Come See What the Hot Fuss Is About

Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting a single store, Hot Fuss, where the group tag entitles you to several different gifts plus the chance to win on the lucky boards upstairs. There are gifts and prizes for men and women, so everyone can join the group for free and benefit from hanging out there. Their creations are mainly clothing and jewelry, and some items have HUDs with color or texture choices for added variety.


My first look this evening is the Hot Fuss "Tiffany" Dress, a group gift that might have been released around Halloween but is subtle enough for year round. The dress comes in a bevy of mesh sizes (5 classic, 5 fitmesh, 5 busty, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) and has intricate straps in the back for a great rear view. 


Another group gift just waiting to be claimed is the Hot Fuss "Mia" Dress, a very open style held in place by delicate metal chains in two places. There is a HUD included to change those chains to gold or silver, both of which look sharp against the various shades of grey. This flirtatious frock comes in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions.


If you are in a winter holiday mood, be sure to grab the Hot Fuss "Footies" Pajamas WOMEN group gift, a one piece sleep set in fitmesh standard sizes plus versions for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. There is also a HUD that lets you switch between the two designs shown above. 


Head upstairs to the lucky boards, where you can claim wonderful prizes like these two :) The top is the Hot Fuss "Rowan" top, and the pants are the Hot Fuss "Scout" Capris. Each come in standard mesh sizing, and there is a HUD for each: 7 colors for the top, 5 for the capris. The top's colors all have that pretty embroidery on the bust, and all the colors for the pants have the same low slung belt. You can pair either of these with anything you prefer, this just happened to be a convenient and cute way to share both of these at once with you.


My final look of the evening is the Hot Fuss "Phoenix" Outfit, a lucky board prize that consists of both the top and the skirt seen here. The top comes in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions, while the skirt comes in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink). These pieces could be matched up with anything you wish, even other lucky board prizes or group gifts from here, but I do think they look terrific together.

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

I'm a Fitmesh Fanatic

Hiya everyone! Tonight I explored and found some gifts from the Fitmesh Fanatics group, which is free to join and has dozens of participating designers. There are plenty of places to find gifts that you can claim with the group tag active, and I usually keep an eye on group notices and group chat for information. I actually checked several of the stores involved in recent group posts to see if they had a gift available and that is how I found tonight's treats :)


First we visit the Z Black store, where we can claim their ::ZB:: Agua Marine Outfit gift. It includes the top in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes (5 standard, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, Slink) and the strappy top in fitmesh standard sizes plus Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions. Even the sandals are provided, in a Slink Flat size. As I keep telling myself, spring will be here soon, and the warmer weather can inspire such fun wardrobe choices like this.


Our next stop is *It's Gau* where we get to pick up this beautiful Veronica Dress as our group gift. It is exactly what you need for your next night out, with that sequin texture and elegant silvery hues. The gift includes standard mesh sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and TMP versions.


I was really drawn to this next gift because of the color and the style. It is found at the IBAN store, and is the exclusive Fitmesh Fanatics group gift called Valentine. There are actually two pieces here, the dress and skirt (the exposed side and the fringe are the skirt portion) and they each come in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Fox, and Werwolf. The material is quite sheer, just take a peek at my belly button showing through to get an idea.


If you find yourself craving something a bit more revealing, keep that group tag on and head over to Petry Model and pick up their Dress FGD. It comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with a HUD included offering 10 color choices. Some have black lace trim and others have white, and the straps match the lace on all. I tend to try out all the HUD options before picking a color, even if I think I know which I'm going to select, just for fun.


Ava Design has a flirty little top as their Fitmesh Fanatics gift for us called Adela. It includes sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with a HUD that lets you choose from 8 different textures. There are plenty of cheerful colors among the patterns, and I am wearing the top with my favorite Marketplace find, free jeans by Delizio which come in several colors as system layers along with appliers for Maitreya and Omega.

I am in the midst of another slow feeling, busy seeming week...not really bad, just on the dull side I suppose. I hope you're all having a terrific day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Composer Girls Fashion

Hiya everyone! Tonight we are visiting a single store, Composer Girls Fashion, and claiming group gifts for a trio of groups that are all free to join. I visited this store recently for the first time and really enjoyed what I saw, with many full outfits that include footwear and usually jewelry. Some days we might be in a hurry and not want to put together an entire look from scratch, so it is wonderful to have these treats handy.


First we have one of the two group gifts for the Composer Girls Fashion store group, this one being called !CGF-Cashmere 2 Faded Black Jeans Outfit. The corset and jeans are each included in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, while the shoes are in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High fits. The choker and bracelet for the left wrist are provided too, adding touches of sparkle to the overall look. Can I just take a minute to comment on how fun these jeans are? The double belt, high waist look is intriguing, and those back pockets are really flattering. The flared style works so well with high heels, too. It was a great idea to pair it with a short enough top to highlight the waist.


