Not at all Rusty, only 9 years old

I have spent much time this week visiting the SIMs celebrating the 9th birthday of SL. I did it in RUST colored clothes because this was the week of rust in Luna Jubilee's color challenge.
This photo - from somewhere in one of the 14 sims - expresses some of the joy and whimsicality, some of the colorfulness and sheer fun of the celebrations. There are many fantastic builds and lots of pictures of everything to be found all over Flickr and the SL blogosphere.

One of my visits was dedicated to visiting the many exhibiting artists at SLB9. Here I stand in one of Ginger Lorakeet's beautiful immersive pictures.  You find room for yourself in all of them. There is even one picture for free.
I had chosen this dress  from bilo and the hair from Exile to be my rust outfit. Then I saw the exact same dress and hair in  one of Cajsa Lilliehook's posts on her It's only Fashion blog. Should I refrain from using it? With all of us going to the same events, we will eventually have such coincidences, so I decided to call this an hommage à Cajsa, whose photography and writing is truly amazing and an inspiration every day.

I also had time to do other things than going to the birthday party. I visited 2Xtreme's new mainstore with modern furniture, recreations of the best by Eames, van der Rohe and Le Corbusier. And found one chair to be a good frame for the rusty theme.
I love the somewhat more grown up look in the Kate skin from Baiastice.

At the end of the second day of birthday celebrations, my SL Birthday Kittycat had already grown a little and seemed to enjoy itself in its new home. These cute kitties are  a generous gift from Kittycats to all visitors.

What I'm wearing:

Dress: Bilo- Tallulah in Setting Sun
Feet: *GA* Flat Bare Feet 
Hair; ::Exile:: Kiss Me:Sear
Ring: LaGyo_Bonbon ring gold L
Anklets from Maitreya , part of their great flip flops from last year.
Skin:  Baiastice_Kate-porcelaine
Eyes: FASHISM 'Sunrise' Eyes - Silver&Rust  

The rusty bead tank in copper is also from bilo, and the boyfriend jeans are from Maitreya. Hair on last picture is Daisy from Lelutka
All poses belong to the props and furniture


  1. Post full of information thanks, i love it Alexandra.. i sure will watch that blog from casja too.. love chairs from van der Rohe( used it also for a post once )

  2. I forgot about that dress! I could have used it too, it looks lovely on you and your casual look is adorable.

  3. Such a cute set of photos I am gonna check out SLB9 today and wander round it slowly lol!!! These pics have really got me itching to go hehe

  4. Thanks for your sweet words. I never worry about wearing the same thing, though. We all have our own style - from shoes to jewelry to hair (welll, maybe not hair!). If someone wears something that I am wearing, I just think another person with good taste. lol

  5. Beautiful, my favorite is cat picture!

  6. AWWWWWW You got a kitty!! I got my first last year at SL8B and he's now turning one!
    I love the Immersive pic and the one on the chair too :)
