It’s Fashion: How to Shop The Shops

I have important information. I can tell you how to shop THE SHOPS. I too have stood in the bright white landing point shouting OMG WHAT IS HAPPENING and ended up leaving frustrated. It’s happened. But, I’ve sorted it out and now I feel daft as it’s easy. Let me take you on a trip while I buy some lipstick. First of all, TP to THE SHOPS.

The FIRST thing that happens when you land is that you are handed a folder. YOU NEED THIS FOLDER. This is not a group joiner nor an invite to attend a BEST IN RED CONTEST WITH DJ HOT PANTS. This is an important folder and it contains a shopping hud and a styling hud. Put the shopping HUD ON.

If you are going to buy ANYTHING you’ll want to go ahead and buy credits. Not that big of a deal, you can sort out what you want and get the dollar amount closest to that. Pay the circle of the amount you want to pay. And now you have credit at the store.

Click on the picture on the wall that says THE MESH PROJECT to go pick up a body if you like. When you  click on the body these are your choices.

I grabbed DELUXE. But you see there is a free version, GREAT for giving it a try.

You can also pick up a head if you like. I didn’t get one and I regret it a little I’d like to check one out. NEXT TIME! Mesh heads fascinate me.

This is where I grabbed the shoes and dress. You can also pop over to THE BOUTIQUE for more clothes. YAY clothes.

But I wanted lipstick! So – I found the arrow on the floor to go BACK to the first room with all the TP options.

And now I can choose to go to THE SKIN SHOP.

And since it was lipstick I was after, it was lipstick I found.

I chose CUTE and then chose my color palette from there. It was SO easy!

And that’s how you shop the shops! Easy!

It’s Fashion: The Mesh Project

I confess, I like mesh parts. I am trying out THE SHOPS for the first time, and giving their new DELUXE mesh body a whirl.  I picked up a very pale skin while I was there and a freebie dress and shoes, to see if I liked their version of the mesh Gidge. Continue reading

Casual Friday: So Casual I’m Tardy

Gabby and I went FLF shopping and I had to stop off at Vespertine because I wanted the wall art for my house. I happened to stumble into her gacha room with all of her old ARCADE round items – and OMG I WANTED THIS CAR. I gave it a few pulls, got some cute pieces from this set (I already had several) but alas. NO CAR. Continue reading

Down the Rabbit Hole

IOFPOST1

I got so excited when I was asked to submit a weekly lingerie post. I adore lingerie and it gave me the perfect excuse to buy more, and to explore some new stores selling it.

You see, lingerie is not like other clothes. It’s special. Choosing lingerie is about how it makes me feel, rather than how it looks. It’s not like it gets seen by many people!

This piece is from a new store to me, HAS BEEN. Terrie Dreadlow’s designs have a hint of the fifties to them and the demo for the sweetness lingerie instantly transported me to a feeling of coy retro cuteness. The bodysuit is all mesh, and fit me perfectly straight out of the box. Don’t you just love when that happens.

It came with a HUD that offers a huge variety of colour options. You can customise the front panel, sides, bows and the ribbons that run down the length. Every colour and every texture are gorgeously detailed. Plus, it’s only 99L. There’s no excuse not to explore your inner bunny!

The shoes were also from HAS BEEN and included the same HUD with tons of options. These were in the lights pack. There is also a darks pack.

Lingerie doesn’t have to be all lace, frills and barely there. It just has to make me feel special. This set does that and so much more.

I’ve Got Great Gams

One of the things that I’m liking most about the MY SLINK OBSESSION event is that there is something for everyone. Don’t own the Physique? No problem, there is stuff for your hands. Need stuff for feet? (Shoes, Pedicures?) Got it. From appliers for your face to your feet and all the places in between, there is something for you.  Continue reading

Early AM At Flo’s Trailer Park Jamboree

Everyone else is still snoring in their campers but I’m up early because there is so much going on! Hair Fair still goes until tomorrow and I’ve forgotten to go pick up the dollarbie Kavar from EXILE put out. It’s sort of a silly rainbow hair and I have to have it.

There is still time to pick up this gorgeous ‘do from Wasabi Pills also, in fact Hair Fair several years ago was where I first became acquainted with Wasabi Pills. I fell in love then and have been delighted as time has pass at what an amazing and versatile creator she’s become.  Who will you fall in love with at the Hair Fair this year? Continue reading

Hair Fair Long Hair Part One

A few days ago there was a discussion of whether all the iterations of long hair have already been made. In other words, the “there is nothing new under the sun” argument that has been around for millennia. Well, take a look, and see if you think they are all the same.

You know, they say there are only 7 plots – but there are millions of stories.

Gin & Tonic

jun29_002

 

The bright lemon and lime colors in the top and skirt from Tee*fy make me happy.  It makes me think of hot summer days and cold summer drinks.  I have a real love for gin & tonic and that crushed fresh lime is so wonderful. I love salads made with some fresh squeezed lemon juice or lime juice and generally buy a 3 pound bag of lemons every month. I used to buy about a dozen limes every month, too, but they have gotten too expensive, doubling in price since last year.
