Like a crow chasing a butterfly

When I start to but an outfit together for a blog post, I've usually been inspired by something, a picture, a tv show, a random idea or in this case one particular product.  I was at LoQ a few days again and Gia had released this fabulous hair as a new group gift, it was drool at first sight... and the rest pretty much fell into place.

With some much newness getting around and fabulous stores opening you may have missed the sad news that we are about to lose another store from this wacky world of ours.  Di's Opera will be closing it's doors later this week, so you do have one last chance to get there and snag, what is in my opinion, some of the best poses available.

Glad you came

Fishy Strawberry have finally released some more mesh items and I couldn't be more thrilled about it!  FS is a store I've always liked, but haven't shopped there heavily for some time, you see their sizing was always very odd against my shape, which meant I had to modify (often far beyond my patience level) prims to get them to fit, this of course allllll changes when you come to mesh clothes and especially mesh clothes that adopt the standard sizing (best idea ever!).  So with that I very quickly bundled myself off to Fishy Strawberry today and had an absolute field day with the new releases, one of which is this gorgeous sweater I'm wearing.  You can see all new releases (some of which are not mesh) at the main store.

52 Weeks of Colour - Champange

Luna Jubilee's 52 Weeks of Colour challenge is back for another round and i'm rather excited about it.  You see, I attempted this challenge last year, but due to various real life interuptions I didn't even make it half way, so I was more than pleased to be given a second shot at bringing a little more colour into my life.

The colour for week one is Champange, the perfect colour to bring in the New Year don't you think?
