To Elate, or not To Elate!

The answer…simply is….to Elate!!
I always look forward to Friday in SL, a day a few new sale items appear at different places. Today did not disappoint. Elate delighted me with a new dress, and new earrings! Both which I had to grab up immediately and do a quick (by Catty standards, that means published by Monday) post.

Elate

Mesh clothing is gradually taking hold of me, and this new dress Kellie Iwish has out has been added to my list of must have mesh. It’s cute and fits so well, perfect for fall days. The alpha layer needs a tad of adjusting for my shape, but it does come with 3 options too for that so hopefully you’ll find one that works for your shape. I love the earrings too that Kellie also has out new, I am sure they will be very well worn in the future, I love a big hoop! I threw on a fave pair of boots from Maitreya, also mesh, along with my Go To skin of late, Cassiopea from Glam Affair, and I was set for some shopping and visiting, and even some dancing. That’s all for this quickie..and it’s even done and still Friday!!! Yay me! *waves* See you soon!

Getting Meshed Up with ColdLogic and the Girlfriends

I’m late! Better late then never is my motto…well, one of many. Awhile back, ColdLogic had a sale, and the Girlfriends went shopping!!!! I had planned to get this post done during the sale, so all could be encouraged to go over there and buy. But, I’m slow. Groupies Jeni and Anne Daumig and I headed on over to see what goodies we couldn’t live without.

Three Shopping

And after wearing these things for a few days, I’ve come to realize it doesn’t matter if it is a sale, or not, everyone needs ColdLogic!!! I’ve been a slow, resistant convert to Mesh clothing, ColdLogic has done some serious conversion on me with their styles. The styles are classy and wearable, I love the various separates most because I love being able to mix and match, get extra colors for different moods, and get so much more wear and enjoyment from it. I grabbed the Heche/Early top in various colors, and like the other shirt shown here, I know I’ll be back for more, I should have fatpacked!

ColdLogic  Pair

The detail put into the wrinkles and shaping, as well as shading is so realistic, I want these in RL. The Dailey trousers I can’t stop wearing, I believe they may have the nicest behind side of any pants yet on the grid. I’m hoping they do a lot more pant type things in the future! The Kipp top, shown here in white (and the Gertz top, their naming confuses me, as they seem to name color groups of the same item differently which gives my brain just too much to think about – I try to unconfuse myself by putting both names on both folders so I can pretend I know what I’m doing lol), are both also my new favorite shirts! I love how clean and well made they are, and the peek-a-boo back is so subtly seductive, its irresistible.

ColdLogic Catty

A note too, about this new hair from DeLa. I don’t know how I missed that they were making hair now, but I’m so glad they are! I love it, have more styles on my list to get yet, and can’t wait to see what more they make. Get on over there too, to check them out, after you visit ColdLogic and get your fall wardrobe off to a good start. Now that this post is finally together after two weeks of compiling, I’m ready to go check out the newest release from ColdLogic, just out yesterday, so watch here for more!!! And too, let me know if there are any new places I should check out, as well as other new, fun, old, interesting places, venues, shops, etc I should explore!!

Catty Does a Post!!!!

Just when you thought it was safe…..

Summer is over, tho it really doesn’t feel like that is possible. My MiniMe has gone back to school, and it’s time to start trying to get things done again at home, and in SL. The summers brought a lot of surprises, from almost losing my only brother, to a week spent at Sturgis during Rally (and another at Lake Superior) and even some new family horses, all of which reminded me just how important it is we make the best of each day we have, and to reach out for that which we love, and to not be so afraid to speak our feelings.

Hatpinned

Vintage Fair has begun while I wasn’t looking, and Reghan of Hatpins has created a pair of earrings I’ve not wanted to take off since she sent them to me. They are so well constructed, perfectly detailed and oh-so-touchable, as always with Hatpins, and go with a multitude of different looks and era styles. Vintage Fair ends soon so if you haven’t been over there, it is a must see, many things there a girl, or guy, with a fashion interest, must have.

