What You Always Wanted

What you Always Wanted

I always wanted a leather jacket.  Always.  Seems I could never quite find the perfect one, unfortunately.  To me, a black leather jacket is quite literally the most useful item you can have in your wardrobe.  It can give clout and toughness to even the girliest of outfits, which to me is always a nice counterpoint to any sweetness.  Don’t you think?

I am Fashion

I went by IAF today and noted that there are a whole bunch of FREE group gifts just waiting for you to claim them!  Today I’m showing you the Embellished lime bustier which comes as an applier (for both Omega and TMP) as well as system layers.  There are a whole bunch of other cute gifts for you to pick up too while you’re there, just join the free IAF group for free and they’re all yours!

Kisses for the Cart Sale

The Wash Cart Sale is going down right now, and we all know that means deals aplenty!  Love has shown you a few of her finds HERE and HERE, and I picked up my really cute leather jacket by Baci while I was nosing about.  It cost me a mere 25L, but hiding inside the bag you’ll also find some lingerie to go with it!  There are several different versions of this jacket to choose from, but I went with the classic black to match my outfit (it has a bit of hot pink writing on the back, which is pretty cute too!).  Loads to discover over at The Wash sim!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • S – L with an Alpha Layer

Right I need to go pretend to be tough a bit more!

Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ Into the Future

Bonjour

Bonjour, Fabulouses!  Real life has been super hectic lately.  It seems like it was just Friday and now all of a sudden it’s Wednesday!  Time is flying by.  I hope your week is going well.  Speaking of flying, I’m pedaling out to do some more hunting, but wanted to quickly share this outfit with you.  The pieces are separates, but to my eyes, they look like they were made to go together.  The best part is, my clothes only cost one little Linden dollar!

Think Pink

This adorable Bimi halter-style top in a bright raspberry hue is a free gift from Baby Monkey for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Featuring a high neckline and and a low cut back, this little number is ideal for those sultry late spring days ahead.   I really like the folds in the fabric and the way it hugs your curves and allows you to soak up the sun.  It is designed for a variety of mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate your Fab Free group tag, right click on the board and pay 1L, which will immediately be refunded to you along with the delivery of your gift.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

A Little Bit Boho

Ripley and I ventured along the trail of The Boho Hunt recently.  There are 34 stops along the way with prizes that cost 1 Linden dollar each.  Over at Horr Menswear, if you find the tiny white llama concealed in the shop, you can scoop up these cute little blue Monetta shorts for yourself.  They ride low on your hips and are packed with details such as rivets on the pockets and a bright pink wraparound belt, which coordinates beautifully with the Bimi crop top.  There’s something in this hunt prize for everyone, because versions for classic as well as mesh bodies are tucked inside the package.  The shorts are actually from Ambient Fashion, but they are hidden in Horr Menswear for the hunt.  The event runs until March 31, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing for yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Two if By Sea


Two if by Sea

Captain’s Log: The Nineteenth of March, Year Unknown
My Co-Captain and I set sail for an uncharted destination just a few days ago. Today, for the first time, we found land. Our steam ship ran aground in an unfamiliar location. Where, or even when our time travels have brought us, we cannot be certain. All that is certain is that we found our adventure, and we look absolutely smashing while doing so.

Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I promise you haven’t stumbled over a strange steam punk novella. I was just having a little fun with some of the fantastic Seam Hunt prizes my guy and I gathered. His hat, and our amazing jackets are free Seam Hunt prizes. In addition to the hunt freebies, I picked up an incredibly detailed free steam paddle boat that was just too cool to not share with you. I hope you enjoy these fabulous finds, and maybe even go on an adventure or two of your own.

The Hat – I think bowler style hats are really cool for steam punk attire. This particular Steam Hunt gift hat by Miss Darcy has some extra steamy details, both literally and figuratively. This cool hat has a “steam” effect that comes from the wheel handle on top of the hat when worn, not to mention the goggles which complete the look. You have until March 31st to hunt down the little brown cog and claim your free gift.

