You're jokin'! You're jokin'! I Can't Believe My Eyes!

And so, my lovies, it indeed has arrived, the day of days in this wonderful month- Halloween. As such, we will continue our exploration of Nightmare Before Christmas songs with one of my favorties.. 'Cause I'm Mr. Oogie Boogie Man, and you ain't going nowhere!

Right, so I wanted to do a classy, yet scary look for Halloween, well, my first of three posts for today. So, I did what any sensible person /would/ do and headed over to the Costume Ball, and checked out what they had.. I have to admit, I grabbed a lot of things, like the hair from Wasabi Pills which is completely adorable, some other things I'll be blogging about, and this little number by Happy Undead. It's called the Black Widow dress, and the corset work, and the way it fits with the dress, I love it. It's also got a cool feature I hadn't seen before. The sizes, they're divided like.. for me, I'm normally an XS size in sl, but in here, the XS sizes come as XS-S XS-M and XS-L. For me, I landed in the XS-M size, which.. I have to say, I love this system because it makes the clothes look closer to your shape, which is one of the bad things/good things about mesh.. it kind of resizes your av to the clothes at times. 

"It's funny, I'm laughing! 
You really are too much!
And now, with your permission,
I'm going to do my stuff."

The World is Not Enough

So, going through the grid, I found a great place for men's clothes that also has some female goodies, and well, I thought, why not?

You might have heard of it, it's a little place called Kauna and their clothes... well, they're to die for! The opened shirt for women it's a must have for all girls out there that like to raid their man's closet. And the military jacket that they have? Extremely cute! And not only that.. it has limitless combinations since it comes with an HUD that you can control the color of every piece of it, like the actual coat, the strands, the buttons.. so.. you can make every wacky combination your heart desires.

Today I'm going to be showing you my favorite looks, a suit for me, and the opened shirt for women, which make for an extremely sexy look for all. Classy and sexy, reminds me of James Bond. And since the model's name is James for my guy.. well, kinda fits, right?

Also, last note for Kauna, it's extremely reasonably priced. The suit was around 800L, and the shirt around 250L on me? So.. not that big of a dent in your pocket for the quality mesh work that they do.

Blowing in the Wind

Mon Tissu, in no secret, is also one of my favorite stores to go in this grid.. I seriously think I own everything they have.. not in every color, but.. well, every single style, I think I own. Specially when it comes to their mesh.. I love their mesh work, some of the best clothes wide in the grid in my opinion.

So.. it's no surprise either that I say that you /must/ grab their new pants and coat. It's really the right start to the winter/fall holidays. And the mesh work on it.. it's soooo fabulous. I'm seriously head over heels for the coat and pants.

Also, Tomorrow Today is a charity event going on in order to help resident Matchbox Resident get a dental procedure that he needs. Most of the money made in this event will be donated to the cause. Truth, Blah, Wasabi Pills, and many other big name designers have given their creations for this cause. My favorite by far was Truth, who gave a hairstyle fat pack for only 300L. Now.. I'm not talking a color pack.. I'm talking full out fat pack, all colors, and it's an adorable mesh hair style. So just for that, it's worth going.

You Got Me Begging You For Mercy

So, I bet you guys have heard of a little store called Apple May Designs. Before discovering Essences, it was my go to place for skins. Cheap, and adorable, and for the freckles look that I love, just a nice tat layer over it, and voila. However.. when I heard there were hidden goodies in the store for 25L, I had to do a quick trip down there to see what was there.. and I was not disappointed.

What did I find? This amazing little skin, and only 25L! Yeah, it's adorable, and it comes in all shades, from pale, to goth, to tanned, and dark. Gotta love it. And two make up styles for each tint of the skin. Apple May has me begging for mercy now!

I also picked up this little get up because.. well, have you seen it? Completely adorable, and I don't even like maxi skirts. Also, if you haven't gone... Exile has new hair styles, and they got me broke D:. Still, totally worth it, some adorable wavy styles, which are worth a double take, and finally, got some accessories this time around by Maxi Gossamer that made my day, and for 199L, it doesn't even break the bank like some of the accessories stores leave you, and I think it's the perfect pairing for this outfit and the make up of this adorable skin.

Labels or Love

I effing love new releases! And these two stores are some of my favorites on the grid. So.. check it!

