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!

Autumn Stroll

Walk With Me

Post Holiday Trick or Treating

Hello Fabulouses!  Even though Halloween is over, the Halloween Hunt is still going strong over at Ricielli’s.  Ripley and I moseyed on over today to check out this fabulous in-store event.  For just 15L per prize, you can scoop up 20 goodie baskets which contain footwear, tops, dresses and even some lacey undergarments.  My sexy mini is just one of the hunt gifts up for grabs.  The Bobbi Dress is hunt item #3, and she’s a real beauty!  With detailed extras such as the ruffled trim on the bodice and the neatly tied bow at the waistline, this frock will not disappoint!  The rich burgandy texture has a subtle sheen which highlights the realistic folds in the fabric.  All you have to do is search through the store, locate the basket containing item #3, and pay 15L.  The baskets are scattered throughout the shop, but they are quite easy to find, so in no time at all, you can collect all 20 gifts.

Close Your Eyes

You Can Close Your Eyes

Well the sun is surely sinking down, but the moon is slowly rising,

so this old world must still be spinning ’round, and I sill love you.

So, close your eyes.  You can close your eyes; it’s all right…

Hello again, Fabulous Readers!  My first stop at The Cart Wash Sale was the Baci Shop display, where I found the Last Leaves Dress that I blogged about {HERE}.  Ripley and I planned to start checking out the rest of The Cart Wash, but before we began our journey, I couldn’t resist scooping up another Fabulous Find from the Baci Shop, this gorgeous sweater dress.

Visiting the Baci Shop, Again

With rich tones, long sleeves and a chunky knit, this frock will keep me toasty warm well into autumn.  I love the bright pops of color in the simple flowers, which contrast beautifully against the ombre background of the “Again” dress.   Its snug fit draws attention to my curves in all the right places.  I could see myself sporting this dress in RL as well as SL, if only temperatures were below the 90’s.  (Hang in there, Kat, we’ll get there….).  Priced at only 10L, this budget-friendly, gorgeous sweater dress will snuggle you in warmth and style, while leaving plenty of spare linden dollars for more Cart Wash finds.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

So Many More Discoveries to Make…

With two Fabulous Finds just from one vendor at The Cart Wash, Ripley and I are eager to explore further.  I’m sure we will be back soon!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

You Had Me At Pink

Pretty in Pink
Hello Fabulouses!  Today, Ripley and I wandered the grid in search of some autumn colors, and came across this lovely patch of wildflowers on the Salt Water sim.  Although they weren’t the fall foliage we were seeking, they coordinated beautifully with my new dress, so I just had to snap a photo.

Pretty in Pink

Speaking of my frock, this lovely mini is a free gift for members of the Mesh Body Friends group from Hilly Haalan.  In a deep rose hue, this sleeveless little number features sexy lacing in the front and the back.  I love the soft shimmer of the fabric and the way the skirt flares slightly to allow freedom of movement.  This dress is so sweet and feminine!  It is designed specifically for mesh avatars, and fit my Maitreya Lara body beautifully.  Best of all, since the Mesh Body Friends group has no join fee, I was able to scoop up the Estela dress completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP

I don’t know about you, but I sure am glad tomorrow is Friday!  This has been a long, busy week for me in RL, and I am looking forward to some relaxation and lazy moments this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Late Summer Stroll

Summer Memories

Well, hello there, Fabulouses!  I sure hope your week is off to a wonderful start.  Ripley and I paused on our late summer walk to snap a quick picture of an adorable floral tank that is a free August gift for Third Life group members from Fax.  With a soft, almost vintage print, halter style neckline, and delicately criss-crossed straps in the back, this top made a welcome addition to my wardrobe.  It paired beautifully with denim shorts for a casual outfit, but I think it would also be lovely with a skirt or a pair of capris.  To scoop up this shirt for yourself, simply activate the Third Life group tag (if you’re not already a member, there is a 10L join fee), teleport over to the Fax shop, and click the vendor. The gift includes versions for a variety of mesh bodies, as well as fit mesh and an alpha layer, so it is bound to fit most avatars.  Since it is quite close to the end of the month, and I’m not sure how long this top will be available, I’d recommend making the journey as soon as possible if you’d like to claim your very own copy.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBody
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Maitreya
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars

With the sun setting in the distance, the pupster and I had better scurry on home before nightfall.  I didn’t bring my flashlight, and he tends to get a bit terrified over protective when evening falls and twigs go “snap” in the dark.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
