We Wear Short Shorts This August!

It’s that time again, the beginning of the month, well almost..    The time when a lot of the designers put out their monthly gifts!  YAY!   Wilson’s Closet has done just that, and has her new group gift out for us ladies to snatch!  The group gift consists of these super short shorts and the tangerine buttoned (or unbuttoned you might say) top.  You simply need to join the group  which is free to join, and hit the free gift sign.

 I always meet such lovely people while out and about shopping in SL for things to complete the outfits.  I was at Heart Softens grabbing this hair from the 35L Gatcha when Catanthia struck up a conversation with me.  It was a real pleasure to meet you sweetie!  Thank you for your kind words 🙂

The earrings and ring I am wearing are made by Mood and are curently featured at The Fashion Garret for 70L.  Within the set you receive left and right rings and earrings in gold and also silver as well, so you can wear them with about anything!

As soon as I saw this Glam Affair skin called Layla, I knew I had to have it to go with this outfit from Creative Chaos.  It has an exotic look to it without being overstated as some gold makeups tend to do.  Sorry ladies, this skin isn’t free, but it is being featured at The Dressing Room right now for only 70L!  We all know how expensive quality skins can be – this is an excellent deal!

It was nice enough this weekend that I was able to take a walk in the park. I’m decked out in the new group gift from Wilson’s Designs. The gift includes a Brown Scoop Neck Shirt and Tan Pants. The group at Wilson’s is free to join and past group gifts are still available. I added the Orange Calcite Droplet Necklace, the group gift from A:S:S.

Dance With Me? :)

It’s Saturday night, time to pull out the formal wear and twirl on the floor with someone special!  Below are a couple of really fabulous gowns perfect for an evening of romance.  Even if you head out alone, you won’t be on the side lines by yourself for long!

The first gown I have to share with you is the stunning August group gift from Sascha’s Designs.  The group is 50L to join, but as blogged before, there are years worth of group gifts to pick up – so 50L will be like it never happened!  This mermaid cut gown has the most brilliant shimmery texture that is sure to have all eyes on you.

MESH Is Coming

As we all know MESH is coming, and coming fast. Curious Kitties has a MESH dress out for free. The only catch is you have to be on a MESH viewer AND be on a MESH enabled sim. Curious Kitties Gothic Fuzz on Cutie Land is a MESH enabled sim. BTW, That is where you pick this dress up.

.Curious Kitties_Dragon Dress_Darkness_Mesh Dress

Curious Kitties – Dragon Dress – Darkness is the MESH dress. I did a little experimenting and found out I couldn’t edit the dress at all. No up, down or stretch, I’m assuming this is because it is a MESH and not a prim. It’s a gorgeous embossed satin dress, all one piece. It does have a shirt and panty layers along with an alpha layer to hide the middle of your avie. I’m excited for MESH to get here.

.Curious Kitties_Dragon Dress_Darkness_Mesh Dress

This is what the Dragon dress looks like on a non- MESH sim. It’s a prim and can be edited. I hope MESH hurries up and gets here. It frees up a lot of attachment points so you don’t have to remember to “add” instead of wear. *rolls eyes* I always forget that. Notice the difference in the hair also, its the same hair. The top is on the MESH enabled viewer, the bottom is on Phoenix.

The viewer I used is LL’s Secondlife MESH project viewer that can be found by going to the download page then to alternate viewers page.

A Night Out On The Town

I went shopping around yesterday and found a few goodies perfect for a night out on the town!  Please excuse my grainy pictures – I have switched veiwers and am struggling to find just the right settings all over again lol.

Look #1:

Hair Softens has a new group gift for its members. The group is 100L to join, but they do have two group gifts up and change them every few weeks. I have picked up quite a few cute styles as group gifts over the past few months. This month’s group gift is called Lily and comes with the beautiful flower band.

The fuschia dress in the photo below is from Red Passion and is a dollarbie in their store. By the looks of it, they will replace it next week – so if you want this dress, you better go quick!  You’ll have to join the group to take advantage of this 1L deal, but the group is free.

Look #2:

This stunning green dress and fur is a gift from Jadore at Mimi’s Choice.  It’s called Discoteque and looks great with the fur on, or off.

