Finally a Quiet Moment

A Quiet Moment

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m just sitting here, relishing the peace and tranquility at the Oh Deer sim.  I befriended this adorable tabby, but I’m not sure if he and the pupster will get along.  Speaking of Ripley, he and I found yet another great deal at The Cart Wash Sale this week.  Every time I go back, I discover something new to try.  Good thing for me the event continues on until November 1st!

Double Duty

Over at the Emerald Couture display, you can scoop up this cheery Fanni top for only 10L, which can be worn as a long shirt as I have done in my photo or as a dress.  I really like the flexibility with this top.  A plunging neckline adds a sexy touch.  With its bright crimson hue and scattered flowers,  Fanni has an almost Oriental flair, so I slipped on the Aran Jewelry set from Dressed by Lexi.  For only 10L, you get the necklace and a coordinating pair of earrings.   The silver pendant was the perfect accessory!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • eBody
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

Finishing the Look

Since autumn temperatures have rolled in, I opted to pull on a pair of black leggings which also came from the Emerald Couture display.  My EC Satin Leggings hugged my curves and contrasted beautifully with the red color of my top.  These bottoms will work well with a variety of other outfits, so as soon as I saw the price of only 10L, I quickly added them to my inventory.  With fits for many mesh avatars, you’re sure to find an option that works for you.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass (for flat and high feet)
  • Isis
  • Maitreya (for flat and high feet)
  • Physique (for flat and high feet)
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • eBody
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Nice Day for a White Wedding

White Wedding

I’m Getting Married

Lol, just kidding! (/me giggles) XD

When I saw this gorgeous dress — the latest group gift from Dressed by Lexi — I thought it would be really lovely as a wedding gown, so I decided to style it in that way.

The top comes as an Omega applier (which I used on my Maitreya mesh body with an Omega kit), but there is also a system layer for classic avatars. There is a significant amount of skin showing through the lace, making this top extra sexy. 😉

The skirt is sized for Belleza, eBody, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies, as well as standard mesh S-XL with an alpha layer. The lace at the bottom is added in two flexi attachments, but you could always leave those off for a sleeker look.

My pose is a gift from An Lar Poses for the Tres Chic 2nd Anniversary. Three poses with mirrors are included in the set. You have until June 5th to pick up all the fabulous gifts at this round!

Now Go Do That Voodoo, That You Do So Well!

whcdbl voodoo 1_001

The best way to get a feel for a city is by moonlight. During the hustle of the day, most cities take on a similar hum with the activity of commerce. It is a din that drowns out all else. With the quiet of nightfall, you can feel the beating of each city’s unique heart. New Orleans, steeped in dark magical power, is one of my favorite cities (okay, and maybe it’s round-the-clock partying has something to do with that!).

What better place to be a Voodoo King than the city of New Orleans? Dressed By Lexi has long been a favorite store of some of the women I know. Honestly, I hadn’t been to the store lately so when a friend told me I HAD to check it out, I jumped at the chance to visit. This month, Dressed By Lexi has been putting Halloween costumes on sale for 55L every week! This week, I am wearing the Mesh Voodoo King costume. It consists of two main pieces and a bunch of goodies tossed in to sweeten the deal. The black trousers come in seven sizes and are tattered where the cuffs would be. The Voodoo King Vest comes in five sizes and, while also dark, is rich in color and pattern making it quite fetching. That wide range of sizes does a great job of taking care of any fit issues. The costume doesn’t end there though; it includes some fun goodies too! The Voodoo King Staff and the face paint mask comprise an extremely scary looking pair of accessories. Add to them the necklace, top hat, and sandals (for regular avy feet) and you get a lot for the money! I saved the best detail for last: Dressed By Lexi makes their costumes for couples! So, if you are looking to go out for a romantic date wearing matching Halloween costumes, they have you covered. In fact, they are so thoughtful, the outfits are transfer enabled!

Hurry over to Dressed By Lexi to pick up the Voodoo King today, because the 55L Thursdays Sale items change every week. Of course, that’s actually good news if you collect great costumes like I do. I, for one, have a date to go dancing with my beautiful editor Andi wearing last week’s sale costumes: Tarzan and Jane. I can think of no better way to celebrate the continuing of Fab Free than to celebrate with someone who has tirelessly given her time to make me seem smarter than I really am. Have fun everyone and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

We are so thankful to everyone who has supported FabFree through the years.. to all the amazing designers and bloggers past and present who have been along for the ride and to all the wonderful readers and group members who keep the chat buzzing in world. You are all stars!

