Dressed Up from The Free Dove

091522 - Dressed Up from The Free Dove - 01

The Free Dove, as most of you probably already know (since its been blogged numerous times here), has been around for nearly 18 years. It is the SLife’s work of ⒹoⓋє (palomma.casanova) and she has poured her heart and soul into it. You must join the group and wear the tag, it’s free to join, and once you do then you can click on all the gifts that you want on the bottom floor of the venue.

For this post I decided to get dressed there. Don’t worry, I kept clothes on…but as I shopped I picked up things I wanted to share with you and worked to coordinate them together to see how much of a look I could create. Please note there are loads of other awesome items too that I could have continued with but did not want to totally overwhelm you.

  • The first thing is this pretty little black dress from REED. Aline blogged it back in February of 2021 in the animal print, so go check out her styling too! The dress is fit for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya Physique and Venus bodies. The HUD allows you to change it between 6 prints/colors.
  • REED also has the heels I’m wearing. They also are fit for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya Physique and Venus bodies and have 6 colors on the HUD.

There are four other free things to show you still. I had to accessorize this look, of course.

  • One more item set from REED is the jewelry. My bracelet, necklace (and hiding earrings) are all available in one box and are unrigged and resizeable.
  • Next, my hair is a gift from FAGA. It comes in large and small, has 4 style choices on the HUD and 82 colors! There are more customization options on the HUD, too. Caroline wore it in another color back in August of last year.
  • Finally for my makeup: my nails are a gift from GO! Makeup fit for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, Signature Alice and Slink. The HUD gives 8 nail polishes to wear. And my lipstick is a sampler from Shiny Stuffs with 3 red colors. They are for Lelutka Evo & Evo X only.

Until next time!

Support Ukraine in Style!

Stand with Ukraine 1

Second Life is one of the most wonderful worlds in existence.  We can stand together and support our friends in the Ukraine while also loving our Russian friends who never asked their leaders to go to war.  I was so inspired by Cre’s post about supporting the Ukraine, that I quickly hopped onto Marketplace to see what else I could find.  Truly, there are hundreds of freebies out there to show our support for the Ukraine.  I can’t blog them all here, but do a quick search and you will have a closet full of items to show your support.  I found this beautiful FREE Eiko Dress Ukraine by E&E which comes with matching shoes.  I also found the FREE matching Ukraine lipstick by MAD, and a FREE 90s Necklace with a hud including two different peace signs by Melt.

The shoes come with the outfit and match perfectly!

The Fabulous Farmer’s Market!

Amais - Kacey

My gentle readers…I’ve just returned from a week in Vegas.  It was for RL work, but STILL…Vegas!  I came back to SL to find all sorts of fun fabulous things including The Farmer’s Market!  To get these goodies, you go to each store and find the farm stand.  Everything is less than 80L.  This cute outfit named Kacey is by Amias.  This color cost 75L, but there are other colors at full price.  The necklace, adorably enough, is ALSO called Kacey (did they plan that?), and cost 65L at Michan.  There are several different metal choices, but each comes with a HUD for the gem.  The silver is pictured below.

Michan - Kacey

As I catch up with all the SL goodies out on the grid, I found the Farmer’s Market to be a lot of fun!!!

Waiting for Spring with Salt & Pepper

Waiting for Spring

I love to find pretty things in SL.  It makes my heart so happy.  I fell in love with these butterflies, and I knew I needed an outfit that would match perfectly.  So, I went hunting to one of my favorite stores with lots of free gifts…. Salt & Pepper/The Birdcage!  On the day I visited, the group was free, but it’s now up to L300.  But…there are a ton of free gifts for VIPS that make that buy in worth it!

My favorite VIP gift is probably the CBD toilet paper because, I mean, who even knew there was such a thing, but I can’t wear TP, so I found this pretty little number called Mary, instead.  She has a great HUD for mixing and matching the ribbon and lace.  BUT, be sure you have some kind of modesty panty or thong laying about because Mary does not come with one.  I am wearing the universal thong from Kaithleen’s which is also a group gift (the group is 99L to Join) and comes with a sensational HUD.

Dashing to the Diner with Quinnty!

Time for a Milkshake!
Every day, I am eager to read my blogging sister, Aline’s, Fabulous Finds post.  I run around and grab all the things I love, and when I spotted that uber sweet jacket at Quinnty’s that she posted about here, I just had to have it.  I joined the group (50L) and grabbed it, but THEN I looked at ALL the sweet Group gifts for VIPS, and, wow, I was addicted.  There are at least 10 of them but probably more.  It was hard to pick just one to showcase for you, but I picked Mae because it comes with everything for a complete outfit!  You get the cool jacket, the jeans, and these super cute sneakers!!!

The Sneakers!
For your 50L group fee, you  also get a store credit for 50L, so you do get your money back to use on some of the other cute things for sale in the store!!  I love the colors and the creativity of this outfit, but now I am ready for a milkshake!!!!

Steampunk for the Wanderlust Weekend Win @ Infiniti

Steampunk Desi
I get soooo excited when the weekend sales come out.  Over the years, I’ve learned that fashion trends in SL are just like fashion trends in RL.  For example, right now, it’s impossible to find short nails because the long nails are all the rage.  But, weekend sales make it possible for me to find unique things that are around town and find new designers.  I still struggle with finding shorter nails, but I hold out hope!  Wanderlust Weekend is one of my favorite weekend events because I truly find unique new goodies all over the grid.

I had not heard of Infiniti Projects before, and while I don’t normally wear Steampunk or Apocalyptic wear, I am fond of the look from time to time.  Through the free Wanderlust Weekend hud (version 1.1), I popped into the store to find a TON of 50L goodies!  The outfit above is called Shandi.  The top and jacket are 50L and the skirt is 50L.  There are four leather colors (black, brown, burgundy and green).  They also had a corset on 50L special.  I checked out their prices for other fine threads, and they are really pretty good.

While I am not sure these hot sales will be up when you get there, they are definitely on the watch list for future Wanderlust deals.

Sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

Lucky Board Score @ LSR

Lucky Board Gold @ LSR
Back in the day, my friend Daliah and I would spend all day running around the grid slapping boards, sitting in chairs, and finding the best freebies on the grid. Daliah had avatars in almost every letter and number so she was sure to score outfits for all of them.  They had different personalities and styles.  Whew, that was a lot of work.  Desi, however, has always just been one avatar, and all her lucky scores are the reason you get lost upon teleport…because her inventory is carrying around lucky chair items since 2006!

Sadly, Daliah returned to RL and took all her avatars with her.  But, I am keeping the pace and have a few favorite haunts that have produced beautiful threads.  I’ve already raved about Siss Boom’s FREE NGN lucky chairs here, but today I am going to take you to another of my other favorite haunts…LSR.  There is a 99L buy in, ladies, BUT, I promise you, it’s worth the cost.  You get so much FREE stuff by being a member!!!

Both the Sexy Shakia outfit and Yamileh boots in this outfit are from the lucky boards.  LSR also has amazing group gifts and 50% VIP Exclusives (limited copies), and right now, VIPS can get a 300L credit for the store.  My blogging sister, Aline, blogged about that sweet deal here.

I’ve done a wee close up so you can appreciate the nice detail of these boots!!!
A Closeup of the boot detail.

The Aqua Sexy Shakia is a matching top and skirt and comes in the following sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis

The aqua Yamileh boots come in the following sizes:

  •  Maitreya
  • Freya
