Rubbing Elbows

I have always loved the fashions from [LeeZu!]  so it was a given that I would accept the invitation and attend the Grand Re-Opening on Saturday. There was a DJ and plenty of party guests including LeeZu herself (if you look closely, she can be spotted in some the background photos). This first three gowns were free group gifts which are located on the second floor. The group is free to join and there are a total of six gifts! The last gown was something I won, although it can be purchased and comes in three colors. The diamond choker I am wearing with the Kiss Sarah gown is from Alyssa Bijoux Jewelry, which I purchased from Marketplace. My poses are from .[ pose+ivity ].. There is a July Sparkler Group Gift for subscribing, and it is free to join (see below for Main Store LM).

Spring Flowers And Winter Berries

kunglers3f

One of the wonderful things about Second Life is that when you tire of winter snow, there’s sure to be a warm-weather sim just a click away. I did a search for “garden” and wound up in this lovely, peaceful meadow – I feel like I’m in a Van Gogh painting. Look, I caught a butterfly!

This gorgeous floral gown was recently sent to Kungler’s group members (check your group notices or head over to the store to pick one up). I love the way it hugs my curves in old Hollywood glam-style. The Kungler’s group is 50L to join, but every month group members receive something unique and beautiful – you won’t be disappointed! :-)

My jewelry, called Winter Berries, are advent gifts from Chop Zuey Couture. These gifts are free to everyone, and are all still available, so pop over and pick yours up. My hair and skin are not free, but are both amazing deals from “”D!va”” and Glam Affair at Collabor88. The luscious lips of the skin and the wispy strands of hair… I couldn’t resist!

I think I’ll just stand here and drink in the beauty of nature for a while. It’s a long time until spring comes… in real life, that is.

Wake up, Open the door and Escape to the sea

PERTURB/ation have moved locations and to celebrate their reopening they have put out a new group gift of this stunning necklace. You will need to join the new Pluto group.. you can join through my profile.

Imabee have finally opened their store! I have been seeing previews of Brendon Papp’s skins all over the feeds and I have been dying to get my paws on them as they looked so cute. There is an opening gift skin called “I cried all night” and you will need to join the group to get it, then touch the poster on the wall.

This is the Group Gift.. you get two skin tones, the pale shown here and a darker coffee shade. You also get choice of cleavage/no cleavage and freckles.

And also there is 50% of all skins to celebrate! All skins are at 350L. Of course me being a skin addict, I had to indulge so I bought a couple to show you a more subtle make up. This one below is called “Lucy in the Morning”

I adore the flushed cheeks on the skin.. its so so sexy and cute! The other skin I bought is called “Lucy goes out Tonight” and it is worn in the other pictures below. The antlers I am wearing are special 60L Valentines Edition Fa(u)ntasy antlers from Sweet Leonard and are part of the Super Bargain Saturday. The Ears are Dollarbies from Buried.

POSH! have moved into their new mainstore at Liberty City and are taking part in a simwide 50L weekend event, which will happen every weekend from now on. This week there is a special Valentines set for 50L..

You get a yummy pink, a sultry red and a lickable vanilla blonde colour. I must say, I love the pink .. the little heartshaped hair accessory is just so cute.

Lamb still have their 50L friday hair out at the time of me writing this, which is well worth taking a peek at. I am wearing the Powder “Oh Sugar” 50L Friday style in the dress pictures below. They also have a Valentines hair pack out of one style called Baby’s on Fire in Red and Pink for 100L

If you are still looking for some gowns for one of the many Valentines Day balls going on around SL, then take a look at these.. First off, Dressing Aphrodite are taking part in the 60L weekend and have put out two gowns for their contribution. One in a vibrant red and the other is more demure in white.

The Red gown is called Serendipity and comes with several skirt options including a pencil skirt option. This is 60L

The White gown is called Serenity and comes with several options for the top and for the skirt, including a huge poofy bridal skirt. Again this is 60L

If you prefer a darker shade, then run over to Trubble to find this free Starstruck gown.

There is also this Candy pink set as a Dollarbie on the other side of the steps.

N-Core have a selection of free shoes as group gifts at their store. Simply join the group, then click the boxes to get the goodies.. This set of boots is one of the gifts you will find there.

They are hugely customisable via menu, which allows you to change their size, colour of both the boot and the legwarmer. There is even the option of removing the legwarmer if you wanted to. Sorry the picture turned out a bit dark.

This cute pose is part of the Valentines Dollarbie from Doll and come complete with the flowers shown.. perfect to take some adorable pictures for your S/O.

There is also another pose included in the pack, with another set of flowers for you to stand with.

