Back To School!

In SL, going back to school means . . . every girl's excuse to break out the li'l miniskirt and cutesy backpack -- without the annoyance of actually having to study. I know the plaid miniskirt look is what we all think of, but I opted for something a bit more elegant today.

Check out this ivory white cableknit sweater and skirt set that got me into the studious mood. This classic look is all about the accessories: the darling double rosettes barrette and the multi-rope black pearls choker are such fun fashion extras. This store G&G Designs gives out a free outfit every Monday (check the back wall) and this was today's freebie. If you like this outfit, they always have last week's freebie on the side wall (near the Lucky Chair) so it will be free next week as well.

For a more girlish schoolgirl look, I also tried this look with an updo hair + the luscious candy jewelry from Violet Voltaire. Don't these rainbow pastel earrings + lolli necklace look simply lickable?

The apple bubblegum was just was just for attitude, heh.

There have been some supercute freebie backpacks recently. The dripping ice cream/cookies one is from Needful Things + the camo one is from the store where everything is free, the wonderful Magi Take Shop. So cute!
There are soooo many superfun hunts going on now. Gavin and I grabbed the hilarious "Green Eggs & Ham" gift from the Dr. Seuss hunt at Famish. These adorable pink ham slices come with a scripted face animation and even a tiny li'l fork. Here we are at the school cafeteria where I don't think Gavin was enjoying his slice so much.
Look for these looks + more freebie finds in my "Better Quality Freebies" Shopping List #7 for this week.

Love + fashionista kisses to all!

Fave Freebie (+ Non-Free) Shoes of the Week!

My feets have been really happy with some of the freebie shoes recently so I wanted to show you some of my fave gifties at the moment. These 1st two are from B.O.U.D.O.I.R. Isn't the wavy platform heel on the right-hand style absolutely insane? Totally worth the loooong-ass camping times. Love the detail here: the straps on the left-hand style are shaded slightly, so they look realistically shadowed against the skin. Both come with a HUD for adjusting skin tone + nailpolish color.
These next two designs are from the current hunt at Heart & Sole (these gifts are in the shoe store; the hunt continues thruout funiture + clothing stores also). **NOTE: There seems to be something wrong with the invisible prims that come with the sage-colored "Petals Green" platforms on the left, so I wore them with the shoe base/invisibles from the "Princess" heels on the right (both from the same store) + it fits perfectly. Love the cute prim toes + small trailing flower detail, so pretty.The current MM board gift at Envy Designs offers an excellently done knee-high tall black "Goth" boot that is really worth grabbing. These "banded" silver buckles are so cute + I like the fact that there's not too much metal. The black is a rich soft black and its an elegantly shaped round/oval toe. The "over the knee" parts were too big for me (and these are non-modifiable) so I left them off here.

These versatile boots are so sexy with any short skirt but I adore the current free group join gift from Icewerk. I love that it's a turtleneck mini-dress; so hard to find good ones. The wide keyhole opening in front is tres boobielicious + this classic design is just beautifully made.
I paired this dress with the plaid "'80's" red cuffs bracelets on sale for $10L now at Dark Mouse. As always, their jewelry is impeccably detailed + you get them for both arms, so fun!

I found some ridic cute patent leather booties I loved so much that I purchased them in 2 different colors. These are NOT free + the "Jimmy Chau" brand name is a supercheesy ripoff of the RL brand. Still, the rich saturated color, the perfectly shiny cherry + blueberry-hued patent leather -- oooooh so yummy. Love this tapering skinny heel shape too.Finally, check out what I picked up from the MM board at AXE this week. These open lace capris are really unusual + just awesome for showing off a really fine quality oily skin. I paired this with my fave teeny black latex bikini from Nyokos (not free but reasonably priced at $50L). The Nyokos store also seems to mysteriously give you "prizes" if you hang out there long enough which is pretty cool (I've won body oil + bikinis just by being there browsing). This look was a big hit with my guy, hee hee.Look for these looks + more freebie finds in my "Better Quality Freebies" Shopping List #6 for this week.

Love + fashionista kisses to all!

Skins Skins Skins!

