Staying At Home

Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features several gifts for the Stay at Home Club, from various designers across the grid who want to encourage us through these rough times. There is no group tag needed to claim them, just visit the store (click the gift's image on the website) and you will find the gift waiting for you. Some stores use vendor systems that will require you to pay $1L that will be refunded, for the vendor's records, but overall you will be receiving some fantastic presents at no net cost. I am so grateful to be a part of the SL community, knowing that we are looking out for each other and boosting spirits like this.


My first look of the evening comes from Seniha Originals, called Cassie Dress. It has a deep V neck with just the right amount of cleavage, and daring thigh slits for extra sass. The dress comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Perky, with a HUD offering 10 different textures to choose from. There are many sweet animals on these textures, so I was ooh'ing and aahh'ing a lot while trying them all :) In cooler months, this dress can double as a tunic top if you layer some leggings or jeans beneath.


Our gift from Ewa Boutique is their BLACK DOLL Look 112, consisting of a sensual dress and heels. The dress is provided in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, while the shoes are designed for Maitreya and Slink High feet. There is a HUD included for the dress with 6 great textures, so you can change the look to suit your preferences. The heels are an ideal neutral black, which is a perfect match for the trim of the dress in all textures. 


Mooncraft will help make your weekend sizzle when you pick up their gift of Celestial Suit - SAH. This daring bodysuit is laced up both sides and the legs are cut high which leads to a thong in the rear. The pattern and its beautiful moon and stars made me smile, and so do the colors chosen. Our gift includes Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, and Legacy sizes. Please pay the vendor $1L which will be automatically refunded while your gift is delivered to you.


I am also glad that I stopped by BeanSprout, as they are currently offering three gifts of ladies' apparel in various sizes. This is their Sweet Treats dress, fitted for the Maitreya mesh body. The pattern is a luscious mix of berries and baked goods like waffles and cake, and do I see some ice cream too? I certainly enjoy halter styles, and gentle ruffles at hemlines like this pretty dress.


My final look this evening is the BeanSprout Amelia dress, a fluttery black sundress with gold stars scattered about a black background. It comes in Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. As a side note, the third clothing gift I mentioned at this store is designed for eBody and Tonic mesh bodies, none of which I own, so that will remain a surprise for you until you visit if you own those bodies and wish to claim it :) 

It was a rough day for national news, so that was a hot topic at dinner with my parents. Fortunately we all have similar opinions so it did not lead to any arguments or anything, just expressions of sorrow and frustration. There are storms rolling through my area tonight and tomorrow, so my fingers are crossed that I do not lose power and I plan to get all my blog preparation done as quickly as possible. I am going out briefly tomorrow as usual, picking up my farmers market order, so I wish the weather was going to be nicer. Safely getting fresh air is good, but rain would make it less pleasant. Speaking of pleasant, I hope you all have a very nice weekend ahead, with many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

More Gifts from Virtue

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more generous gifts from Virtue to show you, as I did last night. Their group is free to join, and they have an entire wall upstairs filled with gifts you can claim with that tag active. There are former gifts for other groups (Third Life, MAAM, etc.) that have been changed over to the Virtue group's tag and are still available, so it really is a treasure trove of presents! I even recognized a few prizes from their Free Dove hunt back in the day, as they are a participating designer there and I was a huge fan of the monthly mini hunts at Free Dove. The fashions at Virtue are created with modesty in mind, so they offer an alternative to more revealing clothing for whatever reasons we may wish for such. I crave variety and that is enough of a reason for me :) I hope you enjoy your visit as much as I did.


Let's start this evening with a pair of lovely dresses, both called Virtue Christy Dress. The one on the left is the {Sky} version, with {Olive} on the right, both with delicate flowers adorning the hem and neckline. Each gift includes standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body fits. I really like both colors for spring into summer, such soft hues. 


