In between the ridiculous crash session that was SL yesterday, I spent my time hanging out at Oubliette, exploring new nooks and crannies, and discovering secrets I had not known existed! I love its ever changing nature, and general air of tranquility and peace (with some wry mischievousness sprinkled in). I do think this is a place I will bring my friends more and more often to just hang out, or play Lewis and Clarke with.
This is me and my friend Roark (he's the designer of some pretty amazing hoodies etc that i've blogged before, and is working on a whole new set I hope to be able to show you soon!) We spent some time crashing, chatting, and really just hanging out in a way I've missed. The willow we are sitting on, and that I am lounging against in the first picture, has multiple sit poses, which is excellent for group gatherings, one on one time, or for photos (450L). There are many scattered such pieces from the different vendors tucked around Oubliette that are available for sale, so you can take home a little bit of the magic for yourself!
The gorgeous clock ruins you see behind me (499L!!) also includes multiple poses, and is a favourite piece of mine.
My outfit details are as follows: Slow Kitchen Chocolate Dot dress (0L lucky chair gift) Uncle Wiggily patchwork antlers (1L yes I barely take these off) Sweeter Than Candy suede boots (0L group gift!!! JOIN the subscribo ASAP) Magika Poof hair (200L for 5 tones) lessthan3 l'via l'viaquez skin (fanstasma opening gift, no longer available) Shiny Things Wood Elf necklace (1L @ the Gnubie Store) Zaara Cornelian bangle and earrings (previously blogged) lace stockings (I've had FOREVER - not sure where they're from)
Oooookay NOT STRICTLY fashion related, but a friend requested I do this, so I WILL.. and then i'll throw some more pics/details in at the end. Bear with me?

NOW - here's what is, to me, a very rocker kinda look:
I've got on Sh*t Happens Zebra Print jeans and Graphic tee (both dollarbies, tho I don't *think* the jeans are still available). Ana will put out one exclusive 1L wearable "demo" with each new release she offers - which is a uniquely AWESOME idea. I am FAR overdue for a Sh*t Happens plunder and pillage fest!
As well as my trusty en svale jean jacket (280L - you see how much use I get out of this thing? and i've only blogged 2% of the outfits I've worn it with), I've got on Philotic Energy's Melantha hair (200L), lessthan3's Headhunter for Fantasma skin (250L for three tones), and Sweeter Than Candy's purple ankle boots (0L subscribo gift get on the subscribo! She gives so many amazing gifts/sales to her group members).
All of these shots were taken at the Strangeways club - filled with crazy people, great tunes, and surrounded by a fun build, this place is always rockin'.
Okay so ever since I saw these rosaries from Balderdash, I've been itching to figure out what to do with them. Until, that is, I found this hair from W&Y (0L - but i'm unsure if it's still avail.) and paired it with the Tuli group gift skin in Goth (as you've heard a million times - 250 to join but SO worth it!). All of my pictures were taken at the amazing Oubliette sim, home to Balderdash, Evie's Closet, Winx's Home Furnishings, with more to come!

I hope you can tell from my pics that Saiyge's attention to detail is near insane. She HANDPLACES every ittybitty lil prim, and because of that, her necklaces and chains always look organic, and fall naturally on the chest, or wrist.
These come in five different colours (coal, wheatgrass, merlot, mignight, seaspray) and three options: the necklace (sold separately for 180L) and the wrist-wrapped rosary (225L sold together.
To complete my look, I am wearing a sweater from Tuli (0L- Journey sim hunt gift), ~silent sparrow~ sylvan corset top (5L Halloween charity gift - was packed with other items), pants from Luna's Boutique's vintage outfit (1L), my fave Sn@tch piercings (25L during the 1/2 off sale), chain choker from Chaos Lotus (0L christmas group gift), and cornelian earrins from Zaara's (0L - opening gift), as well as Dilly Dolls' Sketched Boots (0L - Midnight Madness gift)
This is for people who enjoy Second Life fashion (read: addicts like me). We've spent so much time wandering around SL, and love teaching people how to mix and match and really show their personal SL style - and all on freebies, bargains and the well-placed linden investment/splurge. (not to mention how to have a wicked fun time)
Come watch our SL inventories disgorge supreme goodness!
