Street Goddess

Writing on the Wall_001

I can read the writing on the wall… and it’s telling me that today is a latex day. Thanks to ArisAris I can have some latex goodness and be a cool goddess on the street, complete with sunglasses for just 2 Linden total! All I needed to do was visit the Aloha Fair for their special gifts 😉

Versatility is stylish.

ArisAris put out two very special gifts at the Aloha Fair and I couldn’t pass up either of them. I picked up the Goddess Jumpsuit and felt like the jumpsuit’s namesake. This jumpsuit comes in a multitude of sizes to fit mesh bodies, and with all the color change options is very versatile.

You’ll be getting a hud to change the main part of the jumpsuit between one of five colors (black, gold, pink, white or red) and each color has a solid option, a mesh torso option, or a torso option that has embroidered flowers. Additionally, you can change the color of the belt, and the pearl on the belt. So many choices! I’ve included the vendor advertisement below to give you a sneak peek at the additional textures available to you on this amazing outfit.

Can you believe you get all this just for visiting the ArisAris booth and buying the gift beach ball for just 1L?

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L with Alphas
  • TMP
  • Flow
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Add a pair.

The ArisAris booth had a second gift set out that I felt matched the feel of the Goddess Jumpsuit so I picked it up too… and donned this fantastic pair of mesh Divina sunglasses. They are easily adjustable to fit your face and I moved them down just a bit on my nose to get the right look. They have that movie star glamour to them and for just 1L are well worth the price!

Enjoy the Aloha Fair while it is going on. There are lots of amazing gifts and deals to be had!

The Cross I Bare

Lilac
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I’m just going to come right out and say that Stix has just provided me with my new favorite fantasy toned skin. No contest. I love the lavender shade, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that this gorgeous purple hued skin is a FREE group gift at Stix. Needless to say once I was wearing the skin I was instantly inspired to create this cool demoness look.

Yuki as Syx

This fabulously generous group gift at Stix includes classic system layers with options for cleavage/nipples, nether regions,  and brows. Additionally there is a full set of appliers. While the body and head appliers are Omega based, they are specifically done to fit each of the different body types (Slink Pysique, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya, Belleza) rather than using one texture for all. The Stix group is FREE to join at this time. So if you aren’t already a PixyStix group member, no need to worry you can still get this amazing gift for FREE since there is not a group join fee all you need is group space!

Appliers Included: All in One Hud – Omega Appliers (Head & Body), Mesh Ear Appliers (Bentbox, Logo, Soul Uni), Heavy Cleavage Applier

Hunting at the Goth Garage Sale

I had some help creating this cool look thanks to some hunt items I picked up at the Goth Garage Sale. The Goth Garage Sale Hunt items are just 5 lindens each, and you’ll be hunting little black cats with glowing yellow eyes. Most of them are fairly easy to find. The little yellow-eyed cats are hidden/perched around the Goth Garage Sale venue, some are even hidden in the shops. The Goth Garage Sale event and Hunt end August 8th.

This Hair is Sn@tched

This sleek long hairstyle and horns set are the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Sn@tch. I was pleasantly surprised to see a hairstyle from Sn@tch. The 5 linden hunt prize includes the hairstyle Drucilla with a “Goths” color hud that has 16 goth inspired hair-color options. You’ll also get the horns which can be worn separately. Horns are set up with resize scripts.

The Cross I Bare

The heavy cross Pru is wearing is another Goth Garage Sale Hunt item, this one from Psycho Barbie. The necklace fits well, is sizable, and includes a color change hud. The color hud lets you pick between black, gold, light gold, and silver. You can hunt down your 5 linden copy of the Psycho Barbie Croix necklace at the Goth Garage Sale.
Lilac 4
I went ahead and added a second photo, not just because I had so much fun with this look, I wanted to give a closer look at the third Goth Garage Sale Hunt item I used for this look. Also, it gives you a great close-up of the Yuki as Syx group gift skin from Stix, and the beautiful texture of the horns included in the Sn@tch Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize. Plus, I love the way she looks with this mad face!

Black Pearls

This detailed facial piercing set is the Goth Garage Sale Hunt prize by Black Pearls, and probably my personal favorite of the hunt items I collected. Like all the hunt prizes, this one from Black Pearls is just 5 lindens. First I want to point out that the blades along the forehead are color change, just click one and you’ll get a drop down menu with tons of color options. With just a minor adjustment to the position, the set fit my mesh head perfectly.

Here are the details, Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Happy Birthday, AnaLee!

Gypsy Girl

Hello Fabulouses!  I’ve been so busy with preparing for my return to work in RL that I almost missed this Fabulous Find.  Thank goodness the pupster was paying attention to the group notices popping up on my screen! When I saw the group gift at Lamu, I was so excited to discover that it contained a complete outfit from head to toe.

