Easy Breezy… Webby.

Train Station_001

Easy breezy… webby

I love subscribo gifts… because they just appear in my inventory without any work! Did you notice that the free BYRNE August subscirber gift has appeared in your inventory this month? If you’re not a subscriber or you missed the gift, you can head to the BYRNE main-store, click the subscriber, and get this gift free. This month is the black “Webby” dress and this picture doesn’t do it justice.

This dress is an off the shoulder style that comes to the knees and has a very definite sheen to it in black with a darker black web design across the body of the dress (thus the name).

It comes in sizes for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Isis & Freya

Train Station_002

Never enough

I never have enough hair. I love trying on new styles and I adore hair gifts. I stopped by the Mina main-store (it had been a while!) and was pleased to discover that there was a gift out for Mina VIP group members that I hadn’t yet picked up. Mina generously puts out a monthly group gift for both the guys and the gals, making the 200L join fee for the group well worth it.

This months VIP group gift is the style you see in the pictures above called “Pippa” and you get a hud of ombre colors to go with it. It’s a lovely over the shoulder style with the usual beautiful Mina texturing. Remember! There’s a men’s gift at the store too, and it’s just as good as the women’s gift!

A touch of class

I have blogged several gift items from Moondance Boutique now, and I keep finding myself returning there as I really like the variety of gifts and items (plus the included texture change huds!) I stopped by there this morning and picked up the free SL Frees & Offers group gift that has been set out — this gift set of Domino bracelets with matching rings.

You’ll get both a left and a right of both the bracelet and the ring and there is a color change hud with many, many color options for tons of versatility. You can change the metals as well as the gems! It’s a great free gift!

A Vixen in Crimson

Lady in Red
Hello Fabulouses!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Ripley and I wrapped our Sunday up by taking a stroll on the Anneliese sim.  It was a relaxing way to close out the break from the work week.

Lady in Red

My adorable red dress with a slightly flared hemline is a free gift for members of Fabulously Free in SL from Snowpaws. With a vibrant red hue and a coordinating red silk choker, the Soma Ruffle Dress had me feeling bright and cheerful.   From its plunging neckline, to its carefree asymmetrical skirt, this silk frock is perfect for a date night, or just feeling extra special.  It comes in five sizes – XXS, XS, S, M, and L, and the box contains an alpha layer for classic avatars.  The small size was just right for my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  Best of all, you can pick up this crimson beauty completely for free! Simply activate your Fab Free Group tag and teleport over to Snowpaws.  With one quick click, you can add Soma to your inventory.

Budget Friendly Bento Tresses

I discovered my sleek, center-parted Ellie hair style on the Marketplace for only 1 Linden dollar at the Vallani shop.  It comes complete with a tint and style HUD, which contains 9 style options and 30 color variations, which offers a great deal of flexibility.  The hair has fitted and Bento animated versions.   The Bento style is in the experimental stage, but it comes with a quick lock option, so you can stop the movement of your tresses quite easily.  I ended up using this handy HUD to keep my hair still.  I really like the slight wave at the ends of the style.  For just one little Linden Dollar, you can add a lovely, versatile new ‘do to your collection.

Tomorrow, it’s back to the grindstone for me, and back to guarding the house for the pupster.  Oh, how I long for our carefree summer days to return!  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Flowers Too.

Flowers_001

Flowers have a way of cheering me up. And I love applier clothing. And when I ran across a chance to use both in a post, I was very happy!

Dressed in Red

I was perusing the list of stores for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt and ran across JellyRoll on the list. You might remember my post here that showed you some great free gifts from that store. I just knew I had to find out what they had out as their hunt gift!

JellyRoll did not let me down! Their 5L hunt gift for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is the beautiful red silk dress shown above. You get an omega applier that applies the top and bottom layer and then a mesh skirt panel that comes in all the standard sizes for a perfect sleek fit. It’s simply stunning!

Flowers too

NSP Florals put out an August group gift that was too pretty to pass up. If you missed it, I blogged the July group gift here. So though there is a 125L group join fee, you’ll be getting beautiful monthly group gifts to make it worth joining. This month was the Delphinium Bouquet.

