Slip Into a Little Red Dress

Lady in Red

Hello Fabulouses!  Mondays………nothing a little shopping can’t fix!  All you need to do is scoop up a sexy, little red dress.   The Ecce Bellus dress is a gorgeous, crimson frock crafted from crushed silk.  Slender shoulder straps, a curve-hugging fit, and a daring slit in the skirt will draw all eyes your way.   A low cut back provides a tantalizing glimpse of skin as it keeps you cool on a warm spring day.  Best of all, the mini is completely free for members of the Fabulously Free in SL Group.  All you have to do is switch to your Fab Free tag, teleport over the the Ecce Bellus shop, and give the board a tap.  The gift also includes the free coordinating Cassie Heels for Belleza and Slink High.  The graceful T-Strap style sandals continue the flirty feel of my outfit all the way down to the tips of my toes.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer

Despite the stormy gray skies, Ripley and I decided to take a stroll through the beautifully landscaped Black Cat Orcadi Island sim, and found a lovely bed of poppies to act as a backdrop for my photo.    Now *this* is definitely the way to shake off those Monday blues!  Until next time, happy shopping, Fabulous Readers!

Uptown Girl

Uptown Girl

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to meet a friend for coffee at this shop in the City of Templemore.  With my companion running late, I had plenty of time to snap a photo of my latest outfit to share with you all.

Sleek and Elegant

My entire outfit today, with the exception of the boots and cell phone, are free gifts from Rowne.  The Alla Crepe Top and Xinyu Trousers brought to mind a sophisticated, uptown girl look (tune).  I like the high waist of the pants, and the short cropped top, which left one arm bare while the opposite was encased in a full-length sleeve.  I thought it made for an interesting visual contrast.  The pants emphasized my long, slender figure, and at first, I had a hard time finding footwear that would work with them.  My slink feet and shoes poked through far above the hemline of the trousers, and I couldn’t adjust where they attached on my legs.  Uh-oh…

An Uh-Oh Followed by a Sigh of Relief

After adjusting my hover height to be slightly above the ground, I dug down deep in my inventory, and found some old-style boots that I could adjust and slide down to the bottom of the cuffs of the trousers.  It worked like a charm, and I was quite pleased with the outcome. Unfortunately, when I went to include the landmarks for my post, I discovered that the boots in my full-body shot were no longer available.  I did, however, find an alternate pair from Blackburns (shown in the close up picture below) that worked just as well, and these were only 29L on the Marketplace!  Phew!

An Entire Outfit, But That’s Not All…

In addition to the pantsuit, Rowne also has the Jane Cat Eye Sunglasses, Bon Bon Earrings, and Buckett bag set out as free gifts for group members.  I felt they all coordinated beautifully, so I combined them in one look.  The end result:  classy sophistication!  Although the group has a 350L join fee, the numerous gifts available balance out the initial expense.

What’s Included in All the Gifts:  

  • Alla Crepe Crop Top and Xinyu Crepe Trousers fit for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique
  • Buckett Bag (with two pose options)
  • Cat Eye Sunglasses in Onyx (they were originally on top of my head; I edited them to be on my face)
  • PW BonBon earrings in Lilac (shown) and Hunter

Here’s a close up of the Blackburn boots.  They’re cute, aren’t they?

Well, that’s a wrap!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Back Against the Wall

Prism

The Work Week Cometh

I thought I’d get one more post in before the work week begins (and very little time to blog). I joined the group for FREE at Prism for Men and scored the Jeremy Outfit as the group gift. Astrid previously posted it here. This mesh outfit includes the shirt and pants with accompanying alphas AND a HUD to change each to four different colors. (4 pants x 4 shirts = 16 different outfit combinations).

Last Minute Hunting

There is still time left to find items in the Fall ’16 MenStuff Hunt. All items on this hunt are $0L – $1L.  I found the Men’s Classic Checkerboard Sneakers at Kingbal Stores for FREE all it just took a little searching. I also found some poses from Pics & Poses for FREE. I really need to update my collection.

Like an Anchor Around My Neck

Also on the MenStuff Hunt, I found this FREE Gold Anchor Necklace at ELYSIUM. The necklace also come in silver if gold isn’t your thing. It’s off to work, I’ll post when I can.

 

It’s good to be back!

