A Boho Babe

Spring morn

Hullo there, Fabulous Readers!  I was still feeling the boho vibe when I got up this morning, so I figured it was a great time to share another of the hunt prizes I picked up while traveling down the path of The Boho Hunt.   Just like the shorts in my last post, this hunt item cost only 1 Linden dollar.

Blame It On My Gypsy Soul

The adorable top in my photo can be yours if you uncover the miniature white llama hidden in the Trashed store.  Featuring spaghetti style straps, a cropped hemline and an arrow decorated with a pretty floral and feather motif, the Boho Babe top is sure to be a warm weather favorite.  I really like its muted color scheme, so I decided to pair it with a simple pair of white capris to create a clean, casual outfit, perfect for a walk on a misty morning.  I’m sure it would look just as fantastic with jeans, shorts or a skirt.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin Classic
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ Into the Future

Bonjour

Bonjour, Fabulouses!  Real life has been super hectic lately.  It seems like it was just Friday and now all of a sudden it’s Wednesday!  Time is flying by.  I hope your week is going well.  Speaking of flying, I’m pedaling out to do some more hunting, but wanted to quickly share this outfit with you.  The pieces are separates, but to my eyes, they look like they were made to go together.  The best part is, my clothes only cost one little Linden dollar!

Think Pink

This adorable Bimi halter-style top in a bright raspberry hue is a free gift from Baby Monkey for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Featuring a high neckline and and a low cut back, this little number is ideal for those sultry late spring days ahead.   I really like the folds in the fabric and the way it hugs your curves and allows you to soak up the sun.  It is designed for a variety of mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate your Fab Free group tag, right click on the board and pay 1L, which will immediately be refunded to you along with the delivery of your gift.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus

  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

A Little Bit Boho

Ripley and I ventured along the trail of The Boho Hunt recently.  There are 34 stops along the way with prizes that cost 1 Linden dollar each.  Over at Horr Menswear, if you find the tiny white llama concealed in the shop, you can scoop up these cute little blue Monetta shorts for yourself.  They ride low on your hips and are packed with details such as rivets on the pockets and a bright pink wraparound belt, which coordinates beautifully with the Bimi crop top.  There’s something in this hunt prize for everyone, because versions for classic as well as mesh bodies are tucked inside the package.  The shorts are actually from Ambient Fashion, but they are hidden in Horr Menswear for the hunt.  The event runs until March 31, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing for yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Where Flowers Bloom

Gathering Posies

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to the peaceful quiet of the Elvion sim today after traveling down the path of the Spring Fling Hunt.  My pretty floral frock happens to be one of the prizes that you can uncover in this hunt for just 1 Linden dollar.

Gathering Posies

The sweet springtime print scattered across a cream colored background on this hunt prize inspired my pose today.  It made me think of an enjoyable morning spent wandering through nature gathering wildflowers.  Featuring a sleeveless design and a hemline that falls to the upper thigh, this dress will help you usher in sunny, warm spring days.  Its full skirt is loosely gathered and offers casual comfort for day to day activities.  To add this little beauty to your inventory, simply teleport over to The Sissy Bar, locate the rose blossom hidden somewhere inside, and pay just one little Linden dollar.  If you get stumped, there is a handy hint giver in the shop.  Honestly, the pupster and I found the hunt object without any trouble at all, so this should be quick and easy for you, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Altamura
  • Bangles
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Why Walk If You Can Dance?

Alice

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week got off to a terrific start yesterday.  I’m happy to be able to tell you that Ripley made it through his surgery and is back home resting and recovering.  He surprised the vet tech by chewing through his first catheter – silly, spunky boy!  Right now, after he was shaved for his ultrasound last week, and again yesterday on his two front legs and around his incision, he looks a bit worse for wear, but I am grateful to have him back home.  We will know more in the next week or so if the surgery was successful.  Thank you so much for your kind words of support.  They touched my heart.

