Rocking the Unboxing

Rocking the Unboxing

I was hanging around in my photo studio after one of my shopping jaunts.  I generally hate unpacking things after these (frequent) sprees.  Do you have that issue too?  I unpack and then try on my new stuff right away to get over the trauma of all the unboxing my poor little fingers have to go through 😉  The fact that my finds are often free helps me through this tedious task too!

Dark Beauty

My look today is inspired by the fun finds I uncovered at Beauty of Darkness.  This store specializes in the darker side of fashion (hence the name of the store – duh Aline) and they have a generous number of free gifts out as well as a few lucky chairs.  I picked up the Mad Cat socks and the Beauty in Darkness top for free by joining the free group!  They’ve got all sorts of stuff you can mix and match for a bit of a goth look.  Also, yay cats!  The top and tights are appliers and come with Classic System Layers, a TMP applier, and an all-in-one HUD that has options for most mesh bodies.

Another Day, Another Scandal

I was revisiting a few hidden gems in SL, and headed back to Julia’s Scandal.  They’ve got all sorts of new free gifts out including this super adorable and frilly skirt (it comes with a matching bra).  The Venus skirt has several HUD options, including a few lacy looks, and different colours.  Love it!  The Julia’s Scandal group is currently free to join!

Sizes

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Standard Fitted Mesh

/me surreptitiously hides the other boxes to be unpacked under the couch.

I’m just going to keep this outfit on for a bit longer!

Not Ready To Let Go Of My Holiday Knits

JustBecauseNCore
Christmas may be over for the year, but I am not ready to put away all of my holiday knits yet, especially those that were gifts for Christmas!  In real life, I’m still wearing my Christmas gifts… especially my new fuzzy Christmas bear pom pom socks that were in my stocking and in Second Life I am wearing some snazzy knit gifts too!

Snazzy Christmas Knit gift by Just Because

Just Because put out a lovely and free group gift for their inworld members (free to join!!).  The Vora Christmas Sweater with the adorable reindeer print is available in the sizes listed below on the wall behind the reception desk  to the right along with several other beautiful previous group gifts.  Most of those gifts have been shown on FabFree – HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE!  This cute cropped sweater also comes with a HUD that allows you to select which colour metal buttons you’d like.

Sizes Included:

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

Snazzy Christmas Knit gift by N-Core

With  current group join fee of 299L, N-Core has THREE amazing new group gifts up for the holidays!  One of which is the Jane Christmas socks and buckled platform heels set that you can wear together or as separates. Included are a few texture change options as shown below in their vendor ad.  If these aren’t reason enough for you to join, and I am not sure why they wouldn’t be – because they are so cute…  just wait till you see the other two gifts which I will be wearing in future posts soon.

To All a Good Night

To All A Good Night
Happy Holidays Fab Free! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season full of happiness and joy. For today’s post I did a little “shopping” for myself. Actually, I did some gacha-ing. I sat at my home and Pocket Gacha’d until my little heart was content. I have to admit, it was content rather sooner than I would have liked. My linden wallet is quite thin! lol Still, I had lots of fun using the FREE Pocket Gacha HUD without having to go anywhere. I had such fun in fact that I wanted to share my experience with you, and show off the equally fun items I gatcha’d.

e.Marie

I adore over-the-knee socks. These pretty striped socks are from the e.Marie items within the Pocket Gacha this round. There are tons of fun socks, some holiday themed, some not. I lucked out and got one of the Rare sets. This set included a color change hud with several preset options, and optional twinkle lights. The lights have their own hud as well. Also, this is important, you’ll want to make sure that you’re looking at the e.Marie gacha key for your body. Pru wears Maitreya Lara, so I had to be sure to play the “Lara” key for the e.Marie gachas. If that sounds confusing, I promise it is easy, you’ll see what I mean when you scroll through the gacha keys on the hud. These cute socks by e.Marie are just 50 linden per play.

Sizes Available: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza (Freya, Isis)

Cubic Cherry

It just so happens that the Cubic Cherry sweaters have the possibility of matching quite nicely with the e.Marie socks. These cute fluffy sweaters are just 75 linden per pay. There are tons of commons and a few cute Rares to be had. These are sized for Maitreya Lara wearers only.  Again I felt lucky when I pulled this cute unicorn common from the Cubic Cherry gacha key inside the Pocket Gacha hud. I love unicorns, and this sweater says “99% Unicorn” across the front.

Size Available: Maitreya Lara Only

99 Percent Unicorn
LOTUS

These deep brown eyes are from the Pocket Gacha by LOTUS. Every once in a while I like to change things up and wear eyes that are different from the ones I usually wear. I love the details in these dark eyes by LOTUS. They are also very similar to the color of my own eye in RL. The mesh eyes come with resize scripts, and there is a Catwa applier for the Catwa mesh eyes. The LOTUS Pocket Gacha is just 60 linden per play and there are 15 pretty earth toned commons, and 2 hauntingly pretty Rares.

Essences

I love it when Essences participates in events and things like Pocket Gacha. For this round of Pocket Gacha, Essences has a full set of  Catwa head appliers. There are 10 commons, in the Pale02, Dark01, and Dark02 tones, along with 2 Rares, one Medium02, and the other Pale01. Body Appliers are not included, but can be purchased at the Essences main store. This set of pretty faces is called Lydia, and she’s just 58 linden per play.

