Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Sugar Doll

Sugar Doll Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I’m not sure if I am excited or a little disappointed that the month is already half over and Halloween is a mere 2 weeks away. I genuinely enjoy this time of year, and I hate to see it fly by so quickly. That said, all the more reason to enjoy every minute that remains! Little Bones, Letis Tattoo, and Petite Mort have all set out gorgeous FREE group gifts recently. Without a shadow of doubt these gifts are among my favorite of the October gifts I’ve come across thus far. I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as much as I do.
Sugar Doll 2 Starting from top to bottom, this pretty strait hairstyle is the most recent group gift at Little Bones. The Dion hair at Little Bones is a full fatpack of hair colors, and has some unique features. This simple yet elegant style also includes a hud that allows you to change the way the hair lays. You can set the style to be over both shoulders, over one shoulder on either side, or behind both shoulders. Additionally the hud is scripted with additional animations that make your avatar appear to be touching or playing with his or her hair. It really is well done and a fun playful addition. The Little Bones group carries a one time join fee of 100 lindens.

Next up, the whimsical sugar skull style face-paint is a recent group gift from Letis Tattoo. This FREE group gift includes a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Catwa applier for the sugar skull face with 3 color options. Aside from the obvious artistry and imagination of the sugar skull face, I love the culture and legend behind the imagery.  Not to mention this sort of face can be worn with any sort of outfit and not betray the spirit of Dia De Los Muertos. To get this FREE gift, head over to Letis and join the FREE-to-join in world group and pick up your FREE gift.

My personal favorite part of this look saved for last, this beautiful dress is the October group gift at Petite Mort. There isn’t anything about this dark elegant dress that I don’t like. The skirt has a look of stars peeking through clouds in the night, and even the bodice has a faint delicate pattern. Once again I find myself using the word whimsical to describe the gifts in this post. The gift is FREE to all Petite Mort group members. The group has a one time join fee of 75 lindens. This dress alone is well worth the join fee in my opinion. The gift comes in standard mesh sizes, as well as a fit for Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara.

I genuinely hope you like this Sugar Doll look as much as I do.

Falling for Sweaters

Coming soon to FabFree

The days are getting shorter, and the air is getting cooler (allegedly, unless you live in a southern climate like me :P).  It’s my favorite time of the year, cute and cozy sweater weather!  I’m in love with this Halloween-y sweater dress group gift from S@BBiA (free to join).  To round out the outfit, I added pieces from Sn@tch’s 7 Seas Fishing outfit, Coven.  Shown here are the boots, leggings, earrings and choker necklace.  (If you would like to see the rest, check out Love’s Post!).  You will need a 7 Seas fishing pole to get these items.  They start at $100 L, and are worth the investment!

Bubbling With Excitement Over Fabulous Gifts

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Today it was time for Ripley’s annual visit to the V-E-T.  He was due for his rabies shot and a few other nasty pokes, so on the way home, it was time for some shopping therapy.  Aren’t I a lucky girl to have a pooch who loves bargain-hunting as much as I do?  After the promise of “Ripley-snacks,” my hound with a nose for fashion quickly tracked down two Fabulous Finds that we’re “bubbling” with excitement to share with you.  Ripley didn’t have to search far…these goodies include two gifts for Fab Free Group members.

To join the FabFree Group, (free to join), copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL Viewer and click the group join link – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .  There are so many wonderful gifts available to Fabulously Free members, and the list is growing every day!

Bubbling With Excitement

For our first Fabulous Find, I slipped on the free, sleek Karmyn dress from #Bubbles.  With two curve-hugging silky mauve sides connected by a creamy, lacy panel, what’s not to love about this dress?  Its soft colors are sure to flatter any avatar.  A quick jaunt over to the Free Dove yielded my accessories which are a free gift set from Chop Zuey.  The purpley-pink tone of the center gem stone surrounded by gleaming diamonds perfectly echoed the color scheme of my dress.  With an application of subtle matte lipstick from Birth, Nefertiti eyeliner from Euphoric and Star Bliss nail polish from Livia (only 10L on The Marketplace – score team Ripley!), I’m all glamm’d up and ready to go!

