Shall We Dance, M’Lady?

A Night at the Ball

Hello there, Fabulouses! It’s not often that I opt to role play in SL, but Ripley happened to catch wind of fantastic his/her free matchy-matchy 18th century outfits that Stan and I just had to check out. If you are a role player in SL, these might be just up your alley! Each gift package includes everything you need from head to toe – all for free with no group join required!

For the Lady…

From wig and hat down to slippered feet, the ladies’ gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit is a complete 18th century outfit perfect for a formal ball. I chose to wear just the gown, gloves, skirt, sleeves, bow and Sacque (kind of like a cape in back), but the gift folder also includes a color change wig, wrap, cap, stockings and slippers. I just love the frilly trim and lace as well as the generous hoop style skirt. I felt so elegant while wearing it! The best part of all was it was completely free and I didn’t have to join any group to pick it up!
Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic clothing layers (gloves, shoe base, stockings, top, underpants, underskirt, alpha layer)
  • Applier for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Omega Advanced Applier HUD
  • Sacque
  • Skirt
  • Right and left sleeves
  • Wig with color change HUD and hairbase
  • Cap
  • Slippers

And For the Gentlemen…

Although he grumbled about wearing a wig, I thought Stan looked dashing in his suit, which is a free gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit. The men’s gift doesn’t have as many separate components like the ladies’ version, but it looks just as spectacular, and includes everything needed for a fantasy evening. From the powdered wig down to the buckled shoes, Stan was all set to go. He really appreciated the fact that he could throw all the clothing on with just one click. There was no need to mess around with adding different layers or separate clothing items. He simply had to decide to go with either the standard or no lace version of the suit and then add his wig. No fuss, no muss and then he was pacing, waiting for me to finish getting ready. Isn’t that the way it always goes? 😉

What’s Included:

  • M Suit
  • M Suit (no lace)
  • Alpha layer
  • Wig

We’re off to enjoy an evening of waltzing and role play. Until next time, happy shopping!

Let’s Go – Summer is Waiting!

Summer is Waiting

Hello there Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of done with winter and its viruses!  Ripley and I decided to make a break for summer.  We’ve got the car packed up, I’m wearing a brand new outfit that I picked up for free, and the pupster has his favorite fetch toys stowed away right next to the box of Ripley Snacks.  There’s plenty of room if you want to join us.  Hop on in!

She’s a Wild Child

Just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL Group, you can pick up my entire outfit for free over at the Alias! shop.  Featuring a tie dye halter top, cut off denim jeans shorts with a narrow suede belt, and cute tip toe sandals, Wild Child is ideal for an impromptu visit to summer.  The generous designer tucked a color change HUD for the shirt and the heels into the gift box, which gives you the choice between 12 different color schemes.  As you can see, the shoes and top coordinate beautifully together!  Besides the fact that the entire ensemble is completely free, the best part is that it includes versions for classic avatars as well as for mesh bodies!  There is a note inside the folder which explains that if you have an Ebody or Tonic mesh body, the outfit may or may not fit your avatar depending on your shape and the alpha included with your mesh body.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Top – Standard Size in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Shorts – Fitmesh Classic XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

I almost forgot my sunscreen!  We’re going to make a pit stop on the way to grab some SPF50, as well as plenty of snacks and drinks for the road.  We’ll be leaving soon, so don’t delay if you’re up for a trip, too.  Until next time, bye bye winter colds and flu…. I am SO over you!!

One Magical Winter Day

One Winter Day

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m finally feeling better and am so glad to be back to blogging again.  I’ve missed you!  Ripley and I celebrated our return to SL by exploring the trail of the Magical Winter Hunt.  At C!L Botique, we discovered this gorgeous winter gown for just 1 Linden dollar, plus a bit of time searching.  Trust me, this outfit is well worth the effort to locate the hunt object, which is a snowflake.

Winter Elegance

Everything I have on in the photo is included in the hunt prize, as well as a cape that I opted not to wear.  Featuring an ivory color scheme and delicate details, I would have happily paid way more than one Linden dollar for it.  I just love the shoulder cut outs which offer a glimpse of skin while still leaving long sleeves to keep your arms warm.  The gown itself features a silvery trim and a beautifully detailed, ornate texture.  Its long train sweeps the ground, which makes it quite suitable for formal events.  The fluffy cap is sure to keep your head toasty warm on the chilliest winter day.  I have to say, this outfit has to be one of my most favorite hunt prizes!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until next time, happy hunting!

Lemon Verbina

Meow Meow Hi Fab Free! Haha I hope you’re enjoying the weekend. I have to say mine is going pretty well so far. Have you been by the Pose Fair yet?! I feel like I’ve been talking about it a ton, but with good reason. I am not exaggerating when I say there are so many free gifts at the Pose Fair. I also want to point out that while I may not be blogging them, there are quite a few male pose freebies and couples poses. So there’s my bit about the Pose Fair for today. I am of course showing another of the gifts from the event, this time from WetCat. Also, I picked up the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Sexy Princess. Lastly, as always tattoos are irresistible, and Letis Tattoo has a cute 10 linden tattoo out that I just had to share.

