And Just Like That The Season Changed

Pretty in Plaid
Hello Fabulouses, and happy Sunday evening!  After a long holiday weekend filled with family events, Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to share this lovely fringed mini dress with you.  It’s a free gift for members of the Evil Bunny Hunts Group and is available at the Black Friday Bazaar.  There’s a catch though – the bazaar runs only for two more days, so if you fancy this dress for yourself, I’d suggest heading over to the event soon.

Pretty in Plaid

I came across the Holiday Fringe Dress, my favorite discovery of the event, at the Changing Seasons booth.  This curve hugging frock features slender shoulder straps and a fun black fringe which decorates the neckline.  I really like the deep navy background and how it is criss-crossed with black and pale blue stripes in a diamond pattern.  This little number is dressy enough for a date night, depending on how you accessorize, but also suitable for casual day wear as well.  Best of all, it is completely free!  All you need to do to pick up a copy for yourself is head on over to the Black Friday Bazaar, activate the Evil Bunny Hunts group tag (don’t worry – it’s free to join) and tap the vendor.  The gift package includes versions for a variety of mesh body avatars.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

I’m off to finish tackling the dreaded Laundry Mountain.  I don’t know if you have the same problem in your world, but it seems like I turn my back for just a moment and poof! the thing just grows and grows.  Wish me luck, I’m going in!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sweet Skater Girl

Sweet Skater

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Since Ripley and I were enjoying the first snowfall in our last post, I decided to slip on some ice skates and glide across the frozen pond while I had the chance.  Ripley absolutely refused to step foot onto the slippery surface, and watched safely from the shore.  I put together my outfit for just 1 Linden dollar by combining a hunt prize and a free group gift, and I’m excited to tell you about it!

A Serendipitous Discovery

While I was at the Grumble store searching for the Snowflake sweater in the Long Winter’s Nap Hunt, I stumbled across a neatly folded shirt, which is the hunt object for the Hoarders of Second Life Hunt.  It was just 1 Linden dollar, so I scooped it up, and decided to take it home to open later.  I am so glad I picked it up on a whim, because the sweet Word Dress was tucked inside.  Featuring a thick knit, loose turtleneck collar, and open shoulders, this form-fitting frock could be worn solo for a cute indoor mini, but since I was outside, I opted to slip on some cozy leggings (more on those later).  Just in case Jolly Old Saint Nick is watching, I like how the word “Sweet” is emblazoned just below the collar.  Hey, it never hurts to remind Santa how nice I am!  😉 The smoky charcoal gray hue is subtle and would coordinate with a variety of colors.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Venus

Gotta Keep Warm!

Over at [west end] Apparel, I picked up a fat pack of cozy stockings designed specifically for the Maitreya mesh body.  This free gift for members of the [west end] VIP group contains a HUD which allows you to select from 36 texture options, which range from solids to stripes.  There are so many times in the winter season that I want to wear a dress, but also need to keep my legs toasty warm, so I know for sure these stockings will come in handy!  To add this gift to your wardrobe, you need to be a member of the group, which does have a 299L join fee, but you will have access to monthly group gifts, a 50% discount for items that were past group gifts, as well as access to special sales for VIP members only.

‘Tis the Season for Gratitude

I’m off to bake a pumpkin pie for the big day tomorrow.  It will be Thanksgiving here in the US.  I have so many reasons to be thankful this holiday season, including my pal Ripley, my RL family, the Fab Free blogging team, close friends, and of course our Fabulous Readers.  Just in case I don’t get the chance to post again before the holiday, I wanted to let you know how grateful I am for YOU, dear readers.  Thank you for taking the time to read my posts, leave comments and likes.  I feel so blessed to have this opportunity!  Until next time, happy hunting!

Time Out for Beachcombing

Oceanside

Hello there Fabulouses!  Today, Ripley and I spent a lazy afternoon beachcombing over at the Sanctuary Isle sim.  I found a few pieces of sea glass to add to my collection, and the pupster found several seagulls to play with chase.  Eventually, they got him all tuckered out as you can see in my photo, so we decided to pause to tell you all about two gifts that I picked up for free, just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.

Did You Say Free, Kat?

