Field of Dreams

Field of Dreams

Whimsy has been building up areas for photos for us again, which of course meant I had to check how many prims were left on the sim and then make her pick up half of the things, I do not know how she survived before mesh. I love that she made a proper fence out of the adorable poseprop that RePose did for My Attic. It is so country and has a wonderful charm to it. Perfect prop for showing off these great pieces from both My Attic (closing tonight) and Collabor88 (only one week left).

Autumn is a great picture taking season, both in SL and RL, and for those that love Oranges and Yellows all year anyway, it is truly our bliss.

My Attic closes at the end of today for another round. We do not have a palette with our themes for My Attic, but often is the case that our creators just get their items so in sync with eachother, it is wonderful to combine creators and make perfect looks. Such was the case today, being able to combine the four releases from Mimikri, K-Code, Luxuria and Elysium just perfectly. Then adding a bag from David Heather and I was looking sharp.

The items from Mimikri are the beautiful billowy blouse, this actually comes in a Slink version, but I am wearing the Medium, as the high waisted skirt from K-Code Clips if wearing the more fitted version, so needed some room. Choices are wonderful. The amazing chunky vest from Mimikri is resizable, so that fits really and is a must have. The socks are by Luxuria and each hud has 4 colours in two texture styles. Then the adorable flats from Elysium, all of these are at My Attic, so hurry while they are all only 95L each.

Taking a pic in front of another of the Rowne items from this round of The Arcade, I think that it also closes today, but you will still be able to play at their store I expect, as is often the case after a round.

I needed a hairstyle that would not get in the way of all the parts of the jacket, and this Anise style by Wasabi Pills was just perfect, its bunches tails looks is so cute.

One of my favourite things about the updates to the Slink bodyparts, was actually something that happened in March. They went left and right feet, instead of an all in one set. This makes it a great option for those that roleplay as we have a lot of crazy kind of limbs missing scenarios that can occur there….my favourite reason though is more natural looking pictures. The pose included with this great daybed by Cheeky Pea is so perfect for this to be shown, my left foot is Flat, my right foot is Mid, the flat sits naturally on the daybed cushion and the extension of my mid foot is more believable because of it.

I got to lay around in my great gingham lingerie by Lacuna that is at this round of My Attic. You have system layers and appliers included and My Attic is only on for a few more days so get on it.

Sanura Snowpaw and Kassie friends of mine and yours!

You are going to have to do all the reading to find out about the cards 😛

Positivity

We have a friend, and I mean we, not I…because even if you have never met her, she would be your friend with open arms and an open heart with no hesitation. That is the nature of Sanura Snowpaw, my history with her goes back further than meeting her. I was processing some What’s New SL applications and came to the one titled ‘What’s New SL *Dreams* – Sanura Snowpaw‘ I opened it, and expected to find the usual fill in information for the application process.

Not this notecard though, this one explained who she was, and what she was about, it explained that her store was named after just that, the dream of owning one in Second Life, and all that would entail (pun pun punnnnn at the tail). I stood there in her store, and I could completely draw you it right now, without hesitation because it was just that memorable an experience…not the store, but her, that notecard, her Dreams. It was a glasshouse style structure, in the middle of nowhere. She had only a few items at the time, and wanted to get started. I adored her from that day onwards. Her store is no longer called Dreams, it has been Somnia for some years now, but that does not change her passion for it in any way.

She has been a light for so many people, her fluffy tailedness and her downright eagerness to just make people happy is what makes her someone you only want good things for. Unfortunately of late that has not been the case, and not a little thing her and there, but piles of stuff loading up on her. She is a rock, she is a damn Mountain actually for everyone that knows her, and it finally came to the proverbial straw. Her dog is hurting, and with everything else that has gone on with her and her family of late, it came time for her to reach out to her friends for a helping hand/paw.

Sanura is having a HUGE SALE in her store Somnia. 50% Off Everything and honestly if you have ever shopped at Somnia you know that means everything is insanely inexpensive at this reduction.

.: Somnia :. Help Kassie Sale

For some though, buying Lindens is not always a possibility, people Second Life in different ways, just like Sanura wears a tail and paws and ears, and I shop and talk a lot :). Often is the case, and I have found this many times over the years, people will ask to be able to donate outside of SL. They are able to give more that way, and also give anonymously, and it just seems more real to them, that they are helping her real life situation through RL means, makes perfect sense.

So Sanura has set up a GoFundme page, which whether 1 Dollar or more, you can help that adorable looking puppy get the help it needs. Also even if you cannot donate yourself, you can help spread the word, sometimes people are part of volunteer groups that have a few bucks stored in a jar for this exact thing.

Now I understand budgets, and often is the case that these things pop up at just the wrong time in your financial calendar, so I have done some shopping for you. It is not just about giving money, it is about supporting someone that deserves it, someone that has always jumped up and signed up for every other event to help others when she can.

