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.

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!!!

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).

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.

Put a little spring in your step with this cute little dress that I have found in this awesome store called Multiple Personality Designs.   It comes in a fatpack with 4 other spring friendly colors shown below.

Cedar, Coffee, Quary, and Phlox

They each come with a pair of black ballet flats and you can choose one color for 1L or get the entire pack for 5L.   I could just go on about Multiple Personality Designs, heck even their sim, which the most expensive thing I’ve found so far is 25L  So you can’t go wrong.  (I think the texture store is the only exception)   I even paired them up with some cute accessories.

Every girl should have at least a little bling.

 

You can grab these Splash Bangles by Lunish Cats for free from the Womenstuff Group Gift board located in Maverick Designs and the Princess Necklace came from AR Designs, though I don’t exactly recall where I found it, I assume that it was a free gift from the FabFree HQ.    I thought my free Wynona hair by A&A went well with the whole ensemble.   It comes with a resizing HUD, which also allows you to change your streak color.

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.