And lastly.. The sad news of Alexander McQueens death rocked the fashion world a few days ago in both RL and even in SL. When I heard the news, it was quite a shock. I havent always been very involved in high fashion, but some times a designer would catch my eye from an artistic point of view being that I am an artist first and foremost in RL. Lee was one of these designers. His fashion shows were always a feast for the eyes and he had this delicious rebellious streak through him that just appealled to me. His designs always seemed to speak to me, in particular his Fall 2006 “Widows of Culloden” collection.. so hauntingly beautiful and tragically romantic. The image of a ghostly Kate Moss projected into a glass pyramid is such a striking one that it will stay in my memory forever. One piece in particular, which is one of my most favourite designs.. and most likely where my obsession with antlers came from, is this one below…

There is so much to say about this man and his talent and vision. As an artist he will be missed as much as the fashion world will miss him. My thoughts are with his loved ones and friends.

Lee Alexander McQueen – 1969 – 2010

There is currently an Alexander McQueen tribute being organised by Avenue Models to take place on 28th February which many designers in SL are signing up to be a part of. These creations will be sold afterwards with 100% of the proceeds going towards charities that he was a patron of. This is probably the wrong place to write about it as it isnt free by a long shot, but I will add more details when I know more. With nearly 12000 people in the group, I am sure it is of interest to some if only on a purely creative level if nothing else… and that is what we are celebrating.. without creativity, we wouldnt be doing what we do.

When the Sun Sleeps..

…All the goodies seem to come out over night!

Im going to start off with the Belleza group gift that was released last night as it is the skin I am wearing throughout the entire post. To celebrate the release of the new skinline called Alyson, they send out a fatpack of truely adorable and yummeh Alyson skins for all of us girlies to swoon over. There are four skin tones with the options of cleavage and hairbase.

Now remember… Belleza Group Membership costs 250L to join and considering that in the last month alone they have given out an Xmas gift of skins aswell as fatpacks for both guys and girls, it is truely truely worth it if you can. I adore  the face on these skins and the delicate freckles are gorgeous. The lashes are my own, not part of the skin just so you know.

Here you can see the cleavage option on the skin.. The Emerald Careless Whispers lingerie that I am wearing in this picture is available on the Lucky Boards at Aqua right now and also comes with a Chemise and transparant versions which are uber sexy.

Also at Aqua for a limited time today until Ayanna changes it are these three outfits at 1L. So get your bootehs over there and scoop them up while you still can!

Metro Sensual in Green

Just Elegant in Red

Summer of Love #4 .. got to love the retro print on this dress!

If you remember the Ice Hunt at Kouse’s Sanctum I blogged a couple of days ago here, you will remember the promise of a bonus gown if you found all of the seven Snowflakes and sent the folder of Perfect Snowflakes to Kouse with your name on it. Well I recieved my gown and it is gorgeous..

Also released last night was the February gift from Dressing Aphrodite which can be found just behind the subscribo kiosk.

And lastly, there have been a heap load of additions to the Haiti Relief Skybox at Scribble. I picked up a couple more things there last night including these two dresses..

Hope for Haiti Gown by SYSY – 99L

Haiti Aid Dress by III – 80L (also available in red and white)

Miguelina Lingerie by Blacklace – 98L

Lua hair worn in all pictures is by Analog Dog and is inside the huge glowing freebie ball found on the beach.

Dark Fairytales..

If you are looking for some breathtaking gowns, you will adore these etherial gowns from Kouse’s Sanctum. They have moved to their own snowy wonderland sim and to celebrate, they are holding a mini hunt. You are looking for 7 large snowflakes placed around the whole sim, each one costs 1L to buy.

Inside you have not only one of the stunning gowns below, but also something called “Perfect Snowflake“. When you have collected all of the 7 snowflakes, you will have 7 perfect snowflakes… move them into another folder and rename it with your name and “Ice Hunt” and then send to Kouse Singh to get a bonus prize! I don’t know what it is yet as I have yet to recieve mine so it will be a surprise for me too!

Anyways… on to the gowns… I am currently obsessed with using the No Salvation sim as my backgrounds for nearly all my pictures. It is such a beautiful sim and the Cathedral is a sight to behold. It is my home away from home and I am always found wandering around it.

Snowflake Number 1 – Ariel

Snowflake Number 2 – Glimmer

Snowflake Number 3 – Glimmer (shorter)

Snowflake Number 4 – Diana

Snowflake Number 5 – Lynet

Snowflake Number 6 – Lynet Fae (wings included)

Snowflake Number 7 – Princess

Tell me when you hear my heart stop…

The Death Becomes Her hunt is just past the halfway mark, so you still have time to take part if you want to grab some darkly themed goodies. There are alot of  gifts for you to enjoy from clothing to furniture. I cheated a bit and sneaked off to get some of the outfits I saw one of my friends had got from it after she showed me a few things.

