For the Frugalistas

Creator Emychan Aichi reached out to me about her CandyMetal store recently + guess what? She generously offered to assemble some pieces I liked together in a $1L gift for us! *mwuahs Emychan Aichi*
The russet-yellow streaks of this fiery-orange miniskirt instantly caught my eye; a simple dark blue-gray shirt on top provided a dark contrast to really let these striking colors pop. A treacherous "spike" belt (it's mod, yay!) added a fun + random touch (you get another belt with headphones included in the gift too).

Here's a closer look at this skirt; check out the mini flames detail across the front. Le kyoot.
I wanted some tall boots to set off this look + I must say that I fell in lurves with the free riding boots by Nova that my good friend Linda Mensing recently blogged on her wonderful blog here. *mwuahs Linda Mensing* The muted black satin finish lends an elegant feel to this classic long boot; the single ankle loop + rounded toe shape is nice too.
Gavin's black button-down shirt is also by CandyMetal (this was his pick, which Emychan has also graciously set out for $1L). -- Gavin doesn't usually rock the "deep V-neck" look, but this wrinkled 3/4-sleeve shirt, paired with Gavin's fave Aoharu vintage denim, exuded a sexy, casual cool men's look. (There's also a more fitted pair of jeans included in the $1L gift too).
Gavin's accessory of choice here? Mouth condoms! This is 1 of several fun dollarbies at CandyMetal (there's a whole wall in back). There's various shiny "latex leggings" up for $1L grabs too (I never owned any so-called "liquid leggings" during that whole '80s fashion throwback in RL, but the black in particular reminded me of those). This $1L mouth condom, tagged saucily with the word "LOVE" in bright, colorful packaging, is 'specially for all you frisky avis. Safety first!
A huge *muwahs* to Emychan for setting out such lovely gifts for all us frugalistas. Love + fashionista kisses to all!
