Blue Monday

Blue Monday

Hey there, fabulous readers! I was so tired of snow that I packed a few bags, hopped in my car, and sped off to the first warm, sunny sim I could find. There are several really cute shops to browse through here, so I think I’ll be busy for a few days. 🙂

But First, The ‘Stuff

Before heading out on my little vacay, I picked up a few items on the All-‘stuff Hunt trail. Today I’m sharing the Womenstuff Hunt gift from Ghee: this beautiful Navy Rosa Dress.

The dress is sized for the following:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Fitmesh with an alpha layer for classic avatars

Now… if I could just find someone to help me with these bags…

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Complex

Why you have to be so complicated?

I hear that all the time. I just don’t understand why…..

Today’s look features two group gifts. I’m wearing the Rolled Shirt, one of the group gifts that can be found at Complex. This shirt is made for Gianni and Jake bodies, but looks just fine on my Adam body as well. The Complex group does have a 50L join fee, but I’ve received several gifts in this group so far.  My Festive Retro Dunks are the Holiday group gift at Vale Koer. This FREE group gift to members comes fitted in the following styles for men and women: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Gianni. Also included is a HUD switch between flat and ankle locked feet. The Vale Koer group is FREE to join.

Uberman…

With some subtle (and not so subtle) hints from my fellow bloggers, It was decided for me suggested I needed new hair. One of those being the tram G1207 male Hair featured at uber. While not free, I felt of all the hair purchases in the past week (4… FOUR… IKR?) This one looks the most Carson-y. (Thank you Brinlea for the tip.)

Bring on the New Year!

Bring on the New Year

Dear 2017;

I’ve got two words for you: good riddance.

I’m sorry if that sounds harsh, but as years go, you were pretty awful. Honestly, I don’t even think you tried to be good. You got off to a lousy start and then continued to go downhill as the months went on.

I won’t miss you, and I’m not sorry to see you go.

Don’t let the door hit your fanny on your way out. 😛

Onward and Upward

Now that I’ve got that off my chest… let me tell you about the clothes!

With so many amazing gifts in the Women Only Hunt 4, it’s hard to decide where to go first. And with the hunt ending on December 31st, you’ve only got ONE MORE DAY to decide. 😯

So let me help you: if you haven’t picked up this one yet, you want to grab it ASAP.

Hilly Haalan always offers such generous gifts, and this one is no exception. The Sara Trenchcoat Outfit includes following:

  • The trenchcoat, which comes in 2 versions: with and without the scarf. Sizes are for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies, with a fitmesh version for classic avatars.
  • The over-the-knee boots, which are sized for Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies. A standard mesh size is also included.
  • The sunglasses, which include 2 versions: 100% and 20% opaque (I’m wearing the 20%). Both are resizeable with a click.
  • The handbag (attached to the left hand). Texturing on this one is really nice, and it’s resizeable with a click. I love handbags so much, in RL as well as SL, and outfits that include them make my day! ❤

As an accessory, I’ve added the Jingle Cuff bracelet from the Chop Zuey Couture Advent calendar. You’ll find them as the day #12 gift on the group Advent board (there are several gifts for non-members, too!).

Here’s hoping that 2018 is a vast improvement over 2017, and is full of peace, joy, good health, and success for us all! 😀

Not Ready To Let Go Of My Holiday Knits

JustBecauseNCore
Christmas may be over for the year, but I am not ready to put away all of my holiday knits yet, especially those that were gifts for Christmas!  In real life, I’m still wearing my Christmas gifts… especially my new fuzzy Christmas bear pom pom socks that were in my stocking and in Second Life I am wearing some snazzy knit gifts too!

Snazzy Christmas Knit gift by Just Because

Just Because put out a lovely and free group gift for their inworld members (free to join!!).  The Vora Christmas Sweater with the adorable reindeer print is available in the sizes listed below on the wall behind the reception desk  to the right along with several other beautiful previous group gifts.  Most of those gifts have been shown on FabFree – HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE!  This cute cropped sweater also comes with a HUD that allows you to select which colour metal buttons you’d like.

