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

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- 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.

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

Sadly, I don’t have another update.  I do have everything almost organized,  and I have tons of new stuff.  Sadly with me when it’s one thing it’s another.  Either my video card or mother board is trying to die on me.  Whenever I’m in SL, my screen goes black and I get this little message that tells me that my display driver stopped working.   I’m trying to figure out what to do next, but  SL me is happy to finally get a break. 

 

Lately, I’ve noticed a few stores that offer freebies to newbies.  I would love to see what they have myself, but SL me is over 30 days old.  I’ve been on the hunt for other newbies and took it upon myself to show them these stores.   I did find one and she is currently seeing what all she can get into.   I’m hoping she’ll figure out how to take snap shots, since I’m unable to stay in game long enough to help.   Expect some updates in that area.

 

My hair and skin in the photo are free.  Hair is from A&A in the Marketplace and Skin by Mynerva, free gift but group is 50L the last time I checked.  My lip make up is a free wearable Demo from M.O.C.K    Almost all their make up has one wearable demo, so check it out.   I’d link these normally, but I admit to feeling a bit lackadaisical today.  I may come back and put up links.

Honey Suckle

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.
