Wow, real life has been really hectic this week with a super long final exam. I’m starting off my posts for the month of May today with a close-up photo. Great items are available for the events that I blog and they really needed this kind of shot. Given there are many more, I will probably do a few more photos like this so I can better show you the details of each piece. The theme today is a little dark, which I suppose mirrors my current stress level. I hope you find everything as exquisite as I do.
Given that the weather is warming up where I live and the birds have come back singing, I’m ready for spring to finally be here. In a way I kind of feel like Belle from Beauty and the Beast with the blue and yellow. The colors make me very happy. There are a mix of event items for this look and the photo was taken at Obsession Exposed Studio and Gardens. It’s an amazing sim with lots of locations for great shots. I go there regularly.

The Instruments for February is fast approaching. It starts in a matter of days, so here is a preview of the outfit available from Nya’s Shop. Not only do I like to blog her items because she is a native Romanian designer, but also because I think her ensembles and patterns are beyond adorable. Since taking this photo, I have kept wearing the outfit. Might be time to launder it. It’s been a little while since I posted anything from Glamistry, so today I’m showing you the chic Amaryllis heels. They add a bit of spice. I’m definitely ready for Valentine’s Day now!

As much as I can’t believe Christmas is almost here, I am already getting into the spirit! It is fun to dress up and decorate with holiday items. Make sure to check out the great events I have linked below.
Items available at the Christmas Expo and Winter Breedables Fair to support Relay for Life:

This gown is one of the most gorgeous I have seen on Second Life. It comes in this blue and also has a yellow base/skirt version called Goldfinch. The birds from the LODE gacha at The Chapter Four fit perfectly with this Peacock gown and I have some butterfly friend with me that came with a hair from Atomic. The earrings are Glam Affair for Fifty Linden Friday. They are worth way more than that given their high quality, so get them while you have the chance. I am also wearing the Haste Collared Bracelet which is chic and I think it could match many different types of look whether casual or more on the formal side. Sometimes I think we can be surprised at how versatile items are. The bracelet comes with a HUD so you can change the metal texture.

This gown is gorgeous! Because I’m a brunette in Second Life, I decided to pay homage to Bell from Beauty and the Beast by wearing the sunshine version of the dress. This really is one of my favorite gowns ever from Junbug because of the details and also the delicate pattern all over the yellow folds of fabric.
Thank goodness it’s Friday! Which means Fifty Linden Friday is happening and you can find many gorgeous items for sale. As usual, Junbug has produced a realistically detailed piece. I love in particularly as I have been a Pride & Prejudice fan since I was an adolescent. My love for the story (and the original BBC miniseries) was so strong, I even married a man with Mr. Darcy’s Myers-Briggs personality type! To better show the pieces, I’m wearing the wonderful updo known as Devinna from Truth Hair. It has been in my inventory beckoning for me to wear it. And now is the perfect time. I like the option of wearing a bow or not with the headband. Again today, as with Tuesday, I’m showing the Kallisto skin from Glam Affair. The Jamaica tone is available at ROMP. Also, MUA has the Elle nail appliers for slink. These are not the only color – while I chose a neutral, there are others and they all come with the crisp white tips. Even though I blogged the necklace the other day as well, I wanted to show you in a close-up so the details are more evident.

Going against the grain is what it means to be chic. The name of the LivGlam outfit (dress and shirt) I’m showing today is “Watch Me Fly.” It has three solid colors to choose from in the HUD and three vastly different skirt patterns. Any chance I get, I will forever blog the leopard print. In addition, it comes with the top that you can see underneath. If you want to add some spice to your life, there’s always the option of wearing it without. LivGlam has lots of vendors set-up outside the main store full of great specials for 55 Thursday. I have a sneaky suspicion the items will be available for a few extra days. Nonetheless, don’t waste any time going over there! For this week, LivGlam is the main event sponsor. It truly is an extra special celebration over at the store. If you’re a frequent customer then you haven’t seen anything like this in a while.
The outfit just so happens to pair nicely with this mask from Finesmith that is decorated with silky feathers. This week begun the new round of Cosmopolitan Sale Room, and that’s where you’ll find this beautiful accessory. Everything is under 100L.
Dress: LivGlam – Watch me fly Dress (special for 55 Thursday)
Mask: Finesmith – Cosmic – black (found at Cosmopolitan Sale Room)
Purse: Faun – Hato Shoulder Bag (found at The Chapter Four)
