I know you all want to give me something to do this weekend, and since I'm a bit afraid to ask any of my friends for adjectives (they try to come up with the hardest ones possible) I'm asking all of you dear readers (which could possibly be like 5 people) for a fun adjective to build an outfit on.
Now, let's do go with anything like "tasty, sticky, delicious, etc". Because as fun as those would be, it really hurts my brain to think that "outside of the box". So, give me an adjective to describe fashion.
Now, I know what you're thinking. "Why don't you just give yourself a freaking adjective and not make me have to think of one?" The answer is simple, I wouldn't actually do it unless someone else challenged me to do it. I also would spend the weekend whining to Luna about being bored. So, Luna begs of you, give me something to do.
Happy Friday, you crazy kids!

I love a challenge. I was trying to decide what to wear Saturday, and IM'ed Luna for a little challenge. I told her to give me an adjective and I would create a look around it. I wasn't expecting her to give me the adjective she gave me. She responds, without hesitation, "Plaid." Plaid? Really? You just said Plaid? She responds that it was the first thing that popped in her head. I grumbled. That was going to be HARD. Immediately, I thought about a short little plaid skirt, which I found, and will blog at a later time. But, I kept being drawn back to the Plaid Peacoat by Miw. I love the fact that you get 6 different colors, all in one. And I adore the detailing. To me, it just looks like a warm wool jacket. Combined with a pair of jeans, and my favorite booties from Insolence, it's the perfect look for everyday. I threw on a white tank, just to break it up and lighten the look a bit.

Included with each skin purchase are free eyes and some eyebrow sample shapes. The eyebrows and lip colors can be changed in appearance mode. Also, in appearance mode, as an added bonus lip gloss can be easily added or removed. For this review, I decided not to edit the lip or brow. Surely its a great feature allowing the skin to be versatile to match any wardrobe.

Today's look started with the Satin Ruffle Top from Muism. I absolutely fell in love with it standing in the store, but it sat in my inventory for weeks. I finally thought I'd create an outfit that just screams spring! I love little black tuxedo shorts with heels, and Storm Schmooz make some of the most amazing heels in SL.

When I arrived, nearly half the boxes were gone from underneath the three different outfits. Each sign had (what I assumed) 10 boxes to start. I picked the black/white outfit in the middle. At first, I hesitiated since the price was higher than I expected for an outfit I honestly won't wear each piece. The box is packed with chooses and layers! Each outfit had four different styles: nonprim long skirt, assym skirt, long prim skirt, and a short skirt (shown). I choose this one since I tend to wear jeans more and more ... this top would look best and the most versatile.
Overall, I do enjoy this outfit but the price - not so much.

I love the look of this style not only due to the "uniqueness" but its so great for snaps. Now, with that being said, I don't see many walking around the grid with this hairstyle. Maybe if you were a mime in a windtunnel it would good ... but for me in my normal routine not the first choice. Who really wants to have that "fresh out of the windtunnel" look? Right?
You and your bunnie luva can kiss it, Pheobe!
Like my manties?! They are from Hang The DJ! and called "Days of The Week Fundies!". When I saw these, I just had to get them! Its a terrificly priced phat pack with undies in the pants and undies layers. Jhuzen Ketsugo, the owner and designer behind Hang The DJ!, is a super fab fashion chica herself and now is dabbling in her own fashion line. We wish her all the bestest!!
