Good Tidings to You

Merry Christmas to You

Hello Fabulouses!  The pupster and I wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas!  We hope Santa makes your dreams come true and that you enjoy a lovely holiday with family and friends.  If you have a few moments and want to get into the holiday spirit in a lovely sim, I’d recommend checking out Zimminy.  As the snowflakes drifted lazily through the air, Ripley was super excited to catch a glimpse of Kris Kringle himself soaring through the sky with his sleigh and reindeer.  He’s on his way, fabulous readers!

The Big Guy’s Hat

What holiday outfit would be complete without a Santa Hat to top it all off?  I picked up my Tsurara Santa hat and hair combination as a free gift over at Argrace.  You need to be a subscriber to pick up this holiday goodie, but the group is free to join.  Inside the package you’ll find two versions of this hairstyle – one with the long hair pulled over your right shoulder, the other over your left.  Also included is a full color HUD so you can change up the hue of your tresses however you like.  The HUD also contains a resize feature so you can adjust the hair to fit your head as well as three options for your chest size.  While you’re there, you might want to pick up the other holiday hair free gifts set out as well.

The Cart Sale is Still Going Strong!

Rip and I made another trip to the Winter Wonderland Sale over at the Wash and picked up the rest of my outfit, for just 10L each.  My adorable cropped sweater with extra long sleeves and a cozy cowl neck is from the Kuid Clothing cart.  I really like the combination of black and red, but if that’s not your cup of tea, there are other color combos available, and for just 10L, it’s a very budget-friendly wardrobe addition.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • Venus

My pants and boots combination also came from the Wash.  Over at the Battle Fairy cart, I spotted the Bijou Pants/Boots Wicked in black and thought they’d coordinate well with my sweater.  It’s really convenient that you can wear both with one click.  It’s so frustrating sometimes to find pants that can be worn with boots in SL.  I don’t know how many times I’ve found what I thought would be the perfect pairing only to discover that the pant cuffs poked through the boots.  You won’t have to worry about that happening with this 10L find.  These babies were made to go together!  The form fitting pants sit low on your waist and tuck perfectly inside the thigh high, high heeled boots.  I really like the lacing detail on the back complete with golden eyelets and strings hanging down.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Well, that’s a wrap for this post.  Speaking of wrapping……….I put off all of my gift wrapping until today, so I’d better get started.  This could take awhile.  Until my next post, happy holidays to you!

The Art of Avoiding RL Grocery Shopping

Flowers and Lace

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post while I put off RL grocery shopping to share a couple of budget friendly finds I picked up over at The Cart Sale at The Wash.  I think the pretty floral mini shorts and the warm weather lacy top really work well together.  The best part?  I only spent a grand total of 20L to put together this fun, casual look.  If only my RL grocery bill was that small!  With two kids, three cats, and two hungry German Shepherds, that is just a fantasy though…

Sweet Yet Sassy

To create my Sunday afternoon look, I visited two of the vendor displays at The Wash.  First, at the Kuid Clothing cart, the Wings Shorts caught my attention with their pink and green floral pattern scattered across a frayed white denim fabric.  With four pockets for stashing the every day essentials, a buttoned closure, and an eye-catching pointed hemline in the back, these mini shorts hugged my curves beautifully.  This design fits many of the popular mesh body styles, and is priced at just 10 Linden dollars.

To Top It All Off

The feminine print on my shorts called for a frilly, girly top, and I found just what I was looking for at the Baci Shop display.  The 10 Linden Badalado Top features an off-the-shoulder, cropped design, generous ruffles and a pretty swirled lace texture.  I opted to go with the white version, but with the 80 color HUD that is tucked inside the package, I can change hues to my heart’s content.  I really like the soft, romantic look created by the layered lace, and could see pairing this shirt with skirts or longer pants as well as the Wings Shorts.

Ripley and I discovered quite a few bargains at The Wash, and will return soon with another post.  Until next time, happy shopping!
