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!

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.

The Arcade – June 2014

I am having a blast with my new Arcade items, especially this new ‘Summer Treehouse’ release from Snips & Snails. Unless my memory fails me, S&S is a first timer to the Arcade and, I must say, has set the bar high for future appearances. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing a lot more from this creator in the events to come. Of course, it wouldn’t be the ultimate playground, without this huge assortment of fun decor, props and furry companions to help get the party started.

Since there are way too many things that I couldn’t not use, here is the general list of who you see in my snapshots, as well as the shopping guide for this round so you can check out all of these great designers, and more!
