Whimsy and I talk about Collective Conscious all the time, the fact that SL residents are such a wading pool of ideas and creative streaming…it is no wonder there is often an overlap.

Today I was taking all my pics of skins as the upcoming Vanity Universe annual skin fair is just around the corner, and I realised that I needed to locate the banners. Of course my note cards wouldn’t open so I went in search on Nadja Baxters flickr, and lo and behold there she was in her most recent post wearing the same lingerie I just shot for mine lol…funny part of this though is that it is not a new release, and I had been so behind in my posting that I hadn’t blogged it yet, so I actually did go in search of it in my inventory.

I personally never think it is an issue like some, one of my all round pet peeves is when I see a blogger say that an item has already been seen so they didn’t blog it, or something so crazy as that. Nadja has her readers, I have mine, regardless of feeds and what not, you should never deprive the designer of your take on an item, or the readers for that matter. I can see an item ten times and it can be the 11th that makes me go OMG wants. Feeds were and are only supposed to be tools to make it easier to navigate to the main source of a post, that is one of the main reasons I do a teaser up front, that and the fact that I think the less you put on a feed the lighter the load and memory needed for the feeds to function.

So back to the task at hand, the skin fair starts on Sunday at 3pm, that I am guessing is due to the time difference for Nadja and all of the other people responsible for the fair. It is nice to start later in the day though, it gives everyone that chance to build up momentum. You are going to need it too, there are so many incredible stores this year, and the sim is layed out in a three building stack, which hasn’t really varied from last years, so it will be easy for many to navigate.

One of the many stores about to take part is Tuli, and the breathtaking new release of Zoe will be at the fair, and for all you Tuli fans and future lovers, the skin is superb. There are so many options and variations in the skins packs, you have a bazillion eyebrow colours, and I might be exaggerating but she has gone so far as to include bleached and copper as options.

Zoe has an amazing face and body as usual, and there are other options created on the tattoo layers to enhance your overall look. Freckles, Cleavage, Lashes , Brows , and lipsticks, eyebrow shape and the actual shape that Tuli wears for the ad for the skins promotion, which is copy/mod so you can make changes as you need. This is a lot to play around with, and if you recieved her latest group gift of teeth and beauty spots and so on those can only make it all that more fun…apparently the teeth are still in the store for free.

In all the pics I am wearing Novel, a new style by Elikatira, so pretty are these victory curls that it is vintage love but in such a way as to have a modern twist. It has that half up and then lightly pulled back out of the face look Elika is so good at, make for easy showing of great make ups.

The chair and table I am showing in the pic are from the Chic Limited event Anti Valentine by Cheeky Pea, so comfy with a huge choice of poses. Cheeky Pea is not only named awesome but a great store to explore. But for these you will have to go to Chic Limiteds skybox.

Mark your calender for Sunday and prepare to skin shop like a crazy person….

Twee Twee Rockin Robin

MonBer

Yoga

Twee is such a cool word, it can be used for homewares or of course clothing. Usually it is more of an overall look, but in the Berries Inc case it is the name of one of their latest shirts, and so cute which of course makes it twee lol. I wanted to show how you could dressy it up for a day out and about, or wear it super casual for some soulful excercise.

I was out doing some  What’s New SL stuff – gosh I say that lots – and on entering Cheeky Pea saw their Gatcha, I am a Gatcha Addict it is true but I stood there and looked at the prizes and went ‘ please can I have a Yoga Matt ” and tadaaaa first try, then I tried again and said ‘ and one for Whimsy please ” this Gatcha machine likes manners and tada again…I was stoked. It has so many amazing yoga poses in it, and  with a click it rolls up and out of the way.

Today I  decided to feature it with the latest Mon Tissu Balcon Lounge pants, these are sculpted pants from top to bottom, and they are superb, I forgot to even check if there were visible issues with all the bending and as you can see, none. The pants also come in a Male version, so be sure to check out their gifting options in the store. Over on the left another new Mon Tissu item, the Loire Knit shrug is all prims and fit me easily with just a stretch, as it is a loosefit look it didn’t really need glitch as much as I first thought, and is great fun if you run out of layers because you wont use v2 you big babies.

A bit more Sn@tch when these The Office pants came out, I just had to get them, they also came with the belt, which is very handy and well made, I love a nice plaid cargo pant, and these are just that, and even though I am not a no copy kind of girl, I do think it works well in some cases because you can always share colours with alts or friends as sn@tch doesn’t sell seperate colours usually.

On my feet are the two latest flats styles from Elikatira, every time I think of Elika and footwear I remember the craziest blog post ever. It was actually her own ETD blog, where she released some beautiful flats, and the fans went mental, and not in the good way, seriously it was insane, they were practically standing vigile outside of her store lighting candles and rocking side to side chanting Hair hair Hair. Not just in comments in the blog post but chat groups too were all abuzz about how she wasn’t making hair anymore lol…which was NOT true, Elika like any designer in SL just wanted to take a break from hair, and manipulate some prims into anothe shape, and  had decided to create some shoes that she had in RL. The bit I found the most hilarious is that they weren’t even her first shoes, the so called number one fans had no clue she used to actually have a whole shoe department in her older store, and I still have my kitten heels bought in dec 2006 lol.

Anywho, these two styles are so cute, one is similar to the ones she had previously in ETD, and the others are flair, a style that resembles for me a bowling shoe look which is just adorable.
