Pictures of Lilly

I always wanted a Lilly Pulitzer dress in RL.  I would clip ads out of magazines, imagining myself on yachts looking chic and colourful.  Once, on a trip to NYC, I walked up Madison Avenue and found my way into the hot pink and kelly green shop, marveling at the framed prints and reams of fabric.  I peeked hopefully at at price tag on one of the dresses – a blue, swirling candy creation, and balked.  The price was way beyond anything I could hope to afford.  I kept on dreaming.  If only I could get my hands on Lilly for an affordable price….

SL Makes Dreams Come True!

I know it’s not *exactly* the same thing, but I found my Lilly Pulitzer-inspired dress by Albino Peacock for FREE in SL!  The best part is, I got a whole lotta other stuff for free too, including the earrings by Baubles that I’m wearing!  I jumped over to the Flawless sim and took part in the Game Show Quest.  By clicking on the sign, you’re given a free HUD that will lead you to 14 different shops, ask you questions, and at the end, you win a whole load of prizes!  The whole game took about 45 minutes, and I actually had a really fun time.  Give it a try, the prizes are well worth the time.  You’ve got until March 19th!

Everything Has Its Wonders

Hazardous

“Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in therein to be content.” – Helen Keller.

Another dark exploration?

On my last sim hop in my post [Here] I explored a dark cafe. I failed to mention that while I was there snapping my pictures, there was a hospitable couple also there who chatted amicably with me — Mr. and Mrs. S.

The gentleman, Mr. S., asked to take my photo. I said sure. Later, to my surprise, a notice popped up in my Flickr feed that I had been tagged in a photo, and in case you are interested, the result of the mysterious Mr. S.’s photo can be found [Here]. I think it’s a rather flattering shot.

I was doing some skimming for group gifts and I came across an advertisement for em@il’s applier leggings. The style caught my eye and I wanted to put a look together. And long story short… I wanted something dark, because something in me was longing for the wonders of the darkness. Not in a negative way, but in the way one longs for silence before a band plays beautiful music. That’s how I ended up at Hazardous. (The sim you see in this post’s pictures.) It’s really a fabulous place to visit… but I don’t want to give away the secrets. You really must go there for yourself.

What do the leggings that inspired the look include?

The leggings are a FREE group gift from em@ail (the group is FREE to join) and there are quite a few very pretty past group gifts still out at em@il for you to check out while you are there picking up this one.

What you’ll be getting in the package: appliers for system bodies, Maitreya, Slink, Omega, TMP, Eve, Brazilia, Belleza, and KL. That’s a lot of versatility! You’re sure to find an applier for you!

Hazardous 2

Dangerous measures…

A girl has to have dangerous hair to go with dangerous curves (like those great leggings gave me). So when I saw the gift out at Sintiklia I made a beeline. Of course you better hurry too. Right now there are two ways to pick up this gift.

Want the Free to all hair?

If you want the Colors and Pastels version of this hair, you can pick it up as a free to all gift, no group required. Just pay 0L and it is yours. This is a limited time offer, and I hear that it will be gone by the time the week is out. Be sure to teleport to the shop and nab this one up from Sintiklia right away.

Want the fatpack?

You’ve got a little longer on this offer. If you join the group (the fee is 100L) you can pick up the fatpack (110 colors tint pack) … that’s a lot of hair… you can pick this hair up as a group gift. Keep in mind that it is a 4 in 1 hair. You get the rigged mesh back with 4 different bang options. It is also unisex. I’m including the vendor advertisement below to give you a better idea of what you are getting with this really terrific deal.

But put a bow on it.

I finished up my look with something a little softer. After all… I originally reminded you all that there is “wonder in darkness.” So I picked up the FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join) at Baubles. This pretty pair of bow earrings that you can see in my close-up picture above is a nice touch to any outfit and comes with a color change hud with 4 metal options. Danger not included.

Until our next adventure! See you then.

Amour and Baubles

Amour and Baubles 1

The little black dress never goes out of style, and when you can get one with some embellishments and a lot of style itself, all the better!

I was checking out the Dress Me Designs cart at the Cart Wash Sale and happened upon this Amour Mini Dress in black and just fell in amour! Or love! Whatever! It comes in all the standard sizes and is only 10L. Yay! There were several other gorgeous dresses on the cart that you might want to pick up, so I’d be sure to check this lovely cart out before the sale ends!

Amour and Baubles 2

New jewelry always gives me a pick me up, and I took a stop by Baubles! by Phe to see what was out and discovered that I could pick up these gorgeous Holiday Earrings for FREE with my SL frees & offers tag. I love the prism crystal and the little black ribbon bow! And they really offset my new little black dress! What a deal!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws – Oh, My!

There are certain requirements when you begin to write a fairy tale. Or so they say. For instance – you must have a damsel in distress, a prince to rescue her, and everyone must live happily ever after.

But… I threw all that out the window and decided that a nifty necklace, a great set of claws for my SLink hands, a sexy purple gown with a terrific tiara and some great landscaping was good enough to make me queen of the forest this Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [1]

I was wandering the grid this week and happened to accidentally focus my camera into a store I had never seen before and ran across Baubles! by Phe which immediately had me skeedadling inside to scoop up this gorgeous gold and crystal turtle necklace as their current FREE group gift (the group is also FREE to join). I’ve heard that turtles are a symbol for patience and goodness knows I’ve needed it this week! But mainly because I couldn’t wait to show you the goodies I found for you!

