From the House that Built Me: More from the Cart Sale


Easter has recently passed and I can’t help thinking about all the ways we are shaped by the cultures we are raised in. Different parts of the world celebrate the same holiday in different ways and this changes how we express ourselves in what we wear, how we act, and more. In this post, I’m sharing different looks that appeal to varying tastes because they draw influences from different walks of life.

For my first look, my dress from Dark Water Designs is inspired by floras found in the eastern hemisphere. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and includes a HUD with four Asian floral designs. If you wear a mesh body and are a tad bustier, expect to wear the larger size. My wedges are also from Dark Water Designs and while the floral patterns on the HUD don’t quite match the dress pattern I’m wearing, they still look fun and cute together. Not a fan of floral? There’s a pair of Vintage Grunge Wedges set for sale at the Cart Sale too. Find these lovely pieces and more for 10L while you can.

In my second look, I’m wearing one of Anachron’s pieces from the Cart Sale. This beautiful chiton comes in a multitude of colors in standard mesh sizes. I did mod my shape to have smaller breasts to fit size M but the large would have worked as well. I really love how nicely this piece drapes over the body and the textures are beautiful. You’ll feel like a Greek princess or goddess in it.

For teatime with the girls, I went with a little dress from Lilbit Sass and a hat from NSP. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes, busty sizes, fitted mesh sizes, and fitted mesh sizes for the Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies. Not seen is the gorgeous strap design on the back. I had no issues with fit at all. The hat has an easy to use resize script which allows you to fit this lovely hat to any head and accommodate hair as well. Together these pieces give me an Audrey Hepburn vibe or some other high- fashion lady without feeling over-glamorous.

My last look is mostly just for fun. Rowena’s Designs has a cute dress and matching heels out for sale. The included HUD has a nice basic color selection to suit any girl’s mood. This dress has standard sizes, fitted sizes, and meshes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies too. If you’re headed to the club, you might find some fun tip jars like this Peeps Tipjar from Xtreme Designs. They have quite a few Easter or spring themed tip jars for sale at the Cart Sale. These peeps look so yummy I had a hard time not taking a bite of them! 😀 The background and floor textures in this photo are from Timeless Textures which has a nice selection of full perm textures up for grabs. I’m not normally someone who likes pink but the plaid was so cute I couldn’t resist.

Head to the Cart Sale at the Wash while you still can. More peeks at what’s at the Cart Sale can be seen here.  All items are only 10L, although merchants are allowed one 50L item. Take advantage of these deals while they last!

With the onset of spring rolling around, there’s lots of bright and happy dresses being pulled out of the closets and great sales going on. One of my favorite sales events is The Cart Sale @The Wash which offers all items for 10 lindens with the option of one item being 50L. Right now Spring Freshness is the theme of this round’s Cart Sale and there certainly is a lot of spring fever going on. I, for one, loved exploring the grittier side of the theme, which led me to get back onto my bike for a little ride around a new roleplay sim called Dark Edinburgh. Continue reading

A Bright Sunshiny Day Part 2

25747743911_6938fd88a4_o

I really do love the bursts of sunshine I’ve been seeing lately. A little bit of sunlight is an instant mood boost that brings out the inner kid in everyone and just..well..makes everything seem not so depressing. So, in the spirit of spring sunshine and fun, I’m sharing a couple other looks and a cool carousal from Fi’s Hunts’ The Chicken Egg Hunt which runs until the end of March. Details and links are below the blog credits.

First I’m sharing this darling little dress I got from ~*Moolala*~. It makes me think of Easter Sunday brunches or tea time with friends. While there are not fitted meshes for mesh bodies or fitted mesh, I was still able to use the standard mesh sizes on my Maitreya body without any trouble. I’m not usually a fan of pink, but this dress is just too fun to pass up.

My other outfit is a mix from two other hunt gifts. On top, I’m wearing the shirt from Country Couture’s complete outfit. The outfit includes rigged mesh, fit mesh, and fitted meshes for Maitreya, Belleza, and the Slink bodies for the shirt and jeans and a pair of boots. Seen here is only the top from the outfit. A cute chick printed on the top makes for a fun casual top for any day. The pants are the gift from {D.o.R.K} and come with a HUD that has 8 different texture options. Blue and pink are the base texture options; the variation is in the eggs all over the pants in different patterns. This was a very fun and playful design, so good job {D.o.R.K}!

Lastly, the egg/chicken/hay thing I’m sitting on in various pictures are from =EC Designs=’s Carousal. This ingenious design harks back to that age old question: Which came first? The Chicken or the Egg? We may never know but you can certainly have fun going in circles while you ponder this question. Sit on a chicken or in an egg or in the hay on the carousal’s center and cuddle with someone. All animations are PG appropriate and cuddles are just sweet and tender. ❤

That’s all for now. Find these goodies and more while you still can. Best wishes for all starting their Spring Break. See you next time. 🙂

A Bright Sunshiny Day with the Chicken Egg Hunt

bright-sunshiny-day_25411429270_o

If you’re like me, you’re looking out your window and hoping to see a bit of sunshine. Are you ready for spring? I know I am. Easter is a bit early this year, inspiring visions of spring, and you can see its effects everywhere. Fi’s Hunts has a hunt going on this month called The Chicken Egg Hunt and it will continue from now until the end of the month. So I’m hopping right into some sneak peeks of goodies to share with you all!

GET FROCKED is offering an adorable blue dress for The Chicken Egg Hunt. The blue is light and soft like a clear sky. Looking closer, you’ll see the dress is covered in little prints of baby chicks. What could feel more spring-like than baby chicks? Standard fitted mesh sizes are included along with fitted meshes for the Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies.

Looking to do some gardening? Simply Shelby is offering a sweet garden patch with little flowers and freshly hatched chicks. Rocks border the edges to keep things neat and tidy. This cute patch would look darling along the front of any home.

As a nice accent to any garden or just a cute decorative piece for your porch, {Sickly SWEET} designed some clay pots for this hunt. Flowers tumble out of them as they remind us that spring is on its way.

Happy Hunting and see you in the next post!
