Guest Blog By Julianna Johnstone

A Guest Blog By Julianna Johnstone, originally blogged [HERE] at Fashion Clinic

I was looking through the blog right from the earliest entries and noted i used to have “Articles” not just a  fashion  agenda. So for my main posting today I thought i would see  how easy it is to create a totally free look.

I am already a member of the Fab Free group and recommend it  if you are not already it is a great group to join and its free. But I also joined the Silken Moon store group which has a joining fee of $L 50 as joining fees go not to bad. Although I have to say I will not be staying .  While the group corner has a number of nice items  most you have to pay for and to me that negates  the reason for paying a fee to joi. While I am sure they are worth the lindens if you are on  a tight budget  this is not helpful.

Here is the look I put together…………

Today I’m going to be showing you the fabulously FREE items from four of our FabFree Designer’s gift vendors at FabFree Headquarters.  The first FREE gift is from Banger Island Creations …it is a chic Sepia Days Belted Top & Leggings.  This mesh outfit comes with a HUD that gives you three different sepia color options for the top as well as for the leggings; so you can mix or match the two.
FabFree Headquarters FREE Gifts!
I’ve accessorized the tunic and leggings with our next FREE gift, CC Stingy Brim Fedora (Signature Gold), from Couture Chapeau.  I LOVE fedoras and when I saw this on, I knew I had to use it…it is unisex (scripted resizer) and the texturing is fantastic!

My shoes are the third FREE gift, Ultimate Damara White Wedges, from Baby Monkey.  These shoes are truly fabulous…they come with a HUD to match the skin and tons of nail polish options as well as options for the toe rings!

The Vintage Camera used in this shot is NOT free but is available for sale from !!Follow Us!! on the Marketplace.

The final FREE item I am showing today is the super comfy Brown Leather Accent Chair from Park Place Home Decor.  This chair has great animations and gives props…such as the cool cell phone I am holding in the photo.  The textures on this chair and ottoman are phenominal and the design fits into many eclectic home decor designs.

So Many Hearts!

Blogging soon!

Just a quick, 11th hour Valentine’s Day HELLO to you fabulous readers! I’m falling asleep at the keyboard, so I want to finish up before my head hits the keys, and you see a bunch of gibberish, LOL! Lots of great stuff here: my outfit is a special Valentine’s Day group gift from Paisley Daisy, but you only have until Saturday to pick it up. The bench, “Scrabble” game, and LOVE picture are all Marketplace cheapies from :: Follow US ::. My nerdy card is a gacha from Wimey, and my boxer bag (on the floor) is the Bag It! Pack It! Clutch It! Hunt gift from Earth’s. The stool is a group gift from [we're CLOSED]; there is also a dark version in the box. Oh, and my book is a subscriber gift from Frogstar (check history).

Blogging soon!

I’m always thrilled when designers give group gifts for redheads, and these gorgeous skins are the Valentine’s Day gift from Glam Affair. I love them both, especially the freckled ginger on the left. :-) My necklace and earrings (which are hiding in my hair) are on sale for 10L at Baby Monkey; 4 metal colors are included in a HUD. This pretty charm bracelet is a group gift from Hudson’s Clothing Co., and my sweet, deer ring is a group gift from Fabuleux. So much cuteness!

Valentine Nails

Be sure to stop by A:S:S to pick up these V-Day nails. There’s also a HUD to make your toes purty. :-)

Whew! No heads hit the keyboard in this post! ;-)

Sinful

Wicked Outfit Final

Always on the look-out for great finds, I found this outfit on the Marketplace. It’s a little bit gothic and a little bit flirty and I love it! I put some super fun polka-dotted pumps with it and a few accessories and I’m ready for a night out with my girls or a fun date night (just ignore the little bit of blood on my lips, they just needed a little color)! I know you want the details, so here we go, enjoy!

Lucky Me!

Did you know that Baby Monkey has lots of lucky chairs? Well, they do, and they’re not all just for members! When I visited there a few days ago, the letter “S” came up four times! I was shocked because “S” hardly ever comes up once, much less four times! Two of the gifts I received were these skinny jeans and snuggly, cropped sweater. Perfect for a cool, summer evening at the beach. :-)

Speaking of luck, I’ll admit that I’ve spent more than a little time and a few Lindens at The Arcade Gacha Fair. I know, I know; shame on me. But I can’t help myself! The items for this round are SO CUTE! My skin, hair, necklace, nails applier, and even my pose are all prizes from The Arcade. None are free, unfortunately, but everything is reasonably priced… unless you get carried away, like I did! Remember, YMMV (your mileage may vary); when you put your money in a gacha, there is no guarantee that you’ll get what you want, so play at your own risk, please. Oh, this sweet Blooms pose is a by aDORKable Poses, and comes with the flowers.

bm_lc_9_001f

Here’s a closer view of my skin, hair, nails, and necklace. My skin is Lulu by Glam Affair, and is a fabulous deal for only 100L (four brow colors are included). I love the lips and the subtle freckles. My hair is by Clawtooth, necklace by Maxi Gossamer, and nails applier (for Slink Avatar Enhanced Mesh Hands or nails) by Adore & Abhor. Honestly, I’ve been very happy with all the prizes I picked up at The Arcade, even though I didn’t always get exactly what I wanted. My house is so full of orchids that it looks like a greenhouse! :-D

If you go, have fun, and good luck!

Caprice

bm_may5_001f

I’m heading out for a night on the town in this sparkly Caprice dress, a group gift from Baby Monkey. The dress comes with a HUD, allowing you to select from 5 different color choices. The texture is very detailed, and my picture doesn’t really do it justice – you’ll have to go see for yourself! My pumps were featured in a FabFree Designer of the Day post a while back. They are also HUD-driven, and offer a choice of 20 different colors, all for only 10L. But hurry – I’ve heard that they won’t be out at this price for much longer. My jewelry is a current gift from Chop Zuey; the choker necklace and cuff bracelet are group gifts (350L to join), and the earrings are a gift for everyone, no group needed.

Afternoon Interrupted

baddog5f

Oh no! Gavin and I were spending a relaxing afternoon together, and now I walk in to find that Nessie has left me a little… present!  BAD NESSIE! Sigh… it has really been one of those days, so I guess this should be no surprise.

While I’m cleaning up, take a look at Gavin. He’s wearing the new Chris skin/shape/hair from REDGRAVE. Not free, but soooo handsome! His outfit, on the other hand, is free, and is the .:Mr. Hunter Hunt:. v.IV gift from Shadow Moon (0L). It includes the mesh shirt and vest, pants, and boots. There’s also a pair of sunglasses in the box, but instead he’s wearing these new Smoovies glasses from the Bitch/Bastard Store. For 1L, you get your choice of 4 different colored lenses. The frames also come in tortoise shell, if that’s more to your liking, and there are sizes for the ladies, as well (1L each).

As for me, I’m wearing a mesh outfit from {Liv-Glam} which is currently featured at Fi*Friday for only 55L. My shoes are one of the new group gifts at Baby Monkey (250L to join), and come in 9 different colors. I’m once again wearing the Classic Pearls jewelry from Lazuri, this time in completely different colors. Oh, and my skin is from [ROCKBERRY], and is currently featured as a free gift at FabFree Headquarters. Uma comes in 4 different skin tones.