In your gift package you’ll get two bouquets… one with and one without a hold animation. For my picture I used the bouquet without the animation and used a pose I already had. However, the bouquet with the hold animation is very nice and the hold animation works well with most Animation Over-rides as far as I can tell (I tried it out with several of mine including Oracul and Vista). This is a gift well worth picking up!

Hello Summer!

Luda_001

Hello, Summer! I’m so glad we met! Especially since you’re a fun, easy hunt with 10 prizes, each for only 1L at Brii Underground! Each prize is a complete outfit with shoes to fit Slink feet and Omega applier make-up for Catwa heads! It’s a deal you can’t really beat — one stop… 10 Linden… 10 full outfits! The Hello Summer Hunt lasts until August 31st at Brii Underground. I’m going to give you a peek at three of the outfits I found while hunting as well as a couple of other group gifts I picked up recently.

Pretty in Blue

Luda is this pretty blue dress as part of the Hello Summer Hunt that you can get for just 1L at Brii’s Underground right now. You get the full outfit with shoes and make up.

Dress sizes included:

  • Standard sizes XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Luda_002

A bit of whimsy

For a nautical touch I stopped by Chop Zuey because they creator has set out some new gifts. I love these two free to all gifts that are currently out… the She Sells She Shells Necklace and Earrings set. You can get them at the free to all gift area by the fountain. The necklace has an assortment of charms and the earrings (almost hidden by my hair) are the little blue and white life preservers. These are well worth picking up.

Lucy_001

Dazzle Me.

Another outfit from Brii’s Underground Hello Summer Hunt that I really liked (again it’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time… you’re looking for a little palm tree!), was this Lucy outfit pictured above. It too, comes with the full kit and caboodle… outfit, make-up, and shoes for slink feet. I added a pair of bracelets from my inventory, but you can accessorize however you like.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza

Karolina_001

Watercolor winner.

This dress called Karolina, pictured above, reminds me of a beautiful watercolor painting, and I couldn’t resist showing it off to you. I wish the shoes were not hidden by the skirt, as they are beautiful too. Again, for just 1L at Brii’s Underground you get this as part of the Hello Summer Hunt (full outfit – dress, make-up, and shoes).

Dress sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh sizes XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Karolina_002

Something colorful.

I paired my pretty watercolor dress with something colorful from Chop Zuey. This group gift necklace called Warlock is a men’s gift, but I was easily able to size it to fit my female avatar. It works nicely for men or women either one. It has a silver pendant with a color change bead (I included a photo below of the hud to show you the options) all on a black cord.

The group is 350L to join, but currently there are gifts out for both men and women (and the men’s gift is very unisex in my opinion as you can see), and the creator is generous with regular gifts, making this group well worth joining.

Happy Hello Summer hunting. I hope you find all 10 outfits at Brii’s Underground! And enjoy the gifts at Chop Zuey. Until my next post, enjoy your day!

Follow Your Butterflies

Follow Your Butterflies

Happy Sunday, Fabulous Readers!  After a long first week back to work in RL, it sure was nice to have a quiet moment with the pupster on the front porch.  When a butterfly alighted on my outstretched hand, that moment became pure magic, but I should have expected that since I was standing in Luane’s World – a romantic, magical sim.

The Dress

My frock today is the latest free gift from Mooh! for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  The Strapless Spring Dress features a soft lavender bodice, and a white skirt adorned with an elegant purple and lavender butterfly.  It was perfect for a late summer morning exploring with Ripley.  I love the delicate double strap detail at the neckline, which is echoed on the deeply plunging back.  With mesh and fitmesh sizes for classic avatars, as well as popular mesh body types, this outfit will fit almost any avatar.  Best of all, the Fab Free group is completely free to join, so you can scoop up this little number for a song!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer for classic avatars)
  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The Necklace

My Mesh Whimsical Butterfly Necklace from ~{Sasha Lee}~ is part of a set that I picked up on the Marketplace for only 49L.  It features a long, silver chain, and a silver butterfly with a diamond studded body, and opalescent jewels embedded in its wings.  Matching earrings complete the set, but I chose not to wear them for my photo.  It seemed like it was almost made to go with my lovely new dress!