The Cushion – The cute little yellow cushion that Pru is so delicately perched upon is the free Pose Fair group gift by WetCat. This simple floor pillow comes equipped with 2 static female sit poses, and 2 static male sits. You’ll need to join the Pose Fair group and wear the tag before clicking the giftbox at the WetCat booth. The Pose Fair group is free to join.

The Boots – Have you seen the Fabulously Free in SL group  gift listing recently? It’s looking pretty good. The gifts do change periodically, so if you haven’t checked them out recently, you should definitely take a look. I picked up these high heeled ankle boots for free at Sexy Princess while wearing my Fab Free group tag. The Fab Free group is always free to join. These cute boots come in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

The Tattoo – Finally, the dainty floral linework tattoo on Pru’s upper arm is a 10 linden group only purchase available at Letis Tattoo. You will need to join the Letis Tattoo group to purchase this inexpensive find, however the group is free to join. As much as I do like to be heavily inked, sometimes I enjoy these beautiful more subtle tattoos just as much as a full body one. This 10 linden tattoo comes in several appliers, each with a range of intensity. Also, this tattoo comes in classic system tattoo layers for non mesh avatars!

Appliers Included:

Tackling Two Resolutions at Once

Woodsy Green

Hello there Fab Free!  I’ve been on the lookout for wintry menswear items to share with you all seeing as how that’s one of my New Year’s resolutions.  Ripley told me about this awesome free denim jacket and hoodie and wouldn’t you know it?  A certain female blogger beat me to it!  This time, when I heard about the fantastic clearance sale going on over at Gabriel, I didn’t give her a chance to see if any of the dollarbies would fit her avatar.  I sent her on a long walk with the pupster, and headed over to the shop myself to see what I could pick up.

Fisherman’s Knit Sweater

Another of my goals for 2019 is to do  more fishing with (or without) man’s best friend.  I’m still not so sure at all that Ripley is man’s best friend.  First, he abandoned me to run off for an almost empty box of Ripley snacks, then he went and told Kat about MY denim jacket/hoodie.  Anyway, I might not have a fishing pal, but I certainly have a thick, high neck sweater to ward off watery breezes.  I really like the olive green and chunky knit on the sweater I scooped up at the Gabriel Clearance Sale.  It set me back just one Linden dollar and is sure to become a chilly weather fave.  Although the package didn’t include versions for mesh bodies, by adjusting the alpha layer on my Slink Physique body, I had no problem finding the right size for me.

Sizes Included:

  • XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Includes alpha layer for classic avatars

Olive Chinos

While grabbing the High Neck Sweater, I spotted a pair of olive Chinos out of the corner of my eye, and thought they’d be a perfect match for my new fishing top.  Once again, there was no version for mesh avatars in the package, but since these pants were on sale for just 1 Linden dollar, I decided to give them a go.  As you can tell from my photo, after adjusting the alpha layer on my mesh body, they worked out swimmingly.  Ugh, maybe I should have chosen a different descriptor.  Who wants to think of swimming when you are going fishing?  I’ll just test my luck, I guess. 😉

Sizes Included:

  • XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Includes alpha layer for classic avatars

What Fishing Trip Would Be Complete Without Boat Shoes?

The answer would be not many.  Gabriel had me covered, again for just a 1 Linden dollar investment.  At the Clearance Sale, you can pick up this handy set of footwear in multiple hues, all for just 1 Linden dollar each.  I’m wearing the Camel colored set, but you can also pick up similar models in blue, red and red brown shades.  They were not designed for mesh body feet, but since they could be repositioned, I was easily able to get them to fit just right, without having to use the alpha layer.

I’m sure there will be more posts featuring items from the Clearance Sales over at Gabriel, I happened to spot a familiar blogger there shopping, and I picked up a few more items myself.  Until next time, happy shopping!

New Year, Fresh Start

New Year's Walk

Hello Fabulouses!  So, one of my goals for the New Year is to go for more walks and get some more exercise.  Since I’m still sick in RL (started antibiotics today, so I should be feeling better soon), I’m gonna have to get today’s exercise on SL.  Ripley and I went for a stroll over at the Lemon Beach sim.  I can’t always say that I would wear the outfits I blog on SL in RL, but I definitely would wear today’s!

A Jeans and Hoodie Kind of Day

I love my real life jean jacket and I was super excited to see that Complex is offering a Denim Jacket/Hoodie combo as a free group gift.  Fellas, this is designed for you all, but I just had to have it for myself (sorry, Stan, but you can go get your own – did I mention it’s FREE?).  The best part about this set is that it comes with a texture change HUD so you can alter the color of the hoodie and its lining.  You’ll have 11 choices for the hoodie, which include patterns as well as solids, and 4 options for the lining.  The jacket comes in one size only – fitted, but as you can see, I was able to wear it just fine on my Maitreya mesh body.  Since it’s from a men’s clothing store, I’m sure it will work just as well for the guys, too.  There is no alpha layer for classic avatars, but it’s worth a shot if you have a classic avi, after all, it is completely free.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you have to be a member of the Complex Updates Group, but there is no join fee.

I hope you are having a great week.  Until next time, happy shopping!
