Bettie’s got your cupcake!

This weekend seems to be all about the quickie posts for me, because here is another. Well, it’s only a quickie because you only have 2 days left to grab all the goodies from our very own FabFree Birthday Cupcake hunt, and I am showing you a few things you may be missing out on if you haven’t already finished this super easy hunt.

pinup1

The 2 gifts I am showing you are from 1-800-Bettie’s, and Asteria Creations. First up is this lovely vintage-feel gown from 1-800-Bettie’s.  The *1-800-B*Fishtail Gown in Plain Pink is one for all you non-mesh lovers! It is all system layers, with one of the best fitting system layer skirts I have worn in a long time! It also comes with a Tango applier for the top. I just love the way the ruffles on the bottom of the dress sweep the ground, and you wanna know a secret? I’m not wearing any shoes with this dress, and no-one would ever know. As long as you all don’t tell, of course :)

The second gift I have on is from Asteria Creations, and is a lovely, fresh-faced skin with pale pink lips and eyeshadow, with a hint of yellow on the upper eyelids. The *Asteria Creations – Myia Skin – Sahpe PALE, comes with its own shape, which I thought would be fun to show you beside a shot with my own shape. I am on the left, and the shape included is on the right, and I will admit, I am a touch self-conscious about how far my ears stick out with a slick, pulled back hairstyle, and the other shape really makes it obvious! LOL. The eyebrows on this skin are a touch paler than what I am showing, as I just had to try out the brow out makeup, I showed you before HERE, again.

So, I will tell you, to get the skin gift, you are going to have to head over to the Asteria Creations main store, which is located HERE, as there was a tiny snafu in placement :) Don’t worry though, I think it is worth the trip, and it was still pretty easy to find :) The 1-800-Bettie’s gift though, is located at the FabFree HQ, along with so many other goodies. Just in case you haven’t seen it yet, here is the link to the Official Hunt Page, with preview pics of all the prizes, as well as links to prizes that we blogger’s have shown off. You only have until the 16th to get these gifts, so you better get over there right now! Seriously, right this second, well, ok, maybe finish reading my post, and then fly as fast as you can. LOL.

OK lovlies, that is all I have for the moment, so I am going to take my leave. Until next time, TTFN! *waves*

Date Night with Bettie’s

Date Night BW

After a long week of work work work, I decided to take myself out on a little date. I also wanted to share with you all a few finds for both the ladies and the gents! So I got myself all dolled up, dusted off, and dressed up my male alter-ego Diamos and took myself out for a little ballroom dancing! All in all, I had a good time. More to the point, recently a Fab Free friend passed on some info about this great group gift male skin at a shop called Curves. As we all know by now, I’m a skin addict, so male or not, I checked it out. To my pleasant surprise there were male AND female gifts! SCORE! I also decided on a whim to check out 1-800-Bettie’s. I love the retro, rockabilly, cool style of the clothing there, and as usual, I found more than I imagined. Right now they have several gifts/discounted items out, that are just too good to pass up. I picked up the adorable dress Pru is wearing, and the fully mesh suit on Diamos. With good-looking new skins and sexy new clothes, how could I not go out on the town?!

Just Call 1-800-Bettie’s!

bettyYeah.. maybe you shouldn’t call that number in RL..  I dunno what it is, but in SL if you call on them you’ll find a ton of classy and sexy vintage fashions.

Fabfree reader, Angie left a comment on one of the other Vintage Fair posts here and suggested I check out 1-800-Bettie’s at the Vintage Fair, mentioning that they have a dollarbie that is really nice, so I toodled on over there to have a peek!  The dotty Swing Dress shown above is the dollarbie you can pick up and you will get it in both a black and blue version!

All these dots had me adding circles and these Encircled Earrings that Maya sent me to pick up at Amorous went with the dress perfectly!

Betty2Bouncing back to 1-800-Bettie’s @ The Vintage Fair, they not only have the dollarbie, but are also featuring the vintage fashions below (and this isn’t even all of them!) for just 10L in several colour choices.

1-800-Bettie’s

Have you been to 1-800-Bettie’s1-800-Bettie’s has vintage and retro clothing for men and women.  The best part is everything in the store is L$10 or less!  So here’s a few things I picked up to show you.

The Shimmer Swirls Dresses are L$10 each and come in berries, gold, mermaid, and pewter colors.  The chic hat and rolled hair is the perfect touch for any vintage look.  The hat hair is also L$10 at 1-800-Bettie’s.  The Fishtail gown was another must have for my inventory.  This gown also comes in a variety of colors.

With summer approaching a nice Onesie bathing suit is a must have for any vintage girl.  The swimsuit also includes the bathing cap with four hair colors to choose from.

I also picked up the tweed vintage swing coat and Shimmy hair for only L$10 each at 1-800-Bettie’s.

Also join the sub-o at 1-800-Bettie’s for the teal Cocktail Hour dress and earrings.  This is just a few of the items you can find at 1-800-Bettie’s.  Be sure to drag your male friends over because there is a section for the guys too.  *Maybe Carson will show us some of the male items later*
