A number of months ago a store named [Red Room] closed its in-world store.  I used to visit there regularly looking for midnight mania boards, which were always worthwhile.  They are still on marketplace, but their in-world store link is very out of date.

While cleaning up my inventory (a never-ending task!) I came across an unopened box from them!  I opened it up and found this wonderful outfit!

The top and skirt are separates, and include fitmesh sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Lara, Physique, eBody, TMP, Curvy, and Fine.  Also included are HUDs for both the top and the skirt with 9 colors for the top and 11 colors for the skirt!

And this is another tricky skirt to wear due to the open strappy nature of it.  I have a nude modesty patch for situations like this, and that may be your best approach.  Or you could just be daring 🙂

Parliyah Top

I’ve told you before I’m a sucker for things laced like corsets.  Among other things, I have a corset tail, I recently picked up my corset laced jeans, and looking through my unopened folder today, I came across this corset laced top!  Yay!

This was a free gift at the Holiday Shop & Hop I wrote about the other day.  It’s only in fitmesh for Lara.  It also has a HUD allowing you to color the ribbons and metal.  A very nice little giftie from a new-to-me creator.

While at the Holiday Shop & Hop event the other day, I came across this swimsuit.  At the event, the fatpack containing 14 colors was discounted from L$550 to only L$300.  I had to get it.

It’s only sized for Maitreya Lara. And while it’s a swimsuit, it’s sort of organic enough to be used as the basis for something interesting like an SF outfit or something.

The fit is well done, although with some really skimpy things like this, wearing it at a G-rated sim would have to be discouraged 🙂

Holiday Shop & Hop

This is the last day of the Shop & Hop event!  If you haven’t been there, you should run over as quickly as possible.  There are a number of FREE gifts from some of the best designers in SL just waiting for you, five of which I’m showing you today!

First up are these fab thigh boots.  They come in fits for Lara, Hourglass, and Physique, and include a four color HUD with two shades in neutral, and a green and a red.  The buckles at the back are well done, and you can see them at the end of the post.

Next up, the tied top comes with fitmesh sizes for Lara, Freya, Isis, Venus, Physique, and Hourglass.  It also has a HUD to allow color change of the fabric, laces, and metal grommets, with get this!  35 colors for the fabric, 35 colors for the laces, and 7 metals for the grommets!  What an awesome gift!

As a redhead, I tend to use neutral makeup options, and since I got my new mesh head, I’ve been looking around for a neutral lippy similar to what I wore with my system head.  The ones that came with the mesh head are not quiet dark enough for my liking.  So I was happy to find a lippy in neutrals as a gift at the event.  It’s a tiny bit too dark, but it’s far better then the ones I’ve been wearing recently.  Included in the pack are three shades in the matte shown here, and a gloss version of each too.  Also included is the matching eyeshadow.  It comes with appliers for Catwa, LeLutka, and Omega, and also on system tattoo layers.

And what can I say about this hairstyle?  It’s a fabulously generous gift, with four different rigged mesh options: the normal hair, a “breeze” version where there is some movement in your hair, a materials enabled version that reflects the light, and one with both the breeze and materials enabled (shown).  It has two HUDs one offering solid colors and the other ombrés, with 56 colors each ranging from dark as night brunette to silvery white, and all the colors in beween!  That’s 112 colors girls!  WOW!  Now, having said that, it comes with a hair band with two snowflakes on it, but fortunately, the hairstyle is modify.  So with some minimal building skills you can hide the hair band and snowflakes by texturing them 100% transparent, letting you wear the hair all year round instead of just for the holidays.  Don’t forget to take a backup if you’re going to try this, just in case you mess it up.

Lastly, the necklace I’m wearing is also one of four gifts on offer from this designer.  It has fits for Lara, Slink, and classic avatars, which is really nice.  It also has a HUD that allows you to select one of four designs for the middle of the coin, and one of six metal textures.

And finally, here’s an over the shoulder shot so you can see the boot buckles.

Whew!  I’m pooped after writing all that!  See you tomorrow xoxo

No More Leggings

Another Entice Advent calender giftie today!

The top and the leggings are separates and come in a plain and lace top, and plain and fabric textured leggings.  Sizes include fitmesh for Freya, Isis, Venus, Lara, Physique, and Hourglass.  These are pretty green, but there are a range of more muted color available at the store.

Oh and Happy New Year!

In your dreams

This is Entice’s Advent gift from Day 7.  I’ve photographed these bottoms before in a different color, but the salmon is very nice!  (It’s nearly pink, sshhhhh!)

The top and bottoms are separates and come in fitmesh for Lara, Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, and Physique.  They make for a wonderful set of PJs 🙂  The “Dream Girl” writing is on the back of the panties too, and there is also a plain version without the writing, but it’s always is nice to remind that special person 🙂

Mignon

When I saw the name of the fabulous dress from Maitreya that was one of seven Advent gifts for their customers, I went “steak? what?!?”  But of course, “filet” is the steak part, and the translation of “mignon” is “small and pretty; dainty”, which I find a very pleasing name for this dress!

Unsurprisingly, as this dress is made by Maitreya, the only size is fitmesh for Lara.

 

The matching shoes were also one of the seven gifts from Maitreya.  The texturing is fantastic!

This is the Entice Advent Calendar gift for Day 24!

The top and the skirt are separates.  Fitmesh sizes include Lara, Hourglass, Physique, Isis, Freya, and Venus.  There are also two different versions, the normal one I’m wearing here, and a version where the colours are dirtied up.  Both are very nicely done.  Entice has certainly been nice to their customers this Advent!

The top suffers from a tiny bit of clipping at the lower strap while dancing but is fine for walking around in, although you better not wear it at a G-rated sim 🙂

Cat’s Meow

Hiding in my inventory I found this lovely sheer gold catsuit.  I’d tried it on before when I originally found it, but it wasn’t so impressive over my normal skin.  So, searching for inspiration, let’s wear it on my leopardess!

The catsuit is available as system layers and also comes with appliers for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, Omega, and TMP.

The leopard avi is from Catseye, and comes with a really nicely detailed skin for both male and female avis including Omega skin appliers.  It also comes with shapes for both genders, and a curvy “Catty” female shape, plus the ears and tail to complete the look.  The sheer gold catsuit looks great against the dark skin.  Reow!
