Guest Blog by WHC Riler – It’s Worth The Wait.

A guest post by WHC Riler – It’s Worth The Wait., originally blogged [HERE]

I am so excited! It’s shaping up to be a fantastic month to be a resident of Second Life. There are free haunted houses and other scary builds, Halloween themed dances and it is an extremely active month for freebie/bargain hunters. Yesterday, I received word that the FREE GROUP GIFTS from HOORENBEEK have changed, so I rushed over to check them out. They have an unusual policy regarding their gifts, but Hoorenbeek is an excellent store and the gifts are fantastic. In order to be eligible for them you must first join their subscribo and wait two weeks before you can pick up them up. It sounds like it’s a hassle but since it’s a subscribo it won’t tie up one of your group slots, and the gifts from them are of high enough quality that it is worth the extra effort. The gifts do not change every month but since they require a waiting period to pick them up, it’s understandable that they are kept out longer to give people more time to pick them up. This month’s gift is the MESH Montgomery Jacket in gray. It is a perfect jacket for the weather as it turns colder, one that looks as if it will keep you warm during the coldest of days. The details are superb from the realistic lining of the hood to the buttons that could hold the jacket closed. The Montgomery Jacket looks rugged but still maintains a nice civilized look. I should warn you to please read the card included in the gift, it contains a short description of all the included parts and options. That is needed because the options included go beyond merely wearing the jacket open or closed. In the picture I am wearing it open along with the shirt insert and to give it a more complete look I grabbed the Gray Classic Tie from Nerd Monkey. The tie was a hunt gift from a previous hunt blogged in my entry “Basic Black? Not A Chance, This Is Exceptional Black!” and has been extremely useful to me. I also wanted to point out the skin I am wearing. It is the Halloween Hunt gift – Vincent at SEVEN DEADLY SKINS, but it’s a group only hunt. The group is 200 lindens to join which sadly makes it outside the scope of this blog, but the owner of Seven Deadly Skins does offer reduced prices to join every so often and I will try to keep track of when that happens to give everyone a heads up. If you already belong to the group, do the hunt, the skin is very nice. If you don’t already belong and don’t have the money to join, no worries. I will keep my eyes open for a better chance for you to join. Izara is very generous with her group gifts and Seven Deadly Skins is a good group to belong to. The Vincent gift comes with and without the hair base and is one of my favorite skins, so I imagine you will see me wearing it often. The hunt is on until Halloween, have fun and see you on the grid.

Plain & Simple

Snapshot

Some days it’s best to keep your outfit plain and simple, just as I keep most of my photos I use here at FabFree. Outside of adding my name and maybe a frame they are never photoshopped in any way. I do this because I want you, the reader, to see the things I am blogging exactly as they are without any fancy camera tricks.

I loved how nice and simple this denim dress from Cynful was. It can be causal, or even dressed up nicely depending on which accessories you choose to pair with it. Best of all, it is absolutely free at Club 108 on the wall with the rest of their opening group gifts.  I am all about details, especially when it comes to denim, and as you can see in the photo below, the amount of detail in this dress is wonderful. I think this would be a great staple piece for any SL wardrobe.

The Boho Culture Fair – Part 4

Barner Logo For Website With DateGood morning Fabulouses ;)  Want to see more fabulous finds from The Boho Culture Fair 2013?  OK!

Today, I wanted to share with you that LIV-Glam is offering four dollarbie (1L each) dresses, right at the entrance of their TBCF shop.  At the front door you will find The Chasing Pirates Dress in both blue and black.  I recently blogged the blue dress HERE, so I thought I would just direct you to it instead of going through the whole process of photos and credits.  If you wanted that dress, but didn’t want to pay the 500L join fee, now is your chance to pick it up in two colours for 1L each :)

As well as the two Chasing Pirates Dresses I mentioned above, you can find the Lauren Annabelle Dress, shown below that includes a hud for a few different colour options.

Here Kitty, Kitty!

Snapshot_002Hey Fabbies!  I have a couple of Peace On Earth Hunt 5 prizes to show you this evening :)  At Purplemoon Creations you will find this so, super adorable mesh Dita Dress in several sizes with co-ordinating alpha layer.    As soon as I opened it up, I knew I had to show it with the Al Vulo Jade 2 skin I just picked up at The Dressing Room for 70L, which incidentally came with these great brown eyes too.  The makeup theme just matches perfectly!

The little fur-friend on my shoulder is the prize you will receive from KittyCatS for the Peace on Earth Hunt 5, and the necklace I am wearing is a group gift from Needful Things called Autumns Frozen Soul.  The group is 70L to join, and there are several gifts to pick up.

