Falling into Spring…or Springing into Fall

Happy Wednesday everyone! I’ve noticed that I haven’t really done a Fall type post yet, and even though it is almost half way through November already (OMG, right!), it is still very much Fall in my area, with only the smallest hint of snow so far. So I thought I’d play along with the weather, and do a cozy Fall, not Winter, post, and for fun, throw in Spring. Are you confused yet? LOL.

springyfall1OK, let me explain. Traditionally, sweaters are Fall territory, I think we all can agree there. However, the colours of Fall tend to be warm colours, darker, rich, cozy colours. As you can see in my picture, although my surroundings are screaming Autumn, the pretty  pastel colours of my outfit, are more inclined to say Spring. Skirts also tend to be seen more in Spring and Summer, although not exclusively, and when I got dressed, I couldn’t decide what season I was best suited for.  But, I guess I should just stop rambling and go ahead and tell you where to get this multi-seasonal look eh? LOL. The sweet pink sweater I have on, is the latest group gift from Amiable. I can’t get enough of the lips cutout, such a fun detail. Put out in celebration of the group hitting 1700 members, it is free with your group tag on. Even better, that group is free to join. My skirt is an older group gift from Amiable that is still available, and you might recognize it, kinda, as Love showed it originally HERE, in its darker blue version. It comes with a hud for you to be able to choose between the 2 colours. Both sweater and skirt are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. Make sure you grab all the other group gifts that are still available. springyfall2

I love an easy, slightly messy, updo, with the loose wispy bits making me think of a spring breeze, working perfectly with my Spring in Fall look. Lucky for me, and for all of you, the one I am wearing is from a new to me store called Bold & Beauty, and it is a free group gift! Avery comes in a full fatpack, with every colour you could possibly wish for, and is unrigged mesh, to allow for editing if you need to. The group is free to join, all you need to do is have your tag on to pick up your gift. There is a second hair gift for you, as well as a few clothing items, all free with the group tag.


So..am I reaching with this Fall Spring look? LOL. Honestly, I do not choose clothing based on the season, I’m one of those crazies who wears whatever ever they want, whenever, and no colour is off-limits. Clothing is about expressing yourself, and as Spring and Fall are my favourite seasons, this expresses me perfectly :)

Alrighty, I must be off for now. I won’t be gone long though, as I already have some great stuff set up for another post soon. So, until then, TTFN!

La Belle

“Beauty is power; a smile is its sword.” — John Ray

It is often the small things and simplest pleasures that make us smile. I think that is why I love this round up of gifts and treasures so much. Alone they are simple… but together they are stunning. And they made me smile. Did I need them to be beautiful? Nah… but I felt beautiful wearing them.

La Belle 1

“Let us live for the beauty of our own reality.” — Charles Lamb.

I think Charles Lamb would have approved of the reality woven by the gifts above. [Muse] is celebrating 1000 members with this resizable Evil Eye Choker gift (though there is nothing evil about this gorgeous gift) which you can pick up for FREE with your NSP Floral Group tag. There is a 75L group join fee, but the monthly gifts and goodies make it worthwhile.

Seeing my own reality through that eye, I knew I needed something special to go with it. And Salt & Pepper didn’t let me down. Their group gifts are usually jewelry, but this month the creator opted to give this sexy black romper called Kiara as the group gift. It is FREE with your group tag and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. Again there is a small join fee (100L) but like NSP Floral, the monthly gifts makes it worth it.

I finished off my adventure into my own reality with a spin on the 30L Julianne Shoes Gacha at Belle Epoque. These shoes fit medium high Slink feet and come in quite a few colors to match just about anything in your wardrobe. I love the strappy, open-toe style!

La Belle 2

“The more often we see things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often we see them less and less.” — Joseph B. Wirthlin

I wasn’t done with Belle Epoque this weekend, though, as you can see in the picture above. Sometimes you need to take a little time to stop and smell the flowers. And Belle Epoque‘s 30L Saturday offer is just the thing to remind us of all the beautiful and wonderful things in life that we often take for granted. Above, I am modeling the Imelda Dress in Pink (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and 3 colors – each for only 30 L!) and there are matching shoes for each color as well! The shoes are also only 30L each for this 30L round. Belle Epoque is leaving this lovely offering out for the weekend, but be sure to stop by before the end of Sunday evening or you will miss out! Hurry!

My necklace is a fantastic 1L Market place find by Cazimi Designs called Diantha Modern Girly Partial Set and was just the thing to set off this flowery dress. It came with earrings too (not shown). For 1L, the quality is hard to beat!

La Belle 3

“Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them.” — David Hume.

Need something more studious? Belle Epoque‘s creator outdid herself this weekend. Well known for medieval fantasy, this FREE group gift with your FREE group join called Eleanor has a vintage appeal that with a few of the right accessories takes on a contemplative look that is just right for vintage roleplay, a date night, or even just casual wear. It not only includes the skirt and jacket in all the standard mesh sizes, but you also get the resizable hat as well.

For a little added flair, I made my way upstairs to the Shoe Gachas again, this time trying my luck with the 30L Emily Shoe machine. A spin won me the pumps in Brown which turned out to be a perfect complement to the outfit. I also paired it with this Sunglass Necklace I found on the Marketplace from BricOle‘s Designs for only 20L.

La Belle 4

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” — Anne Frank.

On a final note, Belle Epoque‘s 30L offerings this weekend are incredibly generous and there really is something to make just about any shopper happy. Not only is the Imelda dress and matching shoes available this weekend, but you can also pick up the Berezia Dress in three colors for 30L each. I’m modeling it in the picture above in champagne.

