What makes an outfit

Hi everybody, I thought for my first posting with LWTCB I would share one of the things I simply LOVE about SL.
Textures. They are  everywhere you look from the grounds under your feet to the sky above. But their most telling  use is the making of clothing.
A good texture/Fabric can make  or  break an  outfit, just like the styling can .
One of my fave Texture places is Texture me True run by Gerard Tunwarm. It's like walking into Aladdin's  cave for me. At the moment he is on a Moroccan odyssey with rich flowing fabrics in velvet and silk encrusted with silver or gold.
Below is his latest offering  which i have applied to a template by Lyrical B!zarre I hope  you Enjoy

Raid your closet blogger challenge, week 2 (I am sooooo behind!)


If you're looking for week 1, it's here. I posted it on Flickr before I decided to revive this blog and figured it wouldn't make sense to post it here now. If you're looking about information about the challenge, it's there. Don't worry about being late, I should done by now, or at least posting my last entry.

I've actually been sorting my inventory a lot lately, and found a bazillion things that I had never even unpacked, for some unknown reason, and even if most of them were outdated system clothes from 2009, there were still a few treasures, like these shoes from Ingenue or that romper dress from G*Field.

Nameless Post


As long as I've been in SL, Evangeline Miles has always been one of my favorite designers, back then, her flawless textures on prims made her one of the best gown makers on the grid. There was a meme on Plurk yesterday about people you find intimidating. Well her. She was. A LOT. Plus she was an admin on the sim where I was roleplaying, which made her nothing short of a goddess to me. 

Then one day, I can't even remember how it happened. She and I talked, and I realised that in RL, her life was pretty parallel to mine, and we have much more in common than I would have ever imagined. I am not intimidated by her anymore, but I feel humbled, every day, to count such an amazing person among my friends.

What I did now know about Evie Miles, though, is that she throws away amazing textures away, because they're not perfect enough for her. That girl is crazy, let me tell you. This time though, it seems she got her sense back and slapped one of these "not good enough" textures on her latest dress, Caoimhe (btw if someone can tell me how to pronounce that, I'll be very happy)

The result, a gorgeous Nameless dress, free for her group members, and only 100l$ for everyone else. If you've never bought anything from Evie's Closet, now's the good time to start.

The hair, you might have noticed, is not my usual color, but it's a gift and honestly I think I'll end up buy the color pack anyway. I did have a bit of an awkward moment, when, wondering why I didn't receive it, I realised I wasn't in the group. I still have no clue as to how that happened, but that mistake is corrected, and I can be faaaabulous now.

That post is actually all about gifts. Sileny told us the other day that we absolutely should join Secret Love inworld group, because it's going to turn awesome very quick. Well thank you Sil, I now have a gorgeous necklace and matching bracelet to prove your point.

    Return of the Cat.

    Hello lovelies!

    Guess what the cat dragged back in? Me, Rose. Maelenn may not be back at the moment, but I am, and I've decided that I would try and revive this blog. I've invited a bunch of bloggers with different styles, and I hope we'll all make you want to read the blog again.

    I have a new favorite : The Secret Store. I went there the other days to grab the group gift and its a good thing I didn't have more l$ in my SLwallet, because I ended up broke, and I think I would have anyway. Not only her mesh clothes (and shoes!) are absolutely adorable, they're very well made and fit perfectly, even on my mesh body. Be sure to try a demo though, one can never be too careful.
