A Stroll Through Paris

Visiting Paris_001

If only I could teleport to Paris for a stroll in real life too…

I was feeling restless after a week of not being able to blog because of real life responsibilities and so I picked up a dress at a new-to-me shop that my hunting buddy mentioned and teleported over to Paris 1900 for a stroll around Hyde Park. I took the picture above to show off my new formal wear. Isn’t it lovely! Almost as lovely as Paris!

The Dress

You can have this dress for free too! Just stop by MH Unique Design don the group tag (the group is free to join) and pick up this beautiful group gift. There are several other group gifts out as well.

The thing that jumped out at me was the colossal number of lucky letter boards at the store! I couldn’t believe my eyes! Your letter was sure to be up on at least one of the boards somewhere and it was sure to be your lucky day. I picked up several lucky letter board outfits while I was there as there as well that were also free and will try to blog those for you as quick as I can!

In the meantime, this dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Catching My Breath

FreedoveRebelHope
Hello there Fabulous Readers 🙂

January tends to be a pretty slow month for gifts in Second Life, making our work here at FabFree a little more tricky… but it is an excellent opportunity for us to catch our breath and revisit shops and events that may have been neglected over the holiday rush.  There are plenty of wonderful gifts out there, we just need to find them!

A Vision In Blue… Or Red

This beautiful navy blue floor length gown is one of my recent finds at The Free Dove by !Rebel Hope.  It comes in XXS-L standard mesh sizes and includes the alpha layers as well as an additional red version of the dress too…  but speaking of Christmas – I’m tired of wearing red at the moment, so I went with the blue :).  The packaging says it was released in 2017, but I have no idea how I missed this stunning find!  The Free Dove group is free to join.  Have a look around and see what else you can find!

Take a Chill Pill

Chill Pill_001

Special Reminder!

In case you’ve forgotten, Wasabi Pills is having a 60 – 80% off hair sale on older hair styles. Love first told us the big news in December in her post She’s a Snowflake Sweetie. I wanted to remind you before the sale is over!

Once you get to the store, just take the teleport upstairs to a wide selection of both rigged and unrigged hair styles to choose from. I picked up the “Betty” hairstyle in the picture above in a pack of reds for just 50L. I could have picked up a full fatpack of colors for just 350L if I had wanted to! For a gorgeous style like this, you can’t even tell it’s an “older style”!

I’m not sure how much longer this sale will last. So don’t wait! Get to Wasabi Pills TODAY and shop to your heart’s content!

From hair… to dress.

I am loving the Womenstuff Hunt as you might have guessed, as I’ve already featured some of the gifts I’ve found in posts {here}, {here}, and {here}. Today I wanted to show off a pretty formal cocktail dress that I picked up for free while I was out with my usual hunting date. He picked this one up ahead of time, and alerted me to the fact that it was a beauty that I shouldn’t pass up! Just hunt down that little red t-shirt icon at S&B main-store!

We have a date for later where I plan to put this free dress from S&B to good use! Included with this dress is a color change hud and multiple sizes for your mesh body needs.

Dress colors included:

  • Red and Black (shown)
  • Blue and Black
  • Pink and Black
  • Purple and Black
  • Moss and Black
  • Charcoal and Black

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Classic Mesh XS – XL

Down to There

Down to There

Oh, you know how it is, getting invited to balls and galas every other minute.  Can’t keep my calendar clear for half a second these days… Or maybe it’s just me enjoying some me time and posing by a fountain wearing a free gown that is cut down to there…  Most likely the second option, come on people…

Emerald Stunner

Yep, this gown is absolutely free.  No, I’m not joking.  This gorgeous emerald gown is a free group gift at the new Sense event.  You can pick it up by joining the Sense Group for free, and clicking ever so delicately on the vendor (or just mash your mouse, I know I did…ha!).   I love the daring cut, as well as the sparkly bits.  So prettyyyy.  Sense is open until February 8th!

Sizes

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

18-01-16

Just 5 more minutes…

Guys, we’ve all been there… Hearing those magic words “I’ll be just 5 more minutes“. Translated into real time, that’s a minimum of 30 minutes.  I might as well find something to keep myself occupied while I wait.

