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.

Aubergine (52 Weeks of Color Challenge — Eggplant)

Aubergine

Color is probably what hooked me on SL to begin with; all the beautiful colors, a world that can make RL look drab by comparison. And every week I scour my inventory — and the shops — to come up with my look for Luna’s color challenge. This week the color is eggplant. And I was surprised to find it so difficult. I’ve got loads of purply things, but one seemed too violet, another too rose, a third too lilac and a fourth too dark. This gorgeous lace top from Whippet & Buck definitely fits the bill though. I’ve got it in ‘antique’ and black as well, but have to say that my favorite is this deep inviting aubergine.

Breathe

LaceJacket

Sometimes it’s important to just stop. In the middle of your busy day, just stop. Breathe. Take a moment. Think about what’s really important. Realign yourself. Remember your priorities. Remember that life is short so best to make it beautiful and true. Let go of the petty b.s. Step away from the games others play. Distance yourself from the users and embrace those who believe in joy. Take a moment and breathe and think about what’s true.

STYLING

Here I’m wearing a brand new release from ArtMEfashion; in addition to the black I’m wearing here, this lovely lace jacket comes in red and in white — perfect for spring. It can be dressed down, as I’ve done here, or worn over a cocktail dress for a more formal look. My favorite Elikatira hairstyle is a modern take on an old-fashioned do, making it appropriate for any occasion. (And I didn’t even realize it was called ‘Breathe’ until just now, checking credits! Hmm…)

Hair: Elikatira — Breathe
Skin: Glam Affair — Mary
Eyes: Ibanez — ClearGlow — Greece
Lashes: Redgrave — Natural
Makeup: Chelle — Eyepop — Blueberry

Jacket*: ArtMEfashion — Summer Lace — Black **NEW**
Top: Whippet & Buck — Chapman Shift Dress — Naked

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!

My Black Stallion

Black Stallion

It seems like everyone I meet these days is going a bit animal crazy. Between breedable cats, dogs, horses, fish and what-have-you, all of SL is in a breeding frenzy. Or maybe it’s just another sign of impending spring: the hint of warmer weather, and the wearing of lighter clothing are unleashing our animal selves. Here I’m posing with my big old stallion (or as I call him, Ratbatsturd) totally out of vanity; I like the way his dark coat sets off my clothes and coloring. But I’d better get out of the way fast; his fervor is up, he’s eyeing all the lovely fillies, and I don’t want to get trampled (again).

Cherry! (52 Weeks of Color Challenge — Cerise)

Ocean in Cerise

The top of this cherry dress peeked out of a jacket I wore in an earlier post, but I find it so lovely that it’s getting a bit more exposure here. (Cherry = cerise in French.) Something about it makes me feel very ‘sexy secretary.’ I want to say, “Don’t you think it’s time you brought *me* some coffee, Mr. Smith?”

Shopping (and photoshopping)

Shopping

No, I do not do much photoshopping to any of my pictures. So far I’ve just used PS to smooth the borders and get rid of the worst of the ugly pixelation on my SL photos. My PS ‘skills’ are so rudimentary that rather than combining my SL look with my RL pic, I had to mess around with my city streets photo in PS, import it into SL, put it on some prims, take a shot, then bring the results of that effort back to PS. But I’m learning! And shopping in both worlds!
Going to try to sneak in a second shot after the jump to give you all a closeup. Wish me luck!
