Not Dizzy


As the title says I am not Dizzy… well I am I just don’t look very Dizzy at the moment. The other day I got a note card for Designers United…. I had never heard of it before so I know I didn’t join a group for notices. Thankfully one of the groups I *am* in was in on this times theme (vaudeville) and I was notified otherwise I would have missed out on a lot of really awesome things!
The first thing I found and fell in love with was this new skin from Tres Blah and it’s also the reason why I am not Dizzy right now. The skin is beautiful.. just look at that cute little nose, the luscious lips and uniquely different thick eyebrows, but it didn’t look the way I would have hoped on my real shape. So I set out to make a new shape that would show off the skin, well in the way I wanted it to that is. Anyway.. back to the skin. There are some really neat features to the skin, like 3 different eyebrow styles that each come in two different shades also the skin has freckled and non freckled versions. It’s so adorable I donno when i will change back to normal Dizzy and it has opened my eyes to a new skin maker… oh great like I really needed to have another skin maker taking all my monies… kekek. I have on one of my most favorite Lamb hairs, Poppyseed, and beings I was not myself I thought to switch things up a bit and have it on in a much lighter shade, but I think it works.
For my outfit I have strayed just a little from the all bundled up winter look I have been sporting for the last two moths and have on a spaghetti strap tunic dress. I did add a tank top and some jeans under it for added warmth though, but in spring this will be a really cute dress all one it’s own. Good news on that is i bought it during a big sale and got the fat pack. I love the folded over and tied off detail in the middle, very well sculpted.
My shoes are a great winter must and very much like a pair of knit boots I have in real life. I have on the plain version of the gray knit leg warmers+flats from ANEXX. Each pair comes with a plain version and a Nordic version which matches the Nordic coat from Aoharu AND like 13 pairs of knit leggings! Making this a pair of shoes I am sad I did not fat pack.. oh well.

Knitted

I will admit it.. i am a sucker for a cute hairs with knit caps. And what luck Reek and Tiny Bird got together to make a totally adorable new hair. Isn’t this hair too cute..the hair is pulled to the side in a little hair bow and features a color changing knit cap with a separately color changing pompom. My only gripe about the hair is the darkest brown is not that dark really. there was a more ashy dark brown , but it looked a little dull and lost the luster of the other hair colors.
Also on me new today is the Nordic Knit Sweater from Aoharu, which once I put it on filled me with a totally warm and cozy feeling. To continue my knitted theme I also have on a knit long sleeve top from Couverture under the sweater. When going through my inventory trying to find some pants to wear i have to say I was a little disappointed how low cut most jeans are in SL… here i am trying to put together a warm winter outfit and everything shows off a lot of skin.

Sales, hunt prizes, new hairs oh my!

I have spent so much money in the last few weeks. Fri.day had a winter sale, Surf Co. had a sale not to mention a new hair. And that’s not even mentioning all the things I bought at the stores i discovered while doing the Down the Chimney Hunt! My tank top (undershirt), the long sleeve shirt and the black jean skirt area ll from fri.day.. and all bought during the sale (I think i own most of the store now). My tights were part of Kyoot’s Black friday 50L purchase. The boots are from Surf Co. and also bought during a sale. My scarf and mittens were free from the Down the Chimney Hunt and I love them! The snowflake sticking detail is awesome. My whole outfit cost roughly $300L! The only thing new is the hair. This is the new Pam long+bangs hair from Surf Co. and it’s simply adorable. Has a cute little pom pom in back.
Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I loved the [PF] skins so much that I went back and about a pack of 4.. today I have on the Angel make up one and I am still loving these skins.

More Sales!

