{ 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!

{ Diners, Drive-ins and Divas! }

If you’re American and have any interest in the Food Network, this title may make you snicker a bit.. if so, good, my work here is done! 😛  If you’re not American and still get the play on words … even better!  It all started with a sassy glam outfit from Shiny Shabby (thank you so much Dead Dollz!) and then the gift of this gorgeous vintage white (and driveable!) convertible by Consignment that you can get right now at the Arcade.  I wanted to play up the diva look so gave myself a couple canine companions fitting for a rich girl… the flottante puppies from {anc} were the perfect addition.  And since I can never get enough of {anc}’s elegant and whimsical creations, I snuck some of their champagne Arcade offerings to turn this into an upper class tailgate!  Vanity Hair’s “Not My Business” feels very retro and full of attitude so now we come full circle with the classic car and BAM!… “Diners, Drive-ins and Divas” is born.

Welcome to my strange and wonderful mind… hope you enjoyed it!  Now drink up.. and get shopping!

{ All the World’s a Stage } FLF

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have  their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts…” (William Shakespeare)

This couldn’t be more perfect a statement for the world of Second Life as well as First Life… I’ve come to realize lately more than ever that sometimes you have to accept that people will come and go in your life or that at times you will be close and then over time drift away.  Perhaps only to fulfill a need for a time, to play the role they were meant to play and help grow you in some small way… sometimes even by hurting you.  But life doesn’t stop there, and you have to brush yourself off and go back out in the spotlight.  You were meant to be there afterall.  You were meant to impact someone else’s life too.  Maybe you will never know that you even did.  Life is just a succession and combination of experiences.  Be who you want to be, do what you want to do, and love who you want to love.  So when the curtain closes, you can take your bow for a job well done.
