It’s time to put away the ice cube trays, and break out the marshmallows and hot chocolate. Might as well throw in a few knits with fluffy turtlenecks from carmelo de fresa to help capture that warm toasty feeling.
carmelo de fresa has two group gift walls, one on the ground floor for various shopping group members, and one on the floor above for their store group. And, you guessed it, the carmelo de fresa group is free to join.
The Syra turtleneck sweater dress is a complete outfit. It comes with the sweater dress (5 standard sizes + alpha), boots (sized for Slink + alpha), and a bracelet (not pictured). Classic avatars take note, this dress is for you. And, if you classics own slink feet so are the boots thanks to the included alpha.
Mesh bodied avatars, including wearers of the “gift” classic eBody and Altamura gift bodies can fix most of the fit discrepancies with their alpha system, however to achieve a perfect fit near the hemline you may need to adjust (under the Leg tab) your shape’s butt and saddle bags sizes. Depending on your shape, you might need to lower the slider for leg muscles to fit into the boots.
You’ll have to pick up each variation of the dress from the gift wall to get all these patterns.
If you’re not a fan of thigh highs, we found these great ankle boots from V-Twins at the SPOTLIGHT Fair. They are sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink feet. Get over to SPOTLIGHT ASAP, today is the last day they’ll be out.
We’ve saved the biggest news for last…

Who would have thought the dreaded dust bunny would find its way into Second Life? Quite a few peeps actually if you consider the amount of feather dusters and vacuum cleaners in the marketplace!
So for all of our readers needing to clean, but not wanting to do it in French maid attire, we’ve put together a casual yet stylish alternative.
COCO Designs’ put out a new gift, the high waist dark grey jeans. These jeans are terrific. They are sized for Slink, Maytreya, and Belleza bodies. However, there is nothing to stop classic avatars from enjoying them too. More likely than not, you already have several pant alphas in your inventory. One of them is bound to work.
While at COCO Designs take a few moments to peruse their gift wall. There are several nice casual tops to chose from to complete the outfit. Our model chose the the cropped tee. There’s just something about seeing a bright hello in a strategic spot that makes a person smile.
This slightly disheveled ponytail and headband hairstyle is perfect for an afternoon of light housecleaning. You can find it at Opale Hair along with yesterdays featured style. Both are currently available as group gifts, and yes joining is free!
Here’s a closeup.
EmmaKae’s coiled earrings add a touch of elegance to the ensemble. Their HUD has 4 metal and 30 stone textures to choose from.
Finish off today’s outfit by teleporting to JR Wolf Creations. Join their free group, and help yourself to these fun spiky espadrilles.

Mystic’s kitchen nestled away on a private island somewhere in the Blake Sea.
It doesn’t matter what season we are in, there is always time for an interlude in pink.
Team All Spiffed Up is pleased to welcome back our favorite guest model, the lovely Mystic, for today’s bit-o-pink. The Sami top & skirt is Mia Styles’ September group gift. Mia Styles’ group is free to join, and also has several past gifts also available.

Mystic’s casual hairstyle is a gift from Opale Hair. Sofa is rigged for S/M/L, and comes in three tones.

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.
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.
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.
This is the circle/square bracelet design included in the Diana set.
The “full” ring shown above is the only multi-stone ring style in the Diana set.
Finishing off our post today is a pair of simple yet elegant heels from none other than the Heels store booth at On9. The Ashleah heels are sized to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

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

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.
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.
Here’s a back view showcasing the backpack. Thanks KiB for a great gift!
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.
NaaNaa’s Accessories supplied the Magic earrings. They are resizable, and come with a 4 color HUD.
Everyone needs a diamond encrusted septum ring! The designers at Dreamlight understand this hunger and thoughtfully packaged one in their On9 gift box.
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.
…exhales a sigh of utter contentment. These boots are just too lovely for words. Thanks MSS for sending us into a freebielicious coma!

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.
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.
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.
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!
This bit of bling is a gift from team All Spiffed Up to our fantastic readers. Simply stop by our headquarters and leave happy.

