Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

For anyone who doesn’t know, the title of this post and my photo are a quote from the movie Pretty Woman starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. If you have seen the movie, it will make sense. If you haven’t, well I highly suggest you add it to your movie list. The shopping scene is one of the best in the movie in my opinion.

That said, I feel like this is how I would have looked lugging home all of the free gifts at the current round of Vanity. I also of course happen to be wearing a few. All the gifts are free, you just need to join the Vanity event group. The group is free to join. I picked three of the many free gifts to share with you that I thought really went well together. The outfit I am wearing is from Queenz, my sunnies are from Avada, and this lip color is from GO Makeup. Lastly I also picked up a little bit of bling by Clever & Cool on the Marketplace to wear with these high-waisted pants. Keep reading for more details, and peep the credits at the end.

Queenz

I wouldn’t dare try to pull off all this white in my real life, however here in Second Life it’s such a win. This cropped top with ruffled sleeves, and the matching pants are the free gift at Vanity by Queenz. The pieces can be worn together or separately. Also, the top comes in a version sans the sleeves. The pants (since I cropped them out of the photo) are fitted through the waist and hips, then are a long loose-leg pant.

Sizes Included: Yentaments BBL Body, Maitreya Lara, Ebody Curvy, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, 9S Jessica, Sking Katena

Avada 

The way a lot of people feel about shoes, I feel about sunglasses. There’s no such thing as too many pairs. These are the free Vanity group gift by Avada. They have resize scripts and a texture hud. The hud gives you 5 solid color choices for the frames, 7 options for the lenses, and 2 metal choices.

GO Makeup 

I love this mini HD lip palette by GO Makeup. It comes with 4 juicy red lip shades that scream summer. They also are free at Vanity with the Vanity group tag. This set comes in appliers for Catwa HD Lips and Genus HD Lips. For Catwa head wearers, this means you’ll need the free HD Lips add-on if you do not already have it. Don’t have HD Lips with your head yet? Head over to Catwa and get a redelivery, you need an upgrade! Here’s an awesome tutorial by Virtual Bloke about Catwa HD Lips and how to use them. For Genus head wearers, I believe the HD option is included in your hud.

Clever & Cool 

Finally, I felt like this outfit needed a little something extra. Thankfully I came across this cute gemstone belly chain by Clever & Cool for just 25 linden on the Marketplace. It has resize scripts built in, as well as lots of texture choices. I think it looks pretty cute as a belt, and is well worth the paltry price tag. If this one isn’t your style, there are a few others with the same price point, as well as several other types of jewelry.

#TakeaSelfie

Helllooo Everybody!! I gotta say I have been thoroughly enjoying all the tropical locations Second Life has to offer. I can’t help but smile when enjoying all the amazing scenery. It’s also perfect for snapping selfies, and before anyone comes at me for being vain I think selfies are all in good fun. I like the idea of celebrating feeling good about yourself. So take some selfies! haha That said, I definitely enjoy this bright colorful look. The top and shorts are a Pride themed group gift at Seniha, while my tattoos, sunglasses, and bubble tea are all free gifts at ACCESS.

Missing all the Things

Missing all the Things

It’s humorous the things you begin to miss once you can no longer do them at your leisure. Hello again Fab Free. It’s day 457 of quarantine, or so it feels at times, and I honestly want to go to the grocery store. There’s something to be said about being able to see what you’re buying before you buy it. Even more to be said for being able to do so without endangering your health in the process. That said, I’ll settle for doing my grocery shopping virtually for now.

My cute outfit for running those not so fun yet somehow missed errands is a free gift by London Girl as part of the Stay at Home Club. My groceries are free as well. They are part of a free pose set by Secret Poses, also in honor of the Stay at Home Club. I’m really quite thankful for these great gifts. The outfit from London Girl has a cropped sweatshirt that reads “Newbs” with the “N” scribbled out and replaced with a “B.” Cheeky, right?! lol The top and the shorts both have a color change hud with a few preset options for you to mix and match. Both the shorts, and the sweatshirt come sized for Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya bodies. The free grocery pose pack by Secret Poses comes in a set with 5 poses. Have fun, and stay safe out there!

All Sn@tched Up

All Sn@tched Up

Hello hello Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone is doing as well as can be expected if not better. Fishing in Second Life happens to be a great way to pass the time. Especially when you’re fishing for fashion rather than fish! There is a new “Fish4This” outfit at Sn@tch that you can fish for free, all you need is a fishing rod. I’ll tell you all about this fantastic and very versatile set at Sn@tch below, but first I’ll give a little fishing explanation for those who’ve never gone before.

How to go 7Seas Fishing

If this is your first time fishing, I suggest getting a “casual” fishing rod. You can purchase a casual rod at the 7Seas fishing kiosk near the Sn@tch entrance. There are other rod options, but I only use a casual rod. The casual rod will cost you a one time purchase price of 100 linden. Once you have your rod you can use it forever to fish at any participating 7Seas Fishing area. Now you’re ready to go fish for this outfit!

Sn@tch 

When I say this fishable free outfit at Sn@tch is versatile, what I really mean is it’s more like 2 outfits with lots of color choices. The “Done Dirt Cheap” set includes everything you need to complete the look even hair, shoes, and jewelry. As the ad says there are 23 pieces in total. The top, pants, and hair all come in multiple colors. The tattoo has an omega applier and a classic tattoo layer. For the top photo I’m wearing the top in purple, the slither tattoo, the pewter choker, and the skater skirt in black.

