Red Bird


Red Bird

Hello Fab Free’rs! I found some hot freebies waiting at the Sense event and I’m super excited to share them with you. Both the dress and the necklace are free group gifts by Alter at the Sense event. I can’t say for certain if the two were made to go together or it’s just a happy coincidence. Either way, I think they make an awesome pair. Keep reading and I’ll explain exactly how to get both items for free.

The Dress – Not only is this sexy little red dress free, it’s fitted for just about everyone. It comes in quite a few mesh sizes, and includes an alpha layer for classic avatars. You’ll find the “Vixen” dress by Alter at the Sense event. Toward the back of the event there is a row of several group gifts, this dress is a free gift for members of the Mejora tu Apariencia or MTA group. The MTA group is free to join. Simply join the group then click the gift box while wearing your group tag.

Sizes Included: Fitmesh (xs-XL), Ebody, Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), TMP, Tonic (Curvy, Fine)

The Necklace – Like the dress, this “Vianney” necklace is a free group gift at the Sense event. For this gift you’ll need to be wearing the Sense group tag. The Sense group is also free to join. Also, the necklace has resize scripts for easy fitting.

P.S. Though not shown, I thought it would be good to mention, there’s also a free men’s gift by Alter for the Sense group at the Sense event. It’s a complete outfit with shirt, pants, and shoes. The outfit is called “Owen”, and it happens to be red and black which would match the dress perfectly.

Here are the details!

The Oracle


The Oracle

Hello Fab Free! I’m so glad you’re here. This look I came up with for Pru reminded me of an Oracle like the ones in stories about ancient Rome. Maybe it’s the fiery eyes, or the detailed pendant. Both items are free gifts at the Summoning Spring Fair. I used several gifts from the Summoning Spring Fair to create this unique look. I hope you enjoy them.

The Hair – As I mentioned there are lots of free gifts to be had at the Summoning Spring Fair. CHARME happens to have 2 gifts. This swing-bob style hair is their free gift, and if you pick up both of the CHARME gifts you’ll get the hairstyle with 4 total color change huds. This free hairstyle also has a unique feature that lets your color/texture the top strands of the hair separately from the rest to give the style a lot of dimension and tons of color combinations.

The Tattoo – This mandala-like forehead tattoo is the Summoning Spring Fair gift from Fallen Gods. It comes in classic system layers along with an Omega applier. That means this freebie is suitable for mesh (Omega compatible) avatars and classic non mesh avatars. Not to mention with all the color choices, you could wear it with anything!

The Eyes – I think these intense eyes by Cubic Cherry might be my favorite of the free gifts at the Summoning Spring Fair. They come in several vibrant colors. This git set includes a pair of mesh eyes, a matching alpha layer, an optional shadow add-on for extra detail, a texture change hud, and an Omega applier hud for Omega compatible eyes.

The Necklace – Finally, this beautiful necklace is by On a Lark, and is also a free gift at the Summoning Spring Fair. I would consider this item to be unisex. It comes with a texture change hud that lets you pick from several preset options for the shiny stone, and 3 metal choices for the chain and setting.

Here are the details!

Hair – C H A R M E – Valentine – Monotones – Free Gift @Summoning Spring Fair

Here comes the sun

Here comes the sun

Oooooh FabFree, it’s been quite the weekend in RL. It poured down rain for 4 solid days, I’ve been cooped up with two stir crazy tiny people, there was a leak in my ceiling (but luckily it was just a vent leaking and not the roof), and to top it all off I have the worst cold ever. I think I might be dying. So if this is my last post, it was nice knowing you. RL me has been just fine at handling everything although SL me has been in a bit of a mood for entirely different reasons…I’ll let the facial expression speak for itself. But things have to look up sometime, right? Here’s hoping that the sun really is coming out!

On9 turns my mood around!

I’ve been neglecting my shopping lately but when I saw on Seraphim that this is a “special gift round” of On9 I hopped on over to have a look. Almost every designer has a free gift out and there is no group required! I’m wearing two of them today. I got my fun layerfull (yup, that’s a word now) dress free from ArisArisB&W. It come with a HUD for 4 cute pattern options and in sizes for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis, & Venus
  • Ebody
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine

I thought this necklace went perfectly with the dress. It is the free gift at On9 from EXiiA.

