Fresh for Summer

So, even though I’ve been out with an awful cold or some such thing for a few days now, my blogging heart was having some majoy shopping withdrawals. So, I sneaked on in and managed to grab a few great new pieces from the Kustom9 and Shiny Shabby events for one of my favorite, and classic boho inspired looks.

This new hair from Tableau Vivant is also right up my alley, with long, luscious locks in a flowing style. The original version comes with a texture changeable scarf, but I managed to modify it in exchange for a pretty flower crown instead.

The weather here has been insane, already in the 90s! I hope the rest of you are as ready for summer!

Pocket Full of Posies

I’ve been wandering around SL for a few days now in this beautiful, frilly new dress from Valentina E. and my new Glamistry heels that match it perfectly and trying to find a place to take pictures.

I happened upon ‘Done Wiv a Twist’ and landmarked it last week, waiting for the opportune moment to come back and snap a few pictures. The pretty pinks and purples of this sim made today the perfect time.

If you haven’t been, ‘Done Wiv a Twist’ is a beautifully decorated half-sim with a dreamy Asian-inspired theme, tons and tons of flowers and a really pretty chinese lantern display that lights up over the water. It kind of reminded me of that scene from Tangled and then I got all weepy, but anyway- it really is a must see place.

Just a Little Time

I love the start of each new month and the refresh of some of my favorite events across the grid. In fact, every week there are plenty of new releases to be had, and not just from events, either. Though I’ve really loaded up on goodies from quite a few for this post, I’m also wearing a great new outfit from the newly re-branded LaVian&Co.

Though typically I lean towards exclusive, one of a kind meshes, I do make exceptions when items are especially well done and true to their names, Sam and Kim have always delivered just that with great color options and amazing textures. The super generous ladies of LaVian&Co have also always sold their products at outstanding bargains and every time I have someone asking where they can get great clothes at a great deal, LaVian&Co (Liv-Glam) is where I send them.

LaVian & Co.

It’s always sad to see a much loved brand leave SL, especially when one has been as loyal and faithful to the fashion world as LivGlam has. Though the reign of the fabulous duo, Samantha Jones and Kim Lysette may have come to an end for LivGlam, I am super excited to say that they’ll be returning in the new year with an amazing new set of designs under a brand new name: LaVian & Co. I am certain that with the two of them at the helm and the lovely Harper Beresford as Blog Manager, we’ll be seeing some fantastic new stuff that’ll be sure to carry us through 2015.

Though the Liv-Glam mainstore will be closing on December 30th, you still have a couple more days to grab all you can at ridiculously low prices.  And, as always, you can find all of the designs we’ve come to love at regular price on the Marketplace.

Vintage Ruffles

Every year, starting Thanksgiving night, it’s been a tradition in our family to watch National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. If you haven’t seen it before, it’s a classic and the perfect movie for the holiday season.

I realized today when I saw this ruffled collared shirt by Liv-Glam that I was reminded of one of the outfits Beverly D’Angelo wears in the movie. Though the shirt isn’t exactly the same, it has the neck embellishment and just enough elegance to be a perfect reminder for me.

Has anyone ever seen the movie? What do you think?

Winter Whites

Even though I am not much of a cold weather person, I love the whiteness surrounding the Winter season. All the crisp, sparking snow covering every surface is so clean and fresh, that I just love incorporating it into so many different aspects of my life, be it home decor or fashion.

I am so in love with this new sweater dress by Bueno, that I haven’t taken it off in days. It’s knitted fabric fits close to the body and can be dressed either up or down, which I’ve accomplished the former by adding elegant pearls and new infinity scarf by Izzie Button for the Liaison Collaborative. You can pick up the dress and this new set of poses I’m showing off at the new round of Kustom9.

Forever Yours

Although I am having the time of my life in my RL travels, I have to admit, I am missing home a bit. And my bed. And my desktop. Nevertheless, I managed to squeeze out just enough time and patience on my SL hating laptop to put together a few pictures for this post. So, if they look bad, just hang in there- I’ll be home next month!

Still, I wanted to show you guys some new, red hot releases in the form of this fluffy fur coat by Aurelia Chauveau for MOLiCHiNO and the Gypset Market. Also new are some vintage themed Collabor88 items by Nylon Outfitters, Maxi Gossamer and Maitreya. Oh, and this gorgeous new skin by Aida for Glam Affair. I think Sia is stunning, makeup options and all, but I would love to see a clean version included so I can wear her full time. *Le Sigh*

Riding into Autumn

I love going back to places I’ve already been and seeing what changes have overcome them, especially now that the fall months are here. I’ve been to Frisland before, admiring the rolling hills and beautiful animals, so now I am back, exploring the lovely changing of leaves, cooler temperatures and that crisp atmosphere that only comes from Fall. A farm theme definitely embodies all of that!

I’m channeling a bit of Michael Jackson, I think, with these new pieces from COCO for faMESHed. These mesh pants, jacket and fedora come in a variety of colors and I just love the addition of the glove. Epic. A perfect match to this ensemble are new shoes by Just Design for the Fifty Shades round of Uber (oohlala!) and what a better way to show them all off, than with some editorial poses by PosESion for Kustom9!

My Outfit:

Glam Affair – Romy (america) & Flower Lipstick 1
