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!

The Seasons Hunt ~ Summer 2011

Hello all!

Today I’m blogging about the always loved Seasons Hunt. This summer I feel as though the hunt was revamped and had many more high quality items than previously seen for this hunt, which is great! You can’t complain – amazing items for L$0!

I decided that the best way to do this was to create a few different outfits showcasing the various items available in this summer’s hunt. Enjoy!

SEASONS HUNT 02

Don’t you just adore this pose from Olive Juice? So cute and free, what’s better than that?!

I also am in love with this dress from (Elate!). It’s fancy enough without being too fancy for everyday wear, and it definitely spices up this gorgeous hair from Clawtooth! I don’t normally wear orange or red hair in SL, but I had to make an exception for this one! How adorable!

Have a happy Monday everyone, and stay tuned for more Seasons Hunt posts!
