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!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – 08/04/2018 – Baci

Baci Exterior
Sweet merciful everything it’s the weekend! What a week! I’m happy you’re here Fab Free’rs, and clearly happy for the weekend. This week I get to share with you Baci. This sweet shop reminds me of those swanky boudoir boutique style shops. It is a ladies clothing store where you’ll find lots of feminine sexy dresses and lacy underthings. Baci is a small enough shop that it’s quite easy to navigate, but large enough that there’s plenty to look at. There are also quite a few dollarbies and gifts to be had, which of course we love!

Just as you enter Baci, you’ll see a couple of dollarbies to the right, along with two group gifts. These gifts, such as the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift, require a specific group tag. The dollarbies are just 1 linden each, no group needed. I even picked up the dollarbie Omega applier tan lines myself!  Also, you may recall the cute little Fab Free group gift dress by Baci from Nevi’s post “Dreaming of Yesterday.” To the left, there’s another dollarbie (it appears to be a rez day gift) that is also available to everyone.

If you follow the walkway to the right and go all the way, you’ll find the wall of Baci store group gifts. There are several dresses, and some pretty lingerie gifts. The Baci store group is just 1 linden to join at this time. You can get a quick glance at these gifts in the lower right photo above. Finally, there are several Baci group-only Lucky Letter boards directly across from the Baci store group gifts. My apologies, I didn’t get a photo of the Lucky Letter boards. Happy Shopping Fab Free! I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Close Your Eyes

You Can Close Your Eyes

Well the sun is surely sinking down, but the moon is slowly rising,

so this old world must still be spinning ’round, and I sill love you.

So, close your eyes.  You can close your eyes; it’s all right…

Hello again, Fabulous Readers!  My first stop at The Cart Wash Sale was the Baci Shop display, where I found the Last Leaves Dress that I blogged about {HERE}.  Ripley and I planned to start checking out the rest of The Cart Wash, but before we began our journey, I couldn’t resist scooping up another Fabulous Find from the Baci Shop, this gorgeous sweater dress.

Visiting the Baci Shop, Again

With rich tones, long sleeves and a chunky knit, this frock will keep me toasty warm well into autumn.  I love the bright pops of color in the simple flowers, which contrast beautifully against the ombre background of the “Again” dress.   Its snug fit draws attention to my curves in all the right places.  I could see myself sporting this dress in RL as well as SL, if only temperatures were below the 90’s.  (Hang in there, Kat, we’ll get there….).  Priced at only 10L, this budget-friendly, gorgeous sweater dress will snuggle you in warmth and style, while leaving plenty of spare linden dollars for more Cart Wash finds.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

So Many More Discoveries to Make…

With two Fabulous Finds just from one vendor at The Cart Wash, Ripley and I are eager to explore further.  I’m sure we will be back soon!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Bringing a Bit of Summer Into Fall

The Last Leaves
Hello Fabulouses!  When I saw Love’s post {HERE} saying that some displays at The Cart Wash are already set up, Ripley and I teleported on over to check things out.  I always look forward to the sales at the Wash, and with this being the 10th anniversary, I was super excited!  My first stop was the Baci Shop display where I happily discovered this lovely green sweater dress set out as a free gift.

The Last Leaves of Summer

I have to admit, although I always love to see the arrival of autumn, I quickly miss the lush foliage of summer.  With this figure-hugging frock in a lovely green-ombre color scheme, I’ll be able to carry the hues of summer right along with me as time marches on.   I love the way the Last Leaves Dress is packed with realistic knitted details from the ribbed cuffs to the diamond shaped pattern surrounded by cabled rows.  The long sleeves will be sure to keep me toasty warm while the folded down collar offers a sexy peek at my shoulders.   Since the gift package includes sizes for classic as well as mesh avatars, it’s bound to have just the right fit for you.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

A Slight Navigational Mishap

Wrong Turn

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to head to another beach to continue enjoying our long weekend, but, sadly, his navigational skills are not quite up to par with his fantastic nose.  We got hopelessly lost after a wrong turn, and while trying to find the correct route, ran out of gas.  Well, if I have to be sidelined, at least I can be stranded in style…

Free Shorts?  Count Me In!

