Noir

I’m still feeling sort of ‘fantasy fantastic’ today… or would that be Fabulous Fantasy?

Noir

Anyway. I found a new to me area that is having a nifty little hunt: The Fall of Man Sim. Kind of a foreboding name but you’ll find all sorts of fun fantasy type shops there and until August 31, a Back to School Hunt! I found this gorgeous black gown and attached cape from Oi Bae! and its the 1L prize for the hunt. This is the ‘Dragon Gown’ and it comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL. The belt is a separate piece and it also comes in XS-XL.

I’m going to steal something Gabriel found while checking out the L’Homme group gifts. The butterflies I’m dancing with today are the free gift from Zibska for the L’Homme readers. “Flurtur Noir” comes with the large ‘orbit’ of black butterflies, plus a smaller orbit from one shoulder. The gift also includes a lovely crown made of black butterflies that I’m not wearing today. The L’Homme group is free to join and you can jo9in from the kiosk in the participating merchants shops.

 

Edited to fix my misspelling the name of the store! Oi indeed… guess I needed another cup of coffee before I blogged😛

I Heart Purple

I Heart Purple

It’s safe to say I love when a new PurpleMoon Creations group gift is released… and the Freda gown that is available now is no exception. This purple sequined beauty is amazing! It includes the main mesh dress which I’m showing you, plus several add ons — system and omega applier gloves, and a flexi skirt which I opted to leave off because I liked the sleek look of the skirt without it.

This dress comes in all the standard sizes, plus standard fitmesh sizes, as well as Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. The PurpleMoon group costs 50L to join, but you’ll see regular group gifts for your fee (and this one gift alone is well worth that sum!).

I Heart Purple 2

I always try to add a little sparkle to my outfits with jewelry. This dress didn’t need much, but I found what I was looking for at Zuri Rayna. Just not exactly in the form I expected! The SL Frees & Offers group gift there (the group is FREE to join) is a FREE belly piercing! But…. a little imagination had me imagining this Chantelle’s Heart Belly Piercing as a pair of earrings.

To get the same look, you’ll need to make a copy of the piercing and then use the ‘attach to’ option in your inventory to attach one to your avatar’s right ear and one to the left. Then resize each new “earring” by downsizing it 20%. Edit the new “earring” into its proper place and voila! You could always wear it as a Belly piercing too of course, just be sure to make one extra copy that you don’t edit!😉

An Easter Formal

I think my alt-er ego Loki felt bad about our earlier camping trip… because he took me for a sunrise formal dance this morning at a beautiful spot! We even wore matching formals… how cute is that! (Nope, I will never let him live it down!… I’m sure he’ll get me back later!)

An Easter Formal

Right now is the perfect time to be a member of Tiffany’s Designs for both men and women. For just 50L for your group membership, Ladies you can pick up this Emily gown in purple. It includes system layers as well as appliers for TMP, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and Belleza, as well as a flexi skirt with a lovely flow and finish. You also get a set of gold jewelry (a necklace and earrings) which I am not showing in these pictures. This gift is FREE with your Tiffany’s membership. You will have to pay the gift terminal 1L to get the gift, but your 1L will be immediately refunded.

Your date can match you for your formal dance perfectly in his Rey suit from Tiffany’s in this fantastic purple color that is the exact same shade as the Emily gown. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and like the Emily gown is a FREE gift with Tiffany Designs group membership (50L group fee). So take your fella to Tiffany’s to pick up this amazing suit!

An Easter Formal 2

Chop Zuey has put out some fresh gifts for our Easter baskets and I wanted a touch of color for my dress and so I nabbed up this Sweetness set. The Sweetness Necklace is a FREE group gift (350L group membership required – but remember, gifts are frequent and plentiful!) but the earrings are a FREE to all gift as a lovely courtesy set out for FabFree members. You can just hop over to Chop Zuey and buy the matching earrings for 0L, no group slot required.

That’s it for now… I have a date and dance to enjoy. Happy Sunday!

Flowers in Betty’s Boudoir

Flowers in Betty's Boudoir 1

If you need a romantic gown for the upcoming Valentine’s weekend — or for any occasion — now is your chance to pick up a Junbug classic as a FREE group gift. If you stop by Junbug‘s main-store location, the current group gift is this stunning Betty’s Boudoir in sky blue brocade. You’ll need to wear your group tag (200L to join the group) but when you consider the gifts and benefits, the sum is worth joining the group.

This gown is highly detailed mesh in all the standard sizes. The corset has stunning ribbons and buttons down the front that are perfect for romance. I did pair mine with a lacy underlay for added romance, but the gown is also perfect just by itself.

