It’s All About the Red Dress

Lady in Red

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  In my last post {here}, I told you about a free dress that I picked up over at TRS Designs.  While shopping, I couldn’t help but notice another free group gift, so I’m back to share the Felicia Dress with you today.  As soon as I saw it, I immediately fell in love with its flirty fit and cheery color scheme.

Pretty in Polka Dots

Featuring double lace shoulder straps, a waistline accentuated with crimson band and a flared skirt that falls to the upper thigh, this dress is perfect for a party.   The bodice, which hugs your curves, has a wide v-shaped neckline, and is trimmed in the same red ribbon as the waist and hem.  With its brilliant background and darling dotty pattern, you’re sure to draw admiring glances your way.  The folder includes fitmesh for classic avatars as well as versions for mesh bodies, which makes this a versatile gift.  To grab a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the TRS Designs group, but since it costs nothing to join, you can add this little number to your wardrobe completely for free.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Ripley and I are off to see what other Fabulous Finds we can discover for our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Beach Day

Beach Day

No matter what… I always seem to end up back at the beach. Maybe it’s not my fault. All our wonderful designer here in Second Life are conspiring to give all these things that just say “BEACH” to me. Yeah… that’s it.

Beach Girl

This is my latest beachy dress, “Adah” from Well Made and it’s the current free Group Gift. I don’t actually know if Adah was intended for beachwear but isn’t it just perfect for it? It would also make for a cute top with jeans or shorts. As a dress… it’s very sassy and rather cheeky, if you know what I mean. 😉  You will get a HUD to pick one of five sweet pastel colors if purple isn’t your thing. The Well Made Group is free to join and there are a ton of past gifts set out for members.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Fitmesh – S-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink- Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Posed

My cute simple pose is also free! This is “Yuiki” from M-1 and it’s the free gift at the Pose Fair. Just join the fair’s group, which is free and you can collect the tons of gifts set out at the fair. The Pose Fair runs until May 25st so get over there soon!

Discovering a Pearl

Salt Breezes

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  I hope the day treated you well.  I can’t think of a better way to wrap up the first work day of the week than a stroll along the shore.  The pupster and I decided to meander along the edge of the sea on the NorderNey sim while the salt breeze playfully ruffled our hair.  Well, I guess there is one thing better….to be walking along the shore in a brand new outfit that you picked up for free.

A Touch of Serendipity

I’m a huge fan of maxi skirts, in RL and in SL, and when I was at The Free Dove gathering free hair to share in our group post {HERE}, this gorgeous Iced Pearl outfit from Luxe Paris caught my eye.  Featuring a dainty tank top with a pretty floral pattern and a sweeping broomstick skirt that is generously cut, this free gift offers simple elegance that can carry you from a walk along a beach to a summer’s eve date.  Pale blue strands in the top coordinate with the glittering waistband of the skirt.  The generous designer packed versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars into the folder, and also included coordinating flat sandals, which you can’t see due to my pose.  To pick up a copy of this gem for yourself, you need to be a member of The Free Dove group, but there is no join fee.  Just click the vendor and you are good to go for an ocean side stroll yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layers)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Sandals for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink as well as an unrigged version

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Denim Days

Denim Days

We finally made it to the weekend, time to kick off the business attire and get comfortable. Last Monday, I showed you the current Group Gift from Complex. But while I was there, I saw they also had a past group gift still available. So I wanted to show it off as well.

Denim Days

My denim jacket and hoodie are a past Group Gift from Complex but they are still out for pick up with your free group tag. They come as a set with a HUD to change the color of the hoodie and the color of the inside of the hood. I found the set to be very well built and fits like a charm.

Sizes Included

  • One size FittedMesh

Hello Warm Weather!

Take Me Away

Hello there, Fabulous Readers, and Happy Sunday!  Higher temperatures have hit my part of the world, and it’s prompting me to seek warm weather outfits in SL as well as RL.  Today, I’m excited to tell you about a summery set that you can pick up for free, just for being members of Fabulously Free in SL.

Casually Cute

Featuring a beige crop top with a slipped strap, which allows your shoulder to play peek a boo, and an adorable belted floral mini skirt, the Erika outfit from #bye will allow you to soak in that lovely late spring weather in style.  The belt, which coordinates beautifully with the shirt,  hangs across your hips at a jaunty angle and is accented with a large, square, two-pronged buckle.  I love the soft color scheme of this outfit!  The generous designer included versions for mesh body types as well as fitmesh for classic avatars.  To pick up a free copy for yourself, activate your Fab Free Group tag, teleport to the shop and click the vendor.

