I had to quickly log out of SL so I left my AV stood in a shop called Chain and when I logged back in I quickly joined the group for only 30Lds and snagged the 2 group gifts.
This dress looks like a 10 out of 10, Hell I look like a 10 out of 10 LOL.
This is a really super clinging dress with a colour option of 5 great colours, BUT because I either missed it in my haste to buy it I missed the fact it’s a Maitreya fit. Ho Hum, having said that even though there is “breakthrough” I could actually live with it. There is a bit on the back hem, the top part of the back and there is a little bit of alpha showing at the cleavage which does sound a lot but in fact I don’t think it’s that bad and if it wasn’t for the fact I have a lot already of this figure-hugging dresses I would be keeping it. Obviously, you may have a Maitreya mesh body or a system body but know you have an Alpha which would work with this design I deffo say go for it.
This other Group Gift is a bandeau top with a choker part to it and oddly enough this one comes in 4 mesh fits so my SLink is catered for as well as HG Slink, Maitreya and 2 other fits which I obviously can’t remember because I can’t name em LOL. Anyhow check it out for yourself because it too has a really nice 6 colour Hud option.
I also spotted a couple of Lucky Boards but by that time I was clutching my goodies and wanted to get home.
PS. Just in case you’re curious this shop, Chain, is now sharing a shopping area with PumeC and PumeC is the skins I wear 99% of the time. Not only do I think these are amazing skins I think they’re great value and you get STUFFED Huds with all the Appliers you need for all your needs. Anyhow since you’re there why not check em out for yourself.
MEH! So ok yet another item which is Maitreya fit only and sadly in this case I can’t get it to fit my SLink body and feet but it’s just too good to ignore and again, of course, YOU may have the right mesh body.
Yup, I just rezzed them in front of my backdrop and snapped, 11 prims in total if you’re interested. You get 2 options this pair with the silver accents or a gold pair.
You will find these at a shop called “Dirty Princess” and I don’t think the LM will take you to the shop with the clothes so when you TP in turn to your right and it’s that one. Ignore the “VIP” tag as we’re all VIP’s which means it’s still a free to join group.
PS if you haven’t got a mesh body and are thinking of getting one then don’t let the fact that a shop/designer only puts out a mesh fit for 1 shape because it takes them time to create fits for all and I have to be honest and say SLink is the mesh fit that you do find most often is the chosen one when an item only has the 1 fit.
AW NOOOOOO! This outfit is just for Maitreya mesh bods only! and of course I’m a SLink girl but not everyone is and so for those of you with Maitreya mesh bods this one is for you.
However, on the good side, the sock and shoes will fit not just my SLink feet and legs but can also be worn with or without a mesh body and feet as long as you have the Alphas to cover.
The “censored” bars are there for another reason and that’s because this outfit doesn’t cover yer boobies! Although the outfit does come with nip covers it, of course, can be worn without.
You get this stunning gold version and an equally stunning black version and it’s all in bits so you can wear the socks on their own or with the shoes and the shoes on their own and the dress on it’s own or the nip covers on their own or the dress and the nip covers or the socks and the nip covers and on and on LOL. Add to all of that you can actually also mix and match with the black version ie black dress with the gold boots so all in all even if you don’t have a SLink or even a mesh body at all still go over to snag and then you can see for yourself what does and doesn’t work for you.
PS The LM should take you right to the gift and I’m racking my brains because I picked this up late last night but although I remember you do have to click on the board and have it “delivered” to you I don’t think I needed to join the group.
UPDATE because I’ve just logged in and I’m wearing the black version of this outfit and just before I took it off to bin it, it suddenly occurred to me to put a jumper on it! and I can assure you that with a jumper over you still get a superb outfit and of course with the nips covered you will be able to go to all the sims without making people blush lol.
I’m so pleased with it and the only reason I’m not showing you a picture of this with a jumper on is because I’m lazy!
Finally, I found an Alpha that fits this fabulous Freebie from Adorsy.
Unfortunately, that turned out to be my SLink full body Alpha LOL.
Because I couldn’t get any of the Alpha layers in my SLink hud to work with this skirt I actually took my whole mesh body off and just used my normal system shape but that didn’t pan out either because there isn’t an Alpha included in this skirt pack and I tried and tried to find an Alpha that I already have in my invent and then my head hurt, I needed a pee and my SLing time was running out and so I stripped off and just put my whole body Alpha on.