Flowers in Betty's Boudoir 2

The devil is in the details as they say! But this deal is certainly heavily! Stop by ECCO main-store next where you can get two perfectly FREE gifts of jewelry to go with your new gown! My simply stunning Pearl Swoosh Earrings are a FREE gift exclusively for members of the FabFree Group. Just wear your FabFree tag (it’s FREE to join the group!) to pick these up! Not only are they delicate and lovely, but they also include a texture change hud with five color choices!

My hair clip is another generous FREE gift, this time ECCO is giving it FREE as part of SL frees & offers. Wear your SL frees & offers group tag (also FREE to join) and you can pick up this lovely Jewels Hair Flower in three metal choices!

Like all group gifts they won’t last forever… be sure to hurry over and pick them up while they are available!

Winter Blues

“I’ll have a blue Christmas without you
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won’t be the same, dear, if you’re not here with me” [Elvis]

Elvis is in the snow! Err… in the pavilion. Err… in the house! Okay so this dress has me singing the blues, but not in a bad way! And you’ll be singing the blues too once you see how perfect this gown is for winter blues!

Winter Blues 1

“And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That’s when those blue memories start calling
You’ll be doin’ all right with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas” [Elvis]

A white holiday is traditional, but a blue one is stunning, especially in this gorgeous gown from The Beautiful Ones .:TBO:. called Selina Long Tail in Turquoise. One of the things I loved best about this formal holiday gown is that not only did it come in all the standard mesh sizes, but it also came in several fitted mesh sizes which accommodated my fuller and curvy avatar figure! Yay! I didn’t have to slim down my sliders at all to fit into this dress which just thrilled me!

You’ll find that there are two great ways you can take this dress home for the holidays when you stop by the TBO main-store. You can either pick it up as a FREE group gift (the group is 25L to join with later group gifts to pick up) OR if you are low on group space you can pick it up for the tiny fee of just 10L instead without the group join. A very nice offer indeed!

Winter Blues 2

“You’ll be doin’ all right with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas” [Elvis]

[MUSE] NSP Florals was doing it right in blue for their December gift as well with this lovely choker and earrings gift set which you can pick up FREE with your group tag (the group is 75L to join if you are not already a member, but offers beautiful monthly gifts for your small fee). This set is fully adjustable and resizable for the perfect fit and has a lustrous, almost snowflake affect that makes it perfect for holiday parties.

Who said white was the color of the season? Give me that blue, blue holiday. Sing it, Elvis!

Cocoa Island Violets With A Twist

Cocoa Island Violets with a Twist [1]

Neville Bell: Oh no, you can’t take my photograph.
Sue Charlton: Oh, I’m sorry, you believe it will take your spirit away.
Neville Bell: No, you got lens-cap on it.
– Crocodile Dundee (1986)

So I went a little crocodile Dundee this week (as you can see) but it was well worth my while and I think I would make even Sue Charlton proud! The Twisted Hunt is not quite over yet, though you’ll need to hurry to get any of the last minute gifts you want. You’ve got until Oct 19th, to finish this wicked hunt for cubes. My dress today is {MOEKO} Elegantly Alternative’s FREE offering for the Twisted Hunt Gift and well worth the difficult walkabout through the jungle of cubes.

This great gown comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as a lovely (optional) mesh glittery overlay which I couldn’t pass up wearing. After all… even down under, Sue Charlton would not have!

Cocoa Island Violets with a Twist [2]

Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee: If I give my heart to you…
[pause]
Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee: Then I’ll have none and you’ll have two…
– Crocodile Dundee (1986)

And this gorgeous matching jewelry and hat from Lazuri just stole *my* heart! So, I topped off my look with the latest round of FREE offerings from Lazuri which are just stunning to behold. The Cocoa Island Violets jewelry and hat are not to be missed.

If you are not in the group already, the invite will set you back 250L, but the regular gifts make it worthwhile, and even just for this one time, you’re going to get two different necklace styles, two different bracelet styles, two different earring styles, two different ring styles, and the hat. All are resizable and all have a color change Hud with different shades of violet, lavender, indigo, purple, etc.!

Winter is Coming for A Tiffany’s Bride

Sure, you could have a June wedding – but winter is coming. And for me there is something magical about the idea of a white wedding. And even if you aren’t planning a winter wedding… these gifts are too fabulous to pass up!

