Who needs colour on the beach? Rocking the monochrome!

Ok, I’m back with another Do the Dot Hunt post. I have to say, one of the things I love about a good hunt, there is always a store with great shoes in the hunt, so it’s so easy to put together an outfit. Especially when the hunt has a theme. Like polka dots! Have I mentioned how much i love polka dots? LOL.

For today’s post, I started with the very classy looking dress and hat set from Fi’s Creations. The lovely DO THE DOT Pencil-Dress & Hat set includes a fun floppy hat, and a form-fitting mesh dress, in standard sizes of course. Conveniently, the belt on the dress has a separate flower attachment, so you can choose to wear it, or not, I love options. The flower for the belt matches the flower on the hat, and has this great texture that makes them look like they are glittering as you move! To remind you, all gifts for the Do the Dot hunt are free, and you are looking for a white, with black dots, ball.

My shoes are the hunt gift that you can find at B!ASTA. They are the [ B! ] :MOVING TO SALAMANCA: Dotted sandals (for Slink Mid). Don’t you just love the name? While they could have been any colour, and I would have been happy, I really like the monochromatic look I get when combined with this dress, especially when my surroundings are so bright and colourful. Ohhh, I almost forgot to mention, for those of you who do not have SLink feet, there is also a pair for system feet! Everybody wins with these 🙂

Calle’s FabFree Photo Submission – July “O’Canada”

I have to admit, it took me quite awhile to come up with my submission for the Monthly Photo Challenge, especially as I had already done a post to celebrate Canada Day at the beginning of the month, wearing my country’s colours. Oh sure, I could have submitted one of those pictures, but I wanted to do some pictures specifically for the challenge. So here it is.

PhotoChallengeJuly1

So, this oh-so-sexy halter dress was a find on the Marketplace! I typed in ‘red white dress’, LOL, and this was one of the many items that popped up. The Furry Circle Halter Dress is from LA VITA, and is a great buy at only L$1. It is mesh, coming in 5 standard sizes, from XXS-L, and it fits like a dream. There is an in-world store HERE if you like the more hands on approach of shopping, and the Halter Dress is still, only L$1 there as well.

PhotoChallengeJuly2

Sunglasses were a must, in this sunny coastal setting,  and the [ bubble ] Star Me Up White Glasses fit the bill perfectly. These adorable sunglasses are available right now, in a gacha at the Candy Shop event, and are only L$50 a play. Each pair comes with a HUD that allows you change the colour of the lenses, and there is a chance at winning the full fatpack. I’ve included a photo of the board so you can see all the colours you have a chance at winning.

PhotoChallengeJuly3

Elephante poses recently released a second July group gift, free for their VIP group members, which is a set of 6 static poses called Ember. There is a L$300 join fee for this group, but if you are a pose junky, like I am, then it is more than worth it As I said, this is the second July group gift released, and the first is still available as well, and you also get a 15% credit with every purchase made in store with your group tag on. If you do not have the group space, don’t fret, there is a subscribo available, which also has a little giftie available for July.  So either way, you win!

OK lovelies, that is it for me, for now…but I have more I want to show you, so, until then, TTFN!!

…and not a drop of blood on me anywhere!

Have any of you Fabulous readers ever looked at the Destinations Guide on the SL website? It has soo many different places listed for you to go and explore, and I am always on the lookout for a new to me sim for pictures. This time, I ended up at The Cornfield, and wow, I was not prepared for it at all, but more about that at the end of my post. What I am really here for, is to tell you about some of the pieces of my outfit I put together for my monster bashing escapade. Yes, I said monster bashing 😛

TheCornfield1

The other night, one of our own FabFree designers, [free bird], put out a notice in the FabFree group about a time-sensitive, new group gift thingy they are doing, and thingy is totally the technical term I am going for. They are calling it the [free bird] free-for-all give away. The first item to try out this new system is this beautifully embroidered, flowey, mesh Sunday Tank Top. Now, I’ll explain how this works. You join the [free bird] group, which is free to join, and then you find the poster of the tops and click on it, you will be given one random colour, out of 5, for free! It’s like a free gacha, the catch is, you only get 1 per person, but like other gacha’s, the tops are transferable. So if you and a friend go, and each get a colour that the other wanted, you can swap! Or, as I did , you can join the group with an alt, and transfer as needed (of course, I only did this purely because I wanted to show you all a couple of the colours…really, LOL) As I said, this is a limited time offer, only good until July 21st, and then they will no longer be free, so don’t miss out!

I also wanted to show off this cute SLink nail applier set I lucked out in finding for free on the Marketplace! The Shady Ladies- Sailor Jerry SLink Nails are a summer freebie exclusive, and come in a handy single HUD format that will change both your fingernails and toenails at the same time. I just love the classic sailor tattoo theme of these nails. I’ve included a shot of the HUD so you can see the other textures you have as a choice.

OK, let’s get back to the monsters, shall we? If you are bored and are all shopped out one night, head over to The Cornfield, you won’t stay bored for long. Head to the back of the barn, and enter the portal there, you will be asked to give permissions of your av, agree to it, because once you land in the main barn, you will find that you now have a few new accessories. The lovely nailed board I am holding, and the cute basket on my back will both be attached to you, as well, there will be a HUD on your screen. The goal is to run around the cornfield picking up corn and corn bucks, which you can then use to buy yourself stuff in the main shop, including upgrades in weapons as well as armor. The catch…. the field is full of monsters, I have provided a few examples below. Really, it’s a lot of fun! Make sure you read the notecards you are given, and invite a bunch of friends, I had a blast. Bashing monsters is a great way to get rid of any stress you may have 🙂

I have to say, I did pretty good. I only died once (don’t worry, it was pretty painless), and I did not get any blood on my shirt! That is a bashing well done 🙂 Until next time, TTFN *waves her board high in the air*
