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!

Last One In’s a Rotten Egg (Hunt)

Shadow
Hello Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I have a time sensitive, sultry outfit to share with you today, so I’m going to jump right in to the details.  This stunner of a mini dress from [Witchcraft] can be yours for just 5L as part of the Rotten Egg Hunt (hence the title of this post) that is taking place on the Lanisha sim.  The hunt runs only until April 28th, so there are just a few days left to skip over to the sim, and collect some fabulous finds.  Over 30 stores are participating in the hunt, and the prizes, which cost anywhere from 1-5L, are scattered throughout the sim.  This frock features a halter style neckline with a circular adornment on the bodice, and rows of silvery sequins, which trace your curves.  Sheer on the edges, but opaque in all the right places, this dress is super sexy.  Its asymmetrical hemline adds visual interest.  Mesh body as well as Standard versions are included, but there is no alpha layer.  The package also includes the shoes in my photo.  I really love the added touch of the bows which sit just above ankle height in these heels.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Standard Large Avatar
  • Standard Small Avatar
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Sweet April Showers

April Showers

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  While out on our evening jaunt that I mentioned in my last post, the pupster and I decided to check out the April Showers Hunt.  I am so glad we did because over at C!L Boutique, we discovered a gorgeous gown in a lovely soft teal shade, called “rain.”  Let me tell you, this stunner is well worth the small 1L price!

Ready for Dancing in the Rain

With an empire waist and a full length skirt, this frock will have you ready for formal events.  The bodice features a whimsical spiral design which draws the eyes upward to your bare shoulders.  If the evening is chilly or April showers begin to fall, don’t worry, because the generous designer tucked a cloak and a Victorian style umbrella into the package to shield you from the elements.  I opted not to wear them for my photo, but they add a vintage appeal to the outfit.   Also included (but not worn for my picture) a sheer veil can be worn over the skirt, which is quite pretty.  With classic and mesh body versions, this dollarbie hunt prize is a perfect addition to any girl’s wardrobe.  The April Showers Hunt runs until April 30th, and offers a myriad of prizes, all for 1L.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Easter may be over, but…

City in the Sky_001

Easter may be over but the hunts haven’t ended. All the eggs have rotted! And there are still prizes to be found in them! Thankfully, 20 stores have banded together to create….. dun dun dun! The Rotten Egg Hunt! Each store has set out up to 5 gifts on the Rotten Egg Hunt Sim where you can hunt gifts to your heart’s content. The gifts range in price from 1L to 10L and all are of very high quality. I went over there and checked it out myself before all the eggs disappeared and came away with some great prizes. Don’t worry though, you have until April 28th!

Hunting down some rotten eggs…

I spent some time unpacking my gifts and found two favorites I wanted to share with you. First was this Latex Lingerie by Kawaii. It was only 5L and you’ll get the top in a plain version (shown) or a frills version (not shown) and it’s a fatpack of 8 colors on a color change hud. You’ll also get it for a several of body types.

Available body sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya

The perfect tattoo

To finish off my look, hunt down the Madame Noir Secret 3 tattoo. This too was a 5L hunt egg. You’ll get a hud that includes Omega and Maitreya appliers as well as options for 75% and 50% opacity.

Happy Hunting!

Inspired…

Kat got all dolled up for a date night out and I was inspired to do the same, though I took my own spin on things since of course Kat and I have different styles. I found a couple of hunt items at Glitzz and also stopped by Redeux, which has just opened up and will be open until the 21st, to pick up free gifts!

Getting ready…

My dress from Glitzz, which could double as lingerie, includes panties and comes in a beautiful pearlized blue color with a lace hem and neckline and pearl shoulder straps. It’s sexy al la mode for sure. It only comes in Maitreya and Hourglass, but you might be able to do some fiddling to get it to fit your body type if you tried. For the price of 1L as part of the Honey Funny Bunny Hunt, it’s worth trying it out to see if this sexy number will fit your mesh body. It fit my Maitreya body like a perfect glove.

The choker.

My choker is a diamond masterpiece set in a gold setting. There is an included hud which allows you to change the setting to silver. There are two different chokers in the gift box … an unscripted version that is simply a pretty choker/necklace, and an open collar rlv version for those who want some adult risky play. This choker is a gift from Glitzz as part of the Evil Bunny Hunt and will only cost you 1L and a little hunting time.

Final Touches.

