She’s so Foxy!

Foxy Lady
Hello Fabulouses!  While browsing on the Marketplace, I found a foxy mini dress to share with you,  and Ripley even sniffed out a skulk of foxes to snap a photo with.  Yup, oddly enough, a group of foxes really are called a “skulk” or a “leash”……..I had to look that one up!  For only 50L, I snatched up the “Eve” dress from Yeliz.  With an amazing color/texture change HUD, the sky’s the limit with this sexy mini.  There are 35 different textures and 31 colors to choose from.  It has delicate shoulders straps, a deeply scooped back, and the cutest little cut out in the front.  Perfect for date night, or a casual day of shopping, this frock would make a lovely addition to your inventory.  As you can see from the list below, the Eve dress is designed to fit a wide range of avatars.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Flirty and Free

Free as a Dove

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Every once in a while, when I’m out walking Ripley, he puts his nose to the ground, and pulls me with single-minded determination.   Usually when this happens, my hound with a nose for fashion is leading me toward a fabulous discovery.  I’ve learned to just follow his instincts, and I haven’t been disappointed yet.

Free as a Dove

Today my pal dragged guided me to The Free Dove, and stood outside, his tail wagging happily.   As a new resident to second life (back in the virtual dinosaur age), I used to visit the shop all the time, but I haven’t journeyed there for quite some time.  I’m so glad the pupster steered me in that direction because I was able to scoop up this free, summery, mini dress from M&M Style.  With a cheerful dark blue and white print, and slender shoulder straps, this frock is perfect for a casual summer day.  It has a body-skimming fit that will flatter your figure, and ends with a slightly flared skirt. Although it’s not designed specifically for a mesh body, this dress comes in five sizes and one of them perfectly fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  An alpha layer is also tucked inside the package for those with classic avatars.

Thanks for the Reminder, Ripley!

There are many quality, free items at The Free Dove.  It’s well worth a visit.  I know I plan to return often to search for new Fabulous Finds to share with you all.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Slip Into a Little Red Dress

Lady in Red

Hello Fabulouses!  Mondays………nothing a little shopping can’t fix!  All you need to do is scoop up a sexy, little red dress.   The Ecce Bellus dress is a gorgeous, crimson frock crafted from crushed silk.  Slender shoulder straps, a curve-hugging fit, and a daring slit in the skirt will draw all eyes your way.   A low cut back provides a tantalizing glimpse of skin as it keeps you cool on a warm spring day.  Best of all, the mini is completely free for members of the Fabulously Free in SL Group.  All you have to do is switch to your Fab Free tag, teleport over the the Ecce Bellus shop, and give the board a tap.  The gift also includes the free coordinating Cassie Heels for Belleza and Slink High.  The graceful T-Strap style sandals continue the flirty feel of my outfit all the way down to the tips of my toes.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L

Despite the stormy gray skies, Ripley and I decided to take a stroll through the beautifully landscaped Black Cat Orcadi Island sim, and found a lovely bed of poppies to act as a backdrop for my photo.    Now *this* is definitely the way to shake off those Monday blues!  Until next time, happy shopping, Fabulous Readers!

No Dogs Allowed?!

No Dogs?!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I sure am happy it’s the weekend.  Since Ripley and I had such great luck at the Country Girl Hunt (you can see my last post {HERE}), we decided to check out The Flowerage Hunt 2. It’s grid-wide, and runs until May 31st, so you have plenty of time if you’d like to do some sleuthing of your own.  You’ll be looking for a flower in a vase, and each hunt gift costs just 1L.  Our first stop was JLZ Fashion, and in no time at all, we discovered this sweetly feminine, strappy mini dress.

Spring Beach

Perfect for the warm summer weather ahead, the Spring Beach frock is light and cheerful, with its all-over floral print. The soft colors and figure-hugging design will flatter any avatar.  I like the added detail of one strap dangling down on my right shoulder, which added a touch of whimsy to the outfit.  Sexy and sleek, this outfit made a welcome addition to my summer wardrobe collection.  A pair of dark sunglasses is also included in the hunt package, but since Ripley and I were strolling through a shady forest on the Peacehaven sim, I opted not to wear them for my photo.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL plus apha layer

About All the Cats…

As we explored the sim, Ripley and I came upon a clowder of cats gathered around a couple of old fashioned milk cans.  The little critters twined themselves around my legs, purring, and I scooped up one super-friendly white feline.  Upon noticing my canine companion, however, a few of the cats froze, and hissed a warning.  Ripley, always trying to be helpful, knocked over one of the galvanized containers, and milk trickled onto the ground.  The cats happily lapped up the creamy spill, but as soon as the pupster tried to help himself to some of the proceeds, a fierce conflict ensued, ending with yelps and a scratched nose.  Poor Ripley!  So much for trying to be helpful!  As we were taking our leave, two cats glared at Ripley, and pointed out the “No Dogs” sign.  “It’s all right, Pal, you’ll always be MY best friend,” I consoled my sidekick.  He wagged his tail happily, and we journeyed home, where I treated his battle scars.

