Never too late for <3’s

Be My Belated Valentine_001

Never too late for <3’s

I don’t think hearts are ever out of season! Love shouldn’t be just one day of the year after all! But if you want to say that this outfit is a Happy Belated Valentine’s Day gift, that is okay too. Either way, I love this fanciful outfit!

I picked up my pretty red dress with the hearts on it from Ison. It is a Valentine’s gift so I’m not sure how long it will be out, so don’t wait! Hurry and pick this one up. It’s free and no group is required, just buy it for 0L when you go inside the store.

Dress Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique
  • Freya

<3’s in My Hair Too!

I even have fancifully heart-ed hair too! Another store that has set out a no-group-required free Valentine’s gift is Exile. Again, since this is a holiday exclusive gift, I’m not sure how long it will be out… so hurry! You won’t need a group, just buy it for 0L. This pretty bun with the side tendrils has hearts in the hair.

There are two separate huds that accompany the hair. You get a hud to change the color of the hearts (I kept them a traditional red) and you get a hud to change the color of the hair to various dip dye colors. It’s such a pretty style and for free!

Red Hot Hearts

Heart_001

Red Hot

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never too late to be … red hot. And this hot (FREE!) subscriber gift of red stockings with a little trail of heart on the legs from House of Ruby is proof of that. It’s also unisex (yes that’s right, guys you can be red hot in this gift too!). Of course, like most things from House of Ruby, these stockings are daring. To even show them to you I had to don a pair of… ahem… undies. These stockings come crotch-less for the more risque people in your lives… *wink wink* . These come in a universal Omega applier hud for all your applying needs.

Heart_002

A Touch of Class

I had to top of my otherwise risky outfit with a touch of class, so I stopped by Tabou for some “softer” hearts. Their most recent group gift is a pretty heart necklace with a texture change hud. It includes three metals and three different textures (plain, or two word choices: “Love Sucks” or “Stupid Cupid”). Above I am wearing it in black with a gold metal finish. You can get this necklace just by wearing your Tabou group tag, which you can get for only a tiny 20L fee. There are also several past nice gifts to be picked up while you are there, so the 20L fee won’t be painful at all!

Happy freebie shopping!

Almost Spring

Stripes_001

It’s still sweater weather where I am, but it’s warming up just enough that I can go out without a jacket. It’s hard to believe that it’s still February when some of these warm breezes blow in.

A special gift.

When I saw the Blizzard Top by House of Ruby, I knew it was perfect for these February days that are warm enough to go without a jacket but too cold to go without some protection. It’s Olgita Ruby’s gift to you for being a member of the FabFree group gift, so it’s completely free with your FabFree group tag! Just don your tag and stop by her main-store (be sure to check out all the other amazing stuff plus some past group gifts as well!) and pick up the gift. It comes in several applier layers.

Appliers available:

  • Omega
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Baubles

I wanted to add a little bit of “spring is in the air” to my outfit so I stopped by Beloved Jewelry to pick up their FabFree group gift offering. This one too is free of course and is a lovely wire scroll jewelry set in a soft pink. You can get a better idea of how pretty it is if you zoom in on my flickr picture as it is a very delicate piece. It comes with matching earrings as well, that are hidden under my hair. As always, FabFree gifts are free! Pick this one up too and you’ll be ready for a date, a casual day in the park, or a formal occasion!

OH! And Happy Valentine’s Day! 😉

Gun-Slinger

Guard Duty_002

Annie Oakley

This isn’t the wild west but this outfit made me think of Annie Oakley who sort of paved the way for women to gain prowess with their own shooting skills. One of her more popular quotes (according to google) is: “There are always women who will take men on their own terms. If I were a man I wouldn’t bother to change while there are women like that around.” I had to stop and wonder a moment if she meant that they shouldn’t bother to change clothes… but maybe that is just me being silly 😛

Where to get the Digs

At any rate, you will find this great all-in-one outfit at SA Quartermaster, gun included, for many different mesh bodies. It comes in all one piece so nothing is detachable, and it does not include the boots. You do get a color change hud with four different colors of red, including a camouflage red color. This gift is completely free as part of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt going on right now.

Mesh Size Compatibility:

  • Classic Mesh XS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Tonic – Fine & Curvy
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

New City

Rainy Day_001

“There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave.”
― Charlotte Eriksson

My friend and I went sim exploring and ended up at Tralala’s Diner. It’s this little city street with vendors and it’s raining hard and there is this urban “crunch” about it. It made me think of this quote about how I like to wander new places… but I never really intend to stay in them. I’m always bound to go home. That’s just who I am.

An outfit for the city…

I found a new outfit, perfect for visiting city streets at Barbed Wire Kisses, courtesy of the Cupid’s Conspiracy Hunt. All the gifts in this hunt are free so I picked this one up for 0L. You get the top and the skirt (you can wear them separately) in several mesh sizes to suit your needs. I like the details of the rivets and the buckles that I think make this outfit super sexy.

