Gaps in the wardrobe.

Gaps? But Sheidey what are you talking about? Some Second Life inventories are possibly related to literal black holes! In all seriousness, though I took a good long look at the theoretical mass (and mess!) that is my inventory and realized that I didn’t have very many options when it came to pants. Needing a quick fix and seeing as throwing away my dresses and skirts were out of the question, I decided to hit some sales. In my previous post {HERE} I mentioned a store called Wertina and not only do they sell some great shoes, but they also have a good variety of clothing items in stock as well. Pictured is the Biker pants in black that are simply a study in fitted leather and look great at any angle. The leather studs that go down on either side of the pants are a great feature just like the distressed leather detailing around the knees. The Biker pants come in five standard mesh sizes (XS-L) with an alpha layer included and cost just 15L because of the closing down sale that Wertina is holding. Pop down to the store to browse! With everything marked down to 5L-35L, you might just find something to fill up the gaps in your wardrobe too.  The closing sale at Wertina ends on the 31st of December.

More metallic goodness!

Now that I have a perfect pair of pants, I was determined to find some fitting footwear for it. Luckily enough Enertia is offering up the Kehlani heels as a free group gift and the metallic sheen to the straps and body of these shoes was exactly what I was looking for. Personally, I feel that the edgy style of these heels paired off nicely with the outfit, but if metallics aren’t your cup of tea there’s also a Hud included in the gift package with five other color options. What’s more, you’ll be getting sizing for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet as well. Add the Kehalni heels into your shoe collection today by joining the Toxxic Designs Studios group for free.

It’s a hair affair!

Hairology has been a hot topic here with the ladies of FabFree and rightly so as the 1st Anniversary of the event is filled with awesome goodies from top quality designers. I found the final touch to my outfit there in the form of a dollarbie hair gift from Vanity Hair. Buns have such a bad rep for being uptight but this beautifully textured updo is simply elegant. Natural colors isn’t something that I’d usually go for when hairstyles are concerned but this gift and it’s Hud that contains four rich tones to choose from certainly inspired me to give the ‘naturals’ a chance. While there is no alpha layer provided, there’s a nifty resizer in the hud which makes fitting hassle free and the hairdo itself has copy permissions enabled so that you can make duplicates for backup. This round of Hairology closes at the end of the month so don’t miss out!

 In plain sight.

While slapping the Midnight Mania boards at WoW Skins the other day I ran into (literally, thanks lag) this free gift in the games room. This very generous gift contains the classic Soraya skin in the tan tone with both cleavage/no cleavage options as well as appliers for Phat Azz, Slink Hands and Feet, Ghetto Booty and Lolas Tango. You’ll also receive a brow base and shape but my favorite aspect of this skin aside from the fact that it’s totally free are the two freckles tattoo layer that comes included in the package as well. My very first skin in SL was freckled as well so it was good to come back to the look after a while away.

Speaking of going back to old looks, I’ve gone back to blue-grey eyes as well after experimenting with different colored peepers. The aptly named Athena eyes are a free gift from Mesange and not only will you be receiving system eyes but mesh ones as well with Genesis and Omega Huds. I feel wiser already for snapping up this gift and maybe I’ll be sticking to this pair for a while.

And that’s a wrap. I’d like to wish a happy and safe Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it. Have fun out there dear readers. Till next time!

Into the wide blue yonder

Into the wide blue yonder

Another Saturday rolls around again!

Hello, dear readers and welcome to another Saturday Edition. This week’s post is coming to you just a little late this week and for that, I apologize.  Got to empathize with Love as I too am feeling under the weather as of late but I’m battling through the grogginess to bring to you the latest Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Snowpaws. You can have a quick look at all the goodies donated by our Fabulous Designers here and as always, to join the group just copy and paste the following link into local chat in your Sl viewer secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about and click on it. The group is free to join.

Something blue to combat the blues.

