Some days all I want to do is sit at home in my favorite band shirt and listen to records with my cat. Finn, that’s my cat, even seems to enjoy when I occasionally sing along! Inevitably when the topic of music comes up, people ask “Who’s your favorite artist?” or “What band do you like best?”. Those questions are impossible for me to answer. I don’t have a favorite, I like them all, some more than others obviously, but even that changes with my mood. Certain genres have a special place in my heart because they are the proverbial soundtrack to my angst-riddled teen years. Mostly, music just speaks to me on so many levels. I can’t imagine life without it.

So, when I came across this sweet little t-shirt showing Yoko and John Lennon on the Marketplace, I had to have it! It isn’t mesh, and it doesn’t come with any appliers, but it’s a cute shirt and perfect for a casual outfit. While browsing through the Marketplace, I also came across this sightly off-the-shoulder cardigan. It’s got a kinda grungy feel to it, and hey, the ’90s are my decade, those were my teen years, so heck yes!! I know, grunge is not always the best fashion forward statement, but every now and then I just have to indulge in a little fashion nostalgia. Band shirt, check, funky sweater, check, now my look could not be complete without some printed tights to go under my denim shorts! Once again, the Marketplace held the answer. These super cute tights are by [BE]lieve, and just inexpensive enough that I couldn’t have been happier with them. I’ll admit, I struggled with not wearing combat boots, or even more grunge, yellow work-boots. Anyone else recall when those were popular, even for girls?! hahaha Still, I refrained from the boots and went with these funky cool wedge shoes with little wing accents. Last but not least, I am completely in love with one of the latest manicure/pedicure sets from Nail Me! For a limited time these uber cute and pretty nail appliers called “Faery Wings” are on sale for $50 lindens. They are fun and colorful, and if you’re like me, you’ll wear them with everything! I’m not altogether certain my outfit matches, but what I do know is that I love it! It reminds me of a fun time in my own life. I would have worn this as a teenager, and if I thought for a minute I could pull it off, I might wear it still! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

*Also, just a little tip, HollyHood is having a 50% of sale that ends August 3oth! So if there is a pair of shoes you’ve been wanting, now is the time to get them! Or, if you’re just a shoe addict like I am, it’s a good time to feed the addiction! :D

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Pink .. It Was Love At First Sight

Hooray for another weekend! Todays post is another lesson in pinkology.. Are you ready? Then we shall begin!

Love gave me a great tip about this gorgeous hair by Cheveux. It is free as their 2000 member group gift! It comes with a HUD that allows you to swap the colours of the bows in the hair or make them disappear if you want to have it without. The free group gift is Pink but you can purchase other colours in the store if you want something different! My gorgeous gown is the VIP April Floral Corset Skirt by Junbug and I was surprised to find that it hadn’t been blogged on FabFree yet! Of course I was delighted too as it suited my pink theme perfectly! The Junbug group has a L$200 join fee but there are a couple of other gifts you can pick up too!

If you are looking for some really adorable jewelry then be sure to check out the Sweet Thing gacha machine at The Gacha Mania event. My necklace, earrings and bracelet are all from there and they are so so cute I am sure you will fall in love with them too.

Its a little hard to capture but I am wearing some animated body glitter by DeeTaleZ that you can find as a dollarbie on the counter near where you land. It really is quite adorable and comes with layers for your lips, eyes, cheeks, chest and tummy! Yay for sparkling! My Chevron painted nails are a limited free offer by La Boheme until 24th August so be sure to stop by to pick them up before then! It comes in two sets, one with silver detailing and one with gold!

Tuesdays with The Warrior Queen

Warrior Queen 1

Considering the time of day, I am going to make this post short and sweet in hopes of giving all the Fab Free readers as much time as I can to pick up these fantastic items. Today is Tuesday, and one thing I enjoy about Tuesdays is $25 Linden Tuesdays! As I generally do, I went through and checked out each of the participating shops, and really found some exciting fantasy and gorean themed items. I’m calling this look “The Warrior Queen”. The horns and headdres are from Sublime Shroud Kreations, and there are several colors to choose from, I think the details are stunning on this piece! The circlet is from Keystone. It includes various colors, as well as a silver version for lots of options, making this a really gorgeous versatile piece. The face-paint is a gacha item at Bite & Claw, there are several options, but I genuinely like this one the most. I like the sort of feral feel it gives to the overall look. Next I picked up this full outfit from Luas, it too is available in multiple color options. Wanting to give this Warrior Queen a little regal flair to her attire, I added the corset from Roawenwood, which also includes a color change HUD. I think it really completes the look and makes for a gorgeous fantasy inspired ensemble. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

I Hear Her Heart Beating Loud As Thunder

The Fantasy Gacha Carnival started about a week ago and it runs until 8th September. If you love Pirates, Vikings and the East then you will be all over this Gacha extravaganza just like I have been. You can see more of the items by visiting Love’s Mermaid post here and also Pru’s Pirate Adventure here! I am here today to show you some of the Eastern themed items you can win from a few of the Gachas there!

There really are some breathtaking designs on offer at this round of the The Fantasy Gacha Carnival and one of my favourite items as been the Sakura Shibari Dress by DeviousMind that comes with a set of Neo Geisha accessories that you can play for in a seperate Gacha. This dress is just so super sexy! It is fitted mesh so will need very minimal adjustment. I added the Sadhana Fans and Upper Arm bracelets that are by Aisling and the look is complete!

