Are You a Good Girl?

Up From a Dream?

Are you a good girl?

It’s been a while since I posted a pretty free or low cost find for all of you amazing Fabfree Readers, and I’ve missed you! Real life has been pretty hectic for me this month. But I knew I had run across something special when I found this dress and pendant as part of the Good Girl or Bad Girl Hunt at Wicked.

You search for the little icon, buy it for just 2L and you get both this baby doll dress (which I think could double as a roleplay nightgown) and the beautiful glowing pendant. Somehow this ensemble gives me the impression that you could be either a good girl or a bad girl either one wearing it!

All the sizes you need in one box!

I was really pleased with the assortment of sizes this outfit came in. It is mesh (with a good alpha layer if you are still rocking your system body) but comes in lots of mesh body sizes as well. For your 2L spent at Wicked you’ll be getting:

  • Classic sizes XXS – L
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Psysique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya Isis, and Venus

Let’s Talk About L O V E

Snapshot_002

Hey FabFree! I am back real quick to share some more freebie news with you today!  I even grabbed Carson from his evening shopping run (which I am usually not allowed to interrupt) to come and show off a great new couples gift.  As you can see he is already planning his exit with his eye on the door… because …

Hello Tuesday is just for one day!

Carson had just picked up the  A&D Vest & Shirt at the Cosmopolitan Sim location for 50% off – priced only at 100L for today only.  There are plenty of other great stops on the sim with items either 50% off or priced at 50L, so have a stroll and check it out!  You might even see him there.

Stop in at Rowena’s Designs Too

Today as I was picking up the new Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Rowena’s Designs [freshly announced HERE], I noticed that they also had this sexy Gwen dress as a free SLF&O group gift!  This smoking hot dress comes with a texture change hud for several different colours and also includes several sizes for different body types.

Let’s Talk About Love

You know…  I’m a sucker for stuff with my name on it and when Carson saw the new group gift at Earthworx , he knew I had to have it.  Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Earthworx has put out a lovely decorative Floor Shelf with a potted glitter heart that comes in at just 6 prims.  The funny part was… after it was all set up, I noticed it had 3 couples dance animations in it!  The pose we are in is from one of the three animations.  What a sweet  bonus 🙂  This group is 25L to join.

Top Shelf

Lounging

Something worth celebrating.

Paisley Daisy has a beautiful January group gift out for the ladies… a purple celebration suit! And I couldn’t pass it up. This one piece dress suit in all the standard sizes (with an excellent alpha layer if you’re still using your system body) is pure magic. It is highly detailed and the texture is amazing, with a shimmer and glimmer that is simply unique and beautiful. The Paisley Daisy group fee is 100L, but you’ll get amazing monthly group gifts just like this one to add to your wardrobe, making it well worth the Linden in my opinion.

What’s on the shelf?

I decided to do a little decorating this morning and was pleased to make away with a free shelf from Cwtch! They have out their Calon Lan Shelf & Decor (it’s all one piece) free for FabFree group members. Just wear your FabFree group tag and pick up this lovely gift.

The shelf is only 4 prim total and includes everything you see in the picture. My head is hiding the two of the lovely picture frames (there are 3 total) that allow you to add your own textures/pictures to them just by dragging and dropping pictures from your inventory to the frame. It was easy peasy! This lovely shelf will be a welcome (free) addition to your home!

A Silver Vision

Midnight Lake_001

Fishing for my own silver.

I saw that Love was fishing for silver and got silver envy. In her post here she showed you one of the great gifts you can currently get from Sn@tch if you go 7 Seas fishing with your fishing pole for the New Years Grab Bag (hurry you still have a little bit of time, but not much). And it got me hankering for some silver of my own!

It all started with bubbles.

It all started with some bubbles. Actually #bubbles the store. I saw their advertisement for their January group gift and really fell in love with the unique split front top. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. It is in a lovely grey shade with black crochet detailing along the split seam.

Sizes it comes in:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

I also snagged a deal on some silver shoes for just 1L at Lindy Modern & Retro Shoes… and I love that these shoes are so versatile because not only do they fit slink feet, but the package includes shoes to fit regular system feet and Maitreya feet as well. So I didn’t have to worry about fit at all! My silver shoes are part of the Frosting Hunt. You have until January 31st to pick them up, but why wait? For just 1L and a little hunting time, these flats are the silver lining you’ve been waiting for!

Midnight Lake_002

The final touch.

Finesmith is no longer in-world, sadly. But you can still get many of the beautiful creations on the marketplace. I was doing some marketplace hunting and came across a lovely necklace for just 10L that I couldn’t pass up. This Vision necklace pictured above is by Finesmith jewelry and with its beautiful details and shine (but not bling) is a wonderful final touch to any outfit – casual or formal. It’s well worth the 10L.

A Vintage Stroll

Vintage_001

It’s not cold everywhere.

There are still parts of this world that have warm weather… and I decided to take a warmer weather stroll. I was missing flowers and sunshine amidst all the snow. I found a garden sim with roses, vintage bikes and vases, and took a walk in my brand new January gift from BYRNE. You’ll definitely want to pick this one up. The group is free to join and the gift is free too. You’ll get the jacket and the skirt (two separate pieces) and quality alphas to go with them.

