OOTD + Podcast – Daily/Popup Sales Events

Sasy and I recently did a podcast on Daily/Popup Sales events.  Event creators, designers, and shoppers all are part of the cycle of shopping, and it’s in everyone’s best interest that a certain flow is maintained. I think we touched on a few areas where there is a lot to reflect upon.

Event: Valentine’s Shop & Hop

We usually hang out and just chat everything. We thought we would start podcasting some of our conversations as a way to engage and reflect our thoughts on various topics related to Second Life from a particular event we shopped to more expanded relevant topics.

Autumn Masquerade

48932217293_4705962fe1_4k.jpgAutumn by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

So Sasy invited me to tag along to a masquerade ball being held by The Fashion Loft. I’ve not been to a formal event in years. #platformdwelling So, there was some shopping to do. I decided it’s October, autumn, there was a high chance of many attending would go with a gothic or Halloween theme, in additional to very formal and elaborate. I’m pleased to say I calculated correctly. A few were horror/gothic, most were black or red gowns.

I went with Autumn as my theme and wanted to keep it very simple. I found this great mask first, a gacha from HEXtraordinary, and went from there for aesthetic. I knew it might be a challenge to find a good fit color wise, then I recalled the immense number of gowns from my past social life I collected long ago that hadn’t even been worn yet and with BOM now in effect I had many options. So glad Slink has come out with the Slink Physique Hourglass Mesh Body Bundle (Redux)! Very pleased that I can wear some fantastic system skins I have like the Isla skin by League.

I haven’t been a huge fan of mesh gowns as I don’t care for the movement waist down due to rigging, so I deep dived for some flexi. I revisited my Last Call, and Nicky Ree stash. However, nothing matched the tones of my mask I had already selected and was determined to use.

A quick review of Marketplace turned up this lovely autumn gown by Caverna Obscura. It’s available in a few autumn gradients, and I went with brown in case there was someone else with the same idea, they would likely go with the “Pumpkin” option which was more vibrant. The dress did not come with any alphas, so I found an alpha from a slip dress that worked.

The mask and dress were a great match. I tinted some gold opera gloves (system layer) from Adam n Eve to match the bodice. I eschewed jewelry and went with some particle sparkles in gold and green from Cole’s Corner which are currently available at Uber. Since I haven’t actually shopped in a while for formal wear or even purposely chosen an updo for such purposes I went with a half up half down style from Kuni. It was pulling out older content and I was pleased with how well much of it held up since mesh. Looking forward to hopefully wearing some in the near future.

Hair Fair 2019 – Mello

Hair Fair 2019 is where the hair is until September 1st, 2019! Stop by to find the latest by your favorite stores, or find some new ones! I found Mello!

I was drawn in by her ads, but stayed for the hair! She has 4 styles available, plus a gift hair with a fatpack hud! Shown here are 2 of my favs, and the gift. What I really liked was she included a tinting hud as well allowing me to put a tiny bit of pink on my brunette shade which bumped it a little more reddish. Totally gave me 80’s tinted hair mousse vibes making me miss my strawberry hair mousse. Included with the tint hud is the ability to add a little glow which gives it a little boost.

Purchases made at Hair Fair 2019 donate a percentage to Wigs for Kids. The minimum donated by each store is 15% so everything you buy during helps this great charity help children that suffer hair loss! For more information, ads, and slurls check out the blog!

More Houseboats Are Coming!

If you’ve been waiting for that dream houseboat get ready! According to Patch Linden, in less than 24 hours …40 regions of houseboats are coming! Yes, 40!

The map shows the regions have been moved into place and are located to the east of the Bellisseria landed regions. As yet there appears to be no causeway and/or bridge leading to this area. So those within the boating community should be delighted. It’s only a short trip via watercraft.

There is still a considerable amount of land that is heavily landscaped with public areas for gathering. Lovely beaches, conversation areas, picnic areas, and cuddle spots are dotted all over them. So get ready, I also imagine there will be some leaving the landed Linden Homes to try for them so you might even get an opening for a parcel if you’re lucky.  F5 is your friend.  Linden Homes are available for premium residents. Check out premium membership details at Second Life.
