1 Stop, 2 Free Dresses

Old Fashioned_001

I’m going back in time 1920’s style and I’m not ashamed to say that I’m loving it! “Hey waiter when will my table be ready?”

If you’re looking for quality 1920’s style dresses for roleplay at the Chicago 1920’s Sim, or maybe you just like the classic look, Eloise Baker delivers! And right now you can make one stop at the store and get two free dresses! I stopped by and did just that.

First, out in the middle of the main-store is a free to all gift that I’ve donned in my first picture. It comes in all the Standard mesh sizes, plus a Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya. I found that the sleeves on the Maitreya were a little too small and opted for a standard mesh size medium and that seemed to fit just perfectly. Just buy this dress for 0L.

In the picture below, you will see the free gift that is set out exclusively for FabFree group members. Don your free FabFree group tag and pick this dress up. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes plus a fitmesh size. It has a lovely floral look and the waistband is a nice touch. It’s classic styling!

A Road Trip Around the Grid

Puppy Trio

A Hunting We Will Go

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I set off Around the Grid, and while visiting the Facepalm Clothing Company, scooped up a lacy top and short set (called Road Trip) for just one little Linden dollar over the weekend.  I really like the way Road Trip’s wrap-style tunic has an asymmetrical hemline, which is very short in the front, but long and flowing in the back.  The airy fabric keeps you well covered in strategic places, yet allows for a subtle peek at your midsection.  The hunt gift also includes a faded pair of denim shorts that hugged the curves of my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly.  If you don’t feel like searching for the smaller hot air balloon hunt object, you can purchase the prize for 25L by locating the Around the Grid Hunt display, and clicking the larger hot air balloon located next to the sign.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

Clearance Sale Tresses – Oh Yes!

When we needed a break from all that searching around along the hunt trail, Ripley and I visited Elikatira, and happily discovered the shop is in the midst of a Clearance Sale.  After doing a little happy dance, I discovered the ideal boho hairstyle to complete my Road Trip outfit.  Eden is a long, straight, center parted ‘do with a headband, that fit just the look I had in mind.  Included in the package is a daisy add on for the headband, which I felt echoed the creamy hue of my top perfectly.  For just 72L per pack, I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of color varieties (and a few other hairstyles as well).  I’m not sure how long this sale will last, so if you are interested in some high quality hairstyles at very budget-friendly prices, I’d recommend heading over to Elikatira as soon as possible.

Savoring the Last Few Days of Freedom

Ripley and I are enjoying our last few days of summer freedom.  All too soon, it will be back to the grindstone for me, and long days of silence, interrupted by some barking at the cats for Ripley when I head back to my job.  I hope no matter what you are doing in real life, you are able to work in some “you time.”  Until my next post, happy shopping (and hunting!).

Just a Bite

Just a Bite

Today is all about FREE stuff! Free clothes, free jewelry… free food. And who can pass up free food? I stopped by a neat little cafe to take my pictures because free food calls for cafe pictures, right?

Color me pretty

BYRNE sent out an amazing free subscriber gift for July. If you’re already a subscriber, then this tied Flamejob Tie Top is already in your inventory (have you unpacked it yet?). If not, hurry to the main-store and slap that subscriber and get your free gift. It comes in two colors and all the traditional mesh body sizes that you need. As usual it has the BYRNE flair for color with that extra sheen on the texture that I just love. Color me pretty, but I love this top!

Just a Bite Closeup

Paired up

I paired my new free top with a pretty pair of free earrings from the Gacha Garden. These were a gift from Luas. You’ll need the Gimme Gacha group to pick up the gift, but the group is free to join, so these earrings won’t cost you a single linden. They are nicely detailed without being overdone and I love the unique look to them. They are just a whole lot of fun!

Are you hungry?

My earrings weren’t the only thing I picked up for free at the Gacha Garden. Another free gift I picked up was the gift package of “Mouth Food” by Artisan Fantasy.

