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!!!

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

I won’t be as wordy in this post, though I know people don’t come here to read my rambling.  I haven’t been updating due to computer issues and real life business that had to come before my Second Life.   I pretty much managed to steal some time to hang out in my favorite virtual world and score this wonderful freebie.  You’ll find the credit/prices/description if you click on the pictures.  They should link you to the flickr page and you’ll find everything in the description.  Yes, I own up to laziness.

NOTE: There is a 150L fee to join the Vinyl Cafe group.

Yes, I’m posting more than one post in one day, a miracle. It is always sad to hear of a store in SL closing it’s doors.  COCO & CO will be closing in a couple of weeks and everything is either on sale or for free.  You can find the freebies on the second floor and they have some nice accessories and an adorable outfit available.  {essences} also has a free skin up as a group gift.  I mentioned in a previous post that May was the best month for finding free hair and I’m wearing one of the many designs offered up by Exile.

Atherina has volunteered to be my guest model again since she had found these cute little freebies in the Home’s Momiji Hunt.   It is a sim based hunt that’s held in Lavanda Square, and you hunt down 11 little kokeshi dolls in hopes of finding the one that will lead you to all the goodies.  This hunt runs until May 28

The cute shirt by Lavanda is probably my favorite of her finds, best of all it is MESH and comes in standard sizing.

How cute are these strawberry shades, provided for the hunt by MDL?

Modish provided the beautiful skin that Atherina is wearing, giving her a peachy, sun-kissed look.  The adorable little Kokeshi Doll earrings are among the many gifts by Lavanda and fit with the theme of the hunt.    So far May has been the best month for finding free hair, which I plan on photographing and blogging later.  Atherina is currently wearing one of my favorite hair finds by Tameless, which happens to be a gift of the No Strings Attached Hunt which runs until May 31.  It is an updo that is perfect for small hats and tiaras and comes with a long hair option as well.  Tameless also has some lucky board gifts that look amazing, so I urge you to check them out.

Click on the poster to find out more about this awesome event.

I had decided to check out The Cart Sale that most of my fave freebie fashion blogs were raving about.  I am so glad that this is a virtual world where bags are not required.  I don’t think I would have been able to fit everything in a car.  Just in case you haven’t even heard of The Cart Sale, it’s a shopping event that is currently located in The Wash.   All items that are located in the carts are 10L or less and they have a great selection.  While you are there, hop on by to the FabFree Headquarters.   FabFree is a freebie blog and with the help of some awesome designers, they provide some really awesome stuff for 0L.  They have some awesome stuff show cased, so I suggest you check out their blog, because they have a lot of good stuff.  Okay, I’ll shut up now and share these little gems that I’ve found.   I might show more once I get the time to get the pictures.

This is perhaps my favorite find at The Cart Sale.  The Rockabillie Red Dottie Dress by Evilkyoot was practically begging me to purchase it in all of its polka dotted glory.  It comes with the lovely red rose that you could wear in your hair, giving it classy touch.  Rock it for just 10L.

I also found this Scene women’s necklace by Option at The Cart Sale, also for 10L.  I love it when my jewelry is simple, and it seems to add a nice touch to the dress.  I love the skin I’m currently in, which is the Hisaki by Heartsick and it comes with 3 different shades and the Love Shape.  All of this was a free gift through the Forbidden Love Hunt which lasts until March 12, so I would hurry and get it now if I were you.  My shape, is also from Heartsick, was a shape/skin combo called Juliet. It was free though group membership, which is only 10L to join.   My hair was a freebie from Alli & Ali Design (Marketplace only) and it’s called Lana.   While I’m at it, I could rave about Glamorize, which is where I found my  Sweet eye make up for $1, but I plan to do that in another post because I practically hit the jack pot.  It is also where some of my photos come from.  Love it, love it, love it!  With every great outfit, you will need a great pair of shoes.  Patula’s House offers that in this free pair of shoes, provided via Marketplace.  They come with an HUD to adjust the color of skin and nails as well as the size.  They also come with a few poses, which I haven’t really explored yet, but I plan to do it as soon as I log back in.

Hello, Bris here and I just want to welcome you to Running Free with Bris.

I will own up to being a bit of a cheapskate in both Real Life and Second Life. If I can get it for cheap or, better yet, free then I’m one happy camper.  Sadly, when I first started out in SL, it was hard to find anything of decent quality that was in my limited L$ or for free.  It is especially hard for me to find something of good quality that wasn’t just plain trashy.  I strive for class, after all.

Recently, I have set myself on a mission.  That mission was to create an entire wardrobe of free or nearly free clothing.  My spending limit was set to at most 10 L$.  Did I expect it to be easy?  No, I had some pretty realistic expectations of what I was searching for.  I expected to give up before I could even get started.  As it turns out, it was actually easier than I thought.  Sure, it was still pretty challenging, but not impossible.

The first thing I did was that I checked my favorite stores.  Sometimes they have special promos, especially if you are a member of their group.  I absolutely love the stores that have monthly group gifts.  Sascha’s Designs is one example, and I will tell you more about her designs as I blog about my adventures in frugality.

Another thing I did was to get to know the Marketplace.  In the beginning of my mission, it was where I acquired nearly all of my finds.  Go to the left side, choose your category and your price range.  They even have a 0L$-10L$  category, which made my life so much simpler.  It was a little hard for me to find what I was looking for, but you can find a lot of great things in the SL Marketplace for free or cheap.

Lastly, I had discovered hunts.  That was my best discovery in SL.  Hunts are probably the largest source of all my free stuff.  I can’t begin to start on how much I love hunts.  I had even found an awesome little blog called SL Hunts.  They inform you of upcoming hunts that will be happening throughout Second Life.  Also, while I did say most of my free stuff comes from hunts, not all hunt objects are free.  Fortunately, all the non-free ones only cost 1L$ for each gift, so they still fit in with my 0-10 limit.

What I hope to do with this blog is to not only showcase my finds, or to tell you how to get them, but also to introduce all the amazing designers that create them.  Not many are willing to provide such great pieces for so little money, so I’m much more appreciative of those who do.