The first time I saw the ad for the Paige dress it really brought a smile to my face. While there are those who claim that mesh clothing can sometimes look flat, this simple strappy number is anything but. The beautiful flowing lines of the skirt add an air of casual elegance to the Paige dress and if you’re looking to experiment with simple color blocking then this is the outfit for you. The underskirt is a lighter blue than the rest of the dress’ deeper shade and adds to its uniqueness without being overpowering. The Paige dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and you’ll also be receiving a great alpha layer to stop any bits from sticking out. All you need to do to add the Paige dress to your virtual wardrobe is to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, click on the board and the dress is yours for free. After you’re done, take a look at the games room at Snowpaws as there are tons of Midnight Mania boards, Mini Manias, Lucky Letters for you to participate in plus freebies! For a visual, take a look at Love’s post {HERE} on Fab Designer Snowpaws.

Get lured.

If you haven’t stopped by the latest round of The Gacha Garden, now would be a good time to do a little exploring. I was enchanted by both the whimsical build and the awesome and varied gacha machines that are there to be played. Best yet some merchants have put out free gifts to lure you down the path and deeper into the garden. One of these gifts is the Slim Chance hair by Analog Dog. I’m in love with the messy up-do and wild effortless curls. You will also receive an extensive Hud in the gift package that will enable you to choose from different fantasy tones as well as the ombre fades and tints. To get the Slim Chance hairstyle and other free gifts at The Gacha Garden simply join the Gimme Gacha group (free group join) and wear your tag proudly as you explore the event. This round of The Gacha Garden ends on the 30th of this month.

To say goodbye.

It’s always a little sad when I discover stores that are just about to close. Maybe I’m just being silly but I always get a sense that I’m a little late to the party (lol). Wertina is one such store and their clothing items and shoes are priced between 5-35L. I picked up these cute Keira heels (only for Slink High feet) for just 10L and the shoe addict in me is just itching to get more. Drop by Wertina before the 31st of December as that’s when their doors will close.

Into the wide blue yonder

Make me over.

I’ve never really explored with makeup layers before but when I saw that Alaskametro was having a 50% off sale for their pre-fall cosmetics line, I thought it’d be a good time to start. I learned about this merchant through the FabFree website months ago and now that I’ve finally gotten around to trying their makeup, I’m really glad that I did. There were so many choices of eyeshadows and lipsticks/glosses that I didn’t know where to start but luckily there were wearable testers provided to guide me in my purchases. In the end, I finally settled on the Creme Duo eyeshadow and Matte Dark lipstick respectively. Each pack has six different color variations as well as appliers for TMP, Slink Visage, Lelutka, Omega, and Loudmouth. With the popularity of mesh heads in the market, I’m glad that there’s a merchant that includes tattoo layers as well for classic avatars. The sale at Alaskametro is ending at the end of November.

And that’s a wrap! Stay safe and healthy this weekend fabulous readers!

Nerdy Girl in-world Closing Sale

Super Heroes

It’s hard to see much beloved stores close their doors in Second Life… and Nerdy Girl has announced that she will be moving the in-world store to the Marketplace to pursue new adventures after July 12th. In the meantime, as a bit of a farewell gift to all the loyal customers who love nerdology, the in-world store is having a last hoorah and closing sale before it moves to the marketplace… a bonus for all of us loyal shoppers🙂

Nerdy Girl has put out all the old gifts for one thing, so if you are a group member, stop by and pick up any you missed (the join fee is only 25L if you are not already a member, and with all the goodies, it’s worth joining).

In addition, all store merchandise is priced at 25L or lower, excluding gachas. In salute to the Nerdy ways, Loki and I decided to go as Nerd Heroes. I am not convinced that he got it quite right, but then he thinks I didn’t do it right either… we agreed to disagree, since Rainbow Brite is my favorite, and he said Superman was super.

My rainbow bright costume includes the mesh skirt, applier top and leggings, and the bow (which comes in a left, center, or right fit). For 25L, it’s quite a deal!

Loki’s mesh hoodie in all the standard sizes is quite a find indeed, as there is a texture change hud included. The hud changes the t-shirt and hoodie separately, for lots of nerd fun… hero symbols on the shirt and hoodie all separate for whatever hero you want to be that day. For 25L, there’s a hero in every guy just waiting to come out!

