Let’s Go – Summer is Waiting!

Summer is Waiting

Hello there Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of done with winter and its viruses!  Ripley and I decided to make a break for summer.  We’ve got the car packed up, I’m wearing a brand new outfit that I picked up for free, and the pupster has his favorite fetch toys stowed away right next to the box of Ripley Snacks.  There’s plenty of room if you want to join us.  Hop on in!

She’s a Wild Child

Just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL Group, you can pick up my entire outfit for free over at the Alias! shop.  Featuring a tie dye halter top, cut off denim jeans shorts with a narrow suede belt, and cute tip toe sandals, Wild Child is ideal for an impromptu visit to summer.  The generous designer tucked a color change HUD for the shirt and the heels into the gift box, which gives you the choice between 12 different color schemes.  As you can see, the shoes and top coordinate beautifully together!  Besides the fact that the entire ensemble is completely free, the best part is that it includes versions for classic avatars as well as for mesh bodies!  There is a note inside the folder which explains that if you have an Ebody or Tonic mesh body, the outfit may or may not fit your avatar depending on your shape and the alpha included with your mesh body.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Top – Standard Size in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Shorts – Fitmesh Classic XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

I almost forgot my sunscreen!  We’re going to make a pit stop on the way to grab some SPF50, as well as plenty of snacks and drinks for the road.  We’ll be leaving soon, so don’t delay if you’re up for a trip, too.  Until next time, bye bye winter colds and flu…. I am SO over you!!

Ringed in Roses

Ringed in Roses

After a long weekend of busy and running around, I am happy to get back on the Grid for some relaxation.  So I headed straight to my new favorite place to wander: Soul2Souls Highlands.

Roses for days

Luckily I had a brand new outfit to wander about in. I especially pleased with my new jeans. These are the ‘high waisted boot cut jeans’ from the Sissy Bar. These are the 1L Hunt prize for the New Years Hunt running until January 31. Just find the little red question mark somewhere in the store and they can be yours too!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Classic Mesh XXS-L
  • eBody
  • SLink
  • TMP

Staying Cozy

I needed a nice cozy top to go wandering, these Highlands are still pretty chilly, ya know. So I made a stop on the marketplace to find the perfect new sweater. And !gO! was my “Go -to”. This is the ‘Balbina’ sweater and it’s a 1L gift from !gO! on the marketplace. There are several great 1L gifts on !gO!’s page so check those out too.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh XXS-L

One Magical Winter Day

One Winter Day

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m finally feeling better and am so glad to be back to blogging again.  I’ve missed you!  Ripley and I celebrated our return to SL by exploring the trail of the Magical Winter Hunt.  At C!L Botique, we discovered this gorgeous winter gown for just 1 Linden dollar, plus a bit of time searching.  Trust me, this outfit is well worth the effort to locate the hunt object, which is a snowflake.

Winter Elegance

Everything I have on in the photo is included in the hunt prize, as well as a cape that I opted not to wear.  Featuring an ivory color scheme and delicate details, I would have happily paid way more than one Linden dollar for it.  I just love the shoulder cut outs which offer a glimpse of skin while still leaving long sleeves to keep your arms warm.  The gown itself features a silvery trim and a beautifully detailed, ornate texture.  Its long train sweeps the ground, which makes it quite suitable for formal events.  The fluffy cap is sure to keep your head toasty warm on the chilliest winter day.  I have to say, this outfit has to be one of my most favorite hunt prizes!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until next time, happy hunting!

New Year, Fresh Start

New Year's Walk

Hello Fabulouses!  So, one of my goals for the New Year is to go for more walks and get some more exercise.  Since I’m still sick in RL (started antibiotics today, so I should be feeling better soon), I’m gonna have to get today’s exercise on SL.  Ripley and I went for a stroll over at the Lemon Beach sim.  I can’t always say that I would wear the outfits I blog on SL in RL, but I definitely would wear today’s!

A Jeans and Hoodie Kind of Day

I love my real life jean jacket and I was super excited to see that Complex is offering a Denim Jacket/Hoodie combo as a free group gift.  Fellas, this is designed for you all, but I just had to have it for myself (sorry, Stan, but you can go get your own – did I mention it’s FREE?).  The best part about this set is that it comes with a texture change HUD so you can alter the color of the hoodie and its lining.  You’ll have 11 choices for the hoodie, which include patterns as well as solids, and 4 options for the lining.  The jacket comes in one size only – fitted, but as you can see, I was able to wear it just fine on my Maitreya mesh body.  Since it’s from a men’s clothing store, I’m sure it will work just as well for the guys, too.  There is no alpha layer for classic avatars, but it’s worth a shot if you have a classic avi, after all, it is completely free.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you have to be a member of the Complex Updates Group, but there is no join fee.

I hope you are having a great week.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Obscure

Obscure

Happy Fifth Day of Christmas, my darlings!  I know many people are itching to get the Christmas tree packed up (I know Love is), but I am one that keeps the feeling going all the way til Epiphany (that’s January 6th!).  Nowadays, it seems that Christmas decorations are out the day after Halloween, so I don’t blame people for being ready to move on, but I’m hanging in there.  I know my outfit isn’t particularly Christmassy today, but it does reflect some of the things that bring joy to me – a band tee and some shiny and fabulous lip gloss!

