Pretty in Pastels

Pastel
Hello Fab Free’rs, It’s been such a busy week for me, I’m just not sure why! lol Needless to say I’m always excited when I get to share my Fabulous finds with you. Even after all the time I’ve spent in Second Life, and all the experiences I’ve had, bargain hunting remains one of my favorite pastimes. The best bargains however, are the ones that come to you, no hunting required.

The Best Things in Second Life are Free

Just recently Graffitiwear sent out this beautiful jewelry set to their subscriber members. Each item in this FREE gift is beautifully detailed. The lovely pink floral image is perfect for spring, not to mention the upcoming Easter holiday. The full set is included in this gift from Graffitiwear. To get your copy, head over to Graffitiwear and join the subscriber. The gift will be delivered to you automatically. Already joined but missed the gift? Just click the subscriber and it will redeliver the gift.

To compliment my new pretty baubles I picked up the latest Fab Free exclusive group gifts at Hello Dave, all 3 of them. Nope, that’s not a typo, Hello Dave has 3 nail applier sets out for FREE to all Fab Free group members. The nail color Pru is wearing is part of the matte Sweet Like Sugar set. There’s a matching glossy version, and a special Speckled Eggs set. Each of the 3 sets has pretty pastel colors. The appliers will work with Slink, Omega, and Maitreya nails. To get yours, wear your Fab Free group tag, and click the gift vendors at Hello Dave. Don’t forget, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.

The Skin Pru’s In 

This lovely face is courtesy of WoW Skins, via their April group gift. I always like the combination of a soft smokey eye with a pale lip. The April group gift at WoW includes two classic system skins (one with a little extra cleavage), and an Omega applier that works for Omega compatible bodies and heads. To get this FREE group gift, you’ll need to join the WoW Skins group which carries a one time join fee of 450 linden. Once you’re wearing your group tag, you can click the gift vendor to get your FREE gift. There is also a male group gift available, and there are several group only Lucky Letter boards. Additionally, you can pick up a box full of all previous group gifts next to each of the group gift vendors.

A Little Bird Said…

Gorgeous on a Gray Day

Photo 23

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I discovered another Fabulous Find at The Cart Wash sale to share with you.  I scooped up my strappy Beautiful Gray Day dress for only 10L at the Emerald Couture stand.  This knee-length frock offers a figure hugging fit that ends with a ruffled hem.  It features a light gray background topped with a delicate floral pattern.  With a variety of sizes and mesh body options, this budget-friendly dress is sure to fit your avatar.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Mesh Body Compatibility:  Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Slink Hourglass
  • Gray Day Shoes (not shown in picture)

Half Off?  Count Me In!

Although this amazing sale doesn’t quite drop the price to the 75L mark, I did want to pass along the news of the 50 percent off sale over at Exile.  All in-world styles, except Gatchas, are marked half off until April 7th.  As soon as I read the note card announcing the special offer, I clicked the teleport button, only to see the dreaded “Region is full” message.  I persisted, and finally after multiple attempts, arrived.  I picked up several new hairdo’s, including the Class Act style featured above.  For only 125L, you can purchase regular color packs, fusion packs for 140L, and the All or Nothing pack for 625L.  It was well worth the effort required to enter the sim!

Those Extra Little Touches

At the Rispetto Designs cart at The Wash, I picked up these glossy, dark gray Amour Signature Shawnda earrings for only 10 little Linden dollars.  They coordinated perfectly with the hue of the roses scattered across my dress.  The triple hoop design provided just the right amount of bling to complement my outfit.

Treat Yourself…

… to a little retail therapy.  This round of The Cart Wash is absolutely packed with bargains galore, and I hope you get a chance to teleport over to the Wash and check out all the booths for yourself.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

There’s Going To Be a Heat Wave

A Hundred Reasons

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  I’m popping in with a quick post about a fabulous deal waiting for you at The Wash Springtacious Cart Sale, which runs until April 12th.  After seeing Carson’s post {HERE} and Love’s post {HERE}, Ripley and I decided to mosey on over to The Wash to see if we could uncover some budget-friendly fashion finds to share with our wonderful readers.  Sure enough, at the first stall we checked out, we found a darling mini dress.

It’s Rather Hot Around Here…

For only 10L, you can scoop up this fuchsia, floral frock from One Hundred’s cart.  With subtle slits that offer a tantalizing glimpse of thigh, and spaghetti straps that leave my skin free to soak up some rays of sun, the Heatwave dress is a sexy little number that is sure to become a summer favorite of mine.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Belleza Venus, Isis and Freya, Maitreya, and Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Heatwave bow (silly me, I didn’t notice the bow until after I snapped the picture)

There are so many budget-friendly fabulous finds at the Cart Wash just waiting to be discovered.  Ripley and I are going to continue our stroll around the sim, and search for more treasures to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Let the Rain Kiss You

spring showers

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I got caught out in a spring shower while exploring the One Caress sim, but fortunately, it was a warm, gentle sprinkle.  While the pupster splashed merrily in the watery world, I tilted my chin upward, and enjoyed the kiss of rain drops.

