Halloween part 1

My friend the costume whore in hooped skirts insisted I dress up like a princesse for our pre festive Halloween parties. I'd only do this for her!!!

My costume obsessed girlfriend who shall remain a bit faceless and nameless for that matter,drags me all over NYC and outside of it as well. She is way kind and full of treats,sometimes I worry she's giving away all her candy to me and not saving enough for herself. I bought these delectable truffles the other day trying hard to impress her. She liked them but was full so I ended up eating 95% of them.

StyleCard: REDGRAVE, Oh My!

REDGRAVE has always been a favorite of mine for the quality and the cohesiveness of their lines of clothing, skins and footwear. Recently I was contacted by Viola Leigh, the creator of the latest series of footwear under the REDGRAVE label, and have been lucky enough to see the new offerings close-up. The result, 4 great new styles and 4 StyleCards for me! (click on images to enlarge)

The first of these new shoes is actually referred to as a the Winter Boot (shown in orange), but it's one sexy combo of an open toed pump and a knit and buttoned upper portion. The cozy upper with its slouchy appearance and 3 oversized buttons actually comes with part attached to the shoe and the topper as a separate attachment. I paired these with a sexy Jersey Dress from League, which I wasn't nuts about when someone suggested I buy it, but completely love on my av. The Mirai Fuka Hat and Hair are just too cute and I tossed in my Lassie lunchbox from Illuminaire which I am not certain is still available... but you get the idea.

Next in line is the hot little sandal called the Glamour Heels (here in blue). This is the perfect little shoe for a hot club look, and comes in 2 packs featuring the gold and silver variations in the color you choose, gotta love that kind of thinking. I loved wearing mine with the *M*A*ii*K*I* leggings in yellow and this great tank from Kenzie&Co. The chunky necklace and bracelet from ICoN round out my dance floor ready look.

I cannot hide my love of leopard print, and these Wildcat Heels sure feed that desire. I choose the gold variation here, but I adore the pink and blue versions too. Sexy open toes, double wrapped ankles and the sleek metallic gold heel make these a favorite. Worn with, what I think is a first for me on the blog, a dress from PIN UP Dolls, which is my own creation (as my 'business' avatar Pin Upshaw). I am not really into blogging my own stuff but made an exception here because I loved the way the shoes worked with my 'Leopard Love' cocktail dress. My accessories are a great necklace and earrings set from Caroline's. Hair is Armidi.

Last on the list, and certainly not least, the Patent Leather Heels, which come in super shiny patents and croc embossed versions too. These are a great looking shoe, I am a fan of the white contrasting trim and ties, and the unique style of a straight laced look with a sexy open toe. Here the black croc version is paired with a mash-up of items including a Last Call top worn with the cute newness of a pencil skirt from Fetch Alternative. A simple beaded necklace from Ume Mode and the sexy Detour hair rounded out this last style of the series.

I fine crop of footwear from REDGRAVE, and all very reasonably priced. Please visit the store to see these, and the full color range, close-up.

Designers get your stuff in OYSTER

Oh my God. I'm listening to "Une Autre Bricque Dans le Mur" by IAM. French rappers.

The song has a sample... of Cher's "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves." I didn't think it was possible to be in love with a song. Jeeeeeeeeeeez.

The mind, it explodes.

In the future...

My newest DIY project has revealed itself... I was getting ready for class and discovered a HUGE hole in the armpit region of my GAP "grandpa" cardigan. When I say huge, I mean I could fit my arm through the hole without a problem... After getting over my initial disappointment, I figured: since the hole was pretty neat (the thread connecting the sleeve to the body had come undone), why shouldn't I remove the sleeves? And then I thought, "I'm definitely not going to wear a sweater vest, and I already have one... why don't I sew some furry material on the inside?"

So! I will be the owner of a furry vest/gilet-looking thing. As soon as I get/find a sewing machine.

Rigger from JCS

Following on from the recent Axion release, Eponymous Trenchmouth of Jeepers Creepers has updated an older boot in his range with the renewed version of the Rigger boot.

This Boot is a more heavy duty workboot style, and it comes with the same resizing option as available in the Axion and other recent JCS releases.

My personal favorite was the Black Cherry version, as they were the version in which I could see the smooth texture in all its glory. They were also a nice match to these Shai pants I was wearing as well, so I didn't even need to change.

The range of colours is comprised of Black, Black Cherry, Brown, Desert Camo, Field Camo and also a work boot option, which has a light tread instead of black. I was almost tempted to go find a brickie's labourer outfit for these boots, but time was against me in that quest although if I ever stumble across one, I will wear one with these boots for sure. All in all another release that increases once again the versatile JCS range and a welcome addition to any mans shoe collection.

