Skin:Vive9, free
Dress, Boots, Hair, Hair Clips: Anuenue, group gifts (hair is in store across from where the clothing is)

I Am a Bijouaholic

Bijou gift? Why, yes please! Not sure how much longer it is available so go grab! You can find it in the new release region of the gigantor shop. Love.
The shoes are the group gift from Yourskin & Yourshape for New Years. (I colored the feet white to match the stockings :P) Is this one of the most generous groups ever or what?

The skin is 3L and by a store I *think* is called +m.o.c.h.a.+ (TY Sydd). I saw a link to a freebie vampire skin on GoGo's blog which ended up not being there when I arrived, but a super friendly and adorable lady was there to point me in the direction of two 3L cute skins for New Years.
Dress and Stockings: Bijou, group gift
Shoes: YS&YS, group gift

Ultra Special

LeLutka is about to release the Ultra Collection. Those of us that were tantalised by the show have been waiting impatiently for this day, one of the masks are top of my list of purchases :P



Shown here are 2 of the 3 gifts that were sent out via the group this evening. At present, there is no joining fee, but this is a group that deserves one of your 25 regardless.



The pieces are stunning and completely open to mix/matching and your imagination. Have a safe and happy New Year, and may 2010 bring everything you want <3 Ash Out.

Nomine Chair Time

Nomine has tons of items in the lucky chair right now. Gowns, lingerie, sexy ensembles, and my favorite, the babydoll dress.

I'm not even sure of how many of these cute little dresses are in the chairs, but I got these four so far and I know that there are more I have not won. The time is 10 minutes between letters so not too long (but of course you can join an awesome group like Lucky Chair Stalkers to get those letters moving faster ;D).
Dresses: Nomine, lucky chair prizes
Skin: Mango, Mango!, part of the 69L Humpday set
Hair: BP, pretty sure it's not available anymore but I could be wrong

My Favorite Freebies 09

Sileny IM'ed me last night and asked me if I was going to do a post for my favorites for '09.  Initially hestitant, I woke up this morning with a mental list of hundreds of gifts from so many generous and talented designers.  My hestitancy lies, beyond my sometimes grumpiness, in the fact that it is impossible to pick just one.  I am a certified clothes horse, and while I blog on a "freebie" blog I am fascinated with SL fashion and the stunning creativity of so many people.  Last night I was near tears at the most recent Designer's United collection for the sheer wit and beauty of the collection.  The items are not free but do yourself a favor and go, if not to spend, than to get see the varied works on a vaudeville theme.

In the end, I had to pick for my all time favorite freebie of 2009 to be Poe's Lucky Chair Jeans from SRU.  I have hundreds of jeans in my inventory but these are the pair I always fall back on.  The lucky chair version comes with fantastic hand painted graphics on the legs and back pocket and have several leg options.  The jeans, sadly, are not available in the chair anymore, though you can buy nonpainted ones in the store.  Another favorite of mine was Zeery's Aurora Australis scarf.  Reason?  I had to think about colors as well as think about how to more effectively use accessories.  I also gained a lovely friend in the designer,Zeerya Pyrithea, which has been a true pleasure.  For stockings, I always love the dollarbies at Sock Shop.  I went a bit nuts at Deviant Kitties hair sale earlier this year.  The Alienor style is very similar to my RL hair.  I also love the No No No tattoo, free at Aitui.  There was no shortage of excellent free or inexpensive skin this year.  My favorites were Tuli's Picks gifts and Cupcakes new Daydream and Seduction V.2 lines, which are often available for so cheap it's nearly a sin.

Belleza, Baby Dolls, and Amazing Gowns, Oh My!

I have been out shopping and have found some fantastic freebies and dollarbies and I am ready to share!

FunDresses1

Shirohato has a bunch of adorable dresses for just ONE linden! Gotta love it!

FunDresses2

These are four of about eight of the one linden dresses and all of her other dresses are around 60 lindens! A total steal.

Belleza29DEC

Here's a closeup of the December group gift from Belleza: totally gorgeous skins for men and women in three different tones. It does cost 250 to join the Belleza group but skins like these can run you 1500 lindens and up so its well worth it. I've worn the Belleza skins in all of the photos above so you can see the different versions. Make sure to grab them from past notices in the group before they are gone!

29DEC_WhiteDress

I went for the femme fatale look with this asian inspired dress from +Lika Ruby+. It's another group gift but this group is free to join. Put your tag on and touch the sign in the store to get yours.

Fave Freebie Post

I am hoping to get people from this blog, and other blogs, to post their favorite freebie of the year! Most of us do not thank the designers who give us these awesome treats nearly enough. We forget that it takes real life money, time, creativity and energy to make these gifts for us. So let's say thank you! Bloggers, consider this a blogger challenge. Those of you who don't blog, leave a comment or post on your Flickr streams or Plurk it or Tweet or just send a thank you IM to a creator. What better way to end a year and start a new one than giving thanks to those who make our second lives more enjoyable?
My two personal favorite freebies this year were the Unbirthday Redux subscriber gift hair from Lamb and the Masquerade skin from Street Dermatology. Both are no longer free but that's not the point of this post :P I love them. I bet the vast majority of you who got them do too. So thank you Lamb and Akila for these great gifts, from us!

P.S.- The great shirt is a current freebie. It's by Couverture and is available at the Designers United event. Pure Love.

Oyakin Group Gift

This beautiful dress from Oyakin has me thinking of dusty young women in the lost American plains preparing for the town dance; the mating ritual of vintage corn town folk under tangled Christmas light strewn arches.
The dress can be worn many ways, only two are shown here.

Worn:
Dress: Oyakin, group gift in notices
Skin: [KA] Designs, free (part of full female avatar freebie and there is a male one as well)
Hair: Pocket Mirrors, not free
Necklace: Eolande's, not free
Poses: Glitterati, not free
