Summer Nymph


Sumertime Nymph
Alright, I have to admit that while I am generally speaking all about autumn when it comes to seasons, I do like all the lovely flowers and bright sunny afternoons that happen the most during summer. This cute little dress from WitchCraft may have also had something to do with my summer moment.

I don’t think this dress could be more summery in style with its floral print and strategic cutouts. It also happens the Saturday Sale item at WitchCraft. Not to worry, even though Saturday has come and gone, it will be available at the Saturday Sale price until this Thursday, June 27th. This flowery little dress comes in a few sizes, and has a color/texture change hud with 6 pretty floral patterns to choose from.

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

Here are the details:

Hair – Truth – Damaris
Head – Catwa – Koura
Horns – Alchemy – Demon Horns – Cloud
Skin – Essences – Vanya
Dress – {WitchCraft} – Solara Dress – 50L Saturday Sale Item *Available until 6/27
Tattoos – Ivory & Rose – Downhearted Tattoo & Somber Tattoo
Shoes – Pure Poison – Daphne Platforms
Pose w/wall prop – .::Hazeel::. Serenity ~Bento Pose

Deep Greens and Blues Are the Colors I Choose

Summer Day

Hello Fabulous Readers!  Ripley and I are back from our camping trip.  We had beautiful blue skies and no snow this time!  It was nice to get away, but it also feels so good to be home again.  The first thing we did this morning was to make a return visit to Ajuda SL Brasil to do a little budget friendly shopping.  We found a super cute casual outfit to share with you on this Monday.

Earthy Greens and Blues

I guess I have green on my mind since the pupster and I were out in nature for the past 6 days.  When I saw the Bettina Top and Shorts set from Cynderella’s as a free gift, I knew it was destined for my inventory!  With its loose fitting verdant crop top and pale denim shorts, this is just the right get up for an easy summer day.  The top features spaghetti style shoulder straps and a vibrant botanical print.  A coordinating floral motif and lace trim on the jeans echoes the theme, and a sturdy belt provides a finishing accessory.  The folder includes fitmesh for classic avatars as well as versions for several mesh body types.  Best of all, you can pick it up for free, with no group membership required! I appreciated the fact that the designer included a note card certifying that the outfit is an original creation donated to Ajuda Brasil to be offered as a gift to residents.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  •  Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (includes separate alpha layers for top and shorts)
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I hope your work week is off to a wonderful start.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

You Know Everything


You Know Everything

Hello Fab Free’rs, this post is going to be a little bit different in that it’s all about the new male head gift at Akeruka, and a new group gift couples pose at WRONG rather than ladies fashion. Thankfully I have this handsome gentleman of mine here to help. The Akeruka head wouldn’t look even half as good on me as it does on him! Keep reading, and I’ll share more about each of these fantastic group gifts.

That face! The Akeruka Clay head is the latest group gift for Akeruka group members. This male head is a full Akeruka Deluxe mesh bento head complete with animations. Also included with this gift is the Akeruka skin in multiple tones with facial hair options, and body appliers for Slink (Omega), Signature (Omega), and Belleza bodies. The Akeruka group has a one time join fee of 150 linden. To get yours you will need to wear your Akeruka group tag, and pay the gift vendor 1 linden. This gift will be available until July 6th. After July 6th, the Clay head will be for sale at the regular price.

The pose Blue so patiently sat in with me while I took this photo is a free group gift at WRONG. There are actually several group gifts at WRONG, and the store group is free to join. I like the potential narrative this pose lends itself to. The pose is named “You Know Everything” which I also liked. It’s true, Blue pretty much knows everything. This free group gift at WRONG includes individual his and hers poses, along with a cool modern chair to pose in. I’ll include a copy of the vendor ad for this pose by WRONG below so you can get the full effect.

WRONG. You know everything

Here are the details, happy shopping!

Kimono BoHo

Kimono BoHo

Are ya feeling lucky? Well… are ya?  Cause I sure am!

