Sally Has Seashells

Sally Has Seashells

I'm really in the mood for warmer weather to be here today with this recent design by Siss Boom! Sally Has Seashells is a cute minidress with sculpted features which include the skirt and the belt. The sculpted pieces include resize scripts which make it very easy to size the outfit to fit your avatar. A note that includes tips and suggestions for fitting sculpted pieces also comes with your purchase. Your purchase also includes the cute matching bag. The dress is available in three colors: blue, aqua and red.

The poses I used for this post are brand new by aDORKable Poses. I really love the poses by this designer because of her uniqueness and her inclusion of mirror poses. It can be extremely annoying to find the perfect pose for a picture but in the opposite direction of what you need it to be! You never have to worry about that with aDORKable poses because mirror poses are included in all of the packs! Photo 1 features a pose from the Bag Lady II pack available at the main store location, and Photo 2 features a pose from the Legs pack available at the Festival of Sin.

Black Angel - Group Gift

While you are at Siss Boom you should pick up this adorable group gift titled Black Angel which includes both the top and the jeans. If you aren't a member of the in world group, simply click the board in the store and join for free!

Week 9 of 52 Weeks of Color - Dandelion

This color screams Spring to me! I really cannot wait until I don't have to carry a blanket all over my house with me anymore; I really, really hate being cold all the time. I fondly remember playing with dandelions when I was a child; I loved to blow them in the wind and watch them fly away.

The dress I'm wearing is from coldLogic; I honestly cannot get enough of this store. I'm sure that I will eventually own everything that is released.  It's just too bad that I cannot have these designs in real life as well! I love how realistic the designs and the textures look. I do believe that this is my favorite new store on the grid!

Ok... I know I'm running a bit late with this one, but my real life has been so hectic lately. I'm sure that most everyone can understand where I'm coming from there. I actually took this picture a few days ago and am just now getting an opportunity to post it. Hopefully this coming week will be a bit slower!

Every ten days I blog the new collection at Designer Showcase for SeraphimSL. I always love the outfits by 1 Hundred. but had never really heard of the store before I started blogging the showcase. I had wondered what the name of the store meant and finally understood when I visited the other day. All the items at 1 Hundred. are ... you guessed it ... 100L. There are some very pretty designs offered by this creator, and the price is so reasonable especially if you are on a budget. It is definitely worth a visit!

Week 7 of 52 Weeks of Color - Folly

52WoCC - Folly

It has been such a busy, hectic week that I really haven't had time to shop for my Folly post. I was honestly getting ready to 'cheat' and tint a modifiable shirt and put a mesh jacket from JANE over it when I saw this cute little dress at the JANE shop. I know that it isn't quite the correct shade of pink, but to be honest, I'm not sure that any of my photos have been correct! I think that is a common problem with this challenge, however.

I finally grabbed my first mesh hair with the latest new release from Elikatira. I always love her hairstyles anyway but being mesh just makes it all the better! It was so much easier to pose with a hair that moves with me opposed to one that I have to modify to fit the pose. I will most definitely be looking to add more mesh hair to my already bursting inventory.

Back to Black

0 comments
CHIC Management is returning to its roots this weekend with the Back to Black event. The organization began in 2010 with the Black and Blue Fair to raise awareness of mental health issues. The new event will also be designed to raise mental health awareness; items have been designed around words of encouragement including strength, serenity, fighter, heart, spirit, friendship, home, comfort, life, hope, courage, determination, survival, family and endurance. The doors open this Saturday, February 11th; so, be on the lookout for the landmark!

Back to Black

The cute outfit I am wearing is one of the designs that will be available at Back to Black by Izzie's. The Serenity Leisure Outfit has a very comfortable feel to it; I would actually love to have an outfit like it in real life. The prim pieces blend perfectly with the system layers just as you will find in other Izzie's creations. There is also a bottom prim to the shirt that features a peace sign. Unfortunately, it didn't fit well with my pose, but it does, on the other hand, work very well with an AO! So, no worries there! I am wearing the brown and beige combination; the outfit will also be available in grey/white and black/grey.

Speaking of the pose, it is also an item that will be featured at Back to Black by EMBODY. The At Peace Pose is a couple/individual poseball. If you are posing only one person as I did, turning off the other ball is very simple; simply type /1 hide in local chat and the ball disappears! You have both copy and modify privileges with the poseball which makes individualizing it very easy. Although I do believe this is a type of yoga pose, I also see a praise pose when I look at it. My husband and I may be going through some financial hardships in the very near future, and whenever I look at my picture I just keep thinking about lifting my hands in praise to God who I know will take care of our every need. Whatever the pose may mean to you, it is very well crafted and will be an excellent addition to any pose collector's inventory.

I don't typically blog furniture, but I have been wanting to get into setting up my own photo scenes instead of relying on those already made. I spotted the Esme Living Room by FD Decor, also available at Back to Black, and thought that it would match perfectly with the color scheme of the photo. The furniture features multiple poses, texture change chairs and vases, lighting with on/off options and a cute fountain that includes sounds. There will also be a black version of the suite available at the event.

Week 6 of 52 Weeks of Color - Alice Blue

52WoCC - Alice Blue

I really love how soft the color is for this week's edition of Luna's Color Challenge. It is definitely a color I can see myself wearing more often; so, I was not sad at all to add it to my inventory. I was really glad to find an outfit at a new store that I was really looking forward to shopping at. coldLogic is a collaborative effort between Janie Marlowe, Zyrra Falcone and Damien Fate which focuses on my latest obsession... mesh! I know you are probably getting tired of me talking about how fabulous mesh clothing is, but I really love the movement of the pieces and cannot see myself purchasing a lot of non-mesh clothing in the future excluding undershirts and the such of course.
