Christmas Expo 2013 | Lounge Around

RFL Christmas Expo 2013 (texture by Texworks)5 more days for the Christmas Expo 2013 and still tons of shops to check out.  This past Tuesday night was the Victoria’s  Secret Fashion Show which has inspired this blog post today.  I always watch, not because I have a need or desire to walk a runway almost nakies (as Kali say) but because I LOVE the concepts and creativity of the show.  It’s been a while since Glory modeled lingerie but Carrie’s Lingerie Christmas special, available at the Christmas Expo 213 supporting relay for Life, are too cute to not showcase.  Taxi please…

First up something to lounge around the house in while waiting to open presents on Christmas morning, the Carrie’s Lingerie Haley Plaid Holiday.

Next up is the most adorable lingerie set with a skirt option, top hat & cane, Carrie’s Lingerie Cheri Holiday. I love any corset that come with skirt options because A) instant feminine, & B) it hide things (giggles).  What I really love about the Cheri Holiday set is the close resemblance to my favorite Victoria Secret lingerie from Tuesday night show (pic below).  Anytime you can mix a feminine skirts with adorable holiday prints and top hats, you know you are going to have a spicy good time! Hurry up and good get these cute lingerie sets at the Christmas Expo 2013!

The 3rd Annual Christmas Expo 2013 in support of Relay for Life of Second Life will open Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 10am SLT!  And, I have some exciting news, I was selected to be an official blogger this year! (Yay me) All the way back in 2011 (my first year in SL), I remember The Christmas Expo fondly!  I loved the Victorian snow dusted street and the beautiful displayed windows, it reminded me of my Dept 56 Dickens Village I used to place around the Christmas tree was I was a little girl.  I just finished exploring the 4 sims (yes, that’s right, four sims!) and it is pure magic.  I will blog items ranging from female fashion to home decor or more!  Don’t forget to dress in your finest for your photo with Santa (daily time slots), and take time to explore the ice skating ring, tree lot auction area with Relay for Life designer trees and exhibit hall.  I hope you enjoy all the wonderful creations from over 80+ SL designers!  (Map below!)
