It’s Just So Cute!

Island Breeze

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post from me to share a casual “take it easy” day outfit.  And boy, after the past day in RL, I sure need it!  I had recently purchased a new car after driving the same one for 12 years.  I have had it for 2 weeks, and someone hit it in the parking lot, leaving quite a bit of damage, and no note to claim responsibility.  What a bummer!  At least I could escape to this spectacular island in SL, and chill in my new jumpsuit.  The best part (since I now have to pay my insurance deductible – ouch!) is the outfit was completely free!

Another Dumpster Diving Find

In my last post, I shared a date night outfit with a coordinating men’s suit (it’s here if you missed it).  Stan and I picked them up as part of the Dumpster Diving Hunt that is running until August 31st.  Since we had such great luck at our first stop, Ripley and I decided to continue on down the trail.  At Fukin Cute, we quickly discovered the mini dumpster concealed in the shop and I excitedly teleported home to open the free package.  Nestled inside, the sporty Kardashi jumpsuit promised relaxation and comfort.  With its semi sheer tank style top, gathered waist, and long sleek pants, this little number will have you decked out in style.  The designer even included a HUD that allows you to alter the color of the eye catching stripes that run the entire length of the suit.  I opted for the purple combo, but you have 5 other choices if purple and pink is not your cup of tea.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy hunting!

A Sprinkling of Gold Dust

Gold Dust

Hello Fabulous Readers!  While checking out the Dumpster Diving Hunt with Ripley, I picked up a really cute mini dress perfect for a date night, and happened to notice there was a male prize in the shop as well.  So, I woke Stan up from his early evening nap, and led him over to Mishmash Fusion.  It’s hard to believe we found such classy clothes dumpster diving, isn’t it?

Hers

I am modeling the strappy Starseed Mini Dress in the color Star Dust.  This little number will hug your curves, but has a skirt with enough fullness to make moving around a snap.  There is a “v” shaped notch in the hemline which adds visual interest.  I really, really like the spattering of golden glitter on the outside edges of the frock!  In the back, the top of the dress sits just below your shoulder blades.  Best of all, items in the Dumpster Diving Hunt are completely free, so all it cost was a bit of time searching around.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

His

Stan is sporting the coordinating Etienne Suit (also free from Mishmash Fusion).  It features a black jacket, a button down shirt complete with a black tie, creased trousers, and a stardust sprinkled vest, which complements my dress beautifully.  The outfit is an all-in-one, so you can’t wear the individual components separately, but I think Stan looks quite dashing!  Versions for classic avatars as well as popular mesh bodies are tucked inside the package, so there’s something for everyone in here.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Gianni
  • Jake
  • Slink
  • TMP

We are off to see what else we can uncover in the Dumpster Diving Hunt.  Since it runs until August 31st, we still have plenty of time.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Every day you find ways to drive me crazy

Every day you find ways to drive me crazy

Look, another amazing FabFree group gift! And a great belly chain from one of my favorite stores!

Monomania

This hot little free outfit is from Monomania. It’s an itty bitty skirt and super cropped shirt and I love everything about them. It’s pretty, feminine, and super sexy all at the same time. There’s just so much great contrast – from the full sleeve on one side and the other arm bare, to a floral girly pattern cropped within an inch of decency. It’s got that perfect yin and yang thing going on and I like it. The skirt and top are separate pieces and each come sized for:

  • Belleza Freya & Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

To get yours, activate your FabFree group tag (or join the group for free) and go give the vendor a click. While you’re there, there are lots of gifts for other groups to snag up, and loooooads of Monomania group gifts as well!

Chain

I thought this body chain from Chain complimented my outfit well. It’s even better underneath the shirt, trust me. Or better yet, just go to Chain and see for yourself. It is on the group gift wall with bunches of other pretty things there, and they’re all free when you join Chain’s group for a 100L fee. It comes in one size, labeled “Maitreya – XS” and includes a HUD that allows it to be changed to different metal colors.

Mesh Head: Catwa Magyfree
Skin Applier: Deetalez Snjezana
Eyes: Avi-Glam Reverie Eyes
Eyelashes Applier: Arte My Lashes
Hair: Wasabi Deanna
Body Chain: CHAIN Taya (0L / free group gift / 100L to join)
Outfit: Monomania Essences Sky (0L / FabFree group gift / free to join)

‘Till now I always got by on my own

'Till now I always got by on my own

I don’t know if this is something that I should admit as a FabFree blogger, but I usually avoid hunts. I have nothing against them – you can get some really fabulous stuff through hunts and I’m sure that they’re fun for some people. But see, the thing is…I am really, really, really horrible at hunting. Really. So bad. I’m impatient and whiny and you won’t like me when I do hunts. So as a general rule, I don’t hunt. But there are always exceptions and so here we are, with me showing you a hunt prize.

