New Year Fever with COCO

Ive still got New Year fever, eating my minced pies and being merry! I still feel like it is Christmas and by the end of the post you may  agree with me :P

COCO is one of my all time favourite brands. I have quite a few maybe 25 all time favourite brands but they have varying reasons. For COCO it is the fact their designs are stylish, elegant, up to date and the textures look so real! Their older designs including the infamous Tulip Dress (top Polaroid) and sexy Combinaison Outfit (the unzipped white jumpsuit) are still gold in my books. "Old is gold" has never been more true! The Ruffle jacket is amongst my favourites in the "couture" category becuase it is very detailed, the ruffles are very nice and is an item of clothing that could never go out of style in my opinion :)
 COCO always thinks about their group members! One of the only designers (as far as i can recall) that works hard for their designs but ALSO produces some wonderfully stylish high grade gifts for all her loyal customers.
This is one of the latest group gifts, a beautiful Shirt Dress that is both stylish and MESH! It is rigged so it will move with you and with textures like these you will want them to move with you :)
I have also worn a previous group gift, Suede Boots which come in two variations with and without fur. They are rigged MESH and unrigged MESH so you decide how you want to wear these beauties.
 Another offering from COCO is the cashmere touch Turtleneck Sweater. Click on the image to see it larger. The sweater has a ribbed bottom edge which finished the sweater nicely but the skirt covers it up. Still cute, the Maitreya Pencil Skirt is a VIP group gift still available at their main store between clothing and footwear departments. One of the best pencil skirts i have ever seen. It is both slender, fitted and MESH!
I must not forget the wonderful Christmas Gift from Poetic Colours, Christmas Pearl Eyes. They come in a variety of sizes and either "bright or dark" eyes for that perfect look. Thank you! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too! <3 p="p">
 Going a bit off topic... Miel have made an amazing jewelry set JUST FOR YOU. Simply go to their store and click their subscribo to get their updates (click no#9 for the jewelry). The jewelry looks like it may vanish very soon! Quickly go get it :) The necklace and earrings are bohemian looking with an array of ethnic looking shiny beads tied together with pieces of cord. It looks gorgeous! Miel has never disappointed me <3 p="p">
I wore these lovely earrings with my COCO Turtleneck and with a couple of the older outfits. These seem to go with everything! They are colourchange in menu so its 7 in 1.
The final group gift from COCO is the Tuxedo Dress which is both a Tuxedo and a glitzy sequin mini dress in 1. Looks very sexy and stylish as it is but can be teamed up with accessories for an even more stylish look. The Tuxedo Dress is amongst my favourites from COCO probably becuase i am a sucker for any outfit that includes a sexy blazer. I thought I would wear my Christmas Gift Morantique LUSH Era pearl necklace with this outfit as well as a pair of heels from Mstyle called Rivea.
Although I did just mention the Rivea pumps from Mstyle, the Goshi pumps are the ones i really wanted to introduce to you all! The fit is lovely, the textures are crisp and the amount of colours you can get them in is insane! I wore these pumps with my Turtleneck Sweater outfit further up!
Want to know a secret?... These heels are currently 50% off, they are on SALE!
Last but not least (not COCO related but is super cute!) is the Tutys handbag puppy holder! It is super cute, I can not believe how many times i have said "awww" to this accessory. You simply need one of these. He is FREE on Marketplace so you can give this little puppy a home NOW!

Cocoro is a lovely designer. Her work is lovely, her personality is amazing and finding designers that are both sweet and great at creating is rare. There are many designers that are sweet and fabulous that I enjoy speaking to & love to bits. Cocoro is just one of those amazing people on my list :)
Merry late Christmas and Happy New Year <3 br="br"> Michi xoxo
Ps: I always encourage people to buy something if they love a designer's work. If you love COCO as much as I do then go buy yourself something nice to support her designs. All designers appreciate the support they can get from their customers :)  Its our way of saying "we love your work, keep doing what you do!".

Start 2013 with a BANG!

Today I am opening my christmas presents late... Yup, how can Michi possibly forget to open up her presents! Insanity! Ive decided I will open them up with you all and share my new goodies + some wonderful frees - Gotta catch em all!
A close friend of mine had given me an assortment of gorgeous pearl necklaces from Morantique. Already had a set (which i wore when opening the gifts - ref my crazy reaction shot lol) from Morantique which i love a lot... But there are brothers and sisters to thiswonderful piece!
All of these necklaces are available at the Morantique LUSH store - My favourites are the Gardenia and the Era.
 G Field have some wonderful RIGGED MESH winter dresses available at their store! Fabulously free and gorgeous! Easy to dress up into something very girly and cute or dress down into something more trendy. I love my Docs so i decided to team them up with this dress.
 These are some amazing boots which are a staple for anyone in SL. Yes Mesh is the new black in terms of fashion however I still like my sculpties becuase... We became fashionable with them so shunning them becuase their more attractive sibling has come over is unthinkable. But that is my opinion :)
Gos is a great fashion brand retailing accessories, footwear and much more (i believe they do furniture!). I spoke to the owner a while back and he told me the method of doing it all, each prim piece is twice baked (kinda like scrumptious cookies right? so cool!). Plus simply zooming in on these babies pretty much speaks for itself, they are very detailed, look real and when i stare too long i almost try to grab them from my screen!
 These boots are available in 9 basic shades however, like everything at Gos you can buy colour packs for additional fashion fun! I purchased every single colour add on so i can really customise. Each pair of Docs from Gos come with a funky menu so you can change the individual textures and the style (ref number pics, 1 = pristine, 2 = abused and 3 = loose). I normally go for Loose becuase it looks really relaxed and sexy with a pair of jeans or skirt/dress.
 Say hello (and goodbye if i am too late... sorry guys!) to the christmas and new years gift from Lelutka. Many may be seen running around in this hair, it indeed is a lovely piece from the Lelutka girls. They never fail to amaze me. This hair is very long and sexy and like most things can be "dressed up" for an elegent look or "dressed down" for a sexy maybe sultry look. The decision is all yours! Join the Lelutka group and grab this hair in the Hair Department of the sim, click the Tree and the Boxes.
 3 NEW Happy New Year gift hairs by Exile. I have worn them all in "Bleach" which is a colour I like quite a lot for its multitonal colour. Its a nice natural bleached blonde. All of these hairstyles are wonderful however my heart sways closer to Betty and Violetta. Rayanne is a funky style with its pretty braid coming down the side but its very different (different can be cute though! I shall give it a test drive).
Very nice of Exile's owner Kavar to give us these beautiful hairstyles as a gift. Its a nice thoughtful gift perfect for the season and available in an array of colours. Dont like blonde? Maybe black? Blue? Silver?... List goes on :P
THANK YOU Kavar <3>
Lastly we have this sexy number by ISON. Rigged Mesh again, absolutely free at their store (just join the Avenue Magazine Readers group and click the vendor - she is all yours!). You can instantly achieve Beyonce style curves at a click! Furthermore ISON's clothing as far as I am aware is MODIFY, that means I can recolour to my heart's content to get that perfect shade of blue, purple, green etc.

Michi xoxo
