There’s no place like home!

A while ago, I promised to show you more of what has become my favorite ever home in SL. This Lodge from Zacca has such a dreamy quality to it, and yet I can absolutely imagine a home like this existing in the real world. It makes me think of something you’d find in some old little village in the UK. I admit, this house was a challenge for me to decorate. I was fortunate that one of my friends told me about Dysfunctional Dolly Designs, which helped me keep some of the”old world meets new” vibe I wanted. This is the front of the house. My tulips are from Organica and I love how detailed they are.

This next pic features a couple of items from the current round of FaMESHed. The hair from Exile combined with the adorable shoes from LaRoo inspired a look that made me think of Dorothy from The Wizard Of Oz. I love heels with socks, and I fell hard for these shoes. I had a really hard time debating a color, but ultimately went with one of the florals because it’s (nearly) summer and I wanted something summery! The odds are very high you’ll see these shoes again in a darker shade come autumn. My skirt is from DCNY and the top is from Coco, which was a “new to me” store. My look isn’t exactly identical to Dorothy’s, but rather just overall inspired by that.

This ain't Kansas...

Here’s a close up collage, of both the LaRoo shoes and the adorable Greymoon bag I’m holding. There are multiple colors and styles, and they are in a gacha, so you’ll have to try your luck to see which one you get! I’m wearing one of the Rares. It features art from Alice In Wonderland. Given all the recent hoopla over copyright and IP infringement, let me say first hand that the designer is a dear friend who researched thoroughly to make sure she was using art that is no longer under copyright. These bags are so cute, and they fit my mood. Maybe it may seem odd to mix Alice In Wonderland with something sort of Oz-ish, but I’ve been watching a lot of Once Upon A Time recently… so it felt perfectly fine to me!

No Place Like Home

Oh, and since my skin is one the new Pink Fuel Harley skins for The Arcade, I had to take a close up shot of it. I still need to go try to win the rare!

Now, back to the house… you’ve seen the outside. Let me show you inside. This is what you see when you open the front door… this gorgeous window with the build in daybed (complete with poses) that looks out on the courtyard.

My living room is decorated primarily with items from LISP. As always, you can click through on any of these pics and hover for notes on where each item comes from. If you want any specifics, just ask me!

Zacca Living Room

This house has two rooms, one of which I made a kitchen. Here are a few pics of that. I have to comment on the dining set because I coveted this set for months… and I finally caved and got it because nothing I had was right for this kitchen (or so I convinced myself). It’s from LAQ Decor and you get a bunch of colors. The table has rezzers and a ton of options for what to have out (if anything). There’s even a funky timer setting called Auto Clear, so you can have it set to de-rezz on its own!

The other of the two rooms I made into the bedroom, with space for reading and writing because I can’t not have books and pads or typewriters, even in a virtual world!

Bedroom

The typewriter in this collage pic is from Floorplan, and it’s one of the items you can snag at The Arcade. This is the rare floral version.

If you’re looking for an unusual house, this is definitely one worth checking out. I am so in love with it that I’m having a bit of a tough time breaking it all down. I rarely stay attached to houses once I’ve decorated and photographed them, but this one is something pretty darn special.

fri.day @ Pose Fair 2013!

It’s been a while! Traveling, sick, net issues… but all are better now, or better enough! So, without further ado, here are some of the offerings from fri.day for Pose Fair 2013.

First, fri.day has some awesome new individual pose packs, profile.pose & sweet.sour. Below you can get a glimpse of the profile.pose pack. I model poses 3 & 5 of this pack.

Solitary

That’s 3! My adorable tank is a new top from Zanzibar CreationZ. I am utterly in love with it, and not just because it shares my name and is purple! It comes with an awesome hud and has multiple design choices. I love hud controlled clothes. They keep the (ever increasing) clutter of my inventory down just a bit. Plus, they make it easy to change looks without changing clothes entirely!

The skin is Ramona from Al Vulo, one of the recent TDR Fusion versions. Eyes are from IKON, and the gorgeous pants are from Elate! I really like these pants because they are casual, yet a bit dressier than your usual jeans with their trouser-esque cut. My cute flats are from Tee*Fy.

Here’s a shot using profile.pose 5.

Sparkle

The sweet.sour pack is a really fun one. It’s sassy and flirty. This next pic is sweet.sour 3, and it’s my favorite pose in the pack. It’s great for sassy profile pics! I am dressed in various items from FaMESHed’s April round, including this saucy little sundress from Valentina E. Couture, the new Truth release for FaMESHed, and one of the stunning Maxi Gossamer sets.

Feigned Shyness

Also for Pose Fair, fri.day home has a new release… monkey bars! This prop is FUN. I decided that even though I was all gussied up, you’re never too old (or too dressed up) to play! The adorable swingset you see in the background is from What Next and will be featured in another post soon.

Never too old to play

I’ll have more from Pose Fair later today or tomorrow. It closes on Sunday (April 14th) so be sure you get there and grab all the goodies before then!
