Sunday’s girl

I felt like making a look of the day so I did what any normal SL person would do.. I went shopping!

First I went to Lelutka and got this new hair called Nook and has a wrap around hair scarf with a ton of color options. Then I found myself at Baiastice buying this skirt I saw a few days ago when I was buying the boots that I’m wearing in this post.. and I thought “hmm, what to wear with this..”

First I tried on the Mesh turtleneck they have but it didn’t work so I put on these two sheer tops from Jane and headed over to Erratic cause I needed to cover up my boobs. I settled on this cropped leather jacket which is bad ass and got the Koi tattoo from them to go under my sheer shirts. My jewelry in this post is from Mandala.

These poses are from Geez by Grazia Horwitz and the eyes that I have on are from Ikon.. they are from the new Eternal eyes and they are fantastic. This shade is called Ice. Hope you are having a great weekend!

Some of my favorite blogs and bloggers..

Yesterday, Gogo asked What are your top 10 favorite SL blogs? Honestly I read a lot of blogs but of course we all have our own personal preferences.

This is my list in no particular order and I’ll give a reason for each:

Marleen Vaughan of Coffeesmoke: I love this girl, she is the reason that I even started blogging in SL. She invited me to be a part of Coffeesmoke and I was for almost two years before branching off to my own blog. Her posts are funny, real and non contrived. Her writing is top notch and I’ve laughed out loud many times. Also she started another blog called the Concerned Bloggers Association which is worth a look. She also has a shop called Vaughan’s House of Curiosities which is visionary, quirky and fun.

Caelan Hancroft of Simply Stylish Cae inspires me with her adorable face, curvy body and and well thought out photography. Her outfit combinations are amazing.

Grazia Horwitz of GraziaSL.Com I’ve followed this blog for a long time. Grazia to me is an icon in the SL Fashion community. She makes brilliant and sometimes daring style choices but she is flawless. Everything she picks goes perfectly together.

Strawberry Singh of StrawberrySingh.com Berry is awesome sauce. Just look at her blog and you can see why. She is a goddess, untouchable seemingly at first but actually refreshingly down to earth with a very sweet personality. I love her tutorials and windlights.

Luna Jubilee of Luna Jubilee.com This is another blog that I’ve followed for a long time. She has the amazing windlights for download too, blogger boot camp tutorials, and she started the very successful 52 weeks of color blogger challenge. Luna is a sweet, funny and wonderful person the times I’ve been lucky enough to talk with her or hang out in world and her blog is a reflection of that.

Gogolita of Juicybomb.com I love Gogo’s blog because she writes with integrity and she styles herself in some of the most adorable finds from around SL that I probably would not have been aware of without her. I appreciate her blog because she is honest, colorful and juicy like a fresh peach!

It’s only fashion is a collaboration blog of some of the best bloggers in Second life. My favorite being the ever wise and stylish Cajsa Lilliehook mixed with the fun and down to earth mother earth goddessness of Gidge Uriza.. there are many great bloggers on the It’s only fashion blog but I am partial to the both of them and over all it makes for a diverse blog with many tutorials and solid fashion advice.

Annan Adored of Interstyle Fashion. I don’t know her at all aside from finding her on flickr one day but she could be my baby’s momma.. maybe? Seriously her images are gorgeous and I love the way she puts together a photo. Her windlight settings available for download are great too.

Free*Style: I could not make a list like this without including probably the first second life blog that I’ve ever read. Free*Style is my favorite “freebie” blog and mostly like the first that I can remember reading. This blog helped me through my much more noobish days and this blog to me is top quality and worth a read for anyone from the basic new SL user to even the most advanced as there is always something new to learn.


Vaki Zenovka
of Insert Funny name here: She maybe blogs once or twice a month now but when she does its well worth it. Her images are stunning, evocative and eloquent. Her writing to go along with her images is equally as amazing. A very impressive blog, indeed.

Other blogs that I love: Not Quite Pink by Magenta Devinna whom I simply adore, Bouncer Criss of Pixel Phasion 4 Men has a wonderful Mens blog, Lysie Aristocrat of Barbie Does Sl and Lauren Minuet of Flirting with Fashion are all blogs that I love to read as well.

Now this list has variations here and there but don’t get me wrong I appreciate all of the awesome bloggers in SL but these are ones that I’ve chosen because I’ve either followed them for a long time or because I feel there are currently my favorites. So who are yours?

52 Weeks of Color Round 2 – Champagne

Luna, I’m really going to try this year to keep up with your weekly color challenge. I love the idea of this group and was thrilled that Luna Jubilee has decided to have a round two of her 52 weeks of color. This week’s color is Champagne.

