#308 – Lazy Days and Ramen
As a blogger, I generally pride myself on not taking on more than I feel I can accomplish without feeling rushed or god forbid, missing a deadline or requirement all together. I try and be responsible with and to the sponsors that I take on. It is with this post that I found myself nearly doing both.
The fantastic Winter Wonderland Market event, is one that my oldest friend and sister in SL, Ariana Petrova had put together on her beautiful Malus Park sim. Prin and I were both eager and excited to be a part of this event. The trouble that I caught myself in was that while it was a Winter themed event, as expected a great deal of the merchants involved made Christmas specific items. While I enjoyed blogging those items for the holiday, I found myself having more posts due, post holiday, and struggling to find a way to still achieve my requirements. It is a little odd to do a Christmas post, after the the year has already arrived.
So today I bring you advice, more than merchandising. While Holiday themed events make one wonder, what am I going to do with this once the holdiay is over, try and think about purchases in another light. Like the sweatpants from Ari-Pari. The item is sold as a set, with a winter themed sweatshirt, but the sweatpants included with the set, are a solid color with white stripes. While the sweatshirt may look a bit strange to wear come Spring or Summer, sweatpants are year round attire.
I chose to pair them up today with another top also from Ari-Pari. Which also comes as part of a set, with some really adorable pajama shorts by the way. Toss it on with a cardigan from Blueberry and it is the perfect lazy day look to chill at home and eat Ramen in !
Also something to note, I wear the Legacy body almost exclusively, but I also enjoy wearing clothes that are not sized for it. Yes, the deformers with the Legacy body are very handy for this, I also wear many Maitreya items without the deformers, depending on the look I am trying to achieve. I have many tops that I would love to wear leggins with, but Legacy top and Legacy leggings from different brands do not always play nice with each other, especially in the arse department ! The workaround that I have found is to wear the Legacy top with Maitreya sized leggings, and boob, my booty fits just perfectly under that top without a glitch to be seen. A little shape tweaking to fill it out a little more does the final trick.
