That Touch of Pink

That Touch of Pink

Hi Fab Free’rs I hope you had a great weekend and a good start to the week so far. Also to those who’ve celebrated Mother’s Day or are celebrating today, Happy Mother’s Day!! Today I am excited to share this cute almost bubble goth style look with you. You can get this entire outfit including the dress, shoes, ring, and the mani/pedi for just 75 linden. Like always I tell you specifically how, and where in the details below. I hope you enjoy this look. Pink may not always be my go-to color but I definitely love it as an accent color. I personally really love the way this outfit turned out.
That Touch of Pink Close

Usually I’d start from the top and end with the shoes. Tonight I’m going to start by telling you about these fantastic FREE shoes from Empire. Recently Empire put up 6 lucky boards at their main store. Each board has a specific pair of shoes in a single lucky board only color. That’s right, not only are these shoes FREE, they are in an exclusive color for that shoe style. There is a group tag needed to play these lucky boards, however, it’s a FREE-to-join Empire Updates group. This group is separate from the Empire VIP group that allows you to claim group gifts. The group joiner for the FREE Empire Updates group is located just under the lucky boards. Definitely make sure you’re joining the right group. The shoes Pru is wearing for this look are just 1 of the 6 pairs. Additionally, each pair of shoes comes in several sizes/fits for specific mesh feet. If you ask me they are definitely worth stalking the lucky boards for!

Next,  I picked up this beautiful ring and the simple yet classic manicure/pedicure at SWANK for FREE. The ring is a beautiful statement abalone ring. I have always loved abalone in jewelry. The shell has beautiful swirls of green and blue with hints of pink and violet. I think it’s not only a beautiful piece, but versatile as well. You could wear it with anything and it would look amazing! This particular FREE gift at SWANK is from Vintage Touch. Also at SWANK is this undeniably classic white french tip manicure/pedicure set from Tashi. This gift is FREE as well, and includes appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, and Omega nails in several “nude” tones. Everyone  should have a simple white french-tip manicure in their inventory.

Now for the dress! This sweet little black dress from Apple May Designs has  a lot of simple charm. The sweetheart cut to the top and the extra wide flare to the skirt gives the dress a doll-like look. One of the best features of the dress is the thin belt. Included with this dress from Apple May Designs is a color-change hud that allows you to choose between several pastel colors for the belt. You can purchase this dress on the Marketplace from Apple May Designs for just 75 lindens as their Buy Now offer.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Tennis Anyone?

Tennis anyone? I put together an outfit that made me feel like going out on the courts today!

Tennis Anyone? 2

I have to say, I am loving the gifts at this round of FaMESHed! I picked up a few that I think you’ll definitely want to add to your wardrobe. These items have a luxury sports feel to them that are perfect for that “country club tennis court” look. Best part is… all these gifts are FREE! Just join the FaMESHed Group and click the boxes at the booths.

I picked up my fat pack of amazing locks at Damselfly. This style is called Francie, and if you pick up this FREE gift, you get every color available in the gift.

My earrings are the luxury earrings gift from the Noche display, and I also picked up these great sunglasses from Kitja. The sunglasses gift come in silver or gold. Both of these accessories, like the hair, are FREE gifts.

Tennis Anyone?

The last (but not least) item I am showing you is this sporty looking V-neck dress from Coco Designs. It comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh and Maitreya. It too is a FREE FaMESHed gift.

My hard earned trip to Fameshed early on had won me a fabulous shirt for men which I showed you HERE, but I wanted to make sure that I didn’t neglect to mention this fabulous suit by Kauna that is also being given at the event as an anniversary gift FREE.

This suit is the full kit and caboodle and comes in fits for standard avatars as well as Slink and TMP. You’ll be getting the pants with attached belt, a waistcoat (not shown), the lavender shirt which comes in four versions (various tucked in and untucked versions, as well as different sleeve cuff versions), plus the jacket. The fit and movement of the suit is superb. You’ll need to join the FREE Fameshed group and stop by the Kauna booth and click the box to pick up this outstanding FREE gift. If you want to avoid the crowds, don’t stress, you’ll have until May 27th.

Jump the Fence

Jump the Fence

It wasn’t easy getting past the crowds to get into this round of Fameshed, but it was worth it! Have you heard the news? It’s Fameshed‘s 4th anniversary, and that means gifts! Thankfully, creators have generously remembered us menfolk!

I was able to pick up a couple of really outstanding gifts I wanted to share with you. You’ll have plenty of time to jump to Fameshed later if you don’t want to fight the crowds just yet, as it will be running until May 27th.

I picked up this really fantastic mesh shirt in all the standard sizes by etham called “Patrick Jumper” as the first FREE gift I wanted to share with you. You do need to wear the Fameshed group tag, but the group is FREE to join, so you just need a free group slot. This shirt is of excellent quality and make, and worth putting in your inventory.