The Coat – I still cannot get over the gorgeous details of these tailcoats by Contraption. This coat comes in male and female mesh sizes, and includes a cummerbund applier, as well as a system layer cummerbund. Additionally there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the ascot/scarf and the little pin in the center of the scarf. Lastly, each of the sizes has an additional “bound” option for a corseted look. The best part is that this highly detailed piece is Contraption’s free Steam Hunt prize.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Slink Male, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake

The Spirit of Adventure

The Steam Paddle Boat – Believe it or not this ultra cool vessel is not only completely free, it has full permissions. I stumbled across this awesome freebie while exploring sims. This free boat can be found at the Alpha Tribe sim. Simply pay the boat 0 linden and you’ll find a copy of it in the objects folder of your inventory. Along with being cool to look at, this steam paddle boat has some animated parts, and 2 sit poses. There is a single pose at the steering wheel, and one up top at the organ. Lastly, since this freebie has full permissions, you can customize it however you like.

P.S. If you dig Blue’s waxed mustache, it’s a freebie too! You can pick it up for free at Kauna. Afterall, dapper gentleman would be complete without one.

Here are the details, may you have happy adventures!

Hunting at Ostara


Ostara 2

Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! Thank you as always for being here. The Ostara’s Altar event just recently started, and part of the event includes a 5 linden hunt. Each of the shops has an Ostara Hunt egg hidden somewhere on the event grounds. The term hidden should be used loosely though, considering many of the shops have placed their egg within plain sight. A few shops also have multiple hunt prizes. Each of these hunt gifts will cost you a mere 5 linden. For this post I picked out three of the many prizes to share with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Floral Headband – There’s something inherently springtime about flowers in your hair. Since Ostara is in spring, this floral headband by Oubliette makes the perfect accessory. It’s their 5L hunt item at the Ostara’s Altar event. There are no scripts, so it’s also low-lag, and it’s mod so it can be manually sized.

Nose Stud – The little spiked nose-stud Pru is wearing is another 5L Ostara’s Altar hunt prize. This one is by Neverwish, and it comes with a silver version, and the “galaxy” version that is shown. This piercing also appears to be free of scripts and can be manually sized.

Earrings – I love the delicate look of these gold earrings by PKC which stands for Purrrrfect Kitties Creations. They too are another of the many 5 linden Ostara’s Altar hunt prizes. These earrings do have resize scripts that allow you to custom fit them. The script even includes a poser to help your avatar stand still without the need of a pose stand.

Here are the details:

Headband – Oubliette– Flora Headband – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Hair – TRUTH VIP Joy – Past VIP Group Gift *Originally Blogged Here 
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Earrings – Purrrrfect Kitties Creations – Jojo Earrings – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Nose Stud – Neverwish – *NW* Nose Spike – Galaxy and Silver – 5L Hunt Prize @Ostara’s Altar
Tattoo – The Ivory Rose – I&R moth & moon tattoo
Dress – Oubliette– Mystic Flora Dress – Currently @Ostara’s Altar

Feels Like Summertime


I have no idea what to call this.

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Happy Saturday. In my post today I want to share with you the March group gift at PumeC and the Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Posh Tale. The combination of the two really made me daydream about warmer weather. I hope you like them both as much as I do.

The Skin – The March group gift at PumeC is a full skin with Genus head and body appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega  in all skin tones. This gorgeous gift also includes body only base skins in each tone, a default shape, and brow shaper. For me the best part o Free f this skin is the summery freckles across the forehead, cheeks, and nose. The PumeC group has a one-time join fee of 399 linden and there are several previous group gifts still available. Below is a copy of the vendor ad so you can peep the six skin tones and get a better look at those lovely freckles.
March group gift #1

The Top – This low-cut, draped halter style top is the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Posh Tale. It’s the perfect warm weather top. Included with this fitted mesh top is a color change hud with 12 solid color options to choose from. There’s also an alpha layer so the top can be worn by classic non-mesh avatars as well. To get your copy, head to the group gift area of the Posh Tale store and click the gift vendor. Don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag!

The Oracle


The Oracle

Hello Fab Free! I’m so glad you’re here. This look I came up with for Pru reminded me of an Oracle like the ones in stories about ancient Rome. Maybe it’s the fiery eyes, or the detailed pendant. Both items are free gifts at the Summoning Spring Fair. I used several gifts from the Summoning Spring Fair to create this unique look. I hope you enjoy them.