I was making my normal rounds today when I popped into Oubliette to check out the groups and the Lucky boards and Bingo! There was a big ol’ J on this awesome kimono and tank set! Lucky Lucky Me!

Kimono Boho

This is the ‘Midnight Velvet Burnout Kimono’ and it’s one of four lucky boards in the Oubliette mainstore. All you need to do is be a member of the free Petite Mort and Oubliette group and wait for your lucky letter to pop up and it’s all yours. The kimono and tank are one piece but you get a nice HUD of styles and colors for the tank. I love the relaxed boho look I’ve got going on here.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Classic Mesh XXS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

 

Sweet 16

So, I took my boho self over to the grand SecondLife 16th Birthday celebration… and wooooow. There’s a ton to see and do! I was nearly overwhelmed. There are so many free gifts both at the main celebration and in the shopping area… I lost count of them all!  I may never open all these boxes.  But I was really pleased when the gift from Earthstones matched my kimono boho outfit so perfectly.

This the ‘Ferris’ necklace in moonstone and pearls and it’s Eathstones free SL16 gift. There’s also a matching set of earrings. Like everything from Earthstones, this set is absolutely perfectly made and simply gorgeous.

P.S.

Lastly, I have a quick note about my hair. While I’m not featuring my new hair, I want to pass along the news that Magika is finishing up their big Summer sale tomorrow, the 25th. All the hair in the store is 50% off. Even the deep discount hair. For everyone not just Group members. It’s a great time to grab those styles you had your eye on!

Get Into My Car


Get into My Car

There are some fashion items that though they speak of another decade, they are timeless. I feel that way about dresses with peter-pan collars. Needless to say, I had to show this dress by Fashionably Dead. It’s their free gift in celebration of Second Life’s 16th Birthday. I think it happens to go perfectly with Lamb’s gift hairstyle for SL16B, and the gift set of pastel lip colors Alaskametro has out as their free SL16B gift. I felt like a 1960s fashion model with a modern edge. Keep reading for more info on each of these fantastic freebies.

I really love this free SL16B gift dress by Fashionably Dead. It comes in a wide range of solid colors, and has a girlish but still grown up look to it. The Fashionably Dead shop for SL16B is located in the Gilded region. This cute dress comes in the following sizes for each color: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya).

This flowing over the shoulders hairstyle is the free SL16B gift by Lamb. It comes in a full fatpack of colors. It also has a hairbase style hud with the choice of hiding or showing the hairbase feature. Lamb’s shop is in SL16B’s Tinseled region. You’ll find this generous freebie waiting there.

Lastly, but far from least, I couldn’t complete my modern retro look without some shimmery lips. Alaskametro put out a pretty Omega applier “Bubblegum” lip gloss pallet as their free SL16B gift. It has 6 frosty pastel shades, and an additional feature that lets you pick from 3 different lip shapes for each color. I think that is a really cool option. This fabulous gift also has one more unique feature that I really like, there’s a button on the hud that will send you the classic system layers for this lip gloss set. Alaskametro is in the SL16B Halcyon region, which is where you’ll find this awesome makeup freebie.

Happy shopping Fab Free, here are the details:

Proper Pinup


Seaside PinUp

Welcome to the blog Fab Free! It was a warm bright sunny day for me in Second Life today, and I felt every bit a proper pinup girl at the beach. To get the look I had some help from a few of the many free gifts in the shopping regions of the Second Life 16th Birthday event. I picked up what felt like a metric ton of freebies, however for this post I want to share with you the SL16B gifts by Narcisse, ICONIC, and Pyscho Byts.

First, the bright red polka dotted monokini is the SL16B gift by Narcisse. It comes in this single color, and is fit for Maitreya Lara only. To get yours, all you need to do is head over to the Narcisse shop in the SL16B Aurelian region and pick it up for free.

