Pieces of My Closet IV

Pieces IV

While sorting through my inventory last night, I came across a few older dresses that will more than likely never be worn again, but I couldn't bring myself to delete them... especially the dresses that were from stores that no longer exist!  My lovely Plurk friends suggested that I should box them which of course makes perfect sense.  I always hated the idea of packing and unpacking inventory, but if it is something that I won't use a lot, it is definitely more logical to pack it.  I remembered an inventory 'closet' by Tiny Spaces that I have which is extremely easy to use; unfortunately, the owner no longer has an in-world store, and I cannot find the item on her marketplace.  There are, however, a lot of inventory organizers on the marketplace for you to choose from to help you clean up your item count.

I have technically already blogged the dress I am wearing from Scribble, but it was ages ago before I even knew how to take a high-rez photo.  That's a scary thought.  The design was an exclusive from the designer for an event called it was a blur.  At the time, it was definitely the most unique environment I had ever emerged my ava in.  Since Scribble has disappeared from the grid, the thought of deleting this really bothered me especially since I like it.  However, it is now tucked safely in a box where I can pull it out when and if the occasion calls.

Never My Love

Never My Love

I had such difficulty with this photo that I almost scrapped it.  If you look in the background, you will notice that the windows on the house are not quite right.  They have a weird twisted shape and no matter what setting I tried to tweak, I could not get them to look normal without getting closer to the house.  Instead of deleting the photo and looking for a different location, I decided to use it anyway and see if any of the many talented photographers could help me with my little problem.  Any suggestions are appreciated!

There are so many new (and beautiful) items in the outfit I'm sharing.  JANE recently released two new mesh dresses, and honestly, who doesn't get excited about this?  One of the dresses is a strapless design (photoed above) and the other features a 50s style strap.  Twelve total patterns are available between the two dresses.  Five standard sizes, an alpha layer and a shadow layer are included with your purchase, and you are able to demo all mesh items at JANE absolutely free.  I first discovered JANE during a sale almost two years ago; of course, mesh was not in the picture then, but I fell in love with her designs and the love just keeps growing.  While you are at JANE, check out the clearance sale in the back room.  All nonstandard sized mesh has been reduced by 50% and will be retired when the sale ends.

Wasabi Pills has two new hair styles out for Fairy Tales in 2012 and both are absolutely stunning.  Mesh hair has been very touch and go with me.  I've always loved TRUTH hair, but for some reason his mesh designs have a crinkled texture on me.  I've never had that problem with Wasabi Pills, and as a photographer I love the fact that the 'alpha' portions do not disappear when I turn on shadows.  It can really be a pain to take multiple pictures to be able to put those pieces back in.  If Fairy Tales in 2012 is still a little too crowded for things to rez properly for you, demos of the two hair styles can be found at Wasabi Pills' main store.

I'm not sure if I have ever tried a Belleza skin before, but either way I am in love now!  Evil Queen is one of two new skins also featured at Fairy Tales in 2012.  I know everyone always talks about the body of a skin, and while the body is very important, the face is honestly my favorite feature and Belleza's couldn't get much prettier.  The lips on Evil Queen are to die for (no pun intended) and the brows are so pronounced and striking.  For you body lovers, highlighting and shading can be found throughout the skin which gives it more realistic look.

Last, but certainly not least, are the adorable new mesh shoes I am wearing from Izzie's.  I don't think my inventory will ever have enough flats!  I probably love these so much in world because I love them so much in my real life.  My job requires me to be on my feet the majority of the day, and I don't think my body could handle heels all day.  The shoes feature a cute flower on top.  Thirteen two-toned options are available as well as two solid options.  A free demo is available for your convenience.

Pieces of My Closet III


Last summer I started a personal blogger challenge that was intended to motivate me to clean my inventory.  Needless-to-say, it didn't work very well.  My inventory is a complete mess, and I have no idea what I even have anymore.  Last night, I was motivated to finally start sorting through the massive amount of items I have (78,905) and came across this adorable little outfit that I didn't even know was there.  I haven't been able to locate the top at DCNY, but the bottoms are still available (except not in the color I am wearing... perhaps they were a limited edition?)!  Five colors are available and include full length jeans and capris with five different cuff styles.  A very versatile product at a very reasonable price (150L each).

Although you cannot really even see the shoes I'm wearing in my photo, I wanted to mention them anyway because they are so adorable.  I found them at The Fashion Garret (what ever happened to that event?) by an adorable little store titled tulip.  The style is a flats design that is, of course, not available in store in the color I'm wearing, but five other colors are available at only 90L per pair.

