FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Nothing sexier than a love of books.

Happy, happy Thursday everyone! I was afraid I might not make it in time this week, as I am having a few issues with my internet provider, but as you can see, I toughed it out and have some great things to show you. I like to call this my hot Librarian look ;) .


It all started when I was browsing through the notices in our very own FabFree group in world. I opened the notice from Braham Design, and they had this super cute pants suit group gift. The Ria outfit is free for Braham Design group members, and that group is free to join. The gift consists of mesh pants, a mesh shirt, and a mesh jacket. All pieces come in the standard sizes, and are meant to be worn together, with alpha’s provided to go without the jacket if you’d like. However, they will work separately as well, and since these pieces are all classics, they are for sure going to be staples in my wardrobe. library4

Naturally, I needed shoes. Now, I will admit, the shoes I went with, are highly unpractical for a real Librarian…luckily for me, this is SL, and all shoes are super-comfy *grins*. OK, so, I decided to stop at Shey’s, as I had heard a lot about them, but had not been. Well, I’ve been missing out. In the building labelled Shey Days, there are so many awesome deals, as well as group gifts…I couldn’t help but load up. I picked out the super-glam Trio Q Stilettos. They are for SLink high feet, and as seen in the picture, have a HUD with so many texture options. I had a hard time choosing colours for myself. Red and gold are a classic combination, and go so nicely with black…I think I have a winner. These beauties will set you back a piddly L$30.


I did mention group gifts from Shey, and how fortunate that one of these group gifts totally worked with my look. The simplistic beauty of the Kos Jewelry set, which includes a necklace, earrings, and a bracelet, are a perfect complement for my outfit. As I said, they are a free group gift, the group is free to join, and are actually included in a big grouping of jewelry. So even if this style is not working for you, there are several other pieces included in the group that you are bound to love. Oh, and don’t forget to grab all the other group gifts as well…let me just say…boots. library2

The last piece I wanted to share with you, is from Maxi Gossamer, and as so many of her jewelry pieces are, it is a statement piece! The gorgeous ring on my right hand is called Ketama, and is the current free group gift. The group is still free to join. You get 2 rings in this gift. a small version for your left hand, and this larger, eye-catching version for your right. Both rings are texture change through clicking on the ring itself, with metal options of gold or silver for each of the stone choices. I think it was the perfect final touch to this sexy Librarian.

OK Fabbies. I think I have done my job for the day. I have to admit, this is one of my favourite outfits I’ve put together, and I am going to get a lot of wear out of it. What can I say, I love looking good, for a good book ;) . I hope you all have a great week, and I will see you all back here next Thursday. Until then, TTFN!

Last Lucid Dreams of a Sweet Summer

Summer has passed into fall… but my last lucid dreams of summer have not yet quite faded. And thanks to the final days of the Women’s Stuff Hunt, you too can relive the final dreamer’s dreams of evening stars and soft flowers. With the hunting closing down on September 30th, though, you’ll want to hurry if you are going to find any gifts from your favorite stores.

Last Lucid Dream of Sweet Summer

I love the chance to pick up new poses — especially those with ‘ready made scenes’ such as this “Lucid Dream” scene by Come Soon Poses. It includes all the lovely props, the single pose for your avatar (as shown above), plus the pink heart balloons that are just flying away out of Astrid’s hands (which you can’t see in the picture). This is a completely FREE gift from Come Soon Poses as part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt and well worth the searching for the die hard photographer (and for the rest of us too)!

Speaking of FREE gifts… check out my spunky skirt and sexy slip-on tube top from Sweet Temptations called September Morning! This is the September Group Gift from their main store and you can pick it up FREE with your Group tag until the end of the month. The group is FREE to join and there are only a few days left in September, so swing by and pick it up quick! The skirt is mesh and comes in all the standard sizes, while the top comes in system layers as well as a variety of applier huds for mesh bodies.

Astrid’s fantastic purse is perfect for any casual or fun occasion and has a hold animation that works great with your AO and any other pose. It’s another one you’ll need to run to hunt for before the end of the month as it is part of the Women’s Stuff Hunt and is the 1L Hunt Gift offering from Pixel Perfect Productions called Give a Hoot Purse. And it’s a hoot if I don’t say so myself!

Last Lucid Dream of Sweet Summer [2]

I love trying on new skins and as I was doing my run through the Women’s Stuff Hunt, I found this ‘New-to-Me’ Skin store called LoveMe skins. Their Hunt Prize is this lovely skin in Sunkiss called Jessica. Once you find the little red shirt, the skin is yours for just 1L and includes a cleavage layer as well.

Now the Hunt gift does not include any appliers; however, there is a group gift up in the store as well. The group gift is FREE and the group is FREE to join and if you pick up the group gift it includes Slink hands and feet appliers (all skin tones included) so you’ll have those — very generous of the creator I think! That will give you two new skins plus the Slink appliers for your visit. You can also purchase any other additional appliers you may decide you need while at the store.

