Ready for Spring . . . With Tea & Biscuits (My 1st Post!)

What's happening frugalistas. Some of ya might know me from my "Better Quality Freebies" lists that I distribute weekly to the Free*Style group, or thru my own blog SLexy Fashionista. The gracious Creamy invited me to join the kickass blogging team here + I have to say that I am tres honored. *Huge mwuahs* to all the Free*Style blogging crew + officers, and especially to Creamy, Sileny, Eden, Marci + Evangeline for being so gosh darn welcoming. /me luhs you ladies!

Maybe it's just me, but I've been dreaming about springtime peeking at us around the corner. This
free lavendar floral knit dress by D-Design totally suited my wistful-for-warm-weather mood + was such a 'natch with the darker plum Pelletteria Morrisey booties gift I was actually looking for when I happened upon this pretty sleeveless number.
My main homie Gavin McGinnis kindly let me borrow him for a pose or two (he's not hard on the eyes, right ladies?) Gavin is showing 2 free casual looks here from the Just for Guys Hunt, both by Pasarella. He also picked this look himself. Go man-shionista! Hee hee.

BP's new free silver bucket full o' posies were so perfect for my floral-floral mood. Naturally, sunset is the funnest time to hold pretty flowers. I think these fishies had their eyes longingly on the ocean, tho'.
This next beach-ready look comes courtesy of the freebies wall at Gigi Couture Outlet. I hadn't been there in awhile + was happy to see so many cute tops + jean skirts (that can also be worn without the skirt prim, as shorts, like I'm doing here) for either free or $1L. There's tons more reduced pieces starting at $25L and up too.
The beach bag + retro green sunglasses are free by Pelletteria Morrisey and the sparkly teal ballet flats (awww, pretty yellow stars make for happy feets!) are the free Elliot store opening gift by Tomoto.
I saw this free G&N tank top + patchwork capris outfit on The Freebie Telegraph (thank you Val -- you + Shania rock! *mwuahs*) that totally channeled a springtime mood. The tattoo I'm wearing is a free lucky board gift from I Heart Rien and features shadowy silhouettes of retro pinup girls (such a cool idea).
This relaxed, all-American look totally fit with these free red plaid ruffled T-strap heels by Nardcotix (this is 1 of 3 free shoe gifts they currently have for the Shoes & Accessories Hunt). These are really cute + the "scrunchy" ruffle textures are baked so prettily here.
To close out my first post, I wanted to give a special nod to Creamy's homeland by honoring the U.K. national beverage -- tea! How cute is this free tower of leaning teacups for your head from rbcg? -- What's actually kinda funny about this sign behind me is that Creamy says this to me all the time. -- Ahhh poor woman. Little does she know that I'm really a tres jaded soul who shamelessly uses fashion to cover my many, many other flaws. -- What up Creamster! Aren't you glad you invited me to join? *salutes*
Now since you can't have tea without biscuits, I wanted to show you one of my fave freebies in SL: Pop*Feel's homage to everyone's favorite biscuit ("biscuit" means "cookie" in the U.K., right?), the Oreo. This scrumptious free sweet treat doubles as a pose stand + most def cutesies up the whole freezing-your-avi-while-you-change bit(I have 2 in my home). F'get the tea -- pass the milk, darnit!
/me is tippy-toes excited to be keeping company with the uber-talented bloggers here. Much love + fashionista kisses to all!
