It's summer. The sun should be shining and it should be warm. Here in Finland summer came this year early... And looks like it ended early too. But in my virtual fantasy world it can be as warm and as sunny as I want it to be. My friend Bella from Olive Juice released a six pack of poses for Super-Bargain Saturday. If you hurry, you may catch them before they are gone.

It's a pack of sitting/ground poses and they have a bit of a vintage photo poses feeling on them. That's why I wanted to accompany the poses with a certain type of clothes. With that vintage feeling.

I matched the Surf Couture's dollarbie shorts from Summer festival at Tableau with this new and cute one-piece from Scribble, sunglasses from MIEL and very feminine high heel sandals from *G FIeld*. By the way, the sandals a packed with a bangle (one for each wrist) which I didn't use this time.

Summer festival at Tableau has been launched today and it will end on June 25. I saw an ad for the new lamb hair available at the event and thought it was really cute. So I rushed to the festival and ended up stuck in terrible lag (you have been warned). However, after the textures started to rez, there was lots of cute stuff available. Freebies and dollarbies also, if you are a freebie hunter. I ended up buying some stuff almost without seeing what I was spending my money on (and definitely without trying any demos).

May I join your band?

Oh and why should you let me join your band? Just cause I would look adorable holding a guitar or singing my lungs off. Don't you see it?

I have been drooling over this cute dress from {Zaara} for a while now. Unfortunately I'm not a big dress person and during winter it didn't seem right to wear something like this. So I didn't feel like having a good excuse to get it. But now the store has an annual sale and a Flickr contest going on and it's summer.

The competition is about creating an interesting look with using old and new products from {Zaara} and even if I say it myself, I think I succeeded on that very well. I based the look to the beautiful Fulvari dress and the funky Churidar slacks. To complete the outfit I used the big hair from booN and simple shoes from Surf Couture. I created the background using Grasses & Plants Brushes and Birds (Flying) Brushes by Obsidian Dawn and a part of a photo I took back in May.

The competition is about some fame and Lindens, but for me it's also something else: Even if I don't win, I know I rocked creating this pic. And at least I now have that dress and I look darn cute in it!

As you may have noticed, I haven't quite found the style of the pictures on this blog. In Second Life I found my style pretty fast. First I had all sorts of freebie clothes and hairs (some of them I later found out to be stolen goods). Their styles varied from sexy to trashy and I wasn't quite happy with them. Later I started to buy and make clothes and other quality designs and that is when I realized what's my style.

Therefore I am

(More pictures and credits in full text.)

My style, quite definitely, is very simple and casual. I like to use bright and bold colors, but I don't like them to clash. I also seem to like pretty cute outfits, girly and sort of sweet. And I love geeky and dorky looks with big glasses.

I'm a SLhairholic. My friends are constantly pointing out how I once again have a new hair. And the way they point it out makes me feel they think I'm being ridiculous. But buying new hair all the time can be hard for my budget, especially when my own sales have been very low. That's why I love the shopping events such as Fifty Linden Fridays.

The outfit below is created around this weeks Fifty Linden Fridays offer from lamb. The hair is set to 50 L for two colours, the one in the pic and a blonde one, titled Butter. I paired it with stylish, but yet sexy dress from This is a Fawn, which is also one of this weeks Fifty Linden Fridays offers.

And speaking of specials, these poses from dfo! are available until midnight May 28 PDT as a Stumblebum Brigade exclusive. Go get the pack before it's gone.
