Did Bach Ever Eat Pancakes At Midnight?

I'll be the first to admit I don't pull off "gothic" very well. I have friends who do and do it extremely well, but it's not really my style. But I knew immediately that I wanted to wear The Witching Hour by Indyra Originals for FAIR when I saw it. Then when I saw the L'Opera hat by Tres Beau for the You Go To My Head hat hunt - well, I knew I had today's outfit!

Style - Did Bach ever eat pancakes at midnight?

The dress is very short and slim fitting, and comes with the stockings. My favorite part of it is probably the brooch and collar. I like ruffles! And I think the hat is just awesome! I had never heard of this hunt, but after seeing pictures of the offerings, I think I might have to do it!

Hold It Against Me

Yay! The new round of Zodiac started on Saturday! I know this is only the 3rd cycle, but I really think this is the best one yet!

Style - Hold It Against Me

I don't blog a ton of lingerie in here because I'm shy [and because I rarely ever buy it], but the Balance lingerie from Solange for Zodiac is so pretty! I've been dancing around to make the little tassels wave ever since I put it on.

And how cute are the Morning Light Cupboard Beds from Trompe Loeil for FAIR?? They come in different colors and can be styled in sooo many ways, as I'm sure you've seen other bloggers do recently. Love!

I guess I should go put some pants on now.

Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.

Fall really is the best time to head out and take photos, don't you think?

Style - Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second

I've been trying to blog this DouceMon jacket from LeeZu for a while but SL being what it is, for some reason the main part of the jacket wouldn't rez in clearly. I ended up tossing it on the ground, which allowed the texture to rez, which then meant it cleared up on me. Oh SL, the tricks we have to learn sometimes! But it was worth it because this is just the perfect fall jacket! The sleeves are all pushed up, and there's a great patterned panel in the back that matches the lapels. Total love!

Someone mentioned the Vintage Camera by Tee*fy for The Arcade and I realized, hey, I actually got the RARE one! I just hadn't unpacked it! Did you spend a ton of money at The Arcade? I did. But - I'm STILLLLL looking for the white mesh sneakers from DECO. If anyone has a pair they're willing to sell, I'll pay twice the gacha sale amount. Or I'll trade stuff!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Not Very Technical

So the husband has been hinting that he might like a television in our bedroom for when we want to be totally lazy. But um...I might have to let him hook this up. I'm not very technical.

Style - Not Very Technical

Luckily I'm pretty in my new outfit from FAIR!

FAIR opens today at 4pm SLT!! Also, if you like my pose from aDORKable, you can pick it up tomorrow when the Libra cycle of Zodiac opens!

Happy Saturday!

Dirty or Clean?

I'll admit it, I have a very long nighttime beauty routine! What? You think this kind of face is just natural? No way! Because I spend so much time in the bathroom, I always like to make sure it's clean and neat. My husband, however... well, you know men.

Style - Dirty or clean? - 1

Of course, I'll forgive him. After all, sometimes you just have to get dirty to get clean!

Intervales Theme

I made a joke the other day that I was going to have to start stripping or turning tricks to pay for all the things I want from all the amazing events. And I might still have to, because FAIR is coming!

Style - Intervales Theme

On September 22nd CHIC Management will open the doors to its new monthly event. The event will focus on a theme of time, each designer being inspired by one of the 24 hours in a day. There will be resident brands (who will alternate each month) and one cycle guest spots which are available to apply for.

CHIC is re-introducing its Fair Pricing Policy (hence the name of the event!) which encourages designers not to reduce the prices of their products in the event, and to ask for a price that they think is fair considering how much work they put into the item.

See you at the FAIR!

Mix Em Up

So I love events. I really do. But the problem with events is that sometimes I just get totally caught up in blogging the newest releases from certain events. At home, I tend to wear a lot of older items, so figured tonight I'd go ahead and blog one of those looks. I think you can still buy all these items, but if you're a big shopper like I am, you might find you already have them lurking in your inventory. :)

Let's Play At The Arcade!

