Hiya everyone! Today I have more Advent calendar gifts from several very thoughtful designers. I was curious so I looked into the history of Advent calendars to see where the tradition got started, and it seems to have been well over 100 years ago in Germany. Second Life residents have always found clever ways to translate RL things into our world, and this is a lovely way to celebrate the holiday season. The gifts you will see here either need no group tag at all, or a group tag that is free to join.
First we have today's gift from ML Fashion which is simply named Gift Day 10. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and even a classic fitted version. I couldn't help but notice the texture of the dress, and how it looks like stripes of gemstones. No group is necessary to claim this calendar's goodies. The link in my ending credits should take you directly to the calendar, but just in case it is located upstairs in the store.
Next we visit Ellnique Designs (formerly Shoenique Designs) and their Advent calendar which needs their group tag (free to join) to claim their daily gifts. This one is their **SD** Jureal Red Gown, in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. It also includes a silver ruffle attachment which I am wearing on the right, so you can see that this dress is beautiful with or without the addition.
It is always a treat to visit Eclectic Stars, which strongly appeals to my geeky side and makes me smile. Their calendar has a photo of Deadpool on it, lounging seductively, and today's gift is nontraditional in its color choices. Shifty - Pink Plastic Xmas has a fun flamingo design, with each wearing a Santa hat as a nod to the season, and the long sleeves make it a great choice for chilly weather. It comes in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. No group needed, just tickle Deadpool in the right place ;)
Applique` Chic has a pyramid of boxes shaped like a tree outside of their store, right where you land, and each is free to all on the current day and $10L each for prior dates. Today's AC: Festive Skirt Set G. Tree outfit found inside box #10 is a cozy style that is ready for a holiday outing. The top and skirt each come in classic S, M, L along with Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes.
My final look of the day is from Entice, which you can claim for your very own with their free group tag beneath the group members' tree (or $25L for non-members under the other tree). It's called Sweet Dixie Dress - Salmon, in a fantastic color with retro polka dots and crisp white belt, trimmed in white lace. The gift includes Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya versions. Such a pretty look, isn't it?
Tomorrow's post will be a late evening one, as my daytime will be ever so delightful (please note heavy sarcasm) thanks to a dental appointment. It's a lifelong fear and a lifelong commitment all rolled into one, and I take full advantage of the nitrous that makes it a little less stressful. Meanwhile I hope you all have a decent Monday, even if it is many people's least favorite day of the week, and many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
