Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

For anyone who doesn’t know, the title of this post and my photo are a quote from the movie Pretty Woman starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. If you have seen the movie, it will make sense. If you haven’t, well I highly suggest you add it to your movie list. The shopping scene is one of the best in the movie in my opinion.

That said, I feel like this is how I would have looked lugging home all of the free gifts at the current round of Vanity. I also of course happen to be wearing a few. All the gifts are free, you just need to join the Vanity event group. The group is free to join. I picked three of the many free gifts to share with you that I thought really went well together. The outfit I am wearing is from Queenz, my sunnies are from Avada, and this lip color is from GO Makeup. Lastly I also picked up a little bit of bling by Clever & Cool on the Marketplace to wear with these high-waisted pants. Keep reading for more details, and peep the credits at the end.

Queenz

I wouldn’t dare try to pull off all this white in my real life, however here in Second Life it’s such a win. This cropped top with ruffled sleeves, and the matching pants are the free gift at Vanity by Queenz. The pieces can be worn together or separately. Also, the top comes in a version sans the sleeves. The pants (since I cropped them out of the photo) are fitted through the waist and hips, then are a long loose-leg pant.

Sizes Included: Yentaments BBL Body, Maitreya Lara, Ebody Curvy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, 9S Jessica, Sking Katena

Avada 

The way a lot of people feel about shoes, I feel about sunglasses. There’s no such thing as too many pairs. These are the free Vanity group gift by Avada. They have resize scripts and a texture hud. The hud gives you 5 solid color choices for the frames, 7 options for the lenses, and 2 metal choices.

GO Makeup 

I love this mini HD lip palette by GO Makeup. It comes with 4 juicy red lip shades that scream summer. They also are free at Vanity with the Vanity group tag. This set comes in appliers for Catwa HD Lips and Genus HD Lips. For Catwa head wearers, this means you’ll need the free HD Lips add-on if you do not already have it. Don’t have HD Lips with your head yet? Head over to Catwa and get a redelivery, you need an upgrade! Here’s an awesome tutorial by Virtual Bloke about Catwa HD Lips and how to use them. For Genus head wearers, I believe the HD option is included in your hud.

Clever & Cool 

Finally, I felt like this outfit needed a little something extra. Thankfully I came across this cute gemstone belly chain by Clever & Cool for just 25 linden on the Marketplace. It has resize scripts built in, as well as lots of texture choices. I think it looks pretty cute as a belt, and is well worth the paltry price tag. If this one isn’t your style, there are a few others with the same price point, as well as several other types of jewelry.

Just the Highlights

High Lights

For a limited time, Paisley Daisy has lowered their group join to only 10L so you can pick up their group gifts at a bargain. The August and September group gifts are both out. I’m showing you the pretty dress from August in the picture above and the September group gift is a sheer baby doll dress. The one pictured above is mesh in all the standard sizes and I felt it highlighted the last few days of nice weather… so it’s name was just perfect.

Today is also 25L Tuesday, and I was thrilled to discover beautiful shoes at Luas! These Dorothy shoes come in Slink or Maitreya fits in the box and you can get a choice of 8 colors for only 25L each. I picked up the ivory, but you may want to pick up something different… or one of each!

I finished off my flowery look with a pretty necklace I found from Clever & Cool on the marketplace. This necklace was only 10L. When I first put it on, it had some serious bling, so I was skeptical, but then I discovered that I could turn that off by typing “bling off” into local chat and ta da! No more bling! It also allows for resizing and retexturing of the flowers into many different color choices besides the pink stones shown… so your 10 little Linden gets you a lot of necklace.

Hair: Exile – Crazy in love
Lingerie: Gizza – Burlesque Corset
Shoes: N-Core – Cuore pink floral (group gift)

I have some very pretty gifts for you girlies today. If an overload of pink is your thing that is 😉

First up, Swallow has this gorgeous skin out as a group gift. She’s called Jahaira and she has beautiful pink lips and elegant beauty marks. The skin comes with multiple brow colours too so you don’t have to worry about the brows not matching your roots! The group is free to join and Swallow puts out new gifties regularly so be sure to keep an eye out. Also from Swallow is my floral headdress, it’s not free but it’s just too pretty not to show off!

My shoes are also a free group gift from N-core. Anyone who has ever met me will know I am absolutely crazy about florals, so when I saw these shoes I knew I had to have them. The group costs 50L$ to join but I think it’s definitely worth it. Every N-Core gift I’ve ever received has always been fantastic quality.

Skin: Swallow – Jahaira (Group gift)
Wreath: Swallow – Agape
Jewelry: Clever & Cool – Forever set (10L$)

Finally, my necklace and earrings are just 10L$ on the marketplace by Clever & Cool. The marketplace is always my go-to for last minute accessories at a cheap price and it never disappoints.
