Out For a Stroll

Sunday Stroll

Hello Fabulouses!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start!  Yesterday, Ripley and I checked out the trail of the Scorching Summer Hunt and discovered this fantastic frock at Salty for just 1 Linden dollar.

It’s a Real Summer Scorcher

I really like the way the Emma dress has multiple layers of material, with a solid base fabric covered with a sheer lace layer.  Buckled, criss-cross straps add visual interest to the white color scheme.  Featuring a low neckline, a snug waist and a full skirt, this outfit is perfect for a day of shopping, but depending on the accessories you add, it’s also dressy enough for a date night.  With its short skirt, you will definitely be able to show off your legs, and you’ll probably want to make strategic use of the alpha layer of your mesh body to preserve modesty.  All you need to do to add this frock to your inventory is to head on over to the Salty Main Store, locate the hunt icon, which is a rosebud, and pay one small Linden dollar.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Goin’ Gone

Goin' Gone

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I have to get my house ready for the bug guy to spray (oh the joys of living in the desert with scorpions and other nasties), but I wanted to pop in quickly to share a really pretty hunt prize with you.  I’ve already blogged one of our other finds from the Puppy Love Hunt here, but I must say, I think this one is my favorite.

Lagenlook – What’s That?

The Byzantine Lagenlook dress from Coveted features a gorgeous golden design over a deep burgundy fabric, which happens to be a go-to color for me in RL.  Its slightly flared, asymmetrical hemline falls at about mid thigh.  Cap sleeves and a fairly high scooped neckline complement the figure-flattering cut of the frock.  Three covered buttons on the right hand side add visual interest.  I had never heard the word “lagenlook” before, so of course, I googled it and discovered that it is a style which incorporates wearing layers of clothing.  Although I chose to wear just the dress by itself for my post today, I think it would work well with additional items such as leggings, a jacket, etc.  To pick up a copy for yourself, head on over to the Coveted store and locate the hunt object (a pet bed with a bone) concealed in the shop.  For just 1 little Linden dollar and a bit of time looking around, you’ll come away with a lovely outfit.  The Puppy Love Hunt runs only until February 28th, so if you like the prize as much as I do, don’t delay!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Well, I am off to vacuum and tidy up.  I can tell spring is coming because Ripley is blowing his coat, and his “German Shedder” hair is creating dust bunnies galore.  Thank goodness for the invention of the vacuum cleaner!  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Dance With Me?

Dance With Me

Hello Fabulouses!  Stan and I teamed up to do some hunting along the Candy Cane 10 Hunt trail and found a really cute matchy-matchy prize over at MishMash Fusion.  We just had to celebrate by teleporting off to the Let it Snow sim for a romantic dance.  I really love the red candy cane stripes on both my dress and Stan’s vest.  They are just so bright and cheerful!  If you are looking for a coordinated outfit to wear with your significant other to a holiday party, this might be just up your alley!

On Her:  The Sweetest Frock

My Rocketpop Dress offers a full skirt for elegant swirls on the dance floor as well as halter style neck straps that are reminiscent of holiday ribbons.  Cherry colored buttons, a red sash around the waist and a red and white hemline complete the look.  The package includes versions for mesh avatars as well as sizes for classic avatars, so you’re sure to find the perfect fit for you.  Since all you need to invest to pick up this party frock is a bit of time searching and two little Linden dollars, you’ll look like you spent a bundle, but will have plenty left in the coffers for all your holiday shopping.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • eBody Classic and Curvy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

On Him:  A Dapper Suit

Stan’s Etienne Suit features a red shirt, white tie, striped vest and an elegant white color scheme.  The touches of crimson provide the perfect coordination with the Rocketpop dress without looking too overdone.  All the pieces are worn at once, so there is no fussing around trying to get the different elements to fit together.  With one click, you’ll be ready to sweep her off her feet.  Just like Kat’s prize, the package includes versions for Classic as well as a variety of mesh body styles, all for just two Linden dollars (and a bit of searching time).

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (no alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

We’re off to see what else we can discover as we continue down the hunt path.  The event lasts until December 25th and features stops at a variety of stores.  The pupster is hoping maybe there will be a box of Ripley snacks hidden somewhere along the way.  Luckily, I have a freshly baked batch waiting at home.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Rock Your October 1st

Spooky

Hello Fabulouses!  So, I have to admit it……I went to the Rock Your Rack Event meaning to try my luck in the hunt taking place.  And, really, I did pick up a number of prizes there that I am itching to blog, BUT, when I entered the Pretty Kitty Design booth and spotted the Miyako Gacha display, I just knew I had to try to pick up a few of the pieces of this outfit.  Since today is October 1st and all, I decided to follow Aline’s example and step into the Halloween side of life.