And for those who love capes and hats but are (like me) distressed that you can almost never find hair to fit under them, this Berezia Cape from Belle Epoque in three matching colors with four hair color choices (again 30L each for this weekend only, so hurry) is the perfect solution. Like the dress, the cape is mesh, but comes in 3 standard sizes and fit perfectly with a fabulous ‘flow’ to it as you can see in the picture above — a great inventory “must have” for roleplayers… or anyone really!

Hi there Fabulous Readers!!  I stopped in at Zanze and found that they have a whole wall of free group gifts, including this very cute one piece Vespa Outfit that will have you dressed in one click.

Of course you will need to add footwear, but the belted jeans, top and vest are all connected.  There is also a texture change hud for the vest, belt and top so you have a little bit of play room for wearing your personal colour preference.

Have a great weekend!

Sweater Weather!

Sweater WeatherFollowing the brightly colored leaves of fall comes the cold crisp breeze of winter; and my favorite season for fashion, which I like to call Sweater Weather! I know we are still in the midst of fall, and I’m not discounting the season, but I can feel the coming of winter and I can’t help but be excited. That being said, BYRNE recently sent out her November group gift to the BYRNE Style group, and it is this warm and cozy cowl-neck sweater dress. If you are not already a member of the group, the group is FREE to join. Check the past notices and you’ll find this sweater dress, and another group gift just for the guys! The sweater dress comes in two colors, red (shown), and blue, each with standard mesh sizes. I took a close-up of the sweater so you could better see the playful sugar skull pattern that makes this sweater so unique and beautiful. Remember, notices only stay available for 14 days, so don’t hesitate to join the group and score this beautiful gift.

LaVian&co Salutes The Armed Services!

whc lavian military 2_001
Next Wednesday is Veteran’s Day, a time to honor everyone who has answered the call to serve their country in the U.S. Armed Forces. Just in time, LaVian&co has a great set of military inspired outfits offered in their men’s group gifts. LaVian&co, renowned for classy women’s clothing with a high-end sense of style, has entered into the men’s clothing market with the new LaVian Male group. Like its sister group, the men’s group offers a huge selection of free group gifts. At the moment, the group join will set you back 99L, but if the group follows its sister group’s business model, you can anticipate the group join will eventually climb, making it a likely bargain at this price.

Several of the group gifts are worthy of mentioning here (after all, I did pick up thirty-eight group gifts). For now, I will concentrate on my favorite outfits; those which salute the United States Military. There are five outfits in this series, each one devoted to a branch of the United States’ Armed Services, including The Coast Guard. Each outfit consists of a brown leather jacket with appropriate patches on the front and an extremely eye-catching full color graphic on the back. On the left in the above picture, you see the front of the US Marine Corps jacket and on the right a side view of the Army jacket. I chose that side view so you can see the patches on the front and a hint of the beautiful graphic on the back of that jacket at the same time. The best way to appreciate these jackets is to click on them twice and see the full-size images in my flickr.

whc lavian military 3_001

In the second picture, you can see the front of the Navy jacket along with the fantastic T-Shirt texture. These jackets all come in five sizes, including two fitmesh sizes. They can be worn with or without the T-Shirt. Next to the Navy jacket is the back of the Air Force jacket in full color. This set of jackets has some very awesome artwork. Even if you aren’t American, or have no interest in military matters, this series of group gifts is a great pickup. Each of these outfits comes with a very nice pair of Mesh Jeans in five sizes, an excellent addition of classic jeans to any man’s wardrobe. You get great basic men’s jeans in four colors (one color is used twice) even if you don’t care for the jackets! To round out these group gifts, they even include a pair of military boots. This is a fantastic set of gifts!

I strongly suggest you go take a look at LaVian Male. The group join is steeper than I usually care for, but for the number of group gifts you get, plus the likelihood that there will be many more in the future, 99L is likely to be a very good investment for most male avatars. Take care everyone and I’ll see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

A Mermaid for Tuesday

I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;

John Masefield, Sea-Fever.

Mermaid Tuesday

I miss the beach… I think in some other life I must have lived somewhere near the shore. When I saw this ‘Mer Camisk’ from For Fs Sake as part of the 25L Tuesday sale… I had to have it. Not only is it a delightful outfit, but it comes with a ton of items. You get the net camisk, the bikini top and bottoms, the rope belt, armbands and thigh band with it’s little net purse of mer-treasure, the seashells necklace, PLUS two skirts. All for 25L but only today.

As I was putting my Mer-look together, Sentinus sent a note card with the perfect Mer- hair to complete my look. This is ‘Eleanor’ and it’s one of two hairstyle Group Gifts right now. Eleanor comes with a HUD with sixteen colors ranging from this pretty Mermaidy green to more natural colors.

Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair! Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen!

Blues is quickly becoming one of my ‘go to’ hair designers. While it isn’t a large as some shops the creative and quality of the builds is spot on.

1. – ‘Bono’  – This tossled feminine style comes with seven HUDs of fades and naturals and fun colors. I kinda wish my RL hair looked like this……  (Free/Group Gift/ Group is 70L to join)

Next up is Curious Kitties. I love this designer’s shop! It’s full of freebies and gifts and some really nifty clothes, skins and full avatars. I could spend all day just wandering around looking at everything. So it didn’t surprise me when I found such super cool unique gift hairs here.

  1. – ‘Christmas Angel’ – I love the wings! (Free Gift/no group needed)
  2. – ‘Frasti’ – White is one of my favorite SL hair colors and when you add snowflakes and sparkle… I’m all over it. (Free Gift/no group needed)

Last but not least is Lala Moon. I first encountered this designer at the Hair Fair and that led me to this fun Japanese video game inspired hair, “Phoenix”. Not only is it free for everyone, no group needed… it comes with twenty four colors to pick from!   (Free Gift/no group needed)

Give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair! Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen!