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Butterfly Kisses

Spread Your Wings and Fly

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to Hobbiton this week, and I had the magical experience of having a butterfly alight on my outstretched hand as I stood in a garden of wildflowers.  If you haven’t traveled to this lovely sim, it’s well worth the trip!  Modeled after the Tolkien tales, and filled with whimsical references to scenery from the novels, Thunder Dragon Island offers optional, light-hearted role play, a peaceful setting, and spots for couples scattered throughout its landscape.

A Jeans and Tee Kind of Girl

Since I knew we would be exploring the wonders of nature, I opted for a casual spring look for our journey to the land of Bilbo Baggins.  I assembled my outfit from free group gifts available at My Style, and it was perfect for the mild spring weather we encountered.  The strappy, cream colored Kelly top  kept my shoulders free to feel the dappled sunshine.  I particularly enjoyed the loose-fitting satiny texture of the fabric.  My well-worn capris continued the carefree theme.  Complete with rolled cuffs, a buff colored belt, and a realistic, faded texture that echoed the milky hue of my tank, these pants are sure to become a spring wardrobe staple for me.  Both items of clothing are available completely for free as group gifts at the My Style store.  Simply swap over to the Avangardista tag for the Kelly tank and the My Style tag to scoop up the trousers.  If you’re currently not a member of either group, don’t let that stop you, as both groups have 0L join fees!

Included With the Kelly Top:

  • Fitmesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Included With the RAF Jeans:

  • Fitmesh for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Time for a Game of Fetch

My peaceful encounter with my new butterfly friend did not last long, as it was soon disturbed by a canine pal dropping a branch on my toes (ouch, Ripley!).  As the beautiful winged creature fluttered away, Rip gave a joyful woof and nudged the stick, just in case I hadn’t noticed its crash landing.  Guess I’d better indulge in his favorite past time in order to save my pedicure.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Dressed Like a Day Dream

I've Got a Blank Space

Hello there, Wonderful Readers!  You may have noticed the virtual flurry of posts lately about all the new presents for members of the in-world Fab Free Group, such as Edi’s post here, Love’s post here, Pru’s post here, and Loki’s post here.  If you haven’t, please do check them out!  The generosity of SL designers never ceases to amaze me!  There are so many gifties just for Fabulously Free in SL Group members, and it’s completely free to join.

This morning, after I refilled my coffee cup, I returned to find Ripley with his front paws perched up on my chair staring intently at the screen.  His tail was wagging briskly, and I knew my hound with a nose for fashion was on the trail of a mid-week Fabulous Find to share with you.  I’m a huge fan of Kira Paderborn and Jolene Carami over at Entice (as you could probably tell from my posts here and here).  When Ripley nudged the announcement from Love about a new, free gift from Entice, I scurried over to the Flawless sim to scoop it up.

I’ve Got a Blank Space

Featuring a deep magenta texture with subtle shimmers of colored sequins, the free, sleeveless Blank Space dress is loosely fitted and chic.  A simple black belt, worn low on the waist line, accents the deep shade of the dress beautifully.  The package includes standard mesh, plus an alpha layer for classic avatars, but also fits my Maitreya mesh body.  To pick up Blank Space for yourself, simply navigate to the Entice store, cross the footbridge, and head to the group gift section in the back.  Swap over to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, and tap the board.  Ta da!

Sizes Included:  Standard mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
Leave You Breathless

Finishing Touches

An elegant garnet Princess Solitaire necklace and earring set from Cae (a 75L gacha prize) echoed the rich tone of my new dress.  I splurged and picked up the matching Blank Space heels from Entice for 150L on the Marketplace to complete my look.  Perfectly coordinated, and dressed like a day dream, I accompanied Ripley to the Paramour Sim (thanks for the tip, Loki!) to snap a few photographs and look for little kittens to rescue.

Until Sunday, happy shopping, my friends!

Enticing Polka Dots Paired with Spooktacular Shoes

 

Spooktacular Polka Dots

Greetings, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  After recovering from his traumatic experience at the V.E.T. last week, Ripley quickly bounced back and soon headed off, nose to the ground.  With nary a step off target, he led me directly to Entice and didn’t stop until he sat in front of the Midnight Mania board.  After looking up at the polka dot dress, then back at me, Ripley whined, then tapped the board with his paw.  I bet you know by now, I’ve learned it’s best to follow my pup where ever he takes me.  Sure enough, Rip’s intuition was right on the money.  When I logged in to SL the next day, I saw the inventory offer from Entice and set straight to opening the box and pulling out the Side to Side dress.

With its bright, circular pops of color splashed across a black background, and a red belt to accentuate the waist, this cheery dress offers a fun addition to your SL wardrobe and won’t put even the slightest ding in your budget.  The Midnight Mania board does require you to join the Entice group, but it’s free to join, and there are a bunch of lucky boards and gifts just waiting for members to claim.  On our way out, Ripley befriended this adorable Corgie in a lobster outfit and I had to take a quick snapshot of the little guy.  Isn’t he cute?

