Steambound was one of the stores I literally discovered in one of the hunts, and was immediately captivated by the rich tone of the textures that Margo Imako used on the outfit pictured below, which was the gist of the SLD Hunt. Curious about the rest of her creations, I headed her main store in Endless Despair (what an amazing name for a sim, hehehe) only to find a small really nice headquarters with a few things I wouldn’t mind wearing myself if I strolled around a bit more at Caledon, for instance.

With an ambience of its own, it surely takes us back to a couple of centuries ago. A quiet place to shop comfortably, away from the mobs… ah and if you take out the upper layers, you’ll notice how lovely are the under ones if you wear them as… lingerie *winks*

I have not the least patience to faulty products, I am afraid. It looks like I will not be able to access adult content with this previous viewer. What a pity, LOL

My pictures are back to normal, now and that’s all that matters. However, I am sure this will mean a serious turndown to lots of users… Never saw a corporate so eager to dig their own grave but oh well, they know what they are doing for sure (not? hehehe)

I first noticed this in another laptop, and thought it could be the graphic card, therefore I didn’t paid too much attention. However, today I decided to take some pictures around at 100Limite, and although this one didn’t get out too bad…

100Limite

in this one I began realising something was wrong…

and this one finally conviced that the new viewer changed some settings that I am not figuring out how to put back as they were.

In my screen I can see the reefs top, I keep seeing them whenever I chose take snapshot in the file menu – but then my final picture shows this amazing result. As usual, I chose high res picture in the advanced menu, I set the picture size at 2400 px (this being my regular size for ages) and yet… to get a proper result I have to place my camera way higher than normal…

Guess this will be a viewer to forget – wish I could at least understand why is this happening…

Yesterday I left a hint, today I am showing a Malt design which is one of the reasons I enjoyed the store so much. And while looking for a place to shoot the background, I discovered Galonge. I was in the mood for a bit of sand, but would have never dreamt I would find that many in just one place. Worth the visit of every desert lovers.

Shopping district

It is scientifically proved that when tired… women shop, as a leisure activity. Well, we also shop when we feel down to compensate sadness and we also shop when we feel happy, to celebrate. It helps airing our minds away, makes us focus on beauty and pushes us into positive focus, thus… women shop a lot, that’s a fact.

I was in fact exhausted as I came back from this recent business meeting abroad, and decided to finally chase some shades I was looking forward to buying some time ago. I headed to Kalnins at Fusion Crossing, where I had noticed a wide variety of models with some amazing built-in features I really enjoyed, such an incorporated radar that notifies you about avatars coming close, an emo option which automatically translates your typed smiles into facial expressions, included facelight, etc.

As I went out of the store, all happy with the new shades hanging on my nose, I noticed some other pretty cool stores around and decided to explore a bit… then decided I had to share this place, for there are ome of the best shops in-world no doubt. Amongst some well-known brands you will be able to find stores such as Indyra, Total Betty, Riker Beck’s Exodi, Blacklace, Sticht by Sticht (gah, one of these days I will loose my mind and buy their entire collection!) and Heart and Sole. There is also Zaara, where I bought the top and short pants I am wearing in the picture, Zhao shoes, Sugar Mill, Pididdle and Fukmi with their funky clothes.

Besides those, you will be able to find some less advertised stores who nevertheless offer high quality products displayed around in nicely decorated rooms.

That was the case of TenderLove, for instance, where lovers can buy the best love HUD I ever saw, with smoothly designed animations that go from cuddling to making out and obviously to sex. These animations don’t make you” jump” from one to another, instead they naturally move and melt to the next one and oh boy, do they look awesome!

There is Cihuae! with lovely jewelry that I had not visited before. Good stones perfectly assembled in original compositions, which is not found that often.

Wild & Demetra is a funny store with male and female outfits, that make you smile as you come in. And yay, I found there my favourite mannequins as well!

And Malt… which was love at first sight. Amongst all the amazing vibrant colours and the luxurious fabric textures they don’t make it easy on us shoppers to choose – and yes, our wallets come out so much lighter than when we first started the shopping spree.

Wish I knew where to start from, LOL!

No doubt, a place to visit, more than once – at spaces, maybe, so we don’t fall into bankrupcy, hehehe. I wonder if they read my mind before building such a place, for they manage to join most of all my favourites in just one place.

It may be a stupid idea, but maybe… jut maye, if different type of creators got together to develop complementary projects, both could win with the situation.

As I window shopping today, I came across some prim feet sandals I really liked. After a while, I finally gave up, at the thought of all the work I would have trying to match the prim feet to at least one of my skins. Then I remember… couldn’t skin designers and footwear designers work together ? I mean, I would love to have sandals matching my favourite skins, like Laqroki, Cupcakes, Unique, YS&YS, for instance. I bet lots of people would buy skins AND sandals that were for sale side by side, just for the sake of looking gorjeous.

I don’t know… but personally I wouldn’t mind paying 1200 L$ for a pack like that… specially if the sandals allowed several different colour options.

Same could happen, for instance, with house and furniture designers, or house and plants designers. Sometimes, we just don’t have the time to set up everything… or just don’t have the taste and prefer to have some kind of products key-in-hand, know what I mean ?

In the meanwhile… I will go on making visual love with sandals I will never buy – just because I am lazy *smiles