Sunny Day

Sunny day chasing my clouds away

It’s another perfectly sunny sunshiney day here on the grid! So I took off to the beach… one of my favorite beaches here in SecondLife : Kona Beach and Surfing. But you can’t hit the sand without something fun to wear. I had to hit the Market Place first and boy, did I grab up a couple of bargains!

Teeny Weeny Bikini

First, my new black bikini. Not only is Kona a great beach, it has some great shopping too. This is the Women’s Black Bikini from Kona and it’s just one little Linden on the Market Place. It’s 100% appliers with a couple of little add on mesh bows. Not only do you get the black bikini, you also get a white version too.

Appliers Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink
  • TMP

Over it all

While I was browsing the Market Place, I ran across this super cute mesh cover up dress from FurtaCor for just one more little Linden! This is the ‘Isadora’ lace dress and I think it’s the perfect little beach cover up. I guess you could think of a special someone you might like to model it for…. without the bikini….  *ahem* anyway…  Isadora comes with a HUD to choose from sixteen colors and patterns. Isadora also comes with a pair of high heel sandals to complete your look.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Sizes of Sandals

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

As with all specials and promos, these two items may not last long.  So if you’d like to add them to your closet, don’t delay!

Take it Easy

Taking it Easy

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are heading out to go camping for a few days, and plan to just take it easy this holiday weekend.  Whatever your plans are, we hope you have a wonderful weekend yourselves.

Traveling Companions

These comfy casual Yareli pants from Wellmade are coming with us on the trip.  Best of all, I picked them up completely for free, just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group!  With lots of attention to details such as the zippered cuffs, a ribbed design for ease of movement around the knees, and zippered pockets in the front, these pants are sure to please.  I really like the tan colored botanical pattern, which is scattered across the blue background – it’s just so pretty!  If you’d prefer a different color scheme, the designer thoughtfully included a HUD which allows you to change to a darker green background with pale blue flowers.   Versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars are included in this free gift.  To pick up a copy for yourself, activate the Fab Free group tag, teleport to the shop and click the vendor, which is way up high on the wall of gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Isis and Venus
  • Ebody Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Perfect Pair

You're My Best Friend

Happy Monday, Fabulous Readers!  I know, I know……it’s a Monday, so how good could it be?  Well, how about a new dress and fancy heels for a grand total of 35 Linden dollars?  My best friend helped me discover this budget friendly duo, which sure made my day!

“I Must Have Flowers, Always, Always”

Monet said it, and I have to admit I agree.  What better way to welcome spring than by wearing a cheerful floral print?  Down at the Spring Has Sprung sale at The Wash, I spotted the lovely Lana dress at the Baci Shop cart for just 10 Linden dollars.  Featuring an off-the-shoulder design, a translucent shawl on the bodice and a generous hem, this frock is sure to be a warm weather favorite.  Although there are no sizes specifically dedicated to classic avatars, there is an alpha layer in the folder and all the mesh body versions are labeled fitmesh, so I think it would probably work for girls who are rocking a classic body type.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Alpha Mask

Chase Your Dreams…In High Heels, Of Course!

My sexy heels came from the Oh Pair! cart at The Wash and cost just 25 Linden dollars.  They feature criss-crossed straps, which add a touch of elegance and the most adorable bows with tassels in the back.  Although I chose black to coordinate with the ebony background color of my dress, the designer generously included a texture change HUD that is packed with 24 colors and 2 choices for the metal portion.  You can mix and match these colors because you have the opportunity to individualize the different components of the shoes such as the main color, the strings, the tassels, the pearls, the heel and the sole.  It’s like getting a whole closet full of heels, which makes them very versatile!  The folder includes shoes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.

Ripley and I are off to see what other Fabulous Finds we can discover to share with you all.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Blossom by Blossom, the Spring Begins

Spring Flowers

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I made a return trip to the Spring Has Sprung sale over at The Wash and discovered a complete outfit for just 50L.  The Rosa Outfit from the Finale Couture cart packs plenty of springtime appeal with its delicate aqua background and floral pattern.

Pretty Posies

Featuring a curve-hugging design, delicate spaghetti thin shoulder straps, and vertical piping, this frock flatters your figure.  I love how it leaves your shoulders mostly bare to soak up sun rays!  Its skirt falls almost to knee length.  In addition to versions for mesh avatars, the folder also includes fitmesh in a variety of sizes and an alpha layer for classic avatars, so there’s something for everyone.  Not only do you get this lovely dress, but you also get coordinating heels and a double stranded necklace with a resizer – all for just 50 Linden dollars.  The sale continues until April 10th, so there’s plenty of time left to find some budget-friendly bargains.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet

Until my next post, happy shopping!
