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!

Suck it, Cupid! You’re a Heartbreaker

February is here and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Many romantic and V-Day inspired events and hunts will be going on. But what about events for those who don’t like this day of love and mushiness? If you’re one of these people, have no fear, Xtreme Designs is putting on an anti-valentines event called Suck it, Cupid! On February 13, there will be a day-long hunt with contributions from several designers and a party that starts at 6pm slt. Two of the designers have given me a sneak peek at their gifts for the hunt so I’m sharing pictures with you all.

Mishmash Fusion will be offering up this adorable top and jean set for ladies that reminds me of Grease with the midrif showing. It’s fun and casual with one sleeve slipping off the shoulder and a knot tied on one side. Emblazoned with the text “Suck it, Cupid!” on the front, you’ll be feeling perfectly rebellious. Men also get a gift as pictured here with the matching text on the shirt. Whether you’re single, partnered, or anything else, these outfits are just too cute to pass up.

Also for the Suck it, Cupid! Hunt, =EC Designs= has created a sassy lip sofa that is simply fabulous. It has both female and male single poses as well as a couple pose. I can easily see this sofa in a single lady’s home for exchanging witty remarks with guests.

Lastly, though it is not a gift for this hunt, the knit pillow on the floor is something I got recently that has a few different gender neutral poses. It’s from Raven’s Rookery which has an assortment of useful home items. Place a couple of these pillows in the yard for watching stars, relaxing in a hidden corner of your home, or for meditation circles.

That’s all for now but I will be posting again for Fi’s Hunts with this month’s Add Some Red Hunt and other Valentine’s Day inspired goodies I discover. Happy February. 🙂 ❤
