Spring Flowers

Flower Power_001

April Showers…

… bring flowers! Even if it’s not yet May. 🙂 I picked up the March Group gift from Glitterati which was recently set out for us to enjoy and just fell in love! This pretty flower dress in a tunic style with side-slit sleeves is simply beautiful! You’ll get standard mesh sizes XS – XL plus a quality alpha layer and a system layer thong in black silk and lace (though I just donned a pair of my Maitreya panties).

The group fee for Glitterati is 100L, but there are many past group gifts still available for you to pick up, making it well worth joining and nabbing your tag to pick up this gift (and the past gifts too). Don’t miss out!

A perfect match!

The Springtacious Cart Wash Sale is still going strong, and I found the perfect shoes to match my dress at the Battle Fairy Cart! These Dahlia Heels in butterscotch have beautiful details of flowers on them and for just 10L you get shoes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza in one box! These shoes come in 8 colors, all for just 10L each. As pretty as they are, you will probably want to pick up more than one pair.

The things I do for Love

Snapshot_001

The Honey-do List…

She nagged asked me repeatedly to make her a new vegetable garden on the other side of the horse pasture. The only way to get her to stop nagging asking repeatedly was to finally cave in happily comply with her wishes. I decided I would mow off the patch before breaking up the sod and tilling the ground.  I asked her exactly where she wanted her new garden as I was pushing the mower in the general direction. “Let me show you!” she happily exclaimed, then she perched herself on top of the handle, guiding me like a lookout in a ship’s crow’s nest. <sigh>  The things I do for Love…

Her supervisor attire…

The summer floral Cotton Top by 1Hundred is available at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L.  In the pack you’ll find both the peach that she is displaying and also pink. I was told to mention that  “This is a sweet top that is compatible with system bodies, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Omega, Wowmeh, and Lola.” Her words, not mine.

His slave work attire….

I am appropriately wearing the kwitchurbitchin Novelty Tee by Park Place that I found for just $10L at The Wash Cart Sale. Also found at The Wash Cart Sale is the b/w Tailored Shorts by Dark Water Designs, also just $10L. My Baseball Cap is a FREE subscriber gift from Argrace.

Follow My Lead….

The pose, Follow My Lead, is a FREE group gift from Drunk-Panda. The Drunk Panda group is FREE to join. (After all this work, I want to be a drunk panda too!) The pose does not come with a lawnmower, but I was lucky enough to win the Spring Garden Green Lawnmower from the gacha at {what next}, which is just $50L per play.

On The Fringe

Snapshot_005
Good morning Fabulouses! The Springtacious Cart Sale continues for one more week and we are still finding so many wonderful 10L finds to share with you here on the FabFree Blog! Today I put together a casual boho outfit to show off a couple things from the Loordes of London Cart I think you might like.

Both for 10L!

The Loordes of London “On The Fringe” Outfit including the shirt/sweater combo and the jeans are available in a few different colours for just 10L a set!  I actually couldn’t believe my own eyes when I saw the display.  I clicked on the top, bought the top and then clicked on the jeans and bought the jeans… but what I really did was buy the whole set twice because you get both pieces for 10L and it’s all one long vendor! lol.  Silly me.  I should pay closer attention…

Sizes included:

  • Top & Jeans – XXS-L mesh + alpha layer
  • Top – Slink Physique
  • Top – Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Shine It up

You can also pick up The Lunar Eclipse Sunglasses at the same display for 10L each in a couple of different colours if you want to shine your look up a touch.

A Paisley Day

Paisley Day_001

A 10 Linden deal

I always get excited about the Anachron Cart at the Cart Wash Sale. It’s one of the carts I go to first when checking out the deals, as I know that no matter what the cart is featuring, I will love what is there. And who can pass up a 10 Linden deal? This round of the Cart Wash was no different, with Anachron featuring a beautiful item… their Vintage Paisley Belted Dresses.

A Paisley Day

The Vintage Paisley Belted dress just won my heart with its pretty paisley pattern and classic vintage belt. I actually paired it with a set of Anachron shoes for Slink feet (these were featured many cart washes ago but are now available at the main-store) for a perfect match.

The dress comes in standard sizes as well as sizes to fit the major mesh body types: Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. You’re sure to get a fit that is perfect for you!

