I’m a sucker for soft hair styles, and when I saw this hair from No Match, I had to have it.

I got at the Boho Culture Fair (which ended on November 2, sorry).

When I saw this dress at Tres Chic, I fell in love with it.

It’s classic, vintage, and the epitome of elegance and romance.

Tres Chic ended yesterday (sorry again), but you can try the mainstore or MP to see if you can find it.

I love it, and I know it will be a staple in my wardrobe.

In my recent shopping forays, I made a visit to the Gacha Garden event.

I know, I know, I’ve sworn off of gachas.

I still play them occasionally, but only if it’s items like shoes or hair, and I like all the colors.

(Because I can never have enough shoes!)

However, while I was there, I stumbled across the harp gacha from Muse.

I’d been looking for a harp, and this seemed like serendipity.

One pull, and I got the white.

Score!

White goes with everything. 😀

So I slipped into my gorgeous dress, fixed my adorable hair, and hopped on the harp, which comes with 6 built-in poses.

Two of them are playing the harp, but I loved the dramatic flair of this one.

I also had fun playing around with this photo in Photoshop.

I love adding textures and I’ve recently discovered the ‘blend if’ technique, so I’ve been experimenting with it as well.

A vignette layer was added at the end – I love how it gives the edges of the photo a dark blue tinge.

Baxter growled low in his throat and she stood up quickly.

“Who’s there?” she asked.

Her sightless eyes looked right through him.

I’m trying something new with this post – embedding my picture from Flickr, rather than uploading it directly to the blog.

I think I figured out how to remove the annoying script add from Flickr that plasters their logo all over the photo, but we’ll see.

So far, I can see that it does save uploading time (which was like 20 secs, maybe).

I’m not sure whether it’s really saving me any extra work beyond that.

I still have to add all the tags and groups in Flickr, and then add all my tags and categories on the blog.

However, I did upload the picture to Flickr at a much larger size than I usually use, so if you want to see the photo in all it’s large glory, just click on it, and it will magically transport you to my Flickr page. ;-P

This look was fun to put together.

I’ve been wanting to blog these amazing shoes from Essenz (currently found at The Gacha Garden) for a while now.

Today I was over at Entice (a new-to-me store) and looking at some shoes for Secret Wednesday, when I found this amazingly cute dress.

As soon as I saw it, I knew it would match my shoes perfectly.

The hair is one of the latest releases from Truth (my all-time favorite hair store) – I love the fun, flirty braid.

This adorable seat and puppy are courtesy of Bee Designs from their gacha machine at The Cosmopolitan Room.

I try not to play too many gachas – but in this case, every seat was adorable, so no matter which one I got, I’d be happy.

Bonus that it has a cute little puppy, because I love dogs. 🙂

The current round of Cosmopolitan ends on August 16, so you only have a few more days to snag one of these adorable seats for yourself.

Maybe you’ll get lucky and get an adorable puppy of your own!
