The casual shirt I’m sporting is from ZFG for Him. It may seem like a simple gift but the build is really solid. The details are perfect even zoomed in. You also get a HUD to pick one of six tie dye colors and patterns. Just a little hunting and it’s yours.

Mix and Match

My next stop on the All the Stuff Hunt was Mishmash Fusion. This is one designer that always provides good “stuff” and this time is no different. Mishmash Fusion has actually put out a complete set of jeans and a tee shirt for us. I picked the jeans to show for two reasons… one, I really like the tie dye shirt and two… anyone can do jeans. Right? Welll, no. Jeans are one of those things you don’t notice unless it’s bad. These jeans from Mishmash Fusion are some of the best on the Grid. The color is right and the details are solid. These are absolutely staying in my closet.

I’d been dreaming of a seaside escape for weeks and Blue and I finally took a moment away from all the hustle and bustle of the real world and spent an entire day enjoying the sun, surf, and sand. For some extra fun, surf lessons. Blue took to the waves like a duck to water, while I was a little less certain! Either way, we still had an amazing time out at Kanaloa Surf Beach.

Before heading to the beach we picked up some new swimwear from MishMash Fusion. They have a set of his and hers swimsuits as their Surf into Summer Hunt prize. We also grabbed this surfboard with the tandem pose from Something New. It’s one of 2 the two poses included in the Surf into Summer Hunt prize at Something New. The Surf into Summer Hunt is running now through June 21st, and the prizes are just 2 lindens. Mahalo everyone for being here, and happy hunting!

Konnichiwa

Konnichiwa Fab Free! I have to say I’ve been having so much fun with the Asian theme of the Medieval Fantasy Hunt. The prizes have given me lots of inspiration. I’m also enjoying the mix of traditional themes with modern style. For today’s post I’m wearing the female MFH prize at Mishmash Fusion. It’s a short modern dress with a bit of Japanese flair to the cut and fabric. There’s a male prize also, which you can check out in the vendor photo below. The MFH is a free hunt, so this pretty prize won’t cost anything. All you have to do is find it!

The Siren’s Song

The Siren's Song

Most of the time when you think of sirens singing, it’s not necessarily a good thing. You know… rocks, ship wrecks, sailors drowning.

Mishmash Fusion is certainly one of those good things… two good things, in fact, one for us ladies and one for the guys as well!

Dark Siren

First up is the ladies prize for the Siren’s Song Hunt from Mishmash Fusion. This is the “Dark Siren” swimsuit and it will only cost you a little hunting. Yep, it’s a free prize! The suit is beautifully textured and each piece is separate for easy fitting.

The Ringmaster & His Apprentice


The Ringmaster and his Apprentice

Hello Fab Free, step right up! The Ringmaster and his lovely apprentice welcome you to the circus, or more accurately, the blog! You guessed it, I’ve teamed up with that man of mine again to bring you some fabulous finds. This time we did a bit of the Jester’s Revenge Hunt and picked up the male and female hunt prizes at Mishmash. The Jester’s Revenge Hunt is a free hunt, and it lasts until April 30th.

Though definitely not your typical everyday wear, I thought these free matching outfits by Mishmash were a lot of fun. They would be great for roleplay, or themed parties. Each of the outfits is a separate prize. You’ll be hunting a little gold nugget. Both outfits come in several sizes. The men’s suit also includes an alpha layer.

Men’s Sizes Included: Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink Male, TMP, Standard Mesh (xs-XL)

Women’s Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

M Hint – Zilla has a joke for you

F Hint – Perhaps I can give you a hand

P.S. Make sure you check out Blue’s credits for some freebie finds for the guys!

Here are the details!

Dance With Me?

Dance With Me

Hello Fabulouses!  Stan and I teamed up to do some hunting along the Candy Cane 10 Hunt trail and found a really cute matchy-matchy prize over at MishMash Fusion.  We just had to celebrate by teleporting off to the Let it Snow sim for a romantic dance.  I really love the red candy cane stripes on both my dress and Stan’s vest.  They are just so bright and cheerful!  If you are looking for a coordinated outfit to wear with your significant other to a holiday party, this might be just up your alley!

On Her:  The Sweetest Frock

My Rocketpop Dress offers a full skirt for elegant swirls on the dance floor as well as halter style neck straps that are reminiscent of holiday ribbons.  Cherry colored buttons, a red sash around the waist and a red and white hemline complete the look.  The package includes versions for mesh avatars as well as sizes for classic avatars, so you’re sure to find the perfect fit for you.  Since all you need to invest to pick up this party frock is a bit of time searching and two little Linden dollars, you’ll look like you spent a bundle, but will have plenty left in the coffers for all your holiday shopping.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBody Classic and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

On Him:  A Dapper Suit

Stan’s Etienne Suit features a red shirt, white tie, striped vest and an elegant white color scheme.  The touches of crimson provide the perfect coordination with the Rocketpop dress without looking too overdone.  All the pieces are worn at once, so there is no fussing around trying to get the different elements to fit together.  With one click, you’ll be ready to sweep her off her feet.  Just like Kat’s prize, the package includes versions for Classic as well as a variety of mesh body styles, all for just two Linden dollars (and a bit of searching time).

