We found a fabulous pair of heels on a recent visit to KC Couture.  While browsing the store the Serena Fatpack cycled onto one of KC’s lucky boards.  Joy of joys, the Serena’s HUD features 20 textures, the ability to change strap colors together or separately, heel change options, and a style option that allows for converting the Serena from a two to a one strap heel. Serena is simply shoegasmic!

COCO Designs’ put out a new gift, the high waist dark grey jeans.  These jeans are terrific.  They are sized for Slink, Maytreya, and Belleza bodies.  However, there is nothing to stop classic avatars from enjoying them too.  More likely than not, you already have several pant alphas in your inventory.  One of them is bound to work.

While at COCO Designs take a few moments to peruse their gift wall.  There are several nice casual tops to chose from to complete the outfit.  Our model chose the the cropped tee.  There’s just something about seeing a bright hello in a strategic spot that makes a person smile.

Let’s Do it Again!

Do what again?  On9, of course.  Though we featured several of the fabulous gifts available at On9 yesterday, we still have more to share

ArisArisB&W’s Surprise Dress is a gift we couldn’t resist modeling.  This stylish handkerchief dress comes with 4 great fabric options sized for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Ebody, and Tonic mesh bodies.

ASU - Nina4back

Here’s a nice side/back view of both the dress and the hair.

The Twirl hairstyle from Olive is quite possibly one of the nicest below-the-shoulder styles on the grid.  The rigging is super, and the fall is very natural.  Twirl even comes boxed with a unicorn horn for endless hours of roleplay.

ASU - Nina4facef5

Today’s jewelry is all part of the Diana Full Set gift from Moondance Boutique at, you guessed it, On9.  The set has 5 earrings, 5 bracelets, 5 rings, and a necklace.  There are 20 opal colors and 8 metals to choose from.  Basically, this single set will pretty much cover most of your more modern themed jewelry needs.

ASU - FaMeshed2

Thanks to the September round of FaMESHed I can’t seam to get Ms. O’Keeffe and Willie Nelson out of my head.  I blame the insanity on Belle Epoque for putting such a fabulous O’Keeffesque gift out at FaMESHed.

The Nerea Headpiece comes with an 8 color HUD that allows for changing the center and outer petals either together or independently.

ASU - fameshed2back1

This wonderful catsuit is Kaithleen’s contribution to the FaMESHed gift wagon.  It is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies. The catsuit’s base color is Rose and cannot be changed.  However, the stripes, straps, and zipper are controlled by a HUD that offers 19 color options for the stripes and straps, and 3 metal options for the zipper.

ASU - Fameshed2flower

Here’s a closeup of the headpiece and a sneak peek at the gift from Empyrean Forge (EF).

Today’s casual up-do is a Midnight Mania fatpack gift from Olive Hair.  Though this hair is not on today’s board it will rotate back in.  Olive currently uses 7 fatpacks that are rotated for the daily mania, so if  you miss one simply keep dropping by until it is featured again.

Empyrean Forge’s Serenity necklace is unrigged for easy repositioning and includes a 7 color HUD with 2 metal finishes. It’s a lovely versatile gift, thanks EF!

Astronomy 101

ASU - Astronomy101cfinal

Is it just me, or do those planets look curiously similar to pressed powder eyeshadow?  I have a sneaking suspicion our Iona is deviating from the lesson plan.

Musing aside, we’ve got a few nice finds to brighten up your Monday. So let’s get down to business.

ASU - Astronomy101back

Team All Spiffed Up discovered Safira this weekend.  Safira is a wonderful store run by generous owners.  Safira’s group gift wall is loaded with great items all of which are free

Iona chose to model Safira’s Noa dress.  Noa comes with a 6 color HUD sized for Slink Physique.  If you wear a different mesh body, don’t worry as long as you have a detailed alpha system you’ll be fine.  Iona wears Maitreya’s Lara body, and with a little trial and error on the leg alphas she was able to get the perfect fit.

ASU - Astronomy101eyeclosed

Look at the lovely shading in this eyeshadow!  It’s one of 12 great colorways featured in the Paulie gift set in Zibska’s marketplace store.  The set is packaged with mesh appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega systems.  Best of all, it’s free!

ASU - Anatomy101face

Under the Paulie eyeshadow applier is the Blair skin from 7 Deadly s[K]ins (7DS) Blair was recently a Midnight Mania gift.  Though you won’t be able to pickup Blair today, you can slap both of the free Midnight Mania boards located on the wall behind the main desk.

After you click the Midnight Manias pan left and check out the gift boxes. 7DS supports several shopping groups with nice gifts.

Crowning it all off is Summer, another great Lucky Board gift from Olive Hair.  This gift features the blondes HUD, has a streaks option, and comes with rigged and unrigged models.

ASU - Astronomy101shoe

These yummy espadrilles are still available at C&S.  They are sized for Slink/Maitreya feet, and come with a 40 color HUD that allows for overall color changes or separate colored laces.  You’ll find these beauties on the second floor.

ASU - Astronomyplanets

This fun 3D solar system picture is the September group gift at MUSU.  It also comes boxed with a smaller solar system compact.  The compact so strongly resembles holiday makeup sets purchased at a cosmetic counter that our poor Iona simply could not believe it wasn’t an actual applier gift.  She kept unpacking the original box thinking an applier set would be delivered.  Needless to say, that didn’t happen because this wonderfully quirky gift is a DECOR item only.

…silly question!

We’ve even found a classy new outfit at BlackRose to lure you back into your closet.  The Veronica Outfit is sized for mesh bodies and thoughtfully includes an alpha for classic avatar use.

The outfit is one piece, so it’s super fast to get into.  Perfect for anyone with a hectic social schedule.  Gotta love that drape and button detailing on the top.

This glamorous hairstyle is a gift at Firelight for Shelbyfied.  It is packaged with rigged and unrigged models, a 2 color HUD, and a tint HUD.

In her last ASU appearance, our model Gabby, discovered Esode’s Zoe Skin.  She liked it so much it has become her default look.  Luckily for us, Zoe is still Esode’s featured group gift.

The necklace and bracelet featured above are part of Masoom’s gift available at The Free Dove.

While at The Free Dove cruise by the shoe table to get these flashy fur boots.  The boots are rigged for mesh feet, and are not packaged with a foot hiding alpha.  However, that didn’t stop classic Gabby from enjoying these boots.  She simply kept the foot alpha from a pair of heels she was wearing on, and it worked perfectly.
