The second version has solid colors for both the jumpsuit and bralette.

Notes on Ombré

Notes on Ombré

I’m all about the ombré look.  There is something quite appealing in the fading of colours together that makes me feel a bit like I’m wearing a painter’s palette.  I can picture myself swirling graciously on a canvas.  Or perhaps, depending on the colours, I can be an electric current.  Today I’m feeling a bit like the latter, but that might be because of this hot outfit, and not just the colours!

Hucci Mama!

Hucci has provided me with this really cool jumpsuit.  It comes all in one piece and includes the attached heels!  I love the pastel ombré of course, and the outfit makes me feel like making my way to a club and holding court on the dance floor.  In fact, that’s where I’m heading in the photo!  You can grab this FREE gift by heading to Hucci, clicking on the subscriber (It’s the big sign that says Group Join), then clicking on the little box that says “Touch Here to get Previously Sent Items”.  A menu will pop up, and from there you choose the February Gift, and click “Deliver”.  Ta-Da!  You may have to be a little patient, but it will happen 😉

True Colours

When I’m feeling playful, I always reach out for some bright colours to wear.  You really can’t beat a pastel hair colour, and some hot pink.  Luckily, these generous SL creators have got my back!  My sweet do’ was a gift at Hairology, and was previously blogged by Pru HERE.

Hot in Hot Pink

Safira has a few free group gifts out right now, and one of them is this bright and cheerful jumpsuit.  It comes in a shiny midnight blue as well, for the days when you’re feeling only slightly less exuberant.  The Safira group is free to join, and there are quite a few nice group gifts in the store.  It’s definitely worth the visit!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

The North Star

Cae has a birthday gift out right now to celebrate 5 years of pretty jewelry in Second Life.  The North Star bracelet features super cute silver stars that encircle your wrist, and a larger silver charm adorned with blue gems.  Very delicate!  The group is currently 100 Linden to join, and you can find the group gift in the notices section of the group profile.  I’ve included a closeup below so you can see the detailing.

Ok Fab Free – go light up the world with those bright colours!

Street Goddess

Writing on the Wall_001

I can read the writing on the wall… and it’s telling me that today is a latex day. Thanks to ArisAris I can have some latex goodness and be a cool goddess on the street, complete with sunglasses for just 2 Linden total! All I needed to do was visit the Aloha Fair for their special gifts 😉

Versatility is stylish.

ArisAris put out two very special gifts at the Aloha Fair and I couldn’t pass up either of them. I picked up the Goddess Jumpsuit and felt like the jumpsuit’s namesake. This jumpsuit comes in a multitude of sizes to fit mesh bodies, and with all the color change options is very versatile.

You’ll be getting a hud to change the main part of the jumpsuit between one of five colors (black, gold, pink, white or red) and each color has a solid option, a mesh torso option, or a torso option that has embroidered flowers. Additionally, you can change the color of the belt, and the pearl on the belt. So many choices! I’ve included the vendor advertisement below to give you a sneak peek at the additional textures available to you on this amazing outfit.

Can you believe you get all this just for visiting the ArisAris booth and buying the gift beach ball for just 1L?

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh XXS – L with Alphas
  • TMP
  • Flow
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Add a pair.

The ArisAris booth had a second gift set out that I felt matched the feel of the Goddess Jumpsuit so I picked it up too… and donned this fantastic pair of mesh Divina sunglasses. They are easily adjustable to fit your face and I moved them down just a bit on my nose to get the right look. They have that movie star glamour to them and for just 1L are well worth the price!

Enjoy the Aloha Fair while it is going on. There are lots of amazing gifts and deals to be had!

Got Your Goat

Huck Thought He Was a Dog

When I was a child I had a goat (I lived on a farm) that thought it was my dog. It followed me everywhere. I wanted a dog pretty badly then and wasn’t yet allowed to have one. So that goat was my favorite animal on the farm. At least until he grew horns and began to butt me! So I couldn’t help be enchanted by these little goats I ran across on this quaint little sim.

Speaking of quaint…

When was the last time you visited Snowpaws? They have a roomful of group gifts and free no group required Lucky Letter Boards and Mini Mania Boards. I won my outfit off one of the free Mini Mania Boards after slapping them all! And I came away with several new free outfits from the free Lucky Letter Boards as well. There are so many goodies to be had there! My outfit is fully mesh and comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

Paired off.

I paired my new outfit with a pretty blue drop necklace from BricOle’s off the marketplace for only 30L. If you like this piece you might like some of their other items. Be sure to check out their online store for low price/high quality jewelry. I did discover that when I put the necklace on, I had to click the pendant and size it up (size up this prim only) to make it meet the black cord. But that was an easy fix to get such a pretty necklace at a such a deal.

Ready for Rain

Ready for Rain

It’s Sunday instead of Friday, but I am bringing you Friday news! And I’m ready for a little rain to wash away the weekend blues. Sometimes rain is refreshing you know? 🙂

First… this is a head to toe look. So HURRY over to Elikatira, where you will find that their Fifty Linden Friday offering of hair that I’m wearing in the picture above in essential colors is still out. For just 50L this pretty mesh hair is yours! But hurry! I’m not sure how much more time you have before the offer will disappear!

