Just the Highlights

High Lights

For a limited time, Paisley Daisy has lowered their group join to only 10L so you can pick up their group gifts at a bargain. The August and September group gifts are both out. I’m showing you the pretty dress from August in the picture above and the September group gift is a sheer baby doll dress. The one pictured above is mesh in all the standard sizes and I felt it highlighted the last few days of nice weather… so it’s name was just perfect.

Today is also 25L Tuesday, and I was thrilled to discover beautiful shoes at Luas! These Dorothy shoes come in Slink or Maitreya fits in the box and you can get a choice of 8 colors for only 25L each. I picked up the ivory, but you may want to pick up something different… or one of each!

I finished off my flowery look with a pretty necklace I found from Clever & Cool on the marketplace. This necklace was only 10L. When I first put it on, it had some serious bling, so I was skeptical, but then I discovered that I could turn that off by typing “bling off” into local chat and ta da! No more bling! It also allows for resizing and retexturing of the flowers into many different color choices besides the pink stones shown… so your 10 little Linden gets you a lot of necklace.

Urban Native

Urban Native

I’m enjoying the last few days of not quite cold weather as the fall days allow for walks through parks without jackets. It’s that perfect weather for shorts and a shirt and the breezes are lovely even with the turning leaves.

Even if I’m an urban native… I found the perfect shirt for my outing at… none other than Native Urban. Their group is FREE to join and they have out a FREE group gift for men that you won’t want to pass up. It is this outstanding banshee shirt that includes mesh sizes for all the major men’s mesh bodies including Slink, Adam, TMP, and Aesthetic. Since it is made for mesh bodies, there is no alpha included (just as a heads up) but with some fiddling an an alpha from your inventory you might be able to make this FREE shirt work with your system body if you are still using one.

Speaking Abstractly

Speaking Abstractly

Sapphire Teebrook was away for a while due to real life illness and so the Glitterati August and September group gifts were late in coming. To thank everyone for their patience and the many well wishes she got, there are now five new gifts out at the Glitterati main-store. Three of these gifts are free to all, no group required. Two are group tag required (the August and September group gifts).

The group is 100L to join but there are about 80 past group gifts to pick up, several of which have been blogged before [HERE] and [HERE] for example.

In the picture above, Astrid is wearing two of the free to all gifts — the Julia dress in abstract with the Joyce heels. You don’t need a group to pick these up, just buy them for 0L. The dress comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh for Maitreya and Belleza. I’m not sure how long they will be out, so be sure to hurry over and pick them up.

One Magical, Misty Morning

One Magical, Misty Morning
Hello there, FabFree Readers!  I’m Kathryn Vayandar, one of the two newest bloggers for Fabulously Free, but you can call me Kat.  A long time Second Life resident (8 years…..practically an SL senior citizen, but don’t get the walker ready yet!), I’m a dedicated bargain hunter and I’m excited to share my shopping adventures with you.

Today, my puppy and I took a stroll on a quiet country road in The Forest, an enchanted woodland sim that hosts a shopping event each month.  While Ripley wandered off, happily sniffing out bunny trails, I paused, enjoying the misty morning light, clad in the first Fabulous Find I’d like to share with you.  Knowing the day would quickly warm up, I chose to wear the cute, knotted top from Hottest Fashion’s gift for Third Life members.  The Melanie Set also includes a pair of white, high-waist shorts, but since the morning air was brisk, I donned a pair of sleek, leather pants from Greane Design which I discovered on The Marketplace for only 69 lindens.  My comfy Tawny Sandals from Slipper Originals and The Shadow Lord Choker (a free gift from Ronsem) blogged here by Love Trill, completed my ensemble.  The necklace is an older gift, but it is one of my favorite casual pieces and is still available, so I thought I’d mention it in case you might be interested.

Oh dear, I think I need to rescue the rabbits from Ripley…..until next time, happy shopping!

Last month Prey had out a great pair of jeans for the men… this month they have out a duo of FREE fall mesh sweaters that you won’t want to miss out on. The group is FREE to join, and the gifts are FREE with your tag. You’ll get the sweater above in all the standard mesh sizes in both black and white. A close up look will reveal a nubby texture that is really excellent on.

There is still four more days of the Indian Summer Cart Wash Sale left for you to catch the steals and deals. Astrid showed you a pair of gorgeous ladies sandals from Roped Passion’s [HERE] but the cart also has excellent men’s sandals as well. I picked up the Larue Black Sandals for just 10L. There are several other colors out for the same low price for you gentlemen to choose from. The box includes a pair of sandals to fit men’s slink feet as well as a pair of unrigged mesh sandals that can be adjusted for other feet types.

Smiley faces all around

Smiley faces all around

Hello there to all you Fabulously Free readers! I’m Sheidey (but please just call me Edi) and I enjoy mulling over hunt hints, slapping midnight mania boards and long walks on the beach especially if they lead to a Kraken-themed unlucky dip. Truth be told, I hemmed and hawed a little over what to feature on my first post of this wonderful blog. Wings? No. Dress and boots combination? Maybe for later. Broken unicycle? Wait. How did that get into my inventory?

