Stlyin' It Up!


What's black and white and fun to make your own? Two of the hot new freebies on the grid. Dress them up or down, add layers or do some major modding, they are both great basics.

Benicia's black dress is a new gift from Sugarcube. When I was swimming in gray goo yesterday at the Hodgepodge opening I saw a ton of dots at the store. I couldn't move of course and finally gave up. It was fun to yell back and forth to the other gals though and Achariya did a great job covering the opening. Gold stars for perseverance :D. Benicia, up early, got over to Hodgepodge and did a little exploring, found some new shops and picked up a few gifts. Along with the very versatile Little Black Dress, she added the Gardens and Gauze top opening gift from Piddidle (Hodgepodge). Designed as a brief summer top, it also works very well as an accent layer. The prim trim adds a special touch.

To add a little edge, she donned the bottom layer of Fairy Wing tattoo from CyberStar BodyArt Tattoos (MM board). Shoes are oldies from a PRISM set.

My outfit began with the :::**Ray Skin**::: Myu~ *milk* dress. I loved the dress, but not all the many bows. So being a crafty gal, I moved the bows into my body where they can't be seen. Now I have a sophisticated white winter urban fairy goddess look. LOL - well I love it, whatever it is. The hood is great and could be worn with the drape shawl top with other outfits. It comes with "ears" so some modding was used there also. The dress comes in a variety of colors at the shop. Find this one amidst the others marked as a dollarbie. Four hair color choices come with the hood. I added some warm white gloves and my white Prestige boots from BAX to complete the outfit.


The trip to Hodgepodge is definitely worthwhile. There are lots of cute shops in a tasteful, parklike setting. Wander around, shop a bit and pick up a few freebies. Along with her outfit in the top photo, Benicia also found a great poseball set from *A.D.D Poses*, this cute corset top from ::::IrEn:::: and this lovely pendant and bead necklace and earring set from Ommik.

Her hair is the new group gift from Amacci.
