Snapback

So this post is a very long time in the making. As soon as I heard Old Dominion’s song Snapback, I knew I wanted to do a blog post inspired by the look the singer describes. I knew Truth had just released a perfect hair for it. But life happened, and other things got in the way and I only finally, months later, decided it was time. I was gonna do it! Especially after I saw that they got the look SO wrong in the music video (linked at the end), I had to do it.

And I mean, these new(ish) shorts from Neve were perfect. They were inspired by Dirty Dancing, but the cutoff, wornout version just seemed made for this look. And frankly, just being inspired by a movie made them perfect for my new challenge itself (more about that in a moment)!

Snapback

In case you’re wondering, these were the lyrics that inspired this look.

Those stars need to be wished on
Your skin needs to be kissed on
My eyes baby, they’re fixed on you
In your snapback
T-shirt of your favourite rock band
Checking your makeup in my Ray Bans
Breaking hearts like only you can
In your snapback

This also felt like it required a romantic moment, so I grabbed my alt and voila!

Kissing you would hit the spot with me

I’ve got a LOT of these sorts of ideas… so I thought about it, and decided to create a very informal challenge for it, complete with a group called Inspired By Words: Second Life. If you have any pics inspired by words – whether from songs, books, poems, movies – feel free to add them to this group! Just be sure to let us know what inspired you. I am gonna aim to do one of these at least once a month because they’re fun!

Here’s the link to the video. It may not play if you’re outside the US, but you can read the lyrics here. Also, for those who haven’t heard it before, “snapback” is a nickname for that sort of baseball cap because they often involve plastic snaps.

Two For One (NSFW)

Okay, this is one of those oh-so-rare NSFW posts from me. So proceed with caution. This is one of those blogs that’s born out of me shooting a store ad. I loved the sassiness of the look, and I really wanted to blog it. This pose is available at Pose Fair 2016. My sexy foot/leg wraps are from fri.day and are at the current round of Uber, which closes on the 23rd, so hurry over there to grab them!

Meet Marina & Jemma

This is the final weekend of Skin Fair 2014. Sad, right? But the good news is you still have time to hurry over and explore the three fabulous sims worth of skins!

I have two skins to show you in this post. First up is Jemma by Clef De Peau. This was an unknown to me store, but I fell in love with this skin’s haughty and regal face!

Jemma by Clef De Peau

I took advantage of the feeling of this skin, and dressed in ISON’s gorgeous suit that is available at the current round of Collabor88. My hair from Truth, bag from Glam Affair and shoes from fri.day are also all items you’ll find at March’s Collab!

Shopping break

The other skin I want to show you today is Marina by okkbye. What drew me to this skin were the lush, pouty lips. And, well… it reminded me of a certain Vulcan science officer (and no, not Mr. Spock!). So, I decided to RP it up for this look. In case you haven’t heard, E! Eclectic Apparel is closing their inworld store due to RL being too busy. In store items are all marked down to L$75, including the SciFi dress I’m wearing for this post!

Marina by okkbye

This look also gave me an excuse to use the Prosper version of my SLink hands, something I’ve been wanting and waiting to do for quite some time. Also, in the background you can see the gorgeous Alloy house from Pixel Mode that is available at The Garden. I plan to do more detailed pics of this lovely home in the near future, so stay tuned for that!

Live Long

You will find Clef De Peau on Sim 2 and okkbye on Sim 3 at Skin Fair.
