Always on the Run

My mama said
That it’s good to be fruitful
But my mama said
Don’t take more than a mouthful
And my mama said
That it’s good to be natural
And my mama said
That it’s good to be factual
But I’m always on the run

[Lenny Kravitz]

Vintage fun with [Gos]

[Gos] having their debut at UBER with a wonderful and sexy peep toe – “Bianca”!

“Zip into Bianca, an alluringΒ variation ofΒ the classic peeptoe platform pump. Bianca features a high stiletto heel embellished by a zipper with circular pull.Β You will be spoilt for choice with Bianca’s 55 colour options.” , [Gos] describe their amazing new release. And I really have to agree. I was not able to snap 55 colors without photo bombing you all but I at least wanted to show some colors beside the black ones I used for the pictures πŸ˜‰

[Gos] – “Bianca” Boutique HUD

Like we know it for all the new releases of [Gos], “Bianca” includes 3 colour HUDs – Boutique, Blueberry, and Metallics. The Boutique HUD includes 21 current, in-season colours perfect for any fashionista, the Blueberry HUD includes 28 colours which coordinate with clothing from Blueberry, and the Metallics HUD include 6 metallics which will have your feet shining. Each HUD also includes 5 sole, 2 metal, and 3 lining options.

 

[Gos] – “Bianca” Metallics HUD

“Bianca” includes fits for Maitreya Lara, Belleza and Slink High feet.

 

When I unpacked my new “Bianca” heels I instantly had an idea, how I wanted them to style. The peep toe did shout ‘pin up’ at me but the cool zipper at the back of the heel said ‘no way you will wear those with a cute dress!’

I wanted to dome rockabilly like style with a cool vintage car at a gas station… and there they were again… the problems if you have something particular in mind and no idea where you find your accessories, clothes or the location.

Ok the look first. To give the heels enough room and to fit the style idea I need some 3/4 long pants – preferred used blue jeans with a tight fit. I do have a ton of jeans, but believe it or not either they are loose fit, bell-bottom style or long down to the ground *grumbles*

The search for that special type of jeans madeΒ  me work through all my denim/jeans pants and I was able to decrease my inventory numbers significantly *snickers*. It is really funny how much stuff yo find if you dig deep enough in your inventory :p

There they are! My “Ronee Boyfriend Jeans from GizzA. Recently GizzA got re-branded to Giz Seorn and I have to post some of her amazing new releases soon, but some things you simply can’t let go πŸ˜‰ Next I first thought for a white shirt, or maybe a white cool sporty blouse but I did not find the right one and so i changed my mind and thought even more towards the cool kids rockabilly side πŸ˜‰ Yes, that looked so much better when I tried the “Kara Vest” from DE Designs. Now I just missed some typical cat eye shaped vintage glasses and since I wanted to go for a gas station for my pictures maybe some fingerless gloves, just in case I want to so some car mechanic pics πŸ˜‰

While I was looking for gas stations, I remembered a little retro looking one at Netherwood. So I just had to rez the cute vintage pickup from Wetcat and ready to shoot! The “Shelby” pickup has some inbuilt poses, but I just used the one on the first picture. for the other pictures I played around with poses from Foxity and ALIUD. I do not know why but vintage or even more Rockabilly shoots always are fun as I love listen to that kind of music while I shoot and edit my pictures to get in to the right mood πŸ˜‰

Speaking of… I would like to close todays post with some lyrics, that I just heard, while I was typing and which belong to one of my favourite rockabilly songs… the little bass guitar solo in there was one of the first I learned when I started to play bass :p

Stray cat strut, I’m a ladies cat
I’m a feline Casanova, hey man that’s that
Get a shoe thrown at me from a mean old man
Get my dinner from a garbage can

Don’t go crossing my path

Enoying my first few days of my Vacation with [sys] ;)

sys 4

Finally my summer holidays are here – YEAH! Yes, teachers desire vacation as much as students *grins*

6 weeks of mot getting up to early and living my true nature as a night owl again :p

It really does feel nice, if you actually can spend time and just roam around instead of just having 2 to 3 hours to create and work in SecondLife. First I started to unpack a lot of boxes, which came too short over the past few weeks because of the final exams at school and all the events that come for the end of year of school.Β  My first box already had something very cool in it… the new “Ride” outfit from [sys]. The whole outfit contains a bra, shirt, shorts and a wrapped shirt around your waist. There are different color combinations available but each one comes with a HUD to customize it a little more. You get 2 options per HUD for each part.

sys 2

While I was opening all those boxes that got to me over the last couple of weeks I found one goodie after another, what means, there will be a lot of posts over the next few days o guess ;). Another amazing item, which perfectly matched the “Ride” outfit from [sys.], was the “Equals” tattoo from White Widow. That awesome art piece covers the arms all the way down with flowers in wonderful shadings. Now certainly I needed some cool glasses, which I found at Haysuriza – A place I really love to go if I need some cool, more urban casual looking glasses ;).

