Romancing Wertina

Little Red Flowers
Oh Hello! I’ve missed you Fab Free! After a much needed vacation, I’m back and happy to be here. Today I picked up the Fifty Linden Friday offer from Clawtooth and had the opportunity to pick up a few items at Wertina before they close their doors forever. Saving the closing sale for last, this whispy hairstyle from Clawtooth is a FLF must have! The hairstyle comes with an Essentials pack with a wide range of natural hair colors. It also includes a separate color change hud for the flower headband. You can get your copy of this lovely hairstyle for just 50 lindens today only, at Clawtooth.
Winter Romance
It’s always a little bittersweet when a shop leaves Second Life. I just yesterday found out that Wertina will be closing soon. Unfortunately I do not know when the actual closing date is. In the  mean time however, everything at the shop is marked down considerably. I did a bit of shopping yesterday evening and most of what I saw was priced between 10 and 35 lindens. I picked up a small handful of items, including this sweet floral nightgown. This little mesh dress is just 5 lindens and comes in standard mesh sizes. There are a few colors to pick from as well. At Wertina you’ll find women’s fashion with everything from jackets and shoes to dresses. Needless to say, you won’t want to miss out on the opportunity to grab some great bargains.

Here are the Details, Enjoy!

Wrap it Up with a Bow

Wrap it Up with a Bow 1

Feeling lucky

I was feeling lucky, and I happened to stop by The Little Bat because it’s a place I can try my luck when I think a lucky streak has hit. It has 4 Lucky Letter boards, two Midnight Madness boards and a Lucky Guess game that will all let you win fabulous Gothic style clothing for free, no group required. I managed to round up a lot of goodies, but my favorite was this free Heather Top in purple with its black bow and flared sleeves. It came in all the standard sizes and a good quality alpha layer. It was well worth waiting for my lucky letter!

Checking out Ostara’s Altar Hunt

I ran across a little Hunt that I couldn’t resist. There are 10 Ostara’s Eggs hidden about on the Ostara’s Altar Faire right now among the booths that are on display (lots of great sale items in the booths). Each egg is only 5L when you find it and contains a quality gift from a great creator. My personal favorite item matched my look and my sweater and was a gift from Oubliette — a pair of Pastel Goth Chucks. These shoes are non-rigged mesh and should fit just about any foot type. I only had to do a little bit of editing to get them to fit my Maitreya feet. I feel certain they would fit Slink and TMP feet as well.

The other gifts were just as nice, and this Hunt lasts until April 16, so you have some time to stop by and wander around the little faire to see what you can see. I’d recommend the shopping there as well!

Patchwork Goodness

Patchwork_001

More goodies.

I showed you some Graffitiwear goodness in my last post here, but there was another dress I couldn’t resist at the Graffitiwear main-store that I had to pick up. All I needed was the Graffitwear group tag (it only cost me a mere 5L) and I was able to pick up the March Springtime Dress as a free gift. It’s all kinds of patchwork yumminess and I couldn’t pass it up!

It comes in these sizes:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Patchwork_002

Since it’s March…

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up in about a week, I couldn’t pass up adding a little touch of green to my outfit. I found these pretty toe rings by ECCO jewelry for Slink mid feet on the Marketplace for just 10L. They only fit Slink mid feet so be sure you have the right feet before you purchase them! But aren’t my footsies cute!

In Denial

Snapshot_001
We don’t want to talk about it…. ACHOOO! we’re NOT sick!

A sick day for two

If you are finding yourself in need of some night wear / sick day wear, be sure to check out the Orange*Pekoe Marketplace Store for my ensemble today.  As I have previously mentioned on FabFree before, Orange Pekoe usually releases an “orange pekoe” coloured wearable demo of their newly released items, so you can get this colour for free or just a few lindens in most of their designs.

My outfit today consists of the Bathrobe With Nightgown Set, which comes with the nightie, robe, slippers and mask as shown!  The mask comes in two versions actually – one over the eyes and one over the forehead.  I let my pup wear the spare.  This entire set is available for just 5L!

Now if you will excuse us…  we are going back to bed!

Plum for Christmas

Plum for Christmas

Going back to knitwear.

