Happy Saturday, wonderful readers! This morning, Ripley and I started our weekend the way we always do… reading the Fabulously Free in SL blog. While I was admiring Loki’s sensuous photo here, Ripley insistently nosed the Group Gift Listing link in the corner of the Fab Free web page. Of course, with my pooch’s gift for finding fashion, I immediately followed his lead and discovered not one, but two, new, free, fabulous gifts for Fab Free group members that, in my mind, coordinate with each other spectacularly.
With a few quick teleports and clicks, I became the proud new owner of Posh Tale’s free, elegant Margot gown and Tiffany Designs‘ free back necklace. The opulent sheen of the double stranded pearls contrasts beautifully with the subtle shimmer of the floor length, formal gown. From the front, the necklace appears to be a traditional pearl strand, but from behind, it drapes beautifully and emphasizes the line of your back. I love the way the dress leaves my shoulders bare to feel the caress of the moonlight. The gown includes a HUD that allows you to select one of 16 colors, and comes in 5 sizes for classic avatars. Although there was no applier for mesh bodies, I was able to wear the gown just fine by adjusting the alpha on my Maitreya Lara body. After adding simple pearl studs from Caroline’s jewelry, and slipping on some black heels (more on these shoes in my blog post coming tomorrow), I accompanied Ripley to the outdoor ballroom at the Invictus sim.
While the night breeze ruffled Ripley’s fur, we wandered around the grounds of this beautifully decorated sim, which is inspired by the poem of the same name by William Ernest Henley. It’s a Linden Endowment for the Arts exhibit and is well worth exploring. I discovered the Invictus sim by reading this blog post by Ziki Questi. It has more in depth information if you are interested, and is enjoyable to read. Periodically, falling stars blazed a trail across the purple and mauve streaked sky while we walked around. Legend has it that if you wish upon a shooting star, your wish will come true. Here’s hoping that all your wishes come true this weekend. Until tomorrow, happy shopping!