Sizes Included for Skirt/Pants/Top: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Volumptuous. Belleza (Isis, Freya Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine). Standard Mesh (xs – XL) + Alpha Layer

**P.S. The cute Reve Obscura pose I’m using with the book prop included is just 50 linden on the Marketplace!

Let’s do Brunch

Brunch

Hello Fab Free! Two things I thoroughly enjoy are brunch, and freebies. So for this post I decided to combine the two. I picked up a new group gift tattoo by Carol G, and the Fab Free group gift at Revelation. Also, the Carol G group changed, and is free to join for a very limited time, so sit back, enjoy some waffles, and read on. Credits will, as always, be listed at the end.

Carol G

You may have read or heard that Carol G made a new store group recently. Carol G has also stated that the new group will be free to join for a L I M I T E D time to give everyone enough time to switch from the original group to the new one. You know what that means? You got it, free group gifts with no join fees! The upper body tattoo I am wearing is a recent group gift that can be found at the Carol G shop located on the Scandalize sim only. This gift will not be available at the Carol G main store. Also, it can be worn by mesh and classic non-mesh avatars!

Appliers/Layers Included: Classic Tattoo Layers, Belleza Applier, Slink Applier, Omega Applier, Legacy Applier, Maitreya Applier

Revelation

Have you checked out the Fab Free Group Gift List lately? If you haven’t, you need to. There’s a ton of fabulous new gifts in there! I picked up this ruffled top and skirt outfit at Revelation for free with my Fab Free group tag. This free outfit comes in several sizes, and has a color/texture change hud that lets you customize different parts of the top and skirt. The skirt has solid color options, and a few cute patterns, while the top has solid color choices only. To get your free outfit head over to Revelation and look for the “Group Gift” wall that has several packages set out in front of it. The black/dark grey package in the front row is the Fab Free gift, just click it while wearing your Fab Free tag and the outfit will be sent to you. Also, if you’re not a Fab Free member, you can join for free by clicking the Fab Free sign on the wall at Revelation.

Just for November

A Little Bit Lingerie

Hello there Fab Free! Thanks for being here. I’m excited to share some awesome news with you about Carol G Tattoos, along with one of their recent Midnight Madness tattoos. Equally exciting is the fatpack group gift outfit that Masoom has out for their November group gift. Keep reading for all the details.

Carol G

From now until November 30th the in-world group for Carol G Tattoos is free to join. There are 8 women’s tattoo gifts, and 8 men’s tattoo gifts currently available for Carol G group members. I’d say a lot of these tattoos are really unisex. Additionally there are Midnight Madness boards with male and female prizes. The boards change regularly as well. The tattoo I’m wearing is one of the current Midnight Madness board prize at Carol G. It comes in several appliers with multiple opacity options and classic system layers. Do not miss out on this fantastic opportunity to join the Carol G group for free and take advantage of all the free gifts.

Appliers Included: Omega, Slink, Belleza, Maitreya, Legacy *Classic System Layers also Included 

Masoom

The November group gift at Masoom is out and it’s a full fatpack of this cute and sexy pants outfit. My first thought was that this outfit is a little bit business casual and a little bit lingerie, which made me smile. It comes in several sizes and has a color change hud for the top, the trim on the top, the pants, and the ribbon belt. The top also has the option of being lace or solid color. The Masoom group is 100L to join, and there are multiple group gifts available.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza Freya, Slink Hourglass, Legacy

There is Magic in the Air


There's Magic in the Air

There’s magic in the air this time of year. It’s when I feel most in my element. Having someone to share it with makes it even better! A recent free group gift at b[ELLE] is perfect for getting into the spirit of the season. It has a full outfit for the guys, and a cute dress with bat wings (not shown) for the ladies. The b[ELLE] group is free to join, and there are quite a few free group gifts available. For more info on each of the outfits included in this spook-tacular gift just keep reading. Otherwise, scroll down for full credits. Thanks for being here!

B[ELLE] Group Gift – Ladies Outfit

This halter style dress is every bit as cute on as it looks. I have to say I felt a little bit like Betty Rubble dressed in her Halloween frock. It comes in several sizes including sizes and an alpha layer for classic avatars. There’s a color change hud as well with 3 color choices for the dress, and 3 similar color choices for the men’s shirt. Also included are an adorable pair of bat wings which I chose to not wear.

Dress Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (small, large) + Alpha, eBody, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

B[ELLE] Group Gift – Men’s Outfit

The men’s outfit part of the free gift includes the casual shirt and matching pants. I like the fact that the print is just on the front of the shirt. I think it keeps it from being too busy. It’s really perfect for the season. The same hud that is used for the dress also works for this shirt. The jeans and shirt come in several sizes, and there is an alpha layer for both so this outfit is suitable for classic avatars.

Shirt Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (small, medium, large) +Alpha, Belleza Jake, Signature (Gianni, Geralt), Slink
Jean Sizes Included: Fitmesh + Alpha, Belleza Jake, Signature Gianni, Slink

A Little Dove


A Little Dove

Hello Fab Free! I’m glad you’re here. Recently I decided to wander through The Free Dove. I feel like you never know what you might find. Sure enough I found this cute summer outfit by Fatal Fashion that is either new, or I’d probably just overlooked before. It comes with a mesh top, applier shorts, jewelry, sunglasses, and shoes (not worn).

This free outfit is waiting at The Free Dove in the Women’s section back near the wall with the hair. The necklace, bracelets, and sunglasses are all free from scripts which makes them low lag and able to be manually resized. The applier shorts come in 3 color choices, and the top is mesh with a few sizes. The shoes also come in a few different sizes. To get your copy of this cute eclectic (and free!) outfit you’ll need to be wearing The Free Dove’s group tag. The Free Dove group is free to join.
