A New Dress for the New Year

Giada

Hello Fabulouses!  I’ve been battling a virus this week in RL.  It’s such a bummer to be sick while on vacation!  Hopefully you are feeling great and are planning on attending some holiday parties.  If you are looking for a sexy white dress to wear as you ring in the New Year, I’ve found an adorable one over at the Winter Wonderland Cart Sale at the Wash.  In fact, for a very budget-friendly 10 Linden dollars, you’ll get everything I’m wearing in the photo – jewelry, frock and strappy heels.

Just Giada

One of the offerings at the Finale Couture cart, Giada in Vanilla, is just the sexiest dress!  With a high neckline and full back, accompanied by an asymmetrical hemline, side cut out and dangling ties, this little number will surely draw admiring looks your way.  The package includes the three tiered golden necklace (with built in resize and re-texture capability) shown in my photo as well as coordinating high heeled shoes.  There’s also a pretty golden arm cuff which I didn’t notice until after I snapped my photo.  I love the ivory fabric and realistic folds in the texture!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Here’s wishing you a happy, healthy start to your new year.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Strolling Through Starlight Shores

Snowy Day

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Friday!  The pupster and I just had to get away from the last minute shopping and wrapping.  It was a bright, sunny day and we both needed a walk in the country air.  If you haven’t visited the Starlight Shores sim, I highly recommend a trip.  It’s the perfect spot for a relaxing get away.  There is a pond for skating, wildlife and gorgeous landscaping to enjoy.  Speaking of places to enjoy, have you visited the Winter Wonderland Cart Sale going on at The Wash?

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

There are so many budget friendly offerings at The Wash.  My favorite has to be the Krystal Outfit from Finale Couture’s cart.  Featuring a long jacket with grayish blue accents, coordinating thigh high boots and optional fur collar and cuffs, this outfit will have you suited up for a chilly day in an elegant style.  The main body of the coat has a woven texture which is really well done, and gray trim and buttons provide the finishing touches.  The best part was the entire package cost just 10 Linden dollars!  The sale runs until January 2nd, so you have plenty of time to take a stroll around the sale and pick up some goodies for yourself.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until next time, happy shopping!

Treat Yourself Tuesday

Lost in Dreams

Hello Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I are hanging out at the shore after a fun shopping spree down at the Sunny Side Up Sale at The Wash.  If you haven’t checked out the event yet, you really should.  There are sooooo many wonderful budget friendly finds there!  In fact, I picked up my outfit today at the Finale Couture cart for just 10L.

Comfy Casual

With its sassy crop top and cozy, almost harem style pants, Finale Couture’s Celia outfit is right up my alley.  I love the way the legs are generously cut and gathered into soft folds at the ankle.  A pale, ivy green fabric accented with white batik or tie dye style motifs on the bottoms creates a soft color scheme that will flatter your avi.  You can’t really see the detail in the texture on the shirt due to the angle in my photo, but it features realistic wrinkles which emphasize your figure.   This set for mesh body avatars is perfect for a relaxing day spent lounging at the beach, hanging out with friends, or shopping at The Wash for more fabulous finds!  The event continues until May 16th, which leaves plenty of time for some retail therapy!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Until my next post, happy shopping!

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
  • Fit Mesh for Slink Hourglass and Physique

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!