A modern day flowerchild – peace, love and all that other stuff.

flowerchild1

Hello all you wonderful FabFree readers. So, RL has been a little rough for me the past 2 weeks, and while I won’t go into things, all I will say is I really needed a break from it all. It got me thinking though, what I wouldn’t give to be back in the 60’s and become a flowerchild. You know what I’m talking about right? Carefree, happy, peaceful, doing whatever they wanted whenever, and not seeming to worry over much at all. At least that’s what the movies I’ve seen with these types of characters have taught me, and movies are always right…right? In honour of these thoughts of mine, I’ve put together what I think is a modern take on a 60’s flowerchild.

flowerchild2

It all started with me putting in random search words on the Marketplace to find new items to show you all. I happened across a really cute top from Moon Amore. It was the Hey Sexy Lace top in white, and at only L$10, I had to have it. Clicking on the listing for the Moon Amore Marketplace store, I started browsing, and found the lovely high-waisted Vintagmatic Pants in Blue. With the pretty flower pattern, and lace detail on the waist…they were perfect to go with my top. They too were only L$10!. Both pieces are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. I will warn you, the top is semi-transparent. Lighter toned skins will be alright, but I still chose to add a pretty bra underneath.

flowerchild3

Next I needed shoes. I had happened to be wandering around the Boho Culture Fair, which finished on the 2nd, and found the gacha from Elysium with these fun fringed wedges. For only L$50 a play, you get 2 sets of shoes, a solid coloured pair like what I am wearing, and a pair with a cork sole. They are meant for mid feet from SLink or Maitreya. Now, you may ask, why am I telling you about these if the Fair is already closed down? I actually messaged the creator and owner of Elysium and asked her if she planned to put that gacha in her store, and she thought it was a great idea and said she’d try to put it out this weekend. So, if you head to her store and if it’s not there yet, give it a little time and check back. They are totally worth it.

flowerchild4

The last piece to my flowerchild puzzle was funky nail polish, and I had just gotten a notice from La Boheme saying there were new Bi-weekly L$10 polishes out for the start of the month. The beautiful bright colours, and sweet Indian inspired pattern (albeit hard to see in my photo) of the Marakech set, won me over immediately. These will work for SLink, Maitreya, and bodies that can use the Omega applier system, and are for both the fingers and toes. I had a little fun with mine, choosing to do 2 different colours from the hud for SLink/Omega on my fingers. This set will only be at this price for the first half of the month, so don’t wait too long to run and grab it.

So, what do you think? Would I make a good modern-day flowerchild? With my slightly wild hair and being surrounded by nature? Whether you agree or not, you have to admit, these were some great deals, and I can see this being one of my go-to looks.

I hope you have a wonderful Friday evening, or Saturday morning, depending on your location, and I will see you all again soon! Until next time, TTFN *waves*

Art~Paris METRO & Elysium

Good Morning!

I hope you all took advantage of the fabulous offerings, around the grid, for St. Patrick’s Day.  I finished off the day with a visit to the Paris Metro Art Gallery …where Love suggested I would find a wonderful exhibit AND a free outfit from Paris Metro Couture.

The exhibit, featuring the work of Indea Vaher, highlights the life of African American women from a fictional barrier island; off the coast of the USA.  Vaher is an artist in First Life and her work, focusing on African American southern culture, has been internationally recognized.  The Paris METRO Vaher Dress brilliantly reflects the vibrant colors of Indea’s art pieces, and it is FREE to anyone; you will find it in a vendor right at the landing point.  It comes with a matching hat (not worn).

I styled the outfit with a gorgeous Jah versace Headwrap from L&H Couture and a Mesh Necklace 02, from .:ECCO:. FREE (no group join required).
Art~Paris METRO & Elysium
This stunning Africa skin is also a FREE item from Elysium…which also generously comes with hand/feet/phat azz/Lola appliers and shape (worn).  The skin comes with an Africa jewelry set and is part of the MEGAstuff Hunt, brought to you by WOMENstuff and MENstuff…just look for the little red tshirt to receive your FREE items.  I’ve embedded a link for the MEGAstuff Hunt page so you can check out the starting point and any other info you might need to do this Hunt.

Stop by the Indea Vaher Art Exhibit, check out her amazing work and don’t forget your FREE outfit from Paris METRO Couture…then hop on over to Elysium and Ecco for more free goodies!

Hunting For Gold This St.Patrick’s Day!

Snapshot_001Hey Fabulouses! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  You may have noticed…   I am not wearing a spot of green, and mostly – it’s because I like the pinches!

I decided to still dress in theme, but with gold.  That’s got to be a St. Patty’s Day colour too, no?  😉  Today I am wearing Tres Beau‘s belted Flourish Outfit, which can be picked up for 1L after locating the Womenstuff Hunt icon.

The gold necklace I am wearing to accessorize my outfit comes in a set at Elysium for the Womenstuff Hunt (1L as well) that includes the African Jewelry Set (matching necklace & earrings which are under my hair :/), and also an African Skin set (not shown today).

Snapshot_002

The lovely Luna skin I am in today is made by WoW Skins, and is one of the skins currently being featured at The Skin Fair.

*pinches for you all!*
