If you’re out there…let me know?
I can’t wait for the holidays, right now I’m building the new shop and I had to make it SNOW!!
Come check things out, there’s a few items up in the shop, and more being added daily, but down on the ground level, I already have ice skating and snowball fights!!
There are two group subscribing kiosks, one is a link to the inworld group and one is to the subscriber. I will be sending out group gifts, it’s one of my favorite things to do. So, if you want to be included, be sure to click one of these boxes while you’re there.
I hope you are all well, and I am looking forward to a great season.
Yesterday I received a LM from my dear friend Ona that basically said “Knit boots-CUTE”.
Well now, you know me, and I know Ona who gives praise when it’s due, so I went over to check them out. They are adorable and come from LightStar. These boots come in a fat pack with four colors Black, Gray, White (cream) and a red that would have been so cute for Christmas, but I will happily store them away for next year. They are sweater material with the most adorable buttons. The designer has included a re-size script which in my opinion is a must for foot wear design. I wore my prims high on the boot because I like a long boot, but they look really cute scrunched down as well.
I’ve created an outfit to go with these boots. I was glad to be able to use some of my fave designers in this offering.
I’m wearing a “Just not that in to you” brown tee shirt from *DPS but had to put something underneath, so I snagged a bottom layer of my H6 top from !_Ce Cubic in a Tea Gray color.
My jeans are from Dutch Touch, and they are the dirty washed finished worn with no prims.
My jewelry is from Earthstones, but ‘woohoo’ for me and ‘boohoo’ for my readers, they were an exclusive color and no longer available (to the best of my knowledge). The design is Bali Crescent and the color is Onyx.
Today’s hair from Zero one of my old favorite styles called Yuuya
As always please to click over to my links page to find SLurls for all of my favorite shops.
Poses are from Reel Expressions using their stair poses, check that out, it’s very cute and versatile!
Ten years ago we were all sitting and waiting for the Y2K gloom, doom and end of the world that never happened.
Time flies I tell ya.
Today’s Look features some wintery items from Artilleri and Aoharu. Micholai and I bought these sweaters when they first came out and I’ve worn mine quite a bit so far. The sweater is called Marius and has several colors. I paired it with Nordic Leggings in Black from Aoharu. They just happened to match so well. Add a simple ruffled skirt from The Closet and tossed on my favorite boots from J’s in a brown to break up the monotone of my outfit.
My usual skin, Kate by League, and today’s hair is Eve from Maitreya in Pitch Black.
I have decided I’m going to start adding my poses to help some of my favorite pose makers get a nod here and there. SO, today’s are all from Diesel Works by Rogan Diesel.
ALL Slurls are available on my “Links” pages.
Have a wonderful day!!!
Ando Joubert’s Flickr…showing Harmony Vista at its finest.
My dearest friend Ando is happily creating his new residential sim. This exclusive living experience will be a great compliment to his already complete Symphony and Prelude Sims. Harmony Vista will be limited to four special residences, so come peek soon.
Contact Ando Joubert in world.
It is actually SNOWING in my back yard right now
I’ve been beating Monday blahs in Secondlife today by running around in a happy outfit!!!
Underneath is a simple tank by MichaMi, but you know its not REALLY simple, the detail on these make them a standby ‘go and grab item’ for so many of my outfits. They are available in great colors and this one is the gray.
I added my J’s Engineer boots and tossed on some ponytails by Truth (Esme in Treacle).
To glam up a bit and make myself smile I put on my pearl fan earrings from Earthstones. Have I told you yet how much I love these pieces? Oh yea, wait I did. Guess I really mean it.
Kate skin from League in Deep Tan Yin Yang.
I’m ready for if the snow hits while I’m busily building my props.
See you soon!!!
As always check my links page for SLURLS to these shops, if I mentioned it, its there!!!
Alright, got that outta my system!
It is also Step Up Day, Step Up is an organization that is helping to combat content theft in Second Life. Please, show your support. At the very bottom of this post I will give you more information!
For now, I’m back to supporting creators by showing off their goodies. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet several people in the SL fashion industry, and I also find myself in the company of outstanding fashion bloggers. What this has done for me, is increase the respect I have for them. This is one reason I am writing this simple little blog, I hope to send even one person to the doors of these creative folks who work so hard to ensure our virtual personalities never need to suffer in bad taste!!
Today’s Look was nudged on by my buddy Ona Ra. I love this flowy skirt from DP YUM YUM but really had no idea what I would pair with it. Impulse buy? Who me? NEVER!
I dug around and found a blouse by **en svale** its in a spring green, but in the store it is labeled as ‘berry’ due to the floral designs at the neckline. Don’t let that confuse you, but better yet just buy all of her blouses. I am sure I own half of the items in there, and her prices are always so reasonable.
Completing my outfit are baubles from Earthstones. (yes I do own other jewels but my chest of Abraxxas goodies never seems to be full). This necklace and earrings set is called Jharna Attraction. The deep chocolate browns make it a very versatile set for fall.
My hair this morning channels a bit of early 70′s Cher, it’s called Faye and is by Maitreya. Skin today is a different League skin called Misty in Deep Tan and Glam makeup.
We have enabled a new feature here, that allows you to ‘click to view larger’ on all of these photos. I hope you’ll find that useful.
Now, for more information from Step Ups organizers. Please feel free to contact one of them, or myself for an educational pack
(from the end of this sentence on, the text is taken directly from the Step Up Campaigns informational NC and not written by me)
Step UP! is a campaign centred on a special day of action that everyone can become involved with, and that can empower and inform people about the problem of content theft, and what they can do about it..
We are aiming for a day that draws together action, education and celebration. We want a focus that empowers people and allows them to express their own creatvity in a variety of ways. It also draws attention to the strength of feeling that there is here on the grid.
Step UP! Day will be November 5th – Guy Fawkes Day or Bonfire Night in the UK.
a) On this day – no-one uploads textures to the grid. This should show the economic power of people acting together, without harming content creators. We want Linden Lab to see the power of the feeling about the problem of content theft – and to discuss urgently strategies for tackling it.
b) As many people as possible wear an orange ribbon as a sign of support for creators.
The day ends with parties. Bonfire parties. That means that all around the grid, people have parties.
We’re encouraging every club to hold a Step Up! party. We encourage every musician to play Step UP! events. Everyone on the grid has a part to play. Everyone can take part.
1) Info notecards
You’ll find a notecard here in your pack:
All over the blogsphere, on inworld TV shows and radio stations, people will be talking about Step Up! and what it means.
On the Designing Worlds shows we’ve talked again and again about the need for a social shift – so that people see content theft as socially and morally unacceptable. So … let’s go for it!
The concept originates with a small group – Angie Mornington, Gabrielle Riel, Gwen Carillon and Saffia Widdershins. But more and more people are now becoming involved. And you can too:
Where I live the past few days have been perfect autumn days, but there’s a hint in the wind that we are in for a tough winter. This got me thinking that I should bundle up. So I did. That’s that!
Oh wait? You want to know what I’m wearing? Silly me, I forgot. I wrapped all up, got too warm and fell asleep in the treehouse at Cheshire Sim
Head To Toe:
TRUTH Mariane Hair in Sangria
Laqroki Tasha 02 in Nougat
Nighttime Gems Earrings and Necklace from Shiny Things (color changing pieces)
DP Serendipity Uniiiqlo Turtle knit Brown 2

Caution: be sure you have a pillow close by because this warm outfit begs for a long winter’s nap
