Brights and Bold

I had to help myself to this well tailored shirt from Meva as soon as I saw it. This is the ‘Marcus’ dress shirt and it is part of a set offered to the L’Homme readers. The shirt comes with a pair of matching pants. It’s called orange but I see it more as a sunshine yellow. It made me think of tropical vacations and margaritas in a sidewalk café. So that’s exactly where I’m headed off to.

Today is My Day

Feeling the Magic

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ripley and I roamed the grid and discovered a free complete outfit that we think you’ll enjoy.  It comes from a new-to-me store and I think its a fun casual look just right for a Sunday evening.

Are You Feeling Lucky?

Over at the Mangula shop, there are a 24 lucky boards that require no group membership.  All you have to do is wait for your letter appear and you can pick up the outfit for free.  This adorable Laila set is one of the items you can win if your luck holds out.  The folder includes two top styles and a skirt.  I just love the off the shoulder design and soft blush pink color of the shirt.   The fabric texture of the blouse is really well done and features a checked pattern of delicate holes in the sleeves and body of the top.  The gift includes the bodysuit version of the top, but a separate blouse is included as well.  The skirt’s asymmetrical hemline ends with a torn denim edge that lends a casual flair to the outfit.  Twin butterflies grace its back pockets.  The folder includes versions for several mesh body avatars.  Best of all, it is completely free.  The only thing you will have to invest is a bit of time while you wait for your letter to appear.  If you don’t have a lucky dog like the pupster, you might want to bring along a trusty four leaf clover or lucky penny with you.  🙂

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Lara

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

Elemental Forces

Rose

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I was in the mood for a dramatic pop of color today, and I found it in the sexiest little dress that I picked up as a prize in the Elemental Desire 2 Hunt for just 25 Linden dollars.  I am super excited to share this one with you!

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The Vespera Dress from Ambient Fashion features a curve-hugging style that will have you looking and feeling red-hot.  I just love the cut outs in the front of this frock and the way the back plunges dramatically low.  The fabric has a subtle geometric pattern that catches the light when you move.  This little number is perfect for a Friday date night!  Best of all, the package includes versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars.  To add this racy little mini to your inventory, all you need to do is locate the hunt object – the symbols of fire, air, earth and water on a black background – hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a handy hint giver on the hunt poster on the wall.  If you’re feeling really adventurous, there is also a 1 Linden dollar prize for the same hunt in the store as well.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • eBody Curvy and Classic
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

The Elemental Desires 2 Hunt runs until August 25th, so you still have plenty of time to discover some Fabulous Finds along the trail.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Oh, those Summer Nights

Summer Nights

I have to admit… I am not always a fan of hot summer weather. I don’t like heat and I don’t just get sunburned… I burst into flames after ten minutes in the sun. And yet, I do love the beach…. and I LOVE the summer nights. The relief from the heat, the lightning bugs blinking everywhere, the glory of a full moon. Love it.

Summer Nights

Fashiowl must love summer nights because that’s the latest pack of gorgeous poses that are your for free at The Liaison Collaborative. The pack includes five poses each with a floating lantern prop. You just need to join the Liaison Group and help yourself.

I found a sweet new little dress to enjoy my summer nights in from a New-To-Me designer. This is the “Rori” dress from Pink Mango and it a free gift for Third Life group members. I just fell in love with the soft pastels colors and the dress itself is a quality build.  There are a ton of free and almost free gifts set out at Pink Mango including a gift for their own group for a small 5L joining fee.

Oh The Places You’ll Go

Four Wheelin'

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I took off for the desert this past weekend and had a blast.  We dropped the old truck down into four wheel drive and made our own roads.  Of course, any trip out into treacherous terrain needs clothes suitable for the task, and it was the perfect opportunity to get my newest top broken in.  I picked it up free as a group gift.

Roam if You Want To

Over at the [ContraptioN] shop, I discovered the Roamer’s Top in Sundown set out as a free gift for members of the L’Homme Magazine Group.  With its black fading to red color scheme, long sleeves and high collar, this shirt is ideal for a day out roughing it.  The designer included great visual details such as the silvery design emblazoned on the sleeves, the realistic wrinkles in the fabric and the buckled strap that extends diagonally across the chest.  The folder contains versions for a variety of mesh body avatars.  This gift is the “Sundown” edition, which has just one color scheme.  A single texture HUD is included so that someone owning the full fatpack of the Roamer’s Top can use the HUD to mix the unique textures of this special edition with options found in their full collection.  Since the L’Homme Magazine Group has no join fee, you can add this rugged top to your collection for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Geralt
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

May All Your Blues Be the Ocean and Sky

Summer Blues

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a lovely Saturday.  Ripley and I paid a visit to the Love Cats sim this morning.  It is truly beautifully done, and if you are looking for a quiet spot to relax, I’d highly recommend it.  Another trip I’d suggest is to the Leigh shop.  I picked up my new frock for free, just for being a member of the Leigh store group.

