Easy like a Sunday morning.

I don’t normally SL on a Sunday but since I’m up, washed, dressed and fed I decided to pop in and snap a few pictures for fun and maybe be able to get this new outfit from SF Designs blogged.

infaredJust having a play with my settings and Zan’s poses.  Although you can’t see it, went OTT with the lighting, I am reading a book by torch.BeigeAW She did it again, completely packed up her old house and all her garden stuff and rezzed a whole load of new stuff apart from the wind turbine in the background.  That has been a feature of her homes for many years now and at one stage she even had a whole field of them but it’s the clothes that I’m wearing that I’m blogging.  Comes from SF Designs and much to my surprise you get more than you bargain for.  The trousers are very “Dads pants” which are perfect for a nerdy, Hipster look.  What surprised me is that not only do you get the boots in the pack but again a colour changing hud for both items.  I’m starting to wonder if this is going to be a feature with a lot of swaffette Firefly’s designs as I have a couple of other items from her and they too come with colour changing huds which means your clothes are much more versatile.  A total of 8 in for the pants and boots so you can match them up or contrast them.

beige22The cardigan is a separate purchase but with not only the same earthy shades in the hud as the pant/boot combo but also a colour slider so you can customise the colour to the exact shade you want.  Goes without saying that demos are available at least for the pants/boots I couldn’t see it for the cardigan but since I’ve tried many of her demos on I knew that the fit and texturing would be excellent.

The undershirt is just one of mine as this doesn’t come in layer.  SF designs is breaking into the mesh market but her main stock on the ground floor is still mainly non mesh because there is still a market for it but if you either cam up or take the TP (on top of the NEW notice board) to the upper level you can see her mesh items.  Because of Limited budget I have left the denim shirt to another time but I love it’s fot and well worn texturing so you will see that at some stage soon.

Last thing, if like me you cannot be bothered to edit a hair to fit a hat then along with her Monthly Group Gifts upstairs in the hat/hair department is free hat hair in a whole range of colours.  Worth a visit just to grab that alone.

Early Bird.

Hat11Sadly it’s too early to use my Mistletoe but I finally found a beanie good enough to make me pull my finger out of my lazy ass and edit a hair to fit a beanie.

Hat222As you can see in this picture the fit is close to the head so you don’t get that “helmet” look.  You get a resizer version as well as the standard fit so you got a  big head NP you got pin head NP. Hat and snood are one purchase (150Lds for both) but each comes with its own 8 colour hud which means you can either make them match or have them 2 different colours.

SF Designs still caters mainly for the non mesh market but doesn’t lack in quality and styling for it and of course not everyone wants or can use Mesh, however swaffette Firefly is now creating her own mesh and this beanie and snood are prime examples of it and if you want to see more of her Mesh items then look higher on the walls.  This hat/snood set is in the main entrance but the other mesh items are higher on the walls with also hats and hair and other items.

There is what looks like a matching pair of gloves to go with the hat/snood but that’s a group gift. Not free to join (100Lds) but this is a group that doesn’t forget to put out monthly group gifts so you certainly get you’re moneys worth for it.

Tell no lie.

As I said as soon as I rezzed inworld right in the middle of FATEware and right in the middle of the sale I started to buy.

suitYou really need to try the demos to see what it is you get because some of the packs not only come with all the sizes as standard but so many layering options it’s really hard to describe (at 9.20AM and full of cold that is).

long coatThis long ..duster style coat is a prime example because you can wear it on it’s own or as in this case with the shirt and tie inc in the pack.

Gloves

OK I stuck to the more safer colours of greys and browns but there is a range of colours to chose from.  Sorry I would try to take a better photo of the gloves and would have loved to have taken one of the socks but RL time restraints means I haven’t had the time and the time on this sale is running out.  If you like the idea of SLinks hands but don’t like the expense or the skin matching then these gloves are perfect.  Again I picked a safe shade but there is not only a variety of shades but also some more “wintery knitted” style ones.  The icing on the cake is you get a whole load of hand poses from casual to holding and the price is slashed to 150Lds.  So good Zan is comming in to try out the demo and see if the XS size will look good on her.  It’s the same with the socks they come with feet shapes in them and of course plain for wearing with non SLink or any mesh shoe.  Winter, bedsocks also available.ShirtLast photo before I take myself back to bed (I haz a cold) but I wanted to show off the slim line look.  Obviously the bulked up shoulders and “manly” chest are big in SL but so is the more natural look which is one I prefer.

Sale is in full swing but the clock is ticking.

Breaking the rules.

