Laundry Day

Laundry Day_001

I swear Love never runs out of clothes. Just look at everything she found here, and here, and here! I – on the other hand – am a guy. And I wear my stuff until I’m down to nothing but socks and underwear for laundry day. So that’s how I ended up at the laundry mat in my socks and my skivvy’s. At least I get to do it Faaaaaabulously.

Doing Laundry…

If you want to pick up my skivvy’s you won’t even have to leave the house for the underwear. My briefs are a 1L Marketplace gift from Brah. Now these pink undies aren’t for every guy, but if you want to show a little LGBT pride, you might want to add these to your wardrobe! I can’t tell you what they say on the behind, you’ll just have to make sure your adult settings on marketplace are set and check them out for yourself and decide if you want to be… risky in your underwear choices. They only come in an applier for the Belleza Jake Body.

The Socks!

Head over to the TMD event and pick up these awesome FREE socks by Cold Ash! They are perfect for hanging out at the laundry mat or at home… or anywhere really. Along with a color change hud and 10 color choices…

You’ll get socks to fit:

  • Jake
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP

No Pain, No Gain

And oh yeah… hurry up and stop by the Bodyfy Event. Pru showed you some of the awesome gifts in her post here and Astrid showed you a gift here. I stopped by to check things out myself and picked up this great tattoo from Identity. It was painless really! Just click the buy button for 0L and the tattoo was mine!

You get fresh and faded applier layers for the following bodies:

  • TMP
  • Omega
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya

Just Call Me Wednesday

Beach Goth
Hello Fab Free’rs! I am always happy you’re here. So I’m just going to come out and say it, I call this look “when you’re goth af but you love the beach.” It’s true, I do love the beach and I certainly have my goth girl moments. There isn’t anything about this look, parasol and all, that I don’t love. I feel like a grown-up Wednesday Addams on summer holiday. The parasol, this killer swimsuit, and the gorgeous heels are all fabulous free or otherwise inexpensive finds. Keep reading and I’ll tell you the where and how of getting each one.

The Parasol – I found this adorably goth parasol by Kaos on the Marketplace for just 20 linden. It is just as you see though it is difficult to see the slightly speckled texture in this photo. The hold pose is built in, and it has resize scripts. I was even able to use the parasol with another pose and the parasol’s hold pose still worked. You can get your copy of this darkly cute parasol from the Kaos store on the Marketplace. Other colors are available also.

The Bikini – When I saw the ad for this bikini from Kenodoxy, I had one of those “I need that” kind of reactions. It is every bit as cute on as it was in the vendor photo. The swimsuit is a free group gift at Kenodoxy. It comes in several mesh sizes. The Kenodoxy group is free to join, so no reason to miss out on this awesome gift.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Shoes – Those shoes though! I love everything about these free group gift shoes from VO.Z. The straps that wide around your calves are made to look like rose stems or vines. I think it makes them all the prettier. These shoes have a color change hud that lets you change the color of the heel, straps, the leaves, and the rose separately. To get your pair, head over to VO.Z and join the free-to-join VO.Z group.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Parasol w/hold – [Kaos] Cooky Parasol – Black – 20L on the Marketplace
HairRunAway – [RA] Wicca Hair – Grayscale
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento
Sunglasses – Petite Mort– Lennon round specs

Because sometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beast

Because sometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beastSometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beast ~Nicki Minaj

Good morning FabFree Readers! I don’t listen to a whole lot of Nicki Minaj, but I did borrow her quote because I love it!

Scandalizing News

Today I have news about a new group gift at Scandalize!  The other day, the Velure set in black was added to the giant wall of VIP gifts.  This set includes the Velure Skirt and Top in both plain and fluffy versions.  I went all out and put on the fluffy version, and I tried so hard to shoot this photo in a way where you could see all the cool fluff, but it’s really one of those outfits you gotta see inworld to do it real justice!  It also includes a belly chain which you can custom texture (not shown in my photo, but you can see it in the vendor ad below).  This group has a 100L group join fee for those of you that are not already in it.

Your Own Underdark!

In the dark_001

Your own Underdark…

It’s not often you get the chance to own your own Underdark, especially for the price of just 1L. Zyn is offering their Mini Underdark Skybox on the Marketplace for just that! 1L and it’s yours. It’s only 47 prim and it’s rather detailed, with multiple cavern rooms, a water pool, stalagmites and stalactites, mushrooms, lanterns, and more. The picture above is taken in part of one of the detailed caverns!

