A Rose is a Rose

A Rose is a Rose

Valentines may be over, but lots of the designers and shops on the Grid are still showing us the love! How you ask? By making their hunts last allll month. Like the “All you need is Love” Hunt. Of course, most the Valentine themed hunts feature hearts and kisses and cupids but among all the typical items I was lucky enough to find this gorgeous vintage roses printed mini dress from RR.

The Elvia dress is what I call the perfect mini dress. Short enough to be sexy but my …ahem… behind isn’t falling out. Sometimes less is more, am I right? And just take a look at the details! The little zipper on the thigh and the perfect seams… This one is staying in my closet on a favorites tab.

The All you need is Love Hunt runs until February  28. But that’s coming quicker than you think… so go get your Hunt on!

Hunting Hearts

Hunting Hearts

As promised, I’m back this evening to talk about the sweet little Valentines Day Hunt going on over at Poeme! If you know me, you know I love Poeme’s shop and the owner/designer, Elysiane Sapphire, is an absolute delight. She has very generously offered the Hunt prizes in a “Transferable” form so you can gift your sweetheart if you so desire. If that isn’t enough, she has also added a day to the Hunt to make sure we all have time to pick up these Valentines Day goodies.

I picked out the “Ruffle Me Up” dress in scarlet to show off as well as the “Love Me Red Choker” and the “Burning Love Tote”. But I picked up quite a few more things in the Hunt. Because you can never have too many plaid boots! Besides with everything only 15L this is one event that won’t wreck your pocketbook.

The Hunt now runs until February 15th so get over there and Hunt down some hearts!

Get Your Halo Dirty

Dirty Halo

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m so ready for the weekend, and I’m feeling sweet and sinister in this pastel look. I hope you have fun with these pretty playful group gifts from Dappa and Safira I have to share with you. Let’s get to it!

Dappa

Watercolor style tattoos always look so delicate and lovely to me. I even like the pastel blues and purples of this free group gift tattoo from Dappa. The tattoo comes in BOM layers and appliers (with a fresh and a faded option) for most mesh bodies. Also, the Dappa group is free to join.

Appliers/Layers Included: Maitreya Applier, Legacy Applier, Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Signature Applier, BOM Layers

Safira

If you ask me it doesn’t need to be October for you to wear skeletons, or in this case skeleton hands! This cute bodysuit is the latest group gift at Safira. I really like that this bodysuit has a version meant to be worn with pants, and one meant to be worn by itself. This free group gift also has a color change hud with quite a few solid color choices, and some metal options for the little heart-shaped buttons. The Safira group has a join fee of 50 linden, and there is an entire wall of group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis), MeshBody Legacy

Sparkle and Shine

Sparkle and Shine

Hey FabFree Folks!  So, after I did the pictures for yesterday’s blog, I wandered around for the rest of the day in my fabulous gown. It was just like the old days back when I first joined the Grid… all ballgowns all the time! Which got me thinking it might be fun to do a few days worth of gowns. Cause… why not?

One of the oldest designers for gorgeous evening wear is Tiffany Design. And they did not disappoint. I found several lovely gowns up on their “No group needed” wall. Tiffany Designs has two groups: one paid and one free. Both groups have different gifts and lucky chairs available. But there is a small selection of no group needed gifts! You’ll be asked to pay 1L but it’s immediately refunded.

This is the Sia Glitter Mesh gown and you can find it on that no group needed selection. It’s a beautifully made dress that will make you the star of any show! 

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh – XXS – L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

Not Your Valentine

Not Your Valentine

Alright, I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I am anti-Valentines Day, but it’s not my favorite. While I love the idea, and all the romantic sentiments, I can’t help but dislike how manufactured it can feel. Commercialism, am I right?! That said, the new group gift at POUT! spoke to me. I also picked up a pretty fur coat by Entice super inexpensively on the Marketplace. Keep reading for more detail

POUT! 

I’ve always loved makeup, not as a necessity but rather as a fun even artful form of self expression. This Valentine-ish eye makeup look is a free group gift from POUT!. The gift comes in appliers and BOM layers in the red color shown. The POUT! group is free to join, and there are several previous group gifts still available.

Appliers and BOM Layers Included: Catwa (Applier,BOM), Genus (Applier, BOM), Lelutka Evo HD Applier

Entice

Second Life is the one place I feel good about wearing a fur coat. I happen to think this one by Entice looks amazing on. The textures are fantastic. I picked this one up for 75 linden on the Marketplace. There are several other colors available also, at 75 linden each. Also, this coat does work for mesh and classic avatars!

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, TMP, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Fitmesh + Alpha Layer

A little freedom

A little freedom

Hey FabFree, I hope your Wednesday is going awesome.  You know if it isn’t, I sympathize. I’ve had a weird couple of days myself. But you know what always helps? You guessed it Free stuff!!!  And what’s even better than free stuff? Fabulously Free free Group Gifts!

Like this simply gorgeous gown from Sweet Willows. I was on the FabFree chat when I went to pick up this gown and I think I may have pestered all the chatters with all my talk about what’s going on in the Sweet Willows shop! But there’s SO much! Special sales, gifts and even a 50% discount when you wear your FabFree Group tag!  Anyway, the Ivanka gown is the FabFree group gift and it’s just splendid. It comes with a HUD to change the color/patterns of the over dress (the black part) and the skirt and top (the white parts). The HUD has eight colors for each and it’s just endlessly mix and matchable!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

My other FabFree Gifty is the lovely snowflake choker from Chop Zuey.  The Silent Sweet Night choker comes with a HUD to change the color of the choker and the three beautiful snowflakes suspended on it. Eight colors, both with either silver or gold metals and eight gemstone colors await your creative control.

To join the free Fabulously Free Group just click the sign above the gift at any of our Fab Designers.

Oh hello there, and thank you as always for being here. I think it goes without saying that I’m feeling a bit devilish in my new dress from Shy Doll. The best part, it didn’t cost me a thing. For this post I’m excited to be sharing with you a limited time group gift at Shy Doll.

The Shy Doll group is free to join, and from now until Saturday January 23rd you can get a free 500 linden gift card with your group tag. If you ask me that’s one h-e-double hockey-sticks of a deal. Have fun, and happy shopping!

Blustery

Blustery

Heyya FabFree! I don’t know about you guys but it’s still pretty cold and snowy in my neck of the real life woods. In fact, I finally got to wear my super cute new snow boots today for the first time. ‘Cause when they talk about “lake effect snow” up here… they ain’t kidding around.  So I wanted to do a post with cold weather gear or boots or coats and SpectacledChic’s gacha “Better Days” at the Epiphany event is just the thing!

I was so lucky to get the Rare for this cozy set right off the bat. It’s always the way when I want a common ( I thought the common blouse was sooo pretty) I pull a Rare. But what the heck, the Rare is pretty cute too. The Rare coat and under shirt comes with a HUD for ten coat colors/patterns,  three colors for the buttons and eight colors for the undershirt.  The coat is a really nicely built item and had gorgeous details and textures. It also comes with the “hands in your pockets” pose and proper alpha built in.

There are eight colors for the rest of the gacha commons – a simple blouse, a solid colored skirt and a cute bucket type hat. There is also a second Rare in a plaid colored skirt.  All this for just 75L per play!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya

The Epiphany runs until February 12 so don’t miss out!
