MakeOver Monday part 4

Hello hello, Fab Free! It’s that time again… MakeOver Monday! And we’ve come so far! Two full avatars for exactly ZERO lindens. And I really had to grit my teeth a few times. I’m so weak when it comes to having that “perfect’ (To me anyway) look. I really fret over poor Alistar’s hair. And I’m still looking for something better for him. I swear, if I ever become a designer or builder… I will have good free stuff for the guys. But anyway…

Let’s jump in here. SO, we have bento bodies, Mesh heads, Animation Overrides, and hair. All we need now is clothes. I don’t want to dwell on the clothing part since that’s basically what we do here at the Blog everyday. But I do want to mention a few places, I’ve found very helpful.

First is R&R Swag and their “Rookie Alley” . This is a very nice selection of things for both male and female avatars under 30 days. This outfit is a bit of a mix and match from the Rookie Alley and the past group gifts.

Alistar’s second outfit is a second set of jeans from R&R Swag’s Rookie Alley and a group gift from Asteroidbox for the L’Homme group.  L’Homme is one of the hands down best groups to join if you are looking for male clothes and accessories. The group is free to join, the designers are top notch and you have three -ish months to pick the gifts up. I highly recommend it. 

Last is a current gift for one of our own FabFree Group designers – MaxMagic. They are offering this great Trekkie hoodie for both men and women. I do love geeky stuff!

Kerydwyn’s clothes are much easier to find, go figure. But I still want to show a few choices for our newbs. The first is from BoHo Soul one of our FabFree Group designers. This is the “Impish” outfit which comes with top, pants and shoes. Which is awesome because free good shoes are hard to find. 

The second outfit is from the Cozy Fest event. This event is a bonanza for free gifts from real quality designers. Plus, for new folks… it’s just about everything you can ask for. The group is free to join and each booth has a free gift! Kerydwyn is showing the ‘Maggs’ top from Apple Blossom and the ‘Natasha’ leggings from 1313 Mockingbird lane. These events are great places to “shop” for designers landmarks as well. If you like the gift or what you see in the booth… check out their main store. They may have a free group or other gifts there. Also,

The boots in the second picture are another totally free gift from Body Cult the Marketplace. Digging through the MP can be frustrating… but worth it.

 

Okay that’s it for today cause it’s late and I’m tired and cranky today. ;P  But I think we have covered some ground. Our new kids are looking like real stars on the Grid now.  Take a look at a side by side!

Wow! And remember we spent exactly… ZERO monies! 

SO… next week I will talk about housing and inventory. Or “Now I got clothes… where do I unpack ’em without putting on a free show?”

Shopping Day @ Key Style, Ysoral, & Something New!

Fabulous Sunday Finds!

Sundays used to be “shopping day” in SL. Oh, who am I kidding? Every day is shopping day in SL!! But, back in the times of old, my friends and I would gather together at someone’s land and rez out our pose stands for an unpacking party. We’d be brutally honest about the good, bad, and ugly. Sadly, all of my pals have dropped off the grid over the years, but I still hold true to this Sunday tradition.

I am a huge fan of weekly events, and I am pretty certain I belong to all of them: Fifty Linden Friday, Hello Tuesday, Secret Sale Sunday, Glorious Days, 60L Saturday…the list goes on and on. The perk is that you can find great deals but the downside is you have to be quick and hope it’s RL payday before the day or weekend kicks off.

One perk to all weekly sales has been finding new designers and new groups with awesome gifts (again, remind me to ask LL for more group space!). I decide to love a designer based on what they put up for sale on those special weekly events. Are they tossing up their old designs circa 2013 or are they putting up fresh new styles to lure me in?

Today’s outfit is inspired by Glorious Days and Secret Sale Sundays. While these deals might not be there when you get there, they showcase the kinds of items these designers put out. I also poked around at the group gifts to see if the cost was worth it, and determined if there were other elements I liked about the designer’s work. Both events require free group membership, and Secret Sale Sundays requires the use of a transportation HUD.

There were a lot of hot deals to sort through today, and I couldn’t decide which designers to feature! Some Sundays are “meh” but today was a treasure trove. Through Secret Sale Sundays, I found this adorable short set from a shop I never heard of before…Key Style Store! I chose to blog this one because it proves the point of finding new designers through the weekly events. The Marigio outfit has three pieces with a 6 color HUD so you can mix and match. It also includes white sandals which match the whole outfit no matter what colors you pick. Check out the listing below for sizes. You don’t need to be a member of the Group to get the Secret Sale Sundays pricing, but at an affordable L50, you will have access to some really sweet new threads designed for VIPs.

In the Glorious Days event, I found a pretty bracelet to match this outfit at another designer I never knew about: Ysoral. The Luxe Bracelet Alex comes with a HUD where you can customize each part of the bracelet and correct the sizing. This was L1 if you were a member of the Glorious Days group.

Ysoral Bracelet

 

The prop set was also coveted through a listing on Glorious Days. The Cowgirl Saloon Booth was L50 and the cowgirl pose set was L60. While I’ve been to Something New a million times in the past 15 years, I don’t think I realized how awesome their group gifts were. The group is free, and right now there is a sexy couples pose and a delightful single pose with mirrors. The LM will take you the main portal for the land, but there is a TP board right there to click to get over to the store.

Overall, I had an epic Sunday full of great deals and surprises. If you want to come hang at my place, we can spend the next seven hours unpacking boxes!

Nice and Cozy!

cozyfest_004

Hey gang!

