Catching a Tropical Vibe

Tropical Vibes

Hello Fabulouses!  It was a chilly, dreary, rainy day where I am in RL, but I was lucky enough to be able to escape to SL and hang out on a warm, lush sim wearing what seemed like a golden ray of sunshine.  The best part was I picked up this frock as a free group gift.

How Wonderful Yellow Is

Featuring a sleeveless design, a high waistline and a full, floral skirt, the Sofia Summer Dress from Ma’De is so very pretty!  It provided just the spark I needed to brighten up my day.  Although you might think there are two shoulder straps because of the styling of my hair, there’s actually only one, which adds a bit of sauciness.  I really like the slight ruffle on the hemline and the folds in the fabric because they add visual interest and realism to the design.  To scoop up this mood-uplifting frock for your inventory, you need to be a member of the Teleport Hub group, which has a 10L join fee, but membership opens up the opportunity to pick up a plethora of free gifts across the grid.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Little Dove


A Little Dove

Hello Fab Free! I’m glad you’re here. Recently I decided to wander through The Free Dove. I feel like you never know what you might find. Sure enough I found this cute summer outfit by Fatal Fashion that is either new, or I’d probably just overlooked before. It comes with a mesh top, applier shorts, jewelry, sunglasses, and shoes (not worn).

This free outfit is waiting at The Free Dove in the Women’s section back near the wall with the hair. The necklace, bracelets, and sunglasses are all free from scripts which makes them low lag and able to be manually resized. The applier shorts come in 3 color choices, and the top is mesh with a few sizes. The shoes also come in a few different sizes. To get your copy of this cute eclectic (and free!) outfit you’ll need to be wearing The Free Dove’s group tag. The Free Dove group is free to join.

Top Sizes – Belleza, Maitreya, Slink
Shorts Appliers – Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Omega
Shoe Sizes – Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Here are the details!

In Search of the Archaic Picnic

In Search of the Arcane Picnic

I’m searching for the perfect place to have a picnic.  I’m also searching for the perfect person who may just enjoy preparing said picnic for me, because this girl is in the mood to be doted upon.  I’m good with all the simple things, you know – candied pheasant and pickled larks’ tongues.  Any random old not-in-fashion picnic foods will please me.  Simple, yes?  I don’t actually know what I’m talking about right now, it’s been a long week.  Just saying.

Springing Forward

My pretty little dress (perfect for picnics with historical trifles, if I may venture…err…or something) is actually completely free for group members over at Pacagaia.  There are two groups there – one free and one paid.  This dress is the group gift for the free Pacagaia group, which I think is super cute and spring-like.  It comes with an HUD with several different texture options, all more adorable than the last!  You can find both gifts on the wall behind the front desk.

Sizes

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Venus

Bunnies Reign

Reign have just sent out a cute little gift for group members as well!  These sparkly bunny running shoes are just so cute I could eat a jellied eel.  They come with a fairly extensive HUD so you can mix and match with all your outfits, as well as both flat and tip-toe versions.  To get your own (which come sized for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink), just join the Reign group for 250L and then take a peek into group notices for your copy.  Sweet!

Now, who has some blancmange for me?

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!

My Favourite Unicorn

My Favourite Unicorn

I know we spend a lot of time talking about fashion and Second Life, but the thing that keeps us always coming back for more is by far the friendships we make along the way.  The strange path of SL can bring you to loads of places, but one of the more pleasant paths brought me to my lovely friend Seraph, who happens to be my favourite unicorn of all time.  Seraph wrote to me a little while back, knowing my penchant for clothes and whispered into my ears of a really gorgeous gacha over at Kustom9 that I needed to take a look at.  Well she was exceedingly right (she’s a very sartorially-inclined unicorn), and we coordinated our forces to bring you all the details of this cuteness!

It’s the Kustom

So Seraph and I ambled our way over to Kustom9, and after just a few little clicks we both had complete outfits, including the hair!  At just 69L a pull it really is a cheap way to put a cute outfit together.  The tops with the jean jackets are super adorable, just use the enclosed alpha to make your arms disappear (or if you have a Maitreya body, it should do it automatically).  There are loads of skirts and tops and jackets to mix and match, and if you happen to get the rare hair (like we both did, after not too many tries) you get a fatpack of colours with the ability to change the colour of the little braids too.   The gacha comes in S, M or L as well as being sized for Maitreya bodies.  I can’t deal with all the cuteness!  Kustom9 is open until April 10th!

I hope you have a magical special someone in your Second Life, because I know that my little unicorn sure lights up my life!

Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ Into the Future

Bonjour

Bonjour, Fabulouses!  Real life has been super hectic lately.  It seems like it was just Friday and now all of a sudden it’s Wednesday!  Time is flying by.  I hope your week is going well.  Speaking of flying, I’m pedaling out to do some more hunting, but wanted to quickly share this outfit with you.  The pieces are separates, but to my eyes, they look like they were made to go together.  The best part is, my clothes only cost one little Linden dollar!

