Wicca's Wardrobe New Release!

I wanted to show my punk side today. Wicca's Wardrobe helped me out with their newest release at the Regal Boutiques called Horizon Jacket and Ares Pants. The detailed accessories on the Horizon Jacket and Ares Pants is amazing. It's so realistic! It might be the vibrant plaid color on the collars, pockets, and flair bottoms. Or it could be the belt. How about the pants chain dangling behind? No, I got it! It's the zippers, straps, studs, and rings! Okay, Okay, maybe it's each piece that makes it is so amazingly realistic. But that's not all. Both creations come with eight changeable colors, and price? How about,  295Ls each. In total for the full Horizon Jacket and Ares Pants 590Ls. Worth it? Most definitely!

Wanting to keep the punk style going I headed over to Truth to find Holly. I've never had black hair before, so it was a nice change! Tipped with blue it helped draw out the plaid of blue and green. Next something around my neck. Now I didn't want to go with the 'normal' necklaces, I wanted something catchy. I headed over to [MANDALA] and ta da! The unisex Smexy Tie Necklace drew me right away. Selecting it and then moving onto shoes. I will say at first finding the type of shoes I had in mind took a minute until I recalled HOC. HOC sells a mix of affordable accessories and shoes. There I found the Lowtops and it was easily changeable to 9 colors. Cost? 50Ls.

Though this post isn't under 500Ls for the full styling, it's still considered to be a skater punk styling to have in any wardrobe.  Don't you think? If you have any questions about this styling please don't hesitate to contact me in SL. Thank you

A Jungle Safari in Sweet Temptations & CZ

A Jungle Safari in Sweet Temptations & CZ

by Avalon Chrome

I decided to cross something off on my bucket list today--to come face to face with an elephant. I'll tell you more about that amazing experience later. But first let's talk fashion.

How to Dress for a Jungle Safari Fashionista-Style

With the intention of going full-out in animal prints (faux hides of course, because real would just be cruel!). I put on this most amazing and incredibly detailed zebra dress called, "Elsa" from Sweet Temptations.  Then keeping in theme, I put on my "Asphyxia" leopard print heels (Reign) and grabbed my "Cheetah" clutch (Aushka & Co.). (What??? Doesn't everyone wear high heels a clutch purse on jungle safaris?)

On the Rocks, with a twist

Okay, then there's the jewellery. I may be swatting mosquitoes, and tripping over animal dung but darn it, I'm going to look good in Chop Zuey (CZ) while I do it! I adore CZ because I know I'll find always something to perfectly compliment my outfit. I can also easily mix and match my CZ jewellery.

 So I decided on the "River Rocks" set which has a rustic feel to it. I've worn it tons of times because it's gorgeous and just so much fun to wear. But today I felt my look required more bulkiness around my neck.  So I added a chunky CZ beaded necklace (the Pasar la Sal Pearl Choker base) to the "River Rocks" necklace.

 Nice Kitty

So for my elephant quest, I found the most incredible sim called the Makeahla Jungle . Quite appropriately, their motto is: "Rediscover the Heart of Nature".  I was so taken with the natural scenery that I got my feet tangled up in some vines and almost tripped. Had it not been for a very large cat catching my fall, I would have landed flat on my butt. Thankfully, he wasn't interested in making a meal out of me.

Hold still as sec, while I fix my heel...nice kitty.

I spent the afternoon taking in the beauty of this wild life on this sim. There are large variety of birds, giraffes, zebras and even orangutangs. In fact, I'm pretty sure one was trying to look down my top from his POV in the trees. The perv!

 But as beautiful as the sim was and as wonderful as all the animals were, I still couldn' t find any elephants.

At last!

The sun had just set and as I was about to give up, low and behold I stumbled onto a small heard of elephants having a drink of water at a pond. They looked so peaceful, I hated to interrupt them. But they didn't seem to mind my intrusion as I cautiously moved closer.  I stood before them moved to tears, awe-struck by these great, majestic animals. Speaking softly, I reached up and gently touched the tusk of the larger elephant and then I reached over and stroked her massive leathery trunk.

Notice the excellent detail in the back of the "Elsa"dress found at the Sweet Temptations store on the Regal Sim.

Remembering what's important

There was silence but for the sound of the elephant's breathing and the occasional flapping of their ears. And in that moment I thought about just how appropriate the mantra that's on the "About" page of this sim. It truly is:

"A place for mankind to remember what's important: That which we should co-exist with, that which we should preserve." 
I thought sadly about how the elephant needs protection from the horrors of poachers or someday they'll all be gone. I just can't imagine a world without elephants, can you?

I don't know if the elephant is my "spirit animals" or what it is. But I have a very real and profound connection with elephants.  I will never forget the experience and I highly recommend you visit the Makeahla Jungle sim and experience it for yourself. Dressed to the nine's in Chop Zuey and Sweet Temptations, of course!
