Uptown Girl

Uptown Girl

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to meet a friend for coffee at this shop in the City of Templemore.  With my companion running late, I had plenty of time to snap a photo of my latest outfit to share with you all.

Sleek and Elegant

My entire outfit today, with the exception of the boots and cell phone, are free gifts from Rowne.  The Alla Crepe Top and Xinyu Trousers brought to mind a sophisticated, uptown girl look (tune).  I like the high waist of the pants, and the short cropped top, which left one arm bare while the opposite was encased in a full-length sleeve.  I thought it made for an interesting visual contrast.  The pants emphasized my long, slender figure, and at first, I had a hard time finding footwear that would work with them.  My slink feet and shoes poked through far above the hemline of the trousers, and I couldn’t adjust where they attached on my legs.  Uh-oh…

An Uh-Oh Followed by a Sigh of Relief

After adjusting my hover height to be slightly above the ground, I dug down deep in my inventory, and found some old-style boots that I could adjust and slide down to the bottom of the cuffs of the trousers.  It worked like a charm, and I was quite pleased with the outcome. Unfortunately, when I went to include the landmarks for my post, I discovered that the boots in my full-body shot were no longer available.  I did, however, find an alternate pair from Blackburns (shown in the close up picture below) that worked just as well, and these were only 29L on the Marketplace!  Phew!

An Entire Outfit, But That’s Not All…

In addition to the pantsuit, Rowne also has the Jane Cat Eye Sunglasses, Bon Bon Earrings, and Buckett bag set out as free gifts for group members.  I felt they all coordinated beautifully, so I combined them in one look.  The end result:  classy sophistication!  Although the group has a 350L join fee, the numerous gifts available balance out the initial expense.

What’s Included in All the Gifts:  

  • Alla Crepe Crop Top and Xinyu Crepe Trousers fit for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique
  • Buckett Bag (with two pose options)
  • Cat Eye Sunglasses in Onyx (they were originally on top of my head; I edited them to be on my face)
  • PW BonBon earrings in Lilac (shown) and Hunter

Here’s a close up of the Blackburn boots.  They’re cute, aren’t they?

Well, that’s a wrap!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Freeze Frame

Freeze Frame

Smile for the camera, Fabulouses!  In my post yesterday, {HERE} I told you about a gift from Legendaire, and also mentioned the fact that there are a ton of other outfits set out for lucky group members.  I decided to show you another one of the free items up for grabs in the shop.  This cheery tunic is bound to raise your spirits with its botanical motif and jaunty black and yellow color scheme.  If you’d prefer a red and orange print, a green striped background splashed with large magenta hibiscus flowers, or perhaps a teal and black paisley pattern, you’re in for a sweet surprise, because this versatile present also includes a texture change HUD.  With long sleeves designed to shield your arms from UV rays, and a playful peek at a bikini top underneath, you will be all set for an impromptu trip to the beach.

What’s Included:

  • Fitted mesh
  • Summer Tunic HUD (with four texture options)
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Brienne bag (not worn in picture)
  • Brienne flip flops for Slink flat feet

Some Beach, Somewhere

Thanks for the suggestion to travel to the seaside for a romantic evening, Carson!  Ripley and I had a great time snapping pictures as the sun went down.  What a relaxing, perfect way to end a manic Monday at work! (tune)

Stopping for a Cuppa

coffee 2_001

Always a hot… hunt.

The Women’s Stuff Hunt is one of my favorite hunts. I always love surfing through my inventory after a few stops along the trail. I happened to pick a stop – Mimi’s Choice to be exact – and head home to unpack and was thrilled with the beautiful form fitting flowery gown I unpacked.

This dress nice enough for a date night out, but casual enough for coffee at a cafe. It’s sure to be perfect for any occasion, and it includes all the popular sizes such as:

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza

Shoes make a match.

If you hurry, the [MUSE] and NSP Florals March group gift is still out. It’s a lovely gift well worth picking up. You surely must have noticed my gorgeous shoes! These hipster wedges fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza Feet, and include a color change hud with 6 different colors to match your outfits. Hurry! With March being over, I’m not sure how much longer this gift will be out to pick up!

