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


Run If You Want It

6-12-22 $35L Sun Dori Papillion Boutique

Who never, ever had a favorite jean jacket? I still have mine sitting in a closet with all of the pins I collected during trips here and there. The odds are that it will never, ever fit again but I cant let go of it. It brings back lots of happy memories. I have bought or been gifted quite a few jackets over the years and they’ve all been quite nice. Today I found what might possibly be my new favorite on sale!

One in a Million, er, Melon?

Oh, the cuteness! Not only will this jacket keep you warm on cool days and nights. Everyone can see how special you really are. You all know how I love the $35L Sunday sales. The Summer Autumn Jacket offering at Dore Papillion Boutique does all of the above. If the longer cut and rolled up sleeves don’t look comfy enough then the soft denim may convince you. The “cherry on top” is the artwork on the back proclaiming you as “One in a Melon”. This jacket is sized only for Maitreya.

Note: The $35L sale ends at Midnight SLT.

Ta-ta for now folks!

Hey ya Fab Fam! I probably don’t even need to say it but… it’s Tuesday!!  which means it’s time for 25L Tuesday. And both C&N Designs and Muneria are getting back to the old days of 25L Tuesday which meant RP stuff!

C&N Medieval Designs, a long time excellent source for RP clothes for both men and women has this amazing smexy “Pirate” outfit for the men that Gabe is lookin’ so  good in today. The out fit comes complete with the top, pants and boots! Plus the vest can be worn with or with the shirt.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – S – L
  • Signature
  • SLink Male

My rakish set is also a 25L Tuesday find. This is the “Cusu” set from Muneria. You get the tunic top with the bracers and belt wrap plus the leather pants. The HUD for both items is huge with plenty of choices. I know my RP character will be wearing this one for our next role play date.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Fitmesh – M
  • Ocacin
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

As always, 25L Tuesday is a fleeting thing so hurry over to get the goodies while they last!

The Dragon’s Brother

The Dragon's Brother

Good afternoon, FabFree Readers. I know it’s rather late in the day to be posting a 25L Tuesday special since Tuesday is on limited time now. However, I had to get the word out. Viki, a smashing designer for both men and women has this full men’s set , “Jadon” for 25L Tuesday.

While I was at Viki’s main shop, I also found an unadvertised sale on a great pair of boots. Just the thing needed to finish up the outfit. The ‘Kane’ boots were only 10L for the pair. I foresee using these quit a lot as they are very well made and stylish.

We men do sometimes get overlooked when it comes to specials and sales. Or it’s another set of sweats or a baseball cap. But this is perfect for those of us who RP or prefer to live in a somewhat different era. As with many of the participants in these day long sales, this deal will be gone after midnight. So hurry along.

Sizes Included for both outfit and boots

  • Belleza Jake
  • Signature
  • SLink Male

Cold Spring

Cold Spring

Good morning, Fab Free Readers. The calendar may tell me it’s Spring but it’s still rather cold here in the real world. 25 degrees this evening and that’s before our chance of snow this coming weekend. While the shops and designers are bringing out the bathing suits and shorts, I still want something warm I’m afraid.

In deference to that, I have found a very nice new coat, scarf and sweater from a new-to-me designer – R3VOLT. The shop doesn’t appear to have an in-world store any longer but their Marketplace store is up and running.  This is the “Sterling” coat but really it’s the entire top in one piece. That’s coat, scarf and sweater.  There is also a HUD to change all three plus the pocket square to any one of fifteen color/pattern choices. All this for a low 10L price makes for an easy bundled up ensemble indeed.

Sizes Included

  • Classic Mesh – XS – XL (Alpha layer included)

Simple Saturday

Simple Saturday

Hey there, FabFree! It is a seriously drab and dreary day here in real life with rain all over my Saturday. Thankfully it’s always easy to find a sunny place on the Grid. So that where I’m hangin’ today. Maybe do some hunting and certainly hitting the sales!

