Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
2013 already. It seems like 2012 went by so quick. It was definitely full of some great high points (like 26,000 views) and some really low points. BUT it’s a new year, so time for a fresh start. Or a continuance of the same ol’ same ol’. One thing that will be the same is my love of hats. Much to my delight, Wasabi Pills has the new Lumi style out at
fame shed faMESHed. There were some people on plurk commenting about the lack of bangs and/or the dislike of the wispy hair things but in my opinion, this looks great and bangs with a toque are sometimes hard to pull off in SL. They tend to look very chunky, awkward, and out of place. There’s a HUD included which gives you the option to change the toque colour, button colour, and the colour of the thread that holds the button on.
insanya had this awesome mesh coat that was available for 85L at FROST (which closes today, Jan. 2). It
is was available in 6 different colours of plaid and I hope it will be available in the mainstore because this is a must have for the winter season in SL.
I’ve been a TOTAL bum today, like it’s past noon and I’m still in my pajamas (at the time of writing this post…not now at 3:30pm…just fyi). So I figured my SL look today should reflect my RL look and I headed over to JPdsg to pick up the new mesh sweat pants. Usually I try demo’s of…anything I can before buying, especially mesh pants but I figured I’d take a chance and blind purchase. JPdsg doesn’t do standard sizing so these only come in small, medium or large. Luckily, the small fit perfectly. The stripes down the side are colour changeable, as well as the waist laces (which can be changed from tied or untied). Pair it with the new Flynn top from coldLogic and you have the perfect lounge wear.
On a super quick note, have you been to Culture Shock yet? I happened to get there long enough to pick up one of the only things that I really wanted, Exile’s Groove Theory mesh hair. It’s so…chic..soo…culture…Yeah I dunno. I just love it and it reminds me of Lady Sovereign.

Have you noticed the lack of belts now that everyone is trending the mesh jeans from Maitreya or Mon Tissu or wherever? Well, I still love my belts and I especially love the new Squaring of the Circle from Scrub. The detail is just great and the metal ring in the back gives it some chicness. Definitely check out Scrub when you get the chance.

Exile released three new rigged mesh hairs, one of those being Satisfaction. Which, unlike the song that comes to mind, I definitely got satisfaction out of this hair! So much so that I bought the light blondes and dark browns! I love the 60s-ish vibe to it (whether that was the intent or not). Totally worth going to check out, but remember to TRY THE DEMO! Seriously guys, I can’t stress enough, if there is a demo available, ALWAYS try it because while it may look awesome in the vendor ad, it might look stupid on you.

One of the newest released from insanya is these sweet Dunkers. Talk about a great looking street shoe right? They are available in 14 colours and certain parts (Side Stripes, Stripe Big, Laces, Label, Rings and Back Stripes) are colour changeable with 16 default colors available. The Monster design is 20% off for VIP group members (bringing the price to 288L from 360L)
I also picked up this amazing Repetitor Necklace La traviata Silver….ok to be hoenst, I have no idea what it’s called, I just copied that from the item folder but it’s from U&R Dogs and is available for 100L at Fashionable Late (which I heard will be closing in April)
