Belle Epoque’s current group gift is simply too vibrant to pass by.  The Giselle dress is fitmesh requiring a bit of tweaking using your mesh body’s own alpha system.  If  you have a detailed alpha HUD, then this dress is a keeper.

The combination of a wrap top and long pencil skirt is sexy in its simplicity.  Great job Belle Epoque.

Weekend Retreat

ASU - WeekendGetawayCOVER
Happy Saturday!
Team All Spiffed Up thought you might like to kick off your weekend with a little exercise in a lovely setting.  Of course, you’ll need the proper attire, so let’s get dressed.
The t-shirt and running shorts are the August group gift at Vive Nine.  Unlike so many group gifts that have obvious signs in the store, this gift can only be found in Vive Nine’s group notices.  So, join the group (it’s free), click the notices tab in the group, click on the August Group Gift 2018 notice, and open the attachment.  Voila, the Tami outfit is yours.
Tami is sized for mesh bodies, and has 4 color choices for the running shorts.

We found this fantastic tied-at-the-waist sweater on COCO Designs’ group gift wallCOCO Designs’ group is free to join with lots of past gifts still available.  Thanks COCO, we love this shirt!
ASU - WeekendGetawayface2
Here’s a closer look at yet another great hair we snatched off of Olive’s luckyboard wall. The Stephanie Hair Naturals comes sized for regular and bewbies with standard and streak option HUDS.  It’s not easy finding platinum blondes with depth.  Great job Olive on a wonderfully shaded hair!
Eyes up people, we’ve got makeup to discuss.  Our model Carla combines a classic head with a mesh body.  All three of today’s makeups can be found in the marketplace, are tattoo layers, and as an added bonus two of them come with mesh appliers.  Of course to make it into this post they are also free.
ASU - WeekendGetawaymani
This manicure applier set is a gift from Mani Pedi for The Free Dove.

Carla had trouble finding a pair of free sneakers for her outfit, so Team ASU put together an August 2018 sneaker and sock gift for all of our readers.  Simply pop over to the All Spiffed Up headquarters at 7th Heaven to get your gift.  The set is unrigged for easy positioning, includes an alpha for classic avatars, and has resize menus.  Enjoy!

Happy Tuesday!
After a wild week of crazy hunting and seemingly endless unpacking we’ve put together a little something special for you that requires a minimum of fuss to assemble.  In 2 teleports you’ll have a new outfit.  Add a 3rd teleport for a new hairdo.  The 4th and final teleport will give mesh body & head wearers a new skin.
ASU - SS coverback
Hilly Haalan put out 2 new group gifts yesterday.  They are lovely, for both mesh and classic avatars, and FREE.  Simply join Hilly Haalan’s free group and this beautifully textured top/skirt combo is yours.  The set includes a HUD with 10 distinct looks.  They are so nice we felt compelled to show them all.  Thanks Hilly Haalen, you made our day!

Next stop, Moda.  The Denise special edition boots are a true freebie, no group join required.  They are sized for mesh bodies, and include a color change HUD with 3 denim shades, and floral, leopard, and zebra options.

Head over to Olive for this chic variation of the classic ponytail.  The Lizzie hair in brunettes is currently one of Olive’s Lucky Board gifts.  This hair is just too fun.  Using the HUD’s streak option allows for the two-toned styling pictured above.  Stick to the main color selection for an even overall color if you prefer a more conservative look.
Olive’s Lucky Boards are free for any visitor to use, change often, and are loaded with fun styles that are often accompanied with whimsical options.  While you’re there don’t forget to slap that Midnight Mania!
ASU - SS 7DS skinfront
Mesh body and skin wearers that missed 7 Deadly s[K]ins‘ (7DS) Yoga skin gift at the May eBento round have another chance to get it in the caramel tone.  It will take a little searching at the 7DS sim and finding the sunflower, but it’s well worth the effort.  The Sunflower Hunt runs through August 25th, so you’ve got plenty of time to find this beautiful skin.

HAIR – Olive Lizzie Hair – Brunettes + Streaks HUD (lucky board/0L)

Bad to the Bone

ASU - B2Bcover
Guys, we have not forgotten you!  The Men Only Hunt (MOH) is going strong and runs through August 18th.  There are some really nice gifts to be had, so we’re just going to dive into the details.
Let’s start with the wonderful bike prop from Animosity.  It’s simply great, has lots of easy to adjust poses, and is quite possibly Team All Spiffed Up’s favorite MOH gift.
Of course trying to pick a favorite item from such a strong field of talented creators is no easy task.  Case in point:  TommyTommy is Altamura’s full body mesh avatar gift for MOH.  Our model is wearing the Tommy body, shape, and head AO found in the gift boxTommy’s chiseled face, six-pack, and honeyed skin tone is definitely a head turner.
ASU - B2B bodyfront
Here’s a closer look at Tommy and the body HUD.  Altamura’s included alpha system is simply wonderful.  The Hair button allows the wearer to toggle between the hairbase pictured above and the bald head shown below.
ASU - B2B bback & face
This form fitting grey tee is Justice’s hunt gift.  The cool shades are from Rebellion.  While hunting at Gild, we passed the group gift wall, and spied the hat and necklace.  Gild’s group is free to join so our model went home with several unexpected goodies.
ASU - B2B5th
This fun set is from Bakaboo. It is sized for both mesh and classic avatars.
ASU - B2B2nd
Three more MOH gifts.

Rest & Relaxation

ASU - R&RcoverF
Several broken nails and countless paper cuts later we’re happy to announce we’ve finally opened all of our Women Only Hunt (WOH) gifts.   The WOH runs through August 18th, so you’ve still got time to collect the goodies.
All items in today’s post except for the flip flops are WOH gifts.
ASU - R&R F&B
The dollfactory’s hunt gift is the Anne shape.  The shape was designed for Slink’s Hourglass body and Catwa’s Lona head.  If your like our model (Dutch) and don’t own either of those items you can still give the shape a try since it is copy/mod.  Dutch was able to use the body portion of the shape “as is”, but did have to make mods to the head/face numbers to get a look that worked for her mesh head. 
Though the halter top and the front tied shirt are two separate gifts from different stores, you’d swear they were made as a set.  They layer together seamlessly.
ASY&Ud-1
7 Deadly Skins gifted the Bali skin in chestnut.  The skin is Omega compatible and comes with a no-brow option!
The black flip flops are  a nice little marketplace freebie.  They come in 4 colors, and though they are packaged for mesh feet they can be worn by classic avatars.
The Mary shorts from Have Unequal have a nice embroidery color change HUD.

Yes there are many “gifts” dotted around the event, however not all are free.  Not to worry, the gifts that are free make UP! SUMMER worth a visit.
