Look of the Day : An Afternoon in Shades of Grey

Just a quick post for a look I loved that I threw together a few days back when my significant other decided to whisk me off dancing one afternoon.

LOTD

One of my all time favorite mesh skirts is from The Secret Store, I love its great fit and shaping. I paired it with this shirt from Amarelo Manga. I’m new to Amarelo Manga and am loving their clothes so you’ll be seeing more here I’m sure, and this shirt is one of my faves I know I’ll be wearing often, both with skirts and jeans. Maxi Gossamer and Bamboo Nails never fail to complete my looks, and Elikatira hair often finds it’s way to my head, much as this recent one has.

Top of the World

Now, time for more shopping, so many sales on this weekend, and so much to catch up on yet for photos, purchases and gifts from Valentine’s weekend, I’ll be keeping busy for weeks I’m sure! *Waves a Farewell for now and goes off to sort thru the piles*

New Releases & Hunts: Love Me Tender

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and with all the pinks and reds everywhere, I felt inspired to do some festive photos. I started with a dress and leggings set from PurpleMoon, made for the Cupids Arrow hunt and a fun outfit for a casual day hanging out with my man. I’ll let you in on a little secret too, there is Cherry Hunt happening over there at PurpleMoon, don’t miss it, you’ll find lots of goodies.

LoveMeTender2

I added the new Maxi Gossamer Khaleesi set to it, which comes in a variety of color combinations, so you’ll be sure to find one that works for your outfit of the day too, get it now while its on sale at Collabor88. I just can’t keep up with all Maxi Gossamer’s releases lately, every one is a must have that finds its way to my inventory! I also grabbed my Go-To Nails from Bamboo, each set comes in 5 colors/patterns, I’ve several and love them all, I chose a silvery white for this look to brighten things up a bit.

LoveMeTender1

New for me here too, are the Doro shoes from Redgrave which come with a 12 colors all in one Hud (including two metal colors), that offers countless options for your outfit matching. I’m sure I’ll be wearing these lots with various outfits. They are a great value for the quality, I know I’ll be getting at least a couple more styles there soon.

Love Me Tender

Once I was dressed for the day, the man of my life swept me off to a beautiful sim for some dancing at a lovely waterfall he found. He is so sweet, knowing I love waterfalls, he has made it his mission to take me dancing at every waterfall on the grid! Now, time to go work on the next look and post! See you at a waterfall or shopping soon, and Happy Valentine’s Day!

New Releases : Dancing with Emma from Entre Mares

Entre Mares has released a stunning new gown, Emma, that will be sure to heat up your cold winter nights when you go out (or stay in) dancing.

EM Emma Full

If you have a special date night coming up and you want to turn the heat up and aren’t sure what to wear, head on over to Entre Mares, you’re sure to find something there that will be just perfect for your evening. The new Emma will certainly fit that order, it is available in blue as shown, as well as a black, purple and yellow. It is lacy and delicate, and yes, it does cover all the necessary parts that need covering. The bits and parts are all well made, and the flex is just right for twirling on the dance floor.

EM Emma Couple

For my night out with my special man, I chose a favorite updo from Truth, and a favorite pair of heels from N-Core. I also chose a favorite diamond set from Alyssa Bijoux, always a great classic to wear on any formal occasion. Add to that, my most fave nails, from Bamboo, in a silvery color to match my shoes and jewelry, and I am good to go be dazzling on the arms of my dazzling man.

Look of the Day – Ilaya, Bamboo Nails and Maxi Gossamer

We are well in to the New Year, and it’s high time I do some blogging.  A few things have me excited that I want to blog about, including this look, inspired by the recent weather…icey! Watch for post coming up devoted to this amazing skin by Sachi!!!, but for today however, I want to talk about other things.

Catty

Ilaya has made this very fun dress, with a bit of retro feel, in mesh, and I love it.  It comes in a few other shades too, and definitely worth grabbing for your closet. I like the monotone look, great to mix and match with various things.   Maxi Gossamer just keeps on creating more jewelry we all must have.  For this look, I chose the bangles which are available at the current round of Collabor88, and the earrings, are part of a set from the current FaMESHed, which ends soon so hurry on over and get them while you can. I also want to mention these prim nails, from Bamboo Nails. I simply love them!  They are the most easy-to-apply-and-adjust system I have come across yet. With the Hud, you can change both size and length, as well as colors , based on which set you have of course.  These nails are definitly worth a try whether you have been avoiding prim nails, or love them.

Catty

One can never have enough poses, and these used here are new from Ovation Poses.   I simply threw them in my main Tillie’s stand, and they are good to go.  Well, that’s it for this time, now back to more shopping and wandering and dancing!  Stay Warm!

The Loony Cat is 5!!!!

Some days I just can’t seem to figure what to blog, even with my long list of things I want to blog. Today it was easy as soon as I realized it is my 5th Rez Day, I decided to dig out some old pics and have a look back. I love looking back, reminiscing about the “good ol’ days, what a perfect excuse to do it and get a post done too! It’s also a good time to appreciate what we have in SL, and how far we’ve come, even thru all the heartache, crashes, prim hair up our butts, and changes thrown at us by LL whether we like them or not.

Catty 5 Days Old

I remember this day, I was just 5 days old, I’d found a couple shops that offered boxes of freebies and camp-for-item chairs (awesome belly ring that sticks thru shirt). I had a cool new shirt, a really sexy skin with a tatt even, and omg the hair! I loved the hair, and I hadn’t even found prim hair yet!! I spent my first year making friends around lucky chairs and classrooms, some who are still with me and I consider very dear real world friends, exploring and growing my addiction. Hey Girlfriend! was born that year too (yes groupies – you’re getting OLD too!!)

Catty Loon

About a year into SL, after having spent the first year in TWO make up options of ONE carefully chosen skin, my skin, hair, clothes etc addictions were well under way, thanks to Elika, Naughty Designs, Last Call and Another Fundraiser. My picture addiction was born about then too, as this was the very first time I just had to try to take a good pic to share on Flickr and I’m still learning how to make better pics and sharing along the way.

Catty @ 5

Today, I find myself still in love with SL, tho often finding I have to work hard to keep it working in all aspects *grumbles at Elika, Onyx and others that are trying so hard to convert her to the MESHside*. My Top 10 List of Fave Everythings grows and grows, as does my addiction to it all. I am sure there is much much more to be discovered out there, so I’ll keep looking, and no doubt bloggybuddy Jenica will keep whipping, the designers will keep designing, the groupies will keep groping and I’ll find more and more joys to be had in SL.

I wonder where we will all be in another 5 years!

Song Obsession of the Moment

Groping the Truth with Adam n Eve

Catty LOTW

My week began with good intentions, and as often happens, RL showed up at the door and much of what I’d SLplanned didn’t happen. However, before the knocking, I did manage to get some shopping done. Sachi Vixen at Adam N Eve lovingly and beautifully created a tribute to Etta James skin, making it so that if I didn’t have time to change much in SL this week, at least I was wearing something gorgeous.

Catty LOTW

I also had a chance to get to the Truth sale at Truth District, where our Evil Hairmaker has several of his recent styles at half price!!! I’ve grabbed a couple I didn’t have yet, but I must get back this evening before the sale ends for more as there are more on my NEED list. If you haven’t been there yet, just go now and “grab one of each” and you’ll be happy as we all know we can never have enough hair, and I’m pretty sure the sale ends very soon! Time for more shopping and snapping, see you at the sales!!!
