Miami Vice

Miami Vice

 

Nostalgia – 80’s Style…

It’s been a thing lately. I’ve been yearning all things circa 1980’s. I’m not sure why. Maybe I’m at that point in my life I’m starting to miss all the things that influenced the person I became. I have been rediscovering the movies, the music and the TV shows. I caught an episode of Miami Vice and remembered the fashion trend that the show started. The sports jackets over pastel t shirts. Neon and pastel colors, deck shoes were all trendy fashion back in the day.

When Neons and Pastels were the craze…

My look today mimics the style that Don Johnson (Dakota Johnson’s dad, for you youngsters) made famous. I found the Daniel Blazier, a new release at A&D Clothing (not free) for that jacket over t-shirt look. I then turned to the Marketplace and browsed the Pepper store for other pieces for my outfit. The Chino Trousers in light plum (10L) and the all white Slip on Sneakers (2L) makes my 1980’s Miami look complete.

The Buried Man

Buried Man

It’s the end of the world as we know it…

But why sweat the small stuff. I’ve got a shack to live in, a fire to keep me warm, and a large broken statue that creeps me out at night. Who could ask for more? I was lucky enough to win this outfit at the Lucky Board at Angel DELUXE (before the world went to hell in a hand basket). The Desert Outfit can be won if your lucky letter come up. You do need to be a Angel DELUXE group member to click the board, but the join fee is just 10L. I’m also wearing the Shearling Boots,  a FREE group gift from Gabriel and the TopGun Retro Glasses, also a FREE group gift from A&D Clothing. I had a lot of fun exploring The Buried Man Sim. Check it out!

Simply Amazing

Amazing

Oh, what a feeling…

In just a few short days I will have the next 2 months and change to myself, answering to nobody and only having to cater to her needs… (uhh …I meant my dog, not sure who you were thinking I was talking about.) The pressure of the past month are slowly slipping into just a memory and I have nothing but sunshine and blue skies to look forward to. And you can also look amazing in the group gift from AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS. This month’s gift is a green striped Men’s Shirt. This shirt comes in the stadard XS-XL sizes plus fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

I paired the shirt with  new items from A&D Clothing. The Patrick Pants and the Nautics Shoes can be purchased individually or in fatpacks. I always choose the fatpacks because like Pokemon, I got to catch them all. Y’all have an amazing day!

Summer Breeze

Summer Breeze

 

Blowin’ in the wind….

There is nothing more refreshing than an unexpected breeze to start blowing. I love the feeling of the air rushing past my body. Even my dog loves it enough to point her nose in the direction of the gust and lets the wind blow her ears back…

Not always equal….

I found a couple more L’Homme gifts for today’s look.  You can pick up the Asymmetric Jacket, The FREE L’Homme gift, at Gabriel. Another L’Homme gift can be picked up at GizzA Creations . The FREE Boots are next to the Oversized Sweater that I posted [HERE]. The L’Homme group is FREE to join. The Chess Jeans is another FREE group gift in the building of freebies at Egoisme that I talked about [HERE]

School Dayz

School Dayz

The long, slow walk to the end…

For those of us who’s working lives are in academia, the month of May is the slowest of the year.  Faculty and students (even the janitorial staff) have a date marked on their calendar and are slowly counting down the days. But for some reason that day seems so far out of reach….

Id, Ego and Ink Blots…

My spring collegiate (and tired) look today is packed full of freebies and dollarbies! Ink Blots have provided as a hunt gift in the Peace By Peace Hunt, the Peace By Peace Gift Shirt. This pullover shirt with a hoodie projects a laid back, comfy feel. All the gifts in the Peace By Peace Hunt are just 1L each. Did you know that Egoisme has a whole building of FREE gifts? Hit the FREE group joiner in the building and pick from a wide selection of shirts and pants. I selected the Brown Jeans (among others).

End of the year events…

My final gifts are from events. I stopped by The Mens Department Event (TMD) and found a FREE gift from Gabriel. The Rolled Bracelets come for both arms and can be worn individually or together. It also has a resizer for each wrist to get the right fit. My other FREE gift was found at the [BODY FACTORY] booth at the We<3RP Event. The black Backpack I’m slugging around also has a built in resizer that you can adjust each axis to fit any shape.

