Out with the Old, Out with the New

December 15, 2009

And by “out”, I mean out of the closet.  A total mix up of old and new today, but all beloved.  AND all serving one purpose… to set the mood for a day of hideous decorating.  I am actually too cheap to spend money on SL Christmas décor this year… that would take money out of my fashion budget, you know?  So that means I have been trotting out alllll sorts of hideously out of date SL decorations from years past.  Interesting in a historical way?  Yes.  Pretty?  Errr.  Ummmm.  Not usually. (What was I thinking??)

Anyhow, I will forge on with the FASHION notes, because unlike my plaid and poinsettia wreath there, I feel very sure that these clothes are perfectly lovely.  I’ll concentrate on the new…

First up: the mittens.  I cannot go another second without talking about my love for these big, wooly, embroidered things!  They were bought on a random visit to Frippery thanks to one holiday hunt or another, and they are new and completely wonderful.  You can’t see it here, but each mitten is embroidered differently.  I would apologize for my ill-chosen pose not showing you both hands, but then again… now you have a surprise waiting for you when you buy yours.

Second: the SOCKS.  Not revolutionary, you say? What would you think if I told you I plucked them off a TREE?  A sock TREE?   Aha!  I knew I would get your interest.  Slow Kitchen has hit on an irresistible Christmas idea: socks on a tree, just L$20 each.  Fatpacks for just L$80.  Amazing selection, from the ordinary (like these) to the truly original and amazing.  Different bulks, different materials, different lengths… it is the most sock fun ever.

More new details: Christmas glasses!  Leave it to Duboo to do the most funky, cool little Christmas glasses, and then offer them up in 3 variations WITH 3 Christmas tights as well.  Completely wonderful.  Plus, they have an option to attach on the left ear, which left me room for candy cane and eyelashes as well.  Huzzah!

Oooo, that reminds me: candy cane.  A Sanu interactive toy that not only looks great, but is kooky and fun for you and friends to play with by just clicking it.  Perfect for Christmas!

So, there you have it… another red and green outfit for your files.  Eventually I *will* want to wear other colors.  Just… not today.  After all, I am the best decorated thing in the house!  Heh.

Go have fun decorating yourselves, and I will see you soon!  MUAH!

Oldie Diner Flick

December 10, 2009

Just a little faux movie fun today, and a few new fave items of mine.  Think 50’s technicolor movie meets hipster girl looking for some breakfast?

First off, the would-be heroine is wearing a fantastic dress from Slow Kitchen.  I know– is there any other kind?  🙂  I particularly love the bright purple plaid of this one, which is the inspiration for the super-colored photos here.  So warm and wintery, but so bright and cute.  New boots from Gbberish add another level of brightness, with a furry texture and animal print, and the fit of a pair of favorite galoshes.  Loooove them!  Finally, to cover up the legs against the cold, I slipped on a pair of socks I picked up from one of Narwhal‘s newest outfits.  Alone or together, these outfit pieces can’t help but be squee.  It’s true.

Topping things off, quite literally– one of Maitreya‘s four new hairstyles.  This one is Alex, and the thick bangs are super cute, especially with Maitreya’s typically masterful soft texture.  Not too severe, but not too boring, you know?

Now… if only I had a MOVIE SCRIPT.  Or a director.  Yeah.  That would help.

Down Through the Chimney with Good St. Nick

December 9, 2009

OK, this may have to be my favorite Christmas carol now.  The Down the Chimney Hunt was not only a good bit of fun, I can’t BELIEVE the amount of quality loot on offer.  What a happy holiday surprise!  Thanks to all the designers who generously participated… and also, thanks to the organizers for getting so many different stores involved.  I shop a lot in SL, but it never ceases to happen that every hunt shows me a dozen or more stores I just never knew existed– and which I will be going back to again and again, natch.  The gift that keeps on giving, eh?

In the meantime, I have finally unwrapped all the spanking new prezzies the hunt gave me and managed to pull together a few outfits to spotlight some of my favorite new pieces.  Heeeeere we go!

(outfits and slurls and hunt details after the jump…)
