Searching for a Beautiful Heart

In My Heart

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!  Have you heard about the hunt going on over at the Justice store?  Ripley caught wind of it, and we decided to check it out.  There are 12 hearts hidden around the store priced at just zero linden dollars each.  The pupster and I haven’t yet located all of the hunt items, but the top I am wearing in my photo today is my favorite prize so far!

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The Opal Tank is a cute little number which features super thin spaghetti straps, a satiny sheen and a belt to emphasize your waistline.  A generous hem with softly pleated folds fit perfectly over my capris.  The crimson hue (one of my favorite colors) is just right for Valentine’s day!  The free hunt package, which happens to be prize number 12, contains versions for a number of mesh body types.  For just an investment of time spent hunting in the Justice store, you’ll come away with a vibrant top that I’m sure will become a warmer weather favorite!  The hunt runs until Valentine’s Day, so you have plenty of time to teleport to the shop and do a little sleuthing for yourself.  If you get stumped, you can find hints on the Justice web page, here.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Lasso My Heart for Infinity

What would a Valentine’s Day outfit be without a heart shaped pendant?  I found exactly what I was looking for over at the Grumble store for just 59 Linden dollars.  With a bright red heart dangling from a dark cord decorated with the infinity symbol, this bauble coordinated well with my new top.  If you’d prefer a different color, you can pick up a silver, pink or gold version for just 59 Linden each.  Although it’s just right for V-day, I know I’ll wear this necklace over and over throughout the year.

Back to the Hunt…

Ripley and I are going to head back to Justice and see if we can discover the rest of the elusive hearts scattered throughout the store.  Wish us luck!  Until next time, happy hunting!

Stopping to Smell the Roses

Oh Spring.... I'm Ready for You!

Hello there, Fabulouses!  I hope your weekend is going well.  Ripley and I returned today to one of our favorite sims for photography, Mystical Fae, to capture a snapshot of a cute little dress that I picked up as a free gift just for being a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group.

Oh Spring… I’m Ready for You!

I know, I know…….I’m a little premature with my longing for spring, but a girl can dream, right?  When the elusive warmer weather arrives, I’ll be all set for a night on the town in my new frock.  The Ijalu dress from Artizana has a bodice that features a plunging neckline and criss-cross straps in a luminous dark gray solid fabric.  The coordinating skirt is double layered with a silvery, semi-transparent print atop a solid underskirt.  With its flirty length, this little number would be perfect for a date night.  The folder contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, so there is something in there for everyone.  Best of all, you can pick it up for free!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

The scent of these roses is just so heavenly!  It’s so tempting to gather a few of them for my table!  I think Ripley and I will stop by the florist shop, and bring home a little bit of spring.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Hello Friday, I’m Ready!

Gray Day

Hello Fabulouses.  We made it!  We’re finally on the downhill slide to Friday!  I don’t know about you, but for me, this week has dragged on in RL.  When Ripley and I were over at the Fatal Fashion store picking up the outfit I blogged in my post here, I saw the perfect little mini dress to ring in the weekend.  And, just like the last gift, this one is completely free and contains an entire look, including heels and a necklace!

Free Flirty Frock

The Cecelia dress features a subtle color variation from a lighter gray at the bodice to a darker tone at the skirt.  Deep black edging and horizontal bands accent the overall design.  I love the way the fabric “poufs” out and is gathered in.  It creates such a pleasing effect.  If you zoom your camera in close, you can even see lighter gray accent stitching – such fine detail!  It’s kind of hard to see in my photo, but the bodice is completely strapless.  The intricate Goddess Necklace I’m sporting is also included in the gift package as well as the high heel Lysa Shoes.  Right out of the box, you have everything you need for a night out on the town….all for free.  To pick up Outfit 047 for yourself, you need to be a member of the My Fair Gifts group, but it’s free to join.  Just teleport over to the shop, switch to the group tag, and tap the vendor.  You’ll be ready for date night in a flash!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink

Well, that’s it for tonight – short and sweet – but I wanted to tell you all about this opportunity before Friday arrives.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Once Upon a Midnight Dreary

Nevermore

Hello Fabulouses!  Since Ripley and I found some fantastic hunt prizes lately, we decided to hit the trail once again.  This time, we set out along the Quoth the Raven Hunt path.  Over at Little 2 Large, we discovered this fabulous gown, and it only cost 1 little Linden dollar, plus a bit of searching time.  On the wall of the shop, you’ll find a hunt poster, which contains a helpful hint in case you get stuck.

