Free silks and gifts, discounts... oh and a new collection at Shack

It's a great day to visit Shack... The new Autumn-Winter collection is unveiled, sand selected items from the new season range are available from the special vendors near the landing point for 20% off.

There are scheduled fashion shows (wait till you see the new Isis Moon silk - in both kajira and kajirus versions), and Shack designer Firefox is really spoiling everyone with male and female gift sets.

Here are the great outfits you can find in the female gift package.

Bargain silks at the 25L Fall Fete

I don't know about you, but for me Tuesdays are one of the most exciting days of the week :P

That's when the 25L Tuesday list comes out, and there's lots of bargain-tastic silks and other goodies to be had.

Well, this week, you're really spoiled because the organisers have created the 25L Fall Fete - a sim containing 44 merchants who participate in the 25L list.

The merchants all have tent stalls at the sim with some special 25L offers on display. Not everything available is 25L, so check before you buy if you need to stick to a budget!

Here's a quick look at three of them.

Kirina's Creations - new MM prize Persian Princess rainbow silks

Kirina's Creations have just put out a new MM prize, and it's one of their lovely Persian Princess silk range.

35L Sunday at Arachne Silks II

This week's offer 35L Sunday offer at Arachne is Enticement - a lovely full-skirted silk with ombre-effect colours and gold print detail.

Caverna Obscura - brand new Shahrazad outfit / silks

Caverna Obscura have just released a great new fantasy outfit, which can be worn for Arabian roleplay, or as silks for fairies and bellydancers.

It's called Shahrazad, after the heroic storytelling queen of the 1,001 Nights.

30L Saturday at Rustic Edge

It's a special 30L Saturday this weekend - it runs for the whole weekend, so plenty of time to grab a bargain.

Rustic Edge have really gone to town and put out some luscious silks, and more.

These are the Posie silks in Sunshine, also available in black as part of the 30L sale.

Shack - brand new Coin silks

These opulent Coin Girl silks are the latest release from Shack.

Thursday, 22 September 2011

Una - Vera silks

These are the Vera silks from Una. They're fresh and colourful and super-fun!

Rag Dollz - Desert Nights outfit

Rag Dollz is a fun place to shop. It's packed to the rafters with steampunk, pirate, Victorian, and medieval goodies, plus there are some alluring outfits for a dancing girl's wardrobe.

The Desert Nights bellydance outfit in blue was on offer today for 89L (usually 199L), so naturally I couldn't resist.

Quickie - free kirtle/camisk from Red Hot Ginger!

A very quick post - here is the free gift from Red Hot Ginger that I mentioned earlier.

You can grab it at the Red Hot Ginger store.


Best. Gift. Ever.

Ok, this post might be showing off a bit, but I really lucked out when FallnAngel Creations decided to name a dress after me.

(This was not in recognition of any special talent, unless it was a tribute to my shopping abilities! Rather, they always name new creations after a group member.)

Apart from the excitement of 'immortalisation' in dress form, I was gifted the fatpack (or 'angel pack' as they're known at Falln) of the dress.

But even one colourway of this dress gives you so many options to play with.

Red Hot Ginger - Posey plum silks

A little over a month ago, I found myself at the Red Hot Ginger store, just as Ginger (aka Phedre Moriarty) was rebuilding.

Then, there weren't a lot of designs on display (definitely more out now, be sure to have a look) but a few things still spoke to me, including these Posey silks.

Una - recent release Altea silks

Just a very quick look at a recent release from Una, as I'm under pressure for time tonight!

These are the Altea silks, inspired by the new movie of Conan the Barbarian (if I remember rightly).

Siryelle's Dreams - Silky Laetitia red outfit

Siryelle Yalin may be best known for her amazing furniture range, Tempura Decors, but her fashion line Siryelle's Dreams is going from strength to strength.

Although she's not strictly speaking a silks designer, she has made some outfits that dancing girls would feel perfectly at home in.

One of these is the glamorous Silky Laetitia outfit.

Marbella Pronovost isn't paying me, I swear

Yet another Soedara post.... There's just been a new release in the Indah line, giving you even more options to play with your outfits.

This time, it's a skirt option, designed for *cough* easy access.

The picture's a bit naughty, so I'll let you look for yourself on the Second Life marketplace.

Soedara - Indah silks 2 pink

More Soedara! I'll admit it - I'm a total fangirl.

The Indah silks come in a range of colours - the latest addition is a desperately desirable black - but the pink stands out as a choice for days when you're feeling a little bit sweeter, and you're not afraid to show your softer side.

The silks move beautifully (I love how the designer makes them quite long) and are accented with gold chains and delicate pearls. I feel like Venus emerging from the ocean here!

35L Sunday at Arachne Silks

Yay! I love sales!

Arachne Silks are now taking part in the 35L Sunday sales, so until midnight Sunday, you can get your hands on the Caffeine silks for a really low price - each colour is only 35L.