In the Forest of My Dreams

Meet Me At Midnight

Hello there, Fabulouses!  At the Mystical Fae Forest, Ripley and I found an enchanted harp surrounded by softly glowing candles.  As we stepped closer, the wind began to pluck the strings, playing a lovely, haunting tune.  The pupster and I stood entranced as even the local reindeer paused, and tilted their heads to listen to the melody.  It was a magical night in a forest of dreams.

A Fabulous Frock for a Legendary Evening

Emma is the latest free group gift from Legendaire.  With a solid-colored bodice and hem, accented with bright swirls of paisley, this maxi dress is slender at the waist to emphasize my figure, but ends with a comfortably loose, slightly ruffled skirt.   Narrow straps left my shoulders free to feel the caress of moonlight on my skin.  The gift box includes a HUD which offers a choice of 3 textures.  I was torn between the dark blue and magenta floral swirls, a bold black and white pattern with pops of pale teal, and this red, white and teal paisley pattern.  Every one of the options was equally appealing.  Although joining the Legendaire group will set you back 99L, there is an entire wall in the shop packed with 12 group gifts, all free for members.  A teleporter on the floor will whisk you off to a plethora of other outfits also set out free for group members.  I considered 99L a fair investment for so many generous gifts.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Emma HUD with 3 texture options
  • Emma flats (not shown)

All Good Things Come to an End

As the clock approached midnight, my canine Prince Charming nudged my hand, breaking the spell, and reminding me that this Cinderella has to get up bright and early for RL work tomorrow.  Bidding the reindeer and the spellbinding harp farewell, Ripley and I journeyed home.  Until my next post, here’s wishing you magical encounters, and happy shopping!

The things I do for Love

Snapshot_001

The Honey-do List…

She nagged asked me repeatedly to make her a new vegetable garden on the other side of the horse pasture. The only way to get her to stop nagging asking repeatedly was to finally cave in happily comply with her wishes. I decided I would mow off the patch before breaking up the sod and tilling the ground.  I asked her exactly where she wanted her new garden as I was pushing the mower in the general direction. “Let me show you!” she happily exclaimed, then she perched herself on top of the handle, guiding me like a lookout in a ship’s crow’s nest. <sigh>  The things I do for Love…

Her supervisor attire…

The summer floral Cotton Top by 1Hundred is available at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L.  In the pack you’ll find both the peach that she is displaying and also pink. I was told to mention that  “This is a sweet top that is compatible with system bodies, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Omega, Wowmeh, and Lola.” Her words, not mine.

His slave work attire….

I am appropriately wearing the kwitchurbitchin Novelty Tee by Park Place that I found for just $10L at The Wash Cart Sale. Also found at The Wash Cart Sale is the b/w Tailored Shorts by Dark Water Designs, also just $10L. My Baseball Cap is a FREE subscriber gift from Argrace.

Follow My Lead….

The pose, Follow My Lead, is a FREE group gift from Drunk-Panda. The Drunk Panda group is FREE to join. (After all this work, I want to be a drunk panda too!) The pose does not come with a lawnmower, but I was lucky enough to win the Spring Garden Green Lawnmower from the gacha at {what next}, which is just $50L per play.

On The Fringe

Snapshot_005
Good morning Fabulouses! The Springtacious Cart Sale continues for one more week and we are still finding so many wonderful 10L finds to share with you here on the FabFree Blog! Today I put together a casual boho outfit to show off a couple things from the Loordes of London Cart I think you might like.

Both for 10L!

The Loordes of London “On The Fringe” Outfit including the shirt/sweater combo and the jeans are available in a few different colours for just 10L a set!  I actually couldn’t believe my own eyes when I saw the display.  I clicked on the top, bought the top and then clicked on the jeans and bought the jeans… but what I really did was buy the whole set twice because you get both pieces for 10L and it’s all one long vendor! lol.  Silly me.  I should pay closer attention…

Sizes included:

  • Top & Jeans – XXS-L mesh + alpha layer
  • Top – Slink Physique
  • Top – Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Shine It up

You can also pick up The Lunar Eclipse Sunglasses at the same display for 10L each in a couple of different colours if you want to shine your look up a touch.