My jumpsuit is courtesy of FineRain Creations, and is their contribution to the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Stop by the main-store and for 1L and a little hunting time, this outfit in all the standard mesh sizes in this pretty yellow gold color is yours! It fits and flows beautifully and comes with a great alpha layer for standard bodies.

Last, but not least, I found a pair of shoes I loved at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. These too are a 1L Hunt gift. These are the store’s offering for the Addicted to Applier’s Hunt. Just hunt down the icon and buy it for 1L. You’ll get these stunning black alligator heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

Make a Wish

Make a Wish

I have always found something magical in Second Life about dancing. And in real life, when I have gone to festivals, I have always been taken in by the beauty of different types of dancing. Veil dancers, especially, have taken my interest.

Right now, there are four gifts available for FREE at [House of Ruby] — two each for both men and women. They are beautiful, classy bodysuits that could be used for lingerie, or as depicted above, for something more exotic even.

If you join the [House of Ruby] group (it is a FREE join) you can get a matching men and women’s Ruby Leopard bodysuit or unitard for FREE. The women’s suit includes a small top for modesty. These suits do not include system layers, but you get Omega and Slink appliers for each.

If you hit the subscriber (again this is FREE), you’ll be gifted with the suit that you see Loki wearing, except that the difference is the color — it is the “Leopard” color instead. Just as the group gift includes both a male and female version, the subscriber includes both a male and female version as well.

Crossbones

Snapshot_001

Good morning, FabFree! I’m feeling my Gothic side this morning, and I have just the FREE goodies to help you feel your Gothic side too! We going to make a two different stops and put together a fun FREE outfit.

First, head to Kreepshow Kouture, and slap the two Midnight Mania Boards. Both of them are FREE and do not require a group. It only takes 50 slaps to lock these babies down, and from what I saw yesterday, they lock down multiple times a day (unless that has changed since then). I’m showing you the Crossbone Cami, which is one of the two prizes you can win when the boards lock down.

Once you win the Cami, unboxing this jumper is quite a treat. It comes in all the standard fitmesh sizes, as well as Maitreya, and Slink and its own alpha is included as well.

Snapshot 4_001

My FREE Septum piercing is courtesy of Krova and is an SLB13 gift at We ❤ RP. It was quite large when I put it on, making me believe it was intended for male avatars (it was also silver) but I happily discovered that it was modifiable. To get the look I wanted, I sized it down with some editing, added a gold tint to it, made it full bright to give it a bit of a “sheen” and voila! You may wish to make it other colors!

My necklace is yet another SLB13 gift FREE from We ❤ RP… this time from Souzou Eien. This lacy Renaissance Pearls necklace added a feminine touch to my Gothic attire that I thought was just perfect.  😉

A Swan in Eden

I think I can turn just about anything into a fantasy of some sort…

A Swan in Eden [2]

… and so far I’m having a blast with the Cart Wash Sale!

There are so many amazing creators who are giving us SL fashionistas a great chance to enhance our wardrobe for minimal wallet guilt and it’s truly glorious. And the Less Than 3 cart at the Wash Sale stole my heart with its sexy Eden Jumpsuits!

What I love about this super sexy cut-out body suit is that with the right accessories and in the right environment, it works for fetish wear, casual wear, fantasy wear — you name it! And not only did it come in system layers — but for only 10L you get omega appliers to work with your mesh body as well! (I’m showcasing it here in the white version with my Maitreya Lara Mesh body.)

The body suit also comes in a gorgeous hot pink color, as well as a rich brown, and a svelte black that were all only 10L each. I’d be sure to grab up all these colors as this is a steal of a deal you won’t want to pass up!

A Swan in Eden [1]

For me the perfect accessory to make this sensuous body suit fit my fantasy wardrobe was the newest group gift from Finesmith Jewelry. The lovely lavender headpiece and necklace — aptly named Swan Garden — were striking when paired with this body suit and gave it the fantasy look I desired. The Group Gift is free if you are in the Group, and the Group is only 25L to join… well worth it in my mind considering that there are many past gifts still available to pick up. Just turn to your left as you enter the store!

Below is a picture of the other Less Than 3 Cart Wash offerings. As you can see, they are all fantastic! Be sure to stop by this fun cart and make off with the goodies!

Ombre my hombre!

may1_001

“Drea, aren’t you colorful” was pretty much what I heard when I slid into this colorful orange, pink, and yellow She Did That Ombre fit from Lush by Coco, and ladies there is not a thing wrong with being colorful. We’re in May, and summer is just around the corner! So it’s time to shine just as bright as the sun, and let the colors splash onto the scene. All of your are fashionistas, and deserve to break necks the minute you walk into a room. This outfit right here makes a bold statement, from the mix of its colors down to the cuffs, while enhancing your curves!

may1_003

To top off the look, I snagged this beautiful Joi Remy Essentials hair style from Iconic, which is available as a group gift. I love the wild curls and if you touch the headband, you can change the designs. If you’re a curly hair diva, or wanting to try a new look, make your way on over to Iconic now! The attention to detail, hair highlights, and movement is amazing. The group is 300L to join, but its well worth the investment for the quality and styling of hair that is available at this store!

The Tres Beau Belled Set is a swag bag item from The Event,Hollywood…hopefully you had a chance to visit that sim during the event. Also, unfortunately the shoes I am wearing are from a store that is no longer opened. I have hunted marketplace and the grid looking, and I’ve had no such luck. 😦