Yup, I sure did!  The latest free gift for Fab Free members from Petry Model Store is this adorable GSU Outfit, which is ideal for an escape to a sun-filled island.  The teensy top provides plenty of opportunity to soak up some rays, while still keeping your bits covered.  I really like the soft shade of blue!  The coordinating shorts feature a tied belt around the waist in a slightly darker hue.  Although they look absolutely perfect paired together, you can wear the shirt and shorts separately for added versatility.  Given the chilly temperatures in RL that I am dealing with, it sure was a treat to slip into a skimpy outfit and head to the shore!  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply switch to your Fab Free group tag, teleport over to the shop, and click the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

A Bit of Sparkle and Shine

To complete my look, I added a Floral Pendant Necklace and Earrings from Beloved Jewelry.  This jewelry set is also completely free for members of Fabulously Free in SL, and I have to tell you, it’s just so pretty!  Compose of a large sapphire surrounded by delicate silvery petals suspended on an intricately detailed silver chain, this collection can be an elegant finishing touch to a formal outfit, or a bright pop of bling for a more casual look.  Either way, you will look amazing!  I pulled my hair back and snapped a close up so you can get a better look:

Sapphire Blue

I’m off to whip up something for dinner.  Too bad I didn’t start up a crock pot before we headed out the door this morning! We’ll be back soon with another fabulous find to share with our favorite readers.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Chillin’ on a Dirt Road

Chillin' on a Dirt Road

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope you are finding some time for chillin’ this weekend.  Ripley and I decided to go for a long walk along this country lane on Sanctuary Isle.  Nothing relaxes me and makes me smile more than hanging out with my best pal.  Before we headed down this old road, we took a detour over to Tori’s Stylez to pick up the perfect outfit for a stroll in the country.  It’s a free gift for members of SL Frees &Offers group (which is free to join), but you do have to pay 1 Linden dollar first, which will be instantly refunded to you.

Such a Pretty Dusty Rose

Featuring a cozy cardigan vest, tank, jeans, a belt (not worn) and the long knotted necklace, the special edition Jina outfit was just what I was looking for.  I love the pinks and purples in the sweater and the fact that the package included not one, but two texture change HUDs for the tank top.  That gives you sixteen color options!  The faded blue jeans hugged my curves and had cuffs that tucked neatly into my boots without poking out at all.  You can wear the cardigan by itself, paired with the tank, or wear just the tank by itself – talk about versatility!  The long silver necklace provided just the right finishing touch.  Although there were no versions designed specifically for mesh avatars, I was able to get the ideal fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara HUD.  With the soft color combination and well worn jeans, I could definitely see myself wearing this outfit in RL as well as SL.  It’s sure to become one of my favorites!

What’s Included:

  • Light blue jeans in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4, & 5
  • Belt in Ash, Brown and Copper (not shown)
  • Cardigan & Tank Combo in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Cardigan by itself in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Tank by itself in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
  • Texture change HUD #1 and #2 for the tank
  • Long Knot Necklace
  • Alpha for cardigan and tank
  • Alpha for cardigan
  • Alpha for tank
  • Alpha for jeans

We’re off to finish our walk before we head out for shopping round #2.  Until next time, happy chillin’!

Hello November!

Hello November

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a fantastic Halloween.  We had quite a few trick or treaters last night.  It seemed like I would just sit down to type up this blog post, and then DING DONG went the door bell again!  There were a number of “first timers” that were just super adorable.  I think we had one repeat visitor, or maybe it was just a popular costume….since it had a full mask, I guess we’ll never know.  The best part (for me anyway) is we still have some candy leftover.  Yay!  Sorry boy, dogs can’t have chocolate.

Yes, It’s Free!

Speaking of sweet treats, Alias! is gifting the Dot Orange outfit to members of Fabulously Free in SL completely for free.  It features a tube top style shirt with a playful polka dot print in orange, white and black, as well as curve-hugging black jeans with a flared bottom hem.  Packed with details such as gleaming silver buttons, vertical panels in the pants and a ruffled bottom on the top, this duo aims to please.  Although you can’t see them well in my picture because of the bell bottoms, the package also includes chunky heels with a coordinating polka dot pattern.  Since each of the components are worn separately, you can mix and match them with other items in your wardrobe for added versatility.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

After hearing that he can’t have any of the candy, the pupster is now pouting in the corner.  I’m off to whip up a batch of Ripley Snacks to help him feel a bit better.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hello Friday, I’m Ready!

Gray Day

Hello Fabulouses.  We made it!  We’re finally on the downhill slide to Friday!  I don’t know about you, but for me, this week has dragged on in RL.  When Ripley and I were over at the Fatal Fashion store picking up the outfit I blogged in my post here, I saw the perfect little mini dress to ring in the weekend.  And, just like the last gift, this one is completely free and contains an entire look, including heels and a necklace!

