The Power of Jean

The power of a great jean jacket cannot be denied.  I remember when I found one when I was on vacation in Italy.  I was with a bunch of friends, and we wandered into a store, and there it was.  It was perfect.  It could be dressed up, dressed down, it was the perfect blue.  I hemmed and hawed.  I wasn’t sure I should spend the money…and I walked away.  I regret walking away from that jacket!  Today, you will walk toward a perfect jean jacket – and not worry about the price even once!

It’s Well Made!

Wellmade has a whole bunch of really nice group gifts out – including (of course) the super adorable jean jacket with flower appliqué I’m wearing today!  I think you’ll agree it will go with loads of different outfits, and really pep up your wardrobe! The jacket comes with a handy HUD that has options to change the jacket to black or red as well as the jean version.  Cool!   While I was there, I also picked up this sweet red dress to go with it – it also has an HUD that allows you to change to purple with white polka dots if that’s more your thing.  As I said earlier, don’t even worry about the price for a second, because both the dress and jacket are completely free!  Just join the Wellmade group and enjoy your gifts!  Yay!

Quirk Life

Quirk Life

I’m feeling super quirky today.  Well, I mean…. I usually feel super quirky.  Today especially, because it’s Wednesday and I feel like I need to bring some pep to an otherwise exceedingly normal day.  Do you ever do that?   You know, wear a tutu or cat ears to work just to spark conversation?  I might be alone in that camp, but today in SL is a bathing suit, crazy glasses and zappy gun kinda day.  Ha!

Dive In

I’m feeling just so playful in this bathing suit group gift by Rosary.   They regularly put out really high quality gifts, and this one is no exception.  It comes with an HUD to change to various solid colours, as well as my fave part – the different patterns you can choose through the second HUD.  I went all mermaid on  you, but there are a WHOLE bunch to choose from that made my decision pretty difficult.  Have fun with it!  You can grab this group gift by joining the Rosary group for 200 Lindens.  There are a bunch of other gifts out to enjoy as well!

London Calling

Sixties London

I found a fantastic outfit at The Wash Cart Sale – and it put me in the mood for the swinging 60’s.  Whenever I think about that, I imagine London, England.  You know, Carnaby Street and Mary Quant and Miniskirts.  I hear the sounds of The Beatles in my mind, and I totally want a giant pile of chips.  Though I think the chips thing is completely unrelated (seriously though, if you’ve never had fish & chips in England from a chip shop, you need to do it because your life will be altered forever… so so gooood).  Anyway,  I found the nearest red post box and struck a pose!

Be Legendaire

At The Wash Cart Sale, I found the booth by Legendaire which is filled with fashion-forward goodness.  This skirt and top combo cost me 10 measly Lindens, and is super versatile.  Of course, you can wear them separately, but they also come with various different textures that range from psychedelic to demure.  There’s even a jean option in there.  So Good!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • XXS – L with an Alpha

Extend Your Empire

To very little fanfare, Empire’s May group gift appeared in the main store.  It’s these cute bootie-style heels complete with fishnet features.  I really think you could make these work in loads of different situations.  You may know that the Empire group is somewhat expensive at 500L to join, but there are still a bunch of gifts out to make up for the join fee, including shoes, boots and clothing.  The word on the street is that last year’s gifts will be disappearing soon, so if you’re planning on joining, I suggest you do it soon!  These shoes come with loads of colour options, and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

I need to find some chips now.  SEND HELP!

Waiting for a Response

Waiting for a Response

Dear Spring,

Hey there. I’ve written to you before I know, but you still haven’t answered… I know it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, but I just wanted to let you know that I really miss you.  I miss your warm breezes, your blossoming trees, and your sunny days.  Winter is kinda overstaying its welcome here, and you know the saying – a visitor is like fish, after three months it stinks (isn’t that after three days? Anyway…whatever).  I’m just writing because I’d really like you to come back, and bring all your charming attributes with you.  Please?  Pretty please?

In Anticipation…

Since Spring is still hiding in my part of the world, I’m just going to dress up like it’s Spring and pretend that it’s warm.  I picked up a bunch of fun things at The Project Se7en event – It’s their anniversary, so in order to celebrate they’ve got lots of fun gifts at each booth.  To start things off, I got this cute pink romper by Sys.  I like how it looks all sweet and knitted.  Perfect for cavorting in meadows, I think.  I added these stockings by Ambrosia for a little innocent look, (can we really classify thigh high stockings as innocent…I dunno…but just roll with me) making this look even more fun.  The stockings come with appliers for Maitreya bodies.  Finally, my pose and the flower in my hair are a gift from Belle Poses.  I love the carefree daisy look!  You can grab all these free gifts (and many more) at The Project Se7en by joining the group for free, and taking a walk about and clicking on all the balloon-festooned boxes.  The Project Se7en is open until April 30th.  Have fun!

