Beautifully Flawed (Discount&Dollarbies).

Because I take pictures so much I sometimes spot flaws that others wouldn’t and when I was taking these pictures I realised that my brilliant finds of the day have flaws.  So I binned the item with the worst flaw (uck) but I can’t bin this dress because it’s just too sweet.

The flaw is that the base prim, sculpt, mesh square (I’m not very techie here) that the outfit is built around is visible.  Normally this cube is buried inside of your AV somewhere but in this case you can still see a tiny cube on the palm of your right hand.  Not the first time this has happened but unlike the other times this items isn’t Mod so I wasn’t able to edit it.

Honestly this is such a lovely well textured dress I don’t care about that little flaw.  I took these pictures not only in my Nams setting but I also changed my dome cover to a realistic sky so basically this is as good as it gets in an SL setting.  Icing on the cake is that you have 3 dresses in this pack each with the blue skirt but with different coloured tops, pink and black.  If you don’t like the blue skirt options then check out Rakar’s Marketplace shop because she has other colour variations and each pack cost ONLY 1Ld!  Actually I’ve just bought the pink pack and I will let you know if that to also has this little flaw.

One of my fav events has now started and yet again Mina Nakamra has a discounted hair out for us.

minaagain

This hair is called Linda and as standard you get a colour pack of your choosing but in this hair you get something new 3 boobs sizes.  You get the standard 00 (small boobs) 01 (big boobs) and a new size of 02 (gazungas).  I’m wearing the 00 size in this picture because I keep my AV boobies on a more natural sizing but I did throw on my Lolas and the mid size fits a treat which means those of you who love your “gazungas” will want to rush over and grab this hair. I have to mention that those exagerated curls emm curl around your nips.  Can’t be more subtle than that, a nice sexy little touch.

The reason I love the My Attic event is simply because there is usually a good mix of hair, shoes, decor and poses here and all priced under 100lds which means “Linda” is only 95Lds and for that you get a colour pack and not just the 1 shade.

Flawed3This weeks offering from Mute is these SLink Flatties.  As always each colour is priced at only 10Lds.  Lots of lovely base colours such as red, blue but at 10Lds each I decided to go crazy and steer away from my norma “safe” colour.  There is 2 10Ld offers this week but I’ve just done something very similar to the dress so I don’t want to do another so quickly.  A free to join group and I would suggest you do because Jay Shadows (jaysee netizen) releases these 10Lds items pretty frequently and as soon as I get the notice I’m off like a shot although you don’t need to panic as she keeps all the offers out so you can grab them at your leisure.

UPDATE.  Turns out that the pink dresses from Rakar also have the same flaw and the SLink flatties are also wearable with Belleze feet.

First tea light of the year(Freeness).

Sadly last night I had to cave in and put the central heating on but the one good thing about saying goodbye to the Summer is HELLOOOO AUTUMN.  I love Autumn to me it means tea lights, oversize jumpers, hot chocolate, no more leg shaving, my fav walking shoes, the smell of wet soil and then we have the colours which I adore, brown, reds and oranges, all the colours of Autumn.

Orange

Managed to grab some great freebies I’m just so happy with them and I also decided to use the PumeC sim as a delightful background.  The dress is the freebie and it comes from S@bbia.  I’ve not taken a full body shot but it ends just above the knee.  The slashed open sleeves and those lovely bows make this dress so much better than so many other freebies but then again this is a dress which is available to buy in Jury Gothy’s shop and if you’re not keen on the free gift colour then you can buy the same design but in a different colour for just a 100Lds.  The cheap price doesn’t mean cheap quality.  You do have to join the group to get this free shade but that’s FREE.

I had a little bit of time to wander around Jury Gothly’s shop and Autumn is now creeping into SL because there is definitely a leaning towards clothes for a cooler season, jumpers and coats, skirts and cardies.I spotted some lovely flatties.  If you’re still not into mesh then downstairs is a whole department of discounted non mesh clothing in very similar styles and texturing but just non mesh and if you check out the wall near the entrance you will see even more Group Gifts but these are for non mesh as well.

Also a couple of Lucky Boards and Gachas for fun and I’m stood at the desk waiting for my initial to pop up.  Behind me on the shelves are some items of decor very bargain priced but I noticed as I walked thought the shop that a few of the items used for decor here are actually for sale so check out the 1 prim table and chair for only a Ld each.

