I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

I Can Smell Autumn Dancing on the Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are as ready as I am for some fall colors.  Today, Ripley and I are bringing you a little slice of fall foliage as we share a couple of budget friendly Fabulous Finds.  I hope you like them!  Before I get into the details, if you are looking for a beautifully decorated autumn landscape, I’d highly recommend a visit to the Cherishville sim.  The puster and I really enjoyed the oranges, browns and other fall colors when we were there. They provided a wonderful contrast for the dark hues of my outfit.

A Great Hat Speaks for Itself

First up, my cheeky cap is a gift from the Inventory Trends store.  With a darling bow and just enough of a brim to shield your eyes from the sun, the Velma hat adds a functional and cute finishing touch to my ensemble.  Best of all, I picked it up for free, just by being a member of the Third Life Group.  The group has no join fee, so I didn’t have to pay a single Linden dollar for my newest fashion accessory.  Although the hat cannot be resized, I was able to move it around on my head and I resized my hair underneath to get the fit I was looking for.  The thoughtful designer tucked a HUD inside with three texture options so you can coordinate with different color schemes.  In addition to the black I am sporting, you could also choose red or a dark brown.  While you’re in the shop, you might want to try picking up one of the fourteen other gifts set out on the wall for members of various groups.  I’ve included a close up photo below so you can get a better look at Velma.

Velma

There’s Something Sexy…

about a girl with an attitude and a pair of leather pants.  The mesh black leather pants from the Bang Bang shop on the Marketplace pick up where Velma left off in the attitude department.  With a soft sheen, zippered pockets and a skin tight fit, you will feel super skinny, sexy and toasty warm when you wear this wardrobe essential.  No chilly autumn breeze will work its way through these pants!  Best of all, with a price tag of a mere 10 Linden dollars, you’ll hardly notice the difference in your bank account balance after your purchase. The folder includes versions for mesh as well as classic avatars, so there is something for everyone tucked inside.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatiblity:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sometimes You Just Get Lucky

Sometimes in the Middle of Nowhere, You Find Yourself

Hello Fabulous Readers!  This afternoon, Ripley and I spent some time wandering through the fields over on the Yorkshire sim.  I just love the color of the sky, the  landscaping, and the general atmosphere there.  If you haven’t been, it’s a lovely place to visit!  My outfit today fit right in with the meadow due to the sprinkling of flowers across my skirt.  I picked it up over at Inventory Trends for just 30 Linden dollars.

A Fortunate Find

When Rip and I arrived at the Inventory Trends shop, I spotted the in store gacha machines over on the right as soon as I entered.  Always on the lookout for a bargain, I wandered over to take a look, and knew I just had to have the Diana outfit.  The machine is stocked with 3 different skirts and tops as separates, and two rare combinations with the skirt and top together in one package.  In my very first try, I was rewarded with a cute duo with a white crop top and white floral skirt.  I could have just as easily blogged that combo, but I really wanted to pick up the black version, so I decided to give it just one more shot (my famous last words with gacha machines…..just one more try….), and to my surprise, an inventory offer popped up on my screen with the words “Rare 1” and I did a little happy dance right then and there!  I quickly teleported home, then donned the strappy black crop top and cheery maxi.  The black shirt hugs your curves in a flattering way, and the long, generously cut skirt features bright blossoms in magenta and lime green.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to the shop and give the machine a try.  If you don’t like the black version I am wearing, there are also a solid red, a solid back and a white skirt with a rose print to try for,  as well as red, pink or yellow crop tops.   For just 30L, it’s a fairly budget-friendly opportunity.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Here’s hoping you have a wonderful week ahead of you filled with plenty of good luck!  Until my next post, happy shopping!
