You Had Me At Pink

Pretty in Pink
Hello Fabulouses!  Today, Ripley and I wandered the grid in search of some autumn colors, and came across this lovely patch of wildflowers on the Salt Water sim.  Although they weren’t the fall foliage we were seeking, they coordinated beautifully with my new dress, so I just had to snap a photo.

Pretty in Pink

Speaking of my frock, this lovely mini is a free gift for members of the Mesh Body Friends group from Hilly Haalan.  In a deep rose hue, this sleeveless little number features sexy lacing in the front and the back.  I love the soft shimmer of the fabric and the way the skirt flares slightly to allow freedom of movement.  This dress is so sweet and feminine!  It is designed specifically for mesh avatars, and fit my Maitreya Lara body beautifully.  Best of all, since the Mesh Body Friends group has no join fee, I was able to scoop up the Estela dress completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP

I don’t know about you, but I sure am glad tomorrow is Friday!  This has been a long, busy week for me in RL, and I am looking forward to some relaxation and lazy moments this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hunting For My Secret Santa

Robbie Roo's Whatchamagoos - Winter Blues Men's Warmups

Shopping for the unknown…

Have you ever gotten involved in one of those Secret Santa gift exchanges at work? You get a name of someone you barely know and are expected to get fun and cheesy gifts for very little money. I found some not-so-cheesy gifts on The Feel My Sack Hunt. While MOST of the gifts on this hunt are mature in nature, I found a few that are great for anyone. All the hunt gifts are $1L each. I’m wrapping my presents in the Winter Blues Men’s Warmups from Robbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos .

And Presents Under the Tree…

I also found some things on the hunt to accessorize with this holiday season. The Winter’s Rest Bench from Chaotic Creative has 9 positions for pondering which package to shake next. I also found the Deluxe Evergreen Gold and Green Christmas Tree by Mesh Agency.  This low land impact tree includes all the presents underneath.

Candy is Not Just for Kids…

On my wanders, I also found the Garmisch Sweater at Horr Menswear. This hunt gift is part of the Candy Cane Hunt 8 and can be grabbed for just $2L.  Ok, it’s back to wrapping presents. I wonder if they will like this dusty plant?  🙂

Etched in Style

Laced in Style
Hello Fabulouses! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  In real life, I try to stay *far* away from malls and shopping on Black Friday, and the next couple of days afterwards.  It seems like whenever I think I’ve found a parking spot, it turns out to be a small car!  In SL, it’s a different story – no worries about parking here!  With a day off from work, Ripley and I traveled around, scoping out another Fabulous Find to share with our wonderful readers.

Gone Camping

Over at Etchaflesh, I had no trouble finding a parking spot.  In fact, I brought my trusty Kindle, along with the pupster’s favorite bone, and we settled into one of eight cozy camping chairs placed on the back wall of the store.  After just 30 minutes of “parking,” I happily welcomed this sassy, sleeveless parka to the fold for free.  It features a crop top, and a long vest that is accented with several jazzy buttons, stars, and stripes.  A color-change HUD allows you to alter the texture of the vest (outer and inner lining), crop top, and the decorative buttons, stars, and stripes individually, so you can create a variety of looks.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Physique, and Venus
  • Standard-sized mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Texture HUD

I’ve Got My Sassy Pants on Today

The trendy style of my parka called for slacks with attitude, and I located the perfect trousers – Pencil Pants for Maitreya by Beck.  These black, laced, leather pants provided just the look I was striving for.  I love the detail of the tied lacing.  Created exclusively for the Maitreya Lara mesh body, Mie Beck offers them for sale in her Marketplace shop for only 50L.  Mie states on her profile that her goal is to make a place where all people can afford to wear 100% mesh outfits.  These pants are not only budget-friendly, but stylish to boot!

From Head to Toe

The one Black Friday sale that Rip and I dared to venture to was at Truth Hair (Love told us about this super-saver event in her post [HERE]).  I scooped up the versatile Fenella hair for only 75L.  Able to be worn with and without the fedora, this chic ‘do features long, flowing locks, and a color-change HUD for the hat.  We had a hard time wading our way through the crowd in the lobby of the Truth store, but our persistence really paid off in the end.  I was able to scoop up several hairstyles at bargain prices.  Score for team Ripley!

After slipping on Lewis studded, flat sneakers from the Mesh Agency, Rip and I dusted off the bike, and pedaled over to the Gates of Melancholy sim where we worked off some of those Thanksgiving dinner calories by exploring along the beach.

I hope you enjoyed the fun, casual Fabulous Find we put together for you today.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping camping!

Hey, Beautiful One, Keep Cozy and Comfortable

Aqua 3

Hello Fabulous Readers! Ripley and I are taking a break from chasing zombies at Woodbury Falls to bring you a special edition blog post featuring one of the newest Fabulously Free in SL group gifts.  I think you’ll really like this one!

It’s All About Sweater Weather

With brisk fall days upon us, I’m finding the need for warmer clothes to ward off the chill.  This free Bea Off Shoulder Sweater from The Beautiful Ones will keep me warm in style.  The aqua knit garment wraps my avi in comfort, and offers a sexy peek at one shoulder.  In addition to Maitreya and Slink versions for mesh bodies, the gift also includes classic avatar sizes in XS, S, M, L and XL in fit mesh.  I like the detailing on the knit cuffs and waistline… no chilly breezes will sneak past them, so I’m sure to stay cozy and comfortable.  To add this cute sweater to your wardrobe, all you have to do is join the Fabulously Free in SL group (it’s completely free!) then teleport over to The Beautiful Ones, and tap the board… easy peasy!  If you haven’t checked out all the wonderful gifts available to Fabulously Free in SL group members, you can see them here.

Trendy, Chic Choker

Since Rip and I had an exciting afternoon of zombie chasing planned, I decided to keep my look casual.  This simple, tattoo-style choker from Fakess on The Marketplace proved to be the perfect accessory, and it was only 1L.  With multiple layers included in the package, such as a tattoo and undershirt layers for classic avatars, and mesh body appliers for Omega, Slink Physique and TMP, this accessory is sure to be useful to all.

Relay…….What?!?

Although I am using the Maitreya Lara mesh body, I was able to utilize the Omega applier for the choker by using the HUD from Omega Solution’s System Relay Kit for Maitreya.  At 99L, it is priced a bit over our 75L limit for Fab Free, but I find this HUD to be an extremely useful tool to have tucked away in my inventory.  It allows me to wear items that only come with Omega appliers on my Maitreya mesh body, and it opens up so many options for expanding my SL wardrobe.  If you have a Maitreya body, it’s worth checking out.

Aqua 2

Ready to Run!

I slipped on these snug-fit, figure-sculpting Katelyn pants from Mette’s, and Lewis Studded Flat Sneakers from the Mesh Agency, then teleported (somewhat nervously) to the Woodbury Falls Sim.  Ripley has confidently assured me that he will keep me safe from harm.  I do have to say, though, that these zombies are pretty creepy, and emanate frightening sounds, so I’ve been keeping my guard up… This spooky sim is not for the faint of heart.  Yikes!  I think I hear the shuffling footsteps and moaning of one of those creatures fast approaching now, so I’d better end this post.  Until next time, happy shopping!
