A Happy Ending for Your Monday

Sea Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  Yesterday in my post {HERE}, I told you about a free outfit and free earrings.  Well, today the pupster and I are back with a second pairing of a free frock and free baubles.  Now that’s a way to make Monday happier for sure!  Unfortunately, the free dress has been replaced with another gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL, which is a butterfly top.

Blossoms Galore

Summer blooms abound on the latest gift from Sweet Willows for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  With slender straps, a plunging neckline and dramatically low cut back and sides, this frock is most definitely for warm summer days.  You’ll be free to soak in the sunshine and have your skin caressed by warm summer breezes with this mini dress.  Delicate white flowers scattered across a solid color background lend a cheery vibe to the outfit.  I chose a sky blue fabric, but with the included HUD, you could also opt for pink, yellow, green or purple, so it’s quite flexible.  You’ll probably want to make strategic use of the alpha layer of your mesh body to preserve modesty while wearing it.  To add this saucy little number to your inventory, activate your Fab Free group tag (it’s totally free to join!), teleport to the shop and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Island Girl

Island Girl

Ripley and I returned to The Free Dove to search for the perfect finishing touch, and spotted just the right earrings at the Rebel Hope display.  The Island Girl baubles come in either the tan option that I am wearing in my photo or a green version.  The beads are the same; it’s just the cording that is different.  Speaking of the beads, it’s almost like they were made to coordinate with my new dress!  Blue-green glass beads sit atop round brownish ones decorated with white blossoms, which echo the pattern on the mini.  Best of all, these earrings are also free.  You just need to be a member of The Free Dove group (which is also free to join).

Until my next post, happy shopping!

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!

Of Gifts and Goals

Snowy Woods

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The pupster and I decided to go for a long walk today and think about 2018.  I like to do that as the year ends and decide what to keep and what to improve.  The arrival of the new year brings a fresh, clean start, and I’m determined to set some realistic goals for myself – goals that I can stick to.  As we meandered through the winter wonderland scenes at Lemon Beach, I began by listing what went well in the past year.  For starters, finding budget friendly fashions and sharing them with our favorite readers is going right at the top of the “Keep on Trucking” list.

I Sense a Gift (or Two)

Earlier in the day, Rip and I made a visit to the Sense Event.  This monthly happening showcases new releases in a variety of categories from menswear to furniture to home and garden to kids’ items to women’s wear.  Each round opens on the 18th of the month.  We arrived and landed in front of a Christmas tree surrounded by free gifts.  Many of them are for the ladies, but I happily discovered two for the gentlemen.  The free gift box from Alter contains a deep crimson button down shirt, classic black trousers and even shoes.  The Owen top features rolled back cuffs, a subtle vertical stripe pattern, realistic folds and several buttons undone.  The solid black trousers fit well and coordinate perfectly with the top.  To complete the look, the generous designer also tucked a pair of oxfords inside the package as well.  The best part about this gift is that it includes standard mesh for classic avatars as well as styles for popular mesh bodies – all for free!  You just need to be a member of the Sense Event group, but it’s completely free to join.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • XS, S, M, L and XL (includes separate alpha layers)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Setting Some Goals

Now that we’ve  examined what went well, it’s time to think of a few things to work on.  I know for sure Kat has some ideas for chores around the house, but I reckon there’s room on the “To Do” list for some quiet moments fishing with man’s best friend.  Isn’t that right, Rip?  Rip?! Now where did he get off to?  Ugh.  That dog can hear the rattle of a box of Ripley Snacks more than a country mile away.  Seems like he just might not be man’s best friend after all.  I guess I’d better head home and get to work repainting the trim around the doors and attacking that “Honey Do” list.  There will be plenty of time for fishing down the road (I hope).  Until next time, happy shopping!

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!

Visiting a Secret Garden

Secret Garden

Hello Fab Free!  I’m just popping in with a quick post about a free complete outfit that you can pick up just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  Since the group is completely free to join, this ensemble will cost you exactly zero Linden dollars – now that’s what I call a budget friendly, fabulous find!  My strapless bandeau top and jeans capris from Alias also includes the black high heel sandals in the picture.  A HUD with 15 options for textures, and a rainbow of color choices for the top enables you to fully customize to your heart’s desire.   I can see myself wearing this outfit over and over throughout the summer!  With wide cuffs that fall below the knee, and a fun chain-style belt, the soft grayish-blue capris will coordinate well with a variety of other tops, which enhances the versatility of this free gift.  Since the package includes versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, it’s a definite must have for your summer wardrobe!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Freya
