Afternoon Stroll

ASU - Afternoon Strollcover
Gather around guys, this post is for you! In just two teleports you’ll walk away with a new free mesh body and a complete casual outfit.

The Aiden outfit is a January group gift at Lupus Femina.  And, as usual joining the Lupus Femina group is free.  Aiden is a three piece set that fits both classic and mesh bodies.  The set is composed of the jacket, running shoes, and jeans. 
ASU - Afternoon Strollback
After picking up the clothing we recommend you rush over to syhk ASAP to get yourself the free male mesh body 1.2.
ASU - Afternoon Strollbody
Our model Wolfgang is wearing the fabulous syhk 1.2 body and the included shape.  This is by far the nicest free mesh body Team All Spiffed Up has encountered to date.  There is so much to love about this body that we decided to let the pictures do our heavy lifting.

We have included a picture of the body’s HUD.  syhk 1.2 comes with an extensive alpha system, an included tattoo, mesh underwear, and preset skin & nail colors with the additional ability to use a color picker to make your own skin tones.

Since we were unable to find any sort of neck fix option in the box, the color picker is a great feature that allows a patient person to nearly match whatever head option they choose to wear.
ASU - Afternoon StrollHUD
Below is the included tattoo which can easily be worn by clicking on the tattoo picture.  To remove simply click hide. The same process applies to the underwear.  The HUD’s simplicity makes wearing syhk 1.2 a joy.

& Stuff…

& Stuff...LucyCover
The ‘stuff Groups SL are kicking off the new year with a flurry of freebies! If you are thinking ‘stuff Groups who, what, huh?  Don’t worry you’re not alone.  Most likely you’ll recognize this group more readily by the individual hunts they organize:  Menstuff, Womenstuff, Kidstuff, Homestuff, & Posestuff.

I know hunts can be annoyingly frustrating, BUT ‘stuff Hunts are in a class of their own.  Why we love ‘stuff Hunts:

  • The gifts are great!
  • The gifts are free (0L)
  • The hunt objects are easy to find.
  • The hunt runs from January 1st – January 31st
  • The hunt hints make sense! (for those of us having a problem finding the object)
  • The participating designers tend to be generous.  If the hunt gift is not to your liking there is an excellent chance a more interesting freebie is lurking in the store’s group gift or lucky chair area.
  • Womenstuff hint page:   Store listing, hints, & landmark page

Our first model Lucy is Team All Spiffed Up’s go to gal for hunts and bustling events.  She decided to keep today’s post simple and show off the first three items from the Womenstuff hint page plus a free hair from Radex DesiGn.
& Stuff...Lucyside
Lune~Bleue’s Womenstuff gift is this wonderful black and white winter ensemble.  The Frosty outfit comes complete with a coat, tank & skirt, and half-boots & socks. The coat and socks are separates, thus can be mixed and matched freely with other items in your inventory.

Best of all, Lune~Bleue  has considerately provided the Frosty outfit sized for both classic and mesh avatars.  Which explains why we are blogging the same outfit on three different models today.  Lucy is a classic avatar wearing an XS tank & skirt combined with a S coat. She advises wearing the coat one size larger than your tank & skirt size to prevent them from poking through the coat when moving.
& Stuff...Everleyfront
Everley wears the TMP basic free mesh body.  This body is quite lovely, but does have it’s challenges for those of us not willing to spend lindens.  The basic free body lacks an alpha system. So, when we find outfits that support or fit TMP we feel compelled to share them with our readers.
& Stuff...Everleyback
Though Lune~Bleue did not include a mesh specifically for TMP, the HourGlass tank & skirt mesh worked perfectly.  Unfortunately, none of the coats concealed the TMP arms.
& Stuff...Everleynecklace
Everley’s necklace is the Womenstuff gift from Zuri Jewelry.  The necklace has a color change menu for the metal, gems, and large heart.  Zuri Jewelry’s mainstore also has free gifts for members of MLM, SLF&O, FabFree, Maitrya Gifts Sales & News.  Simply wear your tags to add a few lovely new pieces to your virtual jewelry box.
& Stuff...Ionafront
The last model is the ever versatile Iona.  Iona wears the Maitreya Lara mesh body.  The Frosty outfit fits the mesh bodies supported perfectly.

Here is the boot and sock closeup.  Both items are non-rigged for easy adjustment.

Happy 2018! It’s a new year filled with fantastic new freebies. So, let’s get down to business.

Today Carla is modeling a matched set from Emerald Couture. This great little number is currently free for the taking. It comes sized to fit Slink & Maitreya along with 5 Fitmesh sizes & an alpha for standard avatars. The stocking/boots are sized for SlinkH, SlinkP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and Maitreya. Not only is Emerald Couture’s group free to join, but they also have 4 lucky chairs and Men’s clothing too!

The black chair Carla is posing with is a fun marketplace freebie that can be found in Irrie’s Dollhouse store.  The Pose Chair comes with 5 adjustable poses, is copy/mod, and has a LI of 2.

