Don’t let the days go by

Don't let the days go by

I can’t even think of any car terms off the top of my head to throw out and pretend I’m doing something to this shiny red car in front of me. Lame. But let’s skip all that and cut to the chase. No reason to be coy, right? My butt looks fantastic in these shorts. And even better? Yours will too!

Just 1L!

I grabbed this outfit by N-Uno on the marketplace for 1L! I realize I’m not showing most of it, but here’s the marketplace link so you can see the vendor ad for yourself. The shirt and shorts are separate pieces and they each come in 5 sizes, L-XXS. The outfit comes in the color I’m showing as well as a bunch of others. All for 1 silly little L!

Fifty Linden Friday!

I love a good pair of boots. I got the ones that I’m wearing here from paper arrow for Fifty Linden Friday. There was this pair and another darker shade for 50L each. Do I even need to say that I bought both? Yeah, ’cause I bought both… Each pair comes sized for Maitreya and Slink.

There are lots of other great things available for FLF as well. And don’t forget that the Saturday sale is tomorrow!

Pink Like A Flamingo

Pink Like A Flamingo
Happy Tuesday Fab Free! Once again adorable pink flamingos have found their way onto the Fab Free blog. I think this must be the summer of flamingos. Flamingo summer maybe? Either way I dig it! These cute short shorts are a new group gift at zOOm. You also might recall I mentioned a free group gift hairstyle at Letituier in my previous post “See No Evil.” This pink and blonde dip dyed hairstyle is it! Lastly, I added this cute little polka-dotted dollarbie top from Teepa to complete the look. I hope you like it!

The Hair – This fun summer hairstyle is a free group gift at Letituier. The Letituier group is free to join at this time, so don’t miss out. Also if you haven’t shopped the Retirement Sale happening at Letituier, you’ll want to be sure to do that too. The sale hairstyles are just 55 linden per color pack. This group gift style comes in the single color shown.

The Top – This one is for the Maitreya Lara body wearers. This tiny tube top is a Marketplace dollarbie by Teepa. It comes in the single size, however there are other Marketplace listings for the same top in different textures in the Teepa Marketplace store.

The Shorts – These shorts are so cute on, even though they are a tad shorter and lower than I would usually wear. They are a current group gift at zOOm. The zOOm group is 75 linden to join at this time and there is an entire shelf full of group gifts available. If flamingos aren’t you’re thing, don’t worry, this gift has a texture change hud with 10 different textures to pick from. All of them are cute!

Mind Strong, Body Strong

Mind Strong, Body Strong

Why can’t RL jogging look this cute? SL me is all adorable and non-sweaty. And she’s not wearing socks, can you imagine the blisters? Okay, maybe I’m taking the SL vs RL comparison too far. I just know that when I found these shorts I had to wear them. This is another post overflowing with freebies, but accidentally this time. I went to build an outfit around my shorts and all the other fabulous free stuff was already hiding in the depths of my inventory. Let me tell you, my inventory is truly an amazing yet terrifying place.

Shorts

I really love these shorts. They are an in-store free gift at Hashtag for pride month, but they are still out. I didn’t need to join a group or anything, just tp in, give it a click, and they were mine! They are grey with stripes along the bottom and say “love is love” on one side. Only one size is included, for Maitreya.

Shirt

I didn’t realize that this free top by Vinyl had been out for so long. Love first showed it almost 2 years ago, but it is still really great. It comes sized for:

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

It also comes with a HUD full of color options – it can be plain, say the names of different cities, and the bra straps underneath can be changed too or just removed. If you don’t already have it, then you need it. Just head over to Vinyl, join the free group, and it’s on the wall will a bunch of other great freebies too.

Shoes

These shoes are a Teleport Hub group gift at The Oak. There is a version for guys also and the female ones comes in 2 sizes – Classic and Maitreya. And they are super customizable. The HUD that is included has 8 colors and each part of the shoe can be changed individually. The possibilities are endless…well not endless but there’s like, a lot.

