Hello there Fabulous Readers! Ripley and I are back in a special edition, mid-week post to share another Fabulous Find which we discovered on one of our SL journeys. Before I get into the details of my outfit, I’d like to begin with this sweet collection of poses from One Creations. A free gift for Fab Free group members, this four pack contains static poses perfect for snapping photos or just plain looking lovely! These worked fantastically with my Maitreya mesh body and were just right for capturing the perfect picture. To add the “Body Language” pack to your pose collection, all you need to do is join the Fab Free Group (and with ALL the lovely FREE gifts, group members have so many benefits!), then teleport over to One Creations and give the gift board a tap. To join the Fab Free Group, (free to join), copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL Viewer, and click the group join link – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .
After work tonight, while I was walking my fashion-seeking canine, he caught that oh-so-familiar scent of a bargain. As I followed my furry friend, I wondered what his nose was leading me toward, and I was pleasantly surprised when he sat himself down and stared up at this Plunge Neck Skater Dress from the Culco Boutique. The soft drape of the skirt and shimmering color of the fabric combine to create an alluring, feminine dress that is sure to please. I love the way the horizontal band in the center accentuates the waist. The gift contains appliers for mesh bodies as well as fitted mesh for classic avatars. Best of all, this dress is free to Teleport Hub Group members. There are lots of gifts available to Teleport Hub Group members, so the 10L joining fee really pays off in the long run.
After slipping Ripley a doggy snack, (I had to reward his hard work!), we headed over to The Free Dove to search for the perfect accessories. There, just inside the front entrance, I spied the Twisted Hoops earrings display from Earthstones, and Ripley wagged his tail in approval. Calleja Fairey first introduced Fab Free to these glittering earrings in her post here. The gold and pearl hues of these free baubles accentuate the shade of my frock. It’s hard to see the delicate texture of these earrings in my pictures, but trust me, they are gorgeous!
Next, I scoured my inventory, seeking a necklace to coordinate with my hoops. Out of 100,000+ items in my inventory (after 8 years in SL, things have gotten a little out of hand there), you would think I could find the perfect match, but alas, it was time for more shopping. Big grin!! From The Free Dove, we hiked over to Cae and tried our luck at the Whimsy gacha machine. For 75L, you can win a necklace or earrings in one of 10 shades of beads with a color-change HUD that allows you to choose from 3 metal types. Rip must be my lucky charm, because on my first try, the machine rewarded me with this charming Whimsy Necklace in Champagne. Before I got that glazed “gacha” look in my eye, Ripley gave a gentle tug on his leash and led me off to Luane’s World, one of his favorite SL locations, to romp and play. While he chased dragonflies at the water’s edge, I snapped these photos to share with you.
I hope the rest of your week goes well, and look forward to chatting with you again soon on Sunday. As always, happy shopping!