As I was snooping around in Jadore’s area at Mimi’s Choice, I noticed that there was a free gift on the floor just across the aisle from Tattanooga.  I love when freebies just fall in my lap!  Tattanooga has a free gift for men and women.  The women’s gift is the great eyelash tattoo I am wearing in the photo below.

Riddle me a Vintage Summer

Today I felt like relaxing by the shore, so I grabbed a cute tote and went to my favorite beach.  The bags come in five different colors and are hidden in the water bottles in the two RibboN stores.  The mandarin stripe Summer Border top is a new gift in the C’est la vie lucky board.  I paired the shirt with white discounted jeans from INDI Designs for this week’s Taste of SL.

I also picked up the Vintage Floral dress for C’est la vie group members.  This dress is perfect for a warm day.  The Tracy hat hair is from Amacci.  There is a Summer Hair Sale going on at Amacci and packs of 6-7 colors are L$85 each!  This includes all hairstyles!!!

The denim Kaley dress was sent to the Sweeter Than Candy sub-o members this morning.  Sweeter Than Candy is a really amazing sub-o to join with lots of gifts.

Riddle group members were sent the violet Beach Time dress this morning.  There is a L$100 enrollment fee to join the Riddle update group.

I’m a Goth Girl

Tainted Design is having another special Midnight Mania Board weekend. She has a $100L gift card on one board and an outfit that isn’t for sale on another board for one day.

.tainted_002

Tainted Goth~Girl isn’t for sale in the store. Pale only puts this in her Midnight Mania Board at Tainted Design on occasion. So if you want it you need to go slap that board Saturday. This is a complete outfit with a bra, corset, panties, garter/stockings, skirt and the boots.  

.tainted_006

These Ribbon~Shoes will be on Tainted Design’s Midnight Mania Board on Sunday. They come with a HUD to change everything, skin, ribbons, shoe and soles. You can create any color combination you want.

Four Glam looks for under L$100!

I always wonder how people spend their Friday nights… all of the different things to do to celebrate the weekend… whether it be going out for a fancy dinner, getting all dressed up, sitting back in your favorite pair of jean shorts and tank top, or going out to dance and enjoy the nightlife. I hate to quote Rebecca Black, yet again, but… “it’s Friday, Friday …gotta get down on Friday.” (Carson, please don’t kill me for that :P).

I love when I find big rooms of items for 10L …wait, who am I kidding? How often do I run into one of those?! Well last night, Renee told me about Glam Affair and it’s been featured in this blog before …but with new stuff and lots of options to choose from, I couldn’t help but to go check it out for myself. I gave myself a spending limit of 5oL and frolicked around like a kid in a candy store.

The first thing I saw was the adorable Chartres dress. The classy high neckline and the gold stripes across the top and the hem give it sort of an Egyptian feel to me and what girl doesn’t want to feel as powerful and elegant as Cleopatra?
10linden_001edit

And then, after finding a handful of free leggings at Sheer, I wanted something funky to pair with the zebra pair and thought the Courtney dress in Sea was absolutely perfect. Perfect for a night on the town or a party… I didn’t have a pair of heels that went well with it but a nice pair of pumps or wedges would do the trick along with some bold jewelry.
10linden_002edit

I wonder how many times I can reference Rebecca Black in a blog post before the blog police come and get me… but I wanted to cater to the people who like to spend their Friday nights “gettin’ down” (I think any amount of “cool” I previously had, is gone by now – long gone). I found the Valinka dress and thought it was just funky enough to do the trick. The dress would also look good with a pair of jeans under or a jacket and with or without a pair of equally funky high heels.
Snapshot_021edit

The last outfit is definitely more my style. Something casual, cute and easy to wear without a fuss …something you could throw on and head to the beach wearing. Since it’s still summer, jean shorts are a must and you can’t go wrong with a pair of jean shorts and tank top – like the Capri tank in Sea.
Snapshot_022edit

Glam Affair is filled to the brim with clothes for women and men and styles anywhere from casual to formal. I didn’t actually get around to picking up the new stuff but it’s all worth checking out (and a good excuse, incase you need one).