Pose

And finally the pose. I don’t know why I always list the pose last, it’s quite possibly the most important part of putting a picture together in my opinion. This one was only 1L on the marketplace here! Yes, please. Actually now that I’m looking again, there are a bunch of other 1L and 10L poses in Korper’s marketplace store as well. I’m gonna have to go back and get me some more poses!

Strolling Through a Secret Garden

Posies from a Secret Garden

Hello Fabulouses.  Happy Friday!  I’m popping in with a quick post to share one of the free gifts you can receive as a member of the Fabulously Free in SL group.  It’s such a cute little number!

Stop and Smell the Roses

The sleeveless tank dress in my photo is the latest gift from Glitter.  Featuring a cheerful floral print scattered across a white background, spaghetti straps, and an asymmetrical hemline, this frock was the perfect outfit for a stroll in the secret garden on the Strawberry Lake sim.  The gift package includes versions for a variety of mesh avatars (none for classic avatars).  To scoop up a copy for yourself, head over to the Glitter, make your way to the back of the shop on the other side of the staircase, and click the vendor.  This budget friendly dress is sure to become a summer time favorite!  There are a number of other free gifts available in the shop, and quite a few lucky chairs and a midnight mania board as well.  I’m crossing my fingers that I will be able to share the mania prize soon.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

Pretty Posies

To keep with the floral theme, I slipped on some LT Rose Earrings from Torakoun Sands that I discovered on the Marketplace for just 49L.  With three delicate rose blossoms and a pair of leaves, these baubles echoed the print of my new frock beautifully.  The text on the Marketplace listing is right on when it states the earrings are simple yet elegant.  I really like the bright pop of color they add to my look and thought they formed the perfect finishing touch.

Well, Ripley has that “I’m about to dig in the soft earth of this garden” glint in his eyes.  Before he gets us kicked out of the sim, I’d better go put a halt to his plans.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

HAPPY CANADA DAY FAB FREE!  Love and I (your two fave Canucks) are coming atcha from the True North, Strong and Free to tell you about some sweet Marketplace finds that will make your Canada Day celebrations just a little more awesome.  We’re spending the day by the water, enjoying a picnic and doing super Canadian things – like spotting moose, guzzling Maple Syrup and picking daintily at our poutine!  Well, more like chilling and having a beer, but you know… we like to keep the stereotypes going now and then!

Loads of Clothing, Eh?

Love and I raided the SL Marketplace to find all sorts of goodies for our red and white extravaganza!  It really is a treasure trove of cool stuff, and sometimes you come across some really affordable or free goodies, such as….

  • Aline’s FREE top by Kandee’s Fashions (sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink and in XS-XL)
  • Aline’s 2L Shorts by TCoD Design (sized for Maitreya, Physique and in XS-XL with an Alpha)

Let Freedom Ring, Let The White Dove Sing

Let Freedom Ring, Let The White Dove Sing

I love the 4th of July. Besides it being just a few days off from my birthday, it’s also just quintessential summer. The 4th of July means summer and summer means the beach. The beach makes me think of the boardwalk and that special time when it’s just about to get dark and almost time for fireworks. I love fireworks. And fireworks over water? A billion times better. Ah it’s truly the best time of the year.

If you don’t live in the US, this post is still for you too. The free stuff I have to show you is universally awesome, I promise!

Stars and Stripes

I thought I better wear my super cute and festive romper a few days early so that you’d have time to go grab it for the occasion. Just pop over to Elusive, join the free group, and it’s yours as a free gift! You’ll get the romper and a pair of red heels to go with it. The romper comes sized for:

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

Flips and Flops

I knew that I wanted flip flops to round out my look, and was so excited when I found a pair as a group gift at KC Couture. The KC group is only 25L to join and there’s a nice collection of gifts to scoop up for such a small amount of L! Among the free gifts are these great free flip flops. I would have happily paid 4 or 5 times the join price for them alone. The included HUD is full of color options for the strap and bunches of really cute color and pattern options for the bottom as well. There are sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. I know I’l get lots of use out of these great flip flops…when I remember to wear shoes, that is.

