Deep Greens and Blues Are the Colors I Choose

Summer Day

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are back from our camping trip.  We had beautiful blue skies and no snow this time!  It was nice to get away, but it also feels so good to be home again.  The first thing we did this morning was to make a return visit to Ajuda SL Brasil to do a little budget friendly shopping.  We found a super cute casual outfit to share with you on this Monday.

Earthy Greens and Blues

I guess I have green on my mind since the pupster and I were out in nature for the past 6 days.  When I saw the Bettina Top and Shorts set from Cynderella’s as a free gift, I knew it was destined for my inventory!  With its loose fitting verdant crop top and pale denim shorts, this is just the right get up for an easy summer day.  The top features spaghetti style shoulder straps and a vibrant botanical print.  A coordinating floral motif and lace trim on the jeans echoes the theme, and a sturdy belt provides a finishing accessory.  The folder includes fitmesh for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh body types.  Best of all, you can pick it up for free, with no group membership required! I appreciated the fact that the designer included a note card certifying that the outfit is an original creation donated to Ajuda Brasil to be offered as a gift to residents.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes separate alpha layers for top and shorts)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I hope your work week is off to a wonderful start.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Also, the top and shorts can be worn separately.

Party On

Party On

I love summertime with all the little farmer’s markets and fairs popping up all over. Both here in real life and on the Grid. I found a neat little fair that’s New-To-Me: The Party People Fair. There’s lots of great venders and things to buy but there’s also a Hunt! A free/0L per prize hunt! If you like a good party, anything from a tea party to a Birthday party and everything in between can be found at the Party People Fair.

Soft Pink

My favorite hunt prize I found ( in a potato, of all things) is this softly patterned “Ethnic Blouse” from Amato. Speaking of New-To-Me, Amato will be one I’m checking out more after the fair if everything is as nice as this blouse!

Sizes Included

  • Mesh Sizes XXS-L

Among the Wild Posies

Jumpsuit

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Sunday Evening to you!  The pupster and I found two free items to share with you tonight and help get your Monday off to a wonderful start.

Let’s Jump Right In!

I picked up my Donna Jumpsuit over at The Free Dove as a gift from DM.  This off-the-shoulder style features a loose bodice section layered over a slim waistline, which really flatters your figure.  The trousers portion of this outfit are comfortably loose.  I am quite fond of this pale pink floral pattern, but if that’s not your cup of tea, the designer tucked a HUD inside the folder with two other texture options.  Versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars are included as well.  To add this suit to your wardrobe, you do have to be a member of The Free Dove group, but there is no join fee, so it’s completely free.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
    • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
    • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
    • Maitreya
    • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Daisy

That Finishing Touch

With the complex flowery texture on my clothing, I wanted to keep my accessories simple, yet beautiful.  I headed over to Poeme and collected another free group gift, the Daisy Bead Earrings.  These delicate baubles feature your choice of silver or gold metal and six colors for the beads.  Of course, I went with pink to coordinate with my jumpsuit, but with the included texture HUD, I will be able to customize these earrings to match a variety of outfits.  To add the Daisy Bead Earrings to your SL jewelry box, you’ll need to be a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, but since there is no join fee, you can pick up these gems for free.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Just Breathe

Just Breathe

Men’s wear has been somewhat… scarce of late. So I was rather pleased to find a really well made gift set out for the men of Second Life by Breath. There’s also a second jacket and shirt set out that is a mere 50L. I, in fact, helped myself to both generous offerings. You won’t even need a group tag for this one. Thanks, Breath.

Just breathe

There are four versions of the “BB Jacket” set outside on the wall of the Breath store. But at 0L, you can pick up all of them. Each one has a different sleeve design or color. Take a moment, while you’re there, to browse the store. I found the prices to be reasonable and the selection was great.

Sizes Included

  • One size fits all

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
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

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
