Some Like it Hot

ASU - Some Like it Hotcover
What could be better than a gorgeous cruelty free sable coat? … A gorgeous FREE sable coat that comes in so many fabulous shades it makes you wish for an endless winter!

This lovely fur is just one of the many items available for free in the The Shops from The Mesh Project.  Before you shout out “I don’t wear the TMP body!” keep in mind this is a coat and it will likely fit whatever body you wear.

To support this claim Team All Spiffed Up asked our model, Valentina, to pickup a few free items from The Shops to try on her Altamura body.  The coat was an easy fit, looks great from all angles, and is definitely worth acquiring.

The top, skirt, and boots required heavy use of Altamura’s alpha system.  So, if you have a body with a great alpha system, like the challenge of making clothing work, then by all means rush over to The Shops for some fantastic freebies!

These lovely drop earrings are a subscriber gift at Zuri Jewelry.

Valentina’s fun hairstyle is one of the many group gifts currently available at NYNE. NYNE tends to package their hairstyles with a rigged and unrigged mesh version.  When you change and tweak your avatar as much as most of the members of Team All Spiffed Up it is especially nice to have hair that can resize.  As always, NYNE’s group is free to join.  Thanks NYNE for keeping SL fashionable!

The Shops Gone Wild

ASU - TheShopsGoneWild cover
It’s time to get your click on!  The Mesh Project’s Shops is having a huge sale.  HUGE as in 100% OFF on all items sold in the Boutique.  That’s right, all clothing, jewelry, handbags, and footwear are free.

This sale is great news for anyone wearing the TMP Beta Free mesh body.  Since the free TMP body has no alpha system, it can be tricky trying to find clothing that fits properly.  So, set aside an hour or two and stock up on essentials tailor made for the TMP Beta Free mesh body.

Our TMP model, Everley, is wearing the Classic Boyfriend Tank, Classic Boyfriend Jeans, Classic Gem Ring, Canvas Studded Sneakers, and the Baciaga Classic Leather Bag.

There are so many lovely color choices to choose from!  Even better, notice how perfectly the top rests over the jeans.

Here’s a closeup of the ring.  Though it can take awhile to become comfortable with using The Mesh Project’s HUD, once it is learned customizing items becomes easy.  This ring allows for changing the metal and the gemstone.

Today’s hair is a newer NYNE group gift.  The Nissa hair comes with a fantastic color picker HUD that allows for recoloring of the hair and bow.  The creators at NYNE are both talented and generous with group gifts.  With a free group join fee, trying a new hairstyle couldn’t be easier!

Forest Nymph

Spring is finally here!  The sun is shining, and lavender is in the air.  To celebrate spring we’ve got a selection of freebies to brighten your avatar’s wardrobe.

This flirty little dress is a Lucky Board gift available at MH Unique Design.  It’s mesh, comes in 6 colors, and 5 standard sizes.  In addition to MH Unique Design’s wall of Lucky Boards there are several bagged group gifts to choose from.  Add to that the store group is free to join, and everyone is guaranteed to leave the store with a new outfit or two!

Today’s sexy voluminous hair is a gift from Firelight that can be found at the Portuguese orientation sim: Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios. The Portia hair comes with two color HUDs, one for the basic color and another color tint HUD. The tint HUD allowed us to come up with this fun spring green color.  Portia also comes in two sizes, normal and busty.

Though we featured Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios in our last post, Hello Valentina, the sheer amount of quality freebies concentrated in a single place certainly deserves a second mention.  Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios is a great place to visit, especially if your avatar is in need of a makeover and your Lindens have vanished.
ASU - Forest Nymph makeup
Our model Gemma decided her normally fresh faced look needed a little pizazz to set off the overall green look created by her outfit.  So, she opted for a wonderful free eyeshadow set found in the marketplace.  The set includes 5 eyeshadow colors.  They are system layers, so this is only for classic avatars.

While in the marketplace be sure to click over to Izzie’s for the Sheer Pastel Tights Easter Gift.  These stockings come in 12 fabulous shades with included appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Omega and system tattoo layers.

& Stuff…

& Stuff...LucyCover
The ‘stuff Groups SL are kicking off the new year with a flurry of freebies! If you are thinking ‘stuff Groups who, what, huh?  Don’t worry you’re not alone.  Most likely you’ll recognize this group more readily by the individual hunts they organize:  Menstuff, Womenstuff, Kidstuff, Homestuff, & Posestuff.

I know hunts can be annoyingly frustrating, BUT ‘stuff Hunts are in a class of their own.  Why we love ‘stuff Hunts:

  • The gifts are great!
  • The gifts are free (0L)
  • The hunt objects are easy to find.
  • The hunt runs from January 1st – January 31st
  • The hunt hints make sense! (for those of us having a problem finding the object)
  • The participating designers tend to be generous.  If the hunt gift is not to your liking there is an excellent chance a more interesting freebie is lurking in the store’s group gift or lucky chair area.
  • Womenstuff hint page:   Store listing, hints, & landmark page

Our first model Lucy is Team All Spiffed Up’s go to gal for hunts and bustling events.  She decided to keep today’s post simple and show off the first three items from the Womenstuff hint page plus a free hair from Radex DesiGn.
& Stuff...Lucyside
Lune~Bleue’s Womenstuff gift is this wonderful black and white winter ensemble.  The Frosty outfit comes complete with a coat, tank & skirt, and half-boots & socks. The coat and socks are separates, thus can be mixed and matched freely with other items in your inventory.

Best of all, Lune~Bleue  has considerately provided the Frosty outfit sized for both classic and mesh avatars.  Which explains why we are blogging the same outfit on three different models today.  Lucy is a classic avatar wearing an XS tank & skirt combined with a S coat. She advises wearing the coat one size larger than your tank & skirt size to prevent them from poking through the coat when moving.
& Stuff...Everleyfront
Everley wears the TMP basic free mesh body.  This body is quite lovely, but does have it’s challenges for those of us not willing to spend lindens.  The basic free body lacks an alpha system. So, when we find outfits that support or fit TMP we feel compelled to share them with our readers.
& Stuff...Everleyback
Though Lune~Bleue did not include a mesh specifically for TMP, the HourGlass tank & skirt mesh worked perfectly.  Unfortunately, none of the coats concealed the TMP arms.
& Stuff...Everleynecklace
Everley’s necklace is the Womenstuff gift from Zuri Jewelry.  The necklace has a color change menu for the metal, gems, and large heart.  Zuri Jewelry’s mainstore also has free gifts for members of MLM, SLF&O, FabFree, Maitrya Gifts Sales & News.  Simply wear your tags to add a few lovely new pieces to your virtual jewelry box.
& Stuff...Ionafront
The last model is the ever versatile Iona.  Iona wears the Maitreya Lara mesh body.  The Frosty outfit fits the mesh bodies supported perfectly.

RaDeX DesiGn has put out several new hairstyles on their group gifts wall.  Carla is modeling the Juliiet hairstyle. Juliiet comes with a HUD offering several colors.  Best of all, the RaDeX DesiGn group is free to join.

The December Necklace is a gift in alba fashion’s marketplace store.  This is a fun little necklace that is copy/mod which allows the wearer to put a picture of their choice on the pendant.

Capping off the ensemble is a lovely little faux fur rigged mesh stole.  During the photo shoot several members of Team All Spiffed Up felt the outfit needed a little something extra.  After a quick session of brainstorming we put together the ASU stole, which can be found at the All Spiffed Up headquarters in-world. Simply drop by and have a little warmth on us.  Enjoy!