RaDeX DesiGn has put out several new hairstyles on their group gifts wall.  Carla is modeling the Juliiet hairstyle. Juliiet comes with a HUD offering several colors.  Best of all, the RaDeX DesiGn group is free to join.

The December Necklace is a gift in alba fashion’s marketplace store.  This is a fun little necklace that is copy/mod which allows the wearer to put a picture of their choice on the pendant.

Capping off the ensemble is a lovely little faux fur rigged mesh stole.  During the photo shoot several members of Team All Spiffed Up felt the outfit needed a little something extra.  After a quick session of brainstorming we put together the ASU stole, which can be found at the All Spiffed Up headquarters in-world. Simply drop by and have a little warmth on us.  Enjoy!

In a hurry to get out and about in SL?   We’ve got a no-brainer outfit guaranteed to slash your dressing time today!  Simply teleport over to R&R Swag, join their group and grab the Meadow Outfit (white).

The Meadow Outfit comes complete with top, pants, sandals, necklace and bracelet.  Meadow sizes include most of the various mesh bodies along with standard sizes.  The sandals are sized for Slink feet only.

The embroidered details are a charming touch.

The sweet jewelry is non-rigged making positioning quite easy.

Today’s featured hair is a fun throwback to the 80s found in Analog Dog’s current freeball.

The eyes are a great group gift from Avi-Glam.  They come in 8 shades with your choice of either standard system eyes or a mesh set with a color changing HUD.

And…for everyone out there that has yet to change over to a mesh head, we’ve got a nice standard skin from Mother Goose’s.  Yes, Mother Goose’s is still in world!  Better yet, they still have 2 pillars worth of fast changing Lucky Boards.  No group join necessary.

Personally, I love the mesh bodies. But, I have yet to adopt a mesh head.  The nice thing about not using a mesh head is that all of your fun old style skins can be worn with your mesh body.

What?  Wait you say… you can’t put those old skins on your nice new mesh body unless the company makes appliers for you.   Yes that is true, but you don’t need specialty appliers.  Simply wear the skin with the face you like, layer on all the extra makeup you love, and then use your mesh body’s skin hud and match the body’s skin tone to your face.  No one will ever know the difference.

If that sounds like something that appeals to you, then I highly recommend popping over to Mother Goose’s and picking up a bunch of the Lucky Board skins for yourself.  Who knows how long these old skins will be available.

Rounding out our ensemble is a lovely pair of gladiator style sandals that come boxed with the Meadow Outfit.  These sandals are quite nice, and highly detailed.

Greedy On

Looking for something to wear to your weekly Greedy Greedy game? We found the perfect casual outfit at Legendaire. The Riley Outfit covers all the basics in a single box: shirt, skirt, boots, and a belt that is not pictured.

Everything except the boots comes in 5 standard sizes with matching alphas and also fitted sizes for Slink and Maitreya bodies. The boots were designed for Slink feet.

Greedy On back
Legendaire is extremely generous with their gifts. There are two gifts at the door for anyone who visits. A third gift is for members of SLF&O. Then there are over 10 free gifts for Legendaire group members. Thanks Legendaire, we love the goodies!

Today’s model, Carla, is wearing the free Ava Shape from Curves Shapes and Skins. The Ava Shape is included in both the female mesh head gifts.

Greedy On belly
Carla’s Peek-a-boo midriff looked a bit bare so we went hunting for a piercing in the marketplace. We found this fun rainbow piercing at Stuffery.

Carla’s skin and hair are group gifts from 7 Deadly S{k}ins and Venus Mesh Hair.

All of the jewelry and eyes are great marketplace freebies.

ASU - KeepCalm gift
Just in case you were wondering: How did team All Spiffed Up choose this outfit out of all the other freebies at Legendaire to blog? Simple, we love the hipster cat! A few years ago one of our team members found hipster cat and made it into a Greedy poster.

The minute Carla modeled the t-shirt the vote was unanimous we’d do a Greedy Greedy post. We’ve boxed up the poster in three sizes as a gift for our lovely readers. The poster is double sided, with one side set to full bright. So stop by the All Spiffed Up headquarters and pick up your August gift!

Almost the Whole Enchilada

The Whole Enchilada

Happy weekend!  Today we have a great quick and easy ensemble for you.  Outfits in a box are the best way to satisfy your need for speed and new clothing in one shot.

I absolutely love it when I open a box that has garments, shoes, and accessories that combine in a pleasing manner to make a great outfit.  Thanks to Hilly Haalan’s generous group gifts, I dressed Iona in record time.

Hilly Haalan’s boxed outfits are a cut above.  Not only does the designer give a complete outfit, but the outfit’s mesh items fit 5 standard sizes, Hourglass, Maitreya,  Physique, Belleza, TMP, Slink, Freya, Isis, and Venus.  Best of all, the Hilly Haalan group is free to join.
TWE - HHshoes

The last notable item is Iona’s hair.  Analog Dog is one of my favorite hair stylists in SL.  They have great hair, even greater sales, participate in an annual advent calendar, and always have a freeball packed with hair for anyone observant enough to mouse over the items in the BBQ area. No need to join a group.  Simply right-click on the giant soap bubble and buy the freeball for 0L.
