Revamping an Old Favorite

Last year this was one of my most favorite outfits to wear so I though to give it a little 2010 update. My shape has changed ever so slightly since last year, but I am probably the only one that could tell it’s such a small change. Also if i were not so in love with eh Tres Blah Hiccup Swoon skin for DU3 I would actually have a darker skin tone than I had on last year… but I AM too in love with the swoon skin and liked it better in the lighter ton.
I am such a shopaholic that I forget about all the good things I bought before. I had fun putting on an older outfit and changing things up with some new items.. I might start doing this with a lot of other older outfits I have. Not only just to change them up, but I think it’s good to point out some older items along with all the new things coming out these days.
lol.. not only are there differences with the outfit from last year, but I see my photo skills are a little better as this year I was able to get a more straight on shot where as last year is a little skewed and looking down. Funny because it makes 2010 Dizzy look taller than 2009 Dizzy and I am actually a hair shorter now.
In the 2010 version I have changed the shoes from red rain boots to the new leather and fur lined boots from Reek… these boots are so awesomely awesome I have no other word for them, but awesome. The attention to detail is amazing… the texture and shading is brilliant… I can’t stop looking at them. I picked these reds ones up at the last 50L Friday, but as soon as i have some more money I’m going straight back to Reek and buying the rest of the colors.
I also added in some arm warmers instead of just the sleeves from the shrug. I have addicted to arm warmers.. I will admit it. I have so many, but the ones I have on today fairly new out from Fri.day and I loved them cause they went over the hands and have a cut out for the thumb so they are half like a mitten.

Me Now

I love Group Gifts and 50L Fridays!
Snagged this cute top and the floral tights from this weeks FLF. While checking out the FLF stores I spied a bunch of new things out at stores I liked and picked up the long sleeve shirt I have on underneath. And my totally “Snazzy Ruffle Flats” were a group gift!

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.

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.
