Discovering a Pearl

Salt Breezes

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  I hope the day treated you well.  I can’t think of a better way to wrap up the first work day of the week than a stroll along the shore.  The pupster and I decided to meander along the edge of the sea on the NorderNey sim while the salt breeze playfully ruffled our hair.  Well, I guess there is one thing better….to be walking along the shore in a brand new outfit that you picked up for free.

A Touch of Serendipity

I’m a huge fan of maxi skirts, in RL and in SL, and when I was at The Free Dove gathering free hair to share in our group post {HERE}, this gorgeous Iced Pearl outfit from Luxe Paris caught my eye.  Featuring a dainty tank top with a pretty floral pattern and a sweeping broomstick skirt that is generously cut, this free gift offers simple elegance that can carry you from a walk along a beach to a summer’s eve date.  Pale blue strands in the top coordinate with the glittering waistband of the skirt.  The generous designer packed versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars into the folder, and also included coordinating flat sandals, which you can’t see due to my pose.  To pick up a copy of this gem for yourself, you need to be a member of The Free Dove group, but there is no join fee.  Just click the vendor and you are good to go for an ocean side stroll yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layers)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Sandals for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink as well as an unrigged version

Until my next post, happy shopping!

One Step Closer to Summer

Summer Vibes

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are eager to continue catching some summer vibes here on the Baja Tides sim, so we are popping in with a quick post to share our latest hunt prize.  This week, we checked out The Four Seasons Hunt and discovered this cute tank top over at Trashed.  Featuring a pale gray ribbed background and a vibrant pink flamingo chilling amid blossoms, this top was just what I needed to chase away the cloudy skies in my part of the world.  The designer added realistic details such as a curve-hugging fit, wrinkles in the fabric and slender shoulder straps.  I love the way the top is just a bit on the short side, which allows some of my hips to catch a bit of sun.  To pick up a copy for yourself, all you have to do is locate the hunt icon, a strawberry, and pay the 2 Linden dollar price.  There is a handy hint giver on the wall in the shop in case you get stumped.  It sure helped us out, although Ripley insisted that *he* knew where the berry was all the time.  He was just waiting to see if *I* could find it myself.  Silly boy!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • O-Voluptuous
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Out For a Stroll

Sunday Stroll

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start!  Yesterday, Ripley and I checked out the trail of the Scorching Summer Hunt and discovered this fantastic frock at Salty for just 1 Linden dollar.

It’s a Real Summer Scorcher

I really like the way the Emma dress has multiple layers of material, with a solid base fabric covered with a sheer lace layer.  Buckled, criss-cross straps add visual interest to the white color scheme.  Featuring a low neckline, a snug waist and a full skirt, this outfit is perfect for a day of shopping, but depending on the accessories you add, it’s also dressy enough for a date night.  With its short skirt, you will definitely be able to show off your legs, and you’ll probably want to make strategic use of the alpha layer of your mesh body to preserve modesty.  All you need to do to add this frock to your inventory is to head on over to the Salty Main Store, locate the hunt icon, which is a rosebud, and pay one small Linden dollar.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Trio For You

Sweet Spring

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a pretty spring frock with you that I picked up as a free group gift.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

It’s Really One of Three

This cream colored dress is the April gift for members of the Meva Update Group, but it’s just *part* of it.  Tucked inside the package are two other versions, so you get not one, but three dresses.  The sleeveless design, high neckline and scooped back make the Meva Flowers Dress 2 suitable for many occasions from casual to more dressy.   It all depends on how you choose to accessorize.  The fabric features delicate white blossoms scattered across a pale peach background, which creates a lovely design.  If this print is not up your alley, there is also a similar pattern scattered over a darker gray background, and a version which features a bold, vibrant floral motif.  The frock is designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to the shop, activate the Meva Update Group tag and click the vendor.  There is a 100L join fee, but membership grants you access to 9 other gifts on the wall nearby.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Is Today Your Lucky Day?

Crossing Bridges

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  In my last post, I shared the latest group gift for members of the Scandalize group, and today I’m back with a Lucky Chair prize that group members can scoop up for free.  Sleek and elegant, I think you will really like this one!

