It’s All About the Red Dress

Lady in Red

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  In my last post {here}, I told you about a free dress that I picked up over at TRS Designs.  While shopping, I couldn’t help but notice another free group gift, so I’m back to share the Felicia Dress with you today.  As soon as I saw it, I immediately fell in love with its flirty fit and cheery color scheme.

Pretty in Polka Dots

Featuring double lace shoulder straps, a waistline accentuated with crimson band and a flared skirt that falls to the upper thigh, this dress is perfect for a party.   The bodice, which hugs your curves, has a wide v-shaped neckline, and is trimmed in the same red ribbon as the waist and hem.  With its brilliant background and darling dotty pattern, you’re sure to draw admiring glances your way.  The folder includes fitmesh for classic avatars as well as versions for mesh bodies, which makes this a versatile gift.  To grab a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the TRS Designs group, but since it costs nothing to join, you can add this little number to your wardrobe completely for free.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Ripley and I are off to see what other Fabulous Finds we can discover for our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Oh Henlo, Fren

Hello Friend

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Monday!  After doing a little shopping, the pupster and I went for a walk this afternoon and made a new friend over at the Haraiki Bay sim.  If you are looking for a lovely, tranquil place to explore, I’d highly suggest a visit.  I’d also recommend a trip over to TRS Designs, which is where I picked up my new denim mini dress as a free group gift.

As Blue as the Summer Sky

The Camila Dress features a low cut back, slender shoulder straps and a mesh insert at the neckline.  Vertical seams and slits on either hip add visual interest to the faded denim fabric.  This little number hugs all your curves and is perfect for warmer temperatures.  There are versions for classic as well as mesh avatars in the folder, so there is something for everyone inside.  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the TRS Designs group, but there is no join fee, so the dress is completely free.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Sky at Midnight

If Only You Were Here

Hello Fabulous Readers!  While out on one of our meandering walks around the grid, Ripley and I popped into TRS Designs on a whim.  It didn’t take long for me to spot a gorgeous gown on the Midnight Madness board.  Since the target was just 20 people, I tapped the board, then crossed my fingers.

At the Stroke of Midnight…

Well, actually, it was quite a few hours after the clock struck twelve before I logged back in again.  Nevertheless, I was super happy to see the notification offering me the Trix Dress in Sky.  I quickly slipped into the frock and admired my new look.  It features a dusky blue bodice accented with decorative white stitching, and a long hemline that drapes from a high waist. This dress is ideal for a casual afternoon or a night on the town, depending on how you accessorize.  I just love the way the skirt is crafted with a wash of color in varying shades from a cream to an almost teal blue.  It’s just so pretty!  With only a narrow strap around your neckline, Trix leaves your back deliciously bare.  With sizes for classic as well as mesh bodies, this prize includes something for everyone.  Best of all, it’s completely free, and with the low target number, your chance of receiving the package is really high.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I couldn’t resist including a peek at the back view of Trix.  I hope you like it!

If Only

Until next time, good luck and happy shopping!

Silver Girl

Silver Girl
Hello there, Fabulous Readers  and Happy Friday at last!  I’m super excited about my post today because Ripley and I have a special surprise to share with you in just a bit.  We hope you enjoy it!

Silky Soft Sweater

I know I’ve blogged about TRS Designs quite a bit lately, but there are so many lovely gifts there that I just can’t resist returning again and again.  My high necked Meghan sweater is my latest Fabulous Find at the shop.  With sleeves that completely cover my wrists and an extra long waistline, I could see myself wearing this top in real life (I can never find sleeves long enough for my arms).  I really like its realistic folded texture and silvery sheen.  This cozy winter top is a free gift for members of the TRS Designs group, which is completely free to join!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

It’s Full Bento and It’s Free?!

This week, I heard about a Bento AO that new residents (under 90 days) can pick up for free at the SEmotion in-world store.  The SEmotion Newbie Girl AO HUD includes four stand poses, three sits, two ground sits, an athletic jump, Bento hand movements, and a sassy walk animation.  This is one sweet deal!  You haven’t been left out fellas – there is also a male version available.  If you’ve been in SL a bit longer than 90 days, you can scoop up this animation override for just 1 little Linden dollar at the SEmotion Marketplace shop.  It’s really cute!  In order to take advantage of the full Bento capabilities of this HUD, you need a Bento avatar, but I tested it on a classic avatar, and other than the hands being different, it worked just fine.  I knew I wanted to feature this AO in a blog post, but I really didn’t think a still picture would do it justice, so I tried my hand at creating a video about it for you.  It’s my first attempt at vlogging, and I know I have a lot to learn, but I hope you watching enjoy it!

