Bringing Home The Tree

Bringing Home the Tree
Hello there, Fab Free!  Today, as I took Ripley for his morning stroll, we passed by a house with a Christmas tree all decked out in the front window.  Ripley paused and gazed at it with a wistful, hopeful expression in his eyes.  “OK pal, we’ll go pick out our tree tonight,” I told him as I scratched behind his ears.  All the way home, he pranced, his tail wagging joyously.  I guess even pups get excited during the holiday season!

Crimson Concoction

The other day, as Rip and I sought out our next Fabulous Find to share, we decided to pop on over to Hottest Fashion.  In our very first post on Fab Free [HERE], we highlighted a cute, summery knotted top from the store, and I figured we should take a peek and see if the gift had been updated to a cooler-weather outfit.  Pleasantly surprised, I tapped the prize board for the Mesh Body Friends Group (free to join), and scooped up this free long-sleeved Winter Dress.  As an added bonus……..it was in my favorite color….another score for Team Ripley!  This frock features a full-cut skirt accompanied by a loosely fitted bodice, and can be worn with or without the included black woolen scarf.  Since Rip and I planned to delve into the woods to track down our Christmas tree, I draped it around my neck to ward off the winter chill.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Belleza, Slink, Maitreya
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for fit mesh
  • Fit mesh scarf

Life is Better in Boots

You can’t ferret out a tree in the forest wearing heels (now THAT would make an interesting post, don’t you think?), so I slipped into some winter-friendly footwear.  I discovered my high, zipped leather boots while searching the Marketplace for good deals.  Currently, Vlad Blackburn is offering these Color Zip Over Knee Boots for only 49L in his Marketplace store.  Featuring high heels, and creamy leather with soft folds, this footwear package includes a color HUD packed with a rainbow of options.  You can alter the hue of the body, soles, and zipper separately.  They are constructed of fitted, rigged mesh, so no special feet are required.  To confirm they will work with your avatar, you can always test the fit with the free demo offered here.  With my tootsies and legs snuggled up in warmth, Rip and I started up Old Bessie (our truck) and began the Great Tree Hunt.

Over at the Beautiful 4 Seasons sim, we accomplished our mission, and met some new friends along the way.  Aren’t these lovey-dovey owls just the sweetest looking couple?  My heart just melted when I saw them perched on Ole Bess.  I posed next to the pair, and snapped a quick picture before journeying home with Ripley to set up our tree.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

She’s a Happy Camper

A Happy Camper

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  In the midst of holiday shopping, Rip and I decided to take a break over at Etchaflesh.  A few days ago, in my post [HERE], the pupster and I featured a stylish vest we picked up at the store, and we decided to return today to camp awhile.  We were very well rewarded!

Pick Your Poison

While Ripley happily gnawed on a bone, I relaxed for just 35 minutes in one of the plush chairs arranged along the back wall of the store.  Right when the time elapsed, this cozy Poison sweater joined my inventory.  In addition to the knitted pullover, the free prize package included a HUD with 15 color choices for changing up the texture of the arms.  Featuring a scooped neck line, long sleeves, and a realistic ribbed texture, this sweater is destined to become a winter wardrobe staple for me.  I appreciated its generous length, which ensured my tummy stayed toasty warm.

What’s Included:

  • fitted mesh
  • standard sized mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • alpha layers for both mesh styles
  • Texture HUD for the sleeves

Poison

Avoiding a Cuff Malfunction

I wanted to don a pair of boots to wear while romping with Ripley through the snowy climate of It All Starts With a Smile.  The only problem was the bottom edge of my pants poked right through the sides of my boots …. one of those dreaded SL wardrobe mishaps that never occurs in real life.  After a quick perusing of the Marketplace, I netted this Purrrvy Skinny Jeans applier from the IGNOTO store for only 25L.  Although I applied the jeans on my Maitreya Lara mesh body, they are also designed for Belleza, Slink, and Omega.  With a flattering fit, detailed stitching, and a dark denim wash, these jeans are perfect for casual wear, or they can be easily dressed up with the right layers and shoes.  Best of all, they behave themselves, and don’t project through my boots.  Yay!