The skin I'm wearing is the June group gift from Filthy Skins.  If you were lucky enough to get in free a few weeks ago, you should have already picked this up!  If you weren't that lucky, don't worry... the group fee isn't that expensive at a one time payment of 199L.  For twelve free skins (twenty-four if you include both genders) per year, that isn't bad at all!  And, you also get a modifiable shape with the gift!  You have just about a week to pick up the June gift before it disappears for the July gift.

ZombiePopcorn Carnival


The ZombiePopcorn Carnival started a little over a week ago, but I have been so busy with Seraphim that I haven't really had time to post any of the goodness for you here.  The adorable outfit I'm wearing is new from Izzie's and an exclusive for the carnival.  The pattern on the leggings is really out there, but I have to admit that I love the craziness of them!  Izzie's is one of the only brands in Second Life that I will still wear sculpted pieces from.  Mesh has totally spoiled me when it comes to movement, but the reason I fell in love with Izzie's designs in the first place was because of how well her sculpted clothing moved with my ava!  Both the pants and the top are offered in twelve colors and will be at the event through June 30th.

The skin I am wearing is also new from Izzie's.  Estella is offered in nine skin tones and includes dark brows, light brows, red brows, blonde brows, optional cleavage, optional freckles on tattoo layer, a brow shape, a modifiable body shape, a nail base, twelve eyeshadows and twelve lipsticks.  (Ebony, cocoa and mocha skin tones include only one brow color.)  You get so much product for your Lindens with Izzie's skins!  If you have never tried one, I highly recommend stopping by her shop and trying a free demo.

Liquid Light


I'm not sure that I have ever done a post exclusively for eyes, but, as my mother always likes to say, there is a first time for everything!  Mayfly's new colors for their Liquid Light Mesh Eyes collection are stunning to say the least.  The eyes are resizable by script with two options for pupil size.  The eyes also contain options for full bright/glow or off bright/glow.  Your purchase includes four versions according to the level of white.  System layer eyes are also available and are located in the main vendor with the picture of the product; if you wish to purchase the mesh eyes, please use the small vendor located under the main one.

I love mix and match clothing; if all you ever have is pre-made, already put together outfits, life can get a bit boring.  Eclectic Apparel recently released a Mix 'n Match line with pieces that could truly go with just about anything.  The Darla Blazer and Pants do have a dress feel to them, but you could easily pair the blazer with a stunning pair of jeans and get a more casual look.  The Bronte Top is the perfect undershirt; it's both delicate and feminine.  The top also is able to hold its own as a stand alone piece if you want to lose the blazer.  The Darla Blazer and Pants are available in fifteen colors each, and the Bronte Top is available in sixteen colors.  Five sizes and an alpha layer are included with each purchase, and a free demo is available for you to preview the items.


Eclectic Apparel's contribution for CHIC2 is a little more casual and a lot more sexy!  The Cheer outfit is a design that, like the name suggests, is designed after athletic outfits.  The outfit is available in nine versions of white and nine versions of black.  As with all other Eclectic Apparel mesh, five sizes and an alpha layer is included in the purchase, and a free demo is available for you to preview the outfit.

I love fashion with flair, and PurpleMoon's contribution for CHIC Management's 2nd birthday bash has just that!  The Chica Top and Trousers have a very 70s vibe to them.  The texturing on the trousers gives them an almost touchable quality; they have a very soft feel that makes me wonder exactly what kind of material Poulet was aiming for.  If it was velvet, I'm glad my ava is wearing it and not the real life me... especially in this weather!  Both the top and pants are mesh items; five sizes are included for both as well as multiple alpha layers.  The top is available in six colors and the trousers are available in eight colors.  A free demo is available for you to preview.  The event closes June 24th.

coldLogic Rompers

Designs like dresses and rompers are something I have never found easy to wear in my real life.  My real body is shaped like a pear which makes wearing one piece outfits extremely difficult.  To get an outfit the fits in the hinny, it always doesn't fit in the bust.  Such is life!  Thankfully, my Second Life body doesn't have such limitations and allows me to thoroughly enjoy these new rompers by coldLogic.

