I’ll Meet You at Low Tide

Boho Beach

Happy Almost-Friday, Fabulouses!  I’m looking forward to a couple of days off when I will have more time to check out all of the amazing bargains over at the Cart Sale currently taking place at The Wash.  I popped in quickly on opening day to take a peek around, and scooped up this lovely teal and purple maxi dress.  It has been a crazy busy work week for me in RL, but when it’s done, Ripley and I are going to enjoy some more budget friendly retail therapy at The Wash.

Boho Beauty

At the Mishmash Fusion cart, my eyes were immediately drawn to the Low Tide Beach Dress.  With a layered, ankle length skirt covered with botanical prints, and a coordinating teal off-the-shoulder bodice, this frock features a free spirited Boho vibe that is perfect for lazy end of summer days.  The combination of colors is just so pretty!  One of the best parts of shopping at The Wash is discovering a number of gorgeous “must haves” for my inventory, but not having to worry that I will break the bank.  This super sweet summer dress came with an equally sweet price tag – just 10 little Linden dollars, which leaves plenty in the coffers for a more leisurely shopping spree over the weekend.  I can hardly wait!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

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!

Somewhere in Lost Lagoon

Lost Lagoon

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m popping in quickly on this Monday evening to share a hunt prize that I scooped up along the Peace by Peace Hunt 2 path.  The package includes the complete outfit (minus flip flops and necklace), all for just 1L.  That makes it a super thrifty Fabulous Find!  Ladies, don’t despair, there is a female hunt gift hidden for you in the shop, too!

Stripes and Solids

With a t-shirt (I know, I know I didn’t wear it for my picture), a long sleeved button down shirt, and khaki colored shorts, I’m ready for just about any weather summer will direct my way.  My olive green top features gleaming buttons, shoulder straps, and solid pockets.  The knee length shorts include coordinated striped cuffs and a handy belt.  Since it was a warm spring day when I snapped my photo, I opted not to wear the white t-shirt that the designer thoughtfully tucked inside the box.  With three fitmesh versions, as well as classic mesh included in the package, it was easy to find the right fit for my Belleza Jake body.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply head over to Dark Water Designs and locate the puzzle piece concealed within.  Once you do, pay one Linden dollar, and this look is all yours!

What’s Included:

  • Fitmesh version 1, 2 and 3 (with and without the t-shirt)
  • Classic mesh in S, M, L (with and without the t-shirt)
  • Shorts in 4 sizes
  • Alpha layer for shirts (with and without t-shirt)
  • Alpha layer for shorts

I’m off to see what other items I can discover along the hunt trail.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

I’m Gonna Take You Surfin’ With Me

See You on the Next Wave

Since Kat hasn’t stopped going on about her relaxing getaway to the beach, I decided it was my turn.  I loaded up my board, and made a quick trip to the surf over at Baja Tides, blasting music by the Beach Boys the whole way.  Luckily, my new shorts had me all set to catch some waves in style.

Celebrate the Start of May Just a Tiny Bit Early

It might still be the end of April, but I came across my first May group gift this morning at Amazing Creations.  With a dark belt, a teal background, and a fun tropical print, these shorts are just right for my surfing safari.  Classic and mesh body versions come side by side in the free gift package, so this summer staple is sure to fit most guys.  The best part about it all?  The Amazing Creations group is completely free to join, so my new look didn’t cost a single Linden dollar.  Now, my board’s a whole other story…

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

Let’s go surfing now!  Come on a safari with me…

Far Better Things Ahead

Far Better Things Ahead
Happy New Year, Fabulouses!  After reading about Love and Carson’s New Year’s Eve mis-adventures {HERE}, {HERE}, and {HERE}, I gained a new appreciation for the quiet evening I spent in the company of my canine pal, Ripley.   No last minute trip to the dog park with his pals to share a few Ripley snacks, no lampshade on his head, just a peaceful stroll through The Winter Forest sim, contemplating the big changes we went through in 2016, and anticipating better days ahead in 2017.

Ringing in the New With Style

As I was considering what to wear on my New Year’s Eve, I was happy to see a message from Astrid about the gorgeous and free Christmas Dress 2016 from The Beautiful Ones.  She said it is a lovely gown, and boy, was she right on the money.  Thank you so much, Astrid, for the tip!  Ripley and I scrambled over to TBO, activated the group tag, and quickly scooped up the formal frock.  With a join fee of only 25L, you will have access to promos and gifts, as well as mania boards, and a group-only lucky chair upstairs.  Featuring glistening gold accents, and a long, flared skirt, this gorgeous, sleeveless gown is perfect for an evening of dancing.  Although the title “Christmas Dress” might make you think it is only suitable for holiday wear, the gift includes a color-change HUD with 6 options, making it very versatile indeed.

What’s Included:

  • Appliers for Hourglass, Physique, Belleza, Maitreya,  and TMP
  • Mesh for Classic Avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Mesh
  • Color Change HUD with red, white, green, black, teal, and purple options

A Little Bling

It must have been my lucky day, because after the IM from Astrid, my hound with a nose for bargains led me over to Mandala Jewelry’s Marketplace store.  I was thrilled to notice the many S-A-L-E items.  I couldn’t help but dally over the 12 days of savings, 50% off, and 70% off specials.  Finally settling on antique gold, Tukemono double hoop earrings for only 37L (50% off… woot!  woot!) , I checked out, and crossed my fingers, hoping for a perfect match to the trim and bow on my beautiful dress.  Ta-da!  The shimmering baubles wonderfully accessorized my outfit, providing a touch of simple elegance.

Get it, Girl

My Day Just Kept Getting Better

While I was drooling over pondering the many bargains at Mandala Jewelry’s sale, a group notice popped up on my screen announcing a gift from Sentinus Design.  Gold-accented heels with an eye-popping 8 texture options.  Was I interested in the Casandra high heel shoes?  You bet!  Best of all, the group is completely free to join.  In the pose for my main photo, my shoes are completely concealed by the hemline of my gown, so I’ve included the close up photo to showcase the design of my newest footwear.  With softly polished leather, and gleaming golden chain accents, these beauties glammed up my feet in style.  I selected the teal version to complement my dress, but you also have 7 other texture options to choose from.  In addition to the Casandra heels, group members can also pick up 18 (no, that is not a typo) other free gifts.  Time for another happy dance!

If Only…

So, my loyal canine companion and I shared a wonderful New Year’s Eve together.  The only down side of the whole story is he didn’t bring me breakfast in bed the next morning.  Just deep brown, liquid chocolate eyes, and a cold, wet nose, demanding a walk in the frosty, pre-dawn air.  Maybe Love does have the right idea after all…  I wonder how hard it would be to train an old dog to whip up breakfast as a new trick?  Until next time, wonderful readers, happy shopping!
