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

Back Soon With More Cart Sale Fashions

Ripley and I spotted so many wonderful, budget-friendly Fabulous Finds at The Cart Wash Sale!  We’ll be back soon to share another with our favorite readers.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Dreaming of Infinity

Timeless

Hello Fabulouses!  Happy weekend to you!  Ripley and I found a sweet free mini dress to share with you today, and combined it with some budget-friendly accessories to create my look.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Covered With White Lace

The foundation for today’s outfit is the light and airy Lace Mini from AlmaMiranda.   The free, June gift for members of the AlmaMiranda group, this sexy little sleeveless number features a high collar and a creamy white hue.  It hugs all your curves and offers a tantalizing glimpse of skin.   If you are daring, you can just wear the dress alone.  It is a bit see-through, so I chose to don a lacey lingerie set underneath, and pulled on a cropped denim jacket to cover up.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Lace mini in XXS, XS, S, M, L
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

Infinity

The Finishing Touch

For my one piece of jewelry, I slipped on the Bento Infinity Ring from Misha Jesuil, which I discovered for the promotional price of only 10L on the Marketplace.  This simple, yet elegant thumb ring is designed only for Maitreya Bento hands and required no adjusting whatsoever.  I’m not sure how long this special price will last, so if you would like to scoop up this charming bauble for yourself, I’d recommend doing so soon.

I hope you find time for some rest, relaxation, and shopping therapy for yourself this weekend.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Feelin’ Like a Zombie

Zombie
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope the weekend is treating you well thus far. I spent the week doing the spring cleaning I’ve been avoiding. I’ve been cleaning up and clearing out just about every room in my house. It was exhausting, and I felt very much like a zombie by the end of the week. It’s nice to have all that clutter out of the house though.

This sporty outfit by Fiorella is just the type of thing I like to wear around the house, especially when there are chores to be done. It’s also perfect for a jog in the park, or a trip to the gym. The outfit is currently just 10 lindens on the Marketplace. Included in the package are several sizes, and and a texture change hud that lets you pick between 4 textures for the shorts, and 6 textures for the top, each with a different cute phrase.

Shirt/Shorts Sizes Included

  • Standard Mesh Sizes (xxs, xs, s, m, l)
  • Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)
  • Slink (Physique, Hourglass)
  • Maitreya Lara
  • TMP

Happy Birthday Slack Girl
As a bit of a reward for all the hard work I put in over the week, I indulged in a little pampering and got a manicure. These bento nails are a FREE group gift by Slack Girl in celebration of her real life birthday. You won’t want to miss out on these gorgeous stiletto nails. The gift includes mesh nails and a color change hud with a wide range of solid colors. The polish is intended to be matte, however there is a set in each size that will look glossy with higher graphics settings. These nails are intended for mesh hands only. The Slack Girl group is 100 linden to join at this time, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Sizes Included

  • Vista Bento Hands
  • Maitreya Lara Bento Hands
  • Tuty Bento Hands

Here are the details, Enjoy!

In a Field of Tiger Lilies

Tiger Lily

Happy Saturday, Fabulouses!  I found a fun, flirty, and free halter top to share with you today.  Featuring criss-crossed straps, a ruffled hem, and a warm, rusty-red tone with golden accents, this jewel is a free gift for members of the Third Life group from VN Creations.  The sequined trim adds just the right amount of sparkle while the cropped length will keep you cool on warm summer days.  It coordinated beautifully with a pair of dark jeans, but I think it would also go well with a maxi skirt or a pair of shorts, depending on your mood for the day.   The Third Life group has a 10L join fee, but there are many gifts for members scattered across the grid, so your one-time investment really pays off, even if all you get is this adorable summer top.

Mesh Sizes Included:

  • XS
  • S
  • M
  • L
  • XL
  • alpha layer

I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  Ripley and I will be sure to keep our eyes and ears open for more Fabulous Finds to share with you. Until my next post, happy shopping!

This Way to the Beach Life

Despite the stormy gray skies, Ripley and I decided to take a stroll through the beautifully landscaped Black Cat Orcadi Island sim, and found a lovely bed of poppies to act as a backdrop for my photo.    Now *this* is definitely the way to shake off those Monday blues!  Until next time, happy shopping, Fabulous Readers!

Walking on Sunshine

Walking on sunshine

Just a little bit out of practice.

Gotta admit, this holiday season has left me a little rusty when it comes to rooting out those bargains. For a while I had contemplated on training my new polar bear cub (he still needs a name) in the fine art of sniffing out great deals a la Ripley but after fifteen minutes of watching him attempt to dig out the carpet, the thought of turning him loose in a store became a Very Bad Idea. Thankfully, I soon remembered a safer alternative and was soon turning to the Second Life Marketplace. Personally, I’ve always found the Marketplace easy to navigate (no lag or misbehaving polar bears a bonus!) ending this most recent jaunt with a cart loaded with goodies.

Stepping into the sunshine.

One of the things picked up was this free sweater dress from Tuty’s. I guess I was in the mood for something simple as I immediately fell in love with the sleek cut of this dress. With the weather being so odd lately, I didn’t want to chance catching a flu and so appreciated this snug long-sleeved dress and it’s comfortable jersey material even more. The sweater dress comes with a boat load of sizes including the five standard mesh sizes (XS-XL) as well as alternate sizes for avvies with smaller chests or curvier bodies. If you’re still worried about the sizing there’s also a nifty alpha layer provided to stop bits from poking through. To sweeten the pot, the sweater dress also comes with a hud that allows you to switch between fourteen different colors. I spent way too long trying to decide on which color to showcase but settled on orange because it’s been too drab and dreary on my little plot of Second Life recently. Snow is all well and good but I think I’m well and truly ready for Spring and the sunshine.

Unusual headgear.

I’ve been in a bit of a headgear kick recently. Beanies and caps mostly as sunhats will have to wait (grrr) but in the virtual world, I would be remiss not to stretch this theme out to the more unusual. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen horns sold on the marketplace but when I saw these on offer at Ninety I snapped them up right away. For just 1L, you’ll not only get a great set of horns but also a hud that controls the colors of each flower on the ring of flowers at the base of each horn. There are eight colors to choose from so go crazy experimenting with all the different combinations that are possible. The flowers really remind me of Spring and I just can’t wait for the season to get here already! The hud provided also lets you control the color metals on the horns (choice of gold or silver) and there is also an easy to use resize script so that you can customize your horns to your heart’s content. And that’s a wrap for my Marketplace shopping adventures. The January work rush has certainly left me floored as it’s been busier than I’ve previously anticipated (-shakes a stick at RL-) but hopefully, I’ll be able to recover some of my freebie game soon. Catch you on the flip side guys!
