More Gifts from Free Dove

Hiya everyone! Tonight felt like another visit to The Free Dove, since there are just so many fantastic gifts there to share. All you need is their free group tag active (Blessed by a Dove) to claim top quality fashion and accessories from many generous designers, all gathered under one roof. Men and women will find clothing, hair, skins, shapes, shoes, just everything an avatar of any age can use to update our wardrobes. It is well organized, with some designers having their own display if they have multiple gifts, and other kiosks are labeled with signs hanging above such as Womens Casual or Mens. All of tonight's looks can be found on one of the Womens Casual displays, but really I say just have fun and browse the whole building :)


My first look is the group gift from I n' K Original, and it is called Nova Knit Dress. This snug fitting sweater can act as a long top or a short dress (I wore it with leggings yesterday) and comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. There is also a HUD provided with 5 colors to choose from, two of which you can see above. 


Next I picked up this sexy Sookie dress from SALTY, which comes in gold and silver versions like you see above, plus a black version, all with that sheer midsection and lace overlay that resembles skulls. Each color is included in Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing. 


If you are in the mood for an adorable short set, be sure to claim this gift from Damoour called [DR] Outfit Short, Top HUD 20 COLORS. The HUD actually has 10 options for each, top and shorts, so you can mix and match to your heart's content. The top two rows are for the shorts, the bottom two for the tank top. Each piece is provided in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. I decided on the rear view because I wanted you to see the fun zipper on the back of the shorts, and you can see just how short and dare I say it, cheeky, those shorts are.


Changed Seasons has a beautiful halter dress as their Free Dove gift for us, named Janie. It comes in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, in that great halter style with black ruffled trim. I must admit that is an impressive amount of side-boob without revealing anything more ;) The vibrant colors of the pattern really caught my eye as well.


For my final look of the evening, I am wearing the lovely Cremosas Store gift called 159 Dress Color 5. It is a charming green with stars scattered about, on a tank dress that is tied in a knot on the left thigh for added pizzazz. This gift consists of sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies.

I had a fairly quiet day, and a decent evening so my weekend has ended nicely :) I am looking forward to whatever this new week ahead holds, and hope that it brings you all plenty of reasons to smile. Sending many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Free Dove Delights

Hiya everyone! Tonight's post features gifts from a few different designers found at The Free Dove, where all you need is their free group tag to claim a bounty of high quality gifts. The Free Dove has been a mainstay in SL for new and longtime residents alike since 2005, to find generous gifts to help boost our wardrobes and introduce us to some of the talented folks who create fashion and accessories for us. Landmarks are provided in each gift so we can thank them by patronizing their stores, and I have wound up doing so on many occasions. Xan visited the store with me, and he picked up a few gifts for himself as well, so be sure to pass the word to any male avatar wearers that they can find some treats here too. There is a Mens display, plus several individual designers' displays have male and female gifts.


Moonstar has their own display with several gifts waiting for you, including this flirty Mesh Dionne Latex Dresses, Necklaces and Shoes. Our dress with peekaboo openings and daringly short skirt comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizes, plus a HUD with 4 color choices. There are matching necklaces (blue, green, purple, and red) with resize scripts built in, and shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink High, and Tonic mesh feet. The shoes are in a neutral black that matches the background of all the textures for the dress, so this full outfit has us dressed in style from head to toe. There is also an Omega applier for stockings, not shown as I am not wearing a compatible body (Slink Hourglass Redux, BOM only) but I assure you they are a nice touch.


There is nothing quite like relaxing with your special someone in something flirtatious, and with that in mind I would like to recommend another of Moonstar's gifts at Free Dove. This is their Mesh Mini-Hearts Lingerie x 6, a single piece outfit with nightie and panties that is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. There is also a handy HUD that lets you pick from 6 pretty colors, like the red on the left or the gold on the right, so what is your sweetie's favorite color on you? :) 


Next I would like you to meet Valerie, which is this lovely Soft Pink Dress by Moonstar that you can also find at their Free Dove display. It comes in Altamura Sofia, eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing. I was drawn to the abstract pattern and flirty halter style, not to mention that bright pop of color that really catches the eye.


I also explored one of the Womens Casual displays at The Free Dove, and excitedly claimed this gift from {Chaotic} called Cherry Dress. It consists of the dress in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, with an Omega applier for panties. Since I am wearing the Redux Hourglass body from Slink that is not compatible with appliers (BOM only), I had to go commando for this image, LOL! I would not do that out and about, but for a quick photoshoot it was fine :) That skirt is fluttery enough that panties are a great idea, and I love the bold golden belt beneath the crimson top. 


