Flirty and Free

Free as a Dove

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Every once in a while, when I’m out walking Ripley, he puts his nose to the ground, and pulls me with single-minded determination.   Usually when this happens, my hound with a nose for fashion is leading me toward a fabulous discovery.  I’ve learned to just follow his instincts, and I haven’t been disappointed yet.

Free as a Dove

Today my pal dragged guided me to The Free Dove, and stood outside, his tail wagging happily.   As a new resident to second life (back in the virtual dinosaur age), I used to visit the shop all the time, but I haven’t journeyed there for quite some time.  I’m so glad the pupster steered me in that direction because I was able to scoop up this free, summery, mini dress from M&M Style.  With a cheerful dark blue and white print, and slender shoulder straps, this frock is perfect for a casual summer day.  It has a body-skimming fit that will flatter your figure, and ends with a slightly flared skirt. Although it’s not designed specifically for a mesh body, this dress comes in five sizes and one of them perfectly fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  An alpha layer is also tucked inside the package for those with classic avatars.

Thanks for the Reminder, Ripley!

There are many quality, free items at The Free Dove.  It’s well worth a visit.  I know I plan to return often to search for new Fabulous Finds to share with you all.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Catch of the Day

Catch of the Day
Hello Fabulouses!  I hauled in a great one today!  No, it’s not the fish (but he’s a beauty, don’t you think?)  My Fabulous Find is the best catch of all!  This adorable short set is a free group gift for members of the B&T Designs group at Bijou Couture.  My barely-there, bardot style, crop top coordinates perfectly with the patterned belt and back pockets of the Naomi shorts.  I just love the sweet rose pattern and the soft ruffles in the top and sleeves.  I’m sure to soak up plenty of the sun’s rays with my shoulders and tummy bare.  This outfit is ideal for a lazy warm spring or summer day.  You have to be a group member to reel in this charming short set, but the group is completely free to join.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus

Catch and Release

Well, I’d better pop this guy back in the water, and whistle for Ripley, who is off hunting for the perfect stick.  It’s time for us to mosey on home for the day.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

FINALLY…. the weekend….

It is been a long hard week for the both of us, either finishing jobs or beginning new ones. One thing we could most definitely agree on was that we needed a getaway to let the events of the week drain away and just relax. So, off to the beach we go. As I’m sitting here looking out over the ocean and enjoying the cool breeze in my face,  she hands me one of her magazines and tells me to answer the questions on a compatibility test…. I thought this was supposed to be a stress-free weekend…. /me sighs…

It’s A Wrap

You can find her wrapped Puerto Rico Bikini as a FREE Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Faboo! It comes in several mesh body specific sizes as listed below.  The Fabulously Free in SL inworld group is FREE to join, and once you do – you can pick up a whole list of group gifts [FOUND HERE].

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Tonic

My *AHEM* banana hammock is also a gift at Faboo. The Kanji Thong is one of the many group gifts available to Faboo members.  The Faboo group is FREE to join, but the gifts are pay 1L, get 1L refunded. I’m also wearing tats (GASP) today. The Black Star Tattoo is a 5L gift from the Red Girl booth at the Spotlight Event. The Tattoo comes in both Omega and Slink appliers for both upper and lower tattoos. I also stopped by REBELLION  and after joining the group, was able to pick up the Aviator Sunglasses, one of many group gifts available to members. The Rebellion group is also FREE to join.

Getting Beachy…

Our pose today is the latest group gift from Come Soon PosesBeach Weekend is just what the doctor ordered to unwind and relax. The couple’s pose comes with a chair and a chaise lounger, an umbrella, a beer beverage cooler, and a cute little pup to keep you entertained.  Also included is a wearable magazine, if you’re into taking silly quizzes… And what is the price, you are probably wondering? Why, everything you see is FREE. It’s quite a nice setup for just being a FREE gift.

Down in Mexico

DownInMexico
It’s been quite a while since I have been down to Mexico, but I do remember the sun was hot, the tequila was amazing, and the siestas were long and plentiful…  Ahhh…  I really must go back again soon.  What made me think back to my visit to Mexico was the latest group gift at Mishchino!

I’m in Stitches

You can find this sweet ethnic embroidered tank top as a free group gift for ladies at Mishchino with a 1L fee to join the group!  You can’t see the back of this top in my photo because I really wanted to feature the front stitching, but it has a cute red bow holding the straps together racer-back style – making the back as awesome as the front!

