Holo Heaven

Holo Heaven

I have always adored anything that is vaguely holographic.  It could be the fact that I grew up in the early 80’s, or perhaps it was the influence of Jem and the Holograms…or it could be that it’s just super pretty.  Whatever the reason, I have an amazing dress that ticks all the boxes of awesomeness!

I’m Pro Magic

I made a beeline for the Promagic mainstore the other day, because I had a notification that there were a new pair of sweet free heels in the subscriber unit.  To pick up mine, I had to unsubscribe and then resubscribe then they were delivered directly to me in this pretty pink shade.  So lovely, and sized for Maitreya.  While I was there, I unsuspectingly came across a gift from the SL Frees & Offers group, which was this really pretty holographic bias cut dress.  I’m pretty much in love with it, and super happy that it was FREE!  Join the SLF&O group for free to get your very own.

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis

Mmm, holographic!

Sashay Away

Sashay Away

Well hello there!  RL has been keeping me on my toes the past few days, so I’ve sadly had to be a bit quiet on the bloggage front!  Well, I’ll try to make it up to you with this gorgeous outfit I put together completely for free!  I’m liking the dark sultry nature of it all, but let’s get to the details without further delay!

Dress Me Up

While I was at Sn@tch the other day doing some fishing, I took a gander around the store and noted that the Twisted Hunt is currently going down!  Sn@tch is always super generous with their gifts and prizes, and the Twisted Hunt is no exception.  There is not just one free prize, but a whole bunch all peppered around the place hidden inside the symbol of a flame.  I came across the Bernadette gown, which is lovely, deep cut, laced up and very red.  Isn’t it sexy?  I love it!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

Give Me Some Lip

Sintiklia have a lovely new free gift out for all, no group join required.  It’s this really beautiful and shiny lipstick applier for Lelutka heads.  It comes in six amazing different colours that I’m sure you’ll be as obsessed with as I am. You’ll find your copy in the makeup area of the store near the counter.  Simply stunning!

Branching Out

My really striking ear cuffs are courtesy of Since 1975 who sent out a new subscriber gift.  If you aren’t subscribed, head on over to the store and hit the subscriber unit.  Check in the history section to pick up your free gift (same goes if you haven’t received yours automatically!) How cool are these!  I may just wear them forever.  Maybe.  You can’t tell me what to do! Hehe.

I’m going to sashay away now…

Here are the details, enjoy!

I Come From the Water

I Come From the Water
Hello Fab Free’rs, Happy Sunday-fun-day! I hope everyone has been having a good weekend. Mine has been great so far. Today I am so excited to tell you about the free August Subscriber gift from BYRNE. This gorgeous peacock feather print summer dress is this month’s free gift, and I can’t say enough nice things about it. The skirt is sheer from the upper thigh down, and has a hi-lo type look. I’m sure there’s a name for this type of skirt, but I am not up on my fashion terms. Maybe that’s a sign I need to have some intellectual curiosity here!

So of course I wore this dress to the beach, the colors and the feathered pattern gave me some tropical summer feels. This peacock dress from BYRNE was sent out a few days ago to all Subscriber members. If you missed it just head over to BYRNE and click the subscriber. You might have to rejoin. Subscribers can be tricky sometimes, like anything in Second Life! ha The dress comes in several sizes and includes a head scarf not shown in the photo.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique)

Here are the details, enjoy!

Head Wreath – *LODE* Head Accessory – Gladiolus [pink]

Hair – Clawtooth: Soaked (Brunettes w/roots Pack)

Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento

Skin – Essences – Blake

Dress – (BYRNE) Peacock Dress – Free Subscriber Gift

Tattoos – Nar Mattaru – <Nar> Legend Tattoos

A Sporting Chance

A Sporting Chance

I’m not generally a sporty kinda gal.  Not gonna lie.  However, the World Cup seems to elicit some form of primitive sporting spirit in me (without getting into any particularly sporty kind of clothing – as you can see from my attire today).  Generally I cheer for Italy (Forza Azzurri!), but due to some unfortunate twist of fate that we will not get into, they’re not in the tournament this time around – so instead, I’m cheering for England, for some reason or other.  It’s probably because of the Fish N Chips or the Beatles, but anyway…. I digress!

True Colours

Alma Makeup have their subscriber gift out for this month, and it’s World Cup themed!  You can get a whole host of little face flags for free by clicking on the subscriber unit in their store (if it isn’t delivered automatically, click on the subscriber unit, then click on “history” in the popup – there are other free gifts to be had hiding there too!).  All the flags of the countries participating in the tournament are there, so go ahead and show your true colours!  This gift comes with appliers for Catwa, Lelutka and Omega.

Not Too Sporty

As I alluded to earlier, I always enjoy showing up for sporting events dressed completely contrary to what others dictate – so I think this dress by Pacagaia is pretty perfect!  It comes in a host of colours to suit your needs, and features a pretty daring plunge down the front!  You can get your own by joining the VIP group at Pacagaia which costs 100 Lindens  – there is also a free group to join with different gifts while you’re there!  Oh and, BY THE WAY!  There is also a 100L gift card in the box with this dress – how awesome is that?!

