Hey You With the Red Dress On

Red Dress

Well, hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are still checking out the trail of The Red Hunt.  As you can see, we found another gorgeous crimson item over at AlaFolie that I’m excited to share with you.  I couldn’t help humming this song as I tried my new dress on.  It just seemed to fit the occasion.

She Wants to Make a Night to Remember

Featuring a bright, cheerful cherry colored fabric with a sprinkling of flowers and petals, this fun little dress is sure to draw eyes your way.  The green centers of the blossoms really pop against the red background.  I love the asymmetrical hemline, which is longer in the back and a flirty length in front.  Thankfully, the designer tucked a pair of coordinating panties in the box, which come in handy because of the shorter length.  The skirt is fairly full as it falls gently from the high empire waistline.  Short sleeves and a scooped neckline complete the look.  To add this frock to your inventory, all you need to do is locate the diabetes awareness ribbon concealed somewhere in the shop, then pay 10 Linden dollars.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink Original
  • Slink Original Petite
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

We’re off to finish our afternoon walk before we lose the sunshine.  I love the cooler temperatures of fall, but the shorter days are a bummer, don’t you think?  Until next time, happy hunting!

Beautiful Blue

I'm So Blue

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post today to share an elegant outfit that you can pick up for free, just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  It looks like a one piece dress, but it’s actually a separate skirt and top, so it has the added plus of being able to mix and match with other wardrobe components.

Blue is Definitely Your Color

Featuring a subtle geometric print atop a royal blue background, the Yira outfit hugs all your curves.  With the arrival of September, cooler temperatures are not far off, so having three quarter sleeves and a maxi skirt length will come in handy, for sure.  I really like the subtle sheen of the fabric and the way the skirt widens below the knee so it is easy to move about freely.  Although Yira offers plenty of coverage, she also provides a sexy peek at your tummy with her cropped top.  The package includes fits for a variety of mesh bodies.  The best part?  You can scoop up this lovely blue concoction completely for free.  Simply don your Fab Free group tag, teleport to the Artizana shop, and pay the vendor 1 Linden (which is immediately refunded).  Easy peasy!

It’s a three day weekend, here in the US, and I’m really looking forward to having some extra time to explore SL and seek out some new, budget-friendly Fabulous Finds to share with our favorite readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Sleeping to dream about you

Sleeping to dream about you

No, this isn’t a fall post. It’s still summer. It will be summer forever in SL. Forever! …But I guess this is kind of a fall post. I can’t help it, when designers make such lovely autumn themed things! I’ve got lots of great things to tell you about today, including a super cute group gift and some items from the cart sale!

No shoes!

I love cute little foot accessories like this. That way I can kind of sort of appear fully dressed, but still not be wearing shoes! Win-win. Also, they’re so pretty! I got the foot jewels that I’m wearing here as a free group gift from KC Couture. They come rigged for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink and with a HUD so they can be customized. There are LOTS of color options for the cords and tassels and then a handful of metallic tones for the chain. The KC group is only 25L to join and there is a wall in the store with a bunch of group gifts that are all really nice. I really should wear them more often, if only I could be bothered to wear shoes…

Short Dress

How could this possibly be a fall post if I’m not wearing shoes or any article of clothing past my thighs? My fabulous sweater dress is by JellyRoll and I got it for 10L from the cart sale at The Wash. There are 8 autumn hues to choose from and each is 10L. It comes sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Mara
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • 5 classic sizes, XXS-L

Okay fine, the bench is definitely fall…

I’m not much of a decor blogger so I’m not sure how much justice I’ve done this bench, but it’s really cute! It is another find at The Wash, this time from Tylar’s Treasures, and priced at just 10L for the cart sale. The pose that I’m using did not come with it, the only poses included are couples poses and since it’s just me I obviously couldn’t use those. There are brightly colored autumn leaves scattered about on the ground in front of it and on the sides and I just love the arbor across the top.

Great stuff, right? Totally worth embracing fall. ❤

Color Me Beautiful

Color Me Beautiful

Happy Tuesday FabFree!

I hope everyone’s week as set off to a great start! I have had quite a busy morning today, but while browsing our FabFree group gifts I saw this cute and festive romper and couldn’t resist the urge. I was born and raised in Cali, and my inner Cali girl, or as I call it, my “inner hippie” loved the colors and ran for the hills with it. Snickers. The Mandala Romper by The Beautiful Ones, is an beautiful freebie for our members here at FabFree! The colors in the design on the top half of the romper are so bright and fun and the teal used on the bottom half and through out the outfit was eye-catching and drew me to this piece! You can see some previous coverage done on this creator by Love Trill, [here].

Don’t forget to wear those FabFree group tags, when heading over to The Beautiful Ones to grab this free group gift! If you aren’t a member the Fabulously Free in SL in-world group is free to join!

A Sprinkling of Gold Dust

Gold Dust

Hello Fabulous Readers!  While checking out the Dumpster Diving Hunt with Ripley, I picked up a really cute mini dress perfect for a date night, and happened to notice there was a male prize in the shop as well.  So, I woke Stan up from his early evening nap, and led him over to Mishmash Fusion.  It’s hard to believe we found such classy clothes dumpster diving, isn’t it?

