Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


At the Meadow’s Edge

Meadow's Edge

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m super excited to share a lovely dress that I picked up as a free group gift. This full length frock is striking and chic – perfect for a fancy evening or just a stroll along the meadow to collect some flowers.

Timeless Elegance

The Dora Dress from Virtue features a strapless bodice, a sleek fit, and a coordinating bow to accentuate your waist.  Its coral hue is soft and flattering to the complexion.  This beauty hugs your curves, yet has a slight flare at the hemline to make movement easy-peasy.  I love the simple design, which allows you the opportunity to embellish with accessories to your heart’s content, or to keep things more minimalistic and polished.  To add Dora to your wardrobe, you need to be a member of the Third Life group, which has a 10L join fee, but members can gather gifts from a variety of merchants across the grid, so it’s well worth the cost.

  • Mesh in S, M, L (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • eBody
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus

Until next time, happy shopping!

Uptown Girl

Uptown Girl

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to meet a friend for coffee at this shop in the City of Templemore.  With my companion running late, I had plenty of time to snap a photo of my latest outfit to share with you all.

Sleek and Elegant

My entire outfit today, with the exception of the boots and cell phone, are free gifts from Rowne.  The Alla Crepe Top and Xinyu Trousers brought to mind a sophisticated, uptown girl look (tune).  I like the high waist of the pants, and the short cropped top, which left one arm bare while the opposite was encased in a full-length sleeve.  I thought it made for an interesting visual contrast.  The pants emphasized my long, slender figure, and at first, I had a hard time finding footwear that would work with them.  My slink feet and shoes poked through far above the hemline of the trousers, and I couldn’t adjust where they attached on my legs.  Uh-oh…

An Uh-Oh Followed by a Sigh of Relief

After adjusting my hover height to be slightly above the ground, I dug down deep in my inventory, and found some old-style boots that I could adjust and slide down to the bottom of the cuffs of the trousers.  It worked like a charm, and I was quite pleased with the outcome. Unfortunately, when I went to include the landmarks for my post, I discovered that the boots in my full-body shot were no longer available.  I did, however, find an alternate pair from Blackburns (shown in the close up picture below) that worked just as well, and these were only 29L on the Marketplace!  Phew!

An Entire Outfit, But That’s Not All…

In addition to the pantsuit, Rowne also has the Jane Cat Eye Sunglasses, Bon Bon Earrings, and Buckett bag set out as free gifts for group members.  I felt they all coordinated beautifully, so I combined them in one look.  The end result:  classy sophistication!  Although the group has a 350L join fee, the numerous gifts available balance out the initial expense.

What’s Included in All the Gifts:  

  • Alla Crepe Crop Top and Xinyu Crepe Trousers fit for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique
  • Buckett Bag (with two pose options)
  • Cat Eye Sunglasses in Onyx (they were originally on top of my head; I edited them to be on my face)
  • PW BonBon earrings in Lilac (shown) and Hunter

Here’s a close up of the Blackburn boots.  They’re cute, aren’t they?

Well, that’s a wrap!  Until my next post, happy shopping!