This elegantly simple column dress is our gift called Virtue Espi Dress Bubblegum, and I am a fan of the bare shoulders for warm weather. The gift includes sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and even a standard fitted version. The hem reaches below the knee and the high neckline adds modesty, while the sleeveless style balances things nicely.


The colors and cheerful pattern of greenery on the Virtue Spotlight 7.17 Dress certainly caught my eye! It features bell sleeves and a long flared skirt, with square neckline that would show off a necklace beautifully. It comes in standard mesh sizes plus Venus, Maitreya, and Physique mesh body versions.


I also claimed this charming Virtue Heather outfit, a layered top in Brown paired with a long skirt in Light Denim. I'm sure I have mentioned before being a fan of denim, and this shade (like most denims) looks terrific with just about anything, obviously including the caramel colored shirt with striped knit layer above it. Each piece is provided in standard mesh sizing along with eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. I can see myself wearing either piece with other goodies in my wardrobe too, as I do value versatility.


My final look goes formal with the Virtue Dora Dress, yet another generous group gift that was initially a Third Life gift in January 2019 according to the folder name, yet now available to the Virtue group for the same low price of free ;) This sleeveless gown with attached belt is included in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. I know I called it a belt, but it is almost more like a slender sash with ribbon decorating the front, a delightful touch.

I hope you are all enjoying your day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Group Gifts from Virtue

Hiya everyone! Tonight we stop by the Virtue mainstore to enjoy their many free group gifts. There is no fee required to join the group, just have the tag active and click the photos on the wall (upstairs, follow the red arrow/beacon from your map) to receive each generous dress or outfit. This designer aims for modesty in her clothing, and that is not always easy to find in SL so this information can be especially useful to anyone with that particular mindset of wanting less revealing fashions that are still attractive. Personally I lean towards modesty when I am out and about in SL because I tend to be shy, but am not offended by more provocative fashion either. We all have different inclinations for a variety of reasons, and I especially appreciate having lots of options.


My first look this evening shows off two of the bounty of group gifts currently available, as they are different versions of the same style dress. On the left is Virtue Carmen Dress {Blue}, with {Green} on the right, each of which is included in standard mesh sizes plus Venus, Maitreya, and Physique fits. They have built in belts in well coordinated colors, and short sleeved blouses with knee length skirts. I like the patterns on both of these designs, and the colors are nice for this time of year.


This charming sheath dress is the Virtue Magdalena Dress {Blossom} group gift, with what I believe are cherry blossoms accentuated by a slim pink belt. The black fabric background really makes the flowers stand out, just gorgeous! The dress comes in standard mesh sizes as well as versions for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies.


I also picked up this stylish gift called Virtue {MAAM Group Gift Aug 19}, but despite the name it is set for the Virtue group so I'm thinking it may have been a previous gift for the other group. There are a few named as such, and I appreciate the chance to pick up former gifts for other groups as well as their own :) This dress with built in cropped short sleeved jacket layer is provided in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body versions.


Next we have a cozy set, the Virtue Caelyn Sweater & Skirt {Heart} in dashing black and red. They are packed separately inside the initial bag, and the sweater includes standard mesh sizes plus Venus, Maitreya, and Physique versions. The skirt has a slightly wider range of sizes, with both standard and sizing for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies. There are alpha layers included, so you can always use those to adjust your body (they work on mesh bodies too if you have BOM activated) for a suitable fit.


For my final look of the evening, I chose two versions of the same tastefully styled dress called Virtue Agape Dress. I am wearing it in {Coral} on the left, {Pink} to the right, and each comes in standard mesh sizing as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body sizes. The gently flared sleeves and flared skirt work so well together, especially with the more formfitting bodice to balance things out. 

