Lost in a Daydream

Daydreaming

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I’m having a lazy start to my morning.  Lounging on a hammock and  listening to the birds singing is so much more fun than grocery shopping.  The local market in my area has this new service where you send them your list, they select your items, and all you have to do is drive to the store.  They meet you in the parking lot and even help load your groceries into your car.  That sure would free up more time for shopping at The Cart Wash….

Savanna

The last time Ripley and I walked through the wash, I couldn’t help but admire the Savanna complete outfit at the Finale Couture display.  For just 50L, I came away with this sexy bustier and sleek leather pants, which show off my every curve.  A beaded leather necklace, a pair of earrings, and gold studded heels (for Maitreya and Slink feet) rounded out my look.  The top and trousers both feature coordinating golden accents such as the gleaming zippers and decorative grommets.  The entire outfit has a funky, casual feel and I decided to play up the Boho vibe by wearing a hairstyle with a golden headband.  The package includes sizes for classic avatars as well as fits for mesh bodies.  You can scoop up this budget friendly complete outfit for yourself down at The Cart Wash, but hurry, the event ends November 1st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Bustier in Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
    • Pants in Classic Mesh XS, S, M, L, XL and Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
    • Eve
    • Freya
    • Hourglass
    • Maitreya
    • Physique
    • TMP
    • Venus

Here’s a close up picture so you can see the detail in the necklace and bustier: Savanna

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Finally a Quiet Moment

A Quiet Moment

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m just sitting here, relishing the peace and tranquility at the Oh Deer sim.  I befriended this adorable tabby, but I’m not sure if he and the pupster will get along.  Speaking of Ripley, he and I found yet another great deal at The Cart Wash Sale this week.  Every time I go back, I discover something new to try.  Good thing for me the event continues on until November 1st!

Double Duty

Over at the Emerald Couture display, you can scoop up this cheery Fanni top for only 10L, which can be worn as a long shirt as I have done in my photo or as a dress.  I really like the flexibility with this top.  A plunging neckline adds a sexy touch.  With its bright crimson hue and scattered flowers,  Fanni has an almost Oriental flair, so I slipped on the Aran Jewelry set from Dressed by Lexi.  For only 10L, you get the necklace and a coordinating pair of earrings.   The silver pendant was the perfect accessory!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • eBody
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

Finishing the Look

Since autumn temperatures have rolled in, I opted to pull on a pair of black leggings which also came from the Emerald Couture display.  My EC Satin Leggings hugged my curves and contrasted beautifully with the red color of my top.  These bottoms will work well with a variety of other outfits, so as soon as I saw the price of only 10L, I quickly added them to my inventory.  With fits for many mesh avatars, you’re sure to find an option that works for you.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass (for flat and high feet)
  • Isis
  • Maitreya (for flat and high feet)
  • Physique (for flat and high feet)
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • eBody
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Mesmerizing Margo

Margo

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to introduce you to Margo, this amazing free Catwa head applier that you can scoop up as a group gift.  Isn’t she just beautiful?  As soon as I tried on the October gift for members of the Wow Skins group, I just knew I had to tell you all about it!  With dark eyebrows and a tan skin tone, this gorgeous flawless complexion is sure to become a favorite of mine!   In case you would prefer not to be a brunette, Sawsan Secretspy, the generous designer at Wow Skins, also included a no brow option so you can add your own brows to match your hair color.  I slicked on a touch of liner to accent my eyes, but other than that, what you see in my picture is the skin right out of the box.  The Wow Skins group costs 450L to join, but membership gives you access to all previous group gifts, plus group-only lucky boards, midnight mania offerings, and two group-only lucky chairs as well.   This skin alone is well worth the fee!

Until my next post, happy shopping!

That Golden Glow

A Golden Moment

Hello Fabulous Readers!  As Ripley and I took an evening stroll through The Mill, the rays from the setting sun washed over us, horses nickered to each other in the distance, and twin windmills spun lazily in the background.  What a lovely way to end a Monday!

