I heard from a couple of different places that Honey, not a new designer but in a new shop, was a having a sale the other day and so I popped over to check it out. After having been on SUCH A cocktail dress binge lately, I’ve been itching to let the more casual, old-school Gidge out of the closet for a bit. Yesterday it was men’s clothes but today I had to slip back into something a little more girly. The designs at Honey are what I think we’re all coming to expect, lotsa nice details – fun fresh color combinations and realisitic fashions.
Because while I appreciate the Bird Cage dress, I’m not wearing it OUT.
I’m also indulging in a bit of nostalgia here. This hair, from CAKE, was my first nonsystem hair. My friend Queen bought it for me about a year and a half ago, and then I went systemically through their store over the next few months buying every single STYLE of this color. Now just a note about this hair. You can see the clip there? Ok, as a new player, been playing like oh 20 minutes, I was whisked around SL to upgrade the AV and this hair was one of the purchases. Those hair clips says SCRIPTED. I never, ever, in a year and a half ever bothered to check what that meant. I thought it was referring to the hair being flexi frankly………and then when I got dressed…..I touched them.
THEY ARE COLOR CHANGE! GOOD GOD! NOTE TO DESIGNERS Say COLOR CHANGE in the description. Help out a new player. Because I’d worn them so long, I quit LOOKING at the descriptions a long time ago. I was just messing about when getting dressed when I noticed it and thought “scripted? I wonder what they mean”.
I’m also wearing the PXL Creations Crys with Natural Eyes, Natural Lips and freckles. I thought it a really nice touch to this bohemian style. I continue to marvel at how their “natural” colors still have such nice definition. I would NEVER have chosen them yet I truly love the look and now I’m addicted.
**Now, a FREE AO Note, so many FREE AOs just plain suck it. I mean, they do – they are horrible. You stand wonky, you shift jerkily, they’re bizarrely unnatural in all ways. I saw the lovelies on Free Style recommend a free AO from Imperial Elegance the other day and since my friend Sloitkut just came to SL for Blogher and decided to STAY, I’ve had my eye out for a reasonable AO for her. I went over to Imperial Elegance and picked up the free one on the wall – called Casual Girl. WOW. I told the designer Sai, last night, when I took Sloitkut over to pick it up, how totally impressed I was with it. If you are in NEED of an AO or would like to add one to your repertoire…..pick this one up. It’s nice.
