Fit for a Lady

Enchanted_001_001

Roleplay is always near and dear to my heart, so when I find an outfit or dress for a bargain that I can share with you dear Fabulouses, I am thrilled! I was opening my Womenstuff Hunt gifts and ran across a gown that would be perfect for roleplay and wanted to share it with you.

Fit for a Lady

I stopped by Tiffany Designs and after a little hunting for the free red t-shirt, I picked up their Womenstuff gift and brought it home to unpack. It’s a lovely formal gown that is suitable for any formal occasion but also perfect for roleplay settings as well. It includes the gown I am showing above, as well as a white fur shoulder stole, a gold necklace, and long flowing sleeves. I’m only wearing the dress itself for the purpose of the picture.

Dress size fits:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

A Cabin in the Woods

11-21-2017

 

One can dream…

One of my secret fantasies (no this isn’t getting naughty, sorry) is to be snowed in at a remote cabin. There is something very rustic about this dream (of course I would need internet). With plenty of books to read and watching the snow fall out the window, I believe it would be quite enjoyable for me…

Dreams aren’t the only things free…

I stopped by The Menstuff Lounge and found that the sim has once again changed. All the gift for all the ‘Stuff groups are on display along the street.  I happened across the gift provided by Tiffany Designs. The Andrew Casual Outfit includes the shirt, pants and shoes in sizes XS-XL, and looks warm enough for the coldest cabin.  While the gift is FREE, The Menstuff group does have a one time join fee of 50L.

I’ll see you in the spring….

Fab Free Designer Friday – 01/13/2017 – Tiffany Designs

Tiffany Designs FFDFHello Fab Free! It’s time for this week’s Fab Free Designer Friday. Even though it’s been a long week, I’m always happy for Friday. This week I’m going to share with you Tiffany Designs. This shop has been around for a little while and my recent visit to the Tiffany Designs main store showed me just how much this once small shop has grown into an elegantly established shop. As you browse the first floor, you’ll notice live models among the classy decor. It’s nice to see some of the outfits on an avatar before you purchase.

Tiffany Designs is well known for beautiful formal wear and mostly women’s mesh and applier clothing, however there is a generous amount of classy men’s clothing as well. Almost immediately as you enter the store, you’ll be greeted by a FREE group gift for Tiffany Designs group members. To the right from where the gift vendor stands, you’ll also find a wall of recent men’s and women’s group gifts, as well as the Tiffany Designs group joiner. The group does have a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however as you can see there are a generous number of gifts. Also, group members get a discount on purchases.
Tiffany Designs FFDFAlso, at the entrance of the Tiffany Designs store, you’ll see the usual information wall that shows all the current and up-coming events, along with other associations and partnerships. As you’re browsing through all the elegant clothing at Tiffany Designs, make your way to the back left of the first floor and you’ll be met with an enormous wall of FREE items, Promos, and other group gifts. Here is where you’ll also find the Fab Free exclusive group gift. Don’t forget, you’ll need your Fab Free group tag active to get this gift. We saw this lovely gift in Kathryn’s post here. The gifts under the glittering “FREE GIFTS” sign are FREE for everyone, with no need to wear a group tag. In addition to all the shopping in the expansive first floor, there is an entire second floor to browse. You’ll definitely want to spend the afternoon at Tiffany Designs, Happy Shopping!

I’ll Keep You Warm

Snapshot_002

See? I don’t know how it happens… The goofy furballs just follow me home wherever I go!  I found these little guys chasing eachother’s tails, bouncing through the snow drifts on The Winter Trace Sim while I was out for my morning walk today.  One of them extra snuggly, and the other extra playful. I should keep them right? 😀  There is always room for two more, right Serena? (Serena always has my back in this department).

What’s Keeping Me Warm Today

I picked up these two little guys and snuggled them warm in my big comfy sweater (which is incidentally now completely covered in mud and white fur *sighs*) that I picked up as a free gift at The Wash Cart Sale!  When I initially saw the Mimi Mesh Sweater Gift at the Tiffany Designs display, I thought it was just the sweater, but upon opening it, it does indeed include the pants too!  Just pay the vendor 0L and this outfit is yours!

