Can’t Take My Eyes Off You

Monday Monday

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I sure put his tracking harness to good use lately.  This time, we hit the trail on the Four Seasons Hunt 2 and discovered this gorgeous flowing skirt (called Petra) from Trashed.  Featuring an asymmetrical hemline, which is short in the front, but falls to knee length in the back, Petra drew many compliments as I wandered throughout SL.  A violet and green floral print splashed across a black background coordinates beautifully with a violet inner lining.  The waistline and side ribbons echo this contrasting hue.  I imagined the skirt trailing behind me on the breeze as Ripley and I strolled through the Mystical Fae Forest.  This has to be one of my most favorite hunt finds of all time.  I just adore this skirt!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Physique

The Four Seasons Hunt 2 runs until July 30 and offers gifts priced at 1L each, which are themed for one of the four seasons.   There are 22 goodies to be discovered from a variety of talented designers.  Ripley and I look forward to bringing you another Fabulous Find soon.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

I See You Eyeing My Coffee!

I "Sea" You Eyeing My Coffee!

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I escaped to NorderNey today for a morning walk along the shore, and Mr. Gully, here, thought I brought my iced coffee for him.  Silly bird!  Even the pupster knows better than to get between this girl and her java first thing in the morning.  Although it might not look like it in the photo, I was ready to make some Kat-The-Desert-Girl-Ninja moves to rescue my cup, if need be.

Sweet Skirt For a Mini Price

Since it’s currently a promo gift at the Fax Marketplace shop, the cute mini skirt I am wearing in my snapshot cost just one Linden dollar.  It features a curve-hugging waistline tied with pink laces, and a flared hem that offers a comfortable fit.  In real life, I love to wear just this soft shade of green, so when I saw it on the marketplace, I knew it was destined for my SL inventory.  I chose to pair the Lara skirt with a full perm cropped tank top, which I was able to tint a matching shade.  I used the “Show Color Under Cursor” command in the Developer menu to help me match the RGB in the top to that of the skirt, so it was easy to create a coordinated outfit.  I think they go together beautifully!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh
  • Mesh (I did not see an alpha layer in the package)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Side-swept

My new, free hairstyle is a Hair Fair gift from [elikatira].  My first time going through the fair, I completely missed this giftie because the display said simply “Color Demo” and I didn’t realize the little gem that was contained inside this gift box.  With side-swept bangs and long tresses draped over my left shoulder, this new ‘do fit my style perfectly.  It contains nine color HUDs packed with all textures [elikatira] offers, and, best of all, was completely free at the Hair Fair shop.  When you navigate to the store, the gift is located on the floor in the right hand corner.  Simply click the display and buy it for 0L.

Help Me, I’m Melting!

It’s another super warm day where I am in RL (116 degrees Fahrenheit – “HOT”! according to Siri), and I am trying my best to stay cool.  It’s a good thing I don’t have to worry about high temperatures in SL.  I can run the AC in real life, and while away the hours in complete comfort.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Time Out for a Sweet Treat

Any Time is Ice Cream Time!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to celebrate the weekend by making a special trip out for some ice cream.  It’s too hot here in RL to have ice cream outside, but fortunately, it’s never too hot in SL for some icy goodness!

I Think My Best Days Are Spent in Cropped Tops

The summery Lili bralet that I am wearing is a free gift for members of the Miss Chelsea group.  Although the group has a 100L join fee. there are still two other group gifts set out for members as well.  This cropped top comes complete with a 16 color texture change HUD, so it’s like getting sixteen tops in one.  In my photo, I paired Lili with a mid length skirt (more on that in a moment), but I also experimented with a full length maxi skirt and a pair of casual capris, and the top coordinated beautifully with each!  I love how the criss cross straps in the front add visual interest.    On a side note, from now until July 5th, Miss Chelsea is having a 50% off Summer Sale on all items excluding gift cards and gachas.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

The Whole Caboodle

For my photo, I chose to pair my bralet top with a mid length skirt, which is a free group gift from Caboodle.  A 25L group join fee gives you access to 11 group gifts plus 8 lucky boards.  Although I am sporting a black pencil skirt today, the free package also includes red and white versions.  With realistic folds, a ruffled hem, and a satiny sheen, the texture on this frock is spot on.  It’s perfect for an afternoon of shopping or a day at the office.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Well, I’d better finish my half of the cone before it melts (yes Ripley, the other half is yours!).  I hope you have a chance to carve out some time for a sweet treat for yourself this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Where the Wild Flowers Grow

Where the Wild Flowers Grow

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend!  Ripley and I started it off with a long walk in the woods at the beautiful Hobbiton Sim.  If you haven’t visited there, it’s well worth the trip.  The landscaping is beautifully done, and there are so many lovely spots to snap pictures, as well as places for dancing, chatting, and even some light-hearted role play.

