Looking for a Black Rose

BlackRose

Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  Ripley and I were lucky enough to have some spare time to spend wandering the grid, and came across a beautiful frock to share with you today.  We hope you like it!

Fabulous and Free Frock

Just for being a member of the Fab Free group, you can scoop up this teal colored Lena dress over at BlackRose for the low price of………zero linden dollars.  Featuring criss-crossed shoulder straps , a curve-hugging design, and a hemline that falls to the knees, this baby will take you from a casual day look straight on into date night.  I love the realistic folds in the fabric and its flattering fit.  The deep hue will complement just about any skin tone, and its budget-friendly price tag will bring a smile to your face.  The package includes sizes for classic as well as mesh bodies.  Since the Fab Free group has no join fee, you can add this lovely outfit to your wardrobe completely for free!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Well, that’s a wrap for today.  It’s time to head out grocery shopping before the snowbirds fill the aisles, and thereby double the amount of time it takes to complete this weekly chore.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

The Perfect Pause

The Perfect Pause

October – the perfect pause between summer and winter.  I have always loved the crisp, cool days of October…..the beauty of the hills, the fallen leaves dancing in the breeze, and the hint of wood smoke in the air.  Although it signaled the close of summer, it also marked the end of the dreaded ragweed season that plagued my childhood.  Luckily, I now live in a part of the country where I don’t have to worry about sneezing and sniffling through the end of summer, nevertheless, I think I will always treasure autumn.

These Boots are Made For…

…traipsing through the leaves.  One thing I especially appreciated about the arrival of fall was pulling out cool weather clothing, and, of course, shopping for new favorites!  I recently discovered these amazing, over-the-knee Alanis boots, which are a free gift from Hilly Haalan for members of the Hilly Haalan Fashions group.  I opted for a basic black hue, but could have also used the texture-change Hud to select solid brown or a floral pattern in gray or yellow-gold.  With realistic wrinkles, and a figure-hugging fit, this pair of high heeled footwear will keep my feet and legs toasty and stylishly warm, well into late autumn.

Avatar Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh Classic Avatar (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Sassy Sleeveless Frock

As part of Fifty5 Thursday, I scooped up this belted Gabriella dress at BlackRose Fashion for only 75L.  With a sexy slit in the side, and a plunging neckline, this tailored, sophisticated dress showed off my curves.  It, too, comes with a texture-change HUD, which makes it a versatile addition to any wardrobe.  The special offering will be available only through Sunday, so if you love this dress as much as I do, don’t hesitate to TP on over to the shop.  The sale boards are located to the left of the main service desk in the center of the store.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Mask
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

Ripley and I are thrilled that we made it to Fall Break, and look forward to extra free time to discover some budget-friendly Fabulous Finds to share with you all.  First, though, we have to survive tire shopping for the old truck… Fun times!  I just hope I can convince the pupster not to christen the tires right away.  I want them looking pretty for at least a few days.  Wish me luck!

Hello there, Fabulous Readers.  We’ve all had them……times when everything just seems to go wrong and you just need to get away.  Today, Ripley and I took J.T.’s advice, and climbed right up to the top of the stairs on the Banana Bay sim to let our cares just drift right into space.  Now if only we had such a lovely spot in RL…

Up on the Roof In Style

Thanks to my free Aylen outfit from BlackRose Fasion, I’m definitely ready to kick back and relax while still looking beautiful.  With a rose colored crop top adorned with a beaded trim, and gray denim shorts tied with a coordinating pink belt, this set is all about trendy casual comfort.  Versatile, Aylen is designed to fit classic as well as a variety of mesh avatars.  To scoop up this duo for yourself, teleport over to BlackRose, activate the BlackRose Fashion group tag (it’s completely free to join!) and click the gift vendor on the desk of the main shop.

Something extra

I also stopped by E. Vary as one of their make up gifts had caught my eye. I love my current Maya applier that I’d picked up as a free gift (no longer available sorry!), it’s my new favorite, but I wanted a “pick me up” for it and decided that it needed a fresh look. E. Vary has out the Ilusion Gift as their free SL Frees & Offers gift. Just don your tag and pick it up for free. It’s an omega system applier make up.

I did discover that you either have to applier the lipstick or the eye-shadow and I wasn’t able to figure out how to apply both at the same time, but for free, I still feel the gift was well worth it. I donned one of the pretty lipstick shades to add to my look. I’ve included a picture of the HUD below to show you what all you will be getting with this free gift!

I See Your True Colours

BlackRose
A Primary Pairing

Good morning Fabulouses!  BlackRose Fashion, usually puts out one group gift per month, but this month there are two of them!  I haven’t even had a chance to try on the first one yet which is a floral printed dress, but when this sweet 2pc set came up as a second group gift, I jumped right in it.  The bright primary colours just screamed at me to wear them… and so I did.

The BlackRose inworld group is free to join, so you have nothing to lose and plenty to gain!  The Pencil Skirt and Top Set include both the mesh pencil skirt and laced top with off-the-shoulder sleeves in a variety of mesh and mesh body specific sizes.  As these come in two pieces, you can even choose to wear them separate if you like.

Sizes Included:

  • XS – XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Ebody
  • Tonic
  • TMP

What’s The Point?

With the primary colours and straight lines this outfit features, I went with a simple gold triangle point necklace that I picked up at FaMESHed as a free Anniversary Gift.  The FaMESHed group is free to join and you can find this gift at the RealEvil Industries display.
