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.

Damn I’m useless! (Freebie Hunt).

I’m so glad this hunt isn’t in the PurpleMood Creations shop as I have quite a few outfits from here where I actually PAID money for them LOL and since I don’t want to be tempted into spending too much it was a relief that I wasn’t going to have to cam and scan around the shop for the hidden glasses of water with cherries on top which is why this little hunt is called “Cherries on Top Hunt”.

The 10 glasses are hidden in and around a very pretty and Valentines themed mini “yardsale” but when I say yardsale I don’t mean unwanted Arcade wins all new stuff from a variety of shops but new stuff from a variety of SL designers.

XXXpurpleuseI love any top that can show a bit of skin but in a tasteful way and this top does but for those who blush easily there is also a non sheer version or a rather handy system layer beige Bandeau top which is lovely and handy to have on its own.

XXXpurpleuse2

Again a simple and sweet mesh top.

XXXpurpleuse3

My last find was this stylised jacket.

When you go there you will spot that I used the large Ballroom as my backdrop because I really want to find the rest of the hunt prizes as I know that there are some skirts,  and like shoes you can never have enough skirts, and a few dresses so yet again when I get back inworld I’m starting off in my “last location”.  Plus I also have to confess that I spotted a pair of shoes from the PurpleMoon stall which are so unusual and at only 50Lds I can splash some cash on them and maybe my next post won’t be a freebie but I have NEW Mina hair and I’ll probably have those shoes which will be a nightmare because you all know I struggle to get everything into the same picture LOL.

OK will hopefully show you them later.

PS No hints give but check out just outside the back of the Ballroom cos you might just miss that one.

Too much fun and a whole load of bargain bin stuff.

I logged back into the SLMarketplace for a bit of rummaging and I was shocked to come across The Sea Hole!  A lot of SL old timers will recognise this name as it was a BIG shop in SL but the owner decided to shut down many, MANY years ago but before she did she slashed the prices and people went bat shit crazy.  You could not move for people clicking away like mad.  This stuff was so nice I STILL have a couple of pieces in my invent.

There is a total of 246 items priced between 1-10Lds and 280 between 11Ld and 100Ld so many things so I basically loaded 10 items into my basket paid for them and logged out.

This home cost me only a single Linden and it’s packed with unique character.

XXXcinniered

A completely retro tailor.  Although I’m showing paid for items I’m going to picture edit because just like the items I picked up it’s fun to do LOL but you can see the actual colours for everything on the Marketplace pictures.

XXXcinniered2

It’s a big and oversized build but that’s in keeping with its character.

XXXCinniered4

It has an open plan, bedroom, livingroom and kitchen.  As far as I can tell the only pose in it is a simple lounging one on the bed.  This is primmy, sorry I can’t remember the exact count but it was just under the 140 mark.  But as I said this is a unique build, I know that a lot of people like to make their SL homes like perfect reality but then there are those who like to be a bit out there and this is it.  If I found this house in SL I would click on it to find out who made it because it’s refreshing to come across something with a bit more “oomph” to it.

The outfit is another one of Drinkinstein Sorbet’s creation.  If I remember correctly The Sea Hole closed it’s doors not long after mesh appeared on the scene but it’s non mesh and sculpted clothes still stand the test of time and again if you’re not a Mesh Head then this is a great place to get some new clothes and again since everything is so cheap, this dress cost 15Lds, you can really splurge.  Plenty of colour choices as well.

Check out my second home.

XXXCrossgreen

Again another big and primmy home and again I’ve forgotten the prim count but I think …OH I’ve checked and it’s 223 but for all of those prims you get a big house fully furnished and with the same “oomph” as the first home but this one called “Fall Comfort House” is warm and woody, I’ve not put many of the pictures in this post but like the first house some really nice touches such as the hanging bed.  Primmy for sure but definitely designed for those who like to stand out.

XXXX

I ran out of space in my basket for a top so I just used one of mine but the skirts is a Sea Hole one which means even though that texturing is as smooth as a babies bum this is a prim skirt.

XXXCrossgreen3

So many things in this Marketplace shop from clothes to full builds and little itty bits and although there are some items at 50Lds most seem to be priced between 1-30Lds.
