Last Minute Christmas

I have been a very lucky woman this holiday. I have been surrounded by friends, filled with holiday warmth, and the recipient of some amazing gifts. However, I am scrambling like everyone else to fill out my list. I have some ideas….

Last Minute Christmas

Shiryu Musashi passed this over today—a limited edition of his Tender Blossoms dress—this time in the Winter Night version. The interesting thing about this is that it will only be offered tonight, starting at midnight and ending at 6 am. He will sell them til he sells 200 and then it’s done. Amazingly, the dress is available for a mere 169L and it’s TRANSFERABLE. That means, for that low price, you can get yourself or your friend something that no one else on the grid will be wearing (except me… and my secret Santa recipients).

I am showing Elizabeth Tinsley’s exquisite earrings and ring, which are a seasonal offering. Random Calliope’s protege and butterfly launcher, Elizabeth carries on the tradition of tiny prim torture and placement with her lovely work. Additionally, shopping at her store gets you a bonus—if you buy the set for a friend, you get one for yourself. How can you beat that?

Get a gift card at Tuli or Truth and let your friend indulge in their goodies (since skins and hair are never transfer). In this case I show one of Truth’s newest offerings—Anise with a color-change band. And I wear Tuli Asturias’ beautiful skin from the For Your Lips Only line.

Finally, a nod to Bax Coen’s Prestige boots in suede with color changing menus. I love these. I put them on, select “Night” from the blue collection, and I am good to go. Somehow I think Shiryu made this dress to be worn with these boots. Or was it vice versa? Bax made the boots for the dress? Well, who cares? They fit.

I am running around the grid trying to shop for my loved ones for the holiday. I run into men looking at panels with quizzical looks in their faces (even without emoters), their edit beams going back and forth from one panel to the other, totally confused.

Well, Santa, Baby, what ladies want is something to make them feel pretty. And if she’s a lady like me, she wants to feel beautiful, and she wants only the best. And you want her to look sexy. I’ve got your answer!

Santa, Baby

LeeZu Baxter just came out with a set of lingerie that includes her own special touches. The lingerie is super sexy, but it also includes her signature artistic flourishes—this time in the manner of silver filigree slashed across the bodice. But the artistry is also in the myriad other details—the silk stockings wrinkled at the knee, the sheen of the satiny ribbons in the garters (one of them twisted, as if put on in haste), the sexy clips barely holding everything together, and the beautiful hand drawn lace along the bodice, stocking tops and panties. Gentlemen, buy your woman a piece of art!

I paired this with one of Lorac’s newest skins, only available at her new store at the Icon sim for a mere 10L. (Ten lindens for Pulse!!) For this small amount, you are getting the latest Lorac artistry from the new warmer Life line with a beautiful green shimmering eyeshadow, red holly lips and a dressy cat-eye liner.

And finally, some cute little slingbacks I got from London Dailey. These are the kind you can kick off quickly, which one would need to be able to do, wearing this outfit ;)