Before leading us down the wrong path somewhere along the way, Ripley sniffed out a great find at the [WellMade] in world store, so I can’t be too upset with him for his co-piloting abilities.  In addition to ten other free gifts for WellMade group members, the generous designer has set out these cuffed Natallie shorts for free.  Best of all, the WellMade group is completely free to join.  Adorned with two columns of triple buttons, the shorts fit my Maitreya mesh body perfectly.  The gift package includes a color change HUD that enables you two choose between this deep crimson shade and a navy blue hue.  If you don’t have a group slot available, you can also pick up these summertime staples at the [WellMade] Marketplace shop for only 1L.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBODY
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Textures and Colors Galore

Back when The Cart Wash Sale was in full swing, I blogged about a cute little white Babado top in my post {HERE}.  Since that time, Bacidalucia Oh has created a new version which includes a HUD enabling you to select one of four texture options and 18 color choices.  To coordinate with my shorts, I opted for a deep red shade with the first of the four background prints, but there are so many other available combinations….all for only 49L.  You get the same off the shoulder fit, and softly draped fabric, finished with ric-rack trim as the original, with multiple options for customization.  To add this cropped top to your inventory, teleport over to the Baci shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, M, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

A Trail of Ripley Snacks

Instead of handing a map to my hound with a nose for fashion, I probably would have been better off leaving a trail of Ripley snacks to follow, kind of Hansel and Gretel style.  Live and learn, I guess…  Now, do any of you wonderful readers have a gallon of gas you can spare? 😉 Until my next post, happy shopping!

Do You Believe in Magic?

Do You Believe in Magic?

Happy Wednesday, Fabulous Readers! Today, Ripley and I bring your our final find from The Cart Wash Sale.  You’ll find my lovely White Magic frock at the Baci Shop.  I know, I know, you’re probably thinking “Time to get your eyes checked, Kat – that dress is NOT white!”  I felt like being the Lady in Red today, so I used the texture change HUD, which is tucked inside the package, to alter the hue of my dress to this deep crimson.  If red is not your color, you have 8 other options available to you, including white.  Featuring side cut outs, fastened with buckle straps, and a generously flared skirt, this summer dress will keep you pleasantly cool on the hottest afternoon.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Where the Wild Flowers Grow

Where the Wild Flowers Grow

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend!  Ripley and I started it off with a long walk in the woods at the beautiful Hobbiton Sim.  If you haven’t visited there, it’s well worth the trip.  The landscaping is beautifully done, and there are so many lovely spots to snap pictures, as well as places for dancing, chatting, and even some light-hearted role play.

Let Us Dance in The Sun With Wildflowers in Our Hair

For only 10L each, I created a casual and care free, bohemian summer look with a sweet top and denim micro mini from the Baci Shop stand at The Cart Wash.  The Babado top left my shoulders free to soak up some sun rays, and draped in soft folds to end above my waist.  Ric rac trim added a playful finishing touch to the bottom hemline.  Trendy and chic, a crop top is a summer wardrobe must-have, in my book.  Just in case white isn’t your style, the package includes a HUD with 80 choices so you can tint your Babado top to your liking.  The white hue of the shirt coordinated beautifully with my micro mini skirt.  The soft touch of lace trim helped tie together the outfit and added a romantic feel.

Playing off the bohemian vibe, I chose to wear a crown of daisies in my hair and held a bouquet of wildflowers for my photo, which I found at the La & Li Style shop on the Marketplace for only 35L.  A pretty, yellow, animated butterfly is included with the posies.  The cute little critter slowly flapped its wings, as it perched on a daisy.  If you’d like to wear a different hairstyle, an orchid for your hair is nestled inside the box for you to tuck in your tresses.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in sizes XS, M, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Uh Oh…

As I have been sitting here writing my post, some clods of dirt just sailed through the air at the edge of my vision. Ripley, tired of waiting for me to finish, wandered off and decided to do some excavating in a flowerbed at the Broadfoot Residence.  Oh dear, I’d better go see if I can repair the damages… I do hope we won’t be in too much trouble!  Until my next post, happy shopping!
