Glitterati‘s July gift is out and the store is generous with gifts. The join fee is 100L but that gives you access to the gorgeous current gift you see in the picture above plus all the past gifts (over 80 dresses) which you can pick up in a box nearby. This dress comes in all the standard sizes plus busty sizes, as well as Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, and fitmesh standards. You’re bound to find your fit. It’s perfect for a summery get away.

Have you stopped by the Hair Fair yet? Vendors are donating a portion of the profits to a good cause – Wigs for Kids – so its a good reason to spend some linden PLUS! many of the booths are giving beautiful gifts… like this gorgeous pony tail from Besom. This lovely mesh hair comes in essential colors and complimented my summery style rather nicely and was FREE no group required. Just stop by the booth and pick it up!

I decided I wanted some jewelry to add to my look, and found some pretty FREE items at Candy Crunchers that I really love. This is the Carissa Septum piercing and the Drop necklace. Either/or are yours FREE if you slap their respective Midnight Mania boards and they lockdown. Both boards lock down at just 50 slaps so get there early. There was also a board for some pretty rings too!

Flirt

Hello my dear FabFree-ers!

Flirt

I hope the weekend coming up has you all excited and happy! I know I am ready for some fun in the sun and some fun under the SL sun too.  I’m starting my weekend with the Flirty Summer Hunt since we only have a few more days to play this one.  This is the ‘Amelie’ dress from K Creations and it’s the 1L prize for this Hunt. I love the styling on this mini dress. The soft colors and the feminine floral print… just wonderful. Amelie comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L as well as a FitMesh version. I found it to be a great fit as well as very nicely built.

My hairstyle is another ‘show-off’ today. This is ‘Gem’ from Little Bones and it’s the very generous free gift at the Hair Fair. You get the large, medium and small versions of the hair plus a Lelutka applier along with a very nice HUD with sixteen natural and not so natural colors.

The Hair Fair will wrap up on July 31st but you have until August 15 for the Flirty Summer Hunt. So get crackin’!

Jasmine

Hey FabFree-ers!

I’ve been on the Hunt again and July is turning in to a great month for hunting.  I found this super cute crop top on the Pastel Party Hunt from Wicked. You get two versions of the ‘May’ top in the Hunt prize: the “steel Feathers” I’m showing you and a mint green version. And talk about something for every “body”. May comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS – L, plus appliers for Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus, SLink Physique and Hourglass and Maitraya.  All this for a little searching and 1 linden. The Pastel Party Hunt runs until July 31 so get to hunting.

My cool new skirt is from a ‘new to me’ designer: Delicatt Couture. This is the ‘Jasmine Skirt’ and it’s the free gift for the Third Life Group. Jasmine comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. Delicatt Couture has a ton of gifts out for their group and other “around the Grid’ groups so be sure to check them out!

Catch Me in your Dreams

Catch Me in Your Dreams

25L Tuesdays are a dream come true for roleplayers in Second Life… though I think this special item I came across today would please just about anyone. On a Lark has a pretty camisk out that roleplayers may just want to add to their wardrobe… and those of you who wear modern clothes could wear it with a pair of jeans and call it a pretty shirt. This is the “Envelop” top by On a Lark.

You can buy this pretty camisk today in a multitude of colors (and I do mean a lot of colors) for just 25L each. It comes in all your standard mesh sizes, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Belleza, Physique, and Hourglass, and each of the fits comes in two different textures for each color — a plain and a damask. Beware if you wear it alone! It covers the front but not the hiney (*winks*). I’m showing you a picture at the bottom of this post so you can see the pretty bow in the back that is the icing on the cake so to speak.

Pixel Box offered a weekend gift of a necklace Dreamcatcher that I added to my pretty look. This is a FREE TO ALL gift that you can pick up at the store. Sunday was supposed to be the last day that the gift was out, but when I checked this morning, it was still there… so I recommend haste if you like it and don’t want to miss out!

