Come Have a Drink With Me


You Need a Drink

Happy Weekend Fab Free’rs! It’s been a minute since I got dressed up to go out, and a few of the free group gifts at Casse Lustre gave me the perfect outfit for a fun night out. The Casse Lustre group is free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available. I picked this halter style dress, and off-the-shoulder faux fur coat to share with you. You’ll find the group gifts at Casse Lustre waiting near the entrance to the store.

The Dress – This swanky little halter style dress by Casse Lustre comes in the black version shown as well as an equally pretty white version. Both color versions come in a single unspecified mesh size. To get your copy, simply wear your Casse Lustre group tag and click the gift vendor.

The Coat – When I was in college I had a friend who was a fashion design major and she always referred to this sort of shaggy fake fur as “muppet” and I’ve never been able to think of it as anything else. It makes me laugh, and I love it. This off-the-shoulder fur coat at Casse Lustre is another free group gift. It also comes in a single mesh size, and includes a color change hud that lets you pick from eight preset colors (four dark, and four pastel).

In the Quiet of the Afternoon


In the Quiet of the Afternoon
Hello Fab Free’rs! Happy weekend! I’m so glad you’re here. For this post I have the most booty-licious sweater dress ever and the cutest chair and table set to share with you. Keep reading for all the details.

The Dress – The pretty sweater dress Pru has on is one of several free group gifts available at Ellnique. The Ellnique group is free to join. I love the long sleeves and high neck of this dress, it also happens to be very shapely. I don’t mind telling you I changed Pru’s shape a little for this dress, her curves came out a little too dangerous when she first put it on. This dress definitely has a corseted look to it. This and the other group gifts can be found upstairs.
Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Furniture – I’m not sure what took me this long to pick up the latest group gift at Kraftwork, it’s cute as can be! This “Gipsy” set includes the chair, table, and lantern shown. Each of the 3 items is copy so you can rez out multiple. I love the bright colors and playful floral patterns. This set is one of quite a few group gifts, all of which are furniture, landscaping, or other home related items. The Kraftwork group is just 25 linden to join, and the beautiful gifts are well worth the effort.

Here are the details!

Before I Had My Coffee

Before I Had Coffee
Oh Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you’ve all survived the holidays so far. I for one do not want to see let alone eat another slice of pie for a very long time. Otherwise I’m doing pretty well. I picked up gifts by Vinyl from two different events that really go well together. I also picked up a pretty new group gift skin at PumeC. All in all, not a bad way to start the weekend!

The Shirt – This tied graphic tee is one of the free gifts I picked up by Vinyl. This gift is available for free at the Shop & Hop event. No group is needed. The top reads “Dear Santa I’m Sorry For What I Said Before I Had Coffee.” Well I do not mind admitting that there are definitely moments when I should make such an apology myself, and not just to Santa! The top comes in several mesh sizes, and is just too cute to pass up.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus)

The Shoes – I think these crochet red chucks by Vinyl are adorable. They are a free gift available to everyone who visits the Vinyl booth at Uber. No group is needed for this gift, simply click the sign that says “XMas Gift” and the chucks will be sent to you. The shoes come in a few sizes and are every bit as cute on as they look in the photo.
Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

The Skin – The Skin Pru is wearing is a free group gift at PumeC. Not only does it come with a Genus head applier, but a full fat-pack of skin tones with appliers are included as well as a set of base skins. The PumeC group has a one time join fee of 399 linden to join, and there are quite a few past group gifts still available. Also, there’s a second December group gift skin available, and a promise of a possible third December gift still to come!
Appliers Included: Body Appliers – Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, Omega /  Head Applier – Genus

Fab Free Designer of the Week 12/16/2018 – La Bella Boutique

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! As I mentioned in a previous Designer of the Week type post, we’ve been adding some new members to our Fabulous Designers team. This week I’m happy to share with you La Bella Boutique. Just as the name might suggest, this shop has girly-girl written all over it. La Bella Boutique is self described as an “everything shapes and couture store.” Which I feel is an accurate description. There does seem to be an eclectic mix of everything from casual tops and dresses to evening wear and even some tattoos. Most (if not all) clothing items did appear to be mesh, with of course applier tattoos. The store is also quite girlishly decorated for Christmas, it’s a virtual pink winter wonderland complete with a menagerie of fantasy and woodland creatures frolicking around a giant pink Christmas tree. To me this just adds to the shopping experience in a fun way. Along with all the fabulous finds, there are quite a few opportunities at La Bella Boutique to score some free goodies.

Like many shops this time of year, La Bella Boutique does have an Advent calendar. It is for the La Bella Boutique group only, however the group is free to join. I’m not positive if past gifts are available or not, but even so there are still quite a few days left on this 24 day Advent calendar. Speaking of group gifts, there are tons and tons and tons and oh my so many La Bella Boutique group gifts available. The top photo in the above collage shows the row after row of La Bella Boutique group gifts. Additionally, there are several group only Lucky Letter chairs. Finally, there are the store’s associated group gifts for members of other groups like Fabulously Free in SL. The Fab Free gift is of course free, and if you’re not already a Fab Free group member the group is free to join also. I hope you enjoy what is left of this Fabulous weekend. Happy Shopping! Also, before I forget, as you can see in the top photo, La Bella Boutique is looking for female bloggers. If you’ve got your own blog and are interested, there’s a blogotex inside the shop where you can fill out an application. Good luck!

I Come From the Water

I Come From the Water
Hello Fab Free’rs, Happy Sunday-fun-day! I hope everyone has been having a good weekend. Mine has been great so far. Today I am so excited to tell you about the free August Subscriber gift from BYRNE. This gorgeous peacock feather print summer dress is this month’s free gift, and I can’t say enough nice things about it. The skirt is sheer from the upper thigh down, and has a hi-lo type look. I’m sure there’s a name for this type of skirt, but I am not up on my fashion terms. Maybe that’s a sign I need to have some intellectual curiosity here!