P.S. You can also pick up a Pocket Gacha hud at most (if not all) participating stores.

Here are the details, Merry Christmas, and Happy Gacha-ing!!

Waiting for Christmas…

Lost my Boots!

I lost my boots in a snow drift! Thankfully I have on my warm winter socks from Graffitiwear. Whew! These woolen beauties saved the day and are cozy too. And they come in sizes to fit…

  • TMP
  • Tonic
  • Ocacin
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass & Physique
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus

They are a Christmas gift currently at the main-store. You’ll need your Graffitiwear group tag, but the group is only a mere 5L to join, and there are 3 other group gifts currently out to pick up, including a sweater and some stockings.

A Christmas Sweater

To top off my look, I hunted down the free Women Only Hunt prize from Pink Cream Pie. I was rewarded with this gorgeous sweater called the “Ugly Annie” sweater. How could they possibly call it ugly?! It’s amazing! It comes in sizes to fit Maitreya, Hourglass, Freya, and Isis.

Keep warm and cozy everyone!

Ready for a Christmas Party

Well Hello There Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I could use a fun swanky Christmas party. I’ve even found a cute holiday outfit to wear. Now all I need is some spiked egg nog and a house full of friends! In this post I’ll tell you how to get this complete outfit for FREE, right down to the sparkling shoes!

The festive earrings and gem encrusted holiday heels are part of the FREE gift under the Christmas tree at ChicChica. In the gift you’ll get the shoes in 2 sizes, and 2 pairs of earrings.

Duvet Day

Duvet Day

OH!  Um…Hi Fab Free… You caught me in my pyjamas!  I’ve been having a bit of a sleep-in today, and I was just admiring my handiwork.  The house is ready to go for Christmas, and I think I deserve a little break.  And also an enormous Hot Chocolate.  You do too, so let’s get to the details!

Cozy and Cute

In my wanderings around the grid hunting high and low for freebies, I had stopped in at Nerido.  Love posted an outfit that they have out for the Women Only Hunt (You can read about it HERE), and as I was trying to get my greedy little paws on the same outfit, I came upon their free offering for the Holiday Hunt.  The little Santa-esque box held a lovely seasonal outfit, which I have to decided to cozy up in.  The Linda set is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.  The top and bottom can be worn separately and can be mixed into several styles of outfit to wear during the day too!

Sweet Slippers

I mentioned yesterday in my POST that Reign is counting down to Christmas with their 12 Days of Reignmas gifts!  The Reign group is currently 1000L to join, but I’ve already received a fatpack of heels, and the gifts I’m wearing today.  On day two,  I got these ADORABLE socks and slippers.  CUTENESS OVERLOAD.  You can change the colour of the socks, as well as switch your reindeer between Blitzen and Rudolph.   I also got the delectable hot chocolate I’m sipping daintily (aka slurping noisily).  The Marshmallow hot chocolate comes in a dizzying array of mugs, including “Naughty”, “Nice”, “Grinch, Please!” and many, many more.  The “Reigndeer” slippers and socks come in several sizes, including:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Well, friends.  I am going to go dive back under the duvet, because… well, I deserve a duvet day now and then!

Bright Northern Light

Winter's Light

Hello there Fabulouses!  As Ripley and I explored the La Vie sim, we met two sweet new Saint Bernard friends.  As you can see, Gus carries a rescue kit around his neck, so he and Gloria are prepared at any moment to join an SL Search and Rescue team when their services are required.  On this bright and sunny Sunday, it didn’t look like that would be necessary, so they posed with me for a photo op.  Aren’t they just adorable?

Ready to Be Santa’s Helper

My entire outfit today, from my antlers to the tip of my toes is composed of free gifts from *Coco* Designs.  As soon as I saw the Reindeer Headdress, I couldn’t wait to try it on.  What a fun way to get into the holiday spirit!  My over-sized knit sweater features a cozy turtle neck and long, generous sleeves.  I liked how it tucked into the front waistband of my cheery leggings.  With a red and white Nordic-style pattern, these pants coordinated beautifully with my crimson top and slouchy socks.  Through Linden magic, I was able to traipse around all day in just my stockings, and my feet never felt a smidgen of melted snow … pretty amazing, am I right? 😉  To scoop up this look for yourself, simply head on over to the shop, activate the *Coco* Update Group tag (it’s completely free to join) and tap the vendors.  Easy peasy!

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Slink
  • Maitreya

As soon as I pop our wish lists in the mailbox for Old Saint Nick, the pupster and I will bid farewell to our new pals, and continue exploring this lovely sim.  Until next time, happy shopping!

Elf on the Shelf

Elf on the Shelf

I’ve found my fair share of holiday-themed garb this season, but quite frankly nothing is is as striking as the combination of icy blue and red.  The good people down at Sn@tch seemed to be onto this as well, and put together this different and rather attractive take on the Christmas theme.

Ice Fishing

This fantastic outfit actually comes with 23 pieces.  Skirts, tops, shoes, stockings, a gorgeous corset, makeup, hair and even some elf ears.  You can totally make this outfit your own by mixing and matching til the reindeer come home!  I’ve said it before, but I really love a complete outfit!

All you need for this fabulous outfit, is a 7 Seas fishing rod (which you can buy right near the pond outside Sn@tch) that will cost you 100L, no bait required.  Pay once, and play for fishing outfits in the future!

Oh what fun!