The Lady in Red

Lady in Red

There’s a fresh FREE lucky board at Entice (no group required) that is just yummy! This Rain Over Me in Gradient dress (with a 3 color hud for red, blue, or purple as your color choices) is yours with a bit of luck if your letter comes up. Don’t fret though… it’s right next to several other lucky letter boards, a FREE Group Midnight Mania board, a no group required FREE midnight Mania board, and other group gifts … all FREE. So you’re bound to find things to keep you busy while you wait for your letter!

This dress in standard fitmesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits, and includes an alpha layer for standard mesh bodies as well. You’re bound to find your fit!

The Moda board locked down the other day too, delivering me a pair of Cayla Wedges in red… woot! These matched my new Entice dress in its red color so well, that I couldn’t help remind you of this awesome FREE Midnight mania board. It locks down at 400 slaps and the pair of shoes changes out daily… so it’s worth smacking to lock down… just go slap it!

** Quick note to clarify: Since my Moda shoes are from a couple of days ago, today’s style and color will be different. As I explained in the paragraph above, the style and/or color available changes daily! This is just a reminder of this great free offer:)

A Girl and Her Bird

A Girl and Her Bird

It’s Saturday! And that means 30L specials abound… but I also have a special freebie for you today and a 1L goodie as well to round out a roleplay look that you won’t want to miss out on.

I stopped by Torvis Weapons today and discovered this beautiful red silk called Vidina on special for 30L. It includes the fitmesh camisk which you also get in Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits plus the gold bracelets, gold belt and a gold collar (collar not shown). For 30L, if you are an avid roleplayer, this is a steal!

Every archer needs a bow, and I found a very nice realistic one on the Marketplace for only 1L. It has both a scripted and nonscripted version in the box so you can save on scripts if you roleplay in a “write only” area, or if you roleplay in an area where GM weapons are used, simply use the GM version of the weapon. This “Deathrays’ simple bow” makes a nice prop and is easy to use. It was only 1L on the Marketplace!

If you are a photographer in Second Life, you might also want to stop by Lorien today and pick up the 10 pack of “Naughty Girl” poses that are out. I am showing you one from the pack that you can get today for just 30L. These are very nicely done and for only 30L that’s just 3L per pose!

A Girl and Her Bird 2

The last item I have to show you today is very special indeed. It’s nice to have a shoulder pet in rp, but realistic ones can be very expensive. Grizzly Creek currently has two on the marketplace that are FREE and fully functional with beautiful animations and movement.

I’m showing you the Cutthroat Finch but there is another beautiful bird you can pick up for FREE if you check out their store, as well as many other high quality pets for regular price. You might find yourself quite addicted to these gorgeous babies! This particular pet can be rezzed or worn, and is only 3 prim when rezzed! The shoulder pet itself is a low lag 6 scripts.

Lazy

Heyya FabFree!

Lazy

I’m being so lazy today and no one can stop me.  Or would that be start me…?  Anyway, I found some really nifty boots for us today. These are the ‘Vintage Cowboy Boots’ from Shine by ZD and they are the hidden free gift at the Swank event. You’ll have to hunt around the Shine booth but it’s well worth the effort. The details on these boots are fantastic. I see them becoming very popular in my wardrobe.

My lazy shopping day is rounded off by some Marketplace shopping. I found this super cute denim skirt from Millenaire for just 1L. The Jeans Skirt comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. There are several cute things on the Millenaire page and if they are all as nicely built as this skirt then I’m a fan.

Tropical Mornings

Tropical Mornings

I was in the mood to walk the beach this morning… but needed some proper attire. There was a group gift out at paper.arrow that I thought was perfectly fitting for such a walk and so I headed over to pick it up. This slip dress is yours FREE with your group tag. It comes in two versions — the one I am showing you in the picture above which has the mint top and flamingo skirt, or one with an all-over flamingo print.

