Le Fashion Whore should become a regular stop for freebie fashionistas!
You can join their store group for free, which allows you to win some lovely items of clothing from their 18 lucky boards. The letters turn over relatively quickly, and there is usually a small crowd gathered, so your chances of picking up something for free, without waiting a long time, are pretty good:
They also have a group gifts wall:
But the main reason I am telling you about Le Fashion Whore is that, if you act quickly, you can pick up not one, but two gift cards for the store!
But, if you come down to the store today or tomorrow only, and click on the gift box at the birthday display next to the group gifts wall, you can pick up a second gift card worth L$1,990!
In a message posted on Saturday to her store group, the proprietor LeeLee says:
It’s my 30th Birthday tomorrow!! OMG!
I am being showered with love and I want to show my Fashionistas some!
For today, tomorrow & Monday ONLY you can get a gift card loaded with 1990L (My birth year!)
Remember to wear your group tags and as before it is one card per avatar!!
Enjoy my birthday LOL!
Peace&&Love Lee Lee
So, you get a total of L$2,990 in store credit to buy any merchandise in the store! Between the two gift cards, I picked up thirteen fatpacks of dresses, gowns, shirts, sweaters, and jumpsuits forabsolutely free! The gift cards even work on the items on the sale wall, opposite the lucky boards.
UPDATE Jan. 20th, 2020: Well, LeeLee is learning why you shouldn’t give away L$2,990 in free store credit all at once! The sim where her store is located has been like this all day (and the highest was 81 avatars at one point!):
So, you can expect it to be crazy like this for the rest of the day, too. The sim has now been reset several times today, and LeeLee posted:
Due to the overload and people not listening we’ve shut the parcel down until Caspervend has a chance to breathe
The Store will be up again ASAP!
Thanks for your patience and sorry for the inconvenience
Even though the Christmas/Advent season is now over, there are still a couple of stores that are being very generous with their group gifts to customers! Did you know that there are two stores in Second Life, where you can pick up a L$1,000 gift card as a free group gift—and that you can join their store groups for free? That’s free money, people!
The first store is one where I routinely ransacked their Advent calendar over the holidays, called Le Fashion Whore. Join the Le Fashion Whore group for free (there are 4 white group join panels shown in the picture below) and simply click on the gift-wrapped box on the small table indicated below with the red arrow, to get your free gift card:
The L$1,000 gift card attaches to the lower-right hand corner of your screen, and works with any store vendor. (If you wish, you can rezz the gift card to the ground on any land with rezz rights, and then it becomes transferable to another avatar!)
The gift card for Le Fashion Whore should enable you to pick up four regular-priced women’s outfits. It’s a super deal you should not pass up!
The second store to offer a L$1,000 gift card is Blossom, a store conveniently located right next door, which sells mostly women’s footwear and a few outfits.
I found it difficult to find the store group searching under Groups in Search (it’s spelled .::* BloSSoM *::., and I just hate it when stores do that), but luckily there is also a black-bordered, light-blue group join panel attached to the side of the reception desk (see below)!
Join the Blossom group (but make sure it’s the right one, there appear to be several called “Blossom”!) and then click on the opened gift box on the reception desk as shown by the red arrow:
The Blossom gift card should be enough for you to get at least four pair of regular-priced shoes (and even more, if you happen to pick some more inexpensively-priced items, as I did). And I assume that you can also rezz that gift card to make it transferable, as well.
Oh, and apparently both these gift cards are available until January 31st, 2020, so you’ve got the rest of this month to pick them up. The gift cards are not time limited, so you can use them anytime you like.
UPDATE Jan. 11th, 2020: I wanted to show you what you can get for your gift cards, putting together this delightful retro 1950s outfit!
The Betty dress from Le Fashion Whore comes with a HUD with twelve different patterns for both the top and skirt, plus twelve coordinating colours for the belt—very versatile! And the Minnie pumps from Blossom come in six different colours as shown. This entire outfit was free, using the two L$1,000 gift cards, and there’s much more to see and buy in both stores.
The Le Fashion Whore gift card is only available until Jan. 31st, 2020, and I assume the same is true for the Blossom one, so hurry down!
The Second Life womenswear store Arcane Spellcaster has moved to a brand new sim, and to celebrate, their group is free to join this week, and you can pick up a free L$500 gift card to use on any items from their store!
Just teleport here, click on the group join sign to the right, and then click on the big gift card sign to the left:
Once you have received the gift card, you must wear it in order to use it. It will appear in a corner of your SL viewer. Then go over to the Arcane Spellcaster store (at the other end of the sim), and click on a vendor in their store. Select the Buy button, then select Gift Card. You will see a small picture of the item appear on the gift card, with a Buy Now button. Click on it, and the item will be delivered to your inventory!
Arcane Spellcaster is perhaps best known for its large collection of “Bento-enabled” dresses (which have skirts that look like they are moving in a breeze, taking advantage of some extra hind limb bones in the Bento extensions to the base SL avatar). Just look for the big Bento room at the back of the store, where you can find all those items:
There’s also a room off to the left as you enter, with a couple of free group gifts and a couple of lucky chairs:
Head upstairs and you’ll find some real bargains, such as this Zaida mesh minidress, which comes with optional flexiprim attachments to turn it into a full-skirted ballgown. It comes in blue, black, and pink, for only L$175 each:
With your L$500 gift card, you can pick up two colours for free!
Arcane Spellcaster tends to have original mesh designs which I haven’t seen anywhere else on the grid, such as this stylish belted Delia top, which comes with a HUD to change the colour of the shirt to 20 different shades, and the belt to 10 different colours, all for just L$275:
According to the group notices for the Arcane Spellcaster group, the free group join and free gift card are only for one week, so hurry down!