Darling Damask

The beautiful Desired Dress features a soft floral pattern across a slightly faded background color.  The fabric itself is well done with realistic wrinkles and stitching.  Side slits ensure you can easily maneuver and slender straps allow your shoulders to soak up some summer sunshine.  I chose the blue color variation, but with the enclosed HUD, you can select from 10 options, which you can then tint with 20 additional hues.  This little number is highly customizable, which makes it seem like you are getting an almost endless number of dresses in one folder.  Versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars are included in the gift.  Best of all, since the Leigh group has no join fee, you can truly pick up the Desired Dress completely for free!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Avatar in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer included)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • The Mesh Project Classic

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Just a Little Bit


Just a Little Bit

A brat?! Who me? Maybe just a little bit. lol For today’s post I have 3 goodies to share with you, the Cae Saturday Sale item, a free group gift by Beautiful Hustler, and a free wearable demo from Alaskametro.

Cae

For the Saturday Sale only, Cae has out a sassy choker/collar that reads “brat” in pretty cursive. It’s highly detailed, and marked just 75 linden. Included in the package is the choker in two versions (with or without peanut), and a color/texture change hud that will let you pick from several metal, and gemstone options.

Beautiful Hustler 

Next up for this post, Beautiful Hustler has a new free group gift out. This long sleeve slightly cropped top and the glittery striped pants are free to all Beautiful Hustler group members. At this time the Beautiful Hustler group is free to join. The pants have a long tailored look to them with a small cuff at the bottom. The top and pants can be worn separate and come in multiple sizes.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

Alaskametro

Lastly, I picked up a wearable demo lipstick by Alaskametro for free on the Marketplace. This Catwa applier lipstick with rust colored lip and gold flecks is just really pretty. Definitely play with the opacity for the lipstick layer on your Catwa head while wearing this lipcolor. I think it’s pretty at multiple levels. This free wearable demo lipstick applier includes the color shown only.

Unless It’s Got a Dirt Road…

Dirt Road

Hello Fabulouses!  For my walk down a country road with the pupster, I put together a fun, casual outfit with two budget friendly separates that look like they were made for each other.  One of them is a free group gift, and the other is something I can pretty much guarantee you already have in your wardrobe! Sound intriguing?

Rocking Those Polka Dots

After joining the store group at Monomania for 50L, I had a plethora of group gifts just a click away.  The My Sweet Jeans Top practically called my name.  Created in a playful, late summer style with narrow shoulder straps, a bra-like fit and a delightful ruffled hem section, this cropped top features double strands that meet in a bow in back.  Cheery white polka dots grace the medium blue denim fabric.  I don’t know about you, but I am always extra happy when I wear polka dots!  While you are in the shop, you might want to pick up any or all of the *29* other free group gifts on the wall.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Thank You, Monique!

I knew I wanted to slip into high-waisted blue jeans to coordinate with my top, so I did a search for “jeans” in my inventory.  I tried on ALL (and I do mean all) of the jeans I had (queue the Sponge Bob *two hours later* clip), but just could not get the look I was going for.  My coffers were all but empty, so I knew a shopping spree would have to wait.  Desperate, I decided to peruse my “closet” once more.  Down at the bottom of my inventory, in the Initial Outfits of the Library folder, I spotted “Monique Jeans.”  Monique…. it sounds chic, and classy, which happened to be the look I was going for.  What the heck?  I thought, I’ll give it a go….it can’t hurt.  I am *so* glad I did!  I tried to wear the jeans individually, but for some reason, Firestorm wasn’t cooperating, so I just wore the whole avatar.   Now, Monique herself was not a look that I can rock, but her jeans – oh yeah- just what I wanted!  They are the right shade of blue, with slightly flared cuffs, a high buttoned waist, and the price was an absolutely perfect zero Linden dollars.  Piece by piece, I put the real me back on, alphaed out my legs, added the top, and was completely satisfied with the end result.  I hope you like it too!

Until next time, Fabulous Readers, happy shopping!
