C’est la Monday

C'est la Monday

Hello Fab Free, I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m having a serious Monday! Thankfully, there’s always some retail therapy available in Second Life. I think it’s definitely true that shopping is a form of therapy, even in a virtual setting. I know I feel better when I get to buy new things. hehehe That being said, it’s always better when the stuff you acquire is FREE. **Note Added 1/19/15**Here’s more proof this was a total case of the Monday’s! Somehow I missed that our lovely Julianna had already shown this great jacket, be sure to check out her post here also.  
C'est la Monday 1 This pretty leather jacket from Virtual Diva Couture is their current group gift. I love the sort of dark mauve color of the leather, I think it make the jacket very feminine, while keeping an edgy style. The gift is FREE, you just need to join the Virtual Diva Couture in world group, which is FREE to join. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes, and a fitted mesh version.

Another super cute group gift are these pretty star hairpins. This gift from C’est la Vie includes several hairpins in gold and two silver versions, each with a different colored star. I really like this gift because cute hair accessories are not something you see often. The gift is FREE to all C’est la Vie group members, and the group is FREE to join as well.

Here’s to a better Monday, Enjoy!

A great pair of shoes can change your life…..

Just ask Cinderella!

Hey FabFree-ers! I just couldn’t leave well enough alone, I guess.

A great pair of shoes can change your life.....

Plus, all the cool kids are doing extra posts with free and almost free shoes… so here’s mine too. All of these shoes are from the Black or White Hunt 2 which goes on until January 31st. There are two paths, one easy the White Path and one hard, the Black Path. All the participating designers have put out two prizes, one for each Path so I’ll note which Path the shoes are on. Plus, this is a 0L hunt!

  1. Reese – Wicked (FREE/0l/Black or White Hunt 2 prize on the Black Path)
  • If you are hunting both paths, you don’t want to miss the White path prize from Wicked because it matches these gorgeous heels perfectly! Reese fits Mesh avatars “High Feet”.

2. Skully Sneakers – DemotiK(FREE/0L/Black or White Hunt 2 prize on the White Path)

  • These unisex sneakers will thrill your goth heart a little bit. They come with three mesh rigged sizes and one unrigged pair for Classic avatars.

3. Waya – Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes (FREE/0L/Black or White Hunt 2 prize on the Black Path)

  • Waya comes with a resize script built in and it’s own alpha layer for a great fit if you’re mesh or Classic.

4. Gelsey – Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes (FREE/0L/Black or White Hunt 2 prize on the White Path)

  • I adore these cute little flats! They are , however, for System feet. But the alpha layer and the shoes base makes for a perfect fit.

“Give a Girl a Great Pair of Shoes…..

… and she can conquer the world!” – Marilyn Monroe

I know y’all are here for the shoes…. so let’s jump straight in!

Give a girl a great pair of shoes

  1. Leather Boots – Belle Epoque (FREE/0L/Group Gift group is 50L to join)
  •  These boots come in three colors, the grey I’m showing, brown and a charcoal black. They don’t come with an alpha layer but it didn’t take much effort to find one in the inventory that fit.

2.  +  3.  Kawaii Sneakers  + Mary Jane – Sweet Tea Couture (FREE/0L/Group Gift group is 100L to  join)

  • The super cute little sneakers were Sweet Tea’s entry for the Kawaii Hunt. Now they are on the Group Gift Vender board. They come with both SLink flat feet and system feet versions.  The fee to join the group is 100L but there are a ton of past gifts available on that Vender Board so you’ll recoup it very quickly. Plus, Sweet Tea is one of the more generous designers setting out lots of specials and group gifts.  Gifts just like #3 the September Mary Janes. They’re on the Vender Board as well. The gift comes with SLink, Belleza, Maitreya and Classic Avatar versions. Oh and one ‘heads up’, you’ll need to pay the vender 1L which you will immediately get right back.

