Spring Pink

Spring Pink

Hey FabFree! I know it’s just a bit early, but S@bbia has me thinking about Spring. Their latest Group Gift is something I’d totally wear in the real world and it’d be perfect for Spring.

My cute pink sneaks are a group gift as well. The “laceless slip on sneakers’ are just the perfect pink to go with my new Spring gear.  As with all Group Gifts, they may not stick around long so hurry over to S@bbia and pick ’em up!

Reach for the Stars

spring air_020

I felt your eyes upon me and a stirring in my Soul
I watched the current rise and tide turn for another shore…
A river finds it’s ocean, the light brings darkness to its knees
All that we’ve forgotten and all that we were meant to be…
We are like stars, stars in the sky
The darker this night, the brighter we will shine.

Stars – David Newman

Hey Fab Fam!

A little bit of lyrics from one of my favorite songs.  I’ve been in a funk the last week or so, though I am such an introvert, the pandemic is starting to affect me as well.  It’s a tough feeling to explain, like everything, even things I love to do, right now they all just feel like… meh.  You know?  So many friends I talk to are also feeling this way.  Picture dementors closing in, like there is nothing happy in the world, that’s the feeling.  Perhaps I just need a big old pile of chocolate.  (not like I need an excuse for that  lol)  But since I am trying to be good and *not* eat a pile of chocolate, I try to focus on some positive music, songs that just envelop me in love like a big hug, and of course…. keep reaching for the stars!

So for anyone else who is feeling this way, lets all just close in for a big virtual group hug!  Virtual group hug=no covid so we can have as many as we want and need.  Come on, scooch in… don’t be shy… everyone gather round, ok, ready!  BIG GROUP HUG annnnnnnnd SQUEEZE!!!!!!  Ahhhhh doesn’t that feel better?  You are not alone!  Yeah I need to remember this too.

So today gang, as I reach for those stars (Thanks to Fluffy Stuff for providing us with little pastel twinkly stars for our in world), I’m looking fashionable in this very pretty free group gift from Look at Me.  Group is free to join as well which makes this top and pants absolutely free!  This outfit comes in:

  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Keep reaching for those stars fab fam, if we collect enough we can create brighter days!

Let’s Go

Let's Go

I was talking to one of my friends who lives on another continent.  She was telling  me about how the snowdrops are pushing their heads through the snow – a sure sign that winter was relenting.  Unfortunately, winter has a tendency to not relent in my part of the world.  We Canadians get used to having Winter last until at least April…so let’s bundle up!

Warmth for One Linden

This awesome outfit comes courtesy of Monomania and it costs only 1L!  It comes complete with the jacket, jeans, shoes (sized for Slink, Legacy, Maitreya, Belleza and Tonic), and shirt.  It comes with an HUD to change to 6 different colours too.  No need to join a group, just pay 1L to the vendor you’ll find just to the left of the main counter of the store.  Doesn’t get much easier (or toasty) than this!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Keep cozy!

Fashion Forward

Snapshot_022

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.”

Gianni Versace

Hello again my fab free fam!

How do you decide what to wear?  Do you try to fit in and wear things that other people wear, or approve of, or do you do your own thing?  Do you dress according to mood?  Or maybe you have a system that helps you decide?

Me, I’ve always done my own thing, both in sl and rl.  It hasn’t always been the easiest to deal with (rl!) but I don’t have the ability to be anything but myself.  I’m very VERY bad at faking it.  What you see is what you get folks!  Now, in sl, we have a LOT more fashion choices than in rl.  I mean gosh I could NEVER fit all my sl clothing into my rl closet!  Nor would it all look as stunning on me as it does on my lovely sl avatar.  However, my choices are the same.  As I’ve said before, I feel like a sort of bohemian version of Elle Woods (Legally Blonde), while I was a tomboy most of my life and still mostly am, there is that part of me that lonnnnggggssssss to be girly but isn’t quite sure how to do it!  lol  I lost my mom at an early age and had no other female role models, so I became sort of a guys girl.   Many of my closest rl friends are guys and I find them easier to hang with than other girls, for the most part.  I’m not sure I ever properly learned how to “girl”.  lol  But I digress!  (I go off on side tangents, sorry  lol) My choices in both worlds reflect the bohemian, artsy, PINK-ishness, quirky soul that I am.  I don’t care if its in style, if I love it, I wear it.  Also unicorns.  anything & everything with unicorns.

