Stripes Never Go Out of Style

Stripes

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I hit the hunt trail again today….this time we followed the Star Spangled Hunt 2 path.  At Inara’s Fashion, the pupster sniffed out the firework hunt icon which contained this adorable striped tank and denim overall shorts outfit for only 1 little Linden dollar.  The white tank features dark blue stitching and wavy stripes which coordinate perfectly with the hue of the shorts.  I particularly like the way the overalls are adorned with dark gold metallic stars and shield-shaped patches on the pockets.  It’s a fun, casual look that was perfect for a stroll across the lovely landscape at the Svalbard sim.  The Star Spangled Hunt 2, which features stars/stripes and bright patriotic colors, runs until July 18th, so you have plenty of time left to discover some budget-friendly hunt prizes for yourself.

Sizes:

  • Mesh outfit (top and shorts together) in S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer

I hope you are finding time to relax and enjoy your weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Beeeeeeeee Happy!

Beeeeee Happy

Mmmmm… a slice of watermelon in the middle of summer is just the thing! Pair it up with a cute free dress, and a great pair of sunglasses and the day can’t be beat! I put my hair up out of the way to make sure it didn’t get sticky. Let me tell you all about my look today!

This great pose!

I went to check out the Honey I Shrunk the Cart Sale and Hunt and went around and picked up as many of the hidden 2L Honey Drops as I could find. I’m showing off several of my 2L finds to you in this post! One of my favorite 2L gifts was this Watermelon Patch pose prop! It comes in two sizes. One for adults (shown) and one for kids! You’re sure to enjoy taking pictures with this terrific hunt prize!

Too cool for summer!

I love this cute butter colored dress. This cute minidress is by Crazy Pastry Designs and comes in lots of sizes.

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Tonic – Curvy & Fine
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

I paired the dress with a great pair of blue “Zipper” sunglasses by Closet Full of Pancake. You can get a close-up of what these look like by clicking on the Flickr picture. One of the lenses has a “zipper” in it for a unique look!

Another Hair Fair visit.

I also couldn’t resist another visit to the Hair Fair. I knew I needed an updo to keep my hair out of the sticky yummy mess of my watermelon eating. Cheveux happily provided with their free gift! This hair gift is a mesh fatpack of colors and is cute as can be. I cam-shopped from the same spot I’ve been cam shopping from the last couple of times (I’m still finding lots of goodies there) and it was an easy to find booth. Remember to use this tip for selecting objects that are far away:

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

Happy Hunting and Hair Fair shopping!

Punk Rock Girl

A Tale of Two Cats

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness, and hit the hunt trail again.  This time, the pupster and I sought out little white skulls during the Brii Underground Punk Rock Girl Hunt.  Each of the ten punk rock themed prizes in this hunt cost 1L and feature a complete outfit.   At the landing point, there is a board which displays the variety of hunt gifts and also a hint giver, which I found very useful.

Punk’s Not Dead…

…at least that’s what the Lokele t shirt claims.  The black side-knotted top features a gray, guitar-wielding skeleton, which definitely gives the shirt an edgy feel.  The asymmetrical, cropped hemline provides a sexy glimpse of your tummy.  Gray and black plaid capris with white stitching and riveted pockets coordinate beautifully with the theme of the outfit.  To wrap it all up, flat black sneakers with dark gray socks complete the look.  Quite a bit of care was taken with the amount of detail in these shoes, from the suede texture with white stitching, and the untied laces, to the herringbone-patterned soles.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh pants in XS, S, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Mesh T shirt in XS, S, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Alpha layers for top and shorts for classic avatars
  • Fitmesh pants in S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh T shirt in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Omega Lokele Make Up Catwa Head Jessica (not worn in my photo)

A New Multi Hue Updo

The edgy feel of my new outfit called for a different style hair than my usual, and the Zoe updo from EscalateD fit the bill perfectly. Completely free to Fab Free group members, this hairstyle features long tresses gathered in a large bun at the back of your head.  A few wispy strands dangle realistically down near your ears and the back of your neck.  The dark ebony hue of the hairstyle is brightened by highlights which provide vibrant pops of color.  A texture change HUD allows you to customize the base color and streak color of the highlights, offering a range of 15 colors across the rainbow spectrum.  I decided to use purple tinted eye shadow to play off the streaks in my hair.  It’s not a look I’d wear every day, but it made for a fun change up!

Ripley and I will return soon with another Fabulous Find to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Beach Bunny

Snapshot_005Good morning Fabulouses!  Horray for Saturday!  I have been looking forward to this day since Monday.  It’s a little cloudy and breezy, but hot hot hot so it’s a beach day for this beach bunny!

Suiting Up!

