Feeling Erratic

Erratic

Hello Fabulouses!  What a weekend it was for me in RL.  My hard drive failed in my computer, and then I ran into technical difficulties with installing the new one.  Fortunately, once I was able to return to SL, there were no problems there.  Ripley and I quickly got back into the swing of hunting for budget friendly fashions, and discovered this sleek button front frock to share with our favorite readers.

Pretty in Purple (or Whatever Color You Choose)

My curve-hugging mini dress today is the latest free group gift from Erratic.  Featuring short sleeves, and a buttoned closure, this little number is quite sassy with a few of its fasteners undone.  It comes complete with a color change HUD with 12 texture options, just in case violet is not your style.  The fabric has a soft sheen with realistic folds, and I was quite pleased with the flattering fit. It is designed only for the Maitreya mesh body.  To add this beauty to your inventory, simply switch over to the Erratic group tag (there is a 99L join fee), teleport to the Erratic shop, and make your way over to the “Risque” section.  There, you’ll find the group gift vendor, which will deliver the dress with one quick click.

Crossing Our Fingers (and Paws)

Here’s hoping my new hard drive has a long and productive life, and that you have a wonderful week ahead.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

I Wear My Heart On My Socks

Snapshot_006Hey there Fabulouses!  It’s a long weekend for me, and I’m taking it easy with a cup  of tea and some comfy attire to catching up on emails, skimming through gossip on facebook and pinning a bunch of crafty things that I’ll probably never actually do.

Pull Your Socks Up

Ok, I’ll admit it…  I did steal another one of his shirts.  What can I say – it’s so soft, and it still smells like him (sighs), but these adorable Lea Socks in both red and white versions are courtesy of  C’est La Vie as they have just added them to the ever growing VIP group gift shelf.  As a bonus, this group is free to join!  These “love”ly little socks are compatible with system bodies and several different mesh bodies as shown on the vendor ad below.

Hope you have a super chill day too!

Risqué

Snapshot_005
Hi there Fabulouses! Erratic, who is known for some of the sexiest, best fitting lingerie out there has a new group gift in store for their inworld group members!  This group is 100L to join, but I would have paid much more than that for this hot item, so it was a no brainer for me, and now I can look forward to future gifts by staying in the group too!

Get Risqué

If you like the sexy bralette I am wearing today, you can teleport over to Erratic and head straight to the Risqué Luxury Lingerie section where you can pick up their new group gift that includes this very feminine and foxy, made for Maitreya top that could be worn as a sheer top or as lingerie with your favourite panties.  It fits so snug to the body, that it appears to be applied right on, but it is indeed mesh.

Get Risqué in Colour

In my photo I am showing you the noir version, but it comes in all of the colours listed below:

  • Noir
  • Crimson
  • Frost
  • Ivory
  • Lilac
  • Mint
  • Plum
  • Rose

How to get your gift…

Either activate your Erratic group tag, or click the gift sign and look for the link in local chat to join.

TIP:  If you are ever having trouble joining a group that a group gift is set to (depending on your viewer – I am on Firestorm), instead of searching around for a group join sign, you can simply right click your mouse and “edit” the group gift giver.  In the General Tab you can find which group the gift is set to.  Click on that group and join it!  This doesn’t work every time…  but most times it does :).

My birthday lazy-day, in leather and pearls!

Howdy Fabulistas!! So, normally, I would be at my RL job right about now, on this dreary (for me) fall day. However, it is my RL birthday, and so I have taken today off! Since the RL weather is not very nice for myself, I thought I would find a pretty spot here in SL, and enjoy a good book, all while showing off a few goodies for all of you.

fallread1

If you all recall, Tiana did a lovely post a while back about Ricielli’s current hunt, the Say Goodbye to the Old Store hunt, where she showed off a few of the prizes. When I saw that post, I ran right over to grab a few pieces for myself, and immediately fell in love with the purple leather jacket. I have to admit, I have been living in it for a few days now! The jacket is mesh, in all the standard sizes, as well as a fit mesh version, and it is materials enabled, so there is a great sheen to it. You can find this one in balloon #7, and, as with all of the prizes, it will set you back a totally reasonable L$15. I really love that with all of the Ricielli hunts, there is always a board with a picture of all the prizes, as well as their corresponding #, so if you can only pick out a few, you are sure to get exactly what you wanted.

