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.

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.

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. 🙂

Exhausted

The 1st Life me is pretty much like this too.

I’ve had a crazy month and while it is still a bit hectic, I can actually afford some quality time in my favorite virtual world.  Just in time too since there’s the Vintage Fair (WOOHOO!!!) and The Wash’s Biannual Cart Sale going on.  I will be broke, but with a extensive wardrobe.   I already did some shopping in the Vintage Fair, but I will tell you more about that later.

For now I just want to take the time to give props to a store called Vanguard.  I recently purchased an item that looked great in the photo, but not so great when I was wearing it.  So I sent a note card to the owner, not expecting a refund because, like most SL stores, their policy was not to refund unless you accidentally bought a duplicate.  Not too long after I had sent the notecard, the owner contacted me with an apology and she also refunded me despite her policy.   Thanks Rollyn for your awesome customer service. 🙂

Anyway, I’m going my merry way to spend my money on awesomeness.

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.

Between major computer issues and a nasty cold, it is no wonder that I would be reduced to tears.  Fortunately this is the season to come up with a perfect excuse for the weepies.   But I was instantly cheered when I had walked into Mother Goose’s and found all sorts of fabulous skin freebies as well as a couple of dollarbies.  Wait for your letter to show up on the many lucky boards, or browse the baskets in the back for beautiful skins.  I’m currently wearing “Nadine”, which I can also blame my tears on.  BCC has quite a selection of freebies.  Join their group, and you can enjoy a few of their group gifts (group is free to join by the way) and they have a couple of lucky boards and old hunt items.  My YUKI eye lashes and MICO HULip  gloss for 1L were found there.  I do urge you to check out their non-freebies, because they have some adorable items.  My hair is called “Maya” and you can find this beauty at D!va along with other previous group gifts.  It comes in a variety of colors (color I’m currently wearing is ‘rhodolite’ ) and you can adjust the size and toggle the ribbon on and off as well as change the texture.

I was nosing around the FabFree HQ and I found this lovely Lu dress by Agnes Finney.  If you haven’t heard of the FabFree blog, then I suggest you check it out.  They pretty much do what I’m doing right now, and letting you know where you can get your hands on some free or cheap goodies.  The HQ has almost over 100 freebies that designers have exclusively provided for FabFree, so I’d check that out too, if I were you.
