Speaking of Fae…

Fairy_001

Not long ago, I visited the Redeux event and showed off one of the free gifts I picked up in a post [here]. I’ve been unpacking boxes ever since. There are so many gifts that it seems I’ll be unpacking boxes for months! Luckily I managed to narrow down my findings to a few special ones to share with you. It’s not secret that I love roleplay and fantasy looks, so I was excited to put together a roleplay look for you. I helped it along with a group gift from a special store that you’ll want to pick up.

So versatile…

I stopped by Silvan Moon Designs to pick up the April Gift and discovered that the gift this month is really versatile. This little dress is a casual style that you could wear as a Boho dress if you were out-of-character, or you could doll it up with accessories to make a fae as I have done, or it has just enough of a traveler feel to create a gypsy. There are so many possibilities! The Silvan Moon Designs group has a one-time join fee of 500L, but you will get a quality gift each month to more than make up for the fee. This dress comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Slink Original, and Slink Hourglass bodies.

Speaking of Fae…

So you know I revisited Redeux. I picked up my wings from Poet’s Heart. They are a beautiful pearlized shade of purple, draped in pearls. They include a color change hud for the pearls too! This is a free gift with your Redeux tag, and the Redeux gift is free to join.

What else?

What else did I get? I also nabbed some stone textures. A package of 18 really terrific ones to be exact. To get these, stop by the Timeless textures booth at Redeux and pick up the free gift there. You can see an example of one of the great looking textures behind me in these pictures.

Oh and one more thing…

I LOVE this necklace by Steelhead Outfitters. It fits perfectly and is another free gift from Redeux. This is another one of those gifts that is perfect for roleplay or everyday wear either one. It also includes a color change hud that allows you to change the color of the cord and the circular pendant both separately for lots of versatility! And don’t forget that it’s free!

Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead, has never watched them dancing on a windy day ~ Shira Tamir

Good afternoon Fabulous Readers! Today I am stopping by the blog on this very windy day to show off a lucky board prize that I scored at DM!  Not only is this casual country girl 2 piece set adorable, it comes with a ton of different texture options.

Try Your Luck At DM!

There are a handful of FREE lucky boards at DM that you can try your luck at, and in one of the boards you will find the Gaby Set as shown on my avatar today.  As I mentioned above, the Gaby Set comes with an extensive texture change HUD, and it actually includes 20 denim and print options for the top and skirt.  Available in the mesh body fitted sizes as listed below, I’m sure you’ll find one that will work for you!

Sizes Included:

  • Fitted
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass

Flirty Florals and Spring Ribbons

Sweet Spring

Hey there FabFree! The warm weather I have been having in my part of the real world this weekend, (and when I say warm… I mean +13 Celcius, and after the -30 we have had all winter – this feels like suntanning weather!) inspired me to put on a little spring outfit inworld.  You know me…  I always try to work something free in, and today it’s my shoes and skirt, which I will tell you about below!

Flirty Florals

The Mint Rose Flirty Skirt I am wearing today is available for free in a lucky board at Petite Mort!  You’ll need to be a member of the Petite Mort & Oubliette VIP group, however this group is currently free to join.  There are actually four boards, and you can see two of the other prizes previously blogged on FabFree [HERE].

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus
  • TMP

Spring Ribbons

Previously on FabFree, Aline has told you all about the new group lucky boards at Empire (with a free group join) in her Fly Gal Post [HERE], and while she scored up some sweet bow flats, I won the Lavender ribbon wedges!  You can fully customize these beautiful sandals with a texture change HUD that allows for 20 different colours.  Remember, you’ll need to be in the free to join Empire group to participate in the group lucky boards, not the group with the fee.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya & Venus

A little trick:  If you have trouble finding a group joiner to pick up a group gift or participate in a group offer such as lucky boards or midnight manias, simply go into edit on the offer board or gift and click on the group it is set to to open up the profile.  It works “most times”.

JellyRolling… in gifts.

Snake and Empire

Yay a gift!

As Tavish Zane herself said… “Finally”! Yay a group gift from JellyRoll! I love this store and I’m always excited when this creator puts out a gift or a promo or a new release. And there are some amazing things to be had in this store. I stopped by right away when I saw the notice that you can pick up her “Empire Records” Group gift – pictured above – with your free group join and snapped it up! It’s a gorgeous sweater and skirt set in several mesh body sizes.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Belleza, Freya, Isis

Free Snakes!

Pru checked out the Bodfy Event not long ago and posted some of the wonderful gifts you can pick up in her post [here] and I wanted to go see it for myself. I fell in love with the little free Snake Toe Rings from Candy Crunchers. (I love anything from Candy Crunchers I think.) and they fit my Maitreya feet just perfectly. So I decided to go shoeless for my picture. I included a vendor advertisement of the gift below so you can see a closeup!

Happy gift “shopping”!

Heyyyy guyyyyys….

I’m up in the gym just workin’ on my fitness!  I dunno about you, but in RL I don’t look quite as poised when it’s time to have a little sweat sesh (ew why did I just say sweat sesh?), but I figure in SL you can always look effortlessly adorable and working out in a little skirt would totally work!  Wanna know how I put this look together?  Read on!

Sn@tching it Up

If you haven’t been to Sn@tch recently, you may not know that there are a bunch of new lucky boards just waiting for you to claim some prizes!  It’s completely free, no group join required.  You can grab all sorts of goodies.  I picked up the Connie Sport Skirt (comes in a miriad of colours, of course) as well as The Weekender top.  That’s one of my fave finds, because the texture change HUD has loads of options for this cute little crop top. There’s also a pair of jeans tossed in with the top, which come with system layers and an Omega applier.   I love it!

Sizes

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

Bunny Shoes!

The good people at Reign put out a little Easter gift last week, and I’m sure you’ll agree that these shoes are insanely adorable.  From the little ears all the way to the cute little cotton tail, they’re just pure perfection.  You can change the accent colours on these cute sneaks, as well as whether you’d like the tip-toe version or a flat look – they come sized for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink.  To pick up your pair,  join the Reign group for 250L, and then take a peek in group notices to grab the sneakers to add to your collection.

Now go out there and feel the burn!
