Nissa Nightfire in the Second Life World

happy friday!

5-30-08

Happy Friday (if it is Friday where you are!)~ I had another look planned today, but this one felt a little more “friday” to me 🙂 As my six-year-old was going off to bed last night, she said “are those supposed to show, or did you forget to put some of the parts on?” Maybe it was my new “brittany” hair that inspired my skimpy outfit — in any event, it seemed to suit my mood 🙂

In my quest to get my inventory a little more under control, I was randomly trying on stuff I’ve never worn before, and found this adorable little “martian green” outfit from SYD. (it has some great undies that you can’t see here). To make an outfit of it took more inventory-rummaging, two freebie hunting trips, and a side trip to a sim I’d been meaning to revisit, and some hours later, I was dressed!

This outfit has several great pieces in it, but I would be remiss if I didn’t especially mention these cute little denim shorts (FREE at Escape), and the fabulous tattoo from the wonderfully talented artist, 713 Ayres. I have admired 713’s real-life artwork for a long time (and own a RL piece of it), and in my very early days in SL I wandered into her studio in one of the Caledon sims. I recognized her work immediately and knew that SL must be a very cool place 🙂 When I put this tattoo on, I was reminded that I had been meaning to get back to Axis Mundi, so hopped on over there — and should I run into?? Yes — 713 herself. I admit I was tempted to run the other way (I know — I’m such a nerd that way), but did go over to talk with her, and she was very lovely and friendly. I admit I’m star-struck — but it also occurs to me that this is exactly the kind of thing that could only have happened to me in SL. Very cool in my book 🙂

I Love Love Chic!

chic

Woops! this day has almost gotten away from me! I’ve had this top in my inventory since Love Chic opened, and am just getting to blogging it — sorry, Chic!  I think Chic and I share an appreciation for nice clothes that are on the lower end of the cost spectrum — so I was very excited to see her open her own store! She is offering separates that run L$10-25. This top was, I believe, the first L$10 top offered at the store, and it is very nicely done!  I like the print very much, and the neckline is really lovely — a great frame for neck and face. Chic’s inventory is still smallish, but growing — she’s one to keep an eye on, I think, and I would definitely especially recommend her shop to anyone who is trying to stretch their lindens! (and, if I’m not mistaken, she’s just put another L$10 top!)

Look of the Day

GiGi

One of my new neighbors at Juicy Plaza is the fabulous Giana Paine, of GiGi Couture. Besides being a delightful person to get acquainted with, Giana makes some adorable clothes! And, since its right next door, how could I possibly avoid shopping there?? I was a little skeptical about buying these pants at first — they were labeled low-rise, and I have an personal issue with things that fall too low on my backside (:P) But, it turns out I nothing to fear. They are low-cut, but still give me coverage I can deal with! I ended up loving these pants even more than I thought I would. The texture is just beautiful, with wonderful detailing on the seams, and the skin-tight wrinkles. I’m wearing gray, but they come in a variety of colors.

I paired these with a tremendously cute top from Canimal that I’ve had in my inventory forever, but was perfect for this casual summery look!

Top: Canimal; Harajuku Top
Jeans: GiGi Couture
Shoes: Armidi Gisaci
Earrings & Necklace: Artilleri
