This week’s second offering from Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore is Giordana. It’s another mostly-formal updo with a twist (literally): it’s banded in front by a braid.
It’s the A&A Giordana Hair Variety Colors V2, and it’s available for $L250. Be sure to wear your A&A group tag and make your purchase from the Action Wall; that way, you’ll get an immediate refund of half your purchase price.
I probably should have chosen a more elegant outfit to model Yuki, but I had a migraine and just couldn’t be bothered. That, and I wanted to get my review of Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore’s newest offering to you as quickly as possible.
And yet Yuki cries out for an elegant, formal dress to do it justice.
It’s a Variety Colors pack, which means you get all 16 colors for just $L250. But as is always the case during the first week of a new style’s release, wear your A&A tag when you buy it from the New Releases wall and 50% of the purchase price will be refunded to you. So you’re actually getting 16 colors for $L125, or less than $L10 each!
Oh, and the tiara that’s shown in the picture? You can wear it in any of 9 colors, or hide it altogether.
Yuki is available in Raspberry as a free gift at the front desk. Or you can buy it in Light Blonde from the Special Offers wall for $L50. Finally, it’s available as another free gift (in Blackberry) in front of the Voting Board.
Any way you look at it, Yuki is a clear winner for those long romantic nights, and it’s only available at Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore.
I don’t know how many items they have in stock, but when I search Alli&Ali on the SL Marketplace and display 96 images per page in the results, it takes 96 pages to list them all! That’s almost 10,000 items, and there are more every week.
Now I don’t know about you, but I think that the fact they have that many items and each item has a unique name, is definitely worthy of respect!
And yesterday’s release is also worthy of respect.
Iris is a modified page-boy bob, just slightly longer. The complete set of 16 colors is now available for just $L250. But if you purchase it from the Action Wall while wearing your A&S group tag, half of that will be refunded to you immediately upon purchase.
Still not convinced? The style in Amethyst is a free gift at the Front Desk, and
Sand Blonde can be had for $L50 at the Special Offers Wall.
And here I am modeling Iris in my usual favorite shade:
My usual complaint about A&A applies to IRIS as well: every time there’s a new style at Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore, it immediately becomes my new favorite! And this is especially true of the shorter styles like this one.
Iris. When you’re in the mood for short and sassy, you won’t go wrong with this one!
I’ve blogged this style before, but now it’s available in the Alli & Ali Mainstore. It was originally available only at a special event, but now it’s the style of the week. It includes the 16 colors shown above, and you can get it for $L250.
But as is now the common practice when a new style is released, you will get a 50% refund of your purchase price if you buy it from the Action wall (which is located to your left as you face the main desk).
In addition, while you’re at the front desk, you can also pick up a copy in Black Pink for free!
Just want a single color? Then go over to the Special Offers wall and grab this style in Coffee for only $L50.
One of the things I like about Anastasia is that besides being able to pick the color you want, you can also pick the color and texture of the hair tie that runs through it. Or you can decide not to show it at all.
In short, Anastasia is the style that makes me feel like a Greek goddess whenever I wear it.
I absolutely love this one because it combines two of my favorite things in hairstyles: curls and a braid.
And check out the low display weight! This has been a feature of all Alli&Ali’s new styles for months and is a big improvement over most makes and brands of hair, some of which can add almost 100 points to your display weights. This, in turn, slows down your rezzing and is generally a pain in the you-know-what.
The A&A Charis Hair All Colors is boxed, and it’s available for $L1200. Its permissions are, as always, COPY, MOD, NO TRANS.
And as they love to say on television adverts, “BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!”
Each of the 8 color boxes sells for $L250 and comes with the same permissions.
And yes, there’s even more:
Wear your Alli&Ali group tag before you make your purchases and you’ll get half the purchase price refunded to you. This makes what I consider the best hair in SL an even better deal—and stronger temptation.
And though Eve’s downfall was to give in to temptation, no less an expert than Oscar Wilde wrote, “I avoid temptation by yielding to it.” Besides, isn’t it just like a man to blame all of his problems on a woman?
Come to think of it, aren’t all of a woman’s problems caused by men? MENopause, MENstruation, MENtal illness?
Charis is available in Platinum Raspberry as a free gift at the front desk, as a Voting gift in Fire, or as a Special offer in Pearl for $L50.
Remember the days of the Page Boy bob? Good heavens! I’ve just dated myself! But never you mind! Olya is sure to bring out your inner flapper, and it’s available right now from Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore.
The Fatpack, containing all 256(!) colors, sells for $L1200. Each of the 10 color group packages goes for $L250. But don’t forget: if you’re wearing you A&A group title, and you make your purchase from the Action Wall at the front of the store, half of the purchase price will be refunded to you.
A single color, Sand Blond, is available as a gift at the front desk. Strawberry Creme is available on the Specials Wall for $L50.
Olya, bringing back the days of bathtub gin, Tommy guns, and gangsters.
A new release in the Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore. Scarlett comes in 10 separate color packs at $L250 each, and the whole set for $L1200.
BUT! (And there’s always a but!) Group members get half price refunded when wearing the title and buying the hairstyle from our “Action Wall,” so you can actually get the entire set for $L600! This is something new and will continue for the future: we offer this for all our new releases in the week they come out.
You can find the included green single color as a gift this week in the Mainstore, below the hairstyles voting board.
It’s also available as a gift in Black Pink at the front desk, or in Fire for $L50, under the Special Offers board, located to the right of the front desk.
So you see? You really have no excuse for not adding Scarlett to your inventory! And if you do manage to come up with an excuse, I’ll just quote what Rhett said to Scarlett at the end of Gone With The Wind: “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn!”