The other goody I’ve got to show you is the current group gift from Maxi Gossamer. The Blood Pearl Daisy Necklace and matching Ring are available in store, free for group members, and the group is free to join. This was released just before Halloween, and it definately has a gothy/vampy feel to it, but as you can see, it can be worn with any look you like. Oh, and just a little extra tidbit of info, take a look around the store, as there is a 50% off sale on select items, happening right now. You can never have too much jewelry, right?

Okee dokee, that is all for me for now, but, I will probably be back later today…since I can do whatever I want today 🙂 Until then, TTFN!

Hipster is, as Hipster does….whatever that means

Good evening Fabulouses!! Or morning, depending on where in the world you are 🙂 Well, it is evening for me, and as I sit in my sweltering living room, I thought I would try to take my mind off of how much like a sauna my house will be with the heat wave my area is going to experience this week, by showing you my Hipster look.

CoffeeHouseHipster1

My look was completely inspired by the newest free, Reign group gift. The group was recently free to join for a short while, with the temptation of a free pair of shoes if they hit a certain number before closing up free entry. As a little thank you to all the new people who joined, as well to the current members who pushed, pulled and dragged everyone they knew to join, KenadeeCole, one of the owner’s/creator’s for Reign, sent out this cute little texture change Hello Hipster Necklace. You get a hud with 4 different colours to change the ‘Hello’ to, and I really like the simplicity of the design. If you hurry, and aren’t already in the group, I just checked, and, as of 10PM SLT (Monday), it’s still free to join.

CoffeeHouseHipster2

My next choice had to be glasses. No self-respecting hipster would be caught without their glasses on. While I have a few pairs in my inventory from days past when I always had glasses on, I wanted something new, and a little less sleek/modern. My favourite place to search, the Marketplace, did not let me down! The Mad Nerd Glasses, by Mad Mesh, were the first pair to pop up in my search, and lucky me, they were only L$9! Score! You get several different colours in both plain, and checkered versions, and even better, they are totally mod, so you can make them any colour you need.

Sticking with my accessories, I picked up these super adorable Hot and Cold Marshmallow earrings by Pink Acid at the current Candy Shop round, and for only L$50. Seriously, the expressions on their faces, so cute, though I do feel a little bad for the hot marshmallow, he doesn’t look like he is enjoying the heat at all. Kinda like me…LOL.

CoffeeHouseHipster3

I think, my favourite finds of my whole outfit though, are the * [BE]lieve – Black Urban Hipsta cat blazer with T-shirt, and * [BE]lieve – Hipster Studded Triangles Shorts. Both of these were finds on the Marketplace, with the Blazer- T-shirt combo setting me back a total of L$20, and the shorts were only L$10. How could I say no to either, especially when there is a cat print involved 😛  Both pieces are mesh, coming in standard sizes, though I will warn you that I had to go up a size in the shorts, wearing a L instead of my usual M, but the L fits perfectly, and the M Blazer sits over the shorts without any part breaking through. I don’t know if the creator made these 2 to go together, but they work so well together, that it sure feels like it was meant to be. Love when that happens! Make sure you take a peek at all the other items from * [BE]lieve, as all their stuff is well priced, nothing over L$50, and great looking.

So, how do I look? Am I hipster enough? I am the type of person that I just wear what I like, not really paying attention to whether I fit into a certain group or not, and it works for me. Truthfully though, this look of mine is going to be saved and worn over and over, that is the sign of a great outfit. I hope you all agree 🙂

Until next time, TTFN *waves*

Behaving Erratically

Erratic

You too can behave all erratic today!  Swing from lamp posts, dance on taxis, whatever you like!  But first…  you must visit the Erratic Mainstore and pick up your free group gift that includes the geometric printed top and matching cut-out pants.  The group is free to join, and it will give you access to future gifts and specials as well.  Don’t stop there!  Head to Eluzions too and pick up the Silka Earrings that are priced at just 5L.  They are also geometric shaped, and match great with the Erratic group gift – even though it’s not erratic to put them together… since they match.  I tried to be all erratic, but it’s just not my nature. <sighs>

er·rat·ic/iˈratik/

Adjective:
Not even or regular in pattern or movement; unpredictable.
Noun:
A rock or boulder that differs from the surrounding rock and is believed to have been brought from a distance by glacial action.
