Sweet Summer in Venice

The Cart Wash Sale has begun! The theme is Spring Freshness and it will run at The Wash from March 16th through March 30th, so you’ll have plenty of time for shopping all the amazing bargains. I’m showing you two fabulous deals in this post!

Sweet Summer in Venice

I stopped by the HANAU cart first and picked up this Floral Summer Outfit in Combination 1 for just 10L. It comes in several other colors if pink is not your thing. For your tiny sum of 10L, you get the mesh skirt, mesh top, and the matching necklace. The outfit comes in all the standard sizes, so you are sure to find your fit.

I also headed over to The Dark Fae‘s cart where I nabbed up these amazing platform heels! Woo! They include the socks (which have a fab fab fab color change hud for lots of fun coloring choices, including a skully option which is just so fun!) and you can also buy the pumps in lots of different colors. For only 10L a pop, I wanted them all!

** Quick added note! These shoes come in regular mesh fits, as well as slink and Maitreya mesh fits!

I did make a leap over to the Arcade Gacha. Now that the crowds have died down, I picked up this lovely style by Exile called Blink for only 50L per spin. There are two styles in the machine (Blink or Wink) and both are equally lovely as Exile styles always are.

The Wash Cart Sale – The Dark Fae

It’s that time again! The Bi-Annual Wash Cart Sale! Yayyy. OK, first, I need to confess, I started looking around before the sale officially started, as so many of the vendors already had their wares out. Whew! Glad I got that out of my system. Now, you all know me and shoes..so it’s no surprise that I gravitated towards The Dark Fae cart, as it’s all shoes! What you may not realize about me, 75% of the time, I will gravitate towards flats, even in RL. So I was really happy to see that the shoe offerings were  the super cute, beaded Boardwalk sandals.

DarkFaeWC1

I went with the Skittles pair, as I really liked that the beads were different colours. Each pair does come with a HUD with 4 leather colour options (although I somehow missed getting a shot of my pair in the black! Doh!). As well, these are unrigged mesh, made to fit SLink flat feet, or Maitreya flat feet. For all you male SLink feet wearers, don’t fret, as there is a pair of really nice men’s sandals available too. All this goodness at only L$10 a piece! Love it! Here is the direct TP to the Dark Fae cart (although they are now boards, which make for a way better shopping experience), and I have included a shot of the cart so you can pre-decide which colour you want before having to brave the mad rush of AV’s that are happily shopping at the sale 🙂

That’s all for now, until next time, TTFN!

Cart Sale – Dark Fae

Dark Fae Heat Wave

I can’t believe the weekend has flown by already! I hope everyone enjoyed it. I don’t know about you but sometimes all I want in the world is to put on my favorite jeans, the comfy ones, not the ones that make my butt look good, and a comfy casual shirt. My love for fashion aside, there are days, even in sl, when I just want to look comfortable! I also recently saw a photo with a quote that said something along the lines of “If I could find a job that paid you for snarkiness, I’d be rich!” I had to laugh at that because yeah, I can be super snarky. With that in mind, and desire for some comfy casual attire, these tops at the Dark Fae Cart for the Heat Wave event are just the thing, comfy casual, and a little snarky! These vested “Say it With Style” tops at the Dark Fae Cart have a different saying per color. Of course the tops are mesh, and they do include several sizes and an alpha layer. These are a great for a playful casual look. Each color is just 10 lindens at the Dark Fae Cart. Don’t wait, the Heat Wave event is ending soon!

Step Right Up And Enjoy The Show.

awesome stunt show 1

As a young boy, I witnessed a man in a raggedy, sequined outfit jump over a pair of trailers on his dirt bike, much to the delight of the crowd. Years later, here I am on the shoulder of Route 23, promoting the debut of my own daredevil show. I chose to wear a group gift from TentatioN. It is very casual and sporty, but with the camouflage pattern on the cargo pants pockets and in the lower corner of the shirt, it also says, “I am a warrior.” Sometimes, it’s best to let your clothes speak for you (unless they are going to say “I’m a dork”, then there is no reason to give them a megaphone). This, however, says volumes in a positive, masculine manner.  The gift comes with a color change hud, providing four color choices for both the mesh shirt and the pants. TentatioN is not a free group, though. It will set you back 30L, but this outfit in four colors is worth it.

awesome stunt show 2

I grew up in Los Tres Dolores New Mexico , a town named for a mystical formation of three cacti. For my death-defying entry into the world of show business, I will jump over that local landmark in the greatest riding lawnmower jump in the history of mankind! At first glance a lawnmower it may not appear to be the best choice for soaring through the air, but isn’t a riding mower essentially a helicopter that has been flipped upside down? This very detailed (and shockingly fast) mower is the current FREE group gift from Knight Performance. This store along with the one which shares the building with them (Surplus Motors) are great sources for beautifully detailed vehicles in SL. Both stores are free groups and offer many Midnight Manias, group gifts and discounts. If you have any interest in vehicles on Second Life, you should seriously consider joining them.

