Nothing will stop me now!

Flapper_001

“In New York there is always something to look at, but it is all infinitely more interesting through a window in the backseat of a limousine.”
― Anna Godbersen, Bright Young Things

I had my trunks packed, and I was ready to see the world. New York was just the start. You know how it is… these years… everyone says the 1920’s are just the beginning. Let a woman drink and smoke and the world comes to an end. Now we are independent, you see, and I’m going wear what I want, and do what I want, and…

Nothing will stop me now!

That’s because Silvan Moon Designs has me covered with a great group gift. When I picked up my POE gift from Silvan Moon Designs that I showed you {here} I noticed that they had out a gorgeous flapper dress as their group gift. The group is 500L to join, but the fantastic gifts make it well worth the fee.

The beads around the bottom are separate and the dress can be worn with or without them, and you also get the modifiable headband. Just a bit of editing, and the headband fit over my hair like a charm. Hurry before this dress is replaced with the next group gift!

Dress sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – M
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Freya – Skinny & Curvy

Now where should I head to next… Paris anyone?

1 Stop, 2 Free Dresses

Old Fashioned_001

I’m going back in time 1920’s style and I’m not ashamed to say that I’m loving it! “Hey waiter when will my table be ready?”

If you’re looking for quality 1920’s style dresses for roleplay at the Chicago 1920’s Sim, or maybe you just like the classic look, Eloise Baker delivers! And right now you can make one stop at the store and get two free dresses! I stopped by and did just that.

First, out in the middle of the main-store is a free to all gift that I’ve donned in my first picture. It comes in all the Standard mesh sizes, plus a Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya. I found that the sleeves on the Maitreya were a little too small and opted for a standard mesh size medium and that seemed to fit just perfectly. Just buy this dress for 0L.

In the picture below, you will see the free gift that is set out exclusively for FabFree group members. Don your free FabFree group tag and pick this dress up. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes plus a fitmesh size. It has a lovely floral look and the waistband is a nice touch. It’s classic styling!

Take A Trip Back To The 1920s With Me!

Chicago 1920s sim is celebrating their Grand Opening with a fun festivities and The You Got A Friend Hunt!  I went down to the sim today and found many sweet 1920’s themed gifts to be found.  It is a fun sim to visit too – with several people dressed up in theme.  Roleplay is encouraged, but not required so feel free to go as you are if you like or dress up yourself and play along!  The hunt itself runs July 22nd  – July 30th.  You can find 11 whisky barrels around the sim and also in 9 different stores as well as a couple of gifts at the Fashion Show area (under a clock shhh).  The fashion show area Grand Opening Gifts may only be available until Sunday, July 24th.

Below are the hunt gifts from Cilian’gel.  The first photo is the Got Blossoms? Outfit that icludes the floral printed dress and matching hat.  Also with the Cilian’gel outfit I am wearing the most recent subscribo gift from Pixelmode which is a pearl necklace and earrings set and also a pair of pink stilettos from In Her Shoes.

The second gift being the demonstration boards.  Apparently this is what us ladies did back in the 20’s (during the day anyways… I have a theory about evening routines which you’ll see below).

The following photo is the men’s gift from Cilian’gel which Carson blogged earlier.  While Carson made it look hot, I think I can pull it off pretty well too!  Who wants a game of pool?  I have a wad of cash, and I have never played  a day in my life before <winks>.

Next up we have the hunt gifts from Starchild Designs, the gorgeous vintage jacket and also the hunt gift from Elaistar which is the Spring Hat w/Roses.  The two are terribly cute together aren’t they? Again, wearing the pearls from Pixelmode that was sent out to subscribers last week.

Now this is what I believe some of us ladies did in the evening…  Hey – a lady’s gotta make a livin too!  I distract ’em with my assets and then feed ’em to the fishes!  Meet my driver behind me..  Carlo.  He doesn’t talk much, but he’s hot.  Starla (co-owner of the sim) mentioned to me that this guy gets a little handsy, so watch for it!   This sexy trench coat and fedora are actually hunt gifts for the guys at Starchild Designs but with a little prim resizing, I think it works quite nicely on a woman’s frame too.
