Not a Wall Flower

Not a Wall Flower

Call me old school if you will, but Casablanca is one of my favorite movies… right up there with Citizen Kane. So when I realized there was a Casablanca remake Sim in Second Life I knew I wanted to check it out. Loki got there before me, but my turn has long been overdue… I just hadn’t found the right outfit… until now.

The Moda Midnight Mania board locked down again yesterday, giving me another set of great FREE shoes for my slink feet. These heels are stunning and come in white with a hud to change the metal on the underside (gold, silver, or bronze). If you missed them when they locked down yesterday, they are there also again today, only in a slightly modified version… so they are worth locking down again today if you picked them up yesterday. I’ve heard a few people say they had some delivery issues. Not to worry, just hit the redelivery terminal and they will be sent to you!

And then I realized that I’d missed the June group gift for TBO The Beautiful Ones! But luckily it is still out! This Venus Dress in Turquoise is still out, though I’m not sure for how long. It comes in all your standard fitmesh sizes and also supports all the major mesh body types like Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. It has a beautiful front, and equally dramatic back (with a plunging back… phew… sexy) and fits like a dream.

There are several ways you can pick up this stunner. If you are a group member (the group membership is 25L) the dress is yours FREE, just pay the terminal 1L and your 1L is immediately refunded and the dress is delivered to you. You can also opt to pay the special price of just 10L if you don’t have any group space, or wish to opt out of joining the group. OR if you are already a subscriber, you can click the subscriber and the dress will be delivered to you completely FREE, no group required. Note: this does not work for new subscriber members, you must have been a past subscriber, so this is a good reason to subscribe and stay a subscriber!

Not a Wall Flower 2

Though I admit that Casablanca the movie was in black and white… I always imagine it being a colorful world. When I saw this FREE group gift flower headpiece by Finesmith (the group is FREE to join), I knew I had to add it to my look… it just had the right feel to finish off what I wanted to feel (yes lots of feels in there right?). Because of course at Casablanca there can never really be any wall flowers… not really… or if they are, they are wall flowers in disguise, pretending to be wall flowers when they are really not. Or that’s somehow the way I imagine that world. “Play it again, Sam!”

Pearl Elegance

Pearl Elegance

A formal gown is always a staple in any lady’s wardrobe in Second Life… and a FREE formal gown is always a plus. When I saw the Stacie gown in coral at Finesmith, the most recent FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join), I knew it would be a dress that I would want to wear over and over.

This beautiful gown with its classic styling comes in all the standard sizes, as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, and Belleza. And the back is just as pretty as the front, with a scooped draping syling that is so lovely you’ll want an updo or a side-sweep hairdo to show it off.

Pearl Elegance 2

I knew that this dress called for special jewelry, so I was thrilled when I saw the May V.I.P. Gift at Ecco… a set of stacked pearls. You get both the necklace and the bracelets as part of the gift. I’ve always loved the classic look of pearls, and this set does it just right, plus you’ll get a hud that allows you to choose between classic white, or to change these to black pearls if you prefer. The group is 200L to join, but remember — you’ll be getting monthly group gifts, plus access to lots of past group gifts to make it worth your fee.

Dreamcatcher

“Are you sure that we are awake? It seems to me that yet we sleep, we dream.” – William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

And you’ll feel like a dream wearing these gifts…

Queen 2

My sheer overlay corset called Dreamcatcher which comes with a body glitter tattoo layer inside the box is by Firefly and was a 1L gift as part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. It was a bit tricky to get to show this one off to you, as it is definitely sheer… but I so wanted to show it to you as it is simply stunning.

This beautiful piece would make lovely lingerie, or perhaps a silk for a flowery nymph in a fantasy setting. The short camisk ends at the top of the thighs and is mesh in all the standard sizes. The full body tattoo tattoo comes in system layers as well as appliers for the Maitreya body. There is also an applier for tiny panties if you wish.

Queen 1

My jewelry is fit for any queen or nymph as well and is a group gift from Finesmith. It was given out by the creator a couple of days ago in commemoration of International Women’s Day. This gift is FREE with your group membership and includes the crown, septum ring, and a pair of matching hoop earrings (not shown), just look in the group notices, which will be there for about 10 more days. The group is 150L to join, but Finesmith is generous with gifts, and they are always as stunning as this, so it makes it well worth the fee to join the group.

An Angelic Cold

An Angelic Cold

Last post it was warm Arabian sands… this post I bring you the cold angelic look of a frost fairy! And it won’t break your budget for this stunning look!

Sweet Peach Designs has put out an exclusive gift for FabFree members at their main-store. This simply Angelic Baby-doll outfit (wings included) includes both system layers as well as omega appliers, and is FREE with your FabFree group tag! Just head to the back of the store to pick it up. You’ll need to pay the vendor 1L but your 1L is immediately refunded, making this gift completely FREE!

To give my look this truly frosty fairy feel, I stopped by Finesmith, where I found that their stunning December group gift called White Cold Xmas is still out. It includes the bracelet, headpiece, and neck-piece shown… all of which are snow and branch “nature inspired” for a truly elemental feel that is perfect for roleplay! This amazing set really added to my baby-doll outfit and was FREE with my group tag. The group is 150L to join, but the gorgeous monthly gifts make it well worth your while!

