What You Always Wanted

What you Always Wanted

I always wanted a leather jacket.  Always.  Seems I could never quite find the perfect one, unfortunately.  To me, a black leather jacket is quite literally the most useful item you can have in your wardrobe.  It can give clout and toughness to even the girliest of outfits, which to me is always a nice counterpoint to any sweetness.  Don’t you think?

I am Fashion

I went by IAF today and noted that there are a whole bunch of FREE group gifts just waiting for you to claim them!  Today I’m showing you the Embellished lime bustier which comes as an applier (for both Omega and TMP) as well as system layers.  There are a whole bunch of other cute gifts for you to pick up too while you’re there, just join the free IAF group for free and they’re all yours!

Kisses for the Cart Sale

The Wash Cart Sale is going down right now, and we all know that means deals aplenty!  Love has shown you a few of her finds HERE and HERE, and I picked up my really cute leather jacket by Baci while I was nosing about.  It cost me a mere 25L, but hiding inside the bag you’ll also find some lingerie to go with it!  There are several different versions of this jacket to choose from, but I went with the classic black to match my outfit (it has a bit of hot pink writing on the back, which is pretty cute too!).  Loads to discover over at The Wash sim!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • S – L with an Alpha Layer

Right I need to go pretend to be tough a bit more!

Unforgettable


Late Night

Hello Fab Free’rs! I feel like I can almost taste the weekend inching nearer, I’m ready. This look is a definite weekend night out look, and it’s all thanks to free group gifts from Beautiful Dirty Rich, and Canimal. The dress is one of two new group gifts out at Beautiful Dirty Rich, and the hoop earrings are an older still available gift at Canimal. I personally just really liked how the two gifts look together. I hope you do too.

The Dress – I don’t mind admitting I’m having a hard time finding the words to express how much I genuinely love this group gift dress at Beautiful Dirty Rich. With this free group gift you’ll get the dress in quite a few sizes, and a texture change hud. Let me just say this hud is not only user friendly, I love all the options it gives. There are 12 pattern options for the main part of the dress, and 12 solid color choices. Each dress texture has a set of matching color choices for the metal bits, and the laces. There are also 8 additional textures for the metal parts, and the hud gives you the ability to tint the individual parts and save up-to 8 tint colors for future use. As if things couldn’t get any better, the Beautiful Dirty Rich group is also free to join, and this fabulous gift isn’t the only group gift currently available. There are several previous group gifts still out for grabs.

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


Queen

The Earrings – Sometimes hoop earrings really are the answer to your jewelry woes. I’ve actually been looking for the right outfit to wear these group gift earrings by Canimal for a while now. Though they are not a terribly recent gift, they are still available. This free group gift includes 9 pairs of earrings, each with a different word in the center of the hoops. Also included is a color change hud that lets you pick from 12 preset colors. The Canimal store group is also free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available. You’ll find these hoops on the second floor to the left of the lucky letter boards.

Here are the details:

Hair – Elikatira – [e] Libby – Exclusives
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Earrings – [Canimal] Hoops FATPACK – Free Group Gift/Group is Free to Join
Dress – …:::Beautiful Dirty Rich:::… Unforgettable -Dress- Free Group Gift/Group is Free to Join

Throwing Shade

Throwing Shade

It’s always interesting to try and make an outfit you wouldn’t usually wear into something really cool.  I don’t know that I could ever pull off a matching bandeau top and bicycle shorts in RL, but quite frankly, I think it’s fun to step outside one’s comfort zone in SL!

