Sunday Casual

Sunday Bridges

It’s casual Sunday for me… and though this outfit I picked up as the latest group gift from Tiffany Designs is hardly ordinary, it’s just dressy enough to be called business casual. It includes a pair of slacks and a sweater with a geometric design on it, both in all the standard mesh sizes. You’ll also get a pair of shoes for system feet, though I opted to wear my own in the picture above.

The Tiffany’s group is 100L to join, but after joining you’ll have access to this gift as well as four other past group gifts for men that are still out. You can see two that were previously blogged [Here] and [Here]. So you definitely get your money’s worth. You’ll need to pay the vendor 1L to get the gift, but that is immediately refunded to you.

Have a great Sunday afternoon!

Ready for Rain

Ready for Rain

It’s Sunday instead of Friday, but I am bringing you Friday news! And I’m ready for a little rain to wash away the weekend blues. Sometimes rain is refreshing you know?🙂

First… this is a head to toe look. So HURRY over to Elikatira, where you will find that their Fifty Linden Friday offering of hair that I’m wearing in the picture above in essential colors is still out. For just 50L this pretty mesh hair is yours! But hurry! I’m not sure how much more time you have before the offer will disappear!

My jumpsuit is courtesy of FineRain Creations, and is their contribution to the Women’s Stuff Hunt. Stop by the main-store and for 1L and a little hunting time, this outfit in all the standard mesh sizes in this pretty yellow gold color is yours! It fits and flows beautifully and comes with a great alpha layer for standard bodies.

Last, but not least, I found a pair of shoes I loved at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes. These too are a 1L Hunt gift. These are the store’s offering for the Addicted to Applier’s Hunt. Just hunt down the icon and buy it for 1L. You’ll get these stunning black alligator heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

The Keys to Paniolo

The Keys to Paniolo

Astrid made her way to the Cart Wash Sale this morning and she didn’t have to twist my arm hard to convince me that I should head there myself to see what there was to see. It turned out to be well worth my time. There was a plethora of things for gentlemen to choose from, and it was hard to pick something to show you fellas first.

I finally decided on this Paniolo Outfit in grey by Roped Passion’s. (If grey is not your color, don’t stress… the cart also had it out in blue, brown, and green.) This outfit comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh and the shirt and shorts are two separate pieces with excellent included alphas if you are using a system body. At only 10L for a full outfit, you just can’t go wrong.

And Ladies… don’t shy away from this Cart. There were goodies there for you as well!

Morning Java

Morning Java

Paisley Daisy is one of my favorite places to pick up the monthly VIP group gift. And June’s gift is just gorgeous. I stopped by this morning and nabbed this two piece pants suit in red (it comes in all the standard mesh sizes) with its flowing flexi side sash and thought that with a good set of heels and some bangle bracelets, I would be ready to take on the world with a great cup of Java… which is how I ended up at the latest art installation Sim — Entropy III — which is… you guessed it… the inside of a giant coffee cup! Well worth visiting some Second Life morning, if I don’t say so myself!

My pretty bangle bracelets by Paddling Melody are a fabulous FREE find on the marketplace, and what I really love best about these is the versatility. When you open the box you’ll find that you can wear each single bracelet separately, or the whole kit and caboodle as one set. The bracelets are just set to wear on the right arm… so if you want to wear them on both arms, as I have in the photo above, you’ll want to make a copy of the set and “attach to” your avatar’s left forearm and edit into place, and voila!

My shoes really are worth mentioning… even if they are over our 75L price tag limit. I had stopped by the Arcade Gacha event to take a look around for new hair and fell in love with these amazing heels by Azoury. They are 100L per spin, but each spin gets you a set of heels that will fit Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, or TMP feet. Azoury are unique and high quality shoes, so if you can spare the Linden to give this machine a spin, you might want to give it a go.

Morning Java 1

My last stop was at the Clawtooth Gacha at the Arcade Gacha, where I picked up my new pretty hairstyle. There are two styles in the machine… the one I am showing you in the picture above called Zosia which is a shorter style. There was also a longer style called Jolene in the gacha machine. Both are really beautiful on, and at only 75L per spin, these are a really good deal.