Choose from the following colors:

  • Black
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Red
  • Pink
  • Sky

Just Packing The Essentials

FinaleCouture2washsaleWe all have baggage…  It’s how he carries it that matters

He wonders why my bags are always so heavy for even the shortest of trips…  He is constantly teasing me about how I must be packing rock collections, and everything but the kitchen sink, but [THIS IS WHY]!  I need extra outfits for impromptu dunkings and such.  I bet he won’t be complaining when he finds out I packed sammiches too ;).  I might share…

It’s a good thing that there are so many wonderful things for the season upon us at the Springtacious Cart Sale!  I  was lucky that I was able to load my bags up with plenty of 10L finds including this Anika Shorts and Tied Top Set in aqua by Finale Couture.

The Anika Set Includes:

  • Anika Shorts – XXS – L  mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Anika Top – XXS – L mesh, XXS – L fitmesh + Alpha Layer

Fast Break

Fast Break

For the love of the game…

Back in the day, I was a baller, not a bad one either… until the dreaded knee gave out or I had to hang up the jersey for good. At least in Second Life I can continue my love for the game and not have my knee remind me that there are things I can no longer do without consequences.

Full-court press…

You’ll be heating up and hitting all the three’s in the outfit I basketball inspired look from the Emerald Couture cart at The Wash Cart Sale. The MB Sport Teal Outfit was just $10L. Teal not your color? There were other colors to choose from as well. I’m finishing my sporty look with the Vasiforms, a FREE group gift from Vale Koer.  These sneakers are so versatile you’ll never need another pair of kickers.

He drives the lane…get’s inside… he fakes… he goes up… he shoots… he SCORES!

Any Time, Any Place, Any Beach

GheeWash
Hey there Fabulous Readers!  It’s Friday, and I call it “Take the day off and head to the beach day!”.  Anyone else with me?  I suppose I can’t really actually take the day off, but I can virtually go there on my lunch break and live vicariously through my avatar. What do you think?  A visit to Spain perhaps?  I have heard their beaches are lovely!

See The Ghee, Feel The Shine

It was all inspired by this great little dress you can find at The Wash’s Springtacious Cart Sale by Ghee!  There you will find the Leather & Net Micro Mini for just 10L each in 10 eye-catching shades.  They are advertising it as a clubbing dress, however I don’t do a lot of that in Second Life and really liked the idea of using it as beachwear :).  If you are feeling modest like I was today, you can pick up Ghee’s Essential 10pk of Thongs (omega applier) also at The Wash Cart Sale, priced at 50L.

Size Availability & Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus, Freya & Isis
  • TMP

You Fill Me Up

Brandy's Boutique

Running on empty…

I’ve been riding up and down the streets of The Wash looking for deals that I nearly ran out of gas. Lucky for me there is a fueling station on the sim. I’m topping off my tank before I get back out there and find more great deals at The Wash Cart Sale. I am impressed at the selection for guys this round. It makes my heart sing and my linden wallet a little lighter, but only just a little…

Loaded for Leather…

I picked up the Ernie Leather Jacket Outfit for just $10L at the Brandy’s Boutique cart. This mesh outfit is just one piece, right down to the boots. I accented the look with the TopGun Glasses, a FREE group gift from A&D Clothing. Now, it’s time to get back out there and fight the lag crowds for more great deals.

Beachcomber

Beach Comber

Floating  away…

Walking along the beach gives me time to reflect and for just a little while, to clear my mind from the “noise” of the events happening around me. It can be very calming to be alone with just my thoughts and to listen to the ocean waves, the breeze, and the occasional bird song. The smell of the salt water and water droplets on my skin make me feel relaxed, just like a sailboat floating along the currents…

When I’m feeling blue…

I’ve been told that blue is my best color because it matches my eyes, so today I found another Cart Sale find at Wash. I picked up both the Free Bird Casual Tee and the Striped Tailored Shorts for just $10L each at the Dark Water Designs cart. The tee also includes a texture HUD for different colors and each color goes will with the pants. I’m also wearing the Worn Denim All Star Sneakers, a gift from Black Label Menswear to the Menstuff Group. The MenStuff group does have a joining fee of $50L.

The Springtacious Cart Sale at The Wash continues through April 12th.
