Winding Down

Little Black Dress_001

I like to wind down in the afternoons with tea. I like fancy teas… like Jade Citrus Mint, or Hibiscus Rose, or even and Earl Grey now and then. I took some time to wind down this afternoon after hunting down some deals to share with you.

April is winding down…

… and with it we will be seeing the last week or so of the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Now is the time to get all those treats from the amazing creators who have set out gifts for us. I stopped by GAALL and picked up this mini dress for just 1L. It has a unique draped front and comes with a color change hud (though I opted to show you the black). You get 8 colors in total in the texture change hud.

Sizes included:

  • eBody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Loving Friday!

Today is Friday, and besides being the start of the weekend, I’m also loving that it’s Fifty Linden Friday. I picked up a pair of heels at Pure Poison that you won’t want to miss out on. These Ralu Sandals have a glittery finish and come with a color change hud for 7 texture choices for the main part of the shoe, plus additional texture options for the heel, straps, and toe. All this for just 50L! But hurry, it’s today only!

“Smart Casual”

By the Sea_001

I found this cozy little spot for dining and listening to music — a cafe of sorts with live music and it’s all set over the sea. If you decide to visit just take a hop over to Isolotto di Garda. It’s got a ton of comfy chairs and a sort of nautical style and it’s all enclosed with glass so that you can see the docks and gulls in the harbor not far off.

The dress code is “smart casual” so I had to dig up something appropriate. I decided to hunt something down instead.

More Women’s Stuff!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt never disappoints me, and this time I took a hop to Tori’s Stylez and hunted down that little red t-shirt to pick up the gift there. The creator generously had the gift for the hunt set to 0L so my floral top with it’s tie front and uniquely styled sleeves was totally free!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – Large + a Curvy
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Revisiting Redeux.

To add a finishing touch to my outfit, I revisited the Redeux Event. You have until April 21st to pick up all of the many free gifts set out for you by the generous creators. I picked up this free necklace by On a Lark at their booth. It comes with a color change hud that changes the color of each little stone for lots of combinations, allowing me to get the necklace to match my shirt just perfectly!

A Touch of Macabre

Back in Black_001

A touch of macabre.

Believe it or not, I was visiting a funeral parlor. I had stopped at Port Babbage again, and I was interested in the pottery in the window of a shop and had gone inside before I realized quite where I was. The somber furnishings and the casket for sale behind the screen quickly gave the location away. But still, I was intrigued. Perhaps it is the fact that I was raised on shows like The Munsters and The Addams Family.

Luckily…

… I was properly dressed for the occasion, thanks to the April group gift from Lisan Store. I had picked up this gift, just prior to going out. It’s a real beauty and the package had included the dress in both red or black, for an equally Gothic feel no matter which color you choose. I love the chained waist and the rose decorated bosom, which adds a bit of flair to this dress, yet somehow manages not to be frilly. As a side note, the dress only comes in Maitreya and Slink sizes for wear.

You will need the Lisan Store group tag to pick up this dress. It will set you back the small fee of 55L, but you’ll not only have access to this beautiful group gift, but also a about 6 other past group gifts that are still set out for you to enjoy. All of them are quality and lovely and make the join fee well worth it.

Stopping for a Cuppa

coffee 2_001

Always a hot… hunt.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is one of my favorite hunts. I always love surfing through my inventory after a few stops along the trail. I happened to pick a stop – Mimi’s Choice to be exact – and head home to unpack and was thrilled with the beautiful form fitting flowery gown I unpacked.

This dress nice enough for a date night out, but casual enough for coffee at a cafe. It’s sure to be perfect for any occasion, and it includes all the popular sizes such as:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza

Shoes make a match.

If you hurry, the [MUSE] and NSP Florals March group gift is still out. It’s a lovely gift well worth picking up. You surely must have noticed my gorgeous shoes! These hipster wedges fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza Feet, and include a color change hud with 6 different colors to match your outfits. Hurry! With March being over, I’m not sure how much longer this gift will be out to pick up!

