Wildest Dreams

Wildest Dreams

Say you’ll remember me

Have you ever had a song that gets stuck in your head? I’ve had a run in or three with those pesky earworms that make themselves right at home and refuse to leave (i.e The Song That Doesn’t End). Sometimes you’re unlucky and it’s the most inane ditty ever (i.e The Song That Doesn’t End) and other times it’s…Taylor Swift. I’ve had Wildest Dreams bouncing about the ol’ cranium for days now and it’s even inspired this post.

Standing in a nice dress, staring at the sunset babe

Thankfully, I have the Fabulously Free in SL group gift list to fall back on and didn’t have to scour the grid in search of the perfect outfit to base this post around.  There’s more than one gorgeous (I wouldn’t just use the word ‘nice’ to describe them) dress on this list and what I’ve got to show you today is called Melania + Kamiri +. I don’t usually wear gowns, on account of not being able to quite pull them off besides, last time I tried someone got eaten, but this stunning number manages to detract from my chronic awkward penguin-ness by having not a few factors going for it. With its figure hugging cut and a slit in the skirt that goes right up to the hip on the left side, the Melania gown is perfect for those dramatic moments in (second) life. The way the material is gathered to the left puts to mind Grecian draped dresses as does its intricate gold trimming. Speaking of, the deep gold tones blend in nicely with the gown’s main shades of turquoise, giving it a stately feel. If I get around to visiting SL ballrooms or role-playing, this dress would certainly be my go to pick.

Sizing details:

  • Five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL)
  • Five Fitmesh sizes (XS-XL)
  • Additional Fitmesh sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink Physique and Hourglass bodies.

Included as well is a great alpha layer to help with the fitting of the dress. FabFree group gifts are as always available at no cost and you don’t have to spend any L to get your tag either. Visit this page {HERE} to get a low down on how to join up if you’re not already in the group.

Red lips and rosy cheeks, say you’ll see me again

While makeup is great, accessories do play a part in augmenting your entire look. Once again I didn’t have to look very far for jewelry as the most fitting match came in the form of the Beloved Jewelry’s FabFree group gift. The peridot gemstones of this necklace and earrings set melds beautifully with the coloring of the Melania gown and I really like the leaf-like design on both pieces as it links up well to the flowery patterns of the gown’s golden trim. In the gift package, you’ll receive a pair of earrings as well as two versions of the necklace (one with a resizer script and one without). Permissions are set to copy so you’ll be able to make backups before embarking on any modifications. This lovely and finely crafted peridot set is free with your free group tag. If you’d like a closer look at the Peridot set, check out this post {HERE}

Even if it’s just pretend

And that’s a wrap. I have to find my way down the ground level with the sun in my eyes now. Maybe I’ll meet Mr ‘Tall and handsome as hell’ on my way down, or I could lag and face plant my way off this cliff. The latter’s more likely. See you guys later!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/30/2016 – Beloved Jewelry

Beloved JewelryHello There Fab Free’rs! It’s Friday, and we know what that means: Fab Free Designer Friday! This weeks post is dedicated to Beloved Jewelry. I have to tell you, it’s been quite a day of blunders for me today. I actually had an entire post written and photos taken of what I thought was the Beloved Jewelry main store, only to find out that I’d been at their satellite store the whole time.  If Love hadn’t come to help me “find” the Beloved Jewelry Fab Free exclusive gift, I would have been in big trouble. My whole post would have been about the right shop, but wrong location! Needless to say, I have it all sorted out and Love probably got a good laugh!

