Classy Dame

Classy Dame

Everyone needs a good bunch of classic items for their wardrobe.  Even me, the girl who loves bodysuits, pastel hair and thigh high boots.  Sometimes you just gotta dress it up all classic-like and be respectable and such!

Boss Time

I found this very appropriate, yet modern look that will take you from work to cocktails in no time.  And of course, it’s FREE!  I picked up the Donna pants and shirt at No Name by joining their group for free.  The shirt comes with an HUD that allows you to change to six satiny colours.  You can wear the top and pants separately, which will expand your outfit opportunities greatly!  This outfit comes in XXS – L with an Alpha Layer.

Hair Flair

There are several new lucky boards up at Olive, making the total opportunities for a new ‘do rocket up to 12!  Yep, 12 different boards – 12 different styles for all your hair needs.  You don’t even need to join a group, just a little luck and patience.  I was lucky enough to grab the long, blonde “White Rabbit” hair for free which I’m feeling quite luxurious in!  Go get ’em!

I think my work here is done, so now time for that cocktail!

Lush Lunch

Lush Lunch

Do you remember those TV shows back in the early 2000s about groups of girlfriends, sitting around and having lunch in a posh restaurant in New York City, or perhaps sipping on sour apple martinis while laughing about the craziness of life?  My lifestyle clearly doesn’t really lend to drinking martinis during the lunch hour in RL, but when it comes to SL, it’s all about gadding about town, and pulling up at a fancy restaurant to have whatever food I so desire…

Oh You Fancy

I needed the perfect outfit for my imaginary lunch at a fancy restaurant.  Luckily for me, Rosary has put out a new group gift that is quite literally a showstopper.  It comes with a colour change HUD so you can choose from a bunch of gorgeous colours, depending on your mood.  I felt spring-like and went with the appealing lavender shade.  You can pick up your own dress by joining the Rosary group for 200 Lindens. There are two other just as gorgeous outfits out for you, making it totally worth the join fee.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Something Different

Although I’m stepping out in some pretty sexy clothing, I had to bring my own flavour to the mix with the little stars you see tatooed under my eyes.  You can grab this striking look by La Malvada Mujer at The Cosmetic Fair by joining the group for free and clicking on the gifts you’ll find peppered about the place.  This look comes with two appliers including Omega and Genesis Cosmetics.

Cheers!

Butterfly Meadow

Butterfly Fields
Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I hope your week is going well.  Just like Aline in her post {here}, I would love to attend Coachella, but the closest I will get is this meadow in Second Life.   It’s not even remotely similar to a cacti-studded location, but I get my fill of the desert in real life, so it’s all good!  At least I can enjoy the meandering butterflies and spring temperatures in an adorable free shirt.

A Little Bit Boho

This white and pink peasant top from Ever An’ Angel features long, flowing sleeves, a striped midsection, and a cute column of buttons topped off  by a jaunty bow.  I love way the off-the-shoulder style allows me to soak up some sun rays, and the generous cut provdes freedom of movement.  I opted to pair the aptly named Coachella top with capris in a blush pink shade, but I could have easily created another fun look with jeans or a flowing maxi skirt instead.  This flexible piece can go from uber casual to dressy, depending on how you accessorize.  The gift package includes varieties for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Best of all, you can scoop it up as a free gift just for being a member of the Ever An’ Angel group.  There is a 100L cost to join, but this one time fee makes you eligible for this and future group gifts.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

As the sun has been setting behind me, the Pupster has started pacing back and forth.  He can only take so much of this sitting around, watching butterflies dance about.  This young whippersnapper is raring to go on his evening jaunt, so I’d better oblige.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Date Night Ready!

Black Lace

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!  I have lots of things to get accomplished in RL today, but wanted to publish a quick post that features this sweet black lacy concoction. The Iris Dress is just perfect for a Saturday night date, and it’s free!

All Dolled Up

With sexy cut outs in the sides that show off a glimpse of skin and translucent lace, your avatar will look fantastic in this sexy frock.  Best of all, you won’t have to spend a fortune to look fabulous!  I love the floral pattern and the asymmetrical hemline of the skirt in my new dress.  While out in public, I made strategic use of the alpha layer of my Maitreya body to ensure my bits were concealed, but when back at home after a date night, the alpha layer won’t be needed! 😉 The free package includes both red and black versions of this mini for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport over to Julia’s Scandal, activate the group tag (it’s completely free to join!), and tap the vendor.  You (and your date) will glad you did!

