Pretty in Plaid

Pretty in Plaid

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a relaxing weekend.  After a visit to the vet today, Ripley is snoozing by my side as I type this post.  All the excitement just wore him out.  Actually, he kind of looks like I felt after my flu shot earlier this week…  Poor boy!  At least he doesn’t need any more shots for awhile.  Before we headed out to the pet doc, the pupster and I discovered a free group gift to share with you.

Rich Hues for Autumn

My Fall Dress from Sevyn East features a black sleeveless sweater tucked into a loosely pleated plaid skirt that is topped off with bow tied at the waist.  One of my favorite outfits back in high school included a skirt very similar to this one, so as soon as I saw this beauty, I knew I had to have it!  I really love the deep colors, which are perfect for fall.  Although it looks like this frock is composed of separate pieces, it is actually all-in-one.  With sizes for classic avatars in addition to two mesh body versions, this free gift is a great addition to your fall wardrobe.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport over to Sevyn East, activate the group tag (don’t worry – it’s completely free to join!) and tap the vendor.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya

Once I am able to rouse Ripley from his well-deserved slumber, we will travel around the grid, and locate another Fabulous Find to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Grateful for the Little Things

Grateful for the Little Things

Hello Fabulouses!  There’s a jerky turkey running around SL, creating havoc, and  leaving orange feathers all over the place.  Ripley is determined to catch this guy, and I am along for the ride, scooping up hunt prizes as we go, for only 1L each.   It’s a great deal – all I have to do is follow the pup’s talented nose from sim to sim, hand out a few Ripley Snacks every now and then, and collect feathers.

Hoping to Find a Hunt Prize

It all started when we were at Hope’s Creations, trying to locate an elusive dollhouse for another hunt.  As we wandered from room to room in the shop, I urged Ripley, “Find it, Pal.  Find it!”  Suddenly, he got “that look” in his eye, and took off, nose to the ground, with me trailing along behind him.  He quickly reached his destination, and stood, wagging his tail wildly.  The only thing was, he didn’t find a dollhouse; he proudly pointed out … an old orange feather.  Slightly disappointed, but not wanting to offend the pup, I tossed him a reward, paid 1L, and picked up the feather.

I’m so glad I did, because an entire outfit was nestled inside the hunt object!  A warm, ribbed, under layer shirt, with three quarter length sleeves, a cropped sweater with the word “Grateful” written in multi-colored script across the front, and a skirt were all included.  Smiling at Ripley, I gladly slipped on the top and admired the textures.  I really enjoy the contrast between the darker cropped sweater and the creamy tone of the undershirt, and the message to be thankful was a timely reminder.  I was in the mood for comfy-casual for a day of miscellaneous errands, so I donned some bell bottom jeans instead of the skirt.  However, it is really cute, with a leafy design in coordinating tones to match the text printed on the shirt.  To add this adorable outfit to your inventory, teleport over to Hope’s Creations, and located the bright orange feather concealed in the shop, pay 1L, and the TJ Shirt and Skirt will be delivered right to your inventory.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Curvy
  • eBody
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

We never did track down the dollhouse, so Ripley and I will hit the trail again tonight to see if we can ferret it out.  If not, I’m sure my boy will be raring to locate that gobbler at another store.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Casual Monday

Casual Monday
Hello Fabulouses and Happy Monday!  The mornings are crisper now, even where I am in RL, so I am glad Ripley and I came across this cozy, cowl neck sweater over the weekend.

Free With No Group Needed!

The pupster and I headed over to Graffitiwear yesterday to scoop up the latest group gift, and spied this adorable sweater, which is a free subscriber gift.  All I had to do was give the board a quick tap, and the Herringbone Sweater and Skirt delivered immediately.  The sweater features a dark blue, realistic looking knitted texture with pops of magenta and green in vertical stripes.  This pull over is thick and warm on the top half, but allows your tummy to feel the breeze.  I could see layering this over a tank top on frosty mornings, but today I was happy with the cropped sweater look.  Seeing as how Mondays are “Casual Day” at my work, I was in a “denim” kind of mood, so instead of donning the coordinating skirt included in the gift, I slipped on a pair of indigo jeans, which echoed the main color of my top.  My outfit was just right for a morning stroll before leaving for work.

