After a day dominated by tanning lotion and coastal breezes you’ll need to pop into Alli & Ali for a quick comb out.  Luckily for us, Alli & Ali’s free Easter Hunt gifts are still dotted around the store.  There are 10 relatively easy to find Easter baskets filled with fun hairstyles.  The Unicorn HUD V.2 is filled with so many awesome shades it was hard to pick one to model.

Sometimes finding free accessories can be a challenge.  Today I decided to visit a store I haven’t been to in years:  Dark Mouse.  I found this sweet bow necklace gift on the main counter.  It comes in 4 colors, and is free for all store shoppers – no group join required!   Ramping up Dark Mouse’s freebielicious appeal are four luckyboards.   For those of you with Lindens burning a hole in your virtual pockets, there are scads of cute extremely low priced (25L) items to be had.

I added Breathe’s stylish, but not overly dressy, Choko heels to polish off the look.  The colors featured in the gift HUD are perfect for spring and summer attire.  As an added benefit, the HUD separates the heels into three color zones allowing for tons of combinations.  Simply join Breathe’s free group to make these lovely sandals your very own.

Until we meet again, happy shopping!

It’s So Easy

HAIR |SL Marketplace.Alli&Ali Designs Hair.Invincible Hair (FUCTIONAL DEMO) – men's dark brown fade (free) 
| OUTFIT |The Free Dove.Suna Design.Kim Outfit – Dress/Heels/Necklace Maitreya/Slink/Belleza/TMP/5 standards(NO alpha) (GG/free)

I love hassle free shopping!  Nothing tickles me more than opening a box packed with a complete outfit.  Yesterday I visited The Free Dove and found the Kim outfit.  Kim comes with a sexy little dress, strappy heels, and a mesh necklace.  If tomato red is one of your colors, then this dress is for you!

Today’s featured hair is the Invincible functional demo from Alli & Ali.  Invincible is actually a rigged mesh man’s hairstyle.  The hairline has a wide widow’s peak that I chose to minimize by wearing a dark hairbase.  From the front Invincible simply looks like a unisex style.  However, when viewed from the back, the gap between a female’s body and the flowing hair is a dead giveaway that it was rigged for men.

That gap is not necessarily a bad thing.  Rigged men’s long hairstyles offer the perfect workaround for females desirous of wearing long hair with bulky coats and hoodies.  I always recommend wearing the bulking item you’d like your hair to flow over, then trying rigged male demos.  This way you’re able to check if the fit will work for you without wasting your Lindens.

I almost forgot to mention that both the dress, and the heels are sized for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP mesh bodies.  The heels are sized for high feet only.

Enjoy the quick change!

Warmer longer days demand pink.  Pink socks, pink bikinis, pink hair, and of course the quintessential pink jumpsuit!  Thanks to Seniha Originals, this dreamy pink jumpsuit can be yours without reaching for your virtual wallet.   Seniha spoils their group members with lots of high quality gifts, several luckyboards, and also supports a few shopping groups.  It’s hard to believe this group is free to join.

The Zoe jumpsuit fits like a glove!

To finish off today’s look, I paired the outfit with another functional demo from Alli&Ali’s marketplace store, and a copy/mod necklace gift from Sweet Thing.  Though they are hard to see, Sevyn East contributed a fun set of heels via The Free Dove.

Until next time, enjoy the pink.

Today’s hair is yet another functional demo from Alli&Ali’s marketplace store.  The store is packed with all sorts of free goodies.  If you find you’re having difficultly isolating the freebies, simply refine your search terms by setting the price from zero to zero.

ASU - Springshoe

Finishing off the outfit is a classically sexy pair of heels from Ava Design.  The Fay heels come in two shades, black and red, and are sized to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet. The free group join fee paired with a nice supply of past gifts is bound to make you smile.

Happy stammering everyone!

 

I’ve Been Scandalized!

| SHOES|Scandalize.Graci Heels – 11 color HUDs for solid or embroidered Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)

…in the very best way possible.

Scandalize has temporarily set their group join fee to 0 Lindens.  So, for those of you that are not members, now is a great time to join.  Scandalize is notorious for the quality and quantity of their group gifts.   Even if you had to pay the normal 100 Linden join fee, their gift area offers so many goodies, you’d get your money’s worth in one visit to the store.

I’ve put together a quick preview of a few items currently available in their group gift area.  Hopefully they will entice you to slip Scandalize into one of your coveted group slots.  Remember, the items modeled here are just the tip of the iceberg.  Many more fantastic gifts await you in-world.

There’s even several somethings for lingerie lovers.

And if that’s not enough, the group gift area also has a row of recently updated lucky boards.  The items are nice enough that teleporting into the sim may be a bit challenging.  I recommend joining the group off-sim to make sure you get in while the fee is 0L.  (Scandalize group join link)

Enjoy.

