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***
