Home At Last...
So what has this little fashion addict been up to this past week, well I can tell you it has not been anything anyone would envy. No fancy vacations, no big exciting changes in work or family, nope, I was in hospital. Last Friday night I felt pretty ill after my DJ gig at PIN UPS, and found I was running a fever, took a nap and woke up to some serious abdominal ouchies. So into the Emergency Department I went, as a nurse I stay away from the patient side of the bed if at all possible, and whoopie doo, I was really actually very critically ill. I avoided surgery by a hair, and spent several days doped up in a coma like state, it sounds more fun then it actually is. When I finally made it back home, heading in-world was never less appealing. Compared to bed and copious amounts of Percocet, I mean, really! I finally felt well enough to DJ my regular Friday event last night, and would have spent today in bed recovering if we didn't need a last minute fill in tonight. So, I am back in action, and that means back to blogging, the guilt about not posting was getting to me. I am so responsible, even when high as a kite.
So this is the look I was wearing the night that I got sick, and when it came to blogging it, I was glad. It is cozy, and real, and the kind of thing I would be wearing while wrapped in my comforter watching the US Presidential Debate. Good Times. With the addition of [Pink Outfitters] to Retrology, I discovered this great shop for the first time, and the one must-have for me was this awesome Cropped Hoodie in Kiwi. The perfect item to layer with, and the sculpted hood is really well done. It comes in half a dozen delicious colours, but I couldn't resist the green. How [Pink Outfitters] escaped my notice until now, I have no idea, but I have the mainstore on my "Must Shop" list now. I threw a great basic tucked T-Shirt on, this Neko Case Tee was a find from *Bagley* when the Starlust Motel first opened, and I believe it was a dollarbie. I love tucked options with tops and wish more people offered them, not everybody wants their belly hanging out all the time. The yummy Violet Skinny Jeans are from Gbberish, a place you have to visit, particularly for the amazing shoes. I thank Anessa for that hot tip, the girl knows where to find shoes to die for.
Shoes are the brilliant new Pornstar Xtra Hi-Tops from Urban Bomb Unit. These shoes have so many scripted options, you could spend over half an hour just playing with the options. I love this (Yummy) Fanny Pack EXTREEEME!, and have worn it quite a bit. It is great with a casual look where carrying a purse just seems silly. This great Blue Strawberry Necklace was a discovery at *i-Candy*, one of my favorite new places for accessories. (Shiny Things) offers up this cute Roses and Thorns Ring, part of a great set that was a gift from Draco early in our relationship. I love small prim work, and (Shiny Things) has the skill down to a art in their jewelry. Some simple but cute Beads and Bangles from WRONG add to the casual pieced together feel of this look.
Another Hair Fair find for me was hair from Eat Rice!, and this Vylorna wig is so fun with a touch script to change the colour of the front section. It is like Manic Panic to the Nth degree, change your look entirely with one click. Skin is Celestial Studios Charmed Line, the Purple Sunset make-up is another long time fave. I love these spider like Club 1 Lashes from Celestial Studios, a great dramatic look even when going with a grungier style. Eyes are beauties from Miriel, the Hazel Eye in the Big size is more like jewelry then any other eyes I have seen. So I guess I am officially back into blogging action, and can't wait to see what recent purchases I have already forgotten about. It's like finding hidden treasures. Apologies in advance for being wordy, a wonderful side effect of prescribed narcotics.
