Deep Greens and Blues Are the Colors I Choose

Summer Day

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are back from our camping trip.  We had beautiful blue skies and no snow this time!  It was nice to get away, but it also feels so good to be home again.  The first thing we did this morning was to make a return visit to Ajuda SL Brasil to do a little budget friendly shopping.  We found a super cute casual outfit to share with you on this Monday.

Earthy Greens and Blues

I guess I have green on my mind since the pupster and I were out in nature for the past 6 days.  When I saw the Bettina Top and Shorts set from Cynderella’s as a free gift, I knew it was destined for my inventory!  With its loose fitting verdant crop top and pale denim shorts, this is just the right get up for an easy summer day.  The top features spaghetti style shoulder straps and a vibrant botanical print.  A coordinating floral motif and lace trim on the jeans echoes the theme, and a sturdy belt provides a finishing accessory.  The folder includes fitmesh for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh body types.  Best of all, you can pick it up for free, with no group membership required! I appreciated the fact that the designer included a note card certifying that the outfit is an original creation donated to Ajuda Brasil to be offered as a gift to residents.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes separate alpha layers for top and shorts)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I hope your work week is off to a wonderful start.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Kimono BoHo

Kimono BoHo

Are ya feeling lucky? Well… are ya?  Cause I sure am!

I was making my normal rounds today when I popped into Oubliette to check out the groups and the Lucky boards and Bingo! There was a big ol’ J on this awesome kimono and tank set! Lucky Lucky Me!

Kimono Boho

This is the ‘Midnight Velvet Burnout Kimono’ and it’s one of four lucky boards in the Oubliette mainstore. All you need to do is be a member of the free Petite Mort and Oubliette group and wait for your lucky letter to pop up and it’s all yours. The kimono and tank are one piece but you get a nice HUD of styles and colors for the tank. I love the relaxed boho look I’ve got going on here.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

 

Sweet 16

So, I took my boho self over to the grand SecondLife 16th Birthday celebration… and wooooow. There’s a ton to see and do! I was nearly overwhelmed. There are so many free gifts both at the main celebration and in the shopping area… I lost count of them all!  I may never open all these boxes.  But I was really pleased when the gift from Earthstones matched my kimono boho outfit so perfectly.

This the ‘Ferris’ necklace in moonstone and pearls and it’s Eathstones free SL16 gift. There’s also a matching set of earrings. Like everything from Earthstones, this set is absolutely perfectly made and simply gorgeous.

P.S.

Lastly, I have a quick note about my hair. While I’m not featuring my new hair, I want to pass along the news that Magika is finishing up their big Summer sale tomorrow, the 25th. All the hair in the store is 50% off. Even the deep discount hair. For everyone not just Group members. It’s a great time to grab those styles you had your eye on!

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

Happy Rezz Day

Happy Rezz Day

Happy Rezz Day to me!  What’s funny is I hadn’t even been thinking about it being my Rezz day today. I was puttering around taking pictures for the blog when suddenly Ms. Jezzixa Cazalet popped on the Prism Group chat and announced that she had just put up anew “Rezz Day Gift Giver” and was it anyone’s Rezz day? Cause if it was, she needed someone to try out the new board. I jumped at the chance! If  you heard a squeal of delight earlier this evening… yep… that was me, “Ooooh me! Pick me!”

Fiora

I hurried over and slapped that board quicker than you can say “Happy Rezz Day”.  This is the beautiful ‘Fiora Classic Dress’. Like everything from Prism, Fiora is beautifully made with clean, classic lines and bold colors. I picked this deep blue but you can choose one of five vibrant colors on the HUD.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • Fitmesh- XS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

The delightful Ms Jezzixa told me that ‘Fiora’ will remain on the Rezz Day vender for one full year. So everyone will get a chance to add it to your closet. Plus… in the spirit of giving back to the Second Life community, you don’t need to join any group to receive this free gift! Of course, I recommend joining the group to get in the know about all the lovely new releases and the group gifts that are all as nice as this one.

