Feeling “Majestic”.(Dollarbie(?)).

I’ve never been booted off so many sims or out of so many peoples homes but fortunately, I’m not taking it personally as all I’m doing is old LM hopping and so many shops have either moved, shut up or shut up and moved to the Marketplace which is what seems to have happened to the “Majestic” shop.

I have a feeling that these were full priced when sold inworld but are now just one of the few Dollarbies on offer.  I bought these and the valentine pair, the cropped top and the denim shirt and even though all of them only come in standard mesh fits I had no issues with the “S” size.

I binned the rest but only because I already own very similar items but these beige textured ones are excellent and both this pair and the plain one in the pack, yes you get 2 in each pack are keepers for me.

One for me.(New Mina@Salon52 & 10Ld Dress).

This dress is more “me” than the previous ones in the last post.

Again from the sYs Marketplace shop, if you’ve not read my last post then scroll back and check that one out for some exc offers.  There is a Dollarbie in this style but it’s black however there is a lot more colour options and each one only costs 10Lds and I’m wearing the nude shade.

I’m really pleased with it, very pretty, casual and summery.

This is the back of my new Mina, called Serene.

I know and you lot will know that Mina has a brilliant range of plaited hair, short, long, super long etc she has them so as always LM to the main shop to try them all on before you decide which one suits you best.

PS.  Do you remember the “The Walking Dead” dreadlock hair I mentioned a few posts ago?  I saw a male AV wearing that hair in the shop as I LM grabbed and wow he stood out, he looked so different from the crowd.  In a world of cool sexy people, he was cooler than most lol.

As for the hair I’m wearing it comes from the latest round of Salon 52.  I knew Salon 52 was open but like a fool, I couldn’t see it on the Mina sim and it’s because it’s not on the Mina sim lol. I think it’s probably an event which changes location each time so don’t use your old LM or a Mina LM use this new one.

Following Orders.(Dollarbies, Cheapies).

Damn instead of SLing I had to hoover up, dust and basically do boring RL stuff but once I’d done that I did what Faith suggested and logged in to the Marketplace and Bloody Nora would you believe the first shop I found on the Marketplace with decent Dollarbies/Cheapies was one I’d checked out inworld yesterday as I was old LM mooching.

So the “sYs” inworld shop may have gone but the marketplace shop is packed with lots and lots of bloddy good Dollarbies/Cheapies.

This necklace was the most expensive thing I bought, a massive 5Lds lol.  It’s as attractive at the back as it is from the front. The dress is a Dollarbie.

Not a massive fan of this outfit but that’s me and not the outfit, one thing for sure is I’ve not seen this design anywhere else so you will stand out wearing it.  I think us SL addicts can spot a unique look a mile away lol.

And last but not least is this dress and I think you can see it again is just not my style but it’s 100% shop quality, 100% unique and might just be 100% you.

There are demos available just in case but again everything shown, apart from the necklace, are dollarbies.

DOH. I’ve had to scuttle in from the sunshine because I don’t think I made it clear that not only are there these Dollarbies but there are many more, a nice variety to chose from…scuttling back outside to the GLORIOUS sunshine and I hope wherever you are the sun is shining upon you, unless you’re an emo or a Vampire and in that case may the darkness hide you.

Now that I’m actually logged into the MP getting the details for this post I’ve found another dress which does look like my style so for only 10Lds I’ve added that to my basket.  I have a NEW Mina so if this dress is as good as I hope it is then in my next post you will see that as well as the new hair.

Staying in.(Dollarbie & Cheapie).

First TP of the day=first crash of the day so I decided to remain logged out and checked out the SL Marketplace to save myself some grief and I found some things but it was these excellent basic jeans and the glasses which got me logging back inworld.

I won’t say these jeans haven’t been blogged before, but I can’t find them in my invent, if I have then sorry….not sorry because there is nothing basic about these basic jeans and such a handy addition to any invent.  If you think you already have this style still pick them up as you may find these Dollarbies/Promo from Shiva shop have a more up to date texture.

I was so impressed with these I braved a TP to go to the Shiva inworld shop and these are also there, on the wall with the other colours but these “tan” ones are clearly marked as “Promo”.  I also spotted in the back of the shop Freebies inc a very pretty pastel Summery dress which I was actually going to grab from the Marketplace but I couldn’t be bothered…keeping it real here lol.

