She Don’t Know…

She Don't Know She's Beautiful

Hello Fabulouses and Happy Saturday!  Ripley and I are about to set off on a camping trip, but I couldn’t leave without telling you all about a stunning formal gown that I picked up for just 2 Linden dollars as a prize in the You’re Beautiful Hunt.

She’s Beautiful

I just love the color scheme of this outfit from The Sissy Bar!  The soft lavender hue of the material is accented with a delicate floral design.  Featuring a floor length skirt that just kisses the ground, this gown will have you feeling elegant as you sweep across the dance floor.  An x-shaped detail emphasizes the gown’s waistline, while an off-the-shoulder cut allows your shoulders to soak in some sun shine (or moonlight).  Just in case you get a little chilly, the designer also included a translucent shawl to wrap around yourself.  The folder contains versions for classic as well as mesh body avatars.  All you have to do to add this lovely frock to your inventory is locate the hunt object, which is a mirror, and pay the teensy 2 Linden dollar fee.  There’s a handy hint giver in the store to point you in the right direction.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic in XS, S, M, L, XL (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP
  • Shawl for Classic, Mesh and Ocacin

We’re off to the mountains.  Until my next post, happy hunting!

Super Chic!

There really are a whole bunch of cute gifts just waiting for you over at the round of Très Chic, and to grab them all you have to do is join the group for FREE!  Here’s what I’m showing you today:

  • FREE dress by Insomnia sized for Maitreya, Freya and Hourglass (comes in flowered and non-flowered versions)
  • FREE hair by Fabia that comes in a fatpack of colours and includes a style HUD

It may be a bit busy over there for a few days, but with a bit of patience you should make it in soon enough.  This round of Très Chic runs until June 10th so you’ve got some time to grab your goodies!

Forsythia

Forsythia

I’m back on the yellow dress wearing train!  I can’t help but be cheered by this happy hue these days.  It makes me think of all the gorgeous forsythia that is in bloom around my parts of the world, even though the buds are just starting to make their appearance.  You can’t go wrong with a bit of yellow!

Belle de Jour

There’s a new group gift at Belle Époque!  One of my fave creators is spoiling us yet again with this lovely structured strapless pencil-length dress, sized for Maitreya bodies.  It’s almost like wearing really pretty armour for the modern day!  I got mine by joining the Belle Époque group for 10 little Lindens, and this pretty thing was all mine.  There are a bunch of other gifts there too, all more lovely than the last.  You can also pick up a Fab Free group gift while you’re at it!

Here’s to a Spring season full of golden hues,

Elegant

Elegant Evening

I love my tee shirts and jeans and beat up old sneakers as much as the next girl. But isn’t it fun to get a little fancy once in a while? I like to be reminded I can be an elegant lady on her way to a lovely evening out with her gentleman. And I found a gorgeous little lace dress that’s perfect for that evening…. plus, it’s free!

Evening Elegance

This is the ‘Sylvana’ dress from NY Designs and it’s one of the several current Group Gifts available. All of the gifts are awesome but the lace and pretty sleeves really called to me today. Sylvana comes with a HUD with six jewel tone choices. I have a feeling this dress will be in my regular rotation or any time I want to be a little extra pretty.

Sizes Included

  • Altamura
  • Belleza
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

The Ringmaster & His Apprentice


The Ringmaster and his Apprentice

Hello Fab Free, step right up! The Ringmaster and his lovely apprentice welcome you to the circus, or more accurately, the blog! You guessed it, I’ve teamed up with that man of mine again to bring you some fabulous finds. This time we did a bit of the Jester’s Revenge Hunt and picked up the male and female hunt prizes at Mishmash. The Jester’s Revenge Hunt is a free hunt, and it lasts until April 30th.

Though definitely not your typical everyday wear, I thought these free matching outfits by Mishmash were a lot of fun. They would be great for roleplay, or themed parties. Each of the outfits is a separate prize. You’ll be hunting a little gold nugget. Both outfits come in several sizes. The men’s suit also includes an alpha layer.

