Casablanca Style

Casablanca Style

The Fame and Fortune Hunt… doesn’t cost a fortune. In fact, it’s a 1L hunt. And my 1L snagged me this pretty snazzy suit which I then used to tour the remake of Casablanca here in Second Life. The suit is pretty perfect for it.

This Garonga Men’s Suit created by Sparrow by Design comes in all the standard mesh sizes and is of an excellent cut. What really impressed me though was the textures. The one piece suit has a sheen on the pants that shimmers and changes in the light as your avatar moves. I’ve never actually seen anything quite like it on another men’s suit. All in all for 1L, this is not only flashy… it qualifies as old style Casablanca classy. It’s certainly not a modern suit, but it is stylish and well worth hunting down.

Your Friday Hunt Report

Give Me Spring

Give Me Summer

Paisley Daisy has their April group gift out… and it is a stunning floral dress that just makes me want to sing! This pretty gown is mesh in all the standard sizes, but also includes a pretty flexi skirt overlay for some added flair and ‘glitter’. It adds a lovely touch. The gift is FREE with your group tag. The group membership is a one time fee of 100L but Paisley Daisy offers monthly group gifts to offset the cost and this one gown alone is worth your fee.

Give Me Summer 2

I stopped by ECCO to see what was new. There are several lovely new gifts at this quality jewelry store. I picked up the SL Free & Offers Gift of the LuLu Earrings, as they matched my new gown just perfectly. These earrings are FREE with your FREE SL Free & Offers group tag and come in three metal choices (gold, silver, and black), making this a generous and versatile FREE gift.

Enjoy your Friday!

Awareness is a good thing

Hello, FabFree-ers!

Awareness is a good thing

I hope y’all are enjoying your weekend full of Spring hunts. I sure am! One of my favorite hunts is back this year: The Autism Awareness Hunt. I love anything that raises awareness of all of the folks on the “Spectrum” since I have two dear friends with little ones with Autism.

First on my list is this cute and sassy dress from Grumble. This is the “Strapless Zipper Mini dress” and it comes in FitMesh sizes XS-XL as well as SLink, Maitreya and Belleza versions.

I paired the dress with Livia’s “My Heart” nails, also for the Autism Awareness Hunt. ‘My Heart’ comes with six designs featuring the Autism Awareness signature blue and puzzle pieces. Livia has included appliers for SLink/Omega and Maitreya combo.

Awareness is a good thing

The twenty two stop FREE Autism Awareness Hunt runs until April 30th!

Princess Peach

Time for Tea Hello Hello Fab Free! I am very excited to show you these deliciously girly gacha goodies. An event called YouGatcha started April 1, and there are lots of fun inexpensive gachas to be played. If there is a theme to this event or the current round, I’m uncertain as to what it is. There are several amazing designers participating however, and wide variety of loot to be played for. Among the many designers participating in YouGatcha this month are Sweet Intoxication, and Tantalum.
Pretty in Peach It’s true I have really eclectic taste and in one form or another I like a little bit of everything. That said, there’s a part of my style personality adores ultra girly things, and especially pretty peachy pastel colors that are so popular right now. Pretty pastels are definitely on the menu in the form of cute heels and even cuter dresses when you play the Sweet Intoxication gacha machine at YouGatcha. The dress Pru is wearing comes in 3 lovely pastel shades, and there are matching heels to be had. Each dress comes in standard mesh sizes, and Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya fit. Also part of this gacha are these fun heels. Each pair of heels includes a Slink fit, Belleza fit, and TMP fit. Additionally the rare in this gacha is a necklace to create a complete look. As you can see from the photos, this dress is a perfect combination of sexy and girly, not to mention just short enough to be dangerous! The Sweet Intoxication gacha at YouGatcha is  75 lindens per play.

As I mentioned, Tanatalum is also participating in YouGatcha this month. They actually have 3 gacha machines, each with quality jewelry pieces. Pru played the good girl gacha from Tantalum at YouGatcha. This machine is 45 lindens per play and has a wide range of “mouth charms” each with cute adjectives one might use to describe a “good girl”. Pru got “Flirty” which is really beyond perfect for this look. It’s the very definition of flirty.

I really had fun with this look, I hope you like it! Here are the details, Enjoy!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Marketplace HuntGood morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, March 29.

The rather unique Marketplace Hunt has been very popular of late. In this hunt you don’t have to run around in-world. All the prizes are on the marketplace. All you need do is go from one marketplace store to the next and look for the specially marked items. It’s pretty cool.

If you’re still in bunny/egg mode, there are a few Easter hunts still on the grid, but don’t delay because these will be ending very soon.

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!

Lady of Unicorns

Heyya FabFree-ers!

