Boots and Feathers

Boots and Feathers 1

I’ll admit… a good pair of boots gets me going. And a good pair of FREE boots is even better! So when I found out that Belle Epoque was starting out their new main-store location with a gift of FREE boots (in three colors – brown, black, and grey)… I was in! The style is spot on for a country or boho look and they don’t require any special feet! Woo hoo! You’ll need to join the group to grab the gift, but that is FREE too! As a quick note, the boots are mesh and like many mesh items don’t resize. So depending upon your avatar’s shape and/or size, you may have to adjust your sliders to fit the boots.

——————————————-
ADDED NOTE: We first saw this fabulous pair of boots shown off by Juli HERE in our Shoe Day Showcase! I derped and missed it! Be sure to check out her post for some other amazing shoe deals you’ll want to get in on!
——————————————-

I decided to go “Boho” with the boots and popped onto the marketplace, where I found this oldie but goodie dress for 1L. This Boho Culture Preview Dress is from 2013 and though it has a tiny bit of logo print at the bottom left of the dress… the print blends in so nicely (as you can see in the picture above) that it’s hardly noticeable. The dress is wonderful and definitely worth 1L! I’d have paid far more!

Boots and Feathers 2

I wanted to give you a close up of my boots (see the picture above). But it also gave me a chance to show off my rope and feathers accessory that I found! And I think the head piece and necklace — a mere 10L on the marketplace to get you both pieces — are a perfect complement to this look! This Head and Necklace Ropes by Sweet Lies comes in both scripted or unscripted (for resize purposes) and is perfectly textured. I LOVE the feathers! Well worth 10L and then some!

Resting With My Reindeer

Resting With The Reindeer

Winter is not quite over yet… and I found a great accessory to prove it! Right now, if you go to the Jinx Fantasy Store location, you can join the group FREE and get this amazing wearable AFK reindeer (with pose) group gift for FREE. It’s modifiable, so if you have a little bit of editing skills, you can make the ‘afk’ sign part invisible (like I did) and just lay down with your new reindeer in the snow for a very nice fantasy feel! I included a picture of the gift advertisement below, so you could see what the item looks like with the ‘afk’ tag on it too. It is a really terrific prop all the way around!

I also did a bit of hunting, and for just 1L picked up this Pearl Lingerie bodysuit by OMG! Inc. as part of the Cute and Curvy Hunt. The details on it are amazing, and even though it only comes in system layers, I just fell in love!

Don’t Try to Box Me In

Don't Try to Box Me In 1

I am making away with some fabulous finds at the Cart Sale… and this sexy little black dress just happened to catch my eye this morning and find its way into my wardrobe. I really think it is a must have simply for its versatility. The design is clean but classic and embellished enough that with the right accessories it can be casual, elegant, Gothic (as I have done) steam punk, fantasy, or just about anything your heart desires. And for just 10L at the Stars Fashion Cart at the Cart Wash Sale, it was a real gem to take home. What’s more, it comes in all the standard sizes, plus fitmesh as well as Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza fits.

Don't Try to Box Me In 2

I wanted to stop by to see a particular sim (the location is listed at the bottom of this post) and somehow the wintry feel, class ideas of ghosts and lives past, brought out the Gothic poet in me! So when I saw this stunning FREE accessory gift by Pixel Box designs — and how well it went with my little black dress from Stars Fashion — I just fell in love. You don’t even need to join the group, just hop over to Pixel Box and buy the gift for FREE. You’ll get these gorgeous boots, the raven hand bag, and the black rose head band all in one box. Do hurry though! Pixel Box tends to change out their FREE gifts quite frequently!

A Thousand Snowy Stars

“Star light, Star bright… first star I see tonight…”

I’m not usually one for making wishes or resolutions, but with New Year’s Eve nearly here, I thought maybe I should be thinking on it. It snowed heavily where I live. Ice too. The storms put much of my sleepy city to a stand still… and while there is always a beauty to such things, there is also a definite danger. I resolve to be thankful for all I have — a warm bed being one of those things.

This Frozen Star 1

There are just two days left till New Years, and also just a few days left to pick up your Peace on Earth prizes. The hunt ends January 9th. If you stop by Baboom you can get this amazing Snowy Dress for FREE. It comes in one piece and all the standard sizes and has a lovely lustrous effect I just loved. Well worth the stop. Don’t delay! Get to hunting those globes!

