Meet Me at Dusk

Enjoy Every Purple Moment

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I don’t know about you, but I can’t resist the color purple.  Today’s post features a gorgeous formal gown that I picked up for free as a hunt prize in the Twisted Hunt Fall 2021 (Beyond the Veil).  This is a time-sensitive post because the event draws to a close on September 30th, but this beauty is well worth a journey down the hunt trail.

Fit for a Royal

With its slightly puffed upper sleeves, intricate print on the bodice, and “v” shaped waistline, the free Clyra gown flatters your curves.  I love how the full-length skirt drapes gracefully to the ground and is loose enough to make it easy to move without being cumbersome.  I felt so elegant as I wore it, and found myself searching for a castle to visit.  Although it’s not designed specifically for a mesh avatar, I was able to get the perfect fit by adjusting the alpha of my Maitryea mesh body.  If you are still rocking a classic avatar, the included alpha layers will allow you to opt for wearing the dress with and without your feet showing.  As I stated earlier, the hunt runs only until the end of September, so if you like this frock as much as I do, head on over soon to DSO (Designs by Starla) to do some sleuthing of your own.  You’ll be searching for a small dusk-colored cube.

Sizes:

  • Alpha layers with and without feet
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L

Until my next post, happy hunting!

All my todays

All my todays

Welcome to the week, Fab Readers! Isn’t it wild how time seems to be getting faster and faster as we head towards the holidays and the end of the year? It’s full on Fall now! And in honor of that, Gabe and I went for a nice stroll out in town to breathe it all in! The crisp air, the falling leaves… The cup full of hot chocolate… oh yes!  I even found us the perfect casual outfits to enjoy our walk. Both of our full outfits come from Tastic and they each only cost one little Linden.

My top and cozy sweater are the “Willow” set. You get the jeans and the top inside a little mushroom prize box. It’ll take a few minutes of hunting but you’ll find it. I am in love with the rich Autumn colors in both the top and the jeans.

Gabe’s full outfit is called “Hunter” appropriately enough. You lucky guys get the whole outfit – Hoodie, jeans and sneakers! Each piece is really well built. I especially like the sneakers! The look is so realistic.  Just be sure to wear a shirt under it… so you can hand it off to your girl when she gets cold. 😉

The Harmony Hunt only runs until Sept. 30th so get out there and get your Hunt on!

Fall Blue

Fall Blues

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. We are getting to the time of year when warm is becoming as important as stylish. The days grow cooler and I fore see sweaters and fleece in my future. Happily, Mystrie has that in mind for todays outfit.

This is the “Autumn Walks” outfit and you can pick it up for just 1L and a little hunting at the main store. The hunt prize for the Changing of Colors Hunt comes with the blue fleece look top, a pair of pants with a fall print and the ‘blue suede shoes’. I chose to throw on a pair of well-worn jeans for my walk today proving that the outfit is rather versatile. As I often have to chase after Dixie when she takes off after a squirrel, I thought jeans were appropriate.

The Changing of Colors Hunt runs until Sept. 30th so don’t tarry too long.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Fitmesh
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni
  • SLink Male

In the Twisted Shadows

In the Twisted Shadows

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. You may have heard Juli is feeling a bit under the weather so I have ever so graciously stepped in to post for us both today. because how could I not when we both look so “Twistedly” good?

Both Juli and I have been fighting our way through the Twisted Hunt this past week. For all the frustration, there are some truly excellent prizes for this round. Such as the full suit I am sporting today. This is the “Shadow Seeker” ensemble from Roped Passions. I had first thought the purple was too lavender but it is a good classic purple and the subtle pinstriping in the black fabric makes it just that more handsome. The suit is one piece but it does not include shoes.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Fitmesh Classic
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink Male

Julianna’s sleek gown is also from Roped Passions and is the ladies gift for the Twisted Hunt. (Each prize is separately boxed.) The “Shadow Seductress” gown is the same classic purple and black and has subtle silver lightning tracks across the bodice and skirt. Both of these outfits are wonderfully crafted and the details stand out. Roped Passions has an excellent selection of men’s and women’s items so be sure to take a look around while you Hunt.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

The Twisted Hunt runs until Sept 30th so time is catching up with us.

