Taking My Time

Hey Swagsters! It has been some crazy busy few days, but I am back with some hot new items. Deadwool is seriously one of my new favorite spots. Masa Plympton has created western/vintage wear with a twist. Check out these jeans. They’re definitely old school, yet anybody could easily make them fit with modern wear. The quality of these items are out of this pixel world, so make sure you swing by and take a look. Feel free to drop some feedback below and let me know what you think!

BOSS302_001

The photos really speak for themselves, but I’ll go ahead and say it … THIS CAR IS BADASS!! This Boss 302 from P&W comes with a few options. Two driving options, one with various animations and, I think this is really cool, a convenient wearable version that allows for you to show off your ride in areas that don’t allow for rezzing. Also, a speedometer HUD allows for all the details of a real life vehicle such as flashing signal lights. I haven’t even touched on the car’s interior yet.

BOSS302_003

Pimped out. It’s the car street racers look for. See the video screen? There are two more, one on the back of each bucket seat, and they work! Just like any other screen in SecondLife, scroll over it and the Quicktime bar pops up. You could sit on your ass, playing with this thing for hours, I’m sure, and still find reason to get excited over it. I’m new to the designs of P&W, but it’s easy to see that they pull reality into the virtual world like none other.

Baby Blues

Okay, so it was late last night and I was standing around the house with Jayden just passing the time when *BING!* it hit me. I’ll do another blog post! So here is what I came up with. This plaid button down can be found at The Mens Dept. courtesy of Flow. It’s liquid mesh, so it fits to your avatar’s body really well. Also, I’ve tossed on what might be more frequently seen on a female’s wrist, but I don’t care. I’m rockin’ it! Take a trip to SL Fashion Week to pick this bracelet from Things up.

You Make It Real

I’m sure many of you Swagsters are male or play male avatars in-world, right? Okay, then most of you will know that too many of the fashion events around the grid lack male items. The girls get all the goods and what about us? Left out in the cold with maybe a cap and a good pair of jeans? Pfft! Events such as Boys of Summer, which ends today, do a fantastic job at promoting those designers who create mens and unisex clothing. Male avatars with less than 50k items in their inventory salute you! Having said all this, I don’t want to completely kick the female fashion-filled events to the curb.

SL Fashion Week, for instance, is a great setup and another great way to discover different designers and swag to buy for your girlfriends. So as a sponsor of SwaggedOut, how is an event such as this heavily girly one best represented on a predominantly male fashion blog? With my shopaholic girlfriend at my side, of course. The good sport took her time shashaying around SLFW, buying up her favorites from Atooly, Pink Acid and others, and then posed with me for a good 30 minutes while I messed about with windlight settings for a photo. Definitely a trooper!

And get over to XIAJ! The sim is an amazing trip through a grungy subway station, hopping from hidden door to hidden door for each department. Ladies, hop on your man’s back if you don’t want to mess up your pretty manicured toes because you’ll be able to find clothes, shoes and accessories for you here, as well!

Stairway to Heaven

How’s it hangin’ Swagsters?!
I was feeling a bit inspirational today with this tattoo from Identity, featured at The Thrift Shop. So I tossed some random items together and jumped over to the Egoisme sim to strike a pose. I know it took me for freakin’ ever, but I FINALLY bought these BioTech pants from Fruk. If you’re later than I am, quit waiting around and grab some of these. That is, if you can save your lindens long enough to find them at the back of the store!

Leave Out All the Rest

Leaving it all behind me as I take a family vacation to the East Coast. For too long, my mind was congested with negativity, but now in the cool breeze surrounded by history, I can breathe a sigh. It’s what I’ve needed for a full year. Breakups, job losses, losing loved ones, etc. Whatever you may have been or are now going through, just take a step out of your comfort zone and breathe. Okay, so I sound like Dr. Phil or something, but it is what it is. As someone who has a fear of flying, I have to thank my friends and family for pushing me onto the plane, almost literally. This week will be worth it!

Daydreaming

Living in a city of sleepless people
Who all know the limits and won’t go too far outside the lines
Cause they’re’ out of their minds.
I wanna get out and build my own home
On a street where reality is not much different from dreams I’ve had
A dream is all I have…
Daydreaming
Daydreaming all the time
Daydreaming
Daydreaming into the night
And I’m alright
– Paramore
