Echo Beach, Far Away in Time (yes, two posts in a few hours!)

From nine till five I have to spend my time at work
The job is very boring, I’m an office clerk
The only thing that helps pass the time away
Is knowing I’ll be back at Echo Beach some day

— Martha & the Muffins, ‘Echo Beach’

So Paradoxical is the shop of someone I’ve known inworld for years, Paradox Messmer (whose blog is over here).  He’d done a promo image recently for a new top he came up with (he’s only done just a few items, and he’s already texturing things this well!), and I was saving up my pennies, so he threw me a copy of the top. It’s named Solaris: it made me want to go wander on the beach in the afternoon.

I really love the way he’s gotten such a solid knit texture baked into the thing- and it really hangs nicely, too. Good stuff, and hey, at L$150, isn’t it worth a shot?
You can find his marketplace shop here (and yes, there are demos!).

Additionally, this is my 201st post on this blog: I am surprised the anniversary snuck up on me so thoroughly!

‘Tis the season…

…because, obviously I didn’t have anything else going on today, what with the MEGAstuff hunt kicking off tomorrow, The Arcade kicking off tomorrow, Fashion Pride a week and change out, and other stuff, Damien Fate of FATEwear was generous enough to put the whole blessed shop on sale for 50% off today.  So clearly I needed some new shirts and ties to go with the Edward suit I bought some time ago!


And here I am, blogging about it… Continue reading

Sometimes, Things Just Mesh.

Bonus post!

So yesterday, all my mesh hair from Wasabi Pill got eaten by Linden Lab’s ‘network’ of inventory ‘servers’.  I emailed the staff at the shop to ask if they might have a redelivery terminal as everything had evaporated, and the owner was kind enough to just throw me everything I’d already bought!  This was awesome, so I figured one of my favorite hairs of theirs deserved a place in the sun.
And in the process of trying to decide where to go seek that place in the sun, I found myself looking at Ziki Questi’s blog again, and drooling over the gorgeous sim that she’d linked.  So there we go, I’ll go there. Image

While this is supposed to remind one of northern Baja California, it reminded me, frankly, of Alta California coastlines (that is, the USA’s part of what was called California).  I was pleased with this photo!  And with the sleeker look with the Zach hair from Wasabi Pill and the FATEwear shirt and pants!   Maybe… there is more FATEwear I want???

So I went to check on that.


I did not find more FATEwear that I needed to wear, as fate would have it.  But I did find myself wondering what I could pull off with the really gorgeous landing point Damien has set up for his guests, and I was… pretty pleased indeed.
