Come Dancing

Hey FabFree!

Come Dancing

One of my favorite things about Second Life is finding fun flirty clothes that I’d love to wear in real life. And that’s what I found at Clementine, a new-to-me designer. I stumbled on this cool designer through Third Life, a freebies and hunts group in world. This is ‘Alana’ and it’s the free gift for Third Life group members from Clementine. Alana comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL, Fitmesh XS-XL and appliers for SLink, Maitreya and Belleza.  I love the fun this fun look, I think it’s perfect to hit the dance floor in.

The Third Life Group is a tiny little five Lindens to join and you’ll find tons of great things each month. The Alana dress is the September gift from Clementine so don’t wait too long to nab it!

Urban Native

Urban Native

I’m enjoying the last few days of not quite cold weather as the fall days allow for walks through parks without jackets. It’s that perfect weather for shorts and a shirt and the breezes are lovely even with the turning leaves.

Even if I’m an urban native… I found the perfect shirt for my outing at… none other than Native Urban. Their group is FREE to join and they have out a FREE group gift for men that you won’t want to pass up. It is this outstanding banshee shirt that includes mesh sizes for all the major men’s mesh bodies including Slink, Adam, TMP, and Aesthetic. Since it is made for mesh bodies, there is no alpha included (just as a heads up) but with some fiddling an an alpha from your inventory you might be able to make this FREE shirt work with your system body if you are still using one.

Speaking Abstractly

Speaking Abstractly

Sapphire Teebrook was away for a while due to real life illness and so the Glitterati August and September group gifts were late in coming. To thank everyone for their patience and the many well wishes she got, there are now five new gifts out at the Glitterati main-store. Three of these gifts are free to all, no group required. Two are group tag required (the August and September group gifts).

The group is 100L to join but there are about 80 past group gifts to pick up, several of which have been blogged before [HERE] and [HERE] for example.

In the picture above, Astrid is wearing two of the free to all gifts — the Julia dress in abstract with the Joyce heels. You don’t need a group to pick these up, just buy them for 0L. The dress comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh for Maitreya and Belleza. I’m not sure how long they will be out, so be sure to hurry over and pick them up.

One Magical, Misty Morning

One Magical, Misty Morning
Hello there, FabFree Readers!  I’m Kathryn Vayandar, one of the two newest bloggers for Fabulously Free, but you can call me Kat.  A long time Second Life resident (8 years…..practically an SL senior citizen, but don’t get the walker ready yet!), I’m a dedicated bargain hunter and I’m excited to share my shopping adventures with you.

Today, my puppy and I took a stroll on a quiet country road in The Forest, an enchanted woodland sim that hosts a shopping event each month.  While Ripley wandered off, happily sniffing out bunny trails, I paused, enjoying the misty morning light, clad in the first Fabulous Find I’d like to share with you.  Knowing the day would quickly warm up, I chose to wear the cute, knotted top from Hottest Fashion’s gift for Third Life members.  The Melanie Set also includes a pair of white, high-waist shorts, but since the morning air was brisk, I donned a pair of sleek, leather pants from Greane Design which I discovered on The Marketplace for only 69 lindens.  My comfy Tawny Sandals from Slipper Originals and The Shadow Lord Choker (a free gift from Ronsem) blogged here by Love Trill, completed my ensemble.  The necklace is an older gift, but it is one of my favorite casual pieces and is still available, so I thought I’d mention it in case you might be interested.

Oh dear, I think I need to rescue the rabbits from Ripley…..until next time, happy shopping!

Last month Prey had out a great pair of jeans for the men… this month they have out a duo of FREE fall mesh sweaters that you won’t want to miss out on. The group is FREE to join, and the gifts are FREE with your tag. You’ll get the sweater above in all the standard mesh sizes in both black and white. A close up look will reveal a nubby texture that is really excellent on.

There is still four more days of the Indian Summer Cart Wash Sale left for you to catch the steals and deals. Astrid showed you a pair of gorgeous ladies sandals from Roped Passion’s [HERE] but the cart also has excellent men’s sandals as well. I picked up the Larue Black Sandals for just 10L. There are several other colors out for the same low price for you gentlemen to choose from. The box includes a pair of sandals to fit men’s slink feet as well as a pair of unrigged mesh sandals that can be adjusted for other feet types.

Smiley faces all around

Smiley faces all around

Hello there to all you Fabulously Free readers! I’m Sheidey (but please just call me Edi) and I enjoy mulling over hunt hints, slapping midnight mania boards and long walks on the beach especially if they lead to a Kraken-themed unlucky dip. Truth be told, I hemmed and hawed a little over what to feature on my first post of this wonderful blog. Wings? No. Dress and boots combination? Maybe for later. Broken unicycle? Wait. How did that get into my inventory?

Mysteries aside, I finally settled on the hunt that’s running concurrently with the Fluffy and Fierce event. If the ‘cute with an edge’ look is right up your alley then hop on down to the event and pick up the hunt hint notecards from some of the participating merchants. The hunt item is hidden in their respective main stores so while you’re hunting you can get distracted by all sorts of lucky letters, group gifts, weasels, etc etc…It’s so much fun!

