Hey You With the Red Dress On

Red Dress

Well, hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are still checking out the trail of The Red Hunt.  As you can see, we found another gorgeous crimson item over at AlaFolie that I’m excited to share with you.  I couldn’t help humming this song as I tried my new dress on.  It just seemed to fit the occasion.

She Wants to Make a Night to Remember

Featuring a bright, cheerful cherry colored fabric with a sprinkling of flowers and petals, this fun little dress is sure to draw eyes your way.  The green centers of the blossoms really pop against the red background.  I love the asymmetrical hemline, which is longer in the back and a flirty length in front.  Thankfully, the designer tucked a pair of coordinating panties in the box, which come in handy because of the shorter length.  The skirt is fairly full as it falls gently from the high empire waistline.  Short sleeves and a scooped neckline complete the look.  To add this frock to your inventory, all you need to do is locate the diabetes awareness ribbon concealed somewhere in the shop, then pay 10 Linden dollars.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Original
  • Slink Original Petite
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

We’re off to finish our afternoon walk before we lose the sunshine.  I love the cooler temperatures of fall, but the shorter days are a bummer, don’t you think?  Until next time, happy hunting!

Hello November!

Hello November

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a fantastic Halloween.  We had quite a few trick or treaters last night.  It seemed like I would just sit down to type up this blog post, and then DING DONG went the door bell again!  There were a number of “first timers” that were just super adorable.  I think we had one repeat visitor, or maybe it was just a popular costume….since it had a full mask, I guess we’ll never know.  The best part (for me anyway) is we still have some candy leftover.  Yay!  Sorry boy, dogs can’t have chocolate.

Yes, It’s Free!

Speaking of sweet treats, Alias! is gifting the Dot Orange outfit to members of Fabulously Free in SL completely for free.  It features a tube top style shirt with a playful polka dot print in orange, white and black, as well as curve-hugging black jeans with a flared bottom hem.  Packed with details such as gleaming silver buttons, vertical panels in the pants and a ruffled bottom on the top, this duo aims to please.  Although you can’t see them well in my picture because of the bell bottoms, the package also includes chunky heels with a coordinating polka dot pattern.  Since each of the components are worn separately, you can mix and match them with other items in your wardrobe for added versatility.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Shoes for Belleza, Ebody, Maitreya, and Slink

After hearing that he can’t have any of the candy, the pupster is now pouting in the corner.  I’m off to whip up a batch of Ripley Snacks to help him feel a bit better.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hello Friday, I’m Ready!

Gray Day

Hello Fabulouses.  We made it!  We’re finally on the downhill slide to Friday!  I don’t know about you, but for me, this week has dragged on in RL.  When Ripley and I were over at the Fatal Fashion store picking up the outfit I blogged in my post here, I saw the perfect little mini dress to ring in the weekend.  And, just like the last gift, this one is completely free and contains an entire look, including heels and a necklace!

Free Flirty Frock

The Cecelia dress features a subtle color variation from a lighter gray at the bodice to a darker tone at the skirt.  Deep black edging and horizontal bands accent the overall design.  I love the way the fabric “poufs” out and is gathered in.  It creates such a pleasing effect.  If you zoom your camera in close, you can even see lighter gray accent stitching – such fine detail!  It’s kind of hard to see in my photo, but the bodice is completely strapless.  The intricate Goddess Necklace I’m sporting is also included in the gift package as well as the high heel Lysa Shoes.  Right out of the box, you have everything you need for a night out on the town….all for free.  To pick up Outfit 047 for yourself, you need to be a member of the My Fair Gifts group, but it’s free to join.  Just teleport over to the shop, switch to the group tag, and tap the vendor.  You’ll be ready for date night in a flash!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink

Well, that’s it for tonight – short and sweet – but I wanted to tell you all about this opportunity before Friday arrives.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

We’re Members Just for Today

When in Doubt, Wear Red

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a fantastic Saturday.  In RL, Ripley and I spent some time at a home show today, dreaming about renovations and all the things we can’t afford to do to our house.  So, when we got home, we popped onto SL and found a bunch of free gifts over at The Seasons Story.  I’m so glad there are such generous designers in SL!

Go Red!

