Before anyone says anything, yes, I refuse to take this hair off. End of story.

Moving on, I am having way too much fun playing around with shadows and depth of field. It really makes the photos so much more professional looking, and I don’t even have to edit my pictures for blog posts anymore!

I finally splurged on this amazing blazer from Mon Tissu – yeah, took me long enough. It goes perfectly with this cute, wintery dress from Tres Blah (only 88L at Collabor88) and the tights just pull it all together. :)

Say Hello to Change

I wasn’t kidding when I said I can enable shadows now! Aren’t they beautiful? I’ve always loved the ability to use shadows in SL, but my computer has never been able to support them without completely crashing. I can’t wait to use shadows for blogging and travel around SL for my blog posts, so look out for that in the near future. :)

Today I’m just wearing one of the new mesh items from Mon Tissu and an older pair of black jeans from there as well. I hope you and your family have a Merry Christmas if you’re celebrating today, look out for some new posts with shadows this week lovelies!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Wenge

As the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge draws to a close, I’ve had an ample amount of time to think about my blog and the future of my blogging in Second Life. I’m not the greatest of bloggers – I don’t have the most amazing picture quality, most creative outfits, or most expensive and best made clothes, but blogging has definitely taught me quite a lot… even if my contribution is but a speck on the radar. Blogging has taught me about Photoshop, websites, community, and so much more, and even if I’ll be disappearing from the Second Life fashion blogger community for a spell, I’ll always remember these valuable lessons. If/when I return, I hope to be able to contribute more to this blog and to Second Life in general. Now I am busy with RL, and whenever I do manage to make it on SL I’m spending all my time at the Hogwarts: Your Story RP. Throughout my long years on SL (previous to my creation of this account) I’ve learned that it’s impossible to be good at everything and you cannot stretch yourself too thin. My choices were either focus entirely on blogging or focus entirely on roleplay, and at this time I’ve chosen to spend my time in SL roleplaying.

Anyway, here’s my outfit for this week’s color: Wenge. I really do like this color, a nice and deep gray, perfect for fall. I especially adore this new cardigan from Vive9 – definitely a must-buy! I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Style #50

Finally got around to blogging a new Maitreya item!

Whenever I hear there’s a new item at Maitreya, I get so excited. Maitreya’s products are always high quality, well made, and drop-dead gorgeous. This boyfriend style shirt is no exception to Maitreya’s excellent legacy, but the only thing I wish was that the shirt was released in some patterns and a few other colors. That’s all! You could definitely wear this shirt as is, it certainly is long enough and the size is adjustable, but I’m trying to keep it PG here. ;-)

What else? I feel like I haven’t blogged in a while, and I miss you guys! As I mentioned a little while ago, I’ll be away on vacation next week so blogging obviously won’t be a priority, but I am going to try my best to throw up a quick 52 Weeks of Color Challenge post for that week!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Electric Blue

My slightly intergalactic-inspired outfit.

It seems crazy that 35 weeks of this challenge have already passed by, so let’s make the most out of the remaining 17! This week, I looked at the color swatch and immediately TPed to Emery {where else can I find all of my bright colors? ;-)}. I spotted this shirt, which is very different from my typical style but I loved it all the same. When I realized that I had a necklace and boots that coordinated perfectly with the remainder of the outfit, I was beyond excited! I picked these boots up on a whim at The Dressing Room a few weeks ago, and this SIGMA necklace I’ve had for ages now. And, of course, my outfit would not be complete without an adorable little hair from [elikatira]!

I hope you all have a lovely week, and I’ll see you guys back here for Week 36!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Pink

Hello everyone! Here’s my modest little contribution for this week’s color. I was trying to create a new spin on pink, since it’s so typically seen as a soft, girly color; this week I tried to create more of a edgier, cool look. :) Have a great weekend/week if I don’t blog this week!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Umber

I’ve been incredibly busy this week, so SL was pushed to the back burner. As I logged in last night, I knew that I had yet to find an outfit for my color challenge {which was a tad worrisome, seeing as I usually have my outfits done the day after the new color is posted!}. All I have to say is, thank goodness for Whippet & Buck!

This past week for 50L Friday, Whippet & Buck put out packs of clothes in the color umber for both males and females. I was so excited to see this, because otherwise I’d have no outfit for today!

I’d also like to spotlight the hair I’m wearing today, which is new from [elikatira]. Elikatira is my favorite place for hair and shoes – they’re just so adorable!

Have a great weekend!
