dark chocolate

Paisley Daisy offers Sweet St. Chocolate as group gift for September, a gorgeous earthy dress for the autumn.

Joeylin has such a wonderful touch with the textures.  The gold filigree about the shoulders and the lace at the midriff and hem are just the perfect fine detail.

Feuilles necklace and earrings from EarthStones is a perfect golden complement to this lovely dress.

Paisley Daisy has long had some amazing designs, I’m so glad that they’ve been expanding into fitmesh.  I’m feeling almost ready for the leaves to fall from the trees!
Almost.

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

This “outfit” if I can call it that, has been lurking in my inventory waiting for me to get up the courage to post it lol.  It come in two versions, the “nice” version shown here, and a “naughty” version without the mid bra panels.  Sizes are fitmesh for Freya, Isis, Venus, Lara, Hourglass, Physique, eBody, and TMP.  There are no classic sizes.

I must admit, while I’m not a fan of the style, the detail and rigging are superb, which is what I’m come to expect from this designer.  Great job, and certainly worth a look for those of you into this style!

Tara on the beach

Why do stores give out group gifts?  I figure two good reasons — to thank their customers, and to encourage new customers into their stores.  I’ve gladly just discovered {FAFA} ethnic clothing, and you can be sure I’ll be back!

Alaska Metro <3‘s Daytime is a lovely general-purpose makeup set, eyeshadow and lippy for any casual occasion. 

Off we go, skipping down the sand — chasing every moment of Summer that’s left.

Happy Days

So in case you don’t know, Precious Designs and Rowena’s share a store, and while I was there the other day, I grabbed the gifts for the MGSN group too 🙂

This is a great little dress, and it comes in standard sizes plus fitmesh for Physique, Hourglass, Freya, Isis, Venus, Lara, and TMP.  It also comes with a five color HUD, but guess which color I like? 🙂   At the store, right next to the dress, are a matching set of heels for Lara, Slink, and Belleza high feet.  The heels come with  a HUD to let you match them to the dress colors.  A wonderful gift!

My hairstyle is by Tableau Vivant, and while I usually sport fairly long hair, I love short styles too.  I must have worn A&A’s Serafine for 18 months to the exclusion of everything else before the jellydoll update to the viewer made most prim hairs far too expensive to wear.  This hairstyle was a gift for SL’s 14th birthday, and it comes with a full fat pack of color HUDs!

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a post on an outfit from Rowena’s Designs!  I haven’t been there for a little while until something caught my attention on the SLF&O group chat the other day.  I’m glad I went because I picked up this gorgeous little dress that comes with a six color HUD too!

The mesh is really well done, and it comes in standard mesh sizes, plus fitmesh for classic, Belleza, Hourglass, Physique, Maitreya, and TMP.

I thought about it a little more… and it’s true, there are many who fill my life with joy and love and laughter.  My Blue, my sister, my friends, the dear heart who helps me edit some images every now and again….   I have a hard time imagining where I would be without each and every one of them

But then, too, sometimes… you need your priorities right.  If you don’t love yourself, how would you expect anyone else to?  Stretch your wings and fly.

Luane’s World poses are on sale right now, 50% off many lovely things!

Be your dream.  Have a wonderful Friday, and a beautiful weekend, everyone!  Mahalo!  A hui hou!

Caught in the setting sun

I’m in trouble — or my bank account is.  I’ve found a merchant doing what I’ve been waiting for for ages: combine the beauty of mesh and the motion of flexi in the same skirt!  Nur from ALB Dream Fashion features just this:  a mesh top and base skirt, and flexi skirt add-ons that swish and flow as you dance!  WOW!

I know there’s been some well written posts about the dearth of fitmesh for Belleza bodies lately, and while I don’t have Belleza, I certainly sympathise.  Nur comes with fitmesh for all three Belleza bodies, TMP, both SLink and Maitreya.  Well done!

I think I’m going to have to go back to ALB and spend some more money, there are some beautiful flexi skirts there!

Mahalo!  A hui hou!

A lot of what you see me post on the blog is free (or costs very little if it’s a hunt prize).  I wrote an entire post on the “Most of this is free” concept.  Unfortunately, some free things come along very rarely, and one that you rarely see is a good set of jeans.  However, as this post shows, sometimes, if you wait long enough, all things come your way 🙂

This outfit includes the top and jeans, and both come in standard mesh sizes with fitmesh for just about every body you can imagine.  The package also includes some platform heels for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza high feet which are just waaaay too high for me (think 5″ platforms and 10″ heels eeeps!) but you might like them 🙂

The texturing on the top, and especially the jeans is fantastic!  Now I have a set of ripped mid waist to go along with my fav boyfriend jeans!  They’ll surely see lots of use!
