Old Friends.(Freebies).

Azul is the sort of shop you feel you need to get dressed up to just go shopping in it as it’s such a bright and grand looking shop.  It’s also pretty big so it’s handy that there is a TP Hud at the LM which will, once you give it permission, TP you to all the different areas such as formal, casual, Group Gifts and this “Garden” area which is where I took my pictures and as you can see calling it a garden is a bit off as there is nothing but gorgeous watery sim with this little pavilion and another even smaller feature.

There is a whole wall of the free to join group gifts, when I go back I’m going to check out what the paid for group gives you, and this dress is brand new.

For the Azul free group, you get this red/orange version and for the SLink and frees group it is the blue colour the third colour is for the VIP group.  Yes, there is a lot of “flexi” in this dress and in fact in all of the old Group gifts flexi still plays a bit part of the designs.

Of course, you can just not wear the flexi if you don’t want to but some styles really do carry it off well, for example, this next one.

This is one of the really old GG’s and I bet Faith will remember it but honestly, it still holds up so well.  When this dress first came out everyone ran to grab it, it’s almost an SL classic.  The “Flexi” bit swirls smoothly around you and if you’re an SL dancer check this one out.

I am deffo keeping this big flexi skirt and popping it into my folder with my Ballet clothes.

I should have used a different pose for this dress as I’m covering up too much of the top.  This is a classic SL and RL style and it’s why Flexi still has a place in SL as this dress is very reminiscent of Elisabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn, stylish, classic. PS If you do get this dress the belt on the skirt has a script in it so just click on it and you can make it smaller.

There is so much more than what I’m showing you, some newer GG’s, as well as the older ones and I bet like me you cannot help but grab so many of them and I had a really lovely time this morning trying them on with and with out the flexi and I may have ended up binning all but the skirt from this last one but there is a black one which

PS Go get those Legendaire Free shoes I mentioned in my last post as I feel guilty I didn’t do a close up of them and I wore them with these outfits and they go so well so if you haven’t popped in then emm pop in.

Still working! (Freebies).

Got a shout out for Freeness at Azul and FREENESS which is always gets my attention….as well as grilled cheese sammies, cupcakes and purring pussycats.

It’s been such a long time since I’d been to the Azul shop so to me its layout, design etc is all new but the freebies are a mix of new mesh and old prims but Dayum it still works so well.

Ignore the hat/hair as that’s from a shop long gone but this outfit called for some OTT on top lol.  Am I the only one who as soon as I put on a prim skirt does a twirl just to see it move?

XXXCrossred

Because I also had the black version of this hat/hair I decided to pop on another one of the Freebies from Azul.

OK going, to be honest and I rezzed n grabbed n ran and didn’t really spend much time in the shop itself but I will be going back not just because I think there are more Free to join GG’s, OK I lie it’s because there are more Freebies and I’m so greedy but when I am there I will also be having a good look around because you never know even a cheap B like me could be tempted.

UPDATE because I was worried the link wouldn’t work so I logged into SL and the link does take you right to the GG’s and I should say ALL of the GG’s as you will see that there is quite a few of them in various designs.  So as always if these two don’t grab you check out the rest plus I also noticed that AZUL has a special GG set out for just us SL free’s and offer group members which is the same top dress but in a green shade which is much more my colour.  I also noticed in a separate are that there are GG’s but for VIP members, I don’t know how much the VIP Group is to join and I didn’t check out what was on offer but if the Free GG’s are this good I can only imagine how good the paid for group ones are but you could of course just wander around and treat yourself to a gown or two from the main shop.

Mondays Kiss (freebies).

I’m kissing (keep it simple stupid) it this morning because I got so distracted with the remodelling of my new house I ran out of time.  Sometimes when I have a new home I simply delete the old one leaving all the internal decor items where they are and then spend my time picking through them to see what I’m going to keep and what I’m deleting and so as I was doing this I just took a moment to pop a couple of items on and snapped a few shots off.

OK confession time, I’ve either forgotten to pick up the NEW Asteria gift or I accidentally deleted it as I tried on quite a few of the Group Gifts set out for us and so what I am showing you I have shown you before BUT in my defence I’ve not shown you these textures.

XXXUrbD

A simple strapless romper, the belt is a perfect fit and you get a choice of sizes and since it comes as a separate it’s very handy for going with not just this outfit but also jeans, shorts, skirts etc although the romper itself is familiar this lovely leafy flowery texturing isn’t.  There is a choice of colours as well for you to choose from.

XXXUrbD2

I have shown you this dress and I know I have because even though that post was actually now quite a long time ago I still have this dress in my invent but in the mossy green shade and this time I wanted to show you a different colour.  There is a whole selection of shades on offer and there is no reason why you can’t snag the whole lot of them.  A simple well-fitting, well textured and so easy to wear dress.

As I’ve said I ran out of time other wise I would have gone back to regrab the new GG, free to join of course.  You will find all the GG’s not in the shop but outside right next to where you rezz.  Just in case you’re not a Mesh Head then there are clothes for you as well in fact a good mix of mesh and non mesh so everyone can find something.

Lazy Mare!

Sale

OK going to confess that because over the years I have had so much from Apple May designs I’m not sure I will buy anything in this sale but that doesn’t mean you should miss out on a brill sale.

