Dancing on My Own

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a lovely, relaxing weekend.  While in the midst of our wanderings through the grid, Ripley and I came across a fantastic group gift that I just had to tell you about!  I blogged earlier this month {HERE} about a previous gift from Arcane Spellcaster.  The generous designer has replaced Spring Blue with a free 500L gift card for members of the Arcane Spellcaster AK Creations group.  No, that wasn’t a typo!  If you joined the group after my previous post, switch back to the group tag, teleport over, and claim your very own gift card worth 500L.  If you aren’t yet a member, the join fee is 250L, but you can scoop up some lovely items on a shopping spree!

So Many Possibilities

Typically with group gifts, you don’t get a choice in what item you receive, so I thoroughly enjoyed wandering around the store, and checking out all my options.  The lovely Patricia gown immediately caught my eye, and when I slipped it on, Ripley wagged his tail with approval.  With slender shoulder straps, a lace-covered midsection, and a long, curve-hugging skirt, this dress is pure elegance.  I love the way the translucent overlay adds a lace texture over the trailing skirt.  Also included in the package are gauzy sleeves, and a pearl necklace, which I opted not to wear for my photo.  The gift comes with a HUD with four textures; you can color the entire outfit the same as I have done, or use a different hue for the bra, dress and sleeves.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitted Mesh
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

If Patricia is not your style, there are *plenty* of other options to choose from at Arcane Spellcaster.  I had a tough time deciding which pieces to add to my inventory.  I’m sure you’ll find an outfit that catches your eye.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Look Sharp For Free

Java
Hello Fabulouses!  Sometimes in Second Life, you require something a little more on the professional side for attire, and it’s not always easy to find for free.  Perhaps you have an inworld job as a customer service representative for a shop, or another type of job where you need to put your capable and confident foot forward.  Either way, this “Comfort Here Dress” by JAVA that is set out as a freebie fits the bill.

Make The Right Impression

The Comfort Here Dress comes in XS-XL mesh sizes and includes an alpha layer for those that need it.  There are no mesh specific body fits for this gift, however I was able to get this to fit like a glove with my Maitreya Lara mesh body using it’s alpha HUD.  It also comes with some free jewelry, however I prefer less to more when it comes to jewelry and accessories, and just wore the dress.  You can find this free gift near the subscribomatic by the main entrance, just priced at 0L – no need to join a group to take advantage of the offer.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/19/2017 – Adoness

Adoness Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! The pretty moonlit building pictured above is none other than Adoness, the shop for this week’s Designer Friday post. Adoness is probably best known for their unique edgy hairstyles in rich bold colors. However you’ll also find some ladies clothing, accessories, and even nail appliers and eyes. I would describe the style at Adoness as slightly gothic lolita. However I think it lends itself not only to an urban style, but other fantasy genres like anime also.

Adoness Info & Gifts
Once inside the shop, you’ll see the interior is uniquely decorated like the exterior. Just inside the entrance on the wall you’ll see the current Fab Free exclusive FREE group gift from Adoness. Astrid showed this gift previously in her post “Join Me at the Pub.” To get this gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor. If you’re not already a member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.  In the center of the room you’ll find a column with a desk and a subscriber joiner, in world group, a link to the blog, Marketplace, and a landmark giver on one side. Sitting on the desk are two dollarbie hairstyles. On a different side of the same column is where you’ll find the information about store groups and affiliations.

While most of the items at Adoness are for the ladies, there are several items like eyes and hairstyles that I believe could be considered unisex. Browse the hairstyles on the left side of the shop, and find clothing, accessories, gachas, and other items to the right. There’s even more shopping upstairs.

Eye Candy

FurtacorGarageFair
Good morning Fabulous Readers!  I am still happily unboxing gifts and dollarbies that I have picked up at The Garage Fair.  Last night I opened up the 1L item by Furtacor and was very pleasantly surprised with this sexy little summer dress.

For Just 1L…

You too can own the Furtacor Candy Dress as shown on my avatar for just one little linden by visitng the Furtacor display at The Garage Fair.  This dress comes in mesh (with alpha), fitmesh and Slink specific body sizes and has a texture change hud with 30 different top and skirt combinations and three options for lace.  I went with the black floral print for both the top and the skirt, but you can choose textures for the top and skirt separately.  There are tons of solids and prints to choose from if flowers aren’t your thing.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS – L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • XXS – L Fitmesh
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

I See Your True Colours

BlackRose
A Primary Pairing

Good morning Fabulouses!  BlackRose Fashion, usually puts out one group gift per month, but this month there are two of them!  I haven’t even had a chance to try on the first one yet which is a floral printed dress, but when this sweet 2pc set came up as a second group gift, I jumped right in it.  The bright primary colours just screamed at me to wear them… and so I did.

