Oh Henlo, Fren

Hello Friend

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Monday!  After doing a little shopping, the pupster and I went for a walk this afternoon and made a new friend over at the Haraiki Bay sim.  If you are looking for a lovely, tranquil place to explore, I’d highly suggest a visit.  I’d also recommend a trip over to TRS Designs, which is where I picked up my new denim mini dress as a free group gift.

As Blue as the Summer Sky

The Camila Dress features a low cut back, slender shoulder straps and a mesh insert at the neckline.  Vertical seams and slits on either hip add visual interest to the faded denim fabric.  This little number hugs all your curves and is perfect for warmer temperatures.  There are versions for classic as well as mesh avatars in the folder, so there is something for everyone inside.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the TRS Designs group, but there is no join fee, so the dress is completely free.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Put On Your Red Dress Tonight

Misty Morning

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week went well and that you have some plans for fun this weekend.  If you have a date night in mind, I came across the cutest red dress that is perfect for the occasion while shopping at Chic Moda.  The best part is that this frock is a free group gift!

It’s Time For a Night on the Town

Featuring an off the shoulder style, this little number is packed with details such as an embossed texture on the bodice, a v-shaped cut out in the neckline decorated with dangling ties, and a full skirt.  Sometimes it’s hard to find perfectly color coordinated undergarments to accompany short dresses, but you won’t have to worry with the included panties HUD, which allows you the option to wear them or not.  The crimson Charlene dress will have you ready for an evening out without breaking the bank.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Chic Moda VIP group.  There is a 50 Linden dollar join fee, but membership allows you to scoop up free monthly group gifts (there are four set out right now), participate in new release raffles, take advantage of VIP promotions,and gives you the chance to win group-only lucky board prizes.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass

I hope our Canadian readers have a relaxing holiday weekend.  Here in the United States, we will celebrate Memorial Day next weekend.  The pupster and I have another camping trip planned, and I’m really looking forward to it.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Discovering a Pearl

Salt Breezes

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  I hope the day treated you well.  I can’t think of a better way to wrap up the first work day of the week than a stroll along the shore.  The pupster and I decided to meander along the edge of the sea on the NorderNey sim while the salt breeze playfully ruffled our hair.  Well, I guess there is one thing better….to be walking along the shore in a brand new outfit that you picked up for free.

A Touch of Serendipity

I’m a huge fan of maxi skirts, in RL and in SL, and when I was at The Free Dove gathering free hair to share in our group post {HERE}, this gorgeous Iced Pearl outfit from Luxe Paris caught my eye.  Featuring a dainty tank top with a pretty floral pattern and a sweeping broomstick skirt that is generously cut, this free gift offers simple elegance that can carry you from a walk along a beach to a summer’s eve date.  Pale blue strands in the top coordinate with the glittering waistband of the skirt.  The generous designer packed versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars into the folder, and also included coordinating flat sandals, which you can’t see due to my pose.  To pick up a copy of this gem for yourself, you need to be a member of The Free Dove group, but there is no join fee.  Just click the vendor and you are good to go for an ocean side stroll yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layers)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Sandals for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink as well as an unrigged version

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Bandana Girl

Bandana Days

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses, and Happy Mother’s Day to all of you who are mothers.  I hope you had a lovely day today.  It was a busy one in RL for me, so I’m popping in quickly to share another free gift that you can pick up just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  This little number is ideal for sultry, warm days and really allows your skin to soak up the summer sun.  The Bandana Top from Sexy Princess features an off the shoulder, cropped style.  A traditional white Bandana pattern splashed across a crimson background sets a Bohemian vibe for the top.  I opted to pair it with cut off shorts, but also toyed with a red maxi skirt.  It’s great to have a shirt that is so flexible that it could go either casual or more dressy!  Best of all, you can scoop up this versatile item completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

I promised Ripley a long game of fetch the stick after I finished this post.  He’s getting pretty antsy, so I’d better not keep him waiting too much longer.  There’s no telling what trouble he’ll cause if left alone for too long.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

One Step Closer to Summer

Summer Vibes

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are eager to continue catching some summer vibes here on the Baja Tides sim, so we are popping in with a quick post to share our latest hunt prize.  This week, we checked out The Four Seasons Hunt and discovered this cute tank top over at Trashed.  Featuring a pale gray ribbed background and a vibrant pink flamingo chilling amid blossoms, this top was just what I needed to chase away the cloudy skies in my part of the world.  The designer added realistic details such as a curve-hugging fit, wrinkles in the fabric and slender shoulder straps.  I love the way the top is just a bit on the short side, which allows some of my hips to catch a bit of sun.  To pick up a copy for yourself, all you have to do is locate the hunt icon, a strawberry, and pay the 2 Linden dollar price.  There is a handy hint giver on the wall in the shop in case you get stumped.  It sure helped us out, although Ripley insisted that *he* knew where the berry was all the time.  He was just waiting to see if *I* could find it myself.  Silly boy!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • O-Voluptuous
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Out For a Stroll

Sunday Stroll

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start!  Yesterday, Ripley and I checked out the trail of the Scorching Summer Hunt and discovered this fantastic frock at Salty for just 1 Linden dollar.

