Rocking the Unboxing

Rocking the Unboxing

I was hanging around in my photo studio after one of my shopping jaunts.  I generally hate unpacking things after these (frequent) sprees.  Do you have that issue too?  I unpack and then try on my new stuff right away to get over the trauma of all the unboxing my poor little fingers have to go through 😉  The fact that my finds are often free helps me through this tedious task too!

Dark Beauty

My look today is inspired by the fun finds I uncovered at Beauty of Darkness.  This store specializes in the darker side of fashion (hence the name of the store – duh Aline) and they have a generous number of free gifts out as well as a few lucky chairs.  I picked up the Mad Cat socks and the Beauty in Darkness top for free by joining the free group!  They’ve got all sorts of stuff you can mix and match for a bit of a goth look.  Also, yay cats!  The top and tights are appliers and come with Classic System Layers, a TMP applier, and an all-in-one HUD that has options for most mesh bodies.

Another Day, Another Scandal

I was revisiting a few hidden gems in SL, and headed back to Julia’s Scandal.  They’ve got all sorts of new free gifts out including this super adorable and frilly skirt (it comes with a matching bra).  The Venus skirt has several HUD options, including a few lacy looks, and different colours.  Love it!  The Julia’s Scandal group is currently free to join!

Sizes

  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Standard Fitted Mesh

/me surreptitiously hides the other boxes to be unpacked under the couch.

I’m just going to keep this outfit on for a bit longer!

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!

The Sound of Hearts Breaking

The Sound of Hearts Breaking

Ah, mid-January.  You, and your cold winds and mounds of slush are just trying your best to make us sad, aren’t you?  I heard today on the radio that January 15th is the saddest day of the year, and is called Blue Monday.  HAVE NO FEAR, I’ve got all the free gifts to cheer you up!

Hearts Everywhere

Carson was saying HERE that we’re a month away from Valentine’s Day, and you bet your bippy that there are going to be heart themed things all over the place very soon!  This cute corset top is a free subscriber gift from Promagic.  Just TP over to their store, click on the subscriber and BOOM.  Gift.  This corset is part of a shiny set (it comes with a fairly revealing little set of undercrackers….) but I’m pairing it with a skirt to protect my modesty!  It fits Maitreya bodies like a glove!

Makeup Magic

A Fab Free reader tipped us off on this next find – Booty’s Beauty has a whole bunch of free group gifts just waiting for you to snap them up.  I’m wearing the Simple Smoke Eye that comes with an Omega applier.  On my lips is the “Stone” lipstick which also comes with an Omega applier.  There are all sorts of things for you to grab there (whether you’re looking for Catwa, Omega or Lelutka), as well as a few lucky chairs that cycle pretty quickly.  The group is free to join, making my makeup look completely free!  YAAAS.

Now, if you listen closely, you may just hear January huffing and puffing at the fact that we’re not more sad.  Better luck next time, January!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Time for a night on the town!  I’m feeling myself today, and I’m all about being the pampered princess.  That calls for big hair, high heels, and loads of pink.  I can just picture myself now, dancing to Cyndi Lauper, clinking glasses with my girls, and rebuffing any lame-o who makes advances.  Fries before guys, amirite? Uh…right. ANYWAY…

Girls Night

I’m working that late 80’s vibe tonight with the help of a whole bunch of gifts I picked up at the Midwinter Fair!  There are so many cool free gifts there, that putting together this outfit was a breeze!  My hot pink dress comes from the BouBouKi stall, and doesn’t it just make you happy? I paired it with this uber bright clutch by Luas Urban.  I really enjoy the bright colours, as well as the charms that are hanging on the little chain.  Cuteness!  No need to join a group, just pop round the stalls and click on whatever strikes your fancy.  Hurry though, the Midwinter Fair closes on January 17th!

Dress Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Proud as a…

My last little outfit detail is a gift I picked up for free at the Gacha Guardians event.  This fun peacock hair comb just tops my hair perfectly! You can move it around to fit nicely with any hair do you may be rocking at the time.  Just join the free Gimme Gacha group when you land, and pick up your free gifties! Whee!

Wait…who’s that dishy guy over there? Maybe I will dance with someone after all…

Feeling Boss

Feeling Boss

My moods fluctuate now and then.  Yesterday I was feeling sweet and quiet, and today I feel like being the boss.  What I’m really in the mood for is something super sexy and possibly slightly wild.  That’s where D’eVil comes in, with their always free, always awesome clothing for Maitreya.

Shine Time

I was just passing by the store to check on something, when much to my delight I found  that there is a new dress on the shelves, which you can pick up for free with no group join required.   I absolutely adore the texturing on the dress – shiny with a marbleized semi-galaxy looking design.  I love it!  There are so many other free outfits to pick up in D’eVil, and it’s all completely free.  Yum!

Here’s a bit of a closeup, so you can see the detailing and because ughhh so nice……

The Masked Soirée

The Masked Soirée

I was invited to an exclusive masked soirée at the Manor.  The invite said “dress to impress”, and being someone who takes people at their word, I planned my outfit with aplomb.  There is nothing that will turn heads quite like a shiny bodysuit, and if it’s free, then who am I to complain?  I have to say, heads swiveled so fast in my direction, I wouldn’t be surprised if they all got whiplash!

