The Return of the Raid Your Closet Challenge!

Hi! So, I’ve brought back the Raid Your Closet Challenge! RYCC 3.0 is officially underway. If you missed the original and the sequel, now’s your chance to take part in the latest version. Not familiar with RYCC? Well, here’s a page with lots of info!

The RYCC Page

This challenge requires that everything blogged was in my (and should you choose to participate, your) inventory as of 11:59 pm April 30th, 2015. As in every prior RYCC you are expected to wear an entirely new outfit – something you’ve never blogged/photographed/worn before – each week (or however often you participate), but you can have exceptions. My exceptions include my shape (my own creation) and my eyelases (Mon Cheri’s Falsies, which I wear nearly exclusively). I likely also frequently repeat my SLink mesh hands and feet, though probably not in every post. If you decide to participate, either via Plurk, Flickr or your own blog, just make sure you list your own exceptions, too!

For my first pic, I’m wearing seriously adorable Ohmai Salon hair I bought at last year’s Hair Fair and never wore once. I built the outfit around this hair, and the dress is from Gizza that I bought at Shiny Shabby a couple of rounds back. Without further ado, here are my pics… both taken at Blithe, which is fast becoming a favorite place to take pics!

Birds of a feather...

Thanksgiving

I love Thanksgiving, and yes, it can be overlooked. Especially with how late it was this year, how close to Christmas, it tends to wind up on the back burner for some. But really, as much as I love this holiday, I don’t need a special day for giving thanks. I am so incredibly grateful every day for the many, truly amazing people in my life and for the good things, even the small things.

Thanksgiving

Before retreating to the warmth of the Thanksgiving table, I spent some time outside in the snow. I had on a cozy sweater and was sipping cocoa, and the truth is, I like the cold and snow (which is good, given where I live in RL!). This gorgeous new skin I am wearing is Eva by Belleza, and it’s one of multiple makeup options coming very soon to Uber.

The cold never bothered me anyway

Faded Love

So the folks at Uber have a contest for the October 50 Shades Of Grey inspired edition. I decided this was a perfect opportunity to push my boundaries a little. So I grabbed an alt and took her to Uber for some goodies (frankly, she’s usually dressed as a guy so this was just fun for a change). Here are the results!

It’s kind of rare for me to really love a picture and not nit pick the ways I could’ve made it better. So to get two I loved from one shoot is really unusual, but I did. In this first one, I loved the vulnerability…

Stay

…and this version is going to be my contest entry. I felt it better showed the gorgeous corset I’m wearing from Shai, along with the lovely bed from Sway’s.

Faded Love

This was a lot of fun, and it definitely pushed me. You still have some time to go to Uber to grab the goodies seen here, along with plenty others! Full fashion and decor credits below.

White Hot

ISON recently released this gorgeous Leather Trim dress. I fell in love with this one big time. I love how it enhances my av’s curves, and all the color options it comes in. It’s super sexy, sophisticated and makes me feel a bit like an elegant rebel! Here, I’m wearing it in Silver, which I felt called for some super vivid red hair (taking a page out of my little sister’s book!). I added these funky boots from SLink. I’ll be honest, every time I wear these I feel like I’m in an episode of Star Trek (TOS). This is a good thing!

Fire and Ice

I’m wearing a version of Essences Alex that was recently available at The Dressing Room. I love this face so much. I think it’s my absolute favorite Essences skin to date. It’s adorably sexy and pouty. I don’t know if this makeup will ever be for sale again, but there IS a version of Alex available at the new Uber event (which is awesome). I hope to be blogging that version in the near future, but meanwhile you can tp to Uber to check it out for yourself!

Champagne & Music

I was in a mood to decorate, and I had this lovely living room set from Atelier Visconti for The Garden. I wanted a dramatic coffee table, and DIGS has this tufted coffee table that felt it would go perfectly with the rest of the set. I added DIGS end tables and lamps from Pixel Mode’s Josephine (also at The Garden), and voila! But then I needed a piano, and ofc some books… and assorted decor. After which point, I was fairly tired so I relaxed on my Alouette piano.

Sing me a song

But I was all dressed up, so I decided that maybe I needed to go out for a drink. Except I wasn’t really feeling in the mood for company, so what to do? Ah! A solo glass of champagne in my clock tower bar.

Beach Babes

My Attic ends tomorrow, and W. Winx & Flair have created this playful photo scene with poses called Wish You Were Here. I got a fellow blogger to put on a bikini and pose with me for this one. My cute hair is also at My Attic, from Ploom. As always, the items at My Attic are just L$95 so be sure to hurry over before it ends and grab yourself some summer goodies.
