A Little Bit of Indie

Indie Style 2.0
I like to give myself challenges.  I had a half hour over lunch to “work” in SL, and I committed myself to finding a cool outfit to share with you. For this challenge, I could rely on any of the 5 Minute or 1 Hour groups I belong to and any sales I ran into while at a store.  However, my cap was 100L for all parts of the outfit (clothes, hair, jewelry, and shoes).

Safyra‘s did not disappoint!  Within the first ten minutes, a 5 Lindens 1 Hour deal was posted.  I ran over quick and grabbed the very nice jumpsuit on sale.  She comes with lots of colors. But….while trying to dodge the incoming avatars, I looked around and three OTHER sales caught my eye.  The outfit above is the top from the Set 010 Sunday Sale (35L) which comes with a cute bra/shirt, skirt and boots (the bra, shirt, and skirt all have a color HUD; the boots do not) and the pants and shoes from the Janice set on sale (55L) which comes with a blouse and HUD for both.

Sizes:

  • Kupra
  • Perky
  • Slink (for the Boots in the 010 package)
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Physique
  • Venus

I picked up the FREE!!! subscriber gift (a cool choker with a butterfly) at Zuri which went nicely with this outfit. I love the resizer on her jewelry. It makes everything so much easier!

I had picked up a bunch of No_Match gifts earlier in the day, so I decided to use my time to find the first hairstyle that went with the outfit.  This style is called No_Sea and comes with all of the different color fatpacks. This was a free group gift with 50L membership.

By the time I had picked out the hair and fussed with the colors, I only had 5 minutes left, so I ran over to my studio to snap this pose.

I managed to get everything I needed for less than 100L in the space of 30 minutes!  WOO!!!

Do you have a challenge in mind for me to do?  Hit me up in the comments below!!

Bold

Coming Soon

Bold & Beautiful

First off, I have some exciting the news to share that Bold & Beauty & Rebel Gal‘s store group is currently free to join. This group used to be paid, so now is a great time to join and grab their group gifts for free. My hairstyle and my golden choker are both free group gifts, and they certainly help you create a bold and beautiful look.

Makeover Time

I’ve been playing around with my Lelutka EvoX head lately, and have been in the process of a makeover. There are a bunch of freebies and cheapies in this post which I collected from all over the grid recently to put my new look together. I’m just going to list them all! Let’s go!

  • My lovely eyes are a group gift from Euphoric, called Hope Eyes. This is an older gift, but I wanted to mention that they recently updated the eyes to work with Lelutka EvoX heads! Just pop over to the store, join the free group and get a new copy of these eyes as well as the Magic Lenses eyes; both products have updated to work with the new Lelutka EvoX heads! The eyes fit Lelutka Evo/EvoX heads, Lelutka Origin, Genus, and Catwa heads.
  • The lovely eyeshadow I am wearing is a free group gift at Tutti Belli. The eyeshadow fits LelutkaEvoX only and it comes in several tones of shimmery colours.
  • Speaking of Tutti Belli, I also grabbed the gorgeous “Selfish Lipstick Collection” with my 800L store credit, which Jacx talked about at length in her blogpost here. The free 800L store credit expires today, and you need the free group to get them. This lip applier gives my avatar a much more realistic look, and it fits LelutkaEvoX only. The lipstick collection costs 499L, leaving room for more free store purchases with the gift credit.
  • My lovely, soft skin is from the 1L sale board at 7 Deadly S[K]ins. I visit this board almost every day and I try to collect any new skins! They appear and reappear often and each offer is only 1L. So if you can’t snag it today keep an eye out; it might come around again! This is the Mercy skin, and it’s on the board for 1L at the time of my posting. It comes in a fatpack of 10 skin tones. The skin fits LelutkaEvoX only.
  • I am also wearing a free neck fix from 7 Deadly S[K]ins which is designed to be worn with their Lelutka EvoX skins. It removes any neck seam completely as long as you match the skin with 7 Deadly S[K]ins tones! They have boxes out of these neck fixes out for free around the store.
  • The faux fur stole is one of the FLF fifty linden deals going on at Blueberry right now. The boa comes in a pack of colours, and it is quite elegant. It fits Reborn, Freya, Hourglass, Lara, Legacy, Perky, Petite, Physique, and Venus. This item is only on sale for a limited time, and you can read more details about it and see a 50L gown from the sale in my recent post here.

See you soon, FabFree!

Hey Fabbity Fab Fab Fabs!

How are my favorite group of sale seekers doing?  Are your resolutions still going strong?  I made a resolution to shop less and you can imagine how well that is going!  With so many amazing deals to be scooped up, well, let’s just say that I have failed miserably!!!

