Falling Stars

Falling Stars Hello and Happy Hump Day Fab Free! I have a quick post for you today featuring FREE jewelry from Graffitiwear and a dollarbie manicure by Sparkle Bunny. So let’s get right to it. I really like this jewelry set from Graffitiwear, especially the idea of falling stars. There are so many happy things my mind associates with falling stars that I couldn’t help wanting this set. I also think the jewelry looks very unique. To get this FREE necklace and earring set from Graffitiwear all you need to do is join their subscriber group. This manicure from Sparkle Bunny is such a perfect match with the jewelry set that I couldn’t pass it up. I found this shiny black polish with dark gold stars on the Marketplace for just 1 linden. This dollarbie by Sparkle Bunny is a Maitreya nail applier only, and it will allow you to apply a manicure and a pedicure.

“When all the stars were falling
they fell from above
and I thought of hate, and I thought of hate,
and then I thought of love…” – Lisa Loeb

Just the Highlights

High Lights

For a limited time, Paisley Daisy has lowered their group join to only 10L so you can pick up their group gifts at a bargain. The August and September group gifts are both out. I’m showing you the pretty dress from August in the picture above and the September group gift is a sheer baby doll dress. The one pictured above is mesh in all the standard sizes and I felt it highlighted the last few days of nice weather… so it’s name was just perfect.

Today is also 25L Tuesday, and I was thrilled to discover beautiful shoes at Luas! These Dorothy shoes come in Slink or Maitreya fits in the box and you can get a choice of 8 colors for only 25L each. I picked up the ivory, but you may want to pick up something different… or one of each!

High Lights

I finished off my flowery look with a pretty necklace I found from Clever & Cool on the marketplace. This necklace was only 10L. When I first put it on, it had some serious bling, so I was skeptical, but then I discovered that I could turn that off by typing “bling off” into local chat and ta da! No more bling! It also allows for resizing and retexturing of the flowers into many different color choices besides the pink stones shown… so your 10 little Linden gets you a lot of necklace.

Fall Feelings

Fall Feeling Hello there Fab Free’rs! Can you believe it’s almost October!? I’m so ready for all things fall I can barely contain my excitement. Needless to say when I saw this incredibly girly coat from Vintage Touch, I had to share it with you. The coat is the current group gift at Vintage Touch and it comes in standard mesh sizes and one fitmesh. I love the style and the pattern of this coat/dress. The rose pattern reminds me of vintage English Tea Rose patterns that always catch my eye. The gift also comes with some stockings in a classic system layer, and an Omega applier that I did not show. I chose to throw on a pair of jeans and boots to wear the gift as a coat rather than a dress. To add this pretty coat to your own wardrobe, you’ll need to join the Vintage Touch in-world group. The Vintage Touch group is 1 linden to join.
Fall Feeling Close To go along with my fancy new coat, I picked up this pretty pink crystal necklace from Imbue. There are several group gifts available at Imbue, this simple yet pretty necklace is the most recent. Like tea roses, I’m kind of a sucker for crystals. The necklace comes in a rigged and unrigged mesh version, and you have the option of either a gold or silver pendant. Both are strung on a thin black cord. To get this gift at Imbue, simply join their updates group in world. There is a one time fee of 50 lindens, however the gifts currently available are worth the fee.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Boho Hippy Style

Hello FabFree-ers!  I’m thrilled to be back with FabFree, and bringing a little bit of shopping sunshine to your Mondays.

Coming soon to Fab Free!

After taking a bit of time away from SL, one of the first things on my agenda was swinging through my favorite stores to see whats new.  After a few exhilarating 2000 ft free falls (thanks old landmarks! :D) I found myself at the Ayiki mainstore.  If you love applier bathing suits and lingerie, this is a must stop on your shopping travels, Ayiki‘s designs are beautiful and fun.

Right inside the door is a free gift for shoppers, this cute hippy style mesh top and maxi skirt set.  The outfit comes in a variety of sizes with a great texture changing HUD. There are 5 bright and colorful textures for the top and bottom to mix and match.  No group required!
Coming soon to Fab Free!

ALB Dream Fashion has a new group gift (free to join) out that pairs perfectly with this outfit, a fatpack (yes, fatpack!) of Cherry Necklace chokers.   I’m in love with the wrapped design and trailing ends, plus the variety of colors  means you are sure to find one to match your favorite outfit.

 

~All The Things~

One Magical, Misty Morning

One Magical, Misty Morning
Hello there, FabFree Readers!  I’m Kathryn Vayandar, one of the two newest bloggers for Fabulously Free, but you can call me Kat.  A long time Second Life resident (8 years…..practically an SL senior citizen, but don’t get the walker ready yet!), I’m a dedicated bargain hunter and I’m excited to share my shopping adventures with you.

Today, my puppy and I took a stroll on a quiet country road in The Forest, an enchanted woodland sim that hosts a shopping event each month.  While Ripley wandered off, happily sniffing out bunny trails, I paused, enjoying the misty morning light, clad in the first Fabulous Find I’d like to share with you.  Knowing the day would quickly warm up, I chose to wear the cute, knotted top from Hottest Fashion’s gift for Third Life members.  The Melanie Set also includes a pair of white, high-waist shorts, but since the morning air was brisk, I donned a pair of sleek, leather pants from Greane Design which I discovered on The Marketplace for only 69 lindens.  My comfy Tawny Sandals from Slipper Originals and The Shadow Lord Choker (a free gift from Ronsem) blogged here by Love Trill, completed my ensemble.  The necklace is an older gift, but it is one of my favorite casual pieces and is still available, so I thought I’d mention it in case you might be interested.

