Hello there, Fab Free! Today, as I took Ripley for his morning stroll, we passed by a house with a Christmas tree all decked out in the front window. Ripley paused and gazed at it with a wistful, hopeful expression in his eyes. “OK pal, we’ll go pick out our tree tonight,” I told him as I scratched behind his ears. All the way home, he pranced, his tail wagging joyously. I guess even pups get excited during the holiday season!
The other day, as Rip and I sought out our next Fabulous Find to share, we decided to pop on over to Hottest Fashion. In our very first post on Fab Free [HERE], we highlighted a cute, summery knotted top from the store, and I figured we should take a peek and see if the gift had been updated to a cooler-weather outfit. Pleasantly surprised, I tapped the prize board for the Mesh Body Friends Group (free to join), and scooped up this free long-sleeved Winter Dress. As an added bonus……..it was in my favorite color….another score for Team Ripley! This frock features a full-cut skirt accompanied by a loosely fitted bodice, and can be worn with or without the included black woolen scarf. Since Rip and I planned to delve into the woods to track down our Christmas tree, I draped it around my neck to ward off the winter chill.

Life is Better in Boots
You can’t ferret out a tree in the forest wearing heels (now THAT would make an interesting post, don’t you think?), so I slipped into some winter-friendly footwear. I discovered my high, zipped leather boots while searching the Marketplace for good deals. Currently, Vlad Blackburn is offering these Color Zip Over Knee Boots for only 49L in his Marketplace store. Featuring high heels, and creamy leather with soft folds, this footwear package includes a color HUD packed with a rainbow of options. You can alter the hue of the body, soles, and zipper separately. They are constructed of fitted, rigged mesh, so no special feet are required. To confirm they will work with your avatar, you can always test the fit with the free demo offered here. With my tootsies and legs snuggled up in warmth, Rip and I started up Old Bessie (our truck) and began the Great Tree Hunt.
Over at the Beautiful 4 Seasons sim, we accomplished our mission, and met some new friends along the way. Aren’t these lovey-dovey owls just the sweetest looking couple? My heart just melted when I saw them perched on Ole Bess. I posed next to the pair, and snapped a quick picture before journeying home with Ripley to set up our tree. Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!
