Romancing Wertina

Little Red Flowers
Oh Hello! I’ve missed you Fab Free! After a much needed vacation, I’m back and happy to be here. Today I picked up the Fifty Linden Friday offer from Clawtooth and had the opportunity to pick up a few items at Wertina before they close their doors forever. Saving the closing sale for last, this whispy hairstyle from Clawtooth is a FLF must have! The hairstyle comes with an Essentials pack with a wide range of natural hair colors. It also includes a separate color change hud for the flower headband. You can get your copy of this lovely hairstyle for just 50 lindens today only, at Clawtooth.
Winter Romance
It’s always a little bittersweet when a shop leaves Second Life. I just yesterday found out that Wertina will be closing soon. Unfortunately I do not know when the actual closing date is. In the  mean time however, everything at the shop is marked down considerably. I did a bit of shopping yesterday evening and most of what I saw was priced between 10 and 35 lindens. I picked up a small handful of items, including this sweet floral nightgown. This little mesh dress is just 5 lindens and comes in standard mesh sizes. There are a few colors to pick from as well. At Wertina you’ll find women’s fashion with everything from jackets and shoes to dresses. Needless to say, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to grab some great bargains.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Gaps in the wardrobe.

Gaps? But Sheidey what are you talking about? Some Second Life inventories are possibly related to literal black holes! In all seriousness, though I took a good long look at the theoretical mass (and mess!) that is my inventory and realized that I didn’t have very many options when it came to pants. Needing a quick fix and seeing as throwing away my dresses and skirts were out of the question, I decided to hit some sales. In my previous post {HERE} I mentioned a store called Wertina and not only do they sell some great shoes, but they also have a good variety of clothing items in stock as well. Pictured is the Biker pants in black that are simply a study in fitted leather and look great at any angle. The leather studs that go down on either side of the pants are a great feature just like the distressed leather detailing around the knees. The Biker pants come in five standard mesh sizes (XS-L) with an alpha layer included and cost just 15L because of the closing down sale that Wertina is holding. Pop down to the store to browse! With everything marked down to 5L-35L, you might just find something to fill up the gaps in your wardrobe too.  The closing sale at Wertina ends on the 31st of December.

More metallic goodness!

Now that I have a perfect pair of pants, I was determined to find some fitting footwear for it. Luckily enough Enertia is offering up the Kehlani heels as a free group gift and the metallic sheen to the straps and body of these shoes was exactly what I was looking for. Personally, I feel that the edgy style of these heels paired off nicely with the outfit, but if metallics aren’t your cup of tea there’s also a Hud included in the gift package with five other color options. What’s more, you’ll be getting sizing for Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet as well. Add the Kehalni heels into your shoe collection today by joining the Toxxic Designs Studios group for free.

It’s a hair affair!

Hairology has been a hot topic here with the ladies of FabFree and rightly so as the 1st Anniversary of the event is filled with awesome goodies from top quality designers. I found the final touch to my outfit there in the form of a dollarbie hair gift from Vanity Hair. Buns have such a bad rep for being uptight but this beautifully textured updo is simply elegant. Natural colors isn’t something that I’d usually go for when hairstyles are concerned but this gift and it’s Hud that contains four rich tones to choose from certainly inspired me to give the ‘naturals’ a chance. While there is no alpha layer provided, there’s a nifty resizer in the hud which makes fitting hassle free and the hairdo itself has copy permissions enabled so that you can make duplicates for backup. This round of Hairology closes at the end of the month so don’t miss out!

For more coverage on the gifts at Hairology check out these posts:

 In plain sight.

While slapping the Midnight Mania boards at WoW Skins the other day I ran into (literally, thanks lag) this free gift in the games room. This very generous gift contains the classic Soraya skin in the tan tone with both cleavage/no cleavage options as well as appliers for Phat Azz, Slink Hands and Feet, Ghetto Booty and Lolas Tango. You’ll also receive a brow base and shape but my favorite aspect of this skin aside from the fact that it’s totally free are the two freckles tattoo layer that comes included in the package as well. My very first skin in SL was freckled as well so it was good to come back to the look after a while away.

Speaking of going back to old looks, I’ve gone back to blue-grey eyes as well after experimenting with different colored peepers. The aptly named Athena eyes are a free gift from Mesange and not only will you be receiving system eyes but mesh ones as well with Genesis and Omega Huds. I feel wiser already for snapping up this gift and maybe I’ll be sticking to this pair for a while.

