Flamingos and Squids

Flamingos and Squids

In preparation

It’s been a pretty long week for me IRL and with all signs, unfortunately, pointing to things getting more chaotic in the coming days, I turned to my Second Life and popped into the Baja Norte sim for some a much-needed breather. There’s still something calming about seagulls swooping about amidst the cresting waves, even though it’s just only in a virtual world. I had something skimpier in mind for this outing (hmm…come to think of it I’ve never actually worn a swimsuit to any of the beach sims I’ve visited), but a stop to Creator’s Collection Box changed my mind. Unlike Carson, who came away with one killer look, I quickly picked up the gift at the S@bbia booth. From its quirky print (flamingos are just adorable birds don’t you think?) to its pretty bowed sash, the (aptly named) Flamingo dress is simply darling.

The gift comes in only one mesh size, however, and without an alpha layer included. While arguably it’ll be easier for those with mesh bodies to find a fit thanks to their nifty alpha huds, I experimented with some of the alpha layers of other dresses that I already owned and found a good fit. Personally, I feel that the Flamingo dress was worth the effort especially when you take into consideration that it does come with a hud that lets you switch the dress between three colors (blue, red and white) technically making it three free dresses. Be sure to do a little more exploring if you visit this 2nd Anniversary round of Creator’s Collection Box as the majority of booths have great free gifts out.

A good pair of clogs

Seeing as I wanted to be able to dip my toes in the water or wriggle them in the warm sand, fussy boots or heels just wouldn’t do for this latest adventure. The sneakers had to stay at home too because who wants to spend their time cleaning sand out from the soles of their damp sneakers (yuck!). Luckily enough I came across a free fatpack of clogs from A&D Clothing and my footwear problems were quickly solved. These cute clogs are a sub-o gift at the store meaning that you won’t need to join any groups or free up those precious group slots to get your hands on them. Better yet this gift is unisex (that ‘special’ dude won’t have any excuses not to join you at the beach now) and can be worn with classic avatar feet (alpha layer and shoe base included). Did I mention that this gift is a fatpack? Well, you’ll also be getting a hud which lets you choose among twelve different colors with a section that’s dedicated to resizing tools as well. I’m still pretty tickled that I found this design in SL seeing as I’ve a couple of pairs of these out of the virtual world and see them all over the place besides. When do we get to choose the charms hmm?

Flamingos and Squids

So squids were mentioned

And here they are in the form of a cute pair of earrings from Frangipani Garden that’s also available as a free gift at Creator’s Collection Box. While I’m fully aware that you’re supposed to eat seafood and not wear it, these Takosan earrings were just too cute to pass up. The detailing on these earrings are amazing as is the subtle difference in the expressions between Mr. and Ms. Squid (well, I assume they’re Mr and Ms). While a resizer script is absent, permissions on these earrings are set to modify and copy so you can make as many backups as you like before making those changes if need be. Creator’s Collection Box runs until the 18th of next month so hurry down.

A sweet face

There’s a new group gift out at WoW Skins! I always look forward to the frequent gifts from this store and was pretty excited to unbox Preziosa. She has a slightly more mature look to her, I feel but still, has that sweet look and glossiness that are hallmarks of the WoW Skins. The neutral tones of the makeup on Preziosa are simply perfect. The gift package includes:

  • Two system skins in the Tan tone (one with cleavage and one without)
  • Omega applier hud for Head and Body

Other skin tones are available for purchase at the WoW Skins main store at a discounted price of 199L and it is 450L to join the group if you’re not already a member. Of course joining the group will mean access to the group only Lucky Letter and Midnight Mania boards that are always stuffed with goodies.

And that’s a wrap. I’ve got a sudden craving for takoyaki and hmm…where do I get some? Till later.

EDIT: Thanks to Ariel Starflare, I’ve been informed that there is now an alpha layer for the dress. Us classic avatars can rejoice!

Falling for Sweaters

Coming soon to FabFree

The days are getting shorter, and the air is getting cooler (allegedly, unless you live in a southern climate like me :P).  It’s my favorite time of the year, cute and cozy sweater weather!  I’m in love with this Halloween-y sweater dress group gift from S@BBiA (free to join).  To round out the outfit, I added pieces from Sn@tch’s 7 Seas Fishing outfit, Coven.  Shown here are the boots, leggings, earrings and choker necklace.  (If you would like to see the rest, check out Love’s Post!).  You will need a 7 Seas fishing pole to get these items.  They start at $100 L, and are worth the investment!
Coming soon to FabFree

My favorite outfits in Second Life are definitely the ones I can see myself wearing in real life, and I would wear this one everyday!

The day is so windy my cute dot parasol gift from W-ZERO may get blown away, it includes a hold pose. Tho I am actually using the gift poses from J’dore instead.

Each store link will take you directly to that stall tho its a small event and worth the walk around to grab all the gifts.

Pretty in Pastel

Snapshot_001

Good evening Fabulous readers and Happy Monday!  Just because it’s autumn doesn’t mean you have to put away all of your lighter coloured fashion!  I know I usually gravitate towards warmer hues for fashion this time of year, but I managed to find a couple things to put together my sweet snuggly warm pastel look today.

Check out this adorable pink Frill Top I found on a group lucky board at S@bbia!  You do need to join the group to take advantage of this offer, however the group is free to join, so no biggie, right?

My Heart Glasses are a new free subscribe gift at C’est La Vie that you can obtain by becoming a new subscriber.  If you are already in the subscribomatic and missed this gift, simply unsub and resub to have the gift auto sent to you.  These glasses also come with a texture change hud!

Spring has Sprung

Good afternoon, Fabulous Folks! Here on this side of the world Spring is just bursting everywhere. My RL garden is showing signs of perking up and I found buds on the hyacinths. Keeping with the Spring theme, the eMESHED into Spring Hunt is all about the season.

Spring has Sprung

I love it when I find fun things to scatter around in my SL garden. This is the Blooming bench from Adorably Strange Wares. It comes with all the pots and flowers and the tea set and the little yellow bird all as one easy piece. Perfect to brighten up a corner of the garden.  Loordes of London has provided the perfect outfit for brightening up the garden. This is the Messina Bell dress in sweet pastel shades. The matching ‘Jubilee’ earrings are included in the Hunt prize.

eMESHed 3

These cute little slip on mules aren’t part of the Hunt but they matched up with the dress so well I wanted to show them off. These are the ‘Wedge Mule Blue’ from S@bbia for system feet. I found these on the ‘Guess and Win’ board at S@bbia‘s main store for 0L and a lucky guess. There are several prizes on the board including the mules and all of them are worth the guessing.

Don’t let the season pass you by, the eMESHED into Spring Hunt only runs until April 15th!

5000 Thanks yous

loft_001

I took a break from organizing and photographing the ginormous Fantasy Gacha Carnival finds to run around a bit… play some lucky boards, catch up on the group gifts.  No luck on the lucky boards but I did find a new handbag at S@bbia on the group board. The bag comes with a color changer for four wardrobe choices. Score!

Now I have a new handbag… I need a new outfit to go with it, right?  I popped over to Prism and found just the thing.  This perfect-for-Fall sweater, skirt and leggings combo is up at Prism as a free 5000 Thank you gift to the Group members! Prism’s Group, it is free to join and the gifts are left up for a generous length of time. You can still grab the multiple sets back in the group gifts area. Plus, Prism has several Hunts running AND has an extensive Discount area.
Hope you Fab Folks are having a great Saturday!
