LOTD - Aesthetic Acuity


          Hello Friends! I decided I would get ready to go out shopping and see some of my friends. Just do something other than stay in my studio for a change. I stepped out in a cute number then quickly went back inside! Ack! It was way colder than I anticipated. *sad face* It seems that happens to me every year, and I am sure it happens to someone out there, other than just me. Once the December holidays, and New Year's is over, it feels like Winter should be over, when actually it has barely started. 

          I looked in my closet and found this great top and sweater from Gawk that I haven't been able to show the world yet. Paired with these super cute pumps from Eudora. The Eudora heels actually make me think of antique aristocratic art you might find in an old mansion in Paris or another romantic part of Europe.  Some moments I just want to zoom in on the shoes and stare for a while, admiring them. I added a few more items, like the jeans from Cracked Mirror, and a super cute handbag from, to complete the look and I was ready to head out. But not before taking a few snapshots of course!

LOTD from Amber Athens - January 20th 2015

Location: ColdLogic

In the past week or so all that snow I mentioned in my previous post is practically gone, and I've adopted a new appreciation for footwear. Inspiring me today was [Mundos], which recently released the Odette Heels as well as an assortment of other absolutely stunning footwear. Like most of my favorite designers, Mundos releases shoes with a HUD that gives you the opportunity to really match any out fit with any color combination to fit your whims. Since generally, having a selection of colors in other stored that I've seen and fat packs ranging in the thousands price range, I have a great appreciation for the ability to get very well made shoes and permission to really jazz it up - or down as seen above for someone like me who isn't as colorful.What's fantastic is that there are quite a few versions in every pack made specifically for quite a few brands of feet. Belleza, Slink, etc.. Another thing that kind of made me giggle was the hud itself, shaped in a similar fashion to a cell phone. This is the HUD included in this pack:

 So as you can see, when I say any color combo, I'm absolutely meaning thousands of combinations.

Another really fantastic item that came out just recently wasn't necessarily new, but rather an update for two designers that I love, Blueberry and Maitreya. Blueberry has been making a very firm footprint when it comes to designing mesh clothing for mesh bodies such as the two I would primarily wear Belleza and recently having released a couple updates in a top and leather pants for Maitreya as well. I do want to mention though, that in the photo above I'm actually wearing the Belleza version because the Maitreya version was obviously not made with the jeans I'm wearing in mind. It fits to perfection. Maitreya also updated some jeans that I recently purchased because of it's custom fit for her Lara Body. Without further suspense, because there should really be no surprise at this point..

What am I wearing?

LOTD from Amber Athens - November 23rd 2014

Well, we have about a month left of Autumn traditionally and I can't say I'm happy to see it go! Autumn is easily my favorite time of the year and this year is no different. Since I was absent for a while with RL consuming my attention, I think it's time to start helping my sister with this blog again and I'm excited to start doing so!

As we are all aware, it's been pretty chilly for this time of year. I swear I'm not saying that just because of my Floridian roots! I was inspired to grab what looked like something different from your regular sweater. Decoy has a sweater at Collabor88 that fit the mark, with a very sheer cut in the back! I remember that last year around this time, there was another sweater that I got from Collabor88 as well and couldn't resist the urge to waive around praise for the designer's work. This sweater was coupled with a pair of shorts and shoes from Maitreya, who's designer (Onyx) is absolutely brilliant and trendy at every step. She has new shoes at Collabor88 this cycle as well, but I'm in love with the ones shown below! Finally my necklace, from Pure Poison

What am I wearing?

  • Skin - LOGO Infinity Sadie Base Skin Amber - Style 1 w/ mesh head
  • Teeth - [Ava] Pixel Perfect Teeth - Natural 1.0
