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.

Walk a mile in these shoes!

Shoe Fair2

My pixel toes are no doubt virtually tired after all the traipsing around I did at Shoe Fair on Saturday, but there were so many lovely things to see (and buy) that I couldn’t stop until I’d made the complete circuit. I tried to be judicious about my purchases and limit my buying to Shoe Fair exclusives (with a portion of the proceeds going to Soles4Souls), and/or vendors that were new to me. But of course, that resolution didn’t last very long! (My wallet may be in more pain than my feet, but certainly for a good cause.) Today’s outfit is composed exclusively of things I bought at Shoe Fair (well, except for my undies!). I’ve seen the DCNY crochet dress on the feeds (and wanted it) but this color is a shoe fair exclusive and a perfect match for my new Pixel Mode shoes. The Fae Wedge is scrumptious, and it was only the miles and miles of Shoe Fair left to cover that kept me from buying the entire fatpack. (Tya, you know I’ll be back for more!) I had to take a close-up to show you how absolutely fabulously delicious they are!

FaeWedgeClose

This year, Shoe Fair leased some booths to non-shoe vendors, just in case anyone got bored by shoe shop after shoe shop after shoe shop. (I know, who could possibly ever be bored by shoes?!?) I’d never before seen the lovely jewelry made by Liliana Barrs of Undefined Lilies, but now that I have — isn’t this necklace lovely? — I’ll definitely be making regular trips to the shop!

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.

Skin: Glam Affair — Mary — Natural
Eyes: Curio — Tragic Eyes — Aqua (note: may no longer be available)
Lashes: Redgrave — Classy

Who are you? (and new from LeeZu!)

LunchDate2

When I first joined SL I created an avatar that looked as much as possible like my RL self. Later I made an alt who was physically everything my adolescent self had wanted to be and wasn’t: a tall busty brunette with emerald eyes and curly locks. Yet somehow she logged on, I felt a disconnect; she just didn’t feel like *me* in the way that my original avatar feels like me. Granted, the original has changed over time; she’s gotten taller and younger, thinner and blonder. I’ve also changed, though not quite in those same ways. But she still feels like me. So much so that, at a restaurant with friends the other day, someone behind me said “Ocean” and I turned around and said “Yes?”

Part of me envies those who fully transform themselves in SL. Fairies and furries, aliens and tinys — we see, and welcome, all kinds here. We know that some of the women we meet are really men and vice versa. It must be amazing to explore those other sides of oneself, and I wonder if it’s timidity or something else that keeps me from doing so. But, whatever path we choose, we’re either learning about our RL selves, or trying to run away from them. I hope I’m one of those who is learning.

STYLING

LeeZu’s new open blouse is amazing: the Arabesque (not shown here) is lovely and colorful; the Araplain, while less colorful is anything but plain. As always, LeeZu’s textures are intricately drawn and the prim attachments are flattering to every avatar. (Yup, I sprang for the fatpack.) I’m wearing it in green for today’s lunch date because it works so well with these great new Purple Moon sunglasses and lovely and practical shoulder bag from Les Petits Details.

Shulman, shopping and sky

Shulman2

Did a little shopping at RFL last night. (Um, okay, maybe it was a *lot* of shopping. And maybe it was early this morning, which explains why I’m so exhausted & incoherent today.) All of the FFL sims are amazing, and I’d urge everyone to go see them. Though…maybe not until *after* I’m done with my shopping. (*winks*)  This picture was taken at the Shulman sim, sponsored by Woe, and named, I believe, for Julius Shulman, a noted architectural photographer. Each sim is different and dramatic, and packed with fabulous things to buy. And each designer will be donating the proceeds from one or more of their creations to the American Cancer Society.

I’ll be wearing some of those lovely things in later posts, but went casual (and low-script) for my shopping expedition. I know I’m way early on this one, but next week’s color for Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge is sky blue, and given my love of the color, I’m thinking of wearing a different sky blue outfit every day until she announces the next color!

Going Places

It seems to just get busier & busier! This was me yesterday, heading out to a fashion show and party at fabulous new club called Club Infusion. What fun! Loads of people, great music, terrific dances! Saw some old friends, and met some new ones. I didn’t get any pictures because I was afraid to turn up my graphics settings, but I will try to go back with camera sometime when there’s a little less activity. I’m keeping a bit silent about the fabulous fashion show because I was fortunate enough to receive new items from both of the featured designers. So…another blog post coming up soon!

Wild, Wild Ocean

Wild Wild Ocean

As any smart, experienced man can tell you, a woman can be both a perfect lady and a wild animal. The contrast makes the whole package that much more compelling.

Inspired by Tya Fallingbridge’s very sexy shoes, the Lady T in Jaguar (a Pixel Mode group gift), I went on safari today. Not that I needed any help to get in touch with my animal self…but strolling among the wild creatures was a different sort of SL nature than that to which I’m accustomed. And do you see my friends here beside me? Just goes to show that the wildest beast can, under the right circumstances, be a total pussycat.

*Clique is new to me; I just discovered this pose shop this past weekend.  But I’m so happy I did! The poses are wonderful, and as a lifelong dancer-wannabe, I had to purchase the ballet set, among others. You’ll be seeing more of them on this blog and no doubt elsewhere.

On the homefront

What a relief it is to be home after such a busy weekend and start to the week! And, much as I love to dress up, there’s nothing like slipping into a fabulous faded pair of jeans and a soft, soft sweater for a lazy stroll around the home sim. (But yeah, I kept the high heels on… *winks*)
