new year hope

happy new year, everybody!

new year hope

2017, man.. what a year. it had some good times, no doubt about it, but i dunno about y’all.. it really flipped us off on its way out. i for one am glad to let 2017 and everything that came with it, be behind me.

i am.. cautiously optimistic about 2018. i’m hopeful. i feel like you *have* to be hopeful, otherwise the tough times of the previous year just keep their hold on you into the next. and i want more than anything to have a fresh start, to have this year be better than the last, so i’m hopeful for now that the new year will bring good things to us.. all of us.

my girls && i are wishing everyone a happy, healthy, prosperous 2018. cheers to a new year and to new experiences, and be hopeful with us that 2018 will be better. ♥

autumn look book

fall is officially here! rejoice rejoice~ the time for dark, rich colors and cooler weather, for apple cider and pumpkin spice, for layering with boots and scarves and tights and all that fun stuff!

since i’ve been a little absent this month (eh heh) i decided to put together four looks for you that, to me, just *scream* autumn!

and let’s start off with shades of brown…

tan ‘n’ brown can sometimes be boring if it’s too much, but not wearing it all over and mixing in some other shades works well to keep it from being too samey. tall boots, like these ones from reign, go *perfectly* with this shorter tee*fy dress (that’s out @ n21) and when topped off with a coppery sweater by foxes it not only is in a warmer, fall-appropriate palette.. but it looks super cute, too!

since the leaves are all starting to turn gold, i thought a deeper, darker yellow color might be nice for fall, too. yellow isn’t a color i wear often, but when matched with a pair of nice, neutral blueberry jeans (that are part of this month’s luxe box) && some nude colored reign pumps.. it’s not at all overwhelming or harsh.

rich garnet red is a color that is, in my opinion, the epitome of fall. it not only reminds me of the leaves changing colors, but of apples and cinnamon too. and you can *totally* get away with wearing shorts, like these from blueberry, in the autumn by layering ’em up with tights (from atomic @ c88) and some super cute flats (by reign, also @ c88). having longer sleeves, like this sweater from tres blah (which is part of this month’s luxe box) and even topping it off with a cute infinity scarf like this one from erratic will keep you warm even with bare legs!

and lastly, wearing grey ‘n’ black is appropriate for fall too.. like with this long emery top i grabbed @ uber, and black suede pants from ison from luxe box this month.. but it doesn’t need to be drab if you add in a few extra accents of color. it’s like that old cliche, matching your shoes to your bag, and i decided to wear these reign pumps && this c’est la vie purse both in brighter red to break up the darkness of the rest of my outfit. and i think it looks casual and put together without being dreary.. like the weather can sometimes be in autumn!

so! four looks, all fall-themed in style && color. i love this season both for the weather and the food, but most importantly.. for the fashion!

in case you’ve not heard, there is a new “subscription” service in sl called luxe box. it’s like all those popular surprise boxes in rl.. you pay a fee every month for a box full of goodies, delivered right to your door, and you don’t know beforehand what you’re gonna get.

this concept, to me, is quite appealing. not only do i love surprises and subscription boxes in rl appeal to me a lot too, but also.. for luxe box, it was basically all of my favorite brands participating. blueberry, foxes, tee*fy, erratic, reign, tres blah, magika, scarlet creative, mish mish and so on.. the line up is pretty good, yeah?

so i joined basically the *second* the group was open, and i excitedly awaited my box…


and i gotta say, i’m pretty pleased with it!

for the first one, the contents were fantastic. fatpacks.. fatpacks everywhere! cute dresses, *awesome* shoes, cropped tops, lovely hairstyles, even houses && furniture. i’m wearing my personal favorites from the box above, and had so much fun unpacking everything && looking at it all.

i will say, though.. there were a couple of items inside that i wasn’t terribly keen on, and was a little disappointed that two of the items were maitreya lara exclusives. now of course, i do own that body, but my personal preference for mesh bodies is actually slink’s hourglass. it’s not a huge problem for me because i’ve just grown used to swapping bodies to wear this brand or that brand, but for other customers who may have just invested in one mesh body that isn’t maitreya then it might be a problem. for something that’s supposed to be a surprise.. that you buy before you can see anything inside.. it seems like it might be a good idea to offer things anyone and everyone can wear, not just owners of one specific body (despite how popular said body is).

overall, however, i really like the concept and am excited to see what comes in the next few months! as far as pricing goes, i’d say i’d be willing to pay double, triple even quadruple(!) the amount of this first month as long as the quality and color options for the items in the box remains the same. it could be that this first month was fatpacks galore because it was the very first one, and as the months go by that could change, but at least for now.. i’m willing to keep subscribing to see what comes.

did you subscribe to luxe box? did you like it? i think it’s fun and exciting, and something different than the insane amount of sim-specific events. i’m looking forward to seeing next month’s box and beyond~
