Saturday Shopping

ASU - Hunting down freebies2

OUTFIT |Seniha Originals.Briit Set – top/skirt 2 colors Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free)
| SHOES |Chic & Shoes.Joy Sandals – w/40 color HUD Slink/Maitreya (GG/free)

I thought I’d kick off the weekend with six easy to assemble outfits.  Today’s shopping trip requires four teleports, so let’s get to it!

First stop – Seniha Originals for a wonderful separates set.  The Briit set is currently Seniha’s gift to the Mesh Body Friends shopping group.  It comes in two colors sized to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies.

While at the store, be sure to join Seniha’s store group to pickup several other fantastic gifts, along with a chance to win five spring hued luckyboard selections.

| SKIRT |Seniha Originals.Briit Set – skirt 2 colors Maitreya/Slink/Belleza (GG/free) 
| SHOES |Chic & Shoes.Joy Sandals – w/40 color HUD Slink/Maitreya (GG/free)

Here’s a look at the second Briit skirt color.  I paired it with a classically styled mesh blouse I found at our second shopping destination, Shana Fashion.  It’s sized to fit most mesh bodies, and comes with a 6 color HUD.  The lighter hued color palette is perfect for Spring.  You’ll find the blouse, along with several other group gifts on the first floor.

| SHOES |Chic & Shoes.Joy Sandals – w/40 color HUD Slink/Maitreya (GG/free)

Third stop, the Virtualworx sim.  Virtualworx is home to Gaal, Vaxer, Sweet Temptations, and Chic & Shoes (C&S).  You may have noticed the lovely sandals featured in all of the outfits keep changing color.  The Joy sandals come with a generous 40 texture HUD, are sized to fit Maitreya and Slink feet, and are the current group gift at C&S.  You’ll find the sandals by teleporting up to the first floor.

From C&S, simply walk over to Sweet Temptations to make this fun pink suit your own. It comes sized for both classic and mesh avatars.  This suit is located on the back of the new release ad board.

| OUTFIT |Vaxer.Christina Gift – top/pants/boots Maitreya/Slink/Belleza/Ebody/TMP/Tonic/Classic Avatars (GG/free)

Simply walk over to Vaxer to pickup today’s final outfit.  Indy is a complete outfit in a box, consists of pants/shirt/boots, and can be worn by mesh and classic avatars.  Since the pieces are separates, they can be mixed and matched quite easily with several of the items included in previous looks to give you well over 10 different looks from today’s haul.

| EYES |Arata Shouten.Skin Fair 2019 gift – mesh eyes w/6 texture HUD 6DOO/CATWA/Genus/LAQ (free)

Though I’ve assembled six outfits, there is still one last store to visit.  Arata Shouten has generously set out their 2019 Skin Fair mesh eyes gift as a store freebie for all visitors.  These eyes have a captivating quality that enhances the look of any avatar.   The gift includes a  texture HUD plus six sets of mesh eyes sized for 6DOO, Catwa, Genus, and LAQ heads.

If you don’t have any of those mesh heads, but would like to  wear the eyes, it’s not a problem.  Since the mesh eyes are unrigged they’ll work with any mesh head or classic avatar by simply positioning/resizing in edit mode.  Classic avatars will also need to wear an eye alpha.

Until we meet again, shop happy!

Something Blue

…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.

ASU - Spring bluecovershoe

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!

Season of Pink

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.

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.

Carol G generously keeps a well stocked group gift area that is often updated with new goodies for both male and female avatars.   Today I’ve featured only 2 of the many gifts available.  If you were to buy these tattoos in Carol G’s markeplace store they would set you back 280L each.  Need I say more?

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 don’t know about you, but I’m ready for a little rest and relaxation in a nice secluded sunny patch.  Of course, we’re going to need a comfy piece of furniture and some relaxed clothing to make that happen.  So, let’s get started.

First stop, Gimme Gacha’s Imaginarium event.  Most of the designers at the event have set out a free gift for members of Gimme Gacha’s group.  The group is free to join, so you’re bound to leave with a load of fun freebies.  Our model’s hair, hair jewelry, eye makeup, slippers, and the large comfy chair can all be found at Imaginarium.

Pop over to Coco Design to pick up this cropped tank.  It comes in two shades, black and grey, and three sizes.  Alphas are also included for classic avatars.

Our last stop is Cremosas Store.  There are over 40 gifts just waiting to jump into your inventory.  The Boho Skirt #140 is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies.  Of course, this skirt is easy enough for classic avatars to wear when paired with a lower body apha.

Until next time, shop happy!

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

| 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.

This wispy, sassy bob is Iconic’s event gift.  Iconic has generously given the full fatpack including materials options and rigged plus re-sizable models.  There are so many interesting color choices you’ll find it hard to decide which to wear.  Thanks Iconic for a terrific gift!

Izzie’s Eye Blush gift is fantastic for all of you makeup wearers out there.  And, in true Izzie fashion, the gift box is packed not only with appliers, but also the system tattoo layers.  This set comes with 3 shades that offer the choice between a darker or lighter application.  Whether you favor a bold statement, or a subtle hint of color you are bound to be pleased with this gift.

ASU - ShortSassyshoe

I’ll finish off this post with a great pair of heels from The Free Dove.  Rebel Hope’s Libby heels are surprisingly versatile.  At first glance, you might get the impression they are for formal wear.  But, several of our models have added these lovelies to their inventory, and all have remarked how often they wind up wearing them when no other shoe seams to fit an outfit. So, if you wear Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, or TMP feet then you might want to make a quick run to The Free Dove for these flashy, yet stylish heels.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
