Glitterati‘s July gift is out and the store is generous with gifts. The join fee is 100L but that gives you access to the gorgeous current gift you see in the picture above plus all the past gifts (over 80 dresses) which you can pick up in a box nearby. This dress comes in all the standard sizes plus busty sizes, as well as Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, and fitmesh standards. You’re bound to find your fit. It’s perfect for a summery get away.

Have you stopped by the Hair Fair yet? Vendors are donating a portion of the profits to a good cause – Wigs for Kids – so its a good reason to spend some linden PLUS! many of the booths are giving beautiful gifts… like this gorgeous pony tail from Besom. This lovely mesh hair comes in essential colors and complimented my summery style rather nicely and was FREE no group required. Just stop by the booth and pick it up!

I decided I wanted some jewelry to add to my look, and found some pretty FREE items at Candy Crunchers that I really love. This is the Carissa Septum piercing and the Drop necklace. Either/or are yours FREE if you slap their respective Midnight Mania boards and they lockdown. Both boards lock down at just 50 slaps so get there early. There was also a board for some pretty rings too!

Driftin’

Heyya Fabfree

Driftin'

I don’t know about your part of the real world right now, but mine is freakin’ hot. So of course this is the time the air conditioning decides to fry itself. I need to find a cool pool and relax! If only the real life was as easy to that as Second Life.  I’d be right at home with this super cute pool floatie from Bad Unicorn. The ‘Mega Unicorn Floatie’ is one of the current Group Gifts in the main store and it was so cute I had to grab it. The floaty comes in a wearable and a rezzable version and only takes up five land impact so I have him bobbing around my pond to make me smile.

I needed a nice new swimsuit to compliment my floatie friend and Pixal Perfect has this hot little number as the 1L prize for the Around the Grid in 80 Days Hunt. This is the ‘July Swimsuit’ and not only do you get the cute suit, you get a HUD to change the color of the top with four choices. The suit comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L as well as in appliers for SLink Physique and Hourglass. The hunt runs until

Topping off my summertime cool is my new hairstyle from Mello, a ‘new to me’ designer. This is ‘detox’ and it comes with a HUD for seventeen wild and pastel colors. Detox is one of the current Group Gifts at Mello and the group is free to join!

I think I’m just gonna chill here for awhile……

Flirt

Hello my dear FabFree-ers!

Flirt

I hope the weekend coming up has you all excited and happy! I know I am ready for some fun in the sun and some fun under the SL sun too.  I’m starting my weekend with the Flirty Summer Hunt since we only have a few more days to play this one.  This is the ‘Amelie’ dress from K Creations and it’s the 1L prize for this Hunt. I love the styling on this mini dress. The soft colors and the feminine floral print… just wonderful. Amelie comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L as well as a FitMesh version. I found it to be a great fit as well as very nicely built.

My hairstyle is another ‘show-off’ today. This is ‘Gem’ from Little Bones and it’s the very generous free gift at the Hair Fair. You get the large, medium and small versions of the hair plus a Lelutka applier along with a very nice HUD with sixteen natural and not so natural colors.

The Hair Fair will wrap up on July 31st but you have until August 15 for the Flirty Summer Hunt. So get crackin’!

Catch Me in your Dreams

Catch Me in Your Dreams

25L Tuesdays are a dream come true for roleplayers in Second Life… though I think this special item I came across today would please just about anyone. On a Lark has a pretty camisk out that roleplayers may just want to add to their wardrobe… and those of you who wear modern clothes could wear it with a pair of jeans and call it a pretty shirt. This is the “Envelop” top by On a Lark.

You can buy this pretty camisk today in a multitude of colors (and I do mean a lot of colors) for just 25L each. It comes in all your standard mesh sizes, as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Belleza, Physique, and Hourglass, and each of the fits comes in two different textures for each color — a plain and a damask. Beware if you wear it alone! It covers the front but not the hiney (*winks*). I’m showing you a picture at the bottom of this post so you can see the pretty bow in the back that is the icing on the cake so to speak.

Pixel Box offered a weekend gift of a necklace Dreamcatcher that I added to my pretty look. This is a FREE TO ALL gift that you can pick up at the store. Sunday was supposed to be the last day that the gift was out, but when I checked this morning, it was still there… so I recommend haste if you like it and don’t want to miss out!

The Lady in Red

Lady in Red

There’s a fresh FREE lucky board at Entice (no group required) that is just yummy! This Rain Over Me in Gradient dress (with a 3 color hud for red, blue, or purple as your color choices) is yours with a bit of luck if your letter comes up. Don’t fret though… it’s right next to several other lucky letter boards, a FREE Group Midnight Mania board, a no group required FREE midnight Mania board, and other group gifts … all FREE. So you’re bound to find things to keep you busy while you wait for your letter!

This dress in standard fitmesh sizes as well as Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits, and includes an alpha layer for standard mesh bodies as well. You’re bound to find your fit!

The Moda board locked down the other day too, delivering me a pair of Cayla Wedges in red… woot! These matched my new Entice dress in its red color so well, that I couldn’t help remind you of this awesome FREE Midnight mania board. It locks down at 400 slaps and the pair of shoes changes out daily… so it’s worth smacking to lock down… just go slap it!

