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.

Whippet and Buck is a Second Life brand for which I have gradually developed a great appreciation.Many of the store’s pieces reflect vintage influences. When I was putting together this outfit, I thought of the period around the turn of the 20th century…Gibson Girls and the movie “Somewhere in Time.” All my avi needs is a bustle and a longer skit, perhaps some lace up boots instead of the pumps, and she’s so there!

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.
Also featured: ploom Dot Hair from Platinum Hunt, Vinyl Cafe Group Gift Shoes, HeartSick skin from the Platinum Hunt. Pose by Doll.

The LaGyo Crystal Long Necklace was a previous offering at The Dressing Room.

I finally got a skybox rezzed above my new land last night (you can read more about that at 117prims). The skybox I chose to rez wasn’t quite tall enough to handle my photo studio, so I improvised, moving some lights down for the time being. Wow…there’s a lot less lag up there. Here’s the Cupcakes dress I featured yesterday; I seem to have so much more detail on it now.
I’m trying to keep up with anything interesting on the fashion front as well, although my time to do so is currently limited. I managed to get to some of the Hump Day Madness specials and the Car Wash Cart Sale yesterday. I landed on what I think of as the “main” Car Wash sim and was pretty underwhelmed over what I found. Then I went over the bridge to the other sim…and wow…Ingenue, A-Bomb, Artelliri, HeartSick, Ear Candy and more. Definitely worth spending some time over on that side of the sale! For those who aren’t familiar with this event, all items on the carts are $10L and lower. Items below that are from the Car Wash Cart sale are indicated as such.

So, the Summer of Love Fair was supposed to have a preview for participating bloggers tonight. I teleported over there after getting the notice, and promptly fell through the sky and landed on the ground…somewhere (I’m not allowed to tell just where). There was a building nearby and I went in. I think I was in someone’s home (sorry!). Then I walked towards the next building I saw, but apparently I stumbled upon some private land and got the automated warning that I better get lost quick or else. Two people were nearby and one said hi to me. I apologized for intruding and hit the teleport again. This time I landed beside a blinking ban line that said I wasn’t allowed to access the parcel. Looking on the map, I saw an area nearby where a lot of people were gathering, but I was not allowed to go there. So I went home and pouted, for a while. Because it’s been THAT KIND OF DAY. In real life too. I won’t go into that. But I will remind you that the fair is opening to the general public very soon, and promises to have some great items available from some of Second Life’s best and most popular shops, and the whole point is to raise awareness about mental health, which is such an important issue. I have gotten a few preview pieces…in fact, I was wearing some of the items when I attempted to get to the blogger event…so, here’s a peak while I pout!
Alexchol Bellini Shorts in Blue, Summerland Tank Top in Pink, Sea Breeze Bikini Top (all will be available at the Summer of Love Fair!)
Not from fair: Bang Bang Scorned Skin, Gos Espadrilles in Fuchsia (this color is on special!), Lamb Sleepyhead Hair in Blood Fruit. Pose by LoveSick.