My final look of the evening is an electrifying dress from [>Ma'De<] called Alexa Choco, which can also be found on a Womens Casual display at Free Dove. This strapless metallic leather dress comes in classic sizes (S, M, L) with mesh body versions for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. The sheen makes me think the dress has materials enabled, and the color is as flattering as the style.

It was a really enjoyable day here, mostly spent at a farmers market then watching multiple hockey games. I usually only watch one team's, but found out on twitter that one of the evening games had something interesting happen (one team's goalies were both injured so they had to use an emergency backup, who is 42 and usually drives a zamboni, so it was surprising that he did well) and then another game went into overtime. Then they showed some of the Los Angeles game because Snoop Dogg was commentating, LOL, and he is so funny! He is enthusiastic about the game, so it was fun to listen to his thoughts on things. I do hope you are all having a terrific weekend as you all deserve, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Queenz of the Night

Hiya everyone! Tonight I visited the QUEENZ store and picked up several of their wonderful group gifts, for their in-store group which is free to join. Their fashions are geared towards the more curvy mesh bodies like Slink Hourglass and Katena, so these will be a fun way to add some sensuality to your upcoming weekend. I will (as usual) let you know which sizes each look comes in, and I noticed that Maitreya versions are included in all of the ones I am showing tonight so there is a wide range. I tried to think of songs with Queen in the title for my post's title, and Whitney Houston's Queen of the Night wound up inspiring me :) I admit that is largely due to the night/midnight aspect of my blog itself, but also because we can all be queens of the night or whenever we darn well please. In an interesting twist, the sim the store is located on is called Nocturnal Couture, another night reference.


My first look is their .Q. Amore Fatpack, an asymmetrical delight with a single long sleeve and a hemline that goes from upper hip diagonally down to the other knee. It comes in sizes for BBL, eBody, Freya, Legacy, Maitreya, Jessica9S, and Katena-R, with an 8 color HUD so you can adjust that to suit your mood. 


I chose particularly vibrant colors to show off their group gift called .Q. Supreme Fatpack. As you can guess, it includes a color HUD with 10 choices, and has a really flirty style with all those straps holding the front and back panel in place. The gift contains sizes for BBL, eBody, Freya, Hourglass, Jessica, Katena-R, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies.


.Q. Evasive is the name of this sexy halter mini with daring cleavage cutout, and it comes in sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Katena-reg bodies. There is also a HUD of course, so you have 10 choices for the color.


Not all of our gifts are dresses, for example we have this charming .Q. Deviant Fatpack of bodysuits. It includes sizes for BBL, eBody, Freya, Jessica9S, Katena-R, Legacy, and Maitreya bodies, plus a 10 color HUD so you can choose your favorite hue. The style is a fun one, with a single shoulder strap and a flirty opening at the waist. Like the dresses, it really flatters our curves!


My final look has a thing or two to say to us ;) It is called .Q. March Gift 2019, and includes the top and skirt each in BBL, eBody, Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Katena, and Maitreya sizing. There is also a HUD, with 3 choices each for top, skirt, and buttons. The red top says "Flawless", the white "Unbothered", and the black (not shown) reads "Bitch Please". The middle letter or letters seemed to enjoy hiding in my cleavage, which means someone would have to look extra closely to read them. That could certainly become interesting :)

It has been a busy couple of days, with another on the horizon, but at least Saturday will be about spending time with great people and picking up tasty, healthy treats. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Mesh Body Friends Gifts

Hiya everyone! Tonight we have several group gifts from the Mesh Body Friends group, which has many participating designers who want to help you dress your mesh body in style. The group is free to join, and in addition to access to gifts will inform you of sales and special offers so fashion does not have to cost a fortune. I am also excited to show you a pair of exclusive offers from Entice, currently at different events, that were created to be worn together but make fantastic separates too.


This gift comes from KingbalStores and is one of several groups' gifts throughout their store, so just follow the red arrow from your map or look around for the Mesh Body Friends sign :) It is called 250 KS Outfit Emma Pants&Top Leather Oliva, and it makes it so easy to get dressed when you have a fully coordinated look like this. The top comes in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions, while the pants include those sizes plus 5 classic sizes. The heels are provided in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High sizing.


