Waning Summer….sounds so melodramatic doesn’t it?
(I was playing with Windlights, can you tell?)
Full size, and more pics – including another version of this awesome shirt (as well as normal windlight settings on my Flickr.)
Sweetest Goodbye is going away at the end of the month, which is too bad because Morphine Janick is a fantastically talented designer. So, grab what you can – really cute stuff at 50% off.

Ever have one of those songs that just gets stuck in your head after reading the name? Yeah… read the title one more time?

Daisies have always been my favorite flower – simple, pretty, all that good stuff – so why wouldn’t I want my clothing to be covered in them?
Funny story… the name of this dress is “Margherita”, which means daisy in Italian (that’s not the funny part). Margherita is also a type of pizza (personal fave and totally delicious, as lots of you probably already know)… so, daisy pizza?

I’m pretty good at getting myself to style an outfit and take pictures, but I’m SO not good at getting those pictures into a blog post! However, I have some really cool stuff to show you – now would be the time to pay attention…
The Plastik is having a Road Trip sale to help pay for gas while Aikea Rieko takes off around the US to check out what there is out there. To say I’m jealous can be qualified as the understatement of the year, but let’s set that aside and just say that I hope she has a wonderful time!!! Here are just a few things you can find from the sale:
Right, so, like I said before – the sale is to pay for gas, and because she’s super awesomely creative and can read my mind when I need more Plastik in my life, there’s a sale on a ton of items (79) right in front at the main landing point for Plastik. Go check it out, and if you want to see some of the other fantastic things on sale – there are more pics on my Flickr.
Italicized items are part of the Road Trip sale.

I’m a huge fan of Aikea Rieko’s designs, so I was naturally super excited to see The Plastik on this week’s 50L Friday’s list! As usual, Aikea is so very generous with a complete outfit, a skin (freckles and no-freckles version), eyes, and elven ears – it’s incredible! There are a couple of hours left to pick this up…so, you can still pick it up!
While I was there, I did notice that the “Black as my Soul” sale was still on. I’ll put up a few pictures of the fantastic finds I picked up a bit later.

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.
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.)
The outfits in these next couple of posts are from Evie’s Closet, designed by Evangeline Miles – one of my absolutely favorite creators in Second Life, and a very nice person as well (from my brief interactions with her). Four of her Relay for Life (RFL) items that were part of either the Clothing Fair or the Fantasy Faire (or both) originally, and are now available in special RFL kiosks in the front of her main store.
One of the things that I like about the outfits from Evie’s Closet is that the work often speaks for itself, unless I just can’t help myself. On the left is Elizabeth, and on the right is Muse II. Okay… I can’t help myself. (You’re welcome to skip my ramblings if you like, the style notes are at the bottom.)
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!