Let Us Dance in The Sun With Wildflowers in Our Hair

For only 10L each, I created a casual and care free, bohemian summer look with a sweet top and denim micro mini from the Baci Shop stand at The Cart Wash.  The Babado top left my shoulders free to soak up some sun rays, and draped in soft folds to end above my waist.  Ric rac trim added a playful finishing touch to the bottom hemline.  Trendy and chic, a crop top is a summer wardrobe must-have, in my book.  Just in case white isn’t your style, the package includes a HUD with 80 choices so you can tint your Babado top to your liking.  The white hue of the shirt coordinated beautifully with my micro mini skirt.  The soft touch of lace trim helped tie together the outfit and added a romantic feel.

Playing off the bohemian vibe, I chose to wear a crown of daisies in my hair and held a bouquet of wildflowers for my photo, which I found at the La & Li Style shop on the Marketplace for only 35L.  A pretty, yellow, animated butterfly is included with the posies.  The cute little critter slowly flapped its wings, as it perched on a daisy.  If you’d like to wear a different hairstyle, an orchid for your hair is nestled inside the box for you to tuck in your tresses.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in sizes XS, M, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Uh Oh…

As I have been sitting here writing my post, some clods of dirt just sailed through the air at the edge of my vision. Ripley, tired of waiting for me to finish, wandered off and decided to do some excavating in a flowerbed at the Broadfoot Residence.  Oh dear, I’d better go see if I can repair the damages… I do hope we won’t be in too much trouble!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Somewhere Off the Beaten Path

Off the Beaten Path 1

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Some days, you need to take a detour off the beaten path, and that’s just what Ripley and I did this morning.  Not only did we discover a cool, green forest sprinkled with wildflowers, we also picked up a budget-friendly outfit to share with you.

Just a Dollar?  You Bet!

For only one little Linden dollar, I scooped up the C’est la Vie maxi skirt and bra top outfit at Mirus Designs.   There are two options available at the shop: the blue that I chose to wear today, and a black version, both priced at only 1L.  The texture of the fabric is well done, with a subtle sheen, and realistic folds.  The line separating the folds in my picture was caused by my pose; it doesn’t appear when you wear the outfit in normal use.  The skirt features a waist panel with decorative stitching, and a white string tied in a bow.  I really like the way the skirt drapes down to my toes.  The outfit includes a coordinating bra top with white stitching, and a halter style neckline with narrow straps.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Here’s a front view so you can see how beautifully the two pieces blend together to create this playful, casual summer outfit.

Off the Beaten Path 2

Ripley and I plan to do a lot more exploring today.  We’ll be back soon with another Fabulous Find to share with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Beachin

Snapshot_004
Hey there Fabulous Readers!  It’s another gorgeous hot and sunny Second Life day again today.  He’s resting up today, still recovering from his wild medical ride, but I needed some fresh air.  I’ll bring him back a milkshake on my way home!  🙂

It was just pure luck that I came across this beachy fun outfit as a free group gift as I was about to TP to Baja Shore for some sandy goodness.

Seriously…  All this is free!

At DM, you can join the FLG inworld group (which is free to join), and slap the vendor in the group gifts section to obtain the Summer Set that includes the skirt, top, flip flops, sunglasses and the bag!  You’ll be fully dressed – all for free! If this news wasn’t fantastic enough on it’s own, you should know that there is a texture change HUD included for the top, skirt and bag that allows for a pastel print, and a texture change HUD that includes SIX different prints for the flip flops!  The sunglasses are available in red and blue.

Sizes included:

  • Flip Flops: Maitreya, Slink, Belleza
  • Top: Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass, TMP
  • Bottom: Maitreya, Slink Physique & Hourglass

Hmmm…  What kind of shake should I get him?  Chocolate, vanilla or strawberry?
