End of the Year Sales

There’re sales galore in SL right now if you just do a little searching! Select stores – Atomic, ploom, -paper.doll-, Illusory, Cheeky Pea, and Aura – are participating in a year end 50% off certain merchandise sale, so here’s a peek at my savings!

I own a good portion of Atomic clothing already, but I grabbed these jeans and adorable top for a combo of 125L. I added on the leather jacket and black ankle boots just for a more edgy feel to an otherwise very feminine outfit! x

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Khaki and Moss Green

I’ve done so many catch-up posts for the 52WoCC, but it’s never a drag to do a color combo post! It’s actually a lot of fun to try to incorporate two colors (that can be very different) and see what the final look is. I had the challenge of combining Khaki and Moss Green, which compliment each other very well!

It’s nice to finally be back around Second Life and blogging – I’ve had pneumonia for the past two weeks, which is why I’ve been so MIA. It’s crazy to think that we don’t have many weeks of this challenge left! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Brick Red

My interpretation of Brick Red.

When I saw the color swatch for Brick Red, I thought that it looked more like a deep pink than any shade of red. So, I decided to wear this beautiful pink top from The Whore Mansion (don’t you just love that name?), but, since it’s a little too skimpy for Alina, I put this lace shirt from Whippet & Buck underneath it. I’d also like to spotlight this gorgeous hair from [elikatira]. Though I’m wearing the version without the hat, I love both versions and just can’t get enough of this hair! Thanks Elikapeka for the new releases!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Firebrick & Bronze

I’m not dead, I promise!

Jeez, it’s been a while since I’ve done a blog post! Luckily enough for me, this week was quite easy, even though I had to play catch up and combine two weeks. Firebrick and Bronze go together so well and are perfect colors for fall {especially Firebrick – red is so in this fall!}. I especially love this bag from ISON, it is the absolute perfect shade for Bronze!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

The Platinum Hunt 2 & 1 Year of Blogging!

1 year already.

The other day I logged into SL and realized that Alina has been around for almost 2 years – and today was her 2nd Rez day celebration. Yup, that’s right: August 15th! Now before you get all confused and say “Alina today is August 16th…”  I am purposely posting this a day later in celebration of my first blog post, which was August 16th, 2010! Lots and lots of celebrations going on in Alina’s little SL. :)

Anyway, let’s get into the interesting stuff – the fashion. I went hunting today in The Platinum Hunt, which is always a joy. I only picked up a few things because I am currently experiencing SL poverty {a.k.a. hurry up Tuesday I need my 300L}, but I managed to create three very different looks with only 40L!

The style on the left is my favorite. It’s so glamorous and party-ready, I absolutely adore it! You can’t see it in this picture, but my hair is actually a super cute, punky ponytail from Exile that I surprisingly had yet to blog! This hair has become one of my go-to styles lately in SL. Next, the staple of this look: the dress. I’ve been really into paper.doll and all of their lovely dresses recently, and this one is no exception. It comes with options of a gold or silver top and was only 10L through the Platinum Hunt!

Now for the middle style. Once again, I’ve had this hair for quite a while now {hello Hair Fair days} but it hadn’t made an appearance in a post! I love it inworld, but I found it a tad difficult to photograph… ignore my lack of photoshop skills, haha. Anyway, this is more casual and hang-out friendly, but I love the pop of color that the shoes give and the slightly more put together look that the beautiful necklace from SIGMA gives. And, of course, the cute tank top from Atomic, one of my favorite stores on the grid. Very cute!

Finally, the third style. I’m not quite sure why, but I’m feeling a concert vibe from Alina in this outfit. Once again, the picture doesn’t show it but the hair is actually a sweet little messy bun, thanks Clawtooth! The mini dress is from Grixdale… PLEASE don’t close! I am so so so sad that Tyr has decided to close down shop, but look out for a Grixdale tribute that I’ll put up soon. <3 And last but not least, the pumps – another forgot-to-blog Inventory item! Vive9 created these sassy pumps for The Dressing Room a while back, and they go perfectly with the look!

All right, I’ll say goodbye now. Thank you for all of the support I have received over the last year, it truly means so much to me and I hope I’ll be blogging for many years to come!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Apricot

Showing off one of my all-time favorite skirts this week. <3

Lately I’ve really been getting back into simple, crisp outfits. I love to layer and accessorize, but sometimes you only need the simple things in order to make the biggest impact. I adore this skirt from Atomic, it makes me feel like a princess or a ballerina! Sorry Luna Jubilee, I totally copied the skirt from the Melon week; in my defense I almost wore it too which really would have been copying you! Of course, great minds think alike, and this skirt is simply perfect for Apricot. ;-)

Well, I think I’ll leave things at that. Enjoy your weekend folks!

The Dressing Room & My Second Wardrobe

Who doesn’t love some bargain shopping?

The Dressing Room and The Dressing Room Blue have been my main sources of affordable fashion for a long while now, and in my humble opinion many other “bargain shopping” places haven’t quite cut it for me – either that or I just keep forgetting to visit them. Today I was on Kaelyn Alecto‘s site when I saw her post on My Second Wardrobe, of which I had never heard. All I have to say is THANK YOU Kaelyn, I am in love with the dress I found there, pictured in the above left. And, of course, the left is my favorite look; I’m not sure why, but it feels unexpected and a tad edgy to me. It may be the boots, or maybe I’m simply crazy. Which one is your favorite look?
