From May2011

I eventually managed to make my way to Culture shock and of course there are many lovely things, but it is taking me forever, it won't rezz very fast for me, and I have a budget , and there is so many things worth buying.

One thing I really like is that I am seeing smaller shops I have not been too before I have a little notepad for my blogging stuff and right now I have at least 10 shops i have jotted down in my little book that I will go visit when I have time. I am also checking out stores, that I know about, but their style is not usually my style and being pleasantly surprised.

I loved this shade of pink, even though it says peach and the texture and detailing are great and best of all, I think this top was only 60L.. steal... skirt is from G*Field, not a shop I usually frequent, but I will be from now on, just to check.

Just on a side note, I expect you noticed that my posting has changed style a little, my photoshop is very angry with me, and decided to go on strike, so I have resorted to using Picasa, it is actually quite good fun, but lets hope I make it up with my No.1. Man Photo.S. really soon.

Pink 52 weeks of colour

From Suede Design Studio

I love this shade of pink, I think they call it ashes of roses, or blush, in rl H&M has tons of items in this colour for the summer, I wanted to buy it all and also in Second Life, I saw so many lovely things, I bought a lot of different things, went on a bit of a pink binge, at least in SL, I can spend more freely, grins.. thanks the gods for micro-purchases.

I am showing you today my favourite old jeans from Ibizarre mixed up with a beautiful crossover top ( Zaara ) and a sculpted jacket with a print I love from LeeZu. I am also wearing hair from Lelutka, I almost didn't buy it cause I don't like the name of it, but it's really pretty hair, So I bought it anyway.

Oh btw, the top comes with sculpted flowers, sorry I was too lazy to switch to viewer 2, so I could layer it all up, I just hate that thing. So just see the flowers in your minds eye.

Gulf of Lune - Windlight Study

Marshlands and Caribou

It has been a while since I went exploring around the grid and had some fun taking some scenic shots. I wandered around the Gulf of Lune and onto several of the sims that surround it, it is a continuous landscape and so it is easy to wander off the sim without realising.
I think the whole complex comprises of 5 sims in total.
Word of warning though, you cannot do anything on these sims, no rezzing and no flying.

I took 2 shots of the same view point,but using alternative windlight settings, to create atmosphere. So here are my pictures.

It is really beautiful, and well worth visiting, and there are danceballs dotted around the place as well as lots of photographic spots. Also there is a small parade of shops which have lots of interesting curios inside for your shopping pleasure.

Type in * Gulf of Lune* into your world map and be a tourist.

Dottie Dots

Black, White and a dash of Red

From Suede Design Studio

I really liked this group gift, which I actually saw on one of my friends inworld and asked them about it and then tp'ed off as quick as I could to go and grab one as well.

I like stripes with dots, I wonder if it is still a big fashion NoNo, or maybe anything goes these days, So I teamed up with my lovely soft chiffon dotty blouse a pair of striped capri pants from ADiva, ( sniffs, I liked Annejoy and all her designs) with a punchy red bag from Indy Designs a mini hunt gift from Christmas I think, but I am sure she has something similar in store and my super cute shoes from Nardcotix, I also added a Celtic style bracelet, well I am a Celt after all.

! Glitterati ! - Sneaker Passion Heels

From Suede Design Studio

I must admit, in real life I am a fan of sneakers, or trainers as we Brits call them, and I have seen them with heels in rl, but they just never looked right too me, I always stick to traditional flat sneakers, I dont even like those funky, Sketchers which are supposed to help you shapeup.

But I have had to eat my words with these brand new spiffy Sneaker heels from Glitterati, I have two pairs, black which I am previewing for you here and also a brown pair I will sneak into another post soon.

I took these photos in the Ibizzare store, I saw these two wonderful wooden birds and thought yep there is my background.

Grace from Purple Moon


From Suede Design Studio

This beautiful gown was dropped into my inventory a little while back and I took a series of photos for it, but I mislaid them and it has taken me a while to get around to doing another set, so sorry Purple Moon, cause this dress is the *da Bomb* and deserved to be blogged within seconds of receiving it.

From Suede Design Studio

The pink chiffon of the dress is so delicate that I didnt want to distract from it at all and so I just went for plain and simple and let this lovely gown speak for it's self. The only thing I added was this cute parasol which I already had in my inventory and I just fancied bring it out to air and a little pink flower in my hair.

From Suede Design Studio

I cheated a little bit with this group gift, it was actually a dress with a little flouncy skirt, not a style I would normally wear, but I loved the print and adore that yellow bow along the hip line, and decided to go casual with it and team it up with my favourite boyfriend jeans and some flats.

Dance from Barcelona to Paris

From Suede Design Studio

When I saw this gown, I really liked it, I love plain black and the deep red flowers are the perfect enhancement, I didn't really have a plan for a theme for the post, but on the drive to work today I heard Boy with a coin and remembered they had a great video with Spanish Dancers, I have tagged it onto the end of my post, so you can enjoy it too.

Vintage Tangerine - 52 weeks of Colour

From Suede Design Studio

I am so behind with the 52 weeks of colour, that I have all but given up, but sometimes the colour of the week reminds me of a great dress I have not worn in months, even years.

I decided to go all vintage with this post, all of the items pictured are at least 2 years old maybe more, but you know all of the items still look nice, of course advances have been made so that clothing moves better when you move, but even so, for a still shot, this dress in my mind still has what it takes.
