It’s been a hectic past couple of months.  My computer had major issues, which have yet to be resolved, then I moved and started going back to college in my 1st life.  I was also working on my photography.

Speaking of photography, meet my first client, Quinn Quietly.

The clothes she is wearing in the photo are mostly marketplace finds, except for her skin.   She had told me that she used to scoff at the idea of free clothing that were of high quality until she stumbled upon these items in the marketplace one day.   I loved how she put it all together.

When I received an invitation to a ball, I was feeling a bit dismayed.  I could not find anything to wear!  Which is silly since my wardrobe consists mostly of formal gowns.  I was going to give in and wear an old favorite until I received a group notice.

I had my gown, but I needed a beautiful do to go with it.  My hair collection is pretty dismal since I get caught up in buying clothes.  Fortunately, my friend Atherina Rhapsody updated me on all the gifts I had missed, and I learned that Truth was giving out this beautiful updo to subscribo members.   On Sascha’s blog, they do mention a bun that was made to go with the gown by AVOKI, you can read more about it here.   To feel even more glamorous, I topped the whole look off with my Jaded Cherry make up by Glamorize.  It is probably my favorite makeup store, and they have fab items from 1L to 25L.

I am also wearing a new shape that was created by Yours Truly.   It is my “Holly Day” shape that I had intended to present as a Christmahanakwanzakah present, but sadly I wasn’t able to.  I do plan on giving it out, and until I can make it easier, just send me a message, or (even better) drop a notecard.  It fits most standard sized mesh items, but it is modifiable so you can tweak it to your liking.  :)   Cinderella has nothing on me now.  Let’s just hope I don’t lose a shoe.

Skin: Mother Goose’s: 0L  Lucky board gift

Shape: Briseis Stoanes: Holly Day: 0L

Hair: Truth: Happy: 0L Subscribo gift

Gown: Sascha’s Designs: Avi Awards Gift: 0L for all until Jan 15 then group only: 50L group fee

Make up: Glamorize: Jaded Cherry: 1L

Looks like my computer made a liar out of me… except it only did it once.  Fortunately I was able to hit the Peace on Earth Hunt, which was the first hunt I have ever participated in.  So it is a pretty big deal for me to find the beautiful silver dress from Sassy! for my new photo.  I added it to my photography page, because I thought I did a stellar job with it.  Sadly, I’m too lazy for link to Sassy or POE’s page, but if you want it, just request it in my comment box and I’ll add it.   My jewelry is the Twilight collection by Two Sisters Jewelry.

My good friend Atherina Rhapsody, who has modeled for this blog in the past, was busy hunting along when she chanced upon Santa Claus!  She decided to take her photo with him.  She made a greeting card out of the photo for all the readers of Frugal Fashionista.  Doesn’t she look festive in the POE gift from Tres Beau?   Thank you, Atherina for the wonderful greeting.

Santa!!!

Another Hiatus

Another undetermined hiatus.  My computer has reached the point that it can no longer handle intense graphics that you would find in Second Life and high end games.  Many other issues tie all my problems to the motherboard and I’m not sure when I can find another one.  I may log in from time to time on a borrowed computer, but I won’t have time to take photos and put them up on the blog.  So until I can fix my computer, you may not see any updates for a while.   In the meantime, there are many other freebie related blogs that are updated more frequently than this one.   FabFree being one of them.
My friend Atherina Rhapsody, who has modeled some of the items I’ve featured previously, may step in for me when she has time.  Right now, her First Life is extremely hectic so you may not see any posts from her for awhile.  Thank you for your understanding.

Right now I can only present a teaser to the second part of the pumpkin hunt at JeSyLiLO.  I had managed to get a nice shot before my computer completely crapped out on me.  Not only that, but my Photoshop stopped working.  So until I can find out how to fix things, I will be posting untouched photos.  Not that I do too much to them, so there may be little difference from what I normally post.