Last, but certainly not least, Astrid is sporting an elegant but every day set of jewelry that I think is a perfect transition from summer to fall — summery colors in a fall design! I love this Wine Autumn Leaves Jewelry Set by Cog & Fleur which is their Women’s Stuff Hunt Gift contribution and yours if you find the little red T-shirt for just 1L! Don’t miss out on the chance to add this dandy to your jewelry box!


Here’s how you can transition dreamily from summer to fall…

The Wash Cart Sale – [R]uckus

Hello again! As we creep closer and closer to the end of another fabulous Wash Cart Sale, I couldn’t help but show you all one last great L$10 item. This time, it’s from the [R]uckus cart, Direct TP.

ruckus1This cute, off-the shoulder, heart decal t-shirt I am wearing is called the Loose Heart Shirt. It is mesh, in the standard sizes, and comes with a colour change HUD to change the shirt colour to any of the 6 colour choices. I went with classic white. I made sure to get a closer shot of the shirt itself so you all can see it better. It really is perfect for a more casual, jeans wearing, type look. ruckus2

Here’s a shot of the cart, so you can see the other items they have available, including some stuff for the guys! You only have until the 16th to grab this shirt and other items, so do not wait!!!

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale – Rowena’s Designs

The Bi Annual Wash Cart Sale is now in full swing!


There are so many nifty things this round that I can hardly pick what to show off first! I picked Rowena’s Designs lovely ‘Lilian’ complete set because it just is so stunning. Plus it’s not often I see an entire set that I love every single piece like this one. I’m wearing the Lilian Dress in the five Mesh sizes, plus the shoes for SLink High Feet plus the jewelry set. So that’s just 30L for an entire evening outfit! The jewelry set is a particular bargain, you get the ring, the bracelet, the necklace and the earrings AND a Hud to change up the metal, the accent color and the gem stones.  Both the dress and the shoes come with a color change HUD with six options. This is a LOT of outfit for very little out of pocket.

Wonderful Wednesday

Good Morning, FabFree Folks! We’ve made it half way to the weekend! That deserves a little pat on the back and a reward of some kind. Don’t you think? And what better reward than a round or two on a Gacha machine!


This is the Natsu collection from Amaz’s in the Sahara’s main store. There is a lovely range of colors for the handbags, shoes and dresses. Everything from bold black print to soft pastels. The handbags do not have poses so they won’t interfere with your AOs, the shoes are for system feet, plus the dresses are fit mesh with an alpha. This collection really is for every ‘body’. And at only 40L per play, you can collect a bunch!

Flowers on Friday

Snapshot_013Happy Friday everyone!!   Yep… I have two posts for you today.  Mostly because the first one was supposed to go up yesterday alas I didn’t get it done in time, and also because I wanted to share some exclusive to today news!

If you haven’t checked the Fifty Linden Friday list yet, you really should!  The list this week is killer :)   If you are not familiar with Fifty Linden Friday, it is a weekly event that happens every Friday in which 10 or so rotating shops offer one or two items each at 50L for the day located at their respective mainstores.  In my photo I am displaying the following participating items:

  •  Glam Affair:  Glam Affair is offering two skins today for just 50L.  The skin I am in today, which is Summer V3 (Jamaica) and an additional skin called Katra Polar August.  These skins come with several different eyebrow and eyebrow shaper options.
  •  C’est La Vie:  The Serry Bag is available, complete with a texture change hud so you can match it up to whatever you are wearing.
  •  Fri.Day:  You’ll find the Effy Sandals on sale for 50L today, and as a bonus you’ll get them in not just one colour but two (steel as shown and dust).
  •  Elikatira:  The Elodie mesh hairstyle is available today for FLF, including the exclusives colour hud which allows for tons of shade variety.

You can find a complete listing in the Fifty Linden Friday inworld group which you can join by hitting the FLF sign at any of the four participating shops I have mentioned today.  It’s free to join, and then you’ll get the future week’s offerings via notice :).

If these 50L delights were not news enough for you, you will be happy to hear that my Haler Loose Dress is available as a free group gift along with a wide variety of other gifts at Black Rose!

Have a great weekend!

What’s Black and White and Read all over…

….why, my blog post of course? *Waits for the groans to subside* Well, happy Thursday everyone! Trust me, my bad joke is not in vain, as this week, my blog post really is black and white…with a little bit of RED all over. I’m channeling my inner rockabilly, black and white movie star this week, both literally, and figuratively.

