Guest Blog By Julianna Johnstone

A Guest Blog By Julianna Johnstone, originally blogged [HERE] at Fashion Clinic

I was looking through the blog right from the earliest entries and noted i used to have “Articles” not just a  fashion  agenda. So for my main posting today I thought i would see  how easy it is to create a totally free look.

I am already a member of the Fab Free group and recommend it  if you are not already it is a great group to join and its free. But I also joined the Silken Moon store group which has a joining fee of $L 50 as joining fees go not to bad. Although I have to say I will not be staying .  While the group corner has a number of nice items  most you have to pay for and to me that negates  the reason for paying a fee to joi. While I am sure they are worth the lindens if you are on  a tight budget  this is not helpful.

Here is the look I put together…………

Sleek and stylish in Overhigh FREE Group Gift and Black Collection!

Greetings!

I have five spectacular outfits to show from the Overhigh Black Collection and a FREE Group Gift (FREE to join)!  Overhigh specializes in sophisticated, modern style with a global feel, and you can clearly see it in these pieces.

The first item I want to show you is the fabulous little black dress …simply called Overhigh Gift – 001.  This adorable dress is perfect as is or it can serve as a base piece to add your own creative touch to it with belts, boot, tights, or these amazing legwarmers; previously featured by Pru HERE.  The legwarmers are a recent release, from Maitreya, as a FREE group gift (FREE to join).  These legwarmers come with a HUD where you can choose things like leather or suede and a ton of color options!

My Verania necklace is also a FREE group gift (FREE to join) from Pure Poison and previously shown by Love HERE.  My Maria hair was shown previously by Tiana HERE and is  from Tukinowaguma.   Maria is a FREE group gift (FREE to join)…as a group member of Tukinowaguma you will also find a wall full of shoes and hair FREE!
Over High Black Collection and Group GiftNext on my list is an outfit I put together with three pieces from the Overhigh Black Collection.  ALL of the individual pieces in this outfit, and the dresses that follow, are NOT free but they are amazingly priced at only 50L each! No group join required for the sale price.

The lace top, labeled #04 in the collection, is mesh and does not require an alpha to wear, the sweet cuffed shorts are labeled #03 in the collection and the fabulously cool fuzzy jacket is labeled #07 in the collection.  Each piece is sold separately for 50L and can be located on the Overhigh Black Collection rack; located to your left as you enter the store.
Over High Black Collection and Group Gift

Next up in the Overhigh Black Collection is this all-in-one collared top and patterned skirt…labeled #08.  I love the ease of the all-in-one style with the look of separate pieces and perfectly priced at just 50L!
Over High Black Collection and Group Gift

Next in the Overhigh collection is a gorgeous gown, labeled #02, with a one shoulder asymmetric cut across the bodice and a scandalous side slit that goes on forever!  I absolutely love how simple, elegant and sexy this dress is…full of taste and sophistication…and ONLY 50L!
Over High Black Collection and Group Gift

The final piece, in the Overhigh Black Collection, is a stunning ballgown with a modern edge.  This gown, labeled #01, has a sleek feel with the horizontal stripes that alternate opaque and sheer panels…and the full flourish of the ballroom skirt.  This gown is an understated knockout…sure to turn heads when you enter the room…and an absolute steal at only 50L!
Over High Black Collection and Group Gift
I mentioned that there are two other dresses in the Overhigh Black collection…they are also really fabulous little black dresses…worth the trip to check them out!

 

Happy shopping and stay Fabulously Free!

Greetings!

Yesterday, while I was out and about enjoying my Easter shopping and hunt hopping, I came across the :SMC: Lucky Boards…and what a score I made!  There are a ton of lucky boards at :SMC:, filled with packs of mesh nails (that also include Slink nail appliers!), Tops, skirts, Kawaii head pieces, glasses and Slink compatible shoes!  The layered ruffle mesh white top and pink pleated skirt, I’m wearing, are both :SMC: lucky board prizes (previously blogged by Skyler HERE), no group join required and completely FREE!  The letters turn frequently and I scored most of the items in all the boards in about an hour. I chose this fiery red Divalicious Designs Bella Hair from the MC Fashion Stores and Events Easter Egg Hunt… I featured this hair yesterday in platinum…it comes with a HUD loaded with several colors to choose from.  My shoulder bag is the !KKBB! Deidre Shoulder tote – Pink Damask, available on the Marketplace for only 1L from KissKissBangBang.

A TuttiFrutti Selfie!

Happy Easter!

Have I mentioned, in the last two minutes, how much I LOVE Easter?  I remember when I was a little kid and my grandmother would put together these amazing Easter baskets…filled with all kinds of goodies…and I got to wear something pretty!  Today I am showing you an adorable little FREE *Happy Easter!* dress from *TuttiFrutti*.  I love that this dress isn’t your usual Easter attire, with bunnies and such, the overlapping circle design and muted colors give it a retro feel and it’s FREE!
A TuttiFrutti Selfie!
Of course, I had to go hunting to find all kinds of fun accessories and boy did I score!  The fabulous Mesh Mobile Phone (with HUD) is only 1L from ::No Cabide::; on the Marketplace.  The phone does not come with a hold animation or pose…however, the HUD gives you six great texture options for the case…now that’s a pretty sweet deal for only 1L!  My “teeth” are actually an applier [:T:] Parted Lips Tattoo Layers [FREE] from [:Tuli:] on the marketplace.  There are 7 layers which vary how much of your “teeth” are showing…and absolutely FREE!

The super fun jewelry is from CHOP ZUEY COUTURE JEWELLERY… the multi colored bangles are a FREE gift for Fabulously Free (no group required)…and you add each bangle separately; so you can easily mix and match to your heart’s desire! The necklaces are also attached individually and come with color coordinating earrings.  The necklace and earring sets are also FREE  with the 250L group join.  Saving up the linden to join this group has paid off 100 fold…Belle Roussel is incredibly generous to her group members…thank you Belle! <3

My hair is one of the current lucky board prizes (no group required), Asami, from **D!va** Hair.  This hair has two bang options, bun on or off option, AND a ponytail you can add! My nail appliers, Summer Skies, from Ch’Know are only 20L (fingernails and toenails sold separately) on their Marketplace store. The Happy Easter Bag Dollarbie is only 1L from MDL on the Marketplace.

These gorgeous shoes, Seattle, are available at the Comic Fashion Fair, from Essenz. The SLURL is a forced landing point so you will need to search for the store once you land. The shoes are compatible for Slink Mid Feet and, once you find the brightly colored gift package, they will cost one whole linden (1L)!  Now THAT’S as sweet as jellybeans!

Happy Easter and stay Fabulously Free! <3 <3

A Vintage Happy Easter from Sonatta Morales!

Happy Easter from ****8*  Sonatta Morales  *8****!  The woman known for impeccable period clothing has placed this timeless FREE *8* Aprile Dress (mesh) inside one of the several bunnies scattered throughout her store.  Only one bunny contains the dress…so you’ll need to hop along and find out which one it is!  No need to join a group, this dress is FREE for everyone to grab.  I love the beautiful weave on the texture of this dress and it comes with a neck scarf (not shown).
Happy Easter from ****8*  Sonatta Morales  *8****!

I’ve finished off this look with this fab pink overtheshoulder sweater, a gacha item at The Chapter Four, from *COCO*.  The *COCO* gacha is 75L per play and I scored my favorite color on the first try!  The bag is from U.one Deluxe PopArt Mode and this particular style is no longer available, however, this store has TONS of  clothing and accessory items from 1L-50L!

Happy shopping and stay Fabulously Free! <3 <3
