Charlie

I want to start this post by stating that I do not wish to spark any debates or discussion about the horrific incident that occurred earlier this month in France. However, I do think that it is important and I want to show these items so that those who wish to show their support are aware that they can do so, even in Second Life.

The phrase “Je Suis Charlie” or “I am Charlie” has become synonymous with the idea of freedom of speech which is something I wholeheartedly believe in. Earlier this week a kind Fab Free reader let me know about this truly beautiful necklace from Lapointe and BastChild. This necklace comes in a male and female version, and includes a resize script. The details are incredible, and I love the addition of the other charms. You can pick it up for FREE right at the Lapointe & BastChild landing point.

In addition to the necklace from Lapointe and BastChild I came across this well done shirt from Stelloane on the Marketplace. The shirt is fully mesh and comes in several sizes. I chose this particular top over a few others that I saw because I liked the open back style with the long sleeves, and I liked that the phrase was in both French and English. The top is also FREE on the Marketplace.

Honestly, I could do an entire weeks worth of posts and then some on generous gifts available in world and on the Marketplace dedicated to this important subject.

To go with my statement top and necklace, I picked up are certain to become my new favorite pair of mesh jeans. First, I’m a sucker for jeans, and I’ve been in need of a new black pair. These jeans are from a shop called 7Mad.Ravens, and they are today’s Saturday sale items. Yes it’s a tad late in the day, but you still have a few hours left to snag them for $75 lindens. I specifically like that they are higher wasted than most jeans, and they have the perfect little flared cuff!

Also a Saturday Sale item, this winged hairstyle from Soonsiki! I love retro hair styles and this very much reminds me of an exaggerated “Farrah Fawcett” style. It too is just $75 lindens today only, so hurry over to Soonsiki to pick it up!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Hey there, my dears! Today, I’m getting my rockabilly on with KC Couture!

rockabilly_001

This is the “Bellavita Coat Dress” and it’s one of the many sale items over at KCC right now.  For just 60L you get the dress as I’m showing it but it’s also usable as a coat over your own outfit. You also get a HUD with a flat out ton of choices. You can separately change the color and pattern of the “bra” top part and the slice of skirt showing under the black part. There are 20 solid colors plus 20 patterns AND 3 different metal button colors. In the Bellavita fat pack you also get a pair of SLink High heels. However, I wanted to show you the Roma heels for Slink High feet that is KCC’s Second Life Frees and Offers gift this month.

rockabilly_004

Completing my doo wap look today is the pink “Do-Rag/Head Band #11″ from  Silver’s Trading Post that I found on the Marketplace. The bandana comes in both the full kerchief I’m wearing and a head band style. All for 10L. The earrings and necklace are also marketplace finds. These are the “Cherry Earrings and Pendant” from Something for Everyone by Lillia Fleury for only 5L!

All I need is a great pair of shoes

And so we reach mid week, my dears. I hope all is well in your RL and your SL. The weather is still miserable here so I’ve been camped out in my SL finding all kinds of fun free and almost free things for us. After the Cart sale at the Wash, I decided to check out a designer who is quickly becoming one of my favorites: DUH!

yellowflats_001

The shop is full of fantastic shoes and even more fantastic bargains. These cute gold ballet flats are a completely free for everyone gift! The ‘Sunny Yellow Sequin Slippers’ fit system feet for y’all who haven’t gone the SLink route. Simple and so well made, I think these will fill many a wardrobe spots. Next is my favorite find today – The ‘Rainy Day Boots’!

rainboots_001

These purple polka dotted rain boots are another free gift! The ‘Rainy Day’ comes in seven colors but only the purple ones are a free gift. I fell so in love with these so much I had to build an outfit around them. I found the ‘Ladies Trench Coat Chanel’ from Divine Essence Designs on the Marketplace for just 15L. Lastly, is the umbrella. This is the full perm mesh ‘Umbrella’ from Flax Pye Studio also on the Marketplace. This is a blank mesh for builders and comes with both an opened and closed version and the color and shadow patterns. All for 20L.

Classy Girls

Snapshot_004Good evening Fabulous Readers :)  It seems SL is  undergoing some emergency maintenance and has every so rudely kicked me out lol, but lucky for me it was after I had these pictures already taken!  So..  I can share news of the classy new group gift at ANIN a GRIS with you. The beautifully textured ecru Sabrina Dress I am wearing today is the gift you can pick up after joining the FREE inworld ANIN a GRIS group.