To make way for new stock, which I will be looking forward to very much, they’re having a blow out so they have slashed the price for a lot of items to just 25Lds.  Although I haven’t been inside yet, RL is a bit rushed, I’ve done a quick cam around and there is everything from skirts, tops and temptingly to me shoes and boots included in the sale.  I know that Apple May designs are well into mesh however they also have a healthy amount of non mesh for those who can’t or don’t wear mesh.   I’m also going to assume the shoe/boots are also non SLink which again isn’t a bad thing the shoes I’m wearing in this shot aren’t SLink so even hardened mesh heads will find something to wear here and again at 25Lds a super bargain.

Sorry boys the sale doesn’t extend into your dept, when you land turn around and your dept is that way.  Shame as I know that Baylen isn’t constantly glued into his FATEwear but he also wears Deadwool and he picked up a whole lot of clothes from Apple May so still worth a check out for the quality we know they are.

PS as far as I could see with my camming the skins, shapes etc aren’t in the sale but if you’ve ever wondered where to get a “Baby Bump” this is the place.  This is the pregnancy bump that I see in many appliers but apart from that I can’t tell you much about it but again worth trying the demo if you want to.

Inspired (freebie and cheapie).

sim1I have been such a lazy mare in SL and just wandered all around my new Sim find.  I’ve taken so many pictures I’m not sure what to do with them so indulge me as I post more piccies.

ApplesHowever I do have a good excuse as since our sim is Winter white and I’m starting to yearn for a bit of colour in my life (RL and SL) I knew that this sim would be a perfect place to take a couple (or more) snaps of my new freebies and a brilliant hunt find.  The mesh top and skirt are freebies from J.Allen Store (it’s in the window with a couple of other freebies) and you get a choice of 3 colours for the top but I loved the juicy orange.

sim2Again the Lennon Sim is an amazingly beautiful laid out and planned rental sim but since the owners have been so kind as to leave it as an open sim even for us casual visitors there are some really beautiful places to hang out in and just enjoy the view.  As always I can only say please resist entering people’s homes, unless of course you get so awed you want to rent a home here yourself.

FlowersMust confess I thought I was buying a cute flying pig which in a way I was but it turns out the pig contained this delightful,delicate and pretty hair flowers. Turns out the pig is from an old hunt called When pigs fly hunt which is well over now but obviously Norena Soir has been so kind she’s left it out for us.  Since it’s an old hunt I don’t think I’m breaking any rules when I tell you it’s attached to the special offer boards.  As it happens I was so pleased with this I paid the 75Lds and joined her group and then grabbed the freebies which I haven’t had time to check out yet but the ornate mask and bunch of flowers on their own look as though they’re worth the joining free alone.

Last piccie of Lennon but I took so many it was hard to choose which I liked most.

Blondie(Advent Calendar)

Snapshot_015

OMG how much does this blonde hair make me look like Faith! Thought I would wear it for a change but this post isn’t about the hair (just an old one from a shop now gone) but the lovely Advent Callenar gift from Leri Miles Design.  Not free but top quality and cheap price.  Mesh, of course, and sleeveless.  Little capped sleeves and a stylised collar and of course that wintery pattern.  Simple and yet lovely.

Advent2Another Leri Miles item from her calender.  I also picked up a sweet scarf for only 1Ld but since it wouldn’t fit either top I’ve omitted it from the pictures but it is lovely and will be worn with other outfits.  This is a  lovely knitted cardie/coat with a hoodie down the back.

Nothing is free on this Advent Calendar but that’s because this is all Leri Miles Quality, the same items which can be bought in her shop she is almost giving it away for a token price.  A few items are a single linden but the top is only 25Lds and the cardie 40Lds.  What I really appreciate is that she has a whole mix of outfits from simple scarf to a ball gown, from a cuddly cardie to a flowery blouse.

Ah Bliss.

I’ve been waiting for this sale for ages.  I love hats RL, SL any life and especially when they’re on special offer.  Bliss Couture has been up and running now for an impressive 5 years and as a Thank You last week they started an upto 60%  discount sale on their clothes.  they have everything from bridal gowns to cocktail dresses which also  seem to be all non mesh.  It’s what I call High Fashion which means big skirts lots of froth and real statement clothes.  I’ve not got any of her outfits but from the pictures they look so dramatic and beautifully texture, very romantic and womanly.  What I was waiting for was the hat and hair sale.

BlissBudget busting at 99Lds each and I know from my pre sale visits that they are vastly reduced.  Each hat comes with a variety of colours which sadly only come in the fat packs. It was hard to chose which colours as they’re all so pretty.

Bliss1From big and frothy to close caps of dense flowers.  Because you cannot get demos you will just have to take my word they’re just gorgeous, or simply buy  one hat and try it on and once  you’re convinced of the quality you can shop with confidence.

Bliss 2In case your wondering that is an Etchaflesh cleavage busting corset.  Not sure why hats and corsets go together so well but they do.

Bliss 3 All photos were taken with the Nams Prim and Skin setting (touche eclait for SL) and no photo shopping of any sort because I want to show off the beauty of them.

Bliss threeA nice and appreciated touch is putting your hat on doesn’t mean you lose your hair which I find a minor annoyance.

Bliss 4Last photo I promise but honestly I still have about 5 more which I love and adore but haven’t shown you and I’ve not even started on the hair.  The hair is very much like the clothes, big and bold.  I treated myself to one shaped into a teddy bear face …honestly it’s CUTE.

The LM should take you to the large hair and hat department but you will also find downstairs a small selection of seasonal hats and I just had to have the one with all the cute stuffed bunnies.