I hope that you’ve had a better weekend than me, and that you have a fantastic week!

I’ll hold on to what I’m missing the most

I'll hold on to what I'm missing the most

Ahhhh can’t you just feel the sea breeze on your face and smell that salt in the air? Those are definitely some of my favorite things, but I’ll try to focus because I have exciting things to tell you about!

Today is a big day. Let me count the ways:

  1. Two posts in one day! But maybe not really because I did the one from this morning last night. Still counts though.
  2. On this day, 3 months ago, I did my first post for FabFree! Can you believe that you’ve been putting up with me for three whole months already? Yeah, me neither.
  3. The Cart Sale starts today!  If you’re not familiar with this sale, it’s pretty simple. Just tp over to The Wash and you’ll see lots of carts lining the road, full of wonderful offerings. There’s clothes, furniture, decor, and so on…a nice little mix of everything. There are great designers selling things for 10L each, with some freebies sprinked in as well. What’s not to love?

My Favorite Flower

Tulips are my favorite flower. They are so pretty and happy and springy, I just love them. They were even my wedding flowers (RL not SL…I’ve never had a wedding in SL but that’s a story for a different day). So when I saw the lovely tulip pattern on this great maxi dress from baci, I knew right away that it would be my first post for The Cart Sale! It comes in these sizes:

  • Ebody Curvy
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

It’s just the perfect sweet, casual look to wear as summer winds down.

Just let me have my fun tonight, a’ight

Just let me have my fun tonight, a'ight

I tend to forget about Pink when I’m shuffling music which is unfortunate because she’s got some really great songs, like the one that I borrowed my title from for this post. I had to listen to it like 3 times to decide which line to use, I wanted to use all of them! …but that would have been a ridiculously long title. Anyway, today I’m wearing a whole bunch of Suicidal Unborn. There are a ton of free group gifts available and they’re all really great, so I’ve combined three of them here – my top, necklace, and eyes.

The Shirt

Shall we discus my shirt first? Ohhhh the shirt. lol I really like it. Because seriously, who hasn’t felt this way? Especially in Second Life where I would argue that the boys in question are not necessarily more prevalent, but definitely bolder. It’s a bit crass perhaps, but oh so accurate! Because there is only one way to say some things. This particular free group gift has an included HUD containing 6 color options and comes in 5 sizes, XXS-L. It did take a bit of alpha’ing to make it fit but I was able to get a perfect fit easily.

The Eyes

If you’re an eye snob like me, then you have to go to Suicidal Unborn. Seriously, the eyes are gorgeous. There are gacha machines in the store with eyes and lots of really cool styles available, but these are a free group gift! I tried to crop my picture a bit tight so you can see them, they are so so pretty. You can also click the picture to see it in flickr if you’d like to get a closer view. My only issue with the group gift eyes is that there is no catwa applier (the other eyes in the store do have a catwa applier) but that seems like a minor gripe, all things considered. I’m just really terrible, bad, and no good at editing eyes so please excuse me if they’re not fitted quite right. What it DOES come with is classic eyes, mesh eyes, and a HUD fuuuull of colors to choose from! The HUD also lets you change the left and right eye independent of each other, so you can have 2 different color eyes of you want to. It’s really fantastic and so pretty. Did I say that already? Because they’re really pretty.

The Necklace

I love finding quality jewelry and this cool choker totally falls into that category. It has interlocking chain in the front and the back is a leather band. It also includes a HUD that allows you to chain the color of the metal and has 3 options for how distressed the leather is. All as part of a free group gift.

The Suicidal Unborn group is 100L to join but there are quite a lot of gifts available. I would happily have paid that for any one of these gifts, and instead I get ALL of them plus a bunch more. Yes, please! You can find these and all of the other group gifts behind the front desk when you enter the store.