As you can see in my photo, Ripley and I have a few packages to deliver before nightfall, so we’d better get pedaling.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Fae Maiden on a Winter’s Eve

Winter Fae 4

Happy late-Monday, Fabulouses!  I couldn’t head off to bed without sharing our latest Fabulous Find with you.  Yesterday, Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness, and hit the trail on the Fantasy Cream V Hunt.  For only 1L each, you can seek out prizes with a Medieval/Fantasy flair. The event started on November 18th and runs through December 18th, so there is plenty of time to don your Sherlock Holmes cap, and round up some goodies for yourself.  With 34 stops on this hunt, there are plenty of gifts to be discovered.

Winter Fae Maiden

At Beyond Persuasion Designs, Ripley and I scouted out this gorgeous formal number for just one little linden dollar. The bodice of the Winter Eve’s Guardian Fae Anise gown features poinsettia flowers embroidered in gold thread, and the skirt has glimmering white panels alternating with foresty green.  Long, fur trimmed sleeves, which are optional, keep your arms from experiencing chilly breezes.  Although I usually don’t partake in role play in Second Life, I could see this gown coming in very handy for a Medieval/Fantasy sim or for holiday parties.  It is also lovely just for roaming around and looking beautiful!

What’s Included:

  • Standard mesh in XXS, XS, M, L, XL for classic avatars
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Rose and holly hair adornment
  • Optional sleeves with separate alpha

Winter Fae 3

I’ve included this close up picture to showcase the holly and rose hair piece that is enclosed with the hunt prize.  I thought it added a festive touch to the outfit, just perfect for the upcoming holiday season.  In this shot, you can also get a good look at my nail polish, which is another 1L find.  Leap of Faith is offering this Slink manicure/pedicure set as a 1L Christmas gift in their Marketplace store.  I brushed on the gradient red to green glitter, but the package also includes 5 other polish options.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog post.  Ripley and I are off to seek out new Fabulous Finds to share with you.  Until next time, wonderful readers, happy shopping hunting!

I Only Wanna Be With You

I Just Wanna Be With You
Hello there, Fabulouses!  Are you ready for winter like I am?  As the days of November ticked by, I found myself itching to frolic in a winter wonderland.  Although in real life, I never mastered an axel, a spiral, or I’ll be honest, even just a simple crossover, in SL, I glide along with all the moves of a figure skating champion.  Today’s outfit, with its flared skirt and icy, gray tones inspired Ripley and I to travel to this frozen pond on the Twilight Moon sim, but I’m getting a bit ahead of myself.

Mania at Midnight

Time and time again, I keep returning to the Entice store to check out their latest releases.  Currently, the no-group-required free Midnight Mania board is offering the “Be With You” dress.  This frock features short sleeves with a slightly scalloped edge, and a wide leather belt, in addition to the mid-thigh length skirt.  It comes complete with a color-change HUD, which allows you to modify the textures of the top, skirt, and belt individually.  This offers a myriad of possible combinations!  I opted for a black top, white belt, and a dark, printed skirt to contrast vividly against the white snow and ice.  For finishing touches, I added a glistening Snow Flurry Pearl necklace from EarthStones, and laced on a pair of ice skates from V-Style that I picked up for only 30L on the Marketplace.

What’s Included With the Dress:  

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L for classic avatars
  • Alpha Layer
  • Texture change HUD – grays

Jack Frost Nipping at Your Nose (and Ears!)

Of course, with the chill in the air, I needed something to keep my ears toasty.  While I rummaged around in my inventory, searching for the perfect winter hat, Ripley nudged my elbow insistently, and pointed his nose at the box from Mina perched on my shelf.  Love previously blogged the free Nell hair in her post [HERE], and I had immediately traveled to Hairology to scoop up Love’s featured hairstyle.  However, like Astrid in her post [HERE], I hadn’t yet finished opening my gifts from the event, and had completely forgotten this lovely style.  It’s a good thing my pupster remembered, because the long, flowing hair and white, knitted cap were perfect for a day of gliding across the ice!

