Somewhere Off the Beaten Path

Off the Beaten Path 1

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Some days, you need to take a detour off the beaten path, and that’s just what Ripley and I did this morning.  Not only did we discover a cool, green forest sprinkled with wildflowers, we also picked up a budget-friendly outfit to share with you.

Just a Dollar?  You Bet!

For only one little Linden dollar, I scooped up the C’est la Vie maxi skirt and bra top outfit at Mirus Designs.   There are two options available at the shop: the blue that I chose to wear today, and a black version, both priced at only 1L.  The texture of the fabric is well done, with a subtle sheen, and realistic folds.  The line separating the folds in my picture was caused by my pose; it doesn’t appear when you wear the outfit in normal use.  The skirt features a waist panel with decorative stitching, and a white string tied in a bow.  I really like the way the skirt drapes down to my toes.  The outfit includes a coordinating bra top with white stitching, and a halter style neckline with narrow straps.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Venus

Here’s a front view so you can see how beautifully the two pieces blend together to create this playful, casual summer outfit.

Off the Beaten Path 2

Ripley and I plan to do a lot more exploring today.  We’ll be back soon with another Fabulous Find to share with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Prince and the Pea

Price and the Pea

Waited on Hand and Foot….

You’d think that would be great, someone talking care of your every need. Adjusting the pillows, pulling down the covers because you are hot, pulling them up because you are cold, having all your meals served to you in bed…  It is pretty awesome…. for a while, then it gets old and you want to do things for yourself. I’m happy to say that all my help has vanished and I’m glad to be doing things on my own.

Laid Up in Style…

You can still be stylish while convalescing.  I stopped by House of Ruby and found the Ruby Boxers for just 1L as part of the Masters of Style Hunt. These applier boxers come in both Slink and Omega appliers. The netted look to the boxers are great for lounging, recovering or sharing some naughty time with that someone special. The Masters of Style Hunt runs from June 17th through July 31st.

Peace & More Mojitos

Snapshot_013
Hey there Fabulouses!

This is a short and sweet post today, but I wanted to make sure I stopped in to tell you about a couple of FabFree worthy items I found – one a dollarbie on marketplace and the other a fun group gift!

My Favourite Colour!!!

I feel like I have been showing a ton of swimwear lately, and well I guess it is the season, but I found another fabulous 2pc swimsuit called Scandal you should know about.  It’s in my favourite colour (blue!), and is so pretty with the ruffled top and strappy boycut bottoms.  This set is available for just 1L in the Dusti’s Odds n Ends Marketplace Store!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Werewolf

More Mojitos

I can’t believe that I am holding a mojito in my hand again so soon after my wild ride of a girls night with Pru [HERE] and then ugh [HERE], but the new Preocupada Bento Pose by Reel Poses that comes with the floatie and bevvie is the latest group gift, and inspired me to give it another go.  The group is just 30L to join.

PEACE!

Rock-A-Billy Chick

Time Warp

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I popped on some Rockabilly music, and traveled back in time to capture a snapshot for today’s Fabulous Find. My brilliant blue polka dot frock is one of the latest gifts available to members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  Did you know that 56 generous designers offer gifts just for our members?  You can check out the entire group gift listing {HERE}.

You Belong to Me (♬ tune ♬)

Well, the Rock-A-Billy Blue ensemble can belong to you, too.  All you have to do to add this free sassy little number to your inventory is teleport over to Brandy’s Boutique, click the vendor, and pay one Linden.  Don’t worry, you’ll get your Linden dollar instantly returned along with delivery of this darling nostalgic outfit.  With a form-fitting bodice, and a frilly skirt adorned with frothy lace, this dress will have you ready to rock around the clock in retro style.  I love the swirling movement the flexi skirt provides….so fun for swing dancing!  The studded, sling back heels adorned with the cutest little bows, which are included in the gift, fit my Slink high feet perfectly.

