Yes, we can have nice things

The Vivian gown is a new release from Tiffany Designs, and I got it at a deep discount thanks to the VIP group. The Tiffany Designs VIP group has a $800L join fee, which seems a bit steep until you see how much you get in return. Here's how I got a $1500L gown for $125L.

A group notice came announcing a promo: 50% off the Vivian gown (and another 50% off for wearing the group tag). That's a pretty good discount. But things got better: upstairs was a lucky chair with a $500L gift card, and it had my letter on it. I sat down fast, collected my $500L, and took it straight to the Vivian vendor. My $125L purchase included an applier gown in my color choice with a mesh panel, prim skirts, applier gloves, and all the jewelry.

Pleased with my new gown, I flew straight to Reve Obscura to get a pose worthy of it. I liked the scenery at Reve Obscura so much that I took a photo right there at the landing spot. This caused some alpha issues with Ava standing in a hole in the shrubbery, but I still like the colors and the composition of the photo.

Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair

I Left My Heart in San Francisco, and I've got the crop top to show it. The London Crop Top has a texture change Hud with a choice of major world cities so you can wear your heart on your shirt. The London Crop Top is a free group gift from Vinyl.

If you're going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in  your hair
If you're going to San Francisco
You're gonna meet some gentle people there

I've paired the crop top with the Maria White Linen Mini Skirt, a free group gift from powdermoon. Ava's hairstyle is the Puck hair from little bones. You can pick up The Puck hair in a fatpack of colors free - no group join needed.

Some things are better not to share

I'm happier when I don't have to share certain things - sinks, for instance. ChiMia's Couple's Vanity Sink is a solution to sharing my space, but not all of it. The midcentury style of the vanity inspired me to create a little powder room. 

I tried to get a photo showing Ava in her new powder room and finally admitted Ava and the powder room are another of those things that are better kept separate (only for the photo).

Ava's shiny white latex lingerie is from the Bardot gacha by AsteroidBox at The Epiphany. I dropped a few lindens playing this gacha in order to get the collar that's part of the VIP gift. I recouped them by reselling my extra RAREs on the Marketplace. This look is a bit different for Ava, I hope you like it!

I want to save all the bunnies

Blueberry released a new group gift, and you're going to see it everywhere this season. The Mimi dress has ruffles and shirring and a tied bodice and attached panties (one of my fav features). And it fits my Maitreya body like a fourth skin layer. The "fatpack" Hud has enough textures to get through the rest of the summer and well into the fall. The Blueberry group is free to join.

The JUMO fashion house is celebrating the store's anniversary by giving gifts. First of all, the JUMO group is temporarily free to join. Once in, there are several birthday gifts on the board in front of the mainstore including this sweet LillyRose skin in the Porcelain tone.

I completed Ava's outfit with a couple of classics: the Juno shoes from Amacci and the Classic Pearls from Lazuri. The Amacci group is free to join, and there is another shoe gift on the wall. The Classic Pearls from Lazuri are free with no group join needed, and there is another jewelry gift on the wall. But be forewarned: if you love jewelry, it will be hard to get out of the mainstore without buying something. Both the shoes and the pearls have color-changing Huds.

The bunnydolls are a little hard to explain; I just like them. They're a group gift from CURELESS, which currently has a $50L join fee.

Whenever I get a group gift, I feel like it's a special day. The Florentine Iris dress is the July gift from the ElvenElder Mainstore group, and there's so much I love about it. This original mesh creation has a halter style top, a shirred skirt, and a gorgeous belt that clasps in back. All the details are well designed and beautifully executed, from the shaping of the bodice to the included pants underneath with an on/off Hud. The Elven Creations group is $100L to join and in addition to the monthly group gifts you get a discount on the exclusive meshes in the mainstore.

The Deco tattoo is in a lucky board at THIS IS WRONG. There are two other boards with different tattoos, but happily this is the one I won.

