Catch of the Day

Catch of the Day
Hello Fabulouses!  I hauled in a great one today!  No, it’s not the fish (but he’s a beauty, don’t you think?)  My Fabulous Find is the best catch of all!  This adorable short set is a free group gift for members of the B&T Designs group at Bijou Couture.  My barely-there, bardot style, crop top coordinates perfectly with the patterned belt and back pockets of the Naomi shorts.  I just love the sweet rose pattern and the soft ruffles in the top and sleeves.  I’m sure to soak up plenty of the sun’s rays with my shoulders and tummy bare.  This outfit is ideal for a lazy warm spring or summer day.  You have to be a group member to reel in this charming short set, but the group is completely free to join.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus

Catch and Release

Well, I’d better pop this guy back in the water, and whistle for Ripley, who is off hunting for the perfect stick.  It’s time for us to mosey on home for the day.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Hawaiian Breeze

Monomania

Monomania is an excellent store to visit if you are looking for a bargain…  or fabulous free things!  I stopped in over the weekend and picked up the gorgeous Tropicalia Dress as shown on my avatar as a free SLF&O group gift.  The SLF&O group is free to join, so this dress was 100% free.

Go To Hawaii

The Tropicalia Dress is a breezy long maxi dress with an all over striped floral print that screams:

Do you wanna go
Straight to Hawaii
(Hawaii) Hawaii (Hawaii)
Straight to Hawaii (Hawaii, Hawaii)
Oh do (Honolulu, Waikiki) you wanna come along with me
(Do you wanna come along with me)

Free to Choose

Dancing on My Own

Hello Fabulous Readers!  I hope you are having a lovely, relaxing weekend.  While in the midst of our wanderings through the grid, Ripley and I came across a fantastic group gift that I just had to tell you about!  I blogged earlier this month {HERE} about a previous gift from Arcane Spellcaster.  The generous designer has replaced Spring Blue with a free 500L gift card for members of the Arcane Spellcaster AK Creations group.  No, that wasn’t a typo!  If you joined the group after my previous post, switch back to the group tag, teleport over, and claim your very own gift card worth 500L.  If you aren’t yet a member, the join fee is 250L, but you can scoop up some lovely items on a shopping spree!

So Many Possibilities

Typically with group gifts, you don’t get a choice in what item you receive, so I thoroughly enjoyed wandering around the store, and checking out all my options.  The lovely Patricia gown immediately caught my eye, and when I slipped it on, Ripley wagged his tail with approval.  With slender shoulder straps, a lace-covered midsection, and a long, curve-hugging skirt, this dress is pure elegance.  I love the way the translucent overlay adds a lace texture over the trailing skirt.  Also included in the package are gauzy sleeves, and a pearl necklace, which I opted not to wear for my photo.  The gift comes with a HUD with four textures; you can color the entire outfit the same as I have done, or use a different hue for the bra, dress and sleeves.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitted Mesh
  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

If Patricia is not your style, there are *plenty* of other options to choose from at Arcane Spellcaster.  I had a tough time deciding which pieces to add to my inventory.  I’m sure you’ll find an outfit that catches your eye.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 05/19/2017 – Adoness

Adoness Exterior
Happy Friday Fab Free! The pretty moonlit building pictured above is none other than Adoness, the shop for this week’s Designer Friday post. Adoness is probably best known for their unique edgy hairstyles in rich bold colors. However you’ll also find some ladies clothing, accessories, and even nail appliers and eyes. I would describe the style at Adoness as slightly gothic lolita. However I think it lends itself not only to an urban style, but other fantasy genres like anime also.

Adoness Info & Gifts
Once inside the shop, you’ll see the interior is uniquely decorated like the exterior. Just inside the entrance on the wall you’ll see the current Fab Free exclusive FREE group gift from Adoness. Astrid showed this gift previously in her post “Join Me at the Pub.” To get this gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor. If you’re not already a member, not to worry, the Fab Free group is always FREE to join.  In the center of the room you’ll find a column with a desk and a subscriber joiner, in world group, a link to the blog, Marketplace, and a landmark giver on one side. Sitting on the desk are two dollarbie hairstyles. On a different side of the same column is where you’ll find the information about store groups and affiliations.

