The Witch With a Bank Account

The Witch with a Bank Account

October is upon us!  I’m feeling all witchy and blustery.  Since I promised myself I’d just gently dip my toe into the waters of Halloween and spookiness, I’m going for the witch with a bank account look.  I dunno, I feel like I’m stuck somewhere between Clueless and Worst Witch.  Does that make sense? Probably not.  Anyway, whatever this is, I’m liking it very much!

I Can’t Cabide it!

Terrible subtitle puns aside, this dress is lovely, isn’t it?  I’ve seen variations on this theme over the past few years, but I never get sick of it.  The Aradia dress is a free offering from No Cabide, and it comes with loads of different starry options in the HUD.  I’m a sucker for anything celestial.  Join the No Cabide group for free, and you’ll find all sorts of goodies at the store!  Enjoy!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • XXS – L with an Alpha Layer

Shady Lady

Swallow has a new gift out for members as well, only for a limited time (Until October 5th, I believe!) – join the group for 40 Lindens, and you can pick up a 250L gift card to buy anything you so desire in the store!  I do love a good set of sun glasses, so I chose the Metropolitan Sunglasses which are a great addition to any outfit.  What will you buy at Swallow?

Now let me conjure this massive pumpkin pie in peace!

Shouting is Fun

Shouting is Fun

I was having a conversation with a friend about my “desert island” songs.  Basically, you choose 7 songs that you couldn’t live without if you were marooned on a deserted island.  They’re supposed to tell a story of what your life has been, through music.  Naturally, I got onto YouTube as quick as I could and dove in, so I’ve been listening to music and remembering things all day.  I am not ashamed to say that one of my most formative songs was “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls, because GIRL POWER!!!! Amirite?  One of my favourite Spice Girls quotes ever is “Silence is Golden, but Shouting is FUN”, and I can’t think of a more apt thing to say about my outfit today! So, today because I’m feeling kind of loud, I found a fun bunch of goodies!  Let me try as concise as possible and tell you about all the awesomeness…

Hair

Dude – go to Fabia.  Seriously, go.  Love told me of the goodies that lay there, and she wasn’t lying.  Join the group for 100L and literally (well, figuratively…) get a million different hairdos that will have you unpacking until the cows come home!  I chose the “Britney” hairstyle which features two gorgeous braids cascading down the back, and loads of colour options but there is so much more to choose from at Fabia!

Top

This black lace bustier is the most recent group gift from HEC.  Join the group for 25L, and gain access to a hoard of awesome gifts. Pay the vendor 1L, and you’ll get it refunded.  I really like this top because I can dress it up or down, and it’s just a whole lotta fun.  Go get it!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Ebody
  • Small & Large Standard Sizes

Jeans

My fun animal-print and pastel jeans (that are open to quite a daring dip…eep!) are a group gift over at No Cabide.  There’s a whole bunch of goodness to pick up there too, and the group is free to join!  These jeans come in an array of pretty pastel shades that are anything but demure! Oh, and bonus – there’s a matching pair of shoes in the box!

Sizes

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

PHEW.  I think it’s time for a dance around the room after all that work!

Free As A Bird

FabFree: Turquoise (Take 2)Hello there Fabulous Readers!  I hope you have been enjoying your weekend!  The weather is so nice here (aside from the wind and allergies…  I just have to deal with that lol) that I have been able to spend a lot of my weekend outside in the garden, but I still made time pop inworld to take you under my wing and show you where to find a couple of really great free items.

She was a lovely bird

I’m going to start off by telling you about this beautiful tattoo called Lovely Bird which I found as a free group gift at Carol G.  This tattoo comes in four different fades and includes a ton of applier options.  The Carol G. group is currently 130L to join, but here are several group gifts to pick up making the fee worth your while.

Tattoo Appliers Included:

  • Belleza
  • Bento Vista
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Omega
  • TMP

A Perfect Match

While I was on my search for something to co-ordinate with the pretty colours in this tattoo, I remembered that DM has the Nanda Set that includes the crochet bikini top and long beachy skirt as a free group gift for joining the No Cabide inworld group.  The included texture change HUD allows for 5 different skirt options (prints and solids) and 5 different bikini top colours as well.  You could mix and match these two items for days!  The No Cabide inworld group is free to join, making this 100% free!

Sizes Included:

  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Maitreya Experimental (worked great on my mine!)

Donut Tempt Me

Donut Tempt Me

I’m standing in my kitchen, and wondering who put this pile of donuts and these sugar cookies here.  Why?  Why!  I want to eat every single last morsel, BUT I shall be good.  I’ve got my reasons, like wanting to fit into this super adorable and sweet dollarbie dress from No Cabide!

Heart Eyes

I am pushing all thoughts of sweet treats from my mind and focusing on how cute this little dress is!  I do enjoy anything dappled with hearts, and this dress just makes me smile.  You can grab it for a measly little Linden on the SL Marketplace from No Cabide!  Cute!

Sizes

  • XXS – L with an Alpha
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

I just remembered….I can eat anything I want in SL and not gain any weight!

I guess you CAN have your cake and eat it too!