  • Ebody

Radio Gaga

Radio Gaga

Hello, hello, baby
You called, I can’t hear a thing
I have got no service
In the club, you see, see
Wha-wha-what did you say?
Oh, you’re breaking up on me
Sorry, I cannot hear you
I’m kinda busy

My look today totally makes me think of Lady Gaga.  Don’t these glasses look like something she would wear?  I have always enjoyed her wacky sense of style!

Sparkle

My sparkly purple dress by Entice is a free group gift over at Designer Showcase.  You can grab your own daring number by joining the group for free and finding the gift at the Entice display.  Allison showed you another gift available at the event HERE!  Jump on over as quick as you can and grab your gift!

The View

I love these insane glasses by Since 1975, they feature long strips down the front that are super flashy, and just too much fun.  They even come with an HUD to change parts of the glasses to different metallic hues.  You can get your own pair for free by clicking on the subscriber over at Since 1975 , and then clicking on “history” on the popup message.  You’ll find your gift there!

Have a great Saturday Night!

Black Beauty in June

Make a Statement
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Maybe it’s just me but once in a while I still have a thing for what most would call “statement” jewelry. I don’t mean statement in that it has actual words but in that the jewelry its self is a statement. The recent free Subscriber gift from Graffitiwear definitely fits that description.

I really like the almost tribal feel of the necklace and the inclusion of a dainty floral pattern in this jewelry set. The free set from Graffitiwear includes earrings, bangles, and a necklace. Also, each piece has resize scripts for easy fitting. If you’re not already a Graffitiwear Subscribo member, you can join at the Grafftiwear main location. Already a member but missed the gift? You can still rejoin and get the gift for free!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Hong Kong Garden

Hong Kong Garden

Have you ever seen the movie Marie Antoinette?  The one starring Kirsten Dunst and featuring a whole bunch of awesome 80’s music.  I really love the movie a lot, it’s just so visually stunning.  One of the songs on the soundtrack is Hong Kong Garden by Siouxie and the Banshees, and I’m just kinda feeling the vibe of that song in this dress, mixed with the pastel hues of the Sofia Coppola film.  Want your own dreamy dress?  It’s easy as pie!

Senses Working Overtime

I found this lovely high-necked dress by Celestina’s Weddings at the Sense Event.  Join their group for free, and pick up this pretty confection which features a daring split up the side tied at a jaunty angle.  I feel like I could do really cool things in this dress, for some reason.  Well, at the very least I know it would look great dressed up for a fancy event!

Sizes

  • Altamura
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • TMP
  • Venus

A Bit of Sparkle

I also managed to come across some great baubles to complete my look – these bangles are a free gift at Oxide – no group join required, just pay the vendor 1L which will be returned to you along with these pretty bracelets.  So cute.  I also got some free earrings that I snapped up by clicking on the subscriber, and then clicking on the gifts below it.  There are all sorts of goodies to be had over at Oxide, so be sure to check them out!

Guess which movie I’m watching tonight?

Not Goodbye, but Thank You

Butterflies

Not Goodbye, but Thank You…

I looked long and hard for the right quote to begin this post and the only one I could find that was fitting was this:

“This is not goodbye, my darling, this is a thank you.”

To all of you Fabulous readers, to my FabFree team… to those who gave me hunt tips… and to my hunting partner-in-crime Damian, “Thank you” for what would have been three glorious years of blogging coming up this next month.

I Do have to say Farewell for now, however, and so this will be a parting post. If only for a while. Real life has intruded in the form of some health issues and I have to take some time to focus on myself. I will still take some pictures and keep up my Flickr as time allows with my partner-in-crime and hunting buddy that you all have read about now and then and who I am finally giving a name to… my beloved Damian.

And now… the gifts:

This beautiful green dress is one of many free gifts at the anniversary round of We  ❤ RP right now. Don’t worry if you can’t get in right away, as it’s going on all month. You’ll find this dress at the Entice booth. “Be My Wench” comes in sizes to fit TMP, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, Venus, and a Fitmesh.  There is also an alpha included.

Zoom in…

If you zoom in on my hands in the picture you’ll notice my nails… errr claws. I couldn’t resist these Maitreya exclusive claws in black for Maitreya Bento Hands. They are by Meva and move with your Bento animations. They are gorgeous! These are also free at We ❤ RP. Pick them up while you have the chance!

Jewelry anyone?

I am a lover of pretty baubles and my jewelry is free this month too. Just slap the subscriber at Graffitiwear and you’ll get this Sunstone set which includes the necklace, earrings and a ring. The entire set matches perfectly and goes well with the Be My Wench Dress.

And Fameshed!

Love showed you some great gifts from Fameshed in her post [here]. I had gone and checked out the booths and just like We ❤ RP, it is their anniversary round and there are glorious free gifts to be had. If you stop by the Elikatira booth, clicking the gift box with your free Fameshed group active will give you a gift box with three hairs inside! Each is a fatpack of essential colors. I’m showing off Maren in the picture above.

Last but not least…

… my swarm of butterflies (and the tiny little butterfly hair piece which is separate from the swarm) are also a free gift at Fameshed. Just pick them up from the Wasabi Pills vendor, unpack and wear! The hairpiece is perfect for a pretty addition to any hair and the swarm is perfect for photographs.

At last…

One last word… thank you to all of you for everything. I’ve enjoyed every picture, every kind word, every blog post, every reader tip and comment. You are all wonderful. Thank you for being part of my adventure with FabFree. I hope to see you all again when my real life allows!  ❤ Astrid ~