A Tiffany's Bride [1]

Right now if you stop by Tiffany Designs you can use your group tag to pick up this shimmering Jocey Bridal Gown in white for only 1L (the group is 50L to join). It includes Maitreya, TMP and Slink appliers as well as system layers for the body portion of the gown and though I’m usually a mesh-fan girl… this dress is perfect in flexi. Mesh could NOT have given this dress the ‘flow’ it needed with the glittering affect that the designer added into the flexi pieces, which are simply breathtakingly beautiful for your special day (or any formal dance really).

A Tiffany's Bride [2]

To add a little more sparkle to my Tiffany Design Jocey Bridal head piece, I hopped over to the Swank event, where I discovered that Zuri Rayna was giving away this lovely head piece in steel blue called Madeline. It is completely FREE, no group required. Just stop by the booth at Swank and pick it up!

And if that isn’t enough to convince you that all your second life dreams have come true, just check out this skin that Astrid is wearing? For me it was love at first sight! Who needs a groom? I love the soft freckles, the lovely shade of the lips, and the definition to the collarbones. And this Women’s Stuff Hunt gift from the Deluxe Body Factory was not only completely FREE but also contained Slink and Omega body appliers plus additional Omega lipstick appliers!

A Tiffany's Bride [3]

Of course… what wedding would be complete without a honeymoon? And Tiffany Designs didn’t let me down. Be sure to stop by the front desk on your way out and pick up this sexy Sara Lingerie in green for FREE (no group required for this one). This lovely little number came with system layers as well as Maitreya and TMP appliers to complete your look.

I also topped off my evening look with this sultry long loop necklace I found on Marketplace by Miam Miam. It is only 10L and has 15 color change options (I am showing the green because it matched the lingerie). It’s a piece of jewelry I’m sure I will find myself wearing again and again with that kind of versatility!

Envy Me…

She’s classic, elegant… and the life of the party. The gentlemen all want to dance with her… and the ladies all envy her…

Envy Me [1]

And if you stop by Junbug‘s quick as can be, you can pick up the Lady Crawley gown in Envy, and be envied too, because Junbug is celebrating 10,000 Facebook likes and 4,500 Group Members with this lovely formal mesh gown as their in-store gift!

Envy Me [2]

… and she has that certain touch of je ne sais quoi that makes those in the room pause… perhaps stare…

Or maybe it’s the breathtaking jewelry that bedecks her slender neck and wrists… which can be yours as well if you drop by Chop Zuey and pick up their newest Group Gift! This To The Daisy Grey Set (which includes a stunning necklace, ring, bracelets, and earrings) is breathtakingly detailed and perfect for any formal occasion!

Here’s how you too can step out in style…

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars

This week was a twice in a blue moon week! As I have several special gifts to show you, two of which are from “Moons”.

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [1]

Your first stop will be at PurpleMoon Creations to pick up this stunning gown. The group is 50L to join but so worth it considering that the gifts (like this gown with its gorgeous detailing around the neck) are stunning and free once you join. This gown also includes glove appliers for Slink Physique and Omega as well, and not only the standard fitted mesh sizes but also a fitted mesh dress too!

My next “Moon” was Moon Hair where I got lucky with the Lucky Letter Boards as my letter came up! My gorgeous hair (called Spit at the Stars) is on the boards there at present in the back room. The Boards require the group which is 100L to join, but again, its a group well worth joining. Not only do you get access to the Lucky Letter boards, but also to many lovely present and past gifts which are setting on the counter in the Main room. Lots of beautiful new hairs for you! This Lucky Letter Board hair was in Naturals 1 and it is snazzy!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [2]

For a look this good I needed some terrific jewelry, which I was able to find over at Lazuri. There are some items out that require the group tag to pick up, but if you look off to the left of those, this Perlline Necklace Set is completely FREE – no group required – and color change too! There is a matching set of earrings too (they are hidden under my hair) and the earrings are just as pretty.

If you get the chance, take time to visit PixelArt Photogardens where I took these pictures. The scenery is stunning!

See you next Sunday!

BYRNE – The Instruments Gift

Sunset

Happy Sunday Fab Free! Today I have another Fabulous creation from BYRNE to share with you. This gorgeous gown and matching hat are a current FREE gift at The Instruments. I had a serious “My Fair Lady” moment in this fully mesh dress and elaborate hat. It is easy to imagine yourself as a modern day Eliza Doolittle while wearing this great dress.  I love the two slits in the front of the skirt and the sort of smokey lace-like pattern. The dress alone is just beautiful on, and the addition of the hat adds a bit of a dramatic yet elegant flair. This event will run until August 6th, and there are several gifts to be had simply by wearing your “The Instruments. the event” tag. The group is FREE to join.