Men’s Sizes Included: Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink Male, TMP, Standard Mesh (xs-XL)

Women’s Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, TMP, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

M Hint – Zilla has a joke for you

F Hint – Perhaps I can give you a hand

P.S. Make sure you check out Blue’s credits for some freebie finds for the guys!

Here are the details!

Petals on the wind

Petals on the wind

I was on a wander yesterday on a Hunt and I ended up over at the Springtime Harambee Charity Market. Now I thought… what’s a gorilla have to do with Spring? But I found out that “Harambee” means “Pulling Together” in Kenyon. I dug a little deeper and learned that the ‘pulling together’ harambee translates as is all peoples, regardless of race or language coming together for the good of all. It’s such a beautiful thought!

Petal Perfect

As I went around the little market, I couldn’t help but see all the free gifts set out by the venders. And when I saw the gift from Kastle Rock Couture I was so excited. As I expected, KRC has given us a truly lovely gown. This is the ‘Titania Gown’ in petal pink. You also get the beautiful head jewels too. The gown comes in two versions: one with a subtle glow and one without. Just the thing for wanders through the fantasy forests, don’t you think?

Sizes Included

  • Mesh Sizes XS-XL

A quick note… when you land, just follow the trail of blossoms to the Market!

Extraordinary

Extraordinary

As some of you may know, I am an opinionated sort of person. I have little issue expounding on most any subject, especially when I have strong feelings on such subject. That said, Julianna threated to lock me in a closet if I made my true feelings about most of the free offerings for the men of Second Life. So let me merely say, Thank You, Contraption. Thank you for going above and beyond for the men of L’Homme with this gift.

Not Just Another Ball Cap

This is the Jasper Waistcoat and shirt and it’s the completely free gift for the L’Homme reader’s Group. I am genuinely impressed with the style and the attention to details in this piece. The Jasper Waistcoat is offered in store in several other colors at a reasonable cost. And you may be inclined to indulge. Yet, Contraption has given us a superb piece, in a color we want. It’s a high quality gift and I for one am very happy with it.

The waistcoat will look best with high waisted pants, especially if you are going for a clean cut Steam or authentic Victorian look. Contraption has also included a cummerbund applier HUDs for Belleza, Miatreya, Omega and Signature.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Signature
  • SLink

A quick note – Contraption has included some Female sizes for the waistcoat. The breast sliders will not work for the more well endowed and the piece has not been actually configured for women.  This is part of the note from the designer – We’ve only included female sizes for those who would like to pull off a certain look for our own friends.

The Magic of a Red Dress

Hey You With The Red Dress On

Happy Weekend, Fab Free! I hope you are finding time to relax and take it easy. Ripley and I discovered a new-to-us store this week called Celestinas Weddings. The generous designer is currently offering this stunning outfit as a free gift to members of the Celestinas group, which is free to join. Everything I’m wearing in my photo, from the gorgeous diamond earrings to my high heels, is included in the gift, plus a really pretty bouquet to hold that I chose not to wear for my pic.

Everything for Free

Although this looks like a gorgeous gown, Valentina is actually composed of two separates – a lacy, long sleeved top and an elegant, full length, curve-hugging skirt. The crimson-hued fabric of the skirt has a slight sheen and is accented with lighter red areas which resemble drops of dew on rose petals. I love the look of the slightly flared hemline, which sweeps just above the floor. The sheer top features a scalloped edge. The two components pair beautifully together, but can also be mixed and matched with other items in your wardrobe. Large, dangling heart shaped diamond earrings and delicate gem studded heels, also tucked into the gift folder, complete the look. A bouquet of roses and babies’ breath tied with a simple red ribbon can be added to your left hand if you so desire. To pick up a copy of this free ensemble for yourself, teleport over to Celestinas Weddings, activate the group tag, and tap the vendor.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya and Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass

Until my next post, happy shopping!
