Pumpkin Picking Time

Pumpkin Time

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Isn’t this outfit just darling?  It was perfect for a little impromptu pumpkin picking adventure on a warm autumn day.  Ripley and I discovered it on our latest trip to The Cart Wash Sale.  I love the criss-cross lacing on the Classy Chics Designer Top and the way the Denim Mesh Shorts hug my every curve.  Both are designed specifically for the Maitreya mesh body and are available at the Classy Chics display at The Cart Wash.  The overlapping semi circles on my blouse create a pleasing, sophisticated pattern, and the dangling laces add a whimsical touch.  If you’d prefer a different texture, there are nine choices available in all.  At only 10L per selection, I scooped up a variety!  My shorts came with a color change HUD which includes 9 options, so it’s like getting 9 different pairs of shorts for just 50L.  Now that’s a real deal!

On the Trail of Another Fabulous Find

Speaking of deals, the pupster just put his nose to the ground at The Cart Wash, and insistently began pulling me, making a beeline for a display across the way.  That can only mean one thing – my hound with a nose for fashion is on to another great deal for us to share with you.  We will undoubtedly be back soon with another budget-friendly Fabulous Find.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Things That Go Bump in the Night

Things That Go Bump in the Night

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I sure had a scare as visited the Halloweentown Sim.  There we were, just minding our own business, when I heard the crunch of gravel behind us.  Each of us froze, and silently stared at the other.  “Did you hear that?” my eyes sent a telepathic message to the pupster.  “Uh huh,” he silently agreed.  I turned and looked behind us, but saw nothing except the darkness and empty night air.  As soon as we started walking once again, the dreadful noise continued, edging closer and closer.  I whipped around, and as you can see, my brave defender hightailed it for safer ground while I was left cringing in fear.  To his credit, when he realized I wasn’t running beside him, Ripley did return, though.  He let loose a ferocious growl, which startled the shambling skeleton just long enough for me to gather my wits and take off, running full speed, with canine feet churning up the ground with me.  Luckily, we were able to escape just in the nick of time!

A Halloween Sweater for A Frightful Adventure

The evening was brisk, but I stayed toasty warm in my Tasha Halloween Variation sweater from Elgund and Nilsson at The Cart Wash.  With cheerful pumpkin and cat faces, stars, and moons scattered across a charcoal background, I was perfectly outfitted for the upcoming holiday.  I love the thick, chunky knit of this long sweater.  All I needed to complete my look as a pair of tights and long leather boots.  Best of all, this cozy pullover is a free gift for the Tenth Anniversary of the Cart Wash, which you can find in the small green box embellished with a pink ribbon in front of the vendor display.  Simply right click and buy for 0L.  Easy peasy!

Sizes Included:

  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • XL
  • alpha layer for classic avatars

I hope that is the last Ripley and I will see of wandering skeletons.  Our encounter was far too close for comfort!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Do You Believe in Magic?

Do You Believe in Magic?

Happy Wednesday, Fabulous Readers! Today, Ripley and I bring your our final find from The Cart Wash Sale.  You’ll find my lovely White Magic frock at the Baci Shop.  I know, I know, you’re probably thinking “Time to get your eyes checked, Kat – that dress is NOT white!”  I felt like being the Lady in Red today, so I used the texture change HUD, which is tucked inside the package, to alter the hue of my dress to this deep crimson.  If red is not your color, you have 8 other options available to you, including white.  Featuring side cut outs, fastened with buckle straps, and a generously flared skirt, this summer dress will keep you pleasantly cool on the hottest afternoon.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya

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!

Where the Wild Flowers Grow

Where the Wild Flowers Grow

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing weekend!  Ripley and I started it off with a long walk in the woods at the beautiful Hobbiton Sim.  If you haven’t visited there, it’s well worth the trip.  The landscaping is beautifully done, and there are so many lovely spots to snap pictures, as well as places for dancing, chatting, and even some light-hearted role play.

Let Us Dance in The Sun With Wildflowers in Our Hair

For only 10L each, I created a casual and care free, bohemian summer look with a sweet top and denim micro mini from the Baci Shop stand at The Cart Wash.  The Babado top left my shoulders free to soak up some sun rays, and draped in soft folds to end above my waist.  Ric rac trim added a playful finishing touch to the bottom hemline.  Trendy and chic, a crop top is a summer wardrobe must-have, in my book.  Just in case white isn’t your style, the package includes a HUD with 80 choices so you can tint your Babado top to your liking.  The white hue of the shirt coordinated beautifully with my micro mini skirt.  The soft touch of lace trim helped tie together the outfit and added a romantic feel.

Playing off the bohemian vibe, I chose to wear a crown of daisies in my hair and held a bouquet of wildflowers for my photo, which I found at the La & Li Style shop on the Marketplace for only 35L.  A pretty, yellow, animated butterfly is included with the posies.  The cute little critter slowly flapped its wings, as it perched on a daisy.  If you’d like to wear a different hairstyle, an orchid for your hair is nestled inside the box for you to tuck in your tresses.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in sizes XS, M, XL
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Uh Oh…

As I have been sitting here writing my post, some clods of dirt just sailed through the air at the edge of my vision. Ripley, tired of waiting for me to finish, wandered off and decided to do some excavating in a flowerbed at the Broadfoot Residence.  Oh dear, I’d better go see if I can repair the damages… I do hope we won’t be in too much trouble!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

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

There’s Going To Be a Heat Wave

A Hundred Reasons

Happy Friday, Fabulouses!  I’m popping in with a quick post about a fabulous deal waiting for you at The Wash Springtacious Cart Sale, which runs until April 12th.  After seeing Carson’s post {HERE} and Love’s post {HERE}, Ripley and I decided to mosey on over to The Wash to see if we could uncover some budget-friendly fashion finds to share with our wonderful readers.  Sure enough, at the first stall we checked out, we found a darling mini dress.

It’s Rather Hot Around Here…

For only 10L, you can scoop up this fuchsia, floral frock from One Hundred’s cart.  With subtle slits that offer a tantalizing glimpse of thigh, and spaghetti straps that leave my skin free to soak up some rays of sun, the Heatwave dress is a sexy little number that is sure to become a summer favorite of mine.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Belleza Venus, Isis and Freya, Maitreya, and Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Heatwave bow (silly me, I didn’t notice the bow until after I snapped the picture)

There are so many budget-friendly fabulous finds at the Cart Wash just waiting to be discovered.  Ripley and I are going to continue our stroll around the sim, and search for more treasures to share with you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Fall for Vintage

Fall for Vintage

The Cart Wash Sale is well under way and I just fell in love with this Vintage set in brown from Orquidea. These are applier pieces that come separately for just 10L each, and also include a system layer for non-mesh avatars as well.

10L will get you the shirt in a system layer and appliers for Maitreya or Belleza. An additional 10L will get you the jeans in the same, with the addition of sculpty cuffs at the ankles for a pretty and realistic look. If you prefer shorts, there are shorts also available. I’m sporting the set in brown, but there was a pretty set available in red as well!

The Cart Wash Sale is still going strong. I stopped by today to have a look around and found myself picking up a classic essential at the Ruckus Cart — a polo shirt. This polo shirt will only set you back 10L, comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes a color change Hud with six texture choices. The choices include a classic solid black, a classic solid grey, and 4 different striped colored polos. You really can’t go wrong with 6 shirts for 10L.