So I have 10 Gift Cards in my inventory, that are valued at 1000L each, you can spend them on yourself, you can take a friend in need shopping with them, or give them to someone you meet that may be new or just not usually treat themselves for whatever reason. It is up to you…all you have to do is IM me in world on Sasy Scarborough and ask if I still have one for you (only one will be given per avatar), and all that I ask in return is that if you know of anyone that wants to benefit from a SALE that this one is on, or if you know of anyone that may want to donate that you let them know they can.

Tea Time

Tea Time

I took this photo days ago, it has been an overactive week. I showed my screen to Whimsy just before finally writing this up, and a resounding shreik of ‘THAT’S MY OUTFIT’ could be heard around the world. Sorry honey, took the pics days ago, you snooze you lose. She does this to me all the time, I want to blog an item, and she wears it for four days making some kind of territorial connection with it.

I can understand that though with this look, I am loving the combination of The Annex and Whippet & Buck. Both items are at this round of My Attic and how well they go together is just wonderful. The top is a joy, and it is standard sizing sizes, but fits me in my Slink body like a dream, even so with the alpha needed on the shoulders it just stops where it needs to…so much winning. The skirt is Whippet & Bucks first release in a very long time, and this skirt also comes with a Slink fitted option. It is a great skirt for the upcoming Fall weather for most of Second Life. I love the length as it makes it possible to show off the recently release Thigh High Boots by Slink. They had boots like this years ago, one of her first mesh items, but until now they only ever came in sizes that were a guesstimate of needs, as it was before Standard Sizing. This release is a Physique fit for the body, and all brand new textures and detailings have been added, they are stunners.

If you owned the previous versions, you can get them redelivered in the store, and they have the update to the Physique fit, but in the textures previously sold. Ashia was wearing these yesterday and they fit the Lara body by Maitreya really well too in her shape, so it is worth checking them to see if they work for you, if you have other bodies.

The skin  I am wearing is also a My Attic item, and from Lumae, so many appliers catering to many head and body and body part options, it is a definite MUST HAVE! item, and so beautiful with the red lips. Make sure you try it.

The beautiful furniture in my picture is a collection of bits and pieces added to the stunning set by Cheeky Pea at this round of The Fantasy Collective. The Burton set is a gorgeous mix of black and white prints, and adding a splash of colour like the orange cushion from Junk just makes it all the more funna.

Town & Country – City Life

Town

The theme for My Attic this round is Town & Country, which for us down this end of the world, when inspired by the UK influence, meant trips to the Manor and the higher end of weekend living. City for the weekdays and weekends spent brunching and high tea’ing all over the place…then of course the long walks with the corgi’s or hounds and what not, but it is great that with such a diverse group of creators, from all over the world, how people interpret themes. That is why we always try and have themes that can be spread out so thoroughly, and I love seeing the outcome, even when I have to wait a month to do so, it is exciting.

I went with the Town influence more in this post, but there are little influences of country, with the addition of the fantastic equestrian inspired jewelry by Cae. Love these items, the bracelet especially as it is just the right size, and has such a beautiful sentimental look to it. It makes me think that at some stage this was a gift from someone important. Like a graduation gift, or a memorable birthday, something that shows the giver knows the receiver better than most. I love that, and I hope you see that in it too.

The impressive dress by Nyu could do both Town & Country depending on your motivation. But in this case, I wanted to create a look that said ‘where is she going?’ or ‘where has she been?’ to a gallery, a dinner date, is she attending a function? all of these things are possible in this perfect ensemble. From the shoes by Bushu that have an impressive wedge heel style that allows for long wear, but definitely in keeping with a sophisticated look. to the wonderful umbrella from Tres Blah that is at this round of Collabor88. Their theme is Muted Coven and while there is darker edge to it all, this umbrella is glorious to have. I feel like one of those very fair skinned girls that just have their whole style together, and will use an umbrella/parasol during day or night to protect themselves from sun or rain, it doesn’t matter, it has become as much a part of them as wearing a watch or carrying a purse.

The hair definitely carries over into that too, this is by Lamb, also at C88 and her bangs styles are what made me fall in love with Lamb hair in the first place, and the two styles at this round brought all that rushing back.

This amazing background is part of Rowne’s release for The Arcade, it is amazing and looks just like a city street. Not only did I do a front shot though, but so that the window had some realism, I shot a backshot and used it on the glass, giving it a more authentic realism. If you can get your hands on the Rowne gacha items, definitely worth playing until you get your hands on everything. The bag is also from the release, and adorable and rich leathery goodness.

The skin I am wearing is by Glam Affair, it is also a Gacha item, part of the Shiny Shabby event that is currently running. I am wearing the 7 skin, which has such lovely full red lips and smokey cateye make up. I am using the no brow options as I have my own on. The poses used are by Ma Vie at My Attic, and named after the creator of Glam Affair Aida Ewing (Didi) so cute.

