Beachin' outfit @ Designer Showcase

 Summer means shorts and crop tops. This month's offering from Purple Moon @ Designer Showcase is well-textured and unique in its styling. There is a lot of detail in the stitching along each edge and in the embroidered design on shorts and top. The strapwork bib on the top is extremely well done. Shown here in white and in blue. I paired it with the wonderful Marith Strappy Heels from KC for a casual but pulled together look.

Robbie Roo's Pride

Hidden away in Provincetown is a unimposing little shop called Robbie Roo's Whatchamagoos
(well... it's not really hidden, it's right on the corner of the board walk and the courtyard, but work with me here, we're going for atmosphere...)


Here you will find the unique, the beautiful and the totally different world of gay men's fashion for those who are ready to move beyond muscle shirts and cargo pants.
Robbie specializes in colors, bright prints and unusual designs. His pieces fit well and are wonderfully textured. He always includes free accessories, which really put his outfits a step above anything else being offered.
It's all about having fun and looking GREAT! Check out the demos in the store. Some items are for system bodies. Most releases are available for all kinds of men's bodies.

Robbie also occasionally does outfits for women, mostly because his female fans beg and plead for them.
You'll find the women's versions on MP; filter for "Lady".

SQ1: Not in Kansas Any More

Have you ever noticed that vacation spots aren't always as advertised?
I knew I wasn't in Kansas any more when I walked into the recommended lunch spot and there were hookahs where one would normally find the menu holders. I ordered an iced tea, which arrived steaming hot, but with nice black tea in a glass. Luckily my outfit from D2T which is available now @  Square1 helped me keep my cool till the tour bus was ready to leave again. Travel is enlightening.

More temptations...

Cute nautical outfit, Marcy, from Hilly Haalan comes with Shorts, Tank, Silver bracelet, Purse and Shoes in nautical blue and white. The top also comes in white crochet. Everything you will need to look great at the beach or on that yacht.

Take a trip to the Square1 sim and wander the paths to find some truly nice items. I'm posing on the elemental circle in the center of the sim in a casual top from GL.

New from Robbie Roo

Robbie Roo's Whatchamagoos offers this cute Trianon playsuit and espadrilles for the Alchemy Event, June 1-14. RRW also offers matching shirt and shorts sets for the guys, as well as Canvas short suits for men.
I wore it to visit My Secret Garden. This sim offers a nice display of  art in the park and a not-to-difficult-to-find Secret Garden.


If you manage to find the Secret Garden, you will discover a book lover's paradise with books literally growing on the trees and a number of houses and scenarios depicting various literary motifs.

I found a house constructed of books, which was much nicer than that silly gingerbread one, a three story home that strongly resembled a boot with lots of children in the yard ...




... and I stumbled into a secret meeting inside a barn.

Extra points if you recognize the literary references without having to Google.

One Last Look

I shall end the month of May the same way I started it, by taking one last look at the Fantasy Faire sim.
I took these photos at the Fairelands Junction the last day the sims were available. I wandered among the flowers and smiled at all the wonderful memories the Faire had created for so many people.
The event raised L$ 9,009,893 ($ 34,653) for Relay for Life cancer research.
Thanks to all those who worked so hard and did so much for us!


My outfit is available @ Designer Showcase till May 31.

Square1 Something for the Guys

There are a couple of outfits for the guys at Square1. The one pictured here is a casual outdoor look for the hiker or nature lover from MV Apparel, which comes in several colors with a double shirt, shorts and shoes. There is a female version as well for those intrepid explorers who like to trek the grid as a couple.

The lady's look here is to be found across the book bridge from the main Square @ the Square1 sim.
Don't forget to visit the booths and stores that are off the main Square. There are lots of bargains and gachas to be had.

I'm not using any mesh bodies in today's pictures... just a reminder that it is possible to look good using just what LL gave you, if you wear the right outfit!

Square1 goes to Chicago's

That isn't a typo: not the city of Chicago, but Chicago's club, which has just moved to a new location.
It's a good place to find live music late at night on a Monday, which was just what the dr. ordered for me this week. The new club looks like the old club, just shinier, and I enjoyed dancing to some amazing blues played by JavaJoe MacIntyre. If you like blues, and particularly blues guitar, you should attend one of his shows.

My club look comes from Square1. These styles will be available within easy walking distance @ Square1 till May 21, so get over there and get them!

Designer Showcase Things go better with...

If you grew up in middle America, you know the scene... Saturday afternoon high school basketball game, which your team won in overtime!  Now it's time to get on the bus and drive back home ~ the players, the cheerleaders, the coach and the grouchy old bus driver all exhausted and elated, crammed together on an old yellow school bus, feeling like you are all connected at the heart. Rest stop at a gas station and there was nothing better tasting than that first swallow of Coke!




This outfit from Hilly Haanlan brings back those days in fine style. The hud lets you personalize the top and skirt in your choice of colors or printed in several different sports designs for a total of 20 base styles. Sleeves, collar, cuffs, and waistband can all be colored any way you want them.  I went with the traditional LA Basketball colors.

The classic Coke machine from Zo Awesome is a photo prop with pose, which also serves you an animated can of Coke and would look good in any retro RP scene.