It’s a Real Summer Scorcher

I really like the way the Emma dress has multiple layers of material, with a solid base fabric covered with a sheer lace layer.  Buckled, criss-cross straps add visual interest to the white color scheme.  Featuring a low neckline, a snug waist and a full skirt, this outfit is perfect for a day of shopping, but depending on the accessories you add, it’s also dressy enough for a date night.  With its short skirt, you will definitely be able to show off your legs, and you’ll probably want to make strategic use of the alpha layer of your mesh body to preserve modesty.  All you need to do to add this frock to your inventory is to head on over to the Salty Main Store, locate the hunt icon, which is a rosebud, and pay one small Linden dollar.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Catching a Tropical Vibe

Tropical Vibes

Hello Fabulouses!  It was a chilly, dreary, rainy day where I am in RL, but I was lucky enough to be able to escape to SL and hang out on a warm, lush sim wearing what seemed like a golden ray of sunshine.  The best part was I picked up this frock as a free group gift.

How Wonderful Yellow Is

Featuring a sleeveless design, a high waistline and a full, floral skirt, the Sofia Summer Dress from Ma’De is so very pretty!  It provided just the spark I needed to brighten up my day.  Although you might think there are two shoulder straps because of the styling of my hair, there’s actually only one, which adds a bit of sauciness.  I really like the slight ruffle on the hemline and the folds in the fabric because they add visual interest and realism to the design.  To scoop up this mood-uplifting frock for your inventory, you need to be a member of the Teleport Hub group, which has a 10L join fee, but membership opens up the opportunity to pick up a plethora of free gifts across the grid.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Today I Am Choosing Serenity

Saturdays Are For Taking it Easy

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is going well.  After cleaning up around the house this morning, Ripley and I headed to SL to see if we could discover any Fabulous Finds to share with our favorite readers.  Over at Alias, we came across a complete outfit that you can pick up as a free group gift.  Since it comes with a texture change HUD, this is like getting ten outfits in one!

Casual, Comfortable Serenity

For me, weekends are all about kicking back and taking it easy.  Today was no exception.  I pulled on the faded jeans and cute sleeveless top from my latest acquisition, then headed out to explore the Lakeside sim over at Roleplay Heaven.  While Ripley sniffed around, I found the perfect spot to relax and take a snapshot of the Serenity V1 outfit from Alias.  Featuring comfy denim fabric, snap pockets and vertical accents in the center of each leg, these flared pants hug your curves in all the right places.  The loose fitting tank top has a low cut in the back and is held up with spaghetti style straps.  The generous designer included shoes, which you can’t see due to the angle of my photo, as well as coordinating texture-change HUDs for the top and the shoes packed with ten prints in varying hues.  Although there is no alpha layer, sizes for classic avatars as well as versions for mesh body styles are tucked inside the folder.  To pick up this outfit for yourself, you  need to be a member of the MLM Frees and Offers group, which has a teensy 5 Linden dollar join fee, but this provides the opportunity for you to collect free gifts from a variety of designers all around the grid.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP and Tonic

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Ready for Back to Work? Yeah, No

Yeah, No

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I went camping over the weekend, and I have to tell you, when it was time to come home and get ready for work again, my shirt spoke my thoughts clearly.  Was I ready to head back?  Yeah, no.  I can’t be the only one who feels like that after a long weekend, so if you’ve ever had the same sentiment, you might want to pick up this free group gift for yourself and let your shirt do the talking.

An Eyeluring Tank

I was able to scoop up this soft cotton tank for free just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  It features a dark gray strip on each of the side panels, the perfect sarcastic response to a silly question, and a cut that is sure to flatter your figure.  Since the bold text really stands out against the snowy white background, everyone will read your message loud and clear.  The folder contains versions for a variety of mesh body types.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport to the Eyelure store, activate your Fab Free group tag, and click the vendor.

And That’s Not All

I also picked up my Glaice leggings as a free group gift…this time from Revelation.  These shorts are packed with plenty of detail such as rolled up cuffs joined with lacing, a shiny belt, frayed areas on the pockets and a curve-hugging fit.  I can see myself wearing these throughout the spring and summer months.  The gift includes a texture change HUD that allows you to select from six options for colors for the jeans ranging from blues and grays to brown.  To add these versatile leggings to your inventory, you need to be a member of the Revelation Store group, but there is no join fee, so they are completely free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Altamura
