I used to be Snow White, but I drifted.
– Mae West
There’s just something I love about taking pure whites and making them ultra sexy. Always reminds me of the Mae West saying I quoted above. Drifted snow, a white heat that’s the opposite of pure and virginal. In the right combination, it doesn’t have to be skimpy to be sexy, just short enough, just tight enough, but with sensual fabrics like the fur and satin I’ve got going on here. Also, it’s all mostly FREE! There’s a group join fee required for the coat, I purchased my lipstick on sale in a fatpack, and my skirt was a 10L find, but other than that, you’re looking at not spending a single red linden. Three items are from lucky chairs, however, so you will be investing some time.
That’s what money’s for. I’d look good in a mink coat, honey.
-Verna in the Movie White Heat
I didn’t have alot of money, so there’s no mink, but I did end up with this gorgeous white fur jacket for nearly nothing. Petite Mort just updated their lucky letter boards the other day, and this white fur jacket is one of the six prizes you can win. The lucky boards at Petite Mort are group only, but the group has a modest fee of only 75 Lindens. Not only can you win this jacket along with the 5 other lucky board prizes, there are also 5 group gifts available to members. The “Arctic Fur Jacket” comes sized for all Belleza, Slink and Maitreya Mesh bodies.
I hit The Little Black Dress several times this month, as Peony kept adding Christmas gifts to the hunt. They are all totally awesome gifts by the way, and most will work year round. There are 12 little red boxes hidden around the store, not sure how much longer they will be there, so head down there soon and scoop them up! Anyway, on one of my passes through the stores, the lucky chair hit my letter and I was the winner of “*LBD* Mystery Dress 3.” I love love love this dress. I’m not modeling the entire thing, just the bodice that comes either as standard layer or omega applier. Also in the box is a thin belt, an A-line skirt in standard sizes, or instead of the A-line skirt, there’s this fantastic slanted flexi skirt, that has a layer of net made of stars over the fabric layer of the flexi. I’ve been planning on blogging the whole thing, but when I won this jacket the other day, I just knew the bodysuit portion of the mystery dress 3 was all I wanted underneath it. So this little lucky win of mine is very versatile. If you’ll forgive me for a couple of unstyled, low-quality shots, I tossed it on quick and took a couple of snaps, one in the flexi, and the other in the A-Line and belt. Just another positive note about the outfit, the XL standard sized A-Line skirt worked with my Slink Hourglass body, with just the largest part of my ample hiney needing to be alphaed.
My glasses are also from The Little Black Dress. When you join the group there are 9 group gifts available. Peony has had some great ideas and given basic items. One such gift is a pair of color change glasses, which are also copy/mod. I wanted a light metallic gold pair, and I wasn’t successful in getting the look I wanted with the color window, so instead, I modified the pair with a gold and white texture I found on google and uploaded for 10 lindens. It worked well, with one small issue, by changing the texture, via select face as to not make the lenses solid, it overwrote the LBD design that is originally on the earpieces. But you don’t have to go to as much work as I did for a great pair of customizable glasses, as it’s extremely simple to customize these with just a color. And these 9 gifts, the lucky chair, and the 12 Christmas gifts are available to group members and the group is FREE to join!
One last lucky letter prize to share in this outfit. My jewelry is a win from G Sloane. I was in the store to snag the Christmas gift that Geryn set out, as well as the Peace on Earth 10 dress when my letter came up. Lucky lucky me! I won this matched set of luminous pearl and gold earrings and necklace. The “GSC Pearl Drop Earrings and Necklace” are modifiable so they can be resized to a perfect fit. I’m also wearing them as full bright, but that can be turned on or off as well. So a trip down to G Sloan not only offers you a chance to find the PoE10 gift, but by joining the FREE group you can snag a lovely red sequin gown as a Christmas gift, and try your luck at 3 lucky letter boards. I blogged another outfit that is available on the lucky boards past fall. Also be sure to check out the sales, there are some lovely things to be snagged for as low as 35 lindens.
My skirt I snagged at The Naughty List 2 in the MooH stall for 10 lindens. Every stall at the event has a 10L item actually. But I loved the high-waist and draped simplicity of this mini skirt, and it comes with a HUD of 10 colors making it a feasible basic component for many many outfits. The “Tia Flare Skirt” comes in a ton of sizes:
- Fitmesh: XS-L
- Slink: Physique and Hourglass
- Belleza: Freya, Isis, Venus
- Tonic: Fine and Curvy
I try to hit up as many events that my favorites are featured at as possible. The Winter’s Hollow Event is open through the 28th. My hair is the FREE hunt prize in the Sn@tch stall. Once you find the snowflake you can buy the Delilah Hair with the ombre hud (I just left it as it came from the box) for 0 lindens. There’s also a FREE gift in the stall, and my lipstick is available at the Sn@tch Winter’s Hallow stall for only 100L (150L in the mainstore, where I bought and paid for it!) The Sn@tch Lucious Cream Lipsticks come with 24 shades as standard tattoo layer or omega applier. Talk about a steal, less than 5 lindens a lipstick color! I’m wearing the Rose Gold shade from this pack.
Be sure to wander around the event, there are a few other stalls that have hunt items for 5 lindens, as well as some Winter Solstice gifts under the tree. Oh, and I’ll share a secret, if you really love this Delilah hair, the hair and all of the color huds instead of just the Ombre are available at the Mainstore, also for FREE, as long as the Christmas gifts remain up under the tree.
Last but not least, we have these stunningly clean white wool boots that are a FREE gift from Have Unequal for the Women Only Hunt. These pristine, warm boots come sized for Maitreya, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Belleza Isis. The Woman Only Hunt ends December 31st, so there’s still a few days left to snag the prizes.
