What You Always Wanted

What you Always Wanted

I always wanted a leather jacket.  Always.  Seems I could never quite find the perfect one, unfortunately.  To me, a black leather jacket is quite literally the most useful item you can have in your wardrobe.  It can give clout and toughness to even the girliest of outfits, which to me is always a nice counterpoint to any sweetness.  Don’t you think?

I am Fashion

I went by IAF today and noted that there are a whole bunch of FREE group gifts just waiting for you to claim them!  Today I’m showing you the Embellished lime bustier which comes as an applier (for both Omega and TMP) as well as system layers.  There are a whole bunch of other cute gifts for you to pick up too while you’re there, just join the free IAF group for free and they’re all yours!

Kisses for the Cart Sale

The Wash Cart Sale is going down right now, and we all know that means deals aplenty!  Love has shown you a few of her finds HERE and HERE, and I picked up my really cute leather jacket by Baci while I was nosing about.  It cost me a mere 25L, but hiding inside the bag you’ll also find some lingerie to go with it!  There are several different versions of this jacket to choose from, but I went with the classic black to match my outfit (it has a bit of hot pink writing on the back, which is pretty cute too!).  Loads to discover over at The Wash sim!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • S – L with an Alpha Layer

Right I need to go pretend to be tough a bit more!

Two if By Sea


Two if by Sea

Captain’s Log: The Nineteenth of March, Year Unknown
My Co-Captain and I set sail for an uncharted destination just a few days ago. Today, for the first time, we found land. Our steam ship ran aground in an unfamiliar location. Where, or even when our time travels have brought us, we cannot be certain. All that is certain is that we found our adventure, and we look absolutely smashing while doing so.

Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I promise you haven’t stumbled over a strange steam punk novella. I was just having a little fun with some of the fantastic Seam Hunt prizes my guy and I gathered. His hat, and our amazing jackets are free Seam Hunt prizes. In addition to the hunt freebies, I picked up an incredibly detailed free steam paddle boat that was just too cool to not share with you. I hope you enjoy these fabulous finds, and maybe even go on an adventure or two of your own.

The Hat – I think bowler style hats are really cool for steam punk attire. This particular Steam Hunt gift hat by Miss Darcy has some extra steamy details, both literally and figuratively. This cool hat has a “steam” effect that comes from the wheel handle on top of the hat when worn, not to mention the goggles which complete the look. You have until March 31st to hunt down the little brown cog and claim your free gift.

The Coat – I still cannot get over the gorgeous details of these tailcoats by Contraption. This coat comes in male and female mesh sizes, and includes a cummerbund applier, as well as a system layer cummerbund. Additionally there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the ascot/scarf and the little pin in the center of the scarf. Lastly, each of the sizes has an additional “bound” option for a corseted look. The best part is that this highly detailed piece is Contraption’s free Steam Hunt prize.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Slink Male, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake

The Spirit of Adventure

The Steam Paddle Boat – Believe it or not this ultra cool vessel is not only completely free, it has full permissions. I stumbled across this awesome freebie while exploring sims. This free boat can be found at the Alpha Tribe sim. Simply pay the boat 0 linden and you’ll find a copy of it in the objects folder of your inventory. Along with being cool to look at, this steam paddle boat has some animated parts, and 2 sit poses. There is a single pose at the steering wheel, and one up top at the organ. Lastly, since this freebie has full permissions, you can customize it however you like.

P.S. If you dig Blue’s waxed mustache, it’s a freebie too! You can pick it up for free at Kauna. Afterall, dapper gentleman would be complete without one.

Here are the details, may you have happy adventures!

The Hunt for Morris

The Hunt for Morris

Hey Hey Fab Free!  I’m waxing a bit nostalgic today because I did a bit of hunting on the Steam Hunt!  The Steam Hunt is one of the oldest in SL, and it is actually the first hunt I ever did.  My friend Eesoov introduced me to the concept of wandering sims keeping your peepers peeled to find little objects for freebies, and I’ve been hooked ever since.  The Steam Hunt is always filled with fun curios and cute outfits, and this year’s edition is no exception!