The other gift waiting for those who join the store's free group is called !CGF-*Chloe* (Black) Jeans Outfit, and it has a distinct level of flirtatiousness to it too. The open shirt and jeans are mesh, each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. The bra comes in appliers for Omega and Maitreya, and the matching heels are for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High feet. The gift also contains the choker (same as the prior gift) and a watch for the left wrist, so we have our accessories too.


This is the gift for the Avangardista group, which is free to join, and the gift is called !CGF-*Princess Faded Black* Outfit. It consists of the jacket in standard mesh sizes plus Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions, as well as the boots/jeans combo (yep, a single easy-to-wear piece) in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. The jeans are mid-rise, with just a sliver of belly peeking from beneath the uniquely shaped hem of the jacket. 


The SLMB or SL Mesh Body group is fairly new to me, and it is free to join so I was glad to make its acquaintance. The Composer Girls Fashion gift for it is the !CGF-*Siren* (Charcoal) Jeans & Boots Complete Outfit, with plenty of fun details. The top comes in sizes for eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine, while the slender jeans are in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. The open toed and heeled boots come in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink Mid heights, and also included are the golden necklace and watch for the left wrist. Did you notice a tiny pink gleam on my belly button? Well that is another accessory you'll find in this generous gift, a piercing that is fitted for Freya, Isis, Venus, Eve Pulpy, Eve Slim, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP mesh bodies. I would suggest just trying them all out if your mesh body isn't listed to see if one suits you. The hardest part of this evening is picking a favorite look!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

TeleportHub.com Gifts

Hiya everyone! Tonight I decided to see what's new in the world of the TeleportHub.com group, and I think you'll be pleased with what I discovered to share. In addition to all the great information they provide about sales and special events, there are group gifts exclusively for their members at various stores, and the group fee is just $10L to join. I have shared some of their group gifts before, and certainly will do so again in the future :) 


First we have the group gift from Pearl Fashion, the *PF::Lovely Valentines dress which lives up to that name for sure. It comes in sizes for Altamura, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique, with a trio of colors available via HUD. Besides the pink and black shown above, there is a white option with white lace on the top, all excellent choices.


New Line Store has a flirty look for us, their Outfit Gianna Fatpack. The dress and boots each come in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes, and there is a HUD included that lets you choose from 10 textures for the dress and 10 coordinating solid colors for the boots. I love the mid calf height for the boots, and those buckles leading down to the open toed style are so fun! The detached sleeves and bare shoulders are a clever contrast to the cowl neckline.


At first glance, this gift from AMUI could be taken as a casual top and capris pairing, but a closer look at their Delia - Baroque outfit shows a modern take on a style that Princess Jasmine would have been delighted to wear. The top and capris are each provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. There is also a handy HUD that lets you change the pieces individually to your choice of 6 colors. 


If your RL weather has you craving an SL getaway to somewhere warm, this Margo Skirt Dress Fatpack from anny's Fashion will suit you perfectly. It has a HUD that offers 6 color choices, and comes in plenty of mesh sizes for all: 5 classic, 5 fitmesh, eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. Rather than at the mainstore, anny's Fashion is offering this gift at the Haus der Lust event, so that is where my ending credits link will be whisking you.


My final look of the evening is from Enigma Apparel, their [EN] Valentina Dress *Gift*. It wears as a single piece while looking like two, and comes in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body sizes. The jacket has terrific details like the sharp cuffed sleeves, and the skirt (surprisingly short in the back!) is a pretty pleated number. 

It has certainly been an interesting evening, thanks to some high winds I have lost power once and will most likely lose it again before the weather calms down tomorrow night. Otherwise I had an enjoyable weekend, and am eager to see what the new week holds. I hope you're all having a beautiful day/evening, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Love Me some LIVIA

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some hunt prizes to show you, from the Love Me - Not Hunt. It is a $1L gridwide hunt that runs until the end of the month, so you have almost a week to track down these terrific prizes. The hunt object we're looking for is a red rose bud (no stem, just the bloom) and there are hints on the website to help you. The prizes are Valentines themed without being overly specific, meaning they will look splendid well beyond this month and season. Completing all my looks tonight are some new nails from LIVIA, which I will fill you in on at the very end with a closer look too.


My first look is the prize from Aguas, their charming Sophie Valentines Mesh Dress. It is included in a fitmesh standard version along with sizes for eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique bodies. The golden gleam of the belt and bow look so pretty against the shades of red, don't they?


