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!

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.

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.

| OUTFIT |Nala Designs.Fresh Cass Purple – for mesh bodies (GG/free)
| TATTOO |SL Marketplace.Isuka Tattoos.Illuminati tattoo – Classic layers/Slink/Omega Appliers(free)

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.

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!
