Mellow Yellow

Yellow. It’s a hard colour to match, and a hard colour to wear. The danger of looking like a bumblebee is ever-present!

However, the Peppermint Blue Free Store has a few yellow outfits, and Mar was up for a challenge. Mixed with black, yellow can work well, so here’s what she did with them.

The first outfit is Assistance Pack #081121. This contains a black coat, yellow leggings, bag, limited-edition spectacles (purple lenses, which I re-tinted yellow, to match the outfit), black boots (which I’m not wearing here; see in a moment for credits for those) and the usual plethora of shapes and skins.

Mar has teamed it with the Neo Boots from House of Curios. These cost 40L$ and have a myriad of colour change options, so you can match them to just about any outfit you want. Here, Mar opted for black, to complete the outfit. Find them in-world (here) and on XstreetSL (here).

The second Peppermint Blue pack is #081107. This one comes with the usual skins and shapes, and this yellow coat outfit (long and short coat skirts included), skirt, socks, boots (not worn), bag and lingerie. I’ve teamed this set with the 1L$ Lilith Lime shoes, from Ilayda (here, on XstreetSL).

The hair in both pics is from Waka & Yuki’s free and discount stall, upstairs at the Peppermint Blue Free Store. When you’ve taken the teleporter upstairs, turn right and head for the first market stall. Mar chose the Free5 hair, because it had gold stars in it that matched the outfit.

Top to Toe

Between them, SF Design and R2 have you covered from top to toe. This month’s freebie from SF Design (available throughout August in both the menswear and womenswear sections) is a fabulous hat-with-hair, designed to match their Performance Suit. The hat and hair come separately, but the hair is designed to work with the hat, so it’s adjusted specifically and won’t work too well on its own (unless you want to spend some time adjusting it). The hair comes in four colours: Black (shown below), blonde, light blonde, and brown. The hat can be worn with any other hair, as well as the SF Design hair, and if you click the hatband you’ll get a menu that will let you retexture the hat. Hat and hair all come in three sizes each, and are unisex. This is such a great gift, simply because it’s so versatile!

Secondly, your toes are covered by R2. You are really going to have to RUN for this, as the gift has been out for some time and I don’t know how much longer it will be available. It was put out to celebrate the opening of the new Love Soul sim, and it’s a free pair of sexy blue and silver shoes from R2’s Mahealani range. You’ll find them on the table in the middle of the store, by the couches.

I’ve teamed the freebies with some 15L$ items from ETD: the Silver Jeans and the Navy Wrap Sweater.