With Many a Flirt and Flutter, In There Stepped a Stately Raven

The stately raven over at Little 2 Large actually brought *more* than just the gown in my picture.  In addition to a splendid frock, you’ll also receive male and female Dinkies outfits (Dinkies are these absolutely adorable mesh kitty avatars that you may have seen around the grid), a coordinating Nevermore men’s suit, and a petite Nevermore mini dress.  The additional prizes are no transfer, but if your man happens to come along with you on the hunt, for just 1 more Linden dollar, you can look all matchy-matchy.  As you can see from my picture, the gown starts out black at the bodice, but transitions into a soft gray texture, which reminded me of watercolors.  I really love the intricate black lace that adorns the sexy, full length slits in the skirt as well as the generous hemline.  The “sleeves” on the bodice resemble black feathers, and the package also included shoulder feathers that I opted not to wear.  For just a dollar, this fabulous hunt prize will have you all set up for formal fall parties, whether you have a classic or a mesh body avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique

Ripley has taken to growling at that beguiling Raven, for that bird (to quote from Poe himself):

“…never flitting, still is sitting, STILL is sitting…

just above my chamber door…”

I’d better see if I can help the pupster escape unharmed from “The Raven.”  Until next time, happy hunting!

Let a Hundred Flowers Bloom

Autumn's Blooms

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to share one of our discoveries as we checked out the hunt going on at the Rock Your Rack Event.  It costs only 10 little Linden dollars, and features just the cutest botanical design.

Autumn Posies

Over at the Maci booth, if you can find the coat hanger with the heart on it (it’s not that hard to locate), you can scoop up the Autumn Blooms skirt for yourself.  With a cheerful floral print across a black background, this mini can pair with a top in a variety of colors from black as I chose to wear, to red, pink or white.  I really like the decorative white stitching along the waist and hem lines; it adds a bit of visual contrast.  The waistline sits low, just below your belly button so if you wear a cropped top, you can show off some skin while the temperatures outside are still fairly mild (unless you live near Love in which case you are stuck with snow).  Since the package includes sizes for classic as well as mesh body avatars, I’m sure you’ll find the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

I hope you have a wonderful Friday tomorrow.  I know I’m sure looking forward to a relaxing weekend.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Hello July

Hello July

Happy Saturday or Sunday, Fabulouses (depending on where you are in the world)!  I hope you are having a fantastic weekend.  The pupster and I decided to spend some of ours indulging in some budget friendly retail therapy.  After reading Aline’s post {HERE} in which she said there was another free super cute crop top over at FashionNatic, I decided to teleport over to the store and take a look around.  Boy, am I glad I did!

Thank you, Aline!!

The Nadia top is a flirty wrap style sleeveless shirt that includes a HUD packed with a fat pack of 30 textures.  I opted to shade all portions with a really pretty pink floral pattern, but I could just have easily colored the left side, right side, and tie differently.  That opens up a ton of variations!  With neck and back lines that plunge low, and a tummy skimming fit, you’ll be able to stay cool all summer long wearing this top.  Nadia coordinated well with my casual capris, but I could also see pairing it with a skirt for a dressier look.  The package contains versions for mesh bodies only.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head on over to the shop, activate the FashionNatic group tag (it’s completely free to join), click the vendor, and select “deliver.”

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

Ripley and I are off to wander the grounds of the Mystical Fae sim.  It’s just so tranquil and beautifully landscaped.  I’d highly recommend a trip there!  Until next time, happy shopping.

Faded Blue

Faded Blue

Hello Fabulous Readers.  So, the other day, I couldn’t get Ripley to even open his eyes just a tiny bit, but my animal magnetism is working fine on the ladies over at Mystical Fae sim as you can see from my snapshot.  They just didn’t stop following me around.  I think they approved of my latest outfit, which I picked up for just 50L at the Sunny Side Up Sale at The Wash.  You’ve probably seen Aline’s and Love’s posts featuring beautiful items for the gals, but I’m here to tell you the guys haven’t been forgotten!

Dark Water and Faded Denim

As soon as I saw the casual Faded Denim Weekend Set at the Dark Water Designs cart, I knew I had to grab a copy for myself.   For just 50L, I was able to add a complete outfit to my summer wardrobe… a great deal!  The light blue button down shirt comes with the open/bare chested version I’m wearing, as well as one which includes a white tee for those cooler days.  Knee length white twill shorts complete the look.  I like the added detail of the belt at the waistline.  The package contains fit mesh and classic versions.  By adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza mesh body, I was able to wear everything with no problem.   The sale at The Wash continues on through May 16th, so you still have plenty of time to scoop up this warm weather staple for yourselves.

Sizes Included:

  • Fit Mesh v1, v2, v3
  • Classic Mesh in S, M, L
  • Alpha layers for shirt with tee and no tee
  • Alpha Layer for shorts

Until next time, happy shopping!
