Finally, loungewear again! Now, I know, that I have said many, many times that I don’t have a style. However, if I’m not roleplaying in some fashion, I’m running around ultra casual, it’s what I do, it’s the real me, I’m a slob. I just even realized that I’m wearing something similar as I write this, only the purples and pinks are more jewel-toned! Everything I’ve got on is mostly FREE for another day or two at least, the group gifts can remain longer, and my Free Dove stuff isn’t going anywhere soon.
Shop Till You Drop
Truth had a booth at Shop Till You Drop, and this Astra Valentine’s gift was FREE to all there. It was a super generous gift with ALL of Truth’s color HUDs, and a style HUD. Since the event ended on the 26th, I decided to show off this hair as a thank you, and in conjunction with mentioning that the 50% items are still in the marketplace if you missed the event (search VDAY). This hair is also for sale on the MP, but not 50% off, the full fatpack will cost you 1250 lindens, 400 lindens for the variety pack, or 250L for a single color hud. I know I had alot of trouble getting in until towards the end of the event, and others may have just given up. I finally snagged the Farryn hair that I’ve been drooling over for a couple of months now for just 150 lindens for the single color pack. I do have plans for that hair and this blog in the works, but the magic eightball said NO when I asked if I’d get that post out by the end of the month. Spoiler alert, that loosey-goosey gorgeous french braid looks amazing under a white Stetson. Stay tuned if you’re craving a western look!
*Noon SLT update, Group Notice sent out that Astra is available at the Truth Front Desk for FREE!
I had so many goodies to show off from this round of the Gacha Gardens that didn’t even get around to showing off my Justice Liza Dress gacha RARE win (and only on the 2nd pull!) I did blog a few things here, and here, but, seeing as Gimme Gacha events rank among my favorites, I’ll give another little shout out and hope it drags another body into the event. I’m wearing A*S’s “Candy Heart collar love” which was the gift set out at the A*S gacha stall at the Gacha Garden Event. You’ll need to be a member of the Gimme Gacha group to snag any of the gifts, but the group is FREE to join (and imo a very fun group to remain in for chat and gacha trading!) It ends on the 28th, so if you haven’t gotten down there yet, shake your tail feather!
Sealed With a Kiss
If you’re like me and doing all you can to catch up on all you missed in terms of hunts and events this month, you should put The Sealed With a Kiss Hunt on your list! I found these pink floral chucks at Poeme for just 1 linden! They are unrigged and modifiable, so they’ll work with any feet! If you love em, head down and snag them by the end of the 28th!
I ❤ Group gifts!
Justice is one of my absolute favorite stores to get my everyday looks. Absolutely everything I’ve demoed or purchased from there is rigged amazingly well, little if any glitches, even with my slider so far to the right on my boobs, and I definitely have my body fat slider some to the right as well! I barely have to use my alpha hud at all. I often joke in group chat about how much I love how her stuff does “justice” to my hiney in such a way that even I can’t stop staring at it. (See what I did there? And see me wearing the Bailee Jeans that started this love affair here.)
Then there’s the fact that the owner, Valentine, is one of the genuinely nicest people that I’ve had the privilege to meet in Second Life. Currently, at Justice, there are 3 group gifts available for women, including these lavender leggings, and one gift for men. Group privileges also give a percentage of credit when you make a purchase. To my great delight, she often participates in Fly Buy Fridays! I lurrrrveeeee Fly Buy Fridays, getting that little sales HUD is the highlight of my SL shopping week! There’s also gachas in the store for us gacha lovers, and she participates in several events as well. Oh, and do you know what the sugar sprinkles on top of all this delightfulness is? The Justice group is FREE to join!
Anyway, if you read that little photo caption, I’m hanging here to show off these glasses, which I have blogged before, but wanted to mention again, because it’s been 6 months and they are still available! Blankline is actually a men’s store, but when it comes to plastic black frames, I’m a fan and don’t discriminate. Take the teleport, and yes it will say men’s something or other, but you’re in the right place, you can join the group there at the desk and there’s a picture frame behind it that has these hip nerdy glasses as a group gift. The Blankline group is FREE to join! Take your men along, because there are some pretty fantastic men’s clothes here.
These pink reverse french nails are group gift #183 “Coffee House Pinup” From Hello Dave. It’s last week’s group gift, this week has #184 and #185 given, so if you’ve not joined Hello Dave yet, for 100L, you can still get this in the Past Group Gift’s box, which has all the group gifts from 149- current. Hello Dave gives a new nail palette each week as group gifts!
The Group of Groups!
So, I’ve already told the store about finding The Free Dove via google, which started my fascination with SL fashion, but it was when I found what is my favorite blog SL blog ever that I expanded my knowledge to things like, furnishings, decor, events, hunts, poses. I still read it daily, and often link back to it, it’s also here on WordPress. If you didn’t guess by all those hints it’s Fabulously Free in SL! However on top of sharing all the finds they go out and hunt for, there’s also a TON of designers who support their group and offer FREE gifts to its members. These totally FUN LED lighted jelly bracelets are one such gift. Zendra has generously made these exclusive for the FabFree group, and it’s easy to see why as it’s rainbow colors just like the FabFree group logo! If you’re not already a member of the FabFree group, it’s FREE to join! Just head down to Zendra and use the FabFree group tag to snag these fun bracelets!

My shirt, sigh, there are two points I need to get across here. One is, that I need to blog more often. Two, since I didn’t blog them in time, you should take it upon yourself to check the weekly riot offerings at Sn@tch, and the best way to get in on the riots is by joining the Sn@tch VIP group which is 200L. I rioted for these a couple of weeks ago and got them at rock bottom, 50 lindens. The Lucy tanks are a fantastic basic to have, there’s a HUD of 30 colors and a ton of sizes, but I’m not going to go into all that because I’m not sure if they are still available! I checked the Marketplace, and they aren’t listed there, but the store is pretty huge so they might be there at normal price, I didn’t run around and look, I’m too LAZY for that!
The couch, game controllers, and every pose (6 total) above not captioned with a different designer are a set from BellePoses. You can snag the Smart Girl poses and props for 99 lindens on the marketplace, or in the main store!
Everything else has been blogged before, including the skin, lipstick, and earrings from The Free Dove. Check the style card for all the links and credits! My 3 parting poses are just me being goofy, and are not from the included poses in the Smart Girls set, but the props are, naturally.
