I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are as ready as I am for some fall colors.  Today, Ripley and I are bringing you a little slice of fall foliage as we share a couple of budget friendly Fabulous Finds.  I hope you like them!  Before I get into the details, if you are looking for a beautifully decorated autumn landscape, I’d highly recommend a visit to the Cherishville sim.  The puster and I really enjoyed the oranges, browns and other fall colors when we were there. They provided a wonderful contrast for the dark hues of my outfit.

A Great Hat Speaks for Itself

First up, my cheeky cap is a gift from the Inventory Trends store.  With a darling bow and just enough of a brim to shield your eyes from the sun, the Velma hat adds a functional and cute finishing touch to my ensemble.  Best of all, I picked it up for free, just by being a member of the Third Life Group.  The group has no join fee, so I didn’t have to pay a single Linden dollar for my newest fashion accessory.  Although the hat cannot be resized, I was able to move it around on my head and I resized my hair underneath to get the fit I was looking for.  The thoughtful designer tucked a HUD inside with three texture options so you can coordinate with different color schemes.  In addition to the black I am sporting, you could also choose red or a dark brown.  While you’re in the shop, you might want to try picking up one of the fourteen other gifts set out on the wall for members of various groups.  I’ve included a close up photo below so you can get a better look at Velma.

Velma

There’s Something Sexy…

about a girl with an attitude and a pair of leather pants.  The mesh black leather pants from the Bang Bang shop on the Marketplace pick up where Velma left off in the attitude department.  With a soft sheen, zippered pockets and a skin tight fit, you will feel super skinny, sexy and toasty warm when you wear this wardrobe essential.  No chilly autumn breeze will work its way through these pants!  Best of all, with a price tag of a mere 10 Linden dollars, you’ll hardly notice the difference in your bank account balance after your purchase. The folder includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars, so there is something for everyone tucked inside.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatiblity:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

I’m so Fancy

I'm so Fancy

It’s Sunday Funday and for some reason I’m spending it in a pink classroom.  It’s not quite back to school time yet here in my part of the world, but you to always get that little hint of excitement before it’s time for people to head back to the books.  Maybe it’s the thrill of the new school supplies you can pick up.  I always was partial to a new set of pencils… or a new back to school outfit!  I think I may have settled on a cute and somewhat Clueless-inspired look!

She’s Psycho

Psycho Barbie have all sorts of new fun goodies for group members!  If you join their group for 50L, you can get your little mitts on these sweet socks and garters as their most recent group gift (there are a whole bunch of other gifts there too!).  I also got my cute knotted dress there (it comes with several different texture options, all featuring slightly creepy cute designs) by hanging out by the Lucky Boards and waiting until my letter came up!  I didn’t have to stand around too long til I grabbed this dress, but there are a bunch of other fun outfits too!

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

You think I’d spend a fortune on an outfit?  AS IF!  (Clueless reference…just sayin…)

Bring on Those Dog Days of Summer

Dog Days of Summer

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued our journey along a hunt path on the grid.  This time, inspired by Love’s, Juli’s and Pru’s recent posts, we checked out the Beached Bunny Hunt and headed over to Dragonmoon Designs.  There, we discovered an outfit perfect for the hot, lazy afternoons, and it cost just one little Linden dollar.

I Long for Those Sunny Days!

The Sunny Daze outfit features a buttoned tank top that reaches to about belly button level and coordinating shorts which have the cutest little ties dangling down.  In addition to versions for classic as well as mesh bodies, the folder includes a texture change HUD with four color options each for the shorts and top.  You can opt to color both the same as I have done or use different hues for more variety.  The tank and shorts are worn separately so you can mix and match with items from your wardrobe as well.  I really like the detailed buttons and the realistic wrinkles in the fabric where it is gathered in the shorts on the sides.  To pick up a copy for yourself, all you need to do is locate the beach pail hidden somewhere in the shop, then pay the 1 Linden prize fee.  It’s well worth the effort!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes separate alpha layers for top and shorts)
  • Belleza
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Free Flowing Locks

I picked up my new hairstyle for free as a Midnight Mania prize over at Olive Hair.  The Therra hairstyle prize is a full fatpack of colors (including streaked and non streaked varieties) and features a center part and thick luxurious hair pulled forward over your shoulders.  The Midnight Mania prizes over at Olive rotate through, so although the Therra style is not on display for today’s prize, there is another lovely long style for you to try your luck on.  If you check back another day, Therra may once again be featured soon.  There is no group required, and every day I’ve gone back, the target has been met, so it’s an easy way to add some new free styles to your collection!

