This Is An 80’s Take On Me.

80's1

Hello again all my radical readers! I’m totally channeling the 80’s today. I was born in the 80’s, so was really too young to appreciate them while in them. Now though, I love everything about that decade, and when I received the Midnight Mania board gift from Tori’s Stylez, I was transported back in time. Do you like my A-Ha inspired picture? *grins*

80's3

OK, now that you all have seen a picture that really shows what I’m wearing, let me tell you about it. My super cute dress, and thigh-high boots are what you will get if the Midnight Mania board over at Tori’s Stylez gets it’s required 75 slaps. The Shirazz dress in pink is mesh, and comes in the standard SL sizes, as well as several mesh body sizes. It also has a texture change hud for that little striped peekaboo part of the dress, with loads of colour choices. The Sammi boots are also mesh, and come in sizes for several mesh bodies, but none specifically for standard SL avs. However, I found for my standard medium shape, the Isis sized boots fit perfectly! As if that wasn’t enough, there is also a set of grey panties included, both clothing layer, and through an omega applier. I know right! So much, and all for free 🙂

Naturally, I needed some jewelry, and it couldn’t be typical, it needed to be fun! While opening up the many gifts that I grabbed from the Liaison Collaborative‘s 3rd Anniversary round, I came across the simple, but totally not boring, necklace and earring set from Lybra. You get both a gold and silver set of these, and I think they are just the right amount of funky to live up to the 80’s image. Not everything has to be big, bold and neon coloured to pull off this look. This jewelry is free, and the Liaison Collaborative is open until March 30th, so if you haven’t been yet, you still have time!

My last addition is the pretty skin I have on. It is the current free group gift from AlterEgo for the Toxxic Design Studios group. Now, this group does have a L$500 join fee, but this is the second group gift I’ve gotten from them since I joined, with more to come, so I think it’s a small price to pay. Ayla comes in the rose tone, and if you need appliers, they are conveniently located underneath the poster, each for a small fee. I think the cat’s eye eyeshadow is perfect.

OK, before I head out, just wanted to give a shout out to my picture location. Sometimes it’s really hard to find a locale that works with whatever look I’ve put together, but I was lucky with Joystick’s Arcade. There is no denying its decade 😛 Most of the arcade games are even playable! If you love the 80’s, or arcades, you need to go take a look.

That’s it for me! I shall leave you all with my title 80’s song, you know you’ll want to sing along. Until I see you all again, TTFN!

Spring Gardens

Hey FabFree-ers, the last few days in my Real Life have been soaked with rain so I’m escaping to a sunnier… dryer Second Life.

Joi_001

I found two perfect little top and skirt combos in the Womenstuff Hunt just right for wandering in a garden this week.

First up, is ‘Spring Roses’ from House of Joi and it’s the 0L prize for the Womenstuff Hunt. The combined top and skirt come in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and has it’s own alpha. The style is flirty and feminine with out being frilly, something I really like. Dress it up for an afternoon date or keep it simple for a walk in the garden.

Joi 2_001

Next up is this spring green combo from MooLaLa. I really love this top and skirt and I can see it becoming a regular in my wardrobe. The pieces are combined for alpha layer convenience. If green isn’t your color, the Hunt prize comes with a brown version that will be perfect for Fall. Both outfits come in standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and share that alpha layer I mentioned.

The Womenstuff Hunt runs until March 31st so you have a bit of time to hunt down all the fantastic prizes while enjoying the SL sunny weather!

Enchanting

“Every age can be enchanting, provided you live within it.” – Brigitte Bardot

Roleplay is an important part of my Second Life, and I have long loved fantasy and medieval roleplay in particular… I think that is why I love 30L Saturdays. I am particularly enchanted with a couple of special finds this Saturday. You will have to hurry to pick them up at this price today before midnight SLT, but they are well worth it!

Enchanting 1

If you stop by Les Encantades, you can pick up this beautiful medieval mesh gown in all the standard sizes. The texturing is spot on, and I love the floral print. It can easily pass for many roleplay settings and would be lovely for any lady with the right accessories. It is well worth today’s 30L price tag.

Enchanting 2

I love adding small details to make an outfit stand out, and I was really thrilled with one of several 30L offerings from Moon_Sha. This Celtic Yggdrasil Necklace is only 30L and comes in both male and female sizes; so if it’s not your style, Ladies, point a deserving fella in the right direction!

Dreamcatcher

“Are you sure that we are awake? It seems to me that yet we sleep, we dream.” – William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

And you’ll feel like a dream wearing these gifts…

Queen 2

My sheer overlay corset called Dreamcatcher which comes with a body glitter tattoo layer inside the box is by Firefly and was a 1L gift as part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. It was a bit tricky to get to show this one off to you, as it is definitely sheer… but I so wanted to show it to you as it is simply stunning.

This beautiful piece would make lovely lingerie, or perhaps a silk for a flowery nymph in a fantasy setting. The short camisk ends at the top of the thighs and is mesh in all the standard sizes. The full body tattoo tattoo comes in system layers as well as appliers for the Maitreya body. There is also an applier for tiny panties if you wish.

Queen 1

My jewelry is fit for any queen or nymph as well and is a group gift from Finesmith. It was given out by the creator a couple of days ago in commemoration of International Women’s Day. This gift is FREE with your group membership and includes the crown, septum ring, and a pair of matching hoop earrings (not shown), just look in the group notices, which will be there for about 10 more days. The group is 150L to join, but Finesmith is generous with gifts, and they are always as stunning as this, so it makes it well worth the fee to join the group.
