Not Ready for Cold Weather

I wear short skirts_001

Not ready for cold weather…

I’m not ready for cold weather. It got nippy here where I live and then the weather warmed up yesterday and it prompted me to look for warmer clothes in Second Life too. So I was really pleased when I saw that Kom‘s November group gift was this really pretty (and versatile) short skirt. It comes in all your favorite body sizes and includes a color change hud with 7 colors to choose from as well. I was partial to this teal color which I paired with a blueberry gift top that I blogged a while back that you can now get on the marketplace for just 1L.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something pretty

I wanted a little something extra to go with my outfit so I stopped by The Forge to see what was available. Sometimes in-store gachas hold sweet surprises. I discovered the Boadicea’s Necklaces and really liked the celtic look and fine detailing on them. I gave the 50L gacha a spin and pulled one of the commons in “rust” which matched my outfit very nicely. The rares were quite beautiful as well and would be worth a few extra pulls to try to nab one at just 50L per spin.

Something Lacy

A Little Lace_001

Versatility…

I ran across a little lacy number that I think is simply… versatility incarnated. You could wear it as a dress or lingerie either one. This outfit by Kom includes a solid mesh skirt with a sheer lace top (I had to wear strategic hair) and has solid sleeve cuffs as well as a solid shirt collar with a dipping neckline. It also has the detail of several rectangular silver buttons on the sheer top. Overall it is a piece that is incredibly well done and moves with your mesh body like a dream (or at least it did with my Maitreya body). I didn’t experience any clipping at all, and I have an AO that moves quite a bit.

It says that it is only compatible with the Maitreya mesh body, but if you give it a try, you might be able to get it to work with other bodies.

The Kom group was just 20L to join to pick up this lovely group gift, and there were several other past group gifts up on the gift wall that were just as nice, making the 20L well worth it in my opinion. There were also gifts from other groups such as the Maitreya group, SL Frees & Offers group and so on… so there was a wall of gifts to be had if you make the stop to this main-store. Lots of goodies for your one stop!

Spending A Little, Getting A Lot

Snapshot_017Hello there Fabulouses!  Last month on FabFree, I featured a really cute group gift by Mishchino [HERE], and I thought it would be a good idea to take a trip down there again this month to see what was new in the shop.  Boy was I glad that I did!

Sold For 20L!

I *think* there is a new group gift to pick up there, and I will have to go back and check lol, because my eyes zoomed straight to this mermaid scale printed dress and I was lost in the sale.  I nearly fell over when I saw it was priced at just 20L.  There are several of the Olivia Dresses in different prints for sale on the same rack for just 20L as well.  There was no Maitreya version included for the body I normally wear, however the medium mesh size fit me just fine with the use of the Maitreya Lara Alpha HUD.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS – L Mesh
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Venus & Isis
  • Belleza Freya Natural, Perky & Pushup

A Couple Shopping Additions…

Since I was out saving a bundle of lindens (I’d have spent so much more on that dress… just sayin), I had a little extra for some Cosmopolitan Sales Room Finds!  I added a close up shot below so you can see the ARTE Shimmer Eyeliner and Supernatural Splash Necklace that are both available at great prices at the new round of Cosmo Sales Room.

Hey, Shit Happens

Snapshot_002
Good evening FabFree Readers! I have returned tonight to show off a couple more of the The Love Pink Hunt prizes!

If you are ever having one of “those SL days” and need a reminder that sometimes shit just happens for no reason, MELONopolis can hook you up with a big neon lighted décor sign!  It’s a pretty cool piece to have in your inventory and would be a great addition to lots of different types of decorating to mix things up a bit!   All you need to do is locate the hidden pink heart icon at the MELONopolis store and pay it 2 little lindens.

You might notice my dress is also pink, and yes –  It is also a Love Pink Hunt item.  This lovely pink mesh dress with the bow on one shoulder is also just 2L, available inside the hidden Love Pink Hunt icon at Dollle.

Enjoy your evening!

Frozen, but Not Frozen

Snapshot_004Well hello there Fabulous Readers!!  I have returned… Yes, back in my jeans again lol – to show you this awesome shirt and sweater combo that you can pick up at BlackRose as a free group gift.  This sweater is called Frozen, but you’ll be far from it!

You can wear this sweater with or without the shirt, but I think it’s cute the way it hangs out the bottom of the sweater untucked 😉  This group is free to join and there are a couple of other gifts to pick up as well, so be sure to peek at those too.

G’nite!

Make A Fresh Start

Snapshot_002
January is a great time for a fresh start, and if you think you might be in need of one, why not start small by participating in The Fresh Start Hunt put on by Gardenia Events?  This quick hunt with just 35 stops will leave your inventory stuffed with great treats, all for just 1L each.  You can even see a prize preview on their official hunt website so that you can decide if it’s worth your linden before you hunt.  Beware though… there are decoys.  Make sure you are buying the yellow star hunt icon, not an invisible prim named as you would think!

I was super pleased with the Long Sleeved Dress in a beautiful shade of blue that I got as a Fresh Start Hunt prize at Psy Designs.  This simple classy cut comes in several mesh sizes and mesh body fits.

Good Morning

Snapshot_004

Good morning Fabulous Readers! I hope you are well today… and I hope you are already a member of the Siss Boom inworld group, because they have just put out the sweetest lingerie set as a group gift.  This feminine Pink Roses Bra & Panty Set comes in system layers and an Omega Advanced applier.  The group is 300L to join and there are several other group gifts to pick up in the shelf!

I should also mention the items that I put together for this set too, because they were all very affordable and under 75L, aside from the Scarlet Creative Anya House build… which was a minimal 188L at Collabor88!  If you are familiar with Scarlet Creative builds – this is a steal!!

I was visiting the Black Bantam shop yesterday and found their Vintage gacha machine that plays for just 65L.  I have used the Vintage Vanity, Vintage Ruler Box, and Vintage Tin Vase in this shot.  The Vanity of course, is the rare piece in this set, however it was really quite easy to get, in fact I had multiples in a handful of plays!  You can find the Floral Round Rug and Vintage Teacup Planter priced at 20L in the junk. marketplace store.  These adorable little “My Puppies” are Fawny’s N21 (N21 ends today, I imagine they’ll be at the Fawny mainstore after today) gacha offering, playing at 75L a try.  Even my Innocence Pose by Secret Body was just 30L on the marketplace!

I just love when it all comes together affordably!  Have a super day 😀
