The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale – Dark Water Designs

Dark Water Designs is one of those designers that never fails to impress me.

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale - Dark Water Designs

And the Cart this designer has set up for us at the Wash’s sale is no exception. I had no trouble picking out what I wanted to show this time. Not because everything wasn’t awesome but because when I saw the Lolita Jumper I was in love! It’s a simple thing but the details are amazing. I love the color, the pattern … just everything. You get the five standard Mesh sizes and the alpha.

Dark Water Designs- CART

Dark Water Designs has some really cool items set out for our guys, too. I’m really taken with the graffiti jeans.

You have until September 16th to get your shopping on here at the Wash!

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale – Rowena’s Designs

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale is now in full swing!

cartsale_001

There are so many nifty things this round that I can hardly pick what to show off first! I picked Rowena’s Designs lovely ‘Lilian’ complete set because it just is so stunning. Plus it’s not often I see an entire set that I love every single piece like this one. I’m wearing the Lilian Dress in the five Mesh sizes, plus the shoes for SLink High Feet plus the jewelry set. So that’s just 30L for an entire evening outfit! The jewelry set is a particular bargain, you get the ring, the bracelet, the necklace and the earrings AND a Hud to change up the metal, the accent color and the gem stones.  Both the dress and the shoes come with a color change HUD with six options. This is a LOT of outfit for very little out of pocket.

Your Friday Hunt Report

Fi_s_Hunts_-_African_Summer_Hunt_-_POSTER_IMAGEGood morning Fabulous Friends! August is drawing to a close and a bunch of hunts will be taking their final bows this weekend, so if you have been procrastinating, it’s time to get MOVING. All that free (or nearly free) stuff is laying around just waiting for you to come by and pick it up, but time grows short.

There will, of course, be some shiny new hunts to partake of starting on Tuesday, September 1st, but I’ll get in to telling you about those when the time comes.

I hope that all of you are enjoying the hunts. Myself… I need to get out on more of them too… or at least start unpacking all the boxes from the last few hunts, which is almost as fun as Christmas morning!

New to hunting? Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Something Steam(Punk)y!

Something Steam(punk)y

I’d never miss a chance to try out a new character, cosplay, or fantasy! Though I admit, I’ve never done steampunk. So when I saw this amazing hat at the NSP Florals Cart at the Wash Sale (and only 10L — Woot!), I was all a twitter! It was a chance to put together a steam punk look with a great accessory from top quality designer and once I had the top hat on, I was thrilled!

I love the combination of rich fabrics, florals, and metal feathers! Then it was off to adventuring at a steampunk sim! (If you have time, check out New Babbage — I linked you below… very cool place!)

But don’t be mistaken! The NSP Floral Cart at the Wash Sale is not just steampunk! Oh no! Versatility is the name of the game! This creative creator is offering up several gorgeous vintage hats (with the hair included!) as well as beautiful floral accessories that could easily finish off a stunning modern gown or top off a Gothic vampire’s ebony tresses.

The possibilities are endless and at only 10L per purchase, you won’t want to pass any of these beauties up!

A few more days of Summer sun

Boy… that was one long weekend! I hope it was a great one for all you Fabulous Folks.

BRii_001

Happily, I got a minute or two to satisfy my SL Hunt desires at Brii’s Underground Wear. This is the 1L White and Flowers Hunt ad it runs until August 31st.  There are ten sweet summery outfits hidden in  little clusters of flowers all over the store to find. Each prize is only 1 little linden but you get the outfit, the shoes and a make-up on a tattoo layer. I chose to show my favorite prize today: the Elsie. Again, you get the dress in five standard Mesh sizes, the shoes for SLink High Feet and a tattoo layer make-up.

I don’t want to let go of summer just yet so leave me here in my garden and my summery sundress for a little longer.

Glitterati Garden

Glitterati GardenIt’s Friday and I’m so glad the weekend is here! I’ve been away due to Real Life getting in the way, demanding thing that it is, and I feel like I was gone a month. It is nice to be back, consequently I’ve got a lot of great things I want to share with you. There are lots of great group gifts out this month, this elegant black gown is the August group gift from Glitterati. The gown from Glitterati comes in standard mesh sizes with a matching alpha layer. One thing I noticed right away is the way the gown’s texture seems to change color depending on the lighting, which I think adds a touch of whimsy to this pretty gown. The Glitterati group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens. This gown alone is worth the join fee in my opinion, get it while you still can! Glitterati Garden 1One of the great things about a solid black gown is you can add pops of color with your accessories. I love the style of this earring and necklace jewelry set from Indulge Temptation. The FREE set is called “Arabesque” and has a lovely filigree look to the metal parts, complimented by bright teal drops. The “Arabesque” set is the August group gift at Indulge Temptation. Included is a hud so you can re-size the jewelry to suit your avatar. There is a one time join fee of 50 lindens for the Indulge Temptation group, however I think the jewelry set is more than worth the fee.

Now that we have the gown, and the jewelry, here’s something lovely to go underneath. One more awesome August group gift, This lingerie set is from Maniac Store.

Maniac ElephanteThere are several FREE group gifts out right now at Maniac Store. This black lace lingerie set is just one of them. The set is really pretty on, and comes with tons of appliers as well as system layers. The list of appliers includes TMP, Banned, Maitreya, Lolas Tango, Lolas Muse, *Linc, Lush, Lena, Perfect Bum, Brazillia Doll, and Slink. Needless to say there are lots of options for wearing this sexy August gift. The Maniac Store does have a one time fee of 10 lindens, however as I mentioned before there are several gifts out as well as lucky chairs. Lastly, like the 3 poses in the above photo? These too are an August gift, this time from Elephante. You’ll find these fun static poses in the Elephante subscribo for FREE!

