If you haven’t been over to Wetherby’s yet, you need to drop everything and run! Not only does Wetherby’s offer a NEW GROUP GIFT EVERY DAY (yes, you read that right), but right now, the group is FREE TO JOIN! I don’t know how long the free join will last, but apparently it will be free until further notice. I’m showing you today’s (Tuesday’s) gift, but if you show up too late to get this dress, don’t worry, there will be another freebie tomorrow. Sometimes the gift is a dress, sometimes a swimsuit, lingerie, pant suit… whatever Mrs. W. is in the mood for, so there is plenty of variety. If you are a new resident – or even an old one – this is a great way to build your SL wardrobe, at no cost to you whatsoever! Where else in SL can you find a fab deal like this? 😀

This particular dress comes with skirts in long, conservative, short, and mini lengths, on 3 different system layers, so you have plenty of variety. There’s even a sexy zipper down the back. Check out the Wetherby’s blog for a preview of upcoming freebies for this week.

My shoes are The 8th Unknown Hunt gift from Essenz. They were actually quite easy to tint, and I was surprised that there was a color in the HUD that matched my Pink Fuel Vanilla skin perfectly. My handbag is by Lhaka Designs Inc, and was 5L on the Marketplace. My ring is a free gift from Virtual Impressions. Look for the box by the stairs.

UPDATE: Fab Reader Genna has informed me that Essenz has dropped out of T8UH, so the shoes are no longer free. I’m so sorry about that, ladies! 😦

I just have to mention my hair. It’s not free, but is a new-ish release from LeLutka. I mention it because it’s called Serena. /me giggles. 😎

My Cheeky BFFs and Me

Blogging soon!

I picked up this cute Best Friends Forever Pose at [Kikay] whilst out on The 8th Unknown Hunt, and asked Fab Bloggers and all-around great gals Love Trill and Pru Rexroth to come and help me show it off. These ladies are truly good sports, patiently waiting while I played with windlight and my computer coughed and sputtered (eventually booting me out of SL). Thankfully, The Cheeky Tiramisu Cafe sim is all decked out for autumn, so the ladies had something pretty to look at while they waited. However… when Love started threatening the wildlife, I knew it was time to wrap things up. Anyway, the pose is very sweet, and I think everyone’s fannies look perfect!

Blogging soon!

I wasn’t going to show you the front of my outfit, since it kind of doesn’t match, but I finally decided that the sweater was too cute not to show you. The I ❤ Animals sweater is the September group gift from Strawberry Jam. There are a few other gifts available, so be sure to stop by! My skirt is T8UH gift from Fabouzz. I should warn you that it is mesh and runs verrrrry small. I typically wear a standard size XS in mesh, but believe it or not, I’m wearing a large here. My mouse ears are a previous The Arcade Gacha item from [Auxiliary], and I have no idea why I felt the need to wear them, except that I thought they sort of fit the mood of my mish-mashed ensemble! 😉

Credits for what Love and Pru are wearing are below.

The 8th Unknown Hunt runs until November 30, 2013, and all items are free. You can see my previous coverage of this event here.

The 8th Unknown Hunt – Part I

Every time I install an upgraded viewer, I wonder, “Will this be the one that crashes my 3 year-old computer?” I spent 3 hours on Monday morning doing a clean install of the new Firestorm Beta viewer because I wanted the full value of materials-enabled items. I really prefer Firestorm to the regular SL viewer, but I think this might be “the one.” I’m pretty sure I hear coughing and gasping every time I crank up the graphics, and too many windlight changes practically blow up my graphics card. Worst of all, I’m seeing tile lines again. GAH!! 😦

Anyway, a couple of days ago, I spent some time checking out The 8th Unknown Hunt. Unlike other hunts going on at the moment, this one is not huge, and it includes stores that are new, or that you may never have heard of before. To quote the web site: “The original concept for The Unknown Hunt was to introduce hunters to stores that they had never been to or never heard of before. It was also to help new stores and less established ones gain more awareness and customers.” I love visiting new-to-me stores, so this hunt was a lot of fun! Here, I’m wearing the hunt gift from Olegun, the Halter Dress with Belt and Flower. My pose is one of a set of five poses called PINUP by Uncertain Smile Poses.

Over the mantle, you see 2 more hunt prizes. The Vintage Frames are a gift from Sari-Sari, and the art deco lamp is a gift from Sparrow by Design. The SbD gift also includes a swimsuit, which I’m not showing in this post.

This delicate jewelry is the gift from .sleeping koala. The picture really doesn’t do it justice, as the metalwork around the edges is so intricate that I just couldn’t get a good photo. My pose, which of course, you can’t really see here (sorry!) is one of a set of six poses from Flash Friendly Poses (includes mirrors). To make up for not showing the whole pose, let me share with you that there are LOTS of hunts going on at FFP, so be sure to stop by and pick up all the great gifts! 😀

Could someone please come and get these cats before my dogs see them? Wait… they’re part of the rug?
