Though it's slow going, I'm having a ball decorating my new spring house.  Today I'm showing you part of the sleeping loft: a little parlor area I created using items from fri.home and floorplan. Once the entire house is done I'll do a proper "grand tour" post, but meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this little teaser!

I'm hardly the first to post about it, but the new Dakota Mesh Head from Sugar Garden is just too cute for words. It's got an anime-cartoonish style to it, which originally made me think it would only work with cutesey outfits; however, I've seen a lot of people pair it up with naughtier looks, and even this outfit I'm wearing here is actually borderline sophisticated. In other words, Dakota is more versatile than you might originally think!  It's also very easy to fit onto your shape so long as you follow the instructions on the notecard. I didn't have any problems getting it to fit me at all, though it might help that my normal base avatar shape is rather petite.

I'm also in love with this skirt from C'est La Vie, which was recently available for a steal (65L!) at Stuff in Stock. I really appreciate designers who create their own original meshes, and it seems to me that Larcoco deserves accolades for her fresh and original designs; I love the fit, flare, and shape of this piece!

Happy Saturday, friends.  I'm off to try to make my way into the Arcade next!
