Crossing That Bridge

Crossing That Bridge
Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  Thank goodness, it’s almost the weekend 🙂  It’s been a bit chilly where Ripley and I are in RL, and that has me longing for spring.  I found the perfect warmer-weather mini dress as a free group gift for members of the Mesh Body Friends Group.  When I saw the cerulean and white floral print, I knew it was just the thing to chase my winter blues away, so I immediately tapped the vendor and added Camila to my collection.

Crossing the Bridge from Winter to Spring

Well, I’ll be decked out in style and ready for that bridge if I ever *do* find it, thanks to TRS Deisgns!  With versions for mesh bodies, as well as classic avatars tucked inside the package, this cheerful little number is a versatile addition to your SL wardrobe.  I love the way it hugs my curves in all the right places.  The skinny spaghetti straps allow your shoulders to soak up some sun and a sexy slit in the side provides freedom of movement as well as a tantalizing glimpse of skin.  I opted to add a cropped denim jacket, but as the day warms up, I’m sure I will slip it off.  Since the Mesh Body Friends group is free to join, I was able to pick up this outfit with plenty of Linden dollars leftover for Ripley snacks, which made a certain someone wag his tail with delight!  The generous designer has a wall full of eleven other group gifts, so if you decide to scoop up a copy of this frock for yourself, be sure to check out all the offers.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sleepless Nights

18-01-18

Hello 3AM…

Everyone goes through this eventually. Waking up in the middle of the night wide awake and no matter how hard you try, there is just no getting back to sleep. So I got dressed and decided to walk the lonely streets of Second Life to burn off this wide awake feeling.

An eye opener…

I saw a free group gift shirt on the feeds at Lupus Femina and when I arrived and joined the group for FREE, I noticed there was also a FREE complete outfit for a group gift. The Aiden Outfit comes with a jacket in two fitmesh sizes and classic sizes small, medium, and large. The pants come fitted for the following body types:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

Also in the gift are sneakers, which is a good thing with all the walking I’m doing tonight. I guess I should wander home and start getting ready for work… *sigh*

A Little Extra Frill

Lacy Sweater
Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are sure happy to be back in Second Life, and we’re also super excited to share our latest Fabulous Find with you.  We discovered this lovely Sweater With Lace Frills as a free group gift upstairs at Sweet E’sDesigns.  With its long sleeves and cozy knit, this soft green dress is sure to keep you toasty warm on mid-winter mornings.  What I really love about this frock is the lace trim on the cuffs and hemline, which adds a decorative, feminine touch that I thought was just so pretty!  Since I was blessed with a sunny day, I chose to wear the outfit with bare legs, but I am sure it would look just as beautiful with a coordinating pair of leggings.  The free gift package for members of the Sweet E’s group (free to join) includes fit mesh for classic avatars, as well as versions for mesh bodies.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Separate alpha layers for dress and lace
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Are You Feeling Lucky?

While I explored the shop, Ripley laid down in front of the four lucky chairs located at the top of the stairs.  I’m thankful he did, because after a short time, he ran over to me, grabbed my hand, and gently led me over the a chair with a wild card ? on it.  I came away with a 100L Sweet E’s gift card in addition to my lovely new dress.  So, I’d suggest keeping an eye on local chat to see if your special letter pops up, too.  I can’t wait to put my gift card to good use!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Scoffing at the Cold

Scoffing at the Cold

I’m contemplating the chills in the air, and scoffing at them today.  Ha!  I shall not wear appropriate clothing!  I shall be cool as a cucumber!  A frozen cucumber…. but don’t I look nice?

Cool and Cute

As I zoomed about the grid, I happened upon the Valentine or Not event.  There are all sorts of gifts there, a few free, and loads of dollarbies!  I stopped by the #bye booth where I was delighted to find a free gift that contained a 100L gift card that can be spent in the #bye mainstore.  I got this fun minidress for 99L!  Cute, right?  How generous is that?

Sizes

  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Sizes XS – L with an Alpha

Ok chills in the air, I concede that I may need a sweater!

All the Sweets

Snapshot_001

I’m still gleefully unpacking gifts from the Womenstuff Hunt. I feel like I’ve made away like a bandit this month will all the goodies! And I’ve put together a look for you with three of the gifts I found that I really like!

All the sweets…

My sweet (and exclusive) dress if from Robot dolly. It’s yours if you stop by their main-store and hunt down that little red t-shirt and buy it for 1L and it’s yours! This cutie comes in lots of mesh sizes to fit your needs.

Mesh sizes included:

  • Classic XXS – L + alpha layer
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Shoes too!

I also stopped by SoHoe Shoes where I grabbed the Kate heels as part of the Womenstuff Hunt, hunting down that little red t-shirt and buying it for 0L and discovered that they matched my cute new mini dress just perfectly. These come in fits for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet and are cute as a button in pink and white.

One more stop!

I teleported over to Hot Fuss for just one more stop for the day and was rewarded with their cute free and exclusive gift for the Womenstuff hunt. I love this necklace! It has a sort of mystical boho feel with its lavender eye and silver diamond eyelashes. And for the price of free you can’t beat the deal! Pick this gift up to wear!

