“Bee” Beautiful

Flowers and the Bees_002

“Be” Beautiful!

I love the message on the group gift I found for you today! “Be your own kind of beautiful” is just the kind of message we all need to hear now and then as a lovely reminder 🙂

I picked up this pretty dress at GeMyles as a Fitmesh Fantatics Group Gift. You just need to be a member of the Fitmesh Fantatics Group (the group is free to join) and stop by the GeMyles main-store to nab up this pretty dress for free! It comes in fitmesh sizes XS – XL.

More “Bees” please!

Not only are we “Being” beautiful but I have a “bee” and flower gift to show off that is simply stunning! I showed you the latest Meva group gift in my post here and mentioned that there were 9 total group gifts out to be had. I wanted to show off some of the others and decided that this beautiful bento ring set was perfect with my outfit!

These rings are made to fit bento Maitreya hands and you get a Daisy and a Bee for your right and left hands. The group is 100L to join, but remember, there are currently 9 group gifts out to be had for your join fee!

Flowers Too.

Flowers_001

Flowers have a way of cheering me up. And I love applier clothing. And when I ran across a chance to use both in a post, I was very happy!

Dressed in Red

I was perusing the list of stores for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt and ran across JellyRoll on the list. You might remember my post here that showed you some great free gifts from that store. I just knew I had to find out what they had out as their hunt gift!

JellyRoll did not let me down! Their 5L hunt gift for the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is the beautiful red silk dress shown above. You get an omega applier that applies the top and bottom layer and then a mesh skirt panel that comes in all the standard sizes for a perfect sleek fit. It’s simply stunning!

Flowers too

NSP Florals put out an August group gift that was too pretty to pass up. If you missed it, I blogged the July group gift here. So though there is a 125L group join fee, you’ll be getting beautiful monthly group gifts to make it worth joining. This month was the Delphinium Bouquet.

In your gift package you’ll get two bouquets… one with and one without a hold animation. For my picture I used the bouquet without the animation and used a pose I already had. However, the bouquet with the hold animation is very nice and the hold animation works well with most Animation Over-rides as far as I can tell (I tried it out with several of mine including Oracul and Vista). This is a gift well worth picking up!

These Boots Were Made for Walking

These Boots Were Made for Walking

These boots were made for walking! And for FREE too! You’ll want these boots too! All you need to do is slap the Midnight Mania board at ECRU and these fitmesh thigh high boots can be yours! The board locks down at 250 slaps and at midnight the prize will be delivered. In the package is two colors: rose (shown) and crimson (not shown); as well as fits for Maitreya, Freya, Isis, Venus, Hourglass, and Physique mesh bodies. They also include an alpha if you need it.

I paired my snazzy new boots with a 10L dress from Entice at the Cart Wash Sale. This is “Love Me Harder.” It also comes with a jacket, which I left off, but the jacket is equally cute and sexy. Love Me Harder comes in all the standard mesh sizes.

Don’t forget about Ecco‘s temporary store closing tonight! I’m sporting a past group gift — these beautiful pearls, as a reminder. Plus, everything in the store is 75L. The store will close temporarily sometime this evening though before reopening later at its new location. Don’t miss your chance at some great deals!

Sweater Weather!

Sweater WeatherFollowing the brightly colored leaves of fall comes the cold crisp breeze of winter; and my favorite season for fashion, which I like to call Sweater Weather! I know we are still in the midst of fall, and I’m not discounting the season, but I can feel the coming of winter and I can’t help but be excited. That being said, BYRNE recently sent out her November group gift to the BYRNE Style group, and it is this warm and cozy cowl-neck sweater dress. If you are not already a member of the group, the group is FREE to join. Check the past notices and you’ll find this sweater dress, and another group gift just for the guys! The sweater dress comes in two colors, red (shown), and blue, each with standard mesh sizes. I took a close-up of the sweater so you could better see the playful sugar skull pattern that makes this sweater so unique and beautiful. Remember, notices only stay available for 14 days, so don’t hesitate to join the group and score this beautiful gift.

Trick or Treat

Okay, gang… this one is gonna be fast!

Trick or Treat

Lazy Sunday is a nifty little sale that runs all day Sunday ( well, yeah) until midnight SLT. Everything is 75L or under. Sometimes way under. This week I found the perfect Trick or Treat outfit from Ecru. This is the Cassandra dress and it’s the Lazy Sunday offering for just 75L1 I had popped over to grab the dress when I saw that these ‘Desire’ boots right nest to the dress. Of course, I fell in love! Then I saw they are only 60L as part of the 60L Weekend sale! Even better!

Then I ran over to Nantra Poses and picked up the perfect pose! This is part of the ‘Trick or Treat’ six pose set. Each pose comes with a cute little pumpkin candy bucket too!

Oh, and you might recognize my witchy hat and hair. Glimmer showed you Magika’s Sorcery here. Happily, you can purchase other colors for the hair from Magika’s ‘Darkness Falls’ style.

Don’t let today slip away before you check it all out!

Formal… with a chance of dragons

Hello and happy Tuesday, my FabFree folks!

tiffanyjpg_001

After several posts of cute and casual, I was starting to feel the need to remind myself what classy and elegant felt like. And as luck would have it. I found just the thing while I was shopping, of all places…. the Thrift Shop. If you haven’t been ‘in the know’, the Thrift Shop is a regular event and this round began on August 8th and runs until August 29th. That’s 22 days of 50% ( or so ) off the gathered designers and two massive rows of Gacha machines for us addicts.

I found this gorgeous purple evening gown in Tiffany’s Designs’ booth not for 50% off… but for FREE. This is the Lavish Mesh dress in purple and it’s free for everyone, no group needed. You get the five standard sizes and all this elegance.

The other thing I had to have from the Thrift Shop was this wonderful little dragon ear cuff. I hesitated to show him off with such a formal dress then I thought, yeah… that’s something I’d wear together in real life…. ‘Cause you know, you can’t get too stuffy when you’re going formal. 😉

This is the ‘Dragovar Ear Cuff’ from Ecru and he is only 10L at the Thrift Shop. The little dragon comes with both a right ear and a left ear version and a HUD with eight metallic colors. He is clearly meant to be worn with ‘human’ type ears but a little futzing with the edit controls and I had him fit to my own pointy ears easily enough. I have a feeling I won’t be taking him off any time soon.

You have until the 29 of August to go check out the Thrift Shop so don’t delay!
