A great pair of shoes can change your life…..

Just ask Cinderella!

Hey FabFree-ers! I just couldn’t leave well enough alone, I guess.

A great pair of shoes can change your life.....

Plus, all the cool kids are doing extra posts with free and almost free shoes… so here’s mine too. All of these shoes are from the Black or White Hunt 2 which goes on until January 31st. There are two paths, one easy the White Path and one hard, the Black Path. All the participating designers have put out two prizes, one for each Path so I’ll note which Path the shoes are on. Plus, this is a 0L hunt!

  1. Reese – Wicked (FREE/0l/Black or White Hunt 2 prize on the Black Path)
  • If you are hunting both paths, you don’t want to miss the White path prize from Wicked because it matches these gorgeous heels perfectly! Reese fits Mesh avatars “High Feet”.

2. Skully Sneakers – DemotiK(FREE/0L/Black or White Hunt 2 prize on the White Path)

  • These unisex sneakers will thrill your goth heart a little bit. They come with three mesh rigged sizes and one unrigged pair for Classic avatars.

3. Waya – Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes (FREE/0L/Black or White Hunt 2 prize on the Black Path)

  • Waya comes with a resize script built in and it’s own alpha layer for a great fit if you’re mesh or Classic.

4. Gelsey – Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes (FREE/0L/Black or White Hunt 2 prize on the White Path)

  • I adore these cute little flats! They are , however, for System feet. But the alpha layer and the shoes base makes for a perfect fit.

“Give a Girl a Great Pair of Shoes…..

… and she can conquer the world!” – Marilyn Monroe

I know y’all are here for the shoes…. so let’s jump straight in!

Give a girl a great pair of shoes

  1. Leather Boots – Belle Epoque (FREE/0L/Group Gift group is 50L to join)
  •  These boots come in three colors, the grey I’m showing, brown and a charcoal black. They don’t come with an alpha layer but it didn’t take much effort to find one in the inventory that fit.

2.  +  3.  Kawaii Sneakers  + Mary Jane – Sweet Tea Couture (FREE/0L/Group Gift group is 100L to  join)

  • The super cute little sneakers were Sweet Tea’s entry for the Kawaii Hunt. Now they are on the Group Gift Vender board. They come with both SLink flat feet and system feet versions.  The fee to join the group is 100L but there are a ton of past gifts available on that Vender Board so you’ll recoup it very quickly. Plus, Sweet Tea is one of the more generous designers setting out lots of specials and group gifts.  Gifts just like #3 the September Mary Janes. They’re on the Vender Board as well. The gift comes with SLink, Belleza, Maitreya and Classic Avatar versions. Oh and one ‘heads up’, you’ll need to pay the vender 1L which you will immediately get right back.

 

Give a girl a great pair of shoes

4. Reindeer Cuteness Princess Boots – Dirty Princess (FREE/0L/ Group Gift group is free to join)

  • I can’t be very professional about this pair of boots. Cause I love ’em. The details are wonderful and the build is just amazing. Plus, they’re free for Dirty Princess group members. The Dirty Princess shop is more like a small SIM and it’ full of great bargains but the boots take the cake. The boots come in system friendly un-rigged, SLink, SLink H.G., The Mesh Project and Maitreya versions.

5. Valeria – Miss Canning (FREE/0L/Group Gift group is free to join)

  • Wouldn’t these be perfect for Spring? And you know that’s right around the corner. Valeria fits my SLink High Feet but I bet they’d fit most mesh high feet too. Miss Canning’s group is free to join and there a bunch of past gifts available. Well worth the trip.

6. Dash – Euphoria Couture (FREE/0L/Hunt Prize for Newify Your Body Hunt) 

  • Who can turn down a sleek pair of stiletto heels? I sure can’t. Plus they’re free to hunt down. The Newify Your Body Hunt runs until January 31st so don’t delay!

Banner Free Dove ~ Tiffany DesignsGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, January 12.

The Tiffany in-store hunt at The Free Dove is topping the chart this week. Just looking at the outfits pictured on the hunt poster I can see why. This looks like a fabulous collection of gifts that every woman will want to get in on. This hunt is FREE.

While you’re there, you can pick up some Iconica shoes too. Check The Free Dove Iconica Shoe Hunt… currently number 6 on the chart.

There are plenty of other cool hunts too. Check the list and start clicking!

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

I’m bringing you a quickie, not because I’m in a hurry, but because once you see this gift you’ll want to grab it quick! I think the offer will be out for several days but it’s just too gorgeous not to snap up fast!

