Sooo I haven’t really taken off the new coldLogic “valens” sweater for like a week – lazy? Nope I just adore it. Today I wear it with the under-shirt and no scarf – easy to ring the changes when its such a versatile wee thing. This colour choice is called marine – it’s a greeny bluey sort of hue and is dead pretty. I also donned the valens pants, same colour tone and all jolly & checked. My hair is a group gift from SF Design called “Danielle” it comes with a big colour change HUD, plus you can change the colour of the tie on the pony tail – don’t go pouting chaps – there is a “Dan” hair for you too ! Just join the group et voilà its yours. (100L join fee that’s well rewarded in monthly gifts) I popped over to SF Design today and whoa – its had a big makeover ! Really nicely laid out, easy to navigate and so fresh.
A lovely group gift from two splendid stores to report on – firstly KoKoLoReS has this hair as a gift throughout December for joining the group (free join too!) It’s deliciously sweet and the hairband has a HUD with squillions of colour choices – so matching it to your outfit will be a breeze. Its called Ivy and is just SO perfect for the season, go grab yours and make sure you update your landmark as the store has a newwww glossy location too – thanks Sisch ❤ My outfit is by coldLogic, part of the latest new release – and my favourite of the pack – its called “love”, darling sweater with a peter pan collar and turn back cuffs, and a flirty flared skirt !
From SF Design the group members had a delivery of Christmas stockings – one is empty and one is filled, they are mod & copy so at just 3 prims each you can pin them up for the whole family ! I so love how these are totally traditional – the filled stocking is all lumpy and bumpy and stuffed with treats. Thanks swaffette ❤
SF Design has a brilliant group gift out at the moment (small fee to join and SO worth it) It’s this fabbo pair of washed out denim shorts, plusss in the box are a USA flavour pair ! Great fit and two alpha sizes to help with fitting if you want more coverage or less. Love love love the attached belt. (I was fooling around with windlight settings, the shorts are more blue and the top more beige.) The top is from “not a toy” really sweet with two little birdies on the front – free on the market place yay!. If you’re into posing, the jeep I’m laid allll over is by Avicci and a bargain at 25L. It says couple poses but as you can see a few of them are perfect for single pringles too.
This is the outfit that swaffette Firefly had put out for the Mens Wear Fashion Week which I completely missed but now since it’s available at her large main shop (check out the NEW Board) it’s a good excuse to blog it. As it happens I’ve combined 2 of her outfits to make 1. The bowling shirt is a separate item from the jeans I just thought the rolled up retro jeans inc in the NY suit set also suited this top perfectly.
Decided to try to find a better background for the suit I also had and checked out many restaurants locations and as soon as I saw The Mill I knew it was perfect.
This suit comes in 2 shades blue and black and is called NY city jeans set. I used the charcoal coloured jeans with the bowling shirt in the first picture and in this second one I’m wearing the full Indigo blue suit. I actually prefer the jacket without the shirt and since you get all the layers that means you can chose to wear the jacket alone or with the shirt and not forgetting that those rolled up jeans are a great look on their own so basically a couple of looks in the one package. Demos are available and I would definitely try them both suits out out because you maybe surprised by the blue one, again at first I wasn’t too sure but the colour has grown on me and I actually really like the colour it makes you stand out just a bit more but not too OTT.
Inside of The Mill is a selection of seating from a table for 2 to this longer banquet style one, upstairs a couple of more private dining tables and a comfy living room seating area.
There is a Group to join if you want to be kept updated. A really lovely relaxing place to hang out and just relax.
I must say not long ago there was quite a heated debate going on in one of the Groups I am a member of about mesh and non mesh clothes and it still surprises many people that there is still those who do not want to wear mesh for whatever reasons. swaffette Firefly main stock is still non mesh and although she is making headway into the world of mesh if you want non mesh clothes then this is the shop that has it all, from underpants to wedding suits, shorts to jumpers, coats to hats this is the place. There is also a monthly Group Gift set out and this month it’s a pair of shoes.
Time to get outside and enjoy your garden. Even if you’ve got a limited amount of space and prims, you will love this set from Cleo Design. It’s a whole garden in a box ! This is the prize for the Strawberry Kube Hunt, each gift is just 5L. Boy-oh-boy is this worth hunting out, you get the table and six chairs, food items and also the beautifully paved gazebo with optional flower bushes to plant around the border. The chairs are only 2 prims each and have so many poses for both boys & girls. You also get the food items, plus wearable props are given for certain poses. The hunt blog has prize previews and urls, which I’ve given below.
Also new out are these scrummy Capri pant & shirt sets from SF Design. These come in a variety of colours, but I just loved this bronzey brown ! The pants have a muted swirly pattern all over and the shirt is plain cotton, great together, great as separates ! Thanks Swaffette ❤
basket with 3 poses – POSEbility
If you’re looking for a sweet retro styled frock to celebrate the forthcoming Springtime, look right here! This months group gift from SF Design is a peach. Floral fabric, and puffy sleeves (in two sizes) for this mesh figure hugging dress. The back is a criss cross affair, which adds a little glamour. For a totally different look a flexi full skirt is also included, makes it all razzle dazzle ! There is a small group join fee , but you are richly rewarded with monthly gifts, definately worth the expenditure !
I don’t normally SL on a Sunday but since I’m up, washed, dressed and fed I decided to pop in and snap a few pictures for fun and maybe be able to get this new outfit from SF Designs blogged.
Just having a play with my settings and Zan’s poses. Although you can’t see it, went OTT with the lighting, I am reading a book by torch.AW She did it again, completely packed up her old house and all her garden stuff and rezzed a whole load of new stuff apart from the wind turbine in the background. That has been a feature of her homes for many years now and at one stage she even had a whole field of them but it’s the clothes that I’m wearing that I’m blogging. Comes from SF Designs and much to my surprise you get more than you bargain for. The trousers are very “Dads pants” which are perfect for a nerdy, Hipster look. What surprised me is that not only do you get the boots in the pack but again a colour changing hud for both items. I’m starting to wonder if this is going to be a feature with a lot of swaffette Firefly’s designs as I have a couple of other items from her and they too come with colour changing huds which means your clothes are much more versatile. A total of 8 in for the pants and boots so you can match them up or contrast them.
The cardigan is a separate purchase but with not only the same earthy shades in the hud as the pant/boot combo but also a colour slider so you can customise the colour to the exact shade you want. Goes without saying that demos are available at least for the pants/boots I couldn’t see it for the cardigan but since I’ve tried many of her demos on I knew that the fit and texturing would be excellent.
The undershirt is just one of mine as this doesn’t come in layer. SF designs is breaking into the mesh market but her main stock on the ground floor is still mainly non mesh because there is still a market for it but if you either cam up or take the TP (on top of the NEW notice board) to the upper level you can see her mesh items. Because of Limited budget I have left the denim shirt to another time but I love it’s fot and well worn texturing so you will see that at some stage soon.
Last thing, if like me you cannot be bothered to edit a hair to fit a hat then along with her Monthly Group Gifts upstairs in the hat/hair department is free hat hair in a whole range of colours. Worth a visit just to grab that alone.