The Day I Hunted

I saw this super cute romper on the FabFree group photo pool on Flickr and knew that it needed to be mine. If you haven’t joined our group on Flickr then you really should, people show some really great stuff and you can add your pictures of free stuff too and give me ideas of what to blog! Anyway, how cute is my romper? It is the Dumpster Dive Hunt free prize from Ambient. The texture is really lovely and I love the cute little belt, but my favorite part is the detail along the top edge. Sooooo adorable. There is a hint giver out front and it wasn’t too hard to find. If I can find it, then you can find it! I think every size ever is included, there is:

  • eBody Classic & Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Venus
  • Classic sizes L-XXS

Always Posing

So I don’t always hunt but good luck getting me to stop posing. And when the poses are free? Even better! This cute sit pose is a free gift from K&S at the Dubai event. There are a few other gifts to be found there as well from other stores so be sure to wander around a bit.

 

Allison is wearing…

Mesh Body: Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head: Catwa Magyfree
Skin Applier: Deetalez Snjezana
Eyes: Avi-Glam Reverie Eyes
Eyelashes Applier: Arte My Lashes
Hair: Truth Farryn
Rings and Bracelets: AvaWay Love Bracelets & Rings
Romper: Ambient DDH Marietta Romper (0L / Dumpster Dive Hunt prize)
Shoes: Reign Flip Flops – Glitter Pack

On the Water

Out on the Water
Hey There! Hi There! Hello Fab Free’rs! Sorry it has been a minute since I posted anything. My last intended post was doomed by technical issues. It doesn’t happen often, but it does happen. Still, it’s a shiny new day and I have some awesome 7 Seas Fishing prizes from Sn@tch to share with you. Pru’s entire look from head to toe is made up of fishing prizes you can fish for at Sn@tch. I’ll ad a copy of the advertisement for this cute look from Sn@tch below. It shows other available items not shown in my photo. If you’ve never been “fishing” before, as Love says “If you don’t have a 7 Seas Fishing Rod, they are a 100L one time purchase from the vendor at Sn@tch. Keep the rod, and use it for future prizes too! No bait is required.”

On this fishing excursion at Sn@tch Pru managed to score this shoulder length hairstyle that has some pretty soft romantic curls, the eyelet ruffled top, tropical print mini skirt, and nude flats. There are several versions of each of these items you can “catch” while fishing at Sn@tch. Also, like gachas, these items are transferable so you can trade them!

Skirt & Top Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody, TMP, Standard Mesh, Tonic (Curvy, Fine) ** The skirts have an alpha layer as well, so they are suitable for Classic Avatars. 

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hair – Sn@tch Sunny Hair (BLACK) – Free 7 Seas Fishing Prize

Head –  CATWA HEAD Koura Bento

Skin – Essences – Blake – Currently @Kustom 9

Fab Free Designer Friday – 07/20/2018 – ALB

ALB Exterior
If you’ve never been to ALB (AnaLee Balut) you should go, even if only to see the store. It’s a unique Arabian themed desert oasis. Walking through the store in places is reminiscent of a street bazaar. The main part of the store is several stories, so there’s plenty to explore. At ALB you’ll find mostly ladies clothing, though there is a random mens item here and there. The style at ALB is a little harder to pinpoint! Eclectic is a good word to start with. There is everything from shoes and accessories, to lingerie and ballgowns. You’ll also find fantasy inspired clothing, fashion inspired by history, and even some of what I would call Gorean clothing. As I mentioned, there’s a lot to be had!
ALB Fab Gift
Probably one of the most notable things about the ALB main store is the large camel statue in the center of the main floor. In this same area you’ll quickly be able to spot the ALB gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. This gift is free and exclusive to Fabulously Free in SL group members, so don’t forget to wear your group tag! There are two additional group gifts on the same column as the Fab Free gift. Each requires a separate group tag.ALB Gifts & Wearable Demos

As you browse through the vastness at ALB you’ll note that some items have floating text that may say “group gift” or simply “enjoy” among other things. These items are usually group gifts you can purchase for free while wearing your store group tag. The store group is LAMU and it has a one time join fee of 250 linden. Another unique aspect to shopping at ALB are their “wearable demos.” These items often have floating text as well that will say “demo” or something similar. These wearable demos are often free but sometimes cost between 0 and 10 linden. I spotted both group gifts and wearable demos throughout all the floors of the ALB store. The above photos are of a few but I am certain not all of these gift types just to give you an idea of the genuinely wide range of items. Happy shopping Fab Free, and have a wonderful weekend.

