You Give Me Butterflies

You Give Me Butterflies 1
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you are in the midst of a relaxing weekend as Ripley and I are!  After reading Love’s post {HERE} about the new update for Slink hands, I teleported right over to Slink, tapped the re-delivery terminal, and scooped up the latest release.  Thank you for the tip, Love!  I then picked up a few Bento-friendly poses on the Marketplace, and decided to incorporate the 60L “Touch” pose from Kiss Me Poses in my main photo for today’s post.  I added the butterflies, which were an old gotcha prize from Cubic Cherry, and the effect was very picturesque.

Say Yes to the Mini Dress

My dress today is a free group gift from Pacagaia Creations called the Ginna Harness dress.  Although the join fee is 100L, a versatile texture change HUD is included with the March gift, and there are 7 other freebies on the wall of the store for group members.  I love the strappy detailing on this sexy Ginna dress, and the subtle sheen of its texture.  With realistic folds and creases, this curve-hugging number draws the eye to all the right places.  Although the windlight setting and reflections I used for my snapshot make it look like there is purple in the dress, it truly is a lovely shade of green (you can get a glimpse of the true color in the photo below), in honor of St.  Patrick’s Day.  If you don’t want to sport a foresty hue, there are a number of other options in the color change HUD included in the gift box.  You can set the straps and body of the dress the same color as I have done, or you can use a contrasting texture for the straps to make the design really pop.   For the body of the dress, there are of 8 solid colors or two patterns in the HUD, while the straps have 10 texture options.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, TMP and Venus
  • Mesh for classic avatars in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Texture HUD for customizing the straps and body of dress separately

I found a sweet pair of shamrock earrings in the Stylovely shop on the Marketplace for only 5L.  Even though St. Patrick’s Day has passed, I will still periodically wear these little lovelies in the hope that they might bring me some of the luck of the Irish.  I really like their detailed texture, and the way they dangle gently from my earlobes.

To Toe…

With delicate straps and sparkling gemstones, these free Sandra heels from ChicChica added plenty of glam to my outfit.  Designed for Slink mid feet, they are ornate enough to be paired with an elegant gown, yet coordinate beautifully with the more casual frock I chose to don today.  They are a special free gift to celebrate St. Patricks’ Day, and I’m not sure how much longer they will be set out, so if you want to claim a pair for your own, don’t delay.  I’d suggest heading on over to ChicChica as soon as possible.

That’s a Wrap

I hope you enjoyed my green-themed outfit for today.  Ripley and I will be on the look out for another Fabulous Find to share with you soon.  Until my next post…..happy shopping!

Sprinter -.-

Snapshot_002
Hi there Fabulouses!  While winter and spring duke it out in my part of the RL world today with snow falling, and green things wanting to grow, I thought I’d just go back inside while they sort it out and tell you about a few things I found this week :).

My cozy sprinter (spring + winter) outfit was put together with three group gifts that I picked up here and there across the grid.  Hopefully you’ll find something you like within my look and go pick it up for yourself.

It’s As Easy As 1, 2, 3 And FREE!

  1. SWEATER: My Oversize Knit Sweater is super cute with my hands tucked into it, and is available in a Maitreya Mesh Body size (will probably work with others too using the alpha hud that comes with your mesh body) as a free group gift at Scandalize.  This group is free to join and there are a ton of other gifts to pick up in the VIP area upstairs.
  2. JEANS:  I picked these dark washed, extra torn Applier Jeans up as a free group gift at Pacagaia Creations as a free Third Life Group Gift.  This group is 10L to join, but well worth it!  These appliers will work with tons of different mesh body types (sorry, no system layers).
  3. BOOTS:  Belle Epoque is where you will find the adorable laced Liesel Boots you see me wearing in today’s post as a free group gift to celebrate 1500 inworld group members!  This group is currently free to join as well.  I have seen it with a fee before, so don’t quote me that it will stay that way.

Enjoy the rest of your day!!

