Someday, Somewhere

Last month I was away from SL for about a week while my daddy recuperated from another surgery, and I had my husband collecting things for me. Of course, when I got back, I was too tired to go back and look at everything, so imagine my squeal of surprise and happiness when I discovered this gorgeous Ingenue dress just waiting patiently in my inventory!!

Style - Someday, Somewhere

I believe the Ava dress came out for the Vintage Fair, and you can see that it is completely vintage inspired. The tight fitted waist, the sweet little peplum, and the slim skirt that Ingenue does so so well are all completely fantastic. You can't see it in the picture, but the back dips down a bit in a V shape and there is a zipper. It's just so so classy! Parts of the dress are mesh, so if you can't see mesh yet... well, sucks to be you, I guess.

Oh! And Nardcotix is having a big End Of The Year sale! 70% off the whole store! You can pick up these lovely strappy Edith heels for a SONG! I find the feet in these shoes to be cute and soooo easy to tint! Especially for me because one of the presets in the HUD matches my skin perfectly!

I think I need to go do a little more shopping!

A Date With Santa

Since 2008, I've been having a winter guest on my island. Of COURSE I'm talking about Santa! He swings by after the first snowfall [something about the North Pole simply being crazy around December] and he hangs out until Christmas Eve. Since that is tomorrow and at some point during the day he'll be taking off, tonight is our special date night. And lucky for me, G Field sent the most beautiful winter gift!

Style - A Date With Santa

If you're in the subscriber group, then you should have received the very pretty 2011 Holiday dress & necklace today. As with everything G Field makes, it's gorgeous! G Field remains on my top 10 list of stores that I love and I don't see that changing any time soon.

This'll be my last post until after Christmas, so Merry Christmas, everyone!! Or Happy Hanukkah! Or just Happy Holidays! ♥

Now if you'll excuse me, Santa awaits!

Something's There

I'm in love with the Glee & Showtunes stations on Pandora lately, so I'm sorry if my next 20 posts have the title of some Broadway musical song. But this is a good one, because with all the fabulous things that are out lately, something IS there for everyone!

Style - Something's There

Collabor88 is still going strong this month and if you haven't been by yet, you neeeeed to go! You can pick up great things, like the Killiney boots from FIR & MNA. I just love these! There is a pair for men as well, and these are MESH boots.

Speaking of Collabor88, there is a lot of good furniture out there this time around, like the Deetz Fireplace set from Cheeky Pea and the Patchwork & Pipes bed from Kari. I love that the curtains and rug from the Soft Exposure living room set from Barnesworth Anubis that we found at last month's Collabor88 work perfectly! I am also totally in love with The Snowy Cabin artwork on the wall from Funky Junk. The snow really falls! You can find it at the Funky Junk mainstore location, or at The Nest. It's no copy, so great for transferring for gifts!

And hello? Do you see my hair? It's a new MESH hair from Wasabi Pills called Cherry. It's so thick and lush and it's nice that it doesn't dig into my chest. You can't see it here, but in the back, there's a low ponytail. I wish I had this much thick hair in RL!

Have I talked your ear off? Are you ready to shop? Go now!

Winter's Edge

I LOVE the 7th of the month. Want to know why? Because it's the day before Collabor88 starts!! Yeah baby! This month's theme is a great one, too. Winter's Edge - The edgier side of winter, harsher than the soft exposure of last month. It's fab! It's also the Collabor88 Prom for our designers! Each designer has picked another creator to be their date to accompany them this month, so that means DOUBLE the things for you to buy!

Check out the Downtown Cathedral Catwalk from Trompe Loeil!

Style - Winter's Edge

This is a MESH skybox, so perfect for photos or if you're into living in a different sort of setting than a traditional house. You can't tell in the photo, but there is snow actually falling behind the windows! I just adore it so much! The skybox is mod/copy and 91 prims.

I'm wearing the Love skin by Illusory in the Winter's Edge makeup. Check it out!

Style - Winter's Edge - Close Up

Pretty pretty pretty! From Ingenue for Collabor88, I'm wearing the Cyd dress, which is around the neck halter style and has a slim mesh skirt. If you haven't tried one of the mesh skirts from Ingenue, this is THE time to get one because I promise you won't be able to stop looking at your behind while you're wearing it. And Caroline's Jewelry is with us this month with the very lovely Gunmetal & Gems necklace and earrings set. So gorgeous!

Collabor88 starts tomorrow and I can't wait for you all to see all the greatness!

The Air of December

Mmm...do you hear that? No, it's not the sound of Santa's sleigh bells. It's the sound of more new mesh things! And new hair!

Style - Air of December

Adam n Eve are getting into the mesh clothing game and have brought us this super cute Rhia dress! A cute tartan minidress, it is sleeveless and has a crisp white collar. The dress style is simple, which I LOVE because it means I can dress it up and down in many ways! Although AnE do not do Standard Sizing, I find that the fit of the AnE M size is almost exactly like the Standard Sizing M, if that gives you any indication of how the sizing goes, and there are 5 sizes included so you can get the best fit.

I woke up today to people squealing over the new Quirky hair at Elikatira and I rushed right over to demo. It was like a plurk party when I got there! But with good reason, because this loose braided pigtailed hair is just too cute. I did stretch mine to be bigger, though, since my head is weirdly shaped and I found it to be a little too close to my head.

Time to shop!

Once Upon A December

We recently set up our winter park on the island, and I'm so happy with it, I want to be outside all the time! Luckily for me, there are warm things to wear because I just can't be out in the snow without proper clothing!

Style - Once Upon A December

I happened upon new-to-me store Severed Garden last night while browsing marketplace. I hopped on over to the mainstore and fell in LOVE with the Dana boots and the Priska hat and hair! These are no modify items, which I know might turn some of you off, but there are convenient little HUDs to change the colors of your boots and socks, hat and hair. My only real complaint is that I would like to be able to resize the boots separate of the socks, but I managed to make them fit and they are fairly inexpensive, so it all works out!

Pose store STaTus is participating in the Royal Living Magazine Snowman Hunt and fitting to the title, they've put out this cute Snowman Lover. There are 10 poses in the snowman, and who doesn't love poses and snowmen, am I right? This is a PAY hunt, and each hunt item costs $45L. But I'm sure multiple blogs will have all the items, so you can pick and choose what you want.

I'm off to play in the snow some more!