When Lady Luck Smiles

Featuring a crop top with a cute twist detail in the fabric and curve-hugging leggings, the Senuna outfit is comfy yet packed with sex appeal.  The off the shoulder style of the top allows you to soak up some sunshine while long sleeves provide contrast and coverage.  In real life, I often have trouble finding sleeves that are long enough for me.  I wish more of my tops had the generous length that these sleeves do!  Even with its dramatically dipped neckline, the shirt still keeps you covered in all the right places.  For a bit of variety, you could opt to wear the fuzzy version of the top, which the generous designer also included with the prize.  In addition, you have two options for the leggings, both of which feature the word “Scandal” across the waistband.  You can opt for solid black as I have done in my photo, or add some pizazz with the ombre version, which fades from ebony to a rosey pink.  Either way, you will look stunning!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

The Pupster

You might know that Ripley is based on my RL dog.  Although he is fairly young, he has been having health issues for the past month, and the vet is not sure what is wrong with him.  I dropped him off for surgery this morning, and would sincerely appreciate positive thoughts and healing energy sent his way.  We were hoping to put off the operation until he regained more strength, but he took a turn for the worse over the weekend, and it can’t be delayed.  If you pray, please keep him in your prayers.  I’m worried about my pal.

A Moment in Time

A Moment in Time

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Friday!  I’m popping in with a quick post to share a sexy frock with you that you can pick up for free, just for being members of the BlackRose Fashion group.  This sophisticated dress features a sleek fit which hugs your curves, long sleeves and an off the shoulder style.  I really like the texture of the fabric because it’s not just a flat black; you can see realistic folds in the cloth which add visual interest.  Simple enough to be worn during the day, this dress can carry you right through date night was well – all you need to do is add a few glittering baubles and a pair of dressy heels, then you will be ready for a night on the town.  To pick up a free copy for yourself, activate your BlackRose Fashion group tag, teleport over to Blackrose Fashion and look for the vendor on the service desk.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in S, M, L (no alpha layer included)
  • Belleza Freya and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I always love visiting the Mystical Fae Forest.  It’s such a gorgeous sim!  Ripley made fast friends with two cute little lambs, and they are off frolicking in the long grass.  It’s just about time for us to head home for dinner.  I hope I can convince the pupster that his new pals will be right here waiting for us to return soon.  He’s having a blast, and I know he’s not going to want to leave.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hello Friend

Hello Friend

Hello Fabulouses!  As the weekend draws to a close, I just had to pop in quickly to share an adorable dress that I picked up as a free group gift.  Since this is a January gift, and the month is drawing to a close, I’m not sure how much longer it will be available.  So, if you like this off the shoulder style mini as much as I do, I’d recommend a trip over to the shop in the next few days.

It’s a Dress……It’s a Top

When I saw the Susie Dress as one of the free group gifts being offered to members of the Jumo Fashion Group, I fell in love with it immediately!  Featuring a lively botanical print (only available in this group gift) splashed across a while background, puffy sleeves and a generous ruffled hem, Susie reminds me of warm summer days.  It certainly allowed my shoulders to soak up some desert sun rays as Ripley and I made a new friend over at the Villa Baldeney sim.  Although it is termed a dress, it is very short, so I opted to wear it as a top instead.  If you were to wear it as a dress, you would have to make strategic use of an alpha layer to preserve modesty.  The frock is rigged mesh and is designed solely for mesh bodies.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you do have to be a member of the group, and the join fee, at 350 Linden dollars, is a bit steep, but there are currently four additional group gifts set out including earrings, a skin for Catwa and Omega, lipstick for Catwa and Omega, and a cute little purse.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Well, the sun is setting on this arid landscape.  Deserts can get quite cold at night, so Ripley and I had better head on back home.  Here’s wishing you a wonderful Monday tomorrow.  Until next time, happy shopping!

By the Light of the Moon

By the Light of the Moon

Hello Fabulouses!  Under the light of a full moon, Ripley and I are pausing for a moment to catch our breath before diving right back into the hunt for more Fabulous Finds to share with our favorite readers!  Speaking of “hunting,” the cute little frock I’m wearing in the photo is a hunt prize that I scooped up for just five Linden dollars as part of the Skull N Bones Black Widow Hunt.