The next look consist of this weeks free dress which included shoes from NessnMo, skin from the *OC* ORAGE Creations ($1) hunt, and yay! for the rotten apples game at Sn@tch because I snagged the garnet of the Edie style of hair (and hey, the entire store is 1/2 off right now so go show Ivey some slub!).


And look at those lovely eyes. They're from the sweetie pie Kekona of ::EbiShop:: totally free!
The dress from NessnMo is seriously hot and entirely made of prims. This is a small, but cute store that is also having an amazing sale.

Next up the killer Carmen Macumba number with a ton of options from Comme il Faut ($13) black candle hunt. The skin I'm wearing is from the ~TeaLane~ ghost from the Vain Inc. gridwide Ghost Hunt.

Pic7_Bas Freda BandT

More than a couple words about the Vain Inc. hunt: I've shown you a variety of outfits here (just picked willy knilly), but I must stress if you just hop around and pick up the items shown you'll miss out on a whole lot of awesomeness. There were items that I picked up that moved straight out of the Vain Inc. hunt folder in my freebie folder section and right into their proper homes in my clothing folder. So start with the #1 ghost at Vain Inc. and work your way all the way through from 1 until you hit 114 (107 is missing, but the #1 folder you pick up @ Vain Inc. will have both the landmark for the #2 place you must find and the #108 landmark)! This is one of the best hunts to have hit the grid and the cooridinators and designers are owed a big founooking hurrah! And if you're wondering I took all the pictures for the Vain Inc. hunt prizes in hell - Yes, hell. Go and visit Jigoku the Budhist Hell park!

Next picture is a mix up of things from a number of places:


Dress & Nails from the PHLow candy dish hunt, the shoes are from Chic Boutique one of the merchants at Crush Row (either $0 or $1), Hair from SoWhatDesigns ($0 or $1), Wings from Isabelle Esoterica Fashions, skin from DLicious Skins, hat from Elegance Hat & eyes from ::EbiShop::.

Hair from MiaSofia's lucky chair, Skin from **OC** ORAGE Creations, Shoes from Kakaue Shoes & Boots Creations cauldron hunt, dresses & jewelry shown from the Alyssa Bijoux & plaza pumpkin hunt (23 of the 25 are out).

Depression Era Designer Sale!!! Be the Best Dressed when You get Forced to Live on the Streets

Evolution of My Style

I can't quite remember what prompted me to think about my personal style. I think I was reading someone's blog. Anyway, I realized that I don't particularly have a style. I spent most of my life not thinking too deeply about what I wore, save for making sure that what I was wearing suited my body.

Like most kids, my mom bought my clothes without my input for quite a few years. Thankfully, she didn't dress me like a lunatic or anything, so I happily went along not really knowing or caring about "fashion," per se. (I still don't get how little kids know about fashion... like that one really young blogger. Isn't she like, 10?)

The first fashion magazine I ever read was Vogue, which I just grabbed to read on a break when I was at the library. That was about the 5th or 6th grade, and I continued to read Vogue for about a year. Still, I didn't think too much about clothing.

I suppose that all changed when I got to high school and I started reading magazines like Seventeen and Teen People. Thankfully, I never got any style ideas from those magazines (though, I have to say that Seventeen is getting better at branching out and being less preppy all the time), but I did find certain items that I wanted to, and eventually did, buy.

Finally, I studied abroad in London in my junior year of college, and that's what I would consider the turning point in my style. With plenty of free time, I could actually plan an outfit, try it on, see what it looked like, etc. Not to mention going to school with a bunch of arty folk, I saw a lot of "interesting" outfits. And by "interesting," I mean some batshit-crazy outfits and some really cool ones. Mostly strange ones, though. There, I stood out because I was dressed relatively "normally." Oh, but the best part about going to school there was that my classes were literally a 1 minute walk away, so I could wear heels. Score!

So what I do know for sure is this: I don't like to dress very femininely, and I have a definite skater-look influence. For instance, I love skater sneakers (Nike SBs, Vans, Supras, etc.), wearing my jeans rolled up to the ankle (which I promise doesn't look strange) , funky hoodies, etc. But I avoid wearing this stuff all together, so I don't look like a caricature. I also have this obsession with suede -- at one time, I had about 10 pairs of suede shoes, 2 suede jackets, suede gloves -- you get the picture. All in all, I think my clothes are mostly basics (either for layering, or with something strange about them so that they're not boring) and boyish/grunge (clunky sneakers and boots, plaid shirts).

