Winter Wonderland

Sasy installed an ice skating rink at The Deck, so thankfully The Secret Store had me covered.  These Mint Polka Dot Ice Skates which are currently available at The Arcade and my Sarah Coat Dress in mint currently at Collabor88 are offerings for December. The skates are well done in mesh, and come in a cute variety of styles, and feature an AO as well. Play the gatcha machines at The Arcade for your chance to score this pair.  Click here to see the other skates, and items available at The Arcade.  The Sarah Coat Dress has a variety of colors and is a perfect little feminine coat for the first snow.  The Sarah Coat Dress is available in 8 colors, click here to see more about Collabor88 this month.

I’ve paired my The Secret Store goodies with Izzie’s Mesh Ear Muffs in a matching mint, they’re cute and available in 20 colors to mix and match into your winter wardrobe. I’m also wearing Izzie’s Lucie skin in Sunkissed, with raspberry lipstick, and silver eyeshadow.  I love that she has the cutest freckles, and on layer for body and face. I’m also wearing Izzie’s White Tights layered under my leggings.  TuttiFruitti made my leggings, and they are available in a variety of colors, I am wearing Color Pack 3 which features a variety of pastel colors via HUD.  I love the detail of texture on these.  I’m also wearing Fishy Strawberry’s Faux Fur Stole in white, it’s mesh and available in a variety of natural and colored furs. I felt it was perfect to keep warm with while skating. Adam n Eve recently released glove appliers for the Slink Avatar Enhancement Hands, these are the Broderie Anglais featuring a delicate eyelet pattern.  Also available at Adam n Eve leather, and opera gloves, perfect for winter, and formal wear. I’m wearing Wasabi Pills Mila hair in Gingerbread, its a cute short bobbed hairstyle, and I love this shade.

Love Missile F1-11

Love Missile F1-11

Emery made this mesh dress called Embellished Ehrmantraut for My Attic’s Pop Music theme this session. This a tight fitted dress with spike epaulettes. It’s available in eight great colors. I love the colors she used, and the detailing on the back side of the dress. I’m wearing one of three new hairstyles released by LeLutka this weekend. This mesh hairstyle is called Dolce, and is a wild ‘big hair’ style. I love how high it’s teased up, and the whispy flexi pieces that move. My accessories are these great spiked earrings from Amorous in mesh. They feature color change spikes and base. My necklaces are sunglasses on chain from Maxi Gossamer Jewelry called Positano. They come with sunglasses on necklace with two types of chains, and sunglasses raise on right on your nose. They feature click change lens and frame styles/colors. My bag is from Leverocci/Belgravia, called the Totem Bag. I love shape and how shiny it is. My leggings are from Izzie’s Patterned Tights Pack, the design is Half Stripes Outside. I’m wearing Gizza’s Studded Boots in Glam Black. I love the pattern and spikes on the back. Because wear mesh hands, I removed my wrists and wore a glove alpha to make sure my arms would fit inside my tight sleeves. It’s a skin tight dress, and my wrists with the extra mesh hands didn’t work with it. Extra body alphas from other clothing items can really come in handy, it’s a neat trick to remember.

My Attic’s February session runs through to February 28th. The theme for this session is ‘Pop Music’ and the designers, and guest designers participating have created beautiful items based on what that theme means to them.  A selection of fashion, hair, poses, accessories and props available. I hope you will join us for this event at The Deck. All items will be $95L for the duration of the event, and will then go to regular store prices afterwards. Stop by My Attic to see the many items that are available.

Splash front

SySy just released this lovely a-line handkerchief hem cocktail gown this week. It’s mesh, and gives the impression of light whispy chiffon. I love the color palette she used, specially this muted shimmering green tone. The dress amazingly just also happens to be a similar shade of Shiver in my Maitreya Gold Liaison shoes!

Splash Back

I’ve accessorized with Kungler’s Perola Set in Abalone, and Baiastice’s Mesh Clutch in Flower Juice print. My hair is new from Exile, this mesh hairstyle is called Stay the Night, and the color is Afterglow which I am just over the moon with the blonde in it. It’s a soft look, and I love how tousled it looks. I’ve chosen the teal eyeshadow, and raspberry lipstick that came with Izzie’s Givera skin to bring out more colors in my necklace, and tinted my SLink mesh hand nails a dark raspberry.

Vintage Fair – Lush Limited

Vintage Fair - Lush

Lush Limited is a ‘new to me’ store currently at Vintage Fair 2012.   After seeing them at Vintage Fair 2012, I checked out their main store to see what else they carried, and it’s an 80’s explosion of  new wave, pop, and punk seperates, and accessories.  They generously provided a review pack, and I loved the look of this outfit composed of some fun items and instead of restyling using the seperates am going to wear it as they pulled it together.  It’s a fun look, and while totally 80’s, this is still a great contemporary fun style.  The Benatar Stripes top is mesh, and has a nice form, and works well with their skinny belt.  The skinny belt is also mesh, but non rigged, so you can modify the fit.  With the Joan Leather pants, I ditched the cute pant prims that are included and finished them off with my LeLutka Shavon ankle boots in bright red.  I love how perfectly my lips clutch from Emery works with this outfit.  It’s available in several colors from reds to pinks, mine being a coral red, I tinted it a bit to match my shoes.

Amacci just released 2 new hair styles, I’m wearing Sione in Summer Blond.  This hair is awesome!  I love it to death!  It consists of a hair base, and hair attachment, which also includes a streaked version.  The streaked version has a hud that allows you to color change the streaks, plus you can remove the front downward whisps.  The hair is fierce!

Vintage Fair 2012  runs through August 29th, 2012.  For more information refer to the Chic Management site.  Vintage Fair Flickr Competition runs July 28th – August 31st.  Submit photographs that include new items featured at Vintage Fair 2012.  See Chic Management  site and Flickr Group for rules, and more information about prizes.

Alphabet Challenge-D

Alphabet Blog Challenge-D

With letter D in Willow Zander’s Alphabet Challenge I resorted to pulling out some favorite items that have been in my inventory at least a year.  My first thought was hair from Dernier Cri, check out this favorite circa Hair Fair 2010.  I couldn’t resist using Digit Darkes, whose letter D became logos for her store. She may be gone, but she’s still a favorite in my closet especially her slip dresses…worn here as a shirt, under this cute chocolate houndstooth jacket from DeeTaleZ, with my Marni skirt from DeLa. I frothed a bit at the mouth when fri.day released their Dream Catcher bags, love getting to wear them out and about.
