One last thing…

FabFree: One last thing...

Hey there Fabulouses!  I know, I have been here once already today, but I promise this time I’ll be way less wordy and to the point!  When I read the news on Juli’s post earlier saying that the Cosmopolitan Anniversary Round was over tomorrow, I knew I had to get this post up so you have time to grab it before it’s gone.

Seeing Red

As mentioned in several previous posts here on The FabFree Blog, almost every vendor at this Anniversary Round of Cosmopolitan has a free group gift set to the free to join Cosmopolitan group.  Nerido has boxed up for us, a very sexy (fitted for Maitreya Lara) lingerie piece called Nicole Bodysuit in Red.  It’s pretty sheer, so I am strategically posed, but also posed in a way that you can see the sweet bows at the back.

That’s it from me tonight – Sweet dreams!!

Cloud Nine

It isn’t often that Gabe is the one to tell me about a good deal. But, I guess it had to happen sometime. of course, I’m talking about the 7th Anniversary Cosmopolitan Event he just wrote about. But since there are oodles of gifts at The 7th Anniversary Cosmopolitan Event, I can get over being scooped.

Wrapped in Floral

It’s no secret I love a pretty floral print, the more vintage the better. So I was quick to grab this super cute wrap top. This is “Sonia” from FashionNatic and it’s the free gift at Cosmo.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass

And Booted with Emeralds

Cute Boots! Need I say more?? These are the “Knit Sock Boots in Emerald” from Ricielli and they are gorgeous. You can zoom alllll the way in and each detail and texture is perfect! Cute boots AND a great build!

Sizes Included

  • Maitreya
  • SLink

I’m on Cloud Nine

I skipped this little gift at first. I thought it was “just furniture” and I’m loaded down with furniture already. Then I saw what it actually is… a wearable cloud! Your own personal little fluffy cloud to glide around on!  Needless to say, I’ve been floating everywhere since I picked it up.  Now, I don’t think MoonRabbit meant for this to be a vehicle, per se. BUT… you can glide along as you walk since the cloud is a wearable. There are four cute poses in the cloud chair and I can’t decide which one I like best!

The 7th Anniversary Cosmopolitan Event ends on June 15th ( TOMORROW) so hurry over  and get your shopping on!

In a Mood

In a Mood

It’s not always easy to find good free or almost free things for the men of Second Life. Sometimes, I skip entire events because I just know there’s nothing there for me. I very glad I didn’t skip this round of Cosmopolitan.

Hats off

Or hats on… this is the “Weatherman” from Bondi and it’s the free gift at Cosmopolitan. The hat is technically ‘unisex’ but don’t take this from me. The hat is completely resizable and repositionable so you can get the perfect fit. Just join the Cosmopolitan free group and pick up your gifts.

On the Hunt

In my never ending hunt for men’s fashion, I scour the Hunts each month and this month has been productive. I stumbled on the ‘Red Shoe Diaries’ “Little Black Book Hunt and it has not one but two tracks just for the men. One track, the one I’m showing prizes from, has a 1L price tag for each gift and the second track is 25L per prize.

First up is the “Cole” shirt from The Sissy Bar. As with everything I’ve seen from this designer, Cole is well made and subtly textured. Well worth the 1L and the time hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Jake
  • David
  • Exmachina – Davide
  • Signature – Gianni, Gerault
  • SLink – Physique

Classic Jeans

Next up on the RSD/LBB Hunt are the “Bridgeport Jeans” from Horr Menswear. I really am impressed with these jeans. Jeans are such a staple of our wardrobe, it can be easy to toss out subpar pairs and hope no one notices. Horr Menswear has done just the opposite: they’ve made a first rate pair of jeans. Every detail is perfect and the texture couldn’t be better. And it’s still just 1L and a little hunting.

Sizes Included

  • Adam
  • Aesthetic
  • Belleza Jake
  • Classic Mesh – XS-XL
  • Signature – Gianni
  • SLink – Physique
  • TMP

The longest day has just begun

The longest day has just begun

Hi there! I went shopping at Cosmopolitan and found presents! And I paired them with a pretty FabFree gift to show off a whole bunch of free! Nothing wrong with that. And then I decided to hang out by some stairs. That’s totally logical, right? And of course I threw in a nonsensical title and a bunch of sentence fragments. So pretty much nothing new for me. I’m sure that the run on sentences will be along shortly, don’t you worry!

