Just the Highlights

High Lights

For a limited time, Paisley Daisy has lowered their group join to only 10L so you can pick up their group gifts at a bargain. The August and September group gifts are both out. I’m showing you the pretty dress from August in the picture above and the September group gift is a sheer baby doll dress. The one pictured above is mesh in all the standard sizes and I felt it highlighted the last few days of nice weather… so it’s name was just perfect.

Today is also 25L Tuesday, and I was thrilled to discover beautiful shoes at Luas! These Dorothy shoes come in Slink or Maitreya fits in the box and you can get a choice of 8 colors for only 25L each. I picked up the ivory, but you may want to pick up something different… or one of each!

High Lights

I finished off my flowery look with a pretty necklace I found from Clever & Cool on the marketplace. This necklace was only 10L. When I first put it on, it had some serious bling, so I was skeptical, but then I discovered that I could turn that off by typing “bling off” into local chat and ta da! No more bling! It also allows for resizing and retexturing of the flowers into many different color choices besides the pink stones shown… so your 10 little Linden gets you a lot of necklace.

Come Dancing

Hey FabFree!

Come Dancing

One of my favorite things about Second Life is finding fun flirty clothes that I’d love to wear in real life. And that’s what I found at Clementine, a new-to-me designer. I stumbled on this cool designer through Third Life, a freebies and hunts group in world. This is ‘Alana’ and it’s the free gift for Third Life group members from Clementine. Alana comes in the standard mesh sizes XS-XL, Fitmesh XS-XL and appliers for SLink, Maitreya and Belleza.  I love the fun this fun look, I think it’s perfect to hit the dance floor in.

The Third Life Group is a tiny little five Lindens to join and you’ll find tons of great things each month. The Alana dress is the September gift from Clementine so don’t wait too long to nab it!

Speaking Abstractly

Speaking Abstractly

Sapphire Teebrook was away for a while due to real life illness and so the Glitterati August and September group gifts were late in coming. To thank everyone for their patience and the many well wishes she got, there are now five new gifts out at the Glitterati main-store. Three of these gifts are free to all, no group required. Two are group tag required (the August and September group gifts).

The group is 100L to join but there are about 80 past group gifts to pick up, several of which have been blogged before [HERE] and [HERE] for example.

In the picture above, Astrid is wearing two of the free to all gifts — the Julia dress in abstract with the Joyce heels. You don’t need a group to pick these up, just buy them for 0L. The dress comes in all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh for Maitreya and Belleza. I’m not sure how long they will be out, so be sure to hurry over and pick them up.

Get it through your skull

Hello hello FabFree!

In my Skull

Are you ready for the fall? I love the autumn season with everything it brings: crisp days, caramel apples and… Halloween! One of my most favorite holidays. I’m getting a jump on  the spooky this year at the Indian Summer Cart Sale at the Wash at Eluzion’s Cart. This is the ‘Shamira’ top and skirt and it’s only 10L on the Cart. I love the little pink skulls al over the top! Gets me right in the mood for Halloween. The top and skirt are one simple piece and has a good single alpha layer. The standard FitMesh sizes XS-XL as well as appliers for SLink, Maitreya and Belleza are all included.

I mentioned yesterday that – Sentinus –  is featuring a bunch of sales, gifts and a Hunt as well as a gift for the Second Life Frees and Offers group. This is the SLF&O gift : Samara. The flowy style comes in the one rich color and it’s free for wearing your SLF&O tag!

Give Me a Great Set of Heels

Give Me a Great Set of Heels

Give me a great set of heels and I’ll find the perfect dress to go with it! And I fell in love with this set of strappy stilettos from G&D Italian Style which can be yours totally FREE. You just need a group space, as the group is FREE to join, and once you don the group tag, you can pick up this strappy set of burgundy heels FREE. Once you open your gift, you’ll find a set of heels to fit Slink, Maitreya, and TMP feet!

