Calling In Some Girl Squad Back Up

LadiesinBlack
Hey there Fabulous Readers! When I saw the new Fish For This:  I’m In The Black Dress 7 Seas Fishing Prize at Sn@tch, I knew I needed to call in some girl squad back up to show off the amazing gifts in this great set.  I put a call out to the FabFree Bloggeristas, and while Serena was away on business and Prudence was coughing up a lung in bed, I still had three others jump up to help me out!  From left to right in the photo, you’ll see Astrid, Aline, Kat and myself. (Thank you for your help, ladies!!)

Fish For This:  I’m In The Black Dress

This 22 piece set includes 6 mesh dresses, mesh top and skirt, boots, stockings, earrings, collar and even three different colours in a hairstyle (which Aline is displaying)!  There was so much to choose from in the set once it was complete that there was something to suit each of our individual personal styles.

What are we wearing from the Fishing Prize?

Astrid:

  • #9 Stockings Omega Hud
  • #10 Joy Mini Dress

Aline:

  • #1 Mesh Britney Collar White
  • #2 Jessie Crop Top Black
  • #3 Sunshine Skater Skirt Black
  • #9 Stockings Omega Hud
  • #17 Fishnet Top Omega Hud
  • #18 Morgan Hair Black

Kat:

  • #12 Roxie Tub Dress

Love:

  • #11 Moon Club Dress Black
  • #21 Black Dress Earring Silver LT
  • #22 Black Dress Earring Silver RT

The rod will cost you 100L to purchase, but it can be used multiple times after that.  No bait purchase is required at the Sn@tch 7Seas Fishing Pond.

Lady Luck

Flight_001

I’ve always wanted to head to Vegas and try my luck at the slots, not that it would be good for my wallet I’m sure! But I went out and got lucky on the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt with my hunt buddy and came up with a few hunt items and then headed to Pandora Resort for some sun and fun and that was almost as good 😉

Lucky Lady

This Lucky Lady tank top by Sassitude made me think of the Vegas Strip and all its lights and glamour. And that’s what got me dreamy about hitting it big at the casinos! Especially with the shirts logo and dice and the words on it! Either way, for only a little hunting time and 1L, you’re sure to hit it big with this shirt in your inventory! It’s a nice little addition as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt!

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Ocacin V1 & V2
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Physique
  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus

Top it off.

Every girl needs a hat or two in her inventory (and every guy for that matter as well). I picked up my hat from Tiar, also as part of the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt and only cost me 1 tiny linden. The hat is supposed to be the men’s gift inside the store (there was a nice ladies gift too), but I found the men’s hat to be nicely unisex and easily resizable to fit over my hair with just a tiny bit of editing. I thought it went well with my “Vegas look”. What do you think?

Happy high rolling and see you in Vegas! Even if only in Second Life!

A Fabulous New Year’s Eve!

A Fabulous New Year's Eve

The Fabulous Bloggers L to R: Aline Passiflora, Astrid de Manyet, Serena Snowfield, Love Trill, Prudence Rexroth, and Carson Caiben

Champagne and Confetti

It’s pretty hard to get all 6 of us together in the same place at the same time, but we somehow managed to do it this year for New Year’s Eve. Love brought the champagne, I brought the confetti and silly glasses, and as you can see, a fabulously good time was had by all. 😀

What brought us together was this super cute party pose by {NANTRA} Poses, which was sent out as a free gift to subscribers. The gift includes bento poses for 5 people, as well as confetti, three types of 2018 eyeglasses, and champagne flutes for everyone (but not the bottle Love is holding, sorry).

NOTE: Since the pose gift is only for 5 people, and we have 6, I pulled a pose from {NANTRA}’s 2015 NYE gift and popped it on the end. You can see Carson modeling this one on the right.

The Happy New Year Backdrop we’re standing in front of is a free gift from Serenity Style. No group required; just click the vendor and pay 0L.

Carson snapped the above photo before the fireworks began. 🙂

On behalf of all of us here at Fabulously Free in SL, we hope your New Year was a happy one. May 2018 bring you all the joy, happiness, and health you desire. ❤

Fab Free Designer Friday – 06/16/2017 – Marquesse Pret a Porter

MPP Exterior
Hello Fab Free’rs! It’s Friday, and this week I’m happy to share with you a shop that has both male and female clothing designs. This week’s Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Marquesse Pret a Porter. You’ll notice right away as you enter the shop that the store offers clothing for the ladies as well as gentlemen. There’s a wide range of clothing available at Marquesse Pret a Porter. I saw shoes along with casual and formal style clothing.

