Some Like it Hot

ASU - Some Like it Hotcover
What could be better than a gorgeous cruelty free sable coat? … A gorgeous FREE sable coat that comes in so many fabulous shades it makes you wish for an endless winter!

This lovely fur is just one of the many items available for free in the The Shops from The Mesh Project.  Before you shout out “I don’t wear the TMP body!” keep in mind this is a coat and it will likely fit whatever body you wear.

To support this claim Team All Spiffed Up asked our model, Valentina, to pickup a few free items from The Shops to try on her Altamura body.  The coat was an easy fit, looks great from all angles, and is definitely worth acquiring.

The top, skirt, and boots required heavy use of Altamura’s alpha system.  So, if you have a body with a great alpha system, like the challenge of making clothing work, then by all means rush over to The Shops for some fantastic freebies!

These lovely drop earrings are a subscriber gift at Zuri Jewelry.

Valentina’s fun hairstyle is one of the many group gifts currently available at NYNE. NYNE tends to package their hairstyles with a rigged and unrigged mesh version.  When you change and tweak your avatar as much as most of the members of Team All Spiffed Up it is especially nice to have hair that can resize.  As always, NYNE’s group is free to join.  Thanks NYNE for keeping SL fashionable!

Endless Love

ASU Endless Love
There’s something about pink satin that simply makes a girl weak in the knees!  MH Unique Design’s Vivi Dress is irresistibly shimmery and shiny.  The shading on this gown is so wonderful you’ll find it hard not to remember your first encounter with satin.
ASU Endless Love back
Look at that drape, it’s just so very lovely!  Vivi fits both classic and mesh bodies, so everyone can experience a decadent night out.  It is hard to believe this gown is free.  Thanks MH Unique Design for keeping love alive.
ASU Endless Love Face
This fun heart studded coif is a free gift from Exile.  The hair comes with two HUDs, one to color the heart accents, and the other shades the hair.  All of the hair colors are mottled in the most appealing way.

When we caught up with today’s model Carla, she was still wearing the makeup from her Puppy Love blog entry.  This fabulous makeup set was a Valentine’s Day gift from Izzie’s, and it is still available.

So if you missed it the first time around be sure to rush over to Izzies’s now and get it while you can.   We love that Izzie’s packed the gift with both appliers and  makeup layers so everyone whether they are classic or mesh can enjoy a makeover.

Let’s talk about the eBODY SHOP!  eBODY makes 2 mesh bodies: the Classic, and the Curvy.  The eBODY controller HUD is extensive and very easy to use.  Both mesh bodies are competitively priced with the other name brand bodies.

eBODY stands apart from the others by selling excellent gift versions of both bodies for 1L.  That’s right 1L will get you a wonderful mesh body.  Does the gift version have all the bells and whistles that the full priced body has?  Of course not.  But what the gift version has is most definitely worth the Linden!

What you get for 1L from eBODY:

  • 12 Body Skintones
  • Alpha Thick (31 areas to hide)
  • Mesh hands (not bento)
  • Mesh feet (High, Mid, Flat)  (Slink compatible)
  • A neck fix
  • Several body shapes
  • eBODY physic 1

Our model is wearing the Pin-Up outfit gift for MLM members.  This is a wonderful gift that consists of the cropped blouse and jeans.  Pin-up is mesh and comes sized to fit most mesh bodies along with 5 standard sizes and an alpha for classic avatars.  **NOTE:  Pin-up does not fit the TMP Beta Free Body.
