Look 79: A Thimblesworth of Milky Moon

Today I have a bunch of odds-and-ends to show you. A few last-minute Arcade prizes, some FLF items, a thing or two from The Dressing Room Fusion, and some new releases from the home furniture store Junk. Basically, I'm wrapping up all of this month's events and getting ready to blow even more lindens on the upcoming October events! Why is it that shopping in SL never gets old...?

Have you been to the store MishMish yet? I love these cute little clay pots they featured for FLF. They come with a hud so you can add a bow, mustache, pacifier, etc. Sort of like Mr. Potato-Head, if anyone remembers those toys. Floorplan also put out a great texture-change metal lamp for FLF - the half table is by them, too. Except for the TV (which is by the Loft and was an arcade prize), the rest of the furniture shown here is new from Junk. I love the chair, it's so unique! I chose the vegetable-themed floor cushions because they remind me of fall.

Well that's it for this weekend. Hope you have a great Saturday!

Look 77: Go on and Wonder

You've been to the new round of The Chapter Four by now, haven't you? If you haven't, get there pronto and grab one of my favorite gatchas...a set of fantastic furniture and decor by Ionic. Everything pictured above was included in just one play for $75L! A great deal, and a great way to get your hands on some adorable goodies.

What about The Seasons Story? At this event you'll find lots of Autumnish, whimsical-themed fashion and home decor. Everything I'm wearing (except for the skin) was picked up at the The Seasons Story, including this delicate lace skirt by Pesca and gathered silk blouse by Tram, which I paired with more boyish-looking boots by +ILO+. The hair is by Truth and comes with a hud to change both the hat and hair textures. I love all of it!

Look 76: Pocketfull of Quarters

I've picked up lots of fun stuff at the Arcade, so it's about time I showed it off! As usual, there's just wayyy too many cute and fun things to spend your Lindens on at the Arcade, but I refuse to have any regrets about it! The Chapter Four also has a new round up, full of cute clothes and home decor items. I'll be showing off all the home items I got in a future post.

If anyone used to shop at the great home store Tatty Soup (now closed), the creator, Tab Tantham, has a new shop called junk, where you can find some of the cute new releases featured above.

See you next soon!

Look 75: The Music of What Happens

A rowan like a lipsticked girl. 
Between the by-road and the main road 
Alder trees at a wet and dripping distance 
Stand off among the rushes. 

There are the mud-flowers of dialect 
And the immortelles of perfect pitch 
And that moment when the bird sings very close 
To the music of what happens 

Happy Saturday! Today I've put together something simple using some items from the Arcade and Fifty Linden Fridays. The photographs came out kinda poetic, somehow, and reminded me that one of our best poets, Seamus Heaney, died this week. The poem I quote above, "Song," is by him. Saturdays are good days for reading poetry, don't you think?

Look 74: Without so Much as a Shiver

If you still haven't made it over to the Arcade because you can't stand fighting the crowds, why not swing over to Collabor88 and grab up any last minute goodies you might have missed? There's only a few days left before the next round, and I don't know about you, but the birthday round was so great that every time I've gone back, I find something I meant to buy and didn't! 

In addition to my C88 goodies, I've purchased something I never thought I would purchase - mesh feet by Slink! One thing about me is that I hate, and I mean hate tinting feet. This is why I rarely purchase open-toed shoes in SL. When I discovered that some of my favorite skin creators are now making appliers for the Slink feet and hands, I became a lot more interested in getting a set of feet for my avatar. Then, when I saw these platforms by Milk Motion and how cute they were, I was sold! Now I can't wait to expand my collection of Slink-compatible footwear. Better go buy some more lindens...
