I spent so much time on our sim playing with the windlight trying to get one that has all of the Autumnal colours but doesn’t make your AV look horrible and although in the end I liked this sim setting I did have to pop on a stronger Facelight so I won’t be keeping it.
Anyhow, I decided that since there are sooooo many hunts starting in SL I too would start to hunt and this Pea Coat from Loordes is a brill start.
It’s the 2Ld “FY,IT”hunt item and it stands for something I totally agree with and thats “F**k yeah, it’s fall” except in the UK we don’t call the season “fall” we call it Autumn. What you’re looking for is a leaf and TBH no hint needed as this hunt prize with quite a few others are just right there in front of you in and around the Discount area in Loordes of London. The LM will take you right there.
Regular readers will know I’m a big Loordes of London fan as not just the amazing bargains you can get in the discount section, and there are NEW special offers, but the whole range of Loordes is so wearable. To me, it’s the Marks and Spencers of SL and that’s a really good thing.
PS This comes in all standard mesh fits and an Alpha.
It’s sad that there are so few quality freebies for men although now I hardly go looking for any so I might be wrong. I did use to use a male Alt just so we had the ability to show off any freebies for men, no that’s not the other bloggers listed ie PD (Faiths OH) or AustSteve Forster (now retired from SL) but in the end there was just so much good female stuff and SLing time is limited so I retired my male Alt.
But when I saw this in a notice I just had to grab and hoped I could just pop it on over my female form…nope you can’t.
This comes from a shop I don’t often visit in fact I think it’s probably been years since I was last over to AITUI and that’s probably because I do believe it was or is mainly tattoos and men’s clothes but again since it’s been years I could be wrong. Now that I’ve done my daily post when I am back inworld I will be having a look around the shop properly.
You get this 1 colour and I think it’s coffee and 3 I’m gonna assume, main MEN’s mesh bodies inc SLink. It’s just there inside of the door and the group is free to join.
So it’s nice to be able to find something that maybe any of our male (Moz) followers or if you have a significant other then you can send them or drag them to the shop.
PS I might just one day log in with my Alt and see if I can dust him off but the poor soul will be so outdated I will probably just give him an SL burial.
I’m just killing time before a new Gacha event opens which should be sometime today so yesterday I had popped over to Dench Design to grab the gift Faith blogged about (and yes Ramona it is free for all and not just group members and you will find it just outside the entrance to the main shop). Turns out it’s as cute as Faith described. Also while I was at Dench Designs I splashed out on a lot of greenery for our sim so while I’m waiting for a gacha event to open I will be sprinkling more magic over our sim.
OK this is an odd Freebie but it’s come from a shop I’ve not visited for ages called ::K:: but as soon as the shout out for this freebie was sent out I TPed over. It’s an over the shoulder jacket. OK Since I’m someone who doesn’t bother to wear jewelry, bags, knickers etc in SL I’m not really going to wear this draped jacket but people DO like to completely accessories themselves and it is nice to come across something as new and different as this.
You do have to join the group but it’s free and in the pack you get his and her options plus 2 shades and one is obviously the pink I’m wearing but the other shade is I believe gray.
Mutters “I hate Windows 10 and the damned blue screen of death!” anyhow time and cursing at my computer seemed to have done the trick and I’m back. PS You can tell I’m no teccie!
Keeping this a really short post as my OH is now off for Christmas and I want to get this done before he gets up and starts hinting for me to join him for a jog. You see those dots? they’re not glitches they’re actually the snow on our sim. I’m actually stood inside my caravan with the side dropped down so I’m sorta inside/outside.
Now the snow is looking more natural but you should see it inworld it’s so amazing.
Anyhow a lovely simple floral, velvety winter coat from The Vintage Touch. Comes with the black tights/leggings in a tat and Omega layer and all the mesh sizes for the coat.
PS Costs a linden to join the group but I can’t remember now if that’s sent back to you, tbh when it cost a single Linden to join a group it usually is returned to you but it’s really just a token amount esp for such a lovely item PAY IT!
I told you I’d not use that backdrop again lol but as it happens when I had popped over to Junbug to see if it still had its FLF offer out, it does but I wasn’t tempted this time, I couldn’t but help admire the sim setting so once I’d grabbed this 30Ld Saturday offer I decided to just use the shop as a backdrop.
Because of the sim setting I had to use a body light and then I edited the piccie BUT this is well worth 30Lds and more. It is slightly let down by that raw edge look to the hem but the texturing and quality of the exaggerated collar and sleeves are pure Junbug and for the asking price a great way for people on a budget to get their AV paws on a piece of Junbug.
PS because of the balloon bottom knickers must be worn at all time lol but of course this coat over socks, leggings, even a pencil skirt will look even better.
I wonder if Primark is just a UK shop or if it’s a universally well-known one? If you’ve never shopped at a RL Primark what it is is a shop that sells bargain priced clothes and accessories sometimes they can have some really great styled clothes and sometimes they’re DUDS but I don’t know of anyone who hasn’t at least stocked up on socks, undies and in my case most recently wooly gloves. So this Dollarbie coat from Vitrimi may not be TK Maxx quality and more Primark but it will make a great basic.
TBH once I’d put on a pair of thigh length socks and boots it started to look even better and as I was rummaging in my invent for a scarf to cover up a very basic collar I suddenly realised that this coat is perfect for wearing with hair down. This is one of my Mina mid length hairs and as you can see no collar poking out and I think it ended up looking great.
You will have to log into the SL Marketplace for this but I think most people are happy to use the MP now. Hmmm now that I’m looking at all the Dollarbies from Vitrimi I have a sneaky suspicion that I might just have shown you this coat before and if so that was probably last Winter so sorry if it is a repeat BUT then again this coat pack, you get 3 colours in the pack burgundy, light brown, black, is going to be a good addition and check out the other Dollarbies while you’re at it because I know for sure I’ve shown you the Skater Skirt set as it’s turned into such a handy basic to wear.
It’s all go today, work and play means my SL time is seriously limited but I’d picked this little beauty up yesterday and although in my haste this morning I managed to delete all my pictures I managed to recover one of them and my sanity.
I can do Granny Squares which is one of my saddest and yet proudest achievements but would I ever make a RL coat out of them, Hell No but then again check this out!
You actually get more than just this long crocheted coat in the same pack because you also get the jeans and as soon as I spotted the SLink Flat Sandals amongst the other Group Gifts at Gaall’s I snagged them. Sorry no close up of them but they’re excellent.
If you have some Lindens to spare the Mina hair I’m wearing is perfect for this look. I don’t wear this hair much as it’s just so hippy and not me but when you have the WHOLE look it rocks!
OK folks I have to rush, RL is calling my name. Have fun and remember it’s FLF and although I don’t know whats on offer I’ve got some Lindens to spare and I’m looking forward to checking that out as soon as I can get back inworld.
