Firelight Hearts

Firelight Hearts
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Is anyone else just now realizing that Valentine’s Day is just a few days away!? I got caught up in all the hearts and cuteness and forgot to pay attention to the actual date. Thankfully there is still time to find something cute to wear. I suggest this fun little dress from HEC (Hot Elegant Clothing) for the WomenStuff group. Also included with this gift is a HUD that lets you change the glow, and  “sheerness” of the dress, or hide it completely for a “strip” effect. The WomenStuff group is just 50 linden to join. This dress has a matching alpha layer as well, so it can be worn by classic non-mesh avatars.

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

Everyone loves FREE hair, especially me! The sleek hairstyle Pru is wearing is a FREE 68 Main event group gift by Firelight. The 68 Main group is FREE to join. With the Firelight gift at 68 Main you’ll get the style in 2 sizes and a color hud with the light brown shade shown and a darker brunette option.

Here are the details, enjoy!

The Cart Sale – The 100

The 100
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I just cannot get enough of these 10 linden finds at The Cart Sale still taking place at The Wash. Not only have I been able to update some of my furniture, I’m getting some great new wardrobe pieces as well. If you’re unfamiliar with The Cart Sale, all the items available from any participating vendor are just 10 lindens.

The 100

Once again I’ve discovered a new-to-me shop, The 100. I picked out two personal favorites from their cart to share with you. I also really dig the store name, it makes me think of the television series with the same name, which I very much enjoyed. Shown on the left, I adore the soft sweet floral pattern on this nightie. It come in several mesh sizes and is a steal for 10 lindens. The cute cowl neck cropped sweater on the right is also just 10 lindens at The 100 cart. I like the sketchy red hearts and arrows,  it’s festive without being too frilly. Both items come in a few other colors as well.

Mesh Sizes Included (Nightie): Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), TMP, Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)
Mesh Sizes Included (Sweater): Fitmesh, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

Retro Hearts

Retro Hearts
Hello Fab Free’rs! As always, I hope this post finds you well. That aside, I have to confess, I’ve never been a huge fan of Valentine’s Day in general. Not for any heartbreak sort of reason but just because it seems so commercial at times. I suppose in the end it is what you make it. This year I’ve been focusing on what I do like. I am loving all the hearts! This is the one time of year you see hearts on everything and heart-shaped everything. Right now you can find the outfit, sunglasses, and necklace Pru is wearing at Fiorella for next to nothing. Keep reading for all the details.

The Outfit

This skirt and halter top combo from Fiorella screams 80s fashion to me. It’s one of those styles that ends up being timeless. I think this look is just pure fun. The skirt and top can be worn together as shown or separately. You could also dress it up a little, or wear it casually depending on what shoes and accessories you wear. To get your copy of this cute outfit head over to this Fiorella location and join the FREE-to-join “Love Gifts” group. There is a group joiner for this group next to the vendor for this outfit. Once you’re wearing your “Love Gifts” group tag, click the gift vendor and the outfit will be delivered for FREE.

Mesh Sizes Included:

The Accessories

While you’re at Fiorella, you’ll surely notice the vendors with the cute heart shaped balloons. These are all special dollarbies for the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday. There are several items to be had, all at 1 linden each. I picked up these cute heart shaped sunnies, and the cute necklace with the heart charm. Each item was again just 1 linden. They come in the color shown only, and are unscripted making them the perfect low-lag accessories.

Here are the details, enjoy!

Goodnight Dolores

Cranberries
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I’m happy you’re here, even though my post might be a little bit somber. As you may or may not have heard, the world lost another iconic musician yesterday. Dolores O’Riordan of the Cranberries passed away leaving behind a legacy as one of rock music’s beloved front women. Dolores was an incredibly talented musician and so much more to those that knew and loved her. She was definitely one of the women I deeply admired as a young person and am still inspired by. I could continue with an entire blog post, or two, speaking about my admiration for Dolores O’Riordan, and the many ways she’s influenced my life and the lives of countless others. I won’t. I’ll just end this explanation and tribute by saying how saddened I am to learn of her death, and how deeply I appreciate her and the incredible gift that is the music she left behind.

A Tribute in Plastik

In tribute to Dolores O’Riordan the designer at Plastik put out this little crop top featuring some of the better known lyrics from one of the most recognized songs by the Cranberries. The halter style top reads “In Your Head, In Your Head, Zombie, Zombie” which was very much a politically charged grunge rock anthem, and still is.  The top comes in several mesh sizes, and is completely FREE for everyone. You can purchase yours at the Plastik main store for zero linden.

