Traveler’s Heart

Traveler's Heart

Wanderlust, beads, a banjo, a tambourine, tarot cards, and perhaps a crystal ball… A wagon, velvet and lace and layered skirts, poet shirts and dancing under the evening stars. If you just like the feel of traveler clothing, or if you are in the mood for a roleplay outfit to spice up your closet, this classic “traveler inspired” shirt and skirt with matching jewelry might just be the ticket you are looking for.

All in one place…

Shoenique Designs has evolved over the years. I remember when it was just a place to buy a unique pair of shoes. Now you can also get unique clothing and jewelry as well. I picked up this gypsy inspired skirt and poet shirt for free as an SLF & Offers gift on the gift wall. Just don your free SLF & Offers group tag and touch the gift board and this outfit is yours.

All the great sizes you need…

  • Standard mesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya, Slink, Belleza

Matching jewelry too!

Right next to the beautiful outfit I picked up, was another generous free SLF & Offers gift from Shoenique Designs that matched the gypsy outfit just perfectly. The free Billy Jewelry Collection in Red Jasper includes a necklace, earrings (both shown) and a bracelet (not shown). I didn’t manage to get a close up to show you just how beautiful and detailed these pieces are (they match the skirt with all its colors just wonderfully), but if you click the Flickr picture, you can zoom in to see the jewelry at a close up to get a close look for yourself!

Happy (free) Shopping, Everyone!

Flavor of the Day

Silver Lining

Thanks to Shoenique Designs and a lucky marketplace find… it seems that my “flavor of the day” has a silver lining! I stopped by Shoenique Designs to discover that they have out their June group gift and it is a real stunner. This lacy silver Cardigan comes in standard sizes as well as fitmesh sizes, and you also get Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink fits too! The design is just lush and the gift is FREE with your FREE group tag, so it won’t cost you a single linden.

I paired the Cardigan with a cute skirt I found on the marketplace by Mute. This is the Gisele Skirt and I am showing it to you in black… though it comes in a large variety of colors and prints… and at only 10L a pop you might well want to start a collection! The skirt is mesh in all the standard sizes and has two cute little front slits at the thighs.

Silver Lining 2

While you’re at Shoenique Designs, be sure to also don your SL Frees & Offers group tag and pick up the FREE Meggy Silver shoes that are the gift out there as well. I paired them with the Shoenique June group gift and my new skirt and was really pleased with the look. These shoes will fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet.

Still Time to Get to Know You This Fall

There is still some fall left in the air, with two days of November left to celebrate before we march into those cold December days. Autumn has always been my favorite season. Sure winter is lovely, but you just can’t beat fall colors in my mind!

Getting to Know You This Fall 1

I wanted to share a few special gifts with you to round out my November Sunday posts. Last Sunday I showed you a spectacular FREE throne by Daffy’s GadgetMania in my post HERE and I mentioned that it was one of three gifts in their offerings for the Get to Know Us Hunt. The Hunt ends November 30th, so it’s not to late to enjoy this fabulous little hunt, but you will want to hurry!

This week I wanted to show you Daffy’s GadgetMania‘s softer side! So I set my pictures inside their Royal Garden Park, which is another of the three FREE hunt gifts. Just as a quick reminder… if haunted houses or disturbing images are too much for you, skip this store on your hunt stops. The hunt to get the gift is a series of clues and steps that can be a bit overwhelming if these types of visuals are more than you can handle.

Also pictured above is the November gift from Shoenique Designs. It is completely FREE with your group tag and the group is FREE to join. Considering that the gift is set along an entire wall of other FREE gifts, you won’t want to pass up this lovely fall wrap style dress! It comes in fitmesh and is perfect for a lady’s day in the park!

Getting to Know You This Fall 2

The Get to Know Us Hunt was small but cozy. It only has ten stops, but each one is really worth it. I also dropped by AmAzInNg CrEaTiOnS to pick up their offering in the Hunt. They put out one box which contained two gifts. Above, Astrid is sporting the Roll Neck Dress 23, which is great for those cool autumn evenings in the park. The other prize is equally gorgeous! You’ll want to grab this FREE goodie bag from this great creator!

Getting to Know You This Fall 3

I wanted to round out my fall look with a reminder that spring would be back… and I wasn’t done with my hunting either. Gachapon! had just the thing to chase away my impending winter blues with their gift for The Get to Know Us Hunt in the form of Lucky Lady Bug Rings! Once you find the FREE hunt gift you’ll be lucky enough to discover that there are nine rings in the box in nine different colors, though I am only showing you the black and the white in the picture above.

Happy fall and happy hunting!

More July 4th Fabness

I know this post is a day late for Independence Day but the celebration does carry over to the weekend. YAY!!! It’s a long weekend for the hard-working Americans out there. I found more Fabness to celebrate the 4th of July. I had a lot of fun putting these together and finding different spots to take these photos.

I got this teeny red, white, and blue bikini at ViVi and it was a free gift for all. It was a great grab! Snowpaws had this really cute American Flag headband for sale ($100). I added these truly fab heels from Shoenique Designs ($99L). I thought the heels were well worth the price. This pic was taken at Ihla Brasil Rio. I loved the look of the surf and rocks right off the beach.

Next I popped on over to the Oahu Vacation Resort to visit the USS Arizona Memorial and pay tribute to those brave souls who lost their lives on that infamous date of December 7, 1941. They fought to preserve our freedom as we know it today.

My dress is fitted mesh from Paisley Daisy and was so excited to find this cute dress for only $10L at a limited Time Only sale. My shoes are the same ones pictured above from Shoenique Designs ($99L). I decided to change my hair to my favorite style, Sonja, from Alli&Ali. That was a very welcome MM surprise. The cute hand-held flag was a gift from [LNS Designs].

I wanted to try out a new skin, Mari SunGlow, from The Skin You’re In I picked up last week at Fab Free HQ for free! I LOVE free! And wow, it fits in with this holiday – it’s all about freedom from tyranny.

Pssst Hey Sailor Boy!

I was perusing the Cart Wash Sale and found this oh so cute sailor outfit. It’s not your traditional one but a lot more sexy. This super hot nautical themed outfit was a great find from B!asta at the Cart Wash Sale It’s sure to help you catch the eye of a real sailor boy! Well I didn’t see any sailor dudes hanging around the Wash so I went out to the ocean to look for some. There weren’t any to be found so I pulled out my cell phone for a shore to ship call….. and I’m still waiting for an answer!