Well, that’s a wrap for tonight.  Thank you for reading (and checking out the vlog post).  Until next time, happy shopping!

Midnight Violet

Pretty in Purple
Hello Fabulous Readers!  The other day, when the pupster and I visited TRS Designs, I spotted this gorgeous violet gown on a Midnight Madness board.  It took several attempts before I popped in this morning to discover an inventory offer from the shop.  I couldn’t wait to try on the Sandra Gown!  With its slender decorative straps, eye-catching, lace net waistline, and flattering fit, this free elegant frock is sure to become a favorite of mine for evenings out on the town.  The long skirt offers full coverage along with a slightly flared hemline for ease of movement on the dance floor, while the halter-style neckline allows a sensual glimpse of skin. I thought the bows at the bodice offered just the right decorative element.  There is no group required to enter to win.  All you have to do is travel to the shop, tap the Midnight Madness board, and cross your fingers.  With a low target of only 20 avatars, the odds are in your favor that you will soon possess your very own copy of this lovely outfit.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes lace alpha)
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping to you!

Crossing That Bridge

Crossing That Bridge
Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  Thank goodness, it’s almost the weekend 🙂  It’s been a bit chilly where Ripley and I are in RL, and that has me longing for spring.  I found the perfect warmer-weather mini dress as a free group gift for members of the Mesh Body Friends Group.  When I saw the cerulean and white floral print, I knew it was just the thing to chase my winter blues away, so I immediately tapped the vendor and added Camila to my collection.

Crossing the Bridge from Winter to Spring

Well, I’ll be decked out in style and ready for that bridge if I ever *do* find it, thanks to TRS Deisgns!  With versions for mesh bodies, as well as classic avatars tucked inside the package, this cheerful little number is a versatile addition to your SL wardrobe.  I love the way it hugs my curves in all the right places.  The skinny spaghetti straps allow your shoulders to soak up some sun and a sexy slit in the side provides freedom of movement as well as a tantalizing glimpse of skin.  I opted to add a cropped denim jacket, but as the day warms up, I’m sure I will slip it off.  Since the Mesh Body Friends group is free to join, I was able to pick up this outfit with plenty of Linden dollars leftover for Ripley snacks, which made a certain someone wag his tail with delight!  The generous designer has a wall full of eleven other group gifts, so if you decide to scoop up a copy of this frock for yourself, be sure to check out all the offers.

Until my next post, happy shopping!

Of Counts and Mince Pies

Of Counts and Mince Pies

The Holiday Season is upon us, and that calls for cute dresses galore!  I was invited to a party by some dude who calls himself “Count Ladislaus”.  He said there would be mulled wine, and mince pies, and all sorts, so I rummaged through my inventory, but alas, no appropriate frock was to be found!   I bundled myself up, and jumped out into the cold to find something that would look festive and not break the bank.

Eureka!

My taxi dropped me off in front of TRS Designs, where there were several group gifts to be had!  The TRS Designs group is free to join, to which I said “huzzah!”.  The Midnight Madness boards caught my fancy as they have rather low goal (20 slaps and you win!) , so I gave them a tap.  Only a few minutes later, and much to my delight, there was a lovely free dress in my inventory!

That evening, I donned my dress, buckled my shoes, got my hair did, and headed to the party!  Turns out Count Ladislaus was nothing but a Baronet, and the mince pies were overcooked.  I guess you can’t have everything in this Second Life!

Enchantress

Enchantress

Sometimes when the mood strikes, I become a little bit…witchy.  I was inspired by some gifts I picked up at the Hashtag Black on Black Event to become an Enchantress of the snow!  I dunno guys… you can be anything in SL, right?

White on White

There are quite a few gifts out at the Hashtag event, some for free, some for a small fee.  I picked up the Amelia dress at the TRS designs booth, and immediately liked the damask patterning.  It also made me think of freshly fallen snow, all crisp and white! The Amelia dress comes in sizes from XXS to L, and costs a measly 1L, so go grab it!

Enchanting Pose

Another gift I found at the Hashtag event was a free pose by Sam Poses that made me think of someone calling forth the snow.  Very fancy.  There are three poses in this gift, and I noted afterwards that it came with skulls you can hold in your hands if you so desire.  Clearly I needed no skulls for my snowy moment!

The Hashtag Black on Black event is open until November 30th so you’d better hurry up to grab this enchanting look!