Cold Hands and a Warm Heart

With my outfit complete, Ripley and I thoroughly enjoyed a lovely, wintry afternoon, filled with drifting snowflakes, frosty air, and the sound of blades cutting across fresh ice.  Now, if only I had trained Rip to fetch a steaming mug of cocoa, my day would be complete, and I would be able to feel my hands again…. Note to self:  When you go skating, bring mittens!

Until my next post, wonderful readers, happy shopping!

Paisley Perfection

Pretty in Paisley
Well, hello again Wonderful Readers!  Last Sunday, Ripley and I shared the Militar dress from Scandalize Creations with you in our blog post here.  While scooping up that darling camo mini, I couldn’t help but notice the other group gifts on the wall, so today we traveled back to Scandalize to pick up another Fabulous Find.

Pretty Paisley Print

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always had a thing for paisley.  There’s something almost hypnotic about the intricate, swirling patterns.  This free Revlu skirt combines my most beloved fabric motif with my top color choice, red – two wins in my book!  With its vibrant print, black waistband, and leg-flattering length, this cheery skirt is sure to remain a favorite in my wardrobe far into the future.  To add Revlu to your SL inventory, simply head on over to Scandalize, join the group for free, and tap the picture on the group gifts wall.

Knotted Top

Playing off the hue of Revlu’s waistband, the black, loosely knotted, leather crop top from Beck complements the skirt without overpowering it.  I like the sheen of the texture and the way the ends of the ties cascade down my midsection in soft waves.  Slender straps leave my shoulders bare to soak up some warm SL rays.  Although I enjoy brisk fall days, this summer-loving-girl still longs to frolic in the sun, and today’s outfit is perfect for just that.  Oh, how I wish I could control the climate in RL as I can in SL!  A short, simple Elements necklace from Wazzer Works, at The Chapter Four, perfectly accessorized my outfit.

Sensuously Strappy Shoes

While out on a relaxing bike ride with my canine pal happily trotting alongside, we passed by the Ricielli store and spotted a sign announcing the Halloween Hunt currently taking place. Each pumpkin in the hunt costs 15L, and these Kyra high heels are just one of 20 prizes to be found.  These slinky shoes come in three shades (blood, midnight, potion), and are the perfect footwear to glam up any outfit.

Listen to Your Heart, Not the Crowd

Time For a New ‘Do

On our way over to the Yasminia sim for a little exploration, Rip and I decided to take a quick detour over to the Hairology event after reading Pru’s beautifully written post here.  At Hairology, Ripley sniffed out this free, medium length, center-parted Bezoar hair from Mithral.  This is just one of many free hairstyles generous designers have set out for all to enjoy.  The package includes a color-change HUD jam-packed with 30 textures to choose from.  Sweet and sophisticated at the same time, Bezoar will flatter any avatar.

I hope you have spotted something in today’s post that inspired you to create a Fabulous Find of your own.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

Dressed Like a Day Dream

I've Got a Blank Space

Hello there, Wonderful Readers!  You may have noticed the virtual flurry of posts lately about all the new presents for members of the in-world Fab Free Group, such as Edi’s post here, Love’s post here, Pru’s post here, and Loki’s post here.  If you haven’t, please do check them out!  The generosity of SL designers never ceases to amaze me!  There are so many gifties just for Fabulously Free in SL Group members, and it’s completely free to join.

This morning, after I refilled my coffee cup, I returned to find Ripley with his front paws perched up on my chair staring intently at the screen.  His tail was wagging briskly, and I knew my hound with a nose for fashion was on the trail of a mid-week Fabulous Find to share with you.  I’m a huge fan of Kira Paderborn and Jolene Carami over at Entice (as you could probably tell from my posts here and here).  When Ripley nudged the announcement from Love about a new, free gift from Entice, I scurried over to the Flawless sim to scoop it up.

I’ve Got a Blank Space

Featuring a deep magenta texture with subtle shimmers of colored sequins, the free, sleeveless Blank Space dress is loosely fitted and chic.  A simple black belt, worn low on the waist line, accents the deep shade of the dress beautifully.  The package includes standard mesh, plus an alpha layer for classic avatars, but also fits my Maitreya mesh body.  To pick up Blank Space for yourself, simply navigate to the Entice store, cross the footbridge, and head to the group gift section in the back.  Swap over to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, and tap the board.  Ta da!

