Ready for Fall

Ready for Fall

Hello Fabulous Readers!  With weeks now of high temperatures soaring well over 100 degrees where we live in RL, the pupster and I are certainly ready for fall.  Sadly, we are realistically looking at high temperatures around 100 degrees into October here, so it’s a good thing Rip and I can catch a bit of autumn in SL.  I found just the outfit to help me celebrate cooler temperatures over at the Cart Sale at The Wash.

Layers are the Way to Go

When those crisp mornings arrive, I’ve found the best way to deal with fluctuating temperatures is to dress in layers, and it’s “mission accomplished” with the Russ Outfit from Emerald Couture.  I really like the way the soft green t shirt coordinates with the plaid of the over shirt.  Dark grayish green cargo shorts round out the look.  I just love all the extra storage space in the large pockets in these pants!  Well worn seams and realistic folds contribute to the comfy feel of the outfit.  Although I couldn’t get them to work with my mesh body, a pair of brown and green sneakers for classic as well as Slink feet are included.  The outfit includes only versions for classic bodies, but I was able to get just the right fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza Jake body.  The best part was the whole shebang cost just 10 Linden dollars at the Emerald Couture cart!

Sizes Included:

  • Two versions of fit mesh shorts plus classic mesh in S, M, L
  • Classic mesh shirt in XS, S, M, XL
  • Shoes for classic as well as Slink feet
  • Alpha layer for shorts and shirt

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Don’t blame me, love made me crazy

Don't blame me, love made me crazy

Heeeey FabFree! Happy Friday! I’ve got a busy weekend ahead of me, but I wanted to pop in and show you this gorgeous dress first!

I love this dress!

I got it for only 10L from Emerald Couture at The Wash‘s cart sale. It’s such a fun, easy to wear style that’s got that almost bohemian feel to it that I just can’t get enough of. For 10L I got the dress in these sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Original
  • TMP
  • Fitted
  • 5 classic sizes, L-XXS

Plus it comes with some matching purple heels sized for Slink that I’m not wearing.

Heels, too!

My new dress looks super cute as a long flowy blouse too with a pair of jeans, and I almost wore it that way. But then I picked up these fantastic shoes from Empire today for Fifty Linden Friday and obviously I didn’t have any choice but to change my plans. These shoes are a fantastic deal! I thought it was going to just be the colors on the vendor picture (which would have been totally worth it also), but no – you’ll get a fatpack of 20 colors! Yes, please. They are sized for:

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

And each size comes in 2 versions, regular and materials. I love the sexy strappy heel and how they go aaaaall the way up to thigh height!

I’m Done Adulting, Let’s Be Mermaids!

mermaaidswimmysuit

Good morning FabFree!  It’s here – It’s finally here…  The first day of The Sunny Side Up Event @ The Wash, where you’ll find a whole sim full of 10L items all in a sunshiny theme (and some 50L features too)!

I’d rather be a mermaid

I could hardly wait for the event to start so I could show you this sexy mermaid swimsuit available on the Emerald Couture display.  The Mermaid Ariel suit is applier based and includes the appliers listed below as well as a pair of matching Wedge shoes for Slink High Feet.  I wanted to get up nice and close so you could see the shimmery texture of the suit so the shoes unfortunately are not in the shot, but they have the same matching mer-scale print on them so you can glam up your beach look if you like.  You’ll get both the suit, and the shoes… for the low price of 10L!

Appliers Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Omega

Hello there Fabulous Readers!  I am returning with more news about a sweet item I found at The Wash Cart Sale!  I don’t know if it didn’t rez for me the first time I went around, or if this is a late add-on to the Emerald Couture display, but last night while I was taking a walk around the block (The FabFree Info Hub is on The Wash Sim!), I noticed this beautiful Asian inspired dress hanging  there in all it’s glory!

Surf’s Up

Snapshot_008

I need a warm weather break…

I am already sick of the cold and snow and it isn’t even January yet. It’s time for some fun in the sun, even if it is virtually. I headed out to Mauna Lani Surfing Beach to catch a few waves and enjoy the sunshine and the surf. There was even a parrot perched on the lifeguard chair, but flew away before I could snap a shot. Just my luck…

Hanging Ten…

Today’s offering is a Mini Mania Board item from Emerald Couture. Every five clicks pays out the Blue Sea Beach Trunks, which come ins standard sizes XS-XL. There is also a board for women and lots of lucky chairs to win prizes too! It’s worth the stop to check out. My Aviator Shades are one of several FREE group gift on the wall at Rebellion. Accessorize yourself in style with the group gifts found here. The Rebellion group is FREE to join and there are also group lucky boards at the store to win prizes from. My surf pose is a gacha find from Le Poppycock. Hang Ten is one of the many poses in the Surf’s Up series and each can be had for just 50L a pull.

