Where Fashion Is Too Good To Be An Obsession

RECENT ITEMS: Pretty Dresses

Yeah, yeah.  I know.  I’ve told you I’m not the girl that REALLLLY likes to wear dresses.  But, I’m allowed to be insane every now and then.  It’s fun and keeps me young.

If you haven’t heard by now, Simone Stern, designer of Simone!, is having an awesome sale for the month of November.  Dresses, outfits, shoes….if you can find it marked down, it’s yours!  Most items are L$100, but some are less. 

Needless to say, I now own probably more ballgowns and dresses than I will ever need in SLife.  But they were pretty.  And I liked them.  And the system skirts didn’t make my butt look gigantic.  And I made sure I told Simone herself that, along with many many thank yous.

Here are pics of what now is sitting in my “Formal” and “Dresses” folders.  And you have every right to say, “ooooo….pretty”:

Of course, I also bought other things this week:

Frangipani Designs:  new release Aradhana Dress in Amber.  Another pretty dress and can also wear the additional top with an awesome pair of jeans.

DE Designs:  new release Amaranth Combo Pack.  If you want your pixelated av to look all comfy and stylish, this is the outfit to do it in.

PixelDolls:  new releases Across the World dress (very elegant and feminine), Anticipation blouse and pants outfit (soft and pretty), and Wraith top (see FOotM post).

Hexed:  Black Suede Boots (see FOotM post), Plunge Neck Halters Pack (very sexy halters), Rock Chic skirt outfit (very clubby, love it), and Sam (another cute dress that rocks with awesome boots).

Encore:  Freshman (very cute sweater top over white shirt with a plaid skirt).

Phew.  I think that’s all.  I’ve spent my fair share of Lindens this past week.  Your turn.

Till the next shopping bill,

RECENT ITEMS: Halloween Prep…& Stuff

My apologies for missing a week in a Recent Items post.  Between a hectic RL schedule and running low on Linden fundage, there was not a lot of shopping going on *gasp*.  But alas, here is the next installment of the wonderful goodies in my expanding inventory (does that really say 21,457 items??).

Last Call & Celestial Studios:  I couldn’t stop myself.  I had to go.  After getting the photos from the update list, it was like fated to happen.  So I stopped by and picked up EVERY SINGLE NEW costume put out by Ginny & Starley.  I then wore each one at some point at my costume party event that day.  But they are just toooo cute and sexy.  So the pic below is showing off my favorites of the whole bunch (and trust me, it was a very hard decision!!).  Oh, and if you are wondering what I’m going as for Halloween, you’ll have to check Wednesday night’s post.  Because I’m not telling anyone. ;o)

~* Red Riding Ho, Sexy Witch, Sargeant Sexy *~

Mischief:  new build, new sim, new branding, new items, old items found new.  Check my Fashion post on Mischief to see what Janie is all about.

.:[ Blood ]:. :  on my search for Halloween goodies to decorate with, I happened upon this store and purchased an awesome set of pumpkins in all sizes and shapes.  If you stop by the club, you can see them.  Great set for a decent price…and they are copiable.

Lightening Video:  Cera and I have decided we are going to start a new thing:  once every weekend, we are going to watch a movie.  So our inaugural movie?  The Devil Wears Prada.  And Lightening Video was a great place to landmark for our needs.  The library is extensive and, for unlimited views, the price is very reasonable.

ETD:  lol ummm….so yeah, I had to host Demo Night.  And I had no Demos.  So I invaded ETD and loaded up on demo hair, shoes and clothes.  Needless to say, my demo self was very styling. ;o)

Rebel Hope:  picked up Sinful Purple to add to my original Sinful (naturally).  Also picked up the gorgeous Victoria Antique dress.  I absolutely love it.  Highly recommended.

And there you have it.  Inventory count:  21,832.

Till next time kiddies!!

RECENT ITEMS: Hair, Hair & More Hair yeah.  Anniversaries?  Awesome.  Freebies?  Love them more.  My inventory?  About ready to shoot me.  I have officially broken the 20K mark.  But I had a damn good time doing it.  30K anyone?

Here is what my little Lindens bought me this week (and some that didn’t need any Lindens..woot for freebies!)  I’m only gonna list like a handful (ok, maybe a little more) in detail and then a quick summary or you all will be reading for the next two months:

Calla:  freebie boxes galore with more than an ant army amount of items inside.  All the wonderful designers that helped celebrate Calla’s First Anniversay created what should be considered collectibles.  My favs in the bunch:  the Zhao shoes (OMG!  Ribbons!! Luvvvv it!!), the Spanish Remix outfit from Vitamin Ci (pretty colors!), and the Calla Necklace from Alienbear (did I mention I love detail work?).  Along with the freebies, I shoved my way through lag and harddrive overheating to grab some of the new designs Tigerlily & Haedon released and managed to grab some of the updos on sale.  My favorite new hair:  Spanish Jasmine.  It’s ummm…hot.  So here I am, wearing my favs from my Calla expidition this weekend.  Still going back to grab some more of what’s on sale, barring sim blockage and harddrive overload.


:  I’m calling it Runway Hair, even though its actual name is River.  Also, picked up a cute top called Mirli and a handful of poses and animated stands

Rising Phoenix Designs:  picked up three of Ariel’s new creations:  Poison Ivy, Witch & Don’t Deal.  Check out my fashion rundown post on Ariel’s great designs.  (I’ll be posting it tomorrow.)

Emma’s Poofs & More:  as I made my way down Ravenlynn’s (LVS) Halloween Street, searching for pumpkins (I need two more!), I found this store with a whole bunch of Halloween goodies and poofers.  And well, I ummm…went poofer crazy.  I probably have more poofers now than any sane woman should have.  Well, maybe.

Nicky Ree:  stopped by the new store to see what goodies on sale caught my eye.  Picked up a pretty lavender cocktail dress.  Now if I just had somewhere to wear it to.

Miriel:  at my BFF’s request, we stopped at Miriel’s to pick up some new pretty eyes.  And I don’t know why it took me so long to go there.  I now have two sets of pretty peepers for myself.  And I grabbed some freebies while I was there too.  If you are looking to get your pixelated peepers some prettiness of their own, I highly recommend stopping by Miriel’s.  You will not be disappointed.

Snapshots….wait, those don’t count.  Next.

Soda & SecondWave Apparel:  only linking these two together because they are right across the street from each other. :o) But…I picked up a yummy purple animal print pullover/tank combo from Soda.  And I filled my inventory with cami’s from SecondWave.

Others:  jewelry from JCNY, a dress from ICING, an Inksters Bear from SnowCone Creations, a pants outfit & a set of silks from Solange (I had to host!), an outfit from Goth1c0, hair from Armidi, some outfits & a pair of shoes from Last Call, pair of boots from Tesla, hair & a trench coat from Frangipani Designs, freebies & a jacket from PixelDolls, and various freebie items found on various Halloween hunts throughout SL.

As you can see…..I need Shoppers Anonymous.  As I keep telling you people.

And that closes out my first posting on Recent Items.

Now, who can I pay to organize all this?!?!?!?!
