Time to play Catch Up!

Ok I"ve been a TOTAL slackerpants about the blog this month but Christmas preparations and the Happy Holiday Gift hunt kept me pretty darn busy. I hope you all had a totally faboo christmas and enjoyed all the gifts in the store! (those are still out by the way until December 31st as well as the Christmas theme clothing so grab 'em while you still can).

In this post I will attempt ot give a rundown of all the new outfits that came out in December. So.... use the bathroom, grab a snack and refill your water glass then settle down in your chair, we gonna be here awhile.

OK. First on the list is the outfit pictured at the top of this post and my latest release, Shiva! This is the first design in my new Goddess line (thanks again Maia for the idea!) I love creating fantasy clothing and i'm excited to do more of it in 2007. More men's stuff too ...err.. but i'm digressing.

Shiva is a 32 piece superset with tons of wear options and a matching cloak that is sold separately. I'm offering it in 8 colors with no plans for more but I'm always open to suggestions. To me this outfit says I'm strong, I'm sexy and mess with me and I'll give you a whole world of hurt. It could also be worn as a slave silk but the cuffs on wrists and ankles include broken chains so in my book this girl can't be tied down! hehe ^_~

I put a ton of work and a ton of detail into this one and it is more prim heavy in design than Buttafly. Accessories TO THE MAX!, six (6) prim skirt variations, and nude, sheer, modest (if you can call it modest!) versions of the clothes pieces. I hope you love it as much as I do. The box pics really don't do it justice. I've seen a couple of you throw on the Legacy boots with this outfit to stunning affect. Wow! Talk about strong and sexy. Rawr!

Next up are the Happy Holiday Gifts. There are 14 in all but are labeled 1 through 12 for the 12 days of Christmas. Gift #12 came in 3 boxes, 1 of 3, 2 of 3, and 3 of 3. These will be out until December 31st as mentioned earlier and are in the center of the store tumbling out of Santa's big red bag. It's hard to miss all the pink and white gifts so save them before they all tumble into the pond! I'm not posting a pic for this as I think it's pretty self explanatory when you get to the store.

Another 1L freebie release in the store til December 31st is the @home Entertainment Holiday Sweat Set. It's unisex and comes with a fun lil Santa hat. I love getting nightlife to model for me, he really knows how to work the camera, sexy man that he is. Woot! Anyway, before I get derailed... here's a pic!

Two days ago I also released a design for the @home Sportswear line that I am very proud of. It's a hoodie with a reworked @home Entertainment Logo that I REALLY love. These are great for dressing down and you can wear them with or without the hood. The hood features FLEX! ties and move a little when you do. It has a black stripe on the side and on the inside of the sleeves for those who like to be stylish even when they are going casual ^_~. Right now we are offering them in 8 colors but I may add more, we'll see.

It was a fun design to make and started out as a Christmas present for nightlife. Then we thought, hmmmm, these would be fun to share so we added them to the @home sportswear line so now you can wear them too! Here are a couple of pics:

I have one more design for the @home Sportswear line that is brand new and will cost only 1L. It is a 2007 New Year hoodie and comes in your choice of Light Gray or Dark Gray. I couldn't resist adding the fireworks over the New York skyline as a background. Here's wishing you a Happy and Safe New year!

Tequila Sweater Set in Black

After numerous requests I've finally done the Sweater Set in Black and as you can see it looks faboo. Ok ok yes you were right, it NEEDED to be done in black. =p It's got the same flex lace ruffles on the bodice as the others as well as the cuffs and arm ruffles. Lots of sexy sheer lace on the babydoll and mini skirt. All the great attention to detail as the previous versions. This outfit is so feminine, soft and sexy I absolutely LOVE it. I like to wear the single layer lace babydoll with no shoes and long messy hair for that sexy almost dressed up but got waylaid in the bedroom look. Yeah baby yeah! Enjoy!

Important Info on the Happy Holiday Gifts

There will only be TWO Happy Holiday Gift boxes in the store at any time. Happy Holiday Gift #1 has been whisked out of the store in the middle of the night and only Happy Holiday Gift #2 and #3 are in the store as I post this.

When Happy Holiday Gift #4 drops into the store, Gift #2 will be whisked away so that only Gift #3 and #4 remain. Each time a new Happy Holiday Gift is introduced I will remove the oldest remaining gift. I will be dropping these gifts in the store randomly throughout the month until Christmas Day, 12/25/06.

I hope you all are enjoying this Gift Hunt as much as I am!

Happy Hunting and look for Gift #4 to drop very soon. If you haven't grabbed #2 yet... better get busy hunting before it disappears!

Herding Cats

I'm addicted to colors. I confess. But this time my gal pal, G, instigated the whole thing by asking for blue. She always asks for blue. I'm addicted to colors, she's addicted to this deep dark blue. One day we may go to Colors Anonymous and get this color thing under control but not today.. no.. not today. Ok, I feel better.

Today I called eight of my Solange! Models to come help me show off the new colors. I absolutely LOVE this picture of them. From left to right it is River Kyomoon, Mina Pixie, Taylor Meness, Annie Bowie, Vivian Rail, Jasmine Hayes, Loreli Gilmour and Haifeng Chu. What I love the most about it is it's diversity. Like the colors of the outfits themselves, these girls all shine in their own beautiful way. I have to smile every time I look at it. Thanks ladies! You were faboo even if it did feel like I was trying to herding cats getting you to line up and stay put. Haha! =P

So the new release is Santa's Lil Ho in 8 colors for 600L each... or...if you are addicted to colors like me you can get Santa's Lil Hottie Pack which has all 8 colors for 3000L and save yourself about 1800L. Quite a deal!

Oh and one last thing.. Happy Holidays Gift #3 is in the store and waiting for you to find it!

Happy Holidays!!!

I love December. I really do! It's just a really fun month! The world seems to get this aura of joy and love and for just a little while people are kind to each other. More forgiving. More loving. More caring. If only it lasted all year round ... Ah well, I"ll take what I can get!

And speaking of fun, I'll be dropping Happy Holiday Gift boxes in the store every day or so until December 25. These are tiny little hidden-in-plain-sight gift boxes with gifts from me to you inside. It's just for fun so I hope you enjoy the treasure hunts. Don't confuse them with the big gift wrapped boxes I have out. These are little and look like the box in the picture but small small small!

So far there are TWO Happy Holiday Gift boxes already hidden in the store with more to come as the days go by. These can be hidden ANYWHERE in the store so look high and low and under and over.

Happy Hunting! <3
