Tell Me About It, Stud

Tell Me About ItHello There Fab Free’rs, I hope it’s obvious that Pru is channeling a little Olivia Newton -John circa the 1978 version of Grease. As I was trying things on and putting this look together my mind went right to Sandy’s post makeover look. I can just hear Sandy saying “Tell me about it, Stud.” while Danny Zuko struggled to handle her sexy new look! Needless to say, I had some fun with this one, and I hope you like it.

Now I’m sure you’re wondering, where’d I get most of this stuff!? Thanks to one of the photos in our Fabulously Free in SL Flickr group, I found out about an event called Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow. To be perfectly honest I don’t know much about the event other than there were a lot of colorful items and most of the vendors had at least one gift out, some had several. Each gift ranged in cost from FREE to as much as 10 lindens, most gifts I saw were set at 5 lindens. Leave it to me to find the least colorful gifts to show, what can I say I’m a sucker for black! I also picked up a recent gift by LIVIA from the Marketplace because I needed to have some gorgeous red lips to finish the look.
Better Shape UpStarting with the top rather than from the top, this black and gold bodysuit is one of many gifts at the Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow event. The gift is from a shop called Alpha Female. It includes appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, and classic system layers for non mesh avatars. I am not always a big fan of applier clothing, however this bodysuit is really well done. I think the textures are beautiful. This gift is just 5 lindens, no group needed.

Next up, this boho bangle is from a shop called Shake, and you’ll find it at the Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow event as well. This gift is a FREE one with no need for a group. The bracelet is able to be resized via touch menu. I love the detail in this piece of jewelry, if you look close, it has what looks to me like a cat face in the center of the design. I’m not sure if that was intentional or a happy accident, either way it makes me like it even more.

The last of the gifts from the Hashtag 7 Colors of the Rainbow event that I intend to show are these super sexy high-waist skinny pants from Hi-lo. They are also just 5 lindens. I love these pants. They are one of those staple wardrobe items, everyone should own a pair. The style is timeless, and they are great with a wide variety of tops from sweaters to crops. This 5 linden gift comes in fitmesh sizes, and a body specific size for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink bodies.

Finally, because this look just wouldn’t be complete without some sultry red lipstick, LIVIA recently put out a set of gorgeous glittery lipsticks on the Marketplace. The Fall Shimmer set includes 5 shades of sparkly lipstick that range in color from gold to red. They are perfect fall shades. For just 5 lindens you get this set in classic system layers, a Catwa applier, a Fiore applier, a Lelutka applier, and an Omega applier. This is a generous gift well worth the 5 lindens, however you can also get this gift for FREE! If you’re not lazy like I am, you can head over to the LIVIA in-world location and pick up this gift for FREE with your LIVIA group tag. The LIVIA group is FREE to join.

Paisley Perfection

Pretty in Paisley
Well, hello again Wonderful Readers!  Last Sunday, Ripley and I shared the Militar dress from Scandalize Creations with you in our blog post here.  While scooping up that darling camo mini, I couldn’t help but notice the other group gifts on the wall, so today we traveled back to Scandalize to pick up another Fabulous Find.

Pretty Paisley Print

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always had a thing for paisley.  There’s something almost hypnotic about the intricate, swirling patterns.  This free Revlu skirt combines my most beloved fabric motif with my top color choice, red – two wins in my book!  With its vibrant print, black waistband, and leg-flattering length, this cheery skirt is sure to remain a favorite in my wardrobe far into the future.  To add Revlu to your SL inventory, simply head on over to Scandalize, join the group for free, and tap the picture on the group gifts wall.

Knotted Top

Playing off the hue of Revlu’s waistband, the black, loosely knotted, leather crop top from Beck complements the skirt without overpowering it.  I like the sheen of the texture and the way the ends of the ties cascade down my midsection in soft waves.  Slender straps leave my shoulders bare to soak up some warm SL rays.  Although I enjoy brisk fall days, this summer-loving-girl still longs to frolic in the sun, and today’s outfit is perfect for just that.  Oh, how I wish I could control the climate in RL as I can in SL!  A short, simple Elements necklace from Wazzer Works, at The Chapter Four, perfectly accessorized my outfit.

Sensuously Strappy Shoes

While out on a relaxing bike ride with my canine pal happily trotting alongside, we passed by the Ricielli store and spotted a sign announcing the Halloween Hunt currently taking place. Each pumpkin in the hunt costs 15L, and these Kyra high heels are just one of 20 prizes to be found.  These slinky shoes come in three shades (blood, midnight, potion), and are the perfect footwear to glam up any outfit.

Listen to Your Heart, Not the Crowd

Time For a New ‘Do

On our way over to the Yasminia sim for a little exploration, Rip and I decided to take a quick detour over to the Hairology event after reading Pru’s beautifully written post here.  At Hairology, Ripley sniffed out this free, medium length, center-parted Bezoar hair from Mithral.  This is just one of many free hairstyles generous designers have set out for all to enjoy.  The package includes a color-change HUD jam-packed with 30 textures to choose from.  Sweet and sophisticated at the same time, Bezoar will flatter any avatar.

I hope you have spotted something in today’s post that inspired you to create a Fabulous Find of your own.  Until next time, my friends, happy shopping!

Dressed Like a Day Dream

I've Got a Blank Space

Hello there, Wonderful Readers!  You may have noticed the virtual flurry of posts lately about all the new presents for members of the in-world Fab Free Group, such as Edi’s post here, Love’s post here, Pru’s post here, and Loki’s post here.  If you haven’t, please do check them out!  The generosity of SL designers never ceases to amaze me!  There are so many gifties just for Fabulously Free in SL Group members, and it’s completely free to join.

This morning, after I refilled my coffee cup, I returned to find Ripley with his front paws perched up on my chair staring intently at the screen.  His tail was wagging briskly, and I knew my hound with a nose for fashion was on the trail of a mid-week Fabulous Find to share with you.  I’m a huge fan of Kira Paderborn and Jolene Carami over at Entice (as you could probably tell from my posts here and here).  When Ripley nudged the announcement from Love about a new, free gift from Entice, I scurried over to the Flawless sim to scoop it up.

I’ve Got a Blank Space

Featuring a deep magenta texture with subtle shimmers of colored sequins, the free, sleeveless Blank Space dress is loosely fitted and chic.  A simple black belt, worn low on the waist line, accents the deep shade of the dress beautifully.  The package includes standard mesh, plus an alpha layer for classic avatars, but also fits my Maitreya mesh body.  To pick up Blank Space for yourself, simply navigate to the Entice store, cross the footbridge, and head to the group gift section in the back.  Swap over to your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, and tap the board.  Ta da!

Sizes Included:  Standard mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
Leave You Breathless

Finishing Touches

An elegant garnet Princess Solitaire necklace and earring set from Cae (a 75L gacha prize) echoed the rich tone of my new dress.  I splurged and picked up the matching Blank Space heels from Entice for 150L on the Marketplace to complete my look.  Perfectly coordinated, and dressed like a day dream, I accompanied Ripley to the Paramour Sim (thanks for the tip, Loki!) to snap a few photographs and look for little kittens to rescue.

Until Sunday, happy shopping, my friends!
