Waiting Game – LOTD #258

LOTD 258

She stretched out her long legs, her world-weary eyes watching the crowd as they passed.

It had been a slow night.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I think I’ve finally unpacked all the goodies I picked up at the current round of Shiny Shabby.  So many great gifts from designers!

When I saw this lingerie set from AMD, I knew I wanted to use the Exposeur “Red Light Showcase” prop I picked up at the sale.

The lingerie set comes with appliers, so a couple of clicks and I was all set.  Then I found these fantastic heels from Azoury.

Pumec had a gift set out, so I grabbed it, though I’ve never tried any of their skins.  Wow – such a generous and gorgeous gift!  A system skin and appliers for everything, including my Maitreya body and my Lelutka heads.  I’m in heaven. 😀

Definitely going to head over to Pumec and check out what I’ve been missing!

Decisions, Decisions – LOTD #257

LOTD 257

She always had such a hard time making up her mind. “What should we have for breakfast, Bruiser? Hmmm?”

The puppy whined in response and she nodded her head.  “Bagels it is!”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This LOTD is brought to you courtesy of the generous designers of Shiny Shabby (mostly). 😀

I went to Shiny Shabby to try my hand at the Glam Affair applier gacha.  I know, I know, I am supposed to be on a gacha moratorium.  But the applier was so gorgeous!

It’s an anniversary round for Shiny Shabby, so most of the designers have put out free gifts.

They include this cute hairstyle from DeLa, a new-to-me hair store, but one that I will be visiting soon. 😛

This fantastic rose skirt is from Agapee and when I opened the box from Friday, I was in love.  I don’t usually wear socks or flats, but these were just too gosh-darn adorable! Plus, they matched the skirt perfectly.

A quick search in my inventory and I found this cute top from Purple Moon, one of the gifts in their recent Cherries on Top hunt.

A much more casual look than I usually sport, but I’m diggin’ it. 😀

Winter Lights – LOTD #256

LOTD 256

She paced back and forth slowly, wincing slightly as the new heels pinched her feet.

It was getting colder, and this coat wasn’t as warm as it looked.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I think I have a shopping addiction. 🙂

I have so many items that I pick up here and there and then promptly forget all about them.

It is fun to sit down for an unboxing session and discover gems I don’t remember purchasing. 😛

Like this fabulous dress/coat from Ana Markova.  No idea what event I bought it at, but it’s gorgeous!

Shiny Shabby is currently an anniversary round, so there are tons of free gifts you can snag.

I grabbed this fabulous necklace set from Meva and this terrific hairstyle from Elikatira.

I keep an eye out for the FLF sales, and when Glamistry was on the list, I ran right over.  I love their shoes, and they were offering the fatpack for only $50L!

LOTD #173 – Lilacs and Talcum

LOTD 173

She looked around, the sense of nostalgia almost overwhelming.

She’d spent many a happy hour here as a child.

Running her fingers lightly across the sideboard, she picked up the blanket.

It still smelled of lilacs and talcum, like her grandmother.

I’ve decided I need to go yard-sale shopping more often. 😀

I saw a notice on Plurk that someone was having a yard sale, and I couldn’t resist going to pick up a few things.

Reasonably priced, and I justified the ‘no-copy’ items because, though I can’t use them in a performance, I can most certainly use them in a photo!

So many cute vintage things, and this isn’t even all of them!

I like to visit sims for photoshoots, but sometimes I can’t find anything that suits the feel/vibe I want.

In those situations, I build my own scene.

As I was browsing the yard sale, I could see the scene coming together in my head.

And I’m happy to say that it turned out pretty close to what I wanted. 😛

The little writing shed from Funky Junk is a $50L Friday find from a previous week- and a steal!

It’s such a cute little shed, I know I’ll get tons of use out of it.

I had a lot of fun decorating up the inside with various pieces and parts.

When I saw this dress at Shiny Shabby, I just had to have it.

I saw it on early access day, but it wasn’t available for purchase yet.

So I went back and braved the lag – I love the lacy vintage look of it.

The Exile hair is their offering at this round of Collabor88.

I love the length and the sideswept bangs – so pretty!

The ring is another gem from Maxi Gossamer’s Look Book for Mix this month.

There’s so much stuff in there, I’m still opening boxes. 😀

And I’m still in love with Essenz shoes.

I’ve had these for a while, but they are gorgeous.

I still have some boxes to open, because I went to the 50% off anniversary sale.

It runs through July 26th, so if you haven’t stopped by Essenz yet, you should.

Shoe heaven awaits!

LOTD #120 – Reluctant Dancer

LOTD 120He snapped the photo just as she turned, catching her mid dance.

She was annoyed, as usual.

She couldn’t understand why he wanted photos of her dancing.

He couldn’t understand why she didn’t.

LOTD #119 – Neon Blues

LOTD 119She sat quietly on the cold stairs, listening to the low hum of the neon lights behind her.

She’d been waiting over an hour for him to arrive.

Just as she was about to leave, his car pulled up.

She stood up, smiling – until she saw who was getting out of the car.
