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

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!!!

Right now I can only present a teaser to the second part of the pumpkin hunt at JeSyLiLO.  I had managed to get a nice shot before my computer completely crapped out on me.  Not only that, but my Photoshop stopped working.  So until I can find out how to fix things, I will be posting untouched photos.  Not that I do too much to them, so there may be little difference from what I normally post.

As you may recall, I mentioned that JeSyLiLO is hosting a hunt where you have to find 20 pumpkins hidden throughout the store.   Each item is free, but you have to be a group member to participate.  Fortunately, the group is free  and the store puts out awesome monthly gifts****  (See bottom)  One of the five items is the Winter Woolen Vest which I paired with a turquoise Intrinsic Tank. You can get the tank for free at Jane, and they come in a variety of amazing colors.  I’m also deviating from my usual shape to wear the Fairy Avatar shape with the Light Autumn Skin.  I was excited to find that JeSyLiLO provided a hair gift, since free hair is pretty hard to find.   Boonta in Black Cherry is such a fun looking style and it is an amazing color.  It also sets off my autumn green Katy Eyes, which you may not be able to see that well.   I found the Autumn Brown Leather boots by Gothic Angel on the marketplace, and they were only 1L.  I think they pulled the entire outfit together real nicely.

 Edit**** It has been brought to my attention by a reader that JeSyLiLO charges 50L to join group.  I figured there may have been a change so I spoke to my friend Atherina Rhapsody and she had informed me that it does cost 50L to join the group.  Whether it always has or if it is a new policy, she does not remember.  I apologize for any disappointment caused by my misinformation.  At any rate, if you can, I still urge you to join the group because the monthly group gifts are worth it.

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.

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.

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. 🙂