Gorgeous on a Gray Day

Photo 23

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I discovered another Fabulous Find at The Cart Wash sale to share with you.  I scooped up my strappy Beautiful Gray Day dress for only 10L at the Emerald Couture stand.  This knee-length frock offers a figure hugging fit that ends with a ruffled hem.  It features a light gray background topped with a delicate floral pattern.  With a variety of sizes and mesh body options, this budget-friendly dress is sure to fit your avatar.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh Body Compatibility:  Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Slink Hourglass
  • Gray Day Shoes (not shown in picture)

Half Off?  Count Me In!

Although this amazing sale doesn’t quite drop the price to the 75L mark, I did want to pass along the news of the 50 percent off sale over at Exile.  All in-world styles, except Gatchas, are marked half off until April 7th.  As soon as I read the note card announcing the special offer, I clicked the teleport button, only to see the dreaded “Region is full” message.  I persisted, and finally after multiple attempts, arrived.  I picked up several new hairdo’s, including the Class Act style featured above.  For only 125L, you can purchase regular color packs, fusion packs for 140L, and the All or Nothing pack for 625L.  It was well worth the effort required to enter the sim!

Those Extra Little Touches

At the Rispetto Designs cart at The Wash, I picked up these glossy, dark gray Amour Signature Shawnda earrings for only 10 little Linden dollars.  They coordinated perfectly with the hue of the roses scattered across my dress.  The triple hoop design provided just the right amount of bling to complement my outfit.

Treat Yourself…

… to a little retail therapy.  This round of The Cart Wash is absolutely packed with bargains galore, and I hope you get a chance to teleport over to the Wash and check out all the booths for yourself.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

No Ride

Snapshot_005
Hello there FabFree Readers! With my current RL temperature at -26c (yes… in March), and the snow continuing to fall, I was in search of some Second Life sunshine therapy.  My ride was in the shop…  and I can’t seem to find his keys anywhere, so it seems I will be hanging around home today which is just fine with me.  I have had enough adventure for one week.

Hey There Lisa

I thought I’d stop by here and tell you about the super cute sundress that Sevyn East has recently rezzed out as a group gift set to the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group (which is always free to join!).  The Lisa Denim Dress appears to look like a skirt and a top, but actually it is one piece so you’ll be dressed in just one click! Included with the dress is a texture change HUD that allows for a few different denim/white/solid/print options to mix and match.  You’ll be able to wear this dress, and wear it again differently each time!

Sizes Available:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Kiss & Make Up

Snapshot_001Hello Fabulouses :).  What a relief!  As you can see, he has almost forgiven me for yesterdays swamping adventures.  Aside from the mantra he is repeating to himself out loud with his eyes closed, over and over again: “I am patient and understanding, I am patient and understanding, I am patient and understanding“, I think he’s doing ok with it.  His jeep is a little soggy, but will be ok after a day in the sun…  It may take just a few more kisses.

Actually…  the more I think about it, I feel…  If this is my punishment for stalling his jeep in a swamp, I may just do it again tomorrow!

Coming Together

Carson and I have collaborated on a blog entry so that we can share news about a couples matching Glam or Grunge Hunt prize and a really sweet couples pose that is available as a free group gift.  This post is packed full of freebies for both you and your sweetie.

For Her

On myself you can see me wearing the black and white Lauren Dress which is available as a free gift for the Glam or Grunge Hunt at Trashed.  This dress is available in several mesh and mesh body specific sizes, including an alpha.   Make sure to bring your guy with you, because there is a gift for him inside that hidden rose icon too!

For Him

Carson is displaying the Simon Shirt which is the male offering at Trashed for the Glam & Grunge Hunt.  He was also lucky enough to score the Drifter Jeans in rust for free on the lucky board while he was at Trashed which work very nicely with the top.