** Quick note to clarify: Since my Moda shoes are from a couple of days ago, today’s style and color will be different. As I explained in the paragraph above, the style and/or color available changes daily! This is just a reminder of this great free offer:)

A Girl and Her Bird

A Girl and Her Bird

It’s Saturday! And that means 30L specials abound… but I also have a special freebie for you today and a 1L goodie as well to round out a roleplay look that you won’t want to miss out on.

I stopped by Torvis Weapons today and discovered this beautiful red silk called Vidina on special for 30L. It includes the fitmesh camisk which you also get in Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink fits plus the gold bracelets, gold belt and a gold collar (collar not shown). For 30L, if you are an avid roleplayer, this is a steal!

Every archer needs a bow, and I found a very nice realistic one on the Marketplace for only 1L. It has both a scripted and nonscripted version in the box so you can save on scripts if you roleplay in a “write only” area, or if you roleplay in an area where GM weapons are used, simply use the GM version of the weapon. This “Deathrays’ simple bow” makes a nice prop and is easy to use. It was only 1L on the Marketplace!

If you are a photographer in Second Life, you might also want to stop by Lorien today and pick up the 10 pack of “Naughty Girl” poses that are out. I am showing you one from the pack that you can get today for just 30L. These are very nicely done and for only 30L that’s just 3L per pose!

A Girl and Her Bird 2

The last item I have to show you today is very special indeed. It’s nice to have a shoulder pet in rp, but realistic ones can be very expensive. Grizzly Creek currently has two on the marketplace that are FREE and fully functional with beautiful animations and movement.

I’m showing you the Cutthroat Finch but there is another beautiful bird you can pick up for FREE if you check out their store, as well as many other high quality pets for regular price. You might find yourself quite addicted to these gorgeous babies! This particular pet can be rezzed or worn, and is only 3 prim when rezzed! The shoulder pet itself is a low lag 6 scripts.

Fringe

Heyya FabFree!

Fringe

We made it! It’s the weekend…finally!  I don’t know about y’all but I’m ready for some free time. And speaking of freeeee….  I found this sweet and complete new outfit for free from No Cabide. This is ‘Marina’ and it’s one of the current free group gifts out in the main store. And it really is complete. You get the lovely fringed jacket, the tank top ( as one piece) the denim high waist shorts AND the upper cute sandals for SLink flat feet. The top comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-S as well as SLink Physique and Hourglass, Maitreya and Belleza Freya, Isis and Venus.  The shorts are FitMesh XXS-L and the same appliers. So I bet you’ll find your fit here.

Now, I’m off to the lake for some fun in the sun with the family!

Once Upon a PurpleMoon

Once upon a Purple Moon

Once upon a PurpleMoon… there was a great group gift and you only needed the group tag to get it! The group tag was 50L but the regular group gifts and special offers made it well worth the join fee! This month’s group gift is called Tiffany… and it is every woman’s dream come true…

This dress comes with a half skirt (shown) or a full skirt (not shown) add on, as well as mesh to support all the major mesh body types, including an auto hide for Maitreya bodies! This dress even includes a beautiful sculpt bow for your waist! All you’ll need is to find a great pair of heels somewhere and you’ll be set… just be sure you don’t leave one behind at the stroke of midnight!

Friday

Hello FabFree.

Friday

I hope this finds all of you enjoying your Friday and looking forward to the weekend. I have started my weekend off with some of the Hunts that are just kicking off. However what I’m showing you today actually isn’t from a Hunt. More of a haunt. Allow me to explain.  There are certain shops that I frequent even when they aren’t participating in Hunts or sales simply because I love their clothing. Cold Ash is one of my ‘haunts’. The clothes are extraordinarily well made and I eagerly look forward to their sales and Hunts and especially group gifts.  This is the ‘Logan Shirt’ in navy blue and it’s a free gift for everyone. The shirt includes the standard Mesh sizes S-L and three Fitmesh versions with one version being for The Mesh project bodies. I found it to be very true to size and an easy wear.

You’ll find this superb addition to your wardrobe on the ‘new releases’ board as you enter the shop. I can’t say how long it will be available so I advise haste.

I Remain Most Sincerely Yours,
Gabe's Signiture

Lazy

Heyya FabFree!

Lazy

I’m being so lazy today and no one can stop me.  Or would that be start me…?  Anyway, I found some really nifty boots for us today. These are the ‘Vintage Cowboy Boots’ from Shine by ZD and they are the hidden free gift at the Swank event. You’ll have to hunt around the Shine booth but it’s well worth the effort. The details on these boots are fantastic. I see them becoming very popular in my wardrobe.

My lazy shopping day is rounded off by some Marketplace shopping. I found this super cute denim skirt from Millenaire for just 1L. The Jeans Skirt comes in the standard Mesh sizes XXS-L and has a good alpha layer. There are several cute things on the Millenaire page and if they are all as nicely built as this skirt then I’m a fan.
