It’s Sunday fun-day, I hope everyone is able to enjoy the day. I’m still in a daze over the fact that it’s already November. It just doesn’t feel quite like fall yet, and we are already inching toward winter. Maybe that’s why I found myself going with a much more “warm weather” look than I might have otherwise. It’s still so warm outside! That said, I’ll get on with it! I recently came across two subscriber gifts, one from enVOGUE and one from Hucci.
Just a few days ago, enVOGUE released a new subscriber gift named Elissa. This is a lovely center part hairstyle with full fluffy waves that lay perfectly over your shoulders. This generous gift comes in a cool ombre color pack. You’ll find pretty fades in brunettes, blonds, and reds, a few of which even have colored ends for added variety. To get this FREE gift from enVOGUE, simply head over to the main location and join the subscriber. Existing enVOGUE subscribers can find the gift in the subscriber message history.
I love that Hucci often gifts shoes. Shoes always fit! These chunky heels with peep toes and heel cutouts come in sizes to fit Maitreya Lara feet, Belleza feet, and Slink feet. Also, this FREE subscriber gift is a group only version with the zebra pattern we have seen in past gifts from Hucci. Current Hucci subscriber members can use the subscriber system to have this FREE gift redelivered.
Hi there Fabulouses! I hope you are all already a member of the Reign inworld group because they have a lot going on right now in the way of group gifts! If you are not currently a member, now would be a great opportunity to join. The fee is 250L but they have just put out their newly released ANAIYA Boots in a full fatpack of colours as a free group gift in celebration of their third anniversary!
About the Anaiya Boots…
These mid height heeled thigh high boots are beautifully textured, available in 20 realistic colour options. There are three sole colour options as well as an option to switch between leather and suede. I have included their vendor ad below so you can see the detailing close up but don’t be fooled by the fact that they are showing three colours – because there are indeed TWENTY!!
Belleza: Freya, Venus & Isis
Slink: Physique & Hourglass
If you require further convincing to join the group, last I checked there is also the Halloween group gift still available for pick up as well which is sweet pair of black thigh high boots available in three Halloween prints. That’s a whole lot of boots and an opportunity for future offerings and gifts at just 250L!
The Menstuff Hunt runs through November, and promises, as usual, to fill our manly inventories with lots of essential goodies. My first stop was Brocade Tiger, where I picked up this shirt and tie combo that I admit, won me over immediately. I like the unique Paisley design and was especially happy when I noted on the hunt website that it is an exclusive gift for the hunt. The gift is FREE, meaning it will only cost you a bit of hunting time. Once you find that iconic blue t-shirt, just buy the item for 0L.
The tie is an optional affair.
Put a tie on. Or don’t. Versatility is always nice when it comes to clothing options. And when you can find a quality gift that gives you that extra “oomf” in the versatility department, you know you’ve come across a winner. I especially love items that are unique. This gift from Brocade Tiger comes in all the standard sizes and includes its own alpha. In addition, the shirt and tie are separate, so the tie is optional. The shirt has a nicely detailed button down front, so it looks just as good without the mesh tie as it does with it. I think you’ll agree that this is a gift worthy of your Second Life closet.
Ahoy there, Fab Free! My trusty sea dog, Ripley, spotted a Fabulous Find today through his spyglass, and sounded the alarm as he paced the deck of our ship. I followed his pointing nose, and caught sight of what looked to be the arms of a tentacled Kraken reaching above the waves, but it was actually the whimsical Octa dress from .Ecko. While I admired the dress from a distance, Ripley took control of the rudder, and piloted us safely to shore so I could net a Saturday Special Edition outfit to share with our wonderful readers.
This strapless frock is the most recent free gift from .Ecko. for Fabulously Free in SL group members, and features white octopus arms playfully waving across a jet-black background. The gift comes in five standard mesh sizes for classic avatars, but hugged every curve of my Maitreya Lara body after adjusting the alpha layer. It left my shoulders bare to enjoy the caress of gentle ocean breezes as my pup and I continued our sea adventure to scope out the rest of my outfit.
Mesh for Classic avatars: XXS, XS, S, M, L
As we got underway once more, a friendly seagull swooped down bearing welcome news of a brand-new gift from Truth Hawks for Truth VIP Group Members. For a one-time fee of 265L, members will have access to an exclusive monthly hair style, which is scheduled to arrive the first week of each month, and will only be available for one month. In addition, members will be granted early access to sales. Deja, November’s free VIP hairstyle, is a loose, side-swept ponytail complete with the optional wispy bangs I am wearing here, as well as a cuff and side hair which I opted not to add in my picture. This generous gift contains a full fat-pack of all color HUD variations Truth offers! In real life, I often sport a ponytail, and I wish it was as glamorous and elegant looking as this one.
Accessories….The Exclamation Point of an Outfit
In my blog post here, I featured Victoria Gladiator boots from Ben’s Boutique. I discovered today if you join the in-world Ben’s Beauty group, you can receive this free Harmony necklace. It comes complete with a HUD that allows you to choose from 20 different scarf-stone colors and 4 metal textures. I love how this piece of jewelry combines the look of a necklace with the added pop of a scarf, all wrapped up in one versatile piece. I opted to stay with black and silver to coordinate with my dress. Best of all, the Ben’s Beauty group is free to join! Angular bangles from Izzies, and hoop earrings from Phoebe Piercings and More added the final touches of bling.
After slipping on RADEX Mesh Hayal High boots, which I found on the Marketplace for 89L, this pirate seafarer was ready for more adventures on the deep blue ocean with her ever-faithful, bargain-sniffing hound by her side. Until next time, happy shopping!
Happy Sunday, Fab Free – my favorite day of the week! On these deliciously lazy days, Ripley and I venture on long walks, explore Second Life sims we’ve never journeyed to before, and rely on the Pupster’s keen nose to sniff out Fabulous Finds to share with our wonderful readers. Today, Ripley must have felt a bit nostalgic because he tracked down some items with a vintage flair.
A Fetching Floral Frock
I felt like I wrapped myself in romance when I slipped on Sweet E’s New Wrap Dress. It’s hard to believe this gorgeous frock is free, but it is 0L for the Fitmesh Fanatics Group (which is free to join). With its softly hued, floral fabric styled in a figure-hugging, flattering cut, I felt simply elegant. While the hem of this dress fell below my knees, it featured a leg-baring slit that offered freedom of movement, and a glimpse of my thigh…daring enough to be sensual, yet still providing coverage in all the right places. The gift also contained a shimmer skirt attachment, but I didn’t wear it for my picture.
Fitmesh and traditional mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
Give a Girl the Right Shoes and She Can Conquer the World
To accompany this dress in real life, I’d don flat, strappy sandals during the day, then upgrade to a pair of heels to glam it up at night. Since this is SL, and I can walk all day in any shoes my heart desires (yay!), I went all out with Elisa Slink High Heels from the Cremosas Store. These free, open toed, ankle strap heels are a gift for the Teleport Hub Group (10L to join this group) and include a texture-change HUD to coordinate with your clothing. I especially like the silvery embellishments on the front of the shoes.
A simple, double-stranded pearl choker, an antique gold pendant, and heart earrings from League’s Vintage Jewelry Set were the only adornments I chose to add. I’m really pleased with the soft, gentle appeal of the entire ensemble, and I hope you like it, too. Until next Sunday, I wish you many opportunities to chase your dreams…in high heels, of course. 🙂