B&W1It all started with my dress. Before I go on, let me start by saying I got all my fabulous finds on the Marketplace, kinda. I’ll explain what the kinda means, a little bit later. Close-ups of each item are in the collage below. Oh yes, back to the dress. This gorgeous, retro coat/dress is from Angel DELUXE, and you can find it HERE on the Marketplace, for only L$9. It’s called the Poablack Rockabilly Coat, and it’s kind of like a wearable demo, except you can also get a demo for free if you’d like to try it on first. There are other versions of this beauty available, just not for the sweet L$9 price! It is mesh, and fits the standard sizes :)

My next retro-esque item is from [BE]lieve, and it is these sexy red heels I am sporting. When I saw the polka dots, while scrolling through pages and pages of shoes, I knew these were the ones. The aptly named Red Spiked Bow Heels are for SLink mid feet, and are non-rigged mesh, so you adjust their positioning if need be. I think they are a steal at only L$20, and the Marketplace link for them, is HERE. As an aside, the listing for these shoes says they are a 24hr promo only…but, I got them on Aug 5th, and as of today, they are still the same price. So they might be a permanent promo, or it’s just taking the creator awhile to change the price again, and if that’s the case, don’t wait to grab them if you love them like I do! I mean come on….spiked bows!

The last item I am featuring is my beautiful grey-toned skin. Now, this is where the ‘kinda’ comes in. You can find the lovely Film Noir Dame skin from Oddment on the Marketplace for a small sum of L$30 HERE. In the interest of full disclosure…I have actually had this skin in my inventory for many, many years, almost as long as I’ve been in SL. Do not let this persuade you that the skin is old and outdated…even after all this time, it is still beautiful. So no, there are not any appliers provided, however, a grey-tone is super easy to match, trust me! I almost did not need to use the ankle and wrist tattoo layers to blend my hands and feet, they were so easily matched. I have gotten a lot of wear out of Ms. Film Noir, and was super excited to see it still available, when I just happened across it recently, in a random search on Marketplace. Hooray!


With a few more added touches (a few FabFreely priced, L$75 or under) to complete my outfit, I think I totally rocked my rockabilly/retro tv movie star look! Don’t you? How lucky was I to find a red phone booth for my main picture? LOL. With the fogginess of the W/L setting I chose, I felt like I was in a horror movie, with a monster, or zombie ready to pop out from behind the booth at any second! OK, now I need popcorn, this sounds like a great movie night! *grins*

OK lovelies, that is it for my post this week. I already have some thoughts in mind for next weeks post, so you keep an eye out next Thursday! Until then, TTFN.

One wrong turn…there’s no fiesta in Kowloon!

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope your week has been going by as easily as mine has been. I have to admit, I couldn’t wait for today, as I really, really wanted to share my gorgeous outfit with you. Don’t you just love when you put together a look and everything works so well together that you just want to IM all your friends and go out and party so you can show off? I wanted to find a nice Mexican fiesta, but took a wrong turn and ended up in the neon lit streets of Kowloon. Not really a party place, but it made for a nice backdrop for my pics. I guess I better just get to it and show you what I put together eh?


It all started with my dress. A friend of mine reminded me of the store AZUL, and how generous they are with putting out a new free group gift every month while leaving some of the older gifts out. I grabbed all of the most recent, fully intending to show you this months offer, until I put on May’s gift. The super sexy, black and white, mesh dress is a show stopper. With its ultra low back, longer-in the back skirt hem, and cute ruffle around the bum, without revealing too much skin, it is a perfect party dress. It comes in all the usual mesh sizes, so everyone should be happy. The AZUL group is free to join, and as I mentioned already, there are several of the past group gifts still out for you to pick up. I have to include a back shot, you understand, right?


The next logical step in putting my look together…the shoes! Lucky for me, I found the perfect pair while looking around at this weeks round of fi*Friday. First, I want to say how much I love that each fi*Friday round lasts for the whole week, so that even though I post on Thursdays, I can show you something from the current round and it will still be there until tomorrow! OK, onto the shoes. When you buy the Raisa Pumps from Wayne, for SLink high feet, you actually get 4 separate pairs. 2 versions with ankle straps and 2 versions without. What’s even better, they come with 2 colour change huds, one that has gold for the metal accents, and the other is silver. These huds have 20 different colours to choose from. So….if you do the math (and I hope I’ve done it correctly) that is a total of 160 pairs of shoes. Yup…160!! Oh, and they are materials enabled to boot! That gorgeous sheen on all of my pictures is not just a baked texture. All of that, for only L$55…how could I say no. You have until midnight tonight, and then this round of fi*Friday switches over to the new round, so do not wait too long to go grab these.


Lastly, as I had mentioned that my outfit was making me feel like finding a fiesta…I needed a tropical touch, and it needed to be red to play off of the red I chose for my shoes. Deciding that what I needed was a flower for my hair, I hopped onto the Marketplace to search. I came across the Springtime Hair Flower from AviCandy, that included a 9 different colours of flower, for only L$49. I went with the brights pack to get the red I wanted, but there are 2 other colour variation packs available, so you are sure to find one to match whatever you may be wearing. With as detailed and realistic as these flowers are…you may just want to put together a whole outfit with them as the starter!


Well…I never did find my party, but that’s ok, as I looked fabulous anyways. I’ll just tune into a salsa music station and make my own party :) Alright lovelies, that is it for me. I will see you all again, same time next week. Until then…TTFN *salsa’s out of the building*
