Purple Pleasure

I love mixing and matching old items with newer ones, and as much as I shop and often lose track of what I have in my inventory, some things tend to turn old long before I get around to wearing them. Nevertheless, digging through my stash for something I just know I bought aeons ago, is so worth it when I’ve been holding on to a piece for just the right moment to showcase it. In this case, I am referring to hair from Murray that I bought at the last round of Hair Fair back in July, and this tattoo I just had to have from Things, from the Fantasy Collective a few months back.

Butterflies Are Free to Fly

Check out these new releases from Bueno and Addams for Kustom9! I snagged these wonderfully textured jeans from Addams after the ones I bought from Monso at TMD left me feeling extremely underwhelmed. Normally, I love the pieces that creator Morphine Janick produces, but I am sad to admit that while the HUD included with them are great for different types of footwear, the overall shape and texture left much to be desired. Fortunately, I was able to get these new skinny jeans, along with fitted crop top from Bueno, both of which have fitted mesh options for the Maitreya body. Yay!

Also new this week are these Echium heels from Glamistry. Matching sunglasses are also available, though I didn’t include them this time, but they are adorable! I am really beginning to enjoy the matching duo of classy heels and couture shades and you can grab these, the latest, at Kustom9 as well.

Last, but not least, new hair from Catwa! I wasn’t sure how I would end up showing off this great new style, and finally decided on a more casual daytime look. ‘WokeUp’ features loose strands of long hair, pulled just over the shoulder in a sweet butterfly clip. A HUD is included to change the texture of the clip and what’s more- a new group gift a the Catwa mainstore offers additional butterfly clips that you can add to this style, or others.

Willow

I am in love with this dress! The moment I saw it, I knew it would be mine. In fact, we were destined for each other. I wasn’t even overly concerned about how short it is, because it is so classically gorgeous, that there is nothing even remotely trashy about it. ‘Willow’ is by Enfant Terrible and has the prettiest pearl embellishments. It just so happens to pair perfectly with the new boho bag from United Colors, both of which can be found at the new round of Shiny Shabby!

Private Picnic

I was randomly browsing the Marketplace, as I am wont to do at times, when I stumbled across this adorable ‘Pork Pie’ hat. I immediately grabbed one for both Peter and I and somehow, we managed to come up with similar outfits to show it off. He even managed to drag me shopping, of all things! It’s a break-through, I’m telling you!

Peter also happened across this ‘IDK’ event that I’ve never heard of before, but has some really great items, including these shorts by Addams. This is one designer I have never worn before, but I am definitely going to be coming back for more. I am loving both the textures and designs!

Also new is this backless (and super adorable! t-shirt from ANE and weekender bag with fun postcard print from Izzie, both for the newest round of the Liaison Collaborative! TLC also has a new build as well, by Apple Fall, so be sure to check it out! It’s stunning!
