‘Cause I Know That…

Down on the Dock

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Happy Friday to you!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to tell you about a free outfit (including the boots) that we discovered over at the !Soul store.  It’s another warm weather dress, just in time for summer.

…It’s Delicate

Featuring an off the shoulder style with a wide belt and full skirt, this floral frock has pops of red and orange blossoms scattered across a teal background.  Although the gift does not include versions for mesh avatars, I was able to get a terrific fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara body.  My cute, flat boots, which are decorated with golden studs, coordinate beautifully with the waistband.  There will be no need to worry about finding the perfect shoes to wear with this free ensemble!  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the !Soul group, but there is no join fee, so the Delicate Satin Dress will cost you exactly zero Linden dollars.

Sizes Included:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Includes alpha layers for boots, dress and boots/dress combined

I hope you have a fantastic weekend!  The pupster and I plan to spend time scouting around to see what other Fabulous Finds we can discover to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Among the Wild Posies

Jumpsuit

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Sunday Evening to you!  The pupster and I found two free items to share with you tonight and help get your Monday off to a wonderful start.

Let’s Jump Right In!

I picked up my Donna Jumpsuit over at The Free Dove as a gift from DM.  This off-the-shoulder style features a loose bodice section layered over a slim waistline, which really flatters your figure.  The trousers portion of this outfit are comfortably loose.  I am quite fond of this pale pink floral pattern, but if that’s not your cup of tea, the designer tucked a HUD inside the folder with two other texture options.  Versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars are included as well.  To add this suit to your wardrobe, you do have to be a member of The Free Dove group, but there is no join fee, so it’s completely free.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
    • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
    • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
    • Maitreya
    • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Daisy

That Finishing Touch

With the complex flowery texture on my clothing, I wanted to keep my accessories simple, yet beautiful.  I headed over to Poeme and collected another free group gift, the Daisy Bead Earrings.  These delicate baubles feature your choice of silver or gold metal and six colors for the beads.  Of course, I went with pink to coordinate with my jumpsuit, but with the included texture HUD, I will be able to customize these earrings to match a variety of outfits.  To add the Daisy Bead Earrings to your SL jewelry box, you’ll need to be a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group, but since there is no join fee, you can pick up these gems for free.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Oh Henlo, Fren

Hello Friend

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Monday!  After doing a little shopping, the pupster and I went for a walk this afternoon and made a new friend over at the Haraiki Bay sim.  If you are looking for a lovely, tranquil place to explore, I’d highly suggest a visit.  I’d also recommend a trip over to TRS Designs, which is where I picked up my new denim mini dress as a free group gift.

As Blue as the Summer Sky

The Camila Dress features a low cut back, slender shoulder straps and a mesh insert at the neckline.  Vertical seams and slits on either hip add visual interest to the faded denim fabric.  This little number hugs all your curves and is perfect for warmer temperatures.  There are versions for classic as well as mesh avatars in the folder, so there is something for everyone inside.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the TRS Designs group, but there is no join fee, so the dress is completely free.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Catching a Tropical Vibe

Tropical Vibes

Hello Fabulouses!  It was a chilly, dreary, rainy day where I am in RL, but I was lucky enough to be able to escape to SL and hang out on a warm, lush sim wearing what seemed like a golden ray of sunshine.  The best part was I picked up this frock as a free group gift.

How Wonderful Yellow Is

Featuring a sleeveless design, a high waistline and a full, floral skirt, the Sofia Summer Dress from Ma’De is so very pretty!  It provided just the spark I needed to brighten up my day.  Although you might think there are two shoulder straps because of the styling of my hair, there’s actually only one, which adds a bit of sauciness.  I really like the slight ruffle on the hemline and the folds in the fabric because they add visual interest and realism to the design.  To scoop up this mood-uplifting frock for your inventory, you need to be a member of the Teleport Hub group, which has a 10L join fee, but membership opens up the opportunity to pick up a plethora of free gifts across the grid.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Today I Am Choosing Serenity

Saturdays Are For Taking it Easy

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is going well.  After cleaning up around the house this morning, Ripley and I headed to SL to see if we could discover any Fabulous Finds to share with our favorite readers.  Over at Alias, we came across a complete outfit that you can pick up as a free group gift.  Since it comes with a texture change HUD, this is like getting ten outfits in one!

Casual, Comfortable Serenity

For me, weekends are all about kicking back and taking it easy.  Today was no exception.  I pulled on the faded jeans and cute sleeveless top from my latest acquisition, then headed out to explore the Lakeside sim over at Roleplay Heaven.  While Ripley sniffed around, I found the perfect spot to relax and take a snapshot of the Serenity V1 outfit from Alias.  Featuring comfy denim fabric, snap pockets and vertical accents in the center of each leg, these flared pants hug your curves in all the right places.  The loose fitting tank top has a low cut in the back and is held up with spaghetti style straps.  The generous designer included shoes, which you can’t see due to the angle of my photo, as well as coordinating texture-change HUDs for the top and the shoes packed with ten prints in varying hues.  Although there is no alpha layer, sizes for classic avatars as well as versions for mesh body styles are tucked inside the folder.  To pick up this outfit for yourself, you  need to be a member of the MLM Frees and Offers group, which has a teensy 5 Linden dollar join fee, but this provides the opportunity for you to collect free gifts from a variety of designers all around the grid.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP and Tonic

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Ready for Back to Work? Yeah, No

Yeah, No

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I went camping over the weekend, and I have to tell you, when it was time to come home and get ready for work again, my shirt spoke my thoughts clearly.  Was I ready to head back?  Yeah, no.  I can’t be the only one who feels like that after a long weekend, so if you’ve ever had the same sentiment, you might want to pick up this free group gift for yourself and let your shirt do the talking.

