Carissa's Closet

Quick Change

leave a comment »

Since the alpha hair/shirt collision issue was making me crazy from my last post, I went shopping at Blueberry (so many cute things!) and picked up the Tableau Vivant buns from kustom9 and did a quick change.


Why am I saw drawn to this powdery pink color?! I’m starting to feel like I’m stuck in a loop of a similar color scheme.

For the credits, I’m only posting the changes from my previous post. You can view the credits for the other items here.

Channeling Fendi

with one comment

Not much to say other than I was inspired by the Fendi Spring/Summer 2017 campaign and runway show at Milan Fashion Week. Also alpha textured hair + alpha textured top = pain in the butt! Does anyone have a solution to this problem that doesn’t require me editing the alpha masking on the hair?

Cari Tetra

When I first came back to SecondLife last month (after an almost 4 year hiatus!!) the very first hair I purchased was from a new-to-me brand of TETRA at the January Uber event. I loved the style and it had the perfect silky, shiny texture (which any SL blonde knows is hard to come by).

I was on a mission for more hair and visited the TETRA shop. While I couldn’t find any more hair styles at the time, I did load up on a few clothing purchases. Yesterday I put together this fierce combination of an open backed jacket and silk track trousers. The color change heels from Blueberry were also a steal and really vamped up the look.

The hair that started it all:

Memories of Mumbai

leave a comment »


I picked up another fantastic outfit at Collabor88, by the very talented Zaara Kohime. I’ve never dressed Cari up in what I think of as traditional Indian style, mainly because Strawberry Singh has cornered that market with her impeccable taste and artistry.

I actually visited India for the first time a few weeks ago and I just fell in love with the people, the food, and the culture. Zaara’s churidar and kurta combos, in their beautiful colors, inspired me to recreate the exotic look of the gorgeous women I shared my week with while in Mumbai. I didn’t want to come home!

I just adore the simplicity of this look. SO many pretty things at Collabor88 this month and this top from Tres Blah was an inspiration.


I love that it works as a tunic or as a dress.

Just Dance

I’ve been so busy snapping pics and uploading them to Flickr that I’m behind on blogging.

I have noticed that a lot of bloggers use Flickr as their complete blogging platform, but I still favor my WordPress site for publishing my thoughts and to supply credits.


I have no idea if anyone even still reads this!

I knew I wanted to create another post with “mirror effect”, and after spending way too much time trying to get angles right to create a mirror image in Photoshop, I discovered that I could accomplish this within SL! With water!


It did feel kind of goofy to turn my building props and pose stand on end but I love the way the pics came out.

I’m still loving my Lelutka Simone Bento head, but I can’t stop tweaking my sliders. I haven’t quite found the combination that captures the “Cari-ness” of my system head. I’ll get there though! Practice makes perfect right?

In the meantime, I picked up some cute things from the Uber event and a really pretty skin applier from Izzie’s.

Still facing that learning curve and reteaching myself SL photography skills. Slowly but surely!