Rock & Roll is Here to Stay

Rock & Roll is Here to Stay
“Rock and Roll is Here to Stay, It Will Never Die” – Danny & The Juniors

Well hello again Fab Free’rs! As always, I’m really glad you’re here. If you need a way to spend a little time, No Cabide has teamed up with DM (Dakota Modas) for a fun Rock Mini Hunt at the No Cabide main location. The hunt consists of 16 total hunt prizes that range in cost from 1 to 15 lindens each. There are 3 complete rock themed looks that include clothing, accessories, and shoes. You could also mix and match the looks to create something entirely different. Though this is a hunt, the prizes aren’t really hidden so much as scattered around the No Cabide shop in cute red hearts. Most of the clothing is meant to fit Slink or Maitreya bodies, a few will also fit Belleza bodies. I’ve included a copy of the Rock Mini Hunt poster at No Cabide for added information, along with the usual list of credits below. Happy Hunting Fab Free! Also, the hunt ends September 27th, so don’t wait too long!

The Damsel in Denim

Walk With Me

Hello Fabulouses!  There is something about taking a long walk with a canine friend that just makes the stress melt away.  Although I don’t live in a rural area any more, and have to get my dose of country from SL, I still cherish walking with my faithful pal by my side.  I’m sure Ripley enjoys it just as much as I do since he is alone during the day with only the cats for company.

Perfect Attire for an Early Evening Stroll

My skinny jeans are the latest Fab Free group gift from Tiar.  With a snug, curve-hugging fit, realistic wrinkled texture near the knees, and rolled cuffs, these pants are just right for a casual outfit.  Although I love to dress up, I am most at home in faded, comfy denim, both in RL and in SL.  This free gift includes sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh bodies.  To scoop this goody up for yourself, simply head on over to Tiar, then use the teleport board at the landing area to travel to the Midnight Mania area where the gifts section is located.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Dotted With Stars

The adorable side-knotted crop top I am sporting today is part of a package offered by No Cabide on the Marketplace for only 49L.  The Alessandra set contains a pair of denim shorts (not worn), my summery top, and a texture change HUD for the shirt with 15 various options, including both solids and prints.  I opted for a medium blue sprinkled with golden stars, which I felt coordinated well with the hue of my jeans.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Shorts and top in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha Layer for both
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

Ripley is ready and raring to go for a game of fetch-the-stick, so we’re going to have a little exercise session before we head on home.  I bet the cats will appreciate a tired pup who’s ready to nap all day tomorrow.  Sometimes that boy can get a little too rambunctious… Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/14/2017 – No Cabide

No Cabide Storefront

Hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone has enjoyed the start of the weekend so far. I know I am. For those that celebrating the Easter holiday, happy Easter just in case I don’t “see” you again before then! Thanks for coming by, this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday is a little shop called No Cabide. The first time I recall having encountered No Cabide is at one of the annual Cart Sales at The Wash. It’s another one of those great shops that had grown by leaps and bounds.
Gifts @No Cabide
No Cabide sells a wide variety of casual mesh and applier women’s clothing and shoes. I would describe the style of the clothing as both sexy and casual. Just inside the entrance you’ll find the “circulation” desk and the most recent new releases. If you venture to the right and look for some shiny heart shaped balloons you’ll find a wall of gorgeous group gifts. This is also where the pretty dress No Cabide has out as their FREE exclusive Fab Free group gift can be found. You may remember seeing it in Serena’s post “ It’s Friday I’m in Love.”  Of course there are several other group gifts, including a few for the FREE to join No Cabide group. Also, while you’re shopping you might spot a few piles of pretty Easter eggs scattered about. Don’t mistake those for simple decor, these eggs are priced between 1 and 15 lindens each and contain cute holiday themed clothing items. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

It’s Friday, I’m in Love

nc5_001f

Happy Friday, fabulous readers! And what a crazy, bizarre week this has been! The “highlight” of my week was accidentally tossing my cell phone in the washer with a load of laundry. GAAAH! My poor baby is dead, but at least she smells good. 😥

To cheer myself up, I grabbed Finn and headed over to Summer Trace for a relaxing walk in the sun. Finn had a grand old time chasing the birds (which she never caught), and I enjoyed the pretty flowers and ocean breeze. Ahhhh.

Dressed Up to the Eyes

My dress is the latest Fab Free group gift from No Cabide. The Jayne Mini Dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • TMP

You also get an amazing texture-change HUD which includes 10 dress fabrics, as well as 10 strap textures. To grab your gift, activate your Fabulously Free in SL in-world group tag and pop on over to No Cabide.

To See Your Shoes and Your Spirits Rise

Continuing my Friday theme… my cute flats happen to be from fri.day! The Bebe Flats (in peachy) are only 50L today for Fifty Linden Friday and are sized for Slink and Maitreya mesh feet. I love the detailed stitching and pretty, feminine bows. 🙂

While you are there, be sure to have a look around the store. Fri.day is having their Semi-Annual Sale from March 3-10, and everything in the store is 50% off (excluding gachas and gift cards). This is a great time to stock up on shoes for spring!

Here’s to a calm, stress-free weekend! 😎