Sizes Included:

  • The Jacket: standard mesh sizes XS – XL
  • The Skirt: Fitmesh XS – XL, as well as a Maitreya fit

Vintage_002

A finishing touch.

Chop Zuey has generously set out a gift just for FabFree group members. Since the Fabulously Free in SL group is free to join, this gift is free as well, and it matched my new dress from BYRNE just perfectly. So I stopped by Chop Zuey to pick up the Love Knot Set. It includes the beautiful heart choker necklace shown above as well as a pair of matching earrings that are hidden in my hair. These are easily resizable to fit any avatar. You’ll find this gift where the other Chop Zuey gifts are.

It’s Chilly Outside!

Cold Morning

It’s chilly outside!

Brrrr… it’s cold outside! There’s even virtual ice on the pond I’m standing next to though I managed to get out of the snow by standing under a tree. Thankfully, my FREE New Year’s gift to BlackRose group members (the group is FREE to join) is keeping me warm and toasty! Don’t you love this red mesh coat! It even includes the gorgeous black neck cowl detailing and the tie at the waist!

This beauty comes in all the standard sizes, as well as a fitted mesh size, and a good quality alpha layer for standard bodies. You’ll find it at the entrance of the store, setting at a side table. Hurry and grab up this beautiful gift!

It’s perfect for dancing the night away!

Old World Style

Old Town_001

A little old world style.

I’m gearing up for the first of the year, but first I’m enjoying a bit of old world traditions. I found a Christmas gift that is still out that you’ll want to snag before it disappears that made me feel stylish enough to go out and enjoy feeding the birds at a location that reminded me of such pleasures.

The gold is the thing.

This gold dress by Orquidea is mesh with split sides and beautiful detailing. It’s not quite glitter or sequins, but it has enough shimmer to make it beautiful in any setting. Join the group for a tiny 10L and you can pick it up free under the Christmas tree. There was also a regular monthly group gift out that you could pick up as well. It includes all the standard mesh sizes and a good quality alpha for standard bodies.

Old Town_002

In the details.

I stopped by Genre, and like most events right now, you can pick up gifts. The Sn@tch booth had a little bag set out that you could buy for 0L and this classic black cloche hat and these gold spiral earrings were inside… yours as a free gift. They matched my new gown perfectly and I knew I had to take them home. There were lots of other booths with goodies set out for you to pick up for FREE, so it’s well worth the trip. Hurry before you miss the treats!

Snowbound

Snowbound

Wishing you a happy holiday.

With all the festive blog posts everyone else was doing, I had to do one of my own… so I put together this snowbound look that can be yours for a total of just 1L. You’ll only need to make two stops to get it all put together.

The dress.

I picked up this dress from Karla Boutique. It includes the miniskirt, the poncho, and the resizable hat. Just go inside the store and buy the gift for 1L and it is yours!

Sizes included.

For the Skirt:

  • Standard fitmesh sizes XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Venus, Isis, & Freya

For the Poncho: Standard mesh sizes XS – L

A girl always needs shoes.

I picked up these beautiful boots (which I think match my outfit perfectly) from MOoh! at the current round of the Designer’s Circle. This round lasts until January 7th, so you have some time, but who would want to wait when these shoes are Free? Just pay 0L for the box and these beautiful boots are yours!

They are mesh and don’t require any special feet. I found that when I removed my mesh feet they were a perfect fit and looked really nice.

Bitter Berries

Bitter BerriesWell Hello There Fab Free’rs! I had so much fun “elfing things up” (as Carson put it) in my last post that I thought I’d give it a second go. I really do love these LODE gachas, and the Orquidea cart at The Wash’s Cart Sale gave me the perfect excuse to wear more of the gacha goodness from LODE. Needless to say I’m excited to share these inexpensive finds with you. Also, if by chance I am not back here before the holidays, I hope each of you has a wonderful winter holiday, no matter what you celebrate! ❤

LODE Bitter Berries 

So once again, I spent more money than I should have playing the gacha machines at LODE. Thankfully they are just 60 lindens per play. The gorgeous headpiece Pru is wearing and the pretty matching ring are both from the Bitter Berries gacha machine at the LODE flagship store. Along with these beautiful accessories, you’ll find additional equally gorgeous pieces to be won. One thing I can honestly say is that I’m never disappointed in the quality and detail in the items I’ve bought at LODE, these are more than worth the 60 lindens.

Bitter Berries 1Orquidea at The Cart Sale 

As I am certain you’ve noticed, the winter round of The Cart Sale at The Wash has begun and there are some Fabulous finds to be had. I took a stroll through yesterday and picked up several things personally. This beautiful burgundy colored dress is one of several 10 linden items at the Orquidea cart. There is a green version available as well, and I don’t mind telling you I had a hard time deciding which color to share with you. The dress comes in standard mesh sizes and also includes a matching beret (not shown).  Along with this pretty wool dress, there are several jewelry and accessory type items at the Orquidea cart.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