When a neckline plunges so far down it morphs into bikini line there is only one thing to do: STRUT YOUR STUFF!
This daring romper from NyDesign comes in 5 colors with options of plain or lace for the bra and gold or silver for the metal accents. NyDesign also has 3 other group gifts available and a row of Lucky Chairs.
This romper’s revealing nature is perfect for showcasing our next freebie: Altamura’s Jenny mesh body. Jenny was a former hunt gift that Altamura has generously donated to the London City sim’s freebie center. Jenny comes was a terrific alpha system and 3 foot heights that are compatible with Slink shoes.
Here’s a look from the back.
We left the packaged shape unmodified. This is Jenny in her full glory.
You will find this hair along with several others at NYNE. Keep in mind NYNE has two groups: The free group, and a VIP group (not free). The gifts to the right are for the free group members.
These insanely high platform boots are the C&S gift at the Aloha Fair. They are packaged with a fantastic 40 color HUD, and fit Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, & Tonic bodies. Of course classic avatars can easily wear them by using one of their own alpha’s.
Jenny’s Style Card:
HAIR – NYNE Dymetri – Color & Streak HUD (group gift 0L/0L to join)

Is it just me, or do those planets look curiously similar to pressed powder eyeshadow? I have a sneaking suspicion our Iona is deviating from the lesson plan.
Musing aside, we’ve got a few nice finds to brighten up your Monday. So let’s get down to business.
Team All Spiffed Up discovered Safira this weekend. Safira is a wonderful store run by generous owners. Safira’s group gift wall is loaded with great items all of which are free!
Iona chose to model Safira’s Noa dress. Noa comes with a 6 color HUD sized for Slink Physique. If you wear a different mesh body, don’t worry as long as you have a detailed alpha system you’ll be fine. Iona wears Maitreya’s Lara body, and with a little trial and error on the leg alphas she was able to get the perfect fit.
Look at the lovely shading in this eyeshadow! It’s one of 12 great colorways featured in the Paulie gift set in Zibska’s marketplace store. The set is packaged with mesh appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega systems. Best of all, it’s free!
Under the Paulie eyeshadow applier is the Blair skin from 7 Deadly s[K]ins (7DS). Blair was recently a Midnight Mania gift. Though you won’t be able to pickup Blair today, you can slap both of the free Midnight Mania boards located on the wall behind the main desk.
After you click the Midnight Manias pan left and check out the gift boxes. 7DS supports several shopping groups with nice gifts.
Crowning it all off is Summer, another great Lucky Board gift from Olive Hair. This gift features the blondes HUD, has a streaks option, and comes with rigged and unrigged models.
These yummy espadrilles are still available at C&S. They are sized for Slink/Maitreya feet, and come with a 40 color HUD that allows for overall color changes or separate colored laces. You’ll find these beauties on the second floor.
This fun 3D solar system picture is the September group gift at MUSU. It also comes boxed with a smaller solar system compact. The compact so strongly resembles holiday makeup sets purchased at a cosmetic counter that our poor Iona simply could not believe it wasn’t an actual applier gift. She kept unpacking the original box thinking an applier set would be delivered. Needless to say, that didn’t happen because this wonderfully quirky gift is a DECOR item only.
Iona’s Style Card:
HAIR – Olive Summer Hair – Blondes + Streaks HUD (lucky board/0L)
SKIN – 7 Deadly s[K]ins Blair Skin – in cotton candy (Midnight Mania/0L)
DRESS – Safira Noa dress – fits Slink Physique, 6 color HUD (group gift 0L/0L to join)

ART –MUSU Solar Gift – 2 decor items (group gift 0L/0L to join)
SHOE – C&S Joy Sandals – Mesh feet, 40 shade HUD (group gift 0L/0L to join)
We’ve even found a classy new outfit at BlackRose to lure you back into your closet. The Veronica Outfit is sized for mesh bodies and thoughtfully includes an alpha for classic avatar use.
The outfit is one piece, so it’s super fast to get into. Perfect for anyone with a hectic social schedule. Gotta love that drape and button detailing on the top.
Check out those stretch satin slacks. The sheen is even nicer in person!
This glamorous hairstyle is a gift at Firelight for Shelbyfied. It is packaged with rigged and unrigged models, a 2 color HUD, and a tint HUD.
In her last ASU appearance, our model Gabby, discovered Esode’s Zoe Skin. She liked it so much it has become her default look. Luckily for us, Zoe is still Esode’s featured group gift.
The necklace and bracelet featured above are part of Masoom’s gift available at The Free Dove.
While at The Free Dove cruise by the shoe table to get these flashy fur boots. The boots are rigged for mesh feet, and are not packaged with a foot hiding alpha. However, that didn’t stop classic Gabby from enjoying these boots. She simply kept the foot alpha from a pair of heels she was wearing on, and it worked perfectly.
Gabby’s Style Card:
HAIR – Firelight Destiny – Browns + color tint HUD (Shelbyfied gift/0L)
OUTFIT – BlackRose Veronica Outfit – Classic & mesh (group gift 0L/0L to join)
