Sparkle and Shine

Blog coming soon to FabFreeHey there Fab Friends!  The other day, when I posted about a 60L special at Siss Boom, I mentioned that I was actually going in to pick up the new group gift!

Well here she is…

The Fireside Formal Mum Gown is the latest addition to the very large selection of group gifts at Siss Boom which you can find right at the entrance in the VIP shelf.  This is a real keeper for me as I am in love with both the design and the shimmery silver texturing.  It will fit you like a glove on the following mesh bodies…

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP

This group does have a bit of a steep join fee at 500L, but seriously…  tons of really high quality gifts to snag including formal wear, casual wear, lingerie and even footwear and accessories.  Join it – and stay in it!

ps.  (hangs head) and be careful not to accidentally leave it when you are checking the join fee like I did…  I may have to pay to rejoin! lol

Get Moving!

BelleEGGThey say “Home is where the heart is”, but which one of these boxes did I pack it in??

Hey there Fabulouses! One of the many cool things about Second Life is that you can pick up your entire home at the drop of a hat and go from a beach bungalow to a mountain chalet or New York studio, or where ever your heart desires…  Even a tree house or a cave if you like!  You don’t even have to change locations if you don’t want to, you can just pick it all up, and put something new down.  If only it was that easy in real life!

Enough Babbling Love, What ARE You Wearing?

My casual fall outfit today was put together with a couple of new goodies I came across this week – which was perfect timing, because they look great together!

You can pick up the LFE Leonie Sweater I am wearing today for just 10L in several mesh body sizes on the marketplace, and in fact…  if you do a little browsing through their marketplace listings, you’ll find that you can pick up the same sweater in several prints for just 10L each.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

What goes better with a cozy sweater than some fuzzy warm boots?

Not much, and you can find the Mina Boots as a free group gift at Belle Epoque with a 10L join fee.  These boots will fit any kind of mesh avatar using their alpha huds and may work with the system body too if you happen to have the right alpha layer already in your inventory (alpha layer not incuded).  You will not only find the gorgeous brown colour I am wearing, but all of the following colours in your gift folder!

Boot Colours:

  • Black
  • Brown
  • Coffee
  • Navy
  • Olive
  • Wine

Bringing a Bit of Summer Into Fall

The Last Leaves
Hello Fabulouses!  When I saw Love’s post {HERE} saying that some displays at The Cart Wash are already set up, Ripley and I teleported on over to check things out.  I always look forward to the sales at the Wash, and with this being the 10th anniversary, I was super excited!  My first stop was the Baci Shop display where I happily discovered this lovely green sweater dress set out as a free gift.

The Last Leaves of Summer

I have to admit, although I always love to see the arrival of autumn, I quickly miss the lush foliage of summer.  With this figure-hugging frock in a lovely green-ombre color scheme, I’ll be able to carry the hues of summer right along with me as time marches on.   I love the way the Last Leaves Dress is packed with realistic knitted details from the ribbed cuffs to the diamond shaped pattern surrounded by cabled rows.  The long sleeves will be sure to keep me toasty warm while the folded down collar offers a sexy peek at my shoulders.   Since the gift package includes sizes for classic as well as mesh avatars, it’s bound to have just the right fit for you.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Time to Get in Some Cart Wash Shopping Therapy

The pupster and I are eager to explore the streets of The Wash to see what other Fabulous Finds we can discover.  We will be back very soon with more budget-friendly fashions to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Bright Eyes, Blue Denim

Snapshot_004Well hello there Fabulouses!  He’s stuck at work on this glorious warm spring day, while I have the day off ;).   Of course I’d rather we had the day off together, but I decided I’d try and make the best of it and head out to the park nearby this afternoon to enjoy the splendors of spring that I have been so missing over the long winter, like the smell of green grass, and flowers.. and the tickle of butterflies!

While I have your attention here, I have some exciting free hair news today as well as a little tidbit to share with you about a sweet summer denim dress I found as a group gift.

The Astonishing Truth

I’m sure you don’t need me to say it again… but I will… I’m a big fan of Truth Hair.  I wear it quite often on the blog, and inworld.  I was so excited to see that with his new group gift for May called Kare, he has updated his textures with more gloss and shine and has also included a Hairstylist HUD that allows you to shift the hair around your shoulders a few different ways – which is fantastic because there will be no more interfering with collars and jackets!!  This group has a one time fee of 350L to join, but seriously…  a whole fatpack of awesome hair every month…  Nuff said!

Never underestimate the power of a little denim dress

It’s a little tough to see in the photo above, so I took a few minutes and snapped another angle so you could see the Camilla Dress in Sky Denim that you can pick up as a free group gift at TRS Designs.  This group is free to join and there are multiple gifts to score.

Sizes included:

  • XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • TMP

Stranded

Just 'Cause She's a Girl...

Hello Fabulouses.  Do any of you know if the SL version of AAA services tractors?  In RL, I’ve run out of gas, had a dead battery, and locked my keys in the car.  Every time, the AAA rep arrived like a knight in shining armor, and saved me.  However, today…. I don’t think that will be the case.  😦 After Ripley and I returned from our trip, a friend of mine called, saying he needed help with plowing his field.  When I saw the rusted condition of his tractor, I glanced at him dubiously. “The tank is full,” he said.  My eyebrow raised.  “I just tuned it up,” he said.  Both eyebrows raised.  “Nothing to worry about,” he said.  Famous.  Last.  Words.   She did start up like a charm, I’ll grant him that, but after one trip around the field, with a shudder and a cough, she just….gave….up.  No amount of coaxing, no amount of promises of Ripley snacks, no amount of helpless pounding on the steering wheel worked.  I was stranded.

Pretty as a Pin Up

Well, if I have to be stuck with a stubborn, tired old tractor, at least I look glamorous in my Retro Pin Up Outfit from Meli Imako.  With a vintage, knotted checkered top, and fitted denim capris, this adorable number makes me feel like a sexy, fifties pin up girl.  I love the detail the designer put into this creation such as the slightly puffed sleeves, buttons on the shirt, and the pocket accents on the pants.  This outfit is the featured free January gift at Meli Imako’s Marketplace store because it earned the most likes on the designer’s Facebook page.  I’d have to agree with all the votes……it’s a great choice!

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in 5 sizes:  XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh
  • Appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Hourglass, EBody and Tonic

Put Your Red Shoes On

I admit it, my heels are in no way practical for driving a tractor around a field, but they called my name.  As soon as I saw the Cinzia pumps fat pack featured in the KC Couture Marketplace store for only 75L, I knew they had to be mine.  Constructed of rigged mesh, these classic heels have a timeless elegance which totally complemented my retro ensemble.  A 30 color texture HUD makes these shoes extremely versatile.  You can customize them to go with any outfit.   These stilettos require mesh feet, and fit Slink High, Maitreya, Belleza and the Eve Mesh Body.  I wouldn’t recommend wearing them for a day of plowing, but hey, it’s SL!  Where else could I drive a tractor and walk around in muddy, scrubby fields, and never mar my shoes?

Speaking of Walking…

I don’t think help will arrive any time soon.  It’s time for this girl to save herself, and hoof it on back to civilization.  I’ve got a pup at home who is probably worried sick about me.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
