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

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.

I was having a lag-tastic day at the Vintage Fair (in part because of computer issues), so I could only shop for a few minutes before I had to log off and repeat the process.   I did finally manage to score a few bits to share.  The lovely dress I’m wearing is the Fishtail Gown by 1-800-BETTIE’s Vintage Clothing, and it only cost me 10L.  The store has quite a few lovely outfits for 10L, including the one I’m wearing below.

Day Suit in blue with MESH Black Spectator Pumps

NV Corsetry had provided a beautiful Black and White Tartan MESH Corset as a free gift for the event.

I paired it with a v-neck shirt that was a old Kennedy’s group gift for Womenstuff,  a pair of black MESH skinny jeans from Multiple Personality Designs that were 1L, and my favorite Leopard print stiletto shoes from StarChild (free group gift).

A quick post to let you know of some changes to my blog.

– Name change:  “Running Free with Bris” was never really doing it for me.  It was the only thing I could come up with at the time, so I just went with it.  I’ve always called myself a “Frugal Fashionista”, so I decided that would be the name of this blog.  It flows so much better.

– Header:  For obvious reasons, but I also wanted a different look.  I may change the background image someday, but it’s not my #1 priority.  Credit for all of the pretty (except font) goes to Shabby Princess.

Changes to happen in the near future:

-Photography Section:  I’ve been wanting to post all of the photos I have taken in Second Life, but just never bothered to create a section for them.   A bunch of them will mostly be rejects from when I photographed clothing for my blog.  Some may be test photos of random things in SL as I explore this hobby.  I will most likely share any old thing that I like.  I hope to have this done within the next day or so.

-Articles:  Huge maybe on this one, but I would like to expand on this blog some more with tips, reviews, designer/store showcases, etc.   Be a little more than just a “Lookie at what I found, because it’s cheap/free!” blog.  It would all depend on my free time as well.

-Wall of Awesome: Since I dedicated nearly a entire paragraph for this one designer, I thought it would be cool to have a page dedicated to those who make Second Life a more awesome place.  I am still ironing out the details on what you would need to accomplish in order to go on there, but I find a lot of people awesome for many different reasons, so I probably won’t be so choosy.

There are a lot more that I had planned, but I am taking baby steps.  I just want to make this blogging experience enjoyable as well as meaningful.  Stay tuned for some awesomeness that I plan on bringing your way. 🙂

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.

Outfit & Accessories – Julliet – COCO & CO– oL

Hair – Karena – Exile -0L

Skin – Alexia – {essences} – 0L
