Holy cow, I haven’t blogged a Dressing Room collection for ages! The new one is a good’un, though, so here are a couple of items from it, together with one item from the latest mesh clothing hunt at R.icielli :)

The Statement in Pink mesh skirt is from MichaMi at The Dressing Room. Mar has teamed it with just one item – the Blake Jacket in black – from R.icielli’s new Halloween Mesh Hunt, at their mainstore’s mesh department. There are 20 items hidden in the store (they’re very easy to find; just look for the big pumpkins!). Each item costs L$15 to buy, so even if you grab the lot you’ll only be spending roughly what you might pay for any full-price mesh item at any top store :)

Mar’s skin is the oh-so-pretty Sofia Fresh skin from YS&YS at The Dressing Room, and her earrings are a free group gift from Bliensen + Maitai at the Violet Mafia location. Paste this link into chat and click it to join the Violet Mafia group (it’s free, but a busy group, so you might want to disable group notices and check manually once a week), then head to the Violet Mafia Headquarters & Speakeasy, where you’ll find tons of great freebies. Just wear your Violet Mafia group tag and get clicking!

Not free/cheap items in the pic: Shoes are by HoC Industries, hair by Truth, eyes by IKON, nails by Love Soul, poses by Glitterati.

It’s Amacci-ween!

*blinks at the title* No, I think that looks rather, er, kinky, actually. Never mind. I meant well! :p

LADIES! Amacci has put out a fabulous four-colour pack of up-do hair especially for us, for Halloween! (I guess, even though it’s a month away, we’re now in October, so it’s time for orange and black to start sprouting up all over the grid.)

The Nami hair comes in four colour variants, all of which I’ve shown here: burnt orange & black, night & orange, night & pumpkin, pumpkin & black.

Hop behind the cut for a pic of the other two colours, plus a screenshot of the freebie wall (which has lots of other goodies on it, including some spooky Halloween-y eyes and another pumpkin-y hairdo for the girls)!

“Hey, sexy lady!” – Gangnam Style freebie ;)

It was only a matter of time, really…

Thanks to Spencer Broderie and Mimi Juneau of Mimi’s Choice, there is a free gift of Gangnam Style glasses at the Mimi’s Choice store. Just wear them (they’re modifiable if you need to resize) and type gangnam into chat, and the glasses will play that damn song (!) and your avatar will do PSY’s ‘invisible horse’ dance. Great fun for parties, so go grab a pair now! You’ll find them in a big box at your feet when you land ;)

Hi, peeps!

Ugh, it feels like it’s been raining for weeks here. When I logged into SL this morning, I wanted to find something summery and bright to cheer myself up, and find it I did!

Not only have the Baby Monkey shoe lucky boards been replenished with new items, but there’s also a new set of lucky boards upstairs, filled with mesh content. Mar won a great pair of faded black jeans and a fab one-shouldered summery top, and together with the July freebie sandals from SF Design, and a limited edition (this weekend only) gift from IKON and cheapie makeup from e.e.Linter, she’s all lime-d out!

Hi peeps!

I’ve been wandering around the Grid today, and found some gorgeous stuff. This all comes from just three stores (four, if you count the prop in the teaser pic) and everything is less than L$75, with one item completely free for this weekend only.

Oh, oh, retro!

If you follow Mar on twitter you’ll have seen her squealing about the awesome stuff available at the Retro Swap Meet on The Wash sim. Prices are as low as L$10 or less, and there’s tons of stuff, from 1920s glamourpusses to 50s and 60s vixens and 70s foxy chicks. Guys, there’s some nice retro pieces available for you, too!

Mar’s put together a great summery look from three pieces bought at the Retro Swap Meet (L$10 per item, so a total of L$30) plus two group gifts.

The hair is a fabulous subscribe-o-matic gift from Truth Hair. Battle your way through the crowds (the store is always packed) and – if you’re not already in the subscribe-o, give it a click and wait until you’re registered. Once you see that you’ve been added to the database you (and anyone already in the group) can click again, choose ‘history’ from the menu and navigate to the most recent notice, dated May 26th. Click the relevant number and wait until you’re sent the gift. Inside you’ll find a full fatpack of the gorgeous Jessie mesh hair.

Mar’s Micha Top (tropical) is from the Artilleri stall at the Retro Swap Meet. You’ll get a pack of three tops for L$10 there. Her shoes and jewellery are from the Ear Candy stall, here. Her capris are from the free Aqua Halter and White Capris set from Moulliez, here on Marketplace. And, finally, her (hilariously-named!) Studious Tart glasses are from a humungous fatpack sent out to members of the Nomine subscribe-o-matic.

The Retro Swap Meet finishes on June 6th, so you have another week to check it all out :)

Summer huntin’, had me a blast

OK, this has probably been blogged to hell and back everywhere else, but I’ve been away and it’s my turn to blog it, dammit! :P

R.icielli is running a Summer Hunt at their mainstore. There are 20 golden shells to find (they’re really easy to spot, so it’s a simple hunt) and inside each shell is a fabulous item. The shells cost L$15 each to buy, but consider this: if you buy all of them you’ll be getting 20 items for the price of one or two of the most expensive items in the store. That’s one heck of a bargain!

Here are just three of the items that Mar put together into a great outfit:

Yes, I’m back. There’s a longer post over at my Ponderings blog, if you want to read more.

So… back to it! Where to begin? OK, how about with the current TDR Blue collection, because it’s still summer (at least here in the northern hemisphere) and as soon as Mar spotted this gorgeous skirt from Tee*fy she had to have it! Also from the TDR Blue collection this month is the LeoLuxe belt from Mimikri (and I love the resizing options on this; they let you resize in different directions instead of just making the whole belt bigger, so if you’ve got a plush bottom you can accommodate that without having the belt be six inches too wide sideways!)

The top is from the current Summer Hunt at R.icielli (more on that in the post to follow), the skin is a group gift from Exodi (hop behind the cut for info on that!) and the flipflops are lovely little cheapies from Magi Take.

Hop behind the cut!
