~Rush Hour~

Rush Hour_010Pm2

I often stumble across the best things just from having a serendipitous conversation.  I am in the process of rolling out an Autumn Art Walk and had the wonderful opportunity to have a fabulous conversation, in the wee hours of the morning, with one of the artists.  We started talking about the blustery weather and keeping warm…which eventually lead to talking about fall fashions in SL.

M became very excited about an outfit she found on the Marketplace…from KIKI Designs.  The outfit was indeed fall fabulous and extremely well priced.  With my interest piqued, I flipped through the pages for this store and found another outfit that said “BUY ME!!”.  Now how can I resist that?

This Pied de Poule outfit in pink houndstooth comes with the smashing belted jacket, tights, bag and sky high platform pumps…all for 175L!!  The textures, draping and fit are spot on. I don’t usually like everything to be all matchy-match…but this just works without being overdone; especially when using minimal accent jewelry.

As soon as I put it on, my first thought was  to do a location shot in a city scape…so into search I went and entered “New York”…which took me to this amazing scaled replica of Central Park called “Midnight Manhattan Reverie” @ Virtual Reverie.  A definite MUST see and fantastic location for photo shoots!  I LOVE finding new places to explore and shoot photos!

Her Etchaflesh Corset is Boudoir Fly…

LpD, Etchaflesh, Boudoir2

There are still several more days till Halloween…that means many more opportunities to get your haunt on!  Earlier I told you about the [Etchaflesh/Virtual Props] Trick and Treats Hunt; where you can score fabulous mesh corsets and/or pose/prop sets…AND you can go back everyday to do the hunt over to score another prize…WIN! (no group join required).  Sooo I went back and filled up my HUD with candy to cash in on this fabulous mesh corset; which you can see a bit better in the second pic.  I paired the corset with this delicious little plum colored, ruffled skirt (5L) from – Quintessência Store – on the Marketplace…and these HOT _Dietrish Nouveau_BLACK knee high boots from *ATHOR* (0L group gift/free to join).

Last week Precious Restless sent out a notice in the Boudoir Group (free to join) that there was a new member gift waiting for all their ghouls to grab…well this Wearable Giant Fly came along just in time…since my broom was in the shop for repairs.  Isn’t he fantastic?  I think I’ll call him Igor. ;p;p

Now, a girl can’t just get all dolled up with no place to go…so I headed straight for Journey to the Lost City which is the hauntingly spectacular build from Tymus Tenk and Truck Meredith…owners of the sublime Calas Galadhon sims.  If you haven’t been to these park sims…they are an absolute MUST SEE.  I can’t begin to tell you how incredibly detailed they are landscaped…Truck and Ty spend endless hours landscaping and decorating them for every season.  There is so much to explore and enjoy…and now they have this wonderful Halloween adventure…search for the golden idol in the castle and you will be admitted to the Lost City…just beware of the perils on the way!  I took my trusty Staff of Hatred from Wylde Arts ~WA~ on the Marketplace (not free, but half price @ 150L)…to cast dark rain on any rogue corpses.

WooHoo!!  Now, my husband and I rarely fight…however, I must be getting on his nerves because he jumped a little to fast at the chance to beat the stuffin out of a pillow on me AND he didn’t mind all those extra times I said hit me again…hmmmm.  My pink plaid boyfriend shirt and too cute pink over the knee suspender socks are two of the 10L BCA items from [dirty.little.secret]…but wait…that’s not all…if you act NOW…the fabulous Bubblegum Twig Swing can also be yours for the amazing price of only 10L!!!

She tangos in NC Paris full of .:EMO-tions:….

Tango in Paris

A few months ago I joined the NC Paris Group (free to join) the group gifts are generous, from jewelry to dresses, and each item is well made.  I love that I can pick up a nice piece of jewelry to mix and match with my everyday as well as elegant looks…for FREE!!  Something about this simple black skeleton dress made me want to do more with it than make it another Halloween outfit…so I threw on the bronze skeleton cuff, matching earrings, fine bangles and clutch (ALL free at NC Paris)…called Kyle and asked him to meet me for a Tango (10L pose from [MotivAction] Poses & mesh clothing).
Tango in Paris

I topped the look off with the fabulously tousled *Anita* hair from .:EMO-tions:. (Free). The gorgeous Samhain necklace, with matching earrings (not worn) from ::CHOP ZUEY COUTURE:: is a group gift (350L join fee…but the creator is VERY generous with giving their members free gifts).  I scraped my pennies together to join this group but it is worth EVERY linden!!

Tango in Paris

In this close-up you will see the clutch…unfortunately, the pic doesn’t do it justice.  This clutch is free to the members of NC Paris Group (free to join) and matches perfectly with the skeleton dress, earrings and cuff.  It is studded with diamonds on the front and the clasp is a gorgeously detailed bronze skull with a crown and diamond set eyes.
