What a ride

Time flies doesn’t it?

I was looking through the posts I’ve made here at FabFree and to my surprise realized that I’ve just passed the fifty posts mark. It still kinda feels like yesterday when I was scrambling through the new blogger application and trying not to ‘derp out’ as I filled in the notecard. In some ways, being able to write for a blog that I’ve long admired still feels more than a little surreal but to commemorate this milestone I’ve decided to recreate the styling that I did for my very first post at FabFree (if anyone’s curious it’s here). While the outfit that’s shown here today certainly isn’t a carbon copy by any means I felt that it still had that ‘cute with an edge’ vibe going for it. Here are the details;

High waisted

If you’ve been following Kat’s or Carson’s posts, you’d have notice that there are a ton of fun hunts going on for March. Seeing that it’s been a while since I’ve been on the trail, I decided to grab my trusty magnifying glass and do a little bit of sleuthing for myself. The Paws, Tails, and Whiskers Hunt 2 looked very promising and I ended up at (P3) Pixel Purrfect Productions to see if I could suss out where their prize was hidden. Turns out that luck was on my side and for just 1L the Tish Skirt became a great new addition to my inventory as I don’t own many skirts in this high waisted style. The skirt is very adorable with its anime print, sweet seafoam shades, and silky material mingling very well together. If you’re like me and appreciate the little details, you’ll also love the well-made buttons and bows on the skirt front. The Tish Skirt comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh (XXS-L) with alpha layer
  • Slink Physique and Hourglass
  • Maitreya

While you’re at (P3) Pixel Purrfect Productions, be sure to poke around some more as they have no group needed lucky chairs upstairs that cycle through the letters rather quickly. The Paws, Tails, and Whiskers Hunt 2 is running until the 31st of March so if you’re looking for cute animal-themed clothing, accessories or decor be sure to hit the hunt trail before then.

Lucky Letters

Now that I had a cute new skirt I was suddenly hit with the problem of what to pair it up with. Would it be a button down or a more casual t-shirt? Should I go with bright colors or a muted one so as to not overwhelm the entire outfit? What I did know was that the top had to be short or something that came in a clothing layer so that the meshes won’t end up cutting into each other (SL styling problems amirite?) and with that thought in mind I remembered that I had recently won the Teeny Sheer Halter Tops from one of the Lucky Letter boards at Sn@tch. These comfy halter tops were just perfect as they came in classic clothing layers (shirt and tank top) and since this is Sn@tch applier huds for Slink Physique and the Omega system were generously thrown into the as well. Not only that but you’ll also be getting ten different colors in the free prize package and needless to say I found a very fitting one to go with the skirt. Just a little note, however, the tops certainly live up to their name and are a little sheer so get that tape ready if you’re so inclined.

Inked up again

Just like socks and fishnets, tattoos can cause a bit of a hiccup when I’m dressing too. Once again generous creators come to the rescue and today I’d like to highlight Reckless. Not only are their tattoos intricate and well detailed, their group gifts come in classic layers and appliers for mesh bodies. Take Vida for example, the gift package contains:

  • Classic tattoo layers (fresh and faded)
  • Jacket layer (fresh and faded)
  • Shirt layer (fresh and faded)
  • Tank top layer (fresh and faded)
  • TMP Applier Hud
  • 3-in-1 Applier Hud for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink mesh bodies

I am once again very pleased with the result of wearing a classic tattoo layer with the corresponding applier, it’s the best of both worlds really. Vida is one of the group gifts that’s currently out at the Reckless main store and while there is a 75L join fee in place, you’ll be able to get past group gifts as well.

What a ride (boots)

Booted feet

I just can’t keep away from boots for very long and certainly not when they’re steampunk themed like the Charming Boots from Monomania. If you’ve already guessed that the gears and the baroque detailing on the body of the boots are my favorite part then you’re right! The burnished gold accents on this boots certainly don’t hurt it either as does the fact that you don’t need mesh feet to be able to wear them. The Charming Boots have a resize script in them and in the gift folder, you’ll also receive and alpha layer and boots base to make fitting a painless experience.  These lovely boots are a free group gift for Teleport Hub which is currently holding a free join exercise until the 15th of this month.

And that’s a wrap! Before I hit the grid again, I’d like to thank the FabFree team and all of you wonderful readers out there for having me here on the blog. Time flies when you’re having fun and it’s been nothing but a blast! Here’s to fifty more posts eh? I’ll catch you guys later!
