Memories (75% off Sale)

Zan has been nagging me about blogging the closing down sale of Rebel Hope. I have a RULE – no closing sales to be blogged. I decided not to and I’m sticking too it – they always make me feel a bit nostalgic. Sooooo I’ve broken that rule primarily because Rebel Hope is the store I bought all my  bridal attire from. Players Tux, my gown and the bridesmaids – oh plus flowers of course! When I heard the store was closing it made me sad, I’ve always carefully stored my wedding gown away (Thirteen years anniversary this year!) , I felt like an absolute Queen wearing it that day ❤ Soooo I decided to see if there was an updated version of my original gown – and nope, actually all the wedding gowns are now market place only – and look to be $100L a pop. They are not mesh body sized just small to large mesh BUT – oh they are divine ! I bought this one which came with a veil and hip sash of beautiful pearly flowers. The textures are simply beautiful. I found the medium fit perfect for my Maitreya body.

P.S The sale doesn’t extend to the market place btw

Ouch (Freebie).

Just like the sun in RL my luck has disappeared both in RL and SL.  I had a day of cuts, trips, spills. sprains and on and on and even when I retreated to the safety of my bed and an early night I wrenched my knee putting moisturiser on!

However a good start to this day finding this gorgeous free mesh dress from Elemiah Design and a new Mina hair from the TDF (will post later) was a good start to today.  A simple strapless, handkerchief hemmed mesh dress in a very rich raspberry/burgundy colour and as you can see it can be dressed up or down.

A mix of things in this shop from pretty spring coloured skirts to long gowns, some shapes and make up, undies, accessories and I did treat myself to some messy mascara however a special mention to the wedding dresses in the back because they are gorgeous and unique.  One of them is so divine I would almost say ‘I do just’ as an excuse to wear this gown.  As it happens the same dress but in green is one of the Group gifts sadly for me, remember I’m sticking to my budget, to join this group is 200Lds because white (400 for this one) or green I love this dress.

Big Fat Fail.

First a Woo Hoo as I’ve just come back from a short and excellent holiday all refreshed and rarin’ to go, Boo Hoo because I’m failing miserably in finding a lot of The Homeless Hunt Items. The icing on the cake is look at this.   A private Brides changing room which for Tempestuous (the shops name) isn’t really a surprise as this is a shop that has some Bridal Bling that would even tempt me to say yes.

BrideYes I did go apesh*t with Windlight because I can and because this build can take it.

LomoIgnore the clutter as all of it apart from the picture isn’t included in the package.   If I was ever interested in getting SL married I’d set this up as it is  weeks before the big day and use it as my “campaign  room” and plan everything from there and set out a lot of what will be used such as flowers, wine, dress etc. As it happens since I don’t have a prop dress I simply rezzed one of my favs but in a size I don’t use and it looks just as stunning as a room decor as it does worn

r4frYou can add a rug or two but the flooring already comes with a very posh champagne style label.  The doorway doesn’t have a door to it and because I rezzed this on my platform in the sky instead of the ground opening onto a lovely view so I blocked it a curtain so that’s what that white panel is.

One for the boys as well. You could have his n hers facing each other while you prepare yourself for the big day.  The boys is the same overall design but with a slightly darker colouring but no less bright.

LightAlthough it has that burnished steel look it’s soft and bright and unharsh.  The roof has 2 panels missing so you can use a setting that shows off the stars or sky.  The candelabra speaks for itself and inside the shop you can buy either the same or very similar and what looks like matching lamps to add even more bling.

ShapeSlight gratuitous body shot but I’ve just received this new shape from Anna’s called Leticia.   As I always say I never blog shapes as 99% of the free or discounted shapes are NAFF but Anna’s shapes to me are just PERFECT.  The only shapes I never feel the need to fiddle with.  The proportions are perfect but of course this is very much a personal preference and so they do come as mod so if your preference is different to mine then you can do all the tweaking you want as even the discounted version comes as a mod.  This is Analy Amat’s  latest Designer Circle offering and everything there is priced between 50-100Ld which is a brilliant bargain price. Because this is at a bargain price you only get the one shape but make sure to check out her shop as well because she has so many demos for you to try on but also a few dollarbies which is pretty damned generous of her.

Because this is a discounted item you get just the 1 shape but I believe that in the full packs you get a small selection such as a model shape, more leggy, a smaller shape and the standard shape I could be wrong because I just wait for the discounted ones as they’re a brilliant bargain.

Again I LOVE her shapes they’re feminine, realistic, flattering and on and if you want to see a close up of the face then the next picture is of it with my usual Essence Wednesday skin (that’s a skin merchant I whole heartedly adore).

Although I must also mention the Homeless Hunt Shape I’ve previously posted about and I will put the link for that at the end because although I tweaked the lips a bit the overall shape is one of the nicest curviest shapes I’ve found so if you want more Oomph in your booty then this is for you.

TiaraClose up of the face,Analy Amat does such simple sweet pretty shaped faces.  Wearing my usual Essence Wednesday skin. The tiara comes from Tempestuous, called  Clara pearls and diamonds.  When I first put this one I thought it was more a fantasy of spikes and bubbles which means it is more wearable than for just a wedding setting.  I know I have some outfits that would look divine and ethereal with this on top.

Dress2

This is the actual dress from my previous blog of Tempestuous and I still have it after all this time.  When I popped back to the shop to do my usual write up and check out any new goodies I couldn’t resit having a bit of fun with the model in the shop so now you have 4 images of this dress (me, her and the picture in the background). Personally I think I wear it better LOL.  Called Clara as well, unless I’m mistaken about the name, this is a shocking deep red but you can get the exact same dress but in virginal white with a veil to get married in.  Would be quite a funny thing if you wore the white dress to the wedding and then changed into the shocking one for the dance late OR wear the red one on your first year anniversary.  OOOO All I need is someone (daft enough) to marry me.