A Sweetheart of a Deal

My strapless fuschia mini dress is a free gift at Xtravagance.  I love the piping along the bodice, the way it hugs my curves, and the heart-dotted leather with a subtle sheen.  A variety of textures on the frock provide just the right amount of visual interest.  Since the package includes appliers for numerous mesh bodies, plus mesh for classic avatars, you’re sure to find just the right fit!  Best of all, the Carmele dress is completely free, with no group required.  Simply teleport to Xtravagance, click the sign, and pay a whopping zero lindens to add this saucy number to your inventory.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Isis, Venus Ebody, Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Seeking Sunshine After the Rain

Not long after I snapped this picture, my playful pup bounded toward me, plowed a wave of water up over my toes, shook himself thoroughly, and drenched me with a cascade of droplets.   Time to seek out a thirsty towel and some rays before I catch a cold.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Chillin’ With the E.B.

Some Bunny Loves You

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  I hope your week has gotten off to a good start.  Now that my computer is up and running again (crossed fingers and toes), I can tell  my favorite readers about two free gifts that are available, just in time for the arrival of spring weather.  Ok, well, spring weather hasn’t hit everywhere yet, but a girl can dream of carefree, spring weather, right?

Hanging Out With the E.B. In My New Tee

Enjoying his last few weeks of freedom before the big holiday, Mr. E.B. and I enjoyed a quiet moment at the NorderNey sim while Ripley tried to convince some lambs to play “herd the sheep.”  My fitted, light teal colored t-shirt today is a free gift for members of the Justice store group.  With a curve-hugging shape, realistic texture, and adorable ties at the waist, the Brandy shirt will have you yearning to frolic in warm spring breezes.  With a texture-change HUD packed with 15 choices, this casual scoop necked top is a versatile addition to any wardrobe.  The Justice group has a 10L join fee, but with the quality of this pretty pullover, you won’t be disappointed.

What’s Included:

  • Applier for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP, and Venus
  • Color change HUD

My Lips Are Sealed

Sparkling Earrings

I decided to jazz up my outfit with a fanciful pair of dangling earrings that brought to mind the Eagles’ song Peaceful Easy Feeling.  I love the ornate twists and turns in the silver metal, which are accented with aquamarine crystals.  If gold is more your style, you are in luck because the package includes both metal types.  Best of all, these Gothica Earrings are currently on sale at the promo price of only 70L at Baubles! by Phe.  I’m not sure how long the promotion will last, so if you want to scoop up these jewels for yourself, I’d suggest heading on over to Baubles soon.

Fancy Free

One of the best parts of balmy weather is being able to slide on a pair of comfy flip flops, and feel the breezes caress my toes.  After being caged up all winter in boots, my feet relish the freedom offered by sandals.  With a moment’s notice I can slip off my footwear, and dangle my tootsies in the surf, or feel the warmth of sun-drenched sand on the soles of my feet.  Just in time for my peaceful, easy day, I discovered these free Sandy FlipFlops from Drops.  All I had to do was join the Drops group for free, click the display in the store, and this pair of summer-friendly footwear completed my look.

The Real Teal

Tickle Me Teal
Hello There Fab Free! I hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend. Mine has been busy, but in a positive way. I also had a lot of fun putting this unique look together. It’s always fun to style something outside the usual, and as I am sure I’ve said a thousand times and don’t mind saying again, I love mixing elements of fantasy style with modern fashion. That said, one of the shops in Second Life that you can truly count on for unique beautiful skins is Stix.

Tickled Teal 

Stix has put out a huge group gift skin pack out as their March/April group gift. The gift includes the above pictured version of their Vera skin in 4 fantasy skin-tones. Each tone has appliers for mesh bodies, ears, heads all sorts of things included , which is one more reason this FREE group gift is so fabulous. There’s also a classic system version of each skin in the package. The Stix group is FREE to join, just wear your tag and click the gift vendor to claim your gift.

Perfectly Polished

Another shop known for stellar fantasy style is Plastik. Just this weekend Plastik placed out a gorgeous nail applier set for just 5 linden. I believe this is a group only purchase, but I may be wrong. Either way, the Plastik group is FREE to join, so the cost of the applier set remains the same. The set includes 10 polish options, each in this bright beautiful shade of blue, some are glittery, some are metallic. You really have to see them to appreciate how pretty the polish is. Included in this 5 linden purchase are appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega compatible nails.

