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. :)

Discountlicious

Oh lookie, I’m doing another discounted fashion post! I’m not the richest gal around, so I do get the majority of my clothing from events (like 50L Friday) or special collaboration stores (such as The Dressing Room).

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you know I’m a huge boots with skirts girl. When it’s done right. Like any fashion trend, boots with skirts can go horribly wrong – trust me, I’ve seen it! It takes the right pair of boots and the support of some well-picked-out accessories in order for it to work. Check out my outfit below: do you like it?

I absolutely adore this dress from Tres Blah, it’s so simple yet classy. The boots I’m wearing are one of my favorite pairs, if not my absolute favorite pair of boots in Second Life. I love how you can wear these boots with a casual outfit, yet you can also dress them up with some attire toward the formal end of the spectrum.

Next, we have some of my new favorite pieces in my wardrobe. I’ve never been a huge outerwear-in-SL fan, but this jacket from Tee*fy has definitely changed my mind! I got it during 50L Friday a few weeks back, and boy am I glad I got it. It’s the perfect fall staple for any wardrobe. Next, the skirt. I don’t own any skirt quite like this one; it is very different from the norm, but I really like it!

I think the reason I was drawn to it was because it mixes neutrals but has that pop of yellow for some color, which is another one of my favorite trends – color pops! I’ll definitely be wearing this outfit a lot this fall.

Comment question(s) of the day: What is your favorite trend for fall? Where are your favorite discount places to shop ISL?

Style #49

A classy spin on old favorites.

Isn’t my daily hair color change fun?! It certainly spices things up and I’m loving the change! Basically, [elikatira] is my savior with their Essentials packs – blonde, brown, black, and red hairs all in one pack? Love!

I adore the outfit I’m showing you guys today. I’m incorporating an old looking shirt with some more sophisticated accessories, which is so fun. I enjoy making outfits with unexpected styles, and this grungy/high-class look is cute! I got this shirt from Tres Blah at the most recent 50L Friday, which, as you know, is one of my favorite weekly events in SL. And, of course, how could I not give credit to the beautiful Elly skin from Pink Fuel that I wear everyday – today I’m wearing the Pure version instead, and it’s perfect!

Style #47

One of my newest goodies.

I’m sure most of the SL fashion community has already purchased this sweatshirt and consider it old news, but I’m still in love with it!  I tried to copy the way it was worn in the ad as best as I could, simply because I adored it.  Love!

Also, recently {yesterday, actually} I purchased some land again.  I’m not sure what my plans are for it yet, but I love the quiet little sim of Nangrim and it’s nice that I finally have my own space to take pictures for blog posts and such.  :-)

Have a lovely week, hopefully I’ll be posting again soon!

Patterns, patterns, patterns!

Today, I bring you a mash-up post full of – you guessed it – patterns! Spring trends this year are bright, colorful, and have many patterns involved, so that’s what I’m showing you guys today!

The outfit on the left is very 70s inspired, which is another look that’s coming back as well {but let’s not get into that quite yet – another day!}. I simply adore this cute little shirt from Tres Blah for the Seasons Hunt: Spring! P.S., if you haven’t started that yet, start hunting! Many great items to find!

Next, the dress worn in the middle is sporting another popular spring trend – feathers! I think this piece has a lot of potential to be matched with a nice sweater, some leggings, whatever you want. Unfortunately, I didn’t have anything in my Inventory that went with it very well, so I just added some heels and let it be!

Finally, my favorite outfit/pattern of all – the outfit on the right! I don’t know why, but I just love something about this particular outfit. The shirt from Mon Tissu is so perfect and well-made and the rest of the outfit coordinates so nicely! :)

Have a fabulous week!

SEASONS HUNT 05

This sweater is one of my favorite things that I got from the Seasons Hunt. This color purple is truly a fall color and Tres Blah nailed the sculptie parts of the sweater, which for the purposes of this blog post I removed.

The belt I’m wearing from Ingenue adds the perfect touch to the sweater, and the khaki colored pumps from Maitreya tie in with the belt. A pair of bootcut jeans from fri.day completes this look!

Keep checking back until October 2 for more Seasons Hunt posts!
