Where the Wild Flowers Grow

Where the Wild Flowers Grow

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend!  Ripley and I started it off with a long walk in the woods at the beautiful Hobbiton Sim.  If you haven’t visited there, it’s well worth the trip.  The landscaping is beautifully done, and there are so many lovely spots to snap pictures, as well as places for dancing, chatting, and even some light-hearted role play.

Let Us Dance in The Sun With Wildflowers in Our Hair

For only 10L each, I created a casual and care free, bohemian summer look with a sweet top and denim micro mini from the Baci Shop stand at The Cart Wash.  The Babado top left my shoulders free to soak up some sun rays, and draped in soft folds to end above my waist.  Ric rac trim added a playful finishing touch to the bottom hemline.  Trendy and chic, a crop top is a summer wardrobe must-have, in my book.  Just in case white isn’t your style, the package includes a HUD with 80 choices so you can tint your Babado top to your liking.  The white hue of the shirt coordinated beautifully with my micro mini skirt.  The soft touch of lace trim helped tie together the outfit and added a romantic feel.

Playing off the bohemian vibe, I chose to wear a crown of daisies in my hair and held a bouquet of wildflowers for my photo, which I found at the La & Li Style shop on the Marketplace for only 35L.  A pretty, yellow, animated butterfly is included with the posies.  The cute little critter slowly flapped its wings, as it perched on a daisy.  If you’d like to wear a different hairstyle, an orchid for your hair is nestled inside the box for you to tuck in your tresses.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in sizes XS, M, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Uh Oh…

As I have been sitting here writing my post, some clods of dirt just sailed through the air at the edge of my vision. Ripley, tired of waiting for me to finish, wandered off and decided to do some excavating in a flowerbed at the Broadfoot Residence.  Oh dear, I’d better go see if I can repair the damages… I do hope we won’t be in too much trouble!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Dancing on My Own

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a lovely, relaxing weekend.  While in the midst of our wanderings through the grid, Ripley and I came across a fantastic group gift that I just had to tell you about!  I blogged earlier this month {HERE} about a previous gift from Arcane Spellcaster.  The generous designer has replaced Spring Blue with a free 500L gift card for members of the Arcane Spellcaster AK Creations group.  No, that wasn’t a typo!  If you joined the group after my previous post, switch back to the group tag, teleport over, and claim your very own gift card worth 500L.  If you aren’t yet a member, the join fee is 250L, but you can scoop up some lovely items on a shopping spree!

So Many Possibilities

Typically with group gifts, you don’t get a choice in what item you receive, so I thoroughly enjoyed wandering around the store, and checking out all my options.  The lovely Patricia gown immediately caught my eye, and when I slipped it on, Ripley wagged his tail with approval.  With slender shoulder straps, a lace-covered midsection, and a long, curve-hugging skirt, this dress is pure elegance.  I love the way the translucent overlay adds a lace texture over the trailing skirt.  Also included in the package are gauzy sleeves, and a pearl necklace, which I opted not to wear for my photo.  The gift comes with a HUD with four textures; you can color the entire outfit the same as I have done, or use a different hue for the bra, dress and sleeves.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitted Mesh
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

If Patricia is not your style, there are *plenty* of other options to choose from at Arcane Spellcaster.  I had a tough time deciding which pieces to add to my inventory.  I’m sure you’ll find an outfit that catches your eye.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Butterfly Kisses

Spread Your Wings and Fly

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to Hobbiton this week, and I had the magical experience of having a butterfly alight on my outstretched hand as I stood in a garden of wildflowers.  If you haven’t traveled to this lovely sim, it’s well worth the trip!  Modeled after the Tolkien tales, and filled with whimsical references to scenery from the novels, Thunder Dragon Island offers optional, light-hearted role play, a peaceful setting, and spots for couples scattered throughout its landscape.

A Jeans and Tee Kind of Girl

Since I knew we would be exploring the wonders of nature, I opted for a casual spring look for our journey to the land of Bilbo Baggins.  I assembled my outfit from free group gifts available at My Style, and it was perfect for the mild spring weather we encountered.  The strappy, cream colored Kelly top  kept my shoulders free to feel the dappled sunshine.  I particularly enjoyed the loose-fitting satiny texture of the fabric.  My well-worn capris continued the carefree theme.  Complete with rolled cuffs, a buff colored belt, and a realistic, faded texture that echoed the milky hue of my tank, these pants are sure to become a spring wardrobe staple for me.  Both items of clothing are available completely for free as group gifts at the My Style store.  Simply swap over to the Avangardista tag for the Kelly tank and the My Style tag to scoop up the trousers.  If you’re currently not a member of either group, don’t let that stop you, as both groups have 0L join fees!

Included With the Kelly Top:

  • Fitmesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Included With the RAF Jeans:

  • Fitmesh for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique and Slink
  • Fitmesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Time for a Game of Fetch

My peaceful encounter with my new butterfly friend did not last long, as it was soon disturbed by a canine pal dropping a branch on my toes (ouch, Ripley!).  As the beautiful winged creature fluttered away, Rip gave a joyful woof and nudged the stick, just in case I hadn’t noticed its crash landing.  Guess I’d better indulge in his favorite past time in order to save my pedicure.  Until next time, happy shopping!
