Formal… with a chance of dragons

Hello and happy Tuesday, my FabFree folks!

tiffanyjpg_001

After several posts of cute and casual, I was starting to feel the need to remind myself what classy and elegant felt like. And as luck would have it. I found just the thing while I was shopping, of all places…. the Thrift Shop. If you haven’t been ‘in the know’, the Thrift Shop is a regular event and this round began on August 8th and runs until August 29th. That’s 22 days of 50% ( or so ) off the gathered designers and two massive rows of Gacha machines for us addicts.

I found this gorgeous purple evening gown in Tiffany’s Designs’ booth not for 50% off… but for FREE. This is the Lavish Mesh dress in purple and it’s free for everyone, no group needed. You get the five standard sizes and all this elegance.

The other thing I had to have from the Thrift Shop was this wonderful little dragon ear cuff. I hesitated to show him off with such a formal dress then I thought, yeah… that’s something I’d wear together in real life…. ‘Cause you know, you can’t get too stuffy when you’re going formal. ;)

This is the ‘Dragovar Ear Cuff’ from Ecru and he is only 10L at the Thrift Shop. The little dragon comes with both a right ear and a left ear version and a HUD with eight metallic colors. He is clearly meant to be worn with ‘human’ type ears but a little futzing with the edit controls and I had him fit to my own pointy ears easily enough. I have a feeling I won’t be taking him off any time soon.

You have until the 29 of August to go check out the Thrift Shop so don’t delay!

Envy Me…

She’s classic, elegant… and the life of the party. The gentlemen all want to dance with her… and the ladies all envy her…

Envy Me [1]

And if you stop by Junbug‘s quick as can be, you can pick up the Lady Crawley gown in Envy, and be envied too, because Junbug is celebrating 10,000 Facebook likes and 4,500 Group Members with this lovely formal mesh gown as their in-store gift!

Envy Me [2]

… and she has that certain touch of je ne sais quoi that makes those in the room pause… perhaps stare…

Or maybe it’s the breathtaking jewelry that bedecks her slender neck and wrists… which can be yours as well if you drop by Chop Zuey and pick up their newest Group Gift! This To The Daisy Grey Set (which includes a stunning necklace, ring, bracelets, and earrings) is breathtakingly detailed and perfect for any formal occasion!

SL Weddings – A Sure Sign That You Ignore Your Friends’ Advice!

tiftux2_001

Weddings…on Second Life you only get married six or seven times a year. If that were the case in real life, no one would rent tuxes. They would be part of our regular wardrobe. I know, sometimes SL marriages do work, occasionally in spectacular fashion. It’s that hope that keeps a lot of us going, and going, and going- (much to the dismay of our friends). My point is: the longer you are here on Second Life, the more impossible it is not to become partnered in some way to someone you care about. When that happens, you must have something fantastic to wear.

Tiffany’s Designs have recently changed their monthly group gift. Previously, it was a beautiful white suit that I wear often when I wander around the grid. This time, they have outdone even that gorgeous garment! The Mae Men’s Wedding Suit *Paris consists of two pieces meant to be worn together, so it is simple to wear. Each part is offered in five Mesh sizes to help make the fit just plain easy. The first piece is the jacket, which is black and nicely textured, complete with long tails. The remaining piece is the rest of the tux including the shirt, tie, pants and waistcoat in one combined garment. When worn, it is an elegant tux that will turn heads, whether you are standing at the altar or slow dancing with someone you adore. The Tiffany’s Designs group is not free (it will set you back 50L), but the quality of the gifts make it well worth it!

tiftux3_001

This August is another great month to be a guy on Second Life. Currently, running is the fourteen store Fashion Play For Men Hunt. The eyes I choose to wear with this tux are Fashion Eyes – Charm, the Fashion Play For Men Hunt prize from Inkheart . They are light gray with a slight greenish tint. They look pretty realistic and I am very pleased with them. One nice thing about Inkheart . is they participate in a lot of hunts and are quite generous with their gifts. The Fashion Play For Men Hunt prizes cost 1L each and are expected to be out all month. As if that’s not enough, starting August 29th is the Men’s Only Hunt 6 which should have over sixty participating merchants. I can hardly wait!

Second Life, where romance blooms all year around! (Amazing how fertile the soil is when so much fertilizer is laid down first.) Seriously, part of SL is the romance and mystery of blossoming relationships, and if you choose not to take the time for a romantic dance every so often, you are missing out on a great deal of fun. Go pick up some seriously dashing clothes and give it a shot. Your Second Life just might become even more amazing. That’s it for now, my friends. See you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars

This week was a twice in a blue moon week! As I have several special gifts to show you, two of which are from “Moons”.

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [1]

Your first stop will be at PurpleMoon Creations to pick up this stunning gown. The group is 50L to join but so worth it considering that the gifts (like this gown with its gorgeous detailing around the neck) are stunning and free once you join. This gown also includes glove appliers for Slink Physique and Omega as well, and not only the standard fitted mesh sizes but also a fitted mesh dress too!

