Today is My Day

Feeling the Magic

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ripley and I roamed the grid and discovered a free complete outfit that we think you’ll enjoy.  It comes from a new-to-me store and I think its a fun casual look just right for a Sunday evening.

Are You Feeling Lucky?

Over at the Mangula shop, there are a 24 lucky boards that require no group membership.  All you have to do is wait for your letter appear and you can pick up the outfit for free.  This adorable Laila set is one of the items you can win if your luck holds out.  The folder includes two top styles and a skirt.  I just love the off the shoulder design and soft blush pink color of the shirt.   The fabric texture of the blouse is really well done and features a checked pattern of delicate holes in the sleeves and body of the top.  The gift includes the bodysuit version of the top, but a separate blouse is included as well.  The skirt’s asymmetrical hemline ends with a torn denim edge that lends a casual flair to the outfit.  Twin butterflies grace its back pockets.  The folder includes versions for several mesh body avatars.  Best of all, it is completely free.  The only thing you will have to invest is a bit of time while you wait for your letter to appear.  If you don’t have a lucky dog like the pupster, you might want to bring along a trusty four leaf clover or lucky penny with you.  🙂

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Lara

I hope your week is off to a wonderful start tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

The gifts do change out so if you need this for your closet, teleport down and grab it!

Elemental Forces

Rose

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I was in the mood for a dramatic pop of color today, and I found it in the sexiest little dress that I picked up as a prize in the Elemental Desire 2 Hunt for just 25 Linden dollars.  I am super excited to share this one with you!

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The Vespera Dress from Ambient Fashion features a curve-hugging style that will have you looking and feeling red-hot.  I just love the cut outs in the front of this frock and the way the back plunges dramatically low.  The fabric has a subtle geometric pattern that catches the light when you move.  This little number is perfect for a Friday date night!  Best of all, the package includes versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars.  To add this racy little mini to your inventory, all you need to do is locate the hunt object – the symbols of fire, air, earth and water on a black background – hidden somewhere in the shop.  In case you get stuck, there is a handy hint giver on the hunt poster on the wall.  If you’re feeling really adventurous, there is also a 1 Linden dollar prize for the same hunt in the store as well.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • eBody Curvy and Classic
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

The Elemental Desires 2 Hunt runs until August 25th, so you still have plenty of time to discover some Fabulous Finds along the trail.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Oh, those Summer Nights

Summer Nights

I have to admit… I am not always a fan of hot summer weather. I don’t like heat and I don’t just get sunburned… I burst into flames after ten minutes in the sun. And yet, I do love the beach…. and I LOVE the summer nights. The relief from the heat, the lightning bugs blinking everywhere, the glory of a full moon. Love it.

Summer Nights

Fashiowl must love summer nights because that’s the latest pack of gorgeous poses that are your for free at The Liaison Collaborative. The pack includes five poses each with a floating lantern prop. You just need to join the Liaison Group and help yourself.

I found a sweet new little dress to enjoy my summer nights in from a New-To-Me designer. This is the “Rori” dress from Pink Mango and it a free gift for Third Life group members.

May All Your Blues Be the Ocean and Sky

Summer Blues

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a lovely Saturday.  Ripley and I paid a visit to the Love Cats sim this morning.  It is truly beautifully done, and if you are looking for a quiet spot to relax, I’d highly recommend it.  Another trip I’d suggest is to the Leigh shop.  I picked up my new frock for free, just for being a member of the Leigh store group.

Darling Damask

The beautiful Desired Dress features a soft floral pattern across a slightly faded background color.  The fabric itself is well done with realistic wrinkles and stitching.  Side slits ensure you can easily maneuver and slender straps allow your shoulders to soak up some summer sunshine.  I chose the blue color variation, but with the enclosed HUD, you can select from 10 options, which you can then tint with 20 additional hues.  This little number is highly customizable, which makes it seem like you are getting an almost endless number of dresses in one folder.  Versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars are included in the gift.  Best of all, since the Leigh group has no join fee, you can truly pick up the Desired Dress completely for free!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Avatar in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer included)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • The Mesh Project Classic

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Unless It’s Got a Dirt Road…

Dirt Road

Hello Fabulouses!  For my walk down a country road with the pupster, I put together a fun, casual outfit with two budget friendly separates that look like they were made for each other.  One of them is a free group gift, and the other is something I can pretty much guarantee you already have in your wardrobe! Sound intriguing?

Rocking Those Polka Dots

After joining the store group at Monomania for 50L, I had a plethora of group gifts just a click away.  The My Sweet Jeans Top practically called my name.  Created in a playful, late summer style with narrow shoulder straps, a bra-like fit and a delightful ruffled hem section, this cropped top features double strands that meet in a bow in back.  Cheery white polka dots grace the medium blue denim fabric.  I don’t know about you, but I am always extra happy when I wear polka dots!  While you are in the shop, you might want to pick up any or all of the *29* other free group gifts on the wall.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Thank You, Monique!