So far I’ve been having so much fun rooting around the grid to find interesting pieces of knitwear. There are so many different designs but then again I shouldn’t be surprised as creativity in Second Life runs rampant. Today I’m going to be showing you the Ruffled Knit Bodysuit in plum that you can win from the mischievous Kraken at Graffitiwear. You’ll need to wear your group tag in order to wrestle and/or cajole prizes from Mr. Kraken and if you’re not already a member there is a group join fee of 5L. Prizes from the Kraken changes out weekly however and the group tag gives you access to Lucky and Midnight Mania boards that are changed out just as often. You’ll also be receiving monthly group gifts, Graffitiwear’s December group gift was blogged {HERE} by Astrid if you’d like to take a gander at what it is, so with all these goodies it’s definitely worth the 5L to join. Once you’ve gained the upper hand from that Kraken you’ll find that the Ruffled Knit Bodysuit caters to both classic avatars and those with mesh bodies.

Layers for classic bodies include:

  • Bodysuit top: Shirt and Jacket layer
  • Bodysuit bottom: Pants and Underwear layer
  • Sleeve lengthening: Glove layer (not worn in picture)

The appliers provided in the prize package are:

  • Master applier hud containing appliers for Slink, Wowmeh and mesh bodies using the Omega system.
  • Gloves applier hud containing appliers for Slink, Wowmeh and mesh bodies using the Omega system. (not worn in picture)
  • TMP Hud

I really adore the deep plum color of this body suit but that’s second only to the ruffles that give it its name. They give the whole bodysuit a feminine and unique quality and I almost feel like a fairy while wearing it. The best part about the prim ruffles is that permission to copy and modify them are enabled so you can experiment with their position and size on your avatar’s body easily and also make copies in case there’s a mess. All in all I’m really happy with this find so hurry down to Graffitiwear before Mr.Kraken eats up this gift for good.

Speaking of faeries.

If you’ve read Kat’s post {HERE}, you’ll notice the lovely antlered hair that she has on. That head turning hairstyle is eXxEsS hair store’s past Christmas group gift and I’m happy to report that eXxEsS has continued this tradition and is offering a free hairstyle for this season as well with this whimsical baubled hairdo. I adore the Christmas ornaments decorating this sweeping hairstyle and was happy to see that there is a Hud available to customize the ornaments to suit your mood and outfit. Speaking of customization there are two sets of hair available in the gift package and they come with their own extensive color Hud as well as options to enable breeze and materials or both together. I tried on the breeze option and it looked as if the wispy bangs were moving in the wind and that only means more photo opportunities! To add this beautiful hairstyle to your collection simply head down to eXxEsS‘ main store and buy it for 0L.

Two words for you, Cart. Sale.

If you’ve noticed Love’s post {HERE} you’d know that The Wash Winter Cart Sale has begun! I missed the Summer sale at The Wash and am very, very excited to check out the 10L deals for this current sale. I appreciate that some items are transferable so that you can purchase some great but inexpensive gifts for your friends! On one of my very first rounds around the sim, I found the Belenda boots by Sage and the first thing that caught my eye was that it was both compatible with mesh as well as classic feet. The second thing that caught my eye was the fact that there were twelve (pink worn in the picture) different color options available on top of an easy to use Hud that lets you customize the studs at the boot’s heel. Needless to say, I fell in love with these boots right away and am very happy with not only the leather texture and vivid colors but the price as well. Great quality for 10L? Count me in!

I’ll leave you with ad for these boots so that you can get a look-see at all the colors you’ll be getting with your purchase.

She Is An Amiable Woman

Snapshot_004
Sheesh! That thing called “real life” has kept me so busy over the last week that I feel like I haven’t been able to put the time I like into publishing blog posts here on FabFree.  I am very thankful that we have such an inspired and dedicated blog team to keep things hopping for our wonderful readers.  I am hoping however, that this week will be a little easier on me so I can catch up… because there is TONS out there that I’d like to show you!

What’s free today?

Today I am showing off two items at Amiable, where you will find a wall full of free group gifts!

  1.  Vitamin Color Glitter Balloon Knit Top: This cozy black sweater textured with sparkly gold flecks is available as a free group gift to the inworld group members of the Third Life group which is 5L to join.  This top comes in XXS-L mesh sizes and includes the co-ordinating alpha layer for those that require it.  There is an option to wear the sweater with or without a collar.  I am wearing it, but it’s a little tough to see under the snuggly warm muffler I am wearing which is also free…
  2.  Knit Muffler Welcome Gift:  The Knit Muffler Welcome Gift as shown on my avatar comes in a pack of three colours.  These are editable so that you can shift them around under hair and over sweaters etc.  You can pick this up as a free group gift on the group gift wall behind the desk after you join their free group!

