It’s 93° Outside, and I’m in no Mood for Writing

Still, I made a commitment, and I’m gonna stick to it.

This week’s style from Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore is Thisbe, a lovely do with flowers embedded in it. Naturally, this being from A&A, there’s an option to either hide or display the flowers.

Thisbe sells for $L1500 for the complete collection; however, you can buy the Mixed Blonde set for the special sale price of only $L99.

And to make it even better, there’s a freebie (Pink Blonde) at the front desk for you! Just wear your Alli&Ali group tag and it’s yours!

Each design comes with four different styles, which can be selected via the enclosed HUD.

And this is me, modelling one of the reds (of course!):

Thisbe: waiting for you at the Alli&Ali Designs Mainstore!

If You Want to Spend Money…

While it’s true that freebies abound in SL, sometimes you just have to break down and spend money. The in-world currency is the Linden, often abbreviated as $L. A specific amount, then, would be $L100.

How does this translate into “real” money? That will vary by country, but as of this writing, $L2500 will cost you $10.95 in US dollars. To buy $L, open your dashboard, look for Linden Exchange, and click on Buy. There, if you haven’t already established a payment method, you’ll be walked through the entire process.

Of course, if you have a premium account, you already receive an allowance of $L300 each week, so if you like, you can simply save up your allowance. But if you choose this route, It will take quite a while to save up enough to buy a decent mesh body.

My body came from Maitreya, which is currently the most popular source. Its “Lara” body is extremely high quality, which is one reason it sells for $L2750, or just a little over $11.00 US. It comes with 5 different bodies, which you can modify to your heart’s delight.

Alli  & Ali Designs is my favorite source for hair. Not only do they have a huge selection and reasonable prices, you can also find them on the SL Marketplace. In fact, I usually get my hair there, where many if their offerings sell for $L1.

Lara Hurley Skin completes my initial outfit with one of their free offerings.

Total cost? Less than $12.00 USD. The dress and shoes are available for free at Maitreya, but there’s a catch (but it’s a good one): you need to join the Maitreya V.I.P. group—which you can do at the store. Be sure to join the group before you buy anything; that way you’ll get store credit every time you purchase anything there. NOTE: this doesn’t apply to any of Maitreya’s offerings on the SL Marketplace.

So, for just under $12 US, you get the Lara package, a dress, three pairs of shoes, and a resulting store credit which comes to $L125—which you can then spend on a pair of panties!

Oh—and the dress comes with a HUD (Heads-up Display) that allows you to change its color at the touch of a button!

And that, dear kittens, is it for today!’
