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

2018 Wedding? I’ve got you covered!

If you’re planning a wedding this year take note of the new set by Chez Moi. The “Be Mine” Wedding collection is fully interactive for your guests and for the happy couple!

♥ Texture change HUD: attach the HUD, and you can choose the colour of the wood/cushion of the chair/bench.

The Background has 20 lovely poses for couple pictures (10×2). I tried them out even though I was a single pringle – totally romantic and lovely. I especially enjoyed the animations on the guests table – guests seem to get overlooked sometimes – but this allows them to mingle,dance,drink etc – and the poses look so natural.

This set is available at The Trunk Show currently until January 18th.

Blushing Bride (freebie inc)

 

FREE mesh wedding gown - $25L lillys - kokolores hair NEW!

Ahhh spring – the beginning of the wedding season, and I’ve found a glorious gown for your special day (or any day as its Second Life we inhabit right?!) This is a free item from Atis, its parked right on the table in the store. Really great fit over my mesh body, all standard sizes included. Beautiful embroidery print all over the front of the gown, deep cut rear and an interesting cut out style on the shoulders. You can get your paws on my new hair from KoKoLoReS at the new round of The Seasons Story that opens on the 10th April. Its called “Zuzka” and is a charming up do, with optional cherry blossoms to wear.

Kokolores hair NEW! Lilly bouquet $25L

Heres a little more detail for the hair and also the rather gorgeous Lillies I’m holding. I found this, along with many other hand held posies at Sweet Garden and I think I almost bought the lot ! Just $25L per bunch with a lovely hold animation, great if you’re into taking pretty photos etc. You’ll need to climb the stairs to find them in the main store.

Ramp it up

Boadicea Mesh dress (top and bottom parts) Marianna Porterfield of RaMp sent me a little box of goodies to see ! I wanted to share with you one of them called “Boadicea”. It’s such a feminine design and it immediately made me think of summer weddings. The dress is actually in two parts, you can wear them together as above, or on their own like below. The top layer is lacey and sheer and fits beautifully over the satin dress beneath. Delicate capped sleeves leave your arms bared, and the handkerchief hemline flutters around your ankles. Boadicea Mesh dress (top part) I really felt like I wanted to dance across the meadow, might have been an idea to put some lingerie on first though – luckily no one was around. The lace fabric looks antique, and it does also come in a cream version and a black version. Low price at just $99L a set. If you like my stand in groom, he’s from Image Essentials, there’s a range of these cute guys with a pose built right in (I think I bought them all!) I’m always wishing for a guy to pose with, so this is dead handy-dandy for me. RaMp market place

Spring time Wedding

 

Immerse Weekend offer

Super Sales Weekend is ahead and this gorgeous slinky gown is up for grabs at just 90L. Its called Zuri and is an off the shoulder design, it also comes with an optional floral shoulder attachment and jewelled brooch. I’m also wearing a sweet little clutch bag from Glow Designs, which comes in a whole heap of other colour choices – love the heart shaped links on the handle ! Would be a perfect outfit for one of those Spring weddings no? This time of year always see’s a flurry of wedding invites for me in real life, sometimes SecondLife – c’mon someone get married and invite me !

Aphrodite Store - Wedding cakes NEW!

Of course any wedding needs a cake, and I’ve got these to show you from Aphrodite Store. They are beautifully crafted, and I actually felt like swirling a fingertip through the icing to get a sneaky taste ! Three themes (that should keep even the most hardened bridezilla happy.) There is “Choco Roses”, my personal fav, “loving swans” which is so delicately iced and has a pair of swans nuzzling on the top and also “beach lovers”. Each cake dispenses wearable foodie items for your guests, lovely animations in them too. Wayyyyy back in 2007 our wedding cake was a prim nightmare – if memory serves me right it was around the 170 prim mark. These are seriously low prim and you can entertain your guests perfectly in such style.

Inspired (freebie and cheapie).

sim1I have been such a lazy mare in SL and just wandered all around my new Sim find.  I’ve taken so many pictures I’m not sure what to do with them so indulge me as I post more piccies.

ApplesHowever I do have a good excuse as since our sim is Winter white and I’m starting to yearn for a bit of colour in my life (RL and SL) I knew that this sim would be a perfect place to take a couple (or more) snaps of my new freebies and a brilliant hunt find.  The mesh top and skirt are freebies from J.Allen Store (it’s in the window with a couple of other freebies) and you get a choice of 3 colours for the top but I loved the juicy orange.

sim2Again the Lennon Sim is an amazingly beautiful laid out and planned rental sim but since the owners have been so kind as to leave it as an open sim even for us casual visitors there are some really beautiful places to hang out in and just enjoy the view.  As always I can only say please resist entering people’s homes, unless of course you get so awed you want to rent a home here yourself.

FlowersMust confess I thought I was buying a cute flying pig which in a way I was but it turns out the pig contained this delightful,delicate and pretty hair flowers. Turns out the pig is from an old hunt called When pigs fly hunt which is well over now but obviously Norena Soir has been so kind she’s left it out for us.  Since it’s an old hunt I don’t think I’m breaking any rules when I tell you it’s attached to the special offer boards.  As it happens I was so pleased with this I paid the 75Lds and joined her group and then grabbed the freebies which I haven’t had time to check out yet but the ornate mask and bunch of flowers on their own look as though they’re worth the joining free alone.

Last piccie of Lennon but I took so many it was hard to choose which I liked most.

Ah Bliss.

I’ve been waiting for this sale for ages.  I love hats RL, SL any life and especially when they’re on special offer.  Bliss Couture has been up and running now for an impressive 5 years and as a Thank You last week they started an upto 60%  discount sale on their clothes.  they have everything from bridal gowns to cocktail dresses which also  seem to be all non mesh.  It’s what I call High Fashion which means big skirts lots of froth and real statement clothes.  I’ve not got any of her outfits but from the pictures they look so dramatic and beautifully texture, very romantic and womanly.  What I was waiting for was the hat and hair sale.

BlissBudget busting at 99Lds each and I know from my pre sale visits that they are vastly reduced.  Each hat comes with a variety of colours which sadly only come in the fat packs. It was hard to chose which colours as they’re all so pretty.

Bliss1From big and frothy to close caps of dense flowers.  Because you cannot get demos you will just have to take my word they’re just gorgeous, or simply buy  one hat and try it on and once  you’re convinced of the quality you can shop with confidence.

Bliss 2In case your wondering that is an Etchaflesh cleavage busting corset.  Not sure why hats and corsets go together so well but they do.

Bliss 3 All photos were taken with the Nams Prim and Skin setting (touche eclait for SL) and no photo shopping of any sort because I want to show off the beauty of them.

Bliss threeA nice and appreciated touch is putting your hat on doesn’t mean you lose your hair which I find a minor annoyance.

Bliss 4Last photo I promise but honestly I still have about 5 more which I love and adore but haven’t shown you and I’ve not even started on the hair.  The hair is very much like the clothes, big and bold.  I treated myself to one shaped into a teddy bear face …honestly it’s CUTE.

The LM should take you to the large hair and hat department but you will also find downstairs a small selection of seasonal hats and I just had to have the one with all the cute stuffed bunnies.