If you are going to let your clothes do the speaking for you, this Rockabilly Hunt prize jacket from The Dark Fae positively screams, “Rebel.” Its cool stand-up collar and retro styling including a must see graphic on its’ back are perfect for people who don’t follow the rules, like me (even if it’s because I can’t be bothered to read them). The Rebel Soul Jacket sports versions with and without the t-shirt and comes in three sizes, plus an additional two sizes in fitmesh. Cool style is timeless, and this jacket is perfectly cool! This Rockabilly Hunt prize is not free, but at only 2L, it’s a bargain. These jeans are extraordinary as well, coming from a quickly expanding store called Illi. Currently on their Midnight Mania board, these Midnight Open Belt Jeans are nicely textured and look great, and a big surprise was the texture hud that came with them. Illi gives us 8 denim colors, 4 belt colors and 4 metal accent textures for the belt. That is excellent versatility for a free gift! It does carry a small logo, but it is easy to overlook, given the generosity of this Midnight Mania prize. Also worth noting are my mesh white leather sneakers, fresh from the Wayward Hunt. The prize, from the store United Colors, comes in both men’s and ladies’ sizes and with that touch of blue on them they look fantastic for a FREE hunt gift. I was truly impressed!

Well, I dressed for success and I did everything right but sometimes that just isn’t enough. Sometimes in life the ramp just isn’t high enough, or maybe the wind shifts, or maybe a lawn mower just isn’t meant to fly. A person could drive themselves crazy sitting back and reflecting over those kinds of things, but not me. I am on to my next great adventure and I hope you will be there with me.—–WHC Riler

The living and the dead

The Twisted Hunt is a shadow … a Spectre…. a ghost…  pale cubes spinning driving us mad.  There are few hints, a thousand decoys…. But, oh the gifts and Gachas and side games.  You only have until April 5th to find all the little cubes.

The Dark Fae loves shoes!

It’s hard to believe that the Cart sale has already  been going strong for two weeks because I keep finding nifty things to show off.  Today it’s a treasure trove of shoes from The Dark Fae! I have to give a special shout out to Dark Fae for stocking their Cart with not one but SIX pairs of boots for the gentlemen!

Fae_003

These are the ‘Hard Working Boots’ in distressed brown. Now, I know they’re men’s boots but I tossed them on anyway to show you. I know, I know… I’m a weirdo. 😛

The ladies have a gorgeous pair of shoes on the Cart too. These are the ‘Stompy Shoes’ for SLink Mid feet in white. They also come in pink, green, gothic red and blue! But Corvi Ashdene, owner of The Dark Fae tells me that there is a “ZOMG Fat Pack” that comes with a HUD that will let you change the gem colors, strap colors AND shoe colors that you can purchase at the main store. You can grab the Land Mark for the main store right on the Cart.

The Dark Fae @ The Cart Sale; or, A Whole Lotta L$10 Love!

Hello lovelies!! I’ve missed you all. I know I have been a bit absent this week, but it has been a little hectic for me, and the one night I managed to log in and post a post, SL starting acting weirdo on me and I could not attach anything! It’s just been one of those weeks 🙂 I have survived though, and I am here to show you a bevy of L$10 goodness. Although not planned, it has turned out that everything I am showing you tonight, is L$10. How funny is that 🙂

darkfae4

So, I shall start with the one piece, mesh, Little Miss Magic legwarmers and shorts combo that you can find on The Dark Fae Cart, at the ongoing Wash Cart Sale. I am sure most have you have been already, but if not, and if you are a fan of comfy looking clothing, you really need to make a special trip just for these legwarmers with attached shorts.  I think they go with the season perfectly…the shorts are for those of us holding on to summer, and the legwarmers are for those who are embracing the shortened days and chill to the air. The best of both worlds I tell ya! There are 4 different short colours that you can choose from, each L$10 of course, and each pair comes with a texture change hud for the legwarmers. I’ve taken a few pictures of some of the textures, but there are 16 colours/textures in total to choose from. Those of you of the male persuasion, there is something on this cart for you as well, take a look at the end of my post for pictures of the cart to see everything available. You have until Oct 8th to make it to the Wash Cart Sale, so don’t wait, before you know it, it will go *poof*.

When putting my outfit together, I knew I wanted sneakers. Remembering the cute sequined sneakers I had shown you all HERE, I decided to check out CC Design’s Marketplace store again to see if a pair struck my fancy. The super cute Twirl Turquoise Sneakers jumped out immediately, and wouldn’t you know it, there is a Twirl Turquoise tank top in the same fun pattern! I know you do not have to match your shoes to anything specific in an outfit, but I couldn’t resist. Both the shoes, and top are L$10 each, and I just couldn’t say no with the great combination of colours. You know how I am 😛

Needing to top my look off with something fun and shiny, I found the *MM* Whale Jewelry Set, also on the Marketplace, and also only L$10!. The metal is texture change by clicking on the pieces, and everything is modifiable, so it is super easy to adjust to fit. The whale is just adorable, and I love the retro look of the earrings (I swear I had a pair that looked just like this when I was a kid, only in pink…I won’t say how long ago that was,. Suffice it to say…it would be considered retro.)

L$10…it is such a great price point. You get great items, and they feel like a steal, while still helping to support the creators who have brought them to you. It’s a win-win in every sense. I hope you enjoyed my L$10 post, but I must be off, there are more deals calling my name! Until next time, TTFN *waves*

The Dark Fae @ The Cart Wash Sale

One of the great things about events like The Cart Wash Sale is that you find out about stores and designers you’ve never heard of before. I am having a ball discovering new stores. One of these is The Dark Fae. I have to admit that I don’t usually shop for fantasy type things but I was pleasantly surprised at what the designer has to offer. Corvi Ashdene, Owner of The Dark Fae, informed me that she has only recently started making clothing. She is doing a great job so far making well constructed and real life looking stuff. The outfit I am wearing is really for a male but it can be unisex also.

I am sitting in the awesome Flutternabbed! chair, where I was floating up and down under the power of the giant butterfly atop the chair. It makes for a magical moment.
