Weeee, FIVE DOWN! 360 TO GO!
Today’s LoTD is a bit girly and very beautiful, imo! I saw this dress at FaMESHed and wanted them all, but told myself to just buy ONE and savour it, so I did (probably go back, this is me we’re talking about). This is the Xai Dress in Smudge and she’s sooo lovely, with a ruched top and a silky look, it’s the perfect little not black dress. My Clutch is new from TDR Fusion and is by Glow, you can choose from 2 colour packs, the other had a black bow, but I loved these girly colours and I think it matches quite well really! My hair is the Whimsical style from Magika, perhaps because of the cute little standy up strand, love it… totally a bit different! My nails are from Izzies and are her Glitters, changeable with HUD if you don’t already know, but i’m sure you do. The pose is from my own store, Frooti, my eyes are from the delectable IKON and more about the skin below!
The skin I am wearing both in the LoTD picture and below is from Tuli! YES! Tuli is BACK! With 2 new special skins out at TDR Fusion there was a collective SQUEE across the grid. Both skins are just gorgeous, as you can see above, you get to choose from a nice pastely coloured eye and lips to a more neutral, smokey eye and lip. Both are under $L100 too, so there is literally NO excuse for you not to try them! So glad to see you back, Tuli!
That’s all she wrote for now, folks.

.. and what better to warm your cockles than a new round of C88?! I’ve mixed and matched a few items here, so bear with me (I also used the new LL Beta Viewer to try out pics, not convinced yet but who knows, I like being to use ambient occlusion again!)
I found a doorway, was it to Narnia? It was to MY Narnia, or was that Nirvana? I wish it was THE Nirvana, but ho hum, you can’t work miracles, or can you?
This is my new, and wonderful home, the one the door leads to, or from.. depends on which way you’re going, I suppose. It’s the new Frostbite Cottage from Trompe Loeil for this months Collabor88 and boy oh boy, it’s a beaut! It’s mesh (obvs) and CUTE. LOOK AT IT. It’s not huge inside, more like a hideaway cabin, but I love that it comes with it’s own fresh snow and snow covered pine trees, and inside a beautiful fire to warm you up! I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of Trompe Loeil, I almost squee’d my pants when I saw this, true story.
Circa also have a lot of hoilday items out at the minute, including an advent calender too! This fireside table and comfy looking chair are among my favourite of the larger items, so I positioned them careful so I could stare out of the window, incase there were.. you know.. vampires or wolves about…
so I could just get naked and wait.. figure out how to protect myself.
Circa meets Trompe Loeil here! The other C88 items from the Trompe include chairs, and a loveseat, in various colours to match the palette. They are comfy, and gorgeous and are definitely something you want in your little loveshack or getaway. I paired them up with a cute frosted mirror, and a few hanging pine decorations as well as a celestial side table and a noel candle decoration item from Circa! I couldn’t find my table, so it lives on the floor, you’ll understand, right? You have to visit both C88 and Circa to get your hands on these babies!
Here is a little something I threw together with some close ups of the gorgeous array of Circa going on in my Frostbite Cottage! You’ll agree it’s all adorable and it’s the little touches that make it worthwhile!
Now onto my other fave thing.. My C88 LoTD!!! I do love when a new round starts and I can play dress up for a while, especially because I love everything at C88, always, without exception (ok a few times there are exceptions, but not often!). Fashionably Dead came up with a GREAT item/s this time around! You get cute lil collared long sleeve dresses and Sweaters that fit over them! LIKE SNUG FIT!! Ugh so in love, you can wear as separates too, but I love that these fit together like a jigsaw, LOVE! I chose the yellowy colour and paired it with a black sweater, to compliment my Vail boots from Hucci! Shown here in Midnight, also available in Alpine, that is referring to the fur colour! Also worn is one of the 2 new Wasabi Pills styles. This is version 2, which comes in a lil pony, version 1 is free flowing down your back! Both very gorgeous.
Also worn are the gorgeous mesh La Gyo earrings, and of course, one of the new 3 Frostbite Glam Affair Skins! La Gyo have various items out for your perusal, but I love these earrings! So cute and colour change too! YAY! The skins, as you can imagine, made me fall in love. You can get the three looks shown below, I don’t know how you’d manage just one tho! I wouldn’t be able to resist the rosy cheeks, the icey eyes or the kissable gloss on any of the three!
More to come on Collabor88, but I hope you liked the above items for now! Except this tree, which is so cute it deserves to be here (Circa.. go! NOW!)

Tonnnns of new goodies since Collabor88 has opened with yet another round, so I have a C88 themed LoTD and a gorgeous new skin for you!
The new Geanna skin from Izzie’s is AMAAAAAAAAAAAAZING! I love all of Izzie’s skins, so it’s no surprise that I went ASLDFJASLDF when I saw this one! There area superb rang of tones to lightest porcelain through to darkest ebony, so something for everyone with this sweet, innocent skin! I have taken a pic of 8 out of the 10 tones available (do not even ask where the other 2 went, I DON’T KNOW):
Each skin comes with sooo many options! Although be noted that a few of the darker tones only come with ONE eyebrow colour, but this is what you stand to get with a majority of the tones: skin with dark/light/blonde/red brows, each of those again with cleavage options, freckles on tattoos layers (face | body and face), 12 lipsticks on tattoo layers, 11 eyeshadows on tattoo layers, nail base (for prim nails) eyeliner tattoo, 1 mod/copy shape and 1 mod/copy eyebrow shaper! I don’t think anyone can deny that it’s a STEAL to buy one of these skins, or all of them… whatever floats your boat! I have showcased all of the makeups available in a mix and match effort below:
My C88 LoTD – Take 1 features the Izzie’s skin, alongise the gorgeous new hair from D!va, a gorgeous mesh sweater and skirt combo from U.F.O and the most delectable booties from Hucci! The theme for this round of C88 is “Painted Desert” with a pallate of gorgeous oranges, a greyey blue and more! I love love LOVE this sweater, I always find U.F.O stuff comes up VERY small on me, but layering this top over the skirt, the size didn’t come into it! Both very gorgeous pieces. I also cannot praise the Hucci boots enough! A really gorgeous style in some really sweet colour combos. What more could a girl ask for? Well I’d like C88 to send me a puppy in RL but that’s a whole other wish.

This post is bought to you by the number 3! 3 looks I made from C88, that is!
First I put on the Ploom hair, which is lovely! Longer at the front with a lil band and shorter at the back and it looked lovely with the Hucci Dress! I chose the brighest one I could find, that I liked, and I love that the chest is so good on Hucci stuff, not droopy, good choices for size, infact Hucci is some of the best fitting stuff for me without tweaking, good job, Hucci!
Next we have hair from Clawtooth, a lovely long braid with heavyish bangs, what a lovely whimsical style!! I paired it with the outfit from Iren, which is like a corset with a lil pantie with it! Very cute and vintage looking, you can get the corsets separately, too! I put on the Yummy necklace, which you HAVE to check out, it’s so beautiful, it comes in silver and gold!
Finally, my fav look! The 2nd choice from Clawtooth is the same/similar hair, but without the bangs! well they are more to the side and it’s still beautiful!!! I paired it with the gorgeous yellow corset from Ingenue! This is one of my fav corsets in SL so far! The detailing is just wonderful, even down to the zip!!! Beautiful mesh work and wonderful texturing, YOU MUST GET IT!!! I finished off the look with Carolines necklace, which I blogged yesterday!