Somewhere Between Love and Friendship

Of course, after a morning at the animal hospital and bargain hunting, Ripley was ready for some well-deserved R and R at the lovely “A Painter’s Link” sim. He brown-bagged his Ripley-snacks and I brought along a picnic lunch to enjoy underneath a shady maple tree. For this outing, I needed a more casual outfit, so I combined Candys Capris from Cartiera Designs with two of our other finds of the day: the strappy, pink spiked shoes from Living Vintage Couture (another Free Fab Free Group Gift) and SG Apparel’s Rhapsody Gypsy top. The fun, unusual shoes left my fresh French manicure from By Snow (0L on The Marketplace) free to sparkle in the dappled sunshine. My pink crop top coordinated perfectly with my shoes, but if pink is not your color, the top comes with a color-change HUD with several other options. This top is a featured item in this week’s Fifty5 Thursdays sales line up. The sale runs through Sunday, but some designers keep up the sale items up for an entire week. All in all, these separates combined to create a fun, playful outfit for our afternoon leisure time.

Right now, Ripley is snoozing away his active morning, but I’m sure he’ll wake up soon raring to seek out some more Fabulous Finds to share with our wonderful readers. Until next time, happy shopping!

In the Dark

In the Dark

In the spirit of longer nights and shorter days, I decided to put together a spookier outfit. I don’t always dress up for Halloween, but I do love the holiday. This dress and hat when I put them together gave me a little thrill, and the price was perfect too.

You can score this dress (in all the standard mesh sizes) for FREE by slapping the midnight mania board at LOoLOo‘s. No group required. Hurry though, it locks down at only 15 slaps… though my dress was delivered well before midnight, so it’s possible that it is one of those boards that locks more than once in a day. I like the details on this dress as well as the cut.

I paired it with a ladies one piece top hat and veil from Pixel Box. This is a 5L marketplace hunt. You visit their marketplace store and hunt down the item. It will only cost you a little time and 5 little linden. I thought it added a nice macabre touch to the dress without going overboard.

Fab Free Designer Friday – 10/14/2016 – Glitter

Glitter New It’s that Fabulous day again! As if Fridays were not reason enough to be cheerful, it’s been fantastic adding in these fun Fab Free Designer Friday posts. The purpose of these posts is to let our wonderful Fab Free community know about the amazing shops that are part of the Fabulously Free in SL experience. This week’s shop is Glitter! The Glitter brand is yet another brand that has been in Second Life for quite some time. You’ll find mostly mesh and classic system layer women’s clothing at Glitter. The style has some range from casual to more formal attire as you can kind of see in the photo above.

Along with the black and gold Glitter logo, the photo shows the New items wall inside the Glitter main store. On this wall you’ll find current event exclusives like the ones shown for Swank, as well as current Glitter group gifts. There are little group join signs below the group gifts, and nestled among the row of past group gifts that are all still available. You’ll find an additional group joiner on the little white desk as well. The Glitter group is FREE to join, so these Glitter group gifts are genuinely FREE, you just need to wear the group tag.
Glitter Gifts Directly across from the desk on the inside wall you’ll find some additional information, and a few more group gifts. Yes more! These gifts require a different group, like the one exclusively for Fab Free group members! Just look for that colorful Fab Free sign, wear your group tag, and click the vendor for your Fabulously Free in SL exclusive gift from Glitter. You probably recall seeing this gift blogged here by our very own Sheidey. So take a moment to stop by the Glitter shop and take advantage of the fantastic gifts and perhaps even do a little shopping while you’re there!


Follow Me – Everything Is Alright

Good morning Fabulouses🙂.  When Edi mentioned last week that there were new free group lucky boards at Caboodle in her post [HERE], I ran right over to see if there was anything for me.  Low and behold – there was!  Not only did I snag the leather pants she told us about in a couple different colours, but my lucky letter also came up for this super sweet Shaleene Dress in Green Leaves print.  I have shown this dress in different prints previously on FabFree (once as a hunt prize in Blue Floral [HERE] and once in a solid burgandy as a group gift which is still available [HERE], so as you can see…  I REALLY like the cut of this dress😉

The Caboodle group is free to join – good luck with your lucky letter!