There are so many free or $1L skins of such great quality right now that we wanted to show you some of our faves. Most of these will be in my "Better Quality Freebies" Shopping List #6 this week (the Tuli skin on Margaux was listed in list #5 last Saturday -- search the Freebie Fashionista group's past Notices).

Here I am wearing 2 of my faves. I *adoooore* this Corrupted Innocence crying skin (its even better than the Mother Goose "YAN" crying skins available in Mother Goose 's lucky boards). The red lipstick on this skin is TO. DIE. Really exquisite if you like crying skins. The yellow bandaid skin on the right is ADORABLE and I soooo heart the freckles. Amazing detail.

LEFT: Corrupted Innocence - Eva Skin Tan/Navy - free (Black Pearl hunt gift)
RIGHT: Mother Goose - "Mary" skin - $1L

These next 2 are so different. Check the suuuper smokey blue eye makeup on the JE*Republic skin on the left; and the girlish, totally innocent KEI skin on the right -- complete with butterfly!

LEFT: JE*Republic - Anniversary skin - $1L
RIGHT: KEI - "Summer Skin" - $1L

Finally a word on 2 skins that are soon becoming faves. This Freebie Fashionista hardly ever pays to join groups but after hearing so much noise about the Atomic skins on the blogs, I decided to eat the $250L joining fee for this special anniversary "Cupcake" skin gift. Can I just say: freckles + smoky eye makeup + ambiguous "frosting" smears (yeah, right!) around the mouth -- SO SO WORTH the $250L. Apparently they give skin gifts ALL the time. LOVE!!

LEFT: Atomic -Honey - CakeFace Freckles - free group gift (BUT $250L group join fee)
RIGHT: Untame- "Maya" Illusion skin - from the "Bringing Your Skin to Life" new line (as yet unreleased)

A very very special notice about the skin on the right: ***Untame designer Kinadra Skytower has very generously offered to do a VERY SPECIAL FREEBIE FASHIONISTA $1L GIFT ON THIS NORMALLY $1200L SKIN -- WHICH IS AS-YET-UNRELEASED!!! WE WILL SEND THE NOTICE OUT THIS THURSDAY 8/27/09 SOMETIME AROUND 12 PM SLT. OUR GROUP IS GETTING THE SCOOP SO DO NOT MISS IT!!

Next, our gorge friend and model Margaux Dufaux is modeling the much-discussed Tuli Kalista light 01 freebie. See why she only needs to blink to make the guys trip all over her? So unfair.

Here is Marg modeling these lovely Starlight skins that are currently free. The innocent look is back! Here's Marg wearing "Polyxo" (light brow, eye A, nose B) on the left and "Eudora" (light brow, eye B, nose B, freckles) on the right.

Next, our lovely friend and model Rene Cadernow graciously offered to model 2 of our other faves, more from Mother Goose. Here is their newest $1L gift called "Donna" (love the rosy pink lips + teeny tiny tears tattoo!)

Next also from Mother Goose is the "CandiLip" $1L gift. The added punch of color in the center of the lip is sooo dramatic and cool.

We hope you have enjoyed our little skin showing! These + more in my "Better Quality Freebies" Shopping list #6 this week.

Love + fashionista kisses to all!

Soft, worn brown leather? Check. Sexy strappy contraptions with lots of buckles detail? Check. So freakin' boobielicious it should like, illegal? Check check. Check check check check check.

Of course, no fashionista adventurer would be complete without all the li'l fashion extras, so I added these adventure-ready boots from
DeeTalez with darling Burberry plaid detail. As my friend Marg might say, kyooot.

I know that this is prolly 1 of my few posts that doesn't feature those fashionista freebies that you know I adore, but this outfit was soooo worth those $L. Silly
moi wasn't personally familiar with the League store so now my $L are in peril. But just loooooook at how fierce my boobies are here. I have a feeling I'm in for some crazy escapades with this look, heh heh. My SL guy friends hearting this look? Cheeeeeck.

Strike A Pose (ProPoser Hunt + other free poses)

I was chillin' with my good friend and fellow model Arizona Wirefly at her lovely beach home when we decided to play around with some poses + a facial emoter HUD that I found in my inventory (mine was unnamed, but it's the same basic one offered at aDORKable for $0L).