I got such a chuckle from this fun prize, the Love Bites Outfit from Southern Sass. It includes the knotted t-shirt and shorts, each in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizes. A word of warning - the shirts are "no copy" so the automatic unpacker from wearing the HUD will not unpack them, you must rez it to the ground and right click - open. Believe me, I was confused when I went to the folder at first and only found shorts, so I am speaking from first hand experience. The t-rex chomping on a heart while stomping on the words LOVE BITES make for a hilarious shirt, and the shorts are daringly short with ties at each upper thigh.


Waffles is offering two different prizes hiding in their store, one for the men and this darling *WW* Love Me Chole Dress for the ladies. I didn't notice that it was based on the same mesh as the first prize I shared until I took the photos, and honestly it doesn't bother me to have multiple versions of the same dress because I like seeing how each designer chooses to texture it :) It comes in a fitmesh standard size for classic avatars, plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique mesh body versions. Helpful hint to find this one - teleport to the floor of women's fashions.


I slipped back into the shorts from Southern Sass because I needed some bottoms to wear with the prize from MadCatCreations. Their rose also contains something for the men, but the ladies will want to unpack this sweater and tank top set that you can wear layered or separately. They are each provided in standard fitmesh sizes along with eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. I am thinking this would look great with a favorite pair of jeans or leggings for these cooler months too, and the tank with both solid and broken hearts can bring you clear into summer if you wish.


LIVIA has a fantastic new set of Bento mesh nails that caught my attention since I love black combined with either gold or silver, so elegant! These are their Black Matte Glitter Bento Nails [Ballerina], with a very popular shape and intriguing designs. They include versions for Maitreya, Slink, Tuty, and Tonic hands, each in medium (shown) or long lengths, and a HUD with 20 designs to choose from, all for just $199L. You can polish them all at once in the same gorgeous style, or choose one of the 5 nails on the HUD to do just both index fingers, both ring fingers, etc. There are plenty of glittery designs, and various stripes and bands of gold or silver across the satiny matte black polish. These are so easy to wear, too...just hide the nails that are built onto your hands with the hands' HUD, and add the LIVIA nails that match your hand brand. Then you get to play with the manicure HUD and choose your style!

It was a somewhat busy day today, and tomorrow will be even more so, as a matter of fact I will be taking the evening off from blogging because of it. All is well, I just have a lot going on and am going to take a little break to recharge my creative batteries :) I hope you're all having a nice day/evening and have a fun weekend ahead, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!

Treats from Free Dove

Hiya everyone! Tonight I invite you back to a favorite haunt of mine, The Free Dove, where with a free group tag you can claim dozens of gifts from designers all across the grid. Just because they no longer hold monthly mini-hunts doesn't mean we shouldn't still visit from time to time, and I suggest passing the landmark along to new residents who might need a little help finding affordable clothing and accessories. I have been grateful for Free Dove's existence as long as I've been in SL which is over 11 years now, and it impresses me that they are still a vital part of Second Life. I went mostly casual tonight, as a matter of fact you will find all of these on the displays labeled Womens Casual.


This wonderful look is our gift from Composer Girls Fashion, called !CGF *Xanadu* White Jeans/Jacket Outfit. Our jacket and jeans are each provided in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions. The tank top beneath the jacket is in appliers for Omega and Maitreya, and the matching shoes come in Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink High fits. Even the necklace and bracelet for the left wrist are included in this generous gift.


Emerald Couture is offering this complete outfit called EC Dolores Outfit Latex Pink as its Free Dove group gift, and it is a versatile and flirty look. The jacket and dress each come in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions, and the boots are provided in the same sizes. The fishnet stockings have black and white versions included as you can see, each as a multi-applier that is compatible with Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink. You could always wear this without the jacket if you prefer, or take it off as the day/evening progresses.


Less casual and more flirty is the group gift from KingbalStores called KS Amalia Dress Camo Plain. It features wide slits on each thigh, crisscrossed straps in the front, and a camouflage pattern that I don't expect would actually hide you or lessen the attention you would receive for wearing this ;) It comes in standard mesh versions along with Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP sizes.


This dress from [[ Masoom ]] is in the casuals section but could be easily made to look more formal with the right accessories, it all depends on where you are wearing it and what shoes, jewelry, and hairstyle you choose. It is called Hannah Dress Grayed Jade, and comes in sizes for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, and TMP mesh bodies. The lower portion of the pencil skirt has an intricate embossed design, and the bare shoulders and neckline would be ideal to show off a necklace or shawl.


We finish the evening by going back to casual, thanks to the gift from AvaGirl called Jessy Hot Pink. The comfy looking t-shirt with heart shaped buttons and matching yoga leggings each are included in what I call the lucky 13 of mesh sizes: 5 classic, 5 fitmesh, Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. The shades of pink coordinate nicely for a cheery look that will flatter nearly everyone.

