Out of the Woods

Out of the Woods

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.  It might look like Ripley and I are feeling all dark and brooding, but actually we enjoyed a bright sunny day in RL.  We’re here to share a couple of Fabulous Finds with you that we think you’ll really enjoy.

I’m Feeling a Bit Sassy…

It must be this new free Black Dress that I picked up over at the Sass store.  With a plunging neckline and two peek-a-boo slits in the skirt, it certainly is a flirty little number.  I love the way this frock hugs your curves and leaves your back tantalizingly bare.  You can’t really see them from my photo, but there are 3 little buttons that gleam in the light which add visual interest to the bodice.  The black and gray striped skirt section and over all dark color scheme made me think of a spooky, mysterious vibe, so Ripley and I decided to visit an eerie forest for our photo.  Although the weather might be getting more nippy outside, fortunately in SL, I don’t need to worry about catching a chill in this saucy mini dress. To pick up a copy for your SL wardrobe, you need to be a member of the Sass group, and there is a small 10 Linden dollar join fee, but I think this dress is well worth the investment!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

These Boots

As much as I love my new dress, I *adore* the Petra Boots from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes that I am wearing!  With a high heel design, detailed lacing and silver accents, these boots are great to wear with a dressier outfit, but also flexible enough to coordinate with a more casual style.  The white stitching really pops against the black leather background.  The folder includes versions for classic avatars (with a shoe base, alpha layer and a handy resizer for the perfect fit) as well as for Maitreya and Slink Hourglass.  All I had to do to add this versatile pair of footwear to my closet was to locate the collection of pillar candles hidden in the shop (and by *I*, I meant Ripley), pay the teensy 1L price and scurry home to try them on.  The Dark and Brooding Hunt runs until September 30th and features a gothic, vampire theme, which is perfect for the upcoming Halloween holiday.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Pour Toujours L’ete

The One

Hello there Fabulouses!  This little birdie told Ripley and I about a free group gift from Pour Toujours.  When we arrived at the shop, we were pleasantly surprised to find not one, but five gifts for various groups on display.  This super sweet crop top is my absolute favorite out of all the goodies on the wall.

Forever Summer

Although we might be saying good bye to the carefree days of summer in real life, in Second Life, you can make your own seasons.  That being said, I was happy to discover a warm weather shirt which is sure to become a wardrobe fave of mine.  The Trexy top features an intricately fringed, cropped hem as well as a neckline that dips daringly low.  Although I opted for a bobbed hairstyle, you might want to wear long locks for extra coverage of the girls in front.  It’s kind of difficult to see in my photo, but this shirt has an asymmetrical style with one slitted, half sleeve on the left and a sleeveless tank style arm on the right, which lends the outfit a funky, free flowing vibe.  The folder includes a texture change HUD with three color options – white, red and black.  To add this flirty little number to your SL closet, you need to be a member of the SL Frees and Offers Group, but since there is no fee to join, you can scoop up this gift completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Feathers appear when angels are near

FabFree: Feathers appear when angels are near

Good morning Fabulouses!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend :).  Tetra has released some feathery new things, and guess what…  some of it is FREE!

It’s a two stop feather fantasy

You’ll need to make two stops if you’d like this whole feathery outfit.  Your first stop is at Collabor88 to purchase the Phoenix Dress ($288L), and your second stop is at the Tetra Mainstore to join the free to join inworld group and grab the free group gifts!  The matching Feather Sandals and Diamond Stud Earrings (which are DOH… hidden behind my hair from this angle) are FREE!  Now… of course you don’t have to purchase the dress at Collabor88, these free group gift items would look very nice with other outfits, but, after seeing it now… don’t you want it?  I know I did ;).

***  NOTE – This group join fee has changed to 50L.  Thank you for the messages everyone!

Compatible with:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Bring on Those Dog Days of Summer

Dog Days of Summer

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I continued our journey along a hunt path on the grid.  This time, inspired by Love’s, Juli’s and Pru’s recent posts, we checked out the Beached Bunny Hunt and headed over to Dragonmoon Designs.  There, we discovered an outfit perfect for the hot, lazy afternoons, and it cost just one little Linden dollar.

I Long for Those Sunny Days!

The Sunny Daze outfit features a buttoned tank top that reaches to about belly button level and coordinating shorts which have the cutest little ties dangling down.  In addition to versions for classic as well as mesh bodies, the folder includes a texture change HUD with four color options each for the shorts and top.  You can opt to color both the same as I have done or use different hues for more variety.  The tank and shorts are worn separately so you can mix and match with items from your wardrobe as well.  I really like the detailed buttons and the realistic wrinkles in the fabric where it is gathered in the shorts on the sides.  To pick up a copy for yourself, all you need to do is locate the beach pail hidden somewhere in the shop, then pay the 1 Linden prize fee.  It’s well worth the effort!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes separate alpha layers for top and shorts)
  • Belleza
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Free Flowing Locks

I picked up my new hairstyle for free as a Midnight Mania prize over at Olive Hair.  The Therra hairstyle prize is a full fatpack of colors (including streaked and non streaked varieties) and features a center part and thick luxurious hair pulled forward over your shoulders.  The Midnight Mania prizes over at Olive rotate through, so although the Therra style is not on display for today’s prize, there is another lovely long style for you to try your luck on.  If you check back another day, Therra may once again be featured soon.  There is no group required, and every day I’ve gone back, the target has been met, so it’s an easy way to add some new free styles to your collection!

Until my next post, happy hunting!
