The Power of Jean

The power of a great jean jacket cannot be denied.  I remember when I found one when I was on vacation in Italy.  I was with a bunch of friends, and we wandered into a store, and there it was.  It was perfect.  It could be dressed up, dressed down, it was the perfect blue.  I hemmed and hawed.  I wasn’t sure I should spend the money…and I walked away.  I regret walking away from that jacket!  Today, you will walk toward a perfect jean jacket – and not worry about the price even once!

It’s Well Made!

Wellmade has a whole bunch of really nice group gifts out – including (of course) the super adorable jean jacket with flower appliqué I’m wearing today!  I think you’ll agree it will go with loads of different outfits, and really pep up your wardrobe! The jacket comes with a handy HUD that has options to change the jacket to black or red as well as the jean version.  Cool!   While I was there, I also picked up this sweet red dress to go with it – it also has an HUD that allows you to change to purple with white polka dots if that’s more your thing.  As I said earlier, don’t even worry about the price for a second, because both the dress and jacket are completely free!  Just join the Wellmade group and enjoy your gifts!  Yay!

Quirk Life

Quirk Life

I’m feeling super quirky today.  Well, I mean…. I usually feel super quirky.  Today especially, because it’s Wednesday and I feel like I need to bring some pep to an otherwise exceedingly normal day.  Do you ever do that?   You know, wear a tutu or cat ears to work just to spark conversation?  I might be alone in that camp, but today in SL is a bathing suit, crazy glasses and zappy gun kinda day.  Ha!

Dive In

I’m feeling just so playful in this bathing suit group gift by Rosary.   They regularly put out really high quality gifts, and this one is no exception.  It comes with an HUD to change to various solid colours, as well as my fave part – the different patterns you can choose through the second HUD.  I went all mermaid on  you, but there are a WHOLE bunch to choose from that made my decision pretty difficult.  Have fun with it!  You can grab this group gift by joining the Rosary group for 200 Lindens.  There are a bunch of other gifts out to enjoy as well!

London Calling

Sixties London

I found a fantastic outfit at The Wash Cart Sale – and it put me in the mood for the swinging 60’s.  Whenever I think about that, I imagine London, England.  You know, Carnaby Street and Mary Quant and Miniskirts.  I hear the sounds of The Beatles in my mind, and I totally want a giant pile of chips.  Though I think the chips thing is completely unrelated (seriously though, if you’ve never had fish & chips in England from a chip shop, you need to do it because your life will be altered forever… so so gooood).  Anyway,  I found the nearest red post box and struck a pose!

Be Legendaire

At The Wash Cart Sale, I found the booth by Legendaire which is filled with fashion-forward goodness.  This skirt and top combo cost me 10 measly Lindens, and is super versatile.  Of course, you can wear them separately, but they also come with various different textures that range from psychedelic to demure.  There’s even a jean option in there.  So Good!

  • Isis
  • Venus

Extend Your Empire

To very little fanfare, Empire’s May group gift appeared in the main store.  It’s these cute bootie-style heels complete with fishnet features.  I really think you could make these work in loads of different situations.  You may know that the Empire group is somewhat expensive at 500L to join, but there are still a bunch of gifts out to make up for the join fee, including shoes, boots and clothing.  The word on the street is that last year’s gifts will be disappearing soon, so if you’re planning on joining, I suggest you do it soon!  These shoes come with loads of colour options, and are sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink.

I need to find some chips now.  SEND HELP!

Making A Splash

Making A Splash

Full disclosure:  I’m a bit of a nerd.  So, when I found these fantastic bathing suits at The Wash Cart Sale, I got mildly excited.  I can’t resist the R2-D2 print, and I also could NOT say no to the Tetris one.  I can’t.   The fact that they’re just 10L each is icing on the cake!

Let Me Take A Selfie

Let Me Take A Selfie

One of my life mottos is “You can never have too many t-shirts”.  I own a vast amount of shirts in RL, that take up a lot of space.  I’ve got it all:  Band T-shirts (hey Led Zeppelin), tv shows (Jem and the Holograms, yaaaas), and even really weird ones that don’t necessarily mean anything, but amuse me (“Welcome to the Faraway Kingdom” – does that have a meaning I’m unaware of?).   Anyway, the moral of the story is that my piles of shirts carry over to SL, but I don’t need to fold them or find space for them!  Yay!

Get Shirty With Me

I found a collection of cropped t-shirts at Tooty Fruity that are completely free!  There are a massive amount of black tops in this gift, each with a different word on them.  I went with one of the less rude options (Keepin’ it PG-13 y’all!) but there are piles of amusing tops you can choose from.  They come with an Omega applier as well as System layers.  I also found this fun headband while at Tooty Fruity, and I thought it just added to my randomness smashingly.  Grab both for free at the store, no group join required.  Pssst – there are other free gifts there waiting to be discovered!

Do you have a fave t-shirt?  A collection?

I’d love to hear about them!

C’est La Vie

La Vie

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Sunday!  As you can see, Ripley and I had a lazy morning over on the La Vie sim today.  I tossed some crumbs to this adorable gaggle of geese while the pupster supervised, making sure no Ripley snack pieces were in the mix.  What a lovely way to start the day!

