Hanging Out at Home

Sometimes, like when you’re stuck at work, you just want to be home.

Sometimes I don’t even care if I’m sitting around and waiting for someone…
Relaxing in Umber

or if I’m lounging around reading…
Lounging Around in Umber

but my favorite is laying around without a thing to do in the world.
Just about ready for a nap

Is it time to go home yet?

I blame the BBC?

I blame the BBC because they make such darn good television.  Merlin, the TV show, came out on DVD a few weeks ago, and the new episodes are on SciFi SyFy, and I can’t stop putting my avatar in period clothing.

Come to think of it, that might very well explain the trend of some of my posts.

The Nyria dress most reminds me of Merlin.

Anyway, I had posted the above and some of others on my Flickr with Styling credits, but I should point out that the Rowena gowns are 50L each at Evie’s Closet and the Chimera dress is available through a lucky dip (it costs 40L per try) in several colors.

Pics of Rowena are after the cut if you don’t feel like heading over to my Flickr page.

Can’t get you out of my head…RFL (2)

Ever have one of those days when you just can’t get the reason why something is important out of your mind? Even more than usual and not just the overall goal, but the personal reasons why it means something to you? That’s been the past few days for me and Relay for Life, which is why I started taking pictures of the four RFL outfits available from Evie’s Closet that are available in the front of the main store in special vendors. Two of the outfits were posted earlier (Elizabeth and Muse II).

The other two items, Avery and Fable, which each have multiple ways they can be worn.  As I’ve said before, versatility is very important as far as I’m concerned – and not just how parts of a set can be worn with different items.  We all know how to do that, but I really like seeing different options within the same outfit for the same reason I don’t mind seeing a few of the same thing from different blogs on the feeds – I love seeing how the same thing can be made to look strikingly different with just a few alterations.


Avery is shown with all of the included options for the outfit: a ballet skirt, a babydoll skirt, and wings.I feel like a Spring fairy in this outfit, and I love the way it fits.  As with all of Evangeline Miles’ creations, the quality and detail of these designs are phenomenal – especially the flowers on the Avery top attachment and shoes.  My rule of thumb is: if it’s from Evie’s Closet and has flowers included, it needs to be in my inventory.

I love the depth of color in the Fable outfit.  Fable comes with the long skirt and ballet skirts shown, as well as a lingerie option (not shown).  The name was the first thing that attracted me to Fable (because the pictures hadn’t rezzed yet and I was mousing over things to try to see what I needed to get a better look at), and I love how appropriate it is to the outfit.  It looks like something straight out of a storybook, and feels much the same when wandering about in the dress in-world.  I like to add wings to the ballet skirt version a lot of the time for an impromptu fairy outfit, or a key attachment to the back for a wind-up doll look. (I’ll be putting those on Flickr soon.)