Oh dear, I think I need to rescue the rabbits from Ripley…..until next time, happy shopping!

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.

Don’t Bat Your Eyes: 14 Days of Giving at Meva!

15 Days of Giving

Don’t bat your eyes! I have big news! Not only is the Cart Wash Sale going on at the moment… but Meva is celebrating a new location with 14 Days of Giving Gifts!

I stopped by the Cart Wash today and picked up this Tabby Dress from the Little Bat Cart. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and for just 10 little Linden you get a color change hud with 8 choices… making this like 8 dresses in one for your 10L!

I then made a beeline for Meva where I picked up the very first of 14 gifts to come… my beautiful black bangles🙂 Every day you can pick up a new group gift as part of the giving with your group tag. The group fee is 100L but for 14 gifts the next two weeks, that fee will definitely pay for itself. I’m including the gift calendar picture below to show you what will be available.

Freak Show Fashion

Freak Show Hello Fab Free! It’s great to see you again! Don’t let the creepy monkey or the dramatic lighting fool you, the gifts I have to share with you aren’t creepy at all, rather they are quite fabulous! For this post I have three items to share with you, a group gift dress from Blaraby, a group gift necklace from ECCO, and a pair of group gift shoes from Empire.  This is one of those times when several gifts seem almost meant to go together. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Freak Show Close Ups There are several group gifts to be had a Blaraby, but this “Bambi” dress really caught my eye. I love the style, and the color. This mesh dress comes in standard mesh sizes and fitted sizes for Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara. To get this lovely belted dress, head over to Blaraby and join the group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. There is a one time group join fee of 50 lindens to join the Blaraby group. Don’t forget to pick up the other group gifts while you’re there!

ECCO also has several group gifts available to all their group members. The most recent is their August group gift. This pretty little necklace from ECCO has detailed swallows and a single gemstone. The gift includes a color change hud to change the metal color and the gemstone color. To pick up this sweet gift, join the in world group and click the vendor while wearing your tag. You’ll also see a shelf full of previous gifts near by. The ECCO group has a one time join fee of 200 lindens.

Finally, I’m honestly never disappointed in the group gifts from Empire. September’s group gift is this laced up over the knee heel in two special colors. The gift includes a pair of shoes in red, and in purple to fit the bodies and feet for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP.  Also included with this group gift is a color change hud to adjust the color of the sole, and the metal parts of the shoes. There is a one time join fee for the Empire group of 499 lindens. However, the fee pays for it’s self in the form of an always stellar monthly gift.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Sweet Memories

Snapshot_005
With all of the excitement going on this weekened with the Designer 2.0 program launch and the opening of the new Fabulously Free in SL Info Hub, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to sneak a post in, but I am glad I found a little bit of time to share this bit of news!

My Caboodle Shaleen Dress in the blue floral print (available in mesh XXS-L sizes) can be found as a free Getsuga Sim Hunt prize along with the ATTIC Elfman Vintage Camera shown.  There are a few different stores  participating and I believe there are 12 prizes in total, but you can find this information along with an example of the hunt icon at the landing point at the Getsuga Sim! All prizes are free and this hunt will run until the 16th of September.

Another thing I wanted to mention is the Glam Affair Skin Applier called Viktoria that I am wearing today on my Catwa Helena Mesh Head.  I picked this beautiful applier up in an asia skin tone (normally lighter than I usually wear, but I really like it!) on Friday for 50L as a Fifty Linden Friday offer and I just checked before publishing this post (Sunday night) to make sure it is still there for anyone who may still be interested.  This is a time sensitive offer and may not be available.

It’s Fear The Walking Dead night – Gotta run!

Wild Pink Butterfly

Butterflies Hello Fab Free’rs! For once I’ve had a fairly quiet day in RL and I’m glad. It’s about time! I hope you’re all doing well. Today I have a few group gifts, one from Hucci (technically a subscriber gift), and one from The Skinnery. Also, Indulge Temptation is celebrating 2 years with two ways score a beautiful celebratory gift.

The subscriber gift a Hucci is this lovely magenta colored mesh sleeveless top. The shirt comes in body-specific mesh sizes for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique and Hourglass, as well as Belleza Isis, Freya, and Venus. As you can see this low cut “WildPink” is meant to be sexy yet casual, I think it could also be worn over an applier top if you wanted a little more coverage. To get this FREE subscriber gift at Hucci simply join the Subscriber, if the gift isn’t sent to you, use the message history to have the gift delivered.
Butterfly To go with the top from Hucci, I also picked up this pretty raspberry colored lip stain from The Skinnery. This Catwa lip applier is a FREE group gift at The Skinnery. It comes in a set of 4 stains. Each color has a normal version and smudgy version that makes it look as though you’ve messed up your lip-color with a little kissing! The Skinnery group has a one time join fee of 200 lindens. Once you’ve got your group tag, simply click the gift vendor and your lip stain set will be delivered. There are also several past group gifts still available.

The bold beautiful butterfly jewelry shown in the photos is a fun hunt prize or group gift from Indulge Temptation. This specific set along with several color change huds are the way Indulge Temptation is celebrating their 2 year Anniversary! There are 2 ways you can get this gorgeous set of statement jewelry. If you don’t want to join the in world group, you can hunt each piece at the main store. Each hidden part of the set is 10 lindens and there are 12 total pieces, most of which are the color change huds that allow you to adjust the color of the jewels as well as the metal parts. You can also resize these pieces of jewelry for the best fit. Not up for a hunt? No problem. Indulge Temptation group members can pick the full set up for FREE as a group gift.  The in world group has a one time join fee of 100 lindens, and there are previous group gifts available as well. You’ll find this and the other gifts in a room to the left of the landing point.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
