Today’s Gaze – Golden Goodies

I’m not always a huge fan of gold. But give me some pretties for free or cheap, and I’ll change my mind pretty darn quick!

Review - Today's Gaze - Golden Goodies

I’m simply in love with the new Delphines from much loved Shiny Things! If you’re a member of the subscriber group, head to the store and pick up your free gold Delphines. And check out the other new shoes, too! Oh Shiny Things, thank you for coming back to us.

I showed newness from Jane on Friday, but what I didn’t mention is that there are a bunch of free Intrinsic Tanks for the taking! I have a great love of basic tanks, as I’m sure lots of us do, so getting these for free is just amazing!

At fri.day, there’s a little corner with some discounted products, and I was able to score a 24.7 pack of the Short Cardis for less than $300L! You get 12 colors and there are options for shorter sleeves [like I’m wearing], long sleeves, and some different cuff options. Wonderful! Not discounted at fri.day, but still pretty inexpensive, I also picked up these Low.Rise jeans in the light wash.

You’ve probably heard of the 10-10-10 sale that’s going on, but if you haven’t, check out Callie Cline’s blogpost on it. I was able to get this adorable Padma updo by hair machine Truth for just $110L. Oh, did I mention it’s a FATPACK for that price? Oh yeah, you need it.

And one of my favorite finds at the Jewelry Fair, I got this I Love Autumn jewelry set from Primagine for less than $100L. Cute cute cute!

Okay, I know, I got long winded. Go shopping now!!

Today’s Gaze – Autumn Mix

Do you eat Autumn Mix around this time of year? It’s a bag of candy corn, but it’s got more in it – like big sugary pumpkins. Love it! Why am I bringing it up? Well, probably just because that’s the name of this post. And also because I really want some.

Today’s Gaze is a mix from my inventory. There’s some old, some new, and in my opinion, it’s just like those pumpkins – just sweet, yummy goodness. Some of it you can run out and purchase right now as it’s just been released, some might be just lurking in your inventory waiting to come out, and some you just might not be able to get anymore. I think we often get overrun with new pretties and we forget that there’s so much wonderful in our inventories just waiting for the chance to shine. I’m not going to explain all that I’m wearing today because I’m pretty lazy, but I urge you all to dig deep into your inventories and pull out some older pieces to wear. Just because it didn’t come out in the past week doesn’t make it any less beautiful. ♥

Today’s Gaze – Old, New, and Funky Junk, too!

Oh, I just adore autumn fashion! The best part is digging down deep into my inventory closet and finding those items I just loved last year and mixing them up with new things!

[All SLurls will be at the bottom, for those who don’t feel like reading!]

Review - Today's Gaze - Old, New & Funky Junk, too!

This simply precious Usakko knitted jacket from Bare Rose has been one of my favorites since I received it as a Christmas present. Beautiful quality, and naturally it is extremely affordable, at just $170L for 5 colors of the jacket, plus some little shorts and a shirt. You can’t see it, but there are 2 hood options, plain and with bunny ears! It’s also transferable, which is something I just adore about Bare Rose. If you want it and are very pressed for time [because let’s face it, we all know how huge the store is!], check out their website. You can pop in the name of whatever you’re looking for and it’ll give you a direct teleport link. Nice!

Of course, you do have to mix old and new together to make wonderful, so I’m wearing the Sabrina hair by Truth Hawks, which was just released today. This hair reminds me JUST of how my mom would do my hair when I was 6 years old! Squee!! The little “gumball” hairband is color change, but there is a “plain” version available, if you just don’t want to be TOO terribly cute.

Oh, what? You’re asking what I’m standing in front of? Well, that would be The Barn, soon to be released by Funky Junk. Check it out, it’s HUGE!

Review - Funky Junk - The Barn

It’s really cool! There is a ladder and a couple of stalls inside, too. You know, just in case you have horses or…something farmy. The Barn is great for your animals, but you could easily live in it yourself, it’s that cute! Funky Junk does not have an in world store yet, but if you’d like to see a demo, you can contact creator Ulaa Coronet. Or just ask me. I’m spoiled and have all the items. The Barn is not yet available for purchase, but should be either later today or Friday.

Today’s Gaze – Boom! Summer’s Over!

You knew her in high school. She was the one who spent her whole summer hanging out with the guys because she didn’t care if she dated them and they liked that, laughing so hard with her girl friends about stupid things that the whole group couldn’t breathe, and going to as many parties as she could. Her summer was better than yours and you knew it. But when September rolled around and everyone was back in class, she was the one who still brought a little bit of summer with her.

Review - Today's Gaze - Summer's Over?

BOOM just released these super cute [but super low cut!] Surf Polos. I love them, but wow. Talk about showing off the girls! I kept it a little more modest here by not wearing a cleavage enhancer because obviously I’m not wearing a bra with this shirt, and I don’t know about you, but my boobs don’t just naturally squash together. But if you do wear the cleavage skins, this shirt goes from being just cute to… BA-BAM! I’m wearing it in Doll Pink and there are 23 colors available.

