Ready for Back to Work? Yeah, No

Yeah, No

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I went camping over the weekend, and I have to tell you, when it was time to come home and get ready for work again, my shirt spoke my thoughts clearly.  Was I ready to head back?  Yeah, no.  I can’t be the only one who feels like that after a long weekend, so if you’ve ever had the same sentiment, you might want to pick up this free group gift for yourself and let your shirt do the talking.

An Eyeluring Tank

I was able to scoop up this soft cotton tank for free just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  It features a dark gray strip on each of the side panels, the perfect sarcastic response to a silly question, and a cut that is sure to flatter your figure.  Since the bold text really stands out against the snowy white background, everyone will read your message loud and clear.  The folder contains versions for a variety of mesh body types.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport to the Eyelure store, activate your Fab Free group tag, and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

And That’s Not All

I also picked up my Glaice leggings as a free group gift…this time from Revelation.  These shorts are packed with plenty of detail such as rolled up cuffs joined with lacing, a shiny belt, frayed areas on the pockets and a curve-hugging fit.  I can see myself wearing these throughout the spring and summer months.  The gift includes a texture change HUD that allows you to select from six options for colors for the jeans ranging from blues and grays to brown.  To add these versatile leggings to your inventory, you need to be a member of the Revelation Store group, but there is no join fee, so they are completely free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Altamura
  • Ebody
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Take it Easy

Taking it Easy

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are heading out to go camping for a few days, and plan to just take it easy this holiday weekend.  Whatever your plans are, we hope you have a wonderful weekend yourselves.

Traveling Companions

These comfy casual Yareli pants from Wellmade are coming with us on the trip.  Best of all, I picked them up completely for free, just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group!  With lots of attention to details such as the zippered cuffs, a ribbed design for ease of movement around the knees, and zippered pockets in the front, these pants are sure to please.  I really like the tan colored botanical pattern, which is scattered across the blue background – it’s just so pretty!  If you’d prefer a different color scheme, the designer thoughtfully included a HUD which allows you to change to a darker green background with pale blue flowers.   Versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars are included in this free gift.  To pick up a copy for yourself, activate the Fab Free group tag, teleport to the shop and click the vendor, which is way up high on the wall of gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in S, M, and L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Isis and Venus

A Trio For You

Sweet Spring

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a pretty spring frock with you that I picked up as a free group gift.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

It’s Really One of Three

This cream colored dress is the April gift for members of the Meva Update Group, but it’s just *part* of it.  Tucked inside the package are two other versions, so you get not one, but three dresses.  The sleeveless design, high neckline and scooped back make the Meva Flowers Dress 2 suitable for many occasions from casual to more dressy.   It all depends on how you choose to accessorize.  The fabric features delicate white blossoms scattered across a pale peach background, which creates a lovely design.  If this print is not up your alley, there is also a similar pattern scattered over a darker gray background, and a version which features a bold, vibrant floral motif.  The frock is designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to the shop, activate the Meva Update Group tag and click the vendor.  There is a 100L join fee, but membership grants you access to 9 other gifts on the wall nearby.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Walk Lightly On The Earth

Sunrise

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I traveled down the path of the Save Earth Hunt and discovered this cute casual outfit over at The Sissy Bar.  It’s perfect for a warm spring day spent exploring the beach, and it costs just 1 Linden dollar plus a bit of time spent searching.

There is No Planet B

This hunt is all about creating awareness about Save Earth Day, which is celebrated on April 22nd.  The prizes all bring to mind the saying “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle,” and are related to nature and the environment.  I just love the circular tree design on this comfy top, and the way the back is loosely tied at the top and dangles open below.  It’s just so pretty!  The gray shorts feature a coordinating leaf print in light green and blue.  Each piece is worn separately, so you can mix and match with other items from your wardrobe for added flexibility.   I can see myself wearing this Fabulous Find over and over.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  Until next time, happy hunting!

A Perfect Pair

You're My Best Friend

Happy Monday, Fabulous Readers!  I know, I know……it’s a Monday, so how good could it be?  Well, how about a new dress and fancy heels for a grand total of 35 Linden dollars?  My best friend helped me discover this budget friendly duo, which sure made my day!

“I Must Have Flowers, Always, Always”

Monet said it, and I have to admit I agree.  What better way to welcome spring than by wearing a cheerful floral print?  Down at the Spring Has Sprung sale at The Wash, I spotted the lovely Lana dress at the Baci Shop cart for just 10 Linden dollars.  Featuring an off-the-shoulder design, a translucent shawl on the bodice and a generous hem, this frock is sure to be a warm weather favorite.  Although there are no sizes specifically dedicated to classic avatars, there is an alpha layer in the folder and all the mesh body versions are labeled fitmesh, so I think it would probably work for girls who are rocking a classic body type.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Alpha Mask

Chase Your Dreams…In High Heels, Of Course!

