After-the-holidays cleanup

I’m still working my way through the bounty of gifts and promotional priced items that I received during the Christmas season in SL. Needless to say, my inventory is overloaded and needs to get back to some semblance of organization. As I go through and attempt to organize, I’ll try and share some of the highlights.

The Hair and Hat above  was a group gift from Truth, called “Snow Kitty” I love how the hair poofs out from under the hat! The sweater is from Bang Bang – an opening giftie for the Oh my Stars! Sim. The pants are from Havana Nights, and the coat from FIR & MNA. The skin is called Camilla and is from Natural Beauty – formerly known as Tik Tok.. The Pose is by !Bang.

Brief update and Seasons Hunt

Sorry for the lack of recent posts. I have a little project I’m working on that is taking up most of my time in SL. I’m very excited about it, and I hope to be able to post some more information about it soon.

I did take some time off to do the Seasons Hunt, and it has been a pleasant hunt experience. Very few of the hunt objects were hidden in difficult places (in fact, many of them were extremely obvious).

There was one store (name withheld) that I completely avoided because it is huge and,  in  a previous hunt, the owner(s)/management  made it extremely difficult to find their gift (which IMO ended up not being worth the time everyone had to invest to find it). There were a few others I didn’t do because I knew the gift was something I wasn’t interested in.

Overall, the quality of the items is really good on this hunt. Yes, there are some gimmicky  autumn-related things, but mostly the gifts are  wearable and usable items, nicely designed, and many qualifying for a permanent spot in your inventory.  Special kudos to Ingenue (for a very cute dress) and LISP Bazaar (for a very nice set of two easy chairs with the typical LISP attention to quality and detail). There are others that I should likely mention as well, so let me just add that if you’re thinking of doing a hunt, this is a good one to go for. The aggravation factor is low (with just a few exceptions), and the prizes are more than worth the time you’ll likely put into it. Here’s a link to the official hunt blog.

Jill Closing Sale + Platinum Hunt + Vinyl Cafe giftie

I haven’t been a major fan of the clothing at  Jill, but wow, handing out freebies when your store is closing is a very nice “thank you” to your customers. And what is not free is heavily marked down. Hurry over, because the store is closing August 11th.  The outfit on the left is one of three freebies. The top on the right (with scarf) is only $50L.

BoHo HoBo #2: boho fashion

Recapping from my earlier post: I went to BoHo HoBo earlier this week after reading about the shop on Alicia Chenaux’s blog.> I absolutely fell in love with the clothes, and proceeds go to community-based education in Pakistan and Afghanistan, especially focused on girls, via the Central Asia Institute. Yesterday I blogged about a yummy crushed velvet frock coat and a coordinating mini dress…today I’m focusing on separates.

Top hat

Last night I was having fun making an outfit with  some of this week’s $69L Humpday Madness finds. From the moment I saw the A-Bomb  suspender pants, I wanted to pair them with a cami or strapless top instead of the included shirt.

Hair and Hat: Dark Mouse Queenie 2 in Chocolate ($69L Humpday Madness Special)
Necklace: Rose Choker (Color Change) A Netherworld, from my inventory
Top: W dot red camisole from XStreetSL.com
Pants: A-Bomb Puttin’ on the Ritz suspender pants ($69L Humpday Madness Special)
Skin: MangoMango Daddy-O Pale skin with freckles ($69L Humpday Madness Special)

From the weekend

Two very different leg revealing looks from this weekend. These looks feature dollarbie poses from doll (larger images on the wall) so get them while they’re available!

Dress Gato Monster Dress

And here’s another retro inspired look, all in shades of purple.

AY.LinE was having a big sale on hair and I picked up 3 or 4 styles there. I think this one is Miyako. I really like the short windswept look so this is one of my new favorites. The scarf is from PACADI Jasha…and the news there is that there now is a new small shop carrying their previous bestsellers (linked at their name).  The sweater and pants are from mijm.t, where I went hunting out something else, and came upon these great, low price cropped pants instead. The shoes are a dollarbie at enkythings.  The top underneath the sweater is the awesome-textured FK Virtures Retro Dreams Corset that I’ve used in other outfits.
