“I feel pretty. Oh so pretty!”

I am feeling like a bombshell in my new outfit.

The events of April have started and the March ones are winding down and I thought I should show you what I got in my latest haul of items.

I am wearing this beautiful gown by [EvelineintheBox] at the Square1 event, which runs until the 21st of April. I haven’t worn many gowns in Second Life, largely due to not going to formal events. In the early days of Second Life, there were gowns galore and events to go often, but now everyone is far more casual when going out to have fun with friends.

The harness is from Cubic Cherry’s Vain gacha set at the Lootbox event. When I saw the previews on Plurk, I was salivating and looking for a chance to wear it. It is a rare (the other rare is a pastel harness). When I put it on for this blog, I knew it worked. The harness does have a strap around the waist, although it is obscured by the dress.

 If you don’t notice, I am wearing a new skin applier with new freckles. Glam Affair did this wonderful Maria applier for Powder Pack’s first Lelutka box. The skin feels like my system head more than the default skin that comes with the head. The freckles are from Izzie’s, once again from Powder Pack for Lelutka March box. I really like they way they came out. Izzie’s also did the eye makeup and the lashes, but the eyeshadow is from the Power Pack. Last but not least the lipstick came from Bold & Beauty’s contribution to Power Pack, which is a huge palette of matte lipsticks.

I am also wearing alaskametro<3’s  foil flash tattoos. The appliers have materials. This is the rare that has all the commons together in one applier. This was a gacha for the Spoonful of Sugar Event for Doctors without Borders, although, the event is now over.

Last but not least, I am wearing ISON’s Shoetopia item, the Charlotte heel, which themed HUDs to change various parts of the shoe. The meshwork is stunning as usual. Shoetopia has a bunch of great shoes just waiting for you to pick out!

Gone Glamping

I don’t camp at all. Something about bugs, dirt, and public toilets isn’t appealing. I am an urbanite that will make a large city park into my own forest.

https://gyazo.com/b578d71c55df723837bca9606455f8c1

The irony is I love the feel and the smells, just not the frustrating negatives. I really like when the forest is right on the coast. It just adds a lovely feeling to the world. The West of the Rain sim has a cute representation of a seaside island forest. Something about it just puts me at ease.

This is the second post for the Stuff My Inventory‘s Jewelry & Accessories Hunt. This time I am showing off Indulge Temptation‘s (Also known as IT!) Majestique Set. There is a beautiful stone pendant in both the earrings and the necklace. The gorgeous wire work changes to 10 different metal colors. And you get it for free!

I am also wearing my new Slink Bento Hands! If you already purchased hands from Slink, go to the mainstore, click on a redelivery computer, and have your hands redelivered, and you should have them when you open the box. The meshwork is well done, but I wish the default bones didn’t curl so dramatically. Plus they are animated to give some life to the fingers if you don’t have a bento AO.

Island Forest

The blouse is from COCO, a brand that has been around forever, and I remember going to their store during the stamp rallies, which were held back about 5 years ago, twice a year. You had to buy an item with the stamp sheet and then go to all the stores participating and have your sheet “stamped.” Then you turned in your sheets for prizes from the participating stores. It was an awesome event, that I wish creators would do again!

The jeans are from Addams, which have been a nice staple in my everyday SL wardrobe. The shoes are from Essenz, which are just the black pair of the ones I got from Monthly Midnight Madness, because I was loving the nude pair, but needed them in black too.

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.

https://gyazo.com/cb835a8a23305a842c41c85f8f843b79

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.

So I felt a little naughty when I tried on these pieces from Emery and had to go to Blithe to do some exploring.

https://gyazo.com/4cfc220f97271dd20310d945d21c2abc

The red top is the crop top from Collabor88 January and the rest were from the December round.

The pearls are from Yummy that I just adore and love to wear. The rest of the accessories were from Monthly Midnight Madness in December!
