You may have seen the "burlesque" freebie peacock outfit blogged. As soon as collected it I was impressed with the softness and detail of the feathers and it struck me that it would go sumptuously with a group gift from Evie's Closet a while back, the Forest dress. I just used the "derriere" and head feathers from the burlesque costume, adjusting them a little upwards in the case of the back ones and downwards in the case of the head dress (to frame my face more).
I am using all the pieces of the Forest dress. It took me a while to find a necklace - it needed to be something fairly bold and elaborate and in the end I thought this Shiny Things "Wood Elf" necklace fitted the bill. It is actually on the shirt level, rather than made of prims. It is one of the excellent Shiny Things freebies at the Gnubie store. The other jewelry and shoes were all group or advent gifts but should be available as priced items now.

Black and red seem to be my favourite colours. I am blogging the second of my purchases in the Icing sale: Curlicue. I am just wearing the skirt and glitch pants (there's also a cream blouse): the skirt has a net overskirt with dark embroidery, and a silken underskirt. Just lovely, and sets the tone for a delicate, elegant look.
I am wearing the skirt with a vintage silk shirt that I picked up, soon after I rezzed, for about 40 Londen and one the Pixeldolls belts that was given out as a Group gift. I think it won't be in notices any longer, but they are for sale in the store. The same goes for the jewelry (well, it was an advent gift)
The red bag was a Valentine's group gift (as in my last post) and there are lots of other nice colours in the shop. I got the shoes as a Valentine's freebie too - the white diamond version of these are free in the Tres Beau shop.
BTW, while I was checking that the Zoe hair was still a dollarbie at Frangipani (it is), I saw they have 2 more dollarbie styles - Kylie and Kira - available in all colours.

I bought a couple of good-value items in the Icing sale a while back and hadn't blogged them yet. The top and leggings are the Icing "Confetti" outfit: it was L$100 when it was half price. Some of the other things were Valentine freebies: the hair, bag, bangles and choker. Both the shoes and the bangles are colour change: a good wide range of colours for the shoes. The glasses are dollarbies from Oasis, and there are several colours on offer. I got the hat there too, at L$30, for when the sun just gets too strong.

I've tried not to chase all the Valentine freebies, but am wearing a few here: namely jacket top and sunglasses from the La Reina hunt and a quiverful of pretty pink arrrows from 'Ookami Ningen. The skirt was bought a while ago and picks up the aubergine hue. Other items were dollarbies or freebies at the time - which was only a week or so ago ;-)
The pictures were taken in the Pillow Talk shop which is up in the clouds (you can buy clouds there, too, and that little blue bird)

I wasn't going to blog again today - but this is so cute! Grandma! has moved to a new shop which is fitted out as a bookshop, with the clothes hung around by the shelves. There is a wonderfully cute freebie: an apron, a pink feather duster for dusting books, and a pile of books. Top of the pile is a Haruki Murakami book, one of my favourite authors ;-)
All the other clothes are as in my previous post. Grandma!'s new location is in Broadmead (104,135,34)
I wanted to work out another outfit for my favourite Virginie trousers. I tried it with a couple of gold-coloured tops and this was what I liked best: the shirt part of the Love Cupcakes dress that I got as a freebie at their shop a while ago. I added a triple necklace that was an advent gift from Second Mirage and also a nice watch with a gold face and caramel strap that was part of a Muse gift set. This set used to be free in a CSI NY sim, but I had a fly round what is left of the CSI sims and it looks like the freebie fashion items aren't there any more ;-(
I was also going to use the Digit Darkes gold freebie shoes yet again, but as you may have noticed there have been inventory problems in SL and I found that the folder for these shoes was mysteriously empty. Then when I went and got another pair, they refused to rez into my inventory. So I'm afraid I gave up and treated myself to a pair of not-at-all-free gold boots from Fuel.