Need a pair of sweet heels to go with your new dress?  These will cost you a little… but not much!  The SHEY Sweet Bow Stilettos that add onto the Slink High Feet are available on marketplace for just 30L.  The best part about this super low price?  It incudes a HUD that allows for 35 different colours, which means you can wear these with about anything!

Monday Grey

Happy Monday, my dears!
It’s kind of gray and gloomy here in my RL and it put me in the mood for oversized cardigans and cozy things. Mr. Poet has supplied just the thing for a chilly wet day: their “Bat Sleeved Knit Coat”. Now, technically, this cardigan and scarf are for the boys but I think they look great on anyone.
Snapshot_001

This is the gray cardigan but you also get a black one and a blue one in the gift. The “Wide Scarf” is a separate gift, it is resizable and has ten color changes. I was really impressed with the quality of the builds on these items. Both gifts are free for everyone!

Topping this casual day look is my new do from Cheveux. This is their Christmas gift now available to everyone for 1 little Linden. You can find it in the main store or on the Marketplace. I love the soft mix of browns and golds in the aptly named “Brown Mix. The style also comes in a pale blonde in the gift.

Y’all stay warm today!

Escaping, from the Winter Blues, in red!

While I am not one to complain about winter too much, being a true Canadian girl and enjoying winter, sometimes I do get tired of it. Thank goodness for SL! Whenever I get a touch of the winter blues, I log in, and find a pretty summery sim to visit. That is just what I did this morning :) Best of all, it helped to show off a few goodies for you all!

redbeach1

It started with my earrings. When I logged in after work yesterday, one of the first notices I received was about a new group gift gacha for the really quirky and fun, Nathalie earrings, from Pure Poison! Naturally, I headed right over, threw on my group tag, and tried my luck. Lucky me, I got the rare Red Polka pair, but there are 7 different colours to win. The group is free to join, and all group members get 1 free play on the blue gacha machine. If you are not a member, or have already used up your one play and wanted a different colour, there is a green machine that you can play for L$50 a play.

redbeach3

The other free group gift I am showing off is this month’s women’s skin from 7 Deadly s{K}ins. I was originally going to show this off in a different post, but when I realized I was going to do a beach scene for this one, I knew this lovely, slightly sun-kissed skin would be perfect. In RL I don’t develop much of a tan, I guess that also shows me as a true Canadian, eh? LOL. So the January group gift from 7 Deadly s{K}ins was just perfect. This gift comes with SLink Hands and Feet, Banned, phatazz, and Tango appliers, and the skin comes in both a cleavage, and no-cleavage version. The group fee is only L$50 atm, however, it bounces all over the place, so if you haven’t joined yet, I would take advantage of this low fee before it’s raised up.

redbeach2

Lastly, a beach scene would not be complete without the perfect bathing suit. On a whim, I jumped into the Marketplace, searched for red, mesh, bikini, and on  the very first page of results was this really cute dollarbie from Chipmunk Clothing, HERE! I’m not familiar with this store, but after having a look through the rest of their offerings, most items being L$100 or under, I am glad I’ve found it. My bikini is mesh, as I wanted, and it fits perfectly, I actually didn’t even need to use the alphas for my size, which is medium. For only L$1, it is well worth giving it a try for yourself.

OK lovelies, I think I am going to hang around this beach for a little while more, as I just realized it is snowing outside….and I like the sun and sand much better. LOL!! I will be back soon though. So, until then, TTFN :)

I’m not such a Raggle Taggle Gypsy-Ohhhh!

Well hello lovelies! How is your week going? Mine has been up and down, I have to admit. However, that is one of the good things about being a FabFree blogger, searching for great stuff to show you all, always brings me up :) I find, that even if I am online, yet not in SL, I will, at times, just browse the Marketplace looking for things I can show off. So I thought I’d show you some outfit pieces that work well together that are from the Marketplace, as well as an inworld group gift. Ok? OK!

gypsy1

So, I will start this by admitting that I have had the outfit that my skirt came from, in my inventory, for a few months *winces* . I know!! How could I have found something so pretty and not shown it to you right away? I’m bad ;) . Good news though, by rediscovering it in my inventory, it made me want to go check out the MP store that I had originally gotten it from, Iffyta, again. My skirt is one half of the Jenna’s Fall outfit that is still available for L$1 HERE. In going back to the MP store, I found the Allie’s Winter outfit HERE, for only L$1 as well, and had to pair the shirt that was in it, with the skirt I already had. Both of these are part of a skirt and tied crop top outfit, and both come with texture change huds for each piece, that have 8 different choices. These pieces are mesh, and come in the standard sizes. Make sure you browse through the rest of the store, as there are many great deals to be found, including matching boots for each of these pieces.

gypsy2

The inworld group gift I am showing off is from one of my faves, Maxi Gossamer. She is currently offering a set of really pretty silver and black bangles, which come in several versions for you to be able to customize your look however you’d like. The MG group is free to join, and all you have to do is put on your tag, and touch the group gift ad board, and these babies are yours for free.