 

Give a girl a great pair of shoes

4. Reindeer Cuteness Princess Boots – Dirty Princess (FREE/0L/ Group Gift group is free to join)

  • I can’t be very professional about this pair of boots. Cause I love ’em. The details are wonderful and the build is just amazing. Plus, they’re free for Dirty Princess group members. The Dirty Princess shop is more like a small SIM and it’ full of great bargains but the boots take the cake. The boots come in system friendly un-rigged, SLink, SLink H.G., The Mesh Project and Maitreya versions.

5. Valeria – Miss Canning (FREE/0L/Group Gift group is free to join)

  • Wouldn’t these be perfect for Spring? And you know that’s right around the corner. Valeria fits my SLink High Feet but I bet they’d fit most mesh high feet too. Miss Canning’s group is free to join and there a bunch of past gifts available. Well worth the trip.

6. Dash – Euphoria Couture (FREE/0L/Hunt Prize for Newify Your Body Hunt) 

  • Who can turn down a sleek pair of stiletto heels? I sure can’t. Plus they’re free to hunt down. The Newify Your Body Hunt runs until January 31st so don’t delay!

Crazy Crazy Cat Lady

Meow, FabFree-ers!

Crazy Crazy Cat Lady

As y’all might remember, I’m a crazy cat lady in RL. So I’m wondering if Nani Poses put this ‘Crazy Cat Lady’ Gacha out at the OMGacha Fair just for me! This is one of two different rares on the ten pose machine and I was lucky enough to pull it.  Each pose comes with it’s own cat or collection of cats. The nice thing is it’s only 50L per play so… I admit… I played a bunch.

Just a machine or two down… I found these adorable ‘Kitty Ear Stretcher’ earrings from Secrets. There are ten common colors in both silver and black and four rares. The earring comes with a resize script so if you don’t fancy the ‘stretcher’ look you can resize it down to look more like a regular earring. I sized mine up to fit my already stretched lobes.

Crazy Crazy Cat Lady

So now I knew I needed to do a “cat crazy” post and 1313 Mockingbird Lane supplied more inspiration with these fantastic ‘Crazy Cat Lady Slippurs’. These cuties are Belleza and Maitreya Mesh body compatible as well as compatible with the system feet and SLink flat feet.

Crazy Crazy Cat Lady

The I saw Toxic High’s ‘Hold a Kitty’ gacha and well, who doesn’t want to hold a kitty? I picked up ‘Gothic Kitty’ to cuddle with for only 35L per play.

I still wasn’t done with OMGacha…. My new hair style is from Doe and it’s called Bryn. I pulled the solid colored style but it also comes in a double color version. The machine is 75L to play. I’d never had a hair from Doe and I have to say I’m very impressed with the color and the build.

But there’s still not enough cats in this post! So I headed over to the Marketplace and found the ‘My Little Kitty’ set from Stressless for only 2L. The set comes with the purple dress and a set of purple heels for SLink High Feet if you want to wear it as an “out and about” outfit. I am choosing to wear it more like lounge wear so I added the purple ‘Knitted Leggings’ from Enai, also from the Marketplace, for 1 little Linden.

Whew… that’s a bunch of kitties… I think my KittyCats Nox and Flurry are getting jealous……

This is the super stylish Fever Mesh Pastel Jacket. It’s free to group members this month and the group is also free to join! While you’re at Virtual Diva Couture be sure to check out this huge shop and the tons of great styles everywhere.

If you remember my last post, I showed you Miss Canning’s free group gift jeans in the black. I’m showing the blue version here today. Plus, these come in a green tone as well.

I’m also wearing the ‘Simple Dragon Choker’ from Jinx. You can pick up this lovely at the  Fair Play  event for free. Jinx has generous set it out as a free for everyone gift just for stopping by.  Fair Play runs until January 27 so don’t delay.

I'm No Angel

Last but not least is my gorgeous graceful pose. This is from Eternal Dreams’ “Guardian Angel” Gacha machine, pose #8.  The circle of glowy feathers are included in both gold and silver. However the wings are not included. This gacha was at the Fantasy Carnival, if it looks familiar, but now it’s available at the main store… along with a ton of other gachas!

