Hint of retro

I’ve been busy remodelling my pool area the last few days, I wanted a hint of retro and I’m really pleased with how its going. I thought this new dress from Luxe Paris set just the right tone to wander around that space! This is the “Feuilles” frock, superb all over print and snug capped sleeves lend a vintage feel. Smartly tight in all the right places and the colour palette is deeeelicious! This comes in standard and mesh body sizes – I’m wearing it over my Slink Physique body and no alphas used. My necklace is part of a set from Darkmouse “fossilised” for just $25L you get the earrings, necklace and bracelet – fantastic deal!

Take Everything!(Freebies).

So I was just meandering from one shop to another not really expecting to find much but in the end in 2 of the shops I decided to grab the GG’s even though if I was to be honest I didn’t think were going to be blog worthy but SMH(smack my head) they turned out to be much better than I had expected.

Yes I know a pretty classic/standard/common style but the texture and colours take it up a notch from a lot of the other freebies.  Honestly really pleased with it.

xxxcoatuse2

This was the other thing I picked up but didn’t think I would be showing you but it turns out to be really good and with all the standard mesh bod fits it gets as snug as a bathing suit can be.  Both of these and a dress come from the same shop called “E&N”(Elgund & Nilsson Fresh Female Fashion).

Then I had meandered into the “IZIGRI” shop which is close by and picked this up.

xxxcoatuseurb

If I had thought it was a “romper” in style I might have just binned it without trying it first but check it out! Great colours with a hint of retro!

This is why I take almost everything I see because sometimes the pictures the shop uses or because of the size of the pictures you don’t really get to see how tasty the gift is.  So a very nice surprise on a cold, wet, windy Sunday afternoon.

PS the Izigri gift seems to be set for anyone to buy for 0lds, it’s the little bag on the reception desk.

I hate friggin Gacha’s esp this one!

xxxhouseuse

No matter how many times I hit it with my pan, ok paid 60Lds, I didn’t win the prize I wanted which of course is the house behind me.

xxxhouseuse2

Although I’m happy(ish) with the wins I won it means I spent my last lindens on just “stuff” and whats even worse is that in this shop there is a couple of items for my home I really want but will now have to wait till I allow myself some spending LD’s, yes I have another “weekender” booked as I have been working so hard recently I really need it and I also need to start saving for it.

This is one of those shops where a whole area is taken up with the builds, furniture and decor set out for you to buy.  What I’m planning on returning for is a retro/vintage style fireplace, light fixture and sink,  pretty unique and fabulous for styling your home….can you tell I’m not sure which time period these pieces are from but I would say either Art Deco or near to it.  I’m just inworld checking and I think most things are from the 1920 ties or there abouts.  I’ve also spotted there is an MP shop so you can see the style I’m talking about.

There are FREEBIES and of course, I’m just showing you the 1 of them and actually I didn’t even bother taking it home unpacking it etc but of course, I’ve snagged it.  Super realistic and only 1 prim!

xxxhouseuse3

Some of the items you have to pay a linden for but it is paid right back at yer, some of the items in the small display shop are set for 0Lds.  Some lovely old pictures, books, a table emmm wracking my brains now and apart from this weird ass picture of a rooster drinking coffee I can’t remember what else there is but a nice little selection of home decor items./

There is a notice there asking for “bloggers” and I would be so tempted to apply, I’m not going to, as this stuff is so interesting and so reasonably priced I would feel good about showing it to people but I prefer not to be a blogger for the couple of shops I do because I like the people I work with.

PS I did have a lovely time wandering around and you will notice outside of the cafe is a sign and also a free cup of coffee for you to pick up so PICK it up! as it’s a prim and again exc quality and a great prop for your home.

Any excuse to go to my fav beachy sims and this black and white retro bather/jumpsuit was a perfect excuse.

Just a “vanity shot” but even from this distance you can see how much I stand out.

xxxboatcrossgreen2

I used photo editing in this shot just for fun, but it’s turned the white into a creamy colour when it’s really black and white.  A fantastic little sexy number, get it now and tuck it away for the coming Summer months unless of course, you live your SL life in year round summer.  TBH I simply grabbed and ran from the KOM shop so I can’t tell you much more but it’s FREE for ALL so just buy for zero.

Then I quickly TPed back to my studio.  Last night well past my beddy byes, I came inworld and binned so much it hurt but it was also good to be able to work out the keepers, binners, donators etc and although sometimes I have to bin excellent items I have to work out if they’re ever really going to be used again and if not no matter how good they are they have to go.

So basically I came across a folder of items from Revival which I have blogged before and like a hoarder before I make the final decision I have to look at everything and what I hadn’t appreciated before was not only how lovely this simple round cushion is but what damned good poses it has in it.

xxxboatcrossgreen3

His, her & couple poses with gentle slow and sexy moves, perfect not just for your home but also pretty good for taking pictures.  Sometimes poses in furniture maybe good but it’s not “photogenic” good which is why when using a prop we often have to use our own poses but again this one came with some really good ones.  I’m going to log in to grab the Revival LM and check that all the excellent Group Gifts are still out and to make sure this one is also set out so if you missed that old post or you forgot to go get em this is a second chance.

Yesss it’s all there.  Simply join the Free Revival group and start grabbing yourself some quality home decor items.