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (no alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

We’re off to see what else we can discover as we continue down the hunt path.  The event lasts until December 25th and features stops at a variety of stores.  The pupster is hoping maybe there will be a box of Ripley snacks hidden somewhere along the way.  Luckily, I have a freshly baked batch waiting at home.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

I’ll Meet You at Low Tide

Boho Beach

Happy Almost-Friday, Fabulouses!  I’m looking forward to a couple of days off when I will have more time to check out all of the amazing bargains over at the Cart Sale currently taking place at The Wash.  I popped in quickly on opening day to take a peek around, and scooped up this lovely teal and purple maxi dress.  It has been a crazy busy work week for me in RL, but when it’s done, Ripley and I are going to enjoy some more budget friendly retail therapy at The Wash.

Boho Beauty

At the Mishmash Fusion cart, my eyes were immediately drawn to the Low Tide Beach Dress.  With a layered, ankle length skirt covered with botanical prints, and a coordinating teal off-the-shoulder bodice, this frock features a free spirited Boho vibe that is perfect for lazy end of summer days.  The combination of colors is just so pretty!  One of the best parts of shopping at The Wash is discovering a number of gorgeous “must haves” for my inventory, but not having to worry that I will break the bank.  This super sweet summer dress came with an equally sweet price tag – just 10 little Linden dollars, which leaves plenty in the coffers for a more leisurely shopping spree over the weekend.  I can hardly wait!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Sprinkling of Gold Dust

Gold Dust

Hello Fabulous Readers!  While checking out the Dumpster Diving Hunt with Ripley, I picked up a really cute mini dress perfect for a date night, and happened to notice there was a male prize in the shop as well.  So, I woke Stan up from his early evening nap, and led him over to Mishmash Fusion.  It’s hard to believe we found such classy clothes dumpster diving, isn’t it?

Hers

I am modeling the strappy Starseed Mini Dress in the color Star Dust.  This little number will hug your curves, but has a skirt with enough fullness to make moving around a snap.  There is a “v” shaped notch in the hemline which adds visual interest.  I really, really like the spattering of golden glitter on the outside edges of the frock!  In the back, the top of the dress sits just below your shoulder blades.  Best of all, items in the Dumpster Diving Hunt are completely free, so all it cost was a bit of time searching around.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

His

Stan is sporting the coordinating Etienne Suit (also free from Mishmash Fusion).  It features a black jacket, a button down shirt complete with a black tie, creased trousers, and a stardust sprinkled vest, which complements my dress beautifully.  The outfit is an all-in-one, so you can’t wear the individual components separately, but I think Stan looks quite dashing!  Versions for classic avatars as well as popular mesh bodies are tucked inside the package, so there’s something for everyone in here.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

We are off to see what else we can uncover in the Dumpster Diving Hunt.  Since it runs until August 31st, we still have plenty of time.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

I Want It Painted Black

Let Your Light Shine

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I dusted off his tracking harness over the weekend, and set to work on the trail of the Paint It Black Hunt.  The prizes in this hunt cost just 5L each, and are inspired by The Rolling Stones, Rock N Roll, Grunge, Metal, Alt Music, Goth Music, and Rockabilly.  Since the hunt runs through February 28th, you still have plenty of time to track down some prizes for yourself.

A Nocturnal Black Rose

My adorable strapless mini dress from MishMash Fusion took us a *long* time to locate, but it sure was worth the investment of time and the 5L price tag.  With a richly textured fabric, ruffled skirt, and figure hugging fit, this frock is a hot little number!  I love the way it leaves your shoulders bare and allows a generous glimpse of your legs.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Standard Mesh in one size (includes alpha layer)
  • eBody Classic and Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

I’m in the Mood 

Our second stop on the hunt path was The Little Bat where we quickly located the unisex Mood Necklace.  When I was in school, mood jewelry was *the* item all the girls wore, and I have to admit, I still find the changing tint of the gemstones fascinating.  The circular pendant of this necklace only alters when you adjust the hue using the included 14 texture HUD.  I opted for a monochromatic color scheme for my ensemble tonight, so I kept the original black tone, but could have easily chosen an alternate shade.  For just 5L and the small amount of time spent searching, I came away with a versatile piece of jewelry that will coordinate with a variety of outfits.

New Locks

My up-swept pony hairstyle is the latest free group gift for members of the FABIA Mesh Hair store.  The Valentines style comes with a fat pack of colors including black and white, browns, blonde, red, and “unnatural” HUDs.  It features wispy side bangs that frame your face beautifully.  To pick up this item, you must be a member of the FABIA Mesh Hair group, which has a 100L join fee, but there are past group gifts still available, so you can get several new haircut styles for the fee.

The long weekend passed by so quickly in RL.  After the three days off, my pantry is sorted, completely organized in bins, and labeled.  I sure hope I can keep it that way!  If only my SL inventory was as organized.  Thank goodness for the search feature, otherwise I might never find things in there! Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!