I’m still finding 10L deals at the Indian Summer Cart Wash that I just can’t resist… and this beautiful dress by Aleutia is no exception. 10L gets you a two pack… same color but two textures. You’ll get the texture shown, plus an additional dress with the all over print pattern in the box as well. You’ll get all the standard mesh sizes, plus a fitmesh size to complete the package. All for just the single 10L price. There are lots of colors on the cart, so stop by even if burgundy isn’t your color… you’re bound to find a color to suit your tastes.

Morning Shopping at the Wash

Good Morning, FabFree!

Take the mic

I don’t know about you but it’s an “I need coffee” sort of morning here. I was up late, maybe too late but a little coffee and a little shopping? Now that’s the way to start the day.  I started out at the fantastic Indian Summer Cart Sale at the Wash and found this wonderful mini dress from Zanze. This is the Becca dress in cream I’m showing off. But it comes in several just-as-tasty colors and all for 10L each. The dress includes the standard Mesh sizes XS-L but it has no alpha layer. I found I actually didn’t need one. The dress fits perfectly! Just don’t forget your undies since you aren’t alphaed!😉

Right next to the Zanze Cart is the always awesome Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes Cart. Lindy has put out a very nice loaded Cart this round with shoes for SLink feet and system feet. I picked the Yeva heels in nude to match up with my new dress.

Last but not least, is a new hair style to top things off. This is the lovely ‘Esra’ from Sentinus and it was one of the current free groups gifts.  As of right now, the Sentinus group is free to join! Plus there is a nice selection of group gifts available, a free SLF&Os gift AND a great Hunt/sale going on! So don’t delay!

Don’t Bat Your Eyes: 14 Days of Giving at Meva!

15 Days of Giving

Don’t bat your eyes! I have big news! Not only is the Cart Wash Sale going on at the moment… but Meva is celebrating a new location with 14 Days of Giving Gifts!

I stopped by the Cart Wash today and picked up this Tabby Dress from the Little Bat Cart. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and for just 10 little Linden you get a color change hud with 8 choices… making this like 8 dresses in one for your 10L!

I then made a beeline for Meva where I picked up the very first of 14 gifts to come… my beautiful black bangles🙂 Every day you can pick up a new group gift as part of the giving with your group tag. The group fee is 100L but for 14 gifts the next two weeks, that fee will definitely pay for itself. I’m including the gift calendar picture below to show you what will be available. Don’t miss a day!

Autumn Afternoon

Heyya FabFree!

Autumn Afternoon

I know it’s not Tuesday but I’m feeling a fantasy role play mood coming on. Maybe because I picked up this gorgeous frock from BlueMoon Enterprise for free. This is “Coreen” in a lovely rusty red and it’s the latest group gift for September. The dress comes in the standard mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. As with everything from BlueMoon I’ve seen, Coreen is simply stunning in build and in details.  Don’t miss this one!

I was also excited to see that Mina has put out a free gift for the Second Life Frees & Offers group. The group is free to join and you can pick up tons of great freebies all around the grid. Mina is giving us this sweet hair style named, appropriately, “Mena” this month. Mena comes in a materials and a no materials version in this lovely light brown color. If you haven’t discovered Mina this is a great way to try it out for free… and get addicted.😉

As with all free gifts, these may not be around long so grab those group tags and get going!

One Fine Day

One Fine Day

Have you checked out the Indian Summer Cart Wash Sale yet?! I stopped by this morning and couldn’t help but pick up a couple of beautiful finds for myself.

My first stop was at the Ghee cart, where I picked up my simply beautiful silk Sari dress in Sugar. There are a lot of colors out and at only 10L each, you may just be tempted to pick up each and every color! You’ll get all the standard sizes as well as fitmesh, Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique. I was in love!

I also stopped by the Roped Passion’s cart, where I picked up my Nani sandals. These beautiful flowered sandals also come in several colors, though I nabbed the pink to match my dress. These too are just 10L each and you’ll get a pair to fit Slink or Maitreya feet in each box. What a deal!
