This past week has really been a shopping week for me. Must love SL for that, right?
Anyway, I’d found myself in need of some opaque tights. Not over-the-knee socks, not thigh-highs or stockings (and yes, there is a difference), and not pantyhose. Opaque tights, muted colors, no decorations on them. After throwing a few terms in Search and not finding what I needed at those places, I discovered Sweet Tea, an absolutely adorable shop for clothing. I can’t believe I’d missed it before! I was so shinnied by the clothing that I completely forgot to look for the tights (which are upstairs, by the way), but I returned the next day and tried on a ton of clothes.
One of the things I love about Sweet Tea is that I don’t have to return home to try on the demos. Jasmine Moonflower Gardner (jasminefairy) has given her shoppers a wonderfully roomy dressing room so we can try things on behind a curtain. It may just sound like laziness, but for me, this is a huge plus. I spent a good half-hour trying on all sorts of different outfits, and finally settled on three. Or was it four? And when I say “outfits”, I mean it. She has tops and bottoms, and many times adds footwear, in one package. Not only that, but she has the most adorable HUDs you use to change the textures on everything so you can mix and match!
I had to wear my new jeans and sweater from Sweet Tea when I went to explore Gates of Memories. Dressing a lot like I do in reals in the colder weather, I walked around, looking at different pieces of artwork installed on the sim. If you haven’t seen it yet, you really need to! They change everything around after a number of weeks, and I’m not sure how much longer this one will be up. It is a seriously beautiful place and deserves a long, leisurely visit.
