Under the Cedars

Secret Garden
Happy Pre-Friday, Fabulouses!  Oooooh have I found a gorgeous, sexy gown for you today!  When Ripley and I were wandering the grid, a group notice popped up on my screen announcing the latest free gift from monaLISA.  Quick as a wink, we popped on over to the shop, and scooped up this beauty.  If you’re not a group member already, for just a 70L join fee, you can add the spellbinding Maite gown to your inventory, too.

Gold Trimmed Ebony

With a slit that offers a glimpse of shapely legs, and a daring cut in the bodice, this sleeveless dress sets off your figure beautifully.  Sleek ebony fabric hugs your curves, and drapes to a slightly flared, floor-length hemline.  Softly gleaming gold edging surrounds the border of the skirt, and adds a glamorous touch.  With sizes for classic as well as mesh bodies, you’re sure to find just the right fit for you!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

It’s so Close, I Can Almost Taste It

We’re almost to the weekend….yay!  Here’s hoping the rest of your work week passes smoothly.  I know I’ll have a busy Saturday in RL.  Thanksgiving managed to sneak up on me this year.  Sheesh!  Where did November go?  Over the weekend, I plan to make sure I have all the ingredients for a delicious Thanksgiving Holiday dinner.  (I know our Canadian friends already celebrated – we’re a little behind them here in the USA).  The pupster put in a special request for a double batch of Ripley Snacks.  My favorite, however, has to be pumpkin pie.  What’s yours?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Down the Valley Road

The Valley Road
Hello Fabulouses!  Have you been over to the event at 68 Main?  The pupster and I checked it out and scooped up some free gifties to share with our favorite readers.  In order to pick up both of these goodies for yourself, you need to be a member of the 68 Main ~ The Event ~ group, but it’s completely free to join.

Chiffon and Lace

My gorgeous Caprice Dress is a free gift from *Chiffon* that is available at 68 Main.  Featuring a lace trimmed, sleeveless bodice, and an optional chiffon flexi skirt attachment (not shown), this little number is perfect for a date night.   I love the subtle sheen of the fabric and the way the skirt falls loosely to the upper thighs.  The package includes versions for classic avatars as well as mesh avatars.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Walk On

Strappy Heels

Also a free gift at 68 Main, this time from Shoenique, my Chinablu Heels showcased my feet and coordinated with my frock like they were specifically made for it.  With delicate criss-cross straps, gleaming leather, and cute little bows in the back, this sexy pair of heels allow your pedicure to shine.  They come in one hue, but black is quite versatile, and I can see myself wearing them quite often (in fact, I gave you all a secret preview of them in my last post {HERE}.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Until next time, happy shopping!

One Enchanted Evening

Dance of a Lifetime

Photo by Carson Caiben… What can I say? His was better…

Hello there Fabulouses!  Ready for a night of romance, enchantment and freebies?  A little while back, Fab Reader Pepper sent me a notecard inworld to let me know that there is a new Ballroom on the grid  called The Regency Ballroom and they have three gifts placed out for visitors.  Two gifts for women, and one for the men!  It took me a little bit to get to it, but when I did, I was very pleased with what I found.

For The Ladies:

There are two gifts for the ladies!  One you can pick up as a free group gift for joining The Regency Ballroom inworld group, and they other is simply priced at 0L.

  1. Shoenique Designs is offering their Zorenta Red Gown as a free group gift with a free group join.  This beautiful gown is sprinkled in sparkles and is sure to set the tone for an enchanted evening.   Sizes included are Slink, Belleza, Maitreya & Fitmesh.  There are also a couple of flexi prim skirt additions added into the folder, but I preferred it without – your call!
  2. J&W Jewellers has a matching Jewelry Set out as a freebie (priced at 0L).  This set is called The Secret of Jade Collection and includes a necklace, earrings and bracelet featuring rubies and diamonds to go with your new red gown!

For The Guys:

As Carson is displaying, the guys can pick up the Shoenique Designs Millennium Men’s Tuxedo as a free group gift for joining The Regency Ballroom inworld group.  It comes complete with shoes and the red rose boutonniere.

Thank you for contacting me with this great tip, Pepper! 😉

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!

Country Girl

Country Girl

Hello Fab Free’ers! I’ve missed you! For the past week I’ve been out of town, getting a little work done and visiting family that lives too far away for me to visit often. I have to say it was a nice trip, but I’m really glad to be home. One thing that always amazes me about going back to small towns like the one I live in now and the one my family has always lived in, somehow, it always feels homey. It doesn’t matter how long I am away, how big the city I live in is, I’m always a small town country girl on the inside.

That said, the city girl in me loves the new SLF&O gifts from CandyMetal and Shoenique! The mesh dress from CandyMetal has a chic sexy feel to it. The dress is fully mesh, and I have to say both the pattern and the shading of the dress texture is lovely. I think it could easily go from a work environment, to an early dinner date. The dress also includes a matching mesh hat. The hat is very cute on, even though I chose to re-position it so that I could be holding it in my pictures. The Shoenique SLF&O gift couldn’t have been more perfect, these pointed-toe shoes are a real statement with the dress from CandyMetal. Also, just as a side note, these shoes do not require Slink feet. Now that I have my outfit all picked out, remember that little ramble I went on about taking the girl out of the country but not the country out of the girl? Well, that is why I chose this serene out-door setting for my main photo. I feel like a country girl all dressed up in her city-girl finest!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Stars – Beyond the New Frontier

I have a sky full of stars. That’s right! I got it from Precious of Precious Designs as a group gift (free to join). I love this dress. It comes with a color change HUD that gives you 2 color choices – purple & green. I can’t even begin to tell you how generous this designer is with her group & SLF&O gifts. I chose the purple for this shoot. I paired it with a new pair of shoes from Shoenique, the Latte Heels Pumps. They are also a free gift for the SLF&O group (free to join). The color is neutral and will match almost anything in your wardrobe.

I put in this closeup shot to show you my nails, hair and jewelry. My nails come from Allusions, another set of the Meteorite nails in 2 colors (group gift). I’m wearing the berry set. These are SLink appliers so you must have a set of SLink hands. Cele Light Blonde is the hair I am wearing from Alli&Ali. It was a MM Prize. Both of these groups are free to join. My lipstick was a also a SLF&O gift (free to join) from TnO and this lovely shade is pinky! My jewelry, Moon & Stars set came from ~*Dryad Designs*~. I couldn’t find the store in SL but this set can be found on the Marketplace for $200L.
