Summer Elf

Summer Elf
Hello There Fab Free’rs! Sadly our weekend is coming to an end, but I’m not going to let that get me down, and you shouldn’t either. To help keep away the pending Monday blues, I say some retail therapy is in order.

First, I love this oriental style parasol by Belle Epoque. It is the current Teleport Hub group gift at the Belle Epoque main location. This FREE gift has a single hold pose, and comes with a texture change hud that lets you choose from several equally beautiful patterns. To get your copy of this fun gift, just join the Teleport Hub group, there’s a one time fee of 10 lindens, then click the gift vendor at Belle Epoch.

Next up, I think this hairstyle by Tram is uber cute. It’s an older gift, originally available at a past hair fair, but it was new to me! lol There are several group gifts available at Tram, and the group is FREE to join. This particular gift is called F623 (though the package says F719?) and it comes in this lovely pale blue grey color only. To get your copy, head over to Tram and wear your group tag, then just click the gift vendor on the table at the back of the store.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

In Repose

Repose

“These vapors, with their leaden, golden, iron, bronzèd glows,
Where the hurricane, the waterspout, thunder, and hell repose,
Muttering hoarse dreams of destined harms,–
‘Tis [he] who hangs their multitude amid the skiey deep,
As a warrior that suspendeth from the roof-tree of his keep […]”
— from “A Sunset” by Victor Hugo

Sunset.

I have a potted garden in real life that I tend, and I sit outside surrounded by the flowers and herbs almost every evening as the sun sets. When I passed the NSP Florals Cart at the Cart Wash, I was taken in by the dresses… particularly the blue flowered smock that I have chosen to show off. It reminded me of my evening sunsets among my flowers… mostly yellow petunias and a wide range of potted herbs such as spearmint, chives, oregano, cilantro, etc.

I love the high neckline, the detailed flowered texture, and the softly ruffled skirt that make this dress perfect for summer evenings. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes with a quality alpha layer, and is sure to become a favorite of yours too for only 10L. The NSP Florals Cart sports this dress in 12 different colors for you to choose from, so if blue is not to your liking, you’re bound to find something that is.

Behind the ears.

I’m a little late in showing it off, but I’m glad I didn’t forget to stop by KoKoLoReS for the monthly group gift! Be sure to stop by the main-store before June is over to pick it up. This month’s gift called “Kit” is a beautiful long and behind the ears style that has a summery and demure feel to it. It comes with a hud of natural colors to suit your needs. The group join is a one time fee of 250L, but KoKoLoReS is excellent about giving a monthly gift on schedule, usually with a range of natural colors with each gift, making the fee well worth your lindens.

Where the Wild Flowers Grow

Where the Wild Flowers Grow

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend!  Ripley and I started it off with a long walk in the woods at the beautiful Hobbiton Sim.  If you haven’t visited there, it’s well worth the trip.  The landscaping is beautifully done, and there are so many lovely spots to snap pictures, as well as places for dancing, chatting, and even some light-hearted role play.

Let Us Dance in The Sun With Wildflowers in Our Hair

For only 10L each, I created a casual and care free, bohemian summer look with a sweet top and denim micro mini from the Baci Shop stand at The Cart Wash.  The Babado top left my shoulders free to soak up some sun rays, and draped in soft folds to end above my waist.  Ric rac trim added a playful finishing touch to the bottom hemline.  Trendy and chic, a crop top is a summer wardrobe must-have, in my book.  Just in case white isn’t your style, the package includes a HUD with 80 choices so you can tint your Babado top to your liking.  The white hue of the shirt coordinated beautifully with my micro mini skirt.  The soft touch of lace trim helped tie together the outfit and added a romantic feel.

Playing off the bohemian vibe, I chose to wear a crown of daisies in my hair and held a bouquet of wildflowers for my photo, which I found at the La & Li Style shop on the Marketplace for only 35L.  A pretty, yellow, animated butterfly is included with the posies.  The cute little critter slowly flapped its wings, as it perched on a daisy.  If you’d like to wear a different hairstyle, an orchid for your hair is nestled inside the box for you to tuck in your tresses.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in sizes XS, M, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Uh Oh…

As I have been sitting here writing my post, some clods of dirt just sailed through the air at the edge of my vision. Ripley, tired of waiting for me to finish, wandered off and decided to do some excavating in a flowerbed at the Broadfoot Residence.  Oh dear, I’d better go see if I can repair the damages… I do hope we won’t be in too much trouble!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley who is a very naughty boy!)

