Du Papillon Delights

It was a rather uneventful day for me yesterday now that the Christmas shopping madness is over and done with and for once there seemed to be hardly anything new to go ga-ga over. But then, out of the blue, I received this notice about a shop, Du Papillon (which I'm embarrassed to say I had never heard of till now), and was delighted to find adorable little dresses in pretty colours at very affordable prices over there with quite a few dollarbies and a cute little freebie for group members too.

Green Movement

I usually don't fancy the colour green much, it reminds me of things which are quite negative--slime, mucous (yuks!), not to mention 'green with envy' *grins*, though I'm starting to appreciate greenery much more even though I've always been a city girl at heart, thanks to my dear Erwin who loves nature and lots (and I mean lots) of thick, lush vegetation (gulps)!! And thanks to these generous designers, I now have quite a few lovely green items in my wardrobe too:-

Mini-Lookbook: Gem Frocks

Hiya Glamouristas. I wanted to show you some pics of recent party dresses gifts that are free or $1L which reminded this RL jewelry designer (moi) of 3 vibrant gem tones: blue sapphire, green peridot + red ruby.

For the full "lookbook" that I assembled for these 3 gem-tastic looks (with detailed design descriptions) please click to read and view here (please note that I would have reformatted all of these photos for our blog here but I just didn't have time to do that today, so I thought sharing some images would be better than nothing since some of these deals expire soon).
I wanted to thank all of these designers for their generosity + also wish all of my fellow Glamouristas a very happy holidays. Jewelry love + fashionista kisses to all!

Baby It's Cold Outside

The cold weather outside combined with the warmth of the season makes us all want to be a little closer to the ones we love. Here are some awesome gifts out there for those that would like to generate a little heat of their own.

(SELDOM BLUE) Kira CHRISTMAS LINGERIE GIFT, is one of those little fire starters I am referring to. Rich blood red color and lush details such as the sweet lace trim and sheer lace back on the corset . Also has a bra and panty option as well that is equally volatile. This one will be sure to have him wanting to stand next to your fire!!! Group gift in the subscribo as well as in-world group notices. Here I have it with one of my very fav group gifts out atm :: Exodi :: Sienna - Pretty, Pretty Princess skin in Nuit , not exactly free if you are not in the group it cost $250L but this skin alone is worth that and more, so to many well worth the investment. Another past group gift from Exodi these :: Exodi :: Zbilja Spirit eyes in (Specular). The stark contrast with the light color of these eyes and Darkness of the hair and skin is a very striking combination. Topping it all off with this Exile Tia loose updo in dust and hair flower from the Gurl 6 Season Updo.

Getting toasty in this fun and flirty Marshmallow Xmas set by *Fishy Strawberry* that is a group gift. The satin sheen on it takes this design from basic to luxe. The distinctive symetrical pattern and the classic cut of this set has a undeniable retro vibe to it. This set comes with a few options, 2 different cuts of panties, also optional belt with and without garters, and 2 choices in stockings. Available in the Subscribo. You will be a vision of the classic sophistication of Christmas past. Also adding to the classic feel of this look the Estelle la femme - Skin by LeLutka, part of the crazy good holiday give away at Le.Look. Here is the deal, they have put together an awesome avi comprised of things from the vendors at Le.Look, each day a new part of the avi will be made available for you to collect as well as the past ones. Super great stuff such as this skin as well as hair from Maitreya and other top notch stuff. There are both Male and Female Avi's available so get the men folk down there. The final touches to this look is the Ingenue ~ Torch Song Updo in Merlot (past gift from hair fair) and *Sin Skins* Intense Ocean/Obsidian Eyes (blue) (10L)

Now that the fire is roaring BlackLace brings the hotness with a set of great gifts that will have Santa stopping by for more than the milk and cookies.

First up Belle - Limited Edition Silver set, it is BlackLace's contribution to the Candy Cane Hunt that is on now. The whole thing is based on a red hot lace bra and panty set. The brocade like lace on the panties almost seems to have a snowflake pattern and the peek-a boo lace pattern on the bra adds an air of sophistication to this sexy little set. The optional jewel green corset has a rich texture with the feel of raw silk to it. The over sized silver closures down the front and the classic boning on this corset are some examples of the meticulous attention to detail that is signature for BlackLace lingerie. Available with a few options including full corset or garter belt, both with and without garters and the green fishnet stockings with backseam are the perfect finishing touch .This Serenity Mistletoe & Wine skin by Heartsick, with its sweet pouty lips coated by sheer red gloss and the heavily lined eyes with just a touch of green almost seems like it was made for this set. This skin is part of the POE2 Express Yourself hunt ( running until Dec 3oth) at Burning Chrome, comes in several skin tones with freckles and cleavage options. Wrapping this look up like a pretty bow on a gift, this Holly & The Ivy necklace by Aurora Borealis Jewelry was an advent gift at Ivalde. Cost $250L to join this group and have to be in the group to get the daily advent gifts and other specials. Past advents gifts are out for sale under the tree in the store for $25L. This necklace has great holly leaf and berry accents on the chain with adorable ivy charm, it has been a staple in my holiday wardrobe. lastly the No extension hair in smoky gold is group gift from *noju* and Lustrous Aurum (large) eyes are past group gift from Shine.

Last and quite possibly least this ~Blacklace~ Naughty Little Stocking gift set. This set features red lace high cut panties , cupless bra, and matching stockings all adorned with tiny green bows, sure to keep the fire going long into the night. Even comes with sweet BlackLace bear. The heat from this set will have Santa converting that stocking full of naughty girl coal into diamonds. Here with the Elf-Happy Holidays group gift skin from Curio that I am sure you have been seeing all over the blogs, rare gift from one of the best skin makers in sl comes in several skintones, shown here in Acorn. The lush red pouty lips that have a sweet smile like quality to them and the soft flushed look on the face are a couple of the things I really like about this skin. These Tragic Eyes in Starry Night happens to be a past gift from Curio. Topping off this look Hey Jude III in Black Bean by .:[ Tiny Bird ]:. past gift but available for sale in the shop, is a great updo that will lend itself to alot in your wardrobe.

These are just a few of the great gifts available out there at this time. Be sure to get them while they are hot. Also on behalf of all of us at Freebie Fashionista we wish you all the best of the season!!!