It’s always refreshing to see Designers offering high quality gifts for the men of Second Life.  As Ms. Aline said in her report on the Access Event, the men have not been ignored when it comes to gifts. Nearly every vender of men’s wear has set out a very nice surprise for us. And as Ms. Aline also said: beware the lag! Cam Shopping is the way to go.

All Access

All  of the following items are free at the Access Event when you join the free group. Just wear your tag and help yourself.

Let’s start with my decision not to shave today. Or should I say, selectively shave today. This suave razor cut is from Fe Style. Facial hair style ‘V. GG’ comes with a Catwa and an Omega applier.

Like the shades? These Steampunkish glasses are the ‘Epic Glasses’ from Noir. You’ll get a huge HUD to change every surface to your choice of one of four metal colors. A note here as well on the solid quality of the build. Every detail is spot on.

I know a lot of men don’t like jewelry but I’m not one of them. Like most things in life, it all depends on the quality of the piece. This pendant from Aitui fits the bill perfectly. This is the “Forged Steel Snake” in a deep mahogany color. The necklace is completely resizable to get a correct fit on any body.

Last but not least, my pose is from “Wrong” but it is so right. “W33” comes in four variations and includes a cigarette for the pose. (Don’t tell Juli… she hates smoking) I’ve included a picture of all four poses for you perusal.

Let’s Go to Brazil

Cat Tails

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope the middle of the week is treating you well!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to tell you about this casual jean dress that I picked up as a free gift, and then we’re going to hit the road for a camping trip.  I sure hope it doesn’t snow *this* time!

Darling Denim

The Verona Dress from Enigma Apparel features a snug fitting bodice, pockets galore, and a skirt trimmed with a checked pattern.  I really like all the detailed stitching and the frayed texture on the back pockets.  The hem portion is slightly flared and falls to your upper thigh.  To add this little number to your inventory, teleport to Ajuda Brasil Volantarios, and follow the “Freebies” sign.  Use the teleporter in the back left portion of the freebies building to go to the 2nd floor.  The teleporter directions are not in English, so here’s a direct link to where you’ll find the dress.  Right click and pay the vendor 0 Linden dollars.  There is no group required.  When I first visited, I cammed around and was able to buy the dress without actually teleporting to the correct floor.  On my return visit to check the link for you, I used the “area search” function of the Firestorm Viewer under the “World” sub menu, typed in “Verona” and clicked “show beacons,” which allowed me to directly locate the dress and purchase it without using the teleporter at all.  However you get to it, this denim cutie will not disappoint!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy shopping!

While making the rounds on the Grid today I happened to poof into Luas to see their 25L Tuesday offering. It’s really nice, by the way and I recommend the lovely dress they are selling but…. As I was standing there, bang… the Lucky Board called for “J”! Lucky Lucky me!!

I cammed over and this gorgeous and verrrrrry sexy kimono. “Aw nuts… that too sexy for the blog. Isn’t it….?  Lots of … um… anatomy on display. So, yeah, no. But it’s so pretty. No. We are a PG13 blog…. I could arrange my hair…..  I GOTTA HAVE IT!”

If you gotta have it too, just join Luas group for a mere 50L and wait for your letter to pop up. It’s as easy as that!

Beautiful Bliss

Beautiful Bliss

Well, I guess I had to get off the beach at some point. And this gorgeous gown was a strong temptation to leave the sand. Now, I’m more of a casual clothes person but some times it’s fun to really dress up and drop some jaws. I have a feeling this gown will be a real show stopper.

Blissful Beauty

This is the ‘Bliss Gown’ from another New-To-Me designer: Wild Fashions. I really love finding new shops especially when they are full of really stunning clothes. When I saw the ‘Bliss’ gown was the current group gift I just knew it was fate! Plus… the group is free to join! There are a couple of free gifts at the desk, so check those out too.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic mesh – XS-XL
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

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!
