Flashback to the ‘80s!

The latest offering from Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore is a reminder of the 1980s. Remember them? Puffy hair, and bangs? Above all, bangs!

The complete set of all 256 colors—including the hair and the bangs—can be yours for $1200L. Of course, if you’re smart enough to wear your A&A tag when you make your purchase, they can be yours for only $600L the set. Individual color sets sell for $250L. But there’s a deadline: be sure to buy them before Thursday night, April 9 to get the discount.

But wait! That’s not all! If you act now… Wait… Wrong special offer.

Bangs are available separately as well, 150 L per color pack or 960 L for the fatpack.

Here’s the ever-beautiful (and modest) me wearing the hair and bangs in red:

I’ve got something a little different for you this week. It’s time for the World Tour 2020 Grid-wide Treasure Hunt Event, sponsored by Kastle Rock Couture Management and which you can read all about here. So if it’s already explained on its own site, why am I promoting it here?

Because, my darlings, one of the prizes is furnished by my favorite hair vendor, Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore. The prize?

16 different colors, plus the bandana which comes in 10 colors as well. It also has a new texture,  which to my eyes make it seem almost as if it’s dreadlocks.

Aberdeen: A Unisex Style

It’s not every day that I get a male style to review,but when I tried it on I thought, “Why not? I’d definitely wear this style myself!”

A&A Aberdeen Hair Autumn Colors-pic

And there you have it: Aberdeen, the latest offering from Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore. Remember to wear your group tag and to buy it from the Action Wall, to get the group discount price of $125 for the 16 autumn colors.

Don’t like the autumn selection? Then move on to the variety color set for the same price:

It’s the same price. Notice the difference in the details of the styling? That’s because either set can be worn in one of four different ways. So really, you’re actually getting at total of 64 different style and color combinations in each set.

I doubt you’ll find that good a deal anywhere else in SL!

Audrey: Sheer Elegance

When Audrey Hepburn died, I said that the last trace of elegance had left Hollywood. However, Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore has brought that elegance back with a tribute to Ms. Hepburn entitled Audrey Hair.

Because I got my signals crossed, I’m posting this review and thee next one almost a week late, which means you won’t find them in the usual places in the store.

You can find Audrey on the first floor of updos, where all the updos are posted in alphabetic order. The complete set of all colors costs L$1200, with individual sets of 32 colors may be had for L$250 each.

Personally, I’m saving Audrey for special occasions, such as formal balls, of even while I’m sitting at home chillin’ on Netflix.

 

I Don’t Always Blog About Fashion

After all, I am a woman, with needs and desires of her own. And this is where I sometimes go to fulfill them.

Lesbian Teahouse

The Lesbian Teahouse is one such place. It’s always crowded, so it can take a long time for avi’s to fully rez, but it’s worth the wait. In fact, I once enjoyed a lovely relationship I had with someone I once met there. But that’s a story for another day.

Lesbian Loft

The Lesbian Loft is another spot I like to visit. Besides being a great place to meet other women, I’ve often had some very nice existential conversations there. See? It isn’t always about sex…just mostly.

And that brings us to the New Resident Help Area.

New Res Help

While this is primarily a place to learn about Second Life in general, it’s also another place to meet people. It’s in a G-rated sim, so you don’t have to worry about sex or drugs or rock ‘n roll. Well, maybe not the rock ‘n roll part. No swearing, either. It’s also where you can get many of your questions about the Firestorm Viewer answered.

Oh—not to mention the freebies! Be sure to grab the Garlic Necklace to ward off vampires! No, seriously! It will keep you from being approached by anyone playing the Bloodlines vampire simulation. Which I definitely do not play.

So that’s today’s update. I’ll be following up with more places to visit in my next post. Until then,

It’s Been a Couple of Weeks and I Think I Finally Got It!

Ash 5

It,” of course, is the latest upgrade to the Maitreya Lara body. the latest version of which is 5.0.2. In this post, I’m going to tell you everything I like about it, as well as what I don’t like about it.

What I Don’t Like About It

That’s easy: nothing. Absolutely nothing at all. So let’s move on, shall we?

What I Do Like About It

Wow! Where do I begin? Remember in previous versions how you had to add an alpha layer, then the body, then the arms and legs, etc. until you were finally wearing the complete body? That’s changed.

Now you add the alpha layer, and then the body. That’s it. You’re done. Everything else—clothes, tattoos, underwear, lingerie—all have their own layers. And unless you want to wear a tattoo, there’s no need to wear the layer, thus reducing your display weight.

Your skin tones are controlled through a new HUD, as are foot positions, fingernail settings, etc.

Another Something Great

Save sticks. No more worries about saving a particular outfit to, well, the Outfits folder. Find the Maitreya Mesh Body – Save Stick V5.0.1 (rez to rename) in the main Maitreya folder, drag it to the ground and edit the name to something easy to remember that has the name of whatever out fit you’re currently wearing, and take it back into your inventory.

Let’s say I’m wearing a yellow bikini. I’ll follow the steps above, renaming it “Yellow Bikini.” Then I’ll take it back into my inventory. The next step is to ADD it, then click on it:

Save Stick

(The arrow indicates the Save Stick.) Now all I have to do is click on the SAVE ALL button and wait for the process to complete. Then I’ll detach it, and it will return into my inventory.

The next time I want to wear that outfit again, I simply ADD the stick, touch it, and click the Load All button.

Best of all, the complete outfit only takes up a single prim (the Save Stick) in my inventory, as opposed to how many items in that outfit would take up the old way of saving it to the Outfits folder. Oh, and you can have as many save sticks as you need, since it’s copy-able.
