Hello Tuesday: ADD’s Christy Bodysuit

Hello Tuesday ADD Bodysuit

I am huge fan of Hello Tuesday. Held weekly on the Cosmopolitan Sim, I always find at least one fantastic deal. This week, I found ADD’s simple yet sexy Christy bodysuit! It only comes in light purple, but for 50L it is worth its weight in pixelated gold! It’s so pretty and fit Maitreya perfectly!  For the photo above, I kept things simple with a ballet pose. 

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

Runaway to Summer

Runaway to Summer

I spent most of my day tripping over piles of snow today, so when I got home from my RL wanderings, I quickly got into some summery duds, grabbed a bouquet and headed off to a warm-looking sim to forget what it feels like to have snow in your boots.  No teeth chattering here!

The Broken Thread

Le Fil Cassé have just started their very own inworld group, and to inaugurate it, there’s a fabulous new group gift!  This very lovely warm burgundy dress is completely free when you join the free group.  It also comes with a matching headband that gives a lovely little touch of whimsy to the outfit.  Exactly what I needed!

Stay Golden

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I’m dreaming of the spring and summer seasons… oh how I miss the nice weather. I set up a Jacuzzi at my log home to experience that summer moment. The Linden homes never change snow in the winter months unless you set up your own so I can just pretend Winter doesn’t exist here…

Golden Hour

This pretty golden dress only costs 55L at Evolve. It’s on sale temporarily, and you can also get this dress in green, red, and orange. I went for the gold because I was in a golden type of mood. These dresses should be on sale until this Thursday but go ASAP if you want it because sometimes they are taken down at different times.

Sizes Included

  • Freya
  • Lara
  • Legacy

Higgle!

I’m also showing a bunch of jewelery from Higgle tonight. I’ve posted a closeup so you can see all the intricate details and fine crafting that went into the creation of these beautiful jewlery pieces. Each item only costs 1 Linden each on the Marketplace.

Coming Soon

  • The rings shown on each of my hands are each 1L gifts & they fit Maitreya, Kupra, Legacy, Reborn, & Belleza mesh hands. It’s such a treat for me to find Belleza rings, as rings are a hot item that I can’t often find in my body size. Facing from where you’re looking, my left hand is wearing the Speranza ring set, which is a number of rings that wrap around three fingers. These rings come in sizes for both your left & right hands. You can purchase that ring set right here for only 1L. On the right, I am wearing the large, glamourous Melchior ring. This is perfect for for a more formal look, and it costs only 1L on the Marketplace. This ring can only be worn on your left hand. As it’s 1L, you may also gift this ring for your partner! It’s a wonderful gift, and beautifully made. ❤ Both gifts include texture change huds that allow you to change the colours of the metal of the ring bands and the gem stones.
  • My ear jewlery is 1L, which can be found for sale here. This piece comes in gold and there is a hud included to change the colour of the gem stone in the centre. This isn’t an earring, but a pretty wire decor earpiece.
  • The pretty floral necklace and arm braclet are also a 1L gift, which you can grab here. Both items are included in the package!

Return to Fabia

Fabia is such a generous designer! I have collected so many of their hairs overtime and I’m just starting to try them all on. This is the May hairstyle and it’s a current group gift. The Fabia group currently costs 200L to join. The hair includes several colour huds and a style hud that allows you to style the bangs or turn them off. It’s a super cute ponytail!

See you soon, FabFree!

Here Comes the 4L Bride!

A Blushing Bride for Just 4L

Love is in the air and SL’s wedding season approaches.  Valentine’s Day weddings have a been the seasonal kick off since the beginning of time (well, virtual time, anyway).  But, what’s a bride to do if she doesn’t have oodles of Linden to spend on her special day?  Never fear, Desi is here!

I set out to create an entire wedding outfit for less than 200L including dress, shoes, hair, flowers, jewelry, makeup, and a pose. I had two rules: the outfit would have to be something I would actually wear and the items couldn’t be part of a weekly/weekend special so they’d be available to our FabFree Readers if they wanted to check them out.  In the end, this amazing outfit only cost FOUR (4!) Linden!!! (Plus a group join fee!)

