Song of Songs

It’s a funny time of the year to be walking alone.

Bare Rose is one of those stores that I visit infrequently, but every time I pop in I wonder why I’m not there more often. June Dion’s store is bursting with inexpensive outfits with everything from fantasy to casual styles. You do have to sift through, but it’s definitely worth it to locate gems like this cropped jacket from the Snow Smile set. For less than L$200 you’ll get several entire outfits – recolours of the same thing – but since the items are also transferable you can either load up on options yourself or kit out your friends and alts. This fur-trimmed coat has a suede feel and comes complete with wide half sleeves, the open front ornamented with popper fastenings on thick leather straps. It’s cute and cosy, well worth the sale price alone although you’ll also get sloganed tops, denim shorts and sash belts for your money. Read the rest of this entry »

Puppy Love

I can’t resist bringing Algernon out to play every so often – a virtual pug should spend more time out of one’s inventory, only this lazy blighter is firmly wedged in the bag and doesn’t care much for any form of exercise. Still, he enjoys a bit of fresh air every once in a while, and his carrier makes rather a fetching accessory with the right outfit.

This look began with this new coat from Swansong, a short-sleeve cape that makes creative use of the alpha layer to cover your chest and make sure the prim fits snugly over the body, so if you’ve not converted to viewer 2 or compatible yet you’re going to miss out. The wide collar is piped around the edges and tied with a bow; ribbon, trim and the inside lining are all colour change with a few options included in the on-touch HUD. Read the rest of this entry »

Self Confessed Chocoholic

There’s more to life than chocolate. Just not today.

My typical choices of hair colour vary from dark brown to red, but most of my Hair Fair purchases this year have been in brown tones. This rich chocolate texture from Magika definitely suited the theme of this post, and happily the style I chose is accompanied by a colour-change tie that also comes in a cocoa tone. Magika is featuring several new styles at Hair Fair 2010, but Kirsty was an instant favourite with me, the hairline high with fringe parted on a bias with wisps covering the right eye. The body of the hair is pulled back under the band, a few strands still flicking free, twisted into a large bun on the side. If you’re finding the fair a little difficult to navigate, the Hair Fair blog features a map of all the sims listing where each designer can be found – very handy if you’re fighting lag and already know what you’re looking for.
