Living a digital life with empty pockets

A blazing good gift at SF Design!

SF Design‘s September freebie is this fabulous blue blazer. When you land, to your left is the womenswear store and to your right is the menswear store. Both of them have a free blazer set out for L$0!

Mar headed to the lovely Weston Marina for her photoshoot, and opted for yellow accessories. The Maya bag is just L$5 from Chuculet, and the Everyday Hoops earrings are just L$1 from the top floor discount room at Ticky Tacky. Other items worn include: The Peiran shirt by Axel (an old group gift), Dante shoes and Voyage sunglasses by Kalnins (not free, or even cheap; sorry!) and the L$10 Kerava Shorts from the Glam Affair/Beauty Avatar Couture discount room. Hair is from the freebie Susan fatpack by Exile at Savoir Hair.

Hop behind the cut for another pic, and a screenshot of the mens’ gift (exactly the same, but cut to fit the male frame!) –

You SHALL go to the ball!

Hey there, Cinderella. Got a ball to go to and you’re still in your newbie rags? Join the Dany French Touch and Leyda Style group (join fee just L$1) and check group notices for the September group gift for men and women. Guys, you get a smart silky shirt and pants, and ladies you get this gorgeous blue gown:

The skin is from the free set of Kalista skins at Tuli‘s mainstore (you can also find the free pack of Gem eyes there. Mar is wearing the sapphire shade here). Head into the big tree and you’ll find them on the stump just inside. The hair is from the free Susan fatpack by Exile at Savoir Hair, and the jewellery is the Ex Stripper set, to be found in the lucky board on the top floor at Ticky Tacky. You can also find the dress for L$1 in the Dany French Touch store. If you need heels, try the Ocean colour of stilettos from Tesla’s free Jane fatpack on XstreetSL.

Just L$1 and you can go to the ball!

New at The Dressing Room Blue

Ooh, that rhymed! ;)

There’s a new collection out at The Dressing Room Blue, and Mar was all over it like a badly-fitting suit! Hair, skins, clothing, poses, accessories, and something that (with a bit of resizing) would suit the boys, too.

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.

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.

Beautiful Brides on a Budget

Weddings are big business in Second Life, and they can cost big money too. Wherever you can save money, you should, and so to that end Mar has dug around and found a few items to help you along on your big day. Blushing brides (and much paler ones!) read on, because I have your dress and veil, your hair, your shoes, and a lovely tropical bouquet for those beach weddings.

Here are two bridal looks. Tropical White Wedding:

And Gothic Bride:

Hop behind the cut for more pics and where to find these items!

It’s a freebie Saturday!

Boy, have I got some goodies for you today! You want ballgowns? I got ballgowns. Male hair? Got that too. Hats? Female hair? Eyeballs? Poses? Yup. The cutest shoes and summer dress ever? Check!

I’m kicking this post off with those cute shoes and that lovely summer dress. Kungler’s May group gift (L$50 to join group) is this lovely silky dress, which Mar has teamed with Baby Monkey’s latest group gift in-store (free to join group), the oh-so-pretty Mimi Sparrow Pumps. A warm welcome back to Pixieplumb from me, too :)

Note: you probably want to move fast for the Kunglers gift. I forgot to check when it leaves group notices before I logged off, but as it’s the May gift and May is almost over chances are it’ll vanish pretty soon.

Hop behind the cut for more fab goodies!