What’s Included:

  • Classic Avatar (in black and red)
  • Alpha layer
  • Ebody (in black and red)
  • Freya (in black and red)
  • Hourglass (in black and red)
  • Maitreya (in black and red)
  • Physique (in black and red)
  • Venus (in black and red)

The pupster and I are off to complete as many errands and household chores as we can.  We’ll be back soon with another Fabulous Find.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Rumpled but Cute

Rumpled but Cute

Happy Weekend Fab Free!

I’m thinking about the days when I used to stay up til the wee hours, dancing the night away.  I could dance for ages (I still can by the way!!!) and then wake up the next morning fresh as a tiddly, and ready to wink! (bahaha!).  Well, that’s my look today – the Saturday morning rumpled, just got out of bed, but still look flipping fantastic look.  I’ve got all the deets!

Strip it Good

Ok, so weird subtitle, but Vanilla Bae are the specialists of the strippable outfit.  Yep, you click on it a few times, and then bit by bit it slithers off your body and disappears into the ether.  I was telling you about some lucky boards there the other day, but today I’ll tell you about this cute top you can get as a group gift with the 100L join fee.  There are other gifts to be had as well, including access to the lucky boards which are full of goodies.  This top comes with 6 different colours in the HUD, and I must say that I highly enjoy the flowery design on the top.  Don’t you?

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

I Can See!

Boutique 187 has a cute free gift for you at the Cosmopolitan event – these cute Eiffel-esque glasses in a cheery gold hue.  They please me infinitely.  You can grab your own pair by joining the Cosmopolitan group for free!  The gift is right by the entry doors to the event.

Now go forth, my little ones – and take Saturday by the horns!

Beach More, Worry Less

Salt in the Air

Hello there, Fabulouses!  It was one of those days in real life when the day to day stresses seemed to pile up on my shoulders, and all I wanted to do was escape to the shore.  Since I am a long way from the ocean, Ripley and I did the next best thing……we escaped to NorderNey in Second Life.  Of course, I had to wear the newest addition to my summery wardrobe – a free gift for members of the Teleport Hub group.

Like the Sea – Wild and Free

This beautiful Turquesa Boho Beach Dress from Poeme is perfect for soaking up some sunshine in the salty air.  It features slender spaghetti straps, a comfy casual cut, and a soft pale teal hue.    I really like the intricate white pattern which is swirled across the fabric.  The free gift package also includes a pair of Mandala Turquoise earrings that coordinate perfectly with the outfit.  With versions for classic as well as mesh avatars, this warm weather frock is sure to fit most.  To add Turquesa to your SL closet, simply teleport over to Poeme, activate your Teleport Hub group tag, and tap the vendor.  If you’re not already part of the group, membership costs only 10L, and includes gifts around the grid.  It’s so worth the fee!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitted mesh
  • Standard mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Mandala Turquoise Earrings also included

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Looking for a Black Rose

BlackRose

Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  Ripley and I were lucky enough to have some spare time to spend wandering the grid, and came across a beautiful frock to share with you today.  We hope you like it!

Fabulous and Free Frock

Just for being a member of the Fab Free group, you can scoop up this teal colored Lena dress over at BlackRose for the low price of………zero linden dollars.  Featuring criss-crossed shoulder straps , a curve-hugging design, and a hemline that falls to the knees, this baby will take you from a casual day look straight on into date night.  I love the realistic folds in the fabric and its flattering fit.  The deep hue will complement just about any skin tone, and its budget-friendly price tag will bring a smile to your face.  The package includes sizes for classic as well as mesh bodies.  Since the Fab Free group has no join fee, you can add this lovely outfit to your wardrobe completely for free!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL

  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Well, that’s a wrap for today.  It’s time to head out grocery shopping before the snowbirds fill the aisles, and thereby double the amount of time it takes to complete this weekly chore.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

You Can Never Go Wrong With a Little Pink

In the Pink

Hello Fabulouses!  It must be those blush colored tulips from my post {here} left me with pink on my mind, because today’s outfit continues that theme.  Like Loki, the pupster and I are working our way through the Glam or Grunge Hunt, and finding some wonderful goodies along the way.

