May Fair Lady

Untitled-1You’ll have to forgive me the pun… Ever since Miss Berry issued her weekly blogger challenge… I’ve known it was going to be Hepburn. Had to be Hepburn. With the help of the always fabulous Tres Beau Dress Store I was able to throw together a look PDQ I think… not bad! So, naturally, The use of Mayfair in my pun required a visit to my favorite shopping sim.

Snapshot_089I just love going to Mayfair… the architecture is fantastic and they’ve done a beautiful job allowing you to feel like you’re in the high society side of town doing some upscale shopping… and the vendors there do not disappoint! I wandered around for quite a while, striking poses and throwing lights around for the better part of an hour, which drew quite a few onlookers… but that’s okay, I don’t hate the lime light!

Here’s a funny little snippit… so, I’m horrible about accessories. I LOVE them, but I tend to find two or three accessories I love, and just wearing them with everything. Starting a blog showing off outfits I decided….yeah, should probably mix it up a bit. However, my collection of bags is horribly scarce (Working on that!). The above picture is actually Maitreya’s bag from her shoe shop… it’s damn cute, and I have no shame in toting it around! I got that bag today when I was picking up these flip flops:

Would you believe that’s my first pair of flip flops in SL? No joke, there… but it’s ironic as as soon as it stops snowing RL I’m wearing those babies. Love my flip flops. Anyhow… a few more shots before I divulge the details of the outfit. I really love shooting in Mayfair… the urban feel is hard to pull off without a sim getting too laggy – but they do a great job of it! It’s nice to get out of the woods once in while.Snapshot_082 Snapshot_084

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…
