The Wash Cart Sale – The Dark Fae

It’s that time again! The Bi-Annual Wash Cart Sale! Yayyy. OK, first, I need to confess, I started looking around before the sale officially started, as so many of the vendors already had their wares out. Whew! Glad I got that out of my system. Now, you all know me and shoes..so it’s no surprise that I gravitated towards The Dark Fae cart, as it’s all shoes! What you may not realize about me, 75% of the time, I will gravitate towards flats, even in RL. So I was really happy to see that the shoe offerings were  the super cute, beaded Boardwalk sandals.

DarkFaeWC1

I went with the Skittles pair, as I really liked that the beads were different colours. Each pair does come with a HUD with 4 leather colour options (although I somehow missed getting a shot of my pair in the black! Doh!). As well, these are unrigged mesh, made to fit SLink flat feet, or Maitreya flat feet. For all you male SLink feet wearers, don’t fret, as there is a pair of really nice men’s sandals available too. All this goodness at only L$10 a piece! Love it! Here is the direct TP to the Dark Fae cart (although they are now boards, which make for a way better shopping experience), and I have included a shot of the cart so you can pre-decide which colour you want before having to brave the mad rush of AV’s that are happily shopping at the sale :)

That’s all for now, until next time, TTFN!

A little bit of Hunting in Africa, my camera is the perfect shot!

 

Well well…It’s another beautiful Thursday! Hope you all have had a good week since I was last here. I’ve been having to endure renovations at my workplace, and it’s been a little rough. I am so glad I have SL to escape to once I get home. This week, with the help of the African Summer Hunt, I’ve escaped to a whole other continent, Africa! For LM’s to all participating stores, hunt previews, and hints, here’s the link to the hunt website. All hunt prizes are free. So, let me show you a few fun things I picked up while working on this fairly easy hunt.

My lovely maxi skirt, ruffled top and head wrap are all part of the hunt gift you will find over at Cheeky Parrot Boutique. I just love the store name. For all you male FabFree readers, there is also a men’s gift included. All three pieces of the Nyoka Ladies set are mesh, and excluding the head wrap, which comes in 3 sizes, they come in all the standard sizes. I’ve included a shot with a closer look at my top and the head wrap. The colours and patterns on these pieces really do scream African Summer. I love it!

The other hunt item I wanted to show off is from BoWillow. My super-cute sunglasses are 1 of 3 pairs you will get when you find the hunt item in store. I happen to be wearing the giraffe pattern, but you also get a zebra pair, and a leopard pair. How much fun is that little bow! While BoWillow mainly focuses on children’s clothing, these sunglasses are mod, and also have a sizing script, so no matter your avie size, you can wear them. BTW, special mention, if you have space to keep it out, the box these glasses come in,  is too adorable. You’ll know what I mean when you unpack your items :)

The last addition to my African look, is not actually from the hunt. Although I did kind-of hunt for it, on one of my many Marketplace hunts. What did I find, my pretty henna body tattoo. This is a Marketplace L$1 promo offered from AV Ink Tattoo’s, here’s the link. You get a torso tattoo, that I am wearing, as well as a set of hand tattoo’s, which I am not wearing. Both tat’s are system layers, and they really are just delicately simple and pretty. I really wanted something that would match the feeling of my outfit, without going for the typical tribal tat’s, and I thought this fit the bill. Do not be surprised if you see this tattoo showing up in my other posts.

OK, while I have stayed pretty quite while posing, I think the lions finally noticed me. So I better be heading out. I hope you enjoyed my trip to Africa with me. Who knows where I’ll end up next. Until next time, my lovelies, TTFN!!

Sleep to Dream

Sleep to Dream 1Hello Fab Free’rs, things are busy this time of year, and I’m sad that Real Life has kept me away. Now that I’m back, I’m definitely excited to be back in the mix! Lately I’ve been a little nostalgic for the goth/grunge rock fashion of the early to mid 1990s. Don’t ask me why, perhaps it’s because those were my teenage years, when fashion first became a passion of mine and I first began expressing myself through my own personal style. Recently, Kaithleen’s hit an amazing 2000 group members! To celebrate the success, there’s a new FREE group gift to be had in the form of a slinky little black dress. The second I put it on, I fell back into that witch-y goth style I used to covet. This versatile piece from Kaithleen’s could be worn as a dress, a top, or even as lingerie. The gift includes the dress in solid black, and a white lace trimmed version. The white lace trimmed version includes a sheer option as well. Each version includes standard mesh sizes, and there are matching alphas. The Kaithleen’s group is FREE to join, don’t miss out! Here are the details, Enjoy! Because Because

Hair – little bones. Beat – Landslide

Skin – Lumae :: Adore – Darkling

Head – Lelutka – Aria

Something Steam(Punk)y!

Something Steam(punk)y

I’d never miss a chance to try out a new character, cosplay, or fantasy! Though I admit, I’ve never done steampunk. So when I saw this amazing hat at the NSP Florals Cart at the Wash Sale (and only 10L — Woot!), I was all a twitter! It was a chance to put together a steam punk look with a great accessory from top quality designer and once I had the top hat on, I was thrilled!

I love the combination of rich fabrics, florals, and metal feathers! Then it was off to adventuring at a steampunk sim! (If you have time, check out New Babbage — I linked you below… very cool place!)

