Isn’t this hair amazing? Life in Plastic by Exile is fantastic, baby! There are so many things I want to blog about, but no time to fully research them. For example, Baked on Mesh – someone give me a summary! I am not interested in wearing old skins, or old system anything, but I think with Baked on Mesh, we can wear more layers and not rely on HUDs! I’ll play with this when I have time and blog about it in the future.
Another news that is interesting is the E2V Vendor system is retiring (self-hosted will continue running), so if you have gift cards and store credits, redeem those if they don’t transfer when merchants switch to a new vendor system. I have already received several notices from brands in SL that are able to continue using E2V. I can’t imagine how much panic this is causing on the grid, and merchants have a short time to find a new system.
Earlier this year, I had to switch my rental system to something else, since HippoTech retired. I have used Hippo since I bought my sim nearly a decade ago. I paid a small fee and got my money’s worth out of that system, so no complaints. It was easy enough to switch my rental system to something else since I have only a handful of tenants to set up.
There are so many scripted things that brands (and customers) rely on in SL, if they were to disappear suddenly, it would disrupt the market. I feel like we need to appreciate scripted things more, and pay scripters even more. They’re definitely the people who keep SL running smoothly, right behind the talented creators.
What I’m Wearing:
Exile – Life In Plastic
The Secret Store – Hazel Tank Top (Milk)
The Secret Store – Cora Belted Bottoms (Bloom)
Ingenue – Holl Flats (Cotton)
Second Life is turning 15 this year, and my avatar turns 12 this year! It honestly doesn’t feel that long. I’m so excited about all the changes, especially the return of last names! So many Residents want last names, I have no doubt this will raise a bunch of cash for Linden Lab. Whoever thought of bringing back last names and charging for it, give that person a promotion! It’s so clever!
My outfit today is inspired by this random head accessory from LODE that I bought over 6 months ago. I always buy hair flowers and hair accessories, even the crazy beautiful ones that I know I’ll never find an outfit to go with it. It’s SL, of course I can wear it casually. WHO WILL JUDGE ME? 😀
What I’m Wearing:
Exile – A Fine Mess
LODE Head Accessory – Gladiolus Birds (Golden Touch) Rare
Blueberry – Lila Crop Top, High Waist Sweater, Knot Tie Top, Rolled Cuff Jeans
Stealthic x Toksik – TKS Necklace (Rose Gold)
Ingenue – Ulla Sneakers (Surf)
Do you have a signature hair color that you’re known for wearing? I know many bloggers that commit to a specific shade of hair color, so they’re always recognizable. I think my preferred shade is blonde or brown, when I’m going for natural hair colors. When I’m in the mood for something fun, I like pastel shades like pink, teal, baby blue… etc! A good color palette should be soft and ethereal, like Exile’s Wildcard set of colors (I’m wearing The Idea of Her hairstyle).
Glam Affair just released the Enea (LeLutka Applier) Skin. I couldn’t have found a more perfect skin to wear with today’s look, cos the eye shadow matches perfectly with my hair color!
My outfit today is the Coco Flowy Top and Ainsley Skirt from Teefy. This outfit comes in some cute prints that reminds me of the 70’s! Someone invite me to a 70’s party!
Spring is coming! I am at The Secret Garden, it’s a gorgeous garden full of flowers and springtime loveliness. Unfortunately, it is inside of a sky dome so there is no natural lighting, so I couldn’t get any shadows in my photos.
I’m really drawn to traditional clothing around the world, so when I saw this Breath of Spring dress from CHU-ING at The Arcade, I kept playing until I won it. I normally don’t go for clothing gachas, but this dress is so cute! The dress includes a color-change HUD so I can wear it more than once.
I am also wearing the new Polly hairstyle from Truth. I love these side-swept bangs, they’re the perfect length so they don’t clash with my lashes. The hairstyle also pairs well with the Breath of Spring hair pin from CHU-ING.
What I’m Wearing:
Truth – Polly
ANE Jewelry – Twiggy DROP Earrings
CHU-ING – Breath of Spring White Rare, Shoes Rare, Hair Pin Pink
Lace will always be one of my favorite things in SL, but alpha clothing & alpha hair clashes in a bad way! Does this happen to anyone else? Thankfully the Jemma hairstyle from Exile has the hair swept behind the shoulders so it doesn’t clash with my outfit. I am wearing the Maya Lace Shirt and Lucy Lace Skirt from The Secret Store in a sweet Camelia red color. I missed doing a Valentine’s Day outfit this year, so this makes up for it!
