The First Creepings

The First Creepings

Well well well, if it isn’t the chill wind of early evening that is beginning to steal about my ankles.  I can feel the first stirrings and creepings of Autumn, the slight orange tinge is making its way into the leaves,  and the sun has that golden quality that speaks of Fall.   I guess I’m ready now to acknowledge that the seasons are changing, and with it comes a bit of a turn towards the darker side of wardrobe choices…

Lucky Number 13

For Friday the 13th, Nar Mattaru came out with a new group gift for their members:  this creepy cute tank that I am enjoying quite a bit.  I joined their group for 149 Lindens, and then clicked on the vendor, and it was mine.  There are a bunch of other gifts too while you’re at it, so quite worth the join fee.  Love it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Who you calling Psycho?

Psycho Barbie also have a new group gift out, and I’m loving every minute of it.  These tights are just what the doctor ordered to take your shorts from summer towards fall in just a few easy clicks.  Join the group for 50L and they’ll be yours!  They come with Omega appliers and system layers in a whole host of fun colours.  Don’t forget to pick up the other (considerable amount) of gifts while you’re there.

Mmm, pumpkin spice creepiness.

I’m so Fancy

I'm so Fancy

It’s Sunday Funday and for some reason I’m spending it in a pink classroom.  It’s not quite back to school time yet here in my part of the world, but you to always get that little hint of excitement before it’s time for people to head back to the books.  Maybe it’s the thrill of the new school supplies you can pick up.  I always was partial to a new set of pencils… or a new back to school outfit!  I think I may have settled on a cute and somewhat Clueless-inspired look!

She’s Psycho

Psycho Barbie have all sorts of new fun goodies for group members!  If you join their group for 50L, you can get your little mitts on these sweet socks and garters as their most recent group gift (there are a whole bunch of other gifts there too!).  I also got my cute knotted dress there (it comes with several different texture options, all featuring slightly creepy cute designs) by hanging out by the Lucky Boards and waiting until my letter came up!  I didn’t have to stand around too long til I grabbed this dress, but there are a bunch of other fun outfits too!

Sizes

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

You think I’d spend a fortune on an outfit?  AS IF!  (Clueless reference…just sayin…)

Fab Free Designer of the Week – KaraBaby


Hello hello Fab Free, and welcome back to the blog. I hope everyone has had an enjoyable week so far. Mine has been good, and creating content for this blog always makes it brighter. For today, it’s time for a designer of the week post with the spotlight on KaraBaby. A shop focused post has been long over due. If you’ve ever visited KaraBaby you know this clothing boutique specializes in mesh and applier clothing for female avatars.

Most of what you’ll find at KaraBaby is casual style dresses, and outfits. There is however a wide range of fashion. You can find everything from lingerie and evening dresses to shoes and swimwear. While browsing the “racks” I saw lots of bright colors and dainty prints. There are also some great opportunities at KaraBaby to pick up some fashion for little to no lindens.

Once inside the KaraBaby shop you’ll find the 35 Linden Sunday Sales items are still available to the right side next to the event items. To the left just as you enter you’ll see the free KaraBaby group gift, and the free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members. First, the free KaraBaby group gift is the pretty floral print dress shown. At this time the KaraBaby group is free to join. Next, the pretty shoes with vintage flair are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift. The Fab Free group is always free to join. Additionally, there is a discount area upstairs where you can find great bargains on older items. Happy Shopping!

Roller Girl


Roller Girl

Come skate with me Fab Free! It’s always sunny in Second Life, so why not take advantage of the never-ending sunshine and cruise around the boardwalk while listening to some tunes. This cute roller girl look is made up almost entirely of free or inexpensive items, including the free-for-everyone bikini gift at Glitzz.

The month of June may be close to an end, but Pride is always. Needless to say I was excited to find this cute rainbow bikini for free at Glitzz, no group needed. It comes in a handful of sizes and includes a hud to change the metal bits that are part of the ties. To get your copy of this free gift, head over to Glitzz and find the gift vendor near the back of the store.

