Dressed Up from The Free Dove

091522 - Dressed Up from The Free Dove - 01

The Free Dove, as most of you probably already know (since its been blogged numerous times here), has been around for nearly 18 years. It is the SLife’s work of ⒹoⓋє (palomma.casanova) and she has poured her heart and soul into it. You must join the group and wear the tag, it’s free to join, and once you do then you can click on all the gifts that you want on the bottom floor of the venue.

For this post I decided to get dressed there. Don’t worry, I kept clothes on…but as I shopped I picked up things I wanted to share with you and worked to coordinate them together to see how much of a look I could create. Please note there are loads of other awesome items too that I could have continued with but did not want to totally overwhelm you.

  • The first thing is this pretty little black dress from REED. Aline blogged it back in February of 2021 in the animal print, so go check out her styling too! The dress is fit for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya Physique and Venus bodies. The HUD allows you to change it between 6 prints/colors.
  • REED also has the heels I’m wearing. They also are fit for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya Physique and Venus bodies and have 6 colors on the HUD.

There are four other free things to show you still. I had to accessorize this look, of course.

  • One more item set from REED is the jewelry. My bracelet, necklace (and hiding earrings) are all available in one box and are unrigged and resizeable.
  • Next, my hair is a gift from FAGA. It comes in large and small, has 4 style choices on the HUD and 82 colors! There are more customization options on the HUD, too. Caroline wore it in another color back in August of last year.
  • Finally for my makeup: my nails are a gift from GO! Makeup fit for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, Signature Alice and Slink. The HUD gives 8 nail polishes to wear. And my lipstick is a sampler from Shiny Stuffs with 3 red colors. They are for Lelutka Evo & Evo X only.

Until next time!

  • I’ve also added the nail gift from GO! Makeup. These lovely, long mesh nails come with an HUD that gives seven neutral color options. I thought they worked great with this dress. The nails are fit for Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya, Signature Alice, and Slink.
  • Opulein is offering the lipstick and the set includes 20 pink and red options on appliers for Lelutka Evo and Lelutka Evo X. They are really quite beautiful.

Dirty Creola Callahan

V8 Underground FF & 3rd life GG- A1_001 copy

Hello you Fabulous readers! I’ve returned from a short bout of sleeping sickness. Not the kind caused by the tsetse fly; just the kind that hits you like a truckload of bricks making you want to sleep the day away. I’m better now. : -) 

Lets talk about good vs bad. Over time there have been many different ideas about one or the other. But who decides? Good is associated with qualities like selflessness, kindness, benevolence, morality, and compassion while bad or evil denotes actions such as selfishness, cruelty, wickedness, immorality, etc. I couldn’t decide which way I wanted to go to show off two gifts from V8 Underground that can let you be either or both. I think one can have a little of both. 

The “Good” 

In the picture on the right I’m wearing the V8 Underground Alysia Nerri White BDSM outfit. It’s the free gift for Fabulously Free in SL group that as most of you know is free to join. If you love to turn heads then you need this outfit. Since it’s white it can be seen as “good” but it sure is wicked looking. Sometimes it’s good to be a little bad. One of the things I’ve always loved about V8 Underground is that you purchase an outfit is that everything is usually included. Think shoes or boots, clothing, jewelry, and even make up at times. Alysia Nerri comes with the bodysuit and boots.

Sizes

  • Maitreya Lara and Petite
  • Legacy Classic and Perky

The “Bad”

The outfit pictured on the right is the Kyara Bad Girl Style also from V8 Underground. It is a free gift for the Third Life group that has a join fee of only $10L. And oh my! Don’t I look “bad” in the outfit? I think I’m channeling Dirty Harry Callahan. Donning my mirrored aviator glasses and huge automatic weapon I dare anyone to cross me!

Did you know that mirrored sunglasses can be used as a rear view mirror if you remove them on the pretext of cleaning them? The best advantage is that no one can see your eyes or where you’re looking. In this package you’ll find boots, bodysuit, hat, sunglasses, gloves, makeup layer, and even a cigar! I wasn’t in a smoking mood so the cigar is not shown. Oh yeah! I forgot about the leg holster with the huge automatic weapon – “Go ahead, make my day!” 

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • SLink Hourglass and Physique
  • Omega & SLink Appliers
  • System layers
  • BOM & Omega Appliers for makeup

The Sweet Life

7-5-2022 Blink2wink CMH & HBH 3_001

Ahhhh, sweet, sweet watermelon! One of the best treats on a hot summer day. I can still hear the fruit truck vendor speakers calling out “Watermelon – red to the rind!” You just HAD to buy one. Here in Louisiana we have at least one Watermelon Festival to honor the deliciousness. I don’t know anything about the watermelon eating habits of the folks in the northern climes but the southern folks love it.

Juicy & Delectable

A few days ago I donned my hunting gear and set out to scour the grid for prizes. I’ve got to tell ya there are some sweet prizes out there. Blink2Wink is currently participating in both the Beached Bunny Hunt 12 & Cheeky Monkey Hunts “Life’s a Beach 2‘ Hunt”. Finding both hunt items brings you the tres cool (as in beating the heat cool) Watermelon top & skirt for only $1L each! How can you pass this up? It’s totally summery! As you can see below there are sizes for many mesh bodies.

Blink2Wink is one of our Fabulous Designers and often sets out gifts for FabFree. So please visit the store and support the designer.

