Here’s the skinny

Some new skins for you!

First up we have the group gift from Exodi VIPs (L$250 to join) of these beautiful Isolde skins. You’ll get four skintones, with varying cleavage and brow options:

The other two skins that I have for you today are both from the new collection at The Dressing Room. I’m not going to blog the collection this week but the usual suspects are there (GLOW Studio, Glam Affair, Aoharu, and more) and boys, you should head over because there’s a great hair and hat combination from CheerNo there for you this week.

Hop behind the cut for the other two skins :)

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

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.

Hop behind the cut!

Friday night: the LBD

We all need one, don’t we, girls? The famous Little Black Dress, or LBD. Today, Mar has put together a look around an LBD she has featured before, because there are some fab new group gifts around that go perfectly with it.

The dress is Elsinore from the Glam Affair/Beauty Avatar Couture Discount Room (see this post for how to get there once you’ve landed). For just L$10 you’ll get the dress and the gorgeous lacy mask for your eyes. The shoes are a group gift from Baby Monkey (free to join: the gift is in group notices together with a white pair of shoes, as well) – the Dita pumps, complete with fishnets (you can also wear them without the fishnets). The hair is a group gift (free to join) called Donna from Adam n Eve, and you’ll get black, blue, and ‘mermaid’ (a deep sea-blue-green) shades. Search for Adam n Eve sachi Vixen update group and you’ll find the gift in group notices.

Lastly, the eyes are free at Tuli‘s mainstore. You’ll find five beautiful gemstone eye colours in a purple giftbox inside the store. Mar is wearing the sapphire version. Also inside you’ll find a pink cylinder right behind the eyes, containing a free pack of Tuli’s Kalista skins in four tones. Lastly, for group members (L$250 to join, and have your group tag active when you click!) there’s a green box containing a preview of Tuli’s Tanya skin in two brow colours, which is shown in the preview image here.

Hop behind the cut for more pics!

Summer by design

Here’s a midweek quickie from me! SF Design’s latest in-store freebie for the girls is this great summer set of red cargo cut-offs with a cropped floral top. Mar has teamed them with the burgundy colour of Baby Monkey’s Glitter FlipFlops (just L$10), the new “Orchid” group gift skin from Exodi VIPs Group (L$250 to join; Mar’s wearing the Nuit tone here, but you get five skintones, and light/dark brows with freckle/non-freckle versions in each tone) and the Chocolate colour of Amacci’s free in-store fatpack of “Adena” hair:

Note: The Exodi skins went out to the group on June 5th and will be in group notices for just 14 days.

Boys, there’s also a freebie at SF Design for you. I didn’t have time in-world to change into my male incarnation to take pics, so I snapped the ad board for you. Hop behind the cut for the boys’ freebie and those all-important SLurls!

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!

Group gifts from Ivalde, Sn@tch, Exodi, and Baby Monkey, plus a Newbie Special from Ivalde

I’m cramming a lot into today’s post, peeps. Four group gifts, plus a very special newbie offer for female avatars less than 30 days old.

First up, let’s try and hurry Summer up with Exodi’s fabulous bikini and capris gifty! Exodi’s group costs 250L to join, and the gifts range from full skin packs to eyes to clothing. This group is a keeper, if you have some money to spare to join. Mar has teamed the Exodi gift with the new group gift from Baby Monkey (free to join) – the colour-change Kroko Pumps:

Hop behind the cut for the other gifts, and the newbie offer!

Pay-to-join group gifts

More and more large store groups are moving towards a pay-to-join policy, which I can only assume is partly to prevent people from joining the group, grabbing a group freebie, and then leaving the group again. The first stores to do this tended to be the skin stores, and understandably so, with skins being the price they are and many skin stores offering full fatpacks as gifts. More and more stores are opting for this method, and the gifts are usually well worth the join fee.

Today Mar is highlighting some gorgeous gifts from pay-to-join groups. Please be aware that you need to remain in these groups once you’ve paid to join. If you leave and want to re-join, you’ll have to pay again. (For a handy reminder of which groups you paid to join, either jot down the group names on the ‘My Notes’ tab of your own profile, or check the front page of the group’s info window. The join fee will be visible, but greyed-out.)

First up, a stunning skirt and layerable tank top set from Sn@tch VIP Group (L$300 to join, and one of the most fun group chats ever. You won’t get shouted at for talking in group chat, and things can get hilariously naughty sometimes. It’s one of my favourite groups for banter, as well as for Ivey’s fab clothing). This is a new departure for Sn@tch: sculpted skirts that move beautifully with the avatar (be aware that certain very twisted or bent-over poses might not work, but for the average AO these skirts will look great). The tanks are on several layers (some sheer, some less sheer, and there’s also a pink one I’ve not shown here) so you can layer up and mix and match. I adore this outfit, and I’ve teamed it with the free Adena hair in Swedish Blonde, from the fatpack at Amacci (pick ‘hair’ from the teleport pad at the landing point, and the freebie is on the wall to your right), plus a group gift skin from Tuli that I’ll get onto in a minute.

Hop behind the cut for three more pay-to-join group gifts; one of which is for the boys!

Three Sunday bargains

Weekends are busy times for me, because that’s when I can log in-world and rummage out some bargains for you. Today I have three beautiful frocks to showcase, plus a new free skin and a fatpack of free hair.

First up is this super-classy new group gift from Kunglers Fashion Design, which includes the necklace. The group has a L$50 join fee (make sure you remain in the group, because if you leave then you’ll have to pay again to re-join) and offers one outfit every month to its members. Mar has teamed it with free hair from the new Exile sample pack Micah in crimson. I’m afraid the shoes are not free (they were a bit of a splurge, for Mar, but they won’t be leaving her feet anytime soon!)

Hope behind the cut for the two other outfits!
