On the Fence

On the Fence

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Sunday evening!  Before our weekend ended, Ripley and I decided to pop back over to the Cart Sale at the Wash and spotted this casual blue striped top and black jeans outfit at the Artic Storm display.  I love the layered tank look (you can see a black shirt peeking out from behind the shoulder strap) and the cuffed jeans hugged all my curves.  The Joana outfit made me think of a lovely spring day, so the pupster and I headed over to Costa Bella to snap a photo in a field of wildflowers.  The package contained both fit mesh in a variety of sizes for the top and jeans, as well as versions for mesh bodies.  For just 10L, you will scoop up an entire outfit.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL for both top and jeans
  • Alpha layers for tank and jeans for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine (tank only)
  • TMP (tank only)

Here’s hoping you have a wonderful start to your work week.  Until next time, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

My Galentine

My Galentine

I was musing the other day that people can get pretty icky about Valentine’s Day.  I guess when you get down to the nitty gritty, and if you want to be cynical, it is a fairly commercial holiday.  BUT, why be cynical?  It’s winter, it’s cold, and we need something to cheer us up.  So I say, bring on the red and pink, slap on the hearts, and if you ain’t got a man, then celebrate your gals.  Bring on Galentine’s Day!

Carting Away my Heart

I found another AMAZING dress at The Wash Cart Sale!  The almost holographic colouring of this lovely little dress by The Little Bat is tugging at my heart strings, and not at my purse strings!  It’s 10L of gorgeousness in 4 fabulous colours.  I went with Sherbet, because I’m just so sweet ;).  This fatpack comes in sizes XXS – L with an Alpha Layer included.  The perfect dress for a date, with your sweetheart or your BFF.

Heart eyes all round, my Galentines!

What a way to start the day!

Good morning Fabulous Readers!  It’s a bright and shiny day today!  This morning I was awarded the Blue Moon Dress in Navy by Entice as a free gift as I had slapped the group midnight mania board last night before I logged, and lucky for me – it locked down.  This sweet lacy delicacy could be considered a dress, a shirt or even a nightie I suppose.  How ever you decide to wear it – it’s a keeper!  The Entice group is free to join and there are tons of other gifts to be had!

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

Cotton Candy Sweet N’ Low

Cotton Candy 1
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. I’m excited to share more of the fantastic gifts available at FaMeshed and the coveted TRUTH group gift for the month of November.  Since I have several things I want to tell you about, I’ll keep this part short and sweet. I hope you love these great gifts as much as I do!

TRUTH the Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth

Several days ago TRUTH sent out the group gift for November. Though it was a little late coming, the gift was well worth the wait. It’s also worth the one time join fee of 350 linden for the TRUTH VIP group. Each month a new group gift is sent out through the TRUTH VIP group. This long style is called Ginevra, and it is a fatpack. In addition to all the color huds, there are 2 versions of the hairstyle; One with the headband and one without. The gift also contains a style hud for both versions that lets you pick between 4 style variations, and 2 bang syles.  Additionally you can adjust for larger chest sizes. Needless to say, if you haven’t joined the TRUTH VIP group yet, you should!

Cotton Candy

Completely FaMeshed

Now, you may recall I showed the FaMeshed gift from Vinyl in my last post. Now I’ve picked 3 more to share with you. First, the top and matching pants are the FREE group gift at FaMeshed from COCO. I love the little details of this set, like the un-tucked side of the tank top.  You could also wear the top or pants separately.

Mesh Outfit Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Next up, the snowflake earrings by RealEvil Industries are gorgeous. You’ll find them FREE (just wear your FaMeshed tag) under the Christmas Tree at FaMeshed. There’s nothing about them I don’t like. They even have the added detail of looking like real earrings in the back. The little gold snowflakes with the diamond chip in the center are beautiful on. They are the sort of jewelry that can be worn with casual attire as well as formal.

Finally, I think the FREE necklace gift from Cae at FaMeshed is so cute for the holiday season. The gift includes a short and a long version of the same necklace. I wore both in the photo to show the difference in the lengths. The necklaces are sizable and include a hud for changing the metal of the jewelry, the color of the gemstone, and the wording on the little medallion. The medallion can say either “Naughty” or “Nice” I think I’m a bit of both, so I chose to wear one of each!