Beware the Spider’s Kiss

With a flirty and fun asymmetrical hemline, halter style neckline, and spider web print, that Tattered Widow dress will have you set for the season.  There’s even a spooky arachnid medallion at the top of the bodice.  Although the texture looks shiny in my photo, that’s from a face light I was wearing.  Normally, the fabric was matte on my screen.  To play up the holiday vibe, I added a witch hat and slinky black boots, but I’m sure you could create a more subtle look with different hair and shoes.  Since the hunt box contains versions for classic and mesh bodies, as well as Dinkies, I’m sure you’ll find just the right fit for your avatar.  To add this delightfully spooky frock to your wardrobe, simply teleport over to the Little 2 Large Shop and locate the potion bottle labeled “Spider’s Kiss.”  There’s a trail of black widow spiders along the ground to point you in the right direction, and a handy hint giver if you get stumped.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Standard Small and Large (includes prim skirt, system top, pants, and alpha layer)
  • eBody
  • Dinkies
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Omega applier

While we still have plenty of moonlight left, we’d better be on our way.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

Nevermore

Hello Fabulouses!  Since Ripley and I found some fantastic hunt prizes lately, we decided to hit the trail once again.  This time, we set out along the Quoth the Raven Hunt path.  Over at Little 2 Large, we discovered this fabulous gown, and it only cost 1 little Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  On the wall of the shop, you’ll find a hunt poster, which contains a helpful hint in case you get stuck.

With Many a Flirt and Flutter, In There Stepped a Stately Raven

The stately raven over at Little 2 Large actually brought *more* than just the gown in my picture.  In addition to a splendid frock, you’ll also receive male and female Dinkies outfits (Dinkies are these absolutely adorable mesh kitty avatars that you may have seen around the grid), a coordinating Nevermore men’s suit, and a petite Nevermore mini dress.  The additional prizes are no transfer, but if your man happens to come along with you on the hunt, for just 1 more Linden dollar, you can look all matchy-matchy.  As you can see from my picture, the gown starts out black at the bodice, but transitions into a soft gray texture, which reminded me of watercolors.  I really love the intricate black lace that adorns the sexy, full length slits in the skirt as well as the generous hemline.  The “sleeves” on the bodice resemble black feathers, and the package also included shoulder feathers that I opted not to wear.  For just a dollar, this fabulous hunt prize will have you all set up for formal fall parties, whether you have a classic or a mesh body avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Ripley has taken to growling at that beguiling Raven, for that bird (to quote from Poe himself):

“…never flitting, still is sitting, STILL is sitting…

just above my chamber door…”

I’d better see if I can help the pupster escape unharmed from “The Raven.”  Until next time, happy hunting!

We’re Spending Fall Break at the Beach

Day One of Fall Break

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m popping in tonight with a quick post which is rather time sensitive.  The adorable micro skirt and tied top I’m wearing in my photo are only up for grabs for a special price until tomorrow.  Anny’s Fashion is offering this cute set as their Syndicate Sunday offering for this week, but if you like it, you’ll have to quickly scamper over to the shop because the event only continues through October 9th.

I Know Fall’s Here, But…. Beaches in SL….

I’m as much into the Halloween season as the rest of the Fab bloggers, but Ripley has been pestering me to take him to the beach so he can indulge in playing hide and seek with seagulls, and a girl has to have a sweet skimpy outfit for the sand and surf, am I right?  The best part of SL is being able to visit a chilly autumn sim one moment, and then -poof- teleporting to a summer oasis the next.  For just 60 Linden dollars, Anny’s Fashion had me all set for a lazy day soaking up the sun in my new Loren outfit.   It features a sassy micro skirt (you’ll need panties under this one for sure) and a knotted cropped top.  The generous designer tucked a texture change HUD packed with 20 options for the skirt and 25 for the top inside the box, so you will be able to create quite a variety of looks with just this one purchase.  With both classic and mesh body versions, I’m sure you’ll find the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, SS, S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Well, there’s a pelican here giving me the stink eye, so I think maybe Rip overstepped his boundaries.  The gulls are up for a game, but pelicans can be a bit grumpy.  I’d better collect the rascal and head on home.  Until next time, happy shopping!
