Santa Baby

Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me
I’ve been an awful good girl
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

It’s almost here! Christmas, that is! I’ve been having loads of fun playing with all of these decorating goodies from the Arcade this round, including this full and festive Santa’s workshop from Alouette. I was even able to dress in the spirit of the little helper with this mini sweater dress from BOOM and amazingly detailed hat from Remarkable Oblivion. And don’t forget the boots: a group gift at the N-Core mainstore!

Merry Christmas everyone!

xoxo,

Cara

Summer Lovin’ @ The Arcade

If you ask Dwight what my favorite type of swimsuit is, he would tell you with a wicked gleam that it would have anything to do with ruffles! So, it goes without saying that this new bikini from Paper Doll for the Arcade was a must have for my wardrobe!

I’ve been wanting to do another retro inspired look for sometime now, ever since I saw this new Sadie hair by Truth and with Ingenue being a leader in vintage inspired looks, I knew that these new Delphine heels would be a perfect back for my ruffle-kini. That the new Shakeup ring also matched these shoes was fate!

I still can’t get over how awesome the new Ellie skin is by Tricky from Belleza. I am in love! I’ve managed to take off the #1 in exchange for the #3 (and all the rest!) and the sexy red lips and luscious Monroe beauty mark that really pulled my vintage look together. I really hope Tricky expands on this new release after the Arcade closes, because I would love to own the full line! ♥

Eboni Kahn of Hucci has these cute roadsters out for the Arcade and I swear, you can’t get a better bargain than at 50L per play. There are four RARES to collect and 15 total to win and every one is well worth the gamble!

Finally, in case you haven’t heard, I am so sad to report that Katey Coppola of Glitterati is closing the doors after five amazing years of creating poses and props in Second Life. Though she is by no means leaving the grid she will be, for the most part, retiring from creating and so everything in her mainstore is on a major markdown until the end of June. For more information on her decision, check out her flickr page (with letter) here.

Blueberry

Another round of FAIR has circulated and after the great buys I found at the last set, I eagerly rushed over to see what was new. Inspired by 10am is the Maia dress from Blueberry. I think it is so great when the textures of a particular item are good enough to really let you know that you are wearing a specific type of fabric, which this vintage boho inspired romper definitely does.

Of course I am in love with anything Siddean Munro from SLink comes out with! She is a fabulous designer and her new mesh hands are the best on the grid, so naturally I had to add this great new mesh clutch bag from Magic Nook (Inspired by 11pm @ FAIR) to compliment them. It comes in five color packs (five colors each,) with a color change bow and two metal options. It is also modify, which I think is great, as it allows you to play with the size and tints of the bag as well.

Swift & Suri

I thought I would be fun and flirty today and pose in a pair of the Mouse Ears I picked up from Auxiliary at The Arcade. For those who haven’t been stalking this venue, these Mouse Ears, at L$50 are easily one of the hottest items. They come in twelve color and bow combinations as well as four rare ones and I will admit, that it is way too easy to become addicted to getting every pair.

The event only runs a few more days, until October 15th, so if you haven’t gone already, do be sure to check out some of the addicting gachas they have to offer. For a full listing, with pictures of the items available at the Arcade, check out the Shopping Guide.

To go with my ears, I am wearing the new Swift hair from Truth, one of three new mesh releases this week. I really love this style as it comes in a new Fades Pack, mixing natural colors with a bit of fun. As I am always changing styles and colors, I really love the frequent new releases from Truth and their mesh hair never fails to exceed my expectations.
