Once Upon a PurpleMoon

Once upon a Purple Moon

Once upon a PurpleMoon… there was a great group gift and you only needed the group tag to get it! The group tag was 50L but the regular group gifts and special offers made it well worth the join fee! This month’s group gift is called Tiffany… and it is every woman’s dream come true…

This dress comes with a half skirt (shown) or a full skirt (not shown) add on, as well as mesh to support all the major mesh body types, including an auto hide for Maitreya bodies! This dress even includes a beautiful sculpt bow for your waist! All you’ll need is to find a great pair of heels somewhere and you’ll be set… just be sure you don’t leave one behind at the stroke of midnight!

Soft Lavender

Soft Lavender

If you love Junbug dresses… today is your lucky day! Junbug has generously set out their beautiful mesh Antoinette dress in three different colors for just 30L each. I’m showing you the lovely lavender shade  in the picture above. This dress has a cinched waist and a full skirt with a pretty bust on it and is classic Junbug quality. It would be beautiful for a formal setting… or perfect for roleplay. But don’t delay! This is a Saturday only deal! You only have until the stroke of midnight SLT!

Soft Lavender 2

I paired my new pretty Junbug dress with the latest June group gift from Ecco Jewelry. The group fee is 200L but remember… you get access to lots of past group gifts and in addition there is a group exclusive lucky letter board inside the store for shoppers. And that’s not all! There are two additional lucky boards in the main-store that are completely FREE… no group required! This pretty necklace comes with a color change hud that allows you to choose between three metal choices: silver (shown), gold, or black — for lots of versatility!

Happy Saturday!

I Heart Purple

I Heart Purple

It’s safe to say I love when a new PurpleMoon Creations group gift is released… and the Freda gown that is available now is no exception. This purple sequined beauty is amazing! It includes the main mesh dress which I’m showing you, plus several add ons — system and omega applier gloves, and a flexi skirt which I opted to leave off because I liked the sleek look of the skirt without it.

This dress comes in all the standard sizes, plus standard fitmesh sizes, as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. The PurpleMoon group costs 50L to join, but you’ll see regular group gifts for your fee (and this one gift alone is well worth that sum!).

I Heart Purple 2

I always try to add a little sparkle to my outfits with jewelry. This dress didn’t need much, but I found what I was looking for at Zuri Rayna. Just not exactly in the form I expected! The SL Frees & Offers group gift there (the group is FREE to join) is a FREE belly piercing! But…. a little imagination had me imagining this Chantelle’s Heart Belly Piercing as a pair of earrings.

To get the same look, you’ll need to make a copy of the piercing and then use the ‘attach to’ option in your inventory to attach one to your avatar’s right ear and one to the left. Then resize each new “earring” by downsizing it 20%. Edit the new “earring” into its proper place and voila! You could always wear it as a Belly piercing too of course, just be sure to make one extra copy that you don’t edit!😉

My hard earned trip to Fameshed early on had won me a fabulous shirt for men which I showed you HERE, but I wanted to make sure that I didn’t neglect to mention this fabulous suit by Kauna that is also being given at the event as an anniversary gift FREE.

This suit is the full kit and caboodle and comes in fits for standard avatars as well as Slink and TMP. You’ll be getting the pants with attached belt, a waistcoat (not shown), the lavender shirt which comes in four versions (various tucked in and untucked versions, as well as different sleeve cuff versions), plus the jacket. The fit and movement of the suit is superb. You’ll need to join the FREE Fameshed group and stop by the Kauna booth and click the box to pick up this outstanding FREE gift. If you want to avoid the crowds, don’t stress, you’ll have until May 27th.

Two to Tango

Two to Tango

Prudence tipped me off on a sweet set of hunt gifts at Sparrow by Design… that had Loki and I tangoing off that direction!

I scored a sublime dress with this beautiful floral print in all the standard mesh sizes. It comes in a few layered pieces, so you can leave some of the layers off, if you want a slimmer fit, but I decided I loved the flounce! For only 1L and a little bit of hunting for the tulip at the shop, this dress suited my fancy just fine!

Loki picked up this sweater and shirt with the floral tie… and the tie just happens to match my dress. Again, his item was just 1L. Both of these are at Sparrow by Design and are the store’s lovely contribution to the Flowerage Hunt which runs through the end of May.

We are off for our tango! Happy hunting!

Just for Today

Just for Today

I love Saturday! And I love Saturday more when the 30L list comes out and I find something perfect to wear!