Artilleri has turned 4 years old and in honor is having a 50% off sale= totally awesomeness! Also Surf Couture is having a huge sale= Dizzy faints.
Not wearing too much Artilleri today, but I am sporting a few items I got from Surf Couture.. like the totally adorable cardigan with under shirt. The details on the cardigan are amazing. It comes in three different colors and I am sad i got this one before the rest rezzed, otherwise I would have bought the fat pack. Also from Surf Couture are my Hot Cocoa stained jeans… I am wearing them here with the KAO fringe boots, but they do have a sculpted rolled hem. I never roll up my jeans in real life, but i can’t get enough of them in SL… donno what it is.
Also have on again to day the cozy mittens from Reek and a crochet muffler from DP Yumyum.

My totally cute earmuffs are from Artilleri.. I think I will have to go back for a few more colors later on. My hair is CBC and I love the little whispy details around the bangs and on the back of the neck.

Stripes and Fringe


A friend TPed me to Lark the other day, I had never been there, but I saw this totally cute dress and could not pass it up! There are options for pockets and no pockets and it comes with an AO for hands in the pockets. I “winterized” it but adding a turtle neck top and a simple pair of jeans under it. And of course no winter outfit is complete with out some cozy boots. Today i am wearing the Suede Fringe Boots from KAO. When I went to buy these i could not find a demo, donno if it just never loaded or what, but i liked the picture and I could not resist. I bought them with out trying them on … something I NEVER do. They fit awesomely and I am so glad now i bought the fat pack on them too!
I am still totally in love with the Burdie ears from Plastik and am not sure when I will take them off!
Also can’t get enough of the Winter2 skins from Curio, here I am wearing Cozy1.

Cozy With The Birds

There is a winter sale at fri.day! This is both good and bad news…kekeke. Great cause who doesn’t love a sale, bad because I am now broke broke broke. Fri.day is great for a lot of basic wardrobe needs. Their items come in a bunch of different colors and if you go during a sale the fat packs are crazy reduced!
Today I have on the Long sleeve layers tee (used as under shirt), Basic leggings and the Basic Flats from fri.day.
My blue sweater is the Puff Sleeve Sweater from Couverture and i was a little disappointed with it. For one I could not tell from the pictures that the body portion was a fully sculpted piece, I just didn’t pay attention close enough. And second the sleeves are no mod, so on me a smaller (shorter) av they are HUGE and I really have no way of fixing that. But it’s still a cute top non the less.
I have paired it with the Fril-Miniskirt from Oyakin which I think is adorable! It has a few different ways to wear it plus an optional petticoat for underneath that has lace. I bought the fat pack so in this picture I actually have two different skirts on. The petticoat from the pink one and the top part of the skirt from the natural colored one, but the fat pack is sooo reasonably priced I would suggest just getting that.
More cute mittens today… these ones are from Reek and in a natural color, but there were so many of the others I wanted I know i will soon regret not buying the fat pack for them.

My ears today are the Animalistic Elven Ears with Burdies from Plastik and I think one of the cutest things I have seen in a long while! I only have one side pictured here, but each side has different birds so they don’t look silly with the same exact birds on them. they are very well sculpted like the rest of Plastik’s ears and very easy to recolor to match the skin. So perfect for any fae!

Let It Snow


I hadn’t been to Surf Couture in quite some time, so when I went the other day and found all the new things I went a little spend crazy and had to put together an outfit or two. In this outfit I have on the Vintage Fall Hoodie in seafoam and the Parker Knit Boots from Surf Couture. The hoodie comes with two versions.. one with printing on the front and one with out, I am wearing the with out. The socks on the boots are scripted to change a wide variety of colors.. sure to go with any outfit. I have paired the hoodie and boots with the Cleo jean skirt in dirty from Maitreya and some awesome pink leggings from !Ohmai (basic sheer leggings, barbie).
To keep my hands warm I have on the new Glitter Mittens from la Petite Morte in purple and green. They are super cute and the day before I found them I had just been wondering if anyone had made any mittens.
To go with my wintery outfit I have on Sniffles one of the new Curio winter skins. It features flushed cheeks and a reddened nose. It’s terribly cute and perfect for any winter outfit.