A Golden Moment

The gold hue of my new Eliane pants from Well Made shimmered beautifully in the sunlight.  With a curve-hugging fit, rolled cuffs, and a baroque-style print, these trousers were ideally suited for a casual evening walk, but I could also see them as part of a dressier outfit, depending on what you decide to pair them with.  Best of all they are a free gift for members of the Third Life Group, which has a teensy 10L join fee.  With versions for classic as well as mesh bodies, you’re sure to find a size just right for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer
  • Belleza Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

To Top it All Off

My Fusion top in gold was a 60L Marketplace find from Purple Moon Creations.  Using my Omega Relay HUD, I was able to apply the tank to my Maitreya mesh body, then wore the semi transparent flexi vest over top, which gave the outfit a romantic feel.  In addition to the Omega applier, the package includes the base shirt in underwear, shirt, and jacket layers for classic avatars.

Well, that’s a wrap for tonight.  Ripley is pacing and staring at me with his deep chocolate eyes, reminding me that he is s-t-a-r-v-i-n-g (even though there is plenty of dry dog food sitting in his bowl as I write this post).  I think he is holding out for some canned….  Until my  next post, happy shopping!

An Unexpected Journey

Ripley, What Have You Done?
Hello, Fabulous Readers!  Today, Ripley and I returned to one of our favorite sims – Deciduous.  We traveled down a path we had never explored before, and stumbled across a lovely cove complete with a gentle surf calmly lapping the shore.  An old wooden rowboat sat abandoned on the beach.  Ever curious, the pupster trotted off to investigate.  He hopped aboard, and began sniffing the cushions piled in the stern section of the boat.  Glancing back at me, he gave me that “I’ve found something interesting!” look, so I joined him.  That’s when our curious adventure began.  Unexpectedly, the ancient craft unfurled wings and soared into the sky.   While I stumbled and attempted to keep my balance, Rip happily faced the bow, his nostrils twitching in the wind, and his tail wagging gently with anticipation. “Oh, Rip, what have you gotten us into this time?” I wondered.

At Least I Looked Lovely…

Whatever magical kingdom we were about to visit, I was comforted by the thought that I was dressed for a fairy tale adventure in my free Princess Pink gown from GIULIADESIGN.  This gorgeous flowing frock features a plunging neckline, delicate shoulder straps, and a whimsical criss-crossed tie that accentuates the waistline.  Pale roses adorn the fabric which shimmers in the sunlight.  The gift for members of the SL Frees & Offers group also includes a coordinating clutch, which I must have dropped in my moment of panic when our vehicle sprouted wings.  You can add this “fit for a princess” gown to your inventory completely for free.  Simply activate your SLF&O group tag (the group is also free to join), teleport over to the shop, and give the vendor a quick tap.  It will be almost as if you have a built in fairy godmother to equip you for the ball.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for Classic avatars with a “feet” and “no feet” verison
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Here’s a close up of my stunning new dress taken after we safely returned from our visit to the magical kingdom.  As you can probably tell from the picture, I was quite happy to be standing once again on the shore at Deciduous!

Safely Back on Land
Although I sent Ripley on a search and rescue mission to recover my lost bag, he was unable to locate it.  If you travel to the sim, and happen to discover a pink evening clutch, would you please send it my way?  Until my next post, Ripley and I will be keeping ourselves firmly on solid ground (right boy?).  Happy shopping!

Lavender Skies

Lavender Dawn
Hello again, Fab Free Readers!  Ripley and I went out early for our walk this morning in RL.  By the time we got back, the powerful sun was beating down, and we both knew it was time to head to SL for some cooler temperatures.  We found the ocean breeze and the crash of the waves at Banana Bay refreshing after our desert walk.

A Scattering of Pretty Petals

My strappy Rosse Dress from Kendrasy Creations features an all-over floral print sprinkled across a white background.  Its sleek fit flattered my figure, while still providing coverage in all the right places.   Packed with realistic details such as stitching on the hem, and folds in the fabric, this charming free gift for the Mesh Body Friends group made a delightful addition to my SL wardrobe.  Since the group is free to join, I was able to scoop up this darling mini for a song.  Happy dance time!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

The pupster and I are off to seek out more budget-friendly Fabulous Finds to share with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Wait, I Thought We Were Falling into Autumn!