This Frozen Star 2

If you didn’t find it… there are just two days left to enjoy the Winter Gacha Festival which ends December 31st. I picked up my lovely hair called Hosanna by [e] elikatira for a mere 50L per spin.

And last but not least… one final reminder! If you haven’t picked up your goodies from the Chop Zuey advent… hurry over there ASAP! They are all still out for the pickings, but I’m not sure how much longer you’ll be able to enjoy the gifts. My simply stunning A Thousand Stars Set pictured above (it includes a texture change necklace, bracelet, earrings, and barrettes) was one of the group advent gifts, yours FREE with your group tag (350L to join). So hurry before you miss out!

We’ve Been Framed! (For Having Too Much Fun!)

There’s nothing quite like working together to get a job done! And I had a picture frame to hang so… I called Glimmer over to see if she’d help me — plus I wanted to show her my new Christmas tree! I’m not really sure this was the kind of framing I had in mind… but we had fun anyway! :D

By the way! That gorgeous 3-D mesh Christmas tree you see behind us? Is a totally FREE gift you can pick up if you hurry over to LeLutka right now. It’s their advent tree! Not only is LeLutka giving away gorgeous advent gifts each day, but they are giving away the tree too! Just join the LeLutka group FREE and click the tree itself for your FREE copy!

We've Been Framed! (For Having Too Much Fun!) 1

So we didn’t quite get the picture hung on the wall, but Glimmer and I looked great anyway! I had found this amazing applier top (don’t worry it has system layers too) called the April Blouse (with lovely flexi sleeves and prim bottom) at the advent calendar at PurpleMoon Creations (Day 15). It is yours FREE with your 50L group join — plus all the other advent goodies at PurpleMoon as well!

Glimmer outdid me though, I think! Can you believe how that gold dress just shimmers! She found a real sweet deal at Sweet Temptations for you! Her Golden Nights cocktail dress is the current FREE gift at Sweet Temptations and the group is FREE to join as well, making it a completely FREE gift! Yay! She is also wearing a free holiday hat she found at SnowPaws that are FREE for everyone — no group required! How cool is that!

We've Been Framed! (For Having Too Much Fun!) 2

I wanted to show you a couple more great offers before I went back to finish hanging that frame that never got hung! The hair you see me sporting in these pictures is from MINA and is currently one of two VIP gifts available to group members. This one is called Waylon and is actually the men’s gift, but it had such a cute little ‘flip’ to the edges that it took on a feminine feel when I put it on (sorry guys out there!). The female gift is equally pretty. Both gifts are yours FREE with you group tag. The group is 200L to join but you get 2 gifts per month, full fatpacks, so the fee is well worth your time.

My necklace is currently a FREE advent gift at Chop Zuey (day 3) from the FREE side (no group required). This particular necklace called Snow Dance also came with earrings which I’m not wearing, and just has gorgeous details. The advent calendar at Chop Zuey is filling up with beautiful items… be sure to check it out!

Got Your Gowns Right Here!

One of my Second Life passions is Roleplay. And one of my favorite characters is my glass sidhe fey (who’s name is Astrid of course!). She’s a bit of a vain thing… like most fey of course, and loves to look beautiful. So when I discovered that The White Armory was hosting an Advent Calendar I had to check it out, and I was not disappointed!

Like many of the other calendars, you can pick up a gift for each of the 24 days which count down the holiday. For this calendar, no group is required, the doors don’t ‘close’, and you can pick up each of the past gifts. Just pay 0L to receive the gown for each day FREE!

Got Your Gowns Right Here 1

This FREE gown called Ice Flower by The White Armory is exactly the kind of gown my fey character would wear! It was behind door number 11 on the advent calendar in case you were wondering.

It is fully mesh in all the standard sizes to fit either system or mesh bodies with added flexi pieces (the flowers and a few nice touches around the bottom of the skirt to add ‘flow’ to the gown). The gloves are system so I was unable to wear them with my slink hands, but the gown was still drop dead gorgeous even without the gloves, so I wasn’t worried a bit!

Got Your Gowns Right Here 3

This FREE summery little dress by The White Armory was behind advent door number 8 is called Summer Breeze (of course!), and is perfect for picnics in the park, Sunday walks, ladies in waiting, and much much more! It is a fully mesh dress in all the standard sizes with a few small flexi pieces which attach to the skirt at bottom to add flair and flow, so this dress will work perfectly for both system and mesh bodies.