Catching up with SL F&O

Hello again my dears! I know all of you guys who already knew about (and love) Second Life Frees and Offers must be laughing at me for my new found enthusiasm. What a great group! I’ve been running around collecting the fantastic gifts all day. Happily, many of the designers leave their gifts out for longer than a week so some of my picks here are actually the last round’s finds. First up is a ‘new to me’ designer:  Precious Designs
sfl&71_001

This is the “Come with me” dress. I love the flirty flippy skirt and the print is just wonderful. Precious Designs has a bunch of SL F&O gifts and group gifts out at their main store. Everything I saw was just a pretty and well made as this cute little dress. You can also see Lumae’s SL F&O gift here: the Alaska Skin in Mulled wine. The beautiful skin comes in two colors: Honey and Cocoa. The Alaska Skin is one of the December SL F&O gifts I was talking about. So if you want it, be sure to hurry over to Lumae.

The “High Tied’ boots and the “Leila” hair are the big stars of this next look. The boots come from Like Design and I love them. I like that they are a silvery black or charcoal rather than just a solid black. It really sets them apart. These too are a December gift still available at the main store.
My wild hair is the real show stopper. “Leila” is a limited edition color pack made for the A&A Anniversary by Alice Project. The pack has five colors. Each color has the same blue and pink locks with different colored ‘roots’. The root colors are black, brown, blonde, and natural red as well as the white.

So put your SL F&O tag on, my dears and head out.  🙂

Updated to add – I’m really sorry, guys but the High Tied boots are no longer the SL F&O gift for Like Designs. They have an new ( and equally awesome ) pair of shoes.

An Afternoon with SLF&O

Late Afternoon

Hello lovies, I hope you’ve been having a fabulous day! I have to admit, mine has been pretty darn good, especially when you consider these great SLF&O gifts I snagged to make up my outfit. Needless to say I spent most of my Second Life afternoon shopping and checking things out. Believe it or not, there are times when I Honestly do like to get all dressed up and go out for no one else, just myself.

Just about everything Pru is wearing is absolutely FREE when you wear your Second Life Frees & Offers tag. The group is FREE to join, and that’s all there is to it. This cute slouchy sweater dress is the FREE SLF&O gift at Pacagaia Creations. Though I chose to wear sandals with the dress, I think it would be just as cute with boots. The color and style of this dress make it a really versatile piece.

Speaking of shoes, how cute are these strappy wedge sandals? I think they are adorable. They are the FREE SLF&O gift at KC Couture. The best part is, the gift also includes a taupe colored pair. The shoes are meant to be worn with Slink “high” feet. As a card-carrying member of Shoe Addicts Anonymous, I had to have them!

I had my dress, the shoes, next came the purse. This sweet clutch is from Tchelo’s, and is also a FREE SLF&O gift. As shown in the photo below, the clutch comes in 3 color variations. It’s also posed so you’ll carry the bag a bit more naturally, though I’ll admit some of my ao animations cancelled out the purse animation. Either way, it’s one seriously cute clutch.

Already I’ve mentioned my shoe addiction, fortunately shoes were not the only addiction I was able to feed with my shopping trip! Genesis Creations has out this beautiful skin as their current SLF&O FREE gift. I really cannot say anything negative about it. I love the thick brows, and those deep red lips! The skin includes several brow color options, cleavage options, and appliers for Slink Hands, Slink Feet, Cute & Phat Azz, as well as Lolas Tango. Even if you only wore it once, it’s worth the effort to get such a pretty skin with so many appliers and options for FREE!

Lastly, it’s rare that I am without some sort of tattoo. Today was no exception. I picked up this dainty little crown tattoo at Bohocomo. The tattoo is located upstairs in their main store, and it too is a FREE SLF&O gift, so don’t forget to wear that tag! Bohocomo is a new-to-me store, and I think I’ll be visiting there again soon! There were also a few group gifts and dollarbies you might want to check out while you’re there picking up this crown tattoo.

Alright, I hope you enjoy this look as much as I do. Here are the details, Enjoy!
