SL Evolution

September 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

A lot of challenges go around the Second Life fashion scene but I don’t remember any interesting me like this one. The premise is that you put together a photo showing how you’ve changed your avatar since you started. I used to have a folder with screenshots since I started that showed a huge evolution but it’s gone missing. So instead is the photo from the first blog post Tanya made for me in 2007 (when everyone thought I was her alt <g>).

There’s one a year up to tonight. When I was going through past blog posts, I was often struck with “This outfit is *that* old?”

I’m pretty sure I still have everything in these photos.








For tonight we have Whippet & Buck’s boatneck, which may be my favorite piece of clothing ever. The pants are mesh wide-leg by Jane. I’m interested in the possibilities of mesh but the difficulties of fitting it to the av shape make me hesitant. This is the only mesh piece I’ve bought so far. Skin is one of the more recent Curio releases and the shoes are, as always, Shiny Things. It’s very representative of me today.






Happy Fall

I’m not blogging much but I’m in world pretty much every day. The way outfits have been redone in the new viewer to link to the items instead of moving or copying them has finally made it useful for me. Now I really with it used tags for searching through all my outfits 😉

I’ve also fallen in love with the tattoo layer. The new beta viewer giving us the ability to wear multiple ones made me squee.

I’ve gone through my Fall outfits for pics for this post. I’ll point out some pieces but feel free to ask if you want something I didn’t list. Pretty much all the hair is from Truth, I’ve fallen in love with the textures in the last few months. Most of the skins are either my old favorite 5th & Oxford or Exile. I spent the Summer wearing Exile’s Chloe line and Have rarely taken off the September line since it came out.

This was supposed to be a post of it’s own but I was too busy. Whippet & Buck put out this dress in several colors. To me it makes the perfect LBD. So we have both a day and an evening look for demonstration. The black flats are from Ingenue, I collected several pairs of both styles in the store and have thus far resisted grabbing the rest of the colors and the heels.

I’ve also been experimenting with my hair and eye colors lately. Hair is Truth, eyes are from the late, great Miriel and skin is Exile. The September skins have cleverly put the darker eyebrow colors on tattoos. The sweater is an oldie but goody from Pink Outfitters. You’ll see these boots from Shiny Things in various colors in many of the pics.

I’ve also been in love with these tweed pencil skirts from Sn@tch. They’re inexpensive and come with two fabulous belts in both black and brown. The striped top is also from Sn@tch, a group gift I think.

Top and skirt from Whippet & Buck. Just assume I rave about everything they put out. 😉 The minis have been ideal for layering over the plethora of leggings/tights available. Brown hair is more Truth, the violet eyes are still Miriel.

I’ve been trying to come up with different ways to wears these tights from Fishy Strawberry. Something about the color combinations, the texture and the widths of the stripes is just right.

You’ve all seen the dress I’m sure. The tights are from This is Fawn and the undershirt is from Janie Marlowe’s new store Jane. Jane is another store I’m resisting buying out. Which is harder because it’s so inexpensive. There are a set of tank tops in just about every color for free in the back.

The jacket is another Jane find. I love it so much I bought all three colors.

Hey, a post!

What could possibly drag me out of my school-induced stupor? The opening of Savvy? designer Dakota Buck’s new store Whippet and Buck (along with Twiggy Whippet). I loved Savvy? and W&B looks like it’s going to be a new addiction.


My favorite item (so far) in the new store is the boatneck tees. They’re very versatile and come in a rainbow of colors for just $60L a piece. The hair is a freebie (limited time) from Bryce. Possibly the best place for men’s and short women’s hair on the grid. Pose is a new freebie from TorridWear. Just join the group.


We know ‘kota loves her system skirts. And she’s spreading the love again with these high-waisted versions. More Bryce hair. Another Torrid pose. This one from the Drama set.


This hair is new from Dark Mouse. The skirt is from SLink and the pose is Muism. Am I the only one who still wears her Vivant skins almost daily?


Finally, the cropped jacket is another B&W release. I saw it and though 50’s ladies lunch. I’d love to see what other people did with it though.

Still love Savvy. Sandals from Shiny Things, necklace from another drug dealer, Earthtones, bangles from Hielasangre Designs.

Savvy’s Eve of Destruction

I am a Savvy ‘holic, yes.I adore this jacket. It’s like a wearing leather to work. Did anyone else want to be Ms. Parker when they grey up?

I love the skirt too, although it’s too long for me to wear with tall boots. My legs look short and squat. Shiny Things’ Ruffle boots are a great compromise though.

Does anyone else remember that show? I was playing with Savvy?’s Dear Stephanie outfit and suddenly it was exactly what our hip grim reaper would wear.