Steam Me Up!

One of the stops on the Steam Hunt this year is Sparrow by Design – a super cute art nouveau decorated shop that has all sorts of cute gifties hanging about.  I hunted for the little cog, and inside was this gorgeous Morris & Co. inspired coat dress that I knew I immediately needed to own.  I have a thing for British textiles in general (don’t get me started on Liberty prints), and this is a really beautiful SL version of one of my faves.  The best part is this coat is completely free, all you need to spend is a bit of time searching for it!  The clue is:

Green butterflies are my favourite!

Sizes

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

Well-Heeled

There’s a new group gift over at Mosquito’s Way!  They regularly churn out some really amazing gifts (and shoes in general), so this is a group to join and stay in!  Just join their group for FREE and click on the vendor and these sweet little booties are all yours.  I totally love them.   These shoes are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink for all your delicate stomping needs!

Who’s up for some more hunting?

In Between the Lines

In Between the Lines

You remember when you would read fashion magazines as a teen, and they always contained some form of quiz?  You know, like the type that told you what kind of guy was for you?  Well, I’d always do the ones that told you which style was yours, and annoyingly each time I would land somewhere in the middle of three categories.  Something like, one third rocker, one third boho and one third sporty.  I dunno if there was something wrong with my programming back then, or maybe I was catching on early to the fact that it’s really ok to switch it up!  Today, I’m feeling just a little rough and tough, though tomorrow I may show up in frills!  You just never know…

Syndicate Sunday Time!

Syndicate Sunday has rolled around again, and there are loads of great deals going on all over the grid.  Syndicate Sunday takes place during the week after the first Sunday of every month, and you’ll find loads of goodies priced at just 69 Lindens in some of your favourite stores!  I made my way over to Psycho Barbie and found this insanely awesome bomber jacket (I love the fact that it falls off the shoulders, and it happens to come with a fairly extensive HUD) for just 69 Lindens.  I also nipped by Astara and got these great celestial earrings for 69L as well.  There are lots of other goodies in participating stores, just check out the event’s website to figure out what you just can’t live without!

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)!

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!

Come Have a Drink With Me


You Need a Drink

Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs! It’s been a minute since I got dressed up to go out, and a few of the free group gifts at Casse Lustre gave me the perfect outfit for a fun night out. The Casse Lustre group is free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available. I picked this halter style dress, and off-the-shoulder faux fur coat to share with you. You’ll find the group gifts at Casse Lustre waiting near the entrance to the store.

The Dress – This swanky little halter style dress by Casse Lustre comes in the black version shown as well as an equally pretty white version. Both color versions come in a single unspecified mesh size. To get your copy, simply wear your Casse Lustre group tag and click the gift vendor.

The Coat – When I was in college I had a friend who was a fashion design major and she always referred to this sort of shaggy fake fur as “muppet” and I’ve never been able to think of it as anything else. It makes me laugh, and I love it. This off-the-shoulder fur coat at Casse Lustre is another free group gift. It also comes in a single mesh size, and includes a color change hud that lets you pick from eight preset colors (four dark, and four pastel).

Here are the details!

Hair – *Besom~Debrossi *Essentials*
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin –  Essences – Vanya
Eyes – Buzzeri – [Buzz] Celestial Eyes – Wolf
Lipstick – Lisa Walker – L.W MAGIC CRYSTAL LIP (CATWA) LIPSTICK 0.6

XOXO At Pixicat

The XOXO Hunt prize at Pixicat is the Breeze Tunic and it comes with a texture change HUD that offers white, back and red options.  I put a travelling boho spin on it with some bell bottom jeans, but I can see this beautiful piece going in so many different fashion directions!  Have fun with it 🙂
