better things.

Song For This Post: Better Things - Bouncing Souls

Super lightning fast quick one as I am RUNNING out the door to get ready for the Bouncing Souls show tonight. I am waaaay excited. One of my ultimate bands, they rarely come to Vancouver, and I am FREAKING!! Here's a happy song that maybe doesn't go with my feyling outfit, but tough titties as they say. Enjoy, loves!

out of the woods.

So this outfit is inspired by both the gorgeous Nickel Creek song I have running through my head, and by Clawtooth By Clawtooth's recent Halloween release of Pink Champagne hair in Softest Black (75L for a 2pk of colours, 4 styles of hair to choose from). I love the romantic soft dreaminess of this hair. I knew I needed an equally soft, romantic, vaguely 20s inspired headband, and when I slipped on the Rozen Maiden Headdress from Tarnished (oL Hunt Gift, tho I cannot remember which for the life of me.. perhaps the Twisted Hunt?), it was perfect.

The skin I am wearing in another Phoebe Skin from lessthanthree, Makeup 01. Softly coloured, it just fit the mood of the outfit I wanted. These go for 600L/skin, and you get a bald base or a hair base option, as well as special Phoebe Cates inspired eyes, with each makeup. You can also buy the fatpack for 4000L, which might seem like a lot, but she includes the 6 skins she released to her group memebers, never to be given out again, so you get an incredible deal! Plus, you can purchase these at the Skin Fair, and 50% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research.

The rest of my outfit is comprised of Decoy's hooded blazer (0L/fatpack for a limited time), OhMai's Hi Rise tank (5L/colourpk), Humming's wool check skirt (1L), Kneesocks Mit Suspenders from Pig Shop (75L), and 50 Flat's Moss Wool Flap Flats (0L in store gift). I love this whole outfit. It is exactly what I'd love to wear on those Fall days that are just crisp enough to wear layers, but warm enough that they aren't heavy ones.

All poses are by (pda) and these shots were taken @ Cutie Land, which has been given a gorgeous Autumn makeover. Go check it out!

rainy day.

Autumn in Vancouver often involves many days of rain. Granted, this year, we seem to be extraordinarily blessed with sunny days, which is far more like the coppery gold New England autumns I've been craving lately. I know, I should shut up about that, but I'm feeling homesick, which isn't bad considering I've only been here 5 years!

My outfit is comprised of pieces that you all need to run and snap up NOW!! Especially the items from Decoy, as they are having a special sale til Oct. 12th. Basically, everything in the store is 50% off, with select items (FATPACKS!!) for 0L. Just wow. The items are all so well textured, with no fault in the detailing that I could find. And the hair she offers is just gorgeous. Please stop in, snap up her gifts, but also get some of her incredible sale items as well - which will include sale only exclusive colours. The decoy items I am wearing here are as follows:

Inferno 88 jeans - 0L ea/all colours
Nicole hair - 0L/all colour packs
Jully boots - 0L/fatpack

The skin I am sporting is a recent Dutch Touch subscribo group gift, which I don't think is available anymore, but join up anyways! You'll be all set for the next gift/special sale that is sure to come up. My gorgeous jacket comes from OhMai, and honestly, I want to buy these in all the colours. As soon as I find a way to sell a pixel kidney or somethingat any rate, so I can afford to buy everything Anya puts out. I love her clothes and hair sooo much. Under OhMai's Hamilton Military jacket (150L/colour), I slipped on the Piddidle No More Tears Today shirt (0L group gift I THINK - I forget now >.<).

All poses are from [LAP] and were taken @ Rainytown, CreamShop's mainstore sim, with the exception of the last shot, which was taken @ the Mudhoney stall in the BlackMarket, with the sit pose included in the bench.

So, this is the post I was intending on doing when my modem went kaputski.. The hair may no longer be available, and if not, I apologise mightily! It's an incredibly detailed cap/hair combo from Waka & Yuki (0L instore Fall Gift).

The wicked coat is from Maschienwerk - a store I've blogged about before. This Navy Pea Coat is 0L (as is everything else at this location) and is completely resizable, so both sexes can wear it comfortably. The scarf is a gift from last year's Halloween by G Field, and the jeans are from The Plastik (Skinnah Halftone in Inertia - 0L former group gift). The boots are by J's (3way engineer boots 400L/colour).

This skin is one I've previously blogged, from lessthanthree - part of the Phoebe preview group gifts Nykki lavished upon us. I love the light dusitng of freckles across the nose this Summer makeup has. She is selling her Phoebe line of skins @ the skin fair, so please, pop in and see how unique her skins are.

The poses come from MNK, and all pictures were taken at the gorgeous Magic of Oz sim - home to the namy memorably creative hunts we have all loved (and look forward to attending again!).

all is love.

So, yeah my modem COMPLETELY melted down and after a truly annoying back and forth with my provider, I am back up and running. With this post of awesome *grin*. Yes, I have caught the fever.. because I have been listening to Karen O and The Kids' "Where The Wild Things Are" soundtrack. Pretty close to nonstop.

First - I have on the awesome group gift hair from Tarnished - Wild One. There is another version in store for sale that I will blog as soon as I can snap it up. With it I have the "Just Hope" hoodie (sans hood >.<) and jeans outfit from Tyranny Designs (400L for the full outfit w/sceptre/300L for just the hoodie/sceptre). It is quite possible that these may be my favourite new jeans. I may wear them until their pixels rot off my bod.

My skin is from Rockberry - Sasha w/freckles (300L for 4 skins - w/ or w/out freckles and tintable lip skins for both). I looooove this skin, and I know a version was given out as a group gift aaaaages ago, but I missed that boat.

All poses come from (pda), and I took these snaps in a sim I just discovered (aptly enough) called Where The Wild Things Are. It is incredible, and a place I can't wait to explore more! Stomping around, growling ferociously and waving round my sceptre, of course.
