Pretty in Plaid

Pretty in Plaid

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  After a visit to the vet today, Ripley is snoozing by my side as I type this post.  All the excitement just wore him out.  Actually, he kind of looks like I felt after my flu shot earlier this week…  Poor boy!  At least he doesn’t need any more shots for awhile.  Before we headed out to the pet doc, the pupster and I discovered a free group gift to share with you.

Rich Hues for Autumn

My Fall Dress from Sevyn East features a black sleeveless sweater tucked into a loosely pleated plaid skirt that is topped off with bow tied at the waist.  One of my favorite outfits back in high school included a skirt very similar to this one, so as soon as I saw this beauty, I knew I had to have it!  I really love the deep colors, which are perfect for fall.  Although it looks like this frock is composed of separate pieces, it is actually all-in-one.  With sizes for classic avatars in addition to two mesh body versions, this free gift is a great addition to your fall wardrobe.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport over to Sevyn East, activate the group tag (don’t worry – it’s completely free to join!) and tap the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya

Once I am able to rouse Ripley from his well-deserved slumber, we will travel around the grid, and locate another Fabulous Find to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Oh baby…

Lush_001

It’s baaaaaack… that ever popular dirty little secret that we love to hunt for… the Hunt for Your Inner Slut Hunt! And do I have some hunt finds for you!

Oh baby…

I did my hopping around the grid for this hunt, but I ended up back home curled up on the edge of my bed in creamy lace, courtesy of @rOrO and their free white lingerie gift that is part of the hunt. You’ll get a pair of panties and a very sheer baby doll top that is split down the front to reveal your belly button. I had to do some strategic camera angles to even show this off at all! It even includes lace gloves in an omega applier (I forgot to put them on… doh!) but boy is this lingerie pretty!

Lingerie & panty sizes included:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Heels!

What do you think of my heels? I picked these up free as part of the hunt as well from Sevyn East. I failed to get a close up, but if you click on the picture to bring up flicker and then click for a close-up, you’ll see that my pink heels are covered with unicorns! How cute is that! I thought it was a perfect touch to go with my lingerie. These cute heels come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

Just make a stop by BlueMoon Enterprise which is housed inside of Silvan Moon Design and The White Armory. You’ll need to go inside the main-store of The White Armory, then find the BlueMoon Enterprise building inside. Once inside BlueMoon, make your way to their gift station. This gift is free with your group tag and the group is free to join as well! You’ll get the gown in several sizes, the fitted mesh gloves (they fit my Maitreya body perfectly), the high neck collar with attached necklace, and the shoulder pieces.

I’m not grumbling about this gown!

Devil with the Red Dress On_001

Oh, oh, oh, I’m going to have a ball tonight! And I’m dressed for ballroom style! Do you need a formal gown and only have a single linden to your name? I have just the stop for you!

Grumbling… not!

I’m not grumbling about this hunt gift from Grumble! It’s a beautiful formal ballgown in red that is also just simple enough to pass as a “Sunday Dress” for less formal occasions. You can pick it up at the Grumble main-store as part of the Jerky Turky Hunt for 1L. Your clue is: “I think i saw a feather in the cash register.” Look for the orange feather and when you find it, pay the 1L and the dress is yours!

Dress sizes available:

  • Classic Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

November Rain

Drip_001

Drip… drip… drip… you can almost hear the rain falling on the rooftops of the city. The lake nearby washes up against the sandy shores and the birds flock in for bread crumbs now that it’s turning cold. Burn baby burn.

Or Byrne.

Because Byrne Style has put out one hot number of a free group gift. Pick up this Drippy Tunic dress as the free November group gift with your Byrne group tag and you won’t notice the November cold. It comes in two colors: white (shown) and silver (not shown). You also get the standard mesh body sizes: Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza.

A bonus.

While your at the main-store be sure to hit the subscriber and pick up the free subscriber gift, because it is just as nice. And bring a fella along, because there is a group gift out for the guys too. They just need to don the group tag.

And let that November rain fall. I’m ready.

The Hero Inside

Closed for Business Open for Hero...ing

It was a dark and dangerous alley and all the stores were closed for business… but I had work to do… hero-ing it up and all.

A Dirty Little Secret

It all began with a hunt at Eclectic Stars. The Dirty Little Secrets Hunt to be exact. It has two paths… a 50L hunt path and a 1L hunt path. I stumbled upon the 1L hunt path by chance and ended up with a super hero batman studded blindfold for just 1L at Eclectic Stars. All you have to do is hunt down the little black key with it’s red ribbon. (There’s also a Golden Lasso blindfold in the box.) I knew it was time to find the super hero inside!

The Hero Inside

That led me to the marketplace in search of the perfect shirt. Inodoro provided and for just 5L! I got this batman t-shirt, perfect for every day hero wear, and in the most popular mesh body sizes. The package includes sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. For 5L, it was a steal… errr… deal.

Happy hero-ing!

Love Me, November…

Love Me, November...

I love November. It’s not any of the holidays associated with it. It’s the month itself. To me it is sort of a lull between rushes of different holidays. I like the beginning of the month before the madness of all the winter holidays set in.

I spent the morning hunting down both beautiful places to visit… and some time on the trail of the Bittersweet Hunt. The Bittersweet Hunt lasts until November 25, giving you plenty of time to get in on the prizes. It includes female, male, and unisex gifts at the various locations, depending upon where you go.

First stop…

Trashed main-store where I hunted down the skull icon for the Bittersweet hunt and paid just 1 little Linden for these amazing Denim Love Shorts! They are covered in cute pink hearts and the pockets hang down past the cut off edges and they come in all your favorite mesh body sizes: Classic (XS – XL); eBody; TMP; Tonic (Fine, Curvy); Maitreya Lara; Slink (Hourglass & Physique), Belleza (Freya, Isis, & Venus).

Free buggy rides…

Then I was off for a free buggy ride at the Land of Owls, a sim design by Cica Ghost. The sim has a sort a sort of haunted feeling (not like Halloween haunted) but like surreal haunted… and there are buggies around the sim that you can hop into and will take you around on a free tour of this amazing build. So take a teleport down and check this one out!

Instant Hair Crush

Exile1L
Like Falling Autumn Leaves

You know what else falls this Autumn?  The price on the brand new Bento Instant Crush Hairstyle by Exile in their marketplace store – all the way down to 1L!  Their usual “all or nothing pack” price is 1250, so this is a really sweet savings.  This long pulled back hairstyle with side swept bangs includes a bento version as well as ALL the colour pack HUDS!

To Swish Or Not To Swish

The bento version is actually a lot of fun to watch swishing and moving around with my avatar, although if you prefer no movement, the regular hair is included as well.