Dress mesh size compatibility:

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

A good book.

Library_001

I love a good book… and old libraries are a favorite haunt of mine. I’m here at the library at Lorrey checking out the stacks of books to see what I can find.

Heading to the Library.

Before I headed to the shelves I spent a little time with my friend who always has his eye on the ball for a good deal. He really liked the Dirty Little Secrets Hunt and clued me in to this fantastic shirt by Shae’s Designs. It’s yours for just 1L and a little hunting time, and I love the detailing of the rivets and the chain ties at the neckline. It comes in several sizes too!

Shirt Sizes Available:

  • Classic XXS – L
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink – Hourglass & Physique
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Another Dirty Little Secret…

Another dirty little secret along the Hunt are my shoes! Yes, my friend was at it again, and pointed out this great pair of shoes by Barbed Wire Kisses. These shoes come with metal details and buckles as well and will fit Maitreya, Slink, or Belleza feet and once you find the little black bag they are yours for only 1L.

Finally…

Finally! I found the book I was looking for! It’s the Fabulously Free Tome of secrets! I knew it was here somewhere! Better yet, this Tome is a FabFree Group gift from Deadly Nightshade! Like all FabFree group gifts, it is completely free with your FabFree group tag. Just stop by the Deadly Nightshade store to pick it up. In your gift package, you’ll get the Tome in a handheld version that includes a holding pose and you’ll also get a rezzable decoration version of the book. What a perfect gift for the FabFree lover!

Cute Roses

Rose
Hi Again Fab Free’rs! I’m excited to share more of my finds from the Cart Sale going on at The Wash. Aside from the obvious allure of completely affordable prices, a big draw to the Cart Sales put on at The Wash for me is the opportunity to try out shops I’m not super familiar with. One such shop is Dark Water Designs. Along with some very cute casual ladies clothing, they had some casual menswear at the Dark Water Designs cart. I picked up the flirty fringe top, and a cute jogger set. Keep reading for the details!

A Rose by Any Other Name

This pretty halter top with the rose appliques and the fringe was too cute to pass up at the Dark Water Designs cart. It comes in one other color (sold separately). It also fits really well, and comes in many mesh sizes. There is also an alpha layer included with this top so it is suitable for classic avatars.

Mesh Sizes Included:  Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), ebody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Cute
Cute as Can Be

The other item I picked up at the Dark Water Designs cart, and I’m glad I did, is this “Cute” jogger set. The set includes the hooded jacket and matching jogger style pants in pink and black. This two-piece outfit comes in several mesh sizes, and the jacket and pants can also be worn separately. Additionally there are alpha layers for the jacket and pants so they can be worn by classic avatars. I love the detail in the lettering across the back. It really is very cute!

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs – XL), Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), ebody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), TMP, Ocacin, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

The Cat’s Meow

The Cat's Meow

You may or may not know this, but pretty much anything with a cat on it is my cup of tea.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned it before, one or two million times.  I’m cavorting in this suitcase with the cats, because I wanted to feel what a cat’s life is truly like!  I must say, it’s quite delectable, and I’ve decided to become a cat.  Right after this post!

Meowing Away

I got this delicate dress for 10L at the Wash Cart Sale!  I do highly enjoy the bell sleeves, and of course the kitty on the front!  I think it’s a cute dress to wear to afternoon tea while still retaining a bit of an edge!  Can’t beat catnip and tea leaves!  😉

Sizes

  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • XS – XL with an Alpha Layer

 

Since I’m now a cat, I’m pretty sure I’m overdue on a nap.

Ta-ta!

Fit for a princess!

Maiden_001

Aline has already shown you some great free gifts from the Gacha Garden {here} and {here} but when FabFree reader Victoria sent me a special tip that I could put together a roleplay outfit with two gifts from the event, I knew I had to blog them for you! All you’ll need is the Gimme Gacha group (the group is free to join) and then stop by the respective vendors to nab your gifts and this pretty fantasy look fit for a princess is yours!

Hair please!

This fabulous fantasy hair is free courtesy of Analog Dog at the Gacha Garden event and includes twisted braids in the front and back for a fanciful look. You’ll get a full range of colors with a color change hud and a tinting wheel that will allow you to make the hair almost any color your heart desires. This is fitted mesh and should work with just about any head you might have. It’s a generous gift indeed!

A dress fit for a princess!

Broken Style is also giving a generous gift at the Gacha Garden in the form of their Ursula gown. It includes a tiara as well, making it fit for a princess. It comes in all the standard mesh sizes and includes an alpha in case you need it. You’ll also get a color change hud allowing you to choose between three colors (I’ve included a picture of the hud at the bottom of this post so you can see). Pick this gift up free with your Gimme Gacha tag as well!
