Throwing Shade…

MYFUKIN HAT2.PNG

Well.. this styling all started with this big beaUtiful hat by .OR. called Michela.
I had to get it.. it was not a matter of a want.. this was a N E E D !
The rest of the outfit is a funky mix and match. The cut of the skirt sorta plays off the whimsy of the hat. The skirt is from [AD] and is part of a 2 piece dress called Summer is Dying. Their clothing is mostly fitmesh but I have never had any issues fitting them to my mesh body.

The top and gloves are from Elegance Boutique called Nada.The shoes ( these shoes have mesh feet attached but they are easy to match) are by {{BSD Design Studio}} called Rhapsody in black.This store sells more than just shoes but the shoes are wicked!!!

Since this outfit really needed no earrings, I added a chunky red necklace by FINESMITH.

My lipstick is by Glamorize called Glitter Funk Lipstick. ( Catwa)

A quick note on my location. ..I was on the stairs at the DaphneArts sim. There are several really cool art installations here to look at so stop on by and take a gander!

So thats my blog post about a styling the all started with my love of big crazy accessories!

Happy shopping & Styling !

Remember the Queens & Kings…

As this is  Black History Month  I wanted to do a post a little bit different from the norm. Many  choose to reflect on our struggle as African Americans and this is a good thing but we need to also reflect on who we were before we were wrongfully taken to America and turned into slaves.

Many of us have no clue from what part of Africa we came from. I wish I did myself and have been half tempted to get one of those DNA test thingies. I know I’m a mutt but it would be pretty awesome to know the parts of my history that were stripped from me.

Science has already proven that Homo sapiens ( you and me ) originated in Africa. So if  the melanin in your skin is a lot or very little Africa is your mother. Black history is ALL of our history. Black history cannot be squeezed into a little month.. there is just toooooo much…

For this blog I searched the grid for a place and found a beautiful one called ALEXANDREA.

It has the most breath taking builds I have seen for this. It is worth checking out. There is a lot to do as it is a role play community.

I have always been obsessed with Egypt.Not only because I am part African American but just for so many different reasons.It is one of the cradles of civilization and gave birth to some of the earliest developments of  writing, agriculture, urbanization, organized religion and central government.Egypt is mostly muslim and has been since the seventh century. You can compare this to how christianity in England became the dominant religion.

blog_eqypt_ful.pngPrior to this ancient Egyptian religion was Polytheistic much like other religions of the time.I will not go into any of this in depth…but there are tons of online resources to explain this further.I am not trying to give you a history lesson …but I hope you will go explore this beautiful sim and maybe I gave you some things to think about or peaked your interest in learning about …and some fabulous things to  add to your inventory.

Chop Zuey~Dream of the Rood Set Silver

This set called Dream of the Rood by Chop Zuey is a fun casual set. Definitely spunky and free spirited.

I really love the color of this set. I love silver and the fact that this has both black stones as well as aquamarine colored stones! ( my birthstone heheheheh )

This set is available at the current round of Designer Showcase. I decided to go with my inner biker chick but this set will go well with any casual outfit to give it that little extra flair.