Everything Cosmopolitan 

After the billions of free gifts at the last round of Cosmopolitan, I wasn’t expecting anything when I heading over to do some light window shopping and demoing. But I was pleasantly surprised! There is an easel on either side of the door and each displays a free group gift. You’ll need to join the free group (there’s a group joiner right under each gift) to get them. On one side is this lovely free dress from Miimikri. I love the lace detail on the top and the pretty ruffles. It comes in this pretty soft color and in sizes for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. The gift on the other side is a pack of free poses from Nina Rosario! I love me some poses and this pack of five of them is really nice.

Shiny Things

Every time I peruse the FabFree group gift listing I’m amazed by all of the awesome things on it. Today I picked up this pretty free jewelry set from Beloved Jewelry. It includes the necklace as well as earrings. You can only see a little bit of one of the earrings peaking out of my hair, but it’s literally the bottom of the necklace (the biggest circle and the tassel) in earring form. Head over to the store and you’ll see what I’m badly describing. Just active your Fabulously Free in SL group tag (or join for free if you’re not already in the group) and give the vendor a click.

I want you to have it all

I want you to have it all

Have you noticed that I have this habit of blogging events on their last day? I don’t know what that’s about. I guess I just feel like I need one last hurrah with the fabulous gifts before it’s over or something. So today I bring you a couple more Cosmopolitan gifts. But wait, there’s more! I also have a great new gift that just came out last night…

Goodbye Cosmopolitan

The current round of Cosmopolitan ends today, so this is the last chance to pick up all of those awesome freebies. There is a group joiner at the door, and the group is required to get all of the gifts. But of course the group is free to join so that’s no big deal. I’m wearing 2 more of the gifts here:

  • The necklace by adorsy is rigged, which I love, although only for Maitreya. It’s a super cute style that I can see myself wearing a lot.
  • My outfit is the gift from EB. I know that I’m not showing all of the skirt but it’s tight, short, and kinda ombres at the bottom to the same pink as the top. I love how high the waist of the skirt is – it almost looks like a dress from the back but then the front shows a little skin in between. The skirt and top are separate pieces and each comes sized for Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique.

Hello Chain

My earrings are the newest free group gift from Chain. You’ve really gotta go pick them up, they are even prettier in-world. The detail is just amazing. It also comes with a HUD to change them to 15 different metal colors. Chain’s group is 100L to join and the wall of group gifts is now up to 10, plus this new one. What a bargain.

Say my name, sun shines through the rain

Say my name, sun shines through the rain

Hi there! I’ve maybe gone a little overboard with the flowers today – they’re on my dress, in my hair, and of course all over my background. But I can’t help it. Flowers are always pretty and they never clash with each other, they just become more beautiful! Huh I feel like there’s a life lesson in there somewhere. I better cut myself off before this becomes another edition of “deep thoughts with Allison.”

Floral Dress

I love this sweet, floral dress from BEO. It’s feminine and sexy all at the same time and hangs just perfect. The more I look at it the more I like it, it’s truly lovely. It is only sized for Maitreya and comes with a HUD that lets you change the color of the belt. The BEO group is free to join and you’ll find this dress in the store as a free group gift.

Tippy Toes

These super cute flip flops are another of the Cosmopolitan free group gifts. I posted all the details of this event yesterday, and you can find links in that post to the others posts on the subject. These shoes come in just one size, which fit my Maitreya high feet perfectly. They include a HUD that lets you pick different colors, too. These will definitely become a summer staple for me!

‘Cause if you want to blow my mind then blow my mind

'Cause if you want to blow my mind then blow my mind

You guys, the gifts that all of the designers have put out for the 6th anniversary of Cosmopolitan are really nice! I’ve been really pleased with everything and had a hard time deciding what to wear first. There is an easel when you first go through the doors with a group joiner so you can join the free “!!Cosmopolitan Club and Lounge!!” group. I joined the group and was able to pick up a gift from most of the designers, all for free. Here’s a little play by play of what I put together:

Rings

I have to start with the gift from Meva. I was shocked when I unpacked these rings. Not only do I already have these rings in silver and love them, but I paid for them. And now you can get them as a free gift! The free gift includes the rings in gold for each hand, plus a HUD that allows you to hide and show them.

Hair

The hair that I’m wearing is the free gift from Limerence. It’s a super cute little updo with a braid wrapped around. It comes in a nice variety of fun colors.

Top

I love a cute little corset top and this one is lovely. It is the free gift from Tachinni. It comes in a pretty, pale pink shade and has laces down the back that can be adjusted with an included HUD – you can change the colors of the laces and make them longer or shorter. It includes 4 mesh sizes: Freya, Hourglass, Maitreya, and Isis.

 

All 3 of these gifts can be picked up at Cosmopolitan. There’s already been a bit of Cosmopolitan coverage on FabFree, specifically here, here, here, and here. Enjoy!
