The Drang & SAO shop isn’t a name I’m familiar to me but this top…I’m sure I already have this buried somewhere in my invent so I’m wondering if I’ve picked it up from an event or something and didn’t get around to visiting the shop. The pants are also from the group gift wall and both items come with a nice hud of colours and when I returned to LM grab I grabbed more of the gifts.
So here are the details, the Drang & SAO group normally costs but as a moving shop gift it’s free for the moment…go now!
The group gifts do cost 1Lds for group members and 5Lds for anyone else which is actually really nice as I don’t know how much the group costs to join when it’s back up to full price but it means that people can pick up some real quality clothes for just 5lds without having to pay to join the group.
The lucky board prizes are also pretty darn decent and nice to see some men’s wear as well.
Added to that there is a 250Ld worth of shop credit…and yes it’s trans.
This newest gift from Coco Designs is their usual quality. A linked shirt, cardie and tie and I won’t be keeping it.
The only reason I won’t be keeping it is that the grey reminds me too much of unrezzedness (it’s a word!). Obviously close up you can see the fine knit detailing and with the addition of the OTT cuffs and collar is pretty interesting.
I’m not too mad as the bold red pants I’m wearing are also a new Coco Design gift. Simply fab, tight fit all the way down to the ankle where they have been split which makes wearing boots/shoes/sneakers look a bit more natural.
PS. Yes, that is a new Mina hair but I don’t know anything about it yet.
I can’t remember what the last gift from the GGVG shop was but I do remember it was good so I had high hopes when the notice came through and yeah it’s a goodie.
(Not the glasses, boots or wearable book).
I’m loving this very business-like/ plain jane look. As always I totally appreciate that the pants and blouse are separate esp the pants as they are just great basics to be teamed up with so many other items you may have. Top-quality as well.
There are more gifts inc more of this outfit in different colours, you have to pick each item up separately. I also spotted in the small gift box a free pair of earrings.
BTW The other thing I remembered about this shop is a very sexy mesh/flexi dress which shows how flexi still has a role to play in SL when it’s done right so have a wander around and I bet you will spot the dress I’m talking about as well.
These pants are a new gift from the Mogul shop. I have blogged the other gift so you may recognise that and if not then it’s going to be a nice surprise.
These really are fabulous pants but there is a little “but” and that is the length of them. Looking at this picture you’re probably wondering what the issue is as they look excellent and they ARE they just look better when worn with basic black heeled shoes that allows the length to blend in more…you will see what I mean when you get them.
Look a bit closer and you may also spot that the top I’m wearing has changed in this next picture and that’s because I went to the Salt & Pepper shop and spotted that they have a Free Group Gift near to the paid-for Group Gifts.
This comes with a small hud and the black colour would have blended in better with the pants but I do like this colour and you can see the details just a bit better in this colour.
The reason I keep on saying “one of the big free groups” is because these groups are so busy and the notices come at you thick and thin which is great unless like me you’re in so many groups/subscribers that I get drowned in notices. So I have a tendency to join and grab and then unjoin but I do recommend these groups for yourself.
PS. This side shot of the new Mina hair shows off that little uplift behind the hairband and OMG that colour!
The freebies are pants you can see and the shoes you can’t see as for the top an old purchase.
We have snow in the UK, ok thin and crispy snow which is pretty to look at but treacherous underfoot so I’m staying indoors where I’m as snug as a bug.
Yeah, I should have guessed I wasn’t the first to see these ISON leather pants as the ISON shop is heaving with fluffy orange clouds of the unrezzed grabbing the goodies.
OK, so I may not be the “first” to show you these gifts but I’m glad I got them. You have a massive palette of 60 gorgeous subtle natural shades. All the shades are very shiny almost a latex shine which I think when teamed up with a neutral top looks brilliant.
The other gift is a matching pair of strappy shoes with another big colour hud.
I could be mistaken as it has been a long time since I was at the ISON shop but I would have said it was a paid-for group but not now, it’s free to join but I’d rush over to join the group as it may not be free for too much longer and of course these gifts may also disappear soon.
You will find the gifts right at the main entrance, along with all the fluffy orange clouds, and you still have to pay 1Ld for each gift which is refunded.
These pants come from a shop called Dreams you do get a big hud of colours however the colours are all very dark which is a shame as they do hide lot of the interesting details but at least you can see that sheer panel with the embroidery and they also appear slightly darker in this picture than they do inworld.
These are a “Suna” group gift and they’re on the wall with the other free or cheap groups.
The Dreams shop group does cost 50Lds to join and there is a wall of Lucky Boards as well as group gifts and a discount on each purchase for group members.
DON’T rush off without checking the wall of new items esp the “Business Pants”. So tempting! Only 50Lds or 40Lds for a 2 shade pack and then I spotted that you can buy the fatpack of 22 shades for only 125Lds or 100Lds, obviously the lower price is for group members. The only thing that stopped me from buying is of course the fit…my SLink P addiction saves me a lot of money lol but if I do cave into temptation you will see me wearing them in my next post. I’m going to try the demo on again just to see if I can get away with it.