To celebrate, there is a Cupcake Hunt going on at the FabFree Headquarters! 50 cupcakes for you to find, filled with goodies for you to enjoy that have been donated by our generous designers. Each cupcake is FREE to purchase and they are scattered all around the Headquarters and outside in the garden. So be sure to look high and low, check every nook and cranny and ledge! Im sure those mischievous gnomes might be trying eat some of them so grab them while you can! Don’t forget to check out the Birthday Hunt page where you can find out more details about the hunt, aswell as a list of designers and pictures of the prizes you can find, including links to posts where we have blogged about them!

There are really great gifts in the hunt and in this post I am going to be showing you a few of them! My Dress is the hunt prize from Trinite and is a gorgeous deep red slinky number that has a deep cut cowl neck line and a low back. It is Fitmesh which means it will adapt to your body shape rather than you having to adapt your shape to fit the dress.  In the next picture you can see a better view of the front and just how sexy it is.

My Skin is the hunt prize from Lumae and is the Odette Skin in a really lipsmacking make up especially for the event called Birthday Kiss! I am sure there will be very few who will be able to resist a smooch from you while wearing this! It comes in two tones. I am wearing Tone 4 – Honey but there is also a darker tone called Tone 6 – Cookie which is equally as beautiful! They also come with freckle versions! If you are looking for a yummy cake for your own celebrations then you can pick up the “I Love You” cake by Aphrodite as their hunt prize.. it is delicious as well! Yum!

Untitled

The beautiful and sparkly September Birthday Sapphire ring is the hunt prize by Dressed By Lexi and is quite a stunning rock! The depth of blue is really captivating. My adorable nails are the Birthday Bow Nails that are the hunt prize by Dirty Little Secret and come with a HUD with several different colours on. I went for the red to match my dress! Below is a picture of the HUD so you can see the other colours available.

And as a bonus little tip.. The shoes I am wearing in the first picture are the Allure Shoes by REIGN and although are not part of the hunt, they are currently on offer as part of the Saturday Sale.. now, I am aware it is Sunday! Soooo… I don’t know how much longer these will be on sale so get over there quickly to be able to grab these while they are only L$75 a pair!

Caresia’s Photo Challenge Entry #3 – Then and Now

BlogPost_143A

Well, in reviewing my pictures from over the years I came to the happy conclusion that the longer you spend in SL, the better you look.  At least to yourself.  I started Second Life 6 years ago on my first avatar and I was going to use the picture from my very first day…. and then I decided I would just show you Care’s first day 3 1/2 years ago and what she looks like today.

BlogPost_143B

May I say that Second Life is ahead of its time…  *laughs*  I can’t wait to see everyone’s Then and Now pictures.

Found a few freebies to show you … I love this dress that Dressed By Lexi is giving away as their January Group Gift.  I got my earrings from D.D.M. DESIGNS and my Apple May Designs bow off the Marketplace.  I also ran over to The Dressing Room Fusion and found my Al Vulo skin and M I N A  hair. I also hit up the KUSTOM9 event and picked up a pose pack as well as their beautiful S0NG eyes. Check out all the Credits and Links below ❤

Finding that quiet place…

BlogPost_129A

Good Morning Fabulous Ones.

Wow, it’s been an intense couple days for this woman.  Lots of food, family and lots of work work work.  *laughs* I know quite a few of you can relate.  With the holiday season coming up, we all tend to be a bit on the busy side.  I hope you find a moment to close your eyes and find your quiet moments…. but while you are here…. Check out the new advent gift pose by Picture This.  They are giving away a pose a day for the next 24 days as Advent gifts.  The first one went out at Midnight and I ran over to grab it so I could show you.  I’ve just started working on the Candy Cane 5 Gridwide Hunt & Gacha Tour by KastleRock Hunts.  I found this great dress over at Dressed By Lexi.  I also picked up a few freebies/lowbies on the Marketplace… Check out the Links & Credits below…
