Pleasure comes in all disguises

Pleasure comes in all disguises

Hi there. I was just admiring my new shoes. Aren’t they great? I’ve got some other things to tell you about too. Two of them are free with no group join or anything required, and the last is a free gift for a free group!

The pose sets the mood

Poses are too often overlooked and always very important. I’ll stay off of my soap box for now, but it’s a sentiment that I’ve expressed before and I think it’s extra true in this case. The [west end] mainstore has moved, so to celebrate there is a free pack of poses out in the new store. They’re all cool, movement filled poses like this one. It includes 6 poses – 3 separate poses and their mirrors and will only be out for a very limited time.

But the shoes matter too

These shoes are a free gift at Ricielli at the Cosmopolitan location and they can be yours just for showing up. There is a gift bag at the store up on a shelf. Click the bag, buy it for 0L, and watch the magic happen…the magic being free shoes with no strings attached. They come in sizes for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique

Okay, the whole mess is important

Obviously, the undies I’m wearing are important too for modesty reasons…if I can even use the word modesty in a description of this particular picture. I got the ones that I’m wearing here from Elegance Boutique. They come with a color HUD so you can make them match pretty much anything that your heart desires, along with a few pattern options if you’re feeling sassy. To get them, I just joined the free Elegance Boutique group and than click on the vendor at the Cosmopolitan location to get my free gift. In addition to the HUD, it includes the panties sized for:

  • Belleza Freya, Isis & Venus
  • Miatreya
  • Slink Hourglass & Physique

The Prey group is free to join, and they also have a male gift available.

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

Mind Strong, Body Strong

Mind Strong, Body Strong

Why can’t RL jogging look this cute? SL me is all adorable and non-sweaty. And she’s not wearing socks, can you imagine the blisters? Okay, maybe I’m taking the SL vs RL comparison too far. I just know that when I found these shorts I had to wear them. This is another post overflowing with freebies, but accidentally this time. I went to build an outfit around my shorts and all the other fabulous free stuff was already hiding in the depths of my inventory. Let me tell you, my inventory is truly an amazing yet terrifying place.

Shorts

I really love these shorts. They are an in-store free gift at Hashtag for pride month, but they are still out. I didn’t need to join a group or anything, just tp in, give it a click, and they were mine! They are grey with stripes along the bottom and say “love is love” on one side. Only one size is included, for Maitreya.

Shirt

I didn’t realize that this free top by Vinyl had been out for so long. Love first showed it almost 2 years ago, but it is still really great. It comes sized for:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Lara
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Venus

It also comes with a HUD full of color options – it can be plain, say the names of different cities, and the bra straps underneath can be changed too or just removed. If you don’t already have it, then you need it. Just head over to Vinyl, join the free group, and it’s on the wall will a bunch of other great freebies too.

Shoes

These shoes are a Teleport Hub group gift at The Oak. There is a version for guys also and the female ones comes in 2 sizes – Classic and Maitreya. And they are super customizable. The HUD that is included has 8 colors and each part of the shoe can be changed individually. The possibilities are endless…well not endless but there’s like, a lot.

Pose

And finally the pose. I don’t know why I always list the pose last, it’s quite possibly the most important part of putting a picture together in my opinion. This one was only 1L on the marketplace here! Yes, please. Actually now that I’m looking again, there are a bunch of other 1L and 10L poses in Korper’s marketplace store as well. I’m gonna have to go back and get me some more poses!

Say my name, sun shines through the rain

Say my name, sun shines through the rain

Hi there! I’ve maybe gone a little overboard with the flowers today – they’re on my dress, in my hair, and of course all over my background. But I can’t help it. Flowers are always pretty and they never clash with each other, they just become more beautiful! Huh I feel like there’s a life lesson in there somewhere. I better cut myself off before this becomes another edition of “deep thoughts with Allison.”

Floral Dress

I love this sweet, floral dress from BEO. It’s feminine and sexy all at the same time and hangs just perfect. The more I look at it the more I like it, it’s truly lovely. It is only sized for Maitreya and comes with a HUD that lets you change the color of the belt. The BEO group is free to join and you’ll find this dress in the store as a free group gift.

Tippy Toes

These super cute flip flops are another of the Cosmopolitan free group gifts. I posted all the details of this event yesterday, and you can find links in that post to the others posts on the subject. These shoes come in just one size, which fit my Maitreya high feet perfectly. They include a HUD that lets you pick different colors, too. These will definitely become a summer staple for me!

Allison is wearing…

Mesh Body: Maitreya Lara
Mesh Head: Catwa Magy
Skin Applier: Deetalez Snjezana
Eyes: Avi-Glam Reverie Eyes

Drift To You, You’re All I Hear

Drift To You, You're All I Hear

I think I’ve mentioned that I love to explore and find beautiful sims in Second Life. Well, a few days ago I discovered this sim that I had never been to before. It is sooooo pretty that I won’t even try and describe it, just use my link at the bottom there and go check it out if you’ve never been. Obviously, upon finding such a gorgeous place, I immediately put on a flowy dress and took pictures of myself. That’s a normal reaction, right?