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

The Situation has EscalateD

To go with the top from Plastik I picked up the most recent Fab Free group gift hairstyle from EscalateD. To me it has a very ’90s grunge rock aesthetic. The style comes in 2 sizes, each with or without the little stars. This Fab Free exclusive gift also includes a “Fab Free” color hud which has black hair with a wide range of brightly colored ends. There is also a color change hud for the little stars. To get your copy of this edgy hairstyle, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at EscalateD. As always, the Fab Free group is FREE to join.

Here are the details!

Hot Elegant Malvada Mujer

Wait Just a Minute
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope this post finds you well. I have had so much going on, I am not even sure what day it is. One thing I am sure of however, is that I am loving this look made of group gifts and cheapies from Hot Elegant Clothing and La Malvada Mujer. There is something empowering about putting together such a daring look. Second Life lets me experiment with fashion in ways that I might not otherwise. I hope you have as much fun with these items as I did!

Hot Elegant Clothing aka HEC

This revealing outfit is the most recent group gift at HEC. This tiny bandeau style top paired with short shorts are ultra sexy on. Each piece can also be worn separately. This FREE group gift outfit from HEC comes in several mesh sizes and has a customization hud that lets you choose from a few color presets for the belt. There is also a few customization options for the top such as transparency, and the option to hide or show the belt. To get your copy simply join the Hot Elegant Clothing group for a one time fee of just 25 linden, then click the group gift vendor.

Mesh Sizes Included: Standard Mesh ( xxs – L ) w/Alpha Layer, TMP, Maitreya Lara, Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya)

La Malvada Mujer

I don’t mind telling you that I am living for this eye makeup look from La Malvada Mujer. It’s one of several equally edgy and stunning color options in a recent group gift applier set. Called the Nefelina Eyeshadow, I picked up this FREE group gift by first joining the La Malvada Mujer group, it’s FREE to join, and checking the notices. You’ll see this FREE group gift went out on January 3rd, so it should be available for a few more days at least. Finally, this army green-ish lip color is an inexpensive find at the La Malvada Mujer location. I picked up the Underwood Lips for just 10 linden while browsing through the shop. There are 8 total lip colors including this dark green shade Pru is rocking. If the green isn’t something you’d enjoy, there is bound to be at least one you’ll love. Both the eye shadow and lipstick are appliers only.

Makeup Appliers Included: Omega, Genesis

Merry Gothmas

Merry Gothmas
Hey There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’re enjoying the weekend. I know I am enjoying this slightly naughty goth Christmas outfit thanks to group gifts from Pink Hustler, Queenz, and the current Fab Free group gift from Liquid. It feels festive and flirty, like a fun holiday party with friends or date night look. So bring on the eggnog and the Christmas music!

Pink Hustler

These cute braids with the Santa hat and ribbons at the ends are a FREE group gift at Pink Hustler. I really like the look of this style, especially the little strands in the front. They style includes a hud that gives you several “natural” hair color options, and an additional set of pretty pastels. The same hud will also let you pick from red, green, brown, or black for the hat and ribbons. The Pink Hustler group is currently 400 linden to join. I know that sounds like a lot, and it is, however there are quite a few group gifts still available. So if you have the lindens to spare, the Pink Hustler group is worth it in my opinion.

Liquid

To keep my all black holiday ensemble from being too, well all black, I picked up the current Fabulously Free in SL group gift at Liquid. The cute holly leaf face decal is one of 3 holiday themed options in this applier gift. Along with the holly leaves you can choose from a bell, a candy cane. Additionally, each image can be applied in color or black outline only. To get your copy of this fun FREE holiday gift, just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Liquid.

Appliers Included: Catwa, Lelutka

Queenz

This group gift dress from Queenz is the naughty part of the ensemble. What’s so naughty about a sweater dress you ask? This particular dress has long peek-a-boo openings down each side. That bit of hip Pru’s flashing isn’t a wardrobe malfunction. The dress comes in 3 colors, black, brown, and navy. The Queenz in world group is FREE to join at this time. You’ll find this FREE group gift and others waiting on the right side of the shop.

Mesh Sizes Included: Slink Hourglass, Maitreya Lara, eBody Curvy, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

Dilly Dally Dolly

Dilly Dally Dolly Pru

Dilly Dolls

Hello There Fab Free’rs! I’m so glad you’re here. Recently I had the pleasure of rediscovering a shop that at one point in my Second Life was a favorite. That store is Dilly Dolls. Dilly Dolls is a shop with a style that is all their own. Most would probably describe the style as gothic lolita, which is fairly accurate, however it’s a bit more colorful and playful than the average gothic lolita styles. I think the word Kawaii is appropriate.  You can find everything from shoes and dresses to accessories at Dilly Dolls.

