It is such an odd time of year for all the SALES that are going on…for me they will not really hit until after Christmas, because right now there will usually only be the enticing, spend your Christmas money with us, not our competitors…bargains.

One such SALE I went to the other night, had me kind of stunned at how quiet it was, but then again you can only own a whole store once, and so many have been die hard fans for so long, I was actually lucky in the fact that the items that were on sale were ones I didn’t have in all colours.

The Celestial Studios black friday sale, is actually on until the 4th as far as I know, and everything black is only 25L , so it was a bargain to pick up a few things I didn’t already have, and especially as I didn’t have the black version of all three of my favourite pairs of pants from there.

Anyways, moving on, I am showing mainly Beauty Avatar today, but I mixed everything up, to show the versatility of it all. I love mixing and matching, you wouldn’t know it to see me half the time, but that is rollover from constantly changing back to work clothes mid tp lol, it became a habit to not spend time to put together a proper ‘look’ to only be ripped back out of it.

I love the style of the pieces, they do make great backdrops for whole looks, as well as worn as they come. I really like the texture work, the actual style of and in some cases sheen. It isn’t always easy to put together a great fabric with a stylish concept, and these have gone hand in hand with eachother.

The other Beauty Avatar item I am wearing is the Daria skin, this skin is lip smackingly rawr worthy. Soft in all the right places, fit looking but without too much tone to the body shading. I really like the facial features on this skin, as well as the breathtaking lipstick and eyeshadows, but it truly is the high gloss of the lips that makes such an impression.

All the shoes that I am wearing are available at Footwear Expo 2009, there are only a few days left of this annual event, and as a percentage of money from each and every store there goes to help kids this Christmas, it really is worth it to take a look, and maybe pic up some shoes you may have wanted in the past, or something new.

Definitely make time to really explore Beauty Avatar, Whimsy and I helped a girl find a dress there last week or the week before, and you can really lose yourself in all the label has to offer. Take time also to check out the beautiful fountain in the courtyard between areas, it is a trunktacular creation.

Everything Old is New to someone, I always say it, have done forever now, have even seen it quoted in the past which made me happy. Recently I have been trying to go back and forth between my inventory, and I always check out the walls as much as I can in stores that have new releases, because you never know what you might have missed in a blink.

When I was working for Maitreya I was so happy to be able to revisit my MAiiKI, one of my favourite moments in the store, was showing three ladies upstairs to this incredible Collaberation Collection of Designers Maitreya and Dutch Touch.

The ladies were incredibly fun, and really passionate about their looks and style, but wanting to class it up than what they had been exposed to wearing in the past, these were fuller figured women, and they just adored how much MAiiKI enhanced and brought out what it was they loved about their shapes…that will always be one of my favourite days in the store. If I don’t get the people contact I wither and fade, and there is something so pleasing about helping people in second life.

One of the most standout features to the MAiiKI collection is the mix and match abilities, and when I first blogged the collection, I did a lot of that, this time I kept it as is, worn straight from inventory, it is actually from wearing these clothes that made me beg Onyx to do the Neyya pumps in a two tone toe/heel cap version, because the colour contrasts in the sets was too delish.

There is everything in this collection, incredible system skirts, sculpted skirts, gloves, collars, socks, half gloves, anklet cuffs, wrist cuffs, belts and amazing colours that work so well with the Maitreya Gold shoes as well. I was watching GREEK the other week and got so excited that one of the characters was wearing a dress just like the second picture, I even told Onyx lol, I was sitting there bouncing that she had on MAiiKI in a TV show.

While I was shooting the pics I ended up in Kala Bijoux’s IM box, she is the one of the creators behind Material Squirrel, it inspired the shot in green, how sexy does it look to have these wicked sculpted Demon wings with that dress on, to me it’s like the perfect Halloween look for those that don’t want to do over the top costumes, but want to do more of an evil temptress kind of look.

As you can see, using the HUD I was able to make them smaller and do all sorts of other things with them via it, so even if large expansive wings aren’t really you, the smaller just look adorably evil. You could of course always go with Fae wings or Angel, Material Squirrel has them all, and so beautiful.

I am also wearing the DUNe skin by Dutch Touch, it is giggle worthy how in sync those two are, Onyx and Iki , they often have same colours, names, ideas, it’s like they share a creative gene or something, but from both them and Beau of course, sprout such beautiful items.