My week is looking up already! Freebies and cheapies always make things better, don’t you think? LOL. OK all, I will be back soon. Until then, TTFN *dances away*

Some beach, somewhere…..

Hello, my dears! I don’t know about y’all but it’s so so very cold here in the States this week! There’s snow all over the place and we’re not going to get above freezing today or tomorrow. So this is the perfect time to go to the beach! Right? Okay, maybe not in real life but in SL it’s beach time any time! With that in mind, I took a run at the 0L  Summer in January Hunt  . Besides, January IS the middle of Summer in New Zealand and Australia! ** waves to her Kiwi Friends!**

BeachBunny1

This is a very smexy offering from Ayva’s Attic. There is a great pair of men’s board shorts in the gift as well for you gentlemen. The barely there halter top and shorty sarong skirt might not be the best for surfing but you will surely turn some heads on the beach.

Next is the gift from Grumble: a strapless bikini in my favorite color – purple.  And when you’re ready to take a break from the surf, you can relax on this beach blanket from Kabuki Creations. It comes with the stack of towels, a bottle of wine and the great little vintage radio. There are two pose balls – one sit and one stretched out sun bathing pose.

beach_003

But what if you’re stuck in winter and can’t get to the beach? Ms. B. Designs has got the answer – your own wading pool! The pool comes with poses for two and is fillable with water or.. ice cubes if you really need to cool off.  So just slip on some shades, like these from B. Barbie Style, grab a yummy ‘adult beverage’ served in a coconut and enjoy your January!

Royal Death

Purple Candy Queens

Hello lovies, I hope you’ve all been enjoying your weekend! I had one heck of a day! It feels good to be back her and blogging. So this post includes some great finds available at Fab Free Headquarters, and a few extras to help complete this fantasy look. The inspiration for this style which I would call some sort of cross between steam-punk and a gothic graphic novel villain, came from the FFHQ gift from Queen’s.

This macabre helmet is the current gift from Queen’s out at FFHQ, and like all FFHQ gifts it is absolutely FREE! The helmet has a sinister feel with skulls and red roses. Also, it includes a re-size script to suit various hairstyles. It’s been a while since I’ve put together something suited for fantasy role play of any kind, so this was super fun.

While at FFHQ I spotted another gift that went perfectly with my new helmet. The jumpsuit from Purple Candy is also FREE and is just the right shade of red to match the roses in the helmet from Queen’s. The outfit includes prim cuffs for the pant legs as well as appliers for several mesh bodies, breasts, and booties!

Right now at Fri.day you can get the perfect pair of chunky black heels, along with a matching red pair for FREE with your Fri.day group tag! These heels are meant to be worn with either Slink High feet, the Belleza body, or the Maitreya body. The Fri.day group is just $50 lindens to join which makes these heels a steal! These shoes are the December gift, however they are still available.

Feeling quite dastardly in my outfit, I topped the look off with a leather bolero, some tattoos, and a monocle, because why not?! I really do like this look a lot. I think it’s dangerous and fun with a lot of role play potential. I hope you enjoy it just as much.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

One Last Hunt…

Hello one last 2014 time, my dears! I hope the end of this year and the beginning of 2015 find you all happy and healthy. Now, I know most people spend new year’s eve partying but I prefer a little Hunt action. Let’s take a quick look at Nevermore Hunt’s Winter Solstice hunt.

solstice1_001

First is … a Sweater dress! Tiffany Designs has put out this soft beige sweater tunic for us with lovely cozy details.

solstice3_001

Baby Monkey has given us even more sweater-y goodness in a gorgeous aborigine purple. The prize includes the tights and the boots and not one but two sweaters: the longer EvaMay and the shorter Marah. Ya gotta love two for one!

solstice2_001

And a quick word about the last two poses. These are freebie gifts for everyone at Icons of Style main store. Just look around the walls for the giveaways. The second picture is the ‘Magic Spheres’ pose which comes with a plethora of soap bubble- like globes to rez. The third picture’s pose is from the IOS pack “Summer Girl” which you can find both on the market place and at the store.

The Winter Solstice Hunt runs until the 21st of January so it’s the perfect way to start your SL New Year off right!