Since I had some extra time while hanging out with my exhausted pal, I was able to discover some gifts that I am excited to share with you.  One is this gorgeous dress, which I picked up as a free Women’s Day gift, and the other is a sultry dance animation that cost just one little Linden dollar.  Even though I’m nowhere near as skilled as Love with her editing skills, I had fun making a little video clip to showcase the dance moves, and I hope you enjoy it!

First, The Dress

With its high neckline and long sleeves, you might think the Alice Dress would be on the “plain Jane” side, but its sexy slit, golden eyelets and tied lacing add spice and intrigue.  I love the way this little number clings to your curves and dips dramatically low in the back.  The fabric itself contains subtle ribbing and realistic folds.  The hemline falls just to the upper thigh, so you might need to make strategic use of the alpha layer on your mesh body while out and about.  Although I opted for black, there is also a maroon version tucked inside the gift folder that is just as appealing.  To pick up a copy of this frock for yourself, teleport over to the Hilly Haalan shop, activate the Hilly Haalan Fashions tag, and tap the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Next, The Moves

Humanoid Dance Animations, one of my favorite animations stores on the grid, celebrates the return of Angie by offering the slow, sexy Angie_16 dance for just 1 Linden dollar.  It’s fascinating to watch how Angie’s dance animations are captured from real life, so I’ve linked Humanoid’s video below.  Here’s my little clip of how the dance appears in world:

 

 

Thanks for reading and watching.  Happy shopping!

Is Today Your Lucky Day?

Crossing Bridges

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  In my last post, I shared the latest group gift for members of the Scandalize group, and today I’m back with a Lucky Chair prize that group members can scoop up for free.  Sleek and elegant, I think you will really like this one!

When Lady Luck Smiles

Featuring a crop top with a cute twist detail in the fabric and curve-hugging leggings, the Senuna outfit is comfy yet packed with sex appeal.  The off the shoulder style of the top allows you to soak up some sunshine while long sleeves provide contrast and coverage.  In real life, I often have trouble finding sleeves that are long enough for me.  I wish more of my tops had the generous length that these sleeves do!  Even with its dramatically dipped neckline, the shirt still keeps you covered in all the right places.  For a bit of variety, you could opt to wear the fuzzy version of the top, which the generous designer also included with the prize.  In addition, you have two options for the leggings, both of which feature the word “Scandal” across the waistband.  You can opt for solid black as I have done in my photo, or add some pizazz with the ombre version, which fades from ebony to a rosey pink.  Either way, you will look stunning!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

The Pupster

You might know that Ripley is based on my RL dog.  Although he is fairly young, he has been having health issues for the past month, and the vet is not sure what is wrong with him.  I dropped him off for surgery this morning, and would sincerely appreciate positive thoughts and healing energy sent his way.  We were hoping to put off the operation until he regained more strength, but he took a turn for the worse over the weekend, and it can’t be delayed.  If you pray, please keep him in your prayers.  I’m worried about my pal.

Alright Spring, Do Your Thing!

Spring is in the Air

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your Monday treated you well.  If not, I’ve got just the thing to cheer you up – how does a free outfit sound?  My jacket, knotted cropped top and leggings all came as a group gift over at the Scandalize shop.

Spring is in the Air!

Ripley and I took a trip over to the Fox Paradise sim and enjoyed the ocean view while we frolicked in the green meadow.  The Elva Outfit is just right for those early spring days where the morning starts out a bit brisk, but then temperatures warm throughout the day.  All three pieces are worn separately, so as the mercury rises, you can shed the jacket and just sport the sexy white top alone.  I love it when an outfit is flexible like that!  Speaking of flexibility, the package includes two different versions of the jacket (the blue one I am wearing as well as an all white one) and two variations of the leggings – solid white and ombre.  You even get a HUD with a ton of options for altering the color of the buttons on the jacket.  To pick up a copy of Elva for yourself, you need to be a member of the Scandalize group, which has a 100L join fee, but there is an entire wall full of gifts up for grabs, as well as some lucky boards, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Paw-sitively Perfect

While we were shopping at Grumble, Ripley wandered over and started sniffing a tiny little pet bed and bone, which just so happened to be the hunt object for the Puppy Love Hunt.  The hunt is technically over, but luckily for me, the prize at Grumble is still available.  For just one Linden dollar, I scooped up a bauble which was right up my alley.  If you like fur babies as much as I do, this paw print dangling from a silver chain might be the ideal finishing touch to your outfit.  Don’t delay, though, because I’m not sure how much longer this will be up for grabs!

