“Fitting In”

Fitting In

I recently created a new avatar with Maitreya Lara as the mesh body. It took me a lot of time to get the shape right. I was finding that a lot of stuff wasn’t fitting me anymore. Isn’t it crazy how much bodies are changing in SL? The minute I buy the newest one and get used to it, another one comes along… Hopefully, I still kept my curves with this new look. Let me know what you think of the end result! Now that I’m “fitting in” I am hoping to show you some cute outfits and products on the blog that I just couldn’t showcase before… although I would not be surprised if I do go back to my beloved Belleza eventually. I just think it’s so funny how we get emotionally attached to our virtual bodies and heads! I know I do, anyways.

Ooooo, Leg Chains!

A freebie I’ve been dying to show you for some time are these free leg chains from Mossu. You will find this gift lying on the floor under the “Harmony Dress Fatpack” vendor for free for all to grab. No group is required for this one. They’re sexy as heck! The chains include a colour texture change hud that allows you to customize the colours of the metals and the gems. It’s cute little things like this that I’ve been waiting to show you with a body that fits just right.

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Legacy Female

Fitting In II

Latex Look

You may remember that I recently blogged [QE Designs]’ recent offerings on the Kink in Pink Hunt. I couldn’t fit into the full outfit before. Now I can, so I decided to snap a pic with the panties, top, and skirt. Each prize only costs 25L on the hunt, so 75L for this full outfit! Each piece includes a hud of pastel latex colours. The Kink in Pink Hunt is running until June 30th, and you can read all the details about it in my post here.

Sizes Included (top, skirt & panties)

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Legacy Female
  • eBODY Reborn
  • Kupra

Enjoy, FabFree!

Wanna Visit the Darkside With Me?

Telsiope Christallia edited 6-20-2022 _001

Bet you’ve never seen this darker side of me. Well maybe a little bit. Years ago in my early SL days I decided to delve into the leather scene in SL. Today I tripped back into the mode for this post and I had a blast doing it!

Pretty Sexy Thang

My outfit was a surprise from Telsiope’s Couture. It inspired me to do this post. The Cristallia leather outfit consists of the bodysuit, shrug, and boots. It’s a near perfect fit for the Maitreya Lara body; I only had to alpha the arms and armpits.  I love the way the bodysuit hugs my curves while covering up my bits. You can also wear this as a swimsuit. In fact, there is a blue version of the bodysuit available for $10L in the vendor.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya

By the way, Telsiope’s Couture has a huge sale going on until June 30th! Go check it out. Caroline featured the shop in her post here.

Peace & Love, 

Cre

Let Your Fingers Do the Walking

Sl19B Son!a Edge Petra Dress (1)

Going through the SL19B sims reminds of me of an old commercial for the Yellow pages phonebook. In the early 1960s an artist came up with the now famous slogan – “Let your fingers do the walking through the Yellow Pages” for the New England Telephone which was eventually bought out by AT&T. (btw, it’s an American thing as far as I know).

Okay, where was I going with this bit of trivia?? Oh yeah! Walking through SL19B is like walking through the yellow pages. I don’t know how your avatar moves but mine moves with me using 2 fingers to “walk”. Quit blathering and get on with it Cre!

Lovely Sparkles

Don’t you love it when you pick up free gifts, open them and find a few treasures? I was pleasantly surprised when I unpacked the SL19B gift from Son!a Edge. What a beautiful, well-crafted dress! The details and textures knocked me out of my socks. Petra comes in this pleasing shade accented with shiny sequins and gorgeous flowers.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya Perky & Isis Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Legacy & Perky

Peau Neuve (aka New Skin)

Thanks to the WoW non-group Lucky Boards I’m sporting a new skin. When a “C” popped up on one of the boards I slapped it and got 2 shades of the Sugar BOM skin. I’m wearing the bronze version today. When you arrive in the gifts room you’ll also find several free gifts as well as gifts for FabFree and various other groups. There are also non-group lucky, mini-mania, & midnight mania boards.

Have a most splendid week Fabbies!

Marvelously Fab in Paris

Seven $55 Thursday Alena Ourfit_001 (1)

I’m feeling special today. How about you? I think we’ve been watching way too many episodes of Project Runway at home. Today’s outfit kind of reminds me of some of the fashion creations the contestants design and fabricate.  The challenges on the show can run from making an elegant gown in luxurious fabric to using EMS and firefighter supplies for an avant-garde look (think bandages, fire hoses, etc).

