Will o’ The Wisp

Will o' the Wisp Hello Fab Free’rs, thanks for coming by! Today’s post is fairly simple but I had a lot of fun with it. Sometimes a look will inspire me in a different way. This one did just that. It reminds me of something not fashion related, the folkloric wisps found in European folklore. Something about the blazing blue hair paired with the tartan-ish pattern of this draping backless dress made me imagine a mythological being. Perhaps the embodiment of a wisp? Either way, I had fun, and I hope you will also!
The Wisp This wonderfully wild hair is by Exile. The “Hot” style is one of Exile’s gacha hairstyles at The Arcade. To get this bright blue color, you’ll need to score the “Fantasy 2” color pack. If the brighter colors aren’t to your liking there are plenty of more natural versions as well, even in the “Fantasy 2” hud. The Exile gacha at The Arcade is just 50 lindens per play. There are 2 hairstyles to be had, each in several color packs.

The dress is by NSP Florals and can be had for just 10 lindens at The Wash’s Indian Summer Cart Sale. This chevron pattern reminds me of tartan or flannel style patterns and I love it! Flannel was hugely in style during my teens and 20s, and I hear it’s making a come-back. Hence the nostalgic feelings associated with the fabric. There are however several other equally pretty versions available if this one doesn’t suit you. Each version is just 10 lindens and comes in several fitmesh sizes. There’s even a solid white version. So go, visit the NSP Florals Cart, don’t miss out on this lovely floor-length dress. The Cart Sale won’t last forever.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Wild Thing!

Wild Thing

I’m in love with the newest Sn@tch fishing prize! This one includes system and applier leggings (in three styles) and a full fatpack of different “wild” mesh tops that are super sexy. If you already have a 7 Seas fishing rod (the cost is 100L for the casual fishing rod) you can re-use it to fish for this amazing 22 piece outfit that also includes omega applier lipstick, arm bangles, and mesh gold eyes as well as these killer shoes I’m wearing in the photo above. The heels will fit Slink, Maitreya, or Belleza mid feet for all your mesh feet needs. The mesh tops come in all the standard mesh sizes.

I’m including a copy of the vendor advertisement below to give you a peek at a few of the other halter top options. Aren’t they just wild?!

Cheeky Amour In My Third Life

Snapshot_001Good evening FabFree!  As I was popping around inworld today, a really pretty Third Life group gift caught my eye at Cheeky Amour!  The mesh floral mini dress as shown on my avatar is the group gift you can obtain after activating your inworld Third Life group tag.  This group is 5L to join, but after you pay the little fee you gain access to tons of rotating gifts from different participating shops.

This dress comes in XS-XL Fitmesh sizes with co-ordinating alpha layer as well as Maitreya, Slink, TMP, Belleza and Hourglass body sizing.

**  Note:  In my folder, one of the textures would not rez on the Maitreya size, but the Slink size fit just fine on my Maitreya body.  I am sure out of all of the sizes included – you’ll find one to fit you too.  I did notecard the designer so she is aware.

More Miss Chelsea

Snapshot_005Hello FabFree! Yesterday I mentioned that Miss Chelsea had moved to a new location and had three new group gifts out for their inworld members. I showed you one of them [HERE], but I wanted to show off another one of them, because when I tried it on I really liked it!

The Emie dress comes with a texture change hud that allows for a handful of top colour choices to go with the red polka dotted skirt and is compatible with Maitreya, Slink and Belleza mesh bodies.  As I mentioned yesterday, the Miss Chelsea inworld group is 100L to join.

Make Me

Make Me

I’m feeling lazy this morning so I stayed in for a soak. Luckily I have the perfect hunt if you don’t feel like teleporting around to different shops. Have you tried the Marketplace Hunt yet? I found this gorgeous bodysuit from Alpha Female that I had to share with you. It’s called “Make Me” and after putting it on, you certainly can’t make me take it off this morning😉

A little hunting on the marketplace and 5L is all this bodysuit will cost you. You’ll get a system layer as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink mesh bodies. It’s a well made outfit in black and gold for a classic look.

Be sure to hurry, this hunt ends tomorrow, August 28th!

Mistress of Jewells

Mistress of Jewells

Morning is nearly over, but I’m not ready to get out of bed… and I’m sure you can see why! Luxury is mine today with some special finds you will want to be part of!

I love appliers and so the Addicted to Appliers Hunt is proving to be a hunt that I’m really enjoying. I hunted down this pretty lingerie for just 1L at Miss Jewell‘s main-store location. It includes system layers for standard avatars as well as appliers for Maitreya, Belleza, and Lolas.

I also stopped by Genre and fell in love with the Lumae “Showgirl” skin that is being showcased at the event. At 100L it is over our 75L limit… but when you consider that you get every possible applier imaginable for that one teensy price (plain or freckled), I think you’ll understand why I wanted to let you know about this beautiful skin! I picked it up in Tone 4 (fawn) but there were three other tones out that you can pick up for the same low price.

