I know I have said this before, but it just bears repeating; I am downright in love with this skin. She's pretty by any standard, but she's especially hipster-pretty.

All of my poses come from Label Motion's exclusive offerings for the Pose Fair! Label Motion is one of my favorite pose stores, along with PDA. Thus, I was ecstatic to spend some quality time with the pose stands at Label Motion's corner of the Fair. I even bought some group poses, for which I usually have no need. You see? Label Motion does all sorts of things to me.

Here, I was standing at the lovely mainstore of Izzie's. I was purchasing something there and just decided, "Heck, why not?"

NAILS: Drop Dead Red Manicure (*Sexy Mamas*)

Here's a closeup of one of the skins that I bought on my recent skin craze:

 Isn't she lovely? 

Now, I'm going to tell you something that will stop your heart and turn you GREEN with envy. I got this skin for only 450L! dUTCH tOUCH was having a wonderful sale a few weeks ago. I'm sure it's over now, but I did take advantage of it when it was current!
The Amber skin comes with 15 versions of the skin, eyelashes (in both tattoo layer and prim form), 12 hairbases, an eyebrow shaper, and pubic hair (on underwear, pants, and tattoo layers). 
Amber is very elegant, I'd say. I wear her here because I did promise to show yet another of the skins that I obtained on my frenzied hunt for dark skins. However, I think the sophistication of her face calls for equally sophisticated attire, flowing gowns and such.

I purchased the Marie hair some time ago from fri.day. It's such a cute style, AND the flower offers nine different color options! It looks good, but looking good is never enough to fit a particular theme when composing an outfit. Finally! I love it with this outfit and with this environment. The latter is provided, by the way, by the Eternal Shores Beach Hangout.

Cassandra is a lovely skin, I must say. Izzie hardly disappoints.

I love freckles and wish I had them in RL. However, I get to live vicariously through Inferna and because of Izzie's Cassandra! Here's another thing I really appreciate about Izzie's; considering what you receive in the box when you purchase the skin, Ms. Button's creations are a steal!

I LOVE the skin I used in the previous entry. That skin is called "Love" by Illusory. I downright love it. However, it costed 1,000L, and the package includes four versions of the skin (DB Teeth and No-Teeth and LB Teeth and No-Teeth. I say "DB" and "LB" because, honestly, I have no idea what the difference is. I'm sure it's light and dark something, but I really don't know!), 30 lipsticks (15 with teeth and 15 without), a freckles tattoo and four eyebrow shapers. That's not bad at all! But then, here is what comes in Cassandra's package: eight skins (again, DB and LB versions of Cassandra with cleavage and freckles and both), nine lipsticks, 10 eyeshadows, one eyebrow shaper, a matching nail base, and (GET THIS) a modifiable shape! And I got all of this for 990L! It's just 10 lindens less than the Love skin, but I feel like you get so much more (though, again, you get a lot with the Love skin).

The Miel boots: As I've stated before, I know Miel for the brand's options to customers. The Dandy boots are very detailed, and you can change the color of the sole, leather, and the trim individually! There are five different colors available for each! I've been a SLer for about 1.5 years, and I'm pretty sure I've had these boots for about a year. They were one of my earliest and best purchases! Get 'em!

You've seen my previous posts, yeah? You must know, then, how absolutely IN LOVE I am with this skin.

I stood in front of the vendor art for this skin, debating dropping 1K for it. I said, "No" then "Yes" at least five times each, but in the end, the skin overtook me, I tell you! 

It comes with two versions of 15 lipsticks, with teeth and without teeth.  These 15 lipsticks are, in turn, divided into five folders. Of course, the whole set is boxed inside of the skin's folder. It's a whole lotta unpacking, but do you SEE the skin? It's well worth the dragging-and-dropping.

I absolutely didn't mean for Inferna's eyes to be closed in one of these shots, but I actually like the way it turned out. Do you?

I bought three other skins with which I am also infatuated. And I've asked two designers - League and The Skinnery - if they'd be so kind as to create the Jen and Sabal skins, respectively, in darker tones. I'd love to have them, but they are a bit light for my tastes.

Also, I'm not sure about Plausible Body. I got these shoes (for really cheap) when I first joined SL, so I'm not even sure if they are still around. I'll check now, actually, to sate my own curiosity. 

A demain!
