Nostalgic Record Store Day


Nostalgia

Hello Fab Free! Welcome back to the blog, I hope you’re ready for some sweet nostalgia via the Record Store Day gacha set by Petite Mort for the current round Gacha Garden. Don’t hate because these items are gachas, I promise I would not share them if I didn’t believe they were well worth the effort. The moment I saw this Record Store Day set by Petite Mort I had to have it, and honestly am so excited to share it with you!

Collecting records goes deep for me. I have so many great memories from childhood on up through recent years of listening to music on a record player, and of buying albums. Then there’s that crackle before the music plays, looking at all the artwork on the albums, the feel of the vinyl, it’s a little bit like magic in my world. I’m so glad Love was able to get together with me to create this photo, and help tap into all those awesome memories and share this set with you. This second photo is her version of this visual story.

FabFree: I got your back

Hey There Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. One of the many things I enjoy about Second Life is that you really can be anything at any time. Today I was a skilled basketball player with who could command the court. Thanks to my guy Blue who pointed out this cool pose by PO^Z, and thanks to this free group gift dress by Apple Blossom, Pru even looks the part.

The Pose – This static basketball pose by PO^Z is called “Bring It On” and can be found at the PO^Z main store for just 65 linden. This bento pose includes the basketball, and the pose. There’s even a pose ball version of the pose included as well. You can also purchase the pose from PO^Z for the same 65 linden price on the Marketplace.

The Dress – This cute dress by Apple Blossom is a free group gift. It comes in several sizes and you can pick it up in navy (shown) and turquoise. The Apple Blossom group is free to join at this time, and there is a sim-wide spring sale happening. From now until March 31, everything except gachas at the Apple Blossom store is marked 50% off.

Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim’s Daughter Longstocking


Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking

Hello Fab Free’rs, I’m feelin’ a little nostalgic today. The new group gift hairstyle by No Match with it’s braided pigtails sticking strait out made me giggle, but it also reminded me of some of the female literary characters from my youth that I so admired. Girls such as Anne Shirley, Caddie Woodlawn, Laura Ingalls, and of course Pippi Longstocking all held a special place in my little-girl heart. I remember them being brave, intelligent, imaginative girls who knew who they were and what they wanted. It felt good to be reminded of them today. So inspired, I paired the youthful hairstyle with the striped sweater-dress Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East and ran with it. I hope you enjoy this fun look as much as I do.

The Hairstyle – This hairstyle by No Match is their current free group gift. Called No Socks, it really made me think of being little and barefoot in the springtime. It comes with a full fatpack of hair colors, and can be resized. Also included are system layer hair-bases, and a set of mesh head hair-base appliers (Omega, Lelutka, Catwa, TMP). You’ll need to wear the No Match group tag to get this gift. The current group join fee is 50 linden and there are quite a few past group gifts available on the second floor.

The Sweater Dress – I think it’s the stripes that made this off-the-shoulder sweater dress seem so youthful to me. It’s the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Sevyn East. I could also see it paired with some tall boots. It comes with a color/texture change hud that has 4 preset options, all of which are striped. To get your copy of this free gift just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Sevyn East. If you’re not a Fabulously Free in SL group member yet, you can join for free.

Sizes Included: Belleza (Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara

Pumpkin Picking Time

Pumpkin Time

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Isn’t this outfit just darling?  It was perfect for a little impromptu pumpkin picking adventure on a warm autumn day.  Ripley and I discovered it on our latest trip to The Cart Wash Sale.  I love the criss-cross lacing on the Classy Chics Designer Top and the way the Denim Mesh Shorts hug my every curve.  Both are designed specifically for the Maitreya mesh body and are available at the Classy Chics display at The Cart Wash.  The overlapping semi circles on my blouse create a pleasing, sophisticated pattern, and the dangling laces add a whimsical touch.  If you’d prefer a different texture, there are nine choices available in all.  At only 10L per selection, I scooped up a variety!  My shorts came with a color change HUD which includes 9 options, so it’s like getting 9 different pairs of shorts for just 50L.  Now that’s a real deal!

