– Partial mesh body or body parts required (for the shoes). Otherwise, this one works for classic avatars!
– Minimal spend look. Just L$10!

Hi, peeps!

Yesterday I visited Legendaire (mainly because of their gorgeous freebie gown at The Free Dove, which I loved so much I decided to check out the rest of their store) and I found a goldmine of cheapies and group gifts! I’m just showing you one cheapie today, which is perfect for a last-minute date night look for Valentine’s Day.

Rezzed out on the floor throughout the Legendaire store are several pink and black heart boxes, each costing L$10. They contain shoes, outfits, and even a couple of cute holdable pets. If you walk right through the store to the discount room, at the very back wall you’ll find the box that contains this Era Dress and Heels. This link should take you directly there (or at least give you a red arrow to follow and find the box.)

It comes with a HUD to change the dress into four different styles, as shown below:

I’ll be showing you some more of the goodies from Legendaire soon, but I have one last slinky gift to show in this post, and that’s a group gift from Amacci. It’s a sleek bun and hairbase set. You’ll need to join the Amacci group (it’s free to join; paste this link into chat and click it) and have your tag active as you click the group gift vendor. (Pick up the gorgeous heels available, too!)

This is a whopping fatpack available in all colours, and don’t forget that you can use those hairbases for other looks! (You can never have enough hairbases, I always say.)

A celestial lovely from Al Vulo!

Hi, peeps!

Today’s bargainous gifty is a lovely skin from Al Vulo!

You’ll need to join the Al Vulo! group (it’s free-to-join) and have your group tag active. Once you’re at the store, turn away from it and walk through the garden to the little wooden hut. You’ll find the gift inside there on the back wall.

I’m not sure how old this skin is, because it doesn’t have Omega appliers, and the appliers that it does have are old ones: Wowmeh, Lolas Tango, and Phat Azz. However, it also contains a system skin, plus appliers for Slink hands and feet.

I fell in love with this cute little butterfly fascinator when I was at the Swallow store. It’s a group gift (L$30 to join, and several group gifts on the wall) and it comes in eight colours.

Mar’s hair is a great dollarbie from FABIA on Marketplace. You get a 30-colour ‘naturals’ HUD with this, so you have all the basic blondes, browns, reds, and monochromes.

As for the dress, oh my goodness it’s a pretty one. It’s from AnaLee Balut, and you’ll find it as a group gift (with two colour options) in the ALB store. Be warned, though: the group does cost a lot – L$500 – to join. However, I love AnaLee’s textures and designs, and if you hover your cursor over most of the outfit sets in the store, you’ll find absolutely tons of group gifts and wearable demos. So, if you can scrape up the cash, I recommend it!

Lastly, the shoes. I was so happy to find these heels. They’re a L$65 bargain (ignore the mistake I made in the price on the image – oops!) from Ben’s Boutique on Marketplace, and they’re for Slink High feet only. You get a 16-colour HUD, plus options for the chains, so you can match them with lots of outfits.

Magenta divine: gorgeous glam at The Free Dove

Hi, peeps!

Have you been to The Free Dove lately? If not, then it’s time you hopped in that limo-link, because there’s some fabby new things out. The Free Dove has always been one of the places I’ve sent newbies to, and while it’s sadly lacking in quantity of content for male avatars (the poor guys always seem to get short shrift when it comes to good freebies anywhere) it still has a few gems for the menfolk. But I’m here to show you one of the female items, and it’s this simply gorge frock by Purplemoon!

It comes in standard sizing, so you don’t need a mesh body to wear it (although Mar’s wearing it with her Slink Physique body, after a bit of clicking through the alpha-hiding HUD for the body). The included gloves come with a standard glove clothing layer and an Omega applier for the mesh body peeps.

The jewellery is one of two sets available at The Free Dove, by Lazuri. I love this to bits! It’s so elegant and classy, and it’s massively customisable. Just click each item to choose from lots of different gem, metal, and pearl colours. The pack includes earrings, a necklace, and two bracelets.

Mar’s hair is also from The Free Dove. I did say there was a lot of fabby stuff there now, didn’t I?! This pretty up-do is by Rezology (and they also have another style available, which I’ll show in another post). You get a HUD for several different colours (although do be warned that there’s a bit of subtle glow to the hair, which shows more with the lighter blondes, but it still looks gorgeous!)

Mar is wearing the pretty Star Bliss nail appliers (for Slink/Omega and Maitreya; Omega will work on Belleza mesh bodies) from LIVIA. They’re available for L$10 on Marketplace, and come with several pink and lilac mixed options.