Sizes included:

  • XXS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Hybrid Mesh XXS – L
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique
  • Belleza Isis, Venus & Freya
  • TMP

Captivating Karin

She Has Fire in Her Soul and Grace in Her Heart

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your weekend is going well.  Ripley and I found a fantastic beach to spend our Saturday on.  With gulls calling over head, the crash of waves on the shore, and the nickers of wild horses grazing in the meadow nearby, it was a tranquil setting.

As the tide rolled in, and the sun sank low on the horizon, I snapped this photo to showcase the free Karin Love Camisk, which is one of the many free gifts generous designers are bestowing on the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The talented creator at PA Designe put together this sexy, barely there garment, which I’m sure would come in handy for Gorean role play, in addition to a day at the shore.  In a soft shade of mauve, this two piece outfit is sure to flatter any skin tone.  Its bandeau-style top, frayed edges, and daring cut will draw all eyes to your figure.  Ripley insisted I apply the alpha layer of my mesh body strategically so he didn’t have to be on active guard dog duty all day on the beach, and his suggestion worked like a charm.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Standard Large and Small Avatar

It’s time for this surf-lovin’ girl and her bodyguard pup to bundle up in some beach towels, and head on home for the night.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Heart of Gold

In Her Eyes

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!  Ripley and I decided to visit one of our favorite beaches in SL – NorderNey – to snap a couple of pictures of some free Fabulous Finds we uncovered this week.

She Has a Flair for Style

My mini skirt today is a free gift for the FitMesh fanatics group at Furtacor.  I love how it fits my waist snugly, but ends in a flared, pleated hem.  This gift includes a HUD with five textures to select from, which offers a range of possible themes, but I must say the tropical pattern in my snapshot was my favorite.  This playful little number was perfect for a balmy day at the beach!  To add the Flower and Fruits skirt to your inventory, simply swap over to your FitMesh Fanatics tag, scoot on over to the Furtacor shop, and click the gift board.  If you’re not already a member, you can join the FitMesh Fanatics group for free, which will give you access to a variety of gifts across the grid. 

Sizes and Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, X, M, L, XL
  • Mesh for Classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

In Her Eyes 2

It’s That Heart of Gold That Makes You Beautiful

My romantic piece of jewelry today is another free group offering.  Hudson’s Clothing Company, one of my most visited merchants in SL, is generously giving this lovely necklace to members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The resizable My Hearts Chain Necklace features two gold-toned hearts with intricately filigreed metal, and two pearl accent beads, all of which dangle from a golden chain set with smaller pearl beads.  The timeless styling of this bauble will complement both vintage and modern outfits.  Best of all, the Fab Free group is completely free to join (just copy and paste the following into chat in SL, and click the link to add yourself to the group:  secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about ).  There are so many generous gifts for group members!  If you haven’t already done so, check out our group gift listing {HERE}.

I hope you’ve found something in today’s outfit to inspire you to create a Fabulous Find of your own.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

As Sweet as Candi

sunset_008 cropped with name stampHappy Middle-of-the-Week, Fabulouses!  This weekend, when Ripley and I were finishing up our holiday jaunt to Maison de L’amitie, a notice popped across my screen that I almost missed.  Lucky for me, my hound with a nose for fashion brought it to my attention.  I’m sure glad he did!  It featured this adorable mini dress from B SASSY.  With its feminine, floral print, side slit, and thin straps, this sexy little number will help you show off all your curves.  I really like the mesh trim that lines the dip of the bodice.  Best of all, Candi is completely free for members of the B SASSY group, which you can join for free.  As you enter the store, glance to your right, and the group gift giver is located on the floor next to the Candi Dress display.

Back to the Beach!

Sunshine in My Pocket

Hello again, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I had so much fun on Monday, we decided to return to the shore for some more R&R.  I packed a bag with sunscreen, a towel, a magazine and, of course, Ripley snacks, then we headed off to one of our favorite sims – NorderNey.

Flirty and Free

I slipped on the latest free Fabulously Free in SL group gift from BlackRose before leaving home.  Bold and bright, with a white, black and dark teal color scheme, this strappy mini dress was perfect for a day of fun in the sun.  Its figure-hugging form will flatter any avatar, for sure.  I liked how the vertical stripes of dark teal at the bodice provided a touch of contrast to the otherwise horizontal bands of color, and directed the eye upward.  With plenty of versions for mesh bodies, plus mesh sizes for classic avatars, you’re sure to find just the right fit for you.

What’s Included:

  •  Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L and alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

The Beach is Calling Me and I Must Go

Here’s hoping you can carve out a little time for some rest and relaxation for yourself this week.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