So why so much bother? because it’s a fabulous skirt, taken in my nams setting to show you the beautiful colour and details. You get 6 shades of skirt and the same shades in the panties (which you can wear or not wear depending on how cheeky you want to be). Once I’ve had my pee and a pain killer I’ll be putting everything back on.
This is an interesting shop, small in size but packed with some quality tops, skirts and dresses in beautiful Summery colours. I will be double checking but sadly it’s not clear as to what fits you are actually buying. I picked up a few Demos to try on but they too only come in the 1 size.
LM Grabbing and it turns out all of the items in this shop come as a Maitreya size ONLY!
You can’t see it but over my head is a DEMO sign because sadly as stunning as this sexy sci-fi/latex/sheer outfit it’s ONLY for Maitreya bodies! I had actually grabbed this and so many of the other demos because this shop is packed with temptation and I had noticed that the demos are Maitreya only but just assumed it was simply to give you an idea of how it looks but just before I clicked to buy this outfit (149Lds if you want it) I checked and nope I was right/wrong even the full priced items in this shop are Maitreya mesh body fits only!
I have to say I’m a bit gobsmacked that a shop should limit it’s fittings to just the 1 shape and yes I know that this does look a really good fit but there is too much “break through” on the back of it. I could, of course, use Alpha but this and so many of the other outfits are sheer and it would defeat the point to have whole bits of me “alpha’d” out.
Never mind if you have a Maitreya Mesh bod then lucky you or of course just go mesh bodless, I can’t do that I now live in my SLink bod but make sure to try the demos first.
There is Freebies though which is this black latex hat and there is a white version and also a set of Sci-fi glasses/eye shields in 3 shades.
OK, the gloves I’m wearing are in a Lucky Board BUT you only get the 1 shade, however, the full priced pack which comes in Slink, Maitreya and one standard fit only cost 220Lds and I don’t think that it unreasonable esp since these are Bento Gloves. You don’t need Bento hands for these gloves as you take your hands off but you will need a Bento enabled viewer and I guess some sort of Bento Hand Hud, obviously, I just used my SLink one. Anyhow, Demo there for you to try before you buy or of course you can simply kill some SL time and just loiter to grab the free pair or any of the other gifts that come up on the LB’s and there is also a couple of Free Group gifts.
PS the paid for pack contains 10 colours everything between classic white, scorching red and the blackest of black.
Just a mention about the hair which is called Blair and yes I know it sometimes sounds like every Mina hair is my fav when actually I don’t like every Mina hair! Shocking I know but we all know as good as a hair looks in pictures when you put it on your AV it sometimes just doesn’t gel. That doesn’t happen often with Mina hair for me but it still happens and that’s why I always say “try before you buy” or else you may regret it. Anyhow Blair is one of my favs. I’m wearing one of the gray shades not just because it goes with the whole look but we all know that the gray shades in SL are very hard to do as it’s hard to use that shade and not have it look as though the item just hasn’t rezzed properly. You can see that with the detailling she’s managed to make each strand stand out. Even though, I think, this hair is at least 2 years old it’s still top quality.
The warning is because my next post is gonna be one that encourages you to open your wallet, release the moths and spend some Linden’s cos I LOVE what I bought but I equally love this little sweet n free toe ribbon set.
A hud with some nice colours in it and comes in, I think, 3 mesh feet fits but FREE for you to find out for yourself. They’re in the ZD Zhora Design shop and there is also a set of Lucky Chairs.
OK now for the sad reality sh*te because at the moment in the UK a tower block that housed over 600 people is burning down. Lots of people have been saved, lots are in hospital and sadly since this is an ongoing event many people are still trapped so no one knows what the end will be for so many people. It gave me pause for thought, should I do such “trite” post considering what’s happening but then I thought “of course I should”. It’s been a rough few months from massive and horrendous terrorist attacks not just in the UK but all over the world but there has also been many smaller but because they’re personal tragedies ie the loss of a parent, sibling, child, loss of a job, home, personal possessions and on and on and because they’re so close to home even more painful. All we can do is remember to rejoice in what we have. I know that for a lot of people it’s hard to do but as someone who has enough RL crapola thrown at her, I can assure you that we all need to just stop occasionally and remember to appreciate what we do have and not what we have lost or never had in the first place.
