And I’m back! I have a new computer that lets me run SL without crashing (much). I’m still waiting on my beast rig to come in, but for now the new one let’s me run shadows. Yep. Shadows. \o/
This lovely, slinky black mesh dress was LouLou’s hunt prize for the Where is the Concert Hunt which just ended. (*sad face* sorry I’m late with this.) The jewelry – earrings and bracelets – are also from LouLou and you’ll be able to see them better in the pictures below. The skin is from Illusory for January’s Collabor88, which is available until the 8th. I just love the Paige skins! Keep those makeups coming, please! The hair is the latest release from ploom, the Lilyan hair, which features asymmetrical bangs and two buns on top. More pics coming up!
The bracelets, including the armband worn on the left, are an updated version of LouLou&Co.’s London Calling set. The shoes are from Nardcotix, which I picked up at the big sale they had last month. You’ll see more Nardcotix shoes in this post. I’ve been without a decent computer for about a month and unable to play as Des, so her inventory is a bit old. But these items are still awesome and maybe you’ll see something here that reminds you to wear these items if you’ve already picked them up. If you’re like me, you probably have stuff in your inventory that you *had* to have, but never get around to wearing. Dust them off and put them on! You spent the time to get them, you might as well enjoy them at least once!
And here’s a closeup of the pretty skin and the jewelry, again with shadows! (Did you hear me squeal with delight?) I *love* these rather new earrings from LouLou&Co. They’re called Moulin Rouge and have Eiffel Towers on them! Vive La France! They come in two sizes – I’m wearing the shorter ones so they wouldn’t be hidden in the dress’ shoulder ruffle.
I thought I was done for today when Ghani dropped a folder of +++Blue Blood+++ Gacha items on me. Roxy is a cute little halter style corset that comes in four colors; I was so pleased that the colors matched the LouLou&Co Betty mesh skirts perfectly, so I took some more pics!
First up is the red versions of each. I’ve changed my ploom hair to a lovely red, and donned a brand new skin from Adam n Eve called Amaris. Here I’m wearing the Natural tone bare. You can also see the other LouLou&Co bracelets I was wearing with the Mary dress above. These are called Diamond Rock and are another updated style. Ok, I’m almost done! Here are the other three colors of Betty and Roxy. Don’t those names seem to go together? I picture Betty and Roxy working down at the factory together while their menfolk are off fighting the war. lol
The Betty skirts come in three styles – one has no front seams; the other two have seams and a variations on the waistline. I’m wearing style no. 3 in the red and black skirts; and styles 1 and 2 in the teal and purple skirts. I also added some tattoo layer makeup I found in my inventory to the Adam n Eve skin.
Well, that’s it for today, so until next time…
Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, etc. *mwah*!
