❥ Go Vintage

Get Inked 8.1

Get vintage!

Go vintage. Go vintage. Go vintage. My mind has been screaming it all week! Okay okay, Brain, I hear you. I cave, I cave. So I did. I went vintage. Meaning, I’m not wearing any mesh in this picture. I took vintage to a new Second Life level.

I’m pretty much a dinosaur in SL these days. I’ve been hanging around the Linden world since 2005. You know what that means? Scary enough, I predate not only Windlight, but sculpts. That’s right. We didn’t even have sculpts. These were the days where SL went down for maintenance every Tuesday instead of just rolling restarts. Pleasant eh? Yeah. We’ve come a long way, baby.

I love mesh. It adds that smoothness I’ve always craved in Second Life. But, I’ll admit, I have a love hate relationship with it. It doesn’t always fit, creators don’t always rig it properly, and well, deformers can be a down right pain. Some days it actually leaves me missing the days when the best you could buy were sculpts. Sculpts which you could edit prim by prim to fit exactly how you wanted, or better yet, mod into something even better. Mesh has a lot of potential, but some days it hinders us too.

So I took a step back. I wanted to dive back into some oldies and make a stunningly cute look that wasn’t mesh for todays fashion gurus. The amusing part? I haven’t been this satisfied with an outfit in a long while.

The bulk of this outfit comes from Mon Tissu. Its part of their older line and I’ve always loved their flirty (yet classy) lace and preppy looks. Unfortunately, a lot of their mesh has never quite fit me right. Regardless, I adore both the new and the old products.

Accessorize me, baby. You’ve heard me say it time and time again. Accessories are your best friends! Just, don’t over do it. My favorites are usually a necklace, earrings, glasses, and some sort of cute clutch, purse, or backpack. Necklaces (especially the long ones), can really pull an outfit together some times. If you’re feeling bare, try adding one with a cute pendant or printed charm. Gold, silver, brass, it doesn’t matter, if it matches the outfit, its going to look good.

If you’re having trouble finding those oh-so-perfect lenses, then its time you take a trip over to K_gs. They have so many unique and cute styles, both for men and women. You really can’t go wrong there. My favorite pair happens to be a sculpted pair I’ve had for the better portion of a year now. They’re called Rasa, and they really rock my world. Color change lenses and frames, both nose and forehead positions for your glasses, I mean you really can’t go wrong. And if you want to look really cute and sassy, edge them down your nose a bit and give them a little tilt. It’ll look like you’re peering over the brim of them often.

And without further a due, that wraps up this blog post!

Hope everyone is well! Are you looking forward to Fantasy Faire?

I know I am…

Get Inked #2 with extras

February was when I saw it coming. I sat staring out the warm sun lit window of my little beach shack and saw the hurricane looming in the distance. Whore Couture, Collabor88, The Arcade, and more!? They were all heading my way in one blogging hurricane fiasco waiting to happen.

Where do I start? Which one do I blog first? But the Arcade has so many pretty things!! I want to blog them all!!! …And I still might. But this, this is a good start. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to blog. There were so many wonderful items that I really just wanted to put everything into one big room, take a picture of myself in a pile of them and call it good.

Yet, that wouldn’t have done them justice. I’ll say this much, I started seeing adverts for the latest Arcade Event (March) back in February, and I was already excited then. You have no idea how many amazing items all of those creators have put out… that is unless you’ve been.

Is it scary that I lost five thousand Lindens to Gatchas in under thirty minutes of my first being there? I think so. Was it worth it? Absolutely. I will savour my Gatcha addiction for months to come with the excellence of these items.

So lets start as square one. Food. Its my deadly weakness. Nommables… cute food decorations… I’m screwed. I -have- to have them at that point. So when Tee*fy released their Gatcha line up for sweets and sweet makers galore I was sold! I don’t think I put more money into a machine than this one. I LOVE cake pops, and… well just about everything they had. One of the items that stood out the most to me though, was their Beverage Dispenser. The Fruit Punch one is adorable! I also have yet to get the lemonade one. It will be a gift that I must get for Sei, being the owner of Lemon Tea and all.

The Sugar Battalion also won me over with their line up of cute decorative cupcakes shaped like tiny deer, goats/sheep, or rabbits. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get a picture of this go around. However, you can see them if you visit The Arcade. ( Now pictured below. )

Below I’m going to feature some more items from The Arcade that I (unfortunately) won’t have the chance to blog if I’m going to do everything that I want to this month.

❥ Icecream

I’m feeling long winded this go around, but lets get to the outfit. I wanted to use my Cake Pops Bouquet from Tee*fy and realized that it would be the base for my outfit this go around. So, to sweeten the mood, I selected a delectable little outfit from *ICING* that seemed to fit both the pops, and the skates at the same time. Hooray for 50s retro style car hops! It was the absolute perrrfect occasion! *ICING*’s Carhop Cutie outfit comes in multiple colors to suit your preference. Mine just happened to be, as usual, a nice light pink.

So here comes the bargain part of the outfit. Pulling the look together I decided I needed a few sweet based accessories. Believe ir or not I was able to gather not only the charm bracelet, but the charm necklace as well for under 20L. It was a steal (especially after my Arcade losses!) and they’re flat out adorable!

And finally, what car hop waits on cars with out a shiny new pair of skates? We can thank the Arcade again for these babies as The Secret Store released these beauties in a menagerie of colors! I promise you there’s a pair to fit any look, but these were my must haves of that gatcha. This was an Arcade month of pink!