The BlackRose inworld group is free to join, so you have nothing to lose and plenty to gain!  The Pencil Skirt and Top Set include both the mesh pencil skirt and laced top with off-the-shoulder sleeves in a variety of mesh and mesh body specific sizes.  As these come in two pieces, you can even choose to wear them separate if you like.

Sizes Included:

  • XS – XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Ebody
  • Tonic
  • TMP

What’s The Point?

With the primary colours and straight lines this outfit features, I went with a simple gold triangle point necklace that I picked up at FaMESHed as a free Anniversary Gift.  The FaMESHed group is free to join and you can find this gift at the RealEvil Industries display.

Slip Into a Little Red Dress

Lady in Red

Hello Fabulouses!  Mondays………nothing a little shopping can’t fix!  All you need to do is scoop up a sexy, little red dress.   The Ecce Bellus dress is a gorgeous, crimson frock crafted from crushed silk.  Slender shoulder straps, a curve-hugging fit, and a daring slit in the skirt will draw all eyes your way.   A low cut back provides a tantalizing glimpse of skin as it keeps you cool on a warm spring day.  Best of all, the mini is completely free for members of the Fabulously Free in SL Group.  All you have to do is switch to your Fab Free tag, teleport over the the Ecce Bellus shop, and give the board a tap.  The gift also includes the free coordinating Cassie Heels for Belleza and Slink High.  The graceful T-Strap style sandals continue the flirty feel of my outfit all the way down to the tips of my toes.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer

Despite the stormy gray skies, Ripley and I decided to take a stroll through the beautifully landscaped Black Cat Orcadi Island sim, and found a lovely bed of poppies to act as a backdrop for my photo.    Now *this* is definitely the way to shake off those Monday blues!  Until next time, happy shopping, Fabulous Readers!

All That I Am

All That I Am

“All that I am, and all that I hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

A Gift to Celebrate Mothers Everywhere

The quote above is so true!  There is no love like that of a mother for her child.  In honor of Mother’s Day, Hilly Haalan has set out these deep pink heels and matching clutch as a free gift for members of the Hilly Haalan Fashions Group, which is completely free to join.  The Mitzi Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, and SLink high mesh feet feature an open toe box to allow your tootsies room to wiggle and get a breath of fresh air.  With a semi-transparent body, and delicate ankle straps, this pair of summer footwear is elegant and comfortable.  I love the raspberry pink shade!  Coordinating perfectly with the shoes, the polka-dotted Mitzi clutch is just the right size for stowing a tube of lipstick and essentials for the day.

When in Doubt……Wear Polka Dots

The strappy, slip-style Pink Dot Dress from Kendrasy Creations harmonized beautifully with the playful, pink, polka dot theme established by my purse.  Falling to below the knees, this frock features a deeply scooped back, and a pretty, scalloped edge on the bodice.  Its figure-hugging cut emphasizes all your curves, but keeps you covered in all the right places.  An added, fitted skirt panel comes with permission to modify so that it molds perfectly to your mesh body, but I didn’t need to adjust it at all for my Maitreya Lara body.  For only 60L, you can wrap yourself in this sensual summer dress, which fits both classic and mesh avatars.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Omega
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Pure Elegance

To shield my eyes from the glare of midday, I opted to add a chic, white, floppy sun hat that I discovered for only 69L on the Marketplace at L&R Studios.  Its snowy, white suede material provided elegant sun protection as I strolled along the streets of Maison de L’amitie with my pal Ripley by my side.  Often, I need to edit and stretch hats to get them to cover all my hair, but I only needed to slightly adjust where this hat sat on my head for it to fit just right.

On a more personal note, tomorrow will be my first Mother’s Day in RL without my beloved Mom.  😦 I miss her so very much!  If you are fortunate enough to still have your mother with you, please give her an extra hug tomorrow if you can, in honor of my mom.  I wish I still could hug her.  Until next time, take care, my friends.

Smoke On The Water

untitled

I’m not a smoker anymore, and haven’t been for 2 decades now.  I usually turn my nose up to the smell of stale smoke… but when I walk through a whiff of my old trusty menthols, my mouth starts to water!  I swiped one for old times sake from his “secret – I don’t smoke anymore stash”, which he won’t call me on – because he would have to admit it exists.  🙂

Enough of the jibber jabber! Where did you get that dress?

I’m out enjoying the sun today, wearing my new floral mini dress called Lilli that I picked up on Marketplace in the Lamu Fashion store for just 1L!  The all over delicate floral print is just lovely on this basic thigh slit / spaghetti strap mini dress.  I wanted to show it off on it’s own, but I bet it looks really cute with a denim jacket too.

It comes in several sizes, which you can see below:

  • XS – L Classic Mesh + Aplha Layer
  • XS – L Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
