Waiting is Not a Cyn ;-)

It is said that good things come to those who wait. My patience is fickle when it comes to fashion and waiting for content creators to release items I actually wish to purchase. Even moreso when I had a slower computer (RIP Marge) that took forever to rez.  As a result, I've often written off stores that when I rez, I see stuff that while hot for others, doesn't necessarily fit my personality or fashion mood.

For example... Cynful clothing.  I've watched people fall all over themselves to get to Cynful because once a month, they usually put out a L$1 group item, which pulls some in to buy just that, while others buy additional items as a result. My love affair with Cynful was touch and go.  It may be that I'm a bit of a fashion prude, but I have always believed that while it's okay to occasionally let your bottom hang out or the top of it be revealed, not every skirt has to be a micro mini revealing all of your goodies, nor does every pair of pants have to be super-ultra low cut for it to be sexy.

Please understand, I'm not knocking Cynful.  Because they make some HOT clothes!  There are a lot of stores that do this.  Which is why I don't shop at most of them (LOL). It is truly a matter of taking time and looking, which prior to me getting the new puter (aptly named the CT2000 aka "BAMF" for our Dane Cook fans out there) was a massive battle of patience against old graphics card and LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAG. As a result, my personal preferences often led me to shop elsewhere, writing off this store and its fashions because every time I saw a new release, my bits were damn near hanging out of everything.

Well, yesterday morning I was looking for something a little revealing, but cute and figured, "eh, why not.  I haven't been since I got my CT2000, so let's give it a whirl. I land and it rezzes and HOLY NEW STORE DESIGN BATMAN!! It's gooooooooooooorgeous! *drooool*.  I spied this picture with a message reading "more coming in the fall (paraphrasing)" when I first landed. It wasn't what I was looking for when I decided to go shopping yesterday morning, but it was too cute to pass up.

This outfit, simply labeled "Cynful Special item/outfit (? - I'm not inworld...)" was only L$1 and blended my love for high-waist pants/capris/skirts with a short-sleeved cowlneck and matching shoes!! Score one for patience!!! I bought it and put it on and squeed!  I LOVE the texture work on this wonderful little teaser as well as the cuteness of it overall.  The cuffs didn't initially fit my thighs. Luckily, Cynful and gang thought ahead and made the cuffs modifiable so I could stretch to fit to my liking (who needs a resize script when you have copyable, modifiable prims!! YAY!!).

Happy with this purchase, I kept floating about the store, looking at Cynful with new 'puter and new eyes, eagerly looking to see whatall I missed.  Looking at all the stuff that covers your bottom, I went down my list of inventoried items and said, "check, check, oooh...no wait, check" and so on, then saw this nifty little number just hanging there...calling me. It said, "Kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiilo...I know you waaaaaaaaaaant me....come get it girl ;-)".  So I did and BINGO! I bought it. This awesome bodysuit from Cynful has two options: one with the sleeves and one without.  Comes in various colors and while my computer was a little slow to rezz (thus shoddy looking primwork on the legs), it's actually well made and the linen-like texture on the outfit made it look and feel uber relaxed.

The lack of fabric on the sides made for a revealing number, while still sporting a bit of cover-up for those that can on occasion be a little shy with their bodies (yeah yeah yeah...this is just sl/it's just pixels...doesn't mean I have to dress like a hooker, leaving my cash and prizes (wow...I really need to stop listening to Dane Cook) for everyone's perusal. It's just not my personality. I reveal when needed...like working or for my mate :P). The back is out and the pant portion is a little low, but not so much that you can experience plumber's crack *shudders*.  Mission accomplished? Aye...mission accomplished.

After my purchases, I went walking around the grid and stopped off for a lil bit to meditate at the Love Foundation, thinking about the good things that have come my way of late and how blessed I truly am with good friends, great family and more, then went home to chatter with one of my besties, Nicco (OMG can somebody say Hot dude?!? Back off ladies, he's VERY taken by one of my other besties *big smile*).  Between meditating and our talk, which funny enough, addressed waiting on a completely different and more important topic, I found it kind of funny that my morning completely revolved around waiting, wanting, having patience and then peace with the decision(s) to wait for things to come your way.  I waited for a new computer in order to continue with my DJing since Marge, my old computer died. What I received as a result was new discoveries of gorgeous places like the Love Foundation's meditation spot, new fashions on a gorgeous sim (thanks Cynful and gang!) and appreciation for the details (and people/places/friends/blessings) you miss when you don't want to wait for good (and great) things to come your way.  Amazing what that patience concept brings, huh?

Now if only Cynful would hurry up and release the fall line dagummit!! I got clothes to buy!! LOL

This blog is a project that was birthed out of three sisters and friends wanting to do something together that we could all enjoy and share.

The contributors of Shop*gasm are consumers. We like to shop. Correction...we LOVE to shop. For the most part, we blog our purchases. Maybe not every single one, but definitely something we find noteworthy.

On the off chance we're given items for review, we're thankful. But like other blog sites, we can not guarantee that your item will be blogged, nor will we guarantee that our review of items are always going to be favorable. What we will guarantee is an open and honest blog for you to read, with just enough moxie and personality to make you either hate it or love it. LOL

Hopefully you'll find the blog just as fun and awesome as we have in creating it :)
