Deep Greens and Blues Are the Colors I Choose

Summer Day

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are back from our camping trip.  We had beautiful blue skies and no snow this time!  It was nice to get away, but it also feels so good to be home again.  The first thing we did this morning was to make a return visit to Ajuda SL Brasil to do a little budget friendly shopping.  We found a super cute casual outfit to share with you on this Monday.

Earthy Greens and Blues

I guess I have green on my mind since the pupster and I were out in nature for the past 6 days.  When I saw the Bettina Top and Shorts set from Cynderella’s as a free gift, I knew it was destined for my inventory!  With its loose fitting verdant crop top and pale denim shorts, this is just the right get up for an easy summer day.  The top features spaghetti style shoulder straps and a vibrant botanical print.  A coordinating floral motif and lace trim on the jeans echoes the theme, and a sturdy belt provides a finishing accessory.  The folder includes fitmesh for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh body types.  Best of all, you can pick it up for free, with no group membership required! I appreciated the fact that the designer included a note card certifying that the outfit is an original creation donated to Ajuda Brasil to be offered as a gift to residents.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes separate alpha layers for top and shorts)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I hope your work week is off to a wonderful start.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Let’s Go to Brazil

Cat Tails

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope the middle of the week is treating you well!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly to tell you about this casual jean dress that I picked up as a free gift, and then we’re going to hit the road for a camping trip.  I sure hope it doesn’t snow *this* time!

Darling Denim

The Verona Dress from Enigma Apparel features a snug fitting bodice, pockets galore, and a skirt trimmed with a checked pattern.  I really like all the detailed stitching and the frayed texture on the back pockets.  The hem portion is slightly flared and falls to your upper thigh.  To add this little number to your inventory, teleport to Ajuda Brasil Volantarios, and follow the “Freebies” sign.  Use the teleporter in the back left portion of the freebies building to go to the 2nd floor.  The teleporter directions are not in English, so here’s a direct link to where you’ll find the dress.  Right click and pay the vendor 0 Linden dollars.  There is no group required.  When I first visited, I cammed around and was able to buy the dress without actually teleporting to the correct floor.  On my return visit to check the link for you, I used the “area search” function of the Firestorm Viewer under the “World” sub menu, typed in “Verona” and clicked “show beacons,” which allowed me to directly locate the dress and purchase it without using the teleporter at all.  However you get to it, this denim cutie will not disappoint!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Altamura
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Gonna Cross the River to the Jersey Side

Floatsam

Hello Fabulous Readers and Happy Friday!  I hope you had a wonderful week.  Mine was filled with car shopping in RL, which I have decided is definitely NOT my favorite thing to do!  Lucky for the pupster, it was far too hot for him to come along, so he got to spend the time basking in air conditioned comfort at home.  Right at the top of my list of the BEST things to do is to find budget friendly bargains to share with you.  Ripley and I have a couple of really wonderful ones to tell you about tonight!

Jersey Girl

First up, I went strolling along the boardwalk down at the Jersey Shore and discovered this adorable Christina Special Edition Summer Skirt at the Blonde Queen cart for just 10 Linden dollars.  It features a high waist section, criss-crossed lacing and a generously flared, floral print skirt.  I really like the way the bright pink flowers pop against the darker background.  A double row of decorative stitching at the edges of the teal portion of the skirt adds an interesting bit of detail to complement the solid background color.  I opted to pair the skirt with a teal top, but I think pink or white would also go well.  The package includes versions for mesh body avatars only.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Hello Moon Child

Down at the Livia shop, I discovered the Moon Rings that I am wearing as a free gift for members of the Livia Update Group.  A simple crescent moon and triple stones are displayed on slender double bands.  You can wear these baubles on your left or right hand, or both, as I have chosen to do.  The generous designer included a HUD which allows you to select from 8 options for the triple gemstones and 4 metal textures.  To add these free rings to your SL jewelry box, you need to be members of the Livia Update Group, but since there is no join fee, it won’t cost you a single Linden dollar.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Life is Sweet

Watermelon Stripes

Hello there, Fabulouses!  I hope you had a fantastic weekend.  The pupster and I found this tranquil bit of beach over on the LHOOQ sim, and decided there is no better place to wrap up our time off.  The sound of the waves lapping the shore, the cry of gulls and the fresh ocean breeze … ahhh!  It makes me wish I had a house near the shore.   If you are planning on a warm weather get away for yourself, and need a casual outfit, I found the cutest little crop top as a free gift.  I may be dating myself here, but this giftie brought back childhood memories of Fruit Stripe Chewing Gum, which just so happened to be a favorite treat of the young, RL Kat.

Actually, There’s Not Just ONE…

Over at the Sweet Willows shop, the Fruit Stripe Top gift contains not one, but four versions of the flirty tank I am wearing in the photo.  Featuring a dramatic plunging neckline, narrow stripes, and a ruffle trimmed hem, this little number will leave your tummy bare to soak up some rays.  I opted for the melon color scheme, but could have easily chosen blue, teal or grape instead.  Each top is is created exclusively for the Maitreya Mesh Body and is constructed with a colorful pinstriped background fabric adorned with coordinating trim.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the store and look for the package on the wall wrapped with a red ribbon, which is located under the “Spring Has Sprung” poster.  Right click and touch the package (no payment or group needed), and you will be immediately offered the folder.  Easy peasy!

