Hi. I wasn’t going to post today, then the fantastic sim Drowsy opened and I had to post a little about it. I’ve been waiting in anticipation for it’s opening, and it’s even better than I expected. If you haven’t explored it yet, I’d do so soon as many beautiful sites and opening gifts await you. Check out the gift list below, if you want some direction.

I’d also like to mention my hair, a new favorite, funky style by Irollic. I hadn’t been to Irollic for a while, and was so happy to discover these fantastic braids. Each color comes with two style variations; in the other, the braid wraps around the front of the neck in a really cool way. Also, Gala Phoenix has released new makeups in the newest fact ‘June.’ I’ve really been loving this skin, and I’m so grateful for more makeup variations. Gala’s really on a roll as far as creative, beautiful, wearable colors and textures. I could have taken this dress to a sunny location, but I hadn’t been to House of Munster in a while and couldn’t resist the meat hooks. lol.

 

I made my way over to the Kalavinka Gallery in Rhizome, and picked up some of the most beautiful paintings. There’s also a free 2009 calender there and it’s beautiful enough to be a work of art in itself. I’m not sure how often this gallery changes, but last time I was there the paintings were different. Also, some $1L art from ArtMeter, at another part in Rhizome. It’s easier if you just take the slurl here. If you go to KIN-DZA-DZA, you can pick up more gifts, art and a cute little skybox. And at Epicurean, I found a pretty set of lingerie for $5L. I’m still sim hopping like nobody’s business and will report the findings soon. Love, Abra

lush luxe luff

 

A little post I threw together…I should title it, “What I wore today…” since this outfit wasn’t put together especially for the blog. I think there’s a certain fascination surrounding the ‘normal goings on’ of people. I always love when I get a peek into someone’s ‘normal daily life’ or their handbag. I suppose this is dipping my toe into that idea pool. I do wear my blogged outfits, so you know, just a lot is worn off the blog. Mostly it has to do with time, blogging takes a lot of time. Ask any blogger how much time the spend on a post, and the results will surprise you. Why do we do it? Out of our love for it, our readers, the pleasure of helping out. Some like the attention too, but I’ll tell you the truth, I can walk around safely without getting noticed for the most part. My motivation is love love love. xo

'ello

=(^_^)= Just a quick hi and a quick post. I have not forgotten about my lil cozy blog! RL has been busy and I’ve been settling into F*S. I gots more to come, lots is cookin’, but until then, here’s an outfit made of some of my favorite things as of now. 

I’ve seen this Fishy Strawberry mini-hoody around a lot, but that isn’t going to stop me from wearing mine. It’s so darn cute! My jeans are from Embellished and they are sexy/kyoot, flattering, nice pockets and dirt cheap! I love them so much I’m going back for more colors after I finish posting this.

I love my Kookie muggys! I like wearing heels because I’m short, but I think I’m a flats convert now. And I have to tell you about my earrings, they are from an amazing jewelry shop, *UnTone*. I seriously, seriously want to own everything in there and had soo much trouble deciding until I saw these earrings. Love at first sight, I scooped them up along with the matching necklace. A little bit ethnic, refined and gorgeous. The details & construction are perfect in my book. Check them out, but only if you can spend because you will!

The tube top is a today-only freebie @ Boom, see my Free*Style post for more details.

More updates to come soon! Luv ya. <3<3

Bohemian Dream

 

Say the word Bohemian and I get warm tingles up and down my spine. There’s something very magical about the lifestyle, and the fashion that is associated with it. Beautiful fabric prints, lots of flowers, old leather, and a multitude of boots. Sounds a lot like my style actually!

I’ve yet to find many SL stores that make Bohemian clothing, let alone do it well. There are many shops that sell fairy silks, wench outfits, and I’ve seen a few typical gypsy outfits in stores. Though some of these items are close to what I’ve been looking for, none of it is truly authentic. (Even the gypsy outfit, everyone knows real gypsies don’t dress like that!) Most of this clothing is made for the fantasy sims and/or Halloween/costume parties. So I get very excited when I see clothing I can pair with my jeans/boots/coats and wear out in everyday SL living.

 

The Graduation

 

The store I think of when I think Bohemian SL is Stitch by Stitch. The owner and artist behind the store, Sevenstar Amat, comes from true gypsy roots and her work is inspired by that of her childhood and the handmade crafts and sewing of her Grandmother. Her clothing is infused with feminine details, beauty and romanticism. I am completely smitten.

Imagine my delight when she kindly provided me with my favorites from her stores, so that I may present them to you. These clothes are so pretty and so fun. And as I always say, fashion should be fun! S by S’s clothing encompasses this idea perfectly.

 

Roses on her feet

 

These shoes are a freebie (!!) at Sevenstar’s Tengchong Juicy sim store. (Sorry for the mix up everyone ;)) I suggest you TP there asap and scoop them up, lest you miss them completely. They are gorgeous.

 

Romance for Autumn

 

I wouldn’t have considered myself a hat girl until I saw S by S’s Rose beret. It’s a beret covered in roses. (!!)

 

So I can knit at the drop of a pin

 

The dressmaker’s hat comes in two colors and it’s details are unbelievable! Knitting needles, bits of ribbons and a thimble poke out of the top and shimmy around when you move. :))

 

Where the seamstress keeps her pins

 

I saved my new love for last. It’s hard to choose favorites amongst this grouping, because all of it is so lovely. Though if I had to, I have to say there’s something about this print that makes me completely head over heels. I love the jewel tones, the simple, well-done craft work, the billowy skirt and especially this gorgeous folk style fabric. I would gladly wear this dress while lounging on a pillow swathed in the same fabric, while holding an umbrella made of the same fabric and reading a book covered in this print. I love it that much.

 

Folk Lore

 

Do stop by one of Stitch by Stitch’s locations and scoop up some Bohemian Gypsy Loveliness as soon as you can. Clothes like these put an instant smile on a girls face, and you can’t help but skip down the street while whistling to yourself.
