Ooh la la, Paris, c’est manifique!

It’s been a little while since I was last in Paris, so I thought that today would be a good day to take a stroll around the city. Of course, with Paris being the fashion capital of the world, I needed to look my best. Lucky for me, I had a few great group gifts that made me totally look the part.

redparis1

My bright and summery dress came from a hot tip from Love, about this cute dress being offered as a group gift at CandyMetal. I ran my little booty over there, and knew I had to have it, I mean…just look at that red! The Peggy Summer Dress is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes. The CandyMetal group is free to join, so once you join, and slap your tag on, this beauty is yours, for free, after touching the poster. I just love the sweet bow on the chest.

Speaking of bows, the killer heels I am wearing are also adorned with bows :) The .:ECCO:. Velize 2 in White are a SLF&O’s group gift. These are made for SLink high feet, and there is a second version in the folder that comes without bows, just in case you don’t like bows…but how could you not? The SLF&O’s group is free to join, and if you have your tag on, the shoes are free for you! If you love these shoes, you will be happy to know that there is a second pair available for free for members of our very own Fabulously Free in SL group, which is also free to join (though I am sure most of you reading this blog are already in it). 2 free pairs of sexy heels, just for being in groups you are probably already a part of? *does a happy dance*

*Edit – So sorry folks, when I originally posted this, I thought there was a version for standard AV feet as well, but I am mistaken, so I have removed the part where I said that. Sorry for any inconvenience.

OK, while I loved the look of the shoes and dress alone, I felt, trying to be very fashion conscious, that I needed an accessory. I hopped onto the Marketplace and typed in ‘Clutch’. I know, this cute little purse is not a clutch purse, but that’s ok, the bright colours totally worked with my dress, and best of all? It was only L$1! Score! The My Heart Bag – Dollarbie is from the Marketplace store of Things I Like, and there really is an awful lot of things I like there. You get 2 purses in the folder, each with a slightly different holding pose. Both are set to attach to your right hand, I just did a little adjustment to put it in my left hand so as to work with my pose.

I confess, while I am wandering around Paris, it is actually Paris in 1900. So, despite being fashionable for our time period, I stick out a little. Luckily, landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, and the Arc D’Triumphe are timeless. I highly suggest you come take a look around here if you have never been.

Mes bons amis, il est temps de se dire au revoir, which is french for, My good friends, it is time to say goodbye. Well, at least until I find some other wonderful thing I have to show you all, which will be in no time at all! So until then, c’est tout pour le moment, which is about the same as TTFN *waves*

Country Girl

Country Girl

Hello Fab Free’ers! I’ve missed you! For the past week I’ve been out of town, getting a little work done and visiting family that lives too far away for me to visit often. I have to say it was a nice trip, but I’m really glad to be home. One thing that always amazes me about going back to small towns like the one I live in now and the one my family has always lived in, somehow, it always feels homey. It doesn’t matter how long I am away, how big the city I live in is, I’m always a small town country girl on the inside.

That said, the city girl in me loves the new SLF&O gifts from CandyMetal and Shoenique! The mesh dress from CandyMetal has a chic sexy feel to it. The dress is fully mesh, and I have to say both the pattern and the shading of the dress texture is lovely. I think it could easily go from a work environment, to an early dinner date. The dress also includes a matching mesh hat. The hat is very cute on, even though I chose to re-position it so that I could be holding it in my pictures. The Shoenique SLF&O gift couldn’t have been more perfect, these pointed-toe shoes are a real statement with the dress from CandyMetal. Also, just as a side note, these shoes do not require Slink feet. Now that I have my outfit all picked out, remember that little ramble I went on about taking the girl out of the country but not the country out of the girl? Well, that is why I chose this serene out-door setting for my main photo. I feel like a country girl all dressed up in her city-girl finest!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Anchors Away

Hello everyone! Its a beautiful day outside.. the perfect weather to go down to the beach and laze around in the sands. Of course we have to look fabulous while doing so and this outfit certainly fits the bill!

After hearing of a new group gift from CandyMetal to celebrate their reopening, I was on the look out for a suitable pair of heels to match up. When as if by magic or some divine intervention, a notice fell from the heavens to say that Hucci had sent out a gorgeous new subscriber gift of a pair of Peep Toe Heels. Thanking my lucky stars I high tailed it over there to get them and by the good graces they matched my outfit!

All I needed was some accessories to help complete the outfit and I knew exactly where to go! Yummy has some cute little sailor themed jewellery and accessories for this round of Collabor88 and these were just ideal to add the finishing touches.

Duh! It’s Time To Visit CandyMetal

Snapshot_007

Good morning Fabulouses ;)  Have you checked out the group gifts at CandyMetal yet?  The group is free to join, and after you are a member, you can pick up two group gifts.  I’m displaying one of them for you today, but you’ll have to head into the shop to see the other!  The CandyMetal mesh Tunic Dress is available as a free group gift and comes with a handy hud that allows for several texture changes.

The boots I am wearing today are the Essentail Fall Boots for The Autumn Effect Hunt at Duh!, and are perfect for this time of year ;)  Pru showed you a few prizes from The Autumn Effect Hunt the other day (here).  This is a super hunt with a ton of really great and free prizes, so make sure you check out their blog for more information.

