Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.
After such a warm fall, it seems that the colors are finally upon us. No better time for a walk into the countryside to enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty. My favorite time of year and the golden leaves of fall are my favorites of the all the colors. As I walk, the beauty of Robert Frost’s Nothing Gold Can Stay, and the nippy fall air reminds me that this time is brief, to get out and enjoy the crisp fragrant air. However, before I did that, I stopped in at Legendaire’s big sale and scooped up some fabulous things for my cold weather wardrobe.
Many of the outlet items at Legendaire are down to 28 lindens! I snagged these slouchy calf-length boots for that price, and they come with a HUD of 10 colors! I’ve always been partial to red boots, I blame it on my repeated watching of Footloose as an impressionable tween. These “Georgia boots” come in sizes for XXS-L and I didn’t even need to remove my feet and the largest fit perfectly, even with the odd-to-fit ankles on my Tudoto feet for shoes.
I also snagged this hoodie while there. It comes with a HUD for 10 different texture options. Also in the box are fishnet thigh-high leggings and a pair of pumps. Obviously not to be used for walking in the woods! The hoodie alone is worth more than the 49 lindens I paid, and the other goodies for mix and matching are just gravy! The sweater and thighs come sized for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza, and the pumps come sized for slink. Aside from all the texture options, I love this hoodie because it’s not terribly bulky and is more form fitting than others I’ve tried on where I look all chubby drowned in yards of fleece.
Even after this huge sale is over, don’t forget Legendaire always participates in several grid wide sales groups, and has a couple of a 29 linden items in the front of the shop. Also, they participate in the 1 Hour 1 Linden sales group, and at least while I was on this weekend I saw three of those deals go up! Best way to snag info on those sales, is to join the in-world group which is only 50 lindens to join, which not only keeps you up to date, but grants you dozens of group gifts! I pride myself on recommending the best paid groups to join, and this is the top of my list!
Free Free Free Free!
There are five freebies in this look, well sort of, some do require some initial investment, one a group, the other a 7seas Fishing pole, which if you’re a reader of mine, you hopefully have that pole already!
My hair is completely FREE. The “Beatrice Hair” by Tameless is available at the Free Dove. It is one of my favorites, I love the way the designer uses a mix of sculpted prims, mesh, flexi prims and non-flexi prims to create a natural look. It blows in the breeze, it flows through your movements. It also comes resizable, with a full natural color hud, and a roots option. Talk about an awesome freebie! You do need to have group space to join the Free Dove to snag this, but the Free Dove group is FREE to join!
Again, I opted to wear the “Gel Glitter Nails Ombre” that are a prize in Birthright by Kosmetic in a different shade than I wore here. It has a huge selection of 18 vibrant, sparkly, ombre polishes that span the rainbow. In the box are appliers for Omega, Slink, Maitreya, and Vista.Birthright is a game by Pulse, it’s fairly gory and scary, be warned. I’ve blogged about a few other game prizes in previous posts, but now that Halloween is passed, you can snag the game HUD for FREE and run through hunting up the dozens of prizes. It’s still just as scary, and it will take a couple of hours to completely run through it, if you’re hunting up the prizes.
My applied jeans are a FREE marketplace gift from Delizio. The “Delizio – Jeans” comes with appliers for Omega and Maitreya in 9 colors. Talk about a great gift! Who can have enough jeans, and 9 colors to go with anything!
This “Dream Necklace” I fished up at Glint with my 7 Seas fishing pole. I’m fairly sure I’ve not yet fished up all the goodies there, but there are several I’ve reeled in already. Naturally, you don’t have to pay when you catch an item, but there is an initial investment in a fishing pole. 100 lindens for the casual one, and 250 lindens for the pro, if you wish to skill up your fishing ability and enter contests that are around the grid. I HIGHLY recommend a pole to everyone! Also, while you’re there fishing, you can set your camera to watch the two lucky boards that are at the enterance of the store. No group is required for the boards or the fishing, but the Glint group is FREE to join, and there are gifts available, a weekly 500 linden gift card raffle, and credit for your purchases if you do!
Finally, my eyeshadow is from a lucky chair at Arcane Spellcaster that is group only. There are 5 shadows in the box, I’m wearing “AK 16”, and come in standard tattoo, omega, slink, and lelutka appliers. I joined Arcane Spellcaster months ago, and the fee is 250lindens. For the group join there are 5 monthly gifts, the lucky chair, a weekly 50% section for members, and a Midnight Madness board that automatically re-adds you if the target isn’t met. However, twice in that time, the group gift has been 500 linden store gift cards, which can go a long way if you shop the discounts. Also at Arcane Spellcaster, you’ll find group gifts for many of the free gift groups.
❤ The Little Black Dress
My last two details are from that amazing store, The Little Black Dress. I’ve applied a tank top under the hoodie, that’s from what I feel is one of the best ideas for a group gift I’ve ever seen. The “*LBD* Basic Tank group gift”, comes with a basic tank and panties set with an option of 4 different colors, with omega, slink, and maitreya appliers, as well as standard layers. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used this, but it’s alot! It’s also great as a “glitch layer” sometimes animations cause peek-a-boos, and often the back of my tops glitch because of using a non-mainstream body. Applying this tank under often fixes the appearance of it. The Little Black Dress group is FREE to join!
My lipstick is another one of the sample dollarbies that LBD has on the marketplace. In this case, the *LBD Supreme Large Scarlet Lipstick Sample” This amazing lipstick comes in standard tattoo, omega, lelutka, catwa, and akeruka appliers.
