A Jolie Fleur du Soir

5 Comments

Gavin is humoring me today while I “play pixie” again. :-)

I wanted to show you this gorgeous petite dress, La Fleur du Soir, the current group gift at Kastle Rock Petites. The group is free to join, and the sim is simply lovely, so be sure to give it a wander. You can see a little peek of it behind us (please click to enlarge).

Gavin is wearing the latest group gift from *Ydea*, also free to join. Included are the mesh hoodie jacket, shirt and tie, jeans, and shoes. Gavin’s Rhett hair is a pre-opening, sneak peak from brand-new designer { Quandry }. You can pick it up at the preview price of 100L for a little while longer at {EPIC}. 5 colors are included in the box, all with a little, red tip in the front. Scarlett, a long braid, is also on preview for the ladies.

What I really wanted to show you is this skin. Aeva // Heartsick is currently having a sale, with lots of skins available for 100L each. When I saw that they were previewing a couple of new petite skins, I was intrigued, and tried the demo. Jolie Petite comes in several different shades, and includes a red, rose outfit in the box. Now, I won’t lie to you; it’s a bit of a pain putting a new skin over your petite avatar. Nothing at all like putting a new skin on your “biggie.” But it’s not hard – read the directions! – and I think the results are definitely worth it! Have you ever seen lips like this on a petite before?

My earrings are not free, but they are on sale at !ELEMENTAL PETITE for 50L. They are texture change with silver/gold metals, and 4 different gems. My hair is a free group gift from “”D!va”” (free to join; 30,000 Members Gift), and I’ve sized it waaaaay down to fit. All the “”D!va”” hairs I’ve tried are resizeable, and can be made to fit petite avatars; be sure you take a copy first. This one includes flowers, which I’m not wearing, a “wig” with a couple of extra buns, and there’s even a dress in the box! :-)

UPDATED 2/20/13 12:37 PM SLT: Great news! The designer has put the 2 Jolie Petite skins back out for sale because so many people were asking for them! They are still for sale at 100L/per shade so hurry over and grab them. I just picked up the Black Rose version, and I can’t wait to try it. She will also be putting out a 10L petite skin at The Wash Cart Sale, which opened today and Love wrote about this morning. I haven’t seen it yet, so let me know what you think if you try it! :-)

UPDATED 2/18/2013 9:57 PM SLT: I’m sorry to report that the skin sale at Aeva // Heartsick has ended. :-( Hopefully the Jolie Petite skins will be available in the store soon.

  1. Thank you, Love! I keep forgetting not to take wide shots because they look so small in our blog format. Oh well! :-P

  2. Fab post…for what it’s worth, the wide shot does not look small to me…and anyone who wants to see the larger shot need only click on the pic and choose a larger size from your Flickr. I still don’t have a petite avatar, but I LOVE seeing these posts for them. Also clever weaving the male clothing into the post. Nice work as always Serena. <3<3

  3. I agree with Xiu – It’s a wide shot, but not too wide. I can clearly see the details on both avatars :)

  4. Thanks, you two. Hopefully people will click the photo if they want to see it embiggened. :-)
