On the 5th Day of Christmas…

120522 - On the 5th Day of Christmas - 01

Guess what?  It’s time for Day 5!  I was feeling very classy today with this post, but with a vintage twist.  I love each of these pieces that are included in this post and had to share them.

The beautiful chair I am sitting on is today’s gift at Zerkalo.  The fabric is such a lovely vintage/shabby-chic design.  There are several PG animations included as well.  Zerkalo‘s advent calendar is FREE for group members and the group is FREE to join.

I swooned over the luggage/travel decor in the center.  Aesthetically at least, I would have loved to live in that era.  But I have to remember these things were normal then and didn’t look old and vintage and cool like they do us now.  This decor set (all one piece) is the gift from Yasum today.  I got a cool surprise today when I was writing this up…it has poses!!!  Three female poses and three male.  Yasum‘s gifts are FREE with no group needed.

Next I have to share this gorgeous little Christmas tree from Lelutka.  I didn’t realize this but apparently they send a FREE tree every year to their group members (FREE to join).  This is not part of an advent calendar, but such an awesome gift, I had to tell you all about it.  And it totally fit the theme I was going for.


120522 - On the 5th Day of Christmas - 02

Now…this dress.  This is what started this whole post.  I opened this FREE dress gift up from Next Door Designs for Day 4 (still available) and I fell in love!  First I need to give a little instruction on getting their gifts.  You must join the group, which is FREE to join (you can right click the calendar and edit to find the group name) and then you right click and select to pay L$1 on the day you want to receive.  That L$1 is then immediately refunded.  Here are the fits for this dress:

  • Belleza Freya & Isis
  • eBody Reborn
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique

I threw on this lovely white stole from Day 3 of the Glitzz advent calendar, also still available.  The calendar at Glitzz is FREE with no group needed.  This stole comes fit for:

  • Belleza Freya
  • Kupra
  • Legacy & Perky
  • Maitreya & Petite
  • Slink Hourglass

120522 - On the 5th Day of Christmas - 03

The last thing I want to talk about is this jewelry from Versois et Mailloux.  The earrings are from Day 4 and the necklace from today.  Both are still available.  They are unrigged and come with an HUD.  You do need the group to get the gifts at Versois et Mailloux, but it is FREE to join and the gifts are FREE as well.

There are a few other things in the photos from advent calendars too so be sure to check out all the credits below!

Until next time!

Well Behaved Women, Rarely Make History

Well Behaved Women, Rarely Make History

Hey FabFree!

I hope everyone is having an amazing weekend, so far! So, I went browsing around stores in-world this morning and totally remembered a terrific creator with an entire wall of freebies! A lot of her items have been done on FabFree, but I love pretty things, as much as everyone else. The group is free to join, so all you have to do is wear the tag and shop away!!

This black halter gown by Coco Designs was released two years ago, and is so beautifully done I felt the need to share, even now! The dress comes with a necklace to complete the look, if you so wish. I absolutely love the high slit leg and low plunging back, it really brings a sexy appeal to such a simple gown. This gown I honestly believe could be dressed up for a formal affair and could be worn as a maxi dress of sorts. Put on some heels and your hair up and head on out to that formal affair and turn some heads or put on some cute sandals and your hair in a ponytail or braids, maybe some spiffy sunglasses and look nice and comfy for a day around town. The best part is the gown cost you $0L and you look like you just stepped off the runway!

Coco Designs- Halter Gown Sizing:

  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Slink

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!

Vendor Artwork/Hud NOT my artwork!

A Stroll Through Paris

Visiting Paris_001

If only I could teleport to Paris for a stroll in real life too…

I was feeling restless after a week of not being able to blog because of real life responsibilities and so I picked up a dress at a new-to-me shop that my hunting buddy mentioned and teleported over to Paris 1900 for a stroll around Hyde Park. I took the picture above to show off my new formal wear. Isn’t it lovely! Almost as lovely as Paris!

The Dress

You can have this dress for free too! Just stop by MH Unique Design don the group tag (the group is free to join) and pick up this beautiful group gift. There are several other group gifts out as well.

The thing that jumped out at me was the colossal number of lucky letter boards at the store! I couldn’t believe my eyes! Your letter was sure to be up on at least one of the boards somewhere and it was sure to be your lucky day. I picked up several lucky letter board outfits while I was there as there as well that were also free and will try to blog those for you as quick as I can!