That’s a wrap for tonight.  Until next time, happy shopping (and hunting)!

A Gift From a Dove

Stand Tall

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  The pupster and I are popping in quickly to share this maxi skirt outfit that I picked up as a free group gift over at The Free Dove.  Way back when I was new to SL, someone introduced me to this marvelous shop, where I began my love affair with SL fashion.  Every so often, I return to check out the new arrivals, and this visit did not disappoint!  I came away with a swagger in my step and several new additions to my inventory.

She Has a Gypsy Soul

The Gypsy Swagger Outfit from Eclectique features a halter style top paired with a maxi skirt with a definite Bohemian vibe.  I love the deep, rich color scheme of this gift!  The two pieces can be worn separately, which adds to the versatility of the outfit.  The skirt features a darker waist panel with a drawstring bow hanging down, and a patterned fabric which ends in a slightly flared hemline.  The solid wine colored top echoes the predominant hue from the skirt.  You can pick up this boho-styled set for free, just for being a member of the Free Dove group.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

I hope you are having a lovely weekend!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Goin’ Gone

Goin' Gone

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I have to get my house ready for the bug guy to spray (oh the joys of living in the desert with scorpions and other nasties), but I wanted to pop in quickly to share a really pretty hunt prize with you.  I’ve already blogged one of our other finds from the Puppy Love Hunt here, but I must say, I think this one is my favorite.

Lagenlook – What’s That?

The Byzantine Lagenlook dress from Coveted features a gorgeous golden design over a deep burgundy fabric, which happens to be a go-to color for me in RL.  Its slightly flared, asymmetrical hemline falls at about mid thigh.  Cap sleeves and a fairly high scooped neckline complement the figure-flattering cut of the frock.  Three covered buttons on the right hand side add visual interest.  I had never heard the word “lagenlook” before, so of course, I googled it and discovered that it is a style which incorporates wearing layers of clothing.  Although I chose to wear just the dress by itself for my post today, I think it would work well with additional items such as leggings, a jacket, etc.  To pick up a copy for yourself, head on over to the Coveted store and locate the hunt object (a pet bed with a bone) concealed in the shop.  For just 1 little Linden dollar and a bit of time looking around, you’ll come away with a lovely outfit.  The Puppy Love Hunt runs only until February 28th, so if you like the prize as much as I do, don’t delay!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Well, I am off to vacuum and tidy up.  I can tell spring is coming because Ripley is blowing his coat, and his “German Shedder” hair is creating dust bunnies galore.  Thank goodness for the invention of the vacuum cleaner!  Until my next post, happy hunting!

It’s Still Sweater Weather

Sweater Weather

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are popping in really quickly today to share this adorable sweater dress/scarf combo.  I picked it up as a free gift over at S@BBiA just for being a member of the S@BBiA group (which, btw is completely free to join).  Featuring a cozy cable knit pattern, long sleeves and a thick scarf to keep out wintry winds, this is a perfect end of winter (a girl can hope, right?) outfit.  I love the soft dusty rose hue.  The gift includes a texture change HUD for the neckline and wrist cuffs, but I chose to keep them the same shade as the rest of the dress.  Many of the gifts that I come across are for mesh bodies only, but the Cable Knit Dress (in one size fits all) includes an alpha layer so those rocking classic avatar bodies will be able to sport this outfit just the same as those with mesh bodies.   Best of all, you get both the scarf and frock for free!  After I slipped into some thigh high boots, the pupster and I spent the late afternoon hours exploring the Rosehaven Dreaming sim.

What’s Included:

  • Cable Knit Dress (one size only)
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Texture Change HUD
  • Knit Scarf

Until my next post, happy shopping!