Sizes included:

  • Sweater:  Fitmesh XS-L w/ alpha, Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, TMP
  • Pants:  System Layer & Appliers for Maitreya, Omega, Belleza, Slink, TMP

Boots, To Boot.

You can find these Nyka Boots, available in black or brown for just 10L each at The Wash Cart Sale as well – only these you’ll find at the Urbania display.  These do come with an alpha layer if you need it, and you can shift them around so whatever feet you have – they’ll work.

The Pupperdoodles…

You can play for these cute little Holiday Huskies at The Arcade Gacha for 50L per play.  Some you hold, some you rez – all are cute!

First Flurries

First Flurries

A Few Flurries in the Forecast…

This newest group gift from Tiffany Designs had me thinking about the holidays and the first possible flurries of snowfall… so I headed for a photogenic sim with snow in place to take my picture of it for you.

This is the Henry vintage suit and it comes in one piece for easy fitting. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes as well as an alpha layer.

Past Group Gifts Still Available!

If it looks familiar, it’s because Tiffany Design’s has put this fabulous suit out before as a group gift, except in a different color. In fact, there are currently four other group gifts out that you can pick up in addition to this suit shown above. You can preview three of the four here:

Perfectly Posh in Pearls

Glancing Back

Happy Saturday, wonderful readers!  This morning, Ripley and I started our weekend the way we always do… reading the Fabulously Free in SL blog.  While I was admiring Loki’s sensuous photo here, Ripley insistently nosed the Group Gift Listing link in the corner of the Fab Free web page.  Of course, with my pooch’s gift for finding fashion, I immediately followed his lead and discovered not one, but two, new, free, fabulous gifts for Fab Free group members that, in my mind, coordinate with each other spectacularly.

With a few quick teleports and clicks, I became the proud new owner of Posh Tale’s free, elegant Margot gown and Tiffany Designsfree back necklace.   The opulent sheen of the double stranded pearls contrasts beautifully with the subtle shimmer of the floor length, formal gown.  From the front, the necklace appears to be a traditional pearl strand, but from behind, it drapes beautifully and emphasizes the line of your back.  I love the way the dress leaves my shoulders bare to feel the caress of the moonlight.  The gown includes a HUD that allows you to select one of 16 colors, and comes in 5 sizes for classic avatars.  Although there was no applier for mesh bodies, I was able to wear the gown just fine by adjusting the alpha on my Maitreya Lara body.  After adding simple pearl studs from Caroline’s jewelry, and slipping on some black heels (more on these shoes in my blog post coming tomorrow), I accompanied Ripley to the outdoor ballroom at the Invictus sim.

Perfectly Posh

While the night breeze ruffled Ripley’s fur, we wandered around the grounds of this beautifully decorated sim, which is inspired by the poem of the same name by William Ernest Henley.  It’s a Linden Endowment for the Arts exhibit and is well worth exploring.  I discovered the Invictus sim by reading this blog post by Ziki Questi.  It has more in depth information if you are interested, and is enjoyable to read.  Periodically, falling stars blazed a trail across the purple and mauve streaked sky while we walked around.  Legend has it that if you wish upon a shooting star, your wish will come true.  Here’s hoping that all your wishes come true this weekend.  Until tomorrow, happy shopping!

Sunday Casual

Sunday Bridges

It’s casual Sunday for me… and though this outfit I picked up as the latest group gift from Tiffany Designs is hardly ordinary, it’s just dressy enough to be called business casual. It includes a pair of slacks and a sweater with a geometric design on it, both in all the standard mesh sizes. You’ll also get a pair of shoes for system feet, though I opted to wear my own in the picture above.

The Tiffany’s group is 100L to join, but after joining you’ll have access to this gift as well as four other past group gifts for men that are still out. You can see two that were previously blogged [Here] and [Here]. So you definitely get your money’s worth. You’ll need to pay the vendor 1L to get the gift, but that is immediately refunded to you.

Have a great Sunday afternoon!
