Flowers and Flowers

The theme this month for Collaber8 is Midsummer and I am in love. It immediately makes me think Midsummer Night’s dream which happens to be one of my favorite plays. So when I first heard what the them was it brought to mind flowers, trees fairies and enchantment. I was really excited for this theme to open up and let me tell you I was not disappointed with the items made for this round.
Mt very first purchase was this adorable frilly summery dress from Tres Blah. I don’t ever want to take this dress off!
Next I got the Ange hair from D!va. It’s so cute and perfect for traipsing around a forest with all it’s wispy pieces. It comes with a flower crown, but you can also turn it off as well as change the color of the flowers. There are also a few extra pieces of rigged mesh you can add to make it look like the bottom half of the hair is swept over the shoulders.
The last thin in this outfit that is from C88 is my necklace from Noodles. I and usually not really big on accessories, but lately I have been liking them more and more. Could be that they are looking so much better with new creative tools out there. Anyway this one was so pretty and delicate looking it just called to me.

For the last few months I have been wearing Ikon eyes and haven’t really mentioned this other than to list what I am wearing. Well now I am going to take the time.
I think Ikon eyes are the best I have seen in SL to date. I am a full convert. I have eyes from a few different lines and even though a lot of the same colors are made in each line style they look so different because each line has a new feel. There is so much detail in the eyes, sometimes I find myself just staring into my avatar’s eyes getting lost in their rich color. And such a wide variety of colors there are! There are so many different colors I want. When I go to the store I have to limit myself otherwise I would buy them all.

Gone to the Beach

Collaber88 has opened for this month and it is absolutely full of wonderful goodies! There are so many things I want and after a full day of trying to get in, once I was finally there I was too overwhelmed by everything I wanted I only bought one thing. For now at least, I will go back to get more later.

The one thing i did get right off was the Just Frills top from Aux. I had been seeing the work in progress pictures and I was already dying for this top before it came out. It’s so cute and perfect for summer!

Also a bit more silliness from me today. I went searching for a nice beach to take my picture and after a kind person tossed me an LM to a cute beach I totally forget the main idea and basically crop everything but water out of the picture. *facepalm* there had been cute scenery in the back, but I am kind of ditzy today I guess. Maybe I need a nap so I can better remember my plans just five minutes after making them.

2013 here I come!

All dolled up and ready to have some fun tonight and ring in the new year! Still looking for that perfect dress for a night of fun in SL, well you should definitely head down to Maitreya and check out the new Frenzy Party dress that went out yesterday. It’s cute, fun, flirty and covered in glitter! What more do you need for a New Year party!? I got the purple with flex of pink glitter, but it comes in so many colors it was hard to pick just one.

I headed back to Dutch Touch to grab a skin with make up on it (as I tend to only wear bare faced skins). I ended up buying 3 more skins… I hate when stores close and leave. How am I to know what I will need from them for the future?! If you have not headed down to Dutch Touch yet to get any last minute skins I suggest you high tail it down there because today is the last day! This one I am wearing today is Fiep in make up 5.

Pastel Light

I absolutely love the high wasted jeans from the Secret Store. Even more in love when I found they came in pastel colors! I have an outfit immediately come to mind. I was a little sad that I could not get the tucked tee from Tres Blah to work (the one made for the high waist maxi skirt) with the jeans. They are picture in the ad from The Secret Store for the pants, but when I put on mine there was a pretty big noticeable gap between the bottom the shirt and the top of the pants and you can see skin. I donno if there is something extra I am supposed to do to get it to work with them like in the ad picture. I ended up going to Tee*fy and getting one of their tanks made for high waist items (also pictured in the ad for the pants in The Secret Store).
I ran into a little snag when I went to put on the cardigan, but thankfully Toki Doki has excellent customer service! I had bought the fat pack of these sweaters from Toki Doki when they came out in the summer. (One of the few things I have ever fatpacked.) When I went looking for this one I realized my fat pack was missing all the printed options of the cardigan. When I bought it I never thought to look to make sure they were all there. I went to the store to see if there was a redelivery system (those things rock) thinking maybe the pack had been fixed and if I got it redelivered I’d get my missing sweaters, but no redelivery. I could see in the fat pack out in the store that the printed ones were in there. I was sad and not quite sure what to do. It had been such a long time since I bought them I did not have my transaction history to prove I bought them. I took a chance though and messaged the creator of Toki Doki and included a screen shot of my inventory showing the sweaters and crossed my fingers that she would not think I was scamming her. My replacement cardigans were sent right out to me! *does happy dance* I was already a pretty big fan of Toki Doki, but this made me even more of one! Thank you!

Pink Metal

As soon as I saw this Metal top from Emery at FaMESHed I was in love! And i pretty much instantly had an idea for an outfit to wear with it. Thankfully I am a bit of a procrastinator and didn’t blog it right away because by waiting it gave enough time for ColdLogic to come out with the most perfect bottoms for the outfit! The only problem I had was deciding which color to get. I finally ended up getting the Sheldon pants with the pink skirt area and black leggings. Can’t ever go wrong with pink!

My boots are oldies, but goodies from Naughty. They are so well made that years later they still look great next to new jazzy mesh clothes. That makes for a real happy Dizzy because they are my favorite pair of boots!

I also have on a new hair from Magika called Today. I pretty much instantly fell in love with this hair. It frames the face in a really irresistible way and I can’t stop looking at myself. I also love how natural the ends look! The latest hairs coming out of Magika have been looking so awesome, I love being able to see creators really grow and advance their skills. Another plus is they come in HUGE color packs for a great price. Really worth the money.

Pink Glow of Sunset

Just a simple look of the day today.
I really liked the dress u.f.o had out for Collaber88 this month, it was very hard to pick a color. The outfit just sort of came together after that.
I am also really enjoying the blond hair! I can’t believe I didn’t try it out sooner.

Easy Layers

In Fall I love to wear lots of different layers, but with mesh that can sometimes be a bit more challenging to do. Thankfully ColdLogic has made the layered look with mesh a whole lot easier! Their last few releases have been layered looks all in one. In this outfit the long sleeved blue tunic dress top, over sweater and the scarf are all one piece! It also has an option to wear just the under top alone as well. I have been living in this outfit for a week straight, I love it so much!
