Bouquet

One more bouquet_001_001

Bouquet.

Some things just stand out. The Outer Garden is an intentionally white garden created for visitors to admire, photograph, and just take some time to gaze around in. I found it also made my new gown stand out like a spring bouquet in a winter wonderland. This felt apt, as lately it’s been wet and cold here in real life where I live, and I felt like a splash of color on a backdrop of white was sort of fitting and also strangely beautiful.

Pick this bouquet up…

… from Purplemoon Creations. This is the newest free group gift from Purplemoon Creations. The group tag will set you back the small fee of 50L, but Purplemoon Creations is known for being generous with gifts and hunts, making the fee well worth it to be part of the group. This gown alone is worth the fee in my opinion.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Old World Style

Old Town_001

A little old world style.

I’m gearing up for the first of the year, but first I’m enjoying a bit of old world traditions. I found a Christmas gift that is still out that you’ll want to snag before it disappears that made me feel stylish enough to go out and enjoy feeding the birds at a location that reminded me of such pleasures.

The gold is the thing.

This gold dress by Orquidea is mesh with split sides and beautiful detailing. It’s not quite glitter or sequins, but it has enough shimmer to make it beautiful in any setting. Join the group for a tiny 10L and you can pick it up free under the Christmas tree. There was also a regular monthly group gift out that you could pick up as well. It includes all the standard mesh sizes and a good quality alpha for standard bodies.

In the details.

I stopped by Genre, and like most events right now, you can pick up gifts. The Sn@tch booth had a little bag set out that you could buy for 0L and this classic black cloche hat and these gold spiral earrings were inside… yours as a free gift. They matched my new gown perfectly and I knew I had to take them home. There were lots of other booths with goodies set out for you to pick up for FREE, so it’s well worth the trip. Hurry before you miss the treats!

First Flurries

First Flurries

A Few Flurries in the Forecast…

This newest group gift from Tiffany Designs had me thinking about the holidays and the first possible flurries of snowfall… so I headed for a photogenic sim with snow in place to take my picture of it for you.

This is the Henry vintage suit and it comes in one piece for easy fitting. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as an alpha layer.

Past Group Gifts Still Available!

If it looks familiar, it’s because Tiffany Design’s has put this fabulous suit out before as a group gift, except in a different color. In fact, there are currently four other group gifts out that you can pick up in addition to this suit shown above. You can preview three of the four here:

Paisley Day

Paisley Day

Time to fill out your inventory.

The Menstuff Hunt runs through November, and promises, as usual, to fill our manly inventories with lots of essential goodies. My first stop was Brocade Tiger, where I picked up this shirt and tie combo that I admit, won me over immediately. I like the unique Paisley design and was especially happy when I noted on the hunt website that it is an exclusive gift for the hunt. The gift is FREE, meaning it will only cost you a bit of hunting time. Once you find that iconic blue t-shirt, just buy the item for 0L.

The tie is an optional affair.

Put a tie on. Or don’t. Versatility is always nice when it comes to clothing options. And when you can find a quality gift that gives you that extra “oomf” in the versatility department, you know you’ve come across a winner. I especially love items that are unique. This gift from Brocade Tiger comes in all the standard sizes and includes its own alpha. In addition, the shirt and tie are separate, so the tie is optional. The shirt has a nicely detailed button down front, so it looks just as good without the mesh tie as it does with it. I think you’ll agree that this is a gift worthy of your Second Life closet.

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!

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! 😉
