Say It’s Not Too Early

I have been sitting with this dress impatiently in my inventory since October, trying to wait until it was more timely to post it.  I know it’s not Thanksgiving yet, but after posting rockabilly style in my last post, I had to stay in the 50s and finally post this AMAZING 1 linden Christmas dress.  I’ve made it no secret that I’m a fan of The Little Black Dress.  Who can blame me?  I like small shops with creative, quality, distinctive items at affordable prices. I already own this dress in a solid, I bought it months ago for roleplay, and I just feel gorgeous everytime I wear it.  So when I saw this Christmas version on the marketplace I immediately put it in my cart and checked out while doing a happy butt dance in my chair.

The “*LBD* 1950’s Housewife Xmas Dress” comes with system layers, Omega, and Slink Appliers so it can be used with almost any mesh body (if you have the omega link.)  The sleeves and skirt are mesh and resizable.  The skirt is flexi, so you can whirl and twirl and make it flare. And I have.  Alot.  It’s a good thing that the applier layer has panties!

So with all the peek-a-boos caused by all that twirling, I can show off these stockings I happened to pick up last week for Nessmarket.com’s birthday from the horde of lucky boards they had up.  I’m sorry the event is over and you can no longer try to win your own free pair, but they aren’t expensive and the “Snowfest Stockings” can be picked up on the marketplace for 49 lindens.  There are 3 shades in the pack, and Omega and Maitreya appliers.

I also found this hair on the marketplace for 1 Linden. It’s a promo price hair set on there by Ali&Ali that was specially designed to be worn under hats. It’s wonderful, fantastic really since you’re only paying 1 linden.  It’s shiny, the curls bounce, and it works great with hats!  Especially this one, with the veil, as the hair is actually hair and not just an attachment that comes out from underneath.  I’m not a bald-headed woman with a clunky hairbase only on.  Only the dark brown version of the “Pheobe Hair” is 1 linden.  But there is a light blonde for only 50 lindens, and all other shades are priced at 175 lindens.  Personally, I would have chosen these chocolate locks anyway.

So about that hat.  The red hat and veil, as well as the red handbag in the first picture, are from the “Runaround Sue” gacha at Belle Epoque.  It’s a 50 linden a pull gacha, and there are several pieces in the outfit in different colors in the machine.  I have previously posted a picture of me wearing the dress on my flickr.  If you’re interested you can see it here.  The “Runaround Sue” dress comes sized for Maitreya, but it was well animated and I could make it work with my Tudoto Mesh Body.

My extremely lustrous pearls are made by Tiffany Designs and can be grabbed for FREE, along with a gorgeous gown at The Free Dove.  The “Arista Gown” is located in the formal section at The Free Dove besides the gown and the necklace there’s also matching earrings and bracelets.  You need to be in The Free Dove group to claim this, but that group is, as always FREE to join!

I didn’t get a good shot of them, but I’ve painted my nails with Hello Dave!’s very new group gift for the FabFree group.  I couldn’t resist when I picked them up today, along with the new VIP group gift, which is this design in another color set, putting them on with this outfit once I saw the name since this is a bit early for Christmas wear.  The pallet is called “Early Wrapping”.  The FabFree group is FREE to join!
