Big City vs. Small Town

Big City vs. Small Town
When I was young and brave, I moved from a very big city to a small town. I thought I was getting away from the hustle and bustle, but what I learned was that even the small towns bustle, just in different ways. I miss the big city, but I’m still nearby and can visit!

Wear This Anywhere!

Whether you are in a big city or a small town setting, I.M. Collection will have you covered!  Stop by and pick up the free Fitmesh Fanatics Gift with a free group join in the group gifts area of the store.  You’ll find it just around the corner from the reception desk at the entrance.  This classy one piece skirt/blouse combination comes in plenty of mesh body fits as listed below.

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & venus

Blue and Baubles

Vision_001

Hello Fabulouses! I’m stopping by to blog a couple of pretty finds that I’m sure you’ll want to add to your wardrobe.

Pick up a pretty dress.

I often blog things from Vision simply because they are such good quality. This newest group gift is no exception. You can pick it up with the free to join store group or the VIP group either one. So the dress is completely free. It includes a color change hud for 22 color choices as well as separate color choices for the panties. You’ll also get a top in the box completely separate so you can wear that without the skirt.

This fits the following bodies:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

Baubles!

I picked up my pretty blue gem bracelets at Chop Zuey. These are in the “free to all” section and you can just buy them for 0L. If you want the matching necklace and earrings you can pick those up too, but you’ll need to be part of the group. The group is 350L to join, but you’ll get a plethora of regular gifts to make it worth your while.

Run, Don't Walk

Hey Fab Free!  I don’t have too much time for a chat today, because I’ve got  time-sensitive gifts for you!  Eek!

Hush Up and Give the Deets

Ok, I’ll be quiet now and tell you where I got my outfit!  Astrid picked up some great free gifts from Redeux.  The thing is, you have a very limited time to grab these free gifts if you haven’t had a chance yet!  The event is closing today, so have a peek at a few of the things I picked up from Le Fil Cassé and Noir.  My dress by Le Fil Cassé is really lovely in satiny textures and three fabulous colours.  It is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.  My heels by Noir are very versatile and come with a colour change HUD that will suit your needs, I’m sure.  They are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.  Rush down to Redeux, join the group and grab your gifts before it’s all over!

RUN!

Sweet April Showers

April Showers

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  While out on our evening jaunt that I mentioned in my last post, the pupster and I decided to check out the April Showers Hunt.  I am so glad we did because over at C!L Boutique, we discovered a gorgeous gown in a lovely soft teal shade, called “rain.”  Let me tell you, this stunner is well worth the small 1L price!

Ready for Dancing in the Rain

With an empire waist and a full length skirt, this frock will have you ready for formal events.  The bodice features a whimsical spiral design which draws the eyes upward to your bare shoulders.  If the evening is chilly or April showers begin to fall, don’t worry, because the generous designer tucked a cloak and a Victorian style umbrella into the package to shield you from the elements.  I opted not to wear them for my photo, but they add a vintage appeal to the outfit.   Also included (but not worn for my picture) a sheer veil can be worn over the skirt, which is quite pretty.  With classic and mesh body versions, this dollarbie hunt prize is a perfect addition to any girl’s wardrobe.  The April Showers Hunt runs until April 30th, and offers a myriad of prizes, all for 1L.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Lush Lunch

Lush Lunch

Do you remember those TV shows back in the early 2000s about groups of girlfriends, sitting around and having lunch in a posh restaurant in New York City, or perhaps sipping on sour apple martinis while laughing about the craziness of life?  My lifestyle clearly doesn’t really lend to drinking martinis during the lunch hour in RL, but when it comes to SL, it’s all about gadding about town, and pulling up at a fancy restaurant to have whatever food I so desire…

Oh You Fancy

I needed the perfect outfit for my imaginary lunch at a fancy restaurant.  Luckily for me, Rosary has put out a new group gift that is quite literally a showstopper.  It comes with a colour change HUD so you can choose from a bunch of gorgeous colours, depending on your mood.  I felt spring-like and went with the appealing lavender shade.  You can pick up your own dress by joining the Rosary group for 200 Lindens. There are two other just as gorgeous outfits out for you, making it totally worth the join fee.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Something Different

Although I’m stepping out in some pretty sexy clothing, I had to bring my own flavour to the mix with the little stars you see tatooed under my eyes.  You can grab this striking look by La Malvada Mujer at The Cosmetic Fair by joining the group for free and clicking on the gifts you’ll find peppered about the place.  This look comes with two appliers including Omega and Genesis Cosmetics.

Cheers!

