Fifty Linden New Release at Domicile

As charming as Shabby Chic decor is, there’s something just a bit demoralizing about facing a white world inside and out, so when the snow starts to fly I’m drawn irresistibly to warm, sunny earth tones purely for their comfort factor.  Domicile‘s newest skybox release, the Autumn, is in these shades of gold, orange and rich brown and is every bit as comforting as a cup of hot chocolate and a slice of pumpkin pie on a winter’s evening.

Only 219 prims furnished, the 30×20 skybox has several seating areas with chairs and sofas that contain some of the most charming sit animations I’ve seen, including one with a book reading animation that cleverly dispenses a book to you for those long winter afternoons.  There’s a fireplace, a bedroom (including a bed with sleep animations), and a picture window with curtains that open and close, as well as some really lovely artwork.  If warm and cozy is on your agenda, go give the rezzed copy of the Autumn Skybox up at Domicile a looky-see.  The TP pad to the display skybox is right next to the Lucky Chair in the main store.

Now here’s the sweetest part!  The Autumn Skybox will be on sale for L$50 this Saturday, November 27th, for 24 hours only, from noon SLT Saturday to noon SLT Sunday, when it returns to its normal price of L$500.  Bargain!

And check out all the other great bargains while you’re there.  Like the Christmas Garlanded Fireplace with lights and tree for only L$25.  Or the always useful L$35 Crackhouse….

The Autumn is the first skybox, I’m told, in the Four Season series that designer Skell Dagger is planning.  I can only say, for my part, that I can hardly wait for Spring.

Nothing Left to Prove: Now that’s Fashion

 


Chantkare’s fall line hit the marketplace this week, and it’s the strongest yet–filled with fresh, imaginative clothing, marvelous textures and skillfully constructed scupties. On a grid where…

….nothing left to prove: Very Classy

When Tres Beau’s White Linen dress floated to the top of my consciousness earlier this summer, I thought to myself, “That could work…”  It’s obviously a sophisticated look with great style…but I never expected it to drip sex like it does.  Sex and class! That’s a tough combo to pull off, but the high popped collar, the deeply plunging neckline, the smoking hot slit to the waist all conspire with a *perfectly* made flexi-skirt and righteous textures to make a one of a kind dress.  And the linen never wrinkles!  Yes!

And praise the lord, it moves!  I’ve gotten a bit of a bee in my bonnet over time about clothing that you can’t move in without body bits poking out in all sorts of strange places.  It’s getting better as skills improve, but there’s a lot of it around still, even from the grid’s best designers…not this one though!  You can breakdance in this sucker if you want.  I know.  I have. And it moves beautifully!



Boon has slowly but certainly become one of my favorite hairs on the grid, combining fresh, innovative styles with impeccable technical skills. There are a lot of hair designers out there making off the wall styles, but who lack the technical skills to really pull it off. There are technical masters as well on the grid who choose to make the same hair over and over again, seemingly never drawn to explore the possibilities. Boon is fascinating in that they’ve found a way to go out on a limb, but not fall out of the tree.  I *like* that.

LeLutka.  Ah, who but LeLutka could make a skin that could hold its own here? It’s Lola, of course, but you knew that. Lola the ubiquitous, and she turns up here ‘coz I can’t seem to take her off no matter how hard I try. Well, that, and she was clearly born to wear this dress.

In the background is NOTsoBAD’s Maria Hacienda–so joyful, so marvelously designed and with such exquisite textures that my heart began to thump madly when I first saw it, so much so it necessitated my darling Jonathan drag me out by the hair screaming lest I add it to our already burgeoning collection of houses. Have no doubts though, I’ll sneak it onto the sim sooner or later…

…nothing left to prove: Military Chic

Well, it happens sooner or later to every fashionista —one day you look up and suddenly realize you already own everything on the grid.

O! the humanity!

[Aebleskiver Thibedeau reels back against the wall stunned and clings to the draperies for support.]

Times like these call for one thing: Mashups from the Inventory!

Milk Motion’s My Admiral military jacket was among the first in this popular trend, and remains to my mind the best of the lot. Hey! the cut, the detail work, the sculpties…the lining, for God’s sake! It languished too long in my inventory, largely because I first mashed it up with some low rise jeans and boots in a wicked casual look…but I’m not so much of a jeans girl any more, and so when I pulled it out again, I decided to push it the other way.

That meant Coco’s Balloon Pants.  Now, I admit that when I first saw Coco’s Balloon Pants all I could think was “where would I *ever* wear those?”. Slowly but surely, though,  I find them gracing almost every outfit I put together.  Why?  How can you deny that fabulous silhouette?  the layering of those sophisticated textures? those cunning little gold buttons! Sublime!

Riches like these demand Stiletto Moodys Gold.  Now, I’m not a foot fetishist (no, really!), but if I were, Stiletto Moody’s Gold Bare Laurens are where I’d start licking, with their gleaming satin ankle ribbons and peerless gold textures.  Perfect!

Megg Demina’s Chapeau Tres Mignon has long been the source of fabulous hats on the grid.  Here The Napoleonic Military Hat “The Navy”, a charming  little tricorn with gold braid and flowers, finishes off the look with panache. It’s an undeniable fact that the world needs more hats, and I, for one, am always glad to see them appear on the market. More hats, please, creators!

And now it gets embarrassing, because the lovely corset that completes this look is from paper.dolls, but from where or how it came to me, or if it’s even still available, I honestly cannot tell you.  Ah well…such is life!

I salute the creators of these marvelous things, which make all it so easy!
