Snow joke!

The new monthly freebie from SF Design (male and female versions available) is a gorgeous, snuggly-warm red duffle jacket. Mar decided to wrap up warm and head off to Toggenburg sim for some winter fun!

Hop behind the cut for more pics and info on everything else she’s wearing!

Dressing Room and other stuff!

New items at The Dressing Room, peeps, and I have some other goodies for you, too!

My featured Dressing Room items are the new Helena 02 skin from Tuli (L$65), the Somebody’s Baby hair from Shag (L$70), the Gonzo Jeans from Fishy Strawberry (L$55), and the Open Cargidans from So Many Styles (L$50). Please note that the open cardigans are just that: open! You’ll need to find a top to go underneath them, as Mar has done here with the top from the dress by A-Bomb :)

The cardigan pack includes beige (shown here) and khaki, while the jeans include a skinny version (shown here) and a loose version. For more pics, including close-ups of the hair and skin, and some fabby free new eyes and funky socks, hop behind the cut!

New Dressing Room Blue collection, and three free sets of skins!

Happy weekend! It’s a flipping hot one here in the UK (well, hot for us, anyway!) and Mar’s been hopping all over the grid today to bring you some goodies. The main subject of this blogpost is the new collection at The Dressing Room Blue, but I also have a limited time offer (this weekend only!) free skin from Tuli to show you, plus Subscribe-o-matic and group gift skin packs from Nomine and Sn@tch.

The Dressing Room ~ July Week 01

I also have for you a limited-time offer on a fabby pair of boots with built-in AO, and a ton of great freebie hair.

Hop behind the cut!

New collection at The Dressing Room Blue

The Dressing Room Blue (another variant of The Dressing Room) has set out its new collection, and in it you’ll find everything from frocks to hair, jewellery to poses. Mar snapped up some of the items to showcase here, and put together some fabby looks! Both Dressing Rooms feature cut-price items from some of Second Life’s top designers, and while they tend to be a tad above the remit of this blog nothing costs more than L$70, so I make an exception for both of them ;)

PLEASE NOTE: All of these items are available at The Dressing Room Blue location (link above). The only non-Dressing Room Blue items shown here are the Tuli skin, the Amacci hair, and the House of Curios footwear.

Pretty it up

EDIT: The Dressing Room items featured in this post have now GONE. See this post for some items from the new collection.

Let’s get glamorous, girls. Today I’m going to blog about some cheap stuff, and about some stuff that’s a teeny bit over the blog’s L$50 remit, but which is worth getting. Today Mar visited four places: The Dressing Room, the new Dressing Room Blue, the Beauty Avatar/Glam Affair Discount section, and FabFree. What did she get? A ton of lovely stuff, from dresses and pantsuits, to free and cheap skins from big-name designers. (And boys, this post isn’t just for girls. Although I’ve only blogged girly stuff, hop behind the cut anyway to get the SLurl for the Glam Affair Discount section, because they have a LOT of male cheapies there, including skins, shapes, and clothing.)

For those who want to know when The Dressing Room changes its designer stock, join the Subscribe-o-matic while you’re there.

50% – 75% sale on at Sn@tch all weekend

There is a 50% – 75% sale on at Sn@tch all weekend, until the end of Monday. Everything except the New Releases wall is on sale, including all menswear at 50% off and more.

Some of you may think that Sn@tch only does punky, gothy, slutty kinds of clothing. Well I’m here to show you that’s not the case. Ivey has been branching out for a long time, making some elegant clothing, and lovely summery outfits and separates. It’s well worth your while hopping over to Sn@tch this weekend to check out the sale items. You can also use gift cards from the Sn@tch store, to get even more off.

Mar spent L$472, which might seem like a lot for me to be blogging about, but what she bought was the following:

Peepshow Tops – eight colours for L$125 (that’s just over L$15 per top)
Sassy Cord Skirts – six colours for L$100 (that’s just over L$16 per skirt)
Wednesday Skirts – six colours for L$112 (that’s just over L$18 per skirt)
Wicked Winter Leather Pants – eight colours for L$135 (that’s L$17 per pair)

When she shopped she had an eye on colours, and picked the tops first, then found skirts and pants in colours that she could wear with the tops. That means she can mix and match all over the place! Hop behind the cut for a few ideas she put together with those items.

New default avatars!

Oh my gosh, what a surprise awaited me when I checked the Library folder of my Inventory. Under ‘clothing’ and then ‘initial outfits’ are twelve new default avatars created by Adam n Eve. I tried on all the female options, and girls you need to look at them! If nothing else, the shoes and hair deserve places in your main folders, and some of the outfits are fabby, too! Guys, there are outfits for you, too, but you need to check those out yourselves; I didn’t have time to get around to them today.

Here’s a sample outfit: the Female Rocker. It comes with everything you see here, including two colours of t-shirt.

Hop behind the cut for the others.

Cowgirl style hits the Freebiesphere this weekend, thanks to an incredibly generous gift from Hoorenbeek. Ladies, those boys have put out some AWESOME boots just for us, just for this weekend!

Here, Mar has teamed them with one of the free dresses available at Trashy Girls In Style, one of Hairy Situations’ free new release styles, plus a freebie cowgirl hat (re-tinted) found on Xstreet SL, as well as just one of the gorgeous skins available in Beauty Avatar’s L$10 room:

Boys, you’ve not been left out of the Hoorenbeek goodies. For this weekend only, you can grab this fab pair of olive pants, which comes with three great prim belts and prim cuffs. Mar’s male incarnation has teamed them with freebie Slide hair from MADesigns, L$50 colour-change Leather Loafers from House of Curios, and a shirt that I didn’t realise was no longer available until the pics were already taken (sorry, boys!)

Lastly, here’s a better look at the new release gift from Hairy Situations. You get two styles, in normal and fullbright options:

Hairy Situations
Trashy Girls In Style
House of Curios
Beauty Avatar L$10 room
Harmony Hat (Xstreet SL)