Vintage? Or New Age?

New Age_001

Vintage… or New Age?

The Vintage Gacha Fair is open until March 19th and you can visit it to pick up old Gachas for 30L a spin, plus there is a free gift at every booth! I picked up two gifts that inspired me to put together a creative look and I can’t decide if its vintage flapper or new age woman… but I love it none the less!

My arm bands, choker, and headband were free at the Vintage Gacha Fair courtesy of Sweet Kajira, and when I put them on they fit like a dream and I knew I needed to find something to match. I was pleasantly surprised when I ran across another gift at the Fair that stole my heart… or rather my eye.

If you stop by the BlackPearls booth, also at the Vintage Gacha Fair and nab their free gift, you’ll get the headdress with eye-patch that fit just perfectly over the top of my Sweet Kajira headband. I only had to edit it just a tiny bit to pull it out from my hair so my hair didn’t poke through. And the two were a match!

Off to find a dress…

I knew that I needed the perfect outfit… or in this case – dress – to go with my outstanding accessories. Black Rose didn’t let me down. They have set out their March group gift and it is beautiful. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. When I paired it with my Vintage Gacha fair finds, I couldn’t decide if my look was Vintage Flapper Woman or New Age Gal, but I loved it anyway!

Sizes included for the dress:

  • Classic mesh sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Dream a Summer Dream

Dream a Summer Dream

Sometimes we need to recharge… take a moment to close our eyes and dream. I found the perfect sim for it if you like art and books. You might want to stop by the Arts and Literary Salon where there is book discussions and art displays for you to enjoy.

I took the chance to put together a dreamy summer look while I enjoyed one of the blankets under a charming little tree I found. My look is courtesy of Wicca’s Wardrobe this morning.

First, I picked up the 1L Women’s Stuff Hunt gift that Wicca’s Wardrobe is generously contributing to this hunt as a prize. It is this lovely strawberry dress in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. The box also includes two texture patterns of the dress, so you get not only the dress I am showing, but one additional pattern. And only 1L for all of this strawberry goodness!

I was pleased to discover that the August group gift at Wicca’s Wardrobe was a sexy pair of boots that matched the dress quite nicely. These over the knee dragon boots come in standard mesh as well as slink fits. To get them to fit my Maitreya body, I simply removed my feet. They are highly detailed, and there is a male version of the boots out for group members as well. If you are not already a member, the group fee is 50L, but you get access to many past group gifts as well as these fantastic boots, making it well worth your join fee.

I’m off for a nap and a dream. Enjoy your day!

A Soft Serve of January Indigo

A Soft Serve of January Indigo

The latest group gift at Glitterati for January is a lovely little black dress with a twist! It has detailing around the neckline, cuffs, and hem with buttons too that all have a retro feel with their yellow and white swirly-style pattern! It comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh, Belleza fit, and Maitreya fit… so you’re sure to find YOUR fit!

This cute little retro-feel number is yours FREE with your group tag and the group is only 100L for membership. There are LOTS of past group gifts to pick up that are just as nice, so it’s well worth the small fee to join this group!

My fabulous hairdo is called Indigo and is an offer for Alice Project VIP members. The price to join the VIP group is 750L, but it gains you access to a huge number of gifts and goodies and special offers. (Such as this hair I’m wearing today). If you hurry down to Alice Project today, you can pick up this particular hair as part of the Winter Project.

Don’t fret though, if the price tag is too steep. As Love showed you in her post HERE, there is a gift each day until February 14th for non-members too and those are totally FREE! So either way, everyone wins!

I’m including a picture of the hair/color options from the vendor advertisement below just as Love did, to give you a quick reminder of what you get FREE and what you get with the group membership. Remember, if you miss a day, don’t fret! You can pick up the missed days for just 50L!

Halloween is so *Foxy!