That’s my wave, brah. Later Dude!

I Tried

12-26-2017

What Santa REALLY thinks…

He knows if you’ve been naughty. He knows when you’ve been nice. And he knows when you tried. I must have fallen into that category this year. Santa left me a gift that he found under the tree for Emerald Couture group members. The I Tried Outfit consists of a turtleneck, pants and sneakers. Each item comes made for the following body types:

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-L

And ladies, there is an I Tried Outfit for you under the tree too! I hope you scored some great gifts this Christmas as well!

Finally a Quiet Moment

A Quiet Moment

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m just sitting here, relishing the peace and tranquility at the Oh Deer sim.  I befriended this adorable tabby, but I’m not sure if he and the pupster will get along.  Speaking of Ripley, he and I found yet another great deal at The Cart Wash Sale this week.  Every time I go back, I discover something new to try.  Good thing for me the event continues on until November 1st!

Double Duty

Over at the Emerald Couture display, you can scoop up this cheery Fanni top for only 10L, which can be worn as a long shirt as I have done in my photo or as a dress.  I really like the flexibility with this top.  A plunging neckline adds a sexy touch.  With its bright crimson hue and scattered flowers,  Fanni has an almost Oriental flair, so I slipped on the Aran Jewelry set from Dressed by Lexi.  For only 10L, you get the necklace and a coordinating pair of earrings.   The silver pendant was the perfect accessory!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • eBody
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

Finishing the Look

Since autumn temperatures have rolled in, I opted to pull on a pair of black leggings which also came from the Emerald Couture display.  My EC Satin Leggings hugged my curves and contrasted beautifully with the red color of my top.  These bottoms will work well with a variety of other outfits, so as soon as I saw the price of only 10L, I quickly added them to my inventory.  With fits for many mesh avatars, you’re sure to find an option that works for you.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass (for flat and high feet)
  • Isis
  • Maitreya (for flat and high feet)
  • Physique (for flat and high feet)
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • eBody
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping!

I wasn’t exactly dressed for adventuring…

We all bleed the same color. 1

I wasn’t exactly dressed for adventuring… after all I was in my 10L Emerald Couture Dk Olive Bloom dress from the Cart Wash Sale with its asymmetrical hem and floral material…

Even if it did come in all the following sizes…

  • Standard mesh XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS-XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

… I wasn’t exactly dressed for adventuring… wearing my 10L Emerald Couture Dk Olive heels from the Cart Wash Sale (which fit Slink, TMP, Maitreya, and Belleza feet)… but that didn’t stop me.

I knew when I saw the sign on that airplane that someone had spray painted, “Do epic shit” that it was time to step out of my comfort zone and step into adventure… even if I was wearing a dress. So I crossed through the broken down fence to the crash site and wandered in.

We all bleed the same color. 2

Once inside, I explored the wreckage. It was littered with “treasures” and things I wanted to see. There was some graffiti that caught my eye and seemed important to remember: “We all bleed the same colour.” Yeah… isn’t that the truth. So many forget that in their everyday lives as they walk down the street. It’s a good motto to live under the moon by.

It had me fingering my new free texture change Lotus Moon necklace from Moondance Boutique. It was part of a matched set that included earrings too… as well as a bunch of beautiful rings, but I’d left the rings at home. I managed to get it as a group gift (the group was free to join) and I was tickled pink about it…

… even if I wasn’t dressed for adventure.

Beach Therapy

Beach Therapy

I can rest anywhere…

I was told to take it easy but wasn’t told to stay home. So, I’m hitting the beach to relax and enjoy the view. From here, I can watch the waves, the boats the birds and the occasional bunny that passes by. 🙂 Today, I’m wearing more 10L finds from The Wash Cart Sale. As I passed the Emerald Couture cart, the Men’s Teal Tank Top and the  Turtles Beach Trunks  caught my eye.  At just 10L each I couldn’t pass them up.  Another Cart Sale find is the Sky Blue Summer Slip Ons from Roped Passions. I’m all about inexpensive footwear and there are several styles to choose from for just 10L each.

Tiar a new one…

I’m also wearing the latest Male FabFree group gift from Tiar. David’s Necklace is FREE to our FabFree members. All you have to do to pick up this gift is,you will need to have your Fabulously Free in SL inworld group tag activated (It’s free to join!).  To join the group, copy and past the following link into local chat in your SL viewer and click the link in local chat – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .

Lounging in Style…

Getting comfy can sometimes be a chore in itself. I was lucky enough to come across the Cushioned Poolside Lounger and the Poolside Umbrella for just 10L each at the EC Designs cart at The Wash. The lounger comes with many poses to find that comfy spot you’ve been seeking. Soaking up the sun never felt so good.