Not blue…

My formal wear not only looks good but didn’t cost a lot. While hunting the All’stuff Hunt, I came across the Blue with Black Formal Tails, the FREE hunt prize at  69 Park Ave GQ. The suit Comes complete with the jacket, pants, shoes, tie pin, and a top hat and watch (both not shown) in sizes XS-XL

Finishing touches…

I added the Male Bento Gloves, the FREE group gift still available at E-Clipse Design. I also found a pair of Wireframe Glasses, a FREE gift (don’t confuse it with the group gift) at Heth Haute Couture. I also found a 1L Snazzy Walking Stick on the marketplace.

Did I say 30 minutes? I have a feeling it will be more like an hour…

Queen for a Day

Queenz
Oh Hello There! Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I’m excited you’re here. I’m also pretty darn excited about this dress, and the little clutch I found to go with it. It’s Saturday and I’m so ready for a night out, and now I’ve something sexy to wear. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how to get the dress and clutch without breaking your linden bank.

Queenz

I think Pru looks like a sultry Queen in this FREE group gift dress from Queenz. It is undeniably revealing, however I think it’s equally elegant looking with the long sleeves and soft dark fabric. The gown comes in several mesh sizes and includes a color change hud with 5 color variations. At this time the Queenz group is FREE to join making this fabulous dress absolutely FREE, all you need is group space.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody Curvy, Slink Hourglass

Swallow

The one irksome thing about most gowns, no pockets. That does however give a girl an excuse to get a matching clutch! I stumbled across this cute studded heart-shaped clutch at Swallow. It’s one of their more recent group gifts, there are several currently available. This gift includes 2 of the clutches, they are identical except one attaches to the right hand and the other to the left hand. Which doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it really does make things so much easier. There is also a color change hud with 12 color options for the main part of the clutch, 4 color options for the hardware, and 4 options for the spiked studs. Currently the Swallow group is 40 linden to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Fit for a Lady

Enchanted_001_001

Roleplay is always near and dear to my heart, so when I find an outfit or dress for a bargain that I can share with you dear Fabulouses, I am thrilled! I was opening my Womenstuff Hunt gifts and ran across a gown that would be perfect for roleplay and wanted to share it with you.

Fit for a Lady

I stopped by Tiffany Designs and after a little hunting for the free red t-shirt, I picked up their Womenstuff gift and brought it home to unpack. It’s a lovely formal gown that is suitable for any formal occasion but also perfect for roleplay settings as well. It includes the gown I am showing above, as well as a white fur shoulder stole, a gold necklace, and long flowing sleeves. I’m only wearing the dress itself for the purpose of the picture.

Dress size fits:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Fitted Mesh
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

The Cold Never Bothered Us Anyways

The Cold Never Bothered Us Anyways
It may be minus a billion outside, but he and I couldn’t be more oblivious to it!

Frosted Snowflakes

At Sweet Intoxication you can hunt down a snowflake icon for The Frosting Hunt 2 this month (ends on January 31st) and gain yourself the matching outfits you see Carson and I wearing tonight.  There are two hunt icons hidden priced at 1L each, one pink for the ladies and one blue for the men.  You’ll find them both in the same spot, but make sure you pick up the right colour for your gender or you’ll be spending 1L you don’t need to!

For Her

The prize for her is a very shimmery long formal gown in ice blue called “Butterfly Gown”.  My favourite feature of this gown is the detailed butterfly at the back.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Venus & Isis

For Him

He will receive the handsome shirt and vest combo called “Ethan Shirt” in a matching shade of blue.  This item could even be dressed down with a pair of jeans and worn any time!

Sizes Included:

  • ADAM
  • Aesthetic
  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Classic Sizes XS-XL

Setting A Formal Winter Scene

No need to fight the lag for a romantic night of dancing!  Simply head to The Second Life Marketplace and pick up Emma’s Winter Ballroom Skybox by Emma’s @ Blue Moose!  I took this photo inside the beautiful skybox and this is just one little corner.  There is a chandelier in the center that you can turn on and off, and it is actually 20 X 20, so you’ll have plenty of dancing room.  Rez a little snow and some sparkle lights and you’ll be set!  Don’t even worry about the prims… it has a land impact of 4!  The price?  FREE!