I found this skirt on Grazia Horowitz’s blog from Leverocci. I loved the pleated mesh skirt and the pearl color was a perfect compliment to the Champagne colored mesh silk blouse, newly released from Maitreya.

I’m also wearing one of my favorite new hairs from Truth, called Velvet with these adorable color change bows. My poses in this post are from !Bang by Miss Luna Jubilee. My boots are my old stand-by favorites from Gos.

Happy Birthday, Grazia..

As a noob or someone that did not care about Second Life fashion, or for that matter even really know what it meant to me… and I can’t remember exactly when I found Grazia Horwitz’s on the feeds.. all I knew is that I paid attention.

Her name, her style and just the way that her images sprang off the page for me quickly earned her a place in my mind as someone to take notice of and look up to. She gave me the desire to make my own avatar want to look better and for Second Life to become so much more meaningful than just another place on the internet. You see she made me wish to better want to cultivate a style, to want to take photos and to blog. I think most of all she inspired me and I didn’t even know her.

As I started blogging and finding myself in SL.. I still followed her blog. I even friended her on Plurk.. and began to get to know her a little here and there. I am so glad that I did because honestly, she is one of the very best people that I’ve ever gotten to know in SL. There have been many times when her comfort and warm words mean more to me than I can really express in this post without getting even more choked up than I already am!

Grazia, I just hope you know how much you mean to me. There is no one better suited for my out of hand and sometimes inappropriate with a heart of gold, Brother. You are also a awesome aunt, a sister, a daughter, a sister in law and a friend.

Your friendship is a gift to me, your humor, your compassion, and your style is incomparable and your heart is one of the best hearts that I’ve ever come across in any world. So if ever there is even the smallest bit of doubt on the impact that you make… just know that when I did not even know you.. you were there for me and please know that you mean the world to me.

Thank you,
Love always..
Ami

Mom Jeans, yo..

So, as I’m sure you’ve heard FLF is doomed to be no more. Some people are happy about this and some people are not. I’m inbetween. I guess I can see the need for change and what not but as sad as it is.. sometimes FLF was the best part of my day. I guess it’s the bargain shopper in me but whatever.. this too shall pass.. like I never thought All My Children would be taken off the air after so long.. but boy I was wrong.. So it goes..

So Speaking of Fifty Linden Friday’s last hurrahs I scored a nifty new sweater for fifty linden from Artilerri and paired it with these hot “Milf” jeans, while not 50L but Artilerri is always reasonable priced. I also tried a new skin today which I like by (love) along with some of the layers that you can purchase the skin is very well done and reasonably inexpesnive but high quality none the less.

My poses today are from /Geez/ by the beautiful, elegant and celebrating a birthday on Dec 17th Miss Grazia Horwitz. The flats are from Mon Tissu and the hair is from Elikatira. Happy Friday.

Chaos Ensemble and New Location for MOOD!

Ms. Jori Watler of MOOD has opened her brand new main store and if you have not been. you should go and check it out because it is gorgeous. It’s all sleek and modern but houses gorgeous plants that compliment the build giving it a lush and elegant feel. I love the new build, congrats, Jori! The new location is also home now to GEEZ! Poses and Insufferable Dastard eyes and is Directly across from SLink!

But really go see the build for yourself and pick up this brand new set. The Chaos Ensemble comes with earrings and necklace which is rather intricate and lovely. I’m wearing the indulgence pack which comes with six different metals. If you’ve never seen the hud from MOOD, it’s super easy to pick the metal for your ensemble.

The poses in this photo are from GEEZ who just released brand new poses.. so when you go and check out MOOD be sure to check out these poses by Grazia Horwitz of GEEZ who also took the photos that I have in the frames of this photo. My hair is from Boon and my skin is from Belleza.

Pretty in Pink

The more and more I’ve been playing with color – the more and more I love it. I went to Tres Blah the other day and picked up a few things and am just now getting around to blogging them. The cardigan, the shirt, the jeans and the glasses are all from Tres Blah… and they are so sweet, I think I have a toothache :)

I’m wearing the new Storm sandals from Gos which I am rather impressed with. I think the menu system has the best prim foot skin matching system out there.. and the easiest too. I was rather pleased that it did not take an hour just to match up my feet. Thank you Gos! My poses in this Post are from /Geez/ made by my very talented friend Grazia Horwitz. Her poses are really great and make you look good without trying. I’m rather impressed with them too. My hair is from Elikatira and my necklace is the flight necklace from Mon Tissu. Have a wonderful Sunday!
