Yesterday, Sass handed out 300L gift cards to anyone who walked into the store. No group needed! I found these adorable footed pajamas with a multi-texture HUD. The doughnut pattern totally sold me on them. I dug through my inventory to find the rest of the doughnut themed items in this photo.
Today Mellwynn showed me one of her favorite places, a ballet studio. After we did some dancing, I went back home to do more unpacking. I came across this gown by Siss Boom and got sidetracked–of course! The skirt swirls beautifully while dancing.
BTW–the colors in the background were all done with in-world lighting with just hint of pink overlay in Photoshop. I don’t think I could repeat the accidental magic.
In my last post, I mentioned going back to my Lelutka head. Then came the hunt for a new skin. My last “regular” skin was from Lara Hurley. I think their skins are perfection! But everyone has strengths and weaknesses in their designs and theirs is no exception. They excel at skins for redheads and blondes, but I wanted to get back to my brunette looks with a moderately tanned skin that looked true to tone. I hunted around for hours in vain, even trying on other Lelutka heads in an effort to mix and match.
But then I remembered Pink Fuel. I absolutely LOVE their cosmetics– one of their lipstick packs I use for my everyday wear– and I knew they had a few skins in the store. I knew I’d found a winner when I tried on the Anja skins.
I should be unpacking my Friday and Saturday sale purchases as well as everything I got from the two hunts I did this week, but as usual, I got distracted by a sale ad and wandered off to !gO!. I hadn’t been in this store for about three years and was delighted by some of the things I saw. This dress is the current group gift.
In real life, I NEVER wear yellow. My skin has an olive cast and frankly, the color makes me look green. That’s not the best skin color for anyone except maybe a Martian. This made me shy away from wearing yellow in SL, but I’m learning that yellow is a great color against my current favorite skin.
I shopped until I dropped from L A G at the SL 16B event in Second Life. Of course, I had to pick up all of the marvelous group gifts. It was like Christmas in June! I have yet to open all of them — maybe I will by SL 17B!
I did pause at a few of my favorite designers’ shops to make some heavily discounted purchases. (There are some amazing deals at SL 16B.) I decided that the best way to show off this gorgeous hair and makeup is with a little bit of moonlight.
