…Sparkly, and new.

Here’s a lovely shiny dress perfect for outdoor spring music festivals, walks along the boardwalk, and afternoon tea.  The Pepper mesh dress is sized for Maitreya, Slink, and classic avatars.  This dress, along with a sizable cache of goodies, can be found at !Soul.  The location I’ve landmarked for you is a freebie room, so everything costs 0 Lindens if you’re a  member of the !Soul group.  Did I mention there is no group join fee?

The surprisingly flirty back gives you a chance to show off all those hours spent in the gym.

Today’s hair is one of the many free luckyboard  styles available at Olive Hair.  The Cutie style is perfect when you want to show off your back, comes in an awesome fatpack, and is a “must have” item for long hair lovers.  Olive’s luckyboards and midnight mania are free for everyone to play.

Visit AvaWay, join their free group, and walk away with no less than three new pieces of jewelry.   The Twins Set is copy/mod and unrigged, which allows wearers to make extra copies and layer the pieces which is precisely what our model did.

Though the Kenya boots were featured in my last post, unfortunately they were hidden under the jumpsuit.  These boots are so nice, I thought they needed a chance to shine.  The included eight color HUD allows for lots of customization. The only drawback is that they are sized only for Slink’s hourglass/physique bodies.  However, that doesn’t mean you can’t try them on a body with Slink compatible feet.  Our model is wearing Altamura’s Juliet body,  and as you can see, the model for Slink classic worked quite well.

Happy Shopping!

Season of Pink

Warmer longer days demand pink.  Pink socks, pink bikinis, pink hair, and of course the quintessential pink jumpsuit!  Thanks to Seniha Originals, this dreamy pink jumpsuit can be yours without reaching for your virtual wallet.   Seniha spoils their group members with lots of high quality gifts, several luckyboards, and also supports a few shopping groups.  It’s hard to believe this group is free to join.

The Zoe jumpsuit fits like a glove!

To finish off today’s look, I paired the outfit with another functional demo from Alli&Ali’s marketplace store, and a copy/mod necklace gift from Sweet Thing.  Though they are hard to see, Sevyn East contributed a fun set of heels via The Free Dove.

Until next time, enjoy the pink.

The Liaison Collaborative Event is celebrating its 6th anniversary in the most wonderful way, with lots of talented designers and a large well stocked gift area.  Simply join the free event group to gather the gifts.  Not all of the gifts are located in the designated gift area.  So, be sure to wander the booths to find even more anniversary goodies.

This wispy, sassy bob is Iconic’s event gift.  Iconic has generously given the full fatpack including materials options and rigged plus re-sizable models.  There are so many interesting color choices you’ll find it hard to decide which to wear.  Thanks Iconic for a terrific gift!

Izzie’s Eye Blush gift is fantastic for all of you makeup wearers out there.  And, in true Izzie fashion, the gift box is packed not only with appliers, but also the system tattoo layers.  This set comes with 3 shades that offer the choice between a darker or lighter application.  Whether you favor a bold statement, or a subtle hint of color you are bound to be pleased with this gift.

I’ll finish off this post with a great pair of heels from The Free Dove.  Rebel Hope’s Libby heels are surprisingly versatile.  At first glance, you might get the impression they are for formal wear.  But, several of our models have added these lovelies to their inventory, and all have remarked how often they wind up wearing them when no other shoe seams to fit an outfit. So, if you wear Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, or TMP feet then you might want to make a quick run to The Free Dove for these flashy, yet stylish heels.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

Happy Women’s Day

DRESS|Virtual Diva Couture .Utopy Woman's Day Gown – fitmesh (GG/free) 
| JEWELRY |The Free Dove .Lazuri.Valentina Special Edition – texture changer on touch + resize (GG/free)

It’s International Women’s Day and the grid is popping with gifts.  If you’re not sure where to start looking for gifts, I recommend stopping by all your favorite stores.  More likely than not, they’ll have a special gift set out to celebrate.  If you’re on lot’s of store subscriber lists you’ve probably already got a few gifts in your inventory that were sent out.

Virtual Diva’s Women’s Day gift is simply stunning.  This is a fitmesh model, so you might need to use your alpha system a bit.  You’ll need to join their fee free group to take this gown home.  It’s really not a problem, since Virtual Diva also has several lovely past gifts out.

To finish off your ballroom look, head over to The Free Dove to get this beautiful jewelry set.  It’s a lovely older set that changes the metals and gems from an on touch popup menu.

Enjoy your day, and 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.

Here’s a closer look at the Square Chunk Jewelry Set from the marketplace.  It comes with earrings and a necklace in two shades.  Each piece includes a resize on touch menu.

I love the detailing on the Jasmine heels.  These heels are sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza mesh feet.  They are currently available at The Free Dove, and come in eight fantastic floral prints.  You can also view the purple iris variation here.

OUTFIT |The Free Dove .Emerald Couture.Dolores Outfit Pink Latex – black leather jacket/black boots/pink dress/omega stocking in black & white Slink/Maitreya/Belleza/TMP/Classic  (GG/free)

I love it when I find a complete outfit in a box!   Thanks to Emerald Couture’s generous gift at The Free Dove duplicating today’s look on your avatar can be done in record time.  The Dolores Outfit Latex Pink comes packaged with: pink dress, black leather jacket, black boots, and Omega fishnet stocking appliers.

