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.

Spring Pink

Spring Pink

Hey FabFree! I know it’s just a bit early, but S@bbia has me thinking about Spring. Their latest Group Gift is something I’d totally wear in the real world and it’d be perfect for Spring. You know those days that are kinda warm but still a little breezy?  Well, I’d wear it outside until allergies drove me back inside.

The ‘Hoodie Sweater and Floral Skirt’ are two separate pieces making them a valuable addition to any closet. The Hoodie is gonna look so cute with jeans as well as it’s skirt. My cute pink sneaks are a group gift as well. The “laceless slip on sneakers’ are just the perfect pink to go with my new Spring gear.  As with all Group Gifts, they may not stick around long so hurry over to S@bbia and pick ’em up!

More Love Themed Goodies!

Snapshot_039

Hey there fab fam!

Back today with an adorable love themed spring dress from DeVita.  Like Aline, I believe love themed items can be rocked the entire year!  Never mind that pink and purple and magenta are some of my favorite colors!  So who needs an excuse!  It’s like the “You can’t wear white after Labor day”, you know where that stems from?  It is from back in Victorian times and that applied because what color you wore showed whether you were married or single.  So unless you are looking for a Victorian suitor, I don’t think that really applies anymore, even though some people try to make it stick and sound like they know something.  I say bah!  If it makes you feel good, wear it whenever you want!  Life is short!  Live and enjoy!

Anyhoo…. This dress is a free group gift and the group costs just 5L to join!  It comes in

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Legacy
  • Legacy Perky
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Happy shopping!!!

See you all next time when I bring you a gorgeous dress you can get in a hunt!

Girl’s Night Out

Snapshot_011

Hey fab fam!

Hope you are staying toasty in all the snow that seems to be nearly everywhere right now!  (except Florida, where I wish I was.  lol)

Since I am watching it snow I thought it a good time to have a nice sl night out, I brought my sweet shih tzu Tara with me (she is named after a real life shih tzu I had and lost a few years ago and still dearly miss, but real life Tara (aka Miss Tee) was black and white), while she and I are both introverts, we love a little adventure, so off we go!

I found this adorable sweater at Poeme.  It is their group gift for February/March and their group is only 1L to join!  The pants are by WellMade and I found those over at the Free Dove, and they were well… free! (Natch!)  Aline has also highlighted them here.  They really are a great pair of pants and you can’t beat the price!

The sweater comes in:

  • TMP
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Fitmesh – xs-xl

The pants come in:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

They also come with a HUD that lets you choose between black or red.  All things perfect for a casual/dressy-ish night out with my Tara girl.

Until next time fam, when I share with you a really cute new dress for spring!

Keep on, keepin’ on!

Fashion Forward

Snapshot_022

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.”

Gianni Versace

Hello again my fab free fam!

How do you decide what to wear?  Do you try to fit in and wear things that other people wear, or approve of, or do you do your own thing?  Do you dress according to mood?  Or maybe you have a system that helps you decide?

Me, I’ve always done my own thing, both in sl and rl.  It hasn’t always been the easiest to deal with (rl!) but I don’t have the ability to be anything but myself.  I’m very VERY bad at faking it.  What you see is what you get folks!  Now, in sl, we have a LOT more fashion choices than in rl.  I mean gosh I could NEVER fit all my sl clothing into my rl closet!  Nor would it all look as stunning on me as it does on my lovely sl avatar.  However, my choices are the same.  As I’ve said before, I feel like a sort of bohemian version of Elle Woods (Legally Blonde), while I was a tomboy most of my life and still mostly am, there is that part of me that lonnnnggggssssss to be girly but isn’t quite sure how to do it!  lol  I lost my mom at an early age and had no other female role models, so I became sort of a guys girl.   Many of my closest rl friends are guys and I find them easier to hang with than other girls, for the most part.  I’m not sure I ever properly learned how to “girl”.  lol  But I digress!  (I go off on side tangents, sorry  lol) My choices in both worlds reflect the bohemian, artsy, PINK-ishness, quirky soul that I am.  I don’t care if its in style, if I love it, I wear it.  Also unicorns.  anything & everything with unicorns.

Respond in comments and tell me what fashion inspires in you and what you love to choose!

As you can see, today I have chosen an adorable complete outfit from Bad Rabbit.  It was a free gift with no group required.  This outfit comes with everything you see here, dress and matching boots.  It has a HUD that gives 5 texture choices for the dress and five matching choices for the boots.  There was a pink choice for it but I chose blue cause I don’t want y’all to get crazy at me!  lol!

The dress comes in:

  • Tonic – Minimizer, Fine, Curvy
  • Star
  • Hourglass
  • Signature
  • Maitreya & Maitreya Petite
  • Kupra – Low, Original, Bimbo
  • Ebpdy – Classic, Curvy
  • Belleza – Isis, Freya
  • Altamura

The boots come in:

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Freya

Since this got to be a rather long-ish post (!!), I shall wrap up here and see you next time lovelies, when I show you a great look for a casual night out!

Cheers to us saving the world, one outfit at a time,

❤ Arielle

Suited

Suited

Good afternoon, Fab Readers. My post today is going to interest our newer members of the Grid because the more experienced among us have surely already taken full advantage of my finds today. I’m speaking of the 1L Shop at Gabriel. Of course, I am a frequent shopper at Gabriel… it’s something abut the name….  At any rate, I wandered to the back of the main store today to see the newly added 50% Discount area. Excellent deals there, by the way… just none I can show on here for75L or less. However, the 1L shop is a delight. The stock is clearly being rotated through and most of what I found was completely new on the 1L shelves.  Like this stunning pinstripe suit I picked out. I do love a good suit. I’ve said it before : Boys have swagger, Men have character… Gentlemen have style.

Also, before I go, I want to offer a hearty welcome to Mr. Korday. Its good to have another gentleman in the mix. Cheers!

Sizes Included

  • One size + Alpha if needed

I call to you great spirit of water
summon the serpent and make his power mine
I bow to the winds and the power of fire
Bring to me, my hearts desire!
Abracadabra, I will create as I speak!

Hey fab gang!

A little bit of magic for your Valentine’s day.  Did you know the word abracadabra is a very powerful word, even though it gets tossed around frivolously (there’s a word I don’t get to use often enough!).  Yup.  It is Arabic for “I will create as I speak”.   This cute outfit from Ewa Boutique made me feel very tribal and magical, so I thought it was time for a wee bit of spell casting!  What keeps popping into my head though are Ursula’s (the sea witch from The Little Mermaid) spell…. “come winds of the Caspian sea!”  Not sure why!  lol

This outfit is a Fab Free gift so wear your tag and head to Ewa’s to scoop it up!  It fits:

  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

That goes for the whole outfit, top, skirt and shoes!  It also comes with a HUD that has five sets of colors to choose from.  Of course you can always be a rebel and mix and match!  I love the colors and combinations!

Time to whip up a new spell to find more inspiring goodies!  Until next time!

Incense & peppermints!