On the Trail of Another Fabulous Find

Speaking of deals, the pupster just put his nose to the ground at The Cart Wash, and insistently began pulling me, making a beeline for a display across the way.  That can only mean one thing – my hound with a nose for fashion is on to another great deal for us to share with you.  We will undoubtedly be back soon with another budget-friendly Fabulous Find.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

Can’t Sleep

Can't Sleep
Hello there Fab Free’rs! Sorry to have been a little absent lately, I’m sure you all know how it is when real life decides to get in the way.  That said, I have been a little tired and I think I’m due for a day of doing nothing. In preparation for my day of well nothing I picked up the latest group gift for Fab Free group members at Satus Inc. The gift from Satus Inc. matches perfectly with these inexpensive tube socks from Classy Chics on the Marketplace. I also picked up the perfect pillows for lounging around at Zen Creations.

Don’t Grow Up It’s a Trap!

This over sized pajama shirt is a FREE gift at Satus Inc. for all Fabulously Free in SL group members. An over-sized shirt is my favorite lazy day lounge wear. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. To get your gift, head over to Satus Inc. and wear your Fab Free group tag. Then just click the gift vendor. The shirt reads “Don’t Grow Up It’s a Trap” and I have to tell you I often agree with that statement!

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, FitMesh (XS – XL), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), TMP

Sleepy Pillows

These whimsical throw pillows are a current group gift at Zen Creations. Each pillow can change color via touch, and can be displayed together as shown or individually. The Zen Creations group is also FREE to join at this time. You’ll need to wear the Zen Creations group tag to get this FREE set of pillows.

Tube Socks

I secretly hope that tube socks never go out of style. Maybe they were never in style in the first place. Either way these socks are perfect for a day of do-nothing-ness. These socks are from a shop called Classy Chics on the Marketplace. They come as a Maitreya applier only for just 25 lindens. The hud has six color variations, five of which are white sock with colored stripes, and one black sock with white stripes.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Lovely Weather for a Sleigh Ride Together With You

Lovely Weather for a Sleigh Ride
Happy Holidays, Fabulouses!  After a day of shopping at the Cart Wash sale, Ripley and I celebrated the arrival of winter with a sleigh ride at Pandora Resort.  The snowy landscape reminded me of the white Christmases I enjoyed when I was growing up.  Ripley had a blast trying to retrieve snowballs that I tossed his way….and he kept losing them in the snowbank!

Chic Sweater Set

My golden-hued sweater from Classy Chics was one of my Cart Wash discoveries.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s a great place to pick up some budget-friendly goodies for yourself.  The sale runs until January 4th, so you still have time to scoop up some finds… all for only 10L each! Featuring a bright, argyle pattern in a short, cropped jacket style, this long-sleeved knitted top coordinates with the undershirt beautifully.  The texture on the white top, and its cute bow are simply adorable!  If gold is not your color, the set also includes more seasonal red and green options.  The tops are all Maitreya appliers, and worked beautifully with my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  These white capris, also a Maitreya applier, are part of the Classy Chic package from the Cart Wash.  For only 10L, you get a complete outfit!  Happy dance time!
Angel Earrings

Silver and Gold

‘Tis the season for silver and gold, and Luminesse has you covered with these exquisite angel Christabelle Yvelle earrings for only 10L at the Cart Wash sale.  With ruby centers, golden accents, crystal gems, and silvery wings, these delicate baubles reflect the spirit of the season.  I just love a pair of dangling earrings, don’t you?

Sweets for Santa

Ripley and I are off to finish baking cookies to set out for Santa tonight.  After the “Cookie Incident,” in which a certain canine, who shall remain nameless, decided to sample from the Big Guy’s platter, we have some catching up to do.  I hope you enjoy a relaxing evening, and would like to wish Happy Holidays to those of you who celebrate.  Until next time, dear readers, happy shopping!
