Fab Free Designer Friday – 11/17/2017 – roro

roro Gifts & Info
Hello There Fab Free’rs! Today has been the longest Friday ever! Okay maybe not, but it sure felt that way for me. I am so glad to be here with you sharing this week’s Designer Friday post. Today I get to talk about a little shop called roro.  This shop is an eclectic ladies clothing shop with a playful spin on what could be considered bohemian style. Along with the unique clothing style, you’ll also find nail appliers, jewelry, and accessories at roro.

Don’t let the size of the roro shop fool you, there’s lots of shopping to be done. Also there are many opportunities for FREE and inexpensive items. The roro landing point places you near the “Gift” section and the Information area of the shop. There are a couple of Lucky Letter boards, and a Night Prize board, all of which are open for everyone to play. No group is needed. Also in this same area are a ton of inexpensive items. Most of what I saw in this “Gift” area at roro ranged in cost from just 1 linden to 10 linden in cost. Do not forget to check out the desk in the little information corner of the roro shop.

It’s in that little corner where you’ll not only find the info about current and upcoming hunts and events happening at roro, you’ll find the FREE and Exclusive gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. This bright and colorful skirt is FREE to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. There are a few additional gifts for other groups in this area also. You simply need to wear the appropriate group tag for each gift. Happy Shopping Fab Free! I hope you have a Fabulous weekend!

My Own World

My Own World

Panic Mode

I woke up this morning with a touch of “holiday panic.” You know, that feeling you get when the holidays are creeping up on you waaaay too fast. Your heart starts racing, you feel like you can’t breathe… you break out in a cold sweat. Yeah. It seems like summer was just starting… and now it’s almost Thanksgiving. 😮

I headed out in search of a quiet place to collect my thoughts and wound up on the couch at a coffee bar on the Oh Deer sim. A couple of lattes and some smooth jazz later, I think I might be kinda-sorta-maybe ready to tackle the holidays.

Or maybe I’ll just start with a turkey and see how it goes.

A Sweater and Leather

Before running off in a coffee panic, I managed to get myself dressed in the latest group gift from Ghee. The Ombre Sweater and Leather Pants duo come in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh standard XXS-L with alpha layers
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

A texture-change HUD is included so you can choose from brown, black, burgundy, and blue ombre for the sweater, and the same colors (without the ombre) for the pants.

Since the sweater is cropped, and I was cold thanks to the snow and all, I added a tank top underneath. I picked up the Enora tanks by Edenia on the Marketplace for 1L and used the included appliers for Maitreya. Check out Pru’s post HERE to see what they look like without a sweater.

To “top” things off, I added a cute hat. You can pick up this derby – as well as a baseball cap, felt hat, and Homburg hat – as a free gift from ICONIC at HairOLogy. I didn’t realize how pretty it was until I turned on my windlight and saw the lovely textures!

Each hat comes with a HUD containing several colors (varies by hat), and all are resizeable from the HUD. I’m sure they would also look great on the guys.

Ok, now that I’m all latte’d up, I think I’m ready to brave Costco to do some shopping. Until next time! 😀

Not Ready for Cold Weather

I wear short skirts_001

Not ready for cold weather…

I’m not ready for cold weather. It got nippy here where I live and then the weather warmed up yesterday and it prompted me to look for warmer clothes in Second Life too. So I was really pleased when I saw that Kom‘s November group gift was this really pretty (and versatile) short skirt. It comes in all your favorite body sizes and includes a color change hud with 7 colors to choose from as well. I was partial to this teal color which I paired with a blueberry gift top that I blogged a while back that you can now get on the marketplace for just 1L.

Skirt sizes available:

  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Something pretty

I wanted a little something extra to go with my outfit so I stopped by The Forge to see what was available. Sometimes in-store gachas hold sweet surprises. I discovered the Boadicea’s Necklaces and really liked the celtic look and fine detailing on them. I gave the 50L gacha a spin and pulled one of the commons in “rust” which matched my outfit very nicely. The rares were quite beautiful as well and would be worth a few extra pulls to try to nab one at just 50L per spin.

Sparkle and Shine

Blog coming soon to FabFreeHey there Fab Friends!  The other day, when I posted about a 60L special at Siss Boom, I mentioned that I was actually going in to pick up the new group gift!

Well here she is…

The Fireside Formal Mum Gown is the latest addition to the very large selection of group gifts at Siss Boom which you can find right at the entrance in the VIP shelf.  This is a real keeper for me as I am in love with both the design and the shimmery silver texturing.  It will fit you like a glove on the following mesh bodies…

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • TMP

This group does have a bit of a steep join fee at 500L, but seriously…  tons of really high quality gifts to snag including formal wear, casual wear, lingerie and even footwear and accessories.  Join it – and stay in it!

ps.  (hangs head) and be careful not to accidentally leave it when you are checking the join fee like I did…  I may have to pay to rejoin! lol

New Horizons

New Horizons

If you were reading carefully the last few days, maybe you will have noticed Love mention that I was a Renegade Time Lady HERE.

I’ve been traveling the vortex on and off for the past 7 years, and along the way I’ve picked up a lot of great gifts.  The most recent ones are a little Rock n Roll, a little crazy, and just look cool.  Now where can I get these glasses in RL?

 Cynfully Sweet

This hot little dress is a great find from Cynful, perfect for landing on alien planets or just hanging out in my TARDIS, plus it’s free! They’ve got a bunch of really nice group gifts on the wall there, and the group is 0L to join.  You can’t say no to that!

1975….or anywhere in time and space

I just LOVE these glasses from Since 1975 .  They are such a great addition to my ever-growing sunglasses collection (it’s a bit of a disease, I’ve got a massive collection in RL too).  They’re just perfect for keeping the rays of dying stars at bay.  The group at Since 1975  is free to join, making these puppies free!

Phew.  Time for a rest!  Or is that the cloister bell I hear ringing?

A Timelady’s work is never done!

Not a Cloud in the Skye

Listen to Your Heart
Hello Fabulouses, and Happy Friday at last!  Here I am enjoying one final moment at the shore (Ripley is off chasing gulls) before the shopping and prep work for Thanksgiving begin.  It sure would be nice to spend the whole weekend here at NorderNey, curled up on the beach with a pile of books.  Someday, maybe!

A Hint of Pink in the Skye

My sweet swimwear from Just Ordinary features white hearts scattered across a pale pink background.  “Skye” features realistic folds in the fabric, and golden half circle closures on both the bikini top and swimsuit bottom.  I love the flared skirt, asymmetrical hemline, and the ties that dangle down my back.  To add this free group gift to your beach wear collection, simply teleport over to the shop, switch to the Just Ordinary group tag (it’s completely free to join), and tap the group gift vendor.  This package offers something for everyone – from classic mesh, to fit mesh and versions for popular mesh bodies.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars

Off to Save Some Birds

The poor seagulls……  The pupster has been having the time of his life chasing them up and down the surf while I tried to capture the perfect picture.  One feathered fellow just caught my eye, and I could tell he was getting pretty fed up with Rip’s antics.  It’s time for mission “Gull Rescue” to swing into operation.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
