Down That Red Dirt Road

Down that Red Dirt Road
Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are enjoying the official arrival of summer.  In my part of RL, summer time can be unbearable.  We are broiling under a heat wave with record high temperatures that are leaving me longing for the rural dirt roads and cool green forests of my childhood home.  Since I can’t get out for long in RL, I sure am glad that Ripley and I could take a long stroll down a country lane in SL.

Cute and Casual

After reading Love’s post {HERE} and Carson’s post {HERE} about The Cart Wash Sale, Ripley and I decided to take a look for ourselves, and we discovered the perfect casual outfit at the Finale Couture cart for our trip down memory lane.  For only 10L, I scooped up the complete Lea outfit, which includes my black cami-style top and distressed denim jeans.  One of my pet peeves is having to break in a new pair of jeans, so finding a pair that already have that vintage look, and are comfortably soft is a real plus in my book.  The pale hue of these softly worn trousers contrasts beautifully with the dark satiny texture of my top.  I love the way the top leaves part of my tummy bare to feel the gentle summer breeze.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Cami for Classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL (plus alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh Cami in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Cami for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink
  • Jeans for Slink, Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Lara, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Venus

Back Soon With More Cart Sale Fashions

Ripley and I spotted so many wonderful, budget-friendly Fabulous Finds at The Cart Wash Sale!  We’ll be back soon to share another with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Beach Therapy

Beach Therapy

I can rest anywhere…

I was told to take it easy but wasn’t told to stay home. So, I’m hitting the beach to relax and enjoy the view. From here, I can watch the waves, the boats the birds and the occasional bunny that passes by. 🙂 Today, I’m wearing more 10L finds from The Wash Cart Sale. As I passed the Emerald Couture cart, the Men’s Teal Tank Top and the  Turtles Beach Trunks  caught my eye.  At just 10L each I couldn’t pass them up.  Another Cart Sale find is the Sky Blue Summer Slip Ons from Roped Passions. I’m all about inexpensive footwear and there are several styles to choose from for just 10L each.

Tiar a new one…

I’m also wearing the latest Male FabFree group gift from Tiar. David’s Necklace is FREE to our FabFree members. All you have to do to pick up this gift is,you will need to have your Fabulously Free in SL inworld group tag activated (It’s free to join!).  To join the group, copy and past the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and click the link in local chat – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .

Lounging in Style…

Getting comfy can sometimes be a chore in itself. I was lucky enough to come across the Cushioned Poolside Lounger and the Poolside Umbrella for just 10L each at the EC Designs cart at The Wash. The lounger comes with many poses to find that comfy spot you’ve been seeking. Soaking up the sun never felt so good.

Happy Summer

Snapshot_003
Hey there Fabulouses!  Look no further than the Sage display at The Wash Cart Sale if you are in the market for a new swim suit!

For Just 10 Little Lindens…

You can pick up the Sage Poppy Base Set as shown on my avatar that includes the bikini top and bottom as well as the sexy sheer cover-up.  Each piece comes in XS-L mesh sizing so finding a size to fit your avatar with little body alterations shouldn’t be a problem.  The poppy print is just adorable and screamed out to me as my own real life garden poppies have just popped up to say “happy summer”!  Included in the folder is a giant HUD that allows for 20 different colours, allowing you to mix and match all three pieces if you like.

Kiss Me Maybe

Free Kisses Maybe_002

I was exploring The Wash sim after doing my shopping… checking out the carnival and I found a kissing booth and couldn’t resist checking it out. The pose puts you in position inside with your hands sort of over your mouth as if to say “no kisses today!” which I found amusing, but fitting because I was wearing a cute pair of “Kiss me” hawt pants from Roped Passion’s that had other ideas in mind!

Check it out!

You’ll want these hawt pants for yourself. I’ve included a picture of the front and the back, just so you can see how cute they are! I may not be handing out kisses at the kissing booth… but these hawt pants have their own ideas! And they were only 10L at the Roped Passion’s Cart at the Cart Wash Sale!

6 Pants Choices:

  • All you can eat Hawt Pants
  • Binge Watching Hawt Pants
  • In Case of Emergency Hawt Pants
  • Kiss This Hawt Pants (shown)
  • Slippery When Wet Hawt Pants
  • Spank Itself Hawt Pants

Sizes available for each:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Add a splash of color!

I wanted to add some color (and Pride) to my outfit and stopped by the Luminesse Cart to pick up the rainbow bracelets you see in my pictures. These too are only 10L and are resizeable too! I think they are a perfect addition to my outfit and highlight something that is important to me, so I was happy to find them at the Luminesse cart among the other pretty baubles! Pick up your Pride and show it off today! Of course if you just like rainbows that works too 😉

Just a Canimal

Just a Canimal
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone has been having a good week so far. I am super stoked about sharing the current group gift at Canimal with you. I had another one of those “I must have that” moments when I saw the ad for it. The Cannimal gift is this blouse and bodysuit combo. So many style genres come to mind with this FREE Canimal group gift, which is partly why I love it. This outfit/top is one piece, and includes a color change hud that lets you choose the color of the bodysuit, blouse, collar, and bow separately. It comes in a single mesh size, but it fit my Maitreya Lara body perfectly. The Canimal group is FREE to join, just wear the group tag and click the gift vendor to get your gift.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

On Down the Line

Ocho Tango

All my bags are packed and reedy to go…

… in my dreams. I’d love to be able to take a trip, but it doesn’t seem to be in the cards right now. At least in Second Life, I can go to whatever destination a care to choose with a simple click of the mouse. Today I’m taking a train ride to wherever the tracks lead me. I had a layover at the Ocho Tango Club and found by joining the group I could get this Men’s Mesh Dress Outfit for FREE. The outfit includes a shirt and pants in classic XS-XL sizes, a hat and shoes. There are several FREE gifts on the table for members, both male and female. Be sure to check them all out.

