“If you are lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it.” — John Irving.
This is a time of year to remember all the things we are lucky to have… and to be generous with those around us who may not be so lucky as we are. It is a time to remember that gifts are often not material, but instead life experiences… things like shared moments of joy, love, or even quiet moments of solitude in which we can reflect. And if we do have material things, now is a good time to share that generosity as well.
Many creators in second life are sharing their abilities with all of us in the form of beautiful gifts and low cost items around the grid with advents, sales, and gifts this time of year as a reminder of the generosity of the season, and the Cart Wash Sale is no different.
I felt lucky to pick up this lovely skirt and sweater outfit by Lucky Charms Fashion for only 10L. With its asymmetrically designed skirt and cowl neck sweater, it’s really a standout. The skirt itself is mesh in all the standard sizes, and the sweater comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as Maitreya and Slink fit too. Your mere 10L get’s you both pieces of the set together in one package.
The Lucky Charms cart at the Cart Wash was a real find in my opinion, as I also picked up this set of Xmas Heels in red for Slink high feet — again for just 10L. They matched the skirt and sweater combination perfectly, and what’s more… all of it is lovely not only for a winter outfit, but would pass for any day of the year, as the designs are simple and classic patterns that will never go out of style.
To give my outfit a bit of holiday cheer, I added a pair of FREE advent earrings that I picked up from the advent Calendar at Chop Zuey. This pair of Let it Snow earrings is from the FREE (no group needed) side and you can buy them for 0L, just stop by the in world store and pick them up for FREE. The detailing on these earrings is simply delightful!