Sizes Included:  Standard mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
Leave You Breathless

Finishing Touches

An elegant garnet Princess Solitaire necklace and earring set from Cae (a 75L gacha prize) echoed the rich tone of my new dress.  I splurged and picked up the matching Blank Space heels from Entice for 150L on the Marketplace to complete my look.  Perfectly coordinated, and dressed like a day dream, I accompanied Ripley to the Paramour Sim (thanks for the tip, Loki!) to snap a few photographs and look for little kittens to rescue.

Until Sunday, happy shopping, my friends!

She’s a Cheeky One!

Cats Choose Us We Don't Choose Them
Mew……mew….mew…. the soft, plaintive cries floated on the breeze just as we arrived at the Pandora Resort.  My pal, Ripley, cocked his head, and then sped off to offer assistance to two poor, lost kittens.  The pupster can’t resist the call of creatures in need, and I can’t resist hunting down a good bargain.  Today, I have some free gifts to share with you that work beautifully together to create a cheeky, casual outfit, but first, back to our adventure…

Kittens 'n' boots

 Kittens ‘n’ Boots

When my boot-clad feet caught up with my canine friend, we discovered these adorable kittens calling for the rest of their family.  While I kept a close eye on our new feline acquaintances, Ripley dashed off to locate the missing relatives.  In this photo, you can get a close look at these fabulous and free Super Thigh Boots I discovered at Cheeky Amour.  A free gift for Third Life Group members, these softly polished high boots come with a texture-change HUD, which includes a range of 29 color variations, making them a versatile addition to your SL wardrobe.  High boots are “in” this fall, and for only a group join fee of 5L, you can keep up with the latest fashion trend for a very small investment.  In addition, there are many other free gifts around the grid for Third Life group members, so your lindens will reap a big return.

Camo Kat

A Military-Inspired Mini

Scandalize Creations is currently offering this camo-print Militar mini dress as a free gift for its group members.  The frock features a plunging, V-shaped neckline, and a softly-gathered sash at its center, designed to accentuate your waistline.  An asymmetrical hemline adds a playful touch, while half-length sleeves keep your arms warm on cool fall days.  I love its fun and flirty style! Best of all, the Scandalize Creations group is completely free to join.  To coordinate with the mini’s military theme, I snapped on a Brass Bullet necklace that I found from Jade Dragon Designs on The Marketplace.  It’s actually meant for guys, but it resized easily to fit my avatar, and I’m quite pleased with the overall look.

Reunited

It didn’t take Ripley long to round up the rest of the feline family.  As you can see in my main snapshot, all ended happily for the two little, lost kittens.  After accepting grateful thank yous from a once-anxious set of kitty parents, Ripley and I were free to explore SL’s wonderful sights, and seek out new Fabulous Finds for our wonderful readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Hey, Beautiful One, Keep Cozy and Comfortable

Aqua 3

Hello Fabulous Readers! Ripley and I are taking a break from chasing zombies at Woodbury Falls to bring you a special edition blog post featuring one of the newest Fabulously Free in SL group gifts.  I think you’ll really like this one!

It’s All About Sweater Weather

With brisk fall days upon us, I’m finding the need for warmer clothes to ward off the chill.  This free Bea Off Shoulder Sweater from The Beautiful Ones will keep me warm in style.  The aqua knit garment wraps my avi in comfort, and offers a sexy peek at one shoulder.  In addition to Maitreya and Slink versions for mesh bodies, the gift also includes classic avatar sizes in XS, S, M, L and XL in fit mesh.  I like the detailing on the knit cuffs and waistline… no chilly breezes will sneak past them, so I’m sure to stay cozy and comfortable.  To add this cute sweater to your wardrobe, all you have to do is join the Fabulously Free in SL group (it’s completely free!) then teleport over to The Beautiful Ones, and tap the board… easy peasy!  If you haven’t checked out all the wonderful gifts available to Fabulously Free in SL group members, you can see them here.

