Happy Monday everyone and welcome to Mainstore Monday. The focus of the post today is vibrancy!
The first store I visited for this weeks meme is Happy Mood aka HPMD. This is a long time favourite store of mine and I’ve used a lot of their items in builds I have done at my club, !Exodus! or when I had my sim ‘Less Than Three’
HPMD is more than a store, it’s a beautiful, enchanted forest which is glorious and perfect for photographers or just to hang out with friends.
HPMD sells a varied range of landscaping items including trees, bushes, pathways, flowers and shrubs in a range of colours and options. There are also accessories for your landscape with fireflies, glowflies and other lights as well as animals. If you shop or visit a lot of sims in SL you will no doubt recognise many of their wares from other places that use them.
The sim is really out of this world and really does put you in a great mood when you visit at all the little hidden areas and surprises you can find. I highly recommend a visit just to soak up the atmosphere and put yourself in a Happy Mood. Click on this link to visit.
My second store for this week is Avale. Now I have to be honest and admit that I have not visited Avale since pre-mesh days so this was a totally new experience for me.
The first thing that hit me when I walked through the door was the amazing vibrancy and colour palette used by this designer. I loved it! I was so upbeat after visiting HPMD that this was the perfect store visit to follow up with.
This is a designer who isn’t afraid of colour and makes some wonderful match-ups of tones that completely compliment each other. The store is very open plan and well laid out and has a separate room for applier clothing for all the major brands of mesh bodies.
I took the opportunity to colour up my inventory with this dress and also purchased a couple of other items…pushing the envelope from my usual colour ranges. Click this link for a tp to Avale.
