I can feel the distance getting close...

You know how after you stare at something for a long time, it begins to look funny and not make sense? Well, that's what happened with this outfit - it doesn't make sense to me anymore. Separately, all the pieces are great (the textures on the shirt and scarf are absoutely lovely). Collectively, I'm not sure though. Hopefully it's just one of those tricks the brain plays on you. If not... well, I've certainly worn worse outfits.

I'm wearing:

Hair: Marai Style - Tori in cream
Skin: Celestial Studios - Deviant Nation Vogue, Vamp/Enchant
Eyes: Miriel - Strong Green
Eyelashes: Cake - Bedroom Lashes
Shirt: Veschi - Schwank Mint (part of outfit)
Pants: Last Call - Ingrid (part of outfit) (no longer available)
Shoes: Aphrodite Creations - Vintish Green Pastel
Bracelets: Armidi Gisaci - Metallic Tres Bangles in 14 carrot gold
Earrings: Junk - Oh Earrings
Brooch (worn in hair): G&S - Vintage Rainbow Butterfly Brooch

Outfit Wars #2

Now, for the long awaited second installment of...OUTFIT WARS, YEAH! WOOOO!

Fi's Outfit:
Four times (4x!!!). That is how many times Dolly asked for my advice when putting her outfit together for today's post. When I reminded her about the rule that we aren't allowed to talk to each other about our outfit war outfit, she claimed she "forgot about that." Hmmm.... Interesting, given that she is the one who created that rule (yes, like a tyrannical despot imposing oppressive laws that apply to everyone but herself). Very interesting, given that she waited a whole 10 minutes between her first plea for help and the second (obviously hoping that I'm as much a dimwit as she was pretending to be). And like any lazy and uninspired dictator who has the peasants do all the work and then takes credit for it, Dolly panicked when she realized she was on her own for this one. What else would explain that concoction she calls an outfit? I mean, as the "boss," why is she dressed like that kid from the neighborhood who all the other parents tell their kids to stay away from (affectionately referred to in my youth as "that hooligan down the street")? And, perhaps most importantly, is it just me or does Dolly bare a chilling resemblance to a love child of Marilyn Manson and Punky Brewster!?!?!?!?!?!

Hair: Marai Style - Rico in pearl
Skin: Celestial Studios - Deviant Nation Vogue, Vamp/Enchant
Eyes: Miriel - Dark Blue
Eyelashes: Cake - Bedroom Lashes
Tee: KBL - Little Bird T in white (only 5L!!!!)
Skirt: Red Buttafly - Happy Pretty Death Skirt
Shoes: Boing Frommage - MaryJane Flats (Patent-Urban)
Bracelet: Smitten - Gold Opal Dangle
Earrings: Untone Quilt - Drop Earring (free gift)

DG's Outfit:
Fionna took me to Red Buttafly, I had never been there before but she was sure I would love their skirts - and I did! What surprised me was that...Fio liked them, Fi has a great sense of style, she wouldn't be on the blog if she didn't but...her outfits, I have a feeling target a...more mature audience. We ended up picking out the same skirt as our favorite, another surprise, and I suggested that we use it for our next Outfit Wars outfit, not even thinking at the time that it may be a bit difficult for someone with a more um, sophisticated(?) sense of style. I quickly put my outfit together, a little dash of Suicide Girl, some Barbie here and there, it was pretty bitchin'. Meanwhile, Fionna's taking her time. Changes her mind a lot. Er...what the hell, the process is probably about as exciting as her outfit is...oops, did I just type that out? Sorry, typo, the keys are so close together, I meant to type: Fio's process was a little slow but WELL WORTH THE WAIT. :D Ummm, anyway...her outfit is *cute* reminds me of my grandma! Nothing wrong with thinkin' about your nana!

Skin: Frick Tan - Green/Pink Makeup
Hair: Deviant Kitties Rylee in Blonde/Black
Eyelashes: Cake Flutter Lashes

It's there where no one will stare...

Compared to most of the SL population, I'd say I dress rather conservatively. Unless I'm at the beach or engaged in a similar type of activity, I don't normally wear bikini tops as my shirt. That changed, however, when I saw this bikini top/jacket combination. Paired with a gypsy skirt, flat sandals, and a bouquet of flowers, it creates a summery hippy-ish look.
With slim fitting capris, bold-colored heeled sandals, and oversized sunglasses, it forms a more modern and trendy look. Despite the lack of coverage of the bikini and the sheerness of the jacket, the style (I love the flouncy sleeves on the jacket), muted earthtone colors, and textures of these pieces lend themselves to a variety of outfit options even for the more modest of us.