The blue striped knee socks are a dollarbie Marketplace find by a store called *1* Tsutsujiya Overknee World. They come in a classic system layer, an Omega applier, and a Maitreya applier.

Finally, these cute skates are another Marketplace find. I’d tell you the store name, but there doesn’t appear to be one. One quick side note, I think it’s worth mentioning that the creator’s profile is now completely blank. That said, these skates are just 49 linden on the Marketplace. Also, there are a few other versions for the same price. These skates come with resize scripts and have a skate AO that takes over when you walk or run. I did have to turn my regular AO off to have the skate animation work properly.

I hope you have as much fun with this Roller Girl look as I did!

Here are the details:

Head – Catwa – Koura
Headphones – Petite Mort RSD Pink Headphones 50L/Play *Originally Shown Here

Slow Start

Slow Start

Oh, man. I wish I could have had a nice slow start to the day in RL too. I guess I’ll have to live out my lazy fantasy in Second Life. At least I found the perfect comfy yet sorta sexy lounge wear to do it in!

Sheer Comfort

I popped over to the Designers Circle yesterday when I heard they have some awesome gifts set out for us. My first find was the ‘Akasha’ set from Enigma Apparel. This two piece set has the silky pink shorts and the sheer white top. Yes… it’s sheer so you better be feeling pretty sassy when you put it on. Of course, for the blog, I had to arrange some hair to stay modest.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • SLink

Cutie Cats

The find that made me lol in rl, were these super cute kitty slippers. These are the KitKat Slippers from Prism. I am so in love with them! They come with a HUD to pick one of four colors and easily adjust to fit just about any flat feet.

The Designers Circle runs until March 16th so don’t wait around too long!

Linda, honey… just listen to me

FabFree: Linda, honey... just listen to me
Hey there Fabulouses!  I may have bookmarks in three books right now and I have stacks and stacks of to-reads, but I am always jotting down little lists of books I need to pick up.  One book reading essential is a pair of comfy socks, and Friday has just put a lovely group gift pair out in the group notices of the White River Farms group that I am here to tell you about today as well as a fabulous gacha item by C’est La Vie and a 50L hairstyle by Elikatira.
White River Farms VIP Group Gift - February 2019!

Really honey – listen to me, even if your name isn’t Linda…

I have mentioned before that you should totally be a part of the White River Farms group (HERE) and I really hope that everyone signed up when it was free, but now that it’s 100L it’s still worth every little penny with monthly group gifts from Elikatira, Friday and White River Co. in a rotation!  Recently Friday sent out the Honey Socks to the White River Farms group (you’ll find it in the past notices!) and they are just adorable with the faces on the knees and the sweet pastel pink top.  AGAIN…  this is not in the store… you’ll find it in the past notices of the White River Farms inworld group – secondlife:///app/group/600afe02-78d6-180e-f6aa-afc3d9b4e07d/about

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Flat, High & Boot
  • Slink Hourglass Flat, High & Boot

Other Affordable Finds!

To complete my comfy book reading ensemble, I have also added the C’est la vie Maitreya-fitted Iro Sweater that is just 67L per play at the C’est La Vie store in a gacha machine.  This machine is great… because with every play, you’ll get one of these comfy oversized sweaters.  No little trinkets or chokers lol.. the machine is just full of different colours of this sweater and the rares are floral ;).

My relaxed braid is Elikatira’s Maeve which is just 50L per colour pack as a limited time offer.  I believe this is for the Saturday sale, but it is on sale today still at the landing point if you hurry!

ps.  If you aren’t sure what I am talking about or why I am calling you all Linda, here’s the youtube video!  It’s an oldie, but a goodie.

Shall We Dance, M’Lady?

