February 27, 2014: Favorite Finds From Fantasy Gacha Carnival & 25L Tuesday Goodies!

Greetings fellow thrifty shoppers!

I’ve braved strep throat and other assorted RL joys to bring you today’s post – a mixed post, so to speak.  First of all I wanted to celebrate some of my favorite finds of this month’s Fantasy Gacha Carnival, which closes tomorrow :O as well as a couple finds from the most recent round of 25L Tuesday.

There were many more vendors and lots more to find this February, in terms of gacha, and the Fantasy Gacha Fair did not fail to disappoint.  I love most all things girly and pink, so once I got lucky and snagged the .Enfant Terrible. ultra rare staff and rare floral headpiece in this pastel shade, I knew what kind of outfit I wanted to put together.  Below is the end result, which I hope you all enjoy!  Be sure to visit the Fantasy Gacha Carnival ASAP before it’s gone!

February 22, 2014: 30L Releases From May’s Soul, On a Lark, & Black Pearl!

Greetings fellow thrifty shoppers!

Today I bring you 30L finds from across the grid as it’s Saturday! As per my Saturday morning ritual I sat down to my computer, coffee in hand, and began to browse some of my favorite shops.  I soon realized I needed to put together an outfit for a Free Woman, so my lovely alt Cordelia will be modeling for you today!

I’d purchased one of Lark’s gowns from her line “Dragonius” when they were first released for 25L Tuesday, however I regretted not picking up more colors.  Today I had my chance, and I was drawn to the lovely aqua shade of this gown.  It paired up perfectly with the crown from May’s Soul, to my delight!  I finished off the look with the gorgeous necklace featured in the Black Pearl’s ensemble “Loreen”, which is a lovely piece available in a variety of different colored stones-a perfect addition for any outfit you might choose, and affordable too!

Inspired by the viking feel of this outfit I shot my images at the stunningly built role-play sim, Amhas Cairn.  If you’re looking for a by the book Gorean Torvie sim with rich rp and a great community, look no further!

But enough chatter, onto the pics!

February 21, 2014: 25L Release From On a Lark!

For today’s entry I wanted to showcase the newest release from On a Lark which was just in time for the most recent 25L Tuesday event, entitled “Audrey”.  In typical fashion I decided to wear the red version and paired it with matching OAL “Tugged” (berry) arm warmers I’d managed to snag at one of the previous 25L events!  I love using these arm warmers (along with several other colors available) to mix n’ match with a variety of outfits and this one was no exception.  To polish off the look I threw on a pair of my favorite May’s Soul leg warmers, which are in my opinion perfect with a mini skirt or some cute undies, and added a finishing touch with one of the beautiful selections available from the .Enfant Terrible. gacha, the Midsommer dream necklace (available at the current round of the Fantasy Gacha Carnival)!

This ensemble is a little more BtB than my usual outfits, as I usually have a crown or even a mesh cat on my head (thank you Mango Cheeks!), but I love it all the same and hope you do too.  I wish you all happy shopping, and may you come across some thrifty finds of your own!

February 20, 2014: May’s Soul at Fantasy Collective!

Looking for fantasy or role-play fashion for a good price? Trying to save money to pay tier but want something new that doesn’t look like it came from an old, pixelated dumpster? Perhaps you just are trying to save some lindens while you await the next major gacha event!  The Thrifty Bondmaid aims to please, showcasing outfits put together using clothing and accessories at 100L or less!

Luckily the Fantasy Collective opened today, and while browsing for something that might be affordable yet fabulous I came across my newest favorite item – the May’s Soul Spring Shield, which fortunately for me was *just* within my budget!  After settling on the lovely blue floral design I decided to showcase one of my other favorite finds of the week – one of Magika’s new styles, “Never”.  Because creator Sabina Gully had recently designed new multi-color textures, she placed her color packs on sale, and I was able to snag this gorgeous style for only 50L! I hope you did also, because the sale on her bi and multi-color packs ended on the 18th.

I look forward to bringing you all fun and creative fashions from yard sales, gacha machines, and any other hunts and sales I can find in the future!

<3, Candi
