A Moment Needed
There are days when just closing your eyes to the mayhem around you for five minutes can be enough. Being able to do so surrounded by, and adorned in beautiful items makes that five minutes a delight, a restart to your day, and a reminder of how it really can be the little pleasures that make all the difference.
One of my newest, and biggest pleasures is the TRANSFER ONLY option in the custom tab when sorting inventory. I made a little GIF of it, so you can see where it is located (In Firestorm Viewer) and of course you can put a search query in the space and voila you see all that you have of that type of item that is transfer only. This makes for sorting, and giving items away, or swapping/trading etc a breeze.
With all the Gacha purchases one can tend to make, or be given items when people have extras, they often end up lost amongst objects. This gives you a chance to search store name, then the transfer only part, and sort that stuff into a proper folder for it (which we all aim to do when we shop, but seriously who has time for those dramatic pauses when there is shopping to do).
I got to pull out some beautiful pieces, also of course searching by type of item is always fun, screens, ottomans etc. Incorporating older and newer items together, as that has always been my thing in blogging, that “Everything Old, is New to Someone”. With the speed in which events, new releases and so on occur in SL now, there is a time limit on how much people can spend chasing it all over the grid, so there are going to be items that people miss altogether.
This also gives me a chance to revisit pieces and give them another spin around my platform. It is why Whimsy and I have such shockingly high inventory counts, we don’t want to delete older, because older is not yuck, older is just older (depending on how old of course, I did delete an ottoman today that was made with torus’s and had poseballs linked to it for sitting SOOOOOOOOOOO OLD!).
I decided to take the gorgeous lingerie set by The Secret Store as my starting point, and everything just fell beautifully into place. The style of lingerie is vintage perfect, the colours are soft and romantic. I would love to see a second set (non event) with some more vivid colour options in contrast, as the red and blue version look amazing, but that just makes me want black and white, pink and yellow, red and black or white, and so on and so on, not greedy at all.
My hair is by Elikatira and the style also worked out perfectly, fit wise and just that little rock-a-billy edge to it, with the bangs style. It is at the current round of Hair-O-logy that is packed full of awesome hairstyles. Make sure you visit them and try everything in sight, male hair is available also.
My new little partner in crime is by Jian, I have purchased and blogged Jian pets in the past, and these Labradors are at the current The Arcade, and every play is just a bundle of awesome. I had rezzed him, but he is a wearable version, my new little companion puppy, so much the cute.