It was another quiet day here, which I generally do not mind. I have been busy with Animal Crossing things, and planning for the next few days of blogging as well as RL activities. I always try to get my weekend plans solidified as much in advance as possible, so it was a productive evening. I hope you're all having a pleasant day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Fabulously Free

Hiya everyone! Tonight I was inspired by reading about several new group gifts for the FabFree Group, which is the in-world presence of the FabFree in SL blog. I have been a huge fan of theirs ever since I discovered them, very early on in my time in SL so well over a decade. I have greatly benefited from they information they provide, not just because of the gifts but from learning about new-to-me designers and events or places to visit in SL. For tonight's looks, I visited their group gift listing and went with not the absolute newest but some that I had not shown you yet from longer ago so they could possibly change soon...this way you can claim them before that happens :) Some designers change out gifts more frequently than others, it is entirely up to them so there is no set time like with an event or hunt, so all I can say is that if you see something you like you should not hesitate. 

My first look is the FabFree gift from Northern Sky Creations, called NSC Arrow Tunic. This breezy dress can also be worn as a top if you decide to layer some leggings or jeans beneath, and the pattern is quite eye-catching. Our gift includes fitmesh standard (S, M, L) sizes as well as Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, Tonic Fine, and Voluptuous mesh body versions.

Summer is almost here, although of course you can find any climate you wish in SL so you can enjoy this next gift year round :) It is the Petry Model BIKINI HSDE, a versatile gift consisting of sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. There is also a HUD provided with 8 texture choices, 4 of which are solids and the other 4 patterns, so you can change your look with a quick click.

YM SHOP has their pretty Sloane Outfit as the FabFree gift, and it includes 3 different colors for added variety. The dress comes in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 classic, 5 fitmesh standard, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink) with a cute handbag and a pair of laced up sandals for Slink High (not shown). This gift includes Black/Red, Brown, and White versions.

This tempting dress is our FabFree gift from [Sexy Princess] Called Florine Dress. I love the way it swoops up from the waist, both front and back, like a bra top connected to a tiny mini skirt. It includes sizing for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies.

My final look is a flirty one as well, the Entice Dress (Silk Pattern) from LEIGH. It has a peekaboo waist and slender spaghetti straps, and a fantastic texture. The gift contains sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies, with a HUD offering both colors shown above. Pink and purple are my favorite colors so it will be tricky to decide which to wear first :) The metallic sheen is quite beautiful.

I hope you're all having a safe and lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Grateful At Home

Hiya everyone! Tonight I am delighted to show you the newest group gift from [Ari-Pari] for their free group, a nod to Memorial Day. Then we explore some more of the Stay at Home Club gifts, from generous designers who want us to remember that we are in this together. They are thoughtfully offering all sorts of free treats to lift our spirits during this trying time, and I am very grateful to each and every one of them. Be sure to check out all the sections of their website for all the possibilities, while tonight's post is focused on findings from their Apparel page.


This is our current group gift from [Ari-Pari], a charming mini dress called Liberty. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, with dainty ruffles at the hem and neckline and slender spaghetti straps. The deep red color scattered with blue and white stars are very appropriate for the Memorial Day holiday today (or 4th of July, Labor Day...etc.) but can be enjoyed whenever you wish. Not only is the group free to join, there is a versatile halter top for the Stay at Home Club which I blogged recently that you can pick up while you visit. 



Speaking of the Stay at Home Club, my next stop was to claim that gift from Velicious called Tank Top & Belted Jeans Fatpack. It includes system/BOM layers and an Omega applier in Aqua (seen on the left), Gold, Pink (right), and Silver each. You could mix and match the colors, and either way you can enjoy the sequined tank and belt of the jeans for an upbeat look.


I changed into the gold jeans from the previous gift to show you this present from ikr! called Daniella Stay At Home Crop-w 4-text. COFFEE hud. Our fluttery cropped tank top comes in sizing for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine bodies, with a HUD offering 4 coffee themed textures. To claim this gift please pay the vendor $1L and you will be immediately refunded. Good news for the guys, there is a matching t-shirt for you being offered here too with similar texture choices.


