Ahoy there, Fab Free! My trusty sea dog, Ripley, spotted a Fabulous Find today through his spyglass, and sounded the alarm as he paced the deck of our ship. I followed his pointing nose, and caught sight of what looked to be the arms of a tentacled Kraken reaching above the waves, but it was actually the whimsical Octa dress from .Ecko. While I admired the dress from a distance, Ripley took control of the rudder, and piloted us safely to shore so I could net a Saturday Special Edition outfit to share with our wonderful readers.
This strapless frock is the most recent free gift from .Ecko. for Fabulously Free in SL group members, and features white octopus arms playfully waving across a jet-black background. The gift comes in five standard mesh sizes for classic avatars, but hugged every curve of my Maitreya Lara body after adjusting the alpha layer. It left my shoulders bare to enjoy the caress of gentle ocean breezes as my pup and I continued our sea adventure to scope out the rest of my outfit.
Mesh for Classic avatars: XXS, XS, S, M, L
As we got underway once more, a friendly seagull swooped down bearing welcome news of a brand-new gift from Truth Hawks for Truth VIP Group Members. For a one-time fee of 265L, members will have access to an exclusive monthly hair style, which is scheduled to arrive the first week of each month, and will only be available for one month. In addition, members will be granted early access to sales. Deja, November’s free VIP hairstyle, is a loose, side-swept ponytail complete with the optional wispy bangs I am wearing here, as well as a cuff and side hair which I opted not to add in my picture. This generous gift contains a full fat-pack of all color HUD variations Truth offers! In real life, I often sport a ponytail, and I wish it was as glamorous and elegant looking as this one.
Accessories….The Exclamation Point of an Outfit
In my blog post here, I featured Victoria Gladiator boots from Ben’s Boutique. I discovered today if you join the in-world Ben’s Beauty group, you can receive this free Harmony necklace. It comes complete with a HUD that allows you to choose from 20 different scarf-stone colors and 4 metal textures. I love how this piece of jewelry combines the look of a necklace with the added pop of a scarf, all wrapped up in one versatile piece. I opted to stay with black and silver to coordinate with my dress. Best of all, the Ben’s Beauty group is free to join! Angular bangles from Izzies, and hoop earrings from Phoebe Piercings and More added the final touches of bling.
After slipping on RADEX Mesh Hayal High boots, which I found on the Marketplace for 89L, this
pirate seafarer was ready for more adventures on the deep blue ocean with her ever-faithful, bargain-sniffing hound by her side. Until next time, happy shopping!