Don’t delay to cross “Beyond The Veil” soon.

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!

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post,

A Bit of September Birdwatching

Happiness Blooms from Within

Hello Fab Readers!  I hit the hunt trail again this weekend and discovered a cheery dress that I picked up completely for free.  All I had to do was invest a small amount of time doing some “birding” (more on that below) and it was completely worth it.

Packed with Options

This vibrant frock is the first free hunt prize from GGVG in The Free Dove’s September Hunt.  It features an off-the-shoulder fit, layered sleeves, and a slightly flared skirt.  In addition, the generous designer included a texture change HUD with 20 bold selections for the floral print.  Honestly, it was hard to choose my favorite one for the photo!   There are five gifts from GGVG concealed on the Free Dove sim (I found this beauty there) and an additional 5 scattered throughout the GGVG main store location.  In order to collect the items, you need to be a member of The Free Dove group, but it’s completely free to join.  You’ll be searching for a small, reddish-brown, and yellow feathered friend.  The hunt runs through September 30th.

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Classic – M (no alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh – M
  • Belleza Frey, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Voluptuous

Until next time, happy hunting!

Game Day

Game Day

Good afternoon, Fabulous Readers. As you read in Juli’s last post, she sent me over to the TWE12VE Event to pick up the free men’s gifts there. When I found these lounge pants and tee shirt from LooLoo & Platypus I knew they’d be perfect for relaxing around the house with a game. I have to admit… I’m a gamer. There’s little I enjoy more than an afternoon spend in Skyrim or the Fall Out wastelands. And these pajamas even come with a pack of “Gamer’s Clutter”. Then I saw that there was a matching set of ladies PJs and I had a feeling Juli was thinking the same thing I was: Game Day!! Time to show who’s the boss around here. 😉

Juli’s note: Oh, it’s on, Gamer Boi!

Lovely in Lavender

Where Flowers Bloom

Hello again, Fab Free!  With Friday and Saturday just around the corner, I’m popping in quickly to share an alluring dress that is perfect for a weekend date night.  Best of all, with just a small investment of time, plus the budget-friendly prize fee, you’ll have plenty of Linden dollars left for shopping!

It’s Our Turn, Now

Last month the Men Only Hunt took place, but it’s time for the fellas to step aside.  The Woman Hunt kicked off on September 1st, and features clothing, shoes, furniture, and the like just the ladies!  My first stop on the hunt trail was Wiccan Wears, and I have to say I am thrilled with the Felicity Splash dress.  A soft shade of lavender with pink and pale green accents, it features long sleeves for cooler autumn nights, an asymmetrical hem, and a sassy, plunging neckline.  I love the way the bodice drapes ever so slightly to emphasize your figure.  To add this frock to your inventory, simply locate the hunt object (bright red lips) and pay the one linden fee.  The hunt runs through September 30th and has sixteen stops along the way.

Yep, It Was Me

Yep, It Was Me

Hello there, Fab Free! I couldn’t resist spending another day at the beach during this end-of-summer holiday weekend. As you can see, things didn’t quite work out the way I had planned. At least I was able to enjoy my latest hunt prize, even if I didn’t get to have my picnic lunch. Does anyone know of a good SL dog trainer?

I Let the Dogs Out…

…well, at least one naughty dog who stole the hot dogs.  I figured I might as well ‘fess up.  What better way to do it than with my new cropped tank from The Bold Llama T-Shirt Company?  This gray top features the funny text proclaiming my guilt, as well as a figure-flattering fit and realistic wrinkles in the fabric.  It is a hunt exclusive item that I picked up for just 25L.  There’s also a 1L prize in the shop (another tank) that proclaims “I Like to Move It Move It,” but I thought this one was much more in line with the afternoon’s events.  Both items are part of the Bring on the Night Hunt, and can be yours if you locate the stars hidden somewhere in the shop.

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.
