By now, you all should be aware that as far as showcasing this or that I suck balls. I will always let my love for weird angles and black and white prevail instead of trying to make the perfect advertisement for product x, y or z.

And I don’t have too thank goodness. Most creators do stunning jobs when they make their vendor- and advertisement pictures. Often choosing angles and light that is not easily surpassed. What is left for me is trying to make a half decent picture and the fun of rambling a wee bit about the stuff that you can hardly manage to discern.

And oh boy I do love to ramble. Usually, I fawn over textures and this is no exception, but I will spare you. All stuff you hardly see in the above picture has awesome textures.  For once I will go over everything, starting with the barely visible background.

From Zerkalo, the Garage Door Set. Said garage door and a CCTV camera are available at the Man Cave Event. The texture, a graffiti style, is stunning. As you know I love urban style almost anything and this piece of decor is wonderful. In the flurry of backdrops here is an idea that I can get behind 100%. Because you can use it as just that, a backdrop, but also as an addition to your house, your street, or even as wall art. It comes as always in several options one of them is jam-packed with adult poses.

What I also like so very much about Zerkalo’s releases is the variety. Bold, metal and wood releases are interspersed with romantic, tender beautiful decor items. Of course, the latest release is available at Shiny Shabby and is a wonderful richly covered bed. So do your duty, and hop over to both events and have some fun drooling over them.

Also at Shiny Shabby the latest creation from RKKN. Now here is where you have to pay a bit of attention so wake up.

The Streetwear Outfit has shorts and leggings, a hoodie, cap and facemask and sneakers.

The sneakers are the only thing that specifically made for Maitreya. Meaning that if you choose to wear the rest, you might have to adjust your shape like I did or go nuts with your hud to make parts invisible. But the result regardless which route you take is awesome.

I love this style. I love the shorts and to combine them with way more feminine tops, is something that I absolutely love to do. In the picture, you see the shorts and sneakers paired with a top from COCO. But please, do yourself a favor and hop over to Shiny Shabby and get a good look at them. As always, try a demo to avoid disappointments.

I can be rather short about the quality of all items discussed, I can be short because it seems that everything these designers poop out, is always of the highest quality and will go a long, long way in your wardrobe and decorating needs.

COCO is one of my other ‘secret weapons’. If I ever find a pair of boyfriend jeans like she released a good while back, I’ll never take ‘m off. Same goes for the vest I am wearing, a style that again, I love real-life as well. They are somehow casual, sexy and if worn understated and not defiled with needless accessories, stylish as hell. The trick real-life is that to achieve that they almost have to be tailored unless you have a dream figure that screams for these things.

Now bugger off and do go do your assignments.

Toodles.

One of the things I like so much in SL is experimenting with combinations. Be it throwing together roads, builds, trees etc that perhaps at first glance do not belong together or be it clothes and accessories. Or in this picture, all of the above.

In day to day life, I am a hardcore jeans wearer. I honestly think that a well-chosen pair of preferably vintage jeans should be considered classic wear. Pair these jeans with a well-made pair of shoes, a Hermes scarf, a classic turtleneck, understated makeup and there are not many establishments that will refuse you entrance.

The key really is in my not so honest opinion to go for quality and fit. And if you do not have a perfect figure anymore likes yours truly it can be nothing shy of torture to find those items. Oh, the things we do for fun… Let’s gently steer away from too many real-life musings and go back the wonderful world of Second Life where life often is so much easier.

Experimenting with combinations. It is what I am doing currently with my new build and with the outfit I choose. Shi’s new releases threw me for a loop. Usual Shi’s designs make me want to do close-ups, avant-garde style pictures that focus on one item or even a part of an item. But what is more fun than challenging yourself? And let’s be honest, who would not pair the clogs, who are inspired by traditional Japanese design, with the stunning handbag from Bauhaus Movement? Being me, the jeans had to be thrown in and the rest is as they say history.  And creativity is such a beautiful process. Setting this shot up, it became part of the sim build.

I don’t have to ramble on about quality for all designers who’s stuff you see in the picture. Pretty soon you can feast your eyes on the decor items in the picture on my sim, but I am pretty sure you all have seen these items countless of times.  But…

I would like to ask you to investigate for yourself the clogs from Shi and the handbag from Bauhaus Movement. No, you don’t have to go on a buying spree if these items are not your style, but do yourself a favor and simply go and look at them. The quality and design are really exquisite.

To help you on your way, should you decide to accept this mission (yes I am a hardcore MI fan):
