Fame

Fame

Fame what you like is in the limo
Fame what you get is no tomorrow
Fame what you need you have to borrow

-Fame by David Bowie

Sometimes a girl just needs to feel a bit high fashion.

When I saw this dress by AtaMe at the Halloween Shop & Hop, I just knew I had to get it and wear it in a photo.  The lines have such *movement* that it was begging to be photographed!  Oh did I mention that it is one of the absolutely free gifts that you can get at Shop and Hop?  No group required!  I seriously fell in love with this entire look!  It comes with a HUD allowing you to change metals and colors on the dress.  It fits:

  • Maitreya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy

For some reason too this dress made the song “Fame” pop into my head.  Originally by David Bowie, but I love the more upbeat version done by Duran Duran.  My Mom used to *love* David Bowie (yeah she was cool!), so she might argue with me on that point.  Gosh I miss her. (by the way, not to be confused with the Irene Cara song Fame that I sang in a show when I was a teenager, that’s a whole ‘nother song!)

But I digress.  This photo makes me wish I had a fancy ultra modern house and some fancy couches I could hang this photo up on the wall over.  I do have a cute sl house, but it has very little wall space and while it is rather modern-ish, it is also very cabin-ish, so not the right look for my photo.  If I hadn’t just got this house recently I might go hunting for one to match the picture because well, as Aline also knows, one can never have enough houses!  Nor reasons to get houses.  😉

I better stop thinking before I go looking at houses.  But it might be too late to stop that part!

Fame, Fame, Fame, Fame, Fame……
What’s your name?

Sometimes, you just *gotta* blog something.  The wings on this outfit sold me, I tried them on and said “woah!” out loud.  Sold.  Must blog.  Sometimes too you can see the end photo in your head, sometimes you can get there and sometimes you can’t, but when you are inspired, there is always a vision.  I saw my vision and got to create it this time, so I am grateful and blessed.

and I love anything with fingerless gloves.  😛  Just by the way.

So this awesome getup is another of those awesome free goodies at the Halloween Shop & Hop going on now and lasting until the end of the month.  This is courtesy of Alter, which is a new to me designer (I’m discovering so many amazing designers lately!  It’s such a delight!).

Honestly, you are gonna be unpacking for agessssss once you go to the shop & Hop (as usual!), I even wrote down a few places I want to go back to once I have some more lindens.  There are also a few gift cards as gifties.

I’ve got one more Shop & Hop showcase coming up for you, so hold tight.  Then it’s back to the spooky!

Busted!

Autumn Outing

So a few of us Fab Free sisters got together yesterday for a walk through a hilly forest to check out some of the beautiful fall foliage that is happening up in some higher elevations.  Just yours truly and group of rowdy redheads! This photo looks like I caught them all in the act of some sort of trouble.  Busted!  hee hee From left to right behind me:

Cre “Such goings on are just below me!”

Juli “It wasn’t me!”

Caroline “What was it were we supposed to have been doing?”

We grabbed this selfie up at the top of the highest point just before we headed back.  The air smelled so sweet and we had a lot of fun.  Caroline even packed a nice lunch for us all, just a really great time!  It’s tough for us all to coordinate our schedules but its awesome when we can get together and do something fun, and of course bring you guys a bunch of freebies and deals while we are at it!  You can see what we are wearing below.

The pose is a free gift from DenDen Poses, and its such a cute pose!  The group is also free to join so head on down there and grab this, it will make for some fun photos with your own group of friends or family or whomever, and as I mentioned its totally free!

Happy Almost Autumn (though I’d rather hang on to summer, this girl is cold already!)

How Now Spotted Cow!

Mooh! Sept GG Cow onesie

When I was a child I played in the shade of a large tree. On the other side of the fence was a pasture with several cows. They loved to hang out in the shade too.

Simpler Times

Now that I have managed to survive the destruction wrought by Hurricane Ida (btw, it’s my name in RL), I wanted to get back to simpler times. Unfortunately, the reality of simpler times went all the way back  to the pre-electricity era! God bless the thousands of linemen and power company workers trying to put our grid back together!

Another Great Mooh! Group Gift

I was thrilled when I saw the latest group gift at Mooh! I mean, how can you NOT love a cow onesie?? It fits today’s mood & vibe perfectly.