Let the Fairy in You Fly

Keep Calm and Fairy On

Hello Fabulouses!  I’m just flitting in with a sprinkling of pixie dust to turn you into a magical fairy like me.  My entire avatar, from head to toe, is a prize in The World Fairy Hunt, which is going on right now over at Brii Underground.  Hidden throughout the store are 10 complete outfits with clothes, shoes, and accessories – all for just 5 Linden dollars each.  You’ll be searching for a fairy house, and the best part is, they are super easy to find.  In case you get stuck, you can click the sign in the store to pick up a note card with helpful hints.  Although I am showing the tiny fairy avatar, there are plenty of outfits for full sized avis as well – there’s something for everyone in this hunt.

Put on Your Fairy Wings!

The Aguane Fairy Avatar includes a full body alpha, this adorable shape, wings, dress, ribbons and flowers.  You wear the outfit all at once, so you cannot mix and match the clothing items, but I was totally ok with that since the final look is simply magical.  With big blue eyes, the tiniest pointy ears and delicate wings, this outfit will have you ready for role play in an instant.  No pixie dust required, but hey it was fun to toss the glittery stuff around!

What’s Included:

  • Full Alpha
  • Aguane Fairy Avatar Shape
  • Complete outfit which includes skin, eyes, hair and all items worn in picture

Well, I’m off to do some important fairy business.  The first thing on my list is to sprinkle some magical powder onto Ripley so he can fly just like the dog Nana in Peter Pan.  Until next time, happy hunting!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

Let Freedom Ring, Let The White Dove Sing

Let Freedom Ring, Let The White Dove Sing

I love the 4th of July. Besides it being just a few days off from my birthday, it’s also just quintessential summer. The 4th of July means summer and summer means the beach. The beach makes me think of the boardwalk and that special time when it’s just about to get dark and almost time for fireworks. I love fireworks. And fireworks over water? A billion times better. Ah it’s truly the best time of the year.

If you don’t live in the US, this post is still for you too. The free stuff I have to show you is universally awesome, I promise!

Stars and Stripes

I thought I better wear my super cute and festive romper a few days early so that you’d have time to go grab it for the occasion. Just pop over to Elusive, join the free group, and it’s yours as a free gift! You’ll get the romper and a pair of red heels to go with it. The romper comes sized for:

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

Flips and Flops

I knew that I wanted flip flops to round out my look, and was so excited when I found a pair as a group gift at KC Couture. The KC group is only 25L to join and there’s a nice collection of gifts to scoop up for such a small amount of L! Among the free gifts are these great free flip flops. I would have happily paid 4 or 5 times the join price for them alone. The included HUD is full of color options for the strap and bunches of really cute color and pattern options for the bottom as well. There are sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. I know I’l get lots of use out of these great flip flops…when I remember to wear shoes, that is.

Ironics and Peaces?

Sometime picking a naming pattern for my headings is a mistake, but I’m not a quitter, okay? 😜 When I visited The Arcade earlier this month I made a mental note to go back to snap some shots. So yeah, I was the annoying girl obviously taking pictures at an event. BUT it’s almost over so it’s not like I was taking up space and preventing other people from being able to tp in. This great pose I’m using is called Ironic Peace and it is free! It’s available from Pacagaia on the marketplace for 0L. Ger it here. I think it’s the perfect pose (at the perfect price!) in the perfect location.

You Can’t Lose Me

You Can't Lose Me

Hi! Just popping in to show you a cute little bikini and skirt, perfect for all of your bikini and skirt wearing needs. It is sized only for Maitreya bodies. I got it on the marketplace for just 5L! It is also available at Hash Tag’s inworld store as a group gift. The group is 50L to join. I love how the ruffles in the skirt are mimicked along the top as well. It’s just a fun thing to throw on that can be dressed up or down. And you know how I feel about versatility? I’m for it!

Wow, this is the shortest post from me ever! We’ll call it “the one where Allison didn’t ramble” and hold it fondly in our hearts forever. Until next time, laters!
