"Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile." ~William Cullen Bryant
Whew just before Luna posts another I'm zipping in with my Khaki entry for the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge!  If you want to know more about this challenge click here HERE!

It also give me a chance to do a two for one post while I am catching up!  Check out this great mesh release from Raspberry Aristocrat!  The tank & skirt here are both named "Sweet" and they really are!  They both also come in 8 really great colors; bright, cheerful, and fun!  I'm wearing ecru here because it looks Khaki to me!  You should zip on over to her store and check out the others though!  Can't wait to see the next mesh release from Raspberry Aristocrat!

Also check out these fun new mesh boots from Slink named Astrid.  These are extremely well done and I adore them!  Best part is that the straps and the base of these boots can be color changed into 16 colors... and when you start to combine those colors..… Read the rest

Thoughts about Truth (Hair that is)


Mister Truth has released 3 new styles that all have the same name, so meet Agnes 1, 2, and 3!  These are all very full styles with braids and bangs that are different.  I think it's great that he chose to do that this week because it gives me a chance to make a point that I've been trying to make off and on in assorted Plurks for awhile now.  People have been complaining in various blogs and plurks that his hair often seems to look the same, or is similar to other styles he has released.

Take a good look at my face in these pictures... notice how the shape seems to change with the styles.  I didn't move my camera... I didn't even alter the hair... yet my face seem to change with each one of these.  It's the sort of difference that makes a hair cut good or bad in our off second life lives.  Some times these subtle changes make me prefer one style over an other because it fits how I perceive myself better.  So what many of you see as a negative can be a good thing to another person.… Read the rest

Rose’s Picks at the Jewelry Fair Post Five


Today I plan on showing you my picks from the over the top, the unique, and the fantasy type items that I got at the fair this year.

First up is the over the top!  Here we have two of the items from Ganked!  I noticed that the whole booth was filled with bold jewelry statements, pieces that will get you noticed for sure!  This isn't your usual chunky jewelry though, there is some real artistic design behind them.

Check out this fabulous set from Violator!  Such wow factors from this store... real couture eye popping designs.  Their booth is a real must see for anyone who has not come across them before!  This set has me wanting to create some real fashionista art!


Up next we have some of the unique items!  Check out this wonderful hat from CentoPallini!  I just HAD to have it!  Yes I bought a hat at the Jewelry Fair what can I say?  I tossed in these darling earrings that I got from them too just to show them off!

Next up is Hatpins...… Read the rest

Rose’s Picks at the Jewelry Fair Post Four

  There was so much good casual jewelry at the fair this year!  I have selected one each of several designers who caught my eye this round.  So here we go frooooom left to right the order chosen by how well I could paste these together! :D
How adorable is this set from je suis? It's called Nocturne and comes with a ring as well!  Very well crafted and charming! Fell in love with this as soon as I saw it!
Here we have a delicate and finely crafted Chinese symbol of love from Lucifer's Heart they had several other symbols and much much more!
I know it might be hard to see but I adore these earrings from Real Glamour so much work had to go into these!  So much fun!

This set called Love Notes from Plastic Acid caught my attention too!  Fun .. flirty... and just a bit rock and roll!

First up on the bottom row is a necklace I purchased from a Plurkie pal who is behind LacieCakes! In case you can't read what it says... My eyes are up here... *grins*.  She always makes such fun and creative things!… Read the rest

Rose’s Picks at the Jewelry Fair Post Three


Sorry to have been quiet a few days while I dealt with some stuff in my offline life... but the show must go on yes?  Yes!

Today I'm bring to you some new to me designers from the Jewelry Fair who excelled at dressy sets of pretties for us all! 

I'm really glad that I discovered Purple Moon not only are they creative but they were affordable!  The sets I saw there had flair & style and really caught my attention!  Shown here are the Lily set in gold and white, and the Noble Choker in Silver.  They both came in many colors and styles it was hard to chose just one!

WTG was another Designer who definitely caught my attention! I had a hard time deciding what to buy and finally settled on the J:D-02 choker which I thought was just so lovely.  I'm also showing you the fab Fragrance-G set that she gave me.  The best part of this set is that both the gems and metals can be changed to suit you!

I want to mention a couple others.... this Kimmera Collection (I'm not showing all the pieces there are more!) from J&W Jewelers is amazing to look at!  Such intricate detailing!  I need to make time to stop by their main store sometime soon!… Read the rest

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Brick Red


Week 46 of the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge and it's another red color! Yikes!  As many of you know I don't really do red colors and don't have all that many in my inventory.  As I sat there trying to think of what I'd want to wear I unexpectedly received a gift from Neferia Abel of L'Abel!  This lovely dress called Nona is from her new Fall Collection and it was red! Yay!  So I threw on this new jewelry set from WTG called Fragrance and I was good to go!  More about both of these items in later posts!

