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…………

Spring Poppies

Snapshot_007Good morning Fabulouses!  I am here today to share with you, more news of fabulous finds at FabFree Headquarters!  Sky has placed their very pretty, Spring Poppies Dress in pink as a free gift in The Gift Gallery.  This lovely mesh design comes in several sizes with co-ordinating alpha layer.

If you are a fan of the new slink add-on shoe craze like I am, make sure you have a peek at the Essenz Mainstore.  I picked up the Berlin heels in the colour of cream for just 100L, on sale for Secret Wednesday.  These shoes fit on the Mid version of the Slink Mesh Feet.  I will definitely be returning to this shop to keep my eye on specials!  I am so pleased that so many designers have jumped on the bandwagon of making shoes for these feet!  It fixed my “cankle issue” for good!
Snapshot_008

I also visited The Dressing Room Fusion last night and picked up a couple of fabulous 70L steals!  The [glow] Designs Studio Vega Necklace and earrings are available in two colour versions for 70L each.  I am wearing just the necklace today but the matching earrings are smashing too!  I also grabbed the Al Vulo Celestial China Red Skin for 70L.  In the pack was tons of goodies including cleavage option, tons of appliers, and the shimmering Anemone Eyes in Grey too!  I usually wind up visiting The Dressing Room Fusion a few times during their rounds lol… Amazing designers participate and you can find sweet deals!

Enjoy your day! <3

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!

Giddy Up!

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses :)  I have some great news today for you today if you love BIG SALES!   Who doesn’t love big sales??   [glow] Designs is doing some spring cleaning and is offering huge discounts on their older designs at their mainstore.  You will find fashions priced as low as 30L!  Some of these items will be retired after the sale, so make sure you head on over to make sure you pick up anything you like before it is gone for good.  There are sale tags on the promotional items, however there are also some unmarked deals on certain colours of newer stock too.  You’ll have to scan the prices for these secret specials.  This sale runs until the end of the month.

The Strapless Horse Print Dress I am wearing today is on special for 65L at [glow] Designs, and it inspired me to pull out my Hobby Horse and go for a ride.  I picked up this fun toy at a Gacha Event when Serena blogged it way back [HERE], and the event is  now over, but you can still play for these fun Hobby Horses at the {what next} store for 50L per play.  These horses come with a built in riding animation that is so much fun lol.

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.
A TuttiFrutti Selfie!

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 little leather, forget the lace.

A rare gem, Maitreya sent out an absolutely fantastic Group Gift recently! Known for their high-quality high fashion products, this gift is no exception. The gift is a thigh-high pair of mesh leg-warmers that come in two versions to fit different shoe styles, and the best part, there is a color/texture change HUD with a ton of options. You could dress them up or dress them down. They would be cute over leggings or with a dress, as I decided to wear them. If you’re not already in the Maitreya group, this gift is the perfect excuse to join. Even better, right now the group is free to join, yep, you heard me. FREE. Feelin’ smokin-hot in my new leg-warmers, I was determined to find the perfect outfit to go with them. I searched high and low, and finally found this sexy little tank dress from Lavarock. The dres is their current “SL Frees and Offers” Group Gift. The dress is mesh and the texture is highly detailed. Also, I think it’s important to note, this specific gift also comes with an equally awesome shirt for the guys. I got my leg-warmers, found a dress to match, and I haven’t spent a dime, how cool is that?! Feeling good about my outfit so far, I splurged a little and went over to the 100 Block Fashion Event. I know you’ve heard me talk about Hebenon Vial before, and I still <3 them, so I was excited to find they were participating in the event. I picked up this wicked looking facial piercing set there. The set is called “Nosejob” and it’s easy to see why! I liked that the little cross on one of the septum rings tied in with the cross design on my Lavarock dress. If you decide to get a little Nosejob of your own, wear your HV group tag and get a discount. Alright, I think I’m through with the telling part of my show’n’tell,  time for the show!

Enjoy!
