Summer breeze makes me feel fine

Summer breeze makes me feel fine

Hey y’all! I fear that my favorite season might really be coming to an end. Luckily, I found the perfect little outfit to wear while I enjoy every last speck of Summer, before mean old Autumn shows up and invites his even worse pal Winter along.

Lilo

Belle Epoque has put out a new free group gift and it is seriously fabulous. All of the little details make it stand out from the crowd, like the adorable little ruffles and some really great lacing on the back of the top…and other details that I don’t know the names for because I don’t know how to fashion. But they’re really cute, see? It comes in one size, which is not labeled but which fits my Maitreya body perfectly. The Belle Epoque group is 10L to join and is it worth it? You know it! Besides this, there are a handful of other must-have gifts on the wall in the store.

Here comes the sun

Here comes the sun

Oooooh FabFree, it’s been quite the weekend in RL. It poured down rain for 4 solid days, I’ve been cooped up with two stir crazy tiny people, there was a leak in my ceiling (but luckily it was just a vent leaking and not the roof), and to top it all off I have the worst cold ever. I think I might be dying. So if this is my last post, it was nice knowing you. RL me has been just fine at handling everything although SL me has been in a bit of a mood for entirely different reasons…I’ll let the facial expression speak for itself. But things have to look up sometime, right? Here’s hoping that the sun really is coming out!

On9 turns my mood around!

I’ve been neglecting my shopping lately but when I saw on Seraphim that this is a “special gift round” of On9 I hopped on over to have a look. Almost every designer has a free gift out and there is no group required! I’m wearing two of them today. I got my fun layerfull (yup, that’s a word now) dress free from ArisArisB&W. It come with a HUD for 4 cute pattern options and in sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

I thought this necklace went perfectly with the dress. It is the free gift at On9 from EXiiA.

I hope that you’ve had a better weekend than me, and that you have a fantastic week!

Pleasure comes in all disguises

Pleasure comes in all disguises

Hi there. I was just admiring my new shoes. Aren’t they great? I’ve got some other things to tell you about too. Two of them are free with no group join or anything required, and the last is a free gift for a free group!

The pose sets the mood

Poses are too often overlooked and always very important. I’ll stay off of my soap box for now, but it’s a sentiment that I’ve expressed before and I think it’s extra true in this case. The [west end] mainstore has moved, so to celebrate there is a free pack of poses out in the new store. They’re all cool, movement filled poses like this one. It includes 6 poses – 3 separate poses and their mirrors and will only be out for a very limited time.

But the shoes matter too

These shoes are a free gift at Ricielli at the Cosmopolitan location and they can be yours just for showing up. There is a gift bag at the store up on a shelf. Click the bag, buy it for 0L, and watch the magic happen…the magic being free shoes with no strings attached. They come in sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Okay, the whole mess is important

Obviously, the undies I’m wearing are important too for modesty reasons…if I can even use the word modesty in a description of this particular picture. I got the ones that I’m wearing here from Elegance Boutique. They come with a color HUD so you can make them match pretty much anything that your heart desires, along with a few pattern options if you’re feeling sassy. To get them, I just joined the free Elegance Boutique group and than click on the vendor at the Cosmopolitan location to get my free gift. In addition to the HUD, it includes the panties sized for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Miatreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique

Amber is the color of your energy

Amber is the color of your energy

Hey FabFree. I’m just hanging out, enjoying the view. Oh and wearing new, pretty, free things of course!

Short Hair

My hair is the latest free group gift from Fabia. The gift is a fatpack of hair that comes with a really great hairstyle HUD as well! You can choose to have the hair pushed behind one ear, the other ear, or neither ear. Options for days! Fabia is 100L to join if you’re not already in the group and totes worth it! There are some previous group gifts still out in the store as well. I just activated my group tag and clicked the vendor picture in the store and free hair was all miiiiiiine.

Unzipped Shorts

I’m not typically a fan of the half opened shorts look – “Zip up your pants! We’re trying to live in a society here! And get off my lawn!” But in this case I’ll make an exception because these are super cute and really well done. Yes, that’s all that it takes for me to change my mind. They are a free group gift from Un!q for the ShopaholicSL group, which is free to join. The shorts come sized for:

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Venus

While you’re there picking up the shorts be sure to check out the gifts for other groups as well, including the Un!q store group.

And that’s all I have to show you today. Thanks for stopping by!

Heaven let your light shine down

Heaven let your light shine down

Good morning, FabFree! I’ve had a 90s alternative station streaming on Amazon Music most of the morning. I really need to do that more often, all of the songs are sooooo good. Does that make me old? Don’t answer that. I mean, I was in middle school or high school when I listened to most of this music, but I suppose that doesn’t really make a difference. Well either way, it’s been a lovely morning…good music and a bikini to show you…both are things that make me happy!

The bikini is not just adorable, it’s also FREE. It is the current group gift at M*Motion and the group is free to join. There are lots of cute little details like the ties on the sides and little beads at the bottom of the strings and along the middle of the top that make it just perfect. The free gift is this pretty striped pattern in 3 sizes: Lara, Physique, and Isis.

