GIA Style Card // Diva on a Dime

Complete look: L$95. Thanks to the plethora of high quality designer freebies and cheapies out there, you don’t have to be the SL equivalent of Elizabeth Taylor to look good. Update group and in-store freebies, hunts, discerning newbie areas and store sales can hold all the style elements that a frugal fashionista may need to stock her wardrobe.

Movements like the hugely popular Fifty Linden Fridays coordinated by OMGWTF Barbecue, have further established support for affordable, quality products.

Thank you to all the designers who contribute to Fifty Linden Fridays, the Gnubie Store, hunts, sales and who offer regular update group gifts!

Hitting the Beach: Day 4 of 4 – Montego Bay

Last stop on our four-day grid-wide voyage. Strawberry and I decided to make the finale fun and celebratory. To boogie down we decided to get grassroots and natural, donning gypsy-esque beachwear before refreshing ourselves at the seaside bar and dropping booty on the beach.  In flowing wrap skirts  and dreaded locks we’ll spend the last day of our road trip drinking Red Stripe (a Shirley Temple or ginger beer for Berry, though) and listening to the dub reggae tunes blaring from the speakers at the bar with Berry using every excuse and opportunity to wiggle her booty.

Thanks for coming along!
