Fishy Strawberry Goodbye Sale

FabFree: Fishy Strawberry Closing Sale
Hello there Fabulouses! Brace yourselves, because today I have some bittersweet news for you.

Fishy Strawberry says goodbye with a 25L sale

It’s always sad to see a talented designer close it’s doors in Second Life, and I know that Fishy Strawberry will be missed by many when their land is sold, and they close the doors.  I remember finding this shop featured at The Dressing Room (the original one little house build!!), which may be as far back as 2011 or 2012!  I always loved their style and how well everything fit and they have been generous with gifts too (which are still available in the store, btw!).

For an unspecified amount of time, until the land is sold, they are hosting a store wide 25L sale – including all of the new stuff in mesh body sizing…  That’s the sweet part.

*Fishy Strawberry* Goodbye Sale

Where do we go? Where do we go now?

Where do we go? Where do we go now?

You guys, this morning I put my baby girl on the school bus for her first day of Kindergarten. She was so excited and waved happily out the window as the bus drove away. I am…okay, kind of. I know she’s going to do great but I could use some hair pats. haha So I called my mom to apologize for ever growing up and putting her through this and then I came here to find something pretty to distract myself with.

My Distraction

This sweet dress was only 25L at Belle Epoque. It is marked down for yesterday’s 25L Tuesday and was still discounted this morning when I went and scooped it up for myself. You can choose either the white that I’m wearing or pink. Both are lovely and have that classy, timeless look that I’ve come to associate with Belle Epoque. I stuck around and took my picture on Belle Epoque’s pretty sim. Even in this gorgeous location and wearing these fabulous things, I realize that this probably isn’t my best work. But I’m fragile right now, okay? Just tell me I’m pretty and give me chocolate and/or bourbon. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go see how much L I can blow on gachas.

Neon Nights

Neon Nights

I am, as I’m sure you are, ready for an injection of some warmth.  I am imagining summer nights today, with neon sunsets of orange, pink and gold, sinking downward towards the ever moving and shimmering waters of the beach.  It may be too early for that, but I found my way to the sunny climes of SL, donned some summery clubwear and threw some shades on for good measure.

Topping it Off

My top, slick as oil, was a free group gift I picked up in my many wanderings around the grid.  The CLBlue shop is new to me, but the quality of the top is impressive and I’m hoping to swing by again soon to see what else they have to offer.  I went on a rant earlier about how talented SL creators are, and how I couldn’t possibly fathom how they made clothing all reflective and shiny – it’s so cool, isn’t it?  You can grab this top by joining the CLBlue group for free!

Shirt Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Kemono Default
  • Kemono Rei
  • Maitreya
  • V-Tech
  • Kemono Fitted Torso

Jean-ius

I found a skirt to go with my top at Epoch.  Pretty much the entire store is priced under 75L, so if you’re looking for something budget-friendly, you should definitely check them out.  I picked up this jean skirt for 25L, which is a great deal since I can wear it all the time, with loads of different tops.   There are a bunch of different shades of jean skirts in store, ranging from light blue to this dark black.

UPDATE:  Looks like the price has gone up to 100L for the skirt – Alas! 

Skirt Sizes

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Keep wishing for that heat!

Is It Spring Yet?

Belleepoque25LTuesdayHEY!  Do you know what day it is?

It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time for another round of 25L Tuesday!  I received a notice in the Belle Epoque inworld group last night to notify me that they are offering their {Uma} skirt and two different coloured tops (I am wearing the orange, but there is also a sunshiny yellow!) for 25L a piece and it just screamed “BLOG ME”, so I had to show it to you!

I know you all love to see free stuff here on FabFree, but you know…  sometimes these offers are actually less expensive than a group join fee, so I thought they were worth a mention here.  I know that if I had found these three items as group gifts with a 75L join fee, I’d have paid it to pick them up, so paying 25L a pop for them is all the same to me!  Plus…  SPRING FLOWERS! (SWOON)

Try Before You Buy!

The three {Uma} pieces come in one fitted mesh size that fits my Maitreya Lara body like a glove, but since it doesn’t specify which body exactly they fit, please do try a demo before you buy.  While you are there make sure you check out the lucky boards outside on the lawn, and the group gifts available inside the store.