So what’s my final countdown? Eight long days…

Bright Sunshiny Day

Bright Sunshiny Day

When you call my name…

… It makes my day that much brighter… even if it’s just to pick up a gallon of milk at the market. So I’m off to the store to pick up the essentials until we can make a grocery run later this weekend….

Or just walk on by…

Today I’m showing off the Men’s Floral Taupe T-Shirt by Virtual Glitter that happens to be the 1L hunt gift in the Flowerage Hunt 2. This shirt comes in standard mesh sizes XS-XL. After putting on the shirt I knew what pants shorts I wanted to wear with it. I put on the Paramilitary Shorts, the FREE L’Homme gift at Prism for Men, I originally showed [HERE] and the Black Sunglassesthe Moolto Spring Fling Hunt gift at QualityDesignZ that  I first showed [HERE].
Yeah, Yeah…I won’t forget the milk….

Call Me Jim

Call Me Jim

Sunday Stroll…

There’s no better way to spend the first weekend in May than taking a walk among the flowers just coming into bloom. And if you’re looking for flowers, look no further than the Flowerage Hunt 2. Just look for the blue flowers (pink flowers for the ladies or purple for unisex gifts) and get some nice dollarbie gifts. At Sparrow by Design I found the Call Me Jim Sweater and Enfield Cargo Pants. Both the pants and sweater come on standard XS-XL sizes and are both nicely textured. This is most definitely a keeper for the wardrobe. The Flowerage Hunt 2 runs through the end of May.

In this outfit I don’t mind if you call me Jim… Just don’t call me Bob….

Jitters

<taps on the window> ….. <moves his face close to the glass, cups his hands around his face and peers inside> ….. < rattles the door handle>…. <taps on the window>…  

It was the best of times….

My day didn’t start out the best…. I crawled out of bed, threw on the closest and most convenient clothes, put a leash on the dog and took her out for a walk…. a normal Saturday morning. But that’s when it all started going down hill….  After Angel gets her morning treat for being a good girl, I start my routine of making coffee. I reached into the cabinet and pulled out the box of pods. My hand reached in and felt around in the nothingness of the empty box.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

It was the worst of times…

Seriously, how could I have let this happen. Out of coffee… you my as well just call it a day and start over…. So I walked down to the local coffee house and opened the door TRIED to open the door. LOCKED! They aren’t open yet… so I stand here waiting for my first fix cup of the day. My early morning outfit consists of several group gifts, all of them FREE. I’ll start off with my Gift T-Shirt from Ascend. It should read “meet me at the coffee bar” instead of “Meet me at the hotel”. My  Eros Navy Jeans are a FREE group gift from *It’s Gau*. These jeans are low-rise with a baggy front. My Beanie is a group gift from <Kalback>. With a bit of adjusting, it even fit my messy hair. All these groups are FREE to join.

I see movement inside…. <rattles the door handle>…

High Desert Morning

High Desert Morning

 

Packing it up for the weekend…

I need a little getaway to put my mind at ease and to get a bit of stress relief.  So I hooked up the Airstream and started driving. I found a spot in the High Desert to camp and listen to the beautiful sounds of silence. With just the wind in my face and in my ears, it’s easy to relax here.

Not a Loud Rebel….

Today’s outfit is from Loud Rebel Designs. They are celebrating their new store on the Celebration sim with a FREE group gift to members. The Dennis Outfit is a one piece outfit that combines a shirt, pants and a jacket and includes a texture changing HUD to give you three different looks. The group is FREE to join currently, so grab this gift while you can. [EDIT: The LRD group is no longer free to join. The new join fee is 50L]

Everyone enjoy your weekend…. I’m gonna relax….

Brooklyn Bridge is Falling Down

Brooklyn Bridge

Crazy Dayz…

Every year, around this time, I’m a bit stressed. It’s crunch time at work… I’m always tired and a grumpy cat. Every little thing gets under my skin. It’s times like this I tend to wander off by myself because, trust me, I’m my own best company. But, I know in just a few short weeks, the stress will be gone and I can take a nice long (and well deserved) break.

Cross that bridge when you come to it…

Today, I found the Brooklyn Outfit at TentatioN. This is a for the SLF&O group members. Not a member? The group is FREE to join! This outfit comes with a texture changing HUD for both the shirt and the pants for several different looks to suit your needs. On my feet I have the Barcelona Shoes from A&D Clothing. This also includes a texture HUD for different laces and soles.

Countdown… T-4 weeks…
