Now is the Time….

Good Things Come to Those Who Wait

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  I have quick, time sensitive post to share with you today featuring a free group gift.  The group is free to join only until January 31st, so don’t delay if you would like to scoop up this lovely gift for free.

While Rip and I wandered about SL, a group notice popped up on my screen announcing the latest group gift from MMC Store.  As soon as I opened the texture included in the notice, and had a peek at the Celline dress, I knew she was destined for my inventory.  Quick as a wink, I teleported over to the shop, joined the group, and scooped up Celline, as well as the 5 other group gifts featured on the wall just inside the door.

Little.  Black.  Dress.

Every girl needs a slinky, black dress and this little number is just about as perfect as you can get.  With a daring neckline, sexy cut out, satiny fabric, and darling ties in the back, Celline hugs your curves in all the right places.   Simple enough to wear to work, yet easily accessorized and glammed up for an evening date, this dress is a valuable addition to your SL closet.  The 16-texture HUD included with the gift opens up a wide range of possibilities beyond merely a black dress.  As of January 29th, the group is free to join, and the dress is one of six free group gifts available to members.  As I stated earlier, the free join is for a limited time only, so if you have a hankering for this frock, I’d suggest you pop on over to the MMC Store right away.  After the 31st, the join fee will increase to 50L.  Even at that price, this dress is well worth the fee!

What’s Included

  • Fitted Mesh for Classic Avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for Classic Avatars
  • Appliers for Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Eve (Pulpy, Slim), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), The Mesh Project, and Tonic (Curvy,Fine)
  • Color change HUD packed with 16 textures

That’s it for now, my friends.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Don’t Overthink It

Snapshot_019

Kiss this…

So often, we over think the trivial things… replaying conversations out in our head, looking for that hidden meaning that isn’t there or never intended. Over thinking actions, when the least benign and most obvious answer is usually right. And over thinking our wardrobe seems to be a major problem, especially in Second Life. I’ve always tried to live by the KISS rule, Keep It Simple Stupid (at least when it comes to clothes, I’m an overachieving  over-thinker in other aspects). And hopefully I’ve done that with today’s ensemble.

It all starts with a good foundation…

Normally, my footwear choice is an afterthought to the clothing choices I make. But today’s look began with the shoes. I heard there was a new group gift at PREY. The Men’s Red Deck Shoes is a FREE group gift to members and the PREY group is FREE to join. I have a feeling I’ll be getting some mileage out of these shoes before Valentine’s Day is over.

Spend a little, get a lot….

I try and live as FabFree as possible, but sometimes you have to spend a little to get the most mileage out of your wardrobe. When I was out skateboarding last weekend, I saw the Oscar Mesh Shirt at A&D Clothing. This shirt very much my RL style and thought about buying one shirt ($199L). But after investigating the HUD driven fatpack that comes with 12 shirts and 6 exclusive shirts that are not sold separately, I was sold on the set. It put me back $1299L but now, I have over a half a month’s worth of shirts that I don’t repeat on the colors. It’s all about the versatility…

Mixin’ up the ‘stuff

Since my return, I’ve noticed that free and inexpensive shirts are in abundance, but free pants are sorely lacking. Sometimes you have to mix and match free gifts to achieve the look you’re going for. I picked up the Casual Red Plaid Outfit by 69 Park Ave at the Menstuff Lounge and “borrowed” the pants for this look.  While I was at the Menstuff Lounge, I decided to accessorize with the Heavy Leather Bullet Turquoise Bracelet provided by GLINT. Both these gifts are FREE to members but it does cost $50L to join the group.

So now I’m ready to grab an early burger and beer with the guys and be home in time to surprise her for some Netflix and chill. (I’m on a two beer limit, not repeating New Year’s Eve EVER again).

Fine As A Fox

Snapshot_004Hey there Fabulouses!  Thank goodness it’s the weekend.  It has indeed been a long week and I needed to blow off some steam!  He was out with the boys at some dive bar for burgers, beer and “birdwatching”, while I stayed in for a little quiet time to process the week’s events.  Usually all I need is to sit down with a little chocolate, a pen and a piece of paper to get my head on straight and catch myself up thinking about the events of last week, and the things I need to deal with for the upcoming week.  Sometimes I keep it, other times it needs to be torn up, but it always helps.  Not as much as a good squishy hug though – good thing he came home early!  One squishy hug and I was fine as a fox!  What about last week?  I forget!

Speaking of foxes…

I came across this foxy little top yesterday  in the Fab Chic marketplace store for 2L and thought I’d share the news with you!  This sexy cut cropped tank top shows off an ample enough amount of side boob, however the adorable smart fox on the front of it balances it out.   It comes in several mesh sizes and includes the alpha layer.

Like My Pose?

My pose is called Angel and is a brand new group gift at Entangled Poses.  This group is free to join, but you will have to pay one linden to pick up the gift and it will be refunded.  Perfect for bloggers or photographers!