So of course I wore this dress to the beach, the colors and the feathered pattern gave me some tropical summer feels. This peacock dress from BYRNE was sent out a few days ago to all Subscriber members. If you missed it just head over to BYRNE and click the subscriber. You might have to rejoin. Subscribers can be tricky sometimes, like anything in Second Life! ha The dress comes in several sizes and includes a head scarf not shown in the photo.

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

Here are the details, enjoy!

On the Water

Out on the Water
Hey There! Hi There! Hello Fab Free’rs! Sorry it has been a minute since I posted anything. My last intended post was doomed by technical issues. It doesn’t happen often, but it does happen. Still, it’s a shiny new day and I have some awesome 7 Seas Fishing prizes from Sn@tch to share with you. Pru’s entire look from head to toe is made up of fishing prizes you can fish for at Sn@tch. I’ll ad a copy of the advertisement for this cute look from Sn@tch below. It shows other available items not shown in my photo. If you’ve never been “fishing” before, as Love says “If you don’t have a 7 Seas Fishing Rod, they are a 100L one time purchase from the vendor at Sn@tch. Keep the rod, and use it for future prizes too! No bait is required.”

On this fishing excursion at Sn@tch Pru managed to score this shoulder length hairstyle that has some pretty soft romantic curls, the eyelet ruffled top, tropical print mini skirt, and nude flats. There are several versions of each of these items you can “catch” while fishing at Sn@tch. Also, like gachas, these items are transferable so you can trade them!

Skirt & Top Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), eBody, TMP, Standard Mesh, Tonic (Curvy, Fine) ** The skirts have an alpha layer as well, so they are suitable for Classic Avatars. 

Here are the details, enjoy!

Daydreaming of Lisa Frank

Dreaming of Lisa Frank
Hello hello Fab Free! Summer in the southern part of the U.S. (and just about everywhere else from what I understand) has become synonymous with blazing heat. It’s hot out ya’ll! It’s easier to stay cool when you can lounge in the shade wearing a cute little summer dress and open-toe shoes. Both these summer wardrobe essentials are free group gifts you won’t want to miss.

The DressHilly Haalan has more than one free group gift available. The dress Pru has on is the “Debbie” dress. It comes in several sizes, and includes a texture change hud with quite a few graphic tee style options and an equal number of solid colors to choose from. The Hilly Haalan group is also free to join at this time. This fun yellow version with the leopard spots made me instantly think of Lisa Frank. Don’t know who Lisa Frank is? Google her. You’re welcome in advance for all the colorful rainbow goodness. P.S. There’s a copy of the original vendor ad for the Debbie dress toward the bottom of the post.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

The Shoes – These fierce looking purple shoes from Heels are almost as hot as the weather! I kind of want to wear them with everything. The Heels by Morgan W. group is free to join at the moment. These shoe come in the deep purple color shown with a few size options.
Sizes Included: Belleza, Maitreya, Slink

Pink Like A Flamingo

Pink Like A Flamingo
Happy Tuesday Fab Free! Once again adorable pink flamingos have found their way onto the Fab Free blog. I think this must be the summer of flamingos. Flamingo summer maybe? Either way I dig it! These cute short shorts are a new group gift at zOOm. You also might recall I mentioned a free group gift hairstyle at Letituier in my previous post “See No Evil.” This pink and blonde dip dyed hairstyle is it! Lastly, I added this cute little polka-dotted dollarbie top from Teepa to complete the look. I hope you like it!

The Hair – This fun summer hairstyle is a free group gift at Letituier. The Letituier group is free to join at this time, so don’t miss out. Also if you haven’t shopped the Retirement Sale happening at Letituier, you’ll want to be sure to do that too. The sale hairstyles are just 55 linden per color pack. This group gift style comes in the single color shown.

The Top – This one is for the Maitreya Lara body wearers. This tiny tube top is a Marketplace dollarbie by Teepa. It comes in the single size, however there are other Marketplace listings for the same top in different textures in the Teepa Marketplace store.

The Shorts – These shorts are so cute on, even though they are a tad shorter and lower than I would usually wear. They are a current group gift at zOOm. The zOOm group is 75 linden to join at this time and there is an entire shelf full of group gifts available. If flamingos aren’t you’re thing, don’t worry, this gift has a texture change hud with 10 different textures to pick from. All of them are cute!

Red White and Blue

Red White and Blue
Hello hello Fab Free’rs! Sorry it’s been so long since my last post, that pesky Real Life is relentless at times. Needless to say I am happy to be back, I missed you guys! If you live in the States like I do, our most patriotic holiday, Independence Day, is nearly here.  Personally I just want to celebrate with friends and and family and take advantage of the opportunity for some summer fireworks. It wouldn’t be the 4th of July without some red, white, and blue gear to show your patriotic spirit. I picked up two free Independence Day inspired gifts to share, I hope you like them as much as I do!

The Bikini Top – I think this free star shaped bikini top from Dirty Princess is a must-have. Not only is it perfectly patriotic, it’s also something I’d wear all summer, no holiday needed. This free Dirty Princess group gift comes in 2 versions, the one with white ties shown, and one with red ties. The Dirty Princess group is free to join. This free gift is sized for Maitreya only. To get yours head over to Dirty Princess, enter the store at the entrance with the horses, the gift is waiting next to the desk.

The Phone – For a little fun ChicChica put out this cute patriotic cell phone out as a free for everyone gift. There’s no group needed, just purchase the gift for zero linden. This free USA themed phone has a hold pose. You’ll find this freebie waiting on the ChicChica desk.

Here are the details, enjoy!