While I was at The Duh! store looking for the hunt icon, I picked up the Big Satchel in brown to complete my look.  This bag has been shown before by Serena and myself, but I thought I’d mention it again in case it was new to anyone.  It is available for 20L in several colours!

A Crash Course in Free Gifts!

Snapshot_003

Yesterday, I spent the afternoon at the Intense Track on the Rain Cloud Sim trying to learn how to drive in SL…  Somehow it is harder in SL, than it is in RL.  As you can see it didn’t end well…  I crashed my car, broke the track (Sorry Swatchz!), and ran over a noob :O … but it was super cool with all the dust flying around.  The sim itself is really, quite something to see, whether you are into racing, photography or are just looking for a new place to chill and meet new people.

About my outfit…  You can pick up the CandyMetal Duna Boho Mesh Hippie Dress by activating your free inworld Acid Lily group tag, this week only at the Acid Lily Fashion Gallery where nothing is over 70L!   These great Denim Mesh Boots are the latest group gift at Gabriel (also free to join).    It’s a little hard to see the texture of the boots in this photo, but they are a deep realistic blue denim texture.

ps.  I’m not giving up – I’m going to eventually make it all the way around without smacking into something!

Finding Sun In The Acid Lily Garden

Snapshot_002 I needed a little break from the cold and snow and ice and “general winter yuck”, so I headed over to the beautiful little garden over at the new Acid Lily location for some sunshine.  Of course while I was there, I put together an outfit.. because that’s what I do! lol…

Acid Lily has a couple of cute group gifts this week for their inworld group members (free to join).  One of them is the  red F*ck You top made by CandyMetal.  It comes with the big boobie appliers, but I don’t have those, so you’ll just have to use your imaginations. Acid Lily is also offering the matching mesh Mini Skirt – Tartan at the special price of 55L, and the Women’s Biker Boots for just 70L.
Snapshot_001

My freckled pale skin with cheery red lips is a #6 dollarbie skin at My Ugly Dorothy.  They just keep adding them – YAY /!

I’ll be showing the other Acid Lily gift soon ;)

Cute Winter Things I Like

Snapshot_002Hi again!  I have  a hodgepodge of cute holiday treats to share with you tonight :)  They are from all over the grid, so I hope my post isn’t too confusing about where to find this stuff!  The sweet and innocent looking mesh Flurry Dress can be found at Loovus Dzevavor hidden in the Peace On Earth Hunt 5 icon which is a globe.

My Christmas Kitty Hat is made by CandyMetal and is the latest free group gift at Acid Lily.  It also comes with a Christmas Lady shoulder cape, but it was interfering with the mesh dress I am showing today.  Perhaps I’ll find something to wear it with soon to show you.  It would be perfect to wear with a non-mesh top.  Go check it out – so cute!  The group is free to join, and there are still a ton of other gifts available sitting around the fashion gallery rooms.

The Even.flow Mrs. Santa Clause Mittens (free gift) and Things I Love Snowman Bag (1L) are both available at the Winter Wishes Market along with tons of other gifts under 10L!  These boots aren’t free, but they are worth a mention because they are a must have in your inventory this winter!    These Multi-Change Uggs are made by Things I Like and they come with a hud that allows you to change the texture to several different shades / prints making them perfectly matched to any outfit!  These are featured at the Winter Wishes Market for 99L.

IzziesnordicleggingsThese cozy looking nordic leggings are Izzie’s group gift for December and they are available in four prints.  The group is 250L to join, but there are always generous monthly gifts!

Whew…  are you still with me?  I have one more thing to share…  The Christmas Scene you see is actually a background box that is perfect for photographers or bloggers in SL.  You can pick this up at Katink for the Peace On Earth Hunt 5 – just find the hidden globe!

Eye CandyMetal

Snapshot_003 My friend Mik, who is quite a nice piece of eye candy was kind enough to hold still for a few minutes on the PnP First Date pose I found for free on marketplace so I could snap pictures of him in the Men’s August Group Gift from CandyMetal!  It includes the mesh board shorts and matching towel over his shoulder.
Snapshot_004

The Women’s August Group Gift at CandyMetal includes the two piece vintage bathing suit and also the mesh cover-up with the adorable anchor on the front.  The group is just 25L to join.

Do You Remember Cassettes?

Snapshot_002

This Cassette Necklace from Pepper that is currently set out as a 5L Dollarbie had me cracking up, remembering when my son found an old cassette of mine and had no idea what it was! I explained to him about how the tape always came loose  and we had to wind it back up – sometimes tape it back together, and how we had to actually wait to rewind it – ha ha ha…  The good ole days!

CandyMetal has their July Group Gift set out that includes the mesh top and zebra skirt in the beautiful muted shades of green/brown.  The group is 25L to join, but they always have great treats for members, so the 25L won’t hurt much!  I went to Duh! in search of some shoes to wear with my new outfit, and found that they have their Dolly Pumps in Brown set out as a totally wearable demo for free!