The finishing touch is the makeup. Mar picked up these eyeshadows in a previous Ricielli treasure hunt for just L$15, but they’re now available on Marketplace for L$50 for seven shades. I love these, as they’re so striking and they really make your eyes look sparkly! So, while L$50 might be a bit of a high price for this blog to recommend for some eyeshadows, I think it’s worth it :)

Purplemoon is gonna shiver yer timbers!

Arr!

(Two posts in a row. That looks promising, doesn’t it?)

Hi, peeps! Today’s gifty comes from Purplemoon Creations. The group costs L$50 to join, and you get a fabulous group gift in the store each month. (Copy this link and paste it into chat for the group info.)

This is a gorgeous outfit! I’ve never been disappointed with Purplemoon’s group gift’s, and this is no exception. You’ll get this white dress, hat, gloves, and cutlass in the gift. The dress comes in: Belleza Venus, Isis, and Freya, Slink Physique and Hourglass, plus standard sizing (XXS-L, with an alpha layer) for standard (non-mesh) avatars. The gloves come in fitted mesh and standard sizing (XXS-L). You also get a little HUD to change the lace edging from sheer to opaque.

No footwear is included, so Mar went on a Marketplace hunt for some. The perfectly-named Cutlass Heels are by Blackburns, and they’re just L$29. You’ll get one each of black and white pairs in the folder (my white pair rezzed as pink, but those ones are recolourable!) and you’ll get a colour HUD so you can make them match any outfit. The Marketplace ad states they’re “made to be worn with av feet for high heels” and they fitted Mar’s Slink High feet perfectly.

Since Mar’s all-white for this ghostly outfit, she needed some white hair! [email protected] to the rescue with this group gifty hair in a faboo 12-colour ‘naturals’ HUD. The [email protected] group costs L$100 to join, but it’s well worth it, especially if you like to fish for the bi-weekly outfits (a lot of people trade pieces of the outfits in the group). There’s also an Advent calendar every year at [email protected], for group members, so join up now to get ready for that!

Hi, peeps!

I’ve been AWOL, I know. I’m really sorry about that, but RL is seriously kicking my butt of late. I wandered past the blog last night and realised I hadn’t posted since May. Eek! So here’s another wee post to tide you over. I hope I can get more time to get back to blogging soon.

I felt like going old-fashioned again, so I found this lovely little Regency-style dress by Duquesa on Marketplace:

Pity my poor neighbours IRL, because I’ve got the new Daft Punk single blasting through my stereo speakers and Mar’s dancing like a maniac in her skybox ;)

There’s a fab dollarbie dance out at Humanoid: the Kevin 31 street dance. It’s unisex and just one measly Linden Dollar. What are you waiting for?!

Hop behind the cut for your limo and a guide where exactly to find it on the Humanoid sim!

Here’s a gorgeous cheapie dress that I found at the Kunglers Outlet store:

It’s the Claudia Dress in ‘forest’ for just L$60 (there’s also a lovely pink version for the same price). I splurged a bit on some matching jewellery, too (L$150, but gorgeous!)

Mar’s skin is the current Al Vulo! group gift [ group link – free to join ] [ in-world store ] and her hair is a new, limited-time freebie from A&A on Marketplace: the Agnesa Hair in ‘mixed brown’ [ link ] – the promo price for that hair ends on 15th February 2013.

Mar’s shoes are the L$50 colour-change MIB Stilettos from HoC Industries [ in-world store ] and her eyes are the new group gift from IKON: the Lucid Eyes in ‘optimism’ [ group link – free to join ] [ in-world store ]. I’ll be blogging those eyes in detail in another post today.

Hi, peeps!

Wow. I can’t believe that Mar’s been in-world for five years now! I know I’ve not been blogging as much lately (RL is pretty busy and I don’t have much energy to run around and find freebies/cheapies, or write up long illustrated tutorials), but I just had to celebrate the occasion with five new looks, all culled from Marketplace (with one in-world group gifty).

Hop behind the cut, for five fabby, cheapie looks!

Wishing all of my fabulous readers a Happy New Year, and a wonderful 2013! Thank you so much for being with me in 2012 (and previous years) and I hope to bring you more gorgeous goodies and helpful hints over the year to come :)

Before you hop behind the cut for the dresses, if you want the perfect thing for a best friends New Year card to send out to people or post on Plurk/Flickr/wherever, hop over to Alouette and grab the free gift on the table. Inside you’ll find the ‘girlfriends’ poseballs (a really cute friends pose) together with mesh Happy New Year crowns (one pink – as worn by Mar, above – and one blue) plus two glasses of champagne (which Mar is hogging both of!). Both you and your bestie will have to pick up the gift, as the items are no transfer, but it’s a lovely little freebie :)

OK, onto the frocks! Hop behind the cut :)
