Falling Down

Falling Down_001

The leaves have turned their colors in my neighborhood and are rapidly falling down from the trees. The Marketplace Leaves hunt gift that I discovered reminded me of that… and the butterfly on the front seems to give it a last of late summer touch that makes it softly melancholy but also very pretty.

The gift… just 10L

The Marketplace Leaves Hunt is a hunt on the marketplace. You can click here for more information. The gift from Miss Jewell is the Lyle outfit. It includes a mesh top in standard sizes, jewelry, system layer pants, a prim skirt, and system layer stockings. I opted to only wear the mesh top as I have a mesh body and for just 10L, the beautiful mesh top was the item I fell in love with. I added accessories that were already in my inventory and came up with an outfit that I really liked. I bet you can do the same!

Happy falling leaves to you as autumn progresses!

In the Wide Open Meadow

Walk in the Meadow

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a time-sensitive offer with you.  My complete Alegro outfit, which includes my sweater, tube top and pants is available at cae.b for only 55L for a limited time as part of this week’s Fifty5 Thursday Sale.  Although it may look like I am wearing a beautiful paisley skirt from this angle, I actually am sporting a fun pair of flared pants with asymmetrical hemlines.  The top half of this outfit is composed of two separate pieces – a strappy tank top and a long sleeve cropped sweater that can be worn together as I have done, or as separates.  Making this outfit even more versatile is the texture change HUD, which allows you to select from 9 different paisley patterns for the pants and 6 choices for the tank and sweater combination.  It’s like getting a bunch of outfits all in one package.   With versions for classic avatars as well as popular mesh bodies, you are bound to find the right fit for you!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layers for top and pants)
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • Ocasin
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

The Fifty5 Thursday sale starts at 7 am on Thursdays and runs through Sunday.  Items featured in the sale cost between 55 and 100L.  If you like this outfit as much as I do, I’d recommend a quick trip over to cae.b to pick it up before Sunday passes by.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Just Waiting Around…

Endless Waiting

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Friday!  Ripley and I had quite an adventure last night that involved a check engine light, a tow truck, and an excruciating wait at a garage for a mechanic that moved as slow as molasses in January.  After hours of tapping our toes, we were finally able to get back on the road, but it made for a very long day, indeed.

Leather Jacket

While we remained on stand-by in the brisk November air, I was glad to have my cozy jacket from Mad Cat Crreations to ward off the chill.  With a double layered lapel, rolled back cuffs, and a snug-fitting waist buckle, I was cloaked in comfort.  A gleaming zipper helped to insulate me and seal out the breeze trying to work its way through to my bones.  One thing I really enjoy about this coat is the way it nipped in at the waistline and emphasized my curves.  The best part – this fall essential only cost 1L and a bit of searching time in The Jerky Turkey Hunt.  To pick up one for yourself, teleport over to Mad Cat Crreations and locate the orange feather concealed in the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

It’s Time for a Pity Party

Ripley and I had discovered another hunt prize, the Spiked Collar from Ama. that coordinated perfectly with my outfit.  An offering for the Pity Party at the Doll House Hunt, this neck wear comes with a HUD which allows you to change the color of the rhinestones set into the black leather band.  After searching around the store, the pupster located the hunt object, (a small pink dollhouse).  I paid 10L, then happily scooped up my new bauble.  You can see a close up of it in the image below (along with my face when I received the bill from the mechanic).  Although I enjoy being without a monthly car payment, maybe it’s time to search for a new vehicle…

And then You Get the Bill

Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

I’m not grumbling about this gown!

Devil with the Red Dress On_001

Oh, oh, oh, I’m going to have a ball tonight! And I’m dressed for ballroom style! Do you need a formal gown and only have a single linden to your name? I have just the stop for you!

Grumbling… not!

I’m not grumbling about this hunt gift from Grumble! It’s a beautiful formal ballgown in red that is also just simple enough to pass as a “Sunday Dress” for less formal occasions. You can pick it up at the Grumble main-store as part of the Jerky Turky Hunt for 1L. Your clue is: “I think i saw a feather in the cash register.” Look for the orange feather and when you find it, pay the 1L and the dress is yours!

Dress sizes available:

  • Classic Mesh XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

First Flurries of the Season

First Snow

Hello Fabulous Readers!  As the flakes of snow drifted slowly down from the gray sky, I encouraged Ripley to walk a little faster so we could make it home before the sun set completely.  It is getting dark so early now, and I wanted to be home near the crackling fire.  With his thick fur coat, he seemed blissfully unaware of the chill in the air.

All Wrapped Up

Lucky for me, I had a scarf draped around my neck to help keep me warm.  This lovely wrap is a free gift for members of the Hilly Haalan Fashions group.  It even includes a texture change HUD, which allows you to select from 10 hues.  Each option features the same paisley pattern, and you can color the fringe to coordinate or contrast with the main fabric of the scarf.  It is resizable, and comes with a regular and a “more breast” version.  To pick up this neckwear for yourself, simply teleport to the shop, switch to the Hilly Haalan Fashions group tag (free to join), and tap the vendor.

It’s All About the Comfort

My long sleeved shift dress from Store Aeyres on the Marketplace is loose-fitting and cozy.  This style of frock is great for most body types, and depending on how you accessorize, it can be suitable for casual, every day wear, or dressed up for an evening out.  Priced at only 50L, the package included the garment, as well as blue and green eyes for classic avatars, a crystal ring, earrings, a vintage pendant, shoes, a face light, and a color change HUD packed with a rainbow of selections.  For my picture, I chose just to wear the frock and keep my look fairly simple, so I didn’t try out any of the extras.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Jenny Don’t Be Hasty

JTHMooh
Hey there Fabulouses! Yesterday Kathryn showed you a super cute top that is just 1L for The Jerky Turkey Hunt [HERE], and I did a little orange feather (that’s the hunt icon… an orange feather!) hunting myself, and found that MOoH! is also participating in TJTH and has a really nice prize too.

What Will You Get For 1L?

Jenny is the prize you’ll have once you locate the orange feather at the MOoH! store.  It’s actually considered a dress, but it’s short enough that if you prefer it as a top with a cute pair of jeans like I do, you totally can!  It comes with a texture change HUD as well so you can change the blouse and frock to a few different colours to switch up your look according to your personal taste.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP
