How many different Holiday parties will you have to attend this year? I’m kind of sick of wearing yellow gold, red, and green, probably because I wear them all year round. For some reason, the softer tones are resonating with me lately. So for this party look, I went for a softer palette, brushed golds instead of bright, rose gold, and rusts. It’s still festive, and probably perfect for New Year’s Eve, but it’s not going to be stuck in my closet 11 months out of the year, I can bring it out and reuse it (for reasons other than the huds!)
How did your Black Friday shopping go? I’ll just say I was glad to have some store credit at places because I’ve totally blown my budget this month! Luckily I didn’t need anything to get most of this look! The dress, base makeup, shoes, and hair are all FREE. The stockings are a group gift from a gift with a join fee, and the jewelry and eyeliner are on SALE! I can deal with that.
Let me talk about the sales first, because they aren’t likely to last forever. Beloved Jewelry is extending her Black Friday deal on her NEW “Liatris Set” until December 3. That’s the earrings and necklace I’m wearing here. Oh, my goodness is it customizable! It’s like Sonic’s Drinks for a set of jewelry. First the basics, you can choose between 12 separate metals, 22 gems, which you can change both the main gem, and the accents, and 12 different shades of pearl. I tried to do Missy Math on this, and after my head exploded doing the outcomes formula without my old ti-82 calculator, I think there are 33,264 possible combinations if my formula of 12(2ncr22)12 is right. Which would make each unique look less than 0.002 lindens, just for the matched set, even more, if you do earrings or necklace separate for this look. Well, you get the point, and I don’t want to do another combinations formula again! I went with rose gold, ametrine for the main gem, beige pearls, and smoky quartz for the accents.
My eyeliner is still on sale for 88 lindens in the fatpack of 8 eyeliners by ATIA’s. I’m using Soft Focus Eyeliner 5, which can also be bought independently for the full price of 25L.
So you were patient with my discussion of sales, but now what you really want to know is what’s free. My dress is in the package of group gifts for Ben’s Boutique, there’s also a necklace, scarf, and top in the package. The “Loya Dress” comes with a hud of 18 colors, and you can change the color of both the dress and belt separately. (no combination math is done for you because x of free is still FREE!)
My shoes are a gift set out at the current Gacha Garden’s Event from Essenz. This “Rust” shade is the FREE gift of the “Barcelona Shoe” that you can play the gacha for, with black and white being the rares at 50 lindens a pull. The Seed of Inspiration set out is the black Barcelona Shoe with a color hud of 18 for the bow, also at 50 lindens! The Barcelona shoe comes sized for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza.
My makeup is a group gift from The Little Black Dress, that also comes with a skin and eyebrows for classic avatar and omega applier. The Little Black Dress group is FREE to join! Keep in mind that I’ve spiced up the look with the heavy eyeliner, so that portion is not part of the “*LBD* gift makeup.” I know I mention LBD alot, but that’s where I have most of my basics from. The basics always show up!
My hair I scored off of a lucky chair at Tameless. I was lucky enough to catch it on a wild card round. Like all Tameless hair, it has prim parts which softly sway with your movements, and is oh so very shiny! The lucky chair version of the “Evion Hair” comes with the Fantasy Hud of 20 bright colors. I’m using the “Goth Red” There is also a hud for a streak in the bangs that includes options from the naturals hud as well. I didn’t opt to use the streaks.
You Should Join This Group
My stockings are part of a group gift from Blacklace. All of Blacklace’s omega lingeries have options to independently apply parts of it. These “nude” stockings were included in the group gift “Starlight -Azure Lace Set” I snapped a pic a while back wearing the entire azure set, so I’ll show that here, naturally, it’s just the lingerie, not the shoes, hair, jewelry, etc. The Blacklace VIP group is 100 Lindens to join.
I hope you like today’s look! I went about broke putting it together for you since it involved the trip to the Gacha Garden, and I can never resist much when I’m there!
