A Little Bit of Indie

Indie Style 2.0
I like to give myself challenges.  I had a half hour over lunch to “work” in SL, and I committed myself to finding a cool outfit to share with you. For this challenge, I could rely on any of the 5 Minute or 1 Hour groups I belong to and any sales I ran into while at a store.  However, my cap was 100L for all parts of the outfit (clothes, hair, jewelry, and shoes).

Safyra‘s did not disappoint!  Within the first ten minutes, a 5 Lindens 1 Hour deal was posted.  I ran over quick and grabbed the very nice jumpsuit on sale.  She comes with lots of colors. But….while trying to dodge the incoming avatars, I looked around and three OTHER sales caught my eye.  The outfit above is the top from the Set 010 Sunday Sale (35L) which comes with a cute bra/shirt, skirt and boots (the bra, shirt, and skirt all have a color HUD; the boots do not) and the pants and shoes from the Janice set on sale (55L) which comes with a blouse and HUD for both.

Sizes:

  • Kupra
  • Perky
  • Slink (for the Boots in the 010 package)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus

I picked up the FREE!!! subscriber gift (a cool choker with a butterfly) at Zuri which went nicely with this outfit. I love the resizer on her jewelry. It makes everything so much easier!

I had picked up a bunch of No_Match gifts earlier in the day, so I decided to use my time to find the first hairstyle that went with the outfit.  This style is called No_Sea and comes with all of the different color fatpacks. This was a free group gift with 50L membership.

By the time I had picked out the hair and fussed with the colors, I only had 5 minutes left, so I ran over to my studio to snap this pose.

I managed to get everything I needed for less than 100L in the space of 30 minutes!  WOO!!!

Do you have a challenge in mind for me to do?  Hit me up in the comments below!!

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Happy Christmas everyone!  I’ve just nipped away from my RL festivities to make sure I don’t forget all my inworld peeps on this most auspicious of days.  I hope that you’re all enjoying yourselves, however you can, while still being safe and happy and filled with really good food.  I won’t natter incessantly, let’s get to the gifts!

I’m a Pro

Over at Promagic, it’s time for a new FREE subscriber gift!  This really lovely top, skirt and shoes all came free in the box and they’re all so pretty.  All three items come with very extensive HUDs to change the colours and some of the textures too.  You can even change the shade of the applique leaves on the bustier – plus there’s also a hat in the box too if you feel like being a bit jaunty. To get your own, all you have to do is click on the big subscriber sign when you land at Promagic.  Already subscribed but no gift is forthcoming?  Just unsubscribe and resubscribe and it will be sent to you right away (worked for me!).  Yay!

Generous Kim

The very lovely Kim of Kim’s Kreations is always so generous.  She has piles of gifts out at her shop, and they are constantly being switched out for other grand designs.  Today is the last day of her advent calendar (which is free for everyone – just pay 0L!) and inside you’ll find a really gorgeous and extensive set of decor called the Ivory Dreams Flying Skybox.  You can see all the parts right behind me in the photo – a fireplace, chairs, tables, artwork, candles, an ottoman… and even the very cool surrounding skybox that has a floating curtain so you look like you’re hanging out in the breeze.  It’s very striking and so much fun to play around with all the parts to set them up however you like.  If you haven’t picked up the past gifts either – they’re still all out for free, for everyone!  Get over there, don’t miss out on this amazingness – and give Kim your support while you’re at it, she really is a kind, generous soul.

Merry Christmas!  Happy Holidays!  Whatever you celebrate – or if you don’t celebrate at all, I wish you and yours the very best this season.  Thank you all for being here, for sharing the grid with us, and for making us a part of your Second Lives.

Red

Red

The colour red and I have a bit of a love-hate relationship.  In RL, I will categorically refuse to wear said colour, and I’m not 100% sure why.  In SL though, pretty much any colour will set aglow my countenance, so I’m not particularly averse to it.   Lucky for me since there are so many lovely free gifts featuring this rosy hue at this time of year!

Equalized

The folks over at Equalizer Magazine have put out a new issue this month, and with that they are spoiling their readers with some awesome free gifts!  There are some great gifts for both male and female avatars.  The top, skirt and jacket I have on are free subscriber gifts.  To get them, just head over to their head office, and click on the subscriber unit.  If you’re already subscribed, they should have been sent to you, but if they’ve gone missing, hit on the subscribo and look in the history section to get them.  The sweet little bag I’m holding (yes, complete with little snowman!) is from My Bags by Mila Blauvelt.  To get it, you’ll have to join the Equalizer magazine group for free, then click on the gift at the My Bags mainstore.

  • Freya

Sexy Christmas

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! Things are getting hot on this chilly Christmas day… I’m going out all sexy in the snow and yes it’s crazy that I can run outside in the middle of winter in such skimpy attire. That’s the fun of living in a virtual world!

