Rest & Relaxation

ASU - R&RcoverF

Several broken nails and countless paper cuts later we’re happy to announce we’ve finally opened all of our Women Only Hunt (WOH) gifts.   The WOH runs through August 18th, so you’ve still got time to collect the goodies.

All items in today’s post except for the flip flops are WOH gifts.

ASU - R&R F&B

The dollfactory’s hunt gift is the Anne shape.  The shape was designed for Slink’s Hourglass body and Catwa’s Lona head.  If your like our model (Dutch) and don’t own either of those items you can still give the shape a try since it is copy/mod.  Dutch was able to use the body portion of the shape “as is”, but did have to make mods to the head/face numbers to get a look that worked for her mesh head. 

Though the halter top and the front tied shirt are two separate gifts from different stores, you’d swear they were made as a set.  They layer together seamlessly.

ASY&Ud-1

7 Deadly Skins gifted the Bali skin in chestnut.  The skin is Omega compatible and comes with a no-brow option!

The black flip flops are  a nice little marketplace freebie.  They come in 4 colors, and though they are packaged for mesh feet they can be worn by classic avatars.

The Mary shorts from Have Unequal have a nice embroidery color change HUD.

Classic and Proud

ASU - ItalyCoverFinal
Classic Avatars, this post is for you!

Of course all items can also be worn by mesh bodied avatars, you’ll just have to get a bit creative when choosing  a dress size since only standard mesh sizes are available.

We found this lovely butterfly dress in Helping Haven’s women’s store.  It comes boxed with 5 standard sizes plus an alpha and a HUD with 4 different styles.
ASU - Italyback
Here’s a nice back view.

The fingernails are rigged, but not Bento rigged.  So, they are perfect for classic avatars, but not an option for Bento hands.
ASU - Italyshoefinal
A&J Creations finishes off today’s look with their Samantha heels group gift.  These heels are old school, meaning the feet built into the shoe.  They come with the foot alpha, and two HUDS.  One HUD controls the strap, toenail, and skin coloring.  The other HUD controls the shoe sounds.  A&J Creations has several group gifts currently available, and is free to join.

Sci-Fi Noir

ASU - BRcover2
Fans of futuristic urban noir films are going to love the Hangars Liquides sims.  The environment completely immerses the senses, tempting even non-role play enthusiasts to dabble a bit.  Fortunately, we managed to hold it together long enough to snap a few pics for today’s post.

Recreating this look will take 6 teleports, 5 free group joins, and one quick marketplace grab.  Let’s get this party started!

The simple yet stylish gradient sweatshirt is a group gift from Revelation.  It comes with 11 color options sized for mesh bodies only.  However, since it’s a sweatshirt it would be easy enough for classic avatars to scare up a suitable alpha from their inventory.

Mission awesome skirt requires a visit to Cremosas Store.  It is boxed for mesh bodies only and supports: Altamura, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Eve (Slim, Pulpy), Maitreya, and TMP.
ASU - BRback
If you’re looking for a bit of protection from sooty city rain this marketplace find will do the job nicely.

ASU - BRmanipedi
Need a fresh manicure?  Livia is the shop for you!  Whether you’re looking for classic subtlety or bling, it’s all here.  These are only 2 of the 6 options to choose from in the Calla group giftCalla includes appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Vista, and Omega.
ASU - BRthong
Now, before you ask why we have gratuitous sexy pics thrown in let us point out that our model is wearing this fabulous thong under her skirt.  The thong fits like a glove, and it easily fit under all the bottoms our model was thinking about blogging which could be why Kaithleen’s has called this the Universal Thong. It’s sized for most mesh bodies, including ebody curvy, comes with a 15 color HUD plus two metals.
ASU - BRshoes
C&S is today’s final stop.  The Joy Sandals fit Maitreya and Slink, have 40 color options plus the ability to change the laces independently.  Thanks C&S for this lovely summer gift!

