Reveling in the Rustic

Reveling in the Rustic

I’m having a rustic moment here.  Well, as rustic as you can be in a pretty dress, heels and a flower crown, but work with me here!  I’m getting warm evening, sun going down, corn on the cob kinda vibes.  If you really think about it there are flowers in mason jars, and strings of lights hung over picnic tables – and not in the pretentious, fake way!   Well, maybe a little fake since it is Second Life, but you know….I’m going as pixel-authentic as I can!

La Belle Epoque

To channel this earthy, simple summer vibe, Belle Epoque has all you need!  They have a Summer Hunt going on, with loads of pretty things for you to search for and craft the perfect summer look.  Just search around the store (and outside too) to find the little water droplets that contain a prize.  There are 28 gorgeous pieces to find – each costing only 10 Lindens.  I chose items number 20 and 26 – This gorgeous Midi Length Dress, and the fantastic flower crown that you must admit really is a statement piece.   I’ve added the key to the hunt below so you can choose which items you love (or just grab them all…I won’t judge).  All hunt items are sized for Maitreya.

Happy Hunting!

A Fish Out Of Water

FabFree: A Fish Out Of Water - Part 1
Good morning Fabulous Readers! I couldn’t help it… As soon as I saw the vendor ad for The Belle Epoque Ocean’s Daughter gacha set at The Arcade Gacha, I knew I was going to play it.  I have been watching the Siren TV series (which is fantastic, btw) recently and am BIG into mermaids!  I made my way in to The Arcade yesterday and managed to pick up a few of the core pieces to put together my Fish Out Of Water looks.

About Ocean’s Daughter

This beautiful set includes 26 pieces at 75L a play, including 1 rare which is the Mermaid Tail (inc. texture change HUD & AO) that allows you, once complete to put together a mermaid look shown above wearing the rare tail and the top – or the sea legs look as shown below wearing the skirt and top without the tail.  There are several accessory pieces as well, but I had a couple of my own already so I went with those to save a few plays.

Tale As Old As Time

Tale As Old As Time

Okay, what do you think of this one? Better or worse then the last 8 that I tried on? At least in SL we don’t need to worry about going back for a different size, they’re all already included in one handy dandy folder. If only RL shopping were as simple. *Sigh* Now that I think about it, a HUD to change clothing colors in RL and windlight settings to fix that dreadful lighting would be nice too. Is someone keeping a list? We need to make this happen.

Nevermind that I match the dressing room

When it’s such a pretty color, surely matching the walls isn’t really a bad thing. This very ladylike and elegant dress is the newest group gift from Belle Epoque. The group is 10L to join. If matching the walls isn’t your preference, there are a bunch of other springy, happy colors to choose from in the included HUD.

And shoes to match

I love a great pair of heels. These are a Teleport Hub group gift from G&D. It’ll cost you another 10L to join the group and you’ll get the heels sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.

Catching some voodoo…

At Night_001

While Aline was checking out music videos , I was outside on the docks listening to the serenade of tree frogs and crickets. I think I’m going to convince Aline to get out with me here more often. I could use some of her style advice to spice up my wardrobe. Maybe I’m too drab? I dunno! But I think this dress is a little voodoo/witchy so I think Aline would approve… what you do you think?

Catching some voodoo.

Get some voodoo for yourself and pick up this black dress from Santino Design by joining the group (it will only set you back 5 little linden) and then you can grab this great group gift. There’s actually a wall full of fantastic past group gifts that you can grab while you are there at the main store. I was tempted to show you some of the past group gifts as well, but decided to stick to this most recently out group gift instead.

All the sizes! It comes in some great sizes too. Just look at what you get:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • eBody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique & Hourglass
  • Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • TMP
  • Tonic Fine & Curvy

Well I’m signing off. I think I’ll crash head over to Aline’s place to see what music she is playing and find out if she’ll let me in to listen to her music with her! Maybe if I bring Twizzlers she’ll let me get away with it!