The Hair – As I mentioned there are lots of free gifts to be had at the Summoning Spring Fair. CHARME happens to have 2 gifts. This swing-bob style hair is their free gift, and if you pick up both of the CHARME gifts you’ll get the hairstyle with 4 total color change huds. This free hairstyle also has a unique feature that lets your color/texture the top strands of the hair separately from the rest to give the style a lot of dimension and tons of color combinations.

The Tattoo – This mandala-like forehead tattoo is the Summoning Spring Fair gift from Fallen Gods. It comes in classic system layers along with an Omega applier. That means this freebie is suitable for mesh (Omega compatible) avatars and classic non mesh avatars. Not to mention with all the color choices, you could wear it with anything!

The Eyes – I think these intense eyes by Cubic Cherry might be my favorite of the free gifts at the Summoning Spring Fair. They come in several vibrant colors. This git set includes a pair of mesh eyes, a matching alpha layer, an optional shadow add-on for extra detail, a texture change hud, and an Omega applier hud for Omega compatible eyes.

The Necklace – Finally, this beautiful necklace is by On a Lark, and is also a free gift at the Summoning Spring Fair. I would consider this item to be unisex. It comes with a texture change hud that lets you pick from several preset options for the shiny stone, and 3 metal choices for the chain and setting.

Here are the details!

As some of you may know, I am an opinionated sort of person. I have little issue expounding on most any subject, especially when I have strong feelings on such subject. That said, Julianna threated to lock me in a closet if I made my true feelings about most of the free offerings for the men of Second Life. So let me merely say, Thank You, Contraption. Thank you for going above and beyond for the men of L’Homme with this gift.

Not Just Another Ball Cap

This is the Jasper Waistcoat and shirt and it’s the completely free gift for the L’Homme reader’s Group. I am genuinely impressed with the style and the attention to details in this piece. The Jasper Waistcoat is offered in store in several other colors at a reasonable cost. And you may be inclined to indulge. Yet, Contraption has given us a superb piece, in a color we want. It’s a high quality gift and I for one am very happy with it.

The waistcoat will look best with high waisted pants, especially if you are going for a clean cut Steam or authentic Victorian look. Contraption has also included a cummerbund applier HUDs for Belleza, Miatreya, Omega and Signature.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • SLink

A quick note – Contraption has included some Female sizes for the waistcoat. The breast sliders will not work for the more well endowed and the piece has not been actually configured for women.  This is part of the note from the designer – We’ve only included female sizes for those who would like to pull off a certain look for our own friends.

Hello There! Welcome back to the blog! Is it too early for the beach? Maybe. I suppose it depends on where you are in the world. Here in Second Life we get to be beachy anytime. This cute little pup and I are out living our best lives right here in SL where the sun always shines. Speaking of this adorable doggie, she’s part of a free gift by Eniipose at The Free Dove. Additionally, Pru’s outfit is a freebie by Sn@tch, also available at The Free Dove. Keep reading for all the info.

Pose and Props – I think French bulldogs are my favorite of the bulldog breeds, and this little pup with her red bow and sunglasses is the cutest of the cute. She is part of the free gift by Eniipose at The Free Dove. The gift also includes the cell phone with the matching bulldog case, and a hairbow for you to wear (not shown), and of course the pose.

Hi hi Fab Free’rs! I’ve been fishing! Of course I mean 7Seas Fishing at Sn@tch. Their current “Fish 4 This” outfit was just too cute to pass up. Not to mention the fact that you can score a full head to toe look with different color choices for several of the pieces. Also, there are options that make this look suitable for Classic avatars. The following blurb is a quick “how-to” for those new to 7Seas Fishing. I’ve posted it before, but figured I’d post it again just incase someone needed the information. If you’ve already figured the fishing thing out, just skip that part.

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

“That Magical Night” Outfit 

Like most of the Fish4This outfits at Sn@tch, this one includes everything you see in the photo, just about. These items are all free, as long as you have your 7Seas Fishing Rod. There are 21 total pieces, including the top with bra in an Omega applier, and system layers, 6 mesh skirts, the black tights in Omega appliers, mesh boots (alpha layer and shoe base fished separately), jewelry, and the hairstyle shown in 3 colors. Also, each of the mesh skirts come with the following size options: Standard Mesh, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Fine, Curvy), and EBody.

Here are the details!
