Calle’s FabFree Photo Submission – August “Aloha”

While the lovely Tiana has been doing an awesome job showing off many of the goodies you can get from the Aloha Fair, I thought I would show you a few of the gacha items you can get from the fair. Also, how convenient is it that this months photo challenge of Hawaiian Luau is perfectly timed for the fair. Hmm…do you think it was planned that way? 😉

My first gacha prize is this gorgeous, long mesh dress from ArisAris. I was lucky, and on my first shot I got the Haway2 LongDress Rare, I just love the red colour in the leaf pattern. This is a mesh dress that comes in the standard sizes, and it fits like a dream! The ArisAris gacha is only L$50 a play, and all the patterns are lovely, so I would have been happy no matter which one I won.

Any female heading to a luau must have a flower behind her ear. Did you know that you are telling everyone if you are single or taken depending on which ear you put the flower behind? If you wear a flower behind your left ear, it means you are married, taken, have a significant other, or maybe you just don’t want anyone bothering you! If you wear a flower behind your right ear, it means you are single, available, and approachable. Now, I forgot which ear was which when taking my pictures…mine should be on the right side, doh! Either way though, my pretty pink hibiscus flowers are another gacha win, this time from Dew. This gacha is only L$30 a play, and they are so real looking, they will complete any Hawaiian look.

The only issue I have with long mesh dresses, you have trouble seeing the shoes, and I had to show you the ones I got from the Bliensen + MaiTai gacha. Upon hiking up my dress a little, I took a great close-up so you can see the fine details in the Ulua Sandals, red/brown starfish edition. Shhhh…they do not fit within the L$75 and under guidelines we follow, as they are L$77 a play, but I couldn’t help but show them to you, I’m sure you understand 🙂

luau1

One last thing before I go. I headed to the ALOHA HAWAII sim to take my pictures, and in wandering around, I found an area that looks like old rock ruins. There is a little box there, asking if you want to dance. If you click it and take a HUD, you can go anywhere on the Island and dance whenever you want (although, it will only work on the island, as I found out). In the World dance section, if you scroll a few pages, you will find a bunch of hula dances, specifically the ‘hula A’ dances. As you can see, I had a lot of fun dancing in my luau outfit. If I had a program to record myself, I would have taken a video and posted it for you all to see. Instead, I settled on several shots to give you an idea of the dance moves. Seriously, I had a blast.

Alright Fabbie’s, I hope you have enjoyed my submission for the FabFree Photo Challenge, I can’t wait to see what you all come up with in response 🙂 In honour of the theme, I will leave you with a Hawaiian goodbye. A hui kaua, malama pono. Which means ‘Until we meet again, take care, be right.’

Do You Want To Go To Hawaii? – Aloha Fair pt 1

The Aloha Fair has started and is a celebration of all that is summer and sunshine! It runs until August 11th so there is plenty of time to come and soak up the tropical atmosphere and snap up some great bargains and exclusive items!

You can also find a whole host of freebies and dollarbies as well as two gacha areas and bazaar areas where there are huge discounts on amazing items! In the next series of posts from myself, I will be showing you the freebies and dollarbies you can find at the event. To find these, you are looking for a brightly coloured surfboard that will be either inside or propped outside each store.

I have included LM’s to each individual booth, but it is landing point locked at the event so you will land at the main landing point. Hopefully each LM below will show a red beacon on your map so you can find the item by following that!

Aloha

For a tropical splash of colour, you can’t go wrong with the Niokolo Maxi Dress by ArisAris and I can carry all the things I need for my day on the beach with the Aloha Tote Bag by DEW. Eye protection from the summer sun is also a must so the Black Shore Glasses by HollyHood are stylish and perfect for the job! My black slingbacks by Snob are probably not the best things to walk in the sand with but for wandering along the promenade they are great!

Aloha

The gorgeous Alana skin is by Poudre and comes in several different tones with two cleavage options. I will be showing more of these tones during the next few posts! I love wearing flowers in my hair, so the beautiful Hibiscus hair accessory by Delirium Style adds the perfect finishing touch!

Sail Away With Me To Another World

Its the end to another week and the weekend is on the horizon. How are you going to spend the next couple of days? Im hoping to go down to the beach for a little wander along the shores and maybe even to dip a toe or two into the water!

If you are doing something special this weekend, then maybe these three looks will help take you through the day into night!

The first is the Salmon Macreme Dress which is a Group Gift by Graffitiwear. This is partial mesh, meaning that the main body of the dress is system layers but the skirt is mesh. It also comes with an applier HUD which includes appliers for WowMeh, Phat Azz, Lola, Ghetto Booty and Brazilia. The group is free to join!

Next, if you are looking for something bright and bold then the group gift dress by Dew could be just what you are after. The zesty colours certainly make a statement in the summer sun and the side slit gives it an extra sexy little edge. Again the group is free to join!

Finally, I couldnt resist showing you this adorable crop top and high waisted skirt from Wertina as I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it when visiting the Cosmopolitan Sales Room. Its not free but both pieces are for sale for a discounted price which makes it tempting to add to your summer collection!

All of the shoes in this post can also be found at the Cosmopolitan Sales Room and they are fast becoming my new favourites! They are made by VG Shoes and are available in a few other colour options besides the ones I am showing here.

Just “DEW” It!

Snapshot_009

I am not sure who’s dog this is, but I met this handsome little guy as I was taking a walk on the OrsiniSun sim.  He looks all kinds of sweet, but was causing all kinds of trouble –  knocking over buckets, chasing the cats and doing that “I’m a Hound Dog ARROOO OOOoOOooo” thing.  It’s probably Serena’s maniac dog…   She has a bazillion of them.   I’m just glad it was just apples I tripped over today.  (reference here)

SERENA!  COME GET YOUR DOG!

Ok, onto the free stuff 😉  The dog may be free – I’m pretty sure it’s owner is all kinds of trying to give it away lol, but you are on your own with that one!

Today I am featuring a couple of group gifts I found at “DEW”.  When you join the free inworld group you can pick up ten group gifts or slap the two lucky boards there. The Marine Coat is one of the group gifts available and it’s just right for this time of  year – although not mesh, it’s made well and sits on my avatar nicely.  The Coquet Bag is also available as a group gift.

Supporting The SPCA of Navarra 5L At A Time

Snapshot_002Hey Hey Fabulouses!  It’s time for me to start playing catch up 😉  I have been itching to get online and show you some things!  Today I took a trip down to The Autumn Market Fair, which is an event with over 40 stores participating and it benefits such a wonderful cause!   Each designer is displaying:

✯ 1 NEW DESIGN: 20%-100% DONATION TO SPCA OF NAVARRA
✯ 5L$ GIFT (100% DONATION)
✯ MORE GREAT STUFF

I managed to pick up several of the 5L items today and felt good about it with 100% of the donations going to the SPCA of Navarra to help abandoned and suffering animals.  I’ll probably have more of the event to show you soon, but today, I am wearing the Stunning Special Edition Eyes from I.D (mesh and non mesh versions), the A&C Sweet-Baby Lace Top, and the DEW Houndstooth Flats which were all 5L each at the AMF.

My long knotted hair is the latest group gift at (red) Mint (free to join!), and my skin is also a free gift called Aria/Pale which I have previously shown, but is still available at Lara Hurley in case you missed it (also free to join)!

I also picked up this fun Neko Pose Set for 5L on the PSYCHO.Bits display at the AMF that includes 5 static poses and also a pose stand.