If you hop over to Sweet Poison and head to the back room, there is a wall with lower price goodies (across from the wall where the 25L Tuesday and 30L Saturday items are usually showcased). Among these promo items I found this amazing set of Mesperyian’s Claws for only 25L for my SLink hands [gesture style hands required unless you are good at modding!] and they include a color change hud with five great colors! Woot!

Now… where was I to set my tale? Ah yes! All good fairy tales must have a setting, this one included. Don’t worry, wary traveler! It includes a place to rest your head!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [3]

I was thrilled to see the gifties at two of my favorite stores as I did my run around the grid this week, and like any forest Queen who might be in need of a proper place to sleep, Belle Epoque had me in mind with their latest FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join). I am showing you the bed in pink but the gift is a four pack of colors – single beds in Beige, blue, or grey are also included – and each of these lovely pieces are only 4 prim!

Better yet the “box” itself makes a terrific decorative item as well! Look close in the picture above. See my lovely pink potted flowers? Only one prim! And FREE! You guessed it! That’s the “box” that held my beds! I sized one up and it did increase the prims a bit, but the larger one in the picture above is still only 2 prims at the larger size! What a deal!

Still not convinced? Jump on over to The Roawenwood where by wearing your group tag (the group is FREE to join) for just 1L each you can purchase their Springtime Mesh Saplings Tree Set and/or their Summertime Mesh Saplings Tree Set! The Spring saplings are a lovely shade of pink and the summer set is a perfect summer green and each pack contains three different styles of tree(s) all highly detailed and for 7 prims or less!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [2]

So I had my jewelry, my trees and my flowers, my bed for relaxing, and all I really needed was a killer dress. A visit to Luas solved that. Their latest FREE group gift (the group is as always FREE to join) – this Shae Dress in purple – even came with lovely draping, sandals, additional jewelry, and a gorgeous tiara.

I think I’ll pass on the prince. I heard somewhere that in fairy tales they make you kiss frogs to find those…

More From The Formal Flair Hunt

Snapshot_001

Earlier today in Satu Winterwolf’s post, she showed you one of the Formal Flair Hunt prizes, and I have a couple of FFH prizes I wanted to show off too!  At Haute Couture Design, after you locate the hidden black bowtie, and pay 1L, you’ll have the gorgeous mesh mermaid style Marcy Gown that is shown in my photos today.

I decided to wear a jewelry set that I have previously shown you (Gaby, from Pure Poison – still a free group gift / 100L to join), but I am also wearing a Rose Stone Ring, which I found at Baubles! for the Formal Flair Hunt.   Not bad eh?  a huge rock for 1L!

Dress: Avale – Adorella (Subscribo gift)
Body chain: Tentacio – Black chain necklace
Shoes: Blackburns – feather open toe stilletto (29L$)
Earrings: Baubles – Fashion hoop earrings (PSR)
Ring: Phoebe’s piercings – Jeweled ghost set (5L$)

Yes, it’s a Monday but that doesn’t mean we can’t start prepping for saturday night, right?

Avale have a new subscribo gift out! It’s this awesome halter dress that I think is just perfect for a night in the club. Just head on over, give the board a tippy-tap and enjoy your new dress. If you don’t fancy receiving updates and info about new products, you can also buy the dress from 50L$. But you can’t argue with free!

Also free are my eyes! Yes Ikon have a new group gift out and they are gorgeous! They’re a beautiful green colour with so much detail and intricate patterns they’re definitely worth picking up. The group is free to join and Ikon puts out new group gifts every month for 10 days only! So you have 10 days to grab these peepers for free before you have to purchase them at full price.

I'll show you the wild side

Hair: Truth – Renata
Skin: Glam affair – Neva (The boutique)
Eyes: Ikon – Perspective eyes Oxidation (group gift)
Lipstick: The skin shop – Iconic

Finally, my adorable little Pacman ghost ring from Phoebe’s piercings is 5L$ and will be available at Autumn market fair from Sept 22nd – Oct 6th. The fair is definitely an event worth spending the time to wonder around because lindens from purchased items will go towards the SPCA who are working to rescue homeless animals in Navarra. Also, each table will have a 5L$ item so not only will you be donating to a good cause, you’ll get a little treat out of it as well! The Pacman set also comes with a necklace which I decided not to wear, but trust me it’s just as cute!

The essence of pure horror

horror

Skin: Essences – Whisper (50% off)
Hair: Little bones – Ethereal
Necklace: League – Kandula necklace
Top: Pure perfection – knotted basic shirt (5L$)
Jeans: The horror(Group gift)
Shoes: Energie – All star high chucks (1L$)
Earrings: Baubles – fashion hoop earring (PSR)

Good afternoon everyone! I have some lovely group gifts and cheapies to show you today!

First off, my awesome x-ray jeans are a new group gift from The Horror! The group is free to join and Horror puts out new gifts very regularly so you definitely won’t be disappointed if you decide to stick around!

My knotted shirt is just 5L$ at Pure’s new hunt. It’s very similar to a Ricielli hunt. The hearts aren’t really hidden, just dotted around so you won’t be tearing your hair out looking for each item! There are lots of items in this hunt and you can check the board outside the store to see which number a particular item is!

My cool sneakers are just 1L$ on the marketplace by Energie. There are other colours available such as red and black at the same low price as well so make sure you dig around the store and grab as many as you can. Even a high-heel addict like me needs some comfy shoes!

In some not-so-free news, Essences skins is having a 50% off sale on women’s skins. Which is an incredible deal considering that when they’re full priced they tend to hover around the 1300L$-1500L$ range. Now you can get a really high-quality skin for a little as 750L$! If you’re a fan of Essences skins but can’t afford to fork out thousands of lindens for one then now is your chance to snap one up for a very good price!
