Friends In Low Places


I am usually not one for overalls, but I love these that Mikunch had at the Season’s story. This was the first I had ever heard of the store so I will keep an eye out for future things from them. However there was one thing that annoyed me… You have to purchase a separate HUD that cost 30L LESS than the actually clothing item in order the change the under shirt texture. So this jumper and under top actually cost 530L which in my opinion is a lot. I did it this time because I just really wanted the striped shirt, but it does kind of color my view of a store that charges you that much for just a texture HUD.

I picked up my little shoulder goat at the Season’s Story as well from Half Deer. He is so cute! I have not taken him off since buying him a few weeks ago.

I had a theme of country and animals going already so when Hair Fair rolled around and I say Ohmai’s adorable hairs with bird pets I just KNEW one would be perfect for this outfit. I am wearing Callia, a cute side braid with straw hat and of course birds. I love that each of the ohmai hairs come with a bird or Tweeter version as well as a plain version.

I am glad I kind of procrastinated (as usual) to take the picture of this outfit because had I not I would have missed out on adding in the awesome wombat friend I picked up at the Wild Things Gacha from Schadenfreude. I love these things! Her piggies were my favorite item from the last Arcade and now they have wombat buddies to wander around my land with them. I don’t remember if the piggies did this, but you can add the wombat to yer person and it will become a following pet!

Purple Lemon


After many days of trying to get to Collaber88 I finally made it! I only grabbed a few things to start, these should hold me over until it’s a littler easier to get back in.

I saw this Celoe dress on someone else and have been dying to try it on every since. So it was the first thing I snagged when I finally got in. It’s so cute and I already have ideas for other outfits using it.

My shoes are from Tulip and also at this month’s C88. They come in so many colors it was really hard to choose which ones to get. My first thought was black as usual, but I end up with so many shoes in black. I have been trying to branch out more with some color. I ended up getting a red-ish leather looking color thinking it can add color, but still a natural neutral so can go with a lot of things.

Tulip also has two other style shoes out at C88, I might have to go get them as well. It will be a chance to get some different colors.

I also picked up the Lyra necklace from Maxi Gossamer. You can change the chain color and there are different stone colors you can change on touch.

Bad Wolf


One of my favorite pieces from last month’s C88 is this loose cardi with optional built in top from Auxiliary. I was so glad it came with the top made to go under the sweater already, it can be so hard to layer things with mesh if they are not made exactly for each other or made really loose. For those that want to try and layer with their own top there it is also set up to wear it with out the shirt. However the top comes with a bunch of print options so you can wear it many times and always look like you have something new. I love the cropped top for spring and summer, but also kinda wish they would make a full length top that could be an optional buy too. *cough cough hint hint*

The mood I was in called for ripped denim shorts and snagged tights, so of course that also meant I had to wear my Fashionably Dead Bossy Boots. I am only just now realizing this was an average outfit for me in high school (only with a full shirt). No wonder I love it so much and have not changed my avatar in over a week.

Bone Legs


Love love love these skeleton leggings from Nylon Outfitters at the current round of C88. I wish I had them in RL! So cute and perfect for the season.
I thought they paired nicely with the asymmetrical leather jacket top from ISON also out at C88. The jacket is great because it is already layer with a fun flowy top underneath with a couple color options. It has that nice deceptively simple design that can be easily dressed up or down.

Crisp Air


Mornings of crisp fall air inspired me to cozy up a little more today.
Love this over sized sweater from ColdLogic, it’s perfect for these cooler October days. I paired it with an older, but still really cute scarf I found in my inventory from Tee*fy. A pair of rolled up boyfriend jeans from Ryvolter I got at the Seasons Story make a perfect comfortable, but not totally winter bundled up combo I think. I also thought this the perfect time to break out the orange flower Bossy Boots from Fashionably Dead that were in the Arcade over the summer.

Hair Fair 2013

It’s that time of year again… HAIR FAIR!!! *runs around with crazy flailing arms* Out of all the fair type events, like skin fair, pose fair, etc…, Hair Fair is my most favorite. One can never have too much hair, right? It’s so easy in SL to change your hair from short to long and back again. Dye it crazy colors or bring it back to a natural color. I have to have lots of variety in my hairs to fit every mood and whim I may have.

With so many great hair creators these days I find it really hard to limit myself. I went way overboard last year buying nearly 40 hairs! Looking back at my old post I realized that so many of them I forgot I had and never wore again. So when it came to hair fair this time I gave myself a stern talking to about really thinking over what hairs I would buy. I still went a little overboard, but really who could blame me with all the awesome hair out there this year?! The total number of hairs I got this is is just under half of what I got last year so i will count that as goal accomplished in not going totally overboard.
You might want to sit back, this is going to be kind of a long post.


