Ashmoot Entrance Hello and Happy Friday Fab Free’rs! This week’s edition of Fab Free Designer Friday feature designer is Ashmoot. Ashmoot has been part of the Second Life shopping experience for several years, and I can honestly say I’ve never personally been disappointed in anything I’ve purchased there. The shop is a great place to find a little bit of everything from quality mesh clothing to hairstyles. Their unique clothing style is timeless and it spans from casual to formal, and includes shoes, accessories, and lingerie. There’s also a full section of menswear with equal variety. As you can see in the photo above, there is some information in the entry way about associated groups and events. Once inside, if you’re looking for the menswear, head to the left, group gifts are just to the right.
Ashmoot GiftsThe Ashmoot group is FREE to join, and there are several FREE goup gifts for the men as well as the ladies. In the group gift area is also where you’ll find the exclusive Fab Free group gift. Astrid showed off this FREE gift off in her post “Feeling Mouthy“.  There’s also a table with a few gifts that don’t require any groups, and they cost one or two lindens each. As one of those few and far between stores with something genuinely for everyone, Ashmoot is the perfect spot for some retail therapy. Happy shopping Fab Free!

There’s Going To Be a Heat Wave

A Hundred Reasons

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  I’m popping in with a quick post about a fabulous deal waiting for you at The Wash Springtacious Cart Sale, which runs until April 12th.  After seeing Carson’s post {HERE} and Love’s post {HERE}, Ripley and I decided to mosey on over to The Wash to see if we could uncover some budget-friendly fashion finds to share with our wonderful readers.  Sure enough, at the first stall we checked out, we found a darling mini dress.

It’s Rather Hot Around Here…

For only 10L, you can scoop up this fuchsia, floral frock from One Hundred’s cart.  With subtle slits that offer a tantalizing glimpse of thigh, and spaghetti straps that leave my skin free to soak up some rays of sun, the Heatwave dress is a sexy little number that is sure to become a summer favorite of mine.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Belleza Venus, Isis and Freya, Maitreya, and Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Heatwave bow (silly me, I didn’t notice the bow until after I snapped the picture)

There are so many budget-friendly fabulous finds at the Cart Wash just waiting to be discovered.  Ripley and I are going to continue our stroll around the sim, and search for more treasures to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Any Time, Any Place, Any Beach

GheeWash
Hey there Fabulous Readers!  It’s Friday, and I call it “Take the day off and head to the beach day!”.  Anyone else with me?  I suppose I can’t really actually take the day off, but I can virtually go there on my lunch break and live vicariously through my avatar. What do you think?  A visit to Spain perhaps?  I have heard their beaches are lovely!

See The Ghee, Feel The Shine

It was all inspired by this great little dress you can find at The Wash’s Springtacious Cart Sale by Ghee!  There you will find the Leather & Net Micro Mini for just 10L each in 10 eye-catching shades.  They are advertising it as a clubbing dress, however I don’t do a lot of that in Second Life and really liked the idea of using it as beachwear :).  If you are feeling modest like I was today, you can pick up Ghee’s Essential 10pk of Thongs (omega applier) also at The Wash Cart Sale, priced at 50L.

Size Availability & Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya & Isis
  • TMP

Wrap it Up with a Bow

Wrap it Up with a Bow 1

Feeling lucky

I was feeling lucky, and I happened to stop by The Little Bat because it’s a place I can try my luck when I think a lucky streak has hit. It has 4 Lucky Letter boards, two Midnight Madness boards and a Lucky Guess game that will all let you win fabulous Gothic style clothing for free, no group required. I managed to round up a lot of goodies, but my favorite was this free Heather Top in purple with its black bow and flared sleeves. It came in all the standard sizes and a good quality alpha layer. It was well worth waiting for my lucky letter!

Checking out Ostara’s Altar Hunt

I ran across a little Hunt that I couldn’t resist. There are 10 Ostara’s Eggs hidden about on the Ostara’s Altar Faire right now among the booths that are on display (lots of great sale items in the booths). Each egg is only 5L when you find it and contains a quality gift from a great creator. My personal favorite item matched my look and my sweater and was a gift from Oubliette — a pair of Pastel Goth Chucks. These shoes are non-rigged mesh and should fit just about any foot type. I only had to do a little bit of editing to get them to fit my Maitreya feet. I feel certain they would fit Slink and TMP feet as well.

