Winter Shop and Hop

Hiya everyone! Tonight we visit the Winter Shop and Hop event, a 6 sim extravaganza brought to us by Linden Labs and featuring 120 designers. There are discounted items at every display, as well as free gifts for all visitors to treat ourselves while we shop for friends and family. Most of those are inside blue boxes with white lids and tied with ribbons, that you can just give a quick click to claim. I do think this season brings out the best in many people, so put on your lowest complexity body and outfit (think of the lag!) or just a full body alpha to be invisible, and head on over! All of tonight's gifts came from the Aurelian sim, as I find it best to focus on one sim at a time while sharing these with you.

First we see the gift from Eliavah which is their Amaranthine Blouse [Lunar 2k19]. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya mesh bodies, all with bare shoulders and delicate ruffles on every edge. The deep red color is highlighted by a golden floral pattern that is a fun choice for the season. I wore it with my Delizio jeans in white, which you can find on the marketplace for free as a fatpack of colors with system layers plus Omega and Maitreya appliers all included.

I love our gift from Neve, which is their festive '19 sweater and skirt. There are HUDs for each piece with 4 color choices, plus 4 metals on the skirt HUD for the rivets around the lacing. They fit Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, and manage to combine flirty with cozy for a big wintry thumbs up from me :)

This gorgeous dress could easily be the highlight of your holiday wardrobe if you are as drawn to the vivid color as I am. It is our gift from toksik called Mellow Dress (Fucshia), included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya. The dress has a deep V neckline and wrapped skirt with long sash down the left side, which I imagine would be soft and slightly ticklish. 

Next we see the versatile gift from -Pixicat- called Evening Dress (Festive). The dress and the fur each come in Freya, Hourglass, Physique, and Maitreya sizing, which means you can easily wear this dress with or without the fluffy trim to change up the look. Just think, Valentine's Day is less than 2 months away, so you could slip into the satiny dress without the fur, and add some jewelry with hearts or red gemstones. Practicality can be pretty!

You may have noticed my nails in these photos, well the good news is that they are also a Shop and Hop gift that you too can claim for your very own :) Just visit the alme. display and click their giftbox to receive these Mesh Stiletto Nails - XMAS19 Frosty. There are versions rigged for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink bento hands, along with a handy (no pun intended) HUD featuring 3 lengths and 5 polish choices. There is also an individual nail picker to let you tint all the nails at once or just choose certain ones, and I accidentally discovered that the sizing works on the selected nails too if you want to mix up the lengths. Please excuse the way my right index finger (the golden one) looks in this image, it is a combination of my hair and them both having transparency that is making it look like that nail is short or misshapen. I promise yours will be fine, just don't hold them up to your face like this I suppose ;) I really like the shiny chrome appearance of the various colors, and feel like the hues they chose remind me of Christmas lights or glass ornaments.

I will most likely be showing you gifts from another of the 6 sims tomorrow evening, after watching what might be a frustrating hockey game. Today I was mostly focused on holiday preparations and communicating with those involved, nothing too exciting but helpful so no complaints here. The weather here is chilly and rainy, but that will change to freezing rain and bad travel conditions in the morning. I am not planning on going anywhere until Thursday so I am safe, but plenty of people will have to be extra cautious. I hope you're all having a pleasant day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
