Un Amour De Pomme De Terre

Yesterday, before I went to sleep I was remembering old cartoons I used to watch when I was a child, heidi being so old and one of them.  Not sure any of you remember it, or saw it when you were kids but that inspired me to put this outfit together. Heidi wasn’t a redhead and lol, I don’t plan to look 5 years old here, but I had little images in mind like praries, wood shacks, quilts, big chunky socks and wedges and honey colors, trying to make  a sweet look, quirky and discretely odd. The odd detail being in the leopard bra peeking and contrasting with the checkered dress and other patterns. I guess I wanted a look that expressed an artsy girl’s, carefree spirit, inspired by folklore-ish culture. Dunno if I’m expressing myself clearly, but I can never explain how I see clothes anyways. pft. I am going redhead for a few days and I’m loving it. Muahs, Happy saturday. ❤ Uma

Fur is NOT dead!

At least, not faux fur! The most faux it could be..ehe!I don’t wear (real) fur in rl, besides leather jackets and..well, pretty much all things leather. Pft, blame me…But again here’s the controversy, I cannot say it doesn’t look just amazing. Hell I’d be an hipocrit if I said so. However, I choose not to wear it. I’m not one of those who go around fashion shows with ‘anti-fur’ signs throwing eggs at people who wear it, but I do judge people who do wear it, who sport their furrilicious coats, stoles..and what not. See, for a well rounded, educated, wise, SANE, person, this is not portrait or a sign of status but a sign of ignorance and blatant stupidity. That’s how I see it. I would just love to see someone replic a real fur (in rl) as well as in second life. AHA! So on to what I mean to say…Nicky Ree‘s ‘Avana fur coat‘ is..one of the most amazing pieces I’ve seen/worn in sl so far. OMGAH! Not only is just..well, amazing (can’t think of other words) it works perfectly with my ao, and hell, if it didn’t I would totally make it work. I’ve decided to make a, rather simple look, and I had planned to make more, but I was so so so so lazy.  I might come back with different looks with this jacket, and please bear, with me, I absolutely love it! So I will do so, in the next days to come…nomnomnom! ❤ Uma

Pink, Green, Orange and love.

I’ve had a lot to think about, I’m still in a weird mood and I’m still trying to give sl a break. Mostly socially, which only means less time spent in sl and the time I’m on, focused on what I like doing. Don’t know if this phase is a acumulation of several feelings/situations I haven’t had the cold blood to step back or not get influenced by, however I’m still in love with clothes!..and I’m still in awe by the support, the kind words and the people that are worth, coming back, blogging, sharing thoughts with, and worth of my attention aswell. I’ve said in reply to friends words that lately all I take joy and pleasure of is, with no doubt, blogging. So that’s where all my thoughts will be directed to. I’m 3 days away from being 2 years old, and omg, maybe this is just a nostalgic phase I’m going through? Buh. As I think back and evaluate my sl experience, all I can be thankful for is the people I’ve met, the friends I’ve made and the experience of starting a blog and the (positive) feedback I’ve received from everyone. My last post, wasn’t a goodbye one, by no means I’ll give up doing what I love the most. I was just sharing my thoughts on how I feel about lot of things that have been going on, how the negativity/shallowness I see around affects me in a serious level. However I’ve always been able to not care/think or even make an effort to know about (or participate) in drama/be affected by it, so that’s what I’ll try to do again, from now on. As I’m turning ‘2 years old’ my blog is turning one year old. I started blogging on june 13th (2008) and OMG, as I look back it feels like it was yesterday. So bear with me (and my moods)  I plan on celebrating a year of blogging experience in a (hopefully) happy way/mood. With all this in mind and focusing on what I really *heart* doing, let me spam you a little bit. These outfits are a tribute to niniko vs BomBon (which I planned on putting together some time ago) and a special thank you to Sayuri for her kindness by sending me the (amazingly beautiful) goldfish dresses, which I couldn’t resist not wearing. Much ❤ Uma

Shopping list!!!