Shoe

Then I went to Hollywool because I got a sniff of more freebies and in this case SHOOOEESSS and not only 1 pair but a total of 4.  There are only 3 Group Gift boards up but one of them contains the same shoe but in 2 different colours and these are the shoes I’m going to show you because simply I love them.

Shoe2

So these 2 shoes are in the same pack and they both need SLink mid feet and another of the GG shoes also needs the SLink Med foot however there is  also a non mesh pair of shoes.  Even as a SLink addict I still have some non SLink shoes from here and I’ve found that using the hud I’ve been able to make a really good skin match so good I’ve actually kept them. Sadly my time was limited so I ran through the shop checking out what was there and from my last visit, which was a while ago, she’s not got  a whole range of clothes and even some skins to her shop so hopefully next time I can have a wander around and check out the stock better.

House

Decided to pop back to the PumeC sim as it also has gone into early Autumn mode and I thought it would make such a lovely background for my new stuff.  This is one of the few little homes dotted about that you can enter and lounge around.  Little homes dotted around, decks and sitting areas.  Such a lovely sim for all.

Island

I took all of the pictures just using the sims windlight setting so what you see is what you get and check out how delish my skin is!  That of course is my PumeC skin with just some orange make up on I still can’t get over that you can get such great skins from PumeC for as little as free to a 100Lds and then most of the rest seem to be around the 500Lds mark.  So a beautiful sim and equally as beautiful skins (and a small shape shop).

PS and of course I’m wearing my PumeC skin with some make up on and how great is this amazing 100Lds skin?

Blew It!

My budget that is.  However my excuse is I found some really great stuff at even better prices.

Perga 1

This is what happens when you “pop” into Collabor88 you find something so good you have to buy it. A cross over copper coloured  metallic mesh dress.  The dark black outline, buttons and crisp collar look so good.  I chose this colour but they have some more dramatic colour choices  The boots are a must because this finish off this look to perfection and they too come if matching colours to the dresses.  They are a separate buy but at 88Lds for each item that still works out at a more than reasonable price for a great look. Better hurry though because once removed they will go back to full price.

Perga11The strange thing is I had just been to Rei2 Aya shop, R2 Fashion, and seen this outfit just before I TPed to Collabor88.  So fate decided I had to buy it.  Cheeky cheeky and more cheek. A strapless dress but that short skirt with the exaggerated flare means you can show your undies off or if you really cheeky dare to bare all.

Perga111Only 4 colour choices with this dress so again I stuck with the beige. Wearing the boots as well and again they go a long way to finishing off this outfit.  This dress isn’t in the Collabor88 sale it’s in their main shop but 149Lds is a decent price.

This shop is about 70% shoes, 20% clothes, 10% skins and a 100% excellence.  Loving the shoes as well and I’ve grabbed a number of demos to try on at my leisure and another cheeky skirt demo with the same flare as this dress.  Her clothes and shoes have that touch of something extra that make them stand out from crown (which you certainly will do if you don’t wear your undies!).

R2

Collabor88

Now walk outside of R2 and into the Love Soul shop which is packed with so many good things.  Nails, shoes, hair, accessories all with a touch of uniqueness.  You don’t find this stuff in every other shop.  I spent all my money here on hair.

Hair

Sadly for 170Ld you only get 1 shade and I want them ALL! You can buy a fatpack but thats a 1000Lds which may work out at a bargain price but I’m going to have to settle for this (just for the moment).

Hair 2Cute and short, a bit like my AV.

Perga 3

and finally this hair and then I had to leave because I just wanted all of the hairs on offer. Got to mention the shop owners name because she deserves it, 流依 Bluestarrui Villota.

Kicking myself because the one thing I do have plenty of from this shop is nails.  A great selection of colours and sizes so go on check out the claws. The check out the rest of the shops at this shopping centre.  Well laid out with good prices, good designs, good Gatchas and a few LBs.  So if your not shopping for anything in particular you will have a lovely time here.

PS as it happens I too popped to the Ribbon shop at this shopping centre and won almost the same top as Faith has just blogged but I got the “melty heart” one and it’s so cute.
