I am Posh Barbie today with AnaLu's great suggestions: Dutch Touch or MG fashion for clothes, AuMa or Truth for boots and ETD (still on sale) for hair. I went with an old MG Fashions outfit from last season, one that I still love (that corset! Those pants! That poofy yet shapely sweater!). I also found a few items from ETD in my wardrobe, a lovely hat from an old St. Patrick's Day hunt, and this hair that I think I got for Boy Ach.
The boots are brand new. I saw them advertised and hungered after them to the extent that I popped into Truth to look at them. I admit that I quickly fled -- I was dressed in Christmas Loli that day, and felt completely out of place in the realm of sweaty midriffs. This gave me a good excuse to return and snag a pair before running back to Loli-ville...
Also new are these awesome gloves from the jeweler Bliensen + MaiTai. These gloves have gorgeous color-changing cuffs, and come in a variety of shades. If you look closely at the bottom picture, you'll see that I discovered the cuffs' color-changing ability after I took my first few photos...hee, I fail. Still, they suited the Christmassy quality of this outfit, and I love the buckles.
The skin is an old group gift from Dutch Touch, and I really like it - great collarbones! It isn't my usual pale gothy type thing either, but it is very well done, and the Dutch Touch group is lucky to get such quality free items. Speaking of quality free items, good God, people, be nice to kindly creators. They barely make enough money to run their sims in these times of economic depression, and you dare bitch? Sheesh.
To end on a happy note, I completely deny feeling the Christmas spirit.