She Was Unstoppable

On the first try, I was surprised to see the rare red headpiece pop up as an inventory offer.  I took that as a good sign, and from that point, I kept playing and collecting (and playing and collecting).  For just 50L a try, it was fairly budget friendly, and it actually didn’t take too long to get the whole outfit.  You can mix and match the pieces with other items from your wardrobe, so there’s no need to go all ham on the gacha machine like I did 😉 .  The Miyako headpiece features black horns rimmed with gold spirals, white pearl embellishments, and red stars dangling from silvery chains.  The curve-hugging top is trimmed with a pretty string bow at the neckline and has semi opaque ruffles.  While the black outer portion matches the horns, the patterned center section echos the crimson hue of the stars.  Also trimmed with string bows, the asymmetrical skirt has a short flirty hem in front and a longer back section.  The part of the outfit that took the longest to get were the shoes, but I have to say, they were worth the wait.  Sexy, thigh-high stockings, criss crossed with bright red lacing and a unique high heel platform (without the heel piece) provide just the right finishing touch.  Each piece in the outfit costs just 50 Linden dollars.

A Perfectly Spooky Pose

To set off the Miyako outfit, not just any pose would do.  Luckily for me, a group notice popped up on my screen advertising a 1L special over at ENII Poses.  I opened the texture, then excitedly teleported to the shop.  This was just what I had in mind!  Not only do you get the pose for a special price, the generous designer also included the backdrop you see in my photo and the ultra creepy skull in my hand.  Ripley took one look at the scary pumpkin backdrop and high tailed it over to Stan and begged for a walk to anywhere far, far away.  The poor guy!  I had to rez the backdrop and pose ball, so you will need a sim where you can set items out in order to use all the items included.  The poseball itself can be copied, so I also could have rezzed it, opened it up, and removed the pose to use with a different background.  It’s a great deal for just 1 little Linden dollar!

Well, I hear the jingle of the pupster’s collar tags as he and Stan are arriving back home, so I’d better whisk the scary orange monster up and tuck it safely away in the black hole that is my inventory.   Until next time, happy shopping!

Queen of The Jungle

Queen of the Jungle
I’m feeling very Jungle queen today!  Like I could swing from a vine and drink from a coconut – or maybe even be an extra in a Duran Duran video.  I’m probably not wearing enough makeup for the latter, so let’s go with jungle queen!  Now where is that Tarzan hiding?

Tribal Sauce

After seeing all the cool finds that everyone else turned up on the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt, I took to hunting a bit myself, and came across this really great suit from Sasheba’s Closet.  I love the way it skims off my curves!  I’m betting you could even use it for some roleplaying if the mood strikes! It also comes with a fairly extensive HUD to change the colours to many different looks!  I searched out the hot air balloon in the store that contains this pretty number, and paid one little linden for it!

I Said “Surprise Me, Bartender!”, And He Did

FabFree: I Said "Surprise Me, Bartender!", And He Did

Hey there Fabulouses!  Last week, I mentioned that I had visited a store called PP while hopping around doing the The Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt, and I got sidetracked by a FREE instore credit gift (which is still available btw!) that I told you about that day [HERE], but I am returning now to share news about the hunt prize I picked up as well, because it’s so cute!

Reminder Info About The Hunt

As I have previously mentioned on FabFree…  The Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt has begun their sixth annual event!  This hunt runs until September 30th so you have plenty of time to hunt down all of the locations.  The hunt icon you will be seeking is a red and white striped hot air balloon and it will set you back 1L per prize.  If you are in a rush and don’t have time or the urge to hunt, you can purchase these hunt prizes at the poster vendor for 25L, alternately.

What’s The Prize At PP?

The prize you can obtain at PP is the Barely Pink Eyelet Mini Micro Dress as shown on my avatar.  It’s sheer, but I was able to fit the Universal Thong group gift panties by Kaithleen’s under it in white to cover up anything I was a little shy about.  I think an applier bikini would work nicely as well for a beach cover-up type look.  The ties at the hips are extra cute 😉

Sizes Included:

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

I don’t care if the world knows what my secrets are

FabFree: I don't care if the world knows what my secrets are

Good morning FabFree!  While I was at Grumble the other day searching around for the Around The Grid in 80 Days Hunt, I came across a few hunt icons and grabbed them too.  One of them was The Elemental Desires Hunt icon which is the four symbols of elements (water, air, fire, earth).  This hunt has two paths…  One for 1L and one for 40L, however this particular prize was on the 1L path.  You can find hunt hints and a prize preview on their official blog.

It’s True, I’m Secretly A Mermaid

I’m not afraid to tell the world about it either.  I wear my confession on the front of my adorable striped back tied hankie top!  It’s a little hard to see in the slouchy position I have myself in, but it does say “Secretly A Mermaid”.  The matching Criss Cross Shorty Shorts are mega short and have very cute ties at the sides.  Yep… this outfit is just 1L, and I love it!

Sizes Included:

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