A Fine Fall Camp Out

Fine Fall

As y’all may know, I’ve been on ( and off ) the grid for a loooong time now. Hush, now and listen to me ya whippersnappers! *Threatens you with her cane*  ANYWAY, a bunch of things have come and gone in SL. Remember sparkle bling and shoes with heel clompy sounds? Yeah, good riddance. But one thing I haven’t seen in a long time and kinda missed was camping chairs. They used to be everywhere, now, not so much.  So imagine my surprise when I saw a pair of them over at WellMade!

Hello There Camping Chairs

I went to my new new-to-me designer to peruse the lucky boards ( They’re awesome btw) and saw the camping chairs. And one of the prizes was this super cute casual Yumi pullover. I quickly took a seat and 30 minutes later it was mine. Yumi comes with a HUD for eight colors so I bet there’s one that’ll be your favorite.

Good Things Come to Those Who Camp

Good Things Come to Those Who Camp

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Monday!  After all that grocery shopping yesterday in RL, Ripley and I just needed to sit down and contemplate the remainder of our budget.  Luckily for us, we found a comfy spot over at Sweet E’s.  Best of all, after my time of rest and relaxation, I was rewarded with a gorgeous outfit, complete with thigh-high sandal boots.  Now that made my evening!

Stylish Stripes

Although it looks like it might be a one piece dress, the White Stripe Amile Outfit is actually composed of a skirt and top that look fantastic together, but also can be worn separately.  I always find it so versatile when I can mix and match components to create different looks!  The off-the-shoulder top features a ruffled neckline and a hem that falls to your waist (in the picture, the top ends where the solid white section starts).  It’s a perfect summer day shirt.  I love the laced, solid white mid section of the skirt, which allows for a delicious glimpse of your tummy.  A delicate bow tie holds all the lacing in place and sets off the transition back to the coordinating striped panel in the skirt.  The entire outfit hugs your curves beautifully.  To round out the complete outfit, the generous designer also included sexy, thigh high boots, which feature delicate heels and criss-cross straps.  The prize contains sizes for various mesh bodies and can be yours free – all you need to do is invest a small of time while you hang out and relax in a cozy chair.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Until my next post, happy shopping relaxing!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/08/2018 – GeMyles Couture

GeMyles Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve had a Fabulous Friday! Today’s designer Friday post features GeMyles Couture. At this ladies clothing shop you’ll find women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories. You’ll find everything from shoes to dresses at GeMyles. The store has a modern feminine style that blends well with other styles. The circulation desk is right front and center as you enter the store, there you’ll find basic store info. If you head around to the left as you’re browsing through the shop, you’ll run into the wall of group gifts and the camping chairs. In the center of the group gifts and camping chairs is an elegant lounge-like setting where you can park your avatar and use your camera to shop if you like. I do that often in stores since my laptop fights with SL so much!

GeMyles Group Gifts
As you can see there are quite a few group gifts to be had at GeMyles Couture. On this wall you’ll also find a Midnight Madness board with a 50 linden GeMyles gift card as the prize. While I was visiting GeMyles this Midnight Madness board was open to everyone, no group needed. This is where you’ll find the GeMyles group gift. The GeMyles Couture group is free to join at this time. Additionally, you’ll find the GeMyles exclusive gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. The Fab Free group is of course free to join, so don’t forget to wear that Fab Free tag and pick up your free gift. Directly across from the wall of group gifts is where you’ll find 8 camping chairs. Sorry I didn’t snag a photo of the camping chairs. You’ll need your GeMyles group tag for these. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Enjoying Them While They Last

SAKIDEcamplavender
There are still a few hearty flowers holding on in my garden despite all of the silly snow and wind that keeps coming my way prematurely, but I know they won’t be here much longer, so I might as well enjoy them while they last.

Maybe I do like camping!

Last night I stopped in at SAKIDE and found that outside their shop, there is a gazebo filled with camping chairs, lucky boards, group gifts and midnight mania boards.  I camped out and was able to obtain the Adele Outfit and Shoes in Sea Fog for free!  If I recall correctly, it was one hour for the outfit and 45 minutes for the shoes.