And for our fab free member Ms. AuroraDammerung, here is a smiling pic as requested!  I’m either smiling or my teeth are chattering because my tushie is cold from wearing this short dress out in the snow!

But I digress!  We are here to talk about fashion and freebies so gosh darnit, that’s exactly what I’m fixin’ to do!

Winter Weekend Wear

Here in the midwest it has been bitterly cold, with the wind chill wayyy down below zero. At home, it’s sweats and flannel jammy pants. But on those occasions when needs must and running (ie errands) have to be done, it’s jeans and sweaters. Siss Boom has put out a beautiful sweater as the newest group gift. This is something I would love to have in RL, though I would put a turtleneck or tee under it, in deference to the weather here. The Siss Boom Singleness Sweater Group Gift is scooped necked long-sleeved & cropped, included in the gift is a 5 color hud with the most beautiful muted textures. And sizes included are enormous. There must be a size for every type of body on the grid. To have this wonderful sweater for your very own, just hop on over and visit Siss Boom, join the group for 50L.

Pink Cream Pie January GG

Hey Fabbies!

‘Tis just me again with more group gift finds.  I can’t say enough how much I *love* Pink Cream Pie.  She just feeds into my obsessions like pink… and unicorns!  So, how can a girl resist?!

However today I have neither pink, nor unicorns to show you (maybe next time, hm?), but I do have this free adorbs sparkly dress.  The Pink Cream Pie group is 314L to join and there are a load of group gifts up for your perusal.  This just happens to be the newest one.  It comes with a limited HUD (can change color of straps and undies) and it fits:

  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Petite
  • Reborn

My cute hair is a free gift from No.Match on the Cosmopolitan Christmas tree, which is free but you have to join the Cosmo group, which is also free.  It is still up with loads of gifties as of this post, but I don’t know how long it will be up, so I would hurry on this one if I were you!

I know this is painfully short….  I haven’t had my quota of caffeine for the day yet!  Stay warm gang!!!  Only another 75 days until Spring!

Stepping into 2022

dd fp_008

Hey Fabbies!

So we finally made it to 2022!  Time to recuperate, regroup and kick this new year into gear!

New years came with mixed feelings for a lot of us, with the loss of everyone’s favorite Golden Girl, Betty White.  Here we were all waiting to celebrate 100 with her, she was an amazing spirit and how awesome the world would be if there were more like her running around!  Making people laugh and  doing all good things for animals….  ah well.  I’ve loved her since I was a teen (a longggg time ago!).  Rest in the midst of all the animal spirits Ms. Betty!  ❤

A cute comfy dress and some nifty boots.

My super cute dress is a free group gift from Aurica.  The group is also free to join, and there are numerous group gifts for you on the wall along with this one.  You have the option of wearing it with the lights or without, but I’m such a sucker for anything colorful and sparkly so I left them!  This dress fits:

  • E-Reborn
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Perky

My awesome tall boots are a promo from StephaneL.  They are only 60L and come with an extensive HUD for you to play with.  They fit:

  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Lastly, my toasty warm drink is a New Years group gift from Satus, Inc.  because, you know, you can’t possibly start a new year properly without caffeine!  Both the gift and the group are free.

PS… its *kind* of my one year Fab Free anniversary!  Yay!

New Year Brunch

New Year Brunch
Hiya, New Year’s Day is a time of traditions and resolutions. LOL, like most folks who make those New Year’s resolutions mine are pretty much done for by March. However, the traditions seem to stay year after year.

Sneaking A Taste

Until my 2 of my 3 sons had married, and the last one left home, we had a tradition, my middle son is a New Year’s baby, so every year at midnight we would ring in the new year with birthday cake, and a very tiny glass of champagne. New Years Day I would be up with the sun spending my day in the kitchen cooking a brunch feast for those always hungry boys, while they spent the day in front of the tv watching football games. Jacx seemed to think it was a pretty fair idea to recreate a new year feast while modeling Meander/Me Bonfire Top. This wonderfully detailed cropped sweater is a free group gift. Lemania Indigo owner and creator of Meander/Me is known for using beautiful textures on all her creations. And body sizes oh my goodness there are a lot. The hud for the Bonfire top is a generous 13 color hud in rich fall colors. I would like to thank our sweet Miss Caroline for letting us know that the Meander/Me group is now free to join, and she showed some really fun items from the shop here. There are 41 group gifts available, so joining Meander/Me‘s free group is like getting a whole new wardrobe. 🙂
