I went to a very retro event called “The 60ties Shopping & Treasure Hunt”. Lots of stalls and lots of gifts, I don’t know if when they say “Hunt” that they mean when you click on some of the gift boxes you have to answer a question. I grabbed 5 boxes before I TP’d out and since none of them came with a question to answer I’m not sure how simple/hard they are. I’m going to have to return at a later date but if you have some free time and I do know some of the other events running are super packed then you can’t go wrong wandering around this event.
This outfit didn’t come from the event, I found a small Emerald Courture satelite shop at the event and decided since it had been a while since I was last there to check out the main shop and scored not just this two-piece but some other gifts.
This is a “Fantastic Monday” group gift however I think I just paid “0Ld’s” and thats all. You may miss it because it’s just a little white gift box next to the Fantastic Monday poster and I only bought it as I was curious as to what it was so it was a nice suprise how good it turned out to be.
The shop has updated itself since I was last there which is nice to see. Fortunately all the freebies/group gifts/lucky chairs and special offers are still grouped together in the room to your left as you go inside so it’s easy to find it all.
PS. There are a few hunts going on at the Emerald Couture and I just had to get the “The ice cream cone” hunt gift so check them out as well.
Sometimes I’m at a bit of a loss when I find something that is actually pretty darn good but it’s “just not me” as I find I struggle to style it but just because I struggle doesn’t mean you will.
That very structured style really does stand out, no pun intended. You get all the main mesh bodies plus a hud with I believe 5 colour options which also allow you to change the 2 main parts.
If I saw someone wearing this dress I would zoom on them and maybe even use the hud I have which actually gives me a list of what someones wearing as it does just stand out and I’m always on the lookout for something pretty different and thats what this dress is.
This is the “ETO2” hunt prize and what you’re looking for is a small pink gift box and you pay 1Ld for it. On my return visit I found another hunt prize which is a small oyster and if you buy that you get a pair of floral sunglasses and both of these hunt prizes are so easy to find I’m not even going to give you a hint.
I do believe the Ari Pari group costs to join but there are also free for all gifts. One of them called I believe “Bloom Dress” and has been a freebie for many years, get it. You do pay 1Ld which is returned to you. The patterns are very floral, summery and if I didn’t have this new dress to show you I’d have happily reblogged that dress as it maybe a “classic” design but I’ve always liked the bold flowers.
I’m back, tbh I was only away for one night but I had to do some RL work catch up to do before I could log in. When I finally got inworld I ended up TPing all over the place and yet it was a link to a marketplace shop that gave me the freebie I was most happiest with.
It does come with a “starter hud” and I know I changed the shade of the socks but my SL time ran out so I don’t know how many shades you actually get.
The boots can be worn without the socks as well so you may have some jeans that can be tucked into them.
Since it’s been a while since I visited the Smesh shop I had my fingers crossed for a new freebie and here it is.
If I stood side ways you would see that this dress has lovely “pert” boobie shape to it, you would also see lots of gaps.
I think this Mina cap/hair suits it well if I’d had a pair of white go go boots in my invent that really would have made what I think is a bit of a 60ties vibe.
There are other gifts both for the Smesh and other free groups. So check out the walls near to where you TP in and also the gifts behind the reception desk.
PS. The title of this post is because I’m escaping the confines of my home and heading off to see a theater performance and staying overnight in a hotel…sweet sweet freedom! So I will be back on Fri but I can’t promise a post as I don’t have anything else lined up so far.
After a fruitless search for a lovely new freebie I finally scored what I consider a really good one.
Although my face doesn’t look like it I’m really happy with this romper from Justice. It certainly has the texture of I think it’s terry cloth? Some nice detailing with the string belt, folds etc. For me the biggest bonus is the colour pack, 20 shades in the hud and they’re all my shades, just a really good colour palette.
There are other gifts in the Justice shop which I do remember showing you the tops but as usual I didn’t show you the accessories.
The Jusice & Underground shop are oposite each other and I suspect the Underground shop may have gifts in as well but my time was now limited in SL so I’ve left that for a return visit.
To find the group gifts walk into the Justice shop and turn right and on the wall just inside the doorway is where you find this and the other Justice gifts but there is a SL F&O gift of what I would call a ripped t-shirt dress which is very good and to find that walk straight ahead in the shop and it’s easy to spot.
I can’t remember if someone sent me a link to this freebie or it was in a note/notice so thats why I’m clueless lol.
A most unique shirt and sneaker set which can be worn as separates. I’m not wearing the other accessories. earrings, necklace and an ice cream, simply because I forgot they were included and it’s only when I’m LM grabbing that I remembered I’d not put them on.
To me this outfit has a bit of a retro feel and it has allowed me to dust off an old Mina hair called Doris. I rarely wear his hair because that beehive is hard to style with most of the clothing I show you, however, I do remember that when teamed up with a tiara which fits so well at the base of the beehive it also made for a great updo evening look.
