…Sparkly, and new.

Here’s a lovely shiny dress perfect for outdoor spring music festivals, walks along the boardwalk, and afternoon tea.  The Pepper mesh dress is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and classic avatars.  This dress, along with a sizable cache of goodies, can be found at !Soul.  The location I’ve landmarked for you is a freebie room, so everything costs 0 Lindens if you’re a  member of the !Soul group.  Did I mention there is no group join fee?

The surprisingly flirty back gives you a chance to show off all those hours spent in the gym.

Today’s hair is one of the many free luckyboard  styles available at Olive Hair.  The Cutie style is perfect when you want to show off your back, comes in an awesome fatpack, and is a “must have” item for long hair lovers.  Olive’s luckyboards and midnight mania are free for everyone to play.

Visit AvaWay, join their free group, and walk away with no less than three new pieces of jewelry.   The Twins Set is copy/mod and unrigged, which allows wearers to make extra copies and layer the pieces which is precisely what our model did.

Though the Kenya boots were featured in my last post, unfortunately they were hidden under the jumpsuit.  These boots are so nice, I thought they needed a chance to shine.  The included eight color HUD allows for lots of customization. The only drawback is that they are sized only for Slink’s hourglass/physique bodies.  However, that doesn’t mean you can’t try them on a body with Slink compatible feet.  Our model is wearing Altamura’s Juliet body,  and as you can see, the model for Slink classic worked quite well.

Happy Shopping!

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.

ASU - Happy Springback

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’m not sure I’d stand there gawking up when shadows like that paint the ground.  Hopefully, it’s nothing more then a couple of Warbugs engaged in a dogfight.  If not, I hope our model knows how to run in heels.

Speculations aside, today’s look could be you.  Everything from our model’s head to her her Slink compatible feet is free!  Assembly is as easy as six teleports, five free group joins, and a few clicks in Second Life’s Marketplace.

Here’s a closer look at the Square Chunk Jewelry Set from the marketplace.  It comes with earrings and a necklace in two shades.  Each piece includes a resize on touch menu.

I love the detailing on the Jasmine heels.  These heels are sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh feet.  They are currently available at The Free Dove, and come in eight fantastic floral prints.  You can also view the purple iris variation here.

Romeo & Juliet

OUTFIT|Ebento .Altamura.Romeo & Juliet – 2 Separate gifts - each a FULL Mesh body (free)

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Run over to Ebento to get these fabulous mesh bodies with fully loaded HUDs.   They will only be available today, February 14th.   To receive Romeo join the eBento Lovers group, then pay 1L (it will be reimbursed).

Juliet is free for Altamura group members.  Joining Altamura’s group cost 50L.  Folks it is totally worth joining this group!  Juliet is gorgeous and fully functional.  If you don’t have a mesh body this is your chance to get a great body that would normally cost close to 5,000 Lindens.

I can’t say enough nice things about Altamura.  Thanks guys from making our Valentine’s Day!

It’s true, I’ll admit it.  I’m just as crazy as the next girl ’bout a sharp dressed man!  If you’re a male avatar that favors a slim legged shape then this suit is for you.  Of course if suits aren’t your thing, you’ll find lots of other great articles of clothing at Gabriel’s 1 Linden sale.

The suit comes in 4 sizes: XS, S, M, L/XL plus an alpha for classic avatars.

Here’s a closer look at the detailing.

Our model popped over to the Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios sim and found these dress shoes.  They come in brown, which really didn’t work with this suit.  Luckily, they are modifiable, so Cabal added a light blue tint to turn them black allowing for the detailed lighting to remain.  Keep us runnin’ guys!

Prepare yourselves for another wild fit of box opening.  Designer’s Showcase is celebrating their 8th anniversary round!  And, birthday/anniversary rounds mean loads of great free gifts.

ASU - Glitterdress

I was so blown away by JUMO’s dazzlingly shiny silver gown that I almost missed the  sumptuous grey stole tucked into the box.  I know, hard to believe but true.  The photo shoot was completed, and I was double checking the box for a possible alpha when I noticed a fitmesh + 5 standard sized models with the word fur in their descriptions.

OMG! It’s sooooooo FLUFFY!  Did I mention no animals, virtual or otherwise, were harmed in the creation of this stole?  The textures on this entire gift are outstanding.  Thanks JUMO for such an amazing gift.

ASU - Glitterxtra

The featured earrings and eyes can also be found at Designer’s Showcase.  The mesh eyes are a gift from Dulce Secrets.  They come in 3 shades and are boxed with system eyes, mesh eyes, and Catwa/Lelutka appliers.