Your Friday Hunt Report

hunt SL final addicted to applier signGood Morning Fabulous Hunters! It’s hard to believe that Labor Day (the sort of official end of of the summer here in the USA) is almost upon us. There’s lots to be happy about in the hunt world this weekend here in the last bit of summer vacation.

So take a gander at all these fine hunts and find the one that’s just right for you. Your bulging inventory will thank you for all the free (or very nearly free) stuff before it’s time to head back to school.

Formal… with a chance of dragons

Hello and happy Tuesday, my FabFree folks!

tiffanyjpg_001

After several posts of cute and casual, I was starting to feel the need to remind myself what classy and elegant felt like. And as luck would have it. I found just the thing while I was shopping, of all places…. the Thrift Shop. If you haven’t been ‘in the know’, the Thrift Shop is a regular event and this round began on August 8th and runs until August 29th. That’s 22 days of 50% ( or so ) off the gathered designers and two massive rows of Gacha machines for us addicts.

I found this gorgeous purple evening gown in Tiffany’s Designs’ booth not for 50% off… but for FREE. This is the Lavish Mesh dress in purple and it’s free for everyone, no group needed. You get the five standard sizes and all this elegance.

The other thing I had to have from the Thrift Shop was this wonderful little dragon ear cuff. I hesitated to show him off with such a formal dress then I thought, yeah… that’s something I’d wear together in real life…. ‘Cause you know, you can’t get too stuffy when you’re going formal. ;)
tiffanyjpg_002
This is the ‘Dragovar Ear Cuff’ from Ecru and he is only 10L at the Thrift Shop. The little dragon comes with both a right ear and a left ear version and a HUD with eight metallic colors. He is clearly meant to be worn with ‘human’ type ears but a little futzing with the edit controls and I had him fit to my own pointy ears easily enough. I have a feeling I won’t be taking him off any time soon.

You have until the 29 of August to go check out the Thrift Shop so don’t delay!

Envy Me…

She’s classic, elegant… and the life of the party. The gentlemen all want to dance with her… and the ladies all envy her…

Envy Me [1]

And if you stop by Junbug‘s quick as can be, you can pick up the Lady Crawley gown in Envy, and be envied too, because Junbug is celebrating 10,000 Facebook likes and 4,500 Group Members with this lovely formal mesh gown as their in-store gift!

Envy Me [2]

… and she has that certain touch of je ne sais quoi that makes those in the room pause… perhaps stare…

Or maybe it’s the breathtaking jewelry that bedecks her slender neck and wrists… which can be yours as well if you drop by Chop Zuey and pick up their newest Group Gift! This To The Daisy Grey Set (which includes a stunning necklace, ring, bracelets, and earrings) is breathtakingly detailed and perfect for any formal occasion!

Here’s how you too can step out in style…

SL Weddings – A Sure Sign That You Ignore Your Friends’ Advice!

tiftux2_001

Weddings…on Second Life you only get married six or seven times a year. If that were the case in real life, no one would rent tuxes. They would be part of our regular wardrobe. I know, sometimes SL marriages do work, occasionally in spectacular fashion. It’s that hope that keeps a lot of us going, and going, and going- (much to the dismay of our friends). My point is: the longer you are here on Second Life, the more impossible it is not to become partnered in some way to someone you care about. When that happens, you must have something fantastic to wear.

Tiffany’s Designs have recently changed their monthly group gift. Previously, it was a beautiful white suit that I wear often when I wander around the grid. This time, they have outdone even that gorgeous garment! The Mae Men’s Wedding Suit *Paris consists of two pieces meant to be worn together, so it is simple to wear. Each part is offered in five Mesh sizes to help make the fit just plain easy. The first piece is the jacket, which is black and nicely textured, complete with long tails. The remaining piece is the rest of the tux including the shirt, tie, pants and waistcoat in one combined garment. When worn, it is an elegant tux that will turn heads, whether you are standing at the altar or slow dancing with someone you adore. The Tiffany’s Designs group is not free (it will set you back 50L), but the quality of the gifts make it well worth it!

tiftux3_001

This August is another great month to be a guy on Second Life. Currently, running is the fourteen store Fashion Play For Men Hunt. The eyes I choose to wear with this tux are Fashion Eyes – Charm, the Fashion Play For Men Hunt prize from Inkheart . They are light gray with a slight greenish tint. They look pretty realistic and I am very pleased with them. One nice thing about Inkheart . is they participate in a lot of hunts and are quite generous with their gifts. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt prizes cost 1L each and are expected to be out all month. As if that’s not enough, starting August 29th is the Men’s Only Hunt 6 which should have over sixty participating merchants. I can hardly wait!

Second Life, where romance blooms all year around! (Amazing how fertile the soil is when so much fertilizer is laid down first.) Seriously, part of SL is the romance and mystery of blossoming relationships, and if you choose not to take the time for a romantic dance every so often, you are missing out on a great deal of fun. Go pick up some seriously dashing clothes and give it a shot. Your Second Life just might become even more amazing. That’s it for now, my friends. See you on the grid.—–WHC Riler
