Let's Be Friends

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I had such good luck when we checked out the trail of the Dark and Brooding Hunt that we decided to keep searching to see what other Fabulous Finds we could unearth.  Over at The Sissy Bar, we discovered another gorgeous hunt prize for just 1 Linden Dollar.

From the Dark into the Light

This sophisticated, strapless gown will have you ready for an evening on the town.  Its slimming black fabric features a subtle floral texture and a criss cross design to emphasis your waistline.  The full length skirt section drapes to the floor where it flares slightly for ease of movement.  It is simple yet elegant and allows your beauty to take center stage.  With versions for classic as well as multiple mesh body types, there is something for everyone in this dollarbie hunt prize.  All you have to do is locate the collection of pillar candles hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a hint giver in the store on the hunt poster.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP

Until our next post, happy hunting!

Out of the Woods

Out of the Woods

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.  It might look like Ripley and I are feeling all dark and brooding, but actually we enjoyed a bright sunny day in RL.  We’re here to share a couple of Fabulous Finds with you that we think you’ll really enjoy.

I’m Feeling a Bit Sassy…

It must be this new free Black Dress that I picked up over at the Sass store.  With a plunging neckline and two peek-a-boo slits in the skirt, it certainly is a flirty little number.  I love the way this frock hugs your curves and leaves your back tantalizingly bare.  You can’t really see them from my photo, but there are 3 little buttons that gleam in the light which add visual interest to the bodice.  The black and gray striped skirt section and over all dark color scheme made me think of a spooky, mysterious vibe, so Ripley and I decided to visit an eerie forest for our photo.  Although the weather might be getting more nippy outside, fortunately in SL, I don’t need to worry about catching a chill in this saucy mini dress. To pick up a copy for your SL wardrobe, you need to be a member of the Sass group, and there is a small 10 Linden dollar join fee, but I think this dress is well worth the investment!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

These Boots

As much as I love my new dress, I *adore* the Petra Boots from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes that I am wearing!  With a high heel design, detailed lacing and silver accents, these boots are great to wear with a dressier outfit, but also flexible enough to coordinate with a more casual style.  The white stitching really pops against the black leather background.  The folder includes versions for classic avatars (with a shoe base, alpha layer and a handy resizer for the perfect fit) as well as for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass.  All I had to do to add this versatile pair of footwear to my closet was to locate the collection of pillar candles hidden in the shop (and by *I*, I meant Ripley), pay the teensy 1L price and scurry home to try them on.  The Dark and Brooding Hunt runs until September 30th and features a gothic, vampire theme, which is perfect for the upcoming Halloween holiday.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Cheap Thrills


Sweet Sorcery

It probably is not a good idea to ask a witch if she can turn someone into a frog. She just might show you. It is however a good idea to ask me about the 12 linden gifts by Firelight and Nerdy Girl at the current round of Twe12ve. Most, if not all of the participating shops have a 12-linden item along with their event items and exclusives. I picked up the hair gift by Firelight and the clothing gift by Nerdy Girl. Keep reading for some info about each of these 12 linden finds, or scroll down for the credits. As for me, I’m gonna enjoy this frog!

Firelight

I really like this high ponytail hairstyle by Firelight. The long wispy bangs make me think of Bridget Bardot and that is never a bad thing. This hairstyle is the Firelight 12 linden gift at Twe12ve. It comes in 2 sizes and has a color change hud with the choice of either the dark brown shade shown, or a light brown shade. There’s no need to join a group to get this special price, just look for the little gift vendor at the Firelight stall at the Twe12ve event.

Nerdy Girl

The top by Nerdy Girl I’m wearing is also just 12 linden at Twe12ve. It comes in quite a few sizes, and has an alpha layer so it is suitable for classic non-mesh avatars. This cute baby-doll style top has a color/texture change hud with 6 solid color choices, and 6 prints. Again, there’s no need for any group, just pay the gift vendor 12 linden.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Hourglass, Phsique), Belleza (Venus, Freya, Isis), Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Did You Hear That?


Did You Hear That

Friday the 13th is the perfect day to go camping, right? Surely nothing sinister would happen… I can just hear the iconic “something bad is about to happen” music starting to play! I love a classic horror flick, so when Blue showed me these Camp Crystal Lake tees by ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) I had to share them with you; today being Friday the 13th is just the icing on the cake.

The matching his and hers shirts are the free Twisted Hunt prize at ZFG. When hunting be wary of the decoy boxes the Twisted Hunt is famous for. The Twisted Hunt runs through the end of the month, so you have some time to get things figured out. There are no hints either, so I can’t help you there. To get yours, you’ll have to head over to ZFG and hunt it down! The male and female version are in the same box.

