All on a Lazy Summer Day

Think Pink

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I put his talented nose to the test today and headed down the trail of the Lazy Summer Day Hunt.  Our first discovery over at Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes actually inspired my outfit.  I hope you are in the mood to think pink, because that’s where my mind went.  The best part?  My entire outfit cost just $26 Linden dollars!

The Inspiration

After locating the lounge chair hunt icon concealed inside Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes, I was inspired to put together this entire look just based on these cute Kendra sneakers.  My picture does not do justice to the intricate designs on the canvas of the sneakers, so I’ve included the vendor close up below.  I immediately fell in love with the delicate white blossoms and stitched swirls.  The white piping, sole and lacing are just perfect for completing the look of this casual set of footwear.  They are designed to fit classic avatars as well as Slink and Maitreya mesh feet.  A shoe base and alpha layer are tucked inside the folder.  To add these shoes to your inventory, all you have to do is find the hunt object and pay the teensy 1 Linden dollar price.  There is a hint giver in the shop if you don’t have a super sniffer dog 😉 or if you need a nudge in the right direction.

You Can Never Go Wrong With a Little Pink

The other day, I told you about a group gift that I had picked up just for being a member of the Safira Store Group, and I mentioned how there are 64 past gifts up for grabs.  Well, this adorable Mindy top is one of those free gifts.  Of course, I chose pink to coordinate with my new footwear, but with the included texture change HUD, I had the option to go with five prints or four other solid colors.  It’s like getting ten tops in one package!  Its ruffled trim on the hemline really ups the cuteness factor!  It is designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body.  You do have to be a member of the Safira Store Group to receive this gift, and there is a 50 Linden dollar join fee, but there are a LOT of other goodies available to members, plus group-only lucky boards, so I am super happy that I joined.

But You Said 26 Linden Dollars…

The final touch for my summer day outfit was a new pair of Worn Denim Shorts that I picked up on the Marketplace at the Bang Bang shop for 25 Linden dollars.  They are short but not too short and feature folded up cuffs and a beaded belt around the waist.  The jeans texture on these shorts is really well done and the stitching and button closure are very realistic looking.  The folder contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  I’m sure these will become a summer time fave of mine!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Horsing Around


Horsing Around

We are closing in on mid-week and I think it’s time to take some down time, and maybe play a little HORSE. For this post I picked up the Beached Bunny Hunt 9 prize at Freda, and my handsome guy picked up the July group gift at R2A. I think we look great on the court in our red and black. I also picked up this cute pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. Keep reading for all the what, where, and how.

Freda Beached Bunny Hunt 9 Prize –

My top and matching shorts are the BBH9 prize at Freda. They are cute as can be, and can be worn together or separate. The BBH9 is a dollarbie hunt meaning all prizes are just 1 linden. The hunt will run through the end of the month, so you’ve got a little time to hunt down this outfit at Freda. The outfit comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Ocacin, Voluptuous, and a “Classic Model Size M.” No alpha layer is included however. You’ll be looking for a beach pail full of sand.

Hint – Do not spread all that sand over the work table when picking your gift!

R2A July Group Gift –

The top and matching athletic shorts Blue has on are the free July group gift at R2A. This gift comes with a color change hud for some customization. It also happens to come in quite a few sizes, including some sizes for child/teen avatars. The following sizes are included with this free group gift at R2A: Signature Gianni, Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Nx – David, Tweenster, Toddledoo. The R2A group is also free to join at this time.

Vetro Poses Basketball Pose – 

Vetro Poses has quite a few inexpensive poses available on the Marketplace. I picked up their “Couple Playing Basketball 02” pose for just 15 linden on the Marketplace. This pose includes the his and hers poses, along with a basketball, and the option to have a basketball goal (not shown) included with the pose. I wanted to use a different basketball with this pose, so it was derendered and a different ball put in its place.

Another Lazy Day at the Lake

Another Lazy Day at the Lake

Happy Monday, FabFree! I hope the day is treating you right. Especially after our nice long Holiday weekend. I’m taking another day out here at the lake ’cause why not, right?

Hot Coco

It’s a must have on a camping trip and now a must have in the wardrobe. My cozy ‘Cropped track jacket’ is the latest free Group Gift from Coco. I can’t believe that this wonderful group is free to join ’cause there are a ton of past gifts still available. The Track Jacket is perfect over tank tops or, if you’re feeling sassy, all by itself.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

A Little Bit of Sugar

I love my new sweet as sugar bra top from Star Sugar. This is the ‘Sugar Lingerie Set’ and it is also the latest Group Gift up for grabs. You’ll get this cute top and a pair of equally cute panties in the set.  The included HUD will give you choice of eight color/patterns. The bra and the panties are each changeable so you can mix and match.

Sizes Included

  • One size fits most

Denim Daze

Last but not least are my cute new shorts. I’m always on the look out for good shorts that are a bit more modest than some SL fashions out there.I don’t like to be too “cheeky”, if ya know what I mean. These ‘Babe Shorts’ from Sugar Plum Boutique fit the bill perfectly. And at only 25 Lindens on the Marketplace you won’t break the bank.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

An Evening Walk

An Evening Walk
There is something sacred about the evening walk in the summer.  You should always make time for that wonderful pastime as the sun goes down, and if it’s in a scenic location and involves ice cream then all the better!

A Bit of Vanity

It’s the Vanity event’s anniversary!  And in spectacular fashion, they’ve got plenty of gifts to go around.  Join their group for FREE and get access to all the lovely gifties that are available at each stall.  Here’s what I’m showing you today!

  • FREE outfit by Rosary sized for Freya, Hourglass and Maitreya
  • FREE lipstick by Lisa Walker with appliers for Catwa, Genus and Lelutka heads

As a little disclaimer, I believe some of the group gifts are set to the wrong group at the moment, so be patient to get a few of them because I’m sure they’ll sort it out eventually!  These two I’m showing you though are set to the correct Vanity Event Group.

What will you find at Vanity?
