A Fishing Anecdote

A Fishing Anecdote

I was trying to think of a fishing anecdote, since I’m featuring the fishing outfit currently available at Sn@tch today.  The only thing that came to mind was the time I took a little day trip outside of the city, making my way towards the small towns and lakes that reside about an hour North of me.  I packed up the car with some friends, and we jaunted off in search of adventure.  One of the more outdoorsy types among us decided bringing a fishing pole would be a spiffing idea.  Once out of the concrete jungle, we found a lake with a dock jutting out into it.  A few people had already set up, looking mighty professional about it all.  We sat down, and finally (after a bit of fussing with the poles), I was ready to go.  After a pleasant bit of time lazing with my feet over the dock, I felt a tugging at the line – I had caught a fish!  I was advised to reel it in, and up it came wriggling like mad.  I then proceeded to be the most ridiculous city girl of all time: I screamed, jumped up and let go of the line, fearing the small silver fish might get some of its silver scale juices on me.  Needless to say, the native country-dwellers were all rolling their eyes audibly, and I was rather pink-faced.

Get to the Goods

All my rambling about fish and poles and docks to let you know that my lovely outfit today (including hair, leggings, tank top, and lipstick) are from the current fishing prize from Sn@tch.  I really couldn’t pass up these amazing leggings, so I propped up at the fishing hole, without fear of any slippery fish actually making an appearance!  To get this lovely outfit (and several other items!) grab a 7 Seas fishing rod (it will set you back 100L), and hang out by the pond at Sn@tch.  You can use that pole to fish for all future fishing prizes!  Woot!

Club Wear in Two Stops and 3 Linden

Garage

Love was mentioning how she moved from the big city to a small town when she was young and brave. I grew up on a farm… it didn’t even qualify as a small town… and when I went off to college, I moved away to the city. I remember going to clubs and bars for the first time just to play pool because back home, the closest town nearest me didn’t allow women into the pool hall (yes it was that old fashioned!). So when I got to the city I was so excited to go and just play pool at all the hang out joints! I’d dress up for a night on the town and head out, buy a diet pepsi and play pool. It was great fun!

The perfect outfit.

This outfit I’ve put together is perfect for club wear and will only cost you 3 Linden total and a little bit of hunting time. You’ll also only have to make 2 stops to get the dress, shoes, and hair!

First, make a pit stop at Barbed Wire Kisses. They are participating in two great hunts right now. For 1L as part of the Cute and Curvy Hunt, you can hunt down a lolly pop and pick up my cute little two piece outfit. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya & Isis

While you’re at Barbed Wire Kisses, be sure to hunt down the globe for the World Tour Hunt and buy it for 2L. You’ll get the shoes in the picture above that are almost a perfect match for the Cute and Curvy outfit! These heels come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

New Hair too!

Take a last stop to Desmonia and you’ll be all set. The hair I’m wearing in the picture comes in a full fatpack of colors and currently the group is free to join. But HURRY! This is a limited time offer and the group is set to go back to a join fee any time now. You don’t want to miss out!

Classy Dame

Classy Dame

Everyone needs a good bunch of classic items for their wardrobe.  Even me, the girl who loves bodysuits, pastel hair and thigh high boots.  Sometimes you just gotta dress it up all classic-like and be respectable and such!

Boss Time

I found this very appropriate, yet modern look that will take you from work to cocktails in no time.  And of course, it’s FREE!  I picked up the Donna pants and shirt at No Name by joining their group for free.  The shirt comes with an HUD that allows you to change to six satiny colours.  You can wear the top and pants separately, which will expand your outfit opportunities greatly!  This outfit comes in XXS – L with an Alpha Layer.

Hair Flair

There are several new lucky boards up at Olive, making the total opportunities for a new ‘do rocket up to 12!  Yep, 12 different boards – 12 different styles for all your hair needs.  You don’t even need to join a group, just a little luck and patience.  I was lucky enough to grab the long, blonde “White Rabbit” hair for free which I’m feeling quite luxurious in!  Go get ’em!

I think my work here is done, so now time for that cocktail!

Hey Fab Free’rs! It’s time to get out your Doc Martins and your brown lipstick, ’90s fashion and accessories are making a comeback! I am once again going to show my age with this post, but I’ve learned to not care about age so much.

Right now you can get the cutest little heart choker for free at Boutique #187. This is a rare “no group required” freebie from Boutique #187, so you won’t want to miss it. It has resize scripts and comes in black, gold, and silver. I remember wearing these stretchy black plastic chokers in my teens in the ’90s so of course I had to have this one.