Think Pink

This adorable Bimi halter-style top in a bright raspberry hue is a free gift from Baby Monkey for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Featuring a high neckline and and a low cut back, this little number is ideal for those sultry late spring days ahead.   I really like the folds in the fabric and the way it hugs your curves and allows you to soak up the sun.  It is designed for a variety of mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate your Fab Free group tag, right click on the board and pay 1L, which will immediately be refunded to you along with the delivery of your gift.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

A Little Bit Boho

Ripley and I ventured along the trail of The Boho Hunt recently.  There are 34 stops along the way with prizes that cost 1 Linden dollar each.  Over at Horr Menswear, if you find the tiny white llama concealed in the shop, you can scoop up these cute little blue Monetta shorts for yourself.  They ride low on your hips and are packed with details such as rivets on the pockets and a bright pink wraparound belt, which coordinates beautifully with the Bimi crop top.  There’s something in this hunt prize for everyone, because versions for classic as well as mesh bodies are tucked inside the package.  The shorts are actually from Ambient Fashion, but they are hidden in Horr Menswear for the hunt.  The event runs until March 31, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing for yourself.

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
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking


Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking

Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m feelin’ a little nostalgic today. The new group gift hairstyle by No Match with it’s braided pigtails sticking strait out made me giggle, but it also reminded me of some of the female literary characters from my youth that I so admired. Girls such as Anne Shirley, Caddie Woodlawn, Laura Ingalls, and of course Pippi Longstocking all held a special place in my little-girl heart. I remember them being brave, intelligent, imaginative girls who knew who they were and what they wanted. It felt good to be reminded of them today. So inspired, I paired the youthful hairstyle with the striped sweater-dress Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East and ran with it. I hope you enjoy this fun look as much as I do.

The Hairstyle – This hairstyle by No Match is their current free group gift. Called No Socks, it really made me think of being little and barefoot in the springtime. It comes with a full fatpack of hair colors, and can be resized. Also included are system layer hair-bases, and a set of mesh head hair-base appliers (Omega, Lelutka, Catwa, TMP). You’ll need to wear the No Match group tag to get this gift. The current group join fee is 50 linden and there are quite a few past group gifts available on the second floor.

The Sweater Dress – I think it’s the stripes that made this off-the-shoulder sweater dress seem so youthful to me. It’s the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East. I could also see it paired with some tall boots. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 4 preset options, all of which are striped. To get your copy of this free gift just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Sevyn East. If you’re not a Fabulously Free in SL group member yet, you can join for free.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Where Flowers Bloom

Gathering Posies

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to the peaceful quiet of the Elvion sim today after traveling down the path of the Spring Fling Hunt.  My pretty floral frock happens to be one of the prizes that you can uncover in this hunt for just 1 Linden dollar.

Gathering Posies

The sweet springtime print scattered across a cream colored background on this hunt prize inspired my pose today.  It made me think of an enjoyable morning spent wandering through nature gathering wildflowers.  Featuring a sleeveless design and a hemline that falls to the upper thigh, this dress will help you usher in sunny, warm spring days.  Its full skirt is loosely gathered and offers casual comfort for day to day activities.  To add this little beauty to your inventory, simply teleport over to The Sissy Bar, locate the rose blossom hidden somewhere inside, and pay just one little Linden dollar.  If you get stumped, there is a handy hint giver in the shop.  Honestly, the pupster and I found the hunt object without any trouble at all, so this should be quick and easy for you, too.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Hello Fab Free. Today’s post is a little melancholy, though appropriately so. If you are, or ever were into EDM (Electronic Dance Music) you know who the man on Pru’s shirt. Keith Flint, probably best known for his work with the band Prodigy, took his own life early this week. Despite his often menacing appearance on stage, he has been described by those who knew him as a kindhearted soft-spoken gentile soul. Music will never be quite the same without his creative spark.

The designer behind the brand Beautiful Hustler has put out this top as a free group gift in tribute to the beloved singer, dancer, and front-man. The top comes in a single mesh size (not sure if it is fitted or standard), as well as mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Belleza (all), Tonic (all), and Slink (all) mesh bodies. The Beautiful Hustler group is free to join.

Also, Pru is wearing a recent limited time free group gift nose ring by PUNCH. This crescent-moon shaped piercing is technically rigged to fit the Catwa Catya head, however it fit Pru’s Genus Project Classic head without any issues. The piercing is free to all PUNCH group members, and the group is free to join.

Lastly I just wanted to put this out there, if you are feeling low, low enough that suicide sounds like a plausible option, please please please talk to someone. Anyone. Here is a link to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/ .

Here are the details for this look:

Head – GENUS Project – Genus Head – Classic Face
