Don’t you want me Baby….Don’t you want me ohhh, ohohohhhh….

Hello FabFree readers!! How is your weekend going? Mine has been pretty good. So far, I’ve spent quite a bit of it putting together a great outfit to show you, and listening to some 80’s pop, hence the title of this post. My outfit has a touch of 80’s flare to it, or at least I think, so I ‘spose I better tell you all about it, eh? LOL

RDDress2

The fabulous dress I am wearing is the {RS} Cheyenne Dress from Rowena’s Designs, and is one of her free group gifts set out for the SLF&O’s group. The dress is mesh, and of course it is available in 5 standard sizes from XXS-L. I really love the texture detail on this one, you really have to put it on and walk around in a lovely sim in it, like I did, to truly appreciate it! It’s all about the ambiance 🙂

My hot red shoes are curtousy of the closing out sale from  *CASHMERE&KEANE*.  They are the *CASHMERE*Stamped Pointed Platforms, and like the shoes I showed you HERE, the fatpack is available for only L$25, just make sure you left click the fatpack box, as right clicking does not give you the option to buy. There are 12 different colours in this pack, so you will have shoes to match every outfit possible…really. Does anyone else love the shiny metal toe cap as much as I do?

To finish my outfit off, I went with the impressive Cougar jewelry set, in this great leopard print, which is the free, May group gift from FINESMITH. I know, it’s June, but as of today, the May gift was still available. This set, which comes with a necklace, earrings, and a 3-finger ring is really for when you want to make a statement with what you are wearing, as the pieces are so bold and chunky. I just love the flow of the links in the necklace. The group is still free to join, but as I said before, I am not sure for how long…so you better get going if you have been holding off on joining. Oh, and just a fyi, the set is not on the little island where all the other group gifts are, when you land in the store from my slurl, walk to your left along the water’s edge until you get to the stairs leading into the water, the display board will be to your left, and you just need to left click the board with your group tag on to receive the Cougar set.

Well, I hope you liked this look as much as I do. I have it saved as an outfit in my Outfits folder so I can throw it on whenever I want, which I can bet will be often. That’s it for me for now, until next time, TTFN *waves*

8-bits of Mesh goodness!

I have so many cool things for you in this post, that I am just going to get right into it!

CashmereLG2

The other night, I was idly reading some group chatter, can’t remember for which group, and someone mentioned a store I had never heard of, *CASHMERE&KEANE*. They said it was closing out, and everything was on sale, with stuff for both men and women. While I hate hearing of stores closing, it does usually mean a great bargain for shoppers, and I was not disappointed! Everything in store is L$25, and if you love a retro vibe (especially the ’80’s), you need to head there before they close for good.  I picked up a few things, one of my favourites being this mesh, 1 piece, Zapo Jacket/Shirt combo in Orange. There are many colours available, but I just loved this colour, and I didn’t have an orange jacket already, so of course I had to get it! I also picked up these gorgeous SLink mid shoes, the Cassidy Heel, as a fatpack for L$25. Seriously, there are loads of colours, and that tassel is just too darn cute! Lastly, I picked up the Pyramid Watch(platinum), also for L$25. You actually get 2 watches, you get a plain version, and a rainbow version, which I am wearing. There are so many other great quality items, you really should hurry down there, even if you aren’t as thrilled with my choices, I would hate for you to miss out on this sale.

While I was putting my outfit together, digging on the retro vibe, I realized that the leggings in the mesh [LG] Boutique-Call Me Maybe Outfit would totally work for my look. The outfit these leggings are from, are another one of the SLF&O’s free gifts that are available at LivGlam. I love getting full outfits from a store, but I love even more when I can wear those pieces with something else. The studs down the sides of my legs really have that matching retro vibe.

With this definite ’80’s vibe I had going on, I couldn’t believe my luck when I found the sim my main picture was taken on. If you are an 8-bit game fan, you have to go visit. They even have a fun little tutorial that awards you with a prize when you finish it! I had to show it all to you. Yes, that red troopa is me, 8-bit style! There are several different ‘worlds’ to explore here, so take your time and investigate everything! You never know what secret passage ways you will find.

A Little “HY” on a Coffee House!

Blogging soon!

Those of you who know me on Facebook have probably figured out that I’m a pretty serious coffee enthusiast. In fact, there are some days when I think the only reason I get out of bed in the morning is to have coffee! Anyway, when I learned that ++HY’s++ was giving away this fabulous coffee house as a gift for their 2nd Anniversary Hunt, I just knew I had to have it. I’ve always wanted to have a little store or hangout in SL, and since I don’t build or make things, a coffee house is perfect! This sweet little shop can be YOURS too once you find the birdhouse (which is a cute gift in itself). You only have until February 9th though, so don’t delay!

Blogging soon!

I really can’t wait to get started decorating! I hated to show you an empty build, but I knew I wouldn’t get finished in time for you to get the gift. Plus, when you land at ++HY’s++, you can visit a decorated sample, if you want to see what it looks like full of stuffs. Before I knew the build would be a hunt gift, I shot these pictures of Gavin at the sample at ++HY’s++.

Blogging soon!

Another view of the interior. I really love the detail in this build. The counter even raises up and down so you can get behind it to serve your customers. 🙂

Blogging soon!

The fireplace here is a past hunt gift from DIGS, and is not included. I just think a building is bare without a fireplace, so I dropped this one in. Oh! I forgot to tell you that the awnings on the front porch are texture-change; 5 different textures are included.

Blogging soon!

What am I wearing? Well, the “caffeinated raccoon” t-shirt is a free gift for all from PRISM Designs, and my ripped tights are a free gift from {Tilly} on the Marketplace. I really love these studded shoes, which are a subscriber gift from *Cashmere&Keane*; they come in both men’s and women’s sizes with a sock or no-sock option. And my comic-covered bag is the Bag It! Pack It! Clutch It! Hunt gift from Eclectic Stars; two designs are included in the box.

So, there you have it. Nessie and I are going to be busy making plans to decorate our new coffee house! 😀
