LOTD #18

Why do women do some much work to get a man? Think about it for a minute. To impress men, we shower, wash and condition our hair, then either straighten it or curl it depending upon the look we hope to come out with. We do the mani and pedi thing, because God forbid we get caught with one chipped nail, which is quite easy considering all of the cooking, cleaning and other chores that we do throughout the day. We have our face and other parts of our bodies waxed, bleached, plucked or zapped. Heaven help us if we have a hair somewhere that it is not supposed to be! We apply foundation, powder, blush, mascara, and eyeliner. Then we spend at least an hour figuring out what to wear, messing up an entire room and closet in the process. And we still worry that we won’t be presentable to a man after all of that!

On the other end of the spectrum, men will hopefully shower for us. Brush their hair, if they have any left. And shave if they feel like it. They may even show up with the scruffy look and still look good. And they throw on whatever they can find to wear. Do they worry that they won’t be presentable for a woman? No!

I think we women need to go on strike! Turn the tables on the men. Throw down your curling irons, make-up, brushes, and stillettos! Show up just the way we are. Natural. Oh my God, what am I saying? *Runs around picking up all of my stuff and scurries off to get ready!*

The lingerie I am wearing is the Tender Caress set from Blacklace and it was on sale this week (right at the front of the store in front of the entrance). My hair is the new Betsy style from Truth. The curlers are even color changeable so you can match your outfit. And I am wearing the flat bare feet from [Gos] Boutique.

The poses that I used for these photos are from .::Kirin Poses::.. They are the Coco poses and they are available at The Pose Fair.

The Drew Rock and Roll Set is new from Sn@tch. It is mesh and comes in standard sizing and it comes in eight different colors for the tank top. I picked the black top to go with the pants. The shoes that I am wearing are the Shiki Platform Heels from Maitreya Gold. The Shiki Platform Heels are unrigged mesh, with an option to be hidden, which will leave you on tip-toed bare feet.The platform is scripted for color and texture changes with thirty options to choose from. If you buy the fat pack you will also have the option to change the color of the straps. That is 250 different color options! The Shiki Platforms come in three standard sizes and are resizeable. There are save slots on the resizer pages so that you can save your settings. The last tab on the HUD has a help option with advice on how to match your skin and it can direct you to a blog page with the information on the most popular skins.

I am wearing the Gaia hair by Truth which is a cute, shorter style that falls over one eye. Very sexy. This style is actually closest to my style in real life.

The poses that I am using are by fri.day. They are the bliss poses and I am showing three of the six poses available in the pack at The Pose Fair. Darling Monday (of fri.day) has also come up with some poses that were created to be used with the SLink medium feet. I picked those up as well, they are the careless and monday poses, but I will have to blog those separately.

Happy Easter 2014

The Daffodil Bunny is a group gift for Easter by Vita’s Boudoir. The outfit comes with the bunny ears and flowers for the head, the bodice, and the collar. The boots are new from Maitreya Gold. They are the Laud boots. The flowers behind me in the picture were also made by Precious Restless and are for sale now at Boudoir.

The Maitreya Gold Laud boots come with the mesh feet. There is also a pair of boots included that can be worn with the SLink high feet. With the Maitreya Gold mesh HUD you can match the feet to your skin color. You can also use the new ‘ONLINE SKIN DATABASE’ feature. This feature will direct you to the skin database on their webpage, where you can find your skin and have the tone sent directly to your HUD and your feet. There are six different outsole colors to choose from and fourteen colors for the heel and sole of the boots.

The pose that I am using is from Le Poppycock at The Pose Fair and it is called *Zip-A-Dee* My Oh My. The bird is included with the pose. The pose can be found on the back of the wall as you enter – it’s in the gacha vendor.

I’d like to wish you all a Happy Easter!

Indyra Seigo has been celebrating the remodeling of the mainstore for {Indyra} this whole past week by giving away spectacular gifts to the members of the the Indyra Originals Fashionista Files group. The last gift of the week is this Solange skirt and top, the Suha necklace and earrings set, and the Marina wedge shoes and matching totebag. The quality of the gifts that Indyra gives to her groups members is excellent and I highly recommend joining the group.

The hair that I am wearing is the new April hair from Truth Hair. The April hair is a cute style that looks windswept, with bangs off to the side and braids pulled across the top of the bangs. There is a color changeable clip to hold this all in place.

