Thats right I’m a PRINCESS and don’t you forget it! (Freebie).

Whenever I find an outfit like this it always makes me feel like Amy off The Big Bang when she puts on the tiara because secretly all women no matter how they dress have that “inner” Princess in them.  So to find a seriously OTT dress for free is an “I am a Princess” moment.

Sorry I wish the tiara, hair and make up were inc because they’re the icing on the cake for this look but they’re mine and it was nice to be able to use one of the Mina grey shades for the hair which is a colour I don’t get to use often.  This dress comes with a lot of “add ons” but you can also wear the skirt as a simple A line mesh skirt without all the mesh flounces and the ruffle shrug is also an add on you can “add off” and I’ve just had a thought the top is non mesh, it’s a system layer with some appliers I believe, and you could wear the skirt with another top ie a contrasting corset etc.  I do that quite often I take parts of clothes that I like and match them up with other items that I think suit them better.

OK nuff waffling this dress comes from The White Armory and I can tell you very little about it apart from I believe this is a place for a whole wardrobe of RP outfits for both men and women so basically you’re just going to have to go there and grab this beauty and have a look because I maybe wrong I maybe right but when a gift is as OTT is this I bet there is plenty of other surprises to be had. As I said in the title this is free and once you rezz just walk straight ahead and there it is easy to find.

Pile it on! (Freebie).

This is a quickie it’s also just a bit of a reminder to me that SLing can be a bit of fun.  I found this picture in my folder which I took a few days ago and I decided to pop in another quick post.

The dress is a Freebie from S.O.S and as you can see this is very much in the style that Marie Antoinette would wear which is a bit out of odds with the other clothes you find at S.O.S but perfect for some Christmassy fun and games.  A great outfit to take a Christmas picture in as well just pile on a big hair your blingiest jewels and pull a few poses.

PS Since I grabbed this freebie a couple of days ago I don’t remember much about the shop but I do remember that I should have grabbed the other Free to join Group Gifts because they looked like really good basics for your invent ie shorts and tops and I’ve just remembered as I’m typing this that I had spotted an American University Frat Boy style jacket I was going to try on.

Don’t Rush!

Actually DO RUSH! Right over to Apple May Designs because this stunning dress is only on special offer for the next 24 hours!

apple

Called Bella t’s only the Gold colour which is on offer and tbh I rushed over and grabbed it and didn’t check out what price it will be going back up to as I really wanted to get this posted, now that I’m LM grabbing it turns out that full priced is 275lds so at only 50Lds for this version it’s a smashing bargain.  You get not only all the standard sizing but a skirt that will fit if you’re wearing heels or not AND a fitted version which is the one I’m wearing.  On top of all of that although it’s only the gold on offer you still get a Hud which allows you 6 colour choices for not only the rose but the underskirt.  I changed mine to this lovely pastel blue.  A brilliant dress at any price but even nicer for such a token one.

Apple May Design is a bright new shop and layout so if the second LM doesn’t take you near to the dress you want to go through the main door with the pink car parked outside and you will find this dress and all the other colour options if you feel like splashing out in the New section.

Side tracked (freebie).

I was wandering around the HPMD sim trying to find some new greenery for my home when a note came through from Kaithleen about a new Group Gift and as soon as I saw it I TPed over snagged it and then TPed straight back to HPMD, threw on the clothes, threw on a pose and then with 1 click I was done LOL.

sidetracked

Cool minty green with lacy overtones and that gorgeous frill at the hem and bust line. This dress is called Baroque and with that exaggerated skirt it certainly has that feel to it.

Before I return to the HPMD sim I’ll show you another Freebie.

slip

These two pictures are like Night and Day.  This is a classic slip design with a lovely like silver texturing and of course it’s mesh.  Comes from a shop I recently blogged called “More Than Ever”and although this is a new shop it’s nice to see that Ever Wonder (great name) isn’t being stingy on the freebies and check out one of the walls as  because there are 2 hunts coming up that she’s going to be joining.

Red Hot! (Men and womens freebies). UPDATED!

Red hotHave to confess that time in SL was short but productive.  Baylen is wearing a complete and free outfit from Fashion Krush and sorry I haven’t had time to grab the womans free dress but I’m sure I will sometime this week.  You do have to join the group but that’s free and what you do get is not only the bright red jacket but a shirt layer that goes under it or you can wear the jacket on its own, the scarf, jeans and the boots and all the sizes so a complete look for zero Lindens.

OK Popped back to Fashion Krush and the womans Group gift is a red coat with dark fur collar and it a lovely match to the male GG.  There is also a Turkey on one of the boards which contains mesh leggings, again I’ve not had time to try them on but 2 clicks and they’re in my invent as I type.

StarBe a star in this 50Ld  gown from Rebel Hope Designs.   Although RDH is big in Mesh this is obviously non mesh because you just cannot, as yet, get that billowing gown look in mesh.  The colours are what you expect from RHD and are stunning the bodice has gem texturing on it that almost glitters.  You don’t even have to join the group to receive this simply look at the board placed outside of the shop and click the pressie and it’s yours.  Slightly kicking myself here because I used some old jewelry from my invent but if I had noticed that inside next to the desk is 2 gift bags which seem to have jewelry in them I would have worn them as well.  So make sure to pop in and grab the goodies.

BI*CH SLAPPIN  myself.  So sorry the Rebel Hope Design dress is set for 50LDs.  Although I’m pretty sure I didn’t pay for it I can’t disagree that there is certainly now a 50Lds price tag.  I try not to make mistakes but what the heck I am only human. BIG thanks to the person who pointed it out to me.  More than happy fess up and change the post.

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.

WOAH!

I’ve just received the list of the shops and designers who are participating in the Donna Flora fund raising  and the list is VAST!  I think it is probably the longest list of any event I have ever seen in all my years in SL. Kudos to those who must have spent an enormous time organizing all of this because the list alone had my head reeling let alone trying to organise it.  It’s a reflection of how much people hold Squinternet Larnia in their esteem that so many have been so generous in their offerings.

So basically, as far as I know because it hasn’t officially started, shops/designers have placed items out with a certain percentage going towards helping Squinternet Larnia and in some cases all the funds will be donated .  I will put the link to Squinternet’s story so you can see why so many people are feeling for her.

ColourtwoLooking for romance then try Romance Couture a shop packed with froth and froo froo.  Big ball gowns with flowing skirts.  Old fashioned glamour.  3 floors of dresses, shoes and jewels for you to recreate a glamorous look.  Mainly non mesh as you cannot get the liquid look with mesh yet but she does have a small selection of mesh clothes and even a rather good freebie which you can grab at the LM.  The event isn’t open officially till the 25th and so this is just a preview but as soon as it’s open I’ll pop on a reminder.

colourtwo twoBut of course you can go straight to Donna Flora and treat yourself just as I did.  Feminine hooped skirt with matching  “Marie Antoinette” styled hair and matching stockings/socks. Non Mesh sculpted hoop which is easy to edit down the tiny bit I needed to fit better.
