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

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!

She’s Sweet Like Candy

She's Sweet Like Candy

There are days for fancy staid clothing, where you look professional and important.  This is clearly not one of those days.  It’s a Monday, so I say put aside your normal garb and don something slightly mad and provocative.  If you look like a sugar-coated bonbon, there’s clearly no room for the Monday blues!

Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking


Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking

Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m feelin’ a little nostalgic today. The new group gift hairstyle by No Match with it’s braided pigtails sticking strait out made me giggle, but it also reminded me of some of the female literary characters from my youth that I so admired. Girls such as Anne Shirley, Caddie Woodlawn, Laura Ingalls, and of course Pippi Longstocking all held a special place in my little-girl heart. I remember them being brave, intelligent, imaginative girls who knew who they were and what they wanted. It felt good to be reminded of them today. So inspired, I paired the youthful hairstyle with the striped sweater-dress Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East and ran with it. I hope you enjoy this fun look as much as I do.

The Hairstyle – This hairstyle by No Match is their current free group gift. Called No Socks, it really made me think of being little and barefoot in the springtime. It comes with a full fatpack of hair colors, and can be resized. Also included are system layer hair-bases, and a set of mesh head hair-base appliers (Omega, Lelutka, Catwa, TMP). You’ll need to wear the No Match group tag to get this gift. The current group join fee is 50 linden and there are quite a few past group gifts available on the second floor.

The Sweater Dress – I think it’s the stripes that made this off-the-shoulder sweater dress seem so youthful to me. It’s the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East. I could also see it paired with some tall boots. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 4 preset options, all of which are striped. To get your copy of this free gift just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Sevyn East. If you’re not a Fabulously Free in SL group member yet, you can join for free.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Stay Safe!

Stay Safe

I won’t bore you with my regular ramblings about the lack of warmth in RL, or the fact that I’m still trudging through slush on the daily.  Instead, I’ll just talk about the importance of water safety!  Make sure you’ve got a cute lifeguard keeping an eye on  you at all times, because ain’t nobody got time for no drowning!  What?  It’s true!

Upcycling is so Hot Right Now

You may have heard of the shop Upcycled before if you’re a freebie hunter like we are here on Fab Free!  They have a little inworld shop now where every item is completely free, from clothes all the way down to flowers, furniture and food.  I grabbed my cute little applier bikini and jean shorts there, as well as the lifeguard chair I’m sitting on!  You’ll find lots of great items to decorate with, so give it a little peek!  My clothes come with an Omega applier for easy wearing purposes!

More Bonbons!

Have you seen that Bonbon has a new group gift out for Fabulously Free in SL group members?  My little side ponytail is just so adorable and warm-weather ready that I can barely stand it.  It comes with an HUD to change to all sorts of pretty hair colours, and you can also change the colour of the scrunchie.  To grab your own, just join the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group, which is always FREE to join, making this cute hairstyle completely free!  Yaaaas!

Stay safe out there!

Skip to Summer

Skip to Summer

It may just be my imagination, but we seem to be sneaking a few more beach shots than is normal for March here on the Fab Free blog.  I can honestly tell you that I am in some serious need of vitamin D.  And also warmer weather, and a possibly to not ever wear snow boots again.  I feel like these things may improve my life by quite a bit.  In the meantime, I’m finding some sunlight in SL, and keeping my fingers and toes crossed for some RL sun!

I See the Moon

So Moon has quickly become one of my favourite hair places on the grid.  They’ve got loads of gorgeous styles to choose from, and when I stopped by the other day, I noted that they have a masssiiiiiiive wall of gifts right behind the main counter.  I joined their group for 99 Lindens and got about 15 different styles that I am completely obsessed with.  My favourite one is this long undone braid that comes with little daisies you can add for whimsical purposes.  Fantastic or what!  Get over to Moon, what are you waiting for!

Go Fetch!

Fetch have a few group gifts out right now that you can pick up with a group join fee of 50 Lindens.  I grabbed these really cute sun glasses (they come with an HUD to change the colour of the frames) as well as their most recent gift – the insanely adorable pineapple clutch I’ve got in my hand.  Is it not the best?  I feel like summer is creeping up on us just because I’m holding it!  Head on over to Fetch and grab these beauts!

Until next time, darlings!

Feelin’ Friday

Feelin' Friday

It’s Friday everyone!  The mystical land of freedom and joy (well, at least for those who don’t work on weekends, I suppose).  Today I feel like letting my wild side out a little bit, because we all know that doesn’t happen often enough (cue laugh track)!  I may just have found the outfit for that perfect Friday feeling!