Queen of the broken hearts

Queen of the broken hearts

So tomorrow is the last day of the Cart Sale at The Wash. But don’t panic, you still have the rest of today and tomorrow to go wander around and buy as many 10L things as possible. And don’t forget to grab the freebies that are available at many of the carts as well. I’m playing my favorite game – “how many free/discounted items can Allison wear at once?” It’s a super fun game because I always win! Today I’ve managed to show you three more cart sale items. Each one will only set you back 10L.

inSanity

My lipstain is made for Genus heads but fits fine on my Catwa head as well. There are 7 different shades available, all as Omega appliers. They’re all really nice, wearable shades.

Vicarious Youth

This cute layered top is from Vicarious Youth. I love the graphic and there are a few others to choose from as well. There are no fitted sizes, just 5 classic sizes L-XXS but I had no trouble wearing it with a few alpha cuts.

Sin Original

And then there are these sweet jeans. they come with a HUD so you can change them to 5 different patterns/solid colors. There are also sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Here we are now, entertain us

Here we are now, entertain us

Hi! I went a little overboard on the group gifts in this post. I was browsing through my inventory and one thing led to another and they all ended up on at the same time. I’m enjoying the vibe though, it’s very 90s punk rock and had me singing Nirvana to myself.

Versatile Dress

My dress is from Avale. It’s a really great little black dress that is a necessity in every inventory. This dress would be great dressed up but clearly it’s also very versatile because I did this kinda punk thing with it and I think it works beautifully for that too. To get the dress I just tped over to Avale, joined the free group, and clicked on the picture of a present to get my free group gift. It comes in sizes for:

  • Freya Perky
  • Hourglass
  • Isis Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • TMP

Punk Staple

I can’t believe how well made and perfect this plaid shirt is that I’m wearing tied around my waist. Coco gives out the best group gifts and if you don’t believe me just get an eyeful of the huge wall of past gifts available in the store. This newest free group gift can be snatched up as well by joining the free group and it includes sizes for Freya, HG, Isis, MT and Slink.

But first let me take a selfie

The cell phone that I’m using comes with 6 poses – 3 male and 3 female. I love a good selfie pose, don’t you? Both the phone and the poses are free group gifts for the Dubai Event VIP group. My link will take you to the group profile. Just join the group (it’s free) and check the past notices for the box. The gift is there waiting for you.

Be still my love

Be still my love

Happy Friday! I have some exciting skin news for you today. The free gift for September is out a day early at 7 Deadly Skins! And she’s preeeeeetty, as is always the case with 7DS skins.

Mellia

7 Deadly Skins is a great group to be in because we get free group gifts every month (for both guys and girls) as well as info on all of the great sales and promos that they are always having. This is a paid group, but right now it is only 25L to join! I forget what it usually is, I just know that it’s cheaper right now but just for the rest of this month – so I’m assuming that means today only. I’m wearing Mellia, the free September group gift. It comes with Omega appliers in 4 skin tones.

City Heat

My outfit is by Dark Water Designs. It is 10L at The Wash during the Cart Sale. There are a few other patterns available but I am wearing teal paisley today. The top and skirt are separate pieces and each comes sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Phyisique
  • Venus

The skirt is a tight little mini. You can just see where it ends at the edge of my weirdly cropped photo. There is less than a week left of the cart sale, and lots of bargains to be had. You don’t want to miss this!

Sleeping to dream about you

Sleeping to dream about you

No, this isn’t a fall post. It’s still summer. It will be summer forever in SL. Forever! …But I guess this is kind of a fall post. I can’t help it, when designers make such lovely autumn themed things! I’ve got lots of great things to tell you about today, including a super cute group gift and some items from the cart sale!

No shoes!

I love cute little foot accessories like this. That way I can kind of sort of appear fully dressed, but still not be wearing shoes! Win-win. Also, they’re so pretty! I got the foot jewels that I’m wearing here as a free group gift from KC Couture. They come rigged for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink and with a HUD so they can be customized. There are LOTS of color options for the cords and tassels and then a handful of metallic tones for the chain. The KC group is only 25L to join and there is a wall in the store with a bunch of group gifts that are all really nice. I really should wear them more often, if only I could be bothered to wear shoes…

Short Dress

How could this possibly be a fall post if I’m not wearing shoes or any article of clothing past my thighs? My fabulous sweater dress is by JellyRoll and I got it for 10L from the cart sale at The Wash. There are 8 autumn hues to choose from and each is 10L. It comes sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Mara
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus
  • 5 classic sizes, XXS-L

Okay fine, the bench is definitely fall…

I’m not much of a decor blogger so I’m not sure how much justice I’ve done this bench, but it’s really cute! It is another find at The Wash, this time from Tylar’s Treasures, and priced at just 10L for the cart sale. The pose that I’m using did not come with it, the only poses included are couples poses and since it’s just me I obviously couldn’t use those. There are brightly colored autumn leaves scattered about on the ground in front of it and on the sides and I just love the arbor across the top.

Great stuff, right? Totally worth embracing fall. ❤
