It’s been a little while since I stomped around SL in some fun street fashion. I feel like I haven’t donned a jean skirt in ages, and I’m kinda feeling very myself in this look. I love changing things up, but I also seem to always ensure that things feel “me” when it comes to style… and I’ve got a place for you to visit to do just that.
As you may have heard from our coverage over the past few months, The Free Dove is no more. Sadly, the owner, Palomma Casanova passed away back in January from a long illness. She was so loved in SL, however, that she inspired people to continue her legacy of providing free and high quality items to the SL community in the exact same spot. However, this place has been renamed Palomma Plaza in her honour. You’ll find many of the designers who had their gifts out at the last location have chosen to participate again, and the layout, building and general feel and ethos is exactly the same. Tell your friends, it’s worth a visit. I joined the new Palomma Plaza group, activated my tag, and picked up a bunch of freegifts. Here’s what I’ve got on:
FREEtop by Grumble sized for Erika, Gen X, Gen X Curvy, Kupra, Maitreya, Legacy & Reborn
FREEskirt with an extensive jean HUD by Tastic sized for Freya, Gen X, Gen X Curvy, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya & Reborn
FREEnail polish by Alaskametro with Maitreya and Omega appliers (check out all the options in the HUD below)
We wish continued success to Palomma Plaza, and hope you’ll give a thought to Ms. Casanova and her legacy when you stop by.

Hey FabFree! We are still covering the FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt. Although St. Patrick’s Day has come and gone this year, I still love all the green and clovers and as an Irish gal, I can rock an Irish look in green all year long! So, here are some more subdued prizes on the hunt that you can hopefully wear after St. Pat’s day. The hunt runs until March 31st, so there’s still time to grab some prizes before all the fun disappears.
Grumble has a really colourful and artistic dress on the hunt, called the “Power Dress” in the Irish edition, and it only costs 5L. They also have a fun pair of “I pinch back” panties I am wearing underneath, but you can’t see them under my dress in the photo. Check out their hunt key HERE to see what the panties look like.
Sizes Included (dress)
Gen X Classic & Curvy
Sizes Included (panties)
Tonic Curvy & Fine
My pretty earrings are another hunt prize on the FabFree St. Patty’s Day Hunt at Piixcys. Aline blogged more of their hunt gifts HERE, so read her post for more details about the prizes at this lovely store. The earrings are just too cute, and they only cost 3L on the hunt.
On a side note, today has been a bit of a “whatever” day overall. Both my eyeshadow and lipstick are great gifts from Whatever, a store that’s new to me and has beautiful makeup!
Cre blogged the eyeshadows previously, so read her original post HERE about this lovely free FabFree group gift.
The other gift I am wearing from Whatever today is the lovely “frostbite” lipstick applier, which is their latest TeleportHub Group Gift. The TeleportHub group costs 10L to join and it gets you lots of gifts around the grid when you join this group. You can find a full listing of their exclusive group gifts HERE, so it’s well worth the 10L join fee.

Freesweater by Grumble sized for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Slink, Hourglass, TMP & Venus

Guess what? It’s time for Day 5! I was feeling very classy today with this post, but with a vintage twist. I love each of these pieces that are included in this post and had to share them.
The beautiful chair I am sitting on is today’s gift at Zerkalo. The fabric is such a lovely vintage/shabby-chic design. There are several PG animations included as well. Zerkalo‘s advent calendar is FREE for group members and the group is FREE to join.
I swooned over the luggage/travel decor in the center. Aesthetically at least, I would have loved to live in that era. But I have to remember these things were normal then and didn’t look old and vintage and cool like they do us now. This decor set (all one piece) is the gift from Yasum today. I got a cool surprise today when I was writing this up…it has poses!!! Three female poses and three male. Yasum‘s gifts are FREE with no group needed.
Next I have to share this gorgeous little Christmas tree from Lelutka. I didn’t realize this but apparently they send a FREE tree every year to their group members (FREE to join). This is not part of an advent calendar, but such an awesome gift, I had to tell you all about it. And it totally fit the theme I was going for.
Now…this dress. This is what started this whole post. I opened this FREE dress gift up from Next Door Designs for Day 4 (still available) and I fell in love! First I need to give a little instruction on getting their gifts. You must join the group, which is FREE to join (you can right click the calendar and edit to find the group name) and then you right click and select to pay L$1 on the day you want to receive. That L$1 is then immediately refunded. Here are the fits for this dress:
Belleza Freya & Isis
Slink Hourglass & Physique
I threw on this lovely white stole from Day 3 of the Glitzz advent calendar, also still available. The calendar at Glitzz is FREE with no group needed. This stole comes fit for:
Legacy & Perky
Maitreya & Petite
The last thing I want to talk about is this jewelry from Versois et Mailloux. The earrings are from Day 4 and the necklace from today. Both are still available. They are unrigged and come with an HUD. You do need the group to get the gifts at Versois et Mailloux, but it is FREE to join and the gifts are FREE as well.
There are a few other things in the photos from advent calendars too so be sure to check out all the credits below!

It’s never too early to start stockpiling dresses for all of your holiday party needs and I’ve got a great one to show you today. Just don’t ask me why I have a Christmas tree ornament dangling from my mouth, because the answer is “I don’t know.” Maybe because it was cute? Or because I’ve seen other way nicer avatars than mine with things hanging from their faces and I wanted to try it for myself? But mostly I. Don’t Know. It is kind of cute though.
To The Point
Right. My other reason for being here is to tell you about The Black Friday Bazaar. This is a great little event to hit up – not too big and well organized AND with a freebie at each stall. I just had to join the free Evil Bunny Hunts group and click on the little black gift bag that each vendor has out. A few of them didn’t work for me but most of them did and they are full of lovely free gifts. The ones that I’m showing are:
The dress that I’m wearing – such a sexy slinky little number and I tried to give you a glimpse of the back but wait till you see the whole thing. Hot without letting any of your assets hang (all the way) out.
My mouth ornament proclaiming that I am in fact Santa’s Baby, in the most festive of ways.
Both gifts are free and the bazaar runs until November 29th.
October is here and it’s time to get our spookiness on. Time to break out those Halloween outfits and have more fun. The madness is just starting so get yourself ready. I’ve got news about a few goodies from Bundles and the Mid-season Mystery Fair & Hunt. When I worked as a venue hostess I would start wearing Halloween costumes on October 1st because I love dressing up. Of course the same was true for other holidays also.
Not so spooky looking
After reading a post about Bundles by Aline here, I realized I’d never been to Bundles. Face Palms & screams ZOMG! There are a number of freegifts available and you don’t have to join a group to pick them up. Bundles will be running until October 16th so put the event on your list of places to gather more “stuff”. I know you’ll find something you like or just have to have.
My cute little cat cropped tee is too adorable for words. I love his spidey web whiskers. It’s a gift from Grumble for Bundles and it comes exclusively in this blue. It’s fitted for these sizes: Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus; Maitreya; and SLink Hourglass & Physique.
I paired the tee with a skirt from Cleo Design. The skirt is part of the Witch 2022 outfit that is still on sale for $25L at the main store. Sizes included are: Belleza Freya, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, and SLink Hourglass. In addition to the top and skirt a witch hat & magic pumpkin are included.
Last but certainly not least is the spider laying over my belly button. I swear I have better hygiene in real life! I found this goodie on the Mid-season Mystery Fair & Hunt at the [Lion Style] booth. The Spider Belly Button Pack comes with an unrigged version and rigged versions for: Belleza Freya & Isis, Legacy, Maitreya, & SLink Hourglass & Physique.
Toodles – I have to go scratch my belly button now.
