Stylin’, Wilin’, Livin’ It Up In The City

Stylin', Wilin', Livin' It Up In The City

Do I look mean in this picture? I swear I’m a nice person, my avatar just likes to make mean faces sometimes. She probably broke those windows when I wasn’t looking too. What a rebel. But she sure dresses cute!

Ricielli Rocks My World

There are bunches of promos on the marketplace from Ricielli. For real, so many. I saw a couple of things for 1L, and lots of others for a bit more but still deeply discounted. The top that I’m wearing includes two colors and is 10L. It comes in 5 standard sizes from L to XXS and I had no problem fitting it without even needing any alpha cuts. It also shows off some killer side boob. My hot boots were a bargain at only 15L.

Boots Sizes Included:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Can’t Forget The Hair

This hair is the newest group gift from Clawtooth. You just need to join the group for free and go to Clawtooth to pick up this super cute long bob in the Essentials color pack.

Shouting is Fun

Shouting is Fun

I was having a conversation with a friend about my “desert island” songs.  Basically, you choose 7 songs that you couldn’t live without if you were marooned on a deserted island.  They’re supposed to tell a story of what your life has been, through music.  Naturally, I got onto YouTube as quick as I could and dove in, so I’ve been listening to music and remembering things all day.  I am not ashamed to say that one of my most formative songs was “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls, because GIRL POWER!!!! Amirite?  One of my favourite Spice Girls quotes ever is “Silence is Golden, but Shouting is FUN”, and I can’t think of a more apt thing to say about my outfit today! So, today because I’m feeling kind of loud, I found a fun bunch of goodies!  Let me try as concise as possible and tell you about all the awesomeness…

Hair

Dude – go to Fabia.  Seriously, go.  Love told me of the goodies that lay there, and she wasn’t lying.  Join the group for 100L and literally (well, figuratively…) get a million different hairdos that will have you unpacking until the cows come home!  I chose the “Britney” hairstyle which features two gorgeous braids cascading down the back, and loads of colour options but there is so much more to choose from at Fabia!

Top

This black lace bustier is the most recent group gift from HEC.  Join the group for 25L, and gain access to a hoard of awesome gifts. Pay the vendor 1L, and you’ll get it refunded.  I really like this top because I can dress it up or down, and it’s just a whole lotta fun.  Go get it!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Ebody
  • Small & Large Standard Sizes

Jeans

My fun animal-print and pastel jeans (that are open to quite a daring dip…eep!) are a group gift over at No Cabide.  There’s a whole bunch of goodness to pick up there too, and the group is free to join!  These jeans come in an array of pretty pastel shades that are anything but demure! Oh, and bonus – there’s a matching pair of shoes in the box!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

PHEW.  I think it’s time for a dance around the room after all that work!

Electric Sweets

Electric Sweets

I’m in the mood for candy!  It happens fairly often, I must admit…but this dress totally makes me want to nip over to the candy store and pick up a whole bunch of sour gummies that are covered in sugar! Mmm-hmm!  Get it girls!

Je Suis Chic!

We’ve shown off a bunch of the gifts from the Très Chic event – and they’ve all been gorgeous!  You can see some of the other finds HERE, HERE and HERE.  I picked up loads of gorgey things – including my dress by Canimal,which comes in this fantabulous shade of electric green, and features a really cool criss-cross section around the collar and hem.  And check out them peek-a-boo cut outs!  So cool!  The dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.  The earrings by Legal Insanity are really fab dangling triangular chains which I would totally wear the heck out of in RL.  The last gift I picked up at Très Chic, is my long sleek hair by No Match.  Isn’t it nice? It comes in a pack of ombre colours that will take you from office to party faster than you can say “flatiron”!

Can you believe all these gifts are completely FREE?  It might *just* be better than candy!

I’m Here For The Party

I'm here for the party

Hi! I’m Allison, one of the two new Fab Free bloggers, and I’m so excited to be here! I’ve been reading this blog for what seems like my whole slife, so it’s weird being on the other side of things. I’m still like, “omg I need to pick up that cute top Aline is wearing” and “ohhh I want that bikini” when I should be bringing some content. So today I’m giving it a go myself and the things I’m wearing? Pretty fantastic!

Little Green Dress

My dress is the new group gift from Hilly Haalan and the group is free to join. I love the ruffles along the top and the texture has a little bit of sheen to it. It also comes with a HUD that will let you change it to just about any color that your heart desires.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

Tres Chic Hair

Many of the fantastic gifts at Tres Chic have been mentioned here already and it’s not too hard to TP in anymore, so there’s no reason not to go grab them for yourself! Just head on over to Tres Chic and join the free group to pick up all of the gifts. This hair is the gift from FABIA there. It’s a low, messy bun with great long bangs. I love a versatile hairstyle that can be dressed up or down!