I really fell in love with the shape of the Princess of the East Dress by Murdock and I love the one sleeve detailing that makes it quite unusual. It comes with a floral attachment that covers the sleeve, but I decided to go without. I was very lucky to win the rare versions of both the Somilia Head Jewel by Pekka and the Lian Collar by A Masters Eye, especially as I really really wanted both! You will be seeing me wear the Head Jewel quite often in other posts to come I am sure! The detailing on both items is exquisite and whats great is they both have colour changing HUDs! Hooray! The Sadhana Bracers are another of the prizes you can find in the Aisling Gacha and they really are quite stunning!

Finally my last look shows the Oriental Desire Hair Decor and the purple version of the Oriental Desire dress by KioKio. The Hair Decor is just gorgeous and would be suitable to wear with many different styles and it is also fully colour changable. The Oriental Desire dress is quite cheeky.. and I mean it quite literally! If you are a little shy about showing your bum off then this might not be the dress for you ~laughs~ but it is absolutely gorgeous and a lot of fun to wear!

Junbug – ing On A Fifty Linden Friday

Snapshot_008Oh!  How I love Friday!!  Friday means Fifty Linden Friday stops for me, first thing in the morning.  Mostly I run from shop to shop down the list while I am multi-tasking putting on my face in the morning getting ready for work or skipping  breakfast or something lol.  FLF is worth one side of my face being un-mascaraed or those 10 AM hungry tummy growls.

This morning I picked up the FLF items at Glam Affair and Junbug and boy am I glad I did!  Junbug has two of their Ophelia Dresses out in Floral and Polka, priced at 50L each.  Above I am wearing Floral, and below the Polka.
Snapshot_001For this week’s Fifty Linden Friday offer, Glam Affair has out their Cocktail Girls Duo including the Kallista and Oakley Skins in the Asia skintone.  You get both skins for one price of 50L and there are several eyebrow options included.  What a deal!  Don’t forget the FLF items are only available for one day only!!

The Janice Jewelry Set is a free group gift at Virtual Impressions and looks lovely both with formal and less formal attire.  This set comes with the necklace and matching earrings (which are a little hard to see in my pictures – sorry!).  This group is free to join, and while you are there make sure you grab the freebie box by the stairs too!

Under The Solaria Sun

Snapshot_003Hello Fabulous readers :)  This week I watched one of my favourite movies, “Under The Tuscan Sun” which I have seen a bazillion times, and was inspired to revisit Solaria inworld, which is  a beautiful, authentic Italian themed sim.   There was plenty of Italian chatter going on in local (which I didn’t understand of course, but it sounded lovely all the same), and even a handsome Italian man playing his guitar and singing.   It was “almost” like I was right there in Italy… for a few minutes anyways, until I was ever so rudely yanked back into the reality of RL where the laundry machine was buzzing at me to start folding. MEH.. But…  before I logged off, I managed to snap a few photos of the outfit I am wearing today because I thought you might be interested in hearing about the great gacha deals and freebies I put together.

The classy white 9-5 Dress is made by Sassy! and is available at the Greek Isle Gacha for 50L per play.  There are several colours to play for, but I was inspired to wear the white ;).  Those of you who saw the movie or read the book may remember the reference.

My Damselfly Sunhild hair can be found at The Fantasy Gacha, priced at 75L per play.  I think you could roleplay this versatile style up or wear it with a classy dress too.  There is also a pretty cool mens hair to play for too that is very much like Kahl Drogo’s (rawr) from GOT!
Snapshot_005Are you eyeing up those hot shoes, wondering how much they are going to break your bank?  Well…  If you happened to listen to me when I was telling everyone to join the Essenz inworld group when it was free to join and they would soon have VIP gifts [HERE], you can now find the Slink High Feet Add-on Denver Shoes in White in the past notices for a limited time.  If you aren’t already a member, you’ll need to pay the 350L join fee.
Snapshot_004More “fab” news to share with you is that in the notices of the MOCK Cosmetics inworld group (250L to join), there are a ton of Innocente Lipcolors as gifts!  I have shown five below, but there are a ton of colours!!  This is a very generous group, very often offering plenty of group gifts – well worth the join fee!

Priestess for a day….

I love the Egyptian culture, especially their history. If any of you have ever perved my profile in SL, you will even see that in RL, I have a tattoo of my own Egyptian cartouche, which happens to be of my name.  That tattoo also has a cat in it, another of my loves. So I was super excited to show you all this post today, as it contains both of these :)

Sekhmet1

The Tales of Fantasy event just opened up this weekend, and I decided to head over and take a look. The moment I saw the Sekhmet gacha from Sweet Lies Designs, I knew I had to play it. At L$50 a play, you get the chance of winning either the rare texture change mask, or one of 4 collar and sceptre sets.  I have pretty good luck with gachas, and won the mask on my first try, and as I liked all of collar and sceptre sets, I was content enough to just play one more time, and ended up with set #3. As quickly as possible, I put my look together, feeling like a priestess of Sekhmet, if not Sekhmet herself, and headed over to the Ancient Egypt/Amarna sim, and spent the day pretending that it was 2014BC instead of 2014AD.

Sekhmet2
Sekhmet Mask, Collar & Scepter - Sweet Lies Original jpg

I have included a picture of the gacha board so that you can see the differences between the different collar sets. Now, I did notice that the collar I got, while it says it is the #3, has blue and white stones, instead of the red and white like the picture, so I have sent a notecard to Hadarah Steamer, the owner and designer of Sweet Lies, to let her know of the difference. Either way, I think I am going to be walking around the grid as a priestess of Sekhmet for as long as possible…well, at least until I start putting together my next look for all you lovely readers :)

Edit : I received a reply from Hadarah, and she has fixed the items in the gacha. So if any of you fab readers tried the gacha and got the same set I did with the miscoloured stones, do not hesitate to send her a notecard about it. I love when a designer reponds so quickly to a sent notecard or IM. Thank you so much Hadarah!

So, until then…TTFN!