PurpleMoon Creations has just put out their new group gift, and it is a stunner! This Royal Queen gown in black with silver accents and the fabulous faux fur stole is perfect for January ballroom dancing (or any formal occasion). The ‘body’ portion of the dress comes in system layers — or if you are a mesh body fan like me, all the appliers you need (the gloves too). There is also a ‘no gloves option’ if you don’t want to wear the gloves, and the fur stole is optional as well, making this gown totally versatile (I like the idea of the no gloves version for later spring and summer wear myself!)

So snag your ride down to PurpleMoon! The gift is FREE with your group tag (the group is 50L to join), but PurpleMoon is always generous with the gifts, so you won’t regret joining!

Happy Friday, FabFree Folks!

Red Siren

I am still on my red kick as you can see. But how could I not be when Ana Markova Designs has this gorgeous red dress out for a New Year’s Gift? This is the ‘Siren’ dress and it is a stunner. You can pick this party-ready dress for free with your group tag. The Ana Markova group does have a one time fee of 100L but there are a ton of group gifts and past group gifts out and ready to pick up.

Red Siren

While you’re picking up your dress, you can hunt down these fantastic shoes to match your new dress. Love showed us here before but I thought you might like to see again. ;)  These are the ‘Chained heels’ for SLink High feet from Ana Markova and they are part of the Peace on Earth Hunt. Which means they’re free! But, you only have till January 9 to pick them up, so hurry hurry!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL colorsofthewindhuntThe number of hunts has definitely fallen off since Christmas. I think all the hunt organizers are exhausted from the holidays. That doesn’t mean there aren’t some good hunts out there however. Some of the winter themed hunts are still on and a whole bunch of Valentine’s Day hunts are just over the horizon. Second Life residents love their… well… love!

So take a gander at the current offerings and get hunting. As usual, The Free Dove has a nice set of store-wide hunts that are worth checking out. Going in the wee hours of the morning is good because The Free Dove does get crowded.

Holly

Hey again, FabFree-ers!

Holly

It seems like I am just running on last minutes today. I’ve got another ‘catch it before it’s gone’ item for you but it is too pretty not to show off. This is the ‘Winterberry Holly’ dress and it’s from More Than Ever. This sassy little number is the Group Gift for December but thankfully it’s still available for us slow pokes. However, I have it on good authority that it won’t be around too much longer. I really love the details in the dress. The texture of the skirt is just spot on. Even when you zoom way in. Plus, it’s great to see a December gift that is wearable all year round. Winterberry comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has it’s own alpha layer, Another little plus… it’s free for group members and the group is free to join! Can’t beat it!

Don’t miss out… hurry over  to More Than Ever and pick it up.

A Highlands Lady

Hey there, FabFree folks!

RennHunt_001

Even as the new year is starting up, some things are winding down. I almost missed the nifty little Holiday Hunt over on Renaissance Island. The good folks at Renaissance Island have hidden 22 gifts all over the town each one priced at 0L. My favorite has to be this gorgeous tartan gown, Bayberry from G. Sloane. It has a nice holiday feel if you need something for next year’s December role plays but it isn’t overly Christmas-y. I added a picture so you can see the gown without the stole.

RennHunt_002

I added the lovely ‘Silver Fox Stole’ from Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions to make my new gown a little more snow – friendly. This elegant stole comes with a longer scarf version for your gentleman too.

Don’t be intimidated by the idea of a ‘Sim wide’ Hunt, this hunt is fun and easy and the organizers provided a great list of hints you can grab from the Hunt poster at the landing point.  What you can’t do is wait around. This Hunt ends on January 6th so hurry over!

A Thousand Snowy Stars

“Star light, Star bright… first star I see tonight…”

I’m not usually one for making wishes or resolutions, but with New Year’s Eve nearly here, I thought maybe I should be thinking on it. It snowed heavily where I live. Ice too. The storms put much of my sleepy city to a stand still… and while there is always a beauty to such things, there is also a definite danger. I resolve to be thankful for all I have — a warm bed being one of those things.

This Frozen Star 1

There are just two days left till New Years, and also just a few days left to pick up your Peace on Earth prizes. The hunt ends January 9th. If you stop by Baboom you can get this amazing Snowy Dress for FREE. It comes in one piece and all the standard sizes and has a lovely lustrous effect I just loved. Well worth the stop. Don’t delay! Get to hunting those globes!

This Frozen Star 2

If you didn’t find it… there are just two days left to enjoy the Winter Gacha Festival which ends December 31st. I picked up my lovely hair called Hosanna by [e] elikatira for a mere 50L per spin.

And last but not least… one final reminder! If you haven’t picked up your goodies from the Chop Zuey advent… hurry over there ASAP! They are all still out for the pickings, but I’m not sure how much longer you’ll be able to enjoy the gifts. My simply stunning A Thousand Stars Set pictured above (it includes a texture change necklace, bracelet, earrings, and barrettes) was one of the group advent gifts, yours FREE with your group tag (350L to join). So hurry before you miss out!