Respond in comments and tell me what fashion inspires in you and what you love to choose!

As you can see, today I have chosen an adorable complete outfit from Bad Rabbit.  It was a free gift with no group required.  This outfit comes with everything you see here, dress and matching boots.  It has a HUD that gives 5 texture choices for the dress and five matching choices for the boots.  There was a pink choice for it but I chose blue cause I don’t want y’all to get crazy at me!  lol!

The dress comes in:

  • Tonic – Minimizer, Fine, Curvy
  • Star
  • Hourglass
  • Signature
  • Maitreya & Maitreya Petite
  • Kupra – Low, Original, Bimbo
  • Ebpdy – Classic, Curvy
  • Belleza – Isis, Freya
  • Altamura

The boots come in:

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Freya

Since this got to be a rather long-ish post (!!), I shall wrap up here and see you next time lovelies, when I show you a great look for a casual night out!

Cheers to us saving the world, one outfit at a time,

❤ Arielle

Suited

Suited

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. My post today is going to interest our newer members of the Grid because the more experienced among us have surely already taken full advantage of my finds today. I’m speaking of the 1L Shop at Gabriel. Of course, I am a frequent shopper at Gabriel… it’s something abut the name….  At any rate, I wandered to the back of the main store today to see the newly added 50% Discount area. Excellent deals there, by the way… just none I can show on here for75L or less. However, the 1L shop is a delight. The stock is clearly being rotated through and most of what I found was completely new on the 1L shelves.  Like this stunning pinstripe suit I picked out. I do love a good suit. I’ve said it before : Boys have swagger, Men have character… Gentlemen have style.

Also, before I go, I want to offer a hearty welcome to Mr. Korday. Its good to have another gentleman in the mix. Cheers!

Sizes Included

  • One size + Alpha if needed

I call to you great spirit of water
summon the serpent and make his power mine
I bow to the winds and the power of fire
Bring to me, my hearts desire!
Abracadabra, I will create as I speak!

Hey fab gang!

A little bit of magic for your Valentine’s day.  Did you know the word abracadabra is a very powerful word, even though it gets tossed around frivolously (there’s a word I don’t get to use often enough!).  Yup.  It is Arabic for “I will create as I speak”.   This cute outfit from Ewa Boutique made me feel very tribal and magical, so I thought it was time for a wee bit of spell casting!  What keeps popping into my head though are Ursula’s (the sea witch from The Little Mermaid) spell…. “come winds of the Caspian sea!”  Not sure why!  lol

This outfit is a Fab Free gift so wear your tag and head to Ewa’s to scoop it up!  It fits:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

That goes for the whole outfit, top, skirt and shoes!  It also comes with a HUD that has five sets of colors to choose from.  Of course you can always be a rebel and mix and match!  I love the colors and combinations!

Time to whip up a new spell to find more inspiring goodies!  Until next time!

Incense & peppermints!

Oh Where Oh Where has Cupid Gone?

blasphemic_006

Hey fab gang!

I’ve been all over the grid recently helping to look for cupid in the Where’s Cupid Hunt. This is a 1L hunt and runs until Feb 14. While I didn’t actually *find* cupid (there’s still time!), I did find some awesome hunt gifts and have a sneak peek at three of them for you!

Too Sassy for You!

Blasphemic has this cute top in my photo above waiting for you in the hunt.  The saying on the shirt “Too Sassy for you!” resonated with me, brat that I am.  It’s got a pattern of open rips in the back and you can pair it nicely with jeans, short, skirt, anything.  I paired it with these jeans and ready to go! It comes in one size, fitted mesh and I’m wearing it over Maitreya in the picture.  I had no issues.

Never Stop Dreaming

indig_003

This absolutely adorable dress is made by Tazz for Indigenous.  It comes with a HUD giving you a choice of ten gorgeous colors that really pop!  It is definitely a dreamworthy dress!

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Ebody Classic
  • Ebody Curvy
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Lastly but Definitely not Least!

ari pari_005

Lastly I have for you, two hunt prizes.  First this adorable outfit from Ari-Pari, love the springtime colors!  It comes with a HUD that gives you six texture/color choices for each of the top and bottom.

It comes in

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

The cute Valentine-y backdrop is also a hunt prize, it’s from NinaX.  It’s low prim and very pretty.