An Eyeluring Tank

I was able to scoop up this soft cotton tank for free just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  It features a dark gray strip on each of the side panels, the perfect sarcastic response to a silly question, and a cut that is sure to flatter your figure.  Since the bold text really stands out against the snowy white background, everyone will read your message loud and clear.  The folder contains versions for a variety of mesh body types.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport to the Eyelure store, activate your Fab Free group tag, and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

And That’s Not All

I also picked up my Glaice leggings as a free group gift…this time from Revelation.  These shorts are packed with plenty of detail such as rolled up cuffs joined with lacing, a shiny belt, frayed areas on the pockets and a curve-hugging fit.  I can see myself wearing these throughout the spring and summer months.  The gift includes a texture change HUD that allows you to select from six options for colors for the jeans ranging from blues and grays to brown.  To add these versatile leggings to your inventory, you need to be a member of the Revelation Store group, but there is no join fee, so they are completely free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Altamura
  • Ebody
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

This is My Happy Place

Finding Sanctuary

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Sunday!  Ripley and I are taking a quick break from the Valentine’s Hunt over at Justice to show you another of the free prizes from the hunt.  I know I said the Opal Tank was my favorite, but maybe, just maybe, I’ve found a new fave!  I don’t know whether this qualifies as a bathing suit, or lingerie, but the pupster decided it was time to play with his seagull friends, and led me to the shore on Sanctuary Isle…. so a bathing suit it is!

Red Hot

Harley, Valentine’s Hunt prize #8 at the Justice store, is a skimpy, super sexy bathing suit (or piece of lingerie) in a gorgeous crimson hue.  Complete with gleaming silver chain accents, this spicy little number is just right for a day of fun whether inside or out.  Best of all, after just a small investment of time, you can pick it up completely for free!  All you have to do is locate the heart shaped hunt object concealed somewhere in the store.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

After we enjoy the picnic lunch we’ve brought along on our beach getaway, Rip and I plan to return and try to ferret out some more of those elusive hearts.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Searching for a Beautiful Heart

In My Heart

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Have you heard about the hunt going on over at the Justice store?  Ripley caught wind of it, and we decided to check it out.  There are 12 hearts hidden around the store priced at just zero linden dollars each.  The pupster and I haven’t yet located all of the hunt items, but the top I am wearing in my photo today is my favorite prize so far!

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The Opal Tank is a cute little number which features super thin spaghetti straps, a satiny sheen and a belt to emphasize your waistline.  A generous hem with softly pleated folds fit perfectly over my capris.  The crimson hue (one of my favorite colors) is just right for Valentine’s day!  The free hunt package, which happens to be prize number 12, contains versions for a number of mesh body types.  For just an investment of time spent hunting in the Justice store, you’ll come away with a vibrant top that I’m sure will become a warmer weather favorite!  The hunt runs until Valentine’s Day, so you have plenty of time to teleport to the shop and do a little sleuthing for yourself.  If you get stumped, you can find hints on the Justice web page, here.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Lasso My Heart for Infinity

What would a Valentine’s Day outfit be without a heart shaped pendant?  I found exactly what I was looking for over at the Grumble store for just 59 Linden dollars.  With a bright red heart dangling from a dark cord decorated with the infinity symbol, this bauble coordinated well with my new top.  If you’d prefer a different color, you can pick up a silver, pink or gold version for just 59 Linden each.  Although it’s just right for V-day, I know I’ll wear this necklace over and over throughout the year.

Back to the Hunt…

Ripley and I are going to head back to Justice and see if we can discover the rest of the elusive hearts scattered throughout the store.  Wish us luck!  Until next time, happy hunting!

Stopping to Smell the Roses

Oh Spring.... I'm Ready for You!

Hello there, Fabulouses!  I hope your weekend is going well.  Ripley and I returned today to one of our favorite sims for photography, Mystical Fae, to capture a snapshot of a cute little dress that I picked up as a free gift just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group.

Oh Spring… I’m Ready for You!

I know, I know…….I’m a little premature with my longing for spring, but a girl can dream, right?  When the elusive warmer weather arrives, I’ll be all set for a night on the town in my new frock.  The Ijalu dress from Artizana has a bodice that features a plunging neckline and criss-cross straps in a luminous dark gray solid fabric.  The coordinating skirt is double layered with a silvery, semi-transparent print atop a solid underskirt.  With its flirty length, this little number would be perfect for a date night.  The folder contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, so there is something in there for everyone.  Best of all, you can pick it up for free!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

The scent of these roses is just so heavenly!  It’s so tempting to gather a few of them for my table!  I think Ripley and I will stop by the florist shop, and bring home a little bit of spring.  Until next time, happy shopping!