So I found a great new Group gift over at LC Fashion today that really suits my casual comfy mood. The “Fien Long Cardigan” is that gift and it is comfy and stylish too. Fien comes with a separate tank top to wear underneath but you could pair this with a lot of things in your wardrobe. You’ll get a HUD with three colors for the cardigan, fifteen colors for the tank, fifteen colors for the hood and fifteen colors for the fringe as well as an “on-off” switch for the fringe. Pretty and versatile, if ya ask me! The outfit is listed as a “Group Gift” but you can actually just grab it. This might be a glitch which will be fixed but I don’t know. Try it out and if it has decided to ask for a group you can join for just 10L. So still a great bargain!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis
  • Class Mesh – XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Now speaking of weekend sales… My cute bubbles are part of the Saturday sale at Sweet Art and can be yours for just 60L. You get eight different poses in the bundle. Each one has the bubble wand and a bottle to hold. I just love the floating little heart shaped bubbles.  As with all sales, some designers leave the items up longer than just one day but some are strict about the midnight deadline. So hurry over to Sweet Art if you want to get some bubbles to play with.

A Bit of Fun

A Bit of Fun

Happy Friday, FabFree!  I’m feeling a bit nostalgic in today’s outfit, though that could be because everything is making me feel nostalgic these days.  This outfit is exactly what I wish I was wearing in the year 1997 at a mystical location known as Dance Cave in Toronto (if you’ve ever watched Scott Pilgrim vs. The World… yeah… it’s in there somewhere, upstairs at Lee’s Palace! Anyway, Toronto moment).  I’m sure I’m getting my styles a bit mixed up – like, we clearly wouldn’t have had super tight jeans on back then, but… let me live my fantasy.  The leather jacket is life.  Let’s get some FLF’s in!

Fifty Linden Fabulous

I have been super loving all these recent Fifty Linden Friday forays by Truth and Blueberry.  It’s a great way to get your mitts on some big ticket pieces for just a small amount of coin.  Today, you’ll find that Blueberry has this outfit out (including a few other pieces, like matching shoes and tops) for just 50L each piece (the bodysuit, jacket and jeans are all sold separately – but heads up the jacket comes with the loose tank attached – be aware before you buy!).  I just couldn’t pass this outfit up.  Also, TRUTH is making me very happy with a lovely topknot that will set you back just 50L as well in a full fatpack of colours plus a style HUD.  It will be busy, though – so check out the alternate locations to pick up the goods below too.

Shades of Simon

Mooh Feb 2022 GG_001 (1)

It’s a bright, sunny day. Reminds me of the song, Was a Sunny Day by Paul Simon. Its one of those songs that give you happy feet. I won’t tell you how old I really am but let’s just say it was a song of my generation. You can do the math because I hate math – it sux! I digress, I guess. Let’s get on to the goodies!

A Holo Mooh!!

No need to look around for brightly colored bovine. The Mooh! Group Gift (Free GG/$100L join fee) is a really cool strapless dress and long coat comes with a hud full of holographic colors. I would totally rock this in any life!  Not only are the colors bright; the folds in the texture make the outfit look more like a RL outfit. I consider this a huge score for my closet.

I Heart the Hair

I do confess – I am a hair hoarder in SL. I only wish it was this easy to change styles for real! There are a number of wigs/hair styles on sale this weekend or at events. Analog Dog is offering T’aime for Wanderlust Weekend ($50L). T’aime is French for I love you and this hair will show your sentiment. The hud contains both solids and multi-colors.

Dashing to the Diner with Quinnty!

Time for a Milkshake!
Every day, I am eager to read my blogging sister, Aline’s, Fabulous Finds post.  I run around and grab all the things I love, and when I spotted that uber sweet jacket at Quinnty’s that she posted about here, I just had to have it.  I joined the group (50L) and grabbed it, but THEN I looked at ALL the sweet Group gifts for VIPS, and, wow, I was addicted.  There are at least 10 of them but probably more.  It was hard to pick just one to showcase for you, but I picked Mae because it comes with everything for a complete outfit!  You get the cool jacket, the jeans, and these super cute sneakers!!!

The Sneakers!
For your 50L group fee, you  also get a store credit for 50L, so you do get your money back to use on some of the other cute things for sale in the store!!  I love the colors and the creativity of this outfit, but now I am ready for a milkshake!!!!