I picked up a new swimsuit for the occasion at 1 Hundred.  This basic one piece may be simple in cut, but sometimes the simple suits that let your curves do all the talking are the best ones!  The vibrant white and hot pink chevron print will make heads turn your way on the beach.  The best news about this suit?  It was FREE for the Women Only Hunt!  You just have to look for the coconut and buy it for 0L!

Chevron Suit Sizes Included:

  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Maitreya Lara

Don’t forget a towel!

The Bag of Towels sitting beside by chair is made by Décor Junction / Shutter Field and is available as a free gift at The Second Pride event.  This colourful item is just 1 prim and is copy/mod.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/23/2017 – EscalateD

EscalateD Info Desk
Happy what’s left of Friday Fab Free’rs! I hope each of you has had a fun day that seemed to get away from you as I did. Even though it’s late in the day, I’m still excited to be here with you for this weeks Fab Free Designer Friday post. Today I get to share with you a cool little hair shop called EscalateD. The quote at the bottom of the Info Desk at EscalateD pretty much says it all. Life is too short for boring hair, especially in Second Life. Sorry gentlemen, this shop currently only has hair for the ladies. The most notable thing for me about the hairstyles aside from the style which is edgy and urban, are the bold bright color options along with rich natural colors. The EscalateD shop its self is small, however there are a lot of styles to choose from. At the landing point in the center of the shop you can find all the usual information. This is also where you’ll see info about current hunts and events, as well as group gifts.

EscalateD GiftsAs you can see in the photo above, there are many opportunities to score very cute FREE hairstyles at EscalateD. There is 1 current and 3 previous EscalateD group gifts currently available. There is also a group only Midnight Mania board. The EscalateD group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. In the same area of the store you’ll also see 4 other gifts including the FREE Fabulously Free exclusive group gift. Like always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. For a closer look at the Fab Free gift at EscalateD, check out Love’s announcement post here. In addition to all the cool group gifts, there is 1 freebie, and 2 non group Lucky Letter boards. You won’t want to miss out on all these amazing offers! Also, check out the weekly sales item next to the info desk, there you’ll find a discounted style each week. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Prince and the Pea

Price and the Pea

Waited on Hand and Foot….

You’d think that would be great, someone talking care of your every need. Adjusting the pillows, pulling down the covers because you are hot, pulling them up because you are cold, having all your meals served to you in bed…  It is pretty awesome…. for a while, then it gets old and you want to do things for yourself. I’m happy to say that all my help has vanished and I’m glad to be doing things on my own.

Laid Up in Style…

You can still be stylish while convalescing.  I stopped by House of Ruby and found the Ruby Boxers for just 1L as part of the Masters of Style Hunt. These applier boxers come in both Slink and Omega appliers. The netted look to the boxers are great for lounging, recovering or sharing some naughty time with that someone special. The Masters of Style Hunt runs from June 17th through July 31st.

Summer Yellow

Summer Yellow

A new summer outfit is always a great thing, especially when it’s something colorful and pretty and has a little bit of lace. I love this pretty yellow lacy top I found with the matching shorts! For just 1L and a little hunting time as part of the Summer Hunt, you may want it too!

Look for the Beach Ball!

I stopped by Prism and hunted around for the beach ball (as per the clue), and when I found it, I also found the beach ball that was the little item I could buy for 1L. I was rewarded with this Milan Citrus outfit package! It includes the shorts and top.

The top comes in the lacy version as well as a more modest version that isn’t see through in the lacy parts (not shown). You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as a fitmesh size for both the top and the bottom.

If you decide to go exploring…

You may have noticed that a couple of my posts have been pictured at the sim Elysion. Just a quick forewarning if you decide to go exploring: it’s a beautiful place for picture taking — lush and exotic and gorgeous. However it is an adult setting and does require a group fee for entrance. Just wanted to make sure I put that out there for those who have adventure on their minds! 🙂

Down the rabbit hole…

This week I feel like I fell down the rabbit hole, attended a wild tea party and smoked a hookah with a caterpillar. I thought I’d show you some items I found before I get summoned for a round of croquet. I found three gifts at AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS  that I’d like to share with you. First off, I found a gift for FitMesh Fanatics to celebrate 15K members.  The Male Shirt is comes in either v-neck or u-neck. The Fitmesh Fanatics group is FREE to join.

Off with his … Clogs?

The other two gifts come bundled in one box and for just 1L. Both the Male Shorts and the Green Male Clogs can be found in the Summer Hunt gift located somewhere in AmAzINg CrEaTiOnS. Any time I can find clogs to wear, I do just to annoy her. She says it is not fashionable to wear them, but I think they are comfy.

Ok, I’m out for a bit. Until next time…

Carson