I knew I wanted to slip into high-waisted blue jeans to coordinate with my top, so I did a search for “jeans” in my inventory.  I tried on ALL (and I do mean all) of the jeans I had (queue the Sponge Bob *two hours later* clip), but just could not get the look I was going for.  My coffers were all but empty, so I knew a shopping spree would have to wait.  Desperate, I decided to peruse my “closet” once more.  Down at the bottom of my inventory, in the Initial Outfits of the Library folder, I spotted “Monique Jeans.”  Monique…. it sounds chic, and classy, which happened to be the look I was going for.  What the heck?  I thought, I’ll give it a go….it can’t hurt.  I am *so* glad I did!  I tried to wear the jeans individually, but for some reason, Firestorm wasn’t cooperating, so I just wore the whole avatar.   Now, Monique herself was not a look that I can rock, but her jeans – oh yeah- just what I wanted!  They are the right shade of blue, with slightly flared cuffs, a high buttoned waist, and the price was an absolutely perfect zero Linden dollars.  Piece by piece, I put the real me back on, alphaed out my legs, added the top, and was completely satisfied with the end result.  I hope you like it too!

Until next time, Fabulous Readers, happy shopping!

An Apple a Day

An Apple a Day

I can’t really speak to the idea that you need an apple a day. Though I do love apples…  I can say with utter confidence that a Group Gift a day will make you happy happy happy!

On Top

Seniha has updated the free Group Gift board for August with this super cute little top: ‘Kala’. You get two versions, the floral I’m showing and a striped version. They’re both so cute… I had a hard time choosing which one to show off!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

Shorting Out

Justice has also set out a new Group Gift for us. These are the ‘Monica’ shorts and you can pick them up ( along with several other past gifts) for free with your group tag. You’ll get a HUD with the shorts to change the color of the side laces to match whatever you’re wearing on top. One note, you’ll need to pay the Group Gift board 1L to get your gift but it’s immediately refunded.

Sizes Included

Lazy Dog Dayz

Dog Days
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Real life decided to rear its ugly head and dragged me away from SL for awhile, but I sure am glad to be back!  Ripley and I have two sweet hunt gifts to share with you this evening.  I hope you like them as much as I do.  The only caveat is that the hunt ends tomorrow, August 5th, so you will have to head on over to the sim as quickly as possible to scoop them up before they are all gone.

Oh, Those Dog Days of Summer

Paper.Sparrow is hosting an event in their store with 14 prizes up for grabs ranging from bathing suits, to sexy heels to summer shorts and tops, as well as a belted strapless dress.  All of them cost 25 Linden dollars, and as I said earlier, the hunt ends tomorrow.  For today’s post, I’m wearing two of these pieces of summery goodness.  I just love the soft bluish teal color scheme of the separates.  The cropped halter style shirt features lush tropical leaves in a pale hue accented with pink flowers.  Slender shoulder straps ensure that the Floral Blue Amber Top stays securely in place as you travel across the grid.  My Zarah Skirt coordinates perfectly with the top and has the cutest ruffled trim on the waist and hemlines.  Two dangling garter straps add intrigue.  The texture is really well done with realistic folds in the fabric and a subtle shimmer.  I really like the asymmetrical hemline.  To add both of these items to your wardrobe, head on over to the shop and look for teal colored palm trees scattered around.  They are not that difficult to find, and I was able to discover all 14 of them in one short visit.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Incognito Pink

Incognito Pink

I know the other Ladies of the Fab been showing y’all a bunch of the birthday gifts from Uber and, of course, I had to jump in too! The lag on the Sim is getting better, but I still recommend one of the cam shopping spots. Be sure to take a look at the exclusive items being offered at many of the venders while you’re scooping up your gifts. There are some seriously sweet clothes and accessories and home decor for sale. Much to the despair of my wallet. 😉

Pretty in Pink

Let’s start at the top with the gifts I’ve got today. This is the “Hazel” cap and hair from Mina available at Uber. The cute hair comes with a styling HUD for bangs, no bangs, some bangs, etc. The only color is this soft “pastel red” (isn’t that…pink?)  But I love the color!

Next is my lovely, free spirit necklace from LaPoint andBastchild. The “BoHo Necklace” comes with it’s own HUD to change the color of the beads, the drops and the metals! I see this pretty necklace getting a lot of use from me. There is also a gift set of earrings to match.

Last but certainly not least, is my lacey little top. This is the “Flick” top from a new to me designer: Neve. Thank you, Uber for introducing us! This build is really nice and the texture is super well done. You get a HUD for sixteen choices of colors and patterns. Plus, a choice to make the lace at the bottom into a solid ruffle. I’m absolutely going to check out their main store if this is what we can expect in quality!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

You have until August 22nd to enjoy the party over at Uber!
