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

Overpowered

Hey everyone!..So as you will see (down below) I’m lately more inspired to, mix and match ‘old’ stuff with some new, but mainly, old. In sl old for me means treasured. Treasured because there are some pieces I am still in love to this day and others no longer available. I don’t wear them as much as I should so, letting them see the ‘light of day’ a little, does feel good.  Like ‘old’ paper couture stuff or creamshop or Artilleri (which will never go out of style) or Grandma!. I was talking to my friend Amika jewell the other day, Grandma is in the present a furniture store but in the past, Hanae Nishi (owner of grandma!) used to own a really awesome vintage inspired clothes store and I really, really miss it. I am happy to own mostly everything from there and I wish Hanae Nishi could re-launch her clothing line, but, as far as I know it’s gone. For now I hope! Anyway, here’s 3 different looks, made out of awesomeness with digged from old mama’s chest, I hope you like. ❤ Uma

Listening to….THIS

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

Teased up!

Haiiii!! I told you I’d come back again today. So..here I ams! First things first, lamb bellic has ‘returned’ and this time with a new hair. Teased up is somewhat, a hatless version of Mister Sister. If you liked Mister Sister, you will definately like this one. So sweet, thank you for spoiling me lamb! ❤ This was basically the reason why I’ve put this outfit together. There’s also a  couple of things I really love about this outfit, old things I had in invo mixed with a couple of new ones. The jacket is an ‘old’ hunt freebie from []::Tuli::[] and the skirt is part of Polina’s recent release, the ‘summer dress’, (thank you Poli) and the shirt Pink Outfitter’s latest creation. I think all things worked pretty well together, and my favourite details are an old Chapeau Tres Mignon brooch I’ve attached to left ear, so I could use it as a head accessory and Fishy’s strawberry brooch (part of Bon bon top in gold). Those are the pieces that tie everything together. Also, I could’nt NOT talk about chocolat yifu’s super awesomely cute flats. I ❤ them!!! So, If you haven’t been in untone quilt lately, do check them out. Now..the books, (thank you Vasean for telling me about the gifts <3)lol, I love random things, random attachments, this is a super kawaii one, not-to-be-missed, free at Tekuteku store (make sure you get it ..and also, check the new hair!! it was too much for me to show you in this post). MUAHS ❤ Uma
