Fall Musings

Coming Soon

Can I Go Back?

Ah, September… the month of new beginnings and a new school year is almost upon us. It’s the first day back to school over here where I live! Sometimes I wish I could just go back to school and re-live my college years. Sure, school sucks sometimes and it’s a lot of hard work… but I loved walking around the University quad with a coffee in hand, venturing off to my next lecture and absorbing my mind in the world of higher education. In all honesty, I didn’t have many responsibilities back then besides dedicating myself to learning more about the world. I just loved learning, reading, and discussing ideas, so being in College/University was one of the best times in my life!

…Fast Forward to November

I am an odd one for wanting to go back to school, huh? Well, I am also a bit strange when it comes to my opinions about the seasons of the year. Despite loving the summer months and the time I get off every year, I have a stronger fondness for the Fall. Once September starts, everything becomes a blur with how crazy school and work always becomes! I am sure you can relate. However, I just love fall; it always makes me feel warm inside. Bring on pumpkin season! I am definitely one of those people who waits for pumpkin-spice lattes and Halloween in August. This sweater and skirt outfit I have on in the photo below reminds me of the month of November because it has poppies on it and it looks warm and comfy. This is my type of clothing style! I always prefer fall and winter clothes in both RL and SL, and I simply love this outfit for its fall vibes.

Coming Soon

Get to the point, Caroline!

Well, this has been a fun and poetic exploration of my views about life, higher learning, and the seasons. Now I have two amazing outfits, poses and shoes to show you in my post today, so let’s look at what I found to bring in the fall season!

Two Lovely Limited-Time Outfits

Ari-Pari is the clothing store I am featuring today, and they are currently in the middle of renovating their store. You will find the two gifts shown in my post today at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location, which is right HERE. Ariana was so kind that she left out a group gift and a hunt prize from last August a wee bit longer for us, so that no one would miss out. The two lovely outfits shown in my post today are available for a limited period of time at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location, a skybox that will be open until mid-September. They are only available for another week or two, so I suggest everyone go now to get them before these great gifts disappear for good.

First, the school uniform shown in the first picture is a 1L promo at the Ari- Pari Temporary Location.  The outfit includes a hud with 10 colour options to change the colour of the skirt and necktie. The base of this school uniform outfit is white. This dollarbie promo was a hunt prize for last month’s Back to School Hunt (which has now ended), but Ari-Pari is keeping this little gem out to grab for a couple more weeks into September due to the store closure in August. Now it only costs 1L and no hunting is required- just look for the PROMO sign and pay the vendor 1L to get the outfit for cheap!

Sizes Included (School Uniform)

  • Lara
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass

Secondly, the pretty poppy-patterned sweater and black skirt with a belt shown in the second photo is the August group gift for group members of the Ari-Pari group. This gift is available for a limited-time. Go get it at the Ari-Pari Temporary Location while it’s still available! Note that there is a group join fee of 25L, but new limited-time monthly group gifts are regularly released for Ari-Pari group members. This outfit includes a colour-change hud for the sweater and the belt, which you can change to 4 different colour and pattern options. The black skirt can be worn with gold or silver metal belt options. 

Sizes Included (Poppy Outfit)

  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Hourglass

The Ari-Pari Temporary Location will be open until mid- September, and I expect these gifts will no longer be available after it closes so go ASAP to get these limited-time promos and gifts! There will be even more group gifts and goodies coming out later when the main store re-opens after renovations, so stay tuned for the upcoming store re-opening!

Two 5L deals from Pacagaia

I have a few more fab deals to share that make up the rest of my look in my welcome-to-fall post today.

  • The poses, coffee, and cell phone shown in both photos come from a great set of bento poses, which costs only 5L from Pacagaia on the Marketplace.
  • The great shoes are another item that only costs 5L from Pacagaia on the Marketplace. These shoes fit Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet. These are a full fatpack, which includes a hud to change the colours of the shoe (the top and the base) to 25 different textures. They are fantastic! Shout out to FabFree reader Aurora for showing me these – I just love ’em. 🙂

Enjoy, FabFree!

Just because I was mean, doesn’t mean I can’t look good!

Carnival1

Oh hai there!! I was a pretty mean daughter today. In RL, my Mom works on Saturdays, where as I don’t…yayy. So what does any good daughter do in that kind of situation? They take a selfie of themselves having fun to send to their hard-working Mother…of course!

Carnival5

EDIT: I didn’t realize that this round of the OMG Room ended today..I’m so sorry guys, but the items I have listed from there are no longer out. *forehead smack* DOH! Don’t I feel like a wiener 😛

Lucky for me, I had just picked up this super cute pack of poses with a cellphone from BelleBody at the current round of The OMG Room event, and it had the perfect ‘selfie’ pose. The Kate pose pack comes with 6 different poses, and is a great deal at only L$55. It also comes with 6 corresponding cell phones that have 1 of each of the poses built-in, as well as an extra phone with no pose. So you can either just attach one of the phones, and you will be posed automatically, or you can use the pose on its own if you have some other phone of your own that you would like to use.

While at The OMG Room, I picked up a few of the new gifties that they have towards the back of the room. The first being this great girly/grungy/rocker type outfit from Rasch Creations, which is only L$5. It is the Ginger outfit, in Brown, and it comes with the shirt, skirt, belt, and earrings that I am wearing, as well as bracelets and boots, which I am not. The shirt, skirt and belt are mesh and come in sizes XXS-L The detailing on all the pieces is just awesome, and I love that almost everything has studs on it 😛

Carnival4

Another of the gifts I grabbed was the Blinded Kawaii Stars SLink hand tattoo. So cute!!! A Kawaii star parachuting…seriously…love this! Oh, and it’s free, so how could I say no.

The last thing I grabbed at The OMG Room was the dangerous spike ring set from the Emporium gacha. It is L$40 per play, and other than the fact that I may just poke my eyes out with the spikes, it works great with this outfit. I was gunning for the cute mustache ring set, the rare prize, but I was not lucky enough to get it. Oh well.

Getting away from the OMG Room stuff, is the KOSH Multiplex necklace V2. You can find this lovely, texture change necklace on the Marketplace for only L$1. There are actually 2 versions available. The one I am wearing, which has the silver tag with changeable letters on it, how lucky was I that ‘CALLE’ fit perfectly :P, and a no-tag version. They are for sale separately though, just a forewarning. There is also a matching bracelet, which has been shown many times here on FabFree by several of our bloggers, it is a favourite for sure. Oh, and these are unisex, so all you guys out there, go ahead and get them if you like them!

OK, lastly, but not leastly (it is too a word…I’m sure), I must show you my shoes! I was putting this look together last night actually, with my Mom, and I was all set to wear the boots that came with the Rasch outfit, as they were awesome, but my Mom had other ideas. She reminded me of the Allure Destiny Strap Stiletto’s for SLink High feet that we had picked up as free group gift a little while ago. They work so well with my look. Great idea Mom 🙂 There are actually 2 pairs for you to grab there at Allure, I am wearing the Drunk Grunge pair, but the other ones are just as nice. You do have to join the group to grab these, but as it has been mentioned before on FabFree, a few times, there are TONS of group gifts in store., and the group is free to join, so it is a win-win right there.

Wow….sometimes when I put a post together, there are only a few items I am showing all of you, but other times, it’s like the stars align and my whole look has to be talked about. LOL. I hope you made it through this long post of mine, and enjoyed it. Now, I better go call my Mom and see if she is mad at me. Until next time, TTFN!!!
