Swinging workers

I’ve had tomboy feeling for a while so I have used jeans and boots and sweaters mostly. Many items are from COCO‘s winter sale.

I have pretty nice collection of boots, cowboy, suede, leather and fur…I can not resist quality boots – or any other shoes. LRD’s Unisex Worker Boots are easy to wear and not too expensive (550L). They also remind my favorite RL boots, Dr Martens 8 eye boots. Mine are almost 10 years old but still good looking.

Unisex Workers come with an easy HUD, one click and you can change the colour. I have V3 and it has 14 colour options, but LRD also has patterned versions.

LeLutka and LentoTähti

This morning there was a quite funny conversation with my Finnish SL-friend. I told I have been incorrectly called Minnu and that name lead us to LeLutka, very well know SL-fashion brand founded by Minnu Palen and one of my all-time-favorites.

And why it was so funny? Because lutka in Finnish means hooker… or it is not so bad as hooker, maybe more like a very generous and liberal woman. LeLutka sounds like classy french-styled hooker!

Sometimes I have thought maybe Minnu Palen is Finnish but I really have no idea. Probably not. There is also other Finnish brand names at SL, like small shop LentoTähti (I think it’s not operating anymore). Almost all Finnish based names have been made by japanese SL-designers. Santa Claus from Finland’s Lapland and The Moomins are popular in Japan and Finnish language may sound exotic and fun.

I tried to search old LentoTähti clothes but I think I have deleted them last spring when I did inventory cleaning. LeLutka skins, hairs and clothes I have many and as a bit hurry I choose first ones. Olja hair looks still fine but has to say that old skin looks…well, messy and old.

  • hair LeLutka Olja BlondeFun
  • skin LeLutka Friday Light (light browns)
  • dress LeLutka Simone sandybrown (just before MESH came…)
  • Mutresse Sneja boots from FaMESHed
  • *ionic* industrial chair v2
  • URBAN ABSTRACT by Elle Crescendo
  • ***ArisAris Vintage decorative radio5 MESH
  • ..::IDC::.. “HOME 2013” Abstract Digital Painting
  • cyberdreams [01] artwork by Andy Burroughs
  • WhatTIMEisIT v1.0 by Giancarlo Corvale

Too cute to be true

There was a time, few years ago, I explored at least 1-2 new places per day. Now  I made a decision:  I must go back on time a little bit and explore more, I have spend too much time at my SL home(s). So, today I finally opened Destinations and found Premium category. Premium Wilderness is a jungle for premium members only. Full of animals and riverboats, water falls, jungle bars, fishing spots and so on, very good place just hang out.

I played with windlight settings, but I do have a problem: my new Firestorm download did not worked out and I am stacked with official viewer. Firestorm has plenty of pre-loaded windlights, official does not, so right now I only have Juicybomb’s studio windlights, bunch of Strawberry’s windlights and one of my own. I had to download more… or get my dear Firestorm working again.

And I also have problem with my poses: I am so damn lazy to search and switch and operate with them. These poses are from Adorkable Ruffle and Boogie packs and maybe one from Bent – I have Bent poses on my Semotion Casual AO HUD.

So frustrating troubling with windlights and poses… because I want to get better pictures and I do think proper lightning and suitable poses are essential for a good SL picture.  Laziness is a horrible thing.

I chose jungle destination also because of Zaara dress from Fameshed.  It is like a bouquet of tropical flowers! This dress has seen almost in every blog and after trying a demo version (then went back and bought, how prudent…) I can totally understand why. The dress is super cute and girly, almost too girly for me, but I just love the pattern, lightness and movement of the dress. Last week I visited shortly at the second hand shop IRL and I almost bought flowery skirt just like Zaara’s dress. I might go back to that shop soon…

Kunglers snake pattern ankle shoes are just gorgeous. I could never wear snake skin leather or high heels like this IRL – 8 cm is my IRL limit for heels – but thank god there’s SL. Sorry virtual snakes.

Sunday blues

Almost all weekend without SL. Yesterday I just had to visit my SL home because of rent due. I played for a while with chairs and poses and my favorite online editor, Pixlr Express. This pic was made with it using focal blur with very high glow boost. The raw pic is very dark and there’s no shadows at all – although I always have shadows on.

I always need to adjust my sitting poses -because I am so petite – but this beautiful giraffe chair had one pose I can use without any adjustment even with a pencil skirt.

I also tested Liv Glam *WINTER-2012*-THE COLLECTION-Freda HUD. It has 18 mesh pieces, here Freda highwaist skirt and Freda cropped jacket (but I was too lazy to find proper shoes so as a fashion blogger I am always struggling just like her). You can mitch and match all pieces together. It is always good to have basic pieces on your inventory – except the ugly truth is I tend to use only newest clothes and forget all others. I just can not delete my old non-mesh clothes – they are my SL history! It means I have over 21 000 items on my inventory…and I have deleted a lot.

Showing legs and raccoon

I just had to change my clothes 😀 I love mini dresses also in RL but I have one rule: if you show legs, you have to worn flat shoes 😀 Ok, not always, but as a common day 😀

My new dress (or tunic?) is from Michami, Daira in Warm and boots from Collabor88, Tee*fy Chloe Slouchy Booties Sand.
