Pictures of Lilly

I always wanted a Lilly Pulitzer dress in RL.  I would clip ads out of magazines, imagining myself on yachts looking chic and colourful.  Once, on a trip to NYC, I walked up Madison Avenue and found my way into the hot pink and kelly green shop, marveling at the framed prints and reams of fabric.  I peeked hopefully at at price tag on one of the dresses – a blue, swirling candy creation, and balked.  The price was way beyond anything I could hope to afford.  I kept on dreaming.  If only I could get my hands on Lilly for an affordable price….

SL Makes Dreams Come True!

I know it’s not *exactly* the same thing, but I found my Lilly Pulitzer-inspired dress by Albino Peacock for FREE in SL!  The best part is, I got a whole lotta other stuff for free too, including the earrings by Baubles that I’m wearing!  I jumped over to the Flawless sim and took part in the Game Show Quest.  By clicking on the sign, you’re given a free HUD that will lead you to 14 different shops, ask you questions, and at the end, you win a whole load of prizes!  The whole game took about 45 minutes, and I actually had a really fun time.  Give it a try, the prizes are well worth the time.  You’ve got until March 19th!

As Lilly Pulitzer once said :  Life is a party, dress like it!

Steam Punk Nyne

Steam Punk Nyne_001

I always love it when I can bring you free or cheap roleplay styles to add to your wardrobe. So cheers to bringing you an inexpensive look today! This one you can add to your Steampunk drawer!

The look…

This look comes courtesy of Prism Designs and is part of the Steam Hunt. It only comes in Classic Mesh sizes, but it is well worth adjusting your body to fit it, or using those mesh alpha hiders to catch any stray body parts if you must! The outfit includes a mini top hat and steampunk goggles! I love every part of it! I paired it with some color change boots from Pure Poison and I was ready to go! Like all of the gifts that are part of the Steam Hunt, this gift was free and only cost me a little hunting time.

More Hair.

As I mentioned in my post [Here], I discovered Nyne with a friend and its plethora of free gift hairstyles. I’m sporting off the newest free group gift in the picture above. I love how the color change hud includes streaks options so that you can get multicolor looks! Just don your free to join Nyne group tag and pick up the group gift free!

Hunting down a dress.

The Dress Her Up Hunt provided me with my pretty bohemian dress from Sweet E’s for only 2L and a little hunting time. It comes in two pieces… the pretty tank top and lovely maxi skirt. You’ll get plenty of wear out of this one and you get lots of mesh sizes too!

Fresh Face and New Skin

If you stop by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, you can pick up the March group gift… Lucie. It’s meant for LAQ heads, but comes in Omega appliers so can be used for other heads as well. I’m showing it off on my LAQ Neve head, however. You get the body appliers as well, and you’ll get it in several tones!

Body Tones included:

  • Apricot
  • Carmel
  • Dew

Random Dancing

Random Dancing

I don’t know if you know this, but I love dancing (I may have said it once or twice…per minute).  I will dance wherever and whenever.  By the photocopier at work, in the kitchen, and generally anywhere.  I usually do it when nobody else is around, because it’s a smidge weird – but once in a while someone will catch me, and I just laugh it off.  By now everyone’s used to my random dance parties!  ANYWAY – I have found the perfect dress for shaking what your momma gave you.  Best of all, my little friends, it’s freeeeee!

Show your Stripes

I really feel that there’s not much that can top purple zebra stripes.  Seriously though, what other mad creation could be better?  I stumbled upon the Dazzle event, and thought my vision had gone momentarily black and white, but they’re rolling with the zebra theme like nobody’s business up in there!  I perused the booths, and some of the designers have gifts out!  This particular dress by Moonstar is completely free, no group join required.  Just click on the bag, and Voilà, it’s all yours.  I believe there may also be some underthings in the bag…take a peek!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • XXS – L with an Alpha Layer
  • System Layer Panties
  • Omega Applier Panties

Psst – I also got this free Bento Dance Animation (which is really mesmerizing – your fingers move with you if you have Bento hands…) at Move! Dance Animations.  No group join needed, just click and dance!

Keep on dancing, my lovelies – don’t you dare stop!

Gorgeous Galaxy

Gorgeous Galaxy

I am really loving the whole galaxy trend.  Anything with swirling stars, and blues and purples makes me happy in a deep serene way.  It’s just so pretty!  I’ve got details for you today about how to grab a super cute dress for FREE, as well as a pack of hair and lipstick for FREE!

