ASU - SpringintheAirfoot
Finishing off today’s look is a fabulous pair of ankle boots from Mosquito’s Way.  The Clara boots come in a highly versatile shade of chamois to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.  Though the boots are sized for particular mesh bodies, that doesn’t mean others can’t wear them.  Most classic avatars should be able to find an alpha in their inventory that will pair nicely with this style.

HAIR|Olive Hair .Sabrina – w/ hair color & headband HUDs (luckyboard/free)DRESS |Sevyn East .January dress – 4 colors for Maitreya/Slink/Belleza/Tonic (GG/free)
| SHOES |Mosquito's Way .Kendra boots – Maitreya/Slink/Belleza/TMP/Classic (GG/free)

Yes, I admit it.  I’m a distracted hunter.  I don’t think I’ve ever been into a store, found the hunt object, and left.  I can’t seem not to ogle all the new releases. If I see a few somethings I like there is always that light bulb moment.   You know the one.  The giant hmm, I wonder if this store has group gifts?
Thanks to my meandering hunting style, I discovered Sevyn East’s group gifts area.   Which is where I found today’s cozy sweater dress.  It comes sized for mesh bodies, but classic avatars could easily wear it by using an off the shoulder shirt alpha from their inventory.  Also included in the box is a texture changing HUD with four choices.
ASU - Feb4shoe
These lovely boots are the current group gift at Mosquito’s Way.  Not only are they gorgeous, but they’re sized for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, TMP, and Classic avatars.  Quite a nice gift, thanks MW.

Who say’s wearing pink is all about kittens and unicorns?  Definitely not the designers at Beautiful Hustler!  This sexy number is their January 2019 group gift.  The dress comes in one color, and only fits mesh bodies (Maitreya/Slink/Belleza).
ASU - Feeling Pinkback
Beautiful Hustler’s group is free to join, and well worth the effort of rearranging your groups if necessary.  A cursory glance shows 3 gifts, however, one of the gifts includes all of the past 2018 group gifts, and another holds the former 2017 gifts.  It’s a big haul!
ASU - Feeling Pinkhairb
I popped over to Olive to check out their current freebies.  It doesn’t look like any new hairstyles have been added to their lucky board wall.  That said, Olive is still my favorite hair designer in SL.  Their free to play lucky board wall is packed with fast changing wonderful mesh hairstyles.  Plus, the daily midnight mania gives great fatpacks.
ASU - Feeling Pink ShoeFIN
These lovely strapped heels are Legendaire’s gift for SLF&O members.  They come with a 10 color HUD, and are sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies.  And that my friends concludes today’s outfit.  Happy shopping!

Let's Do it Again!

ASU - Nina4cover2
Do what again?  On9, of course.  Though we featured several of the fabulous gifts available at On9 yesterday, we still have more to share
ArisArisB&W’s Surprise Dress is a gift we couldn’t resist modeling.  This stylish handkerchief dress comes with 4 great fabric options sized for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Ebody, and Tonic mesh bodies.
ASU - Nina4back
Here’s a nice side/back view of both the dress and the hair.
The Twirl hairstyle from Olive is quite possibly one of the nicest below-the-shoulder styles on the grid.  The rigging is super, and the fall is very natural.  Twirl even comes boxed with a unicorn horn for endless hours of roleplay.
ASU - Nina4facef5
Today’s jewelry is all part of the Diana Full Set gift from Moondance Boutique at, you guessed it, On9.  The set has 5 earrings, 5 bracelets, 5 rings, and a necklace.  There are 20 opal colors and 8 metals to choose from.  Basically, this single set will pretty much cover most of your more modern themed jewelry needs.
ASU - Nina4bracelet
This is the circle/square bracelet design included in the Diana set.
ASU - Nina4ring
The “full” ring shown above is the only multi-stone ring style in the Diana set.

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.

Georgia on My Mind

ASU - FaMeshed2
Thanks to the September round of FaMESHed I can’t seam to get Ms. O’Keeffe and Willie Nelson out of my head.  I blame the insanity on Belle Epoque for putting such a fabulous O’Keeffesque gift out at FaMESHed.
The Nerea Headpiece comes with an 8 color HUD that allows for changing the center and outer petals either together or independently.
ASU - fameshed2back1
This wonderful catsuit is Kaithleen’s contribution to the FaMESHed gift wagon.  It is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies. The catsuit’s base color is Rose and cannot be changed.  However, the stripes, straps, and zipper are controlled by a HUD that offers 19 color options for the stripes and straps, and 3 metal options for the zipper.
ASU - Fameshed2flower
Here’s a closeup of the headpiece and a sneak peek at the gift from Empyrean Forge (EF).
Today’s casual up-do is a Midnight Mania fatpack gift from Olive Hair.  Though this hair is not on today’s board it will rotate back in.  Olive currently uses 7 fatpacks that are rotated for the daily mania, so if  you miss one simply keep dropping by until it is featured again.
ASU - Fameshed2necklace
Empyrean Forge’s Serenity necklace is unrigged for easy repositioning and includes a 7 color HUD with 2 metal finishes. It’s a lovely versatile gift, thanks EF!