And that’s a wrap. I’d like to wish a happy and safe Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it. Have fun out there dear readers. Till next time!

Into the wide blue yonder

Into the wide blue yonder

Another Saturday rolls around again!

Hello, dear readers and welcome to another Saturday Edition. This week’s post is coming to you just a little late this week and for that, I apologize.  Got to empathize with Love as I too am feeling under the weather as of late but I’m battling through the grogginess to bring to you the latest Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Snowpaws. You can have a quick look at all the goodies donated by our Fabulous Designers here and as always, to join the group just copy and paste the following link into local chat in your Sl viewer secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about and click on it. The group is free to join.

Something blue to combat the blues.

The first time I saw the ad for the Paige dress it really brought a smile to my face. While there are those who claim that mesh clothing can sometimes look flat, this simple strappy number is anything but. The beautiful flowing lines of the skirt add an air of casual elegance to the Paige dress and if you’re looking to experiment with simple color blocking then this is the outfit for you. The underskirt is a lighter blue than the rest of the dress’ deeper shade and adds to its uniqueness without being overpowering. The Paige dress comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and you’ll also be receiving a great alpha layer to stop any bits from sticking out. All you need to do to add the Paige dress to your virtual wardrobe is to wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, click on the board and the dress is yours for free. After you’re done, take a look at the games room at Snowpaws as there are tons of Midnight Mania boards, Mini Manias, Lucky Letters for you to participate in plus freebies! For a visual, take a look at Love’s post {HERE} on Fab Designer Snowpaws.

Get lured.

If you haven’t stopped by the latest round of The Gacha Garden, now would be a good time to do a little exploring. I was enchanted by both the whimsical build and the awesome and varied gacha machines that are there to be played. Best yet some merchants have put out free gifts to lure you down the path and deeper into the garden. One of these gifts is the Slim Chance hair by Analog Dog. I’m in love with the messy up-do and wild effortless curls. You will also receive an extensive Hud in the gift package that will enable you to choose from different fantasy tones as well as the ombre fades and tints. To get the Slim Chance hairstyle and other free gifts at The Gacha Garden simply join the Gimme Gacha group (free group join) and wear your tag proudly as you explore the event. This round of The Gacha Garden ends on the 30th of this month.

To say goodbye.

It’s always a little sad when I discover stores that are just about to close. Maybe I’m just being silly but I always get a sense that I’m a little late to the party (lol). Wertina is one such store and their clothing items and shoes are priced between 5-35L. I picked up these cute Keira heels (only for Slink High feet) for just 10L and the shoe addict in me is just itching to get more. Drop by Wertina before the 31st of December as that’s when their doors will close.

Into the wide blue yonder

Make me over.

I’ve never really explored with makeup layers before but when I saw that Alaskametro was having a 50% off sale for their pre-fall cosmetics line, I thought it’d be a good time to start. I learned about this merchant through the FabFree website months ago and now that I’ve finally gotten around to trying their makeup, I’m really glad that I did. There were so many choices of eyeshadows and lipsticks/glosses that I didn’t know where to start but luckily there were wearable testers provided to guide me in my purchases. In the end, I finally settled on the Creme Duo eyeshadow and Matte Dark lipstick respectively. Each pack has six different color variations as well as appliers for TMP, Slink Visage, Lelutka, Omega, and Loudmouth. With the popularity of mesh heads in the market, I’m glad that there’s a merchant that includes tattoo layers as well for classic avatars. The sale at Alaskametro is ending at the end of November.

And that’s a wrap! Stay safe and healthy this weekend fabulous readers!

In addition there is an optional attachment that gives the hair it’s wayward strands. This FREE gift is available to all Little Bones group members, just wear your tag.

Fab-Freeing At The Four Seasons Market!

16939857981_e36a9381eb_cGood evening Fabulouses! I took a trip down to The Four Seasons Market this morning and found that the event is packed with very affordable springy goodness!  In fact, even if you are on a freebie budget there are items for you too!  Many of the designers participating in this event are offering free gifts or dollarbies so make sure you check out each stand.  I didn’t have time to put together a post with ALL of the plentiful gifts, but I picked three that I thought might entice you to head down there and have a look see!

I love wearing casual boho type styles both in RL in SL, and Wertina didn’t let me down!   You can find this super cute Indian T-Shirt in Grass Green, priced at 0L at their Four Seasons Market display.

