There is Magic in the Air


There's Magic in the Air

There’s magic in the air this time of year. It’s when I feel most in my element. Having someone to share it with makes it even better! A recent free group gift at b[ELLE] is perfect for getting into the spirit of the season. It has a full outfit for the guys, and a cute dress with bat wings (not shown) for the ladies. The b[ELLE] group is free to join, and there are quite a few free group gifts available. For more info on each of the outfits included in this spook-tacular gift just keep reading. Otherwise, scroll down for full credits. Thanks for being here!

B[ELLE] Group Gift – Ladies Outfit

This halter style dress is every bit as cute on as it looks. I have to say I felt a little bit like Betty Rubble dressed in her Halloween frock. It comes in several sizes including sizes and an alpha layer for classic avatars. There’s a color change hud as well with 3 color choices for the dress, and 3 similar color choices for the men’s shirt. Also included are an adorable pair of bat wings which I chose to not wear.

Dress Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (small, large) + Alpha, eBody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

B[ELLE] Group Gift – Men’s Outfit

The men’s outfit part of the free gift includes the casual shirt and matching pants. I like the fact that the print is just on the front of the shirt. I think it keeps it from being too busy. It’s really perfect for the season. The same hud that is used for the dress also works for this shirt. The jeans and shirt come in several sizes, and there is an alpha layer for both so this outfit is suitable for classic avatars.

Shirt Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (small, medium, large) +Alpha, Belleza Jake, Signature (Gianni, Geralt), Slink
Jean Sizes Included: Fitmesh + Alpha, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink

P.S. The hat Blue has on is also free! You can hunt it down at Horr. It’s their free Demons and Heathens Hunt prize. “I can see the alley from here.”

Out of the Woods

Out of the Woods

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.  It might look like Ripley and I are feeling all dark and brooding, but actually we enjoyed a bright sunny day in RL.  We’re here to share a couple of Fabulous Finds with you that we think you’ll really enjoy.

I’m Feeling a Bit Sassy…

It must be this new free Black Dress that I picked up over at the Sass store.  With a plunging neckline and two peek-a-boo slits in the skirt, it certainly is a flirty little number.  I love the way this frock hugs your curves and leaves your back tantalizingly bare.  You can’t really see them from my photo, but there are 3 little buttons that gleam in the light which add visual interest to the bodice.  The black and gray striped skirt section and over all dark color scheme made me think of a spooky, mysterious vibe, so Ripley and I decided to visit an eerie forest for our photo.  Although the weather might be getting more nippy outside, fortunately in SL, I don’t need to worry about catching a chill in this saucy mini dress. To pick up a copy for your SL wardrobe, you need to be a member of the Sass group, and there is a small 10 Linden dollar join fee, but I think this dress is well worth the investment!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

These Boots

As much as I love my new dress, I *adore* the Petra Boots from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes that I am wearing!  With a high heel design, detailed lacing and silver accents, these boots are great to wear with a dressier outfit, but also flexible enough to coordinate with a more casual style.  The white stitching really pops against the black leather background.  The folder includes versions for classic avatars (with a shoe base, alpha layer and a handy resizer for the perfect fit) as well as for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass.  All I had to do to add this versatile pair of footwear to my closet was to locate the collection of pillar candles hidden in the shop (and by *I*, I meant Ripley), pay the teensy 1L price and scurry home to try them on.  The Dark and Brooding Hunt runs until September 30th and features a gothic, vampire theme, which is perfect for the upcoming Halloween holiday.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

We Dream in Colors Borrowed From the Sea

Sight Seeing

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I spent some time this afternoon taking in the gorgeous ocean vistas over at the La Vie sim.  In this picture, Ripley is chatting with a pair of seagulls who were hanging out on a balcony overlooking the sea.  He so enjoys making new friends!  Lucky for me, he also likes helping me locate hunt prizes.  The sweet mini dress I’m wearing is one such discovery.

Life’s a Beach

Earlier in the morning, he and I hit the trail of the Life’s a Beach Hunt, and down at the Folds and Wrinkles store, he sniffed out the hunt object, a sandcastle.  I happily paid the 1 Linden dollar prize fee, then hurried home to try on my new outfit.    With a pale blue background fabric accented with lace flowers and a ruffled hemline, this dress is ideal for a summer date night.  It’s flirty, but still provides coverage in all the right places.  Realistic folds in the fabric add to its visual appeal.  The dress is made exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body, and it hugs all my curves beautifully.  I’m including a second picture below so you can see the front view of this adorable mini.  If you like it as much as I do, I’d encourage you to head to the shop soon because the hunt wraps up on June 30th.

C'est La Vie

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Kimono BoHo

Kimono BoHo

Are ya feeling lucky? Well… are ya?  Cause I sure am!

I was making my normal rounds today when I popped into Oubliette to check out the groups and the Lucky boards and Bingo! There was a big ol’ J on this awesome kimono and tank set! Lucky Lucky Me!

Kimono Boho

This is the ‘Midnight Velvet Burnout Kimono’ and it’s one of four lucky boards in the Oubliette mainstore. All you need to do is be a member of the free Petite Mort and Oubliette group and wait for your lucky letter to pop up and it’s all yours. The kimono and tank are one piece but you get a nice HUD of styles and colors for the tank. I love the relaxed boho look I’ve got going on here.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

 

Sweet 16

So, I took my boho self over to the grand SecondLife 16th Birthday celebration… and wooooow. There’s a ton to see and do! I was nearly overwhelmed. There are so many free gifts both at the main celebration and in the shopping area… I lost count of them all!  I may never open all these boxes.  But I was really pleased when the gift from Earthstones matched my kimono boho outfit so perfectly.