Sweet Red

Greeting FabFree-ers!

Sweet Red

Apparently, I am on a red kick. My last post featured the lovely red dress from More Than Ever and today I’ve got all kinds of ravishing red from Sweet Tea Couture. This is the ‘Buckhead Turtleneck’ sweater in red and it’s one of the Group Gifts for December. The sweater comes in both a male and female version. Both versions feature a system layer gift plus an ‘All in One’ HUD for your SLink, Maitreya and Omega applier needs.

I did say ‘one’ December Gift because there’s two. My sheer red hose are also a Group Gift. The ‘Truly Sheer’ comes with both a red and a green version. Again, they come in the system layer and with the HUD for appliers.

Sweet Tea Couture’s group has a one time 100L fee to join. However, there are so so many past Group Gifts to pick up! You’ll make you Lindens back with one shot.

Last Minute but Very Sweet

Hello FabFree Folks…  you still have just a little bit of time to get over to the Wash and the Cart Sale!

Last Minute but very sweet

After all the hard work here on the blog ;)   I needed a nice walk through the winter wonderland SL has become in so many spots.  But before I went on a stroll I had to grab this spiffy ‘Hounds tooth coat’ from the London People Cart at the Wash. I love the classic styling and the very generous Designer tossed in the pair of trendy spectacles to top off the look!  I also picked up a pair of cozy earmuffs because… well, I have a lot of ear to cover when the weather turns nippy. These are the ‘London Girl’ earmuffs and they are completely resizable to get a perfect fit. They also come with a HUD to choose eight different textures/colors.

Last minute but very sweet

I also checked out the Secret Wednesday Yard Sale and found some great basics to punch up my outfit. Keeping my legs toasty are the black chenille tights from the ‘Dreary Day’ pack from Sweet Tea Couture. The pack, for system layers and a huge applier HUD, comes with two textures of tights in white, off white, black and grey. That’s eight pairs of comfy tights if you’re counting. And all for 49L. The Yardsale is a little different from the normal Secret Wednesday sales which take place in the merchants shop. The Yard sale is it’s own location and each shop can offer up to five items from 49L to 100L. But it’s one day only! So hurry hurry!

The End is near!

The end is near!

The End is Near

The end of the Cart Sale at the Wash, that is! And you don’t want to miss out! The Carts all feature prices of 10L or less plus lots of designers have set out free gifts for the event. While you’re there, check out the Foxy Cart. You’ll be very glad you did! I picked the ‘Ella’ dress after much debate on what I wanted to show off. I love the simple styling of the dress itself plus it comes with a HUD to change it up into one of four colors/patterns. I fell in love with the polka dots ’cause… who wouldn’t? Ella comes in the standard Mesh sizes XS-XL and an alpha layer.

The Cart sale lasts until January 6th so hurry hurry hurry to get Foxy!

A Highlands Lady

Hey there, FabFree folks!

RennHunt_001

Even as the new year is starting up, some things are winding down. I almost missed the nifty little Holiday Hunt over on Renaissance Island. The good folks at Renaissance Island have hidden 22 gifts all over the town each one priced at 0L. My favorite has to be this gorgeous tartan gown, Bayberry from G. Sloane. It has a nice holiday feel if you need something for next year’s December role plays but it isn’t overly Christmas-y. I added a picture so you can see the gown without the stole.

RennHunt_002

I added the lovely ‘Silver Fox Stole’ from Tayren’s Fantasy Fashions to make my new gown a little more snow – friendly. This elegant stole comes with a longer scarf version for your gentleman too.

Don’t be intimidated by the idea of a ‘Sim wide’ Hunt, this hunt is fun and easy and the organizers provided a great list of hints you can grab from the Hunt poster at the landing point.  What you can’t do is wait around. This Hunt ends on January 6th so hurry over!
