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

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 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.

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.

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.