It's been forever since Maitreya came out with something new, and well.. I've been very very very sad about this, but! I got a group notice, and it left my mouth watering with beautyfulness. Yes, I'm aware that's not a word, but it is in Sash's world. Either way, I was left with my mouth watering over this beautiful dress that just screams fall to me. It's casual, and it can also be worn with a pair of jeans to make it look more like a shirt, or you can also just wear it as a dress with a belt.. really, there is no limit on what you can do with this to make it your own, and to me, that's the best thing you can have in a piece of clothing, the capability to be versatile  Get the most out of your money. Let's face it.. in Sl, we change often, specially when it comes to personal style, the fact that you can grab a piece and transfer it from x look to the next.. it's always a plus.

In other news.. Truth.. What can I say about Truth that I haven't already? Their mesh textures are to die for. Dying. Dying. Yup, I love the work truth has brought to the table lately, and they came out with three new styles that I'm a huge fan of. So, here they are for your personal enjoyment.

I Sense There's Something in the Wind.. That Seems Like Tragedy's at Hand

Ah, another Halloween themed post, because there haven't been enough around the blogging circuit, right? :P

Well, This one has to do with Plastik, and something that will probably only be available for today. Lazy Sunday is once again upon us, and it is Plastik today that wins it, for 75L You get an amazing little dress, two different pairs of eyes, shoes, a pumkin outfit, and three different mesh tops. Sure, a little Halloweenish on all of them. But come on guys! 75L!

I'm kind of going to be focusing more on the stuff that can be worn year round, like these amazing mesh eyes, and this amazing little dress. Sure, the dress has a skull, but come on! It's adorable, and seriously.. it's ornate enough so that it can pass for year round wear. So, Plastik, thanks for making me feel like Halloween is Christmas, and with that, we will bring another Nightmare Before Christmas related post.

Also, on the background, that would be one of my favorite sims too, the Mischief Managed sim, and right at the entrance of the Dark Forest, because nothing says Halloween more than going for a midnight stroll in the Dark Forest.

I did tell you this was my favorite movie of all time, didn't I? You'll just have to deal with it, lovies. :P.

Saturday Look, brought by The Secret Store

Ok, so it's not a secret, I adore the Secret Store, their styles are uber chic, so cute, and I am completely in love with their designs. So today.. I really just dug through my inventory and tried to clean it out... and forgot some of the old cute stuff that I had bought over the past.

For example, this old hair style by D!va, normally, I'll admit, not the biggest D!va fan, but this hair from collabor88 is super cute! And it's mesh.. and I'll say something about mesh... mesh is the best thing that has ever happened to hair! I mean.. no longer having your hair stick inside you through shots.. gotta love that.

I also found this old skirt, and older top still for sale at The Secret Store.. Again.. normally I'd flip because it's not mesh.. but.. never sticks inside of my body, looks cute, and is so well textured, all I have to say is.. Love. It's odd, I really am an advicate for shopping mesh only now.. but.. I have to admit, there are some none mesh items that still make me drool.

Good Grief Charlie Brown! And more TDRB Goodies

I just love Fridays, because there are so many things you can get, and for low prices too!

So, let's start with Fi*Fridays, they have some pretty good selections out this week, but by far, my favorite were the shirts by Reckless Ambitions, they have one for all my childhood favorites, Rocko's Modern Life, Hey Arnold!, Beetlejuice, and Charlie Brown.. but, I'm sorry to say, I had to go with Charlie Brown on this one.. sure, I'm a freak for all of them, and a total dork about them all, I mean, who doesn't miss Helga and Arnold! That bubblegum statue of the football head! Love! And Tim Burton... Yeah, but nothing says to me Halloween like Charlie Brown, and their little sweater shirt was the perfect thing to celebrate Halloween. Paired with the Jeans from TokiD for TDR Blue, which are amazing cus you can pair them with boots and not have any of the jeans poking out.. well, the look was to die for!

Now, TDR Blue also had this little corset that I fell in love with from Baiastice, which is one of my favorite stores. It has a lovely little pattern, and it comes with the matching collar, which gives for a very sexy cute look for this Halloween, of course with a little sophisticated air that I love about Baiastice.

All in all, a great Friday, I'd say, lots of new goodies, and it didn't put a huge dent into my wallet! From casual to elegant, gotta love this Friday.

Thank God It's Friday!

And so another Friday comes about, and we're left with many options on where to go, but.. for me, the most important stop on any Friday it's Fifty Linden Fridays. Oh.. God.. Yes..

