Peace Love and Tie-Dye

Petite Empire Hello again Fab Free’rs and as always, thank you for stopping by! I’m excited to share with you some lovely group gifts for the month of July from some of my personal favorite designers. Starting top to bottom, there is this lovely hair with matching hair flowers from NSP Florals, a beautifully playful jumper from Petite Mort, and some killer shoes from Empire. I’m really not sure what style this collective look falls into, it’s a little bit boho, a little bit pin-up, and maybe even some glam rock thrown in. As if 3 fabulous group gifts were not enough, I also want to show you this gorgeous Catwa applier gacha from Essences. Whatever you want to call this look, I love it, and I hope you do also!
Floral Tie-dye EmpireI have to say I am loving the hairstyles NSP Florals has been releasing here and there. This style is a cute pulled back look with a little bun at the nape of the neck. I really should have taken a photo of the back of this hairstyle. I think this pretty hairdo is just styled enough to be worn with something formal, yet simple enough to be worn with an every-day look. The optional hair flowers are a gorgeous bonus. I love the amazing details in these darling little flowers. This hairstyle from NSP Florals is the FREE July group gift. The NSP Florals Updates group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens, however all the gifts are amazing, and you’re gonna want to know when new things come out anyway.

I am never not impressed with the items that come from Petite Mort. The July group gift is among my favorites of all the gifts from this awesome store. This playful tie-dyed romper/jumper/one piece whatever you want to call it, is so cute on I don’t want to take it off. This FREE group gift from Petite Mort comes in several mesh sizes including fit mesh and body specific sizes. I think my favorite part of this one-piece are the little bows at the hips! The Petite Mort in-world group is FREE to join, so don’t miss this gift or future ones!

Empire has quickly become a favorite store of mine, though Empire is relatively new in the realm of Second Life, their items are always detailed and skillfully made. These knee-high strappy heels are the July group gift at Empire. These seriously gorgeous shoes come with a group exclusive color hud that allows you to change various parts of the shoes between this “blueberry” purple shade, and this deep cherry shade. I decided to mix it up a little and make the shoes have a bit of both colors. Oh, and you also get to pick from the standard options as to what color the sole of the shoe is. Also, the gift includes a pair of shoes to fit the Lara body/feet, Freya, Venus, Isis, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. To get this FREE group gift, simply join the Empire group and click the gift vendor. You’ll find the Empire VIP group gifts waiting for you next to the lucky boards. There is a one time join fee for the Empire VIP group of 499 lindens, however the gifts are always exclusive colors, and so far I’ve never been disappointed!

Finally, how beautiful is this Catwa head applier skin from Essences?! One of my favorite gacha items are mesh head appliers. You’ll find the Corrie applier by Essences at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative. This pretty face is just 75 lindens per play with 10 commons, and 2 rares. Each one comes in a specific skin tone and makeup indicated, and works with Catwa mesh heads only.  Pru is wearing the number 7 common version of Corrie, however all the appliers, commons and rares are absolutely beautiful. I’ll include a copy of the gacha key below, ’cause you gotta see these!

Here are the details, happy gifting and gacha-ing!

Windsong

Snapshot_002Hi there Fabulous Readers :)  I am just packing up to go on a little summer trip, but wanted to  make sure I stopped in here on the blog to tell you about a couple of free group gifts that I found recently that I was excited about!

FA Creations put out their new group gift for July, and as always has a free group join!  The free group gift for this month is the Windsong Outfit as shown that includes the mesh top and matching maxi skirt.  The top comes in classic mesh sizing as well as fitmesh, Maitreya and Belleza.  The skirt comes in mesh sizes XXS-L.  Alpha layers are included for both.

The Ruth Leather Backpack is also a free group gift and can be found at Addams (also with a free group join.).  It was recently released as an addition to their group gifts along with a back version of the pack and also a pair of leather gloves.

Take care kittens!  I’ll be back in a week:)

Short and Sweet

Heyya FabFree!

Short and Sweet

I’ve got a quickie for y’all tonight. Quick but sweet! Sweet Tea Couture has this gorgeous bustier top set out for the MidSummer Night’s Dream Hunt for just one little Linden. This is the ‘Wake Forest’ top and it comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and a ton of appliers. You get Maitreya, SLink Hourglass and Physique, Belleza Isis, Freya and Venus, and the Mesh Project. Like everything from Sweet Tea Couture, the Wake Forest is beautifully built and beautifully textured.

