Club Wear in Two Stops and 3 Linden

Garage

Love was mentioning how she moved from the big city to a small town when she was young and brave. I grew up on a farm… it didn’t even qualify as a small town… and when I went off to college, I moved away to the city. I remember going to clubs and bars for the first time just to play pool because back home, the closest town nearest me didn’t allow women into the pool hall (yes it was that old fashioned!). So when I got to the city I was so excited to go and just play pool at all the hang out joints! I’d dress up for a night on the town and head out, buy a diet pepsi and play pool. It was great fun!

The perfect outfit.

This outfit I’ve put together is perfect for club wear and will only cost you 3 Linden total and a little bit of hunting time. You’ll also only have to make 2 stops to get the dress, shoes, and hair!

First, make a pit stop at Barbed Wire Kisses. They are participating in two great hunts right now. For 1L as part of the Cute and Curvy Hunt, you can hunt down a lolly pop and pick up my cute little two piece outfit. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya & Isis

While you’re at Barbed Wire Kisses, be sure to hunt down the globe for the World Tour Hunt and buy it for 2L. You’ll get the shoes in the picture above that are almost a perfect match for the Cute and Curvy outfit! These heels come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

New Hair too!

Take a last stop to Desmonia and you’ll be all set. The hair I’m wearing in the picture comes in a full fatpack of colors and currently the group is free to join. But HURRY! This is a limited time offer and the group is set to go back to a join fee any time now. You don’t want to miss out!

New City

Rainy Day_001

“There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave.”
― Charlotte Eriksson

My friend and I went sim exploring and ended up at Tralala’s Diner. It’s this little city street with vendors and it’s raining hard and there is this urban “crunch” about it. It made me think of this quote about how I like to wander new places… but I never really intend to stay in them. I’m always bound to go home. That’s just who I am.

An outfit for the city…

I found a new outfit, perfect for visiting city streets at Barbed Wire Kisses, courtesy of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt. All the gifts in this hunt are free so I picked this one up for 0L. You get the top and the skirt (you can wear them separately) in several mesh sizes to suit your needs. I like the details of the rivets and the buckles that I think make this outfit super sexy.

Dress mesh size compatibility:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A good book.

Library_001

I love a good book… and old libraries are a favorite haunt of mine. I’m here at the library at Lorrey checking out the stacks of books to see what I can find.

Heading to the Library.

Before I headed to the shelves I spent a little time with my friend who always has his eye on the ball for a good deal. He really liked the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt and clued me in to this fantastic shirt by Shae’s Designs. It’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time, and I love the detailing of the rivets and the chain ties at the neckline. It comes in several sizes too!

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Another Dirty Little Secret…

Another dirty little secret along the Hunt are my shoes! Yes, my friend was at it again, and pointed out this great pair of shoes by Barbed Wire Kisses. These shoes come with metal details and buckles as well and will fit Maitreya, Slink, or Belleza feet and once you find the little black bag they are yours for only 1L.

Finally…

Finally! I found the book I was looking for! It’s the Fabulously Free Tome of secrets! I knew it was here somewhere! Better yet, this Tome is a FabFree Group gift from Deadly Nightshade! Like all FabFree group gifts, it is completely free with your FabFree group tag. Just stop by the Deadly Nightshade store to pick it up. In your gift package, you’ll get the Tome in a handheld version that includes a holding pose and you’ll also get a rezzable decoration version of the book. What a perfect gift for the FabFree lover!

The Truth Is, I Need Some Puppy Therapy!

Puppy Therapy

Hello Fabulouses!  Aren’t these little guys adorable?  Ripley and I stopped today for a picnic lunch on the Bay of Dreams sim, and while we polished off our food, these little stow-aways snuck into our basket.  I guess we will just have to take them home with us!

I Discovered the Truth

When I logged on to SL today after work, I was thrilled to see a notice from the Truth Hair VIP group.  Zoya, the free March gift, sat patiently waiting for me all bundled up in the group notices.  This lovely updo style has whispy tendrils that beautifully frame the face, and a collection of curls pinned up in the back.  You can add on optional bangs, and long front and back sections to change up the hairstyle.  In my photo, I am featuring the bangs and the long section which has escaped the pins to flow down my back.  I am absolutely in love with this loosely gathered updo!  This versatile hairstyle suits both a formal look and the more casual outfit I am sporting today.  To add Zoya to your inventory, you must be a member of the Truth Hair VIP group , which has a 350L join fee, but the one time investment is well worthwhile because each month, members receive a free full fat pack of a new Truth Hair design.

All Tied Up in Knots

My knotted top today is another 1L hunt prize in the What’s Your Category Hunt.  The Alexandra shirt from Barbed Wire Kisses features a mauve colored fabric with a soft sheen.  With rolled back cuffs and a crisp collar, this top is perfect for an afternoon in the park.  The hunt prize package includes mesh for Isis, TMP, Curvy, Fine, Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, Physique and Venus as well as mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, and L.  For a daring look, you can wear this top all on its own, but I chose to pair it with BSassy’s cropped Mix and Match Venice Tank in Rose, which I picked up on the Marketplace for only 49L.  It provided complete coverage yet fit snugly under my over shirt.

Looks Like I Need to Stock Up on Ripley Snacks

Our little surprise passengers’ tummies are growling audibly, so Rip and I had better scurry on home and fix up a batch of kibble and a dessert of the pupster’s favorite treats.  I hope his attitude toward sharing has improved since the incident with Baloo the guard bear!  Until my next post, wonderful readers, happy shopping!
