Wandering in a Field of Flowers

Flirty Summer Style

Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.  I had a lovely weekend with my family in RL, and I hope you did as well!  My daughter surprised me with a mason jar full of small pieces of paper on which she had written reasons why she loves me.  It must have taken so long for her to make it, and I’m sure it will be a real pick me up on the days I’m feeling down.  RL aside, I’m excited to tell you about this sweet floral and denim outfit that I picked up as a free group gift.

Flirty Summer Style

AMUI’s bandeau style sleeveless top and maxi skirt are packed with details such as the ruffled trim on the shirt, an embroidered design near the edge, and dangling ties.  I really like the juxtaposition of worn denim and the flower patterned fabric.  Straightaway, the bright hues and cheery blooms caught my eye, and I knew I had to add the “Lindy” top and skirt to my summer wardrobe.  Luckily, it’s set out as a free group gift for members of the AMUI Group, and since the join fee was only 25L, it was a budget friendly fabulous find.  The package includes versions for popular mesh bodies, but no classic avatar styles.  Since the pieces can be worn separately, it will be fun to mix and match with other items of clothing in my inventory.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Ripley is raring to go for his evening walk, and since we had quite pleasant temperatures today, we’d better get out and enjoy it while we can.  Last week, we hit record high temperatures, so it’s nice to have a respite from the heat.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Butterfly Meadow

Butterfly Fields
Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is going well.  Just like Aline in her post {here}, I would love to attend Coachella, but the closest I will get is this meadow in Second Life.   It’s not even remotely similar to a cacti-studded location, but I get my fill of the desert in real life, so it’s all good!  At least I can enjoy the meandering butterflies and spring temperatures in an adorable free shirt.

A Little Bit Boho

This white and pink peasant top from Ever An’ Angel features long, flowing sleeves, a striped midsection, and a cute column of buttons topped off  by a jaunty bow.  I love way the off-the-shoulder style allows me to soak up some sun rays, and the generous cut provdes freedom of movement.  I opted to pair the aptly named Coachella top with capris in a blush pink shade, but I could have easily created another fun look with jeans or a flowing maxi skirt instead.  This flexible piece can go from uber casual to dressy, depending on how you accessorize.  The gift package includes varieties for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can scoop it up as a free gift just for being a member of the Ever An’ Angel group.  There is a 100L cost to join, but this one time fee makes you eligible for this and future group gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

As the sun has been setting behind me, the Pupster has started pacing back and forth.  He can only take so much of this sitting around, watching butterflies dance about.  This young whippersnapper is raring to go on his evening jaunt, so I’d better oblige.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Feeling Vibrant and Vivid

Vivi

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Isn’t this gown just gorgeous?  Ripley and I wandered over to MH Unique Design and discovered this shimmering frock as a free gift for members of the MH Unique Design group.  With spaghetti straps, an intricate design on the bodice, and its full, floor length hemline, the Vivi dress will have you elegantly clothed for that special night on the town.  The gift includes versions for classic as well as mesh bodies, so it’s sure to fit most avatars.  Since we are close to the end of the month, and it’s a group gift, I’m not sure how much longer it will be available.  If you like this gown as much as I do, I’d recommend heading over to the store soon.  Since the group is completely free to join, you can pick up this lovely gift for a song.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • 2 alpha layers
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

I Want It Painted Black

Let Your Light Shine

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness over the weekend, and set to work on the trail of the Paint It Black Hunt.  The prizes in this hunt cost just 5L each, and are inspired by The Rolling Stones, Rock N Roll, Grunge, Metal, Alt Music, Goth Music, and Rockabilly.  Since the hunt runs through February 28th, you still have plenty of time to track down some prizes for yourself.

A Nocturnal Black Rose

My adorable strapless mini dress from MishMash Fusion took us a *long* time to locate, but it sure was worth the investment of time and the 5L price tag.  With a richly textured fabric, ruffled skirt, and figure hugging fit, this frock is a hot little number!  I love the way it leaves your shoulders bare and allows a generous glimpse of your legs.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Standard Mesh in one size (includes alpha layer)
  • eBody Classic and Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

I’m in the Mood 

Our second stop on the hunt path was The Little Bat where we quickly located the unisex Mood Necklace.  When I was in school, mood jewelry was *the* item all the girls wore, and I have to admit, I still find the changing tint of the gemstones fascinating.  The circular pendant of this necklace only alters when you adjust the hue using the included 14 texture HUD.  I opted for a monochromatic color scheme for my ensemble tonight, so I kept the original black tone, but could have easily chosen an alternate shade.  For just 5L and the small amount of time spent searching, I came away with a versatile piece of jewelry that will coordinate with a variety of outfits.