Catified

When I initially decided I just had to blog these earrings since I love them so much, I didn’t know what to choose to wear with them as the possibilities are endless, and I just haven’t been out much this summer getting new things. So, I started out naked, when in doubt, skin always works!! But before the camera pulled away from me for a full shot, I’d found myself in a yummy, glittery evening out dress from Kyoot. I love a short little black dress, or red, or pretty much any other color…but I do need to step out of my own box a bit and find more dressy things, any suggestions where I should shop? It’s time for some new adventures and new passions in the worlds I love. See you soon! XOXO

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

Warming Up with Adam n Eve and Sleepy Eddy too

January where I live RL, we are usually knee deep in snow and frozen in frigid temps, but not this year, not til I ventured over to Happy Mood in Winter for some virtual snow. The very next day, our temps dropped and we woke to a blanket of snow. I was glad I had, for my virtual visit, a hot new skin and some great new group gifts to wear.

Cold Catty 3

Sachi Vixen over at Adam n Eve has been churning out some gorgeous and hot skins lately, and her latest hotness, Natalie, is my fave so far. Natalie is available in 4 delectable skin tones, all so well tinted and highlighted, I just love them all, but I’m wearing Natural here as I generally prefer lighter tones. They are available in 12 make up options, every one more luscious then the last. I’m wearing Bare here, as I was feeling a bit casual for my chilly outing. If you haven’t been to Adam n Eve lately, you need to get on over there, and I have heard rumor of even more hotness coming in the near future! Go Sachi Go!

Cold Catty 1

I love the newest group gift from Sleepy Eddy, the detail is just perfect, I love the brown and I want this in RL too. It’s a men’s sweater, but who doesn’t love a cozy man sweater on a chilly day? Insufferable Dastard also sent out a group gift, eyes in three lovely shades of brown, my favorite being the Medium Brown. Another group goody is from Kooky, she’s switching her subscriber system to a new one, and by signing up on the new, you’re thanked with a set of cozy boots, in his and her sizes, I chose the brown, tho they come in other colors too.

Cold Catty 2

Now you’ve got lots to do if you wanting your SL turned up a few degrees. Start with a new Natalie skins, grab some group love and have a great Friday the 13th!!!

Girlfriends Gone Shopping!! Starting 2012 on the Right Foot with Skins!!

Catty Got Harper'd

With the holidays over, it’s time to settle back into SL, get some blogging, shopping, sorting, socializing, etc done. I was delighted on Saturday to hear that Hey Girlfriend!’s very own talented Sachi had worked her artistic magic again, this time with a delicious new skin named after our lovely Harper. Jeni and I rushed right over to try it out. Sachi, being the sweetie she is, has a gift set out, so when you demo Harper, you’ll get some yummy make ups.

HG - Jeni Haz Skillz

As you may notice, our Jeni was so excited about it all that she just had to show us some of her many talents, with a little help from the goofy grid.

HG - Got Shoes?

Earlier in the day someone in the group mentioned shoes. I’ve been looking around for new shoes and boots lately so I tp’d along to SLink. I hate shoes, RL and SL, I’m so finicky when it comes to look, color, fit etc I just could pull out my prim hair. The grid was giving me grief, so I haven’t yet been able to try on demos, but I did grab a nice pile to try on when I can. I’m sure you’ll be seeing some SLink shoes here in the near future, I do love their quality.

HG-SLink2 - Catty and Jeni

It was so fun to see a few Girlfriends out, tho I wasn’t able to get pics of others that showed up, I did of course get Jeni and I, as well as AmazingGrace as she was slinking behind the shoe display.

HG-SLink3 - AmazingGrace

We really do need to get the group out having more fun…and hopefully, you’ll get to see some of us here in the blog as we adventure about. And maybe even I’ll have shoes on…if I find some new ones. Back to shopping and whatnot, see you again soon. Oh, and have a very delightful New Year!!!

Blink and Summers Over

Summer has gone so fast, I was caught by surprise when the weather guy announced the official end to summer. In an attempt to jump start my blogging, I thought I’d start with some favorite purchases, from the summer, that make great looks for autumn too. Seems like only a few days ago I purchased this yummy shirt from League, and I can’t seem to take off this Truth hair, purchased at a past Colabor88. With Autumn here so soon, that of course means there is more shopping to do, and that means more blogging! See you again soon!!
