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!

Drift Away

Just Dandy

Hello Fabulous Readers!   Winter seems to last so long, and today I found myself needing a little get away.  It can be so refreshing to just relax and let the peace of nature fill you.  The pupster and I escaped this evening to the flower-filled meadow on the lovely Costa Bella sim.   I put on my headset, turned on sounds, and relaxed in the tranquil landscape.  As I listened to the gentle trickle of falling water, the cares of a stressful day faded away.

Now I’m Feeling Just Dandy

With my knotted crop top and pleated mini, I know I looked just as good as I felt in the free gift I picked up from the YM Shop.  The Dandy Outfit includes a playful plaid tie in addition to the shirt and skirt, which is worn as an all-in-one piece.  Talk about cute!  With coordinating bows, a slightly ruffled waistline and a narrow black border on the bodice, this outfit is packed with playful touches.  I ended up wearing the black panties that came with my Maitreya Lara body because the skirt was a bit revealing, but I am sure a pair of tights would have provided coverage as well.  The generous designer included a texture change HUD with 8 options in all, so if you’d prefer a different color scheme, you’re in luck!  To scoop up this free giftie for yourself, simply activate your Fabulously Free in SL group tag, and tap the vendor at the shop.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fitmesh in XS, S, M, L, and XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

I hope you are able to find a peaceful spot for yourself where you can just let your cares drift away, too.  Sometimes in this busy world, we forget to carve out some downtime for ourselves.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley)

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!

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)

Owl Always Love You

Owl Always
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving enjoyed the holiday, and that everyone is having a great week. I was visiting relatives for a few days and while it was a nice visit, I’m genuinely happy to be home. I’ve missed being here; I always do when I have to be away for very long. Now, to the good stuff!

There are just a few weeks left in the fall season, I for one have been enjoying the cooler days and the gorgeous autumn colors. Petite Mort recently set out an adorable set of cropped sweaters perfect for fall as a group gift. One sweater is brown with a cute fox graphic, while the other (pictured above) is a lighter shade of brown with an equally cute owl graphic. I love the extra long sleeves, and the slight cowl neck. Both sweaters come in several mesh sizes. At this time the Petite Mort group is just 75 linden to join. There are also group lucky boards at Petite Mort waiting to be played.

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

Here are the details, enjoy!

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!

Stories to Tell

Stories to Tell
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! It’s the weekend and I’m so glad. I had a long but productive week and now I get to play a little. I hope each of you are enjoying the weekend as well. I’ve got a few group gifts and some event gifts to share with you to create this sort of modern pin-up look. I hope you like these gifts as much as I do, I really had fun putting this look together.

Petry Model Store

There are actually several group gifts at Petry Model Store right now. I picked up two of them. These cute caged over the knee sandals, and the applier outfit are both Petry Model Store group gifts. I thought they went perfectly together. The Petry Model Store group is currently 50 linden to join. The shoes come in several mesh sizes. The outfit is in appliers only, and this single dark blue color only.

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

Outfit Appliers Included: Maitreya Lara, Omega

Goth1c0

If you have not ventured over to The Coven event, you should, not only is there a lot of fun shopping, there are several FREE gifts as well. Goth1c0 put out this forehead tattoo as their FREE gift at The Coven. I love tattoos. This one is a pretty script that reads “Stories to tell..” above the right brow. The tattoo comes in a Catwa applier, and a Classic System layer. To get your copy of this fabulous gift, head over to The Coven and join the event group, it’s FREE to join. Then click the little cauldron outside the Goth1c0 booth and your gift will be delivered.

Chop Zuey

The current round of On9 has a new gift available from Chop Zuey. The jeweled septum piercing Pru is wearing is a FREE gift at the On9 event. The piercing comes in 3 metal tones, black, silver, and gold. There is also a color change hud for the gemstones. Usually you would need to wear an On9 group tag for gifts at the event, however I was able to pick this gift from Chop Zuey up for FREE with no group needed. The gift is waiting at the Chop Zuey booth at On9. Should a group become required, not to worry, the On9 group is FREE to join.

Here are the details, Enjoy!
