Day or night…anytime is a good time to be a star!

My favourite part of being in SL is that I can pretend to be anyone that I want, or anything, at anytime. All I need to do is dress the part and poof..I become anything my little heart desires 🙂 . The other day…I wanted to feel like I was a 50’s starlet, with all the glitz and glam that I could ever ask for. Of course, I needed the right look, and that is where Cog & Fleur provided me with not just 1, but 2 looks that just scream 50’s movie star to me.

I’ll start with my daytime look. What movie star could pass up a day at the beach? I sure couldn’t, especially once I saw that the current free group gift from Cog & Fleur was a goodie pack of summer accessories in a fun cherry print, all I needed to do was join their free group. The gift includes my fabulous floppy hat, a tote bag with 3 holding positions, and the sweet bow and cherry earrings, I’ve included a close-up picture so you can see each item better. Now, all you really need to do is throw on a cute bathing suit and you are set. Or, if you love cherries as much as I do, feel free to take advantage of the special group discount for the matching cherry bathing suit, SLink med-foot shoes and sunglasses set. If you have your group tag on, you can buy it for 50% off of its normal price, which is a great deal!

After a day in the sun, nothing beats getting all dolled up and attending some fancy movie shindig. This time, I was covered from Cog & Fleur‘s 2 Midnight Mania boards. My mesh Satin Doll dress in Opal is on the group only board, and only takes 40 slaps to lock. It comes in the standard sizes in both regular mesh, and fitmesh. My lovely matching Vintage Deco Necklace and Earrings, also in Opal, are on the open to everyone board, and will also lock at only 40 slaps. I just love this dress and jewelry, my pictures really do not do them justice.  You will need your tag on for the dress board, and again, the group is free to join. Oh, and I should mention, in case you are worried about having to use a group space…there is a box of past group gifts available for all group members, for free. I have still not finished going through all that is in that box. It is well worth the group space, that is for sure.

Lastly, and I am sure some of you readers who have been around for a while may have noticed, I’m a red-head in this post! When I tried on the Alina group gift skin from [PUMEC], there was no choice. This lovely freckled skin with it’s perfectly groomed ginger brows would just not look the same with any other hair colour. How perfect is the eye makeup for my retro glam look? This skin actually comes with very pretty natural lips, which you can see in my beach picture, however, I needed to stick with my 50’s evening feel and added a layer of red lipstick. Alina comes with a multitude of appliers, so everyone with meshy bits should be happy. The [PUMEC] group is only L$99 to join, and there is at least one other gift out for you to grab, if not more. This is a pretty generous group 🙂 .

*sighs* What a lovely day I had. Not everyone can say they just decided to become a 50’s movie star and actually do it. This is why I love SL! Now I am off to find more lovely things to show you, and maybe become someone else entirely. Until next Thursday, TTFN.

Designer Showcase in January

Have you been to the Designer Showcase event?  There are extremely well made items from designers throughout the grid all at L$100 or less.  Here are a few of the things I picked up to show you.  The Wrought Iron Whimsy Gateway is only L$100 from <!WorN?> Weather! or not? at Designer Showcase.  There are three different styles included, I’m showing the ornate version because I really like the details!

The outfit from [ Riddle ] is quite possibly my favorite thing at the Designer Showcase.  This L$99 outfit includes three different brown argyle stockings, the red candy apple Basic Sweater dress, and brown Winter Blues coat.  The red Holiday glasses from [BUTT-ERR] are L$50 and the silver Shroom necklace from Gypsys! is only L$100 at the Designer Showcase.  Both these accessories really pull the look together to make a statement.

The red Sheath dress with lacy black blouse is only L$99 from Smushyface at the Designer Showcase.  I think the dress looks really fun with the Heartz fishnets from {.Mocha.}.  The fishnets come with four different styles for only L$100.  The Gala texture change jewelry set from is L$75 at the Designer Showcase.  If you like to wear lots of jewelry then this is the set for you!  The Skoochers 2 shoes are L$30 from HOC Industries at Designer Showcase.  These shoes have 3 different colors and can be resized to fit men or women.

Every classy lady needs a fur bolero.  The black Fur Bolero and hat from Eshi Otawara are only L$50 at the Designer Showcase.  I used the Winter 4 makeup from GLAM! Skins to change up the new Sylvan skin for Exodi group members.  The GLAM! Skins makeup layer is L$75.  I swear I have this lipstick in RL and wear it all the time, so of course I love this makeup!

In this cold winter season so we all are sporting coats and jackets, most are wearing them with shirts underneath though.  I really like the L$100 plum Les Bleuets jacket from The Secret Store because it has an oriental look.  For a more down home country look, the Woolen Bodywarmer vest is L$99 from Instinct Inc. at the Designer Showcase.  The Stars and Flower Flourish tattoo is only L$75 from Oddity spices up the ensemble a bit.  There also is a male tattoo available!  The Hatter is Mad Blackjack 21 hat is L$100 at Designer Showcase and brought out the cowgirl in me.  The green Gwen flats from ~Hurrem~ are L$100 at the Designer Showcase.

The Wintertime Bird Feeder is only L$99 from -Hanaya- at the Designer Showcase.  I really like that the feeder includes bird props so you can pose extra birds to eat the feed that has spilled out.  If you’re looking for a nice gown, the dark red glitter gown with pearls from *marret* is L$90.

I’m an angel and capture hearts in the Obedient wing set from >>MeKa<< and the Jar of Hearts necklace from JoJo.  The wings are L$60 and the necklace is L$79 at the Designer Showcase.  The long brown Clarissa hair from [Urf!Urf!] is L$100 at the Designer Showcase.  [Urf!Urf!] is a new to me store and I can’t wait to go explore the main store!

There are many more offers at the Designer Showcase so take a look around!