Until my next post, happy shopping!

‘Cause I Know That…

Down on the Dock

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Happy Friday to you!  Ripley and I are popping in with a quick post to tell you about a free outfit (including the boots) that we discovered over at the !Soul store.  It’s another warm weather dress, just in time for summer.

…It’s Delicate

Featuring an off the shoulder style with a wide belt and full skirt, this floral frock has pops of red and orange blossoms scattered across a teal background.  Although the gift does not include versions for mesh avatars, I was able to get a terrific fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara body.  My cute, flat boots, which are decorated with golden studs, coordinate beautifully with the waistband.  There will be no need to worry about finding the perfect shoes to wear with this free ensemble!  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the !Soul group, but there is no join fee, so the Delicate Satin Dress will cost you exactly zero Linden dollars.

Sizes Included:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Includes alpha layers for boots, dress and boots/dress combined

I hope you have a fantastic weekend!  The pupster and I plan to spend time scouting around to see what other Fabulous Finds we can discover to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Looking for a Warm Summer Breeze

Where Music Meets the Ocean

Hello Fabulouses!  It’s good to be back home after camping.  It was so, so cold there, and the pupster and I just had to find some summer time temperatures on SL when we got back.  It actually snowed a bit on Memorial Day.  Now for Love’s neck of the woods, that might not be so unusual, but for our part of the world, that is highly unlikely!  Fortunately, the Lighthouse Oasis sim had just what we needed, and Ambient Fashion provided the cutest summery shirt for our ocean side adventure.  I picked up this halter top as a hunt prize in the Red Diaries Hunt for just 1 Linden dollar.

Lovely Lavender

In addition to coming in one of my favorite colors, the Slaren Halter also features an unusual component created from four black bands connecting the shoulder strap to the neckline.  Black rimmed grommets ensure the cords stay securely fastened.  The right shoulder and the strap around the back of the neck are more traditional, so I decided to pull my hair back to show off the unique left side.  A figure-hugging fit and realistic fabric texture round out the shirt.  The designer thoughtfully included versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars inside the hunt folder, so there’s something for everyone in the package.  All you have to do to add a copy to your inventory is locate the hunt object, which is a book with a Red Shoe Diaries cover, and pay the 1 Linden dollar fee.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Bandana Girl

Bandana Days

Happy Sunday, Fabulouses, and Happy Mother’s Day to all of you who are mothers.  I hope you had a lovely day today.  It was a busy one in RL for me, so I’m popping in quickly to share another free gift that you can pick up just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  This little number is ideal for sultry, warm days and really allows your skin to soak up the summer sun.  The Bandana Top from Sexy Princess features an off the shoulder, cropped style.  A traditional white Bandana pattern splashed across a crimson background sets a Bohemian vibe for the top.  I opted to pair it with cut off shorts, but also toyed with a red maxi skirt.  It’s great to have a shirt that is so flexible that it could go either casual or more dressy!  Best of all, you can scoop up this versatile item completely for free!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique

I promised Ripley a long game of fetch the stick after I finished this post.  He’s getting pretty antsy, so I’d better not keep him waiting too much longer.  There’s no telling what trouble he’ll cause if left alone for too long.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Today I Am Choosing Serenity

Saturdays Are For Taking it Easy

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is going well.  After cleaning up around the house this morning, Ripley and I headed to SL to see if we could discover any Fabulous Finds to share with our favorite readers.  Over at Alias, we came across a complete outfit that you can pick up as a free group gift.  Since it comes with a texture change HUD, this is like getting ten outfits in one!

Casual, Comfortable Serenity

For me, weekends are all about kicking back and taking it easy.  Today was no exception.  I pulled on the faded jeans and cute sleeveless top from my latest acquisition, then headed out to explore the Lakeside sim over at Roleplay Heaven.  While Ripley sniffed around, I found the perfect spot to relax and take a snapshot of the Serenity V1 outfit from Alias.  Featuring comfy denim fabric, snap pockets and vertical accents in the center of each leg, these flared pants hug your curves in all the right places.  The loose fitting tank top has a low cut in the back and is held up with spaghetti style straps.  The generous designer included shoes, which you can’t see due to the angle of my photo, as well as coordinating texture-change HUDs for the top and the shoes packed with ten prints in varying hues.  Although there is no alpha layer, sizes for classic avatars as well as versions for mesh body styles are tucked inside the folder.  To pick up this outfit for yourself, you  need to be a member of the MLM Frees and Offers group, which has a teensy 5 Linden dollar join fee, but this provides the opportunity for you to collect free gifts from a variety of designers all around the grid.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Shoes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP and Tonic

Until my next post, happy shopping!
