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.
