If I Cannot Fly Let Me Sing

Green Finch & Linnet Bird
Hello Fab Free’rs! If you haven’t been to the current round of the Redeux Event, you need to go. This round will end in a few days and there are tons of free gifts. Each of the participating designers has a free gift set out. You’ll find clothing, and decor, and everything in between! All you need to do is join the free-to-join Redeux VIP group. Once you’re wearing your Redeux tag, you can click the gift bags at each booth and your free gift will be sent to you. So of course I picked a few I really liked to show you. It was actually really hard to pick just these four items, there are so many awesome gifts. I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Horns – Of course I picked horns as one of the free Redeux gifts to share with you! These pretty horns with the little flowers are by Evil in the Box. They come in 5 color variations and can be resized.

The Choker – This beaded choker with a cross charm by Vibes is beautifully detailed. It is their free gift at Redeux. The choker has resize scripts for easy fitting, and comes with a color change hud that lets you change various parts of the choker using several preset color choices.

The Dress – I know you can’t see the full dress in the photo, but this pretty teal gown by Faida is floor-length. I thought the yellow gold embellishment on the front made it look a bit regal. The dress is Faida’s free gift at Redeux. It comes in a single mesh size.

The Tattoos – Finally, the beautiful tattoos on Pru’s arms are the free Redeux gift from Iron & Rose.  They come in 3 variations, fresh, faded, and worn. Each one is a separate Omega Applier.

Here are the details, enjoy!

How We Roll

How We Roll

So I was unpacking some more of my awesome Redeux gifts and realized that TODAY is the last day of the event. I couldn’t resist showing you one more quick look with some of the gifts that I picked up there – specifically this necklace, top, and skirt. Don’t they look great together? And they’re all free! But don’t look too long, because Redeux ends TODAY.

Redeux, redeux

This event has already gotten quite a bit of coverage on FabFree, but that’s because there are so many great gifts. Most recently, Serena blogged it here and she’s got links on that post to the other times it’s been blogged. Links within links, it’s like the movie Inception up in here.

When you get to Redeux makes sure you join the free Redeux VIP group so you can pick up all your gifts. Oh and did I mention that it ends TODAY?

Love and Hate_002

New glasses

I added to my look by stopping by @rOrO and picking up their Third Life Gift — these “Love N Hate” Sunglasses which come in either gold of Silver. Even though my dress was gold, I opted to wear the silver glasses because I liked the contrasting looks. These are modifiable and I was able to get a nice fit with a little stretching and playing and voila! If you are not already a member, the Third Life Group is 10L to join and gives you access to gifts across the grid. It’s well worth the 10L fee!

A Cheeky Find

Cheeky Rose

EvelineInTheBox sent out a special new gift to celebrate 1,000 members… and if you hurry you can pick up this free Nora dress in pink. The group is free to join. The detailing on this dress is fantastic. It has a pretty cut and neckline with a floral ribbon edging around the hem and sleeves. I realized belatedly that I should have given you a picture of the back of the dress, as the back is a criss-cross of ribbons for a beautiful, feminine look, with just a touch of butt-cleavage (for the daring ones!).

This dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Standard Mesh XXS – L with an Alpha Layer
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique

Cheeky Rose 2

A cheeky find.

I’m still enjoying the Aloha Fair, though I’m not sure how much longer you have to pick up all the great gifts. I found this pretty necklace by Cheeky called Boho Rose as a 1L gift and it matched my dress just perfectly. I picked it up and found it fit over most of my mesh dresses and has a pretty rose metallic finish. It’s a steal for just 1L!

Be sure to visit the Aloha Fair before it is over… the variety of beautiful dollarbie gifts is just amazing!

From Head to Toe

The Seamstress 1

It’s Tuesday! And that means 25L specials! I made away like a bandit today and put together a roleplay look that you won’t want to miss out on. Some of you who don’t roleplay may like the looks of these deals too!

From Head to Toe!