Snapshot_005Good morning Fabulouses!  Horray for Saturday!  I have been looking forward to this day since Monday.  It’s a little cloudy and breezy, but hot hot hot so it’s a beach day for this beach bunny!

Suiting Up!

I picked up a new swimsuit for the occasion at 1 Hundred.  This basic one piece may be simple in cut, but sometimes the simple suits that let your curves do all the talking are the best ones!  The vibrant white and hot pink chevron print will make heads turn your way on the beach.  The best news about this suit?  It was FREE for the Women Only Hunt!  You just have to look for the coconut and buy it for 0L!

Chevron Suit Sizes Included:

Don’t forget a towel!

The Bag of Towels sitting beside by chair is made by Décor Junction / Shutter Field and is available as a free gift at The Second Pride event.  This colourful item is just 1 prim and is copy/mod.

A Quiet Spot

Quiet Time

Sometimes a little rest and relaxation with a good book and some coffee in a quiet spot is just what is needed to recharge our batteries. Luckily I’m dressed for the occasion.

Full Outfit… 10L price

The Loordes of London Cart at the Cart Wash Sale has a wonderful deal for bargain hunters if you love quality casual wear. Their English Garden Sets are available in 5 colors and for just 10L you get both the top and the matching shorts.

The top has a nice knit look with a cotton edge texture, and the shorts have a quality denim texture. You’ll get standard mesh sizes XXS – L with a quality alpha layer to go with it, if you are still rocking your system body.

See you at The Wash!

Sailing


Sailing

 

If I could be anywhere…

I’d be on a boat with the wind in my face and the spray of the waves in my face. Nothing relaxes me more than a nice ride on the water. It seems lately I don’t do the things I really enjoy. I believe that is going to change!

Boat-wear on a cart…

I’m bringing you more 10L finds from The Wash Cart Sale. Today I stopped at the Rispetto Designs cart and picked out the Trent Brown Nautical Mesh Shirt and Blake Dark Blue Mesh Shorts. Both the Shorts and shirt come in the calssic XS-XL sizes and the shirt also has three fitmesh sizes. I am once again wearing the 10L Double Happy Blue Canvas Chucks from the Poeme cart that I first showed [HERE].

Happy sailing to one and all this weekend!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/23/2017 – EscalateD

EscalateD Info Desk
Happy what’s left of Friday Fab Free’rs! I hope each of you has had a fun day that seemed to get away from you as I did. Even though it’s late in the day, I’m still excited to be here with you for this weeks Fab Free Designer Friday post. Today I get to share with you a cool little hair shop called EscalateD. The quote at the bottom of the Info Desk at EscalateD pretty much says it all. Life is too short for boring hair, especially in Second Life. Sorry gentlemen, this shop currently only has hair for the ladies. The most notable thing for me about the hairstyles aside from the style which is edgy and urban, are the bold bright color options along with rich natural colors. The EscalateD shop its self is small, however there are a lot of styles to choose from. At the landing point in the center of the shop you can find all the usual information. This is also where you’ll see info about current hunts and events, as well as group gifts.

EscalateD GiftsAs you can see in the photo above, there are many opportunities to score very cute FREE hairstyles at EscalateD. There is 1 current and 3 previous EscalateD group gifts currently available. There is also a group only Midnight Mania board. The EscalateD group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. In the same area of the store you’ll also see 4 other gifts including the FREE Fabulously Free exclusive group gift. Like always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join. For a closer look at the Fab Free gift at EscalateD, check out Love’s announcement post here. In addition to all the cool group gifts, there is 1 freebie, and 2 non group Lucky Letter boards. You won’t want to miss out on all these amazing offers! Also, check out the weekly sales item next to the info desk, there you’ll find a discounted style each week. Happy Shopping Fab Free!