Here's a perky li'l friends pose from Taisaya (they're offering 3 free poses at their main store). This one's "Cute Girls Posing 01." See how the facial emoter was good for some laffs.
This pose "Rejection" from 7th Sin Poses (ProPosers hunt stop #37) demonstrates how we've all had those moments when the only response you can have to someone else is listen you just gotta just talk to tha hand. We didn't even need the facial emoter for this one -- the hand sorta said it all.
Our friend + male model Gavin McGinnis came over and like most guys, he was in an athletic kind of mood. Luckily we had just picked up the breakdancing hunt gifts from Sunflower Poses (ProPosers hunt stop #25), so Gavin challenged Arizona and I to a li'l breakdancing battle. Maybe Gavin thought he had it easy 'cuz of Arizona's innocent looks. He wouldn't be the first. Heh.
Turns out that Arizona and Gavin were both totally ready for America's Best Dance Crew . . . I mean just check out that one-handed leg extension by Arizona! That kinda balance takes talent, I tell ya. Me, I nearly broke a hip trying that back arch thing. Thank God for SL yoga.
Here's me and Gavin in front of Arizona's house doing "Wipeout" from Lyndz-Matic (ProPosers hunt stop #27). See what happens when you don't join the Freebie Fashionista group? I almost got Gavin here too. Don't test me.
Gavin wanted to show off his macho superiority after that, so we met up with 2 of our more adventurous gal pals, the lovely DreamAngel Larnia and Ms. Freebie Fashionista herself Margaux Dufaux. Here's Gavin rockin' the "Juggling Ball" pose from aDORKable Poses (ProPosers hunt stop #22). Girls? Juggling balls? Same diff.
Some of the hunt poses came with props -- these are sooooo fun! I just adore all the crazy things that you can only do in SL. Check out me doing a near-faceplant atop this giant cupcake in "CuppyCake" from KO Poses (ProPosers hunt stop #14).

Btw these ripped camo pants + shredded tank top from Crazy are some of the best MM board freebie gifts around right now. . . great camping gifts too. I paired this with the aaaahdorable "Embroidery" necklace from Bliensen + MaiTai (a Skipping Stones hunt gift).

Later, Arizona and I felt like going dancing, so we met up with our good friend and model Ela Teardrop for some boogie action. Here's "Disco Night!" from DARE (ProPosers hunt stop #23). I just love seein' mah girls embracing their inner go-go dancers. Aren't they smokin' hawt here?
This raspberry pink zip-up dress is one of my new faves from Icewerk. As always, what makes it exceptional is the attention to detail: love the teeny tiny ribbed texturing and this rich, super-saturated fuscia hue. Yummy.

Here's us making use of the facial emoter again. See how Arizona comes off as all sweet and precious? Me -- yeah, not so much.
These poses are also superfun to combine together. Gavin, Dream and I had some laffs just messin' around. Here we linked the ProPosers hunt gifts from Snooky's ("You're The One That I Want"), Penny Deadful Arcade ("When The Whip Comes Down") and Mela's ("He's All Mine").
Dream: "Hey you. Yeah, you. C'mere, hot stuff."
Gavin: "Is this lady talkin' to me?"

Me: "That's my man!"

[all 3 collapse in giggles]

OK, so maybe me + my friends have a juvenile sense of humor. But doesn't life always seem to regress back to high school anyway? Which reminds me, I'm putting together a "Back To School" post soon, so drop me a notecard in-world if you'd like to model for that. I.e. the perfect excuse to explore more of our juvenile humor, heh.

As always, love + fashionista kisses to all!!

Lucky Chair Stalkin': AyYaiYai

All you spendthrifts know the irresistible lure of the Lucky Chair. Why oh why would you ever pay for something when you could just patiently wait for your lucky letter (or the coveted "?") to come up? Suuuure there's times when you just can't deal with it, but it can also be superfun to grab a few friends to keep you company + chit-chat the time away until you win.

