Spring Floral

ASU - Spring2cover

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!

HAIR|Lamb .Fate – color HUD fatpack (GG/free)
| TOP|Beautiful Dirty Rich .Breathin' sweater – w/24 texture HUD w/materials & tint picker (GG/free)
| SKIRT |Beautiful Dirty Rich .Let Haters Hate skirt – w/10 texture HUD for classic/Maitreya/Slink/Belleza/Tonic (free)
| BOOTS |SL Marketplace .D'eVil.Via Boots – 2 HUDS for latex and leathers w/tint & materials options for Maitreya (free)

Here’s a chance to add a bit of that naughty school girl look to your wardrobe.  Simply pop over to Beautiful Dirty Rich (B.D.R.), join their free group, and help yourself to this outfit.  The sweater and skirt are separates, so you’ll have to click on two boxes.  But, my guess is, you’ll do a bit more clicking since B.D.R. also has past group gifts out.
Today’s featured hair is another one of the gifts currently available at Lamb.  Fate is a full fatpack which is always a bonus, and the group is free to join.
ASU - microminiback
Here’s a closer look at the micro-mini.  It’s so mini, finding panties to wear with it is definitely a challenge.  Our model cheated and just use her alpha system.
These delisciously high though boots are a marketplace freebie from D’eVil.  I’ve actually seen these boots in the marketplace and passed them by on several occasions.  After convincing today’s model to try them, I’m actually sorry it took me so long to pick them up.  They come with to great HUDS, one for latex and the other for leather.   The HUDs include slider controls for glossiness and environment effects, plus a tint picker.  Basically, you can create any color you’d like to wear making these boots a definite “must have” item.
Until next time, shop happy!

ASU - Shop&Hop3coverFinal
HAIR |Sintiklia .Sheba slicked back – w/color + hat HUD (free)
JACKET |Shop & Hop Event .Blueberry.250L credit – Minnie coat in pixie w/t-shirt HUD (199L/free w/credit)
HAT |Beautiful Dirty Rich .Holidays Little Diva – color + tint HUD (GG/free)
PANTS |SL Marketplace .Delizio.classic jeans – classic jeans w/appliers for mesh (free)
SHOE |The Free Dove .LBB.Kenji boots – resize menu + color HUD (GG/free)
Only 2 days left to Shop & Hop!  This gift rich winter shopping event only runs through January 4th, so it’s time to get your shop on.
Our classic model, Gabby, decided pop over to Blueberry and redeem her event store credit.  She chose the Minnie coat (shade pixie).  Minnie is sized for mesh bodies only, so there is no alpha for classic avatars in the box.  Of course, that does not mean classic avatars can’t wear this.  It simply means you have to be a bit creative by borrowing alphas you already have in your inventory.
Or, you can do what Gabby did, and simply wear one of the included meshes for a curvier body type such as Venus or Hourglass.  Going curvy will usually solve most fit problems.  Plus, you have the added joy of going voluptuous without having to purchase the body.  **WARNING – wearing  curvy mesh clothing on a classic avatar is a virtual Wonder Spanx – the effect ends when the coat comes off (wink, wink).** 
ASU - Shop&Hop3back
Today’s hair is one of several free (no group join required) gifts at Sintiklia.  The way the hair flows seamlessly over the mesh hooded jacked is simply great.  The Sheba hair is designed to be a hat hair, and comes with the option of making the included hat invisible so that you can wear any hat of your choosing.
Gabby decided to wear the hat from B.D.R.’s Little Diva outfit originally modeled here.  Little Diva’s HUD includes a tint picker for creating infinite color choices.  Gabby had no problem tinting the hat to match the shade of her coat.
I wanted to have our model pair this outfit with a nice pair of UGG styled winter boots.  Unfortunately, none of our team was able to track down a current freebie.  Cabal, yesterday’s model, overheard our dilemma and proceeded to bust up laughing.  He just kept looking down at his boots and roaring.  And, that’s when the light bulb exploded.  Ladies, the Kenji boots may be in the men’s section of The Free Dove, but that doesn’t mean we can’t wear them too!  Shop happy peeps!

Our model used her mesh body and head HUDs to tint her skin green.  She also turned up the shine to achieve the fantasy look. Don’t despair if you’re a classic avatar, we’ve included a marketplace link to a free tint-able body tattoo layer for you to go green too.