Next up, the long side swept hairstyle is the free SL16B gift by ICONIC. It comes in a fatpack of colors, and has a style hud that lets you flip the hair so it’s either over the left shoulder or the right. You’ll find it waiting for free at the ICONIC shop in SL16B’s Tinseled Region.

Finally, the reason for the trio of photos is to show you 3 of the 6 static poses in the “Lili” pose set by Psycho Byts. Each of the six poses is in what I would call a pinup style. The set has individual poses, and a pose hud. This set is one of 2 free gift pose sets by Psycho Byts just waiting to be picked up at SL1B’s Golden region.

Thanks for reading, here are the details:

Hair – ICONIC:STEPHANIE::TOTAL STYLER – Free Gift @SL16B Tinseled

Back to Bora Bora

Back to Bora Bora

A few posts back, Pru showed us one of two gorgeous tropical themed group gifts from Beautiful Dirty Rich. Normally, we don’t “double dip” but this pant and top and shoes set was just too cute to leave behind. So get your sunscreen and your coconut drinks and let’s head back to Bora Bora!

Tropical weekend

This great complete outfit is “Weekend in Bora Bora” from Beautiful Dirty Rich. Yep, you get the top, the super cute flared pants AND the heels all for free! Just wear your group tag and help yourself. Now that would certainly be enough but wait there’s more… (cheesey announcer voice) You will get a huge HUD with ten ‘sets’ of color patterns. Each tropical pattern set has two color or pattern choices for both the pants and the top and three choices for the color of the crochet insert in the pants. Talk about mix and match! If that wasn’t enough… the sandals have ten color choices to color the entire shoe and ten choices to color just the fabric part with a wood grain heel. Whew… Amazing!

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique

Lakeside Afternoon


Lakeside Afternoon

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Love and I were able to get together and share some pixel space. It was nice to take a minute to chitchat, and do some catching up. The moment also gave us the opportunity to show off some fabulous and free group gifts by LsR Moda and Amitie. You can check out her photo of this moment here. I hope you like them!

These cute striped dresses are the free LsR Moda group gift versions of the Kyllie dress. The LsR Moda group is free to join at this time, and there are lots of gifts waiting on the second floor of the shop. The dresses come in the following sizes: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, and Belleza Isis.

The bento seated pose is another free group gift. This one is from Amitie. Right now you can join the Amitie group for free as well. All you need to do to get your copy is head over to Amitie,  join the Amitie group, and click the group gift vendor while wearing your group tag. Also, I think it’s worth mentioning that Amitie is having a 50% off sale now through the end of the month.

Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Happy Rezz Day

Happy Rezz Day

Happy Rezz Day to me!  What’s funny is I hadn’t even been thinking about it being my Rezz day today. I was puttering around taking pictures for the blog when suddenly Ms. Jezzixa Cazalet popped on the Prism Group chat and announced that she had just put up anew “Rezz Day Gift Giver” and was it anyone’s Rezz day? Cause if it was, she needed someone to try out the new board. I jumped at the chance! If  you heard a squeal of delight earlier this evening… yep… that was me, “Ooooh me! Pick me!”

Fiora

I hurried over and slapped that board quicker than you can say “Happy Rezz Day”.  This is the beautiful ‘Fiora Classic Dress’. Like everything from Prism, Fiora is beautifully made with clean, classic lines and bold colors. I picked this deep blue but you can choose one of five vibrant colors on the HUD.

Sizes Included

  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, Venus
  • eBody
  • Fitmesh- XS-L
  • Maitreya
  • SLink – Hourglass, Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic – Curvy, Fine

The delightful Ms Jezzixa told me that ‘Fiora’ will remain on the Rezz Day vender for one full year. So everyone will get a chance to add it to your closet. Plus… in the spirit of giving back to the Second Life community, you don’t need to join any group to receive this free gift! Of course, I recommend joining the group to get in the know about all the lovely new releases and the group gifts that are all as nice as this one.
