Boho Fedora

Fedora final

Happy Friday Everyone!! I hope you’ve all had a good week and are making fun weekend plans. Speaking of the weekend, this super fun outfit would make great weekend attire for going out with friends. I usually pick out darker colors and patterns, but I just couldn’t help myself with this one! lol

Have you ever had the urge to throw on one of your significant other’s hats? I do all the time! Finally I got brave and have bought one or two of my own. This greenish-gold fedora reminded me of that. Fedoras are my favorite style of hat to wear, and sometimes having one a little over-sized is fun. This unisex hat is a current FREE gift at Fab Free Headquarters from Couture Chapeau, and it has a re-size script to fit just about any size. There’s no need to join a group, (though we’d love it if you did!) just head on over to FFHQ and pick it up.

Also at FFHQ is this pretty skin from Hankii Pankii. The bright fun make up is part of the skin, and this FREE gift includes several appliers including Slink and Maitreya, as well as a few more. Considering the colorful nature of the outfit, I knew this skin would be a perfect fit!

I’m not sure which part of this FREE group gift from ALB Dream Fashion I like best, the top or the shoes?! If forced to decide, I’d probably pick the shoes, but it would be difficult. I love the bright colorful patchwork pattern, it’s fun and summery. The top also allowed me to show off some skin, which for me really means showing off the tattoos I like so much! Not wanting to show quite so much skin? I think this loose-fitting crop top would look great with a solid colored tank under it as well.

Next, I adore this bumble bee manicure from Nail Me!. Talk about a fun manicure that is perfect for summer! This set comes with toenail appliers too, so  your tootsies can be as cute as your fingertips. In addition there are appliers for Slink nails, and an Omega applier. This set is the Nail Me! contribution to the Birds and Bees Hunt. The BBH is a 1 linden hunt.

The cell phone I used with the pose from Velvet Poses is now a Marketplace dollarbie from No Cabide. Not only is this cell super cute, it comes with a texture change hud so you can match your phone to more of your stuff! Skyler showed this cute phone originally in one of her posts here. She also included a close-up of the texture change hud!

Like the “Selfie” pose from Velvet Poses? You can get a pack of 5 selfie poses (phone  not included) for just 50 linens at the ToBeOutsider event. That’s just 10 lindens per pose!

Whew! That was a lot of stuff! Here are the details, Enjoy!

Your Friday Hunt Report

HUNT SL The Birds & The Bees Hunt SignIf you’re a hunter like me, you’re happy that there are always so many hunts going on at any given time. Heck, if it weren’t for hunting, my wardrobe wouldn’t be continually stuffed with new clothes. I very nearly never have to wear the same thing twice, though I do have my favorites… and for the most part, they all came from hunts!

If you’re not a hunter, you need to get in the game! Hunts are a great way to get all kinds of free (or very nearly free) stuff for your inventory. It’s not so difficult and there’s help to get started. FabFree and HUNT SL both have pages with useful tips and tricks.

So check out all the May hunts going on right now. Click the names for more information on each hunt.

You’re Worth It

You're Worth It

Hello Fab Free! I’ve recovered from my long weekend and I’m glad to be back. I have a few great group gifts to share with you to get the week started. The first item is the May group gift at Entice, followed by the May group gift at Mes Petites Coutures. I hope you like them.

This on-piece outfit with the gold flourish accent is fully mesh and completely FREE at Entice. I love it when cute outfits come in a single mesh. Sometimes I’m in a rush and outfits like this “You’re Worth It” number from Entice make dressing easy. All you need is an Entce group tag and the outfit is yours. The Entice group is FREE to join.

Next, I picked up this super cute freckled skin at Mes Petites Coutures. The Mes Petites Coutures group is also FREE to join, so this pretty skin is a truly FREE gift. This group gift also includes a matching loud mouth applier. I like the uniqueness of the freckled face on this skin, and the “cookie” tone is a nice warm tan. I liked it so much that I even purchased the Maitreya appliers also available at Mes Petites Coutures.

Lastly, I picked up this pretty little hair piece for just $75 lindens on the Marketplace. I think this accessory from Ity is both pretty and fun. It’s a great alternative to wearing more traditional jewelry when you’re trying to dress up an outfit.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL Wayward-Hunt-Poster-4-15-to-5-1_1024Good morning fabulous friends! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, April 28.

The Wayward Hunt has been sitting at the top of the list for several days now. I suggest going to the hunt’s own web page and checking out the free bicycle.

Then check out The Vintage Hunt. It’s a pretty good size hunt with 46 stores, and it just started last week so you have lots of time to get through them all.

There are plenty more to choose from. I’m sure you can find one to love.

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt and this ranking can (and probably will) change in a few hours.

See you out on the hunt!

The Evil Queen & The Good Queen

The Evil Queen

Throughout fantasy, fairy tales, and folklore the struggle between good and evil has always been at the heart of many tales. Two of the Recolors of Spring Hunt gifts at Apple May Designs hint at such stories, the Evil Queen dress, and the Good Queen dress. Inspired by the dresses at AMD and my own love of fantasy, I am excited to share with you an Evil Queen, and a Good Queen. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Evil Queen’s dress is one of 4 female 1 linden Recolors of Spring Hunt prizes hidden around the Apple May Designs main location. I love that the dress has a fitted bodice and a short full skirt. In my opinion this silhouette is perfect for a fantasy look. The red and black fabric has a satin-like look to it, and I had no problem wearing this fully mesh dress with my Maitreya Lara body. The Evil Queen dress comes in standard sizes and includes a matching alpha layer.