ASU - OneStopShopback

Each item is separate for easy mixing and matching with other clothing in your inventory.  The jacket and dress are sized for both classic and mesh avatars.  The boots are sized for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies.  Of course, classic avatars can easily use an ankle boot alpha already in their inventory to make these boots work.

Mesh body wearers will be especially happy with the included fishnet stocking applier HUDs.  The stockings come in black and white, and work with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega compatible bodies.

Until next time, shop happy!

Happy Friday!  Just in case yesterday’s post didn’t inspire you to visit The Gacha Gardens, I thought I’d share a few more items to peak your interest.  One of my favorite items I picked up is the modern yoyo from SEmotion’s stall.

Another fun item is KHD’s Urban Digital Mask. It’s the perfect accessory for when you need tunes and protection from airborne pathogens at the same time.

The last few items from the garden featured today are: eyes from Musa, lipstick from Venge, and pants from Rapture.  These five plus yesterday’s outfit are a nice sampling of just a few of the gifts available.

It’s not easy finding free quality outer wear.  Which is why our entire staff was so pleased to find this gem on a recent visit to Sevyn East.  To keep warm, simply join the free store group and click the winter group gift poster.  Your new down jacket comes with an 8 color HUD that allows for mixing and matching the hood and body colors.

To finish off today’s look, pop over to The Free Dove and grab DE.Boutique’s shoe gift.  They come with an 8 color HUD featuring great tropical textures in various different tones.  The detailing on these is so fantastic you won’t want to take them off.  Enjoy!

HAIR |Sintiklia .Sheba slicked back – w/color + hat HUD (free)
JACKET |Shop & Hop Event .Blueberry.250L credit – Minnie coat in pixie w/t-shirt HUD (199L/free w/credit)
HAT |Beautiful Dirty Rich .Holidays Little Diva – color + tint HUD (GG/free)
PANTS |SL Marketplace .Delizio.classic jeans – classic jeans w/appliers for mesh (free)
SHOE |The Free Dove .LBB.Kenji boots – resize menu + color HUD (GG/free)

Only 2 days left to Shop & Hop!  This gift rich winter shopping event only runs through January 4th, so it’s time to get your shop on.

Our classic model, Gabby, decided pop over to Blueberry and redeem her event store credit.  She chose the Minnie coat (shade pixie).  Minnie is sized for mesh bodies only, so there is no alpha for classic avatars in the box.  Of course, that does not mean classic avatars can’t wear this.  It simply means you have to be a bit creative by borrowing alphas you already have in your inventory.

Or, you can do what Gabby did, and simply wear one of the included meshes for a curvier body type such as Venus or Hourglass.  Going curvy will usually solve most fit problems.  Plus, you have the added joy of going voluptuous without having to purchase the body.  **WARNING – wearing  curvy mesh clothing on a classic avatar is a virtual Wonder Spanx – the effect ends when the coat comes off (wink, wink).** 

ASU - Shop&Hop3back

Today’s hair is one of several free (no group join required) gifts at Sintiklia.  The way the hair flows seamlessly over the mesh hooded jacked is simply great.  The Sheba hair is designed to be a hat hair, and comes with the option of making the included hat invisible so that you can wear any hat of your choosing.

Gabby decided to wear the hat from B.D.R.’s Little Diva outfit originally modeled here.  Little Diva’s HUD includes a tint picker for creating infinite color choices.  Gabby had no problem tinting the hat to match the shade of her coat.

I wanted to have our model pair this outfit with a nice pair of UGG styled winter boots.  Unfortunately, none of our team was able to track down a current freebie.  Cabal, yesterday’s model, overheard our dilemma and proceeded to bust up laughing.  He just kept looking down at his boots and roaring.  And, that’s when the light bulb exploded.  Ladies, the Kenji boots may be in the men’s section of The Free Dove, but that doesn’t mean we can’t wear them too!  Shop happy peeps!

Happy 2019!

Happy New Year everyone!  Guys, this post is for you.  You can recreate today’s look for yourself in just two teleports.

First, you’ll want to visit one of the grid’s newest freebie centers:  “F” Store Freebie Junkies.  Though the the store does have some female clothing, most of its inventory is for male avatars.  There are enough goodies to keep you busy for a fair few minutes.

Both the upper body coat outfit and the jeans include alpha layers for classic avatar use.  These mesh outfits are not sized for specific name brand bodies.  However as long as you have a good alpha system included with your mesh body, wearing them is a snap.  Don’t panic when the skin showing through the ripped jeans does not match your skin tone.  Simply put on the included jean HUD and choose a pre-loaded tone.  If needed, you can then add hues by using the tint picker.

Next, simply pop over to The Free Dove.  If you’re not a member, join the store’s free group.  Then walk over to the men’s section for the Kenji Boots by La Bella Boutique (LBB). These boots can be worn by both mesh and classic avatars, and come with a resize menu system plus a color change HUD.

Until next time, happy shopping!
