Freebies Galore!!!

It’s day 4 of this current FoaB and I have some tasty morsels for you. More Vive9 and Zaara, plus something from Cupcakes and new goodies from Vixen Hair.

First out on the catwalk is a casual ensemble from Vive9.

I love the texturing on the sweater, with shadows in the right places and a neckline that is not too deep or low. I paired this with the Becca jeans for that day out in the park kind of look. The texturing on the jeans were great too, but the sculpted cuffs were not Emmi’s style.

I hadn’t been to Vixen Hair in ages, so was surprised to see that it had been refurbished. The lucky chairs had been restocked with new prizes, and Emmi got 4 different hairs on Sunday & Monday… ‘E’ is not a common letter on the Lucky Chairs or Boards in SL 😦 and often winning something means a lot of hanging around waiting, which can be frustrating. Given the long waits, Emmi was thrilled with her goodies. The hair shown in all the pictures is the Jasmine EspressoCurls, which is a new hairstyle recently released. Not to curly and with the right amount of bounce, a fab hair to have.

Next up is a lovely little number from Cupcakes. My previous posts that featured Cupcakes included some of their skins. However, Cupcakes also sell clothes.

Emmi won this green brocade dress from the 5 minute Lucky Chair (as there is a 2nd chair with a 2 minute wait). This was part of the old Gift Bag #5 which included a shape and a skin in 1 makeup & all tones.

Brocaded fabric is difficult to get right texture wise. But the texture of this dress is just fabulous. Luxurious brocaded velvet in a rich green, with great shadowing. This is a lovely evening dress for those semi-formal occasions.

Lastly for today at least is another evening dress, from {Zaara} called Shubh. I had a vague idea that this was an Indian name and it is. It has a meaning like all names, which is auspicious, fine. I think that it is an apt name for this dress as the detail of the patterning on the skirt and on the bodice is just exquisite and is very much based on traditional Indian designs.Unfortunately, this dress only comes in white.

I am a great fan of Zaara Kohime’s designs and Viki has a fair number of items of hers.