Art means being who you are meant to be & then expressing it

I favor white because it's the color of a blank canvas, ready for me to paint in the rainbow of colors I feel inside. I may have found the slogan t-shirt dress that's perfect for me! Ava's dress is in one of the free group gift vendors at Amazing Creations. The slogan is the title of my post.

Ava's amazing boots are the July group gift from Heels, and the way they hug Ava's ankles is almost x-rated. Yum!

The stool gift from Madras is shown in two textures (there are more via Hud). The colorful books and paint pots are Hideki's gift at The Chapter Four. The craft clutter on the free stool and the hanging planter are group gifts from tarte. The potted vine is a group gift from hive. The rest are gachas, listed below.

Whole Lotta Love - Tres Chic

Seniha has given us an amazing top that's ruffled and wrapped and has a texture changing Hud. The lovely Dita Ruffle Top is a group gift at Tres Chic - even more amazing! I paired it with a denim skirt that's a group gift from Pink Pearl Designs. The Whole Lotta Love skirt has pretty lace trim on the pockets and comes with a texture changing Hud. Both groups are free to join.

Ava's pose is called "Love Alone," and it's from Luanes World at Tres Chic. The roses are included.

Express the magic inside

The Sylryth Skin Neutral Tone is the July group gift from Lumae. The gift includes system layers, shapes, a body Hud, head appliers, elf ears in three sizes, and a crown. There are head applier Huds for Catwa, Genus Project, GA:EG, LAQ, and LeLutka with two brow options, four color options for each, and ear appliers for Soul, Bentbox, and LOGO. The body applier for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Tonic, and Omega has four cleavage options, four nipple options, and a V-Tech boi chest option. In short, this group gift is loaded with features and is a marvelous introduction to the Lumae skins! There are more group gifts on the wall, and the Eclipse Headchain Ava's wearing is in one of them.

The Inaara Eyelashes Hud is the July group gift from LePunk (for Catwa), and among the options are two for white lashes. Which as you might guess made me extremely happy.

The Lia Dress is the July group gift by #LANA. The #LANA group is temporarily free to join (the usual join fee is $100L). The Lia Dress comes in a full fatpack of colors using the included Hud, fortunately including my fav, white. I think the frayed hem gives this dress a perfectly elfin look.

I've painted Ava's fingers and toes with the Summer Love Nail Applier, a gift from CAZIMI at the Cosmetic Fair. Ava's Raphael Hair is a group gift from Sintiklia, not the newest gift, but it's still on the wall with the other group gifts. This is bento fitted hair in a fatpack of colors with styling options, add-on bangs in three styles, and a color tint add-on. The Sintiklia group is $250L to join.

Monthly Midnight Madness, SL style

This type of Monthly Midnight Madness has nothing to do with the phase of the moon or turning into a werewolf or balancing your books. This type is a monthly shopping/freebie event in Second Life. You can find out more here. I joined in the madness this month, and Ava is wearing some of the gifts.

These are nice quality gifts that I'm happy to wear and use. With the addition of a few accessories from inventory, Ava's ready to stroll the boardwalk on her way to the beach.

The chic Mariluz maxi dress from Faida has an ethnic pattern on the bodice and a bare back with criss-cross ties. I didn't use my Maitreya body's alpha Hud for the bodice, but I alphaed out the pelvis and legs.

The Beach bag from ~ also Known as ~ has a nice hold animation that keeps it the appropriate distance from my body. The shoulder straps fit to a T, and I didn't need to edit or resize anything.

I'll save the Toni necklace for another post, as now I have the matching earrings.

I featured group gifts from ::K:: and HEC here and here, and now here are two more group gifts from the same creators. I love the look of a classic straw panama hat for the beach. The colors of various parts of HEC's Shades/Sunglasses are infinitely variable using the included Universal Hud.

A gift of a rose

Catwa Clip set out a gift of a virtual rose for members of the Catwa group. Catwa's Bento Rose comes wrapped in a cello bag that can be hidden with a touch. I'm captivated by the rose's smell and hold animations - they're so sweet, I could almost smell it.

