New Outfit, Coiffed Hair, Fresh Skin, New You!

AS - Nov11-1

Happy November!  To kick off this month’s posts I thought I’d change things up a bit.  All of the items featured in today’s pictures are freebies from the stores listed below.  The stores above the horizontal line have fee-free groups that offer loads of free gifts to members.  Plus, each of the three stores has a great set of lucky boards requiring group membership.  Basically, these designers are so freebieliscous they deserve a special mention.

STORE LIST 

The stores below the horiztional line do not have free groups to join.  However, these talented creators often give out completely free and absolutely fantastic gifts, which makes them stores worth watching.

AS - powder

Let’s start with LSR Moda.  Whenever I pop over to LSR, I’m almost always looking for something short and sexy.  Of course, short and sexy is by no means the extent of LSR’s inventory.  Their stock includes all sorts of garments, makeup, hair, and shoes too. All of the clothing featured today came from either LSR Moda’s group area or the lucky boards.

LSR’s group is free to join, and currently features 6 gifts plus 10 lucky boards.

Join the LSR group.

AS - Cashew22

I discovered Mosquito’s Way years ago at a White Nights shopping event.  The store had an event booth, and gave away a wonderfully detailed gift pair of heels.  I loved the heels so much, I immediately teleported to their mainstore.  As a result, I’ve been a customer ever since.

The Mosquito’s Way group is free to join, and currently features 10 group gifts plus 3 lucky chairs.  Inside the store you’ll aslo find gifts for several shopping groups.  The featured necklace is currently a gift for SLF&O members.  Furthermore, all of the shoes are current group gifts and lucky board prizes  at the the main store.  Hanging around Mosquito’s Way for your letter is well worth the time spent.  The lucky board gifts are full fatpacks!

Join Mosquito’s Way group.

AS - Cotton Candy

Too much hair is never enough!  Which, is why I strongly recommend a lengthy visit to NYNE.

NYNE has two store groups.  Joining the regular store group is free, and at present, grants access to 19 group gifts and 8 lucky boards.  That’s definitely enough hairstyles to get you through the upcoming holiday season.  Each one of the featured hairstyles is currently a free gift in-world.

AS - Maple

Zibska is one of my favorite makeup creators.  Though Zibska’s group is not free to join, this creative designer gives out lots of truly wonderful free gifts throughout the year.  There is usually one free gift in the mainstore, and another in Zibska’s marketplace store.

Today our model is wearing a different shade of the Cal Eyemakeup gift for L’Homme readers in each photo.  Even though Cal was designed for male avatars, it also works as an understated shadow on female faces.  Simply teleport to Zibska, join L’Homme’s free group, and click the kiosk to receive your gift.

If you’d like a few more pronounced eyeshadows, be sure to check out Zibska’s Marketplace store.  Currently, there are two free eyeshadows just waiting to insinuate themselves into your inventory.

AS - Fudge

Sometimes the only thing needed to spruce up your avatar is a new skin tone.   My all time favorite Second Life skinners are the talented folks at 7 Deadly Skins.  As a general rule, the store group is NOT free to join.  However, 7 Deadly Skins features free group join weekends several times a year.  And, as luck would have it the last free join weekend for 2019 is scheduled for November 23 – 25th.  Mark your calendars dear readers because you need to be a member to enjoy the store’s awesome advent calendar opening on December 1st.

If you’re not sure whether or not this is a group you’d like to join, why not try one of the free gifts currently available for members of the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News (MGS&N) group.  Simply join the free shopping group, and teleport over to 7 Deadly Skins.

Inside the store you’ll find a few shelves with gifts for various shopping groups.  Wear MGS&N’s tag and click the box to receive the Shelby skin featured in all of today’s pictures.  The gift box includes 10 skin tones, and a browless option.  This is a fabulous gift for Omega compatible avatars.

Happy shopping everyone!

HAIR |NYNE .Moony – w/color HUD + bangs option, rigged & unrigged (GG/free)

OUTFIT |Shop & Hop Event .Blueberry.250L credit – Laura outfit in sky (250L/free w/credit)
SHOE |SL Marketplace .Duh!.engineer boots – wearable demo Tan (free)

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.
ASU - Great Giftsfb
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.
ASU - Great Giftsff
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.
ASU - Great Giftsshoe
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!

Back to School

ASU - Back to School cover
Joy of joys, we’ve finally assembled a Back-to-School outfit.  It has been a process that has left the All Spiffed Up studio littered with torn shopping bags, a few broken nails, and lots of outfits best suited for campus life in the animated series Bible Black.  That wasn’t quite the look we wanted to send our model to her first week of school in.
Thanks to the special gift round of On9 we were able to make this post happen.  Almost all of the 30 plus designers featured at On9 have put out a completely free (0L) no group required gift.  Find your happy place, pop over to On9.
Let’s start with the Sweet Cookie gift from BESHA&Loki. This prop/pose gift is fun, tasty, and calorie free.
ASU - Back to Schoolfront
The centerpiece of today’s outfit is the Kanatan Backpack/Sweater from KiB Designs.  This sweater is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies only.  That being said, this is a large oversized sweater.  It easily fit over a standard large mesh skirt  which certainly means a classic avatar will have no problem wearing it too.  It may be necessary to hide the arms, but any sweatshirt or long sleeved top alpha should solve the problem.
We paired Kanatan with a skirt taken from a great freebie set in EXTAL’s marketplace store.
ASU - Back to Schoolback
Here’s a back view showcasing the backpack.  Thanks KiB for a great gift!
ASU - Back to Schoolfacef
These funky retro-ish glasses can be found at NYNE’s On9 booth.  They don’t come with a HUD, but they are copy/mod so you can easily color them any shade you desire in edit mode.
This gorgeous hairstyle is one of the many fantastic prizes currently available on Olive Hair’s lucky boards.  If you decide to do some shopping at Olive, this color is  in the Bubble Goth HUD.
ASU - Back To School Earring
NaaNaa’s Accessories supplied the Magic earrings.  They are resizable, and come with a 4 color HUD.
ASU - Back to Schoolnose
Everyone needs a diamond encrusted septum ring!  The designers at Dreamlight understand this hunger and thoughtfully packaged one in their On9 gift box.
ASU - Back to Schoolfingernails
Quite possibly the most versatile On9 gift is at SLACKGIRL’S booth.  The Azzurra Bento Mesh Nails are high quality neutrally toned fingernails that leave the wearer lusting after more color options.  Best of all SLACKGIRL has thoughtfully rigged them for Maitreya, Tuty, Belleza, Altamura, Eve, Tonic, Slink, and Vista hands.
For everyone out there wearing any of the gift Altamura bodies, this is your chance to pickup a nice perfectly fitted new manicure.
ASU - Back to Schoolshoe

…exhales a sigh of utter contentment.  These boots are just too lovely for words. Thanks MSS for sending us into a freebielicious coma!

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!
ASU - Some Like it Hotface
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.
ASU - TheShopsGoneWild front
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.
ASU - TheShopsGoneWild back
There are so many lovely color choices to choose from!  Even better, notice how perfectly the top rests over the jeans.
ASU - TheShopsGoneWild ring
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.
ASU - TheShopsGoneWild face
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!
