Hello Fabulous Readers! Today it was time for Ripley’s annual visit to the V-E-T. He was due for his rabies shot and a few other nasty pokes, so on the way home, it was time for some shopping therapy. Aren’t I a lucky girl to have a pooch who loves bargain-hunting as much as I do? After the promise of “Ripley-snacks,” my hound with a nose for fashion quickly tracked down two Fabulous Finds that we’re “bubbling” with excitement to share with you. Ripley didn’t have to search far…these goodies include two gifts for Fab Free Group members.

There are so many wonderful gifts available to Fabulously Free members, and the list is growing every day!
For our first Fabulous Find, I slipped on the free, sleek Karmyn dress from #Bubbles. With two curve-hugging silky mauve sides connected by a creamy, lacy panel, what’s not to love about this dress? Its soft colors are sure to flatter any avatar. A quick jaunt over to the Free Dove yielded my accessories which are a free gift set from Chop Zuey. The purpley-pink tone of the center gem stone surrounded by gleaming diamonds perfectly echoed the color scheme of my dress. With an application of subtle matte lipstick from Birth, Nefertiti eyeliner from Euphoric and Star Bliss nail polish from Livia (only 10L on The Marketplace – score team Ripley!), I’m all glamm’d up and ready to go!
Of course, after a morning at the animal hospital and bargain hunting, Ripley was ready for some well-deserved R and R at the lovely “A Painter’s Link” sim. He brown-bagged his Ripley-snacks and I brought along a picnic lunch to enjoy underneath a shady maple tree. For this outing, I needed a more casual outfit, so I combined Candys Capris from Cartiera Designs with two of our other finds of the day: the strappy, pink spiked shoes from Living Vintage Couture (another Free Fab Free Group Gift) and SG Apparel’s Rhapsody Gypsy top. The fun, unusual shoes left my fresh French manicure from By Snow (0L on The Marketplace) free to sparkle in the dappled sunshine. My pink crop top coordinated perfectly with my shoes, but if pink is not your color, the top comes with a color-change HUD with several other options. This top is a featured item in this week’s Fifty5 Thursdays sales line up. The sale runs through Sunday, but some designers keep up the sale items up for an entire week. All in all, these separates combined to create a fun, playful outfit for our afternoon leisure time.
Right now, Ripley is snoozing away his active morning, but I’m sure he’ll wake up soon raring to seek out some more Fabulous Finds to share with our wonderful readers. Until next time, happy shopping!