While most of the items at Adoness are for the ladies, there are several items like eyes and hairstyles that I believe could be considered unisex. Browse the hairstyles on the left side of the shop, and find clothing, accessories, gachas, and other items to the right. There’s even more shopping upstairs.

PEACE

PrismGarageFair

Hey there FabFree Readers!  Over the last few days I have been showing you some really nice gifts that are available at The Garage Fair and I have another one to share news with you about today.

Before I get into the details of my free outfit…

I wanted to mention that it has come to my attention that some of the barrels do not contain gift items, they contain for sale items.  Please take care when you are willy nilly clicking away at the barrels that you don’t purchase something you don’t intend to.  Take your time, look around and check the prices!  There are many gifts to be found, but many great deals too.

Sky Blue Lara

The playful 2 piece set called Lara that I am wearing today is a free gift that you can pick up at The Prism Garage Fair Display by buying the contents of the barrel for 0L.  What you’ll receive is the teeny frilled tied top and the printed denim skirt.

Sizes Included:

  • XXS – L Mesh + Alphas
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Are You A Poser?

If so, you should grab this fun Happy Girl Pose that I picked up for just 1L in the B&G Marketplace store.

PEACE!

This Way to the Beach Life

This Way to the Beach
Hello Fabulous Readers!  Soon……oh so soon….Ripley and I will be on break for the summer.  In my new free Spring Romper from RIR Life, I am sure to enjoy our days of freedom in style.  Featuring a delicate floral pattern and white ruffled trim, this playful sleeveless outfit is perfect for a casual day of fun.  The top and bottom can be paired together as I have done here, or worn separately to mix and match with other pieces of clothing.   I really like the style of the waistline and the combination of  print and solid textures in the top.  The RIR Life group has a 10L join fee, but this May gift is well worth the investment.

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Venus

I See Your True Colours

BlackRose
A Primary Pairing

Good morning Fabulouses!  BlackRose Fashion, usually puts out one group gift per month, but this month there are two of them!  I haven’t even had a chance to try on the first one yet which is a floral printed dress, but when this sweet 2pc set came up as a second group gift, I jumped right in it.  The bright primary colours just screamed at me to wear them… and so I did.

The BlackRose inworld group is free to join, so you have nothing to lose and plenty to gain!  The Pencil Skirt and Top Set include both the mesh pencil skirt and laced top with off-the-shoulder sleeves in a variety of mesh and mesh body specific sizes.  As these come in two pieces, you can even choose to wear them separate if you like.

Sizes Included:

  • XS – XL Mesh + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Ebody
  • Tonic
  • TMP

What’s The Point?

With the primary colours and straight lines this outfit features, I went with a simple gold triangle point necklace that I picked up at FaMESHed as a free Anniversary Gift.  The FaMESHed group is free to join and you can find this gift at the RealEvil Industries display.

Down in Mexico

DownInMexico
It’s been quite a while since I have been down to Mexico, but I do remember the sun was hot, the tequila was amazing, and the siestas were long and plentiful…  Ahhh…  I really must go back again soon.  What made me think back to my visit to Mexico was the latest group gift at Mishchino!

I’m in Stitches

You can find this sweet ethnic embroidered tank top as a free group gift for ladies at Mishchino with a 1L fee to join the group!  You can’t see the back of this top in my photo because I really wanted to feature the front stitching, but it has a cute red bow holding the straps together racer-back style – making the back as awesome as the front!

Sizes included:

  • XXS – L + Alpha Layer
  • Hybrid Mesh XXS – L
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique
  • Belleza Isis, Venus & Freya
  • TMP
