Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!

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.

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!
