Dreams of rainy days and nights up late by the fireplace

The Arcade Photography Contest - Coral Lacey

This’ll be my last post of 2014 so I thought I’d make it a festive one! I’ve used a bunch of items from December’s Arcade round, as well as Christmassy goodies out at TLC. There’s far too much newness for me to talk about, and all of it is pretty amaze but noteworthy mentionables definitely include this beautiful tree from Anc Ltd at TLC’s The Garden, as well as the fun Pixicat onesies available still at The Arcade. There’s a lot going on in this pic, so don’t forget you can click the image to see it bigger on Flickr!

I’m off now for RL vacation and family time, I’ll be back in January with some exciting news that I’ll finally be able to share with you.

I hope everyone enjoys the holidays and has a happy new year. See you in 2015!

Tomorrow is cancelled, let the clocks be reset

I have a LOTD for you guys which I just can’t get enough of. This hair from Clawtooth…in my eyes, it couldn’t be more perfect. The tousled locks and the scarf that wraps around them makes it super appealing to me and great for pictures. I’m also beyond excited with the updates to Clawtooths blondes! I admit before that I never full felt like they sat right on me, but with the “Bodacious blondes” pack now available, I know I’ll be buying more and more.

Also, yay for new fur jackets! I am so happy that Birdy released one at C88 this round and I don’t mind admitting that I hope other designers follow suit soon too. I’m not one of those people who thinks I only need one of something and like to see a variety of similiar items even. Same applies for things like jeans! I’ll never have enough, which is why it was great to see these new ones released from Lumiere at FaMESHed last week.

My turtle neck top is a recent release from the new brand Seul, out now for this months round of Uber. It’s long in the back and cropped in the front, making for a stylish and unique look. To finish this whole outfit off, I added the new, adorable Mina heels from Reign, and the Tassel bag from Zenith, out at Anybody and The Arcade respectively.

Snow Day

C88 opened it’s doors today to a fabulously cosy round for December. I’m wearing the new, oversized cape from Pixicat that you can pick up there, along with it’s fur hood. This matched perfectly with the Snowdrift hair from Tableau Vivant, which has got to be one of this months must have hair purchases. It’s a great style to wear cosied up with a sweater and jeans, or dressed up for a party night. Either way you’ll get plenty of use out of it!

LaGyo released two gorgeous collections for C88 as well, this adorable bow headband and the faux fur clutch are part of them. There are a ton of other great little accessories too, all to help you get in that festive spirit!

I’m also wearing the new skinny, ripped jeans from Emery and the Navajaro fringe boots from JD, both of which are winter staples that you can grab at this month’s round of FaMESHed.

I’ve gone a little bit fantasy for my last couple of pics I know, but today’s one happened because We <3 RP opened a few days ago, with a jam packed round for December! I adore this petal hairpiece from Zibska which is made even better by the "orbit" attachment of flying petals that you can wear as an optional add on, it really gives it that little extra uniqueness and is great for picture taking.

I've taken a couple of pictures before where I've Photoshopped wings in that I wasn't wearing in world, but the ones in this snapshot you can pick up at We <3 RP too. (You can see the original picture here if you’re interested). They’re made by Sweet Revolutions and are even animated to twitch a little, great touch for RP’ers who are looking for realism, although I would’ve liked to have been able to turn that off for taking pics. Either way they’re a great item if you’re looking to create a fantasy outfit.

Other recent items I’m wearing are the Belleza Eva skin, which you can find at Uber for their Vogue theme as well as this big, wavy Vivi hair from Truth.

Hope everyone isn’t too broke after the events that opened in the past week!

Who wants to be right as rain

I’ve been a bit MIA lately but this tends to happen around this time of year for me. So my posts might be a little less frequent than I’d like for the next month or so.

Gonna keep this short and sweet for you, with a couple of new items from Uber – this sleek hair by Wasabi Pills fits the “Vogue” theme perfectly. I’m also wearing the new Sia II skin that was Glam Affair’s item this month, it’s not actually blue, that’s just the power of SL windlights! But it is super pretty.

Last new thing is the headpiece also from Glam Affair, available now at FaMESHed. Perfect for creating a snow queen look!

An outdoorsy LOTD for you today, I headed on over to my favourite location – Neva Sky Villi – for this autumn pic.

Mostly I just wanted to show you guys this new sweater dress from Bueno that’s out now at Kustom9. With it’s form fitting shape, it’s easy to layer with vests or large jackets and works perfectly with leggings, stockings or bare legs. Sweater dresses are always versatile and simple to style in these colder months, so it’s an easy purchase!

Quick LOTD for you guys with lots of new items and a bunch that were released last week at C88. I’ve only just gotten round to shop there but I really love the Modern Alchemist theme that’s going on.

Little Bones are participating as a guest and this is one of THREE hairs that you can find from them there. Big curls and a hat included, it was love at first sight for me. The cardigan from Emery is a great staple item for my inventory, honestly I can never resist a cardi. Any designer that makes one, is pretty much guaranteed to get Ls from me. This one was easy to pair with the laced up pants from Ison.

Also from this witchy round of C88 are the necklace and clutch from LaGyo. As usual LaGyo have released a complete set that is perfectly themed for the event and these are just a couple of the unique, inspired pieces you can pick up. The bookcases in the background can be found there too, made by Lark they come with and without decor.

The top under my cardi is the metal top from Pixicat, released today at the main store in a selection of colours there are also a blue and green coloured version available for FLF, today only! Don’t miss out on that bargain and make sure you visit to pick it up.

Finally I added the Roche fringed boots from Baiastice that are out at November’s round of FaMESHed. I was ecstatic when I saw these, I do love me some fringe in fall! They’re super easy to dress up and down too.

Hope everyone has a great weekend, lots more events that open in the next couple of days so happy shopping!
