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!

Oh How They Sparkle

Summer

Hello there, Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  The pupster and I decided to check out the Sizzling Summer Sale down at The Wash this morning and we discovered this adorable slip dress at the Baci Shop display for just 1 Linden dollar.

Oh How They Shine

In my last post, I had discovered stripes in my nautical outfit, but today I found stars scattered across a light blue background.  As you can tell from my photo, they almost look like white polka dots from a distance.  Red trim along the hem and neckline as well as the shoulder straps creates a pop of color that I really like.  Vertical piping emphasizes the curve-hugging fit of this flirty frock.  Although it’s called the “4th July 2019” dress, it’s definitely a piece I will wear throughout the summer.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Ripley and I are off to see what other Fabulous Finds we can discover at the Sizzling Summer Sale at The Wash.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Day into Night

Day into Night

After all of Juli’s posts about how great the SL16B gifts are, I had to check it out for myself. I braved the lag and found a few nice gifts for us guys.

A to Zed

I saw these great shoes were the gift Zed was offering and I was so intrigued, I had to check out the rest of their offerings. I’m rather pleased I did. There are several gifts scattered about the shop. A very smart high necked sweater with a large HUD of colors and this full ensemble suit. I like the unusual choice of a tee shirt instead of a collared shirt and a chain necklace instead of a tie. Sometimes edgy is a good thing.  The ‘Lovers Day’ suit comes with the blazer and shirt combination, the pants, the dragonhead chain, a bracelet and it’s own set of shoes. There is also a matching cocktail dress for the ladies on the women’s side of the shop.

Sizes Included

  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh – S-L
  • Signature – Geralt, Gianni
  • SLink
  • TMP
  • Shoes – SLink and Standard

Head to Toe

Now, about these shoes. The ‘Winklepicker Pikes’ ( it’s a style of shoe or boot worn from the 1950s onward by British rock and roll fans.) are Zed’s official Second Life 16th Birthday Celebration Free Gift. The generous Zed has given us the entire fatpack of the shoes so you should find a color and style that suits your every outfit.

Sizes Included

  • SLink
  • Standard (Resizable)

Roller Girl


Roller Girl

Come skate with me Fab Free! It’s always sunny in Second Life, so why not take advantage of the never-ending sunshine and cruise around the boardwalk while listening to some tunes. This cute roller girl look is made up almost entirely of free or inexpensive items, including the free-for-everyone bikini gift at Glitzz.

The month of June may be close to an end, but Pride is always. Needless to say I was excited to find this cute rainbow bikini for free at Glitzz, no group needed. It comes in a handful of sizes and includes a hud to change the metal bits that are part of the ties. To get your copy of this free gift, head over to Glitzz and find the gift vendor near the back of the store.

The blue striped knee socks are a dollarbie Marketplace find by a store called *1* Tsutsujiya Overknee World. They come in a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Maitreya applier.

Finally, these cute skates are another Marketplace find. I’d tell you the store name, but there doesn’t appear to be one. One quick side note, I think it’s worth mentioning that the creator’s profile is now completely blank. That said, these skates are just 49 linden on the Marketplace. Also, there are a few other versions for the same price. These skates come with resize scripts and have a skate AO that takes over when you walk or run. I did have to turn my regular AO off to have the skate animation work properly.

I hope you have as much fun with this Roller Girl look as I did!

Here are the details:

Hair – TRUTH Aislin – Brunette
Head – Catwa – Koura
Headphones – Petite Mort RSD Pink Headphones 50L/Play *Originally Shown Here
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Bubble Gum – Pink Fuel Bubble Gum
Bikini – [Glitzz] Glenda Bikini – Pride Gift – 0L Free Gift

Socks – *1*Tsutsujiya Overknee World – Striped Sky-blue/White Overknee Socks – 1L on the Marketplace

Back to Bora Bora

Back to Bora Bora

A few posts back, Pru showed us one of two gorgeous tropical themed group gifts from Beautiful Dirty Rich. Normally, we don’t “double dip” but this pant and top and shoes set was just too cute to leave behind. So get your sunscreen and your coconut drinks and let’s head back to Bora Bora!

Tropical weekend

This great complete outfit is “Weekend in Bora Bora” from Beautiful Dirty Rich. Yep, you get the top, the super cute flared pants AND the heels all for free! Just wear your group tag and help yourself. Now that would certainly be enough but wait there’s more… (cheesey announcer voice) You will get a huge HUD with ten ‘sets’ of color patterns. Each tropical pattern set has two color or pattern choices for both the pants and the top and three choices for the color of the crochet insert in the pants. Talk about mix and match! If that wasn’t enough… the sandals have ten color choices to color the entire shoe and ten choices to color just the fabric part with a wood grain heel. Whew… Amazing!

Sizes Included

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

A Summer State of Mind

A Summer State of Mind

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I am feeling a tropical vibe tonight, and my clothing today fits right in with that theme.  Best of all, I picked it up for free!

Girls Just Wanna Have Sun

La Tuta, the latest gift from Tiar for members of Fabulously Free in SL features a botanical print in varying shades of green and is accented with pale pink trim.  With its off-the-shoulder styling and short skirt, this romper is ideal for warm summer days and soaking in the sunshine.  I really like how La Tuta’s waistline is adorned with a green bow that echoes the hues of the foliage.  To pick up a copy for yourself, activate your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor in the Tiar store.  It won’t cost you a single Linden dollar!  Tiar is celebrating 11 years in Second Life with a 50% off sale, so while you’re there, you might find some other budget friendly Fabulous Finds, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Here’s wishing you a happy Sunday and a fantastic end to your weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Cloud Nine

Cloud Nine

It isn’t often that Gabe is the one to tell me about a good deal. But, I guess it had to happen sometime. of course, I’m talking about the 7th Anniversary Cosmopolitan Event he just wrote about. But since there are oodles of gifts at The 7th Anniversary Cosmopolitan Event, I can get over being scooped.

Wrapped in Floral

It’s no secret I love a pretty floral print, the more vintage the better. So I was quick to grab this super cute wrap top. This is “Sonia” from FashionNatic and it’s the free gift at Cosmo.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

And Booted with Emeralds

Cute Boots! Need I say more?? These are the “Knit Sock Boots in Emerald” from Ricielli and they are gorgeous. You can zoom alllll the way in and each detail and texture is perfect! Cute boots AND a great build!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink

I’m on Cloud Nine

I skipped this little gift at first. I thought it was “just furniture” and I’m loaded down with furniture already. Then I saw what it actually is… a wearable cloud! Your own personal little fluffy cloud to glide around on!  Needless to say, I’ve been floating everywhere since I picked it up.  Now, I don’t think MoonRabbit meant for this to be a vehicle, per se. BUT… you can glide along as you walk since the cloud is a wearable. There are four cute poses in the cloud chair and I can’t decide which one I like best!

The 7th Anniversary Cosmopolitan Event ends on June 15th ( TOMORROW) so hurry over  and get your shopping on!