Lady of Unicorns

I was roaming the Grid, checking out the Gachas and the fairs in my constant patrol for great bargains ( all for you my Dear Ones!) And my restless search got brought to a screaming halt by Junebug’s Gacha at The Gathering. I mean I may have let out a girly little… squeak.  But can you blame me? This is the gorgeous “18th Century Stays” gown  for 75L per play. The gown comes in the Standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and be sure to try the Demo before you play, I wore a slightly different size than I normally do. Plus, your Alpha layer is in the demo pack. There are fifteen colors and combinations of gowns to win and four Rare rings.

Oh, and my unicorn friends? They are from Half-Deer’s ‘Unicorn Story’ story Gacha at the Arcade. The Arcade is only open a few more days so if you need some magical friends too, hurry over.

The Gathering runs until April 10th and the Arcade ends on March 31st, so hurry over.

Go Strapless

Snapshot_002
Hello Fabulous ladies:). If you are in the market for a new formal gown, be sure to stop by Satus Inc. this weekend and check out the Strapless Party Gowns that are available in several colours for just 60L each for a very limited time.

I am wearing the beige today which I think is very classy but I also saw red, blue and black available if you feel a bit more daring.  In the box you will find sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and Fitmesh and mesh sizing as well.

An Easter Formal

I think my alt-er ego Loki felt bad about our earlier camping trip… because he took me for a sunrise formal dance this morning at a beautiful spot! We even wore matching formals… how cute is that! (Nope, I will never let him live it down!… I’m sure he’ll get me back later!)

An Easter Formal

Right now is the perfect time to be a member of Tiffany’s Designs for both men and women. For just 50L for your group membership, Ladies you can pick up this Emily gown in purple. It includes system layers as well as appliers for TMP, Maitreya, Omega, Slink, and Belleza, as well as a flexi skirt with a lovely flow and finish. You also get a set of gold jewelry (a necklace and earrings) which I am not showing in these pictures. This gift is FREE with your Tiffany’s membership. You will have to pay the gift terminal 1L to get the gift, but your 1L will be immediately refunded.

Your date can match you for your formal dance perfectly in his Rey suit from Tiffany’s in this fantastic purple color that is the exact same shade as the Emily gown. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and like the Emily gown is a FREE gift with Tiffany Designs group membership (50L group fee). So take your fella to Tiffany’s to pick up this amazing suit!

An Easter Formal 2

Chop Zuey has put out some fresh gifts for our Easter baskets and I wanted a touch of color for my dress and so I nabbed up this Sweetness set. The Sweetness Necklace is a FREE group gift (350L group membership required – but remember, gifts are frequent and plentiful!) but the earrings are a FREE to all gift as a lovely courtesy set out for FabFree members. You can just hop over to Chop Zuey and buy the matching earrings for 0L, no group slot required.

That’s it for now… I have a date and dance to enjoy. Happy Sunday!

An Easter Portrait in Watercolour

Happy Saturday, and it’s a long weekend to boot! I can’t believe it’s already the Easter weekend. You know what Easter means, right? All sorts of hunts here in SL! I discovered a really easy, and fairly large, Easter egg hunt, after receiving a notice from one of the participating stores. The German Land Holding Estate is hosting a Spring Fair, with lots of participating vendors, and to coincide with the Spring Fair, there is also an Easter egg hunt happening in and around the stalls. There are 103 eggs to find, each with a gift from the different stores. All you need to do is grab your free egg basket, put it on, and then wander around the stalls, clicking on free Easter eggs. You do have to be within 10M of an egg to pick it up, so no camming, and once you have picked up an egg, you will not be able to pick it up again. I managed to find 97 out of the 103…and let me tell you, there is some good stuff in these eggs!

The first gift I’m showing off is the absolutely gorgeous dress from Sweet E’s. This is the Water Colour Kate gown, and I really can’t express how much I am in love with this. The colours, the watercolour-like flower print, the rouching on the corset! It has to be one of the prettiest dresses I’ve put on in SL, and really wish I had one in RL. LOL. It is mesh, and comes in 4 sizes ; one for Maitreya, one each for SLink and SLink Hourglass, and a single fitmesh that will fit standard sizes from XXS up to a M. I did try it with a L shape, and it did not work out well.

My colour coordinated bracelets are the gift you will get with you find the Luminesse egg. This gift is actually for both men and women, as the gold and magenta bracelet on my right wrist is the women’s gift, and the silver and blue band on my left arm is the men’s gift. The men’s bracelet will not shrink down enough for my M sized wrist, but I think it does make a lovely armband. I don’t normally mix metals with individual jewelry pieces, but I really did have to show you all how perfectly both worked with my dress. Like it was meant to be. You get both left and right versions of each bracelet, and they are scripted for size changing if needed.

The GLH Springfair Easter Egg hunt runs until the end of April, so you have plenty of time to go grab all the goodies. I already have plans of showing you a few more gifts in upcoming posts, so keep your eyes opened for them.

I hope you all have a lovely Easter/long weekend, and I will see you all again real soon. Until then, TTFN *waves*
