Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
Collabor88 is set to get you ready for winter. There are ton of winter themed items available during the December round including Auxiliary‘s Cozy Knit sweater, which comes in a variety of colours and your choice of plain or with this cute reindeer pattern. u.f.o. has two items out, a beautiful dress and this adorable lamb’s woolly knob hat that I got in beige but also comes in black, grey, and blue. Paired together, this look made me feel all vintage-y and cozy. Also kinda cute, don’tcha think?
To be honest, I have no idea what to write. Pretty great right? Emery has some new mesh NYC tops. Available in a variety of colours, this is a great “lazy days” top. In other news, Elikatira has the new Interrupt mesh hair out for 70% off the original price. The special deal is because this was originally to be released during the Annual Sale but due to technical difficulties, it wasn’t. So make up for that, it’s now released and on sale!
I did something I thought I would never do. I bought something because it’s the trending thing right now. Ombre hair colouring, which has been trending for about 6 years now, is apparently still going strong…or just hitting the SL market now. I’m not a big fan of ombre BUT Exile is one of my favourite hair brands and since a few of the new demos are offered in the “Natural Fusion” colouring, I decided to pick up my last two Exile purchases in this style. I have to admit, some of them aren’t too bad but there’s 3 or 4 that I don’t like.
I’m also back on the coldLogic trend…if you’d classify it as that. Many coldLogic products are hit&miss for me, generally not my style. I ended up at the store today and bought a couple of the new ‘fall’ sweaters. Again, not really my style but I’m going to try some new looks this fall (maybe). The Cook & Shereda tops really are perfect for the fall and have a preppy, business casual look to them which makes it a versatile shirt to have.
Since we are/were on the topic of hair, I HAVE to mention Truth’s new group gift Sam. It’s a non-rigged mesh, short style that (I hate to say) kind of reminds me of Rhianna. Despite that, I love this hair something fierce. Like all group gifts, group members get the fatpack which means EVERY colour pack available for you, for freeeeeee.
Gatchas were invented for rich people. Honest! It was made for people who can frivolously throw away their $L until they get what they want. Kinda why I hate gatchas. I’m not part of the 1% (oooo topical! scandal!) so I can’t really just keep paying and paying until I get what I want. But, I went to the Seasons Gatcha Winter Event anyway. I didn’t waste tons of money, I pretty much got what I wanted on the first time (or I liked it so much I didn’t care what colour it was) except for DECO. I REALLY wanted the DECO Winter Boots but…I ran out of allotted Gatcha money. After seeing it like all over flickr, I knew I had to get the Lucille Sweater Dress from AddiCt (one of those “I don’t care I just neeeeed it” ones). It’s super cute and obvious why it’s such a popular item. I also got a few poses from Olive Juice and this one from aDORKable Poses. (Two of my favourite pose stores so now you know where my money went). Whether you have money or not, it’s a really neat event and the sim is GORGEOUS. It runs until the 28th of this month so hurry up and git yo butt down there!

On a side note, I just want to say sorry! I mentioned at the beginning of winter that I was going to do winter posts and that hasn’t really happened. I’m sorry for all those that wanted to see them (probably none of you) but there isn’t much “winter” stuff I’ve desperately wanted or wanted to showoff.
