Sassy and Classy

I bought this dress yesterday from Category 5 for only 25L....what a deal!!! I think I might have to go back and buy looked like just about everything was on sale for 25L. And it's just so darn pretty.I feel like I could be going to an interview at some high class fashion magazine in this look. Very chic.This skin is a yummy one from Rockberry which I think looks great with these eyelashes I got from On the Catwalk back in the day. The hair is a fave from Hair [OH] that I have been rocking in a few blog posts today because I don't want to take it off, haha.
The shoes are from Kookie and were a cheapie at 50L at one point, last time I was there they still were, but not sure if they are still there now.Dress: Category 5

Fly Away

I sat at home feeling like my wings were clipped.

I played and paced and longed for more.

I set myself free and flew into the beautiful void.

May I free you too?

Feeling Fae

Been really lazy with posting lately. I really like this next look though so I guess it was worth the wait. Anyway, I am doing a fairy type post, but seeing as I am not really the floofy, floaty type of person, the look ended up more "fallen angel" than "floating fae."

I took all of these pictures on the Forest Feast sim. I don't take a lot of location shots because frankly my computer can't handle them. I highly suggest anyone reading this go there though and look around at how beautiful it is, don't trust my lackluster background photos because the real place is amazing!!

I am massively in love with this skin from Cupcakes. It is one of the 250L Halloween makeups from the new Daydream line. The parts on Enchanted that were too harsh have been softened on this line, and the parts that were too soft have been sharpened. It's fabulous, I highly recommend picking up one, or two, or a bunch. It should also be mentioned that my computer can't see a lot of local lighting or glow, so some of the plants in the background, as well as the floral wreath I am wearing, have parts or particles that glow that you just can't see here.

It's for a good cause

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and that means *grumblegrumblegrumble* pink is everywhere on the grid in support of breast cancer research and elimination. It seems people are well-aware of my intense hatred of the color pink, but few know that cancer is something that hits close to home. It runs rampant in my family on both sides (I've lost several family members to different types of cancer), and one of my best friends is a breast cancer survivor.

So here I go. I will wear everything in my inventory that's pink AND provide photographic proof... because I absolutely support the quest for a cure. (If nothing else, please scroll to the bottom to read about the poses.)

Peace, love, and feel your ta-tas.

Love Thursdays

I have no real clue what a "Love Thursday" is but Isabeau told me a bit about it and I figured I could show some stuff I love this week. I was talking to a pal about our love for system skirts, so I figured I would wear one today! I know a lot of people are so not into the system skirt but I feel it is misunderstood. It is really the only way you can get a sleek skirt look without going the way of the crotch flap. I think A-Bomb does a lot of great system skirt dresses, like the one worn below:

So cute! The dress and shoes are a new release too!. A-Bomb is great for retro and subculutre-embracing styles so you need to check them out now. The shoes are color change, BTW. YAY! I also really love this hair from Vanity Hair. Every time there is a new release she outs a version of it out for 1L in an exclusvie color. Can you beat that? Heck no. I got this style in the exclusive dollarbie color when it came out and had to go back and get the black pack later. it's just too fun. The pocket watch necklace is from another fave of mine, DM Designs. There is something super fun about pocket watches and having it as a necklace is even better. YAY Again!

I also wanted to show another love of mine via face shot close-up. One thing I love is unusual and unique skins. When people think of "unusual" they often think of outrageously off the wall skins with florescent makeups and such; I, on the other hand, think of places like Skin Within who do skins that are made to represent real life looks in such a way that they became against the norm. We all know not everyone has a teeny, tiny slope nose and perfect cat-shaped eyes in real life. Skin Within embraces that and makes skins to fit all ethnicities and races. I am wearing my normal shape with the Amelie skin but when you purchase the skin a different shape is included. These skins are really unique and great for role play or everyday wear.
Dress and Shoes: A-Bomb
Skin: Skin Within
Jewelry: DM Designs

Hair (pic 3): Lamb

Note on system skirts:
To make your butt not look gigantic in a system skirt, all you have to do is lower the size of your butt and saddle bags by a few points until you get the level of "flatness" you want. Your shape should either be modifiable or should have included a system skirt shape when you bought it. If your shape is no mod and you don't have a skirt shape I would suggest contacting the creator of the shape to make you a skirt version!