You’ve Never Heard of Them

Monument have got a new free group gift out!  It’s this really cool and customized band t-shirt (the back even features some imaginary tour dates)!  The description of the gift was quite evocative for me, reminding me of when people used to buy band shirts in grimy basement shops with dim lighting (They also sold posters, patches and hackey sacks – you know the places) and when someone asked you about the band, you’d inevitably answer with “you’ve probably never heard of them”.  Classic.  Anyway, to grab your own shirt, sized for Maitreya bodies, just join the group for free!  There are two other cute gifts waiting for you too.  You may want to hurry though, the group will only be free to join until January 1st!

Slick Lips

Sintiklia also have a new gift for the holidays out, and that is a dizzying array of lipgloss with an Omega applier.  There are so many different colours to choose from, but I went with my fave black to round out the look nicely.  You can get yours by joining the Sintiklia group for 250L.  There are loads and loads of other gifts there too, with the rumour of a new hairdo coming out for the New Year.

I’m wishing you all peace, joy and rock n’roll!

A New Dress for the New Year

Giada

Hello Fabulouses!  I’ve been battling a virus this week in RL.  It’s such a bummer to be sick while on vacation!  Hopefully you are feeling great and are planning on attending some holiday parties.  If you are looking for a sexy white dress to wear as you ring in the New Year, I’ve found an adorable one over at the Winter Wonderland Cart Sale at the Wash.  In fact, for a very budget-friendly 10 Linden dollars, you’ll get everything I’m wearing in the photo – jewelry, frock and strappy heels.

Just Giada

One of the offerings at the Finale Couture cart, Giada in Vanilla, is just the sexiest dress!  With a high neckline and full back, accompanied by an asymmetrical hemline, side cut out and dangling ties, this little number will surely draw admiring looks your way.  The package includes the three tiered golden necklace (with built in resize and re-texture capability) shown in my photo as well as coordinating high heeled shoes.  There’s also a pretty golden arm cuff which I didn’t notice until after I snapped my photo.  I love the ivory fabric and realistic folds in the texture!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Here’s wishing you a happy, healthy start to your new year.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Winter Wonderful

Winter Wonderful
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone who celebrates has been enjoying the Winter Holiday season. If your family is anything like mine, Christmas does not end on the 25th, but rather lasts through the weekend. Traveling to visit extended family and extending the celebration, there are plenty of opportunities to wear your not-so-ugly ugly Christmas sweaters. This perfect for visiting friends and family holiday look is all thanks to a recent group gift at HEC and the 2018 dollarbie holiday hairstyle from Exxess.

The Sweater & Skirt – This “Ugly Christmas Sweater” dress is a current group gift at Hot Elegant Clothing. It comes in several mesh sizes, and is suitable for classic and mesh avatars. It’s also free to all HEC group members, and the HEC group is just 25 linden to join. This sweater dress gift comes with a highly detailed hud that lets you customize the color of the sweater separately from the skirt, and adjust things like brightness, and opacity. There are also a few preset options for both the sweater and the skirt. To get yours, be sure to wear your HEC group tag and use the scroll-able group gift vendor to pick up your free gift.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), eBody, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Classic (for non mesh avatars)

Hairstyle w/Hat – This year’s Christmas Hairstyle by Exxess is now available on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. Cute and winter-y, the hairstyle comes with a color change hud with 2 menus of solid and mixed hair colors to pick from. The best part about the hair is there are 2 versions, a static version, and a “breeze” option that makes it look as though the hair is gently blowing in a breeze. Additionally the Exxess X-Mas hairstyles from previous years are still available for just 1 linden on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Wintry Afternoon Walk

Wintry Afternoon

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are all set for the upcoming holiday.  Ripley and I have been running quite a few errands and sneaking in some last minute shopping.  In the midst of all the holiday bustle, I wanted to make sure I told you about a sweet free outfit that you can pick up just for being members of Fabulously Free in SL as well as some free hair too.

A Little Christmas Dreaming

The Xmas Dream outfit from Alias! is perfect for the inevitable last minute trips to the store in the upcoming days.  This free gift features a thick, long sleeve sweater, curve-hugging capris and high heel sandals.  A texture change HUD for the top allows you to select from 8 different texture patterns, so it’s kind of like getting 8 sweaters in one.  I really like the generous length of the sleeves and the high collar.  The jean capris have upturned hems that fall to about mid calf.  Although pretty heels were tucked inside the box, I opted to pull on a cozy pair of boots since I knew the pupster and I would be trekking through the snow.  The shoes really are super cute – I just couldn’t see wearing them for our stroll down the country lane.  To pick up a copy of this free outfit for yourself, just switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the Alias! shop and tap the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Tonic

Santa’s Coming to Town

To add that extra touch of holiday spirit, I decided to wear another free group gift, the No Santa hat and hair from No.Match.  This is one of two hairstyles tucked inside the Carol Meets Santa gift box for members of the No.Match Update Group.  Although I think No Santa is intended for male avatars, it provided the perfect finishing touch for my casual shopping outfit.  A full fatpack of colors for the hair as well as a HUD containing twelve options for the hat’s texture make this a very versatile gift, indeed.  Although I opted not to wear it, the Carol hairstyle (also tucked inside the box) is a really pretty updo with curly locks, a jaunty texture-change bow, an optional pine branch add on, and Christmas earrings.  I’m including the vendor picture below so you can see both hairstyles.  To pick up a copy of Carol Meets Santa for yourself, you do need to be a member of the No Match Update Group, and there is a 50 Linden dollar join fee, but you get not one, but two free hairstyles, plus the opportunity to pick up more gifties in the future, so it’s well worth the price!

CAROL meets SANTA

Until next time, happy shopping!