The all-in-one outfit (sans the shoes) comes with a HUD that gives an option for udders or not. You can also change the color on the base of the wedge sneakers. And if wings are your thing you’ll be happy; a pair is included.

Everything you need to know about the Mooh! group:

Group Member Benefits:
– Monthly 150L gift card

Mooingly yours,

Cre

Just a Hippie Girl, in a Hippie World

coming soon

I am a sucker for anything artsy and bohemian… or pink.  I’m like a bohemian version of Elle Woods (Legally Blonde).  Ok I’m not *like* a bohemian version of Elle Woods, that’s basically what I actually am, right down to a rescue Chi. (I don’t dress him in pink however, he is really a daddy’s boy)

Today is a bohemian sort of day, it’s warm, a bit humid, breezy.  So I stopped at this cute food truck to grab a cold drink and it came with a slice of watermelon!  So refreshing!  I really needed a walk someplace quiet, I’ve been all over the place doing the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt!  It was so much work to get set up, but now I am enjoying the fruits of all that labor (not watermelon!  lol).  I hope you guys are too!

While I took my stroll, I put on this cute top I got in the hunt thanks to The Bold Llama.  She has so many fun tank tops, I just love her shop. (I’m a sucker too for shirts that say stuff, and the crazier/funner (it’s a word!!!!  lol!) the better!)  This was only 3L in the hunt and it fits:

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

The hunt runs until July 22, but leave yourself plenty of time to hunt, there are lots of gorgeous items to be found!

OK gang, stay cool out there!

Something Blue

Something Blue

Heyya Fab Readers! Do y’all remember that dress a few years back that was going around FaceBook that was either blue or gold? Everyone saw the colors a little different?  That’s what this cute mini from LUXE Paris reminds me of.  The name of the dress is “Blueberry”. But I see it as more grey than blue.  Kind of a steel grey.

Anyway, whatever color it is… blue, grey or somewhere inbetween, I really love the classic look of this dress. I’d wear it to a nice reception or party and know I was turning heads. So can you if you join the Second Life Frees and Offers free group and head over to LUXE Paris and pick it up.  While you’re there, look around the store. There are several free gifts scattered around that need no group to claim.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Hey FabFree! This week is just flying by! before you know it, it’ll be Friday and time for weekend fun. But before all that, I have some fun casual but put together looks to show off for you. It’s always fun to dress up or dress wild here on the Grid. But I always find myself drawn to some of the more subtle “everyday” outfits. Maybe I’m just a little boring…

Anyway… I found this super cute sweater over at The Annex on their Teleport HUB gift board. Which, of course means it’s free to us Teleport Hub group members! And it’s not just this delicious cobalt blue… it’s a whole fatpack! That’s twelve colors to choose from. You’re bound to find one or two colors to love. The Teleport HUB group is a measly little ten Lindens to join and that gets you access to hundreds of free gifts all over the Grid.

Sparkle and Shine!

Hey fab gang!

I’ve got one more for you from Shop & Hop Valentine’s edition, mainly because I couldn’t resist sharing with you this absolutely *stunning* gown from Son!a-Edge.  I truly feel like royalty when I wear this, sort of an ethereal kind of queen!  This dress literally reflects the light and has some magic of it’s own that gives it a sort of iridescent glimmer (I won’t spoil those little extras here for you, you will have to go get one of your own!  But I will spill the beans and say it comes with a materials HUD!)  The photo above is straight out of sl, no filters (just some film grain, and a crop!) at all, so this is seeing the dress do it’s own thing!  Here’s another photo, closer up so you can see some of the details:

athena_006

Again, you can see the sun reflecting on the right hand side of the dress.  well, sl sun, you know.  lol  And you do have to have your graphics set to advanced lighting, but so well worth it.  Stunning stunning stunning!!  Again, only film grain and cropping for this pic, no filters, nothing fancy done by me.  The dress stands for itself!

Now let me stop drooling for a moment and give you the specifics!  This dress is a free gift at Shop & Hop (runs until 2.17), no group necessary!  It fits the following sizes:

  • Freya Perky
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Maitreya Petite

I think with this I have found my outfit for any Valentine’s day dancing I may get to do.  😉  It will look amazing in those couples pics!

Stay safe and magical gang!