Hope you are all staying warm and enjoying some cozy time during this frigid (where I am anyway!) January!

Like the other ladies, I too have been stalking Cozyfest and seen all the gorgeousness there.  I brought something to show you from there too, this is a 50L find from Asteria, this sexy little number felt perfect with Valentine’s day coming up so quickly, so I grabbed it.  The pieces are mix and match and each part is separate and 50L each (bra, panties and shirt), including a HUD with ten coordinating colors for each too.  This set fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Reborn

Now maybe the other girls are good getting cozy on their own, but I love a little four legged baby to snuggle up to.  This cutie is from Foxwood and the set of Doodle pups is on sale right now for 75L.  Not sure how long it will be on for, so I would hurry if you want to grab a little sweet pup!  They are truly adorable.

my mother told me son let it be

my mother told me son let it be

Good evening, Fab Readers.  Finding good quality men’s wear and accessories here on the Grid is often a trial and can be very frustrating. Honestly, I think if I have to see one more hoodie… Never mind, I digress. When the morass of “not affordable” or “mundane” men’s wear gets me down, I retreat to my stand by favorites. Places with quality work and generous groups. One such place is R&R Swag. They can always be counted on for excellent group gifts and other affordable options. Plus, the designers are rather charming and very friendly.

I found recently that the prizes on the Lucky Chairs in the main store have been updated and I was delighted to see that my initial had popped up as well. I didn’t hesitate to grab this full outfit ; The Blade Biker Outfit. The complete outfit includes the jacket, with and without the tee shirt, the jeans and the boots. All impeccably built and perfect for casual days or nights. The outfit is designer exclusively for the Signature Gianni but I found it looked just as smashing on my Belleza Jake. As Julianna would say, “Your mileage may vary.” Even if this look doesn’t suit you, R&R Swag has many other past group gifts available as well as other outfits loaded into the Lucky Chairs. The Group is free to join as well.

Sizes Included

  • Signature Gianni

Asher

Hello and Happy Friday, FabFree. As I am sure you are aware, the weekend is upon us and I for one am quite glad to see it’s arrival. Not only does the weekend bring some well deserved rest and relaxation, it brings a slew of sales and events with it. And the men haven’t been excluded today.

For example, Finer Threads is participating in the Happy Weekend Sale and are offering this refreshing change from the morass of sweats and snapbacks. This is the “Asher” suit in black and it was a mere 60L as part of the sale. The set is all one piece however you as receive a HUD to change the color of the suit jacket and inner shirt.  I found a bit of mixing and matching fit me well today with shades of black and blue. The Asher comes in several other colors all for the same 60L price if the black doesn’t suit your taste. And since the sale is a “Weekend” offering, I imagine that Asher will go back to the rack for it’s regular price on Sunday evening. So make some haste if you want to pick it up for this special sale.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Legacy
  • Signature Gianni

In the houses of the old gods

In the houses of the old gods

Hilsener, FabFree!  Modern Norwegian may not be Old Norse but it sure sounds cool. And it fits right in with my Norse inspired mood today. Of course it’s 25L Tuesday too and there just happens to be two perfect additions to my Viking attire.

First, my dress. This is “Skadi” from Mansken. You get the bodice with the beautiful runic designs on it and the attached skirt which can be one of  six colors. This is going to be perfect for one of my RPs and I can’t wait to show it off!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Next is my new necklace. The “Protection” necklace is from Angelicus. It comes sized for men but it’s easily resized to fit just about anyone. Angelicus has two other women specific necklaces for the sale as well.

As with all 25L Tuesday goodies, some designers leave them up for a bit and some disappear the second the clock strikes midnight tonight. So if you need to ‘go aviking’  hurry over!

Dude, Where’s My Horse??

ANgel Pink $30L Sat Chloe Jaguar

Whoooaaa! I was out riding the GI ranges this morning checking the fence lines. I popped off my trusty steed to check a suspicious hole and the dang horse ran off!! Now I have to clomp around in the snow & muck to locate him.

Just a Jaguar Cowgirl

What’s a girl to do when she wakes up Saturday morning and sees a cowgirl outfit on sale?  Especially when it comes in 3 different bright prints. You give a YEEHAWWW along with a yelping squeeee and run to grab it at Angel Pink. This is an entire outfit: dress, boots, and hat. There are 3 different textured dresses and each is $35L. I’m not sure why this item is listed in the $30L Saturday sale when it’s priced at $35L but I won’t quibble over $5L. This is such a great deal.

You’ll the sexiest cowgirl boss in the land wearing this dress full of cutouts, little ties, & a belt. Imo, this would flatter anyone’s figure.

Sizes

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Slink HG

Hope your weekend is FAB!

The PINK Season is coming

The Pink Season is coming

Hey there, Fab Free! Can you believe the week is nearly over??? Another day and it’s the weekend already! I guess it’s a good thing but dang! Anyway, time and January is apparently going to speed by and before we know it it’ll be hearts and kisses and PINK everywhere. 

I guess I have some pink on the brain cause when I tried on this latest Fabulously Free Group Gift from MOoh I had to have the pink shirt instead of any of the other colors. So, this is the “Mariah” outfit and it’s the gift I’m talking about. You can pick it up for free when you wear your free FabFree Group tag and slap that board. Mariah comes with the jacket/shirt combo and the skirt as separates which is always nice. The denim part has a HUD for two colors: blue and black while the HUD has seven solid colors and five stripy colors for the shirt. I still am enjoying my Winter but this might have me thinking about Spring.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XXS – L
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