(((EXTREME CLOSE UP!)))

Am I the only person who was sooo happy when I was diagnosed as being as blind as a bat?. OK, I’m not that bad but in RL I rock glasses and in fact, the ones I wear are almost as identical to these but I only have the 1 pair while this 10Ld version off the Marketplace comes with a hud of colours and all of them are good.  I didn’t bother to check out the Rebellion inworld shop as I’d already pushed my luck in TPing to the one shop but will try it later.

Today I’m going to Pinterest, plant seeds and SL like a pro because I’m sick of dealing with dumb people…and it’s not even lunchtime!

PS.  Those glasses are, obviously, pretty unisexed and you do get a resizer in the hud so go get em boys, and by that I mean Moz lol.

Wrong top. (Freebies).

Seeing how many people are at “WellMade” shop I have a feeling you will be seeing their newest freebie everywhere and why not indeed lol.

I went for the top only because I didn’t spot that the shorts are inc with this freebie. This top isn’t “wrong” but what I also didn’t spot is that you get a hud which gives you two textures, this one with large Sunflowers and one with a smaller Sunflower texture which I prefer but I’d taken my picture already so I decided just to go with this one.  Something so country girly about that top.  LOTS of fits and separates.

There are more gifts at the back of the WellMade shop and you know I just couldn’t walk/run away without grabbing this one.

Again, separates, oodles of fits, a 2 shade Hud and as you can see you can change each item separately.  Not 100% sure I’ve not shown you this before as it’s not a keeper for me BUT that’s only for me, you all know I have an SL and an RL gym/sporty clothes addiction and the only reason this isn’t a “keeper” is that I have so many of these outfits already.

I was actually looking at the Welmade Marketplace shop where the top outfit is actually for sale and I was just about to buy it for I think 7Lds when I notice that it said it was FREE inworld.  I will give you the MP shop, as well as the inworld LM as there are some nice Dollarbies in the MP shop which I don’t think, are in the inworld shop so check out the MP and the inworld shop.

PS.  As always a disclaimer, I ain’t no fitness freak! I’ve just found that good quality lycra helps to control the flabby wobble when I do work out and as for bathing suits, sod bikini’s we all love a good control panel lol.

Unsublte.(10Ld Marketplace)

I will admit that I have for once deliberately cut out some of the shoes in this picture.

I got this outfit from the MP, yes I MP whilst I slurped my morning coffee and listening to the news, and found what I’m hoping are some decent items for even decenter(sic) prices and I will admit that this 10Ld offer hasn’t disappointed.

Obviously, you will recognise the style of pants, a pretty common template in SL but it’s a great style and the colouring and shading are excellent. The top is ok and I hate the shoes lol but then you will know by now I am not a fan of those stacked style shoes.  So they’re already binned because before I logged out I put on a plain cropped sweater and changed the shoes into flat sneakers/trainers and for just 10Ld I’ve changed it to something that is much more my style even if it’s pink.

PS. Only available in the MP and fingers crossed the rest of my MP purchases turn out to be as nice.

Old Friends.(Dollarbies)

I promise I will stop shopping on the Marketplace but while I was there I came across some old buildings which I know I have somewhere buried deep into my invent and because they still have such a wow factor and I do know some of you lot do like a good background I thought I’d do an easy Sunday morning post.

All pictures were taken just using my sim setting so you can see the atmospheric lighting built into the build.

You can see by the window frame to the left that there is a lot of that painted on look going on.

But seriously look at how good that texturing is especially when I know that most if not all of these builds are 9 years old!

I’ve taken pictures of random builds so there is a warehouse, toilet, apartment block etc.  I always thought it would be an amazing and a pretty unique way to live in SL by rezzing one of the apartment blocks in the middle of a desolate plot and just decorating one or two of the rooms to live in leaving the rest empty.

Each build does come decorated outside, this is the warehouse, and now the BUT…primmy but for those of us who want interesting backgrounds OR think of this, yes love it or hate it Valentines is creeping up on us but if you do Valentine in SL rezz one of these and then create a little oasis of romance and snuggling in the middle of one of these builds.  The cold and bare walls will make your little scene just that little bit more special.
