Weekend Sale at House of Darcy!

Get PiercedHello There Fab Free’rs! I’m certain you’ve noticed what this post is about without reading a word. Piercings. This weekend only House of Darcy has lowered their VIP group join fee to just 50 lindens, and all individual items are marked down to 50 lindens each. House of Darcy is known for their detailed, intense piercing sets. Needless to say I was thrilled to hear about this sale and discounted entry into their VIP group.

I went through the shop wearing my House of Darcy group tag and picked up no less than 12 past and current FREE group gifts and exclusives. The VIP exclusive items that are separate from the VIP gifts are also FREE for this weekend only. Essentially that means I paid the one time fee of 50 lindens and was able to pick up 12 detailed piercing sets at no additional cost. The 5 above pictured piercing sets are just a sample. I do want to mention that some of these gifts are older, so don’t expect to see appliers. At least one set also includes classic tattoo layers to enhance the piercings. Each gift includes the full piercing set in several colors. I had to manually adjust the size and location of the individual parts to each piercing to fit my mesh face and body. Additionally the piercings that have two sections, such as chest and face, can be worn separately as well as together. Before I forget, many of the gifts are either unisex, or include a male and female version!
Henna MoonLastly, after picking up all the awesome FREE VIP Gifts at House of Darcy, I couldn’t resist this henna style tattoo for just 50 lindens. This back piece does include an Omega applier as well as the classic system tatoo layer. I think this stylized crescent moon is just pretty enough to look good with a more feminine appearance, but masculine enough to be worn by someone more rugged. There’s roughly one day left for this amazing sale, so don’t hesitate to run over to House of Darcy and join their VIP group before the sale ends and their join fee goes back up on Monday.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Summer Romance

Summer Romance

It’s a beautiful Saturday and I have lots of goodies for you! My pretty look made me think of summer romance… flowers and picnics… and it all began with the new FREE group gift from *COCO* Clothes. The group is FREE to join so the pale pink scoop neck Tee shirt with 3quarter sleeves you see me wearing is yours for 0L. It comes in mesh fits for classic avatars, as well as Maitreya and Slink fits.

Summer Romance 2

I got a notice this morning that one of my favorite hair designers was offering a new VIP Group Gift. If you are a member of the Mina Hair VIP group, you can pick up the Juliet hair for women in essential colors FREE as a group gift right now at the main store. If you need the group tag, it will cost 200L to join, but Mina Hair offers monthly gifts — one for the ladies and one for the gents. And they are always as generous and lovely as this one.

I wanted some jewelry to add to the neckline of my outfit so I stopped by .:ECCO:. because I’d heard that there were new lucky letter boards to try. There are, in fact, three new lucky letter boards! Two are FREE to all, and one is VIP exclusive only. To use the VIP lucky letter board you have to wear your .:ECCO:. group tag (which is 200L), but your fee is well worth it as you get access to monthly group gifts as well as a large number of past group gifts as well.

While I was visiting, my letter came up on the VIP board, and I picked up this Thalia Choker with color change hud. It has a black thong and you can change the beads to 8 possible color choices for mix and match delight!

Summer Romance 3

While I was at .:ECCO:. I noticed that there were two other gifties that were a perfect match for the summer romance feel of my outfit… and these were completely FREE. If you don your FabFree group tag (the group is FREE to join) you can pick up a gift of these Tipped Floral Flats as a gift courtesy of .:ECCO:. In the box, you’ll find pairs to fit Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza feet.

I also picked up this FREE Floral Satchel by donning my SL Frees & Offers Group tag. This pretty floral bag is the FREE gift from .:ECCO:. as part of that group and added a nice final touch to my outfit.
