Wild Rose

Rose

Happy Monday, Fabulouses!  I’m taking a quick break from housecleaning in RL to tell you about another discovery Ripley and I made at The Cart Wash.  The Wild Rose top from Mystic Dragon Designs features a floral print across a white background, a halter style neckline, and an asymmetrical open front, which offers a sexy peek at your belly button.   I really love the romantic, feminine look of this summery shirt, and you can scoop it up for only 10L at The Wash.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Venus
  • Werwolf

Sadly, the dog hair (thanks, Ripley!) is not vacuuming itself up, so I need to return to my cleaning.  Perhaps I should follow Serena’s example and pick up the Clean-o-Mat.  It sure would come in handy!  Or maybe you can train a dog to use a vacuum cleaner?  I wonder…. Until my next post, happy shopping!

I wasn’t exactly dressed for adventuring…

We all bleed the same color. 1

I wasn’t exactly dressed for adventuring… after all I was in my 10L Emerald Couture Dk Olive Bloom dress from the Cart Wash Sale with its asymmetrical hem and floral material…

Even if it did come in all the following sizes…

  • Standard mesh XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS-XL
  • TMP
  • Ebody
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

… I wasn’t exactly dressed for adventuring… wearing my 10L Emerald Couture Dk Olive heels from the Cart Wash Sale (which fit Slink, TMP, Maitreya, and Belleza feet)… but that didn’t stop me.

I knew when I saw the sign on that airplane that someone had spray painted, “Do epic shit” that it was time to step out of my comfort zone and step into adventure… even if I was wearing a dress. So I crossed through the broken down fence to the crash site and wandered in.

We all bleed the same color. 2

Once inside, I explored the wreckage. It was littered with “treasures” and things I wanted to see. There was some graffiti that caught my eye and seemed important to remember: “We all bleed the same colour.” Yeah… isn’t that the truth. So many forget that in their everyday lives as they walk down the street. It’s a good motto to live under the moon by.

It had me fingering my new free texture change Lotus Moon necklace from Moondance Boutique. It was part of a matched set that included earrings too… as well as a bunch of beautiful rings, but I’d left the rings at home. I managed to get it as a group gift (the group was free to join) and I was tickled pink about it…

… even if I wasn’t dressed for adventure.

The Digging-est Dog

The Digging-est Dog

Hello Fabulouses!  After our disaster at the Hobbiton sim, in which a certain someone, who shall remain nameless, excavated a flower garden without permission, Ripley and I decided to spend the rest of the weekend at a “dig-friendly” environment – the beach.  As you can see in my photo, the sand was soon flying after being churned by furious paws, but I didn’t have to worry about the untimely death of roses.

Perfect for a Hot Summer Day

Clad in another of our Cart Wash Sale discoveries, I was ready to enjoy some sun.  For only 10L each, my Hot Summer Top and Shorts from Marquesse made the perfect, budget-friendly, casual outfit for a day at the shore.  My cropped top featured a knitted pattern, spaghetti straps, and sexy criss-cross lacing.  The floral texture of my shorts echoed the raspberry hue of my top, and contained plenty of pockets to hold essentials for an afternoon outing.  I like the realistic details of the button fly closure, seam stitching, and rivets.  I could see pairing these shorts with a white, lavender or light blue tank for a bit of variety.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Ebody
  • Venus
  • TMP
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Tonic Fine
  • Tonic Curvy

I’m going to hang out here, relax for the rest of the day, and maybe catch some z’s in the shade of a palm tree.  Ahhh, this is the life!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Quiet Spot

Quiet Time

Sometimes a little rest and relaxation with a good book and some coffee in a quiet spot is just what is needed to recharge our batteries. Luckily I’m dressed for the occasion.

Full Outfit… 10L price

The Loordes of London Cart at the Cart Wash Sale has a wonderful deal for bargain hunters if you love quality casual wear. Their English Garden Sets are available in 5 colors and for just 10L you get both the top and the matching shorts.

The top has a nice knit look with a cotton edge texture, and the shorts have a quality denim texture. You’ll get standard mesh sizes XXS – L with a quality alpha layer to go with it, if you are still rocking your system body.

See you at The Wash!

Bali is My Next Stop

Acadia

Happy Friday, Fabulous Readers!  In my post yesterday {HERE}, I shared one of our finds from The Cart Wash Sale, and Ripley and I are back today with another discovery.  Yesterdays’ look was casual, so I decided to switch things up today with a date-night dress with some strappy high heels.