Hers

I am modeling the strappy Starseed Mini Dress in the color Star Dust.  This little number will hug your curves, but has a skirt with enough fullness to make moving around a snap.  There is a “v” shaped notch in the hemline which adds visual interest.  I really, really like the spattering of golden glitter on the outside edges of the frock!  In the back, the top of the dress sits just below your shoulder blades.  Best of all, items in the Dumpster Diving Hunt are completely free, so all it cost was a bit of time searching around.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

His

Stan is sporting the coordinating Etienne Suit (also free from Mishmash Fusion).  It features a black jacket, a button down shirt complete with a black tie, creased trousers, and a stardust sprinkled vest, which complements my dress beautifully.  The outfit is an all-in-one, so you can’t wear the individual components separately, but I think Stan looks quite dashing!  Versions for classic avatars as well as popular mesh bodies are tucked inside the package, so there’s something for everyone in here.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

We are off to see what else we can uncover in the Dumpster Diving Hunt.  Since it runs until August 31st, we still have plenty of time.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Boudoir Secrets

Boudoir Secrets (2)

Hello FabFree!

As you may have heard Cosmopolitan’s 6th Anniversary as started, you can see previous coverage on the event by Love {here}! There are gifts a plenty here, all you need to do is be a member of the in-world group, which is free to join and shop away! All of the gifts are freebies for the celebration of the event’s 6th Anniversary.

So, after shopping and gathering my free gifts at Cosmopolitan, I rush home to see what goodies are in store for me. The very first gift I open is a sexy little lingerie number by Kenny Rolands. Now, I am a HUGE fan of this creator, have been for quite some time, their textures and attention to detail is outstanding. This is a one piece lingerie set, that is quite risque, a little blue bow covers the most sensitive of areas, while the bra is left open for a revealing concept.

Kenny Rolands- Miss Cute Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza- Freya
  • Slink- Hourglass

I love lacy pretty accessories and Supernatural has a beautiful little freebie at the Cosmopolitan event. It is a little collar/choker, with a multi-color HUD for the band. This gift does offer both open collar and non open collar options, for those it may interest. The accents of gold and little white gems, really do bring a sense of soft beauty to this piece.

Supernatural- Lovely Collar Options:

  • Open Collar
  • Non Open Collar (Just a simple accessory)

Let Freedom Ring, Let The White Dove Sing

Let Freedom Ring, Let The White Dove Sing

I love the 4th of July. Besides it being just a few days off from my birthday, it’s also just quintessential summer. The 4th of July means summer and summer means the beach. The beach makes me think of the boardwalk and that special time when it’s just about to get dark and almost time for fireworks. I love fireworks. And fireworks over water? A billion times better. Ah it’s truly the best time of the year.

If you don’t live in the US, this post is still for you too. The free stuff I have to show you is universally awesome, I promise!

Stars and Stripes

I thought I better wear my super cute and festive romper a few days early so that you’d have time to go grab it for the occasion. Just pop over to Elusive, join the free group, and it’s yours as a free gift! You’ll get the romper and a pair of red heels to go with it. The romper comes sized for:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Flips and Flops

I knew that I wanted flip flops to round out my look, and was so excited when I found a pair as a group gift at KC Couture. The KC group is only 25L to join and there’s a nice collection of gifts to scoop up for such a small amount of L! Among the free gifts are these great free flip flops. I would have happily paid 4 or 5 times the join price for them alone. The included HUD is full of color options for the strap and bunches of really cute color and pattern options for the bottom as well. There are sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. I know I’l get lots of use out of these great flip flops…when I remember to wear shoes, that is.

Ironics and Peaces?

Sometime picking a naming pattern for my headings is a mistake, but I’m not a quitter, okay? 😜 When I visited The Arcade earlier this month I made a mental note to go back to snap some shots. So yeah, I was the annoying girl obviously taking pictures at an event. BUT it’s almost over so it’s not like I was taking up space and preventing other people from being able to tp in. This great pose I’m using is called Ironic Peace and it is free! It’s available from Pacagaia on the marketplace for 0L. Ger it here. I think it’s the perfect pose (at the perfect price!) in the perfect location.

Misty Summer Morn

Misty Summer Morn

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are pausing during our walk on this misty morning to tell you about a gorgeous dress that I picked it up as a free group gift over at Patty CK Fashion.  It features lacy white fabric accented with bands of geometric patterns in bright, jewel tones.  I just love the contrast between light and dark colors in this frock!  Dora’s off the shoulder design makes it terrific for summer, and maxi dresses are absolutely my favorite go to’s (even in RL).  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Teleport Hub Group, which has a 10L join fee, but as I’ve said before, this is one group that is well worth the investment, because it offers members free gifts across the grid.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

We are off to explore the beautifully landscaped grounds of the Devin’s Eye sim.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Oh Baby It’s a Wild World

Tiger Lily

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Ripley and I took a walk in the cool, fragrant woods on the Ren Faire sim.  It sure beat the 113 degrees real life threw my way!  I couldn’t resist posing for a snapshot in front of a bed of tiger lilies.  They echoed the hue of my new dress beautifully.

A Free Gift for a Fabulous Group

Isn’t the “Alone Again” frock a beauty?  Featuring an asymmetrical hemline and slender shoulder straps, it gracefully drapes over your curves.  The neckline in front is quite high, but the back is open and allows the summer breeze to caress your skin.  I just love the vivid hues in the fabric!  The pattern is called “animal,” and I can see the echo of tiger stripes and a leopard print design in the texture.  With fit mesh for classic avatars and mesh body versions, this free gift from Entice is ideal for most avatars.  The designer even included two alphas – one for smaller sizes and one for larger sizes.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply activate the Fabulously Free in SL group tag (it’s completely free to join), and click the vendor.   If you are a fan of bold colors and dramatic textures, this is sure to become a summer favorite!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh
  • Alpha layer for smaller and larger sizes
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Until my next post, happy shopping!