See you there!

Heartstones Silks - Moonstone silks

I don't know much about Heartstones Silks, but I came upon their main store in GMI Roazhon recently.

Usually, I don't wear a lot of white but the Moonstone silks caught my eye.

Warning: they're a tad skimpy!

Delicious - Samsara silks

Remember I posted about the Gorean Room? Well, I ran down there myself and grabbed some nice things at great prices.

Delicious, another silks range I return to again and again, have released a special edition of their yummy Samsara silks, this time in a beautiful cyan colour.

The name 'Samsara' suggests sophistication and elegance, influences from the Far East, a hint of sari styling perhaps. It's a look for the girl possessed of serenity and wisdom as well as passion.

And it's only 70L!

SALE! Nadi's Notions (adult rated sim)

Hmmm, this was meant to be a silks blog, seems it's turning into a sales blog ;)

Nadi's Notions have just launched a sales wall, with silks for 75L.

Enslaved - Star of Asia scarlet silks

Asia Jaerls at Enslaved is one of my favourite silks designers. Her designs usually feature sumptuous textures and beautifully-worked ornamentation.

The Star of Asia silks, including an array of gold jewelry, are certainly no exception.

SALE! The Gorean Room

Tired of teleporting all over the grid to track down some deals? Well, good news :)

The Gorean Room has just opened, and is host to offers from some of SL's most intriguing Gorean designers, including Soedara, Delicious, Una, Luas and Sweet Kajira.

Best of all, everything is 50 - 70L, and items change every 15 days.

As the official notecard says:

FREE! at Vita's Boudoir

 This darling little 'Silver Glow' dress is now available as a free gift from Vita's Boudoir:

 Isn't it cuuuuute?!

Chaospire Venusian

Well, what can I say that hasn't already been said? Everybody loves Chaospire, and everybody loves Venusian!

Gone but not forgotten: Spellbound

It seems a lot of silks designers have been shutting up shop lately. It's always sad to an SL business close - unless, of course, the creator has moved on to bigger and better things, or simply changed direction.

The only bright side to the closure of a well-loved store is the possibility of a closing sale, allowing you to stock up treasures to pull out of your closet for months to come.

It was in one such nostalgic mood that I tried on this beautiful camisk from Kendall Dagger's Spellbound.

Una - Ainara Urt outfit

One thing I can't resist is a sale. After posting about Una's sale last night, I wandered down to grab some choice pieces for myself.

First up is the Ainara Urt outfit in purple, reduced to 99L.

The boots are so cute!

Second Moon- Mirror Cage mix'n'match

I had the great pleasure of speaking to MoonRiver Darcy at the 1,001 Nights exhibition... Many of you will know MoonRiver as the designer of the truly covetable Second Moon range.

If you know Second Moon silks, you'll know that Ms Darcy often creates a whole range of outfits featuring the same design - for instance the beautiful Crimson Moon series.

When I expressed an interest in 'megapacks' of these ranges, she pointed me in the direction of the Mirror Cage set, which does come in a 'mix'n'match' pack. Naturally, I couldn't resist...

SALE! Una (formerly of Una and Luas)

Una Daxter is having a clearance sale!

Photo exhibition - Morgana Nagorski's 1001 Nights

If you 're interested in silks, orientalist art, interiors or Second Life photography, this new exhibition is a rare treat.

Morgana's exhibition focuses on life in the harems of the Ottoman empire.

Or in the words of the artist, "my new exhibition ~ 1001 Nights is a glimpse into the seductive, sensual, sumptuous world of the seraglio, as depicted in the Orientalist paintings which inspired this series".

The White Armory - Outer Limits gown

Wow. I saw this brand new release at The White Armory and HAD to have it.

It's stunning, it's amazing... and I'm going to need a thesaurus to find enough superlatives for Bee's creations!

I just can't decide which photo I like like best...

Saturday, 10 September 2011

Tian Xia Hui - MengLi Chinese outfit

Something a little bit different today; I'd love to call this a wuxia outfit, but as the creator doesn't seem to, then perhaps I shouldn't either!

I found this colourful outfit in the 60L weekend list. The store is new to me, but I have a feeling I'll be back...

Black mood at Shack II - Delight silks

The stunning 'Delight' silks are another recent Shack release, currently on the group discount vendor.

I'm not sure if they actually *have* a PG version... so let's start with some careful cropping.

 As you can see, they're beautifully detailed. 

If maybe a tad bare. (As if that would ever put you off!)

Black mood at Shack I - Damley silks

At long last, it's Friday!

Of course, this now means it's group discount day at Shack... as if you needed another reason to go shopping.

Maybe it's my mood, but walked away with two sets of black silks...

This is the first - Damley, which offers dazzling glamour and formal elegance.

Adult version after the jump!

