Christmas Wonderland

 Hiya everyone! Tonight I visited the Christmas Wonderland by ..:RR::.. which is a monthlong event with sales, low cost gifts, and even a hunt of sorts for small cylindrical giftboxes in green and red. I did not find very many of those, but there were plenty of free or $1L treats being offered by the generous designers. There are some other gifts of about $10L or less, so lots of affordable goodies for us to jazz up our winter wardrobes. To find some of the hunt prizes we are exploring the park portion of the event too, with amusement park type rides themed for winter and Christmas. I had a great time visiting, and since they have an Advent calendar here too I will be back quite frequently!

The colder weather is often referred to as sweater weather for good reason, so I was delighted to find this gift from Simply Foxie called Fringe Winter Sweater Gift With Hud for just $1L. It comes in sizes for Dragon, eBody, Fox, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies, with a 7 texture HUD. All of the texture options are lovely for the season, like the snowflakes on the left above or the wintry trees with fun animals to the right. The fringe automatically matches your choice really well, too, while revealing just a hint of belly towards the lower hem.

Another sweet sweater can be found at the ***LURE*** display, their *snow cheetah*-purple lurex. It is a free gift in sparkly purple knit, with an adorable cheetah image on the left side beneath the ruffled neckline. This gift includes eBody Reborn, Kupra, Kups, Legacy, Perky, and Maitreya sizes. The jeans I am wearing in this image and the previous one are a marketplace gift from Delizio that appear here fairly often, this time in black among their several color choices that are in system/BOM layers as well as Maitreya and Omega appliers.

I was going to say that this dress screams Christmas, but I think rather it sings it like a carol :) It is the {Le'La} Salleya Dress x-mas gift which is just $1L at the event, and it really is a flattering style with knit top and fluttery plaid mini skirt. It is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, with a HUD to choose from the 2 color combinations shown above. The plaids are noteworthy for being similar but not identical, and I really like the playful bow on the built in belt.

Black is a classic favorite color for SL fashions, so this .:LC:. Talisa Laced Mini Dress brings that familiarity but adds fresh touches like rose lace overlay and a different lace pattern at the hem. It comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes, and is just $1L. So stylish and affordable!

My final look of the night is a $1L gift from FAVOR, their Jacqueline Dress v4. It has a unique texture that made me think of dragon scales or snakeskin, and the shape is just as eye-catching with the gathered empire waist. The dress fits Altamura, eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Hourglass, Physique, Star, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Tonic Minim bodies (wow, that is a lot!) with a 12 color HUD for even more variety. That bright purple really called to me, but there are some lighter pastels among the many hues that you can pick from. 

This week is turning out to be a busy one, both in RL and SL. The annual Advent calendars started at midnight SL time for the most part, and I spent a couple of hours visiting stores and saving landmarks with my own notes (free group needed, no group needed, etc.) to prepare for a few Advent posts in the mornings eventually. That will not happen until Sunday at the earliest though, so for now I will direct you to the FabFree Advent listing and remind you to have as many group slots available as possible. Many of these need group tags to claim, and I know I had to do some group shuffling for the month. Tomorrow I have a podiatrist appointment that will leave me with sore toes but healthy, not ingrown nails, so it's worth the discomfort. My hockey watching this evening was even more painful, since we lost (again) and had a few injuries that will negatively impact the next game. I hope you're all having a pleasant day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
