A Trio For You

Sweet Spring

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Tuesday!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to share a pretty spring frock with you that I picked up as a free group gift.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

It’s Really One of Three

This cream colored dress is the April gift for members of the Meva Update Group, but it’s just *part* of it.  Tucked inside the package are two other versions, so you get not one, but three dresses.  The sleeveless design, high neckline and scooped back make the Meva Flowers Dress 2 suitable for many occasions from casual to more dressy.   It all depends on how you choose to accessorize.  The fabric features delicate white blossoms scattered across a pale peach background, which creates a lovely design.  If this print is not up your alley, there is also a similar pattern scattered over a darker gray background, and a version which features a bold, vibrant floral motif.  The frock is designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to the shop, activate the Meva Update Group tag and click the vendor.  There is a 100L join fee, but membership grants you access to 9 other gifts on the wall nearby.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Why Walk If You Can Dance?

Alice

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week got off to a terrific start yesterday.  I’m happy to be able to tell you that Ripley made it through his surgery and is back home resting and recovering.  He surprised the vet tech by chewing through his first catheter – silly, spunky boy!  Right now, after he was shaved for his ultrasound last week, and again yesterday on his two front legs and around his incision, he looks a bit worse for wear, but I am grateful to have him back home.  We will know more in the next week or so if the surgery was successful.  Thank you so much for your kind words of support.  They touched my heart.

Since I had some extra time while hanging out with my exhausted pal, I was able to discover some gifts that I am excited to share with you.  One is this gorgeous dress, which I picked up as a free Women’s Day gift, and the other is a sultry dance animation that cost just one little Linden dollar.  Even though I’m nowhere near as skilled as Love with her editing skills, I had fun making a little video clip to showcase the dance moves, and I hope you enjoy it!

First, The Dress

With its high neckline and long sleeves, you might think the Alice Dress would be on the “plain Jane” side, but its sexy slit, golden eyelets and tied lacing add spice and intrigue.  I love the way this little number clings to your curves and dips dramatically low in the back.  The fabric itself contains subtle ribbing and realistic folds.  The hemline falls just to the upper thigh, so you might need to make strategic use of the alpha layer on your mesh body while out and about.  Although I opted for black, there is also a maroon version tucked inside the gift folder that is just as appealing.  To pick up a copy of this frock for yourself, teleport over to the Hilly Haalan shop, activate the Hilly Haalan Fashions tag, and tap the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Next, The Moves

Humanoid Dance Animations, one of my favorite animations stores on the grid, celebrates the return of Angie by offering the slow, sexy Angie_16 dance for just 1 Linden dollar.  It’s fascinating to watch how Angie’s dance animations are captured from real life, so I’ve linked Humanoid’s video below.  Here’s my little clip of how the dance appears in world:

 

 

Thanks for reading and watching.  Happy shopping!

Is Today Your Lucky Day?

Crossing Bridges

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  In my last post, I shared the latest group gift for members of the Scandalize group, and today I’m back with a Lucky Chair prize that group members can scoop up for free.  Sleek and elegant, I think you will really like this one!

When Lady Luck Smiles

Featuring a crop top with a cute twist detail in the fabric and curve-hugging leggings, the Senuna outfit is comfy yet packed with sex appeal.  The off the shoulder style of the top allows you to soak up some sunshine while long sleeves provide contrast and coverage.  In real life, I often have trouble finding sleeves that are long enough for me.  I wish more of my tops had the generous length that these sleeves do!  Even with its dramatically dipped neckline, the shirt still keeps you covered in all the right places.  For a bit of variety, you could opt to wear the fuzzy version of the top, which the generous designer also included with the prize.  In addition, you have two options for the leggings, both of which feature the word “Scandal” across the waistband.  You can opt for solid black as I have done in my photo, or add some pizazz with the ombre version, which fades from ebony to a rosey pink.  Either way, you will look stunning!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

The Pupster

You might know that Ripley is based on my RL dog.  Although he is fairly young, he has been having health issues for the past month, and the vet is not sure what is wrong with him.  I dropped him off for surgery this morning, and would sincerely appreciate positive thoughts and healing energy sent his way.  We were hoping to put off the operation until he regained more strength, but he took a turn for the worse over the weekend, and it can’t be delayed.  If you pray, please keep him in your prayers.  I’m worried about my pal.

Beachy Boho

Beachy Boho

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to check out the Education for Kenya Hunt and picked up this gorgeous Beach Bohemian dress for just 10 Linden dollars.  This hunt runs through February 28th and is a 50% to charity/50% to the designer hunt.  The charity is called Harambee Project Gwassi-Kenya and it helps to provide education and resources to people in Kenya.  If you decide to travel down the hunt path, you’ll be seeking a pencil shaped hunt object.   Pru also checked out this hunt, and you can read about the hunt gift she uncovered in her post here.

