Monochrome

Monochrome 1

If you read our blog for some time you might have noticed that my blog posts are often influenced by my Real Life. I just noticed that by reading back some of my older posts. And even if I try to avoid it somehow bits and pieces pop up anyways. I guess that is my style of writing then. Well todays blog post is no exception, cause I spent the last two days at home, banned from second life, to write an essay for university. And I spent hours nailed on my chair on my working space. And now I log back in SL to show you: a working space.

Apple Fall – or short [AF] – are joining the current September Cycle of FaMESHed and they offer this monochromatic set. It is completely meshed and I absolutely love the patterns and the black and white feel of it. Of course you can purchase every single piece by its own, but i recommend to buy the whole set, cause it just matches perfectly together.

The set contains a table, the zigzag chairs, a fireplace the lamp, pictures and decoration, a sideboard and many other wonderful things also. And I guess you agree by watching the pictures that the texturing of these items is wonderful. It is not too loud and still nails the style perfectly. And by the way – you can see all participating designers for FaMESHed here.

According to the monochromatic topic I chose my todays outfit. The new released two piece suit from Kauna is rich on details – even the buttons are real and meshed. And the Otis Oxford shoes from Miamai in black/grey just match the overall look perfectly.

No doubt that mesh has a great impact on furniture designers also. And there is yet another great furniture store that just opened its gates: { { BSD Designs Studio } } is – right now – a small store but with the potential to grow really big in sl. What I personally like about the designs is on the one hand the quirkyness and on the other hand the functionability of them. My favorite piece is definitely the “tree table”. It is minimalistic but on the other hand splendid with details. Another good example what mesh can do and how it will change how we live in second live. The bonsai tree is also part of the FaMESHed set from [AF]

For todays blogpost I used again the wonderful – also completely meshed – With Aroha (Love) House from Designer Prims I blogged about in my last post.

Countryside

Countryside 1

Welcome Friday and welcome to my blogpost dedicated to the living on the countryside. I found recently some adorable shops and things that I absolutely wanted to share with you and to – hopefully – give you another idea of living in second life. And what I found quite interesting: when I put together the stuff for todays blogpost I found myself in a rather peaceful mood which is rare, cause usually I am hopping from location to location and grabbing things and do all in a rush. Today it was really slowed down and, yeah, relaxing. See – that is the thing the country does to people. Even if it is virtual.

Since I already knew the topic of todays post – because of several items I gathered within the last couple of days – I needed a look for the blog entry. So I got myself this tan tweed jacket from Kauna that comes together with the shirt and the tie. The pack is rather surprising, because you do not get only one shirt and tie but a splendid selection of colors and patterns for the tie. One warning tho: you can not wear the shirt alone because it is crafted for beeing worn under the jacket. But that is fair enough since I did not even expected the shirt in the package. I completed the look with the slim cut denims in used blue from 22769 ~ casual couture and the white sport shoes from GizzA.

Peaceful living: -Hanaya- just released these adorable Bird Feeders in several options (for hanging from a tree, with the old table and with a stand). The birds are included and they tweet – so this alone sets you in the right country mood. The wonderful house is, believe it or not, a gift from [CIRCA] for the Homestuff Hunt – and I strongly recommend getting this one (if you have not the time to do the complete hunt which I also recommend). The Studio Coast Loft ist wonderful build and has two big rooms and also a second floorlet where you i.e. put a bed in. The roof is completely glass and what I love most about the building is that you have two entrances and that the rooms are seperate but also float within each other with holes in the wall.

Virtual homes are not only furniture cluttered in different rooms. The best homes in my opinion have something like a personality and I decorated the Studio Coast Loft to represent of course myself the best. I have already told you about this adorable new shop I found here. BoatHouse have all kind of neat stuff to bring personality in virtual rooms. I got there the Book Stacks and also the potted droopy flowers on the table. The shelfes, the table, the angel ceiling light and the crow chair are from Mysterious Wave – another cute shop I ran into. The designs are kind of quirky, but also lovely. You will find a lof of shelfes there, all with a different theme. And Mysterious Wave is extremely fair priced. So if you need that little extra for your room – you better check the store out. Oh – and the empty flower pots in the first picture are also from this shop and they are just 1 L$!

In the third picture you see what I meant with rooms seperated but floating in each other. You have this breakthru you also can decorate like I did with another angel lamp from Mysterious Wave and the Matriochka creations from :NuDoLu Voyage: I got myself from the Gallery Gift Shop. The cushions on the floor are from [AF] and they look just so real to me. By the way: If you join the [AF] group you can get the fatpack of these cushions for free and they are highly decorative.

And talking about the decorative side of second life: I am a missionary for art in SL. The two paintings you can see in the last picture are from Gabrielle Swindlehurst who just has an exhibition today, 31st August. The opening party will be 12 – 2pm at the Art India Gallery. And of course Gabrielle is selling her art there also. And just to wash all your doubts away: when it comes to fair pricing Gabrielles art is another good exapmle for that. At the Gallery Gift Shop you hardly find a painting from her that is more then 20 L$. So check her exhibition out!

Just a quick one before I vanish again in the libary: FaMeshed is a well known fair brand already (which is spectacular keeping in mind that the 3rd round just opened) but FaMeshed is more or less branded as a womens mesh room. This changed dramatically cause right now some male mesh designer also joined FaMeshed – so it is definitely worth to check the event out lads. Even more since FaMeshed offers a Groupgift – one for the ladies and – well – one for the gents. The gift is this brilliant open silk shirt from Kauna and the group is free to join. I strongly recommend to stay in the group anyways cause I am sure that – with male mesh standard sizing – more and more male mesh designer will join the FaMeshed bunch.

Prince Charming

Prince Charming 1

Don’t you ever, don’t you ever
Stop being dandy, showing me you’re handsome
Prince Charming, Prince Charming
Ridicule is nothing to be scared of

My sister played this song to me when I was about 6 years old – and she was a huge Adam Ant fan. And maybe it is silly, but I forgot about this tune til today when I put together my look. First there was the native skin from [A N A T O M Y] Body Shop with the blue stripe across the face. And when I put on the fantastic Military Jacket from Kauna the song jumped in my brain (and still is staying there, cause I am humming it while I write this entry). All I needed to finish the Adam and the Ants look was some striped pants and thankfully 22769 ~ casual couture gift these mesh capri trousers in the MOH2. And – drumroll please – they are in Standard Sizing! Yes you have heard right: finally mesh standard sizing for men is released! And hopefully this encourages even more designer to create mesh clothing for men. And last but not least: the chucks are also a gift from the MOH2. They belong to a complete outfit from :.Envious.: called Hypnosis.