In general though, I can't say there's something universal about how I dress from day to day. I started keeping a big "inspiration" picture folder on my computer to see what I like and figure out the similarities. So far, it's going pretty well, and I can definitely see that I like 1. dark colors 2. scarves (already knew that though) 3. miniskirts and opaque tights... Despite that though, I still feel like it's not quite me. So I'll keep looking and I'll keep clicking, and one day, I'll finally figure it out.

Shiny Things - Tuli Pumps

The newest pumps from Shiny Things are excellent and adorable! I'm all bundled up and ready for the frost on the pumpkin. Yeah, I know my feet might get a tad cold...but I'm willing to sacrifice for fashion, and so should you! Visit Shiny Things On Line and In World.
Other Stuff: Hair by Kyoot Army, Skin by Redgrave, Outfit by Skin Flicks, and scarf by Artilleri.

What you need to Party this Halloween!!!

Rock out all night in purple in black with Angelique's Sugar Mafia bangle with a vintage bow!!! I'm also a big huge fan of her heavy mettle charm necklaces!!! Be sure to pair it with something Angel Lust for that extra overbearingly feminine look!!!

If you love it as much as I do you'll buy one at Stars and Infinite Darkness!!!

StyleCard: BAX Boots

Ahhh! Nothing like a release from BAX Boots to get me to lace up and get back to blogging, needed a bit of a break after that all out marathon of shoes while Graci was away. But she is back, and I have had my little break... and here come the boots! Bax Coen really doesn't fail with her sleek sculpted lace-up ankle boots, her latest are the Brown Suede Ankle Boots. They offer an amazing 4 boot suedes to choose from and multiple cuddly toppers in wool, fur and animal prints. Metals are easily changed between Gold and Silver, and there is even a lace version of the topper and a customization menu that allows for more personal choices for the various parts.

These remind me of the completely impractical winter boots I always wanted in high school... walking in 3 feet of slush in a stiletto heel isn't really wise, but for SL and it's oh so mild winter ahead, I can't think of a more perfect choice to go with all those practical and sexy sweaters, dresses and denims. I threw on my favorite tights from Persona and the amazing belted dress from AOHARU (comes with a stand alone belt option making it a great accessory investment too!). A bit cute, a bunch sexy, a great value with so many options!

Visit BAX Boots soon!
The Stuff; Redgrave Skin, Mirai Hair, AOHURA Dress & Belt, Persona Tights.

Inspiration from a Room

Lately, I redecorated my room to make it more warm and cozy. I painted the walls a terra cotta color and put in a purple bedspread and curtains along with my dark wood furniture. While my current decorating style at the time is a bit Southwestern, my dressing style is anything but.

So what would my room look like if it were an outfit? It'd have warm colors mixed with dark ones, sheer fabrics, wooden jewelry, and it'd definitely be nature inspired.

Maybe a little something like this...

If you want to be scandalized, go ahead and look at the prices. *cue pity moment* I can only afford one thing on that list right now. Oh, poverty. :(

In Memoriam

According to the Style File on, the Danish company backing Camilla Staerk has said that they will "cease all activities concerning the brand," which really sucks because I quite like Staerk. There was something very quirky about the clothing, but maybe that's what didn't translate to buyers?

Staerk is gone :( by silentspring

You shall be sorely missed, indeed.

ETD: Kristin Boots

Ohhh these Kristin Boots are the prim version of yummy deliciousness. Yes, a new shoe release at ETD brings us the Kristin Boots. Available in a good number of colors and just in time for fall. Visit ETD InWorld.

Other Items: Hair by Truth, Skin by Redgrave, Top by Skin flicks, Undershirt by Dutch Touch, Pants by Launa Fauna.
One summer, my mom, my best friend and I went on a trip to Caribbean island. And, as everyone knows, one of the best things about traveling is duty-free shopping. My mom told me that I could pick out whatever perfume I wanted and she would pay for it.

I came back with this:

Apparently, it has notes of "citrus honey, amber, and magnolia," which sounds about right to me. It's pretty flowery, and you can definitely smell the citrus. I think it also has a hint of a baby powder smell to it, but that may be from one of the flowers that's in it. Anyway, back to the story.

My mom looks at the bottle, laughs and says, "I used to wear this when I was your age." Peas in a pod.

The style from HCT is Lavonne. You'll also find a wealth of styles available in both the male and female hair stores for $1 on up. (Truth - & HCT -
