Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
This week was a really tough week for me for various reasons, including a medical scare. So this week’s Red Solo Cup challenge is Strength.
Strength means many things to many people. For me, this week, strength was being able to smile and keep it together while faced with difficult situations. I faced many possible “break downs” this week, but managed to keep it under control for the benefit of others.
What does Strength mean to you?
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
Don’t you just love those lazy days? The ones where you don’t really have to get dressed, you can just bum around all day? Well, Mon Tissu just came out with the new Oversized Shirt perfect for those leisurely days. I was hoping for more colour options but there are enough to make it hard to choose just one. I went with yellow because I’m on a colour kick lately. I’ve noticed most of my newish clothing is either pink or a bland colour like beige or grey so I need to add a little something something every once in a while. I’ve paired it up with Maitreya‘s Stefani pants ’cause come on, nothing says lazy like sweat pants.
Tee*fy released the super cute Skyla Ruffle Sleeve Tank which is perfect for the upcoming summer season! And it goes great with their Lovisa Ruffle Mini Skirt that is now available at Collabor88. Erratic also just released some great mesh owl bracelets. They come in 4 “metals” (gold, silver, bronze and pinkgold). Owls are so trendy right now so you know, go be trendy!
I wanted to show you the Lua’s Cropped Shirt by The Secret Store available at April’s faMESHed. There are 9 designs, 4 color packs, and a demo available. I ask Lourdes Denimore (my female plurk crush) to pose with. I was floored when she actually said yes. Ok, I’m going to fangirl a little bit here but honestly, Lourdes is quite amazing. True, I don’t know her very well but she’s probably one of the most real people I’ve met on SL. Plus, she’s FAMOUS. *social climbs*
Oh, she’s also wearing Lua’s Cropped Shirt in a design I could never look that good in.
