Stargazing

Snapshot_043I’ve taken to having just as much fun finding the location for an outfit photo to be taken as I do putting the outfit itself together. Strawberry Singh turned me on to The Trace via her blog post yesterday, Bloom. A few clicks later and I’m on Windlight Photography’s Blog — if you’re looking to do some exploring I highly, highly recommend following this blog along with many other travel blogs. I get so jaded sitting alone on my homestead I completely forget about the incredible sims and teraform art there is on the grid. Go! Shoo! Get to exploring!

In a setting like this, I’ll take a bath out in the open, no prob!

 

However, if you’ve chosen to stick around, I don’t blame you – I’ve still got some pretty neat stuff in store. Moving on to today’s outfit.  I was kind of going for an explorer kind of feel… but I was too hooked on this dress from 2Chez that it really just ended up being a kickass outfit to wear when you do whatever you want, because you look that good. So let’s see this outfit up close…

[Unrequited Love]

Snapshot_055So, today’s photo location totally happened on accident. I put this outfit together this morning and got wrapped up in client photoshoots today, so was worried I wasn’t going to get some blog time! Lo and Behold while scouting for new locations I came across Kids Shopping Central! JUBILEE — I was looking for something simple: a well-designed kid-friendly location to do some family shoots and what I got was an EXTREMELY gorgeous sim! I’m in love, they’re going to have to boot me out… I live under the bridge, now.

Go ahead, judge me.

Now onto the outfit. I built today’s outfit around a pair of shoes I saw roll up on my flickr yesterday and HAD TO HAVE! JD’s (Just Design) new wedged sandals they released are OMG so amazing! I’m going to go back and buy up every color, I’m wearing these all summer! Absolutely my favorite thing about these shoes, aside from how lovely they are, is JD’s skin perfect system:

They’ve got a catalog of almost all the major skin lines and the style and tone to boot! I just had to find mine, click apply and 5 seconds later…. they matched PERFECTLY! The following image below is straight outta second life with no manipulation:

Snapshot_056Granted, you can kinda see where shoe meets leg… but only because you’re looking for it. For all intents and purposes this system is FLAWLESS and I’d love to see this catch on with more designers in-world. Five Stars JD! I paired the outfit with some darling high-waist boho shorts from FA Creations and Maitreya’s Athena sweater. Top it off with Truth’s new Light Brown Delta hair and voila! Perfecto!
