Ignore me.

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.

Chores.

polaroidWhen I next bump into Faith I’m going to offer her this ironing board as she still has that boathouse rental she’s just blogged and this recycled ironing board from Follow Us is perfect for a beach or shabby chic home.  If you look closely you can see that this would be a perfect example of recycling, if I was a DIYer this is the sort of thing I would make and use.  Comes all linked with the basket, iron, ironing board and the fabric and nooo poses.  However I’ve seen one of the newest Follow Us releases and it’s a posed, posher ironing/laundry set so as soon as I get my greasy mitts on that one I’ll be showing that off.  Till them this excellently priced 10Lds one will be perfect for any home but especially beach, shabby chic and rustic homes.

DOH almost forgot to mention that this months newest group gift is out and of course I forgot to grab it.  The Group now isn’t free to join but at 40Lds it’s a token amount and there is a whole wall of all the old shop quality GGs waiting to be grabbed.

I seemed to have missed so many of the weekly special offer from AMD (Apple May Designs) but not this week.  ….puts something out for the pricely sum of 25Lds and this week it’s this simple and lacy mesh top. As always I went for the neutral colour but others available, I didn’t stay long enough to check them because it’s been such a busy week and I’m so behind in posting the goodies.

Special mention to the hair and a reminder to go grab this brilliant skin.  The hair is a Mina Nakamura hair called Nanda and as you can se it has a lovely big lose plait down one side if a single plait isn’t to your taste then next to Nanda is Mandy which is what looks like to me the same version but with 2 plaits.  Both prices most reasonably at 250Lds and of course with that you get a choice of colour shaeds in a Hud.   I love how the landing spot is set away from the shop, just walk through the lovely tree lined avenue and maybe even if you’re not after hair you might want to LM this place for a lovely hangout/meeting area as Mina has spend so much time landscaping her sim for us to enjoy.

Mentioning this skin again because not only do I love it but Faith has also fallen in love with it.  PumeC is where it comes from and it’s called Vlada.  She has beautiful dark smudged eyes but with the addition of make up layers you can change the look completely.  Not only is this a free skin but also comes not only with ALL Appliers but also the most useful Hud with all the appliers loaded into it.  This isn’t the only Free skin from PumeC so get yourself over there and grab it before it goes.

Tell no lie.

shoenic

When I got the notice through that Shoenique has a seriously discounted room set up I was sooo excited I TPed my semi naked AV over there, too lazy to dress properly, and grabbed a pair.

OK won’t tell you a lie I did have difficulty skin matching these to my AV but I did actually get them pretty near but just not close enough for me to take a close up of the shoe and also, honestly I’m not trying to talk you out of buying these, there isn’t a resizer options so there was a bit of an ankle gap for me. However these aren’t insurmountable issues because the Hud which maybe limited options does offer you the option to input your RBG skin number if you know it and of course you can either wear some sort of ankle chair or resize your AVs ankles to cover the size difference.

So why bother? because all of their shoes are of offer for only 10Lds and not everyone in SL is Linden rich.  There is actually quite a selection of shoes to chose from and also some clothes.  Sadly no demos which is why I thought I’d described them with all their flaws and positives.

PS the blood drips are my addition there is always something so off putting showing shoes with cut off ankles.

Ballroom or Bordello?

Spent a little time looking through my notices and came across one for the Genre event which is new to me.  The premiss is ” Genre is a new monthly event that focuses on celebrating the different cultures within SL” and even better nothing is priced over 100Lds.

urb100glassThis is The Annex’s offering of a completely sumptuous mesh dress with a very Victorian/steam punk inspired look.  Red Damask is the name with rich draped blood red Damask over a satin black underskirt. The low-cut top allows a lot of cleavage and the straps on the arm flex really well.  The main body of the skirt is non rigged  which means it doesn’t flow as much as a unrigged mesh and in fact I saw the demo of this on someone else and my first thought was it’s a sculpted skirt but it’s not, that still didn’t put me off trying the demo for myself and especially since it’s on special off of only 100Lds I was so pleased with it happily snapped it up but definitely try the demo first.   It’s so regal and, going to say it again, sumptuous.  Almost forgot to say gloves and veiled hat are also included.

The hair is another offer from Curio Obscura at Genre .and it’s from one of my fav quirky shops in SL.  I chose the “Victorina Ladylike” style but the is another equally as stylised hair option.  A very stylish thick look, piled high with thick ringlets.  Certainly a unique look.

GlassThen I turned off the light and walked “through the looking glass” and WOAH…..

urb100You enter a wonderland.  A large ballroom stuffed with all the weird and wonderful things we love about Alice in Wonderland.   I’ve already missed last Saturdays  ball but there is another one this Saturday so I have made a note of the time and I’m hoping to get there myself.  This is a massive build over many sims (yes I’ve forgotten how many).  I frequent it and never get bored because behind every door is  a stunning room or display.  The heart of all the sims is The Red Rose Theatre  a palace that would equal Versailles in opulence.  Open to all, you don’t have to be dressed up to the nines but this is a place to put on your full length gowns or best suit and tie and just go OTT.  Even if you’re not into dressing up you’re still more than welcome.  This isn’t a “naughty” place and you won’t find certain pose balls but what you will find it many areas to just sit and relax from the formal to the casual, pools and stables and plenty of gardens to wander.

A nice touch is that most of the furnishings are for sale but instead of having to TP to the shop you can just click and buy the item as it’s placed out in the palace AND WOW I’ve just seen in their blog that they now have whole suites for rent as soon as I rezz inworld I’m off for a mooch around for myself.

Pumpkin Patch.

pumpI was searching around for a place to take photos of a  new cheap outfit when I stumbled on The Royal Crown Pumpkin Patch and it was so lovely I threw away the piece of clothing I was going to write about and threw on one of my fav !gO outfits (a lovely baggy mesh pair of dungarees).  A small island in the middle of the sim with a couple of shops, Petitie Bowtique, with some seriously cute items in especially for children but also some home decor items. The whole sim is themed around Autumn with oodles of lovely top class sitting areas, tents, food stands, ponds etc from some of the best shops in SL so if you want to hang out with friends or a loved one or even just sit alone and enjoy the place then come here.

shoesNow check out these gorgeous sneakers/trainers and so so pretty.  Not only do they come with a size rezzzer but a price tag of only 10Lds!! WOAH  I picked them up from the Marketplace and only bought the one pair because although the picture looked good I didn’t think they would actually be as good as they looked but they are excellent.  Mesh and a variety of colours so I’m going back and buying them all.  There are also some lovely Dollarbie tops which I would have worn (no they weren’t the cheap tat either LOL) but they’re mesh and drapey so didn’t fit under my dungarees.
