Tomorrow, Today.

When times are hard, you do what you can to help others.  When need presents itself you roll up your sleeves and offer aid.  I practice this in my first life and as much as I can in my SL.  And while not every resident can have or needs a special fundraiser to help them with something personally devastating, occasionally such need does come along, and it is at these times we renew our faith in each other in some small measure.

Matchbook Monday, the maker of Amorous Jewelry and Accessories has asked for community support and aid to help her obtain a very costly dental procedure that may end years of continual costly dental work that has been personally and emotionally exhausting.

And so was born Tomorrow, Today. Held during the month of November, many great talents have come together and donated time and their professional work in hopes that some of you will come, shop and lend a hand.

Here are some of the awesome finds:

I hope you will be moved to check out the beautiful sim, shop some, and show your support for this fantastic designer.

Volstead @ Cinema!

I have been back to Cinema about 4 times now and really have enjoyed all the finds.  It makes such a difference when an event is full of exclusive items and new releases.

Cinema004

The dress from Volstead is so pretty and fresh, it was a must have as soon as I saw it.  It’s mesh, but a lace overlay, over system layers.  This works really well for the piece and gives it an added dimension.  And the handbag from Boom was all “OMG I need that now!”

Style Card:

  • Dress: Volstead – Liaison (Sky) (Cinema)
    Skin: Glam Affair – Lilith (America)
    Hair: Truth – Jemima (Jupiter) (NEW!)
    Necklace: Maxi Gossamer – Dog Tags (Peaceful Love) (Cinema)
    Shoes: Pixel Mode – Baby T’s (Plain, Sky)
    Nails: Synthetique – Color Tactics
  • Handbag: Boom – Sweetheart bag (teal) (Cinema)

The bed in the corner is a Cinema item from Trompe Loeil, and the Chinese Medicine Cabinet and Bonsai tree are from Apple Fall. Your Limo to Cinema Here.

More Vintage Fair Hotness!

If you haven’t been to the Vintage Fair yet, now is a great time to go, low lag, crowds have thinned down a bit and 3 sims full of vintage hotness.  Yes, 3 sims jam packed full.  And I have to say, the layout this year is one of the best event builds ever.  Easy to navigate, *beautiful* build by Cory Edo of Trompe Loeil, and not a bad spot on any of the sims.  It lasts until the 29th and is totally worth spending a few hours strolling through, just to see everything.

Happy Birthday Collabor88!

It’s Collabor88’s first birthday, and we get all the presents!  Collabor88 is jam packed with all the regular favorites and a ton of guest spots!  I’ve grabbed a few of my favorite pieces to share with you.

 

Tres Blah, Glam Affair & Elikatira all brought fantastic new items to this round of Collabor88.  I am in love with these leggings, they are slick and hot!  The skin from Glam affair is soooo gorgeous.  The Roza skin done in this fantastic porcelain shade.

Auxiliary has these great tanks and skirts, and of course I had to show off the sugar skull one, since I totally love them!  And with this skin, I thought it would be the perfect time to break out the pink.

ColdLogic does retro!

ColdLogic has just last week had a massive new release….  So it’s been burning up the blog rolls, and this is some of cutest retro styling around! From the cherries to  the bright inviting colors.  Denim capris and halter tops heading right on into the warm summer!

Like a step back into the past we head to the kitchen to see what’s in the fridge.  Of course that was after all the prepping and primping getting our outfits just right.  I am in love, love, love with these dresses.  And the cherries on Maci’s dress just pop!

Ok, so this is Maci and I…  and we do always seem to find ourselves in some compromising position.  Mainly because we both have nearly every pose Glitterati has ever produced and rarely a chance to use them!

The texturing on the new capris is awesome!  ColdLogic tends to fit both Maci and I very well, but remember individual results, will depend on your shape, so try the Demos!

Culture Shock – Vanguard & Wasabi Pills

If you haven’t been to culture shock, now is a great time to go.  Much of the crowd has died down and it is mostly lag free.  You still need to be wearing less than 50 scripts, so remember to remove some of those heavier scripted items!

Two more of my favorite finds at culture shock are the mesh spring dress by Vanguard and this hair from Wasabi Pills called Dominique2.  The dress has a great side swept texture that works well with it’s mesh construction.  This is a new designer for me, so I’m looking forward to going and checking out their main store later this week!

Wasabi Pills was one of the first on the block with mesh hair, and they keep releasing great new mesh additions to their line.  The face framing styles are all the rage right now and burning up the blog rolls.

Dress: Vanguard – Spring Dress (Rosie)
Skin:  Glam Affair – Lean (Natural)

Shoes: Pixel Mode – Plain Baby-T’s (Black) (Not Shown)

Pixel Mode… Back again!

Just when many of us were starting to wonder if we would see anything again from Pixel Mode they come back to stun us!  Beautiful new store, beautiful new build on the sim.  And some gorgeous new mesh clothing releases!

Fit and style come together in this gorgeous new dress from Pixel Mode called Missy shown in Sky.  The square cut neckline is so flattering and feminine without over exposing any…  umm…  bits. 

 Love the nautical themed items out this season, and Pixel Mode’s dress Adara Sailor in Navy is a true winner.  Great length, fit and flow.  It also comes with a rope belt (not shown)
