Migraine Be Damned (freebies, Dollarbies, Cheapies, Fat Packies :-))

Posted on

Loordes of London is a shop that does really classic solid items of fashion.  It’s like the Marks and Spencer of SL which means the clothes are both excellently textured and fitted then add to that so reasonably priced!  Maja Signa (coleen.macarthur) has so many of her items set out at events and even in her Mainshop at such reasonable prices and they’re worth every Linden.

Another great thing about Loordes of London is that they add new items to their stock frequently so I would really reccomend you at least slap the sub boards so you can keep upto date on the new stuff and the hunts and special events they regularly take part in.

There isn’t a vast stock here and a lot of it is non mesh but don’t let that put you Mesh Heads off as everything is top quality.  There are some great shoes and boots and standing here writing this I couldn’t resist snagging the Nottingham boots fat pack, again only 10Lds for omg yet another 13 shades! Non SLink which tbh when it comes to boots I don’t think that matters very often.

However there is a selection of mesh items as well and this simple sweater dress in the above picture is one of them.  This one comes in a total of 10 colours.  A simple scrunchy knit looking sweater dress.

Urbduskboots

I also picked up this Ugg type boots, Cheshire Snow Boots which are a cross between slippers and boots.  Unless I’ve counted wrong there is a total of 17 shades in this pack!

London

I scrolled through all my old posts because this is another dress which is now on offer for only 10Lds at this sales room I have already previously blogged.    I didn’t pay that little when I first bought this dress but knowing Loordes of London it would have been such a bargain price in the first place.  Not the best picture to show the colours etc  but since I still have this dress I know it comes as a 1 piece and it’s a simple shirt/skirt combo.  Very early settler in style and if you like a bit of RP or authenticity in your SL then a great outfit.  Not sure if the 10Ld offer is a Fat pack like the other items but even as a single colour (teal and dark brown) at such a cheap price it doesn’t matter.

If you walk out of this side of the build to the other you will see some artwork again on offer.  I actually bought a picture from here which is the first time in years I’ve bought an actual SL picture but it’s Folksy style will be excellent in my home I’ve just got to find where it’s disapeared in my invent LOL.  Lots of different styles here from framed beachy prints to a very recognisable style of an American artist whos name I can’t remember.  Deinately worth a visit as well.

Faith found this shop a while ago but this is the first time I’ve managed to pop in and loved this hair and loved the fact it’s on offer for only 55Lds.  Although it is resizable the bow isn’t recolorable.  Sorry a rotten photo because you can’t see the back or anything like that but a demo is available for you to try.  I’m working on one heck of a Migraine here and since this hair is only at this price for a short time I thought Migraine or not I must get it posted.  If you do miss out on it then check out the next piccie for a Marketplace Dollarbies from Cheveux.

And then I went to the mainshop to grab the LM and found that there is in fact a Free to Join Group Gift so yet again I couldn’t leave SL till I’d taken a piccie of that.

Free

Goodies overload today I think.

PS the bows on this hair come with a texture changing hud so you have 4 options or you can wear the hair without the bows.

Ignore me.

Posted on

This isn’t a flat backdrop but  a piece of “abandoned land” which seemed perfect for my next post.  So the reason you need to “ignore me” is because what I’m wearing is just a TINY token of whats on offer at R.iceli.  Honestly there is a MASSIVE selection of clothes, mesh, skirts, SLink shoes, boots, tops, jeans, jackets, skins, hairs and on and on and every single items is a token 15Lds.  So you may not want anything that I’m wearing in this picture but you will miss out on some seriously excellent clothes if you don’t pop over yourself to check it out.ignore

As it happens there is 2 big events going on at the same moment and what you will see is in the Ricielli shops (LM given for both)  is a whole load of pink stars and black heart balloons and each only costs 15Lds.  Fortunately each balloon or star is numbered and you can check the big boards to see what it contains so if you just want the 1 item or stock up with a whole load of clothes you get what you want.

