Festivals of Flowers and Stars

July 5, 2010

For me, summer festivals are the bestest part of the season.  Sure, I love the beach and vacation and lazing around on weekends drinking beer at barbecues.  But there is something perfectly wonderful about wandering around a festival with a crispy sugary piece of fried dough, browsing through shop stalls, playing games of chance, and people watching.  *happy sigh*

You will understand, then, why I am so FREAKING excited by the plethora of summer fashion festivals all over SL these days.  I haven’t been able to cover them all yet, or even the very biggest (that will be its own post).  Today I am highlighting two of my smaller, quirky faves.   Not just because they are filled with excellent shopping– though they are.  The design and feel of these festivals is so… *happy sigh*.  Believe me, you will have fun!

Sweet Little Pookie

June 8, 2010

Reason number 112 why SL is an outstanding place to live:  You can gorge yourself on sweets all you like, and still fit into all of your haute couture.  Wooohoo!

If you have a sweet tooth that needs some attending to, I strongly suggest you take a stroll over to Pookie Promenade, suetabulous yootz’s clever and cutey shopping mall.  Her Pookie Patisserie there is yummmmmmilicious, and the eating animations are a total riot!!  But the pixelated cupcakes aren’t the only sugary confections there– this collection of stores is absolutely the most sweet, yummy, girly, fun little band of fashion stalls I have run across in a long time.  It inspired a truly little girl mood, complete with squealing and a decided lack of self control as I parted with my Lindens… and stuffed my face.

(details, squees, and slurls after the jump…)

Pink’d for Half Price

Just a quick post to spread the word about Pink‘s half off dress sale– all the dresses at the store are just half price, and that means killer bargains!  Yay!!  If you haven’t experienced Pink’s dresses, then it is definitely a great way to start.  🙂  The sale is going on until August 31.

Here are a few of the dresses on sale– just a sampling, there are plenty more!

AND… I have saved the biggest treat for last!  The skin in these pics is from Beetlebones!  Squee!  That’s right, the cutie patootie suetabulous yootz has released her first skin, Amelie.  It is a lovely, soft skin with some great details:

I absolutely love the lips, which are so natural and feathered looking, and the body freckles make me sooooo happy!  Yay!  There are several makeups included in the pack, and on top of everything else it is extremely reasonably priced– more than worth the trip down to creator’s pavillion for a set.  🙂

Study Break

August 20, 2009

A couple of casual study looks today, pulled together from some new favorite pieces.  Some are new releases, some are just new to me, but all of them are ready for the library for a little studying, and then out for a couple of pitchers afterwards.  🙂

Outfit 1

OK, so a bare midriff may not be ideal for helping fellow students concentrate, but this new release from Decoy deserves a blank canvas!  It is an exquisitely detailed piece, and I love the cropped length, zipper action, and the nicely done prim sleeves.  The second highlight here for me is the messenger bag from Cherry.  This is total mod-fest!  You can choose the bag print, the leather color, and even choose the three pins on the flap.  Woot!  Fun for lots of moods and looks, and I love the messenger bag look, an oft-neglected bag type in SL.  I couldn’t resist the very-much-blogged Genius Peepers from Miel, either.  The tape on the bridge is so cute, and not overdone, and every single bit of this is color changeable, too.  The other new thing here is the Pink Fuel skin.  Sooooooo super sweet, with a fresh and rosy complexion and the most adorable freckles– squee!

Outfit 2

A little more color here, but just as comfy for pulling an all-nighter, no?  This whole look is based around a pair of pants I bought at Niniko a couple months ago, and for some reason have never blogged!  What a crime!  These are such an adorable mish mash of patterns, and the silhouette is simple and current, and it comes with a pretty great belt, too.  I used this opportunity to put on a new acquisition of mine, the super tight, short cardigan from Pig.  Gawwwd, I love Pig!  It looks so casually chic over this adorable Jellyfish tee from Duboo, a Designer’s United event piece.  The cutey-patootie hair from Ohmai makes me smile whenever I wear it, and I think it has met its soulmate in cuteness with these Miel flats.  How is it possible for pixels to look so comfy and squooshy??  LOVE!

So, study hard, drink lots of coffee, speed type the last six pages of your paper on your laptop, and at 2 am head out to the ‘Stend for a couple shots of tequila with the boys of Pi Kappa Alpha!

(Ohhh, can you sense my nostalgia for college creeping in?  I loved study breaks!)

Happy shopping!