The Amazing Jewelry Fair!

 
 Silly Rose is Over Dressed for the Fair!
I was unlucky and came down with a cold on Thursday and I'm just now really getting myself back up and into the swing of things.  With the promptings of some others I've decided to go ahead with what I had planned for my post even if it is several days late!
The 2011 Jewelry Fair covering four sims is up and going!   Each sim has it's own elemental theme to it and are amazing must see builds even if shopping for jewels is not your thing!  The fair which opened on the 16th runs through to the 25th so you have plenty of time to get there and look around!  I'll make things easy for you and give you ports to each of them!
AirWaterEarthFire
I had a great time checking everything out and I discovered several stores that I hadn't seen before!  I really fell in love with a few of them... in fact I was shopping at one just this morning!  I shall be doing a ton of posts so stay tuned!  
Don't forget to mind your manners at the fair!  Lets do a quick review...… Read the rest

Not-a-Meme! The restart of an old blog challange…

Years ago my friend Dolmere started the Not-a-Meme blog challenge... and I'd like to start it back up again with your help!

The Not-a-Meme blog challenge has a simple premise and will be able to cut across the lines that tend to divide us Second Life bloggers ...  because it can cover anything under the sun... silly or serious!

Once a week someone who is part of this (meaning anyone who joins in and has fun with us!) will be picked by me to ask a question... or submit an idea. 

Examples:  When I was picked before I asked if manners were important to you in Second Life.  (I went and found the actual link yay check it out HERE) Another time someone else said we should do something nice for someone and then talk about it.  There were all sorts of questions and it went on for months.

Everyone who wants to join the fun then replies and posts the link...  not to my blog but to the person who's turn it was that week.  Anyone who has a blog is welcome to join in...… Read the rest

Quick mention that my skin from Mango, Mango! is part of the Fashionably Late sale and was only 75L!  Need a TP?  Here you go! Yes... yes I confess I sort of whimped out on the skin for this but I wanted to wear it... so there! =P

*Rose is rather shocked atm because this post means she is caught up wheeeee!  Stay tuned though she is about to start rocking the boat with a challenge of her own!  As always feel free to comment/IM/Plurk her with your thoughts on today's post!*

Truthy Newness


Another one of those quicky posts so that I can show off the latest releases from Truth!  These are both a sort of two for one deal as you get one version with the color change ribbons and one with out.  The style on top is Annalise and the other is Abigail.  What I particularly like with these hairdos is how the hair falls... seems so realistic to me!  The back of Annalise could be my own hair from the looks of it!  Fun and quirky styles both of them!

Easy Sunday Morning Post


Just a fun quick post this Sunday Morning... yesterday while wandering the feeds I saw this dress as part of one weekend sale or another and it caught my attention!  So of course I went and bought it!  This is a pre-release from Aura called Inked Mini seen here in Electric Blue; there were several other color combos to choose from although to be honest I can't remember the number.  I'm thinking eight or ten but don't quote me on it!

I decided to pair it up with some fab new mesh boots from TenFifteen!  These are called Kimberly and they come in eight colors... in 4 sizes each!  Pretty sure that MOST people can be fitted into at least one of those sizes.   You know me I love good boots... make sure you go give them a whirl.

Another thing I need to point out is my fun jewelry from Dear Alice called Over the Rainbow!  This set had the whole fun an fancy free feel I was going for so I had to use it.  You can't see them but there are matching earrings as well.  However this a Jewelry Fair preview so you will just have to wait to go get it!… Read the rest

What?!? You think looking this good is cheap?


What?!?  You think looking this good is cheap?  How does a girl like me get into a situation like this?  Being a slave to fashion will do it to you!

Actually this is my first foray into mesh fashion.... mesh Is AWESOME!  It moves you with your body... it's all that I dreamed flexy prims would be years ago and it's finally here!  I have seen pictures of someone kneeling in a long dress and it actually bends!  These boots I have on do the same thing! I do believe I'm gonna love me some mesh prims!

So lets talk fashion!  This is the new meshylicious (Is that a word?  Is it now?) dress is from TenFifteen is called Natalia and comes in nine colors!  The creative forces behind TenFifteen have been leading the way in Second Life for years... no seriously they have and I've been around to watch them do it.  This is a bit more sexy then I am used to but hey a girl has to show off some times!  You should try dancing in this dress trust me!… Read the rest