I wanted to add a little “sexy mystery” to my look and I found it at Redeux. This is the anniversary round, so not only are there lots of 25L items, 50% off items, and low price gachas, but there are also many many amazing free gifts. I picked up this lace mask by Viki with my free to join Redeux tag. There were free gifts at every booth though, so hurry over before the event ends on April 21st!

Mask appliers available:

  • Lelutka
  • Omega

These Gifts Speak for Themselves

Rising_001

I tried to think of something funny and clever to say but in the end I had writer’s block so this gift will have to speak for itself. Thankfully, it does well, with these great leggings, embellished with crosses, and the skin tight corset that shows off… well so much I had to get strategic hair to cover up… you know. Parts.

You can pick this gift up at Waffles as part of the Darkness Inside Hunt. It’s actually two separate gifts… the leggings come in one hunt box for 1L and the corset comes in a separate hunt box for 25L so you can get the entire look for just 26L total.

Corset sizes available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Fine & Curvy
  • Physique & Hourglass
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

Legging Sizes Available:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L

  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

No, Really, I’ve Been Spring Cleaning All Morning!

Sunday Morning

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Honestly, I have been busy working on organizing the garage all morning!  I’m just in the middle of one of my rare breaks.  Bruiser, here, wandered over from next door, and I had to pause, give him a long scritch between his ears, and slip him a Ripley snack or two.  Good thing the Pupster was off on a walk with Kat, otherwise there might have been a rumble around here!

For Him…

Loyal reader Geoffrey Edwardstone sent in a tip that there are some terrific prizes to locate in the For Him Hunt.  You may have already seen that Loki blogged the Horr Menswear hunt prize {here}.  It sure looks great on him!  Astrid shared the Storax Tree’s Seattle Loft Small Table {here}, which is another hunt item.  After seeing all of these goodies, and reading Geoffrey’s note, I decided to tackle this hunt for myself.  In no time at all, I picked up my Camo Cargo Shorts over at {Fe Style}.  The package includes two fit mesh options, plus mesh for classic avatars.  By adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza body, I got a terrific fit, even though there is not a specific mesh avatar version.  With plenty of pockets to stash the day’s necessities in, and a cool camo print, I can see myself sporting these shorts often.  Once I located the wrench concealed in the shop, this summer wardrobe staple cost me just one Linden dollar.  Thanks so much for the heads up, Geoffrey!

Sizes Included:

  • two fitmesh versions
  • mesh in S, M, and L
  • alpha layer for classic avatars

Back to Work

I was glad to get out of the house head out to organize the garage so I could avoid sorting  through items indoors assist with operation SPRING SPRUCE UP (her idea, not mine!).  I hear the pitter patter of dog feet returning from his walk, so I’d better get started back to work.  I hope he didn’t count how many Ripley snacks were in the jar out here.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Gem of a Find

Opal

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a super weekend.  I’ve been feeling under the weather in RL for the past few days, but I’m finally getting better.  What is it about spring colds?  With the warmer weather, I thought I was in the clear as far as viruses go, but Mother Nature proved me wrong.  Ripley has been raring to go for his regular walks, so we decided to venture further down the trail of the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  We have two more prizes to share with you tonight.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Hues of the Opal…

Both of my items today can be found in the Little Black Dress shop.  The generous designer has set out not one, but two free hunt gifts for the Grow Your Awareness Hunt.  First, the gorgeous Opal Dress features a sleeveless design, v-shaped neckline, and a figure flattering cut.  A pretty midsection accentuates your waist, and then flows down into a loosely ruffled skirt, which ends at mid thigh.  I love the iridescent floral pattern scattered across the raven colored background.  On higher graphics settings, you can see a myriad of colors in the design; on lower settings, the flowers are a pale silvery gray, which is also quite lovely.  You can add this frock to your spring wardrobe for free once you locate the hunt object in the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

…And the Petals of a Blossom

My elegant Enamel Flower Necklace is also concealed in the store.  I love the large, eye catching blossom suspended on a delicate silver chain.  The center stone can be easily customized with a few clicks of the mouse via a built in menu.  I opted for onyx, but there are 11 other selections to choose from, which makes this a versatile piece of jewelry.  I think it pairs beautifully with the Opal Dress, but I can also see myself wearing it with other outfits, too.  For just the cost of your time searching in the shop, you can scoop up a free new bauble for your collection.

I hope you get a chance to spend some time yourself wandering down the Grow Your Awareness Hunt path.  There are many eye catching delights just awaiting discovery.  Until next time, happy hunting!
