A Night at the Theatre

At the Theatre

Magical…

I enjoy the theatre. Not just the shows but the overall experience. There is something magical that happens when the lights dim and the orchestra begins to play. You are whisked away into a story, and for a couple of hours, forget your own worries…

Showstopper…

The outfit today is a real showstopper. The Alexander Mesh Outfit is a beautiful suit that will most definitely turn heads. This is a FREE group gift from Lara Augusta Carnelian. This one-piece suit comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and could be used not only for a night out for a show and dancing, but also for role-play. The Lara AC group is FREE to join. I am also wearing two group gifts from Gabriel. Both the Studded Gloves and the Shearling Shoes are FREE Gifts to group members.

A Rose by any other name….

It is so glad to see that The Rose Theatre is still in existence. This a lovely building with so many intricate details that it feels like a new experience every time I visit. It does feel new, it’s been five years since i last visited.  🙂

Dancing on My Own

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a lovely, relaxing weekend.  While in the midst of our wanderings through the grid, Ripley and I came across a fantastic group gift that I just had to tell you about!  I blogged earlier this month {HERE} about a previous gift from Arcane Spellcaster.  The generous designer has replaced Spring Blue with a free 500L gift card for members of the Arcane Spellcaster AK Creations group.  No, that wasn’t a typo!  If you joined the group after my previous post, switch back to the group tag, teleport over, and claim your very own gift card worth 500L.  If you aren’t yet a member, the join fee is 250L, but you can scoop up some lovely items on a shopping spree!

So Many Possibilities

Typically with group gifts, you don’t get a choice in what item you receive, so I thoroughly enjoyed wandering around the store, and checking out all my options.  The lovely Patricia gown immediately caught my eye, and when I slipped it on, Ripley wagged his tail with approval.  With slender shoulder straps, a lace-covered midsection, and a long, curve-hugging skirt, this dress is pure elegance.  I love the way the translucent overlay adds a lace texture over the trailing skirt.  Also included in the package are gauzy sleeves, and a pearl necklace, which I opted not to wear for my photo.  The gift comes with a HUD with four textures; you can color the entire outfit the same as I have done, or use a different hue for the bra, dress and sleeves.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitted Mesh
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

If Patricia is not your style, there are *plenty* of other options to choose from at Arcane Spellcaster.  I had a tough time deciding which pieces to add to my inventory.  I’m sure you’ll find an outfit that catches your eye.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Nobody’s MALT

Nobody's MALT

Let’s be clear….

…I’m not a MALT (male alt, for those who don’t know). Every so often, one of my fellow bloggers or even myself are asked If I’m a real dude or just another version of (INSERT IN FEMALE BLOGGER’S NAME HERE). This has been happening to me since 2010 and I don’t think it will ever stop. But rest assured, there is a real live boy behind this Pinocchio…

But for those who do have a MALT (or just looking for a nice suit), head on over to SecondSnaps and join the group for FREE pick up your very own FREE MALT Suit. This ensemble consists of shirt and pants combo, a jacket, a vest and a tie. The suit also has comes with a HUD to change the print on the tie and the color of the belt. I also picked up a FREE Pipe from the BOILDEGG display at the TMD Event.

/me wanders off to do manly things that manly men do….

Looking for Rose

Snapshot_003

Where is she?

Coming down the grand staircase, I scan the room. No matter how hard I look, she just isn’t here. It is a big ship, but she can’t be that hard to find. I hope she isn’t down in steerage smoking cigars and playing poker again…

Garden Labyrinth…

I stopped by the The Gacha Garden Event and took a stroll, looking at all the wonderful displays and picking up gifts at the vendor booths. I was lucky enough to find the Dark Blue Dapper Suit, the FREE gift from Labyrinth. This suit comes in standard sizes with the pants coming in both low and high cuff styles. This gift also includes a HUD that you can change the shirt and tie color for multiple looks.To pick up the gifts at this event you need to join the Gimme Gacha Group, but it’s FREE to do so.

Bouquet

One more bouquet_001_001

Bouquet.