I needed something special to show off the neckline of my new top so I headed to the Luminesse Cart at the Bi Annual Cart Sale at the Wash. Ms Astrid showed us the ‘Sleeping cherub’ pendant from Luminesse here first. But the Cart has so many pretty things I had to have the ‘Ornamental Beauty’ necklace and earrings set in fern green and gold for my own. The necklace is fully resizable via script to get your perfect fit.

The MidSummer Night’s dream Hunt runs until July 21st but the Cart Sale ends on July 6th, so don’t delay!

I have a couple of lucky finds for you this Saturday morning! And both are FREE!

First, stop by EvelineInTheBox and pick up this pretty FREE group gift that has been set out for all of us to enjoy. The group is FREE to join. This pretty camisk comes in all the standard sizes and has a pretty hem with geometric flowers along the edge to give it a little flair. It’s more of a roleplay item than a modern clothing item, but you could pair it with jeans or shorts to make it a cute top if you wanted!

This week’s Lucky Dip at PA Designe is a cute heart padlock choker shown with a close-up in the picture below. You won’t need the group or to spend a single linden — you’ll just need some luck! Take a dip, and see if you win! It’s FREE if you are the lucky dipper!

Water Nymph

Water Nymph
Hi There Fab Free I’ve got a Fabulous find to share with you on this Friday. One of the best things about Fridays in Second Life? Why Fifty Linden Fridays, of course! There are lots of great finds every Friday for just 50 lindens. This Friday has some awesome finds, one of which is this stunningly exotic skin from Plastik. You’ll actually find two Fifty Linden Friday sets at Plastik for 50 lindens each today only. One is an outfit set that includes 2 tops and a skirt. While the outfit is beautiful, I was so taken with the Special Edition skin that I just had to share it with you. This FLF offer is a pack that includes this amazing skin in a male and female version along with every applier Plastik makes for their skins, and of course classic system layers. You’ll also find mesh eyes, makeup layers, and nail appliers for both Slink and Maitreya in the package. I felt like a gorgeous creature in this highly detailed skin, and of course, since it’s summer I wanted to be near the water. Remember, this awesome deal is available today only for Fifty Linden Fridy, run! hehe I also included a copy of the vendor photo for the special FLF skin below so you can see both versions, there’s also a list of all appliers included.

For a little extra detail, I also included this beautiful FREE flower crown I found at Color Me Project from Indulge Temptation. I was hoping to play up the fantasy aspect of the skin from Plastik, and I think this detailed accessory did the job perfectly! This FREE gift is available at the Color Me Project landing point. You’ll need to join the Color Me Project group, which is FREE to Join. With this fabulous gift from Indulge Temptation you’ll get a hud that allows you to size the crown and adjust the color of the metal parts only. Color Me Project’s current round ends July 5th, so don’t wait!

Real Men Wear Pink

Real Men Wear Pink

I decided real men wear pink… or at least tie dye. Or Astrid told me so and I ended up in both somehow. Either way, this applier shirt which is pretty fabulous was FREE, courtesy of Corrupted Designs, and it won’t even cost you a group space. All you need to do is slap the Midnight Mania board. It locks down at only 25 slaps, so hurry if you want this shirt. The gift includes both slink and omega appliers (there are no system layers, sorry fellas), and as far as I can tell would work as a unisex top, but is really geared more toward the male audience.

Real Men Wear Pink 2

My bracelet is a FREE to all gift I picked up at Glint Jewelry. This one *is* unisex as there is both a male and female bracelet in the box. No group is needed, just buy the gift for 0L at the main-store. It is being given in remembrance of the victims and survivors at Orlando.

These Boots Were Made for Walking

These Boots Were Made for Walking

These boots were made for walking! And for FREE too! You’ll want these boots too! All you need to do is slap the Midnight Mania board at ECRU and these fitmesh thigh high boots can be yours! The board locks down at 250 slaps and at midnight the prize will be delivered. In the package is two colors: rose (shown) and crimson (not shown); as well as fits for Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. They also include an alpha if you need it.

I paired my snazzy new boots with a 10L dress from Entice at the Cart Wash Sale. This is “Love Me Harder.” It also comes with a jacket, which I left off, but the jacket is equally cute and sexy. Love Me Harder comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

Don’t forget about Ecco‘s temporary store closing tonight! I’m sporting a past group gift — these beautiful pearls, as a reminder. Plus, everything in the store is 75L. The store will close temporarily sometime this evening though before reopening later at its new location. Don’t miss your chance at some great deals!