The Wicked Witch of the South

The Wicked Witch of The South Hello There Fab Free’rs, thanks for coming by. It’s my favorite month of the year, and I decided to get a little witch-y with my style because why not?! When else can you get away with an over-sized witch hat as an accessory? In all honesty, the moment I put on this October subscriber group gift from BYRNE, I knew I wanted to wear a hat with it. I didn’t plan on a witch hat at first, but I’m quite pleased with the way things came together. Speaking of October group gifts, these adorable heels are the current group gift at Empire.  And of course I found an inexpensive lipstick by Stellar, that I couldn’t live without. I hope you like this spin on a classic witch look as much as I do!
Wicked Witch of The South Starting with the gift from BYRNE, my photos really do not do this mid-length dress justice. There are little details like the high neck, the full sleeves, and the buttons up the front that give the dress an elegant vintage feel. This group gift from BYRNE comes in the rust color shown and a blue color, both in several standard mesh sizes. Also included with this Fabulous FREE gift are a matching pair of goggles for each dress which are not shown in the photos. To add this lovely dress to your wardrobe, you’ll need to join the BYRNE Style group in world, and check the past notices. The group is FREE to join, and you’ll find a men’s gift as well!

I don’t think I could have picked a more darling pair of strapped heels to go with this dress. These lovely shoes are the October group gift at Empire. This gift is generous as always in that it includes shoes to fit Maitreya, Slink, TMP, and Belleza mesh feet. Also included is a color change hud that allows you to change each individual part of the shoes, from straps and buckles to sole. These shoes are FREE to all group members, simply join the Empire VIP group and wear your tag. The Empire VIP group has a one time join fee of 499 linden.

Finally, I cannot resist the final touch of a glittery nude lipstick from Stellar. This dollarbie applier gives a subtle shine and tint that is quite pretty and perfect for everyday wear. A fun Marketplace find by Stellar, the lip-color works with Lelutka mesh heads, Omega compatible heads, and includes a classic system layer for non-mesh avatars. Once again, I love the slight change makeup layers allow.

I genuinely hope you enjoy this look as much as I do! Here are the details.

Reaching for the moon

Reaching for the moon

I don’t know about you dear readers but sometimes I use this blog as something of a destination guide. My fellow bloggers are such creative photographers that more often than not I find myself curious to see the sims that they’ve used as their backdrop. Follow your bliss is one such location and for this little adventure I’ve chosen to wear the aptly named Joy from Luzifee that you can get for free by joining the Fabulously Free in SL group. In the days of autumn oranges, browns, and golds, this smock dress will bring a cheerful dash of color to your Second Life wardrobe. It comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS-L) and one fitted mesh size with a good alpha layer included in the package. Not only is the uneven hemline of the dress unique but I adore the lovely patchwork pattern in the front of this dress as well. Even with my steadily growing inventory, I can safely say I don’t have anything in it like this free offering from Luzifee. So! What are you waiting for? Follow these steps to getting this gift and more:

First copy and paste the following link into local chat in your Secondlife Viewer: secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about

Second, click on the link in local chat and you’re done! Welcome to the group! Time to pick up some wonderful gifts!

I got lucky in finding the items to tie this whole look together. In the case of these boots, quite literally as I got them off the lucky boards at Sn@tch. Bring a alot a bit of a boots junkie I was ecstatic when I won the pair pictured. It was even more exciting when I discovered that there were a lot of options when it came to choosing the appearance of these boots as you can tint and texture different parts individually according to your fancy. There’s even the option to make the spikes shinier which I definitely did.

The hairstyle I’m sporting is one of the older ones from Truth called Roma and the good news is that you can get the color packs of all of the hairstyles upstairs in the discount area for only 50L. I’ve already a collection of hairs from this merchant and will certainly be sneaking up those stairs more often to expand!
