Uptown Girl

Uptown Girl

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to meet a friend for coffee at this shop in the City of Templemore.  With my companion running late, I had plenty of time to snap a photo of my latest outfit to share with you all.

Sleek and Elegant

My entire outfit today, with the exception of the boots and cell phone, are free gifts from Rowne.  The Alla Crepe Top and Xinyu Trousers brought to mind a sophisticated, uptown girl look (tune).  I like the high waist of the pants, and the short cropped top, which left one arm bare while the opposite was encased in a full-length sleeve.  I thought it made for an interesting visual contrast.  The pants emphasized my long, slender figure, and at first, I had a hard time finding footwear that would work with them.  My slink feet and shoes poked through far above the hemline of the trousers, and I couldn’t adjust where they attached on my legs.  Uh-oh…

An Uh-Oh Followed by a Sigh of Relief

After adjusting my hover height to be slightly above the ground, I dug down deep in my inventory, and found some old-style boots that I could adjust and slide down to the bottom of the cuffs of the trousers.  It worked like a charm, and I was quite pleased with the outcome. Unfortunately, when I went to include the landmarks for my post, I discovered that the boots in my full-body shot were no longer available.  I did, however, find an alternate pair from Blackburns (shown in the close up picture below) that worked just as well, and these were only 29L on the Marketplace!  Phew!

An Entire Outfit, But That’s Not All…

In addition to the pantsuit, Rowne also has the Jane Cat Eye Sunglasses, Bon Bon Earrings, and Buckett bag set out as free gifts for group members.  I felt they all coordinated beautifully, so I combined them in one look.  The end result:  classy sophistication!  Although the group has a 350L join fee, the numerous gifts available balance out the initial expense.

What’s Included in All the Gifts:  

  • Alla Crepe Crop Top and Xinyu Crepe Trousers fit for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique
  • Buckett Bag (with two pose options)
  • Cat Eye Sunglasses in Onyx (they were originally on top of my head; I edited them to be on my face)
  • PW BonBon earrings in Lilac (shown) and Hunter

Here’s a close up of the Blackburn boots.  They’re cute, aren’t they?

Well, that’s a wrap!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Grown Up Easter Dress

Spring Lace
Hello Fab Free’rs! Can you believe we are already almost halfway through April?! This is the time of year I always want to add cute dresses and pretty girlish things to my wardrobe. Maybe it’s a left over impulse from years of Easter dresses as a little girl. BYRNE‘s April group gift does feel a little bit like a pretty Easter dress, a grown-up Easter dress. It is pretty, and sweet with lace and flowers, just like an Easter dress should be. I especially like the optional neck scarf. To get your FREE copy of this lovely lace dress, just join the BYRNE group. The group is FREE to join. You can then check the past notices, or head over to the BYRNE main location.  The gift includes standard mesh sizes and matching alphas. Also, at the shop you can purchase past group gifts if you missed them when they were released. Most of the previous gifts are priced at 50 or 60 lindens.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

 I am the Warrior

I am the Warrior

On the prowl…

Out here, looking for your next meal isn’t as simple as going to the grocery store or hitting the drive-thru. Its kill or be killed, eat or be eaten. With just my strength and my trusty spear (that I found in my inventory from long, long ago), I’m on the hunt for something to sustain me for several days.  I’m looking for the big kill…

Today’s barely there outfit is a group gift from Tamiron Forge. The Jungle Savage Loin Cloth is a free gift to group members and the group is just 10L to join.

I’ve spotted my prey. It’s standing right under McDonald’s golden arches…

Beauty Rest

morning after_001

Up at midnight.

I swore I heard something outside the window. Maybe it’s just the branches tap tap tapping on the window pane. It howled up a storm last night and I didn’t sleep as well as I would have hoped. Thankfully, I slept beautifully in my new nighties, even if I didn’t get in as many beauty winks as I would have liked.

A fatpack for 1L

This nightie is just one of a fatpack of nighties you can get as a group gift at Bella Moda for 1L. Yes, you heard me right. Join the group for 1L and pick up the group gift free. You’ll get the full fatpack of this gorgeous Intimissi Lace Nighties & Panties set (the nightie and panties are two separate pieces).

Colors included: Black, Blue, Blush, Red, Teal (shown), and Violet.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

I don’t see anything at the window after all, so I’m back to my beauty rest. Night, night everyone!
