These Boots are Made for Walking

Hello readers! I hope you’ve all had wonderful holidays if you celebrated and enjoyed time with loved ones. Today I am doing something a little different. Pictured below is NOT Safe For Work. In the past I have not felt comfortable sharing pieces like this but I have been blessed with the support of good friends and family and feel like exploring this side a little bit. Changes in my Review Policy and About pages will reflect this. This post is dedicated to my friend Myst, creator of Mishmash Fusion. Take the jump below if you feel like it!

Better Than My Favorite Sweater

Better Than My Favorite Sweater

Blue jeans, white shirt
Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
It was like, James Dean, for sure
You’re so fresh to death and sick as ca-cancer
You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop
But you fit me better than my favourite sweater, and I know
That love is mean, and love hurts
But I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby!

-Blue Jeans Lana Del Rey

One of my favorite shops is called Blueberry. A friend of mine introduced me to her clothing (thank you Sarah!) after I’d bought my Maitreya Lara body and I am HOOKED! She recently had a 50% sale on two of her newer items; leather pants and a cute dress. I had already purchased a pair of the leather pants in purple (because that’s my favorite color lol) but with a 50% sale…How can a girl resist? This time I got them in Midnight. Rene is a sexy cute set of leather pants that is super flattering for any shape. My butt has never looked better. Lol I love that Blueberry includes fitted versions for the major mesh body types like Maitreya, all Belleza bodies, and Slink. These pants also include a tucked in version (all sizes and fitted meshes as well) for wearing with boots. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a HUD to change the color of the metal buttons. All of this for a normal price of 199L per color. That’s 20 different sizes and a HUD. I’d say that is a steal. The top I’m wearing is the current group gift at Bluberry and also comes with all sizes and fitted meshes along with a HUD with several color options. Both the pants and top are so cute and well made, which is something that comes as no surprise. Every piece Blueberry does is made with love and care.

The jacket I’m wearing is from the Birdy Collective from Foxes. It is currently at Collabor88 but not for much longer. There are four plain colors and four jackets with a print on the back which are designed to go with a dress that is also available in several colors at Collabor88. Included are all standard sizes and fitted mesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. An optional hood comes with the jacket in various sizes and fitted mesh. I love the fit of this jacket so much I probably won’t be taking it off any time soon. Get yours at Collabor88 while you can and the many other lovely goodies.

In My Bones

In My Bones

I’m breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa
I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age

Every month, the designers at We ❤ RP astound me with their creativity and craftsmanship. I have a few favorite designers but this fair/market is a wonderful assembly of talented creators that I love to discover. Several pieces from this outfit are from this round of We ❤ RP. Most are current or past We ❤ RP contributors. It’s such an amazing gathering of talent that there just is not enough room in one blog to praise them all; so I will just have to highlight a few. 🙂

I will confess that the first item I bought from this month’s fair was…ehem… the owl/cat/gryphon you see sitting on my shoulder. In fact, I bought two color versions because they are simply too adorable to pass up and I may have to buy another one. These cute blended creatures are animated and come with both a wearable shoulder pet AND a rezzable version. Fair warning, you will not be able to quit cooing over their animations.

My shirt/romper/thing (what would you call it? o.o) is a lovely piece by Azuchi. It comes with several sizes including fitted for some mesh bodies e.g. Maitreya and Belleza. The textures on this piece are exquisite and realistic; the material looks just like leather. I am looking forward to seeing what else I can find from them. Only issue I had was some of my thigh peek through when I move from the fabric not lining up with my alpha slices, but nothing too revealing or noticeable. I’m sure with a small shape mod it would be fixed on my end.

Wings have always been fun for me to play with because one of my roleplay characters is half Fae. Any wings I find that are unique become a must have and Material Squirrel designed a set that appeals to my darker side. A light colored set is also available. The wings are mesh, come with a color change hud, and a hud that allows the user to change size, movement on/off, movement speed, and to hide them. I love that I can make them hide upon landing and the durability. They are not flexy wings. They are not flimsy wings. These wings exude power and strength only achieved through hard work and lots of flying. Well done Material Squirrel.

Lastly, I would like to mention the boots which are a past We ❤ RP item made by Moon Elixir. You see only the tops of them in the image, but trust me (or check my flickr image here) these boots are kick ass. Thigh high, laced up, and with the option of tassels, these boots are rock solid and perfect for any adventure one may embark on. As always with Moon Elixir, these boots come with a Hud with lots of color and metal options for the smaller pieces. With lots of color choices, you’re sure to find a pair you’ll love.

One more week of this month’s We ❤ RP. Grab the deals while you can.