sys 3

The totally awesome hair I am using, certainly comes from one of my favourite hair designers in SL… EMO-tions πŸ˜‰ The “Bernadette” hair does have the perfect touch of smart, urban and casual as well as a lightly rebel look, that I love so much for my more private and urban looking looks πŸ™‚ And now for the jewelry… I know Pris will kill me again – like she always does if I am wearing something “old” that might be not any longer available – but old does not automatically mean bad in my opinion. Sometimes, designs, creations or items do never get old. The look and the skills used to handcrafted them can make them long time goodies. Certainly sometimes weird moving flexies from 2008 might appear old but as well if you take a look at the nowadays designers who use flexible prims again to mix them with new mesh creations… they change in their look and as well improved in their movements. Sometimes it has even a huge plus and adds some kind of uniqueness if you use some of your long time favorites, as they just might add the little extra on your look. Don’t get me wrong I am not saying keep all your old items… but sometimes a few are worth it πŸ˜‰

Saying that, my jewelry for today comes from YS&YS and has quite some years on it’s back in my inventory πŸ˜‰ The “NEW Silver” set with a part flexible earing and the wonderful necklace just made the perfect addition for the look.

In the end I really do believe in a good mixture of new and older items to finalize a look. sometimes those old items even bring back some great memories to a show yu walked, a shooting you had or even from who you got them. With all our run on new releases, do not forget about some things, that might appear old on the first view.. on a second view they can quiet be nice *winks*

LOTD 03/20/2016 – Springtime!

sys + emo-tions 10

Today we had such a wonderful weather – I really got spring feelings!

Driven by those sun touched feelings, I went to my inventory and put on the “Caline” outfit from [sys]. The outfit was made for the Shiny Shabby event and with the shorts and the amazing stylish top, it gives a perfect ‘in between the seasons’ look.

sys + emo-tions 02

The “Caline” outfit comes in the standard sizes as well as fitted for nearly all popular mesh bodies. I was wearing it with my Slink Physique mesh body and it worked perfectly.

For the shoes my decision fell on the “Gypsy Boots” from Wicca’s Wardrobe. With the loosely style and the used look to me they did underline the casual look. The lace in the back and the amazing lines that surround the ankles give a very smart touch and as well underline the casual feeling.

sys + emo-tions 04

For the accessories, I wanted to add a bag. The “Charley” bag of [sys] was one of the cutest bags i got lately and so the choice was not a hard one πŸ™‚ The bag comes in a rigged and unrigged version.

The amazing glasses were made by Haysuriza for the On9 event. With the inbuilt HUD it gives a huge variety of changes you can make to match your look.

sys + emo-tions 07

The cool hair is one of the newer EMO-tions hair. It is called “Carol” and comes with the neat beanie. The HUD gives you a huge variety of colors for the hair and as well some choices for the color of the beanie.

sys + emo-tions 05

The amazing jewelry – collar and bracelet – was made by Elysium. The cool leather paired with metals really gives a cool part to the whole look. The metals are available in gold or silver for the whole “Ichtaca” set.

sys + emo-tions 08

Last but not least, I would like to drag your focus on the incredible detailed tattoo. The “Henna” tattoo from White Widow added the last little bit to the whole style, what I was looking for. As mentioned before I am wearing the Slink Physique mesh body – my favourite one –Β  and the “Henna” tattoo comes for that mesh body as well as for the most common ones.

Since it is still a little bit cold, even if the sun comes out more and more, I decided to wear tights from Izzie’s, which as well come with an applier for the slink body.

Holidays are over – Back to School with GizzA

GizzA 02

The Christmas Holidays were so nice and as always way too short. This week was my first week at work again… Back to school for a new year.

2015 started very nice and I thought it was kinda funny that GizzA released the “‘Emily Dress” right in time for my first day at school again. Even if I am on the “other side” as a teacher… when I put on the “Emily Dress” I got a schoolgirl feeling πŸ˜‰

GizzA 01

The amazing dress comes in several colors of the amazing tartan. The white neck collar and the white wrists you have for all of them.

As it is still very cold I did not wanna go with bare legs and so I pulled out my “LaLun” Tights from Leezu. The sheer version just was perfect πŸ˜‰

The shoes I chose because of the white socks that come together with the pants and just even more gave this school girl vive for me.

What can not be missing for a cute schoolgirl? Exactly the geek glasses :p. Mine are from Haysuriza. I chose the black frame and lenses of the 3 colors for each that are available on the HUD.

The earrings and the amazing long necklace was made by Mandala and my hair stylist for today was Tabata Jewell from Vanity Hair.