Amazing stores, and stuff for fifty linden.. need I need say more? It's a shopaholic's heaven. My only complain about this round... So...few....stores.... Left me all SADFACE! But it's ok, because House of Fox made it all up to me with this little yellow dress. Cute, adorable, and soooo me. I want to hug it. In fact, I'll make my avatar do it right now.

In all seriousness though, they have a few good things in there, so it's worth giving it a look, but by far my favorite number was this dress than I'm blogging about. Normally, I hate yellow. I hate mustard colors, and I hate yellow. But I'll make an exception for this dress.

Also, Zodiac is out, if you haven't heard, and they have the cutest hair from Alice Project. 250L, and unlimited looks, which is one of my favorite things about Alice Project. They have the Steph hair look, one with bangs, and one without. The bangs didn't quite fit right with my avatar, so I got the second look, and paired it with the adorable HOF dress. Enjoy.

Kidnap the Sandy Claws!

I know, I'm obsessed with that movie, and I probably will quote it during the Christmas break too! I love Halloween, and I love Nightmare Before Christmas, so.. GET USED TO IT :P


And so, another Halloween goodie for you guys today. I was browsing the marketplace, all bored like, and found this cheapie by Redgrave, a small Halloween Cardigan that's perfect for the holidays. It's not.. overly festive, but the little skull that looks like Jack in the back does add for a very nice touch.

I went for the overly casual look today, just paired it with a tank from Tres Blah, and some mesh jeans, and one of my favorite hairstyles from Truth, Stevie, and voila!

This Is Halloween!

"In this town, we call home,
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song.

In this town, don't we love it, now?
Everybody's waiting for the next surprise!

Round that Corner, man hiding in the trash can,
Something's waiting now to pounce,  and how you'll...

Scream!"

Oh, how I love Halloween, it'll make me recite the Nightmare Before Christmas over and over again. Nothing like the love story of Sally and Jack..  So, I noticed Halloween is upon us, and I have yet to do a single post about this amazing time of the year, so I'm going to start with an amazing gift from *G Field* Which I hope you will enjoy, because I very much did so. The style is very similar to a dress I blogged in the past, but.. this one is halloween themed, and it comes with the tights, and the little bat bow that I'm wearing. A very cute and adorable look if you're more into the cute look and not so much into horror like myself.

NEW! Discount Room in Tea Time!

So, yesterday I bragged about my new little find, *Tea Time*. Well, today I'm over at Crack Den.. just minding my own RP business, when suddenly, the new group drops down a notice.. and to my delight, it was a sale going in this little gem that I found. Yup, I got a note card, and it read:

"New Discount room *Tea Time* Super Sale!!!
The tp for the room is next the Mainstore Door ^_^



Kisses:*
*Tea Time* owner
Eloindir Davi & Tea Xofan <3"

I said "Holy Cow, bai." And teleported over to Tea Time as fast as you can say "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" And made my way there. They had a lot of cute stuff! But my favorite was this little Mexican style dress for only 50L. AND MESH. And did I mention it was pretty? Normally I'm not much of the boho chic type gal, but seriously, this was too cute to pass out on, so I got it, along with other couple things. But my favorite so far is really that little Mexican style dress that I paired with some jeans and some boots, and a little more.. indy type hair style.. Result? Adorable.

Tuesday Amazingness.

And so the week continues, despite our attempts to slow them down.. Ok, well, for many of you, the slowing down part was the weekend, and now.. yeah, I change my mind.. weekends go fast, and weekdays go uber slow :/ But, such is life, and welcome to Tuesday, I suppose?

So, what do we have in store for us today? Ah, well, I'm glad you asked. Tuesday, or rather this Tuesday, is freebie day. Now, you might have heard of Celoe, it's a little store in Mayfair, right next to my other favorite store, Mon Tissu, that specializes in mesh. Seriously, their mesh is quite amazing. Great textures, good flow.. not uber thick like some of the mesh builds out there that leave you wondering just wtf. In all honesty, I do love this store, I just wish it wasn't so darn expensive.

So, I blogged one of their freebies, and now this is the other gift that they have out, it's a dress, tube dress, very simple, but still so very lovely! I paired it up with one of the older collabor88 pumps, and some freebie accessories from Donna Flora, which is just an amazing accessory store in the grid.. probably one of the best reasonably priced jewelry stores in grid. And also an up do of [elikatira]. Love how it came out.