Lovely Lace

This dress is by MOoH! and I’m in love. It is short with bare shoulders but has long, loose sleeves – a perfect contrast. The lace is amazing and there is a HUD so you can pick a different soft, pastel shade if you prefer. I went with simple white and I’m very pleased with the look. This is MOoH!’s latest free gift for the Teleport Hub group, which is 10L to join. It comes in a plethora of sizes. We’re talking:

  • Hourglass
  • Ebody
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • TMP
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Venus
  • and 5 fitmesh sizes, XS-XL

Hidden Heels

The sandals that I’m wearing are really nice and go great with this dress buuuut they’re almost completely obscured by the tall grass in my picture. So here’s the vendor picture so that you can see what I’ve failed to show you.

Chic And Shoes Joy Sandals Freebie

They’re super cute and it’s a fatpack full of colors. It is a free group gift from Chic & Shoes. They come sized for Maitreya, Slink Hourglass, and Slink Physique. To get them I just had to join the free group and click on the vendor. It is upstairs on the second level of the store, in the middle of the room.

Let Freedom Ring, Let The White Dove Sing

Let Freedom Ring, Let The White Dove Sing

I love the 4th of July. Besides it being just a few days off from my birthday, it’s also just quintessential summer. The 4th of July means summer and summer means the beach. The beach makes me think of the boardwalk and that special time when it’s just about to get dark and almost time for fireworks. I love fireworks. And fireworks over water? A billion times better. Ah it’s truly the best time of the year.

If you don’t live in the US, this post is still for you too. The free stuff I have to show you is universally awesome, I promise!

Stars and Stripes

I thought I better wear my super cute and festive romper a few days early so that you’d have time to go grab it for the occasion. Just pop over to Elusive, join the free group, and it’s yours as a free gift! You’ll get the romper and a pair of red heels to go with it. The romper comes sized for:

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

Flips and Flops

I knew that I wanted flip flops to round out my look, and was so excited when I found a pair as a group gift at KC Couture. The KC group is only 25L to join and there’s a nice collection of gifts to scoop up for such a small amount of L! Among the free gifts are these great free flip flops. I would have happily paid 4 or 5 times the join price for them alone. The included HUD is full of color options for the strap and bunches of really cute color and pattern options for the bottom as well. There are sizes for Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink. I know I’l get lots of use out of these great flip flops…when I remember to wear shoes, that is.

Ironics and Peaces?

Sometime picking a naming pattern for my headings is a mistake, but I’m not a quitter, okay? 😜 When I visited The Arcade earlier this month I made a mental note to go back to snap some shots. So yeah, I was the annoying girl obviously taking pictures at an event. BUT it’s almost over so it’s not like I was taking up space and preventing other people from being able to tp in. This great pose I’m using is called Ironic Peace and it is free! It’s available from Pacagaia on the marketplace for 0L. Ger it here. I think it’s the perfect pose (at the perfect price!) in the perfect location.

Tale As Old As Time

Tale As Old As Time

Okay, what do you think of this one? Better or worse then the last 8 that I tried on? At least in SL we don’t need to worry about going back for a different size, they’re all already included in one handy dandy folder. If only RL shopping were as simple. *Sigh* Now that I think about it, a HUD to change clothing colors in RL and windlight settings to fix that dreadful lighting would be nice too. Is someone keeping a list? We need to make this happen.

Nevermind that I match the dressing room

When it’s such a pretty color, surely matching the walls isn’t really a bad thing. This very ladylike and elegant dress is the newest group gift from Belle Epoque. The group is 10L to join. If matching the walls isn’t your preference, there are a bunch of other springy, happy colors to choose from in the included HUD.

And shoes to match

I love a great pair of heels. These are a Teleport Hub group gift from G&D. It’ll cost you another 10L to join the group and you’ll get the heels sized for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink.

The Moon Sees Me

The Moon Sees Me
Hello Again Fab Free’rs! I have had such a mixed up day, nothing terrible, I just keep getting my schedule wrong. So I decided to retreat into my favorite alternate reality, Second Life, and share a few lovely free April group gifts with you. First, this witchy tube top from Oubliette. Then these kick ass unisex kicks from Versov.

The Top – Gleefully I picked up this “boob tube” top from Oubliette. It is black and reads “WITCH” across the chest. It’s the perfect warm weather top for the little witchy side of my personality. I love how cute it is on, not too tiny but still a tube top. To get your free copy head over to the Oubliette shop and join the Petite Mort & Oubliette group if you’re not already a member. The group is currently free to join, and there are multiple group gifts available.
Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Shoes – Run, don’t walk over to Versov and pick up these highly detailed unisex shoes. They are a free group gift at Versov, and the Versov group is free to join at this time. The shoes come in several male and female sizes, and have a color change hud that lets you pick between several preset colors for 9 individual parts of the shoe. I got the impression that the Versov group may not always be free to join, so don’t wait!
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Male, Female), Signature, Slink (Male, Female), TMP (Male, Female), Unrigged, Aestethic

Here are the details, enjoy!
