The Magic of a Red Dress

Hey You With The Red Dress On

Happy Weekend, Fab Free! I hope you are finding time to relax and take it easy. Ripley and I discovered a new-to-us store this week called Celestinas Weddings. The generous designer is currently offering this stunning outfit as a free gift to members of the Celestinas group, which is free to join. Everything I’m wearing in my photo, from the gorgeous diamond earrings to my high heels, is included in the gift, plus a really pretty bouquet to hold that I chose not to wear for my pic.

Everything for Free

Although this looks like a gorgeous gown, Valentina is actually composed of two separates – a lacy, long sleeved top and an elegant, full length, curve-hugging skirt. The crimson-hued fabric of the skirt has a slight sheen and is accented with lighter red areas which resemble drops of dew on rose petals. I love the look of the slightly flared hemline, which sweeps just above the floor. The sheer top features a scalloped edge. The two components pair beautifully together, but can also be mixed and matched with other items in your wardrobe. Large, dangling heart shaped diamond earrings and delicate gem studded heels, also tucked into the gift folder, complete the look. A bouquet of roses and babies’ breath tied with a simple red ribbon can be added to your left hand if you so desire. To pick up a copy of this free ensemble for yourself, teleport over to Celestinas Weddings, activate the group tag, and tap the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Shouldn’t we love every day?

FabFree: Shouldn't we love everyday?
Shouldn’t we love every day?  I can appreciate a day of the year dedicated to love and mush and hearts, but shouldn’t we love every day?  I’m going to keep the love going even today with some pink and red romance!

50L All Day Long!

I am here today on FabFree to share news about a couple of amazing 50L offers for Fifty Linden Friday.  Besom has a whole fatpack of this sultry hairstyle called Lara on sale for 50L until midnight tonight and Cae is offering the Initial Necklace and Bracelet for 50L each.  The Initial Necklace and Bracelet come with texture change jewel and metal options so you can match them up with whatever you have on.

Amor

This sweet romantic dress is Dead Dollz Amor Dress that is being featured at Belle in several colours with texture change gem and ribbon options!  It is not a Fifty Linden Friday offer, however at their mainstore they are participating and also have a 50L dress today on sale until midnight that is gorgeous as well.

Late Afternoon


Late Afternoon

Hello Fab Free’rs! Sometimes you just need to sit and have a quiet moment. Yesterday was that kind of day for me, nothing sad or unfortunate, just some quiet time to reflect. It was good, and needed. I also had a little bit of time to pick up some recent group gifts that I’m happy I get to share with you. Keep reading and as always, I’ll give you all the information about each of these fabulous finds.

The Outfit – Pru’s cute froggy top and plaid pants are the latest free gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by C!L. You can’t see it as well in my photo, but the shirt is cropped and knotted in the front. I love this for a cute casual Valentine look. The outfit comes in several sizes and is suitable for classic avatars. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, you should be! The Fab Free group is always free to join.

Also, there is a hud that will let you completely customize the color of individual sections of the bracelets. I’ve included the vendor photo below so you can get a closer look. The HEC group has a one time join fee of 25 linden.

The Bench – This adorably rustic heart bench is a free group gift at Reka. The Reka group is free to join. It has a few female sit poses, a few male sit poses, and several cuddles. I love the over all look of this sweet free gift, especially the way the bench curves toward the center. This freebie is waiting at the Reka landing point. There’s also a group joiner since you’ll need to be wearing the Reka group tag.

Searching for a Beautiful Heart

In My Heart

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Have you heard about the hunt going on over at the Justice store?  Ripley caught wind of it, and we decided to check it out.  There are 12 hearts hidden around the store priced at just zero linden dollars each.  The pupster and I haven’t yet located all of the hunt items, but the top I am wearing in my photo today is my favorite prize so far!

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The Opal Tank is a cute little number which features super thin spaghetti straps, a satiny sheen and a belt to emphasize your waistline.  A generous hem with softly pleated folds fit perfectly over my capris.  The crimson hue (one of my favorite colors) is just right for Valentine’s day!  The free hunt package, which happens to be prize number 12, contains versions for a number of mesh body types.  For just an investment of time spent hunting in the Justice store, you’ll come away with a vibrant top that I’m sure will become a warmer weather favorite!  The hunt runs until Valentine’s Day, so you have plenty of time to teleport to the shop and do a little sleuthing for yourself.  If you get stumped, you can find hints on the Justice web page, here.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Lasso My Heart for Infinity

What would a Valentine’s Day outfit be without a heart shaped pendant?  I found exactly what I was looking for over at the Grumble store for just 59 Linden dollars.  With a bright red heart dangling from a dark cord decorated with the infinity symbol, this bauble coordinated well with my new top.  If you’d prefer a different color, you can pick up a silver, pink or gold version for just 59 Linden each.  Although it’s just right for V-day, I know I’ll wear this necklace over and over throughout the year.

