Pretty in Plaid

Pretty in Plaid

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  After a visit to the vet today, Ripley is snoozing by my side as I type this post.  All the excitement just wore him out.  Actually, he kind of looks like I felt after my flu shot earlier this week…  Poor boy!  At least he doesn’t need any more shots for awhile.  Before we headed out to the pet doc, the pupster and I discovered a free group gift to share with you.

Rich Hues for Autumn

My Fall Dress from Sevyn East features a black sleeveless sweater tucked into a loosely pleated plaid skirt that is topped off with bow tied at the waist.  One of my favorite outfits back in high school included a skirt very similar to this one, so as soon as I saw this beauty, I knew I had to have it!  I really love the deep colors, which are perfect for fall.  Although it looks like this frock is composed of separate pieces, it is actually all-in-one.  With sizes for classic avatars in addition to two mesh body versions, this free gift is a great addition to your fall wardrobe.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport over to Sevyn East, activate the group tag (don’t worry – it’s completely free to join!) and tap the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Once I am able to rouse Ripley from his well-deserved slumber, we will travel around the grid, and locate another Fabulous Find to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Not Ready for Cold Weather

I wear short skirts_001

Not ready for cold weather…

I’m not ready for cold weather. It got nippy here where I live and then the weather warmed up yesterday and it prompted me to look for warmer clothes in Second Life too. So I was really pleased when I saw that Kom‘s November group gift was this really pretty (and versatile) short skirt. It comes in all your favorite body sizes and includes a color change hud with 7 colors to choose from as well. I was partial to this teal color which I paired with a blueberry gift top that I blogged a while back that you can now get on the marketplace for just 1L.

Skirt sizes available:

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

Something pretty

I wanted a little something extra to go with my outfit so I stopped by The Forge to see what was available. Sometimes in-store gachas hold sweet surprises. I discovered the Boadicea’s Necklaces and really liked the celtic look and fine detailing on them. I gave the 50L gacha a spin and pulled one of the commons in “rust” which matched my outfit very nicely. The rares were quite beautiful as well and would be worth a few extra pulls to try to nab one at just 50L per spin.

Fringe Benefits

FlowersMP1L
Happy Sunday Fabulouses!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend :).  When I was working on my last post with the sweet dollarbie marketplace find, I came across another 1L top and jacket combination that I couldn’t wait to tell you about.

On The Fringe

The cropped suede fringe jackets of my youth appear to be making a comeback.  I had one, most of us girls did.  That special suede jacket that spent an entire cheque of earnings at your $4 an hour paying afterschool job and only came out on the weekend, probably once or twice because you didn’t buy that $20 can of leather protector, spilled “party beverages” on it, and then had no money left for dry-cleaning.  This happened so much, that in a similar fashion it was part of the story line in the movie “Can’t Buy Me Love”.

Anyways…  in Second Life you don’t need to worry about all of that!  You can buy this baby for 1L in the Flower marketplace store (even comes with the floral top!), and wear it over and over!

Flower Beige Jacket With Top Sizes Included:

  •  XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Venus

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara

Jenny Don’t Be Hasty

JTHMooh
Hey there Fabulouses! Yesterday Kathryn showed you a super cute top that is just 1L for The Jerky Turkey Hunt [HERE], and I did a little orange feather (that’s the hunt icon… an orange feather!) hunting myself, and found that MOoH! is also participating in TJTH and has a really nice prize too.

What Will You Get For 1L?

Jenny is the prize you’ll have once you locate the orange feather at the MOoH! store.  It’s actually considered a dress, but it’s short enough that if you prefer it as a top with a cute pair of jeans like I do, you totally can!  It comes with a texture change HUD as well so you can change the blouse and frock to a few different colours to switch up your look according to your personal taste.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP

Get Moving!

BelleEGGThey say “Home is where the heart is”, but which one of these boxes did I pack it in??

Hey there Fabulouses! One of the many cool things about Second Life is that you can pick up your entire home at the drop of a hat and go from a beach bungalow to a mountain chalet or New York studio, or where ever your heart desires…  Even a tree house or a cave if you like!  You don’t even have to change locations if you don’t want to, you can just pick it all up, and put something new down.  If only it was that easy in real life!

Enough Babbling Love, What ARE You Wearing?

My casual fall outfit today was put together with a couple of new goodies I came across this week – which was perfect timing, because they look great together!

You can pick up the LFE Leonie Sweater I am wearing today for just 10L in several mesh body sizes on the marketplace, and in fact…  if you do a little browsing through their marketplace listings, you’ll find that you can pick up the same sweater in several prints for just 10L each.

Sizes Included:

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

What goes better with a cozy sweater than some fuzzy warm boots?

Not much, and you can find the Mina Boots as a free group gift at Belle Epoque with a 10L join fee.  These boots will fit any kind of mesh avatar using their alpha huds and may work with the system body too if you happen to have the right alpha layer already in your inventory (alpha layer not incuded).  You will not only find the gorgeous brown colour I am wearing, but all of the following colours in your gift folder!

Boot Colours:

  • Black
  • Brown
  • Coffee
  • Navy
  • Olive
  • Wine

Love Me, November…

Love Me, November...

I love November. It’s not any of the holidays associated with it. It’s the month itself. To me it is sort of a lull between rushes of different holidays. I like the beginning of the month before the madness of all the winter holidays set in.

I spent the morning hunting down both beautiful places to visit… and some time on the trail of the Bittersweet Hunt. The Bittersweet Hunt lasts until November 25, giving you plenty of time to get in on the prizes. It includes female, male, and unisex gifts at the various locations, depending upon where you go.

First stop…

Trashed main-store where I hunted down the skull icon for the Bittersweet hunt and paid just 1 little Linden for these amazing Denim Love Shorts! They are covered in cute pink hearts and the pockets hang down past the cut off edges and they come in all your favorite mesh body sizes: Classic (XS – XL); eBody; TMP; Tonic (Fine, Curvy); Maitreya Lara; Slink (Hourglass & Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, & Venus).

Free buggy rides…

Then I was off for a free buggy ride at the Land of Owls, a sim design by Cica Ghost. The sim has a sort a sort of haunted feeling (not like Halloween haunted) but like surreal haunted… and there are buggies around the sim that you can hop into and will take you around on a free tour of this amazing build. So take a teleport down and check this one out!

Instant Hair Crush

Exile1L
Like Falling Autumn Leaves

You know what else falls this Autumn?  The price on the brand new Bento Instant Crush Hairstyle by Exile in their marketplace store – all the way down to 1L!  Their usual “all or nothing pack” price is 1250, so this is a really sweet savings.  This long pulled back hairstyle with side swept bangs includes a bento version as well as ALL the colour pack HUDS!

To Swish Or Not To Swish

The bento version is actually a lot of fun to watch swishing and moving around with my avatar, although if you prefer no movement, the regular hair is included as well.
