Lordy me. She's right! These are some pretty nice dresses, each for $100L or under! And there is a Free Today day under the sign. That's it. No chair you have to camp for, no TPing all your friends in. Just buy for $0L. The Free Today dress is this lovely grey and green, one shoulder number i'm wearing on the right.
The skirt is flexi, and with top matching details along the bottom. We know how much I like that. It didn't quite fit my butt, but I'm sure no one in all of SL has the exact same butt as me. I like the shading and details on the top. I'm just not too sure about the color. I love green. But not the HI-C Ectocooler green. I dunno, maybe it's just my poor sick widdle brain, but grey and green just don't go together very well. Maybe a grey and black, grey and red. Neon green is never a color to be on ball gowns. Neon green is meant for mini skirts and legwarmers. But I like this dress. I like the style. Not alot of one shoulder dresses in SL. The sweetheart bodice neckline is the preferred here in SL. It's nice to see a bit of change.
On the left, me again, wearing the Rusty Mandalas mini. This I got out of the Lucky Chair. That's right, she doesn't just GIVE away ONE gown, she has a Lucky Chair there too. You could visit her place and get TWO free gowns. If you're a newbie, that is great! Heck, if you're an oldbie, that's great! How many times do we get free gowns? This outfit comes with TWO different skirts. I prefer the mini skirt obviously, but the ball length flexi skirt is fun too. It has an interesting alpha to it, and the same detailing on the top and the mini skirt. THere is a nice bit of underboob shading and the patterned belt has no seen seams. I once again had to adjust the skirt.
What? DO I have the biggest BUTT in SL? Please, someone help me here? Maybe we should take a poll, and find the average butt size, hip size, all that. And get all the designers to use that average. I've had skirts thaat hover around my body like a hula hoop, and I've had skirts that disappear into my hips. Oh well. /rant off.
All in all, L'elfe Blanc looks like a good up and coming place. She had good prices, and the dresses are pretty darn good for the price. They aren't as detailed as some dresses that are $400000L but what you get is good. I'd tell the designer of L'elfe Blanc to give a little work to her detailing on the textures. And maybe not use a almost pure white skin for your ads. With the white background, it was almost like a floating gown. Overall, very nice $100L or under stuff

OK.. so this is my store. I make shoes. Unusual shoes. Shoes with fun heels. All sorts of shoes. I sell my shoes for $10 and up. Good deal? yeah.. I know.
I have a deal right now that if you come up with an idea for a pair of shoes, I will make these shoes. Or at least try. YOU get the first pair I make and you get to model the shoes on the box for me. Pretty darn cool huh? Yeah.. that's what I thought. I've made a couple pairs for people already. Did I tell you they get named after you? Yeah.. that too..
These are my Brown Stacked Heels. I'm really proud of these. I'm selling them for $100. They fit size 0 feet like most prim shoes. I think these are pretty darn cool, almost look real! I also made these in a couple different colors and I made a fun wedge version too.
This is my buddy Neural's Store. Looks alot like mine. Probably because we share a store. Neural makes some of the best stockings in all of SL. Trust me. I know.. I have to look at them all the time. :}
She's really working hard on some fun lingerie for V-day, I love those cami's and thongs with the hearts. I like them so much, I made shoes to match! She's selling the outfit for $100!! How cool is that? Guess what.. the shoes are only $25.
OK.. enough self promotion. Sorry for the short blog post, I've been racking up the points in Smokin Aces. If you get a chance.. come on down! Come to the Smokin Aces Sim, and join the rest of us.