This the ‘Ferris’ necklace in moonstone and pearls and it’s Eathstones free SL16 gift. There’s also a matching set of earrings. Like everything from Earthstones, this set is absolutely perfectly made and simply gorgeous.

P.S.

Lastly, I have a quick note about my hair. While I’m not featuring my new hair, I want to pass along the news that Magika is finishing up their big Summer sale tomorrow, the 25th. All the hair in the store is 50% off. Even the deep discount hair. For everyone not just Group members. It’s a great time to grab those styles you had your eye on!

Hello November!

Hello November

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a fantastic Halloween.  We had quite a few trick or treaters last night.  It seemed like I would just sit down to type up this blog post, and then DING DONG went the door bell again!  There were a number of “first timers” that were just super adorable.  I think we had one repeat visitor, or maybe it was just a popular costume….since it had a full mask, I guess we’ll never know.  The best part (for me anyway) is we still have some candy leftover.  Yay!  Sorry boy, dogs can’t have chocolate.

Yes, It’s Free!

Speaking of sweet treats, Alias! is gifting the Dot Orange outfit to members of Fabulously Free in SL completely for free.  It features a tube top style shirt with a playful polka dot print in orange, white and black, as well as curve-hugging black jeans with a flared bottom hem.  Packed with details such as gleaming silver buttons, vertical panels in the pants and a ruffled bottom on the top, this duo aims to please.  Although you can’t see them well in my picture because of the bell bottoms, the package also includes chunky heels with a coordinating polka dot pattern.  Since each of the components are worn separately, you can mix and match them with other items in your wardrobe for added versatility.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Shoes for Belleza, Ebody, Maitreya, and Slink

After hearing that he can’t have any of the candy, the pupster is now pouting in the corner.  I’m off to whip up a batch of Ripley Snacks to help him feel a bit better.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom

Autumn's Blooms

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to share one of our discoveries as we checked out the hunt going on at the Rock Your Rack Event.  It costs only 10 little Linden dollars, and features just the cutest botanical design.

Autumn Posies

Over at the Maci booth, if you can find the coat hanger with the heart on it (it’s not that hard to locate), you can scoop up the Autumn Blooms skirt for yourself.  With a cheerful floral print across a black background, this mini can pair with a top in a variety of colors from black as I chose to wear, to red, pink or white.  I really like the decorative white stitching along the waist and hem lines; it adds a bit of visual contrast.  The waistline sits low, just below your belly button so if you wear a cropped top, you can show off some skin while the temperatures outside are still fairly mild (unless you live near Love in which case you are stuck with snow).  Since the package includes sizes for classic as well as mesh body avatars, I’m sure you’ll find the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you have a wonderful Friday tomorrow.  I know I’m sure looking forward to a relaxing weekend.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Take it Easy Kinda Day

A Take It Easy Kinda Day

Hello Fabulous Readers!  What better way is there to spend a day than curled up alongside the beach?  Although Ripley couldn’t manage to climb up onto this platform with me, he also had a great time today, chasing gulls up and down the shoreline, barking, and digging in the sand.  It’s back to the grindstone for me tomorrow, but for right now, I just want to relax and listen to the waves lapping the shore.  Thank you, Three Day Weekend!

Cute and Casual

I found the right outfit for my “take it easy kinda day” over at Artizana.  The other day, I blogged about an elegant two piece dress that you can pick up for free, just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  If you missed it, here’s the link.  While I was in the shop, I took a look at the other group gifts the generous designer has set out, and couldn’t help but admire the Terike VIII.  With its rich purple hue with lilac accents, and fun harem pants style, I knew I just had to scoop it up.  I love the cropped halter style top, and the way it allows the summer breeze to caress my skin.  I quickly changed my tag to the Third Life Group and tapped the vendor to pick up my free reward.   The group has a 10 Linden dollars join fee, but group members have access to a plethora of free gifts around the grid.  You do need to pay the vendor one Linden dollar to have the gift delivered to you, but it is instantly refunded.  The package includes versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars, so I’m sure you’ll find the perfect fit for you!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Halter Top in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Mesh Harem Pants in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

I hope you had a wonderful Monday and look forward to sharing another Fabulous Find with you soon.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Oh Baby It’s a Wild World

Tiger Lily

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Ripley and I took a walk in the cool, fragrant woods on the Ren Faire sim.  It sure beat the 113 degrees real life threw my way!  I couldn’t resist posing for a snapshot in front of a bed of tiger lilies.  They echoed the hue of my new dress beautifully.

A Free Gift for a Fabulous Group

Isn’t the “Alone Again” frock a beauty?  Featuring an asymmetrical hemline and slender shoulder straps, it gracefully drapes over your curves.  The neckline in front is quite high, but the back is open and allows the summer breeze to caress your skin.  I just love the vivid hues in the fabric!  The pattern is called “animal,” and I can see the echo of tiger stripes and a leopard print design in the texture.  With fit mesh for classic avatars and mesh body versions, this free gift from Entice is ideal for most avatars.  The designer even included two alphas – one for smaller sizes and one for larger sizes.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply activate the Fabulously Free in SL group tag (it’s completely free to join), and click the vendor.   If you are a fan of bold colors and dramatic textures, this is sure to become a summer favorite!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh
  • Alpha layer for smaller and larger sizes
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Until my next post, happy shopping!