The outfit pictured is the Bring It On batwing set from Blasphemic that comes in five mesh sweater sizes and system layer ripped leggings with an Omega applier as well as appliers specific to popular mesh bodies. It also includes a studded belt that comes with a resizer hud. I love the laid back look and feel of the outfit and paired it up with a pair of boots that I got off the Midnight Mania board at Psychotic Neko. I do believe that it’s the first set of boots in my Second Life closet to have claws. Definitely made for walking.

Smiley faces all around headshot

To tie the whole look together, I’m wearing the Cella hair from Damselfly that you can get for free at the Crossroads event and the new group gift from WoW Skins called Angy. The simple hairstyle and fresh-faced skin just adds to the casual factor of the whole outfit. It was a lot of fun putting this look together and I hope you had fun reading my first post just as much as I enjoyed writing it!

She’s So Cold

Snapshot_003
Hey there FabFree! It’s f f f f reeeezing in my part of the RL world today, so I came inworld searching for a jacket and some coffee to warm up!

I found the Milla Jacket at Crystal Drops set as a free group gift to the Third Life inworld group.  There is a 5L fee to join if you are not already a member, but luckily I was so it was just free to me!  The shirt and jacket are one piece so there will be no digging through your inventory to find a short that doesn’t stick through it.  We all know how frustrating that can be!  In the folder you will find mesh sizes XXS – L with a co-ordinating alpha layer.

Hmm.. I appear to be still freezing.  Perhaps I should have done this all in RL first!

Time and Again

Time and Again

Certain stores are good for group gifts time and again… and Prism is one of those that offers a top quality monthly group gift for both ladies and men. In case you missed them, there are several past group gifts out, even though I’m showing you the current FREE September group gift called “Jupiter.”

Jupiter is an outfit that comes with white capris pants and a sweater with a texture change hud. The sweater is white as well, but includes four grey print overlays including the timepiece texture in the picture above. You get all the standard mesh sizes.

Last month’s group gift is just as nice, and you’ll want to pick it up too, if you haven’t already. Gabriel showed it to you [HERE].

Getting Closer

*waves* Heyya, FabFree!

Getting Closer

Oh, Entice…. you never fail to have something I can’t live without. And today is no different. I popped over to the Entice mainstore  today and between the group gifts and the lucky boards AND the Midnight Manias, I was nearly overwhelmed with cool stuff. But I had to pick one to show off and this is it. This is the ‘Close’ casual top and pants set and it’s one of the free group gifts currently available. ‘Close’ comes in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L as well as fitmesh XXS-L and there are appliers for SLink, Maitreya and Belleza.  There are three alphas included too: one for each piece and one for the entire outfit.  AND the top has a HUD with a choice of three Fall fabulous colors! Whew… that’s a great new addition to the wardrobe without breaking the bank at all. As with all gifts and group promotions, ‘Close’ may not be available long so hurry over to Entice and check it out. One quick note: the gift board does require you to “pay” 1L to receive the gift but it immediately pays you right back.

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

If it’s been a while since you’ve stopped by Analog Dog to check out the FREE ball on the back beach, now is the time to do so, as there are some new FREE hairs in the ball just waiting for you to pick them up. In the picture above, I’m sporting a messy curly do called idyll, to which I added the jana bang set from the ball. The ball included both a hud for the dark blondes set as well as a hud for light reds… however since the hud includes a tinting option, you can get much darker brown and black shades on the hair as well.

Seeing Red 2

In the picture above I am showing you just one of two FREE hats that were also included in the FREE ball. This is the mill hat and is a perfect fit over the top of idyll once I removed the jana bang piece. I love the classy black hat. There was also a modern red print fedora as well!

Seeing Red 3

This classy style above is called samadhi, and is a lovely side-swept mesh style. Like idyll, it comes in dark blonde and light reds.

In the picture below I’m showing you the last addition to the FREE ball — scream cheese. It does just kind of make you want to scream “cheese” and take pictures. It’s one of those fabulous hairs that is casual and fun.

To find the free ball, fly up and back to the beach-y area of the Analog Dog hair sim and look for the semi-transparent bubble. Buy it for 0L and these great styles are yours.

Seeing Red 4

I’m not quite done yet though… I wanted to mention a few other tricks up my sleeve in my style today. Sometimes your skin needs a refresh. Make up is a great way to give a favorite skin a new feel, and testers are a nice way to get a new look without a lot of Lindens. I ran across this FREE tester by alaskametro called Orchid… it’s this pretty lip-stain that freshened up my avatar’s face. You won’t even have to teleport anywhere, just pick it up off the marketplace. It comes in a system applier as well as appliers for TMP, Eve, Lelutka, Loudmouth, NyamNyam, Omega, and Slink Visage.

To polish off my new look I added a ring from the Cart Wash Sale, because jewelry always adds a nice finishing touch. This classy cocktail ring from Luminesse is stylish and only 10L. If you stop by the cart you’ll find several beautiful pieces for men and women both to add to your inventory.