I also grabbed this fence you see behind me. It too is a FREE gift at Fameshed being offered by Di’Cor. There are two parts in the gift, the straight links, and a corner link, so you can make a fence to suit your needs. Each piece is 4 prim, and when two are linked they add up to 7 (instead of 8). They are high detail mesh.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

Good evening lovelies! I think I have put together the girliest outfit I could imagine, complete with bows, flower prints, ruffles and lace. Would you believe, you can have all this girly-goodness for under L$40! Yes, really.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

Let me start with my skirt, as I truly believe, especially from the backside, this is the star of my show…or should I say the bow of my show. *grins for a minute* My fabulous Gift Wrap skirt is from Promagic, and you can find this colour, and several others, on the Marketplace, for only L$10 each. It is mesh, comes in the standard sizes, and come on…just look at that bow! Love it.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

Needing something as equally pretty for my top, I kept searching on the Marketplace and stumbled across The Sea Hole Outlet! Do you remember The Sea Hole store, I still have so many items from that store, and was bummed when it closed. Now, I don’t know if I had just missed seeing items from there on the Marketplace all these years, or if they were just more recently added, but you can find so many of those wonderful pre-mesh clothing pieces, and the prices are unbelievable! I picked up the Odette Bustier in the Rosey Real print, HERE, for only L$8. It is clothing layers only, sorry mesh body wearers, but for those of us still using system bodies, there is nothing wrong with a great quality, clothing layer item.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

If you can’t tell, my inspiration for picking the specific colours I did for my skirt and top, came from these to-die-for shoes. Yup, they were the starting point for my whole outfit. My Lari heels are from a new-to-me store called BOOB-LiSH, and are actually a L$10 steal at The Dark Side event. They are meant for SLink high feet, and honestly, my picture does not do them justice, they are worth way more than the L$10 asked for. Let me warn you, I was late in heading over to this event, so you only have 1 day left to get over there, as this event ends tomorrow (Saturday, April 30th). It’s well worth the rushed trip though, as almost every store participating has a L$10 item out, and believe me, if there was more time, I’d show you a lot more.

Feeling Down Right Girly!

I am managing to show off one other L$10 deal from The Dark Side. This time, it’s from *PB* Nails, and it is my Step Into The Light Mani and Pedi. I’ve included a shot of the ad to show off all the sweet colours you have to choose from for this SLink nail applier hud. They are perfect for Spring/Summer!

The one last item I wanted to point out, is my hair. If my hair in RL was just a touch longer, it could look just like the cute hair I have on here in SL. The Beusy June Gift is a complete fatpack of a rigged mesh hair, and you can find this on the Marketplace for only L$1. Seriously.

So, if you’ve been adding it up, my totally girly outfit is a grand total of L$39, and I think that is a heck of a deal. Even better, I did all the hard work of putting it together for you! LOL. Alrighty, I must be off, I think it’s bedtime. I am being bombarded by family from out-of-town all day tomorrow, so I am really going to need to get all the sleep I can. If I don’t manage to make it back before the weekend is over, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend, and I will be back soon. Until next time, TTFN!

Long Day

Long Day

Well it’s been one of those days Fab Free. I hope yours has been better! The good news is I did manage to pick up a super cute group gift from Paper Arrow Co. that I am eager to share with you. This cute floral crop-top is the most recent group gift at Paper Arrow Co.
Long Day ClosePaper Arrow Co. currently has 7 total group gifts available to all group members. The group has a one time join fee of 250 lindens. This FREE mesh top comes in standard and some body-specific fit mesh sizes. Pru is wearing the “MaitreyaBeta” fit and it fits perfectly with the Maitreya Lara body. I’m not sure what draws me to floral prints, but most of the time I just love them!

To go with this cute top I also picked up these sorta coral colored pedal pushers at Paper Arrow Co. They are the Fifty Linden Friday item for Today Only. So I know this is very short notice, but if you like them there is still enough time to stop by and snatch them up for just 50 lindens. Along with this color, the mesh pants include a second pink polka dotted version as well. There is a second set for 50 lindens (also Today Only) with other colors if pink isn’t your thing.  Again sorry for such late notice on the FLF item.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Raspberry Sorbet I Think I Love You

Raspberry Sorbet

It’s Friday Fab Free’rs and I couldn’t be happier! Though the week went by quickly, for me anyway, it was still quite a week. Thankfully I have my excursions in Second Life to relax and enjoy some “me” time. While on said excursions in the world of SL, I came across the Sanarae event, and the many Lucky Boards there. As mentioned in my previous post, the free-to-join Sanarae group is required for the Lucky Boards. This adorably flirty dress from a shop called Sorbet is one of the many lucky board gifts at Sanarae.

I love love love the rock-a-billy pinup look to this dress! I really can’t say anything negative about this fully mesh dress. The colors are great, and I really like the flare of the skirt. This dress by Sorbet is honestly my personal favorite of the FREE Lucky Board prizes at Sanarae.

To emphasize the rock-a-billy part of this pinup look, I picked up the April group gift from EMO-tions. This retro pony with bandanna and rolled bangs is just too perfect. The EMO-tions group is FREE to join, making this fun hairstyle FREE as well. It comes in the blonde tones, and 4 color options for the bandanna. Also you can pick up a set of bangs, and some hair-base appliers for FREE at EMO-tions. Don’t forget to wear your group tag!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL Biker Hunt 2Good Morning Fabulous Fans! It looks to be another excellent weekend for getting out and around Second Life to do some hunting. It’s really the best way to discover some new stores you haven’t heard of before, find some new places in Second Life, AND come away with lots of stuff to boot.

Speaking of boots… two hunts where you might find some are the Biker Hunt and the Medieval Fantasy Hunt. Both of those titles say “boots” to me, though I haven’t actually browsed through the prize pics. Seriously… I really do enjoy a good set of boots. They’re way better than, oh, say… loafers.

So check out all the hunts below. I’m sure there is one that will appeal to you.

You say you’re new to hunting? Need help learning the ropes?
Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.
