“Smart Casual”

By the Sea_001

I found this cozy little spot for dining and listening to music — a cafe of sorts with live music and it’s all set over the sea. If you decide to visit just take a hop over to Isolotto di Garda. It’s got a ton of comfy chairs and a sort of nautical style and it’s all enclosed with glass so that you can see the docks and gulls in the harbor not far off.

The dress code is “smart casual” so I had to dig up something appropriate. I decided to hunt something down instead.

More Women’s Stuff!

The Women’s Stuff Hunt never disappoints me, and this time I took a hop to Tori’s Stylez and hunted down that little red t-shirt to pick up the gift there. The creator generously had the gift for the hunt set to 0L so my floral top with it’s tie front and uniquely styled sleeves was totally free!

It comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – Large + a Curvy
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Revisiting Redeux.

To add a finishing touch to my outfit, I revisited the Redeux Event. You have until April 21st to pick up all of the many free gifts set out for you by the generous creators. I picked up this free necklace by On a Lark at their booth. It comes with a color change hud that changes the color of each little stone for lots of combinations, allowing me to get the necklace to match my shirt just perfectly!

Time for a Redeux

Purple Flowers

Time for a Redeux.

The Redeux event began April 14th (so if you go now you will probably miss the major laggy crowds) but it lasts until April 21st so there is still plenty of time to snap up the deals. Many booths are out featuring 30L and 35L deals as well as each booth offers a free gift (no group required!)

Picking flowers.

I was picking up my free gifts at the Redeux event, and I happened to pick the box at the Sexy Princess booth and brought home the purple flowered romper you see in the picture above. (TIP: I noticed that some of the boxes don’t deliver when you click them, but if you right click and select “give me” or “touch” they will deliver that way.) This spring romper seemed perfect for a sunny Sunday afternoon, and it offered some favorite body sizes as well as standard fitmesh sizes with a quality alpha.

Sizes in the box:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

My Secret Garden On Tuesday

My Secret Garden on Tuesday

It’s 25L Tuesday! Time to stock up on your roleplay wardrobe! On a Lark has out another lovely dress for the ladies… and again it is one that is versatile enough to be for roleplay or everyday. You can pick it up in a myriad of colors for just 25L each and this pretty dress comes in fits for Maitreya, Freya, Venus, Isis, Hourglass, Venus, and Werwolf. There are no standard mesh sizes in the package and it does not include an alpha, though if you did some fiddling, you might be able to get it to fit a standard avatar.

I decided I needed a place to lounge about and found the perfect seating courtesy of Crys Secret Garden. They have generously put out a gift for FabFree members.

Just join the FabFree group FREE by coping and pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about into local chat, clicking the link, and then joining the group.

Teleport to Crys Secret Garden and pick up this lovely rock garden with daffodils free! It includes 5 sits and is only 6 prims.

Full Circle

Full Circle

I love 25L Tuesdays! Especially when the goodies are versatile like they are today! On a Lark has out a beautiful new dress in lots of colors for only 25L each that comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fits for Maitreya, Physique, and Hourglass. This dress is a classic roleplay dress… BUT! It looks awesome as a go to dress for everyday wear as well… which makes it perfect for my inventory. And for the 25L price tag? I bought it in lots of colors!

I also stopped by Luas where my 25L bought me this awesome handbag and back-back set. You get both the handbag shown as well as a backpack (not shown) for your single 25L price. There were 3 other colors/designs, if the one in the picture above doesn’t suit you.

Full Circle 2

Chop Zuey also has out some beautiful new gifts that I wanted to share with you, and I really fell in love with their Circles Set. You can pick up the Circles Necklace in Gold as a group gift if you are a group member (the group fee is 350 but this gives you access to lots of regular group gifts). The earrings are a courtesy gift and FREE to all under the FabFree board. Just pay 0L and pick up the pretty matching earrings completely FREE 🙂

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Catch Me in your Dreams

Catch Me in Your Dreams

25L Tuesdays are a dream come true for roleplayers in Second Life… though I think this special item I came across today would please just about anyone. On a Lark has a pretty camisk out that roleplayers may just want to add to their wardrobe… and those of you who wear modern clothes could wear it with a pair of jeans and call it a pretty shirt. This is the “Envelop” top by On a Lark.

You can buy this pretty camisk today in a multitude of colors (and I do mean a lot of colors) for just 25L each. It comes in all your standard mesh sizes, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Belleza, Physique, and Hourglass, and each of the fits comes in two different textures for each color — a plain and a damask. Beware if you wear it alone! It covers the front but not the hiney (*winks*). I’m showing you a picture at the bottom of this post so you can see the pretty bow in the back that is the icing on the cake so to speak.

Pixel Box offered a weekend gift of a necklace Dreamcatcher that I added to my pretty look. This is a FREE TO ALL gift that you can pick up at the store. Sunday was supposed to be the last day that the gift was out, but when I checked this morning, it was still there… so I recommend haste if you like it and don’t want to miss out!

Dragon For a Day

Dragon for a Day

I decided to be a dragon for a day…

My look was actually inspired by the newest FREE group gift from [EvelineInTheBox]. The group is FREE to join and then you can pick up this amazing little black dress called Talena. It comes in all the standard sizes as well as Maitreya and TMP. I warn you, it’s really really short… but I LOVE the styling and details and the swirly black sequins. They are to die for… or to dragon for 😉

I snagged a set of dragon wings for only 69L at Astralia. They have an in-store gacha that is FAB FAB FAB!!! The Khaleesi dragon wings are high detail and include a hud that lets you change the color of the claws on the wings. YUM! For 69L a spin, these are a deal!

