Vancouver Frost #46

I was doing a little bit of exploring around the grid and came across this highly adorable sim called Let It Snow! It’s a great place to go to mingle with other avis, ski, use as a backdrop for photos or just relax and take in the creative scenery.  And with a name like “Let It Snow!”, you can’t help but to become inspired to create a look that complements the sim’s theme…..at least I can’t. So of course I got busy pulling this look together. I want to start off with Reign’s Kaylee booties that come with these thigh high socks. I’m not sure if you’ve ever shopped online for thigh high socks but I have and it wasn’t a fun task at all. I wasted a lot of lindens for stuff that looked great in the ads and then look like garbage on my avi’s body. Well not the Kaylee booties.

The designers/creators over at Reign definitely are masters of their craft and made a superb product. You’re getting two versions in one….the bootie by it’s self and the version with the socks attached to the bootie which I’m wearing below. The socks only come in white and it would be really awesome if they decide to update this boot with a color change hud for the socks. Nonetheless, you will not be disappointed with your purchase of the Kaylee bootie. Another high note I want to mention is this hair/hat combo from !Oleander. I know I say this in almost every single post but I love this hair! I was searching for hairs with beanies but nothing I came across got me excited until I came across Willow. This style is exactly what I envisioned in my head. I really think this look came together well and I highly suggest you guys stop by the beautiful snow-filled sim with your loved ones as soon as time permits.

Hair Today Gone Tomorrow #45

Hey my beautiful people! So lets get right into it. This hair is EVERYTHING!!! I stopped by Hair O Logy’s monthly event for the very first time looking for a particular hair I saw on my Facebook timeline and I ran into this beauty from enVogue. This hair is everything you would ever want in a bob guys. I’m so in love with Gisselle that I damn near shed a tear over her (seriously). As you can see, I’m still on my redhead kick but I switched it up a bit and opted for a red ombre. Honey…..this wig is slayed to tha gawds! It’s just too fierce for words. Anywho, I picked up one other style from Hair O Logy and to be honest, I really wasn’t impressed with the selections that were available for purchase 😦 but I’m sure next month will be much better. Now this cute lil dress I picked up from Majesty is bomb.com for real.

Funny story though,  I was at the Kustom 9 sim trying to get a sneak peek at everything before the sale starts and I noticed that Majesty as a satellite store on the sim so I go in and find that the dress comes in teal. I also picked up a really cute black stole. Fast-forward….. So I’m checking Majesty’s landmark to make sure it is correct for the blog and I tp to The Factory instead. The Factory is owned by the Majesty creator along with a partner. Lo and behold everything in the store is 50L!!! So I’m shopping away like a mad woman and buying everything in sight. I turn the corner and what do I see? I see my skater dress that I just paid 199L for on sale for only 50L LOL! I won’t lie….I felt a lil salty about the situation but I racked up on so much stuff in that store I couldn’t even stay mad. Now this is a going out of business sale so I would highly suggest stopping by The Factory immediately because I do not know when this sale will end and I would also suggest just picking up the skater dress from there since you will save on lindens.

A side note, I mentioned earlier that I also purchased a super cute stole from Majesty but it did not fit me well at all. And to be honest, I’m not 100% sure if a demo was available or not…..I just purchased without any thought since it was so fly. I would highly recommend you trying the demo if available because it’s a no modify item and it does not come with a resizer so purchase at your own risk.

The Elite #31

Hey loves! The weekend is finally here *does my happy dance*. So I’m coming to you with a quick and chic style from Tee*fy (featured @ Collabor88). These are separates guys but they mesh so well together you’d think this was a dress. There are plenty of colors to choose from to mix and match both the top and that sexy skirt. I wanted to keep this look very simple so I paired it with the Coven ring set from LaGyo (also @ Collabor88) and this super cute hair I picked up from Exile….which was also at Collabor88. I really should have just titled this post Collabor88. Anywho, I really love this look and I hope you enjoy the styling as much as I did putting it together for you.

Bish Whet??

Hey there beautiful people! I’m back with another look that I really, really, really enjoyed creating. Can we just talk about this hair/hair base combo I put together from Little Bones and Gaja for a minute please? These two items were made for each other. I’m loving the sleek high ponytail with these baby hairs that are on fleek hunty. But on a serious note, I really think both creators should come together and do a collaboration on a few wigs for us. And another thing, I must have been living under a rock because who knew Vitiligo tattoos were available??? I’m slacking y’all but I promise to do better *smiles*. Overall I love the way this entire look came together and I hope you see some items you’d enjoy playing around with in your own inventory closets. Much love everyone. ❤

Hello beautiful people! This past week was pretty freaking awesome when it comes to fashion events around the grid and boy did I shop til I dropped…literally LOL. I fell asleep a few times while up super late shopping for the perfect pieces to put this look together for you. Can I just say that the Mahi Gladiator Sandals from Reign are EVERYTHING?!?! I absolutely love the tri-color metal bead detailing. These sandals along with the Tropical Dress from Pixicat really gave off a late 60’s or flower child vibe to me so I ran with the theme. I really enjoyed piecing this look together and I hope you enjoy it as well. Happy shopping loves!
