Club Wear in Two Stops and 3 Linden

Garage

Love was mentioning how she moved from the big city to a small town when she was young and brave. I grew up on a farm… it didn’t even qualify as a small town… and when I went off to college, I moved away to the city. I remember going to clubs and bars for the first time just to play pool because back home, the closest town nearest me didn’t allow women into the pool hall (yes it was that old fashioned!). So when I got to the city I was so excited to go and just play pool at all the hang out joints! I’d dress up for a night on the town and head out, buy a diet pepsi and play pool. It was great fun!

The perfect outfit.

This outfit I’ve put together is perfect for club wear and will only cost you 3 Linden total and a little bit of hunting time. You’ll also only have to make 2 stops to get the dress, shoes, and hair!

First, make a pit stop at Barbed Wire Kisses. They are participating in two great hunts right now. For 1L as part of the Cute and Curvy Hunt, you can hunt down a lolly pop and pick up my cute little two piece outfit. The dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya & Isis

While you’re at Barbed Wire Kisses, be sure to hunt down the globe for the World Tour Hunt and buy it for 2L. You’ll get the shoes in the picture above that are almost a perfect match for the Cute and Curvy outfit! These heels come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

New Hair too!

Take a last stop to Desmonia and you’ll be all set. The hair I’m wearing in the picture comes in a full fatpack of colors and currently the group is free to join. But HURRY! This is a limited time offer and the group is set to go back to a join fee any time now. You don’t want to miss out!

Big City vs. Small Town

Big City vs. Small Town
When I was young and brave, I moved from a very big city to a small town. I thought I was getting away from the hustle and bustle, but what I learned was that even the small towns bustle, just in different ways. I miss the big city, but I’m still nearby and can visit!

Wear This Anywhere!

Whether you are in a big city or a small town setting, I.M. Collection will have you covered!  Stop by and pick up the free Fitmesh Fanatics Gift with a free group join in the group gifts area of the store.  You’ll find it just around the corner from the reception desk at the entrance.  This classy one piece skirt/blouse combination comes in plenty of mesh body fits as listed below.

  • Maitreya Lara

Blue and Baubles

Vision_001

Hello Fabulouses! I’m stopping by to blog a couple of pretty finds that I’m sure you’ll want to add to your wardrobe.

Pick up a pretty dress.

I often blog things from Vision simply because they are such good quality. This newest group gift is no exception. You can pick it up with the free to join store group or the VIP group either one. So the dress is completely free. It includes a color change hud for 22 color choices as well as separate color choices for the panties. You’ll also get a top in the box completely separate so you can wear that without the skirt.

This fits the following bodies:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya & Isis

Baubles!

I picked up my pretty blue gem bracelets at Chop Zuey. These are in the “free to all” section and you can just buy them for 0L. If you want the matching necklace and earrings you can pick those up too, but you’ll need to be part of the group. The group is 350L to join, but you’ll get a plethora of regular gifts to make it worth your while.

You Make Me Happy, When Skies Are Grey

You Are My Sunshine
Hello there FabFree! I have a bit of a crazy day today, but I wanted to stop by here real quick and tell you about a sweet little gift that brought such a smile to my face!

You Are My Sunshine, My Only Sunshine

At Cae, when you join their free inworld group you gain access to the many free group gifts on the VIP shelf, including the latest addition – The Sunshine Necklace.  I tried to get my photo in as close as I could so that you could see the tag that reads “You are my sunshine”.  This necklace comes in both short and long versions and includes a HUD that allows for three metal options and 15 gemstone colours.

Speaking of Fae…

Fairy_001

Not long ago, I visited the Redeux event and showed off one of the free gifts I picked up in a post [here]. I’ve been unpacking boxes ever since. There are so many gifts that it seems I’ll be unpacking boxes for months! Luckily I managed to narrow down my findings to a few special ones to share with you. It’s not secret that I love roleplay and fantasy looks, so I was excited to put together a roleplay look for you. I helped it along with a group gift from a special store that you’ll want to pick up.

So versatile…

I stopped by Silvan Moon Designs to pick up the April Gift and discovered that the gift this month is really versatile. This little dress is a casual style that you could wear as a Boho dress if you were out-of-character, or you could doll it up with accessories to make a fae as I have done, or it has just enough of a traveler feel to create a gypsy. There are so many possibilities! The Silvan Moon Designs group has a one-time join fee of 500L, but you will get a quality gift each month to more than make up for the fee. This dress comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Original, and Slink Hourglass bodies.

Speaking of Fae…

So you know I revisited Redeux. I picked up my wings from Poet’s Heart. They are a beautiful pearlized shade of purple, draped in pearls. They include a color change hud for the pearls too! This is a free gift with your Redeux tag, and the Redeux gift is free to join.

What else?

What else did I get? I also nabbed some stone textures. A package of 18 really terrific ones to be exact. To get these, stop by the Timeless textures booth at Redeux and pick up the free gift there. You can see an example of one of the great looking textures behind me in these pictures.

Fairy_002

Oh and one more thing…

I LOVE this necklace by Steelhead Outfitters. It fits perfectly and is another free gift from Redeux. This is another one of those gifts that is perfect for roleplay or everyday wear either one. It also includes a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the cord and the circular pendant both separately for lots of versatility! And don’t forget that it’s free!

Easter may be over, but…

City in the Sky_001

Easter may be over but the hunts haven’t ended. All the eggs have rotted! And there are still prizes to be found in them! Thankfully, 20 stores have banded together to create….. dun dun dun! The Rotten Egg Hunt! Each store has set out up to 5 gifts on the Rotten Egg Hunt Sim where you can hunt gifts to your heart’s content. The gifts range in price from 1L to 10L and all are of very high quality. I went over there and checked it out myself before all the eggs disappeared and came away with some great prizes. Don’t worry though, you have until April 28th!

Hunting down some rotten eggs…

I spent some time unpacking my gifts and found two favorites I wanted to share with you. First was this Latex Lingerie by Kawaii. It was only 5L and you’ll get the top in a plain version (shown) or a frills version (not shown) and it’s a fatpack of 8 colors on a color change hud. You’ll also get it for a several of body types.

Available body sizes:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Freya

The perfect tattoo

To finish off my look, hunt down the Madame Noir Secret 3 tattoo. This too was a 5L hunt egg. You’ll get a hud that includes Omega and Maitreya appliers as well as options for 75% and 50% opacity.

Happy Hunting!
