Rockin Around The Christmas Tree

Now that it's after Thanksgiving, it's time to start decorating for Christmas!! And I started by decorating my feet with these awesome new boots from Gos!

Style - Rockin Around The Christmas Tree

The new Aviator Amelia boots are so very very perfect for the upcoming winter months! As you would expect from Gos, the boots are amazingly sculpted and the texturing is fantastic. There are 5 colors of boot, and with a single purchase you get 5 colors of socks. But if you fatpack them [and why wouldn't you?], then you get 16 sock colors! You can also choose to hide the socks if you prefer. The boots also are scripted to have a Loose or Tight fit, as shown below.

Style - Gos Amelia Boots

Run to Gos and get these boots! And in case you were wondering, there is a matching pair of boots for the guys called Yeager! Go now!

The New Convert

My husband, Aldwyn, isn't as much of a clothes horse as I am. He likes shopping [that's why I married him!] but he never quite finds anything he really gets excited to buy as far as clothing goes. When I started wearing mesh, I have a feeling he thought I was crazy nuts. In fact, I had to stomp around a bit to even get him to use a mesh viewer so he could see me in my fabulousness. But we took a little trip tonight to Hoorenbeek, and well...

Style - The New Convert

Welcome to the mesh club, baby!

He really got happy for the new Classic Jeans and so did I because, WOW! They look so GOOD on him! He didn't have to change his shape even one point! The jeans come with 8 styles of belts, too! He paired them up with Corduroy Jacket that comes with the mesh shirt. There are 3 colors of shirts with the jacket, so that's awesome! Both the jacket and the jeans come in 3 sizes, and the jeans have both low and high rises.

With my new mesh Cairo boots and mesh Lyn Cardigan from Celoe, we're a mesh-tastic couple!

Mens' clothing creators? Your mission is clear. More mesh! The guys want to shop!

Born To Make You Happy

I think we all know by now that I love mesh clothing, am I right? But what I love more than mesh clothing is my wonderful husband! We had our two month anniversary on the 18th but didn't really get to do anything because of our schedules. Last night he made it up to me by taking me on a little shopping spree at Celoe!

Style - Born To Make You Happy

As I mentioned a couple of posts ago, Celoe comes to us from the super talented LeLutka team and they've come bringing us all kinds of mesh wonderfulness! [They're in a temporary location at the moment, so I'll update this whenever they move to the real store.] I went super nuts for the new Lolong Trousers when I demoed them. These are definitely "Get your heels on, girlfriend!" pants, especially if you're short like me! But the way they sit JUST perfectly on the hips? I couldn't stop staring! The Lyn Cardigan was something that both of us knew I just had to have. It's SO very me and SO very beautiful! The Gea Top turtleneck ties everything nicely together and I adore the perfectly slouchy neck on it.

Celoe is one of those "I need all the things!" types of stores for me, and I hope you like it as much as I do!! Remember that you'll need a MESH enabled viewer to see all the fabulous clothes! Oh, and happy anniversary, baby! ♥

Welcome To Mystery

Do you have that place in SL that you can't help but travel back to again and again when you want to take a photo but you don't feel like creating a set or standing in front of a blank prim? XIV is that place for me. When I go there, I feel like I've gone on the other side of the looking glass. I wasn't sure where to take a picture in my outfit today, so I headed on over to find just the right spot!

Style - Welcome To Mystery

I woke up to a notice that G Field had some new Leg Warmers! For heels! Oh they are just so cute, I can hardly stand it! Although I have many G Field shoes, I had to pick up the Alex pumps to wear with them, just to make SURE they fit properly. And they do!

I got the leg warmers and shoes in grey because I knew today I'd be wearing the Suede Mesh Mini from Stellar today. If you pick it up from the Marketplace, it's only $55L!! Heck of a deal, folks. But be sure you get the demo first before buying, just to make sure you can fit or that you can mod your shape the way you want to make it fit. I find that it's a little more slim on me [even the size 2] than some things I've bought in mesh, but 1, I don't mind modding my shape to get things to fit the way I want, and 2, I still think I look pretty bootylicious in it!

Indian Summer

I wrote this really awesome post, but ended up losing it. I don't feel like re-typing it all out again. I'm sorry!