Fall into Autumn

Hello there, Fabulous Readers.  Whew,  we made it to the weekend!  I was hoping the cooler weather we had last week was here to stay, but sadly the desert has warmed up again.  So, the pupster and I will probably spend more time on SL, which undoubtedly will lead to more Fabulous Finds to share with you.

Fall into Autumn…

Oh, how I wish I could be basking in cooler temperatures, but at least I can look beautiful in SL, especially in my new sleeveless mini dress from Pink Passion.  The Fall into Autumn frock has a sprinkling of bright yellow and merlot-colored flowers scattered across a creamy white background.  The playful pattern conveyed a cheerful feeling, and I couldn’t help but smile when I donned my new outfit.   To scoop up the free dress for yourself, simply switch to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, and teleport to Pink Passion.  You’ll find the vendor on the gifties wall.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Isis
  • TMP
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Lara

Here’s hoping you are enjoying favorable temperatures in your part of the world.   If not, I am sure you can join Ripley and I as we explore the vast world of Second Life, and perhaps even indulge in some retail therapy.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Finding a Pearl

Where Time is Never Planned

Hello Fabulouses!  When Ripley and I visited Soul2Soul Bay, he befriended this little pup with a nose for a good book.  I couldn’t resist posing near the cute fella and snapping a quick photo.  Isn’t he adorable?

Pearly White Lace

My cream colored halter top today is part of a free gift offered by SnB Fashion to members of the Teleport Hub group.  I love the delicate lace layered over a solid white, bustier-styled top.  The package also includes a lacey skirt, but since the pupster and I were wandering up and down the beach, I opted to slip on a pair of faded blue jeans instead of the dressier skirt.  The gift contains sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh body versions of the outfit, so it’s quite versatile indeed.  The Teleport Hub group has a 10L join fee, but group membership makes you eligible for a plethora of gifts scattered around the grid, so your linden dollars are well-spent.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Early Morning Light

Desert Light
Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Weekend! Ripley and I have truly been enjoying the arrival of cooler temperatures in the desert. For the past two days, we’ve ventured out for long morning walks. The bright sunshine washed everything in our path with a clear, brilliant light, yet the air was still tempered by the early hour.  After many months of sweltering triple digits, we are savoring the arrival of more fall-like weather.

It May Be Cooler in the Mornings…

but it is still very warm in the afternoon, so long pants are not really an option for me in RL yet.  I was very happy to stumble across this cute Aurola outfit in the Desire shop on the Marketplace!  With a knotted crop top and sporty drawstring-style shorts, this casual combination was ideal for an early morning jaunt with the pupster.  Although I opted for a midnight hue with white piping, Aurola includes a full fat-pack, which offers 18 colors for the top, and 15 for the shorts, so if black isn’t your favorite, you have many other options available.  Best of all, you can scoop up this versatile top and shorts combo for only 5L!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Here’s hoping you are enjoying some splendid, early autumn weather yourselves.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Carefree Summer Stroll

Wandering Around the Grid

Happy Mid-Week, Fabulouses!  It was time for another walk down a country lane for the pupster and I.  Today, we have a fabulous 1L hunt gift to share with you from the Around the Grid hunt, and I hope you like this complete outfit as much as I do!

Summer Freedom

Rip and I have just a small amount of summer freedom left to enjoy, so it’s kind of ironic that the outfit we bring you today is called “Liberata.”  It features a criss-cross strapped crop top and sleek capris.  The black fabric has a gorgeous sheen and realistic folded texture.  One of the things I love about gifts from Brii Underground is that they are generally complete outfits, and Liberata is no exception.  My bracelets, top, pants, and wedges are all included in the prize package, as well as sunglasses, a necklace, and a makeup layer for Catwa Jessica, which I opted not to wear for my photo.  Right out of the box, you get a full outfit that will set you up from head to toe for just one little Linden dollar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh Top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for top and pants for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