Straight in front of my eyes is this lovely white outfit with embroidered roses. The one on the right in the pic above, called Red Vines. It comes in two layers, the undershirt, a basic white tube with a little lacing design on the back, and the sheer, embroidered jacket layer. Did you notice how the sheer top comes OVER the top of the pants? NICE detail.
The PANTS! White Pants with details. They are called dress pants and they are detailed just like RL knit dress pants, with a covered fly and set in back pockets. I'm just happy to find a nice pair of pants in SL that doesn't hover somewhere around my asscrack! There are some pants in SL that defy the laws of gravity and good taste, but not these.
This is over all a great outfit for a nice date, or whatever they call it in SL. Best part? It was only $150! Details and quaility like this for $150 is rare.
Ok ok ok.. so I ramble on about this outfit.. I like it.. SUE me.. but the dress on the left is just as good. Called Black Flex Lace and a lovely $150, it's skirt is a good amount of flex, not tooooo fly away, not tooo stiff. Best detail, is a lace prim on the neckline. Just one of those make an outfit details that I love. I love them even more when they are $150!
Not alot in this little store, but what I see is well priced, well pic'ed, and well done. Lots of jeans and tops, not exactly T-shirts, but.. more like.. shirts. The jeans are lovely, but I'd like to see more variety in the jeans, maybe some belts. There's also a few tattoos that look out of place with the more refined clothing offerings, but who am I to complain when they TOO are well done and well priced.
Kat Spice, owner of Spice Designs needs to update her picks though, for I tried to find her "home store" from her picks and ended up somewhere else. I stuck with the location I got from the serach menu. She's also been in game for over a year, so I'm hoping she's got more stuff, cause I like what I see.
takes you right to the store. Enjoy ladies.. oh.. and gents.. there are TWO men's outfits on the right side wall.. so.. if your lady drags you there, look um over!

Her style is a little anime, a little real life. I'm trying on the Ambush bob in Radiation Red. Who knew I liked red? The fit was good, I tend to have a large head (no jokes people!) and didn't have to mod this hair to have it look this good. It's not flexi and I can live with that, I like the occassional static hair, it's great for laggy places like NCI.
Also here at Nuclear Boutique were some fabulous shoes, which I'm trying to cut down on buying, I mean, come on.... I MAKE shoes, I don't need to buy everyone else's too! But her shoes match these adorable hot colored sweaters with prim fur cuffs. The shoes are a bargain at $40, and matching sweater is only another $40!
But for us bargain shoppers.. the best is.. the freebies.. right? We're all about the freebies. And does she deliver on the freebies.. If you join her update group you get free hair and outfit.
But even if you don't. there are THREE Gift bags full of fun freebies, I see some shoes, some undies.. I can't wait to get back home and look at all the free stuff I got..
AND ladies, she's having a 20% off sale.. so hit it now!

First off.. I remember when she was the "Dot Twenty-five" store and had some fun cute hair.. she's grown out now.. and got rid of my FAV hair style the Isis. But she's grown into some more great hairs, 4 colors for only $75 lindens. And, for newbies or the non campers, who exist on stipends, that is a great price.
Each pack contains red, brown, black and blonde and a bald. I love when hair designers remember to add a bald to their hair packs. I hate having to track a bald down in my inventory!
Her textures are a nice shiny texture, without looking too greasy like some. I took a couple good friends down to her store with me, comments were good. We would like a white texture too, and Darlene says maybe some cyberpunk for those who like that sorta thing. Bev, who is a stickler for blonde textures, loves Sarabi's blonde. The red is a rich, darker red, that I love.
Now on to Fit, as I said, I like the fact that there is a bald in the pack, saves me time and trouble. I just plopped the Pearl on my head and it fit like a charm, usually I have to move some prim outta my eyes or fill in the back of my head! My friend Bev, just plopped her Gardenia (with cuuute flowers that are detachable!) on and it fit too!
Oh and the hairs are no transfer, but she does have gift certificates and a freebie voucher for under 1 month! And they are copy and mod so you can fit them to a few different AV shapes!
But.. Sarabi just doesn't do HAIR, she has some adorable kitchy earrings upstairs. I love the Kiwi dangles for just $25! And they ARE transferable, so get some now.
Also in the store is a lucky chair, for us Lucky Chair Hoppers and do you know what the prize is? Lucky Chair earrings!! I almost had to camp it to get them.. soooo cute and so creative! Sarabi, what's next?
Let me know in the comments what YOU think about this Designer
This blog isn't about that.. I want the places you take a newbie to get the deals. I want the little known out of the way stores that are on the bottom of the list when you search for "Shoes" or "Skins"
Are you that designer? Did you just open your store and can't get reviewed by the big "dolls" to save your life? Send me a LM to your store. You don't have to send a review copy, cause let me tell you.. sending a review copy and waiting to see if it was reviewed and never being reviewed.. hurts.. sooo.. I'll buy it if I like it.. then I'll review it.. Don't be afraid.. I don't bite... unless you want me to..
So designers or just people who know of those little stores, send me those LMS! I'm ready... well.. as long as the grid is up and I can TP
BTW.. having a sale? Link me, honey.. I can have 20-30 people to your store in a matter of minutes, trust me...
