FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Perfectly Posh in Pearls

Glancing Back

Happy Saturday, wonderful readers!  This morning, Ripley and I started our weekend the way we always do… reading the Fabulously Free in SL blog.  While I was admiring Loki’s sensuous photo here, Ripley insistently nosed the Group Gift Listing link in the corner of the Fab Free web page.  Of course, with my pooch’s gift for finding fashion, I immediately followed his lead and discovered not one, but two, new, free, fabulous gifts for Fab Free group members that, in my mind, coordinate with each other spectacularly.

With a few quick teleports and clicks, I became the proud new owner of Posh Tale’s free, elegant Margot gown and Tiffany Designsfree back necklace.   The opulent sheen of the double stranded pearls contrasts beautifully with the subtle shimmer of the floor length, formal gown.  From the front, the necklace appears to be a traditional pearl strand, but from behind, it drapes beautifully and emphasizes the line of your back.  I love the way the dress leaves my shoulders bare to feel the caress of the moonlight.  The gown includes a HUD that allows you to select one of 16 colors, and comes in 5 sizes for classic avatars.  Although there was no applier for mesh bodies, I was able to wear the gown just fine by adjusting the alpha on my Maitreya Lara body.  After adding simple pearl studs from Caroline’s jewelry, and slipping on some black heels (more on these shoes in my blog post coming tomorrow), I accompanied Ripley to the outdoor ballroom at the Invictus sim.

Perfectly Posh

While the night breeze ruffled Ripley’s fur, we wandered around the grounds of this beautifully decorated sim, which is inspired by the poem of the same name by William Ernest Henley.  It’s a Linden Endowment for the Arts exhibit and is well worth exploring.  I discovered the Invictus sim by reading this blog post by Ziki Questi.  It has more in depth information if you are interested, and is enjoyable to read.  Periodically, falling stars blazed a trail across the purple and mauve streaked sky while we walked around.  Legend has it that if you wish upon a shooting star, your wish will come true.  Here’s hoping that all your wishes come true this weekend.  Until tomorrow, happy shopping!

Catch Me in Your Dreams

Catch Me In Your Dreams

More and more amazing designers are offering amazing group gifts for the FabFree Group at their in-world stores. House of Ruby has now offered up a fashionably sexy gift for us fellas that gentlemen will want to get in on. These Torn Boxers for Him come in system layers as well as Slink or Omega Huds. You also get two versions… the “mesh” version I’m showing in the picture above, or the slightly riskier “clear” version that I’m not showing😉

To pick up this generous FREE gift, simply join the Fabulously Free Group by copying and pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about into local chat. When the link for the group comes up, click it and choose join. Then teleport to House of Ruby and pick up your FREE gift.

Pixel Box is also currently hosing a FREE in-store Group Gift hunt. What does this mean? It means there are 4 group gifts set out that are FREE to group gift members. Join the Pixel Box group FREE, wander around the store and find the gifts and they are yours FREE. I’m sporting the Gothic dreamcatcher necklace in the picture above. I’m pretty sure it’s meant for a female avatar but I discovered that with the resize option, it’s very versatile and manages to be nicely unisex. I found it made a nice match to my new House of Ruby briefs. The other gifts at Pixel Box were just as nice, and included both ladies and gents, and you can’t go wrong with FREE.

Tis Kustom

Tis Kustom Hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful week! I’m doing pretty well myself, especially after indulging in a little retail therapy at the current round of Kustom 9. This round of Kustom 9 is an anniversary round. Can you believe Kustom 9 has turned 3? In it’s relatively short time in Second Life, Kustom 9 has become one of the events I personally enjoy the most. I like the fact that it has remained a smaller event while still bringing in quality designers, at least in my opinion. In celebration of this anniversary, most if not all the participating vendors have put out a 9 linden gift. I picked up several, and the ones shown here are just a handful that I thought went well together.

