A Street Fair Find

Independance Day

Street Fairs are still in!

I took a stroll down The Old Fashion 4th of July Street Fair, which is going on until July 9th, and was thrilled to see all the free gifts (woot free!) as well as the discount deals and low cost items. There were many free items I could have shown off for you, but in the end, I decided I would spend a little bit of linden to don the one thing that really caught my eye!

Ready for Independence Day!

At the G Sloane booth, I picked up this Mesh Flag Wrap Dress for just 10L! It comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a quality alpha as well and fits like a dream. (There were several other discount items at this booth that were just as pretty as well as a free gift basket!) I couldn’t resist the pretty wrap style, and the price was just right.

Another Hair Fair gift.

As I showed you in my post here, I went cam shopping for gift hair at the Hair Fair again. Don’t forget to check out my tip on how to get rid of that pesky issue that keeps you from selecting things that are far away. My post here tells you the special trick.

This time, I picked up this pretty hair from DUE called Crystal. It only comes in the one color (brunette) but it was such a lovely pony tail style that I didn’t mind deviating from my usual silver colored hair. And it was free too!

I hope you have a great day gearing up for the 4th of July tomorrow!

The New Color of Sexy

Shine

I’m still relaxing in my comfy chair. I’ve spent the morning sorting through old journals of my grandfather’s from World War II. He’s been gone for several years now, but I miss him and it’s been nice to travel down memory lane and learn a little more about his life. I haven’t changed out of my pajamas yet either… this great set of wine colored lingerie.

The new color of sexy…

Ashmoot has been putting out beautiful gifts each month, including this Long Shirt that is still out that Love blogged here. This month was no exception and you can pick up this gorgeous applier lingerie in burgundy as a free group gift (the group is free to join). It comes in appliers for System bodies, Omega, Maitreya, and Slink. I really fell in love with the lacy neckline and lace bodysuit of the one piece.

The Hair Fair is here!

The Hair Fair started yesterday! And we all know that not only does that mean money is raised for a great cause, but that creators are generous with lots of amazing and wonderful gifts for visitors. You can visit the Hair Fair website for more information here.

I picked up my luscious locks by enVogue by stopping at one of the cam shopping locations on the outskirts of the Hair Fair. These have been set up to allow you to cam shop. There is less lag and you can just cam in and look in the booths to pick out the items that you want.

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

I cammed away while I was in the corner of the Foils Cam Sim and happened to see the enVogue booth and picked up the gift there for just 1L. When I opened it, I was thrilled with the gift inside. This style, called Beyonce, includes a hud for a fatpack of colors and has a beautiful flow and realistic texture. It was well worth my camming and crowd fighting time!

These Pearls

Those Pearls

It’s lush here…

I’ve been exploring more and more of the Elysion sim and it’s simply lush… though be warned it is adult themed, you have to be a member, and joining costs a fee. But I’m enjoying my exploring. I like to dress up for my explorations into the unknown corners of this paradise… and I decided to check out the Hashtag Event to see if I could find something special for my journey today.

I happened upon…

… the perfect dress. This little pink number by Wellmade is… well… wellmade! It hugs all your curves and has a sexy cut out and has the sort of shimmer of latex that invites compliments but almost looks like faux leather too… best yet, it was a gift for only 7L. It was among many other gifts (almost every booth had a gift that cost from 0 to 10L!) and it made visiting Hashtag well worth the trip.

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Another gift from Moondance…

In my post here, I showed you a free gift from Moondance Boutique. I remembered that they had another gift out for SL frees & Offers members and stopped by to pick it up. The free Hanna Jewelry Set includes a texture change pearl and earrings set that allows you to change the 3 sets of pearls on the necklace and earrings each separately with many different color combinations to get just the right look. It was a great free addition to my outfit to go exploring a lush sim like Elysion.

Do You Believe in Magic?

Do You Believe in Magic?