In honor of my feeling special, sexy, and so fashionable I visited Paris, one of the world’s fashion capitals. I love all of what I’m wearing from the top of my head down to my toes. Where is that runway? I feel like being in a fashion show.

Ooh La La

I subscribe to a lot of stores and groups. This morning I received a notecard about Fifty5 Thursday deals at Seven. Deciding I loved this look off to the shop I went. Alena comes as a top and mini skirt. Details give it an edgy look. There are a number of colors to choose from available at the store ($55L per color).

Sizes

  • Belleza, Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • SLink HG & Physique

Edgier (?)

SL19B eyes with hud 6-18-2022_001 (1)

Then another notecard arrived from Sintiklia! The store participates in the Happy Weekend Sale on a fairly regular basis. One of today’s offerings is this funky updo, Octavia. It’s a high ponytail pulled to the front and bangs hanging in front. Included in each color pack is a style hud. It was just what I needed to complete this look.

Look deeply into my eyes . . . . Named “Rainstorm Eyes” they’re a lovely SL19B gift from theMars. You get 6 shades of bom eyes along with huds for Catwa, Catwa HDPro, Lelutka Evo, and Genus. The huds work with the eyes for each of the heads. How cool is that?

SHOES!

Finishing off my look is the gorgeous Lilly shoes, one of many group gifts at StephaneL. The group join fee is $15L. The current gift is a $500L gift card. I’m not very good at math but even I can see that’s a pretty good deal. You’ll also find a couple of walls of older group gifts.

Black is the New Orange

Fatal Fashion June GG

One of my favorite SL activities is shopping! It has been for a very long time. I love sales and events that lead me to shops I’ve never before visited. One of my latest discoveries was Fatal Fashion. I popped over a couple of weeks ago to pick up a weekend sale item. I saw the group gift wall there and thought the gifts looked pretty nice. The latest group gift loudly called my name. The $0L group join fee sealed the deal for me!

Black can be so Seductive

Dressing in black can be for mourning but personally I prefer it as a prelude to a dramatic look. (p.s. I prefer brighter colors for mourning). The latest group gift from Fatal Fashion (Free/Group is free to join) is this sexy top and skirt along with the boots and 2 bracelets in black and gold. It’s a curve hugging fit with nice detailing in lace & cut outs on the top. As you can see in the picture the boots are open toe & laced up the front. You will be noticed in this outfit so be prepared to maybe get a few IMs from guys!

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink HG & Physique

There ya have it dear readers. You never know what you’ll find that tickles your fancy!

Run If You Want It

6-12-22 $35L Sun Dori Papillion Boutique

Who never, ever had a favorite jean jacket? I still have mine sitting in a closet with all of the pins I collected during trips here and there. The odds are that it will never, ever fit again but I cant let go of it. It brings back lots of happy memories. I have bought or been gifted quite a few jackets over the years and they’ve all been quite nice. Today I found what might possibly be my new favorite on sale!

One in a Million, er, Melon?

Oh, the cuteness! Not only will this jacket keep you warm on cool days and nights. Everyone can see how special you really are. You all know how I love the $35L Sunday sales. The Summer Autumn Jacket offering at Dore Papillion Boutique does all of the above. If the longer cut and rolled up sleeves don’t look comfy enough then the soft denim may convince you. The “cherry on top” is the artwork on the back proclaiming you as “One in a Melon”. This jacket is sized only for Maitreya.

Note: The $35L sale ends at Midnight SLT.

Ta-ta for now folks!

Dressed for Brunch

Brillancia Top & skirt $30L Sun 6/5/22

A Sunday brunch with friends is always a pleasure. We went to Brennan’s Restaurant on Royal  Street in the Vieux Carré. Mmm, love those mimosas and Bananas Foster, a delicious conconction of bananas, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, rum, banana liqueur and vanilla ice cream flamed at your table. After all that yumminess I had to hail a cab so I could get home and fall into a food coma.

Stuffed

Dining at a world famous restaurant is an occasion to dress to the nines! Luckily I was able to nab this sophisticated ensemble, Olivia, from Brillancia for a total of $60L (the top & skirt are separates priced at $30L each). I’m wearing the chocolate color but there are a number of colors to choose from at the store. It fits my Maitreya body like a glove!
Note: This is the $30L Saturday offering. It’s still available as of this posting.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Kupra, Kups
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite

Hope your week is filled with goodness & yummy things!