When you meander around you will find a treasure trove because Fhara K Ricielli the founder of Riicielli has unbelievably put every item from previous events in a room on their own.  Again each item is only 15Ld and the posters are there so you can see exactly what you’re getting.  Very generous and this is great stuff.  The texturing, fit and look is shop quality but remember to check out all of the new items on the racks.  The first thing I saw when I went in was the nicest jumper I’ve seen for ages and if it wasn’t for the fact I’m a cheap biatch, and have a stuffed invent, I would have snatched it up.

Hair

PS this is Sid, the hair I mentioned in my previous post.  It’s such a recognisable hair that as soon as you see others wearing it you know where exactly it came from.  This is one of her unisexed hairs and I do believe Baylen has already modelled it.  I will check out if this is out anywhere at a discounted price but even if it isn’t at a standard 250lds for her colour packs Mina hairs are more than reasonable.

PS I also forgot to mention that lots of items come with more than 1 shade, so for example the leather trousers I’m wearing come in 4 different colour options the shoes I’m wearing but you can’t see come with 3 colour options it doesn’t really get any better.

Firstly the Non Freebie.  I read a note that Sid, the punky edgy hair from Mina, was being offered at the latest Kustom 9 event so I popped over but I was wrong,  it was not Sid but Lena and I’m not sure if I’ve blogged this hair before or not.  I’d be shocked if I hadn’t because I love hair that has some movement to it and since it’s on special offer at the Kustom 9 event I thought  I’d let you know so you can pop over and try on the demo for yourself and maybe treat yourself before it ends up in her shop at full price.

Because this is the paid for item I’ve used nothing but the sims Windlight setting, notice how adorable the PumeC skin looks even in a non Nams setting.  Can I brag and say this is how MY RL hair looks on a windy day, all blown over to one side and the randomness of the hair ends adds to the realistic look of this hair.  I only wish my hair had the same sheen as this one does it looks like something from a hair conditioner ad, so lovely.

Cocourb

The Freebies are everything else, the top, jeans and Union Jack boots.  All shop quality on their own and all in standard sizing.

Baby

Rotten shot of the dress n boots but since I know you will be going over to grab the jeans, sweater, boots from the top picture you may as well grab this simple black mesh dress.  That simple neckline looks great with a collar, I tried one on from my invent,  and leggings etc or to keep it simple.  As always even with Coco’s freebies this is shop quality so well textured.  I just wanted to show off my baby.

What you can’t see is the boots.  Simple grey strapped unisexed boots and since this and the Union Jack ones come in 3 sizes I’m pretty sure that they will fit a male AV as well.  Since this is a Free to join group it will cost you nothing to try out.

OH! a last shot because I was having fun and so why not:-)

All the Freeness and there is more there,  comes from …..shop … Top quality and unique clothing mainly for women but there is a small mens depo with items that will make you stand out.

I try to vary my post and not have skin following skin but because this FREE skin is Lavender I thought I’d just go for it especially when it includes SLink and Lola Appliers.

purple skin

Don’t worry you don’t need glasses I blurred the main part of the picture but I wanted to show you as much skin as poss so you can see the skin colour.  This was taken in my Nams setting and I think she’s very pretty.

And then I went map hopping and stumbled, finally, upon this.

Autum

Another FREE to join Group gift in fact there are 3 of them waiting to be snagged.  I did try on the brown knitted dress and was most surprised that it also was mesh.  A simple, well textured skirt and top combo.

Such a short post as it’s getting RL late.  So LMs given and you will have to join the groups but both are free.

I love it when I think a group is going to be expensive to join but when you check it out you realise that the cost is just a token and in this case it only cost me 25Lds!!! to join the Group.

Bottle

I’m pretty sure that there are 3 Girl Group Gifts and nice to see an equal amount of male Group Gifts out as well.

Bottle 2

This is the same sim as my previous post about the Princess Bed.   Apart from a small shop in the centre this whole watery sim is set out for people to use at their leisure either for photo taking or just hanging out.  Whats even more generous is that even though there are props and poses for anyone if you join the FREE group you can rezz your own prop/pose.  I know I’m stating the obvious esp to our regular readers but it goes without saying watch the prim count of what you rezz and clean up.  Also I think although nudity isn’t frowned on I believe the  owner would probably prefer you keep your wibbly bits covered.