Although I enjoy chatting and being around other people, I do have to admit there are those days when I just want to quietly take a walk with my pal and shut out the rest of the world.  The free sweatshirt that I picked up at the Moonstone display at The Season’s Story makes this abundantly clear with its printed message about the Anti Social Club.  This over sized hoodie is perfect for a brisk fall day spent exploring nature.  I really like the casual style and the bright crimson color.  The only quirky thing was the top forces you to have one hand in your pocket, which meant I needed to alpha out one of my hands.  On my Maitreya body, I could only alpha out both hands, so I dusted off the Slink hands I had in my inventory, and popped on the right one.  Problem solved!  Since the text on the top and the stripes on the sleeve are white, I decided to pair my new sweatshirt with white pants, but I think it would look great with denim as well.  The free gift package contains only one version – Maitreya – so if you have a different mesh body, this may not work for you.  However, since the gift is completely free, it may be worth a shot to pick it up and try – you might get lucky!  You have to be a member of The Seasons Story Event group to receive the gift, but there is no join fee, so I’d say give it a go!

I’m off to try on some of the other Fabulous Finds I scooped up at The Season’s Story.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

The Art of Avoiding RL Grocery Shopping

Flowers and Lace

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post while I put off RL grocery shopping to share a couple of budget friendly finds I picked up over at The Cart Sale at The Wash.  I think the pretty floral mini shorts and the warm weather lacy top really work well together.  The best part?  I only spent a grand total of 20L to put together this fun, casual look.  If only my RL grocery bill was that small!  With two kids, three cats, and two hungry German Shepherds, that is just a fantasy though…

Sweet Yet Sassy

To create my Sunday afternoon look, I visited two of the vendor displays at The Wash.  First, at the Kuid Clothing cart, the Wings Shorts caught my attention with their pink and green floral pattern scattered across a frayed white denim fabric.  With four pockets for stashing the every day essentials, a buttoned closure, and an eye-catching pointed hemline in the back, these mini shorts hugged my curves beautifully.  This design fits many of the popular mesh body styles, and is priced at just 10 Linden dollars.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

To Top It All Off

The feminine print on my shorts called for a frilly, girly top, and I found just what I was looking for at the Baci Shop display.  The 10 Linden Badalado Top features an off-the-shoulder, cropped design, generous ruffles and a pretty swirled lace texture.  I opted to go with the white version, but with the 80 color HUD that is tucked inside the package, I can change hues to my heart’s content.  I really like the soft, romantic look created by the layered lace, and could see pairing this shirt with skirts or longer pants as well as the Wings Shorts.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  •  Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Ripley and I discovered quite a few bargains at The Wash, and will return soon with another post.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Limelight

Limelight

Greetings, fabulouses!

I’m just heading out for a night on the town, but I wanted to stop by the blog to show you this pretty new gift from Eloise Baker for members of the Fab Free in-world group.

The Rose & Lace Dress is delicate and feminine, and it comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. The dress has a definite vintage flair, but you can also give it a more modern twist, as I’ve done.

Oh, and it comes in several other colors, but the lovely lime version I’m wearing here is FREE. 🙂

Be sure to check out the Fab Free Group Gift Listing page for more amazing gifts from our fabulously generous designers!

Enjoy!

❤ Serena

Wishing Upon the Stars

Wishing Upon the Stars

Hey FabFree!

Happy Tuesday! I woke up in a mood today and decided what the heck, I am going to get all dressed up and be pretty for ME! I found this super snug stretchy pencil dress from CoCo Designs! The berry-red color of this dress is absolutely stunning, pair it with some bright red lips and maybe some red pumps, you’ll be turning head for sure. It’s a simple dress, which I happen to love, because that just opens the box for creativity and uniqueness. The CoCo Designs in-world group, is free to join and there is an entire wall full of free gifts!

Coco Designs- Stretch Tube Dress Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink & Hourglass
  • Belleza- Freya & Isis

I just couldn’t find a pretty enough spot to show off the dress, so I wandered around from Sim to Sim, until I stumbled onto Why Not? The minute I saw this Gazebo, I knew it was just what I was looking for. However, my excitement didn’t stop here, because it is their group gift this month! The Why Not? in-world group is also free to join, you have to pay the vendor $1L, but is is given right back to you. This Gazebo is absolutely beautiful!

Don’t forget to sport those group tags, to receive those gifts!!
