Daffodils at every turn can only mean one thing:  Spring is here!  To celebrate the change in seasons I’ve put together a fun lighthearted look.  Best of all, today’s model could be you.  That’s right, everything including the Bento rigged mesh body is free.
I’m going to break with tradition, and start by talking about the shoes. Usually I start my commentary at the head and work my way down the body ending with the shoes.  However, these lovelies could disappear at any moment.  So, if you like them I suggest you stop reading and teleport to the Ace Event ASAP!  The event has officially closed, and the ban lines have gone up.  But, the gift is still out.  You can teleport over, cam in, join the group, get the gift, and run right back here to finish reading the blog.

Today’s dress from LSR Moda is a special treat for anyone wearing an Altamura body.   The Sexy Maira gift set includes mesh models for Altamura, Maitreya, Freya, and Hourglass.  The dress fits Altamura bodies perfectly with no need to use the alpha system whatsoever!

All of this outfit’s jewelry are marketplace freebies.  The Think Pink gift set from Robbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos is simply fabulous.  As an added benefit the items are copy mod, which makes tinting an extra option.  I subtlety changed the shade of the sunglasses to better compliment the dress tone.

I love the Rita hair from Alli&Ali!  This is another one of the many functional demo’s available in their marketplace store.  The pastel unicorn colorway epitomizes spring’s essence.   I can’t help but smile every time I wear it.
Happy Spring Equinox.
 


FYI – Today’s “look” could be you.  Everything in this post from the mesh body, it’s shape, the head, and slink compatible feet plus the clothing is 100% free thanks to the generosity of today’s featured designers.

| TATTOO |SL Marketplace.Isuka Tattoos.Illuminati tattoo – Classic layers/Slink/Omega Appliers(free)

I’ve got to admit, I love it when designers package a complete outfit tidily into one gift box.  Don’t get me wrong, finding freebies and creating new looks is definitely an obsession for all of us at All Spiffed Up.  However, every so often it’s simply nice to just open a box, wear its contents, and hit the grid.  For me, it’s the Second Life version of taking a day off from bed making.
Thanks to Nala Designs we can all have a lazy dress day in a brand new outfit.  The box includes the fringe halter, jeans, heels, and necklace.  The skinny jeans are sized for classic, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and TMP bodies.  The halter comes with a fitmesh and Slink Physique model, plus 5 standard sizes.  The heels are sized for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.
This outfit can be found in the far right corner of the store.  It is a gift for Fabulously Free in Second Life group members, so you’ll need to join the free group.  Nala supports many other free shopping groups.  The shopping group gifts are dotted around the store, one in each room.

Today’s sassy hairstyle is a “functional demo”, or more aptly a free sample from the marketplace.  It comes in the one shade, black raspberry, and is yours to wear indefinitely.  Be sure have a lengthy browse through Alli&Ali Design’s other styles, there are lots of interesting freebies in their marketplace store.
Finish off today’s look with another marketplace freebie from Zibska.  This fantastic eyeshadow set can be worn by everyone!  The box is packed with appliers galore and system tattoo layers.
Until next time, shop happy!

It’s easy to forget all about the great freebies lurking in the marketplace when running back and forth between the never ending stream of grid events.  So, today I’ve put together a fun little outfit that requires only two teleports and a handful of clicks in the Second Life Marketplace.
Join the free shopping group, Fabulously Free in SLthen visit Adoness to make the Frigg hairstyle your own.  The head tattoos included in this gift are for classic avatars.  Our model used one of the hairbases included with her mesh head to achieve today’s look.
Next, pop over to No Cabide and join the Mesh Body Friends group to get this wonderfully showy little nothing of a dress.  Catya comes in 10 fantastic shades, and is sized for Slink/Maitreya/Belleza bodies.

Today’s heels, piercings, and tattoos are great marketplace freebies.  Anyone with an Omega applier compatible body can enjoy these tattoos. The heels are available for Slink and Maitreya feet.

Here’s a nice closeup of the piercings.  They are mesh, copy/mod, and come in gold/silver/black.  More likely than not, you’ll need to go into edit mode to fine tune the fit.  Don’t forget to highlight “edit linked” to allow for easy resizing of the individual parts.

| BOOTS |SL Marketplace .D'eVil.Via Boots – 2 HUDS for latex and leathers w/tint & materials options for Maitreya (free)

Here’s a chance to add a bit of that naughty school girl look to your wardrobe.  Simply pop over to Beautiful Dirty Rich (B.D.R.), join their free group, and help yourself to this outfit.  The sweater and skirt are separates, so you’ll have to click on two boxes.  But, my guess is, you’ll do a bit more clicking since B.D.R. also has past group gifts out.

Today’s featured hair is another one of the gifts currently available at Lamb.  Fate is a full fatpack which is always a bonus, and the group is free to join.
ASU - microminiback
Here’s a closer look at the micro-mini.  It’s so mini, finding panties to wear with it is definitely a challenge.  Our model cheated and just use her alpha system.

These delisciously high though boots are a marketplace freebie from D’eVil.  I’ve actually seen these boots in the marketplace and passed them by on several occasions.  After convincing today’s model to try them, I’m actually sorry it took me so long to pick them up.  They come with to great HUDS, one for latex and the other for leather.   The HUDs include slider controls for glossiness and environment effects, plus a tint picker.  Basically, you can create any color you’d like to wear making these boots a definite “must have” item.

Until next time, shop happy!

I’m not sure I’d stand there gawking up when shadows like that paint the ground.  Hopefully, it’s nothing more then a couple of Warbugs engaged in a dogfight.  If not, I hope our model knows how to run in heels.
Speculations aside, today’s look could be you.  Everything from our model’s head to her her Slink compatible feet is free!  Assembly is as easy as six teleports, five free group joins, and a few clicks in Second Life’s Marketplace.
