My Fall

Hello Readers!

It has been a bit longer than I would have liked, but some things cannot be helped.  I am happy to share I have a new system now so…yay me!  I am looking forward to maximizing it.

Today I bring you some recent releases from the lovely Romy Dash of Marshmallows.  I love the fall/winter in my area.  Southern California never gets truly cold where I am, but there is a nip in the air which means I actually get to bundle up a lil!  The recent releases of Romy’s made me think of a Southern California fall…a long sleeved comfy turtle neck, and then super short shorts and funky sandals.  This look really said fall in SoCal to me!  Enjoy!

I am really loving these sandals right now…I rarely take them off!  They do come with a color change HUD so it is really like you have at least 3 pairs of shoes instead of just one.

Please visit my SLurls page for all the necessary shopping links.

Thank you for reading!

Hello Readers!

I LOVE the fall.  I live in a pretty hot climate, and when the fall comes it is sooooo welcome! Today’s post pulls a bit of that in, along with my love of reading.

I am spotlighting a few of my sponsors in today’s post and I love how it came together.  It all started with the Harry Potter themed scarf from Kit Jefes of A Touch of Whimsy.  I got to meet this designer personally and it is clear she enjoys what she does.  I even posed for her ad, though I doubt any would recognize me!  I personally adore Harry Potter and think it is superb children’s literature.  As a role player I was thrilled to role play on a Harry Potter themed sim for a time.  I even wrote about it for AVENUE! (See my Writing Portfolio page and the Mischief Managed link.)

My idea behind this look was the cozy feel of fall curled up with a favorite book…or books.  Kit’s scarf was perfect with this comfy top from Tee*Fy, and some awesome new skinny jeans from Romy Dash of Marshmallows. She offers the jeans in three styles…birdy, flower, and star. Oh and I of course had to sport my Slink hands and feet.  Thanks to Shanty Bookmite of {MUA} I rarely take them off!  I am decked out in Hufflepuff yellow of course, the house I played a part of when I role played in Mischief Managed.

New from Marshmallows

Hello Reader!

RL can be a pesky thing sometimes.  I swear it is like my RL knows I really want to blog, then says “NO!” *chuckles* I am here now though, so let me share with you the latest from Romy Dash.  I cannot say enough how much I love the brilliant bold creations of Marshmallows.  They speak to my own personal fashion statement…something I call ‘Barrio Chic.’ For the non-Spanish speaking readers, barrio is Spanish for neighborhood, but it is a bit more than that really.  The barrio is home and family with a decidedly Latin flair.   For me the barrio conjures images of loud music and dancing, delicious aromas, and bold, sexy style.  Romy’s designs are certainly barrio chic to me, and her latest release is no exception.

I LOVE Maxi Gossamer jewelry and I was thrilled to find my latest MG purchases from FaMESHed worked with Romy’s wonderfully bold pants.  They are color change of course, which is one of the many reasons I love Maxi Gossamer.

Saturday Dress by Marshmallows

There is something about Saturday mornings that make them unlike other mornings.  For me it is the ability to rise as early or as late as I wish, and not have anything pressing to do beyond household chores.  For me Saturday mornings are spent at my own pace, drinking coffee and reading the blogs I follow, or working on writing of my own.  When I saw Romy Dash’s Saturday Dress, the feel of my easy Saturday mornings came to mind and the following styling was the result.

Lady in Flowers

Today I slipped on a lovely summer dress by Romy Dash of Marshmallows.  It is called “Lady” and I chose to wear the “flowers” version.  I have found my fashion palette is rather diverse and I enjoy looking and feeling pretty just as much as I enjoy pushing the envelope.  As I was sorting my inventory and praising myself for purchases I forgot I made, I came across the hair in this photo I am pretty certain I picked up at the hair fair.  I love all the soft curls and the romantic feel of it.  It comes with a color change hud which gives a lot of opportunity for variation.  So once I saw Romy’s dress I knew I had just the hair for it!

Soft Dots

Today I bring to you two new releases.  “Back Knotted Top & Dot Skirt” from Marshmallows and a new make-up set called “Soft” from {MUA}.  The “Back Knotted Top” comes in beachy, orange, and pink.  The “Dot Skirt” comes in coral, green, and purple.  I enjoy the fun in putting new releases together and I was very pleased with how this one turned out.  So I set out for the Love Donna Flora event and snapped a few photos before enjoying the offerings of many generous and creative designers.
