Winter Winds

First, let me tell you where I got the style inspiration for these photos. I was searching for a hair to wear with this outfit and i wasn’t finding quite what i wanted, when Oakley Foxtrot posted THIS BLOG POST on Plurk. I was like, “OOH! I have that hair!” I also really liked the snow idea, so I looked up a tutorial on how to make snow! So, thank you, Oakley. You totally inspired me.

Now, the third annual With Love Hunt is just around the corner (starts November 30th)! Want to see some of the stuff you’ll find in the hunt? Yeah, I thought so.

Take a gander at this beautiful coat.  Everything in this hunt is valued at or over 400L, but is available for just 10L. This jacket. 10L. Dude.

Now, please direct your attention to the skin on my face here.  Yeap. I drooled a little, too. Again, 10L. Ten stinking Linden. You’re not going to miss this hunt, are you?

From the CHIC Blog:

“The third annual With Love Hunt returns November 30th gridwide! It will begin at Cheeky Pea’s mainstore at 4pm SLT. We will post a list of hints and slurls to the stores nearer the time. There will be 76 boxes containing a product worth 400L or more for sale at 10L in each participating store.”

Sweet Disposition

I have a secret.

Ok, no I don’t… well, I do have secrets but I’m not telling you those. The secret I’m talking about is The Secret Store, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite stores in SL. This store has both non mesh clothes and an increasing number of mesh items. I love the sweet, fun style and shopping there makes me feel like I am in on some SL fashion secret.

The newest release from The Secret Store is this adorable mesh mini skirt. It comes in seven solids, seven different color versions of the bird print version pictured below, and three other cute fabrics. The bow belt is also its own attachment, so you can wear the skirt with or without!

I also must mention these shoes from Ingenue. Just look at them. So cute. They’re available in tons of colors at Collabor88 this month.

This photo was taken on Cupcake Sim which is seriously one of the cutest places on the grid, and a fabulous place to go shopping because there are about a zillion wonderful stores represented there. That’s where I found this fun ruffly shirt from Kyoko Couture. If you’ve never been there or it’s been a while, you really should go check it out.

So, is your list full enough for now? I hope so! Have fun shopping!

SO, hopefully you’re aware that faMESHed has started its’ new round…? Well, if not, now you are.

When the dust settles…

Super quick post today, as Saturdays are almost always busy busy busy in RL for me…

Foppish! Have you heard of it? I hadn’t until I was stalking, er… browsing people’s photos on Flickr and came across a few with these adorable sweaters. I had to go check the store out, obviously, because… I might possibly be addicted to sweaters. This version with the skulls is actually a group gift and the group is free to join, SO… no excuse, really. Go grab one. There are a couple other patterns available, as well, and they are darling so make sure you check those out, too. The whole store is very very cute.

The only thing I noticed when trying things on was that their sizes run a little different than Standard Size, but a few little mods or trying a different size isn’t really a big deal to me when the clothes are this cute. I usually wear a Standard XS and this jacket fits me perfectly in size XXS.

Have a great weekend!

Sweater: Foppish- Wooly Gown Coat *Group Gift- free to join!*

Hey guys! I have been so busy in RL the last week, and I’m super behind on blogging. Fear not, though! This week is “get caught back up” week!

Ok, so let me show you this new release from fri.day! The Kristen.Jacket is closely tailored and has really cute button loop closures. Underneath the jacket, I’m wearing the new Cliquester.Tank, which got me to thinking since the tank colors are all named after cliques. What clique were you in when you were in school?

I also need to tell you about two more things. One, is this realllly neat ring. It’s by *sMoov*, and it is super cool. When you click it, it plays music! There are different versions of the ring in the store on the Marketplace.

Also, these shoes- they’re the RARE color in the Ingenue gatcha at The Arcade. Ready to hate me? I got them on the first try! I was super excited.

HUGE Sale @ [elikatira]

Guys, I am SO excited. I should be writing this post in all caps, but… I’ll try to not be *that* annoying…

You may or may not know that I absolutely adore [elikatira]. I have been wearing [elikatira] and before that ETD for longer than I’ve been Maribel Button. So, I have to tell you about the HUGEMUNGOUS sale going on at [e] right now!

I usually don’t but multiple hairs at once. Normally, I just grab them as I need them for looks, but I could not help myself… I bought 5 hairs in the same visit the other day because… how could I not? If you’re a hair lover like me, you CANNOT pass up this sale. Every single hair, all the shoes, everything in the store is 70% off. That’s insane, no? Go. It’d be fiscally irresponsible for you NOT to go but all the things. Think about it. Grab a calculator.

Here’s one of the hairs I grabbed the other day, called Rush:

Go. Seriously, go. Now.
