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!

Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – IT’S GROUP GIFT TIME FOR MEN

A Guest Blog by Geoffrey Edwardstone – IT’S GROUP GIFT TIME FOR MEN…

Ydea is a freebie clothing hunter’s paradise for both men and women.  Every month there are new group gifts for both sexes and the group is free to join.  Better yet, the previous group gifts stick around for awhile.  There are two whole walls full of outfits, one for men and one for women, that you can pick up for absolutely no charge at all.  Ydea’s new April gift, the Tropez shorts outfit, put me in a warm weather mood, so I ambled over to the Tiki bar to get a picture of it for you.  The outfit comes with a mesh overshirt, shorts with sculpty legs, and mesh sneakers.

1) YDEA April GG

And how about this little beauty?  I’m talking here about the outfit, not the car.  If you happen to own a white sports car you can find the perfect outfit for cruising around with the top down on the Ydea past group gift board.  The Grant outfit includes pants layer dress pants, black buckled sculpty shoes, and a blue mesh jacket with open collared shirt.
2) YDEA Grant GG

Another good place to find free men’s clothing is Resun.  Resun specialzes in outfits with a bit of a European fashion flair to them.  In addition to the regular group gift near the entrance, there are group freebies scattered among the regular-priced items (you just have to look for them) and there is a separate discount area with lower-priced older items.  The outfit I’m showing here is the Roby Group Gift (free to join) featuring traditional clothing layer leather pants and shirt with prim collar and cuffs.  I’m also wearing low black casual shoes from Gabriel (former hunt gift) and Gabriel’s Unisex Body Bag (free group gift, free to join).  The free body bag group gift also comes in cheetah and camouflage fabrics.

3) Resun Roby

In pictures 1 & 2 Geoffrey is also wearing:

Hair: Steve Darkbrown – A&A (not free)

Skin:  Filthy Vincent DT, Bald 04 (past group gift, not free)

Eyes: Dirty Little Secret (past group gift, not free)

How I got fabulous for FREE at ieQED and :SMC:!

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.
How I got fabulous for FREE at SMC & IQED!

My drop dead sexy rose.sandal.copper heels, for Slink high feet, are the latest FREE subscrib-o-matic gift from ieQED!  I didn’t even have to leave home to get them…because they were sent to ALL the ieQED subscribers automatically!  Now how’s that for customer service AND incredibly generous!  I am absolutely blown away by how delicate and beautifully designed these shoes are…and you MUST see all the ieQED designs…they are simply works of art!  While you are there…sign up on the subscrib-o-matic…to keep up on the latest releases and receive amazing gifts like these shoes!
How I got fabulous for FREE at SMC & ieQED!

The appliers on my Slink hand fingernails are part of a Mesh Nail(Momo-RGR) package that is also one of the FREE lucky board items at :SMC:.  I think it is fantastic that the creator included the mesh nails for non-Slink hands AND the appliers for the Slink hand lovers..it’s a win-win AND it is FREE!
How I got fabulous for FREE at SMC & ieQED!

This ENTIRE outfit, shoes, hair, nails and clothes are YOURS for only 1L (or FREE if you don’t purchase the bag!)…what are you waiting for…go get lucky and hunt them now!

Decorating for “Dummies”

Hey fabbies! I hope you’re having a wonderful easter, if you celebrate it, and if not, I hope you’re having a lovely day! I spent my day with some extended family (the close family gets together next weekend!), and the last few days preparing, and when I logged in today I noticed that Frogstar had ALL new things in their lucky chairs and a whole bunch of brand new dollarbies!

Snapshot_359

I snagged as many dollarbies and lucky chair prizes as I possibly could, and put them, along with the new dress forms (hence, dummies!) that are group gifts from Remarkable Oblivion, into my cute little “creator’s studio”

Snapshot_356

While I was out and about, I decided to check out apricot paws and Furry fashions‘ freebies, as well as stalk the luckies at Sn@tch, and boy did I make out like a bandit! I managed to put together an outfit for just $L1 (not including my collar, and such!)!

Snapshot_358

My adorable monster tee is a freebie from Apricot paws, one of many, actually! The arm warmers I have on won’t cost you a thing but time. You’ll need to camp in a chair for 45 minutes to grab these, but they are texture change and come in a TON of colours, so I think they’re really a steal!

Snapshot_357

The Bailey legwarmers I’m wearing will cost you a whopping $L1, and are a bunny hunt gift from Furry fashion. These are rigged mesh, come in multiple sizes, and include a whole ton of colours including rainbow! While you’re there, there are 29 other bunnies scattered all over the store for you to find! Each bunny costs $L1, and contains a fabulous prize! Some prizes are older items from the store, one is a set of scripts, and quite a few are brand-spanking-new releases!

Skin – Morphine – Manila – peach – $L0/Group gift/Buy-in group