Pastel Princess

Pastel Princess
Hello again Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. I’m gonna just come out and say it, I think this super girly look is so stinkin’ cute! I hope you think so too. It makes me think of pastel goth looks and a more grown up version of some of the kawaii styles I often see. In this post I’ll tell you all about the lace top Pru is wearing from Baii Maii, and the jewelry from Yokai.

Let There Be Lace

Love actually pointed this sweet sexy lace top out to me, and I’m so glad she did. This semi-sheer lace top by Baii Maii is a Marketplace Dollarbie. Baii Maii appears to be a Marketplace only store at this time. This dollarbie halter style top comes in several mesh sizes, and includes a color change hud. The color change hud allows you to pick a completely custom color for each of 3 parts. The ruffles, the main part of the top, and the ribbon edges can each be colored independently. I love the overall look of this top. Also, the ruffles and laces connect cutely in the back, leaving the back mostly open.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Little Stars

Each of the pieces of jewelry Pru has on is a FREE gift at Yokai. The earrings, the choker, and the face stars are all separate FREE gifts with no group required. The necklace includes a color change hud that lets you pick between a few pastel color options for the cloud, and gold or silver for the stars and chain. The prim face stars come in gold only. The earrings can change colors via touch menu, and will allow you to choose gold or silver. The earrings and necklace can also be resized manually. Each of these FREE gifts can be purchased at Yokai for zero linden.

P.S. There are also several other FREEbies at Yokai, none of which require a group!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Solo Showtunes

Solo Showtunes

I got bored being cooped up indoors all day.  It’s too cold out, the wind is howling, the snow is swirling, and all I want is to break free!  I found a hot dress, put on some heels, and this great headdress, picked up my hairbrush and belted out showtunes to my adoring audience!  Oh, and by audience, I mean the dust bunnies!

One Day I’ll Fly Away…

I found this supersexy mini dress in my meanderings through the grid.  It’s a striking white shade with some intense cutouts.  The back is extreeeemely daring, so I spared your eyes and kept facing front!  You can grab this hot little number at the current round of Cosmopolitan.  Just join the group for free, and then click on the posters near the entrance to grab your free dress! It is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

Gacha Obsession

Are you a Gacha person?  I totally am, it can be a bit of a problem!  Sometimes though, I just play each machine once and see what kind of an outfit I can put together!  I got this month’s Pocket Gacha HUD, and played a few of the gachas.  I managed to grab these sweet heels from Belle Epoque (50L) , the fantastic peacock headdress by The Annex (75L) , and even the cute pose by Belle Poses (which comes with the hair brush) (60L).

The dustbunnies are clamouring for an encore!

Goodnight Dolores

Cranberries
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m happy you’re here, even though my post might be a little bit somber. As you may or may not have heard, the world lost another iconic musician yesterday. Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries passed away leaving behind a legacy as one of rock music’s beloved front women. Dolores was an incredibly talented musician and so much more to those that knew and loved her. She was definitely one of the women I deeply admired as a young person and am still inspired by. I could continue with an entire blog post, or two, speaking about my admiration for Dolores O’Riordan, and the many ways she’s influenced my life and the lives of countless others. I won’t. I’ll just end this explanation and tribute by saying how saddened I am to learn of her death, and how deeply I appreciate her and the incredible gift that is the music she left behind.

A Tribute in Plastik

In tribute to Dolores O’Riordan the designer at Plastik put out this little crop top featuring some of the better known lyrics from one of the most recognized songs by the Cranberries. The halter style top reads “In Your Head, In Your Head, Zombie, Zombie” which was very much a politically charged grunge rock anthem, and still is.  The top comes in several mesh sizes, and is completely FREE for everyone. You can purchase yours at the Plastik main store for zero linden.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

The Situation has EscalateD

To go with the top from Plastik I picked up the most recent Fab Free group gift hairstyle from EscalateD. To me it has a very ’90s grunge rock aesthetic. The style comes in 2 sizes, each with or without the little stars. This Fab Free exclusive gift also includes a “Fab Free” color hud which has black hair with a wide range of brightly colored ends. There is also a color change hud for the little stars. To get your copy of this edgy hairstyle, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at EscalateD. As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join.

Here are the details!

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

18-01-16

Just 5 more minutes…

Guys, we’ve all been there… Hearing those magic words “I’ll be just 5 more minutes“. Translated into real time, that’s a minimum of 30 minutes.  I might as well find something to keep myself occupied while I wait.

Not blue…

My formal wear not only looks good but didn’t cost a lot. While hunting the All’stuff Hunt, I came across the Blue with Black Formal Tails, the FREE hunt prize at  69 Park Ave GQ. The suit Comes complete with the jacket, pants, shoes, tie pin, and a top hat and watch (both not shown) in sizes XS-XL

Finishing touches…

I added the Male Bento Gloves, the FREE group gift still available at E-Clipse Design. I also found a pair of Wireframe Glasses, a FREE gift (don’t confuse it with the group gift) at Heth Haute Couture. I also found a 1L Snazzy Walking Stick on the marketplace.

Did I say 30 minutes? I have a feeling it will be more like an hour…
