Fuchsia Dreams

Swinging My Cares Away
Hello Fabulouses!  When I saw that Love and Aline had picked up some wonderful outfits at the Cart Wash, Ripley and I just had to teleport there and mosey around.  I’m so glad we did!  I scooped up my top, jeans and boots over at the Brandy’s Boutique display for just 10L, and also indulged in a new manicure from the Defiant Unicorn cart for 10L.

Flirty Fucshia

With a romantic top, snug fitting blue jeans, and sexy, thigh-high boots, the Innocent Lace Fuchsia outfit is sure to please!  A cheery ribbon adds a bright pop of color, and grommets along the hemline and neckline provide visual interest.  I like the way the top portion of the fabric is solid, but the bottom is fashioned from translucent lace.  Medium blue denim pants and over-the-knee, curve-hugging boots keep your legs toasty warm.  If the bright pink of the bow is not your style, you can find gold or green bow versions at the Brandy’s Boutique display, all for only 10 little Linden dollars.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Polish It Up

For just the right finishing touch, I slicked on Val’s Polish from Defiant Unicorn.  The glossy red and pink shades in the applier HUD are just perfect for the upcoming holiday.  They were super easy to apply to my Maitreya mesh body, and provide an easy way to add glam to your look for just 10L.  You can get a better view of this pretty polish in my close up shot below:

Full of Thought

If you haven’t been to the Wash to check out the Cart Sale, I’d highly recommend a visit.  There are so many wonderful, budget-friendly Fabulous Finds just awaiting discovery!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

“Adda” Boy, You Found My Heart!

Posies

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are popping in quickly tonight to share a budget-friendly hunt gift with you.  Le’La Design is hosting a Valentine’s Day Hunt that runs until February 28th.  Scattered throughout the store are small red hearts, which are priced at just 5L each.  I dusted off the pupster’s tracking harness, and sure enough, his talented nose didn’t let me down!  Almost before I knew it, I was unboxing the bounty.  My crimson frock is one of the ten hunt prizes concealed in the shop.  The Adda Dress features an asymmetrical hemline and a one shoulder bodice style (with my hair style you can’t really see my bare right shoulder) that is really quite fun.  A wide, sequined sash emphasizes your waistline, and the skirt is generously cut for freedom of movement.  Overall, it’s a really pretty, feminine style dress that will become a warm weather favorite of mine.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Venus
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Put on Your Red Dress, Baby!

Put on Your Red Dress, Baby

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I know mine was too short…lol.   We finally had some warmer weather here, and I was outside enjoying it in RL, so I was inspired to go for a stroll with Ripley in a field of wildflowers in Second Life.

When in Doubt, Wear Red

The arrival of more spring-like temperatures (even if short lived) also had me thinking of donning a sleeveless dress.  Lucky for me, Cremosas Store has this crimson little mini set out as a free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  With a low cut neckline and slender fit, this frock had me ready for a night on the town.  All I needed to do was apply some red lipstick, add a simple necklace, and slip into some slinky heels.  The simple design, smooth texture of the fabric, and deep hue showcased my curves.  With versions for mesh bodies as well as classic avatars, I’m sure you will find just the right fit for your avatar.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Fine
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Three Stripes

Keep Calm and Polish On

For just the perfect finishing touch, I picked up another free gift just for members of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  The Three Stripe Nails from Inevitable Madness echoed the vivid hue of my frock.  I really liked how the designer created two accent nails with this black and red pattern and painted the rest jet black.  This touch added visual interest to my manicure.  The contrast of ebony and crimson makes such a vibrant combination.  The free gift package includes appliers for Maitreya as well as Omega.

I hope your work week is off to a smooth start tomorrow.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Skate Like Nobody’s Watching

Poised

Hello Fabulous Readers, and Happy Monday!  After Ripley and I left the La Vie sim yesterday, we decided to try our luck on the Peace On Earth Hunt, and made our way over to the OMG! Inc. store.  There, the pupster’s talented nose discovered the hidden snowflake which contained the free Skater Dress I’m wearing in my picture.  This fun and flirty outfit inspired a trip to an ice covered pond at Moonchuck Winter Wonderland for a late afternoon glide across the frozen water.  With sizes for classic as well as popular mesh avatars, you’re sure to find a fit for you!  The prize package includes a texture change HUD with 5 options to choose from.  I love the way the knotted top offers a sexy peek at my mid section.  With the generously flared skirt, your avatar will have plenty of freedom for your finest figure skating moves!  Best of all, you can pick up a copy for yourself for just a small investment of time.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars

Bright Northern Light

Winter's Light

Hello there Fabulouses!  As Ripley and I explored the La Vie sim, we met two sweet new Saint Bernard friends.  As you can see, Gus carries a rescue kit around his neck, so he and Gloria are prepared at any moment to join an SL Search and Rescue team when their services are required.  On this bright and sunny Sunday, it didn’t look like that would be necessary, so they posed with me for a photo op.  Aren’t they just adorable?

Ready to Be Santa’s Helper

My entire outfit today, from my antlers to the tip of my toes is composed of free gifts from *Coco* Designs.  As soon as I saw the Reindeer Headdress, I couldn’t wait to try it on.  What a fun way to get into the holiday spirit!  My over-sized knit sweater features a cozy turtle neck and long, generous sleeves.  I liked how it tucked into the front waistband of my cheery leggings.  With a red and white Nordic-style pattern, these pants coordinated beautifully with my crimson top and slouchy socks.  Through Linden magic, I was able to traipse around all day in just my stockings, and my feet never felt a smidgen of melted snow … pretty amazing, am I right? 😉  To scoop up this look for yourself, simply head on over to the shop, activate the *Coco* Update Group tag (it’s completely free to join) and tap the vendors.  Easy peasy!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink
  • Maitreya

As soon as I pop our wish lists in the mailbox for Old Saint Nick, the pupster and I will bid farewell to our new pals, and continue exploring this lovely sim.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Sweet Dreams

Sweet Dreams

Happy Saturday, Fabulous Readers!  Ripley, his pals and I are all waiting (a bit impatiently) for this bakery to open.  While we were out walking on the Oh Deer sim, we spied these tasty treats through the display window.  After a long, hard week at work, a girl and her pup deserve a sweet treat, don’t you think? 😉

Dear Santa…

The pup and I had built up an appetite as we made our along the Dear Santa Hunt trail.  It was well worth it because I scooped up this Ruffled Crop Top and Mini Skirt from Magnolia Designs for just one Linden dollar.  The lace trim along the edge adds the prettiest feminine touch, and I love the cheerful red and white print!  A pair of cute Mary Jane heels with knee high white stockings, complete with a bow and jingle bell are also tucked in the box, but are not showing in this shot.  The Dear Santa Hunt features two hunt prims at each store – one costs 25L and the other 1L, so if you are short on time, you can just pay the 25L fee and pick up the outfit immediately.  If you’re like me, and you are saving your Linden dollars for holiday gifts (yes, pal, that includes Ripley Snacks), you can invest some time and locate the 1L prim.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Houglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

I Hear Keys Jingling!

Yay!  Here comes the baker now…….  After we gobble down some goodies err…pick up some delicious bakery items, Ripley and I will head out to locate another Fabulous Find to share with you.  Until my next post, happy hunting!
