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.

This is my third alt. So far, she’s a lot like what I originally envisioned Amelia being. Don’t ask me why I made her, I just did. I used to have this list of places for new avatars to go get free stuff but when I was shopping for her I surprised that most of those places didn’t have that stuff anymore. I did, however, find other places to fill in the gaps.
Her shape is a freebie from Lemon. It is copy/mod although I hadn’t changed anything when I took this picture. The skin and eyes are from the Pixeldolls L10 sale that’s been going on. Her coloring is inspired by a friend who just got back from Iraq. Her hair is a 1L items from ETD. Her clothes are from ETD too, the same sale area as the hair. Her shoes are a gift from joining the Maitreya group. And her earrings are from Junk which is always cheap.
Total to this point is less that 100L for a fairly personalized avatar. Where I really splurged was the AO. I could have probably made a fairly nice inexpensive one with some hunting but I opted for a fully premade one from Torrid. 350L for 15 poses, sits, walking and flying animations at this quality was just too good to pass up.
So that’s my experience with SL life on the cheap side. I might most more pics of later as she evolves.

More VG Republic, I saw this Twill Sweater and immediately thought of curling up in front of a fire with a cup of tea. Earrings are Resin ‘Candy Ring’, color-change and hair is called In Space from Curio (also a Hair Fair find).

Just what it says on the tin. VG Republic, aka Viva la Glam, is have a half off sale. Hopefully, they’re just moving. I went, I spent too many lindens, now I’m blogging.
Lita is the name of the dress, I love the way the skirt’s textured with a continuation of the top on it. There’s a prim for the neck but I left it off, preferring the simpler look.The Exotic Zeenu Necklace is a dollarbie in honor of the sale and the Resin Bangles are color-change.
I got Kitten from Magika Hair at the hair fair. I always think about just waiting until after the fair when the hairs are in the regular stores but then you don’t get the browsing through creators you don’t normally see.

Since Slide.com is down I can’t embed the slideshow of the Jewelry Expo Booths, but here’s the link to the Flickr slideshow. Some of the booths themselves are works of art.
Also don’t forget today is the Grand Opening of the new Bossa Nova shop at Amour 184, 59, 27
Don’t forget that at the Jewelry Expo there will be donations kiosk for the Red Cross. This money goes for a good cause and supports their efforts such as disaster relief, military family support, blood donations, as well as educational classes such as CPR and first aid. And when donations in the kiosks total L$50,000 I will run around the sim as RUTH. Miriel was kind enough to script the donations kiosks to display total donations instead of the individual kiosks. As of the time I’m writing this they are at L$16,726. So only L$33,274 to go.
And on a side note, I’m having no end of trouble trying to get web pages to load today.
