A Day at the Lake with Chrysalis and Boudoir

Greetings!

A quick post today to let you all know that Chrysalis has now closed their inworld store.  However, you can still purchase her beautiful designs on the Marketplace.  To make shopping a bit easier, for the bargain hunter, Chrysalis has two Marketplace stores….the regular priced Chrysalis and the Chrysalis Attic.  I found this wonderful Margot mesh long dress white in her attic store for only 75L!  This beautiful strapless sheath dress has classic lines and pintuck draping at the hem…finished off with the optional rossette, it is the perfect dress for a wonderful day wandering the countryside or an evening out for dinner and dancing.  You can also find a FREE Chrysalis – Bows & Butterflies dress *Special Gift* in the Chrysalis Attic.
~A Day at the Lake~

I complimented the dress with the [Fairy Tail] Garden jewelry set (group gift/store closed) and an enchanting Spring Fairy Parasol (with animated butterflies), from Boudoir, a Gatcha prize (50L per play) at the entrance to the main store!  My shoes are the Jolie Sandals (beige/Slink flat feet compatible), part of a fat pack I bought from the 50% off sale Pure Poison had this past weekend.  If you missed the 50% sale or if you don’t use Slink feet…you can still benefit from a trip to Pure Poison!  The group is still free to join and there are TONS of FREE goodies at the main store landing point!

Happy Shopping! <3 <3

Ah the start of a new week. In case you have a spot of the Monday-blues, I’ve made 3 cute outfits for you using mostly free and cheap items!

Now if you’re a shoe-maniac like me, you’re going to be so excited when I show you these great freebies from Shoetopia! It’s an all-shoe fair with loads of great designers raising money for Soles 4 Souls. Whilst I was busy spending my money away on footwear, I came across a couple booths that had free shoes! The adorable floral lace-up deck shoes you see above are G-field’s gift for the event and the unique peep toes below are the female gift from Maimai (yes, there’s a gift for men too!)

(Update: Miss canning has taken down a lot of the gifts seen in this post. There are a few still available though. Sorry about that)

And if you haven’t paid a visit to Miss Canning in a while or you’re simply unaware of them, better get there quick because this beautifully made leather jacket below is one of the limited-time only group gifts! It has a colour change HUD as well! Miss Canning’s group is free to join and there are tons of gifts you can get, there are also items that are less that 10L$ on the wall too!

Autumn in the Attic

aytdujyg_001 copy

Skin: It girls – Lorde
Hair: ISON – Heidi
Headband: Pekka – Barbed wire crown
Top: Attic – Native Kaftan (1L$)
Leggings: LUNARICON – Ombre suspenders (TCF)
Bangles: Half deer – Painted Rustic Bangles
Shoes: Shushu – Feel free (0L$)

The leaves are already starting to change over here and despite the shorter days and colder weather, the colours are definitely prettiest this time of year!

So here I have two Autumny dollarbies for you! The overalls and the Kaftan are both 1L$ on the Marketplace as ‘wearable demos’ by Attic, meaning they’re demos that don’t have all the crazy demo textures. But they’re still demos so if you don’t like the colours, you can buy one of the full products in a different colours. Let’s be honest though, you can’t go wrong with this much quality for 1L$! There are a few  other dollarbies and freebies at Attic for both men and women so go check ‘em out!

attic_001 copy

Hair: Truth – Brandy
Sweater: Dirty little secret – Ladies turtleneck (0L$)
Overalls: Attic – overall (1$)
Boots: ALB – California dream (0L$)

Also marked as ‘wearable demos’ are both boots pictured. The grey boots are by ShuShu and they’re an affordable wardrobe staple for the colder months (sorry girls, it’s time to put the flip-flops away!). The native-inspired California dream boots by ALB are also wearable demos. Also, did I mention that they’re both free? Free shoes!

Here’s What’s New in 2013!

Believe it or not, I spent New Year’s Eve in bed with the flu… or something just as bad. Not the best kickoff to 2013, eh? But while I could still hold my head up, I spent some time looking for gifts in the New in 2013 Hunt. I don’t know if it was my fuzzy head or what, but I’ll admit that there were a few items I could not find. And another was so big that I could not wear it without eating more Christmas cookies and adding some Lolas! ;-) It’s a fun hunt with great prizes, and here’s a mash-up of what I did find… plus a few bonuses.

2013_3f

Above, I’m wearing the complete outfit, including top, pants, and sweater boots, from Shattered by Aluinn (#31). I’ve added the breezy L’Bow Flow by DRIFT (#22). Surrounding me are 4 very stylish lamps from [CIRCA] (#4), and the Fly Away decal is by Wall Candy (#1). My pose is from a set of 3 by Demise of Flight (#24).

These charming CandyApple eyes (below) are part of the gift from IKON (#23). Note: there are 2 sets of IKON eyes in 2 different locations, so keep looking until you find the other set! My Helga hair is from *Alice Project* (#15). It comes with a color-changing HUD, but let me warm you: if you’re going to change the color, read the instructions that come with the hair (notecard in the package). I didn’t (I blame my virus-addled brain), and went back to the store twice for another batch before I realized that I needed to read the instructions! I can’t emphasize this enough. :-)

2013_6f

These Black Cat Leggings are from -ATTIC- (#9), and the mesh arm warmers and cowl scarf are from .::IRON CLAW::. (#11). I added an Intrinsic Tank from JANE (free / 0L) and some boots by Gos (not free). The cute bunny bookcase is from [End of Daze] (#21). My pose is another in the set from Demise of Flight (#24).

2013_5f

This lovely, LUMINOUS gown is the gift from [Liv-Glam] (#25); the bodice is mesh and comes in standard sizing. The mesh cubed bookcase behind me is from ChiC buildings (#17), and the table lamp waaay up high is from .:Senzafine (#3).

This stunning make-up (below) is the gift from Adore&Abhor (#13). The shimmery shadow really complements my icy blue Yue eyes from [UMEBOSHI] (#18). I added the Chantelle Gold/Ruby jewelry set, which is the Peace on Earth Hunt gift from Beloved Jewelry, and the new January gift hair from >TRUTH<, which Love blogged about here. Call me “old school,” but I do love an updo with a formal gown (plus, I just couldn’t wait to try on the hair!). :-)

2013_4f

2013_7f

Here, I’m wearing the purple Duffle Coat from OMG! (#36, mesh, standard sizing), along with the Cool Blue jeans from 20.FIVE (#26 – ironic), and a pair of Boardwalkers from ::Ci Co.:: (#8). I added another tank from JANE, and the Silver Heart necklace and choker, which was Christmas gift from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery (0L / free to join / check notices). My pose is the last in the set from Demise of Flight (#24). The precariously stacked bookcase next to me is from [Atooly] (#12). Is that a 13? 8O

2013_2f

I really need to get out more. So here I am sitting on my new beach house from ..:HC Creations:.. (#29). It’s perfect for a warm-weather getaway – in case you’re super sick of snow by now – and comes with several extra rezzable items (the flower boxes and some posters inside), as well as a little sleeping nook upstairs.

Below, you can get a better view of my MG necklace. I added these cool sunglasses from AZOURY (#19). 2013’s so bright, I gotta wear shades!

2013_1f

The New in 2013 Hunt ends on January 20th, so you’ve got plenty of time to find these great gifts. You’ll be looking for a blue “2013.” Please visit the official blog for hints and more information.