C’mon Let Me Ride Your Bicycle

HOLA
Hello there Fabulouses! It’s been a while since I have pulled my bike out and taken it for a ride in RL.  In fact, I can’t remember if I still own one.  It may be in the back of the garage somewhere!  All of this wonderful warm weather is sure opening me up to the idea to look for it, but today I decided to go for a ride inworld instead.  Here when I crash into things and fall off, it doesn’t hurt :D.

Race You to FaMESHed!

My casual summer look today is put together with three group gifts that I had picked up at FaMESHed!  I have done a couple of posts previously [HERE] and [HERE] to tell you all about the amazing lot of FREE group gifts available during this Anniversary round, and will be available until the end of the month.

The Three Gifts I’m Wearing Today Are:

  • COCO Gift CropTee:  Sizes Included – Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass & Physique, Belleza Freya & Isis.
  • Le Fil Casse Monday Skirt:  Fitted for Maitreya – Comes in White, red, navy, black & rose gold.
  • RAMA Feeling Alpha Necklace:  Comes in Black, Gold, Silver, Rose Gold & Copper.

The FaMESHed inworld group is free to join, so if you haven’t made time to stop in and grab all of the free group gifts – you really should!

Everyday Magic

Everyday Magic

A little bit of everyday magic is sometimes required to get through a day, I think.  Today is not necessarily one of those days – the sun is shining, all the trees are in bloom, and it’s a long weekend for me… BUT sometimes you need a pick me up!  I found a little bit of every day magic in Second Life today, a simple little pleasure, that makes me smile…

Over it All

I am actually super obsessed with these overalls by Mel’s Store.  I’ve been searching for a pair of overalls for literally forever in SL, but they always looked a bit wonky on me.  I’m happy to report that these ones are a fantastic fit, and they only cost me 1L on Marketplace. Yes…. 1 measly little Linden!  Mel’s Store on Marketplace has a bunch of cute stuff all priced at 1L, so it’s seriously worth checking out!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Back at the Fishing Hole

I went fishing again at Sn@tch!  There’s generally a new fishing prize every 2 weeks at Sn@tch, and this one is called “By Popular Demand” because the creator, Ivey Deschanel, got so many requests for it.  Today, I’m showing off the sleek hair you can fish for, as well as one of the several tops that are available.  It’s really cute, so if you have a Seven Seas fishing rod (you can buy one for 100L outside Sn@tch, then use it every time you want to fish in the future), just park your avi and collect all the parts to get all sorts of lovely things for your inventory!

Top Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine
  • Maitreya
  • Ebody
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

What kind of every day magic do you love?

Bird Watching

Bird Watching

When I was little, we lived across from a big field (quite unusual for someone growing up in the big city!) and there were always lovely birds coming to visit our backyard.  We saw Cardinals, Blue Jays, and Red Winged Blackbirds quite frequently.  I’d always race to the cupboard to grab my binoculars and our bird book to identify which feathered friends were visiting today.  That either sounds completely nerdy, or insanely cozy… perhaps it’s somewhere in between!  I found the perfect outfit for bird watching – and no binoculars were required to find it!

On Wings

In my travels around the grid, I came upon a shop that’s new to me called Zhora Design.  They currently have this super cute bird-adorned outfit out for free for group members.  Join their group for free, and pick up your own copy.  It comes with the adorable skirt, as well as an omega applier top which comes in several different colours.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy
  • Tonic Fine

Beanie Baby

Fashionably Dead also have a new group gift out – this really cute hair and hat combo that comes in a fatpack of colours that range from natural to well…supernatural!  I love when hats are included in hair packs these days, since we all know what hats used to do in SL – look like you were wearing a boat on your head!  This one looks perfectly natural with options to change the colour of the hat as well.  You can grab yours by joining the Fashionably Dead group for 100 Lindens.  There are a few other group gifts out as well, making this group join super worth it!

Have a fantastic weekend Fab Free!

You’re On My Mind

You're On My Mind
Good morning FabFree! Just a quick little post to show off a super affordable look I put together today 🙂

Summer Boho Chic

I am a big fan of Petite Mort and their weekly specials!  This week you can pick up the Black Zoe Maxi Dress for just 50L.  This long casual dress is perfect for a summer boho chic look.

Sizes Included:

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

Ink Yourself

The bolero tattoo you see on my skin today is called Dalla and it is available as a free group gift at Aurica with a free group join.  Compatible with Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, TMP and Omega – this tattoo will go really nice with so many sleeveless summer dresses and tops!  There are several group gifts at Aurica including ink and even a dress which I have previously blogged [HERE].

The Final Touch

To add a little shine to my ensemble, I have added the Pure Poison Floral Earrings which are available at this round of FaMESHed as a free group gift.  I am wearing the gold version because they match perfect with the gold accents on the dress, however they do also come in silver.
