Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Tranquil Lavender

In Pru’s post [HERE], it would seem she was conjuring up her “inner fierceness”, while today –  I was seeking just the opposite in my search of silence, and tranquility.  I think I have found that sense of repose in my visit to The Summer Trace Sim.  While I  tiptoed through the warm  powdery sand, my new cotton frock blew freely in the salty sea air as the cooling ocean waves lapped gently at my feet.  I managed to collect a few fancy shells on the shore, and tucked them into my pocket. No idea what I will do with them… they were just pretty :).  If this isn’t serenity…  I don’t know what is.

The Cotton Frock

I was glad to have found this darling Edi Dress in Lavender by Belle Epoque as a free gift at The Vintage Fair as it was perfect for my Second Life outing today!  You can find this right at Belle Epoque’s display, priced at 0L with no need to join the group.  This dress is specifically designed for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, however it may work with others too.  Give it a try – it’s free afterall!

Fiercely Cute

Fiercely Plaid
Well Hellooo. It’s a new day and I am glad of it. Yesterday I was feeling a little blue and thankfully Love was there to feed me brownies and listen to me while I talked through all that has been bothering me recently. I am forever thankful for the wonderful women in my life. Today I woke up with a renewed sense of self and a brighter outlook. Sometimes all you need is to talk it out, and the brownies helped too! You may or may not have noticed, I keep returning to this stance in my photos lately. I think it’s fierce, and I wanted to remind myself and everyone that we are all fiercely capable amazing human beings.

If I had to pick a pattern for the look of fierce, my go-to would be red plaid. This seriously cute dress is a FREE group gift from Rir Life. Even with the undeniably feminine cut of this simple dress, I feel strong and feminine at the same time. It is the sort of dress you could wear with boots, heels, or sandals and still look good. Heck go barefoot! The gift includes the mesh dress in fitmesh sizes as well as specific sizes for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies. To get this adorable FREE gift, head over to Rir Life and join their FREE group. While wearing the Rir Life group tag, just click the gift box on the counter under the vendor photo.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Top Shelf


Something worth celebrating.

Paisley Daisy has a beautiful January group gift out for the ladies… a purple celebration suit! And I couldn’t pass it up. This one piece dress suit in all the standard sizes (with an excellent alpha layer if you’re still using your system body) is pure magic. It is highly detailed and the texture is amazing, with a shimmer and glimmer that is simply unique and beautiful. The Paisley Daisy group fee is 100L, but you’ll get amazing monthly group gifts just like this one to add to your wardrobe, making it well worth the Linden in my opinion.

What’s on the shelf?

I decided to do a little decorating this morning and was pleased to make away with a free shelf from Cwtch! They have out their Calon Lan Shelf & Decor (it’s all one piece) free for FabFree group members. Just wear your FabFree group tag and pick up this lovely gift.

The shelf is only 4 prim total and includes everything you see in the picture. My head is hiding the two of the lovely picture frames (there are 3 total) that allow you to add your own textures/pictures to them just by dragging and dropping pictures from your inventory to the frame. It was easy peasy! This lovely shelf will be a welcome (free) addition to your home!

Stuck in the Middle

Some Guard Bear!

Hello Fabulouses!  Here I am TRYING to relax in the winter sunshine (finally) with a steaming mug of coffee, and I am stuck smack-dab in the center of an adolescent contest of wills between a “guard” bear and a stubborn dog (yes I mean YOU, Ripley!).  It all started with a protective glare from Rip when this polar bear lumbered up to us.  Baloo the bear then stuck his tongue out at the Pupster, and the goofy face competition began…

At Least I am Decked out in Style

I seem to be favoring sweaters lately, and today’s top is no exception.  My chunky-knitted poncho is a limited time offer for Fifty5 Thursdays at Cristal’s Creations.  I love the bright splash of teal across the black background.  With its high collar and long sleeves, I’m sure to stay toasty warm even in the midst of icy glances, and even a possible snow ball fight between two young males.  The sweater is very well made with gorgeous detailing in the ribbed texture of the fabric, and gleaming buttons.  Fifty5 Thursday sales take place every week beginning on Thursdays, and run through Sunday, with many merchants choosing to leave the sale items up for sale all week long.  You can get a peek at the items available this week {HERE}.  The Elegant Black Poncho A package at Cristal’s Creations includes my poncho shown here as well as skinny blue jeans, which I opted not to wear.  Also set out is The Elegant Black Poncho B which is the same as my outfit, except the stripes are a rusty brown tone.  At only 55L for a complete outfit, it’s a great bargain.  I’m not sure how long it will be available past Sunday, so if you are interested, don’t delay in popping over to Cristal’s Creations.

A Girl With an Attitude in Black Leather Pants

Well, if I wasn’t trapped in the center of two posturing goofballs, I probably wouldn’t have my exasperated attitude, but I would definitely still have my stunning leather pants created for the Maitreya mesh body.  Packed with details such as zippered pockets and a glossy sheen to the leather, these pants also come with a 5-color texture change HUD to coordinate with whatever top you choose.  Although I wouldn’t wear these on a warm day, they are perfect for frosty weather. Best of all, you can add them to your inventory for only 25L if you visit Premier’s Marketplace store.  It’s a great deal for a quality pair of color-change leather pants!

Calm Down Boys…..There Are Enough Ripley-Snacks for Everyone

Well, dear readers, before this teen-age situation gets out of hand, I’d better assure both Baloo and the Pup that there really are enough Ripley-snacks to go around.  Perhaps I can even convince them that (shock of all shocks) they can even be friends.  Wish me luck!  Happy shopping to you!
