I have some exciting news in this Free Dove Challenge post! As you may already be aware, I’m rather attached to my glasses. I’ve worn them since I was 8 , nearly 34 years now, never got along well with contacts, although I usually buy a box or two every so often for emergency reasons, like lost or broken glasses. I reached an agreement with Paloma, that I could wear this pair of FULL PERM glasses in my Free Dove Challenge posts if I offered to send a pair to anyone who asks. I can’t set a box out at the Dove, as I’m not a designer with a store, but I can, and will, send them to anyone who drops me a notecard saying they want them. Oh, and please drag your calling card to the notecard to make it easier for me to do this. The sky’s the limit with what you can do with these, color them, or pick up some textures to apply, I’ve even got a tutorial here on my blog if you’re not sure how to do that. Today I tried to color them to highlight the amazing look on my dress, using an iridescent texture that I uploaded, and then coloring over that, as it was mostly blue, I could use a pink that would match the purples in the outfit, and show pink in the lighter areas. Now that exciting announcement is over I can present my head to toe look fromThe Free Dove!
Here’s a fun fact. The hair I’m wearing today was what I wore for the longest time as my main hair, my first favorite hair. I still do wear it quite a bit despite several folders full of hair now. My personal favorite is when designers mix mesh hair with flexi-prim hair, as I’ve mentioned before, likely more than a few times. This hair from Tameless, “Beatrice”, is the start of that love affair. It comes with a naturals HUD of 30 different shades. I love to wear this hair when I’m outdoors, it just looks like the wind is blowing through my hair as I move around.
My make up is of course from that huge box of goodies from Dulce Secrets. Today I’m modeling ::DS:: Rosy Glow Blush, ::DS:: Mystical Abyss Makeup, and ::DS:: Pouty Pink Lips. I’m still discovering makeup in this box, and I just found and love this lipstick, and the mystical abyss makeup’s eyeshadow is simply perfect for this outfit! I think I want to find some more of these pouty lips too. I couldn’t be more pleased with how the makeup turned out today. My skin is my usual AG.Anna from Avi-Glam that is exclusive to The Free Dove!
This necklace is also something I wore very often when I first discovered The Free Dove. EarthStones Lora Necklace – Turquoise Silver also comes with matching earrings which didn’t show through my hair. but they are just as lovely. Alternatively, there is a Lora set in gold and sunstone which is another favorite of mine as well.
I’m also super excited that Spyralle is in this month’s Mini hunt! More Kerryth love from me, she deserves and I wish I could do more! I simply love her fractal designs, I’m also really into lavenders and blues lately, so I was super happy to unbox this set. The “Spyralle Florette Minidress Periwinkle” also comes with an omega applier for the knee-length capris. There are several sizes in the box, standard sizes xs-L, Maitreya, both Slinks, all 3 Bellezas, as well as TMP. This beauty will only be at The Dove until the end of the month, so head down and hunt it up! There are 5 hunt prizes to be found at the Dove, and 3 at Spyralle’s new main store. You’ll need to be a member of The Free Dove to snag those there, and excitingly Spyralle’s group is FREE to join until March 1st, so you can join that wonderful group in order to hunt down the 3 prizes there.
How daring was I to scale this tree in strappy high heels! These well-coordinated kicks are a gift from Shoe-ddiction, whom I featured a couple of times in January as they did the mini-hunt that month. But these “Denim Love Blackberry” aren’t a hunt item, they are right there in the shoe section to be snagged! There are a Slink high version and an unrigged version in the box.
Now, everything on my body is from The Free Dove, which is my challenge rules! However, I have to give designer credit for this tree that I fell in absolute love with. It inspires my creativity, and I plan on using often for photography. I won’t forget to get in a few cuddles with my sweetie either. However, the really good nis thatthat this designer is a Free Dove supporter with gifts in the store, and also a participant in this month’s Dazzle. He’s also a new favorite of mine, whom I’ve blogged 3 times already this month! If you haven’t’ already guessed by those hints, I’ll tell you that it’s from Stone’s Works. It also breaks my self-imposed blog guidelines of 100L or less, but I don’t care! I love it!
The “Sittin Tree v 3 2015” has 12 PG couple’s poses, but a few can be used for single shots, and I did, the first pic on the blog is the first pose in the menu. I also lined up some poses with my pose stand for some silly and fun action shots. I plan to use it for holding up some swings and hanging chairs that I have acquired. All in all, I imagine hours of fun and great pics in the future with this lovely tree. It has 6 land impact, which is ok considering it’s huge, as you can see. It costs 425 lindens, but thanks to the now past Valentine’s Hunt where I found a 200 linden gift card, I Missy Mathed it down to 225 lindens. If you want to purchase this it’s out in the yard of the store, to your right when you teleport in.
The flowers underneath are not included, but they are FREE! Lunaria has several beautiful ground covers as gifts for the FREE to join group. I scattered several of them around to look like a field of flowers, overlapping at times. Lunaria is a store to be seen if you like elegant, feminine designs with a touch of fantasy. There’s also several lucky letters and a midnight madness board, and a couple of boxes of old gifts, along with several landscaping and clothing gifts available.
Ok, I’ve gone a little overboard on my furnishing credits in this Free Dove Challenge Post, but credit where credit is due, I like to give all the info on the designers I include, as is more than fair, as furnishings help show off my clothing in a way that, to me, brings the designs to life. However, the focus here is on the clothes, as it is a fashion blog overall, and of course the wonderful Free Dove. Everything on my body can be found at The Free Dove. You’ll need to be Blessed by a Dove to pick up these items, but the group is, and will always be to join!