Last year Laviere was a new to me hair store, but over the last year they have been working their way to being one of my favorite stores. When I finally got into the fair, which surprisingly didn’t take that long, just a few minutes of constant tp attempts, Laviere was one of the first stores I hit up. As I said before I was really trying to limit myself on what to buy and these two hairs were the ones I felt I could not live with out. It was more difficult to choose which color pack to buy them in actually. Lately I have only been getting fades, I just love that look and Laviere has a great pack with fades, but their textures are so beautifully made that even in the solid colors there is a nice variation to keep the hair from looking flat. I ended up just getting the pastel color pack because the colors are really pretty an it’s the perfect pink!
I simply loved this little curly hair from Tram! I only wish Tram did more non natural colors, but there was this dark salmon-y color that can pass ff as pink so it worked out.


Lamb has some really cute hairs out this year. One of my absolute favorites is True Faith. There is also a similar hair called Blue Monday out and it’s basically the same except it has rolled under and very retro looking bangs. I loved it too and I wear retro styled things a lot, but I had to look long and hard at both hairs and choose which I thought I would get more use out of. Remember trying to stick to a goal of not going too crazy here. As much as I loved the rolled under bangs the more swept to the side fringe won out.
The other hair I got from Lamb is Thieves Like Us. I love that the braids are not super thick. So many braid hairs in SL seem so huge and thick to me. Now I have a lot of hair in RL and the curls ad a lot of volume and thickness to it, but when I braid my hair it is smaller and not all huge like braids tend to be in SL.
Fashionable Dead has some really cute hairs out this year, but by the time I got there I was running low on funds and could only get one. It was hard to choose as this year all (fd) hairs come packaged with two versions… TWO! In the end I got Mercury. I really liked the little floral knotted headband and think I’ll wear it more than the others.


There are a lot of hairs this year with really cute accessories. Ohmai is one of the shops with some of those hairs. I got Athena and Kun. As soon as I put Kun on it reminded me of Melora from Rasputina and could already picture some photo ops and outfits to wear it with.
Some lovely hairs from Clawtooth this yeah, I couldn’t live with out Tootsie. The best thing I think is he’s made a color pack with some of the colors he had int he last arcade round. This pink is my favorite by far.


ISON hair is new to me. Maybe it’s it is new in general, I donno I forget to check back at stores often to see what new things they are up to, but I just remember the clothes. I really liked these two hair styles and they have some nice colors and fades. When you buy the hair you get it with basic colors, and then you have the option to buy other packs on huds. Buying the hair plus the color pack was about 300L, which is nice because for the price of most hairs you get essential natural colors, plus another pack of colors of your choosing. It works out great for me because if I like a hair a lot I will buy it in a basic brown or blonde pack PLUS what ever pack gives me a nice pink or dip dye colors and i was able to do just that for only the price of basically one hair.
LeLutka is another shop this year with pretty accessories for their hair. And I am so happy now that more and more LeLutka hair is being offered in non natural colors!


I was pleasantly surprised by Ploom this year. They usually always have nice hair, just not always in my style. There were two that I just had to have this year. Cassie is so cute with the looped pigtails I could not resist and I really like Ploom’s dip dye pack called Candy.
The other hair I got is Raichu, it’s kinda cute and sassy ponytails done in bunches. There are some really nice details in this hair. Like up front where the hair is in the first band how it is a little poofy, but you can see where the rubber band weighs it down a bit. And the way the swoopy bangs separate from that top poofy part just look brilliant to me. I don’t want to be rude or anything like that, but I really feel like I can see some growth in technique with these latest hairs from Ploom at the fair.
And last, but not least the hairs I picked up at Eaters Coma. This was another shop that made it hard to limit myself. Hair 27 is kinda similar in style to one I got at ISON, but I justified the purchase by reasoning I’d wear the ISON on more in the pinks and as Eaters Coma doesn’t offer funky colors then I would wear it in natural brown. See, perfect reason to get two similar styles!

So those were my picks from this year’s fair. If you haven’t been yet you really should. It didn’t take long to actually get there at all and I made 3 trips and was amazed each time how quickly I got in. Previous years it would literally take me days to get a TP to actually go, but not this year. Also this year’s build is so awesome and cute! If you are having a hard time getting around I suggest finding one of the “bus” dispensers. They really are a life saver for getting around the fair.

Blazer Kitty


I wasn’t ready to take the kitty tights off yet so I had to come up with another look for them. I pretty much already had the idea, I just had to head back to FaMeshed and grab a few more items I had on my WANT list.
This trip I picked up one of the Structured Blazers from The Secret Store. This jacket is great and superbly made. I put the blazer over the Basic Tank from House of Fox which I also picked up at FaMeshed.