A Daisy’ll Do It

A Daisy'll Do It

Are you still checking out all the great deals at the Cart Wash Sale? I stopped by this morning and picked up this really beautiful business style dress from Rowena’s Design’s Cart called Tara for only 10L. It is all one piece for easy fitting with a pencil skirt and a plunging style cuffed neckline in a sublime pink and burgundy color.

This dress comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh sizes, and you’ll also get Maitreya, Physique, and Belleza too! For just 10L more you can pick up the matching heels which I am showing you in the picture above as well.:)

A Daisy'll Do It 2

I paired my dress and heels with the July group gift from Ecco Jewelry, which has been set out early due to the store’s temporary closing (emphasis on temporary). The Store will be closing down temporarily sometime the evening of June 29th. If you are a member of the group, don’t leave, the store will be back!

Be sure to stop by and get all the past group gifts as well as this beautiful Daisies set which is a necklace and matching set of bracelets. (It comes with a color change hud offering 4 different stone colors and 3 metal colors.) Once the store temporarily closes, don’t stress if you miss the July gift. The creator has announced that she will be placing the gift into group notices so that members will have access.

In the meantime, everything in the store is on sale for only 75L… so if you want to get in on some deals, hurry down before the evening of the 29th and you’ll be able to get some top quality jewelry for very good prices. Remember, there are also FREE 2 lucky boards (no group required) and 1 group exclusive lucky board out as well. The group fee is 200L but if you hurry, you’ll have access to MANY MANY past group gifts to fill your inventory with… and I’m sure many future gifts as well, as the creator has emphasized that this is just a temporary closing.

Flowers & Paws

Flowers and Paws

Evening FabFree! It’s been a busy weekend for me, but I dropped in to share some special treats with you… a little bit here… a little bit there! It all adds up to something colorful!

This round of Hairology wraps up June 30th, so if you haven’t stopped by to get all the FREE SLB13 cake gifts, you should hurry. Tonight, I’m showing you the gift from Iconic. It is a high and sleek, mesh pony tail that is really stylish. It’s a full fatpack of colors, so don’t miss out.

My mesh LBGT Pride shirt by GetDressed is a lucky 9L find on the marketplace. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and its own alpha if you are using a standard system body. I liked the loose fit and the unique texture on the material of the traditional tank top cut.

My pretty manicure will only set you back 10L at the Cart Wash Sale. You still have time to get in on the goods at the Cart Wash! This manicure is by New.Monday and called “Flower Power”. It features flowers on your nails. For just 10L you get 3 colors for Slink nails. There are a couple of other pretty manicure sets out that you’ll want to check out!

Flowers and Paws 2

I also picked up my Pride paws body paint at the Cart Wash Sale courtesy of the same Cart. New.Monday has set out the Pride Paws in either a top or bottom layer for just 10L each. So if you want only one or you want both, it’s up to you! You have the flexibility! This body paint is system layer only, but definitely worth rocking you system body for!

My shorts are another great find at the Cart Wash Sale (I told you I was giving you the goods this evening!). You’ll find this great pair of high waist shorts at the Vicarious Youth Cart for just 10L. They come in distressed Denim. I found that they ran a little on the small side, so I did have to wear a larger-than-my-usual size, but they are still a great fit!

Crossbones

Snapshot_001

Good morning, FabFree! I’m feeling my Gothic side this morning, and I have just the FREE goodies to help you feel your Gothic side too! We going to make a two different stops and put together a fun FREE outfit.

First, head to Kreepshow Kouture, and slap the two Midnight Mania Boards. Both of them are FREE and do not require a group. It only takes 50 slaps to lock these babies down, and from what I saw yesterday, they lock down multiple times a day (unless that has changed since then). I’m showing you the Crossbone Cami, which is one of the two prizes you can win when the boards lock down.

Once you win the Cami, unboxing this jumper is quite a treat. It comes in all the standard fitmesh sizes, as well as Maitreya, and Slink and its own alpha is included as well.

Snapshot 4_001

My FREE Septum piercing is courtesy of Krova and is an SLB13 gift at We❤ RP. It was quite large when I put it on, making me believe it was intended for male avatars (it was also silver) but I happily discovered that it was modifiable. To get the look I wanted, I sized it down with some editing, added a gold tint to it, made it full bright to give it a bit of a “sheen” and voila! You may wish to make it other colors!

My necklace is yet another SLB13 gift FREE from We❤ RP… this time from Souzou Eien. This lacy Renaissance Pearls necklace added a feminine touch to my Gothic attire that I thought was just perfect. 😉
