Just a Girl and Her Horse

A Girl and Her Horse
Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued to work our way through the Country Girl Hunt at Brii Underground, and we discovered the stylish Fabiola outfit.  Just like the Keli dress I showed {HERE} yesterday, this hunt gift will deck you out from head to toe…all for only 1 little Linden dollar.  I love the combination of turquoise and brown, especially on the embroidered vest, which offers a sexy peek at the skin on my midriff.  Snug fitting jean shorts emphasize the length of my legs and hug every curve, while the dangling strands of the belt offer a playful bit of movement.  The feathered cowgirl hat coordinates perfectly with the colors of the vest, and offers a welcome respite from the rays of the sun.  Polished brown boots with silver adornments finish off the look.  This rancher is ready to lead her horse to water….. in style!

What’s Included:

  • Fabiola Vest in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Fabiola Shorts in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layers for classic avatars
  • Maitreya Applier for Tights and Gloves (I left my hands bare)
  • Omega Applier for Tights and Gloves
  • Slink Applier for Tights and Gloves
  • Omega Applier for Fabiola Make Up – Catwa Head (not shown)
  • Make Up Tattoo layer for classic avatars
  • Fabiola Hat
  • Fabiola Scarf (not shown)
  • Fabiola Boots
  • Fabiola Belt
  • Optional Light (not shown)

All ten of the dollarbie gifts in this hunt are up for grabs until May 31st, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing of your own.  With Ripley’s talented nose, and the hints available by clicking the hunt sign in the Brii Underground store, locating all the rearing horses really didn’t take too long at all.  Since each package contains a complete outfit, you will come away with a versatile wardrobe perfect for a day on the farm, or a day of casual shopping.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

How Do I Find Dollarbies on Marketplace?

Hey there Fabulous Readers! Sometimes I find myself scanning the dollarbies on marketplace when I have a few spare minutes, because I think at times these goodies get missed in the shuffle of all of the feeds and group news and such.  I find it’s a great way to get in a little harmless pixel shopping when I can’t get inworld too!  I just fill up my cart and when I get inworld, I check out so that nothing is a miss delivery.

How to find dollarbies on marketplace:

First of all… Be careful when you are marketplace shopping, especially for things like hair and skin.  Unfortunately there are a lot of copybotters out there, and Marketplace is their jam.  It is very important that we support the original content maker, and not the person trying to benefit from someone else’s work.

There may be a better way to do this, and if anyone has any positive suggestions or tricks on how to narrow down the search, please feel free to comment, but what I do is this…

  1. Open up Second Life Marketplace.
  2. Click on the category you are wanting to explore on the left hand side.  In my case usually it’s Apparel -> Womens
  3. Scroll down to the price category on the left hand side and enter min – 1  x max – 10 and click “refine search”.

This will bring up all items that are priced in your category of choice, priced between 1-10L.  Unfortunately it does include a lot of demos, but not as many as if you select a price category of 0-10!

To make things a little easier to view, I also do the following:

  • Select items per page 96, so I don’t have to “next page” so much.
  • Select sort by Age: Newest First, which will bring up items that have been newly listed first.
  • ETA: Entering “NOT demo” into the search box will remove the demos from your listing – Tip courtesy of Brinlea

Additionally, typing words like “promo”, “gift”, and “free” into the search box will also narrow your quest for dollarbies down!

My Marketplace score of the day:

My favourite marketplace dollarbie find for today is the Eyk Tunic Dress in red by Sun*Love as shown on my avatar.   This summer chic design could be worn as a short dress as I have done, or as a blouse.  Either way you decide to wear it, you’ll be stylin!  At just 5 little lindens, it comes in mesh sizes XXS-L and includes an alpha layer.