What’s Included:

  • Rock-a-Billy Blue Multi Applier HUD (Lena Body, Maitreya and Slink)
  • Jacket, shirt, pants, underwear and tattoo layer for classic avatars
  • Flexi skirt
  • Studded bow heels

Uh oh….. The Time Machine’s on the Fritz!

Ripley and I had a blast at the Nifty 50’s Diner, but when we tried to travel home, we discovered to our dismay, that the button to bring us back to the future was broken.  As soon as we can figure out how to repair this contraption, we’ll return to tell you about some more finds.  I hope it won’t take too long…

Close Your Eyes And Float

EzmeraldasSummerLovinHunt1LSILENCE!

Can you think of anything more relaxing that silently floating in the clear blue sea?  I suppose there are a few things that could be “up there”, but for me, not much tops it.  The sun warms your skin and the water drowns out all of your worries and cares.  The water pretty much forces you to be at peace, because the second you tense up, it sucks you under like it’s trying to teach you a lesson.

Get your own gold bikini!

I am very happily floating in my new Beach Bikini that I picked up for just 1L at Ezmeralda’s for the Summer Lovin Hunt.  This Bikini comes with system layers and an omega applier as well as the bows with beads which add on at the hips, back and center of the chest.  Until the end of June, you can find the hidden beach ball hunt icon in the store and purchase it for 1L.

This Wild Hair…

My hairstyle is by Tableau Vivant Cocomuel and is one of the styles available at The Arcade Gacha for just 75L per play.  The cool thing about these unique hairstyles that are awesome for photography is that they come with bento poses!

Happy hunting… and floating!

Backside

Snapshot_001In my days as a skateboarder, they used to call me “Backside” because the 180 backside was my best trick…  Ok…  truth be told, I had no tricks and they called me “Backside” because that’s where I always landed in attempts.  These fun skater poses by [west end] are currently being featured at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room and reminded me of the fun I used to have “trying to skateboard”!

Pick Up! I’m Calling You On My Banana Phone

Pick Up! I'm Calling You On My Banana PhoneThe banana phone is not necessarily a very effective mode of conversation, however it’s worth a shot when nothing else works and if it still fails at the very least – onlookers will be entertained.

In this blog post I have news about a new group gift at Poeme and also am revisiting Just Ordinary to show off a free instore group gift.

More of the extraordinary

I had recently blogged a Fitmesh Fanatics group gift that is available at Just Ordinary and if you liked that one shown here – you’ll love this one too!  The Char Dress in Denim Flowers that you see me wearing today is available as a free gift for Just Ordinary inworld group members (free to join!)

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Mesh XS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Tonic

Now About Those Shoes…

When you join the Poeme inworld group (has a 1L group join fee), you gain access to the Double Happy Roses Chucks in the floral Rhyme print.  They were just what I needed for today’s ensemble, so it was perfect timing that I came by them!

Shoe Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Unrigged + Alpha Layer

Just One Last Thing!

The Endless Summer Hello Sunshine pose that I am using today includes the bananas (for making phone calls of your own) and is available in an instore gacha at 50L per play at Le Poppycock!

Miami Vice

Miami Vice

 

Nostalgia – 80’s Style…

It’s been a thing lately. I’ve been yearning all things circa 1980’s. I’m not sure why. Maybe I’m at that point in my life I’m starting to miss all the things that influenced the person I became. I have been rediscovering the movies, the music and the TV shows. I caught an episode of Miami Vice and remembered the fashion trend that the show started. The sports jackets over pastel t shirts. Neon and pastel colors, deck shoes were all trendy fashion back in the day.

When Neons and Pastels were the craze…

My look today mimics the style that Don Johnson (Dakota Johnson’s dad, for you youngsters) made famous. I found the Daniel Blazier, a new release at A&D Clothing (not free) for that jacket over t-shirt look. I then turned to the Marketplace and browsed the Pepper store for other pieces for my outfit. The Chino Trousers in light plum (10L) and the all white Slip on Sneakers (2L) makes my 1980’s Miami look complete.
