25L Tuesday is over but…

I stopped by Sweet Lies to have a look around. It’s one of my favorite stores for fantasy roleplay wear. I happened to notice that the 25L Tuesday outfits are still out and couldn’t help myself… I had to snap one up to show it off. I picked up the Angelica fitmesh dress in White, but there are 3 other colors out if you don’t care for this one. The blue one is really pretty too.

One size fits all.

The dress only comes in one size… fitmesh. But I had no trouble fitting it to my Maitreya mesh body. I also tried it on with just my system body and the included alpha layer, and that worked like a dream as well. It’s a lovely design for a steal of a deal of only 25L. Hurry and pick it up before it’s no longer set out!

Doing a Bit of Decorating

A Bathroom Update

Doing some decorating.

My bathroom needed a virtual pick-me-up. I found just what I needed at Storax Tree. They are offering a lovely new gift for FabFree group members and since our group is free to join this gorgeous mesh rug is free too! It is just 2 prim and has mermaids on it and made me want to redo my bathroom space. (It also has a resize script in it, if you find it’s not quite the size you need).

So I set it down there… but I knew the little area was missing out on something.

The missing piece.

I picked up just what I needed at Mystique for 25L Tuesday. Thankfully, they leave their 25L Tuesday stuff out a few days after Tuesdays, so you’ll still be able to pick up this gorgeous sink and over the sink cabinet for the same 25L price that I got it. They come as a set together for the single price and the set includes poses (including some naughty ones if you are adventurous 😉 The set is 11 prim total together, but well worth it for the detail and poses you’ll be getting in my mind. Plus the price is hard to beat!

PS. If you don’t like the creme color I picked out for the sink, it also came in a brown and a pink for the same price!

Dark Grace

Snapshot_004
In time with Astrid’s 25L Tuesday post for today [HERE], I have news about another 25L Tuesday find that you might like!  Just in time for Halloween priced at just 25L today, Belle Epoque has this blood stained version of her very pretty fitmesh Grace Dress which she has affectionately named Dark Grace.

To complete my bloody look today, I have added the Punk’d makeup applier that has added bruised eyes, a busted lip and a bit of blood to the nose.  Not too blood drippy, just a little bit of beat up from a long night of dark mischief!  This is a free group gift at The Horror that is compatible with the system face in the form of a tattoo layer and also Omega for Omega compatible mesh heads… like my Catwa Candy Head.

My Secret Garden On Tuesday

My Secret Garden on Tuesday

It’s 25L Tuesday! Time to stock up on your roleplay wardrobe! On a Lark has out another lovely dress for the ladies… and again it is one that is versatile enough to be for roleplay or everyday. You can pick it up in a myriad of colors for just 25L each and this pretty dress comes in fits for Maitreya, Freya, Venus, Isis, Hourglass, Venus, and Werwolf. There are no standard mesh sizes in the package and it does not include an alpha, though if you did some fiddling, you might be able to get it to fit a standard avatar.

I decided I needed a place to lounge about and found the perfect seating courtesy of Crys Secret Garden. They have generously put out a gift for FabFree members.

Just join the FabFree group FREE by coping and pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about into local chat, clicking the link, and then joining the group.

Teleport to Crys Secret Garden and pick up this lovely rock garden with daffodils free! It includes 5 sits and is only 6 prims.

Just the Highlights

High Lights

For a limited time, Paisley Daisy has lowered their group join to only 10L so you can pick up their group gifts at a bargain. The August and September group gifts are both out. I’m showing you the pretty dress from August in the picture above and the September group gift is a sheer baby doll dress. The one pictured above is mesh in all the standard sizes and I felt it highlighted the last few days of nice weather… so it’s name was just perfect.

Today is also 25L Tuesday, and I was thrilled to discover beautiful shoes at Luas! These Dorothy shoes come in Slink or Maitreya fits in the box and you can get a choice of 8 colors for only 25L each. I picked up the ivory, but you may want to pick up something different… or one of each!

High Lights

I finished off my flowery look with a pretty necklace I found from Clever & Cool on the marketplace. This necklace was only 10L. When I first put it on, it had some serious bling, so I was skeptical, but then I discovered that I could turn that off by typing “bling off” into local chat and ta da! No more bling! It also allows for resizing and retexturing of the flowers into many different color choices besides the pink stones shown… so your 10 little Linden gets you a lot of necklace.

