Break Out the Sweaters

Break Out the Sweaters

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I shared a pretty floral dress that I picked up as a hunt prize over at The Free Dove.  While I was searching high and low for the hunt object, this cute sweater caught my eye.  I don’t know about where you are in the world, but the days around me are getting a bit on the chilly side, so I was happy to add a cozy item to my wardrobe (even if it is just in SL).

It’s Getting to Be Sweater Weather

I’ve been avoiding it as long as I could, but it is definitely time to start dressing for the season.  Baby Monkey has you covered if you are looking to expand your fall collection, and best of all, their gift is completely free for members of The Free Dove group (which is free to join).  The Striped Sweater will keep you toasty warm with its mock turtleneck, long sleeves, and generous length.  I love how it is not too bulky and still shows off your curves.  If blue is not your cup of tea, you can change the look with 7 other knitted textures using the included HUD.  Although I chose not to wear them for my picture, the folder also includes striped leggings, a suede mini, and Guilia boots, so you will have a complete outfit (including footwear) – all for a grand total of zero lindens!

Bittersweet

Bittersweet farewell

Hello, Fab Free!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  After some retail therapy, I spent the afternoon at the beach today, enjoying the last burst of summer.  The beginning of September is always bittersweet to me.  I look forward to the crisp days of fall, but I’m never really ready for the change of seasons.  Pretty soon, it will be time to pack crop tops and shorts away and pull out cozy sweaters and long pants.  For today though, I am rocking my latest hunt find and a cute pair of shorts.

Loving that Dragon!

This adorable crop top from Grumble features bright pops of color splashed over a black background and slender shoulder straps that allow my skin to soak up the sun.  I really love the jewel tones in the pattern, which draws inspiration from the theme of the Love the Dragon Hunt 2.  Both Jacx and I have already shared hunt items here and here, but with 42 stops along the way, there are plenty of other budget-friendly goodies hidden on the trail.  Each hunt prize has a 3L price tag, but the sponsor fees are for the IKSDP Harambee project Gwassi Kenya schools.  It feels good to scoop up some new items for my wardrobe and support a worthy cause at the same time.  The event runs through September 30th.

Dreamy Damsel

Dreamy Damsel

Happy Weekend, Fabulous Readers!  In my part of the world in RL, this is a three-day weekend, and boy, did I need an extra day off.  Of course, I had to spend part of the holiday weekend hunting for SL bargains. Inspired by Jacx’s post here, I decided to set off down the trail of the Love the Dragon Hunt 2.  Now, this is not a free hunt, but the dress I came away with was well worth the tiny asking price.

Fit for a Fairytale

It took me a while, but after I finally discovered the hunt object at Telsiope’s Couture (an adorable dragon plushie), I paid the 3L fee, then eagerly teleported home to pop open the Agatha Dress.  Wow, oh wow, do I love this stunning gown!  The sleeveless frock features a plunging neckline, flowing cape/train, and a full, floor-length skirt.  The designer even included a color change HUD so you can customize your look.  While I opted for an all-white design, you have six hues to choose from and can apply them separately to the cape, top, skirt, and belt to create a variety of combinations.  The only caveat is this dress is made specifically for the Maitreya mesh body.  With a bit of searching time and just a few Linden dollars, you can come away with a lovely outfit perfect for a formal event or heck, even a stroll through nature – this is SL after all. 🙂  The hunt runs through September 30th.

Hiya Fabulouses!  It’s true, I’ve been on a few ski trips in my life, but not one of them actually required skis!  I am more of a “Enjoy the lodge” kind of a girl, all snuggled up nice and warm.

Perhaps in something like the Dead Dollz Apres Ski Gacha Set at Epiphany!

The Apre Ski Gacha Set by Dead Dollz at Epiphany allows you to collect the RARE onesie, cardigan and socks, all in beautiful wintery colours for just 75L a play.  I adore the little pom poms on the socks, and I think the cardigan will be great with other outfits too!  There are no duds in this sweet set – good luck!

Hello there Fabulouses!  In this blog post, I am going to be showing you a couple of really nice group gifts.  They do have fees associated with them, but both inworld groups are well worth the fees if you ask me 😉

Christmas Gifts for Safira VIPs!

At the Safira store on the main floor, you’ll find a beautiful Christmas tree rezzed.  Under that tree, you’ll find group gifts that are randomly being added!  I picked up one, and it’s a beautiful winter sweater called Tayla Top that comes in both pale pink and baby blue.  This group has a 50L group fee, however you’ll be collecting group gifts under that tree as well as all the group gifts upstairs and you gain access to the lucky board prizes too.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

Bravo, bravooo N-Core!

Gianna is the latest group gift at N-Core with your 250L group tag activation.  Aren’t these cute?  You can wear the shoes or the socks alone or all together, and it comes with a HUD that allows for tons of different colours.

It’s hard to see the detailing on this beautiful caged ring by Luminesse, so I have included a vendor ad below for you to peek at.  The Mihaly Ring in Lenora Gold is just 10L on display at The Crisp N Cool Event.
