Those Summer days.

Well hello! I'm incredibly ecstatic to be doing my first blog post here on Free*style as a guest blogger. So I do hope you enjoy my posts! I'll try not to ramble too much, but if you know me, you'll know I'm quite the chatter box!

Todays look is inspired by the amount of music festivals which obviously occur during the hot weather. I went for something simple and wearable! It's quite a change from my normal kawaii looks! 
Those summer days
Firstly, the dress I am wearing; you only have a few days to grab it. It's a group gift from Social Vintage; so join the group (free) and check the notices before it vanishes on August 3rd! I love the dainty little lace flowers on the skirt! It really helped put together my summery-festival type outfit! 

Those summer days
I am also seriously loving these group gift glasses from Vin-cue. The group does have a fee to join (50L) but these glasses are beautiful. I love how delicately they fit on my face and with this hot weather, a girl really does need a cute pair of sunglasses.

Because of the hot weather, I've found that I've been wearing my Slink flat feet a lot more, so imagine my extreme happiness when I found these sandals which are completely free! They're from :SMC: and are a wearable demo which also include the normal system feet version incase you don't have slink feet. 

See you soon,

One of the Best Free Things This Year So Far

  2014 has been a pretty good year for awesome gifts and sales.  This month is no exception!  One of the best gifts in SL this year so far (in my opinion) is this set of doll heads from Coco.  She is giving ALL of her older mesh heads away for free.  They are meant to be worn with the mesh doll body so if you don't have this you might have some trouble using these.  I have the doll body so I could use it BUT I wanted to see if I could find a way to wear it without one.  I had to change my shape a lot, sort through a million skins to find one that matches the head, find a hair that was unrigged to fit over the head and cover the back of the neck, AND find an alpha layer to remove just the avatar head.  Sigh.  It was a lot of work.  Worth it though!
  This dress is also an awesome gift.  S@bbia always has cool group gifts so I wasn't surprised to see this great dress.  I wasn't sure what standard size I could wear with the shape I had to make for the head so thankfully this dress also had a fit mesh option.  Score!
  My hair is from Elikatira and is not free BUT until August 22nd you can get each color pack for only 99L.  That's a dang good deal for high quality, original mesh, in packs that have lots of color options in each.
  More details below!
Mesh Doll Head: DollCoco, group gift in store
Dress: S@bbia, group gift in store
Hair: Elikatira, sale item for 99L a pack

  Also, I have started to really enjoy messing around with windlights so here is a set of unedited shots in different light just for no reason but I want to. :P

My Eclectic SLife

Hi everyone.  My first post as a blogger on Free*Style is packed full of freebies and cheapies that I've picked up in the last few days. I have a bit of an eclectic taste when it comes to fashion, accessories and furniture so hopefully I can appeal to a wide range of readers =)

All the furniture I have for you today are dollarbies from a new to me store called Frogstar.  It's all 100% original mesh and so cute.  I'm sensing that the creator is a bit of a book worm with all the book/reading related items. All the benches come with a heap of sit poses to choose from but I chose to stand up and show off my new outfit and I'm using a freebie pose from Pipit \o/

While I'm normally a dark colours and bold patterns kid of girl - I can't go past the cute stuff now and then.  The fox sweater from MoonAmore tickled my fancy so I had to grab it and while I was there I saw the skirt as well and through I could make a cute little outfit with the two of them. I want to talk about the skin for a moment before I end this post.  While it's not a special or discount it is a very inexpensive skin from a talented skin maker that was away for a while and has recently returned.  !Imabee is only on the MP at the moment and there are only three skins to choose from, but at $200L and under for the skins it's a steal!  They also come included with the SLink feet and hand appliers.

Until next time *waves*

Sileny Face

  The store New Faces gives so many gifts to their VIP group.  It's awesome.  In fact, there are two in the notices as we speak.  One of the gifts is this skin.  I think it's pretty different from most skins around right now so it's definitely worth a try.
  My hair is not free but it's at Hair Fair where just about everything has at least some portion of each sale donated to Wigs For Kids.  We at Free*Style love promoting charity so go to Hair Fair and show some support!  I am a bit biased to this hair style because it's called Sileny.  What can I say, I am a sucker for anything that has my av name.
  Check out the details below!
Skin: New Faces, VIP group gift (100L join fee), also a makeup gift in notices right now.
Hair: Alice Project @ Hair Fair
Eyes: Umeboshi @ The Gallery Gift Shop, hunt gift