Hello Bali Blue

I scooped up my figure-hugging mini dress at the Finale Couture display for only 10L.  With slender shoulder straps joining together in a T formation at the back, and a dramatic plunging neckline, this frock will show off your curves in style.  In a pale, Bali blue shade, with a texture composed of alternating leaf shaped prints, this mini dress ends with an embellished woven fringe, which adds a playful touch of whimsy.  The package also includes Acadia heels in a perfectly coordinated shade, which feature delicately intertwined straps.  There is also a gold toned, beaded necklace with teal-blue gems tucked inside the box as well, however, I didn’t wear it for my photo.

Sizes Included:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Acadia heels for slink high
  • Acadia necklace (not shown in picture……I didn’t see it in the folder in time)

We’re Not Done Yet…

Ripley and I found *so many* budget-friendly fashions at The Cart Wash Sale, and we will return soon to share another one with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Bad Girl

Bad Girl

I’ve been a bad… bad… girl… and it’s written all over my body suit by 1 Hundred. 😀

The Cart Wash Sale is going strong!

Already you’ve seen several wonderful posts by our FabFree staff featuring great stuff by creators at the Cart Wash! Love showed you some beautiful beachwear here, Kat showed you something more casual here, and for the guys Carson showed off his beach gear from the Cart Wash here. I’ve been getting in the Wash action too, but today I decided to be a bad girl today and the 1 Hundred Cart had exactly what I needed!

The 1 Hundred Cart is one of those carts that just has naughty written all over it. Short skirts, lingerie, form fitting outfits… these slinky bodysuits in 6 color choices…

Down That Red Dirt Road

Down that Red Dirt Road
Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are enjoying the official arrival of summer.  In my part of RL, summer time can be unbearable.  We are broiling under a heat wave with record high temperatures that are leaving me longing for the rural dirt roads and cool green forests of my childhood home.  Since I can’t get out for long in RL, I sure am glad that Ripley and I could take a long stroll down a country lane in SL.

Cute and Casual

After reading Love’s post {HERE} and Carson’s post {HERE} about The Cart Wash Sale, Ripley and I decided to take a look for ourselves, and we discovered the perfect casual outfit at the Finale Couture cart for our trip down memory lane.  For only 10L, I scooped up the complete Lea outfit, which includes my black cami-style top and distressed denim jeans.  One of my pet peeves is having to break in a new pair of jeans, so finding a pair that already have that vintage look, and are comfortably soft is a real plus in my book.  The pale hue of these softly worn trousers contrasts beautifully with the dark satiny texture of my top.  I love the way the top leaves part of my tummy bare to feel the gentle summer breeze.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh Cami for Classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL (plus alpha layer)
  • Fitmesh Cami in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Cami for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink
  • Jeans for Slink, Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Lara, TMP, Tonic Curvy, Venus

Back Soon With More Cart Sale Fashions

Ripley and I spotted so many wonderful, budget-friendly Fabulous Finds at The Cart Wash Sale!  We’ll be back soon to share another with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Kiss Me Maybe

Free Kisses Maybe_002

I was exploring The Wash sim after doing my shopping… checking out the carnival and I found a kissing booth and couldn’t resist checking it out. The pose puts you in position inside with your hands sort of over your mouth as if to say “no kisses today!” which I found amusing, but fitting because I was wearing a cute pair of “Kiss me” hawt pants from Roped Passion’s that had other ideas in mind!

Check it out!

You’ll want these hawt pants for yourself. I’ve included a picture of the front and the back, just so you can see how cute they are! I may not be handing out kisses at the kissing booth… but these hawt pants have their own ideas! And they were only 10L at the Roped Passion’s Cart at the Cart Wash Sale!

6 Pants Choices:

  • All you can eat Hawt Pants
  • Binge Watching Hawt Pants
  • In Case of Emergency Hawt Pants
  • Kiss This Hawt Pants (shown)
  • Slippery When Wet Hawt Pants
  • Spank Itself Hawt Pants

Sizes available for each:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Add a splash of color!

I wanted to add some color (and Pride) to my outfit and stopped by the Luminesse Cart to pick up the rainbow bracelets you see in my pictures. These too are only 10L and are resizeable too! I think they are a perfect addition to my outfit and highlight something that is important to me, so I was happy to find them at the Luminesse cart among the other pretty baubles! Pick up your Pride and show it off today! Of course if you just like rainbows that works too 😉

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!
