Truth District Gifties

TruthDistrict

I don’t know about you, but I had an amazing and overwhelming weekend. Food, friends, and fireworks — who could ask for more, right? While I wasn’t thrilled to have to get back to work today there was something calming about being able to focus my mind on the tasks at hand and actually complete everything on today’s to-do list. When I got done with work, though, it was time to rush home and unpack some of the lovely things I acquired during the weekend’s shopping expeditions. Here I’m wearing just a few of the things I picked up at the new Truth District shopping sim. The sim itself was amazing; wonderfully laid out, beautifully built and landscaped, and, oh my, the stores! Many of my favorite creators have a presence here but I was even able to discover some new designers. And, despite the large number of vendors, there isn’t a single one who isn’t selling top quality merchandise. Because of the grand opening, many stores are offering freebies, including the hair, skin, top, and pants that I’m wearing above.

NOTE: All items except those with individual SLurl links are from Truth District.

Olive — 52 Weeks of Color Challenge

Olive

Another Saturday, another color for the challenge. And another day to relax and reflect. Here I’m standing on my new patio which, for this week, happens to be located in a grove of olive trees, watching as the afternoon starts to lose its morning sparkle and gets ready to fade into the mysteries of dusk. Debating whether to go out tonight, or just stay here, where it’s quiet, peaceful and just a tiny bit lonely.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune–without the words,
And never stops at all…

Culture Shock

A&M

If you’ve managed to make it to Culture Shock at Project Donate, you know that it’s filled to the brim with fabulous creations by wonderful designers who’ve joined together to give back. I’ve fallen in love with this bright, pretty top from Acid & Mala. Part of their new Boho Chic collection, it’s a joyful wave at at the hippie days of the 1960s, with a style updated for right now. The charming sculpted beaded ties at waist, sleeves and bustline add dimension to the look. The collection, which also includes a long skirt and a mini top, is available in five colors, though the orange/red shown here is only available at Culture Shock, now through May 22nd.

You found me…

Found

…and I wasn’t even hiding.

STYLE:

The moment I hear that Machang Pichot of Aoharu has released something new I’m overcome with excitement. So when one of my Plurk friends posted a pic of one of these new tunic dresses, I dropped everything and dashed to Aoharu. Which is to say that by the time I returned to Plurk, purchase in inventory, I’d completely forgotten who’d posted the picture. So, an apology to whoever it was, ’cause I would have liked to have given you credit here! The dress is darling, and comes in a number of colors in both the floral print I’m wearing here, and a subtle check. All the prim attachments are sculpted for easy resizing, and scripts can be removed to cut down on lag.

Hair: Truth — Jacqueline — Champagne **NEW**
Skin: Glam Affair — Mary — Natural
Eyes: Curio — Tragic Eyes — Aqua
Lashes: Redgrave — Natural
Tattoo Makeup: Mozz — Glittery Smokey Eye — Blue

Dress: Aoharu — Off Shoulder Gauze Tunic — Flower/Blue **NEW**

Necklace: Dark Mouse — Heart Stone — Copper (Gift)

Tangerine (52 Weeks of Color Challenge)

Tangerine

This week, the color challenge color is tangerine. I don’t tend to wear much in the yellow-orange family but something about the color suggested a retro vibe; I think I’m channeling the 80s, here, with my slick tight pants and my furry vest! Loving the EarthStones bikini beads, which I stretched a bit to use as a belt:

Straightforward

Apologies for my recent absence. I spilled a few drops of tea on my computer and experienced tech tragedy: the screen went black, the machine went to computer hospital and I’m praying for its safe return to health and home. Luckily for me, I managed to grab a shot of this lovely dress before the spillage. The dress is new from Les Petits Détails and makes me feel flirty and and happy.

It’s all about the hair — new from Maitreya!

Jordyn

Had a long-overdue visit with my hairdresser yesterday and, as usual, he made me feel beautiful. And this morning my SL email had a product announcement from Maitreya — new hair releases! I had to steal a moment to do a very quick post about Jordyn. This style is long and relaxed, but sophisticated. It’s sexy without being over the top. And the colors and textures are sublime; so very real! I’m going to try the other styles as well, but suspect I’ll be wearing this one a lot in days to come.

Hair: Maitreya — Jordyn — Natural Blonde **NEW**