I Love Me a Maxi Dress

Even in real life, I tend to favor maxi dresses.  This one features an off-the-shoulder style, a close fitting, contrasting waist section, and a tiered skirt with accent stripes and a generous hem.  What first caught my eye about this beauty were the rich tones and the vibrant print.  A gold and blue botanical design is splashed across a crimson background.  It’s just so pretty!  My heels, which you can barely see peeping out from under the dress, coordinate beautifully with the rest of the outfit, and are also part of the hunt prize.  To pick up a copy for yourself, head on over to the Melange !nc. shop, and locate the yellow school pencil concealed there.  Actually, there are two hunt objects hidden at the store, so you might be able to come away with a couple of outfits for just 10 Linden dollars each.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Venus
  • Ankle Wrap Heels for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink

The pupster and I are off to see what other fabulous finds we can discover as we wander through the grid.  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!

Find Your Eclectique Style

Warming Up by the Fire

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  Isn’t it nice to have cooler weather again so we can enjoy the warmth of a crackling fire?  There’s nothing quite like an evening spent lazing in front of the hearth.  Ripley and I met two new friends while we warmed ourselves briefly while exploring the Luane’s World sim.  You’ll see them soon below…

I’m Loving the Lace

On our rambling journey around the grid this weekend, the pupster and I visited Eclectique, a new to us shop, and I was excited to see a number of gifts on the wall.  This Silver Detail mini dress features large silver grommets, an airy hem, a halter style neckline, and a gorgeous swirling lace pattern on the bodice.  I love the way the black trim beautifully accents the gray background.  Although there is not a style for classic avatars, several mesh body versions are included in the free package.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Eclectique group, which has a tiny 10L join fee, so you can add this frock to your collection for the grand total of ten linden dollars, which would be wonderful in itself, but wait, there’s more!  In addition to this cute mini dress, members can also scoop up 7 other free gifts!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Isis, Freya and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Two Cuties Inspecting Heels

Did Someone Say Free Shoes?

I spotted these ebony colored Rona Heels on the gift wall right beside my new dress.  With gleaming silver rhinestones and delicate straps, they made the ideal addition to round out my outfit.   The free package contains versions for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh feet, so they fit a variety of mesh body styles.  The heels are high enough to show off shapely legs, but not so much that they look impossible to walk in.  Because they are a subtle black hue, they will coordinate with many other items in your inventory.  I know I’ll be wearing these again very soon!  Best of all, they are free for members of the Eclectique store group.

Between the his vet visit on Friday to get his monthly allergy shot, the trip to the home show yesterday, and our long stroll around the grid today, the pupster is all worn out and happily snoozing on his dog bed.  It won’t be long until I wrap up this Sunday evening myself.  I hope you all have a fabulous Monday (well, as fabulous as a Monday could be anyway!).  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Les Jolie Fleurs

Antiquing With My Pal

Hello Fabulouses!  While out looking for antiques, Ripley and I stumbled across a new-to-us shop called FAFA.  As I wandered through the store, drinking in all the vibrant hues and tribal prints, the pupster did what he does best……..he sniffed out a free gift.  All I had to do  was switch to my SL Frees and Offers group tag, tap the vendor, and I took home a sweet new tank top – all for zero linden dollars!

Il y a Des Fleurs

That’s about the extent of the French I still remember from high school, but the heading really seemed to fit this gift.  Featuring delicate blossoms and greenery scattered across a cream colored background, the Fleur Tank is *almost* long enough to double as a short dress.  With the right pair of leggings or tights, you could definitely pull off a dressier look, but I opted to don on a pair of beige pants for a more casual outfit.   Where I live in RL, it’s still plenty warm enough for tank tops (still in the triple digits here), and one of the best things in SL is you can wear whatever you please and still be comfy and cozy, so this top made a welcome addition to my wardrobe.  I bet it will to yours, as well.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Ebody
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Well, we still haven’t discovered just the right piece of furniture for the corner of the great room, so Rip and I are off to do some more antiquing.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Let It Be Autumn

Let It Be

Hello Fabulous Readers, and happy Sunday evening to you.  Ripley is already curled up snoozing on his dog bed, but before I let this weekend draw to a close, I wanted to pop in with a quick post to share a super cute dress with you that I picked up as a free group gift.  I’m not sure how long it will be set out, so if you like it as much as I do, I’d suggest a quick teleport over to The Makeover Room so you can pick it up for yourself before it’s too late.

Feeling a Bit Blue?

The Let It Be dress from Entice hugs all your curves and features a cute little slit in the hem, three quarter length sleeves, and quirky silver spikes on the neckline.  I really like the realistic texture of the fabric, which shows some wrinkles and the weave of the fibers.  I am wearing the Navy option, but if you prefer a sky blue hue or a print with blue hearts, those dresses are also tucked inside the gift box for you.  The package includes classic mesh as well as versions for popular mesh bodies, but no alpha layer.  To scoop up this beauty for yourself, you need to be a member of The Makeover Room group, but it costs nothing to join, so you’ll get not one, but three dresses, all for free!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Hourglass and Physique
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