I'm wearing:

Hair: Marai Style - Rico in pearl
Skin: Celestial Studios - Deviant Nation Vogue, Vamp/Enchant
Eyes: Miriel - Dark Blue
Necklace: MM Luxe - Bamboo & Pearl Necklace
Earrings: MM Luxe - bamboo Hoop Earrings

Picture 1:
Top, jacket, & capris: DP Serendipity - Vacation in green and brown (whole outfit)
Shoes: Periquita - Beda Sandals in green
Sunglasses: +plus - Adorable Sunglasses in chocolate

I'm a bad friend and I forgot Fionna's rezday, so this is a surprise for her.

Everything, will be alright.

I got to meet Annah Whitfield of AnnaH Couture, and she was super nice, so I decided to use something from there in this post. This is such a simple, classic, mellow outfit, and that's good because lately things have been pretty hectic with the party and me going all rabid over the new Starlust.

Eyelashes: Cake Flutter Lashes

Little Miss Can't be Wrong

I'm not going to rant about SL and its plethora of problems lately, let alone the gazillion I encountered today. I'm sure you all have your own stories to grumble about. I spent the better half of today being a crabby, cantankerous Crankenstein. I even thought about borrowing a page from Dolly's guide to looking fashionably macabre just so I could whine some more and show everyone how miserable I was. In the end, however, I decided to go in a different direction. I opted for a more cheerful, "mod-chic" look, hoping it would rub off on my mood. It didn't. But I love this dress anyway.

I'm wearing:
Hair: ETD - Cora in chestnut
Skin: Last Call - Deviant Nation Vogue, Vamp/Enchant
Eyes: Miriel - Dark Blue

Dress & Gloves: DP Serendipity - Audrey in black
Shoes: ETD - Heel Strap Platforms in black
Necklace: Bonita's - Black Wrapped Bead Necklace
Earrings: Artilleri - Teardrop Earrings, simple (group gift)
Bag: +plus - Leather & Wood Tote in rose (Ravenwear hunt)

Some say we're all the same.

So, I hit up the sales this weekend. I got some great stuff from Thimbles and Decollage and played around with what I got until I came up with this. Then, when I was done and realized how much I adore the She Street Tank, I went to the Thimbles mainstore in Starlust and got another one in blue, but I'm pretty sure I'll end up with the whole collection...I've been wanting a new skin lately, and I think I'll hit up either <3 Cupcakes! again or maybe NO...

Anyway, not much to say today.

Welcome to the jungle...

When Dolly asked me to do a weekly post on her blog, I was flattered and jumped at the opportunity. Finally - I have a justification and ready excuse for shopping! As all my favorite stores flashed before my virtual eyes, my reasons for wanting to do this were clear. Less apparent, however, were her reasons for asking me; after all, I'm just a girl whose outfit she noticed when we both happened to be shopping at the same store. I don't claim to have anywhere near the fashion sense of all the SL fashion bloggers out there. But that is what is so great about Dolly - she is less interested in the latest zeitgeist of the fashion world and more interested in individual expression. "Just wear what you like," she told me, "don't worry about whether or not other people will like it." With that in mind, I put this outfit together for my first official DG post.

I know that this is the part of my post where I'm supposed to write interesting and clever things about my outfit and what inspired it, but I cannot help but think, "Does anyone really care?" I mean do you really care that I've been drawn to yellow lately because the weather has been Spring-like and that in RL there is no shade of yellow that looks even remotely good on me? I didn't think so. So if you ever notice that I'm rambling on about how my choice of bold accessories brought to life a white t-shirt and jeans or how I made a babydoll look more casual by adding jeans and flats (or anything else that is evident just by looking at the pic of my outfit), feel free to skip over that part. In fact, I encourage it. In the meantime, I'll try to find a way to use my voice here that doesn't make Dolly wonder what on earth she was thinking when she asked me to do this.

I'm wearing:
Hair: Tricolore - Ameria in Honey (group gift)
Skin: Last Call - Deviant Nation Vogue, Vamp/Enchant
Eyes: Miriel - Dark Blue
Eyelashes: Celestial Studios - Deviant

Shirt: E.M.A. - Cutsew in yellow
Shorts: Shop Seu - Short Pants in black
Shoes: Truth - Newtown Wedges (group gift)

Earrings: Spica - Old Key Earrings
Bracelet: Magpie - 3 Bangle Set Wood Red (from Red Stick hunt)