Wash Cart Sale- Luminesse

SnapshotLuminesse has a whole cart full of not only necklaces but all sorts of jewelry for us at The Wash Cart Sale, each item is 10L so we can fill up our jewelry boxes at this cart!

Today tho I am going to focus on necklace sets since maybe its a little quirk of mine but I like to see how a necklace is going to look before I buy them. Since sometimes from a pic you may think its short when it long or vice versa.

PicMonkey Collage Finesmith & cartAfter much back and forth I finally settled on 2 sets to show off today. The 1st set Seirah Smoke is a choker and earrings and could go from dressy to formal. It could also work with most any color since its black and white in a gold setting. I opted to pair it with a floor length formal pink dress which is FREE from Finesmith right now with a FREE group join.

PicMonkey CollageThis 2nd set is called Celestyn Jupiter, you get a necklace and earrings in lovely greens and browns in a silver setting. This necklace needs a deep plunging neckline and I lucked out and found another FREE dress at Finesmith, this one is a casual short puff dress called Garden Love.

A Swan in Eden

I think I can turn just about anything into a fantasy of some sort…

A Swan in Eden [2]

… and so far I’m having a blast with the Cart Wash Sale!

There are so many amazing creators who are giving us SL fashionistas a great chance to enhance our wardrobe for minimal wallet guilt and it’s truly glorious. And the Less Than 3 cart at the Wash Sale stole my heart with its sexy Eden Jumpsuits!

What I love about this super sexy cut-out body suit is that with the right accessories and in the right environment, it works for fetish wear, casual wear, fantasy wear — you name it! And not only did it come in system layers — but for only 10L you get omega appliers to work with your mesh body as well! (I’m showcasing it here in the white version with my Maitreya Lara Mesh body.)

The body suit also comes in a gorgeous hot pink color, as well as a rich brown, and a svelte black that were all only 10L each. I’d be sure to grab up all these colors as this is a steal of a deal you won’t want to pass up!

A Swan in Eden [1]

For me the perfect accessory to make this sensuous body suit fit my fantasy wardrobe was the newest group gift from Finesmith Jewelry. The lovely lavender headpiece and necklace — aptly named Swan Garden — were striking when paired with this body suit and gave it the fantasy look I desired. The Group Gift is free if you are in the Group, and the Group is only 25L to join… well worth it in my mind considering that there are many past gifts still available to pick up. Just turn to your left as you enter the store!

Below is a picture of the other Less Than 3 Cart Wash offerings. As you can see, they are all fantastic! Be sure to stop by this fun cart and make off with the goodies!

As a teen I had day-dreams of one day becoming a runway model. I didn’t want fame. I just wanted to stomp down that runway wearing something awesome with fierce hair and makeup! This ensemble is exactly the sort of look I imagined wearing. Lucky for us, the look and feel of this fierce fashion can be had without a fierce price tag.

Starting from top to bottom, this sleek stylish up-do is a FREE gift by Blues Hair at the Hair Fair. The style called “Lunaire” comes in a fatpack so there’s certain to be a shade that suits everyone. The Hair Fair ends in just a few days, so don’t miss out on this amazing FREE gift!

You’ll have to check out the photo below to get a better look at these other-worldly eyes Pru has in. They are a dollarbie by Pulcino at the Okinawa Summer Festival. The eyes come in system layers, and include mesh attachments. There is also a green version included with the “blue” version shown. While you’re at the Pulcino booth at the Okinawa Summer Festival, check out the manicure Pru is wearing. You can get it for just 45 lindens for the duration of the festival. I like the metallic look with the vibrant color and tiny anchor detail. I love nautical themed  items for summer! Don’t wait on this one, the Okinawa Summer Festival ends July 23rd.

Now I know you’re curious about this fierce eye-makeup. This masked look is courtesy of SlackGirl. Called “Imperia” the eye-shadow set is the current FREE group gift at SlackGirl. The gift includes a palate with several variations of this style, each with the exotic red mask. The makeup comes in system layers and a Lelutka head applier. The SlackGirl group is FREE to join. To get your gift, wear your SlackGirl tag and click the pink gift box in the center of the room at the landing point.

This great dress is one of five Summer Hunt prizes at More Than Ever. This along with four other prizes are just 10 lindens each, you’ve just gotta hunt for them! I love the cut and style of this dress, I think it’s cute on and it wears well. It’s the fifth of the five Summer Hunt prizes at More Than Ever. Happy Hunting!

To go with the dress from More Than Ever, I picked up the current FREE group gift at Finesmith. The most recent group gift at Finesmith is this gorgeous gold bracelet in a honeycomb design with a detailed honey bee accent. I thought the bracelet went perfectly with the gold belt that is part of the dress. The Finesmith group is FREE to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Completing the outfit are these unique heels from EB Atelier. Also a FREE group gift, these gold and black heels are meant for Slink High feet. Like the bangle from Finesmith, I think the gold details in these shoes ties in perfectly with the gold belt on the dress. The EB Atelier group is FREE to join. Just wear your group tag and head to the EB Atelier main location to pick up these fun heels. The gift is located on the lower level.