Free Flirty Frock

The Cecelia dress features a subtle color variation from a lighter gray at the bodice to a darker tone at the skirt.  Deep black edging and horizontal bands accent the overall design.  I love the way the fabric “poufs” out and is gathered in.  It creates such a pleasing effect.  If you zoom your camera in close, you can even see lighter gray accent stitching – such fine detail!  It’s kind of hard to see in my photo, but the bodice is completely strapless.  The intricate Goddess Necklace I’m sporting is also included in the gift package as well as the high heel Lysa Shoes.  Right out of the box, you have everything you need for a night out on the town….all for free.  To pick up Outfit 047 for yourself, you need to be a member of the My Fair Gifts group, but it’s free to join.  Just teleport over to the shop, switch to the group tag, and tap the vendor.  You’ll be ready for date night in a flash!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Well, that’s it for tonight – short and sweet – but I wanted to tell you all about this opportunity before Friday arrives.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Wait Summer…Come Back!

Sleepy Pup

Hello Fabulouses!  Shh….it’s past the pupster’s bedtime, but I couldn’t log off without sharing a completely free outfit that I picked up just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  Everything I’m wearing in the picture, from my gleaming necklace right down to my floral heels, is all included in the gift package from Fatal Fashion.

I’m Taking a Break from Pre-Halloween

I’ve really been enjoying all the fall-flavored fabulous finds the other fab bloggers are sharing.  Today, I found myself longing for just one more warm summer day before the icy freeze of winter settles in, so I’m calling a “pause” on fall, and teleporting back to summer with my skimpy floral crop top and frayed blue jeans.  With its slender shoulder straps, trimmed with metal rings, itty bitty triangles of fabric to cover the girls, and ornamental hem, the Lisa Pink Loose Top certainly helped me conjure in that summer vibe.  Although you can wear the top as is, you might want to wear some longer, strategically placed hair to preserve modesty.  The golden Heart and Arrow Long Necklace (also included in the free giftie) is just the right length to accentuate your cleavage.  Button-close, curve hugging jeans set a casual tone with their faded color and well worn patches.  Finally, my Camilla Flower heels complete the look and provide an interesting contrast with their more dressy appearance.  It’s all included, and all free!  All you need to do is switch to your Fab Free Group tag, teleport to the shop and tap the vendor!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

It’s that time of the evening…..Siri is reminding me to go to bed to get a full eight hours of sleep (wishful thinking, there Siri!).  I’d better rouse Ripley, take him outside for his final bathroom break, and head off to dreamland.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Find Your Eclectique Style

Warming Up by the Fire

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  Isn’t it nice to have cooler weather again so we can enjoy the warmth of a crackling fire?  There’s nothing quite like an evening spent lazing in front of the hearth.  Ripley and I met two new friends while we warmed ourselves briefly while exploring the Luane’s World sim.  You’ll see them soon below…

I’m Loving the Lace

On our rambling journey around the grid this weekend, the pupster and I visited Eclectique, a new to us shop, and I was excited to see a number of gifts on the wall.  This Silver Detail mini dress features large silver grommets, an airy hem, a halter style neckline, and a gorgeous swirling lace pattern on the bodice.  I love the way the black trim beautifully accents the gray background.  Although there is not a style for classic avatars, several mesh body versions are included in the free package.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Eclectique group, which has a tiny 10L join fee, so you can add this frock to your collection for the grand total of ten linden dollars, which would be wonderful in itself, but wait, there’s more!  In addition to this cute mini dress, members can also scoop up 7 other free gifts!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Two Cuties Inspecting Heels

Did Someone Say Free Shoes?

I spotted these ebony colored Rona Heels on the gift wall right beside my new dress.  With gleaming silver rhinestones and delicate straps, they made the ideal addition to round out my outfit.   The free package contains versions for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh feet, so they fit a variety of mesh body styles.  The heels are high enough to show off shapely legs, but not so much that they look impossible to walk in.  Because they are a subtle black hue, they will coordinate with many other items in your inventory.  I know I’ll be wearing these again very soon!  Best of all, they are free for members of the Eclectique store group.

Between the his vet visit on Friday to get his monthly allergy shot, the trip to the home show yesterday, and our long stroll around the grid today, the pupster is all worn out and happily snoozing on his dog bed.  It won’t be long until I wrap up this Sunday evening myself.  I hope you all have a fabulous Monday (well, as fabulous as a Monday could be anyway!).  Until my next post, happy shopping!