If you wear Maitreya/Slink/Belleza feet be sure to visit Hilly Haalan for today’s heels.  The 30 shades packed into their HUD make them a must have item.


FYI – Today’s “look” could be you.  Everything in this post from the jewelry to the mesh body, it’s shape, the head, and slink compatible feet are 100% free.  Thanks to the generosity of Altamura, transitioning to mesh couldn’t be easier.

With over a hundred free gifts just waiting to be snatched up it’s no wonder I’m still shopping & hopping!  The Shop & Hop event definitely requires more than one visit to gather all the fantastic gifts offered.

ASU - Casually Festiveback

To add this tastefully sequined gray sweater to your wardrobe you’ll have to pry yourself away from Shop & Hop, and teleport to Hilly Haalan.  Join the store’s free group, then saunter over to the gift room to pick up this beauty.  It comes in black and gray, and can be worn by both classic and mesh avatars.  It adds just enough sparkle to keep the festive flow of the holidays twinkling though to the New Year.

ASU - Casually Festiveface4

This lovely lady is my favorite Altamura gift body to date.  Clodet’s mostly oval jawline coupled with ultra glamorous eyelashes and the subtlest icy pink lips are simply stunning!  If you favor a light sallow skin color, Clodet is more than worth the 10 Linden group join fee for the TeleportHub.

Cubic Cherry’s Nemune mesh eyes look great on Clodet.  Nemune eyes come in 8 shades plus they have additional shadows and Omega applier HUDs.

Fans of pigtail hairstyles will love this fatpack from bonbon.  The style comes with an additional candy bow HUD (not pictured) that allows the wearer to show or hide the ribbons.  Until next time, shop happy!

I have three little words to inspire you to get over to the Shop & Hop Event before it ends:  Blueberry store credit!  That’s 250 Lindens worth of a store credit to be exact.  It’s the perfect amount to add an item in your favorite Blueberry color to your wardrobe.

ASU - Great Giftsfb

This is Blueberry’s Laura outfit that comes boxed as two separates.  Separates are especially nice to have when dressing non Belleza/Maitreya/&Slink bodies.  Today’s model is wearing Emanuelle, a past WOH gift body from Altamura.  While dressing she found the dress sized for Maitreya fit the lower body best.  However, the cropped sweater sized for Slink fit her chest and shoulders best.  So, don’t be afraid to mix and match mesh clothing to get the best look on bodies not supported by your favorite designers.

Zip over to NYNE to pickup this fun winter hairdo.  Simply join their free group to get the Cicil hair.  It comes with a nice color picker HUD, allowing for virtually unlimited colors.  Also, if you wander to the back of the store you’ll find several shelves of past gifts.

Finish off this look with a wearable demo from Duh! found in the marketplace.  The boots can be resized, and positioned to achieve a perfect fit.  Happy shopping everyone!

With so many wonderful free events going on across the grid it’s easy to miss out on a load of excellent goodies.  I’ve been so focused on checking out advent calendars I almost missed a giant winter shopping event organized by the Lindens.

The Shop & Hop Event has 100 stores spread out over 5 sims:

And, as you may have guessed, each store has set out one completely free (no group join required) gift.  Shop & Hop runs through January 4, 2019.  So, gather your shopping bags together and shop happy!

ASU - XMAS event face

Here’s a closeup of a few of the Shop & Hop jewelry gifts and the gift from Vanity Hair.

Though it will cost you 25 Lindens to join the group, this is Altamura’s Leila (12 Days of Chrismas) group gift.  She is quite lovely as is (pictured above), however she’s also Omega compatible.  A quick visit to Omega Solutions to purchase the Omega Applier HUD for 99 Lindens will leave you with lovely bento rigged mesh head that only cost 124 Lindens total.

Leila, does not come with a HUD controller, but it’s not necessary.  Altamura supplies an easy to follow notecard with links for free eyes and free applier clearing HUDs that make changing skins a snap.

ASU - XMAS faceapps

Above is a picture of Leila wearing applier skins from 7 Deadly Skins.  I was a bit skeptical when I realized Leila didn’t come with a HUD interface of her own.  But, after working with her for literally no more than 10 minutes, I realized a HUD simply isn’t necessary.  And, in some ways it’s a lot easier adding your makeup without using a cumbersome HUD.

Let’s finish off with a closeup of Momento’s Shop & Hop shoe gift.  Happy Christmas Eve everyone.  Enjoy!
