Festive Fashion and Holiday Treats

Holiday Goodies

Hello and happy weekend Fab Free’rs! Oh My Goodness! This December really is the month that just keeps on giving. It’s almost impossible to keep up with all the gifts, hunts, sales, and advents happening. Speaking of sales, the Cart Sale has started at The Wash sim. For all the details about this season’s Cart Sale, check out the announcement post Love did here.  For this post I’m happy to share with you one of the Cart Sale items by CroM. I also picked up a couple of holiday goodies at Sam’s Nails. Keep reading for all the info.

The Sweater Dress – This sweet little sweater dress is one of the 10 linden items by CroM at The Cart Sale. It is super cute on and comes in several sizes. You won’t want to miss this perfect for the holiday season sweater and all the other inexpensive finds at the CroM booth at The Cart Sale. Not into red, no worries, the dress has a color change hud with an equally cute and festive green option.  Also, this sweater dress includes an alpha layer and sizes suitable for classic non-mesh avatars!
Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs-XL), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), EBody, Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Holiday Goodies – Just on a whim I stopped by a little shop called Sam’s Nails. I’m certainly glad I did, not only are they having 12 days of advent gifts, there are several group gifts available. This hold-able mug full of holiday cheer is one of the several current group gifts. Also, the gingerbread man with his own hold animation is the Day 13 Advent gift at Sam’s Nails. What I like about these is the hold animation is set with a high priority so it should work with most Animation Overrides.  Both the advent gifts, and the group gifts require the Sam’s Nails group tag. There is a join fee of 150 linden. Also, the previous day’s Advent gifts are still available for free with the group tag.

Here are the details, enjoy!

The Spirit of Christmas

The Spirit of ChristmasIt’s almost Christmas Fab Free!! Are you ready? I am never ready. LOL However I look and feel one step closer with an irresistibly cute group gift from !gO!, a FREE skin from Essences, and a winter-y gacha from LODE. I feel like a mythical Christmas spirit or one of Santa’s magical elves. Hopefully with all the Christmas spirit I’ll feel more like wrapping presents and baking goodies later. For now, I’ll get to the details!

LODE Fir Hair Wreath

This gorgeous highly detailed hair wreath is a gacha from LODE. You’ll find this gacha machine to the left as you enter the LODE main store. As with most of the gacha machines at LODE this one is just 60 lindens per play. Not only is this hair wreath gorgeous, it’s also able to be sized with a touch menu. There are several equally beautiful hair accessories to be won, even one with some adorable snowmen!

Essences KittyCats Advent Gift

Essences is participating in the KittyCats Advent Calendar this year. Like all the gifts in the advent calendar, the Essences (Day 16) gift is FREE and there is no need to join a group. You can visit the Essences main store to pick up your FREE gift from the KittyCats advent calendar, it’s on the wall to the right as you enter the shop. The FREE Essences advent gift is this an exclusive version of the Lynn skin. This gift includes a mesh head applier for Catwa, and an Omega applier that will work for mesh heads and bodies in the medium01 tone. The full release of this pretty face will be available soon! Don’t forget to pickup past group gifts while you’re at Essences, and you can of course pick up the current and previous KittyCats Advent Calendar gifts.

Spirit of ChristmasThe above outfit, including the legwarmers is the end-all beat-all of Christmas sweater outfits! This is the most recent group gift (not an advent gift) at !gO!. All group members can pick up this whimsical gift by clicking the gift vendor on the wall behind the desk at the !gO! main store. The outfit is fully mesh and can be worn with or without the legwarmers. In the package you’ll find a specific fit for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Slink Hourglass, and Standard mesh sizes. You will need to be in the !gO! in world group for this gift, which has a one time join fee of just 50 lindens. Also, don’t forget to pick up the !gO! advent gift for today, there’s a male advent gift and a female advent gift for each day.

Got Your Gowns Right Here!

One of my Second Life passions is Roleplay. And one of my favorite characters is my glass sidhe fey (who’s name is Astrid of course!). She’s a bit of a vain thing… like most fey of course, and loves to look beautiful. So when I discovered that The White Armory was hosting an Advent Calendar I had to check it out, and I was not disappointed!

Like many of the other calendars, you can pick up a gift for each of the 24 days which count down the holiday. For this calendar, no group is required, the doors don’t ‘close’, and you can pick up each of the past gifts. Just pay 0L to receive the gown for each day FREE!

Got Your Gowns Right Here 1

This FREE gown called Ice Flower by The White Armory is exactly the kind of gown my fey character would wear! It was behind door number 11 on the advent calendar in case you were wondering.

It is fully mesh in all the standard sizes to fit either system or mesh bodies with added flexi pieces (the flowers and a few nice touches around the bottom of the skirt to add ‘flow’ to the gown). The gloves are system so I was unable to wear them with my slink hands, but the gown was still drop dead gorgeous even without the gloves, so I wasn’t worried a bit!

Got Your Gowns Right Here 3

This FREE summery little dress by The White Armory was behind advent door number 8 is called Summer Breeze (of course!), and is perfect for picnics in the park, Sunday walks, ladies in waiting, and much much more! It is a fully mesh dress in all the standard sizes with a few small flexi pieces which attach to the skirt at bottom to add flair and flow, so this dress will work perfectly for both system and mesh bodies.

Got Your Gowns Right Here 2

This FREE gown is the gift for Day 2 on the advent calendar and is from The White Armory‘s Birthstone Collection, called Sublime Spirit Birthstone Gown December. It is perfect if you are still rocking your system body, and though it does not feature any mesh parts, the flexi layers are so well crafted that it falls and flows perfectly to make for a gorgeous ball gown or roleplay gown fit for a princess or elven queen, (or a vain fey like Astrid!).

Got Your Gowns Right Here 4

This FREE White Armory gown was behind door number 6 and is aptly called “She’s So Dangerous” and actually has several options (not all are shown). While it works as a gown with a flexi skirt, it also has a pants option as well. The pants option is mesh as is the top in all the standard sizes, so if you are looking for an outfit that will work for a system body OR your mesh body this one will fit either one!

What I love about this outfit is the versatility. It is literally 3 outfits in one package… with two different dress options and one pant-suit option, and can pass for medieval… or is just ‘modern’ enough to fly for sci-fi!