In the Pink

We discovered my one shouldered Simple Chicness Gown at OMG! Inc.  For just one Linden dollar, I came away with a lovely formal frock complete with a HUD packed with ten options for colors.  I selected this pretty rose hue, but if pink is not your style, OMG! Inc. has you covered.  Featuring a long skirt, low waistline, and realistic wrinkles in the texture, this elegant dress is perfect for a date night or a casual stroll with your bff.  Although there were no mesh body versions in the gift box, I was able to adjust the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara body to get a perfect fit.

Sizes Included:

  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • XXS
  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L

Feeling Just Like a Princess

In addition to my new gown, I also picked up a gorgeous hairstyle as a free group gift over at Clawtooth.  This new ‘do features the Essentials HUD with 16 texture choices.  I love the simple floral headband which is included as well.  I opted for pink blossoms, but could have easily gone with one of five other selections.  You can even change the texture of the band itself to either yellow, white, in addition to the green I am wearing.  In order to pick up this hairstyle for yourself, you need to be a member of the Clawtooth by Clawtooth Update Group, however, there is no join fee, so your new tresses will be completely free.  I’m not sure how much longer the Princess Bride Group Gift will be available, so if you want to scoop up a copy for yourself, don’t delay.

Well, that wraps up my Fabulous Finds for today.  Ripley and I will be out and about searching for more budget friendly items to share with our favorite readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Hearts and Harnesses

Hearts and Harnesses

Hey Hey Fab Free!  I’m rolling in lace again – and I really can’t complain!  I’ve been exploring the lingerie aisles of SL recently, and I’m not 100% sure this is lingerie, because I mean….I would wear it out in SL!  What can I say, I’ve got a bit of a different sense of style… Did you notice?  Well…if you’ve got it flaunt it!

Bish, Please!

Toxic Bish is one of those stores that you find a whole lotta free inside. There are midnight madness boards, lucky letter boards, and a pile of free group gifts!  I found both the top and bottom of this outfit in the group gift area, and I figured I’d put them together and see what larks.  I am highly enjoying the harness addition to the shorts (harnesses are so hot right now, right Pru?).  You can pick up both the top and bottom of this outfit at Toxic Bish, by joining the group for free and clicking to your heart’s content.

Short and Top Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • Top includes TMP size

Can’t Say No to Glitter!

I found a little sweet addition to my kinda intense outfit at C’est La Vie.  Join the group for free, and pay the vendor 1L – it will be returned to you along with the gift!  I picked up the Star Hairpins that come in a plethora of colours.  You can move them about so they fit with any of your hairstyles.  Cute!

To thine own self be true!

A New Gift on the Horizon

Ever Wonder Where You'd End Up If You Took Your Dog For a Walk and Never Pulled Back On The Leash?

Hey there, Fabulous Readers!  I borrowed the pupster and his tracking harness to see if he and I could round up a budget friendly hunt gift or two on the trail of the Glam or Grunge Hunt, and the old guy didn’t let me down.  I’ll have to give her a quick jingle to see if she finished baking that fresh batch of Ripley snacks…

For Those Warm Days When She Wants  You to Walk the Dog

At Horr Menswear, our very first stop, we scored the Duvall shirt I am wearing in my photo.  It’s a tied-around-the-waist model only, but with today’s warm sunshine, I didn’t mind.  Plus, it gave me a chance to show off my new tattoo (more on that in a moment).  The hunt package costs 1 Linden dollar, and includes classic mesh and versions for several mesh bodies.   I really like the plaid pattern, and I’m looking forward to wearing it often in the near future.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (no alpha necessary)
  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • Slink

Get Inked!

My new tattoos are a free group gift for members of the Teleport Hub group, courtesy of Angel’s Design.  The Horizon tattoo features a sinuous design down both arms, a tribal style face on the left pec, a skull on the abs, and three more large designs up and down the back.  The box includes appliers for Belleza, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and TMP,  as well as a tattoo layer for classic avatars.  Joining the Teleport Hub group will set you back 10L, but that opens up a multitude of free gifts around the grid.  I’m not sure how long this item will be available, so if you like these tats as much as I do, I’d recommend heading over to the shop soon to pick up a copy for yourself.

I’d better get Ripley back home so he can enjoy his well-deserved reward.  Until next time, so long!
