As I pray for the winter to be over, Urbanity draws me back in with their new Wool Dress. It fits your avatar’s curves like a glove while keeping you covered. There’s also a scarf to come with each dress. I chose the black dress because I finally found the boots I’ve been scouring SL for. Actually I found it on a girl and inspected her. I know, I’m bad. And also, did you know Fri.Day has poses you can get their for all of your picture taking needs? I’ve been meaning to mention the poses and in a different entry I probably will, but the poses I use for this post are all from Fri.Day and they’re reasonable priced too. After you get your dress from Urbanity, check out the poses at Fri.Day.
This dress makes me feel like I’m on the set of Mad Men, though I’ve never watched the show. All I know is Shane has a hardcore crush on January Jones and especially Christina Hendricks. I found this dress from Ingenue while doing a hunt. I’m not a fan of system skirts, but I couldn’t resist. I love how sexy yet elegant this dress makes me feel. I knew it’d look perfect under a coat from AOHARU, and with their 50% sale still going on, I couldn’t resist. By the time this is shown on the feed, the sale will be over. Hopefully you did all of your shopping purchases. The hair is a new one from LETLUKA and I love the soft curls things. It’s something different for me, but it looks great with the new skin I’m wearing from DUTCH TOUCH. The MAITREYA heels are an oldie but a staple in my virtual closet and the stockings from SHEER just gives everything an edge.
This is a true story here, no lie. I remember when I used to roleplay on the Kindly Sim (something I miss terribly btw) with my sister, Noelle Parisi. We were claiming to be twins and thus needed a wardrobe to match that. We were scouring the whole SL universe for something we can call our own and we ran into a little shop called Surf Couture. I’ve never heard of the shop before, but it had the cutest summery things in it. After going “OMG!!! WE FOUND A STORE”, Noelle and I went nuts and probably dropped 5K in an hour buying everything. The best buy were the basic flats, something I still wear to this day. Everyone asked where we got the flats from and we’d either “crash”, pretend we didn’t understand english, or ignore that person. There was one girl in particular who used to whine and whine and WHINE but we never told her where we got the items for. That was until one of our friend said “Lolz~ just inspect them~~” Though I’m against anti shields, I would have loved to have one back then. Surf Couture was our special store and every day we’d pop over to see if there was something new.
Fast forward to Friday, I had an offline from Emma Gilmour who asked said she liked reading my blog and wondered if I wanted to blog her new releases. Um, seriously? I’ve never geeked out over a person so much than I have her because I love her stuff hardcore. I watched her store grow for two years now and the thought she read Shane and I’s blog and she liked it??? Yeah, I fan girled. And I’m fan girling right here. I can’t help it. Surf Couture has been my shit for years now and each release is better than the release before. I know I sound like a nerd/stalker but these are quality clothes here. How do I know these are quality clothes? Well Shane was wearing the Havana Dress for hours with long hair and heels. Yes, SHANE. I should’ve snapped a picture of her.
There are new releases there that a lot of people have been blogging about which I think is a good thing. There’s the Havering Dress, Slouchy Thread Sweater, Belmar Skinny Jeans, Rendezvous Printed and V Necks. The Belmar Skinny jeans do not have any prims, but sock attachments to complete the look. Usually I don’t like skinny jeans without sculpties, but these are so well made. You shouldn’t really hide them with boots even though I did in one picture. They also come in an optional dot print version.
So after a lazy weekend, Shane and I realized we wanted to get this stuff out and show you how awesome Surf Co. is, as if you already didn’t know. Everything comes on all layers which is good if you’d like to create a stunning outfit to piece. I rambled enough, let’s get to the pics.
Or not. I love the Godfather, but I’m Ebeneezer Scrooge, and it is almost Christmas. Ha.
COCO released some kickass Oxfords. Though I’m trying to save (still), they were under 400L, and I fucking love shoes like this. After I’d bought them, I realized I was still wearing the grandpa suspenders from League, and suddenly it occurred to me; I was straight out of 1940′s Sicilian New York. Inspired, I looked far and wide to replicate some Godfather scenes, and on failing, googled a back drop and put it on a box to make it look like I wasn’t in my skybox. Genius. Here’s what I came up with. I had a lot of fun.
It’s that time again. Killer Post time. I’m still budgeting – - trying not to buy anything in SL I don’t actually want or need. In the process, I’m missing out on hairs I could have, clothes I could have and the lindens are slowly building up in my account. Awesome, right? Well, I was bored this morning, and I checked the feeds. Somebody, and I don’t remember who, but I praise you so much for doing it, blogged a drum bag and a guitar bag from Sey. Gasp, I thought to myself. That is something I need. There’ll be no shortage of use for it in my cyber-hand. I’ll take it everywhere with me; to shows, to stores, to parties. Guh, just guh. TPing right on over to the store, I had to wait for it to rez, and as soon as it had, had to hold back on buying the drum one too. I’m a guitar player, though, so it made more sense for me to get that one. They have four different sets for 380L each, 5 textures in each, and also 6 different ways to carry it. (It attaches to your left hand, or your spine.) And I don’t know, it’s awesome.

While Clear is off slaving at work, I’m at home doing nothing. I was originally going to write a witty account of my day. (Down to the two overweight men that walked past me when I was walking my dog, with 6 between them, that said “it’s a fuckin’ springer dog” – clearly.) I decided against it at some point, choosing to ease my headache by wearing a beanie inside the house. Look of the day……
I haven’t been feeling good lately. I lost my mojo a little bit so everything I’ve had in my inventory that’s new has been festering and waiting for the perfect day to come out. Today was that day. There are so many good releases that’s out on the grid that goes with the old things in my inventory that it was a blast to put outfits together (or POTing as Shane likes to call it) and bring you some new interesting looks. But before I get into anything, I want to announce that TODAY IS THE LAST DAY OF THE NAIVE GIRL CONTEST. SEE HERE FOR DETAILS. That’s how you kill two birds with one stone. I hope you guys will enjoy the looks myself, Shane, and our friend Sephia Ellison has put together for you today, and if you’d like to exchange blog links with us, just comment! We love to see your work too!
