Tea Party

Tea Party

In the spirit of social distancing and the need for sunshine, I had a tea party with this adorably grumpy-faced pup and a rabbit. It was quite fun and not nearly as mad as it might sound. Although, we are all a little mad here. My tea party companion and the perfect springtime jacket are both freebies. One I didn’t even know I had, the other I couldn’t resist. Keep reading for details about both, and my tea party credits will be listed at the end.

The Pup

This is little pupper is the furry companion I didn’t realize I already had. Do yourself a favor, if you haven’t already, and search your inventory for “Ashton.” This cute doggo is part of the “Ashton” starter avatar in your Inventory’s Library. This pet is called “Ashton – Pet (Hold).” I first came across this little guy as a freebie listed on the Marketplace. It was that listing that alerted me to his/her existence in my very own inventory. Needless to say, I had to pass this along to you incase you were every bit as unaware as I was.

COCO 

I’m really into the springtime floral prints lately. This jacket is the most recent group gift at COCO. I really like the print, and the scrunched up sleeves. The COCO group is free to join, and there’s an entire wall of group gifts. To get yours, just join the free group, and click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya), Legacy **Also, the designer noted that Belleza body users should use the “perky breast” option when wearing this jacket.

Stardust

Prudence Stardust Hello Fab Free! So not only does this post contain some great finds, it’s also my little Fab Free virtual tribute to the indescribable David Bowie. For a fan such as me, it’s hard to imagine that his time with us is truly over. Another person wrote that they were not sad, but grateful for his time here. I feel much the same way, grateful that I lived when he lived and had the opportunity to see and hear the way he changed the world forever.

Mr. Bowie heavy on my mind, how could I not also think of his iconic persona, Ziggy Stardust. I put together this uber cute outfit with Ziggy Stardust as my inspiration. The possibilities are infinite when trying to put together an outfit, from the flaming red hair and the often theatrical makeup he often wore. I felt this jumper from Stix was well suited to the task. These playful rompers are available at the current round of Oh My Gacha for just 50 lindens per play. In a lot of ways they do remind me of the bodysuits and jumpsuits Ziggy Stardust was known to wear. Each color of these fun rompers includes a system layer, a TMP applier, and an Omega applier.

I have to say I spent quite a bit of time hunting down the perfect something to add to this outfit, the romper from Stix alone just was not enough for me. I found that something in this Blazer from Luas. This mesh blazer has those very structured shoulders that make me think of 1980s divas and of course, David Bowie in his Ziggy style. This blazer from Luas is available on the Marketplace for just 60 lindens per color.

So last but not least, the one piece that makes the look truly a tribute to the late great Bowie, the zig-zag lightening bolt face paint. This really could be no one else. The makeup is FREE on the Marketplace from a shop called Avanti. I was thrilled to find it, and even more so when I tried the applier. This FREE Marketplace gift from Avanti includes a system tattoo layer and an Omega applier.

Really and truly I hope you enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed putting it together!

Tis the Season at Vero Modero

Hey guys.. looking for something to wear for Christmas without looking like you’re one of Santa’s elves? (not that there’s anything wrong with that…)  Well you’re in luck because this month’s member gift at Vero Modero has just enough of the season’s color to get you into Christmas parties without looking like you should be building toys in a factory at the North Pole.  It comes complete with a casual black blazer, collared red shirt and belted pants. Shoes are not included, so get your own. I’d lend you mine but it’s the only decent pair I have 😉   If you want to dress down, you can wear it without the blazer. So get set with a little holiday cheer and take your sled on over to Vero Modero’s and pick up this great outfit!
