On Beyond Zebra

Snapshot_1312

There’s no limit to how much you’ll know, depending how far beyond zebra you go.

Dr. Seuss
My son adores Dr. Suess books, I guess he gets that from me, because I still adore them myself, just on a different level.  He’s really really into spelling right now, and I literally spend all day spelling everything to him, but I’m more than happy to do it, he’ll need these skills for more effective communication as his verbal language is pretty severely limited. Although, he did tell me this morning when I went to help him because his shoes were on the wrong feet “I’m independent!” I agree he’s very independent when it comes to making messes. Something about this dress from Gypsy Chic just said fun and whimsy to me, and Seuss is definitely the master in that department.  Just like yesterday, I have a wide variety of ways to find your goodies, with a few 100 lindens or less nabs from Dazzle, a lucky letter, a group gift, and a fishing prize!  And that, dear readers, is why I’m smiling.
You’ll have to forgive the old lady in me, I just wasn’t all that comfortable wearing Gypsy Chic’s “Palomma Zebra Dress” without something to cover my bits and bum.  I do happen to love it as a tunic top!  It’s soft and flowing, bright and cheerful, and the added waist corset adds a touch of earthiness to the colorful Zebra.  The Palomma Zebra Dress is an exclusive at the March round of Dazzle and is low priced at 100 lindens.  This dress comes sized for Maitreya, both Slinks, all 3 Bellezas, as well as a standard fitted with alpha layer.  This round of Dazzle runs through the 25th!

These studded ankle boots are also available from Gyspy Chic in their Dazzle display, and also just 100 lindens.  There are also several other colors available if you’re not keen on the white.  They come rigged for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza feet.  Additionally, it’s a good idea to check out the Gyspy Chic store, for just 5 lindens there are several cute gifts, as well as a gift for The Free Dove group right there in the store, as well as one for FabFree.  I’ve been a member of the Gypsy Chic group for a while now, even before being introduced to these fun designs at Dazzle.

Exposeur’s Pin Up Selfie Series -50L on marketplace sale!
Glint is also participating in Dazzle this month, and have yet another exclusive deal for us! This Onyx Zebra Necklace is unisex with its short length, leather cord, beads, and pendant.  The beads alternate between black and zebra print and a silver inlay of a Zebra head is set in shiny onyx. There is a resizer script on this fun and casual necklace, making it easy for anyone to wear.  It’s also quite low priced at 50 lindens!  I’ve talked about Glint very often in this blog, and while it appears that the lucky letters are no longer up, there is 7seas Fishing, as well as credit back on each purchase for group members, and group gifts.  Glint also participates in several hunts each month and has a very well organized hunt board with previews and hints clearly displayed.  The Glint group is FREE to join!  Obviously, I’ve been a member of the Glint group practically forever, and one great feature, which I’ve taken advantage of is customized jewelry.  Glint is also taking part in the Grow Your Awareness Hunt that I am organizing for next month!
 My sleek bob I also fished up this offering of Sn@tch’s Fish-4-This.  I finally completed the set last night, this hair is the last, due to a trade in group chat.  There’s also a blonde and a red version fished separately, and I was able to catch many of those before giving up and whining in group chat about it. There is a rigged and an unrigged version. Anyone can fish at Sn@tch with their 7seas Fishing pole, but Sn@tch chat is where the trading and sharing goodness happens.  The Sn@tch group is 200 lindens to join.

Exposeur’s Pin Up Selfie Series -50L on marketplace sale!
This super fun backdrop by Po^Z is also at Dazzle!  I was drawn to the earthy tones with the pops of color that allowed the zebra print to shine through without being overwhelming.  It’s happily also copy/mod. I discovered Po^Z through The Free Dove and struck up a conversation with the designer after I blogged her and dropped a courtesy note.  I’m happy to say that’s she’s a very friendly person, and one worthy of my financial patronage, little as it may be.  She’s also agreed to participate in the Grow Your Awareness Hunt, much to my delight!  Po^Z  currently has 4 group gifts available at the main store, including bento poses and a backdrop, and the group is FREE to join!
I snagged these tights by Baby Monkey for just 10L in the marketplace.  There 35 colors in the pack, for classic avatar, Slink and Maitreya appliers.  They were key in helping this old woman keep her modesty because frankly, no one wants to a see a 41-year-old mom’s flat white butt (even if Slink Hourglass definitely gave me a butt lift!)

Kokoro Poses – Alice Group gift/group FREE to join
The final two touches I have to share today are my ring and bracelet.  The blue “Ribbon Ring” is one of several group gifts at Earthstones.  I recently, thanks to Kimbra of Beloved, learned a way to make my older rings bento!  It’s actually fairly simple, the next time to wish to wear one, use attach to instead of wear, and choose the ring finger option.  Now it’ll be floating out in midair when you do this, but step on your pose stand, and using the edit function maneuver the ring to the proper place.  The Earthstone‘s group is 250L to join.
Now my bracelet I scored off a lucky chair at Zuri Jewelry  I subscribed to this group and they often have fun events and sales.  You also don’t need to join the group to play the lucky letters at Zuri!  You should pop into Zuri’s for more than the lucky letters though. There’s a two lucky dip type thingies, gifts that are FREE to anyone in the group gift area, including matching earrings for this bracelet, and then there are gifts for the FabFree, Maitreya Gifts and News, Teleport Hub, and Third Life groups, as well as a subscriber gift. I felt this Rayna Cord leather bracelet with the teal accents just went perfectly with this outfit playing on both the leather of Glint’s necklace and the and the spectrum of shading in Gypsy Chic’s zebra.
All my makeup, and of course, my favorite glasses have been previously blogged!  Check the style card for every detail!
“If you stay home with Zebra,
You’re stuck in a rut.
But on beyond Zebra,
You’re anything but!
When you go beyond Zebra,
Who knows…?
Dr.  Seuss
