A New York State Of Mind

[Full Credits Follow Post]
Lately there is a little piece of me in New York, the State that is. I kind of like that it's there and it's kind of nice to have nice things happening in my life again. It's been a long time since I've let anything in, I have been all up in my head and focused on my daily grind. When the days grind, I like to be in my element. This look is very me, with it's classic layering, fabulous accessories, and absolutely heart stopping jewelry, it's reminiscent of so many looks I have done over the years, yet almost everything is brand new, not only to me, but on the grid.
Speaking of New York, I was so thrilled to finally get to hit The Arcade event, and boy did I blow up my balance getting my hands on all kinds of awesome. I really wasn't too concerned about collecting entire sets of anything, I just wanted to sample a ton of 'New To Me' content, and it is all brilliant. How wonderful is this amazing [Consignment] Peg Board and Camera, both random prizes from one of the Gacha machines, and the map, yup.. New York! The Loft Arley Chair is so perfect, in any colour, but I adore this bright yellow.  With junk.'s morrison bar table, it is a great little corner accent to my loft.
Back to the fashion, I just had to snag up this pair of tulip. Strapped Booties at the COLABOR88 Event, there for just a few days more and then available in the mainstore. The fact that you can see my fabulous Slink Avatar Enhancement Feet through them, and my Flair toe polish, makes them a brilliant addition to my closet.  I pulled on a favorite jacket layer tank, and wondered what next, how can you layer on top of that? Well, this is the thing I am loving about Mesh, this delicious DeeTaleZ Cardigan goes over everything, with an alpha layer added, and it moves like fabric, I am so darn impressed it is an instant favorite.
I stacked on some of the brilliant [MG] La Cubelle bangle sets, now available at FaMESHed, with too many options to describe for both arms, and went with another FaMESHed find, Coquet.'s Cropped Denim Pants. Great hair with a hat stops my heart a beating, and this wig from MINA Hair is another fab example. Finally, my most favorite 'New To Me Find' is this adorable necklace from shimmerie, which looks like something I might have stumbled upon on Etsy, but it is so much more affordable. There are several cute variation available in the shop, I may have to go back and grab the others. When you take four years off from SL, everything is NEW again.
