The Lady in Red

Lady in Red

There’s a fresh FREE lucky board at Entice (no group required) that is just yummy! This Rain Over Me in Gradient dress (with a 3 color hud for red, blue, or purple as your color choices) is yours with a bit of luck if your letter comes up. Don’t fret though… it’s right next to several other lucky letter boards, a FREE Group Midnight Mania board, a no group required FREE midnight Mania board, and other group gifts … all FREE. So you’re bound to find things to keep you busy while you wait for your letter!

This dress in standard fitmesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits, and includes an alpha layer for standard mesh bodies as well. You’re bound to find your fit!

The Moda board locked down the other day too, delivering me a pair of Cayla Wedges in red… woot! These matched my new Entice dress in its red color so well, that I couldn’t help remind you of this awesome FREE Midnight mania board. It locks down at 400 slaps and the pair of shoes changes out daily… so it’s worth smacking to lock down… just go slap it!

** Quick note to clarify: Since my Moda shoes are from a couple of days ago, today’s style and color will be different. As I explained in the paragraph above, the style and/or color available changes daily! This is just a reminder of this great free offer:)

A Girl and Her Bird

A Girl and Her Bird

It’s Saturday! And that means 30L specials abound… but I also have a special freebie for you today and a 1L goodie as well to round out a roleplay look that you won’t want to miss out on.

I stopped by Torvis Weapons today and discovered this beautiful red silk called Vidina on special for 30L. It includes the fitmesh camisk which you also get in Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits plus the gold bracelets, gold belt and a gold collar (collar not shown). For 30L, if you are an avid roleplayer, this is a steal!

Every archer needs a bow, and I found a very nice realistic one on the Marketplace for only 1L. It has both a scripted and nonscripted version in the box so you can save on scripts if you roleplay in a “write only” area, or if you roleplay in an area where GM weapons are used, simply use the GM version of the weapon. This “Deathrays’ simple bow” makes a nice prop and is easy to use. It was only 1L on the Marketplace!

If you are a photographer in Second Life, you might also want to stop by Lorien today and pick up the 10 pack of “Naughty Girl” poses that are out. I am showing you one from the pack that you can get today for just 30L. These are very nicely done and for only 30L that’s just 3L per pose!

A Girl and Her Bird 2

The last item I have to show you today is very special indeed. It’s nice to have a shoulder pet in rp, but realistic ones can be very expensive. Grizzly Creek currently has two on the marketplace that are FREE and fully functional with beautiful animations and movement.

I’m showing you the Cutthroat Finch but there is another beautiful bird you can pick up for FREE if you check out their store, as well as many other high quality pets for regular price. You might find yourself quite addicted to these gorgeous babies! This particular pet can be rezzed or worn, and is only 3 prim when rezzed! The shoulder pet itself is a low lag 6 scripts.

Once Upon a PurpleMoon

Once upon a Purple Moon

Once upon a PurpleMoon… there was a great group gift and you only needed the group tag to get it! The group tag was 50L but the regular group gifts and special offers made it well worth the join fee! This month’s group gift is called Tiffany… and it is every woman’s dream come true…

This dress comes with a half skirt (shown) or a full skirt (not shown) add on, as well as mesh to support all the major mesh body types, including an auto hide for Maitreya bodies! This dress even includes a beautiful sculpt bow for your waist! All you’ll need is to find a great pair of heels somewhere and you’ll be set… just be sure you don’t leave one behind at the stroke of midnight!

Your Friday Hunt Report

flirty-summer-hunt-logoGood Morning Fabulous Fans! There are lots of fun hunts going on right now, so if you love fabulously free stuff, there’s no better time to take up the sport of hunting.

The Paws, Tails & Whiskers Hunt and the Stars and Stripes Hunt end today, so if you want in on those it’s time to jump up off the couch and grab your hunting bag.

A couple of hunts just started today. You can be the first kid on your block to participate. They are the Flirty Summer Hunt and the Raining Tacos Hunt. Who doesn’t like tacos?!

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?

Lazy

Heyya FabFree!

Lazy

I’m being so lazy today and no one can stop me.  Or would that be start me…?  Anyway, I found some really nifty boots for us today. These are the ‘Vintage Cowboy Boots’ from Shine by ZD and they are the hidden free gift at the Swank event. You’ll have to hunt around the Shine booth but it’s well worth the effort. The details on these boots are fantastic. I see them becoming very popular in my wardrobe.

My lazy shopping day is rounded off by some Marketplace shopping. I found this super cute denim skirt from Millenaire for just 1L. The Jeans Skirt comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. There are several cute things on the Millenaire page and if they are all as nicely built as this skirt then I’m a fan.

Tropical Mornings

Tropical Mornings

I was in the mood to walk the beach this morning… but needed some proper attire. There was a group gift out at paper.arrow that I thought was perfectly fitting for such a walk and so I headed over to pick it up. This slip dress is yours FREE with your group tag. It comes in two versions — the one I am showing you in the picture above which has the mint top and flamingo skirt, or one with an all-over flamingo print.

