Look Of The Day

I know that usually I prefer to blog freebies or cheapies but today I thought I'd share my Look Of The Day. After a nice, long discussion with the "Second Life Fails and Fugs" crew on the merits of proper neko tails I decided to dress up as my neko fae and see if it's Fug or not!

So Saff has gone strawberry blonde instead of full blown ginger with cute white, pierced kitty ears and a nice swishy white tail. I made sure to remove my fae cum-elf ears to avoid THAT fug of having 4 ears!

Also, the pig is called Praze, she used to have a nice warm bed at my old house but now unfortunately she only comes out when I have to carry her and she IS getting fat!

Hair & Ears @ Cri Cri

Skin @ InSanity (can't locate the store)
Tail @ How Vexing (184L) comes in two types, sleek and persian with editable size and "swish"

A Long Awkward Pose in Wonderland

I had a lovely surprise when I logged onto SL this afternoon. Dove Love of Long Awkward Pose had sent me her blogger pack of poses (yay!) she has a special deal in her shop that if you are a blogger and credit her poses in your blog you can get her blog pose set for free!

So I thought "well, I can show them off with my new outfit on my blog!"
Here are a few of the poses which show off everything beautiful that I got my hands on today!

I dressed myself all up for winter and tried to hunt for an atumnal/wintery sim yet ended up stumbling across alirum which is quite possibly one of the most photogenic sims I've ever been to and it is just GORGEOUS! so I decided that mid-autumn Saff just fell into wonderland! Oh for it to be like this all year round!

I also thought I'd take the opportunity to showcase some new eyes I was kindly given by Rosemarie Indigo, she's opened a new store on the same sim that Evie's Closet is on and her eyes are all wonderful and reasonably priced so they don't break the bank. Banana Banshee eyes are a must and so intricately made. I'm wearing Venus in Cotton Candy. (At Banana Banshee's other store at Golden Lotus there are cheapie eyes and a lucky board!)
Though non-bloggers have to pay full price for these poses LAP does have much more fantastic pose sets for really good prices. I own a LOAD of poses from LAP and they are just so perfect!

Raiding Evie's Closet

One of the best in character dressmakers on the grid is by far Evangeline Miles of Evie's Closet. I have endless dresses from her shop and was extatic to find out she had a Midnight Mania in the discount section of her store. It has a low hit count so it's best slapped early! All I can do now is leave the pictures to do the talking, I really hope I did the dress justice, it's just beautiful!

Hair @ Magika (125L)
Skin @ Tuli


PS Rosie Indigo has a new store on the same location as Evie's Closet so I'll be blogged her beautiful eyes soon!

Dancing on the wings of an angel

Background: I wanted... no NEEDED a new dress! Unfortunately I wanted something fae, and something fae and appropriate is slightly hard to come by. I found this dress for free at Angelwings, a personal favourite of mine for silks that aren't appropriate

Thankfully I found out that this freebie has a "modesty layer" though I still doubt it's appropriate for Avilion *giggles*

I just love how the skirt layer flows and the shoulder decor hangs so perfectly.

The jewellery comes with the outfit also and can you see the beautiful flower decollage on the breast? gawwww-jussss!

The Wash!

The Wash - I first came across this sim a few years ago and I bought some gorgeously sexy leaf silks. I didn't realise that this was a biannual event so I was very happy to find it again!!
All items at The Wash are 10L, it's a massive sim so for the dresses I've directly linked the LM to the item for you :)

Dress @ Sn@tch (10l)

Dress @ Sleeping Koala (10l)

Dress @ Hell Bop (10l)
I love this dress and it does come with puff sleeves but unfortunately they weren't rezzing for me

The skin used in all shots is from Heartsick and I grabbed from the lucky board while trying and failing to find their twisted hunt item!

Make up (shown in image one) @ Huit (past freebie)
Hair @ Truth (Riley in Burgandy - 250l i think)

Welly Boots!

Welly Boots, Wellingtons, Galoshes, whatever you call them they're perfect for this time of year. The end of summer is that kind of "mid-season" where it's till warm but the weather is perfectly crap. I found these lovely Wellys at Duh! as usual at a lovely cheap price and teamed it with my nice summer gear before it gets relegated to the back of my wardrobe!

Boots @ Duh! (40L)
Umbrella (colour change) @ Cartoon Kids (0L)
Dress @ Salire (group gift - join group and there are loads of great group gifts)

"New Release"

There is quite possibly nothing I HATE more than flicking on to Freebie blogs and falling in love with a beautiful skin/hair/outfit and then scrolling down to find that underneath it is described as a new release.
New Releases are NOT freebies/dollarbies but advertisements and I swore when I started fashion blogging on Saffron's Place that I would never succumb to advertising a new release....

Until now! Though I have a fantastic excuse: 1. someone bought an item from my Marketplace Store (Bubica Designs - Poses) and 2. The new release is from Duh!

Duh! Sells the most beautiful shoes at ridiculously low prices, I rarely go anywhere else to get shoes!

Shoes @ Duh! (25L) - NOTE new location
Dress @ Sakide (free hunt gift - admire the blue crow is the hint)
Skin @ Mamboo Chic (luckyboard)
Hair @ [e] (free)
Socks @ LaVierre (previous opening gift)