Sizes

  • Alice
  • Altamura
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Kupra
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya
  • SLink Hourglass & Physique

Well fabbies & friends that’s it for today. Have a sweet day!

Dressed for Brunch

Brillancia Top & skirt $30L Sun 6/5/22

A Sunday brunch with friends is always a pleasure. We went to Brennan’s Restaurant on Royal  Street in the Vieux Carré. Mmm, love those mimosas and Bananas Foster, a delicious conconction of bananas, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, rum, banana liqueur and vanilla ice cream flamed at your table. After all that yumminess I had to hail a cab so I could get home and fall into a food coma.

Stuffed

Dining at a world famous restaurant is an occasion to dress to the nines! Luckily I was able to nab this sophisticated ensemble, Olivia, from Brillancia for a total of $60L (the top & skirt are separates priced at $30L each). I’m wearing the chocolate color but there are a number of colors to choose from at the store. It fits my Maitreya body like a glove!
Note: This is the $30L Saturday offering. It’s still available as of this posting.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Kupra, Kups
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite

Hope your week is filled with goodness & yummy things!

Pride@Home 2022

Hello again Fabulouses! Pride at Home/Second Pride opened today with a bang running until June 12th. Though on the surface it seems like a huge party it’s actually all about raising funds for IGLA -EUROPE & BROADWAY CARES/EQUITY FIGHTS AIDS. If you click either of these links you can read about the work of these organizations and you’ll quickly understand why this is a fundraiser.

There is still fun to be had with DJs, dancing, shopping, several sims to explore, and gifts. And don’t forget sharing the love regardless of your sexuality. Love is love after all.

Gifties!

I am wearing four of the event gifts:

Free *NeverWish* Pride Glitter Heart Top for HG, Legacy/Petite, Kupra, Maitreya/Petite, Reborn

The Things We’ve Made

The Things We've Made

I’ve seen some strange things in Second Life in my time.  You know, like twin cat women, or a seagull smoking a cigar, or even a giant tree that threw sap at passers-by.  What an odd world we’ve all created together!  There are also beautiful places, magical places, and dreamy places.  Winter Moon is where I went to find a bit of solace today!

Midnight

There’s a new subscriber gift at Wasabi!  This long hair and hat are just what the doctor ordered today, and it’s completely free!  To get your own copy, just click on the board above the display of gifts (it’s on your left when you enter the store) and then click on the gift box.  It was so easy I thought I must have done something wrong, but nope… there it was in my inventory!  All too easy.

Ramen Time

This long and quite revealing dress is the latest group gift from Ramen.  I had to add the little pasties for a bit of modesty, but perhaps long hair might also do the trick… Anyway, it’s spooky, red, and super sexy!  Get it for free when you join their free group.  There are also a few other gifts while you’re there.

Sizes

  • Kupra Bimbo
  • Kupra
  • Maitreya

What are your magical spots in SL?

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

For anyone who doesn’t know, the title of this post and my photo are a quote from the movie Pretty Woman starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. If you have seen the movie, it will make sense. If you haven’t, well I highly suggest you add it to your movie list. The shopping scene is one of the best in the movie in my opinion.

That said, I feel like this is how I would have looked lugging home all of the free gifts at the current round of Vanity. I also of course happen to be wearing a few. All the gifts are free, you just need to join the Vanity event group. The group is free to join. I picked three of the many free gifts to share with you that I thought really went well together. The outfit I am wearing is from Queenz, my sunnies are from Avada, and this lip color is from GO Makeup. Lastly I also picked up a little bit of bling by Clever & Cool on the Marketplace to wear with these high-waisted pants. Keep reading for more details, and peep the credits at the end.

Queenz

I wouldn’t dare try to pull off all this white in my real life, however here in Second Life it’s such a win. This cropped top with ruffled sleeves, and the matching pants are the free gift at Vanity by Queenz. The pieces can be worn together or separately. Also, the top comes in a version sans the sleeves. The pants (since I cropped them out of the photo) are fitted through the waist and hips, then are a long loose-leg pant.

Sizes Included: Yentaments BBL Body, Maitreya Lara, Ebody Curvy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, 9S Jessica, Sking Katena

Avada 

The way a lot of people feel about shoes, I feel about sunglasses. There’s no such thing as too many pairs. These are the free Vanity group gift by Avada. They have resize scripts and a texture hud. The hud gives you 5 solid color choices for the frames, 7 options for the lenses, and 2 metal choices.

GO Makeup 

I love this mini HD lip palette by GO Makeup. It comes with 4 juicy red lip shades that scream summer. They also are free at Vanity with the Vanity group tag. This set comes in appliers for Catwa HD Lips and Genus HD Lips. For Catwa head wearers, this means you’ll need the free HD Lips add-on if you do not already have it. Don’t have HD Lips with your head yet? Head over to Catwa and get a redelivery, you need an upgrade! Here’s an awesome tutorial by Virtual Bloke about Catwa HD Lips and how to use them. For Genus head wearers, I believe the HD option is included in your hud.

Clever & Cool 

Finally, I felt like this outfit needed a little something extra. Thankfully I came across this cute gemstone belly chain by Clever & Cool for just 25 linden on the Marketplace. It has resize scripts built in, as well as lots of texture choices. I think it looks pretty cute as a belt, and is well worth the paltry price tag. If this one isn’t your style, there are a few others with the same price point, as well as several other types of jewelry.