Soedara - brand new Dancer of Glorious Ar silks

Marbella seems to be on a roll! There's a bunch of new stuff over at Soedara, but what caught my eye were these lovely Dancer of Glorious Ar silks.

There are two colour themes in the range, one is the 'fairy' theme, featuring graduated colours and glows, while the other consists of 'traditional' coloured silks.

The 'Fairy Dream' blue silks are dazzling:

Arachne - seriously sultry Captured silks

Inspired by a conversation about fishnet stockings, I rummaged around in my closet and re-discovered this hot little number - the Arachne Captured silks (or camisk?)

Tuesday, 6 September 2011

SALE! Silks, camisks and panther gear at Dina's

I don't know anything about it, but Dina's have 75% off a bunch of stuff at the moment.

Bargain time! Winter Moon dollarbie silks

I was shopping my closet the other day and came across the intriguingly named 'Winter Moon' silks, so I set up a white-themed shoot.

Angelwing - lucky chair prize Adorabelle silks

The Adorabelle silks in blue were exclusive to the hunt, but now they're on the Angelwing lucky chairs. Yay!

I had some fun with them at The Fairy Crossing:

Don't stand so close to the fire, little fairy! You'll singe your wings!

The Shack - Victoria silks

Aargh! I can't have been getting new notices from Shack, because this new arrival came upon me as a complete surprise.

I was down in their silks store to grab an SLURL for you (the trouble I go to!) and this little stunner caught my eye:
Meet Victoria. She's a bit of a vixen.

Evie's Closet gown special - this weekend only!

Eeek! Just spotted this on the marketplace - a gorgeous red gown from Evie's for 85L.

The white version of the gown is currently listed at 575L.

Hurry though, you've only a few hours left to grab it!

Find it on the marketplace.

Freebies for newbies: Evie's Closet

The seasons change, time passes, and brings us many regrets... and just one is that as an avatar over 30 days old, I can no longer avail of the fab gift for newbies at Evie's Closet!

Hopefully this post might be useful in alerting someone, because this is one deluxe package, starting with the green faery silks.

The Shack - Wild Orchid silks

Let's give it up for Firefox Fonda and The Shack.

Not content with 'just' designing and producing some of the finest silks and gowns in SL, they also feel the feed the need to give tons of it away on the infamous Shack lucky boards.

Countless hours have been spent there, with a gaggle of girls slapping those boards rightly silly.

Here's an outfit I recently *bought* at Shack (they sell things too!) - the Wild Orchid silks in lagoon.

As usual with Shack, there's lots of different ways to wear these silks and there's 8 pieces included in total. Isn't it bee-yoo-tiful?

Lucky chair at Soedara

Soedara have just put out a lucky chair, so if you don't know their fab stuff, maybe you'll get a chance to try it for free!

I popped over twice this morning (once to check out the chair, then to grab the SLURL for you) and won the Indah top in pink and Oriental marble earrings in green. (Don't you just love wildcard rounds?)

What are you waiting for? Get down there!

The White Armory - Sultan's Queen gown set

If this isn't my absolute favourite outfit in SL, then it's pretty damn close. In my opinion, Bee Dumpling of The White Armory make the best gowns to be had.

Sultan's Queen is an amazingly detailed and versatile outfit, perfect for desert RP. It can be worn as a gown with train...

Arachne Silks - Aurora

I shudder to think how many silks from Arachne I own.

The 75L specials, the build-your-own-fatpack offer, the store credit... combined with the sheer beauty and inventiveness of the silks, it's impossible to say no.

Here's one cute little silk I picked up when it was on offer:

FREE! at Angelwing: Ethereal Dance silks

I stumbled across these at Resas Freebie Corner (nb blog is auf Deutsch):

She's styled up a gorgeous look too, for a grand total of... 0L.

If you'll excuse me, I have some teleporting to do!

Soedara - Exotic Sang Penari red silks

Soedara might just be my favourite new silks store. In fact, I just can't go there without getting a bad case of the ME WANTS.


Well, Marbella Pronovost, Soedara owner and designer, creates some of the most distinctive pieces out there.

Her designs are based around beautiful gems and jewels, but she's no slouch when it comes to a stunning texture or two, as latest creation Exotic Sang Penari shows.

SALE! Carrie's Lingerie

They're clearing out the closets at Carrie's Lingerie, and some soon to be discontinued items are available for 75% off.

Silks Midnight Mania at FallnAngel Creations

This month, the silks MM board at FallnAngel features the Anuradha set in aqua - mmmm...

These silks are a little bit steampunk, a little bit showgirl, and a whole lot of fun.


Hi, welcome to ~yet another~ silks blog!

Inspired by a comment from a friend,  this is a light-hearted attempt to keep track of my never-ending, ever expanding Second Life inventory.

I hope you enjoy, and please don't mind if the photography isn't the finest.

After all, my main talent is shopping!

(Also -  hunting for freebies. Don't worry, I'll tip you off on the good stuff!)