Back to the Hunt…

Ripley and I are going to head back to Justice and see if we can discover the rest of the elusive hearts scattered throughout the store.  Wish us luck!  Until next time, happy hunting!

English Rose

English Rose

This past summer I spent some time in real world Yorkshire.  It was all about rolling hills and dry stone walls and lots of green (though it was uncommonly hot and dry for the area, and things were just a little crisp!).  They also managed to talk me into trying a Yorkshire pudding the size of a dinner plate, and I’m not entirely sure I’d repeat that experience.  The rest, however, was lovely.  I’m recreating my adventures inworld at the Yorkshire sim, but thankfully no one has tried to feed me massive Yorkshire pudding yet!

The Syndicate is Back!

It’s time for yet another round of Syndicate Sunday!  One of my fave monthly events is happening this week, and you can get lots of pretty things for just 69L each!  I’m showing off some rings I grabbed over at Ama.  They work with Maitreya bento hands and each ring is customizable with a little message you can choose in the HUD.  I went with “love”, but there are a bunch of anti-lovey sentiments to play around with on them too!  The dress I’m wearing is by Anny’s Fashion and is quite a lovely breezy number that has me longing for spring and blooms.  It comes with an HUD to change to several different flower colours and really is quite pretty and ethereal.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP

Hurry though, Syndicate Sunday runs until February 10th!  Make sure you check out their website to see what else is on offer!

Fireside Happiness

Fireside

Happy Sunday evening, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  While wandering the grid, Ripley and I came across a sexy little gift perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday.  The generous designer over at Suna Design is offering the entire outfit I’m wearing above, including necklace and strappy heels, as a free present for members of the Suna Design group.

Sizzling Sensuality

Featuring a plunging neckline, a curve hugging fit, and laced cut outs in the skirt, the Kim mini dress is sure to draw appreciative glances your way.  A swirling design decorates the fabric, which fades from light to dark red along the length of the frock.  The two tiered necklace helps to emphasize its low neckline, and slender high heels show off your shapely legs.  The folder includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, so there is something in here for everyone.  It’s a real treat to have an entire ensemble with clothing, jewelry and shoes all in one neat little package, and to top it all off, this is completely free!  You do have to be a member of the Suna Design group to pick this up, but the group has a zero Linden dollar join fee.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

You’ll Find Me Where Flowers Bloom

Flower Girl

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I’m popping in quickly to share a long hairstyle that I picked up as a free group gift as well as a pretty off-the-shoulder frock that is a special offer as part of the Fifty5Thursday Sale.  Paired together, they create a dreamy, romantic look that I just love.

Yep, I’m a Hopeless Romantic

If you are a member of the Besom VIP Group, you can scoop up a full fat pack of the Flower Girl hair style for free.  If you’re not a member, there is a 50L join fee, but it’s well worth it because you get a pack of all hues for this style.  Featuring a loose top knot and wispy strands dangling on either side of the forehead, the gift folder also includes a style option which allows you to select wearing the length of the hair over your shoulders in front or draping down your back.  Either option looks really pretty!  To add this gorgeous ‘do to your collection, simply teleport to the Besom Hair Store, activate your group tag, and click the vendor.

What’s Included:

  • Pocket Styler
  • Essentials HUD
  • Sleek Set Blacks
  • Sleek Set Blondes
  • Sleek Set Browns
  • Sleek Set Crystal
  • Sleek Set Galaxy
  • Sleek Set Reds

Casual Chic

With a cut that shows off your bare shoulders, long sleeves, an empire waistline, and lace adornments, the Amanda Dress from Cowgirl Up! is comfy, yet adorably cute.  I really like the way the detailed pattern on the bodice contrasts with the simple, faded denim fabric.  Layers of lace trim add just the right decorative touch without overpowering the casual style.  This frock is packed with realistic details such as the worn areas on the fabric, ruffled cuffs on the sleeves, and soft folds in the skirt.  Although it is a bit on the short side, I was able to wear it as a dress by making use of the alpha layer on my mesh body.  I didn’t try it, but I think it would also pair well with jeans, capris or shorts.  For a limited time, you can add Amanda to your wardrobe for just 55L as part of the Fifty5 Thursdays sale.  The event runs through Sunday, but some designers keep the special offers up for the whole week.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Altamura
  • Eve Pulpy
  • Eve Slim
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Venus

Just the Right Vibe

Contributing to the overall charm of my outfit, my Haley earrings from Vibing are one of the offerings from the Fifty Linden Friday sale.  Although the sale is just supposed to be for Fridays only, when I popped in this morning, they are still set to 50L in the shop, so if you like them, hurry on down and they might still be available for this fantastic price.  You get a fatpack of this delicate style which includes the silver option that I’m wearing as well as gold, onyx, and rosegold.

Ripley and I are off to run errands in real life.  Until next time, happy shopping!
