Sweater Weather

Dog Days

Sweater Weather is Here and I Love It

Fall has officially arrived, and it seems like the weather has changed overnight. I’ll miss the warm summer days, but there’s just something exciting about crisp, cool autumn air and the changing colors of the leaves.

I picked up this shirt and sweater combo from Loordes of London as part of the I Love School Hunt. Though it’s actually meant to be worn as a dress, I decided that it was a bit too chilly out here, so I added a pair of jeans. The SL Retro Look top comes in standard mesh sizes XXS-L, as well as for Belleza mesh bodies.

The I Love School Hunt ends on September 30th, and all items are 1L.

I think it’s time for us to head inside for some hot chocolate.

Happy hunting! ❤

The Meadow Makes it All Better

Across the Meadow

Hello Fabulouses!  It’s almost Friday….phew!  After spilling my drink on my keyboard (not recommended by the way!), and a trip out in the heat to buy a replacement, Ripley and I really needed a walk across a cool, green meadow.  Lucky for us, we found the perfect spot for a relaxing stroll on the Lemon Beach sim.  I felt the stress of the day fade away with each step on the springy grass.  Now, this is the way to end the day!

Just One Little Linden

While browsing the Marketplace, I came across a sweet deal to share with you today.  My form fitting, fitted mesh mini dress can be yours for just one linden dollar at the Avale shop on the Marketplace.  With a plunging neckline, narrow shoulder straps, and a realistic texture, this dress is sure to be a summer favorite of mine.  In addition to the milky white version I chose to wear today, a texture change HUD allows you to select red or black as well.  I really like the way my shoulders are free to soak in some summer sunshine with my new frock.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Hopefully, liquids will stay far away from my new keyboard…. I’d rather remain indoors in the air conditioning, and out of rush hour traffic.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Dreaming of Infinity

Timeless

Hello Fabulouses!  Happy weekend to you!  Ripley and I found a sweet free mini dress to share with you today, and combined it with some budget-friendly accessories to create my look.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Covered With White Lace

The foundation for today’s outfit is the light and airy Lace Mini from AlmaMiranda.   The free, June gift for members of the AlmaMiranda group, this sexy little sleeveless number features a high collar and a creamy white hue.  It hugs all your curves and offers a tantalizing glimpse of skin.   If you are daring, you can just wear the dress alone.  It is a bit see-through, so I chose to don a lacey lingerie set underneath, and pulled on a cropped denim jacket to cover up.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Lace mini in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Infinity

The Finishing Touch

For my one piece of jewelry, I slipped on the Bento Infinity Ring from Misha Jesuil, which I discovered for the promotional price of only 10L on the Marketplace.  This simple, yet elegant thumb ring is designed only for Maitreya Bento hands and required no adjusting whatsoever.  I’m not sure how long this special price will last, so if you would like to scoop up this charming bauble for yourself, I’d recommend doing so soon.

I hope you find time for some rest, relaxation, and shopping therapy for yourself this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Throwback Thursday: I’ve Lost My Head!

Throwback Thursday

Going Old School

I’m not wearing my mesh head today, and I’m feeling like a bit of a “throwback.” 😉

But it’s all for a good reason: Glam Affair is having a retirement sale on their older system skins, Angelica, Cleo, Katra, and Rosa. Full-line system skins have been marked down from 999L to 399L for single makeups, and fatpacks are just 1200L per skin tone.

Also on sale are Nyam Nyam mouth appliers, Slink Visage appliers, and special edition/event system skins, which are only 100L each!

So if you’re not a mesh head wearer – and many residents are not – this is a great time to pick up some lovely system skins from Glam Affair. The sale will run until mid-April so don’t delay! (Note: mesh body appliers are not part of the sale.)

On to the Free Stuff!

As Love mentioned, Designer Circle is celebrating its 6th anniversary and 150th round this month. Many of the participating designers have set out some fantastic gifts, all of which are free or just 1L, with no group join required.

One of those gifts is this pretty Tule and Leather Dress from Posh Pixels. I really like the detailed texturing (I think it’s materials-enabled?)! The dress comes with a 6-color texture-change HUD, and in the following sizes:

  • Standard mesh XXS-L with alpha layer
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • The Mesh Project

Top to Toe

My cute booties are by Fri.day for the current round of The Arcade, and they can be yours for a 50L pull of the gacha machine. They are available in 8 colors (including 2 rares) and are sized for Maitreya and Slink feet. I love how the lacy detail on the toes matches my lacy skirt!

Last but not least… I never feel “complete” without a handbag, so I decided to pop over to what used to be my go-to accessory store: Duh! The store had moved since I was last there, and much of the older inventory is gone. But you can still pick up some great shoes and accessories at a very reasonable price. The Falling Leaves Clutch is only 25L, which is a great deal just for one color, but… you also get blue, brown, and red in the box – woohoo! ❤

High Glam

High Glam
Hello Hello Fab Free’rs, is it really Monday already? I have no idea where the weekend went, which at one point in my life might have meant I had a really fun weekend. These days, not so much! Ha! I did have a few moments to myself to do a little shopping, because really, in a perfect world that’s what weekends would be for.

