SALE at Dark Mouse Jewelry!

Hi there – I am having a sale at the store, I’ve marked down numerous sets of jewelry – a single set is now $50L, and the fullset or fatpack is $100L. This is a great opportunity to pick up some great pieces at bargain prices! All the sale items are in the small shop behind the main store, just walk out the back door of the store and you’ll find it along the path to your left. In addition to the sale, all my GATCHA items are now out in the store – there’s a winner everytime! Here’s a small sampling of pic of the items out for sale now! And as always, there’s some great stuff in the Lucky Chair, and the Wear & Win Vendor! Last but not least, all my new items from the Jewelry Fair are now out in the store and everything is posted on marketplace! Here’s a teleport directly to the Dark Mouse store.

Dark Mouse for Project Themeory

Hi! I’m participating in Project Themeory this week, and I hope you’ll stop by my shop and take a look. The theme was, “Oh Deer,” so I went with that and decided that a vintage enamel bracelet would be nice. This is sort of costume jewelry that you would find in a thrift store. There is a necklace or bracelets for only $75L. I hope you like! Here’s a teleport to the store, the special is out at the front door!

Rever en Blanc

I don’t really speak French. Actually I suck at it entirely, having learned after struggling thru 4 years of French in high school, that I don’t have an ear for languages. Which is sad really, because in my RL household, my hubby speaks 5 languages, and my kids each speak 3. Embarrassing, really! So I googled for an appropriate name for a whitish necklace, that seemed dreamy to me, and came up with Rever en Blanc, or Dream in White. So there you go, I too can use google! So while this post IS about another of my new sets, Rever en Blanc, it is also about white, and the color white. And wearing white on white, etc. I love white on white and specifically chose it because I wanted my necklace to stand out! That was my full intent with this outfit. I also wanted to show off a top I’ve had for a while and a bit from Kyoot, but have not had a chance to. This top comes with a ‘texture’ necklace of sorts. I liked that it combined with my necklace to give the illusion of a lot of stuff going on. I paired it with the ‘play pants’ from Sn@tch, which I like for the clingy feel and the line down the front. My boots are from gfield and actually have cool tops with feathers hanging from them, but since that didn’t work with the cuffs for the pants, they had to go. The boots are black, because well I tried every white boot I own, but it didn’t work. Sometimes it just doesn’t. Btw, the boots are so well made, that if you don’t get your butt to gfield asap, you’re insane!

The new set is out at the Jewelry Fair and will also be available in my store, shortly. As for the rest of the outfit – well, the hair is a long and luscious style from Elikatira, and the skin is from Pink Fuel, a skin I find delightful because of the wide eyed, rosy cheeked look it lends my avatar. I decided I looked ENTIRELY too innocent for this shot, and put red glam lipstick on to counteract it! Also, ignore hand slightly in boob shot, okay? 😉 Check out ALL my new releases at the fair in this post.

Dark Mouse at Jewelry Fair 2011!

YAY! Finally – it’s Jewelry Fair time! I have several new releases all of them available at the fair. I also have several items set out in my booth for which 50% of the profits will go to OXFAM International the charity chosen by the organizers of the show. Last but not least, there’s a little gift on the table in my booth – FREE – just for visiting. I hope you do. Here’s a landmark to my booth at the show.

Dark Mouse for the Witch Hunt

I’m in the Witch Hunt which starts on September 15 (midnight tonight)! If you teleport to the Dark Mouse main store, you can gander around for a Witch hat, and if you click on the hat (when you find it!) you will get a lovely little prize from me! The hunt item is $10L. I hope you enjoy, and here’s a pic of my entry for the Witch Hunt!

Just rolling along here, somehow.

So, back on the blogging trail…So this outfit combines a bunch of ideas that comprise my favorite things. I love nude/beiges/ecru colors. So I’m naturally drawn to them. I also like anything that has a Boho flair, so this new top from League naturally caught my eye. It also has the kind of neckline that begs for a necklace, so cha-ching, it’s mine. The only thing I don’t like about this top is that it’s probably a wee bit TOO revealing but this is SL so, well, I’m going with it. Besides it does provide a showcase for another new release of mine, the Vintage Pearls on Velvet necklace. The ‘idea’ of this necklace is that I found the pendant in a thrift shop and decided to hang it on a velvet cord I had hanging about. You’ll find this necklace in my booth at the Jewelry Fair, which will open on the 16th of September.

The jeans are the latest bit of perfection from Zaara – I saw these on plurk and knew that I would get them, but just picked them up today. But in particular, I chose this color and shade because it reminds me of a new pair of jeans that need to be worn a bit. I’ll probably wear the hell outta these jeans, I like to have a pair I just toss on for building an what not. The shoes are from G Field. Lovely, chunky, high heels, rather trendy in nude again. These are really well made/well priced, and if you’re a stubborn frankenfoot hater like me, you’ll love them.

The bag is a wondrous snag from an FLF of long ago, and it’s been sitting in my inventory forever. I thought it provided a nice counterpoint for all the beige. Please don’t think that the bag moves with me though, I moved it strategically for almost every picture I took. There is a animated bag in the package though.

Finally, the skin is a personal favorite of mine, Blessa from Tres Blah. I like this skin for a variety of reasons, not least of which is that I don’t look like perfect in it. It just feels soft to me. The hair is from Shag, and the movement of the hair should be witnessed. While the hair looks great in a picture, it’s also very wearable.

Crystal Gazing and Whirling Dervishes

“I have been crystal-gazing, Headmaster,’ said Professor Trelawney, in her mistiest, most faraway voice, ‘and to my astonishment, I saw myself abandoning my solitary luncheon and coming to join you. Who am I to refuse the prompting of fate?” And on that note, I found myself feeling the need to blog, and who am I to refuse the promptings of fate?! I’ve been working on my releases for Jewelry Fair (only a few days away) and liked what I was wearing, and embellished a bit. I have been astonished by the creativity and skill I’m witnessing of late, and frankly a wee bit overwhelmed! There is that constant need to ‘keep-up’ as it were. So rather than worry about it, I started playing. I saw the dress that I’m wearing in a weekly event, and went looking for it after the fact. I’m not certain ‘why’ I like this dress. It may be the oh so delicate color and shading that I like. I paired it with a salmon colored sweater from Jane, oh she of the amazing mesh skills. This sweater is not mesh, but with its elongated sleeve, it feels retro modern to me. It also works well with the dress. The amazing bag from FIR & MNA is just big and carries all my virtual stuff (and was an incredible FLF bargain). I need this bag in RL actually. I decided to keep my legs bare – we are after all in that twilight time between summer and the dream of fall, so the day is warm, but I need a sweater (let’s pretend I’m in California…). The basics here – the skin is the new Jewel from Curio and the brows on this skin are well, perfect. They are heavy without being well, heavy. My hair is from Exile, and while I’ve been snapping up the hair on display at the Dressing Room sales, I have not been to the store in a while, and I found this breezy style in the new section. Look at the flyaway hair! Because I’m an oldbie, and well stubborn as the day is long, I’m wearing shoes without feet, and they are the Candy Clogs from Shiny Things. The jewelry is my own (ahem), the Whirling Dervish set – you’ll find this set at Jewelry Fair in just a few days – exclusively. The poses for this post are from Olive Juice. For me the whole look is a refusal to believe that summer is over, and yet it is. Full outfit credits below.
