What wine goes with Captain Crunch?

I don't really drink at all, but I felt like there just HAD to be wine bottles on my new Cabinet Hutch by Trompe Loeil for Collabor88. But don't ask me what wine goes with what food. I'd never be able to tell you.

Style - What wine goes with Captain Crunch?

SySy just released her new Rayures pants. Total love! I do so love both pinstripes and wide legged pants. The pants come in both lengths for heels and flats.

All I can think about is cereal now, so I'll go eat, and you go shop!

It is better to be looked over than overlooked.

What could be happening this weekend? Hmmm... could it be... NEW GOS SHOES??

Style - It is better to be looked over than overlooked

If you haven't heard the squealing of shoe lovers over the past couple of weeks as the teases for Gos's new line have been revealed, then you must have had your music up too loud. How gorgeous are the new Mae platform pumps?? I am so in love with them!

But what I'm even MORE in love with is how Gos has made skin tinting a total snap! With his new Gos Boutique OneTime HUD, you will just go to a website, pick your skin, sync your HUD and boom! Perfectly tinted feet! The HUD holds up to 5 skins at a time, so if you have 5 favorite skins that you switch between, when you change your shoes you can just click on your saved skin and that's that. The OneTime HUD will work with all the new shoes and feet, so you won't have to worry about finding the right HUD to work with this pair of shoes or that pair of feet. Gos has 300+ skins in the database currently, so unless you're wearing some totally obscure skin, you should be able to find your perfect match. And of course you can still do a manual match, but really? You most likely won't have to!

The part I really like is that the feet have a "sheath" that goes up your leg a bit so the skin blends almost seamlessly without the highlight of your skin fading off into a solid color. Plus, you can turn the sheath off if you're wearing your shoes with pants. Love!

Be sure to join the Gos Boutique in world group to keep up to date on all the new beauties, get in early to get the shoes, and to get 10% off all Gos Boutique purchases. But do it quick because it won't be free forever!

Working For The Weekend

Back when I used to work in offices, I liked outfits that I could take from day to night with a few little adjustments. My outfit today reminds me of something I would have worn back then.

Style - Working For The Weekend

I decided to hit up two new-to-me stores today! I know, after my Coldlogic kick, it's probably a shock! :-p First up, I hit VinCue and got the Knotty tank. It's so cute! I love the little tie in the front. The cool thing about this is that while I'm wearing it basically solid here, it comes with a HUD and while the top part stays whatever color you buy, the bottom has 9 colors to choose from. Love!

Then I ran over to Mutresse and picked the Simona trousers. You can never ever go wrong with a classic pair of trousers that have a flattering cut!

Zaara just released new mesh jewels! The Atiriya jewelry set is just total love. I'm wearing the necklace and a bracelet, but there are earrings as well. I didn't put them on because with my new [and so super cute!] Lavinia hair from Truth, they wouldn't have shown.

I want to know about more new-to-me stores! What are some of your favorite little places that might not be well known yet?

Dressing For Jesus [With Love To December!]

We were having a discussion on plurk last night about an upcoming fair that caters more to the more trampy side of SL and my friend December said, "I need a Dressing For Jesus fair." See, not everyone in SL WANTS to have their "boobadoos" out all of the time. Once in a while, SURE!! But all of the time? Nooo. Some of us want clothes that are cute and cover our bodies. Not that there's anything wrong with having your bits and pieces all out there for the world to see constantly if that's REALLY what you want out of SLife, but for some of us, we like simple clothing that is both lovely and modest.

I dedicate this post to December, someone who proves that you can be adorable and beloved in both worlds without your "Virginia and Cleveland" on display. ♥♥♥

She Refused To Be Bored Chiefly Because She Wasn't Boring

One of my pet peeves is when someone says they're bored a lot. Really? With everything that's going on in the world, you're constantly bored? What the heck is wrong with you?? How can you be bored?? Well, there's no WAY you can be bored today because Coldlogic just released new clothes!

Style - She Refused To Be Bored Chiefly Because She Wasn't Boring

The Lovern dress is totally a love for me! I love how it's the perfect blend of fancy and casual. I paired it up with the new Hill mesh leggings. These leggings are very awesome in that they come with 3 different cuffs so you can wear with different shoes. I'm wearing them in cuff #3, which is about mid-calf. I did have to do some minor editing to my leg warmers from G Field to fit the leg over the legging, but truly, they were very small edits. They also come with leggings for dresses that are much slimmer on the hips. Don't get scared like I did when you try on your regular size and find that you're muffin topping like crazy!

Time to do more shopping!

You Were Only Waiting For This Moment To Arise

I love when new stuff comes out. I really do! And I love it even more when it's pretty pretty pretty!

Style - You Were Only Waiting For This Moment To Arise

Ava is a new skin from Belleza, and I fell in love with it at first demo! In fact, and I hardly EVER say this about a skin, but I have not seen anyone in it who doesn't look amazing. If you fatpack it, you get the whole lipstick bundle, too, although you could just buy the plain skin and then the lips and then use whatever eye makeups you like. It's quite versatile! I fatpacked, of course, because it's what I do.

Truth released new hair and Edith may be my favorite of the three new releases. It's a gorgeous long hair topped with a casual knit cap. More hats and more accessories on hairs, please!!

Cae is in Collabor88 this month and she's spoiling us with the loopy swoopy Guinevere set. Look how cool the necklace is! And the earrings, which you can't see under my hair, have not left my ears since the first of the month.

Go do some shopping!

There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them.

Ever had one of those weeks where all you want to do is kick off your shoes, take off your pretty dress, and sink into a hot bath? Oh yeah, totally that kind of week!

Style - There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them.

If you get lost, you can always be found.

I love when I can put a new skin on and not have to change a thing about my shape. It's VERY VERY rare that it happens because not all skins are going to look good on me. In fact, most don't unless I tweak my shape to get it to look right. Of course, I'm tweaking my shape every week anyway. I'm definitely not in the "NEVER TOUCH MY SHAPE" crowd! So I was super happy to try on Adam n Eve's new Siobhan skin last night and feel pretty instantly - with no tweaking!

Style - If you get lost, you can always be found

It's a different look for me, since I tend to look more like jailbait [Y que?] but I love it! The lips...oh my god, these lips! Just kissably soft! Also, if you've never tried an Adam n Eve skin before, trust me when I say the body is just as wonderful as the face!

Truth put out some new hairs a few days ago, including the aptly named Winter. I love the style of this one, but what really makes it special is the scarf! I love when hairmakers put scarves or hats or other accessories on the hairs because you all know how hard it is to have to mod stuff and try to get it to fit right! Now, if Mr. Hawks will release this hair without the scarf...

Happy shopping, everyone!

I Think I'll Go For A Walk Outside Now

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you guys had a great one! I love the start of a new year - everything is shiny and fresh. And happily, the start of 2013 brings us a new round of FaMESHed!

Style - I Think I'll Go For A Walk Outside Now

The new Libby shirts from E! are just my style! Little argyle sweater vest over a pretty blouse? Yes PLEASE! You can choose either a black or a white shirt, too.

I really like the Charlie pants from Rebel Hope, also at FaMESHed. Sometimes you need a nice, classic, plain pair of pants to wear and these fit the bill perfectly! Oh, and even though you can't see it in my picture, the butt on these pants is cute cute cute! The matching Charlie bag was also a must-have!

FaMESHed lasts until almost the end of the month, so you have plenty of time to go...but why would you wait?!