Halloween Is So Foxy! 3

“This witch can be bribed with chocolate.” -Anonymous. I would also like to add… for some of us that includes good free and low price fashion for Halloween! And *Foxy Fashion has come through with treats for the holiday, which I’m going to show you how to mix and match (as always) because as you well know… I love to do that!

The first base outfit, which you can see above, is the Evil Bunny Halloween Hunt Gift. Find this in the *Foxy main-store and for the tiny sum of 1L you will have the stunning Latex shorts and top in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitted mesh. It also includes a surprise set of pasties inside (which I loved). The pasties come in standard layers as well as the different type of appliers such as Maitreya, Omega, and TMP and have two versions: “Angry” and “Happy”. I’ll be showing you “Happy” in my posts, because I was so “Happy” with these great finds!

Halloween Is So Foxy! 1

“A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks.” – Charles Gordy

The pumpkin guy next to me is definitely smiling… as are my “Happy” pasties! I paired the Happy pasties and the shorts from the 1L hunt gift with a rocking sheer top that *Foxy currently has out in the store in two different styles for only 49L. I love the way these drape and the pasties under them make them PG enough for anywhere.

Above you can see the top in Pumpkin and below you can see the top in Spiderweb. I wanted to make sure and give you both a front and back view of both the top AND the hair I’m sporting… because the hair is a fabulous gift too!

Halloween Is So Foxy! 2

“Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can’t see where it keeps it’s brain!” – Sheruni Ratnabalasuriar

Did you notice the hands on that piano? I know creepy! I’m keeping it away from me! But seriously, the detail on these *Foxy 49L sheer tank tops is not to be beat. And you can get the back view of the Spiderweb tank in the picture above… as well as the back view of my hair. I’m sure you were admiring where I was keeping *MY* brain!

Right now if you stop by MINA Hair and join the group you can pick up this unisex hair, called Tristan for FREE. The group is 200L to join but there are two gifts out: one for women and one that is unisex and the fee gets you periodic gifts plus everyday in-store savings! That’s a tough deal to beat!

Halloween Is So Foxy! 4

“Use your imagination not to scare yourself to death but to inspire yourself to life.” – Adele Brookman

And we’re not done yet shoppers! Because the picture above shows you something you won’t want to miss out on!

This *Foxy Group Gift just brought my imagination to life! I love the jumper (jumping not including :P) and the textures on this great little number! It is the FREE October group gift from *Foxy and the group is FREE to join, making this little number completely affordable for everyone! Be sure to get over to *Foxy and inspire yourself too!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars

This week was a twice in a blue moon week! As I have several special gifts to show you, two of which are from “Moons”.

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [1]

Your first stop will be at PurpleMoon Creations to pick up this stunning gown. The group is 50L to join but so worth it considering that the gifts (like this gown with its gorgeous detailing around the neck) are stunning and free once you join. This gown also includes glove appliers for Slink Physique and Omega as well, and not only the standard fitted mesh sizes but also a fitted mesh dress too!

My next “Moon” was Moon Hair where I got lucky with the Lucky Letter Boards as my letter came up! My gorgeous hair (called Spit at the Stars) is on the boards there at present in the back room. The Boards require the group which is 100L to join, but again, its a group well worth joining. Not only do you get access to the Lucky Letter boards, but also to many lovely present and past gifts which are setting on the counter in the Main room. Lots of beautiful new hairs for you! This Lucky Letter Board hair was in Naturals 1 and it is snazzy!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [2]

For a look this good I needed some terrific jewelry, which I was able to find over at Lazuri. There are some items out that require the group tag to pick up, but if you look off to the left of those, this Perlline Necklace Set is completely FREE – no group required – and color change too! There is a matching set of earrings too (they are hidden under my hair) and the earrings are just as pretty.

If you get the chance, take time to visit PixelArt Photogardens where I took these pictures. The scenery is stunning!

See you next Sunday!