Haiii!!! ^^ So today I spent part of my afternoon rl shopping. Groceries and crap and yes, while I’m not organized in most anything in my life (both of them) I tend to make shopping lists. So I don’t buy more than I should or don’t get distracted with what I shouldn’t. Anyways, I decided to dress accordingly in sl. Loose is the word. Loose shirt, loose pants, cute updo and an ecologic ride ;). So my pixels decided to go on a shopping stroll and..to my surprise I found these awwwwwwwwwwwwwesoooooooome things I wanted to share with you. *insert I haven’t seen this before so if you have don’t need to tell me, give me the satisfaction of thinking I found it by myself* Anyways, lol, you need to check K&D shop, I almost couldn’t resist any of the rides there. I bought the stylish shopping cart (which you see in pics below) and the Salamander. Whats cute about these is that both come with vehicles which you can ride, and while the shopping cart comes with a shopping basket (and a cute fall animation and groceries thrown everywhere+cart you can push around) the salamander comes with ‘folded’ ride backpack. OMG, how cute are these?..I’m a sucker for any kind of weird/cute ride and you definitely need to check this store out. The hair is DEJAVU’S new hair, (arigatou dango ❤ u) will be released today and its the cutest updo. You might need to edit it a bit, all you big heads out there (me included) but it’s an absolute keeper. ❤ Uma

*AVANTMELON*

Haiiiii!…ok, today  I had the pleasure to meet Erzebeth Breslauer, the owner of *AVANTMELON*,  a store I wouldn’t have known if it wasn’t for her sweet knock on my door. The store just opened a few days ago, and it’s filled with kawaiiness. XD!..and I’m here to show you some. All things are hand drawn by Erze and all you can find there is priced under 100 lindonis (my loving name for our precious lindens) and pretty colorful! My favorite pieces are definately the flower shorts and shamrock jackets! There’s also one pair of the flower shorts (in blue) for free and they’re totally worth it. tp HERE and check out for yourself! ❤ Uma

Dunk it.

Haiiii!! So yesterday, inspired by this beyoncé, put a ‘rang’ on it fever we decided to check some hiphop (sl) clubs, which consequently made me want to wear my ‘diana’ skin today and put this outfit together! It’s not something I’m used to wear but these amazzzzzzzzing akeyo ‘cora’ sneakers (which btw are totally color change, from laces to sidepatch and ‘nose’) and new En Svale denim jacket inspired me to do a more colorful, street like (with a slightly retro feel) look. Challenging though! It’s funny, because I really don’t like denim jackets in rl (unless they’re tight fitting and with an edgy cut)  probably because it reminds me of when I was a teen and if I look back (as probably most of us) at those pictures not only I can’t stop laughing it also scares the crap out of me. However, I loveeeeeeeeeee this en svale jacket and in sl it couldn’tbe cuter!! ❤ ❤ Uma

Pocky <3

Haiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! lol. XD Lately I’ve been obsessed with ‘pocky’ talk. I forgot about it (because it’s hard to find where I live) when I saw elka’s flickr. I’m sure you know it, it’s a japanese ‘snack food’ (little biscuit sticks dipped in choc) and highly addictive!. In Portugal it’s not easy to find, there’s a fairly similar to pocky called ‘Mikado’ but it’s not the same.  SO, I recently found a store downtown that sells REAL POCKY!..and omg, not only I bought like 5 packs (rl) I also found that I had it in my invo. Ah, so that was the trigger to make me start doing pocky tshirts today and come back to blogging! For some reason I love this outfit, its not often that I mix red and blue (unless I go navy like mood) and not often that I blog an outfit made of things I haven’t bought ‘recently’. I have also decided I should stop being lazy and ‘try’ to make some accessories and play with sculpties (not that I’m good at it) and hopefully will have some headbands and stuffs (because omg, I’m addicted to hair accessories) in the future! ❤ Uma muahs!