The Call of Spring

The Call of Spring

Through primrose tufts, in that green bower, 
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths; 
And ’tis my faith that every flower 
Enjoys the air it breathes. 

Sorbet Spring

We are coming close to the end of March, and I’m hoping that the above staves will help bring forth the warmth and renewal we all crave.  I’m just sitting in my green bower, listening to the sounds of spring that are all around me.  I found the perfect dress to lead me into sunnier climes!  I found my way to Sorbet, where there are several group gifts to be had.  I paid 25L to join the group and got this lovely dress.  It brings me a thrill of pleasure, just as Spring did to William Wordsworth when he wrote the above poem (though he did get a bit sad about the state of man, but that’s another topic entirely…).  The Robe Plisée Framboise (oooh) comes in sizes XS, S, and M with an Alpha layer.

Details

My necklace today was another fantastic gift I picked up at Pure Poison, who as I mentioned HERE are really a treasure trove of gifts.  Join the group for free to pick up this lovely necklace (and get yourself loads of other stuff too while you’re there!).   Wheeee!
I hope Spring is sneaking up on you too, wherever you are.

Court of Owls

Court of Owls

Oh, that lag…

So far my first ‘Black Friday’ experience in Second Life has been fun and quite hectic. My full body alpha has never gotten so much use before and even then there were times when I couldn’t outrun the lag monster. Only in SL can you shop while being half trapped in a wall (lol). Anyway, these offers listed today are time sensitive but if you have a moment to spare check out the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event. Most of these stalls are offering roleplay centric clothing but if you’re not an active role player like me (still on that bucket list) it’s still worth taking a peek to snap up some interesting pieces for your wardrobe. For this event, merchants have 30-35L items for Friday and half price items for Monday, though the vendors are set up through the event so don’t worry if you’re just teleporting in now to get your Friday items. What’s more, there’s a gacha market at the event as well and most of the stalls have a free gift out for visitors.

A girl and her owl

For the picture above I’m wearing the free gift from Pekas Gorean and Urban Designs. The Love and Roses gown come in four standard mesh sizes (XS, S, M, XL) with an alpha layer to stop any bits from sticking out. I really love that full skirt and the rippled folds going down its sides are a very pretty detailing. You can never go wrong with the black and white combination and I adore the chalky flower patterns on the skirt and train of this gown.

My graphics card has been a bit grumpy as of late, as you might have noticed as I haven’t been sim hopping as much as I want to. Taking pictures in a box in one’s backyard can get a little lonely so I decided to add this little guy into the mix for today to keep me company. He’s from the Queen of Peace pose set by Belle Poses and is available for at the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event for 35L. There are six elegant poses in the pack and you’ll get six different owls as well so there’s no need to fuss with the position of your feathered friend. He’s so cute that I might just rezz him for fun around the house though I hope the cats don’t try to eat him.

Another day another hair sale

Looks like I haven’t gotten my fill of hair sales after the first day of the Black Friday run. In all honesty, though, I had thought to hang my hat up and then saw that Ayashi was having a 30% off sale for its hairpacks and 50% off on gachas. Seeing that gachas are one of my biggest weaknesses I was off like a shot and picked up the Rumi hair for 50L. That the gacha machine gave me the pink set was just a bonus! The hair sale at Ayashi ends on the 28th.

Skin deep

I was pretty pleased to find that one of my favorite skin stores, WoW Skins was participating the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event. I picked up the Ines skin for just 30L and was pleasantly surprised to discover that it contained six skin fatpacks in five tones. There are cleavage/no cleavage options for each skin as well as appliers for Slink, Lolas and Phat Azz included in the package. What’s more, there are two freckles tattoo layers included as well, making me a very happy shopper.

All about that bling

Full disclosure, I’ve never really worn very many accessories in world. I always vow to punch up my outfits a little bit more with bracelets or earrings or necklaces and then turn around again to grab that full body alpha layer because I’m going to an event. The perils of lag and blogging amirite? Looking through the various free gifts that I picked up at the Black Friday and Cyber Monday event, however, I found a beautiful jewelry set by Footpaw industries. It includes a tiara, earrings, bracelets, two hair accessories and a necklace. I’m only wearing the necklace in the picture above and thought that it’s glittery diamonds and artistic design made the entire outfit more refined.

And that’s a wrap for today dear readers. Have fun inworld and stay safe!