Style - Indian Summer

The awesome LeLutka team is gearing up to bring us new MESH goodness! Celoe is coming soon, and if you join their in world group now, you can get this cute little Chelsea dress as a gift! Celoe will be bringing us great mesh clothes, shoes and accessories very soon, so if you're not in a mesh viewer yet, I'm terribly sorry that you'll be seeing me in loads of mesh soon. Celoe, along with Mon Tissu, SLink, and Lelutka, have come up with a Standard Sizing package so that if you wear one size in one brand, you'll fit into the same size in another brand. I think that this will make wearing mesh a lot easier, especially if other brands will work with these sizes, too. Now don't think you'll be cookie cutter, either. I wear a size M, but there are some friends of mine who are in a size S and yet they are more curvy than I am. There's really a lot of room to work with! Well, unless you're very large. But sizes for XL and XXL are in the works, I've heard!

This dress was the perfect simple outfit to pair with my Fanciers Best Necklace and Earrings from Undefined Lilies! I picked these up at the Vintage Fair and have been waiting for a chance to break them out. Sooo very classy and pretty. Love love love!

Chantilly Lace

Two style posts in one day? What the heck has come over me?? But c'mon... Vintage Fair is SO GOOD, I can't help but want to show off the goodies! Plus? It's Truth hair day!

Style - Chantilly Lace

I think all of us know by now that Nena Janus of League is exceptionally talented. But what she put out for the Vintage Fair...WOW! The Vintage Lace Cardigan and the Vintage Full Lace Skirt are probably two of my most favorite finds in SL EVER! I naturally gravitate to anything lacy and pretty, so these had my name written alllll over them.

And I don't have to tell you guys how much I adore Truth, both the hair and the person, do I? His new Faith hair is almost vintage like, reminding me of a style that Veronica Lake or Rita Hayworth would have favored. The thick spill of waves over the shoulder and the sweet little flippy curl on the!

Are you guys broke yet? If not, I'm sure it's coming!

And I Look Like Donna Reed

Mmmm...more Vintage Fair goodies! I've been setting up Funky Junk's new Pasadena house that is out at the Vintage Fair for the past couple of days. It's all kinds of retro love! With Nana's TV Room Set from Hanaya, also at the Vintage Fair, it just makes you step back in time!

Style - And I Look Like Donna Reed

I was very excited to see Reale out at the Vintage Fair this year, especially with this adorable Soda dress! The skirt is a mix of sculpts and flexi, so you get nice movement, and the whole thing is really very figure flattering with the waistband and bow that hit in just the right spots.

If you haven't made it out to the Vintage Fair yet, be prepared for some lag, of course, but also be prepared to spend spend spend!! Oh! And I'll be out there tomorrow [Sunday the 13th] DJing a Sock Hop from 7pm-9pm SLT! I hope to see you guys out there for some great old music and lots of fun!

A Little Deanie

Oh, it is so good to be home! I have been itching to get back to my blog! [I know, I know, that sounds lame.] But with Collabor88 starting, and Vintage Fair coming, can you blame me? I'm amazed at the items the creators have put out for both events. It's a bad month for your wallets, but OH...such a good month for getting tons of pretty new things! This outfit reminded me, a little bit, of Natalie Wood when she played Deanie Loomis in the movie "Splendor In The Grass." Ever seen it? You should. It's fab!

Style - A Little Deanie

At the Vintage Fair, I found this beautiful Chiffon Calais dress from new-to-me store Lisa L. I'm a total sucker for lace, so I just had to snatch it right up!

The new Vintage skin from Curio is so sweet and old fashioned! With the added tattoo pencil brows, you feel like you stepped right back in time. It's perfect with the new Soft hair from Elikatira for Collabor88 this month!

Style - A Little Deanie-headshot

I have much more to blog, but for now, I must shop!

I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues

I'm supposed to be packing, but I'm procrastinating. No, I'm not going anywhere fun. My dad's having another surgery and I'll be staying over with my parents for a few days while he recovers just to help out. But I guess I can pretend it's a vacation? I'm a little blue about it, so putting together a blue outfit just seemed totally right.

Style - I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues

For Fifty Linden Friday this week, Ingenue has these great new Collette skirts. They are mesh skirts, but you don't have to worry about the fit because the skirt part is like a normal prim crotch flap, but being that it's mesh, it moves with your body and blends in with the rest of the skirt. Love love love! There are 2 colors for FLF this week, and I'm so very happy she put it out early so I could get it!!

Collabor88 for November starts on the 8th and The Sea Hole is putting out some really cute items, like this pretty little Corsage ring, bracelet, and nail polish set. I can't wait for the whole collection!

The dryer just went off so I guess it's back to packing. I'll see you guys next week!
