Relaxing in the Desert Light

Resting in the Desert Light

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m fighting off a fever in RL after getting my flu shot today, (ouch!) but wanted to pop in quickly to share another free Fabulous Find that Ripley and I discovered at 68 Main.  In my last post {HERE}, I featured a gorgeous, date night dress and heels from the event that I scooped up for free.  Tonight, I’m sporting a more informal look that was also completely free.

She’s Cute in Camo

The Regan outfit, a free gift from Finale Couture, features a strappy khaki tank top and trousers covered in a camouflage print.  It was just right for a stroll in the desert.  I really like the slightly scalloped edge on the shirt, which adds visual interest.  The pants sat low on my hips and hugged my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly.   There is also a resizable belt included in the package that I didn’t see until after I snapped my photo.  Although the pants are only designed to fit mesh avatars, the shirt includes an alpha layer and sizes for classic avatars as well as mesh bodies.  If you are looking for a casual outfit ideal for a day of relaxation, Regan fits the bill!  To pick it up for yourself, you need to be a member of the 68 Main ~ The Event ~ group, but since it has no join fee, it won’t cost you a single Linden dollar.   After activating your tag, teleport over to the event and locate the Finale Couture display.  Click the gift box and pay 0L.  Easy as pie!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

Jeans 

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Lara
  • Venus

Top

  • XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Fit Mesh for Maitreya

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Lost in a Daydream

Daydreaming

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I’m having a lazy start to my morning.  Lounging on a hammock and  listening to the birds singing is so much more fun than grocery shopping.  The local market in my area has this new service where you send them your list, they select your items, and all you have to do is drive to the store.  They meet you in the parking lot and even help load your groceries into your car.  That sure would free up more time for shopping at The Cart Wash….

Savanna

The last time Ripley and I walked through the wash, I couldn’t help but admire the Savanna complete outfit at the Finale Couture display.  For just 50L, I came away with this sexy bustier and sleek leather pants, which show off my every curve.  A beaded leather necklace, a pair of earrings, and gold studded heels (for Maitreya and Slink feet) rounded out my look.  The top and trousers both feature coordinating golden accents such as the gleaming zippers and decorative grommets.  The entire outfit has a funky, casual feel and I decided to play up the Boho vibe by wearing a hairstyle with a golden headband.  The package includes sizes for classic avatars as well as fits for mesh bodies.  You can scoop up this budget friendly complete outfit for yourself down at The Cart Wash, but hurry, the event ends November 1st.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

    • Bustier in Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
    • Pants in Classic Mesh XS, S, M, L, XL and Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
    • Eve
    • Freya
    • Hourglass
    • Maitreya
    • Physique
    • TMP
    • Venus

Here’s a close up picture so you can see the detail in the necklace and bustier: Savanna

Until my next post, happy shopping!

How Stella Got Her Groove Back

Stella

By Visiting The Wash Cart Sale, of Course!

That’s right, I finally got myself over to The Wash Cart Sale, and let me just say, “Wow!”

As the other FabFree bloggers have mentioned, there some great 10L deals – and even some amazing 50L deals. And since The Wash is celebrating its 10th Anniversary of Cart Sales, there are free gifts at nearly every cart! 😮

Grand Finale

I was super excited to open the generous cart sale gift from Finale Couture. Not only do you get this super sexy dress, but you also get the matching heels and choker.

The Stella – Grey dress comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L with an alpha layer. It works for mesh bodies, as well – I’m wearing it on my Maitreya body, but since the dress runs a bit small, I had to wear a size larger than I normally do.

The shoes are sized for Slink high feet. The choker comes with a resizer built in so it fits any size. Just click to access the blue menu.

Fancy My Decor?

Many of the decor items you see here are free group gifts from Fancy Decor. You can pick up the Leaning Art, Birch Candles, Inlaid Box, and Potted Succulent — and a whole lot more! — just by joining the Fancy Decor in-world group for 250L. There are so many gifts out right now that you could furnish an entire room. Plus, a new gift is set out each month!

Dutchie Furniture also has some interesting gifts set out at the landing point. One of them is the little pile of coins that you see here, but there are several others, including an empty box and a bag of trash. All are completely free, and you don’t have to join a group.

Enjoy the rest of your week! 🙂

Misty Morning Walk

Misty Morning

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!   Walking for exercise must be a new, healthy trend for the Fab Free Bloggers, because just like Carson, Ripley and I headed out for another morning walk.  This time, we explored the Sea Foam sim.  With rose-pink flowers carpeting the ground, and mist rising off the water, the pup and I set out.  We paused to snap a quick photo before continuing our journey through this beautifully landscaped sim.

