Dream On!

I wishI’m English so I’m going to moan about the weather.  It’s the middle of Summer and I’m sat in my living room under a throw with the fire on.  The picture above is what I should be doing at this moment.  Until then I will have to settle for some SL fantasy fueled by an unexpected Sub gift and hair I forgot I had.

Snapshot_004In my need for a bit of sunshine I may have gone a bit heavy on the sun setting in this photo but what the heck.  The hair is from Mina and is called Silvia.  Can’t remember buying it but where ever it’s come from I adore the juicy colouring.  Each pack comes with a colour hud so this and all of her hairs come with a lovely selection in each pack.

Snapshot_010The outfit I am wearing I almost didn’t open because it’s another “Romper” outfit and I should imagine we all have plenty of them but because it came from LMD (Leri Miles Designs) and I know that shop contains such quality well textured outfits I thought I’d check it out.  Sweet, more like a retro bathing suit and if you look closely you can see the knitted pattern.  Just a handy little outfit that you can wear loitering on a beach and if you want to pop somewhere to check something out you wouldn’t have to change.   That’s the great thing about Sub or Group gifts as it acts as a reminder to pop in and see whats new and at the end of the month I’m popping back to grab a couple of new items she has as they’re so lovely. fresh and summery.  Until then if your strapped for cash then like me grab the Endless Summer giftie (the hint given is “Look for the bunny”) easy peasy and if you find it it’s a crisp green mesh summer dress.

Mina I decided to check out Minas main store to check it out and she has created a beautiful sim for people to enjoy.  Half beach and half fields, very pretty and very photogenic so I decided to take a snap of this hair, Veerlie, in my normal Nam skin and prim setting so you get to see one of the colours in more normal lighting.  This is on special offer at The Deck so it’s under a 100ld.  She’s stinted on the price but not the colour hud options.

My hat is by Eclectica, it’s a new release and I’ve been playing with it for a few days now. It comes in two versions, with hair or without, the hair is colour change too.

Leri Miles does Glam

Oh gawd..I’m so getting mesh fever lately…when I saw the preview of Leri Miles gift for the seasons palette hunt, I just HAD to go find it. (And you all know how bad Iam at hunts!) It’s wasnt sooo hard to find but it also ensured I got a good tour around the store, which is a greaaaaat thing cause Im sure like me, you usually miss whats around you when you’re hunting and you surely don’t want to miss the goodies on offer here !

The dress is mesh, so you will need a mesh enabled viewer to see it properly. In the box you have a choice of two sizes which is handy fitted my shape perfectly with no shape  modding required. The dress is just so glamorous…almost vintage in style..reminds me of those Hollywood starlets on the red carpet..slit to the  thigh along one side..the fabric is gorgeous..faded pinky burgundy tones…a halter top…adorbs. I love how it clung to my body and moved with me ~happy sigh~…go get lucky and hunt it down !

Christmas at Home

These last few days I’ve been a real homebody……shopping…the same in SL really…so when I received the latest release from Leri Miles Designs…and it was a little bit retro…I had to break out my vintage vacuum cleaner and bake ! The dress is called “Jade”… and has crisp sharp lines to it..a real body hugger, butter wouldn’t melt and classy. The little puff sleeves have resizers in them for the perfect fit, as does the belt, which is also colour change so you can really personalise your look. It has a Audrey Hepburn, breakfast at Tiffany’s feel about it, I adore !

I found some old sheer natural coloured stockings that I thought complimented the tone of these dresses…add in a pair of GOS pumps et voila! Deceptively simple and so well made…its a keeper for me. 250 single tones, fat pack for 1850L (thats a huge saving !) Thanks Leri xx

The vacuum cleaner is this months gift from FIN the 50’s store…it has sounds and is animated…love it ! (no group join fee yay) Have a look around , last visit I bought one of the washing machines…not expensive and sooo fab. If you’re into the 50’s or just love that era’s style…you’ll fall in love with Fin, clothing,decor all sorts to be found there !
