Why, yes! I would walk a mile in these shoes!

Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes has a motto: Shoes… need I say more? And nope, I don’t need to say more! Shoes from Lindy’s have never disappointed me and this Cart is full of gorgeous examples. I had that same trouble I’m having with all these carts: what do I choose to show!

PicMonkey Collage

SO I picked my favorites. First is ‘Eila’ with the back lacing and solid silver rivets. Next is Hanna with lots of buckles and belts. And last but not least is Meshell in a racy leopard print. Like all of Lindy’s shoes these are gorgeous builds. These particular shoes, except for the Naomi style which are for Slink High Feet,  are for system feet so if you haven’t gone over to mesh you can still have stylin’ footwear.

Delicious Reds

Hello again, my dears and happy happy Friday! The ‘love-fest’ Hunts are going strong but you only have a few days left for many of them. So let’s jump in to the 0L  Add Some Red Hunt from Fi’s Hunts.

I was able to make this nifty outfit almost exclusively from the Hunt prizes! First is the  blouse from Get Frocked. I love the peplum hem and the soft velvet look of the fabric. The fact that it’s covered in cute little hearts is just frosting on the cake!

Delicious Reds

There is some truly lovely jewelry in this Hunt and I had a hard time choosing one to show. But I think the Harlequin Set from Exquisite Jewellery is the perfect fit for the look I’m going for. You get the earrings and the necklace in the prize with commands to turn the ‘bling’ on and off. The necklace actually beats like a heart when you first put it on!

Don’t you love the glasses? I haven’t taken them off since I opened the prize box! These are the Red Tartan Glasses from The Vintage Touch.  Vintage Touch is doing some awesome work and I love seeing their name on a Hunt.  (And don’t forget to check out their new Gift at the FabFree Headquarters too)

Last but not least are the Inez Booties from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. As always, Lindys has put out a fantastic pair of shoes for this Hunt. I love the metal details and that rich crimson color.

The Add Some Red Hunt runs until Feb. 28 so you still have some time to add that pop of color to your SL closet!

A little Winter Fantasy

Hello, My Dears! The count down to the new year is on but there’s plenty of time for another Hunt. I picked the Winter Fantasy Hunt from Melnaka Events. Their moto is “where the fun in SL begins” and they certainly have lived up to that with the huge  0L Hunt. There are ninety six stops so there’s sure to be something for just about everyone. One of the nifty things about a large hunt is the variety of prizes you can find. My first look is a sweet modern casual.

winterfantasy1_001

Perfect for crisp days, this gray sweater and snowflake scarf are the female prize from Ambient. And the men’s prize is just as nice. I paired it with Lindy’s super cute boots. I truly love Lindy’s boots and shoes and these are no exception to the rule. Beautifully made, they are sure to be favorites.

winterfantasy2_002

Rounding out this look is Nail Me’s Hunt prize (Pru showed us here!). All 4 nail designs are vibrant blue and white perfect for winter. Aren’t the snowflakes just adorable?

 

winterfantasy2_001

 

Next up is C&N’s stunning gown: Morticia.  I was so impressed with how elegant and regal it looks. The gold details make it. I included a picture of the back so you can see that the precision and attention to details are complete.

winterfantasy5_001

winterfantasy6_001

Lastly, Feyline has given us complete outfit that is the very definition of ‘winter fantasy’.  The prize includes all the clothing, tattoos, flowers for your hair, a necklace, the shimmery over skirt and the wings! There are sandals as well but I like the bare foot look too. And, yes, there’s a men’s version in the prize.

Who is that Masked Woman?

Mystery, romance and fancy costumes, dancing till midnight: the Masquerade has it all.

MAS 1_001

I tried Ink Hunt’s Welcome to the Masquerade Hunt this week. This is a 1L hunt with 22 planned stops for a nice relaxed Hunt pace.

This piece is Brocade Tiger’s Gold Brocade Tux for ladies. I always love something a bit unusual for formal wear. This gift also comes with a matching men’s Tux. The Tux jacket is a separate piece so it could be combined with other outfits making it very versatile.  My classic black pumps are from Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes and are their Peace on Earth Hunt Prize. ( Thanks for letting me steal them, Love ;) )

Lastly, my delicate face mask is from Baci Village. Now I just need to find a handsome stranger to dance with.

Lindy Shoes @ The Cart Sale; or, E.T. is eyeing up my boots!

