As my UK friends complain about a 22°C “heat wave” (71°F), and another one in Arizona tells me it’s in the hundreds F where she lives, I, somewhere in the middle, struggle to sleep and suffer next to the fan all day. Anyone telling me global warming isn’t real must be up for an earful! Anyway, I am slowly going through the lovely things I haven’t had the chance to show you, and here are a few of them.
Honestly, this year’s Vintage Fair is just the gift that keeps on giving. Digging through the many items the designers sent, I find more and more lovely things every day. And as I said in a previous post, I’m only showing you the things I love. Not saying the rest isn’t good, but if you know me, I’m not into very sexy clothing or lingerie. Other’s will show those much better than I would… You may want to take a look at Ashia Tomsen’s blog, for instance.
Anyone who’s actually been to Paris, I mean, really been there, spent time, will tell you that it’s not at all the romantic city people think it is. The smell is horrible, there’s dog poop everywhere, people are rude… Whenever I spend even just one day there, my hair gets super dirty, and I can’t breather properly. If you ever plan on visiting France, let me know, I’ll give you the name of a dozen other cities you’ll love, just, not Paris.
Someone on Plurk was saying the other day that they miss ETD. For those of you who weren’t around then, ETD (Elikapeka Tiramisu Designs) used to be a famous hair brand in SL, that disappeared for a while, and then the designer came back under a new brand, Elikatira. Well you know what? I think her hair now is just as good as it used to be, and the little number she pulled yesterday for Fifty Linden Fridays proves it. Janiah is a super cute hairstyle, that matches perfectly with my lovely Tres Blah dress.
I am not feeling overly inspired to write anything today, but I wanted to show you a few gorgeous things that I found these past few weeks, at events, stores, or buried deep in my inventory. I’ll start with the hair. I’ve been in the Truth VIP group since the very beginning of the new concept, and some months I barely logged in, or if I did I was too busy with other things to really check what the gift was. So when I found Ginevra, last November’s gift, I just went wow. The super pretty glasses are free from Balaclava, they were the demo for this week’s Fifty Linden Friday offer. Make sure to check FaMESHed this month if you haven’t yet, the Tres Blah dress is yet another little wonder.
You know what’s funny? I started putting together that outfit a few days ago, and the weather was bright and sunny and frankly a bit too hot for me out here. I guess I was hoping for a little rain to cool the air. Well it worked, I was awaken in the middle of the night by the sound of very heavy rain.

Guess what? I put together another very cool look, with the last of my FaMESHed gifts. Pyjamas, socks, earrings and necklace are free from the event. I promise, in a few days I’ll also show you things one actually has to pay for. In the meantime, let me enjoy the beauty of my l$ balance not dropping down for a couple more hours.
The very cute hair, Jacica, is the latest group gift from Truth. Seriously, if you haven’t joined yet, what are you waiting for? The monthly gift is always a complete fat pack, with styling HUD and all the options. The value is incredible, and all for just a one time fee of 350l$, barely the price of one colour pack!
Oh hey! remember that post I did yesterday where I told you about that one full outfit I was able to make only with gifts from the FaMESHed anniversary round? Well here’s a second one. The hair, earrings, dress, septum ring, bracelet and shoes are all free from the event!
The gorgeous tattoo is also a gift from this upcoming round of We ♥ RP, that’s also an anniversary round.
This month’s Fameshed is an anniversary round, and most of the designers there have gifts for visitors. The problem with gifts at events is that usually, it’s one tiny crappy item that absolutely doesn’t reflect the quality of the designer. I always wonder why they even bother, if anything, it gives the brand bad publicity. Well, this time, it’s different. I was able to set up a complete outfit, only with freebies from the event. I highly recommend going, there are some gorgeous things that I’m going to go back and buy.
