Christmas Eve Will Find Me

Christmas Eve Hello Fab Free! I don’t know about you but all this holiday stuff has put me in the mood for some fun holiday parties. I want to get dressed up, and go out with friends to celebrate the season. Half the fun of holiday parties is finding something great to wear!  I know it’s a little early, but I like to be prepared, otherwise I spend way too long getting ready last minute. I’ve found the perfect dress for a dressy Christmas Eve Party. Christmas Eve will be here before we know it, and I’m ready! Now I just need a party invitation! hahaha

Christmas Eve Outfit

Party or no party I just love the soft rose-gold color to this beautiful dress. The dress is a current group gift at American Bazaar. This fully mesh completely FREE gift comes in several size options including fits for specific mesh bodies. That’s right, I said FREE. The American Bazaar group is FREE to join at this time and there’s a swanky looking gift out for the gents as well.

Feelin’ fine in my pretty new dress, I had to have the perfect pair of shoes to go with it. You know how it is, nothing in my inventory could possibly work. 😛 I’m glad I decided on new shoes because I found these gorgeous heels on the Marketplace from a shop called Sheba. They are currently priced at 39 lindens, and they come with a great color change hud so you can match them to just about any outfit. Also, these great shoes are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. The Marketplace listing does say that the 39 linden price is a “promo” price, so don’t hesitate to grab these fast!

Just like in real life, an elegant new hairstyle was in order the second I put the dress on. It just so happens that Blues Hair has this quirky up-do available at the current round of The Dressing Room for just 70  lindens. I love that it’s pretty enough to be worn with my party dress, but still unique enough to show some personality. At just 70 lindens per color pack, the style is a steal of a deal.

To help keep the cool December air at bay, I added this fun fur boa from Kaithleen’s to my ensemble. This great alternative or even addition to a coat is the Peace on Earth Hunt prize at Kaithleen’s. The POE hunt is a dollarbie hunt, so you’ll get this pretty accessory for just 1 linden, once you’ve found it! The boa includes a color change hud as well, making it a really versatile piece. *Update 12/19/15 – I made a big whoops and credited the boa to the wrong hunt. You will find this boa at Kaithleen’s and it is their Into The Woods Hunt gift, NOT the POE hunt gift. The gift is 2 lindens. I sincerely apologize for the mistake! Happy Hunting!! 

The finishing touch, jewelry! Last but never least, I found a gorgeous rhinestone necklace with a little bit of vintage flair at Krystal. I am a sucker for vintage jewelry, and rhinestones are among my favorites. This delicate necklace is just 50 lindens at the Krystal main location. I found it to the left inside the store, near some gachas. The necklace is in 2 sections, so don’t be alarmed, just wear both. Each part of the necklace can be sized and adjusted as needed.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

From Day to Night

I was doing a little writing for FabFree last night, when someone dropped off a package at the door. You know I couldn’t help but give it a little shake! I never did figure out what was inside… but I sure tried! It was one of those “Wait to Open” kind of things!

But this fun pose is one you don’t have to wait to open… thank goodness! I picked it up from the Eternal Dream Poses advent Calendar for just 10L. If you are in the group its FREE (you can also join the group for 200L and then all 24 advent gifts will be yours FREE as well as many future gifts and offers!).

From Day to Night 1

Once I was done trying to trying to have a premature peek into my giftie, I remembered that I had some fashion finds to share with you. I stopped by Christmas on 34th Street earlier this week and found four piles of presents under four different trees (look in the four corners of the sim!) and put together my usual mix and match look! My go to full get together evening starts out with this classically lined suit by [LaVian&Co] called RedLabel Under the Boardwalk. I love the wide belt and striped lapels. It came in all the standard sizes as well as fitted mesh… and if you look in the picture below you will see that you can also take the jacket off because it includes a stunning Maitreya applier top in black for additional versatility. Can you believe all this was only 10L as a great gift under one of those trees? Score!

My luscious jewelry was another 10L score by Beloved Jewelry. This Mishka Set would be perfect under any gal’s tree! The detailing is fabulous on the necklace and earrings and better yet? Color change! Yes! Can you believe it? And again, for just 10L!

From Day to Night 2

I wasn’t done with my gifts yet though. I also picked up this sexy updo by Analog Dog Hair called Enja. It comes in two parts with the bun on top and the curls around the face that fall over the shoulder just so. For 10L you are getting a full fat pack… that’s hard to beat! And this sexy style is perfect for day or night either one!

I knew I needed something for my feet, so I snatched up these stylish White Satin Stilettos for Slink feet by Lowen, another 10L find under one of those Christmas trees.

My pose in this picture is yet another Eternal Dream Poses advent giftie! Yours again for just 10L or FREE with your 200L group join. (Plus I needed some hot cocoa after all that gift snooping!)

From Day to Night 3

Had you noticed how in my first picture the top under my jacket was white? I just love it when I can mix and match! Though the [LaVian&Co] suit comes with a gorgeous black undertop (shown in my second picture) I also nabbed this trio of lingerie by Blacklace from under one of the trees. For just 10L you get all three colors in the gift box and I found that the white looked especially nice under the Black and white suit.

My pose in the picture above was another 10L gift you can find under one of the trees. Snatch up this sexy set of stands by oOo Studio called Winterkiss. The box includes three poses for Second Life photographers.

So, I packed a lot into that post! But I hope you found something you liked. I’m going to get back to the hot cocoa and snuggle up with some blankets by the fire!