Ahhh shoes…have I mentioned lately how much I love shoes here in SL? LOL. By the looks of that UFO just behind in the picture below, I think shoes love extends out into the stars! Lucky for me, and you, and the extraterrestrials, the Lindy Shoes Cart at The Wash Cart Sale, has loads to choose from, and all for only L$10 each!

lindyshoes1

Lindy Shoes has a great selection of SLink shoes, as well as shoes for natural SL AV feet, so everyone wins, and her cart is no different with great selections for both options. I had a hard time choosing which to show you…my job is so tough! I settled on the girly biker-esque Piper boots, and the classic, lovely coloured, Zoe heels for SLink mid feet.

lindyshoes3

I just love the studs on the Piper boots. The gold accent of the metal against the gorgeous purple colour…makes me feel tough…and pretty, all at the same time :)

lindyshoes4

Every girl needs a pair of classic heels, and why not get them in a beautiful aqua colour like the Zoe heels? Don’t be afraid to mix colours, I can totally tell myself that aqua is a neutral colour and wear these with anything.

lindyshoes5

Here’s a shot of the cart, as you can see…soooo many shoes!!

lindyshoes2

I really felt that the Piper boots were yelling at me to put on a leather jacket, who am I to argue with shoes? Lucky for me, I found a really nice mesh jacket on the Marketplace, for free! The Deelish Leather Studded Jacket is a wearable, branded demo/gift. While I did not include a picture of the back in this post, the Deelish logo is on the back, and I think it’s really cute. If you want to see, check it out HERE, and hey…for free, just buy it! You can’t go wrong with a black leather jacket.

OK lovelies, I have to run, but you know I will be back. Until then, TTFN *waves*

Zombies make lovely music to dance to!

If you all can remember, I have ended up in a few spots with zombies, with my first zombie shoot taking place in Dusty Heights (HERE is the link to that post). Would you believe, there is an absolutely gorgeous ballroom, right smack dab in the middle of that place? So of course, when I saw the kinds of gifts Shamic and I were collecting from The Silver Platter Hunt, quite a few formal wear outfits for him and her, well…I thought what better way to initiate Shamic into FabFree blog posts, than to drag him there. We danced to the music of zombie groans and doors being rattled, it was awesome!

ballroom1

Our whole foray into the Silver Platter Hunt, which prompted me to head to a ballroom, started with the lovely Pru sending me a link to the hunt’s blog gift preview page, telling me that there was a nice male skin available at Style by Kira. She was right, of course, and lucky for me, there was a really lovely female skin available for the hunt as well. I am wearing the Style by Kira – Janelle Skin SPH, and Shamic has on the Style by Kira – Anton Skin SPH. Both of these skins will cost you a whole L$1 each. Or, and this is one of the neat features of this hunt, if you do not want to take the time to root out the hunt gifts, all you need to do is find the hunt sign at the store, and the hunt gifts are available there for you without having to search, the catch, these one’s are L$25. So..there are 2 sets of the same gifts, the L$25 ones, are right beside the hunt sign, and the L$1 ones, are hidden somewhere in the store, and will take a little time to find, the choice is up to you. Either way, these skins are well worth the extra time or extra money.

ballroom3

Our formal wear is from Wicked Sin Creations, and they compliment each other so nicely.  I have on the ^WSC^ Opulent *Red/Black* {Mesh} Gown, and Shamic is wearing the ^WSC^ Tuxedo *Red Waist Band* {Mesh}. Both outfits are mesh, with the standard sizes available. Like the skin gifts, you can choose to search for the hunt gift (both male and female gifts are in one object) and only pay L$1, or go to the hunt sign and pay L$25. While there are hints on the hunt’s blog site, the hint for this item is wrong, so I will give you my own hint “Hey Sweet Sugar, Be Mine!”. I just love the matching red colour of my dress and Shamic’s cumberbund, and we look so elegant together :)

ballroom2

The Silver Platter Hunt runs until September 15th, and with a large majority of the stores having either a unisex gift, or both a male and female gift, it’s a great hunt to do together with your honey, or just your male alt…like me :P LOL. I better not let Shamic hear me call him just my male alt, I might hurt his feelings.

OK lovelies, that is it for me, but you all know that I will be back, maybe even show a few other gifts from this hunt. Until then though…TTFN!

Time to kick those shoes off, but they are such nice shoes…oh the dilemma!

Phew…what a week it has been for me!  Even with as much fun as I have had doing the Do the Dot Hunt, tonight, all I wanted to do is just sit down with my shoes off, in a comfy chair. Lucky for me, this hunt has the right gifts for me to do just that :) LOL

seateddot1

I may as well start off with the comfy chair. {Sickly SWEET} is one of the several non-apparel stores participating in the Do the Dot Hunt, and I really like the simplicity of the design of the Helena Chair with the fun pattern of the ever-present theme of this hunt, dots :) The chair comes with 6 animations built-in, and depending on your body shape, they all can work well for any gender. Plus, there is an adjust button in the menu as well, so even if you find that you are sunk into the pillow, or hovering off to the left, you can adjust yourself to your heart’s content and fit perfectly. Remember, the gifts on this hunt are free, and you are looking for a ball that is white with black polka dots.

seateddot3

As much as I want to take my shoes off, as most people do at the end of a long day, I had troubles taking off these lovely shoes, Meshell Black-White, that are the hunt gift from Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes. Now, all you non-SLink feet loving gals out there, and I know there are many of you that just don’t vibe with mesh feet for whatever reason, these shoes are meant for the standard SL avatar feet! I’m just wearing my feet in the pics because I love the nail polish I have on my toes which is only for SLink feet, what can I say, I’m addicted :P That does not mean that I don’t still appreciate a great standard foot shoe, and with the classic black and white polka dot pattern, these babies are awesome.

seateddot4

Speaking of classic, the hunt gift from Sky is a total classic, with its cute little peplum skirt. This sweet dress is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes, and it is so easy to accessorize, it just lends itself to any colour and style of jewelry.

seateddot2

Lucky for me, there is a great jewelry gift from Freya’s Finest  for the hunt, a texture change choker and earrings, of which you can’t see the earrings through my hair. Every bit of these pieces is texture change. You can use the provided HUD to change the texture of the metal as well as the ring of jewels in the middle, but if you want to change the texture of the ribbon, you just need to click on it and a menu will pop-up, you can also change the metal and jewels texture through the menu as well. The earrings match the jeweled ring on the choker perfectly. The choker has mod ability, so you can make it fit perfectly.