Cute Corgie

In search of the perfect accessories, the pupster and I journeyed over to Cae, one of my favorite jewelry stores.  As we arrived, I noticed the glowing Gacha Guardian Rune Stone right away.  Cae has a free charm bracelet set out and you can try your luck on the Gacha board for a plethora of Trick or Treat charms for 75L a turn.  From an adorable pumpkin, a spooky ghost, a witch hat, a spider, and my favorite, the silver cat (well, my name is Kat :P), these charms all magically attach to the free bracelet with the included HUD.  You can opt to wear Cae’s bracelet as a simple chain, snap on a single charm, or add as many as you like.  Now, I have to admit, Gacha machines are my nemesis and Ripley’s eyes became a bit worried as I was determined to get…. that….cat….charm.  It didn’t take long, though, and I soon had a jingly charm bracelet to add a Halloween theme to my outfit.

Charmed

All that was left was a cute pair of shoes.  Ripley and I had read Astrid’s post here about the Spooktacular Goth Hunt over at Swank Events, and decided to check it out.  After a short time of searching, we discovered the black rose containing the free prize from Ghostyss, which is this gorgeous pair of Carrie heels for slink high feet.  I particularly like the way these sweet black shoes have a thin cord that wraps around your ankles and ties in an adorable bow on the back.  There are numerous black roses scattered around the Swank Events show room, in designer’s booths and cleverly hidden all around, so look everywhere and you will discover LOTS of prizes, all set for sale at 0L.  The hunt runs until October 31st.

Now, Ripley must have some Blood Hound coursing through his veins, because after we finished at Spooktacular, he was off and running toward another hunt, with me scrambling to keep up with his racing paws.  This time, he led me to LaBoheme for the Halloween Hunt, which is a 1L hunt that runs through November 2nd.  All you have to do is locate the glowing jack o’lantern cleverly concealed in the store and soon you’ll have two sets of nail polish for Slink, Omega and Maitreya.  I’m wearing the “Dark Passion” polish (this shade is one of the ten colors in the HUD) for this outfit, but in the hunt prize, you also get a spooky Catacomb polish as well).

A trip to Black Basalt Beach was a perfect way to end the day.  Ripley and I explored the lovely grounds, had fun playing fetch and followed some shy deer across a log suspended over a gully.  There are so many sights to see at this beautiful sim.  If you have free time and love to visit SL locations, I encourage you to check it out.  Until next Sunday, happy shopping, my friends!

She’s The One

She's The One
Hello there Fabulous Readers! Ripley and I are back in a special edition, mid-week post to share another Fabulous Find which we discovered on one of our SL journeys.  Before I get into the details of my outfit, I’d like to begin with this sweet collection of poses from One Creations.  A free gift for Fab Free group members, this four pack contains static poses perfect for snapping photos or just plain looking lovely!  These worked fantastically with my Maitreya mesh body and were just right for capturing the perfect picture.  To add the “Body Language” pack to your pose collection, all you need to do is join the Fab Free Group (and with ALL the lovely FREE gifts, group members have so many benefits!), then teleport over to One Creations and give the gift board a tap.  To join the Fab Free Group, (free to join), copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL Viewer, and click the group join link – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .

After work tonight, while I was walking my fashion-seeking canine, he caught that oh-so-familiar scent of a bargain.  As I followed my furry friend, I wondered what his nose was leading me toward, and I was pleasantly surprised when he sat himself down and stared up at this Plunge Neck Skater Dress from the Culco Boutique.  The soft drape of the skirt and shimmering color of the fabric combine to create an alluring, feminine dress that is sure to please.  I love the way the horizontal band in the center accentuates the waist.  The gift contains appliers for mesh bodies as well as fitted mesh for classic avatars.  Best of all, this dress is free to Teleport Hub Group members.  There are lots of gifts available to Teleport Hub Group members, so the 10L joining fee really pays off in the long run.

After slipping Ripley a doggy snack, (I had to reward his hard work!), we headed over to The Free Dove to search for the perfect accessories.  There, just inside the front entrance, I spied the Twisted Hoops earrings display from Earthstones, and Ripley wagged his tail in approval.  Calleja Fairey first introduced Fab Free to these glittering earrings in her post here.  The gold and pearl hues of these free baubles accentuate the shade of my frock.  It’s hard to see the delicate texture of these earrings in my pictures, but trust me, they are gorgeous!

Next, I scoured my inventory, seeking a necklace to coordinate with my hoops.  Out of 100,000+ items in my inventory (after 8 years in SL, things have gotten a little out of hand there), you would think I could find the perfect match, but alas, it was time for more shopping.  Big grin!! From The Free Dove, we hiked over to Cae and tried our luck at the Whimsy gacha machine.  For 75L, you can win a necklace or earrings in one of 10 shades of beads with a color-change HUD that allows you to choose from 3 metal types.  Rip must be my lucky charm, because on my first try, the machine rewarded me with this charming Whimsy Necklace in Champagne.  Before I got that glazed “gacha” look in my eye, Ripley gave a gentle tug on his leash and led me off to Luane’s World, one of his favorite SL locations, to romp and play.  While he chased dragonflies at the water’s edge, I snapped these photos to share with you.

I hope the rest of your week goes well, and look forward to chatting with you again soon on Sunday.  As always, happy shopping!
