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

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?!

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?

I stopped by E.Vary and found a whole lotta group gifts.  The most recent is some really crazy lipstick appliers for Lelutka one of which you can see me wearing today.  There is also a heck of a lot of fun for Catwa head owners as well – including some super intense gold makeup.  The Lelutka version comes in several dessert-themed styles and this striking turquoise and hot pink look!  If you’re daring enough to try it out,  you can join the E.vary group for 99 Lindens.  There are a whole bunch of other makeup gifts waiting for you on the counter there as well.

Shine on you crazy diamonds!

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 ~

Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/20/2018 – Continuum

Continuum Exterior
Hellooo Fab Free’rs! Fab Free Designer Friday is back this week. I know you’ll enjoy it! This week the post is all about Continuum Fashion. Continuum is a ladies clothing store split into two sections. One side is what you might call “going out” wear, think sexy cute dresses and skirts. The other side is shoes and frilly lingerie. As soon as you land at the Continuum main store, you’ll be greeted by new releases and the first opportunity to score a free gift.
Continuum Gifts & Offers
The Continuum Subscriber is located just outside the entrance. There is where you can pick up the free set of butterfly hair sticks, they are the current Subscriber gift. There is a discount area toward the back of the store with lots of cute inexpensive finds. The group Midnight Mania board is also located toward the back of the store. First, I’m getting a little ahead of myself. You’ll want to be sure and pay attention to the wall of group gifts behind the front desk just inside the entrance.

Continuum Gifts & Offers 2
The top photo above shows the wall behind the circulation desk at Continuum. There are several group gifts for various store affiliated groups to be had here. This is also where you will find the Fabulously Free in SL group gift. This gift is free to all Fab Free group members, so don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag. You may recall this Fabulous gift from Love’s post “Don’t Quit Your Daydream.” Also you will find the free Continuum Fashion group gifts on the same wall.  The Continuum Fashion group is free to join as well. Finally, that same back room I mentioned, it also has some group lucky chairs, alongside the Midnight Mania board, and the discounted items. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

I have a love-hate relationship with lucky boards.  There are some that I totally adore, because I stand there for about 5 minutes and get a whole lotta swag.  Then there are others that I believe must hate me.  I stand there for ages, hoping for that letter A to pop up, and all I see is things like “number 5” or “Q”.  What the heck man!  What gives?  Despite the sometime frustration of standing beside boards that like to taunt me, I do get some really awesome stuff, and today is no exception!

Lucky Letter Love

Empire – purveyor of awesome shoes galore – have just put out 5 new lucky boards, and they’re completely free!  You don’t have to join the VIP group for these ones, there’s another update group to join that gets you these pretty little sandals!  The group joiner for this is right beside the lucky boards in store.  I got the Penstemon shoes, that are just so sweet and come in 20 colours – you can even change the colour of the gems on the bows.  Gorgeous!

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Belleza
  • Slink
  • Toodledoo Baby
  • Toodledoo Kid

Top it Off

There’s no waiting and hoping for this gift from Promagic – just click on their free subscriber and you’ll get this really cute tank top that is splashed with happy colours.  You may need to click and go into the “history” section of the subscriber to find their April gift, and if that doesn’t work, just unsubscribe and re-subscribe, because that totally worked for me!  This top fits my Maitreya body perfectly.

Right – back to waiting for some more gifts to pop out of this lucky board!

Tending Bar

Tending Bar_001

Tending Bar

Speaking of 80’s Rock bands… while Aline and Love were have a conversation about Whitesnake videos, I was tending bar at Thames River Valley, and 80’s music just happened to be on the radio. Coincidence huh? I like the 80’s bands, reminds me of my childhood. Yeah, I’m old.

Old but…

… feeling Fabulous… in my FabFree gift from House of Ruby. If you haven’t picked it up yet, stop by the main-store and nab this great applier shirt free for Fabfree group members. It’s applier only (Omega and Slink) and fits like a glove. It comes in this great turquoise color fit for any occasion. As always, FabFree group gifts won’t cost you a single linden.

Tending Bar_002

Another great shirt…

Same store, but another great shirt. While I was at House of Ruby, I noticed the wall of gifts currently out for both men and women and clicked the Double T-shirt in Black for men. It didn’t require a group space at all. I just had to subscribe to information and the gift was sent to me free. A win-win in my book. Two shirts great shirts for one stop for the day. This one is also an applier shirt in Omega and Slink appliers.

Another set of bracelets.

I showed you the free Chop Zuey Castory bracelets in blue in my post [here]. But I happen to be a member of the Chop Zuey group and had also picked them up in black and so put them on for this post. They are a great look I think! The Chop Zuey group has a one-time fee of 350 linden, but the creator puts out frequent and generous men’s and women’s gifts, making it well worth the fee if you stay in the group.

Have a great Easter!