Spring Floral

HAIR|SL Marketplace.Alli&Ali Hair.Madeline – Dark Mahogany rigged (free)
| DRESS|Beautiful Dirty Rich.Unforgettable Dress – HUD w/12 prints, 12 solids, lace & grommet options, + color picker Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)
| SHOES|Lemur Store.Alina Sandals – 2 colors Maitreya/Belleza (GG/free)

If you’ve got unresolved floral fantasies, then a quick teleport to Beautiful Dirty Rich may solve your springtime woes.  The Unforgettable Dress is an absolute knockout!  It has an extensive HUD with 12 prints, 12 solids, lace/bow/grommet/materials options, and a tint picking system.  All the possibilities contained in a single garment make the Unforgettable Dress your spring must have outfit.

You may have noticed I set the materials options above to bold.  Materials on is the Unforgettable Dress’s default state.  Personally, I don’t enjoy seeing nice cotton t-shirt type textures that would normally have a matte finish sporting a forced materials shine.  To enjoy that natural cotton knit finish simply click the X near Materials on the HUD.  **Remember with the default state as on, you’ll need to click the materials off every time you change the main dress fabric.** 

ASU - Spring2back

Here’s a nice view of the back.  I love a modest neckline combined with an open back. Notice the complementary rolled edging.  Thanks Beautiful Dirty Rich for the great gift!

Pop over to Lemur to get today’s heels.  They come in 2 shades, and are sized for Maitreya and Belleza feet.  Fear not Slink ladies, your feet should easily fit into the Belleza model.  Our model’s Slink compatible feet fit into the shoes quite well.

The brunettes in the crowd will love the Madeline functional demo from Alli&Ali.  This rigged beauty comes in a rich dark mahogany shade.  Simply click the marketplace link to get your new do.

Until next time, shop happy!

Daffodils at every turn can only mean one thing:  Spring is here!  To celebrate the change in seasons I’ve put together a fun lighthearted look.  Best of all, today’s model could be you.  That’s right, everything including the Bento rigged mesh body is free.

I’m going to break with tradition, and start by talking about the shoes. Usually I start my commentary at the head and work my way down the body ending with the shoes.  However, these lovelies could disappear at any moment.  So, if you like them I suggest you stop reading and teleport to the Ace Event ASAP!  The event has officially closed, and the ban lines have gone up.  But, the gift is still out.  You can teleport over, cam in, join the group, get the gift, and run right back here to finish reading the blog.

Today’s dress from LSR Moda is a special treat for anyone wearing an Altamura body.   The Sexy Maira gift set includes mesh models for Altamura, Maitreya, Freya, and Hourglass.  The dress fits Altamura bodies perfectly with no need to use the alpha system whatsoever!

ASU - Happy Spring piercing

All of this outfit’s jewelry are marketplace freebies.  The Think Pink gift set from Robbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos is simply fabulous.  As an added benefit the items are copy mod, which makes tinting an extra option.  I subtlety changed the shade of the sunglasses to better compliment the dress tone.

ASU - Happy Spring face

I love the Rita hair from Alli&Ali!  This is another one of the many functional demo’s available in their marketplace store.  The pastel unicorn colorway epitomizes spring’s essence.   I can’t help but smile every time I wear it.

Happy Spring Equinox.

 


FYI – Today’s “look” could be you.  Everything in this post from the mesh body, it’s shape, the head, and slink compatible feet plus the clothing is 100% free thanks to the generosity of today’s featured designers.

I’ve got to admit, I love it when designers package a complete outfit tidily into one gift box.  Don’t get me wrong, finding freebies and creating new looks is definitely an obsession for all of us at All Spiffed Up.  However, every so often it’s simply nice to just open a box, wear its contents, and hit the grid.  For me, it’s the Second Life version of taking a day off from bed making.

Thanks to Nala Designs we can all have a lazy dress day in a brand new outfit.  The box includes the fringe halter, jeans, heels, and necklace.  The skinny jeans are sized for classic, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP bodies.  The halter comes with a fitmesh and Slink Physique model, plus 5 standard sizes.  The heels are sized for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

This outfit can be found in the far right corner of the store.  It is a gift for Fabulously Free in Second Life group members, so you’ll need to join the free group.  Nala supports many other free shopping groups.  The shopping group gifts are dotted around the store, one in each room.

In this closeup the gold necklace included with the outfit is visible.

Today’s sassy hairstyle is a “functional demo”, or more aptly a free sample from the marketplace.  It comes in the one shade, black raspberry, and is yours to wear indefinitely.  Be sure have a lengthy browse through Alli&Ali Design’s other styles, there are lots of interesting freebies in their marketplace store.

Finish off today’s look with another marketplace freebie from Zibska.  This fantastic eyeshadow set can be worn by everyone!  The box is packed with appliers galore and system tattoo layers.

Until next time, shop happy!
