What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?

What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?

When the bells all ring and the horns all blow
And the couples we know are fondly kissing.
Will I be with you or will I be among the missing?

Maybe it’s much too early in the game
Ooh, but I thought I’d ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year’s
New Year’s eve?

Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight
When it’s exactly twelve o’clock that night
Welcoming in the New Year
New Year’s eve

Maybe I’m crazy to suppose
I’d ever be the one you chose
Out of a thousand invitations
You received

Ooh, but in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advance:
What are you doing New Year’s
New Year’s Eve?

~ “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” by Ella Fitzgerald

What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?

Wow, I love this song. I love Ella’s voice and the longing. I am not sure what you are doing New Year’s Eve, but I am going to be dressing up and enjoying champagne, date or not. I chose this sparkly look from Polyester Partridge that she is featuring at Uber. (I forewent the sash.) The mesh itself is basic but the texture is fabulous, which is why I loved it. The price was a winner too! I accessorized with pearls from Sigifaust for Shiny Shabby and AvaGardner Kungler’s gorgeous earrings for Shiny Shabby that I show up close.

The show stopper of this look is, of course, pepehair’s gorgeous new skin for Shiny Shabby, an applier for the Catwa Annie mesh head that is absolutely amazing. Coupled with the applier for the Maitreya body, it’s a stunning look that is showing up on blogs and in photos all over the grid. She has created liners, shadows and lipsticks for the skin as well, but I chose to tint with the colors on Catwa’s HUD. Miu Edman’s pretty updo for Uber adds a simple elegance to my look.

I heard it’s going to be a snowpoclypse in the Northeastern US today, so I predict a baby boom in about 38-40 weeks in the same region. I personally prefer white in my fashion and not on my driveway. And this white dress from pepehair from the Trend3 event is a stunner. I have purchased from Pepe before and gotten a little burned by their mesh because this designer is clearly still getting up to speed on designing so I was hesitant this time but this dress fits beautifully. The mesh is rigged wonderfully and looks fabulous on. My biggest problem was getting my butt small enough to fit under the dress (do not wear with the Maitreya mesh body—it simply won’t work). I wedged the Belleza body in much more easily.

I purchased the shoes from MzEvieNoir at the Trend3 event also and while I love the style and look, they were pretty pricey for shoes that just come available for Slink feet. She does offer them in the package with separate ones for plain heel with gold or silver hardware or gold or silver heel. I hope MsNoir sees fit to lower her prices in the future because I would be amenable to buying more if she lowered her price, made versions for the Belleza and Maitreya feet and considered a texture change HUD.

Shyla Diggs has come out with a new set of skins for the celestial theme at Uber. They all have fantastic make ups that tend to pull the eyes together visually, so if your avatar has wider eyes, this might be the set for you. She also includes a full compliment of lipsticks and blush with the fatpack. My hair is one of Catwa Clips smooth and sexy mesh ‘dos, a sleek look to accompany this great dress. And my jewelry was a recent release from AvaGardner Kungler who is secretly yearning to be a jewelry maker. When I look at her pieces, I see the care with which a craftswoman selected the stones, positioned the findings, twisted the wire into place. Every piece she makes is an amazing mesh work at a minute scale and a piece of art. You might have to get a shovel out for the snow but not for this.