Today only, Glam Affair has out a pack of three gorgeous skins for 50 lindens as their Fifty Linden Friday item. One of these skins I thought was perfect for my vision of the Evil Queen. The Sia skin in the India tone with her dark red lips is just stunning on and has the right combination of beauty and drama. Not as into this skin as I am? There’s bound to be one you will enjoy between the three tones (India, America, and Artic). Not to mention that at just 50 lindens for all 3, you kinda can’t go wrong!

Here are the Evil Queen’s Details, Enjoy!

The Good Queen

While I’m generally more inclined toward the darker fantasy characters, I have to admit I love this interpretation of the Good Queen. I envisioned something a little ethereal and I think I achieved such a look. I hope you love it!

Just like the Evil Queen, the Good Queen’s dress is a 1 linden RSH prize at Apple May Designs. This version is a beautiful white material with the same satin-like look and faint pattern of the black and red Evil Queen version. These dresses really are lovely on. For some diversity (and because I had the right skin appliers) I wore my Slink Physique body with the dress, and again had no issue. This dress also comes in standard sizes and can be worn using the provided alpha layer.

Additionally, I picked up some gorgeous past group gifts at NSP Florals. There are many gifts still available at NSP Florals, one of which is this enchanting Lady Gwynevere headdress in Sublime Mint. The headdress is a past FREE group gift that can still be found in the NSP Florals/MUSE VIP Room. The NSP Florals group is just 75 lindens to join, and you gain instant access to all the available gifts. Another beautiful FREE gift at NSP Florals are these lovely heels. Called the Peony Stilettos, these fantastic shoes are meant to be worn with Slink High feet. Also, they can be worn with or without the flower and crystal embellishment. Again, you’re able to get the shoes and the headdress at NSP Florals with just one group join fee of 75 lindens, not to mention the slew of other equally awesome gifts!

Here are the details for the Good Queen, Enjoy!

The Mermaid

The Mermaid

Hi there Fab Free! I had so much fun styling this look that I’m just going to get right to it and tell you all about it. This “Ocean” toned skin from PixyStix is truly gorgeous on, I love looking at it. It also kind of reminds me of blue raspberry kool-aid, which is awesome! This fantasy skin is the FREE Hunt for Your Inner Slut prize at PixyStix. As always, Pixy was very generous with this gift, included with this skin are appliers for just about everything out there. Seriously, tons of appliers.

I’ve always liked the idea of mixing genres and styles to create a more unique look. I love mixing vintage and modern styles for example. This time I went with the fantasy look of the skin from PixyStix and added some modern clothing from Apple May Designs, and the jewelry is somewhere in between. AMD is participating in the Recolors of Spring Hunt. The hunt is a dollarbie hunt and there are several items in the AMD store. This silver metallic bandeau style top and matching skirt set is just one of the four total gifts for women. There are also two hunt prizes for the men. For just one linden this outfit is a steal! You can also find this dress in gold, and I am happy to tell you that this RSH prize includes several appliers, or it can be worn on regular system layers. Happy Hunting!

Lastly, what modern mermaid would be complete without a kick-butt mani/pedi? Today is the last day of the current round of The Dressing Room Fusion. ZOZ has a set pretty shiny nails meant for Slink hands/feet in 3 colors for just 70 lindens per color. These are specifically meant to show off the cool feature of the most recent slink update, you can put a different nail pattern on each individual nail. Can’t make it out to TDRF in time? Not to worry, the sets will be available at the ZOZ main store at full price after TDRF ends.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

She’s Gone Wayward

Wayward Hunt

Hi Fab Free! As you can see we are having a great time with the recently started Wayward Hunt! Not only is this hunt FREE but there are tons of amazing designers participating. Thus far I’ve been very impressed with the hunt items, so of course I had to get in on the fun of showing them off!

I love this hairstyle with the fun rainbow ends and cute top bun is the FREE Wayward Hunt prize from Blues. The hairstyle is named Beau and comes in a blond version and the brunette version shown. The rainbow colored ends are beautifully done, and they give this pretty, casual style an edgy playfulness.

This pale freckled skin with red eye-makeup and red lips is the FREE Wayward Hunt gift from The Skinnery. This gift includes the skin in a dark brows option (shown) and a no brows option. Also included with this gift are appliers for the TMP body. (I used the Maitreya HUD to manually adjust my skin-tone to match the Skinnery tone)

The moment I saw this skirt on Flickr, I knew I had to have it! The skirt is the FREE Wayward Hunt gift from Yumyums. It’s a fully mesh skirt and was intended to be worn with the Maitreya body. I think this vibrant floral print is perfect for the season, and the pleats are super cute.

Next, the shoes! I am a sucker for a cute pair of wedge heels. These open-toe wedges are the FREE Wayward hunt prize at Livalle (formerly L. Warwick). The shoes include version to fit Slink High, Belleza, and Maitreya feet.

Finally, the hanging rug with the string of lights in the background is the FREE hunt prize from Toro. The textures area really beautiful, I love the bohemian element to the style. Also, the lights can be turned off and on with just a click. I think this pretty piece would look great indoors or on a covered patio, and it’s great for photos!