I Will Sparkle Like A Wealthy Woman’s Neck

I Will Sparkle Like A Wealthy Woman's Neck

There are soooo many group gifts available to the FabFree group, and they are always being added to and changing. Today I wanted to show you two of the gifts that I think go really well together! To get them, you’ll just need to join the free FabFree group or activate your tag, and head over to each store.

I.M. Collection

How gorgeous is this dress? It’s classy but still fun and sexy. The texturing is truly lovely, I’m really impressed with the quality. It is the free FabFree group gift at I.M. Collection. The dress comes in sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • HG
  • Maitreya
  • Phys
  • Venus
  • and 4 Fitmesh sizes S-XL

Chop Zuey

My pretty necklace comes in silver and gold, but I’m typically more of a silver girl so that’s the one I’m wearing. I think it’s just perfect with this dress, but I could also think of lots of other things to wear it with too! It is the free FabFree group gift at Chop Zuey.

To keep up these and all of the other awesome FabFree group gifts, you know what to do. The list is over there! ~~~~>

She’s Like The Wind

She's Like The Wind

Happy Monday! I’ve been doing a bit of event hopping and have found some really great gifts on my travels. I was excited to put together another cute, beachy look to show you.

I carried a watermelon

My mind is a strange place sometimes. The super cute watermelon pattern on this dress reminded me of the line in Dirty Dancing when Baby first met Johnny and blurted out that awkward line. But there’s nothing awkward about this great dress. It’s really fabulous and comes in sizes for Freya, Hourglass, Isis, and Maitreya. It’s a free group gift from Entice at Redeux. The Redeux VIP group is free to join. There are soooo many great gifts there. Aline showed some of them already and I wouldn’t be surprised if more of them popped up here as well.

Good Vibes

I also stopped by the Good Vibes Fair and snatched up this free necklace from Vanilla Bae. It has a starfish on it and a little medallion that says “High Tides, Good Vibes.” I’d say that’s my kind of necklace. There is no group to join, just find the vendor at Vanilla Bae’s booth. You can either pay it 1L (you’ll get it back) or touch it and choose deliver. You’ll get the necklace in both gold and silver, as well as rigged for Maitreya, rigged for Slink, and unrigged. I know it’s a little hard to see on my photograph, so here’s the vendor picture so you can see how pretty it is.

In My Dreams You’re Touching My Face

In My Dreams You're Touching My Face

I haven’t been to La Vie in a few weeks and decided to head over there to take my picture today. OMG it is so different and still so pretty. It’s seriously the perfect place to explore and take pictures.

The outfit

There are two new free group gifts at Canimal, plus a bunch of other previous gifts, and the group is free to join. I love this sexy, silky little one piece outfit. It also comes with a HUD full of colors. It is only fitted for Maitreya Lara.

The necklace

My necklace is one of the free group gifts at amias. It’s a black choker tied into a bow at the side that can easily be dressed up or down. I love a necklace that I can wear with anything! The amias group is free to join. They’re also currently having a 50% off sale, and I definitely picked up a couple of other things while I was there!

P.S. My pretty new skin (but not the cleavage) is from yesterday’s Fifty Linden Friday. I’m in love! There was this tone plus another in Polar. Totally worth going over to see if they’re still on sale!

Pretty and Witty and Bright

Pretty and Witty and Bright

Hi guys! I have a quickie for you today. Just a pretty little dress that will make you feel like a princess and a lovely necklace.

I feel pretty

I picked up this fun and flouncy dress at Shoenique. The flower on the front is removable and the white spot on the skirt isn’t really there, it’s just a little bit of light from my windlight setting. It is the April free group gift but it is still available and I don’t imagine that it will go away soon because there is a whole wall of past group gifts as well. Just join the Shoenique group for free and click away!

Dress Sizes:

  • Belleza – Freya, Venus, Isis
  • Slink hourglass
  • Maitreya
  • 5 standard sizes L-XXS

I also feel lucky

There are three free lucky boards at Chain, currently stocked with two necklaces and a really great dress that I had to have! The boards are open to everyone, no group join is required. I did eventually win the dress (YAY!) but before that I won and photographed this cute little look. Maybe I’ll show you the dress later, but right now look how fabulous this necklace is!