If you are a long time reader of FabFree, you might remember Calleja Fairey posting a few things here and there from Amiable, and they may still be available on the group gift wall too.

Sinister to Sultry

Sinister to Sultry Sometimes all you need is a little makeup and a change in eye-color to change your look in a dramatic way. Using eyes by S0NG that I picked up at the Crossroads event, and makeup from the 50 Shades of Catwa Hunt happening at Indulge Temptation, I was able to take Pru’s look from slightly sinister to sultry. Pru’s wearing the same head, hair, and base skin in both photos.

In my opinion eyes from S0NG almost always have an otherworldly look to them. The Nyx eyes gacha by S0NG at the Crossroads event is no exception. These eyes have that signature glassy look S0NG is known for, and come in a huge variety of colors that range from natural to unnatural and everything in between. These sparkling eyes are available for just 55 lindens per play at the Crossroads event. Included with each pair of eyes is a mesh set of eyes, a matching alpha, and a system layer set.

The dramatic eye shadow and intensely colored lipsticks are just a few of the 50 total Catwa makeup appliers you can hunt down during the Indulge Temptation 50 Shades of Catwa Hunt. The item you’ll be hunting for is a little Catwa logo. Each hunt prize is 5 lindens and includes a single shade of lipstick or eye shadow. There are no groups to join, just head over to Indulge Temptation and enjoy the hunt!

Here are the details, Happy Hunting!

Galaxies

Galaxies

My Second Life closet seems to have taken a leaf or three out of the pages of my first. It’s laughably messy for one thing, and for another, it’s slowly being conquered by t-shirts. Solid colored ones, ones with slogans or symbols or band logos…I find them difficult to resist and this was most certainly true with the t-shirt pictured. It’s perky purple and pink tie and dye design is simple but eye catching and needless to say I fell in love with it as soon as I stepped into the retirement sale room at Imbue. At 50L I felt that it was a steal but if you’re not as big a t-shirt fan as I am there are other clothing items at the sale for you to peruse. The shirt comes in five standard mesh sizes (XXS – L) and has a very good alpha layer. While you’re there and if it strikes your fancy join the Imbue group for 50L and slap the Midnight Mania board or try your luck on the Letters. Oh and don’t forget to pick up the group gifts, one of which has been blogged by Prudence {HERE}

As the pattern on the shirt reminded me of galaxies I quickly paired it up with another closet staple of mine, the skater skirt. The one above comes from Mag<3 B‘s Marketplace store and will cost you only 5L. It comes in five standard mesh sizes (XS -XL) as well as sizes specific to Slink, Belleza, and Maitreya bodies. The light and airy textures are wonderful and not only that it has a subtle dusting of glitter over it which I thought tied in nicely with the shirt.

Up next are the garter socks from Sn@tch and boots from Baby Monkey. These two stores were some of the very first I’ve stepped into in my first few days of Second Life and I’ve come back time and again because of their quality products and generous designers. The Shannon garter socks pack contains thirteen different colors of system layered socks as well as Omega and Slink applier HUDs. It’s currently in one of Sn@tch‘s riot vendors and I got my copy at 63L. If you’re planning on getting these bring a friend or seven. Sn@tch has six riot vendors and you can try to see just how low you can bring them. When you’re done hop by to Baby Monkey to pick up these boots. Baby Monkey has a 20L join fee and past group gifts like those cute boots above cost 10L each.

Galaxies Headshot

The skin I’m wearing is 7 Deadly s{K}ins‘ latest group gift called Klaasje. I love the subtle makeup on the skin as well as the fact that this month’s gift was really very generous. Two system skins in the tone Caramel, Lelutka and Catwa mesh face applier, shape and eyebrow shape along with a style card. 7 Deadly s{K}ins has a group fee of 150L but the Klaasje skin and all past group gifts will be available to you for free this month so it’s most certainly worth it. To get a look at the male group gift by 7 Deadly s{K}ins it’s been blogged {HERE} by Loki.

To top it off is the Lyra hair from Alice Project that you can get for free by slapping their midnight mania board. There’s no group join required so this beautifully feathered style is just a click away. If colored hair is not to your taste the Lyra hair comes with a hud mishmash of fifteen different colors and I hope you find one that fits you perfectly. I did!
