Just showin' a little Crush Row Love. <3

We here at Crush Row pride ourselves on our childlike nature at times, and the month of October is no exception to this silliness.

The great designers at Crush Row have signed up to offer you all a little trick or treat action from October 25th-October 30th.

Come to collect your Free to dollarbie goodies, but make sure you bring a big enough pillow case to cart all of your loot back home - word has it some of our designers have gone above and beyond the call of duty for this one.

Whatever your preference, trick or treat, don't miss out!


Wanna know what else? On October 30th Crush Row's nightclub Rumour will be hosting a Black & White ball with music rocking the sim from 6-10pm SLT. DJ's Bongo Oldbull & Damon Dollinger will be on site to make sure that you're getting the biggest bang for your boo as we ring in All Hollow's Eve with spooky style and crazy class.

Entry is first come first serve, attire is of course black (and white) tie, and masks are absolutely necessary. Don't be afraid to play with your look and theme yourself according to whatever it is you want to dress up as this year and make sure to stick around during the event because the prizes will be worth waiting for. (Cash prizes will also be awarded for the best dressed male and female of the evening) - See you and yours @ Crush Row!

Crush Row is located on the Doll City sim @

Oogity boogity.

Machang Pichot of AOHARU is probably the most adorable and generous person I've met in world - the adorable factor more than likely has something to do with her amazing personality (and throw in a charming language barrier too) and the crazy amount of admiration I have for her work. It's stupid how much I envy her skill and yet I can't praise it enough either.

She surprised me today with a load of Halloween themed goodies. Including, but not limited to: these fantastic boots, this fitted knit sweater and a pair of playful argyle socks. She also took Cari and I to Little Heaven to get this wicked broom (comes with 10 pose variations - fly while you shop!PS it was FREE!) The skirt's a favorite from Fishy Strawberry. Mix it all up and you've got one festive little ensemble, poifect for any witching hour.

Wednesday : Mashed.

It's the fifteenth which means two things. First, that I survived my birthday without a hint of a hangover (okay, okay so there was a mild headache.) Second, that the breeze outside without rain means that it is in fact fall in Florida.

Both of these things deserve gigantic amounts of mm's from the masses, I assure you.

Fall/Winter fashion makes me the happiest. Like, :D happy.

Now I know I mentioned that my shopping has been out of whack recently, and this just means I have a lot of friends to thank for sending (aka: taking pity on) me gifts of clothing to wear so I didn't just continuously wear the same pair of jeans and tank top sans shoes for months.

The most recent gift came from Iris Seale of Punch Drunk.

"Scene Queen"
The printed green tee matched with the metallic tights makes for one comfortably casual and yet stylish outfit.

Now, feeling fall as I am, I opted to layer it with an under layer turtle neck (with modded/shortened sleeves) from *BOOM*'s Milieu outfit in bark.

The boots are a combination of fur leg warmers, ON's Harajuku Punk Fur (part of the set that accompanied the jacket I featured a few posts ago) and the Florence boots in Urban Leo from Kitties Lair.

The earrings, although not exactly easy to see, are actually really adorable and from Kimberly Casanova Designs. The necklaces that go with these earrings are great and the color combinations are really perfect for the season.

The hair, also charming, is from *KUROTSUBAKI* hair_heart_7_brown.

And the location, as of late, has been Crush Row - the newest face of Doll City for those of you who've known me awhile. If you haven't checked it out yet, you should. You'll be able to find Punch Drunk's latest here as well as a really great variety of shops for your super shopping ventures.

The best thing about my wee shopping hiatus (which, if we're going to be honest with one another, I do have to admit that I
did shop, I just didn't do it "actively" -- which all my fellow addicts will understand the pace of which I mean) was that I didn't find myself frequenting the same shops I usually cannot live without.

I spent hours in my inventory (yes, hours - if you add up all the time, subtract the quick changes, and multiply the amount of free gifts my precious friends passed on you find yourself at hours) mixing and matching things I've had for over a year now and things I've only had a few minutes.

This proved to work best for the times I actually made it out of my skybox to go play social. I found that I wasn't matching anyone standing next to me. That is, my biggest pet peeve. People have argued in blogs before, even commented on quotes from me, which is lawl worthy, about the absolute inability to be unique in SL. I just so happen to disagree with that statement and find that I've just so happened to surround myself with some of the most unique looking avatars in world. See: Keeley Huet, Carissa Crimson, and Aranel Ah for examples.

Now, I'm not saying these girls take the cake on supreme uniqueness, I'm just saying that if I saw them, standing in a crowded room, without nametags or their significant others standing by, (and if it makes you feel better, if they were all in the same shape and not attempting to trick me by changing it up) I'd be able to tell who they were by what they were wearing.

So - long winded unique-ness commentation aside, I DO think it's possible to have your own unique style in world. I usually say that it's an absolutely necessary to do this by mixing and matching, but there are some designers who just make really killer out of box ensembles that look like they've already been haphazardly (used in the best way possible) styled.

Bijou, for example, is my favorite. Not only do I feel one hundred percent "me" when I walk into her store, which in itself is an incredible feeling -- but, her designs have a carefree, dare I say, "punk rock aloofness" that just makes anyone who's ever felt the need to be different, stand out in the absolute best way. The right way.

I know most of you know of, and have been to bijou. And I think that's fantastic. Maybe you feel one hundred percent you there too, which is also fantastic. The chances of us wearing it identically are slim to none, and that is also... well, you get the picture.

For those of you who haven't been, do yourself a favor and make time to check it out.

Hola babies.

It's been so long since I've written in here, I was convinced that I'd forgotten how to do it. And my slack hasn't just been in blogging, I haven't been much of a dresser lately either. (Been sticking more to comfort clothes, bad bad lazy Bho.)

But! Have no fear, I'm back and let's just say "better than ever" to make myself feel aces. Huzzah!

Carissa told me that I reminded her of Rachel Zoe, and I kept meaning to watch to see what she meant, but hadn't been able to until today (when the net went out of course) and well, I felt a tiny bit of inspiration.

First, let me just say that I'm not a big advocate of real fur in fashion. I'm not going to go throw red paint on anyone or anything, but, I'm what you'd call an animal lover. I also understand the importance of difference in texture when it comes to not only self expression but to completing a look as well. So, what better a way to not only wear, but not carry a single ounce of guilt when it comes to fur, then on SL! It's conflict free, and I assure you no prim animals were harmed in the making of this coat.
