A Classy AF Sunday.(Free and not Free).

I always like to make it clear upfront that this first item is NOT the freebie and now let the rambling start….

SL is like RL, in that in RL I am a bargain hunter, the reduced food section in the supermarket, charity shops, Poundland and I eBay like a B*tch.  My scrimping knows no bounds and I’ve even been checking our Aliexpress for fun and cheap stuff…yes that is an actual web site.

But I save to spend and that applies to my SL life.  So when I saw there is a sale on at the Maison de Montgelas (MdM) shop I think, my cold cheap heart skipped a beat.

OK at just under 350Lds for this dress, not exactly cheap but when you see the fit, quality, design, texture and on and on it’s worth it.  I spent forever trying the demos on but in the end only bought this one as it looks like there is going to be not just a new shop but new stock and I can’t wait to see any new items.

This dress is actually one of the more understated dresses  You get two versions of it, this one where the jacket and overskirt at the back are a light green.  There is a lovely sash belt as well with a big bow. The second version has the jacket and overskirt all the same cream shade but the sash belt remains coloured.  You only get a Maitreya fits but as you can see I had no issues.  Again there are demos for you to try on and many other designs.

But even if you’re on a zero budget I will reblog this excellent free group gift for you in case you’ve not seen it before..

I’m just showing you the back as you can guess how good the front looks and this way you can see an example of the detailing.

The hats were another couple of things I treated myself to as they were just 120Lds.  Unlike the dresses, you don’t get demos for the hats but they are editable to a certain degree. I am lucky in that I have the perfect hat/hair which is designed just for this style. I will do a post about that next because although that is not a freebie I think some things are just worth paying for and if you want to swan around SL like a lady then you simply have to invest.

PS.  Forgot to mention that there is also a big selection of period costumes for men, they haven’t compromised on the cut, design, texturing etc for those either.

Find of the year!!!!! (Freebie).

I’m glad I SL when I’m on my own because I make such weird noises when I find amazing FREEBIES.  I squeak, squawk and yes even squeal and this dress made me SQUEAL like a little piggie.

Not the hat though, that’s a previous purchase but it’s amazing and you get it with the hair inc and full-colour packs so I will put the link to where you can purchase that at the end…as long as it’s still for sale.

If you love playing at dressing up then never ever become a blogger because you’re so focused on finding the next thing, and in my case the next freebie, so you find yourself TPing here there and everywhere usually just in the last thing you blogged, occasionally naked and often in a mismatched get-up or in demos looking like a complete noob but occasionally I go into my “fancy assed” folder and dust off one of my gowns and swan around like Lady Muck and this dress is going right into that “fancy assed folder” when I finally and sadly take it off for my next freebie.

BTW I think this dress like the rest is Maitreya fit only but as always one fit seems to fit all.

Here’s the spammy bit so feel free to ignore and scroll to the links.

Hold on to your knickers because I was just about to spend some Lindens and treat myself to a gown from a stall at an event but I decided to check out the MdM shop before I made up my mind as quality like theirs doesn’t come cheaply.   I don’t mind paying for quality the one thing I hate is buying something then finding something else I would have preferred. The shop is not a massive shop but packed with stunning gown after gown after gown and in the outlet section they’re so reasonably priced, I think it was about 225Lds, I was struggling badly to make my mind up and that’s when I spotted the FREE to join group and this gown is the GROUP GIFT!  BAMB mind made up.

Then the guilt crept in.

I initially found the MdM shop through the stall they have out at an event called “SOS Survivors of Suicide”.  On each stall, there is an item set out and the sale and a certain percentage of the sale price is donated to this cause.  I am truly grateful that although I have had enough RL sh*t thrown at me it has never reduced me to the level where suicide has even crossed my mind.  In fact, I am grateful for the sh*t I have had to face because it has made me truly appreciate the lessons it has taught me and made me much more appreciative of what I do have in life.  So this dress was free but the first thing I did when I logged back inworld was to return to this event and donate the cost of this dress.

PS. The hat/hair is from !g0 and it cost me 250Ld.  I can’t remember how many colour packs you get for the hair but I’m pretty sure there is a demo.  It will be easier for you to TP to the “Fantasy” department than walking to it.  There is a TP system, it’s piles of boxes, so just click “Fantasy” and then sit.  You will also see another stunning gown next to where this hat it…I own that one as well.
