Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
I probably should have mentioned this over the weekend but Apple May Designs new mesh dress September was available for 75L. Now it’s regular price. Yeah….sorry about that. It’s available in three “muted” colours (taupe, pink, and sky) and comes with a cute matching, mesh collar.
LeLutka also has some recently released hair. Usually I don’t go for the big “lion mane” like hair but I couldn’t resist picking up Bouffant. Also included is a separate pearl tiara attachment that adds a little something something to the style. Bouffant is definitely an attention grabbing and versatile hairstyle.
I was able to get into the Arcade! I know right! It means most of the SLebrity bloggers are done getting everything they want and have vacated the premises…except to come back to take some photos maybe. Either way, it’s probably now a good time to try and get in and spend on your moneys on all the things. I highly recommend playing Truth‘s machine for this awesome Video Games hair. There are 15 “common” colours and 5 rares. Each comes with a detachable flower headband (either roses or orchids) so if you get more than one, you can mix & match!
Most “popular” stores are leaving system layers behind and turning to mesh. One store that is still rocking the layers is Gawk! So much so, that updated versions of products are being released, including the Tummy Shirt. The collar and sleeves are prim attachments and is now available in a ton of new colours aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand there are Tango appliers, sol separately, for every colour. Gawk has been ‘updating’ many products to include Tango appliers so definitely head over and see what’s available if you’re looking for sexy, not trashy, clothing to wear with your Tangos.
Truth also has three new hairs out, the full release of January (fades pack is the free group gift), an aptly named Winter that comes with a colour changing scarf, and this super cute Zuzka, which is a great loose, messy, loopy pigtail style.
Did you know that the December round of The Arcade is happening right now? I would say RUN AND GO NOW! but chances are you won’t be able to get in and if you do, you’ll lag out, crash then won’t be able to get back in. There are a boatload of yard sales being set up though for people to sell duplicates and whatnot so hit those up instead. Like I did! I was lucky enough to get almost everything I wanted without having to spend all my money on gachas (I even got some at below cost!)
One of the things I knew I had to get was this super adorable Critter Society Hats from Miamai (we know how much I love hats!) There are four common critters in four colours, and Unicorn rares and a Panda rare…and one SUPER RARE Rainbow Glitter Unicorn. Each “prize” comes with the hat by itself, a blonde, and a brown hair attachment. I also managed to scoop up Tableau Vivant‘s Ewing hair, which I’ll have to fight my way into The Arcade to get more of because it’s just awesome. I was lucky enough to come across one of tulip‘s baggy sweatshirts. These are mesh and sold separately, so when buying, you get only one size. There is a demo available which I recommend. I love how it looks from the front, but not so much from the back. So take time to demo items if that’s an option because you don’t want to waste $L on stuff you won’t even like!
You know what is one of the things I love about winter? It’s TOQUE SEASON! Ok, granted this post isn’t about a toque, it IS about a hat. I have no idea if this is a new release or not but when I was searching the MP for mesh hats, I came across Argrace’s Equestrian Cap. I’m so happy Argrace is getting into mesh (I love the Fedora they had out for Hair Fair 2012). Like previous hats, the Equestrian Cap is available in 3 different hair styles as well as just the cap itself. It was a long debate between the 3 styles but I decided on Fiona. The cap is texture changeable with 5 colour options which makes it great for anything. (And yes, I’m rocking the mesh head again!)