I hope you have a terrific day!  Until my next post, happy shopping. 🙂

Into The Forest I Go

BeYOUtiful

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I have a real treat for you today – a sweet new hairstyle adorned with daisies and a romantic, embroidered gown that wows with subtle sex appeal.  It’s hard to believe that BOTH are contained in one fabulous group gift that you can pick up entirely for free!

It’s a Celebration!

To commemorate its 6th anniversary in Second Life and 50,000 group members, D!va Hair is generously gifting group members with a fatpack of Iris hair and the stunning Iris gown (more on this beauty below!).  With seven variations for the hairstyle, including optional braids and long tresses in front and back (shown in my photo), and a HUD which allows you to select from 13 textures, as well as to turn on and off the headband and flowers, the Iris hair is extremely versatile.  You can resize as needed for the perfect fit (I had to do so with my Catwa head, but it was easy-peasy).  I seriously love this hairstyle!

Into the Forest I Go

Isn’t this gown just stunning?  With a dramatic slit that shows off shapely legs, a curve-hugging fit, and a perfectly tied bow at the waist, this formal frock is quite chic.  Its long skirt drapes smoothly to a slightly flared hemline that trails a bit behind you as you walk.  The cream colored background fabric is adorned with intricate ecru embroidery, which adds a touch of elegance.  It’s hard to see in my picture due to my long hair, but the bodice is strapless and dips low in the back.  The gift box also includes a translucent pannier that I opted not to add.  With a timeless, romantic appeal, this free gown is sure to flatter any avatar.  To pick up both the hair and dress, simply teleport over to D!va, join the group if you are not a member (it’s completely free), and tap the vendor.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS
  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • two alpha layers for classic avatars

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Look Out Any Window

Look Out Any Window

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I returned to the Ricielli Halloween Hunt, and discovered another gorgeous dress for only 15L.  The EOS II dress features a delicate lace trim all along the neckline, which adds a soft feminine appeal.  The deep midnight texture has a subtle sheen to it that highlights the natural folds in the skirt and the criss-crossed tie at the waistline.  This frock fits beautifully, and is an amazing bargain!  With elegant accessories, it is perfect for a date night, but is also just as wonderful for every day wear.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Belleza Isis
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Original

I’m not sure how long the Halloween Hunt will continue at Ricielli’s, so if you like this dress as much as I do, I’d recommend heading over to the shop as soon as possible.  Until my next post, happy shopping hunting!

Misty Morning Walk

Misty Morning

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!   Walking for exercise must be a new, healthy trend for the Fab Free Bloggers, because just like Carson, Ripley and I headed out for another morning walk.  This time, we explored the Sea Foam sim.  With rose-pink flowers carpeting the ground, and mist rising off the water, the pup and I set out.  We paused to snap a quick photo before continuing our journey through this beautifully landscaped sim.

Nothing Gets Between Me and My Purple

When I was a new SL resident, a friend introduced me to The Free Dove, which is a wonderful shop packed full of free gifts ranging from shoes, to clothing to hair.  Every so often, Ripley and I travel back there to check out the new offerings.  I am so glad we visited this week because while we were there, my hound with a nose for fashion sniffed out a Fabulous Find to share with you.  The free, curve-hugging Justine dress I am sporting in my picture is a sleek, sleeveless number with a fun, asymmetrical hemline.   I love the way the fabric is slightly gathered with realistic folds.  A zipper on the left side of the skirt adds a whimsical touch.  The generous designer at Finale Couture also tucked the free, perfectly-coordinated Justine heels into the package, so I came away with a complete outfit!  Best of all, the frock and footwear were in my favorite color – purple!  (The box said “eggplant,” but to me, it’s a lovely shade of purple).  You have to be a member of The Free Dove group to scoop up this lovely dress, but joining is free.

What’s Included:

  • Mesh Justine dress in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Justine heels

Now It’s Time For a RL Walk…

I am truly enjoying the cooler mornings that we are experiencing now in the desert.  According to Siri, 78 degrees is “hot,” but to me, it’s a fabulous treat.  Ripley and I are off to explore in the early fall morning.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