I feel really slow tonight, so I'll just wrap this up with a wish for a beautiful day/evening to you all, and plenty of magical magpie hugs for everyone!!

Beautiful at La Bella Boutique

Hiya everyone! Tonight I have some more group gifts from La Bella Boutique to share with you, since there are far too many to limit to one post. Their free group's tag reads I Am Beautiful, probably referring to the "bella" in the store name meaning beautiful as well as their merchandise being so lovely. If you enjoy television and movie themed clothing, this store might be right up your alley and many of these gifts would have appeal too.


First I have a flirty skirt set to show you, the {LBB} Mariposa Outfit. The top and skirt each come in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. There are HUDs provided too, offering 18 colors for the top and 12 textures for our butterfly winged skirt.


Next we have the {LBB} Jem Outfit, whose top, shorts, and shoes are each included in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. The HUD for the top holds 24 different textures, while the other HUD for shorts/shoes has 14 colors for each. Even the earrings I'm wearing here are included in this generous group gift!


{LBB} Mary Outfit is a lacy look that will surely turn heads wherever you wear it. This fierce mini is short enough to reveal some bum cheek from behind, and sheer enough to reveal, well, more than that ;) The boots are crafted with beautiful lace all the way up to mid-thigh, with a transparent back that makes the lace even more noticeable. Each is provided in Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique sizing, with a HUD that lets you choose from 14 colors for the dress and/or boots separately.


Yesterday I mentioned there being gifts that are inspired by television and movies (both of which have drawn heavily from comic universes lately) and this {LBB} Themyscira Outfit is a prime example. The name is the island home of the Amazons, notably Diana a.k.a. Wonder Woman, and the outfit is a terrific homage to her. The shirt and shorts are each included in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions, with HUDs that offer 10 color choices each. The boots are also provided, with a 12 color HUD so you can get really creative with this full outfit.


My final look this evening is the {LBB} Kaida Dress, another generous group gift that includes standard mesh sizes as well as eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine fits. There is also an enclosed HUD that offers 8 color/texture combinations, some on the sweeter side and some in darker tones, so a very nice variety. It has a Gothic Lolita feel to it, really fun and eye-catching.

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

La Bella Boutique

Hiya everyone! Tonight we visit La Bella Boutique, where you can join their VIP group for free to be able to claim dozens of gifts. These include clothing, hair, makeup, tattoos, shoes, and more, so it is well worth taking a look :) It is a nice sampling of their full range of merchandise available in their store, so have fun exploring while you are there.


This first look is the terrific gift called {LBB} Marisol Gown, and includes so much more than the gown! That is provided in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP, all with a few butterflies built into the skirt. There are separate attachments for even more butterflies though, 6 of them in fact, and each individual butterfly can be clicked to turn animation (wing flapping) off and on. The bouquet I'm holding in front of me is provided too, with the hold animation built in. How can this ensemble be even more versatile? With the HUD provided, yes there is a HUD that lets you choose from 7 colors/textures for the gown, 7 for the butterflies, and even 6 for the roses of the bouquet. I could have taken a dozen different photos of this look, but decided to stick with just the one, knowing that you will be able to create your own perfect look once you claim this for yourself.


There are a fair number of TV/movie inspired gifts, such as this {LBB} Evie Outfit inspired by the Descendants. The dress is included in standard mesh sizes plus eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine versions. The boots and choker are also provided, as well as a HUD that lets you change the dress between the two textures shown above.


The lovely {LBB} Angelique Outfit consists of a very flirty dress and heels laced all the way up to our mid-thigh, each in sizes for Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. There is even a handy HUD with 13 different colors to tint the dress and shoes separately, so you can mix and match the shades to your heart's content. The lace atop the dress is a seductive touch, same with those dangerously high thigh slits :)


The boho/hippie part of my soul wants to throw on a long necklace, jangly earrings, and a pair of sandals to go dancing through a sunlit field in this gift :) It is the {LBB} Esmeralda Outfit, a reference to the object of Quasimodo's affection, and includes the top, skirt, and shawl you see here. Each come in standard mesh sizes along with Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink versions, and the shawl is the top black layer on the skirt with the side knot. 


One last look this evening, we see the gift called {LBB} Mal Outfit, another Descendants influenced gift. The mesh jacket comes in standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique versions, while the mesh pants are included in standard mesh sizes as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink fits. The boots are provided too, and the inner shirt beneath the jacket comes in appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, and Slink, in 4 different colors. You can layer green, pink, purple, or white beneath the opening of the jacket. 

There is another winter storm on the horizon, so I am hoping everyone stays safe and warm the next couple of days. Many magical magpie hugs to all of you!!