{Melt} now has two Stay at Home Club gifts available, one of which I blogged last month and the other seen here. This beautiful gown is their Hopeful Dress, a fitting name for this day and age, and it comes in a classic version for standard avatars along with eBody, Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing. There is also a HUD provided with 8 colors to choose from, all with the lovely design of flowers and butterflies on the lower skirt. The navel-baring dip of the neckline makes for an intriguing detail, and the back is mostly bare beneath the halter neck.


One more treat for this evening, we have the Georg Bellic Design gift for the Stay at Home Club called ~GBD~ Lydia Dress. This sweet strapless mini has cheery yellow ruffles and belt, to match some of the sunshiny bursts of the pattern. The gift includes a standard fitted version, as well as eBody Classic, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing. These colors feel very springlike to me, yet perfect for summer too which is almost here.

Memorial Day is an interesting holiday, as for many here it is a reason to light fireworks, have a barbecue, or head to the beach. This year, probably less so but some beaches in the general region are open and crowded. I think about my grandmother's brother who was killed in WWII so I naturally never had a chance to meet him, and how she wound up marrying a WWII veteran (my beloved grandpa who passed away in 2010) while my father is retired military reserves so I have been around soldiers all my life. I am very grateful to all who made sacrifices for this country and our safety, while mourning them and wishing healing for their families. This year it is hard for me to feel like celebrating, but to all who are I just hope they stay safe and healthy while enjoying. Nothing else interesting today, other than a small power glitch while I was typing this up that made my internet go out for a few minutes and startled me. It came back quickly enough that it is not a problem, I didn't lose anything I'd typed which is fortunate. I hope you are all having a peaceful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

More Tres Chic Treats

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have one more batch of gifts to share from the Tres Chic 5th anniversary round, which you have several days remaining to stop by and enjoy. They are celebrating with an abundance of gifts (free group tag needed) at nearly every display, so a wide variety among these treats. I had so much fun unpacking them all, and the hard part was narrowing down which ones to share with all of you. I tend to just choose randomly so I am not playing favorites, and am pleasantly surprised when I slip into each outfit to take the photos. I hope you have all been visiting these events for their anniversary rounds this month and helping them celebrate, they are all worth the teleport!


My first look is the gift from neve, which includes a versatile top and skirt with HUDs. Each comes in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizing, and the top's HUD offers 4 colors plus 2 length choices. The HUD for the skirt has the same 4 color options, with buttons to hide the waist and reveal even more of the waist. The intricate styling on the back of the shirt really caught my eye, and I appreciate how many potential ways there are to wear this outfit.


I love the simplicity of the gift from fake society, called bella dress black. It is a sleek mini with spaghetti straps, in sizes for Freya, Legacy, Maitreya, and Slink bodies. I decided it would look even prettier with some accessories, so I added the PRECIOUS earrings and necklace from EMO-tions. Their gift brings the moon and stars to your earlobes and neck, in a dark silvery metal accentuating the intricate details. 


Next I shimmied into my favorite marketplace gift, the jeans from Delizio in white which is one of several colors provided in system/BOM layers plus Maitreya and Omega appliers. They are a versatile way to share some tops, like the beautiful [Eternus] Chamomile Top Flower Dark I am wearing on the left. It comes in Legacy and Maitreya versions, and the blossoms look so pretty against the deep blue background on this tied crop top. On the right I am enjoying the gift from FashionNatic called Aria Top, which includes Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizing. The vibrant colors certainly add interest to this flirty little top, don't they?


Another playful top can be found in the present from Rosary, named Dearra. There are open and closed versions, each included to fit Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya bodies, and with a HUD offering 4 metals and 2 texture versions. As far as I can tell, the versions differ with the addition or subtraction of a shadow for the nipple, so I would suggest just trying both and seeing which you prefer :) The closed style is on the left with both huge safety pins clamped shut, while the open (seen on the right) has the lower one unpinned to dangle from just one side. Either one you wear will bring casual flair to your outfit with the distressed bandanna material and plenty of cleavage.