In the meantime, this dress comes in the following sizes:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • Fitmesh XS – XL
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Down to There

Down to There

Oh, you know how it is, getting invited to balls and galas every other minute.  Can’t keep my calendar clear for half a second these days… Or maybe it’s just me enjoying some me time and posing by a fountain wearing a free gown that is cut down to there…  Most likely the second option, come on people…

Emerald Stunner

Yep, this gown is absolutely free.  No, I’m not joking.  This gorgeous emerald gown is a free group gift at the new Sense event.  You can pick it up by joining the Sense Group for free, and clicking ever so delicately on the vendor (or just mash your mouse, I know I did…ha!).   I love the daring cut, as well as the sparkly bits.  So prettyyyy.  Sense is open until February 8th!

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass

Fit for a Lady

Enchanted_001_001

Roleplay is always near and dear to my heart, so when I find an outfit or dress for a bargain that I can share with you dear Fabulouses, I am thrilled! I was opening my Womenstuff Hunt gifts and ran across a gown that would be perfect for roleplay and wanted to share it with you.

Fit for a Lady

I stopped by Tiffany Designs and after a little hunting for the free red t-shirt, I picked up their Womenstuff gift and brought it home to unpack. It’s a lovely formal gown that is suitable for any formal occasion but also perfect for roleplay settings as well. It includes the gown I am showing above, as well as a white fur shoulder stole, a gold necklace, and long flowing sleeves. I’m only wearing the dress itself for the purpose of the picture.

Dress size fits:

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

Dinner Date

Dinner Out_001

I have a dinner date, and needed something spectacular to impress my friend. I know he won’t leave me waiting long, after all, he helped me hunt down both my necklace and my dress…

Don’t miss out…

… the Women Only Hunt ends December 31st, so you’ll need to hurry to get the last of the beautiful free prizes if you haven’t made all the stops yet. In preparation for my date, I stopped by Secrets and picked up the free Bey Necklace. It comes in two separate pieces and with a color change hud with 9 color choices for the metal. You can even change each part of the necklace separately. Color choices included some unique metal choices such as turquoise, pink, and violet, as well as the traditional black, silver, and gold.

As good as gold…

… is this Selene Black Lace Dress by Glitter. It’s the free group gift dress celebrating 6,000 group members. The Glitter group is free to join so you can pick up this dress for free too. It’s got a sheer bodice and a slightly sheer skirt. So if you’re modest, you might want to wear a pair of panties underneath.

Sizes included for the dress:

  • Classic XS – XL
  • TMP
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Hourglass
  • Belleza

Some Second Life Snow

Dream_001

“When you have a dream, you’ve got to grab it and never let it go.” Carol Burnett

I’ve been dreaming a lot about a white Christmas. Sure I can find plenty of snow in Second Life, but all I’ve had here where I live is the cold, cold, cold. No snow yet. I admit, I miss the flurries and white just a bit. Meanwhile, I’ll settle for the pretty white, of Second Life snow, until real life delivers!

Some Second Life Snow…

PixelArt showed off some snow with a special free POE Hunt gift that is a 4 prim snow photo studio. The studio includes 10 different winter backdrops including the one I am showing off in the picture, two actual prim trees that you can just glimpse in my picture, and a set of very nice poses that you change by clicking on a snowflake at the top of the studio. It’s a beautiful free snowy gift!

Some Glam…

My glamourous dress is the free POE Hunt gift from Paisley Daisy and is perfect for winter glam parties, nights on the town, ballgowns and formal occasions, and those ever popular Christmas parties. This full length gown with the generous side split is luscious with its generous array of shimmering colors and comes in may sizes.

Available Dress Sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS – L
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Belleza

Queen of Autumn

Queen of Autum_001

I have a special free roleplay gown for you. Though if you skip the cloak and high neck collar on this gown, the red gown and mesh red gloves, make this gown fitting for any formal occasion as well.

Stop by…

Just make a stop by BlueMoon Enterprise which is housed inside of Silvan Moon Design and The White Armory. You’ll need to go inside the main-store of The White Armory, then find the BlueMoon Enterprise building inside. Once inside BlueMoon, make your way to their gift station. This gift is free with your group tag and the group is free to join as well! You’ll get the gown in several sizes, the fitted mesh gloves (they fit my Maitreya body perfectly), the high neck collar with attached necklace, and the shoulder pieces.

Dress sizes available:

  • Classic sizes XXS – M (the Medium fit my Maitreya body well)
  • Slink fitted