The other gifts were just as nice, and this Hunt lasts until April 16, so you have some time to stop by and wander around the little faire to see what you can see. I’d recommend the shopping there as well!

You Fill Me Up

Brandy's Boutique

Running on empty…

I’ve been riding up and down the streets of The Wash looking for deals that I nearly ran out of gas. Lucky for me there is a fueling station on the sim. I’m topping off my tank before I get back out there and find more great deals at The Wash Cart Sale. I am impressed at the selection for guys this round. It makes my heart sing and my linden wallet a little lighter, but only just a little…

Loaded for Leather…

I picked up the Ernie Leather Jacket Outfit for just $10L at the Brandy’s Boutique cart. This mesh outfit is just one piece, right down to the boots. I accented the look with the TopGun Glasses, a FREE group gift from A&D Clothing. Now, it’s time to get back out there and fight the lag crowds for more great deals.

Beachcomber

Beach Comber

Floating  away…

Walking along the beach gives me time to reflect and for just a little while, to clear my mind from the “noise” of the events happening around me. It can be very calming to be alone with just my thoughts and to listen to the ocean waves, the breeze, and the occasional bird song. The smell of the salt water and water droplets on my skin make me feel relaxed, just like a sailboat floating along the currents…

When I’m feeling blue…

I’ve been told that blue is my best color because it matches my eyes, so today I found another Cart Sale find at Wash. I picked up both the Free Bird Casual Tee and the Striped Tailored Shorts for just $10L each at the Dark Water Designs cart. The tee also includes a texture HUD for different colors and each color goes will with the pants. I’m also wearing the Worn Denim All Star Sneakers, a gift from Black Label Menswear to the Menstuff Group. The MenStuff group does have a joining fee of $50L.

The Springtacious Cart Sale at The Wash continues through April 12th.

Let the Rain Kiss You

spring showers

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I got caught out in a spring shower while exploring the One Caress sim, but fortunately, it was a warm, gentle sprinkle.  While the pupster splashed merrily in the watery world, I tilted my chin upward, and enjoyed the kiss of rain drops.

A Sweetheart of a Deal

My strapless fuschia mini dress is a free gift at Xtravagance.  I love the piping along the bodice, the way it hugs my curves, and the heart-dotted leather with a subtle sheen.  A variety of textures on the frock provide just the right amount of visual interest.  Since the package includes appliers for numerous mesh bodies, plus mesh for classic avatars, you’re sure to find just the right fit!  Best of all, the Carmele dress is completely free, with no group required.  Simply teleport to Xtravagance, click the sign, and pay a whopping zero lindens to add this saucy number to your inventory.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Isis, Venus Ebody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Seeking Sunshine After the Rain

Not long after I snapped this picture, my playful pup bounded toward me, plowed a wave of water up over my toes, shook himself thoroughly, and drenched me with a cascade of droplets.   Time to seek out a thirsty towel and some rays before I catch a cold.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Taking the Plunge

Taking the Plunge

Yeah, don’t dare me…

She wanted to go to the beach. Great, I thought, UNTIL… she wanted to sit on her beach chair, talk on the phone, then decide she was going to read her latest “romance” novel. I came out to have fun. I said, “Hey, let’s go for a swim”. She just shook her head at me as she turned another page. “If you don’t come swimming with me , I’m going to throw you in the water” I threatened. She peeked up over her book and said those three words she knows not to say to me… “I.DARE.YOU.” Sorry, babe… you’re getting wet!

John Dee Green…

We found a cute his and her matching look at the John Dee’s Emporium cart at The Wash Cart Sale. She found the  ABRAXAS Crop Top and ABRAXAS Shorts for just $10L each and I decided to match her look with the ABRAXAS Espadrilles and ABRAXAS Shorts also, just $10L each. The Wash Cart Sale continues through April 12th.

This Group Gift has her upside down…

Frimon Store,  has joined our Fabulous Designer Program and has put out a cute Couples gift pose for our FabFree members.