Gypsy Soul

AnaLee Balut, the talented designer at ALB Dream Fashion, is celebrating her birthday month by sharing a special, free treat with members of the Lamu Group – a gorgeous frock with a decidedly bohemian vibe.  The Nur Dress features a halter-style top, which leaves your midriff bare above a a flowing maxi skirt.  The soft colors and decorative motif lend the outfit a romantic appeal.  I love the added detail of the ties which wrap around the waist!  This gift includes the emerald armlets, rose-gold bangles, and high heels in my picture, as well as a green diamond necklace, a hat, glittering glasses, and a flexi attachment for the skirt, which I opted not to wear for my photo shoot.  I was quite pleased with the carefree, gypsy feel of my finished look.  Best of all, the Lamu Group is completely free to join!  Happy Birthday to you, AnaLee!  Thank you for such a lovely gift!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Slipping into something comfortable…

Criss Cross

Slipping into something comfortable…

I stopped by 1 Hundred the other day and was pleasantly surprised at all the available gifts. I wanted to show them all to you! But in the end I finally decided on this free little black lingerie number that shows off all the curves and is aptly called “Curvy Bitch Undies”. It comes in system layers as well as universal omega appliers (I just love applier clothing) and is a great sexy little number. It is the current free gift under the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News Group.

I did have to do some playing to get it work, but I did the playing so you won’t have to! At first I was a little frustrated, as I thought that the underwear band wasn’t working. Never fear! Apply the underwear as “underwear” then apply the underwear also as a “bra” again as “underwear”. Then put on the bra applier and apply it as a “clothing” top. Voila! Your lingerie will show up properly.

An added touch.

Swank is going on and has out some nice little gifts at some of the booths. Chop Zuey is gifting this sexy belly chain, which I paired with my lingerie. Aptly named “Sea Mist,” this belly chain comes in a sort of opalized finish, that is pretty and yet not overdone. It resizes to fit and you can adjust it to fit your hips. Just buy it for 0L at the Chop Zuey booth at Swank Events.

True Blue

True Blue

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are here with a quick post to share another of our hunt finds with you from the Around the Grid Hunt.  This hunt runs until September 30th, and hunt gifts cost 1L if you search for the small hunt object concealed in the shop, or 25L if you purchase the prizes from the hunt sign in the store.  The small hot air balloon-shaped hunt object at Gidget’s Style contained my lovely blue and gold sleeveless frock.  With an all-over floral print and an asymmetrical hemline, the Nina Mesh Dress is ideal for the long summer days of July and August.  Although it’s not designed specifically for a mesh body, by adjusting my alpha layer, I was able to get a perfect fit.  I could feature wearing this dress in RL as well as in SL!

Sizes Included:

  • XXS
  • XS
  • X
  • M
  • L
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars

I hope you are enjoying the dog days of summer – I know Ripley and I are cherishing the time we have to wander carefree through the grid.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

From Head to Toe

The Seamstress 1

It’s Tuesday! And that means 25L specials! I made away like a bandit today and put together a roleplay look that you won’t want to miss out on. Some of you who don’t roleplay may like the looks of these deals too!

From Head to Toe!

I made my first stop at Calico where they have out two hairstyles for just 25L per color pack (or 150L for the fatpack). I chose the pretty “Daphne” style you see in my picture. It’s a fully mesh style, but also includes an optional flexi attachment (not shown) if you want some added softness. For just 25L per pack, this style is a steal!

A dress, a dress!

EvelineInTheBox never ceases to amaze me with pretty dresses for my wardrobe. This dress is perfect for roleplay (I’ve set myself up as a seamstress here in this scene, but this dress is really perfect for so many things), but this dress would also work great for a casual date or every day wear as well. Best yet for your 25L you also get a color change hud and 10 color choices, including brown, pink, moss, lavender, charcoal, red, sky (shown), black, olive, and salmon.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

The Seamstress 2

A free gift too

While I was at EvelineInTheBox, I took the opportunity to pick up their free Group gift! The group is free to join, and they currently have out these pretty leather and star anklets. These are made to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza, as well as there is a classic size with a resize script in the box.

One more stop.

I finished my wandering at On a Lark where I picked up a set of sandals. These flats are just 25L per color (or 150 for the fatpack of colors which includes all the colors plus all the metal textures too). I’m showing off the blue one’s here with the silver straps. For just 25L these Flat Sandals by On a Lark are a steal and come in sizes to fit Maitreya or Slink feet.

Carefree Summer Stroll

Wandering Around the Grid

Happy Mid-Week, Fabulouses!  It was time for another walk down a country lane for the pupster and I.  Today, we have a fabulous 1L hunt gift to share with you from the Around the Grid hunt, and I hope you like this complete outfit as much as I do!

Summer Freedom

Rip and I have just a small amount of summer freedom left to enjoy, so it’s kind of ironic that the outfit we bring you today is called “Liberata.”  It features a criss-cross strapped crop top and sleek capris.  The black fabric has a gorgeous sheen and realistic folded texture.  One of the things I love about gifts from Brii Underground is that they are generally complete outfits, and Liberata is no exception.  My bracelets, top, pants, and wedges are all included in the prize package, as well as sunglasses, a necklace, and a makeup layer for Catwa Jessica, which I opted not to wear for my photo.  Right out of the box, you get a full outfit that will set you up from head to toe for just one little Linden dollar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for top and pants for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
