The Magic of a Red Dress

Hey You With The Red Dress On

Happy Weekend, Fab Free! I hope you are finding time to relax and take it easy. Ripley and I discovered a new-to-us store this week called Celestinas Weddings. The generous designer is currently offering this stunning outfit as a free gift to members of the Celestinas group, which is free to join. Everything I’m wearing in my photo, from the gorgeous diamond earrings to my high heels, is included in the gift, plus a really pretty bouquet to hold that I chose not to wear for my pic.

Everything for Free

Although this looks like a gorgeous gown, Valentina is actually composed of two separates – a lacy, long sleeved top and an elegant, full length, curve-hugging skirt. The crimson-hued fabric of the skirt has a slight sheen and is accented with lighter red areas which resemble drops of dew on rose petals. I love the look of the slightly flared hemline, which sweeps just above the floor. The sheer top features a scalloped edge. The two components pair beautifully together, but can also be mixed and matched with other items in your wardrobe. Large, dangling heart shaped diamond earrings and delicate gem studded heels, also tucked into the gift folder, complete the look. A bouquet of roses and babies’ breath tied with a simple red ribbon can be added to your left hand if you so desire. To pick up a copy of this free ensemble for yourself, teleport over to Celestinas Weddings, activate the group tag, and tap the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Cinnamon Candy

Cinnamon Candy

I know I’m a bit late for the Lunar New Year but I just stumbled across this great little Hunt going on at the shops of Solara. This is a fun little hunt you can do in one sitting but you’ll still bag some great loot. So let’s celebrate the Lunar New Year Hunt!

Red Hot Cinnamon Candy

Remember those? With today being Valentines Day, you might have had few of ’em already. And I feel like a ‘Red Hot’ in this sweet red outfit. I put this look together from two different prize gifts from Caboodle: the holo-rific Cassi Tee and the Jarhly Jog set pants. The Cassi tee comes in shades of holo glimmer Purple, Lemon-Lime, Mermaid Blue and the Rose Gold I’m wearing. The pants are from a two piece set: The Jarhly Jog set which is super cute on it’s own.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

The Lunar New Year Hunt at Solara only runs until February 19th so don’t delay.

My Valentine

My Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day, Fabulouses!  As you can see, I’m spending the holiday in the company of my true Valentine:  Ripely.  I found the perfect clothing for today as I was moving along the trail of the Puppy Love Hunt.  For just 1 Linden dollar and a bit of time hunting around the Southern Sass shop, I came away with a complete outfit.  Now that’s what I call budget-friendly fashion!

Casually Cute

To add the Puppy Love Sweatshirt and Skinny Jeans outfit to your inventory, you’ll be looking for the tiny pet bed concealed in the Southern Sass store.  The prize package includes a cozy sweatshirt with three quarter length sleeves and a cropped hemline.  Two red paw prints and the text “My dog IS my valentine” proclaim to the whole world who holds your heart.  Yep, the pupster certainly has me wrapped around his paw!  Coordinating skinny jeans match the red in the shirt’s graphic, and round out the outfit.  Each piece is worn separately, so you can mix and match with other items in your wardrobe if you like.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Our wish for you on this day of love is that you have a wonderful holiday today.  ❤  Until next time, happy hunting!

There’s No Truer Love Than Puppy Love

Puppy Love

Hello there, Fabulouses!  In a recent post, Love stated that sweetness is her weakness, but for me, I would have to say my weakness is…. dogs and puppies!  No surprise there, right? 😉 While Ripley and I were enjoying a lazy afternoon at the NorderNey sim, I couldn’t resist scooping up this little ball of fluff for a quick cuddle before he left with his owner.  Isn’t he just adorable?  There’s nothing truer in the world than the love of a good dog, so it’s quite fitting that my top today features the word “LOVE.”

The Hunt Continues!

