Surface Envy

The SL12B is creeping up and keeping me busy so I am throwing this blog entry out there and hoping you like it as much as I do.  This time I put together a more eclectic look, starting with the capris from Ariadna Garrigus that she just issued, which include a great texture change HUD to swap up pants and belt textures. I topped it with this provocative piece from Lalu Bonetto, which is part of an outfit she will be selling exclusively at Shiny Shabby (opens June 20). Glamistry just came out with these platform-platform Mary Janes with a fish hook heel for Kustom9. (Last time I saw a good hook in SL was with Eshi!)

The spark to this whole look is Chiaki Xue’s newest hair for boys or girls, a tossed aside, chic cut that hides the eyes, but not the style. Inka Mexicola is coming out with a  new skin, which I am showing only a small piece of this time because I used bright lips from Constance Daehlie. And AvaGardner Kungler comes on heavy metal with these great earrings for On9.

A casual look is what is needed this spring—something good for the change in seasons. I always loved girls who could wear their hair down and casually pull on a pair of jeans and look all put together. This wrap top from Lalu Bonetto is ideal for a casual look like this with its pretty retro floral print. Skinny jeans from Onyx LeShelle also make this look—chic and casual with a snug sexy fit. Nardya Rousselot’s sandals with their cute little toes makes this look complete.

Sachi Vixen has been making more new skins. This fresh lovely look is a new one from her with eyeshadows and lipsticks as she always provides. I opted for a fresh springy eyeshadow. My hair is from Helyanwe Vindaloo, who gives tossed locks a fresh update with this full style and bobby pins.

Inspired by “The Impotence of Proofreading” by Taylor Mali. (Watch BEFORE reading.)

The The Impotence of Proofreading

When disgusting fascism, it’s impotence always to disgust the the prims. Consider the ship and dolor, the artist’s contempt, the amount of blow. For example, in this outrage from Lalu Bonetto, we see a cut paisley dross with a shot skirt that executed cleverly. The socks from Apatia Hammerer have a spurt of alternator hedge that matches the dross. My cut cowboy butts from Emma Gilmour puncture this prefect outrage.

My shin is from milok Hermit, who offs a selection of flesh and lowly skins with a unique book. My chair is by chiaki Xue, who has been trilling me with her bork lately. I lope how the chair churls around my nack and oars.

(I have to tell you it was hard to write like this.)

The translation is as follows: “When discussing fashion, it’s important always to discuss the prims. Consider the shape and color, the artist’s intent, the amount of glow. For example, in this outfit from Lalu Bonetto, we see a cute paisley dress with a short skirt that is executed cleverly. The socks from Apatia Hammerer have a sort of alternative edge that matches the dress. My cute cowboy boots from Emma Gilmour punctuate this perfect outfit.

“My skin is from milok Hermit, who offers a selection of fresh and lovely skins with a unique look. My hair is from chiaki Xue, who has been thrilling me with her work lately. I love how the hair curls around my neck and ears.”

Darlin’ Do Not Fear

‘Cause it won’t last – your worries will pass
All your troubles they don’t stand a chance
And sometimes it takes more than a lifetime to know
Darlin’ do not fear what you don’t really know

Darlin Do Not Fear

I guess I write a lot about taking it down a notch, being happy, not worrying so much. It’s a mantra I repeat in my own head a lot. I found out if you make it so, it’s so. What I mean is that if you decide not to let fear and panic rule your life, amazingly there isn’t so much to fear or fret or complain about. As the lyrics say, “Do not fear what you don’t really know.”

I took this attitude out shopping on the grid lately.  I put together this easy-going sporty outfit as I was out and about—it’s a great representation of the idea of being happy and a little fearless. First the great suede *faux* fur coat I wear, which is a sort of laid back, cares to the world bohemian, made by Violace Huntress. It’s well made with a great textures, though the fur is full bright. My pants are from designer Lalu Bonetto, who has some funky and fabulous clothing in her store. Love the shadows on these. A sexy little t-shirt with peek-a-boo lace from AvaGardner Kungler, and I am set.

Darlin Do Not Fear

My gorgeous winsome skin is from Tuli Asturias, who recently reopened her sim and is offering a whole new set of skins plus redone skins with numerous layers. This skin I purchased ahead of the game during a Black Friday sale, but I am sure that her new Claire line will be just as pleasing.

My hair is one of Truth Hawks’ newest releases. With its side part over the eye, it’s a fun look.

Darlin Do Not Fear

Finally I show you my shoes.. and legwarmers. Also made by Violace Huntress, they are amalgamations of purchased sculpties with some terrific textures. I really like the shape of the shoe with the legwarmer combined. It’s a sort of boot alternative and a little different than the run of the mill shoe with legwarmer or boot.

Darlin Do Not Fear

‘Cause it won’t last – your worries will pass
All your troubles they don’t stand a chance
And it always hurts the worst when it’s the ones we love the most
Darlin’ do not fear what you don’t really know
