Out with the OLD…..In with the NEW ♥

A real decision is measured by the fact that you’ve taken a new action. If there’s no action, you haven’t truly decided.

Tony Robbins

For my first post of 2012, I wanted something explosive, FIVE LOOKS symbolizing new flair, a new direction and newness all around ~ saying goodbye to yesterday and HELLO to a new day. And how could we not enter 2012 without new styles (and new hair colors!!!!) from ICONIC Couture? Of course!!! The lovely and generous Neveah Niu has graced us with four NEW styles and a HOT group giftie in a whole new brand of sexy shades!!! Also featured in this entry are styles from the outgoing high-end brand OSAKKI, which sadly saw its end in early 2012, and a couple of NEW items from The Dressing Room and Tropicalia Bazaar – a NEW wave in high-end fashion shopping – designer brands for LESS. Both of these discounted locations update their inventory at least every few weeks, so it’s best to KEEP these landmarks handy. Nothing is more than 100L. ENJOY. ❤ (New releases are now in bold)

Also, I’ve had a couple of fun things happen in my lovely SL. I got married / and I’ve been teaching myself GIMP, so you’ll see better visual quality photos. Yes, I’m always a promoter of raw pics, though I saw how GIMP could improve the visual quality of my raw SL pics, so no overly done graphics for my blog – just sharper, crisper shots. As always, my shape/skin varies according to how I feel the outfit is best styled. You can click on the pic for a closer look.

I hope you like it. Feedback welcome.
