{ Baby you’re so classic } featuring….FaMESHed, LaRoo, and Belleza

This post is wayyyy overdue, so I apologize for the not so newness of these items but maybe they will still be new to some of you! The month just got away from me much too quickly.  The month is not completely over so there’s still time to catch this round of FaMESHed or Belleza’s November Best Buys.  All clothing items will be available in stores after the event is over.  I decided to make use of all the really great fashion options there were not only from FaMESHed but also from DRIFT and LaRoo (who incidentally just introduced a fantastic new collection of mesh heels w/HUD-controlled feet), and create a classic 3 look preview:  one more uptown, one more downtown and one more casual… I hope you like!

BBB-Nov-all

**Edit** due to holiday, family visiting and then illness this post didn’t make it in time for November, but all the November round of FaMESHed clothing will be in their stores soon…  Sorry! :\

Train-full_draftI’m always on the lookout for beautiful new spots in SL to take photos and Flickr is always a great place to scour through the many photos and see where others are travelling around the grid.. I happened upon this lovely new little town setting called Jade Fawn made by the uber talented Felicity Blumenthal.  She’s not only an awesome blogger and photographer, but really amazing at interior and exterior design.  I kind of fell in love with the lonely little train station there and because it was the perfect winteresque setting for my idea, i plopped down my luggage and waited for my train.

The new Tilton winter coat and dress combo from ColdLogic paired very well with the exclusive Kourtney Booties from LaRoo and then topped off with the new GizzA felt hat, and a classic snowy white and black outfit was born.  By the way, that luggage from .Infiniti. is color-changing annnnd chocked full of poses as well, so they are pretty and practical!

Hope everyone has a great start to winter in SL!

Brevity-single_DRAFT

In my neck of the woods, it’s just about time for school to start up again which for me is accompanied by a huge sigh of relief as the house is much quieter.  However, it won’t be long before I’m back at school myself, as I’ll be finally going back to get my Bachelor’s degree.  “MOM! I finally know what I wanna be when I grow up!”  Hitting the books again after all these years is a bit daunting, but I’ve been assured by everyone that I don’t have anything to worry about.  See back in my youth, I will admit, I was pretty academically minded and an over-achiever.  I might cry if i got a “B”.  And that perfectionist side of me is going to have a hard time letting some kids half my age get better test scores than me, so I’m going to have to up my game.  Make sure they know I mean business.  Gotta get in practice of late nights and lots of coffee…  Oh. Wait.  I might already be ready for that. *grins*

For those of you I know who are going after your education as an adult.. I applaud you and admire you.  It won’t be easy, but that was only 18 years ago right? *nervously laugh*

Brevity-Close_FINAL

Alright, about the pics… First I’d like to say I’d been waiting to blog this cute ready-for-school look for a couple weeks now.  Pretty much from the moment I laid eyes on this plaid dress from Valentina E. at the August round of FaMESHed.  It was just right for what I wanted.  Paired with the super adorable knee high socks and heels from LaRoo and maybe I can call it ‘geek chic’.  I’d also like to mention that this really well done, MESH, low-prim, and low-cost schoolroom that is a perfect set for your back-to-school photos or RPing I found on Marketplace from Utilizator.  And lastly, the poses (in the classroom) are from the new group gift “Brevity” by oOo Studio that will be in store in the next day or two.  The class picture is also courtesy of oOo Studio’s “Yearbook” pose/prop… with several different poses to choose from and backdrop colors.

{ A Bird’s Song } FLF & FaMESHed

Melody_FINAL

When I would play my song
You used to sing along.
I always seem to forget
How fragile are the very strong.
I’m sorry I can’t steal you
I’m sorry I can’t stay
So I put band-aids on your knees
And watch you fly away

I’m sending you away tonight
I’ll put you on a bird’s strong wing
I’m saving you the best way I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing

You know we’re not so far away
Get on a boat, get on a train
And if you ever think you’re drowning
I’ll try to slow the rain
In two years or so
Drop me a line
Write me a letter
I hope to find you’re doing better, better than today, better everyday

I’m sending you away tonight
I’ll put you on a bird’s strong wing
I’m saving you the best way I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing
I’m saving you the only way that I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing
I hope again one day to see you bring your smile back around again