As you may recall, I mentioned that JeSyLiLO is hosting a hunt where you have to find 20 pumpkins hidden throughout the store.   Each item is free, but you have to be a group member to participate.  Fortunately, the group is free  and the store puts out awesome monthly gifts****  (See bottom)  One of the five items is the Winter Woolen Vest which I paired with a turquoise Intrinsic Tank. You can get the tank for free at Jane, and they come in a variety of amazing colors.  I’m also deviating from my usual shape to wear the Fairy Avatar shape with the Light Autumn Skin.  I was excited to find that JeSyLiLO provided a hair gift, since free hair is pretty hard to find.   Boonta in Black Cherry is such a fun looking style and it is an amazing color.  It also sets off my autumn green Katy Eyes, which you may not be able to see that well.   I found the Autumn Brown Leather boots by Gothic Angel on the marketplace, and they were only 1L.  I think they pulled the entire outfit together real nicely.

 Edit**** It has been brought to my attention by a reader that JeSyLiLO charges 50L to join group.  I figured there may have been a change so I spoke to my friend Atherina Rhapsody and she had informed me that it does cost 50L to join the group.  Whether it always has or if it is a new policy, she does not remember.  I apologize for any disappointment caused by my misinformation.  At any rate, if you can, I still urge you to join the group because the monthly group gifts are worth it.

Two hunts that I’ve recently participated in are the Ricielli Halloween Hunt and the JeSyLiLO Find My Pumpkin Event.  Both are store-wide hunts and involve pumpkin hunt objects.  The Ricielli Halloween Hunt is a 15L per object hunt, but the quality of the items makes this a steal.  The JeSyLiLO hunt is free, although you have to be a group member to participate.  Good news is that the group is free to join, and you get to look forward to scoring the beautiful skin gifts that they put out every month.  No matter how you look at it, it’s win win.  JeSyLiLO also has a photo contest involving your finds, and the prize is 5000L and the hunt and contest last until November.   For now, I will be blogging 3 of the Ricielli hunt gifts that I managed to snatch up.  There are 19 gifts, and if you would like to see what you may be getting, or want to pick and choose, then Ricielli has a cheat sheet here.     With autumn here, and winter creeping upon us, I’ve been obsessed with coats and jackets.  It has been my belief that the right jacket can add the perfect touch to an outfit, and Ricielli has provided some beautiful pieces.

Ricielli Mesh Coat- Salmon Snakeskin RHH #1

Ricielli Mesh Coat- Green Wool RHH #13

Ricielli Mesh Jacket- Wine Wool RHH #17

I mentioned my Calico Ingmann Debbie hair, which is also a free hunt gift through the Red Seal Hunt (will have to get on blogging that) in my last post.  My Glamorize swirled black jeans and Night Star eye and lip makeup that were 1L, and my free Mynerva  Sara Pure skin, which is a group gift. (50L join fee).   The lace tank I’m wearing is what I had left over from the Cart Sale last month by Somnia, I’m not sure if they carry them in their store in world, but they do have them in the Marketplace for 200L (boxed set).

Again, my photo was taken in the photo studio located inside Designs by Isaura.

Ready for Autumn

Yay, a freebie update.   I can only manage one, but I have some more ready, and hopefully I’ll have them up before the hunts end.  Autumn is my favorite season.  Not only are there so many amazing colors and smells, but there are so many cute jackets and sweaters on market.  Second Life is not an exception.

 

 

I found this cute little cardigan/sweater in DCNY as a group gift.  I paired it up with a cute pair of jeans that I found for 1L at Glamorize, which is where I found my eye shadow, which was 2L I believe.  They have many amazing colors of make up and skins that go up to 25L.  My lip color is a wearable demo/tester from M.O.C.K as I have mentioned in my last post.   The beautiful hair that I’m wearing is actually a hunt prize from the Red Seal Hunt, which is a hunt held on the Rue D’Antibes sim.  The hair is Deb from Calico Ingmann Creations and it comes with a color changing HUD so you can swap out the hair color as much as you want.
My photo was taken at a free DIY photo studio at the Designs by Isaura store.

I forgot to mention that my skin is a free gift from Mynerva