This cute shoulder-length hairstyle is the K9 gift from MINA. I am always a sucker for heavy blunt bangs! I also like the swept back look of the style. I think it appears as though it could be tied back, but it floats over the shoulders and ends in a sort of feathery natural looking edge. The hair includes a color change hud of pretty “light brown” variations, and a version with and one without materials enabled.

Next, Essences also placed out a pretty variation on their Sophia skin as their K9 gift. This lovely face with the lilac lips is a Catwa head applier only. The gift applier is in the Essences medium01 tone with dark brows, and costs just 9 lindens like all the gifts at Kustom 9. I think the subtle makeup on this Catwa head applier by Essences is great for everyday wear. I also believe would look just as nice with casual clothing as it would with formal attire.

Fab Free’s own Kathryn commented on the photo for this post in Flickr that these eyes were “striking”. I completely agree with her, she always has such nice things to say! The eyes are part of the K9 gift from S0NG. S0NG’s 9 linden gift includes this hazy blue pair of eyes, and an equally strange and beautiful greenish pair. Named the “Bomi” eyes, each pair comes in a  mesh set, as well as a classic system layer.

Finally, this glittery iridescent choker with the little heart is from Pumpkin and I’m crushing on it big time! lol The mesh collar/choker has such a fun vibe, and it made me think of all the fun plastic jewelry I would have worn in my teens. Needless to say there was an instant feeling of slight nostalgia which is always a good thing in my book. The glittery heart choker has resize scripts built in for easy fitting, and is seriously cute on, especially for just 9 lindens.

Here are the details, I hope you like this small sample of the Anniversary gifts at Kustom 9.

Hair – MINA – Odyle – Light brown – 9L @Kustom9 

Catwa Head Applier – Essences Catwa Applier [K9 Gift] – 9L @Kustom9 

Eyes – {S0NG} :: Bomi Eyes :: – 9L @Kustom9 

Head – CATWA HEAD Gwen

Choker – [Pumpkin] Glitter Heart Choker- Gift – 9L @Kustom9

She’s The One

She's The One
Hello there Fabulous Readers! Ripley and I are back in a special edition, mid-week post to share another Fabulous Find which we discovered on one of our SL journeys.  Before I get into the details of my outfit, I’d like to begin with this sweet collection of poses from One Creations.  A free gift for Fab Free group members, this four pack contains static poses perfect for snapping photos or just plain looking lovely!  These worked fantastically with my Maitreya mesh body and were just right for capturing the perfect picture.  To add the “Body Language” pack to your pose collection, all you need to do is join the Fab Free Group (and with ALL the lovely FREE gifts, group members have so many benefits!), then teleport over to One Creations and give the gift board a tap.  To join the Fab Free Group, (free to join), copy and paste the following link into local chat in your SL Viewer, and click the group join link – secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about .

After work tonight, while I was walking my fashion-seeking canine, he caught that oh-so-familiar scent of a bargain.  As I followed my furry friend, I wondered what his nose was leading me toward, and I was pleasantly surprised when he sat himself down and stared up at this Plunge Neck Skater Dress from the Culco Boutique.  The soft drape of the skirt and shimmering color of the fabric combine to create an alluring, feminine dress that is sure to please.  I love the way the horizontal band in the center accentuates the waist.  The gift contains appliers for mesh bodies as well as fitted mesh for classic avatars.  Best of all, this dress is free to Teleport Hub Group members.  There are lots of gifts available to Teleport Hub Group members, so the 10L joining fee really pays off in the long run.

After slipping Ripley a doggy snack, (I had to reward his hard work!), we headed over to The Free Dove to search for the perfect accessories.  There, just inside the front entrance, I spied the Twisted Hoops earrings display from Earthstones, and Ripley wagged his tail in approval.  Calleja Fairey first introduced Fab Free to these glittering earrings in her post here.  The gold and pearl hues of these free baubles accentuate the shade of my frock.  It’s hard to see the delicate texture of these earrings in my pictures, but trust me, they are gorgeous!