Monday Morning is Tea Time

So, here I am in sl, wondering what, oh what, will I blog today? SO I hear of a little hunt going on, The Autumn Hunt, and I start checking out the stores. I go down the list of the stores, checking them out, one my one, until I stumble upon a little gem called *Tea Time*.

And oh, how joyous I was! I'll be honest, I had never heard of Tea Time until today, and I'm very sadface at this fact, because their stuff is amazing! Not only that but they have a VIP group, you join for 25L, and they have group gifts, and a monthly group gift. HOLY COWS!

So, of course, I'm going to blog about this little hidden gem, because it was truly amazing. I have a couple of the group gifts on, the jeans, and the bag, and the shirt is only 5L on the Autumn Hunt, which I'll be blogging more about lately.

Sunday Nights with Grace

And we close out the weekend with another dear friend of mine, Grace. Too bad, so sad, the weekend ends, and we all go back to work.

Except for me. I don't work, so I'll sit here and point at you as you get ready to go to work tomorrow. Hahahaha.

Ok, enough meaness, and on to goodness, right? Right. We'll close out with the Attic this weekend. Normally I just catch a glimpse of it in Seraphim.. and nothing catches my interest, but this week.. well, Exile was there, and as you all know, I'm a total hair freak. And Baiastice was there too! And Piddle.. and Teefy, so I got off of my lazy av bum and went to check it out. The results are on my av! Check it out! My Attic

New from Alice Project, and Free from Celoe.

So, by now, you should have already figured out that 3/4 things in my inventory is mesh. Sure, normally it's a little more expensive, and what not.. but.. Have you seen the mesh detail capacities when you find a good store? Move over sculpties, only noobs wear that stuff now :P

Now, now, before you jump at me for that statement, no, I'm not dissing on some of the sculpts out there, there's quite a few that are very, very well built. Take a look at some of the old Burley hair designs. They're amazing! But if you compare it to the styles that we're able to achieve with mesh.. there's no comparison. Though, I will also say this.. mesh does nothing if you don't have a good mapped out texture to go with it.

Anyways, before I get to the whole detail crap about mesh vs. sculpts, allow me to introduce you to one of my favorite mesh stores- Celoe. It's cute, adorable, well textured, well built. Expensive as heck. But fear not, my lovies! Sash has found you freebies from Celoe. I know! *le gasp* A freebie from what I consider one of the best mesh clothing stores in grid, all you have to do is join the group, which.. amazingly, is free too, and pick up one of the two freebies, right now I'm wearing one of them, the top, which is one of my favorite pieces of clothing that I own. Cute and chic!

Also! Newness from Alice Project. I have to say, I'm seriously loving their new hairstyles. One of the things about me that you should know, I'm uber picky about hair. It wasn't until recently that I gave Alice Project a second look, I was more of a Burley/few Exile/Truth/one Wasabi Pills/Lelutka hairstyle kinda gal, so when I saw this girl in sim, with this uber cute hairstyle, and asked where it's from, I got directions to Alice Project, and was shocked. I went broke that day. Again, I know I blogged about this the other day, but to crazy hair color changers like me.. their system is a life saver and linden saver too in the long run, comes with a blank canvas, and an HUD, you load up the texture you want from the HUD, and voila! You have the new color you wanted, without spending the extra linden. Love! And you can also make your own wacky hair combos if you're into that.. me? More of a mono color type gal. This hairstyle is Reema, available at the Fair.

Morning and Happy Sunday, Lovies!

And so, alas, we have come to Sunday. Yes.. yes.. I know, work tomorrow, and boohoo. BUT! Fear not! Sundays means.. Lazy Sundays! And who doesn't love some goodies for 75L or so? I know I totally do. So I hit it off as soon as I woke up, and what I found, it left me wanting for more D: Not in a disappointed manner, but.. well, disappointed because I couldn't shop more. Sadface!

Right off the bat we started off well, they had Miamai this week, which is one of my favorite stores, Gato, Evolve, and Valentina E designs, so yeah.. I was already drooling at the store list.. I think if it would have had The Secret Store again I might have orgasmed or something. So.. I came up with a cute look for you guys for a Lazy Sunday.. and even used one of the poses from Miamai. Go check out the Lazy Sunday round up, for a full list and lm's, please go here: SERAPHIM!

Oh, and yeah.. if you're a cheapie freak like I am.. Seraphim is a great place to find out sales and things you might not have been aware of! And with a preview of what they have to see if they're a fit for your style, or a total waste of time. Go check it out if you haven't, and bookmark it, because I don't know what I would do without that website.