The Adele 2pc Outfit comes in XXS-L mesh sizes with an alpha layer and includes a texture change HUD for a few small colour options on the skirt.  The Adele Shoes are designed for Slink High Feet.

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/26/2017 – Tiar

Tiar 1Hello Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the end of the week and that means a new designer post! This weeks featured designer is none other than Tiar. For those in the Gorean role-play/lifestyle communities in Second Life I would consider Tiar among the top shops for male and female Gorean clothing, as well as some Gorean furniture. That said, Tiar also has a wide range of urban clothing for both men and women as well as contemporary furniture. It’s another one of those shops with something for everyone.

Tiar’s Courtyard

I purposefully neglected to do my usual exterior photo for Tiar because there is just so much to see.  If you wander through the store on your own, you’ll quickly find the room with new releases, and re delivery terminals. In this area of Tiar there is a daily sales item for just 60 lindens (see the bottom photo above). The Tiar landing point is a center courtyard with 4 corners. One corner has the general information about associated groups and events, along with several sale items. You’ll notice the little footprint style markers along the ground leading to the sales boards, most of which are 25 or 35 lindens.

Another corner has a few more sales items, a big raffle board, and a large teleport board that will let you easily navigate Tiar’s many departments. You’ll want to use this teleport board to travel to the Midnight Madness area. Additionally, you’ll find Tiar’s gacha yard sale in this cool little courtyard, along with KittyCats for sale. If you collect KittyCats or enjoy hunting through gacha yard sales you won’t want to skip these.

Tiar 2
Once you’ve used the teleporter in the courtyard at Tiar to go to the “Midnight Madness” area, you’ll find yourself in a small room with lots of group only opportunities for FREE items. The Tiar group is FREE to join. There are 3 Midnight Madness boards, 8 Lucky Letter Boards, a Sales Board, and 3 camping chairs. The items on the camping chairs and the Lucky boards all rotate so there are tons of items. One thing I noticed right away is most of the Lucky Letter boards seem to be on a short 3 minute rotation, which is really nice. This room is also where you can pick up the exclusive Fab Free group member gifts. There are two gifts at Tiar for the Fab Free group, one mens and one womens. Carson showed the mens gift in his post “Beach Therapy.” As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. Just wear your group tag to get the gifts from Tiar. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/04/2017 – Monomania

Monomania Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs, Friday may be coming to an end but the weekend is just beginning. With that in mind I highly suggest you take a moment this weekend to visit Monomania. They just so happen the subject of this weeks Designer Friday post! Why should you visit? Well first of all, the shop is very prettily decorated and landscaped, there’s even a lush courtyard type oasis you can enjoy. I always admire when there is great scenery to go along with great shopping! However, a big reason would be the huge number of group gifts and freebies you’ll find.

MonoMania Gifts
As you enter the store the wall of vendors you’ll see are the currently available Monomania group gifts. Seriously ladies, that’s half way to a new wardrobe! haha There are also a few group only Lucky Letter boards, and a group only Midnight Madness board. The Monomania group does have a one time join fee of 50 lindens, however as you can see it is 50 lindens well spent! The style of ladies mesh and applier clothing at Monomania has a wide range, so there’s definitely something for everyone.
Monomania Other Groups & Camping
A bit farther to the right of the Lucky Letter boards at Monomania you’ll find a large group of affiliate groups and their associated gifts. It’s in this spot where the FREE and exclusive Fab Free group gift by Monomania is available to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. If you haven’t picked this gorgeous green mesh dress up yet, you’ll want to make sure to snag it. It’ll be great for the current warm weather or with cute knee boots in the fall. As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join.  Monomania also has a camping chair, park your avatar for 30 minutes to claim the prize!

She’s a Happy Camper

A Happy Camper

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  In the midst of holiday shopping, Rip and I decided to take a break over at Etchaflesh.  A few days ago, in my post [HERE], the pupster and I featured a stylish vest we picked up at the store, and we decided to return today to camp awhile.  We were very well rewarded!