Back in the Groove

Groove

I finally felt like I had gotten back into my groove yesterday… just in time to discover a really great new gift at Entice! The outfit you see me wearing in the picture above is the Third Life group gift courtesy of Entice! Just wear your Third Life group tag (don’t worry, the group is FREE to join) and this gorgeous pair of floral jeans and this pretty top is yours FREE! The outfit comes in all the standard sizes for a great fit.

Since I was feeling playful, I visited Heavenly Groove. Yup, that’s the name of the sim. I have to give props to the gorgeous location… since the props gave me poses😉 And like I said I was back in my groove. At least for now!

Love Prismatically

Love Prism 1

I’m hot on the trail of hunt deals, and I broke into some prismatically detailed outfits at Prism Designs! Prism Designs is participating in two great hunts with two amazing gifts, and you will want to nab them both up!

For just 1L you can love this Love Hunt gift outfit called Chenae Leather Jacket and Dress. The dress and jacket are two different pieces and can be worn separately or together for a stunning and unique look either way! Each piece comes in all the standard mesh sizes and the dress has a great plunging cut out back with a fabulous geometric print that really catches the eye.

Love Prism

I wasn’t done hunting down the goods though, and picked up this great outfit called Odelia while still at Prism for FREE. It is part of the Loving Kind Hunt and includes both the mesh pants and the mesh sweater, again in all the standard mesh sizes with great geometric prints to really set them apart from your standard fare. Well worth hunting down the little red heart and popping it into your wardrobe!

Death Before Decaf

Death Before Decaf

It’s been a long time since I’ve been “hunting” in Second Life, but this is my personal favorite season for hunts. The Autumn Effect Hunt started recently, and I’m really excited about the items I’ve come across thus far. The Autumn Effect Hunt is a FREE hunt, and there are items for the men as well as the ladies. So far one of my favorite TAE hunt prizes is this fun fall outfit from The Little Bat.

I adore bats, they are part of classic Halloween iconography. Though I’ll tell you, I’d wear bat-themed clothing year-round without hesitation! This cute sweater from TLB is fully mesh and includes the needed alpha for classic avatars. I had no issue wearing it with my Matreya Lara body. Also included in the FREE TAE hunt gift from TLB are these rust-red colored corduroys. In my mind, corduroys are to fall fashion what bats are to Halloween, making this combo a perfect fall outfit, though you could wear each piece separately. Also fully mesh, these pants come in the usual standard sizes and have a matching alpha layer.

One of the many things I like about fall is the fact that it’s cool enough for me to enjoy hot coffee no matter what time of day it is. I’m not one who can drink hot coffee during the day in the summer, it just makes me melt, and not in a good way. This fun coffee cup is the FREE TAE hunt prize at Reckless. It’s my new favorite accessory. The cup is animated with a drinking animation, and includes a color/texture change hud. The hud allows you to change the cup and lid colors between black and white, and it allows you to change the texture of the cardboard sleeve. The option shown reads “Death Before Decaf” which I think should be my motto on some days! There is a second option (not shown) that reads ” If Loving Pumpkin Spice Makes Me A Basic Bitch, Then A Basic Bitch I’ll Be “, and I have to admit it made me giggle.

Okay, I’ll admit it, there needed to be a better photo of these hauntingly pretty eyes from Arise. They are the FREE TAE gift at Arise. These pale peachy-copper colored eyes come with a standard eye layer, and optional mesh eyes. Every once in a while I enjoy wearing an eye color that is a major departure from what one might consider normal. The second I saw these, I had to show them. They are beautiful and give a truly unique look.

Alright Fab Free, here are the details, Happy Hunting!

Get Some Swag at Swank

Swank Event

It’s mid-week Fab Free, we’re a little more than half way to the weekend! I bet you can guess how I like to celebrate? That’s right, shopping! In the virtual sea of events happening in Second Life right now, I decided to spend a little time at the Swank Event. This event has a fun French theme for September, and each of the vendors has out a FREE gift just for stopping by. Some of the gifts require the Swank group tag, but not to worry, the group is FREE to join. This event is big enough to have a little something for everyone but not so big that it’s overwhelming.

While I picked up several of the gifts, this gorgeous outfit by LaVain & Co. is my favorite. This fully mesh outfit includes the pretty floral tank top with its daring neckline and the matching black pants. Each piece can be worn separately as well as together. I also snagged this cute little clutch by Vanessa. I’ve discovered that my real life purse obsession has started to transfer over into Second Life, and I was glad to add this one to my collection.
