Not So Basic

Not So Basic

My go-to is the little black dress.  I love the easy glam of pulling on a black dress and knowing it will be appropriate, no matter the situation.  However, some days you really just want to push the envelope a bit.  Purple is the perfect half way point, I think.  Because it’s dark, sultry, and um…not black!  In my post today, I’ll tell you all about where to grab this particularly head-turning ensemble!

Dressed Up

I found my not so basic dress at Masoom!  Their April group gift is this dress that toes the line between supersexy and regal, and I’m loving every minute of it!  You can grab yours by joining the Masoom group for 10L.  I mean, check out them cut outs!  How can you possibly live without?  😉

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Well Heeled

My shoes today were a completely free find at Bodyfy – the event that focuses mostly on tattoos and other suchness.  I was pleased to find a free pair of shoes by Fashion Addiction.  Just find the red buttons at each stall to pick up your gifts – no group join required, making these pretty pumps completely free!  The Bodyfy event is open until April 24th.

Best Tressed

And, it’s Truth time!  The March group gift came out a smidge late, however check out this pretty thing!  As always, the Truth monthly group gift is gorgeous, with a full fatpack of colours and a stylist HUD that lets you change up the bangs.  It’s kinda like getting 4 hairstyles in one!  If you haven’t joined the Truth group, it may seem a little pricey at 350 Lindens, but every month you get a sweet hairstyle that is always top notch.  Well worth it!

Time to sashay away!

Dear Spring,

Hey there. I’ve written to you before I know, but you still haven’t answered… I know it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other, but I just wanted to let you know that I really miss you.  I miss your warm breezes, your blossoming trees, and your sunny days.  Winter is kinda overstaying its welcome here, and you know the saying – a visitor is like fish, after three months it stinks (isn’t that after three days? Anyway…whatever).  I’m just writing because I’d really like you to come back, and bring all your charming attributes with you.  Please?  Pretty please?

In Anticipation…

Since Spring is still hiding in my part of the world, I’m just going to dress up like it’s Spring and pretend that it’s warm.  I picked up a bunch of fun things at The Project Se7en event – It’s their anniversary, so in order to celebrate they’ve got lots of fun gifts at each booth.  To start things off, I got this cute pink romper by Sys.  I like how it looks all sweet and knitted.  Perfect for cavorting in meadows, I think.  I added these stockings by Ambrosia for a little innocent look, (can we really classify thigh high stockings as innocent…I dunno…but just roll with me) making this look even more fun.  The stockings come with appliers for Maitreya bodies.  Finally, my pose and the flower in my hair are a gift from Belle Poses.  I love the carefree daisy look!  You can grab all these free gifts (and many more) at The Project Se7en by joining the group for free, and taking a walk about and clicking on all the balloon-festooned boxes.  The Project Se7en is open until April 30th.  Have fun!

Hey Spring, are you going to answer my letter or not?!

Vintage Spring

Vintage
Hey there Fab Free’rs! I hope you enjoyed the weekend. I wanted to take a minute to share with you one more of the 10 linden gifts at the Up Event along with the Spring 2018 group gift from Vintage Touch. Both are nice, inexpensive items that if they are your style it would be a shame to miss out on.

The Outfit – Cynderella has this cute halter top and shorts set out at the Up Event for just 10 linden. The belted shorts and top are included in the same box. There are several inexpensive gifts at the Cynderella booth at Up. My apologies for not showing a better view of the cute dark denim shorts. Both the top and shorts come in several mesh sizes. There is no group required, just pay the gift box 10 linden and get your outfit. Also, there is an alpha layer included for the shorts.
Mesh Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Standard Mesh (xs -XL), Slink, Maitreya Lara

The Lounger – I think the rose floral print of this lounge chair from Vintage Touch is beautiful. This chair is the Spring 2018 group gift at Vintage Touch. It has several single poses for male and female avatars. To get  your copy head over to Vintage Touch and join the group. There is a one time join fee of 5 linden. Then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag and the chair will be sent to you.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Long Day

Long Day
Hey There Fab Free’rs. Welcome back to the blog. I’m always happy you’re here. Yesterday one of those days where you daydream about that moment when you can come home and soak in a nice warm bath. While waiting for the tub to fill and the bath bomb to work it’s magic, I did a little Fab Free style shopping. Here’s what I found: adorable group gift shorts from Moon Amore, and a pretty white ink tattoo by Abyel.

The Shorts – Perfect for lounging around the house, or even a quick errand, these shorts are a must have. They are a recent group gift at Moon Amore and they include a fat pack texture change hud. When I say fatpack, I mean fatpack. There are 36 different texture options for these too cute shorts. They are fitted for Maitreya Lara bodies only however. The Moon Amore group has a one time join fee of just 50 linden. I think these shorts alone are worth that! You can find this gift at the store or in the recent group notices.

