So, League had a sale. If you’re very, very lucky, the sale prices are still in effect even though, technically, the sale is over. I just love League – it’s been around forever (since 2007), and the texture and sculpting work is just amazing, I think. I’ll never forget when League first came out with the gartered stockings. I think they were the first in SL to offer them, and if not the first, they were the first store to do the gartered stockings so well. They are super sexy and super cute, too. So, when I read that League was having a 50% off sale, I just had to run over and fill up my shopping bag.
Of course, I had to get some new gartered stockings, so I picked up the brambled pattern – so cute! I fell in love with the dirty lace skirts, and had to get both colors, black and brown – brown is shown here. The Nyx corsets just blew me away – via HUD you can change whether the straps are assymetrical -one down, one up, or symmetrical – both down. You can also choose whether the outlines of the straps are brown, black, or without outlines. Then the corset itself has several modes – how many seams you want on the corset, the color of the seams, plus the colors of the spikes, and even whether you want the spikes to show in the first place. Amazingly versatile! Now, the Nyx corset actually has skirt add-ons that match them perfectly, but I challenged myself to do more of a mix-up outfit, so voilà.
Now, I did mention (red)Mint in my post title, right? (red)Mint is another absolutely favorite store of mine because Moni Schulze can really create *anything.* She does skins, shoes, clothing, hair, jewelry, shapes. Just about everything you need to beautify yourself. Many of her products (especially the skins) have a definite fantasy feel to them, but everything else can really be worn by *anyone*! Case in point, the wonderful new hairstyle worn here. It is perfect for wearing under hats without having to adjust anything. And the textures are among the best in SL, I believe. Plus, when you wear (red)Mint hair, you *won’t* look like everyone else in SL! The boots are also by (red)Mint – they come in every color you could possibly want – and they come with various sock options. They are actually not a new item. However, Moni released new sock add-ons for the boots. I feel a bit bad for not showing you some of the socks, but I tried and they just didn’t go with the rest of this outfit. Plus, I wanted to show League’s famous gartered socks! But with the (red)Mint boots, you can change the sock textures and patterns via HUD a gazillion ways – darks, lights, stripes, you name it. Plus, you can choose whether you have one sock up or both, and there are appliers for all the current mesh booty add-ons that so many people seem to love. Here’s a close up before I forget… See the pretty textures on the hair?? Yummy!
My skin is by Belleza, the recent Fifty Linden Friday redhead skin (love it!), and my bracelets, horns, collar, and necklace is by the Plastik, another recent FLF set. My nails are by the incomparable +:WTG:+. As you may know, I was away for over a year, and I’m still finding “new” stuff in my inventory (new to me, anyway). If you’re looking for over-the-top-fancy nails with rings, lots of options, and just exquisite workmanship, +:WTG:+ is your shop. These nails are an older item and are not made for SLink hands, but they look damn good even without the fancy mesh hands, I think!
Ok, I really didn’t mean to write this much! I’m long-winded, huh? I’ll shut up now and just say…
Happy hunting, gathering, shopping, etc. *mwah*!