Teal Me No Lies
Teal Me No Lies

Finally, for this post anyhow, I also picked up the latest FREE group gift at Enertia. This cozy sweater dress is actually quite sexy on. It’s a halter style dress with low sides and an even lower back. If you’re at all modest, this may not be the dress for you as it shows a little side-boob and a generous amount of bum cleavage. I think it’s quite fun and playful. This is Second Life after all, so why not be a little more daring now and then. The dress comes in several body specific mesh sizes, including all 3 Belleza bodies, both Slink bodies, Maitreya, and another called Werewolf that I’m honestly not familiar with. Also there is a color change hud that allows you to pick from 12 different colors. Still not convinced you want to wear something so revealing? I think the dress would be just as cute with applier jeans and an applier crop top underneath. The Enertia group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

With a Little Help From My Friends

Wild and Free

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I met some new friends today at The Mill and paused to capture a snapshot with them.  Mr. Ears was shy and didn’t want to look at the camera, but his pal Blackie happily obliged.  Isn’t Chippers just the cutest little chipmunk ever?  He is part of the pose pack “Snuggly” from Nani that I discovered on the Marketplace for only 50L.

My outfit today is a free group gift from Machka Design, and includes the darling floral shorts and knit cropped top shown in the picture, plus cowboy boots and a shirt that ties around your waist, which I opted not to wear today.  The color of the top reminded me of pale morning sunshine.  I like its high collar and sleeveless design.  Echoing the flowers scattered in the field at The Mill, the pretty botanical pattern on the shorts was perfect for a casual day spent exploring nature.  The Machka Design group is completely free to join.  To add the Santa Rosa outfit to your inventory, just switch over to the group tag, teleport to the shop, walk inside, and tap the box on the floor just inside the doorway.

What’s Included in the Gift Package:

  • Mesh shorts in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh shorts in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for shorts
  • Knit tank top in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for tank top
  • Cowboy boots
  • Alpha layer for cowboy boots
  • Shirt tied around waist in XS, S, M, L, XL

You Give Me Butterflies

You Give Me Butterflies 1
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are in the midst of a relaxing weekend as Ripley and I are!  After reading Love’s post {HERE} about the new update for Slink hands, I teleported right over to Slink, tapped the re-delivery terminal, and scooped up the latest release.  Thank you for the tip, Love!  I then picked up a few Bento-friendly poses on the Marketplace, and decided to incorporate the 60L “Touch” pose from Kiss Me Poses in my main photo for today’s post.  I added the butterflies, which were an old gotcha prize from Cubic Cherry, and the effect was very picturesque.

Say Yes to the Mini Dress

My dress today is a free group gift from Pacagaia Creations called the Ginna Harness dress.  Although the join fee is 100L, a versatile texture change HUD is included with the March gift, and there are 7 other freebies on the wall of the store for group members.  I love the strappy detailing on this sexy Ginna dress, and the subtle sheen of its texture.  With realistic folds and creases, this curve-hugging number draws the eye to all the right places.  Although the windlight setting and reflections I used for my snapshot make it look like there is purple in the dress, it truly is a lovely shade of green (you can get a glimpse of the true color in the photo below), in honor of St.  Patrick’s Day.  If you don’t want to sport a foresty hue, there are a number of other options in the color change HUD included in the gift box.  You can set the straps and body of the dress the same color as I have done, or you can use a contrasting texture for the straps to make the design really pop.   For the body of the dress, there are of 8 solid colors or two patterns in the HUD, while the straps have 10 texture options.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP and Venus
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Texture HUD for customizing the straps and body of dress separately

Perfectly Polished From Head…
You Give Me Butterflies 3

I found a sweet pair of shamrock earrings in the Stylovely shop on the Marketplace for only 5L.  Even though St. Patrick’s Day has passed, I will still periodically wear these little lovelies in the hope that they might bring me some of the luck of the Irish.  I really like their detailed texture, and the way they dangle gently from my earlobes.

To Toe…
You Give Me Butterflies 2

With delicate straps and sparkling gemstones, these free Sandra heels from ChicChica added plenty of glam to my outfit.  Designed for Slink mid feet, they are ornate enough to be paired with an elegant gown, yet coordinate beautifully with the more casual frock I chose to don today.  They are a special free gift to celebrate St. Patricks’ Day, and I’m not sure how much longer they will be set out, so if you want to claim a pair for your own, don’t delay.  I’d suggest heading on over to ChicChica as soon as possible.

That’s a Wrap

I hope you enjoyed my green-themed outfit for today.  Ripley and I will be on the look out for another Fabulous Find to share with you soon.  Until my next post…..happy shopping!