The shop itself,8f8 MP Store, has rows of Gachas and although this isn’t a massive selection everyone will know the decor items from here as they’re such amazingly well textured, low primmed items of decor and so reasonably priced you see these props everywhere from people’s homes and gardens to sims that invite people in to use for themselves.  I’ve also noted that the Free excellent chairs from a previous post are still there.

The sim itself is owned by black cloud (theblackcloud.oh) and she deserves a pat on the back for allowing anyone to use her sim because for every sim which is laid out with so many props and poses and free for all to use takes up a lot of time and also a lot of money and I don’t think people who do this sort of thing get the thanks they deserve.

Bottle 3

So back to the skins.  The one  I am wearing is called Maartje and she  comes with a lot of Appliers ie SLink Hands & Feet, WowMeh, Tango, Loud mouth, Phat Azz.  One skin just has the SLink Hands & Feet Applier and the other just the Lola Tangoes.  Have to confess I don’t seem to be able to get the SLink Hands/feet one to work on the second skin I could of course use the SLink Hud and match up the skin colour myself but I’m lazy and spoilt with all the PumeC skins and Appliers I already have.  These skins come from 7Deadly s(K)ins and as mentioned t cost ONLY 25Lds to join the group which is a massive bargain for what you get.

There are 2 LMS one for the front of the shop and the other for the Group Gifts and Discount section.  If that LM doesn’t take you straight there then there is a TP to both the Group Gifts and another floor for mens skins.

I love finding things in SL that reduce me to a simpering girly girl and this Princess Bed does it for me.

Princess bed

We all love some fluffy froo froo and this covers it all.

Princess bed1

I used nothing but the sims windlight settings and no photo fiddling as the texturing on this Princess bed is just gorgeous in all lights.

Princess bed3

A suprising cheap price at only 128Lds and at 15prims for all of the details so reasonable.

Princess bed2

My only complaint is that this shop is tiny and so so far there isn’t a massive amount of items but what little is there is beautiful and detailed.

Although these photos weren’t taken on the actual sim the sim the oUvUo shop is set on is a lovely place.  Watery with only 2 shops and places for people to sit and hang about in.  Some real bargains to be had from both this shop and the other one, I’ve picked up a beach chair and swim ring for only 10Lds each but each shop has a selection of Lucky Boards.

Shock, NON Mina hair!

Posted on

Tee*fy is a place I know well and believe it or not I actually have some of Azure (azure.electricteeth) hair from here so yes I do wear more than Mina Hair LOL.

win1

This dress is non mesh and yet still quality wearable  non mesh.  The blending of the skirt layers is seamless and has that light floaty fabric look to it and the belt under the bust line is a lovely touch.

win2

If you’re a mesh head then this is the dress for you.  It’s got more shading on the dress and collar than I’ve shown.  Naughty of me since these come from a paid to join group but they’re so worth the token 50Lds to  esp when you check out the bags! Both bags are also Group Gifts and I ADORE THEM.  In the bottom picture I didn’t use a pose I simply stood and snapped so you can see how the pose that comes inbuilt in the bag is a nice simple and realistic one even when you’re standing.  The top bag can be resized and the bottom bag comes with 2 versions this over the arm one and a much larger one than hangs off your shoulder.  Simply adorable.

Both the hairs also come from Tee*fy and if I remember correctly they were both bought as special FLF Offers.  Thats Fifty Linden Fridays to the uninitiated and if you haven’t signed up to this weekly event shame on you so sign up for it now as it’s Friday.  You don’t have to join the Free FLF group as a lot of the shops which are involved with it send the details out in their notices but getting it through the group is a bit quicker.  The offers you get can be amazing such as these hairs and if I think about it 90% of my SLink shoes are purchased from FLF offers.

Now that I’m stood in Tee*fys grabbing the LM I can see she has a 60Ld hair set out for sale which is so similar to the first picture so if you love that hair then here is a chance for you to pop in and grab yourself something very similar.  The Group Gifts are just inside on the inside wall and there is also a big sign to take you to the old/sculpted items department.  I did pop up and as a mesh head not a lot grabbed my attention but there is a pair of leggings there I might just grab as I know the perfect top for them so you too may want to check that that place as well.
