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).**
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!

** This body is almost free. It is Altamura’s 2018 holiday gift body for the TeleportHub group. Joining the TeleportHub group costs 10L, and entitles members to loads of free gifts year round..**
| BODY |Altamura .Clodet – mesh body w/AO & alpha HUDs (TeleportHub GG/10L group join fee)
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.
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.
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!

** This body was completely free earlier this year during the WOH hunt. It is now free for members of the Altamura group. For the 2018 holiday season Altamura has reduced their group join fee to 25 Lindens.**
| BODY |Amestate .Altamura.Emanuelle – mesh body w/AO & alpha HUDs (GG/25L temporary group join fee)
| MAKEUP |Amestate .Altamura.Emanuelle lipstick – 4 colors (GG/25L temporary group join fee)
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.
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!
…and utterly delicious!
Today Team All Spiffed Up finally gets the opportunity to welcome the ever gorgeous Lady Mystic into our model pool! Freebies and Mystic don’t normally mix, but thanks to Blueberry’s fantastic new group gift, we caught her out.
The top-tied Mimi dress is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies and is packaged with the full fatpack HUD. That’s 70 different looks with the option of a built in panty.
Blueberry always adds such wonderful touches to their garments. Look at that fold detailing!
Since our blogs are all about the freebies, we were able to talk Mystic into popping over to to Livia, joining their free group, and patiently modeling two of their wonderful gifts.
The Gianna lipstick gift is for mesh heads only with appliers for Lelutka, Vista, and Omega systems.
Apologies dear readers, we experienced a little darkroom mishap in the main Gianna picture accidentally doubling one of the shades and omitting the luscious cherry red hue above.
***YIKES – while working in the darkroom for the next blog entry (Summer Nights) it was obvious that the last lipstick in the composite picture did not belong to the Gianna lipstick pack. That lovely tomato red is actually part of Livia’s Just Reds set.
Who doesn’t love a cruelty free cheetah print? The Cheetah Girl mani/pedi applier set is yet another terrific gift at Livia. Appliers included are for: Maitreya, Slink, Vista, Tuty, and Omega systems.
It would be remiss not to mention the bento ring set that is quietly stealing the scene from our manicure. Yes it was free, but “was” is the operative word. Not long ago eBento celebrated its birthday with a phenomenal gift rich round. So many designers giving gifts galore, OMG – note to self: never miss an eBento anniversary round! Meva was in attendance, their gift (Heidi Bento Rings Gold set) was one of the round’s best.
Though the Heidi Set is no longer free it is still available at Meva for a modest sum. So, for those of you who can’t live without making this set your own, here is your taxi: MEVA.
Up close and personal: Cheetah Girl’s six color options.
Mystic’s Style Card:
DRESS – Blueberry Mimi tied-front – 70 color HUD, mesh only (group gift 0L/0L to join)
LIPSTICK – Livia Gianna Set – Appliers only 8 colors (group gift 0L/0L to join)
MANI/PEDI – Livia Cheetah Girl – Appliers only 6 colors (group gift 0L/0L to join)
What could be finer than a sunny morning in the tropics? A sunny morning in the tropics with a Siamese of course! Iona went to Bipolar Kitty in search of a new outfit and walked away, grinning like a loon, with a new pet accessory. It’s definitely the little things that keep SL interesting.
How can you resist that face?… and all of that plush hand tooled Italian leather?
These sweet floral capris are one of many group gifts to be found at WellMade.
We especially like how the ties and bows detailing adds a bit of flirty charm to the outfit.
Let’s talk about the t-shirts. Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, Iona is modeling 3 different tops. Blueberry is probably one of team All Spiffed Up’s favorite stores.
The designers at Blueberry know their stuff. Their texturing is terrific.
The t-shirts modeled today are actually two separate group gifts. The green lace t-shirt is packaged with a long and short version. The pumpkin side-tied t-shirt is the October gift. Best of all, both gifts come with fantastic color changing HUDS.
Though Blueberry’s group has a modest 20L join fee, both of these gifts can be picked up by anyone for free. Simply stand in front of the group gift wall and hover your mouse over the gifts. When your mouse changes to the pay icon, those are the gifts anyone can buy for 0L.
Iona’s hair can be found in the current freeball at Analog Dog.
The necklace and eyes are marketplace finds.
These babies are just sooooooooooo yummy! KC Couture steals our breath away once again with these unique wedge heels. As always, the HUD included with these babies allows the user to customize the main leather, the wedge, and the metal. Thank you KC, thank you very much!
