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.

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.

Sn@tch Gets Bigger

Blackfry

And of course by that I mean Lola Tangos.  As I’ve said these magnificent boobies are now attracting the eye of the BIG SHOPS and one of my all time faves is of course Sn@tch. Obviously at the moment a lot of clothes designed for the more enhanced look are downright rude but classy or at least normal is starting to creep in and I just love the counter balance that a lovely “normal” item of clothing adds to the enhanced boob look.  I also love the fact that  you get 8 colour choices and even though they come with Tango Appliers they are STILL Trans how good is that?  OH wait it gets better because for this week only The ski Bunny sweater is only 69Lds. Remember though that Sn@tch also has LBs and because so many people loiter at Sn@tch it doesn’t take long for your initial to pop up and it looks like NEW STUFF has been put in the boards and a large Christmas Tree and underneith that each day is a giftie just waiting to be grabbed.

Now lift your eyes from my boobs and check out my peepers. As someone who takes a lot of pictures in SL the one thing I do notice is the eyes.  Bog standard is just not nice so when the notice came through that Poetic Colours had put out a Crimbo Pressie for us I went and grabbed them and the Freebie pair on the back wall. Poetic colours make the most marvelous realistic, bright, medium or dark and you even get a choice of size. Lovely sparkling clean clear eyes,  Christmas Pearl and Oriental Pearl.  Get your peepers looking great.

I predict a Riot ( or Free Sn@tch)

Sn@tch is like Marks and Spencer meets Triple S a combination of great textures with a modern twist in the styling.  If you’ve never rioted before then it’s simply a case of the more people there the more the prices go down on the outfits shown on the riot boards.  Riot boards seem to have fallen out of favour simply for the fact that you can never get enough people to attend to push the price down but this is never the case with Sn@tch.  Once the call goes out in group for a Riot everyone piles in even if they want it or not.  What you can see in the photo is a riot in action (trust me it’s more exciting being there than seeing the picture) and if you look closely not only is the riot in full swing but the people are fishing and there is Lucky Boards and Gatcha for you to while away your time on as the prices drop.  Best of all they change the outfits on offer frequently so if it’s not to your taste come back and there will be new stuff out pretty soon.

You must squeeze Sn@tch into your Groups (resisting all the sn@tch jokes) because this is one of the best groups.  Not overly chatty but full of help for anyone. There is a vibrant swopping system going on for fished items of clothing and once someone calls out for a Riot eveyone comes running (remember you don’t have to buy it if you don’t want it).  I’ve “Rioted” twice this week already.

Over the past years I’ve managed to get some great shop quality outfits from the Lucky Boards but this by far is my Fav.  Very reminiscent of the style of clothes worn by Marie Antoinette but in a shortened modernised version.  The sculpted skirt is built outwards to extenuate a small waist.  Resisted the temptation to go shopping for a piled high white wig to complete this almost costumy(sic) look. 4 colours to chose from.  Now LBs and Riot Boards are non trans but all or most of Sn@tches other outfits  ARE Trans but Non Copy and since you get full packs of colours like me chances are you will end up either donating to friends and stray Noobs.  In fact I always say there’s nothing stopping 2 people getting together to buy an outift and then sharing the price and the outfit. And don’t forget the gift bags on the desk you will be sorry to miss them.
Sn@tch is a massive store and has a great selection of Mesh but it is mainly non mesh and non the worse for it. An easy to use TP board if your lazy and you can check out the massive Bargain Pit for a bargain.

Delicious Coco.

Thought it was time to go back to a great shop I know, Coco, and Woo Hoo lots of Group Freebies (group is even free to join) and some new ones to me.  However sorry this lovely oversized scrunchy  jumper with a ruffled undershirt is not one of them, someone has just walked past me wearing the red coloured one and now I wish I had bought that one! I usually don’t wear it with the mutton sleeve because that’s not my taste but it looks great with or without this prim.  A bargain 100Lds.  Non mesh and in fact lots of their clothes and shoes and absolutely gorgeous bags are non mesh so available to all.

This is FREE and MESH.  The same pose is deliberate because I realised something that’s rather nice about this lovely simple mesh linen style dress with a shirt collar and that’s when you sit down there isn’t a vast amount of invisibility up your skirt.  Just so simple, plain, sweet, wearable and free so it’s perfect.

Lovely ruffled shoes…FREE!

Rock chick look.  Semi free as well.  These jeans, Loose Style Denim, are so rude! and yet so fun to wear. It’s a shame you can’t get non mesh clothes in demo mode often because you will be able to see how well the prim opened zip and belt look.  Not free but at 100Lds for sheer cheekiness they’re cheap.   The jacket is the freeness and non mesh although you just wouldn’t think so.  I grabbed all the freebies and trust me there is some great quality items on offer ven though I have several outfits from this shop from drapey dresses to flowing linen shirts.  They have stylised but so wearable quality and affordable clothes. So check out the small discount section upstairs then join the Group grab the goodies and then still have Lindens left to do a bit of guilt free shopping.  OH and remember a small and fleding mesh selection but mainly non mesh so good for everyone.

OK popped back and STILL got temped by the most divine pair of strappy heels.  Time to TP out of here I think.
