Old Friends.(Dollarbies).

There are some shops in SL that I visit on a regular basis waiting for the newest Group Gift and !g0 is one of them and nope no new Group gift.

Then I had a brainwave because did you know that there is a discount and gift department? F*ck yeah I kid you not!

Lots and lots of Dollarbies and although they’re marked as Group Gifts they’re old ones so you don’t even need to be in the group just pay a Linden and they’re yours.

Just the top in this case…I swear SL is just like RL where I have my fav jeans.  I’m now wondering if I can get away with green jeans in RL as well.

Some of the clothes are older and come in the S,M,L etc sizes and some are newer and come in Mesh bod fits.

To find the discounted items and the Dollarbies you can either use the shop TP, it’s the stack of boxes near the LM or walk to the first door of the shop to your right and they’re upstairs.

Think about joining the !g0 group it’s one of the groups I have been in almost from the beginning. I LOVE the !g0 style I also love the regular Group Gifts and often a certain colour of a new release item has been set to half price for Group members and then, of course, we have CHRISTMAS! I know it’s way too early to be thinking of Christmas and Advent Calendars but when it comes to !g0 and their Calendar if you’re going to just do one this year make it !g0’s as the gifts are outstanding.  You do have to be in the group but it’s ONLY 50Lds! Still the same piddling price all these years later.

Check out the whole shop as there is everything from floaty hipster to costumes.  I have an amazing hat/hair from here which when I feel like wandering SL dressed up like a lady and not some cheap-ass blogger emblazoned with “demo” signs I put on a gown and this hat/hair and float around like Lady Muck or if I’m feeling it I pull on my Ballet shoes and the best Tutu which I bought from !g0 and pirouette my way through SL.

PS. I think that fox is stalking me.

Don’t give in.(Super bargains so read the blurb).

Just as I was about the throw the towel in and give up looking for “that” ooo freebie/gift etc I put on an old pair of Ricielli shoes and YES!

Ricielli always has one of those paid for (non) hunts, so basically there is a big board and on it is what is in each hunt item and for a piddling 15Lds you can buy yourself shoes, dresses, tops, pants etc

The hunt which is going on in the main shop is actually still the Valentines one, TBH I was expecting it to have changed to a Halloween themes one but more about that later.   The TEMPTATION is so bad as there so much and I know from all the stuff I’ve got in the past its bloddy good stuff but honestly, I could just go Bat Sh*t crazy and buy the lot but this time I just bought the top LOL.  This top comes in 2 colours this dark greay and a pink one.  The shoes I am wearing but obviously, you can’t see are old “hunt” items and then there are these pants.

The one thing a lot of people may miss about the Ricielli shop is that there is a secret shop STUFFED with ALL of the old hunt items.  In fact, there are old Halloween items there as well.  Some of them are pretty old now but it’s hard to know which are old and which are the newer stock because the Ricielli stuff just doesn’t seem to age.  I picked up these leather pants from the old hunt section and for 15Lds and I thought they came in a limited 3 colour palette but in fact, you get a really good colour hud option with the ability to change the belt and hoops as well as the main body of the pants.

The top and pants come in so many mesh fits honestly you will have no problem finding the one for you or of course if you’re a non-mesh person then you will easily find an alpha to suit.  I also think when you click on the item before you buy it tells you whats in it so you can check for yourself.

PS. I couldn’t help it plus I think “Bridget” the hair I am wearing goes great with this outfit but Bridget is one of the Mina Gacha hairs that I adore.  It only costs 100Lds a try and although obviously, the colour palette you win is a risk you don’t just get 1 shade you get a whole colour palette of that shade.  Again you can try the Demo out first and if you like Bridget but don’t want to risk the colours then check out Faith and I don’t mean Faithless Babii lol.  Faith is another Mina with that curly, hippy chic look to it.

Mondays Kiss (freebies).

I’m kissing (keep it simple stupid) it this morning because I got so distracted with the remodelling of my new house I ran out of time.  Sometimes when I have a new home I simply delete the old one leaving all the internal decor items where they are and then spend my time picking through them to see what I’m going to keep and what I’m deleting and so as I was doing this I just took a moment to pop a couple of items on and snapped a few shots off.

OK confession time, I’ve either forgotten to pick up the NEW Asteria gift or I accidentally deleted it as I tried on quite a few of the Group Gifts set out for us and so what I am showing you I have shown you before BUT in my defence I’ve not shown you these textures.

XXXUrbD

A simple strapless romper, the belt is a perfect fit and you get a choice of sizes and since it comes as a separate it’s very handy for going with not just this outfit but also jeans, shorts, skirts etc although the romper itself is familiar this lovely leafy flowery texturing isn’t.  There is a choice of colours as well for you to choose from.

XXXUrbD2

I have shown you this dress and I know I have because even though that post was actually now quite a long time ago I still have this dress in my invent but in the mossy green shade and this time I wanted to show you a different colour.  There is a whole selection of shades on offer and there is no reason why you can’t snag the whole lot of them.  A simple well-fitting, well textured and so easy to wear dress.

As I’ve said I ran out of time other wise I would have gone back to regrab the new GG, free to join of course.  You will find all the GG’s not in the shop but outside right next to where you rezz.  Just in case you’re not a Mesh Head then there are clothes for you as well in fact a good mix of mesh and non mesh so everyone can find something.

Yonks! (Freebies n Cheapies).