Some things just stand out. The Outer Garden is an intentionally white garden created for visitors to admire, photograph, and just take some time to gaze around in. I found it also made my new gown stand out like a spring bouquet in a winter wonderland. This felt apt, as lately it’s been wet and cold here in real life where I live, and I felt like a splash of color on a backdrop of white was sort of fitting and also strangely beautiful.

Pick this bouquet up…

… from Purplemoon Creations. This is the newest free group gift from Purplemoon Creations. The group tag will set you back the small fee of 50L, but Purplemoon Creations is known for being generous with gifts and hunts, making the fee well worth it to be part of the group. This gown alone is worth the fee in my opinion.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

“Despite its dark veins, the transparency of dragonfly’s wings assures me of a pure, innocent world” – Munia Khan

I wanted to go dancing… but some gowns make you feel beautiful enough to fly. This FabFree gift gown from MOoh! reminds me of a dragonfly’s wings… with the beautifully colored bodice, the dark fabric at the hips, and the transparent hem. It’s perfect for a spin around a romantic ballroom, and it’s free with your FabFree group tag.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Belleza – Isis
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

A perfect pairing.

I paired my new dress with another FabFree group gift. This time I made a trip to Chop Zuey and picked up the free Joy Unmasked earrings that are set out for our Fabulous group members.

I did find that the earrings were a bit large for my taste, but the earrings included an easy to use resize script. I just touched the earrings and sized them down to where I wanted them, easy peasy, and I was ready to go. Like the dress from MOoh!, this gift is free too. And you’ll be ready for a night on the town!

Not your mother’s Mr. Roark…

…and I don’t have a sidekick pointing as saying “Da plane, da plane!” But the classic white suit still invokes memories of a sophisticated look with a tropical flair. (For those that remember what I am referring to, I salute you. And for those to young to know, I suggest you Google it.)

I am your host…

The white Etienne Suit is a FREE group gift from Tresor Couture. The suit is an all-in-one outfit so with just one click you can be ready to go. The Tresor Couture group is FREE to join and there are other gifts available as well.

Satin Stunner

Snapshot_007
Hello Fab Folks! Do you have a special night ahead that requires a stunning gown on a budget?  Even if you don’t have an event penciled in your datebook, you never know what might arise and should be prepared just in case you need to dress in a flash!

How Does FREE Sound?

I found this lovely Strapless Gown by London Core at The Free Dove.  Its sleek design may be simple, but the beautiful blue (you know I love blue!!) satin texturing and added silver embellishments really do complete this gown.  In the folder, you’ll find XS-XL mesh sizes along with an alpha layer, should you require it.  You’ll find this gown near the back of The Free Dove in the formal attire section, priced at 0L – as is everything in the shop!

Enjoy your day!

To the Easter Parade

Virtue

We’re late, we’re late….

… I tell her as I grab her hand and pull her out the door. She’s a bit annoyed at me as she forgot to grab her bonnet, but you know how “I’ll be ready in two minutes” turns into twenty…. So down the street we go, headed for the Easter Parade.

Virtuous Sunday

Today we welcome another designer to the FabFree family. Virtue  has joined us and has a FREE gift to to the members that join the Virtue group which was announced [HERE] and can be viewed in the FabFree Group Gift Listing as well. Virtue group members can also pick up a 200L Gift Card at the store. She spent her gift card on the Angela Dress, which wold normally cost 155L, but with the gift card was FREE! And I picked out the Joseph Suit in beige for a spring feel, also normally 155L, but with the gift card was FREE! What a great Easter present. The pose,  Beach Stroll by Bounce This Poses, can be found on the Marketplace for just 1L.

Don’t be like another rabbit I know and be late…. Happy Easter!

Tropical Nights

Tropical Nights

 

Lifestyles Famous and Fortunate…

A beach, a tropical breeze and a bottle of champagne… it can’t get more romantic than this. If you’re trying to impress, you better look your best.  And you can do just that in the Fame & Fortune Hunt 2 gift from Angel DELUXE. The Orlando Outfit  pants come in sizes for the following bodies:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Slink
  • TMP

And both the pants and jacket come in classic XS-SL sizes. I completed the look with the Boston Shoes from A&D Clothing.

Here’s hoping everyone can have a romantic evening on the beach under the stars.
