Countryside Rewind

Snapshot_951

Seraphim does it again….leads me straight to Rewind.  This month’s theme, Summer of Love.  I couldn’t resist this darling Nell Dress by Miss Chelsea in floral $250L.  I truly feel like a flower child in this dress!

For the perfect backdrop to showcase this dress I headed to Countryside.  This is a luscious place, full of color, nature, peace and love.  It is so beautiful words cannot describe it.  You must visit.

It is my dream to one day travel to Greece.  The sea, the sun, the beautiful architecture and history!

But for now…..I will visit Greece in Second Life.  This is Half Moon Bay, Imia – Kastellorizo – Macedonia Theatre and Aegean Sea.  There is still construction going on, but if what is already there is any indication, it will be fantastic!   There is a club in progress, artwork, video games, a ferry to little islands and of course the white and blue structures that scream Greece.  I love it!

I am wearing Toksik Airy Top and Skirt in white from Kustom9.  $239L each piece.  The shoes are Slut Bacon Mesh Espadrilles $50L.  They come with a color hud and fit Slink, Belleza or Maitreya.

 

Netherwood

 

After a brief visit to Netherwood I had to return to explore more thoroughly.  This is a beautiful photogenic sim perfect for creating a story in pictures.  I decided my story would be Running Away to the Big City.  Small town girl leaving home, catching a train to the city in hopes of becoming “somebody”.  But we’re all somebody to someone and running away sometimes leads to returning to those that love and care for us.  I don’t know why, but this rail station, with its antique look and colors, surrounded by green country made me think this.

Every runaway needs a suitcase to hold their dreams and I found this Travel Suitcase with color hud by Ninety on the marketplace for $65L.  The dress is Arisaris/B&W~Gara 53~ Softly Dress $249L on the marketplace.  It comes with an extensive color and texture hud.   The shoes are a group gift by N-Core called Ciara strappy edition.  The package contains several colors.  They are free with $299L group join fee.  Completely worth the group fee since N-Core offers several group gifts and the shoes are to die for!

Swank/Deepmarsh

Swank is here!  I get so excited when it is Swank time.  Off I went, credit card in hand, to snatch up some goodies.  First I satisfied my hair addiction by buying C H A R M E Kenna hair for $199L.  It’s beautiful and frames my face just right.  Of course I had to get new eyes too and finally found the perfect grey eyes for my Vista head.  They are Mandala  Catwa and Lelutka Eyes but also include Omega appliers.  $80L, what a bargain!

The top is part of the SEVEN Betina outfit from the $55L sale list.  $55L at SEVEN.  The jeans are Montague Ripped Up Jeans $89L at The Cheeky Parrot from the $55L sale list.  And the shoes are a group gift from ALB Dream fashion, free with free group join.  Look around everywhere if you go there, group gifts are scattered throughout the store mixed in with regularly priced items.  Sort of like a scavenger hunt!

What a wonderful place to showcase these items….Deepmarsh by the Sea.   It’s gorgeous, so many photo opportunities, poses and props to play with.   Estate windlight gives the sky an eerie yellow cast which makes for some interesting photos.  Just lovely.

Interactive

Fameshed is one of my favorite shopping events.  I always find something different and cool.  Today was no exception.

The first thing I picked up were these great Wideleg Trousers by Coco.  They are $250L at Fameshed.  Next I had to have AvaWay Abigail Bracelets and Rings Set.  I love that the rings and bracelets aren’t huge and chunky and there is a hud for metal and stone colors.  They are $225L at Fameshed.  Finally my favorite item, the Mina Sandra interactive hair.  It is $300L at Fameshed.  The hair is dry until you fall into or get pushed into, or voluntarily jump into default s.l. water.  Then, as if by magic, it is wet!   It takes 135 seconds to dry in the sun, or 5 seconds to dry with the included blow dryer!

Uber etc

Snapshot_546Snapshot_559

I made it into Uber first try this time!  What is the world coming to?

First picture is Ison Farah Top in white $225L, Coco Extremewidelegjeans in light blue $250L and Truth Bloom for $250L. All available at Uber.  I love everything about this outfit.  The picture was taken at Diabolito Bay.

Second picture is Mossu Angelic bra and panties $199L each.  The picture doesn’t do them justice, they sparkle like subtle diamonds in the light.  Hair is Truth Bloom, same as the first picture, but with the style hud the hair is back and the bangs are more full.  All available at Uber.  Picture was taken at the Isles of Ice.

What is She Wearing?

imageedit_3_4278997298

I am a hopeless people watcher.  I admit it.  I also admit that when I see something someone is wearing and I love how it looks on her, I go out of my way to find it.  That is when the What is She Wearing hud comes in handy.  $35L on the marketplace.   It doesn’t always work.   For example, it doesn’t work for applied clothing like this fishnet top.  That is when you either ask, or search for it.  I get tongue tied so I search, lol!

The top is Alessandra Combo Outfit Roxy in black.  It comes with leather pants not shown here.  $99L on the marketplace.  Pants are Addams Robyn mesh suit pants $250L on the marketplace.  The belly chain is TD Mai Tai Belly ring and Waist Chain in Black Agate and Gold.  $199L on the marketplace.  I added my own shoes, bracelet and hair and voila’!  I had her look with my own twist.

I took the picture at Wayward Souls, a beautiful place with beaches, a club, spa, “fun” room and photo booth.  Do stop by and explore.  There at teleporters for your convenience and I had a lot of fun playing with the photobooth.
