Does My Ass Look Big In This?

I’m guilty of asking this question more times than I care to admit, although I’m kinda backwards cos I hope the answer is yes! Being 5ft nothing and maybe 110 pounds RL, I’m always trying to look bigger/taller…I own 586745867 pairs of stompers and a ridiculous amount of baggy pants that tend to hang off my hips and get held precariously in place with a variety of belts.

My RL pants don’t hang quite as low as these awesome freebs from NV, but what the fuck right? It’s SL, and a bit of ass never killed anyone now did it :P Paired with my all time favorite boots from Sinistyle, the DNA boots are gore covered badness that leave bloody footprints, if you so choose, and seriously appropriate for Halloween.

Another favorite of mine is the Last Rites helmet from Fade Dana. Sadly we’ve lost her to the darkside (RL) but never fear, all her awesome shit is still available to buy…I made a point of double checking before posting, so I don’t get yelled at :P The top is from Paradisis, Jussy and I took a trip there last night, I’m not sure if Ankhari is redecorating, because we only found a few outfits and the top floor of the store seems to have vanished for the moment. Off to rest now before Minime gets home and creates havoc, not only do I have a rotten cold, I just got back from a lovely trip to the dentist and my face feels like a huge melon!

Part 2

I did warn there would be a part 2 to my shopping spree!!! This post has been sitting in drafts for a bit, the weather here has been so lush, that sitting inside to finish writing was not appealing to me at all. However, with so many prettys to show, I knew it was time to pull my finger out :P

I love love this tunic from So Many Styles! From the fit, to the texture it suits me down to the ground. Although it’s long enough to be worn as a dress, with some smexy heels, I dressed it down this time with some awesome skinny jeans.

Absolution is a new to me store, and this cute little plaid dress won me over. A quick warning though, there are no glitch pants included, the dress is on the jacket layer only. You do get 2 different lengths of skirt, and an alpha layer included if you prefer to use that instead of fiddling with sculpty modification.

Linen pants are just so summer nights to me. Cool and comfortable after a long hard day at the beach or by the pool. I paired these ones with a stunning top from The Sea Hole, which again includes an alpha layer.

Last but not least, the most adorable girly dress ever!! This one is from Priss. The soft pink is just beautiful and I adore the flower detailing. This brings me to the end of this particular shopping spree, my Milk Motion one is next :P

Shop Till You Drop

I’ve been so inspired lately, since making shadows work. At first the battle was getting them to show up, then it was getting settings I liked. After that it was making a kinda studio area that was open enough so that shadows still worked. Then later still it was making that area as pretty as a picture (pun intended :P) All this wittering does have a point I assure you! While wanting to make my spiffy new studio even moar spiffy, I knew it was the time to go through my huge props and poses folder and utilise some of the gorgeous stuff I had left to languish in there. It was also around this time I had a major meltdown when I realised that folder, and all of it’s contents were missing from my inv. Several fixes later and it still hasnt come back, so I was down about 50,000L’s worth in inventory and very emo to say the least.

So off to xsteet I went and found a great free pose prop thing. That was so gorgeous I went to the main store, and perved the creators profile. That led me to The Circle Project, as the creator had a special pose scene there (to be shown at a later date!) Once that was safely filed away, it was time to clothes shop baby!! The first store I went into was pesca, and the Haori1 immediately caught my eye. I havent seen anything like it before in SL and it reminds me of something my best friend wore for years and I always wanted to nab!

Then it was next door into The Sea Hole, where I had some kind of buying frenzy. I pretty much picked up at least one of everything that was in there, sometimes two….but we wont talk about my addictions today :P

circle 3

The perfect peasant blouse!!! Absolutely gorgeous, and soo works with a pair of flares.

circle 4

Seriously, who can resist showing off their legs with a supercute playsuit? This one comes in an array of textures, I chose the girliest one I could! I have many more purchases to show from this particular outing, but I had to split it up as I really did shop till I dropped!