This dress comes in Maitreya and Slink fits, and does not include an alpha layer (though I’m sure if you needed one, you could probably dig one up out of your inventory). The group fee is a one time cost of 250L, but you’ll find a wall full of past group gifts up at paper.arrow to pick up, as well as this pretty dress to make it worth joining.

I decided I was going to do some “rock hopping” instead of “sand walking” and so I really wanted some cute tennis shoes to finish off my look. Lindy Modern & Retro shoes did not let me down! For just 1L and a little hunting time, I found this pair of adorable pink tennis shoes at their main-store as part of the Beached Bunny Hunt 6. These shoes includes fits for classic, Slink flat, and Maitreya feet… so everyone wins out!

Not a Wall Flower

Not a Wall Flower

Call me old school if you will, but Casablanca is one of my favorite movies… right up there with Citizen Kane. So when I realized there was a Casablanca remake Sim in Second Life I knew I wanted to check it out. Loki got there before me, but my turn has long been overdue… I just hadn’t found the right outfit… until now.

The Moda Midnight Mania board locked down again yesterday, giving me another set of great FREE shoes for my slink feet. These heels are stunning and come in white with a hud to change the metal on the underside (gold, silver, or bronze). If you missed them when they locked down yesterday, they are there also again today, only in a slightly modified version… so they are worth locking down again today if you picked them up yesterday. I’ve heard a few people say they had some delivery issues. Not to worry, just hit the redelivery terminal and they will be sent to you!

And then I realized that I’d missed the June group gift for TBO The Beautiful Ones! But luckily it is still out! This Venus Dress in Turquoise is still out, though I’m not sure for how long. It comes in all your standard fitmesh sizes and also supports all the major mesh body types like Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza. It has a beautiful front, and equally dramatic back (with a plunging back… phew… sexy) and fits like a dream.

There are several ways you can pick up this stunner. If you are a group member (the group membership is 25L) the dress is yours FREE, just pay the terminal 1L and your 1L is immediately refunded and the dress is delivered to you. You can also opt to pay the special price of just 10L if you don’t have any group space, or wish to opt out of joining the group. OR if you are already a subscriber, you can click the subscriber and the dress will be delivered to you completely FREE, no group required. Note: this does not work for new subscriber members, you must have been a past subscriber, so this is a good reason to subscribe and stay a subscriber!

Not a Wall Flower 2

Though I admit that Casablanca the movie was in black and white… I always imagine it being a colorful world. When I saw this FREE group gift flower headpiece by Finesmith (the group is FREE to join), I knew I had to add it to my look… it just had the right feel to finish off what I wanted to feel (yes lots of feels in there right?). Because of course at Casablanca there can never really be any wall flowers… not really… or if they are, they are wall flowers in disguise, pretending to be wall flowers when they are really not. Or that’s somehow the way I imagine that world. “Play it again, Sam!”

In the Mood for Moda

In the Mood for Moda

The weather is warm, but the gifts are fabulous! Stop by NYU to pick up this gorgeous FREE SL Frees & Offers Group gift dress and get it while its hot! I admit, the back of this dress is my favorite part, which is why I’m showing it off to you! It has these great cut outs that are super cute!

This dress comes in all the standard mesh sizes, as well as Maitreya, Hourglass, and Physique fits. You’ll also get a nicely done alpha layer for standard bodies.

I also wanted to show you another great FREEBIE I’ve run across. I am loving Moda shoes. The group fee ended up being a bit more than I could personally afford (though if you can afford it, there are several group gifts out for your 1,000L group join) but I found that there was a daily Midnight Mania board that locks down at 400 slaps, and no group is required.

Now the thing is, the prize seems to change daily! So this is both is great because you literally can fill your shoe inventory… but I couldn’t show you the prize on the board today. This is the prize I picked up the other day. But you can definitely see the quality. The shoes fit Slink feet. So you can see why I love going over to Moda and slapping this FREE, no group required, Midnight Mania board for shoes!