Next, I scoured my inventory, seeking a necklace to coordinate with my hoops.  Out of 100,000+ items in my inventory (after 8 years in SL, things have gotten a little out of hand there), you would think I could find the perfect match, but alas, it was time for more shopping.  Big grin!! From The Free Dove, we hiked over to Cae and tried our luck at the Whimsy gacha machine.  For 75L, you can win a necklace or earrings in one of 10 shades of beads with a color-change HUD that allows you to choose from 3 metal types.  Rip must be my lucky charm, because on my first try, the machine rewarded me with this charming Whimsy Necklace in Champagne.  Before I got that glazed “gacha” look in my eye, Ripley gave a gentle tug on his leash and led me off to Luane’s World, one of his favorite SL locations, to romp and play.  While he chased dragonflies at the water’s edge, I snapped these photos to share with you.

I hope the rest of your week goes well, and look forward to chatting with you again soon on Sunday.  As always, happy shopping!

Baubles! and Stripes


I’m always thrilled when EvelineInTheBox sets out a new group gift, and I was not disappointed with the latest giftie. This pretty shirt with its upward dipped front, rivets at the neckline, and colorful stripes is not only fun, but also beautiful. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh sizes for a multitude of mesh bodies, including: Maitreya, Hourglass and Physique, Freya, Isis, and Venus. It fits like a dream and since the group is FREE to join, the gift is completely FREE as well.

I paired this boho reminiscent style shirt with a pair of earrings that I felt had the same feel. I picked up the Baubles! gift earrings FREE as a group gift as well. This group is also FREE to join. There were two other gifts setting out for you to enjoy… another pair of earrings as well as a pretty necklace.

Fields of Gold

Snapshot_001Good day Fabulous Readers!  Have you heard about The Good Gorean Hunt?  Full on gorean wear is not my usual fashion, but I do like to take little bits of fashion from different style categories and add them to my usual look for a change.  I really like how it turned out today!

When I heard that The Good Gorean Blog was celebrating five years and was hosting a free hunt, I checked out the hunt prizes and there are several items that I quite liked!  In my photos, I am wearing the Alethea Gown that I picked up at Posh Tales for The Good Gorean Hunt.   It comes with a texture change hud that allows for a ton of different colour options as well as you can wear or remove the cape.  This is a fitmesh creation and comes with an alpha layer if you need it, so it should fit on whatever body you are in whether it be system or one of the mesh bodies.

I also made a stop to Aisling and looked for the hidden “G” icon and was pleasantly surprised that it was a beautiful jewelry set called Alyse.  Alyse includes the necklace shown as well as a pair of matching earrings that are unfortunately hidden in my hair :/.  I promise they are just as lovely as the necklace and WAY worth the time it takes to find the hunt icon🙂.

Not Just Another Fantasy

Not Just Another Fantasy

Halloween is the perfect time to fill out your fantasy wardrobe… and 7 Deadly s{K}ins is making that a little easier this month with two excellent fantasy skins as their group gifts. You first saw the Ladies gift shown off [HERE] by Sheidey. But the men were not left out this month.

If you are a group member (the group fee is 150L) you can pick up the men’s gift at 7 Deadly s{K}ins in the fantasy tone shown above. It includes 3 versions… a clean face and 2 different white bearded versions, each with different brow options. Included in the package are appliers for slink hands and feet as well as the slink body appliers and omega appliers as well. Be sure to hit “accept” when you see all the pop ups, as the omega package does come separately from the slink package. You don’t want to miss getting the extra box.

I also picked up this very nice FREE necklace as part of the Men Only Hunt. I thought it had a fantasy feel and decided to include it in my post. This is the gift from etham and is a fairly elaborate and well made silver and blue design on a black cord. It would be an excellent addition to any gentleman’s wardrobe. Just teleport to etham and hunt down the iconic beer symbol and this classic pendant is yours FREE.
