Happy October! Let’s start off the month with a costume guaranteed to please Who Framed Roger Rabbit fans. Thanks to COCO DESIGNS, we can all have our very own Jessica Rabbit experience. The luscious red sequined gown and purple suede gloves are COCO DESIGNS’ latest group gifts.
Add a nice pair of heels from Hilly Haalan’s group gift area to complete the outfit.
Next, we’ll need some dramatic eyeshadow, and glossy lipstick. Zibska’s marketplace eyeshadow gift is absolutely gorgeous, can be worn by both mesh and classic avatars, and is free.
Visit Livia to pickup the Just Reds lipstick gift. Simply join the store’s free group to get this along with several other wonderful gifts.
Finish off today’s look with another marketplace gift from Alli&Ali. The Jessica gift only comes in one shade, purple. Luckily for us, the hair is copy/mod which means a few tweaks in edit mode will create the exact color pictured above. Set the Hex color to fa1605, glow to 0.15, and check the Full Bright box to wash that purple right out of your hair.

Though there are still more red outfits that can be made from the offerings in Hilly Haalan & COCO DESIGNS’ gift areas, I’m going to end on a heart cutout ensemble perfect for Valentine’s Day.
These supple suede boots are an older style mesh coming in 3 sizes: Large, Medium, and Small with an alpha. Though made with classic avatars in mind, mesh bodied avatars that have a detailed alpha system can wear them too. Until next time, shop happy!

It’s hard to believe, but after four red outfits made from gifts currently available at Hilly Haalan & COCO DESIGNS I’m nowhere near exhausting the possibilities. Today’s outfit is a lovely body hugging lace design perfect for a romantic rendezvous. Best of all, it can be worn by both classic and mesh avatars.
The texturing on the Amanda dress is simply great. Pair it with one of the many sets of heels from the gift area, and you’re good to go. Enjoy!

| SHOE |Hilly Haalan .Jodi Heels – Red for Slink/Maitreya/Belleza/TMP (GG/free)
The season of love is upon us! Currently there’s at least one Valentine’s Day hunt already underway, and many more are scheduled to start on February 1st. To celebrate the season, All Spiffed Up is going RED.
I thought it would be fun to visit two of my favorite stores: COCO DESIGNS and Hilly Haalan to see just how many red outfits I could create from their current group gifts. I’m up to 4, and still have lots more combos to make. So, get ready to revel in red. Shop happy!

Prepare yourselves for another wild fit of box opening. Designer’s Showcase is celebrating their 8th anniversary round! And, birthday/anniversary rounds mean loads of great free gifts.
I was so blown away by JUMO’s dazzlingly shiny silver gown that I almost missed the sumptuous grey stole tucked into the box. I know, hard to believe but true. The photo shoot was completed, and I was double checking the box for a possible alpha when I noticed a fitmesh + 5 standard sized models with the word fur in their descriptions.
OMG! It’s sooooooo FLUFFY! Did I mention no animals, virtual or otherwise, were harmed in the creation of this stole? The textures on this entire gift are outstanding. Thanks JUMO for such an amazing gift.
The featured earrings and eyes can also be found at Designer’s Showcase. The mesh eyes are a gift from Dulce Secrets. They come in 3 shades and are boxed with system eyes, mesh eyes, and Catwa/Lelutka appliers.
If you wear Maitreya/Slink/Belleza feet be sure to visit Hilly Haalan for today’s heels. The 30 shades packed into their HUD make them a must have item.
FYI – Today’s “look” could be you. Everything in this post from the jewelry to the mesh body, it’s shape, the head, and slink compatible feet are 100% free. Thanks to the generosity of Altamura, transitioning to mesh couldn’t be easier.

** 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!
Are you looking to do a little something different in SL today? Why not go gallery hopping. We’ve put together a stylishly smart outfit for you to wear while mingling your way through the galleries.
Let’s start today’s shopping at Le’La. Le’La’s group is NOT free to join. However, they do offer lots of of gifts to members of shopping groups that are free. We found Corys Outfit in the section of gifts for MLM Free&Offers members. The outfit comes in 5 fitmesh sizes, plus meshes for TMP, Curvy & Fine Beauty, eBODY, Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza.
Our model is wearing the classic eBODY that costs 1L. We found the mesh for eBODY fit a bit too snugly around the hips for anyone using the thick alpha system to wear. But, the Maitreya mesh worked very well on the eBODY allowing a free range of motion without any unsightly body flashes.
Though the jacket is slightly roomy around the back neckline, it fits great through the chest, back, and waist.
The Regal jewelry Set is a lovely group gift at EmmaKae. It comes in gold or silver and has a whopping 30 texture HUD for the stones.
Our last stop is once again Hilly Haalan for these fabulous heels. They are part of the Alaya Set, and are sized for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.
