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!

HUD Of Greatness!

Yay for new gadgets and gizmos…well new to me anyways! I read about the Komrad HUD from Kari, on Berry’s blog then drooled over the Flickr group before hitting up Xtreet to make it mine!

Summer Rain

What a total timesaver, you really could just snap a shot, crop out the HUD and upload to FLickr. Are you listening Ms Winx?!!! Anyways, you get a rainy pic as Minime and I got caught in an epic summer storm yesterday evening…we were like drowned rats by the time we got home! At least in SL I can look amazing in the rain :P

Newness!!

Here I am again, 5am blogging FTW!!! Minime has just gotten over a nasty bout of Gastro, which has seen me spend the last 2 days washing every bed set in the house a couple of times over, scrubbing and disinfecting everything in sight and cleaning up projectile vomit….I’m just so fashion :P I’m still trying to get my bodyclock back to normal after waking every couple of hours to hold her hair back for her, hence my shopping and blogging at the weirdest of hours!

My dress is one of the new releases this weekend from The Seahole. If you head to the mainstore before Sunday, you can grab it at a heavily reduced price. I got several colours and theyre all just as beautiful. The hair is just adorable, new from Elikatira. Theres something so cute about braids about to fall out, it’s a style that works incredibly well in SL. This one sports a colour change headband and elastics.

The bags are from House Of Fox, a store I discovered at the Ch1c event. You have to fatpack them, it’s impossible to buy just one! My gorgeous shoes are from Ricielli. I love this store, although I hadnt been there for the best part of a year. The clothes always looked so amazing, but never ever fitted me right, even after modding. Now they have nifty resize scripts which makes it much easier for me to work with the prims. My 2 gripes about the shoes are 1) there are no demos, and 2) there are no fatpacks. Other than that, the textures are outstanding and the choice of colours is great.

I’ve paired the Muse Blouse from The Seahole with another of my LeLutka purchases. The blouse is all floaty chiffony gorgeousness and comes with a matching bangle…yay!

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

circle2-1 copy

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.

circle2-5 copy

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.

circle2-4 copy

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.

circle2-8 copy

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!

circle 1

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!

Quickie

It’s half term here already, so minime is driving me batty and making me laugh all at the same time! Speaking of time, mine’s kinda limited so this is a super quick quickie.

Another post featuring old and new faves, the shoes being the new part! Fatpacking the newest release from G Field is a must for an array of gorgeous colours to match any mood. The top and skirt are my “go to” staples that I have worn again and again over the years. Enjoy!

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!
