Why We Love Fall (And You Should, Too!)

Fall Shopping Day

Fall isn’t just about pumpkin lattes and Halloween. Some stores do have Christmas stuff out already. All joking aside, this turning of the season also means that it is time to shop for new clothes! Shopping is a favorite pastime for most people that I know. And the beginning of the month means new product and sales are awaiting us!

Neve is participating in the MIX event with two new mesh dresses. The one I have on today is Acute and comes in four different textures (plaid/floral/lively/neutral). Each texture pack that you buy comes with a four color hud. These colors are great for the fall season. The color of the belt can also be changed, or you can remove it from the dress. Neve mesh clothes are made to fit Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Slink Physique, and the classic avatar.

My gorgeous flowing locks are by Mina. She is one of the great sought after hair dressers in Second Life. This hairstyle is called Laila and is 50% off for the MIX event this month. Working our way down to the dazzling necklace I am wearing is ANE Angel Heart Necklace in diamond/silver. The bags are both from ROWNE and Zenith gachas. I love purses and these are really outstanding. I want to take the time to say that ROWNE has outstanding customer service. I rezzed this bag for decor and it poofed. Gone. So I contacted their customer service agent, Justice Topaz, and she sent me a new replacement! Apparently ROWNE bags cannot be rezzed, so do not try it.

And finally down to the feet we have Ingenue Astrid and Ninette Heels. The Ninette Heels were just on sale for FLF. Hope you were able to grab them. Betty Doyle is an outstanding footwear designer. I wish she would try and make clothes again. My powder blue classic stiletto heels are Sutra II from AlaskaMetro and matches perfectly with the outfit.

Does Dog Watching Make You Feel Uncomfortable?

Lode

The Arcade has arrived in Second Life. I’ve stocked up on too much stuff as usual. After trying to sort my gacha goods I decided to go for a walk in the village. Since the weather has gotten cooler it should be nice out. There I spotted some pumpkins for sale in a little wooden cart. When I went to go pick one out I couldn’t shake the feeling that I was being watched. It must be my sexy new dress.

Dog Watching

I am wearing my new mesh Neve Cynical Dress in the lively color set. The hud allows you to change the color of the top, skirt, and waistband (which is in the back). The back of the top is mostly open and very sexy. You’ll find several color packs at the Neve store. These are made for the default avatar, Slink Physique, Bellezza Isis, and Maitreya Lara bodies.

Today is Friday!! And for most of us in the U.S.A. it is a long 3 day weekend. Monday is labor day and that means it is time to relax. And to kick off the fun, Friday brings us Fifty Linden Friday sales! From this event I’m using Kirin Aki poses and Ingenue Esmee sandals. This footwear is made for Slink and Maitreya, and you get both the blue ikat and peach ikat.

At The Arcade I picked up the new Pink Fuel Morgana skin. I love the soft look of Pink Fuel skins. The apricot appliers are available in the main store at just L$1 for Slink hands and feet. I also got this pretty headpiece and matching ring made by Lode. My long hairstyle is Sugar from Exile in the Natural Fusion colors. The pack also comes with a short hairdo called Spice.

So I made the Most Wanted list

I was really just minding my own business. Logging in and shopping for nice things to wear or to decorate my place with. It is what I do now a days. Then it happened just like that. I was at The Arcade and ended up with Intrigue Co. putting me on the Most Wanted: Oldbie list.

The Arcade has always been one of my favorite events in Second Life. Some people like to complain about gacha events, but where else can you get a nice couch or gorgeous hair for L$50? I picked up this fun sexy beach hair from Olive, several Pink Fuel Skins (yay!!), a most fitting Most Wanted sign from Intrigue. These signs are so much fun, and my rez date is 2003 making me guilty as charged. I purchased a lot of great things that I will look fabulous in or add style to my house. The summer theme that most have seemed to go with is perfect for getting us Second Lifers into beach season!

Beach Hut

Now that I have been placed on the most wanted list I’ve got to hide out at my place on the beach. In the background you can see my hideaway friend, MishMish Pygmy Hippo, is catching some rays. The dust bunny umbrella is working hard at keeping the sun off of our delicate skin. This is our new Windsong Beach hut that is at Summerfest. It is the perfect one room hut for the beach shore. As you can see, I stopped by Collabor88 before hopping off to the beach. Another favorite event of mine where I found a cute romper from Tres Blah, and Ingenue had the most perfect shoes to match. Elikapeka Tiramisu has been a long time hair designer that I’ve admired. I was happy to see her items at C88 this month.

Beach Hideout

The marukin poses are also at C88. These poses are made for showing off jewelry and/or lips. Seven poses are included in the pack for just L$88. Most of them just have slight differences. They are perfect for using them in ads or blogs to show off jewelry better in pictures. The necklace was from a Fifty Linden Friday (FLF) event. That Friday has since passed but the necklace is still for sale in the mainstore.

Carnaby Street

Carnaby Street (click for larger view on flickr)

By now you have seen the wonderfully created buildings from Apple Fall. The Carnaby Row Store, Chelsea Townhouse, and Portobello Corner Store all fit very well together. You will find that the Carnaby Row Store has texture change exteriors. The townhouse has 2 rooms on each of the three floors. I have decorated this one with mostly furnishings from Apple Fall, Trompe Loeil, and What Next. It has a few touches from Tres Blah, Mudhoney, 8f8, and dust bunny. Normally I list all credits, however with so many items displayed, I will only be listing credits for the newest releases. You are free to drop by and see the layout for yourself.

Ready for Spring

Ready for Spring

I am so ready for Spring to come back. The soft colors of this season make me happy. Like the colors on this girly shabby chic bed from windsong. You can get this from The House Hunt starting February 1st. It went well with my new texture change shades from Mudhoney, and blue ruffle pouf from PILOT. On the desk are some cute kawaii items from windsong that will be at The Woodlands. Also on the desk is Atelier Kreslo: hyasynth’s Candy – Cookie Bird from the Atelier Kreslo Farewell Bake Sale. So many cute things to pick up at the bake sale.