The starting point if you want to go from the very beginning is at Morbid Mausoleum… you are searching for grey death masks.

This stunning Rose Printed dress is the hunt prize from Dark Water Designs. You get two ways to wear it in the pack. You can wear it the way I am, as a full one toned dress or  you can wear it with the darker skirt that is included.

The next jaw droppingly stunning gown is the hunt prize from A Touch of Ireland. You can wear it with or without the undershirt. The detailing on the corset is just exquisite. You need this in your wardrobe! Seriously!

This cute little dress is the prize from Ghenna.

And lastly this is a unisex coat from Blueblood. It comes with two coat tails, the shorter one shown here and a longer one.

The shoes worn in all pictures are the hunt prize from Unique Needs and are a pair of stilleto heels with skulls on the front and a pile of them on the heel base. The hair in all of these pictures is the Lua hair from the huge glowing freebie balls of hair on the beach at Analog Dog. When you land, fly upwards and you will see them. You cannot miss them.

Maitreya have set out two hair styles with hats in a Brown and Blonde shade for 50L each at their store to help raise funds for the Red Cross International Aid fund. I would just like to say thank you to those who went to the Scribble Donations Sky Box yesterday and contributed to the funds. You can read more about the appeal on my blog post from yesterday.

Im wearing the hair with the Overalls pack that SK Designs has set out for 5L. You get three colours in the pack. The Blue and Red shown here aswell as a Brown colour.

A New Year begins.. A New Decade of possibilities

Happy New Year to all the readers of Fab Free. I hope you all had a safe and happy transition into the New Decade. I was away for a couple of days so I missed blogging a few things, so Im playing catch up.

If you join the LeLutka group and search the notices, you will find some free gifts. One is a gorgeous pair of Saffron pumps, another is a set of scarves which has one for male and one for female inside and if you have been reading the Fashion Feeds over the last couple of weeks, you will have read about the new Ultra January 2010 Collection that they are releasing. To celebrate, they have been generous and placed a gift of 3 dresses in the notices so we can all have a taste of the beautiful and unique aethetics that run throughout the new collection.

This is the Emergency Gown in Red.

This is the Cylinder Gown in Pink.

And this one is my favourite.. its the Constricted Gown in Romantic. I adore it.. the cut of it, the flow of the skirt.. even though it isnt flexiprim, the design of it gives the illusion of movement. Of course if the corset and the neck piece isnt to your liking, you can also wear it without and it still looks equally as stunning.

The Saffron Pumps that are another of the gifts are so elegant and well crafted. I rarely enjoy the colour green, but I can see these are going to be well used part of my shoe collection!

Also if you are looking for some gorgeous eyes, then you simply have to go to Umedama. On the counter there are 3 free gifts with 4 eyes inside.

I hope you can see them in the pictures. They really are gorgeous!

8000 Members! Yay!

Renee has already posted some of the gifts that the wonderful designers generously gave out when we turned 8000 members yesterday, but Im going to show you some more!

The amount of gifts stunned everyone I think and I really cannot thank each and every one of the designers enough for the time and effort they put into all of the amazing and beautiful creations they gave out. Thank you, thank you, thank you! All of these except the Snow Queen Gown can be found in the notices of the Fab Free group in world. The Snow Queen Gown can be found by teleporting to their store at the SLURL below the picture.

On to the goodies! There were some pretty dresses and some stunning gowns given out! Just take a look!

This is the Hot Rumba dress that was given out by Saris Creations.

Lemania gave us this beautiful and very sexy but feminine Gypsy dress.

Firefly Fashions gifted us this special Fab Free edition of their Glitterball Gown, that also came with a shorter skirt for a more casual look, and a male version to match.

Island Style Designs put out this gorgeous Snow Queen gown at their store for free in celebration of 8000 members. Go and pick it up! Its beautiful! It also comes with a gorgeous Fur stole to wear with it.

This is the stunning FreeAtHart gown from AQUA made in an exclusive Fab Free colour and named in honour of our very own Renee Lowenhart. The pink shimmer on this gown is so beautiful.

And lastly, this beautiful silver gown called Maelle, was the gift from Ashli Designs.

The skin worn in all of the pictures was one of the skins in the gift given by Heartsick in a special Fab Free eyeshadow edition. The gift also contained a female shape and a male shape, and a gorgeous skybox by Burning Chrome. Renee showed the Illusion skin tone in her earlier post and I wore the Illusion tone in my post last night so I thought I would give you a glimpse of the beautiful Cassis skin tone. Again you get cleavage, no cleavage and freckle, no freckle options.

Yay for over 8000 members!