New Locks

My up-swept pony hairstyle is the latest free group gift for members of the FABIA Mesh Hair store.  The Valentines style comes with a fat pack of colors including black and white, browns, blonde, red, and “unnatural” HUDs.  It features wispy side bangs that frame your face beautifully.  To pick up this item, you must be a member of the FABIA Mesh Hair group, which has a 100L join fee, but there are past group gifts still available, so you can get several new haircut styles for the fee.

The long weekend passed by so quickly in RL.  After the three days off, my pantry is sorted, completely organized in bins, and labeled.  I sure hope I can keep it that way!  If only my SL inventory was as organized.  Thank goodness for the search feature, otherwise I might never find things in there! Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

On the Fence

On the Fence

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Sunday evening!  Before our weekend ended, Ripley and I decided to pop back over to the Cart Sale at the Wash and spotted this casual blue striped top and black jeans outfit at the Artic Storm display.  I love the layered tank look (you can see a black shirt peeking out from behind the shoulder strap) and the cuffed jeans hugged all my curves.  The Joana outfit made me think of a lovely spring day, so the pupster and I headed over to Costa Bella to snap a photo in a field of wildflowers.  The package contained both fit mesh in a variety of sizes for the top and jeans, as well as versions for mesh bodies.  For just 10L, you will scoop up an entire outfit.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL for both top and jeans
  • Alpha layers for tank and jeans for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine (tank only)
  • TMP (tank only)

Here’s hoping you have a wonderful start to your work week.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Put on Your Red Dress, Baby!

Put on Your Red Dress, Baby

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I know mine was too short…lol.   We finally had some warmer weather here, and I was outside enjoying it in RL, so I was inspired to go for a stroll with Ripley in a field of wildflowers in Second Life.

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The arrival of more spring-like temperatures (even if short lived) also had me thinking of donning a sleeveless dress.  Lucky for me, Cremosas Store has this crimson little mini set out as a free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  With a low cut neckline and slender fit, this frock had me ready for a night on the town.  All I needed to do was apply some red lipstick, add a simple necklace, and slip into some slinky heels.  The simple design, smooth texture of the fabric, and deep hue showcased my curves.  With versions for mesh bodies as well as classic avatars, I’m sure you will find just the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Three Stripes

Keep Calm and Polish On

For just the perfect finishing touch, I picked up another free gift just for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The Three Stripe Nails from Inevitable Madness echoed the vivid hue of my frock.  I really liked how the designer created two accent nails with this black and red pattern and painted the rest jet black.  This touch added visual interest to my manicure.  The contrast of ebony and crimson makes such a vibrant combination.  The free gift package includes appliers for Maitreya as well as Omega.

I hope your work week is off to a smooth start tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sunday Sunshine

One Step at a Time

Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Sunday!  I hope you found some time to relax and recharge.  To close the weekend, Ripley and I are popping in to share two free items with you.  Just like Love did in her post {HERE}, I am enjoying some virtual spring weather while it’s a bit nippy in my neck of the woods in RL.  I sure am glad I can get some warm weather somewhere!

Introducing…. Teanna

I am always super thrilled to see the free monthly gift from the Truth Hair VIP group, and when I  opened January’s present, I immediately put on the new style…….and haven’t taken it off since!  With long tresses that fall halfway down your back in two layers, and a sweet side braid that tucks behind your ear, this style is just so soft and pretty!  There is a full fat pack of color options (happy dance time!) and a versatile stylist HUD, which enables you to adjust whether or not you have a braid, what side the braid is on, and whether you wear your hair in front of, or behind your shoulders.  There are soooo many options, which really is a blessing depending on the type of collar your shirt has, and how curvy your avi is.  Although there a 350L join fee, Truth Hawks is so generous each month, and the group features an active, friendly chat community as well.  I’ve included a close up picture below so you can see just how amazing this style is!

Teanna Close Up

Who’s the Lucky One?

When I was at Graffitiwear to pick up the 5,000 member gift (you can read about it in my post {HERE}), Ripley wandered off to explore upstairs.  I followed him, and discovered a Lucky Dip, but sadly, when I attempted to win a mani-pedi, the Kraken tried to pull me into the container, and all I received was the Booby prize – an old, dead fish that not even Loki, my cat, was interested in.  It *was* kind of funny to see my avatar with legs wriggling around in the air, though.  Perhaps you’ll have better luck than I did.  On the wall behind the evil sea monster, there is a members-only Lucky Board featuring the Denim Safari Shorts I am wearing in my main photo.  Fortunately, my luck changed, and I happily left the store with my new prize.  Featuring a high waistline, dangling ties, golden accents, and white stitching, the free shorts had me ready for warm, sunny skies.  Also included in the package, a texture change HUD allowed me to select from six shades of denim.  With classic and mesh body variations, they are sure to fit most avatars.  In order to win the Safari Shorts, you need to be a Graffitiwear Group member, but it only costs 5L to join (plus you can pick up the group gift and tap the Midnight Mania board as well), so it’s a budget-friendly way to add some warm weather wear to your wardrobe.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you have a fantastic start to your work week tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