  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Snazzy Christmas Knit gift by N-Core

With  current group join fee of 299L, N-Core has THREE amazing new group gifts up for the holidays!  One of which is the Jane Christmas socks and buckled platform heels set that you can wear together or as separates. Included are a few texture change options as shown below in their vendor ad.  If these aren’t reason enough for you to join, and I am not sure why they wouldn’t be – because they are so cute…  just wait till you see the other two gifts which I will be wearing in future posts soon.

Addicted To Siss Boom

SissBoomRose60L I have a problem…

I can’t walk through the events wall at Siss Boom without buying something!  What can I say?  Her soft, feminine fashion style just calls to me.  Today I picked up the Persuasion Dress in Rose as shown my avatar.  For a limited time it is just 60L, and well worth every little penny!  A Maitreya Lara size was not included, but the Slink Physique worked on me :).  Try a demo!

Sizes Included:

  • XXS-L Fitmesh + Alpha layer
  • Slink Physique

You’ll find this dress, and several other items on sale this week at the main entrance on the events wall.

btw…  My frosty breath is not an after photo edit.   The Mill sim, where I took my photo today –  auto sends it out when you land as a free gift!  It even breathes.  How fun is that?

The Softer Side of Wednesday

Evani
Happy Halloween Fabulouses!

Normally Wednesdays child is full of woe, and this is how the dark natured little Addams girl got her famous name, but I decided to soften her up for Halloween a little bit by lightening up her locks, wearing her basic collared dress, but in a shorter, sweet little floral print.   I then subbed out the dismal black stockings and flat maryjanes for some plum frilled ankle socks and strapped heels!  I think…  she might even be cracking a little smile, or is she just plotting something again?!

Trick or Treat at EVANI!

What inspired my look today was the floral dress!  This is actually set out as a free Halloween gift at EVANI – simply priced at 0L!   The really great thing about this Halloween gift is that it could be worn any time of the year ;).

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Isis

Have fun today everyone, enjoy that candy (totally craving a caramel apple, myself!) and stay safe!

What Does’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

Makes You Stronger

Happy weekend, fabulous readers — I hope you all are having a wonderful, relaxing summer! I’m still around and so happy to be back on the blog! I spent most of July sick in bed with a nasty respiratory infection, but I’m much better now (I hope) and glad to be back on my feet. With Carson sick too, this sure hasn’t been a good summer for the health of Fab Free bloggers! :/

I’ve got a couple of things to show you today, starting with this sexy dress from I. M. Collection. Annette comes in Fitmesh sizes S-L, as well as for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. This one is a group gift, but if blue is not your color, there are some lovely versions in pink and gray for just 100L.

Makes You Stronger

Izzie’s put out these gorgeous eye appliers for the July VIP group gift. They come in 9 different colors and include mesh eyes with a HUD, as well as appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega eyes.

I should point out that my nails are also a group gift from Hello Dave. 6 colors are included, with appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega hands.

One more thing: Fri.day is having a Summer Flash Sale this weekend until August 6th at 11 p.m. SLT, and lots of sandals will be on sale for just 50L! Not the ones I’m wearing here, unfortunately, but if you like them, you can pick them up at the current round of Uber. 🙂

Do You Believe in Magic?

Do You Believe in Magic?

Happy Wednesday, Fabulous Readers! Today, Ripley and I bring your our final find from The Cart Wash Sale.  You’ll find my lovely White Magic frock at the Baci Shop.  I know, I know, you’re probably thinking “Time to get your eyes checked, Kat – that dress is NOT white!”  I felt like being the Lady in Red today, so I used the texture change HUD, which is tucked inside the package, to alter the hue of my dress to this deep crimson.  If red is not your color, you have 8 other options available to you, including white.  Featuring side cut outs, fastened with buckle straps, and a generously flared skirt, this summer dress will keep you pleasantly cool on the hottest afternoon.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Mesh for classic avatars in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP

I hope the rest of your week goes smoothly for you.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