I picked up my cute tee for free over at the Valentine’s Hunt at the Justice store.  Until Valentine’s Day, you can search around the shop for 12 small hearts hidden all around.  Each of the hunt objects is set to sale for zero Linden dollars and contains a fantastic prize.  I’ve already shared a couple of them here and here.  If you have some spare time and are looking for some delightful gifts, I’d recommend you check out the event before it all comes to a close on Valentine’s Day.  The Brandy Shirt hugs your curves and features a gathered hemline with ties dangling down.  With a scoop neck and short sleeves, this is definitely a warmer weather top, but it was ideal for our trip to the shore.  A heart formed from black stripes, as well as the word “LOVE” spelled in bold, white letters complete the look.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

This is My Happy Place

Finding Sanctuary

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Sunday!  Ripley and I are taking a quick break from the Valentine’s Hunt over at Justice to show you another of the free prizes from the hunt.  I know I said the Opal Tank was my favorite, but maybe, just maybe, I’ve found a new fave!  I don’t know whether this qualifies as a bathing suit, or lingerie, but the pupster decided it was time to play with his seagull friends, and led me to the shore on Sanctuary Isle…. so a bathing suit it is!

Red Hot

Harley, Valentine’s Hunt prize #8 at the Justice store, is a skimpy, super sexy bathing suit (or piece of lingerie) in a gorgeous crimson hue.  Complete with gleaming silver chain accents, this spicy little number is just right for a day of fun whether inside or out.  Best of all, after just a small investment of time, you can pick it up completely for free!  All you have to do is locate the heart shaped hunt object concealed somewhere in the store.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

After we enjoy the picnic lunch we’ve brought along on our beach getaway, Rip and I plan to return and try to ferret out some more of those elusive hearts.  Until next time, happy hunting!

Searching for a Beautiful Heart

In My Heart

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Have you heard about the hunt going on over at the Justice store?  Ripley caught wind of it, and we decided to check it out.  There are 12 hearts hidden around the store priced at just zero linden dollars each.  The pupster and I haven’t yet located all of the hunt items, but the top I am wearing in my photo today is my favorite prize so far!

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The Opal Tank is a cute little number which features super thin spaghetti straps, a satiny sheen and a belt to emphasize your waistline.  A generous hem with softly pleated folds fit perfectly over my capris.  The crimson hue (one of my favorite colors) is just right for Valentine’s day!  The free hunt package, which happens to be prize number 12, contains versions for a number of mesh body types.  For just an investment of time spent hunting in the Justice store, you’ll come away with a vibrant top that I’m sure will become a warmer weather favorite!  The hunt runs until Valentine’s Day, so you have plenty of time to teleport to the shop and do a little sleuthing for yourself.  If you get stumped, you can find hints on the Justice web page, here.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Lasso My Heart for Infinity

What would a Valentine’s Day outfit be without a heart shaped pendant?  I found exactly what I was looking for over at the Grumble store for just 59 Linden dollars.  With a bright red heart dangling from a dark cord decorated with the infinity symbol, this bauble coordinated well with my new top.  If you’d prefer a different color, you can pick up a silver, pink or gold version for just 59 Linden each.  Although it’s just right for V-day, I know I’ll wear this necklace over and over throughout the year.

Back to the Hunt…

Ripley and I are going to head back to Justice and see if we can discover the rest of the elusive hearts scattered throughout the store.  Wish us luck!  Until next time, happy hunting!

At the Meadow’s Edge

Meadow's Edge

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m super excited to share a lovely dress that I picked up as a free group gift. This full length frock is striking and chic – perfect for a fancy evening or just a stroll along the meadow to collect some flowers.

Timeless Elegance

The Dora Dress from Virtue features a strapless bodice, a sleek fit, and a coordinating bow to accentuate your waist.  Its coral hue is soft and flattering to the complexion.  This beauty hugs your curves, yet has a slight flare at the hemline to make movement easy-peasy.  I love the simple design, which allows you the opportunity to embellish with accessories to your heart’s content, or to keep things more minimalistic and polished.  To add Dora to your wardrobe, you need to be a member of the Third Life group, which has a 10L join fee, but members can gather gifts from a variety of merchants across the grid, so it’s well worth the cost.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in S, M, L (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • eBody
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy/Fine

Until next time, happy shopping!
