Resisting Temptation

•November 15, 2014 • Leave a Comment

Trying to be good final

It’s the season for yummy food around these parts. Cupcakes are not the least of it, but I have cute clothes to wear, so I’m trying to resist. This round of the thrift shop inludes adorable food platters from [CIRCA] that dispense the cupcake you see on the table. I’m trying so hard not to gobble it down. We shall see.

Also from this round of the thrift shop are my hair, my jewelry, this fluffy warm coat and the peg legged cords (do people still call them that?) I was so happy to find them to pair with my Thrift Shop offering, the Heeled Croc Loafers. The slurls below show you where in the event these items can be found, because it’s a pretty large event, but spend some time wandering around to see all the amazing deals!

More Dirty Turkeys

There are dozens of “must get” gifts in this hunt and I’m showing you just a few more here, plus these great boots from *Promagic* which you can get from clicking the subscriber in the store.  All the Dirty Turkey Hunt gifts are free. I’m especially fond of the two lip gloss gifts because I love changing up the look of a skin with extra makeup.   Both of these are well done and have worked on a number of different skins.

My “Wing Rings” are my first attempt at a gacha in a long while, and I rather like how they came out.  You can take a stab at them  this month at the Thrift Shop event, and pick up my Heeled Croc Loafers for only 20L while you are there.

Alexx is wearing my new Western Stitched Boots along with some other low cost finds from around the grid.  By way of full disclosure on the boots, he had to adjust his avatar hover in the edit appearance panel so the boots would ride a bit more beneath the jeans than normal.  Fitting male pants to shoes is seemingly more of a challenge than for females.

So cute Dirty Turkey

Dirty Turkey started today, and if you know me at all, you know I’m excited.  I’m usually in bed by 10 and it’s currently nearly 2:00 am, but I’m not asleep because I haven’t FINISHED.  But as I went along I kept throwing things on and you know what?  I look adorable.  So here’s a little preview for you.  The Dirty Turkey starts at Razor and features over 130 stores offering up great prizes.  I’m in there too, around the middle, but I’ll show that later.  He hint/slurl blog is here.  You’ll need to skip a few that aren’t ready so keep an eye on that page.

Sequin Slippers

•October 9, 2014 • Leave a Comment

More colors of the slippers featured in my last post are now in the store or on marketplace.  10L for individual colors or 50L for the fat pack of 12, these are a nice addition to dress up casual outfits and are modifiable, to fit a number of mesh feet reasonably well (try the free wearable demo in pumpkin if you want to be sure you can make them fit).  And if you just like free stuff, the teal pair is in a lucky board, and you can pick up the yellow pair as a gift in the store by the front desk.

It’s Cold Inside Myself

eloquenceBut not so much outside. Wearing a big coat cheers me up though, and makes me feel a bit like it might be fall, despite the 95 degree weather.

Many of these gifts came from the Eloquence opening event. The group is free to join and there are tons of gifts scattered around the edges of the landing. My favorite thing was this skybox, of which you are only seeing a corner. The lovely baked textures are just wonderful!

The hair is available in male and female styles for as a group gift, in a fat pack with an enormous range of colors at Tableau Vivant’s reopened store. I think at one time the group was pay to join (and may be again) but it’s free at the moment.

I started this look with this dress from {dollie*} for the Bling Hunt. It has a great little slipped strap detail, but I felt like covering that up today. It was a bit challenging finding mesh that would completely cover the straps, but this thick coat from Poison does the trick, for free!