My next “Moon” was Moon Hair where I got lucky with the Lucky Letter Boards as my letter came up! My gorgeous hair (called Spit at the Stars) is on the boards there at present in the back room. The Boards require the group which is 100L to join, but again, its a group well worth joining. Not only do you get access to the Lucky Letter boards, but also to many lovely present and past gifts which are setting on the counter in the Main room. Lots of beautiful new hairs for you! This Lucky Letter Board hair was in Naturals 1 and it is snazzy!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [2]

For a look this good I needed some terrific jewelry, which I was able to find over at Lazuri. There are some items out that require the group tag to pick up, but if you look off to the left of those, this Perlline Necklace Set is completely FREE – no group required – and color change too! There is a matching set of earrings too (they are hidden under my hair) and the earrings are just as pretty.

If you get the chance, take time to visit PixelArt Photogardens where I took these pictures. The scenery is stunning!

See you next Sunday!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL The CollectionGood morning Fabulous Friends! There are lots of fun hunts to tell you about, including two which just started today… The Collection (a Madpea event) and The Nishi Mall Crawl (a sim hunt with lots of prizes).

There are many more hunts to choose from of course, and the themes abound. Rock music, bowling, marriage, fashion, and birds, are just some of them. I’m sure you can find a theme that’s “the one” for you. Have a powwow with your friends and decide which one to go on!

New to hunting? Both FabFree and HUNT SL have pages full of tips to help you get going. I recommend them to novice and veteran hunters alike.

Plenty of fish in the sea

Hello FabFree Folks! Thursday just keeps rolling along. I do love a sale and 45 Linden Sales always has something I just gotta have.

Plenty of Fish in the Sea

This week, The Broken Glass Boutique put this amazing little sea – inspired dress out for the 45 Linden Sale. This is the “She’s A Catch” dress, earring and bangles. I love the creative layering of the dress. The under dress is cute by itself but then you add the separate ‘fishing net’ over dress and ..wow! I guess you could wear just the net if you are daring enough. ;)   You also get the matching earrings and the bangles to make a sweet outfit.

The 45 Linden Sales items go out on Wednesday evenings so hurry over to get your sale on!

Just Say ‘I Do’

Hello hello, Fab Free Folks! I hope this brand new August is treating you well. With the start of August we have the start of a bunch of new Hunts including the 1L  ‘Marry Me Hunt’ from Nefeli Events.

Just Say "I Do"
I picked this Hunt because I am such a hopeless romantic. My real life wedding anniversary is in August so dressing up as a bride again in second life was just too much fun. I started with the dress, of course. This is the Chiffon Sparkle Wedding Gown from Kitty Shape Wears. You get both the dress and the shimmery veil in the Hunt prize. I know this is a wedding dress but the clean elegant lines would make this a lovely evening gown for any occasion.     Just Say "I Do"

 

I added some glamor and glitz with the “Beloved” jewelry set from Footpaw Industries. Your one Linden will score you the necklace, the earrings, two bracelets, the tiara, and two hair sticks. And again, this is lovely wedding wear but you could easily wear the set for any dress up occasion.

Now I just needed the perfect back drop for my new finery. Darkmatter stepped up and granted my wish with the gorgeous Lover’s Bench. The sweet little retreat comes loaded with three couples poses just right for photos.

The Marry Me Hunt runs until August 31st so hurry down the aisle!

Princess for a day

Princess for a dayI have 3 dresses fit for a Princess weather you like mesh or system layers I have something for every Princess today. So lets have a trip thru the castle on this lovely Saturday!

I started my morning wandering thru the castle in the divine Jewel periwinkle mesh dress that is a FREE subscriber gift at The Crystal Clothing Company. That is right this Princess didn’t even have to give up a group spot for this dress. Tho should you also like to join their FREE group you can pick up this dress in pink too. Every Princess has to have a tiara and I found a grand deal on mp for this dainty ^^Swallow^^ tiara, 1L 3 colors! It fits perfectly on top of this FREE gift from Amacci Hair. Alva is a lovely tight bun with a full color hud and it totally FREE no group to join.

Princess for a day

The garden looked so lovely I had to wander out there for a stroll in this delicate mesh dress that I found at JLZ fashion it is there prize for The Around the Grid in 80 days hunt. I opted to hunt for the scroll which meant this dress only set me back 1L. You have the other option of buying it without hunting for 25L. It is a good deal either way. Btw I did kiss the frog and alas he didn’t turn into my Prince, maybe next time!

Princess for a day

Having changed for the 3rd time this Princess is ready to retire into the study in this beautiful system layer dress which is the FREE GG over at The White Armory (TWA) this week. But today is the last day so while staying poised rush over there right now! The group is FREE to join and there is a new GG every sunday so if you miss this dress grab the next one it will be equally pretty. This is a group worth staying in, here is another example why from Pru. The furniture is another prize from The Around the Grid in 80 days hunt. You can pick up the whole set for 1L or 25L at Lilith’s Den.

Here are the details of what is in this Princess’s wardrobe so you too can be a pretty Princess for a day!