Included in the package is:

  • Mouth Food 1: Mozzarella, Tomato, Avocado
  • Mouth Food 2: Mozzarella, Strawberry, Basil
  • Mouth Food 3: Ham, Cheese, Pickle
  • Mouth Food 4: Feta, Cucumber, Tomato, Olive
  • Mouth Food 5: Watermelon, Feta, Basil (shown)
  • Mouth Food 6: Pigs in a Blanket

Nom, nom… off to nibble my goodies. See you around!

I See You Eyeing My Coffee!

I "Sea" You Eyeing My Coffee!

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I escaped to NorderNey today for a morning walk along the shore, and Mr. Gully, here, thought I brought my iced coffee for him.  Silly bird!  Even the pupster knows better than to get between this girl and her java first thing in the morning.  Although it might not look like it in the photo, I was ready to make some Kat-The-Desert-Girl-Ninja moves to rescue my cup, if need be.

Sweet Skirt For a Mini Price

Since it’s currently a promo gift at the Fax Marketplace shop, the cute mini skirt I am wearing in my snapshot cost just one Linden dollar.  It features a curve-hugging waistline tied with pink laces, and a flared hem that offers a comfortable fit.  In real life, I love to wear just this soft shade of green, so when I saw it on the marketplace, I knew it was destined for my SL inventory.  I chose to pair the Lara skirt with a full perm cropped tank top, which I was able to tint a matching shade.  I used the “Show Color Under Cursor” command in the Developer menu to help me match the RGB in the top to that of the skirt, so it was easy to create a coordinated outfit.  I think they go together beautifully!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh
  • Mesh (I did not see an alpha layer in the package)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Side-swept

My new, free hairstyle is a Hair Fair gift from [elikatira].  My first time going through the fair, I completely missed this giftie because the display said simply “Color Demo” and I didn’t realize the little gem that was contained inside this gift box.  With side-swept bangs and long tresses draped over my left shoulder, this new ‘do fit my style perfectly.  It contains nine color HUDs packed with all textures [elikatira] offers, and, best of all, was completely free at the Hair Fair shop.  When you navigate to the store, the gift is located on the floor in the right hand corner.  Simply click the display and buy it for 0L.

Help Me, I’m Melting!

It’s another super warm day where I am in RL (116 degrees Fahrenheit – “HOT”! according to Siri), and I am trying my best to stay cool.  It’s a good thing I don’t have to worry about high temperatures in SL.  I can run the AC in real life, and while away the hours in complete comfort.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Traveler’s Heart

Traveler's Heart

Wanderlust, beads, a banjo, a tambourine, tarot cards, and perhaps a crystal ball… A wagon, velvet and lace and layered skirts, poet shirts and dancing under the evening stars. If you just like the feel of traveler clothing, or if you are in the mood for a roleplay outfit to spice up your closet, this classic “traveler inspired” shirt and skirt with matching jewelry might just be the ticket you are looking for.

All in one place…

Shoenique Designs has evolved over the years. I remember when it was just a place to buy a unique pair of shoes. Now you can also get unique clothing and jewelry as well. I picked up this gypsy inspired skirt and poet shirt for free as an SLF & Offers gift on the gift wall. Just don your free SLF & Offers group tag and touch the gift board and this outfit is yours.

All the great sizes you need…

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya, Slink, Belleza

Matching jewelry too!

Right next to the beautiful outfit I picked up, was another generous free SLF & Offers gift from Shoenique Designs that matched the gypsy outfit just perfectly. The free Billy Jewelry Collection in Red Jasper includes a necklace, earrings (both shown) and a bracelet (not shown). I didn’t manage to get a close up to show you just how beautiful and detailed these pieces are (they match the skirt with all its colors just wonderfully), but if you click the Flickr picture, you can zoom in to see the jewelry at a close up to get a close look for yourself!

Happy (free) Shopping, Everyone!

These Platforms Were Meant for Dancing!

Hurry and get the shoes!

You can get these gorgeous Ava platforms (perfect for dancing, a date, or just casual wear) for just 50L if you stop by the main-store today!