Speaking of Fae…

Fairy_001

Not long ago, I visited the Redeux event and showed off one of the free gifts I picked up in a post [here]. I’ve been unpacking boxes ever since. There are so many gifts that it seems I’ll be unpacking boxes for months! Luckily I managed to narrow down my findings to a few special ones to share with you. It’s not secret that I love roleplay and fantasy looks, so I was excited to put together a roleplay look for you. I helped it along with a group gift from a special store that you’ll want to pick up.

So versatile…

I stopped by Silvan Moon Designs to pick up the April Gift and discovered that the gift this month is really versatile. This little dress is a casual style that you could wear as a Boho dress if you were out-of-character, or you could doll it up with accessories to make a fae as I have done, or it has just enough of a traveler feel to create a gypsy. There are so many possibilities! The Silvan Moon Designs group has a one-time join fee of 500L, but you will get a quality gift each month to more than make up for the fee. This dress comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Original, and Slink Hourglass bodies.

Speaking of Fae…

So you know I revisited Redeux. I picked up my wings from Poet’s Heart. They are a beautiful pearlized shade of purple, draped in pearls. They include a color change hud for the pearls too! This is a free gift with your Redeux tag, and the Redeux gift is free to join.

What else?

What else did I get? I also nabbed some stone textures. A package of 18 really terrific ones to be exact. To get these, stop by the Timeless textures booth at Redeux and pick up the free gift there. You can see an example of one of the great looking textures behind me in these pictures.

Fairy_002

Oh and one more thing…

I LOVE this necklace by Steelhead Outfitters. It fits perfectly and is another free gift from Redeux. This is another one of those gifts that is perfect for roleplay or everyday wear either one. It also includes a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the cord and the circular pendant both separately for lots of versatility! And don’t forget that it’s free!

Craving Coachella

Craving Coachella

All weekend I saw people posting photos of their trips to Coachella music festival – you know, dressing up all crazy cool and dancing in the dust, with flowers in your hair.  I’m still stuck in the land of ice storms and shivers so I hopped inworld and found myself a cactus to pose beside!  I’m enjoying the rays of the sun on my way to see Beyoncé while sipping on some agave lemonade (I dunno, sounds like a thing to do in the desert!).  But the best part is – my outfit is completely free!

Dress me Up

I absolutely love this light and airy dress by Sophisticate that I found for free at the Garden of Shadows event.  There are several moderately priced gifts hanging around (mostly around 10L), but this one is completely free!  I love the mint green colour and the little heart cutouts.  Perfect for a day in the sun.  (I hope I don’t get weird tan lines…).  You can get it too by heading to the Garden of Shadows and seeking out the Sophisticate booth.  You’ll be happy you did!

Sizes

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

More Hair!

Another event going down right now is Gachaland!  There are loads of  free gifts to be had there, but today I’m going to just tease a bit and show you the hair I found by Ayashi.  They’re always generous and have some great hairstyles out at events for free. Today’s side braid will keep me cool in the warm weather, as well as keeping me cool in the “Oh, Aline you’re so cool” kind of way since it’s pink! There are several pastel hues in the HUD with this hairdo.  Oh and yup – it’s free!  Just join the Gimme Gacha group and pick it up!

Who run the world?  Moi!

Pearl_001

Inspired…

Kat got all dolled up for a date night out and I was inspired to do the same, though I took my own spin on things since of course Kat and I have different styles. I found a couple of hunt items at Glitzz and also stopped by Redeux, which has just opened up and will be open until the 21st, to pick up free gifts!

Getting ready…

My dress from Glitzz, which could double as lingerie, includes panties and comes in a beautiful pearlized blue color with a lace hem and neckline and pearl shoulder straps. It’s sexy al la mode for sure. It only comes in Maitreya and Hourglass, but you might be able to do some fiddling to get it to fit your body type if you tried. For the price of 1L as part of the Honey Funny Bunny Hunt, it’s worth trying it out to see if this sexy number will fit your mesh body. It fit my Maitreya body like a perfect glove.

The choker.

My choker is a diamond masterpiece set in a gold setting. There is an included hud which allows you to change the setting to silver. There are two different chokers in the gift box … an unscripted version that is simply a pretty choker/necklace, and an open collar rlv version for those who want some adult risky play. This choker is a gift from Glitzz as part of the Evil Bunny Hunt and will only cost you 1L and a little hunting time.

Final Touches.

I wanted to add a little “sexy mystery” to my look and I found it at Redeux. This is the anniversary round, so not only are there lots of 25L items, 50% off items, and low price gachas, but there are also many many amazing free gifts. I picked up this lace mask by Viki with my free to join Redeux tag. There were free gifts at every booth though, so hurry over before the event ends on April 21st!

Mask appliers available:

  • Lelutka
  • Omega
