Stranded

for items used, please see below credits

Happy Sunday everyone ,

What a night! Yesterday on the way home, i became surprised by a violent storm – in wich my car decided to stop the service. Thank god I found on a farm hideout. The friendly older couple living there (yes, they also have a very cute looking son) spontaneously offered me to stay the night in their barn. And when the storm has passed by, her son will have a look at my car.
I have gladly accepted their offer. And we spent a wonderful evening all together. And just as a side note, her son is already a gem – everything else I leave to your imagination!

But, before rumors come up, I better start telling you about my todays look. Today, I mixed items from the Mesh Around 2012 and the upcoming CHIC² Event. And yes, they perfectly match together. The wide sweater, I’m wearing today is the huntgift from [NN]-Designs and hidden at their mainstore. I’ve combined this great jumper with my coldLogic Capri Pants. (blogged here). Also as a gift you can find the “Yolanda” Hair in Mesh Around 2012. This great, classical hairstyle is from Alice Project.

Have you seen the this adorable neacklace I’m wearing today? It’s avaialbe at the (upcoming) CHIC² Event from MG – Maxi Gossamer. Let me tell you something about the CHIC² Event, starting tomorrow. CHIC² is the birthday celebration of CHIC Event Managment. It’s a suprinsing venue, with a very special twist in it. So, ladies, better mark it in your calender and shedule a visit there. Oh, and this event is very great to do a shopping spree together with your significant other. But back to the great Sun Eden Pendant Necklace I’m wearing today. This detailed mesh necklace is really, really sweet and unique.  It comes in three different versions (long, short and mini Orbit) and you can select by menu if you want to wear it as golden or silver necklace, to fit to your outfit.

A word about the prop I used in this blogentry, before you find the credits for todays blogpost. These great prop is available also at CHIC², and is available from BENT. This prob includes 10 different Poses, wich are controlled by menu. So a lot of photofun will be ahead for you.

Happy Birthday CHIC

chic2_1

Here I am now with everything prepared. I have my best clothes on (I mean – I even wear a hat), the room is tidy, I have some birthday cocktails prepared and I got some fresh flowers. The only thing missing is the honored guest: CHIC. Because it is its birthday. CHIC turns 2 – well actually tomorrow, but since CHIC is famous and has many, many friends I thought it would be a good idea to celebrate it a day beforehand. Well – good idea, but CHIC did not appear. I mean – I can understand that perfectly cause CHIC is organising a huge celebration by itself and has a lot of things to do. And hey, I am just a small blogger and I really can not expect that CHIC can make room in its incredible busy schedule just to drop by, say hello and have a Manhatten or two. Nevertheless – I am a bit disappointed of course since I spent ages to clean my house, dress up, preparing the cocktails and getting these darn fresh flowers.

The birthday event is called CHIC² and of course all brands which work together with CHIC are having a booth there and offer complete new items. I was lucky to get an early access to CHIC² and the place is overwhelming. Little boxes arranged like a tower and each box is decorated individually by the designers to celebrate together with CHIC. This is an event – sure, but somehow also a state of the art installation of what you can do in second life with a little bit of creativity. You literally can spend ages there to see what ideas the creative minds of SL have come up with. Oh – and you can also shop there for new and exclusive items also!

The vest and shirt is the first release at CHIC² item from 22769 ~ casual couture, and like all new items from the store it is mesh and it comes in male standard sizing. The guys from 22769 offer 4 different color options at the event – I am wearing the white shirt and the brown vest. I like especially the idea that the shirt/vest combinations also are in a trans version at the place – so people can buy the clothing as a gift – and that is what birthdays are about anyways: gifts!

The hat and hair are the new male release by [Atro Patena] and also available at CHIC². And also the “Coffee and Cigarettes” pose from STATUS (part of a pose pack with 10 poses) can be found there. The poses include – of course – the cigarette and the coffee cup.

And now: the brilliant furniture! I saw it and I instantly fell in love. You know that I have a thing for retro stuff anyways, but the Haarlem Deco Set from POST lifted my expectation up to a complete new level. The texturing of every item included in this set is unbelievable. The love for detail is marvellous. And all pieces are copy – so you can rez as much chairs and sofas and tables (and vases with fresh flowers) as you want to. The deco set fits in every home and if you have a thing for style – this is your purchase! Of course the Haarlem Deco Set can be found at CHIC² also.

The wall art behind the sofa can not be found at the birthday party. But with a little hunting you can get it for free: The Footprints of Buddha are the gift from Miss Buccaneer’s Restorations for the Silk Road Hunt 3.

The prefab comes from Designer Prims. The “Little Beach House” is – again – a wonderful open and well constructed house. What I really do love about the houses and skyboxes from Designer Prims is that the house is not “loud textured” – means: the house steps back behind every kind of furniture and decoration you put in. Nearly every furniture you can think of fits in their houses without appearing strange.
