This wispy, sassy bob is Iconic’s event gift.  Iconic has generously given the full fatpack including materials options and rigged plus re-sizable models.  There are so many interesting color choices you’ll find it hard to decide which to wear.  Thanks Iconic for a terrific gift!

Izzie’s Eye Blush gift is fantastic for all of you makeup wearers out there.  And, in true Izzie fashion, the gift box is packed not only with appliers, but also the system tattoo layers.  This set comes with 3 shades that offer the choice between a darker or lighter application.  Whether you favor a bold statement, or a subtle hint of color you are bound to be pleased with this gift.

I’ll finish off this post with a great pair of heels from The Free Dove.  Rebel Hope’s Libby heels are surprisingly versatile.  At first glance, you might get the impression they are for formal wear.  But, several of our models have added these lovelies to their inventory, and all have remarked how often they wind up wearing them when no other shoe seams to fit an outfit. So, if you wear Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, or TMP feet then you might want to make a quick run to The Free Dove for these flashy, yet stylish heels.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

DRESS|Virtual Diva Couture .Utopy Woman's Day Gown – fitmesh (GG/free)

It’s International Women’s Day and the grid is popping with gifts.  If you’re not sure where to start looking for gifts, I recommend stopping by all your favorite stores.  More likely than not, they’ll have a special gift set out to celebrate.  If you’re on lot’s of store subscriber lists you’ve probably already got a few gifts in your inventory that were sent out.

Virtual Diva’s Women’s Day gift is simply stunning.  This is a fitmesh model, so you might need to use your alpha system a bit.  You’ll need to join their fee free group to take this gown home.  It’s really not a problem, since Virtual Diva also has several lovely past gifts out.

To finish off your ballroom look, head over to The Free Dove to get this beautiful jewelry set.  It’s a lovely older set that changes the metals and gems from an on touch popup menu.

Today’s coif is one of many fun styles available on Olive’s fast moving lucky board wall.  The bubble goth colorway so bright and cheery it seemed like the perfect fit for a spring themed outfit.

ASU - SpringintheAirfoot

Finishing off today’s look is a fabulous pair of ankle boots from Mosquito’s Way.  The Clara boots come in a highly versatile shade of chamois to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.  Though the boots are sized for particular mesh bodies, that doesn’t mean others can’t wear them.  Most classic avatars should be able to find an alpha in their inventory that will pair nicely with this style.

Shop happy everyone!

It’s easy to forget all about the great freebies lurking in the marketplace when running back and forth between the never ending stream of grid events.  So, today I’ve put together a fun little outfit that requires only two teleports and a handful of clicks in the Second Life Marketplace.

Join the free shopping group, Fabulously Free in SLthen visit Adoness to make the Frigg hairstyle your own.  The head tattoos included in this gift are for classic avatars.  Our model used one of the hairbases included with her mesh head to achieve today’s look.

Next, pop over to No Cabide and join the Mesh Body Friends group to get this wonderfully showy little nothing of a dress.  Catya comes in 10 fantastic shades, and is sized for Slink/Maitreya/Belleza bodies.

Today’s heels, piercings, and tattoos are great marketplace freebies.  Anyone with an Omega applier compatible body can enjoy these tattoos. The heels are available for Slink and Maitreya feet.

Here’s a chance to add a bit of that naughty school girl look to your wardrobe.  Simply pop over to Beautiful Dirty Rich (B.D.R.), join their free group, and help yourself to this outfit.  The sweater and skirt are separates, so you’ll have to click on two boxes.  But, my guess is, you’ll do a bit more clicking since B.D.R. also has past group gifts out.

Today’s featured hair is another one of the gifts currently available at Lamb.  Fate is a full fatpack which is always a bonus, and the group is free to join.

ASU - microminiback

Here’s a closer look at the micro-mini.  It’s so mini, finding panties to wear with it is definitely a challenge.  Our model cheated and just use her alpha system.

These delisciously high though boots are a marketplace freebie from D’eVil.  I’ve actually seen these boots in the marketplace and passed them by on several occasions.  After convincing today’s model to try them, I’m actually sorry it took me so long to pick them up.  They come with to great HUDS, one for latex and the other for leather.   The HUDs include slider controls for glossiness and environment effects, plus a tint picker.  Basically, you can create any color you’d like to wear making these boots a definite “must have” item.

Until next time, shop happy!

| SHOES|Ellnique Designs .October gift – basic black heels; Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)

Sometimes ballrooms and their dress codes can be so very dull. That’s why I just love this gown from Queenz!  Instead of being a standard somewhat boring floor length gown, it features nearly scandalous slits that flash a whole lot of leg while managing to cover all the naughty bits.  As an added bonus, wearers can choose whether or not they wear the sleeves.

If you’re worried about accidentally being a flasher while busting a move, you can pair the gown with one of the best gifts on the grid.  What you ask could that possibly be?  Kaithleen’s Universal Thong group gift!  This thong fits mesh bodies like a glove, and remains hidden under most meshes.

ASU - 2-20-19hands

Pop by Livia to get these wonderfully pointy Bento rigged mesh fingernails.  They come in 3 shades, with 3 styles.

Remember, all of the stores featured in today’s outfit have groups that are free to join and offer several past gifts.  Which means lots of goodies to keep you shopping happy. Enjoy!