On my way to Hogwarts

Another shot in the awesome sim of Mischief Managed. Seriously, if you haven't gone, GO! Awesome RP, and awesome build. Anyways, on to the good stuff.

I really didn't know what I was going to blog about today, I was drawing a complete blank on what to do, until a little notice came out from Truth. Seriously.. I was never a big fan of Truth until recently, when they started making mesh hair styles. Granted, most of the styles this week didn't fit the style.. one of them did, and I totally fell in love! There was one, Rashinda, that totally inspired this whole look. Cute, chick, and classy. So me! So, thank you, Truth Hawks, for making these amazing hair drooling styles as of lately!

More TDR Goodness

So.. I went back to The Dressing Room tonight.. just to check out what other goodies there were. I was not disappointed!

It should not be a secret that I'm totally in love with Essences skins, the highlights and shadows of the skin are phenomenal, and I completely adore how they make the noises, and the small freckles and mole details... Yeah, I'm a fan. So, the new skin that they have there.. at a bargain price of 75L or so.. Yeah, totally worth it. I swear, sometimes you find the best skins at the cheapest of prices.. when skins are normally the most expensive thing in the world.

I also found a cute new tee, which is more.. elegant and professional, which totally fits me, so I had to get it. I paired it up with some pumps and the Oxford skirt of Mon Tissu. And I thought that the black hair looked better with the skin rather than the normal blonde that I wear, so... I totally went with my Mischief Managed character, which is a totally awesome Harry Potter sim you should check out, and gave her a makeover, slightly so, anyways. If you haven't been to Mischief Managed, it's actually an amazingly well built sim, full mesh build, that really lets you feel as if you were indeed in Hogwarts. Just the build alone is worth checking out.

Fridays with Sansa

It's friday again... and I think this would make my blog a week old? Or something like that.. I think it's a week either today or tomorrow, though it already feels like I'm doing it forever. The only reason I know it's a week it's because its Fi*Friday.. Fifty Linden Friday, and TDR. Can you tell Fridays are my favorite shopping day?

In all honesty though, I was a little sad face at this week's fashion selection.. Just wasn't much that I really cared for, however, I did find a little number at the TDR, where I snuck in early.. I know, I know.. Bad Sash.. But I always do it, so deal with it. Illmatic joins the TDR line up this friday with this little cute partial mesh number that I have on. Totally love it! mixed with some pumps, even with all the cut out, which normally I'm not a big fan of.. it looks cute, classy, and fashion forwards.

I grabbed my friend Sansa along with me today, because.. I wanted to mess around with photoshop some more.. watched some tutorials, not a big fan! Stupid white halos. Anyways, after hours of messing with pictures, this is the final print. Deal with it.

Echo Sale!

Echo is having a sale! Everything is 25L or less. I know, right! :O!

In all honesty, they do have some good stuff, and the mesh quality is good, however, it's a little too shiny for my tastes, like.. pvc shiny at times, which is kind of a huge turn off for me, but I did manage to find a good few cuties to share with you, even a non mesh shirt that I just fell in love with!

Also.. Magika. New hair. One good thing about magika.. you don't have to buy a fat pack.. it comes with an HUD that you wear, and chose your color. Not as many colors to chose from as Alice Project, and if you want to go wild with your style, you have to buy pack 2 and pack 3, but for someone like me that changes hair color often depending to skin, and I only wear kind of natural hair colors.. so pack 1 is perfect for me! Anyways, three new styles, and I'm wearing one of them today, the one that I just fell in love with.

Cracked Mirror, Cracked Spirit

So, remember how I said that Cracked Mirror had an amazing subscriber gift tee? Yup, I'm putting it up. It's completely free, and really well done, simple, and cute! And who doesn't love V for Vendetta? Now if only they had a Kill Bill one D:. Talking of which.. KILL BILL 3 COMING OUT. WOOT!

So, just because my character got a little beat up in Crack Den, a fabulous rp community sim that if you haven't gone, you must! Most of the scenery I use for the blog comes from there :x So props to Nadir Taov for the amazing build <3. Anyways, just because of that, I'm going to be keeping the bruise tat layer which is cute in a sad way.

G Field Newness

So, as I've said before.. I'm a sucker for anything vintage, so when I saw the newness from G Field, I ran and got it in a jiffy. It also has a matching hat you can buy for it.. But.. I don't know, I have always hated the fact that you need to modify your hair, and the hat, and spend about three hours making it look right just so you can wear it! It's for that reason alone that I only buy hats that come with hair attached to them! >< Someone should look into this problem, I swear.

