{ Fall into Fashion } Shiny Shabby is OPEN!

FallFashion_FINAL

Shiny Shabby is opening up for it’s September/October round with a rush of fall-inspired fashion and decor.. warm autumn hues and jewel tones mixed with cozy fabrics and rustic furnishings are what we come to expect and look forward to at this time of year in our shopping.  Shiny Shabby will not disappoint you there, however, I chose to show off a few not-so-typical fall fashion items in this post because once I tried them on, I fell in love.

The dress by TETRA is going to be my new ‘little black dress’ in whatever color it is because it’s absolutely perfect.  It fits my Maitreya mesh body like a glove and hugs my curves while not distorting or stretching awkwardly.. yay TETRA!  With such a fem-glam style of dress with it’s dainty straps and satin fabric, the strappy heels from Essenz were the ideal choice.  I love that Essenz shoes come in color groupings so you can get more than one color in a pack without having to fork out a fortune for a fatpack.  This bright candy apple red was going to be my pop of fall color so YourSkin&YourShape’s new “Noemi” Lelutka mesh head/skin appliers gave me the red lippy i needed and Vanity Hair’s almost vintage glam style topped me with my fiery tresses.  Lastly the sprinkles of jewelry on this candy apple.. a very modern sophisticated leaf designed necklace from LUXE.

It may not be typical fall fashion, but it’s certainly one that will turn heads.  A girl’s gotta have something to wear for those days/nights when she isn’t curled up by the fire or raking leaves on the farm!  Shiny Shabby will be open until October 15th for your shopping indulgences. Enjoy!

{ Can I be your Wonderwall? } Shiny Shabby is OPEN!

Today is gonna be the day
That they’re gonna throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do, about you now

Back beat, the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I
Would like to say to you but I don’t know how

Because maybe, you’re gonna be the one that saves me
And after all, you’re my wonderwall

{ Begin Again } Classic Romance @ The Liaison Collaborative

WARNING! Commentary ahead….

I think there’s definitely different camps when it comes to the notorious V-Day.  Whether we like it or not, Valentine’s Day comes every year taunting us with it’s candy hearts and mushy cards, it’s overpriced flowers and cutesy teddy bears, and then there’s the chocolate…  Not that I have anything against chocolate.  😛  And I have heard the arguments: “Why only celebrate love one day a year?? Pffft!”  “Valentine’s Day was created by Hallmark to sell more stuff.”  “Valentine’s Day should be called Extortion Day.” And perhaps it’s true that one shouldn’t simply save up all the romance for a single day.  And what if you have no one to romance with?  There are plenty of reasons to not be obliged to celebrate this particular holiday…

Yet, I can’t help but be drawn into the romantic feel of this time of year.  Post-Christmas let-down and winter doldrums leave you feeling deflated.. so having a little love in the air definitely can breathe new life into you.  And that doesn’t mean you have to have ‘the one’ in your life… no need to feel pressure to run out and get a significant other just for February 14th.  Sharing the love works on many levels, and is a pretty awesome upper.  It makes people happy and feel good.  And I don’t know about you, but making people happy makes me happy.  So share it with family.  Share it with friends.  Share it with your favorite furry animals.  Maybe this February you’ll still be single, so what.  Forget the date. Love blooms in all seasons.  But I guarantee you that happiness in your heart will draw others in like moths to a flame.

Be happy and Be Loved! ❤

This round of The Liaison Collaborative themed around “Classic Romance” inspired me to put together a scene straight out of a chick flick.  And I’ll admit that although I wasn’t too excited at first about going all romantical, a little help from a friend brought me out of my funk and feeling ready to begin again.

He’s a good sport letting me clean him up from his typical bad boy look and making him stand for hours pretending to woo me (Thanks, Cyp!). 😛

I hope you enjoy this little brunch date at the cafe story in pictures… and remember to check out TLC for these and more romantically inspired goodies!

{ Snowbunny Style } from Events all around the Grid!

Snowflake-full_FINAL

Hi guys and girlies! Exposeur put out this super cute photo prop box full of snowflakes and baubles on Cyber Monday and I grabbed it up quick knowing I would put it to use for some fun wintery shots.  And since The Liaison Collaborative‘s “Winter Harvest” round is wrapping up in just 6 more days to get ready for a new theme starting December 15th, I have added the lit trees from Pixel Mode.  I’m also featuring the snowflake sweater by Coquet, casual and comfy along with the {Wicked Peach}‘s rosy cheeks.  All available at TLC until December 14th.  Coldlogic just released a bunch of new seasonal clothing the past few weeks, lots of coats and leggings… like the ones I’m wearing.  And there are many other events around the grid right now featuring stylin’ snow lover winterwear.. The Arcade Gacha event that opened Dec 1st runs for the whole month and has lots of frosty finds like ATOMIC‘s adorable bunny scarf and mittens.  And FaMESHed that just opened on the 1st as well is where i snagged the sweet knit hat w/hair by Tableau Vivant and this lovely snowflake necklace by Cae’s.  N21 is in full swing and had the perfect silvery boots by REIGN to complete my style.  All this wouldn’t be complete without the cool “Lola” skin by Belleza out now for the “Winter Trend” Fair.

Snowflake-close_FINAL

If you’re looking to bundle up and brave the virtual snow.. Second Life definitely is in no shortage of Winter friendly events for your shopping needs!   And if you are in a mood to go check out some awesome sims/homes that have been done up and decorated for the holidays – make sure to stop in at the locations on this year’s “Tour of Lights” open December 18-21.