Rich Witch is Which

Rich Witch is Which
Slink has updated all their body parts. Updating to include a tinting hud, Omega compatibility as well as new skin tones and no nipples options which make me happy, because sometimes you just peek through a little bit on the side of things, so having that as an option is great.

The tinting hud also works on the tattoo and clothes layers, that is pretty neat, not one for generally tinting clothing as it can lose detail, but sometimes, a tiny addition of colour can help with being properly co-ordinated. Collabor88 has a very bewitching theme this round, and I am wearing this incredible two piece outfit by Spirit. The effect of both pieces is wonderful and I can see definitely mixing them with others in the future.

All that fringe gave me a chance to take my new shoes by N-Core for a whirl, with their strappy highness. I went to the Arcade the other day with Ashia, and was lucky enough to get the rare item I wanted by Nomad, this stunning iron daybed, so beautiful. That and about 5 candelabras, but one can never have enough of those in SL.

They work really well with these great pendant lights by The Loft, also at C88. The Rug and table are also part of The Loft’s release at the event. I really dig these great branches in the rusted old milk can by Cheeky Pea at The Fantasy Collective. I need more branches to just throw around the place, always fun

Fierce

Fierce

I noticed when going to add my picture today, I have been doing a lot of red/black looks lately. It really is a favourited combination, not just of me, but a lot of the grid, as they are often the best selling colours of many brands. I remember back in the early days of my SL, that you had to release, red, black , leather and lace, and then you got all the customers, because events at clubs were often themed around those colours and textural styles.

I am wearing the Ison Structural corset that now comes in fits for the Slink body and Maitreya body as well as standard sizing, much joy. It is part of this round of MIX and definitely worth running over to Ison to get…mind you when is it ever not the time to run over to Ison to get something.

I paired it up with the sheer knotted tee from Sn@tch that I grabbed the other day, this is an appliers tee, and the great thing about sheer plain items with appliers is that if you use the alpha mask options on the Slink body hud, you can make them non sheer, for different looks. That is why I bought them, because I can use them as solid shirts. In this case though, as my breasts were covered by the corset, I embraced the sheer.

These pants are also by Ison, and while they fit under the corset in this pose, you will get a bit of clipping with a more moving ao. Mind you we do so much standing around in SL that I am fine with that, as the pants were made a lot earlier than the corset was, and they are standard sizing…so depending on the size you wear, you could probably go a size down and not have that at all, me though I wear xxs perfectly, so no where to go from that :).

I pulled out an old favourite pair of shoes. These are the margot ballet flats from Slink. One of the first mesh flat shoes she made I think. They also come with an off and on option for the ballet slipper wrap around straps, so that you can wear them like this as a casual but elegant slip on. They are so pretty, and look wonderful with pants, and the colours of them are so pretty, especially in the lighter colours.

The fantasy collective items are from Cheeky Pea, and these are some beautiful pieces. The large mirror, that has that marvelous aged look to the glass, the lovely hanging lamps with candles ( I edited them larger) and the sumptious chair in the wicker that you just want to snuggle in with a good book. At the moment it is holding my bag from Rowne, that I think is so cute with its hanging open look. I might see if one of my puppies from the latest arcade will fit in that.

Fall Back

Fall Back//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

While I am about to “Spring Forward” the rest of you are about to “Fall Back”. I love Autumn, it is my favourite season, I was probably born in the wrong countryto really enjoy the beauty of it, I see such beautiful pictures of the U.S in that time of year, and it is marvelous. Lucky for me I have Second Life, and while it is warming up down here, I will get to enjoy all the upcoming Autumn fashions and my main love is BOOTS.

Every year I harass Onyx about boots, where are my boots, it is time for boots, BRING ON THE BOOTS! so rather than harass her this year, I decided to slip into some favourites, the Jazz boots, and warm my toes in preparation, sort of a gentle nudge into boot making mode ‘hint, hint’.

It is the perfect weather for layering, and having the pieces that mean if it gets too warm you are covered, or a slight chill, you are definitely sorted. This combination of an outfit I pieced together works in that regard. The stunner of a tight fitting tank dress by Blueberry, teamed up with some really high thigh high knitted socks from Izzie’s…not full leggings, so that you do not overheat. Then a lovely oversized cardigan from Lavian, that brings it all together.

The hair is a great off the face style by Mina hair allowing for attention to be brought to the COMING SOON skin by Glam Affair, it has been a treat of new appliers by Glam Affair this week, and this one is such a youthful and soft look, the lipsticks are charming, I love this aubergine colour, more of a matte finish, very nice.

The necklace is actually rigged mesh by Emo-tions, and there are different sizes and combos included, it is really lovely and I do enjoy when Mirja makes accessories. Standing on the verandah of a lovely garden cottage by Trompe Loeil that just makes you want to spend the days and nights snuggly and drinking cocoa if it is cold and lemonade when it is warmer..or probably iced tea, depending on where you are.

I hope where you are is making you happy 🙂