I love 25L Tuesdays! Especially when the goodies are versatile like they are today! On a Lark has out a beautiful new dress in lots of colors for only 25L each that comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fits for Maitreya, Physique, and Hourglass. This dress is a classic roleplay dress… BUT! It looks awesome as a go to dress for everyday wear as well… which makes it perfect for my inventory. And for the 25L price tag? I bought it in lots of colors!

I also stopped by Luas where my 25L bought me this awesome handbag and back-back set. You get both the handbag shown as well as a backpack (not shown) for your single 25L price. There were 3 other colors/designs, if the one in the picture above doesn’t suit you.

Full Circle 2

Chop Zuey also has out some beautiful new gifts that I wanted to share with you, and I really fell in love with their Circles Set. You can pick up the Circles Necklace in Gold as a group gift if you are a group member (the group fee is 350 but this gives you access to lots of regular group gifts). The earrings are a courtesy gift and FREE to all under the FabFree board. Just pay 0L and pick up the pretty matching earrings completely FREE 🙂

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Catch Me in your Dreams

Catch Me in Your Dreams

25L Tuesdays are a dream come true for roleplayers in Second Life… though I think this special item I came across today would please just about anyone. On a Lark has a pretty camisk out that roleplayers may just want to add to their wardrobe… and those of you who wear modern clothes could wear it with a pair of jeans and call it a pretty shirt. This is the “Envelop” top by On a Lark.

You can buy this pretty camisk today in a multitude of colors (and I do mean a lot of colors) for just 25L each. It comes in all your standard mesh sizes, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Belleza, Physique, and Hourglass, and each of the fits comes in two different textures for each color — a plain and a damask. Beware if you wear it alone! It covers the front but not the hiney (*winks*). I’m showing you a picture at the bottom of this post so you can see the pretty bow in the back that is the icing on the cake so to speak.

Pixel Box offered a weekend gift of a necklace Dreamcatcher that I added to my pretty look. This is a FREE TO ALL gift that you can pick up at the store. Sunday was supposed to be the last day that the gift was out, but when I checked this morning, it was still there… so I recommend haste if you like it and don’t want to miss out!

Like Clockwork

It’s 25L Tuesday again, my FabFree Dears!

Like clockwork

I found something in today’s round that thrilled my Steampunky heart! This is ‘Heliria’ from Mystique and it’s an amazing 25L offering.  Heliria comes with the rich chocolate brown under gown and the rough spun jacket as separate pieces in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L. Both pieces are wonderfully well built and the gown could go anywhere or any… when.  Then you also receive the cream colored ‘modesty shirt’ in the system layers and appliers for Omega and TMP. This is one really versatile outfit. You get your choice of a black set or the brown set I’m showing you.

My new hair style is also on the 25L list. This is ‘Lyanna’ from Calico. Lyanna is 25L per color group or a mere 150L for the fat pack. Calico also has a men’s/ unisex style set out for us for 25L Tuesday.

Like clockwork

If you want to get in on the 25L madness…. hurry hurry. It all ends at the stroke of midnight!

Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, FabFree-ers!

Tuesday

 

And you know what Tuesday means. It’s 25L Tuesday and I haven’t finished with the role playing. I found this lovey gown from Gor Gurls as their 25L offering : the ‘Gor Goes Pleated’. You get two versions of the dress for your 25L. One with the gold top I’m showing and one with a top that matches the main color of the dress. With eight jewel tone colors to choose from, I bet you’ll find one you love.  The dress comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha.

Just remember, all of the 25L Tuesdays items are specially priced just for today and go back to their original prices at midnight SLT.

Oh My Stars!

Oh My Stars! 1

It’s 25L Tuesday! And If you stop by Lua’s today you can pick up the Alma dress (which in my opinion is a STUNNING gown in one of three colors — black, red or purple). This gown comes in all the standard mesh sizes for a terrific fit, is strapless, and has a mermaid style skirt that is just delectable. This is one to definitely add to your inventory! And for a mere 25L, why not pick up all three colors? I’m modeling it for you in black, today.

Oh My Stars! 2

To add a touch of class, I picked up the FREE Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from Stars! which is this lovely jewelry set called Fleur. This EXCLUSIVE Gift set includes the pretty pearl and red gem-ed necklace, earrings, and two bracelets. Just find the little red t-shirt and you are all set.

If you are an avid photographer and noticed my fantastic poses, you should stop by Belle Epoque today as well. This lovely creator is offering two pose packs for the 25L Tuesday special. I’m showing you two poses out of the “What You Do To Me” pose pack, but there is another Pose Pack up for 25L that is equally lovely.

Enjoy your Tuesday!
