I’m Sporting a Neon Rainbow

Spring is on the Way

Well, hello there, Fabulouses!  Since March came in like a lion in my neck of the woods, I’m sure err – I mean – hoping it will go out like a lamb with plenty of sunshine and warmer temperatures.  Hey, a girl can dream, right?  Well, even if it’s only “springish” in SL, I’m ready with a couple of budget-friendly fashion finds.  It must be a rainbow kinda day, because just like in Aline’s post {HERE}, I donned a rainbow of my own, but more about that later.

Start At the Top

My ruffled, multi-layer Calinda top features pale, vertical stripes near the neckline, and an organic, almost floral motif on the lower hems.  Made exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body, this cropped shirt will help me celebrate the arrival of warm days, and will be a fashion staple throughout the entire summer.  Tucked inside the package, you’ll find white and teal strapless versions, as well as the same shades sporting spaghetti straps for that extra assurance your shirt will stay in place.  I chose to pair mine with jeans, but in the dog days of summer, I’m sure it will look just as adorable with shorts.   It might be simply due to the shape of my avatar, but from a side angle, a bit more of my cleavage showed than I was comfortable with.  I solved that problem by wearing a long style of hair that covered that part of the girls up.  This little number is specially priced at just one linden dollar at LS Diamond’s marketplace shop.  I’m not sure how long this will last, so if you’d like to pick up a copy for yourself, I’d recommend visiting the store soon.

Then Add Some Brilliant Pops of Color

For a jaunty finishing touch, I slipped on the Neon bracelets that I picked up at Zendra for free, just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  This set is so whimsical and cheerful!  A resize script is included so you can adjust the jewelry to fit your avatar.  I had to do that for myself, and it was easy-peasy!  No editing skills required at all.  You can wear the bracelets on both arms as I chose to do, or just one.  I’m including a close up shot below so you can get a better look of this free gift.  It’s a fun throwback to my younger days when I would wear layer upon layer of jelly bangles.

Neon Rainbow

And You are All Set for Spring!

Ok, I am ready (well, more than ready) for spring to arrive.  I’m sure looking forward to shedding my jacket and taking walks in the balmy sunshine.  How about you all?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Fuchsia Dreams

Swinging My Cares Away
Hello Fabulouses!  When I saw that Love and Aline had picked up some wonderful outfits at the Cart Wash, Ripley and I just had to teleport there and mosey around.  I’m so glad we did!  I scooped up my top, jeans and boots over at the Brandy’s Boutique display for just 10L, and also indulged in a new manicure from the Defiant Unicorn cart for 10L.

Flirty Fucshia

With a romantic top, snug fitting blue jeans, and sexy, thigh-high boots, the Innocent Lace Fuchsia outfit is sure to please!  A cheery ribbon adds a bright pop of color, and grommets along the hemline and neckline provide visual interest.  I like the way the top portion of the fabric is solid, but the bottom is fashioned from translucent lace.  Medium blue denim pants and over-the-knee, curve-hugging boots keep your legs toasty warm.  If the bright pink of the bow is not your style, you can find gold or green bow versions at the Brandy’s Boutique display, all for only 10 little Linden dollars.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Polish It Up

For just the right finishing touch, I slicked on Val’s Polish from Defiant Unicorn.  The glossy red and pink shades in the applier HUD are just perfect for the upcoming holiday.  They were super easy to apply to my Maitreya mesh body, and provide an easy way to add glam to your look for just 10L.  You can get a better view of this pretty polish in my close up shot below:

Full of Thought

If you haven’t been to the Wash to check out the Cart Sale, I’d highly recommend a visit.  There are so many wonderful, budget-friendly Fabulous Finds just awaiting discovery!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Put on Your Red Dress, Baby!

Put on Your Red Dress, Baby

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I know mine was too short…lol.   We finally had some warmer weather here, and I was outside enjoying it in RL, so I was inspired to go for a stroll with Ripley in a field of wildflowers in Second Life.

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The arrival of more spring-like temperatures (even if short lived) also had me thinking of donning a sleeveless dress.  Lucky for me, Cremosas Store has this crimson little mini set out as a free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  With a low cut neckline and slender fit, this frock had me ready for a night on the town.  All I needed to do was apply some red lipstick, add a simple necklace, and slip into some slinky heels.  The simple design, smooth texture of the fabric, and deep hue showcased my curves.  With versions for mesh bodies as well as classic avatars, I’m sure you will find just the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Three Stripes

Keep Calm and Polish On

For just the perfect finishing touch, I picked up another free gift just for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The Three Stripe Nails from Inevitable Madness echoed the vivid hue of my frock.  I really liked how the designer created two accent nails with this black and red pattern and painted the rest jet black.  This touch added visual interest to my manicure.  The contrast of ebony and crimson makes such a vibrant combination.  The free gift package includes appliers for Maitreya as well as Omega.

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