Here are the details, enjoy!

My Heart Will Go On

Right Here Waiting...

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Since Ripley and I had such good luck with our last hunt (you can see my post {HERE}), we decided to hit the trail again.  We came away with this strappy beauty, which is a Sexy Christmas Hunt prize from Waffles.  In a rich shade of crimson, my Flame Crepe gown hugged all my curves and fell to ground level where it flared gracefully at my feet.   I felt so sleek and elegant in this frock!  It features a back that dips low, as well as a dramatic neckline, yet keeps you covered in all the right places.  The prize package, which costs only 1 little Linden dollar, includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up this dress for yourself, journey over to Waffles, and search for the red phrase “sexy” somewhere in the store.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

As Luck Would Have It…

As Luck Would Have It

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post to share a stunning free skirt I picked up as a lucky board prize at .Lunaria.  The Kaelyn maxi skirt falls in a slender line from your hips to about mid-shin length, where it flares as it sweeps the ground for freedom of movement.  Ivory white in color (the windlight setting I used made it look greenish for some reason, but it is white), it features circular adornments at the waistline, which add visual interest.  I really love the sleek, sophisticated look this outfit evokes!  Kaelyn comes in sizes for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport to the shop, switch to the Lunaria group tag (it’s completely free to join), and cross your fingers.  I was lucky enough to scoop this baby up during my first few minutes of waiting.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in S and M (I don’t see an L in my folder, but that could be a glitch in unloading the package)
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

About the Pie…

So, to give you an update:  while Ripley snoozed the afternoon away today, I *was* successful in creating a pie.  I have to admit, though, it took two tries to get a crust that rolled out large enough for the pie plate.  It smelled so delicious as the oven worked its magic.  We will see tomorrow how it tastes.  I’m hoping my luck holds out for a flavorful pie as well as it did for all my lucky board prizes in SL!  Until my next post, Happy Thanksgiving to those who are celebrating, and happy shopping to all our Fabulous Readers!

True Colours

When I’m feeling playful, I always reach out for some bright colours to wear.  You really can’t beat a pastel hair colour, and some hot pink.  Luckily, these generous SL creators have got my back!  My sweet do’ was a gift at Hairology, and was previously blogged by Pru HERE.

Hot in Hot Pink

Safira has a few free group gifts out right now, and one of them is this bright and cheerful jumpsuit.  It comes in a shiny midnight blue as well, for the days when you’re feeling only slightly less exuberant.  The Safira group is free to join, and there are quite a few nice group gifts in the store.  It’s definitely worth the visit!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

The North Star

Cae has a birthday gift out right now to celebrate 5 years of pretty jewelry in Second Life.  The North Star bracelet features super cute silver stars that encircle your wrist, and a larger silver charm adorned with blue gems.  Very delicate!  The group is currently 100 Linden to join, and you can find the group gift in the notices section of the group profile.  I’ve included a closeup below so you can see the detailing.

Ok Fab Free – go light up the world with those bright colours!

Down the Valley Road

The Valley Road
Hello Fabulouses!  Have you been over to the event at 68 Main?  The pupster and I checked it out and scooped up some free gifties to share with our favorite readers.  In order to pick up both of these goodies for yourself, you need to be a member of the 68 Main ~ The Event ~ group, but it’s completely free to join.

Chiffon and Lace

My gorgeous Caprice Dress is a free gift from *Chiffon* that is available at 68 Main.  Featuring a lace trimmed, sleeveless bodice, and an optional chiffon flexi skirt attachment (not shown), this little number is perfect for a date night.   I love the subtle sheen of the fabric and the way the skirt falls loosely to the upper thighs.  The package includes versions for classic avatars as well as mesh avatars.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Walk On

Strappy Heels

Also a free gift at 68 Main, this time from Shoenique, my Chinablu Heels showcased my feet and coordinated with my frock like they were specifically made for it.  With delicate criss-cross straps, gleaming leather, and cute little bows in the back, this sexy pair of heels allow your pedicure to shine.  They come in one hue, but black is quite versatile, and I can see myself wearing them quite often (in fact, I gave you all a secret preview of them in my last post {HERE}.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Until next time, 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!