Forest Nymph

Spring is finally here!  The sun is shining, and lavender is in the air.  To celebrate spring we’ve got a selection of freebies to brighten your avatar’s wardrobe.

ASU - Forest Nymph face
Today’s sexy voluminous hair is a gift from Firelight that can be found at the Portuguese orientation sim: Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios. The Portia hair comes with two color HUDs, one for the basic color and another color tint HUD. The tint HUD allowed us to come up with this fun spring green color.  Portia also comes in two sizes, normal and busty.

Though we featured Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios in our last post, Hello Valentina, the sheer amount of quality freebies concentrated in a single place certainly deserves a second mention.  Ajuda Brasil Voluntarios is a great place to visit, especially if your avatar is in need of a makeover and your Lindens have vanished.
ASU - Forest Nymph makeup
Our model Gemma decided her normally fresh faced look needed a little pizazz to set off the overall green look created by her outfit.  So, she opted for a wonderful free eyeshadow set found in the marketplace.  The set includes 5 eyeshadow colors.  They are system layers, so this is only for classic avatars.

While in the marketplace be sure to click over to Izzie’s for the Sheer Pastel Tights Easter Gift.  These stockings come in 12 fabulous shades with included appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Omega and system tattoo layers.

Green Velvet

ASU - Green Velvet

Happy 2018! It’s a new year filled with fantastic new freebies. So, let’s get down to business.

Today Carla is modeling a matched set from Emerald Couture. This great little number is currently free for the taking. It comes sized to fit Slink & Maitreya along with 5 Fitmesh sizes & an alpha for standard avatars. The stocking/boots are sized for SlinkH, SlinkP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), and Maitreya. Not only is Emerald Couture’s group free to join, but they also have 4 lucky chairs and Men’s clothing too!

ASU - Green Velvet Back

The black chair Carla is posing with is a fun marketplace freebie that can be found in Irrie’s Dollhouse store.  The Pose Chair comes with 5 adjustable poses, is copy/mod, and has a LI of 2.
ASU - Green Velvet Face

RaDeX DesiGn has put out several new hairstyles on their group gifts wall.  Carla is modeling the Juliiet hairstyle. Juliiet comes with a HUD offering several colors.  Best of all, the RaDeX DesiGn group is free to join.

The December Necklace is a gift in alba fashion’s marketplace store.  This is a fun little necklace that is copy/mod which allows the wearer to put a picture of their choice on the pendant.

Capping off the ensemble is a lovely little faux fur rigged mesh stole.  During the photo shoot several members of Team All Spiffed Up felt the outfit needed a little something extra.  After a quick session of brainstorming we put together the ASU stole, which can be found at the All Spiffed Up headquarters in-world. Simply drop by and have a little warmth on us.  Enjoy!

Golden Years

ASU - Golden Years cover
Happy weekend!  Team All Spiffed Up decided to kick off the 2017 holiday season with a whole lot of bling.  This outfit can easily take you from a cocktail party directly to your favorite nightclub.

The micro mini dress, sunglasses, ring, heels, phone, and decor items are all free marketplace finds.  The necklace, earrings, and bracelet are free gifts from Lazuri’s main and Fashion Island stores.

ASU - Golden Years back
All of the decor items are copy/mod so recoloring and resizing is always an option.  The mirrored frames are actually quite large, to get them into this shot resizing was a must.  Keep in mind this particular item cannot be resized simply by grabbing a corner tab and dragging.  Resizing requires editing the linked parts.

The wonderful retro clock is both attractive and fully functional.  Best of all, the faux fur rug has 9 color choices, one being SKUNK!

ASU - Golden Years face
Analog Dog styled today’s hair.  This glamorous style can be found in the current freeball.

ASU - Golden Years shoes
The satin wedges and sunglasses are part of a free outfit in FA Creations marketplace store.  These heels are old school, meaning the feet are included in the shoe.  Before our mesh body wearing friends turn up their noses at these heels, consider this; they come with an easy to use HUD that allows skin, nails, and main color changes plus resizing.  Any avatar, mesh or classic can wear these.