Until my next post, happy shopping!

What Does’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

Makes You Stronger

Happy weekend, fabulous readers — I hope you all are having a wonderful, relaxing summer! I’m still around and so happy to be back on the blog! I spent most of July sick in bed with a nasty respiratory infection, but I’m much better now (I hope) and glad to be back on my feet. With Carson sick too, this sure hasn’t been a good summer for the health of Fab Free bloggers! :/

I’ve got a couple of things to show you today, starting with this sexy dress from I. M. Collection. Annette comes in Fitmesh sizes S-L, as well as for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. This one is a group gift, but if blue is not your color, there are some lovely versions in pink and gray for just 100L.

Makes You Stronger

Izzie’s put out these gorgeous eye appliers for the July VIP group gift. They come in 9 different colors and include mesh eyes with a HUD, as well as appliers for Catwa, Lelutka, and Omega eyes.

I should point out that my nails are also a group gift from Hello Dave. 6 colors are included, with appliers for Slink, Maitreya, and Omega hands.

One more thing: Fri.day is having a Summer Flash Sale this weekend until August 6th at 11 p.m. SLT, and lots of sandals will be on sale for just 50L! Not the ones I’m wearing here, unfortunately, but if you like them, you can pick them up at the current round of Uber. 🙂

Fab Free Designer Friday – 08/04/2017 – Monomania

Monomania Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs, Friday may be coming to an end but the weekend is just beginning. With that in mind I highly suggest you take a moment this weekend to visit Monomania. They just so happen the subject of this weeks Designer Friday post! Why should you visit? Well first of all, the shop is very prettily decorated and landscaped, there’s even a lush courtyard type oasis you can enjoy. I always admire when there is great scenery to go along with great shopping! However, a big reason would be the huge number of group gifts and freebies you’ll find.

MonoMania Gifts
As you enter the store the wall of vendors you’ll see are the currently available Monomania group gifts. Seriously ladies, that’s half way to a new wardrobe! haha There are also a few group only Lucky Letter boards, and a group only Midnight Madness board. The Monomania group does have a one time join fee of 50 lindens, however as you can see it is 50 lindens well spent! The style of ladies mesh and applier clothing at Monomania has a wide range, so there’s definitely something for everyone.
Monomania Other Groups & Camping
A bit farther to the right of the Lucky Letter boards at Monomania you’ll find a large group of affiliate groups and their associated gifts. It’s in this spot where the FREE and exclusive Fab Free group gift by Monomania is available to all Fabulously Free in SL group members. If you haven’t picked this gorgeous green mesh dress up yet, you’ll want to make sure to snag it. It’ll be great for the current warm weather or with cute knee boots in the fall. As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join.  Monomania also has a camping chair, park your avatar for 30 minutes to claim the prize!

Have a great weekend Fab Free’rs, and happy shopping!

A Cheeky Find

Cheeky Rose

EvelineInTheBox sent out a special new gift to celebrate 1,000 members… and if you hurry you can pick up this free Nora dress in pink. The group is free to join. The detailing on this dress is fantastic. It has a pretty cut and neckline with a floral ribbon edging around the hem and sleeves. I realized belatedly that I should have given you a picture of the back of the dress, as the back is a criss-cross of ribbons for a beautiful, feminine look, with just a touch of butt-cleavage (for the daring ones!).

This dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L with an Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Cheeky Rose 2

A cheeky find.

I’m still enjoying the Aloha Fair, though I’m not sure how much longer you have to pick up all the great gifts. I found this pretty necklace by Cheeky called Boho Rose as a 1L gift and it matched my dress just perfectly. I picked it up and found it fit over most of my mesh dresses and has a pretty rose metallic finish. It’s a steal for just 1L!

Be sure to visit the Aloha Fair before it is over… the variety of beautiful dollarbie gifts is just amazing!
