There are so many new things to talk about in this post that it's not even funny! Figures that it's Saturday and my child is home and I've got to try to write about this around entertaining her. Ah well, RL before SL, right? First, katat0nik has lovely new dresses and boots at her store in Axis Mundi. There was a launch party for the boot store and art walk last night, and the second I saw katat0nik in her new dress I hopped over to get it immediately. I picked up new boots while I was there -- wow, the shape and design! I might need a fat pack! There are two other colors of the Carousel frock, but obviously I had to wear the orangey one.
More new things. Violet Voltaire has a new shop in Haven Shire! I went while SL was completely borked yesterday and stared around with deep disappointment because I couldn't purchase anything. I returned to snag the lovely new hair ribbons, cheekily named "Girl Germs." They do look like the ultimate girl accessory, don't they? I'm forever wearing Violet's Gank set on my boy av, but he probably won't be able to sport the tiny hair bow and maintain his masculine dignity. (Bah. Who needs that anyway?)
Last, but not least by a long shot, the elusive Jackal Ennui has reappeared with two new releases -- a pair of shoes named Laudanum, and a necklace and earring set named Medea. Laudamun comes in three colors and has the classic shape that we've come to expect from Miss Jackal, a fusion of usefulness (they're patterned after winklepickers!), and careful craftsmanship that means they'll be glued to my feet for days to come. Imagine, comfy shoes for my avatar.
The Medea necklace comes from the spare geometry of Greek mythos (*cough* watch as I make shit up), and makes my avatar feel adorned like a proud and scheming sorceress.
*happy sigh* -- What a good clothing day. I feel like I've accomplished something!