Unless you've been living under a prim boulder, you've heard that The Arcade started last night! A big gacha festival, it's been a much anticipated event!! It's the weekend and I don't have time to talk much, but please remember that as with any big event, EXPECT LAG. Don't start yelling at people, you're not the Lag Police. But please make it easier for you and everyone else by removing any unnecessary scripted attachments and any ridiculous outfits. You don't need to wear your big flexi ball gown or carry weapons. No one cares what YOU look like, they're just there to have fun and shop. :) Also, for the easiest shopping? Check out The Arcade Tumblr because it has the direct link to each machine. Yay!

See you at The Arcade!!

Are you ever just totally inspired by another blogger? I am, frequently! I saw a very cute dress that Rylan was wearing in a post, and I WANTED it so much! The store, La Penderie de Nicole, is a totally new-to-me store, but one I'm definitely going to be returning to. Especially if they keep making cute little dresses like this one! Thanks, Ry, for helping me find a new store and inspiring me to look more fashionable! ♥

I'll make the sacrifice.

My husband and I have been married for almost a year, and in that time, he's totally spoiled me. But, I guess those days are over because when I asked him what we were having for dinner, he sheepishly said, "We better just have ramen." Ramen??

Style - I'll make the sacrifice - 1

Well, turns out? He discovered FATEwear tonight.

Of course, looking at him in his new Willard suit... Mmm. Yeah. I'll make the sacrifice and eat the ramen.

I've been to Louisiana several times, but I've never made it as far as New Orleans. Luckily Barnesworth Anubis brought a little piece of New Orleans to us for Collabor88 with his New Orleans Studio skybox!

Style - Oh my NOLA

I'm still rolling around in fantastic new releases from Coldlogic. The Keach sweater dress is just so awesome. It looks like something I'd wear all winter long because I'm usually freezing to death.

Pink Fuel finally released the Kumi skin last night! I had to rush right over to grab a demo and then go right back to buy it! I'm in love with it, so expect to see me in it a LOT.

Gotta go do more shopping!

Autumn Time

I just love autumn as a season. Football games, marching band contests, lots of pretty falling leaves and pumpkins, and of course pulling out the jeans and sweaters! Of course, in my neck of the woods, we're usually still wearing shorts until Thanksgiving, but in SL, it's definitely time to start pulling out the cooler weather clothes!

Style - Autumn Time

Coldlogic just released a whole bunch of new items, and I fell in deep love with the Shereda top! A lovely cropped sweater over a pretty cowl necked shirt? Oh, yes PLEASE! I never want to take it off!

At FaMESHed this month, Auxiliary released their new Skinny jeans. I'll admit, I'm not a huge fan of skinny jeans, but these are just fabulous! They're low rise and make your booty just look amazing. And while you're picking these up at FaMESHed, be sure to grab the Noriko hair from Wasabi Pills. I'm not a short hair kind of girl normally, but this hair is so adorable, I can't seem to take it off!

I guess it's time to stop looking pretty and start doing some autumn landscaping. Hey, while I have you here - Where are the best places to get autumn trees and other outdoor decor? Leave a comment or IM me! :)

Happy Birthday, Mr. Truth!

In the spring of 2009, I had the opportunity to meet Truth Hawks at a party. I didn't know much about him aside from the fact that he made clothes and shoes and hair. Somehow over the years, we managed to become friends. He's been incredibly kind to me, even when he had every right to tell me to get bent. :-p

Today is his RL birthday! Although we don't chat as much as we used to, I absolutely could not let the day go by without wishing him a happy birthday AND wearing what is probably my most favorite Truth hair ever! His adorable partner, Kaelyn, has been a machine the past couple of weeks taking tons of pictures and collecting birthday messages for him. You can see them all in this Flickr set!

Happy birthday, Stinky! I'd make you a cake but I'd probably end up putting meat in it. :-p

Happy Birthday, Mr. Truth!