The Roses tank dress is a gift from Glitter to members of the Fab Free in SL group. It's available free in different colors for other inworld groups. The Roses dress is materials enabled, and the dress really pops when you enable Advanced Lighting in your viewer. With Advanced Lighting, the material that looks flat under ordinary lighting turns shiny and textured, like a puffy silk matelassé.

Ava's Sky Heels are also materials enabled, providing extra shine under Advanced Lighting. They have an amusing "Strip Me" script, enabling them to be hidden by touch. A Hud allows you to control permissions for this activity. The Sky Heels are a group gift from Vanilla Bae.

Over her shoulder Ava is wearing the Justin Accent Jean Jacket, a group gift from the little brand known as ::K::. The jacket is fitted mesh so that it sits nicely on the shoulder, and like other ::K:: group gifts, it's a unisex style.

Getting wet with group gifts

The wet look dress is a free gift to members of the Tiar Store group, which is $10L to join. Tiar has another group gift on the wall and camping chairs for store credits. The dress is very transparent and features a subtle Tiar logo front and center.

Ava's bandanaed dreds are a group gift for members of the no.match update group, which has a $50L join fee. no.match has a room full of past group gifts to pick up once you join, so you can get quite a lot for your $50L. Ava's no.diamond earrings are among the past group gifts.

Ava's cool shades are a group gift from HEC (hot elegant clothing). The shades/sunglasses are materials enabled and fully modifiable with the included HUD. I've used the "flat" lens and there is another "baked" lens with baked in shading. The HEC group is $25L to join.

Ava's luscious lips are this month's group gift from the Lisa Walker Makeup Studio VIP group. You may need to zoom in to see the realistic lip creases. The L.W July gift comes in five colors all in the medium tone range. The L.W VIP group is $100L to join.

Ava's lovely bento rings are a free gift from Meva at the Cosmopolitan 6th Anniversary event, which closes shortly. The Heidi rings are full featured bento rings with a Hud to hide/show each ring separately.

blah. Just for Lolz.

A girl's just gotta have fun, lolz.

The group gift from MOoH! is called "April" but it's the group gift now, so go get it! The April outfit includes a tank and bikini top, track pants, and optional add on panties that show over the top of the track pants if you choose to add them on. The color of each piece is separately Hud changeable so you can mix and match colors.

The Fashion Lady sneakers from Fashion Addiction have a Hud to separately vary the upper, tongue, laces, and midsole of the sneakers to a universe of color combinations. Actually, there are two Huds: a "FAST" Hud and a "Low Lag" Hud. I only tried the "FAST" Hud (think what you will) and didn't detect any lag using it.

The tattoo from MooLoo is a fun full body tattoo, most of which is hidden with this outfit. It's a group gift, go check it out!

The free Tunnel Backdrop from CK Elite Studios provides the fun lighting in this shot.

Dress of the Day

I've seen this dress romper on Flickr a LOT today. Isn't it yummy? I love it so much that I went to Designer Showcase to check it out, thinking "maybe I'll just look"... you know how that goes.

I got a few very pleasant surprises. First, the Pamela Babydoll from La Perla, which looked to me like a blushingly short dress, is in fact a romper. Second, it's an event exclusive, and third, it comes with a Hud so that you get a fatpack of colors. I played with the Hud and there are some nice colors in there in addition to Ava's basic white. Fourth, it's a quite affordable price of $130L.

In case of any modesty issues with the lace, Ava is wearing the Universal Thong, a group gift from Kaithleen's.

Since I splurged on the dress romper, I've completed Ava's look entirely with freebies ~

At home, just for now

The June VIP gift from TRUTH Hair arrived attached to a group notice. The Gwen hair is the perfect updo for the season. I kept the hair simple, but I could have adorned it with daisies or a braid using the included styling Hud.

