The Art of Avoiding the Mall

Crisp Air and a Cozy Sweater

Well hello there, Fabulouses!  I know it’s prime shopping season, and I really should be starting to gradually cross off items on my family members’ wish lists, but I decided to avoid the crowds at the mall the woods were calling us…. so Ripley and I headed for the grove of birch trees at the edge of the forest.  (True confession time…….this time of year where I am in RL, the snowbirds flock to the stores and I dread, dread, dread trying to park and deal with crowds of shoppers).

All Toasty Warm

Although the air was brisk, I was all cozily bundled up in my white woolen sweater, which is part of the latest free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from Ashmoot Fashion & Beauty.  Over-sized for a comfy fit, the thick yarn shielded me from the early winter wind.  This pullover features a ribbed waistline and soft, realistic folds in the texture.  Also part of the gift set, my rich burgandy mini skirt contrasts beautifully with the creamy hue of my top.  I love the touches of gold in the pattern sprinkled across the background.  Best of all, since the Fab Free group is completely free to join, I picked up this adorable outfit and still kept my holiday shopping budget fully intact!

What’s Included:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Classic (one size available but it includes the alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

I Know, I Know…

It’s just going to get more and more crowded out there the longer I wait to hit the stores.  I think I should follow Love’s example and do all my shopping online.  I do need to pick up the ingredients for Ripley Snacks in time to bake for the big holiday.  I plan to make a double batch so we can leave some out for Santa’s reindeer, too.  We’d better hop in the truck and get a move on!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Kat is wearing…

Mesh Body:  Maitreya Lara

Mesh Head:  Catwa Kathy (Bento)

Head Applier:  Glam Affair Tessa

Hair:  Truth Hair Elspeth (includes scarf)

Eyeliner:  SimplyScha Arabic Eyeliner

Eyes:  IKON Triumph Eyes in Coffee

Lipstick Applier:  Izzie’s Catwa Lipstick Applier (Aiko)

Outfit:  Ashmoot Fashion & Beauty A/W Coll Large Sweater and Skirt (free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL – 0L/0L to join)

Waiting for Sailors

Waiting for News_001

The ships will all be coming in this week and I’m waiting for a special sailor to make it back from their tour. Thanks to things like mobile towers and face-time I don’t have to miss my sailor friends completely, but seeing them in person is a different thing entirely! But once upon a time, reunions with loved ones who were out at sea for months at at time with little communication were a different thing indeed! These special vintage gifts from The Vintage Hunt, and a trip to the 1920’s New York sim reminded me of that!

Standard Vintage Fair

Be sure to stop by Loordes of London right now and get in on some of the amazing hunts that this shop is participating in. You won’t regret it. I picked up this 1L dress called the Victorian Standard as part of The Vintage Hunt. Just hunt down the little yellow umbrella and this gorgeous mesh dress is yours. It comes in classic mesh sizes XXS – L and includes an alpha if you need it. It’s all one piece, but is highly detailed with excellent texturing. I paired it with black boots for a classic feel.

Is the news in yet?

I picked up another great Vintage Hunt gift from Ashmoot. For just 1L you get two gifts at Ashmoot… these vintage sunglasses (they are resizable) and the vintage radio you see in my hand (I’m anxiously awaiting news of the returning sailors!). The radio gift includes two radios. You’ll get a no-prose prop radio that you can hold using a pose of  your own OR even rezz out in your home because its only 1 prim! PLUS you’ll get a radio that has a pose that will work with your animation override. I used the no-pose radio and added it to my own pose in the picture above.

Happy Hunting! And here is to all those with friends, family, and loved ones who are sailors!

Queen Bee

Queen Bee_002

I’ve been out gathering the last blooms before fall really sets in. We’ve had a few warm days and some of the flowers still are blooming. The cold nights will soon be frosting over the last of the buds though.

Late Bloomer

This ruffled romper is perfect for picking late blooms with its pretty lacy textured design and soft color. And you can pick it up free at Ashmoot. It’s their exclusive FabFree gift to all of us! Just don your FabFree group tag and head over to the Ashmoot main-store to pick it up.

Available sizes:

  • Standard sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Pose pretty!

My pretty pose is another 12L gift from the TWE12VE event! You can find this gift at the B’Style booth and the pose is called “Angel”. It is great for Second Life photographers! And for only 12L, I couldn’t pass it up!

Queen Bee_001

Queen Bee

Since I’m picking all these flowers, I have decided that I’m queen bee for the day, as stated by my most excellent tattoo. This was another TWE12VE event gift. I picked this gift up for 12L at the Lush booth. Inside the box was the cute omega applier tattoo pictured above!

A special gift

NSP Florals and [MUSE] sent out their September gift via group notices with a special announcement that their main-store would be temporarily closed due to an SL glitch (it will reopen as soon as possible). In the meantime you can get the current group gift in the notices (but hurry, notices only stay active for two weeks and it’s already been a few days). That’s where I got my beautiful set of 50s swing jewelry that I paired with my outfit.

Note* If you’re not already in the group, copy and paste this: secondlife:///app/group/fc7863f9-aea1-e3d3-9705-b37dd4bcd531/about into local chat and use it to join the group!

Don’t worry, the NSP Florals satellite store is still open and you can go to it to do your regular shopping for now using this teleport by clicking here. And the main-store will be back up soon! In the meantime, pick up the group gift from the notices!

The New Color of Sexy

Shine

I’m still relaxing in my comfy chair. I’ve spent the morning sorting through old journals of my grandfather’s from World War II. He’s been gone for several years now, but I miss him and it’s been nice to travel down memory lane and learn a little more about his life. I haven’t changed out of my pajamas yet either… this great set of wine colored lingerie.

The new color of sexy…

Ashmoot has been putting out beautiful gifts each month, including this Long Shirt that is still out that Love blogged here. This month was no exception and you can pick up this gorgeous applier lingerie in burgundy as a free group gift (the group is free to join). It comes in appliers for System bodies, Omega, Maitreya, and Slink. I really fell in love with the lacy neckline and lace bodysuit of the one piece.

The Hair Fair is here!

The Hair Fair started yesterday! And we all know that not only does that mean money is raised for a great cause, but that creators are generous with lots of amazing and wonderful gifts for visitors. You can visit the Hair Fair website for more information here.

I picked up my luscious locks by enVogue by stopping at one of the cam shopping locations on the outskirts of the Hair Fair. These have been set up to allow you to cam shop. There is less lag and you can just cam in and look in the booths to pick out the items that you want.

((Quick hint: to get maximum shopping benefit, if you are in firestorm viewer, go to preferences, firestorm tab [along the left side] then Build 2 [along the top tabs] and uncheck “limit select distance” and then click ok. This will allow you to select items from any distance as long as you can see it with your draw distance!))

I cammed away while I was in the corner of the Foils Cam Sim and happened to see the enVogue booth and picked up the gift there for just 1L. When I opened it, I was thrilled with the gift inside. This style, called Beyonce, includes a hud for a fatpack of colors and has a beautiful flow and realistic texture. It was well worth my camming and crowd fighting time!