But don’t be mistaken! The NSP Floral Cart at the Wash Sale is not just steampunk! Oh no! Versatility is the name of the game! This creative creator is offering up several gorgeous vintage hats (with the hair included!) as well as beautiful floral accessories that could easily finish off a stunning modern gown or top off a Gothic vampire’s ebony tresses.

The possibilities are endless and at only 10L per purchase, you won’t want to pass any of these beauties up!

Back In Black!

82615 post

Here I am again, fresh from a one-week vacation. I am sporting the official color of men’s clothing on Second Life, so you know I am bringing my “A” game. “Blog or die!” that’s my motto. I would have it tattooed on my arm, but if I did, somewhere out there is a person with a name like Alfred J. Blog who would do something publicly embarrassing. Then I would have to pay again to get the tat removed. I blog hard, but I am also very practical. Oh, and cheap, too.

First up on my list of fantastic finds is this jacket from REDPANDA. The Leather Jacket With Shirt is currently offered as a very generous FREE group gift. It is a one piece mesh combo of the jacket and the simple T-shirt, a classic look for a male avy if there ever was one. My favorite color to wear it in is black, of course. However, REDPANDA includes a hud that gives you five additional color choices, along with an additional eight colors for the T-shirt. You can also forgo the Tee entirely by choosing “No Shirt” on the hud. Four sizes and a clearly-grained leather texture with excellent details, such as visible stitching and metallic zipper teeth, make this a FREE group gift worth picking up!

So, newly back from the glorious sunshine, I figured it was time for me to go wild, and what better item to go wild in than these pants from Deadly Mouse? Their 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is a great outfit called Over Limit. It includes these crazy pants, subdued in color while the pattern is bursting with energy and life! They come in five sizes. Plus, this hunt gift also includes a great mesh hoodie in slate blue with excellent folds making it look very soft. Honestly if you like realistic looking clothes, and you want a solid blue hoodie, you are going to love the one that is in this box! I am going to give you a hint to help you find the hunt prize, which I rarely do, because I really want as many of you as possible to find this: “This hunt object is so small, it might drive you INSANE!” The hunt object is a small blue and black rectangle, and it’s easy. I promise.

I don’t wear jewelry often, so when I find something I have to like it immensely in order to consider posting it. Such is the case for the necklace I am wearing today. The Trophy Necklace from IT! (Indulge Temptation!) definitely fulfills that criterion and more. The Trophy Necklace comes with a hud giving you seven choices for the colors of the beads and it is materials enabled. This 1L Fashion Play Hunt For Him gift is the perfect accessory for the “Wild thing” mood I am in today! Pick this up to go with some casual and beachwear outfits. It’s a great find.

I am wearing another fantastic FREE skin gift from the Midnight Mania Board at Tellaq. I have mentioned them before since they are one of the best sources for men’s skins on the grid (also one of the most generous). Join the FREE group at the front of the main store and run to the back of the store to tap that MM board. Where else can you get a skin this good, and in sixteen facial hair variations with bonus goodies thrown in FOR FREE? Seriously, if you are a guy on SL, make this a regular stop, and ladies, please give it a tap now and then to help us guys out. The target is high, usually requiring 500 slaps, but the board does close regularly and the gifts are outstanding.

While you are checking out that close up of the devilishly handsome guy in the picture above, take a good look at his eyes. These are the current FREE Group Gift eyes from IKON, one of my favorite eye merchants on the grid. Just yesterday Love posted them here, but they look just as great on male avies too. These IKON Unisex Triumph Eyes in Armor have a combination of brown and tan tones in them and if you click my pic twice, you should be able to zoom in to see them in spectacular detail. The IKON group is FREE to join and I heartily encourage you to do so.

Lastly, for what seems to be a week jam-packed with great gifts and prizes to grab, Alli&Ali Designs are participating in the Fashion Play For Him Hunt as well. Their FREE gift is the stylish Roman Hair that I am wearing. It is offered in eleven colors and has an option for streaks in the hair to make it more versatile. Depending on your skin, you might want to find a hairbase from your inventory to wear with it to give it a more finished look like I did. The box does not include one, and it is not required as it looks great without one.

That’s it for this marathon post! You can tell I missed all of you since I had this many items saved up to share. We are nearing the end of the month, so if you see something you might want, go get it as soon as possible. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt ends August 31st. Until next time everyone, take care and see you on the grid!—–WHC Riler

Boho Basics

Snapshot_001Hey there Fabulouse Readers :) I was visiting the latest round of Shiny Shabby the other day and came across this super fun Boho Daily Basics Set by Luas.  It’s just 50L per  play, and in the set there are several different styles of skirts and matching tops as well as the rare collar and also a bag (which I wasn’t lucky enough to score, but the event isn’t over yet!).  My favourite piece of the gacha set is actually the common floral skirt.  It’s so vibrantly coloured and full!
Luas Daily Basics GachaThe furnishings in my photo above are also available at 50L per play – but you’ll find the Boho Summer Gacha Set located at the Luas mainstore.

I haven’t come to you completely without freebie news!!  Don’t worry – I got your back.. or your eyes or something!  These very sultry IKON Triumph Eyes in the colour of Armor are the latest free group gift!  Just activate your free inworld group tag and you’ll be able to pick up both the prim and mesh versions.
