Break Out the Sweaters

Break Out the Sweaters

Hi there, Fabulous Readers!  The other day in my post here, I shared a pretty floral dress that I picked up as a hunt prize over at The Free Dove.  While I was searching high and low for the hunt object, this cute sweater caught my eye.  I don’t know about where you are in the world, but the days around me are getting a bit on the chilly side, so I was happy to add a cozy item to my wardrobe (even if it is just in SL).

It’s Getting to Be Sweater Weather

I’ve been avoiding it as long as I could, but it is definitely time to start dressing for the season.  Baby Monkey has you covered if you are looking to expand your fall collection, and best of all, their gift is completely free for members of The Free Dove group (which is free to join).  The Striped Sweater will keep you toasty warm with its mock turtleneck, long sleeves, and generous length.  I love how it is not too bulky and still shows off your curves.  If blue is not your cup of tea, you can change the look with 7 other knitted textures using the included HUD.  Although I chose not to wear them for my picture, the folder also includes striped leggings, a suede mini, and Guilia boots, so you will have a complete outfit (including footwear) – all for a grand total of zero lindens!

Mesh Body Compatibility

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique

Until my next post,

Hey FabFree, happy Monday. Well the temps and the snow started falling here in my Real world. So I guess I’ve had being cozy and warm and comfortable on the brain. So when I got on the Grid today, I just wanted a snuggley sweater, a purring kitty and a good book.

I had the book in my inventory and Lola’s Closet provided the sweater. This is the ‘Merry Christmas’ sweater and it’s the current free gift for Lola’s Closet Group members. This lovely sweater is not just free to the members but the Group itself is free to join. Plus there are past gifts and special sales available in the shop. So if you need to warm up head down and pick it up.

A Lone Subway Car

A Lone Subway CarHow’s it going, Fab Free? I have started to leave the house a little bit more now that my country’s restrictions have loosened a bit. However, every time I take the subway there is almost no one on it! I guess I’m riding this subway train solo today. At least I can do it in style thanks to the free gifts I got through the Stay at Home Club during quarantine!

The Goods

The cute dress and heels I have on are current gifts at M&M style and Baby Monkey for the Stay at Home club. Just head over to their stores, find their stay at home club vendor and enjoy these precious finds! The dress comes in one pattern/ texture, but for these Sativa Plats heels you can change the shoes to several shades of green.
Stay safe, Fab Free!

Snow Day like Today

Snow Day like Today

Hey FabFree! Are you getting all that Christmas shopping done? I thought I was caught up then wham… we get the Shop and Hop! So… MANY… Free Gifts!

Hoppin’ an’ Shoppin’

Like this lovely new hair from Magika! This is “Let it Snow” and you can pick it up for free at the Magika booth at Shop and Hop. The hair style comes in three sizes and the HUD is a full Fatpack! Merry Christmas, indeed.

My cozy scarf is also a free gift at Shop and Hop. This is Aphorism’s unisex gift ‘Winter Scarf’. It also comes with a HUD to change the scarf from solid to strips and to change or hide the fringe.

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis

Great balls of snow

I also hopped over to the SOS Winter Faire where I found this cute hand painted snowball free from Bad Kats. A few booths have gifts and most have an exclusive item for the Fair.

The Survivors of Suicide group in Second Life has grown by leaps and bounds and is, in fact , the longest running mental health group on the Grid. The Holidays are often difficult times for people and reaching out is never easy. But knowing someone is ready to talk or just listen can make the difference to someone in need.  So, have fun shopping the Fair and know the moneys raised from the raffle and donations go to SOS helping with real recovery.

And a personal note… if you are feeling blue this holiday season… reach out. There are so many people ready and willing to help.

You are loved and needed.

Fine Fall Friends

Fall Friends
Happy Weekend, FabFree Folks! Don’t you love that Fall is really here? Even way down here in South Texas, we’re seeing colors in the trees and it’s been wonderfully cool. This is that picture perfect ‘Back To School” weather isn’t it?

On the gO

!gO has the perfect school girl or college girl outfit in the Adela Gatcha over at the Gacha Garden. I am in love with the soft fuzzy sweater and the prim and proper neck scarf. At only 75L perplay I was ready to play for along time. But I was lucky enough to pull both of the rares in just a couple of plays! The rare includes the armful of books with a scripted hold pose. Other than that, the commons are just as nice as the rares. Something I really appreciate. But since I had two cute looks… I called Aline to come help me out. So here we are reliving our college days…. if we had lived in Europe… and had loads of private school money … 😉

Sizes Included ( Sweater, Skirt and Scarf)

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

Curls for Days

As usual, many of the venders at the Gacha Garden have put out free gifts for the free Gimme Gacha group. My luxurious new locks are the gift from Analog Dog.,  This is “Mali” and you get the full color fatpack when you pick up the gift. There is also a styling HUD to change how the hair lies on your shoulders. The curls are just gorgeous and with every color under the rainbow, I bet you’ll find one that’s perfect for you.

Time Keeps on Slippin’, Slippin’, Slippin’ Into the Future

Bonjour

Bonjour, Fabulouses!  Real life has been super hectic lately.  It seems like it was just Friday and now all of a sudden it’s Wednesday!  Time is flying by.  I hope your week is going well.  Speaking of flying, I’m pedaling out to do some more hunting, but wanted to quickly share this outfit with you.  The pieces are separates, but to my eyes, they look like they were made to go together.  The best part is, my clothes only cost one little Linden dollar!

Think Pink

This adorable Bimi halter-style top in a bright raspberry hue is a free gift from Baby Monkey for members of Fabulously Free in SL.  Featuring a high neckline and and a low cut back, this little number is ideal for those sultry late spring days ahead.   I really like the folds in the fabric and the way it hugs your curves and allows you to soak up the sun.  It is designed for a variety of mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, teleport over to the shop, activate your Fab Free group tag, right click on the board and pay 1L, which will immediately be refunded to you along with the delivery of your gift.

Mesh Body Compatibility:

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

A Little Bit Boho

Ripley and I ventured along the trail of The Boho Hunt recently.  There are 34 stops along the way with prizes that cost 1 Linden dollar each.  Over at Horr Menswear, if you find the tiny white llama concealed in the shop, you can scoop up these cute little blue Monetta shorts for yourself.  They ride low on your hips and are packed with details such as rivets on the pockets and a bright pink wraparound belt, which coordinates beautifully with the Bimi crop top.  There’s something in this hunt prize for everyone, because versions for classic as well as mesh bodies are tucked inside the package.  The shorts are actually from Ambient Fashion, but they are hidden in Horr Menswear for the hunt.  The event runs until March 31, so you have plenty of time to do some sleuthing for yourself.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, L (includes alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine
  • TMP

Until my next post, happy hunting!