My train is boarding, I need to scoot on down the rails. Later!

Gently Down The Stream

TheWashTiar
The Wash Cart Sale is underway and there are tons and tons of 10L fabulous finds!  Today I am gently floating down the stream in three items I picked up at the Tiar display.

Tiar Leeas Top – 10L!!

The Leeas Top by Tiar comes in mesh body specific sizes for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus, as well as TMP.  Included is a 6 texture option HUD so you can match it up with whatever bottoms you decide to wear with it!

Tiar Sexy Shorts – 10L!!

You won’t need to go far to find some great shorts to go with the Leeas Top…  The Tiar Sexy Shorts are also available at The Wash Cart Sale for 10L.  These hot shorts come in mesh body specific sizes for Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus, as well as TMP.  I am wearing a denim floral print, but it also offers a camouflage option via an included HUD.

Tiar Woman Keds – 10L!!

Who doesn’t need a pair of basic sneakers?  These are keepers!  for just 10L you can pick up the Woman Keds (resize), and they include a HUD for 10 different prints and solids.  They don’t say exactly which feet they work with, however I am wearing my Maitreya Lara Feet and they fit with no adjusting.  I imagine they would work with most feet as it includes a resize opton.

Traveler’s Heart

Traveler's Heart

Wanderlust, beads, a banjo, a tambourine, tarot cards, and perhaps a crystal ball… A wagon, velvet and lace and layered skirts, poet shirts and dancing under the evening stars. If you just like the feel of traveler clothing, or if you are in the mood for a roleplay outfit to spice up your closet, this classic “traveler inspired” shirt and skirt with matching jewelry might just be the ticket you are looking for.

All in one place…

Shoenique Designs has evolved over the years. I remember when it was just a place to buy a unique pair of shoes. Now you can also get unique clothing and jewelry as well. I picked up this gypsy inspired skirt and poet shirt for free as an SLF & Offers gift on the gift wall. Just don your free SLF & Offers group tag and touch the gift board and this outfit is yours.

All the great sizes you need…

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya, Slink, Belleza

Matching jewelry too!

Right next to the beautiful outfit I picked up, was another generous free SLF & Offers gift from Shoenique Designs that matched the gypsy outfit just perfectly. The free Billy Jewelry Collection in Red Jasper includes a necklace, earrings (both shown) and a bracelet (not shown). I didn’t manage to get a close up to show you just how beautiful and detailed these pieces are (they match the skirt with all its colors just wonderfully), but if you click the Flickr picture, you can zoom in to see the jewelry at a close up to get a close look for yourself!

Happy (free) Shopping, Everyone!

Coffee Contemplations

Coffee Contemplation

Summer Cabin Fever…

Who would have thought I’d be going stir crazy in my own house in the middle of summer?  I don’t count my numerous travels to appointments as relaxing outside time, but I am finding excuses to venture out just for a change of scenery. I’ve been enjoying my morning coffee on the deck with my Kindle in hand just to feel the sun on my face and hear the morning birds sing.  I’ve been taking evening walks at a local walking path, and even dragging walking the dog when I’m up to it. All these things give me a sense of normalcy.

Take a walk and shop….

I took a walk (virtually speaking) down to The Wash for the Cart Sale. There are many items on display for guys with nothing over 10L.  It officially doesn’t start until tomorrow, but most vendors have booths up and running.  I picked out and outfit from the selection of men’s clothing to choose from. I always make sure I stop at the Dark Water Designs cart for some inexpensive clothing pieces. This round of the Cart Sale has three different layered shirt prints and I chose the Palm Leaf Layered Shirt. I matched it with the Faded Tan Cargo Shorts, each just 10L. I also looked through the selection of shoes at Poeme. Although the fitted sneakers are for women, there are a few patterns that could be considered unisex and using the unrigged version, I made it easily fit my man sized feet. I chose the Happy Blue Canvas Chucks, also just 10L.

Rest and catch my breath…

After all that walking I needed to sit down. Lucky for me I was near the Park Place Home Decor cart and found a Bright Director’s Chair, another 10L find. This chair comes with many sits for both males and females. It also has animations for drinking coffee or wine and even provides the drinks. I’ll just sit here for a bit and watch the passersby while i catch my breath. I hope to see you down at The Wash Cart Sale that (offically) begins tomorrow and runs through July 5th.

Somewhere Off the Beaten Path

Off the Beaten Path 1

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Some days, you need to take a detour off the beaten path, and that’s just what Ripley and I did this morning.  Not only did we discover a cool, green forest sprinkled with wildflowers, we also picked up a budget-friendly outfit to share with you.

Just a Dollar?  You Bet!

For only one little Linden dollar, I scooped up the C’est la Vie maxi skirt and bra top outfit at Mirus Designs.   There are two options available at the shop: the blue that I chose to wear today, and a black version, both priced at only 1L.  The texture of the fabric is well done, with a subtle sheen, and realistic folds.  The line separating the folds in my picture was caused by my pose; it doesn’t appear when you wear the outfit in normal use.  The skirt features a waist panel with decorative stitching, and a white string tied in a bow.  I really like the way the skirt drapes down to my toes.  The outfit includes a coordinating bra top with white stitching, and a halter style neckline with narrow straps.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Venus

Here’s a front view so you can see how beautifully the two pieces blend together to create this playful, casual summer outfit.

Off the Beaten Path 2

Ripley and I plan to do a lot more exploring today.  We’ll be back soon with another Fabulous Find to share with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