Ahhhh roleplay…

Roleplay is one of those fantastic past-times in Second Life and it’s always fabulous when you can come across some great gifts to add to your wardrobe. I stopped by the Menstuff lounge and there is a large assortment of menswear currently out that you can pick up for your one-time fee of 50L to the Menstuff group. Among the items was this “Morris” outfit. It’s really just a regular every day outfit, but since it doesn’t have any zippers and with the right accessories, I managed to turn it into a medieval one! It comes in a variety of mesh body sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Classic XS-XL + alpha
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Aesthetic

The details make the man

It’s the details that make this outfit work as a roleplay outfit. I stopped by Noble Creations and picked up some “details” to make this into a roleplay creation. The Noble Creations group is free to join and these gifts were free to pick up. I picked up the Prince in Leather neck piece to add over the top of the Morris shirt. I also picked up the Medici Pouch belt to add to my waist. Take note… this belt fit a little funny at first. I had to edit it to my shape, but it comes with a handy resizer that allows for resizing on all axises separately for a perfect fit!

The L’Homme Gift.

I think the L’Homme group gift from Noble Creations really makes this outfit. It’s a set of horned Bracers and Pauldrons that really stand out. You could add some weapons to this outfit to complete your look. Perhaps a shield and an axe or a sword and you’d be ready to go warrior! As always, the L’Homme group is free to join so this gift is free as well!

Happy roleplaying!

Sleepy Kitty

Sleepy Kitty
Hi There Fab Free’rs! Does anyone else have random bouts of insomnia? I know I cannot be the only one! Despite being sleepy the next day I can’t be mad about staying up late, it lead me to find some cute gifts from Kuni and Pink Pearl Designs to share with you.

Hair & Headband – How sweet is this sleek long hairstyle with the cute kitty-eared headband?! You can pick up this FREE group gift at Kuni. You will need to join the Kuni group, however it is FREE to join. This gift includes the hairstyle in 3 sizes, the kitty headband, a texture change hud for the headband, and 2 color huds for the hairstyle with tons of color options.

Tank & Boy Briefs – The waistband of these boy brief style undies says it all! This tank and underwear combo is just cute. To get your copy of this FREE gift you’ll need to take a trip to Pink Pearl Designs. There you’ll see this gift offered to La Femme Fatale Designer group members. This group is FREE to join. Once you have your La Femme Fatale Designer group tag on you can click the little pink gift bag and your gift will be sent to you. The gift comes in several mesh sizes and though the gift is titled “Dark Dayz Fat Pack” mine only included a pastel color hud. I am sure this is just a mistake of some kind, but I was not bothered by it. After all it is still a FREE gift and it is very cute.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), TMP, Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

**P.S. The cute sleepy pose I’m using for the photo in this post is part of a pack of “sleepy” static poses by YoGa that you can pick up for just 50 linden on the Marketplace!

Yes Please, All Them All

Yes Please! All Them All!

Hello Fabulouses!  I just can’t quite make up my mind which sweet to choose, but this is Second Life and our clothes always seem to fit no matter what these days, so I’m just going to have ALL THEM ALL!  This little cafe with all the treats is right beside the FabFree Info Hub on The Wash Sim, and you are welcome to hang out there any old time you like.

Where can you get this great dress for free?

I’ll tell you where!  At Petite Mort, you can find this darling Lavender Serene Lace Dress as a free lucky board prize.  You are required to join the Petite Mort inworld group to participate, however the group is still free to join.  The free group join may change in the future, as I remember there used to be a fee before the move, so make sure you join and stay in it just in case!

It is a little hard to see the arms, as I have added a sweater from my inventory by COCO, however it is sleeveless making this a great dress for the upcoming spring weather! (I hope it’s upcoming…  I see I am under another severe weather advisory for this afternoon again -.-).

Sizes Included:

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

Quiet Moments Lost in Thought

Lost in Thought

Well, hello there, Fabulouses, and Happy Saturday!  After a very late night (or early morning, I guess) in RL, I’m feeling a bit off track today.  I had to pick up a family member at the airport for a supposed midnight arrival, that turned out to be about an hour delayed.  The pupster and I didn’t get to sleep until about 2 am… eep!  Back in my wild and crazy  younger days, I could easily bounce back from a late evening, but now I find myself needing to sit and catch up.  I think Rip’s feeling the same way, because we both just plunked ourselves down near a fence line on the Whimberly sim this morning, and vegged.