Assembling an elegant bridal package was a harder task than I could have imagined, but thanks to hints and tips from my blogging sister, Jacx Broome-Waverider, I ended up with a beautiful ensemble to reflect my own tastes in bridal finery.

First, I had to say yes to a dress.   I hopped on over to Siss Boom because I remembered seeing a white gown on the Lucky Boards.  You can read more about my obsession with Siss Boom‘s FREE no-group lucky boards here.  It took about 20 minutes, but HOORAY!  I found a beautiful simple white gown named Wayward.  It’s elegant and comes in two styles – sheer and solid.  I am wearing shear.  The solid version has modesty backing to the top.  Cost : FREE!!!

Dress Sizes:

  • eBody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus
  • TMP

Next came hair.  Jacx reminded me that No-Match recently had a bun posted as the group gift. We teleported over to find a new group gift, but quickly made our way to the VIP room.  The group gift was not actually a bun, but, rather, hair attachments (called No-Embrace) that could be used with bridal hair. However, in perusing the fabulous room of VIP Gifts, I found No_You Rock which is my style of a messy but classy updo complete with pearls in it.  I paired that with the No-Embrace Pearls accessory to create a pretty head of hair for the wedding outfit.  Price: two free group gifts with 50L join.

Beloved & Truth Closeup

I tried to find a nice veil for cheap, but didn’t score.  The ones I tested off of MP were, well, circa 2006.  I did, however, find a pretty Pearl and Pewter Tiara from Nightfairy.  You have to fiddle a little with it, but, overall, it works.  Cost: 1L

For jewelry, I stalked MP for a good hour to find something pretty.  I found two sets from Beloved that I liked, but settled on the Teardrop set in Silver because it matched the Tiara.  Cost: 1L

For flowers, I found a simple but pretty bouquet at Wedding Princesse on MP that is currently being offered as a dollarbie.  This really is a no-frills bouquet, but you only need it for a hot minute before the dancing begins!  Cost: 1L

For shoes, I found LaPerla’s Apple Sandal for Maitreya in White on MP.  They are simple and pretty, but you really can’t see them under the dress. Cost: 1L

Finally, to strike a pose for my official wedding album, Jacx sent me to MP to An Lar poses where for 0 Linden, I picked Like a Lady #4.  Cost: FREE!!!

Total Cost for this outfit and pose?  4L (plus 50L group fee for No-Match)

Hiya, this will be my last post for a while. Dealing with RL health issues. 😦 I will hurry back to you all, soon as possible.

2 Straws, Wanna Share?

We all love free items. The best thing about second life is the wonderful free items you can pick up around the grid. And the absolute best free place IMHO in second life is Free Dove. The Free Dove has been a staple for many years now. It’s a great way to find new creators, pick up cute outfits, hair, shoes. With a trip to Free Dove, you can outfit yourself with a whole weekend wardrobe and not spend a linden. 🙂 Jacx was craving an ooey-gooey cotton candy milkshake, so stopped by the local bakery for her sugar craving, modeling a cute skirt and top set from Luxe Paris, available at Free Dove. The free Latte set features a tee-style top with 3/4 sleeves and a flirty short skirt, in an off-white color. This well-constructed set comes in a large variety of sizes. To have this sweetie for your very own, hop on over to Free Dove, join the free group, and enjoy.

 Sizes

  • Belleza Freya, Venus
  • Slink Hourglass, Physique
  • Ocacin
  • S, M, L, Classic, Fitmesh
  • Maitreya, Maitreya Loose Waist
  • Voluptuous
  • Alpha, Top, & Skirt
  • Tonic Curvy, Fine

Milk Shaking It Up

The good news is we now have another outlet store on the grid. The Designer Outlet is a monthly event running from the 7th of the month through the 28th of the month. 42 shops are involved, with scads of bargains to be had. Jacx while looking over the new event, picked up the Cotton Candy Milkshake from BananaN for just 39L. I just love BananaN, they make wonderful items with a special touch of whimsy, that is just adorable. If you are in the mood for bargain hunting, drop over to The Designer Outlet and check out all the goodies.