As Luck Would Have It

Yesterday, I shared a group gift that I had picked up over at Zoom Design.  When I went back to the store to pick up the landmark for my post, I happened to glance over at the group only Lucky Boards, and was thrilled to see a “K” appear.  Quick as a wink, I tapped the board, and became the proud new owner of this Gizele Outfit.  The free package included a separate crop top, skirt, and four texture color change HUD.  I chose the black floral design, but could have gone with solid black, solid brown or a brown floral pattern.  The top includes lacing which criss-crosses through golden eyelets; it’s sexy, yet keeps you covered in all the right places.  The skirt reaches to almost knee length and features a slit in the side.  In the photo, it appears like there are two slits, but that is an illusion created by the sit position – there is actually just one slit on the left side.  Sorry about that, but I just love the romantic nature of the pose in the swing, so I opted to go with this photo, and explain about the skirt.  To pick up a copy of this sweet outfit for yourself, simply teleport over to the shop, switch to the Zoom Designs group tag, and cross your fingers.  Hopefully your special letter will appear quickly!

New Tresses

On Friday, I received a group notice from the Olive VIP group regarding a new release, so I popped over to the shop to take a look.  While there, I scooped up some of the VIP gift hairs on the shelf and noticed the Aries style, which is part of the Zodiac Collection.  This gorgeous, full, side-parted, shoulder length style frames the face in luxurious waves.  The free gift package for group members includes a FULL fat pack of color options, so it’s a wonderful treat.  Also on the shelf, you’ll find the newest group gift, an updo called Skee, as well as a variety of other free items.  If you are not a group member, you can purchase the Aries Zodiac Collection at the store.

The crumbs have all been gobbled up, the geese have dispersed, and Ripley is giving me that “I’m STARVING!” look with his deep chocolate eyes.  He WAS a good boy, and made no move to “share” the breadcrumbs with the birds, so it’s time to head on home, and reward his model behavior.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Classy Dame

Classy Dame

Everyone needs a good bunch of classic items for their wardrobe.  Even me, the girl who loves bodysuits, pastel hair and thigh high boots.  Sometimes you just gotta dress it up all classic-like and be respectable and such!

Boss Time

I found this very appropriate, yet modern look that will take you from work to cocktails in no time.  And of course, it’s FREE!  I picked up the Donna pants and shirt at No Name by joining their group for free.  The shirt comes with an HUD that allows you to change to six satiny colours.  You can wear the top and pants separately, which will expand your outfit opportunities greatly!  This outfit comes in XXS – L with an Alpha Layer.

Hair Flair

There are several new lucky boards up at Olive, making the total opportunities for a new ‘do rocket up to 12!  Yep, 12 different boards – 12 different styles for all your hair needs.  You don’t even need to join a group, just a little luck and patience.  I was lucky enough to grab the long, blonde “White Rabbit” hair for free which I’m feeling quite luxurious in!  Go get ’em!

I think my work here is done, so now time for that cocktail!

Weird and Wonky

Weird and Wonky

Oh hey there Fab Free.  You’re looking lovely this evening.  I’m feeling….a bit weird and wonky.  I dunno, like I’ve been looking at myself in a fun house mirror or something.  The only thing to do when that happens is run with it – make the weirdness your biggest asset, and that’s what I plan to do.  Today, I found the perfect dress to make my weirdness come out front and centre.

Meet Me At the Altar

Ostara’s Altar, that is!  It’s an event filled with the witchy, spooky, gothy things I highly enjoy, as well as having a fun little 5L hunt going on too.  I found the Get Frocked egg, and inside lay this fun dress!  It just calls out to me.  Want to know what lies hidden within the other eggs?  Well you can have a little peek right HEREOstara’s Altar runs until April 3rd, so head on over!

  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

At Midnight…

I have been enjoying a few different free Olive hairdos in the last little while, and recently I slapped the Midnight Madness board while I was there, and this hella big creation was delivered to me at Midnight! I’ve done it a few times, and each time I have participated, the prize was delivered to me!  I’m pretty sure it is switched every few days, so the hair I’m wearing might not be available today, but there are a whole bunch of other options, so you can add to your hair collection!  Good Luck!

Absolutely Mint

Absolutely Mint

I have a love-hate relationship with hunts in SL.  They can be really fun, and you can find a million fantastic prizes, and you are all happy and joyful and such.  Then there are the ones that are gruelling, painful affairs where every prize is impossible to find and you go cross-eyed just thinking about it!

The Finders Keepers hunt was actually the former experience – I found things without going completely cross-eyed, and I even made some new friends along the way who banded with me to find all the stuff.  And of course, I got some fun free gifts!  Win-win!

Here’s what I picked up on the hunt:

  • FREE Mint latex pants from Yasum (Sized for Maitreya)
  • FREE Super high platforms from Moda (Sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink with loads of colours to choose from in the HUD)
  • FREE Tousled hair by Olive (I managed to use the HUD match the pants! Bonus! There’s also another style in the box too!)

I had a great time on the hunt (So did Love, Astrid and Serena, as you can see…), and I think you’ll enjoy it too!

Notes on Ombré

Notes on Ombré

I’m all about the ombré look.  There is something quite appealing in the fading of colours together that makes me feel a bit like I’m wearing a painter’s palette.  I can picture myself swirling graciously on a canvas.  Or perhaps, depending on the colours, I can be an electric current.  Today I’m feeling a bit like the latter, but that might be because of this hot outfit, and not just the colours!

Hucci Mama!

Hucci has provided me with this really cool jumpsuit.  It comes all in one piece and includes the attached heels!  I love the pastel ombré of course, and the outfit makes me feel like making my way to a club and holding court on the dance floor.  In fact, that’s where I’m heading in the photo!  You can grab this FREE gift by heading to Hucci, clicking on the subscriber (It’s the big sign that says Group Join), then clicking on the little box that says “Touch Here to get Previously Sent Items”.  A menu will pop up, and from there you choose the February Gift, and click “Deliver”.  Ta-Da!  You may have to be a little patient, but it will happen 😉
