I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are as ready as I am for some fall colors.  Today, Ripley and I are bringing you a little slice of fall foliage as we share a couple of budget friendly Fabulous Finds.  I hope you like them!  Before I get into the details, if you are looking for a beautifully decorated autumn landscape, I’d highly recommend a visit to the Cherishville sim.  The puster and I really enjoyed the oranges, browns and other fall colors when we were there. They provided a wonderful contrast for the dark hues of my outfit.

A Great Hat Speaks for Itself

First up, my cheeky cap is a gift from the Inventory Trends store.  With a darling bow and just enough of a brim to shield your eyes from the sun, the Velma hat adds a functional and cute finishing touch to my ensemble.  Best of all, I picked it up for free, just by being a member of the Third Life Group.  The group has no join fee, so I didn’t have to pay a single Linden dollar for my newest fashion accessory.  Although the hat cannot be resized, I was able to move it around on my head and I resized my hair underneath to get the fit I was looking for.  The thoughtful designer tucked a HUD inside with three texture options so you can coordinate with different color schemes.  In addition to the black I am sporting, you could also choose red or a dark brown.  While you’re in the shop, you might want to try picking up one of the fourteen other gifts set out on the wall for members of various groups.  I’ve included a close up photo below so you can get a better look at Velma.

Velma

There’s Something Sexy…

about a girl with an attitude and a pair of leather pants.  The mesh black leather pants from the Bang Bang shop on the Marketplace pick up where Velma left off in the attitude department.  With a soft sheen, zippered pockets and a skin tight fit, you will feel super skinny, sexy and toasty warm when you wear this wardrobe essential.  No chilly autumn breeze will work its way through these pants!  Best of all, with a price tag of a mere 10 Linden dollars, you’ll hardly notice the difference in your bank account balance after your purchase. The folder includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars, so there is something for everyone tucked inside.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatiblity:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

All on a Lazy Summer Day

Think Pink

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I put his talented nose to the test today and headed down the trail of the Lazy Summer Day Hunt.  Our first discovery over at Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes actually inspired my outfit.  I hope you are in the mood to think pink, because that’s where my mind went.  The best part?  My entire outfit cost just $26 Linden dollars!

The Inspiration

After locating the lounge chair hunt icon concealed inside Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes, I was inspired to put together this entire look just based on these cute Kendra sneakers.  My picture does not do justice to the intricate designs on the canvas of the sneakers, so I’ve included the vendor close up below.  I immediately fell in love with the delicate white blossoms and stitched swirls.  The white piping, sole and lacing are just perfect for completing the look of this casual set of footwear.  They are designed to fit classic avatars as well as Slink and Maitreya mesh feet.  A shoe base and alpha layer are tucked inside the folder.  To add these shoes to your inventory, all you have to do is find the hunt object and pay the teensy 1 Linden dollar price.  There is a hint giver in the shop if you don’t have a super sniffer dog 😉 or if you need a nudge in the right direction.

You Can Never Go Wrong With a Little Pink

The other day, I told you about a group gift that I had picked up just for being a member of the Safira Store Group, and I mentioned how there are 64 past gifts up for grabs.  Well, this adorable Mindy top is one of those free gifts.  Of course, I chose pink to coordinate with my new footwear, but with the included texture change HUD, I had the option to go with five prints or four other solid colors.  It’s like getting ten tops in one package!  Its ruffled trim on the hemline really ups the cuteness factor!  It is designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body.  You do have to be a member of the Safira Store Group to receive this gift, and there is a 50 Linden dollar join fee, but there are a LOT of other goodies available to members, plus group-only lucky boards, so I am super happy that I joined.

But You Said 26 Linden Dollars…

The final touch for my summer day outfit was a new pair of Worn Denim Shorts that I picked up on the Marketplace at the Bang Bang shop for 25 Linden dollars.  They are short but not too short and feature folded up cuffs and a beaded belt around the waist.  The jeans texture on these shorts is really well done and the stitching and button closure are very realistic looking.  The folder contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  I’m sure these will become a summer time fave of mine!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Born on the 4th of July

We love holidays in SL.  There’s always great gifts from designers celebrating.  So here are a few patriotic gifts I’ve picked up lately!  The 4th July dress shown above is from Glitterati by Sapphire.  The skirt can be removed and it makes a really cute starry swimsuit too!  The braided Jasmine hair was sent to the Hair Solutions sub-o members yesterday.  The hair came in the most wanted pack with dark cherry, midnight, mocha, and platinum.

Be Happy! group members can pick up the July 4th skirt and bikini perfect for any celebration.

I showed the 4th of July bikini from Glam Couture yesterday, but since I have a theme going I decided to show it again.  The bikini is free in store for sub-o members.  The seductive Katherine hair isn’t free, but is a fabulous new release at Hair Solutions.

Quality has a red stripe bikini available for the holiday.  Sassy! has a USA flag bikini free in store for group members.  Also, everything red, white, and blue is 50% off at Sassy!.  The Uncle Sam top hat is a gift at K & K Designs.

For a more subtle look grab the American Girl leggings and top from Butterfly EffectZ for only L$5!  I like how this outfit looks washed out and classic!  The ID4 bag is the perfect accessory for this look because it also has a classic washed out look.  The ID4 bag is a gift at Bang Bang.

BabyDoll group members can pick up the sexy short shorts, I ❤ USA rhinestone crop top, and heel flip flops.  While you’re there slap the midnight mania board for a sweet patriotic bikini.  Seriously if you are looking for anything patriotic BabyDoll is overflowing with red, white, and blue!  There’s even patriotic prim nails available!

There is a L$4 classic stripe tank top and jeans at RezIpsa Loc until July 5th.

Petunia has a classy Independence day layered tank and white tennis skirt available for a dollarbie.  This outift also comes with the matching bangles which are an awesome accessory for any of the outfits I’ve shown!

Alexohol Fashions sub-o members received the patriotic Wildflower skirt yesterday.  The curly Elenita hair is another not free but fabulous new release at Hair Solutions

Cortes’n’Rossini has the Bring this Flag outfit available for only L$2.  This outfit includes the latex shorts, top, pompom streamers, and crown.

The Victorian red, white, and blue ankle boots are by far my favorite find of the day.  The boots are a dollarbie at Juicy Shoes.  The 4th of July hair comes in black and blonde and is a dollarbie at DarkerSide.  A shape and eyelashes are also included in this gift.  The fourth of July bangles is from Rhedd Night Designs and was sent to the Fabulously Free in SL group, so check the notices!

As if it wasn’t painfully obvious, I am from the states.  Happy Fourth of July weekend everyone!!!
