Hey all <3 I’ve really been missing posting here more regularly, but RL is omnomnoming my time up. I have loved a lot of the new things coming out, with Shoe Fair and Drowsy Autumn Fest, etc. So much good stuff!!! I don’t think I’ll be able to post much in the next week, we’ll see, but it’s doubtful. So here’s a simple and cute Thanksgiving look to share. Happy Thanksgiving!! I’m very thankful for my lives, I’m very lucky, and I’m very thankful for you coming to read Better Imagined. <333 Much Love, Abra

the long cold nights.

November 17, 2009

Too many late nights, not enough sleep, too much whiskey, too many cigarettes, too much talking, too loud music, too high heels, and it’s sooo cold out. xo, Abra

One more for the road…thanks to the mister for the title, since I am ‘looking like a snow gnome’ in this look…bahahaha…a few things to note: I love these metallic Goonie bags!!!, Curio‘s new Winter skin is just lovely with it’s blushy cheeks and beestung lips…like April, revived in a snowstormParanoid is a cool t-shirt shop with some nice, cheeky shirts and free things in the back room, and I love BomBon‘s new socks…there is a free pair of pinky colored socks at the shop as well. Check it out and have a lovely weekend all! <3, Abra

keep me warm.

November 13, 2009



Brrr….wasn’t it just June? I’m having to wear thermals under my clothes irl, and in world I want to look warm to feel warm, you know? The good thing is that one can justify wearing many, many layers in both lives, to compensate for the lack of sun/warmth. Lots of goodies in the mix, starting with Maitreya‘s scarf hair, which is just *perfect*- each of the 3 styles are executed so well…how could they ever let us down?! Tuli‘s Bella is definetly a right-angle turn for the brand, and in the right diretion! What a pretty face this is, so natural, matte lips, interesting makeups. It’s a little more mature of a face, but in the best way possible, and I just love freckles and Tuli is spot on with hers. I love this face!!

Niniko is another store that, again and again, turns out cute, comfy, creative items that one can’t help but love. Sometimes I wonder if I’d ever become ‘tired’ of a store, but no! Not this one! This Cape Cardigan is fantastic for cold weather layering and has a little big of Red Ridinghood/Storybook cuteness going for it. Love this older LAQ babydoll cardigan, so girly and layerable (bless designers that make undershirt layers for outerwear!). LeLutka‘s new items are great as well, love the new skirts, the african print one and this ‘Paine’ mini. So much volume in this look, it asks for some tightness to tone down the puffs and this mini is just the perfect shape for finish.

Anuenue‘s Secret2 mufbon is so pretty, with the wrapping and flowers! If you were lucky enough to get it on the first try of the gatcha-gatcha machine, then bravo to you! I had to wait a bit to get mine!! Anyone need an extra yellow scarf?? hahaha. I came across Fluffy a while back on one of my random tp sprees and it’s since grown a lot. I love their polkadot socks and multi-colored nail polish. Housed in the same store is Null, which makes this rockin’ take on the Hermès Birkin bag. It’s called the Gainsbourg, after Jane Birkin’s husband and daughter, it’s texture change and excuted so well. There are also some sexy men’s shoes there, for all the guys out there. I’d like to see them in a look!

I am off for the weekend, as soon as I finish my 50L Friday’s shopping, that is! xo, Abra

whatchu want.

November 9, 2009



Hey everyone! Long time no see, I’m still around! Just been busy with my RL lately. I have some nice things in this look, starting with Tyranny Designs upcoming skin release. If you remember, I reviewed Sweet Augustine this summer and this upcoming skin release is a spring board from Augustine’s cute features. I have to say, I’m very impressed with how beautiful and adorable this face is! Tyr did a fantastic job and everything about this skin is love, love love! The face! The body! The makeups! Stay tuned for her new release!

KA-mi-LIAN was a new-to-me shop at this summer’s Skin and Shape Expo and I ended up liking the cute faces that were offered there. Kamilian Molko also makes adorable clothes and shoes and this Blair top is a good example of her workmanship and design! The clothes are all very versatile and flattering, as are her skins. Definitely a shop to check out.

Kalnins just released these Boudoir shoes the other day and, like everything in this line, they are impeccably made, come with tons of options (skin tone, colors, size, all HUD controlled) and are spot-on current. I love the leather texture on these open-top booties, so real you’ll want to touch your screen! They’re just posh enough to wear with girly clothes and have just enough punch to toughen up an outfit.

I’ll make a point to come back here soon y’all, until then, big smooches. xo, Abra
