Digits, Part 2

Berry did this thing last year where she asked for our shape digits. It was really interesting and fun to see basically what people were working with. Now that mesh is more and more common, she asked to see our digits again just to see how people are fitting into mesh. [Obviously if you're still a hold out on wearing mesh, this doesn't apply to you.]


I fit into a Standard Size medium for almost everything. Once in a while, mostly in Maitreya clothing for some reason, I fit into a SS small top. Did I tweak my shape for mesh? HELL YES. I was NOT about to just not buy the clothes I wanted just because of the size of my hips. I know some people are super super attached to their shape and aren't willing to change for clothes or skins or anything, but I am not one of those people!! And I wasn't willing to sit around moaning that we need a deformer before buying mesh because, hello? Have you SEEN some of the mesh clothing? Why would I wait?? If the deformer comes out and is the savior of SL like so many people seem to think it will be, then hey, great. But until then...

How has my shape changed from the digits last year? Well, surprisingly, not that much. I am 9 points higher on the height slider but mesh had little to do with that. I'm simply married to a giant man and I needed to adjust my height slightly so I wouldn't look so much like his child. I AM, however, surprised to be 6'2, as in my Edit Appearance window, I'm 5'5, and 5'6 on my "Doctor's Scale." I'm 10 points bigger on the body thickness than I was, although 3 points lower on the body fat index. My hips are a little slimmer, but to be honest with you, I had changed that already anyway after the first digits thing [I felt chunky] and have made them wider for mesh. Everything else is basically the same.

Now let's see your digits!!

Go Go Godzilla!

I've been feeling a little like Godzilla lately. I stomp around and growl! But, it happens, and today I'm a little less stompy and growly with the new release for Truth District that The Sea Hole put out!

Style - Go Go Godzilla!

The new Zilla dress is just whimsical and cute! A simple mesh dress, the fun of this one comes from the print at the bottom of Godzilla attacking a city! Too adorable!

Do you like Maitreya discounts? Me too! And if you're in their VIP group, head over to the store and pick up these Radical boots at a great discount! They are mesh, but I'm sure I didn't need to tell you all that. There are some free mesh lashes and a free mesh skirt there as well, so don't forget to get those.

Stomping off now!

You Don't Need A Mirror To Know You Look Good

If you haven't been to FaMESHed this month, you need to goooo!

Style - You Don't Need A Mirror To Know You Look Good

JANE has some cute dresses at FaMESHed for June, like this Mary Ellen dress! It's simple and classic. And yes, this is my 2nd JANE post this week. Y que? :-p

The Fairy Tales event opens on Friday, and from what I can tell, it's going to be a lot of fun shopping! I'm wearing the Princess hair from Wasabi Pills for the event and even though I'm not really a short hair kind of girl, I love it! It reminds me of how my hair was cut back when I was around 21. Cute!

Come On Over

When I saw the new Shasta dresses from JANE, I immediately thought of a pretty housewife, maybe back in the 50s or so. I absolutely love vintage inspired clothing, so this is definitely a dress for me!

Style - Come On Over

Okay, so maybe it's a little shorter and more low cut than an old school housewife would wear, but that's what makes it fresh! It is mesh, of course, and comes in standard sizes. By the way, all of the older JANE mesh clothing [before standard sizing!] is on clearance! But hurry in, you only have a couple of weeks before it's retired forever.

Don't you love when house makers make decor sets to match houses? Funky Junk recently released the super pretty Beatrice house, and the new Beatrice kitchen was made to match! It's not just pretty, it's interactive! You can cook, wash dishes, sit around. It's fun! For those of you who like a little more realism in your SL, this is the kitchen for you. Come on over, I'll make you some soup!

Mad Glam

Okay, I'll admit it. I'm one of probably 4 people in the world who doesn't watch Mad Men. So when Trompe Loeil released the NYC66 apartment for Collabor88 and people told me it was a recreation of Don Draper's home, I could have been told it's Tony Danza's apartment and not known the difference. But what I DO know is that it's awesome!

Style - Mad Glam

All mesh, mostly furnished, and only 260 land impact! Amazing! It's also more of a masculine home, so you men out there are sure to love it.

Glam Affair released a couple of great things for Collabor88 this month! The Zoe dress is a lovely little mesh number. You could easily pair this with boots or heels, or wear it over leggings or even jeans. So versatile!

The Mia skin is quite pretty, although not my normal style. I really love the bright eye makeup to match this month's Collabor88 theme. Here's a close up shot.

I love the 7th of every month for one huge reason... Collabor88 starts the next day!! This month's theme of "Shindig" is a blend of summery citrusy colors that you won't want to pass up!

Style - Shindig

Chantkare brings us the Shaggylicious mesh sundress. It's a simple dress but the colors in this just POP! Paired up with Ingenue's mesh Jive wedges, also at Collabor88, you have a great summer look!

NOT at Collabor88, the new Harmony chairs from aDORKable Poses! This is such a fun photo prop! There are 5 poses in the chairs and the chairs move around with each pose. I'm sure I'll be on these again soon because seriously? It's just too cute!

Hope you weren't planning on saving your money this weekend because I don't think it's going to happen!

Several Amazing Pixels

I kind of embarrassed myself earlier when the new One Bad Pixel releases were shown. Before I could stop myself, I wrote "I want to lick the dresses!" Who SAYS that? But for real...look how pretty this one is!

Style - Several Amazing Pixels

I'm wearing the Chryssie Maxi Dress and I'm so in love with it, I might not take it off for a while. It's just so pretty! It has one strap that goes around the back, shows plenty of cleavage, and it's long, but not so long that it's sinking into the ground. I'm barefoot in this photo and the dress just skims the ground. There are a dozen colors and I just KNOW this will be a summer staple!

If you haven't been out to CHIC² yet, go go go! You NEED the Anais 2 hair from Wasabi Pills! I was a huge fan of the first version of this hair with the ponytail, and now I love this version even more!

Oh, and if you didn't know, Zaara is having their annual sale until June 9th! 50% off all items, so head out there and shop! I've been in love with the Indra painted stacked bangles for a long time! And after you hit up the Zaara sale, head to Long Awkward Pose for the final closing sale. It's sad, but at least you can pick up some awesome poses for cheap!

Time for more shopping!

Oh so CHIC!

It's almost time for the CHIC² birthday event to open!! It opens today at 4pm SLT. I'll come back and update this post with the SLurl when it does! It's open now!!!!!

Style - Oh So CHIC!

There is a lot of CUTE CUTE stuff out there, as you would expect from a CHIC Management event, so it's definitely not to be missed! The event has 150 of CHIC's best loved stores and each brand will have one new and exclusive (for the duration of the event) item with the theme of CHIC. Also, be sure you're good with your camera. The event area is smallish, but the store pods are stacked in levels. You could fly to each one, but I was able to see everything by just standing in one spot and camming around. And yes, it WILL BE LAGGY ON OPENING DAY. Go in a simple outfit and take off your scripted items. Believe me, no one cares what you look like or how you're walking. They just want to shop!

The CHIC² birthday event starts at 4pm SLT today and runs until June 24th.
