To Grandma’s House We Go! (Verse 1)

Filed under: Designer Tribute,Freebie Love,Mix and Match — Candy Lemmon @ 4:30 pm

The Holidays are almost here, and Santa’s already leaving presents under the tree. I’ve been busy hunting and gathering all over the grid, but it’s always nice to take a little time out to spend a quiet cozy night with friends and family. This month we’re taking some time to appreciate Grandma, whose crazy vintage wardrobe always keeps us warm… and cool.

On my first trip to the store, I immediately started shopping for Van. He’s always up for rocking a nice floral, and the overall retro aesthetic is perfect for a stylish guy with a little charisma and individuality. Of course, there’s even more for the ladies, and all at prices ranging L$30-L$100! We took a little trip back to the scenic Tesh Garden Center for some holiday shopping, and stopped to take these shots of our favorite winter-weather options.

The striped blazer is the warmest menswear option available, which Van has paired here with the snappy plaid slacks. The layered floral button-down adds another subtle pattern, with a splashy pink bow-tie from a free Anubis Style outfit. I edited a Bare Rose scarf to drape around his shoulders for a little extra warmth, and he chose his favorite red Storm Schmooz shoes to match. He fell in love with Starley’s white hair textures back at the launch of the Quad, and it seems a perfect choice for shopping on a snowy day. Add a pair of black Paper Couture gloves to match, and he’s fit to chop down any virtual tree.

My look is usually a bit more colorful, and I’ve been loving pinks and lavender this season. I started with the maze shortcoat from Grandma, threw on a bright pair of Emery jeans, and tucked them into these fantastic knitted socks (probably my favorite buy from the store, and only 30 linden!). I bought every color of the ETD rain boots as soon as I heard about the L$35 sale, and the pink shade works great for this look. The blue Aoharu scarf and purple mittens matched perfectly and were no-brainers, and I decided to add a slew of fluffy white accessories to the mix. My ear-muffs were an advent gift from Sway’s Creations, the charm corsage is a Jetcity freebie, and the fluffy fur key-chain is a Love Soul Christmas gift from the Copain group. The cute braided hairdo is from TekuTeku, and my skin was (I believe) a past freebie from Di Chantilly; but I could no longer find the store in world.
