Slipping into something comfortable…

Criss Cross

Slipping into something comfortable…

I stopped by 1 Hundred the other day and was pleasantly surprised at all the available gifts. I wanted to show them all to you! But in the end I finally decided on this free little black lingerie number that shows off all the curves and is aptly called “Curvy Bitch Undies”. It comes in system layers as well as universal omega appliers (I just love applier clothing) and is a great sexy little number. It is the current free gift under the Maitreya Gifts, Sales & News Group.

I did have to do some playing to get it work, but I did the playing so you won’t have to! At first I was a little frustrated, as I thought that the underwear band wasn’t working. Never fear! Apply the underwear as “underwear” then apply the underwear also as a “bra” again as “underwear”. Then put on the bra applier and apply it as a “clothing” top. Voila! Your lingerie will show up properly.

An added touch.

Swank is going on and has out some nice little gifts at some of the booths. Chop Zuey is gifting this sexy belly chain, which I paired with my lingerie. Aptly named “Sea Mist,” this belly chain comes in a sort of opalized finish, that is pretty and yet not overdone. It resizes to fit and you can adjust it to fit your hips. Just buy it for 0L at the Chop Zuey booth at Swank Events.

Sunrise

Spotlight_001

I stopped for coffee and was writing in my journal when the wind storm blew up off the ocean and disturbed my papers. I had to set everything down and gather it all up again. Thankfully there was plenty of stuff nearby (pots, candles, a plate of cinnamon buns) to act as paperweights… but I took a moment to enjoy the sunrise glowing on the horizon before snapping a picture to share my hunt finds with you.

Dressed for success.

I’m often inspired by locations and clothing in second life. The visuals give me pause and take my breath away. I stumbled across the Summer Diaries Hunt and found several beautiful items, but one of my favorites was this Lolita Micro Dress by Soul Designs. It comes with a color change hud that allows you to choose between 6 colors including gold (shown), teal, red, navy, purple, and black.

Sizes included:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A sweet ocean surprise…

I received a notecard from Chop Zuey yesterday, letting me know that the creator was participating in the Flawless Sim Seashell Hunt. For just 1L I could go to the Designer Showcase, hunt down the seashell there, and come away with some pretty jewelry. I wasted no time! In the picture you can see the matching necklace and earrings, but the set also comes with two beautiful anklets that go with the set as well!

Graveside Beauty

Graveside

I let my macabre show today and got a little Gothic. I visited the Oubliette Graveyard and lay down among the (black) rose petals between the gravestones (petals not included! They are part of my pose). However it was perfect for showing off this great Women Only Hunt gift from Oubliette.

Not just another swimsuit

This free “swimsuit” from Oubliette is not just another swimsuit… it’s a Gothic girls dream come true. It comes in black with a skeletal design on the body and could double as a body suit. Included is a free pair of Lennon round sunglasses and a black floppy straw hat (not shown) for keeping out that dreaded sun.

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Feya, Isis, & Venus

Looking Back…

It seems I have been thinking a lot about the past lately. Some good times, some bad, some too crazy to believe it really happened. And yes, I can remember when gas pumps were painted that ugly red rust color and when gas was 44 cents a gallon. And I do remember the summer of sixty- nine, just barely. Even though I’m looking back, I still plan on moving forward and making new memories, hopefully none as bizarre as a few I’ve had lately…

But if I’d only known…

Today I have a few gifts  that will cost you nothing to pick up. By joining the FREE group at Fe Style, you can get thKing 2e King69 White T-Shirt for FREE. The shirt comes in S-L and a also fitted size. This month’s FREE group gift at Prey is the Men’s Denim Shorts. These shorts come in classic sizes XS-XL.  The Prey group is also FREE to join. I’m also wearing the Black Mesh Sports Cap from Adriatic Line that I previously mentioned [HERE] and my go to TopGun Retro Glasses, a group gift at A&D Clothing. Today I am also wearing a a FREE gift, no group needed, from Chop ZueyThe 4 Star Generals Mens Bracelet in Platinum can be picked up in the middle of the store. (Don’t be confused with the group gift version that also contains a gold bracelet. ) The bracelet comes in two versions, the all platinum and the gold star platinum style. You can click on the photo to get a better look.

