Tripping on acorns

Creators Pavilion is one of my favorite shopping districts.  While I was perusing the winter sale there, I came across several items I had to have.  These pants from B&G came with both a black and gray pair and prim leg parts for only 50L.  The tights were 30L for a 10 pack at G^G. Although this sweater from Unknown Boutique wasn't on sale, I really liked it, and think it's still a bargain at 90L for a variety of layer options and choice to wear with or without the shirt underneath.

Merry Christmas !!!

Since Fio probably got swamped in Christmas activities and there was noone else available to make a Christmas post, the Christmas elf herself decided to do a quick post.
I know, I probably should write more, but after all the hunts during the last few weeks, the sales and of course eating and drinking too much, I rather feel like resting on my elf tree.

Anyway, a happy Christmas time to everyone!

I stole a candy cane

I saw this dress at Anuenue while doing the footprint hunt.  Just as I was about to buy it, I noticed it was in the lucky chair and two letters later, it was mine!  It comes with 2 prim skirts - one flexi and one sculpty as well as a pair of gloves.

Stuck in a sand trap

It's not often I leave a good hunt to go shopping, but when I came across this sweater from Yome Shoujo at the Albato hunt, I teleported directly to the main store.  I immediately fell in love with the quirky clothing and colorful store, making it difficult not to buy everything in it. I purchased several items, including this sweater and dress, and plan to go back soon.

Pocketful of lima beans

With all the hunts and holiday gift giving going on, I really shouldn't have the need to shop. When I came across this sweater and these shorts, I couldn't help myself, though.  The sweater, from MNK Shop, comes in two versions - the one I'm wearing below and a longer one with a belt.  It also comes with a black shirt to wear underneath (not worn).  The shorts I found in Sen 2 while wandering around a shopping plaza and I immediately tp'd to the main store, where there are a lot of cute items.  I particularly like the back pockets and the waistband (not visible here) on these shorts.

My friend the porcupine

I've been in a sort of girly mood lately, where I'm drawn to wearing dresses/skirts.  I immediately fell in love with the colors in the Fall Foliage (dead leaves) dress from Pididdle and decided to pair the skirt with Artilleri's turtleneck sweater.  I'm a huge fan of Sway's Creations and was thrilled to learn about the daily Advent gift hunt. These cute antlers were today's gift and I like how they add to the overall Christmasy look of my outfit.

Frostbitten tongues

I just realized that my av has been walking around looking like Michael Jackson!!  Why didn't anyone tell me!?!?!  I've always struggled with getting the face to look like I'd like it to, but familiarity must have made me immune to the recognition of plastic surgery gone horribly awry!  It wasn't until I was given this soon to be released skin by Pink Outfitters that I decided to change my shape.  After getting accustomed to my new appearance, I looked back with horror at my old one.  It's like looking at old photos and wondering what on earth you were thinking when you proudly sported that mullet.  Sigh. Anyway, onto the post...  This dress from Twee is one of my all time favorites.  I always thought of it as a summery dress and usually paired it with red sailor-ish accessories. For today, I chose cooler tones, including silver metallic tights and shoes, to create a more wintery look.  It sort of reminds me of an icicle.

I vowed I wouldn't buy anything new until I seriously cleaned out my inventory.  Amid the deletion of some 700+ items, I came across some free dresses I got from Cupcakes (now M&R Cupcakes) a while ago, but never wore.  The bottom of the Lori dress works perfectly as a skirt and looks cute with these fantastic shoes from Nonko, also which I've never worn.  The cape and gloves are part of a free dress set from Bijou (I'm not sure if they're still there, but it's worth taking a look).  Yes, the shirt is new, but I didn't go shopping (I swear!!); it was sent out to the CKS Designs subscribomatic group yesterday. Although unintentional, I noticed that many components of this outfit were free.  I wonder what else I'll find when I tackle that inventory again...

Mud pie

There's something about the autumn and winter months that brings out the kid in me.  The cool, crisp air makes me want to do things like jump in a big pile of leaves or go on an outdoor adventure.  This outfit was inspired by such feelings.  This hair, a gift from BP as part of the MnM hunt, is adorable.  I especially love the loose strands - they add a sense of playfulness.  The sweater from Skin Flicks looks so cozy and warm, perfect for a day of frolicking outdoors!

She slurps soup with a straw

Today's outfit is made up of some of my favorite new things (or new to me, at least) and old things.  I love this new hair from DP yumyum and the color change scarf from Candy Nail.  The jewelry is beautiful and fantastically detailed and worth much more than the bargain prices (earrings are a group gift from NoLabel and the ring is only 30L at SyDS!!).  These boots, originally from Last Call (but now at Jaywalk), are still a wardrobe staple.  The Surf Co. tank dates back to my newbie days, but is actually still wearable!

Cutie patootie, I want to squeeze him!