My sexy heels came from the Oh Pair! cart at The Wash and cost just 25 Linden dollars.  They feature criss-crossed straps, which add a touch of elegance and the most adorable bows with tassels in the back.  Although I chose black to coordinate with the ebony background color of my dress, the designer generously included a texture change HUD that is packed with 24 colors and 2 choices for the metal portion.  You can mix and match these colors because you have the opportunity to individualize the different components of the shoes such as the main color, the strings, the tassels, the pearls, the heel and the sole.  It’s like getting a whole closet full of heels, which makes them very versatile!  The folder includes shoes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet.

Ripley and I are off to see what other Fabulous Finds we can discover to share with you all.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Blossom by Blossom, the Spring Begins

Spring Flowers

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I made a return trip to the Spring Has Sprung sale over at The Wash and discovered a complete outfit for just 50L.  The Rosa Outfit from the Finale Couture cart packs plenty of springtime appeal with its delicate aqua background and floral pattern.

Pretty Posies

Featuring a curve-hugging design, delicate spaghetti thin shoulder straps, and vertical piping, this frock flatters your figure.  I love how it leaves your shoulders mostly bare to soak up sun rays!  Its skirt falls almost to knee length.  In addition to versions for mesh avatars, the folder also includes fitmesh in a variety of sizes and an alpha layer for classic avatars, so there’s something for everyone.  Not only do you get this lovely dress, but you also get coordinating heels and a double stranded necklace with a resizer – all for just 50 Linden dollars.  The sale continues until April 10th, so there’s plenty of time left to find some budget-friendly bargains.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Heels for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink feet

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Forget the Glass Slippers…

Break Time

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a relaxing weekend.  Ripley and I decided to head over to the Spring Has Sprung sale going on down at the Cart Wash and discovered this complete outfit, which includes slouchy boots and a belt for a very budget-friendly price.

…Life is Better in Boots!

There’s no doubt about it, I love me a pair of high heeled boots, and when they come with skin tight leather pants and a crop top, I love ’em even more!  Over at the Finale Couture cart down at The Wash, you can scoop up the Gina outfit, which includes everything I’m wearing except the hat, and still have plenty of Linden dollars left to do even more shopping.  The sweater features a plum colored plaid, long, solid black sleeves and a high collar.  Glossy leather pants, a belly chain with a triangular charm, and high heeled leather boots round out the package.  For just 10 Linden dollars, you will have a complete outfit!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Belly chain and boots for Belleza, Maitreya and Sink

The sale at The Wash continues until April 10th, so there is still plenty of time left for you to make a visit.  The pupster and I are going to mosey around and see what other Fabulous Finds we’ll make at Spring Has Sprung.  Until next time, happy shopping!

A Boho Babe

Spring morn

Hullo there, Fabulous Readers!  I was still feeling the boho vibe when I got up this morning, so I figured it was a great time to share another of the hunt prizes I picked up while traveling down the path of The Boho Hunt.   Just like the shorts in my last post, this hunt item cost only 1 Linden dollar.

Blame It On My Gypsy Soul

The adorable top in my photo can be yours if you uncover the miniature white llama hidden in the Trashed store.  Featuring spaghetti style straps, a cropped hemline and an arrow decorated with a pretty floral and feather motif, the Boho Babe top is sure to be a warm weather favorite.  I really like its muted color scheme, so I decided to pair it with a simple pair of white capris to create a clean, casual outfit, perfect for a walk on a misty morning.  I’m sure it would look just as fantastic with jeans, shorts or a skirt.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody Classic
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin Classic
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ Into the Future

Bonjour

Bonjour, Fabulouses!  Real life has been super hectic lately.  It seems like it was just Friday and now all of a sudden it’s Wednesday!  Time is flying by.  I hope your week is going well.  Speaking of flying, I’m pedaling out to do some more hunting, but wanted to quickly share this outfit with you.  The pieces are separates, but to my eyes, they look like they were made to go together.  The best part is, my clothes only cost one little Linden dollar!

Think Pink

This adorable Bimi halter-style top in a bright raspberry hue is a free gift from Baby Monkey for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Featuring a high neckline and and a low cut back, this little number is ideal for those sultry late spring days ahead.   I really like the folds in the fabric and the way it hugs your curves and allows you to soak up the sun.  It is designed for a variety of mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate your Fab Free group tag, right click on the board and pay 1L, which will immediately be refunded to you along with the delivery of your gift.

A Little Bit Boho

Ripley and I ventured along the trail of The Boho Hunt recently.  There are 34 stops along the way with prizes that cost 1 Linden dollar each.  Over at Horr Menswear, if you find the tiny white llama concealed in the shop, you can scoop up these cute little blue Monetta shorts for yourself.  They ride low on your hips and are packed with details such as rivets on the pockets and a bright pink wraparound belt, which coordinates beautifully with the Bimi crop top.  There’s something in this hunt prize for everyone, because versions for classic as well as mesh bodies are tucked inside the package.  The shorts are actually from Ambient Fashion, but they are hidden in Horr Menswear for the hunt.  The event runs until March 31, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing for yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
