Glamour

Glamour

I once visited Chicago. It was a pretty special trip. Sort of those once in a lifetime things. I packed carefully… fancy dresses, high heels, and an expensive pair of sunglasses. I only packed one pair of blue jeans for that trip because I knew I wouldn’t be needing comfortable clothes. I was going on a trip I knew I would never forget… a trip that was all about glamour and a world outside my own.

I remember finding out that if you slip the host extra money, you don’t have to have reservations… even if the restaurant claims that you do. I remember learning that if you have a special key in the right hotel… there are secret upper floors that take you to the penthouse. And that they hold parties up there sometimes for VIPs. I remember the food… little shrimps in martini glasses, olives settled upon squares of cheeses I didn’t know the names of, caviar and patte with fancy crackers, fine wines and champagne.

I wore a black dress of course, with the back cut out. And I was probably the only woman there wearing black lipstick. I was easily the youngest woman there among the crowd. It was a host of executives and their dates, and I stood out with my long hair in curls piled up on my head and my tattoos and my fancy sunglasses. I’ll never forget the couple who came up to me and my date and began chatting as if we were all old friends and asked me what I did. And my date told her I was a writer. It was mostly true.

These free gifts on Astrid remind me of that glamorous night… one I’ll never forget. Glittering and golden and filled with dreams. A night to be savored like the wine that I sipped from a crystal glass with my date that night.

No Rest for the Wicked

No Rest for the Wicked

After a long day of running away from mythical beasts… sometimes a girl just has to stop and take a rest… though generally, as they say, there is “no rest” for the wicked! (Thus this great pose for just 1L called No rest! Pick it up off the Marketplace Ha!)

Like Damian, I visited Redeux and picked up all the free gifts I could find. I love On a Lark and nabbed their gift the minute I saw it. I knew I had to show it off, even if it … showed off some boobage. So I had to be clever in how I delivered my picture. Thus my pose 😉 Sorry you’re missing out on the one sided coverage of this lovely camisk! It’s perfect for risky medieval or Gorean roleplay, however!

I added chains from Beyond the Mists (their free gift at their booth) and I was ready to go! OH and the 50L Friday item is still out at Pure Poison. It comes with a set of gorgeous colorchange heels as well as a set of anklets. I’m only showing off the anklets (who wears heels for medieval roleplay anyway?) But grab these before they disappear as they are GORGEOUS!

On Astrid:

Dress: On a Lark Drew Batik for Maitreya – FREE at Redeux

Chains around neck and waist: Beyond the Mists Gift Ring Chain for Maitreya – FREE at Redeux

Anklets: Pure Poison Farah Sandals & Bracelts (Heels not shown) – 50L for 50L Friday

Everybody’s gone surfin’

Surfing

Today I found wetsuits from La Perla and that gave me the idea to go to the beach and attempt to go surfing. I can’t say it was a huge success since I don’t have the best balance and I’m kind of clumsy, but it was a nice opportunity to catch up and relax some with Astrid afterwards, who joined me on my adventure. And let’s be honest, the suit looks amazing on her!

I’m happy to report that I did not lose any limbs. Maybe I watch too many movies, but in one of the last ones I saw how this lady drifted too far out on the ocean, stranded on a dead whale and was almost getting eaten by a shark! Come to think of it… I love the suit, but I don’t think I’ll be going back into the water.

Astrid took a picture too >>>

A Dangerous Light

A Dangerous Light_Budget LOTD

It’s dangerous to walk alone at night… but in roleplay that’s what makes it all the more exciting. Of course free clothes make the danger a little more fun if you have something snazzy for your favorite urban roleplay adventure that won’t break the bank!

Pick this one up!

Stop by and pick up your free group gift from EvelineInTheBox (free group join) and get this modern dress in all the standard sizes plus all the major mesh body types. It’s sure to have your heart beating fast even before you get to that dark alley way.

I paired it with some black bangles and a set of latex thigh highs from my inventory and was ready to go!

Dockside

DeckSide_Budget LOTD

Sometimes the view from the docks is as nice as the boating and fishing itself and it doesn’t hurt to have a proper outfit to go with it. I have always loved boats and boating and fishing… everything from fishing on small ponds, to deep sea fishing. And I really enjoyed exploring the sim I ran across this morning called Bonadventure Square. It’s worth adding to your “Sims to visit list” if you’re into exploring. The little rezzable boats were a treat as well as the bait shop with all of its trinkets.

Appropriate Attire

Before you go, be sure to pick up some appropriate nautical attire. I picked up a free dress from a new-to-me shop that I discovered called Just Ordinary where I smacked the no-group-needed Midnight Mania board and was rewarded with this lovely Leah Dress. It comes in all the standard sizes, as well as Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza.

Couldn’t resist…

I couldn’t resist picking up a new release from Roped Passion’s and I nabbed the Nanauli Sandals. These include a texture change hud with 10 color choices so you can easily make them match what you are wearing. At only 199L for the pair that means you are paying less than 20L per color.