At the Jinx display you will find a free gift that we don’t often see, and I personally thought was really cool.  What it is, is a butterfly & glitter emitter that poofs out lots of purple butterflies and glitter as your hands do that whole geeky typing animation thing while you are typing in local chat.  You’ll probably find yourself “blablablaing” when you have nothing to say, just so you can see the magic!

Below you will see the NiNight Creations Spring Bench which is also a free item that you can pick up at The Four Seasons Market.  This piece is massive, and includes the wood vines, rocks, grass, birds and flying  butterflies.  The bench itself has huge couples cuddle menu and 11 single sits.  All of this together is 39 prims.

Dancing Barefoot in leaves…with sandals.

I told you I would be back! This time I have a few group gifts, and a hunt gift to show you, so freebie lovers, rejoice! I know, that is every single one of you lovely readers, really though, who doesn’t love a good freebie?

bohodancing1

I’m starting out with this really cute Boho Blouse from B!ASTA. The [ B! ] :DANCING BAREFOOT: Boho blouse, comes with a texture change hud, and allows you to change the colour of your top, with 7 different choices. It is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes. It is part of the “Travel with the Gypsies” hunt, which started Sept. 7th, and runs until Sept. 30th, and all gifts for this hunt are free. So you are going to have to do a little hunting in store to find it, but here’s a hint to help : “You better check if you got a hole in your pocket – I guess you have lost that coin there, while we were drinking our hot chocolate?”

bohodancing2

To go with my lovely shirt, I found these ‘not so boho’ skinny jeans as a group gift from Wertina. Who says you can’t mix styles? LOL. These lovely, green jeans are mesh, with the standard sizes all included. There are several other group gifts for you to grab while there as well, including the poppy dress,originally shown by Love HERE. The group is free to join, and all the group gifts are free. I may even be back to show you another gift tomorrow 😉

bohodancing4

To top my look off, I needed some fun, bright coloured earrings. Luckily, [free bird] had me covered. Like Wertina, [free bird] keeps many of their previous group gifts out for everyone. One of these past gifts, are the lovely Splash of Color Earrings. With so many colours on them, they will go with practically any outfit you put together. The group is free to join, and the gifts are free, so make sure you grab all the other wonderful gifts while you are there for these earrings.

bohodancing3

Whew…I do believe that I am totally done for the day now. My Saturday was unusually busy, and my bed is calling my name, very loudly. So, I hope you all have a great night, and I will most definitely be back tomorrow. Until then, you know the drill…TTFN *waves*

Sail Away With Me To Another World

Its the end to another week and the weekend is on the horizon. How are you going to spend the next couple of days? Im hoping to go down to the beach for a little wander along the shores and maybe even to dip a toe or two into the water!

If you are doing something special this weekend, then maybe these three looks will help take you through the day into night!

The first is the Salmon Macreme Dress which is a Group Gift by Graffitiwear. This is partial mesh, meaning that the main body of the dress is system layers but the skirt is mesh. It also comes with an applier HUD which includes appliers for WowMeh, Phat Azz, Lola, Ghetto Booty and Brazilia. The group is free to join!

Next, if you are looking for something bright and bold then the group gift dress by Dew could be just what you are after. The zesty colours certainly make a statement in the summer sun and the side slit gives it an extra sexy little edge. Again the group is free to join!

Finally, I couldnt resist showing you this adorable crop top and high waisted skirt from Wertina as I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it when visiting the Cosmopolitan Sales Room. Its not free but both pieces are for sale for a discounted price which makes it tempting to add to your summer collection!

All of the shoes in this post can also be found at the Cosmopolitan Sales Room and they are fast becoming my new favourites! They are made by VG Shoes and are available in a few other colour options besides the ones I am showing here.

Hiya Fabulouses!  I found a great skin sale that I thought you might like to check out 🙂  [ WERTINA ] has several skins upstairs priced at …  get this…  25L!  The Harper Cream 7 skin I am wearing today in this post is just one of them.  I have no idea how long the sale is on for, so check them out ASAP!  On your way up the stairs, make sure you check out the group gift table too.  The Sequin Gold Top shown above is one of the gifts available, and the [ WERTINA ]  group is free to join!

Those ruby red lips on the Harper skin inspired me to pull out the AMITOMO Vintage Camera I had picked up in a gacha machine at this round of Kustom9.  It makes such a fun fashionable accessory, and each play was just 69L.
