Lazy Dog Dayz

Dog Days
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Real life decided to rear its ugly head and dragged me away from SL for awhile, but I sure am glad to be back!  Ripley and I have two sweet hunt gifts to share with you this evening.  I hope you like them as much as I do.  The only caveat is that the hunt ends tomorrow, August 5th, so you will have to head on over to the sim as quickly as possible to scoop them up before they are all gone.

Oh, Those Dog Days of Summer

Paper.Sparrow is hosting an event in their store with 14 prizes up for grabs ranging from bathing suits, to sexy heels to summer shorts and tops, as well as a belted strapless dress.  All of them cost 25 Linden dollars, and as I said earlier, the hunt ends tomorrow.  For today’s post, I’m wearing two of these pieces of summery goodness.  I just love the soft bluish teal color scheme of the separates.  The cropped halter style shirt features lush tropical leaves in a pale hue accented with pink flowers.  Slender shoulder straps ensure that the Floral Blue Amber Top stays securely in place as you travel across the grid.  My Zarah Skirt coordinates perfectly with the top and has the cutest ruffled trim on the waist and hemlines.  Two dangling garter straps add intrigue.  The texture is really well done with realistic folds in the fabric and a subtle shimmer.  I really like the asymmetrical hemline.  To add both of these items to your wardrobe, head on over to the shop and look for teal colored palm trees scattered around.  They are not that difficult to find, and I was able to discover all 14 of them in one short visit.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Until my next post, happy hunting!

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!

My Valentine

My Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day, Fabulouses!  As you can see, I’m spending the holiday in the company of my true Valentine:  Ripely.  I found the perfect clothing for today as I was moving along the trail of the Puppy Love Hunt.  For just 1 Linden dollar and a bit of time hunting around the Southern Sass shop, I came away with a complete outfit.  Now that’s what I call budget-friendly fashion!

Casually Cute

To add the Puppy Love Sweatshirt and Skinny Jeans outfit to your inventory, you’ll be looking for the tiny pet bed concealed in the Southern Sass store.  The prize package includes a cozy sweatshirt with three quarter length sleeves and a cropped hemline.  Two red paw prints and the text “My dog IS my valentine” proclaim to the whole world who holds your heart.  Yep, the pupster certainly has me wrapped around his paw!  Coordinating skinny jeans match the red in the shirt’s graphic, and round out the outfit.  Each piece is worn separately, so you can mix and match with other items in your wardrobe if you like.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Our wish for you on this day of love is that you have a wonderful holiday today.  ❤  Until next time, happy hunting!

Taking Time Out for Some Leaf Peepin’

Time Out for Leaf Peeping

Hello Fabulouses!  One of my favorite parts of autumn (when I lived in a place that actually had four seasons) was going for a stroll in the woods with my pup by my side.  Although I still have a beloved canine, I have to get my leaf peeping fix on Second Life.  After seeing Aline’s posts here and here, Ripley and I decided to check out the Boo Bunny Hunt for ourselves, and came across this gorgeous cropped cowl neck top for just 1 Linden dollar.  

Time to Break Out the Sweaters

When I checked out the prize preview page, I really liked the picture of OMG Inc.’s Ladies Hooded Swarl, so I dusted off Rip’s tracking harness and we headed over to the shop to try our luck.  With the pupster’s talented nose (and the helpful hints page), we quickly discovered the hunt object, a piece of fall candy.  I was thrilled to notice when I opened the prize package that the designer had tucked a texture change HUD with 5 options for colors/patterns inside.  So, for just 1 tiny Linden dollar, it was like I got five different tops in one!  Although it’s not specifically designed for mesh avatars, I was able to get just the right fit by adjusting the alpha layer on my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  This poncho type sweater features a generous folded down cowl neck secured with two chunky buttons, a knitted ribbed texture, and an asymmetrical length which keeps your back toasty warm and allows a sexy glimpse of skin in the front.  I think you could also wear a tank underneath on really chilly days if you’d prefer.  Although I chose to pair the top with a rugged pair of leather pants for a casual look, I think it would also look fab when combined with a skirt.  The sky’s the limit!

Sizes Included:

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

Ripley and I are gonna head back down the hunt path and see what else we can discover.  Yes, Pal, there will be some Ripley Snacks at the end of our journey!  Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Lucky Autumn Jewel

Autumn Jewel Tones

Hello Fabulous Readers!  The other day, Ripley and I were picking up items at a weekend sale over at Siss Boom, and I noticed two Lucky Boards on the wall.  They featured gorgeous cowl neck cropped sweaters in autumn shades.  Of course, with my canine good luck charm by my side, all I had to do was spend a bit of time waiting, then I scurried on home to try out my new sweaters.

As Pretty As the Changing Leaves

Isn’t this dark jewel tone lovely?  The gift box included fits for various mesh body styles and also a fit mesh version for classic avatars, but there was no alpha layer.  I went back to the pre-mesh Kat and the fit mesh worked just fine on my old shape.  I absolutely adore the rich hues in this cropped sweater; they are ideal for fall weather.  The intricate pattern is just so eye-catching!  You do have to be a member of the Siss Boom group to be able to win the free prizes from the Lucky Boards, but there are a ton of group gifts on the wall that you can pick up as well, so your 500L join fee will bring you some fantastic outfits.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh (no alpha layer included, but I didn’t need it for my non-mesh body)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Ripley and I are off for our evening walk.  Until next time, happy shopping!
