Won’t You Sit With Me For a Bit?

Break Time

Oh, hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m just taking a break from my side gig playing in a band.  I found the perfect shady spot over at Cranium Bay.  How about sitting down and joining me while I tell you about my new outfit?  I picked it up completely for free.

Rock On

The other morning, I was out walking Ripley so a certain someone could sleep in.  Our path just happened to take us by The Free Dove (actually it was a bit out of our way, but hey, we needed the workout).  I decided to wander in and see if there were any new gifts available for the guys, and I was in luck! La Bella Boutique has generously set out the Aber Shirt and Amber Shorts set that I am wearing today absolutely for free for members of The Free Dove group.  One of the best things about this gift is the texture/color change HUDs that you receive for both the top and the bottom, which makes this gift seem like you are getting a week’s worth of clothes all tucked into one neat package.  The shirt HUD offers 13 background color options along with 7 designs to choose from.  Want a plain top?  No problem!  For the shorts, you’ve got 12 varieties at your fingertips.  I really like how the tee clings to your shape and helps show off those abs you’ve worked so hard to achieve.  😉 The pants include an integrated belt that comes in handy along with the option to have normal or loose fit.  If you’d like to scoop up this set for yourself, just head on over to The Free Dove, activate the group tag (there’s no join fee), click the vendor, and boom! you’re in business.  With versions for classic and mesh avatars, there’s something for everybody in the box.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Shirt:  Classic Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL (no alpha layer)
  • Shirt:  Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Signature, Slink, TMP
  • Shorts:  (no classic version) Adam, Aesthetic, Belleza, Gianni, NX-David, Slink, TMP

Well, the rest of the guys are returning from break, so I have to get back to work.  Thanks for hanging out with me awhile.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Are You Getting It? Armageddon It!

Are You Getting It? Armageddon It!

Oh you know, just hanging out…post-apocalyptic style.

I kind of love movies and books and stuff about what goes on after an apocalypse. The Walking Dead is one of my favorite shows (or it was…I still watch it but it is so not as good as it was for the first handful of seasons) and I might have recently started a re-read of Stephen King’s The Stand. I’ve read it a ridiculous amount of times, it’s my favorite. But don’t get me wrong, I have no doubt that I’d be among the first to be eaten by a zombie or die of the plague in an actual apocalypse.

At least I look the part

I was beyond excited when I found this outfit. I can’t believe that it’s free! The detail on it is really fabulous. Of course, you could totally go a different direction with it but this is just where my mind and photography options led me. The boots, tank top, and pants are all included in this free group gift from Vaxer, and all 3 are separate pieces so you can mix and match them with other outfits if you prefer. You just need to join the free group and touch the sign to get yours. You’ll get the top and pants in a wide variety of sizes:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • 5 classic sizes, XS-XL
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TheMeshProject
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Tale As Old As Time

Tale As Old As Time

Okay, what do you think of this one? Better or worse then the last 8 that I tried on? At least in SL we don’t need to worry about going back for a different size, they’re all already included in one handy dandy folder. If only RL shopping were as simple. *Sigh* Now that I think about it, a HUD to change clothing colors in RL and windlight settings to fix that dreadful lighting would be nice too. Is someone keeping a list? We need to make this happen.

Nevermind that I match the dressing room

When it’s such a pretty color, surely matching the walls isn’t really a bad thing. This very ladylike and elegant dress is the newest group gift from Belle Epoque. The group is 10L to join. If matching the walls isn’t your preference, there are a bunch of other springy, happy colors to choose from in the included HUD.

And shoes to match

I love a great pair of heels. These are a Teleport Hub group gift from G&D. It’ll cost you another 10L to join the group and you’ll get the heels sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.

The Porch After Prom

The Porch After Prom

A good movie trope is the “sitting on the porch after prom” scene.  You know, they’ve gone to the prom, shenanigans have been had, and now they’re on the porch having a moment.  I can dig it.  My nouveau-prom look (it’s nouveau because I’m wearing crazy boots) today is courtesy of Syndicate Sunday – a once a month 69 Linden sale wherein you can get some pretty awesome stuff!

Kiss Me

I got my fancy dress today courtesy of Oubliette (one of my fave stores) – it cost me 69 Lindens and came in a fatpack of hues.  I fee like I can dress it up or down depending on my mood – after all, the shoes make the outfit!  And speaking of shoes, these insanely awesome boots are from Sn@tch and also cost me 69 Lindens.  There are several different flowery and animal print styles to choose from on the included HUD, so you can go completely wild with your choices. The boots are sized for Maitreya, Freya, Venus, Isis, Hourglass, Physique and both Tonic bodies.   Syndicate Sunday runs until May 5th, so rush to the stores to take advantage of these deals!

Dress Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Hourglass
  • Pysique
  • Maitreya

Bento Hair!

I found another great deal on Marketplace – this time courtesy of Vallani.  They’ve got this really pretty hair on offer for just 1L!  Best of all, it’s bento hair, which means it gently sways in the wind of your movement.  Awesome.  There are loads of natural shades in the pack to choose from, so you’ll be covered no matter what your preferred look is!  Go get it!

Now you too can go and recreate your “After Prom on the Porch” scene!

Beware: Hungry Designer Zombie

It's Time for Breakfast!

Welcome to breakfast, Err I mean hello Fabulous Readers.  I have resurrected the old classic Stan to bring you another free outfit from the big sale over at Kauna.  As I mentioned in my last post, most of the store is set for sale at zero Linden dollars.  I picked up a spiffy suit there yesterday, and spied a free role play/future Halloween outfit that I just couldn’t resist.