Off the Shoulder

Luckily, it was a warm dawn in SL, so I was quite comfortable in my new “K2” shirt from the Petry Model Store.  This cropped top features a ruffled neckline, a one shoulder style, and a HUD that allows you to select from a variety of solid and print textures.  This floral pattern seemed just right for an early spring day, but if that’s not your style, you have 19 other options to choose from.  You can even opt to texturize the ruffle separately from the rest of the blouse.  Best of all, this little gem of a top is a free gift for members of the DM group, which is completely free to join!  In addition to this adorable shirt, there are a number of other free gifties set out; you’ll find them clustered on the wall nearby.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (no alpha layer)
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Slink Hourglass

I can see Ripley’s eyes drifting closed, and I’m feeling a bit sleepy myself.  We’re off to try to catch up on some Z’s.  Thankfully, we don’t have to deal with the time-change in our part of the world.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

I’m Sporting a Neon Rainbow

Spring is on the Way

Well, hello there, Fabulouses!  Since March came in like a lion in my neck of the woods, I’m sure err – I mean – hoping it will go out like a lamb with plenty of sunshine and warmer temperatures.  Hey, a girl can dream, right?  Well, even if it’s only “springish” in SL, I’m ready with a couple of budget-friendly fashion finds.  It must be a rainbow kinda day, because just like in Aline’s post {HERE}, I donned a rainbow of my own, but more about that later.

Start At the Top

My ruffled, multi-layer Calinda top features pale, vertical stripes near the neckline, and an organic, almost floral motif on the lower hems.  Made exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body, this cropped shirt will help me celebrate the arrival of warm days, and will be a fashion staple throughout the entire summer.  Tucked inside the package, you’ll find white and teal strapless versions, as well as the same shades sporting spaghetti straps for that extra assurance your shirt will stay in place.  I chose to pair mine with jeans, but in the dog days of summer, I’m sure it will look just as adorable with shorts.   It might be simply due to the shape of my avatar, but from a side angle, a bit more of my cleavage showed than I was comfortable with.  I solved that problem by wearing a long style of hair that covered that part of the girls up.  This little number is specially priced at just one linden dollar at LS Diamond’s marketplace shop.  I’m not sure how long this will last, so if you’d like to pick up a copy for yourself, I’d recommend visiting the store soon.

Then Add Some Brilliant Pops of Color

For a jaunty finishing touch, I slipped on the Neon bracelets that I picked up at Zendra for free, just for being a member of Fabulously Free in SL.  This set is so whimsical and cheerful!  A resize script is included so you can adjust the jewelry to fit your avatar.  I had to do that for myself, and it was easy-peasy!  No editing skills required at all.  You can wear the bracelets on both arms as I chose to do, or just one.  I’m including a close up shot below so you can get a better look of this free gift.  It’s a fun throwback to my younger days when I would wear layer upon layer of jelly bangles.

Neon Rainbow

And You are All Set for Spring!

Ok, I am ready (well, more than ready) for spring to arrive.  I’m sure looking forward to shedding my jacket and taking walks in the balmy sunshine.  How about you all?  Until my next post, happy shopping!

In the Pink on Date Night

Date Night

Valentine’s Day may be over, but the hearts still go on! ❤

Before Gavin and I headed out on our special evening, we stopped for a selfie, of course. I didn’t want to block his fabulous suit – which I’ll tell you about in just a minute – so I was happy to find this fun pose on by YKZ4 on the Marketplace for just 20L!

Men Can Shop Their Hearts Out, Too!

Love and Aline have already shown some awesome gifts available for the ladies at the Shop Your Heart Out Event, but guys, don’t feel left out. There are some fantastic gifts there for you, too!

Gavin picked up the Mesh Power Suit for Men Dark Red by ZED Designz at SYHO for the low, low price of FREE! The suit comes with black python leather boots, and there is a HUD included so you can change the texture of the shirt, vest, and tie. The HUD includes 24 shirt colors, 24 tie colors, and basically unlimited colors for the vest so you’ll be covered for lots of date nights!

Sizes are standard mesh XS-L with alpha layers. Click the boots for a resizer menu.

Oh, and there’s another free suit from ZED at SYHO, so be sure to grab them both!

Not Blah in Satin

Tres Blah recently set out a new group gift, and boy is it gorgeous! 😀

The sexy Satin Dress has a 1-shoulder cut-out and comes in sizes for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink mesh bodies. A 14-color HUD is included. This dress should really heat up your date night!

Tres Blah Vday Dress 2018

Hair We Are

I know, I’m terrible at thinking up titles and headings. 😛

But I wanted to mention that Gavin and I both picked up the FREE gift hair from Exile at SYHO. The Adam and Jemma Valentine’s Gift includes a fatpack of colors for both the guys and gals. There’s even a Bento version of Jemma for you ladies who like some movement in your hair.

Be sure to head over to the SYHO event before it closes on 26 February. The sim has been super crowded but should hopefully be less busy by now!
