Come Away With Me

Before I fly away aboard an airplane to anywhere, I want to share this cute and seriously inexpensive outfit I picked up at Petry Model Store. There’s nothing like a cute new outfit. New clothes make already fun things seem extra fun. The dress and shoes are both group gifts for 2 different groups, and both are at the Petry Model Store main location. You’ll find them waiting, along with quite a few others, just inside the entrance and to the left.

The Dress – This cute tube dress by Petry Model Store is equal parts sexy and casual. How that’s possible, I’m not sure, but it works. The dress is a free group gift for the Mesh Body Friends group. The Mesh Body Friends group is free to join. This gift comes in a few sizes and in the mauve pink color shown.

They are free for the AUG group members. The AUG group is just 10 linden to join. These strappy shoes come with a color change hud that has quite a few color choices.

Normal People


Normal People Scare Me

Hello hello Fab Free! Welcome back to the blog. As much as the saying on this shirt makes me giggle, I really don’t believe in normal. It’s all just relative. So before I jump in to telling you about this awesome new gacha set by Oubliette, and a cool new group gift hairstyle by Pink Hustler, I’ll present to you a quote I’ve always liked.

“What is normal to the spider is chaos to the fly.” – Charles Addams

The Outfit – Yep, you read that right, I said the gacha word. That means this too cool cami style top and the even cooler shorts are part of a super cool set that you won’t want to miss. Oubliette has their Neo Witch gacha set out at Gachaland. This gacha is just 50 lindens per pull. There are 10 commons and 1 rare, along with 1 event exclusive gift awarded after 20 pulls. Each piece comes in several sizes. I’ve included a copy of the gacha key below so you can get a look at all the goodies.

Image may contain: 3 people, people standing and text

The Hair – One of Pink Hustler’s group gifts is this shaggy mid-length hairstyle that I’m kind of in love with. The gift includes a color hud with what I’d call an “essentials” variety of color choices. To get your copy of this group gift hairstyle, you’ll need to join the Pink Hustler group. There are quite a few group gifts available, including hairstyles, mesh/bento nails, and a few other clothing/accessory items. The Pink Hustler group has a hefty, but worth it join fee of 500 linden.

Here are the details:

Spring Swing & Coffee Things


Here Comes The Sun

Hello hello Fab Free! So the Spring Cart Sale at The Wash is in full bloom. Did you see what I did there? Punny right! I’m full of good humor today. No really, it’s been a great day, and I hope your day has been just as awesome. I’m about to make things a little more awesome by sharing with you a few fabulous finds at the afore mentioned Cart Sale. For this post I picked up an inexpensive item at the Kitty Creations Cart, and a couple of equally budget friendly items at Totally Random’s Cart.

Swings and Flowers and Things – I love when a product includes all the things. This Cart Sale find by Kitty Creations is just that, it includes the garden swing, the tree with twinkle lights, the garden shrubs, and the pretty spring flowers. Also, the garden swing is set up with solo his and hers poses, couples poses, and even a few sweet slow dances. You can get this garden set by Kitty Creations at their Spring Cart Sale Cart for just 25 linden.

Ode to Coffee
But First Coffee – I’m one of those that can and often does drink coffee at any time of day. It’s not just a morning beverage in my world. I like the way it tastes, the way it smells, and even the sounds my coffee pot makes as it percolates. That said, when I saw these coffee themed clothing items at the Totally Random Cart, they had to be mine. The top is very cute, it ties under the arms which is a little detail that really makes the shirt. It comes in several sizes and is just 25 linden. Also at the Totally Random Cart are these cute matching chucks. They are unrigged mesh so you can resize them, which means just about anyone could wear these. The shoes are also 25 linden.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

Unforgettable


Late Night

Hello Fab Free’rs! I feel like I can almost taste the weekend inching nearer, I’m ready. This look is a definite weekend night out look, and it’s all thanks to free group gifts from Beautiful Dirty Rich, and Canimal. The dress is one of two new group gifts out at Beautiful Dirty Rich, and the hoop earrings are an older still available gift at Canimal. I personally just really liked how the two gifts look together. I hope you do too.

The Dress – I don’t mind admitting I’m having a hard time finding the words to express how much I genuinely love this group gift dress at Beautiful Dirty Rich. With this free group gift you’ll get the dress in quite a few sizes, and a texture change hud. Let me just say this hud is not only user friendly, I love all the options it gives. There are 12 pattern options for the main part of the dress, and 12 solid color choices. Each dress texture has a set of matching color choices for the metal bits, and the laces. There are also 8 additional textures for the metal parts, and the hud gives you the ability to tint the individual parts and save up-to 8 tint colors for future use. As if things couldn’t get any better, the Beautiful Dirty Rich group is also free to join, and this fabulous gift isn’t the only group gift currently available. There are several previous group gifts still out for grabs.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)


Queen

The Earrings – Sometimes hoop earrings really are the answer to your jewelry woes. I’ve actually been looking for the right outfit to wear these group gift earrings by Canimal for a while now. Though they are not a terribly recent gift, they are still available. This free group gift includes 9 pairs of earrings, each with a different word in the center of the hoops. Also included is a color change hud that lets you pick from 12 preset colors. The Canimal store group is also free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available. You’ll find these hoops on the second floor to the left of the lucky letter boards.

Two if By Sea


Two if by Sea

Captain’s Log: The Nineteenth of March, Year Unknown
My Co-Captain and I set sail for an uncharted destination just a few days ago. Today, for the first time, we found land. Our steam ship ran aground in an unfamiliar location. Where, or even when our time travels have brought us, we cannot be certain. All that is certain is that we found our adventure, and we look absolutely smashing while doing so.

Hello Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog, I promise you haven’t stumbled over a strange steam punk novella. I was just having a little fun with some of the fantastic Seam Hunt prizes my guy and I gathered. His hat, and our amazing jackets are free Seam Hunt prizes. In addition to the hunt freebies, I picked up an incredibly detailed free steam paddle boat that was just too cool to not share with you. I hope you enjoy these fabulous finds, and maybe even go on an adventure or two of your own.

The Hat – I think bowler style hats are really cool for steam punk attire. This particular Steam Hunt gift hat by Miss Darcy has some extra steamy details, both literally and figuratively. This cool hat has a “steam” effect that comes from the wheel handle on top of the hat when worn, not to mention the goggles which complete the look. You have until March 31st to hunt down the little brown cog and claim your free gift.

The Coat – I still cannot get over the gorgeous details of these tailcoats by Contraption. This coat comes in male and female mesh sizes, and includes a cummerbund applier, as well as a system layer cummerbund. Additionally there is a color change hud that lets you change the color of the ascot/scarf and the little pin in the center of the scarf. Lastly, each of the sizes has an additional “bound” option for a corseted look. The best part is that this highly detailed piece is Contraption’s free Steam Hunt prize.

Sizes Included: Belleza Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Slink Male, Signature (Geralt, Gianni), Belleza Jake

The Spirit of Adventure

The Steam Paddle Boat – Believe it or not this ultra cool vessel is not only completely free, it has full permissions. I stumbled across this awesome freebie while exploring sims. This free boat can be found at the Alpha Tribe sim. Simply pay the boat 0 linden and you’ll find a copy of it in the objects folder of your inventory. Along with being cool to look at, this steam paddle boat has some animated parts, and 2 sit poses. There is a single pose at the steering wheel, and one up top at the organ. Lastly, since this freebie has full permissions, you can customize it however you like.

P.S. If you dig Blue’s waxed mustache, it’s a freebie too! You can pick it up for free at Kauna. Afterall, dapper gentleman would be complete without one.

Here are the details, may you have happy adventures!