Check out this yummy li'l creation currently in the lucky boards at AyYaiYai: their "Rich Mini Dress." Rich indeed for its fabulous ruching detail. I adore the candy colors of this dress . . . the colors are so saturated that you don't need a ton of accessories here. Each lucky board on the bottom row is a different color + there's even camping for other items right next to it (so you can multi-task while you wait for your letter to come up).

I paired this with the candy-like rainbow beads from Jodiefied and white mother-of-pearl hearts bracelets from U&R Dogs. The skin is from Exodi (isn't this pink lipstick so luscious? Exodi's skins truly have some of the "glowiest" body shading I have EVER seen) + this poofy headband hair was free this week courtesy of Hair Solutions' super generous members appreciation gift, a $200L gift card.
The shoes are some of my fave's -- J's (not free but the Pearl color fatpack is sooo versatile + these strappy platforms are some of the prettiest I've seen).

For photographers, AyYaiYai also has a supercute $1L pose special downstairs (with the couple facing each other, legs intertwined -- sooo great for photographers). This store also is participating in the Proposers hunt (do not miss this hunt!).

Finally, a word about the tat. This is the new "Butterfly" tattoo from the extremely talented Hunain Bellic of HUZ-Tats. If you have not yet grabbed this store's Angel's Wings dollarbie gift (near the lounger, in gift boxes in the front) you MUST go get it. Every gf I have sent there has raved about these wings. In short: these are hand-drawn tattoos, with meticulous detail + shading that we are hard-pressed to find in SL. Sooo realistic + soft-looking. Just beware -- your $L are in serious danger the second you walk into this store.

Dress: AyYaiYai - Rich Mini Dress - shown here in Blue Marguerite, Blush, Light Sea Green (all 3 colors on different lucky boards) - free
Bracelets: U&R Dogs - Duchess Bracelet Samantha (white mother-of-pearl hearts w/ yellow gold) -
previously free (Cinderella slippers hunt gift)

Necklace in middle: U&R Dogs - Jingle Jangle Heart Necklace Samantha (white mother-of-pearl hearts w/ yellow gold) -

Tale of a Pink Dress

When you hear Digit Darkes is having a sale -- let alone a PINK sale -- you run. Me ran. And after scooping this pink, feathery, gold-trimmed, super-textured creation for a cool $100L (compared to their regular prices, this really did feel like a steal) I wanted to take this delectable piece of girlie heaven on a li'l SL grid skipping.

Here's me + male model Gavin McGinnis admiring the glorious light beams within the abandoned water shack in the half-immersed water world of REZ. On the accessories front I just loooved pairing the gold bust and waist ribbing with the supersexy yellow gold bangles + choker necklace from Oceane's Designs. Hello fashionista slave girl look, LOL.

Here we are outside of the shack. Don't ya just love it when nature matches your dress? Oh and the gold and pink shoes came with, which made the loss of Lindens a bit le$$ painful.

Next a pit stop to the last Midsummer Night's Dream hunt location to snatch up the supersassy talking panda bear gift at the end of the hunt. Supersassy as in, it actually scolds you in public chat + if provoked it will even smack your friends across the face!! Our friend model Adrianne Lanley met up to grab him too 'cuz, well, it takes one troublemaker to know another. Let's just say this mouthy li'l panda utterly failed to win her over.

Meanwhile the dress was dying for some dancing already, so Gavin and I hopped over to Tempura for SL's finest ballroom dancing action. The couples dances are just too cute here. I mean the pose balls are pink and orange for crissakes. Just don't go alone or you'll be like that sad dude standing in the corner.
Well my pink dress' big night on the town was winding down, but no date would be complete without a goodnight kiss. We found a secret crystal cave was perfect for a li'l sunset smooching. Btw I'm not normally that frisky with guys. Musta been the dress.

Hair: group gift - Cassie - in Brown - free
Earrings: U&R Dogs - Cinderella slippers hunt gift -
Angel's Wings tattoo: HUZ Tats -
Dress and Shoes: Digit Darkes -
formerly reduced to $100L
Multi-Hoop Gold Bangles + Necklace: Oceane's Designs (not yet available) -
not free

This grid skipper's outtie for the day. Fashionista love + kisses to all!!
