Pergola Days

ASU - PergolaDays cover
Happy August everyone!

The Hashtag District is kicking August off with the UP! SUMMER event.  You’ll have to get a wiggle on if these goodies appeal to you because UP! SUMMER ends on the 15th. 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.

The Erika dress by Enigma Apparel is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh bodies, and comes with a HUD offering 10 dress fabrics, 6 string colors, and 8 bow choices.  The detailing on the denim is terrific.   Thanks Enigma for including an ombre denim, we love it!

NOTE:  Erika does not include a built in panty.  Iona is wearing Kaithleen’s Universal Thong which is a free group gift.

Our next Hashtag District find is this lovely set of classic silver hoop earrings from Modern Nostalgia.

This fabulous mop of hair can be found at Olive.  It’s one of many great Lucky Board items.  The letters change fairly fast, and when we check it is very rare to leave Olive without getting at least one great hair.

These luscious red lips are just one of 6 shades included in Livia’s Just Reds group gift.  We blogged this gift last month, click this link for a preview of all the boxed shades.  The gift is still available, and we did neglect to mention one very important tidbit – Just Reds includes appliers for mesh heads AND classic lipstick layers!

From the delicate facial moles down to our model’s toes Lake, from 7 Deadly Skins, is simply beautiful.  The Lake Skin Box included 6 skin tones each with blonde or black brows, and a cleavage or no cleavage version.  This skin was a recent Midnight Mania gift.  The Midnight Mania boards at 7 Deadly Skins are free for everyone to slap.  If you are skin lover then 7 Deadly Skins is well worth a visit.

Guilty Pleasures

ASU - My Secret2
A funny thing happened in The Hamptons …we lost our model.  At least we thought we did  until  the aroma of her unscheduled break caught our photographer’s attention.  Luckily Gabe is a resourceful shutterbug and got a few fun candid shots.

This is the last weekend to pickup gifts at The Bliss Event.  The official Bliss advert touts 63 gifts ranging from 0L10L.  While there are a lot of “gifts” be advised that very few of them are actually 0L.  That said, there are a few free gifts that are worth a teleport.
ASU - My Secret vest
Team All Spiffed Up’s favorite Bliss freebie is the jean vest from FAFA.  The detailed embroidery is simply great.  Even better, the vest comes sized for both mesh and classic avatars, making it the perfect mix and match garment.  Nina got the vest to work over her mesh top by wearing one of the standard sized vests over her body specific top.  The combination worked like a charm.
ASU - My Secret side3
The top, denim skirt, and heels are group gifts from No CabideNo Cabide’s group is free to join, and chocked-full of wonderful gifts.  There are even more gifts available for members of various different shopping groups.  Bottom line:  No Cabide is one of the most generous stores on the grid, and well worth visiting!
ASU - My Secret back
Today’s lovely long hair is a lucky board gift from OliveOlive’s wall of lucky boards changes quickly and does not require group membership.  It took Nina less than 5 minutes to collect two different hairstyles.
ASU - My Secret Shoes f
Red platforms with lots of  studs and buckles, ooh la la, we love them!  Believe it or not, these fabulous beauties are an added bonus, not the main attraction, in a boxed gift outfit at No Cabide.  They are sized for mesh feet only (Slink, Maitreya, Belleza), and also come in black and white.

When Nina was putting today’s outfit together she almost missed these shoes completely.  Luckily for us the style of the top boxed with these shoes caught her eye.  She liked the top enough that she thought “hmmmm, wonder what the heels will look like?”  Curiosity works for us Nina, thanks for the great finds!

Nina’s Style Card:

HAIR – Olive Twirl – Redheads HUD w/detachable horn (lucky board/0L)

Yabba Dabba DOO!

Halloween is coming… YIKES!  Whether you are new to SL or a seasoned pro one thing holds true:  You can never have enough costumes in your virtual closet.  To help you never get caught in the same outfit twice, team All Spiffed Up is dedicating this weekend to rounding out your spooky wardrobe.

Our first offering is Drac’s Layla Blue Leopard Dress.  It comes sized to fit most mesh bodies and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars.  Drac is currently running a store wide Halloween hunt.  There are 20 free hunt gifts to be found.  The hunt objects are relatively easy to find, so you are guaranteed to leave the sim happy and laden down with boxes to open.

Drac is a large store with lots of merchandise.  In addition to the hunt items there are several random freebies dotted around the premises.  Best of all, Drac’s upper level has a games room where you can chill while challenging your bestie to a round of Greedy Greedy.

The lovely fur is a gift from Indyra found at the current Tres Chic event.

Gemma’s eyes are a wearable demo/gift from Mayfly.

When Gemma came over for the photo shoot we immediately thought of a grown up Pebbles from the Flintstones.  So, to round off the outfit team All Spiffed Up meshed up a set of rock jewely exclusively for our readers.  We’ve made the set copy/mod so you can resize and recolor to fit your specific needs.  The Yabba Dabba Jewelry Set is available at the All Spiffed Up Headquarters.

What’s Up Pussycat?

What's Up Pussycat? cover
Meow!  No your eyes are not deceiving you, we’ve found yet another “hipster cat” outfit for you at FLG & No Cabide.  The backless t-shirt and skirt come boxed together.  They come sized to fit most of the major mesh bodies.  Unfortunately, standard mesh sizes are not included.

Of course, thanks to The Mesh Project the omission of standard mesh sizes and their corresponding alphas is never a problem.  A quick teleport to The Shops will remedy that problem ASAP.  The TMP beta free female body is always just a few clicks away.

Naturally, a system body wearer can always cobble together a few alphas and pull off this ensemble fairly well.  However the backless design of the t-shirt made doing that  quite a challenge.  In the end, it was easier for our model Gabby to simply change over to the TMP body.

Today’s flowing hairstyle is a Lucky Board find from Olive Hair.  It comes with a wonderful HUD loaded with terrific colors and a streak option.  If you are a hair enthusiast a visit to Olive is definitely in order!

All of Gabby’s jewelry is available for free in the Do Lubitsch Jewels marketplace store.  Do Lubitsch Jewelry is transferable, which is great for in-world gift giving!
