She stopped suddenly, as if remembering something, her hand flying to her lips.

“What is it?” he asked.

It took her a moment to answer.

I think I’ve reached a point where I am ‘evented’ out.

Every time I turn around, there’s another event.

How on earth dedicated fashion bloggers keep up with all of them, I have no idea.

They skip sleeping, maybe?

I used to wonder how designers/creators kept up too.

Since I’ve started going to more events, however, I’ve noticed a lot of repeats – the same item at different events.

I’ve gotten into a vicious cycle of shopping, blogging, shopping, blogging – I’ve forgotten to have fun while I’m doing it.

So I made the conscious choice to slow down.

I bought enough items over the past couple of weeks to keep me busy with photos for the next couple of months.

I’ve also made the conscious decision to curb my impulse spending.

I limit the events I go to, I set a budget for the event, and I only buy items I really love.

I’ve come to rely heavily on Seraphim and their ‘galleries’ of items at events.

I don’t have to fight lag to look at the items, and sometimes, there just isn’t anything I have to have at the event.

So I don’t even go, thus saving time, L$, and my sanity. 😀

For instance, I went to FaMESHed and bought only two items – one of which is this gorgeous dress from Coquet.

I love the color, the off-shoulder cut, the lace at the hem – so many lovely details.

When I saw these amazing shoes from Chic Chica at the Cosmopolitan Room, I knew they would be perfect for this dress.

You can see all the jaw-dropping detail in the inset photo.

I love how they are sexy and delicate and feminine – a trifecta for heels. 😛

I wanted to add a little ‘something’ to my look, and the eyeshadow from PMD at the Makeup Room was the perfect touch.

There are 6 different colors, in both system tattoos and appliers for your Lelutka head.

I don’t usually shop at Argrace, but I’ve found myself wearing their hair for the last several days.

First I fell in love with their ‘wet hair’ look, and when I saw this adorable pixie cut on another blog, I ran right over there and picked it up.

I love the waviness and the cute little hair clip in the front.

Now, excuse me while I go dig around in the pile of chaos I call my inventory and see what other gems I’ve picked up to show off!