A Ring of Roses

Rosary has a new group gift out!  This shorts and bandeau top (as well as the earrings that match!) are all together in the box, and they come with an HUD to change to a bunch of different marbled looks, or if you prefer, a host of plain colours as well.  I think you can personalize this outfit in lots of different ways, either for some exercise or dress it up a bit for a really cool model off duty look.  The top and shorts can also be worn separately so you can mix and match with things you already have in your inventory.  The Rosary group is currently 200L to join, but there are some other group gifts there too right now!  Woot!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Sn@tch Your Weave

Please ignore that ridiculous subtitle, I just couldn’t help myself.  Anyway, there’s a new fishing grab bag at Sn@tch!  If you head over there with your 7 Seas Fishing Rod (it only costs 100L and you can use it for every fishing outfit in the future – you can buy it by the pond at Sn@tch!), you will have access to a massive pile of different hair looks.  I was there for a little while and came up with at least 5 different hairdos that all looked super adorable on.  I am showing you the CL hair, which is nice and sleek and sideswept.  I’m sure you’ll find something you love lurking in the pond there!

What kind of look can you put together with these gifts?  We’d love to see your creations in the Fab Free Flickr group pool!

Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ Into the Future

Bonjour

Bonjour, Fabulouses!  Real life has been super hectic lately.  It seems like it was just Friday and now all of a sudden it’s Wednesday!  Time is flying by.  I hope your week is going well.  Speaking of flying, I’m pedaling out to do some more hunting, but wanted to quickly share this outfit with you.  The pieces are separates, but to my eyes, they look like they were made to go together.  The best part is, my clothes only cost one little Linden dollar!

Think Pink

This adorable Bimi halter-style top in a bright raspberry hue is a free gift from Baby Monkey for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Featuring a high neckline and and a low cut back, this little number is ideal for those sultry late spring days ahead.   I really like the folds in the fabric and the way it hugs your curves and allows you to soak up the sun.  It is designed for a variety of mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate your Fab Free group tag, right click on the board and pay 1L, which will immediately be refunded to you along with the delivery of your gift.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

A Little Bit Boho

Ripley and I ventured along the trail of The Boho Hunt recently.  There are 34 stops along the way with prizes that cost 1 Linden dollar each.  Over at Horr Menswear, if you find the tiny white llama concealed in the shop, you can scoop up these cute little blue Monetta shorts for yourself.  They ride low on your hips and are packed with details such as rivets on the pockets and a bright pink wraparound belt, which coordinates beautifully with the Bimi crop top.  There’s something in this hunt prize for everyone, because versions for classic as well as mesh bodies are tucked inside the package.  The shorts are actually from Ambient Fashion, but they are hidden in Horr Menswear for the hunt.  The event runs until March 31, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing for yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!

Walk Into the Room Purse First

Walk Into the Room Purse First

I don’t think there has ever been a song that I identify more with than Purse First by Bob the Drag Queen (well, I mean…there are probably loads that I identify more with, but for the purposes of this post, let’s just suspend our disbelief for a moment!).  The song has it all – sass, a beat and the deep knowledge that you should never pay too much for an outfit.  Don’t you think you could get behind that statement?

Don’t be so Evasive

There are two new group gifts at Queenz!  Yessss.  I love me some Queenz.  I decided to show you the “Evasive” dress, which shows a heck of a cross-section of your cleavage (ain’t nothing wrong with that, amirite?) and is really an eye-catching look.  It comes with an HUD with plenty of colour options, so you’ll never get bored.  You can get yours by joining the Queenz group for FREE, and you can totally grab all the other awesome gifts while you’re at it!

Sizes

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Katena
  • Maitreya
  • Venus

Now About that Purse

So I totally take the advice of walking into the room purse first seriously.  I 100% did it for real at a wedding in RL and almost beaned a very bewildered fellow in the face, but it was a glorious moment nevertheless.  You can walk into the room purse first SL style with this cute group gift by Mug!  It comes in 4 different colours, and you can even change the colour of the pompom too.  The bento pose is just adorable, and I love every minute of it.  You can get your own by joining the Mug group for 150L, and don’t miss the other two group gifts while you’re there! (I showed you those puppies right HERE).

Have fun my darlings!

Spring Really Has Sprung!

