Bring on the Night

Bring on the Night

Hello there Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  This week, Ripley and I happened upon a new-to-us store called Klara Original Mesh.  While I explored the shop, my bargain seeking hound padded up the stairs and sniffed out this gorgeous, full length gown, which is a free gift for members of the Maitreya, Gifts, Sales & News group (completely free to join).

Stylish Evening Attire

The Eva Night Gown features a high neck in front and a floor length hemline, paired with a dramatically draped back that offers a daring glimpse of skin.  I love the simple, elegant design, the lacey texture of the fabric, and the way the gown is slightly flared at the bottom so my feet are free to move.  In addition to this free frock, the designer also has four other gifts set out for various groups, plus 6 boards which offer generous discounts on dresses for Klara Waco Style group members.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Off to Discover More Fabulous Finds

I love the weekends when Ripley and I are free to wander the grid to locate more fashions to share with our favorite readers.  I’m sure it won’t be long before we return with yet another budget friendly discovery.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Are You a Good Girl?

Up From a Dream?

Are you a good girl?

It’s been a while since I posted a pretty free or low cost find for all of you amazing Fabfree Readers, and I’ve missed you! Real life has been pretty hectic for me this month. But I knew I had run across something special when I found this dress and pendant as part of the Good Girl or Bad Girl Hunt at Wicked.

You search for the little icon, buy it for just 2L and you get both this baby doll dress (which I think could double as a roleplay nightgown) and the beautiful glowing pendant. Somehow this ensemble gives me the impression that you could be either a good girl or a bad girl either one wearing it!

All the sizes you need in one box!

I was really pleased with the assortment of sizes this outfit came in. It is mesh (with a good alpha layer if you are still rocking your system body) but comes in lots of mesh body sizes as well. For your 2L spent at Wicked you’ll be getting:

  • Classic sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Psysique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya Isis, and Venus

***************

I’ve been very busy the past week, that I’m just exhausted. So I’m slowing down and taking a little rest. Today’s look comes from HORR Menswear.

My little friend comes by way of  Pop Art. The Milk Shake Cat is a FREE group gift to members and the group is free to join. My pose, Watching You from ENIIPose is a couples pose (/me looks around) but was cute enough to do as a single. I picked this up in-store for just $25L. I’ll see you after a nice long rest. 🙂

A Rambling Gypsy Soul

Rock Those Polka Dots
Hello wonderful readers!  I have an adorable, middle of the week Fabulous Find to share with you today.  I know it certainly brought a smile to my face when I added this free outfit to my inventory!

Rocking Those Polka Dots

Gypsy Chic’s free gift features a sweet, salmon-colored halter mini dress sprinkled with polka dots, and topped with a denim bolero style jacket.  Loosely fitted, with softly draped folds in the skirt, this frock is sure to flatter any figure.  I love the semi sweetheart style neckline, and the retro appeal of the entire outfit.  PinkMelon is a free gift for members of the TeleportHub.com group.  Although the group has a 10L join fee, there are so many goodies bestowed upon members, it’s a worthwhile investment.  The free package includes mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M and L sizes, as well as the requisite alpha layer.  The dress fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly once I adjusted its built-in alpha layer.  To add this adorable number to your inventory, simply activate the TeleportHub.com group tag, journey on over to The Event and Hunt Office, and give the gift board a tap.

Grateful For the Little Things

When I was out with the pupster on one of our shopping jaunts, we moseyed over to EarthStones, which just so happens to be one of my favorite jewelry stores in Second Life.  I meandered around the store, admiring the many baubles on display.  Meanwhile, Rip sniffed around, then excitedly grabbed my hand, led me over to the teleport board, and nosed the “Bargain Loft” section.  He didn’t have to show me more than once!  We popped upstairs, and in no time, I spotted the perfect accessories, priced well within my budget at only 75L each.  The Grateful Necklace and Bracelet, both in Ramble on Rose, echoed the pink and white tones in my dress, and suited my outfit to a “T.”  If you are in the market for jewelry, I encourage you to check out all the budget-friendly adornments available in the loft at EarthStones.

