This month's theme over at The Challenge is "castaways" and there are lots of great items to be had. I will be showing you more, but if you are in a hurry, just check out the website for all the photos.

KURO, one of the creators of The Challenge returns this month with a super cute Easy breeze seating area (9LI - original mesh) . So cute. AND the animations are great -- and OMG fit me!  I didn't try the couple's poses, but "half" of them look really good *wink*.  

If you have forgotten this is a designer event with item IN THE STORES!   Yes, well -- we don't see a lot of that lately. Hurray for the olden days.

The rocks and plants are not part of the set; they are my photo props. Since I will be -- well, let's call it "locale-less" fairly soon, I set up a staging area below my shop. I have a WHOLE 50 prims or so (well more actually when I take down all the "teleport to demo" signs in a couple of weeks - LOL). Anyway it should be fun. We all make choices and mine is to get back to blogging and pretty pictures. Having some fun along the way works too.

I haven't changed my outfit all that much. It is easy to tell what my favorites of late June are -- earrings by MEVA and sandals buy ArisAris. Just scroll back if you were bad little girls and skipped some days to get all the info.

I DO have a new top which is both classic and sexy. It is from SLX and part of a big set, Mustafa.  I liked the shorts but they didn't fit me too well. Happily there are demos now for SLX releases so check that out. Two colors and three neutrals are in the texture change hud. This fits very nicely and doesn't make you "larger" than you might be :D.

Comfy Clothes

We all have outfits that seem like home. Comfy, often casual -- they are our slip into gear when we just want to be us.

I went out for an early morning walk, not long after dawn in that corporeal world. It was a bright and sunny day in both. The air was still crisp, the trees moving softly as breezes nudged them to wake up from their sleep.

From MEVA these great oversized coin earrings (also available in gold) that coordinate with necklace and bracelet (shown yesterday).  Find them at Cosmopolitan .

The SLX Outfit Blast comes with fitmesh cropped sweater (five color options via hud), bell bottom jeans and study boots (in case you want to do some hiking). A necklace is also in the set. Pick up the demo here.

Street Life

Love for sale?

Well perhaps a shadow --  and for some shadows are enough.

Who is the victim?  The young girl away from home by choice or circumstance?  The man who would rather pay than take a risk with his emotions?

A quick fix; commodities bought and sold. 

Caught in a filigree web which reaches back through history, others watch and frown and point fingers; when in many ways they help write the story.

As the sun announces the end of her performance, she walks in the dusky dawn towards a home that holds no solace, simply a brief escape of sleep and the momentary facade of safety.

From Ducknipple:  the Wortel set. Skirt and top are separate with a multi hud to change colors of either as well as ties and string belt.  The detailing is impressive and the Lara alpha layers happily let me set areas for a perfect match for both skirt and top. Busty gals will have a time with the brief top. Happily I am not in that crowd. Sizing runs true to a bit large.

From MEVA for Cosmopolitan Coins jewelry. Earrings, bracelets and necklaces are available in both silver and gold.
