Shield Maiden… In Training

Snapshot_004Hey FabFree! So… I started watching the Vikings TV Series on The History Network and I am really enjoying it so far.  With just a few episodes under my belt, I am learning quite a bit about the old ways of Viking culture (or at least how it is being portrayed in the series!) and am day dreaming of the steamy barbaric Ragnar Lothbrock.

We didn’t just make sandwiches…

Even the women were able to fight as warriors which is really cool.  They were called Shield Maidens, and this is what has inspired my warrior look today.

While I was at The Vintage Gacha Fair the other day, I  noticed that Bite & Claw had their Eowyn Gacha Set out at just 30L per play.  In just a few pulls of the gacha handle, I was set with a dress, accessories and the rare corset!  I added the free Bite & Claw Vintage Gacha Fair gift, which is the Ionna Circlet in black, and the Dragonfly Choker which was also found as a free gift at the event over in the Junbug display!  Both of these gifts are set to 0L, and no group join is required to pick them up!

Coquette

30L Saturday is always prime time to stock up on your roleplay wardrobe, and this Saturday was no exception! I found a couple of pieces that I fell in love with this morning and wanted to share with you!

Coquette

This Dionne Gown in Bronze is by Velvet Whip. I’m showing it to you without the optional scarf and undershirt, as I also picked up the silver owl Coquette necklace that you can see in the close-up below. The necklace is also from Velvet Whip. Each piece is only 30L each, and makes for a stunning addition to a medieval or gorean roleplay wardrobe.

The dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as three fitmesh sizes, so you are sure to find a good fit. The necklace is copy and modify to allow for adjustments as well, making 30L a great price for this beautiful piece.

Be sure to hurry though, these deals are only for today!

Just for Today

Just for Today

I love Saturday! And I love Saturday more when the 30L list comes out and I find something perfect to wear!

This week I fell in love with PoshTale‘s 30L offering. If you stop by the main-store location, you can pick up the Alysanne dress for just 30L. It includes the dress, the arm warmers and the scarf… plus a color change hud. The hud offers you 6 different colors and changes each different item separately so you can get a bit of mix and match (like I did in the picture above). Each part also attaches as a separate piece, again allowing you more dressing options!

This dress is mesh in all the standard sizes and for this much versatility and color, 30L is a steal! It’s just for today! So don’t miss out!

Fawning Over Fawny

Snapshot_001Hello there everyone :).  Today I wanted to stop in at the FabFree Blog to share a couple of things I learned about Fawny this week.  Fawny is most known for it’s super cute gacha pets, but they also make some very nice clothing for women as well.

The first bit of exciting news is that everything in the store (aside from gacha machines) is currently on sale for 50L.  I picked up a couple of things including the Spring Tenderness Dress I am wearing today.  I am not sure how long this offer is available, so act quickly if you are interested in checking it out.

The second bit of news is that you can join The Epiphany inworld group for free and pick up these adorable Sweet Sheep made by Fawny in group notices.  I found the Epiphany group joiner at the main desk of the Fawny mainstore.
Gift for The Epiphany Update Group

Enchanting

“Every age can be enchanting, provided you live within it.” – Brigitte Bardot

Roleplay is an important part of my Second Life, and I have long loved fantasy and medieval roleplay in particular… I think that is why I love 30L Saturdays. I am particularly enchanted with a couple of special finds this Saturday. You will have to hurry to pick them up at this price today before midnight SLT, but they are well worth it!

Enchanting 1

If you stop by Les Encantades, you can pick up this beautiful medieval mesh gown in all the standard sizes. The texturing is spot on, and I love the floral print. It can easily pass for many roleplay settings and would be lovely for any lady with the right accessories. It is well worth today’s 30L price tag.

Enchanting 2

I love adding small details to make an outfit stand out, and I was really thrilled with one of several 30L offerings from Moon_Sha. This Celtic Yggdrasil Necklace is only 30L and comes in both male and female sizes; so if it’s not your style, Ladies, point a deserving fella in the right direction!

Bathing Beauty

Bathing Beauty

I’ve already posted today, but I came across a nifty deal that was too sweet to pass up on!

Sometimes a girl needs a cover up… and a swim suit won’t do! Good quality rigged meshed towels can be expensive in second life, so when I saw that Lorien was offering their Towel Wrap for just 30L as part of 30L Saturday, I snatched it up to show you!

It has lovely details on the towel to make it a gorgeous addition to your wardrobe, as well as it comes in all the standard sizes. It’s perfect for bathing, the beach, after a shower, or bath houses! I’m going to use it for roleplay (the details are fitting for a medieval or fantasy sim) but its classic enough in design for every day use as well!