Only A Morning Person On December 25th

Only A Morning Person On December 25thIt’s true! I have said it time and time again…

I am just not a morning person, but this all changes on one day of the year…  December 25th!  On December 25th, I am up bright and early because I don’t want to waste a minute of the most wonderful day of the year.  Everyone is on their best behavior, you can eat and drink whatever you want and… There are presents!  When I saw this sweater in the Pinky Pie Stocking Hunt with the truth written all over the front at Pink Cream Pie, I knew it was made for me and had to have it so I checked out the rest of the hunt.  I found a few things that suit me, and am wearing prize #10 and #11 today!

Pinky Pie Stocking Hunt

The Pinky Pie Stocking Hunt lasts until the end of the month and until then you can pick up hidden pink stockings around the mainstore for 25L each.  Don’t worry, you won’t be stuck with stuff that you won’t wear, because there is a handy hunt guide below (you can find this guide instore on the wall too) so you can just pick up the number of the items that appeal to you!  Each item is original mesh, and most are fitted for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink.

1st Annual Pinky Pie Stocking Hunt - Dec. 2017Nailed It!

Just one more thing…  My Pearlessence White Nail Appliers are available at The Paying it Forward Event as a free group gift (free to join)!  I included the vendor add inside my photo so that you can see all of the pretty white and silver options :).

Shopping in Style

Coat_001

Phew! I decided to start my holiday shopping early… as in before waiting until Christmas Eve like I usually do. It was cold out so I bundled up and headed out with my purse in hand to check out the local shops. Always shop local I say! I love the deals you can get at the Mom & Pop stores. You just can’t beat hometown pride. I took a moment to rest on a park bench though because I’m looking for the perfect gift for a special friend and I just haven’t found it yet…

Shopping in Style

You can shop in style too! I picked up my coat dress with its matching handbag for free as part of the POE hunt from Glitterati. The dress has a classic look with a great nubbly texture that is very realistic. You’ll get classic mesh sizes XS – L with an alpha layer if you need it. I’m wearing the Maitreya body and had no problem fitting it with a medium and using my alpha system to cover up anything I needed to. It’s stylish and I love the embossed tan leather handbag that you get with it! All for free!

Keeping my Legs Warm

I needed something to keep my legs warm in cold air while I was shopping, so I checked the marketplace and found these beige leggings by Mette’s. They matched perfectly, came in appliers for Maitreya and Omega, and were only 25L! Now that’s a deal! It will leave me plenty of leftover spending money to buy a gift for my special friend.

Well, break’s over! Back to shopping! Have a great day FabFree Readers!

Indian Jewell

25L Tuesday_002

It’s Tuesday!

And that mean’s bargain’s galore! I headed out and checked out the deets for you to see what I could find so you wouldn’t have to do all the hunting yourself! You’ll want to catch these gems before the day is out and pick them up for yourself. Be sure to hurry, the deals end at midnight SLT, tonight!

First, stop by Calico Hair, where you’ll find two pretty hairs you can pick up. The color packs are just 25L each or you can get the fatpack for 150L. I picked up Luna II but there is also a pretty side braid out as well. My new hairstyle is pictured above and below so you can see both the front and the back.

Speaking of…

… both the front and the back. I had to show off both the front and the back of this fabulous 25L Tuesday special tattoo from Dita Couture. This tattoo called Indian Jewell is a beauty, with intricate details on both the front and back of the body and it is a full upper body tattoo (though my dress covers part of it for modesty sake). I wanted to make sure you could see both sides, thus the two pictures. If you purchase this you will get:

Tattoo appliers:

  • System layer
  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Slink
  • Belleza

In addition there are three colors of stones that can go above the elephant on the back. You get Black, Red, and Sapphire stones that can be interchangeably added to the tattoo.

25L Tuesday_001

One last thing…

If you were admiring my pretty dress you’ll want to stop by Faida. It is also a 25L Tuesday special and you can pick it up in a Maitreya only size for just 25L. Though I think if you fiddled with your body, it would fit other shapes. For 25L, it’s a pretty gown for roleplay!
