Tonight I am wearing BlackRose’s February Group Gift, a lovely leather strap dress with black lace overlay. The quality is really good and you can’t beat a no join fee group.

The handbag is by a new brand to me, Mowie., and the handbags and other accessories are gorgous! I want them all! I thought the “Christina” bag looked the chicest with the dress, but Mowie. has so many options, some quirky and others looking like designer handbags in RL! It is currently only on the Marketplace!

Have a Cute Valentine's Day!

The cookie is from [Fetch] for the XOXO Hunt run by Tri Events. You TP to a store’s mainstore and type “XOXO” in chat and you will either receive the item or will have to wait another 24 hours to try again or you can purchase it for L$50. There are a bunch of quality stores in the hunt so check out the hunt’s blog. The event runs from February 11th – 25th, 2017.

February Drizzle

So it is been raining and pouring for several days now where I live and I want summer weather!  Australians, can you buy me a one-way ticket to Australia? (Of course, it rains there too, but you get my drift!)

https://gyazo.com/bd017eac9c08c5c6c883214d8c103aed

So I got these fun goodies in the mail from Cubic Cherry! First up is the bag that is shaped like a Gameboy, although this particular bag is called “CubicBoy.” It is at REWIND, a 90s themed event, which starts today and runs until the 28th! I also got the choker that is called the “Beast” Choker because of its little rose with petals falling down like in Beauty and the Beast and that is out at Collbor88.

Drizzle, my Fizzle

I am also wearing Tres Blah’s newest group gift for Valentine’s Day! It has four other graphics included. (My shirt pretty much sums romantic holidays for me! ^^) The hair is from Drot for The Epiphany and is a men’s hair, but I think it looks pretty cool on me!