I finished my look off with the FREE Summer Fun Gift hair for yesterday/today at Alice Project called Oona. It is scheduled to be changed out around 2 or 3pm SLT today and there will be a new FREE gift hair out at that time. Then this one will be only available to group members after that time. If you want to join the Alice Project group, that is a 375L group fee, but right now it is definitely worth it, as you get an extra gift each day in a natural set of colors in addition to the FREE to all gifts that are being set out. For more information on the Alice Project Gifts see my previous post [HERE].

Have a Fabulous day! ❤

The Valkyrie’s Blessing

The Valkyrie's Blessing

The Medieval Fantasy Hunt XV started April 1 and is prime time for lovers of roleplay or fantasy wear in general to get some great costumes for play or fun for FREE. This is the time to stock up your wardrobe! I have only made two stops so far and immediately I wanted to show the very first two things I found! That’s how good this stuff is!

My current roleplay home, Crest of Vrek’mar (adult Sim), made the perfect backdrop with its beautiful builds for this amazing Valkyrie outfit which is the women’s FREE hunt gift on the Blessing path from Tamiron Forge. I have to give shouts out to both the creator of these items I’m showing today and to the roleplay Sim where I spend so much of my time… they give roleplayers creative outlets and homes in Second Life.

The Valkyrie by Tamiron Forge is well detailed with resizable bracers and a crown, and includes a skirt and separate top both in all the standard mesh sizes for a perfect fit.

I also stopped by Chaos, Panic, & Disorder! where I picked up the Blessing Path FREE hunt gift for Ladies. This store is offering a Cursed and Blessing path gift for both men and ladies, but I’m only showing the one. I’m going to show you the vendor advertisement here for a close up.

The Alchemists Blessing

I really appreciate that this creator left this necklace as modify. It is beautiful all on its own, but I did a little playing to get it to match the Valkyrie outfit… making it full bright, adding a .04 glow to it, and adding a slight blue tint as well. I think these slight touches to the pendant made it a perfect match to the outfit. I love when creators are generous enough to allow us these modifications.

Happy hunting!

Corset-ed Fairy

Corset-ed Fairy

I decided to put my roleplay hat on… or rather my wings on! Because I found an amazing little FREE in-store mini hunt at Tiar that is not to be missed. Right now if you bunny hop to Tiar, the creator is hosting an in-store mini Easter Egg hunt where you can get free goodies. There are eggs full of prizes all over the store. You have to be within 10 meters of the eggs to get the goods, so no cam-touching, but its well worth the hop around the store.

I picked up this FREE Princess Corset in all the standard sizes as one of the hunt gifts, as well as these FREE wings in black in one of the eggs. There were many many more wonderful gifts… so jump over to Tiar and fill your basket!

That Voodoo You Do

Oooooooooo that voodoo you do! Sometimes we all need a bit of fantasy in our lives. I know I do! And the enchantment hunt is up and running! If you stop by The White Armory, you can get your official Enchantment Hud so you’ll be able to do this FREE hunt. (While you are there, be sure to pick up this Sunday’s FREE gift! The group is FREE to join and the gift is lovely as always!)

You WILL need the hud to do the hunt. You have to wear the Hud to pick up the prizes. You are looking for the Enchantment book hidden at each location. I’m going to give you a sneak peek at a few of the really fabulous prizes this time around!

That Voodoo you Do

I am going to just straight up admit that I am in love with accessories when it comes to roleplay or fantasy wear, and that is really what this post is about. I put this look together using mostly accessories from the hunt. Make your first stop at Satyr’s Moon so that you can pick up these amazing FREE horns as their offering for the Enchantment hunt. They are resizable to fit just about any avatar and have some options for changing glow and shine.

My coin head accessory is a resizable and FREE gift for the hunt from Azoury. Stop by their main-store and hunt for the book! Remember to wear your Enchantment Hud in order to pick up your prize when you click on it!

My pretty moon bracelets are FREE courtesy of *N*Moon and really have fabulous detailing. I love the pearl drops and the crescent shaped design. These are well worth hunting down the book!

Last, but certainly not least! And probably my favorite of this posts round up… the voodoo doll I am holding! This little dandy of a treat is the FREE Enchantment Gift from Lulu. It includes a hold animation, though I used a pose from Belle Epoque. You won’t need any special poses. The hold animation worked great with my AO, so I don’t think you’ll have any troubles on that front.

Enjoy the hunt… get out there and accessorize!

A Cascade of Magic

Sometimes a little fantasy pick-me-up is just the thing to make your day… and today I felt like making a little magic! I picked up a few things around the grid sure to make any role player’s day a bit more magical, and I’m here to let you in on the magician’s secrets!

Right now if you stop by [EvelineInTheBox], the creator’s February gift is out. It is this lovely Thyri Cascade dress in mesh (all the standard sizes) that is really just fantastic. I love the way the dress curves around my avatar’s body! It is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join, making this lovely gift a sweet deal!

A Cascade of Magic

Remember that Alice Project is still hosting their Winter Project! Today I stopped by to pick up this hair called Amy in the Winter Shimmer version… which is the VIP members’ gift. This is FREE to VIPs. The group is 750L to join but there are always TONS of amazing offers. There is also a FREE pack out for nonmembers, so it’s still very worth your time to stop by and pick up the giftie even if you are not a VIP member.

My roleplay character Astrid is a fey who does light and magic using staffs… so when I saw this crystal staff at A.D.D.Andel! I fell in love! It is only 50L per spin at the in-store gacha and there are lots of beautiful staffs in the machine. These are even modifiable, so I was able to make mine have a bit of a glow to better fit how I envisioned my character. Love, love, love this!
