#87 I need to go shopping

“I’ve purged myself of worldly goods; half my stuff is either being sold or going to charity. I need to go shopping.” – Christy Leigh Stewart

It was like a purge – back in July some stroke of LL doom swallowed one of my folders – never to be found again. Not just any folder – it was my CLOTHING folder – 50k of trash and treasure from 9 years in SL: clothes, shoes, jewelry, lingerie, hats, bags, umbrellas and watches …. the lot.

Now when I make up an outfit I need to go shopping.

shopping-1shopping-3

My shopping trip took me to old haunts (Zaara) and to new ones [VERSOV] – to collect DEMOS!

I love this outfit – it reminds me of some looks from the recent Spring 2017 Ready to Wear Fashion shows. I love the contrasting colors, textures, styles, the meticulous design details, the glam hairdos and sheer craziness of it all.

I slip into my favorite [ZE} LBD, zip up my Essenz heels, fluff up my D!va hair and lean in close to the mirror to check my Veechi lipstick and eyeshadow. Oops – I nearly forgot to check my nails. A quick coat of {ZOZ] in a  gold shade – superfast drying.

Hmm now  for jewelry – I’ll choose a couple of  LUXE. gold accessories – then add some from LaGyo. Done!

Zoom over to the IE photo studio to snap some selfies – then off to the casting. Wish me luck.

Fantastic sunflowers – what a joy to find these outfits!

I decided to channel Twiggy – adding this glossy updo from Vanity Hair, pastel makeup from Blacklace, eyeliner from *League*, bright earrings from Maxi Gossamer and finishing with these great shoes from KC

BakaBoo is a mini project by Ocean Blackthorne that features one-of-a-kind clothing that attempts to bridge the line between fashion and art. Expect truly unique pieces that are special, risky and never boring.

Kohn has been delighted to find LOTS of great menswear at the SWANK Event – and even agreed to wear the jacket part of this outfit  – we went to a 70’s disco party and danced up a storm.

#57 Remember the time…

“More we remember more is chance to know who we are….”
― Rati Tsiteladz

revisiting

I remember the time I took a trip to visit the houses of my past. I knew that my Aunt Isabel and Uncle Ike (they were our great-aunt and great uncle but we always called them that,) were no longer there – and I was nervous about knocking on the door and saying that I had come to visit the past. I think my love of classic cars, vintage anything and ginger steamed pudding can be traced back to them.

revisiting 1

My find is a dress by Marquess called Gia, which has matching sandals, and both items have a 6 color HUD. You can find them at a monthly event called Sequin Event – where the creators have an exclusive event item each month.

My Cadillac is from Image Essentials – and comes with a range of poses, set up in the Image Essential sim.
