Hint of retro

I’ve been busy remodelling my pool area the last few days, I wanted a hint of retro and I’m really pleased with how its going. I thought this new dress from Luxe Paris set just the right tone to wander around that space! This is the “Feuilles” frock, superb all over print and snug capped sleeves lend a vintage feel. Smartly tight in all the right places and the colour palette is deeeelicious! This comes in standard and mesh body sizes – I’m wearing it over my Slink Physique body and no alphas used. My necklace is part of a set from Darkmouse “fossilised” for just $25L you get the earrings, necklace and bracelet – fantastic deal!

No matter how many times I hit it with my pan, ok paid 60Lds, I didn’t win the prize I wanted which of course is the house behind me.

xxxhouseuse2

Although I’m happy(ish) with the wins I won it means I spent my last lindens on just “stuff” and whats even worse is that in this shop there is a couple of items for my home I really want but will now have to wait till I allow myself some spending LD’s, yes I have another “weekender” booked as I have been working so hard recently I really need it and I also need to start saving for it.

This is one of those shops where a whole area is taken up with the builds, furniture and decor set out for you to buy.  What I’m planning on returning for is a retro/vintage style fireplace, light fixture and sink,  pretty unique and fabulous for styling your home….can you tell I’m not sure which time period these pieces are from but I would say either Art Deco or near to it.  I’m just inworld checking and I think most things are from the 1920 ties or there abouts.  I’ve also spotted there is an MP shop so you can see the style I’m talking about.

There are FREEBIES and of course, I’m just showing you the 1 of them and actually I didn’t even bother taking it home unpacking it etc but of course, I’ve snagged it.  Super realistic and only 1 prim!

xxxhouseuse3

Some of the items you have to pay a linden for but it is paid right back at yer, some of the items in the small display shop are set for 0Lds.  Some lovely old pictures, books, a table emmm wracking my brains now and apart from this weird ass picture of a rooster drinking coffee I can’t remember what else there is but a nice little selection of home decor items./

There is a notice there asking for “bloggers” and I would be so tempted to apply, I’m not going to, as this stuff is so interesting and so reasonably priced I would feel good about showing it to people but I prefer not to be a blogger for the couple of shops I do because I like the people I work with.

PS I did have a lovely time wandering around and you will notice outside of the cafe is a sign and also a free cup of coffee for you to pick up so PICK it up! as it’s a prim and again exc quality and a great prop for your home.

This and that

Scarlet Creative & Aphrodite NEW!

Its Saturrrrday! Or should I sat Caturday – as my kitty cat decided I had enough sleep and to wake me up at 4am . Anywhoooo I have some glorious stuff to share and who can sleep when Scarlet Creative is in the newest Luxe Box?! This is ” Alaouite Skybox”  – funny thing is, for absolutely years I’ve searched for a build like this – and wow , voila! It’s a bit Grecian, a tad roman but a whole lotta beautiful going on. It’s in this months Luxe Box – which in my opinion makes the $1500 price tag for the box well worth it all on its own.

Scarlet Creative Luxe Box NEW!

You could use this as a retreat in the sky, a role play area, a space / back drop for photos, endless possibilities really. Rooms are spaced around an open to the sky courtyard and pool. The pool has poses built right in for singles and couples (really lovely ones to boot).

Scarlet Creative NEW For Luxe Box

If you walk around the rooms, you will find so many beautiful details and textures have been used – honestly its crazy delicious. My mouth was watering when I spotted the different types of plaster and tiles…y.e.s textures turn me on – weird hah!

Scarlet Creative - details

There are tiled floors, mosaic walls and different styles to make each little space unique. Its crazy beautiful and yet very peaceful and relaxing at the same time – doesn’t make sense I know – but it is. Left hand pattern is from the dining chairs btw – isn’t it gorgy?

Scarlet Creative & Aphrodite NEW

Aphrodite have produced a vintage style dining extravaganza for the summer, its in the new round of Tres Chic – perfectly suited for a wedding or party. Cut crystal glasses, silver serving dishes and a plethora of meals, starters etc for you to dine upon. Its pretty flexible also, as you can set up for as many or as few as you wish, remove decor items to save prims.  I just thought it looked so attractive on the open courtyard of the skybox – but I can also see this set being used as a centre piece for a wedding – whacha think?

Very cheap and dead posh

shawtey lowkey $10L dress

I was mooching on the market place the other night and came across a new-to-me store called “Lowkey Shawty”. I was super chuffed to see some top-notch clothing for notta-lotta-dosh! As it was so inexpensive I whacked a load of gear into my shopping basket and paid. Voila! What a massive find this turned out to be, not cheap and cheerful but really gorgeous! This darling little belted dress was just $10L and came in the standard sizes, the medium fitted beautifully over my Slink Physique body.

Neve denim shorts - £10L tee

I also nabbed this cute surf print tee-shirt for $10L and shoved it on over my Neve denim shorts – which for the record haven’t been off my lazy butt for like weeks. (They fit SO perfectly, no alphas required, full range listed below)

shawtey lowkey $10L top & skirt

Another fav I found at Lowkey Shawty is this boho skirt and knotted top – skirt $10L, top $1L. There are a squillion other pieces to lust over and for those of us on a tight budget its a brill place to fill our wardrobes.