Today I came across quite possibly the cutest av ever... and my first thought really was "I want to squeeze him!"  Because I didn't know him at all and we speak different languages (I can only imagine how "squeeze" would be translated!), I refrained from making such a request.  I did, however, get out my English to Japanese translation tool and ask if I could take his picture for this blog.  Luckily, he agreed.

Taro Bosatsu does not look like the typical male av (if there is such a thing).  I love his quirky sense of style (how cute are the flowers on his hat!?!?!) and the fact that he doesn't look like he's pumped full of steroids.  I later learned that he is the owner of lalalalab SIM, has a small shop in Creators Pavillion, lalala lab shop, and a blog (in Japanese).

Coughing up flies

Oh how I love Dolly Gwynneville.  She told Naith Smit of Naith Smit Designs to get in touch with me about blogging some of his clothes, and I was happy to oblige (ok, so I totally stole that from her post).  He sent me a pack of his Women's Open Office Shirts and I really like them. They are very good quality and well detailed.  The collar and arms parts are nicely done too, but if they look wacky here that's only because I'm a big dork and didn't properly modify them. The other great thing about this shirt is its versatility.  While Naith's shop has more of an urban and gritty feel to it, this shirt translates well to a variety of styles, including the one below.

Oh, Mr. Grant

I've liked this shirt since it was first released not too long ago, with one exception: its length. In general, I prefer shirts that reach the waist of my pants (yes, even with a perfectly flat SL stomach). London (Dailey of Pink Outfitters) tells me I'm weird and wouldn't make a longer version despite my pathetic begging. I know the covered belly and sweater coat don't make for the sexiest outfit, but at least it's.... warm(?).

She has a pet armadillo

A lot of the outfits I put together here are goofy and not necessarily ones I'd wear in my real life.  This is one I would, though.  I particularly like the satin camisole by Envy.  The texture is realistic and there are no gaps in the ruffles when they move.  The necklace and earrings are from Kraftika, where I wanted to buy everything in the store.

Pink flamingos on the front lawn

I never thought the day would come when I'd get sick of shopping.  Of course, I gorged myself on all those Halloween hunts like too much turkey on Thanksgiving, so I shouldn't be all that surprised.  The feeling was short-lived, however, as I got notice of ETD's wonderfully fantastic sale.  Amazingly it wasn't too difficult to get in, my shopping zeal intact.  The great thing about ETD, unlike turkey, is that you can never get too much.

There's a hole in my pocket

Don't snort the ketchup

I know I use the word "cute" way too much, but how can I not call this dress from Swallowtail cute?  You'd think that with all the Halloween hunts and gift giving going on, my shopping urges would be satiated. Instead, I saw this dress while doing the Albero & Cioccolata Pumpkin Festival Treasure Hunt and had to have it.  Ugh, I'm such a victim of commercialism (OK, well maybe not victim, exactly, since no one is dragging me from store to store and forcing me to buy things, but it makes me feel better to blame external forces sometimes).

Window shopping

Part of the fun of SL is doing things I wouldn't ordinarily do in RL. This applies not only to impossible feats, such as flying, but some of the outfits I wear as well.  Today's post isn't about that, however. You see, when I put on this new coat from DP Serendipity (also in brown), my first thought was, "I need this in RL!!!"  The new sweaters and socks (in 11 different colors) look so cozy, they had me imagining myself curled up in a chair reading a book or just being lazy. Unfortunately, I don't think Masuri Dryke, owner of DPS, has any plans to make me a RL wardrobe, so I'll just have to continue to wear and admire the one she provides me with here.

Who ate the mothballs?

When I decided to do some posts on Halloween costumes, I immediately thought of BareRose. It's a store I really like and and where I always find at least one thing to buy.  I'll be honest, however, and admit that I don't quite understand a lot of the outfits there.  While I admire the quality and creativeness it must have taken to think up and make them, I often have no idea under what circumstance or in what situations one would wear them.  The names of these outfits don't usually provide me with any clues either.  The outfit for today's post isn't specifically a Halloween costume by BareRose standards, but it sure works for me as one.  It comes with two hat options (with or without bats), a staff (not shown) and in four colors: black, red, orange, and pink (shown below), all for 160L.

A spoonful of sugar

I finally stayed in HappyMood long enough for everything to completely rez for me.  I knew it had beautiful things, but seeing everything all at once actually took my breath away.  It makes me think of a perfect blend of nature, purity, whimsy, and playfulness. Today's post is inspired by that.

Monkeying around

It's no secret that DP Serendipity is one of my favorite stores. Usually I rush right over as soon as new items are released, but somehow I missed the notice the other day. Lucky for me, Masuri Dryke let me know by dropping them in my inventory. As usual, her designs are fabulous. The Shantung Silk gown is absolutely gorgeous. I love the texture and the sculpted leg parts of the 801 jeans. The Monkey Business tees are so cute and come in tons of layer combinations (I love that!).