Check the bottom of this post for the rest of the SLurls!

Today’s Gaze – Overly Cute

I’m not usually fond of the overly cute look on me. I love it on other people [like my friend Aisuru does it and does it amazingly well], but on me…no.

However, I was checking out the Fifty Linden Friday pics, and stumbled across this dress. I knew just the hair I wanted to wear with it, and voila! Instacute!

[All SLurls are at the bottom if you don’t want to read!]

Review - Today's Gaze - Overly Cutesy

The Confetti dress from Katat0nik is currently in Fifty Linden Friday, and look how adorable it is! Of course, that’s just what you’d expect from Katat0nik anyway, as the entire store is just filled with super cutesy dresses. I like the tiny little skully detail, and I may end up wearing it like a babydoll top later on.

The hair is from new-to-me store, Heart Softens. The store is filled with cute -and kinda big- hair. And oh so budget friendly! You can get a fatpack for less than the cost of one color in some other stores. I’m wearing Lott in ash brown, and I’m just crushing on the big fluffy side ponytail! It is no mod, which I don’t usually love, but there is a resizer script and at this price, it’s not a big deal to me. Is it the best quality you’ll ever see? No. But cute and cheap works for me!

My shoes are also cute and budget friendly from G Field. I came across these Kate mary jane heels at the Shoe Fair and fell so in love with them. I’m wearing them in cream, and the bow is color change. Love!!!

My skin is Isolde by Exodi in the Cachet tone, #13 makeup and my pose is by Exposeur. I’m also standing in the Daydreamer house by not yet opened Funky Junk. Trust me, when it opens up, you guys are going to WANT these prefabs. Too cute!

I’m off to run around in my cuteness!

Today’s Gaze – Today I’m A Lady

I don’t usually do posts on the 50L Friday items, just because…well, I’m pretty slow to post most of the time. 🙂 But I just had to do one today because I picked up some items that were just TOO GOOD to miss out on!! Especially if you love pretty, ladylike fashion as much as I do!

[All SLurls will be at the bottom if you don’t feel like reading!]

Review - Today's Gaze - Today I'm A Lady

From Surf Co. comes this adorable little dress called Somer. The skirt is a sculpted marvel. The folds just look sooo good!! I did have to work with the chest fold a bit to get it out of my chest, but unless you have super massive boobs, it shouldn’t be a problem. Today for FLF you can get Somer in Goldenrod [which I’m wearing] or Tomato for, of course, just 50L.

Also for FLF, Tiny Bird has an AMAZING deal!! Autumn has put out four color packs of her “Greatest Hits” hairs. There are 5 hairs to a pack and each pack is just 50L, so you’d be crazy not to pick it up! [Um, unless you’re a guy. It’s all female hair.] I’m wearing Love Love Love in sandy blonde. I actually had most of this hair already, but in different colors, so don’t think I wasn’t in there picking up more packs! Even the hair with the cans for rollers is included! Go!!

I’m also wearing the ladylike little Ribbon Slingbacks in cream by G Field, and the Glass Flower necklace by Paper Couture, both of which I think really pull the look together. My skin is the new Isolde by Exodi, which I’m wearing in makeup #12 in the Vivante skin tone. My pose is from the Playful Fairy set by Exposeur.

Today is the big FLF One Year party later tonight, and it’s also OMGWTF Barbeque’s birthday! IM Barb and give her birthday spanks!

Today’s Gaze – My Sister’s Style

My older sister has always had her own kind of style. Being beautiful [think a slightly older Alyssa Milano], she’s always been able to get away with things that most people couldn’t – like track pants, striped socks, and heeled loafers. Yes, together. She’s a mishmash of fashion, but she’ll always be wearing something like an interesting piece of turquoise jewelry, or a funky belt. Why am I telling you all this? Well, when I put on the Ginger belt by Nyte n Day that I picked up at the Summer of Love fair, my sister immediately popped up in my head, and I ended up putting together an outfit that reminded me a great deal of her.

Review - Today's Gaze - My Sister's Style

The Ginger belt is seriously awesome. There is a SERIOUS shortage of decent belts in SL, that is for sure. I think this belt is only at the fair at the moment, but I’m sure it will be in the Nyte n Day mainstore after the fair is over.

I kept the rest of my look kind of simple, as my sister would do. I’m wearing the Basic Black Cami from fri.day, and the black Rolled Docker Shorts by Elephant Outfitters, which I bought at the Armidi sale, via the Shop Armidi website. My shoes are definitely some my sister would love, the Chunky Claw Sandals from Shiny Things. As skins get more highlighted and shaded, I’m finding it easier to just rock my regular feet instead of fussing with tinting prim feet. Does anyone else find themselves doing that lately?

My other accessories are just a mash up of different pieces, much like my sister would do. The gorgeous Iroha earrings by Mandala, a bracelet from the Acat set by Mariposa, and a black Zeyla necklace, also by Shiny Things. I decided not to show off my sister’s curly curly hair and instead opted for the new Hailey hair by fri.day.

Although my sister will most likely never see this, I’m sure she would fully appreciate my outfit!