Aqua 1

Trendy, Chic Choker

Since Rip and I had an exciting afternoon of zombie chasing planned, I decided to keep my look casual.  This simple, tattoo-style choker from Fakess on The Marketplace proved to be the perfect accessory, and it was only 1L.  With multiple layers included in the package, such as a tattoo and undershirt layers for classic avatars, and mesh body appliers for Omega, Slink Physique and TMP, this accessory is sure to be useful to all.

Relay…….What?!?

Although I am using the Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to utilize the Omega applier for the choker by using the HUD from Omega Solution’s System Relay Kit for Maitreya.  At 99L, it is priced a bit over our 75L limit for Fab Free, but I find this HUD to be an extremely useful tool to have tucked away in my inventory.  It allows me to wear items that only come with Omega appliers on my Maitreya mesh body, and it opens up so many options for expanding my SL wardrobe.  If you have a Maitreya body, it’s worth checking out.

Aqua 2

Ready to Run!

I slipped on these snug-fit, figure-sculpting Katelyn pants from Mette’s, and Lewis Studded Flat Sneakers from the Mesh Agency, then teleported (somewhat nervously) to the Woodbury Falls Sim.  Ripley has confidently assured me that he will keep me safe from harm.  I do have to say, though, that these zombies are pretty creepy, and emanate frightening sounds, so I’ve been keeping my guard up… This spooky sim is not for the faint of heart.  Yikes!  I think I hear the shuffling footsteps and moaning of one of those creatures fast approaching now, so I’d better end this post.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Where the Sky Touches the Sea

Where the Sky Touches the Sea
Ahoy there, Fab Free!  My trusty sea dog, Ripley, spotted a Fabulous Find today through his spyglass, and sounded the alarm as he paced the deck of our ship.  I followed his pointing nose, and caught sight of what looked to be the arms of a tentacled Kraken reaching above the waves, but it was actually the whimsical Octa dress from .Ecko.  While I admired the dress from a distance, Ripley took control of the rudder, and piloted us safely to shore so I could net a Saturday Special Edition outfit to share with our wonderful readers.

The Dress

This strapless frock is the most recent free gift from .Ecko. for Fabulously Free in SL group members, and features white octopus arms playfully waving across a jet-black background.  The gift comes in five standard mesh sizes for classic avatars, but hugged every curve of my Maitreya Lara body after adjusting the alpha layer.  It left my shoulders bare to enjoy the caress of gentle ocean breezes as my pup and I continued our sea adventure to scope out the rest of my outfit.

Sizes Included

Mesh for Classic avatars:  XXS, XS, S, M, L

Sideswept

Side-Swept Ponytail

As we got underway once more, a friendly seagull swooped down bearing welcome news of a brand-new gift from Truth Hawks for Truth VIP Group Members.  For a one-time fee of 265L, members will have access to an exclusive monthly hair style, which is scheduled to arrive the first week of each month, and will only be available for one month.  In addition, members will be granted early access to sales.  Deja, November’s free VIP hairstyle, is a loose, side-swept ponytail complete with the optional wispy bangs I am wearing here, as well as a cuff and side hair which I opted not to add in my picture.  This generous gift contains a full fat-pack of all color HUD variations Truth offers!  In real life, I often sport a ponytail, and I wish it was as glamorous and elegant looking as this one.

Accessories….The Exclamation Point of an Outfit

In my blog post here, I featured Victoria Gladiator boots from Ben’s Boutique.  I discovered today if you join the in-world Ben’s Beauty group, you can receive this free Harmony necklace.  It comes complete with a HUD that allows you to choose from 20 different scarf-stone colors and 4 metal textures.  I love how this piece of jewelry combines the look of a necklace with the added pop of a scarf, all wrapped up in one versatile piece.  I opted to stay with black and silver to coordinate with my dress.  Best of all, the Ben’s Beauty group is free to join!  Angular bangles from Izzies, and hoop earrings from Phoebe Piercings and More added the final touches of bling.

After slipping on RADEX Mesh Hayal High boots, which I found on the Marketplace for 89L, this pirate seafarer was ready for more adventures on the deep blue ocean with her ever-faithful, bargain-sniffing hound by her side.  Until next time, happy shopping!