Nothing Gets Between Me and My Purple

When I was a new SL resident, a friend introduced me to The Free Dove, which is a wonderful shop packed full of free gifts ranging from shoes, to clothing to hair.  Every so often, Ripley and I travel back there to check out the new offerings.  I am so glad we visited this week because while we were there, my hound with a nose for fashion sniffed out a Fabulous Find to share with you.  The free, curve-hugging Justine dress I am sporting in my picture is a sleek, sleeveless number with a fun, asymmetrical hemline.   I love the way the fabric is slightly gathered with realistic folds.  A zipper on the left side of the skirt adds a whimsical touch.  The generous designer at Finale Couture also tucked the free, perfectly-coordinated Justine heels into the package, so I came away with a complete outfit!  Best of all, the frock and footwear were in my favorite color – purple!  (The box said “eggplant,” but to me, it’s a lovely shade of purple).  You have to be a member of The Free Dove group to scoop up this lovely dress, but joining is free.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh Justine dress in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Justine heels

Now It’s Time For a RL Walk…

I am truly enjoying the cooler mornings that we are experiencing now in the desert.  According to Siri, 78 degrees is “hot,” but to me, it’s a fabulous treat.  Ripley and I are off to explore in the early fall morning.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Bali is My Next Stop

Acadia

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  In my post yesterday {HERE}, I shared one of our finds from The Cart Wash Sale, and Ripley and I are back today with another discovery.  Yesterdays’ look was casual, so I decided to switch things up today with a date-night dress with some strappy high heels.

Hello Bali Blue

I scooped up my figure-hugging mini dress at the Finale Couture display for only 10L.  With slender shoulder straps joining together in a T formation at the back, and a dramatic plunging neckline, this frock will show off your curves in style.  In a pale, Bali blue shade, with a texture composed of alternating leaf shaped prints, this mini dress ends with an embellished woven fringe, which adds a playful touch of whimsy.  The package also includes Acadia heels in a perfectly coordinated shade, which feature delicately intertwined straps.  There is also a gold toned, beaded necklace with teal-blue gems tucked inside the box as well, however, I didn’t wear it for my photo.

Sizes Included:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Acadia heels for slink high
  • Acadia necklace (not shown in picture……I didn’t see it in the folder in time)

We’re Not Done Yet…

Ripley and I found *so many* budget-friendly fashions at The Cart Wash Sale, and we will return soon to share another one with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Down That Red Dirt Road

Down that Red Dirt Road
Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are enjoying the official arrival of summer.  In my part of RL, summer time can be unbearable.  We are broiling under a heat wave with record high temperatures that are leaving me longing for the rural dirt roads and cool green forests of my childhood home.  Since I can’t get out for long in RL, I sure am glad that Ripley and I could take a long stroll down a country lane in SL.

Cute and Casual

After reading Love’s post {HERE} and Carson’s post {HERE} about The Cart Wash Sale, Ripley and I decided to take a look for ourselves, and we discovered the perfect casual outfit at the Finale Couture cart for our trip down memory lane.  For only 10L, I scooped up the complete Lea outfit, which includes my black cami-style top and distressed denim jeans.  One of my pet peeves is having to break in a new pair of jeans, so finding a pair that already have that vintage look, and are comfortably soft is a real plus in my book.  The pale hue of these softly worn trousers contrasts beautifully with the dark satiny texture of my top.  I love the way the top leaves part of my tummy bare to feel the gentle summer breeze.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Cami for Classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL (plus alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh Cami in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Cami for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink
  • Jeans for Slink, Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Lara, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Venus

Just Packing The Essentials

FinaleCouture2washsaleWe all have baggage…  It’s how he carries it that matters

He wonders why my bags are always so heavy for even the shortest of trips…  He is constantly teasing me about how I must be packing rock collections, and everything but the kitchen sink, but [THIS IS WHY]!  I need extra outfits for impromptu dunkings and such.  I bet he won’t be complaining when he finds out I packed sammiches too ;).  I might share…

It’s a good thing that there are so many wonderful things for the season upon us at the Springtacious Cart Sale!  I  was lucky that I was able to load my bags up with plenty of 10L finds including this Anika Shorts and Tied Top Set in aqua by Finale Couture.

The Anika Set Includes:

  • Anika Shorts – XXS – L  mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Anika Top – XXS – L mesh, XXS – L fitmesh + Alpha Layer

Have Some Compassion

FinaleCoutureLWPose
Well hello there FabFree Readers!  As I was puttering around in the yard over the weekend, I noticed that  family of cats has made a home in the shed.   I’ll need to get them vet checked and find them good homes, but I think I will keep this little snuggly one for myself.  I’m sure he won’t mind if I bring in just one more little pet, right?

Step Into My Pose

If you’d like to pose with the family of cats, take a trip over to LW Poses and join their inworld group.  This group is free to join and once you do, you can pick up the Compassion for Animals Pose as shown in my photo :).

You Won’t Believe It, But My Outfit Is 10L!

The Springtacious Cart Sale @ The Wash has begun and the streets are lined with 10L displays set out by some amazing designers from far and wide!  I picked up the Becca Outfit that includes the jean shorts, tank top and plaid shirt ALL for just 10L on the Finale Couture display.  In the folder you’ll find XS-L mesh sizes with co-ordinating alpha layers for each article of clothing.

Note:  Wear a smaller size in the tank top than you do for the shirt so it doesn’t show through the outer shirt.
