Need A Penny, Take A Penny

BelleEpoqueGG
Hello again FabFree! I know I blogged this store yesterday, but I am sending you right back to Belle Epoque today to pick up another awesome group gift that has just been released!

Time Portal

Oh, how I wish I could have been around in the 50’s and 60’s to wear these dishy dresses and walk down the city streets with my shopping bag (that I probably filled for under $10!).  At least in Second Life, we have Belle Epoque to take us back in time fashionably :).  Now you can pick up the Penny Dress as shown on my avatar (including the scarf) in one fitmesh size as a free group gift (10L to join).  I am wearing the Ocean colour that is included, but also included is Aubergine, Shadow and Olive!

Have a great day!

I See You Eyeing My Coffee!

I "Sea" You Eyeing My Coffee!

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I escaped to NorderNey today for a morning walk along the shore, and Mr. Gully, here, thought I brought my iced coffee for him.  Silly bird!  Even the pupster knows better than to get between this girl and her java first thing in the morning.  Although it might not look like it in the photo, I was ready to make some Kat-The-Desert-Girl-Ninja moves to rescue my cup, if need be.

Sweet Skirt For a Mini Price

Since it’s currently a promo gift at the Fax Marketplace shop, the cute mini skirt I am wearing in my snapshot cost just one Linden dollar.  It features a curve-hugging waistline tied with pink laces, and a flared hem that offers a comfortable fit.  In real life, I love to wear just this soft shade of green, so when I saw it on the marketplace, I knew it was destined for my SL inventory.  I chose to pair the Lara skirt with a full perm cropped tank top, which I was able to tint a matching shade.  I used the “Show Color Under Cursor” command in the Developer menu to help me match the RGB in the top to that of the skirt, so it was easy to create a coordinated outfit.  I think they go together beautifully!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh
  • Mesh (I did not see an alpha layer in the package)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Fox
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Side-swept

My new, free hairstyle is a Hair Fair gift from [elikatira].  My first time going through the fair, I completely missed this giftie because the display said simply “Color Demo” and I didn’t realize the little gem that was contained inside this gift box.  With side-swept bangs and long tresses draped over my left shoulder, this new ‘do fit my style perfectly.  It contains nine color HUDs packed with all textures [elikatira] offers, and, best of all, was completely free at the Hair Fair shop.  When you navigate to the store, the gift is located on the floor in the right hand corner.  Simply click the display and buy it for 0L.

Help Me, I’m Melting!

It’s another super warm day where I am in RL (116 degrees Fahrenheit – “HOT”! according to Siri), and I am trying my best to stay cool.  It’s a good thing I don’t have to worry about high temperatures in SL.  I can run the AC in real life, and while away the hours in complete comfort.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Punk Rock Girl

A Tale of Two Cats

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness, and hit the hunt trail again.  This time, the pupster and I sought out little white skulls during the Brii Underground Punk Rock Girl Hunt.  Each of the ten punk rock themed prizes in this hunt cost 1L and feature a complete outfit.   At the landing point, there is a board which displays the variety of hunt gifts and also a hint giver, which I found very useful.

Punk’s Not Dead…

…at least that’s what the Lokele t shirt claims.  The black side-knotted top features a gray, guitar-wielding skeleton, which definitely gives the shirt an edgy feel.  The asymmetrical, cropped hemline provides a sexy glimpse of your tummy.  Gray and black plaid capris with white stitching and riveted pockets coordinate beautifully with the theme of the outfit.  To wrap it all up, flat black sneakers with dark gray socks complete the look.  Quite a bit of care was taken with the amount of detail in these shoes, from the suede texture with white stitching, and the untied laces, to the herringbone-patterned soles.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh pants in XS, S, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Mesh T shirt in XS, S, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Alpha layers for top and shorts for classic avatars
  • Fitmesh pants in S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh T shirt in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Omega Lokele Make Up Catwa Head Jessica (not worn in my photo)

A New Multi Hue Updo

The edgy feel of my new outfit called for a different style hair than my usual, and the Zoe updo from EscalateD fit the bill perfectly. Completely free to Fab Free group members, this hairstyle features long tresses gathered in a large bun at the back of your head.  A few wispy strands dangle realistically down near your ears and the back of your neck.  The dark ebony hue of the hairstyle is brightened by highlights which provide vibrant pops of color.  A texture change HUD allows you to customize the base color and streak color of the highlights, offering a range of 15 colors across the rainbow spectrum.  I decided to use purple tinted eye shadow to play off the streaks in my hair.  It’s not a look I’d wear every day, but it made for a fun change up!

Ripley and I will return soon with another Fabulous Find to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Let Your Colors Burst

Vision

Hello Fabulouses!  I have a quick post for you today, featuring a completely free, bustier from ViSion Clothing Company.  With a soft pink, lavender and gold floral pattern splashed across a dark background, this colorful, sexy top will set off your curves in style.  I really like the eye-catching details of the silver rivet accents and the black criss-cross side straps.  Since the misty morning air was cool, I decided to slip on a leather cropped jacket, but as the day heats up, I plan to remove it, and soak up some sunshine.  Either way, this top looks fantastic, and so will you!  Best of all, the ViSion Clothing Company group has no join fee, so you can scoop up this bustier for free.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Although it’s above our 75L maximum limit, I thought it was worth mentioning that my beaded necklace from Indulge Temptation is currently 50% off.  In fact, every item in the store is 50% off until July 10th, so if you are looking to add some reasonably priced baubles to your inventory, you might want to journey over to IT! and take a peek around.

Baby, You’re a Firework…

Although I enjoy Fourth of July celebrations, I dread them as well, because poor Ripley is terrified of the sound of fireworks.  Last night, he paced my room, and spent some time cowering partly under my computer desk (poor boy doesn’t quite fit under it any more).  I’m sure the next couple of days will be challenging for him as neighbors celebrate Independence Day with firecrackers, Roman Candles, and Skyrockets. I know he’ll be glad to have this holiday behind us.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Time Out for a Sweet Treat

Any Time is Ice Cream Time!

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to celebrate the weekend by making a special trip out for some ice cream.  It’s too hot here in RL to have ice cream outside, but fortunately, it’s never too hot in SL for some icy goodness!

I Think My Best Days Are Spent in Cropped Tops

The summery Lili bralet that I am wearing is a free gift for members of the Miss Chelsea group.  Although the group has a 100L join fee. there are still two other group gifts set out for members as well.  This cropped top comes complete with a 16 color texture change HUD, so it’s like getting sixteen tops in one.  In my photo, I paired Lili with a mid length skirt (more on that in a moment), but I also experimented with a full length maxi skirt and a pair of casual capris, and the top coordinated beautifully with each!  I love how the criss cross straps in the front add visual interest.    On a side note, from now until July 5th, Miss Chelsea is having a 50% off Summer Sale on all items excluding gift cards and gachas.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

The Whole Caboodle

For my photo, I chose to pair my bralet top with a mid length skirt, which is a free group gift from Caboodle.  A 25L group join fee gives you access to 11 group gifts plus 8 lucky boards.  Although I am sporting a black pencil skirt today, the free package also includes red and white versions.  With realistic folds, a ruffled hem, and a satiny sheen, the texture on this frock is spot on.  It’s perfect for an afternoon of shopping or a day at the office.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Well, I’d better finish my half of the cone before it melts (yes Ripley, the other half is yours!).  I hope you have a chance to carve out some time for a sweet treat for yourself this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