Favorites

I have a pretty spectacular inventory, after over 4 years inworld and a pretty hardcore shopping addiction I really love the pieces of SL history I’ve accumulated along the way. I’m feeling nostalgic as once again Inventory Episode has hit a milestone. My little blog is 3 years old, and although it’s been terribly neglected for the best part of a year, I do love it so. To celebrate, I thought I would show just a couple of my favorite things from the last 3 years, new and old favorites.

VR 2

In 2009, LeLutka put on a huge and quite incredible fashion show, Fashion Experiment. I was lucky enough to be invited, though due to timezone bullfuckery I couldnt attend. I did spend up a storm though, totally falling in love with all the pieces from that release. Two years later, these releases still hold their own, showing just how ahead of itself as a brand LeLutka was back then. I love the structure of the dresses, the sexiness of the pants, and of course, the military feel of the Postal jacket still rocks my world! Shown above is Raven, that I have beautifuly accessorised with the amazing Harness Gag from VR Foundry. Another product ahead of it’s time, an award winner in ’06, it’s the gag other BDSM aficionados base their own on (albeit surreptitiously…bad bad copy botters). This gag can match any outfit and any avatar as it has the nifty advantage of being modifiable, something Vivian feels very strongly about. As for the features…I’ll let you road test those yourselves :P

VR 1

Postal shown above, ticks all the boxes for me. Pairing them with the Mithra pants was a no brainer, stunning leather, gorgeous fit, and knee pads!!! It also gave me a chance to slip into the beautiful platform pumps from J’s. They are perfection, from the blood red sole to the shape of the platform, love love them. I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my favorites as much as I have enjoyed wearing them!

Back Into It

So I figured I’d knock out a few posts to take my mind off the revolting weekend. As a break from Skinfair posts, I thought I’d show you some of the retail therapy I did to cheer myself up. It was an expensive weekend in more ways than one :P

nyte copy

I’ve got newness from Nyte ‘N’ Day in the form of the super cute Lijn dress in red. I love that the texturing makes you feel all cosy, while still sexy. I’m also showing off a new shape, Delyn Nelly, after meeting Linka Demina and her love, both of whom had on the best afros I’ve seen in ages. The lashes are also from Glow Studios, as are the earrings. Shock horror, me accessorising! The hair Dylan is from Maitreya, and the fat pack begged me to buy, swear.

nyteb copy

The beautiful top is Bloom in grey from Nyte ‘N’ Day, I’m showing it with the awesome harem pants from Uzuri, they really are happy pants. We loves our happy pants in Australia, I wish I was home, I do miss it terribly. Ash Out.

Silent Sparrow

I haz the flu, for the second time in 3 weeks, bloody London and it’s stoopid weather! However, nothing could stop me doing this post as it’s about my very favorite store in SL. Silent Sparrow has long been a store I love, ever since I got a Halloween outfit there in ’07. My “Not So White Wedding” outfit remains in my inv to this day, which cannot be said of alot of purchases I made that year. In fact, piece for piece, my Silent Sparrow folder is the largest, unashamedly so :P

The Sprocket suit in Ash was one I didn’t actually own yet, but being a boy this week gave me the perfect opportunity to scoop it up and take it home.

The Ryou suit in Dove is a gorgeous suit, for either guys or girls. I also wanted to show it for the departure colour wise from Hya’s usual offerings. It really is spectacular, and I would have bought it for the pants alone, deadset perfect in every way.

And I couldn’t let Halloween go by without some blood. The Aconite suit is one I first saw on Ms Ach, and I wanted it soooo bad. Justice ended up buying it for me, as my account was having an epic cannot buy lindens phase, which seems to happen about once a year. The blood isn’t overdone, I love the bandages….all of em. I wanted to wear a tuff boy skin, so I chose my Inflict scrummyness. This particular one was a gift a few months ago, to celebrate the launch of the range, it’s a tad darker than I would usually go for, but works wonderfully for this post. These are some seriously stunning skins, Jussy flipped when she saw that at the Skin/Shape expo, and I spent hours standing in that booth just staring! Ok, entirely enough talking from me, go buy shit :P Ash out.
