Sorry, most certainly NOT Free.

I’d only just started my trawling of the We ❤ Role-Play event so I don’t know if there are any freebies but I suspect there are on each or most stands a very low priced items you can purchase which in this case wasn’t this dress.

I’ve gone to one of my fav sims, it represents Yorkshire which is a part of the UK that I love to take the picture.  Sorry, I can’t remember the exact price I paid for the dress or even the hat but I think it was about 280Lds for the dress and the hat is one of the token priced gifts so it was only 10Lds.

I was just going to buy the hat and scurry away from temptation but damnit I just had to grab the demo as well and I had to buy it then and there because not only do on you get a stunning gown for both roleplaying or swanning around SL like Lady Muck it comes as SEPARATES!

I’ve not had the chance to try out the jacket, blouse and skirt with other items from my invent but I don’t think it will be hard to find other items to mix and match with it.

I chose the “Garnet” option but there are other colour choices, Maitreya only but as you can see from the design there should be no issues with fitting it and TRY the demo first just to make sure.

You will find this on the SK (Sweet Kajira) stall@We<3 Role-Play Event

PS.  As mentioned the hat is only 10Lds and you get the matching colour band to go with all of the gowns.

UPDATE.  The sim is down.  Hopefully not for too long as even I want to get back to check out the rest.

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.

Oh, you want boots with your pants?

Had a lot of fun taking this photo – great prop and pose by Le Poppycock for a feature film action hero shot! Neve have a new release at the WeDoSL Black Fair – and it’s SO COOL! This is the Prohibit Jacket and Bootlegger Pant set. The Prohibit Jacket can be worn with or without the skirt section and the Bootlegger Pants are a combination of well fitted legging and heels. YES, that’s right – leggings with boots attached *faint* – why have I not got this in my real life *shakes fist*.

so many ways to wear this set, you can do the full Monty of assassin – or go completely the other end of the spectrum by using the leather off function and using the sweetest colours. Autumn is a great time to drag out all those soft buttery browns and taupe shades !

Of course – it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t show the outfit in PINK would it ❤ Really, it’s so flexible the skirt part of the jacket can even be made sheer , which gives it such a feminine look – you’d never guess it was the same outfit ! Hats off to you Neve team – FANTASTIC STUFF!!

Just randomness.

I’m doing a bit of random sim hopping which is how I landed on to this fantasy/sandbox/RP/sim.

I hate purple which is about the only bad thing I can say about it lol.

Don’t worry if you hear the sounds of gunfire it’s not it’s just the excellent fireworks overhead.

I’ve saved this to use as a backdrop but even I occasionally use Sandboxes esp when our sim is down for maintenance.

You will have to be an “adult” to visit and this is a welcoming sim to all, from Furries to OMG’s everyone is welcome.  I like sandboxes like this because some sandboxes are used by people as pick up joints and I find more often than not on sims where everyone is welcomed they have a strong anti-bullying/bothering policy and these are the sims where people leave you alone to just do your own thing.

It’s a Yurt.(Freebie ‘n’ other stuff),

Today is the first time I’ve been able to work my way through the 25Ld Tue list in so long so it was lovely to see a few of my fav shops have a special offer out and as I was working my way through the list I came across a shop name I didn’t recognise and it looks like it’s new to SL as well as me because the gift set out for anyone to grab is titles “Grand Opening Gift” and it’s this Yurt.

When I first rezzed it I was a bit emm nope but then I zoomed in and though actually not too bad at all! 

Nice texturing and details and when you open the door it’s a bit like the Tardis in that inside seems an awful lot bigger than you think from the outside.

Enough space to do cartwheels.

I just snagged and ran but when I get back inworld I’m going to be checking out what looks like a pretty big sim wide shop I can’t wait to see what else is there.

You don’t have to go hunting for either this gift or the 25Ld offer (not telling you what that is but it’s a wearable) as they’re both just in the small gazebo type building at the LM.

Timely reminder.(Freebies@Redeux).

First, let me just make it clear that the warehouse I’m showing you is NOT a freebie or a cheapie.  I personally get a bit frustrated when someone posts a picture in a freebie Flickr group only to find that it’s the tiny little pinkie ring and not the stunning outfit, hair, shoes etc they’re wearing so I like to make it clear before I start, so the building is not a freebie but you may just need it!You will find me for the next hour and a half in this warehouse because I returned to the Redeux event and OH Dear! I’ve picked up not just all of the gifts but there are so many superb bargains and I’ve spent all my Lindens! I even ran out of money before I got to the Gacha’s which I suppose is a good thing as just the freebies alone I snagged will take forever to unpack and sort out. I’ve not unpacked anything yet but I can see that it’s going to be good stuff.

As for the stuff I’ve bought most of those only cost me 25-35Lds and the most expensive was a selection of wrinkled rugs for 50lds.

So hurry up and check this event out you won’t regret it.

A diet that works,50Ld SALE.

Lots of great steam punky style jewelry, clothes, shoes  n stuff all for 50Lds only, but make sure you check before you buy.  I  love this shop, Pixel Box, and I’ve got oodles of things from previous sales and treated myself to this little number, a skeleton AV dressed up in all her finery.

Please don’t let the idea of “steam punk” put you off as there is a whole shop of really interesting pieces.

OK back to RL and don’t worry I like CAKE to much to get this skinny.

PS there is a couple of GG’s but time ran out so have a look around I think any freebies are on the console tables.
