Serendipitous Sands

Serendipitous Sands

Hello from Serendipitous Sands! This dreamy beach sim is the perfect place for today’s outfit. I am wearing this adorable Pico Top from A N E Fashion, and pairing it with the Cia Highwaist Shorts from The Secret Store.

I wear a lot of shoes from Ingenue, you could say that it’s my go-to brand for shoes. Most of the styles are available in plenty of colors and prints, and pairs well with casual styles. I am wearing the Elodie Flats from Ingenue. Exile is killing it with this gorgeous Long Beach hairstyle, available at Summerfest! It feels like summer is a year-long season in SL, which is alright with me cos I mostly live on the beach.

Life in Plastic

Life in Plastic

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.

Lace

Lace

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!

Holiday

Happy Holidays! Whatever you celebrate, you should do it in style. I am loving this gorgeous Uma Skater Dress and Mia Bolero from The Secret Store. I specifically chose to wear the Foil color cos I love the shimmery metallic look, and it pairs wonderfully with the Scarlet bolero and Marmont Pumps from A N E Shoes. These pumps are adorable! I’m delighted to find another brand of shoes in SL that works so well with my style; definitely keep an eye on A N E if you’re into pretty shoes.

I’m slowly but surely decorating my SL home for Christmas. I got a new Christmas tree this year from Moss & Mink! All the ornaments and decor are pastel, so it goes with my home perfectly. I have several other Christmas trees I want to put up as well, in more traditional colors. I love Christmas.

Since the launch of subscription boxes in SL, I have only purchased two. Those two boxes had about a dozen brands each, and I only really liked one or two items, so I decided that I would not buy any more subscription boxes. Sometimes I miss out on really great things from my favorite brands, but I didn’t want to pay $1,500 (sometimes more), just to have one item.

When I saw that Pink Fuel released these gorgeous Sugar Rush Eyeshadows as part of the Cutie Loot subscription box, it was already released so the price jumped from $1,500L to $3,000L! Unfortunately for the brands in Cutie Loot, the event fell apart due to mismanagement. Fortunately for me (and you!), Pink Fuel decided to release these at the main store for way less than subscription box price. Go get them!

These shadows are gorgeous, so shimmery.

Now is a good time to head over to Hair Fair! This gorgeous Lorelay hairstyle from enVogue is giving me wonder woman vibes. The twin braids are so cute!

I like clothes that are sexy without baring it all. Ricielli does it perfectly with this Paula Mini Top. I don’t have anything like this yet, and the length is perfect for pairing with high-waisted bottoms.

Be My Baby

Be My Baby

Let’s go camping! This adorable vintage pin-up style outfit is from The Secret Store. I am also wearing the The Be My Baby hairstyle from Exile. This month’s Collabor88 theme is called Resort, and the mood board indicates that it’s a retro resort style! I can’t get enough of this style in SL, cos it reminds me of the sweet stuff that artilleri made back in the day.

I’m also wearing these gorgeous Dorothy Heels from Ingenue. It’s available for the Slink ‘Kitten’ feet only. I like shorter heels in SL, but it seems that creators and maybe other residents, favor higher heels. These heels are a must-have for casual clothing, they’re also available in a bunch cheerful of colors.

Remember Me

Remember Me

Just when I think Second Life content can’t possibly get any better, it does get better, and that is the most exciting thing about being a consumer. This is the first time that I’ve seen bento animated hair, and I’m already craving more! I’ve seen animated hair from other brands, but I don’t know if they were bento or some other scripted method. Exile just released a few bento hairstyles, add them to your must have list! Watch the videos (Palace & Over the Edge) to see the animations! The hairstyles are even more stunning in-world cos the animations are so smooth.

Remember Me

How darling is this Vintage Blouse from ANE? I love the front of this blouse, it’s pleated and very pretty. Then I turned around, and I love the back even more! Vintage with a twist!

What I’m Wearing:

Exile – Palace (Bento)
ANE – Vintage Blouse @ The Vintage Fair
The Secret Store – Yulia Flare Skirt (Navy)

Happy Saturday! The Tara Jumpsuit from The Secret Store is an instant favorite of mine. I love long pants, and there’s not enough of it in SL. Even if it’s a jumpsuit, it’s still long pants! This jumpsuit is available in a variety of colors and patterns.

Truth Hair – AveryElena
Izzie’s – Miami Neon Glasses (White, rainbow lenses)
