Quick Look- Pumpkin 3.14 from AXEL

posted by Gidge Uriza

Just a quick one! It’s Thanksgiving and this tank is one of four freebies from AXEL that are out today! I’m in love with AXEL but only so far had time to pick up this sweet little skirt to go with the tank. They have several “shops” each with a different theme – which is great – sort of like a department store. Continue reading

You would have to know that even though I HAD a bikini all picked out and accessorized for my pool party last night, as soon as Alice07 Barzane showed up with her Peppermint Blue Newbie Assistance Pack I’d have to slip into this lacey little set. (Bikinis and Lingerie are totally interchangeable in my mind!)

Patriotica Part Seven – Hippie Hippie Shake

I had to admit I gave a giggle when I spotted this number on SLX. Not a total snicker, but OMG It’s got a scarf at the shoulder and bell bottom swishy sheer legs. Uber fun! It includes SKIN, and several different hair colors. I’m not wearing the skin, it was more pale than I care for but it was stars and stripes forever, I promise you that! It was a lot of fun but I opted to break out Hatchy’s USA FLAG skin instead. Continue reading

Patriotica Part Five – Fresh Baked Patriotism

posted by Gidge Uriza

Another designer that is generous with the freebies especially around the holidays is SYD – Style Your Destiny.  For just a linden you can pick up this sweet little July 4 dress in their store in world or on ONREZ. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to break out my color change bracelets from Fresh Baked Goods.  I love these – any bracelet that I can make work with any outfit is definitely a best buy.

I Ain't No Holla Back Girl

Miffy was horrified that I had been in SL over a year and only owned on proper set of boots. So when she gave me these – I knew I had to rock a fun outfit to go with. Something MAD MAX vs. spoiled Diva was what I was going for.

Digit Darkes had a L$1 sale on a hidden item, the Piper shirt and it was an incredible find.  Some designers do separates well, some do full outfits, but Digit does both and it’s so much fun to pick up a new piece and see what you can do with it. Continue reading

If Funk and Punk Had a Baby

She would totally dress like this.

When Cajsa suggested Play that Funky Music as our theme for the midweek MDR party I knew right away which new dress I was going to wriggle into.  From Kuri Style, I got turned onto this dress when I first saw it on Free*Style and had been waiting for a fun social event to wear it to. And of course any excuse to pull out one of my favorite hairstyles – Edgy Wilds from Diversity Hair. I can’t even find this hair anymore at the shop so I may be the only one on the grid who liked it.  (Note – ALERI DARKES I LOVE THIS HAIR!) Continue reading

Long Weekend Relax – And some EXCELLENT Freebies

posted by Gidge Uriza
I wanted to be comfy for Memorial Day and remembered that I had a slew of casual separates from WRONG – from Christmas when they gave away a gift a day. Sliding into jeans and a light cotton sweater was an quick and easy choice, especially for a day of boating or cooking out or whatever I was going to be doing. (It gets cold on boats at night you know!).

Plus I’ve been looking for an excuse to wear these Marilyn Monroe shoes I got at Artilleri – so something black seemed like a good fit!

Gentlemen, Start Your Engines

The Indy 500 has always meant a lot to me. I’m a fan. Growing up in Indianpolis I looked forward to the ENTIRE month of May and all the social events that revolved around the race. When I was about 3, when my grandfather was the mayor, my grandmother won a raffle at the Mayors Breakfast event – a black and white check mink stole. Continue reading

We're The Bomb

Ever buy something JUST so you’d have an excuse to take a cool picture? When I was putzing around Digit Darkes looking for shoes the other day I remembered that Freestyle had done a post about Aleri Darkes (located conveniently next door) having men’s bomber jackets on sale for $L1.
I quickly shot Cajsa a note, telling her we should get the jackets and to a tough girl shoot – just for fun.