Pick Your Poison

While Ripley happily gnawed on a bone, I relaxed for just 35 minutes in one of the plush chairs arranged along the back wall of the store.  Right when the time elapsed, this cozy Poison sweater joined my inventory.  In addition to the knitted pullover, the free prize package included a HUD with 15 color choices for changing up the texture of the arms.  Featuring a scooped neck line, long sleeves, and a realistic ribbed texture, this sweater is destined to become a winter wardrobe staple for me.  I appreciated its generous length, which ensured my tummy stayed toasty warm.

What’s Included:

  • fitted mesh
  • standard sized mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • alpha layers for both mesh styles
  • Texture HUD for the sleeves

Poison

Avoiding a Cuff Malfunction

I wanted to don a pair of boots to wear while romping with Ripley through the snowy climate of It All Starts With a Smile.  The only problem was the bottom edge of my pants poked right through the sides of my boots …. one of those dreaded SL wardrobe mishaps that never occurs in real life.  After a quick perusing of the Marketplace, I netted this Purrrvy Skinny Jeans applier from the IGNOTO store for only 25L.  Although I applied the jeans on my Maitreya Lara mesh body, they are also designed for Belleza, Slink, and Omega.  With a flattering fit, detailed stitching, and a dark denim wash, these jeans are perfect for casual wear, or they can be easily dressed up with the right layers and shoes.  Best of all, they behave themselves, and don’t project through my boots.  Yay!

As you can see in my photo, Ripley and I have a few packages to deliver before nightfall, so we’d better get pedaling.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Etched in Style

Laced in Style
Hello Fabulouses! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  In real life, I try to stay *far* away from malls and shopping on Black Friday, and the next couple of days afterwards.  It seems like whenever I think I’ve found a parking spot, it turns out to be a small car!  In SL, it’s a different story – no worries about parking here!  With a day off from work, Ripley and I traveled around, scoping out another Fabulous Find to share with our wonderful readers.

Gone Camping

Over at Etchaflesh, I had no trouble finding a parking spot.  In fact, I brought my trusty Kindle, along with the pupster’s favorite bone, and we settled into one of eight cozy camping chairs placed on the back wall of the store.  After just 30 minutes of “parking,” I happily welcomed this sassy, sleeveless parka to the fold for free.  It features a crop top, and a long vest that is accented with several jazzy buttons, stars, and stripes.  A color-change HUD allows you to alter the texture of the vest (outer and inner lining), crop top, and the decorative buttons, stars, and stripes individually, so you can create a variety of looks.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Physique, and Venus
  • Standard-sized mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Texture HUD

I’ve Got My Sassy Pants on Today

The trendy style of my parka called for slacks with attitude, and I located the perfect trousers – Pencil Pants for Maitreya by Beck.  These black, laced, leather pants provided just the look I was striving for.  I love the detail of the tied lacing.  Created exclusively for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, Mie Beck offers them for sale in her Marketplace shop for only 50L.  Mie states on her profile that her goal is to make a place where all people can afford to wear 100% mesh outfits.  These pants are not only budget-friendly, but stylish to boot!

From Head to Toe

The one Black Friday sale that Rip and I dared to venture to was at Truth Hair (Love told us about this super-saver event in her post [HERE]).  I scooped up the versatile Fenella hair for only 75L.  Able to be worn with and without the fedora, this chic ‘do features long, flowing locks, and a color-change HUD for the hat.  We had a hard time wading our way through the crowd in the lobby of the Truth store, but our persistence really paid off in the end.  I was able to scoop up several hairstyles at bargain prices.  Score for team Ripley!

After slipping on Lewis studded, flat sneakers from the Mesh Agency, Rip and I dusted off the bike, and pedaled over to the Gates of Melancholy sim where we worked off some of those Thanksgiving dinner calories by exploring along the beach.

I hope you enjoyed the fun, casual Fabulous Find we put together for you today.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping camping!