Ava's dress is a group gift from Hilly Haalan at the mainstore. The textures of the Katie dress and belt vary by Hud to a number of prints and solid textures in addition to the basic white Ava is wearing. I love the draping of the skirt and the gathered seam of the front bodice.

I must have visited Cosmopolitan before all the merchants were set up, because when I went again I found more free gifts. The gifts are for members of the Cosmopolitan group, which is free to join by clicking the board at the entrance to the shopping event.

If you've been wanting fingers full of bento rings, Meva's gift at Cosmopolitan could be the answer to your freebie dreams. The beautifully detailed Heidi rings have a Hud enabling you to show or hide each ring separately.

Ava's fashionable necklace is the Cosmo gift from adorsy, and her coordinating bracelets are the gift from RealEvil Industries. Her shoes are the Cosmo gift from -ZK- and while they're flip flops, they're shaped for high bento feet.

On the table I put down Cosmo gifts from Tuesdays, two versions of the Tessle Ball, with lights and without. Behind Ava is a Cosmo gift from Raindale, the Water's edge lantern.

The way you make me feel

As soon as I saw this month's group gift from Heth Haute Couture, I felt like dancing. The happy tangerine color, the pleated form-fitting top, and the flirty layers of lush ruffles sent me right to my happy place. It made me think of butterflies and parasols and magical, mystical places. Luckily I already had butterflies from a past gift, and I found a parasol on the Marketplace for $1L.

I found the silver lining

You know how they say every cloud has one. Considering they're dark, gloomy, rainy things, these clouds seem pretty popular - I had to wait to take a selfie with them. Maybe the silver lining is I got to work on my patience.

Ava's outfit comes courtesy of the Cosmo 6th Anniversary shopping event, where most of the merchants have put out gifts to celebrate. The Felicity Tunic Dress is the event gift from Hilly Haalan. I stuck with basic white for everything, but with the enclosed texture Hud you can vary the tiers, frills, and even the neck strap in a huge number of color and texture combinations.

The Cage necklace and earrings are an event gift from ChicChica. They have large chunks of amber in a golden cage suspended from a chain. The Nenharma bracelets and rings are an event gift from KUNGLERS. They come in three different metals, and Ava is wearing the Bronze. The Mohana Leg Red tattoo is an event gift from CAROL G. The henna colored tattoo comes in four color saturations controlled by a Hud.

If you zoom in you can see Ava's face sparking a little and it's not only from the rain. I've attached the Magic Fireflies Face, an event gift from Persefona.

Enjoying the summer breeze, thanks to SL15B

This is how I do the beach: wearing a floppy hat, slathered in sunscreen, and relaxing in the shade. 

ViSion's gift for SLB15 is a $200L gift card that I used in the mainstore to buy this gorgeous one-piece bathing suit. After applying the gift card, the bathing suit only cost $50L. I purchased a single color that has two texture variations, and using the enclosed Hud I can change the ruffle and ties to any number of texture and color combinations. I didn't stray far from basic white, and I love the subtle sparkle of my ruffle and ties.

Ava's hat is a gift from eXxEsS at SL15B. The Summer Hat comes in rigged and unrigged versions as well as the Breeze version that Ava is wearing that responds to SL winds. The texture of the hat and ribbon are Hud changeable giving lots of options.

Ava's swimsuit coverup is a group gift from [HB] Design, a sheer hip scarf that ties on one side. Her wooden soled wedges are a group gift from Fashion Addiction that comes in one color, which happens to be a personal favorite.

Ava's sweet pastel makeup is free at SL15B from Zibska, and her nailpolish is a hunt gift from LUNA Body Art in the A Midsummer Night's Dream hunt. The makeup and nailpolish colors are Hud changeable.

The SL15B shopping and gift event is over July 2, so if you haven't visited yet, best be quick! Here are links to the four shopping sims: Gilded ~ Golden ~ Aurelian ~ Halcyon.
