Deadly Cute

Deadly Cute
I’m a sucker for good juxtaposition. So I can’t help but like “cute poisoned foodie” print on this dress by Grumble. I also dig the fact that the colors are something other than pastel. This sinister sweet dress is a dollarbie Star Spangled Hunt prize at Grumble. The Star Spangled Hunt runs until July 18th.

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

Hunt Hint: “Maid to Order…”

Some Days, You Just Get Lucky

A Single Sunbeam

Happy Thursday, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I are off today on a camping adventure to the mountains (just in time to escape a horrible heat wave), but I couldn’t leave without sharing this free outfit with you first.  I just love the design of this one!

“To Me, Flowers Are Happiness”

This quote from Stefano Gabbana says it all.  When I put on an item decorated with posies, I just have to smile.  I absolutely adore the combination of denim and the pretty floral print in this Naira Top and Skirt from Safira.  I know, I know, just yesterday I told you about a cute top that I picked up as a free group gift at the shop, but I also mentioned those group-only lucky boards.  This free outfit just so happens to be one of the ten prizes that group members can win if their lucky letter appears.  There were quite a few avatars in the shop while I was there, so the boards turned over very quickly and it didn’t take too long for that often elusive “K” to pop up.  I did a little happy dance, then scurried home to open up my prize.  The top is actually composed of two segments – a bandeau section and the long sleeves.  You can wear them together as I have done, or just the bra piece by itself to change up your look.  The skirt features a high waist, a zipper in the back, and a flirty hemline.  It’s a bit on the short side, so I made strategic use of the alpha layer on my mesh body, but it also has built in undies (the C string).  The generous designer included a texture change HUD so you can alter the shade of denim in the skirt, as well as the metals, and you can turn on and off the C string section and change up its color.  I really really love the hues in this set, and best of all it was free!  All I needed was a bit of patience and membership in the Safira Store Group (50L join fee).

Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

I will miss you when I am gone and hope you have a wonderful time in the next week.  I look forward to sharing more Fabulous Finds with you when we return.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

All on a Lazy Summer Day

Think Pink

Hello there, Fabulouses!  Ripley and I put his talented nose to the test today and headed down the trail of the Lazy Summer Day Hunt.  Our first discovery over at Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes actually inspired my outfit.  I hope you are in the mood to think pink, because that’s where my mind went.  The best part?  My entire outfit cost just $26 Linden dollars!

The Inspiration

After locating the lounge chair hunt icon concealed inside Lindy Modern and Retro Shoes, I was inspired to put together this entire look just based on these cute Kendra sneakers.  My picture does not do justice to the intricate designs on the canvas of the sneakers, so I’ve included the vendor close up below.  I immediately fell in love with the delicate white blossoms and stitched swirls.  The white piping, sole and lacing are just perfect for completing the look of this casual set of footwear.  They are designed to fit classic avatars as well as Slink and Maitreya mesh feet.  A shoe base and alpha layer are tucked inside the folder.  To add these shoes to your inventory, all you have to do is find the hunt object and pay the teensy 1 Linden dollar price.  There is a hint giver in the shop if you don’t have a super sniffer dog 😉 or if you need a nudge in the right direction.

You Can Never Go Wrong With a Little Pink

The other day, I told you about a group gift that I had picked up just for being a member of the Safira Store Group, and I mentioned how there are 64 past gifts up for grabs.  Well, this adorable Mindy top is one of those free gifts.  Of course, I chose pink to coordinate with my new footwear, but with the included texture change HUD, I had the option to go with five prints or four other solid colors.  It’s like getting ten tops in one package!  Its ruffled trim on the hemline really ups the cuteness factor!  It is designed exclusively for the Maitreya mesh body.  You do have to be a member of the Safira Store Group to receive this gift, and there is a 50 Linden dollar join fee, but there are a LOT of other goodies available to members, plus group-only lucky boards, so I am super happy that I joined.

But You Said 26 Linden Dollars…

The final touch for my summer day outfit was a new pair of Worn Denim Shorts that I picked up on the Marketplace at the Bang Bang shop for 25 Linden dollars.  They are short but not too short and feature folded up cuffs and a beaded belt around the waist.  The jeans texture on these shorts is really well done and the stitching and button closure are very realistic looking.  The folder contains versions for classic as well as mesh avatars.  I’m sure these will become a summer time fave of mine!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Classic mesh in XS, S, M, L and XL (no alpha layer)
  • Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Slink Hourglass and Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy and Fine

Until my next post, happy shopping!

So Pugly


So Pugly

Hey Fab Free, seems like the week is just chugging along, did we even have a weekend? lol One great thing about Tuesdays in Second Life is 25 Linden Tuesday. The too-cute top I’m wearing is the 25 Linden Tuesday item at Paper.Sparrow. I also happened across the most recent group gift at Pink Hustler. I hope you love both of these fabulous finds.

The Paper.Sparrow Top

This version of the 25L Tuesday tee at Paper.Sparrow reads “You’re so Pugly” across the bottom. There are several of the “Francis” tees in this style, each with a different graphic priced at 25 linden each for today only. Also, the shirts have a very cute shredded back which is perfect for summer. To get yours, just head over to Paper.Sparrow before the end of the day (I’m not sure if the promotional price will be available longer) and follow the 25LT signs to the vendor. No group is required.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Voluptuous, Ocacin, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Belleza (Freya, Venus), Standard Mesh (S,M,L)

The Pink Hustler Hair

Pink Hustler has this cute shoulder length hairstyle available as a free group gift for all Pink Hustler group members. The style comes with 3 color huds, each with several choices, and the ability to change the color of the bow. This summery style also has resize scripts for easy fitting. The Pink Hustler group has a one time join fee of 500 linden. Along with this gift, there are quite a few previous group gifts still available.

On a Sizzling Summer Day

California Dreaming

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  After a bit of shopping down at The Wash, Ripley and I headed down to the Baja Shore sim with dreams of the west coast on our minds.  Oh how I’d love to be going to the beach in RL this week!  We’ll have to make do with some SL sand and sea instead.  Thanks to our trip to the Sizzling Summer Sale, I am wearing an adorable top that is perfect for a sunny summer day.

California Dreaming

At the Dark Water Designs display, I happily scooped up the California Dreams top in blue for just 10 Linden dollars.  Featuring a strapless design which knots in the front and a cheerful floral print, this little number will have you ready to soak up some rays and feel the ocean breeze caressing your shoulders.  The pattern of the fabric is just so pretty with its white and pink flowers scattered across a pale aqua blue background.  If you’d prefer a different color combination, there are three other patterns to choose from – all priced at a budget-friendly 10 Linden dollars each.  The event runs until July 24th, so you still have plenty of time to visit.

Mesh Body Compatibility: 

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Until my next post, happy shopping!

It Was Just a Daydream


Just a Daydream

I sometimes have a habit of daydreaming, especially if I am near a window with even a somewhat interesting view. I don’t see it as a negative thing. Still, I’ll admit I sometimes find myself daydreaming when I should be doing other things. Today however, I have plenty to keep me busy. It’s Cart Sale time once again, and here at Fab Free that spells bargain hunting!

I’ve already browsed through the rows of carts at The Wash sim and no matter what your looking for, you just might find it. I picked up this cute little shorts and halter top set by Kuid for just 10 linden. The set comes with a hud for the top with several patterns and a few graphic choices, and a hud for the shorts to match them to the shirt. I think the back of the top is the best part of the whole outfit. This set comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus). To get yours, head to the Kuid Cart at The Cart Sale.