Lana at it Again

Lana has been making some really interesting clothing recently, a lot focused around some appealingly shiny and semi transparent plastic material of some ilk.  If you’ve been itching to try it out but aren’t quite sure what it would look like on, there’s a perfect chance to get your mitts on some right now as a FREE group gift at the mainstore!  The Abi skirt is a shiny holographic concoction with an HUD included to change to all sorts of amazing colours,  and I kind of really love it!  Join their group for free, pick it up (and the other gifts there, while you’re at it) and you’re good to go!

Liaising with Love

Love mentioned the other day that there are a whole bunch of goodies over at The Liaison Collaborative.  Join their free group, and you’ll be able to pick up a host of cute things, including the hair I’ve got going on by Iconic!  It comes in a whole fatpack of awesome colours and just looks absolutely chic and gorgeously mussed, in my humble opinion.  The group gifts are all on the little carts hanging around the middle of the event!

Time for some craziness, hold on tight!

The Oracle


The Oracle

Hello Fab Free! I’m so glad you’re here. This look I came up with for Pru reminded me of an Oracle like the ones in stories about ancient Rome. Maybe it’s the fiery eyes, or the detailed pendant. Both items are free gifts at the Summoning Spring Fair. I used several gifts from the Summoning Spring Fair to create this unique look. I hope you enjoy them.

The Hair – As I mentioned there are lots of free gifts to be had at the Summoning Spring Fair. CHARME happens to have 2 gifts. This swing-bob style hair is their free gift, and if you pick up both of the CHARME gifts you’ll get the hairstyle with 4 total color change huds. This free hairstyle also has a unique feature that lets your color/texture the top strands of the hair separately from the rest to give the style a lot of dimension and tons of color combinations.

The Tattoo – This mandala-like forehead tattoo is the Summoning Spring Fair gift from Fallen Gods. It comes in classic system layers along with an Omega applier. That means this freebie is suitable for mesh (Omega compatible) avatars and classic non mesh avatars. Not to mention with all the color choices, you could wear it with anything!

The Eyes – I think these intense eyes by Cubic Cherry might be my favorite of the free gifts at the Summoning Spring Fair. They come in several vibrant colors. This git set includes a pair of mesh eyes, a matching alpha layer, an optional shadow add-on for extra detail, a texture change hud, and an Omega applier hud for Omega compatible eyes.

The Necklace – Finally, this beautiful necklace is by On a Lark, and is also a free gift at the Summoning Spring Fair. I would consider this item to be unisex. It comes with a texture change hud that lets you pick from several preset options for the shiny stone, and 3 metal choices for the chain and setting.

Here are the details!

Hair – C H A R M E – Valentine – Monotones – Free Gift @Summoning Spring Fair
Horns –  [[Black Star]] Glamour Horns gold

Fab Free Designer of the Week – Now and WooW

Hey There Fab  Free! It’s time for another edition of Fab Free Designer of the Week. This edition is all about a shop called “Now and WooW.” This little shop is a ladies fashion boutique that carries both mesh and applier clothing as well as shoes. At Now and WooW you’ll find mostly what I would consider club-wear. However there are shoes (as I mentioned before), some casual streetwear looks, a little bit of lingerie, and even a few hairstyles. It is definitely a little bit of everything, so there’s bound to be something for almost everyone. Sorry guys!

As you enter the Now and WooW shop you’ll see the information desk right away. In this area you can join the in-world group, which is free to join. There’s even a cool studded pair of free group gift high heeled shoes waiting for you next to the desk. Also on the wall next to the desk are the posters for the store associated groups and events. In this area of the Now and WooW store is where you can pick up your free Fabulously Free in SL group gift. You’ll need to wear your Fab Free group tag. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, have no fear, the Fab Free group is free to join also. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

That’s what I thought

FabFree: That's what I thought

Hey there Fabulouses!  I have a couple of really nice free things to tell you about today, and I have news about some awesome 50L boots.  My whole look today is uber budget friendly, and I think… uber cute too!

Jersey Knit

At Safira, you’ll find a wall of free group gifts and on that wall, you’ll find the Renee Belted Dress in grey jersey knit!  You can choose to wear the belt with it, or without for an even more casual look.  I think this might be cute with printed leggings too, worn as a long top.  The Safira inworld group is free to join – grab all those gifts!

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis & Freya

A Glam Kitten

The voluminous Glam Kitten “do” is another one of the fatpacks of hairstyles in the daily rotation of midnight mania board prizes at Besom.  There are different styles in the board every day, and they just keep coming!

Sweet 50L Boots

I have no idea if this was a FLF or a Saturday Sale offer… but still today, you can find the Friday Lennon Boots w/ texture change socks at the landing point at White River Farms today in the colour storm!  As I am unsure how long this offer will last, it’s best to rush right over if you’d like to partake!