My mishap aside, the Beloved Jewelry store is really elegantly set up with a grand desk at the entrance. On the desk you’ll find a little black box with a FREE Beloved Jewelry group gift, and a second group only vendor that will allow you to purchase a box full of previous group gifts. Just below these fantastic gifts, you’ll also see 3 group exclusive group gifts for other groups including the Fabulously Free group gift blogged previously by Astrid. Now I am getting a little ahead of myself. I got distracted by all the fabulous gifts. The Beloved Jewelry store has a wide range of gorgeous jewelry that ranges in style from casual to formal. You’ll even find some beautiful shoes to suit your formal wear needs. Most of the jewelry is for the ladies only, however the shop does have an entire section dedicated to wedding jewelry and bridal sets which of course include male sizes. If you’re looking for a gift for someone you care for, or even a gift just for yourself, you’ll want to stop through Beloved Jewelry. As you browse through the store you’ll even find specials and discounted items for shopping events. Just look closely at the signage throughout the store, everything is clearly marked.Dollarbies As you’re browsing and hopefully shopping, you may want to take note of the wall behind the front desk area. The back of that wall is where you’ll find the Beloved Jewelry dollarbie section. As you can see from the above photo there are a lot of beautiful jewelry sets to choose from in a wide range of styles.  These items are all no transfer so they aren’t meant for gifting, but rather would be a lovely and inexpensive way to treat yourself. I sincerely hope you’ll take a moment to check out Beloved Jewelry, and don’t forget to pick up all the awesome gifts while you’re there.

It’s Spooktacular…

It's Spooktacular.... 2

Right now if you head to Swank events you can participate in the Spooktacular Goth Hunt (there’s a haunted house at the event to visit too). Loki and I hunted around and picked up the matching FREE lingerie set at the House of Ruby booth in Slink or Omega appliers for mesh bodies. Just go to the booth and look for the little black rose, buy it for 0L and unpack and you’re all set for a special evening.

I paired my lingerie set with the Fabulously Free Group Gift from Beloved Jewelry. This pretty gold and blue diamond drop necklace and earring set was a perfect touch to finalize my sexy look. It’s classic jewelry and would be lovely with any style of outfit. Think casual to gown to wedding… you wouldn’t have to wear lingerie of course.

Just join the Fabulously Free group in world by pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about in local and then clicking the link to join.

Teleport to Beloved Jewelry and pick up your FREE gift wearing your FabFree group tag.

It's Spooktacular...

As I mentioned before, Loki also stopped by Swank with me and picked up the hunt gift from House of Ruby. The men’s FREE gift is these glittery briefs in red which come in a Slink or Omega applier hud.

Loki paired his FREE briefs with an equally nice piece of FREE jewelry from Chop Zuey. Not long ago, he showed you one of the group gifts [HERE], but you can get the Gibraltar necklace in gold for FREE as a FREE to all gift for Fabfree members courtesy of Chop Zuey, no group required. As mentioned before, this necklace is resizeable, so though it is meant for men, it would make a nice ladies necklace too.

My Ruby Slippers

My Ruby Slippers

I stopped for coffee and donuts this morning… as well as the newspaper. Do any of you all still read the paper? It gets that black ink all over your fingers, but its great for setting out on a counter to cool fresh baked goods. Of course this was long before folks used wire rack cooling methods I suppose? Either way, I have more than just baked  goodies for you today, because Glitterati has set out their June Group gift for you and it is cute as pie!

This little dress with its red and gold flowers comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits and is perfect for a casual morning coffee run. I love the embossed details on the sleeves as well. This dress is yours FREE with your group tag. Group membership is a one time fee of 100L, but remember, you will not only be getting this pretty dress… but you’ll also be getting access to many past group gifts (as well as future gifts) as well. The fee quickly pays for itself.

My Ruby Slippers 2

While scanning the marketplace, I happened upon this topaz jewelry set by Beloved Jewelry for only 1 little Linden. You’ll be getting the resizable necklace, a pair of earrings and a ring too (not shown). The set is well made and easily adjustable for a great fit. It matched the color of the flower petals on my dress (and the buckles on my shoes) so nicely that I just couldn’t pass it up!

My Ruby Slippers 3

You’ve already seen a few posts here on the Fab about the Cart Wash Sale. Love showed you a post [here] and I showed you a post [here] and [here]. And I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more goodies from the Sale here on FabFree!

I stopped by the Cart Wash Sale again today, and this time I picked up a set of pretty red flats to compliment my new dress. These are called Fara by Lindy Modern & Retro shoes… but they certainly remind me of a pretty set of ruby slippers. And personally, I think every gal needs a pair of ruby slippers in her wardrobe! These pretty shoes are only 10L and will fit slink flat feet.