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 😀

La Belle

“Beauty is power; a smile is its sword.” — John Ray

It is often the small things and simplest pleasures that make us smile. I think that is why I love this round up of gifts and treasures so much. Alone they are simple… but together they are stunning. And they made me smile. Did I need them to be beautiful? Nah… but I felt beautiful wearing them.

La Belle 1

“Let us live for the beauty of our own reality.” — Charles Lamb.

I think Charles Lamb would have approved of the reality woven by the gifts above. [Muse] is celebrating 1000 members with this resizable Evil Eye Choker gift (though there is nothing evil about this gorgeous gift) which you can pick up for FREE with your NSP Floral Group tag. There is a 75L group join fee, but the monthly gifts and goodies make it worthwhile.

Seeing my own reality through that eye, I knew I needed something special to go with it. And Salt & Pepper didn’t let me down. Their group gifts are usually jewelry, but this month the creator opted to give this sexy black romper called Kiara as the group gift. It is FREE with your group tag and comes in all the standard mesh sizes. Again there is a small join fee (100L) but like NSP Floral, the monthly gifts makes it worth it.

I finished off my adventure into my own reality with a spin on the 30L Julianne Shoes Gacha at Belle Epoque. These shoes fit medium high Slink feet and come in quite a few colors to match just about anything in your wardrobe. I love the strappy, open-toe style!

La Belle 2

“The more often we see things around us – even the beautiful and wonderful things – the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds – even those we love. Because we see things so often we see them less and less.” — Joseph B. Wirthlin

I wasn’t done with Belle Epoque this weekend, though, as you can see in the picture above. Sometimes you need to take a little time to stop and smell the flowers. And Belle Epoque‘s 30L Saturday offer is just the thing to remind us of all the beautiful and wonderful things in life that we often take for granted. Above, I am modeling the Imelda Dress in Pink (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes and 3 colors – each for only 30 L!) and there are matching shoes for each color as well! The shoes are also only 30L each for this 30L round. Belle Epoque is leaving this lovely offering out for the weekend, but be sure to stop by before the end of Sunday evening or you will miss out! Hurry!

My necklace is a fantastic 1L Market place find by Cazimi Designs called Diantha Modern Girly Partial Set and was just the thing to set off this flowery dress. It came with earrings too (not shown). For 1L, the quality is hard to beat!

La Belle 3

“Beauty in things exists in the mind which contemplates them.” — David Hume.

Need something more studious? Belle Epoque‘s creator outdid herself this weekend. Well known for medieval fantasy, this FREE group gift with your FREE group join called Eleanor has a vintage appeal that with a few of the right accessories takes on a contemplative look that is just right for vintage roleplay, a date night, or even just casual wear. It not only includes the skirt and jacket in all the standard mesh sizes, but you also get the resizable hat as well.

For a little added flair, I made my way upstairs to the Shoe Gachas again, this time trying my luck with the 30L Emily Shoe machine. A spin won me the pumps in Brown which turned out to be a perfect complement to the outfit. I also paired it with this Sunglass Necklace I found on the Marketplace from BricOle‘s Designs for only 20L.

La Belle 4

“Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.” — Anne Frank.

On a final note, Belle Epoque‘s 30L offerings this weekend are incredibly generous and there really is something to make just about any shopper happy. Not only is the Imelda dress and matching shoes available this weekend, but you can also pick up the Berezia Dress in three colors for 30L each. I’m modeling it in the picture above in champagne.

And for those who love capes and hats but are (like me) distressed that you can almost never find hair to fit under them, this Berezia Cape from Belle Epoque in three matching colors with four hair color choices (again 30L each for this weekend only, so hurry) is the perfect solution. Like the dress, the cape is mesh, but comes in 3 standard sizes and fit perfectly with a fabulous ‘flow’ to it as you can see in the picture above — a great inventory “must have” for roleplayers… or anyone really!

Classy Girls

Snapshot_004Good evening Fabulous Readers 🙂  It seems SL is  undergoing some emergency maintenance and has every so rudely kicked me out lol, but lucky for me it was after I had these pictures already taken!  So..  I can share news of the classy new group gift at ANIN a GRIS with you. The beautifully textured ecru Sabrina Dress I am wearing today is the gift you can pick up after joining the FREE inworld ANIN a GRIS group.

Need a pair of sweet heels to go with your new dress?  These will cost you a little… but not much!  The SHEY Sweet Bow Stilettos that add onto the Slink High Feet are available on marketplace for just 30L.  The best part about this super low price?  It incudes a HUD that allows for 35 different colours, which means you can wear these with about anything!