I made my first stop at Calico where they have out two hairstyles for just 25L per color pack (or 150L for the fatpack). I chose the pretty “Daphne” style you see in my picture. It’s a fully mesh style, but also includes an optional flexi attachment (not shown) if you want some added softness. For just 25L per pack, this style is a steal!

A dress, a dress!

EvelineInTheBox never ceases to amaze me with pretty dresses for my wardrobe. This dress is perfect for roleplay (I’ve set myself up as a seamstress here in this scene, but this dress is really perfect for so many things), but this dress would also work great for a casual date or every day wear as well. Best yet for your 25L you also get a color change hud and 10 color choices, including brown, pink, moss, lavender, charcoal, red, sky (shown), black, olive, and salmon.

Sizes available:

  • Standard mesh sizes XXS – L
  • Slink
  • Maitreya

The Seamstress 2

A free gift too

While I was at EvelineInTheBox, I took the opportunity to pick up their free Group gift! The group is free to join, and they currently have out these pretty leather and star anklets. These are made to fit Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza, as well as there is a classic size with a resize script in the box.

One more stop.

I finished my wandering at On a Lark where I picked up a set of sandals. These flats are just 25L per color (or 150 for the fatpack of colors which includes all the colors plus all the metal textures too). I’m showing off the blue one’s here with the silver straps. For just 25L these Flat Sandals by On a Lark are a steal and come in sizes to fit Maitreya or Slink feet.

I’ve Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts

Tropical_002

“I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
There they are all standing in a row
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head
Give them a twist a flick of the wrist
That’s what the showman said
I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts
Every ball you throw will make me rich
There stands my wife, the idol of me life
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch”

Okay, okay…

Okay, so I don’t really have any coconuts, but I found this great tiki disco house called The Revival Disco where I could dance in my new free group gift dress from EvelineInTheBox! I love this particular dress. The colors are tropical and gorgeous and it has a sexy side slit all the way down the right side of the dress.

Sizes you’ll be getting: Standard sizes XXS – L + a Fitted Mesh and a quality alpha for system bodies.

EvelineInTheBox is a great place to pick up roleplay, fantasy, and modern clothes for low prices and regularly puts out a free group gift. Be sure to drop by and get your free Nandi dress before it disappears!

A Dress with My Name on It

Spring Flowers_001

I’m baaaaaaack…….

I’m back and I missed all of you! I stopped by one of my favorite places to get free gifts, EvelineInTheBox, and was pleasantly surprised that the current free gift bears my name… Astrid! And it’s a pretty spring dress with flowers and a waist tied bow that isn’t too outlandish but instead is just right! As always, the EvelineInTheBox group is free to join, making this pretty dress free too!

Sizes available:

  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

It’s good to be home.

It’s nice to take breaks, but it’s good to be home too. I missed my blogging family and all of you readers. I hope this free spring time dress makes you as happy as it made me when I came across it this morning. Here’s hoping there is a sunny sky where you are today!

A Warming Trend

Morning Dew_001

I see a trend.

This warm weather thing must be a trend. I think a few of us have been longing for a break from the cold weather. If you are also into fantasy roleplay (or even if you are not), I’ve found a warm weather outfit that may just suit your fancy. I took a stroll among the flowers with it, but I can see it fitting into a roleplay wardrobe too.

The dress.

The latest group gift from EvelineInTheBox is easily one of my favorite gifts from the creator yet. It is very elaborate with a plunging neckline, shoulder straps, a strap across the chest, and very unique sleeves that sort of remind me of “I dream of Jeanie.” As always, the group is free to join, making the gift free to you.

Sizes it comes in:

  • Maitreya
  • Werwolf
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Wrap it up.

I paired my new dress with a unique gift from Merlific. These Maitreya specific leg wraps not only fit like a dream, they are sexy too. The group is free to join, making the gift free as well. You’ll get a gift package that contains five colors (black, white, red, blue, and purple). I’m showing off the black in my picture as it matched my outfit. Don’t miss your chance to pick these up!