I hope you found something in today’s post to inspire you to create your own Fabulous Find.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

One more for the road…

I’m back in the Aesthetics body for one final look at The Springtime Aesthetics Hunt. My last look is from LeCock. The Springtime Denim Shorts and Tank Top is a cool look for the beach, the house or even out dancing. Be sure to check out the entire list of participating stores on the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt and remember that the hunt runs through the end of March.

And here is a list of all my posts from the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt:

While it has been fun to try a different look, I’m ready to “go back home”.   /me waves goodbye to Aesthetic Carson… It’s been fun!

Country Life

Country Life

She said I could rez anything…

After I was allowed to decorate a corner of the house [Here],  it was then decided that my decorating skills would be put to better use outside…     While she was out, I got bored and decided to make the outdoor space a little more “me”. I found the perfect pose prop for the side yard. The Country Life Pose prop by Something New is a FREE group gift to members. This is a group pose, but Chester the goat (yes, there’s a goat wandering the property) ate the other two pose balls before I could gather some friends. The tractor and the sheep are included with this pose (you wouldn’t want Chester). The Something New group is FREE to join.

Late night online shopping…

Another sign of bordom is online shopping. I was told by more than one person I should check out this deal on the Marketplace from Polo Paul (the place my glasses came from, btw). The Alpha Outfit was a steal at just $44L. The Mesh Boots and Mesh Hardcore Jeans both come in sizes XS-XL and the Mesh Leather Jacket w/ Shirt comes in sizes S-L with two fitted sizes as well. I finished off the look by finding the Paper Coffee Cup by Indolent for $10L, also on the Marketplace. When she came home, I did my best model presentation gesture to the tractor and in return received a stern finger point to the man cave…

I need a bigger man cave….

Three Stores, Three Looks, Three Lindens

Aesthetic 7

Treasure trail…

While working my way through the Springtime Aesthetics Hunt I found a Treasure Hunt Box full of items (too numerous to show them all) at TRIMMER BAY. So along with some other hunt items, I thought I’d mix and match a few the gifts for some unique looks. I paired the TRIMMER BAY Rib Knit Anderson Blue Sweater and the Stewart Boxers out of the treasure box for a chilly morning, fresh out of bed look.

Aesthetic 8

Ripped and ready…

I found the Ripped off Tank Top at The Mesh (s)Hit and went back to the treasure box and pulled out the Metallic Sport Shorts another TRIMMER BAY gift. A nice look for working out or to remind you of that favorite shirt you just refuse to throw away…

Aesthetic 9

Appin muffins…

And the final look of the day is the CODED Stud Muffin Tee and the TRIMMER BAY Tartan Blue Stewart of Appin Boxers. The boxers come with a matching shirt, if you want to be all matchy-match with yourself. All theses gifts are just $1L each on the Spring Aesthetic Hunt.

The Evolution of a Hipster

Hipster 1

A box and a box of smokes…

Serena messaged me and told me I was cray cray if I didn’t get down to The Hipster Fair as there were plenty of gifts to be had (and even a few gifts for guys). I popped on over and boy was it … PINK! Once I got used to the color scheme, I started going from store to store looking for the green mustaches for the guy gifts. I managed to find a few dollar gifts to make a couple of amazeball hipster looks to show you. The NIDOLO XIV Outfit can be picked up at the ARTIZANA booth for just $1L. This three-piece outfit consists of the mesh suit pants, mesh shirt w/ tie and mesh suit vest. The look is versatile as the vest and shirt can be worn separately. My Hipster Glasses are a $1L gift from KIB Designs. They come in both male and female versions and can be worn on your face or on the top of your head.

Tired of Walkman around…

I also found the Adam Sweater at the Trashed booth. This $1L gift comes in the standard XS-XL sizes and is a great casual look. The Classic Spring Camo Sneakers by The Man Cave is a FabFree goup gift that was previously shown [HERE]. My poses are by Image Essentials. The Evolution of a Hipster poses can be had at the Hipster Fair out of a gacha machine for just $50L per turn. You won’t be devo ‘cos you’re heaps povo with theses cheap gifts.
