As promised I bring you a hunt preview, well just one item, but reason enough to get down to The Free Dove and poke around looking for hidden treasure. This month’s hunt participators are Chop Zuey, Loorde’s of London, and EccentriciXi. I’ve chosen a dress from one of them to show off, but all three did a fantastic job with their hunt gifts this month. I’ve paired the dress with some stuff that’s not hunt related, including, *le gasp* a different skin than I normally wear! Of course, my glasses aren’t actually in The Free Dove, but a message or notecard to me will land you free pair sent directly to you. So without further ado, I present you with my Free Dove Challenge look #8.
There’s just something about lace overlay on satin that just catches my fancy. When I was sitting around surrounded by the bags and boxes of my hunt loot, overwhelmed with my choice, my mind kept sneaking back to this little dress from EccentriciXi. The store is fairly new to me, so I had to go do my usual on the ground research for reporting back to you. The main store is organized like two towers, each area of the tower is organized and the name is at the bottom, to find the deals, follow the 60L Secret sale arrows towards the back, and then there’s an area of New Releases, Promos, & Deals. On the second landing of that area, there are 3 boxes of free items for new avatars 30 days or less, at the top are the sales items, including a Blacklace TGIF. There is also a discount store at The Free Dove Plaza.
I ventured into just one of the skins folders in that huge box of goodies from Dulce Secrets that’s at the Free Dove and is just loaded with everything. I like the “vanilla” base color, so I just filtered for that shade. I used the Slink Applier to put the vanilla skin on my Slink body, then had several options to choose to show with my standard head. That left me with a ton of options still! Each skin design had a few makeup colors even. I eventually settled on “::DS:: Kenzi.Vanilla.Green Field (V)” But there are several options for this skin in not only makeup shades, but also base skin tones. I’ve left it bare with no other makeup options to show it off. Omega appliers are also included. I think I will have to make time soon to make a tag just for items from this huge box of goodies so you can see just the small slice of the goodies inside that I’ve featured! But for now, you will have to just rely on my general Dulce Secrets tag, to show you the variety of things from this store that have been featured, including group gifts, sales, dollarbies, advents, and stuff I’ve bought just because of love.
The Leslie Hair is Firelight’s latest gift to The Free Dove! It’s only been there a few weeks now. It comes with the mini-essentials hud of all the basic shades, like my black, as well as firelights color tinter wheel. There’s rigged and unrigged in the box, along with busty versions (THANK YOU!) Firelight has been blogged quite a bit by me, and well deserved too, so check the tag to get all the details on this creative and generous designer.
These strappy shoes were the perfect purple to match up with the mini hunt dress. The EC Ribbon of Hope Purple shoes is a standing gift set out at The Free Dove from Emerald Couture. There’s a slink high and an unrigged pair in the box. I googled the purple awareness ribbon and found this “Purple typically represents pancreatic cancer. It is also a symbol for Alzheimer’s disease, lupus, animal abuse, Crohn’s disease, cystic fibrosis, fibromyalgia, sarcoidosis awareness, thyroid cancer, ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), and religious tolerance.” One thing that I discovered while blogging Emerald Couture stuff, is that the designer is the owner and designer of Shoed-diction as well! I discovered and blogged about the features of the Emerald Couture main store back in the Fall, in this post here.
Since the look really didn’t need a bunch of accessories this is all folks! From the top of my head to my peeping out toes everything can be found at the Free Dove, but the dress will vanish by the start of April, so if it caught your eye, head on down to the Free Dove, turn on that group tag, and hunt up the lollipops scattered around the store! To snag some shoes, jewelry, and clothes from Loordes of London look for the easter eggs, and some jewelry and accessories from Chop Zuey you can find the white boxes! Remember each store that participates in the mini hunt at The Free Dove also has a few gifts to seek and find at their own main stores, so head on down and scoop em all up!