coldLogic Romper

Mathis is the most dressy of the three romper designs.  This is definitely a look that would be appropriate to wear to an important business meeting or out on a date with that special someone.  Four total colors are available for the Mathis design.  Rae is a romper design identical to Mathis; however, it is offered in four bi-colors instead of four solid colors.  This setup is similar to how JANE renames same designs that use different textures, and using that system at coldLogic makes complete sense since Janie Marlow is one of the three very talented designers of coldLogic.  Five sizes and an alpha layer are included with each purchase, and a free demo is available for you to preview.

coldLogic Romper

I'm not typically into the sporty look, but I have to admit that Room is a very sexy sporty look that I really love.  The 'shorts' portion of the romper are extremely cute; they remind me of running shorts and even have that crinkled up look to match.  Room is available in four solid colors, and like Mathis, Room has a 'sister product' titled Briggs that is available in four striped colors.  Five sizes and an alpha layer are included with each purchase, and a free demo is available for you to preview.

coldLogic Romper

Reese is the final romper style available and is the most dressy casual of the three.  This design is perfect for shopping with your girls or a night out at the movies with your friends.  The top portion of Reese features a floral design, and four total colors of the romper are available.  Ella is a similar design to Reese with the exception that Ella has a more solid texture with a highlight color around the top and bottom of the romper; four colors are also available for Ella.  Five sizes and an alpha layer are included with each purchase, and a free demo is available for you to preview.

52WoCC - Pueblo

52WoCC - Pueblo

I'm still so far behind on my 52 Weeks of Color posts, but I promise that I will get caught up!  Week Nineteen's color 'pueblo' was really difficult for me.  It is a color that reminds me of rust, but a very orange rust.  I honestly don't think that I captured true pueblo in my picture, but I really love the dress... That counts for something.  Right?

The dress I chose is a newish design from JANE titled Jenelle.  The dress is available in three color combinations as well as a different texture in three different colors under another name, Sparrow.  As with all JANE mesh designs, a free demo is available for you to try before your purchase, and each item contains five sizes and an alpha layer.

Sophisticated Mix


Siss Boom is back from a brief hiatus and marked the occasion with a new release!  The Sophistication Mix top is a mesh design with four texture choices available; five sizes and an alpha layer are included in your purchase, and a free demo is available for you to try.  Of the four available versions, the Glam texture was my favorite.  It has a very dressy casual feel, and of course that is always the design I'm looking for.

I have technically already blogged the amazing new mesh jeans from JANE, but I honestly cannot get enough of them.  The textures on all five available colors are beautiful, and the low waist line makes them very easy to fit underneath mesh tops without having the pants poke through the shirt.  Sweet 'n Low can very easily be a staple of any female inventory... and not to mention the butt looks amazing!

What's better than getting an adorable new outfit?  Getting it for free of course!  A couple weeks ago I blogged an adorable mesh skirt that I paired with an even more adorable mesh jacket from Eclectic Apparel.  The store is now participating in the Mesh Around Hunt, and the prize for finding the hunt item (a blue M) is the Carolina Blazer in an exclusive plum color for the hunt.  Five sizes and an alpha layer are included in the product, and if you aren't sure if you will like it on you... you can always try the free demo for the twelve other colors the jacket is available in!  The hunt item is absolutely free.  Happy hunting!

Don't like hunting but love slapping boards?  SAKIDE has these adorable mesh pants up on the store's Midnight Mania board.  At the present moment (1:30 pm SLT) there are 58 people registered with a 150 target.  An incredible seven sizes and an alpha layer are included in the prize along with a system layer top that was a bit too low for my personal preference.  Grab a few friends and go hit the Midnight Mania.  There is still plenty of time to get 150 people before midnight!

The skin I am wearing is new from Al Vulo.  The 2nd birthday party for CHIC Management opens today at 4 pm SLT, and the Baba2 skin is the exclusive item from Al Vulo.  The skin is available in seven skin tone packs that include three makeup options, cleavage/no cleavage options, hairbase/no hairbase options, modify lashes and a no modify shape.  The skin is not a freebie, but it definitely well worth the price!

CHIC Management will be turning two this month and has decided to celebrate with a shopping event featuring 150 Second Life designers.  Really... is there a much better way to celebrate?  One designer who will be featured at the 'party' is coldLogic.  Moody is an event exclusive and will only be available at CHIC2 for the duration of the event; afterwards, you will be able to pick it up at coldLogic.  The adorable summer dress is available in three textures and comes in standard sizing.  I really love how fun and girly this design is; it is a piece you can dress up or dress down to something more casual.  A perfect piece for my inventory.  The event opens June 3 at 4 pm SLT.  Mark your calendars!
