Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
It’s taken me a few weeks to decide this and it wasn’t an easy decision by all means, but I think it’s time to let Next Pointless Trend fade away forever. I’ve enjoyed my time as a blogger and glad to have experienced that side of SecondLife.
Thank you to everyone who made this a success for me (in my eyes, 38000+ views ain’t too bad!). Thank you to all the designers/stores that enjoyed this blog enough to want me on their blogger list. Thank you to all the friends that kept encouraging me to continue this when I felt like giving up, some of my best posts were because of you.
Even though I won’t be updating Next Pointless Trend anymore, I can’t bring myself to delete it completely. So please enjoy past posts until the day comes that I decide to let it go for good.
Your biggest fan,
Check out my new blog, FRWRD/SLSH. Same great taste, new name!
I find out about lots of new products from Juicybomb, including My First Jeans from Monso. I tend to find a jeans I
like love and then never take them off. Like Maitreya‘s jeans…I LOVED them and they were the only thing I wore for the longest time. Then it was Crash Republic. Now it’s Deetales but I think the new favourite might be My First Jeans from Monso. These look great, come in two styles (light and dark stitching), and along with regular “jean” colours there are “funky” colours available at faMESHed. I highly suggest trying out the demo, these might end up being your new “go to” jeans!
I don’t usually join blog challenges (even though I started my own) because…well, because I see what other people do and I’m all like “OMG I’M NOT THAT GOOD!” But after 7 weeks, I’ve decided to try out the SL Disneybound challenge from Style Minions. They are seven weeks in so I’m now playing catch up. I skipped week one (Peter Pan) because I had too many ideas, I have to figure out just one to use! I’m also trying to use stuff I already have and not going out of my way to buy specific items for it so we’ll see how that goes…
Week Two: Ariel
Week Four: Snow White
Week Five: Dory
There are a few events going on in SL at the moment (aren’t there always?) but this weekend, the fifth Fantasy Faire opens. Personally, I’ve never been but I hear it’s quite amazing, especially if you are into fantasy wear. Plus, it’s a Relay For Life event so it’s for a good cause too! Pin Me Down will be one of the vendors at the faire (sharing a stall with SAKIDE this year, so you can find them on the Lotus Valley Dream sim) with some exclusive makeups. The Warrior comes in a faded black, and faded white which is tintable you can make it any colour you want. Myst comes in six different layers so you wear it how you want. Because this is a RFL event, 100% of the purchase price will go to donations. Another Warrior makeup will be a hunt prize that goes on for the duration of the Faire.
Speaking of fairs, Kawaii Fair has already started and runs until the 26th (or 28th? Both dates are listed on the blog so I’m not sure). Kawaii is full of
nauseously adorably cute everything! Most of it isn’t my style but had to pick up this super cute Panda Tank Top from (R E D). It’s a panda! How can you not want it?!
Oh, one last thing, this week’s Red Solo Cup challenge is Austin Powers / 60’s British Invasion! I got inspired because someone on plurk mentioned that with LeLutka‘s Bouffant hair, I looked like a fembot from Austin Powers. So originally I wanted to take a picture with a bunch of girls, all with the same lingerie and hair but because of various issues, it ended up just being Aevalah and I. I think we would be some pretty damn hot fembots.
I can’t wait to see all your submissions in the Flickr group because I think this will be a real fun theme for everyone!!
I probably should have mentioned this over the weekend but Apple May Designs new mesh dress September was available for 75L. Now it’s regular price. Yeah….sorry about that. It’s available in three “muted” colours (taupe, pink, and sky) and comes with a cute matching, mesh collar.
LeLutka also has some recently released hair. Usually I don’t go for the big “lion mane” like hair but I couldn’t resist picking up Bouffant. Also included is a separate pearl tiara attachment that adds a little something something to the style. Bouffant is definitely an attention grabbing and versatile hairstyle.
