Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

Snapshot_090.png

So the virus from heck is still hanging on and I’m still too sick to attend the family Thanksgiving Dinner.  However, I will take the day and indulge in pumpkin spice everything. It may be the butt of jokes, and you may call me a basic white girl, but I am unashamed to delight in pumpkin spice.  I even have some free stuff to show you, as well as a dollarbie.

First things first though, the dress. It’s barely out of the cheap range, but there’s no way on earth I could resist a combo of pumpkin spice and argyle.  I mean come’on we’re talking about me here, and this sweater dress is just gorgeous!  “The Pumpkin Spice Argyle Sweater Dress” is new at Poeme.  This particular shade sells for 139 lindens, there are 9 different color sets to choose from, and if you can’t choose just one there’s a fatpack for 799 lindens. The sweater dress comes in 5 standard sizes, and lined up perfectly with my alpha hud in those spots where my chubbiness ran over.

But of course, I have deals to share too. There’s a “Navaho Turquoise” color set Poeme has offered as a gift for the FREE to join SL Frees and Offers Group.  This color pallet isn’t in the fatpack nor available for sale, so it’s just an extra to your preferred shade.  I also made another little discovery in Poeme’s new outlet area upstairs.  You can pick up a single shade of a solid cashmere version for only 59 lindens, or a fatpack of 7 shades for only 199 lindens.

There’s also what I shared yesterday, that the Poeme group is only 1 linden to join, and there’s 6 lucky boards and 2 midnight madness boards upstairs.  Where you can snag 2 colors of the cashmere sweater dress with a little time and luck, for FREE, as well as all the other awesome things Elysian has up there.

Don’t these boots just go perfectly with the sweater dress?  Even better, at least to my mind, is that they are the “coffee” shade of Belle Epoque‘s latest group gift “The Mina Boots” and come with 6 shades; black, brown, coffee, olive, wine, and navy.  The Belle Epoque group is only 10 lindens to join. There are 4 group gifts up, and group members get credit back on purchases.  There are gifts for the FabFree and Teleport Hub groups up at the store, and there are 5 lucky letter boards to try to win.

Janire, the owner of Belle Epoque, is also really sweet.  A few months back, my friends and I that share a linden house were going to decorate it with Vintage Pinups.  I went and bought us all vintage swimsuits from Belle Epoque in different colors, and totally messed up!  Trying to gift 3 sets, buying tops and bottoms separately, as well as trying to buy my own set, I made a hash of it.  But Janire was kind enough to patiently sort it out with me, and instead of being irritated, as I deserved, she was very kind and thankful for my buying her designs.  So rest assured, I’m not going to send you to a shop with shoddy customer service!  Oh, and another great thing about Belle Epoque 25 linden Tuesdays!  Each week is some new item to buy for just 25 lindens, and Janire usually always gets it up early and gives us extra time, she’s just cool like that.

I’ve continued both my pumpkin and my coffee theme with a few of my accessories.  My earrings are also from Poeme, but they aren’t available right now.  I picked them up last month at the Hocus Pocus Cart sale in a fatpack for only 10 lindens. There were 4 spooky shades in the pack, with either gold or silver metals.  I slipped on the “punkin'” with gold accents. Of course, I knew about the event because I was in the Poeme group and got the notice. *wink wink nudge nudge*

My thigh-highs also stick with the coffee theme.  I picked up a fatpack of basic thigh high nylons months ago from the marketplace from *Gorgeouz* for 79 lindens.  There are 7 shades in the fatpack for omega applier or standard avatar.  I’m wearing, “coffee” of course

My Pumpkin Spice Latte was included in Sevyn East’s hunt prize for the Jerky Turkey Hunt.  There’s a whole outfit with a hud in the box, not just the latte.  The outfit includes the sweater and skirt together, with hud, a scarf, and the endearing pumpkin spice latte.  There are 4 different textures for the top, and the skirt and scarf have 4 different colors of the gingham print.  Sizes included:

  • Standard with Alpha
  • Slink – Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • Belleza -Feya, Isis, Venus
  • The scarf is mesh and sizable

I snapped a quick shot of myself wearing the whole outfit.

This gorgeous top knot but is from a slap of a midnight madness board at Olive.  “The Peaches Hair” cycles through Olive’s midnight madness offerings and comes with all of Olive’s color huds.  I used the black found in the glitter hud, because I don’t have grey hairs, I have natural glitter! Group isn’t needed to slap these boards, nor to play the 10 lucky letter boards that are available. I suggest at least subscribing to Olive though, they participate in many events and have such a fun style!

This just leaves my makeup and nails to be discussed.  I wanted to show you something that’s in one of the boxes that The Little Black Dress has set out for new characters. If you are or have a new female friend who joins, don’t do like what was done to me and send them to the freebie galaxy and freebie dungeon where I came out with blinging everything and no clue what went where.  Send them instead to The Little Black Dress where there are 3 FREE, COMPLETE avatars to choose from. Everything, skin, shape, hair, rigged mesh clothes, shoes, makeup, even eyelashes are included.  I’m wearing the makeup included in the middle one “Free Gift Starter Avatar” and frankly, even though I now know my way around a bit, I still go back to it from time to time! It’s good even for those losers, who like me, started a Second Life character years ago, got frustrated and then came back later when I could no longer get those 30-day deals, and a good one to add to that list since it’s really nice stuff.
