Southern Sophistication

Southern Sophistication

Hello Fab Free! Thanks for stopping by our Fabulous blog today. It seems like already there are so many hunts, events, and gifts to be had for the month of February, it’s so exciting! I was able to put together most of this look using group gifts from MoDanna and ECCO, a hunt prize from More Than Ever, and a wearable demo from Alaskametro. I love this look because it reminds me of some of the style you would see in the Southern U.S. where I am from.

Starting from top to bottom, I picked up this sort of matte red lipstick from Alaskametro on the Marketplace. I thought it matched the red of the boots perfectly. The lipstick applier is a FREE wearable demo from Alaskametro showing the “Fiery” shade in their “Creme Red” lipstick collection. This FREE wearable demo includes a system layer, a Loud Mouth applier, an Omega applier, a Lelutka applier, and a Slink Visage applier.

Next I picked up this almost bolero style necklace for FREE at ECCO with my ECCO group tag. This pretty necklace with heart and bead dangles is the February group gift at ECCO. It includes a color change hud to allow you to customize the color of the cords, beads, metal, and gems of the necklace for high versatility. The ECCO group does have a one time join fee of 200 lindens, however you will not only be able to get the February group gift, but you’ll have instant access to several previous group gifts upon joining the ECCO group.

This sophisticated looking sleek black dress is another group gift, this one from MoDanna. All MoDanna group members can pick up this group gift for 1 linden while wearing their group tag. In addition to purchasing the dress, your 1 linden is converted into 1 linden store credit! The MoDanna group is free to join, and there is usually a group gift each month, not to mention group members earn store credit for their purchases.

Finally, these gorgeous boots! I love the tooled red leather look of these red boots from More Than Ever. The boots are the Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt prize from More Than Ever. This hunt is a 10 linden hunt, so you can score these amazing mesh boots for just 10 lindens, all you need to do is find them! You’ll be looking for a black and red shoe hidden in the More Than Ever shop.

Here are the details, Enjoy!

A Cascade of Magic

Sometimes a little fantasy pick-me-up is just the thing to make your day… and today I felt like making a little magic! I picked up a few things around the grid sure to make any role player’s day a bit more magical, and I’m here to let you in on the magician’s secrets!

Right now if you stop by [EvelineInTheBox], the creator’s February gift is out. It is this lovely Thyri Cascade dress in mesh (all the standard sizes) that is really just fantastic. I love the way the dress curves around my avatar’s body! It is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join, making this lovely gift a sweet deal!

A Cascade of Magic

Remember that Alice Project is still hosting their Winter Project! Today I stopped by to pick up this hair called Amy in the Winter Shimmer version… which is the VIP members’ gift. This is FREE to VIPs. The group is 750L to join but there are always TONS of amazing offers. There is also a FREE pack out for nonmembers, so it’s still very worth your time to stop by and pick up the giftie even if you are not a VIP member.

My roleplay character Astrid is a fey who does light and magic using staffs… so when I saw this crystal staff at A.D.D.Andel! I fell in love! It is only 50L per spin at the in-store gacha and there are lots of beautiful staffs in the machine. These are even modifiable, so I was able to make mine have a bit of a glow to better fit how I envisioned my character. Love, love, love this!

Remember when you used to make Valentine’s cards using paper heart doilies? The lovely group gift from FA Creations reminded me of making cards using paper doilies, ah nostalgia. The gift is this pretty mesh eyelet lace top which includes a pastel color hud. You can pair it with jean like I did, shorts or a skirt would work just as nicely. Its really a versatile and cute top and will be great for summer time. You have the whole month to grab this top for FREE with a FREE group join.

The February Hunts Are Here!

OpenA whole new cornucopia of hunts just started on Monday, February 1st, so it’s time for lots more hunting fun… not to mention all that free (or nearly free) stuff!

Get your friends together. It’s more fun to run around in a group and you can put your heads together to solve those hunt hints.

Just poke the hunt names for more information on each one. I’m sure you can find one that makes your “shopping brain” happy!

See you out on the hunt!

A Little Beach Yoga

Hello again fabulous peeps! I picked up a fun outfit on the Marketplace the other day and just had to show you. Especially for those of us in the Northern hemisphere, we could really use some brightness during the dreary winter we are going through right now. For an added bonus, I took my pictures at the beach, while doing yoga! That should help make you forget about winter for a few minutes :)

A Little Beach Yoga

Doing my best tree yoga pose, gives a good shot of my really cute mesh Elise outfit in the cheery Sun colouring, and comes from a new to me store on Marketplace, called Cysleek. I just happened to stumble across it the other day when I was browsing around. For L$0, you get both the yellow striped tee, and the fun orange parachute pants. Both pieces are mesh, and come in the standard sizes, and they would both be great to mix and match with other clothing you probably already have. I’ve included a shot with both legs down so you can really get a good look at my pants. I have to say, this outfit really makes me smile, as you all know how much I love bright colours, and you really can’t beat free.

A Little Beach Yoga

Ok, I hope you all liked my get-away-from-winter post! I’m off for now, but don’t worry, I’ll be back. Until then, TTFN, and namaste :)

Bringing Sexy Back

Snapshot_002

Hi there FabFree!  You might be wondering why I am thoughtfully gazing out the window as if to be longing for someone who has gone away…

Fear not!  For I have only strategically placed myself to show off the sexy ribbon tied back of this blouse made by The Bubblegum Tree!  You can actually find the entire outfit including the mesh black pants and blouse for just 10L in The Bubble Gum Tree Marketplace Store.  There is no longing or gazing going on over here!

I have linked you directly to the brown lace version that I am wearing, but there are several prints/colours available at the same low price so check out the whole store :)