It’s been “yonks” since I last visited the D!va mainshop but when another blogger, Kiylee mentioned that they had a new Free hair out I was there in a heartbeat.  WOW check out “Bambi”.

keep

Adorable, cute and different.  Those little hair horns are so Kawaii and yet wearable for even the “un Kawaii” lol. This hair comes with 2 versions the “horns” up or to the side and you will see that in other pictures.  The icing on the cake, apart from it being a free to join group, is that you get a whole fat pack of the colours.  I’ve not had  a chance to even count them but from my first glance it looks like you have every shade from black to blonde.  You will have to join the group but again thats FREE.  You will find this GG in the centre of the shopping area, easy to find because of the crowds of people who like us have TPed into grab the goodies.

But linger at D!va because there is a SALE going on.  At 125Lds a pack it looks like it’s a pretty generous sale so you might find something to treat yourself to.

keep6

Just love this dress, the colour, style, fit etc and not forgetting the back.

keep2

A brill freebie from Wertina.  There is also a pair of earings anyone can pick up but to get this dress you will have to join the Free group.

As I wandered around the Wertina shop I came across the discounted section, on one of the mezzanine level.  Everything seems to be priced at 10Lds or at least the 3 items I picked up.

keep3

I am not a great slogan top fan but I can’t agree more with the sentiments on this top.  Again a great fit etc and only 10Lds.  More choices available for this top.

shirt

Check out the “side horns” on my D!va hair. This shirt is also a discounted item, a simple white shirt with a bit of detailing and the lovely scrunched up look at the waist which give your clothes that realistic touch and again 10Lds, more colours available but only the coloured stripes.

Actually when I went back to LM grab and ended up buying more stuff from the discount section, a spotty skirt and a very pretty summery dress.  I also had a wander around the Wertina shop and drooled a bit.  Not cheap but not overpriced for some new designs and great texturing, even a hardened Freebie hunter like me was tempted but then I quickly TPed out.

Desert me P2.

simlight

As soon as I logged back inworld my first place to return to is the David C Heather sim where I had just spent a most relaxing hour or so snapping some pictures off and just sitting there pondering.  I also decided it was time to join the VIP group because although for a lot of people 350Lds would be a lot to pay to join a group, that it until you see the amazingly detailed and cute bag which is this months Group Gift.  Unbelievably detailed from the tiny zipper teeth to the pose that comes with this bag.  In total you get 4 bags which comprises of 2 sizes for men/female/large or small AVs and pose or no pose options in those sizes.  The smaller one fits me perfectly and the pose, hand holding the strap going across your chest is subtle and doesn’t affect my AO but of course you can use the non pose bag if you wish.  This bag is for sale in the shop for 300Lds and you have a much wider range of colours than the Blood coloured Group Gift but I’m hoping that by paying the extra 50Lds I’m so going to reap the rewards in future Gifts from here.

I have a theory and it’s a simple one.  When a designer/shop owner/entrepreneur opens a shop in SL sometime the outside tells you more of the quality to expect when you go inside the shop itself.

David2 It’s as though a giant has been blown up and his limbs, although those legs are definitely feminine to me, and scattered across the sim.

David3

A great place to either pose like me or just to stand alone and chill out.

David

And finally the shop itself.  That stunning bright red colour is like a beacon.  All of the photos were taken using nothing but the sim windlisghts setting which adds to so much to the sims atmosphere.

The clothes you will find here you will not find anywhere else, unique and fresh designs especially for men.  Not cheap prices but neither are they unreasonable and because you’re paying for the chance to stand out from the rest worth every penny.  Plenty of demos for you to try out.

Spring for men.

interpidboat

It’s good to have been able to spend some time in SL especially since I’ve got my hands on some new clothes from the  FATEwear Spring collection.  Everything is so mix and match the whole collection can be worn as intended or mixed with any other of Damien Fates clothing.  I’m going to re post a picture to show how this works.

fatewe

I took this picture on the very day I had got my new spring clothes and just snapped the shorts with the FATEwear shirt I was originally wearing and even the formal goes with the casual.  So basically if you already own a lot of FATEwear clothes even a top up of some new shorts, shirt etc will change the whole look.

urbpantsThis is the shorts without the shirt to distract from them.  Called Gus and they have a more crispness to them whilst the other shorts, Hector, are a more casual softer linen look, the belt is an option with both shorts, but I think it just finishes off them perfectly. In fact although the shorts come with the belt included I do believe you can buy a whole pack of the belts – which dare I say would finish off any trousers/shorts in a real neat way.

I’ve given 2 LMs one for Damien’s main shop which is where you will find all the clothes shown and much more but right next to his mainshop is the FATEplay shop which is full of costumes for both men and women .  I actually treated myself to “the travelers” outfit but because I’ve managed to get into SL so little recently I’ve not even had the chance to wear it.

toilet

Just a fun picture as I’m such a rotten traveller.  This is Zan’s boat called the Loonetta.  She has blogged it before and I think it’s time she re-blogged it as it’s still one of the BEST boats in SL.  Maybe next post for that but look how big it is and even includes a toilet, bathroom and bedroom for only 31 prims.

Teaser.

fatewe

So little time so much to wear.  Faith was so busy setting up her new Scarlet Creative home she completely ignored me so I took this opportunity to take a quick snap  of one of the new Spring collection items from FATEwear.  It’s just the shorts that come from the new collection but the shirt, called Edward, is of course one of Damien’s classics.  The shorts are called Gus and are in the main entrance along with the rest of the new collection.  I couldn’t help but think that the Void colour would suit the shirt to make a casual office look but there are much more colour options from this dark grey to pink and all the shades in between.  The one thing I did notice when I spend time trying so much on is how well you can mix and match ALL of his range so when I’m next inworld I’ll definately be brightening up my look and showing you more of his excellent texturing and styling.

Popping back in because I forgot to mention that these shorts come with a belt as well which is a small and yet important detail because it just finishes off the look makes the shorts go from plain shorts to stylish shorts..back to RL now but remember Demos for everything so worth spending some time trying them all on.
