Actually I am a bit blue, as in I’m feeling the blues. I offered to look after my best friends dog for the day and he killed a pigeon in my garden. The pigeon kind of got stuck in my pond so I rescued it and it flew away, or so I thought. Next thing, my bf’s dog had the poor darling bird in its mouth. It was dead so there was a small comfort that I didn’t have to nurse it whilst it died. I hate it when things like this happen in my haven. I did give the pigeon a burial and said a few words but I can’t help but think a pigeon is looking for its mate right now. God here I go again crying…..I know its all part of the grand plan but I tend to feel things like this so deeply.
Sniff, sniff…on to the fashion.
My look today is a flowery, spring top and pants from Revanche, a shop situated at Fi*Friday and the Promenade sim. I’m a sucker for soft, powdery blue as a color so couldn’t pass this sweet top that reminds me of shabby chic material that Rachel Ashwell » View author and full post…would covet.
Today I’m the mad hatter wearing a gorgeous creation by Tiffy Vella from Eclectica Jewelry. This hat is called ‘Solaria Cloche’ shown in Tangerine tones that match with a jewelry set of the same name. The hat includes the hair in the colors ash, blonde, brunette, auburn and black As you can see, the necklace matches the embellishment on the hat. The ‘Solaria’ jewelry set contains earrings, rings and a necklace with the option of gold or silver metal. Pop along to Eclectica to view the wide range of colors that are available in both the hat and jewelry.
The coat and long cardigan are available from LAQ…just perfect for cold days. I found the tartan tights from Maitreya.
I am always honored to blog any product from Eclectica Jewelry because I believe in the quality of the pieces and want this label to be on the tips of everyone’s lips.
I’ve got two wee vents that will make me feel better. I purchased some mesh pants from a vendor at Fi*Friday the other day and popped them on and they’re grey. Nothing I do will bring up the texture. I send a pic and a message…nothing back. The creator has nothing in their profile but a link to Marketplace. Seriously, if you aren’t going into SL much, say so. Let your shoppers know how to get on to you.
I had a really good time putting this together. Half my attention was on purchasing pieces and the other on discovering some new places I hadn’t been before. In amongst that I was perusing the feeds and thought I’d mention two people and their blog who really add such positivity to our blogging community. Casja Lillihook and Gidge Uriza’s blog, It’s Only Fashion» View author and full post…, take the time to give credit to bloggers when they feel their artistry and creativity deserve merit. I think its a lovely idea and I really enjoy their ‘Fast Five’ posts immensely. With so much going on in SL and the vast amount of information that bombards us, its so easy to miss some really special posts. Their commentary makes me stop a moment and appreciate the talents among you all that in all sorts of ways, keeps me interested and engaged in SL. Bravo Casja and Gidge. I think that giving out bouquet’s says a lot about the people that you are.
Now on to my outfit. Oooo ahhhh, I’m in love with the top (Celoe) and pants (ElyMode) in this ensemble. I don’t know what Elysium Eilde of Elymode does with her textures because they are so polished and perfect. All of her clothing are distinctive in that her entire collection is cohesive and you know it’s Elymode. To me this is quite rare in SL, because I don’t often see a piece and know immediately who designed it. She also creates awesome eye make up among many other things so even more reason to visit.
Please note: no zebra’s were harmed in the making of this post. It’s faux all the way with zebra being my inspiration for the look. I found the fab zebra printed vest and clutch from C’est la vie and set about putting together a casual look. The pants are from the ::K:: label also available at C’est la vie.
I headed over to Mayfair for a spot of sight seeing, admiring the architecture of this fabulous build.
If you’re at a loss for something to do and you appreciate art, head on over to the Avalon Art District for a walk around the galleries. Something nice to do with your partner, friend or by yourself.

Hello darlings. I hope your day is going well and since you asked, mine has turned to s%$t. Woke up this morning and went to the mail box. What greeted me? A whopping AUS$7,600 account from my solicitor for services rendered thus far in respect to the financial disbursement of assets with my ex-husband. I mean we haven’t even agreed on anything yet because ‘the bum’ won’t turn up to any conciliation meetings. Boo hoo for me. Why are people so cruel? The person you invest your love in can just turn against you and want to see you fall. I’m not one of those people and that’s why I can’t understand that kind of mentality. Anyway, life is a journey and unfortunately mine has taken me to places I don’t care to visit but they tell me it will pass. I sure do hope so.
Now onto the fashion. I found this fab coat at Vero Modero the other day. I love the simplicity of it. I remembered the smart black and white hand bag from Meiling in my inventory and voila, a smart combo is born. I couldn’t love Mandala jewelery any more if I tried and I nabbed these gorgeous earrings called Omochi in Silver. I wish I owned everything in the store.
I’m feeling wild and free in this sexy little number from Orquidea. Beautifully fitted with excellent material folds brings this outfit to life. See the draping across the breasts…this must be so hard to do with black but its certainly been achieved with this don’t you think?
I added a little belt from LeLuka ‘Barbo’ that chains up at the front.
I searched for ages to find the right shoes and came across these wedges in a similar leopard print from Peqe.
Go visit Orquidea where you’ll find a great variety of different items from avant garde face tattoo’s to formal dresses. Your limo awaits you below…

Aussie, Aussie, Aussie. Oi, Oi, Oi. I’m Aussie all over in this cute Punk Racerback singlet showing the Australian flag from Miel. If you are feeling patriotic, head over to Miel to see if your country is represented.
These fabulous jeans including the belt are from Maitreya called BF Jeans and are my absolute favorite from all the jeans I own.
I love the racer back design…very sexy. Look at the back pockets of the jeans…perfectly threading. Don’t you just love it when you wear your jeans in over the years until they’re just perfect? The thought of breaking in another pair of jeans just sends you reeling!
Keeping with the flag theme, albeit now the UK flag, I purchased these Wild Shoes at The Dressing Room made by Just Design a few days ago. A total steal and I love them.
These pics were shot at a wonderful sim called Neva River. I’m sure most of you have heard/visited; however, for those of you who have not, it’s beautiful and has loads of photo opportunities.

While you lucky bunnies are enjoying Spring in the North, we down-under have sashayed into Autumn. A season I admit I love particularly when the leaves turn russet and we can snuggle inside by the fire.
I’ve put together an executive look for the smart working girl. The shirt, pants and belt make up the outfit called ‘Marve’ from Vero Modero. Very tailored and well put together..
Ok. Off to work she goes looking every inch the professional.

Hello bunnies. Well another night where sleep escapes me so thought I would style another outfit that I purchased recently. I headed over to the amazing Hazadous sim to take the photo’s. If you haven’t visited, you simply must.
Well we have more fair’s and hunts to poke a stick at and most of you will be running around like headless chickens trying to cram them in. We really are spoiled for choice these days and I’m grateful to other blogs who showcase whats available.

Stuffed after a long day of shopping, Chalice took a seat to rest her feet and her bank balance. I found these chairs at DownDownDown and they contain 5 different poses. Quirky eh?
Still in my love affair with brown and different colors, I found this funky little dress at Shine called “Urban Hippie”. I lucked in when I found the cute tote at Auxiliary and hoped it would work. I like the combination.
I added these tights from Riddle, a belt from Coco and boots from Maitreya.
I didn’t make the cut to become a Vero Modero model, but hey, it’s failures that makes us try harder. Congrats go to the successful models.