The Tattoo –  There is an event called “Up” and there are quite a few 10 linden gifts at the current round. I picked up several, one of which is this tattoo by Abyel. The tattoo is a full upper body tattoo with pretty imagery front and back. I like the addition of little blue/purple flowers and butterflies.  This beautiful 10 linden gift tattoo at Up comes in appliers only.

Appliers Included: Maitreya, Omega, Slink

Here are the details, enjoy!

Looking For the Land of Rainbows

Dappled Sunlight

Happy Middle of the Week, Fabulous Readers!  I’m looking forward to the upcoming three day weekend, and I sure hope you have some extra time off as well.  Today, the pupster and I traveled to the Land of Rainbows, and sought out colorful Easter eggs, which are hidden throughout the sim.  There are gifts for both men and women in this hunt, and they are all completely free!

Sweet Spring Mini

One of the eggs in the Land of Rainbows Easter Egg hunt contained this adorable Iris Dress, which is a free gift from Wicca’s Wardrobe.  Featuring a high neckline secured with thin straps, a decorative waistband, and a dramatically low back, this pretty floral frock is perfect for the warm spring days to come.  I love the added touch of the dangling straps down my back.  Although there were no sizes for classic avatars, this fresh little number fit my Maitreya Lara mesh body perfectly.  Best of all, when you locate the Easter egg from Wicca’s Wardrobe, you can add Iris to your spring wardrobe for free!  The hunt runs until April 6th, so you still have plenty of time to hit the trail.

Mesh Body Compatibility: 

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

I know a certain someone who is looking for some quality men’s outfits to blog, so I’d better run and give him a chance to do some egg hunting of his own.  Until next time, happy shopping hunting!

The Call of Spring

The Call of Spring

Through primrose tufts, in that green bower, 
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths; 
And ’tis my faith that every flower 
Enjoys the air it breathes. 

Sorbet Spring

We are coming close to the end of March, and I’m hoping that the above staves will help bring forth the warmth and renewal we all crave.  I’m just sitting in my green bower, listening to the sounds of spring that are all around me.  I found the perfect dress to lead me into sunnier climes!  I found my way to Sorbet, where there are several group gifts to be had.  I paid 25L to join the group and got this lovely dress.  It brings me a thrill of pleasure, just as Spring did to William Wordsworth when he wrote the above poem (though he did get a bit sad about the state of man, but that’s another topic entirely…).  The Robe Plisée Framboise (oooh) comes in sizes XS, S, and M with an Alpha layer.

Details

My necklace today was another fantastic gift I picked up at Pure Poison, who as I mentioned HERE are really a treasure trove of gifts.  Join the group for free to pick up this lovely necklace (and get yourself loads of other stuff too while you’re there!).   Wheeee!
I hope Spring is sneaking up on you too, wherever you are.

Cyber Bats

Cyber Bats
Hellooo Fab Free’rs! As you can see by the photos above, I’ve been having some fun with several freebies and cheapies I found recently. I want to say right away that each of them is very time sensitive so if you like them do not wait to pick them up! Keep reading and I’ll give you all the infos!

That Hair!

Each of the two hairstyles shown above are part of the single Finders Keepers/St. Patrick’s Day Hunt. There have been a many other recent posts showing Finders Keepers Hunt items, I’ll list the others below. These super cool hairstyles are from A&Y Cybernetics. You’ll be hunting a little pot of gold. The hunt ends March 24th, so again do not wait! The hint for A&Y’s post of gold is “golden light of the firefly beckons gold.” In the FREE hunt gift at A&Y you’ll get the Lucia hair (left) and the Dext hair (right). The Lucia hair comes with a “no tubes” version. The Dext hair is technically a male hairstyle. It has a set of system layer hair bases and an Omega applier hair base.

P.S. I had a little help from a loyal Fab Free reader finding this hunt prize, so I’ll pay it forward to you. The key word in the hint is “Firefly”. I hope that helps. Happy Hunting!

Weird and Wonky

Weird and Wonky

Oh hey there Fab Free.  You’re looking lovely this evening.  I’m feeling….a bit weird and wonky.  I dunno, like I’ve been looking at myself in a fun house mirror or something.  The only thing to do when that happens is run with it – make the weirdness your biggest asset, and that’s what I plan to do.  Today, I found the perfect dress to make my weirdness come out front and centre.

Meet Me At the Altar

Ostara’s Altar, that is!  It’s an event filled with the witchy, spooky, gothy things I highly enjoy, as well as having a fun little 5L hunt going on too.  I found the Get Frocked egg, and inside lay this fun dress!  It just calls out to me.  Want to know what lies hidden within the other eggs?  Well you can have a little peek right HEREOstara’s Altar runs until April 3rd, so head on over!

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

At Midnight…

I have been enjoying a few different free Olive hairdos in the last little while, and recently I slapped the Midnight Madness board while I was there, and this hella big creation was delivered to me at Midnight! I’ve done it a few times, and each time I have participated, the prize was delivered to me!  I’m pretty sure it is switched every few days, so the hair I’m wearing might not be available today, but there are a whole bunch of other options, so you can add to your hair collection!  Good Luck!