Alright, I think my bed is now calling me, I’ve lounged around too much to want to do anything more tonight :P Oh, and since I have yet to mention this in my other posts about this hunt, I’ll tell you now; many of the stores have colourful polka-dot pathways showing you the area their gift is hidden in, so really, even if this is a first time hunt for you, it is a pretty hunter friendly one, especially when combined with the hints given HERE.

So, goodnight for now, I still have 1 or 2 more things I want to show you from this hunt, so until then, TTFN! *waves a shoe at you*

It’s the Little Things I Love

Hello Fabbies! Sometimes it’s the little things I love.  “It’s the little things that count, hundreds of them.” (Cliff Shaw). To me it’s all the little things I collect from around Second Life that make me happy. The fact that most of them cost little to no money makes me even happier. Today I’d like to show you a few little things I’ve found.

I had such fun putting this outfit together! It all started off with a trip to B!asta for a $10L find in the Retirement Marathon that changes quite often. I love the frilly blouse that comes with the outfit and the colors are appealing to me. The hot pants lend a saucy touch. This really cute curly hair style comes from Alli&Ali. Every month they host a sale with a good number of hair styles in boxes of three color shades to be found for $99L each. I had to chuckle when my sissy told me, “You look different every time I log in!”. I just enjoy changing up my look after all these years in SL.

FF Post 7-7-14 WL Places Las Legunas_001

I found the perfect nails to match the colors in the blouse at Allusions for only $10l. This pack of 3 colors is called Meteorite. Allusions has cosmetics, large sets of nail polishes, clothing, jewelry and even a few pieces of furniture all at very reasonable prices. There are also a few free and other $10L items that can be found in the store. There are items on the 1st & 2nd floors. Don’t think that just because the room to the right has only a few items out that the store doesn’t have more. Just travel up the stairs and you will find more.

7-7-14 Rumbera & Allusion nails_001

Lindy Retro & Modern Couture is having a yard sale offering shoes for SLink feet with prices ranging from $98L – $140L. The sale ends on July 30th so hurry and grab some deals. Lindy is also very generous with SLF&O gifts. These smart, sexy heels come from the yard sale and I paid $133L for them. The style is called Falyn and this color is “Nude”. You can wear them with just about any color.

I Love Lemongrass!

When I hear the word lemongrass I think of delicious Thai food. The gorgeous gown from Snowpaws is truly delicious. The details such as the textures, skirt, and gold chains/buttons are amazing. I was anxious to share this beautiful gown with you. The fact that I won this dress free in a Midnight Mania Board is even more fab!

I decided to complement the look with my favorite hair style from Alli&Ali Designs. The style is called Sonja and the color is cinnamon. I’m so excited that I now have it in 2 colors. It also cost me nothing more than a tap on a Midnight Mania Board aka free.

Snowpaws Mei LemonGrass Gown 7-2-14_001

Below is a closeup of the hair (mentioned above) and jewelry I paired with this outfit. These earrings are are from Two Sisters Treasures and cost only $10L. TST has a large selection of items on sale for this price every month in addition to their other sensational jewelry creations. The bracelets were made by .aisling. and have been in my possession for a very long time. (Hey I’m old in SL!)

Close up Snowpaws Mei LemonGrass Gown 7-2-14_001

I showed these classic patent peeps in my last post but wanted to show them off again. partly because I love them; they are truly classic and can be paired with any number of dresses, gowns, or outfits. I also wanted to show them again to correct an error I made about the price. The price for the black patent peeps are $79L. If you would like to get the color change hud the cost is now $499. You can get them at Lindy Modern Retro & Modern Shoes. Psst – Lindy is also having a yard sale with shoes for SLink feet at the same location.

Waiting for my date….

I’m all dressed up with nowhere to go, yet! I’m sure my date is on his way. Wait! I must check my calendar to see if my date is really tonight. I think I’ll just stand here in this beautiful garden setting and wait to see what happens so this will be a quickie post.

Well anyway, I’ve got on this great dress designed by Rowena Springflower. It’s named Kathy and comes with a color change HUD so you can choose the color depending on your mood. I had a lucky night and won it in a Midnight Mania Board! Rowena always designs beautiful outfits, gives out a lot of gifts and prizes, and her prices are very reasonable. And she’s an absolute doll! I paired this free clutch from MoiMoi and cute  heels from Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes.
