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.

Boo Hoo!!! (15Ld Ricielli Hunt, Info Only).

This picture has nothing to do with the hunt it’s just a pretty picture as I can’t really show you what I really wanted to show you.

When I logged in it was a case of Woo Hoo as there is now a NEW Hunt going on at Ricielli and a whole board of temping quality items for only 15Lds each and this is where the “Boo Hoo” comes in.

There is a colour code to show you which fit the item comes in and so I almost made a mistake and bought something that didn’t actually come in my fit as the Legacy and SLink HG fit code colours are very similar so make sure you pick the right one. Fortunately, it’s easy to see what’s in the pumpkin before you buy it which is why I spotted I’d made a mistake

Then I did buy a top and even though it’s a SLink HG fit it doesn’t fit my SLink HG body.  The mesh texture and chains bury themselves into my AV and I cannot/do not want to show you a picture of this because I DO NOT want to put you off this hunt. This, as always with the Ricielli Hunt is a fab way of picking up some shop quality goodies for your invent and in all the years I’ve treated myself to something from these hunts this is the FIRST time ever something just hasn’t worked.

If you really want to make sure something is going to fit then most if not all of the hunt item are just a single colour but for other colours, they’re for sale at full price in the shop and this means you can try the demo out before you buy.

PS. If you’re wondering the Scarecrow is one of the freebies from HPMD that I didn’t show you.

Goodbye my Fishie Friend. (Sale 25Lds).

It’s sad to see a shop that has been in SL for such a long time shut its doors for the last time but Fae Eriksen, the Boss Lady of Fishie Strawberry, for whatever reason has decided to do just that.  As a lovely goodbye gift, everything in her shop is priced at only 25Lds and did I go crazy?

Just a bit but so did Faith and I suspect Shi, who yet again dropped me this fab link.

I’m not showing much of what I bought because I’d recommend you still the demos before you buy as the sizes are a mixed bag.  I think the older items are in the basic mesh fit and the newer items are of course in mesh body and standard mesh fits etc so again try before you buy but old or new the quality is too good to resist.

PS. This is a bigger shop than you think, so once you’ve checked out the entrance room go past the customer desk and there is more in the back.  Plus I have blogged freebies from this shop before and there is no reason to assume they’re still not there.  You will find them on the wall were the front door it.

Fishie Strawberry (Don’t panic as the LM is a big “For Sale” sign.  The shop is still there, for the moment.)

There is a price to pay to look this good. UPDATE (50Lds Group Gifts& Freebie).

I was mooching around a shop and because the outside of this shop is so beautifully landscaped I took a stroll and it turns out that it’s also the new(?)home of Caboodle.  Caboodle isn’t a free group but it has some excellent gifts out for us and I know for sure that some of them are still in my invent and will remain there but to me this is a new sporty outfit.

You get a 3 shade hud for the top and pants, white, gray and black, I think the black ones have a shiny satin look so they can be worn for evening wear as well.  You know me and sporty stuff, I love it and have an RL addiction as well, especially if it’s lycra and sucks the spare tires in and firms up the flab.

Sadly though this gift only comes in Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya and I’m wearing the Freya pants and hourglass top as these were the 2 fits I found the easiest to wear.  I didn’t have much bother getting a good fit on the leggings but damn only the Gazunga size would fit. So when you pop over check the fits of the gifts, unintentional rhyming, and of course you will also be able to work out what should be an easy to wear fit even if it’s not your actual mesh body sizing.

PS.  3 Lucky Boards with a quick turn over and prizes well worth loitering for

By Golly,she was right, IMPROLIBRA1 spotted that if you click on the blue makeup/beauty case on the desk it’s free for all.

You get sent 5 colours and each colour, apart from the red, comes with a textured option.  I’ve put the gray one in front because even men need to decor their SL homes and at 2 prims you can have matching his ‘n’ her grooming boxes next to each other on a vanity.

Thank you for letting me know.

Worth every Ld.(Super Bargains).

