But Why Did She Ask?

Happy Halloween, dear ones! So did you ever wonder while watching The Wizard Of Oz why Glinda asked Dorothy if she was a good witch or a bad witch like, a minute after saying only bad witches are ugly? Glinda, the queen of shade.

If you haven't done it yet, you need to get your Terror-iffic hunting on! It ends tonight!

Tea.S is in the hunt and you can find the Wicked Mat! How cute, right?? I chose the one that says "Go Away" but there is a "Welcome" one, too.

Miseria is also in the Terror-iffic hunt and you can find the Demona stilettos. These are so cute! They have little horns on the tops and heel is like a devil's tail!

Remember that Terror-iffic is a pay hunt, so all the prizes are $5L each. But it is WELL worth it for what you get! Just get it done soon!

By the way, if you're in SL tonight and want to go trick or treating with your family [or just on your own because you like candy!], there is a grid-wide Trick or Treat event happening! Many families, including my own, have set candy out for you to take! Some places REALLY went all out with pumpkin patches and haunted houses and all kinds of stuff! Check it out if you're interested!

Be safe out there tonight, tricksters!

I Just Can't Seem To Shake You, Emily.

One rule I've always had is "DEMO. DEMO. DEMO!!!!" But on occasion, I forget. It never really ends well. Case in point... this absolutely beautiful dress from B.C.C.!

Style - I Just Can't Seem To Shake You, Emily


The Emily Romantic Corset Dress by B.C.C. for The Seasons Story is lovely and so completely my style. I was so excited to wear it while we've been on vacation that in my haste, I didn't demo. Unfortunately, the dress is "standard sized" pretty much in name only. The Small does fit me, but then I noticed something really really wrong with the arms.

That doesn't fit


At first I thought it was my Slink hands because sometimes longer sleeves don't fit quite right over them. But as you can see, my hands stop well before the sleeve starts. I tried moving up to a size Medium, but for some reason, that made the dress completely jam into my shoulders, although the opposite should have been true. I even went up to a size Large, which was not really that much larger than the Small and came with its own set of issues. Then I tried changing my shape, but that didn't really work that well. I sent a notecard to the creator a couple of days ago to ask if maybe I could get a new alpha that goes down a little further on the sleeves, but I don't know how much that's going to fix the problem and I haven't heard anything back anyway.

That all being said, this dress is really really pretty. If you want to buy it, definitely demo it first!

Just A Little Sweet

I'd like to give a special "Hello!" to anyone looking at my blog for the first time via the Old London Docks fashion feed! Welcome! I'm sorry I'm boring! :)

One awesome thing about our Grand Canyon vacation is that we have a bakery just a little ways from the lodge. So when I don't want to make the bigger hike up to the coffee shop, I can pop in here and grab a cupcake. Because really? Hiking in heels is not for the faint of heart.

Style - Just A Little Sweet


I really think the Rayna jumper from Drift for The Liaison Collaborative this month is adorable! It's very simple, but there are HUDs so you can change the color and the fabric of the jumper. I'm wearing it in blue tweed, but you can also wear it in a different color and a cotton fabric.

Ingenue released the Grady heels for Collabor88 this month, and they're just perfect! I should have gotten a better shot of them [sorry, I have vacation brain] but there is a tiny little key hanging off of the button on the strap. So cute! You will need the Slink medium feet for these.

Have a great humpday!

Had To Get Away

Happy Sunday! If you don't follow my personal blog, you might not know that my family and I are on vacation this week! We just arrived here last night, so today I had a chance to explore a bit. And it's a good thing I have new boots to go hiking in.

Style - Had To Get Away - Boots


Fri.day is at Collabor88 this month with the Wendy boots. These are awesome! I have been looking for lace up boots like this for a while, and the fact that they come with a sock top is even better. You don't have to wear the top, but it's super cute. The sock, laces, and eyelets are all color change with a HUD, and you can resize through the HUD as well. For those of you who are into just a little bit of mayhem this Halloween season, there is even a little blood splatter you can put on your boots.

I hope everyone has had a marvelous weekend!

And Then She Returns

What? Two posts in one day? What kind of craziness is this?! But seriously, y'all, I had to do another because there is just so much awesome stuff out there!

Rebel Hope is at The Liaison Collaborative this month with the Lia dress and the Destiny thigh high boots. Sexy!!

Style - And Then She Returns

Style - And Then She Returns - Boots


Short, tight, and showing skin in all the right places, this dress is ridiculously hot. But make sure you wear underpants because I just upskirted myself and hello dolly! The boots are just awesome, too! I adore the zipper detail up the back and the larger zipper pull that goes over the thin heel.

Pairing this look up with the Thalia hair and crown from Truth for the Mystic Realms Faire made me feel like Persephone, queen of the underworld. She goes back to the underworld in the fall, you know.

And speaking of the underworld...

Style - And Then She Returns - Nails & Rings


Stellar made fantastic nail polish and a matching rings set called Hellraiser for My Slink Obsession this month! The rings are all together and fit the casual Slink hands the best, but they are mod so you can make sure that you get the best fit. And the nail polish is a glossy red to black fade that looks great if you have your nails at any length. I just chose the pointed nails to complete my look today.

I promise, last post here today. But more tomorrow!

Checking In

There are SO many things going on right now, y'all! I might need to start posting twice a day just to show it all! [Okay, okay. Let's not get crazy.]

How cool is the Checkout At 11 set by Second Spaces for Collabor88?

Style - Checking In

Style - Checking In - Hutch

Style - Checking In - Guestbook


You THINK it's just a run down hotel set, but then you check the guestbook. Oh my! That's not a hotel I want to stay at!! There are 5 pieces to the set - the counter, the hutch, the guestbook, and 2 luggage trolleys, one with and one without luggage. Total land impact for the set if you use the trolley with the luggage is only 7. ONLY 7!

Trunk or Treat started today and that is where I got my Happy Halloween Garland from Windsong. The garland is free! You really want to check out this event, especially if you are a kid! There are a few gachas, lots of very inexpensive items, and freebies, too!

Happy shopping!

I Never Know

So here's the thing about me. I never know what actually goes together. Weird confession from a fashion blogger, right? Part of the reason I'm so slow with blogging most of the time is because I have NO clue how to really dress myself and pretty much everything I put together is a big accident. I have lots of pieces that I love, but putting them together is hard for me! I know that today, I really like my outfit. Does it all really go together? Not a clue. But I'm happy!

Style - I Never Know


FaMESHed opened last week and how cute is the Miss Muffet outfit from Cracked Mirror?? The cardigan and shirt are actually two pieces, so you can put another shirt underneath and wear the cardigan with something else. The fluffy pleated skirt is just all kinds of cute. And as you can see, it all fits over the Slink Physique body pretty darn well. There are fitted mesh versions of the clothes in addition to the standard sizes, if you're into that kind of thing.

Have you been out to Uber yet? It's a hot one! I'm wearing the Validation shoes from L.Warwick that you can find out there, and although you can't really tell in the picture, they have a great wedge heel. Truth is also at Uber with the Vixen hair and if it were summer and I were still blonde, you'd confuse me with Marilyn Monroe. [Well...maybe.] The Vixen hair also comes with a mask for when you want be in costume.

Have a great day!