Men’s Shirt Sizes: Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Slink, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Women’s Shirt Sizes: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), TMP, Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

Here’s What Blue Has On:

Hair – Vango – Owen
Head – Akeruka – Clay
Skin – 7Deadly Skins – Earth – Caramel
Shirt – ZFG (Zero F*cks Given) – Camp Crystal Lake – Free Twisted Hunt Prize
Pants – Wilson’s Designs – Jeans – 1L *Part of the For Him Hunt Prize
Shoes – Native Urban – Enhanced Boots – Marketplace
Body – Belleza Jake

Colour Your Monday

Colour Your Monday

Monday calls for comfort food.  When I have a day that gets a bit crazy, my first is always “fries!”.  So I made my way over to a diner, ordered some poutine (of course, hello…I’m Canadian…) and reapplied my lipstick.  Plus, food in SL is always 0 calories!  A bit lacking on the tastiness though…

A Bit of Spirit

I picked up this very colourful and cheering dress over at Sarah’s Boutique.  It reminds me of colouring books that are meant to calm the souls of harried adults.  I guess instead of colouring it, I just wore it instead!  I picked this slinky little number up by joining the group for FREE and clicking on the vendor which is up on the third floor (pay it 1L, which it will return to you).  Easy Peasy!  There a bunch of other gifts there too while you’re at it!  Wheee!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • XXS – L with an Alpha Layer

It’s my Jam!

There’s a fun group gift over at Jam as well – bento nails that come with an HUD to mix and match each nail to your heart’s content!  I joined the group for 50L and grabbed it.  These nails are compatible with Maitreya, Slink and Legacy hands.  Yay!

Time to dig in!

Thinking Late Thoughts


Late Thoughts

There are some nights when none of the pillows I own are comfortable, no position is restful, and my mind refuses to quiet. There are lots of remedies one could try for such sleeplessness, I however often use the opportunity to indulge in something frivolous like shopping in Second Life. The pose that has me draped lazily over my pillows is part of a free pose pack at Insomnia Angel. Additionally, this sleek bun hairstyle is a new group gift at Pink Hustler. Keep reading for some more details, or scroll on down for the credits.

Insomnia Angel 

Skip all the things at the front of the Insomnia Angel store for now, and head to the back of the shop where you’ll find a little confessional booth among all the books and décor. Hanging on the wall that divides the two sides of the confessional is a free set of poses. There’s no group required for this item, just pay the vendor 0 linden.

Free Gift!

Pink Hustler               

This neat petty bun hairstyle is the most recent group gift at Pink Hustler. It comes with 3 color huds for lots of color options. This style by Pink Hustler also has resize scripts for easy fitting. There is a one time join fee of 500 linden to join the Pink Hustler group, however there is an entire wall of group gifts available including hair, nails, and accessories.

Here’s What I’m Wearing:

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are as ready as I am for some fall colors.  Today, Ripley and I are bringing you a little slice of fall foliage as we share a couple of budget friendly Fabulous Finds.  I hope you like them!  Before I get into the details, if you are looking for a beautifully decorated autumn landscape, I’d highly recommend a visit to the Cherishville sim.  The puster and I really enjoyed the oranges, browns and other fall colors when we were there. They provided a wonderful contrast for the dark hues of my outfit.

A Great Hat Speaks for Itself

First up, my cheeky cap is a gift from the Inventory Trends store.  With a darling bow and just enough of a brim to shield your eyes from the sun, the Velma hat adds a functional and cute finishing touch to my ensemble.  Best of all, I picked it up for free, just by being a member of the Third Life Group.  The group has no join fee, so I didn’t have to pay a single Linden dollar for my newest fashion accessory.  Although the hat cannot be resized, I was able to move it around on my head and I resized my hair underneath to get the fit I was looking for.  The thoughtful designer tucked a HUD inside with three texture options so you can coordinate with different color schemes.  In addition to the black I am sporting, you could also choose red or a dark brown.  While you’re in the shop, you might want to try picking up one of the fourteen other gifts set out on the wall for members of various groups.  I’ve included a close up photo below so you can get a better look at Velma.

Velma

There’s Something Sexy…

about a girl with an attitude and a pair of leather pants.  The mesh black leather pants from the Bang Bang shop on the Marketplace pick up where Velma left off in the attitude department.  With a soft sheen, zippered pockets and a skin tight fit, you will feel super skinny, sexy and toasty warm when you wear this wardrobe essential.  No chilly autumn breeze will work its way through these pants!  Best of all, with a price tag of a mere 10 Linden dollars, you’ll hardly notice the difference in your bank account balance after your purchase. The folder includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars, so there is something for everyone tucked inside.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatiblity:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!