Ironics and Peaces?

Sometime picking a naming pattern for my headings is a mistake, but I’m not a quitter, okay? 😜 When I visited The Arcade earlier this month I made a mental note to go back to snap some shots. So yeah, I was the annoying girl obviously taking pictures at an event. BUT it’s almost over so it’s not like I was taking up space and preventing other people from being able to tp in. This great pose I’m using is called Ironic Peace and it is free! It’s available from Pacagaia on the marketplace for 0L. Ger it here. I think it’s the perfect pose (at the perfect price!) in the perfect location.

Misty Summer Morn

Misty Summer Morn

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are pausing during our walk on this misty morning to tell you about a gorgeous dress that I picked it up as a free group gift over at Patty CK Fashion.  It features lacy white fabric accented with bands of geometric patterns in bright, jewel tones.  I just love the contrast between light and dark colors in this frock!  Dora’s off the shoulder design makes it terrific for summer, and maxi dresses are absolutely my favorite go to’s (even in RL).  To pick up a copy for yourself, you need to be a member of the Teleport Hub Group, which has a 10L join fee, but as I’ve said before, this is one group that is well worth the investment, because it offers members free gifts across the grid.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

We are off to explore the beautifully landscaped grounds of the Devin’s Eye sim.  Until next time, happy shopping!

You Can’t Lose Me

You Can't Lose Me

Hi! Just popping in to show you a cute little bikini and skirt, perfect for all of your bikini and skirt wearing needs. It is sized only for Maitreya bodies. I got it on the marketplace for just 5L! It is also available at Hash Tag’s inworld store as a group gift. The group is 50L to join. I love how the ruffles in the skirt are mimicked along the top as well. It’s just a fun thing to throw on that can be dressed up or down. And you know how I feel about versatility? I’m for it!

Wow, this is the shortest post from me ever! We’ll call it “the one where Allison didn’t ramble” and hold it fondly in our hearts forever. Until next time, laters!

Summer Kiss

SummerKiss

Hey there Fabulous Readers!  I don’t know why I haven’t tried this before…  but I did a search on Marketplace for “wearable demos” and came across a few cute and very affordable things that I hadn’t seen before!

What Is A Wearable Demo?

A wearable demo for those of you that might not be familiar with the term in Second Life, means that it’s a demo outfit, available for free or at a super low price (usually between 1-10L) but has no demo words written across it, or a box around it or a giant tag over your head.  It’s just a little tester to win you over, and perhaps purchase the outfit in other colours if you like it…  It’s totally wearable!

Hope You’re Not Booty Shy!

This evening, I’m showing you the ShuShu Summer Kiss Outfit which is a wearable demo available on Marketplace for just 10L!  This super short, bootilicious bibbed dungaree set in a black printed denim comes with the yellow animal printed crop top that you see me wearing.  Such a cute outfit, at a fraction of the cost – if you like the colours (which I did!).

Sizes Included:

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

Mesh Body – Maitreya Lara

Flippin’ Your Fins You Don’t Get Too Far

Flippin' Your Fins You Don't Get Too Far

Another day, another great bikini. I love my slife.

Moshi on the Marketplace

The bathing suit I’m wearing today is by Moshi (only for Maitreya bodies) and is available for 1L on the marketplace! It’s a super cute style and I like that there’s a little more to it than the itty bitty bikinis that I’ve been wearing recently. There’s a little more coverage but it’s still fun and sexy. Not that there’s anything wrong with the skimpy swimsuits but well diversity is the spice of life, right?

Fortuna at Imaginarium

I got this necklace at Imaginarium. It’s a gift there from Fortuna. When you get to Imaginarium, click the sign to join the free Gimme Gacha group. You’ll need that tag activated in order to pick up this necklace and all of the other gifts sitting at most of the stores. They are all free group gifts. Yay!