My final look this evening heads towards the formal side of fashion with the generous Secret Desert gift called Ara Gown. There are 4 attractive shades of neutral colors provided - Cocoa, Mika (seen on the right above), Ochre, and Sienna (left) which you will find in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizes in this gift. The daringly high slit on the left thigh draws attention to the gathered waist, and let's not forget that deep neckline for extra beauty.

This weekend felt like it went pretty quickly for me, although in the USA it is a long weekend with tomorrow's Memorial Day holiday. I could hear fireworks outside earlier, not quite the right day but the people in my area just love any excuse to make noise it seems ;) Seriously, fireworks are popular around here and I just hope they are being careful because I do not want anyone to be hurt. It was my parents 51st wedding anniversary, as wild as that sounds, and they were unable to celebrate like they usually do (dinner at a nice restaurant) but will get takeout soon to make up for it. It really is amazing that they've spent so much time together and still love each other, and like each other, so I am proud of them and impressed by their accomplishment. I hope you've all enjoyed your weekend, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Tres Chic Part Deux

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have more group gifts from Tres Chic to show you, as they are still celebrating their 5th anniversary with treats for the members of their free group. When I got home, I had dozens of boxes to unpack with really impressive quality gifts inside, so you can imagine how grateful I am to all the designers helping them commemorate this special occasion. We have over a week remaining to visit, pick up some demos, do a little shopping (retail therapy!) and of course claim these wonderful gifts.


First up, we have the SCANDALIZE. Chic. White gift, whose top and skirt each have solid and dotted versions. They are made to fit Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies, and you can mix them up as I have above or go with a more uniform look. The bare shoulders lead down to a plunging neckline just connected by the knot holding everything in place, very alluring! I am partial to the high waist and short ruffled hem combo, as it draws attention to curves and long legs.


Our gift from -:zk:- is their uniquely designed Anyka Dress. The gift includes sizes for Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya mesh bodies, with one sleeve that resembles a business suit and the other side revealing a camisole beneath. There is a HUD provided with 7 colors for the top beneath the jacket, and 4 metals for the trim of the belt. 


I found another head-turner of a gift, thanks to AVALE and their Lola - Red dress and bra. That's right, the bra is a separate piece so you can wear the deep cut dress without if you wish. Speaking of the bra, it is versatile since there is a HUD provided for it with 7 colors for the cups and 2 for the lace trim. If you're going to show it off with a revealing dress, you might as well play with the colors and make sure it reflects your personality and tastes.


I have mentioned how much I adore the versatility of HUDs, right? :) Well this gift is a perfect example of why. This is the "Seinab" Top & Skirt from MOWIE, with each piece provided in Legacy and Maitreya mesh body sizing. The included HUD offers 14 terrific colors each for the solid top and plaid skirt, so you can have fun clicking buttons until you find the look that matches your mood or personality. The skirt is playfully short, and the halter top has a trio of buttons in the back, holding things in place. 


My final look of the evening is the gift from AMISAR. called Sireah. Pine. It is comprised of two shirts (patterned on the left above, and the original on the right that is solid with white stripes down each arm) plus the top and a string (C-string, like a thong without the sides) each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya bodies. There is also a HUD included with 20 belt colors, the same 20 choices for the string, and 2 metals for the belt's hardware. If you are feeling adventurous, you can wear this shirt without the little bustier type top beneath, or layer something different under if you prefer. I would also consider leggings or jeans to take the place of the string if I wanted to wear this somewhere not adult rated.

It was a rainy and foggy day out, yet it was still nice to be out briefly and with plenty of precautions. I really do value my brief interactions with people even more now, since I get to quickly remind them how much I appreciate them and how they are providing healthy food in a safe manner. I am still enjoying my Animal Crossing game (New Horizons) and would like to add a new villager soon but not sure which one. The game is very relaxing, since there is no pressure and you can do all sorts of things at your own pace. Well, I hope you're all having a pleasant day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
