Two tops to start the evening, on the left you see the evani. ANITA sweater [GIFT] found on the Gilded sim. It comes in a Maitreya rigged size and includes a HUD that lets you tint and show/hide the lace trim as well as turn the alpha mask off and on. On the right I am sporting the Rebel Gal gift called Fluffy Fox Sweater - Print 3. This comfy top is provided in Freya, Isis, and Maitreya sizes, with trees and flowers (poinsettias?) knit into its pattern. With both of these I am wearing the same Delizio jeans in white that I wore yesterday, a marketplace gift with plenty of colors in system layers, Maitreya and Omega appliers.
Don't let the chilly weather make you bundle up if you have a party or event to attend this season; instead slip into this gorgeous gift from Dead Dollz and create some heat! Their flirty Bebe Dress - Petroleum is sized for the Maitreya body and has an asymmetrical hem with slit on the right thigh, deep neckline and straps down and across the back. The gems you see dusted across it can be adjusted with the included HUD which offers 4 colors and some other settings you can experiment with.
This versatile look is our gift from Candy Kitten called Forever Yours, a single piece with fun layered appearance. It comes in Freya, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh body sizes, with a HUD offering 6 patterns for the dress, 5 color choices for the laces, 5 for the bra, 2 for the lace on the bra, and 2 for the trim. The best thing to do is start clicking until you come up with a combo you enjoy, then adjust as needed ;) Okay, I confess that is what I did.
RAMA went all out this season with their gift for us, their Seymour Sequin Dress FATPACK. It consists of Maitreya and Slink Physique sizes each in 14 different mainly gem-themed colors, an impressive array to be sure. They are champagne (seen on the right above), diamond, emerald, gold, jade, jet, onyx, peridot (left), rose quartz, ruby, sapphire, silver, tanzanite, and topaz. Whew! It reminded me of a friend who dated her now-husband for 7 years before they married, and for every occasion he bought her jewelry with a different gemstone so she had a wild collection of earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets, I think even an anklet or two. He finished with the diamond engagement ring. Just think, in SL we can accomplish all that with a HUD, hehe.
Speaking of the versatility of HUDs, this fantastic set is the Pretty Deceased gift called Scherry Outfit. It is comprised of the fur, thong, bra in 3 patterns, and skirt in the same 3 patterns (foxy, snowy, and tartan) each in Maitreya and Legacy sizes. The HUDs are so impressive, each with plenty of features...the fur HUD has 6 color choices for the pearls and you can adjust the glow, while the thong HUD (labeled top HUD) has 6 colors to choose from. The skirt's HUD has 5 sizes and 5 colors for the puff dangling from the chain belt, 9 tag quotes plus on/off for the tag, an on/off for each of the 2 chains (labeled A and B) and 6 chain metals for each individually. Get creative and have fun with this one, these HUDs will let you customize this look to suit your personal tastes.
I am still emotionally overwhelmed from the hockey game I watched, not just because we won but because so much was done to honor and support our player who is facing a cancer battle. It was our first home game since his diagnosis, so his fans got to show him how much we care and are behind him. My favorite player was back from his concussion and helped lift the team's spirits, as he is an energetic playmaker, and it just felt good to see them looking out for each other. Meanwhile I am working on plans for the next week or so, and it is a challenge but will be worth the effort. How does the time fly by so quickly this time of year? Please take time whenever you can to indulge in some self-care, remember you can't help anyone else have a good time if you are overly stressed. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
