I’m Back!

Sorry for the blogging hiatus. RL took an unexpectedly busy turn of events and I just haven’t had time or the energy to blog. Really bums me out because I love blogging so much. Anyway, I’m back with tons to catch up on. Almost 2 months of the color challenge and so much more. Anything I should know about that I missed, let me know! Hugs to you all and I should be back to picture posting soon. 🙂

3 AM Fashion

I was unable to sleep last night and so at 3 am I hopped onto SL and took some photos. This is what I came up with. Totally not being intentionally random but at 3 am some of this looked really good. The longer I was up the worse my outfits seemed to get.. at least in my mind. But then again, maybe they’re not so bad. After all, everyone’s worst critic is themselves, right?

I’m a party girl!

I felt like a party was the thing to pull me out of the winter doldrums and it was! I went to a friend’s house and we had a “just because” dinner party with the two of us last night. May not sound like much of a party but it was so much fun! Just what I needed.  For whatever reason my party mood has carried over into the virtual world. I’m all dressed and now to go hit up a party in SL…watch out grid here I come!

I’ve recently realized that one of my new favorite stores is from the owner of one of my old favorite stores no longer in sl.   Silly me for not making the connection or for not reading the store description but either way my day – no my week – has been made!  I almost cried when Mischief left. There were so many fab clothes and if I had had enough money at the time (damn my husband for not lending me his wallet) I absolutely would have bought 1 of everything in that store.

When the owner announced a new project and I looked and looked for it but to no avail. My heart dropped thinking of the possibility that she was simply no longer in-world. But thank you to my dear friend K (you know who you are) for recommending Jane to me last month. I fell in love with the store at first rez. Everything in there is so me! And now, much to my delight I realize (how slow am I?) that I loooooooooove this designer.

If I had the time I would show you everything I have bought from there to date. But for the time being I’ll stick with one thing…..tanks. Jane has wonderfully detailed tank tops in all different styles. I think the intrinsic tanks (which, btw are all free) are great with a favorite pair of jeans. Bum around the house in style.

They also go great with pajama pants.

It’s late now and I’m falling asleep on the pose stand. Be sure to go check out Jane!
