| OUTFIT |Beyond.Laura Pink – 2 colors Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)
| SHOES |COCO Designs Slide Sandals – Beige Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)

Worry not, Hair Fair 2019 has plenty of stylish gifts to chase those tangles away!  This year’s fair runs through September 1st, which gives even the busiest of avatars time to pop over and revel in a bit of silky goodness.

Since not many of the shopping sims I frequent are naturist friendly, I thought it might be wise to find some clothing to go along with the new coiffures.

HAIR |Hair Fair 2019 .Alli&Ali.Carthage Hair – browns HUD w/resize (free)
| OUTFIT |Black Opium.Silvana Set – fatpack/HUD Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)
| SHOES |COCO Designs Slide Sandals – Beige Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)

On a recent visit to Scandalize, I explored the other stores sharing the sim.  I was pleasantly surprised to learn that three of the stores’ groups are free to join, and offer past gifts.  That’s a whole lot of free outfits just waiting to happen.

The Silvana Set consists of the 3/4 sleeve tee and stretch pants pictured above.  The items are separates, so can easily mix and match with your existing inventory.  Best of all, the set comes with a fabulous fatpack HUD that offers solid, ombre, and patterned options.  Thanks Black Opium for such a versatile gift!

FYI:  The Carthage hairstyle’s out-of-box color is this lovely platinum blonde which will be lost to you once you use the included browns HUD.  If you’d like to keep the blonde in your inventory for wearing, simply copy the mesh and place it in a new folder safely away from the version you intend to use the color HUD with.

Finishing off today’s looks are a wonderful pair of sandals from COCO Designs.  These comfy yet stylish sandals are COCO’s newest addition to their group gift wall.  Simply join COCO’s free group to immediately experience the joys of membership.

OUTFIT |uber...*EVERYTHING* (free) *excluding mesh body & eyes*

Uber rounds always rock, but uber birthday rounds – well those are just super cool.  Let’s talk gifts:  they are free, no group join is required, run the gamut of categories,  and are so plentiful you’ll need to enchant your shopping bag with a Capacious Extremis charm.

Uber’s 5th birthday round ends August 22nd, so you’ll need to get a wiggle on to partake in all this lovely uberlisciousness.
ASU - Uber2019back
Though I always focus on apparel, there are loads of great decor and animation gifts to be had.  I even managed to use a gift dance and pose in the photo shoot.

Long nail lovers are going to flip for La Baguette’s Super Long mesh nail gift.  These Bento rigged beauties come with an extensive color change HUD, and are perfect for anyone wearing a gift mesh body lacking nail change options.
ASU - Uber2019face
Here’s a closer look at Tone 2’s eyeshadow gift.  It comes with appliers and a system layer for classic avatars.

Normally I’d wax on about how much I love all of the items modeled today.  However, since the clock ticking down, I’m simply going to name off the designers that made today’s look possible:  Tone 2, MINA, NamiiChu, Mossu, Bombshell, BONDI, RAMA, Dappa, Yummy, [YA], Mangula, La Baguette, Paragon, FOXCITY.

Tick, tick, tick… Happy shopping everyone!

It’s difficult for a guy with no Lindens to dress stylishly in SL.  The recent Shop & Hop Winter Event is a perfect example of just how hard it is to find free gifts for male avatars.  After much cajoling from our female staff, one of our male models finally relented and went to Shop & Hop yesterday.   He walked through 3 sims before he found a male gift.
Needless to say, male hotness in SL costs. But, thanks to Gabriel’s awesome 1 Linden sale it wont take much to get your man L’Homme worthy!
ASU - Almost Freeback
Cabal spent a whopping 2 Lindens for today’s outfit.  The boots can be found on Gabriel’s group gift wall.  Joining the group is free which is always a bonus.
ASU - Almost Freecomp
Here’s a closeup of the coat set Cabal bought.  The coat is a static color, but the shirt and scarf have their own texture change HUDs, and there is an added sweater option for layering.  Cabal put together a few combinations to show off some of the the wonderful looks that can be made with this set.
ASU - Almost Freecar
Of course we can’t have a post without an actual free item.  Thanks to Billionaire Motors we have something you’ll love to zip around SL on:  The Blade Baked White his & hers motorcycle set.  Not a bike fan?  No worries, there are also 2 other completely free gifts next to the Blade set.  So, teleport over and make yourself happy.

New All Spiffed Up Gift

ASU Gold Sneaker Gift
Team All Spiffed Up has put out a new freebie for our readers. We introduced the ASU Sneaker Gold in our Pump It Up! post.  Though we textured the sneaker for Everley, we thought it would be fun to highlight the sneaker’s unisex appeal.
We caught up with Mr Mikey UK at a rehearsal and were pleased beyond belief to find him wearing our sneakers. Unfortunately the only freebie Mr Mikey UK has on is our sneakers.  For this post that will do quite nicely.  Gotta love a man with a flair for fashion!
So grab your friends and pop on over to 7th Heaven for a bit of rest and relaxation, and of course a few gifts on us.
