My favourite part of being in SL is that I can pretend to be anyone that I want, or anything, at anytime. All I need to do is dress the part and poof..I become anything my little heart desires :) . The other day…I wanted to feel like I was a 50’s starlet, with all the glitz and glam that I could ever ask for. Of course, I needed the right look, and that is where Cog & Fleur provided me with not just 1, but 2 looks that just scream 50’s movie star to me.
I’ll start with my daytime look. What movie star could pass up a day at the beach? I sure couldn’t, especially once I saw that the current free group gift from Cog & Fleur was a goodie pack of summer accessories in a fun cherry print, all I needed to do was join their free group. The gift includes my fabulous floppy hat, a tote bag with 3 holding positions, and the sweet bow and cherry earrings, I’ve included a close-up picture so you can see each item better. Now, all you really need to do is throw on a cute bathing suit and you are set. Or, if you love cherries as much as I do, feel free to take advantage of the special group discount for the matching cherry bathing suit, SLink med-foot shoes and sunglasses set. If you have your group tag on, you can buy it for 50% off of its normal price, which is a great deal!
After a day in the sun, nothing beats getting all dolled up and attending some fancy movie shindig. This time, I was covered from Cog & Fleur‘s 2 Midnight Mania boards. My mesh Satin Doll dress in Opal is on the group only board, and only takes 40 slaps to lock. It comes in the standard sizes in both regular mesh, and fitmesh. My lovely matching Vintage Deco Necklace and Earrings, also in Opal, are on the open to everyone board, and will also lock at only 40 slaps. I just love this dress and jewelry, my pictures really do not do them justice. You will need your tag on for the dress board, and again, the group is free to join. Oh, and I should mention, in case you are worried about having to use a group space…there is a box of past group gifts available for all group members, for free. I have still not finished going through all that is in that box. It is well worth the group space, that is for sure.
Lastly, and I am sure some of you readers who have been around for a while may have noticed, I’m a red-head in this post! When I tried on the Alina group gift skin from [PUMEC], there was no choice. This lovely freckled skin with it’s perfectly groomed ginger brows would just not look the same with any other hair colour. How perfect is the eye makeup for my retro glam look? This skin actually comes with very pretty natural lips, which you can see in my beach picture, however, I needed to stick with my 50’s evening feel and added a layer of red lipstick. Alina comes with a multitude of appliers, so everyone with meshy bits should be happy. The [PUMEC] group is only L$99 to join, and there is at least one other gift out for you to grab, if not more. This is a pretty generous group :) .
*sighs* What a lovely day I had. Not everyone can say they just decided to become a 50’s movie star and actually do it. This is why I love SL! Now I am off to find more lovely things to show you, and maybe become someone else entirely. Until next Thursday, TTFN.
