Escaping That Heat Wave

Blue Stripes

Hello there, Fabulous Readers, and happy Middle of the Week to you!  I hope your week is going well.  It’s so very hot where I am in RL – we are looking at the highest temperature yet so far this year, with a cautionary heat advisory.  So, Ripley and I decided to escape to the shore in SL and cool down with the help of a salty sea breeze.  Of course, I just had to wear the brand new dress that I picked up for free.

Stripes Go With Everything

I just love the combination of navy with white stripes!  It is just such a classic look that never goes out of style.  My strapless Melanie Blue Stripes mini from Faida is sure to become a summertime favorite.  It’s designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body (no other sizes/styles included), and hugged my curves like a glove.  I decided to pull on a short denim jacket to ward off the dampness in the air, but I could just have easily worn the dress solo.  That way, my shoulders would have been free to soak up some sunshine.  The best part of all – the dress was a free gift just for members of the Teleport Hub group, which has a teensy 10L join fee.  It’s one of those groups that I joined long ago, and I’ve picked up so many gifts that the membership fee was well worth the investment.

I’m off for a stroll around the lovely La Vie sim with my best buddy, and will try to forget all about the RL heat wave.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Crossing That Bridge

Crossing That Bridge
Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  Thank goodness, it’s almost the weekend 🙂  It’s been a bit chilly where Ripley and I are in RL, and that has me longing for spring.  I found the perfect warmer-weather mini dress as a free group gift for members of the Mesh Body Friends Group.  When I saw the cerulean and white floral print, I knew it was just the thing to chase my winter blues away, so I immediately tapped the vendor and added Camila to my collection.

Crossing the Bridge from Winter to Spring

Well, I’ll be decked out in style and ready for that bridge if I ever *do* find it, thanks to TRS Deisgns!  With versions for mesh bodies, as well as classic avatars tucked inside the package, this cheerful little number is a versatile addition to your SL wardrobe.  I love the way it hugs my curves in all the right places.  The skinny spaghetti straps allow your shoulders to soak up some sun and a sexy slit in the side provides freedom of movement as well as a tantalizing glimpse of skin.  I opted to add a cropped denim jacket, but as the day warms up, I’m sure I will slip it off.  Since the Mesh Body Friends group is free to join, I was able to pick up this outfit with plenty of Linden dollars leftover for Ripley snacks, which made a certain someone wag his tail with delight!  The generous designer has a wall full of eleven other group gifts, so if you decide to scoop up a copy of this frock for yourself, be sure to check out all the offers.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Finding a Pearl

Where Time is Never Planned

Hello Fabulouses!  When Ripley and I visited Soul2Soul Bay, he befriended this little pup with a nose for a good book.  I couldn’t resist posing near the cute fella and snapping a quick photo.  Isn’t he adorable?

Pearly White Lace

My cream colored halter top today is part of a free gift offered by SnB Fashion to members of the Teleport Hub group.  I love the delicate lace layered over a solid white, bustier-styled top.  The package also includes a lacey skirt, but since the pupster and I were wandering up and down the beach, I opted to slip on a pair of faded blue jeans instead of the dressier skirt.  The gift contains sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh body versions of the outfit, so it’s quite versatile indeed.  The Teleport Hub group has a 10L join fee, but group membership makes you eligible for a plethora of gifts scattered around the grid, so your linden dollars are well-spent.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Dreaming of Infinity

Timeless

Hello Fabulouses!  Happy weekend to you!  Ripley and I found a sweet free mini dress to share with you today, and combined it with some budget-friendly accessories to create my look.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Covered With White Lace

The foundation for today’s outfit is the light and airy Lace Mini from AlmaMiranda.   The free, June gift for members of the AlmaMiranda group, this sexy little sleeveless number features a high collar and a creamy white hue.  It hugs all your curves and offers a tantalizing glimpse of skin.   If you are daring, you can just wear the dress alone.  It is a bit see-through, so I chose to don a lacey lingerie set underneath, and pulled on a cropped denim jacket to cover up.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Lace mini in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Infinity

The Finishing Touch

For my one piece of jewelry, I slipped on the Bento Infinity Ring from Misha Jesuil, which I discovered for the promotional price of only 10L on the Marketplace.  This simple, yet elegant thumb ring is designed only for Maitreya Bento hands and required no adjusting whatsoever.  I’m not sure how long this special price will last, so if you would like to scoop up this charming bauble for yourself, I’d recommend doing so soon.

I hope you find time for some rest, relaxation, and shopping therapy for yourself this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Finding Harmony

Dreaming With Open Eyes

Hello Fabulouses!  Ripley and I decided to stick close to home today and see if we could round up a budget-friendly Fabulous Find from my comfortable (well, kind of) computer chair.  Hmmm.  I wonder if we could find a really cushy computer chair on the Marketplace, too…  I certainly hope so!

Hugging Those Curves

For the promo price of only 10L, I purchased this snowy white, flirty number from M’Encanta’s marketplace store.  I love the way the Feline Dress is adorned with intricate embroidery on the bodice.  The silhouette-skimming cut is sure to flatter any figure.  It features slender spaghetti straps, and vertical piping that emphasizes the length of your torso and draws the eyes upward.

What’s Included:

  • Fitted mesh for classic avatars in S, M, L, XL
  • Fitted Mesh for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Just a Little Cover Up

Although soft spring temperatures aren’t too far away, I felt I needed a light coat to offer a bit of protection from the elements, so Ripley and I returned to scouring the Marketplace.  We found the perfect little windbreaker for only 50L from Paintbox Designs.  The Harmony Denim Jacket in dark blue provided a lovely contrast against the creamy hue of my frock, and kept my arms and shoulders shielded from chilly breezes.  Its cropped length complemented my dress, and provided warmth without overpowering my form-fitting attire.

A Hunting We Will Go

Just as I finished typing up my post, I heard a jingling sound behind me.  I turned to see the pupster trotting toward me with his tracking harness clutched in his mouth.  That can only mean one thing – a post filled with hunt goodies will soon be on the way.  Wish me luck!  Until my next post, happy shopping!
