So for my first full-fledged outfit post, I had to decide if I would hunt up a new outfit today, or choose between the 100+ I’ve already saved; knowing that the longer I put off posting about them, the greater the likelihood of the items being unavailable. I decided to open the outfits tab, close my eyes and touch my screen and do whatever popped up. I was surprised with a rather perfect choice as it’s been unseasonably warm here in the Midwest. So I slipped into this touristy shirt and took myself to feel the wind in my hair in Chicago.
Chicago isn’t called the Windy City for nothing, and with the gift, Plenty, from Magika I can almost feel the stiff breezes rippling right through my hair The Magika group is 150 Lindens to join, and for this they currently have seven group gifts available; and 3 of those are hair with all 4 of Magika’s enormous color huds, one of which is the hair that I am wearing here.
My skin, eyelashes, and glasses are things I don’t change out much, so this will likely be only write up on those. The skin is made by Avi-Glam and was a FREE exclusive gift for The Free Dove. The Free Dove is a wonderfully organized store, loaded with nice freebies to deck you out from head to toe! You need to join the group to get the gifts, but the group is FREE to join! My glasses, however, don’t fit much in the really cheap category, but they are totally me and I instantly fell in love with them. I found them at Really Rockabilly! and wasn’t put out by the modest price tag of 99 Lindens. The eyelashes are just one of the items included Atia’s FREE grab bag, which can be found in the marketplace (link below.)
The earrings here are a little something else I found in a huge box of gifts from Ydena. I can’t even remember how many complete outfits were in the box, but it was more than 20. Anyhow, the earrings deserved their own little write-up, because they are a fully modifiable object. Simple big hoop mesh earrings, and in this case, I changed the texture to a texture available in the system library, chainlink. It gave it this wonderfully grungy urban steel look that just went perfectly with the vibe I was aiming for. I found them in at the Free Dove, and they are in the gift box of Ydena all past group gifts.
Alas, my make-up and the lovely checkered skirt are no longer available free. I only recently picked them up as a Lucky Chair prize from Brii Underground, but they have been even more recently switched out. There are 5 new prizes out for women, and one for men. I did do a search just in case you fell in love with the look, and it can be found in marketplace (link below) for 178 Lindens. However, included in that 178 Lindens, is not only the skirt (available in 5 standard sizes) but a shirt in 5 standard sizes, omega appliers for bra and stockings, standard makeup tattoo as shown (omega applier for mesh heads also included), as well as resizable black mesh boots. Even though you missed this Lucky Chair find, Brii Underground is not a place you should miss! Several gifts and dollarbies, not to mention the monthly theme hunt with 10 ENTIRE OUTFITS to be hunted and found at the price of 2L each. Honestly, it’s all worth it for the makeup alone. Speaking of Brii hunts…the Burlesque hunt’s last day is tomorrow, and on the first, the Halloween Costume hunt begins!
The cute little crop top I have on is a group gift from Vinyl. It’s the London Crop Top, but it comes with a texture change hud that includes graphic tees for 15 different cities throughout the world, or 15 different colors for solids. You can turn the bra strap on or off, and when on you can choose between 8 different textures. There are 3 other gifts up for members, including a cute little Halloween bag. Best yet, the Vinyl group is FREE to join!
Last, but not least, we have my shoes. I snagged the Stefy shoes at Venus as a group gift. They come with a color hud that allows you customize 5 different areas of the shoe, with 5 different shades of denim, and your choice of metal for the hardware. In the box are sizes for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, TMP, and classic avatars. Venus has a total of 9 different pairs of shoes up as gifts, and 4 lucky chairs. Venus is also free to join!