Milky Way

I stopped by Canimal, and joined their group for FREE, only to find that they have a whole bunch of group gifts on the wall, including the cute two piece dress I’m wearing today!  It comes with an HUD to change the texture to a really appealing array of shiny galaxy colours, or if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, there are also some florals and mermaid looks to go for!  I could totally wear these separately with either jeans or a different top to maximize my inventory!  The dress comes sized for Maitreya Lara.  So Pretty!

Sn@tched Again!

I really do love Sn@tch so much.  Ivey Deschanel, the designer, is really insanely generous creating so many great looks, goodies, freebies, fishing outfits….It never ends!  Sn@tch is currently participating in the Twisted Hunt.  If you look around you may find the little cube not far from the front desk.  Also, there are 5 little starfish peppered around the store, each containing another prize!  I love a good mini hunt.  Inside the cube, I found this long luxurious hair that comes in several pastel hues.  So beautiful.  In one of the starfish, I received this fantastic lipstick (one of my faves from Sn@tch).  It comes with an Omega Applier, as well as system layers.  Oh yeah, and it’s all FREE!

I’m going stargazing!

Retail Therapy

Retail Therapy

Retail therapy is what I need.  There’s something that makes me so happy about perusing the aisles of a shop, looking at all the sparkly things they’ve got… And while I’m at it, I’ll pick up a group gift or two – today’s is courtesy of Stories & Co!

What’s the Story?

There are oh so many fantastic gifts at Stories&Co , and joining their group for 100L is super worth it.  There is a new group gift monthly, and this month’s offering is this pretty purple dress.  It makes me think a bit about summer, which quite frankly isn’t a bad thing at this point in the year when I badly need warmth but winter is clinging to everything.  The Luna Sundress features a lovely a-line hemline that makes me think of strolling along Avenues and peering into store windows on a summer’s day.  The dress comes with sizes for Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique and V-Tech.

Happy Shopping, Fab Free!

Dappled in Moonlight

Dappled in Moonlight

It was a dark and stormy night…. Well, it’s not stormy right now, but it is dark, and I am using the swirling mists of mystery about me to channel a witchy mood (or…uh…something along those lines….).  I’ve got all the details of where to get this GORGEOUS dress for absolutely FREE!

To Witchwood!

As you may know, since Love mentioned it HERE, Petite Mort and Oubliette have moved!  I meandered through the woods at the new sim, Witchwood, and eventually found my way up to the Lucky boards at Oubliette.  There are four very lovely items out, including this beautiful dress, dappled with moons and stars.  I may just wear it forever.  You can pick up your own copy by joining the Petite Mort/Oubliette group for Free, and just being patient until your name comes up!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • XXS – L with an Alpha Layer

Best of luck, my witchy beauties!

Mysterious and Spooky

Mysterious and Spooky

I think I may have recovered from the weekend finally, and I’ve got myself pulled together in a prim and proper outfit that brings out a bit of my dark side…

Wednesday’s Child

I found a shop that’s new to me called Livid.  It’s my kinda shop, filled with witchy curiosities – both in furniture and clothing.  I was quite excited to find that they’ve got a whole bunch of group gifts out!  I picked up the Wednesday Addams dress, which is so sweet with it’s Peter Pan collar.  There are three versions available in the box, but I went for the classic black and white look.  I also happened to pick up this Peacock backed chair at the store, and I must say, it is super comfy!  You can grab these gifts (and several more) by joining the Livid group for 25L.  The dress comes in sizes XS – XL with an alpha layer for added convenience!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, Cara Mia…I must go tend to my roses…

A Day Out

Thames River Valley_001

Kat showed us two beautiful FabFree gifts that you can get at the YM shop if you stop by in her posts [here] and [here] so I stopped by this week to take a look myself and was thrilled at the selection of group gifts the shop had lined up on the wall! I picked up a dress for myself while I was there.

Fit for a day out.

This dress I’m wearing by YM Shop is fit for a day out (or a date) and comes in all the sizes you need. The back is as lovely as the front, with contrasting straps in a bronze color that crisscross your back (I wish now I had gotten a picture of the back of this dress to show it off)! And it’s free with your free group join to the YM shop group!

Dress sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Original & Hourglass

Hair too!

I also stopped by Volthair where I picked up my new free hairstyle! This group is also free to join and you get the current group gift which is my long pretty hairstyle in the picture above. It includes a texture change hud with natural haircolors as well as one pastel color (lavender). It’s a beautiful all around style for casual wear or even for formal wear and for the price of free, you can’t beat it!