P.S. If you love my hair and jewels, you can get those at the current round of Collabor88. Exile has this amazing hair out (necklace included) with a color change hud for the pearls!

Tori-tastic!

Tori-tastic Hello Fab Free’rs I’ve got several things to share with you today, so I’ll get right to it! I love this complete look, and I hope you do also. I had really hoped to get an “out and about” style photo of the complete look, but my computer/internet connection have other ideas! Ah well.

Starting with the romper Pru has on, I loved the pattern of the material and the bright colors. This low cut halter style romper is the Women’s Hunt prize you can find at Maci. The hint tells you to find Carmen to find the hidden dollarbie hunt prize. In the box you’ll find several mesh fits including classic mesh sizes, Belleza (Venus, Isis, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Eve (Slim, Pulpy), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), and TMP. Not to mention I think this romper is great for showing off the white henna style tattoo from Letis that Pru is wearing!

Next, I am forever in love with the shoes from Empire! These thigh high strap-y creations are the August group gift for the Empire VIP group. The gift comes with a full “fat pack” color hud so you’ll have the ability to choose from any of the standard Empire shoe colors. Also, you can color individual parts of the shoes differently to match your outfit. The gift includes a Maitreya, Slink (Physique, Hourglass) , and Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus) foot and body fits. The Empire VIP group has a one time join fee of 499 lindens which may seem steep, but if you’re as crazy about shoes as I am, it’s beyond worth it. You’ll not only get access to these shoes FREE, you’ll be able to pick up several of the past group gifts as well.

As if this cute little outfit needed any more sass, I decided to add in this blue toned face piercing by Suicidal Unborn!. It’s like the cherry on the sundae! This septum/Marilyn combo is perfect for something subtle, and the blue color makes it a little more  unique than other similar piercings. You can find this piercing set for just 50 lindens on the Marketplace.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Master & Mistress of Ceremonies

Master and Mistress of Ceremonies

It’s not Halloween yet, but that is no excuse to avoid good cosplay! Or just good Gothic fun. Loki and I did a little hunting and came up good with a couple of outfits you won’t want to miss out on.

You’re seeing us in Roped Passion’s matching gift for Ladies and Men for the Carnival of Souls Hunt. Just 1L will get you this is the Mistress and Master of Ceremonies outfits. Both come in all the standard mesh sizes and with a good alpha layer (P.S. if you picked up the outfit earlier before the alpha layer was out, you can pick up the alpha layer for free in a box at the front of the store now!).

The lady’s outfit includes this gorgeously detailed corset with roses and skulls, a pair of panties, a bra, and a necklace. You will also get a top hat (not shown).

The men’s outfit is an exquisite suit that comes in one piece for easy fitting and wear. You’ll need your own shoes, but a plain black pair will do nicely.

Ceremonies 2

Love tipped me off on a gift I didn’t want to miss out on, and if you are a LeLutka mesh head wearer, you may want to pick this one up too. The Laura Hurley group is FREE to join, and if you stop by the main-store you can pick up this beautiful LeLutka head applier called “Jojo” for FREE as the current group gift. I fell in love with the beautiful skin tone, the beauty mark on the left side near the mouth/chin and the deep wine colored lips. Since I wear a Maitreya body, I was able to find an applier nearby for 200L and I was set for that one cost, head to toe!

It’s not about seducing men, it’s about embracing womanhood

Snapshot_007I think Dita Von Teese had it right when she said (regarding lingerie) “It’s not about seducing men, it’s about embracing womanhood“.   I am not entirely sure if it is the lingerie itself that men are attracted to, or if it is the confidence and sensuality that we, as women gain when we are wearing a sultry set that they find appealing.  Either way, it is apparent that it’s a good idea to wear a little something sexy  from time to time even if no one but you is going to see it!  Put on some lace along with that game face.

In my photo I am displaying the Celine Lingerie Set by Luxuria that you can pick up at the current round of ROMP) for free!  System layers and several different mesh body appliers are included.  While you are there make sure you have a peek around, because there is a handful of other gifts to pick up.

I’ve been on the Hunt again and July is turning in to a great month for hunting.  I found this super cute crop top on the Pastel Party Hunt from Wicked. You get two versions of the ‘May’ top in the Hunt prize: the “steel Feathers” I’m showing you and a mint green version. And talk about something for every “body”. May comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS – L, plus appliers for Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus, SLink Physique and Hourglass and Maitraya.  All this for a little searching and 1 linden. The Pastel Party Hunt runs until July 31 so get to hunting.

My cool new skirt is from a ‘new to me’ designer: Delicatt Couture. This is the ‘Jasmine Skirt’ and it’s the free gift for the Third Life Group. Jasmine comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. Delicatt Couture has a ton of gifts out for their group and other “around the Grid’ groups so be sure to check them out!