My next visit was to LRS, where they have a room for group gifts that include their own group plus several others such as Mesh Body Friends. That gift is this flirty Soraya Dress, a tight mini in sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and even a standard fitmesh version for classic avatars. There is also a HUD provided with 10 texture choices, two of which have an accent color with black (like on the left) and the rest various solid colors with that same pretty sheen. 


SnB Fashion has a generous gift for us too, a dress called Cinthia. She is provided in sizes for eBody, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and a standard fitted version, with a HUD that lets you choose from 4 colors. It is on their group gift wall located upstairs, so while you visit it would be helpful to check what other groups you are a member of that they might be offering gifts for :) 


I also claimed our Mesh Body Friends group gift from Puro Stillo, the playful Britney Lingerie - Pack 3 Colors. There are sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies, and the HUD offers 3 choices for the sheer lace sections on the midriff and the frills at each hip. The changes are subtle but really pretty, as is the floral pattern on the rest of the bodysuit. 


Are you ready to be Enticed? This charming top is their Only Exception Top, which you will find at The Trunk Show for $150L each as individual colors or as a fatpack of 10 stripes and 10 hearts via HUD for $450L. The Trunk Show is open until the 18th of March. As for the matching Only Exception Skirt, it can currently be found at Cosmopolitan until the 22nd of the month which is very soon, but don't worry...it will be back at the mainstore in their newest releases section when Cosmopolitan closes for the round. It has similar pricing ($150L individual, $450L fatpack) and the HUD of the fatpack changes the inner and outer layers of the skirt separately. The inner layer has tiny stripes and includes the waistband, while the outer layer is slightly sheer and floaty. Each piece has been designed for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies. The links for each event are in the credits accordingly, and their mainstore is linked in my right hand column as usual :) 

Today was my last peaceful day of the week, as tomorrow I have an appointment and several other plans that crept up on me. Earlier I found out that I have to leave about 2 hours earlier than expected and probably be out for several hours longer, so I'm afraid I will not have time to prepare a blog post for tomorrow night. I will be back with one on Friday though, so stay tuned. I hope you're all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

More of Cupid's Arrows

Hiya everyone! Tonight I would like to show you some more Stupid Cupid Hunt 8 prizes, since there were so many participating stores that I had a hard time narrowing down what I wanted to share. When you find the golden arrows with red heart tips that Cupid dropped in each store, just pay $1L and you will be rewarded with a gift worth far more :) There are hints, landmarks, and some preview photos on the website so you can locate those arrows easier and know what you will be claiming. The hunt lasts until the end of the month, so you have a decent amount of time to find all the prizes you wish.


Our first stop is Hopes Creations, where the arrow holds their [HC] Jaxx TSCH8 Cropped Tee. It comes in sizes for Alice, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Physique, Physique Petite, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. There is also a HUD included with 3 texture choices, the two shown above and a white background with black and red XOXO on the front.


The Bold Llama T-Shirt Co. has this terrific LOVE IS LOVE Tee waiting for you in their arrow, and I agree wholeheartedly with its message so I was eager to claim it. The comfy tank top is provided in standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. This gift is ideal for year round wear, but I think it will especially come in handy for June, Pride month :)


This seductive outfit is our prize from MELANGE!NC. called =Corse' Love Tease=FitMESH Ensemble. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes plus a standard fitted version for classic avatars, with Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions for those mesh bodies. There is an Omega applier for panties that are mostly hiding beneath the sheer skirt, and even the matching shoes are provided for Slink High feet. 


The prize at Dragonmoon Designs is similarly sexy, in the same colors and lots of lace. Their [DD] Love [TSCH8] includes red and black versions of this sheer flirty dress with heart cutout in the front and built in panties. Each color is provided in Altamura, Eve Pulpy, Eve Slim, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh body versions.


My final look of the evening is an iridescent delight from Sweet Intoxication, their Vivian Dress - Pink. The texture is crinkled and looks like it is reflecting golden light, and the crossed straps in the back are mimicked by the crosses in the front that reveal extra cleavage. The arrow holds sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya mesh bodies.

Today was a fairly average day here, and tomorrow should be too. The weather is much warmer than typical for this time of year, so at least I am not uncomfortably cold like many evenings. I hope you're all having a lovely day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Stupid Cupid Strikes Again

Hiya everyone! Tonight we have more prizes to see from the Stupid Cupid Hunt 8, found inside arrows in participating stores. Cupid dropped them, which explains why he is stupid I guess ;) So we have to find them and pay just $1L each to claim these wonderful gifts. The hints and landmarks are on the hunt's website, and preview photos of most of the prizes, so it helps to have it open while you are exploring the hunt path.


