Cold Weather, Colder Water

Even though I am still traveling for at least another three weeks, I wanted to sneak in on my weekend home and share some hot new releases from the month of October. Even though we’ve less than a week left, I am loving all of the fall and Halloween inspired fashions hitting the grid.

Even more so, the woodsy, lumberjack feel I get from this new outfit from the Spirit Store, as well as hair by Mina and fun poses by the talented Bouncer Criss are definitely getting me in the mood for the cooler weather that is taking forever to arrive down here. In the mean time, be sure to hit up all of the events listed below to get these goodies before they disappear with the last of the warmth this year!

The Arcade – September 2014

It’s so hard to believe that September is here and that fall is pretty much around the corner. Though the weather hasn’t started cooling off yet, it’s safe to say that fall is definitely among us, what with all the buzzing about the September (fall) round of the Arcade. With the big birthday round and the Arcade turning two this month, the designers that have been invited to participate have really knocked our socks off with some great new releases.

Though there weren’t as many apparel related items as I would have liked to see, I am nevertheless thrilled by the items up for grabs. One of my favorites this round, is the La Petite Joie Cafe Collection from 8f8. The build of the cafe itself is stunning. Warm, rich wood, amazing shadows and crisp textures. I especially love the skylight and how all of the windows can change between two version with just a click.

I spent two days decorating in and around my new cafe with some more of my favorite Arcade pieces. Well, as many as I could fit into one setting, that is. I even managed to squeeze in a few non-Arcade items as well, like this new release long modern sideboard from Molichino. With this being Aurelia’s first foray into furnishings, I must say I am suitably impressed by it and can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

It’s that time- the final countdown until the March round of the Arcade is over. *Le Sigh* It really is bittersweet.

While you still have a little over one full day before the event promptly closes, you’ve still got some shopping time left! Remember, many designers will be retiring these items after the round ends, so this will be your last chance to grab them before they’re retired.

Your taxi awaits!

Merry Christmas!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!
