Beachin’

Beachin'

You know what every Wednesday needs? Beach time! I had just hit the Cart Sale ( if you haven’t gone, why NOT??) and I saw that Dark Water Designs had these great swim suits for both the guys and us girls and I thought, “Yep… the beach is calling!”  So I grabbed the bargain suits, just 10L each and rang Gabe up!

Tropical Cocktail Time!

This is the ‘Cocktail’ one piece in Merlot. As with everything from Dark Water Design, every detail is perfect and the fit is spot on. You get two versions of the suit: one with this tone on tone design and one solid colored. Not only do you get the suit… You get a recipe for a summery cocktail. I’m going to try the one included with “Merlot” asap! Of course, please enjoy the cocktails responsibly and only if you’re over 21! 😉

Gabe’s “Beach Shorts’ are also just 10L on the Dark Water Designs Cart. There are four suits for the guys. Two tropical flower prints and two camo prints. Again, the design and build are perfect. I like that they’re sorta sexy but still modest.

Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland

I may be something of a grump but there are a few things I really do like about the Holiday Season.  I have to admit, I enjoy the “finding a tree” rituals. The tree lots or cutting a fresh tree. Nothing makes it really Christmas time for me like the smell of evergreens and some hot chocolate at the tree farm.

Winter Wonderland

Another Holiday tradition has to be the Wash’s Winter Wonderland Cart Sale. And I have to include here a huge thank you to all the designers who don’t forget the men of Second Life when they stock those Carts! On that note, Dark Water Designs has set out a handsome coat and sweater combo for us in four festive colors: the’Winter jacket Combo’. It’s a combo times two. You get the jacket sweater as a combination and the sweater can be changed from plain to a snowflake pattern.

Sizes Included

  • FitMesh
  • Classic Mesh S_L

Carson, Who Stole Christmas

Blueberry - Holidays Gift - Sky Version Winter Cabin

Every Blogger down in Fab-ville liked Christmas a lot
But Carson who lived just North of Fab-ville did not!
Carson hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
It could be his head wasn’t screwed on just right.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
He hated the Bloggers, he knew what to do
He would steal their presents to make them cry boo hoo!
Then he slid down the chimney, a rather tight pinch.
But if Santa could do it, then so could this grinch.
He got stuck only once, for a minute or two.
Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue
Where the little Fab stockings hung all in a row.
“These stockings,” he grouched, “are the first things to go!”
Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant,
Around the whole room, and he took every present!
And he stuffed them in bags. Then Carson, very nimbly,
Stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney.
As Carson took the tree, as he started to shove,
He saw a small dog, “I’ll take it from Love!”

 

Alter Sweater Fatpack

Just North of Fab-ville Carson did go.
With presents and goodies and the dog in tow.
But the dog didn’t whimper,
It wanted to play.
And what happened then? Well, in Fab-ville they say
That Carson’s small heart grew three sizes that day!
Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!

(with apologies to Dr. Seuss)

Fall Days

Hello, FabFree Readers,

Fall Days

I’m sure by now you areall well aware of the Indian Summer Cart Sale being held at the Wash. While there are plenty of carts full of lovely things for the ladies, rest assured that there are many nice selections for the gentlemen as well.  For example, this warm sweater from K&A Designs. This is the ‘Hunter Sweater’ and it’s on K&A’s Cart for a mere 10L. Elegant Autumn style that won’t break your bank.  Comes in the standard mesh sizes S-L as well as two Fitmesh versions, all with good alpha layers.

The Indian Summer Cart Sale only runs a few more days at the Wash. So don’t delay, September 28 will be here before you know it.
I remain most sincerely yours,
Gabe's Signiture

At The Beach, Checking Out The Waves!

Whc spring break 1

Hello everyone, welcome to my last post as a staff member of Fab Free. I would regale you with the story of how, when I was a new resident over seven years ago, I relied on Fab Free to find great items to pick up, how I would eventually come to idolize Love to an embarrassing extent, how I revered Carson when he was a male blogger here, and how much I wanted to emulate them both. This blog has been more than a hobby; it was hugely important to me in both my first and second lives. Sadly, though, times do change. While my feelings towards Fab Free have not, I do need to step away from my dream job here in order to focus on other matters at hand.

Before I go, I have to tell you about a few fantastic items. The great Roughnecks T-Shirt shown above is available as a free group gift. It has been a long winter for me and the thought of donning a well-worn, soft cotton tee and shorts is irresistible. This free Group Gift Tee looks very much like a real world garment and is adorned with a cool biker image on both the front and the back. Inside the box is a wide range of versions including tucked, untucked, Mesh, Fitmesh and three different waist widths to help fit with a wide range of Mesh pants. Not only is this going to fit well but this Tee is going to look great with almost any pants you choose to wear with it. I was very impressed with everything included in this box.

The shorts I am wearing come from the unbelievably bountiful Dark Water Designs cart at the Spring Freshness At The Wash Cart Sale Event! Previously, the main item on it was featured by Astrid here, but there is so much more there that deserves a look! These Cargo Shorts in White Canvas look fantastic and inspired me to go seek out some sun. (A good thing too because in real life my legs were about that color). I love the way they look but I should caution you that finding the perfect shirt to wear with them is slightly more complicated since they seem to require a little extra width at the waist at the back. Luckily they look awesome if you go bare-chested too and the little extra work putting together an outfit with them is well worth the effort!

whc spring break2

Also at the Dark Water Designs cart at the Spring Freshness At The Wash Cart Sale Event are these sharp looking polo shirts. My favorite was the Polo Shirt – Nautical package which contains that fun looking print shirt you see me chilling on the beach in. In addition to that design it comes with a hud that gives you two more textures to choose from, a bargain at only 10L! Inset in the picture are two examples of the Polo Shirt – Madras Colors package also available for only 10L. Along with a third color (light blue) included in the texture change hud, these polos are excellent Easter and spring-wear. All put together this was one of the best cart sale carts I have ever seen!

Oddity has a great item they are giving away as a free group gift that is perfect for us spring breakers. The -TopGun- Dark Glasses are sharp looking aviator style sunglasses. A classic eternally popular design, these sunglasses are a good pickup as you prepare to look cool for the coming spring and summer months. Well done Oddity, thank you!

It has been beyond fun serving all of you. In the end, that is what we do here at Fab Free, and that what all of us at here have in common. It doesn’t matter where we are, where we have been, or when we were here at this wonderful institution. What we do, we do out of love for all of you. I have re-launched my own blog and will continue posting there when time permits. I leave you with one final thought: Second Life is an amazing adventure if you open yourself to it and allow yourself to be carried away. The trick is finding what you love and focusing on that. My time here has been my greatest adventure so far, and I want to thank all of you for that. Take care and I will see you on the grid.—–WHC Riler

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale – Dark Water Designs

Dark Water Designs is one of those designers that never fails to impress me.

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale - Dark Water Designs

And the Cart this designer has set up for us at the Wash’s sale is no exception. I had no trouble picking out what I wanted to show this time. Not because everything wasn’t awesome but because when I saw the Lolita Jumper I was in love! It’s a simple thing but the details are amazing. I love the color, the pattern … just everything. You get the five standard Mesh sizes and the alpha.

Dark Water Designs- CART

Dark Water Designs has some really cool items set out for our guys, too. I’m really taken with the graffiti jeans.

You have until September 16th to get your shopping on here at the Wash!
