I'm feeling very Joan today

****Update: There is a freebie gift hunt going on RIGHT NOW, but only until Nov.23rd*****

Mad men may be on hiatus, but I'm channeling Joan in my fabu freebie outfits from Ingenue's store on Lo Lo. The pink hawaiian halter dress and silver hollywood dress (worn two ways!) are on the freebie board along with a couple of other things. The purple dress with the sash is a group gift. You can join the group by clicking the board right next to the dress.

Haute Style & Co.

I love Haute Style & Company. They have a very sophisticated style and beautiful textures. In the top photos are the front and back of their monthly freebie.

On Bryanna at left is a gown from the lucky chair. Sherpa models yet another lucky chair find. The lucky chairs change every 10 minutes and there are other items not shown here.

Pumpkin Hunt

Sorry I've been MIA folks. Life is what happens when you are making other plans. So there is a grid wide pumpkin hunt going on right now. I have only had time to hit Ivalde so far. It ends on November 2nd, so rush out. There are five pumpkins. These are just a few of the ones I found. I love the way Nef rocks the system skirt. I know a lot of people don't like them because they make your butt look big, but I think it's sexy. I like to think I've got a litte Joan from Mad Men going on. All of the dresses are from Ivalde pumpkins and so is the butterfly skin.

Nefaria of Ivalde is such a generous designer. Not only is she a genius with textures she is always giving things away. I have loved every item I have ever put on from this store.

The way the hunt works is that one of the pumpkins you find will give you a landmark another store on the grid. There are signs in each store that give you the option to stop searching and receive a landmark directly to the next place. That may be handy since the hunt is almost over.

***update: Nefaria Abel is taking some time off for carpel tunnel. Ivalde will continue to be open while she recovers. I urge everyone to shop, shop, shop at Ivalde and support this generous designer's store while she takes care of herself***