The circulation desk and wall of information are both in the same location, right as you enter the store. I love it when everything is easy to find and can be seen right away! Most of the shopping is on the main floor, however there are a few items upstairs as well.
MPP Gifts
The circulation desk area is also where you’ll find the Marquesse Pret a Porter group gifts, as well as several group gifts for other affiliated groups such as Fabulously Free in SL. First, the Marquesse Pret a Porter group has a one time join fee of 100 linden. You’ll find there are a few available group gifts located in a row just above the “Gift” marquee on the desk. The additional gifts require other specific group tags. For the exclusive Fab Free group gift, just wear your Fabulously Free in SL group tag and click the red and green present on the desk. You may recall seeing this gift in Astrid’s post “Waiting is Over-rated…” As always, the Fabulously Free in SL group is FREE to join. Oh! Also, before I forget, the Marquesse Pret a Porter group members also have group exclusive Midnight Madness boards and Lucky Chairs.
MPP MM Lucky Chairs
Located at the back of the store, Marquesse Pret a Porter group members can slap one or both Midnight Madness boards, and win prizes from the 5 Lucky Chairs. The MM Boards have one male gift and one female, while the Lucky Chairs have rotating gifts. Happy Shopping guys and gals!

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night

Stormy

It was a dark and stormy night…

No wait. That’s just the start of the latest novel I’ve been reading. Scratch that.

It was the eighth of October… another day of the Mens Only Hunt and another great find to put into my inventory. You won’t want to miss out on this outstanding mens leather jacket from Gabriel. It’s FREE other than the cost of your hunting time. Once you find the iconic beer, you’ll get this jacket in standard, Slink, and TMP fits, and the box also includes and alpha for standard avatars. I really like the zipper details and the asymmetrical collar.

I paired this jacket with some men’s jewelry I picked up at Chop Zuey. The men’s group gift there (the Gibraltar Necklace in silver) is top quality and resizable. Ladies you might like it too. The group is 350L to join but the gifts are top notch and frequently given, making the group well worth joining.

Easy To Warm Up To

Flamable

It’s getting colder and with the chill air moving in, I was pleased to score some men’s outerwear FREE that was a hot, hot deal. If you stop by Tori’s Stylez, you too can pick up the Tod Denim Hoodie Jacket in Black.

This is a mesh coat in all the standard sizes, which also includes a good alpha layer as well as a bonus system layer tank top if you want to use it (shown in the picture above as well). You’ll need to don your SL Frees & Offers Group tag to snag the gift, but the group is FREE to join, making this an item for your inventory that won’t cost you a single Linden. That is a deal easy to warm up to.

Just the Highlights

High Lights

For a limited time, Paisley Daisy has lowered their group join to only 10L so you can pick up their group gifts at a bargain. The August and September group gifts are both out. I’m showing you the pretty dress from August in the picture above and the September group gift is a sheer baby doll dress. The one pictured above is mesh in all the standard sizes and I felt it highlighted the last few days of nice weather… so it’s name was just perfect.

Today is also 25L Tuesday, and I was thrilled to discover beautiful shoes at Luas! These Dorothy shoes come in Slink or Maitreya fits in the box and you can get a choice of 8 colors for only 25L each. I picked up the ivory, but you may want to pick up something different… or one of each!

High Lights

I finished off my flowery look with a pretty necklace I found from Clever & Cool on the marketplace. This necklace was only 10L. When I first put it on, it had some serious bling, so I was skeptical, but then I discovered that I could turn that off by typing “bling off” into local chat and ta da! No more bling! It also allows for resizing and retexturing of the flowers into many different color choices besides the pink stones shown… so your 10 little Linden gets you a lot of necklace.

Urban Native

Urban Native

I’m enjoying the last few days of not quite cold weather as the fall days allow for walks through parks without jackets. It’s that perfect weather for shorts and a shirt and the breezes are lovely even with the turning leaves.

Even if I’m an urban native… I found the perfect shirt for my outing at… none other than Native Urban. Their group is FREE to join and they have out a FREE group gift for men that you won’t want to pass up. It is this outstanding banshee shirt that includes mesh sizes for all the major men’s mesh bodies including Slink, Adam, TMP, and Aesthetic. Since it is made for mesh bodies, there is no alpha included (just as a heads up) but with some fiddling an an alpha from your inventory you might be able to make this FREE shirt work with your system body if you are still using one.

Speaking Abstractly

Speaking Abstractly

Sapphire Teebrook was away for a while due to real life illness and so the Glitterati August and September group gifts were late in coming. To thank everyone for their patience and the many well wishes she got, there are now five new gifts out at the Glitterati main-store. Three of these gifts are free to all, no group required. Two are group tag required (the August and September group gifts).

The group is 100L to join but there are about 80 past group gifts to pick up, several of which have been blogged before [HERE] and [HERE] for example.

In the picture above, Astrid is wearing two of the free to all gifts — the Julia dress in abstract with the Joyce heels. You don’t need a group to pick these up, just buy them for 0L. The dress comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh for Maitreya and Belleza. I’m not sure how long they will be out, so be sure to hurry over and pick them up.
