Since joining Vision‘s free group, I’ve been able to pick up several beautiful group gifts. The latest gift is no exception. This free dress (it could easily also pass for lingerie) is pretty in pink with a small print floral design on it and is very sexy. Since the group is free to join, the gift is free to you. Don’t get mixed up with the VIP group which costs to join. You just need the regular free store group to pick up this gift.

Dress sizes available:

  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Patchwork Goodness

Patchwork_001

More goodies.

I showed you some Graffitiwear goodness in my last post here, but there was another dress I couldn’t resist at the Graffitiwear main-store that I had to pick up. All I needed was the Graffitwear group tag (it only cost me a mere 5L) and I was able to pick up the March Springtime Dress as a free gift. It’s all kinds of patchwork yumminess and I couldn’t pass it up!

It comes in these sizes:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Patchwork_002

Since it’s March…

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up in about a week, I couldn’t pass up adding a little touch of green to my outfit. I found these pretty toe rings by ECCO jewelry for Slink mid feet on the Marketplace for just 10L. They only fit Slink mid feet so be sure you have the right feet before you purchase them! But aren’t my footsies cute!

Last Days of November

Last Days of November

A Special Anniversary.

Glitterati is celebrating its 8th anniversary, and as a gift to loyal group members, Sapphire Teebrook has set out a special 8th Anniversary gown as a group gift. As a group member, I picked up the group gift (there are lots of past group gifts still out) and donned it before setting out to do a little exploring.

The gown was an easy fit, coming in a variety of sizes that will fit just about any body, including:

  • Standard sizes XS – SL
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Slink – Hourglass and Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, and Venus

A Jaunt by the Water.

Most of the trees have lost their leaves where I live, and I was enchanted when I stumbled across this little sim called “Yasmina.” I stopped by a stone gazebo where I had a perfect view of small fishing boats and the autumn trees and was able to catch a picture with a tree that happened to match my dress. As a child, I used to fish in boats on family ponds, very similar to the boats you see in this picture, so the little stop at this sim was a pleasant one for me.

Last Days of November 2

A few final touches.

I always appreciate a few final touches, and though this dress doesn’t need much to dress it up, I thought that a few little things added some class to it.

I picked up a FREE tester lipstick off of the Marketplace by alaskametro in a warm brown color called Cashew. Free testers are a great way to add to your make up palate without breaking your budget, and if you like the results, you can always buy the full version (in fact, I recommend you do, as it’s a great way to support the creator). This tester included a system layer for system heads, as well as huds for Lelutka, Loudmouth, Omega, TMP, and Slink.

And bracelets too.

I also nabbed a pair of matching wooden wrist cuffs. One of my favorite jewelry stores is no longer on the grid, but you can still pick up items off Marketplace from ECCO jewelry. I happened to find that ECCO had a promo for these beautiful wooden wrist cuffs on the Marketplace for just 10L and I couldn’t resist. I felt they suited my autumnal mood… and were a nice finishing touch to a beautiful morning.

Happy travels to you all. Be sure to stop by Yasmina. It’s a beautiful sim for visiting or photography!

Freak Show Fashion

Freak Show Hello Fab Free! It’s great to see you again! Don’t let the creepy monkey or the dramatic lighting fool you, the gifts I have to share with you aren’t creepy at all, rather they are quite fabulous! For this post I have three items to share with you, a group gift dress from Blaraby, a group gift necklace from ECCO, and a pair of group gift shoes from Empire.  This is one of those times when several gifts seem almost meant to go together. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Freak Show Close Ups There are several group gifts to be had a Blaraby, but this “Bambi” dress really caught my eye. I love the style, and the color. This mesh dress comes in standard mesh sizes and fitted sizes for Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara. To get this lovely belted dress, head over to Blaraby and join the group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. There is a one time group join fee of 50 lindens to join the Blaraby group. Don’t forget to pick up the other group gifts while you’re there!

ECCO also has several group gifts available to all their group members. The most recent is their August group gift. This pretty little necklace from ECCO has detailed swallows and a single gemstone. The gift includes a color change hud to change the metal color and the gemstone color. To pick up this sweet gift, join the in world group and click the vendor while wearing your tag. You’ll also see a shelf full of previous gifts near by. The ECCO group has a one time join fee of 200 lindens.

Finally, I’m honestly never disappointed in the group gifts from Empire. September’s group gift is this laced up over the knee heel in two special colors. The gift includes a pair of shoes in red, and in purple to fit the bodies and feet for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP.  Also included with this group gift is a color change hud to adjust the color of the sole, and the metal parts of the shoes. There is a one time join fee for the Empire group of 499 lindens. However, the fee pays for it’s self in the form of an always stellar monthly gift.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Water Color

I found an art installment that was perfect for my mood today… or rather… it helped me find the mood I wanted to be in. I needed something carefree and pretty and uplifting… all of which are things that this WaterColor Wander sim and the beautiful FREE gifts I found for you today will inspire 🙂

WaterColor

EvelineInTheBox is offering a new FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join) that is happy and a bit reminiscent of the flower child era. This Kaley group gift dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. The black trim is nice touch and I found the perfect jewelry to go with it!

WaterColor 2

Ecco is back and in a new main-store location! And this SL Frees & Offers group gift for August is a welcome back gift (there is also a new VIP group gift out that is wonderful too!) and is yours FREE with your SLF&O tag (which is FREE to join). You get both the necklace and the earrings and the box contains three metal choices: black (shown) as well as silver and gold (not shown). I loved the pairing of this fun set with my flowery dress!