Got Your Gowns Right Here 2

This FREE gown is the gift for Day 2 on the advent calendar and is from The White Armory‘s Birthstone Collection, called Sublime Spirit Birthstone Gown December. It is perfect if you are still rocking your system body, and though it does not feature any mesh parts, the flexi layers are so well crafted that it falls and flows perfectly to make for a gorgeous ball gown or roleplay gown fit for a princess or elven queen, (or a vain fey like Astrid!).

Got Your Gowns Right Here 4

This FREE White Armory gown was behind door number 6 and is aptly called “She’s So Dangerous” and actually has several options (not all are shown). While it works as a gown with a flexi skirt, it also has a pants option as well. The pants option is mesh as is the top in all the standard sizes, so if you are looking for an outfit that will work for a system body OR your mesh body this one will fit either one!

What I love about this outfit is the versatility. It is literally 3 outfits in one package… with two different dress options and one pant-suit option, and can pass for medieval… or is just ‘modern’ enough to fly for sci-fi!

10L Jacket Sneak Attack

Snapshot_009Hey there Fabulouses! Pru and I came across a couple of 10L jackets by Ricielli on the marketplace that we both think you MUST have!

We headed out to take some photos for you so that you could get a good look at them, at least that’s what I thought we were headed there to do!  Low and behold, Pru had other plans and got me good with a snowball sneak attack.

I am so going to get her back for this the next chance I get and it will need to be done when she least expects it, but for now… a truce.
Snapshot_006Now about those jackets… Pru’s Ricielli jacket is called Bryn and is available in a two pack of pink and blue which you can find [HERE].  The jacket I am wearing is called Bo and is available in a pack of seven colours [HERE].  Again – both for just 10L!

It’s A Fawny Wonderland

Snapshot_003
I think the December round of The Arcade Gacha is my favourite round, because not only is everything holiday themed, but there is always a tree filled with FREE GIFTS!  I fought my way in the other day, picked them all up, and am opening a few a day – what a treat!

Today I am showing off a couple of items I played for and a couple of gifts!  My sassy bobbed hair today can be found as a free gift at The Arcade by Lamb  and is called Baby Blue.  It includes a few colour huds, so I am sure your shade, or close to it is in there!

The Fawny gacha machine is where you can find the Wonderland Relaxing Deer and my holdable Wonderland Cat at 75L per play, but also by Fawny (under the tree), you can find this cute lavender mesh boat neck sweater as a free Christmas gift!

ps.  Don’t worry if you can’t get in, they will be available all month and it’s easier to get in later in the round.

Muy Bueno Group Gifts!

Snapshot_004Hi there Fabulous readers!  I must be on a red and white kick… Either that or the designers offering gifts are lol.  Tis the season :)  I have some festive goodies to show you today, like the Damselfly Kirby hairstyle that you can pick up as a free Advent gift (Day 3) at the Kittycats Advent Calendar.  This is available for men and women, comes in a full fatpack of shades and also includes a texture change hud that allows for several different holiday printed beanies!
Snapshot_003My Fringe Boots in Red and my animated cup (comes in naughty and nice – you decide) are free group gifts from Bueno, which has a free to join group!  I actually love these boots so much that I have purchased them previously in other colours, so it was a real treat to me to be able to have the Christmas version for free!  Need the socks too?  These Lydia socks are on sale for just 37L per pair for a limited time only at Fri.day for The Mix.  I have worn these before as well in different colours after picking them up as a new release, but picked up more with the sale!!  I love these in boots and heels!
Snapshot_001I hate that I left news of this adorable pup for last.  This is definitely one of those last but not least instances, because check  out this little French Bulldog by O.M.E.N.  You can pick up your overy own handsome little guy at The Arcade Gacha event as a free gift under the Christmas Tree.  With eyes like that, how can you pass him up?  …  and look at his spotty little nose… awwww.   I just want to pick him up.  It’s a sweet memorial to those lost and healing from the Paris attacks.

Lilies in The Snow

Snapshot_001
Good morning Fabulous readers! Today I am showing off the stunning Arumm Lily Dress and flower accessories by Snowpaws that you can pick up as a free Peace on Earth Hunt prize.  All you need to do is locate that little globe hunt icon, and you’ll be set!

This beautiful set includes the flowing white dress in standard mesh sizing, chest lilies and the lily hair accessory.  I think you could get away with wearing this in the winter or the summer, and wouldn’t it be a great wedding dress? ;)  Just an idea!
