Inspired by Eastern European Peasant/Gypsy Field Worker….modern and traditional

July 8, 2009

Hi all! Ok this post is for Doozer of Shade Throne, who suggested I post this look. Thanks Dooze, for the inspiration! A lot of great things are in my inventory, and the most frustrating thing about having them, is I cannot find them!!! This was the case for my skirt and top in this look. I bought them back in October and promptly lost them. I’d think about them on occasion and search and search…finally, yesterday, I found them! WIN! I also found a furniture set I thought was ‘eaten’ by the system. Score! I dunno what it was about yesterday, but I’m loving it!

The top/belt/skirt set is from Minority, this cute shop that specializes in folk outfits of the asian continent. I remember being so excited when I came across this shop, because I am completely passionate about folk wear irl and I thought, “finally!” when I found this ethnic clothes shop. In the tradtional look, I really went all out ethnic, whereas the modern look is what I’d wear irl!!! In fact, quite often I’ll make a paring of a bold ethnic piece with other, simpler basics to make a street-ready, urban, worldly look that is my style. You can certainly do this in world as well!

Domestic V had a special deal today, for a few hours the new Moon Spirit Skin was only 50L. I really appreciate the realism that DomV skins provide in sl. As Lili mentioned, they’re not Barbie perfect. They have a little bit of chappy lips, rougher textured skin and lots of freckles. I know how this sounds…not so hot, but honestly, I think the down-to-earthness of this skin makes it incredibly sexy. There are a a few more new skins out, all are 100L and are quite desirable in my eyes.

Ohhh, and just as you’ve seen on the feeds, Bare Rose‘s new bag rocks! go go go get.

On the home front, I had to gush about this amazing skybox I stumbled upon while on one of my random tp sprees. It’s from Xeniversity and the place is big so here’s the direct tp! The lighting, the tall ceilings, the textures, the sculpted ceiling pipes…ohhhh, make this skybox very special!!! I love it! If I get the inclination to redo house again, this will be at the top of my list!

I’m picking when it comes to prefabs, they have to be *just right.* I do like this one, ‘the hermit’ from Hydro. It’s so cozy, you just may become a hermit yourself, haha. Just joking. It’s cute, quaint, and light-filled, and you’re friends will be begging to come over and chill.

Also, check out these amazing freebie trees from PSYCHOSOMATIC REBUILDERS! I was so excited to come across them, with their unique, cartoony, whimsical shapes and low primmage…they’re irresistible! Ok, I may get one more post in before I go on another mini trip until Sunday! So stay tuned! :D <333Love, Abra