BOOM – Closing Sale

BOOM 1

It’s with a note of sadness that I write this post. I found out yesterday that BOOM will be closing their doors, possibly as soon as tomorrow. I can still recall BOOM being one of the first stores I genuinely loved to shop at. For me, and I’m sure for many others, there is a lot of nostalgia around a brand like BOOM that has been part of Second Life for so long. According to the notice sent out by the designer, the store will remain open with all items at 75% off until the end of the month. I didn’t notice much anything (other than fat packs) that was priced at more than 75 lindens. So don’t wait, stop by BOOM and get some amazing bargains. This will be your last chance to own those items you’ve been eyeing but haven’t bought yet. If you’re new to BOOM, you’ll find everything from accessories to formal gowns, and a few select men’s items. I definitely picked up a few things for myself. Here’s a little of what I found.

Hair – Magika [03] Mint

Skin – Lumae – Adore – Darkling

Head – Lelutka – Aria

Sweater Dress – *BOOM* Oslo Baggy Sweater Dress Coal – 75L

Wings – *BOOM* Aranel’s Wings (v2) pitch – 57L

Bag – *BOOM* Long Haul Messenger Bag – But a Scratch – 69L

Body – Maitreya – Lara

Boots – REIGN.- Not Your Momma’s Knit Boots

Goods New / Bad News – You Decide!

Snapshot_006I have some news for you today that is kinda good, and kinda bad:/.

I adore simple / clean fashion and have always been a fan of the designs that come from Aushka & Co.!  Well.. the other day I received a notice letting me know that due to limited time, Aida will no longer be designing under the Aushka & Co. brand and will be focussing her time now on her new brand = Breathe.  With that, many a design in her Aushka & Co. shop will be retired to marketplace (full price) on the 13th of September.  The good news is that until then you can pick up anything in the shop for 50 or 75L like the very pretty vintage dress I am wearing today (75L).A&CO_Closing Sale She also has several group gifts that you can pick up after you join their free inworld group as well as dollarbies too.  Most of these have been blogged on FabFree already, but I wanted you to see that they are all available at this moment if you missed any!Snapshot_007

e! Eclectic Apparel Closing Sale

Snapshot_002
Good morning Fabulouses. I am afraid I have some sad news.  Eclectic Wingtips of e! Eclectic Apparel has decided it’s time to close down the inworld shop as RL has become busier.  She sent out a notice yesterday stating that the marketplace store will remain open, so thankfully we will still be able to purchase her amazing mesh creations!  With this news, she has announced that there is a huge sale instore for the next few weeks in which everything is just 75L.

I am a big fan of e! designs, and keep several in my inventory to wear even when I am not blogging.  I imagine I will be making a few trips to the sale before it’s over!  Today I am wearing the Georgina Dress in the shade of Latte, which is available as mentioned above for just 75L.

I have accessorized my dress with some awesome Pure Poison finds.  My Rabbit Clutch can be found at this round of Fashion Limited for 150L, and last I checked there were only 12 black left for purchase.  The newly released Loly Slink Add-on Sandals are available at a group discount of 75L for the black pair (other colours available at 150L each)!  My Bow Tie Swirls Necklace is a brand new group gift that Pure Poison has added to their GIANT gift section.  (still free to join)!!

Chandelle Closing Sale & Photo Challenge #2

Snapshot_004

Chandelle has been featured here on Fabfree several times and is known for their unique designs and generous gifts! It is with a heavy heart that I share news with you that they will soon be closing their virtual doors.  With that bit of sad news, I bring you some good too.  They are closing out with a big sale.  Most items are priced between 0-50L!  There is a whole room full of freebies / dollarbies and group gifts are still available as well.  Make sure you head down there and check out what they have to offer before it’s too late!

This photo is also doubling as my #2 Photo Challenge entry because all I really wished for this year was to stay home and have a quiet holiday season, and kick my feet up on the sofa!  Normally during the holidays my house is either filled with family, or empty because we are filling up someone else’s house for Christmas, but this year it was a very quiet, at home treat!  I have been eating cookies and blogging and catching up on my Netflix faves.  Currently “Hart of Dixie” is the marathon I am in.  What a cute show!  There is still time to participate in the second FabFree Photo Challenge.  We are accepting entries until December 31st.  CLICK HERE for more information!