From Day to Night

I was doing a little writing for FabFree last night, when someone dropped off a package at the door. You know I couldn’t help but give it a little shake! I never did figure out what was inside… but I sure tried! It was one of those “Wait to Open” kind of things!

But this fun pose is one you don’t have to wait to open… thank goodness! I picked it up from the Eternal Dream Poses advent Calendar for just 10L. If you are in the group its FREE (you can also join the group for 200L and then all 24 advent gifts will be yours FREE as well as many future gifts and offers!).

From Day to Night 1

Once I was done trying to trying to have a premature peek into my giftie, I remembered that I had some fashion finds to share with you. I stopped by Christmas on 34th Street earlier this week and found four piles of presents under four different trees (look in the four corners of the sim!) and put together my usual mix and match look! My go to full get together evening starts out with this classically lined suit by [LaVian&Co] called RedLabel Under the Boardwalk. I love the wide belt and striped lapels. It came in all the standard sizes as well as fitted mesh… and if you look in the picture below you will see that you can also take the jacket off because it includes a stunning Maitreya applier top in black for additional versatility. Can you believe all this was only 10L as a great gift under one of those trees? Score!

My luscious jewelry was another 10L score by Beloved Jewelry. This Mishka Set would be perfect under any gal’s tree! The detailing is fabulous on the necklace and earrings and better yet? Color change! Yes! Can you believe it? And again, for just 10L!

From Day to Night 2

I wasn’t done with my gifts yet though. I also picked up this sexy updo by Analog Dog Hair called Enja. It comes in two parts with the bun on top and the curls around the face that fall over the shoulder just so. For 10L you are getting a full fat pack… that’s hard to beat! And this sexy style is perfect for day or night either one!

I knew I needed something for my feet, so I snatched up these stylish White Satin Stilettos for Slink feet by Lowen, another 10L find under one of those Christmas trees.

My pose in this picture is yet another Eternal Dream Poses advent giftie! Yours again for just 10L or FREE with your 200L group join. (Plus I needed some hot cocoa after all that gift snooping!)

From Day to Night 3

Had you noticed how in my first picture the top under my jacket was white? I just love it when I can mix and match! Though the [LaVian&Co] suit comes with a gorgeous black undertop (shown in my second picture) I also nabbed this trio of lingerie by Blacklace from under one of the trees. For just 10L you get all three colors in the gift box and I found that the white looked especially nice under the Black and white suit.

My pose in the picture above was another 10L gift you can find under one of the trees. Snatch up this sexy set of stands by oOo Studio called Winterkiss. The box includes three poses for Second Life photographers.

So, I packed a lot into that post! But I hope you found something you liked. I’m going to get back to the hot cocoa and snuggle up with some blankets by the fire!

Those Hot Summer Nights

summer2

Happy Monday, and happy summer!  To celebrate the new season,  I hauled myself on over to the Flawless Hot Summer Nights cart sale/hunt to pick up some truly awesome freebies and sale items.  There are dozens of carts on the sim, each with great deals all under $100L, a free gift (hunt for the ice pop!)   I picked up a few things while I was there… okay, a lot of things! This cute cross front top from Saris Creations was one of my favorite finds.  It has a sweet, flowing feel and a great texture.  It pairs perfectly with the Pale Green Necklace from the Beloved Jewelry cart and the Life Nail Polish from Posh Pixels.

It may be summer now, but these eggstrodinarily cute shoes from the MM boards at Bitch Heels are still among my favorites to wear.  Created for SLink high feet, but they are unrigged, so they have the potential to work with other foot styles. The boards do rotate through a few different shoes, but they all are amazing and worth a slap.  The pedicure is courtesy of the same Posh Pixel hud.  It includes 8 cheerful and sometimes psychedelic polishes for Slink hands and feet.  Each polish set is so bright and cheerful.

Here’s to a wonderful Monday, and an even better summer!