 

Until my next sporadic post…

Transparency

Transparency_001

“Despite its dark veins, the transparency of dragonfly’s wings assures me of a pure, innocent world” – Munia Khan

I wanted to go dancing… but some gowns make you feel beautiful enough to fly. This FabFree gift gown from MOoh! reminds me of a dragonfly’s wings… with the beautifully colored bodice, the dark fabric at the hips, and the transparent hem. It’s perfect for a spin around a romantic ballroom, and it’s free with your FabFree group tag.

Sizes included:

  • Standard Mesh Sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh Sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Belleza – Isis
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Transparency_002

A perfect pairing.

I paired my new dress with another FabFree group gift. This time I made a trip to Chop Zuey and picked up the free Joy Unmasked earrings that are set out for our Fabulous group members.

I did find that the earrings were a bit large for my taste, but the earrings included an easy to use resize script. I just touched the earrings and sized them down to where I wanted them, easy peasy, and I was ready to go. Like the dress from MOoh!, this gift is free too. And you’ll be ready for a night on the town!

A Touch of Lace

One Fine Day_001

Something lacy.

We’re well into March and the days of green and shamrocks, but I was visiting Graffitiwear and the subscriber gift really caught my eye. It is this pretty pink lacy dress that I just really had to have. And all you have to do is click the subscriber and this dress is yours free! I love that it is an applier dress (I do love applier clothing) and I really like the mesh skirt panel that adds a nice dimension to it.

What comes in the box:

  • System Layers for standard avatar bodies
  • Applier for TMP, Omega, Slink, and Wowmeh
  • Rigged mesh skirt panel in standard sizes XXS – L

One Fine Day_002

A little sparkle.

I also stopped by Chop Zuey just to see if there was anything new. There is a pretty “Heart Brillante'” gift out that fit with my new dress just perfectly. I picked up the necklace and ring both as the free group gift (the group is 350L to join but the gifts are always generous and plentiful). I love the sparkle and they resize easily too. There is a set of matching earrings out as well and those are free to all if you want to pick those up.

Someday, My Prince Will Come…

Sleeping Beauty

But why wait around when you can ride a unicorn instead?

With so much crazy going on in RL, I’ve been enjoying a little fantasy escape in my SL. And *{Junbug}* has a new group gift out that suited my mood perfectly. 🙂

The Sleeping Beauty dress is available for Maitreya mesh bodies only, but I’m sure you could probably fit it to other mesh bodies if you tried. There is a notecard in the folder explaining that the dress is a “corseted style,” meaning that the waist is meant to look “unnaturally small.” But if you feel that the waist is too small for your liking, you can use your torso sliders to put a little weight on… which is what I did.

And what does every princess need?

A tiara, of course! And I was happy to find this one for free at Chop Zuey (no group required). A resizer is included, so just touch the tiara to make it larger or smaller. As with all Chop Zuey products, the details are impeccable; I love the heart-shaped diamonds on each side of the center diamond.

I’m off now to look for some rainbows. ❤

A Vintage Stroll

Vintage_001

It’s not cold everywhere.

There are still parts of this world that have warm weather… and I decided to take a warmer weather stroll. I was missing flowers and sunshine amidst all the snow. I found a garden sim with roses, vintage bikes and vases, and took a walk in my brand new January gift from BYRNE. You’ll definitely want to pick this one up. The group is free to join and the gift is free too. You’ll get the jacket and the skirt (two separate pieces) and quality alphas to go with them.

Sizes Included:

  • The Jacket: standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • The Skirt: Fitmesh XS – XL, as well as a Maitreya fit

Vintage_002

A finishing touch.

Chop Zuey has generously set out a gift just for FabFree group members. Since the Fabulously Free in SL group is free to join, this gift is free as well, and it matched my new dress from BYRNE just perfectly. So I stopped by Chop Zuey to pick up the Love Knot Set. It includes the beautiful heart choker necklace shown above as well as a pair of matching earrings that are hidden in my hair. These are easily resizable to fit any avatar. You’ll find this gift where the other Chop Zuey gifts are.