High Glam

In honor of the recently celebrated Women’s Day, Hilly Haalan put out a special FREE group gift at the shop’s landing point. I do love that we have a day to honor the women of the world. I am also of the opinion that every day is Women’s Day however. All day, e’ery day! So while I didn’t get to this gift in time for the official celebration day, I’m excited to show this cute cropped sweater just the same. The gift top comes in fitted mesh sizes for the major mesh bodies, as well as a fitmesh size for classic avatars that has a matching alpha. This is a FREE group gift. You will need to join the Hilly Haalan group, which is also FREE to join.

Pixie Fluff

If you’re wondering about this fabulously green hair, it’s at the March round of The Arcade. I’m a sucker for cute hair in general, but this style by Clawtooth was a need-to-have! The Clawtooth machine at The Arcade has 2 hairstyles, this one is called Pixie Fluff, love that, and it comes with an additional hud so you  can change the color of the little clip on the side. The Clawtooth gacha at The Arcade is 75 lindens per play.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hair – Clawtooth: Pixie Fluff (8: Magic Pack) – 75L/play @The Arcade

Hair base – Just Magnetized – Basic Hairbase – set 10 for CATWA

Into the Woods

Snapshot9_001f

Oh, Christmas Tree?

When Carson IM’d me last night to ask if I could come and help him with his Christmas tree, I assumed that he just needed some help with the decorating. Or perhaps he needed help picking out a tree at the pixel tree store.

Wrong.

I tp’d over to Carson’s location, and found myself in the middle of the woods, where he had just finished cutting down a huge tree. Apparently, he needed my help to wrangle the tree onto his sled so the dogs could haul it home.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to Carson, never assume.

Thankfully, we managed to load the tree onto his sled fairly quickly. Although, at one point, he unintentionally de-rendered the tree, and had to log out and back in as I waited in the woods wondering if there were any pixel bears around (there weren’t). We managed to get the tree back to Carson’s place, where I accidentally fell out of his skybox and into the water. At that point, I decided that I’d had enough excitement for one night, and let Carson finish up on his own.

And from the look of things, he made out pretty well.

As for me, I’m still picking the pine needles out of my hair (and a few other places). 😛

Last Chance Advents

Before heading out on the tree adventure, I threw on this festive layered jacket from GizzA. I think it’s meant to be worn as a dress, but I decided to add a pair of jeans… which, in hindsight, was a very good idea, since I wound up sitting on a pine tree. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with alpha layer), as well as for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, and SLink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies.

I picked up these cute boots by fri.day at The Arcade. This pair came from the gacha machine (50L per play), but as Love mentioned you can find a free version in a different color under the Christmas tree. The boots are resizeable, and should work with whichever mesh body (or not) you are wearing.

Oh, and the hair! Analog Dog makes some of my most favorite curly ‘dos on the grid, and when I saw this hairstyle on Love, I just knew that I had to have it. If you HURRY, you can still pick it up in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar (not sure which day)!

Another advent calendar to race over to ASAP is the one at Snowpaws. You can’t see them unless you zoom waaay in close, but I am wearing a pair of Christmas bulb earrings and an ornament necklace from the Snowpaws advent calendar (again, I’m not sure which day, but all of the days were still available at the time of this post).

Finally, this cute dog sled pose prop is by Come Soon Poses. It includes the tree, the sled, about 6 dogs, and all of the scenery you see here (and a bunch that you don’t). Carson picked it up as one of the free group gifts for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar – hurry over and you can grab this one, too!

(Hopefully next time, Carson will pick up a free CAR with a heater instead of a dog sled!)

Merry Christmas, everyone! 🙂

Right Here Waiting

K&A Design (Cart Sale) LDR Justin Trousers FA Red Sneakers MoonAmore+Cureless - Xmas Owl Scarf

“Wait here,” she says, “I’ll just be a few minutes….”

That was an hour ago and it has started to snow. But here I sit, because I was asked to.  I’m wearing a few old (previously blogged) items, because they have become some of my favorites this holiday season, and some new items I hope will become favorites. Let’s start with the old… From The Wash Cart Sale, I’m wearing the K&A Design Winter Red Sweater that I first showed [HERE]. This seems to be one of my go to items in my closet lately. It’s just $10L on the K&A Design cart. I’m also wearing the ARGRACE  Santa Hat 2016 FREE Group Gift that I showed [HERE].

“Watch these bags while I check out the store over there…”

OMG! How long is this going to take… I joined the LDR  group for FREE and picked up the Justin Trousers as a FREE Group Gift.  I also joined the Full Addiction group, again for FREE,  and got the Red Sneakers as a FREE gift.

MoonAmore+Cureless - Xmas Owl Scarf

This is for the birds…

Waiting here in the cold and the snow… I’ll most probably get sick before Christmas. At least I have my little owl friend to keep me company. The Xmas Owl Scarf  by MoonAmore+Cureless is a FREE gift under the Christmas tree at The ArcadeThis little guy has his wings out, but there is also a scarf with him perched safely on the scarf. Finally, -sigh-  Here she comes…  No! Don’t go in the pet store…..