Prism Designs has this terrific prize called Lorie Dress & Sweater by Jezzixa Cazalet in their hidden arrow. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, with the sweater and dress linked together and worn as one. The floral trimmed hearts on the dress are such a pretty pattern, and look great with the solid lavender cropped sweater tied above it.


Changed Seasons has an arrow hidden for us too, holding their Zara top and skirt. They are each provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing, with a delicate pattern of hearts, swooshes, and flowers. The silvery steel color is a fun choice, and certainly not limited to Valentines Day.


I also found the arrow at The Broken Glass Boutique, which gave me their "All That Sweetness" dress in standard mesh sizes, and a pair of silver heart earrings that are hiding in my hair. I zoomed way in on the white design on the top of the dress and could not make out what it is, so I'll go with an abstract image :) The dress has a loose swingy style that can work with many different mesh bodies if you use their HUD to alpha out any needed areas (or wear the alpha layer provided if you use BOM). 


If you wear a Maitreya mesh body, be sure to pick up the prize from Applique` Chic which is their AC: RockaLove Dress in 4 versions. They are pink, pink hearts, red, and red hearts, with the hearts being in the background of the skirt. The one on the right is pink hearts, and you will notice the red on the left has the word "love" shadowed behind the main texture instead of the hearts. Just try each on and see which suits your tastes :)


My final look this evening comes from Princess Stuff, and both the dress and headpiece are included in this generous prize. The dress is called Ask For My Name, and comes in sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies. Also included is the Valentine Date on my head, which as you can see in the closeup has pink champagne bottles and glasses garnished with strawberries, with black and pink bubbles. Such a playful addition! Also I think the cupid on the dress's hem is subtle enough that you can wear this whenever you please.

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

Stupid Cupid

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some prizes to share from the Stupid Cupid Hunt 8, a fun $1L gridwide hunt where we are looking for the arrows that cupid has dropped in various stores. Some of his prizes are pro-Valentines, some are against it (he is called stupid after all), and some are not strongly holiday themed. The hunt lasts through the remainder of the month, and the locations along with hints and preview photos are on the hunt's website to guide you though. The arrows we are looking for are gold with a red heart tip, and when you click to purchase it might be easiest to aim for that heart tip or golden feathers on the other end since the shaft is pretty narrow and tricky to click. I have mentioned plenty of times before that I will gladly wear holiday themed fashions before or after the day of their holiday, since the season doesn't end until I decide it does ;) What I mean is that Valentines was only a couple of days ago, so I feel no shame in enjoying these for a while.


This intriguing dress is our hunt prize from MOoH! called Becky, and I couldn't resist when I saw all those slender straps. It comes in standard sizes for classic avatars as well as versions for Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh bodies. There is also a HUD with 6 color options, and I think cupid may have influenced me to choose the bold red as one of the two I showed you above.


Find the arrow at Emerald Couture, and you can claim their EC Luv N Kisses for just one linden :) It includes the top, skirt, and full outfit (both linked) each in eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, and having the separate pieces means that you can match them up with other wardrobe favorites as well for variety. I enjoy the slight asymmetry of the skirt, both waistband and hemline, and the way the ruffles are coordinated to contrast perfectly. The little lip prints are a nod to Valentines Day while still being appropriate for any day of the year.


This effortlessly elegant dress comes from the arrow at Ema's Secret, their Sam Dress TSCH8 Gift. It comes in Freya, Hourglass, and Maitreya sizing, and features a deep burgundy shade with a subtle paisley pattern embellished on the skirt. It looks to be materials enabled, since I see a touch of reflectivity on the upper left (my avi's left that is) chest, so I suggest wearing this near a light source and see what happens :) 


Ooohh, this is a playful style! Allow me to introduce the AC Lucy - Valentine Dress from Aurora's Closet, with an eye-catching peekaboo opening and a wraparound section with hearts that is tied at the waist. This beauty comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing. 


For my final look of the evening, I chose the hunt prize from BlondeQueen which is their BQ::Duo Top & Skirt:: Valentine Stupid Cupid outfit. Each piece includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Legacy, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, with a solid colored skirt and patterned wisp of a top that says Be Mine and Love in gold with hearts and cupids. 

Today was nowhere near as busy as Saturday, but I do still feel rather tired so I am glad to have a few days ahead with no appointments or urgent plans. I hope you're all having a fantastic day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