I’m Up to “Snow” Good

My outfit today comes from a hunt and the prizes are by QE Designs. Each prize costs 25 Linden on the Up to Snow Good Hunt currently taking place on the Short Leash sim.

The prizes I am showing today are:

  • A lingerie set which includes the bustier, top, thong and garters with bows. The set comes in red, green, and ice blue colour combinations. The outfit is sized for Lara, Freya, Legacy & Hourglass.
  • A set of BOM stockings that come in red, green, white and blue options. These are fab and fit perfectly under any outfit.
  • A pair of sexy latex boots sized for Lara, Freya, Legacy & Hourglass. The boots can be changed to red & black, red & white, green & red and blue & white via a colour change hud.

Note that this is an adult hunt and all the details about the hunt can be read here. You must be 18+ to participate in the hunt and no child avatars are allowed on the sim.

Santa Baby

Second on my list is this really cute Santa hat and hairstyle! This hair and hat combo is a free subscriber gift at Argrace. Touch their subscriber for their update group for free, and the hair comes in a full fatpack of colours. It’s perfect for the Christmas season! They also have a shorter unisex version with shorter hair fits men and women as a free subscriber gift.

Enjoy, FabFree!

All The Seasons for Witches

Coming Soon

The fall season is coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean I can’t show all things spooky and witchy on the blog. In fact, when I was a FabFree reader, I loved when Pru showed us all of her amazing witchy outfits throughout the year. They were deffinitely an inspiration for me. I love all things witchy, so let’s dig into some witch-themed gifts available on the grid right now!

It’s Not Easy Being Green

Following the end of Halloween at the beggining of November, I was roaming around the grid in this gorgeous green witch skin. Feeling a bit forlorn that the Halloween season was over and designing my costume for next year, I went shopping and exploring in my new green look. I thought I looked cute but you wouldn’t believe the mean comments I got from people about my bright green skin! I guess it’s just not easy being green.

The skin in question is a free gift at Wyrd and despite the bullies out there, it’s an absolutely gorgeous fantasy witch skin. It’s called “Hexed” and you can grab it in-world if you join the free group at Wyrd. It’s also available on the Marketplace for free.

Body Skin Compatibility

BOM Layers and appliers for:

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza
  • Legacy
  • Ebody Reborn

Head Skin Compatibility

BOM Layers and Appliers for:

  • Lelutka Evolution
  • Catwa HD
  • LOGO Enhanced
  • Genus
  • Catwa

Ophelia

The awesome hairstyle I am wearing is a free gift at a new-to-me hair store called Calico. Just join their free VIP group, click the gift board, and a full fatpack of the Ophelia hairstyle will land in your inventory. She’s a beaute! ❤

Another Hunt Down

Third on today’s list are the last goodies I have to share with you all on the FabFree Fallen Leaves & Frost Hunt. The prizes shown in my witchy scene this afternoon are:

  • The dark blue horns, which are decorated with sunflowers and autumn leaves, are a prize at +Inner Mantra+ and they cost 5 Linden.
  • The frosty-toned blue lipstick I am currently wearing is another hunt prize at +Inner Mantra+, and it costs 5 linden. It comes as a BOM layer.
  • The wall piece with mirrors, greenery, and lights is a decor prize from +Inner Mantra+ that costs 5 Linden.
  • The witch’s cabinet with melting candles is the last prize from +Inner Mantra+ and you can own this pretty and witchy furniture item for only 5 Linden.
  • Finally, my adorable shoes are another hunt prize from Mosquito’s Way. These are the “Marylou” boots and they are free on the hunt.

All of the hints and photos for the hunt can be seen here. It’s been an honour to cover some of the prizes on this hunt. Thank you to the wonderful creators that contributed to this excellent event, and to Aline for organizing it! The hunt ends on November 30th, so make sure you pick up the prizes before the end of this month!

See you soon, FabFree!

Handbag Shopping

Handbag Shopping
Hiya, dropping a quickie for you all, in case you are in need of a free outfit for the weekend. Or just because you deserve a new outfit. 🙂

Shopping With Purpose

The last post was about evolving your look every once in a while. Guess goes without saying it also gives you another reason to shop. (Not that all of us need a reason.) Jacx is shopping for handbags, and personally, I feel handbags should have a bit of personality, sometimes the more outlandish they are, the better I like them, plus they have to match some pair of shoes or outfits. Today’s shopping outfit features a free subscriber gift from [ADD]. The Ashley outfit in winter white and red is extremely versatile, with 2 tops a frill top, or the one shown, you can wear the top with or without the sleeves. And 3 styles of pants, regular style for your high heels, underboot style to wear under boots, or the option I chose with pants and boot all in one. You can pick up this free outfit just by popping over to the [ADD] store and giving the subscriber a good tickle. 🙂

Sizes

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

That’s a wrap for today.