Today, I'm also in love with this Alice Project hair, which is gorgeous. Gives a certain innocent feel that makes it look rather cute.

I also bought a new pair of shoes from G Field to match the dress, because I am a shopaholic like that.. the end result.. well, adorable!

Quoth the raven, "Nevermore"


Halloween is almost upon us lovies, and today.. I got a simple notice from Seraphim.. about a certain Halloween sim, and looking hot. I like Halloween. And I like looking hot. Okay.

So, I ventured. Granted, there wasn't much that I cared for in there.. But it did have some really good places join, like Leezu, Cracked Mirror, and Alice project, and some nice Halloween pose sets for everyone. Not a waste of time, and I found a single skirt that I fell in love with by Crack Mirror, among other things.

I will not lie, I'm a lover of everything Edgar Allan Poe. His stories are chilling, and when I think of Halloween, it's always him that comes to mind, when I saw the Poe shirt.. I just had to get it. 200L and it's mesh, and you can also pick up the vendetta shirt for free! Just join the subscriber. In fact.. I would advise you do, because.. well, sadly, the maker forgot to put the alpha layer for the shirt in the pack that you buy, but the one for the freebie fits in quite perfectly.

Ingenue Love.

It should not be a mystery by now that my style is more.. retro? Vintage? Yeah, totally vintage. I don't  care for showing more skin, for some reason, I care more about the older style.. longer skirts, classy do's.. Love it all.

With that being said.. have you guys heard of Ingenue? By far one of my new favorite stores in the grid. Found them in collabor88, and I swear, I'm hooked to this store. My newest drug and reason for all those linden spent : (. Ok.. not so much of a sad face for me.. just for my husband's wallet.

I went today to just check out what they had, and see if they had anything that I didn't already own.. I settled for a cute dress a little outside of my plain, none unicolor anti pattern outlook on clothing, and honestly, not disappointed!

The Secret Store. Shhh.

Ok, so one of my all time favorite stores in sl for quite a while has been The Secret Store. Maylee Oh is extremely talented, specially now that her items have.. Oh, God, dare I say it? Mesh. Yes, I'm a total mesh whore and I'm not afraid to say it. I believe mesh is the best thing to happen in sl in all of the six years or so that I've been in it.

Anyways, if you haven't checked out The Secret Store, you have to! There's a new release out now, a small babydoll that is extremely cute and totally vintage. They have also the oversized sweater that I blogged about earlier still for 75L, so if you haven't grabbed it. GO! Go before she realizes she left it out and takes it down. There's also a new mini that came out a while ago.. and the vintage slip dress.. To die for! So here are a couple looks that I pieced together with her work. Again, if you haven't gone to The Secret Store.. GO NAO.

More Goodies from Cinema

I keep flipping through my inventory trying to come up with looks that haven't been shown from the cinema that make for a good style. So.. I made this one!


Normally, I'm a sucker for vintage, I'll be the first one to say that.. but the shirt is so stylish.. cute, and simple, that makes for an excellent look with some pumps and some jeans to go with it. Or, you could be the.. daring type.. and go without pants. It's long enough to cover your hooha and your butt, more than some of the dresses out there in sl.. Just.. I suppose I'm too conservative in my sl. Shirt is from [KAMOURASKA], a new store I found through the cinema event, and I'm totally in love with it, from the shown shoulders to the little ties.. just really adorable.

Cinema- A la Noir.



So, I finally went to the Cinema, which is a pretty cool fair going on.. and for sure worth spending the time to check out. They have clothes, for both men and women, furniture, and poses. Whatever you might need, they got it! And they have it in a variety of themes. From horror, to XXX, to romance and fantasy, so there's really something for everyone. Kind of like the Vintage fair, but.. more for everyone.

So, I checked it out.. and I really did fall in love with this little number from Indrya Designs. Normally there's not much that she has that I care for.. but seriously, the mini skirt, with the see through, it's to die for. And Biastice has the most adorable shoes ever! Ok, I might have spent over 10k Linden in that fair.. and not only that.. I spent about four hours this morning walking around. But it was totally worth it.

Also.. did you know truth has new hair out? Normally I was anti truth. Too many hairstyles that looked exactly the same as they did years ago. But they're stepping up their game, and their new mesh styles.. I hold my breath until I get the next notice out for new hair.
