Just a Hippie Girl, in a Hippie World

coming soon

I am a sucker for anything artsy and bohemian… or pink.  I’m like a bohemian version of Elle Woods (Legally Blonde).  Ok I’m not *like* a bohemian version of Elle Woods, that’s basically what I actually am, right down to a rescue Chi. (I don’t dress him in pink however, he is really a daddy’s boy)

Today is a bohemian sort of day, it’s warm, a bit humid, breezy.  So I stopped at this cute food truck to grab a cold drink and it came with a slice of watermelon!  So refreshing!  I really needed a walk someplace quiet, I’ve been all over the place doing the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt!  It was so much work to get set up, but now I am enjoying the fruits of all that labor (not watermelon!  lol).  I hope you guys are too!

While I took my stroll, I put on this cute top I got in the hunt thanks to The Bold Llama.  She has so many fun tank tops, I just love her shop. (I’m a sucker too for shirts that say stuff, and the crazier/funner (it’s a word!!!!  lol!) the better!)  This was only 3L in the hunt and it fits:

  • Classic
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

The hunt runs until July 22, but leave yourself plenty of time to hunt, there are lots of gorgeous items to be found!

OK gang, stay cool out there!

Fashion Forward

Snapshot_022

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.”

Gianni Versace

Hello again my fab free fam!

How do you decide what to wear?  Do you try to fit in and wear things that other people wear, or approve of, or do you do your own thing?  Do you dress according to mood?  Or maybe you have a system that helps you decide?

Me, I’ve always done my own thing, both in sl and rl.  It hasn’t always been the easiest to deal with (rl!) but I don’t have the ability to be anything but myself.  I’m very VERY bad at faking it.  What you see is what you get folks!  Now, in sl, we have a LOT more fashion choices than in rl.  I mean gosh I could NEVER fit all my sl clothing into my rl closet!  Nor would it all look as stunning on me as it does on my lovely sl avatar.  However, my choices are the same.  As I’ve said before, I feel like a sort of bohemian version of Elle Woods (Legally Blonde), while I was a tomboy most of my life and still mostly am, there is that part of me that lonnnnggggssssss to be girly but isn’t quite sure how to do it!  lol  I lost my mom at an early age and had no other female role models, so I became sort of a guys girl.   Many of my closest rl friends are guys and I find them easier to hang with than other girls, for the most part.  I’m not sure I ever properly learned how to “girl”.  lol  But I digress!  (I go off on side tangents, sorry  lol) My choices in both worlds reflect the bohemian, artsy, PINK-ishness, quirky soul that I am.  I don’t care if its in style, if I love it, I wear it.  Also unicorns.  anything & everything with unicorns.

Respond in comments and tell me what fashion inspires in you and what you love to choose!

As you can see, today I have chosen an adorable complete outfit from Bad Rabbit.  It was a free gift with no group required.  This outfit comes with everything you see here, dress and matching boots.  It has a HUD that gives 5 texture choices for the dress and five matching choices for the boots.  There was a pink choice for it but I chose blue cause I don’t want y’all to get crazy at me!  lol!

The dress comes in:

  • Tonic – Minimizer, Fine, Curvy
  • Star
  • Hourglass
  • Signature
  • Maitreya & Maitreya Petite
  • Kupra – Low, Original, Bimbo
  • Ebpdy – Classic, Curvy
  • Belleza – Isis, Freya
  • Altamura

The boots come in:

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Freya

Since this got to be a rather long-ish post (!!), I shall wrap up here and see you next time lovelies, when I show you a great look for a casual night out!

Cheers to us saving the world, one outfit at a time,

❤ Arielle

Get Your Sexy On!

amui_003

Hey there fab fam!

Hope you are all doing well as we roll on into February!

What kind of clothing makes you feel sexy?  There are sooooo many ways to feel sexy.  You can’t go by what everyone else does to feel sexy cause we all got our own brand of sexy, ya know what I mean?  Embrace your sexy, ladies!  Even if its offbeat. Usually my sexy is a sort of geeky nerdy bohemian sexy cause that’s me.  I always say I’m sort of a bohemian version of Elle Woods, or I aspire to be.  She is such a confident extrovert.  Whereas I… am a dorky, awkward introvert.  LOL  But people that have known me for ages don’t think I am an introvert.  Cause once I am comfortable with someone, well, all hell will break loose.  😛

But I digress!

Where were we?  Oh yes, sexy.  lol   (Like what was the point of this post again???  lol  Someone give me one of those V8 bops on my forehead huh!  Remember those?)

AMUI is being oh so generous to us, she has a $250L Gift Card available until February 15 so that we can all spoil ourselves for Valentine’s.  It’s free to group members (Group fee is only 25L) and half price ($125L) to non group members.  She has a wonderful variety of styles to choose from so you absolutely cannot go wrong.  I love her shop.  With my gift card I scooped this sexy velvet evening dress.  I chose this yummy purple but it comes with a HUD that gives you five gorgeous color choices.  The velvet, the bare-shoulder-ish-ness and the slit make me feel sexy!

It comes in these sizes:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Fitmesh
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • HourGlass
  • Physique
  • Curvy
  • Fine
  • Voluptuous

While you are happily shopping at AMUI, you will notice a section of gorgeous jewelry by Lazuri, there is a free gift there, no group necessary, so grab that too!  It comes with earrings (not shown) and the necklace I am wearing, which just so happens to go mahvellously with my dress.  🙂  There are some really beautiful pieces there, I may have to go back for a bit more shopping…  🙂

Pups and kittens my friends!

❤ Arielle