Crank It

Crank It

The weekend may be coming to a close, but I’m milking every little bit of fun out of it that I can.  Aline is the type of girl who shows up in a bodysuit and thigh highs yelling “crank it up”, and we’re all just along for the ride.  I found all sorts of freebies to match her no holds barred attitude.

This Body Suits Me

I nipped into Aphrodite and my eye settled upon this interesting bodysuit with lacing up the back.  I particularly enjoy the little peekaboo hearts down the front – my tattoo peeks through!  Fun.  You can pick up this pretty little number by joining the Aphrodite group for free!

Sizes

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

Boom!

As I strutted my way around the grid, I realised that my Second Life wouldn’t be complete without a pair of thigh highs.  Lucky for little ole me and you, Belle Époque knows that too, and they have updated their Fab Free group gift recently to these AMAZING boots.  I seriously love every minute of them.  The colour is to die for.  You can grab them by joining the Fab Free inworld group for free!  Oh, also as I walked up to the entrance of the store, I passed the lucky boards, and saw these flowers to adorn my mane – no group join required to pick these up, making these delicate buds completely free!

Just keep strutting, friends!

Key to My Heart

Key to My Heart

Happy Valentine’s Day Fab Readers!

Oh, I’m all hearts and candy today, happily batting my eyelashes and being flouncy.   I’m feeling the love, what can I say?  My pretty little outfit is helping the cause as well, so read on to find out how you can grab it too!

Heart Eyes

Belle Epoque has a mini hunt going on!  The creator, Janire Coba, has created 15 beautiful items for V-Day, all priced at just 10L each.  So search high and low for these gorgeous creations, because they’re totally worth it!  I found item number 11, which is this flirty little dress festooned with heart-shaped locks and keys. The dress is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.   So so sweet!  You’d better hurry down to Belle Epoque though, because the hunt will end on the 18th of February! Oh and by the way, here’s a handy little pic of all the prizes:

Key to My Heart 2

Happy Hunting, Valentines.  I heart you all!

Is It Spring Yet?

Belleepoque25LTuesdayHEY!  Do you know what day it is?

It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time for another round of 25L Tuesday!  I received a notice in the Belle Epoque inworld group last night to notify me that they are offering their {Uma} skirt and two different coloured tops (I am wearing the orange, but there is also a sunshiny yellow!) for 25L a piece and it just screamed “BLOG ME”, so I had to show it to you!

I know you all love to see free stuff here on FabFree, but you know…  sometimes these offers are actually less expensive than a group join fee, so I thought they were worth a mention here.  I know that if I had found these three items as group gifts with a 75L join fee, I’d have paid it to pick them up, so paying 25L a pop for them is all the same to me!  Plus…  SPRING FLOWERS! (SWOON)

Try Before You Buy!

The three {Uma} pieces come in one fitted mesh size that fits my Maitreya Lara body like a glove, but since it doesn’t specify which body exactly they fit, please do try a demo before you buy.  While you are there make sure you check out the lucky boards outside on the lawn, and the group gifts available inside the store.

Solo Showtunes

Solo Showtunes

I got bored being cooped up indoors all day.  It’s too cold out, the wind is howling, the snow is swirling, and all I want is to break free!  I found a hot dress, put on some heels, and this great headdress, picked up my hairbrush and belted out showtunes to my adoring audience!  Oh, and by audience, I mean the dust bunnies!

One Day I’ll Fly Away…

I found this supersexy mini dress in my meanderings through the grid.  It’s a striking white shade with some intense cutouts.  The back is extreeeemely daring, so I spared your eyes and kept facing front!  You can grab this hot little number at the current round of Cosmopolitan.  Just join the group for free, and then click on the posters near the entrance to grab your free dress! It is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

Gacha Obsession

Are you a Gacha person?  I totally am, it can be a bit of a problem!  Sometimes though, I just play each machine once and see what kind of an outfit I can put together!  I got this month’s Pocket Gacha HUD, and played a few of the gachas.  I managed to grab these sweet heels from Belle Epoque (50L) , the fantastic peacock headdress by The Annex (75L) , and even the cute pose by Belle Poses (which comes with the hair brush) (60L).

The dustbunnies are clamouring for an encore!