I went over to Loordes of London just for these boots but damn it was hard which colour to chose from so, in the end, I went for this green one as I think it will make a great addition to an Autumnal wardrobe….yes in SL and RL I am actually looking at things with next season in mind.

OK I will blame it on the Hayfever and my constant sneezing when taking this picture but I’ve just spotted a “boo boo” in that the soles/base of these boots are much thicker than shown in this picture.  I forgot to “Hover” myself up a bit to compensate.  I’m not a big fan of the built up base but these are Loordes of London boots and they just make GREAT STUFF! They’re the Marks and Spensers of SL and that’s a good thing.

Since these cost money, 49Lds to be exact, I’ve shown them in my Nams setting and I’m pretty sure you will try the demo for yourself. You also get SLink, Hourglass, Belleza, Venus, Freya, Lara and Isis and even if you don’t wear mesh body you will still probably find a fit for your system shape and an Alpha in your invent.

The LM takes you to the walls with all the special offers ie “Steals and Deals” “Fifty Linden Thursday” etc and there are some new offers, these boots are on the end under the “See you Wednesday” banner and you can choose between 3 colours or for a few Lindens more, 55Ld, on the stall next to this one is some more colour choices.

Old Basics.(Freebies).

I was clearing out some old stuff but I’m pretty sure I’ve not shown it to you before and so I popped over to the shop and checked and yup they and plenty of other Free to Join GG’s are still out.  Add to that some Lucky Boards plus there seems to be a SALE going on which also looks like it’s in it’s last few hours.

The bandeaux style top comes in Applier form only so sorry no tattoo layers.  You do get quite a nice selection of colours though and it does make for a super handy Summer basic and the same can be said for the skirt.  Again a selection of patterns and mesh bod fits as well as standard mesh fits.  There was another full skirt set which was a bit longer and more pastel in shades but it was this skirt which went best with the top.

ARGH sorry I popped inworld LM grabbed, checked that there is a sale on and there is and everything is priced at 50Lds but time is running out and so I did everything except check which Appliers this top comes in but I’m pretty sure it’s the standard 3 biggie ones inc Omega.

It HURTS so badly!(Freebies n Cheapies).

I’m drowning in FREEBIES, but the dress I am going to show you is the “cheapie” and you can have a lovely time grabbing and unpacking all the freebies.

I popped over to Asteria Creations, not even sure why but I did and as the LM started to rezz I spotted all these “tombstones”, I was a bit laggy yesterday, but as soon as everything rezzed perfectly I spotted that they’re not tombstones but clothes stands.  The ones I first checked first were the ones to the left  and it turns out those are discounted outfits but I’m glad I continued looking at them all because the ones on the right turned out to be all FREEBIES.

xxxarlause

I ended up going click crazy because the freebies also come in so many different colours/textures etc I just lost control.  I am going to have to be really strict and bin as much as I can but it’s going to be hard and I still haven’t been able to unpack it all.  One thing for sure is you’re going to spend a very pleasant time trying this lot on and deciding what to keep yourself.

I only bought the 1 item from the discounted side and it was so worth the measly 25Lds and it’s a KEEPER.

xxxarlause2

It’s a 2 piece called Arian, with a long under dress and short outer dress.  Obviously, can be worn together or as separates.

xxxarlause5This is the under dress worn on its own and as you can see its a simple slip dress.  A lovely off-white/cream colour with a satin sheen, the ruffled hem makes this stand out and so wearable just on its own.

xxxarlause3

The outer dress as you can see in this picture can only be worn by those who are wearing bikini’s under neither or those who like to flash their boobies, we call them sluts in the UK, having said that if my RL boobies were are nice as my SL ones I would probably flash them any chance I’d get LOL.  What’s not so clear in this picture is that this outer dress is also slightly sheer so there is a hint of bikini or flesh coming through.  If by any chance you’re not too keen on this colour/texture there are other options as well.

PS The paid for dress, like all the other items of clothing, only comes with standard mesh sizes but this sheer one fits perfectly over my SLink mesh bod.