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Pure of Heart


Pure of Heart

There is magic if you believe in it. There are also freebies galore if you know where to look. The current round of Hot Summer 35L Sales is an excellent place to pick up quite a few free gifts. You’ll find clothing, poses, and even some beachy furniture. Also, the items at the booths are either 35 lindens each or 50% off regular price. The event runs now through July 31st, and you will need to join the 35L Sunday group. However, the group is free to join. The hair and dress I’m wearing are both free gifts at the Hot Summer 35L Sales event.

The Hair

This cute pinned up hairstyle is a free Hot Summer 35L Sales event gift by DeVon. Just don’t forget that 35L Sunday group tag. The hairstyle comes in the single ash blond shade shown. I also want to mention that as far as I could figure, it cannot be resized, it can however be repositioned.

P.S. The DeVon Gift also includes a brown shoulder bag!

The Dress

This pretty little dress by Melt is another of the many free gifts at the Hot Summer 35L Sales event. It comes with a color change hud that lets you pick from 6 jewel tones and black, for 7 total color choices. It comes in several sizes, and has an alpha layer making it suitable for classic avatars.

Getting Some Exercise Around the Grid

You Me and the Sea

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your July is going well.  Ripley and I had a great time camping up in the mountains.  Even though we came back to sizzling temperatures, it feels good to be home.  The pupster didn’t want to eat much while we were away, and I was worried he had lost weight.  He actually gained a pound, so we decided the best thing to do was to hit the hunt trail in SL to get some exercise.  That still counts as exercise, right? 😉

Around the Grid

As we traversed the SL universe, we stopped by Nuts Inc, and Ripley discovered the hot air balloon hunt icon fairly quickly.  One nice thing about the Around the Grid Hunt is if you are short on time, you can pay 25 Linden dollars for the prize, or invest a bit of energy and discover the hidden hunt object and pay just 1 Linden dollar.  Thankfully, with the pupster’s help, I paid a very budget-friendly 1 Linden dollar for this adorable Sari outfit.  I just love the combination of blue and rusty hues in both the top and skirt.  This little number features a cropped top with a tasseled hemline and a mini skirt with two slits to make moving around a breeze.  Although I chose not to wear them, the hunt prize also included sandals and a backpack.  This outfit is compatible with classic and mesh body avatars.  The hunt runs until September 30th, so you have plenty of time to uncover some fabulous prizes.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes separate alpha layers for skirt and top)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Tonic

Beach Hair

My short windswept locks are perfect for a day at the beach.  I picked this new hairstyle up for free as a group gift from Barberyumyum.  It comes only in this sun-kissed blonde color, but I just love it!  With the enclosed HUD, you can adjust the size of the hair to get just the right fit.  The folder includes rigged and non-rigged versions as well as an alpha layer for your scalp.  To add this free gift to your inventory, you need to be a member of the Double Paradox group, but it’s completely free to join.  There are five other gifts set out for group members, too.

Until my next post, happy hunting!

There are some designers here on the Grid that are “Go-To” shops. Not only are the items well built but they’re creative and fun. You can count on their Hunt prizes to be awesome. MOoh! is certainly one of those designers

Jessy Girl

Just look at this super cute little beachy dress, “Jessy”. This is the 1L prize for the Beached Bunny Hunt. I love the aloha floral pattern! And it’s cute and flirty without being too reveling. Plus, you get a HUD with six great colors! I think it’s perfect for your next beach party or backyard BBQ.