This dress comes in Maitreya and Slink fits, and does not include an alpha layer (though I’m sure if you needed one, you could probably dig one up out of your inventory). The group fee is a one time cost of 250L, but you’ll find a wall full of past group gifts up at paper.arrow to pick up, as well as this pretty dress to make it worth joining.

I decided I was going to do some “rock hopping” instead of “sand walking” and so I really wanted some cute tennis shoes to finish off my look. Lindy Modern & Retro shoes did not let me down! For just 1L and a little hunting time, I found this pair of adorable pink tennis shoes at their main-store as part of the Beached Bunny Hunt 6. These shoes includes fits for classic, Slink flat, and Maitreya feet… so everyone wins out!

Not a Wall Flower

Not a Wall Flower

Call me old school if you will, but Casablanca is one of my favorite movies… right up there with Citizen Kane. So when I realized there was a Casablanca remake Sim in Second Life I knew I wanted to check it out. Loki got there before me, but my turn has long been overdue… I just hadn’t found the right outfit… until now.

The Moda Midnight Mania board locked down again yesterday, giving me another set of great FREE shoes for my slink feet. These heels are stunning and come in white with a hud to change the metal on the underside (gold, silver, or bronze). If you missed them when they locked down yesterday, they are there also again today, only in a slightly modified version… so they are worth locking down again today if you picked them up yesterday. I’ve heard a few people say they had some delivery issues. Not to worry, just hit the redelivery terminal and they will be sent to you!

And then I realized that I’d missed the June group gift for TBO The Beautiful Ones! But luckily it is still out! This Venus Dress in Turquoise is still out, though I’m not sure for how long. It comes in all your standard fitmesh sizes and also supports all the major mesh body types like Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. It has a beautiful front, and equally dramatic back (with a plunging back… phew… sexy) and fits like a dream.

There are several ways you can pick up this stunner. If you are a group member (the group membership is 25L) the dress is yours FREE, just pay the terminal 1L and your 1L is immediately refunded and the dress is delivered to you. You can also opt to pay the special price of just 10L if you don’t have any group space, or wish to opt out of joining the group. OR if you are already a subscriber, you can click the subscriber and the dress will be delivered to you completely FREE, no group required. Note: this does not work for new subscriber members, you must have been a past subscriber, so this is a good reason to subscribe and stay a subscriber!

Not a Wall Flower 2

Though I admit that Casablanca the movie was in black and white… I always imagine it being a colorful world. When I saw this FREE group gift flower headpiece by Finesmith (the group is FREE to join), I knew I had to add it to my look… it just had the right feel to finish off what I wanted to feel (yes lots of feels in there right?). Because of course at Casablanca there can never really be any wall flowers… not really… or if they are, they are wall flowers in disguise, pretending to be wall flowers when they are really not. Or that’s somehow the way I imagine that world. “Play it again, Sam!”

Seaside

Snapshot_002Good morning FabFree! I have returned from my mini-vacation and am back to work finding fashionable freebies for you!  Today I am going to tell you about the group gifts you can pick up at Manik Queen when you join their inworld group for 100L.

Before I do that, I want you to zoom into my hair and look at the cute gold flower I have on.  This Truth Gold Flower can be found inside the free Indie Teepee Free Moon Fest Bag along with a few other fun things throughout the duration of the Indie Teepee Event.  I am wearing my flower with the Truth Etienne Hairstyle that is featured at Indie Teepee for 200L, but I am sure it would look really cute with others too.

Ok, back to Manik Queen!  Once you join the group (100L), you can pick up the mesh Seaside Dress that includes 5 standard sizes and a texture change hud that allows for three different nautical prints.
MANIK QUEEN - Seaside DressIf that wasn’t enough to convince you to join – these matching Seaside Flipflops are also a free group gift!  They come in Belleza, Slink and Maitreya sizes, but you can edit them to shift them around if you happen to be wearing other feet (according to the designer ad).

In the Mood for Moda

In the Mood for Moda

The weather is warm, but the gifts are fabulous! Stop by NYU to pick up this gorgeous FREE SL Frees & Offers Group gift dress and get it while its hot! I admit, the back of this dress is my favorite part, which is why I’m showing it off to you! It has these great cut outs that are super cute!

This dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes, as well as Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique fits. You’ll also get a nicely done alpha layer for standard bodies.

I also wanted to show you another great FREEBIE I’ve run across. I am loving Moda shoes. The group fee ended up being a bit more than I could personally afford (though if you can afford it, there are several group gifts out for your 1,000L group join) but I found that there was a daily Midnight Mania board that locks down at 400 slaps, and no group is required.

Now the thing is, the prize seems to change daily! So this is both is great because you literally can fill your shoe inventory… but I couldn’t show you the prize on the board today. This is the prize I picked up the other day. But you can definitely see the quality. The shoes fit Slink feet. So you can see why I love going over to Moda and slapping this FREE, no group required, Midnight Mania board for shoes!