Happy Wednesday, Fabulous Readers! Today, Ripley and I bring your our final find from The Cart Wash Sale.  You’ll find my lovely White Magic frock at the Baci Shop.  I know, I know, you’re probably thinking “Time to get your eyes checked, Kat – that dress is NOT white!”  I felt like being the Lady in Red today, so I used the texture change HUD, which is tucked inside the package, to alter the hue of my dress to this deep crimson.  If red is not your color, you have 8 other options available to you, including white.  Featuring side cut outs, fastened with buckle straps, and a generously flared skirt, this summer dress will keep you pleasantly cool on the hottest afternoon.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

I hope the rest of your week goes smoothly for you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Wild Rose

Rose

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  I’m taking a quick break from housecleaning in RL to tell you about another discovery Ripley and I made at The Cart Wash.  The Wild Rose top from Mystic Dragon Designs features a floral print across a white background, a halter style neckline, and an asymmetrical open front, which offers a sexy peek at your belly button.   I really love the romantic, feminine look of this summery shirt, and you can scoop it up for only 10L at The Wash.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Venus
  • Werwolf

Sadly, the dog hair (thanks, Ripley!) is not vacuuming itself up, so I need to return to my cleaning.  Perhaps I should follow Serena’s example and pick up the Clean-o-Mat.  It sure would come in handy!  Or maybe you can train a dog to use a vacuum cleaner?  I wonder…. Until my next post, happy shopping!

I wasn’t exactly dressed for adventuring…

We all bleed the same color. 1

I wasn’t exactly dressed for adventuring… after all I was in my 10L Emerald Couture Dk Olive Bloom dress from the Cart Wash Sale with its asymmetrical hem and floral material…

Even if it did come in all the following sizes…

  • Standard mesh XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS-XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

… I wasn’t exactly dressed for adventuring… wearing my 10L Emerald Couture Dk Olive heels from the Cart Wash Sale (which fit Slink, TMP, Maitreya, and Belleza feet)… but that didn’t stop me.

I knew when I saw the sign on that airplane that someone had spray painted, “Do epic shit” that it was time to step out of my comfort zone and step into adventure… even if I was wearing a dress. So I crossed through the broken down fence to the crash site and wandered in.

We all bleed the same color. 2

Once inside, I explored the wreckage. It was littered with “treasures” and things I wanted to see. There was some graffiti that caught my eye and seemed important to remember: “We all bleed the same colour.” Yeah… isn’t that the truth. So many forget that in their everyday lives as they walk down the street. It’s a good motto to live under the moon by.

It had me fingering my new free texture change Lotus Moon necklace from Moondance Boutique. It was part of a matched set that included earrings too… as well as a bunch of beautiful rings, but I’d left the rings at home. I managed to get it as a group gift (the group was free to join) and I was tickled pink about it…

… even if I wasn’t dressed for adventure.

The Digging-est Dog

The Digging-est Dog

Hello Fabulouses!  After our disaster at the Hobbiton sim, in which a certain someone, who shall remain nameless, excavated a flower garden without permission, Ripley and I decided to spend the rest of the weekend at a “dig-friendly” environment – the beach.  As you can see in my photo, the sand was soon flying after being churned by furious paws, but I didn’t have to worry about the untimely death of roses.

Perfect for a Hot Summer Day

Clad in another of our Cart Wash Sale discoveries, I was ready to enjoy some sun.  For only 10L each, my Hot Summer Top and Shorts from Marquesse made the perfect, budget-friendly, casual outfit for a day at the shore.  My cropped top featured a knitted pattern, spaghetti straps, and sexy criss-cross lacing.  The floral texture of my shorts echoed the raspberry hue of my top, and contained plenty of pockets to hold essentials for an afternoon outing.  I like the realistic details of the button fly closure, seam stitching, and rivets.  I could see pairing these shorts with a white, lavender or light blue tank for a bit of variety.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Ebody
  • Venus
  • TMP
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Tonic Fine
  • Tonic Curvy

I’m going to hang out here, relax for the rest of the day, and maybe catch some z’s in the shade of a palm tree.  Ahhh, this is the life!  Until my next post, happy shopping!