These Boots Were Made for Walking

These Boots Were Made for Walking

These boots were made for walking! And for FREE too! You’ll want these boots too! All you need to do is slap the Midnight Mania board at ECRU and these fitmesh thigh high boots can be yours! The board locks down at 250 slaps and at midnight the prize will be delivered. In the package is two colors: rose (shown) and crimson (not shown); as well as fits for Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. They also include an alpha if you need it.

I paired my snazzy new boots with a 10L dress from Entice at the Cart Wash Sale. This is “Love Me Harder.” It also comes with a jacket, which I left off, but the jacket is equally cute and sexy. Love Me Harder comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

Don’t forget about Ecco‘s temporary store closing tonight! I’m sporting a past group gift — these beautiful pearls, as a reminder. Plus, everything in the store is 75L. The store will close temporarily sometime this evening though before reopening later at its new location. Don’t miss your chance at some great deals!

A Daisy’ll Do It

A Daisy'll Do It

Are you still checking out all the great deals at the Cart Wash Sale? I stopped by this morning and picked up this really beautiful business style dress from Rowena’s Design’s Cart called Tara for only 10L. It is all one piece for easy fitting with a pencil skirt and a plunging style cuffed neckline in a sublime pink and burgundy color.

This dress comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh sizes, and you’ll also get Maitreya, Physique, and Belleza too! For just 10L more you can pick up the matching heels which I am showing you in the picture above as well. 🙂

A Daisy'll Do It 2

I paired my dress and heels with the July group gift from Ecco Jewelry, which has been set out early due to the store’s temporary closing (emphasis on temporary). The Store will be closing down temporarily sometime the evening of June 29th. If you are a member of the group, don’t leave, the store will be back!

Be sure to stop by and get all the past group gifts as well as this beautiful Daisies set which is a necklace and matching set of bracelets. (It comes with a color change hud offering 4 different stone colors and 3 metal colors.) Once the store temporarily closes, don’t stress if you miss the July gift. The creator has announced that she will be placing the gift into group notices so that members will have access.

In the meantime, everything in the store is on sale for only 75L… so if you want to get in on some deals, hurry down before the evening of the 29th and you’ll be able to get some top quality jewelry for very good prices. Remember, there are also FREE 2 lucky boards (no group required) and 1 group exclusive lucky board out as well. The group fee is 200L but if you hurry, you’ll have access to MANY MANY past group gifts to fill your inventory with… and I’m sure many future gifts as well, as the creator has emphasized that this is just a temporary closing.

Soft Lavender

If you love Junbug dresses… today is your lucky day! Junbug has generously set out their beautiful mesh Antoinette dress in three different colors for just 30L each. I’m showing you the lovely lavender shade  in the picture above. This dress has a cinched waist and a full skirt with a pretty bust on it and is classic Junbug quality. It would be beautiful for a formal setting… or perfect for roleplay. But don’t delay! This is a Saturday only deal! You only have until the stroke of midnight SLT!

Soft Lavender 2

I paired my new pretty Junbug dress with the latest June group gift from Ecco Jewelry. The group fee is 200L but remember… you get access to lots of past group gifts and in addition there is a group exclusive lucky letter board inside the store for shoppers. And that’s not all! There are two additional lucky boards in the main-store that are completely FREE… no group required! This pretty necklace comes with a color change hud that allows you to choose between three metal choices: silver (shown), gold, or black — for lots of versatility!

Happy Saturday!

Summer Romance

Summer Romance

It’s a beautiful Saturday and I have lots of goodies for you! My pretty look made me think of summer romance… flowers and picnics… and it all began with the new FREE group gift from *COCO* Clothes. The group is FREE to join so the pale pink scoop neck Tee shirt with 3quarter sleeves you see me wearing is yours for 0L. It comes in mesh fits for classic avatars, as well as Maitreya and Slink fits.

Summer Romance 2

I got a notice this morning that one of my favorite hair designers was offering a new VIP Group Gift. If you are a member of the Mina Hair VIP group, you can pick up the Juliet hair for women in essential colors FREE as a group gift right now at the main store. If you need the group tag, it will cost 200L to join, but Mina Hair offers monthly gifts — one for the ladies and one for the gents. And they are always as generous and lovely as this one.

I wanted some jewelry to add to the neckline of my outfit so I stopped by .:ECCO:. because I’d heard that there were new lucky letter boards to try. There are, in fact, three new lucky letter boards! Two are FREE to all, and one is VIP exclusive only. To use the VIP lucky letter board you have to wear your .:ECCO:. group tag (which is 200L), but your fee is well worth it as you get access to monthly group gifts as well as a large number of past group gifts as well.

While I was visiting, my letter came up on the VIP board, and I picked up this Thalia Choker with color change hud. It has a black thong and you can change the beads to 8 possible color choices for mix and match delight!

Summer Romance 3

While I was at .:ECCO:. I noticed that there were two other gifties that were a perfect match for the summer romance feel of my outfit… and these were completely FREE. If you don your FabFree group tag (the group is FREE to join) you can pick up a gift of these Tipped Floral Flats as a gift courtesy of .:ECCO:. In the box, you’ll find pairs to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

I also picked up this FREE Floral Satchel by donning my SL Frees & Offers Group tag. This pretty floral bag is the FREE gift from .:ECCO:. as part of that group and added a nice final touch to my outfit.
