Monster Weekend (Themeory)

I love monsters – especially cute monsters – so, this week’s Project Themeory was right up my alley.  Below you can find much of what was offered – I had to have it all.

Here I am hiding from the cyclops downstairs at the clubhouse…

Themeory - Monsters

He’s a very nice monster, but it was his turn to be “it” in the game of hide and seek.  And I’ve always thought that plain sight was the best place to hide.  (So does my other friend on the top level of the club – say ‘hi’ to Salamonster… she’s very sweet, terrible dancer.)

Themeory - Monsters

This dino-monster is a great place to hang out.

Now, some of the clothing…

First, what I wore in the above pictures; then that outfit all spruced up.

If you’re going to hang out with monsters, you really ought to dress like one.

I always do like good company.

Super Bargains – Urbanity and GATO

Woo! Super Bargain Saturday certainly had some super bargains today, and you still have a couple hours to go get them today.  Sorry about the short notice again, but I couldn’t get on the computer uninterrupted until late tonight.  (The items will probably be like this until tomorrow morning, but it depends on when the store owner has a chance to get online tomorrow and take the deal down.)

Urbanity has her super cute extreme high heels on sale for 75L – for any color.  Here’s a look I put together with the Rose color – version 1 (more rounded toe).

GATO had two adorable shirts in Keith Haring prints.  I was really excited when I saw the prints earlier today – Haring has always been one of the my favorite artists.  Here is pattern #1 with and without the waist attachment.  (I think I like it a bit better without the attachment.)

Will have more tomorrow!

Electric Blue Friday!

Today is the kind of day that definitely calls for an electric blue end, and (luckily) Whippet and Buck have come to the rescue with one of the bustiers from their 50L Friday fatpack of 7!  This deal is for Friday only, so you have… about 2 hours left to pick it up (sorry for the short notice).

Ta-da!

Update: Pic of all the colors, for your enjoyment!

In order: Alabaster, Antique, Black, Cherry Blossom, Electric, Chocolate, and Cream.

Fifty linden Friday links are all over the feeds today, and a lot of people have shown other awesome things, but I have to say that this bustier fatpack is my favorite of this weeks selections. Might be because I was looking for something bright to cheer up my day, might be because I love the detail that Whippet & Buck put in even the simple things – like the detail in the bustiers – is one of the reasons I keep going back for more.

Pink Shirt Day – Let’s End Bullying

We’ve all had experience with bullies in our lives, which is why it was so great to wander around SL today and find so many people wearing pink to support an end to bullying.

Here’s what I wore today:

Designers have also given out gifts in support of this cause, two of which I have in pictures.

Airedine Poe of Adore & Abhor sent out this t-shirt, which I love and would definitely wear anytime.  I love it because it has a sweet little girl giving you a big hug – and sometimes you just need a hug.  It also reminds us that while we have to give each other the tools to stand up to bullies, we also need to give each other comfort and support.

Faery Sola of Studio Sidhe sent out buttons and a bandana bracelet to show her support as well, and not needing to wear a pink shirt in the process.  Included in the box was a description of her experience with bullying.  Personally, while I really liked the bandana and button, the notecard was a lot more meaningful.  It is very easy to support something, it is much more difficult to share your personal experience. I’m not sure I’m able to share mine without getting worked up over it still/again, so, for now, here’s Faery’s bandana/button combination bracelet.

We have all dealt with bullies in one place or another, and we all know just how difficult they can make already hard situations (like school or work) – and with all of our privacy controls on the internet, they don’t even have to do anything to your face anymore, you don’t even have to know who they are in some cases.  I’ll save my soapbox speech for another time, but, the more we share, and the more responsibility that we take for our own actions, maybe change can happen and bullying won’t be a problem in the future.

Spring Bazaar

This is going to be picture heavy!

Lots of blogs have already covered the Spring Bazaar that started last weekend and ends soon. The Bazaar was put together with a lot of the same designers who did the Valentine’s Bazaar, and everything is under 50L again with an egg hunt (eggs were either 1L or free depending on the vendor). So, a little something for every budget!

I wanted to show some of my favorite finds. (Style notes will be added later!) Every event like this I find new things that I love to add to my inventory because the designers continue to amaze me with not just their creativity, but their attention to detail – something I think is especially important when there isn’t a prim attachment to hide a seam!

Now, I’m not a designer, but I tried to dabble a little in making one or two things only to find that it is better for everyone if I leave it up to the experts! (I’ve always been a better shopper anyway.)

Intrigue Co. has been one of my favorite stores for months, so I’m always excited to see what Katharine McGinnis has designed this time! This adorable Panda Totem shirt was in the hunt egg for 1L. To be honest, it was when I saw that this shirt was available that I dropped everything and went to the Bazaar. Not that I like pandas or anything… okay, I love pandas, and if they’re included in a design, I will definitely be looking twice, if I don’t snatch it up immediately!

She also has a rainbow shirt and drizzly weather shirt for 25L each. So cute, and they look great with jeans for an everyday look.

While I love dressing up and playing around with fashion, I’m always going to be a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl at heart, so I love finding fun t-shirts that remind me of things I had when I was younger, or that just make me smile. TUFT has a few t-shirts out, this Cupcake Cult one is in one of their eggs in the hunt (which really is just looking around, thank goodness!).

Frop! has this Kind of Crazy shirt, which more than a couple of people have pointed out might be a good warning label for me – I have no idea what they’re talking about. *whistles innocently*

This is a Fawn offered their Leda dress in blush at the Bazaar. One of the things I really like about this dress is that the top and “glitch pants” can be worn on their own as well, they’re not confined to being part of a full outfit.

Von Ducky has their Spring Time dress out – shown here in Pink and Green. I like that the dress comes with different ratings versions – PG13, R and X – very versatile. All of the skirt options are sexy, but I like having the option to be less overtly so if that’s how I’m feeling that day. Here the Pink is “R” and the Green is “PG13”. You’ll have to see for yourself what makes the other option rated “X”.

Scribble is another one of my favorite stores in SL.  I love the build of the store, and sim, and how there is a feeling of innocence in so many of the designs.  The April Showers and May Flowers jumpers definitely have that innocence.  They remind me of playtime fun, which we could all use more of in our lives.

Happy Spring! … and go check out the Spring Bazaar before it ends!