What better way to show off your choker than with cute braided space buns?! This hairstyle is a recent group gift at Pink Hustler. It comes with 3 color pack huds, and has resize scripts. The Pink Hustler group has a sizable join fee of 500 linden. This fee will grant you not only the current group gift, but an entire wall of previous group gifts, and of course future gifts.

Happy Shopping Fab Free, here are the details!

Thrills and Frills

Thrills and Frills

The other day, Astrid mentioned that I needed to get out and have an adventure.  She was quite right, so I snuck on over to Cythera, land of swamps and mists.  As I plodded my way around the bogs, seeking out thrills, I figured I’d best get some selfies done before an alligator decided to chomp off my legs or some such.  Where’s the nearest Starbucks in this swamp anyway?!

Frills

Although I’m seeking out thrills, I did manage to grab some frills when I was at the Gachaland event the other day.  I showed you some of the hair I got for free yesterday, but toady I’m showing off a whole lot more!  Check out what I got:

  • Hair by Analog Dog (So cute with the headband – loads of different textures to choose from!) Free!
  • Bracelet by Aseriz – Free!
  • Earrings by Nanika – Free!
  • Nail Polish applier by Livia (Comes with Omega, Maitreya, Slink, and Vista as well as Astralia Nails) – Free!
  • Pose by Vo.Z (There are 4 poses in this pack) – Free!

Get over to Gachaland and join the Gimme Gacha group for free, then pick up all your gifts.

Seriously though, something just pushed past my leg and I’m not joking!

Craving Coachella

Craving Coachella

All weekend I saw people posting photos of their trips to Coachella music festival – you know, dressing up all crazy cool and dancing in the dust, with flowers in your hair.  I’m still stuck in the land of ice storms and shivers so I hopped inworld and found myself a cactus to pose beside!  I’m enjoying the rays of the sun on my way to see Beyoncé while sipping on some agave lemonade (I dunno, sounds like a thing to do in the desert!).  But the best part is – my outfit is completely free!

Dress me Up

I absolutely love this light and airy dress by Sophisticate that I found for free at the Garden of Shadows event.  There are several moderately priced gifts hanging around (mostly around 10L), but this one is completely free!  I love the mint green colour and the little heart cutouts.  Perfect for a day in the sun.  (I hope I don’t get weird tan lines…).  You can get it too by heading to the Garden of Shadows and seeking out the Sophisticate booth.  You’ll be happy you did!

  • Isis

More Hair!

Another event going down right now is Gachaland!  There are loads of  free gifts to be had there, but today I’m going to just tease a bit and show you the hair I found by Ayashi.  They’re always generous and have some great hairstyles out at events for free. Today’s side braid will keep me cool in the warm weather, as well as keeping me cool in the “Oh, Aline you’re so cool” kind of way since it’s pink! There are several pastel hues in the HUD with this hairdo.  Oh and yup – it’s free!  Just join the Gimme Gacha group and pick it up!

Who run the world?  Moi!

Not So Basic

Not So Basic

My go-to is the little black dress.  I love the easy glam of pulling on a black dress and knowing it will be appropriate, no matter the situation.  However, some days you really just want to push the envelope a bit.  Purple is the perfect half way point, I think.  Because it’s dark, sultry, and um…not black!  In my post today, I’ll tell you all about where to grab this particularly head-turning ensemble!

Dressed Up

I found my not so basic dress at Masoom!  Their April group gift is this dress that toes the line between supersexy and regal, and I’m loving every minute of it!  You can grab yours by joining the Masoom group for 10L.  I mean, check out them cut outs!  How can you possibly live without?  😉

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Well Heeled

My shoes today were a completely free find at Bodyfy – the event that focuses mostly on tattoos and other suchness.  I was pleased to find a free pair of shoes by Fashion Addiction.  Just find the red buttons at each stall to pick up your gifts – no group join required, making these pretty pumps completely free!  The Bodyfy event is open until April 24th.

Best Tressed

And, it’s Truth time!  The March group gift came out a smidge late, however check out this pretty thing!  As always, the Truth monthly group gift is gorgeous, with a full fatpack of colours and a stylist HUD that lets you change up the bangs.  It’s kinda like getting 4 hairstyles in one!  If you haven’t joined the Truth group, it may seem a little pricey at 350 Lindens, but every month you get a sweet hairstyle that is always top notch.  Well worth it!

Time to sashay away!

One more stop!

I hadn’t been by Moondance Boutique in a while, and I love their jewelry, (it always includes such terrific color change huds). I was pleasantly surprised to see new group gifts out and available and I quickly picked up the free SL frees and Offers group gift. This Tracey jewelry set includes the necklace, earrings, bracelets, and rings in the picture. You can zoom in on the flickr for a close up! You’ll get lots of gemstone choices (the gemstones change colors separately) plus several metal finishes to choose from. Enjoy this gift free!