We’ve still got about a week of the Women’s Only Hunt left (it lasts until June 24th) so you still have plenty of time to pick up the amazing free gifts out for all of us gals! I stopped by DuckNipple and searched for the coconut and discovered that their free gift was this really terrific Tubetop with colorchange hud. It has great styling and detail with the buckled top and the color change hud lets you choose between 10 different colors! I was so pleased at the variety.

Dark Magick

Dark Magic

I’m stirring up a little magic in my roleplay today, courtesy of SLB 14! I visited the event and was thrilled to see that roleplayers were not left out of the free treats and gifts to be picked up.

Generosity…

I was amazed at the generosity of [Tia], the creator of the Grimoire Table you see in my photo above. It is the free gift you can buy for 0L if you visit the [Tia] booth at SLB 14. The table is all decked out with tons of detail, including lit candles and a rotating magical aura on the book on top. For all this detail it weighs in at a mere 5 prim. This is a must add to your inventory for roleplay furniture.

And my dress!

My dress is a free gift also. If you go to The White Armory, and head inside the main building, you will see that it also houses BlueMoon Enterprises, where you can pick up their latest free gift (the group is free to join), this Saoise Dress in Aqua. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes a quality alpha so that you’ll be able to fit it to standard or mesh bodies either one. It’s perfect for some magical roleplay!

Bath Time!

Bathtime

It’s bathtime! And all I have to do is slip out of my new dress and take some time to relax. But first I have to tell you where I got my new attire (it was completely free) and as well as where my bath set came from! You’ll have to hurry on the bath set, as it is a Hello Tuesday event special!

The Dress

Pick up my pretty in pink Emma dress as a free group gift from ViSion. The group is free to join, making this dress free as well. It has a hud to change the color of the zipper on the back to three different metal choices, as well as you can change the color of the trim on the dress to many different colors as well for lots of versatility. The dress comes in several mesh body sizes including:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Hello Tuesday!

I stopped by the Hello Tuesday event to look around and came across the stall for Black Jack. Inside they had a variety of gachas and I fell in love with the quaint little bathroom set.

I picked up the entire set (though not quite every piece is shown in my picture… I didn’t manage to get the sink, wall mirror, or toilet into the shot). At only 50L per spin, this set is a nice addition to your home, and the bathtub includes a nice bathing animation! It is extremely low prim, with each piece coming in at only 1 to 3 prims each! You might just want the entire set for your home.

Rainbows

Pride
Hello Fab Free’rs! Thanks for coming by, hopefully a little retail therapy will help this Monday feel like, well, less of a Monday. As I am certain many are aware, June is Pride month. I think love is love and rainbows are Fabulous, especially when they come in the form of gifts (the rainbows, you dirty birds! *insert winky face here*). With those sweet simple sentiments in mind, I picked up the colorful June group gifts at Flowey and Stix.

First Rain, Then Rainbows

In my last post my plans had been slightly spoiled by a little rain. Since then I’ve been reminded that the rain never lasts forever, and you can’t have rainbows without a little rain. The rainbow on this cute tshirt dress from Flowey has nothing to do with rain I know, but I had to tie things in somehow! Even so, it’s good to remember those two sayings. That said, this thsirt dress is the June group gift at Flowey. It comes in several mesh sizes, and it’s FREE to all group members. There is a group join fee of 100 lindens for the Flowey group, however, I think it’s worth mentioning that I counted at least 6 previous group gifts still available.

Mesh Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Maitreya Lara Flat, Slink (Hourglass, Physique)
Pride Makeup

Rainbow Brite

I don’t feel at all bad admitting that I’ve been waiting for just the right outfit to wear this eye makeup from Stix. I was really excited to see a look with lots of dramatic color under the eye on the lower lid. I also love the addition of little silver or gold stars. This omega applier makeup is a FREE June group gift at Stix.  In the applier hud you can pick a bright or pastel version of the shadow with either gold or silver stars. Also included in the package are classic system layers. The Stix group is currently FREE to join. Does this gift remind anyone else of Rainbow Brite? One more reason to love it in my opinion!

Here are the details, Enjoy!