Faith doesn’t have many rules but the one which I am breaking is blogging something that is a demo, but my excuse is I’m waiting for the FATEwear, FATEplay and Cold Logic 48 hour sale to start before I start to grab as many of the brilliant Damian Fate’s clothes that I can afford.

FateSo I’ve logged off standing in Fatewear because it is Monday and when I relog back in I should be right in the middle of the sale and I have my shopping list all prepaired.

As I’ve said this is just for 48 hours so don’t be late.

Goddess In Green

Star

Wow factor times 10.  I took a number of snaps to try to show you the fullness of the skirt but this one of me floating up through the blue tree is my favourite. As you will be able to see in the second photo the skirt is massive and it billows around you like a cloud.  The bodice, part of the skirt and shoulder decorations are made from leaves.  I loved walking along the rocky beach with it flowing behind me.  Quite an impact dress.

Vero

This wonderful, non mesh, dress comes from Vero Mondero and is a  special gift. It comes from a smaller satellite shop of theirs situated on a brand new, to me, shopping sim.  This sim is packed with top quality and well-known shops and designers and lucky for us if you join the Avenue Group you can get this show stopper and quite  a few other gifts that have been placed out.  I may blog some of them later but make sure when you have some spare time on your hand get over there and just have  a wander and treat yourself.

This smaller Vero Mondero shop seems to contain all Mesh clothes however the much bigger Vero Mondero main store is packed with goodies and mainly non mesh which can be a plus.   A great selection of mens clothes, swim wear, casual clothes and of course the full length ball gowns that seems to be their speciality.  It is nice to see that there is a lot for men to see as well and that dept isn’t just an after thought.

Special mention has to go to 2 departments that are somewhat related, the Wedding Department and the Maternity Department.  Beautifully crafted special dresses which just give the appearance of being “one of a kind” to pretty sweet or glamorous gowns that have been crafted to create the baby bump that some people love.

Not the cheapest of shops but a big smile came to my face when I saw what the group gift is, a very Voguish dress but that they also have a discounted section for men and women and there is a lovely selection of full length glam for all to indulge in.

Buy Buy Don’t Buy

Tiny

Buy this because it’s sweet, cheeky and just plain rude.  The top of course is what I’m talking about a mesh top with a crochet pattern that you can see right through but also with that off the shoulder strap means you can be cheeky and flash everyone or pop a t-shirt underneath for a casual look. 180Lds and you can check out the demo first.

Tiny11

Buy this because isn’t it obvious? Love that cheeky dropped strap look.  Again be a prude and pop on a T Shirt if you must but what the heck doesn’t it just look sweet. 150Lds and again comes with a demo.

Tiny 1

But don’t buy this because you can get it FREE as a Group Gift.  How lovely is this again, except no boob flashing.  A top quality layered look.  I almost bought this from the MP but I’m so relieved I decided to check out the shop first.  Always worth checking if a shop has a MP and an in world shop because sometimes promos, group gifts, dollarbies etc only appear in the one location.  So this is a definite KEEPER. Sadly not a vast collection of clothes and accessories but enough mesh, non mesh and accessories to temp most and heres hoping that they fill the walls with stuff as good as this.

Roses Are Red

roses

Sorry couldn’t help myself and wear my Lolas again, I am going to have to wean myself off them but until then I’ll wear them with pride. What you should be looking at is those amazing gloves and roses.  The gloves are mesh and although I’ve used a dramatic lightening effect they are that colour.  In fact there is a whole wall of deep rich colours or pretty pastel colours, so much so I was grateful that you could buy a fat pack so I chose the one that contained this colour Cherry Velvet and also Burgandy, Navy Cashmere, Tangerine and Black Suede all mesh and all lush and at 2oo  each the fat pack of 5 for 400Lds was a great investment.

A great investment because I then WON the random and first prize of  the “12 days of giving event” that  Boom, Piddle and Misteria  is running at this moment so not only do I get my piccie on the Christmas Tree but I get a 1000Lds worth of their goodies.  The only thing is one check of my invent and I think I already own most of their shop contents however and this is a big woo hoo Boom has a small and fledging selection of Lola Tango outfits and they’re going to be mine now.

This also gave me the good excuse to wear my Roses and that’s all they are.  Wearable roses however they have a little trick because if you or a loved one click on a rose they drop off until nothing is covering your blushes. A bargain price of 12Lds but please not once clicked thats them gone for good.   Gumi Flower shop is the shop and they have some lovely freebies and some beautiful flowers and cute critters.  Actually although the shop is a lovely open air area I’d reccoment a little bit of MP Surfing because it’s all there under one roof so to say and they just have some divine plants, pets and deccorations and all reasonably priced.

Some more piccies on my Flickr for you to see.