Head-Turner

I found this hot little number at Belle Époque, where they have several great Lucky Letter boards set up outside.  There are so many fantastic outfits, but this one really fit the bill!  You can pick it up without joining any group for absolutely free, just wait for your letter to come up!  The bodysuit is a Maitreya Lara exclusive.

The gorgeous peacock feather mask is also available at Belle Époque and is one of the Fab Free Group Gifts!  All you need to do is activate your Fab Free tag, and click away!  The Fab Free Group is always free to join and new gifts are being added all the time!

Well, I’ve got a full dance card, so I’m off to dance the night away with some handsome suitors….

Chillsville

Chillsville

Well, it’s back to work for me in RL, and quite frankly I don’t wanna.  I’d much rather continue taking it easy, and enjoying the good things in life.  It’s also rather cold in my part of the world, which can be somewhat offputting, to say the least!  In SL, I’m going to take it easy and enjoy the kind of winter you see in the movies – white, not too cold and a little magical.  Sure, it’s not really like that, but a girl can dream!

Hunting for Style

I hopped on the trail of the Womenstuff Hunt, and made my way to Lune Bleue.  I nosed my way about the store and found the red t-shirt that is the hunt object, which is FREE!  Inside I found this delightful wintery outfit, which is complete with top, skirt, jacket and the little booties you see.  The top and skirt go on in one simple click, and the coat can be worn seperately!  It may not be the most practical winter outfit for RL, but in SL I’m feeling quite fashionable and winter-proof!

Sizes

  • Fitted Mesh with an Alpha Layer
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Fitted Mesh

Time to go and warm up, so I’ll catch you pretty little things later!

Chocolate Lola
Happy New Year Fab Free! I hope you’re all looking forward to a brand new year, I know I am. It feels good to be excited for the future. For my first post of 2018 of course I found pretty lacy things! I also wanted to share with you another of the still available group gifts at Pumec. I showed the Pumec December group gift in my last post “Pumec Cherry” and was inspired to show more. First, the floral bra and panties set by Chocolate Atelier!

Chocolate Atelier at Japonica

While waiting to cheer in the New Year, I came across a new-to-me event called Japonica. As the name would suggest the entire event is Asian themed. I came across a small number of gifts while exploring the event, and this bra and panties set from Chocolate Atelier was one of those “I must have that” moments. The set is completely FREE, just click the vendor and buy the gift for $0 linden. This FREE gift at Japonica includes appliers and classic system layers in 2 color variations. I added a copy of the vendor ad by Chocolate Atelier so you can get a good look at this fabulous FREE gift.

Appliers Included: Slink, Omega, Maitreya, Belleza, TMP

Lola Up Close

Pumec

As I mentioned above, this lovely face is a past group gift at Pumec that is still currently available. I showed the current group gift in my last post “Pumec Cherry.”  This FREE group gift was the November gift at Pumec, her name is Lola, and I love her! Lola comes in a complete fat pack with body applier huds for each skin tone, a head applier for each tone, classic system layer skins, and a matching shape.  Currently the Pumec group is 299 linden to join, and there are several gifts available.

Body Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, Omega  Head Applier Included: Catwa Only

Nesting Season

Nesting Season

Ah, January.  Time to nest.  When the world goes cold and all I want to do is curl up under the covers and stay warm.  My corner of the world is pretty chilly right now, with records for freezing temperatures being broken daily.  In SL, the temperature doesn’t really matter, so I’m putting on something sultry and tossing myself onto a bed to keep the chill pixels at bay!

Free Lingerie!

I got a scoop that FurtaCor has put out a new free group gift that will only be around for a limited time.  This lingerie set comes with the top and underwear, as well as these sparkly heels to keep with my New Year’s Resolution of bringing more sparkle and shine into my life.  The FurtaCor group is currently free to join, so hop on over and get yourself some new unmentionables!

Sizes

  • Hourglass
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya

Now, off with you!  I’m going to hide under the covers….

Low Key Glam

Low Key Glam

Happy 2018 Fab Free!

I am ready for a fabulous me in 2018, complete with more glitter, happiness and pizza. In order to start the year off right, I’m keeping my outfit kinda low-key glam, because 2018 calls for a bit of shine and a smidge of comfort.

Dress it Up

I got my sorta chill dress for free at Spirit & Kitja, who have put a few group gifts out, one of which Love posted earlier HERE.  I like that this dress is made of a comfortable fabric, and yet still has a hint of sexy, as well as the small 2018 that is just visible on my hip.  You can pick this dress up by joining the Spirit & Kitja group for free and clicking on the gifts under the tree.  Enjoy!

Sizes

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass

Shoe know it!

Phedora is being super generous for the New Year and giving as a group gift 500L in store credit.  There are plenty of great shoes to choose from, and as my giftie I picked up the Anael heels which are lovely with stylized wings on the sides.  You can join the Phedora group for 300L and see which fancy shoes make you feel awesome this New Year.

Lucky Locks

I spent a bit of time at Olive again, and won myself another smashing hairdo, which comes in a fun assortment of bubblegum hues.  I always say that a bit of colour goes a long way, especially if it’s free!  You can pick up the Sabrina hair without a group join, just by parking yourself prettily by the boards and waiting til your letter comes up!  My fingers are crossed for you!

Happy 2018, gorgeous readers – I hope it comes with oh so much awesome for you!
