Time For Shop and Hop

 Hiya everyone! Tonight it's finally time to take a peek at some of the many gifts awaiting all of us at the Holiday Shop & Hop 2023, with 16 regions filled with designers' displays that offer discounted sales items along with generous gifts. I'm focusing on the Chickory region's gifts tonight, simply because it is easiest for me to keep them sorted by region and do one at a time instead of trying to send you to a bunch of landmarks all at once ;) It took me a while just to get there this year with the start of Advent and all the usual monthly things, so I'm relieved to be able to share these wonderful presents that are meant to brighten our holidays. I definitely find myself more in the spirit of the season after visiting :)

Starting this evening off, we have 2 gifts from [Pixel Doll] - their Emilie Set 01 on the left, and Emilie Set 02 on the right. Both include the dress and panties to fit Legacy/Boobs/Perky, Maitreya, and Reborn/Juicy bodies, plus a matching hat with resize script on touch. The strapless dress is loosely tied in the front and on each hip, and the hat is like a old fashioned sleeping cap that drapes down with a poof at the tip. The gingerbread pattern on both is just precious, and looks great on both background colors :) 

For a real showstopper of a look to wear at a fancy seasonal gathering, be sure to visit the Moon Amore display and grab their free Santa's Helper Dress // GIFT. It is beautifully decorated with 3D ornaments just like a tree, with golden accents around our baubles ;) This extra full skirted dress comes in sizes for eBody, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies.

::{Sofia}:: is offering the gorgeous Sae-byeok Gown Dress, Cherry as its gift for the event, and I am immensely grateful for it. The cleverly styled gown has a single long sleeve to contrast with the bare left shoulder above the hip-high slit on the same side, in sizes for Freya, Kupra, Legacy, and Maitreya bodies. The gift also includes matching earrings, rings for each hand (not shown), and an accessory that is the lovely flower atop the leg slit's opening. That long flowing skirt looks so elegant satin, don't you think?

Tis the season for red, so I next combined two gifts for one red hot look! The top is our BONNICCI - Ivonne Top - Red treat, a delicious little strapless bra top with a lace ruffle in sizes for Legacy, Maitreya, and Reborn bodies. It pairs remarkably well with the (*<*) 1313 Natasha Leggings - Festive gift from 1313 Mockingbird Lane. These snug leggings are slit from waistband to ankle with sheer golden lace in between, to match the gold polka dots just right :) This gift is provided in eBody Reborn, Kupra, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh body sizing. 

Our final look of the evening is the beautiful AlaFolie - RED LILY gift. The wonderful dress has long sheer sleeves, sweetheart neckline, and frilly skirt that comes almost to the knee for a fairly modest (at least by SL standards) appearance that I find quite endearing. It comes in Legacy, Perky, Maitreya, Petite, Prima Busty, and Prima Petite sizes, with panties that resemble bloomers in the same sizes. There is also a system/BOM layer "culotte rouge" which is a pair of red bikini panties that you can wear instead of or with the mesh panties. As always in SL, it is all up to you how you choose to wear your new outfit :) 

I had a busy but enjoyable day, and dinner at my parents' was pretty nice. I had to laugh when I mentioned that my haircut appointment was Tuesday, and they both went, "you got your hair cut??" with looks of blank confusion. I got like 6 inches lopped off, LOL, it's not like I got a half inch trim and then got mad (I was not upset at all) that nobody noticed. There are countless memes that could explain how all of us felt. There was a brief discussion of holiday plans, and we decided on a single batch of crab cakes rather than double for Xmas Eve, and I just have to keep my fingers crossed that it's enough. I hope you all have a delightful weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