A Night at the Ball

Hello there, Fabulouses! It’s not often that I opt to role play in SL, but Ripley happened to catch wind of fantastic his/her free matchy-matchy 18th century outfits that Stan and I just had to check out. If you are a role player in SL, these might be just up your alley! Each gift package includes everything you need from head to toe – all for free with no group join required!

For the Lady…

From wig and hat down to slippered feet, the ladies’ gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit is a complete 18th century outfit perfect for a formal ball. I chose to wear just the gown, gloves, skirt, sleeves, bow and Sacque (kind of like a cape in back), but the gift folder also includes a color change wig, wrap, cap, stockings and slippers. I just love the frilly trim and lace as well as the generous hoop style skirt. I felt so elegant while wearing it! The best part of all was it was completely free and I didn’t have to join any group to pick it up!
Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic clothing layers (gloves, shoe base, stockings, top, underpants, underskirt, alpha layer)
  • Applier for Belleza, Maitreya and Slink
  • Omega Advanced Applier HUD
  • Sacque
  • Skirt
  • Right and left sleeves
  • Wig with color change HUD and hairbase
  • Cap
  • Slippers

And For the Gentlemen…

Although he grumbled about wearing a wig, I thought Stan looked dashing in his suit, which is a free gift from St. Petersburg in SL/Chateau D’Esprit. The men’s gift doesn’t have as many separate components like the ladies’ version, but it looks just as spectacular, and includes everything needed for a fantasy evening. From the powdered wig down to the buckled shoes, Stan was all set to go. He really appreciated the fact that he could throw all the clothing on with just one click. There was no need to mess around with adding different layers or separate clothing items. He simply had to decide to go with either the standard or no lace version of the suit and then add his wig. No fuss, no muss and then he was pacing, waiting for me to finish getting ready. Isn’t that the way it always goes? 😉

What’s Included:

  • M Suit
  • M Suit (no lace)
  • Alpha layer
  • Wig

We’re off to enjoy an evening of waltzing and role play. Until next time, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley and Stan)

Hibernation

Hibernation

I am back to my cocoon of coziness here in SL!  January kinda brings out the need to hibernate in me.  I feel like I’m becoming a bear, but with less fur and slightly less bulky.   You know what, though… a bear would never fit into this adorable outfit!

Being Vain

I actually escaped my cocoon of comfort to head over to Vanity.  I’m pretty pleased that I did, because there’s a super cute new group gift by Scandalize for members of the Vanity group.  The tank top, shorts and long socks I’m wearing are so adorable I couldn’t pass them up.  They come with an extensive HUD to change the colour of all the details (like the laces, and pearls), as well as a version without the eyes on it.  So cute!  I got mine by joining the Vanity group for FREE and clicking on the vendor near the landing point.

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Stay cozy!

Christmas Clean Up

FabFree: Christmas Clean Up

Christmas Clean Up

Good morning Fabulous Readers!  I guess there’s not much left to do now but clean up all this Christmas!  Wearing a couple free and affordable items that I picked up around the grid, I sit in a 1L pose to get down to the task of taking all these ornaments back off the tree.

The Cozy Sweater

The Candy Sweater by MOoH! is available for 10L at The Naughty List which ends in just a couple of days.  It includes a texture change HUD for a few solid / deer prints and comes in tons of mesh body fits. Note that this item was a previous group gift at MOoH! with a join fee of 100L [blogged here], however if you didn’t grab it then due to the fee, you can pick it up now for the low price of 10L.

Sizes Included:

  • Fitmesh XXS-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • Ebody
  • Ocacin

Thigh High Socks

This month at MOoH! with your group tag activation you can grab the Maya Thigh High Socks that come with a texture change HUD.  Again, this offer will disappear in a couple of days at the end of the month when a new offer is put up!

Sizes Included:

  • Fitmesh S-L + Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya & Venus
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy

  1. A generous group gift
  2. An entry into the group raffle
  3. An instore group credit for 150L to spend on almost anything by MOoH!
