I didn’t need it, I shouldn’t have bought it, I don’t have anywhere to put it and yet….I couldn’t resist it!
Over the years I have lived in many homes but all have been along the lines of retro, old, shabby chic etc and over the years I have amassed a lot of old Victoriana style items including ovens but when I saw this full sized great detailed old Victorian Range from Storax Tree and I just had to have it. It’s 24 prims, comes without the accessories. 200Lds and worth both the prims and the price. This is a great room filler. For those of you into RPing this is amazing and for those who aren’t but love the old style a great look can be created.
Quickly digs out my sexy lola tango maids outfit so I can pose next to it just so you can see the size of the range which is the exact size an old range would be. Even if your not into the look still check out StoraxTree which I know well because it usually has a hunt or in this case 2 hunts going on and best of all check out the range because sitting on it is the Menu Mania Heaven Hud (MMHH letters) for 5Lds you get a cool AFK prop pose but splash out a bit more and the 49Lds for the Birds and the Bee’s hunt (a big bird) and you get an amazing over sized shoe for you to pose on.
And then I spotted the “clippie mats” which made me squeal. I come from the North East of the UK and we call them clippie mats but most people call them rag rugs. The texturing is so realistic of fabric strips woven into bright garden patternsand only 50Lds.
The Sexy Maid outfit comes from Gathering which is a shop for the bustiest of the busty. It has a range of clothing not just for Lolas but all the boobs out there. Yes it has the tarty and trashy but also the elegant and unusual. Costumes such as the maids one or full lenth ball gowns.
After Zan Posted about Raspberry City, I had to go take a wander around also. Such a lovely place to mooch about in. Of course I spied a gacha machine within in seconds…couldnt resist taking a chance on the fiat inspired chair…its just SO cute ! Stuffed with lotsa great poses too and only 30L…the record stand is a free gift and at 3 prims, its got a place in my SL home for sure. The head lights up…and off…brilliant little piece to brighten up your den. Both items are at “La petite fleur” , the gacha machine is righttt behind the free gift…have fun !
Oh la la…CandyMetal are at The Acid Lily event…with some super steal deals! The new kit from CM is dazzzzzly and fun…two corsets , choice of this red polka dot one I’m wearing..or a lilac colour…coolio mesh denim shorts in light or slightly darker denim…plus some fabbo platform heels …everything fitted like a dream, I was wary of the corset but I shouldnt have feared, like a glove ! You wont believe the prices…the corset is just 59L and the shorts only 65L…oot oot!! Get on downnnn there and grab it all up…thanks Emychan ❤
I swear after all the posing and camera angling I had decided one more shot and then I would give in and make Faith take the photo. The problem is feet shots, I just can’t do them but I so desperately wanted to show off my new trainers and then Voila a good shot of the trainers and I’ve even managed to get the top in as well. Both items cost only 10Lds each and as it happens everything in the shop is only 10Lds but it’s the shoes which I am stocking up on. I have 2 pairs of trainers which cost me a heck of a lot more than 10Lds but that was in the days when cheap shoes made your feet look like clowns feet and that is not the case anymore esp these from Cay Crystal (AKA CC Designs). A massive selection of colours, patterns and the kicker is unisexed with an easy to use resizer AND comes with both Alphas for new and old viewers so non mesh but not lacking in quality for that. The top is a simple non mesh one in a light striped pattern and as said 10Lds and it’s an easy wear item. Quite a selection of clothes mesh and non mesh not maybe the latest of styles but even I picked out a few basics to keep for layering and then a SHED LOAD of these trainers.
Seem to spend most of my time rushing from one special offer to another but occasionally meandering really pays off. I popped to a lovely, new to me, shopping sim called Raspberry City. Nice open shops, simple and well laid out streets (massive amount of pose potential) a bar, cafe and this cute little waterside cafe for you to pose to your heart’s content. There is a new furniture shop there that looks very interesting so much so that I’ve joined it’s inworld group before the shop has even opened for business, so I’m hoping to bring you some fresh new decor items soon. Then I found La petite fleur. A small shop with some lovely simple to wear mesh clothes and this sweet little outfit of mesh wrap over skirt and jumper which is only 25Lds! Wear separately or together and she,YUKI (yukineko.jewell), has included all the Alphas you would need to wear it as seperates. It’s just plain lovely and so easy to wear. A choice of colours available as well all in suitable mute tones. She has priced her clothes to make them so affordable and yet not skimped on the quality.
And then I went looking at her main store and scored so many free shop quality gifts from them and you don’t even have to be in their group so I indulged myself. Not that a 100Lds for this is a big expense plus it comes with a colour changing hud which allows you to change the colour of the collar, top and bottom, but this is a complete dress and not 3 seperates. The combination is endless. All in light pastel shades
She also has some Gatchas out and they “gotcha” me because there is an interesting chair (great poses) which is half a car and some other items well worth the few Lindens they cost. FUN.
I’ve been taking a few hours out over the last few days…someone dear to me passed away and I felt fragile. So I spent some time in real life and here in Second Life, visiting some peaceful places. Never underestimate the power of Second Life to help you heal . I found this stunning field…and felt inspired…so slipped on my new Poison skinny mesh floral jeans. These come in three flowery flavours…I really liked this pale cream with tiny print. When I was at IZUMIYA the other day I couldn’t resist a few goes on the stole gacha…this creamy & yellow one teamed up nicely with my outfit..a veritable bargain at just 20L. My t-shirt is a new release from coldLogic, it’s called nelson, simple and stylish and available in ooodles of colours. Ohh must forget the free gift from IZUMIYA..upstairs are some gifts, I snaffled up the leather bracelets, which come in various tones in the box.
No they aren’t ! I found this store from Torley Linden’s Flickr stream…loved his photos of the place and tp’d over to take a gander. I hadn’t realised it was actually a store…its such a photogenic place , add into that a collection of truly inspired decor pieces…its a must see. The group is free to join and as a treat for being a member you can collect this set of 6 candle holders. The flame is beautiful and gentle…nothing brash or blingy about these darlings. They give off a glorious glow of candle light…just perfect. Ohh..btw, they are transferable..so if you’re feeling particularly generous and kind..share some with your friends ❤
