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!!

Je Suis Tres Chic

Hiya everyone! Tonight we are celebrating the TRES CHIC event's 5 anniversary, where you can find dozens of gifts in honor of the occasion. Just wear your free Tres Chic group tag and click any gift box you see, then you get to go home and have an unpacking party ;) This really is a good month for events and anniversaries, isn't it? Your group tag will read "Je suis Tres Chic" which explains my title, sorry that I do not speak French but I do know that it means I am very chic. When you shop there and enjoy these gifts, you certainly will be extra chic! One stop first though, as the terrific [Ari-Pari] store is participating in an event called Yin/Yang with $45L selections at the participating designers' mainstores, so I could not resist sharing one of their current offers that speaks to my inner Boho beauty. 


My first look is the [Ari-Pari] Hippie Chick Peasant Dress, which you can purchase at their mainstore for just $45L until the end of the month. This is one of two exclusive Yin/Yang offers, the other being a lovely peace symbol necklace. The dress includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies, with a HUD to let you choose from 10 different colors of the same fun pattern. I love it and all the vibrant colors that really show off the flowers and paisley in the design.


Over to the Tres Chic event, where among the many gifts I found this flirty .:Beyond:. gift named Angelina - Black. It consists of two versions of each, top and skirt, sized for the Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya bodies. The striped pattern on the top (left) is very subtle, while the skirt is more of a grey plaid, and you can mix and match them however you wish. 


Several of the gifts are rather provocative, like this Sexy Justine Set 7 from [ LSR ]. The shiny dress and tiny string thong each come in Freya, Isis, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizing, with a gold zipper in the front. This is definitely on the revealing side because of how short it is, so please keep that in mind when deciding where to wear it.


I do appreciate delicate lingerie, so I was thrilled to try on this gift from [Glitzz] called Becky Lingerie - Royal. The open weave of the lace shows peeks of skin, and the rear view is amazing with that intricate bra back and tiny bow atop the thong. The bra and panties each come in Maitreya and Hourglass sizes. 


Even my final look of the evening is a flirtatious one, consisting of a sheer floaty dress and high waisted thong. This is the gift from Mangue called Marika Dress, and inside you will find four colors of each piece (black, pink, red, white) in Freya, Hourglass, Legacy, and Maitreya sizing. On the left I wore the pink dress and panty, while on the right is the white dress with red panty beneath. That gives you an idea of the transparency of the material, with the solid fabric showing through just a touch.

I had a nice dinner with my parents, and I feel like I need to stress that the only other place I ever go is to pick up food from the farmers market where they bring your order to your car window while wearing masks and gloves, so I am not taking any risks by continuing to go less than a mile to their home. We all wash our hands often while there, do not touch each other or breathe on each other, maintain reasonable distance, and none of us have any symptoms of any illness. We all agreed already that if any of us is worried or exhibits any signs of being sick at all, we will discontinue and seek treatment for everyone's sake. I just didn't want anyone reading this to think that my family or I are being careless or taking things lightly, we are not :) Tomorrow I will be picking up that food I mentioned, so I will be wearing a cute mask with pandas on it. I have more gifts from Tres Chic to share for tomorrow's post, so I am glad to have that planned to make my day easier. I hope you all have a safe and pleasant weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Let's Get Deals

Hiya everyone! Tonight we are going to explore the 35L Sunday event called "It's May! Let's Get Deals!". There are many participating designers who offer special discounted selections here, and if you are in the 35L Sunday VIP group (free to join) you can claim gifts which are inside black gift boxes tied with red ribbon and bow. They event is open until the end of the month, so you have over a week to stop by and get some deals and treats. 


My first look starts with the group gift from Uncontrollably called Lylla Dress - LadyBug. It includes sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and a standard version. There is also a HUD with 4 textures for the dress and 3 colors for the belt. I have a soft spot for ladybugs because a dear friend used to call me ladybug as a nickname :) The lovely necklace I am wearing here is the gift from VENGE, their Original Mesh Fairy Crystal Necklace. When you claim this gift, you will receive the non-rigged necklace plus 3 HUDs - copper, gold, and silver - each with 6 texture choices for the crystal. So versatile!


Anny's Fashion is offering a group gift too, their [AF] Gene PickledCucumber Elegant Jumpsuit. It is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine sizing, with a sumptuous velvety texture and mostly bare back. The lace embroidery on the top is such a pretty look, and the style is flattering to my curves.


Look out, hot stuff! This is the {AP}Baby Bodysuit gift from Angel Pink, that consists of daringly sheer bodysuit and low slung denim shorts each in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizing. There is also a HUD for the bodysuit with 3 textures, the two shown above and a subtle floral print. The tiny shorts look great trimmed with lace, and I would happily layer them atop any bodysuit or bikini.


My final look of the evening is another pairing of two gifts, which I do enjoy doing :) The top is from ZFG and is called Debbie Pyramid, since it reads "Caffeine is the foundation of my food pyramid" across the front. Preach! The gift is provided in sizes for Freya, Venus, Hourglass, Physique, and Maitreya bodies, all with that single bared shoulder for a little flirtatiousness. The jeans are from Loordes of London, The Garden Co-Op-#3, in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. The brown belt is attached, and there are matching brown heart patches on the front and the back. I appreciate the casually cuffed style and the slight distressed spots too.

It was a calm day in preparation for a couple of busy ones, with dinner at my parents' tomorrow evening and then picking up farmers market purchases Saturday. It is reassuring to have these tiny consistent habits from before things went so haywire in the world, since I know they will be part of my new normal whatever that turns out to be. I feel the same way about blogging and SL in general, finding them reliable and comforting. In a few hours my KittyCats! kitten will be full grown at 7 days old, so I am excited to snuggle with him later :) I hope you're all having a safe and pleasant day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