Snapshot_005ps.  The hunt icon you are searching for is a globe. :)

Love Said Go To Airflow… So I Did!

airflow1_Final

Love asked me to go to Airflow because they have nice group gifts for men so I got on my bike and headed down there. Once I got there I joined the free group and snagged the gifts. Above I am wearing the Mesh Long T in Jazzy Blue which also comes in Smokey Red, Olive, and Black. I’ve paired it with the Rolled Up Denim Jeans that come with 2 different rolled up lengths.

airflowcollage_Final

Also among the variety of gifts you can pick up at Airflow are the Soft Leather Jacket I’m wearing in the top picture and the Sweater in the bottom picture. The jacket comes with the option of wearing it with a shirt, sweater, or no shirt. You will also find several scarfs as gifts for the cold months ahead.

You can find Love’s coverage of the female gifts here:

A Lucky Attic

Y&R / Hoorenbeek

I spent the morning checking out Y&R  and found some really adorable fashions for free, or nearly free either through group gifts / dollarbies or lucky board prizes!   (Oh shoot…  I just noticed someone rezzed in my picture above.. “say cheese whoever you are!”).

Before I get into the Y&R goodies, I have to tell you about the *WOOT* AWESOME FREE BOOTS I am wearing!  At Hoorenbeek if you have been a subscriber for more than two weeks you can pick up the Lucille Boots in Coffee as a free gift.  If you are a new subscriber, you will have to subscribe and wait the two week period.  Hopefully they will still be around in two weeks, but if not, you’ll be set for the next fantastic Hoorenbeek gift!  There is also a gift for men :)

Ok..  Onto the Y&R goods! I found the Long Hip Hop Girl T-Shirt up in the attic by the lucky boards as I was waiting.. and waiting… and waiting for my letter to come up!  This top is 30L, but I couldn’t pass it up because it went so cute with the new skirts I was about to win.  The skirt shown above is the Woolen Skirt LB Gift and the skirt below is the Half Body Skirt LB Pumpkin which both can be found in the lucky boards.  You’ll have to join the group to access the lucky boards, but it’s free.. and you’ll need to anyways to pick up the fantastic Woolen Socks and Everybody Hates Waiting Pose Set which are free group gifts by the entrance of the store.  The Big Bow Hairband was also found near the entrance of the store and was just 1L.  Doesn’t it look adorable with Truth’s new release Twila?  I have always been a big fan of Truth hair, but these new mesh styles are killin me!… and my bank lol.

Y&R / Hoorenbeek

I’m a little late on the whole Easter thing, but at Bella’s Lullaby you can pick up the BL Easter Gift with your free group tag activation, that includes the holdable bunny and the carrot nom.  They have a few gifts sitting around  such as the Girls Just Wanna Have Fun Rigged Mesh bag I showed the other day (and again today because I love it!) as well as group lucky boards.

The newest item in the lucky boards at Y&R is the Spring’s Back Dress which is the sweet belted red skirt below that I am showing with a plain white cami freebie from Fri.day.

Y&R / Hoorenbeek

My skin is called DolceBlue and is made by Modish.  This is not free, but OH so fabulous – and it can be found featured at The Kawaii Fair 2012!

Apparently I am So Innocent

B!asta

B!asta has a new group gift out for ladies on the Weekend Specials Wall!  You can grab the SO INNOCENT: APPARENTLY Denim Outfit that includes the lace trimmed denim skirt and also the matching white sweater.  It’s hard to see in my photo, but on the Weekend Specials Wall, you will also find a belly piercing in five different colours for free.  I put a bit of a western spin on this outfit, but you could go so many different ways with it!  The group is currently free to join.

While I was in B!asta picking up the new group gift, lucky letter L was on the board for me :)  I won the VIA MODA:  Sweater Dress & Tights Outfit below.

A Peaceful Autumn Breeze

hudson_001

Carson showed you the men’s group gift from Hudson Clothing Co. recently, which was a really awesome scarecrow costume – and now I am showing you the women’s gift.  By joining The Hudson’s Inworld group, which is free you can pick up the Autumn Breeze Dress and also the Suede Beaded Choker.

 Sometimes, when I’m not shopping or blogging… I love wandering through garden type relaxing sims and just enjoying the beauty that sim owners have created for us to enjoy. Tonight I stopped in at Peaceful Moments and was blown away with the scenery that makes for a great place to take photos if you enjoy photography in SL!  The photos in this blog were taken at there and I will be sure to return soon.
