I've been freebie/cheaping hunting since I figured out how to leave Orientation Island. In spite of that there are times when I am utterly dumbfounded by the the extreme quality of the gifts that some designers share with us. These two gowns fall into this category.
The first gown is a gift from Kouse's Sanctum when you join the subscriber group. The Boleyn Girl (loved the movie!) gown is a stunning Caribbean blue in a rich satin. It's braided trim and embroidered bodice lend to it's opulence.For great accessories for either gown head over to Deco at the Vagabonds and Festivale locations through Friday where everything in the store is 25L (prices are normally 100 - 800 L). I am wearing the Memories set below. One of her designs, the Platinum Pendant Set, is only 1 L, and is a great art deco design and perfect when I wear retro outfits. All jewelry at Deco is transferable so load up on prezzies while you have a chance. The Serenity Skin is from the group exclusive lucky board at Cupcakes. The group has a 100 L join fee. I've been a member since way back when I was in the Rosemar group and I have gotten my lindens back over and over again. Hempy Weezles turned me on to AY.LinE when she hollered at me to clear a lucky chair. This one is not on of the lucky sets, which are fat packs. There are 2 boards with different styles (fatpacks, not single colors). The stunning eyes (Strange Purple) are one of my much loved sets from Tacky Star, who's owner, Aura Faulta, has singlehandedly rescued me from shoddy eyes. 50 L per set in many sizes.
The Samantha gown from the Lucky Chair at Mystic Sky is a deep, luscious royal blue. It has a rich tapestry texture and braided trim. Still pictures cannot do justice to the way this dress moves. It's flow, for lack of better word at the moment, is purposeful, sensuous and regal. My friend, Skyler John, who owns Mystic Sky has become a fantastic designer. Some of her outfits for men, women and small people are 50 %. Check out her newest design, even if it is just to drool. The hair I am wearing here is AY.LinE's current group gift, Nemu. It comes in a fatpack and in two sizes. It has risen to the top of my favorite hair shops list!