LOTD #14

Short blog today. It’s too beautiful outside to side at the computer for very long. I’m wearing two more items that I picked up from faMESHed yesterday – the Valentin hair from ~Tableau Vivant~ and the Jilly dress by MOLiCHiNO, both beautiful new spring styles. I figured I’d better do this fast before things get lost in my inventory, as they have a tendency to do. I took another stroll around the sim “it all starts with a smile”. If you’ve not done so yet, I definitely suggest that you do so. It has beautiful scenery in which to take photos, and I am still finding something new even on my fifth visit there.

What I’m Wearing:
Skin: -Belleza- Ria
Hair: ~Tableau Vivant~ Valentin at faMESHed
Eyes: *YS&YS* Ipnotic Eyes
Dress: MOLiCHiNO Jilly Dress at faMESHed

I spent some time at faMESHed earlier today and picked up a few things including this outfit by Rebel Hope, the jewelry by Maxi Gossamer and the shoes by Gos. It has been a while since I’ve worn anything by Rebel Hope, but I am really liking some of the newer mesh clothes that she is coming out with including this pair of capri pants and corset top. The Kinbaku Heart jewelry set by Maxi Gossamer comes in gold and silver options and also a short and long version of the necklace. The stone and gems are also color changeable.

The Charlotte Mary Jane Pumps from Gos are beautifully made and come with a few different sock or stocking options. You can also remove them if you’d like using the skin matching HUD. Also new to Gos shoes is the colour+ option. The colour+ option will be noted on the poster in the upper right-hand corner by a red mark and will be available with newer shoes, not older shoes. This option gives you the ability to mix and match without the need for scripts or updates. So let’s say you buy a pair of shoes in black and another pair in silver, you would simply need to rez or wear each pair to let the system know that you own both colors and both texture options will appear in the menu. Pretty cool huh?

The skin that I am wearing is the newly released Ria by Belleza. I instantly fell in love with the skin and bought the fatpack, so you’ll be seeing a lot of it. The hair is new by Truth and called Lottie. Lottie is a cute pigtails style with bangs off to side. Love it!

I love this mesh Cul-De-Sac dress and these mesh Jazz Boots from Maitreya. I just had to buy them and blog them. The dress comes with a cute bow to go by the chest, but I had to take it off so it did not interfere with my hair.

This hair is pretty awesome. It is from Truth and it is called Maisy. It comes with the little loopy buns as an attachment, so you can wear it with them or without them. I kind of look like Chrissy from Three’s Company wearing this hair. And yes, I realize that I am dating myself in that sentence.

The skin is once again by YourSkin & Your Shape (*YS&YS*). It is called Mina and I am wearing the Mina shape along with it. I’m also wearing the Ipnotic eyes from *YS&YS* in the green tone. The skin is available exclusively at The Skin Fair, and The Skin Fair ends today.

I’m wearing another new skin that I got at The Skin Fair by *YourSkin &YourShape* called Jenie, along with the Jenie shape. I love the beautiful, healthy tone of this skin and the way that it looks with the Ipnotic Eyes in the snow tone (also by *YS&YS*).

My hair is new from Truth and is called Lagertha. I love the braids that come down along the sides of the hair and the way the top poofs.

My jewelry is made by Maxi Gossamer and is called the 92 Summer of Love Peace Sign set.

My outfit is from Fishy Strawberry. I’m wearing the Yoga Pants in gray and the Joy Cashmere Sweater in champagne. My shoes are from Maitreya Gold and they are the Allure shoes in Bordeaux.

I don’t remember how I landed on the sim where I took these blog photos, but I found large breedable cats. So if you will excuse me, I will now have to go investigate further!

This outfit, which is called Lust for Spring, is by Boudoir and was made exclusively for the SAVIAD Spring Fashion Fair. It is, of course, beautifully made and detailed as can only be expected from Precious Restless. My favorite part of the outfit is the lace skirt, which includes lace butterflies along the edges. Absolutely gorgeous.

The skin that I am wearing is from The Skin Fair. The Abby skin by *YS&YS* and is available exclusively at The Skin Fair. I’m wearing the Abby shape and Ipnotic Eyes, also by *YS&YS*.

The hair is new from Truth Hair and is called Harriet. Harriet is a cute, shorter cut with bangs. It went very well with the beautiful headpiece of flowers that came with the Lust for Spring outfit.
