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.

Alts give us an interesting chance to explore parts of ourselves we normally don’t see. My first alt came about because I was bored. I had no plans for her (so she hasn’t done much) but everyone was shocked when she turned out to be Cyber Goth. And there was nothing I could do to persuade her otherwise.
This is my second alt. She’s quite a bit more idiosyncratic and trendy than Amelia.
They look almost nothing alike, which is one reason why I like her, she can wear stuff Amelia can’t. Yes, I could change Amelia’s shape but I like her the way she is, an individual. I spend much less money on my alts than I do Amelia. One of the more interesting things to come out of this though is that when I do buy stuff for them, it tends to be at stores Amelia doesn’t get much stuff from. This one in particular is a Truth girl. She wears the boots in the first photo a lot and the top and shorts are from Truth too. She has a set of skins sent to the news group a while ago that she wears often. I can’t wait for the release.

So I finally got my computer to let me take pics again. Who knows how long it will last this time. The hair is a new one from Truth. A little wild for me usually but it was just too perfect for this dress from Cat5 (Category 5) by Trinity Hartunian.
Shoes are a new release from Aphrodite Creations. They come in half a dozen colors but with three heel types per color. The bracelet is from Zaara.