This week I fell in love with PoshTale‘s 30L offering. If you stop by the main-store location, you can pick up the Alysanne dress for just 30L. It includes the dress, the arm warmers and the scarf… plus a color change hud. The hud offers you 6 different colors and changes each different item separately so you can get a bit of mix and match (like I did in the picture above). Each part also attaches as a separate piece, again allowing you more dressing options!

This dress is mesh in all the standard sizes and for this much versatility and color, 30L is a steal! It’s just for today! So don’t miss out!

An Easter Formal

I think my alt-er ego Loki felt bad about our earlier camping trip… because he took me for a sunrise formal dance this morning at a beautiful spot! We even wore matching formals… how cute is that! (Nope, I will never let him live it down!… I’m sure he’ll get me back later!)

An Easter Formal

Right now is the perfect time to be a member of Tiffany’s Designs for both men and women. For just 50L for your group membership, Ladies you can pick up this Emily gown in purple. It includes system layers as well as appliers for TMP, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and Belleza, as well as a flexi skirt with a lovely flow and finish. You also get a set of gold jewelry (a necklace and earrings) which I am not showing in these pictures. This gift is FREE with your Tiffany’s membership. You will have to pay the gift terminal 1L to get the gift, but your 1L will be immediately refunded.

Your date can match you for your formal dance perfectly in his Rey suit from Tiffany’s in this fantastic purple color that is the exact same shade as the Emily gown. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and like the Emily gown is a FREE gift with Tiffany Designs group membership (50L group fee). So take your fella to Tiffany’s to pick up this amazing suit!

An Easter Formal 2

Chop Zuey has put out some fresh gifts for our Easter baskets and I wanted a touch of color for my dress and so I nabbed up this Sweetness set. The Sweetness Necklace is a FREE group gift (350L group membership required – but remember, gifts are frequent and plentiful!) but the earrings are a FREE to all gift as a lovely courtesy set out for FabFree members. You can just hop over to Chop Zuey and buy the matching earrings for 0L, no group slot required.

That’s it for now… I have a date and dance to enjoy. Happy Sunday!

Flowers in Betty’s Boudoir

Flowers in Betty's Boudoir 1

If you need a romantic gown for the upcoming Valentine’s weekend — or for any occasion — now is your chance to pick up a Junbug classic as a FREE group gift. If you stop by Junbug‘s main-store location, the current group gift is this stunning Betty’s Boudoir in sky blue brocade. You’ll need to wear your group tag (200L to join the group) but when you consider the gifts and benefits, the sum is worth joining the group.

This gown is highly detailed mesh in all the standard sizes. The corset has stunning ribbons and buttons down the front that are perfect for romance. I did pair mine with a lacy underlay for added romance, but the gown is also perfect just by itself.

Flowers in Betty's Boudoir 2

The devil is in the details as they say! But this deal is certainly heavily! Stop by ECCO main-store next where you can get two perfectly FREE gifts of jewelry to go with your new gown! My simply stunning Pearl Swoosh Earrings are a FREE gift exclusively for members of the FabFree Group. Just wear your FabFree tag (it’s FREE to join the group!) to pick these up! Not only are they delicate and lovely, but they also include a texture change hud with five color choices!

My hair clip is another generous FREE gift, this time ECCO is giving it FREE as part of SL frees & offers. Wear your SL frees & offers group tag (also FREE to join) and you can pick up this lovely Jewels Hair Flower in three metal choices!

Like all group gifts they won’t last forever… be sure to hurry over and pick them up while they are available!

Envy Me…

She’s classic, elegant… and the life of the party. The gentlemen all want to dance with her… and the ladies all envy her…

Envy Me [1]

And if you stop by Junbug‘s quick as can be, you can pick up the Lady Crawley gown in Envy, and be envied too, because Junbug is celebrating 10,000 Facebook likes and 4,500 Group Members with this lovely formal mesh gown as their in-store gift!

Envy Me [2]

… and she has that certain touch of je ne sais quoi that makes those in the room pause… perhaps stare…

Or maybe it’s the breathtaking jewelry that bedecks her slender neck and wrists… which can be yours as well if you drop by Chop Zuey and pick up their newest Group Gift! This To The Daisy Grey Set (which includes a stunning necklace, ring, bracelets, and earrings) is breathtakingly detailed and perfect for any formal occasion!

Here’s how you too can step out in style…

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!
