Choo Choo!

I see all the Christmas trees and snow surrounding us in SL, but I just can’t seem to get Fall/Autumn out of my mind. I live in the south, and we are not quite in winter yet. (Not that we ever are) So, you will not see me bundled up as a snow bunny just yet, even though I promise I have the inventory of winter clothing to delight you for months. 🙂

For today’s outfit, I was inspired by all the holiday travel. Travel by train has always intrigued me. Although, after watching the Sex and the City episode; I guess it’s not as glamorous as my imagination… Thankfully, I have SL to keep it a beautiful dream.
And now, the most important part of my train ride… The clothes!
There have been some great new releases lately. In this outfit I used new releases from LeeZu Baxter and the amazing, beautiful, comfortable boots from Stiletto Moody. I couldn’t go on any trip without my animals, so I am carrying my cat in the Z Bag from Zoobys. One of the most versatile unique bags in SL. I love it!

Floating on bubbles of happiness!

After a fairly dramatic SL day, I decided to go to a happy place and float on some bubbles.
Of course I was wearing a super cute outfit, so I decided to take some pics.
I’m not going to say anything more, as IM arguments have worn me cute little fingers out for the day. One word ladies, don’t start romantic relationships with your friends.

One afternoon, taking a break from reading:

I am just adoring the cold front that recently came through my hometown. I’ve been bundled up by the fire reading all day. It’s inspired me to continue dressing in lots of layers in SL. I think I’ve decided to just continue wearing jackets throughout the summer in SL.. afterall, fashion is all about being different 🙂
Now I show off a little fun comfy and fashionable number. I took this look straight to the bookstore where I shot these pics. First off the bag, I thought this bag was perfect to carry my favorite book. It is the everyday tote by ETD. Hurry over and grab it while everything is on sale. You can’t beat the prices on the fatpacks right now. And the AO with the bag is amazing. All the shots I took were using the AO built in to the bag. It’s not my usual walk and stand, but I really do enjoy it. I kept extra warm in the plush winter jacket by Ibizarre which I found in their discount outlet store. Again, great price and this jacket is so well made. Everyone has been blogging the yeti jacket from Muism, but if that is out of your price range than the Ibizarre jacket is a perfect substitute. Shopping list follows below! 🙂

Vintage Sugar

I haven’t been blogging much the past week because I’ve just been so busy getting everything ready to open my new shop. I’m super excited and can’t wait! In the meantime. I’ve also been in photoshop alot and had a little fun with this so I wanted to share. Vintage Sugar. She’s always fashionable. 🙂

Sugar Sighting @DeLa Fashion Show!

While stumbling through fashion blogs I found this picture on the =DeLa*= blog.
Hooray it’s a Sugar Sighting and an introduction of a new segment on Gumbo Glam.
Feel free to pass on your pics of me at great fashionable places for my new piece Sugar Sighting Here’s hoping I show up in many more places. I should mention that Barbarella is an amazing model..

Cock-A-Doodle Do!

I have to admit, that one of my favorite all time shows was Arrested Development. I love the repeat chicken reference from Gob, and one of the best episodes is when the entire family makes their version of “acting like a chicken”.
Okay, so this outfit is Heron not Chicken. But it’s still feathers and it made me think about that.
Now to the fashion… I seriously can’t get enough of Paper Couture’s new line. I know it’s been blogged… A LOT… But, I still feel the need to express my love. It’s fab and if you don’t own most of it already, you should be like the rest of the fashion universe and go buy it. Come On! It’s fun to be like everyone else…(just as long as you do it in your own way)

Curious Girl

It’s not very often that I wear an outfit purely “off the rack.” But I saw the Gaya Girl outfit at Bijou and I have to say, it is coordinated perfectly. The yellow against the soft sea green and grey is beautiful. I also took the photos on the grand staircase at Bijou. I decided to stay as casual as possible and chose the Chunky Ribbon Boots from Shiny Things. Ladies, do invest in the HUD. You will have matching laces for every outfit under the sun, and even moon for that matter. Hair was only 30 Lindyloos at ETD’s sale. (going on until December 26th).