FabFree: Spring Really Has Sprung!

Hello there Fabulouses!  It’s true – spring really has sprung as it’s the first day of spring today (SQUEEEEE), and it’s sprung inworld too, with The Wash’s Spring Has Sprung Cart Sale Event beginning today!  The streets are lined with spring themed displays by designers from across the grid, all priced with items between 10L and 50L.  Today in my blog post, I will be featuring a couple of clothing items by Shae’s Designs and decor by KK Home that you can find at the event… as well as a free gift by Lagom at The Liaison Collaborative.

My Springy Outfit

These adorable denim Misty Jean Shorts and April Tops are available at The Spring Has Sprung Event in eight different prints / colours each.  The tops are priced at 25L each and the shorts at just 10L each!  I know I was tempted to grab a few!!  I am wearing these items on Belleza Freya and they fit well, but hey are both also available in several mesh body fits as listed below.

Sizes Included:

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

The Decor

It’s not often I put together a scene and blog home and garden items.  I generally just go somewhere pretty and stand in it lol, but I was inspired by the spring decor by KK Home at The Spring Has Sprung Event to decorate a little balcony for this shot.  In my photo you’ll see the Tulip Planter Box, the Pussy Willow Vase and The Vintage Pitcher w/ Daffodils.  All three of those items are available for 25L at the event along with plenty of other spring and Easter decor.

Falling Flowers

In my photo you’ll see some pink blossoms and petals blowing in the wind.  This is Lagom’s Falling Flowers TLC Gift that you can pick up with your free The Liaison Collaborative group tag at The TLC Event!  I have attached it to my avatar for photography, but you could rez this item as decor too.  We have shown several of the group gifts available in this Anniversary round of The Liaison Collaborative – here’s a rundown if you missed them!

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Nuts Inc.


Welcome to the Blog Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re ready for this edition of Fab Free Designer of the Week. This time we have the pleasure of sharing Nuts Inc. with you. This fun little shop has brightly colored fashion for men and women. Yep, you read that right, there’s menswear at Nuts Inc. along with ladieswear. As you enter the store you’ll find the clothing separated by women’s fashion on the left and men’s fashion on the right. The clothing styles range from casual wear to formal, and everything in between. I even spotted a ballgown or two. There is also a second floor at Nuts Inc. with a few seasonal and miscellaneous clothing items.

First however you’ll want to stop by the front desk. There you can find a group gift for guys and one for gals. The Nuts Inc. group has a one time join fee of 15 linden. In addition to the current group gifts, you’ll find a 70 linden promotional offer in the same area of the Nuts Inc. store. Just look for it on the wall opposite the desk. Right next to it you’ll spot the colorful Fab Free logo above the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free tag for this one. If you’re not already a member, you can join for free. As you explore the Nuts Inc. shop be sure to make it to the back of the store. It’s there you’ll find a kiosk with quite a few past group gifts still available. Finally, next to the past group gifts you can also get all the store information such as their Flickr and redeliveries. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Enjoy the Silence

Enjoy the Silence

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can’t you understand?

What can I say today y’all, I’ve got me a case of writer’s block, so I’m listening to Depeche Mode and hoping for the best.  I guess that’s all you can do some days!

Back to Ostara!

Pru mentioned the other day that there’s a 5L going on at the Ostara’s Altar event, and I managed to find a really nice sweatshirt (sized for Maitreya bodies) by one of my fave designers, Secret Oktober.  Just find the little egg at their display, pay 5L and this beaut is all yours!  Can’t say no to that!

Giving Some Lip

Yesterday I mentioned that there are a giant mass of awesome FREE group gifts over at CandyLand that you can pick up by joining the Evil Bunny group for free.  I’m showing you the offering by GO, which is this classic red lipstick (it’s a little bit like a light red gloss) that comes with appliers for Catwa and Omega.  Cool!

Well perhaps my verbose nature will come back to me tomorrow!
