Choose Your Own Adventure

August 1st, that means faMESHed and I was an eager patron, when the clock struck midnight I headed over to get all the things and it was well worth it!

I was admittedly very excited and anxious for new ENTENTE items for faMESHed.  It is like adding extra whipped cream to a sundae to have the ENTENTE team creating new content for this already superb event.  Needless to say my first stop was to get this perfect new gillet aka tank top and massively detailed boots.  As always the ENTENTE gear has a wide array of textures to add to the base and that sure makes this Cajun one happy buyer.  A great feature that you can find with the faMESHed releases are fatpacks of the textures, very handy and worth the price!

I set out on a little adventure to explore some new places.  I jot down slurls when I read my fellow bloggers posts and peruse flickr, so I can venture out and see the great spots everyone else is discovering.  What are your current favorite sims right now?

It is almost Friday, I hope you have great plans laid out for the weekend and if not, that at the very least it is a nice relaxing time!

Late Night On Maudlin Street

August continues to be very busy for events and covering them.  I may need a vacation after this week is over!  That or I seriously need a few clones.

I liked to add decor and furnishings to the house that catch my eye and add a realism to my environment.  For The Mens Dept, Kaz Nayar, brilliant mind behind PILOT created the Bridges Bar Cart.  It is mesh of course, and only 7 land impact!  One single item, and all that detail, not to mention at a ridiculously low price at TMD this month.  This piece is a particular favorite of mine due to the simple fact it is rather timeless.  I could have put it in a shot to cover some more vintage goodness, or  placed it in a VIP room of a club.  Versatile decor is what I have grown to expect but more so appreciate from PILOT.

You’ve been starin at my boots havent you?  Me too, they are pretty amazing.  New mesh J’s Studded Long boots by JD Gazov are a blast from my past with the style and studs, I had to have them.  With a simple easy menu to control the boot tops, you have options to have them straight, lowered or flopped down.  They come in several colors and fit like a glove.

Also, I have some news to share.  You can now find my posts on Style Academy.  Thank you Teshan Wycliffe for the warm welcome.  

Now, off to get some groceries for a late afternoon lunch!

The Mens Dept-August: I Promise You I Will

August 2012 has been the busiest month of my SecondLife!  How many events do we have going right now and more to come when the 8th rolls around.  The Mens Dept August collection is just superb.  This is still my favorite event as it offers a little bit of everything for the men yet versatile enough to have many unisex items for everyone to enjoy.

One creator that I discovered about a month ago has really impressed me from day one.  Tegan Sara of floorplan creates the type of home decor and furnishings that I just adore.  From fun colored dressers to catchy little wall message boards, I have had a great time decorating with floorplan items.  You can get an amazing steal of a deal at The Mens Dept this month from floorplan, and Tegan just added an additional color set.

I am very fond of Cracked Mirror’s mens line.  I made sure my shy genes were stuck in a vault so I could rave to her about the shirt and shorts she has out at The Mens Dept this round.  I love a short sleeved shirt, and one made of mesh, with proper rolled sleeves that do not bulk into your body or leave gaps of space, and a tie to boot, yeah Cracked you rocked this shirt hard lady and I’m gonna wear them till they have holes in them!

I coupled my ensemble with man items from FaMESHed another amazing event that I never miss.  I hope you are enjoying the amazing packed full of events month of August, stay tuned for more items from the grids fabulous event organizers and creators.

Please note that The Mens Dept moved next to the space they had in July.  You can follow my links to the new location!

Vintage Fair Preview-Captivity Poses, Epicosity & More: One day, I May Call Upon You To Do A Service For Me

Are you counting the minutes to Vintage Fair 2012?  Here is a sneak peek of an amazing pose prop from Captivity Poses.  Always indeed captivating, Captivity Co. poses bring to life real world items that amplify any photograph.  This vintage noir chair is timeless and so well detailed, I’m going to keep it in the house permanently.  Epicosity has a couple full suit outfits for Vintage Fair, which we all know the more male items the better!  This mesh suit is my favorite of the offered items, strikingly classic, and equally timeless item to have in your possession.  There’s nothing like a well dressed man.

The 70s Retro Skybox from %Percent Furniture & Lighting is partial mesh and very posh!  I added a bit of  a study flare to it with these beautiful silent memories frames from vespertine, the lush roses from Hanaya, and the art deco style light and poster from MELU DECO all available at Vintage Fair tomorrow at 4pm SLT.

Vintage Fair 2012 Preview-oOo Studio & Legal Insanity: Summer Breeze

Creator Olaenka Chesnokov of oOo Studio went above and beyond with her phenomenal “around the world” series of poses for Vintage Fair 2012

which opens August 4th at 4pm SLT!  The poses range from single to couples and all have a destination theme from Argentina to Scotland, the mix of culture and creativity is just astounding.  I had the pleasure of speaking to Olaenka during this preview week and she is even more lovely than her amazing poses, a true pleasure to speak with.  Each pose is fluid and natural, creating a lush harmony no matter the level of your poses needs. From Paris to the beach, oOo Studios creations for vintage fair take you away on a Summer trip sure to please any traveler .

From this set I chose the pose from the many I purchased.  Coupled with this beach themed outfit from Legal Insanity, the sea breeze was callin my name and with the excessive heat we are having in the states, it was a perfect afternoon to dust off the surfboard.  The shirt has a fun graphic on it for Summer and the mesh shorts are roomy and stylish, making a great Summer outfit. Less than 24 hours and counting, Vintage Fair 2012 is almost upon us!

Vintage Fair Preview-evolve & 22769: We Could Be Heroes

Only a couple more days until  Vintage Fair 2012 opens!  BellaStarr Fheng aka Bella of evolve poses has created and exclusive for Vintage Fair that I had a great time using in this photograph.  I love evolve poses, they are versatile, flow beautifully and it’s no surprise as Bella is an amazing photographer.

From the moment I saw Bella’s ad I knew what I wanted to do, the image started forming.  Add this great mesh army shirt from the talented boys at 22769 and that image in my mind came to full light. The end result is not too shabby!