I’m Hungry….. Feed Me

Mr. Attack Dog Scardey Cat began to look nervous as I put on the shredded suit, started trembling when I wore the creepy zombie skin, then took off for the hills with his tail tucked between his legs as soon as I wore the angry face attachment!  I can’t say I blame him, though.  With realistic stains on the ripped fabric, and the pasty, bloodstained complexion, I don’t think I would have hung around long either… Ripley snacks or no Ripley snacks!  The free package includes so many items – it’s an incredible bargain for the grand price of zero lindens!  It is designed for classic avatars, hence the switch to the old Stan, but it was well worth the change in appearance.

What’s Included:

  • gray blazer with a white shirt
  • gray blazer with a blue shirt
  • navy blazer with a white shirt (shown)
  • navy blazer with a blue shirt
  • trousers in both gray and navy
  • handkerchief (not shown)
  • socks
  • zombie brogues (shoes)
  • zombie skin
  • angry face attachment (not worn for picture)
  • resizer
  • alpha layer

If you haven’t checked out the huge sale over at Kauna, I’d highly recommend you head there ASAP.  It won’t last long!  As for me, I’m going to hang out here under this sign for awhile in hopes that someone will bring me food…….after all, it does say “Zombie Feeding Area.”  A guy can dream, right?

I’mma Say All The Words Inside My Head

I'mma Say All The Words Inside My Head

Have you been to the Garage Fair yet? Aline showed off some of the free stuff from this event today too! I heard about it last week and the store list looked promising so I went over to check it out. It’s totally worth a visit! The set up is easy to navigate and there weren’t many people there so lag wasn’t an issue. Those are two of my favorite features in an event. Do you know what else makes it awesome? Free gifts! Most of the shops have a gift out. A lot of them are priced at 0L and 1L, and some are 10L. Today I’m showing you FOUR fabulous things you can pick up for a grand total of ONE L! The Garage Fair goes until June 9th so you’ve got plenty of time to go shop.

Wearing All Of The Gifts At Once

Well maybe not all of the gifts, but a lot of them! I’ll break it down for you, from top to bottom. It’s going to be a lot of words but well, it’s also a lot of free!

  • My hair is by Tameless Despina and comes in a pack of blondes with a color change headband. Super cute! And super free.
  • This top comes with a pair of shorts too (which I’m obviously not wearing) and a HUD that provides lots of color options. Both the shorts and the top came in 5 standard sizes XS-XL as well as Belleza Venus, Maitreya, and Slink Physique. Oh and do I need to say that it was free? Because it was free. You can pick them up from Sweet Temptations.
  • My /AZ/ jeans are the only thing I paid for, and buy “paid for” I mean 1L. But you can never have too many pairs of great skinny jeans, am I right? They come in 5 standard sizes XXS-L and I was able to find a perfect fit.
  • I think my favorite part of the outfit is these super cute free shoes from Ahroun Designs. I love the look of sneakers on the high foot shape and these are just all around super cute kicks!

Phew. Did you get all that? I know I’m still new here but I’m sure you’re used to skimming me by now. hahahaha Here’s the important deets one last time…Garage Fair, free stuff, ends 6/9. Good? Good!

A Sale Suits Me Just Fine

Oxford

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  I’m popping in with a limited time offer that our male readers may want to take advantage of.  Currently, just about everything at Kauna, except gachas, is set to sale for 0L……yes, you read that right – suits, shoes, accessories, just about everything for free!  As soon as I heard about it, I popped on over to the sim and set to work purchasing some terrific additions to my SL wardrobe.

Suit Up!

Every guy needs a “go to” suit and 2BN Casual is going to be mine.  Complete with a jacket, waistcoat, button down shirt, handkerchief, socks, and belted trousers, this outfit is perfect for business casual, as well as a night on the town with your significant other by your side.  With the shirt, you can select from open or closed collar and tucked or untucked.  The best part?  After picking up this complete outfit for free, I have plenty of Linden dollars left for an extravagant evening!  The package contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  Although there wasn’t a fit specifically for the Belleza mesh body, I was able to wear the Slink suit just fine.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in Small and Medium (includes alpha layers for blazer jacket only, shirt, and trousers)
  • Slink (Small and Medium for Slink)
  • TMP

Sneakers Just Won’t Do

With these new fancy duds, my gym shoes simply weren’t going to cut it.  I looked and looked, but I had no formal footwear in my inventory.  Lucky for me, the black Oxfords in my photo were also completely free at Kauna.  With neatly tied laces and just the right amount of shine, these classics provided the ideal finishing touch.  The package included shoes that I think were designed for non mesh avatars, but by adjusting the alpha layer on my Belleza mesh body, they worked out perfectly.

I’m going to head back to Kauna and set what else I can snatch up before this sale comes to a close.  There’s still time left for you to head over to the shop and complete some transactions on your own, but HURRY!  This sale will continue only until the end of May.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

I don’t care how you get here, just get here if you can.

I don't care how you get here, just get here if you can.

Hey there Fabulouses!  Easter may be long over, but the Ricielli Easter Hunt prizes are still out if you missed them!  There are 20 hidden easter egg hunt icons hidden in the store all clearly marked by name (and not very difficult to find!!).

Easter – Extended

Previously on FabFree, I showed you #1 [HERE], but today I am wearing The wrapped Giovana Dress in Naked (#5) and The Josephina Sandals in Beige (#20 – also comes with blue!).

Shoe Compatibility:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

More Info About The Hunt

I have included the prize preview below so that you can see the prizes before you pick up the eggs, and an example of the hunt icon you seek!  I love hunts like this with prize previews, especially if there is a small fee because then you are not wasting your time looking for prizes you aren’t interested in and have only paid for the eggs you want!

Easter Hunt 2018!
