I love to hand sew for two reasons, my sewing machine scares me and it’s hard to listen to the TV when I’ve got a small motor running. This is why the first thing I spotted when I put on this dress is the dotted line at the neckline as it looks just like a simple tacking line.
This dress has a hint of retro to me esp that colour but if it’s not to your taste then there is a dark floral pattern as well.
I was at an event, which I will blog about probably tomorrow, and one of the stalls there is Emi’s Attic. The name was familiar so I did a quick TP to the main shop which is where I found this group gift. Then I ran out of SL time which is why I will check out the rest of the event tomorrow.
Always so happy to get up on a Saturday to do my Second Life sale shopping ! I’ll list below the sales I shall be doing, got up a little later today so have only had time to grab a couple of items. My jacket above is actually FREE from the Luxury store for the Energy Weekend Price sale – just join the Energy Price group (its free) and snap it up. You get a Hud with ten colours included and many mesh body fits. I also bought the boots from Promagic in the Saturday Sale – $75L per colour, got the black and sand tones. Happy Weekend Shopping !
I had to check and nope this FLF offer from Junbug is not listed on the Seraphim blog post. To be fair to the Seraphim blog they’re usually on the ball with their lists so this may have been put out super late or since the group gift hasn’t changed for a very long time then maybe this and the other FLF offer also haven’t changed for a very long time.
I’m not complaining as it does mean I’ve managed to indulge my need to be a fancy pants.
I do own a few gowns in SL because I like many do occasionally tart my AV up and swan around like Lady Muck, the rest of the time I’m wearing the last item I blogged, covered in demos signs or one of my “goto” basics.
This only comes in 2 fits and both of them were a great fit even for me. There is a demo available. As for the colour it says “lemon” but although the editing has made it slightly darker to me it’s definately a light cream. If you want something bolder then the other FLF is a shoulderless gown with a tight bodice and flowing skirt that Junbug is known for.
As soon as I saw that this Mina hair is a FLF offer I logged in and got ready to model it for you and show you all the extra’s it comes with but I ran out of time and now all I can show you is the poster picture.
That blindfold is just plain sexy, look at the folds and the way the hair strands hang over it, just a touch of quality. Then check out the details on the side, you get some absolutely lovely colours for the blind everything from classic black satin to pink satin. Then to top it all off there is a small style hud which has the blind fold over or under the hair and best of all the hair without the blindfold.
The reason I like the hair as much without the blindfold as with is because I have found this hair has a style which really goes well when wearing a chunky scarf, coat or jumper. So you may see it more as I live RL seasons in SL and I’m hoping to find some nice winter wear soon.
YEAH here it comes…..this isn’t the only “kinky” hair Mina has in her shop, there is a full length hair with blindflold, the one with the neck brace(?) and the way the hair hangs with that one is just again perfect styling. There are others that I could mention but I’m sure you will check those out.
PS. Yeah I’m also going to check out the other FLF hair from Exile because why not, we all love great hair.
A random drop in took me to a shop called “YM shop” where there is a big wall of group gifts. Some old, some older and some nope and also some ooo’s.
This dress comes in 2 parts the ruffle and dress plus a decent sized hud of really nice colours. I also spotted shoes and hair which I hadn’t tried on when I first did this post but now I’ve tried them I’m editing this post as they too are not bad. The shoes are really ankle boots with an interesting design and although the hair isn’t “Mina” quality lol it’s not bad at all.
Make sure to check out the Casper vend boards as well, I notice you do have to pay 1Ld which is returned to you.
A couple of days ago I did a post and mentioned that either I or SL were borking and one of the outfits I wanted to show you wouldn’t turn up so today since SL seems to be behaving itself I returned to the GeMyles shop paid another 5Lds to join the group and then 1Ld to buy this outfit and as you can see this time it was sent to me.
Although the editing has darkened the colour some what I’m super pleased with all of the shades you get in the fat pack hud, 32 with a texture and 32 plain I believe. The shoes are also included, SLink only, and when you use the hud to change the cat suit(?) the shoes change to the matching colour.
As I was pulling my pose there was a lot of notices from the MLM Frees and Offers group for other goodies so if you’re not already in that group you may want to remain in it.
Now I’m going to tease you with my hair.
It’s a Mina hair of course, NOT available at the moment. It’s so new there isn’t even a demo out but you know that as soon as it is I will be telling you more. The reason I decided to use this hair is just check out that colour, what an unusual colour combo and yet it works! Actually the best thing about the hair is not the colour palette but the add on that comes with it which of course I will tell you all about it when the hair is for sale.
I’m going to give you two links the first is to where the group gifts/lucky boards etc are in the GeMyles shop and the other link is to my previous post as it mentions the other freebies which are in a different area.
I’ve already begun my weekend sale shopping and snapped up this old well by Moon Sha for just $30L (30L Saturday Sale) You get a 1Li décor version plus an Adult & PG version for 2Li – it looks brilliant out in my garden. Listed below all the sales I’ll be doing – see you there?