Mysteries aside, I finally settled on the hunt that’s running concurrently with the Fluffy and Fierce event. If the ‘cute with an edge’ look is right up your alley then hop on down to the event and pick up the hunt hint notecards from some of the participating merchants. The hunt item is hidden in their respective main stores so while you’re hunting you can get distracted by all sorts of lucky letters, group gifts, weasels, etc etc…It’s so much fun!

The outfit pictured is the Bring It On batwing set from Blasphemic that comes in five mesh sweater sizes and system layer ripped leggings with an Omega applier as well as appliers specific to popular mesh bodies. It also includes a studded belt that comes with a resizer hud. I love the laid back look and feel of the outfit and paired it up with a pair of boots that I got off the Midnight Mania board at Psychotic Neko. I do believe that it’s the first set of boots in my Second Life closet to have claws. Definitely made for walking.

Smiley faces all around headshot

To tie the whole look together, I’m wearing the Cella hair from Damselfly that you can get for free at the Crossroads event and the new group gift from WoW Skins called Angy. The simple hairstyle and fresh-faced skin just adds to the casual factor of the whole outfit. It was a lot of fun putting this look together and I hope you had fun reading my first post just as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Give Me a Great Set of Heels

Give Me a Great Set of Heels

Give me a great set of heels and I’ll find the perfect dress to go with it! And I fell in love with this set of strappy stilettos from G&D Italian Style which can be yours totally FREE. You just need a group space, as the group is FREE to join, and once you don the group tag, you can pick up this strappy set of burgundy heels FREE. Once you open your gift, you’ll find a set of heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

I’m still finding 10L deals at the Indian Summer Cart Wash that I just can’t resist… and this beautiful dress by Aleutia is no exception. 10L gets you a two pack… same color but two textures. You’ll get the texture shown, plus an additional dress with the all over print pattern in the box as well. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes, plus a fitmesh size to complete the package. All for just the single 10L price. There are lots of colors on the cart, so stop by even if burgundy isn’t your color… you’re bound to find a color to suit your tastes.

Morning Shopping at the Wash

Good Morning, FabFree!

Take the mic

I don’t know about you but it’s an “I need coffee” sort of morning here. I was up late, maybe too late but a little coffee and a little shopping? Now that’s the way to start the day.  I started out at the fantastic Indian Summer Cart Sale at the Wash and found this wonderful mini dress from Zanze. This is the Becca dress in cream I’m showing off. But it comes in several just-as-tasty colors and all for 10L each. The dress includes the standard Mesh sizes XS-L but it has no alpha layer. I found I actually didn’t need one. The dress fits perfectly! Just don’t forget your undies since you aren’t alphaed!😉

Right next to the Zanze Cart is the always awesome Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes Cart. Lindy has put out a very nice loaded Cart this round with shoes for SLink feet and system feet. I picked the Yeva heels in nude to match up with my new dress.

Last but not least, is a new hair style to top things off. This is the lovely ‘Esra’ from Sentinus and it was one of the current free groups gifts.  As of right now, the Sentinus group is free to join! Plus there is a nice selection of group gifts available, a free SLF&Os gift AND a great Hunt/sale going on! So don’t delay!

Freak Show Fashion

Freak Show Hello Fab Free! It’s great to see you again! Don’t let the creepy monkey or the dramatic lighting fool you, the gifts I have to share with you aren’t creepy at all, rather they are quite fabulous! For this post I have three items to share with you, a group gift dress from Blaraby, a group gift necklace from ECCO, and a pair of group gift shoes from Empire.  This is one of those times when several gifts seem almost meant to go together. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Freak Show Close Ups There are several group gifts to be had a Blaraby, but this “Bambi” dress really caught my eye. I love the style, and the color. This mesh dress comes in standard mesh sizes and fitted sizes for Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Maitreya Lara. To get this lovely belted dress, head over to Blaraby and join the group, then click the gift vendor while wearing your group tag. There is a one time group join fee of 50 lindens to join the Blaraby group. Don’t forget to pick up the other group gifts while you’re there!

ECCO also has several group gifts available to all their group members. The most recent is their August group gift. This pretty little necklace from ECCO has detailed swallows and a single gemstone. The gift includes a color change hud to change the metal color and the gemstone color. To pick up this sweet gift, join the in world group and click the vendor while wearing your tag. You’ll also see a shelf full of previous gifts near by. The ECCO group has a one time join fee of 200 lindens.

Finally, I’m honestly never disappointed in the group gifts from Empire. September’s group gift is this laced up over the knee heel in two special colors. The gift includes a pair of shoes in red, and in purple to fit the bodies and feet for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP.  Also included with this group gift is a color change hud to adjust the color of the sole, and the metal parts of the shoes. There is a one time join fee for the Empire group of 499 lindens. However, the fee pays for it’s self in the form of an always stellar monthly gift.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

One Fine Day

One Fine Day

Have you checked out the Indian Summer Cart Wash Sale yet?! I stopped by this morning and couldn’t help but pick up a couple of beautiful finds for myself.

My first stop was at the Ghee cart, where I picked up my simply beautiful silk Sari dress in Sugar. There are a lot of colors out and at only 10L each, you may just be tempted to pick up each and every color! You’ll get all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. I was in love!

I also stopped by the Roped Passion’s cart, where I picked up my Nani sandals. These beautiful flowered sandals also come in several colors, though I nabbed the pink to match my dress. These too are just 10L each and you’ll get a pair to fit Slink or Maitreya feet in each box. What a deal!