Group Gift Room

Each of the cute accessories Pru has on in the above photo are a FREE group gift from Dilly Dolls at this time. The Dilly Dolls group has a one time join fee of 150 lindens. However, there are multiple group gifts still available. Near the entrance to the Dilly Dolls main store you’ll find a circulation desk. Look to the floor for a round teleporter, this will take you to the group only gift room. You will need to be wearing your Dilly Dolls group tag t0 use the teleporter. Once you’ve arrived at the Dilly Dolls group gift room, you’ll notice there are several group gifts available.

The Key

The first gift that caught my eye is this key shaped industrial ear piercing. I think I noticed it first because I see lots of septum piercings and face piercings, but not often an industrial piercing. This unique and detailed gift at Dilly Dolls includes a color change hud that lets you change individual parts of the key.  I had no trouble adjusting mine to fit the Pixie ears from Swallow.

Tea Cup Rings

Look no further than these cute little tea cup rings for a whimsical edition to any outfit. Also a group gift at Dilly Dolls, the rings come in two sizes and include a hud with a unique feature. The hud lets you pick the color of each tea cup from several preset colors, and it lets you choose to hid or show each of the 3 cups for added customization.

Sizes Included: Maitreya, Slink

Sunglasses Folded & Worn

The sunglasses are actually two separate gifts at Dilly Dolls, the pair you can wear, and the pair for being held/displayed. I love the idea of the folded pair as a held accessory and as a photo prop. Both gifts include a color change hud that lets you custom color/choose from presets for the studs, the frame, and the lenses.

Happy Shopping Fab Free! Don’t forget to teleport to the Group Only Group Gift Room for your gifts at Dilly Dolls!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Mithral CHAIN

Mithral CHAIN

CHAIN CHAIN CHAIN

Hello there Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the Fab Free blog. Once again I’ve found myself thinking “How did I miss these” this time about the group gifts I stumbled across at CHAIN. The CHAIN in-world group is just 50 lindens to join and there are currently 4 group gifts available. The simple yet dress Pru is wearing was their October group gift and is thankfully still available. It comes in a Maitreya Lara fit, and includes a color change hud with 6 of solid color options. I’m a sucker for classic black.

Mesh Size Included: Maitreya Lara Only

Another equally fabulous gift currently available at CHAIN is the set of stacked necklaces Pru is wearing. The necklaces are the November group gift at CHAIN. They also come with a color change hud to let you pick the metal tones and the color of the leather cord. Additionally, the fish bone choker can be worn separately from the two necklaces. I think these two gifts look gorgeous together. As I mentioned there are 2 additional group gifts available, a headband with cute lace kitty ears, and a crop top with a choker style collar.

Mithral at Hairology

I coudn’t help myself, I had to share this pretty ginger hairstyle from Mithral. It is another FREE gift at Hairology. This FREEBie comes in the single lovely shade of red shown with two sizes, and an alpha layer. Just in case you missed my previous post about some of the fantastic gifts at the 2nd Anniversary round of Hairology, you can take a look at it here. To celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of Hairology most of the participating designers have a FREE gift available, no group required.

Heavy is the Head that Wears the Crown

Sullen Girl
Hello There Fab Free’rs! You may or may not know that the November round of Gacha Garden is in full swing, and there are lots of  FREE gifts to be had. I went through a few days ago and picked up most of them, and did a little gacha-ing while I was there. While playing around with some of the gachas and the fantastic FREEbies from my Gacha Garden adventure, I came up with this look. I think she’s pretty in a moody sort of way. All the gifts at Gacha Garden are FREE. You will need to join the Gimme Gacha group, which is FREE to join, and wear the group tag. Then just click the gift boxes next to each vendor and your gift will be delivered.

Chocolate Atelier

While at the Gacha Garden, I picked up the FREE gift and played the gacha machine from Chocolate Atelier. The pretty lingerie is just 45 lindens per play, I got lucky and scored the Rare black version after just a few tries. The whimsical twig crown is the FREE gift from Chocolate Atelier. The lingerie comes in several appliers as well as classic system layers. The lingerie and crown pair beautifully together.

Lingerie Appliers Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza, Omega, TMP

Ayashi

The long beautiful wavy pastel hair Pru has is the FREE gift at Gacha Garden from Ayashi. This lovely long hairstyle comes with a pastel color pack with several pretty pastel options. The style also includes a crown which is not shown. The hair also comes in a regular fit and one for those of us with a slightly larger chest.

LIVIA

Yet another fabulous FREE gift at Gacha Garden is this gorgeous nude lip color from LIVIA. This single color lip gloss comes in several appliers and a Classic System layer for non mesh avatars. Don’t forget, you’ll need to join the FREE Gimme Gacha group and wear that group tag to get this and all the other FREE gifts at Gacha Garden.
